Personality
Seraphina has a personality of many fine layers and as such it can be difficult for others to get a true grasp of her personality at large. On the surface she is a direct person, that values honesty and isn't afraid to speak her mind. Her godly parent and abilities gives her the immediate portrayal of a person that is very confident in taking charge in any situation, even meeting new people and socializing with others in general doesn't cause her to bat an eyelash. Underneath this apparently strong, confident, and outgoing persona is a quieter more introspective young lady. Someone who prefers places of quiet and peace, and becomes somewhat stressed if she spends to long around larger groups of people and being the sole leader all the time. She is a caring person that has a soft spot for those weaker or more vulnerable than herself, and will stand up for them if she feels they need it. And of course, Seraphina has a temper like most people, however she keeps her own under strict control and it takes a lot to make her lose that control. The few times she has lost it, she has come close to doing things that would ruin her known to be generally gentle personality and would be opened to be judged as cruel or vindictive; she strives not to allow it to get the better of or control her, as best as she is able.

Likes
✔ Leadership. Order. Responsibility. Power.
✔ Intelligence. Silent contemplation. The virtue of patience.
✔ Boots. Anything to give her a few extra inches of height, combat or heeled, it doesn't matter much.
✔ Dancing, and Fighting. After all, the only true difference is whether or not you have a weapon in hand.
✔ Her son, Ilias. Despite all the trouble his birth has created for her, she adores him as only a mother could.

Dislikes
✖ Vanity. Jealousy. Selfishness.
✖ Losing ground, or life's meaning.
✖ The stubbornly prideful. The unfaithful, adulterers (even, or well, especially herself).
✖ Small, dark places. Even within the kitchen some days, which is why she definitely prefers her odd chosen placement of the cabin by the lake instead.

Fears
☠ Betrayal, breaking confidence, and a loss of identity.
☠ Losing her young son before his time, like her brother (by Hera), Mickael.
☠ People finding out the true father of her child, and that she has been telling a delicate lie. It's much better to be thought of as a stupid, vulnerable girl that had gotten caught up in a brief and wrong relationship, or even the alleged incest that had been flying around as a brief rumor for a time; and that Ilias was just the byproduct of it and is only a legacy of Hera himself. Instead of a shamed demigod, that should have known better, but had caught, kept, and allowed the attention of another God to fall upon her.

Image

Height
5' 4"

Weight
110#s

Hair
Her hair is long, well-kept, and of the darkest, richness hue of the night. Sometimes it seems more so of a deep brown, on account of too many hours out in the sun bleaching it of it's natural hue. It has waves throughout its length, and often shown to be as she keeps her hair long, out of a braid or a bun or a pony-tail.

Eyes
Her eyes are large and open, warm, inviting, and chocolate in color.

Body Type
From her tiny height and measly weight; Her build is skinny, hardly any shape, and particularly lanky, all torso and legs and arms.

Distinguishing Marks
Her skin is rich, and olive-tinted, and unmarred on her face and neck. However, partially because of growing up a demigod with monsters possible at any turn, and much of her last four years living at the summer camp nigh full time, she now has a multitude of scars slashing across her frame. Most are silvery, and fine covering her arms and chest, are little more than the marks of training; while some heavier marks, like teeth punctures and deep clawed swipes, upon her lower back and legs, are likely remnants of a monster attack or two. Only recently, she has made one of them into a part of a inked trio of sweeping swallows in flight diagonally across her back, partially to hide it and as a means of remembrance.

Relationship with Godly Parent
Silent. Ever since Seraphina's run in with Poseidon, and then having her precious Ilias. It is a blessing, as much as it is a curse and punishment. Granted, while it is preferable that the Queen of Heaven and the Olympians doesn't come down to smite her wayward daughter and 'wrong' grandson; Seraphina wishes for the day (or a some sort of sign at the very least) she doesn't need to be fearful or embarrassed to even just pray to her mother for guidance or strength.

Bibliography
Seraphina was born to a single father (that never spoke much of her mother) from an ordinary family in a developed city, and lived free of worries until she was about 6 years old, and at that point life changed. Is it not the American dream for an immigrant family of Turk and Greek origin to make it big, to make enough money to change your social class and be seen as a starling success to those around you? The wealth had gone to her father’s head, however, and for a time they had lost their love and faith for one another as daughter and father. She was found by Hera, her mother she learned, the day her unheard prayers had resulted into finally breaking into desperate, but silent sobbing. As praying had been the only thing she thought could keep her safe from this ‘sickness’ extra money had brought. The Queen of Heaven and the Olympians granted her a blessing, and took her away to Camp Athens for the summer to be ‘free’. This abrupt action grudgingly caused her father to straighten up, and realize for all the worth he was putting in money (he was losing his daughter for it); and for much of her life since – she’s been happy at camp during the summers, and grateful to be home with him during the rest of the year. During her time at camp, and years of schooling, Seraphina continued to gain responsibilities. With a natural gift of inspiring leadership and loyalty in most of those around her, she blossomed in an astonishing world; with her compassion and persistence, there's nothing that could have stop her from reaching great success, from being a business tycoon or helping her mother and the Gods win the war! However… Despite all this success, even the mighty fall down sometimes. She fell her hardest falling in love with a God, or maybe, more truthfully Poseidon had fallen for her? Seraphina was a young fool that much was certain, and after a few encounters had found herself terrified to be with child. Alone. Hera was gone, or her panicked prayers (that gradually fell silent) had been ignored. She couldn’t, wouldn’t go to Poseidon, or any of his children for that matter. Her own father, new step-mother with twins on the way, turned away in disgust at the door. Fellow campmates, as was due, started rumors. All, except for Michael – who even took the brunt of one of worst the rumors that alleged incest, and who found it his duty to be the best damn adoptive father the little Ilias Theodrik Phoenix Antoniou could have ever hoped for and support his sister (and the knowledge of the child’s true father). Obviously, the loss of Michael this past spring, to a monster attack more so than the car wreck that the paper told about, has taken its toll on Seraphina and Ilias both. Seraphina may still be finding her right place in the world, but feels content in her new position of camp staff along with still being a “training” demigod and a mother as well. After her failure as it were, she is weary to ever let another get close in a relationship – hell, even a simple friendship hasn’t been her bit of tea either. She will hide her son's true identify with her last breath.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Favorite Abilities or Talents
Zeus may be the King of the Gods, but Hera is the Queen. While Seraphina enjoys using her camouflage skills, combined with changing into a quick, fleeting bird, to get around extremely well on the field of battle; her favorite ability however, is something that comes naturally to her - a silver tongue. She uses it to inspire the spirit of leadership and loyalty in those around her, as just the right amount of charming just to get 'stuff' done.

Cabin
Surprisingly, for a child of Hera, Seraphina's choice of cabin is far away from nearby the kitchens and main house, and out by the lake where normally Poseidon's children claim - which leaves a bitterness to her thoughts at times, of the reason why it was her that happened to catch his attention. The cabin itself isn't "queenly" by any means but is well-built modern design, and plain in commendations. For guests, that include new families and demigods she's welcoming at camp, or the rare friends and acquaintances she still has; the single floor cabin has a spacious sitting room and porch on the lake-front with a hearty handful of rocking chairs. For her, the other half of the house reserves a single bedroom with a large king-sized bed that she shares with Ilias; and a connected bath. And of course, plenty of toys littered around (she does attempt to clean up in the early morning, but it's going to be just as bad later on in the day); Seraphina may not make much from working at the Camp or Dance studios or working at an Animal Shelter or two time to time, but her estranged family at least as allowed her piece of the inheritance - and with it, she makes sure Ilias is well taken care of, one way or another.

Miscellaneous
Orion - One of Peagsus' many offspring, a Peagsi. Given to Seraphina as a gift, not a pet. He's a valiant steed for any battle, but thank goodness he is willing to help p/u groceries for the camp's kitchen or fly her to greet new families and demigods or to demigod funerals. Also open to helping train for mounted (flying or not) combat if anyone asks him politely. He often sticks around Seraphina's cabin, either snoozing beside the porch or grazing by the lake-side.
Languages - She is fluent in Italian and English, but has learned a smidgen of Modern Greek.

Give me words from the thoughtful mind, I’ll part with such jewels sadly; Considerate souls, both true and kind, but I do not suffer fools gladly.

So begins...

A snort of warm, steamed air fluttered her eye-lashes, awakening her from what felt like an all to brief slumber. Granted jet, or technically Pegasi-lag could do that to you, after spending minimally the last two weeks between visiting families of new demigods to make sure they would be getting to camp alright, and of course, the latest funeral, around the world; any sleep she had gotten, to at least be presentable to others, was something exceedingly precious. To say nothing of her steadfast mount, he was the one flying after all... With a quick observation in their surroundings in weary curiosity, she concluded that they were almost home: As Orion's hooves were now touching the same, fluffy clouds they had been soaring high over for most of the morning so far after picking up fresh groceries for the camp's kitchen - as to not return empty-handed and late to the opening of the summer camp. And the frost from their high altitude that had touched her dark hair was melting, causing the crow's nest of a bun to seem sleek rather than the air buffeted mess it was; and the goose-flesh sporting an appearance on her bare arms seemed to be dissipating. At the very least, the Pegasi had sought fit to wake her before making the descent through the clouds. Seraphina shifted her position, re-tightening the leg straps clamping her and her one still sleeping (thank the Gods) passenger sitting in front of her, and glancing over the luggage and groceries to make sure nothing had jostled looser during their journey; once situated, she leaned forward, clamping one arm around the little boy, and the spare hand tangling fingers tightly into the thick black mane. "Ready." Orion gave another warning snort, before dropping his wings from the steady air current that had carried them so far and dropped like a stone. The ground came fast in a howl of whipping wind, that would have dried her eyes out if she hadn't closed them in time, and not before long the Pegasi touched down with a jolt and mighty splash in the swallows beside the lake's shore - with his wings flared up and wide to provide more surface area to slow down, as galloping legs came under their own power up a minor stretch of hill nearing one of the nearby cabins usually reserved for Poseidon's children, before then slowing to a dignified trot, and finally easing into a stop right beside the porch with a exhausted nicker detailing the obvious 'here we are'. She slapped a gentle, familiar pat across his sweaty shoulder blades, before responding "Thank you, Orion." Her eyes re-opened after a few blinks, cautious as they glanced around and focused towards the main road-way he usually used to touch down on to find a duo standing in the way with bags around their feet. Ahh, that would explain it. Seraphina moved to free herself and her passenger of the straps, and slipped off the saddle to land on sore and jellied legs. It took her moment to regain balance, and more so as Ilias began wiggling like mad, having finally woken up and realized they were finally on the ground, exclaiming sharply, "M-mum!" She set to work quickly and efficiently removing the extra, warm and padded clothing she afforded for the boy to travel high above the clouds, and the blindfold across the young boy's eyes. He finally settled down flat on his rump on the ground with all the annoyance a 3yr old could muster, picking at his flannel shirt aggressively. The young woman sighed, finding it really no use to reason with him until he was a little less grumpy, turned away back to the saddle, and began unloading their luggage and Orion's saddle unto the porch while leaving the groceries on the lawn.... Orion, now free, snorted inquiringly, so Seraphina prodded Ilias' until he looked back up her with a full-lipped pout and his brilliant blue eyes such different than her own blazing. "Do you want to go swimming with Orion, or to the kitchens with me?" The boy's inner fire seemed to dim at the question, looking between the waiting Pegasi and his mother his pout slowly transforming into a frown. She repeated, slower, "Swim or kitchen?" "Swim!" Ilias yelped, as Orion swung his head down, nuzzling his muzzle into his arms with a hearty, wet-sounding snort. Giggling, from prickly whiskers tickling under his chin and cheeks, helped the frown jump to a crooked grin. "No-no horsey! Swim, no tickle." Seraphina watched the ongoing exchange between the two with a silent smile, that happened to reach her eyes and ease the tenseness out of her shoulders - watching Orion lead the way back down the gentle slope, with Ilias following by clinging to the Pegasi's tail that yanked him forward. The flying horse would be able to keep his attention long enough for a 'swim', the Gods blessed the steeds everlasting patience and steadfast trustworthiness no doubt; it was more than enough time for her to get the groceries into the kitchens, and have lunch back to her cabin by the time the three year-olds' stomach would start growling. It was best to get to it... Seraphina ducked down and rummaged through the groceries, consolidating what could be consolidated before layering her arms with the bags and set out away from her cabin. Eventually reaching the path, and Image nearing the duo to find one was recognizable, if not slightly disgruntled currently, David, a son of Hades; however, the girl was new, and even Seraphina in all her recent travels couldn't place where or if she'd met her or her family, but she could still easily feel the unease rolling off her. Which caused her to slow her approach, and step off the side of the path to widen the distance, as a precaution per say (with enough hotheads, and enough powers running rampant; it did make a girl smart in some ways) but also as a sign of idle respect in her eyes. "Good morning." She called out in pleasant greeting, with a gentle smile, and a friendly light to her eyes.

