Brooklyn Carmichael was an accident. She wasn't even supposed to be born but, what do you expect when a drunk god of messengers goes down to earth and sleeps with the first girl he met.
Kylie Arrington, an average american girl who lived in New York, was working late one night at the bar she worked only part-time at. The bar was completely empty and Kylie was just about to close up until a man burst through the door and stumbled up to the bar.
"Sorry sir, I was just about to close up." Klie said while drying of some shot glasses and give the male an annoyed look. "Just one drink please?" Hermes, who introduced himself as William before, said while looking at the bartender and giving her his best puppy dog look. After some minutes of convincing, Kylie finally decided to give the man a drink. Surprisingly, she ended up talking to the man for hours and even had a few drink with him. This wasn't so strange for Kylie as she was a rebellious and wild girl herself so, by the end of the night the two ended up at Kylie's apartment in bed. That next morning Kylie woke up with a massive headache and only slightly remembering what had happened the night before. "Aghhh..." She groaned as she rolled over to see if the man was still there, which he wasn't. It wasn't exactly surprising and Kylie hadn't expected the man to stay for breakfast or anything.
After only a couple weeks, Kylie figured out that she was pregnant and knew that the man she had slept with was the father. Of course she didn't have the financial stability to care for a child so, after having the baby she left it at the door step of a foster home she had heard of.
For a few years, Brooklyn grew up in the foster home that she was left at but - do to having to many children there she was transferred to another foster home, at the age of three, where she met a girl named Charlie. The couple that had taken them weren't met to grow feelings for the two girls but, they did. When Brooklyn and Charlie turned 4 the couple asked to adopt the two and succeeded, becoming their adoptive parents.
For the firts ten years Brooklyn & Charlie had a good childhood, the two sisters becoming inseparable at that point, doing almost everything together. Unlike Charlie, who was a dancer and painter, Brooklyn liked to learn about cars from their father and how to fix other things around the house. she also enjoyed learning her way around a computer, even learning to find back doors into them.
First Monster Attack:
Do to the adoptive mother also being a demigod, the two sisters were attacked earlier than the average demigod. It was when they were around 10 that a group of harpies attack the trio at a park thy had been at that day. Of course the sisters were terrified, not knowing what was going on at all. The mother however was trained and went into action to protect her daughters. Finally after a long battle with the harpies, the mother dragged the sisters home in a panic.
In the beginning, she believed that maybe they were unlucky mortals who could see through the mist and she tried to get the names of each of their parents but was only able to produce their fathers. Realizing that both were demigods, she decided the best course of action was to just tell them the truth with her husband nearby. brooklyn accepted this with hesitation. After this revelation, the mother started to train them whenever she could. She gave them some of her spare weapons. Brooklyn chosing a Celestial Bronze katana. They were also given the option for camp but the two sister decided against it.
Each year, for the nest 4 years, they were attacked by different monsters. Some times they were together, sometimes they were not. Luckily for them both, they were well trained by their mother and were able to fend off the monsters that came their way.
Life Hit By Tragedy:
It all changed, though, when they were fourteen. The four of them were out on vacation in some remote place. Due to the numbers of demigods, a more powerful monster came to investigate. A cyclops. Spying easy prey, it soon attacked and during the fight a small pack of hellhounds were also dragged over.
Unable to defend all three, the mother was able to bring down the cyclops with minimal help from the sisters but was slaughtered by one of the hellhounds. In their desperation, the sisters were able to bring down the others. Their home life grew gradually worse after the death of their mother due to their father’s grief. Though it technically was not their fault, he believed since the both of them were demigods, they caused more than one monster to come attack unlike what would have happened if it had just been the mother and him. He began to take out his grief onto them and both girls copped beatings through the next two years. The only good thing his grief did was cause monsters to stay away from them due to his stench.
On The Run:
When they were sixteen, Brooklyn being her big mouth self tried to stand up to their father. Of course it didn't work and their father began to beat Brooklyn, giving her a multitude of bruises and cuts. Unbeknownst to Brooklyn, charlie had entered the room and finally snapping, she grabbed one of the wooden statues on the hallway table and hit him over the head with it–killing him instantly. Not knowing what else to do, the two sisters packed a bag and left into the night. Stealing their father’s money and car. For two months, they traveled the country without knowledge of where camp was. They never bothered to ask. They got by through staying low and stealing whenever their supplies emptied, Which Brookly had to do. She didn't mind though as she knew her sister hated stealing and with the events of her their fathers death, Brooklyn didn't wanna put any more pressure on her sister. During these two months, the sisters turned 17.
Meeting Friends & Getting To Camp:
Eventually, they run into Sophia and Valerie and upon realizing the other two were heading to camp, they begged for the two girls to take them along. For another two months, they did well. The four defeated every monster that passed them and all of them were able to grow closer to each other, to the point of trusting each other with their lives. Finally, the four girls were able to make it to Half-Blood Hill, ready to start their new lives in a safe place. Suddenly, four Empousai jumped out from behind the tree's - probably waiting for new demigods to eat. The four girls fought long and hard and even campers from camp came to help the group of girls fight off the monsters. Just as they were about to finish off the last beast, it lunged at Brooklyn - wanting to take at least one of them down with her. The claws of the Empousai bug into Brooklyn's neck before it bursted into golden dust. Arrows from the other campers flying into the beast and killing it.
Coming Back From Death:
Brooklyn, who had closed her eye's out of fear, finally open them - however she was no longer on Half-Blood Hill. Instead she was in dark place, fog filling the floor and the sound of screams in the distance could be heard.
"What's happening?" Brooklyn thought as she looked up and saw that she was in a line, a line full of ghost! "Oh Gods no...." She thought as tears began to swell up in her eyes. she wasn't sure but, she was she was now in the underworld and dead.
All the daughter of Hermes could do was follow the line, ready to except wahtever judgement she would get. Suddenly though, after what seemed like hours of waiting - Brooklyn's vision blurred and it seem as if she were moving at a extremely fast pace. Finally, her eye's cracked open and all she could see was her 3 friends kneeling over her, tears in their eye's. "What happened?" she asked and finally Valerie explain to her how she brought her back to life with the help of the goddess Circe. She also explained the her powers had drained.
With that the three girls walk into the camp, ready to start their lives.
