"Anything's possible if you have the nerve."
Rebellious, charismatic, outgoing. She's quiet when listening, but as soon as she has something to say, you know about it. May is frank when she talks, and doesn't beat around the bush when telling you news; good or bad. If she doesn't agree with something, she tells you and is prone to getting frustrated when people tell her what to do, especially if it is for her own safety, which comes second to helping her friends and family whenever they are in need.

When Eve Seward was 22, she met May's father at a graduation party. He took an interest in her and they spent most of the party talking and dancing. They went back to her place and when Eve woke up in the morning, he was gone. If it weren't for May arriving 9 months later, and the silver necklace that was left on the bedside table, Eve would have sworn that the whole encounter had been a dream. May grew up in a small community with her mother and younger brother, Jack. The man Jack was born to ,Mark, was Eve's boyfriend when May was 7. Right before Eve found out she was pregenant Mark and Eve had an argument. One that never had a solution, as a result: Eve was left alone again to care for her daughter and soon to be child. She always felt different from the rest of the community and that lead to feeling resentful and unsure of herself for a long time. Her mother was very protective of her, but had to work often so her grandfather, John would look after her and her brother after school sometimes. Nevertheless, she always got along with her mum very well. Her fondest memory was going for a picinic with her mother and baby Jack. They stayed out on a hill untill the sun had started to set. May had a pretty normal school life. People knew who she was, and she knew who they were, but you'd never call her popular. She'd always loved P.e. as it was the only subject that let her outside for an hour or two, the other advantage was that she didn't have to deal with words twisting themselves in knots or being told off for her apparent "abundance of engergy", as her mum called it.

First Attack: Hellhound

When May was 13, she took her 5 year old brother to the park one saturday. They were the only two there and she sat on the swing watching him on the roundabout. Suddenly, he jumped off the roundabout and ran towards the trees that bordered the park on one side, yelling, "Puppy!" and grinning. May saw what he was running at and screamed, chasing after him before he could be attacked by the huge black dog. She managed to scoop him into her arms and they both fell to the ground, with her protecting him with her body. She was certain that this was the end, but as the monstrous hound was about to stick its claws in her back, the necklace she was wearing fell in front of her face. It was a silver chain with a pendant in the shape of a pair of wings. As she watched, the pendant glowed and grew until it fell from the chain and landed on the grass as a large double ended sword. Without even thinking, she grabbed the weapon by the handle and swung upwards slicing cleanly through the neck of the beast which then exploded in a burst of golden dust. Jack was crying now, saying something about "Killing the puppy," but May didn't even notice. She was too busy staring at the pendant-turned-monster-killing-sword and wondering what on earth had happened.

Second Attack: Fire-Breathing Horse

A year later, May had been having riding lessons for three months and she was getting very good. She arrived at her riding school to see a horse trailer pulling into the school. She watched as the doors to the trailer opened and groom walked out of the trailer, leading an abomination behind him. The horse's mane, tail and legs were on fire, the light wind making the flames flicker and move. She watched in horror as they lead the horse into the stables. She ran up to the groom once he reappeared from the barn and asked him what the horse was. "It's the new riding mare, to replace Betsy," was his reply before leaving her alone. She walked into the stable, seeing the fiery horse in the last stall. She could see the horse watching her and she didn't like it. She kept blinking to see if she was dreaming, or maybe hallucinating, but everytime she opened her eyes, the horse was still there, and still on fire. "Uh... Hey," she said to it once she was sure it was real. Speaking was obviously a bad move because as soon as she spoke, the horse screamed and jumped over the stall door, charging her at an unnatural speed. May cried out and fled, down and out of the barn's open door. Thinking fast, she turned a corner, finding herself faced with the outdoor wash station for the horses. The fiery horse skidded around the corner and saw her, stopping and lowering it's head as if to charge again. Snorting aggressively, May saw the horse actually breath fire from its nostrils, creating to jet streams of fire that scorched the ground. The horse then galloped straight at her. May grabbed the hose that was hanging from the wash station and turned it on to full pressure, spraying the horse which let out a high-pitched whine. With the horse no longer charging, and the flames kept at bay, May grabbed the charm from her neck and felt it turn into a double-ended sword in her hands. Realising she only had a tiny window, she ran at the horse with the hose and swung the sword with her other hand hitting the horse in the flank and causing it to burst into a puff of dust. "What in hades was that?" a voice from behind her gasped. She turned to see a girl, maybe only a year older than May standing behind her in awe. "You... You saw that?" May panted and the girl nodded. "You're a demigod, aren't you?" the girl asked. "A what?" May demanded. "A demigod. But I suppose you wouldn't know. Most Gods don't stick around long enough for their kids to find out." "Girl, I don't know who you are, but you're crazy!" May told her, feeling her sword turn back into the pendant which she rehung around her neck. The girl grinned and raised her eyebrows. "Then explain a fire-breathing horse, which no one else seems to be bothered with, charging at you until you kill it with a sword that was a pendant five minutes ago." "I'm having a mental breakdown," May retorted. "Are you even real?" The girl laughed." "Of course I'm real," she replied. "My name's Jayde Mansfeild. You may or may not have heard of my dad; the greek god Apollo. I can prove it too, watch." In Jayde's hand appeared a shimmering dagger that seemed to be made of pure light before it faded into nothing. "I'm not very good at that yet;" Jayde admitted. "I... How did you do that?" May asked, in awe. "I learned it at camp," Jayde replied. "It's where most of the demigods end up. If they don't get killed first." "Oh yeah?" May countered. "And where would this camp be?" "About 20kms that way," Jayde replied, pointing west. "And you need to come with me." "But... What about my family? My mum will want to know where I've gone," May protested. Jayde sighed. "We'll call in on your house on the way," she allowed. "I'll explain everything." May and Jayde arrived at May's house twenty minutes later. Eve was home, a rare happening at the moment, and granddad John was sitting in the living room watching the television and Jack was drawing at the kitchen table. Eve met them in the hallway. "May! Are you okay?" she demanded when she saw the two girls in the threshold. "Your lesson doesn't finish for an hour. What happened? Why are you wet?" "I got attacked by a horse. It was on fire," May grumbled. "And Jayde says that I'm a demigod and that I have to go to some camp. It's not true, is it?" Eve's face took on a nostalgic expression. She looked down at May and nodded, once, twice, three times. "He told me his name was Cliff Lyre, but I never found out his real name. Go with her. I'll see you soon, okay?" May nodded and said goodbye to her family, following Jayde to Camp Half-Blood. May trailed behind the Daughter of Apollo, feet dragging slightly on the hard ground. Jayde glanced back at her. "We're almost there" She grinned, the stopped suddently a frown on her face. "What is -" May started to say, looking around wearily "Shush" Jayde inturrupted, the sound of beating wings came into earshot. "Quick, into the forest. The barrier will protect us" May nodded and ran with the short girl without a glance behind her. They leapt over a fence and passed a large pine tree when Jayde stopped and turned around. "Ha! Take that you stupid Styphilian Birds" May looked to see what Jayde was on about. A pair of birds with what looked like razor sharp beaks were flying at the pair, only to be knocked back by an invisible force. "I take it that's the work of the Barrier" "You catch on fast" Jayde laughed and turned around hiking up a small hill. "Welcome to Camp Half-blood"
