Franc Lehmann was a young German artist, although his family had moved to America he had traveled back to Germany as an exchange student in hopes of fulfilling his dream of becoming an artist. His favourite thing was to sit in the meadows by his parent's flower shop and paint images of the wild poppies. He was sixteen years old when he met Persephone. It was a warm, summer's day, and Persephone decided to make her move. She complimented his painting and they ended up hitting it off really well. After a few months of meeting, she admitted her feelings for him. Luckily, Franc felt the same way. They went to Franc's flat, stuff happened. They continued to have the affair for more two months and during that time she noticed signs of pregnancy. She announced this to Franc and he was really pleased. But then she explained all about the goddesses and all that. Franc believed her, her face was serious. The next day she left.
A few more months later, two little bundles swathed in blankets arrived on Franc's door step. They were his children. He quickly worked this out and after a few hours, he decided he wasn't old enough to care for twins yet. So, he gave them to his parents, the twins who had been named Caparina and Felix's grandparents. Despite knowing she could never raise her twins Persephone realized the least she could do was ensure when the time came they would be lead to camp safetely so she stationed a satyr to watch over her children hoping that they would be safe.
For the most part Felix and Caparina's first years were relatively normal. Although there grandparents weren't the most loving having been desensatized due to living in Germany during WWII, they still provided a stable home and enviorment for the twins. As they grew older both had seemingly inherited there mothers love for flowers and there fathers talent for the arts. They began school and depsite having ADHD and dyslexia they got decent grades. Life was good. But like always good things must come to an end.
Their grandparents figured that once Franc left school he'd take the twin back on. But he didn't. Franc spent most of his time working and his free time dating. Felix and Caparina's grandparents became more and more bitter as looking after the twins became a full-time things. That's when the abuse started.
When Caparina was 13 she started developing her more womanly features. This didn't go unnoticed by her grandfahter. He was attracted his grandduaghters innocence and purity. It started with massages, coming in at night and kissing her goodnight. Seemingly harmless stuff. Although it was a little strange at first for Caparina, as her grandparents weren't the affectionate type. She began to get used to and even enjoy his affection. He slowly began making his move, he began massaging lower and lower. Although Caparina was uncomfortable with this she was worried of oppsetting her grandfather, besides who would believe her if she did tell. The nightly visits became more intimate and stuff happened. Caparina became more repressed and barely talked to anyone but her brother, even then she didn't tell him what was going on.
Even if she had Felix had his own problem to worry about you see he had begun having strange feelings for boys. But he was deathly afraid of coming out of the closest, he knew that gays were at the least shunned sometimes sent away to hospitals or intense thearapy were they would help you overcome these feelings. Instead he went in the polar opposite direction and became homophobic, which wasn't that uncommon, so nobody really suspected what was really going on.
A few days after there 14th birthday the twins had been silently walking home from school when they decided to take a short cut through a wooded area. While they were walking along the path a hellhound came out of the bushes and attacked them. They probably would have been slaughtered if they protector hadn't been nearby watching over them. The satyr known as Ike jumped out of the bushes passed them strange looking weapons, but Caparina was to scared to do anything, seeing his sister frozen with fear he looked at the satyr hoping for some kind of direction. So between the satyr shouting out orders and distracting the hellhound Felix finally managed to deafeat the monster. "Are you okay?" the satyr walked up to them and asked.
"Yes..." Caparina nodded. "Who a-a-a-are you? What wa-as that?"
"It was a monster, a hellhound. You're demigods. Children of Greek gods? You need to go to a demigod training camp called Camp Half-Blood in America."
The twins were astounded. "No way."
Felix shook his head and the two ran. "That was weird..."
"No jokes. Let's just forget about it."
So they did. They saw loads more of these monsters and became so scared, they rarely left the house with the exception of school. Aged fifteen, something happened that changed their life forever. Their grandfather caught Felix watching male porn. Aldo, their grandfather, freaked out and forced Felix to stay home, so he did not 'taint' the family name with his gay shit.
Caparina soon found out about this and refused to leave Felix's side. However, this added to her issues because as she was at home more it gave Aldo more chances to abuse Caparina. Eventually, after three whole years of this, Felix caught Aldo in the act. When the twins were alone together, Felix was like 'I'm going to literally kill him!' but Caparina didn't want him to because she was afraid the police would take him.
That added to their decision, their descion to leave home and find the camp were told about four years ago. They collected up their possession and as soon and they took a step outside the door, a harpy attacked. The two split up and ran, however a satyr who was nearby quickly spotted the commotion quickly stepped in the kill it. The two explained about themselves and he, the satyr, took them to camp.

General & Misc Info
The only difference between me and you is you regret what you did I regret what I didn't do.
Like his sister Felix plays the violen and flute. On the surface he's a happy guy and very easy to get along with. He tends to be very in the closet about his sexuality and can become very shy around guys he likes. Despite his mother being the goddess of flowers he has the opposite of a green thumb and sucks at gardening. Behind this mask however is unquenchable anger, anger at his grandfather, anger at his Persephone and father, but most of all anger at himself for not protecting his sister. He tries to make it up to her by being the best brother he can be but that doesn't quench the guilt the resides inside of him.
