Welcome to Camp Half Blood...
Your Instructors (GMs) are...: VanceXentan Councilor of the Sons of Hermes, and Follower of Zechs Merquise, and ValenDreth Local Prisoner of the Imperial City.
It has been some time since the gods have faced any real enemy and the Campers at Camp Half Blood have been little more than missionaries and helpers cleaning up the messes that the others have made. The pact of the Big Three has been loosened slightly and they were allowed to have a child if only to help the other half bloods get further in life. However there is a darkness brewing and the a Titan has escaped from the Nether World evading Thanatos the Lord of Death, sending a shockwave throughout Olympus as they try to cover it up and no one knows of his escape yet. The goal of the Titan is unknown however in this age of 2012 it is very ominous and a very scary prospect that this could be a dooms day scenario if not properly handled. At Camp Half Blood (Counselors are a man named Zane Harlen Son of Apollo who is a kind and gentle man. He is one of the few demi-gods to reach the age of fifty Joe Jackie Robinson Son of Athena and is the age of 19 and is a very lazy young man but very very smart. And Mr. Dionysus as the main councilor of the whole camp. The security chief is Hanzo a Japanese Half Blood, son of Ares, who proved his strength fighting in Iraq. He is very strict and does not let people cross the line out of camp.) Things are progressing as they always have and always will normal and peaceful with all the prospects of a Greek Military Camp and a Camp for normal kids. There is going to be a new quest soon and there will be destined demi-gods that will be choosen....

Character Sheet: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 or Latin. Demigods inherit some control over their divine parent's domain, such as Percy's ability to manipulate water or Leo's mastery of technology and tools. Some demigods also show some control of magic or curses, such as when the Apollo cabin cursed the Ares cabin to speak in rhymes, or children of Hecate, who have an innate ability to use it. 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 Lost Hero mentions that the gods have influence over certain special powers that their children can receive, such as Hephaestus with his children's fire power (such as Leo Valdez), and Aphrodite with charmspeak (such as Drew and Piper McLean).

Blade and shape of sword:
Personality: Unlike most of the cheerful and sneaky Hermes he is a bit of an emo kid. His main colors are dark and he is not normally very cheerful. He tends to enjoy being alone and solving puzzles and the like with his own. He has tendencies to get angry very easily under stress but is mindful on controlling himself. His hesitancy to go on quests is from the deaths of his first team and his failure to complete his second. He can be respectful and some what kind to others when he wants to be but does not seek to have friends. He sometimes has short periods of arrogance where he tends to get on peoples nerves or outright says something he would regret. However in his own right he is highly experienced and knows what he is doing most of the time. He is also a very competent warrior and strategist/tactician. His hardships have made him grow up faster than he should have as well.
Bio:SpoilerBorn to a hard working mother in New Jersey Daniel grew up as many others did in a rather decent neighborhood and was accustomed to being bullied and pushed around. He was rather good in sports however despite his bony frame and also did well in the classroom. When he joined Camp Half Blood it was a race more or less as he was nearly killed by lizardmen. He was rather adaptive to his new environment seeing as he came from a modern environment and was dumped more or less on his head when it came out he was the son of the Greek god Hermes. His first thoughts were of learning how to defend himself so he met with Chiron (who was still councilor at the time) and a few of the nice members of Aries cabin and learned how to fight and use close range tactics to his advantage. Though he was horrible with a bow. He also learned how to treat wounds after having to help one of his cabin brothers who broke his ankle during training and receiving further instruction from a member of Apollo Cabin.
His first quest was to save a half blood trapped in Canada he was paired with a couple a male from Aries cabin who he had befriended and his girlfriend from Aphrodite cabin who he disliked because she always was going on about her looks and how she thought everything was disgusting. By the end of the journey the Aries cabin male had sacrificed himself for the group mainly his girlfriend who unfortunately died of wounds when they reached camp. His second quest was being sent to retrieve a weapon that was capable of repelling monsters this time he was paired with two Apollo and a member of hephaestus cabins members. They eventually found it in a hot spring but lost it on the flight back unable to retrieve it they returned to the camp after nearly being killed by laistrogonians.
Daniel has since been practicing his combat skills in camp half blood refusing to go on a quest unless he has to and is found of sitting on the beach solving physical problems, reading, and every now and again trains with the satyns and other campers or sometimes by himself in the forest. He at one point during this time received a visit from Hermes and received a sword for his efforts and the condolences for his hard fought life. Daniel understood and pledged he would not end up like his half brother George who died a traitor to the camp after he tried to sell everyone out for gold.
