HephaestusBrowser

Dave's Hephaestus browser's icon.

Hephaestus, Lord of the Forge, is the Denizen of the Land of Heat and Clockwork.

In Greek myth, Hephaestus lived in a volcano, and was the God of blacksmithing and constructed weapons for the gods. In the timeline of both Alpha Dave and Davesprite, Hephaestus became enraged when Dave broke Caledfwlch, and even more enraged when it became apparent that Jade wouldn't be entering the Medium, as he desired access to her Volcano, the Kids' session's Forge, to repair Caledfwlch. Davesprite obtained the captcha code for his hammer through "shenanigans". He then gave it to John, who made Fear No Anvil with it. This first time, Dave tried fighting Hephaestus, but the whole time the denizen was trying to give him The Choice. Figuring he was unbeatable, Dave fled.

The next time Davesprite saw Hephaestus was after he became a sprite. When he went to see him, the denizen was awake like before, and this time he gave Dave a different Choice, making him decide what he wanted him to fix. Dave claimed that revealing one of the choices 'doesn't matter' and chose to have him fix the Deringer.

If Hephaestus shares appearance with Dave's browser's icon, then he looks like a black humanoid-like figure in fire and with red eyes and mouth. It seems logical, since Hephaestus lives in a land that is covered with lava and was a human-like god of blacksmithing in Greek myth, which can only be performed by humans; it could mirror Dave's actions throughout the game, since he didn't actually do anything insane or reckless, unlike Rose, and mainly collected cash to buy fraymotifs. Knowing the fact he used Fear No Anvil and was told to be able to repair Caledfwlch in the Forge, he should be humanoid. It also should be noted that its eyes and mouth are the same colour as Dave's typing and his consorts' skin, just like Rose's Denizen. If the default sizeSburb Logo of Fear No Anvil is anything to go by, then Hephaestus, like Yaldabaoth or Typheus, is an exceptionally large being.
