Atreus is a city forever blessed in scriptures, as the meeting place of Demi-Gods, and Humans it exists as a melting pot of both races, and is at the forefront of an Earth previously ravaged by war after war between the two sides. Although, things are not as peaceful and equal as thought. The ripples of racial superiority and discrimination are quite prevalent, considering that once in the olden days only a chosen few were born (or even placed) into the wealthiest clans, the descendants of the Gods were born into elite clans which sought to take ultimate control of the Earth, while many humans were either poor or disregarded for their so called 'meager capabilities', but one must remember that things did not remain this way for very long. The city once held up to its principles, that is until a war was struck between the two races, thereby ravaging the Earth and accounted for a major loss of population. Years after civilization was able to stabilize, each side built metropolises of guarded and immense structure to separate one another. Despite the fact that the Demi Gods proved much more powerful than the humans, their numbers were small and were further dwindled by warfare to the point where it was assumed that the race went extinct, and the last few were meant to be purged out by human warriors. Thereby leading to the world as we know it today. That is; until the Gods themselves grew weary of the lack of Demi-Gods proving their worth, and they themselves built the wonder that is Atreus as a haven for the remaining Demi-Gods. While originally thought of as a breeding ground of conflict for the Gods to toy with, the Humans and their Demi-God counterparts somehow came to an agreement to ensemble under the banner of one nation. Thus, Atreus came into being. Although, over the years (as predicted by the God Apollo) Atreus has begun to slip into Chaos under the influence of the Gods themselves, but an even mightier force hides behind this, waiting to reclaim the Earth and to decimate the beings who marred the prophecy they were tasked to withhold. No one is entirely sure of what the future brings, but rumor has it that the Gods are planning to select a powerful few to take down the forces of those who dare threaten their domain.
Inspired by Greek Mythology (and Percy Jackson and the Olympians), Atreus is a roleplay where in a alternate universe Earth beings born with the blood of Greek deities try to coexist with humans. There are three types of deities found in this roleplay, Gods, Titans, and Primes. While the Gods, and Titans are rather self explained, the Primes are the beings who forged the very universe and predate the Gods, and Titans. As such, the Primes are forces, rather than beings who choose to take a form, while they can, they choose not to as to keep humans from gaining any more power from the reckless behaviors of their descendants.
A few things to remember here, characters are Demi-Gods, or Humans (Titans may be playable later) born in Atreus, or who moved to Atreus from surrounding countries. The Gods and Titans care little for the children and the destruction they create on Earth, rarely are any of the Demi-Gods and Titans acknowledged by their parents, and are seen as nothing but toys for the deities. Most live without the other parent providing a insufficient childhood leaving a lot angsty teens, and adults with unstable emotions. This World is quite similar to our own if not slightly futuristic, that means characters go through their daily lives like any normal person here and now, except of course, they have powers. My intentions for this roleplay are a character driven plot, and I plan to deal more with who the character is as a person, not the powers and abilities they have, meaning, that conquest isn't something you should focus on when creating a character, in fact, development will probably play a bigger role than power.

Atreus http://i.imgur.com/xRsJTFL.jpg The metropolis of Atreus contains the largest density of mythological beings on Earth, the Academy itself exists on the very border of the city, but close enough for the government to watch. The city exists on a small undisclosed Island, and is home to a plethora of foreigners. It is one of the few places where peace seems to be prevalent. The world itself is fragmented from what we know, while governments still stand, opinions regarding the races largely divide states and governments, and Atreus is arguably the safest state for anyone residing within and has been for the last 80 or so years, as refugees from other torn countries have poured in.The last remaining civil countries, are the US, Australia, Japan, the UK, France, Brazil, Portugal, Canada, Italy, and Greece. Other countries are either currently split over racial relations, or going through civil war. As such, many choose to reside in Atreus, and many more will continue as the Academy opens it's doors.

✘ Adults that fail/neglect children
✘ Saying No
Greg would probably be described as the worlds most thoughtful teacher. He tries his best to incorporate creative ways to get his children into his subject, although it is very hard considering he teaches a chemistry class, but he tries nonetheless. He's got a no-child-gets-left-behind motto going on, in regards to teaching. He's a very kind man but he isn't above reprimanding his kids. He is versatile because he likes to learn from his kids as well. One way he learns may not be the best for the rest so that's why he never gets a mundane feeling from it. Indeed, teaching was his calling.
