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.

Characters[edit]

Percy Jackson[edit]

Main article: Percy Jackson

Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a young demigod, the son of the mortal Sally Jackson and Poseidon (Neptune). He is 12 years old in The Lightning Thief, and 16 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. In the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, Percy's age ranges from twelve to sixteen. 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. He also becomes an accomplished swordfighter and leader. 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. Percy is described as having black hair with sea-green eyes. 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[edit]

Annabeth Chase first appears in the series as a twelve–year-old girl, and she turns seventeen during House of Hades. She is the daughter of Athena and mortal history professor Frederick Chase. Annabeth is Percy's first guide at camp.

She ran away from home at age seven, encountering two other demigods, Luke Castellan and Thalia Grace along the way. They live as runaways for a time until they were found by Grover Underwood, a satyr who had been ordered to escort Thalia back to camp. Annabeth and Percy complete several quests together, and they become a couple, although she remains attached to Luke, 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. Later she is appears jealous of Rachel Elizabeth Dare because she suspects Percy of having a crush on her.

She prides herself primarily on her intelligence and talent at fighting. Alexandra Daddario, who portrayed Annabeth in the film adaptations, described Annabeth's physicality as a huge part of preparing for the action and fight scenes.[1] In The Titan's Curse she holds up the weight of the sky. As a daughter of Athena, Annabeth excels at anything having to do with academic studies or useful arts and crafts. She repeatedly expresses a desire to become an architect. At the end of The Last Olympian, she is rewarded by being allowed to redesign the damaged city on Mount Olympus.

During the Mark of Athena it is reveled that Annabeth has been given a quest from Athena herself, to restore the Greeks most prized possession the Athena Parthenon. The statue plays an great importance among the second series.

Also during the Mark of Athena she reveals how much pain she had been in for the six months that Percy had been away for. Her fatal flaw is Hubris, which means pride. In The Sea of Monsters, she is shown a vision of her pride, which takes place in a redesigned Manhattan. In The Blood of Olympus, she joins six more demigods to defeat Gaea the earth mother.

Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano[edit]

Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano is 16 years old. She is a demigod daughter of Bellona at Camp Jupiter, she's the younger sister of Hylla, the Amazon Queen. She is described as a natural leader,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 die 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 granted her the title of Horse Friend and was blessed by Bellona and Athena, who gives her an aegis (magical cloak that they give it to the bravest 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, this 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 had 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 jumping 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,who is now a very good friend of her, is the only character who knows about her childhoold, 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 syptoms of PTSD and paranoia. He eventually became a mania, or a insane soul. 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. She gives her life at the end of "Blood of Olympus" so that Leo can survive. Her Praetor title is given to Frank Zhang

Grover Underwood[edit]

Grover Underwood, a satyr, becomes Percy's best friend during the first series. He is first seen in The Lightning Thief, where he is disguised as a human student at Percy's school, serving as his surreptitious protector and observer. Grover later reveals that if he completes enough protector missions, he will receive his "searcher's license" from the other satyrs, and leave to look for the missing god Pan, his life's ambition. 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. He eventually finds Pan in The Battle of The Labyrinth, though the elder satyrs do not believe him when he reports having witnessed Pan's death. At the end of The Last Olympian, he is named a Lord of the Wild and given a seat on the satyrs' ruling council.


Grover is described as having curly brown hair, brown eyes, white pimply skin, a brown chin beard, and brown goat-legs, which he disguises with fake feet when necessary. His horns grow larger as the series progresses, and he must take increasingly careful measures to hide them while posing as human.

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

Thalia Grace[edit]

Thalia Grace (pronounced THAH-lee-uh) is a teenaged demigod, a daughter of Zeus. In The Lost Hero she is revealed to be the older sister of Jason Grace. She runs away from home at age 9 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 save Thalia's life, Zeus transforms her into a pine tree. Her spirit then powers a magical barrier that protects the camp. Like Percy and Nico, she is believed to be a possible subject of a prophecy stating that a child of either Zeus, Poseidon or Hades will either save or destroy Olympus at age 16.

At the end of The Sea of Monsters, Percy and his friends restore Thalia to life with the power of the Golden Fleece, finding she has aged a few years while a tree. At the end of The Titan's Curse. She soon joins the Hunters of Artemis, a band of immortal female archers in service to the goddess Artemis. This freezes her age before her sixteenth birthday, taking her out of the running for the prophecy. In The Last Olympian, she and the other Hunters help fight the Titan army.

