Vanessa is a feisty girl with little motivation to tolerate many people. She finds herself rather flirty and can't help but pull pranks here and there. But she can be very protective and serious when she must. Just watch out.
Vanessa is kind of a bitch when it comes to most people, but she actually isn't. It's normally just a tough act. With a lot of people, she kind kind and nice and even enjoys having them around. However, she is very saucy and fierce. Vanessa would protect the ones she loves with her life and even risk humiliation when going against the status quo.
James Lightwood was a honest man, who enjoyed everything that had to do with having his head in the clouds. He was like a living child but in adult skin. He loved magic shows and one day, Hecate was taking on the role of a magician's assistant - a current mate. She had recently bore his child but James didn't know this. James fell in love with her and didn't pay enough attention to the magician to notice that it was he who Hecate was currently dating. After the show, James spoke with her and they hit it off really well. She left the magician and promised she would be back in three months as she was only visiting Nova Scotia on a business trip. He agreed to meet her when she got back. That he did when she came back three months later. They went on multiple dates and James always treated her well. She bore his child and left without a word.
Vanessa had a remotely normal childhood and she was quite spoiled at that. She was given anything she naturally wanted because James ran his own business and held quite the fat wallet. She loved her father and never really cared who her mother is so Vanessa never really asked. As far as she was concerned, Hecate was dead to her. She grew up with a single parent and was proud of it - happy with her life and content on how it was blooming. Her father never neglected her and always paid attention to his only child. There was never really issues in his life. Vanessa was just the type of girl to not really care about anything - never let things bother her. So when her father got a girlfriend, Vanessa welcomed her into their home and life with open arms. Janice was cruel and snotty to Vanessa constantly but as Nessa always did, she ignored it and continued to enjoy Janice's company. Janice never really hindered anything with her and her father, even if she tried. James and Vanessa held a special bond.
Life continued as normal, and when she turned ten years old, nothing really changed. Ever. Every day was basically the same. Until one day, when Janice freaked at Vanessa for whacking her on the head with the end of a broom while she violently swept the floor. Vanessa couldn't help but finally blow - screaming and yelling at Janice at the top of her lungs. Her father had rushed into the room just as Janice smacked Vanessa straight across the face. He begun to yell wildly at Janice as Vanessa glared and rubbed gingerly at her cheek. This ticked Janice off too much - she morphed into a beast that had gross bat-like wings. Vanessa's eyes grew wide. Her father just kept screaming as he 'pretended' not to notice. Vanessa pushed her father out of the way just as Ja- the beast lunged with her claws outstretched. The harpy screeched in pain as she slammed into the fridge. James sat on the floor, dazed and confused. Vanessa grabbed his hand and dragged him out of the house and into the busy neighborhood. A boy watched as they ran, his walker propped against his skinny legs. Te harpy came after and just as Vanessa looked forward, she caught a glimpse of a hoof coming free from a shoe to try Janice, who went flying into a building and then fell straight into a manhole. The boy covered it and begun to follow James and Vanessa. Vanessa asked what was going on and he begun to explain that she had been living with a greek beast - one who was waiting until the demigod scent in her became prominent enough to know for a fact that she was a child of a god. He explained as much as he could - that he had hooves because he was a satyr and that he ca,e from Camp-Half Blood. He explained what it was and everything that she asked. Johnny asked that Vanessa came back to camp with him. She finally agreed and Vanessa had to tell her father that she was going away to a campus where she would live year round - only capable of visiting rarely. He was saddened by this but agreed. Vanessa and Johnny went directly to Camp, encourtering a few monsters along the way. Johnny, of course, guilded her on what to do when it came to killing them.

Children of Hecate have the ability to focus all their magical abilities into transforming themselves into any living being, or even a being of their own imagination. This power is, in essence, the ability to shapeshift into anything the user can imagine. The user can transform into another human, an animal, a monster, or anything in between. The transformation can last as long as the user wishes it to, but the longer they hold their form the more it drains them. They cannot cast any spells while the transformation is in place and they cannot transform into anything overly powerful. (Like a rabbit that can make people’s heads explode with a thought. ) The form they shift into cannot be larger than 2 to 3 times the human size of the user, and after the user resumes their regular form they are severely drained. Unable to move from exhaustion and they could possibly faint. This power can only be used once in a fight.
