This is a list of characters in the Camp Half-Blood chronicles, including the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series and in the Heroes of Olympus series.

Main characters[edit]

Percy Jackson[edit]

Main article: Percy Jackson

Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a young demigod who is the son of Sally Jackson and Poseidon (Poseidon's Roman form is Neptune). In "Percy Jackson and the Olympians", Percy's age ranges from 12-17. In the movie Percy Jackson's powers include controlling water, making hurricanes, breathing underwater, and talking to horses. Percy is the protagonist and narrator of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and one of the main characters in the Heroes of Olympus series.

He was portrayed by Logan Lerman in the film adaptation of The Lightning Thief and The Sea of Monsters.

Annabeth Chase[edit]

Annabeth Chase is a 12–17-year-old girl, the daughter of Athena and Frederick Chase. She runs away from home when she is seven years old, encountering two other demigods, Luke Castellan, son of Hermes, and Thalia Grace ,daughter of Zeus. Her birthday is 12 July. When Grover Underwood, the satyr, finds them, he tries to lead them back to Camp Half-Blood but makes a wrong turn into a Cyclops's lair. The Cyclops captures Luke, Thalia, and Grover. When Annabeth finds them, the Cyclops mimics her dad's voice. To the Cyclops's surprise, she stabs him in the foot. Then she frees Thalia, who takes it from there, saving Luke and Grover. When she gets to camp, on Half-Blood Hill, Thalia holds up an army of monsters for them (Grover, Luke, and Annabeth) to get away. Thalia eventually gets hurt and is dying. Zeus takes pity on his daughter and turns her into a pine tree to save her life. For five years she waits for her chance to lead a quest into the real world. She gets her chance when Percy Jackson comes along.

In the first book, Percy describes her as having curly blonde hair, gray eyes, with a tan and athletic build. He says that she would look like a stereotypical California girl, except her stormy gray eyes ruin the image. She is first seen when she is feeding Percy nectar and is asking him about what will happen at the summer solstice. He is expecting admiration from her after he defeats the Minotaur, which is what most of the demigods have been training for. Afterward, he sees her again when Chiron introduces them. She soon leaves. Annabeth has to introduce him to the Hermes cabin, where he is placed until he is claimed by Poseidon. She joins Percy on all his quests, except in The Titan's Curse, when she is captured, and in The Battle of the Labyrinth, where she becomes Quest Leader, taking Percy along as her second. In The Lightning Thief, Percy notices she seems to have a crush on Luke, but it disappears over the first series and is gone in The Last Olympian. Luke asks her if she ever loved him, she told him only as a brother.She begins to develop feelings for Percy in The Titans Curse when Percy held up the sky for her and Artemis, showing that he cared for her. She becomes jealous of Rachel Elizabeth Dare and Calypso, as she suspects Percy of having a crush on them. Annabeth kisses Percy in The Battle of the Labyrinth when she thinks he is going to die instead of punching him as he suspects. They begin to date in "The Last Olympian". In The Lost Hero, when Percy goes missing, she searches non-stop for him until she and Jason Grace (Thalia's long-lost brother) come to the conclusion that he is in the Roman Camp. In The Son of Neptune, she is the only person Percy remembers from his past. In The Mark of Athena, she and Percy reunite, and she has her own solo quest, to follow the Mark of Athena. She frees the Athena Parthenos by tricking Arachne, but in the end she and Percy fall into Tartarus when her leg is caught in one of Arachne's spiderwebs. She could not cut it because her knife and backpack had fallen into Tartarus and Percy's sword, Riptide, was out of reach. In "The House of Hades" she and Percy stumble around Tartarus together and finally find the doors of death, close them, and get out of Tartarus.

Annabeth is considered to be quite beautiful, especially by Percy. Aphrodite once complimented her, saying, "Annabeth, you've grown into quite a beautiful young lady." In The Mark of Athena, Chrysaor also complimented her by saying "It would be shameful to kill this pretty young lady." while he captured the Argo II. Annabeth is also very strong as shown in The Titans Curse where she was able to hold the weight of the sky, albeit briefly. Despite having good looks, she prides herself more on her intelligence and talent at fighting. As a daughter of Athena, Annabeth excels at anything having to do with academic studies or useful arts and crafts. One of her main weapons is her intellectual abilities, especially her strategic excellence. She is said to want to become an architect when she grows up and also redesigns Mount Olympus after the titan war. She is also a very powerful and experienced fighter, partially since she has been training since age seven.

