We're not quite sure what these characters are in The Camp Half-Blood Series (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus and The Trials of Apollo) and unfortunately the Classical Mythology can't be trusted due to Rick Riordan's Artistic License.

Son of Neptune and Ceres, and the fastest horse on the planet.

  • Cluster F-Bomb: According to Percy, Arion has a pretty filthy mouth.
  • Cool Horse: The son of two Olympians, and as a result can "run like the wind over land and sea."
  • Eat Dirt, Cheap: Arion eats gold.
  • Jerkass: "I will trample you to death, silly Chinese Canadian baby man!"
  • Lamarck Was Right: The immortal son of two Olympians born a horse as he was conceived while they were shapeshifted into horses.
  • Tactful Translation: We never hear the cursing in full because Percy's the only one who can hear it. The one time we hear him from Percy's perspective, he's too tired to cuss.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: According to Percy.
  • Smug Super: He has an ego to match his top speed.
  • Super Speed: Arion is stated to be the fastest horse on the planet. This is apparently not an exaggeration since at one point he does 800 mph.

A sorceress or goddess who rules a island where she turns men into pigs.

  • Beauty Is Bad: Very beautiful, but very evil.
  • Does Not Like Men: To the point where she turns them into rodents and keeps them in cages.
  • Evil Mentor
    • Subverted, she would have been a evil mentor to Annabeth had she accepted her offer to be her apprentice.
    • Played straight with Reyna and Hylla though. They weren't named back in Sea of Monsters, but Percy finds out from Reyna in Son of Neptune that he and Annabeth are to blame for them each being in their current positions. Whether they're grateful or not... isn't entirely clear.
  • Karmic Transformation: She argues this is what the men turned into pigs are victim to.
  • Straw Feminist: To an absurd degree.
  • We Can Rule Together: Offers this to Annabeth in the second book. She refuses, of course.

The Golden Warrior. Son of Posiden and Medusa, brother of Pegasus and half-brother of Percy.

  • Ambiguously Human: He's born of gorgon blood and seafoam, which definitely indicates an inhuman nature. On the other hand, Greek mythology has never been bothered by things like "sense," so he might be human anyways.
  • Attention Whore: He became a pirate for the attention since his brother got all the attention.
  • Bounty Hunter: Though normally works as a pirate he comes after the crew of the Argo II since Gaea placed a bounty on them.
  • Don't Look at Me!: His face is never seen as he's always wearing a gorgon mask. When it's knocked off in his retreat he covers his face.
  • Irony: He wants a bigger legend but the lack of information about him is what makes him so dangerous.
  • Making a Splash: Implicitly, Percy tries to use his powers against him but has trouble because the water seems to be resisting.
  • Pirate: Openly admits to this and often targets ships in the mediterranean.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: His crew when Percy bluffed Mr. D was coming.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: He is the only character in the series that can defeat Percy when he's at the top of his game in a straight fight.

    Halcyon Green 
An elderly son of Apollo. He appears in The Diary of Luke Castellan, from The Demigod Diaries.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: To let Thalia and Luke escape his mansion.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Hal"
  • Seer: Being a son of Apollo granted him the ability to see the future. However, after he told a girl about her future death, Apollo cursed him by taking away his voice and locking him in his childhood home.
  • Tragic Keepsake: He kept the dagger from the girl he saved and passed it on to Luke (who would later pass it on to Annabeth).

    Other Titans 
There are considerably more Titans than are mentioned in the main series, but a lot of them get expounded upon, by none other than Percy himself, in Percy Jackson's Greek Gods. Since their day was before the rise of the Olympian gods, many of them have since faded into the background, with a few exceptions.

  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Theia, the Titan of gems and jewels. Percy thinks this is why she married Hyperion
  • Being Good Sucks: In addition to Prometheus up there, special mention goes to Rhea. Percy uses language similar to describing his own mother, in that she had the nicest sweetest personality of out of the Titans, which meant she got the worst luck, such as having Kronos fall for her and having him swallow her children.
  • Birds of a Feather: Tethys (rivers and streams) who marries Oceanus (the ocean). "Hey you like water? I like water too! We should totally go out!"
  • The Casanova: Helios, apparently. He has a tendency to frequent local watering holes to try and impress women.
  • The Ditz: Theia is, not too bright. Which is ironic considering she is the Titan of bright and shiny things.
  • Fortune Teller: Percy describes Phoebe rather like one.
  • Happily Married: Tethys and Oceanus, whom Hera tried to model her own marriage after.
  • Hot God: Several of them, but Rhea stands out again.
  • Photographic Memory: Mnemosyne, who remembers everything.
  • The Pollyanna: Phoebe. Name means "Bright" which was how she tried to see the world.
  • Psychic Static: Zeus first married Metis, Titan of deep thought... and then swallowed her because he feared their children would overthrow him. Metis eventually dissolved into pure, occasionally annoying thoughts in Zeus' mind.

Trainer of Roman heroes.

  • A Dog Named "Dog": Her name is the Latin word for "she-wolf".
  • Good Is Not Nice: She's very gruff and stern, and passes this on to her proteges.
  • Noble Wolf: Heroic but not nice.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: Lupa believes that experience is the best teacher — which is why she basically dumps her kids within fighting range of monsters to see how they do.
  • Team Dad: Female example. In contrast to Chiron, who's more hands-on, Lupa is more militaristic and indifferent to the demigods she trains — although she does care deeply about the wellbeing of Rome.

    The Labyrinth 
A maze created by Daedalus to hold the minotaur that has since spread throughout the entire world.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Averted, its AI functions perfectly. It just so happens that its function was to be deadly to everyone who enters it.
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Apollo spends a while trying to puzzle out just what kind of being it was.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: One of Apollo's guesses about its nature is that while it's required by the basest part of its being to be dangerous it doesn't really care about those who enter it.
  • Death Trap: Just about every kind imaginable can be found within it.
  • Eldritch Location: Time and space warp within its confines, it perpetually rearranges itself in ways physics shouldn't allow, it fills itself with deadly traps and monsters, and it can never truly be destroyed.
  • Genius Loci: Daedalus gave it artificial intelligence, so the entirety of its interior is deliberately crafted.
  • The Maze: The Labyrinth is perhaps the oldest example of this trope.
  • Sadist: It was designed to be deadly to those inside and Apollo theorizes that it may have been programmed to take joy in it.
    • Apollo speculates that this trait has been watered-down by the time he travels through the Labyrinth himself, giving off a more apathetic than hostile vibe.
  • Year Outside, Hour Inside: A few minutes in the Labyrinth is a few hours in the outside world.

A Scythian Dracaena formerly enslaved by The New Hercules. After being freed she joined Apollo and the others who defended The Waystation.
  • Balloon Belly: Naturally, for someone half-snake she gets one after swallowing a barbarian whole.
  • Burp of Finality: While trying to deny that she ate a barbarian, she burps in Apollo’s face, then admits playfully admits that "perhapsss" she did.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Dracaenae are a species of Cute Monster Girls, and Sssssarah is no exception.
  • Made a Slave: Like the others found in the arena, she was enslaved to be a gladiator.
  • Sssnake Talk: Just like other Scythian Dracaena. Though she takes it a step further by having her name spelled with five s'es.
  • Swallowed Whole: The swallower in this case, as appropriate for someone part snake. She aprently eats all her food whole and even eats barbarians whole.
  • Token Heroic Orc: She is the only dracaena in the series that doesn't seem to be evil. She even remains at the Waystation after defending it from Commodus.


How well does it match the trope?
