Name: “Tiberius Winters.” Tiberius Magnus Winters
Nickname: “I’ve got two.” Tibs, Ty.
Gender: “I am a boy.” Male
Birthday/Age: “I am sixteen going on seventeen. No, Ty, don’t make a Sound of Music reference.” 4th of December 1997
Godly Parent: “Mighty mighty Aphrodite.” Son of Aphrodite, the goddess of love.
Claimed: “Yep.” Yes
Years at Camp: “I have been here for one year.” One
Mortal Family: “My father, Bradley, Lucy, my stepmother, Charlotte and Eponine, my sisters, and Gabriel and Victor, my brothers.” Bradley Winters (Father) Bradley Winters. Where to begin? First off, he has dark brown hair and blue eyes. Well, he loved his son dearly, but often did not show it in the right ways. Instead of praising Tiberius, he merely just patted his son’s head and muttered good job. Bradley tries to connect with his son, but Ty just reminds him of Aphrodite, who broke his heart. He was a good father in the sense that he raised his children to be smart and successful with good morals. Bradley met Aphrodite when he accidently spilled coffee on her. She let him pay for the dry cleaners, (naturally.) and then afterwards asked him if he would like to go out on a date with her (naturally). After a while they fell in love and moved in together, despite Aphrodite knowing she couldn’t be with Bradley. Nine months later they had a son, which they named Tiberius Magnus Winters. Soon, Bradley asked Aphrodite if she would like to marry him, the goddess was torn. He was a mere mortal and they couldn’t be together. She said no, and ran off crying, never to be seen by Tiberius (who was only one at the time) or Bradley again.
Lucy Winters (Stepmother) Lucy is Bradley’s first and only wife. She met Bradley when Tiberius was three. She loved Tibs at first sight and promised to treat him like her own children. Bradley and her got married after a year of dating, and Lucy seemed to bring her husband out of his depressed stupor. Lucy has blond hair and brown eyes and is very warm and comforting, but very naïve. In the next years or so, she bore Bradley children. A set of twins, Charlotte and Gabriel, a daughter, Eponine, and another son, Victor. Despite their large number, Lucy makes things work. Her husband works as a lawyer, and she works part time as a PA (Physicians Assistant) so they are well off.
Charlotte Winters (Half sister) Charlotte is five years younger than Tiberius. When she and Gabriel were first born, her brother didn’t like her because he was supposed to be the baby of the family, not her. But after a while, Ty seemed to warm up to her and now they are best friends. She looks like her father, but has her mother’s eyes. Like Tiberius, she is very quiet and thoughtful, unlike her twin brother, Gabriel. Charlotte likes to confide in Tibs for everything, whether it is schooling issues or sibling problems, he is the first person she goes to because they have a loving and trusting relationship. You can tell she was sad when Tiberius was kidnapped, because she was emotionally torn for about a week after he left, sitting in her room and crying because she missed her brother.
Gabriel Winters (Half Brother) Gabriel is Charlotte’s twin and Tiberius’s younger brother. He and his sister look very much alike, though he has blue eyes exactly like Bradley’s. Tiberius and Gabriel are very different, not only in looks, but in personalities as well. Where Gabe is loud and outspoken, Tibs is quiet and thoughtful. Though they don’t mix well, they still can stand to be with each other in the same room, and Gabriel often plays with Tiberius because he can’t stand Avery and to him Ponine is boring. Out of everyone in his family, Gabe will most likely become a jock, because he is very sporty. His life ambition is to be in either the NFL or the Marines.
Eponine Winters (Half sister) Ponine is seven years younger than Tiberius and two years younger than the twins. She is very odd, always having a dreamy look on her face. She has her mother’s personality and blonde hair but her father’s eyes. Eponine believes in love at first sight even though she is much to young to even be thinking about dating. She is very much a Disney girl, often pretending that she is an actual princess. Because Eponine is the youngest girl in the family, Bradley and Lucy spoil her rotten, so therefore Ponine is a spoiled brat and also very girly. Most people fall under her charm but Tiberius doesn’t. He loves his baby sister, it’s true, but she can be really mean and bossy, which is a trait she has all her own.
Victor Winters (Half brother) Little Victor Winters is the youngest of his large family. Ten years younger than Ty he is the baby of the family, and everyone treats him like it. He has a very delicate bone structure, being a sickly child. He looks exactly like his mother but he is very annoying. Tiberius doesn’t like Victor and their personalities clash a lot. Victor is more close to Ponine than anyone, and he often is the result of dress up, being put in a Cinderella dress and lipstick by his older sister. He’s to young to say no, and so it is up to Tiberius and the older siblings to stop it from happening because their parents are at work a lot.
Brief History: “Pretty subtle. Nothing exciting really happened…” Tiberius can only remember bits and pieces of his real mother. The way she glowed, how pretty her blurred and dimmed face was in his memory. His first clear memory was at the young age of three when his father had got a new girlfriend and he told Ty how happy they were going to be as a family and that he had a new mother. At first, Tibs couldn’t understand why his father would marry another woman because at his age, he didn’t know that his birth mother wasn’t going to come back. At first, he was very resentful of Lucy, but after a while got over the fact that she was going to be his step mother whether he liked it or not. When that happened, they became very close and then Tiberius was the ring bearer at the wedding, as he was to young to be Bradley’s best man.
When Tibs was old enough to go to school, Bradley had hired a tutor to homeschool him, because he didn’t like the public school system. Once he began to read and write, Tiberius found it difficult, and when he was taken to the doctors to be examined, he was found to have a major case of dyslexia, and ADHD, but that was minor. Still, Tiberius soaked up learning like a sponge and he read French, Italian, English, Spanish, and some Greek before he was fifteen.
He had many siblings, some he had grown close to, and some he still loved but avoided so that they didn’t rip each other’s heads off during the day when Bradley and Lucy were at work. Charlotte, Gabriel and Ty worked on keeping Eponine and Victor out of trouble, and they were like three peas in a pod. They did everything together. Tibs’ life was well privileged and he was well off. He loved everything that he had and didn’t take anything for granted. The only thing he wanted was his father to treat him like he treated his other children, with love and kindness instead of with a cold heart. To Tiberius, it seemed that Bradley hated him, and he didn’t understand why.
One day, when Bradley was at his law firm and Lucy was at her office in the hospital, Tiberius and Charlotte were playing chess, while Gabriel was making food and Eponine and Victor were reading Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales. A knock came at their apartment door. Tiberius, being fifteen and therefore the oldest, went to answer it. He didn’t even open the door all the way when hands came and snatched him, pulling him away from all that he had known. He screamed for help, but no one came to his aid. The mysterious person clamped his hand over Ty’s mouth and they put him in the back of a car where they started to drive into the forest, a part of New York City he’d never been in. After a while, Tiberius noticed that the man had horns sticking out of his head, and using his knowledge of Greek mythology, figured out that the person who had kidnapped him was in fact a satyr. He tried to escape, but it was futile, there were more goat legged people around him, keeping him inside the car.
