1The forces of Kronos of the ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' series. For the full list of characters, click [[Characters/TheCampHalfBloodSeries here.]]² ²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:Kronos/Saturn]]²!!!'''Played by''': Creator/RobertKnepper²²The King of the Titans and suitably the most powerful. He has domain over time and harvest.²²----²* AbusiveParents: He literally ate his children as soon as they were born because it was foretold that he was destined to be overcome by his own sons.²* AdaptationalSuperpowerChange: In this series, Kronos boasts control over the flow of time due to being erroneously merged with the primordial god of it, Chronos.²* AndIMustScream: He literally ''cannot'' die. The first time, he was chopped into bits and pitched into Tartarus. The second time, [[spoiler:his consciousness exploded and was spread so thinly across the world that there's little hope of it reassembling]].²* ArchnemesisDad: To many of the Olympians.²* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Became King of the Titans through being the most powerful, being the one who killed his father in the original mythology.²* BatmanGambit: Allowing the Fleece to be returned to Camp Half-Blood so [[spoiler:Thalia could be brought back to life, and he could count on her FatalFlaw to sway her to his side]] so he could have a chance to control the Great Prophecy. It fails.²* BigBad: Of the Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians series. His goal is to be resurrected, and the demigods and gods have to stop him because it would mean the fall of civilization. ²* BigNo: Lets one lose when [[spoiler:he's finally defeated]].²* TheChessmaster: Manipulates people and events to further his goal of reforming and taking over the world.²* CompleteImmortality: Like most divine beings in the series, Kronos simply cannot die. Period. Not even cutting him into numerous pieces will truly do the trick. [[spoiler:That said, after his essence gets scattered across the world, other characters theorize that he might never regain consciousness, let alone physcial body.]]²* CompositeCharacter: The book series makes the common mistake of morphing the Titan Cronus with the primordial god of time, Chronos. In the myths, they were two separate beings who did not share the same powers.²* DemonicPossession: Because Kronos never fully recovers from being mutilated, he can come into being only by possessing someone. ²* KarmicDeath: The first time around. Given that this mythology version where Kronos chopped Ouranos into pieces rather than merely castrating him, Kronos suffers the exact same fate done with the exact same weapon he used. ²* EldritchAbomination: Described as such.²* JumpedAtTheCall: Percy Jackson's Greek Gods says he was eager indeed when Gaea asked the Titans who will kill Ouranos.²* LeanAndMean: His original body is described as being far less impressive physically than his fellow Titans, but even back then he had an evil gleam in his eyes and was the only Titan who willing stepped up to the task of killing Ouranos.²* SadisticChoice: In the fifth book, Kronos frequently threatens to kill Percy's friends unless he surrenders to him.²* SealedEvilInACan: Initially, his remains are just in a particularly creepy sarcophagus that gets stronger every time a demigod forsakes the Olympians and joins his side. [[spoiler:Later, Luke graduates to being his Soul Jar]].²* SinisterScythe: His WeaponOfChoice.²* TimeMaster: Kronos seems particularly fond of slowing time around his opponents to a near stop. Percy Jackson's Greek Gods has Percy state that back when he was king of the titans, he liked to use his powers to ''speed up'' time for his victims, causing them to crumble to dust due to aging. (Notably, his powers do ''not'', in fact, include TimeTravel, despite being the Titan (and thus personification) of Time.) ²* WeCanRuleTogether: Offers this a bunch of times. Most of them are insincere.²* YellowEyesOfSneakiness: All the more identifiable considering that he possesses people to function. When he possesses [[spoiler: Luke]], for example, the latter's eyes turn from blue to gold.²* YouHaveFailedMe: Kronos decides to let Atlas rot due to his repeated failures.