Thalia has electric-blue eyes and spiky black hair, and she wears dark makeup and punk style clothing. Annabeth remarks that Thalia's personality is similar to Percy's. Thalia's weapons of choice are at first shield, Aegis, which causes fear in those who see it, and a spear. After The Titan's Curse, she uses a bow and hunting knives, but she still uses Aegis.

In April 2012, Paloma Kwiatkowski was cast as Thalia for the Sea of Monsters film adaptation.[2]

Nico di Angelo[edit]

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 runs more slowly than normal. 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.

After learning that Bianca has been killed during The Titan's Curse, Nico runs away from Camp Half-Blood, blaming Percy for her death. 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. After The Last Olympian, 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. In The Son of Neptune it is shown that he is a frequent visitor to New Rome, where he is known as Pluto's emissary.

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 is shown as acting alone and behind the scenes or in a support capacity rather than officially joining or leading any quests. In The Last Olympian, 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. In the same book, Nico leaves New Rome to search the Underworld for clues regarding the cause of the recent imbalance between life and death. Off-screen, he is captured by monsters and sealed inside a bronze jar. Rescuing him before he can expire is a key plotline in The Mark of Athena. In The House of Hades, Nico leads the group across Italy to meet Percy and Annabeth at the Necromanteion in Epirus so that they can close the Doors of Death.

Many of the characters of the first series speculate that Nico has or had a crush on Annabeth, in part because he seems so uncomfortable around Annabeth and Percy together. During The House of Hades, he and Jason Grace must retrieve the scepter of Diocletian from the god Eros (Cupid). During their encounter, Cupid demands that Nico admit his secret in exchange for the scepter. Under pressure, he reveals that he was in love with Percy Jackson, though he chose to keep it a secret from everyone else in fear of rejection. Jason attempts to reassure Nico, but instead promises not to say anything. Rick Riordan has said that Nico's sexual orientation was not planned but rather developed "the longer [he] wrote about his character" and that he included a gay hero in his books because he taught so many gay and bisexual students whom he felt deserved representation. He has stated that because his books are for middle grades, they should not and will not contain sexual content beyond the occasional kiss but that treating sexual identity as an adults-only topic is "absurd."[3] The Guardian describes this part of Nico's arc as "subtle and effective."[4]

Nico has several different powers and abilities. He is able to feel when people die, which he describes as a buzzing sensation. He is also able to summon, communicate with, command, and banish ghosts, skeletal warriors and other undead. On one occasion, he raises a wall of rock out of the ground to stop pursuers. He can enter a death trance, which allows him to survive in stasis, by eating magical pomegranate seeds. Unlike Hazel, he is not shown as particularly connected to wealth or precious metals. He is also shown as unusually comfortable in the Underworld and knowledgeable about its geography and properties, but it is not clear whether this is supernatural or merely the result of his having lived there. 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.

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, younger brother of Thalia Grace and 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. 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.

In The Lost Hero, Hera (Juno) kidnaps both Percy Jackson and Jason Grace, removes most of their memories, and leaves each where they will find or be found by their opposite camps. Hera hopes that this "exchange of leaders" will help the camps form an alliance and defeat the giants. In the rest of the book, Jason's memories begin to return to him as he undergoes 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's primary romantic interest is Piper McLean, but his earlier adventures with Reyna, which are not shown, are a major part of his life. Although he and Reyna were not expressly in a romantic relationship, they had completed quests together and made plans for future adventures. Similarly, his best friend in the books is Leo Valdez, but he refers to earlier friendships with Romans Dakota, Gwen and Hazel. Jason expresses some guilt at leaving Reyna to run the legion on her own and for disappointing her other hopes.

Jason has few memories of his mother, who was compelled to give him up when he was four, 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 (Greek) 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." 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. 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.

Although Jason and Percy immediately recognize that it is best to work together, their relationship is not without antagonism. As Percy puts it, it is natural for two powerful demigods to wonder which of them is stronger.

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 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.

Jason is a swordfighter like Percy, though they have different fighting styles. Jason has some power over air currents and can almost fly "like a blond Superman." He can sense and control some air spirits and has, like Thalia, called down lightning. On one occasion, he and Percy together summon a hurricane in Charleston harbor, though both are very tired afterward.