Once they arrived at Camp Half Blood, Tiberius was furious. He demanded to know why he was kidnapped and the satyr explained in a calm voice that monsters were planning on raiding his home, and they were protecting not only him, but his family as well. After a minute of coming to terms with everything, Tibs called his parents and told him that he was a half-blood, and that he was going to stay at a camp for people like him for a while. After promising to write, Tibs entered the camp. That night at the campfire, Tiberius was quickly claimed for Aphrodite, and his cabin welcomed him with opened arms.
Physical Appearance: “I am so different than anybody in my real family. It’s cool how genetics work.” Tiberius Magnus Winters looks nothing like his family members. While they all have blond or brown hair, he has hair as black as night and eyes as grey as ash. He doesn’t know where he gets those traits from, but he enjoys being set apart from his siblings and parents. Tibs also has high cheekbones and long eyelashes. All in all, he is a very handsome man, thanks to Aphrodite. This demi-god happens to stand at 6 feet and one and a half inch. He is a healthy weight of 166 pounds even. Ty is very skinny, with a little bit of muscle, but is a very skinny and birdlike boy, with thin bones that look like they could break. His shoulders and slight, but he has excellent posture, thanks to his father being so old fashioned. He doesn’t have really any distinguishing marks except for a couple of moles scattered here and there on his arms. They are dark brown and small, so they could pass for freckles.
Unlike most children of Aphrodite, Tiberius has very pale skin, almost white. His complexion is clear, minus the few moles on his arms mentioned earlier. His head is an almost perfect circle. He has high cheekbones that are very prominent against his skinny face. Tiberius is a very handsome boy, but he doesn’t realize it. Sometimes Tibs will wear glasses to help his crooked eyesight, but it isn’t that bad so sometimes he’ll forget to put them on. His nose is small and somewhat upturned.
Tiberius has big round eyes that are even bigger when he wears glasses. His black lashes are so long that he wonders why they don’t tangle up when he blinks. His eyebrows are the same black as his eyelashes, and they are broad and thick but well groomed. Tiberius’s irises are an ashy grey, but like most children of Aphrodite, his eye irises change from a grey to a muted blue to a olive green, depending on his mood and the people he is around. But because he wants to be set apart from the rest of the Winter family, Ty usually keeps his eyes the grey they were born as. He has long black hair that ends past his earlobe. It is soft and thick and very shaggy, and it often likes to sweep across Ty’s forehead and get into his eyes. Often Tiberius fusses over his hair, and brushes it for a long time in the morning to get it exactly how he wants it, which is usually messy and looks like he just rolled out of bed and called his hairstyle good. Tibs really cares about how his hair looks, it is the only vain part about him.
Tiberius likes to wear black sweaters. He is a very dark clothing type of guy, but he keeps with the style. His closet is full of inky black and stormy grey suits, sweaters, and skinny jeans. If you were to find him in any color, it would probably a navy blue or something dark. He doesn’t like to wear summery type clothing, preferring to wear skinny jeans or slacks with a nice shirt or sweater. Tiberius is very comfortable about what he wears, and he, like so many of his siblings, will throw out an item of clothing when it is out of style.
Personality: “Cold and calculating, like ice.” Bradley has rubbed off on Tiberius quite a bit. He is very soft spoken, thoughtful, and wise all at the same time. Tibs is so unlike his siblings that even though they are nice and open to him, they probably think him a little odd for not obsessing over his looks like they do.
Like stated before, Ty’s good traits include being thoughtful, wise, soft-spoken, and caring. When I say being thoughtful, I mean Tiberius is always careful about what he says, because he doesn’t want to offend people. Because of this, he doesn’t talk a lot to strangers, preferring them to start a conversation. Only with Charlotte was Tiberius not afraid to speak his mind, because his little sister would never hate him for the things he said. But she hasn’t seen him since Ty was kidnapped, so he has reverted back into a creature who says mostly right things. Tiberius is also very wise. Yes, being wise may come to him somewhat naturally, but it is because of his intelligence that credits him into being wise. If you have a problem, you can go to Tibs and ask him what you should do, and he’ll most likely answer with a philosophical quote by homer or something like that. Nine times out of ten, it doesn’t help, or even make sense, but it will come to people eventually. Ty just wants to do good in the world. He is also soft-spoken. If you bully him or call him names, Tibs will just shrug his shoulders and keep walking like nothing happened. But because of this he isn’t vain like his siblings, just very insecure about himself and who he is. Tiberius almost never talks back to authority and does what he is told the first time. Lastly, Tibs is very caring. Like I mentioned before, he doesn’t like to talk to strangers, and the only person he can really be himself around is Charlotte. But without even trying he can charm the pants off of any girl. Ty isn’t looking for romance, because he hasn’t found the right girl yet, but when he does it will be love at first sight and he will care so much about her. He cares about his family, even Victor and Eponine, who annoy him to every extent possible. And someday, when Tiberius makes friends in camp, he will care about them too.
With all good traits must come bad traits. First off, Tiberius is very insecure. And he is clingy and also somewhat detached. Finally, he does not know how to channel his emotions correctly. Ty is insecure about a lot of things, mainly his pale skin. He looks around at the other campers and feels left out because no matter how hard he tries, he can’t tan. Like all Aphrodite children, Tiberius cares about how he looks, but because he isn’t looking into a mirror and acting vain all the time, they tease him. When Tibs feels alone, he’ll wrap his arms around himself and pretend he’s home, because he really does not like it here at camp, he just stays to keep his family safe. He is clingy. Because of his insecurity and his lack of ability to make friends, when Tibs does make a friend, he is likely to stay by there side constantly. He gets this trait from his stepmothers’ side of the family, since Lucy raised him from a young. As much as Tiberius hates to admit it, he is a little like Victor in the sense that you can’t let go of your best friend. Tibs is also detached from the rest of his cabin members, and this only adds to him being insecure. He can’t find common ground with them, as Tiberius would rather be in the library reading The Iliad rather than having a fashion show with the rest of them. Around the Aphrodite campers, Tibs seems very awkward, but shove him in with a crowd of Athena children, and he’ll be smiling within the hour and have ten new friends. This is probably the worst of his traits. Tiberius cannot channel his emotions correctly, and it is his father’s fault. Because Bradley was the only male role model in his life, Ty molded himself to his image. Bradley barely showed Tibs any praise, or any emotion besides cold-heartedness. Now Tiberius is like a corpse, not smiling or showing any emotion because he can’t figure out that it is okay to have feelings.
Fatal Flaw: “I’m caring. Like care-bear caring.” Tiberius Magnus Winters is way to caring for his own good. This will someday kill him as he will gladly jump in front of a bus if it means the person he loves will live.
Talents: “Ugh, my powers SUCK!” 1) Tiberius, much to his dismay, is able to radiate beauty, which helps him not get killed in battle. 2) This demigod, like his half brothers and sisters, can speak French fluently. 3) Love. Without even trying Tibs can make girls fall in love with him as he walks by. He finds this to be very annoying.
Weapons: “Imagine me wielding darth maul’s lightsaber. Replace the blades with scythes.” Tiberius prefers to stay out of battle, but when he fights he uses a short, double sided scythe that transforms into a ring when he is not using it.