²[[/folder]]²²!!Demigods²[[folder:Luke Castellan]]²!!!'''Played by''': Jake Abel, Samuel Braun (young)²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luke_castellan_299x416.jpg]] ²²Son of Hermes and May Castellan. When he was an infant, his mother tried to become the new host for the Oracle of Delphi. It went horribly wrong. May [[GoMadFromTheRevelation went crazy]] [[MadOracle from visions of her son's eventual future]] and became TheOphelia, and spent Luke's childhood babbling at him about his horrible fate. He ran away and met up with Thalia and Annabeth; they eventually made it to Camp Half-Blood, but not before Thalia [[HeroicSacrifice died]]. Luke went on a failed quest and came back with [[GoodScarsEvilScars a scar]]. He is a major villain in the first series, second only to Kronos, attempting to destroy the gods for their manipulation and abuse towards him.²²----²* TheAce: Good looking, charismatic, a good fighter, and his cabin's counselor.²** BrokenAce: And by the time we meet him, he's jaded, unhappy, and desperately craves affection from his aloof father.²* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Percy.²* AntiVillain: Gradually revealed to be this as the series goes on and his more [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes redeeming qualities]] and [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds tragic backstory]] come to the surface.²* BrokenBird: RareMaleExample. His hatred of the gods stems from his own bitterness after being basically abandoned by his father his entire life.²* BelatedBackstory: Until the fifth book, all we know is that his dad sent him on the quest where he got his scar, and he hates him for it.²* BigBad: [[DragonInChief He's effectively this]] for the first two books, as [[GreaterScopeVillain Kronos]] is at that point SealedEvilInACan and none of the higher-ranking Titans show up until the third.²* BigBrotherMentor: To Percy in book one. Implied to have been one to Annabeth too. ²* BigManOnCampus: Seemed to be this before betraying the camp -- he was counselor of the Hermes cabin, attractive, relatively popular, and a BigBrotherMentor to Percy.²* CallingTheOldManOut: He's pretty pissed at Hermes, not gonna lie.²* TheChosenOne: [[spoiler: He is "the hero" described in the Great Prophecy, not Percy.]]²* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: No matter how he claims otherwise, [[spoiler:he keeps hurting Annabeth, the only camper he has protected up until his FaceHeelTurn. Including the time where he poisoned Thalia's tree, tricked Annabeth into taking the sky, and literally wounded her at the end of book five. He doesn't realize it until the last part]].²* CoolSword: Backbiter. [[spoiler: Doubly deadly due its being fashioned out of both celestial bronze and steel, meaning it can kill both mortals and gods.]]²* CryingWolf: [[spoiler:Before Kronos possessed him, he ran to Annabeth, begging her to run away with him. This was after he tricked her into taking the sky and then took her hostage. She obviously turned him down and it was probably the right decision at the time, because the boy cannot be trusted]].²* DarkMessiah: Definitely twisted and evil as well as basically Kronos's champion, but [[spoiler: eventually saves the world.]]²* DrivenToSuicide: For a good cause. See HeroicSacrifice below.²* DrivenToVillainy: His bitterness at his father and the treatment of those in the Hermes cabin drive him to betray the camp.²* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler: Reluctantly allows Kronos to possess him as the last resort for Kronos's resurrection.]]²* TheDragon: Kronos' right-hand demigod and primary agent. He also serves this role to Atlas during ''The Titan's Curse''.²* DyingAsYourself: [[spoiler: As Luke, not Kronos.]]²* FaceHeelTurn: Goes from friendly, if somewhat aloof, mentor character to Percy to one of the major antagonists in the series. [[spoiler:And back again, if only [[DyingAsYourself for a few moments]].]]²* FallenHero: After joining Kronos.²* ForWantOfANail: He and Percy are this to each other. They're both sweet, compassionate fighters who become highly admired by their colleagues. Both are proficient swordsmen, handsome, and both consider Annabeth to be one of the most important people in their lives. They even have similar [[InnerMonologue narrative voices]], as demonstrated by his first-person short story in ''The Demigod Diaries''. The divergence hits with their mothers. [[spoiler: Luke's mother was tragically driven insane when she attempted to channel the spirit of the Oracle of Delphi and spent most of his childhood babbling at him about [[SelfFulfillingProphecy his awful fate]], leaving him scared, resentful, and starved for affection. His anger towards the gods was only increased by a quest that left him scarred and mostly ignored by the gods, including his father. He lashes out towards the manipulation by trying to unseat them and almost brings about the end of the world.]] By contrast, Percy is closer to his mother than anyone, and it's heavily implied she taught him everything he knows about kindness, morality, and love.