Interacting With: David Hughson and Seraphina Antoniou





Narissa saw that David was just looking at her with what seemed to be surprise and she sighed. "Well whatever your deal is I'm sure it's personal. But there's no pressure on my end. So you don't have to tell me anything you don't want. I'm not asking for that." Narissa pressed her lips into a thin line as she watched him. He seemed to be telling the truth and honestly there was no reason for him to lie. "Now if you'd like to resume the cabin hunt, I think I got the area for you." At that Narissa herself was kind of surprised. She stared at him for a moment and then nodded. "Thanks. And not only for helping me find a cabin but for not prying." She picked up her backpack as she spoke, kind of embarrassed by her outburst. "In all honesty the last few days have been pretty... stressful." She frowned at that before rolling her eyes. "And the flight from Cali to here was long with not much to do."

"Good Morning." Narissa's gaze moved to a brunette who was approaching them from the lake, bags of what seemed to be groceries on both arms. Grabbing her duffel bag and resting the strap on the opposite shoulder of her backpack Narissa's whole composure changed. The tension and any trace of irritation or displeasure disappeared from her body and a bright smile lit up her face. "Good Morning." Noticing she was in the center of the path still Narissa ave the woman a sheepish grin, stepping to the side in case the girl needed to pass. "Sorry, I'm new and David's trying to help me find a cabin."

As she explained the last few days had been stressful he nodded. He did not doubt particularly as new girl in the new environment with other demi-gods, things were stressful. That, plus her additional personal issues and the flight. He had patience for Narissa though. She'd forget about her stress soon enough and it would be replaced with the common demi-gods trying to tolerate each other and advance their own powers. He fiddled with the necklace Jennova gave him. Demi-god stresses were far worse than the common riff-raff. Your sister betraying your father for a born rival was ridiculous and stressful.

Hades was a man with an ambitious plan. It was always wise not to intervene.

"Good Morning," Seraphina greeted jumping off the path way for them. A hardly necessary act with the timid Narissa at the moment, but the more comfortable she got, he was willing to bet that would change. And that there was a wild side beyond random outbursts. "Morning," he said in turn.
"Sorry I'm new and David's trying to help me find a cabin." Narissa added. David smiled tightly. Anyone that knew him didn't see him as a helpful guy touring the new girl around from the good of his heart. But Narissa had said it so naturally.
"She knows you're new," he whispered to Narissa and smiled. He thought about leaving the two to get acquainted and for Seraphina to perhaps show Narissa to a cabin instead. She'd probably be a little more warm and mature. But still David stuck by her side.

He watched Andy tear into the vines and smiled a little. Such a lady but whatever it took for freedom so he wasn't judging. Too much.
Image"So... When is this going to become difficult?" Daniel got to smirk as she challenged for more. "You always been so competitive?" he wondered before she stated it was her turn again in the little witch off they were having. Daniel couldn't help but mirror the wicked grin and shuffle a little on his feet bracing for her next move.

Rather than the range spells and illusions he was used to, Andy ran straight for him. He stood a little straighter and broadened his chest, waiting for her to call chicken. Sure, she was a solid navy chick but any collision would hurt both parties. He braced for impact as she didn't slow and flinched a little before she ran straight through him. He shuddered. He didn't feel a thing but the idea of aspiration moving through him...

Daniel turned to see multiple Andys and his face fell. "But which one is me?" His lips pursed and his eyes narrowed eyeing each of them. Now this was a challenge. But one he was hoping to ace no less. Just when he thought he had found the solution, he heard, "Will the real Andy, please stand up?" from the voice of Ajax. Daniel shifted his gaze then looked back to the Andys and smiled. That probably meant sibling training session over and well done with. Have fun with charming He didn't know if telepathy was within their reach but it didn't hurt to send a snide remark here and there to Andy.

Daniel rolled his eyes and saluted his farewell for now to Andy and walked off. He didn't doubt there were other people to torment and see. One being, Alex apparently in the Greek Springs. He smiled for a moment before wolf whistling for her attention then grinned as he took a crossed legged seat near the edge. "What are you up to?"

The uneasy feelings, that Seraphina could feel radiating off the young blonde and seen in the tenseness of her shoulders, snapped away abruptly as her composure changed with a bright smile, stepping to the side of the pathway, and happily returned comment of, “Good Morning.” If she was anything but a daughter of Hera, she may have been disgruntled or curious while in silent observation about the sudden switch of emotions as if putting on a ‘show’; but it was all too much the reality for expected to be always helpful to everyone, and eagerly volunteering to be a part of the greeting (or farewell, funerals being the case) party for new demigods and their families alike – wearing a mask was natural, and Seraphina had yet to find such a reason to pull someone else’s down as of yet.

ImageMorning.” David, added in turn, as Seraphina eased to a unsteady stop beside the two – having additional room granted from the girl who’s smile had shifted to a sheepish grin, and had stepped to the side in case she had needed to pass (for which, she was grateful for the gesture). “Sorry, I’m new and David’s trying to help me find a cabin.” The new girl spoke up again, and despite the son of Hade’s conspiring whisper – yes, Seraphina could tell she was new. Especially by the mounds of luggage stacked around their feet, which usually was dropped off in advance of demigods arrival; but also, she couldn’t remember she’d ever personally met the girl or her family in preparation for the summer camp. Huh, odd.

How nice of him,” Seraphina paused, sparing David a glance. He, or any child of Hades, had never been practically seen as the ‘helpful’ sort out of the goodness of their hearts from most of the demigod community, but she tried to be open to all regardless of ‘parental’ issues or grudges. So, her brief nod, and the mix of silent respect and thankfulness reflected in her eyes, was genuine. Whether or not he took it, was up to him. She glanced back to the girl, all warmth and gentle smile, “Well, welcome to camp newbie. I’m Seraphina, one of the Camp Staff, daughter of Hera. If you need help later with anything, don’t be afraid to ask, but I do need to get these groceries out of the heat and help get lunch started for the ‘horde’ – so, I am sorry, I do need to run.” Seraphina idly mused, apologetic but businesslike in turn, her ‘sunshine’ undiminished. “Happy cabin hunting though, and if worse comes to worse you can always grab a Artemis or Hera’ cabin for the mean time until your more comfortable with the camp before making a more permanent cabin decision.

“She knows you’re new” David whispered to her and Narissa flinched and gave the woman a sheepish grin. “Oh yeah. Sorry.” Narissa noticed the woman had a perplexed look on her face and flinched a bit but hid it behind a bright smile. After a few moments, though it seemed a lot longer, the woman responded. “How nice of him.” The woman paused again and this time the pause in conversation was noticeable as she looked over at David. Despite this, after a few more moments of awkward silence the woman gave David a brief nod.

The moment passed and the woman’s attention returned once again to Narissa, her expression kind “Well, welcome to camp newbie. I’m Seraphina, one of the Camp Staff, daughter of Hera. If you need help later with anything, don’t be afraid to ask, but I do need to get these groceries out of the heat and help get lunch started for the ‘horde’ – so, I am sorry, I do need to run. Happy cabin hunting though, and if worse comes to worse you can always grab a Artemis or Hera cabin for the mean time until you're more comfortable with the camp before making a more permanent cabin decision.”
Narissa gave Seraphina a bright smile in response. “Thanks! It’s nice to meet you.” At the offer of an Artemis cabin Narissa giggled since that was exactly where David had just offered to bring her a few minutes ago and she nodded. “Thank you so much. Good luck with all the cooking!” With that Narissa turned to look at David, assuming Seraphina would be leaving to go put away groceries and cook lunch. “So, which way are we going?” As she spoke to him her smile became a bit less forced and more genuine, the expression reaching her eyes.

Location: Kitchen
Interacting With: Adrian Warhol


Melissa stared straight ahead at nothing, not even noticing Adrian as he came into the kitchen. As he moved around the kitchen her arms tightened around herself, a trail of tears still going down her face. At first, when Adrian sat a few feet away from her and started to play the bowl like a drum, Melissa didn’t even notice but as soon as Adrian started singing her posture changed. As a spark of recognition entered her eyes Mel blinked a few times, slowly, before looking around herself. It took all of two seconds for her eyes to land on Adrian and immediately Melissa let her arms fall down, her hands landing in her lap.
Melissa almost jumped up but instead she focused on the guy near her, her eyes widening with unconcealed shock. Adrian and her had never been best of friends in fact, Melissa had often avoided him as to not have her baking obsession discovered. Yet, here he was, singing to her in his kitchen as she cried. As the thought entered her mind the song ended and Adrian spoke up. Feeling better? Cause if not I could fly you around? It was then that Melissa’s mind caught up to reality, causing her to snap into focus. Jumping up Melissa opened her mouth to snap at Adrian but then stopped, torn by his kindness.
Turning away from him Melissa swiped at her face quickly, trying to rub away the tears as she glared down at the counter top, which was spattered with cookie dough. In most cases she would have snapped at him or ignored him but after Adrian being so nice Melissa was thrown off. Her voice coming out barely above a whisper Melissa replied. “I’m fine. I just…” Melissa trailed off and looked around for an excuse to give him.
Seeing the bowl broken on the floor she pointed to it without looking back at him, knowing that she still had tear-stained cheeks and glassy eyes from crying. “I broke the bowl. I’m sorry. I’ll pick up the mess…”

He felt the sparing gaze that held only for a moment on him oozed with judgement, causing him to harden his eyes a little. But soon Seraphina nodded as a sort of approval. David was still a little skeptical of her mind track but didn't bother himself much about it. This was likely to be only a minor exchange that wouldn't stretch out too long or seen much into. When he felt the girls conversation coming to their overly friendly kind end, he straightened up and forced a tight smile on his lips and nodded so as to prove his own goodbye to the daughter of Hera. Just because he didn't understand the need for perkiness and sunshine coming from both ladies didn't mean he had to be absent of his manners.

Narissa turned back to him, “So, which way are we going?” He sighed out gently and gestured right ahead. "Forward," he answered and led the way to Artemis's' cabins.

"So I was wondering..." he scanned for conversation with the new girl to fill in the silence. "How are you so happy all the time and energetic?" He half-laughed at himself for his bluntness. That could be seen as kind of rude. And what was the right answer in a question like that? 'My morning supplement shakes!?' David was genuinely curious about his question and where she summoned the effort from or felt the need to be happy all the time though. Misery and pain was part of the life cycle too.

Alex was all sorts of crazy beautiful and gorgeous and looking into those magnificent blue eyes and being able to keep her as close as she was....It was bliss. But still he didn't think it entirely wise to get too cosy with each other and like she had brought up, especially with the whole war coming. Daniel already knew the stubborn kind she could be.

She stumbled over her words and Daniel only smiled watching her and waiting for her to gather her mind. Daniel kissed her once more like she had asked with the most desirable little chuckle included. Their lips touched again, this time only a simple kiss, more like a peck. After all, she didn't specify. He flashed her a grin and climbed out returning to sit on the edge of the Springs instead.

He touched his lips maintaining his grin and shook himself out of it. "So I guess I'm gonna jump on your brother's 'to fry list'," he stated. "How do you match up against the semi- big guy anyway?" If Zeus was considered the big guy then Ajax had to be the semi one. He was older and slightly more experienced than Alex. And since Zeus was the apparent almighty , his offsprings thought themselves superior too. So semi- big guy would suffice.

