A Giant born from the Titans. According to Hesiod, Epimetheus was born from the Oceanid Nymph Clymene and the Titan Japetus, but Aeschylus claims the mother was not Clymene but Themis. Epimetheus had three siblings; Prometheus, Atlas and Menoetius. He helped the Prometheus to take the fire from the Olympian gods so that he could create man.