Year-Round or Summer: “I wish I could say summer…” Year-Round
Other: Tiberius Magnus Winters is straight. His faceclaim is Ben Barnes, which is shared by kenzie. His color is a weird pink color.

Name: "Nikolai Owen Winchester.” Most people call him Nik, though.
Age/Birthday: "I am fifteen years old." June 21st
Gender: "I could check, if you want." Male
God Parent: "My mum likes to starve people.” Nik’s godly parent Limos, the goddess of starvation and hunger.
Claimed: "Yeah. When I reached camp I just knew who my mom was.” Nikolai has been claimed.
Mortal Family: "I had a step-dad named Harris and an older sister and brother named Sam and Cas.” Harris Clark- Step-dad. Samantha (Sam) Clark- Older step-sister Castiel (Cas) Clark- Older step-brother
Years in Camp: “I’ve been here for two years.” Ever since Nikolai has been out of the hospital, he’s been at camp.
Brief History: “I’m warning you now. This is not a Disney-esque story.” The last thing Harris had expected was Limos leaving him with their one-month-old child, Nikolai. He had already a little girl and a little boy and though he was pretty well off in terms of money, he didn’t know how he was going to support the four of them. After unsuccessfully begging with Limos to stay with him and the kids, the goddess became quite annoyed and angry with Harris. She left, leaving Harris Jackson with three mewling kids to look after.
Harris found a stable job working as a mechanic so he could work during the day when the kids were in school and he could spend time with them at night. Overall they were a close-knit family, and Nik’s life was perfect from age 0 to 4. Sam dressed him up in princess clothes and he didn’t really mind until one day Cas made fun of him for being in a Cinderella dress. That’s when Nik stopped letting Sam dress him up, because he didn’t want to be considered weak by his brother, whom he loved and respected and looked up to.
So things were great until Nik entered kindergarten, where he found it difficult to read and write, because the words went all squiggly and jumbled up and dog changed to bog. He was taken to a Doctor and diagnosed with not only a severe case of ADHD, but also with dyslexia on top. Harris told Nik to try his best, and he’d still be proud of him, no matter the grades he got. So throughout Nik’s life, he got mostly C’s and D’s.
When he entered middle school, the teasing and bullying began, as did the worst years of Nikolai’s life as we know it. See, Nik wasn’t the skinniest kid on the block, nor was he horridly obese either. His peers considered him ‘chubby’; therefore, he was subjected to all kinds of stupid things middle schoolers do just to make fun of people. They wrote ‘fatass’ on Nik’s locker, and threw French fries at him during lunch. Sam would’ve stopped it, if she hadn’t been to busy protecting her reputation as the head cheerleader and major socialite. Cas was already at the high school, so he never knew. Nikolai was alone, or at least, he thought he was, so he never told anyone what was happening. He wanted the bullying to stop.
So one day, Nikolai Owen Winchester stopped eating.
He was going to regulate what he ate after he made a diet for himself to lose weight. Trouble is, he went about three days without eating much. Maybe a lettuce leaf here or there, but nothing good for him. And in those three days, Nik lost a couple of pounds. He liked losing weight, so he continued not to eat. Nik had anorexia nervosa, and while he knew what it was because of health class, he didn’t pay any attention to the telltale signs that he had it. All he knew was that he was losing weight at a rapid pace, and that was good enough for him.
Sam and Cas noticed Nik’s astonishing weight loss, and they kept a close eye on him, Sam at school and Cas at home. They watched as Nik just pulled the slab of meat he was given at dinner apart into tiny pieces. When they told him that he looked thin, Nik shrugged and denied this and merely continued to do what he was doing. Sam and Cas grew increasingly worried about their younger brother, and then they told their father. Harris knew who Limos was, a goddess of hunger and starvation, and so he knew that something like this would happen to Nik, though not so fast and not so young. He tried to stop Nik, telling him that he needed to eat or he’d die. But Nik didn’t listen. He wanted to be in control. He wanted to be thin, no matter the costs.
During American History, a thirteen-year-old Nik collapsed onto the floor, unconscious. His body couldn’t supply itself with nutrition anymore, because it had used up its fat supply and nothing was left. He was carried to the nurse’s office, which called Harris. Harris took Nik to a clinic where these kinds of things were taken care of. After months and months of rehab, Nikolai was able to eat a little bit of food each day, without becoming extremely disgusted with himself. He thought back to the bullies at school, and there was always a scowl on his face, and always a desire to be perfect. When he was let out of the hospital, Cas, Sam, and Harris were all there waiting for him in the same old car they had since forever. They were all proud of Nik and they told him that. Nik smiled, though not entirely happy with his family. He still wasn’t in control. Inside of him there was still the need to be absolutely perfect, and his family stopped him.
But once they got into the car and started to drive away, Harris explained to his youngest son that they couldn’t go home. He was taking Nik to Camp Half Blood, where hopefully the kids there could help him figure out what it was like to be different. When they got to camp, Nik got out of the car and took his suitcases from his brother and sister. He started to walk towards the entrance and gave one last glance at his family. Without a word, Nikolai Owen Winchester walked into camp.
Physical Appearance: “I’m skin and bones.” Nikolai Owen Winchester, like any other Nik, has fantabulous hair. It’s dark brown, almost black, and ends just above his ear. He has bangs, though sometimes he styles them out of his eyes. At one point, when he had anorexia nervosa, his hair was thin and brittle, but now it’s thick and heavy and silky and shiny. He gets it from his dad, who looks exactly like his son.
Continuing on, Nik has ice blue eyes, though he has a rim of dark blue around the edges, and silver flecks dotted here and there. His eyes are really beautiful, as anyone would tell you. They seem happy and wise and cheerful, but inside they hold a dark need to be perfect, and they have seen and done stuff you wouldn’t believe. They’re big and full.
He also has a jaw that could cut glass. Nik, though sad and haunted by what happened during middle school, has found a reason to smile everyday. He’s almost always grinning, because he knows it can get better.
Finally, Nik is about 5’6 but only weighs about 100 pounds as a result of the anorexia nervosa that plagued his body. When he passed out that day in history, he weighed a mere 65, and it was a struggle to get him to even get him to weigh what he does now. You can see his shoulder blades through his tanned skin. When he says he’s skin and bones, Nik isn’t kidding. You can see every single bone in his body. Clothes are baggy on him, even skinny jeans. Nik wears whatever is comfortable to him, he doesn’t really care about what he wears, only what he weighs.
Personality: “Let it go. The past is the past. That’s my motto.” Nikolai has a reason to smile, every hour of everyday. It isn’t because of where he lives or how his family treats him. It’s because he’s a survivor. Nik had therapy at the clinic he was in, and it taught him that life is a gift, and it shouldn’t be wasted. That’s how he thinks now, though sometimes he will slip into the Nik that almost destroyed him, the other Nik.
He wants to help others, because others helped him, and Nik wants the world to be a better place. So if someone came up to him and asked him for advice, Nik would gladly help him or her to the best of his ability.