After Narissa's multiple Thank yous', a Nice to meet you, a Good luck with all the cooking - Gods above, she could keep anyone on their toes apparently conversation wise - and Daniel's tight smile and nod of goodbye; Seraphina was finally 'free'. "I'll see you both later then," She hummed softly in simple farewell, and got on the move again... It did not take long, walking at an even pace and no one else on the trail to tell similar morning greeting's too, to reach the main building that housed the offices of the Camp Staff, the kitchens, and the 'mess hall' for the camp's meal times. It took far longer, however, after ignoring the light ache of her lower back to navigate the stairs up through the doors into the cafeteria and then into the kitchen, to move herself from her stunned frozen step across the boundary line as she observed the mess before her. ImageCookie dough had painted itself across a counter, cupboards, and floor tiles, and a shattered glass or plastic bowl lay in pieces under foot. Adrian already seemed to be handling it well enough, without need for intervention. Melissa seemed well, except for the faint tear tracks lining her cheeks, and was already offering to clean up her mess. So, Seraphina breathed an uneasy but relieved sigh, announcing her presence at the threshold with a genuine but gentle smile. "G'morning; Adrian, Melissa." She said lightly, her lips only slightly pursed. Before cautiously moving forward into the kitchen, watching her step, as she navigated across the debris with silent purpose to the large pantry to pile half of her bags there which consisted of non-perishables and placed the other half of perishables of meat or fresh vegetables/fruit unto a 'cleaner' corner of the counter until properly separated, divided, or cut up, and placed into refrigeration. She set herself to work, quietly putting things away into the organized pantry, quickly and efficiently - taking care to keep her muted curses about her height to a minimum, whenever she had to stretch to put something away.

OOC::|| @ UsernameGoesHere,
I don’t know if you still have Elsa Regions walking around the lake, but this is a response with Ilias’ as if she was still was.
Feel free to ignore, of course, if she has already finished her walk and has headed to the training grounds. Thank you~!

Ilias had a good morning so for, since, finally, reaching the ground. Orion and him had spent some time, ‘swimming’ in the shallows of the lakeshore nearby his mother’s cabin, before the pegasi was just too exhausted from the long journey they’d taken to continue going out to fetch the child whenever he’d gotten out into deeper water. The big black snorted, nudging gently at the small of the boy’s back, to continue moving him along – out of the swallow water, and unto the soft pebbled shore-line. Instead of pouting or causing a fuss, the boy had obliged. Upon reaching the dry shoreline, Orion had lied down, curling his limbs tightly underneath him but left his wings stretched out. Ilias observed with bright eyes, thoughtfully. "Scrub?” He finally gurgled, lake water still running down his chin from his soaked hair and hat. Orion flicked his ears in response, and it was an answer enough as the young boy wandered diligently away towards an old ice-chest nearby, and after cracking it open revealed a hearty handful of water toys, a first aid kit, and a bottles of what was probably sunscreen (but for him, it was close enough to shampoo for his needs). Ilias returned to the pegasi, with a sand castle bucket that he paused momentarily to fill with lake water and a bottle of ‘shampoo’ in hand, and set himself to work. If Orion had been any other color than black, Ilias might have accidentally dyed him a pinkish hue from using sunscreen as a shampoo. Regardless, the pegasi enjoyed the attention, snoozing peacefully and only opening a lazy yet watchful eye whenever Ilias left to get more water to wash him off… On one such trip, returning back to Orion, he noticed an approaching figure walking alongside the lake-shore. ImageIt wasn't anyone he immediately recognized from afar, or had been introduced to by his mother in the past weeks of her travels greeting new demigod families attending the Camp or one of the dourer funerals; but manners had been instilled, more or less (the terrible twos' had been rough, no doubt), in him by Seraphina' and so - A meaty fingered fist reached up to grasp his soggy hat and wave it a few times before plopping it back unto his dark mop, before calling out in greeting, "'Ello!" A small, crooked but friendly grin resting on his mouth.

Interacting With: Mel



As Adrian's song ended he stood, picking up the bowls he had taken down to play music on. He carefully put them back where he had found them and moved to clean the broken glass that Mel had said she was going to clean up. "No worries, darling." He spoke in a whisper. He looked at the gue of dough on the counter and then back up at her. "Why don't you finish what you have and then take the rest of the day off? I won't tell a soul." He smiled at her as he filled himself a glass of water and slowly drank, staring at her.

Adrian sat on a stool next to the table and watched Mel carefully. He knew she wasn't in the best conditions and he wanted to make sure she was going to be okay. "Or you could tell me what to do and I'll finish it." He suggested cocking his head to one side. Adrian looked to his feet as he started popping the cracks in his finger. Finger by finger, slowly as he could to make some kind of sound in the room around him. Adrian looked up when Seraphina walked into the kitchen , he nodded up at her, not realizing right away who she was but then standing up, knocking over his stool in the progress. "Sera! It's been a while!" He said as he wrapped his arms around her and gave her a big warm hug.

Interacting With: ...




Everything that was running through Jennova's head was a bit too much, she grasped the wine glass in her hand as she thought of how her life was about to fall apart. Evil spelled backwards was Live, however in all the stupid stories the heros always won, which meant she would die trying to win or she would win. If she played her cards right however, she could make Hades happy and just disappear. He wanted an army, so Jennova would give him an army. At whatever the cost was, however she would be very careful to trust certain people. She knew the Zeus offsprings were now her enemy. It didn't matter that she jumped in front of a blade for Ajax, he didn't care about her. Alex didn't care either, however no matter what happened in the past, nothing could change her destiny.

As Jennova thought of the people she truly cared about she grasped the wine bottle closely. Dave... Clare... Lilas... Adrian... Toby. Suddenly the wine bottle broke into pieces in her hand, however the woman didn't flinch, didn't drop the cup pieces, however the end of her glass fell to the ground, pieces falling into her pool. Warm liquid formed in her hand as she stared off into a distance, wondering what she was going to do about all those people she did care about. Would they join her? Did she even have friends or was she truly just the villain in everyone's eyes. Jennova looked down at the water, seeing her own reflection her heart broke into a million pieces. "You are a pathetic excuse of a person. Your death will be painful and slow." She whispered to the person staring back at her.

Interacting With: Adrian Warhol and Seraphina Antoniou


Melissa moved to go get a sponge and some other things to clean up the mess with as Adrian responded. "No worries, darling." Coming back with the stuff to clean up the mess Melissa started by pulling the trashcan over, starting to scoop up the splattered cookie dough and toss it into the garbage. "Why don't you finish what you have and then take the rest of the day off? I won't tell a soul. Or you could tell me what to do and I'll finish it." Melissa stopped and stared at him for a second a bit shocked but before she could answer the timer for the oven went off and she rose, grabbed oven mits and took out the two trays. Placing them on a clean counter Melissa grabbed the other two cookie trays she had finished before her freak out and put them in, setting the time once again. Turning back to Adrian, who had started to crack his knuckles, Melissa went to respond but Seraphina walked into the kitchen and she stopped. "G'morning; Adrian, Melissa." As Melissa wondered how long Sera had been standing there Adrian jumped from his stool, knocking it over, as he went to give her a hug. "Sera! It's been a while!" Both of them now in the pantry Melissa swiped away the remaining tears on her face and picked up Adrian's stool before returning to picking up her mess in silence.

Interacting With: Theo Smith

Narissa didn't notice the other person until she had taken another few steps into the cabin. She was still staring up at the staircase and tree in amazement when the other demi-god spoke. "Well hello there." Jumping a bit Narissa's eyes flew to the other person in the room and she took a step back. Seeing the male shirtless with a toothbrush in hand and a smirk on his face, Narissa chuckled a bit, even as she looked him over appreciatively. Then, seeming to remember where she was and what she was doing she winced and gave him a sheepish smile. "I'm guessing this is your cabin?" She asked, taking another step back so that she was closer to the door. 'Good job Narissa, you managed to walk into the one cabin that was occupied. Hopefully he's not the type to freak out about it... he seems laid back enough...' Shaking her head, Narissa focused her attention back on the other person in the room.

Seraphina fully expected to have a quick, quiet moment, finishing placing the last few items within the pantry shelves, while Adrian spoke with Melissa about offering to help finish the cleaning and cooking for her – accompanied with the familiar sounds of the squeaking of the hinges of the oven door being opened and closed as batches of finished and waiting to be cooked cookies were exchanged. However, the mighty crash, from Adrian’s wooden stool being knocked over in some apparent rush, was enough to make her flinch with a sharp jerk of her shoulders. Gods above, what in the world! She paused momentarily, to peer warily, but inquisitively into the kitchen – only to be greeted with Adrian’s examination of “Sera! It’s been a while!” before being ‘swallowed’ (to be fair, he was at the very least a foot taller, and certainly more heftier than she was or would ever be) in one of his big, warm hugs, with an indignant, muffled, “Oh!

ImageAll though… It’d been a while? Well, Seraphina had only officially been gone two weeks, meeting and greeting the families of new demigods, making sure they’d be arriving in good order, and attending the latest funeral – which had made her a day late to the official opening of the summer camp. No, would be the correct, technical answer; but since the pair were a part of the small handful that tended to spend all year at the campgrounds’ – two weeks was a long time, especially for demigods, or old friends for that matter. So, she let the hug last a little longer than she normally would have, or had the patience for in dispelling her strong distaste of tight, dark, and/or confining spaces. Such things were hard to come by, even on good days…

Sera pulled back, finally free with a soft smile, "Ari, you do know in the interest of breathing, you really shouldn't squeeze so tightly when hugging?" She chided, gently; her tone of voice echoing the unsaid words of being thankful to be 'home' again and it was good to see him too - trusting he'd understand the meaning well enough. "Now shoo," She started lightly, waving the fingers of one hand towards him in a brushing away gesture, her friendly smile undiminished. "This pantry really isn't meant for this, and I've got groceries to finish putting away - before, I'll take lunch duty?" She offered, as it was only fair for her turn to begin since he'd already gotten most of 4-meals ready for the camp since it started already. Seraphina's warm eyes left his momentarily, to glance around him at Melissa silent but diligently still cleaning up the mess, she spared her a thankful and apologetic glance. The girl had had a rough life, and physical contact (especially from guys') was still a giant NO for the daughter of Ares - so Sera didn't want to upset Melissa with anymore unnecessary contact (even not directed towards her - bless Adrian's heart of course, but he did look awful bear-like when hugging), and felt a little remorseful exposing her to it.

Ilias' small, crooked but friendly grin, had since faded into an annoyed frown as the approaching figure didn't acknowledge him, his greeting hello, or the waving of his soggy hat. Manners may have been instilled in him by his mother, and the rough terrible twos' were over with, but it still did not mean he liked to be paid no attention to. Before he could rattle off a piece of his mind or some lackluster insult, Orion's soft snort grabbed his attention first as the black pegasi pulled himself up to stand with a bobbing head in the direction of the kitchens, and food, and Mum... "Okay, horsey." He hummed, successfully distracted. Before reaching out to cling to the Pegasi's tail, that yanked him forward as Orion lead the way back up the gentle slope, passing his mother's and his own cabin, on a common camp track, and headed towards the kitchens as the light began to fade from the sky and the spitting of rain from above seemed to go away as quickly as it had come.

<--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->

It had been a long afternoon, after Adrian’s departure from the kitchen, busy with finishing stocking the panty, then chopping up the fresher items for refrigerator on the spare clean counter from the earlier cookie dough incident, and now finishing up an outdoor meal at the campfire tonight on her side of the kitchen – while Melissa finished up the cookie baking on the other side... ImageIt was a welcome distraction when Ilias finally appeared from his adventures ‘swimming’ in the lake, but unwelcoming in turn as Seraphina absently reached down to pick him up in greeting, only to freeze in instinctive motherly horror at the contact of wet, slime, and the strong odor of sunscreen, at the touch of her finger-tips. “You didn’t…” She muttered in fond exasperation, as Ilias piped up cheerfully in turn, “No!” “Not helping… Come on you,” Seraphina sighed, taking his hand to guide him through the kitchens and into the camp staff offices beyond. Upon entering her own office, she pulled open the bottom drawer of her desk, already prepared for such a situation with clothes for Ilias’ stuffed in it – she helped him get cleaned up and dressed in new, and more importantly DRY clothing, before returning to the kitchen to begin preparing items for travel from the kitchen to campfire with the boy hot on her heels... Eventually it was nearly time, with the sky growing dark as the sun started to pull lower on the horizon – and the skyline was decorated in sullen shades of purple and orange. Seraphina was more or less ready to go, but with Ilias underfoot wasn’t helping things move any more smoothly – so she grabbed a small basket already stuffed with rolls, that could handle the less than gentle care a three year-old might give them, before putting it into his meaty hands. ImageIlias, darling, here... Hold it this way, Thank you. Could you take that to campfire tables? Please, it’ll be your job, okay?” “Job? Ok, yes, mummy.” Ilias exuberantly finished as he departed the kitchens, which may or not have also made a chorus of heavy thumps down the stairway – causing her to wince, before calling out gentle, “Do be careful, and Orion…” A distant nicker sounded off in response, Thank the gods she could trust the winged horse to get her son and the rolls headed in the right direction... As the began to load up her own arms, which looking at it all she did not doubt the need to return for a second trip, unless - she spared a glance to her thus-far silent cooking / baking companion with a soft smile, that was one-part apologetic for Ilias' intrusion earlier. "Hey, Melissa, are you headed to the campfire tonight?"

