: Annabeth Chase
Father: Fredrick Chase
Mother: Athena (Minerva)
Fatal Flaw: Pride. Annabeth's fatal flaw, which suits her well, is her pride - the thought that if she could do the same thing, she would do it better.
First met: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

Character Overview: As a daughter of Athena, Annabeth Chase is extremely intelligent. She was the only one to be trusted with Daedalus' final inventions. While she is proud, her quick wit and courage have gotten her out of a lot of sticky situations.

She was the only one to follow the Mark of Athena to the Athena Parthenos, even standing up to Tartarus with Percy Jackson in the underworld. Ambitious and proud, Annabeth is certainly a child of Athena.

Percy Jackson Series: Book 1

Name: Percy Jackson
Father: Poseidon (Neptune)
Mother: Sally Jackson
Step-Father: Paul Blofis
Fatal Flaw: Loyalty. In the books, it is often repeated that Percy's downfall will be his unwavering loyalty to his friends and loved ones.
First met: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

Character Overview: Percy is the initially unwilling hero of Olympus both in the fight with the Titans and again, in the fight against Gaia and the Giants. He is a natural born leader, who usually leads by running into the middle of the fight. He is loyal to a fault, literally, as his loyalty has been used against him by his many enemies. He is stubborn yet lovable. While he may not be incredibly intelligent, he has a charisma that draws others to him and an ability to lead that even Romans cannot help but admire.

Having the blood of the sea-god running through him, Percy is able to accomplish extraordinary feats, with near inexhaustible stamina while in or over water, which has allowed him to duel with beings like Ares, the god of war. He knows his exact location and bearing while over salt water and can even summon water at will, though this tends to leave him drained.
