PostSubject: state of grace   Mon Oct 29, 2012 12:45 pm


Welcome

to this small inhabitants of part of my mind. deep inside you can find the deepest of thoughts, the abyss of feelings and the darkest of secrets. in this small section of the endless black hole you could call my mind, you will read of happiness and tragedy, magic and chaos. the people you will meet here aren't like any other. they come with their own unique lives that only time will tell of how their fate will play out. only the parts of my mind that i cant even reach know the true fate of these people. maybe some are insane, maybe they just need a friend. read on, if you dare to, and meet the people that speak with me.

r a y allllh o e t ellll
d a u g h t e rllllo fllllT y c h ellll

the basics


name:
raya alicia hoete

nickname:
ray, if she likes you. she hates being called raya so if she doesn't like you, which is more likely then any other, you might as well just not address her

date of birth:
July 1st

age:
seventeen

place of birth:
New York City, New York

hometown:
up until she was fifteen, ray traveled the world with her father as he took photos in every country. she never once called a single place her home, she really never could

years at camp:
second year


the family


godly parent:
tyche, goddess of the balance of fortune

claimed or unclaimed:
claimed weeks after she arrived at camp

mortal family:
andrew hoete is raya's father. he met tyche on his first photo shoot in New York city. the goddess had been off work, on a , but still scouting out the city questioning herself whether it would be a good enough city to receive good fortune this season. She decided to test the civilians, choosing andrew to do just so. She suspected most mortals were the same, except for the select few she had met, and didn't expect much from the simple photographer. the goddess stuck close to the man once his shoot was finished. andrew had decided to walk around the city, take pictures of the architecture and taking advantage of the beautiful fall space. As one would say, the two hit it off, and spent a lot of their time together for the time andrew was in the city. In november, he announced he had to take his leave to maine, where his next job offer would have with held. the two said their farewells and the goddess returned to her duty on Olympus. Nine months later, Tyche came to andrew while he had been in Venice Italy, and presented him with their daughter and confessed to him who she really was, explaining much of what he needed to know to keep their daughter safe and to where they needed to be when she was ready.
Before her met the goddess and before he got his job in photography, andrew lived with his family in Wisconsin. From there he had set off for college in New York. Only months after his first semester, he got the call from an old friend that his family had died in a car crash. His mother, father and two younger sisters had been driving down the high way in their tiny accord when a drunk truck driver was driving the other way. The drunkard and all of andrew's family were killed. this may be why andrew never really minded traveling the world with his job. The only family he had was Ray and she was always with him.
Now, andrew still travels the world with his work while ray stays at camp. He can never help but feel guilty for just dumping her at camp, but he didn't know what else to do. To him it had been the only way. He tries to live just as he had before he even met Tyche, but he always has an eye open for her, hoping he might see her again once more.


brief history:
Andrew Hoete always did what he could to keep his daughter safe. He traveled with her, taking the small child with him around the world for work. It was his own way of keeping the monsters away. He never stayed in one place long and never took any job offers in greece, for fear of what Tyche had warned him of. He always took every precaution, which resulted in Raya growing up to believe her father was too protective. She didn't enjoy having to be home schooled, or being dragged along to every shoot, every occasional wedding, and every long meeting with people who spoke anything but English. she hated every moment she had to spend with her father when he had the camera in his hand. If they were in the hotel room and he even said one single thing about photo, she cut the lights and went to bed. only towards when she was fourteen did he finally understand she wanted nothing to do with his work. after that they maintained a pretty decent relationship, but Raya could never get over her grudge for photo.
because her father was so good at taking precautions, Raya rarely experienced an incident with monsters, but there were the very few couple of times that monsters caught the short lived sent of the young demigod. the first time there was a big incident, Raya was five years old and her father was in work in China. The trip would have gone great and without incident if there hadn't been a truck transporting harpies for cleaning and work. Andrew thought nothing of the truck, but Raya wasn't fooled by the mist. She unleashed the harpies onto the streets of Beijing, causing quite a scene and a lot of a mess that needed to be cleaned up. As the harpies flew out, one clawed Ray on the cheek, leaving three long scratches, that weren't deep enough to be serious, but the scar would be there as a reminder of her first encounter. Andrew made sure to avoid that city in the future. Another time, she was spotted and had a long conversation with a lone lotus eater, trying to offer the ten year old Raya a flower to eat while in Barcelona. You get the point that she wasn't very careful.
After fifteen years, andrew's work brought him back to New York city and the man couldn't help but hope to see Tyche, whom he never deemed to forget. he had never told Raya of her past and who her family was. Andrew barely understood it himself, how would he have been able to explain his daughter had godly blood? she was stubborn enough as it was. He couldn't have succeeded in telling her that, which is why he had hoped Tyche would come and help him. But as much as he prayed, the goddess wouldn't come and Raya couldn't see why her father seemed so fidgety. In the end, when he was tired of waiting for the goddess to appear, Andrew just reluctantly brought his daughter to camp. He hoped there she would have everything explained to her there, and he was right, everything was, but Ray would never forgive him for dumping her there so unexpectedly.