²* FreudianExcuse: Once you find out his backstory in ''The Last Olympian''. [[spoiler:His mother's kind of crazy and his father's distant, driving him to run away]].²%%GentlemanThief ²* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has a scar on the right side on his face and as the series progresses, it becomes more prominent. Percy states it looks fresh by the last book, [[NothingIsScarier though it's never explained why.]]²* TheHeavy: For the first four books in the series until [[BigBad Kronos]] [[SealedEvilInACan breaks free from his can]] [[spoiler:and takes possession of Luke's body]].²* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Started out on the good guys' side, but eventually his resentment against the Olympians drove him to Kronos's side.²* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Stabs himself in the side to save Olympus.]]²* HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler: Throws off Kronos' possession long enough to apologize to Annabeth and complete the above sacrifice.]]²* HoneyTrap: [[spoiler:For Silena; he seduced her and set her up as TheMole, a decision she later comes to regret.]]²%%* HumanMomNonhumanDad²* {{Hypocrite}}: Accuses the Olympians for their horrendous crimes, yet he sides with the Titans who are no different.²* ICannotSelfTerminate: [[spoiler:A special case, in that he can self terminate, he just needs Percy to give him a knife.]]²* IcyBlueEyes: Percy describes them as "piercing."²* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler:With Annabeth during ''The Last Olympian''.]]²* KickTheDog: ²** He framed Percy for stealing the lightning bolt and Hades's helm, even though Percy at the time was an InnocentBystander and an UnwittingPawn. Then he tried to kill Percy after the latter survived.²** [[spoiler:Tricking Annabeth into taking the sky and then using her as a hostage was not one of his finest moments]].²%%KnightTemplar²* LikeBrotherAndSister: With Annabeth, and Thalia to a degree. They're a little family for sure, but [[ShipTease sometimes he and Thalia come off more as parent substitutes to their little girl.]]²* LivingBodysuit: [[spoiler: To Kronos after the latter possesses him.]]²* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler: In the end, his love for Annabeth drove him to perform his HeroicSacrifice.]]²* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Luke having a shield to defend himself with is a major factor in his victory against Percy in ''The Sea of Monsters".²* MeaningfulName: A castellan is the noble tasked with defending a castle. [[spoiler:So who's the one who ultimately protects Olympus?]] And as noted on the main page, his name means "light" or "light-bringer". Which sounds pretty nice [[FallenAngel until]] you realize it means that because it's derived from ''Lucifer''.²* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: In ''The Last Olympian'', when he realizes [[spoiler:he's hurt Annabeth and broken his promise to her.]] It's the last straw in a larger revelation about exactly how much damage his spitefulness has caused. ²* PromotionToParent: For Annabeth when they were on the run.²* RageAgainstTheHeavens: He wants to resurrect Kronos in order to destroy the gods.²* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:Kills himself in order to defeat Kronos, who his body has been jacked by, and save the world.]]²* ShipTease: With Thalia in ''The Titan's Curse'' and ''The Diary of Luke Castellan.'' ²* SoulJar: For [[spoiler:Kronos.]]²* SupernaturalGoldEyes: [[spoiler: When possessed by Kronos]].²* TragicHero: He UsedToBeASweetKid, but his bitterness from being abandoned by his father Hermes drove him to betray his friends at Camp Half-Blood and plan to destroy the gods.²* UsedToBeASweetKid : Evident in his diary. [[TearJerker He sounds a lot like Percy.]]²* TheVamp: RareMaleExample. [[spoiler: Silena's confession in ''Olympian'']] features Rick trying as hard as he can to play this trope without his editors coming down on him. She's the only person who explicitly accuses him of it, but given his penchant for straightforward manipulation, it's not out of the question that it was a regular strategy for him.²* VillainHasAPoint: Luke despises the Olympians for being a bunch of psychopaths who use their children as slaves. He believes that they must be exterminated.²* WellDoneSonGuy: [[WhamLine "You said they cared about me!"]]