Daughter of Zeus




"I know you'll try even if I ask you not to. You, your brother, even Andy... You all are very selfless people. I'd just hate to see you die saving someone who wouldn't return the favor." Alex looked down to her feet for a second, shifting her weight slightly. Wes was right, there was no doubt plenty of people in camp that wouldn't do the same, they'd much prefer to just save their own skins, but Alex was the type of girl who tried to see good in everyone. Except for David. That guy was walking in his fathers footsteps too closely for her liking. Now he could redeem himself, prove himself to not be such a bad guy, but with his father being the enemy of her own.. trust was always going to be an issue. "You're right. I know others can protect themselves, but I'm scared of losing Daniel, you, my brother." Alex sighed gently, and hugged his arm in a little squeeze as they walked towards the direction on Trinity and Daniel. That little squeeze was a, 'I don't want to lose you'. Alex had always been an out cast to people who weren't Demigods, so she never had a friend, not once. Now she did, and she didn't want to lose that.

"What?" He lightly nudged her playfully, causing her to stumble gently and laughing. "You, you dork." she joked with a smirk while nudging him back with a little bump of her elbow. Their walk was enjoyable back to camp, because the view they were sharing right now, definitely was a sight you didn't want to miss. "Yeah, if only. Storms are nice too.. at least to me and my brother anyway." for obvious reasons. Storms gave the Valis siblings even more power, and she couldn't lie.. it felt AMAZING!

Alex now looked over to Daniel once they got to them, and he had Trinity pinned. "Don't make me split the both of you up." she joked towards Daniel mainly as she unhooked her arm from Wes gently. For second, she began to walk backwards with Daniel behind her as she mouthed a thank you to Wes for listening to her and helping to straighten out her head. She turned on her heel after, then carried on heading on over to Daniel with the corner of her lips turning up into a bright, warm, and welcoming smile. She was happy to see his face again, and it amused her how he always loved getting himself into situations, or causing trouble in general with little tricks of his. "Come on, let her go."

son of Zeus




"You can't protect everyone Ajax... And I..."

She didn't have to finish, he knew exactly what she was trying to say. He couldn't promise his own safety, but he'd try his damn hardest to keep himself breathing for her, his sister, and his friends.

While walking with Andy, their conversation about Daniel carried on as they passed their woodland surroundings down the path that would lead them right back into the camp. "I don't think so. He seems rather sure of himself, and wouldn't do anything he didn't want to. So I don't think he'd be acting like he does with Alex if he didn't feel that way." She definitely had a good point. "I'm sure he's wondering the same thing about you." Definitely a good point. Ajax smiled. "Yeah, guess so. He'll definitely know how I feel about Alex's protection then." In no time they were also back at the camp not long after Alex and Wes, but Ajax wasn't going to hang around. "I'll catch you later, Andy.. I'm going to shower for tonight." he hugged his sister as he passed, then headed towards the Valis Cabin area.

He had a lot on his mind as he ran his hands back through his dark half Greek locks as he walked away from the small gathered group. He even passed Theos Cabin who was talking to one of the new girls, so Ajax nodded in their direction to acknowledge the both of them. Ajax knew one of the Staff members had also arrived, but where their current whereabouts were he had no idea. Hopefully they were preparing the delicious food for tonight like any other campfire night before. Ajax would of helped, but his head was too swamped.

"Hey..." Alex heard, causing her to look up. Andy walked to her, then bumped her shoulder into her, causing her to chuckle softly. "They're just guys." She leaned in to whisper softly, "Dress cute and he won't be able to ignore you even if he tried." Andy smiled towards Alex and gave her a wave before she jogged off towards her cabin. Alex was smiling too. She was right, and the thought of his face looking at her in the outfit would be picture perfect to her. Girls got major silly when it came to boys, so she got that perky little her back onto her feet before heading to her cabin. Hopefully her brother was in a good mood, because she didn't want him being the party pooper.

She had just gotten through the door, and placed her keys back into her pocket before looking towards her brother who had called out to her from hearing the front door. He had his towel around him still for now. "You're going to actually have fun tonight, right? because I want at least one normal stress free day. I don't fancy babysitting my big brother."

"You're going to actually have fun tonight, right? because I want at least one normal stress free day. I don't fancy babysitting my big brother." Ajax laughed because he knew exactly what she was on about. One time he had gotten drunk back at home, and Alex had to sit with him all night due to him drinking a little too much, but he was threatening to scale the roof naked, and knock on their neighbors doors. She couldn't blame him for celebrating with his friends like that, because that was the day he graduated from High school. It was the happiest day of his life as he hated it.. even if he was the most popular guy there.

"Al, I'm older now. I was young and stupid back then." He reminded her. "I know. Still funny though." they laughed and headed off to their rooms to get dressed.

Alex was all set, and she was excited a lot more now than she was before. She hadn't been to a beach party before, but her brother had told her about a couple he had been to, and they sounded like a lot of fun. Plus, Daniel was going to be there, her brother, and Wes. Her three most favorite guys on camp.

Hopefully the music wasn't going to be rap, that type of music really annoyed her because none of their lyrics made any sense at all, not to her at least. Anyway, she'd enjoy herself no matter what because no one likes a downer at a party. "Ready to head out?" she called out to her brother from outside his bedroom door. While waiting for him to respond, Alex made sure her makeup was looking alright in the mirror that hung on the wall in the lounge, and then checked her hair. She was looking G O R G E O U S.

"Ready to head out?"

Ajax finished up before heading out to where his sister was, his eyes looking her outfit over. "Al, bit short don't you think?" Alex rolled her eyes. It wasn't really short, but for brother standards it was as he would prefer her to be in a dress that covered her knees. "It's fine." Ajax wasn't convinced, but he dropped the subject and held out his arm for her. "If you say so. Lets go then before everyone starts having too much fun without us." They headed out the door together and began walking down towards the beach. They didn't need to lock their cabin up, because who exactly would want to climb a tall ass tree just to snoop around? yeah they had quite a lot of valuables, but surely no-one was dumb enough to steal from a Valis.

Anyway, they both soon arrived at the beach, and a couple of Demigods were already there with the campfire blazing. Drinks were on hand already, but there was no music or food yet. The staff would have it covered because Ajax could see one of the staff members in the kitchen when they passed it.

ImageWith or without Melissa's help...
One trip from the kitchen to the shore-line had only been enough for one basket of rolls and the drinks (alcoholic and not, from whiskey to apple juice there was something for everyone to enjoy one could hope) in their rolling ice-chests to make it there, and barely enough time to start a fire, and set up the tables, pillows, blankets around the fire but at enough of a distance to allow for dancing to occur. Seraphina had returned to the kitchens for the second trip to bring back most of the food - this, or that, or anything else in between - in their own travel containers stacked high but secure on a dented, rusty, and old radio flyer wagon; and retrieved from her office before locking it and heading out the door, 'J.E.F.F' - which was an old beat up stereo box some Hermes kid had stolen or a Hephaestus kid helped fix at some point in time, an Apollo kid (with some Hermes assistance) had acquired a couple mixed CDs (from all genres, to time-periods, and other things in between, a wide taste-basis anyhow) for it to rotate playing through during campfire nights, and no one really knew anymore what it's name' acronyms stood for anymore. "I think that's everything, Orion, Ilias, except..." She frowned for a moment, down at her own appearance thoughtfully. She'd spared herself the time in the morning before leaving the families' home of the demigod funeral she'd attended to get a shower, before leaving for groceries and to return home to camp finally after her two week long trip, so she was alright in that department; but her clothing was well travel-worn and she had not had the chance between arrival to setting up the campfire to change into something better serviceable for a party. Exhausted as she was from the long day so far, she still had one trick up her sleeve to solve that dilemma before anyone else saw her; a moment of concentration, and the clothing she studied shifted - the jacket, shirt, and pants changed into a beach-appropriate dress, the wrist watch became bangles, etc - the perks of 'camouflage'. She reached up to remove the African butterfly hair-clip that pinned up her hair into a messy bun, freeing the long curls and hopefully hiding her errant stray aways. "Ready." Orion snorted, before grasping the rope tied unto the handle, and began pulling; while Seraphina stayed beside the stacked food items, to keep their balance and keep them from falling; and Ilias brought up the rear, dragging an empty box behind him labeled 'shoes' (for those that preferred not to have sand in their shoes and socks, and could remove them at the separation of grass and sand if they wanted to).
<--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
Image

"Thank you Orion," Seraphina whispered as they arrived, and the black Pegasi nickered softly in return, before heading back into the shadows - more than likely to return to her cabin to graze, or nap - and would return later to help her clean up after the campfire. "Ilias, leave the shoe box there, and oh, here," She paused, slipping off her flats, that Ilias grasped in childish excitement to dunk into the box with his own tennies and socks with Nemo characters printed on them. "Now, you want to wait here? I'll come get you?" "Ook." Ilias hummed, as he sat down on his rump, picking at his shirt. While the boy was eager to meet and make new friends, the sheer amount of demigods already congregating (half of which were new that he hadn't meet yet, or didn't recognize right away in the darkness lit only by the campfire) made him nervous; and he liked the job of being 'in charge' of the shoe box... Seraphina knew him well enough, he'd prefer to wait for her return.

She grasped a armful of containers, before moving to one of the first nearby tables, that already had a couple demigods sitting around it - she already knew Daniel, and two others were new but she had probably met their mortal parents, had their paperwork in her office, and their names rattling around somewhere in her head - with a soft smile and nod of greeting, before getting down to business and began setting down and uncovering food items down upon it. It was quick enough work, "Ah. This feels spiritual. We should all hold hands and chant." "Or you could set up J.E.F.F... Unless sporadic shifts of spiritual silence and chanting suit your fancy better?" Seraphina murmured lightly in return, before breezing unto the next table - not patronizing, or demanding, but rather simply stating an obvious point gently. She'd get around to setting up the music eventually, but it would be a bit of time until then while she unloaded the little red wagon of food unto the tables. A quick mind could only get around so quickly with only having two hands...

"Alex." A Voice called out to her.

"Yeah?" Alex turned to look who was calling her name, and within seconds Trinity had wrapped her arm around her. "Have a drink with me. What's your poison?" Alex assumed she meant the Alcohol that the staff members had set up for them for tonight. "I've never really drank before.. what do you recommend?" Trinity was nice for a Daughter of Ares. It wasn't that Ares was a bad guy, it was just.. he was known for his blood lust and urges to go into war all the time. But anyway, she would be lying if she didn't admit to being confused right now. Alex and Trinity hadn't really spoken once since being here, but they did acknowledge each others existence from time to time, so that was something.

"I like fruits, but not oranges. Is there any fruity types of alcohol?" For some reason, Alex had the feeling that Trinity wasn't here to get to know the Thunder Girl, but to poke around about her best friend Wes. Of course Alex wouldn't mind helping her out if she was to question about him, because that's what Alex loves to do. She loves helping others.

His sister had been pulled away from him by the warrior blonde, leaving Ajax to wander off towards the beers before standing on his own for a moment as he looked around the campfire to see who else was here. Daniel was stood by himself just like him, so Ajax headed on over to him at first. He might as well talk to the one person in the world that his little sister chose to like. Personally, Ajax would of chosen someone else for her, but it wasn't up to him.

"Hey, Mr.Popular." He jokingly said, poking at Daniels loneliness. "I gotta ask.. what's your intentions with my sister? - just someone to have fun with, or do you actually have feelings for her?" what a conversation starter. Ajax was never good in that department if he was being honest. While waiting for Daniel to reply to him, he looked past him, and noticed that Andy was walking along the shore line by herself. He'd venture that way after he was done here. He took a drink from his bottle, but it was already empty, causing him to shake it a couple of times for a couple of drops that dripped out onto his tongue. He picked up another and opened it with no struggle at all, then offered one to Daniel. "Beer?"

"You do that. Last time I checked we're not Jamie and Cersei Lannister." Daniel cringed. "You went there..." he muttered to his sister before they parted.