Nikolai is also very friendly. You have kids that got bullied then become bullies, just to get payback and to feel stronger. Nik is not one of those people, he can assure you. He rarely ever raises his voice against people, and when he does it’s out of love and respect for the person, because he knows that life can be so much better for them and they deserve more. Nikolai is just a kid that everybody wants to be friends with.
But with every good trait, there is also a bad trait. Nikolai Owen Winchester wants to be a perfectionist, and he will stop at nothing to be one. Inside of him is still a desire to be thin, and that will come out sooner or later and when it does, Nik has to be prepared or he won’t survive the oncoming storm.
Nik has sensitivity issues. One should not bring up his weight, not even out of love or concern, because chances are he’ll either explode into a fit of anger and ruin something, or tear up and cry, remembering what others have said to him. He hates being reminded of how he almost died that day in history class.
He also smokes. One day during break, Nik was going crazy because he ate a quarter of a sandwich and he wanted to go to the bathroom and puke to expel the calories. Needless to say the nurses wouldn’t let him. So Nik went outside to clear his head and a guy offered him a cigarette. Nik, with a lack of better judgement, said yes. One drawl of the nicotine and the urge the throw up the food was gone. Ever since Nik has been a smoker.
Fatal Flaw: “I have to be absolutely perfect.” Nikolai’s fatal flaw is that he will stop at nothing to become perfect.
Talents: “I’m nothing short of amazing.” Nik isn’t that amazing, as he has no demigod powers other than fighting and decoding greek.
Weapons: “I don’t care what my weapons are, honestly.” Nikolai Winchester has the standard armor and sword that every demigod has.
Year-Round or Summer: “Year round, like a merry go round.” Nikolai is a year round camper.
Other: FC is Daniel Radcliffe, which is shared with Colleen.

Name: “Sebastian.” Sebastian Fey Williams
Nick-Names: “I got lots.” Bas, Fey, Basil, Seb, Sebby, although he’ll usually go by Fey.
Gender: “Either you’re stupid or you don’t have eyes.” Male
Pets: “I have a wonderful cat named Lego, and you are not allowed to touch him.” Sebastian has a ginger cat which he has named Lego. Lego is very old and cannot come out of Fey’s cabin, so he is rarely seen by anyone but his owner.
Birthday/Age: “Sixteen.” June 8th, 1996
Godly Parent: “The god of dreams.” Sebastian’s father is Morpheus.
Claimed: “I am.” Yes
Years at camp: “Three years.” Sebby has been here since he was thirteen years old.
Mortal Family: “My poor, sick mother.” Julia Williams- Mother (Deceased)
Brief History: “Let’s just get this over with, then.” Sebastian Fey Williams was born during a thunderstorm in a hospital. Not a normal birth certainly, and certainly not a normal boy in the slightest. Julia knew about Morpheus, as she did some poking around when she was with him. So of course she knew that her son wasn’t going to ever fit in with the ‘in’ crowd. As a manager of a string of hotels, Julia was quite well off, and she had more enough to take care of her young offspring. Both mother and son lived up in a penthouse on the upper side of Florida right by a beach, hence Fey’s immense love for water. Sebby grew up with a somewhat normal childhood, as he wasn’t surrounded by children. Julia tried harnessing her child’s god-given power, but it wasn’t showing yet. She began to think that her son wasn’t anything special, but she still saw Seb as the light of her life nonetheless.
When Bas entered school, he was an immediate hit among the children. The child was intelligent, friendly (despite barely having contact with kids his own age), and very very handsome. He could stun every girl in the hallway, making them swoon with the desire to date Sebastian Williams. Of course, this was kindergarten, any romantic relationships lasted about as long as recess did. Although Basil did like this one girl, Suzette, for a while, but his feelings were not returned, so the passionate flame was put out quickly. School for Fey was good, even though reading and writing was hard for the young boy. However, none of his friends cared about reading or writing, thinking it to be for sissy’s and old people, and so Fey didn’t care either, so he never pursued the wonders of storytelling. Sebby could also never sit still for a long period of time, which caused circle time to be quite disastrous for him, and the trouble he got into ended up in Seb being put into time out, which he did not like, so he developed hatred toward the teachers at his school. Back at home, things were even worse, as Julia Williams had developed a severe tumour in her brain, and was doomed to die in 6 months. Fey, being a good son, took it upon himself to look after his mother in her last weeks on earth. He skipped school with good intentions, despite Julia’s pleads to please go. So mother and son stayed home together and bonded day and night, and slowly Fey lost his popularity points he had gained in the previous years of his life. He spent more and more time at the beach as his mother deteriorated, and soon it was up to Sebby to do everything for his mom; cook, clean, do the laundry. He grew up too fast. One day, Fey went to wake his mother up in the morning, and he had breakfast made for her and everything. But Julia wouldn’t wake up, although she did have a pulse. Bas called the hospital and men and white carried Julia away, with Bas riding in the ambulance almost crying. At the hospital, they tried to revive Julia and wake her up, but nothing worked. Eventually Seb’s mother died, and at just ten years old, the boy was distraught, with no family to call his own.
With Julia gone and Morpheus unknowing he had a son, Sebastian was put into a foster care system, where finally his powers came alive. As soon as he hit puberty, Fey found out he could enter people’s dreams, and manipulate them into nightmares or pleasant thought. Because he wasn’t a mean boy, the demigod didn’t use this power for vengeance. Also, it helped that he didn’t talk to anybody at the home. After Julia died, Fey thought it was his fault, and so in order to prevent his heart from being shattered again, Sebastian refused to make friends with adults and kids alike. He had a pet cat, Lego, and that was all he needed. Really he built walls around his heart and to this day no one has succeeded in toppling those down and opening him up. Sebby didn’t talk about Julia since she died, and so he was a bit of a mystery to all those children at the foster home. Eleven year old Sebastian Williams became a jealous little boy as well, because no one wanted to adopt him, and every other child got adopted, even mean old Callie Sampson, who used to pull Bas’ hair and call him names. Parents were just too afraid to adopt Fey because of the powers he possessed, and they were getting stronger with every month that passed. Soon, Fey could put others to sleep temporarily, and it made him really sleepy as well. He stayed in the foster home for two years, scared and alone, because he didn’t know who was - or what - when on his 13th birthday, a satyer (who was under the alias of Frank, and was the closest thing to a friend that Sebastian had. He also knew that monsters were really close to where they were.) proposed running away. Fey took the offer up right away, and they escaped the foster home. Frank knew the way to camp, and so he took Sebastian there.
Once at camp, Sebastian stayed at the Hermes cabin for a while, because Morpheus still had no clue that he had a son, and so Fey still didn’t actually have a father. It took him a while to get used to the whole idea of ‘gods and goddess are actually real and half of your life is a lie’, and so he was very reluctant to open up to really anybody. It wasn’t until a year after that he arrived that Morpheus claimed him and Fey moved Hera’s cabin that he actually believed. He started training with his bow and arrows, and now is a highly experienced marksmen. The demigod has stayed at camp for three years, as he has no where else to go. He still has no friends though, but that is unsurprising. Bas enjoys staying in his cabin with Lego, who is very old and will probably die soon. People rarely see him outside, and even less have heard his name used around. Basically, Sebastian Fey Williams is an antisocial hermit.
