D E M E A N O R


h e i g h t x // x6'0"

w e i g h t x // x161 lbs

h a i r x // xDimitri has night black hair that he keeps shaved on both sides of his head. He lets the top long, sweeping it to the left side normally. It's usually a mess since he doesn't like to use gel in his hair. He keeps a well maintained five o'clock that he tries to keep on the same length as the side of his head.

e y e s x // xWhile his eyes aren't his best feature, they are one of the most noticeable. A cold grey color that just seems to look into your soul. He's been told his gaze is unsettling, softening only when he smiles.

o d d i t i e s x // xDimitri has plenty of small scars from past injuries, one being right above his right eyebrow. He has a nasty one on his right calf that he doesn't like to talk about. He's been contemplating future piercings or tattoos, but hasn't had the money to be able to get one.

a p p e a r a n c e x // xDimitri often appears like the typical bad boy: bored expression, tall, and dark. His olive skin coloring and exotic appearance only compliment his appearance. His attractive appearance is often overlooked by the general population. Dimitri has a lean frame with little muscle which he gains from his morning runs. His clothing often looks well used and old. Dominic doesn't care for having the latest clothes. If his clothes fit and don't have too many holes then he sees no need to get new clothes. Dimitri is unaware of his good looks, not sure why it's something worth mentioning.

P E R S O N A L I T Y
xxxxβ€’ x Emotionless x β€’ x Peaceful x β€’ x Negative x β€’ x Friendly x β€’


Despite being a child of Demeter, Dimitri's face and personality lacks diversity in emotions. He doesn't show a lot of emotion in his everyday life. Due to his father teaching him his emotions affect his abilities, he represses his feelings. His morning runs act as a way to get any leftover feelings out. The other campers often question how he can be so friendly yet lack any feelings. It isn't that he doesn't experience emotions, he just doesn't let them control him. He rules by logical and makes choices based on the probability it will succeed or fail, not how it makes him feel.

A man who experiences chaos often craves peace that man is Dimitri. Dimitri despises drama and any kind of conflict. It causes him to choose sides and either way he'll be hurting another person. Conflict also affects his powers since they are controlled by his emotions. Dimitri acts like the peacemaker of the camp since there is plenty of turmoil bubbling. He likes to know the campers feel happy and safe in this new environment and that they have no fears of what may come. While Dimitri tries to remain peaceful and neutral, if peace at the camp is threatened, Dimitri will do anything to make things peaceful again. He's not afraid to use force if it means keeping the peace. He doesn't like using force, but isn't afraid to use it if necessary.

Dimitri isn't all sunshine and happiness, which you wouldn't expect of a child of the goddess of the harvest. He's seen and experienced the negatives of the human world and has been a cause too. His view of the world remains mostly negative, though he's seen the positive sides of humanity. He goes into any situation considering all the bad sides of the situation and how he can fix it. He voices his opinion when he know the bad sides are being ignored, but will stay out of it otherwise. Bad things happen when he's involved so he prefers to keep away.

Regardless of his negative thoughts and emotionless attitude, Dimitri still remains friendly. He enjoys being surrounded by other people and talking to the other campers. Companionship is still something he longs for so he enjoys finding it in others. He takes his role as one of the older campers very seriously, wanting to be a guide to the younger ones. He remembers being scared and alone if an unfamiliar place and doesn't want any of the new campers to feel the same. His kind and friendly moments tend to confuse the campers since he can also be unemotional and pessimistic. Dimitri wants to make the best of his time at camp and tries to do the same for everyone else.

H I S T O R Y


Unlike most of the other demigods, Dimitri was always aware of his parentage and what he was. Worship of the Greek gods began to die out, but the Costas family always believed. The farming family prayed the most to their beloved goddess of the harvest. Demeter found favor in this family, blessing them with a bountiful harvest. The youngest of the Costas family, Alexius Costas treated Demeter with the most reverence. He would visit her temple every day, bringing her offerings and multiple prayers. Demeter loved the human, choosing him to be the father of child. Thus, Dimitri was born, named in honor of his mother.

Demeter was one of the more devoted parents to her children. She made seasonal visits when it was time to harvest the crops, wanting to check in on her 'seedling.' She would only spend a day, but it was felt like a month in Dimitri's eyes. When she wasn't around, his father raised him. As Alexius worked to maintain the family's farm and raise Dimitri, he did little to hide his son's nature from him. He told young Dimitri stories of his mother and past Greek myths. While Alexius regarded his son as a gift, he knew misfortune would follow his son's life; it was only natural for children of the gods. The family's farm was far enough away from the major cities so it was easy to hide when Dimitri's powers flared up, but it was close enough that Dimitri didn't feel so isolated from the outside world. Dimitri's power revealed themselves when he was young. Seeing that his son's powers reflected his emotions, Alexius tried his best to teach his son how to control, or hide, his emotions so his powers would be easier to control. He had to resort to telling Dimitri he was dangerous and was capable of hurting many people. All of this before he was ten.

The Costas family fell into financial hardship on Dimitri's tenth birthday. Looking for ways to pay their debt, Alexius began to borrow money from loan sharks. One particular shark was not happy Alexius hadn't been keeping up with his payments. Unaware of the child in the household, an argument between Alexius and the shark turned violent. Hiding in a closet, Dimitri made himself known when he heard a gunshot, finding his father on the ground clutching his chest. Filled with anger and fear the gunman began to choke, not finding air. Dimitri let him die, hurry to his father. Find his father dead, sadness and anger began to take over. Without his knowledge, a powerful tornado began to roar outside, destroying everything around. Dimitri didn't realize until it was too late what he had done. His family home and the land was destroyed except Dimitri and his father. Digging his father a grave on the family land, Dimitri held a funeral for the two of them before boarding a ferry to the mainland. He didn't want to stay in a place with such painful memories.

Now an orphan, Dimitri spent most of his life out in the forest. He didn't need to worry about food with his abilities and any other necessities he needed he learned to make it from natural resources or would work odd jobs to earn money. He never tried to reach out to his mother. Dimitri feared her reaction about the life he took and destruction he caused. While he regretted destroying his homeland, he didn't regret killing his father's murderer. It was necessary in his mind. He was glad he did it. Dimitri spent his free time getting better control on his powers, not wanting to cause any more disasters. He discovered new abilities and mastered his control of air and plants.

At fifteen, life became lonely for the wanderer. He knew allowing another person into his life could end negatively, but he longed for companionship. He found said companion in a girl he found in the forest. The girl, around his age, was hanging a noose from a tree branch. She was startled seeing another person in the woods behind her house. Dimitri questioned her about the noose and his heart broke at her story. The girl, Callie, was being abused by her parents, tiring of the abuse she decided to end her life. Dimitri wanted to help the girl and offered to take her away. She agreed, but worried her parents would come after them. Dimitri promised to take care of that too. The two made a plan for Callie to pack a bag and they would disappear together. She snuck Dimitri in her house and they would sneak out of her window. Her parents caught them, but before they could harm either of them, they began to choke. Callie closed her eyes, but Dimitri only stared, letting the two adults asphyxiate. A part of him knew he didn't have to kill them, but they deserved to die. After the two died, Dimitri looked to Callie, promising he wouldn't let anyone hurt her. Surprisingly, Callie trusted him and the two left.

The young couple settled in Thessaloniki, Greece. With Callie's skills in the kitchen and Dimitri's power to manipulate plants, she found work as a cook and Dimitri sold produce. The two rented a small cottage, slightly away from the city to still have some privacy. The couple lived happily, never worrying about anything other than normal things like bills and what to eat. Dimitri still hoped his mother gave up on him or assumed him dead. Alas, neither was true. On his twenty first birthday, Demeter appeared to her son while him and his girlfriend while they were sleeping. Sneaking off to speak to her privately, Dimitri desperately begged to be left in peace with his girlfriend. In response, Demeter began to dissuade her son from this idea. She reminded him of how humans would feel if they found out what he was like and that they would try to hurt him, or Callie. Dimitri shook at the fear of causing harm to someone he cared for. Not wanting any harm to come to the woman he loved, he agreed as long as his mother promised to protect and watch over Callie. She agreed. Leaving a note, Dimitri left for Camp Athens. Currently, he acts as a big brother to the younger campers. He's aware of the history of this camp yet he does not fear. All he wants is his mother to keep her promise.

