olympian appears

Annabeth Chase is in more Rick Riordan Books than Percy Jackson. Let that sink in



Hecate or Hekate (Greek Ἑκάτη) is a goddess in Greek religion and mythology, most often shown holding two torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She was variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, dogs, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. She is a pre-Olympian chthonic goddess and appears in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter and in Hesiod’s Theogony, where she is promoted strongly as a great goddess. In the post-Christian writings of the Chaldean Oracles (2nd-3rd century CE) she was regarded with (some) rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour (Soteira), Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul. She was one of the main deities worshiped in Athenian households as a protective goddess and one who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings on the family. source | edit

The Heroes of Olympus Characters According to Wikipedia:
  • Percy Jackson: Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a young demigod, the son of the mortal Sally Jackson and god Poseidon. He is the main protagonist in the Percy Jackson series and one of the main protagonists in the follow up Heroes of Olympus series. He is twelve years old in The Lightning Thief, and 16 years old in The Last Olympian. Percy is the protagonist and first-person narrator of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and one of the perspective characters in the Heroes of Olympus series, appearing in every book except The Lost Hero, though he is mentioned by Annabeth and some of the other campers. Like other half-human demigods, he is expected to act as the Olympian gods' agent in the mortal world, taking action where ancient laws forbid direct godly intervention, usually in the form of quests. He has internal love for Annabeth. His personality is described as "changeable" and hard to predict with the exception that he said to be rigidly loyal to his friends. His powers, which start small and develop as the books proceed, include controlling water, making hurricanes, breathing underwater, and talking to horses and sea creatures, one of the many priorities of being the son of Poseidon. He also becomes an accomplished sword fighter and leader. Throughout the series, Percy has a sword that looks like a ballpoint pen that changes when it is uncapped (in the books) or clicked(in the movies) and is called Anaklusmos a.k.a. Riptide. Percy is described to have sea green eyes and black hair and is commented by others as being handsome. His birthday is August 18, 1993.
  • Percy Jackson's fatal flaw is loyalty, which he at first questions how it can be a weakness, but then seems to accept it and try to not let it control him. Throughout the rest of Percy Jackson & The Olympians, Percy grows more confident and courageous. He overcomes several obstacles that have been thrown at him to keep him from saving the world. The Blood of Olympus ends with Percy and Annabeth planning to finish senior year in New York before heading to the college in New Rome.
  • Annabeth Chase: Annabeth Chase first appears in the series in the first book as a twelve–year-old girl. Her birthday is on July 12. She is the first female protagonist in the Percy Jackson series and the 5th protagonist in the sequel series. She is the daughter of Goddess Athena and mortal history professor Fredrick Chase. Annabeth is Percy's first guide at camp, and has blond hair, stormy gray eyes, and a severe case of Arachnophobia, something shared by most children of Athena. Annabeth also has a Yankees baseball cap, given to her by her mother, that can make her invisible. As a daughter of Athena, Annabeth is an excellent leader, a powerful combatant, and a brilliant strategist. She repeatedly expresses a desire to become an architect. Annabeth prides herself primarily on her intelligence and talent at fighting, and is adept at fighting with both her knife and sword. Her main weapon is a short knife given to her by Luke Castellan, her old friend (she later loses it in The Mark of Athena) . Her fatal flaw is Hubris. She believes that if she ruled the world, she would do a much better job, as stated in "The Sea of Monsters". In "The Battle of the Labyrinth", she refuses to answer the Sphinx's questions because of her pride in her wisdom.
  • Annabeth ran away from home at age seven and encountered two other demigods, Luke Castellan and Thalia Grace. They lived as runaways until they were found by Grover Underwood, a satyr who had been ordered to escort Thalia (who later died and was turned into a pine tree in which creates an invisible barrier that makes it so only demigods can enter camp but later returns in The Sea Of Monsters.) back to camp. Annabeth and Percy complete several quests together although she remains attached to Luke ( even after he betrayed her and tried to kill Percy.), causing some jealousy on Percy's part. Her attempts to bring Luke back into the fold are a minor theme in The Sea of Monsters through The Last Olympian.
