PERSONALITY::
Mellow || Kindhearted || Easygoing || Dopey

August is often found mellow and drowsy not only because he's a child of Hypnos and it's more than common to find them on the verge of sleep, but because of his narcolepsy. People often comment on how they like his 'chill attitude' or 'calming atmosphere' and while August enjoys the compliments, his calm and easygoingness isn't something that he just puts on to be perceived as cool, but rather, it's something that he cannot stop because it's simply just the exhaustion taking over. Due to this, he can also often be seen as a kind of dopey person, especially if you catch him just after he's awoken from one of his unexpected naps. Although that's not to say he's unintelligent, August is quite a high achiever, when he can focus on his work.

When he's not falling asleep in class or, well, anywhere else; August will most likely be found helping someone. He has a kind heart and doesn't hesitate to put other people's needs before his own. Besides his narcolepsy August doesn't feel as thought he has many problems and so likes to do things for others. While he is indeed carefree, don't get that mixed up with him being careless because August is the complete opposite, he would never intentionally put another person in harms way and if there's something dangerous that has to be done, August would rather do it himself than risk another person getting hurt.

Truthfully, August is just a good person to be around. He has such a relaxed aura that people generally come to him if they need help, or even just want some peace and quiet. That being said, August does enjoy joking around and has been known to play occasional pranks on friends (of course, they're all non-harmful, he doesn't feel like you need to hurt people physically or emotionally, to have fun).

LIKES::

Sleeping|| is of course top of August's list of likes - but what child of Hypnos could ever dislike sleep? Dreaming|| not only are August's dreams so vivid he often mixes them up with reality but while dreaming, he feels so close to his father. Smoking|| he's not particularly fond of the taste, but August loves the sense of calmness he gets after having a cigarette. Cats|| you just gotta love those little fuzzy purr-machines plus dogs are too Savoury foods|| sugar makes you hyper and so August would prefer to avoid it. Besides, what's nicer than something delicious and savoury when you're hungry? Sweets don't exactly fill you up.

DISLIKES::

Wasps|| nothing makes August break his cool faster. Being yelled at|| now August is a big fan of calm debates about things, but as soon as someone starts shouting at him, he's gone. Travel Sickness|| one day August hopes to travel the world and see all the famous monuments, however, he's slightly put off by the immense sickness he feels even on short journeys. Narcolepsy|| August has struggled with narcolepsy since childhood. While he adores sleeping, falling asleep at random times during the day annoys and often embarrasses him. Strenuous Exercise|| while August isn't completely lazy, and he's totally down for playing a couple games of soccer, there's no way you're gonna be seeing him running cross country.

FEARS::

Narcolepsy|| August fears his narcolepsy because he is afraid it will hinder him in the future, and he won't be able to do all of the travelling and sightseeing he so longs for. Being a disappointment|| if there's something August never wants to happen, it's disappointing his family. Not just Hypnos but his mother, stepfather and sister too. They show him so much affection and support that he couldn't bear letting them down.

FAMILY::

Mother || Monica Forêt || 48 || Even though Monica hid the fact that Hypnos was his father all those years, August could never bring himself to blame her and still trusts his mother very much. The pair have the closest bond in the family.

Step-Father || Adrian Forêt|| 50 || Adrian was always good to August, despite the fact he isn't his actually father, August definitely looks up to and admires him as such.

Half-Sister || Gabrielle Forêt || 14 ||Gabrielle - or as August calls her, Ellie - doesn't often give her big brother a moment of peace and quiet. She loves to run around and go outside, she's almost the opposite of August and yet they still have so much love for each other.

RELATIONSHIP WITH GODLY PARENT::

Although August grew up with Adrian as a father figure, it never felt quite the same. He knew that something was missing but he never realised what it was until he met Hypnos, his father. While he does not remember it August's first meeting with his father was not long after he had been born. Hypnos visited August one night, to see his new son. The meeting was brief and Hypnos said nothing, he just watched baby August squirm around in the crib, trying to reach up and cling onto the shadowy figure.

Hypnos next visited August when he was thirteen. His father appeared in August's dreams and told him everything about who he is, what it is that he does and most importantly, that he is August's father. Of course when he awoke August brushed it off as little more than a dream, but even years later, he can still remember every little detail of that encounter.

Since then, Hypnos has visited August once more in his dreams, on his fifteenth birthday, again August didn't speak about it with anyone else but found himself still slightly believing it, however much he told himself it was stupid. It wasn't until Hypnos finally physically visited August - just as he had done days after the boys birth - that August knew it was all true. Again, the encounter was brief but affectionate. While neither of them had actually had any contact with each other up until that point, August couldn't help hugging his father as soon as he realised it was really him. They didn't speak much but the one thing Hypnos did say was that if August ever needed him, he need only dream of him.