the looks


ray doesn't consider herself anything special, especially when it comes to her appearance. If there were one feature Raya really did like about herself it would probably be her emerald green eyes. She always secretly liked the way her eyes looked with the vibrant color they were and she often wore colors that would make them look even bigger. She always skipped on the makeup though. But that is even if you're able to see her eyes. Her hair is long and dark brown in color. Much too often you would catch her without a headband or hair band to pull it back. Her bangs aren't even, and her layers look ratted if she fails to brush her hair that morning. If you catch her on a good day, her hair falls down her back and stops a little less then half way down. It is a little wavy in style, which makes the length look a little shorter, but not by much. She likes it down like this all too often, especially because it hides the scar she has on her left cheek.
Ray is average height as she likes to say, even though she's kinda short compared to a lot of people. standing at a steady 5'6, she is actually strong and well built with some muscle, a lot of thanks for camp.
Cabin ten is a cabin that Ray is used to avoiding. She really didn't have anything against the campers just as long as they left her alone, but she really disliked the strong odor it withheld. Fashion is definitely not really her top priority. She could really do without the frills and designer shoes. Her daily wear and tear was usually just jeans, sneakers and her camp shirt. She'd throw in a sweatshirt every once and a while or switch to light weight combat boots, but that was basically it. She tries not to stand out, and goes more with the laid back look. She isn't trying very hard, but then again, who does she have to impress?



the persona


personality:
You could easily say that Raya is a very grumpy person who couldn't hold up a conversation if her life depended on it, but that would only be so if you didn't know her, and if you don't know her, then she generally doesn't like you. It takes time and patience to interact with her. She is actually quite shy, if you asked her father, but that would be the last thing she would call it. She absolutely hates being judged, labeled or criticized in any way. It isn't like she cares what people think, it's just that Ray doesn't like it when other people get into her business. Nothing ticks her off as much as when others simply assume things about her or anything for that matter. It doesn't make sense to her that other people would even care about how she looked, talked or acted, though, so why do they get themselves involved? It wasn't like they were important in her life, or she was in theirs. As much as she doesn't like to admit it, the only person she cares about what they think of her, is her mother. Ray was never so sure she would ever even be noticed by her mother anyway. Why would she? The goddess had enough kids to watch and enough duties up wherever she was that one more burden like Ray to have to acknowledge was highly unlikely.
If you really knew Ray, you would find she's quite easy to talk to. As long as you don't end up disagreeing on something, you could have a decently long conversation with her and once you get her talking, she has trouble stopping. She's easy going to a certain extent. You will notice that she has a subtle accent and it's a faint mixture of many European accents, as her father spent most of his time with work in  Europe. She loves talking about the places she's been and things she's seen, sometimes to the point where she is almost bragging, and sometimes she means it that way. She can be really sarcastic and silly at some points, but it takes a lot to get Ray to the point where she's comfortable talking with you. That always has a lot to do with it: comfort. You have to be something special for her to like you, and it often takes just as much for a person to end up liking her, too.
If there is anything that can really stand out about Ray, it would be her independence. She stands tall, with her head always held high. She hates being offered any help whatsoever. She believes other people bring her down and that she can't do anything to her fullest when she is apart of a team.
She's unreachable, as her father called it, but that's sugar coating it. Ray can sometimes just close everything and everyone out. She forces everything away on a regular basis but sometimes she will spend days hidden someplace, wandering around an area, surviving on her own, without a care in the world. She actually just recently got back from taking a year away from camp to clear her head of all the upset that had happened the summer before.


talents and abilities:
Ray hasn't been able to notice any special talent of hers, but basically she is very fortunate sometimes. She can get lucky with the small things and sometimes, those lucky times, it was a matter of her life hanging by a thread. It happens when she takes big risks.
Ray is also very tactful and clever. She is good in rough situations and times when you need to think fast.
She's a quick runner, and great at scaling the climbing wall.


inabilities and flaws:
ray is unable to forgive and forget. She always remembers things and holds grudges.
her eyesight isn't the very best. She isn't blind, but she could probably go with glasses. She's never thought of getting some though, nor does she want them. This sort of effects her ability to shoot an arrow, but she always has her knife for backup

fatal flaw:
Ray hates being confided to being with other people. She thinks that other people hold her back to the point where she can't be as good as she would usually be. She doesn't accept help or and sort of sympathy. She's stubborn that way.
She can also be very curious. There are somethings that Ray can't go without checking out and most of the time that is everything. She got her weapon from the attic, which she had gone and explored her first day. She is actually convinced the knife is cursed, but she keeps it anyway.




other


weapons:
a small bronze knife is the weapon that Ray keeps. She found it when explorinng the attick one day. It had a small memorial on it, one that said, "Marked by fate and taken by fury." Ray found the odd warning sign as a test, and decided to take it. The word, "fortune" is carved into the hilt in ancient Greek.
Lately, Ray has also been more accustomed to shooting a bow and arrow. she is a decent shot and uses the extra weapon when the time is more appropriate.


pets:
none, for now.

their song:
Because of You, by Kelly Clarkson

relationships:
none, yet.