Image Alex had never been to one single party before she came to Camp Athens. Their mother never allowed her to leave the house. Last years had been a blast, but this year was going to be different. Alex sat quietly as her brother took the chair across from her. "Are you okay?" He watched her as she managed to turn her attention to him. "..don't tell me it's nothing. When some of the campers left for the year, others stayed here. You didn't. You left me. Where did you go?"

Alex shook her head. "I'm fine. This isn't about when I left. Then, I just needed to be by myself."

"You know it's dangerous out there. Especially by yourself. Has Mason said something to you again? is that why you left?"
"No."
"Okay, so what's wrong now? Did someone else say something to you?"
"No!" she snapped.
"Al..."
Image "Just leave it alone, okay? Don't ask me any more questions." she stood up angrily. "Please." she added. It wasn't like her to shut him off without talking to him. He nodded once, his eyes looking down as he did. She gave him a glare before walking silently passed him. Maybe she shouldn't have come back to camp this year since everyone already thought she was a murderer. No one would possibly miss her, would they? Everything in her life had already turned upside down because of a stupid feud between two Gods. They just couldn't let things stay in the past.

Image He looked up, watching her head into her room. Hopefully, the party would make her feel better. Being around Duke and Wes always brought a smile to her face. Especially Duke. Oh, Ajax had noticed the way his little sister looked at his best friend. Was she acting like this because of him? Duke had recently found out about his little sister, and Alex had seen them together a couple of times without knowing who she is. Was she jealous? the corners of Ajax's lips began to lift upwards, forming a large smile as he looked away and hung his head. Laughing. He had never known her to be jealous, not even once, or she just managed to hide it well. Daniel had a new girl around him before he passed, but Alex didn't seem to batter an eye. He could go in there and tell her about Duke's sister, but maybe it would be way more entertaining for her to find out from Duke himself.

Ajax headed out the second he was dressed, but first grabbing his rucksack which sat near the front door. He decided to wear something casual: Party Outfit. As promised, he arrived a bit early with the music he had downloaded the night before on his computer. It was all taking place down near the beach again where a large campfire was sitting in the middle ready to be lit. Around it at a good safe distance sat four large log benches for everyone to chill out around the flames. The staff members were the ones hosting it all, so they were cooking on the BBQ tonight. They had containers filled with ice where the beer bottles chilled, and quite the buffet on a long table so people could help themselves to sandwiches, pizza, sausage rolls and every other party food displayed. The BBQ would be serving burgers and hot dogs with or without onions. A large variety for everyone to say the least.

____________________________________________

Today was the night! Adrianna had been counting down the days till tonight's bonfire. Every minute at camp seemed to be filled with training and making connections and allies and junk, but tonight was the night she could be free. It wasn't like this was her first party, but a party among fellow demigods had to be different than a regular human party. She took care of her skin care regime in the shower. The Poseidon kids were so lucky they didn't need to worry about drying their hair, something she deeply envied on days like today. Her shower routine could be long, but every step helped to keep a face like her looking its best. Beautification can be fun too, although some girls at this camp would disagree. 'Tonight is going to be fun!' she thought as she aimlessly walked throughout the Hera children cabin.

Next, and most importantly, came her outfit. She needed her leading fashion consultant on the case! "MAAATTTYYY! Help me choose my outfit!" Mateo was already her best friend and favorite person at camp. He is also her half-brother which only strengthened her feelings towards him. He understood her in ways the others didn't. Plus, the whole lying thing wasn't a thing with them. He is the only person she's ever completely honest with. All of her childhood, Adrianna wished for a sibling and it only took eighteen years to finally get her wish. The two's favorite thing to talk about was clothes so playing dress up together for a party was more sibling bonding time! "I'm thinking black and maroon for my colors, maybe throwing in some gold jewelry?" The closet space was limited in the camp so Adrianna's full wardrobe was left back in New York. That didn't mean she didn't try. Her closet almost resembled the ones in old cartoons that are at risk of exploding if you try to open them. Her outfit was already planned, but the sibling seal of approval was necessary.

"What do you think? Hot or extra hot?" She did a little spin in front of her brother, then striking a pose with a wink. She looked amazing, maybe a little dressed up for the party. It can't hurt to look your best. "I promised I'd meet up with Kalani and walk over there together. Do you wanna meet up with us later? I already laid out some amazing outfit choices for you." She air kissed him before walking out the door. "I'll see you there! Look hot!" she called over her shoulder.

Adrianna could already hear the music from the bonfire as she made her way to the children of Aphrodite's cabin. Nothing could keep Adrianna away from a social event. Part of her wanted to head straight there and get in on the festivities, but she wasn't about to ditch her friend right off the bat. Later in the evening was a definitely a possibility especially if any of the cuter demigods caught her attention. Plenty of them have already made an impression, but nobody was her main target. 'Who knows? Tonight, if the guy plays their cards right...' She giggled to herself thinking about it.

Finally arriving at Kalani's cabin, she waltzed in their like she owned the place. "KALANI! ARE YOU READY TO PARTY? she called out, not bothering to quiet down. If Aphrodite's kids weren't getting ready for a party, are they really her children?

xii Demeter | Style | #04a549
____________________________________________
____________________________________________

Dimitri's days started out the same every day. Wake up, morning run, eat, train, eat again, talk to the campers, and then sleep. He never bothered to change up his routine. Some people admired his consistency, others said he needed to let loose more. If only they knew what letting loose meant for him. Today was no different, except everyone was talking about the bonfire tonight. Parties were neutral for him. Dimitri liked the large amounts of people and socializing. The drama and drunks were the negatives in his mind. To him, it was a necessary thing to keep things calm at camp. Some campers complained they didn't get any 'play' time so having an event like this would keep the masses happy.

Dimitri stepped out of his shower, shaking off some of the leftover water. Normally, he wouldn't have tried to put in any extra work to his appearance, but tonight required a bit more grooming than a regular training day. With a quick swish of the hand, his soaking hair was drying thanks to a burst of wind. A perk of the Demeter children, never have to worry about a hairdryer. Clothing was next and what Dimitri despised most. He understood dressing nice, but it never felt natural. Why look good if you can't function? Girls made this a bigger mystery, thankfully he never worried about this with Callie. 'Callie... I haven't thought of her in a while.' The girlfriend he left back in Greece hadn't been on his mind lately. Maybe it was due to being busy or worrying about any of the demigods or gods knowing his weakness, but she hadn't been on his mind. A certain grey haired woman might've had something to do with it...

After finally deciding on his party attire, Dimitri groaned. A part of him didn't want to go, but if he didn't he wouldn't be playing a good role model. Being a loner wasn't always a bad thing, but getting out and meeting people builds bonds. Bonds equal friendship, friendship equals community, and community equals peace. Or chaos. There are so many variables. He shook off these negative thoughts. If he left the cabin then he'd have to go. He had a few budding friendship he could build up tonight and see Lise tonight, no doubt she'd miss a party. Come to think of it, Athena's children's cabin isn't too far from Demeter's. They could walk over there together. There's always safety in numbers right? "Exactly. I'm asking for her benefit not mine. Purely, looking out for her." It wasn't a complete lie, but not the complete truth either.

Dimitri knocked on the door of the genius's cabin, before cracking the door open. "Hey, I was heading over to the bonfire. Did you wanna join me, I guess? Just offering you don't have to." The offer sounded awful in his monotone voice. Dimitri sounded like he didn't care at all, when really he was trying to say something semi-normal. Typically, demigod luck.

