History

Lanson grew up in an orphanage in Kansas City, Kansas ever since he could remember. and never met his real mother. But one day, Lanson went to the park and was attacked by a dragon, and was badly injured, including a long scar on his face running down one of his eyes. Luckily, some campers from Camp Half-Blood had been hanging out in the local mall and had passed by the park. They saw the conflict, and saved Lanson.

He was then taken to Camp Half-Blood on December 27 at the age of 15, and made a full recovery, but the attack did leave him with a permanet stutter and a yearning to prove himself to the other campers, since he cost them the trouble with the dragon. Lanson excels at the climbing wall and races, but found out he sucks at swimming.

Two months later, his father came to him in a dream and told him who his real mother was, a rich lady named Lumni Gate with influences over medical institutes. She didn't want him when he was born and placed him in an orphanage. Since then Lanson has always wanted too meet her, but has never been given the chance because of his hectic schedule at Camp.

Powers

Offensive

  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.

Defensive

  2. 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

  3. 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.
  4. 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.

3 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Hephaestus have the ability to curse an opponent’s weapons, armor and shields, make it softer, somewhat fragile or even rusted. This would last for a short time and make it easier for the user to attack. They can also repair weapons and armor with a thought and enchant weapons/armor to perform/defend against twice the amount of damage for a short time.


6 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Hephaestus are able to summon a humanoid automaton to fight for them for a short time, the automaton cannot be bigger than 2-3 times the size of the user. It may possess one weapon of the user’s choice and will take a basic appearance of a Greek soldier, but the user can customize their armor or facial appearance. The automaton will have no special abilities other than it’s strength, stamina and endurance. ( No powers over Electricity, Magnetism, Flight. etc) The user however has a hard time moving while the automaton is present. The automaton will follow any command of the user, after a short time the automaton will crumble and fall apart. The user will be left quite drained.

9 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Hephaestus can transform their bodies into pure metal for a short time, making them stronger and far more durable. They can also shift and transform parts of their body into weapons in this state. They also have the option to add an incredible amount of heat to their metal form, doing this would make the transformation even more draining than before. Choosing to become molten metal means the user burns anything they touch, enhancing their offensive abilities. Once the transformation is complete, the user is incredibly drained. Even moving wouldn’t be possible for a long time and they could possibly faint.