He was quite content in staring into the fire, watching it lick and spit out little embers before Wes reapproached with an extra beer in hand. "Don't expect me to be singing kumbaya." Daniel was pleasantly surprised by the offer and accepted the beer as Wes' attention drifted elsewhere. "Hm. Cheers." He looked over the bottle before popping the cap open as Wes did.
Then he was approached by Seraphina. Not as much as approached as in the way of her briskly getting some further food and tables set-up. "Or you could set up J.E.F.F... Unless sporadic shifts of spiritual silence and chanting suit your fancy better?" Daniel rolled his eyes as she had commented then ran. "Where's the little guy?" He called over his shoulder. Though Daniel's life functioned perfectly find without little Ilias.

"Hey Mr Popular." This time, it was Ajax. "I gotta ask.. what's your intentions with my sister? - just someone to have fun with, or do you actually have feelings for her?" Before Daniel could even smile or comment that Ajax had a sense of humor, or offer to set up whatever the hell J.E.F.F was, Ajax spat it right out. Least he got to the point. Though he had to take note on how Ajax's eyes moved past Daniel. He turned a little then found the perfect little remark, although it didn't slow his beer consumption. He accepted Ajax's second one.

"You first." He took the first sip. No, he didn't miss the big goo-goo eyes Ajax had on his sister. But what he felt for Alex...he didn't like putting a label on anything.

Interacting With: Seraphina Antoniou-->N/A

After Adrian had left Melissa had cleaned up her mess in silence and made another batch of cookies to add to the ones already cooking. Melissa instinctively paying attention to everything going on in the room noticed that Seraphina had overloaded herself a bit. 'She should have asked Adrian to stay and help her... Making so many different types of food for so many people is going to be hard to keep up with...' During the time they were cooking Melissa tried to help a bit without Seraphina noticing; switching the trays of cookies just before the time went off, flipping burgers, and washing fruit, when her back was turned. Though Melissa doubted Seraphina didn't notice she felt better helping in small ways, unannounced. "Hey, Melissa, are you headed to the campfire tonight?" Though Melissa hadn't planned on going she was hungry so she figured she could go just to help carry stuff and then eat which is what she responded to Seraphina.

After helping carry everything she noticed Seraphina change but, after briefly looking at her clothing, decided her skinny jeans and black crop top were fine. Helping set up the bonfire area was easy and Melissa did so without being asked. Once everything was just right Melissa looked up and around to see that people had already started to show up, a few of them looking to have been there at least 5-10 minutes. Her gaze going from place to place Melissa noted her half sister in the crowd and the kids of Zeus as well. Satisfied with her work and knowing it would get crowded soon Melissa went to go stand by the bonfire, wanting a few moments before she forced herself to leave.

As she approached the large crackling fire she let her thoughts drift and didn’t even notice Wes until she was a few feet away. Her mind registering the sight of another person she immediately focused her thoughts only to visibly wince when she recognized the guy she had punched earlier. Despite the fact that he had to have seen her Melissa immediately turned on her heels, silently praying he would ignore her.

Interacting With: Theo Smith
At Theo's mention of the bonfire Narissa immediately brightened up, excitement shining in her eyes. "Really? I didn't think this was the type of place I'd be able to party at. Who knew." When the part about it being on the beach registered Narissa made sure her expression and demeanor didn't change. Following after him once Narissa reached the bottom and saw him grab a shirt she realized that she had never checked out that cabin. "Shit... I might have to meet you there. I still haven't found a cabin." Shaking her head at herself Narissa headed towards the door, secretly glad she had found a way out of it. "I guess I'll see you around?"

█▐ ♔┊"Well Alex, I'm sure you already know this but I'm a son of Artemis. And yes I'm enjoying the party. I actually just got here. Mommy dearest made me come." as he made a face at the words mommy dearest, Alex chuckled and smiled with her pearly whites on show. How come I feel like I've met him before? his next question broke her from her thoughts. "Hey you want a drink? I grabbed strawberry and grape... or you could help me finish off my vodka" Alex wasn't too keen on the Vodka. She had tasted it once before, but it needed some flavor to it. "You're adorable.. I'll take the strawberry please." she took it from him gently. "Thanks, handsome." she clinked her bottle against his, and took a drink from it with a slight smirk to the corner of her lips as her eyes remained on Theo's. Image

She could feel her brothers eyes burning into her, judging her for flirting with someone else. Confusion was probably on his mind at this point, because didn't she like Daniel? Alex had been ignored when she passed, she wasn't Daniel's girlfriend, so why couldn't she flirt with another guy? Daniel and Alex had no intentions of being anything but 'a thing' - if he wanted to flirt with some other chick at camp, then he could. Alex didn't own him or anything. Though she probably would be jealous.

Wes had put his right hand up to his mouth to grab Alex's attention. She turned to look at him, and saw him waving his hand for her to go towards the fire. "You coming, Theo? I heard truth or dare is going to be played. You can sit by me if you want to." she was excited for this game already, but a little worried about the truths. There was no way she was going to over share with the group. Some things had to remain secret.


Image Alex gently took Theo's hand, and lead him towards the campfire to join in the game with everyone else. Hopefully this was going to be all kinds of dares and truths. Alex was a daredevil just like her brother, so there was probably going to be no dare she wouldn't do. If they asked her to strip naked!? bring it on.

"Al, are you game?" her brother asked her once she was there, her hand still holding Theo's. "Hell yeah."

█▐ ♔┊Ajax had to admit, he wasn't liking how Theo took an interest in his little sister, and that Alex was flirting with him. Ajax heard that Theo was a bit of a womanizer. He expected it from Wes with him being the son of Aphrodite, so he had no choice to be that way.. but he wasn't Alex's father, and he couldn't tell any guy what to do, but if anyone hurt her!? then they'd soon learn and know the wrath of Zeus.

Ajax now knew that he preferred Daniel for Alex over anyone, because at least Daniel wasn't all over other women. He may be a little playful e.t.c, but his complicated feelings were for Alex mainly. "Hell yeah" she had replied to him, causing Ajax to smirk. His sister was always up for a challenge like him, and that in itself was a challenge because they would try outdo each other every time with practically anything. It had always gone on since they were kids.


Image Ajax left Daniel with Andy after giving her a smile, and wandered towards the campfire before taking his seat near Alex who was now waving Wes over to come sit with her and Theo. He couldn't believe his eyes when he saw the Hade's kids making their way over. He wasn't happy about their presence, but having them participate was going to make it even better. "So who's first? and is everyone here?" Ajax shouted while looking around at everyone gathered at the campfire so far. He was slightly drunk already, but at least he wasn't too drunk like a few years back when Alex had to look after him.

█▐ ♔┊The look on his face said it all. She could tell that he was going to brew up a dare that was going to be epic, and she couldn't take it back. Not now. He grinned at her words. "But of course you'd choose dare... I figured as much." as he finished his drink, he held his gaze on her causing her to twist her jaw slightly as she held her eyes on his and smiling. The pit of her stomach was regretting her choice, but she wouldn't back down. It's not in a Valis to back down.

ImageWhen he addressed her brother, every inkling she had was confirmed. This dare was going to be a tough one. Maybe Wes was going to come up with a dare that even a Valis would refuse? "Alex my dear friend. Thank god you wore a dress." He winked towards her. Uh-Oh. "I dare you... To remove your panties and hand them off to whomever of your choosing." Alex laughed and covered her face with her hands as she hunched over a little, then flicked her head back up with her hair following. Wes had chuckled while resting his hands in his lap as he patiently waits.

She glanced to her brother who gave her a look of 'I'm not pleased with this one' but it was only a game. Screw it. "You're on.." she told him confidently, then stood up to her feet in-front of everyone, and slipped her hands under her dress discreetly before wiggling her hips a little with her toosh whilst sliding her panties all the way down, then carefully stepped out of them without showing... parts. Now who to hand them to? Ajax hadn't watched at all, he couldn't, so he just took another drink from his beer while glancing around at the others.

Without a seconds thought, Alex handed her panties to Wes. She was smirking as she dangled them in-front of him, swinging them from side to side. Bet no-one was expecting that though.

█▐ ♔┊When he saw the shock on others faces, he looked to see who his sister had chosen. Wow. Plot twist! he leaned back slightly against the tree behind him with his right shoulder against the trunk as he watched the rest of the game silently. It was Alex's turn to pick someone to ask now. "Truth, or dare?" he heard her asking Andy. The other would get their turn no doubt, but they'd be lucky if they didn't because you were kind of on the spot for coming up with something decent, or fun.

Image It was going to be tough for him for a while since he needed to get the image of his sisters panties out of his damn head. That isn't in some weird incest way where he finds it.. he just didn't want that image in his head. Period. Scarred for life. No doubt it would be other guys greatest day to know that Alex wears lace underwear. In red.

Anyway, his eyes were trained on Andy to see what she'd pick.

█▐ ♔┊The look on his face that was taken by surprise when he saw the red laced fabric dangling in front of him, was the perfect picture. He did a double take while laughing, and she could of sworn she saw his cheeks flush a little red. Perfect. As he began to clear his throat before taking another drink, Alex was trying so damn hard not to grin with laughter. She had turned his dare right back on him, but she was impressed with how well he dealt with it. He had reached out to take the panties from her. "Well that was a plot twist..." As he shifted in his seat, he slipped them into his pocket. "I may have to frame these." Wes teased. "Pervert." she laughed while saying it.

Image Then turned her attention onto Andy who had picked dare. Alex didn't want to put the girl on the spot like this, but she didn't want to seem predictable by picking the one guy she really liked. "Okay, don't hate me for this.." she cringed slightly before taking a mouthful of her drink and swallowing it before giving the dare. "I dare you.." she looked around the campfire at the other players. "..to kiss Trinity. On the lips." Alex was going to say David first, but this was more entertaining for the boys. Especially Wes no doubt. "Sorry.." she added while looking to Trinity, then Andy.

To be fair, it was the only dare she could think of that popped up in the top of her head, and this game wouldn't be fun if there weren't any challenging dares involved.

█▐ ♔┊Ajax let the panties framed comment go as he didn't want to spoil their night of fun and games, so instead he went around handing out drinks to those who had just arrived, and those who hadn't managed to grab a drink yet before wandering over to Sera. "You need any help?" he offered, and then ruffled her sons hair with his hand, smiling down at the little man.

Image

It was a bit unfair at the moment that Camp Athens was understaffed, and Ajax had been here long enough to know enough about the place to even apply as a staff member himself, but he didn't have the time with training and looking out for his little sister who in his eyes!? was still the baby of the family.

Daughter of Poseidon || Thoughts || Dialogue || Mood: Cautious

A roar of noise sounded from the general location of the fire. Her curiosity and want to rejoin the group had gotten the best of her. "Fuck it," she mumbled to her self. It was either now or more of this brooding nonsense. Fixing her hair atop her head she ventured over to the beach. Briefly she thought of how they would all react to her sudden appearance. It wasn't exactly like she had given a formal goodbye in the first place. Perhaps they wouldn't even recognize her. Maybe this is a good fresh start.
ImageInstead of walking all around the lake and through the dense woods, she decided to just walk over the water. Being Poseidon's daughter came in handy in more than just for the obvious reasons. What was she even going to say when she approached them all. For sure they were probably already in the middle of a rowdy conversation by the jeers and laughs she heard. Maybe she should just turn around and try again tomorrow. No. Her pride wouldn't allow her to sulk back to her cabin. This was happening now.
As she approached the group she saw some familiar faces and some new ones. And she saw underwear. This was a whole lot more than what she expected. She also heard something about truth or dare. "This looks interesting... hi everyone," she said bashfully from the outer region of the group. Looking over to a cooler she grabbed a beer and made her way closer. "I really need this," she said before taking a swing. A little liquid courage never hurt.