the basics


name:
brooklyn kasandra bravish

nickname:
she goes by brook, but likes it when people call her brooklyn aswell

date of birth:
september 9th 1967

age:
roughly eighteen

place of birth:
Phoenix, Arizona

hometown:
Dallas, Texas

years at camp:
one year


the family


godly parent:
hecate, goddess of magic

claimed or unclaimed:
brook was claimed only moments after entering camp

mortal family:
vincent bravish grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, and never really left. He was often the outcast, always having an interest in the mystical arts. Anything classified under fantasy or science fiction was always able to grab his attention. He was never really favored among the people in his class, or even by the other parents around the town. He took up a job at a local library, and was there up until he had a daughter. He was twenty-two when he met Hecate. She had just been going around on her godly duties and, well bam. They had an attraction to one another the moment they met. Even goddesses have a tendency to hit it off with mortals.
ten months after they had split off, Hecate came back to the Library, holding a child wrapped in shimmering silver cloths and hidden away in the chest of their mother. The goddess came with a warning to vincent. she told him to make way to the east, farther from Navada, because  she had gotten a prophecy about this child and how she will be trapped in a place for thirty years without any connection to the outside world. Once escaping, she will have no memory and have to recover it on her own from the years to come after. So vincent moved to Texas where he had family, with his new baby girl and a confused and insane motive. If only that had been far enough away.
Now vincent is well into his old age, morning his wife who died in a small town off the perimeter of Pheonix. Sometimes he visits the old Library he once worked at and remembered how things used to be before he lost his daughter, before he met Hecate.


brief history:
brook was born in 1967, but at the moment this fact is a little fuzzy in her mind. She grew up in Dallas, Texas, surrounded by her family. She never really had problems in school, but she wasn't very social. It took her until she was in 8th grade to really start reaching out to people. She had trouble with school work every so often, which she would normally ask for help from her grandmother with. Brook had a severe case of ADHD, but her family never really thought of treating it in any way, nor her dyslexia, but that wasn't even as bad for her. She was always jumpy and hated focusing. She started to use talking as one of her ways to keep out of boredom, and that often resulted in punishment from teachers.
When brook was fifteen, her father re-married. They were to have an on location wedding in Vegas. Martha, vincent's fiance, had always wanted to get married and have her picture taken underneath the Las Vegas sign. brook thought of this a total cliche. She didn't like Martha, but that may be because they are so much alike. Martha has a bit of a temper however, and Brook never liked that about her.
The reception was to be held in a large casino, one where Brook was coincidentally not aloud to be. Her father had told her this wasn't going to happen but it did and Brook was seperated from her family at the reception. Her grandmother had come out to be with her once or twice in the quiet lobby, but soon started to have much to drink, and the visits became shortened and soon not even happening.
It had been almost midnight when Brook decided she had been sitting there too long, and had enough of it. Instead of going back to her hotel a couple blocks away, she wandered else where, deciding there wasn't much else to do, so why waste the night. She knew she was smart enough to not take anything from strangers or get into any white vans, but no one ever said anything about bright lighted, welcoming, kid-friendly casinos. It caught Brook's eye, and there was no going back. She was being impulsive, but she was angry with her father and her new step-mother for being so careless. Brook told herself she would only be a couple hours, but it would be much more than that when in the Lotus Hotel and Casino. That was in 1982.
What only felt like days later but was really decades, Brook met a girl in the casino, Callie her name was. She was kind and sweet. They became friends quickly and had great fun in the hotel. Then, much later, they escaped after sudden realization and how long they may have been there. It was fall, present day when they got out. Neither of them had their memories well intact when they escaped.
It took weeks for them to wander to camp, escaping the clutches of monster all the way. They were tired and confused and not really sure what was going on. The girls worked together though, determined to stay alive and together. It was surprising to finally see something with reassurance over the horizon when they finally saw camp. It was confusing, but they finally found where they belong. Now their next adventure would be recovering lost memories.

the persona


personality:
brook is kind, impulsive and sarcastic if you had to sum her up in three words. She's has this enormous heart that brings her to care for her whole family and she includes the whole camp in that category. She doesn't care for the heavy extensions there are with the gods and their family tree. somehow, someway, they are family. (just not family enough where it's weird to date each other.)
sarcasm is brook's second language. It takes up a lot of her responses and tends to over use it. Her kindness butts in at times when she might feel as if she offended someone, so she could probably learn to tone it down. When it comes to certain situations, she is rolling her eyes and laughing snarkly, but in others she is caring and concerned, bringing her bubbly, happy self out into the open.
brook is just as well as sarcastic and kind as she is insanely impulsive. She doesn't think much before acting and just goes with whatever is going on. Her talents with magic perform on feeling rather than thought so it is important for her to be quick in a fight. She rather not use weapons, but keeps it with her in the event that it is needed. She likes to be adventurous, though she really hasn't been on too many. Her quick trait of acting before thought is probably why she landed herself a nice big seat in the lotus hotel for forty=five years.


