|Hephaestus as a Scorcher.|
|Position||Driver of '57 Thunderbird|
Hephaestus used to work as a mechanic, but an accident left him with full body burn scars. As a result, Hephaestus took to wearing clothes to cover his body and a helmet. He also helped Thomas restore a Ford Escort for rally racing. However, due to his appearance, he was unable to find work until he was recruited for the Scorchers. In the Desert Leg, he attempted to get Thomas' Roadrunner out of the track after it was abandoned.