"Hey, I was heading over to the bonfire. Did you wanna join me, I guess? Just offering you don't have to."

She had been supposed to meet Annie to walk to the bonfire, and there was a slight twinge of guilt before Lise responded to the 'Adonis' outside her door. A slight twinge, mind you, and one that was immediately followed by a shrug of, 'Oh, fuck it, she'll understand. And it's not like she gets angry at anyone anyway.

Such is why, when Dimitri knocked oh-so-shyly on door, and offered her oh-so-chivalrously some company for the walk, she replied with a zest and enthusiasm synonymous with her usual nature.

Just as he spoke, the door handle tore out of Dimitri's grasp, pulled away by the silver-haired demon on the other side. Eyes winged and expression wily, Lise looked up at the grecian with a wide grin.

"Oh, Adonis, you know you don't have to ask me twice."

Closing the door behind her, Lise smoothly slipped passed Dimitri, reaching the bottom stop before stopping and looking back up at him over her shoulder, and shooting him a look of, 'Coming?'

She had never been one to hem and haw, nor to mince words or play coy. She was Lise, after all.

She was impatient, and she wanted to party.
_________________________________________________________

Annie tutted at the internet message on her phone (thank Gods for wifi, what with the lack of phone service), more amused than upset.

sorry, tall, dark and handsome's come a-knocking, soooo~ c u at the bonfire <3

Annie was hardly shocked by the behaviour; she may not know Lise especially well, but it was fairly obvious that she was a fickle creature with quite simple desires. If anything, Annie admired that part of Lise that was so brutally unapologetic, so consistently decisive. Annie was the opposite, always sorry for something, and always troubled by the burden of making choices.

One choice that had not been difficult to make, however, was whether or not to attend the bonfire party. As someone who walked a strange line between introvert and extrovert, Annie did enjoy parties, and she was eager to get to know her fellow campers. Perhaps new faces were exactly what the camp needed, to start afresh, to rise from the ashes.

She hoped so, the past year had set a gloom over the camp, and even her unrivalled healing abilities could not remedy the wounds left by 2017's terrible events.

Arriving at the edge of the party, she searched the crowd for a familiar face, and spotted it almost immediately. It was hard not to notice such a face, considering how remarkably lovely it was.

Walking over to Kalani and Adrianna, the demigod grinned, offering a double wave.

"Hey! ... Woah, well, you guys look amazing."

"You are your mother's daughter and I'm definitely borrowing that outfit sometime." It was a cute outfit, but more on the simple side than Adrianna was used to. She wasn't about to tell Lani that though. Little lies like that weren't uncommon for Audrey, a curse of being one of Hera's children. Well, what Kalania doesn't know won't hurt her.

The two girls held hands as they walked towards the bonfire. It was something the two usually did together. Adrianna never thought of it as something romantic, more of how you'd hold hands with a sibling. Some campers have commented on it, but a glare from her silenced them. It wasn't like Adrianna was annoyed at the thought of being considered homosexual by the campers. The fact that two girls couldn't be friendly without thinking something else was happening was rude. Why do people always make assumptions? Speaking of homosexuals, she noticed Nikolaos had arrived. He's the little brother she had always dreamed about and the two got close within their first week at camp. His sweet yet awkward demeanor was so adorable. While he hadn't acknowledged it himself, Adrianna picked up on his sexuality. Obviously, better than Nik since he didn't even know. Adrianna didn't know how to approach the topic, but knew she'd try her best for him. Adrianna gave him a wave and her best grin.

"Hey! ... Woah, well, you guys look amazing." Cue, another cutest camper! The fact that Nik and Annie were siblings seemed too perfect. They're the kindest people at camp and Adrianna was proud to say she got along with both.
"I wish I could I pull off layers like you can! You look absolutely amazing!~" Yes, Adrianna may have been exageratting, but the girl did look cute. "I thought Lise was coming with you- Ah I see now." The appearance of Lise and Dimitri didn't go unnoticed by Adrianna. Call it a child of the goddess of marriage thing, but she could tell the different between potential couple and two friends. It wasn't really a power, but Adrianna will gladly claim it is. Interesting combination the two of them... One of the biggest personalities at camp with the one with the least personality. Something she'll catalogue for later, or gossip a bit about. Probably both.

The bonfire was getting more and more crowded. Music was playing, food and alcohol being served, and, Adrianna's personal favorite, many attractive people. Adrianna was fine just hanging out with the girls, dancing. However, she wouldn't turn down some TLC from an interesting guy. So far, nobody was worth her attention. She had plenty offers, some more pushy than others. One guy thought bringing her a beer meant she had to dance with him. A quick nod of her head and that guy suddenly decided he needed to eat. Influence is such a great ability. One guy did make her wonder. He sat on the outside of the bonfire, frown on his very attractive face. He looked like a challenge, something Audrey couldn't ignore. "Girls, I'll see you in a bit. I found a challenge, byyyye." With her farewell, Adrianna went towards Mr. Hughson. She was aware of his parentage and the history at the previous camp. Was it potentially dangerous? Absolutely, but she doubted he'd try anything at a crowded party. She quickly grabbed two, cold beers from a cooler before approaching.

"I'm pretty sure parties are for having fun, Mr. Frown." Adrianna teased, holding out the beer to Mason. "Maybe we need to loosen you up." She let a girlish chuckle, battling her eyes.

Draining the bottle he held in his hand, Finley looked over at the partygoers once more, boredom creeping up on him. Gwen and Nik still stood together, chatting away. Finley decided maybe he would approach them, before his eye is caught by someone else.

He didn't recognise her but she stood alone, just out of the way. Her eyes grazing over each person as though she was waiting for something to happen. Swallowing his last sip of beer, Finley takes a deep breath - he wasn't used to approaching other people, in fact, usually Finley liked to steer clear of others.

However, this is a party after all and if he can't be sociable here, where can he. Turning to the drinks table behind him, Finley pops the cap off of two more beers, the cool bottle a comfort against his increasingly sweaty palms. Gods, why was he so nervous.

Sure, she's beautiful, but just the simple fact of approaching someone, anyone, was what caused Finley's stomach to turn. Shaking his head slightly, Finley resolves to do this one thing. If he doesn't talk to anyone else tonight, he will talk to this mysterious girl.

Setting a small smile on his face, in the hopes that he can look friendly, Finley walks the short distance over to where she stood. Still alone, still watching everyone else. Clearing his throat, Finley extends a hand which held one of the beer bottles, "Hey I, um,
" He begans -not the smoothest start - "I got you a beer."

Shit, what was that? He didn't even introduce himself, just shoved a beer on her. What if she doesn't even drink? Oh Gods, this is why he doesn't talk to people, Finley thinks. Mentally, Finley kicks himself but outwardly he doesn't let the smile on his face flinch for a second, his hand still outstretched. Hoping she took the beer so he'd be free to head back to his cabin and never speak to anyone again. This is what happens when Finley, the notorious recluse, tries to make friends. It doesn't go well.

The two girls reached the bonfire in a matter of minutes, fingers still entwined. It was more of a subconscious thing that Kalani did and she certainly never meant it romantically. Just like she might grab Wes' hand to drag him to see something, taking Adrianna's and pulling her along to the bonfire meant nothing more than Kalani was excited and wanted to get there now.

Just a short while after they had arrived, so did Annie, greeting them with a, "Hey! ... Woah, well, you guys look amazing.
" Kalani giggles, sending her a smile in the form of a 'thanks' before grabbing Annie into her arms for a tight hug.