talents and abilities:
brook, being a daughter of hecate, has talents involving sorcery and magic. As sweet as she may seem, she likes to play with other people's or monster's minds when it comes to defense and offense. She uses magic in ways that others don't often consider. She takes a much less harsh approach then most and works on the mental
she is actually quite a good artist. she can draw and paint pretty well although she doesn't really believe she could. What she really has interest in is photography. She loves film though, and much rather use it than digital. She obtained an old fashioned film camp a little after arrival at camp, and uses it often
brook can play volleyball really well, and it's really the only sport she's good at and likes even


inabilities and flaws:
brook has the inability to recall specific memories, especially ones that might be important
brook stamina comes in little spurses of energy. She's either fully out, or none at all.
she has abandonment issues and has trouble getting to know people quickly


fatal flaw:
brook is very impulsive and doesn't think too much before she does things. She likes being spontaneous. She thinks it'll make people look past how she is actually quite scared of a lot of things, one of them being loss.



other


weapons:
the longer the time she spends at camp, the more her powers seem to start showing. The more her powers seem to become controllable, the more she comes to rely on them more than a weapon. Although she does carrying a knife, more only to finish the job, she would much rather use her powers

pets:
none, for now.

their song:


relationships:


their color:
#7D2252

other:
brook talks with a very subtle southern accent, but she doesn't really like to embrace where she came from too much.
She spends a lot of her time at the Pegesus and Horse stables helping with and training the horses. She enjoys being with animals a lot.

the basics


name:
genevieve morin

nickname:
sometimes people will call her eve

date of birth:
January 4th

age:
eighteen

place of birth:
Atlantic City, NJ

hometown:
Tewksbury, PA

years at camp:
third year


the family


godly parent:
aphrodite, goddess of love

claimed or unclaimed:
genevieve was claimed during one of her first dinners in the Mess Hall

mortal family:
Chris Morin is genevieve's father. he isn't the bery nicest man there is out there. he inherited this big company from his father, and what his father's father created. Chris didn't want to own a company, but he didn't mind the money. this was basically the only reason he didn't dump the company. The main building is in central Pensylvania and that's where the man has lived his entire life. He met his wife there, and they lived there for years and years after. To this very day they still live there, no matter how much chris has wanted to get out. Chris met Aphrodite and almost immediately began another one of his famous affairs. This one was different though, and lasted longer. Chris had almost gotten to the point where he would leave his wife for the goddess. But Aphrodite didn't let it get that far. she broke his heart and left him with a baby girl. chris never really recovers from his heartbreak, and genevieve is a constant reminder of aphrodite, which hurts even more.
Eileen Evans is Genevieve's step-mother. Eileen married chris four years before genevieve was born. the terrible witch planned to only marry the man for his money and decided if her didn't die of old age, she would get to spend his money anyway. She didn't even take his last name. she barely cared that her husband had an affair ever other weekend, as long as she got to spend their riches. Eileen never liked genevieve. Eileen was mortified by the thought of another child being in the house that they would need to pay for. Only two years earlier had Eileen given birth to their other daughter.
Marie Morin is genevieve's older step sister. the two of them never really got along. both of them were spoiled, but of course Eileen, who often handled a lot of the money, favored marie. genevieve never really minded. being spoiled wasn't really something she liked anyway...


brief history:
editing


the looks



If you knew genevieve well enough, you would realize that her appearance matches her personality easily. she has a long and thin body, standing at about 5'6. Since as long as she could remember, herself--which isn't very much at the moment--she's always been a little small. She is though, a lot stronger than she looks, but not really by much. She likes to think she can do heavy lifting when in reality it would just really strain her. genevieve definitely hates being judged just based on her size. She likes proving people wrong, and is confident enough in herself to do so.
genevieve likes to think her hair is her best feature, when in reality, to most it's her smile. Despite this, her hair is long and quite curly, dark brown in natural color. She usually keeps it down, falling down her back a little more than half way. She likes her hair especially curly and likes to show that off sometimes. She often does put it up though, especially when she's training or it is just simply bothering her.
Not looking closely at genevieve, you can see that her eyes are a bright green in color, but really change very often, not usually standing at one color for very long. They seem to light up when she smiles, which she does very often and when she does, slight dimples on each side of her cheeks show. She has defined cheek bones, a slim collar and long neck. She always has this bright feeling radiating off of her and without even trying at all. Her clothing style isn't much different from everyone else's, but she hates wearing the same thing over and over again. She has a lot of sweat shirts and t-shirts, jeans and sneakers, but also likes dressing up, no matter if there is an occasion or not.


the persona


personality:
the way genevieve is now and what she was like when she first started at camp could possibly be almost two entirely different people. She still holds the bubbly outgoing and flirty outlook and feel to her, but her toughness has risen. She's cautious and narrow with people. A broken heart has left her confused and she has her own way of dealing with it. When she isn't cautious, she is reckless and overly flirtatious. Her moods change excessively according with certain citations which becomes hard to deal with.
It's hard to find, but her kind heart is still buried underneath the cold sheet she has lain across it. Once feelings are developed for others, she is caring and worries as well at protects them in anyway she can. She's never been a fighter, but for the ones she cared for, she would kill. ~wip


talents and abilities:
genevieve is very persuasive and good at getting what she wants, but she often doesn't like using this ability, mainly because it is so close to cheating
she is fluent in french, english and like most demigods, ancient greek


inabilities and flaws:
genevieve is a perfectionist
she is a control freak, this sort of goes along the lines of being a perfectionist
she is very emotional. lately she has been able to hide some of that and has been more able to be stronger, but not very much.