²* WellIntentionedExtremist: At the end of the day, his main motivation is a desire for the half-blood population to be acknowledged by their parents, instead of used as pawns and then pushed aside. Problem is, he thought resurrecting an ObviouslyEvil primordial entity was a valid social justice movement. ²* WeUsedToBeFriends: He was popular and well-liked in the camp before his turn to evil, and this dynamic is especially pronounced in his interactions with Thalia and Annabeth (with whom he shares history) and Percy (who saw him as a BigBrotherMentor).²* WillingChanneler: Kronos coerces him into submitting to possession. ²* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: To the point when even the victims of his nefarious acts (Silena, Thalia, Annabeth) show compassion for him and want to help him. Even Percy, who out right resents him feels bad for the guy in the end.²* WorthyOpponent : To Percy²%%YouCantFightFate²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Ethan Nakamura]]²!!!'''Played by''': Danny Le Boyer²[[quoteright:299:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ethan_with_the_shield_299x416.jpeg]] ²²²Son of Nemesis, the goddess of revenge and balance, Ethan was one of the many residents of Cabin Eleven who went unclaimed or had no cabin of their own because their parents were minor gods. He promised his mother he would make a place on Olympus for the minor gods, and in exchange she took his eye. ²²----²* AntiVillain: He doesn't desire anything for himself. Instead, he wants to elevate his mother and other minor gods to be on the same level as the Olympians, after being sick of seeing them getting sidelined all the time and receiving no respect from everyone. This is a very, very honorable goal, yet the heroes (including Percy), who are mostly children of the Olympians, are very slow to empathize or catch this up. The only thing that stops him from becoming a DesignatedVillain is that the side he currently works for, Kronos, is AlwaysChaoticEvil.²* EyepatchOfPower: Wears one to cover his missing eye.²* EyeScream: His mother took his eye part of the promise that he would change Olympus for the better.²* FallenHero: As a former camper.²* FamousLastWords: "Deserve better... if only they just... had thrones..."²* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Starts out as a hero, then turns to Kronos's side, then [[spoiler:turns back to being a hero again at the last second in ''The Last Olympian'', resulting in his death]].²* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: When he tries to kill Kronos, Ethan's blade shatters and one of the pieces spears him.]]²%%IneffectualSympatheticVillain²* MasterSwordsman: While he eventually loses, he fights evenly with Percy in ''The Battle of the Labyrinth'' and duels Annabeth in ''The Last Olympian.''²* MookLieutenant: Kronos/[[spoiler:Luke's]] main demigod subordinate during ''The Last Olympian.''²* PrideBeforeAFall: His mother is the goddess that causes the "fall" part of this trope. Ethan himself follows in her footsteps.²* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: In ''The Last Olympian'', he changes sides at the last second when he realizes that Kronos doesn't build, only destroys, and tries to kill Kronos. Kronos, in turn, kills him for turning against him]].²* ScalesOfJustice: Ethan Nakamura's burial shroud has a set of scales on it. This is because Nemesis is his mother.²* SmallRoleBigImpact: While there are several other factors, Ethan's desperate goal to elevate his mother is basically what pushed Percy to [[spoiler: campaign for the rights of the minor gods at the end of the ''The Last Olympian'', something that is duly granted, thus granting 10 and more cabins to be constructed in Camp Half-Blood for ''The Heroes of Olympus'' series and beyond.]]²* StealthPun: He is blind in one eye. His goal is to bring justice for the minor gods. You could say...justice is blind. (Or, in this case, half blind.)²* TarotMotifs: 8th/11th, Justice. The card shows a blindfolded woman holding a sword and scales. Ethan has one eye missing and [[spoiler:his burial shroud is embroidered with crossed swords and a set of scales]].²* UngratefulBastard: [[spoiler: Despite Percy saving his life, Ethan pledges his loyalty to Kronos. This is the last demigod needed to resurrect Kronos.]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Chris Rodriguez]]²One of Luke's allies and a fellow son of Hermes. For related tropes, see [[Characters/TheCampHalfBloodSeriesCampHalfBlood here]].