"A memory is a photograph taken by the heart to last forever."
Blake is currently residing at the Sanctuary. He is a member of Veritum Unitum, and thinks the gods of Olympus should care more about their kids, especially since demigods always do stupid errands for them.
Personality
Blake never forgets a single thing anyone tells him. He is immune to amnesia, but sometimes feels like too much memories can be exhausting. He is also fluent in a lot of languages, and can generally learn a language very fast. He's kind to everyone except the gods, even people from Camp Half-Blood because he used to be one of them. If he had to kill one, it's just, "Hey, sorry about this, but I'm on a mission and I'll have to kill you. May you go to Elysium." It's also impossible to get his attention once he has his hands on a book he's never read before.
History

Ryan Monte was an English teacher at Eston Middle School. During summer break one day, he was planning out the next year's curriculum at his house when he looked outside at the neighborhood and saw a strangely-clothed woman taking a stroll through the neighborhood. He was unable to look away. He saw all his deepest memories in her, somehow. She looked surprisingly like his late wife, Isabel Monte. He knew it was not her - Isabel's nose was sharper, her eyes bluer - but still wanted to talk to this woman. He thought he had known her all his life, as she was (in his mind) a fellow English teacher, only for seventh grade. They had flirted in the teachers' lounge sometimes, and Ryan just wanted to greet her.

He thought her name was Emily Carter. He greeted her, and "Emily" greeted him back. Blake suddenly felt a surge of love for Emily (actually it was Mnemosyne, making Ryan "remember" he had a crush on "Emily") and, since they were so close to his house, why not rendezvous? So they made their way to the bedroom. It was nighttime, though, and "Emily" crept out of the house, making Ryan forget everything about her. However, she implanted some memories in his brain so that he wouldn't be too surprised when a baby appeared on his doorstep, four months later.

This made perfect sense to Ryan once it happened, even though it shouldn't have. Mnemosyne implanted memories of someone telling him about Camp Half-Blood. Ryan understood, and went on with life as usual, caring for the kid he named Blake and going to his PeeWee games. For a demigod, Blake had a pretty normal childhood. He liked football and baseball, thick books, and his dad. Simple. Sometimes he was teased for liking such big books, like Harry Potter, in first grade. He remembered every hurtful comment, which pretty much sucked for him. He never retaliated, just let the bullies tease him endlessly throughout elementary school and the beginning of middle school.

Little did he know that a satyr had come to get him. However, the satyr was doubting Blake's demigod-ness because of the lack of monster attacks.... Still, the satyr stuck to Blake just in case. He just didn't want to accidentally bring perhaps a clear-sighted mortal to camp.

Just when he thought the bullies were the worst problem in his life, at age thirteen, a whole flock of seemingly metallic birds attacked him outside. Blake hopelessly tried to fend them off, but the satyr came and did it himself by clashing two rocks together nearby. In the time it took, though, the satyr was pecked to death. Camp Half-Blood didn't hear about this incident until later, however. Plenty enough time for Blake to turn fourteen and have a harpy attack him. Fortunately, he had savaged the late satyr's sword. He sliced at the harpy's wing, making it fall to the ground. The harpy scratched a claw/finger across Blake's leg, and he cursed, but made several attempts to pierce the sword in the harpy's heart (as it was heavy for him) before finally managing it, on accident.

However, he had a MORTAL father. He did not know that his father knew about everything, and so discarded the sword, at his own risk (he wasn't very bright, despite the books). He didn't want any questions, because he thought they would worry his father and he wouldn't have answers anyway.

Finally, a satyr came for him. Blake stayed safe for another almost two years, right before his sixteenth birthday. Then a hellhound leaped at him from the bushes at school. The Mist made all the mortals think it was a loose poodle, and no one paid attention. The satyr did, though, and slashed at the hellhound's body, dissolving it into dust. He offered to take Blake to camp, and Blake agreed, happy for once to be safe.

When the satyr explained about him being a demigod, however, Blake couldn't help thinking, Why didn't my godly parent help me kill the monsters, then? Why didn't they help? Do they even keep in touch with their children? Do they care? He shook away those thoughts at first and journeyed the long way to Camp Half-Blood, turning sixteen along the way.

Finally, they reached camp. Blake was introduced and was overwhelmed by the vastness of it, but the satyr, Thomas, told him he needed a weapon. When they arrived at the armory, first Blake looked at the swords. Then he saw a bow and arrow out of the corner of his eye, and picked it up. He decided to take a walk out of camp borders, in the town, just to breathe in some non-demigod fumes for a while. Some demigods, he could swear, should seriously take a shower.