fatal flaw:
genevieve has too much care for the people she really loves. if it came down to it, she would kill for her friends and family. Lately, however, it has been harder to fall underneath that category.



other


weapons:
genevieve had originally started at camp too nervous to pick up anything but a knife. Lately she has grown more confident and has decided a bow and arrow may be the way to go for her. she often carries a drawstring camp half blood back pack (magically color changing to match every outfit) that turns into her bow and arrow. if she wont carry that, she always has her knife either strapped to her leg or arm.

pets:
none, for now.

their song:


relationships:
hmm

their color:
dodgerblue

other:
genevieve wants to travel, but she's still too young to leave camp on her own. even though she sneaks out a lot, she can never stay too far away from camp for too long.

hephaestus, god of the forge

claimed or unclaimed:
claimed

mortal family:
Jessica Manning is an inventor, originally settling in southern Texas with her family before college. Her work had never gone very noticed nor had it been successful or been taken very seriously, but the god of the forge believed the woman could go on to doing great things.
Jess was looked at as unworthy of any sorts of accomplishment titles due to her heightened status. Her parents were well off, much better off than many. It was rumored her scholarship to Princeton was payed for mainly because her father was an alumni and her acceptance was a hoax. Teachers never stood up for her and her actual grades, she was never given a chance to become the successful engineer and inventor she had strived to become.
Hephaestus met her in college, his interest in her sparking from her beauty and love for creation. He was the only one to understand Jess's talent and promised she would be known one day.  Although she battled with depression, Hephaestus was her encourage and her hero. He helped her through the end of her freshmen year in college and they held in touch through the two seasons.
It was a sort of summer love that they shared. Jess began her struggles in school once more. Hephaestus disappeared after that and soon she learned of her pregnancy. It wasn't until Haven was born that the god returned and explained the situation and who he really was. The news was enough to drive anyone insane, and this is precisely what Jess went on to struggle with for the rest of her life as it worsened over the years. She failed out of school, loosing her acceptance by the end of her sophomore year. It had become impossible to juggle school, a newborn and her mental instability all at once.
Jess never saw Hephaestus again after he tried to explain.
She was moved back to her home in Texas and shortly after her parents were died. Her father from a heart attack and mother later in a car accident. As her mental illness worsened, Haven grew up. By the time the girl hit first grade, the town knew her as the crazy-wannabe's daughter. Jess stopped talking and communicating with anyone by the time Haven was ten.


brief history:Haven had always lived in the helpless shadow of her mother. There was nothing she could change about Jessica's condition. The doctors never figured out the real reason Haven's mom went crazy, Jess had lived a life filled with mental depression but it had gone un-treated and unknown by anyone but the women's parents and Haven's nanny, when Jess was older. It was like a curse was settled on top of Haven's head and would never be lifted. It wasn't like she asked for this type of life.
Ever sense she was little, Haven had always been big on creation. She used to have millions of LEGOS tossed around the tiny apartment above her mother's shop. She has ADHD, a very severe case, as her teachers put it when referring to her as disruptive and incoherent, uncontrollable and many other things that weren't all that positive. But it rarely mattered. People steered clear from the mad women's shop. Not even the bravest of kids would dare to set foot on the long nearly empty street where the Mannings lived.
It was late January when Haven decided enough was enough. What could she do with a Mother who was a nutcase when all's Haven wanted was to see the world and build it better? So she ran away, taking every last bit of money she ever earned for herself.
Now, the Mannings had never been relatively poor. In fact, they had been exactly the opposite. Jessica had inherited money from her parents who had been big in the scientifically before they died in a car accident, only a couple years before haven was born. Haven could have taken all the money she needed to survive on her own without a job for a year, but she was too independent for that. Having money never meant anything to her. It was only an amount of time before money could go to someone's head, and that made all the difference in life.
Making it to camp was the least of Haven's problems. You see, the thing about having a world famous lunatic as your mom, there never is a plus side. People may or may not recognize you and Haven is self conscious about that type of thing. Her mother was an embarrassment so she hid her face as she ran. Haven kept her hood up and eyes hidden from anyone who may want to question about her mother or why she wasn't back in Texas.
But somehow, Haven was led to camp where she learned many truths, but not all of them just yet. She secluded herself for the first couple days, wondering how long her secret could last, but once she learned no one cared about insane parents, Haven learned to fit in and even find more people like her. she still rarely talks about her past, it isn't one of her favorite subjects.



the looks



Haven is a strong girl. Her build is smaller, shorter, although she's got the muscles to do the heavy work all of her siblings do. She's probably one of the smallest girls in the cabin, but she doesn't let that stop her. She isn't very tall either. She stopped growing at around 5'3 and decided that's as tall as she's going to get, as much as she desperately hopes that may change. She would always take part in whatever work her mother needed, whether it be cutting wood, carrying sacks of sand, anything. That was basically the only way she managed to stay in any sort of shape after years with her mom. sometimes she would run, jog around their small town, but she had enough with the looks she got when she was out normally.
haven's hair is a dirty blonde but much darker at the roots and on the underneath layer. she keeps it cut at a decent length, only a little past her shoulders. it has a bit of wave to the stands so when it is wet it may seem a little longer. it is usually kept down, but sometimes you can catch her with it up in a messy bun or halfhearted pony tail. her eyes are very light blue in color with little bits of light brown. she doesn't do much to accent her eyes, like some girls where make up.