²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Luke's Spy]]²Luke's spy among the ranks of Camp Half-Blood. For related tropes, see [[Characters/TheCampHalfBloodSeriesCampHalfBlood here]].²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Alabaster C. Torrington]]²Demigod son of Hecate, who fought for the Titans in the last war. He shows up only in ''Son of Magic'', a short story at the end of ''The Demigod Diaries''.²²----²* AntiVillain: In the [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians first series]], he was one of the demigods working for Kronos. ²* ArmorPiercingQuestion: After Claymore asks what happens when we die, Alabaster asks him why after all his research he doesn't know.²* {{BFS}}: According to Claymore, his sword must weigh a hundred pounds.²* CainAndAbel: The Abel to Lamia's Cain.²* HumanMomNonhumanDad: Presumably inverted, since he's a demigod and his mother is the goddess of magic.²* WelcomeBackTraitor: Aveterted, as he can't go back to Camp Half-Blood.²[[/folder]]²²!!Titans²[[folder:In General]]²Tropes that apply to many of the titans.²²----²* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Justified, as anyone seeing them in their true forms would probably be crispy-fried in an instant.²* AscendedExtra: Several of the titans shown are hardly even known to the public.²* [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly Titans Need Prayer Badly]]: It's brought up several times that Helios and Selene, Titans of the Sun and Moon, faded away entirely after the Romans reassigned their domains to Apollo and Artemis.²* InhumanlyBeautifulRace: Unless otherwise stated or if the narration says they cross into UncannyValley despite their beauty, you can expect a titan's preferred form will be extremely easy on the eyes.²* [[JerkassGods Jerkass Titans]]: Just like most of the gods only in most cases worse.²* MayflyDecemberRomance: Any that have any demigod's (demititan?) are this with the mortal parents.²* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Many are from before ancient Greece.²* VoluntaryShapeshifting: All of them can change their appearance at will, and hence have "preferred" forms.²* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: Titans take different shapes due to the fact that their true forms will incinerate anyone who sees them as such.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Atlas]]²The Titan of Strength, nephew of Kronos, and father of the Hesperides and Calypso. For his role in the first Titanomachy, he was charged with holding up the sky.²----²* AndIMustScream: Has been holding up the sky for a very, ''very'' long time.²* ArchnemesisDad: [[spoiler:To Zoë]].²* ArcVillain: Of ''The Titan's Curse''.²* BladeOnAStick: Uses a spear during his fight with Percy, Artemis, and Zoe.²* TheBrute: Is the most physically strong of the Titans.²* EvilSoundsDeep: His voice is described as being very, ''very'' deep.²* GeniusBruiser: Despite being the Brute, he also is shown to be quite intelligent and a fairly good manipulator.²* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: The reason he likes to recruit Muggles; he feels like they are easy to corrupt, and as such make for good minions.²* KnightOfCerebus: The fight with him is the first one in the series where [[spoiler:a questmate dies.]]²* LargeAndInCharge: The General of Kronos' troops, and described as incredibly tall and large.²* OffingTheOffspring: [[spoiler:Does this to Zoë]].²* SealedEvilInACan: The sky itself is a fairly potent prison.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Hyperion]]²The Titan of Light.²----²* BuriedAlive: [[spoiler: How he is defeated in ''The Last Olympian''.]]²* CessationOfExistence: [[spoiler: Tartarus absorbs his and Krios' essences in ''The House of Hades''.]]²* TheDragon: Second-in-command to Kronos, is the only one fighting in the Battle of Manhattan with him, and is the second most powerful.²* ElementalPowers: He has [[PlayingWithFire fire]] and [[LightEmUp light]] powers.²* LightIsNotGood: The Titan of Light (and uses light and fire-based powers), but ''very'' evil.²* ThePowerOfTheSun: As the Titan of Light.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Krios]]²The Titan of Stars and Constellations.²----²* ButtMonkey: He thinks of himself this way.²* CessationOfExistence: [[spoiler: Absorbed by Tartarus in ''The House of Hades'']].²* TheDarkChick: Feels like his abilities are being OvershadowedByAwesome.²* TheResenter: To the other Titans.²* StarPower: Though the extent of his power is not known, since his battles are never described.²* VillainOfAnotherStory: ''The Lost Hero'' reveals he was off defending Mount Othrys [[spoiler: from the Romans]].²* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Before ''The Heroes of Olympus'' series is released, his fate is left hanging, as he is the only Titan to be introduced but not be faced by the heroes. ''The Lost Hero'' clears this up right away by [[spoiler: Jason claiming that he personally defeated Krios while the Romans were attacking Mount Othrys.]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Oceanus]]²The Titan of Oceans.²----²* AdaptationalVillainy: In the original myths, he one of the few Titans (other than Prometheus and his brother) explicitly stated ''not'' to take part in the Titanomachy. Poseidon takes notice of this and states this only proves how bad things really are, as Oceanus wouldn't have joined forces with Kronos if he didn't feel confident in him winning.²* HornedHumanoid: Has bull horns.²* MakingASplash: Part of his domain. He ''was'' the supreme ruler of the sea before Poseidon was born.²* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Mainly takes shape of a merman, though he does able to change into humanoid form.²* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After Kronos' defeat, Oceanus escapes back to the ocean. Why Poseidon doesn't pursue him is unknown, but they may rule different parts of the sea.²* TheSiege: Launches a siege against Atlantis in ''The Last Olympian''. [[spoiler: He manages to conquer it after Poseidon leaves to assist the battle against Typhon, but he releases it once Kronos is defeated.]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Prometheus]]²Titan of craftiness and forethought. Sided with the Olympians in the first war, but out of a desire for revenge on Zeus and thinking the Olympians cannot win switches sides to the Titans.²²----²* AdaptationalVillainy: Again, like Oceanus, a Titan who's on the gods' side in the first war is turning their back in favor of the Titans. Although it's pointed out he's at least partially doing it [[AndIMustScream out of revenge for Zeus chaining him to a rock and having a vulture eat his liver every day for centuries]].²* AffablyEvil: If one can call him evil.²* IFightForTheStrongestSide: He's foreseen that the Titan's will win the war and this is why he's on their side.²* IfMyCalculationsAreCorrect: Implied that part of his foreknowledge is his ability to calculate probability to predict the most likely outcome.²* KnowWhenToFoldEm: After Kronos's defeat, he went into hiding and sent a list of excuses to Zeus explaining his actions. According to Hermes, Zeus ''probably'' won't punish him, as long as he keeps his head down for the next few centuries or so.²* RevengeBeforeReason: One possible interpretation of his defection. He himself doesn't even deny he wants revenge when Percy brings it up.²* ScarsAreForever: Thousands of years after Hercules freed him he still has the scars from the vulture that tortured him every day during his punishment. Percy compares their appearance on his human-sized form like he was attacked by a ''very'' angry hamster.²* TheSmartGuy: Among the Titans who appear, he's the most intelligent and predicts the Olympians' loss this time.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Koios]]²Titan of the North and forethought. He was said to take part in the war but never appeared, so his tropes can be found [[Characters/TheCampHalfBloodSeriesForcesOfGaia here]].²[[/folder]]²²!!Gods²[[folder:Hecate/Trivia]]²Goddess (technically Titaness) of magic. For related tropes see [[Characters/TheCampHalfBloodSeriesMinorGods here]].²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Janus]]²[[{{Foreshadowing}} Roman]] god of choices.²----²* {{Foreshadowing}}: Janus is a Roman god. Among a world that's been so far established to be Greek through and through. Gee, wonder why is that...²* MultipleHeadCase: He has two faces, each of which has its own mind.²* SadisticChoice: His favorite kind.²* TwoFaced: He has a face on the left and right sides of his head.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Keto]]²Goddess of sea monsters.²----²* BrotherSisterIncest: Her husband is her brother, Phorcys.²* MonsterProgenitor: She gave birth to Ladon, the skolopendra, the gorgons, and the Grey Sisters. Her most notable child is Echidna, herself an infamous MonsterProgenitor, making Keto the proud grandmother to a whole host of nasties.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Melinoe]]²Goddess of ghosts.²----²* DeadPersonImpersonation: As the goddess of ghosts, she can take on the appearance of anyone who has died.²* {{Sadist}}: She sided with Kronos because Hades won't allow her to torment mortals during the day.²* TwoFaced: All the way down her body. One side is pale and bloodless, the other black and mummified.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Morpheus/Somnia]]²God of dreams.²----²* ConvenientComa: He can put people to sleep for months at a time if it suits him.²* TheFaceless: He has a face, but it's blurry and constantly shifting so no one can actually remember it.²* ForcedSleep: If he doesn't want you awake, you won't be.²* PsychicDreamsForEveryone: He's the one responsible.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Nemesis]]²Goddess of balance and vengeance.

