"Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to Hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip."
No, I'm not insulting you. I'm describing you.
Romeo is stubborn, sarcastic, and outspoken. He is firm in his beliefs and isn't swayed easily. He won't take anybody's crap and isn't afraid to tell people off. While he can easily make enemies with his aggressive nature, he can also make friends when he wants to with his charmisa. Romeo is quite the charmer from his model-like looks to his to die for French accent to his effortless ways of flirting. Romeo even has a way of making smoking look good. Some would say he's the whole package. Romeo is quite the curious teenager despite his "I don't care about anything" attitude. If something or someone catches his eye, he will immediately set out on a mental quest to find out more about it. While Romeo is your typical badass, he is also extremely passionate. If anything he loves is being threatened, he will go to all lengths to protect it. Romeo would risk his own life to save someone he is passionate about, if there was someone. While Romeo attracts many girls, he doesn't really care about the attention. He just wants to find someone who doesn't care about his looks. He wants to find someone who interests him and excites him. Romeo is tired of being lonely and simply wants a friend, though he'd never admit it. Romeo generally doesn't like stupid people. "With intelligence comes arrogance" as some would say. Romeo is extremely smart and has a wide variety of knowledge. He takes pride in his IQ and tends to come off as arrogant with his constant need to correct people and prove them wrong. While many people see Romeo as a shallow, wannabe bad boy, he really is a much more complex person on the inside despite his efforts to cover it up.
"Sarcasm is merely the brain's defense against the less intelligent."
Romeo Dominic Maunier was born on April 1 to Matthieu Maunier and Apate, the goddess of trickery, in Brignoles, France. Matthieu and Apate had met in a small cafe where Matthieu was working at the time. They immediately hit it off, and it didn't take long for Matthieu to fall head over heels in love with Apate. The two were only together for a few months before Apate became pregnant with Romeo. At this time, she still hadn't told her lover about her true identity. To him, she was just an ordinary girl named Violet. Once she gave birth to Romeo, she knew that she would have to leave soon. Apate stayed for a little while longer, but finally faced the fact that it was time to go when Romeo was about 3 months old. She explained everything to Matthieu. She revealed her true identity, told him about the powers Romeo would soon posess, and explained what Camp Half-Blood was. Matthieu was heartbroken that she had to leave, but understood that she couldn't stay any longer. Much to his dismay, Apate took off, never to see him again.
Romeo grew up to be extremely close with his father, as he was the only family he had left since he couldn't even remember his mother. Matthieu was yet to tell Romeo about his mother as he thought it wasn't time yet and he was too young. Romeo looked up to his father. He admired how he was able to raise him and provide for the both of them as a single father. They were as close as ever up until Romeo was 11-years-old. Matthieu was driving Romeo home from a friend's house at night. It was the day before Christmas Eve, and the roads were bustling with last minute Christmas shoppers. The pair were sitting in the car at an intersection when the light turned green for Matthieu to drive. Just as he began to move forward, another car came out of nowhere, slamming into Matthieu's car. The other car had run a red light as the driver was texting while driving, not paying attention. Romeo had been sitting in the backseat and was buckled in so he narrowly avoided any serious injuries, but his father wasn't so lucky. Matthieu died on impact, and Romeo was left an orphan. Romeo was devastated. He didn't understand why such a horrible thing was brought upon him. Of all people in the world, it had to be him. What had he done to deserve this? What had his father done to deserve this?
Romeo was taken away from his home in France and was shipped off to the U.S. to be put into the foster care system. He hadn't spoken much since his father's death. What was there to say? Romeo was depressed at a very young age. He was passed from foster home to foster home, never getting adopted because of his anti-social nature that had come as a result of his father's death. When he was 13, Romeo had been placed in his fourth foster home so far. He was determined to stay in this one and to make his temporary family like him. One day when he decided to go on a walk in the woods that were behind his house. At the time, Romeo lived right by the sea so he wandered over to his favorite spot in the woods: a cliff overlooking the bright blue waters below. He had been there many times before to unwind and clear his head. Romeo was watching the crashing waves peacefully when he heard a strange rustling in the trees behind him. Romeo slowly got up to investigate, when a black stallion surrounded by flames leaped out of the trees, bounding towards him. Romeo's first instinct took over him: run. He ran for his life for a little while before realizing he couldn't outrun this beast. He had to be smart. Romeo changed course and ran straight for the cliff he turned around just as he reached the edge, the horse coming straight at him. Just as it was about to unleash its wrath and burn him to death, he hopped out of the way, watching the horse run off the cliff and fall into the waters below. Romeo ran home as fast as he could and was quick to tell his foster parents about what had happened. They wouldn't have it. They were convinced that Romeo was crazy, and refused to foster him any longer. This destroyed Romeo. Why wouldn't they believe him? He swore on his life he wasn't making it up. No one would listen to Romeo.