Finally with the food settled, and J.E.F.F plugged in - causing music to rumble softly in the background of the majority of the party playing a fun, "unsupervised" game of Truth-or-Dare; that she'd ultimately turn up louder, once everyone wanted to actually dance. Seraphina was ultimately exhausted, over loaded and over-extending herself most probably - despite the wonderful help Melissa had silently provided without being asked earlier - but satisfied and glad that at least for a time of the night, everything was done and she was able to relax and let a little weight off her shoulders. She'd collected Ilias from his seat next to the shoe box, and brought him over to a table and a pillow to sit down on - setting up a small paper plate with finger food he'd eat in front of him, that he happily tucked into with a gusto. She departed then momentarily to the icebox, fetching a two boxes of apple juice for him and a couple bottles of hard cider for herself; and upon returning sat down beside the boy with a sigh, passing him his apple juices with a food-muffled thank-you in return, before popping the cap to one of her hard cider's - watching Ilias' eat out of the corner of her eye, and lightly observing the party's ongoing True-or-Dare game with lackluster interest.
Image
Image


"You need any help?" Seraphina glanced up at the son of Zeus appearance from the coolers where he'd been getting drinks for newcomers to the party, with a soft, grateful smile. It was the truth that Ajax and her hadn't gotten along much at first, but the mutual respect they gained for one another over the years - made his offer very genuine, even though he wouldn't be a camp staff willingly with training and his baby sister (who, if she remembered correctly, should've been coming to camp for this summer for the first time). Before she could answer, however, Ilias turned as Ajax had reached down to ruffle her son's hair with a smile, and he piped up an excited, "Ja-ay!" Mouth full of food and all, Seraphina sighed, gently, "Shush, not when your eating..." Ilias had the ability to look one part bashfully embarrassed, and the other decidedly rebellious; before turning back to his food with gusto. Seraphina then considered Ajax's question, and responded shortly, "Any help with clean-up or walking back the newbies (quite possible not accustomed to the amount of alcohol the seniors could shovel) would be greatly appreciated." She mused, evenly, even as Ajax whirled back to look at the game, looking intent; Seraphina idly glanced around him, seeing nothing of note, well, except for apparently the son of Hades, David actually (the same that had been being rather helpful showing that new girl, Narissa, around earlier), had been chosen for a dare - sighing, she looked away, glancing back to Ilias still happily reabsorbed in his meal, took an idle sip of her cider. Before continuing with a well meaning cough of attention-getting, humming after an "Easy there." Yes, she certainty could understand the misgivings between Hades and Zeus, BUT with such a game as this... Ajax could let a little slide, she thought.

█▐ ♔┊During David's lap dance on Narissa, Alex thought he wasn't too bad at it. She wasn't a pro at dancing or anything, that was just her opinion, but she still hated his guts. It wasn't long before she looked away, her eyes now on Wes who she had noticed a change of mood wash over him. He was tense in his seat. Her eyes followed to where he was looking, and she could see that Theo had wandered on over to Trinity. Now she knew what was going on with her bestie. Even though he wasn't her boyfriend, he truly liked her, so he had the right to be jealous. Maybe Theo knew Wes liked her, so now he was getting his own back for the cock blocking. Who knows.

Image While keeping her gaze on Theo, she spoke to Wes who remained beside her. "I wouldn't worry.. you're everything he's not." she now turned her gaze on Wes. "Trinity isn't the type of girl who is easily swayed by just any guy. She is the daughter of Ares, and that makes her tougher than coffin nails." even though she was saying it to comfort him, those words were the truth. One gift from being the Daughter of Zeus, was knowing about others like their father did. He did after all create the other Gods, but not Hades, or Poseidon.

After a while she was looking at Daniel. He was having fun, and didn't even seem to really notice her as far as she knew. Earlier he had ignored her, or maybe he hadn't heard her!? either way, it hurt a little to not be noticed by the one you like the most on Camp. She drank her beer, then placed it down on the sand by her feet before folding both of her arms as she waited for the game to move on to someone else.

█▐ ♔┊"Shush, not when your eating..." Ajax watched the little boys reaction to his mums words. He looked embarrassed, but Ajax didn't mind. He rubbed the little guys back. "Any help with clean-up or walking back the newbies (quite possible not accustomed to the amount of alcohol the seniors could shovel) would be greatly appreciated." "I'll help you clean up a couple of things, that's no problem" he smiled. "Hey, little guy.." Ajax crouched down to his level so he didn't look so intimidating. "If it's okay with, mummy, how about I show you something real cool tomorrow, huh?" Ajax had to do something for him, because a Camp like this really wasn't a place for his age, but he didn't question Sera about it. Not once. That was her business, and her business alone.

Image Ajax couldn't believe that David was grinding up on the new girl. Hopefully she wouldn't be too freaked out to the point of wanting to pack and leave already. She hadn't been here long. Literally. Once done with cleaning up a little for Sera, Ajax headed on over towards Andy after downing another drink. He was drunk for sure. "Hey, beautiful!" he called out to her while taking off one of the other demigods hats as he passed, and placed it on his head while dancing sexily towards her to tease her. He was even taking off his shirt like a male stripper, showing off his toned, muscular and tanned body. He tossed his shirt to the side which landed on someones head, and once close enough to Andy!? He took off the hat, placed it on her head, and began to do a little dance right there on the spot, "Boom!" He shouted, then began laughing with a grin.

"Hey beautiful!" Daniel's attention shifted from laughing at Andy challenging David again, to the strip tease Ajax had going on. And he was prowling for his sister no less. It was like witnessing a drunk mating dance and Daniel couldn't do it. He practically shot out of his seat and moved around the other side of the fire so he didn't have to catch a glimpse of it used on Andy.
Image
He found himself near the daughter of Poseidon based on her demonstration of powers. "You got a 'commonly known as' name to share yet?" Daniel asked. "Or am I really that untrustworthy?" He looked her over once. Sure he had a renowned title of being a trickster but what was in a name? "Unless you like being referred to as little mermaid or Ariel. Suits me fine." He shrugged and smiled.

ImageAndy questioned him following through his dare, making him glare daggers at Daniel and the girl that was really pushing her luck here. But thankfully, for once, a drunken AJ served as a distraction stripping off his clothes and making his way to Andy. Well somebody was keen for the dare he didn't get. David didn't know if he was drunk though, or drugged, he made that much a fool of himself.

Passing Jennova, he dropped off a comment. "So apparently seduction isn't my strong suite as much as it is his." Despite it being a big episode of 'what the hell is going on' , David sat beside Daniel and took another swig of his beer. "So do I still pick someone-" "Please." Daniel responded quickly.

"Okay..." He looked around the fire for his selection. "Melissa. Truth or dare?" He knew she'd probably be just as uncomfortable being dragged into the game. Which made it all the better.

"Plot twist" Melissa chuckled and took a drink from her bottle as David mulled over his options. As she let her attention drift Melissa focused back on her sister and the guy who was flirting with her. "So does that mean you're a returnee? Or just...above us." Melissa looked the guy over, searching her alcohol addled mind as to he was new or not. 'Nope... He's definitely new.' "Who? Me? Na, I'm not above anyone. I just don't like routine and organization, ya know? Plus mummy dearest didn't inform me that there would be gorgeous girls like you here." Melissa coughed on air as she tried not to laugh at his obvious flirting. While he definitely wouldn't be the first to flirt with Trinity he obviously didn't know much about the other demigods. Telling a child of Ares might give you a point or two towards ego but it wasn't all that important.
"Hello fellow camp mates! I've brought refreshments!" "He with you?" Melissa looked in the direction the yell came from and started giggling. While there wasn't anything particularly funny about him or his statement Trinity's response to him was seemingly hilarious. "Nope never seen the guy before..." "Okay...hate to put you on the spot but I love it." Melissa's attention snapped back to David at his words. As he spoke Melissa's giggling died down and she took note of the grin on his face with unease. 'A child of Hades smiling at me? Let alone that it's David. This can't be good... "In order of lowest to highest, list the demigods on this beach now, you'd go out with. Or feel even remotely attracted to."

Before logical thought could take hold Melissa spoke to David, smirking at him. "David if you wanted to know if I liked you, you could have just asked." The teasing tone of her voice almost even surprised her. Most of her own friends had left camp the previous year to either train or live normal lives for the time being and she usually never gave people she didn't consider a friend the time of day. This being so others who have been in camp with her have rarely seen her act like anything other than a bitch. Her mind coming back to the present Melissa looked around the group in contemplation. "You know, technically those are two different questions but I'll let it slide." Her eyes got a wicked gleam in them and she laughed. "In fact, I'll answer them both." She knew that David had expected her to be unwilling or at least disgruntled but as she was starting to realize Melissa was too drunk to care. "It's nice to loosen up for once..." Taking a sip from the bottle in her lap she looked over the group again before meeting David's eyes. ”Being honest I’m extremely picky about who I date because dating means getting close to people and I obviously am not the best at that.” Thinking of her interaction with Wes that morning she raises her bottle and nudges her head in his direction before taking a drink from it. ”Case in point. Either way if I had to put everyone into a list lowest to highest based on whether I would date them….”

Melissa finally set down the bottle, looking around the campfire before pointing to her sister. ”Triney is number one, can’t date your sister. I mean unless you’re into that” Melissa cast a wide eyed, completely fake, apologetic look at David before grinning again. ”Sera would be second with Ajax as a close third. I don’t think I could deal with Mama and Papa Camp Athens as a partner, no matter how much I get along with them. Andy would be fourth, not really my type… too nice from what I’ve seen. The blonde you just molested would be fifth. Seems a bit catty but I’m not really one for mood swings. The brunette, Viviane I think? She would be sixth. Seventh would be the guy flirting with my sister closely followed by the guy who brought more booze. Jenn would be ninth, Daniel tenth, and Wes would be eleventh. And you would be twelth with Ajax’s kid sister being thirteen. She’s cute and fiesty. Plus I’ve always had a thing for brunettes.” Grabbing her bottle she took a quick drink from it before continuing.

"As for pure Sexual attraction from Lowest to Highest would be Sera, Ajax, Andy, the blonde you just molested, Viviane, Daniel, Jenn, the guy flirting with my sister, Trinity, Ajax's kid sister, the guy who just brought more booze, Wes, and you, David.” Melissa then stood up quickly, almost falling over, and took a bow. ”Complete!” As she rose Melissa winked at David before laughing and sitting back down.

Image█▐ ♔┊He had been searching for his little sister the moment she wasn't at the cabin, and his stomach flipped with worry. Of course he knew she was capable of handling herself, but not as well as Ajax could because she hadn't trained as much as him. She was new to everything. At this point, he was blaming himself for not going after her. He had stayed with Andy because she was calming him down for a good reason, but he should of left and gone after Alex.

ImageIt wasn't long until he was facing Hades himself, causing Ajax to charge up a bolt with his right hand, ready to throw it at his Fathers enemy, who naturally also became his own enemy. "You're not welcome here.. get out." he warned, but it only caused Hades to laugh. "You're definitely like your father.. foolish." with a swift movement of the staff he was holding in his hand, he knocked Ajax to the ground like he was nothing. "You forget that you're not a God. I am much stronger than you'll ever be.. unless of course you take your Fathers place at the throne, but that, isn't going to happen. I plan on killing your father myself. After everything he's done to me, he deserves nothing more than a eternity of Darkness." Ajax slowly stumbled to his feet. "You won't get away with this.. I'll kill you before you even get a chance of getting close to my father." Hades smirked. He loved a challenge. His staff lit up, and as black smoke circled around them, Ajax looked to his sister who had ran out of the cabin.

He furrowed his brows at her because he wasn't even sure if he'd be back this time.

█▐ ♔┊Alex wasn't expecting Melissa to come after her, or anyone at all to be honest. She as originally just heading home to call it a night as she couldn't be bothered to stand up to an asshole who didn't know her, and the words coming out of his mouth weren't true anyway, so was there any point in being defensive about it? no, there wasn't.

Image Alex really didn't need the speech from Mel, but she knew that she meant well and was just trying to help her feel better, but Alex was resilient. "I know you mean well, and I really appreciate everything, Mel, but yeah.. I just want to be alone for now." she told her calmly as the girl was slightly confused as to which way she needed to go for her cabin. Alex chuckled. "Mel..." Alex then pointed in the direction to the girls cabin. "That way.." hopefully she wouldn't get lost, and hopefully she wouldn't wander passed the invisible barrier that was only seen by Demigods. It also protected them from the threats outside of camp, but now and again, something found its way inside. How? who knows.

ImageOnce Mel was gone, Alex headed inside. She was hoping that her brother was okay, because from what she heard!? that Apollo kid almost got a short life span. How could he be so stupid to go up against two of Zeus's children? eh, who cares.. it's over and done with. "AJ, you want something to ea--" she cut off from her question, and froze on the spot. He wasn't even in his room. She went to his window to see if he was anywhere close by, and noticed that he was heading up towards the cabin. He must of been out looking for her. She smiled at that. He was never going to change no matter how old Alex got. Her smile soon faded though, because out of nowhere, Hades had grabbed her brother. "AJAX!!!!" she screamed at the top of her lungs.