Once he regenerates, he returns the favor by collecting the camp necklaces of the half-bloods he kills.²* FoeTossingCharge: His favored tactic.²* HalfHumanHybrid: Half human, half bull.²* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: How Percy kills him. [[spoiler: Both times.]]²* StarterVillain: He's the first supernatural being Percy encounters.²* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: Percy's taken several levels in badass by the time they fight again. As a result, the Minotaur is quickly reduced to dust.²* WalkingShirtlessScene: In his first appearance.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Agrius and Oreius]]²A pair of twins born from a union of human and bear.

He is calculating and puts on an air of sophistication at the start of the story but behaves nearly as bestially as his appearance by the end. ²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Nemean Lion]]²A lion with invulnerable skin first killed by Heracles.²----²* AttackItsWeakPoint: Only its skin is invulnerable, not the inside of its mouth. For its part, it's entire aware of this trope and tries to open its mouth and eyes as little as possible while fighting. ²* BattleTrophy: Its pelt is left behind after its death.²* NighInvulnerability: Its skin is completely impervious to harm.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Kelli]]²An empousai who first served in Kronos's army, but later revealed to have actually been serving Gaea.

For more on ''empousia'' go [[Characters/TheCampHalfBloodSeriesMonsters here]].²²----²* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Unfortunately it's implied to be how she gets her [[ToServeMan food]].²* TheCheerleader: Disguised as one.²* IcyBlueEyes: Only in her human form though.²* PomPomGirl: As part of her cheerleader disguise.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Kampê]]²Ancient jailer of the cyclopses and hundred-handed ones.²----²* TheDreaded: Briares is absolutely terrified of her.²* DualWielding: She dual wields scimitars.²* HybridMonster: She's some combination of gorgon, dragon, and centaur.²* LaserGuidedKarma: She's killed by one of her own former prisoners.²* PoisonedWeapons: One touch from her blades will make you shrivel into dust.²* WardensAreEvil: Just ask any of her prisoners.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Karkinos]]²A giant crab first sent by Hera against Heracles during his battle with the hydra.²----²* AttackItsWeakPoint: Its armor is nearly impenetrable, but like all crab it has a weak spot on its underbelly.²* GiantEnemyCrab: Natch.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Clazmonian Sow]]²A giant flying sow sent against the defenders of Long Island.²----²* AirborneMook: It's the flying equivalent of the Erymathian Boar.²* PinkMeansFeminine: It's female and bright pink.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Lydian Drakon]]²A giant drakon, fated to be killed by a child of Ares, that was sent against the defending forces of Long Island. ²----²* AlienBlood: It bleeds green.²* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: It's a two hundred foot long snake.²* BattleTrophy: Its skin is left behind after it dies.²* DeathGlare: Potent enough to paralyze anyone who makes eye contact.²* EyeScream: Percy stabs out one of its eyes.²* MakeMeWannaShout: Its roar shatters every window on the block.²* NighInvulnerability: Not a magical variety, it just has really thick armor.²* PlotArmor: A justified in-universe version. It's so dangerous because only a child of Ares can kill it, making any other attempt futile.²* SnakesAreSinister: It's a giant snake and a key part of one of Kronos's schemes.²* SuperSpit: It spits acidic poison.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Queen Sess]]²Queen of the Scythian Dracnae.²----²* KingMook: Queen actually.