Outside of the class, Greg is normally full of laughter, smiles and, if the situation calls for it, pensive with his colleagues. Despite his younger age, He is a go to guy for advice and will drop whatever he's working on to talk with somebody. However, Greg can be easily taken advantage of by colleagues because of how passive and nice he is, adding on to his workload. When he gets stressed out, he becomes very dismissive and withdrawn until the next time he can submerge himself underwater to reflect. Even if he realizes he's being used it's just very hard for him to say No, however, it's not unheard of him to turn down a person.
Greg originally hailed from Britain, and as a child he wanted nothing to do with school. For most of his life he grew up without a father and only questioned it once maybe twice, but he got the same answer -- he wasn't important. He was a rambunctious little twerp who did whatever he wanted being extremely hard for his parents (mother and step-father) to control. He eventually grew out of it fast when they moved to America (separated from the bad influences back home) and took to the sciences to fill the time. When it came to his romantic life, in high school he never really found a guy who suited his tastes and that was okay. At eighteen, His mom was now having Gregs younger brother and was often too busy to do much, like show up to his quiz bowls. This left his step father to, well, step in. They'd argue over the silliest things, like why Greg didn't get this answer correctly when he'd clearly seen it in his notes. Silly things like that. They did butt heads a lot, and one time Greg accidentally gave him frostbite but the true depths of his powers didn't really come into fruition until he left for university.
The first time he took a marine biology class there, he ended up breaking the glass of one of the fish tanks when he got worked up over a missed assignment, causing a major flood. Of course he didn't attribute that to him at the time, but the next time something big happened was during his senior year. It was the test determing if he'd get his bachelors and be able to start teaching as a science teacher. Unfortunately, he coated his desk in a sheet of ice and made pressure build in water fountains, causing major leakage. This couldn't be more than just a coincidence making him begin to wonder just who he was. He went back to his mother, who finally told him the truth...He was Poseidon's son and she kept it from him because he didn't show much sign of it. She was told that if he did show any signs to let him know about a place named "Atreus." by her former lover. After he left to get there, he actually assumed a teaching position quite nicely, and never looked back...Although the one thing he hopes to accomplish is maybe finding a special someone to settle down with.

Carter is fairy quiet in public, but isn't one to be considered mute. He can keep a conversation going for a little while if he knows you to some degree, but will stay back on watch until he has made the decision about friend or foe. When it comes to others around him, Carted does his best to stay open minded about the people he meets, and tries to keep a positive attitude.
Growing up, Carter always on edge and filled with energy. Being moved out of Atreus his his father months after birth, and lived in western china for most of his life. Even with his highly superior blood and body, Carter lost his eyesight at a very young age. the loss of his vision didn't stop Carter, as he always seemed to know where things were, and his heightened other senses provided enough for him to get around.
In Carter's early years, his father decided that the large amount of energy that the boy had, there must be a way to use it. Soon after the thought, Carter was enrolled in Multiple styles of martial arts. quickly mastering more than twenty styles of martial arts as he came into his early teens, Carter asked his father something he never thought much about before, his sight. after learning about the loss of his sight, and how almost everyone else could see, Carter grew self-conscious about it and asked what he looked like, to attempt to picture himself in his head. The idea hadn't worked as well as he hoped and tried it many times after. The only thing Carter could truly get a hold of with his own appearance was his "glowing" light hazel eyes. His father told him that they never changed, and were always seeming to be glowing in the light.
Carter tried his best not to worry much about his vision after that, but came to questioning it every once and a while. as the practice of martial arts continued, Carter eventually grew bored of it and required another muse to keep him going. Early one morning, Cater was outside wandering around the streets of his hometown when he was quickly brought into an outnumbered fight, with multiple people surrounding Carter. managing to make an opening, Carter took a sprinting run and took to the walls and roofs of the buildings to escape. enjoying the feeling, Carter took into free running to kill his extra time.
For his sixteenth birthday, Carter was giver information, rather and something like a car. His father told him why he didn't have a mother around, and who she was. Astounded by the information, Carter wondered if there were others like him. with a hopeful "yes," Carter's father told him about a whole academy where there were people like him. On the edge of excitement, it only got better as his father told him that he was going to be attending there.