Finally releasing the girl, Kalani steps back to assess Annie's outfit, "You look so lovely!" She beams, excitement bubbling up in her voice. Kalani couldn't be happier, surrounded by her two very best friends at camp. Of course none of them had been there long enough to be actual best friends, but it had been surprising how quickly these three had taken to each other. Kalani had always been good at making friends, and it seems that only a short while after arriving at the camp, she had managed to do just that.

"I thought Lise was coming with you- Ah I see now." Kalani follows Adrianna's gaze to where Lise stood, alongside Dimitri. Oh. Kalani's smile falters for a fraction of a second, before she places it back at full force on her face. "They look cute together." Kalani forces out, catching Lise's eye and sending her a wave as she does so. Shaking off any negative emotion she may be feeling.

The girls chatted and danced along to the soft music drifting throughout the bonfire for a while, until Kalani noticed someone catch Adrianna's eye. Before the girl could tease her about it, the daughter of Hera opens her mouth. "Girls, I'll see you in a bit. I found a challenge, byyyye." Kalani laughs softly and waves her off, watching as Adrianna makes a beeline for Mason. That would be interesting.

Kalani would be content to just sit and watch whatever was about to happen unfold, but instead she turns to Annie, a wry smirk on her face. "Let's play a game," She whispers to the girl before she turns away to face the rest of the partygoers. "Hey, guys," Kalani calls out in an attempt to get all their attention.

She then waltzes over to the drinks table, picking up the bottle Finley had just placed down. "Spin the bottle anyone?" She suggests, her smirk growing into a full fledged mischievous grin. She knew some of the elder students would probably sit this game out, but Kalani couldn't think of a better way to get to know her fellow newbies than by kissing them!

Creating a circle of people just next to the fire, Kalani heads back to Annie and squeezes her hand, "Come play." She whispers, before taking a seat for herself in the circle and placing the bottle down in the middle of the group.

Spying Gwen and Niko standing a couple feet away, Kalani calls out - "Hey you guys, wanna join?" Attempting to get as many people involved as possible. This ought to be an awful lot of fun.

"I thought Lise was coming with you- Ah I see now."

Annie didn't need to turn around to know who Lise was with. 'Tall, dark and handsome, had been clue enough. Instead, her attention turned to Kalani. Catching the glimmer of sorrow on her face, Annie frowned in concern, and looked over to Lise and Dimitri.

Suddenly, the sight was somber instead of entertaining, and Kalani's, "They look cute together," incited a troubled look rather than a smile from the daughter of Apollo.

As it always did, the concern settled in her mind, and even Adrianna's 'challenge' did not work to eradicate it. It was comfortable there, now, and Annie feared its lingering, not in herself but in Kalani.

She'd always had it, this tendency to overthink things, to fret and worry over others rather than herself. Annie was ever the altruist, and she empathised so fiercely with other people, that it was hard to even escape their emotions, let alone ignore them.

Not that she ever wanted to, for it was in her nature to care.

Lise, on the other hand, seemed blissfully unaware of the tension, and grinned wildly when she caught sight of them, waving eagerly before cocking her head towards Dimitri to ask,

"You know Kalani and stuff, right?"

She barely waited for a reply before marching over towards the trio, breaking into the circle slowly being formed as her eyes lit up in eager anticipation.

"Did I hear, 'spin the bottle'?"

Annie, meanwhile, blinked a couple times, perturbation touching her features as she considered the game at hand. Kalani's gentle squeeze of her hand brought her out of her awkward anxiousness, and she shrugged before smiling with resolve.

"Sounds fun."

She smiled at Gwen and Niko, abandoning her apprehension in favour of cheer, waving them over just as Lise sat down inelegantly beside Kalani, shooting Dimitri yet another you coming? look as she pointedly slapped the seat beside her.

When Mason took the beer from her hand, she knew she was in. Especially once he smiled. "My nicknames may suck, but they got you to smile." Adrianna took a swig from her beer, enjoying the taste."And I'll only take advantage if you want me to. I like my guys sober normally, but I can make an exception."

Adrianna let out a soft laugh before taking a brief glance around the rest of the party. It seemed like most of the campers had arrived. She had heard Kalani talk about spin the bottle and Audrey never missed the chance at a party game. Hopefully, Mr. Mysterious next to her would join in. There was a chance, but some campers didn't like Hades's son. Being the son of the god of death can be terrifying, but Audrey wasn't worried. The last thing he would do was kill somebody at a public event. Her love of attractive men could be her downfall with this one.

Audrey could feel the eyes on her as the circle for spin the bottle grew. It was both flattering and a bit annoying. Her minor popularity at the camp was fun and being the center of attention was even better, but it can be difficult when she's trying to do something. Mason being the current something. None the less, she couldn't leave her peers waiting. Seeing her brother sit down only added to it. Mason must've picked up on it too. "I don't think they're gonna start without you." Audrey put on a playful pout. "The curse of being loved." She joked. "Why not join in? I thought parties were about 'losing inhibitions.'" Throwing his words back in his face brought a huge grin to her face. "Plus, you might get lucky." Audrey left before she could hear his response.

Adrianna sat next to her brother, making sure to sit ladylike. Flashing any of these guys was the last thing she wanted. The group was still growing, adding the Zeus siblings and a few others. Adrianna tried not to beam when she noticed Mason decided to join. Maybe tonight would go her way. Audrey leaned onto her brother, whispering in his ear. "So, who do you want to land on you?"

Dimitri didn't hesitate to follow after Lise, trying to keep in step so he wouldn't fall behind. Dimitri wished she shared her excitement at the idea of the party. All the campers looked like they were having fun as he approached. He saw Theo acting as the camp bartender. Dimitri made a mental note to go see what he was serving later. Some alcohol might do a bit of good for him, as long as he didn't drink too much.

Dimitri listened as Lise talked, nodding and making a rare comment if it felt necessary. The demigod liked to let the other campers talk and Dimitri's negativity wasn't always a great conversation starter. He liked listening to Lise talk. It was fun to watch her talk so animatedly. Dimitri always found it refreshing to find people who had such high energy like her, maybe it was partly due to balancing out his own lack of energy. Who knows?

"You know Kalani and stuff, right?" 'One of Aphrodite's children, I believe.' Dimitri thought. He noticed the dark haired girl standing over near Annie and Adrianna. He knew of the trio standing in front of him. He enjoyed their company, but he wouldn't say he was especially close with any of them. The girls were nice, Annie the most. He nodded at the group of girls, noticing a bit of sadness in Kalani's eyes when they approached. She seemed happy whenever the two interacted before, similar with Lise. He'd have to ask about that later.

Hearing about the game 'spin the bottle,' Dimitri was intrigued. He'd never played the game, but had heard of it. Callie explained it to him once when he saw it on television for the first time. On television, the game usually forced two people who liked each other but wouldn't admit it to kiss, something Dimitri never quite understood. Why force someone to kiss? It didn't sound like fun. Despite his dislike of the game, Dimitri took a seat by Lise. It didn't hurt to be involved and maybe nobody would land on him. Although, he would mind if the genius beside him landed on him. "Shall we begin?"

As the number of participants in Kalani's little game begun to grow, as did the excitement bubbling in her chest. Ani had always been an excitable girl, but nothing got her quite as animated as parties - specifically party games. They always made things interesting. Glad to see Annie come over and sit herself down with her brother who had also just joined, Ani sends her another smile, her tongue poking out from between her teeth, something she did when she was excited.

Lise is next to come over, sitting right next to Ani, and while the smile never wavers on her face, Ani can't help but think that there's no way she's gonna get to kiss Lise now - not when she's sitting right next to her! For such an intelligent girl, Lise had been pretty oblivious to Ani's little crush on her. Lise is quickly followed by Dimitri, who she is sure to send a semi-sincere smile to, after all, he didn't know how Ani felt.