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.

In The Blood of Olympus, Leo plays a crucial role in defeating Gaea. He sacrifices himself and annihilates Gaea, andies. He is later brought back to life using the physician's cure, and finds Calypso on Ogygia.

Piper McLean[edit]

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. 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. She has unwittingly used this power to talk people into giving her things, such as a BMW convertible, even though her father would have bought her it.

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.

Her primary love interest is Jason Grace, though the gods Zethes and Achelous also both take an unwelcome interest in her.

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.

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

Piper's powers include charmspeak, in which she becomes more versatile as the books proceed, and an innate ability to speak French. She can also see things that are happening far away in her knife, Katoptris. After being captured by pirates in The House of Hades, she asks Hazel to teach her swordfighting and becomes slightly skilled in it.

Hazel Levesque[edit]

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 Gaia, 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 Last Olympian, 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, 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 his 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.

Frank Zhang[edit]

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.

Hylla Ramírez-Arellano[edit]

Hylla Ramírez-Arellano She's the big sister of Reyna, the praetor of camp jupiter, she is 22 years old. She is a demigod daughter of Bellona She is the Amazon Queen. She looks a lot like Reyna as beautiful, ,glossy black hair and black eyes,long lashes,and a scar in her forehead,She as her sister had the bearing of a swordswoman but stronger.Hylla use a black suit whit a golden belt.Reyna describe her sister as a "Camaleon" because she is always channging, they have similary personalities but Hylla seems more funny and chill.

Jason Grace[edit]

Jason Grace is a son of Jupiter, younger brother of Thalia Grace and a perspective character in the Heroes of Olympus series. He grew up at from Camp Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Greek Camp Half-Blood, where demigods born to the Olympians' Roman aspects receive their training. 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.

In The Lost Hero, Hera (Juno) kidnaps both Percy Jackson and Jason Grace, removes most of their memories, and leaves each where they will find or be found by their opposite camps. Hera hopes that this "exchange of leaders" will help the camps form an alliance and defeat the giants. In the rest of the book, Jason's memories begin to return to him as he undergoes 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's primary romantic interest is Piper McLean, but his earlier adventures with Reyna, which are not shown, are a major part of his life. Although he and Reyna were not expressly in a romantic relationship, they had completed quests together and made plans for future adventures. Similarly, his best friend in the books is Leo Valdez, but he refers to earlier friendships with Romans Dakota, Gwen and Hazel.

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.

Although Jason and Percy immediately recognize that it is best to work together, their relationship is not without antagonism. As Percy puts it, it is natural for two powerful demigods to wonder which of them is stronger.

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 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.

Jason is a swordfighter like Percy, though they have different fighting styles. Jason has some power over air currents and can almost fly "like a blond Superman." He can sense and control some air spirits and has, like Thalia, called down lightning. On one occasion, he and Percy together summon a hurricane in Charleston harbor, though both are very tired afterward.

  • Phorcys – A primordial Sea God and the brother of Keto. In The Mark of Athena, he and Keto run an aquarium in Georgia which contains a lot of rare sea monsters.

He is the father of Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Hera, Demeter, Hestia, Chiron and thus the grandfather of Percy, whom he attempts to recruit into the Titan army. He fights with a scythe with a six-foot-long magical blade that can harm both gods and mortals.[8] During the series, Kronos is initially trapped in Tartarus, but he eventually escapes to the point where he can possess Luke's body.

  • Koios - Lord of the North. In The House of Hades, Koios is briefly seen in Tartarus. He greets Bob/Iapetus, not realizing his memory loss, inadvertently reminding him of several events in his past. Koios assumes Iapetus has returned to the side of the Titans and tells Iapetus that he plans to complete the Titans' assault on Olympus and they, not the giants, will rule the world, with Gaea's eventual acquiescence. He mentions that his daughter Leto had been mistreated by Zeus after "she bore him those fine twins" (Apollo and Artemis).

After the defeat of Kronos, Oceanus escapes back to the depths of the ocean, but not before destroying much of Poseidon's palace.[10]
  • 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 believed that the Titans would win. Prometheus is sent to discuss a truce with Percy and Thalia during the Battle of Manhattan. He flees after Kronos's defeat, sending a list of excuses to Mount Olympus.[10]

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.
