Typically for Greek myth, there are several differing stories of Prometheus' parentage. In Hesiod's Theogony, he is the son of Iapetos and the sea-nymph, Clymene, which is the version I've used here. In Aeschlyus' Prometheus Bound, the other major version of the myth, he is named simply as the 'son of Themis', a female Titan, with no father given - presumably either Iapetos (her brother) or Zeus (as king of the gods).

Prometheus' Titanhood is also questionable - whether as son of a Titan and an Oceanid, he should actually be counted as a full Titan. I've called him a titan here for simplicity's sake, as shorthand for the earlier generation of gods.
