A Hephaestus is someone or the name of a person who is sweet, kind and caring. They mostly express themselves through humor and are usually big movie geeks.
Person 1: I met Hephaestus yesterday, he was such an amazing person !
Person 2: He really is cool, and his film knowledge is impressive too.
Please don't reply to any post by the troll king known as Hephaestus or his replies of "your gay" will give him a woody.
