Personality
Benjamin's parentage is for the most part unknown as for the shit that went down during his childhood and as such is very bitter towards whoever his real god parent is despite how obvious it may be to other people. He's stubborn especially when it's something he cares a lot about but is easily confused or knocked off track. He's carefree for the most part despite his problems and the curse that looms over him 24/7. His brain is pretty slow and it takes him a while to work things out especially when it comes to girls and flirting, obviously ruling out Eros. But despite all this Benjamin is quite a carefree guy who doesn't really mind much and can be quite amusing. He's a great blacksmith.
History

In the sanctuary of Hopewell's Landing (see Samira's history for detailed explanation), below all the hierarchy and bullshit there were several families named "Slave Families" which lived near the bottom of the apartment blocks. These families were the people who served. They made food, the got food, they made clothing, bought clothing, made weapons and all the other things which the more powerful demigods and some mortals that could see through the mist couldn't be assed to do. Veronica Locke was a woman in one of these families. The Locke family used to have a lot of demigod blood in them, claiming to have descended from one of Hopewell's female ancestors, one which was a child of Zeus. However many people dismiss this as myth.

The Locke family's demigod blood had all just ran out when it got to Veronica and her brothers. Her brothers couldn't even see through the mist and as so were made leave as soon as they reached adulthood and Veronica could just barely see through it. When Veronica was just turning 19 she met Zeus and well one thing went to another and soon he left her. When she was just turning 20 she met Poseidon, again one thing led to another and then he left her. The kept happening, she'd meet random gods, one month it would be Eros the next Morpheus and soon she was known all around Olympus for being "The Woman who'd open for anyone". However only two gods had yet to have lay with her. Hephaestus and Ares. They didn't explain to anyone what they were doing and instead went secretly, wanting to know what everyone was raving about. In the morning Ares came and greeted her and soon despite the fact they'd only just met, they slept together.

Hephaestus was at a nightclub where he met Veronica and needless to say they were both drunk and the same thing happened like they always did, they slept together, but something was different somehow. As you all know there was a huge fued between Hephaestus and Ares and when they found out Veronica was pregnant with a child and neither of them knew who the real father is lets just say things didn't bode well for the child. Even after the child was born no one could tell the god parent and as such Ares and Hephaestus swore never to claim the child as a sort of revenge for Veronica sleeping with so many of them.

Time passed, the child was named Benjamin and everything was okay. Ben went to become one of the blacksmiths in the armory and always had a strange love for all the weapons. Despite this he was always a quiet kid, he didn't have many friends. Even the other people working in the armory and forge seemed to ignore him. Just letting him do his own thing. Time passed and soon a civil war broke out at the sanctuary. Brother killing brother, mothers dying to protect their from monsters since everyone else was too busy to defend the building. Soon two vehicles were brought in and whoever was able to go went.

Ben was sat beside this young looking runt of a boy named Sam who looked strangely more feminine than most of the other younger boys but he decided to keep his trap shut, if his masters had told him anything it was "Just shut up and bare it." Time passed and soon Ben became aware that Sam was indeed female and not the male as she was pronounced to be. Taken aback he asked her and she just spat and said she was a boy. He knew even though she denied and soon she realized she couldn't keep it from him and told her all about herself.

Time was spent, despite the age difference of about 4 years Ben found his thoughts wandering more than he should but that didn't help when he, along with Sam and a few other deemed 'useless' children were dumped to avoid monster attacks as they'd begun happening more and more often. Even then the group split ways. A majority decided to walk the roads and go by the street light. But Ben decided otherwise and instead decided to go via forest. Only Sam and another demigod Eric, a son of Demeter who was a little on the chubby side from working in the kitchens his entire life, went with him. They camped, making their own tents out of leaves and things were well until they were approached by Sirene a priestess of the fallen god of light Hyperion who helped lead a cult following the blasted god along with a son of Poseidon and a son of Zeus. The three didn't like the look of her but went with her anyway, beginning to run out of resources anyway. Time passed at first they were treated right, given food and shelter when soon Sirene took Ben away from Sam and Eric and tried to seduce him. However this was all just a trick played by her so that she could preform tests on him, trying to find out his god parent. These tests went on for several weeks, Sam and Eric left the place without telling Ben much to his dismay and soon things went from bad to worse.