In the first film adaptation, Annabeth has brown hair while in the second film adaptation, she has blonde hair (because she has blonde hair in the books). She was portrayed by Alexandra Daddario in the film adaptation of "The Lightning Thief" and "Sea of Monsters".

Grover Underwood[edit]

Grover Underwood is the best friend of Percy Jackson and a satyr. In the series, satyrs are in charge of identifying demigods living in the mortal world. After serving as Percy's protector in The Lightning Thief, he became a searcher, a coveted job among satyrs, enabling him to seek the lost god Pan. When Polyphemus captures him in The Sea of Monsters, he forms a psychic bond with Percy, called an empathy link, allowing them a limited degree of telepathic communication across great distances. He uses this ability to guide Percy to his rescue. He joins Percy's quest to find Artemis in The Titan's Curse, and in the process falls in love with a tree nymph named Juniper, although earlier he was apparently in love with a "blueberry bush". He eventually finds Pan in The Battle of The Labyrinth, who peacefully dies, and eventually gains recognition from the elder satyrs for his courage in battle against the Titans, where he led along Percy. In the end of The Last Olympian, he becomes the God of the Wild and a part of The Council of Cloven Elders. Grover helps Rachel deliver a message from Annabeth to Reyna in The House of Hades.

Grover is described as having curly brown hair, little goat horns, and brown eyes, white pimply skin, a brown chin beard, and brown goat-legs.

In the film adaptations, Grover is portrayed by Brandon T. Jackson.

Thalia Grace[edit]

Thalia Grace (pronounced THAH-lee-uh) is a 15 (immortal, but will die if killed in battle) -year-old demigod, a daughter of Zeus. She is the older sister of Jason Grace. She runs away from home at age nine and stays with Luke Castellan and Annabeth until they meet Grover when she is 12. The party arrives at the camp with a band of monsters pursuing them. Thalia confronts the monsters, allowing Grover and the other demigods to escape to the magically protected Camp Half-Blood. The monsters overpower her, but Zeus takes pity on her sacrifice, transforming her into a pine tree to save her from death.

Percy and his friends restore Thalia to life with the power of the Golden Fleece, and she joins them for the quest in The Titan's Curse. She soon joins the Hunters of Artemis, a band of immortal female archers in service to the goddess Artemis. Thalia joins the hunters the day before her sixteenth birthday, so that she wouldn't be the child of the prophecy. In The Last Olympian, she and the other Hunters help fight the Titan army of Kronos.

Thalia has electric-blue eyes and spiky black hair, and she wears dark makeup and punk style clothing. Annabeth considers Thalia's personality to be very close to Percy's, as she once said that Percy and Thalia could be each other's best friends or worst enemies.

In April 2012, Paloma Kwiatkowski was cast as Thalia for the Sea of Monsters film adaptation.[1]

Thalia Grace has a silver bracelet (which she gained during the Demigod Diaries) and when she touches it and says "Aegis!", it changes into a shield, Aegis. She carries her spear in a collapsible Mace container. The traditional shield Aegis is said to have Medusa's face moulded into it, and people scatter in fear at the sight of it. Thalia's shield does as well. Thalia is suspected to either have been named after the muse or the Grace, Thalia, both daughters of Zeus.

Nico di Angelo[edit]

Nico di Angelo is eleven when he first meets Percy in The Titan's Curse. He is the younger brother of the late Bianca di Angelo. Nico's Roman half-sister is Hazel Levesque, a daughter of Hades's Roman counterpart Pluto. Nico's and Bianca's existence initially seem to prove treachery on the part of Hades, who joined Zeus and Poseidon after World War II in swearing not to father any more half-blood children. In fact, the Di Angelos had been born before World War II, and were kept in the Lotus Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where time behaves differently and people don't age. Over 70 years passed before Alecto, a Fury, removed them from the Lotus to Washington, D.C. Subsequently, the siblings grew up in a boarding school in Maine, Westover Hall. Unlike most demigods, he does not live at Camp Half-Blood or Camp Jupiter, because although Percy Jackson's reward at the end of The Last Olympian included all demigods being treated fairly, he is not truly accepted at Camp Half Blood because of his father Hades.

After his sister Bianca dies on a quest with Percy, Nico holds a grudge against him, but the two later reconcile when Nico speaks to his sister's ghost. In The Son of Neptune, Nico is captured and sealed in a bronze jar; Piper, Jason, and Percy rescue him at the end of The Mark of Athena. He senses Annabeth and Percy are not dead after they fall into Tartarus.

