Vulcan (Latin: Vulcanus) was the son of Juno and Jupiter. He was born with a limp. Just the same, 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. He made all the homes, palaces actually, for the top 12 gods in the heavens - the Dei Consentes. One day, Jupiter ordered Vulcan to create the first mortal woman out of clay. Vulcan created the beautiful Pandora.