the persona


personality:
if you needed to describe haven in one word, you may as well call her fearless. her confidence isn't high when it comes to succeeding, but she is willing to try almost anything. she likes to take risks, because she isn't much afraid of the outcome. she can easily face things head on, usually no matter what it may take. When it comes to arguements, she is good with making good points and tactful ways to win them, but never like resulting in violence, or disrespectful words or statements. she isn't very violent unless it comes to monsters. then she'll pull out her sword and do whatever it takes to save her life and others'.
for a really long time, haven liked secluding herself. she still enjoys spending her time alone, but she has become a much more social person, and it's mostly because of camp. she doesn't like to dwindle on the past much anymore. she isn't proud to say that she hasn't made a good group of friends yet, and it has been a year. she has a couple of people she enjoys being with, but there's really no one she can call a really close friend. She is very easily liked as a person. outgoing, friendly, sarcastic, bright, jumpy. she still cant find someone to be entirely close to at all. it takes the right kind of person for her not to be shy.
the daughter of heaphaestus is known to be very loyal. she doesn't like the thought of letting people down. she doesn't want to put others through what she has gone through so much. she hates being disappointed. she is not really good at getting revenge, nor does she ever find it necessary, but it takes a lot for a bond to be mended between her and someone else after something that may have happened.
haven is a bit of a spaz. she's very often bouncing off the walls and talking quickly, basically not being able to sit still. this may come form her ADHD that her, like most demigods have.


likes:
Drawing : interestingly enough, Haven loves to draw and is incredibly good at the art. when it comes to her father's talent, she takes on the creativity and design aspect of it all. she pays attention to details and works most often with just pencil making it easy to do.
Alone : Haven has spent a great deal of her life alone and sometimes she likes it that way. simply walking on her own or sitting out on the docks for hours at a time or even downstairs creating the latest idea from scrap metal, she just enjoys her time alone.

dislikes:
Large Crowds : Haven much rather prefers being alone than anything else, but sheh  can deal with other people, she actually likes them. but when the group gets too large, it becomes too much to handle and Haven just shrinks away, not wanting to deal with the population of the area.
Rudeness : Haven is insanely sweet and affectionate. Any sort of rude attitudes and comments set her off. She gets angry when others are blatantly unkind for no reason at all and she will call you out on it.

talents and abilities:
haven has the most active imagination. she can come up with amazing plots and blueprints for anything. she can draw it, but making it into a three dimensional real thing is the hard part
she is actually quite a great artist, and has numerous sketches scattered around her room and stuffed under her mattress.
[font=tahoma] heat doesn't really affect her all that much


inabilities and flaws:
[size=11] haven is entirely self contious and cares a lot about what people think, although she has tried to get over that
she has a little more trouble with physically creating things, like her siblings can. she can imagine things so much better, but they don't always come out as she imagines. she's getting there though


fatal flaw:
haven is curious to the point that it is dangerous. she likes to know things, and doesn't appreciate not being told things. she will go out and discover things for herself if she isn't told.



other


weapons:
haven uses a sword that turns into a thin leather bracelet that she keeps on her wrist at all times.

pets:
none, for now.

K a t r i n allllD u r a n tllll
d a u g h t e rllllo fllllZ e u sllll

the basics


name:
Katrina Jade Durant

nickname:
Katch works for her, but so does Katrina

date of birth:
August 23rd

age:
eighteen

place of birth:
Blanton, Louisiana

hometown:
you can say where she was born was her hometown, but she has traveled and fought on her own since she was nine years old, so her home is no where, until she came to camp.

years at camp:
two years at camp


the family


godly parent:
Zeus lord of the sky and king of the gods

claimed or unclaimed:
claimed well before she came to camp

mortal family:
Phoebe Durant (deceased) was a beautiful young women who worked as a waitress in an old tavern in her little town of blanton. It was a small town and she had grown up there, living out her entire life of twenty-three years in that place, never truly leaving as she never left for college like she had planned years before. Her family wasn't as well off as most of the others she knew. No matter how hard she tried, she wouldn't qualify for enough scholarships to pay any tuition. The money she raised up until the point when she met Zeus was going to be spent on a tuition some day, but it turned into funds for a baby.
the god purposely bumped into the small town girl one evening after her shift at the bar one winter fall winter evening and they spilled their worlds to each other. Zeus, going a little heavy on the wine, falling for her pureness, told her who he was and that he had been watching her for weeks. Phoebe was in no way offended or scared by this and simply invited the man that asked her out to late night drinks to stay the night in her tiny apartment. they didn't see each other again after that night until Katrina was born, nine months later, and the god explained even further of the world their daughter was born into. he left a weapon to his daughter, for protection one day, knowing she would have to fight for herself soon enough. Phoebe never planned to give the knife to her daughter.
she said that having Katrina ruined her life, even though it had already been going down hill from that point. shortly after kicking her daughter from her home in Louisiana, the young demigod's lingering scent still brought about monsters and a cyclope ended up killing Phoebe. Katrina, even today, does not know this.