In The House of Hades, Nico leads the group across Italy to meet Percy and Annabeth at the Necromanteion in Epirus to close the Doors of Death, and on the way there faces Cupid in Split to gain the scepter of Diocletian alongside Jason Grace. During their encounter, Nico reveals under pressure by Cupid that he is in love with Percy Jackson, though he chose to keep it a secret from everyone else in fear of rejection.

Unlike most demigods, who fight with celestial bronze or Imperial gold weapons, Nico wields a Stygian iron sword capable of killing monsters and absorbing their essence. Because of his father's abilities, Nico has powers of geokinesis, and can manipulate the earth (such as creation of fissures); he also has the power of necromancy, and can put ghosts to sleep, silence ghosts with a gesture, summon undead warriors, and communicate with the dead.

Luke Castellan[edit]

Luke Castellan is a 19-year-old demigod, the son of Hermes and May Castellan. Introduced as the friendly head counselor of the Hermes cabin in The Lightning Thief, he is soon revealed as an antagonist and a servant of Kronos. At the end of "The Lightning Thief", Luke gets a new weapon; a sword called "Backbiter" that is half Celestial bronze and half steel, able to harm both mortals and demigods alike. Luke holds a grudge against the gods after his father doesn't help him when his mother has fits from being driven insane from seeing the future. After running away from home at age nine, he travels around the country with Thalia and then, eventually, Annabeth. It is hinted in The Demigod Diaries that he and Thalia were in a romantic relationship, seen when Thalia kisses him on the cheek; he obviously cares a lot about her seeing as he added Thalia's death to list of things the gods were to pay for in The Lightning Thief, and how he pleaded for her to join Kronos' side in The Titan's Curse.

Near the end of The Battle of the Labyrinth, Luke bathes in the Styx, obtaining the curse of Achilles, in order to host the spirit of Kronos. He changes back into his own self for a moment after Rachel Elizabeth Dare hits him with a hairbrush while he is possessed by Kronos. He allows Kronos to use his body in the war against the Olympians, but redeems himself by stabbing his Achilles spot (his weak spot) near his armpit on his left arm, destroying himself and Kronos. He turns out to be the hero of the prophecy because of his sacrifice. As he dies, Luke explains to Percy the sadness he feels for all the kids who end up in his father's cabin because they are unclaimed, which inspires Percy's requests from the gods, which are for Camp Half-Blood to recognize the minor gods and the gods' duty of having to claim their children by the age of thirteen.

Luke is described as handsome, with sandy hair, blue eyes (gold when possessed by Kronos), and a long scar on his cheek given to him by Ladon while trying to steal a golden apple from the Garden of Hesperides; a quest offered to him by Hermes, God of Travelers and Thieves, which he failed.

In the film adaptations, Luke is played by Jake Abel.

He thinks of Annabeth as a little sister that he takes care of more than a girlfriend. He obviously cares about both Annabeth and Thalia and feels like he is responsible for them.

Jason Grace[edit]

Jason Grace is a son of Jupiter, brother of Thalia Grace and a protagonist of the 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. He comes from Camp Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Greek Camp Half-Blood, where demigods born to the Olympians' Roman aspects receive their training. 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.

In The Lost Hero, Hera/Juno switches him and Percy Jackson the respective leaders at their camps and steals their memories. In the rest of the book, Jason's memories begin to return to him as he quests to rescue Hera and Piper's father. He and Piper also develop romantic feelings for each other. Eventually Jason, Piper, and Leo meet Percy and Annabeth to discuss an alliance between the camps against Gaea's armies, as Hera had planned.

Jason is described as having cropped golden-blond hair, blue eyes, and a scar above his upper lip (according to Thalia, his older sister, he has tried eating a stapler when he was two). He is above average height, with an athletic build and muscular arms. He has a tattoo burned under his forearm, with twelve straight lines like a bar code, an eagle, and the letters SPQR over the lines. The tattoo symbolizes his twelve years (made every year since he is three) spent at Camp Jupiter; the eagle is a symbol of Jupiter.

He ends up in a strong relationship with Percy Jackson

Leo Valdez[edit]

Leo Valdez is a 15-year-old demigod, a son of Hephaestus. 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, naming 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, although in The House of Hades he falls in love with Calypso during his stay in Ogygia.