FAVORITE POWER::

Although August does often find humour in being able to slyly hypnotise others into doing something out of the ordinary, it is by no means his favourite power. That is, in fact, the ability to cast illusions. August doesn't exactly know why he loves it so much, it just brings him an immense amount of joy being able to have his family appear if he's lonely (of course, they aren't really there) or fall asleep deep within the heart of the woods, except from the comfort of his own bed.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬



Shyroe woke up, drooling on her desk. She suddenly realized that it was oreitation day, and she wasn't ready! She wiped a small piece of drool of her face then stumbled over to her closet. She grabbed the clothes she found and threw them on. Soon she brushed her hair, did her makeup and went to the kitchen. She quietly grabbed her Ipod and some headphones and started listening to a bunch of random bands such as her favorites; Fall Out Boy, Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, Panic! At The Disco, and Coldplay. First came Fall Out Boy's 'What A Catch Donnie.' She quietly hummed to the beat while making a bagel, trying not to awake her roommate, or if she was awake, oh well. Soon the bagels popped up, and she buttered them and put them into a container, and grabbed her coffee she had also been making.

She went back to her room and grabbed her phone to text August to see if he was awake. But out her window she saw a small glance of Kyle. She wondered how he could even get up that early to just walk around. Shyroe turned back to her phone and sighed.
To August;
'Hey Auggie. It's Shyroe. When do you think you'll be getting to the school gate? Cause I have a feeling I'll get lost in the school again.'

She sent the text and slumped down onto her bed. She grabbed a bagel and bit into it. Shyroe hated the taste of her own food, but she still dealt with it, and finished the first bagel. She decided to not eat the other half of the bagel she made, and look at her walls plastered with Marvel posters, and band posters. She even had small figurines clustered everywhere around her room. Her Quicksilver figurine from the Xmen universe caught her eye this time, she always thought his goggles were super awesome.

Shyroe decided to quickly text Kiren too, to see where she was.
To Kiren ;
'Hi Kiren! I was wondering where you are, I'm just about to go outside to see if I can find August.'

She got up, and grabbed her school bag, then her owl caught her eye, as she looked at her windowsill. "Hey Reedus." Shyroe said in a sweet voice, she reached out her hand to stroke her hand dow his back. Reedus flapped out his wings in a way of communcation, and Shyroe understood what he was trying to say. She took her hand off his back and let him fly away, to explore the school yard. Shyroe looked at the time and saw that she had spent 26 minutes in her dorm, and she had promised herself that she'd get outside today at 7: 30. Shyroe sighed and grabbed her bag.

She had soon exited her room, and grabbed her shoes, slipping them on then making her way out the dorm room. She walked down the stairs, still listening to her music, now the song 'Message Man' from Twenty One Pilots was playing. She kept her coffee with her as she sipped on it each time she made her way down the stairs. Soon she was on the first floor, and made her way out of the Girls Dormitory's. She made her way outside to slump herself under a tree to wait for August or Kiren.

As soon as Kyle sat beside her, her heart started to race, and her face lit up. "Well... uh... um... hi?..." He said, as Shyroe smiled brightly. But after he stopped, she knew she had to talk, and freaked out. "Oh! H-Hi.." She stuttered quietly and lifted her hand to wave it at Kyle in a friendly way. She then heard Fall Out Boy, and saw his headphones. "Y-You like Fall Out Boy? C-cool!" She asked and smiled.

She noticed then that they were both awkward, and he was just as shy as her. She let out a small chuckle, then suddenly realized he probably thought she was laughing at him in a bad way, and she started to blush. "I-I wasn;t laughing at you a-a mean way! I mean- Y-You're really Cut- I got to go.." Shyroe spat out, but before she got up, she wrote down on a small piece of paper her number so he could text her-She found her herself more comfortable texting then talking face to face. Then got up, with her bag, her Ipod, and coffee, and waved bye to him and started to jog off.

Soon Shyroe was in the Hallways, wondering where the Orientation was being held.

August had slept way past his alarm - which was hardly unusual. August often prefers having a few more hours sleep, snuggled under a mountain of blankets, than be on time. Although today was different, today of all days, August actually needed to be on time. It was the first day of a new school year back at Aeonis and he wasn't about to waste it sleeping, however inviting that thought may be. So when August eventually awoke, he was more than a little peeved that he'd managed to sleep through all three alarms he had set up around his room the previous night, in hopes that at least one would wake him.

