Name: Dante Ramirez
Age/Birthday: 16/August 21
God Parent: Ares
Mortal Family: Mariana Ramirez (38)
Years in Camp: First Year
Brief History: Dante was born on the outskirts of California deep in the predominately Hispanic areas. Growing up he was consistently prone to fighting with the other children that got in his way or made fun of his family. Often teased about his mother because she was going through relapsing issue from repeated narcotic abuse. Fighting against a heavy addiction for son, Dante grew closer to her where he was once resentful to the point where he no longer wanted the criminal violence around his family.
This led to him taking on anyone he caught trying to push his mother back into the addiction. At first he would beat down just about any person who got to close to her with it until finally the leader of the local didn't take kindly to their operations getting interrupted. Trying to scare him away attacking him at school he never backed down even though he would up injured badly through most of their scuffles.
It wasn't until others around him began to go back against the gang as well that he made his way into their slums to force him out finally. What he found once he got there was not what he was expecting. He'd been surveyed for a long time by the leader for reasons unlike what he thought. He didn't understand what was in front of him but as usual he had no care and charged for it. Their fight confused him cause the man had glowing eyes and seemed to be hiding wings but Dante shoved it out a 4-story window. When it landed it got right back up and flew away.
He hadn't realized it till then but there were strange things like this that occurred around him before. Like a random man that watched his fights with students while outside. He had the same eyes as that gang leader and kept everything concealed as well and that started his urgency to leave. A saytr had been around him and expressed his urgency to leave. Talking with his mother she knew it would be nothing but danger if he stuck around and made him go. In truth he knew she could take care of herself. The saytr had issues with the trip as Dante continued to attempt to challenge the few attackers that he met but was always pulled away.
Physical Appearance: Dante is above average in height but a bit bulky and muscular from his constant years of fighting with light brown skin. He has a scar along his body from a knife wound that he makes sure to keep covered when he can. He's very dark brown normally in a spiked upward fashion. His eyes are brown and seem to be dull unless he's fighting with someone. He keeps about as much care for his body as he can clean teeth and everything.
Personality: The constant years of fighting would normally wear on a person psyche but he continues to make jokes and laugh around with others. He managed to keep friends when he was in school making him rounded enough though he had a poor tendency to jab others a bit hard. Though he has an undying need to challenge others at anything causing him to make a game or competition out of some of the most trivial things. While he wasn't at camp he made a habit of beating up anyone that looked to be forcing something on another. Most believed him to have a protecting sense of honor but he always passed it off as an excuse to find his next challenge. He hasn't figured which one it is just yet.
Fatal Flaw: His bull-headed nature combined with his pride drives him to charge into whatever is in front of him rather than think first.
Talents: His neighborhood made him well versed in street smarts, his determination led him to get knocked down but never stay down taking whatever was thrown at him. He's shown battle smarts but only when something was in the way of his target. If he wants to get to it, he will get to it.
Weapons: He seems content on thinking he only needs his fist and hasn't been convinced otherwise yet