  • In The Titan's Curse she holds up the weight of the sky longer than Percy. At the end of The Battle of the Labyrinth, Daedelus gives Annabeth his computer of projects that leads her to some great discoveries. At the beginning of The Last Olympian, Annabeth appears to be jealous of the character Rachel Elizabeth Dare, who attended school with Percy, because Annabeth suspects of Percy liking Rachel. At the end of The Last Olympian she is assigned to redesign the damaged city on Mount Olympus and Annabeth and Percy become a couple also known as "Percabeth" which is a combination of their names. During The Mark of Athena, Annabeth is given by Athena herself the task to restore the Athena Parthenos. At the end, Annabeth falls into Tartarus with Percy. They journey to the Doors of Death in the Heart of Tartarus with help of the memory forgotten Titan, Iapetus, or, Bob. Bob and the Giant, Damasen, give their lives to fight Tartarus, and return Percy and Annabeth to the mortal world. In the Blood of Olympus, she fights the Giants. She is one of the seven. At last, she is said to be studying in New York and that she has plans with Percy in New Rome.
  • Jason Grace: Jason Grace is a son of Jupiter, younger brother of Thalia Grace and son of Beryl Grace and Jupiter, is a perspective character in the Heroes of Olympus series. He grew up at Camp Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Greek Camp Half-Blood, where demigods born to the Olympians' Roman aspects receive their training. Jason is described as having corn blond hair, blue eyes, and a scar above his upper lip (according to Thalia, his older sister, he tried eating a stapler when he was two). He is of above-average height, with an athletic build and muscular arms. He has a tattoo burned under his forearm, with ten straight lines like a bar code, an eagle, and the letters SPQR over the lines. The tattoo symbolizes his ten years of service in the legion at Camp Jupiter; the eagle is a symbol of Jupiter.[11] By the age of fifteen, he had earned the rank of praetor and led the legion with his longtime quest partner, Reyna. Unbeknownst to the people in Camp Half-Blood, Jason led Camp Jupiter in a concurrent war against the Titans. While Percy led the defense of Olympus in Manhattan, Jason led an assault against Mount Othrys, a Titan stronghold near San Francisco.
  • Jason has few memories of his mother, who was compelled to give him up when he was two, but he remembers enough about Thalia to not be surprised when he sees her again. Thalia reveals that their mother had told her that Jason was dead, and that this precipitated her running away from home.
  • Of all the characters in the series, Jason is the one who struggles the most with the differences between the Greek and Roman perspectives. Piper McLean describes Jason as very rule- and duty-oriented, completing his chores without what would be a teenager's usual complaints, but the Roman god Terminus describes him as a "rule-flouter." However, when Reyna sees him again in The Mark of Athena, she comments that he seems to have lost some of his Roman qualities. When the Argo II is stuck in North Africa, he realizes that he must choose one identity or the other. He chooses to consider himself a son of Zeus, and is later unable to command a legion of ghosts that will otherwise obey Roman officers. During The House of Hades it is revealed that Jason has plans to return to Camp Jupiter to improve it with a mental list of things that he learned at Camp Half-Blood, such as giving the fauns more rights and responsibilities, like the satyrs at Camp Half-Blood.[12] Later, during The Blood of Olympus, Jason finally decides to consider both the Greek and Roman traditions as part of his heritage. He later takes on the role of Pontifex Maximus, which will see him travel between Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter to build shrines for every god and goddess in the pantheon, no matter how minor - thus allowing him to stay in touch with both aspects of his heritage.
  • Although Jason and Percy immediately recognize that it is best to work together, and are currently, as of The Blood of Olympus, best friends, their relationship is not without antagonism at first. As Percy puts it, it is natural for two powerful demigods to wonder which of them is stronger after a fight. Jason is a swordfighter like Percy, though they have different fighting styles. Jason uses an Imperial gold sword, styled as a Roman gladius, which he can extend into a pilum at will. It is possible that this is a trait common to all Roman demigods, as Reyna is also shown to turn her sword into a pilum at will. Jason has power over air currents and can fly "like a blond Superman." He can sense and control some air spirits and has, like Thalia, called down lightning, which he conducts through his Imperial Gold weapons. He has even been able to summon lightning while underwater, using it to strike and destroy multiple enemies at once. On one occasion, he and Percy together summoned a hurricane in Charleston harbor, though they both were very tired afterward. Jason can also emit static shoccks by touch, which seems to be tied to his emotions and sometimes happens by accident when he is surprised.
  • Piper McLean: Piper McLean is a daughter of Aphrodite. She is fifteen when she first appears, in The Lost Hero. Unlike most children of Aphrodite, Piper is tomboyish, mostly unconcerned with her appearance or fashion. Piper is mostly Cherokee on her father's side, and it is said that "[Her father] didn't really know what else [she was ethnically]". She is described as having choppy, uneven caramel-colored hair and eyes that change color. She has a slim build and an average height. Her father is Tristan McLean, a famous actor. She has the ability to use "charmspeak," a power of persuasion found in some of in Aphrodite's children in which she becomes more versatile as the books proceed.
