|Sven, now with two children, Hailey and Nixon, decided he would focus only on his work and his children. Whilst walking to work, he went through a park, and a rather pretty woman with long black hair and green eyes bumped into him. He helped her up, and she said thank you, then left. He went to his office, finished work, then left, going through the same park. He bumped into the same woman again and he would help her up, and she would say thank you. This went on for a few weeks, and the exact same thing would happen. Bump, help, thank you, go to work, and it would happen again. Eventually, he decided to ask her out, and she agreed. Their relationship blossomed, and soon they had a daughter, Ida. Persephone quickly left, leaving nothing for Ida.
Ida inherited Sven's blonde hair and blue eyes. She grew up loving music and plants. She learnt to play the fiddle, violin and piano at a young age, and was taught by her nanny. She also loved to dance, taking part in multiple compotitions and winning most. She often helped nanny with the garden. At school though, whilst smart, her test results didn't show it. She never payed attention in class. She was always very cheerful around everyone, and loved to help people. She often got lots of attention from her father, due to being the most naughty and the most lively. This made her think that her father loved her most, and she would often tease her brother and sister. Soon, she even got a dog, whom she named Brover, and a cat whom she named Moon Rat. Ida was very popular in school.
Nixon, Hailey, Ida and Sven were happy. Sven was doing well with his company, Nixon was becoming the perfect gentleman, Hailey was quite the looker, and Ida was becoming an excellent dancer. The three children loved their nanny, who was very kind to them. But sadly, all good things must come to an end...
Sven was pitching a design to a big oil company, who decided to turn down his idea. With the weight of three children and a huge company, Sven was starting to fail. Other companys were turning down his ideas. He was no longer the happy, cheerful, rich father. All his ideas were being turned down, they were all just awful. He sold his house, fired all the workers in his house, and bought a small flat in Oslo until they could cope with everything. The children still went to school, of course. Ida was worse than ever though, as she was scared for her father.
One day after school, the three were walking home, when they were attacked by a Sphinx. It wouldn't let them pass, and then opened its mouth and gave them a riddle. 'The man who makes it doesn't want it, the man who wants it doesn't use it. And the man who uses it will never know he has it', the Sphinx said. Hailey quickly said Coffin, and whilst baring it's teeth, moved and let them pass. The three ran home quickly, and told their dad what happened. He decided it was time to tell them. He explained they were demigods. He then told them not to tell anyoe. Whilst Nixon and Hailey didn't, Ida told everyone in her class that her mum was better than theirs, and that she's cooler than the other kids.
Sven, depressed about his failure, started to stop caring about his health. He was becoming worse and worse, and started to take drugs and smoke. He drank close to no water, but drank a ton of booze. He called the children's old nanny, who was a Satyr, to take his children to camp. She arrived, whilst his health was getting to the point where if not helped, it would start to kill him. The nanny packed the kids clothes, and a few of their other possesions, and told them they were going on holiday whilst Daddy was working. The 12 year old Ida, the 15 year old Hailey, and the 16 year old Nixon were all taken to Long Island, and their Nanny took them to camp. Just before they got into camp, they were attacked by a gang of Harpies. The nanny took out two swords and some daggers, and threw them to the kids. Hailey and Nixon got closer to the gang and stabbed them with the swords, whilst Ida climbed up a tree and threw knifes, most of them landing in the Harpies' heads. The rest dropped to the floor, and Hailey and Nixon used them as Ida hid in the tree. Nanny took out her own sword, and told the kids to run into camp. Ida jumped out of the tree, was caught by Hailey, and they all ran into camp, and were quickly claimed.
