"Libraries are full of ideas, perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons."
Alena Nikolayevna Zhuravlyova is a Russian daughter of Athena currently residing at Camp Half-Blood. She is single, bisexual, and 15 years of age.
Personality
Alena isn't the nicest, but isn't exactly what could be called mean. She's usually harsh, and won't lie about liking someone unless she sees some sort of gain in it for herself or one that she holds dear - or if it would save a life or give morale to a crowd. She's very stubborn and headstrong a lot of the time, and a very bad loser - her motto is "Second place is just a nice title for first loser" - and she doesn't see why people say that it's about participating. If it's about participating, then why is it a competition?

Lena's also very judgemental upon the first meeting, but almost ridiculously loyal after making friends, whom she can be possessive of. She's determined, brave and resolute in her decisions. She has a tendency to over-analyse things and use sarcasm a lot, as well as spout seemingly random facts. She can come across as holding everyone and everything in disdain at times, but doesn't really.
History

Nikolay Dmitriyevich Zhuravlyov was the only son of the middle-class couple that was Yulianna Zhuravlyova and Dmitri Zhuravlyov. His parents were firm in the belief that academics was the most important thing for children, and so he would be made to study for double the time of the usual Russian school day, which was four hours. Maths, History, Geography, Sciences. All of it - sports, art and music were all secondary and he only needed to learn them at school, not at home.

When Nikolay was in his last year of a linguistics course at King's College, Cambridge University, and preparing for his final exams, he met a remarkably smart girl from another college within the University - Queen's - who called herself Lucy Carlton. He would later discover that this girl was Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom and strategy. They dated for a while in a way that was mixed with enough platonic-ness for it not to be awkward, often studying together during the day and over webcam late into the nights - that was until Lucy Carlton disappeared when they'd gained their master's degrees and wasn't heard from again.

Nikolay went back to Yekaterinburg to live near his parents and all was well for a couple of months - he met the new love of his life, Adelina, secured a good job in translation and linguistics which took them to Moscow, even started to forget about that English girl he'd loved for those few months at the end of University. That was until one cold, misty morning in late September, when Nikolay opened his door to see how warmly he should dress that day and found little Alena on his doorstep, wrapped tightly in a dark blue blanket within a golden cradle, a letter with her. The letter was from Lucy and revealed who she was, along with instructions for where Alena would be safe when she became a target of monsters.

Alena grew up unaware of who her mother actually was, as Adelina had been told of Athena and had agreed to say that she was the mother of the baby. Her childhood was normal, in her opinion - school four hours a day, six days a week, studying at home for a few hours every two days with her Papa, doing sports and playing games in the street with her small group of friends. Her first priority was schoolwork, then fencing and martial arts, which she loved, and then socialising. She excelled at the first two, having a natural talent in languages and combat sports, to the delight of her Machekha and Papa, and was decent enough at the last to make enough friends.

At school, she was the little girl that would steal jotters from the cupboard to practise writing in whilst the other children were outside, playing spies and tag. She'd try to memorise dictionaries, thesauruses, maps, everything that would expand her knowledge of the world. She'd read about America - the land of freedom - and had wanted to see how different it was from Russia, which was, in her opinion, about as free as you could get.

When she turned ten, her Papa was offered a job in New York. He took it immediately, knowing that by moving to Manhattan they'd be closer to this 'Camp' place that Athena had said Alena would be safe at, and telling her of her true heritage before they left Russia, just in case. Alena was, of course, ecstactic to be finally going to the country she'd read so much about - it quickly overtook the shock of being a demigod. Maybe she'd always known, deep down.

The next two years - give or take a few months - were just as uneventful as Lena's life in Russia had been, but Nikolay grew ever more paranoid for her safety as she grew older and insisted that she be careful. He was comfortable leaving her alone at fencing class, as he had learnt that the coach was a child of Ares and had agreed to take Athena's blonde little daughter home after classes.