In The Mark of Athena, 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.

Piper McLean[edit]

Main article: Piper McLean

Piper McLean, is a 15-year-old demigod, a daughter of Aphrodite.She is the girlfriend of Jason Grace. Unlike most children of Aphrodite, Piper is tomboyish, unconcerned with her appearance or fashion. Her father is Tristan McLean, a famous Cherokee actor. She has the ability to use charmspeak, a power of persuasion and a rare ability in Aphrodite's children. She has unwittingly used this power to talk people into giving her things, such as a BMW convertible, and been accused of theft in the process. She owns a dagger, Katoptris (Looking Glass in Ancient Greek), that used to belong to Helen of Troy. It allows her to see images from the future, but she often describes it as a nuisance when it shows her disturbing images. She uses it to predict events, but they are often warped or show only part of the picture. At Camp Half-Blood, she refuses to give in to the bullying of her cabin's head counsellor Drew, and eventually successfully challenges her for the position. She can speak French, as she is a daughter of Aphrodite and French is the language of love.

Piper is described as having uneven caramel-colored hair, and has eyes that change color. Piper is half-Cherokee on her father's side. She has a slim build and an average height.

When she first appeared in the series and was claimed by Aphrodite she didn't like her "pretty/girly makeover" and she tried everything to ruin/get rid of it. She is the only other known "charm-speak" person including the last head Aphrodite cabin counselor. Piper is known to stand up for herself and other people. When Piper didn't know about Camp it seems like people teased her about her dad. Piper seems shy but she is actually brave and kind. For a portion of The Mark of Athena, she was jealous of Percy and Annabeth's relationship while Jason was acting distant. She is in The Lost Hero, The Mark of Athena, and The House of Hades, and appeared briefly in The Son of Neptune.

Hazel Levesque[edit]

Main article: Hazel Levesque

Hazel Levesque is a 13-year-old demigod, a daughter of Pluto at Camp Jupiter, where she is friends with Frank Zhang, whom she soon starts to date. She grew up in New Orleans, where her mother had a gris-gris shop. Due to her heritage from Pluto, and her mother's greedy wish for all the riches under the earth, precious metals and gems would frequently come up from the ground near her when she got nervous or summoned them. However, these materials were badly cursed, and brought misfortune to anyone who took them. Hazel's mother is convinced by Gaea to take her to Alaska where Gaea tries to use Hazel's power over earth to bring forth her eldest son, the giant Alcyoneus. When Hazel's mother changes her mind about helping Gaia, Hazel buries herself and her mother by calling on the riches beneath the earth, and delaying Alcyoneus's rebirth. She dies in 1942 and gives up the chance to go to Elysium to save her mother from punishment, sending them both to Asphodel instead. Her mother is a Louisiana Creole, so Hazel knows a small amount of French.

Before the series began, Nico di Angelo unsuccessfully seeks his sister Bianca in the Underworld. Nico finds his half-sister Hazel, however, and helps her escape to the world of the living and Camp Jupiter. Hazel feels protective of Nico and slightly jealous of Bianca di Angelo. She feels like she owes a lot to Nico. Hazel then journeys with Frank and Percy to free Thanatos; along the way, she tames Arion, a violent, speedy horse that eats precious metals. She had a crush on Sammy Valdez back in her first life and gets him confused with Leo. Sammy is his bisabuelo, meaning great-grandfather.

Hazel is described as African American, having cocoa-colored skin, cinnamon-brown hair, golden eyes, and her tattoo is described as looking like a cross with curved arms and a head.

Frank Zhang[edit]

Main article: 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 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. She 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.

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.

Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano[edit]

Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano is 15 years old. She is a demigod daughter of Bellona at Camp Jupiter, she's the sister of Hylla, the Amazon Queen. 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 first series with her sister. Reyna is often accompanied by her Pegasus Scipio 'Skippy' and her Automaton dogs, Aurum and Argentum (Gold and Silver), who can sense if someone is lying and will attack. In the end of The House of Hades, Scipio dies after extreme exhaustion and fatal poison, much to Reyna's dismay and sadness.

Nyx is described by Annabeth to be "as tall as the Athena Parthenos, but very much alive."
  • Ourea – The Ourea are the primordial Gods of the Mountains who are the children of Gaea. In The House of Hades, there were some Ourea that make up the Apennine Mountains.

