Vulcan, in Roman mythology, is the son of Jupiter and Juno, and husband of Maia and Venus. He was god of fire and volcanoes, and the manufacturer of art, arms, iron, and armor for gods and heroes. Vulcan's analogue in Greek mythology is the god Hephaestus. He is called Mulciber ("softener") in Roman mythology and Sethlans in Etruscan mythology.
Vulcan was the father of Caeculus.
