Culver is very much like Aphrodite. He can be very moody and vain, but at the same time be sweet and loving. He is very seductive and persuasive. He treats people that he likes very nicely, but if you get on his wrong side, you are dead to him. He understands feelings very well, and likes to talk about them. He also likes to talk about himself. Somedays it will be all about him, but he will make you feel special on occasion.
For years, the gods and goddesses have watched on while the humans developed through the years, as they advanced both personally and technologically. Lately one thing has become quite clear to them; humans have a habit of being very irresponsible when it comes to their environment and the animals that reside within that environment. They came to a decision, fearing for the safety and longevity of their sacred animals, they have decided to create a special group of nymphs to help protect their sacred animals.
These nymphs’ life forces are each attached to the animal they are a nymph of; if that animal becomes extinct, the nymph will die. The gods considered the fact that here are thousands of animals and creatures that roam the earth, but not wanting to over extend their powers, they have decided to only concern themselves with the animals that are sacred to them.
When they aren’t out in the world helping other nymphs and helping to protect their animals, they spend their time at camp.
After the Animal Nymphs were created, Aphrodite kept Culver around because she favored him. She kept him to deliver messages, protect her special doves, shop, gossip, etc. Aphrodite genuinely loved having the spirit around. The two were exactly alike, and that is why they seperated. One day the two started arguing over which one of them was the more beautiful one. This of course infuriated Aphrodite and she did not want to see Culver anymore because she saw gin as a challenge. So she sent him down to camp so she wouldn't have to deal with him.
All Animal Nymphs
- They have a telepathic/empathetic connection with nature and other nymphs. They also have a special, stronger connection with other animal nymphs.
- As they are nymphs they do not age, remaining eternally young.
- Their senses of smell, sight and hearing are enhanced, enabling them to sniff out monsters, track down demigods, etc.
- They are able to summon animals to aid them; they have the best control over their own animal type.
Specific to each Animal Type
- Each type of animal nymph has its life force attached to that species, so if a species were to go extinct the nymphs would die.
- Each nymph is able to change into the type of animal he/she is, and only that type. So the bear nymph could not turn into a mouse, but he/she could turn into a grizzly bear, black bear, polar bear, etc.
- While in animal form they have all the normal abilities of their animals. So if the nymph is a hawk nymph he/she can fly.
- While in regular nymph/person form, they only retain passive characteristics/traits from their animals. So if the nymph is a hawk nymph, perhaps he/she remains claustrophobic in enclosed spaces but cannot fly.
- Vary between species.