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Hellhounds]]²Monstrous hounds from the Underworld that serve many masters. For related tropes, see [[Characters/TheCampHalfBloodSeriesMonsters here]].² [[/folder]]²²[[folder:Scythian Dracnae]]²''Scythian dracanae'' (singular ''dracaena'') are women with a serpent's body in place of each leg.²----²* CuteMonsterGirl: When you get past the slit pupils and snake tail legs they are in fact rather beautiful.²* {{Mooks}}: Their role in Kronos's army.²* SillyWalk: It comes with having snakes for legs. They move like they're perpetually on skis.²* SnakeTalk: They talk like this. One is even named Sssssarah which is explicitly spelled with 5 s-es.²* TokenGoodTeamMate: In TrialsOfApollo we meet Sssssarah (yes with 5 s-es) who actually fights alongside the heroes and seems fairly nice.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Spartoi]]²Spartoi (singular spartus) are skeletal warriors created by planting the teeth of dragons and watering them with blood.²----²* ArmiesAreEvil: Their Mist disguises look like soldiers, fitting with Atlas's military motif.²* BattleBaton: Their preferred melee weapons.²* BloodMagic: Part of the ritual that creates them.²* ColorMotifs: Grey.²* EliteMooks: They're much more threatening than any of the other monster groups the heroes face.²* GlowingEyesOfDoom: The only patches of color on them are their glowing yellow eyes.²* LetsSplitUpGang: They split up to cover more ground.²* MugglesDoItBetter: Most of Kronos's warriors use weapons from the era of their birth. The spartoi use guns.²* NighInvulnerability: They're immune to the usual methods of monster killing and can only be destroyed by [[spoiler: a child of Hades.]]²* TheNoseKnows: Once they have a scent they can track their prey across a continent.²* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Unlike the skeletal warriors used by Hades they're their own species rather than animated remains, albeit one with strong ties to the underworld.²* PerpetualMotionMonster: They never tire in combat or on the hunt.²* PullingThemselvesTogether: If you smash them apart they'll just pull themselves together and keep coming.²* SuperPersistentPredator: They ''never'' give up once they have a target. The prey can put distance between them through a variety of mundane and magical means, but the spartoi will march after them until the gap is closed. The prey can hide behind magical barriers, but the spartoi will find a way through. In short, the hunt doesn't end without the death of the hunted of the hunters.²* {{Truesight}}: They can't be fooled by illusions or invisibility.²[[/folder]]² ²[[folder:Telekhines]]²The former blacksmiths of the gods, creators of Posiedon's trident and Kronos's scythe.²----²* AquaticMook: They have the best maneuverability in the water out of any of Kronos's forces.²* TheBlacksmith: For Kronos's army.²* TheDogBitesBack: They're bitter about being used and discarded by the gods so they sided with Kronos to overthrow them.²* KillItWithFire: They're fireproof, so a favored tactic of theirs is to throw lumps of molten metal at foes.²* MonstrousSeal: They look like a combination of seals, dogs, and humans.²* {{Mooks}}: Some of them show up as warriors during Kronos's assault on Long Island.²[[/folder]]² ²[[folder:Keres]]²Battlefield spirits of plague and famine.²----²* PoisonedWeapons: Their claws inflict plagues with but a scratch.²* WingedHumanoid: Their general appearance.²[[/folder]]²²!!Other²[[folder:Mortal Mercenaries]]²Ordinary humans enticed to serve those who would destroy them.²----²* BlackHelicopter: Their primary form of transport.²* BloodKnight: Atlas appreciates their violent tendencies.²* DrivenToMadness: Some of them are temporarily driven mad by Mr. D.²* {{Mooks}}: For Atlas.²* OnlyInItForTheMoney: They get paid and they follow orders. Justified, as they don't exactly know about the centuries long mythical conflict and as such can't really choose a cause.²* PrivateMilitaryContractors: Their line of work.²* TheUnfought: They mainly appear in support roles, while any that actually threaten the heroes are dealt with by others. Justified, as the heroes are all carrying weapons that couldn't harm mortals if they tried.²* WeakWilled: The Mist and other forms of magical mind control do away with petty moral concerns.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Typhon]]²Child of Gaia and Tartarus, one of the most dangerous beings to every walk the earth. While he served a tremendous role in Kronos's war plan he was not truly part of his army, so his tropes can be found [[Characters/TheCampHalfBloodSeriesMonsters here]].²[[/folder]]