Stumbling out of his room and into the shared living quarters, still rubbing sleep from his eyes, August takes in the silence of the small apartment-like dormitory, and realises that Lucca has probably already left. He's always been an early riser - or at least, earlier to rise than August, which wasn't particularly difficult.

After placing some bread in the toaster, August decided that while Lucca may no longer be here, boxers probably aren't the best clothes to be wearing, just incase Shyroe or somebody comes over. Heading back to his bedroom, August grabs a pair of jeans and a random, hopefully clean, t-shirt. He was never a big fan of the washing machine, preferring to wear all the clean clothes he owns before then washing everything. Which always leaves him with nothing good to wear and, of course, today was no different. August often wishes there was a God or Goddess of clean clothes who he could visit and would just zap his clothes clean again. There was always Hygieia, Goddess of Hygiene, but asking the Headmaster's daughter to clean his clothes seemed like a bad idea to August, unless he wanted to be expelled. Throwing on the haphazard outfit, August walks into the bathroom to splash some water on his face, he felt as though he were still half asleep, which typically he wouldn't mind because August almost always is half dreaming, half awake, but today he felt as though he needed to be at least a little alert.

The toaster pings just in time and August walks back to the kitchen; as he goes to grab the butter from the fridge, August hears the familiar buzz of his phone, vibrating on the counter beside him. With the butter in one hand, he leans over and picks up his rather outdated cellphone. If it worked perfectly well, what was the point in getting a new one? Reading over Shyroe's text. August smiles slightly at her admittance that she'd probably get lost. Despite being at the school for almost as long as August had, his sister always managed to become distracted and then lose herself in the large school grounds. August, on the other hand, while still a dreamer with his head often in the clouds, has become familiar enough with Aeonis that he no longer needs a guide to show him where to go. And so, he has seemingly become Shyroe's.

[ To : Shy ]
Wait for me there, I'll come and meet you :)


Shoving his phone into his jeans pocket so that he doesn't forget it, August then goes back to what he was originally doing. wait, what was I doing? looking down at the butter in his hand, now soft from the heat of August's palm, he remembers. "Breakfast!" August accidentally calls out, triumphant at having remembered. I'm glad Lucca wasn't here for that weird outburst.

After tucking into the incredibly buttery toast, August places his plate into the sink for him to wash up after classes, he was always putting off washing up and tidying, and August's excuse for today was - I really need to make sure Shyroe doesn't get lost. Despite her having lots of friends that could easily help her. Wiping a few crumbs from his t-shirt and then dirtying himself again by smudging butter from his fingers onto his jeans August was finally ready to go. Shyroe was waiting at the School Gate for him, so grabbing his rucksack and denim jacket, August heads out of the Male Dormitories.

Eventually August arrived by the gates, the walk there had been good and the weather was fairly pleasant and he didn't particularly need his jacket but there was still a gentle breeze to keep him cool. Generally August enjoys colder climates because heat makes him even drowsier than he already does, so it was on days like today that August was his happiest. Noticing that Shyroe had either not reached the gate yet, or had left without him [which would probably result in her getting lost again] August decides to wait for a couple minutes before heading inside.

It was pushing twenty minutes before August realised that Shyroe wasn't going to turn up. With a small sigh, he assumed that his sister had stumbled into Kiren or one of her other friends and had forgotten all about meeting him; August didn't mind but now he was a little lost on where to go.

Reaching for his phone, August fishes it out of his jeans pocket and checks for any messages, before sending some out himself,

[ to : shy ]
forget something little sis? It's fine, I'll see you later.

[ to : mandy ]
my little sister just ditched me, is that sad? Please say I'm not a total loser :-(


After hitting send on those two messages, a faint rumbling noise emits from August's stomach. Despite having just had a bagel, he was still hungry. And so August's decision was made for him - He was off to the cafeteria for a second breakfast. Something that wasn't often uncommon for August. He'd usually have a small meal as soon as he woke, and another in the school cafeteria, not just for the food but also so that he might have the chance of seeing some friends before the start of the first school day back.

The cafeteria was only a brief walk away from where August had been stood by the school gate, so he arrived at the building shortly and was met with the most divine smell. People were clustered around the dining hall, plates full with all manner of delicious breakfast foods. August had found himself in the cafeteria right when breakfast was in full swing and it was packed. Grabbing a bowl and filling it up with a load of fresh fruit, August peers around the room for somewhere to sit.