Although blind, Carter was taught the motions of writing. Carter sees the use of braille useless, and prefers not to use it unless required. before leaving to go to the Atreus academy, Carter's father gave him a pair of old aviator sunglasses which he refuses to take off. Carter has a strange love for K-Pop, and can't explain it himself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AYJZvHeKFo

Nicknames/Aliases: Chris, Johnson, CJ. Race: Demigod Godly Parent: Dionysus Gender: Male Age: 18 Sexuality: Heterosexual (Straight) Skills/Talents: Very good at making friends, pranking. Likes to DJ as well. Has a knack for business and negotiating. History: Christopher Johnson grew up in a little town in California with his mother, Carrie. For some reason, unknown to Chris at the time, Christopher used to be the life of any party or social event. At Christmas, when the family would come over, he was the one entertaining them with little plays or other performances that he had put together. In school, his birthday parties always seemed to be the best ones. Because of this, Christopher was well known by everyone in school, and in town, and never really had any problems with anyone.
As Christopher went into high school, his reputation for being a partier never failed. Everyone wanted him at one of his parties, and that is where he first tried the drug marijuana. For him, the experience was wonderful. So wonderful, in fact, that he even tried to grow weed at one point. He came to learn that he had a knack for growing it, and began supplying to sellers in his area. The amount of customers was unbelievable. Almost everyone wanted some of Chris' stuff. It was the best they had ever had. The product was so good, in fact, that news of it had spread across into other counties. Chris realized he could make more money growing and selling it all himself, so that is what he did.
His mother, although she didn't approve much of it, was grateful for all the increased income Christopher's product was bringing in. However, no matter how many friends he had, how many parties he attended, how much cash he made, he never seemed to fit in anywhere. He knew he was the child of a single mom, not common in his area, but decided to leave it alone for the most part. After a while, he asked his mom, and was told that he was a demigod. After asking if there were others like him, he was told about the academy, and immediately enrolled for the coming year. Miscellaneous:
Always carries a stash of his product with him, and likes to smoke it. He has seeds of his product with him at almost all times, and when he had down time, he likes to plant them, make his plants grow, and experiment to make sure that it is the best quality of product anyone has had. Ever. He also carries a green(as that is his favorite color) Zippo lighter his mother gave to him.
Nicknames/Aliases: Jorge, George, Ramos, Georgie from some girls. Race: Demigod Godly Parent: Hades Gender: Male Age: 18 Sexuality: Heterosexual (Straight) Skills/Talents: Very good at lifting weights, athletic, good at fighting, good at getting into fights (usually caused by his intolerance to stupidity), very intelligent, sophisticated when he wants to be, fluent in Spanish. History: Jorge Ramos spent his life living in Los Angeles, California with his mom, Angela, and his older, half-brother, Jose. The three were very, very close, and Jorge found that he was very protective of them. For the most part, their lives were very good. Angela was a well known lawyer all throughout Southern California, and so of course, she made a lot of money. They lived in a nice home in West LA, and both of the kids had a good education. Life was good until Jose became affiliated with the 18th street gang (a gang very prominent in Los Angeles), and eventually was killed in a drive-by when he was visiting some friends near East LA.
Jorge was heartbroken. One of his only friends, and more importantly, his older brother, was gone. However, he was never able to show it, because he had to take care of his equally heartbroken mother. From then on, Jorge never really showed his emotions, seeing as how those were signs of weakness. Instead, he focused on studying, and a new girl once in a while, to keep his mind off of his hurt.
Then strange things began to happen. He began to see his brother, roaming the halls of the house, and eventually started to talk to him. His mother found out and figured it was time to tell him about his father, and who he really was. After telling him about his past, Angela decided the best course of action for Jorge to take would be to enroll in Atreus Academy, so that is what he did. Miscellaneous: Although not religious, he wears a crucifix around his neck that Jorge gave him a couple of days before he died. Also, because Jorge is naturally drawn to death, and death-like things, he keeps with him a small calavera for El Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). He also loves tattoos, and has multiple on his arms, and back.
Personality: Alexa is not what you would expect from a child of Hades. She likes to laugh and be friendly to the people around her. But don't get it twisted, she can still be mean. She doesn't believe in sugar-coating anything. The people who find that harsh end up not hanging out around her. That's just how things work. Alexa can also be sarcastic. But let's be honest, who isn't?