Both of them are sucked into a vacuum that is Tartarus' face when Tartarus shows up to fight Percy and Annabeth.
  • Oceanus – The Titan of the ocean. Oceanus is depicted as having the upper body of a muscular man with a long beard and horns and the lower body of a serpent. He did not fight the Olympians in the Titanomachy. In The Last Olympian, he becomes convinced Kronos will be able to defeat Olympus. Oceanus joins the other Titans in the war, assaulting Poseidon's forces underwater. After the defeat of Kronos, Oceanus escapes back to the depths of the ocean.[7]
  • Prometheus – The Titan of forethought. Like Oceanus, Prometheus prefers to fight for the more powerful side. He supported the Olympians in the Titanomachy, but joins the Titan army in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series because he had a foresight that the Titans would win.

In The House of Hades, Alcyoneus is among the giants that Hyperion and Krios get through the Doors of Death.

  • Enceladus – Enceladus was the first Gigantes to be reawakened in the Heroes of Olympus series. In The Lost Hero, he was killed by Jupiter, who threw lightning at him, and Jason, as the giants can only be killed by a god and a hero working together. He opposes Athena. In The House of Hades, Enceladus is among the giants that Hyperion and Krios get through the Doors of Death.
  • Ephialtes and Otis – Ephialtes and Otis are twin Gigantes who make up the Aloadae. They are awakened in The Mark of Athena by Gaia. Ephialtes and Otis manage to capture Nico di Angelo and were tasked by Gaia to kill all demigods of prophecy but two. They fight Jason and Percy who defeat them with the help of Bacchus. They both oppose Dionysus. In The House of Hades, Ephialtes and Otis are among the giants that Hyperion and Krios get through the Doors of Death.

She falls in love with Percy, and is heartbroken when he leaves; thousands of years ago, she experienced this with Odysseus. She was punished thus for supporting her father Atlas in the Titanomachy.[5] She is thought to be released from her punishment at Percy's wish near the end of The Last Olympian, but it is clear that she is not because Leo got sent there and Calypso is still on the island as seen in the "House of Hades." Of course it can also be assumed that she was freed from her punishment, but still living on the island.[7]
  • Charon – Charon is the ferryman who carries the dead across the river Styx to the underworld. Percy and his friends meet him in The Lightning Thief.

In "The Serpent's Shadow," Ruby Kane mentions rival gods and magic to that of Egypt.

  • King Sisyphus – A former ruler of Corinth. He had committed violations of guest hospitality, seduced his niece, plotted to kill his brother Salmoneus, and told the River God Asopus where Zeus had his daughter. His major crimes involved cheating death twice. The first where he tricked Thanatos into showing him how the chains worked causing Thanatos to be trapped until Ares freed him (Thanatos being trapped displeased Ares since no one in battle could die). The second time was when he complained to Persephone that his wife Merope did not give him a proper funeral and sent Sisyphus' spirit to the living. Even when Sisyphus did not want to return to the Underworld, he was forcefully dragged back there by Hermes. His punishment in The Fields of Punishment was to push a boulder up a hill. When it got close to the top, the boulder would roll back to the bottom and Sisyphus was condemned to begin again. He appears in The Demigod Files in the story titled The Sword of Hades when Percy and Nico ask him advice while Thalia pushes the boulder up the hill. He does not really help them much, but he does say that he helped someone else. He said that he told that other person to go see Melinoe.

When he tried to pluck the fruit to eat, the branches of the tree rose out of his reach and when he bent down to drink the water, the level would retreat. Tantalus became "tantalised" by having food and drink close to him, but unable to enjoy either. He becomes the activities director at Camp Half-Blood after Chiron is fired. He appears in The Sea of Monsters as a minor character. Even when hired as the activities director, he could not eat or drink as the food kept evading him. Tantalus is shown to hate Percy and his friends even more than he hates most half-bloods, yet shows favoritism to Clarisse, as when naming her hero when the camp was attacked by Colchis Bulls or when she wins the chariot race and throwing a banquet in her honor. When Tyson is brought to camp, Tantalus insults and makes fun of him even when Tyson is claimed by Poseidon. When the camp is attacked by a large flock of Stymphalian birds, Tantalus blames it on Percy, Annabeth, and Tyson's "bad chariot driving" despite that they were the ones who defeated the birds. At the end of the book, his curse is lifted by Dionysus just before he is sent back to the Underworld as he attempts to take some food along. Though none of the campers are sad to see him go.
