Dad told me I was left in a basket in front of my house, by my mother. He told me my mother was an angel. When he was in university, Athena was his colleague. She helped him study and eventually they fell in love. This is how they met:
One day, my father had biology class, at the university ( he is studying to be a doctor/writter ). He bumped into a new girl and did the "pick up her books and talk" cliché. At the end of the class, my mother offered to help him study and have dinner sometime. It was love at first sight. She helped my father get his diplomat and dated for about 5 months. One night, and his last with Athena, my mother revealed herself. She told him "I know you are a legacy of Ares and that you might not known this, but I'm Athena, godesse of wisdom and a Virgin. As you have read in books, my father gave birth to me by his skull. Our futur daughter will be from my mind, so don't be surprised, when you will see her. Take her to Camp-Half Blood where she will train to survive when you see the time is right, the adresse will be in the basket, don't ask. And be reminded, Sam, that I love you, but I have to leave for my duties on Olympus." My dad knew a little about the greek world, being a legacy of Ares, so he knew what to do.
Before she left me and my father ( when I was left in a basket ), my father got a job. I lived with my father in Los Angeles until I was 16. He told me I was special. Lately, I've been attacked by some weird creatures ( since I was 12 ). At school, I learned a lot about Greek mythology and my father took me to a sword fighting class every day (that is why I survived). I didin't have any problems in my studys, like other demigods, but I was lactose-intolerante. One day I cracked, I asked my father what was going on and told me that I was a half-blood and all that stuff (my mom told him she was a goddess). My first monster attack was from a Dracanae, when I was 12. I just took a dagger (my father kept it, just in case, he can see through the Mist) and stabbed it, when it wasn't looking. I was a legacy of Ares, but I didin't have his powers. My aunt was a Wood Nymph, named, Emma. She gave me a necklace that transformed into a sword whenever I took it off. She was also the one have my father weapons to protect me.
So I went to this place called Camp Half-Blood. A place where demigods trained to adjust to the mortal world and whatnot (he told me the address). I only went at the age of 16, because I couldn't leave my dad, like my mother did. Along the way to the camp, I was attacked by dangerous creatures ; Telekhines, Dracanaes and worst of all, spiders! I was afraid of them all the time, for some reason... So here's what happened on my journey that was the most stunning. I was walking on my journey when I saw a boy attacking a weird creature, who somehow looked like a reptilian version of my grandma. So, my instincts told me that I had to help him. So I transformed my necklace into a sword and started fighting. The boy didin't really care, he must of figured out I was a half-blood as well. When we finally killed grandma snake (which was a Dracanae),he thanked me and introduced himself. He told me he was a son of Poseidon (coïncidence) named Dan, who was going to CH as well. By the way he wasn't the ugliest nor hottest guy in the world... Dont't judge me! So we traveled together fighting off monsters and we also met girl named Jenna, who traveled with us. She was a daughter of Aphrodite, who was going to CH too, btw, was one of the smartest people I met and we became BFFs. When we finally got to camp, our real journey only started. And moved into Her Room...
Children of Athena have the ability to see each specific pressure point on another person and are proficient at striking them in order to immobilize or greatly pain another person for a short time.
Children of Athena are changed during battle and become stronger and quicker in combat than a normal human could achieve.
Children of Athena are able to generate loose materials or manipulate any loose materials found around them to weave a wall. The wall obstructs the view of anyone facing them, and also blunts attacks. However, it does not stop attacks entirely, it is only capable of slowing the attacks down (possibly say that the wall will cut like a bunch of woven stuff or something ~ spiders and what not).
Children of Athena, using their inclinations of battle and strategy, can most of the time, predict the course of action an opponent attacking them will take, and and are able to dodge or parry accordingly. However, if the prediction is wrong this may cost the child of Athena dearly.
Children of Athena have the innate ability of hyper-cognition. They are able to perform more complex mental operations than a normal human could achieve. They are able to process thoughts and learning far quicker than others with little cognitive effort.

Children of Athena have minor telepathic abilities, making them able to telepathically communicate with their allies and read the current thoughts of an opponent’s mind. But this mind reading does not always work.
Children of Athena through telepathy are able to alter the moods of a person or group of people for a short time. They are able to make an ally calmer and more courageous or an opponent panicked or depressed. Once a target has suffered from this power, they become resistant to it for a moderate amount of time.
Children of Athena can curse an opponent, temporarily ruining their ability to formulate battle strategies for a short time. With this curse, the target would only think up rather silly and quite awful strategies. This gives the user a chance to attack or flee. Ex: The target would fake a heart attack and fall back on the ground, thinking the user would believe it and give up on the fight.