  • Piper's relationship with her father is mutually affectionate but strained, in part because of the small amount of time and attention he spares for her. The giants kidnap him during The Lost Hero and attempt to blackmail her into betraying Jason and Leo, but they are able to rescue him. When Piper finds that her relationship with Jason was a trick in the mist, as seen in the The Lost Hero, she doesn't give up on them and continues to pursue him, finally dating him, as seen in The Mark of Athena . After her first quest, she confronts her cabin's vain and cruel head counselor, Drew, and successfully challenged her for the position, to the relief of her half-brothers and half-sisters.
  • She can also see things that are happening far away in her knife, Katoptris, which used to belong to Helen of Troy. After being captured by pirates in The House of Hades, Piper asks Hazel to teach her swordfighting and becomes slightly skilled in it.
  • Leo Valdez: Leo Valdez is a 15-year-old demigod, a son of Hephaestus, and the one of seven protagonists. Leo is described as looking like a "Latino Santa's Elf" with curly black hair, dark brown eyes, a cheerful face, with a slim build and a mischievous smile. He befriends Jason at the "Wilderness School", although it is later revealed that everything that happened prior to the Grand Canyon museum trip is actually a trick of the Mist. Leo also has the ability to touch and produce fire, a skill that no son of Hephaestus has had in 400 years. He is also an excellent mechanic due to his father's abilities and has experience working with machines, as his mother was also a mechanic. He repairs a bronze dragon that was previously running wild in the camp's woods, renaming it Festus. He also creates the Argo II, a ship to sail the seven for the quest to Greece.
  • Leo tends to fall quickly for girls. In The Mark Of Athena it is hinted he might have feelings for Hazel Levesque. Hazel Levesque discovers that Leo resembles her former boyfriend, Sammy Valdez. She suspects Sammy may be an ancestor of Leo's, which is discovered to be true. Hazel and Leo figure out that Sammy Valdez is Leo's great-grandfather in The Mark of Athena. In The House of Hades he falls in love with Calypso, daughter of Atlas, during his stay in Ogygia. He hides his pain of constantly being teased throughout his life, and from causing the death of his mother, with sarcasm, crude humor and witty jokes. He also shows signs of considering himself more inferior to the others, although he's just as important, maybe even more.
  • In The Blood of Olympus, Leo plays a crucial role in defeating Gaea. He sacrifices himself to annihilate Gaea, and dies in the process. He is later brought back to life using the Physician's Cure, which is given to him by Festus, his mechanical dragon, and finds Calypso on Ogygia.
  • Frank Zhang: Frank Zhang is a 16-year-old demigod, a son of Mars at Camp Jupiter, where he is Hazel Levesque's boyfriend. He is Chinese Canadian, and grows up with his grandmother after his mother is killed serving in the Canadian Army. Upon Percy's arrival at Camp Jupiter, Frank is the first to accept him.
  • Frank has a meek disposition and is uncomfortable upon learning his father's identity. He suspected himself a son of Apollo, given his skill with a bow and arrow, his preferred weapon. On his quest in The Son of Neptune, however, he uses an enchanted spear given to him by Mars when threatened by basilisks. To Frank's surprise, the spear summons a skeleton warrior that defeats the basilisks. Frank calls this skeleton "Gray". Frank is a descendant of Periclymenus, a grandson of Poseidon, meaning he is a relative to Percy, with the power to shapeshift. Periclymenus's descendants were sold into slavery in China, and migrated to Canada many years later. While battling Alcyoneus (who is invincible within Alaska), Frank tapped into this power and transformed into an elephant, after dragging Alcyoneus across the state line to Canada where he could be killed. However, his combined power of being a son of Mars and having the ability to shapeshift gives him too much power. The Fates balance this out by tying his life force to a piece of firewood; if the wood burns out, he will die (this is probably a reference to the ancient Greek legend of Meleager). Juno appears to his mother while he is a baby to warn her of this fact, as he would be crucial to defeating the Giants. Frank's grandmother grabs the stick and extinguishes the flame when Juno disappears. In all his life, Frank has ignited the wood twice; the first time is while he is finding his way to Camp Jupiter. It is snowing and he is cold, so he thinks about the stick igniting, and it does. However, he can feel his life force draining away, even though it warms him. He thrusts it into the snow to put it out. The second time is when he, Percy, and Hazel travel to Alaska to free Thanatos.
  • Frank was described as 'cuddly' and 'fuzzy' and with a chubby, babyish face in The Mark of Athena, but in The House of Hades, after summoning the Blessing of Mars to defeat a hoard of enemies, he transforms. He is then described as being taller, more muscular and loses all his childhood fat. He, although, is said to look like a buff koala bear.