Physical Appearance: “Mom always said I had a dreamy look on my face.” Sebastian has always had a pretty boy face, even after he hit puberty. He’s never really had a harsh looking body. His bones are a delicate frame, with papery coloured skin that was once sun kissed, but months indoors have allowed it to lose its lustre and shine. Fey is extremely skinny, because of both genetics and just having odd eating habits, as he usually eats breakfast around noon, lunch at four, dinner at six, and snacks at midnight and two, or he’ll forget to eat at all. Fey has dimples when he smiles, which only adds to his ‘oh look i’m five years old’ look. Bas has thick dark brown hair, which he usually styles in a part and will sometimes wear beanies. His eyes are like sugared violets, and they big and beautiful. They give off a boyish charm and a girly aura, and sometimes Fey will use this to his advantage. His lips are made of a cupid’s bow and are pink and lush. You could mistake him for a child of Aphrodite, if not for the complete disregard for his appearance.
Personality: “Trust me, it won’t matter. I won’t talk to you.” If Sebastian was an animal, he’d be a crab. (No, not Sebastian the crab from The Little mermaid.) Let me explain; On the outside, Fey is very rugged and hard to like, much like the shell of the crustacean. On the inside, however, is sweetness by the bucketload. It takes a determined person to crack open Fey’s outer shell and get to the delightful surprises inside.
Bas seems to be mean and serious, years of wear and tear on his mind and soul. Despite his appearance and somewhat impish features, Basil rarely smiles. He’ll find things funny, and he’ll like people, but he won’t smile because smiling would give away that he finds said thing amusing, which would lead for attachments, which he doesn’t do. He very much is the type of person to smile and laugh behind closed doors with only himself as company. Fey is extremely closed off, staying inside and locked up. Despite being mean and awkward, the demigod is actually pretty intelligent. He hasn’t got the highest IQ in camp, of course, but that’s because he isn’t a child of Athena. Basil would be considerably more smart, if it weren’t for the fact he stopped caring about school when Julia got sick and died. He’s never picked up a hunger for learning ever since. He’s also extremely determined, selfish, and independent. Sebby hates to share anything that is his own. Part of it comes from being an only child, but another contributing factor is that he doesn’t want to lose anything. Seb will do everything for himself and never ever, under any circumstances, ask for help, even at the cost of his own life. Part of this is also determination, as he doesn’t stop until he’s satisfied with the work he had done, even if it is half-assed.
Underneath that all, however, is a sweet boy that longs for companionship and love. Fey would never admit it, but he really does have a big heart, and anyone who looks in his big blue eyes could see it. The boy can act, and he can manipulate your dreams, but he can’t stay away from the people he would like to form an attachment with. Fey, once he has latched onto you, is extremely overprotective, though not without concern. He just doesn’t want to lose another person in his life that he cares about. Sebastian claims he doesn’t want love and attention, but in all actuality he does, and when he receives it he’s the happiest boy on earth, all smiles and laugh and love.
Fatal Flaw: “I don’t necessarily talk to people.” Fey has trust issues, and he builds walls around himself that are virtually impossible to break down. Because of this, he’ll do everything himself and almost rarely ask for help, because that means letting his guard down and he can’t afford to do that. Seb just doesn’t want to get hurt again, and he dreads a repeat of what happened with his mother.
Talents: “I mean, cool powers, right?” This demigod can put people to sleep temporarily by touching their foreheads. Fey can only do this twice a day, and it makes him very drowsy and drained afterwords. The victim sleeps for about an hour and a half before waking up.
Sebastian has the power to go inside people’s dreams and manipulate them. However, this drains him considerably, and he’s only able to do it about 5 times a month.
Weapons: “It’s like I always say; stay home and stay out of what isn’t yours.” Fey tends to stay out of battle, even though he’s amazing at shooting a bow and arrow. He just doesn’t want to kill people, and so he’ll just stay out of the limelight. If you do manage to get the stubborn ass boy to fight, he’ll use his boy and arrows, which are tipped with a sleeping potion made by the Hecate kids that will knock an enemy out for a couple of hours. Sebby does this all from a safe distance, usually from a tree branch or concealed.
Year-Round or Summer: “And you care why, exactly?” Year round
Other: Sebastian’s face claim is Chace Crawford. Fey is straight (I think. Let’s just develop his character a bit. We don’t want a repeat of Winter, do we?). His colour is a light blue.

Name: "Casimir James" Casimir James Young
Nick-Names: "Most people call me Cas" Cas or sometimes James depending on the person.
Gender: "A boy" Male
Pets: "Pets would just ignore me like everyone else." Cas doesn't have any pets
Birthday/Age: "I'm 16" He was born on August 24th
Godly Parent: "Krios is my father" Krios - Titan of Stars and Constellations and Lord of the South
Claimed: "Yeah" Yes.
Years at camp: "I don't really keep track?" Three and counting
Mortal Family: "I have none, shut up." Anna Young (mother) Michael Young (older brother) Hael Young (older sister) Ezra Young (twin brother) Tessa Young (younger sister) Zachariah Young (younger brother)
Brief History: "Oh, so now people are taking an interest in me? Joy." Casimir James Young was to born to Anna Young on a hot August summer afternoon, his twin, Ezra Newt Young, arrived shortly after he did. As the 3rd oldest of five children, Cas and Ezra were, quite literally, the middle children. It didn’t matter for about three years, because they was still the youngest then. As a kid, Cas was relatively happy, his family wasn’t exactly rich, because their father had walked out them before Casimir was born. That was fine though, because he had Ezra. The older kids, Hael and Michael, had the same father and were very close to one another. However, Cas’ father, Krios (who at the time of the one night stand with his mother, was under the alias of James Wesson), had disappeared the morning after he and Anna had gotten together, not even bothering to stop to make the woman breakfast. At the time, Casimir hated Krios for not taking better care of his mom, because he thought she deserved the best. Anna was a good mom to Cas and Ezra until Tessa and Zach were born, at which time she barely glanced at the middle child. Now his name was fitting, as it meant ‘Destroyer of Peace’, and that was what Casimir thought he was doing, destroying the peace between his entire family. Once he had been close to his twin, but with everyone around him ignoring him, Cas thought that Ezra would just use him like the younger children did, so he grew apart from him, becoming his own person entirely.
When he reached age six, Cas stopped laughing and smiling as much as he did, and at school was very quiet and shy, and the kids thought he was weird for doing that. Everyone in his class avoided him, and at recess threw mud balls at the child, calling him names like ‘freak’ and weirdo’. It was only worse at home, and needless to say Cas didn’t expect to find any solace within the walls of the tiny, crappy shed he called a home since the day he was born. He knew that Ezra wanted to grow close to him again, and he also knew that he was the more upbeat of the twins. Sometimes Cas hated that, that Ezra could just pretend everything was fine and good and everything was right in the world. Hael and Michael looked upon him with contempt and often sneered at their younger brother, pushing him into door frames when the little boy wanted help with a small math problem, wanted to play, or merely wished to use the bathroom. Often Michael would hit Casimir, and Hael would just stand there, laughing. Anna wasn’t home a lot, seeing as she had to provide for six other kids, but when she was she barely acknowledged Cas’ existence and dismissed the bruises and cuts and scrapes. The younger children followed their older brother and sister’s footsteps, and home-life became a living hell for Casimir Young.
