Prometheus a Titan and Creator of Humanity.

Prometheus, a brother of Atlas and one of the wisest Titans, sided with the Olympians gods in their war against the rest of the Titans.  As a reward, Zeus gave Prometheus the ability to distribute characteristics to creatures of the earth.  

Prometheus gave humans the greatest ability, intelligence.  

Things got sour between Prometheus and Zeus.  Prometheus tricked Zeus  into choosing the portion of bones from the ox for his sacrifice and saving the finest meat for humans. Angered by Prometheus, Zeus hid the gift of fire from humankind.  In return, Prometheus stole fire from Mount Olympus giving back to mortal humans.  This enraged Zeus.  He punished Prometheus by chaining him to a rock at the top of the mountain and sent an eagle to prey on him. 

Prometheus was later freed by Zeus's son, Heracles.
