Pandora was breathed into fire by the god Hephaestus ho enlisted the help of his divine companions to make her extraordinary.

From Aphrodite she received the capacity for deep emotion, Athena the gift of fine craftmanship and attention to detail, Hermes gave her the mastery of language and her name, finally Zeus bestowed 2 gifts on Pandora, the first was the trait of curiosity which settled on her spirit and sent her eagerly out into the world. The second was a heavy box, ornately carved and tightly secured, but the contents of the box were not for mortal eyes. She was not to open the box.

Over time pandora became obsessed with the box, one day she opened the vessel for all the forces of evil and suffering, and once released they were uncontainable. As she wept Pandora became aware of a sound echoing from within the box.

When she once again lifted the lid a warm beam of light rose out, her pain was eased, she set hope forth to offset the effects of the evil she had unleashed.