She sprinted outside as fast as she could to stop him, but soon as she got to them, Ajax looked to her before Hades vanished with him. "NOOO!!!" she screamed, then stood there crying. It was her fault, she knew it. If only she had been at the cabin before him, then he'd of known where she was. But she hadn't been too far away, so maybe they had just missed each other some how? she didn't know what to do at the point, but she ran through camp yelling into the night. "HELP!! SOMEBODY HELP. PLEASE!" she loudly begged before deciding to run towards Andy's cabin which was the closest. Once there!? she began to knock on the door frantically while out of breath. She didn't like waking people up, but this, was an emergency.

Alex: #D63B71Teal for thoughts.

Image With Viviane now working along side the raging storm, they managed to fry the beast instantly to death. You could slightly feel sorry for it as it crashed to the ground, it was just doing what it had been told to do, but there was no time for weakness. It was either them, or the beast. Alex cut off the electricity, and the whirling winds began to slowly calm as she hovered down towards the ground, her feet gently touching the Earth. She was trembling slightly, but not out of fear. Without a word to anyone, Alex headed through the small crowd of gathered demigods as she made her way back towards camp. Her eyes hadn't even searched for Daniel, or anyone else that she considered her friend, because right now!? her entire world was closing in on itself, and Alex was falling along with it.

She could feel others eyes upon her, probably wondering why she was alone, and why her brother hadn't been the one to protect them seeing as that was his job. But they didn't know yet.. they didn't know anything. Alex paused for a second, she hadn't gotten out of the others sight, not completely. She turned to them while standing on a small embankment, looking down at them. She sighed heavily down both of her slender nostrils. Her eyes were taking in each of their faces as she spoke clearly to them all. "Listen up.. I'm not in-charge here, but I need everyone to make their way to the main hut and.. grab a seat. I got some news for everyone." she did her very best to not break down there and there, or to have her screaming out in agony all over again with tears streaming out of her eyes. "Please." she added, then turned back around to the direction she had been heading off into before addressing the entire camp.

||#8080FF...SERAPHINA OUTFIT...||...ILIAS OUTFIT...#40BFFF||
Seraphina was frustrated. She knew it to be partially a product of her godly blood-line’s desire for all of their extended family members to get along properly, but also of her mortal blood burning with a tightly controlled fear of what would ultimately happen to them all (as mortals, if they never did get the chance to ascend, and take their parents’ places). They already had one war to prepare for, against the Titans, and yet, a final straw must have gone to the final breaking point between the brothers rivalry, for Hades to be lashing out so vehemently against Zeus, his children, and any who happened to caught in the way. They’d already had a Minotaur and a Hydra breach the boundaries, Ajax had apparently been pronounced dead and was up and walking shortly afterward not quite right but alive somehow (the terrified staff member had told her, who even didn’t want to leave her cabin after the fright), new campers had lost their cabin homes or had been tortured black, blue, and bloody; on, and on, and on the list seemed to grow! And it was just a handful of days into a relatively peaceful summer camp, which was a beacon of safe haven and training ground for all those birthed by gods (or legacies of) to learn to fight, to protect themselves, and to control their given powers (whatever those might be). Would it be much longer before the family feud of the most deadly kind cause a strain within in the camp itself, or Gods’ forbid them having to choose sides and expecting their children to do the same? “Mum?” Sera shook her head, and the rattling thoughts away with the motion (it would not do to settle on such negativity until faced with it in hand, heart, or head). Turning away from washing the dishes in the sink, to curious glance towards Ilias where he stood on the boundary of the kitchen and the main eating hall with a kind smile. “Stuffing is here.” She blinked at that, hiding the amusement with a well-timed sigh. While he was being without a doubt helpful, but without being properly introduced, or given a name, many newcomers to the camp were automatically ‘stuffing’ – as in the seniors usually ‘beat the stuffing’ out of the newbies in certain events or classes, a remnant of his Uncle’s ‘teachings’ – to her young son; and while funny, and potentially accurate-ish, it wasn’t right either. “Thank you, Ilias, but his name is Wesley Preston, Wesley, not stuffing.” Seraphina hummed, pointedly, as she withdrew her hands from the now draining dirty water and dried them on the nearby dishtowel. Ilias looked thoughtful at that, but didn’t comment either which could have been good or ‘eh’ – either was better than a refusal, she’d learned. She turned to grab a box off the counter nearby, one which had a few clothes folded neatly within – they had been Mikael’s that she’d held unto for little more than sentimental reasons but now they had a purpose she could reason, and while it might be a bit tight around the shoulders, it was better than nothing than the ones’ the poor newbie had on his back for now until better arrangements could be made – and a small folded map on top which showed the cabins still available (they would eventually rebuild his original cabin that had been burned down, but it could be some time until it was finished). “Wait here, I’ll be right back.” Seraphina mused, gently, as she squeezed past Ilias’ watchful position, ignoring his jealous frown. For the prime time of breakfast rush, the room was sparse even though the food looked well picked at already, she easily found the table with the newcomer Wesley, and he did look older than most that came to camp as first timers which was easier to note on, already in the midst of a conversation with Trinity. Not one to interrupt an ongoing conversation, Sera placed the box at the edge of the table-top, giving both other demigods a warm nod, and a muted, “Morning.” Before turning on a heel, snagging an apple from the breakfast bar on the way, and headed back to the kitchen - giving the apple to a happy but greedy Ilias, ruffling his hair fondly on the way. It wouldn't be much longer now, and she'd head out for training.

"War God." Wes sighed, before nodding his head slightly while pursing his lips. "But okay, since you don't want to get your ass kicked and wanna play fair, and are apparently okay with Ken. How do we deal with it? Flirt contest?" This suggestion coming from Trinity caused Wes to laugh. He then raised a brow, "Ken is more or less a compliment... So I'll take it." He chuckled softly. The fact was, she only called him Ken when he called her Blondie, so it wasn't even that often. "And who says I'm not always in a flirt contest?" Wes smirked. "You're just losing."

When Trinity stood up, Wes prepared to stand expecting that they were leaving. But then she moved around to sit beside him which made him smile slightly while also having a bit of confusion. "And would you mind if I asked how that happened? With your...ex, other woman? Unless you don't wanna go into it which is fine." She patted his hands which made him smile slightly before his gaze fell. "Then we can fight or arm wrestle or do anything you want." Wes rolled his eyes as Trinity over dramatically ate her yogurt, obviously trying to make a point that he should eat.

Wes sat there for a long moment staring down at his hands until he finally let out a sigh. "She... was my High School sweetheart. I planned on proposing to her about 2 years ago. I had this whole elaborate thing planned." He waved his hand as though that was no longer important. "Anyways... The day I was going to propose, I caught her... In bed with my best friend." He clapped his hands together, clearing his throat.

Thankfully before he was asked any questions about it or had to discuss it more Seraphina set down a box at the edge of the table. “Morning.” She then turned away and headed back to the kitchen. Wes reached around Trinity to grab the map and box. He lifted the lid of the box, smiling at the contents when he saw a few pieces of clothing. "I'll be right back." Wes walked towards the kitchen, knocking on the doorway. "Thanks..." He said it quietly but no less sincere. He then smiled down at Ilias, ruffling his hair before rejoining Trinity.

"So... wanna help me find a new cabin?" He held up the map. "Unless you want me to be your bunk buddy for the rest of the summer. Either way I am in desperate need of a shower. I don't know how you tolerate my presence smelling like this." Wes laughed.

"Your brother threw them in the lake? That's nice of him." David smiled which caused Andy to smile and laugh slightly. "He didn't want me to catch up to him when he went to find Ajax... He was mad." She was glad David didn't angrily shove her away or anything when she caught up to him. Andy was happy having a friend that was distanced from the whole Zeus crowd, especially after today's event.

"I don't know, Andy." Was David's response to her worries. Andy knew he didn't know, but it still scared her. "I can't presume to know him or what he'll do. But... We just gotta do what we can. Take it a day at a time and know we got each other in this." She nodded her head. If anything, Andy was glad she had someone in this with her. Not that she wanted him harmed or anything like that. But just having someone was better than being alone in this worry.

David grabbed her wrist, trying to smile as he poked her with the banana she held. The little gesture caused Andy's worried facade to fade and be replaced by a slight smile and little chuckle. "You could start by getting what strength you can in you. You've literally been tortured you know?" She raised her brows, "Wait... I was!?" She made an overly dramatic facial expression. "So that's where all the bruises and broken bones came from." Andy grinned before, peeling the banana and taking a bite. "Happy?" She took a couple more bites before looking back over towards him. "So what do you do all day? I haven't seen you training with the rest of us."

“Shit.” She chewed her inner cheek after Wes shared his heartbreak story. That was a tough blow. Trinity shouldn't have asked in the first place as she wasn't the most qualified for comforting people or opening up herself. She wasn't sure what to follow up with after that. What could she say? Did you beat your friend up for it? But thankfully, unlikely aid appeared in the shape of Seraphina who she smiled to in her brief visit. In and out with that woman, always busy about and dropping essentials for campers.

Wes leaned around her to get the box, and she smiled to herself. A simple excuse me could have done the trick, or asked her to pan it over but like a boy at Christmas, Wes was already opening up and smiling at the contents. "I'll be right back." “Sure.” She smiled to him a little before he left. Wes wasn't hunting for sympathy but she felt bad for the guy and let herself blow out a sigh. “Geez.” He must have fallen hard to want to propose, and that was how he got repaid. Trinity glanced to him as he ruffled little Illias's hair. The more she thought about it the more she disbelieved it. “What a tramp.” She muttered in conclusion to herself

"So... wanna help me find a new cabin? Unless you want me to be your bunk buddy for the rest of the summer. Either way I am in desperate need of a shower. I don't know how you tolerate my presence smelling like this." He laughed and Trinity glanced at the map in consideration. “Better not be my bunk bud all summer. Because you know, one day we're gonna wake up and decide we don't like each other anymore.” Trinity laughed gently at herself before drawing her attention back to the map. “Well where would you like to be?” Her finger circled the Poseidon's kids area, then looked to him questionably before it was yanked away.

Ajax decided to make his presence known and she frowned lightly as he winked and smirked her way. The son of Zeus who was something of an idol, was up to something shifty. "Hey, beautiful.. You know, you ought to ditch cupid here, and go out with a real man that can really turn your world upside down..And trust me, sweetheart.. I can prove it in more ways than one.." She smiled while her brows creased, waiting for him to lose the smug look and crack a grin and chuckle. Instead, his fingers began to move up her leg and she kicked his leg under the table lightly, giving him a warning look. She didn't want to bring it to everybody's and Wesley's attention if he didn't know it already. Trinity rubbed up and down her legs in attempt to lose the lingering sensation and thought of Ajax's fingers on her leg. "You want get out of here for a little while?" Trinity stared back at him for a while, looked to Wes then back at Ajax. “Seriously?” But that was just it. He couldn't have been serious and ballsy enough for majority of camp to know he already slept with two girls just last night and now he wanted to...what? score with her?
Trinity wasn't particularly close with him but maybe one fighter to another and a grounded talk would solve whatever his problem was. Or maybe he was just pulling Wes's strings. “Actually, yeah. Let's take a walk.” She got up from her seat and lead the way outside. Though, feeling eyes stalk after her, she became rather self-conscious, covering her bum with her hands clasped behind her back.

Once she was outside, she put her palm to her forehead and exhaled slowly. “Please, please, tell me you're not for real.” Trinity spun to Ajax and hit him. “What are you doing!?” Trinity respected Ajax but he was losing it by acting like a sleazeball .

Location: Her Cabin --> Forest --> Main Hall Kitchen
Interacting With: Seraphina Antoniou and Ilias Antoniou
Outfit||Knife
Somehow Melissa made it to her cabin and shoved herself through the door. Struggling to keep all three of her dogs from running outside or jumping up on her she slammed the door closed, causing the dogs to pause in their excited jumping and worried licks and growls. With a sigh Melissa made her way over to her bed, stripping as she went, though her shorts caused her some trouble. Moments later she collapsed onto her bed and slipped into unconsciousness instantly.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
As the sun shone outside Melissa's cabin was still cloaked in shadows, inside and out. The placement of Mel's cabin, in the same area as Hades' Cabins, had been chosen specifically for the way the forest floor was still covered in darkness even when the sun was high in the sky and it's distance from all the others. Despite this Melissa's nightmares woke her mid-morning, causing her to cry out and sit up quickly. Shadow, the calmest of her dogs, settled at her side and pressed against her legs while Demon, the only puppy in the group, leapt at her to like her face. At the sight of her dogs, Rage giving Demon a wary glance from the sofa across the room before laying his head back down, Melissa immediately calmed. Knowing she had already slept more then she usually did in a week, Melissa dragged herself out of bed and into the shower. Careful to keep her injured arm as dry as possible Mel was finished in less than ten minutes. Drying her hair, she noticed with a sigh that her leg was bleeding again. Grabbing a jar from her kitchen cabinet Melissa smeared a salve onto the wound given to her by an Apollo kid forever ago for a sword injury. Re-wrapping her leg and pulling on some clothes she tested putting her weight on her leg. Though a twinge of pain went through her body it was tolerable.

