SKYLER CARSTAIRS
❝arrogant boy, love yourself so no one has to❞

Name:  Skyler Alexander Carstairs
 Nicknames: none
 Age: sixteen
 Date of Birth: December 3rd, 1999
 Gender: Male
 Godly Parent: Nike, the goddess of victory
 Claimed: Yes
 Years at Camp: three years

 Mortal Family:
• Daniel Carstairs // father
• Eleanor Carstairs nee Windsor // step-mother
• Isabelle Carstairs // step-sister, seventeen, daughter of Eleos
• Blythe Carstairs // half-sister, fourteen
• Jeremiah Carstairs // half-brother, twelve
• Alex Carstairs // half-brother, seven

 Hometown: London, England; then New York City
 Brief History: Skyler was born in London where his father met his step mother Eleanor and her young daughter, Isabelle. They lived in London until the birth of Eleanor's 4th child (Alex). The family was broke and had nowhere to go. Shortly after Skyler's 8th birthday, they headed to New York City. There, the children were raised in the projects. Skyler knows he has 4 siblings but, being the second oldest, couldn’t be bothered to remember most of their names. From a young age, the boy lived in his own world. This quickly got him in trouble with his teachers and his classmates. Skyler’s brash mouth made him an easy target for the other students, until they learned that he bit back. As soon as Skyler turned 12, his parents started to lose money quickly. They could barely afford to eat. Because his father was too proud to ask for welfare, Skyler’s family turned to the harsh truth. Skyler was not one of them. They could not afford to have him there, and he must go. Skyler's father knew that Skyler could not stay much longer in the mortal world because he was a half blood (Daniel had gained this information because he could see through the mist and had befriended a saytr before Skyler was born). His family dropped Skyler and his few possessions off at Camp Half Blood. Because this experience was so traumatic for Skyler, he’s completely erased the memory from his brain. To this day, he believes that his father died when he was 12 and he came to live here. No one else knows that this is not actually the case.

 Eye Color: Blue
 Hair Color: Brown
 Height: 5’9”
 General Appearance: Skyler’s light brown hair that some people consider blond falls straight across his face. By some people’s standards his hair is unkempt and too long (of course it is both), but Skyler doesn’t care. Skyler has bright blue eyes, which he is incredibly proud of. Although a lot of times he could pass off for a son of Athena, Skyler’s blue eyes set him apart from the people he spends his time with. Skyler has a long and lanky build, making him tall but also skinny. The boy does not eat much for someone who is always growing and therefore is slightly underweight. Some people might think he starves himself, but truth be told, Skyler just is never that hungry. He came from a family where they barely had enough food to eat, and therefore Skyler is not used to eating much. Skyler is very awkward because of his odd build and often trips over things. Skyler has naturally pale skin that does not tan. Instead he burns, and it is not a strange sight to see Skyler’s skin bright red as he spends so much time in the sun. Because Skyler has been training for several years, his muscles are fairly defined. However, this strength does allow for the boy to become overconfident in his abilities. Skyler has terrible eyesight and glasses that are just barely visible frame his face. Skyler is handsome enough and he knows it. However, he knows when to play people through his looks and when not too.
 Face Claim: Callan McAuliffe

 Personality: Cocky and often overconfident, Skyler is someone who has trouble making friends. He doesn’t particularly mind though, because he likes being alone. Skyler is bad at approaching people and often is marked off as a bully (which he can sometimes be). While not cruel, Skyler is pugnacious and loves to argue with people, especially since he knows (or thinks!) he will win. Because of his cockiness Skyler can often rush himself into dangerous situations. While not outright mean, Skyler is very impulsive and says exactly what he thinks of someone, no matter how harsh it might be. Brutally honest, Skyler often doesn't realize he's hurting anyone. Skyler is fairly intellectual and enjoys learning, although he needs to learn it his way. Skyler often get wound up in his own head, making him a very difficult person to interact with. He does not like to be around people often and feels little empathy. He shows either very little emotion or he loses it and becomes extremely angry - two very polarizing . However, Skyler has learned to control his emotions fairly well. Skyler feels very alienated a lot of the time, partly because he thinks of himself as better than everyone else, and partly because he has such a hard time relating to others. Skyler has been diagnosed with ASD due to his social troubles, but his confidence rose dramatically over the years to a point where it's difficult to notice from the surface. Within, Skyler has a lot of ticks, and often cannot or doesn't bother making conversation with people.
 Fatal Flaw: Skyler is totally self reliant, rendering him useless in games like capture the flag because he has such a hard time taking orders or listening to other people’s opinions. Skyler plays by his own rules and his own rules only.

