Nico and being protective.
Nico has very few friends and he pretends he likes it that way but he craves attention and love. Will Cecil and Lou Ellen have figured this out and welcome him with open arms, Nico settles in to their friend group well and surprisingly quickly but is fiercely protective of his friends and boyfriend.
An idiotic Nemesis boy once called Will a fag. Nico had to be bodily dragged off of him to stop him from beating him to death. Clarisse cheered Nico on and tripped the boy on his way to the infirmary.
An Ares boy once said Piper was only a pretty face and that the only reason any of the seven plus liked her was because she charm spoke them into it. Jason almost challenged him to a duel but Nico just decked him, broke his nose and left him unconscious for two days.
One of the senate once insulted Reyna, something along the lines of women having no place outside the kitchen. As a physical confrontation would have likely gotten Nico arrested he had to settle for a verbal dressing down that literally left the man in tears.
Woe betide anyone who insults Hazel within hearing distance of Nico. A man once cat called her as they were walking through New York something about ‘black bitches’. Nico nearly snapped his neck and Hazel literally had to put herself between her brother and the offending mortal and repeatedly remind him that killing mortals was against the rules.
Cecil was once called nothing but a lowly thief in front of Nico and Nico broke the offending son of Hebe’s arm.
A visiting roman spat at Lou Ellen and called her a bloody witch. He caught an arrow to the shoulder. Will had to patch him up and apologize for Nico to avoid a lengthy confrontation and possible rekindling of war. Nico just glared the whole time and corrected Will when his boyfriend said he 'missed his target.’
Ok sleep calls.