Romeo continued to be passed from family to family. He had given up on actually finding one family and sticking to them. He felt invisible. Romeo felt like no one really cared for him. He was lonely. Romeo began to hang around the wrong crowd since he knew no one would care enough to notice. It started off with little things: a stolen candy bar from the gas station or a cigarette every now and then. However, his criminal acts quickly escalated. He decided to steal a watch from a jewelry store in the mall, but was caught to no avail. Romeo was put in a juvenile detention center for a year from when he was 14 up until he turned 15. He was released on account of his "good behavior". Romeo was back in the foster care system. However, his bad behavior continued. This time, he was more careful about being caught. Romeo went on with his life as usual up until he was 16. There were no more monster attacks, oddly enough considering a demigod's scent is stronger after their first attack. This was probably because of how Romeo surrounded himself with bad people. Although this wasn't really a good idea, it proved to work for him as well because the constant smell of smoke and alcohol were able to mask his scent to a certain degree.
Romeo was 16 when he met Clayton. Clayton was in fact a satyr, but Romeo just saw him as any other teenage boy. Clayton did his best to be friends with Romeo and get close to him, but Romeo only pushed him away. Clayton's oddly optimistic attitude creeped him out. By this time, Romeo probably should've been at Camp Half-Blood already, but the year he spent in Juvie threw his life off course. He didn't encounter any other monsters up until shortly after he met Clayton. He was walking home from school when he was cornered into an alley by a hellhound. Romeo was sure he was going to die when Clayton came out of nowhere to save the day letting him narrowly escape the giant dog and taking him straight to Camp Half-Blood. Clayton explained everything to Romeo from his mother to the monster attacks. Romeo was confused out of his mind, but realized there was nothing else to lose and went with Clayton to camp without protest. Romeo just turned 17 and has been at camp for about 2 weeks.

3/6/9 Month Powers:
Children of Apate have the minor ability to create illusions of attacks so realistic that they are most likely to catch an enemy off guard; however, if they miss they are left vulnerable to counter attack.
Children of Apate are able to command a weapon to go against it's master's will. However, they cannot command a weapon bigger than them. Also, the master of the weapon can resist the will of the weapon. Once the effect has wore off, the weapon is immune to further effects of it.
Children of Apate are able to make the objects in a small area shift appearance or location, confusing those who will see it. While the skill is in effect, it continuously drains the user.
Children of Apate are able to trick charging enemies to face the opposite directions and charge at those directions instead. The more enemies and the longer the distance, the more it drains the demigods. After the effects have wore off, enemies will be immune to further effects of it for the battle.
Children of Apate are innately able to see through lies, illusions or any form of deceit, as they are innately so well skilled with deceit themselves.
Children of Apate have the innate ability to confuse, mislead or deceive others for a short time, the longer they try and keep up with the lies/deceptions, the more energy it drains
Children of Apate are able to make a fake copy of an object not bigger than them, but they must clearly imagine the object in their minds for it to completely imitate the original object. Also, if the original object possess magical properties or whatsoever, the imitation will not copy those properties.
Children of Apate can use their powers to lure someone into lying or coming into agreement with them when they truly don't want to without the person influenced even noticing. The bigger the lie, the more power drained. A person with a strong will can fight this, and most will remember being deceived shortly after.
Children of Apate are able to mimic sounds or the voice of a person or creature they already heard speaking or making noise. The quality of the mimicry depends on the focus and skill level of the user.
3 Months After Character is Made
Children of Apate can create illusions in order to twist other's perception of reality or make everyone around them see something that isn't really there. However, the illusion isn't physical and therefore is only a trick of sight. The bigger the change in perception, the more power drained. They can also delude single individuals in the same fashion.
6 Months After Character is Made
Children of Apate are able to make a copy of their body, that they are mentally connected to, but cannot interact with its physical environment. It can be used to spy on others, bring back intel, distract others, carry messages, etc. It drains the user moderately.
9 Months After Character is Made
Children of Apate are able to make a copy of their body, that they are mentally connected to. It is essentially a real copy of themselves, with all their powers to a weakened extent and can actually interact with their surroundings, however while the copy is active the user is entirely incapacitated. While the copies are active, the user is drained, so the longer the copy is active the more they are drained. Once the copy is gone, they must wait a substantially long time before making another copy.
Children of Apate tend to be treacherous, fond of treachery or amused by it.
Children of Apate are cunning, sly and uneasily fooled.
Children of Apate are very good liars and at making alibis.
Children of Apate are good at forging signatures and hacking systems.
Children of Apate have deceit "intuitions", meaning they may have a hunch if someone will try to deceive them. However, their predictions may not be accurate every time.