"Suggester spins first, right?" Ani is startled as a deep voice speaks to her out of nowhere. She'd never expected Mason to join, but Ani knew that he would make the game extra intriguing. Especially since Adrianna seemed to have her sights set on the guy. "Mason, I didn't realise you were a seasoned pro."
She teases, raising an eyebrow yet knowing full well that it was unlikely Mason played this game often; but who knew, the guy seemed full of surprises.

As she is about to spin the bottle, Ani's attention is caught by Wes and Trinity walking through the clearing and into the party. Of course, her big brother had never mentioned his real feelings for Trinity to Kalani - they'd only just met and were still trying to get to know each other, so their love lives never really came up - but it would take a very oblivious person, and an especially oblivious child of Aphrodite, not to see the chemistry between them. Or at least see how Wes looked at her. Attempting to catch her brother's eye as he walks over to the snack table, Ani sends him a little wave.

"Shall we begin?" Another male voice brings Ani out of her thoughts. Oh crap, she'd gotten caught up in seeing what Wes was doing she'd almost forgotten to take her turn. Laughing softly, Ani nods and turns back to the group, looking at each new member. She'd managed to draw in both old and new campers which delighted Ani, hopefully there would be some proper bonding going on tonight so that everyone got to know each other a little bit better - or at least got to know the inside of each other's mouths a little better.

Hand on the bottle, Ani gives it a strong spin, her eyes glued to it as it began to slow. Oh Gods, who was she about to kiss. Ani's heart pounded in her chest as it passed Mason, then Sylas, spinning past Niko and finally, it landed on Annie.

"Oh, easy!" Ani beams, jumping up from her seat and bounding over to where Annie sat. "Don't worry, I've been told I'm a great kisser." She giggles, leaning in to softly peck Annie's lips. She wasn't gonna go in for a full make out or anything, not with one of her closest friends. That would probably make things just a little awkward. Instead, Ani opts for a sweet little kiss, before she gives Annie a jokingly flirtatious wink and heads back to her seat.

Eyeing up the group, Ani tilts her head to the side, "Right, who's next?" She ponders, before turning to look at Lise who was sat next to her. "Guess it's you, Lee!" Clapping her hands together in glee, Ani sits back, waiting for Lise to take her turn.

Theo followed his sister with his eyes to the circle of people in front of him. Her comment replayed in his head. "Why, Theo. Not forward enough to make your first move, I see. Never fear - Miss St. John will find a way to make it happen." He laughed it off like it didn't bother him any, but in all reality Theo saw it as indicative of the change in himself. A year ago he would have been more aggressive. Hell, he had been. Theo knew very well where that got him with Trinity. He had calmed down in the way he moved around people in the last year, though, and now he let things come to him. He had become a subscriber to the theory of 'if it is meant to be, it will be'.

Theo watched as another one of the new guys at camp snatched one of Sylas' shots off the table, knocking it back, and leaving with as quick as he came. The guy was clearly flirting with Sylas. Theo cocked an eyebrow at Sylas as his new friend turned back towards him, nudging him with his elbow. "Well, I guess that's my invitation to spin the bottle."

"Yeah, I bet," Theo held his suggestive gesture, as if to let Sylas know he wasn't fooling him at all by chasing the boy. "You should join... Who knows, you might get to kiss me." Theo laughed as Sylas stepped away to join the circle. He just stood there for a minute, almost to delay the inevitability of him joining the game. Looking around, he saw no other outlets for his attention that appealed to him as much as the game. Finally, as he downed his last shot, Theo shrugged and headed towards the circle. His sat down next to one his newer friends, Dimitri, patting him on the back as he slid into the niche on the unoccupied side of Dimitri. Theo looked across the circle at his sister and Gwen. Gosh she's beautiful. Theo thought as he saw the two laugh. He looked away as he saw Emery lean in and both girls survey the circle. Now all he could hope for was a lucky spin in his direction.

There was always this strange concoction of anticipation and dread with games such as spin-the-bottle. Every spin egged on by thoughts of both 'please let it land on...' and 'please don't let it land on...' There was a degree of fate (or chance, for the more realistic) that made each spin something of a thrill.

Annie hadn't played it many times before, and her last memory of it was as a teenager, with a boy whose eagerness combined with his lack of experience made for something less than pleasant.

As the bottle twirled, she hoped the best for Kalani, as she always did, and when it landed on her, she smiled knowing that Kalani would have no such issues, and nor would she. Such thoughts were reaffirmed with Ani's reaction, as the latter girl responded in a light tone,

"Oh, easy!"

Annie giggled at her 'great kisser' comment, and as Ani's lips touched Annie's own, the daughter of Apollo felt no embarrassment or concern, completely comfortable with her company and her kisser.

"Guess it's you, Lee!"

Annie leaned back slightly in her seat, looking at Lise expectantly, only for Lise to raise an eyebrow in a questioning look.

"Oh? I thought it was whomever the bottle landed on went next? I'm hardly a stickler for the rules, but I'm not a total anarchist."

She shrugged, her usual smirk reappearing on her face. "But if you insist."

Her numerous silver rings glittered in the firelight as she gave the bottle a twirl, and her smirk remained as the bottle spun once, twice, thrice, before finally landing on Trinity. Her eyes flicked up from the bottle, and she shot Trinity a flirtatious look before leaning across the bottle towards her.

"Xena, my love," She tapped her lips with her index finger, "You got something for me?"

Image Duke joined the girls slowly and watched Evelyn's hand hang mid-air and return to her side without shake.

At this rate things might have been less awkward with the drunkards in spin the bottle. It was that unwelcoming he even thought about merging over towards that game. But he preferred not to kiss people under the circumstances that a bottle told him to. Besides, he wasn't sure if this was how Evelyn and McKenna talked to people or there was some underlying stand off thing going on. He preferred the first because then McKenna definitely had a friend in Eve.

Duke bit his tongue for now though, even when he found Eve's questions a little interrogative towards his sister. When she moved to the coolers, Duke took the opportunity to step towards McKenna. "Call me if you need anything." He knew McKenna could handle herself but Duke wanted to cover all basis. Drunks pushing beers in her hand, Evelyn pushing her temper were probably the most concerning at this point.

Duke approached the fire catching the tail end of Alex and Wes's conversation. "...make things awkward for them."
It sounded more like an intimate, private conversation so Duke kept walking, and frankly, finding heat wasn't ever an issue for him. For now he'd have to stay a little longer before calling it quits and returning to his cabin.

Image Mason tried not to snicker as it landed on Trinity. It looked like it took a while for things to click in place for her, but when it did, Trinity went for it. She didn't hesitate which probably knocked Lise's ego up a couple thousand notches. But even Mason was pretty impressed and if she had done the same to him and kissed him the same way, he'd have an inflated ego too. She hung there for an extra moment, flirting with the daughter of Athena. No that wasn't right...death threat?

β€œAl!” Trinity called.
"Don't call her over," Mason grumbled, rubbing his forehead. Even the concept of her rejoining, doing some stupid fake modest giggle about having to kiss someone, annoyed him. Or worse those over confident "seductive" smirks.

A few impatient heckles came her way and Trinity took the spin. When it landed on Theo, Mason peered at Trinity's expression and laughed. For a moment he was worried he'd have to grab Trinity when she pounced and attacked him and they'd have to make a hasty retreat but instead, she kissed him like she was going to war. His eyes widened and brows shot up. It was probably the first time Mason was envious of Theo. Like not knowing whether she was going to kill you or give you the best angry sex of your life...what a thrill.

Mason rolled out his neck. His eyes washed over the circle. If the son of Eris knew some sub-text, maybe he'd revel a little more in the drama or make some drama and chaos, or maybe he'd just keep undressing Mateo with his eyes. Mason's eyes landed on Adrianna and he couldn't help the small smirk that passed his lips. He was hopeful but pretty pessimistic about the odds of landing on her and while she was beautiful, he wasn't swept away in the idea of lust like so many others tonight.
Trinity shrunk back into her spot beside him causing him to turn back to her. β€œWell, next time I join something like this, don't let me.”
Mason laughed. "You did good, I'm honestly...blown away."
Trinity checked her beer. β€œThat’s my cue to go. Good luck, champ.”
"I almost feel left out. Don’t you have something for me?" He tapped his lips as Lise had and laughed.