  • Initially, he was wary of the tension between Hazel and Leo, as Leo reminded Hazel of her old boyfriend, Sammy Valdez. After Leo's encounter with Calypso, however, Leo became more relaxed around Hazel and there were no more signs of anything other than friendship, much to Frank's relief.
  • Hazel Levesque: Hazel Levesque is a thirteen-year-old demigod, a daughter of Pluto. She first appears in the book The Son of Neptune, at Camp Jupiter, It is later revealed that she has returned from the dead. She grew up in the 1930s and 1940s in New Orleans, where her mother had a gris-gris shop. When she was born, Pluto offered to grant her mother a wish, and she asked for great wealth, but her greed backfired into a curse. As Hazel grew older, precious metals and gems would frequently come up from the ground near her when she got nervous. However, these materials were cursed and brought misfortune to anyone who sold them. Gaea convinces Hazel's mother to take her to Alaska, over Pluto's protests, where Gaea tries to use Hazel's power over earth to resurrect her eldest son, the giant Alcyoneus, whose body is made out of precious metals and stones. When Hazel's mother changes her mind about helping Gaea, Hazel buries herself and her mother under the earth, delaying Alcyoneus's rebirth and killing them both. While Hazel's spirit is being judged, she gives up the chance to go to Elysium to save her mother from punishment, and they are both sent to the Fields of Asphodel instead.
  • At some point before The Lost Hero, Nico di Angelo finds Hazel in the Underworld while investigating an imbalance between life and death. He helps her escape to the world of the living and arranges for her to join Camp Jupiter. Hazel and Nico are shown as protective of each other. In The Son of Neptune, Hazel joins Frank Zhang and Percy on a quest to free Thanatos; along the way, she tames Arion, a violent, foul-mouthed, speedy horse that eats precious metals.
  • Hazel had a boyfriend, Sammy Valdez, in 1941. She later learns that Leo Valdez, who resembles him closely, is Sammy's great-grandson. Hazel's primary love interest during the series is Frank Zhang. She refers to having known and been friends with Jason before his disappearance.
  • Several characters speculate that Pluto may be deliberately ignoring Hazel so that he will not have to order her returned to the Underworld.
  • Hazel is described as African American, having cocoa-colored skin, curly cinnamon-brown hair, and golden eyes. Her legion tattoo is described as looking like a cross with curved arms and a head.
  • Hazel eventually learns to manipulate her curse, banishing cursed objects back into the earth, and sensing and moving precious metals, stones and other substances. She is an accomplished horse-rider and skilled with a spatha, a Roman cavalry sword. She is unusually knowledgeable about the Underworld because of her time there. During The House of Hades the goddess Hecate insists that Hazel learn to use magic, which in these books refers to manipulating the Mist to create and break through illusions.
  • Reyna Ramirez-Arellano: Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano is 16 years old. She is the 9th protagonist of the The Heroes of Olympus. She is a demigod daughter of Bellona at Camp Jupiter, she's the younger sister of Hylla, the Amazon Queen. At the beginning of "The Son of Neptune" she doesn't like Percy Jackson because he destroyed her childhood home on Circe's island, but toward the end when he killed the giant Polybotes, she forgave him.She is described as a natural leader who should really be queen of the world at this point, having glossy black hair and black eyes. She had the bearing of a swordswoman, relaxed and agile, but ready to attack. Piper describes her as "so beautiful, so powerful, so Roman..." and Percy as "too modest" and "pretty freaking heroic".
  • Reyna seems more self-sacrificing and mature than the seven in general. She's a Praetor at Camp Jupiter, which she leads alone during the disappearance of Jason. She was born in Puerto Rico and worked for Circe during the events of Sea of Monsters.
  • Reyna is often accompanied by her dogs, Aurum and Argentum (Gold and Silver), who can sense if someone is lying and her Pegasus Scipio "Skippy" who dies at the end of The House of Hades after extreme exhaustion and poison, much to Reyna's dismay and sadness.
  • Reyna has the ability to give her strength, bravery and courage to others. It grants her the title of Horse Friend by the legendary Pegasus and is blessed by Bellona and Athena, who gives her an aegis (magical cloak that is given to the bravest of heroes and was created from the mantle of the Goddess) and enshrined as heroin; "Accept my aegis. Reyna Ramírez-Arellano. For today, you have proved yourself a hero of Olympus."