 Pets: Skyler hates animals.
 Talents: Skyler is strong and he's fairly smart, although his cheek comments and know-all attitude often mask whatever he does not know. Skyler is also lucky. He is more likely to win when the chances are 50/50 (because his mother is the goddess of victory).
 Weapons: Skyler’s celestial bronze blade has his mother’s name carved into it. It is a fairly short blade, measuring only a foot and a half in length, and Skyler carries it with him at all times.
 Year Round or Summer Camper?: Year Round

ELEANOR VAN DE KAMP
❝I'm a wandress, I'm a one night stand, don't belong to no city, don't belong to no man❞

Name: Eleanor [Greek - bright, shining one] Danielle [French - God is my judge] Van de Kamp [Dutch]
Nicknames: Eleanor does 'do' nicknames, but people have called her Ellie or Elle, much to her distaste.
Age: sixteen
Date of Birth: February 7th, 2000
Gender: Female
Godly Parent: Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty
Claimed: yes
Years at Camp: none

Mortal Family:
• Robert Van de Kamp // father
     If Eleanor was asked whom she hated the most out of everyone in the entire world, her father would be the answer on the tip of her tongue. Robert wasn't a good father; he drank, he had endless affairs, he got angry. More than once, Eleanor had to dodge a glass thrown at her, or worse. Robert treated his children like trophies, using them to parade around, while ignoring them in the house, insisting they make no sounds.
• Victoria Van de Kamp // step-mother
     Not so much ignored, as Max was, but ignored and detested. Eleanor knew her father tested the limits of her stepmothers patience by bringing her into the house and for that, Eleanor has always paid. Victoria Van de Kamp was also from a rich and well known family, and understood the necessity of appearance. She knew she needed to act like Eleanor and Max were her own, taking them to pre school and day care and eventually dropping them off at boarding school and sleep away camps, with fake kisses to seem like she cared, but that didn't stop Victoria from ignoring the children as soon as they were away from outside view.
• Maximillian Van de Kamp // brother
     Max and Eleanor have a complicated relationship. In a sense Max is the only family she has, an older brother turned pseudo parent. But Max isn't a parent in any way - he encouraged behavior that made the siblings no better than their parents. In most aspects, Max and Eleanor are like normal siblings, they fight and they tease each other, but Max is the only real friend Eleanor has, and the one person who understands what Eleanor has gone through.

Hometown: London, England
Brief History: Eleanor, a rich bankers brat, seemed to have everything. Money, family, a good school, anything she could have asked for. This could not be farther from the truth of the matter - the Van de Kamps were not happy people. Eleanor's father had a habit of sleeping with women (how her brother and her came around in the first place), and her stepmother was so busy planning her upper class meetings that she ignored her step children entirely. She didn't like them in the first place, especially since she had to pretend that they were her kids. Eleanor and Max were practically raised by their nanny, and the cook, and the butler. Anyone but their parents and Eleanor resented her father for that.

When Eleanor was very young, she didn't realize that Victoria was her step mother and didn't understand what she had done to make her mother hate her so. But as she grew, Eleanor began to see cracks in her life. She grew to understand her father's ways; she and Maximilian were props. They served to fulfill the appearance of normality, nothing more. Eleanor, from a very young age, was used to take care of herself - yet used to using her father as a threat as well. She liked being able to do that, it made it seem like she was close with her father, and it made other kids resent her. Never having many friends, Eleanor became extremely reliant on herself. She did things her own way, and only her own way. Life at the Van De Kamps consisted mostly of public appearances, of maintaining an Instagram and Facebook that made Eleanor seem like the girl who had it all.

By the time Maximillian was 14, her stepmother had reason enough to be rid of them and sent them to a British preparatory school, where they could be educated, but more importantly, they were out of the way. It was there that Eleanor spent her winters, and being very young when she was ripped away from her home, she grew up fast. Only shielded from the world by her brother, Eleanor and Max grew close.

