Mythology

Venus, Mars, Vulcan (Hephaestus)

Venus was the consort of Vulcan. Mars was the lover of Venus.

Vulcan is the God of fire and the forge (god of fire and smiths) with very weak legs. He was thrown off Mount Olympus as a baby by his mother and in some stories his father. He makes armor for the gods and other heroes like Achilles. Son of Juno and Jupiter is his father in some accounts. Married to Venus, but she does not love him because he is deformed and, as a result, is cheating on him with Mars.