When the young demigod turned thirteen, he became more and more depressed. No one paid attention to him anymore at home, and at school he only had one friend named Sophia, who was a cripple. She was the light of his life, and Cas started to grow feelings towards her. Casimir stopped hiding the bruises that his brother still bestowed upon him, and with Zach turning into quite the brute his brother ways, the injuries had multiplied. Most of the teachers were worried about him and often asked him questions, but Cas didn’t want to trouble them. Besides, if they got his mother involved, she’d deny everything. No one cared about Cas, and Cas didn’t care about himself. He never thought to notice, however, that his twin brother was out there protecting him. While Casimir would stay inside all day and sulk, Ezra would probably be outside training like he always had. The twins were different, yes, but both had mostly the same core values. But, just after a month of Casimir forgetting to take care of himself, monsters attacked him, finally catching his scent after thirteen years, a very late start for a demigod of his lineage.
The monster attack happened while Casimir and Sophia were walking home one day from school. For what seemed like the first time in forever, Cas seemed extremely happy. He was planning on asking her to the annual middle school dance. Sure, he was nervous, but he didn’t think she’d reject him. With books clutched to his thin chest nervously, Casimir had started to ask Sophia, but before he could, a dracaena jumped out of the bushes and started to attack the pair of children. Casimir had no previous fighting experience, but he’d been beaten up enough by Zach and Michael to know how to defend himself against a human, though he never did it to his brothers. And really, was a half-dragon lady so different? Cas tried his best, and managed to scare off the monster, but at a terrible cost. Sophia, the girl in the wheelchair whom he’d fallen head over heels for, had been hit and was now sprawled out on the ground with a massive head wound. Casimir didn’t bother calling an ambulance, he knew his friend wasn’t going to make it. He held her as she died, feeling guilty he didn’t do more. As he was doing that, Ezra had tracked down and killed the dracaena, and Cas couldn’t have been more grateful. When Sophia had departed from this world, Cas decided that there was nothing left for him here, and left his hometown of Denver Colorado for a new start. Ezra came with him, naturally, as all good protective twins do. Their journey would eventually land them at Camp.
Now Cas doesn’t hate Krios anymore, he loves his father and does anything to gain his approval, including fighting for the Titans side if need be. At camp Cas discovered he had powers, and a natural talent for blasting things far away, and surprisingly, kicking butts and taking names. He was claimed a couple weeks after he came, when Casimir was watching the constellations as he had done for so long on the roof of his wintery home, Ezra by his side, trying to reinstitute the bond they had when they were very young.
Physical Appearance: "Quote" Both Casimir and Ezra look a lot a like, with only small and subtle differences to tell them apart. Cas has dark brown hair, that, depending on the humidity, can either be straight or somewhat wavy. Sometimes he’ll take care of it, actually brush it out and make it look presentable. Other times, however, he’ll just leave his hair in his natural bedhead state because he isn’t trying to prove anything or impress anybody. Casimir defiantly has darker hair than Ezra, and it is more wavy than his twins. Cas is also more pale than his brother. With no friends and nothing to do, the demigod stayed inside during the daytime, despite the amount of sun rays he needed, preferring to sneak out onto his roof at night and gaze at the stars. His light dusting of almost translucent freckles stand out in the sunlight, looking like stars on his face. Both boys have blue eyes, although Cas’ are brighter like a brilliant planet made of sapphires and diamonds. Ezra has a more full structure, leaving Cas to be the weak twin with a delicate bone structure. In fact, one time when they were little, Casimir tripped and dislocated his shoulder on the cement. Because of the bruises and scars that Michael gave him, Casimir’s skin also has a lot of discoloured blemishes on it, and he has long since stopped trying to hide them.
Personality: "Quote" Out of the brothers, Casimir is defiantly the more sadistic and depressed twin. He’s very much like Krios, despite never actually having met him. Cas is constantly gloomy due to years of being neglected and abused by his older brother. You’ll rarely find a happy thought inside him, and the only time you would’ve is with Sophia, and now even her memory taunts him. He doesn’t smile, not finding a reason too. Also, Casimir is rather thoughtful. This doesn’t mean he’s wise, because he’s not. He just thinks before he acts and tries to figure out the best solution to a problem he’s facing, although he’s not very helpful. Cas would rather help himself and Ezra before anybody else in the world, and he’s even reluctant to help his twin. Continuing on, Cas is silent, preferring not to speak if not needed. He’d rather use actions than speak out, because, after all, actions speak louder than words. It’s a good thing is face is rather expressive. This son of Krios is also much more uncommunicative than his brother is. While Ezra was out making friends and becoming popular, Cas thought about how much better off everyone would be if he didn’t get in their way. This is one of the reasons why he’s very sadistic and likely to team up with kronos in an event such as a big war. Finally, Casimir Young feels extremely over-shadowed by everyone, including Ezra. He feels as if when he finally finds a talent with sharing and that he’s proud of, somebody can already do it better than he can, and Cas hates that feeling.
Fatal Flaw: "Quote" Casimir is too independent. He believes that asking for help is a sign of weakness, and will not, under any circumstances, ask for help. Cas won't even go to Ezra.
Talents: "You'd be surprised."
Constellations Krios is able to make new constellations up in the sky. Casimir is able to do that on a much smaller scale. He can't change the night sky, but he can make constellations appear on a wall or another object like a projection. The bigger the sky Cas makes, the more it drains out of him. He can also make the stars as bright as an LED light, which has been known to blind some campers.
Prowess in Battle When Casimir came to camp, he found out he had a knack for martial arts and other fighting techniques. Needless to say, this is one demigod you do not want to piss off.
Titanic Energy Cas, like Krios, has titanic energy. Unlike his dad, however, he can't push everything he wants. The demigod can force something the size of a car about 50 feet, and that makes him faint with over exertion. The smaller the object, the farther it can go and the less it drains him physically and mentally.
Weapons: "It's nothing special..." Cas has in his possession small daggers which he throws at enemies. When he runs out of these he will do hand to hand combat with his foe.
Year-Round or Summer: "Year-Round" Year-Round
Other: Information Casimir's fc is Freddie Highmore. Ezra is played by Lord Blazy.

Name: “Archer" Archer Daniel Thrush
Gender: "A boy.” Male
Birthday/Age: "I'm 18" Archer was born on the 17th of March
Godly Parent: “I’m a legacy.” Archer is a legacy of Apollo and Athena.
Claimed: "Yes" Archer is claimed
Years at camp: “I’ve spent two years in this hell hole.” Two, apparently.
