The Heroes of Olympus Minor demigods

HecateA posted on Jul 16, 2010 at 03:22AM
There will obviously be new demigod children of the minor gods. I'm wondering what some of them'll be like. There have been some bits about how Eris' children must cause mayhem and Iris' kids must get free comunication, but what about Janus, Hebe, Hecate, Peitho and Persephone's kids?

My first guess: Janus' kids are good at chess. Chess is a game of decisions, one false move may cost you the game. Good choices, good game is a basic rule.

Well, Hecate's kids can certainly do magic. Btw, do you think Hecate is good or evil?
Peitho's children will be good at persuading people, and I think it's a very useful skill. Just imagine, you can make anybody do anything you want. I wish I could make my sister shut up, she's always so annoying!
Persephone's children may have the ability to control plants and animals, but not as good as Demeter kids. And since Persephone is the goddess of springtime, I think they can do things like make flowers grow and make people feel good. Also, I know this is not likely but maybe they can have a little power upon the dead because Persephone is the Queen of Underworld.
I don't know about Janus, but maybe they will be good at making choices and teasing people. And playing chess.
Hebe is the goddess of youth, young brides and the cupbearer of the gods. I don't know what her children will be like...

Why would Persephone control animals?
I think Janus' kids will have confusing appearances because Janus had two faces, so one eye could be green, the other brown and the hair could have different streeks is my guess.
I don't really know about Hecate. She supported the titans, then again so did all the other minor gods (but Hestia and the wind gods). She does annoy Hermes, he calls her "insufferable" (i can respect that). But she got respect so I guess she'll bee good. It depends what magic she uses to, (black magic for example). I think she's a little bit of both, like Hades.
Hebe's kids will probably grow up to be children at heart and know how to have fun. Maybe they'll mature slower.

Persephone is the goddess of springtime. Doesn't spring affect animals?
And yeah, Janus kids will look really weird :D
over a year ago HecateA said…
I guess baby animals especially.
other minor god(des)s:
-Asclepius (god of medicine)
-Eris (there has been a mention on the misstress article that CHB will have major toilet paper raids if Eris and Hermes cabin team up)
-Nemesis (Ethan didn't have much of a personality after all)
-Hypnos (god of sleep, his son Morpheus is god of dreams)
-Iris (rainbow)
-Erebos (darkness and shadows) = shadow traveling
And personifications
-Gaia (Ancient Greek version of 'mother earth")
-Nyx (night)
-Nike (victory: count her as a god if you wish)
-Dysnomia (Δυσνομία), spirit of lawlessness and poor civil constitution
-Eirene (Εἰρήνη), goddess of peace

If you have more feel free to mention them

ps I understand your sister troubles, I have a brother, which is about 1000 times worst

But you can find whole lists of names on the internet, I go on Wikipedia (except you might want to verify the info you get on it, seeing as anybody can change it. They have said horrible lies, as in "Poseidon is Athena's mom" and "The heroes of Olympus series is a book series... about a boy named Jason, who is a son of Zeus" which has not been confirmed)

Hypnos' kids (notice how it sounds like hypnosis) will either not need to sleep at all or sleep late. They'll bee good hypnotists (judging by the name)and they will probably sleep talk/sleepwalk if they do sleep or be able to make others do it.

Do you realize how many out-of-bed Hypnos campers the harpies will get to eat if they don't sleep?
over a year ago RoHeHa_6264995 said…
Actually, it said Poseidon was Athena's DAD, not mom. Anyway wikipedia stinks.
And btw you listed Nyx twice.