Boy he hoped Romeo saw Trinity and Theo kiss. Did children of Aphrodite even feel jealousy? His head shifted to Kalani curiously.
"Ani," he said, he thought he had heard people call her that before, "who's your favorite on camp so far? It's not a trick question either," he assured with an amused smile. He definitely didn't expect Kalani to say him, unless in a joking nature. "Just some...soul searching. An interval game, if you will."

A sXXTrinity's lips pressed against Lise's, the latter girl's brows shot up in bemusement, and once they finally separated, said expression did not leave her face.

XX"Was that okay?"

O h ,XX definitely. Lot of passion, which is always fun, although you were sending out some major hate-sex vibes. Not that that's a bad thing. Also, I can tell that you're a little inexperienced, but I would be happy to help you with that.

T a c t l e s sXXas she was, Lise knew better than to say any of this to the obviously emotionally conflicted demigod, so instead she just carried on with her detachedly amused smile, and raised her hand in an 'okay' gesture.

S h eXXher own kiss, she was surprised by how quickly she'd grown bored by the game, which was so often the source of drama and scandal- at least in 90's teen dramas. Her attention was quickly drawn away from the empty beer bottle, as she watched with a smirk the chaos around her. Or, perhaps not chaos, not yet. But brewing. She barely knew half of the people at camp, but none of them seemed especially apt at hiding their emotions. Their furtive glances, their jealous frowns, their conflicted gazes... they weren't subtle in the slightest.

L i s e ' sXXeyes drifted to the angsty brunette -Alex, was it?- as the girl dragged Theo away from Xena, clearly unable, or perhaps unwilling to read the room. Ha. Relatable, amiright? A lot of unpleasant rumours followed around the daughter of Zeus, the most prominent being the story of her murdering a fellow camper last year. Apparently, it had been an act of vengeance, and although Lise sympathised with the notion, the fact that she'd been allowed to return to camp without punishment after literally killing someone irked her slightly. Perhaps it was her logical nature, that demanded fairness in regards to punishment and legal retribution. Then again, it wasn't like she was much of a stickler for rules, so perhaps she was being hypocritical.

T h e nXXagain, she had never murdered anybody, so perhaps she wasn't.

D e s p i t eXXthe drama going on around her, Lise's attention was dragged back to her own circle when Mason (Or 'Fall-Out Boy', as she liked to call him) queried Ani about her 'favourite person at camp.' Despite herself, Lise found herself surreptitiously listening in, curiosity riddled with something else caught in her expression. Ani's vague answer brought a small smirk to Lise's lips, and, satisfied, she took her attention back to the messiness around her. At least, until Ani rose from her seat, and Mason's issued yet another delightfully tantalising question.

XX"Do you feel jealous or possessive when your favourite is swept up in someone else?"

XX"For a self proclaimed dick, you're quite the gentleman. Oh, and by the way, I've never had that happen to me,"

S h eXXsmirked once more, only to scoff as the girl wandered off to join her brother.

XX"Bye, then. She sighed before standing and stretching, looking down towards Dimitri with a wan smile. "Well, then, Adonis. I'm afraid this party blows. I think I'mma make like a tree. " Expression bored, she gestured in the direction of her cabin with a silver-ringed thumb.

A n n i eXXhad never been the type to get caught up in drama, but even she could not help but watch the endless plot threads play out, nor could she avoid sensing the growing negativity of the party, as conflict loomed threateningly over every interaction.

I nXXall honesty, the bad vibes had started to stress her out, and she'd spent most of her time sipping on some peculiarly sweet beverage that Lise had pushed her way during Trinity and Theo's kiss. And then another. And another. Downing the remnants of the beverage, Annie silently rejoiced in feeling the bad vibes fall out of focus, blurring into something she could pretend was joyous rather than toxic.

A sXX Ani left the group to see her brother, Annie waved pointlessly at her retreating back, before leaning forward and placing her head in her hands. Her face, reflected in the bottle, was bright-eyed and rosy-cheeked, the latter a side-effect of the alcohol, the former a typical part of her features. With a finger, she twirled it, watching it spin with a soft smile, despite knowing that the game had already reached its conclusion.

T h eXX bottle slowed to a stop, pointing at the empty seat across from Annie, behind which a figure approached to lean across the circle.

XX"Annie, me and Gwen are going to walk back now, do you wanna come?"


T h eXX rising from the bottle, Annie hiccuped when she saw who it was, and after looking at him for a just a moment too long (easy, she assured herself, to blame on her dizziness... or maybe it was her dizziness. She wasn't too sure, in all honesty) she smiled. Widely. Liquid courage, it seemed, had gripped her.

XX"Yep!"

S h eXXstood up quickly, and a lightness flooded her head, causing her to stumble before she caught herself, giggling. Walking with only a slight wobble over to where Finley and and Gwen stood, she grinned once more, pointing wildly in the vague direction of the cabins.

XX"Let's go!"

STAFF ANNOUNCEMENT - ALARIC HART

ImageHe headed to the hall with a large bag over his shoulder prompting the camp attendees outside to follow him as he passed so he could make the announcement. Other staff patrolled the camp rounding the strays up or those that chose to slumber in their cabins.

Once he was burrowed in towards the back of the hall, he begun. "Excuse me." He cleared his throat. "Excuse me." Having little success to gain their focus that way, he whistled loudly, its sound easily carrying through the hall.
"Great. Now, it has come to my attention that the camp has been making ill on its promises to help harness and flourish your powers and provide exciting activity. So today, we play an extreme capture the flag. And yes it's mandatory that you participate. As elementary as that may sound, you need it. Welcome to camp. The teams will be split up in two.."

He cleared his throat and read from his list. "The Red Spartans: Alexandria, Andromeda, Dominick, McKenna, Ji-hyun, Sloane, Theo, Harleen, Finley, Atticus, Adrianna, Kalani, Elias, Nikoloas, Lise, Mason."

He looked up from his list expecting the groans to roll in but protesting would get them nowhere.

"The Blue Trojans: Ajax, Gwendolyn, Trinity, Wesley, Sylas, Annie, Seung-min, Emery, Dimitri, Duke, Keith, Isobel, Mateo, Areum, Raven and Evelyn."

"You die, you lose. You tap out, you lose. You get your color taken from you, you lose and come back to the hall and watch."
He dropped his bag with a grunt on a nearby table with a clatter. "Your colors are at your base. These are your weapons. You do not have to use a weapon, they will not be given to you. You can use your powers." He smirked a little. "Welcome to the Hunger Games." The reference to the gripping YA book probably went over at least half the camp attendants heads. Most didn't give reading the time of day, and those that did read probably didn't concern themselves with something so modernized, their noses either stuck in the air or buried in work of literature and ancient tales instead.
Alaric was mostly referring to the cornucopia aspect. The weapons would be scattered among the woods and there’s for the taking, most of which were right at the center of the woods, gleaming and beckoning to be taken in the crossfire.
The camp attendees could figure out for themselves that the pain they could experience would be no more than a phantom pain via the weapons, traps and beasts that the very gods themselves, and some demigods designed and helped set up.

It would be best to see them treat it as real as possible.

"Do not go for fatal blows on each other," he warned as the final and only rule. A demigod turning on another demigod that way was vicious and cruel, and Alaric as well as other staff had no tolerance for it. It had no place in their camp.
"There are currently some hostile beasts prowling the woods," he assured in case anyone was disheartened by the idea of no-fatality experience. However, their very jaws and beings were enchanted so when they clamped down on a demigod fatally, they'd be warped straight to the hall. "You have two minutes to get to the woods, get your colors on, hide your flag within these perimeters," he pointed to the map's red and blue colored area on opposite ends of each other -AKA their bases, "devise a plan and create a universal safe word if you have to."

