Freddie is tall, around 6'4" with brown hair and blue eyes. He dresses pretty casually usually though has been known to dress up for the right occasion.
Freddie is a rather gregarious person most of the time, he parties, plays music, makes jokes, and is considered a good time all around. There are times though when all Freddie wants is to look up at the stars and think, he usually writes songs during these times and needs to be alone. Freddie's weakness is that he tends to be very promiscuous, and it just happens to be that the people he sleeps with are other men.
Sylvia Mason was an intelligent and driven woman. When she met Freddie's father she was a grad student studying Astor-physics at Stanford. He came to her pretending to be one of her professors. After working together on a paper, they soon become romantically entangled. Three months before her doctoral review she learned she was pregnant. Astraeus then told her who he really was. After she found out, she was shocked to say the least and that shock then turned to anger. They fought for hours before eventually she forgave him. Before he left for the last time he gave Sylvia a package and told her to give it to their child when the time was right. She kept that in the back of her closet for the next fifteen years hoping she would never have to give it to her child. Fredrick Mason was born in Cedars-Sinai hospital six months after Sylvia got her doctorate and close to nine months after she last saw Astraeus.
Freddie grew up in New York City where his mother was a professor at NYU. He lived in a brownstone on the upper east side, and went to all the best private schools. This didn't mean he had an entirely happy childhood though, he was never an absolute genius or bookworm and this caused a lot of tension between him and his mother. He was always more interested in music and art. He started to play the piano at age five, and soon picked up guitar, drums, and the bass. His interest in music was viewed as a waste of time by his mother, and they grew apart very quickly. When he was thirteen he started his first band, and became pretty talented actually. Starting from the age of thirteen though he knew he was different. He started to develop his powers, and started to attract monsters. So his mother sent him to the camp she was told about before he was born. After two weeks though, he missed the city so much he left camp and came back to Manhattan. He never forgot what he learned in those two weeks though.
Following his trip to camp, Freddie had several close calls with monsters over the years, but had always been able to tell and outwit them. By the age of seventeen he had started playing several clubs and venues across the city. One night while he was playing a gig he saw an older woman watching him very intently. After his set when he packed up the woman approached him and gave him her card. She told him she was an agent and would like to help him get a record deal. A couple days later he called the number and they decided to have a meeting at his house. When she showed up at his house he quickly began to realize something was off about her, and so did his mom. She excused herself minutes before the agent pounced and revealed herself as a harpy.
As soon as she changed into her monster form, Sylvia returned and tossed Freddie the package his father had left for him years ago. He ripped open the wrappings and was shocked to see a large star shaped shield and a celestial bronze sword. He used the shield to avoid the harpy's claws and then wildly swiped, luckily slicing the harpy's head clean off. `After the fight was over, as him and his mother were cleaning up he realized he ripped up a letter while opening the package. The letter told him of both his history and powers. Days of talks ensued between Freddie and Sylvia talking about everything from his father to Camp. Finally they both came to the realization that it would be better if Freddie went to Camp Half-Blood. So off he went, arriving at the camp fresh and early the next day.
Freddie has a large star shaped shaped shield given to him by his father. He also possesses a celestial bronze sword.

Children of Astraeus are innately stronger during the night.
Children of Astraeus have the innate ability to see in all directions at once during the night.

Children of Astraeus have the ability to create temporary light sources, similar to concept of a flare, which will alight an area or blind an enemy for a short time.
Children of Astraeus can manipulate the force of gravity of the planet and change the direction and force of it. They can cause items to float or stick to the ground for a short time or cause them to fly into a certain direction. Once the curse wears off, the item is immune to further use of it for a moderate time.
Children of Astraeus have the ability to use the gravity pull of the planet to slow down enemies for a short time, giving them a high chance to avoid an opponent’s attack or prevent an opponent from avoiding one of the user’s attacks.
Children of Astraeus can limit gravity’s effect on their own bodies, causing them to float up and fly. The longer they fly the more it drains them.

9 Months After Character is Made
Children of Astraeus have the ability to change the surface and mass of their bodies to reflect the surface and mass of a planet in the solar system of their choice for a short time. For example, if the user wishes to turn their body into flames, they would adopt the surface of Mercury. No matter which planet they choose to assimilate with, they will be extremely drained after the transformation and they can only use the power once per fight. They may switch planets while in this state. Ex: The user is reflecting Earth to reach an opponent and then reflects Mercury to attack them. Once in this state, they lose access to their other powers. Excluding those that are passive.
As Mercury, the user’s body would be continually be on fire without injuring the user. In this state it is extremely difficult for enemies to look upon the user as the fire burns so bright it would blind them or severely damage their eyesight.
As Venus, the user becomes surrounded with thick, toxic clouds that obscure them from view. As the clouds are toxic anyone who tries to touch them will be poisoned and become sick and nauseous. However, if they manage to get through the clouds they will be burned by the lava state of the user’s body, as Venus is an extremely hot planet.
As Earth, the user’s body becomes gravelly and made of dirt, and the user may leave trails of gravel and dirt behind them as they walk. However, in this state the user has the ability to merge with the earth and travel wherever they please.
As Mars, the user’s body becomes coated in fine red dust that falls off as they move. The surface of their body is cut by fine veins of water that can be used to shoot at people in sharp streams.
As Jupiter, the user becomes intangible and they float about half a foot from the ground, as Jupiter is a gas giant planet. They also become extremely cold and toxic as Jupiter is surrounded by ammonia clouds.
As Saturn, the user is granted the ability to fly, as the planet is another gas giant. The appearance of the user is blurry and hard to make out the features of.
As Uranus, the user gains blue skin, and their appearance is also blurred similarly to if they assimilated to Saturn. As Uranus is classified as an ice planet, the user has the ability to freeze anything they come in contact and they can move quickly as there are extremely fast winds on Uranus.
Children of Astraeus often wield innate knowledge of constellations, space and other planets in the solar system.
Children of Astraeus can tell the time, date and their location simply by looking at the sky.
Children of Astraeus typically dream of becoming astronauts, to explore the stars and other planets.
