Vulcan was the son of Juno and Jupiter. He was born with a limp. Vulcan was married (and deeply loved) by Venus, the goddess of love and beauty.

Vulcan is the Roman god of fire and forge. He was always making things. Like all Romans, he was a great builder. In Roman mythology, he was one of the top 12 gods in the heavens - the 12 gods that made up the Dei Consentes, the council of Gods. 

One day, Jupiter, king of all the gods, ordered Vulcan to create the first mortal woman out of clay. Vulcan created the beautiful Pandora.
