Sometimes, Marion questions himself as to why he puts himself in a mental state of torture all the time. Being a demigod - or discovering the fact that he was a demigod has taken some a serious toll in his time. Before then on, he only did study about life during Sundays to Mondays, and the rest of his time would be taking a look at some cheap deals at the department store.
Now he was in a summer camp in disguise made to train uneducated demigods such as himself, and boy was he feeling the pressure of it all.
Not only was he terrible at typical heavy weightlifting, but other regular camp activities such as riding a damn winged horse or climbing a rock wall spewing with LAVA.

He knows he shouldn't take it hard on himself, since he was a bit of a newbie at this demigod hero shnazz, but the fact that he was so incapable of doing basic training... it just set his mood down for a little while.
So he had decided to slave himself with learning more about the topics of Greek Mythology. In most cases, intellectualism has saved the world billions of times! Brains over brawn was what the damn world was all about.

And with that, Marion sat down on a lonely table ridden with different sizes of books with different types of topics relating to Greek Mythology and read on and on, maybe stopping for a little while to stretch and relieve himself from butt cramps.
He dosed himself with ears filled of music and listened non-stop to artists of various genres, and relaxed himself as he flipped through the pages filled of naked people with strips of fabric to cover themselves up.

Marion was in his element, and he really wouldn't want it any other way.
"Hermaphroditus, the god of bisexuality and hermaphrodites. Heh... sounds like my kind of deity" he commentates to himself in a hushed toned and continues to read more.

    l atom q. landy
Running a hand through his rumpled brass hair, Atom turned pages in his novel disinterestedly, reading the words but not really processing them. He was about a third of the way through and he still didn't care what was going on - the plot was too convoluted for his liking and the print was too small. When the words began to float off the page, he knew it was time to stop. He closed the novel with a decisive clap. No need for a bookmark, he definitely wasn't going to pick it up to continue reading any time soon.

His ears perked up at the sound of someone talking at the table behind him. With a discrete glance cast over his shoulders, he saw that the blur of another person was alone and seemingly poring over a mythology book. Atom glanced at the bookshelves for a good 10 seconds before swinging up his backpack and helmet. He then plopped both items unceremoniously onto the other guy's table and sliding into the seat next to him.

"Sorry, couldn't help but overhear. What you said kind of reminded me of this other story in mythology." His eyes lit up as he began to talk - Atom had always liked to tell other people stories. "/okay, there was this person named Agdistis and she was born a hermaphrodite. So, that freaked the gods out and they thought she was going to take over the world or something so they castrated her. Then they, you know, buried... it and it grew into an almond tree." Atom shrugged his shoulders. "A little later, some nymph came along and absorbed an almond - I know - and then... Surprise! She got pregnant. She had a son whose name I don't remember and Agdistis fell in love with him. Basically, it ends with her crashing his wedding and him going insane, running to the woods, castrating himself and then bleeding to death."

He wrinkled his nose and then grinned. "And on that note! Hi. I'm Atom."

"Hermaphroditus was an astonishingly handsome boy. He inherited the best qualities from his Greek parents; from his mother, Aphrodite, he was bestowed with charm and beauty, and from his father, Hermes, he received great athletic skill. He was raised by nymphs and lived his young live on the sacred Mount Ida, or the modern day Turkey.
"

Marion was immediately interested, he loved learning about topic relating to mother and godly half-siblings. From his birth, he was just a tiny crab apple sprouting from a ginormous ancient family tree.
It was vital to learn more about his relatives, even if he'll never actually meet them in person. It was strange, and pathetically sad, but it was as if he knew more about the godly side of his family then the mortal side of his family
"Salamacis, the naiad of a clear pool in the forest, was stunned by the boy's beauty and tried to seduce him. He, upset and confused by her aggressive lust, rejected her. The naiad fled, and the boy, thinking he was alone, slipped into her empty pool to bathe. Salamacis immediately leaped from behind a tree and into the pool. She wrapped her arms around him, kissing him, and begging to the gods that she should never be parted from the handsome youth.
The immortals of Olympus heard her cry, and on a whim, granted her wish. The two would be together forever. Salamacis and the boy's bodies were melted into one. The young boy, his body now with both sexes, was overcome with shame."

"...Well then." Marion raised his eyebrows after finishing the paragraph.
"That's quite brutal." Marion felt quite spooked as a reaction to Hermaphroditus' mishap. Maybe after reading this, Marion will truly be careful for what he wishes for.

He continued on reading the rest of the book, but as he was about to flip a page, he was startled by the sudden clacking and shuffling of another individual's items being placed on his table.
He was being greeted by another individual. He looked over at him, questioning his means of interrupting his study time.

"Sorry, couldn't help but overhear. What you said kind of reminded me of this other story in mythology."
Marion was about to question him, but before he had the chance to speak, he was interrupted by the other individual telling him a mythological story.
Marion had read up on this individual's story before, and had nodded along with his sentences.
"Oh yes! I have heard of this story before. The river god Sangarius's daughter got impregnated with Attis, an obvious handsome male - I mean, why are all these people so damn beautiful? Who knows man? Anyways, his spirit turned into a pine tree, and from his blood sprang violets, and such."

He grinned right back at him in somewhat of a snark, "I don't think you'll need to recite any more of these stories for me. It's Marion, by the way."