Asclepius kids can heal people, and Apollo kids can too. Hmm no thank you, I don't think we'll have children of Asclepius in this series. I don't see the need.
Eris cabin will of course be a big chaos. Yeah, she has a lot of scary immortal children. If her demigod kids go to CHB, it will be a great disaster. Anyway, I don't think Hermes cabin will like them. Hermes kids like funny things, and Eris is not fun at all.
I'm not sure about Nemesis... Obviously she's not a very good mother, so their children will always be isolated, mad at everything and dangerous.
Hecate's kids, good or evil, can do magic. It's a very useful skill, but it will be a big disaster if they are on the bad side.
Nyx is the goddess of night. I don't know why, but she makes me think of black cats, you know, silent, mysterious and always full of surprises.
Hypnos' and Morpheus' children can be a great danger too. Remember the "endless sleep" in TLO?
Iris's children will get free communication, and they can be the messengers of CHB or the BBG. I hope they won't work for the BBG, I can't imagine what the campers would do without Iris messages.
I've never heard of Erebos before. According to Nico, only creatures of Underworld can shadow travel. Well, maybe Erebos' children will make it pretty much easier.
Nike's children will be almost like Athena kids.
Dysnomia is the goddess of lawlessness, Eris is the goddess of chaos. Yeah, their kids would get along pretty well. It's not so hard to say what would happen if they team up.
Eirene, goddess of peace. I don't think her children will help us much, well, unless Mount Olympus/CHB is going to negotiate with the BBG.

I'm guessing chaos will increase by about 50% min.

(Sorry for the short comment, I don't know what else to say)
P.S: Is here anybody else other than us?

Ok, I'm finally checking in on everything, sorry I'm late!

I think Hypnos' kids will nap all the time.

Maybe Eirene's children will be sort of "hippy-ish", and if negotiations are involved they will probably be sent to keep the peace. I think they will calm whoever is around them almost immediately...could you imagine how many new campers could be saved from Clarisse if a child of Eirene was around?

I can see Peitho's children hanging out with the Aphrodite kids a lot because not only is Peitho goddes of Persuasion, she is also the goddess of seduction and she was a constant companion of Aphrodite.

Persephone's children would probably have power over flowers and spring time plants and they would probably be very good nurturers for baby animals. My prediction, they will all love pomegranate and hate cereal...just a guess.

i think nemisis' kids would make pretty good judges...
over a year ago HecateA said…
LOL I like that cereal-bit.
Won't Persephone's kids be all mad at Nico? You know, his dad trapping their mom. Well, Persephone doesn't seem that miserable when she's entertained. Wow Nico has step-siblings! (sorry, I'm slow)

And maybe Nemesis' kids would make good judges... I think there's a goddess of law too. Her kids might be better judges. Nemesis' kids will be good strategists and keep grudges more then Nico and Bianca Di Angelo together!

I just realized, all the minor god cabins have leaders at meetings, so they will have to get a bigger ping-pong table. (I refuse for them to use a real table. Maybe they'll move on to air-hockey tables)

Wait are step-siblings allowed to date? Hmm Beckendorf dated Silena, now it would be cool if Nico goes out with a daughter of Persephone!
And I love that cereal and air-hockey ideas <333333
over a year ago HecateA said…
I don`t think so in a regular family. But let`s face it, this isn`t a normal family.
+ Silena and Beckendorf
isn`t that story so sad? According to me its the last Trojan-war-ressemblance bit. There were a few.
a) Clarrise dragging the drakon body (Achilles did that with a dead Trojan)
b) A fortress being defended (except the Trojans were doing good in the beggining)
c) Immortals involved
d) the true-love-being-seperated thign with Hellen and Paris (did she even like Paris more then her other husband?)

Yeah I wrote an article on my theories and they involve the Trojan War too!
Btw that dead Trojan is Hector and Helen's husband is Menelas (did I spell that right?) And I don't like Helen. I don't know why, but I think she was badly educated. I guess it's because of Asian culture, we have very strict rules about being faithful and things like that.

The goddess of dawn, Eos. (Just metionig her :P
over a year ago goddessoflife said…
Oh, yeah, and Styx. (Goddess of the river Styx...a little obviuos.) :P
And there's another one I can't remember.
How many gods are there? I've been trying for a long time to figure that out...

so how many new cabins do u think the camp will have to build?

Yes, losthero5, I'm Asian.
Well you can't actually count the gods, there are so many. Besides, since the myths have changed so much, there are some gods that are not counted as gods. For example, some myths say Iris had a twin sister named Arke, but in other myths she doesn't even exist.
Anyway, R.R promised we would see both the new versions of CHB and Mt. Olympus. Keep waiting!
over a year ago LostHero said…
that's probably one of the hardest things to do at this point
over a year ago HecateA said…
ditto. Can`t wait `till october.

Would Nico and Persephone`s kids get along? He forced Persephone to live with him, and maybe like their step-sibligns they hold grudges, even for other people.