brief history:
early life was hard for katrina. her mother never wanted the burden of having a kid so katch just turned out to be an expensive pest that lived in their small home. from a young age she had learned to fend for herself as her mother wouldn't end up coming home until very late in the evening and leaving for "work" even earlier in the morning day by day. pheobe had told katrina everything about her father, although she made it sound like zeus was an awful good for nothing god that cared for no one but himself. it wasn't too far off of an insult, but katrina had trouble believing it all. her mother had always rejected her, not truly wanting her around. she hated the thought of both her parents being awful. she understood her past, though, her heritage with the gods, and realized soon enough what she was and what she needed to do.
her mother had told her when she was very young what she was and how disgusting and awful she was for being a demigod. on her ninth birthday, katrina went snooping, hoping that this year her mother didn't forget her birthday and maybe there was a gift hiding somewhere for her in phoebe's things. what she found was not expected but she took it anyway. a knife, long and sleek, bronze in color was stashed away in a shoebox hidden far in her mother's closet. writings she could not yet translate were written on the hild and carved in a spiral arournd the long blade. katrina showed her mother with thanks in her eyes, but phoebe just screamed and grew very angry and upset. not too soon after, the monsters started attacking, no doubt brought about by katrina's new realizations of who she was, or rather, what she was, much more fully than before. as her scent strengthened, her mother grew to resent the child even more. it built up inside of katrina. the rejection and loathing her mother held strongly towards her. it was impossible for her to deal with and eventually she gave up and left, partially being kicked out as well, abandoned. a nine and a half year old girl on her own in the awful, horror-filled world of the united states and the mother didn't have a care in the world.
the girl trained herself. she read books in libraries all over the state, wandering and learning on her own the best she could with her heavy dislexia. frustration would often send her temper flaring wildly and librarians would kick her out. she stole any food she could find and slept in sheds and large garbage containers. surviving was difficult for her and once lasting a total of two years, she wanted to give up once again, but fear struck her once more. with the monsters she faced, what was really going to await her if she faced death. was it worse or better than the hell she lived? she didn't want to take the chance, she told her herself, but the thoughts have never left her mind.
when she was fourteen, katrina met another halfblood, traveling on their own like her. his name was owen and he was two years older than her, but he didn't know who his godly parent was, but he knew of most of the things in their world that mortals didn't. he was an artist and musician, strong and talented with a bow and arrow. along his own travels he had obtained a sword, disguised as a leather band for an arm. finding no use for it himself, owen gave it to katrina and she accepted with heavy enthusiasm, learning to fight with the new weapon as well. he traveled with katrina for a long period of time. they even planned on finding refuge at a place he had learned of called camp half blood, a place katch was very reluctant to go.  at that time they were in south carolina.
they both made a point of making their journey slow and steady as they traveled north and beyond and then south again. neither of them were too caught up in the idea of a camp for kids like them, but they also preferred it over constant fighting. breaks would be nice from the constant battle they fought, but still, they enjoyed the time to travel and explore alone. it was almost katrina's sixteenth birthday when a surprise attack from a dracanae ending up killing owen. her depression worsened again as the first boy she learned to love died before her eyes. she never did get over the event and doesn't believe she ever will. finishing her travels she decided to make a straight line to the camp they had spoken of for so long. a safe haven it seemed to be almost.
before she arrived she got a tattoo with the money she had left that was saved from their thefts and earnings on the streets. a sketch he had drawn for her, a tree and a lightning bolt striking it. it remains her only memory of him as she forces herself to restrain from thinking of him and how much fault she had in his death.



the looks


Katrina is the kind of girl that says she doesn't have a care in the world for the way she looks, but really does. It doesn't come out to the point where she cakes on makeup and fake eyelashes, but she likes to look presentable at most times and not like a slob. Her sense of style is simple, but not too casual. She stays away from the routine camp tee and shorts with the usual vans, but sometimes subsides to it. She likes nice tops, form fitting to shape her small frame. her bottoms are more usual than anything else, sticking with the normal jean, often distressed at the knees and thighs.
Her eyes are what are most striking about her appearance. Katrina has these orbs of light electric blue sparking color around her deep black pupils. It is often the first thing someone will notice about her as they stand out the most no matter what she wears. To Katch, her hair is quite a difficult endeavor she doesn't usually face. It is a very curly and thin build to the touch. It is soft but very fragile and the only part of her that is. The strands fall briskly past her shoulders but not much further than that. The color is light, almost bleach-like, blonde. She sometimes dyes the roots and undertones to create a look that makes it seem darker to others.
the girl's face is is round atop with a pointed chin roughly like a heart. Her skin has a warm and ruddy undertone and holds a fairly even tan above that and across her body. She takes care of her skin, but tans so easily in the summer, it lasts most of the year. Katrina has a fairly long neck that matches the rest of her body that falls to a total length of 5'9 or 69in. she is agile and lean with a strong build that holds even muscles from the years of training she has endured. Her posture is even and strong while she is constantly on her toes, knowing that being alert is what keeps a demigod alive for as long as possible. With years of running behind her, she knows just how to act and stand in specific situations, her body reacting routinely at every sound.
scars scatter themselves all over her body from head to toe. the most notable is the thin scar that runs through her left eyebrow. others can be found on her arms, legs, knees and dozens of other places too. As an emancipated teen, Katrina got a tattoo on her back, detailed and quite large, up most of her left backside, at the age of sixteen only weeks before arriving at camp. It is of a lightning bolt striking an elm tree, symbolizing to her the sacrifices she's made and inner strengths she has kept within for the world she was shot into unintentionally.