"I hope you're all awake, because time starts now."

Image "No offense taken. But with similar respect, the same could be said of a Hades child."
It was refreshing to come across someone so wise and Mason nodded with the statement to show, likewise, no offense was taken. "But, you can rest assured when I give someone my word, I follow through," Sylas added taking another grape from his bowl. "And I don't scare easily. I'm not frightened of a little bit of lightening."
Mason found himself nodding again and shrugging. Many would claim so. Jenn wasn't scared of lightening but the psycho bitch cut her head off. If you weren't scared of lightening and submissive to the spawns of Zeus they were particularly hostile because you didn't spoon-feed their massive egos.

"I think allies would be a more appropriate term. Friends aren't really in my wheel house. And no, I don't expect you to just trust me. Trust and friendship is earned... Not freely given."
"That it is."
Giving Sylas another look over Mason guessed they wouldn't evolve to such a stage. Keeping things business or as strictly allies would fit them both best. Worry of each other likely wouldn't come into the picture until after the Valises were gone. But who knew what the future held.

"Well, I mean we could simply just corner one of them... Stab stab. Job's done." Thankfully his lack of enthusiasm demonstrated that was among the most plain ideas and not a real one. "That lacks... Creativity, for lack of a better term. Sure, death is the end goal but we don't want it to be swift and merciful. It's more satisfying destroying someone, breaking them down and ruining them, root and stem."
What did he think Mason was doing? In addition to waiting for the right moment to present itself, he was trying some behind the scenes works.But he liked that Sylas liked the slower route. It was a bit more of a gamble but if it was a job done right, it would be most rewarding.
"I don't know how devious you are... But, I liked the idea of turning everyone they love against them."
Mason actually threw his hands up in the air and gestured to the hall. "Thank you! Finally someone gets it! I know I'm pretty but I haven't been spending my time doing my hair and flossing my teeth and solely thinking of ways to kill them." Mason hadn't exactly been targeting people they love to turn against them either, for the sheer fact that he couldn't even stand to be in radius of a Valis worshiper and they were harder to convert.
Actually, Mason was doing little in truth. He was just being a bit more social and charming and Alex already did the murdering. Mason did have one good asset though, however that was more an ace up the sleeve for him.

After a long moment in thought with his tongue pressed to his cheek, he spoke again. "I wouldn't mind dying to make a point. Providing old Pops brings me back." The camp needed to see the monsters under the surface. That it wasn't a one off thing. Like Sylas he wanted to ruin and bury their reputations and ruin the trust fellow demigods mistakenly placed in them. And sure, just to make it really burn, make their world collapse, turn the people they love against them.

Then, a staff member paced through the hall capturing Mason's attention. As he could have guessed, he was on a mission. Once he gathered everybody's attention, he laid out the task ahead.

It was in moments like so where Mason really had to reflect on his life choices, or certainly the choice of returning to camp and not killing Zeus's kids. Now he was teamed up with the one he despised most of all. At first he was consumed in hatred and distaste but eventually it evolved to a glimpse of opportunity. Extreme capture the flag meant full contact. In this case, it meant letting the demigods run wild like animals. Mason glanced back to Sylas. "Is the boy next door facade still staying on in the heat of competition?" He smirked and got up. Now was the time to see what those twins were made of that so easily slipped under the radar.

His legs carried him there automatically and he was in another head space entirely, even as he wrapped the band around his arm. Except when he had to tune in on the team speech, Mason supposed that might have been important. Important to feign attention in anyway as winning or losing didn't really matter to him. How many rematches could happen down the track, and what did winning really prove? That you had a good team and the right players? That they were lucky? Mason crossed his arms and waited for any outgoing brains to take initiative.

ImageTwo minutes!? Duke paced off to what was temporarily known as the Blue Trojan's base. He wasn't going to hide the flag, leaving that duty instead to the likes of Ajax or better, Seung-min. He pulled a blue bandanna and wrapped it around his forearm.

Duke pressed his tongue to his cheek on his little over-eager team. The hype was good, but they needed a strategy implemented, especially when the opposing team had the likes of Lise and McKenna. "We need defenders, attackers and maybe a mid-field. We also need to consider our biggest threats. Harleen, she's quick, she's deft, you dont want your band taken off you without knowing you've even been touched. Likewise, Andy, military brat and witch, she'll be more confrontational and physical, keep your wits about you. Kalani can seduce you, stay focused. Adrianna, I've never seen her competitive side but I can guess she has one, and not to underestimate her."
He gestured to Mateo because the very same applied to him. Then again who wasn't a threat? He gave up. "Take out the Spartans brains, healers and manipulators first, then deal with the brutes. They probably think we're a confrontational side too, that we're going in with guns blazing, but let's try to be a little more subtle. Travel in pairs if you can. Not attached at the hip though."
If there was an ambush, he’d prefer one teammate to go down and not a collective of them.
"Wes, Raven, Dimitri, Isobel cover the middle, please." Together the four made a disarming pair, and a protective one too if they accessed the right emotions and triggers, and powers of course.
"Emery, Seung-min, Sylas and Evelyn, you're our secret weapons. Aim for the Spartan's flag. Avoid the heat of the battle if you can, use evasive or defensive techniques." The four could get creative. Their gifts and applications were always a surprise and they weren't the type that urged an immediate threat. "Ajax, Trinity; they'll be expecting us. Let's not disappoint." They were probably the renowned biggest war-heads. Without them near the front line of battle, the opposition would get suspicious about their presence.
"Daniel -uh, Keith, stay as a line of defense. Gwendolyn, I think you'd make a strong offense but it depends where you want to go, you'd know where you're best kept. Annie, I think we need you to press forward too. Look after our assault team and stun some opponents. If that makes you uncomfortable, stay back with Keith."
Duke looked between the remainder of Areum and Mateo. The demigods whose attitude he most struggled to grasp. Daniel needed some help in defense, but he felt their usefulness could be better spent elsewhere. In the middle as both offensive and defensive forces.

Then he caught himself, swept up in heat of the moment. "That's my suggestion anyway," he said so the more sensitive didn't kick up a fuss about him taking lead on a strategy or 'ordering them around'. After all, he was no child of Athena or son of Zeus. "Anybody else got an idea?"

ImageKeith tried not to be so evaluating and calculating of the new state of camp. It seemed to bustle with a few more energetic bodies than last year and definitely a few more brooding faces and vibes. He felt his heart sink in the knowledge that it'd be hard to make friends. There seemed so little room for the socially awkward and everybody else already had established their "clique".

Sometimes the camp could be exceptionally boring and dull, but that was something he simply had to endure like everyone else and hope the next day would be more rewarding. His degree of boredom would just be more though. His lips pressed in a line and he plucked out his earphones and shuffled through his phone for a tune that could ignite his soul. Keith smiled slightly when he found it. Some would argue it was a little too swaggerish for him but part of him really liked it and had a guilty pleasure listening to JT.

The son of Hecate traveled through camp territory for another year of learning and fighting evil, having to suppress the urge to walk in rhythmic bounces and pull some Michael Jackson move. He made his way to hall, typically the central congregation point of people, new and regular. That, plus some staff waved him over to and pointed to it.

Some larger species of male had bumped him. "Daniel," they said casually, but he was bowing to the ground to retrieve his glasses that were knocked down on impact. He carefully placed them back on the bridge of his nose, surprised to see the brute had actually taken to stop and staring. For a round two, he prayed not.
Keith slowly rose and for some time it seemed they just stared at each other. "I'm sorry," Keith said finally and spun on his heel to take an extended detour. It wasn't worth getting his teeth knocked out and he didn't want to cause any trouble. Keith had spent some time in the gym on his holidays and become a bit more solid in build, but it was nothing that girls would second look or enough to engage in a fist-fight confidently. The hall would still be there too. He wasn't missing anything.