Sirene was growing bored of the testing and eventually decided he wasn't worth it and passed him off as a simple mortal that had demigod ancestry and could see through the mist. Seeing as though he was almost worthless to her she decided to sacrifice him to Hyperion. Tying him to a stake and letting the flames burn. Ben was getting prepared for an intense pain to hit him but instead he found the flames soothing, like little water drops tickling his legs. Only feeling slightly warm and ticklish. It was then when the son of Poseidon turned on the Priestess and stabbed her in the throat with his sword which hung gently by his side before he summoned a large jet of water to cover the audience and put out the flames before freeing Ben from his fate.

The two escaped, fleeing from the crowd who were continuously mourning the death of their priestess before Ben came to an abrupt hault starting to realize that the priestess had set fire to the entire forest as well and not just the portion which he was getting burnt in, despite not getting burnt which the man, named David, noticed.

The two quickly managed to find a way out of the forest and onto the main road, Ben took glances left and right in case anyone was following them, but despite this he didn't see Sam materializing out of the darkness. The first thing Ben thought of doing was hugging Sam but suddenly realized that a majority of his clothes were seared from the flames as well as soaking wet from the water. Since he was running away he didn't notice this. He also noticed faint burns running up his leg, but nothing as major as the wounds should have been. It was then Ben realized his god parent. However he didn't claim him because Hephaestus had sworn never to claim the boy even if he did end up being his.

The reunion was bittersweet as a mere half hour later a monster (I don't f*cking care which one a "light" one I guess) attacked by David managed to slay it just as easy as he had slain Sirene. The three unlikely companions marched on. As they approached the edges of the forest Sam pointed out the body of Eric, this caused Sam to fall into a deep depression, not wishing to talk at all. Ben asked David where there were going and David just simply replied "Somewhere".

It took about a few months since they were on foot but eventually they came across The Blue Ridge Mountains. David lead them up, before explaining everything about the BC and that he was merely a recruiter who helps find demigods who've been betrayed or toyed with by the Gods and give them a home far away from where the Gods can get to them. Ben was a little hesitant at joining but after realizing that he was amongst the very few who were still unclaimed, and of course after seeing the forge he decided to join right away, but Sam was a bit hesistant, not wishing for what happened before to happen again. David just smiled and told her not to worry, just to stay away from certain people.

Character's Powers

 Powers of a Child of Hephaestus (Needs 3/6/9 Powers):

  1. Children of Hephaestus have the ability to create and control fire; however, it is extremely chaotic and will burn anything near it no matter the intention of the child of Hephaestus. They can shoot fireballs, streams of fire and coat weapons in flame. The more fire summoned and controlled, the more energy is drained.
  2. Children of Hephaestus can become resistant to all types of physical attacks for a short time.
  3. Children of Hephaestus are able to create a wall of stone, no larger than 2 to 3 times the size of the user, to temporarily block attacks
  4. Children of Hephaestus are innately extremely resistant to heat and fire.
  5. Children of Hephaestus are innately stronger and faster than others.
  6. Children of Hephaestus possess an ability to instantly understand how to use and wield any weapon they possess with no training beforehand.
  7. Children of Hephaestus have the ability to release heat from their hands in order to cauterize an open wound.
  8. Children of Hephaestus are able to create a smoke screen that suffocates and hinders enemies for a short time, using it to either escape or do one sneak attack
  9. Children of Hephaestus have the ability to control a single mechanical object with their mind; doing so, however, immobilizes the child of Hephaestus until control is broken. This only works on objects mechanically controlled, not objects controlled by magic.
  10. Children of Hephaestus can telekinetically move weapons under their own possession and use. They can move up to 3 large weapons at a time, such as swords, axes and hammers. Or up to 10 small weapons such as throwing stars, knives and caltrops. The longer weapons are telekinetically held, the more energy is drained.
  11. Children of Hephaestus are known for making great mechanics and blacksmiths. Able to make,upgrade and repair all sorts of weapons, machines and devices including automatons, armor and transforming weaponry.
  12. Children of Hephaestus normally grow up to be excellent sculptors, stonemasons, architects,construction workers, carpenters and woodworkers.
  13. Children of Hephaestus normally feel comfortable in forges and other warm areas, making them great fire-fighters and volcanologists.