the persona


personality:
Katrina is strong in many ways other than physically. For years she has battled with depression along with borderline personality disorder, impulse control disorders, and of course the usual ADHD and Dyslexia like many other demigods. most of her life these have gone untreated and over looked by family and unnoticed by people she has met in camp. Especially when she was on her own, Katrina has contemplated given up but her fear of her uncle's realm, the underworld is often what keeps her.  Though she has never put the thought aside, she puts up with a lot of her stress and hardships in order to stay alive against monsters and protecting the only place she has ever truly called home: Camp Half Blood.
Katrina has the potential to be a great leader. She is brave, tactile and smart, and a great fighter. She has been through enough where her sense of judgment is better than many. Katrina is encouraging in battle and life-threatening situations, anger powering her words. All these traits that define her making her a successful candidate, but truly, leadership and responsibility are two of the last things she wants on her shoulders. Mistakes happen often and she doesn't want to be the reason why dozens of people lose their lives. Although she is confident in herself and her ability to strategize, she fears being caught up in situations where a bad thing could become her fault. Katrina likes to work alone; teams are not her preferred style of work.
Katrina's confidence is in herself but lacking in others. Her independence driven by confidence is what she thinks is keeping her safe. She doesn't associate well with others not only as a team but on a social level. along with her personality disorder come the side effects of not associating herself well with others. She is moody and unable to hold conversations for very long before snapping. Katrina has had minor addictions to alcohol and smoking as well as other substances. Although she has forced herself to quit the smoking, withdrawal from other things lead to further aggravation and mood swings as her body fails to handle the temporary absence. her anger shows constantly as her temper is short and her patience is weak. Easily annoyed she gets aggravated with herself and others. She tries to and hates that she can’t communicate, but nothing helps her; no one helps her.


likes:
Music : Katrina loves to listen to chords and instruments. Wordless songs are her favorite. it has always been a goal of hers to learn how to play an instrument and make music, but she has never taken up the challenge, nor have had any time.
Storms : Typical right? Katch loves all sorts of storms but especially thunderstorms. when it rains, she goes for a walk. when there's thunder she walks to the highest hill and gazes as the lightning dances through the horizon.
Art : another thing the daughter of zeus wishes she could do was draw. She loves all sorts of masterpieces from sketches to sculptures. She especially enjoys black and white shading and painting. The tattoo on her back is actually a drawing designed by a friend of hers that she lost when she was fifteen to an attack from a dracanae.

dislikes:
Quiet : katrina is restless and hates it when the world is silent. she is often found with music blasting in her ears in a place that would rather be quiet and peaceful. soundless rooms and areas leave room for thought and she hates being caught up in her own head.
Country Music : There is just something about it she cannot stand. She avoided southern states on her travels, especially those cities like Nashville.

talents and abilities:
Katrina is capable of creating weather changes. she can control bad weather only, bringing it or sending it away but only in certain areas. She is incapable of preventing mass storms like hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes (obviously), but when it comes to rain, winds and small, short lived thunder storms, she's gotten it down with a lot of practice. The only thing she has yet to fully contain control over is lightning. She cannot find the ability to control one straight line of energy. practicing is difficult as well. It usually ends in an un-targeted and unsuspecting tree catching fire, or a very startled demigod being thrown from his position from weak cross fires. She drains though, nothing has ever failed to drain her and the larger the attempt and longer she withholds it, the more she needs a nap.
Different atmospherics pressures affect her ability to do so, but she can move the winds to help her glide and levitate through the air. She's never tried more than a couple feet above the ground, but she doesn't believe she can do much better anyway.


inabilities and flaws:
Katrina actually cant swim. She doesn't know how to and doesn't plan on learning. Like many of her siblings she prefers to stay out of the domains of her uncles. High in the sky and far away from water is a nice place to be in her eyes.
As stated before, Katch is awful at building relationships and if she ever does they often turn into unhealthy and unstable ones much caused by her lack of commitment and inability to control her emotions and tense levels of stress and nerves.

fatal flaw:
her confidence in being independent is overpowering and dangerous for a girl like her. teamwork is vital but to her it's nothing. she likes things to be done a certain way and no one but herself can do that.



other


weapons:
Katrina carries a sword, a plane old sword that has been with her since it was too large for her strength at age nine. It carefully stores itself as a thick arm band that securely wraps itself snugly halfway between her shoulder and elbow. Pull one of the leather strings holding it in a tied place, and the string forms the hilt while the blade grows in less than a few seconds.
Katrina also never leaves anywhere without the knife she found whens he was nine. power in strength but also in mind, carried with you, the will to survive is engraved in greek letters on the hilt and up onto the blade of the sword.


pets:
none, for now.