Noticing a few empty seats on a table where Marilyn, Tessa and Mark sat, August makes a beeline for the trio. Despite only being casual friends with Tessa, August knew Marilyn and Mark well so assumed they wouldn't mind him butting in on their conversation. It wasn't until after he had greeted everyone with a cheery "Hello," and sat down that August noticed Tessa's slightly forlorn expression. "Sorry, am I interrupting something?" He asks them as a group before turning to Mark and frowning ever so slightly in a 'what happened' kind of way.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬



Shyroe was walking around in the hallways trying to remember where the cafeteria is, when she got a text.

[From Kiren:]
I'll meet up with you in orientation, we can do something after! Hang out? Have some fun maybe with friends? See you later my lovely love! :)


[To Kiren:]
Okie doke! I'll see you there! I'm currently heading to the Cafeteria.


As Shyroe sent the message she noticed a map of the school and stumbled over to it and looked over it sleepily. She soon found where the Cafeteria was, and headed that way, deciding to get a muffin, or something like a baked good that might cheer her up. But she was still really happy with her meet up with Kyle, she almost got out of her shell to talk to him normally. Soon her phone buzzed again and she checked and saw a text from August.

[From Auggie:]
forget something little sis? It's fine, I'll see you later.


Once Shyroe read the text she realized that she had promised to meet him at the gate, but she was to hyped up with Kyle talking to her that she stumbled into the school.

[To Auggie:]
:O I'm so sorry! I had a run in with Kyle and I freaked out, and, and! I'm soo SORRY!


Shyroe typed frantically as she finally made it to the Cafeteria. It was humongous, and in all honesty scared the living day lights out of Shyroe. She got in the lineup to gets some muffins- Looking around for August. The line moved quickly and soon Shyroe had to order with out messing up her words. "H-Hello! I'd l-like a.. Muffin! Please.. Could I have the blueberry one?" She asked awkwardly as the person nodded, but stared at her in a way she didn't like. The person gave her a muffin and she walked around looking for August.

Soon she spotted him and rushed over to greet him, when she realized there was other people there with him. She sat down beside August quietly and poked him. "H-Hi.." She stuttered quietly, giving a small wave to be polite. Shyroe only recognized Tessa from a class she was once in with her, but she still couldn't have a normal chat like she can with Kiren. The rest of them she didn't recognize, so she hid her face while eating her muffin.

Naveen looked to his younger brother, waiting and wondering if he would see a reaction. He watched as Jack seemed to lose the pep in his step. Naveen nodded, and looked down to Cody. Few people had a good relationship with their godly parent. Naveen had a semi okay one. She woud make appeareances when Naveen was entirely alone on camping trips that his father abandons him on. That happened more often than Naveen would have liked.

Naveen looked back up to Jack and might have winced at Jack's laugh if Naveen was different. The way he was, he held sympathy, but not the kind someone would have when they think someone else is pathetic. Naveen has sympathy for Jack because he remembered how he used to feel about their mother. He still tolerated her and was glad when she said hi, but she was not their mother.

As Jack spoke, Naveen observed and listened. He didn't dare speak until Jack was done. Naveen rarely spoke without being directly spoken to, but he felt certain circumstances were exceptions.


When Jack was done, Naveen spoke to him softly. "Jack, you done with the language?" Naveen asked like the older brother he was. He hated inappropriate language and few students actually cursed in his class as they knew he called them out on it in front of everyone.

He then looked down at his dirty dishes before looking back up at Jack and speaking softly. "Jackie, I say she gave it to me because I studied and graduated early. Perhaps if you ask me in a less public place I'll tell you what was going on around the time I got my doctorate. And I got my doctorate because I wanted to help people, not because I wanted to have Artemis notice me. Besides, bitterness does not suit you Jack, we all have plenty to be bitter about," Naveen stated simply, giving a hint of bitterness in his tone towards the end but leaving it at that. Immediately the bitterness was gone and his face was more like a big brother talking to a little brother.

"Really, we are more similar than just being the children of the gods Jack. If you ever want or need help or begin to lose faith, come find me," Naveen stated simply before standing. He gave a wink before leaving Jack at the picnic table, making a clicking noise so Cody would know he was leaving. The young pup jumped after Naveen as Naveen walked towards the faculty building.

He had spoken so much! But he was there for his students, and other demigods. His younger half siblings especially.

Naveen walked into the faculty building and wrinkled his nose slightly. He couldn't stand being official. He was wearing sweatpants for crying out loud. He walked into his office, one on the first floor that had a sliding door Naveen had installed. He liked that he could open it and sit on a chair he hat outside. Cody had a little doggie bed in Naveen's office and immediately went there.

