Powers

Being the son of Hermes come withs its perks...and its faults, as most gifts do. Since birth, Calvin has always been an academically advanced child who practically breathed knowledge. A quick learner, it was in his blood and nature to soak up every piece of information he could get his hands on. With a photogenic memory, it is near impossible for 'Cal to ever overlook any miniscule detail whatsoever.A crafty kid who loved a challenge, Calvin easily self-taught himself through various disciplines and specifically became quite skilled in Creative Arts and Muses.

One of his more godly abilities is Calvin's extreme speed and agility which surpasses that of the norm. Without gawking human spectators about, it is quite a usual occurence to find Calvin whizzing about the house, his many cousins' only catching sight of a blur.
Calvin is also able to levitate a short distance off the ground, it's one of his more concealed powers as 'Cal doesn't regularly use it...but more than once his housemates have found casually lounging mid-air.





Weaknesses
|Isn't the most trustworthy or reliable person|
|Does not possess great willpower and usually finds himself caving in an argument|
|When taking in large quantities of information at one time, Calvin can suffer from awful migrains and sometimes even horrible seizures|
|Using his enhanced speed for long periods of time concludes in Calvin being exhausted and having to sleep for hours to regenerate|





Strengths
|Has a great judgement of direction and never gets lost|
|Calvin knows of all the secret passageways between worlds, allowing him to sneak about undetected|
|No door is ever closed to him, as 'Cal is the master of thieves and can pick any lock skillfully|
|Speed|
|Communication with the recently deceased|




A TINY PIECE OF HISTORY
"What do you want to know?"

Personality
Calvin's never taken anything seriously, it isn't his style as he's much more laid-back and carefree. He constantly annoys the others with his jests and pranks, which his cousins' have come to fear being the next target. With an easy smile and pretty-boy features, 'Cal has learned to charm his way out of any sort of trouble. Being a trickster means Calvin usually clashes with voices of authority...or people who have no sense of humour.
When it comes to his friends he's sorely loyal, but where his true loyalty lies is a whole other trivial matter as 'Cal can be quite deceiving.


History
His mother Sophia Howett had a promising international career as a ballerina until until she had a one-night-stand with the 'God of Lies'. Calvin was the product of that one-night, and his mother ended up with dashed dreams and a broken heart. She soon went on to marry Luke Hopskins, a young and cutthroat lawyer and little 'Cal finally had a daddy. Growing up he never wanted for anything...well apart from affection and acknowledgement. Calvin grew up in an cold enviroment, a stark contrast to his happy-go-lucky self. Surrounded by books, computers and the latest gadgets, Calvin's mind grew...as did his lonliness.
Sophia died when 'Cal was only six and his Stepfather took on full guardianship, though still never shed the little boy a second glance. When Calvin was twelve his world was flipped upside down when a strange gentleman named 'Pan' greeted him on one of the days he was skipping school. Intrigued by the odd fellow, Calvin followed him and soon learned that the man was a Satyr and the son of Hermes who he revealed to also be 'Cal's birth father. From that day forward Calvin spent his summers at Camp Half-Blood where he learned of his powers and met other demi-gods just like himself.
Calvin now works in IT, doing what he does best...though on the rare occasion he can get away with it, 'Cal likes to spice up life with some illegal activity now and again. Afterall hacking the Pentagon isn't a crime as long as they don't know about it.
