He blinked at me in confusion. His cornrows were sprinkled with ashes like frost on a field. I suppose it took a moment for him to process why he was being fawned over by a grungy, half deranged boy with acne.
the difference between Percy Jackson and the MCs of Rick Riordans newer series like Magnus Chase and Apollo/lester, are intresting.
Percy is described as being brave reasonably handsome, not booksmart but intelligent. He’s the son of a major god and is a good warrior his companions are: a smart pretty scary girl, goat boy, cyclopes kid, giant hell hound.
Then we have Magnus, he’s reasonably friendly, but more of a smart ass than is good for him, he dropped out of high school, was homeless then died. he can heal, but all his fighting is done by his sassy talking sword. Also hes so salty. The sassiest. his companions are a scary muslim valkiry, a gay dwarf elf duo (which consists of his def elf and fashionable dwarf), and as I mentioned a sassy talking sword.
Then finally we have lester/apollo, who is flabby, acne prone, egotistical, self pitying, bi as fuck, and gets beat up alot. His powers include: feeling sorry for himself, singing the people around him into depression, regretting stuff, killing his loves, and kinda archery. His companions are: his blunt street urchin back stabbing child girl, his gay ass son, his gay ass sons emo gay ass boy friend, and his hippe grandma.
