* CessationOfExistence: Gods who fade away will return to the Chaos AKA nothingness. ''The Burning Maze'', however, reveals that Helios manages to tether his will on Earth due to pure hatred. [[spoiler:Once Medea is killed, Apollo manages to convince him to move on.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Already has mentions since the first series, he becomes an important figure in ''The Burning Maze''.
* EvilIsBurningHot: While Helios is not really evil, his fire is described to be white-hot, pure, and merciless. His powers are also used by Medea, who is certainly evil.
* GreenEyedMonster: He resents Apollo for taking his place and dooming him into a life as a shadowy figure. [[spoiler:Or so it seems. In actuality, he became a shadowy figure because Medea restrained him from dissolving into Chaos]].

While Apollo can limit himself to only show the Sun's good side (warmth, life-giver), Helios embodies everything about it, including its dark side (distance and resentment).
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Before he ceased to exist, anyway. Apollo implies that he was an all-around good guy, being one of the few male Titans who sided with the Olympians during the Titanomachy. Now, he is so much filled with anger that the first thing he says to Apollo when the two meet after his cessation is [[spoiler: to kill his granddaughter.]]

---

* MindRape: Communicates with telepathic blasts, due to his aura of silence.
* SilentAntagonist: Generates a bubble of absolute soundlessness around himself. The Triumvirate use magic to amplify this effect to block demigodly communications.

* NiceGuy: The narration makes a point of mentioning that he's probably the only God that the crew has run into who was nothing but helpful and courteous, even making [[spoiler:the physician's cure]] for the crew of the ''Argo II'' when they came to him, no strings attached.

to:

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: He laments that eternal life only means that he'll never forget his pain.

Added DiffLines:

* BigEater: At least according to Apollo's rather gossipy internal monologue:
-->'''Apollo:''' You'll hear stories about the goddess of springtime being all sweetness and daffodils and nibbling on pomegranate seeds, but I'm telling you, that girl was frightening when she attacked a mound of pork spareribs.


* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: They're in no shape to defeat the giants because they're still recuperating from the last Titan war, with divine schizophrenia from their Greek and Roman sides as icing on the cake.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Many of the gods: Poseidon is one of the three most powerful gods in existence, and he walks around in a Hawaiian shirt and shorts; Dionysus likes playing Pac-Man and whines about being forbidden to drink wine and can only drink pop; and Apollo is the god of medicine, drives the sun chariot as a Maserati Spyder, and lets fifteen-year-old girls take it for a spin.



* HonestCorporateExecutive: Or CorruptCorporateExecutive in some cases. A lot of the gods run their disciplines like modern day businesses- Hermes has a postal service, Hephaestus has a TV station, and Iris lets demigods send emails through rainbows.
* InhumanlyBeautifulRace: Unless otherwise stated (like in Akhlys's case), or if the narration says they cross into UncannyValley despite their beauty, you can expect a god's preferred form will be extremely easy on the eyes.
* JerkassGods: Most of the gods at one point or another, but especially Zeus and Ares. Even the most sympathetically portrayed have their moments. A few, like Iris and Thanatos, are exceptions, however.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: With any demigod's mortal parent. The only major Olympians who do not have children are Hera/Juno, Hestia/Vesta, and Artemis/Diana.

* JerkassWoobie: A lot of the minor gods' problems, and a major reason why many of them ally with the Olympians' enemies, are because they are, well, minor. They have been enduring a low form racism for millennia, never being able to claim the glory the Twelve Olympians have. Until ''The Last Olympian'', they don't even have sanctuaries in Camp Half-Blood, forcing all of their children to herd together within the Hermes cabin as basically squatters. A major {{Aesop}} of the series is for the main characters, who are mostly children of the Twelve Olympians, to take plight and give them more respect and help their cause, as their divine parents are too arrogant to do anything with the situation.

* SplitPersonality: Between their Greek and Roman sides, although how bad it is tends to vary -- some of the major gods are so incapacitated they have to lay low in order to not inconvenience the world. Other gods, such as Aphrodite and Nemesis, are hardly affected because of their "universal" domains.

Child
[[folder:Helios/Sol]]
The Titan
of Zeus who ascended to Godhood as a minor god who guards the doors Sun and the son of Olympus. Previous owner Hyperion. He is the father of Percy's CoolSword.
Circe and Pasiphae and the grandfather of Medea. He had faded millennia ago, with Apollo succeeding him as the master of the Sun.


Added DiffLines:

* CessationOfExistence: Gods who fade away will return to the Chaos AKA nothingness. ''The Burning Maze'', however, reveals that Helios manages to tether his will on Earth due to pure hatred. [[spoiler:Once Medea is killed, Apollo manages to convince him to move on.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Already has mentions since the first series, he becomes an important figure in ''The Burning Maze''.
* EvilIsBurningHot: While Helios is not really evil, his fire is described to be white-hot, pure, and merciless. His powers are also used by Medea, who is certainly evil.
* GreenEyedMonster: He resents Apollo for taking his place and dooming him into a life as a shadowy figure. [[spoiler:Or so it seems. In actuality, he became a shadowy figure because Medea restrained him from dissolving into Chaos]].
* ThePowerOfHate: It's explicitly mentioned that he is able to escape succumbing to the Chaos due his extreme hatred of Apollo. [[spoiler:Or rather, Medea.]]
* ThePowerOfTheSun: It's in his name. Apollo describes that while he is merely a god who dabbles in the Sun, Helios personifies the Sun itself. While Apollo can limit himself to only show the Sun's good side (warmth, life-giver), Helios embodies everything about it, including its dark side (distance and resentment).
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Before he ceased to exist, anyway. Apollo implies that he was an all-around good guy, being one of the few male Titans who sided with the Olympians during the Titanomachy. Now, he is so much filled with anger that the first thing he says to Apollo when the two meet after his cessation is [[spoiler: to kill his granddaughter.]]
* WalkingWasteland: When Medea moves her grandfather's essence to the Labyrinth below Southern California, the area slowly turns into {{Mordor}}.