  • Reyna seems to have a soft spot for animals, which is shown when she does not let them hurt the dogs, when she saves the life of Blackjack, adopt Guido, enters depression after the death of "Skippy" ... and of course Pegasus, the immortal lord of the horses, who gives her the honor of Horse Friend, saying he wanted to meet her and take her because he has never seen a demigod who has so much love and compassion towards a Pegasus.
  • In the Blood of Olympus she, Nico, and Coach Hedge go on a quest to get the Athena Parthenos to Camp Half-Blood, as a peace offering from the Romans to the Greeks. While shadow-travelling to get to New York, the trio lands in San Juan, Reyna's home town in Puerto Rico. The Hunters of Artemis kidnap Reyna and take her to an Amazon headquarters, where Reyna meets her sister Hylla and Thalia Grace. Orion breaks into the Amazon HQ, and the Reyna and Hylla escape to their old house. There are several ghosts there, all calling Reyna a traitor and murderer.
  • Nico di Angelo is the only character who knows about her childhood. Reyna reveals that the whole Ramirez-Arellano family had been favored by Bellona. Reyna's father had fallen in love with the idea of war and Bellona. Later, Reyna's father showed symptoms of PTSD and paranoia. He eventually became a mania, a ghost in which only is worst qualities remain. The mania had attacked Hylla, and the 10-year-old Reyna had picked up the closest weapon, an Imperial gold blade, and unknowingly killed her father. She fears discovery because patricide is "unforgivable" in New Rome.
  • Nico di Angelo: Nico di Angelo is ten when he first meets Percy in The Titan's Curse, when Percy, Thalia, Grover and Annabeth come to Nico's boarding school to bring him and his sister, Bianca di Angelo to camp. At the end of Titan's Curse it is revealed that Nico is the son of Hades. At first, it seems as though Hades must have, like Zeus and Poseidon, broken his post-World-War-II promise not to have more human children, but in fact Nico and Bianca had been born before the war and had been in Lotus Hotel and Casino, a place where time is much slower, for a "month" It is later revealed that their memories of their early lives had been washed away with water from the River Lethe.
  • Nico is initially shown as happy, cheerful and enthusiastic. During his first days at Camp Half-Blood, he follows Percy around and peppers him with questions, much to Percy's annoyance. He enjoys playing Mythomagic (a mythology-themed card game similar to Magic; The Gathering) and can quote the fictional statistics of gods and monsters from memory. After Nico learns of Bianca's death in The Titan's Curse, he is shown as strange, dark and gloomy, usually described as pale with shaggy black hair and a black shirt with a skull on it under an aviator jacket. He makes many other characters uncomfortable and is described as not belonging. He is ignored by the gods Hera and Pan, in different ways, while they are acknowledging other demigods and mortals. Nico initially blames Percy for the death of his sister Bianca, but the two later reconcile in The Battle of the Labyrinth when Nico contacts Bianca's ghost and she warns him against holding grudges, which she says is a fatal flaw for the children of Hades. It is revealed in The Battle of the Labyrinth that he has been living in the Underworld, camping next to the River Styx and learning about his powers from ghosts.
  • In The Last Olympian it is revealed that he had lived in Hades' palace in the Underworld for at least a short while and was working for him in the hopes of learning more about his human mother, though he had a very strained relationship with his stepmother Persephone. He shows Percy how to use the River Styx to become nearly invincible in combat. He later stays in the Underworld to convince Hades to help the other Olympians fight the Titans, eventually succeeding and returning with an undead army to defend Manhattan. After the battle, Nico is allowed to build a cabin at Camp Half-Blood specifically for the children of Hades, but it is not revealed how much time he spends there or where he primarily lives until the "Blood of Olympus" where he states that was the first time he had ever been there.
  • Unlike most demigods, Nico was privy to the fact that there were two camps, one Greek and one Roman, before The Lost Hero. In The Son of Neptune, it is revealed that Nico had taken advantage of the imbalance between life and death to bring Hazel Levesque, a daughter of Pluto and his half-sister, back from the dead. He brings her to New Rome and arranges for her to join the legion. Hazel and Nico are shown as somewhat close and invested in each other's well-being. Nico leaves New Rome to search the Underworld for clues regarding the cause of the recent imbalance between life and death. He is then captured by monsters and sealed inside a bronze jar.
  • In "The Son of Neptune" and "The Mark of Athena", he is captured by Gaea, and is one of only 3 mortal Tartarus survivors. In "The House of Hades", he admits to Cupid, or Eros and Jason Grace, that he is gay. He had a liking towards Percy but now he just isn't his type. In "The Blood of Olympus", it is implied by the author that he is blooming a romantic relationship with Apollo Cabin Head Counselor, Will Solace.