That was when he saw an odd boy, with a sword, walking around the town. Blake was certain he was a demigod because of the sword, but didn't know who he was. He casually asked the boy where he was staying. The boy eyed Blake's bow and arrow, and replied, "The Broken Covenant, of course. Aren't you one of the god's slaves? Don't you know better?" Blake asked him what he meant, and the boy explained about the BC and its factions. The boy was from Veritum Unitum, and rambled about how it was the best faction. Blake realized that his beliefs about the gods matched Veritum Unitum's exactly.

The boy welcomed Blake to the BC, and Blake happily obliged.

Word Bubble
Powers

Offensive

  1. Children of Mnemosyne have the ability to write/read weapons out of pure energy which can be used for combat; however, only one weapon can be conjured at a time and it cannot be bigger than the one who conjured it. They can also write/read other objects that are for non-combative purposes
  2. Children of Mnemosyne can launch orbs of ink which burst upon striking the target, temporarily obscuring their vision. They can only launch three orbs of ink at a time.

Defensive

  1. Children of Mnemosyne have the ability to write/read a shield of pure energy, roughly two to three times the size of the user, which will blunt most attacks but slow the movement of the conjurer.
  2. Children of Mnemosyne have the ability to revert time around them for a short duration in order to dodge an attack that was unforeseen. After doing so, this ability cannot be used for a while.

Passive

  1. Children of Mnemosyne gain memory of the contents of any written text - such as a book or a webpage - as soon as they lay eyes on it. They would still have to learn what it all means, however.
  2. Children of Mnemosyne have an eidetic memory and can remember every detail of a previous fight with an opponent.
  3. Children of Mnemosyne can see a few seconds into the future; allowing them to possibly predict the actions of others, but also obscuring their sight at times.

Supplementary

  1. Children of Mnemosyne are able to force everyone around them within a 10-meter radius to remember and dwell on an event from their past that emulates a certain emotion from the affected. The child of Mnemosyne can choose which emotion they would like their targets to feel, be it anger, sadness, happiness, ecstasy or anything in or ecstasy. The user cannot hold the targets under their control for more than a few minutes, and the effects of the power can cause those around them to become positive and motivated from their happy memory
  2. Children of Mnemosyne can use descriptive insults used both against themselves and their opponents to gain a temporary boost in speed and strength. The longer they maintain this boost, the more energy is drained.
  3. Children of Mnemosyne can read/write wings into existence. This enables them to fly; the longer they maintain this state, the more energy it drains. They must rest between flights and cannot make long distance traveling without resting often. However the wings are vulnerable to injuries and magic; they can also be customized to the user’s preference.
  4. Children of Mnemosyne have the ability to travel back and forth in time, but they are unable to interact with or change past events they are only able to see the events play out. When they go forward in time they only see “possible” futures, that does not mean those future events will come to pass.
  5. Children of Mnemosyne can view the memories of another person that they can see, in real time. They may struggle to zero in on specific memories, however, and the target can notice and resist them if they are too forceful.

3 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Mnemosyne can temporarily rewrite details about the battlefield they are fighting on in order to alter it and gain an advantage over their opponent. This could include things like temporarily eliminating the shadows on a battlefield if they are fighting a child of Nyx or temporarily drying up the water if they are fighting a child of Poseidon. The change takes effect gradually and only lasts for a moderate time. The more complicated the wording of the change, and the less clear their description of it is, the more the user is drained.

6 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Mnemosyne can manifest a person or creature from any book in order to temporarily fight alongside them. The manifestation cannot be larger than 2-3 the size of the user and will dissipate after a short time. The person cannot be overly powerful and the user will have a hard time moving while the manifestation is in place.

9 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Mnemosyne can morph into a state of pure imagination. This grants them flight, receive enhancement in some of their abilities (Offensive 1, Defensive 1, 3 Month and 6 Month) and invulnerability to attacks. This effect only lasts for a short time, leaving the user extremely drained and temporarily unable to move afterward.

Traits

  1. Children of Mnemosyne typically have excellent memories, unable to forget details from their past and are therefore immune to the effects of amnesia and other memory-related illnesses.
  2. Though most demigods struggle with dyslexia, children of Mnemosyne usually do so to a lesser extent because their mother is the goddess of the written word.
  3. Children of Mnemosyne can normally learn and decipher other languages incredibly easy. Ex: Hearing a woman speak Chinese would mean the user could somewhat understand even if they never heard the language before. If they then have a lengthy conversation with the woman in Chinese, they’d be considered fluent in the language afterward.
  4. Children of Mnemosyne often grow up to become great authors, English teachers, and historians.