Over the years, Eleanor had noticed that her father had some issues with self control, but she didn’t really know what they were as a young girl. But by the time Eleanor was 10, she had already dodged more than just a punch. Her father was either drunk or frustrated, and needed to get his anger out somewhere. Maximillian’s disagreements with his father didn’t help quell the fire, and it was Max who took the blunt of their father’s rage, although Eleanor didn’t really know how bad it was at the time. Once Max was gone, that’s when her father’s abuse started to get bad. Eleanor needed a way out, and she found it when a satyr approached her at school one afternoon before spring break. Eleanor took that chance instantly; she packed her things and without a second glance, boarded a plane across the pond to Long Island. She doesn’t even think her family noticed.

Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Brown
Height: 5’3”
General Appearance: The daughter of the goddess of beauty, Eleanor is, by anyone’s standard, beautiful. She’s not particularly tall or short, and would look average in a crowd, if it wasn’t for her immortal heritage. Eleanor looks effortlessly beautiful, and although she does wear makeup, she doesn’t need to. Her brown hair, which tumbles down her shoulders in ringlets, shimmers in the sunlight and frames her face almost perfectly without effort. She’s pale, but tans darkly in the summer, which sometimes looks unnatural and washed out, something that Eleanor hates. Eleanor’s eyes are brown and deep, something that gives her stare the feeling of coldness.

Eleanor works very hard on her appearance, just like her outward personality, and enjoys dressing up in fancy outfits and ballgowns. She’s active in concealing her flaws and knows how to dress so that no one notices how her shoulders are unnaturally square or put on makeup to distract from her nose, which she likes less than the rest of her body.
Face Claim: Sara Waisglass

Personality: Eleanor, from the outside, seems like an extremely petty person. She’s shallow and self concerned, and is vaguely disinterested in making conversation about anything that’s not herself or something that she finds interesting. In this sense, Eleanor is anyone’s normal beauty queen; self involved, mostly concerned with the latest fashion trends and who so-and-so is dating.

And although Eleanor is a typical beauty queen, and enjoys being like that, she’s a lot smarter than many give her credit for. Eleanor is not just a pretty face and although her public appearance is beneficial, she sometimes wishes that people saw her for more than just a beautiful body. She’s brilliant, not in the way of smarts, but in her own way. She knows exactly how to push people to their limits, gather the information she wants without seeming invasive or impertinent.

Eleanor’s manner is shifting, and although she is extremely in control of how she acts, it often depends on the day. She can be as nice as she can be mean, but no matter how she appears, one constant stays from day to day, and that is Eleanor’s insincerity. She doesn’t care what your problems are, but knows how to draw you in, just so that you can tell her the information she needs. In this way, she’s more her father’s daughter than anyone else. Max had his appearance and words, but Eleanor walked like him
and had his gentle touch, his soft spoken humor that had enchanted Aphrodite.

Eleanor enjoys fashion and make-up, and once rode horses at her prestigious English boarding school, but has since fallen out of the habit. She doesn’t have much else that she likes to do, besides look pretty. After all, she’s been at it for a long time. She doesn’t seem to like dirty things- whether people or objects or whatever. She also hates people who ask to many questions, and doesn’t like being told what to do, or what to think. And of course, she hates her father.
Fatal Flaw: Eleanor’s insincerity will drive her into the grave. She’s not consistent, and she allows fake Eleanor, the way she thinks she should act in the situation, rule her and sometimes Eleanor isn’t even sure how she would react if she weren’t constantly thinking about how she should react, or how her father would want her to react.

Pets: None
Talents: [Charmspeak] - Eleanor can convince people to do things, a talent she inherited from both of her parents. She’s able to use her words to manipulate others and is often able to get her way by the flash of a smile. Eleanor has been practicing this since she was born, practically, and her ability to do this is extremely high. She can’t convince people to do anything, but she could get them to do a lot.
Weapons: A silver blade that Eleanor’s brother gave to her. She doesn’t have much else and uses the camp weapons otherwise.
Year Round or Summer Camper?: Eleanor comes to camp whenever she gets kicked out of her brother’s apartment.