Naveen spotted a little bag on his "desk" which was really just a coffee table. Desks were stupid. Instead, Naveen had a couch and a coffee table and a side table with the coffee table serving as his desk. It worked for him. He smiled at the goodies before leaving Cody to fine June.

He found her, and Terry, and Priscilla all in June's office. Naveen froze slightly at the crowd before shrugging inwardly and stepping up to the door. Thanking people was allowed in his repertoire of reasons to speak.

"Thank you June," He stated with a smile and a nod as he gave little waves to the others in the room. He gave one final smile before moving to leave, not really wanting to have to make his own conversation starter to have to stay. He wouldn't really mind them asking him to join, but that was equal with him sitting outside and practicing knife throwing.

Tess looked up as August sat down. She shrugged, her face not happy still but she sat up at least. She pulled her invention project back, working on that again to avoid feeling like there was a lot of people. She liked that everyone was near her, that she was getting attention, but she hated that it was only because they seemed to think that she was upset. Why couldn't people give her attention just because she was Tessa?

Tess again attempted to fit the fingers into the mechanical hand but failed. Then another person sat down. She felt her shoulders hunch as she wasn't sure what to do. She found that the piece finally fit but that she wasn't sure what to do with so many people.

She wanted to escape and looked to Marilyn to see if she would mind. If it had been people she was close to, like Otter and Marilyn and Hugo and Priya, that would have been different, minus Hugo since he made her nervous no matter where he was.

"Boys are so... infuriating. And I wish they could pick up on how girls feel but at the same time if they did then he would know how I feel and then everything would be so screwed up because he'd be like 'Oh, Tessa, how could I like a small little blonde like you who is socially awkward for the most part and always has grease on your face?'" Mark shrugged his shoulders before giving her forearm a light punch, teasingly.
"That's why I only date men." He took a bite of his egg and toast, and then thought about what she said. "Wait what guy is this?" He looked at both Marilyn and Tessa, his mouth was only semi full so he let the food fall to the front of his mouth so as the muffling of his voice wasn't so bad. "I'm pretty sure I've heard a few... complimentary whispers about you, here and there." He gave her a wink as he chewed his food. "Also... You're in a school with some of the most talented alchemists and love witches around, I'm sure one of the Hecate or Aphrodite kids can help you out if you wanna cheat." He then pursed his lips and looked off to the side. "Okay, maybe I not as good with the advice thing as I thought."

"Do I have any grease on my face?" Mark made a face which implied he thought she was being ridiculous, but not in a serious way and shook his head, this time his mouth was full and to speak would not being a pretty sight and wouldn't be coherent. Tessa then pluck the phone from Marilyn's hands and slide it across the table to Mark, who swallowed his food and whipped his hands on his jeans, before picking it up and reading the message.

Mark looked at Tessa with a slight smile, "Tessa you've nothing to worry about," He looked at the contact name along the top of the message. "Just tell him it's you and how you got the number..." He then paused for a moment and then looked at her. "If it's like a way you're ashamed of, just say I gave it to you and if he asks why just say something like 'Oh you know Mark and his phone, if you can't reach him you better try reaching one of his friends'." He gave a playful shrug and flashed her smile before taking another bite of his egg sandwich.
"Am I being too stressed? Why am I talking so much?" Mark's smile faultered as her head met the table again.
"Hey, we all get like this when we text people we like, right Mari?" He gave her a nudge with his foot and then a quick glance, indicating he wanted her to agree with him, he knew not everyone did it but he definitely did and knew Tessa would feel better if she wasn't being like a one in a thousand who stress over people not texting them back.

Mark didn't even notice August sit down, he was rather caught up in the discussion at hand, and when he spoke up Mark turned to look at him with a look of surprise. "Hello, Sorry, am I interrupting something?" Mark shook his head with a smile.
"Awk no, you're grand." Mark blushed as he heard his own extremely belfast accent, his eyes widen in disbelief at how his accent broke into the most horrible accent ever. "Sorry." He apologised for his accent as he regained some control over his accent and made it a more refined and understandable, or as people called it back home, posh, accent. Mark caught August's expression and mouthed 'later' to him, before noticing Shyroe sit next to him, Mark had never really engaged with the girl but he was plenty friendly with everyone so he waved at her.
"Hey." His voice was soft and his smile welcoming, he'd heard she could be pretty shy so didn't want to be intimidating, not that he was, no one was ever scared of him, he lightly chuckled to himself at the thought of someone finding him intimidating, but when he realised he was in coming he blushed and tried to recompose himself.