Even though Alexa can sometimes be mean, she tries to keep her emotions under control. All her life she heard stereotypes about how children of Hades are dark and depressing. So she tries to change that idea in people's heads by being a nice person. Even if she doesn't always stay nice for a long time, at least no one can say that she didn't try. She tries to be honest all the time, and appreciates it when her friends are honest as well.
History: Alexa was born and raised in Washington, D.C. The only life she knows is the city. While growing up, her mom was never really there for her. As soon as she became old enough she had to start taking care of herself. Slowly, but surely, it became as though her mother never existed. It made it that much easier to let go once her mother did die. Never really knowing what happened, Alexa would run away from whatever homes she was placed in. The sad, and pitied looks she got after they heard her story made her hate them. She had been taking care of herself all those years, so she could do it for a few more.
At the age of sixteen, her most recent legal guardian handed her an envelope before she left for work. At first, she was hesitant to open it. She had no idea what it contained, but something in her gut told her this was important. In the envelope was a letter, from her mom, telling her about her dad. She had never really cared before, so she almost threw it away. But then she saw the word Hades. She continued reading and found out about her dad and a place with other people like her. That very day, she got out of the city and went to Atreus. It was once she was with people similar to her, that she started noticing that she had powers. If she concentrated, she could turn things to gold, or make a shadow grow.
Elliot is a rather shy girl, she loves to keep to herself. She has a very meek voice when talking to people and often stumbles on her words. She tries to be helpful but often finds herself at a loss on how to be. She is most comfortable with a guitar in her hands in a quiet empty room as she strums. She doesn't wish to go far with her music, never plans to get famous. She just knows that she loves it and wants to continue to love it. On the inside, she has a big voice. She belts songs when she is alone and truly becomes a rounded person in solitude. Due to her inability to bring herself to be comfortable with people, she finds herself in that solitude often. However, those who she does become close to, she trusts deeply and is thoroughly loyal. Often opening her up to be very vulnerable and allowing those people to hurt her.
Her biggest fear is fire. She fears its sporadic likeness and want to not be controlled. Despite her minute ability to control it, she is terrified of it, often freezing up in its presence. Fire is very different from her and all though she knows the reason why she is so frightened of it, she tells those who ask, it is because of the danger it brings. There are two reasons, she truly fears it. One having to do with her father and the other being that she feels a fire burning within her. She feels the need to be sporadic and out there and fears that the fire will try to obtain oxygen, destroying the person she has become. She doesn't wish to lose herself but at the same time feels as though she isn't truly a person at all.
When Elliot was very young, her father told her about her mother and taught her about Greek Mythology. Many children thought she was crazy as she told them a Greek Goddess was her mother and that was why she didn't live with them. Parents thought her father as crazy as the kids thought her and she inverted into herself, causing her lack of sociability. As Ellie grew older, she started to doubt her father's explanation of her mother. When she turned 15, she began to call him a mad man and showed her teenage angst toward her father and only friend. It was in desperation that her father set fire to the house, calling upon Hecate to reveal herself to them. He hadn't met to set the house ablaze but in his trance, the house burned and he perished. Distraught and alone, Elliot was approached by her mother for the first time. She cursed her name for not having showed herself sooner, for not having saved her father, the one person who had been there for her. Hecate tried to make amends as she explained things, strange things that Ellie found herself able to do but dismissed in fear of driving herself mental.
After 2 months living without her father she found her way, with Hecate's guidance, to Atreus and has been living in the dorms there since. She has slowly grown more comfortable with her abilities but she still avoids using and controlling fire. She does not want to control the thing that had taken so much away. She fears that if she learns to that her father's spirit will resent her for not learning to do so earlier. For not saving him or believing his truths about her mother. Elliot has much guilt in her past and hides most of it. Luckily for her, she isn't too talkative and not telling anyone isn't too difficult.
Elliot wears a long chain necklace that always drops into her shirt, hiding a pick that her father gave her.

Gabriella is a major flirt, she will almost flirt with anything that talks. However, she also has high standards, her interests only being with those who really catch her eye. She has often been called a snob for this but everyone has type, why it is so shocking that she likes good looking people. She is a great socializer and with her charm not everyone really notices her less than admiral qualities. Such as the fact that she isn't the nicest of people despite giving off a super sweet aura. Because of her charm and looks it seems as though a lot of people are willing to put that aside. Ella sure doesn't mind.
