Prometheus is a mythological figure; a God who is credited with championing mankind through his decision to steal the secret of fire and give it to mankind. As punishment for this act, which gave man independence and a the starting point for scientific progress, Zeus shackled Prometheus to a rock and ordered an eagle to eat his liver every day. Being a God himself the liver regrew every evening so the punishment could start afresh. Prometheus was eventually freed by Heracles, himself a son of Zeus.