Sure enough, shortly after her twelfth birthday, Alena was attacked by a chimera whilst on her way home from practice and her Machekha and Papa would be forever grateful afterwards to the child of Ares for killing it for their daughter. In the next three years the attacks became more frequent as she grew up, and she and the child of Ares somehow managed to fend off every one - though not without injuries. This was the reason that Nikolay and Adelina found to finally send her to camp, where she was quickly claimed by her mother - she hopefully wouldn't be at risk there.

Character's Powers

 3/6/9 month powers aren't yet unlocked

Offensive

  1. Children of Athena have the ability to see each specific pressure point on another person and are proficient at striking them in order to immobilize or greatly pain another person for a short time.
  2. Children of Athena are changed during battle and become stronger and quicker in combat than a normal human could achieve.

Defensive

  1. Children of Athena are able to generate loose materials or manipulate any loose materials found around them to weave a wall. The wall obstructs the view of anyone facing them, and also blunts attacks. However, it does not stop attacks entirely, it is only capable of slowing the attacks down (possibly say that the wall will cut like a bunch of woven stuff or something ~ spiders and what not).
  2. Children of Athena, using their inclinations of battle and strategy, can most of the time, predict the course of action an opponent attacking them will take, and and are able to dodge or parry accordingly. However, if the prediction is wrong this may cost the child of Athena dearly.


Passive

  1. Children of Athena have the innate ability of hyper-cognition. They are able to perform more complex mental operations than a normal human could achieve. They are able to process thoughts and learning far quicker than others with little cognitive effort.
  2. Children of Athena have innate battle reflexes which allows them to fight and dodge quickly.
  3. Children of Athena are able to communicate with and command owls. If the user gives too many commands, the owls will become frustrated and disobey.

Supplementary

  1. Children of Athena have the ability to empower strength and intelligence upon nearby allies and instil fear upon nearby enemies with a deafening war cry for a short time.
  2. Children of Athena have minor telepathic abilities, making them able to telepathically communicate with their allies and read the current thoughts of an opponent’s mind. But this mind reading does not always work.
  3. Children of Athena through telepathy are able to alter the moods of a person or group of people for a short time. They are able to make an ally calmer and more courageous or an opponent panicked or depressed. Once a target has suffered from this power, they become resistant to it for a moderate amount of time.
  4. Children of Athena can curse an opponent, temporarily ruining their ability to formulate battle strategies for a short time. With this curse, the target would only think up rather silly and quite awful strategies. This gives the user a chance to attack or flee. Ex: The target would fake a heart attack and fall back on the ground, thinking the user would believe it and give up on the fight.

3 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Athena, due to the strength of their minds, are gifted with the ability of clairvoyance. They are able gain information about an object, person, location or physical event through means other than the known human senses, for example beyond their normal sensory range or when unable to use their physical senses. Some techniques of clairvoyance are veridical dreaming, scrying and parasight.

6 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Athena can curse an opponent with severe stupidity and ignorance, temporarily stripping them of their intelligence and knowledge. The curse can cause an opponent to lose their common sense, fighting skill and tactical abilities. The target could even be unsure how to swing a sword or use their powers properly. After a short time, the curse will wear off and the target will regain their intelligence and knowledge. Their minds will be resistant to further use of the curse for a moderate time and the user will be substantially drained.

9 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Athena can turn into a normal sized owl of whichever species they select for a short period of time, allowing them flight. The user has the option to grow into a giant owl, it can be up to 2 to 3 times bigger than their size as a human. This will make the transformation more draining. As a giant owl, the user would be twice as fast as a normal owl mid-flight, be able to transport allies and possess a very loud scream. After the transformation, they are extremely drained. Unable to move and they could possibility faint.


Traits

  1. Children of Athena are normally very intelligent, wise and clever. Able to easily excel in school.
  2. Children of Athena tend to be very adept at weaving, pottery and other crafts.
  3. Children of Athena typically have the potential to become great soldiers, agents or generals. Able to perform remarkable feats within the Military.
  4. Children of Athena can grow up to make great scholars, teachers, professors and scientists.