Knowing she wouldn’t be able to work out today, and therefore wouldn’t be able to put her weapon in her workout bag, Melissa strapped it onto her thigh. Letting out two low pitched whistles, Demon and Shadow both padded back towards Melissa’s bedroom while Rage followed after her. Heading out the door and into the woods, in the direction of the main trail. About five minutes later, only halfway to the path that led to the main hall, Melissa looked wide-eyed at a literal zombie. While it was obvious that wierd things were going to happen at a camp for Demi-Gods, something she had learned over the years, never before had zombies been a possible thing. Walking both towards and past the zombie out of the corner of her eye Melissa spotted Daniel and Alex. Immediatly understanding the situation Melissa corrected her direction to head back towards the main trail and clicked her tongue, regaining the attention of Rage, who had been stalking the zombie while growling softly.

Finally reaching the trail a few minutes later Melissa headed towards the main hall, not bothering to pay attention to the people around her. While Rage was her newest dog, due to an incident with one of the Artemis kids who lived in camp year-round, his aggresive tempermant was well known and therefore people kept their distance. Reaching the main hall, Mel entered and went straight into the kitchen without saying a word to anyone. As she walked in Melissa noticed Sera and her son, Ilias, both in the room as well. Giving Sera a silent wave and Ilias a kind smile, she went straight to the fridge and pulled out the leftover grilled chicken and fruit salad from the night before. After serving herself some of the fruit salad she turned to watch Sera hand Ilias an apple. After a moment watching the two the blonde sighed and threw her hair up in a ponytail. “Sera I’m going to train on my own for the next few days. I might come around for dinner but otherwise I’ll be in my cabin or at the gym. If you need any help in here just stop by and tell me. To make up for me being gone I’ve got lunch for today covered, go spend some quality time with your son after training.” Throwing all the leftover chicken in the oven Melissa pulled more raw chicken out of the fridge. Glancing at the window that looked out into the dining room Melissa hesitated a moment before shaking her head and walking past it. Grabbing a cutting board and a knife she started cutting up the raw meat, making quick work out of the task.

With the light knock at the doorway, Seraphina turned from her watchful vantage point out the kitchen window, waiting for other staff members to arrive for the day to start and her turn at 'freedom' to begin; to see Wesley there, with a grateful expression, and a quiet but sincere, "Thanks..." "You're welcome." She hummed lightly in turn, with a gentle smile at him reaching down to ruffle Ilias' hair before departing back to Trinity. The boy tolerated the relative strangers touch with little more than a squinted eye, and the high potential of something muttered under-breath about "stuffing" - that he did not give much voice to, less his mother catch him.


It wasn't long before a pair of new arrival(s) into the kitchen caught both attentions, Sera murmured a soft, "Good morning," to Melissa's wave; and Ilias promptly sat down on his rump. He'd partially noted in some corner of the demigod friend of his mother's passing by with a kind smile to enter the kitchen, but his attention was held rapid by the large dog following on Melissa's heels. "Puppy, puppy." With a toothy, but playfully shy grin, Ilias began to eat the apple and offer Rage a small piece every other bite.


"Sera I’m going to train on my own for the next few days. I might come around for dinner but otherwise I’ll be in my cabin or at the gym. If you need any help in here just stop by and tell me. To make up for me being gone I’ve got lunch for today covered, go spend some quality time with your son after training.” Melissa spoke up, and Seraphina's 'always on' smile - seemed far more genuine and warmer at the the other girls' offer to handle the kitchen.

"Bless your heart, Melissa," Seraphina mused in return. Thankful for Mel taking the time to let her know where her location was going to be for the next few days, because it wasn't often one had been told to make sure his eldest daughter at the camp was well cared for by the God of War - due to her rough life before. And of course she appreciated the offer immensely to take care of the lunch for the day, so that the staff member could take the time to train, and be with Ilias too. "Thank you, I appreciate the gestures, and - I think I'll owe you one..." She smiled wider, and dipped her head in farewell.

As Melissa began busying herself around the kitchen, Seraphina moved to her son, still quite enamored with the dog - and while she'd heard he was quite agressive with people he didn't know, she suspected Ilias' was making a fast friend with the pieces of apple that she wasn't so worried about the bad reputation the animal apparently had. "C'mon Ilias, let's get out of the way." "Oh... Ok. By-by, Puppy." Ilias willingly obliged, and followed.

Upon exiting the the main hall, and passing the disturbance that Ajax seemed to have caused, the thundering sky caught Seraphina's attention - and appearing within a bolt of lighting, Zeus himself was at the camp. Unlike the googling eyed children that were either in awe or frightened at the God's appearance, Seraphina watched the exchanges - interesting as they were with the son of Hades pointed out and dragging himself forward with Zeus; and Ares with his youngest, Trinity - with a schooled neutral and cool expression (especially after it was noted that Poseidon would not be far behind).

"Ilias?" She murmured, bending down to whisper in his ear as he was hiding behind her, meaty fists clenched around a knee, in rapid awe, and the hint of tightly measured fear - the presence of Gods' and monsters did that to the poor lamb, sometimes she could almost wistfully figure he was far too normal (and 'human') and could live a much safer life than this, though she knew much better. "I've got a job for you, okay? Go let Melly know her Dad's here, please." "O-ok." The child departed back up the stairs into the dining room of the main hall, headed faithfully at his mother's words' towards the kitchen, where it was 'safer'. Seraphina stayed, silent, watchful, and attentive - all though the likelihood of her own mother making such an appearance was slim to none, much less speaking to her daughter when she had ignored her for three years - it would not due to be negligent.

... "Puppy. Melly. Daa's here."

Once she was finished cutting up the chicken Melissa threw it all into two pans with some oil and salt. "Bless your heart, Melissa" Looking away from the rack of seasons Melissa gave the other girl a smile. "It's not a problem." Now that she was actually paying attention her eyes snapped down to Rage who was licking the fingers of the child after being fed a piece of apple. At this Melissa laughed, of course her most vicious pet was tamed by the son of Hera's daughter. "Thank you, I appreciate the gestures, and - I think I'll owe you one..." Melissa shook her head, now smiling, as she picked out a few spices and seasoned the meat in the pans. "Don't worry about it. I usually help out so me leaving is most likely going to mean the staff will have to work a bit harder. This is the least I could do." Melissa turned up the heat on the stove and grabbed her bowl of fruit salad, munching on it as she let the chicken cook. "C'mon Ilias, let's get out of the way." As Sera guided her kid out Melissa whistled softly calling Rage over to her. She didn't want Rage trying to go after the boy so she set the bowl she had been eating out of on the ground for the dog to finish. Fruit was surprisingly his favorite treat. "Oh... Ok. By-by, Puppy." The dog barked and licked Ilias' face before going over to eat what was left of the fruit. Turning her attention back to the stove Melissa stirred the meat and then walked away, grabbing three extremely large bowls and a few jars of mayonaise out of the fridge. Setting the stuff down she quickly checked the meat in the oven. Just as she was opening the oven, Melissa heard the thunder and frowned. 'I know for a fact that the sky was sunny when I was walking here...' Pulling the chicken out of the oven Melissa shrugged and went back to work.

For the next few minutes Melissa worked on separating as much chicken from the bones as possible,filling each of the bowls about half of the way. Checking on the chicken in the pans Melissa poured the oil into a large jar that she pulled from underneath the sink and then split the chicken in between the three bowls. It was just as she was pulling the celery out of the fridge that Ilias came back into the kitchen, seeming excited. "Puppy. Melly. Daa's here." Melissa froze for a second, almost dropping the vegtables in her hands. Shaking her head Melissa chuckled, going to Ilias and setting him on a seat. "Of course he is, there can never be a slow day at Camp Athens can there?" It was obvious his mother wanted him inside so that was where she would keep him. "Hey Ilias, I have some chicken scraps on that cutting board right there in front of you for Rage. If you want you can give them to him but you have to stay in here. I'll even get you a snack too." Quickly she went and rummaged in the pantry until she found a jar with the leftover cookies from yesterday. Grabbing two she brought them to the little boy before returning to the fridge. Bringing the celery to the table she pulled out a knife and started to chop it up. 'Once I finish the Chicken Salad I'll have enough time to take a break and go see Dad.'


Ten minutes later Melissa had all the ingredients in the bowls and had put them in the fridge to cool after giving them a quick stir, deciding she could finish them after. Grabbing a ball from where she kept it hidden in the pantry, a weird spot but being prepared is always good, she handed it to Ilias. "Why don't you go play fetch with the puppy in the Dining Hall? Don't worry about any mess he makes. I'll clean it up later." She smiled and brought the boy into the Dining Hall, whistling three times Melissa pointed to the boy, glad she had taught all her dogs a command for protect. Exiting the Hall Melissa looked around for Sera, locating her quickly, and walked over to her. "Ilias is in the Dining Hall with Rage. He's safe. The only one who he'll let near is you or me." Looking around Melissa immediately spotted her father and sister and smiled brightly at Sera. "Thanks for the notice by the way!" Melissa bolted over to her father and sister, the pain in her leg not even registering as she tackled both of them into a bear hug.

ImageSending the boys off to find Andy and Trinity, made Alex feel guilty for being bossy with them, but it was done now, and they had left without any protest or anger, so they must of been alright with it considering it was pretty important. Ajax now seemed to be in his own world, for the time being, no doubt he was going over what he wanted to say to both Andy and Trinity for acting like a complete Jerk. "Hey, she watched her brother turn his gaze to her. "Everything is going to be okay.. there's nothing to worry about. They might not forgive you right away, but it'll happen, brother." Ajax smiled at her because she was right, there was no point in worrying over something that wasn't in his control. Alex was happy to have her brother back completely but annoyed that everything bad mostly happened to him.

Image "You're right, Al, but I can't stop thinking about people I've upset, soulless or not, I still feel the guilt. Anyway, I'm fine... don't even worry about it." that was slightly a lie obviously. Alex didn't go into it again with him, instead, she got him a glass of water and handed it to him. He had drunk it quickly after thanking her and then placed the empty glass on the counter before standing up. "We shouldn't have sent Duke and Wes on mini errands. I'm going to go help find Andy. I forgot that Duke won't know who she is." Alex nodded. "Okay." she watched him exit the medical hut before leaving herself and heading off towards where Sera's office was.

She had made her way towards the main office in no time that was at the front of the camp, which had a river flowing next to it in a gentle trickle before exiting out into the Camps main lake that was surrounded by a few beautiful mountains. Alex was on a mini mission for Sera as she needed to know if she could send out a letter to her mother tomorrow. They always had post day on a Monday, but with being busy with everything else, no-one had time to even write a letter to anyone back at home. No doubt they'd understand. But once she got around the corner and passed the sign outside of the welcoming hut that was Sera's main office with other staff members, she could see her step-father walking towards their camp with hurried steps. His eyes looked red, like as if he had been crying for a long time.

ImageThe pit of Alex's stomach was beginning to churn.. this couldn't be good. Why did he have to come? and where was her mother? his son was in the car, so this had to be important since he was always left back at home usually. "Alex, you need to go and get your brother right away, it's a matter of importance, Princess." Alex's brows frowned deeply. "Wh-what? why?" he didn't want to explain any more to her until Ajax was there. "I'll let you know once Ajax is here, I promise." Alex looked at the office and headed towards the front door, knocking before she went in. "Sera, I need to use this as it's important. Sorry," she said before sliding the microphone towards her, and pressing a green button that would broadcast her voice across the camp. "Ajax, can you please come to the welcome desk? I'm sorry, but it's really important. No detours." she then clicked the red button to turn it off before heading back out to her stepfather and waiting for Ajax to join them.
