ENFJ (personality type)
Nick is artistic/creative, happy, always thinking, loves having things around him be orderly, always is trying to think systematically. Knows things intuitively and is frustrated when people ask him how he know that. Nicole trusts herself a lot and is pretty comfortable in her own skin. She loves being outdoors and loves listening to the plants. He is natural leader. Loves going to social events as long as he gets to go home afterward and relax.
Short 'n Sweet Version:
Nicole's mom and dad met while her dad, Theodore, was leading her mom, Demeter, up Devil's tower in Wyoming. After the couple met up a few more times Demeter got pregnant and a few months later Nicole was born.
Demeter went missing after the child was born and Theodore searched everywhere for her. He had no idea what had happened to Demeter until his daughter can home from school with a note from Demeter explaining everything. Theodore and his friend, Scott, bought a RV and drove all of the country keeping Nicole away from monsters and home-schooling her. During this time Nicole discovered he was trans.
On Nick's 13th birthday he was attacked by a hellhound and after killing it Theodore and Scott told Nick about the note and what it said. The three of them moved to Long Island to be close to camp in case any other monsters attacked. A number of months later a empousae broke into their house attacking Nick and a friend of his that happened to a satyr. That attack convinced Theodore that Nick had to go to camp.
Longer and More Detailed Version:
Nicole's dad loves being outside. He went on a trip with a number of his friends to Devils Tower in Wyoming as a celebration for finishing high school. The plan was to climb to the top. They did so in record breaking time. This inspired Theodore and his best friend Scott (Nicole's "Uncle" Scott) to start an climbing escort company for Devils Tower after they finished getting their bachelors degree (which they both got in natural sciences).
About five years after string the company Theodore was doing a routine climb with a young woman and her daughter. He was very taken with the woman and her extensive knowledge of natural life. She talked about the trees like they where real people and cried when she found someone had carved something in one. The two women made it to the top of Devils Tower even faster than his friends had. After a few more meetings he knew he was in love with her. A few months after meeting, the women had a baby girl and named her Nicole. The name means "Victory of the people". Only a few months after the baby was born the mother went missing. Theodore told police and even look for her himself, he was heartbroken when she was no where to be found. He didn't know what happened to her until one day Nicole came back from third grade with a note from her mother in a gold envelope. It said:
Dear Theodore, I apologize for leaving so soon after Nicole's birth. The truth is that she is half-blood. The school she is at right now is not safe. Please keep her safe until she can go to Camp Half-Blood.
After that there was information about the camp and about other schooling options. There was also a braided leather bracelet in the envelope. If there was one thing Theodore didn't want to do it was send his daughter away after getting that news. Instead he sold his house and bought a RV. For the rest of her life until she was 13 Nicole traveled across the US with her dad and "Uncle" Scott. The two men home schooled her. In those Nicole years cut her hair short and started dressing more as a boy. Nick's first run in with a monster was on his 13 birthday, when the three of them where climbing Devils Tower (like they did every year for her birthday). The monster was a hellhound, Nick had to fight it on top of Devils Tower by throwing rock and other things at it. He almost fell over the edge multiple times but eventually tricked it into falling off instead. The three of them where picked up by park ranger helicopter and the traumatized Nick demanded answers from her dad and "uncle". That's when he found out what she was. Theodore's greatest fear was losing him like he lost Mick's mother and wanted to deny the truth of his demigod status. The men had done a pretty good job of keeping him away from monsters and danger which is why he did not find out until he was 13. But those things cannot be hidden forever. The three of then flew to Long Island where the two men got normal jobs just in case Nick needed to go to Camp Half-Blood. They only lasted a few months before a Empousae (who had been hiding at Nick's new school) broke into there house and attacked him. Thankfully a friends of had walked home with him, the friend was a satyr and quickly killed the monster while Nick looked on helplessly. Once the empousae was dead the two ran to Theodore and Scott's office. The satyr told the two men that it was time Nick came to camp.
Nick didn't have anytime to pack a bag or anything. The three of them drove to where the letter from Nick's mom said it was. Right before nick walked across the property line he hugged his dad and "uncle" goodbye. Theodore gave him the letter and bracelet from his mom to keep along with a quilt that they kept in the car. Scott gave him a pocket knife, "just in case", Scott had said. There was one last hug before Nick entered into Camp Half-Blood.