When he slid into the hall an announcement was happening, and he shrunk into the wall then nestled into a corner and slowly pulled out his earplugs. An extreme mandatory capture the flag...what could go wrong. Inside, Keith wanted to die there and then or dissolve into a puddle. It was like high school P.E class and the untalented still had to participate even when no one really wanted them on the team, and they didn't really want to participate, and the teachers were the only ones that thought it was a good idea in the entire universe. He sighed out and was the first to exit the hall and make his way to blue base.

Duke started rattling off a plan, and while he was smart and confident and that was semi-contagious when it came to his plan, Keith was super insecure about being the last line of defense by guarding the base especially by his lonesome. That was enough pressure for him to develop a twitch and have a nervous breakdown. But externally, there was no more displayed than light levels of anxiety.

"You know, it's not like we're attached at the hip," Andy remarked quite sassily. And while they weren't, they did look to be having certain fun last night so she just especially figured..."It's complicated. I'll tell you about it after training."

Uh-oh. Trinity nodded understandingly.

"Sorry to interrupt. I've just got a quick question for you Trinity. You up for a run tomorrow morning? We're both here, and well just doesn't seem right to not know anything about my half sister, ya know?"

Part of her was compelled to jump right out of her seat and stand to attention for her half-brother but that might have been weird. β€œHundred per cent,” Trinity assured with a nod and just as she was about to gesture for him to sit, a staff member strode into the Hall.

The more Alaric spoke, the more she was enthused. In days like so, Trinity admired camp for its lively and challenging nature. It had been what felt like forever since there was some ultimate challenge. And a team one at that. Something that tested them physically and mentally.

"Looks like I'll be seeing you all on the battle field."

"Yeah, she's stuck with me. Hell of a trade."

Trinity bumped her elbow into him and smiled. Then Andy snapped her fingers and was in battle gear. "Oh, shoot... You guys don't have armor. That sucks. Good luck guys. I hope, for your sakes, I don't come across you all on the battlefield."

Once she was out of sight and ear range, Trinity scowled. β€œBloody witches.” Then her gaze flickered back to Elias. β€œHope you bring your A game, champ. I honestly look forward to seeing what you can do.” Maybe Elias could mirror her own potential.

_______________________________________________________________

Trinity was so immersed in the plan of action by Duke, she felt his logic made sense providing you drew the lines and reasoning together for yourself. Granted, half of it probably would be improvised.

"Looks like I won't be your burden today Blondie. You're on offense... And I'm... Whatever the middle is." He gave her a nudge and chuckled.

She rolled her eyes playfully and bumped him back. β€œI'm bait, Wesley Preston and the middle is good.” Trinity spoke Duke's language. The middle could be offensive and defensive forces.

Also due to being immersed in all things war and winning, Daniel’s existence didn’t hit her radar until Wes appeared in her ear. "Uhhh... When did this happen? Does Andy know?"

Trinity looked around then saw the source and cocked her head. How subdued he was, the glasses…but that face! She couldn’t help but frown and stare. β€œHe would have mentioned something if he had a twin, right?” Trinity glanced up to Wes questioningly then back to this Keith.

Slowly she tore her eyes away from him and back to the group as Sylas piped up. That's why he wants you behind the scenes, she rebutted in her head with a scowl. Then Ajax with the most disarming of statements. "I'll hang back, just in case any stragglers get through."

She waited for his change of heart but it didn't come. Trinity's eyes darted back to Duke, almost feeling guilty to announce her views now. β€œI'm happy to push forward as my primary role, and I will do it, but I'd also like to be a spare. Go where I'm needed you know.” Trinity gestured towards Wes with her head and grinned, immediately patting him on the back.

β€œAlso, as a bit of a forewarning, some of the reds are equipped with light armor but even through armor there's weakness,” she assured her team. β€œAnd I know from experience a few of them like to take vantage points so it should go without saying but be mindful where you are.”

Trinity wrapped her color around her like a buckle then held another blue out for Wes. β€œWhere do you want it?” As she tied it around him, Trinity spoke. β€œSeriously though, Wes, use your powers and be an ass because people won't give you the same mercy.” Trinity felt defeated even telling him that. He could be a stubborn one even when his moral code had no place on the battlefield. β€œIf they're in red, they're the enemy,” she muttered aloud her own logic that probably did nothing to likes of Wes. She grabbed his chin. β€œDon't make me have to give you rage,” she teased. She just wanted him to look after himself to the best of his ability.

Before Trinity headed her separate ways from the team, Trinity grabbed Ajax’s shoulder but looked beyond him, painting the picture that they were talking no more than battle strategy or casual. β€œYou okay, you seem kind of out of it?”
She asked lowly.

Evidently something was the matter but it just came down to whether he wanted to share or not. Trinity looked longingly to her calling of the vast vegetation that she had to travel to get to the Spartans base. β€œI got to go but...stand strong.”
Trinity rose a fist mid air then started covering the ground she lost.

An announcement had never filled her with such joy. Normally they were long winded, boring, or on the topic of an incident or welcoming speech but it was capture the flag along with the teams and guidelines.

β€œSee ya on the flip side.”
She saluted to Mateo beaming, and without losing a beat headed to the Spartans base.

Once there, it was Theo that took the reins when she expected a plan to come from Alex or Lise. But the Son of Artemis..it was a nice curveball especially when he spoke such strategy and edge. Harley saluted when he gave her her role. She could definitely make heads spin. Now she was just itching to put that plan in effect alongside her teammates.

When they were all on the same page, Harley didn't waste time darting off and neither did Alex which she assumed would be her complementing pair. Harley had lost the brunette regrettably but no matter, Harley was quite capable of being an independent scout and she could always speed back and forth to tell their defensive line how things were looking or if she found that blue flag. Just then her foot landed on something and before the rope could seize her by the ankle she skipped out of it just in time.

Handsome director Alaric neglected to mention there were traps laying about. But Harley found it all the more exciting. She grinned wickedly and sped off to see what else she could find.

After smugly enjoying her specially made breakfast, a higher member of camp entered the hall and took over the show. Unfortunately a dreadful announcement came from such a handsome face. However, it did spike her intrigue.

_____________________________________________________________

Any feeling of content, peace, even the mundane and boredom was erased in seconds as she lay eyes on a particular male with glasses. Evelyn felt like time stopped around her, there was no air, no space, everything seemed to drop, including her heart. It wasn't because he was good looking, though he was a fine specimen, but it was her instincts that plummeted and knotted at the same time.

Evelyn restrained herself from approaching him however, it was too hard to identify what her instincts were alerting her to. It wasn't bad like when she locked eyes with Eris's son and Hades child, but it was unsettling. Evelyn would remain at distance to observe him some more for now, who he mingled with or who approached him and gain more of a sense from there. She wasn't dumb enough to walk into the void of the unknowing. Besides, the game required her attention and Duke wanted her as a secret weapon. To become and serve as a shadow player. So that is what she would do.

Only after she voiced her own idea for an edge. β€œCan we join hands for a moment or touch? It’s not to pray, I promise you.”

Evelyn touched the closest team members on their upper arms. Those that did link up were so rewarded with heightened senses aside from touch and taste. She found when those senses were manipulated it made people paranoid or in a state of awe, it served as only a distraction and presently they needed focus. With their hearing, sight and smell peaked they could be more attuned to danger. Building on what Trinity informed them to - the armor and vantage points, it seemed they could use it.

β€œI don’t know much about war strategy but I think we have a strong team to use misdirection to our advantage.” Evelyn wasn't exactly sure what she could do yet, but in the moment, she had a feeling she'd know how to tip the scales in the blues favor.

Once the meeting of sorts was adjourned she trudged her way out wide.