Mortal Family: “I have a twin brother.” Landon Thrush (twin brother) Mallory Thrush (sister) Spencer Thrush (father - son of Apollo) Olivia Thrush (mother - daughter of Athena)
Brief History: “I lived life on the edge - still do.“ Archer Daniel Thrush was born to Olivia and Spencer Thrush on a cloudy day, his twin brother, Landon, came with him, and they made two out of three children. As Olivia and Spencer had survived their young years as demigods, they had been allowed by some miracle, to live normal lives. Archer and Landon were happy little boys, getting everything they had ever wanted on a whim. The Thrush’s were happy and well off, being of the upper middle class section of the economy. This was all thanks to Olivia and Spencer, who were crazy ass scientists and always found ways to rack in quite a bit of money and then some. A couple of years later and Archer had a baby sister named Mallory. The three children all got along well, they barely fought, and for a long time things were good.
School, although it was hard for Archer because of his major ADHD and minor dyslexia, was always the highlight of his day. He was extremely popular, being able to make friends wherever he went at all hours of the day. As a boy with hardly any enemies, school was a very joyous time for him. He was very talented in sports, being on the junior varsity team for football in his freshmen year, and getting a solo in his chorus group. Back at home, Archer helped around the house, doing whatever he could to make everyone else in his family happy as he was, because family was really all that mattered. Landon was his utmost best friend, the person he could go to in his time of need and Archer did everything with him. Needless to say the twins were extremely close.
One day, however, Archer and Landon were walking home from school as they had always done. It had been a regular day, another perfect one in the numbered infinities. They were almost home - Archer was closer to the driveway than Landon was, because at that time he was the more energetic of the two, so he ran ahead, eager to go home and help his mom and dad. But right at that moment, the house exploded. Spencer and Olivia’s experiment had gone wrong, and this time with deadly consequences. Mallory was killed as well, arriving home from school earlier than the twins. Archer and Landon were merely injured and not killed on impact.
There was a ringing in his ears, and then everything went silent. Yes, the explosion of there house had rendered Archer deaf, well almost. The demigod could still hear screams if they reached a certain volume and his own heartbeat, plus his brothers if he listened closely. Archer didn’t remember getting to camp, he just knew that he was deaf and that Landon had to take care of him now. They’d been at camp ever since the explosion, and there they will remain until they are old enough to fend for themselves. Archer now suffers from terrible nightmares about that day when he lost everything, and he’ll wake up in the middle of the night screaming for his mother, or forgetting why he had gone deaf.
Physical Appearance: "Eh." Archer is quite a handsome man, standing a little taller than six feet and having somewhat of a muscular build. He’s not scrawny, but he isn’t the kind of person to win any sort of bodybuilding competitions. He has brown hair, honey coloured or a darker brown and layered. Archer’s hair isn’t soft and silky, more like steel wool in the fact that it’s scratchy and poky, and it’s like this because of genetics. The demigod has blue eyes, taking more after Apollo than Athena in that respect. Landon, however, has grey eyes, taking after the goddess. His eyes hold sadness and hurt and longing, they’re never happy or bright with mirth. Archer is legally deaf, and he hasn’t got hearing aids yet, so he relies on Landon and sign lanuage to help him understand what’s going on around him. The most he can hear his his own heartbeat, and in some rare instances, extremely loud screams. As for clothes, Archer’s style could be considered hipseter chic.
Personality: “I’m deaf and lazy.” Before the explosion, Archer was the happiest boy you could imagine. He always smiled and did whatever was asked of him. He had friends that he did everything with, and he and his brother were extremely close. Archer was a hard worker, and this was evident by his grades in school and his participation in his extracurricular activities. There was nothing that he couldn’t do that he didn’t set his mind to. If you dared the demigod to do something, by George he would do it without hesitation.
However, after his house blew up and he lost his parents and his sister, Archer has retreated back inside himself. This isn’t only because of his loss of hearing, although that’s a big part of it. Because he’s legally deaf, there really isn’t anything that Archer has to look foreword to now, as he can’t hear people or birds or the wind rushing through the trees, and nobody has really attempted to learn sign language as a way to communicate with him. Also, with the loss of mostly his entire family, Archer has seen no real reason to smile anymore, and all he does all day is hang around Landon like a lost puppy.
Archer has lost his will to even try to do anything worthwhile anymore. If he did, it would concern his dead family members, and he dwells too much on the past to move on. He’s grown lazier ever since the explosion, and if he does do something productive, it usually involves building model neighbourhoods like his own and trying to recreate scenes on how he could have saved his family. Really, after the explosion Archer doesn’t have the will to live, and even Landon can’t help.
Fatal Flaw: “My brother, Landon.” Because Archer is legally deaf, he relies on Landon to be his ears. If something were to ever happen to his twin brother, Archer would be distraught, probably wither away, and die. His codependency on his brother is his fatal flaw.
Talents: “It’s ironic what I can do…” Vitakinesis - Archer, very ironically has the power to heal injuries. However, he cannot heal anything above the severity of a broken arm, and he can only do it up to seven times a day before completely wearing himself out. Also, if something is truly gone (like his hearing, for example) Archer cannot restore it. Truth - Archer can’t tell a lie even if he wanted to. Archery - This demigod takes after his grandfather as he never misses a target with any sort of bow and arrows. However, he’s complete rubbish with any other type of weapon.
Weapons: "It's nothing special..." Archer, unsurprisingly and unoriginally, owns a set of bow and arrows. The bow itself is light and compact, and he can fold it so it can fit inside his pocket. He always has one or two arrows with him at all times.
Year-Round or Summer: “Year-Round"
Other: Archer’s faceclaim is Grant Gustin, which is shared with may. Also, may made Archer's twin, Landon.

Name: “Simon Benjamin Crane.”
Gender: "A boy.” Male
Birthday/Age: “I’m sixteen years young.” Simon was born on April 28th, 1902, and is technically more than 100 years old, but who’s counting?
Godly Parent: “My mom is wisdom.” Athena
Claimed: "Yes" Simon is claimed
Years at camp: “Tessa and I have been under almost a year.” 11-12 months.
Mortal Family: “I have a father— dead, obviously. And a sister who is alive.” Benjamin Crane - father (deceased) Simon’s relationship with his father was quite good. Benjamin knew who Simon’s mother was and told his son from an early age, which formed a bond between the two family members. If his father were alive today, Simon would be the happiest boy in the world, but he’s not haunted by his father’s death as it was natural and peaceful (or so he was told).
Tessa Hibbins - half sister Tessa is Simon’s half sister, they’re only connected by their father. His sister has a different name because of her ancestry, their father wanted them to embrace their heritage even if one of them came from witchcraft. Simon’s relationship with Tessa was, in a word, strained. They could look at each other without spitting on each other’s boots, but they weren’t at well enough terms to talk to each other on a daily basis without someone getting hurt.
Brief History: “I tried to do my duty for Queen and country. Someone stopped me.“ Simon Benjamin Crane was placed on his father’s doorstep at 4:23 am in the chilly spring air of April the 28th. The year was 1902, and everything seemed right in the world. The baby boy, after being set down by the goddess Athena and left their for his father to discover, promptly wailed. This showed already that the child had a strong pair of lung. It had been about half an hour before someone of the household found him, it was his father. At this time, the man already had another child from a previous affair, but wouldn’t deny a little baby boy in his household. He took the child inside and named him Simon.
