Demigods, or Half-Bloods, are children born to a Mortal and a god, therefore are half-human, half-god. All demigods wield powers connected to the domain of their divine parent and these abilities grow stronger with age. In general, they willingly assist their god parent and/or the gods themselves, using their legendary skills and powers. Many have become great heroes, kings, lords, dictators, etc.

Description

While most demigods are created much like regular humans, children of virgin goddesses such as Athena or Hecate (wether she is a virgin goddess) are born from their mother's thoughts merging with their father's. The other gods are likely able to do similar things, however no known examples of similar births are known.

Demigods are first recognised by their godly parents after demonstrating some form of their parents' trait to be noticed, either through cunning, powers, skills like archery, hunting or even beauty.

Few demigods have full blooded siblings (with the exception of twins), as their godly parent will usually leave their mortal consorts not long after a child is born, or sometimes even before that.

Appearance

Demigods are completely indistinguishable from humans. They do not have a divine form, however they do inherit some traits from their god parent's divine form. For example, children of love gods/goddesses such as Aphrodite, Eros or Freyja inherit their beauty and appeal.

Traits

The ichor in a demigod's bloodstream gives them a distinct scent that all monsters can smell and inexplicably attracts them. There are ways to hide or mask the scent, but if a demigod realizes what he/she truly is, their scent will reach its peak. The scent of demigods varies on how powerful the god/goddess is, and is much more potent than that of lesser demigods. Demigods' personalities tend to vary based on their divine parenthood; for example, children of war Ares (the god of war) are usually violent and warlike, or children of Apollo (the god of music), have a strong interest in the arts; Music, poetry, painting etc.

Most demigods also have ADHD and/or dyslexia (though it varies from demigod to demigod). Demigods are relatively stronger, more agile, and more durable than regular mortals, and have more resistance to diseases, except Norse demigods are physically stronger than any other type of demigod.

Demigods also have a distinct scent due to a spell cast by Lamia, a child of Hecate, which allows monsters to find them.

Immortality

Demigods are known to be mortal, and are able to die in combat. There are two seperate groups demigods can choose to become immortal. One, the Hunters of Artemis, which is only applied to girls, and is led by the goddess Artemis. Another is the Archers of Apollo, which is applied to boys, and is led by Apollo. Although the archers retain complete immortality, and are unable to die through any cause of death, including combat.

Greek Demigods

Greek demigods are children born from a mortal and a greek god or goddess. They are the most common type of demigod, and are present and train at Camp Half-Blood. They read and speak Ancient Greek and fight in the style of Greek warfare. Gods such as Zeus, Poseidon, Apollo, Hecate and Ares are known to have the most demigod children.

Roman Demigods

Roman Demigods are an unique subset of demigods who train at Camp Rome, which is located near San Francisco. They are born when a god conceives a child with a mortal while in their Roman aspect/form. They naturally speak and read Latin, as opposed to Ancient Greek to Greek demigods, and are trained in the style of the Roman legions instead of Greek warfare, and display more discipline than any other demigods.

Roman demigods start their lives at the Wolf House. It is there that Lupa decides if the child is strong or not. If she believes they are, she will spend time training their demigod skills that they will need to survive. If you make it through the training alive, she will tell you to follow your instincts to find your way to Camp Jupiter, home of the Roman Legion. However, if Lupa doesn't believe you are strong enough or you show fear, it is said you will be eaten. If you manage to make it to Camp Jupiter, a praetor will decide if you can join the Legion before sending you to have your augury read. If it is favorable, then you can officially join the Legion.

Egyptian Demigods

Egyptian Demigods are children of the gods and pharaohs they are at Camp Egypt, which are located in Cairo Egypt, near Camp Half-Blood, Miami Florida and Madrid Spain. They are enemies with Camp Jupiter, They are known to use Magic.

Norse Demigods

Norse demigods are another unique (perhaps even more unique) subset of demigods who train at Camp Asgard. They are born between the union of a mortal and a Norse god. They naturally speak and read Old Norse and are trained in the style of Viking warfare. While not being the most structured, disciplined or strategized fighters, they are known as the physically strongest.

Celtic Demigods

Celtic demigods (Celts or New Celts) are a British and Irish set of Demigods who train at Camp Avalon in Wales, Great Britain. They are born between the union of a mortal and Celtic God. Celtic demigods are taught to read and write English and Welsh and their minds are hardwired to read and write old Irish (Old Gaelic). They are faced by numerous Celtic monsters and other beasts such as widespread pan-continental hellhounds.

Abilities

Main Article: Demigod Abilities

Demigods have ADHD (although it varies between demigods), which hard-wires them for battle, and dyslexia, which they have because their brains are hardwired for reading Ancient Greek, Latin Old Norse or Old Irish. Demigods inherit some control over their divine parent's domain.

Demigods also have a wide variety of other abilities that they all share, but these abilities vary depending on their godly parent, including superhuman strength, speed, superhuman senses, agility, above-average healing-factor, durability, and endurance. The gods have influence over certain special powers that their children can receive, or at least in the case of rare abilities (Pyrokinesis, Charmspeak etc). Demigods are naturally able to see through the mist.