She has commitment issues, flitting about from person to person. Despite that she does really want to find that one person who makes her want to stay. Although, she is only 19, she doesn't see why she can't have a little fun while she waits. And she does have a lot of fun. She is a party animal, always ready to throw them and attend them. Due to the fact that most things that happen at the parties she goes to isn't really allowed she has a bit of a rebellious side. She is perfectly okay with skipping a class for some kind of fling. Even is missing classes, she manages to be rather smart even without her mother's help.
Gabriella always had was could be considered to be a perfect life. She was born to Aphrodite and a wealthy man and although her mother was absent during her life, her father raised her well. She had always gotten everything she wanted, either through her father's money or the looks her mother got her and rarely worked toward anything. Except for dancing. She was put into it at a young age and money and looks doesn't make you talented at something. So from day one, after she realized she have to work hard, she worked hard to be her best. Of course as she grew older, her abilities and powers from her mother became more and more noticeable and one day they were too much to ignore. Sadly, the day came a little too late.
She had been walking home from dance when two men got an idea. They attempted to rape her, however her heavy dance bag seemed to work well enough to fend them off before she could get help. The day doesn't really haunt her but it did shock her and her father into having to figure out a way to control her powers. That was when they found Atreus and she was quickly enrolled. With the two men locked away in a prison somewhere and Gabriella attending school, everything seemed to be running smooth again.

Heidi is a complete hot head. She doesn't know how to control her temper and often has to storm out of rooms and punch something. It seems awfully childish but it is apparently pretty common with Ares' kids. She doesn't really care about what people say or think of her, which may not be the best but it is quite freeing. She can scream and yell all she wants and not worry about anyone else. She is as tough as nails and it is hard to provoke any emotion other than anger out of her.
She get sidetracked rather easily and has an incredibly short attention span. She finds it increasingly difficult to focus on one thing while not moving. However, she is an amazing multi-tasker, especially when she is running. Movement and multiple objectives opens and frees her mind. It allows her to think clearly and see distinct lines between this that would often cause people to get confused and overwhelmed.
Heidi grew up with one biological parent, like all demigods, but unlike a lot of them, she also grew up with one terrible step-father. He was loud and obnoxious and Heidi avoided him like the plague. She often locked herself her in small room and turned on the three TVs she had stashed away in there, along with her laptop and stereo. Then she'd sit in her room and listen or watch it all. Her mom always told her it gave her a headache just thinking about it but it always seemed to be the one thing that calmed her.
Heidi often found herself in the middle of fights or more than dangerous situations. She loved adrenaline rushes and was always seeking the next. With the two of these mixing together with a chronic heart condition, Heidi often wound up in hospitals. At the age of 12, she flatlined while in surgery for 40 seconds. Her mother said it had been the most terrifying moment in her life. Heidi was there consoling her, surprising her mother as she didn't think it would be the proper reaction for 12 year old who was just told they were basically dead almost for a minute.
When she returned from another visit to the hospital at the age of 15, she lay in her bed recovering, watching her TVs. When her step-father barged in, yelling about the noise. Anger from the years she had been living with this monster, swelled inside her chest. He could yell at her, he could hit her or ruin her every waking moment, tell she was good for nothing and was never going to amount to anything, but he was not allowed in her room. Jumping up from the bed, the small girl began to beat the man to the unconsciousness. Upon finding her, her mother nearly screamed and decided it was time for Heidi to figure out how to control herself. She was told about Ares and Atreus and was signed up for the following year.

She got the print out condensed and placed on her wrist after she flatlined in the hospital. The wing and flatline as a reminder to her that she already almost lost her life and the fact that she is here doesn't mean it can't all be gone in an instant. http://alexfolzi.ca/blog/wp-content/.../04/tattoo.jpg She almost lost her leg after an accident. She had a nasty scar running up the side of her right thigh, this tattoo is covering it.
The flowers on her right arm are there because she likes flowers.
Oy vey. I didn't know we weren't going to be allowed to use illustrations...
EDIT: Sorry, but I'm probably not gonna participate in this after all. My first idea isn't working out so much and since my second idea was for a demigod whose parent doesn't appear on the list, I'm kind of out of options.