As time went on, Simon soon learned about who he was and what he was doing here. He was a demigod, part god part human, and it was his job to protect the meek and feeble mortals outside of their walls. Benjamin wished his son to become a hero, one that he could be proud of as he lay dying on his bedside, knowing he had done well. And Simon only aimed to please his father, so the strapping young lad poured his heart and soul into obedience, morphing from child to solider in a matter of years. These were important times for Simon, times that would stick with him even when all of his values had been lost to dust and age and time.
His half-sister, however, was another story entirely. At first, Simon tried to be nice to Tessa, he tried picking her flowers and letting her play with his toys but she didn’t seem interested. In fact, it seemed like she found him annoying. When Simon had figured out that realization, his heart shattered. She was his sister, they were supposed to have a strong bond so that they could overcome anything they set their mind too. Obviously not all love came back in a small package wrapped with a bow. But it didn’t matter anyways, Simon soon found some things to loathe about Tessa.
Before the war started, the Crane/Hibbins were happy enough. Benjamin wasn’t the richest man in the world, but they were well off in a small house by the beach. Often times Simon would go down by the sea and skip rocks, trying to get a new record every time and mostly succeeding. The boys that the demigod met were nice enough, and they obviously came from good households so Simon played with them. They were in no means attached to one another, so Simon could be considered a lonely boy, but he wasn’t really. He wasn’t smothered with love nor hate, only slightly wrapped in both at the same time. By the time 1914 rolled around, Simon was 16 and decided he needed to do something with his life.
Lucky for him, war broke out all across Europe. The Serbians had assassinated Arch Duke Frans Ferdinand of the Austria-Hungaries, which understandably didn’t like that very well and demanded war. England sided with the Serbians, and Simon sided with Queen and country. One day he packed up some clothes and little bits of food, meaning to go out and set foot in the great wide city of London so he could get signed up for the army. Simon’s face was boyish — he still looked about twelve even if he had mostly finished puberty at this point, but it didn’t matter because he had faked his birth certificate to make him as old as Tessa.
It felt good, going off to war. Of course at this point, Simon had never so much as seem a wounded solider; he didn’t know what actual war was. Bloody, horrible, and hell wrapped in a bomb that exploded you to chopped bits of guts and skin and bones. You were lucky if they shipped a dismembered finger home to your family. But Simon didn’t know the truth of what he was going to do. However, Tessa did. Tessa cared for her brother even if she didn’t voice it, and the half-sister was determined to keep Simon out of harms way.
Naturally, the only thing to do was to take the both of them to the lotus casino all the way across the ocean. Benjamin knew this, and although he was sad to see both his children go, he let them. Later on in the the great war, Benjamin Crane would be drafted, being only 37 years old, he would also survive but be blinded for the rest of his days. It was a cruel trick, taking a young boy away from war and putting his wizened old man out there instead.
Understandably for a couple days Simon was upset with Tessa. She had ruined his chance to be a leader and a hero, she’d spoiled his only ambition in life for no reason. He wouldn’t talk to her even when they got settled in the casino, and it felt like a month until he finally found it in his heart to forgive her. Still, Simon wanted to go out and see the world, so he and Tessa fled the casino after 8 weeks in there.
They found themselves in modern day vegas, with fancy new cars and girls that wore pants instead of dresses. Simon thought it was scandalous, and he was also afraid. But a solider never showed fear until he was facing death, and even then he considered it cowardly to do so. He couldn’t tell what Tessa felt about all this, and he didn’t really care. All Simon wanted to do was figure out where the hell they could go after about 100 years of being nonexistent. His prayers were answered when a satyr came up to the both of them and took them to camp half blood, where they’ve resided since then, and since then Simon had learned the fate of his father.
Physical Appearance: “Blonde hair, grey eyes.” In a battle of genes against mother and father, it seemed as though mother won because Simon looks like a typical Athena child. His hair is set in blonde waves, and when the sun strikes his head the right way it looks like he’s an angel born of golden fire, halo shining brightly above him in heavenly might. Simon’s hair is pretty easily managed and he doesn’t fuss over it. As a kid he’d wanted to get a buzz cut to be more like the soldiers he saw, but Benjamin wouldn’t let him. As a sign of respect towards his father, Simon had decided to not cut his hair even in the modern times. His eyes are stormy grey clouds brushed over a sea, waiting to wreck havoc on the waves below. His irises are living, breathing, and oh so accurate like a hawk.
If you were to put Tessa and Simon side by side to compare them, you’d find many differences and many similarities. Both children have blonde hair, although Tessa’s is a few shades lighter. Simon also has a more impish face, giving you the impression that he’d light your shoes on fire just for fun, while Tessa is more of a vixen, sly and slender and manipulative. Of course, how they look does not define what they would do to the general public. In a startling turn of events, Simon is taller than Tessa. He stands at 5’ 10’’, while his older sister stands at 5’ 8’’. Although these siblings look alike, you couldn’t ever mistake one for the other.
Personality: “I’m quite nationalistic.” If you were to take a five second glance at Simon Crane, looked away, and then asked to describe in in five words or less, most people would say ‘English Steve Rogers.’ Yes, thanks to Benjamin’s teaching of pride and nationalism and how great war is, Simon now is basically like the fictional comic book hero. Since the moment he was born, this demigod had hero written all over him. It was scrawled into his bones and smashed in to his skin. There wasn’t anything else this boy was destined to be except a hero. He’s a natural born leader, and oh so admirable. Almost everybody he has met thinks he is the most brave soul they’ve ever encountered. Simon is amicable enough, although he’s not like Tessa at any rate. He’ll have a few friends but then shut himself off. He knows that most of his friends would die anyways, so might as well spare the heartache.
Simon stands up for what’s right and always tries to do the right thing. This doesn’t always work out, as the boy does before he thinks and rarely ever pauses to weigh the pros and cons. So Simon is also very rash in the sense that he’ll get people killed, but not on purpose. This boy has a duty, to get as many people to safety as possible even at the cost of his own. He’s not reckless, so to speak, but Simon wouldn’t say no to jumping off a cliff into shark infested waters to save a couple of people. This demigod can also be very bland, and it isn’t because he came from a different time period where their idea of fun was going to church.
One of the most odd things about Simon Crane is the fact that he doesn’t believe in witchcraft. It’s strange, when he lives with a witch, but he figures that Tessa is just really good a cheap card tricks, chemistry, and physics. He’s a man of science, not easily swayed by blue sparks flitting from the hand.
Fatal Flaw: “My stubbornness I think.” Simon is very stubborn and not inclined to believe or do anything you want or say if he doesn’t believe it will help the general public.
Talents: “I am super smart, but it doesn’t amount to much.” Although being super smart is a plus, he doesn’t really have extra demigod powers.
Weapons: “Poison darts.” An odd choice of weapon for a demigod who likes close hand-to-hand combat, but Simon can still get in close and stab a person with these so they work. If he runs out of those, he has greek fire bombs which work magnificently if you’re trying to blow up an army of monsters.
Year-Round or Summer: “Year-Round"
Other: Simon’s face claim is Thomas Brodie-Sangster, which is shared with may (i think). Tessa is played by bren.
