WIP (though along the lines of mostly serious yet he can have some form of fun when he likes someone and enjoys their company.)

Ryu Kyung-Sook was described as magical in every single way possible. From his childlike appearance at the age of 25, to his seemingly perfect charm. Some even liked to say that his work ethic had to be spawned from something magical. The most magical thing about him, however, was his imagination and ability to create brilliant stories. It was this magic and way of words that attracted two goddesses; Hecate and Mnemosyne.

Both goddess were enticed by his talents and a small feud between them ensued as both wanted his attention. However hard Mnemosyne tried she always found herself losing to Hecate and became slightly angry when Kyung-Sook chose the aforementioned over herself. Since that day, Mnemosyne promised to watch over the child and choose to effectively strike at the right time.

Straying back to the topic of Kyung-Sook and Hecate’s relationship, the two had come to an agreement that a one night stand, no matter how much they were interested in the other, would suit them both much better and that afterwards they could go their separate ways.

Nine months later (20th March 1996) there was a knock at the door and Kyung-Sook found Hecate at his door again, holding a baby in her arms. After a small conversation Kyung-Sook learned the basics of a demigod child and took the child in, naming him Kyung-Jae.

For the first few years of his life, Kyung-Jae lived a near poverty life due to his father barely making enough money to comfortably finance the two of them, and as such Kyung-Sook wasn’t able to give his son many gifts year-round. Being young and somewhat oblivious, this meant nothing to Kyung-Jae who had unknowingly became the inspiration for his father to push for a better life. What books Kyung-Sook did publish were popular in the Western world primarily and he made the bold decision to relocate to Toronto, Canada when Kyung-Jae was four.

After the move, Kyung-Sook’s books became increasingly popular and he decided that his son and himself needed English names. Hence, he renamed them to Caden and Cameron respectively. Growing up in a new country was surprisingly easy for Caden - he picked up the language easily and soon became among the best pupils in his grade.

This new-found happiness was short lived as Cameron’s books lost their popularity and in a vain attempt to regain his influence, he relocated a second time to Manhattan, New York. There, the popularity began to increase again, however not to the scale he had once experienced in Canada. It was there that the perfect family life that Cameron had tried so hard to create began to deteriorate slowly. At first, it was the poor communication that the two shared, but soon it manifested to Cameron slowly becoming addicted to a range of drugs and alcohol and soon their apartment became known as among the best crack places in the section of the city they lived in. At only 9 years old, Caden began to detach himself from his father in order to have a somewhat peaceful life at school.

For the next 4 years, Caden’s life consisted mainly of school with him trying to spend as much time as possible within the school walls and not at home. After yet another uneventful birthday, this one happening to be his 13th, Caden returned home to find a strange person in his apartment who watched him and paid pretty much full attention to him (the usual customers never blinked an eyelash in his direction after the initial meeting). The strange person continued to have their eyes fixated on him for a further hour before pouncing, its human disguise changing into that of a harpy, talons aimed for his head. Although he had no training and no experience with any Greek monsters, Caden knew somewhat about each monster due to the mythology he had studied as an extra studies given to him by his history teacher. Quickly, he identified the monster and ran to the closest door - the door to the bathroom. Luckily for him, his father’s paranoia of being broken into had caused him to somewhat burglar-proof the doors by adding a thin layer of metal on either side. This meant the harpy was delayed by a few seconds, allowing Caden to jump from the window and onto the pavement a floor below. Now running back to the sanctuary of the school, Caden found that the harpy was no longer following him, but rather a pile of golden dust behind him. Looking for an explanation, all he saw was a mysterious figure winking at him, a bow being shoved into their bag. Despite this attack, Caden decided that living with his father was a thing he no longer wanted to do and went a few floors above to where he found the floor inhabited by a range of homeless kids, all of which made their money by dancing.

Although bad at it originally, Caden soon picked up on dancing and quickly became among the best in the group, always earning the most money. Unofficially, he became the biggest provider of the group and there was a small amount of demigods in the apartment that made it their personal mission to protect him from all monster attacks.

As the years went on Caden continued to gain money for the group, all whilst being protected by a group of demigods who slowly, also as the years went by, got smaller and smaller as the members got killed off one by one. On his final attack - and 17th birthday - the final protective member died and Caden was left (practically useless on fighting knowledge, excluding some basic techniques with a mace that he’d been taught) to fend for himself. He remembered the final person as they were dying mentioning a place where people like him went to. Although still being chased, Caden managed to get into a cab (the driver happened to be a demigod son of Hermes) and the two sped off to camp where Caden’s been ever since.

  1. Children of Hecate are able to create a protective dome of magical energy around them for a short time.
  2. Children of Hecate are able to become ethereal in form for a short time, which temporarily causes all attacks to go through them. In this state, they cannot attack an opponent and if they do their ethereal state will dissipate instantly.

  2. Children of Hecate are innately stronger at night.
  3. Children of Hecate are able to communicate with the dead to gather information.
  4. Children of Hecate are adept at making potions and elixirs, however potions used in battle cannot be overly powerful or altering to the events of the battle. Potions that can automatically heal all wounds or restore all energy are examples of over-powered potions. Only descendants of Hecate/Circe and Lampades can create potions. Overconsumption of potions can result in overdose symptoms and some potions could have side-effects or not work at all.


  1. Children of Hecate can conjure spells to teleport themselves and allies. The further the distance, the more energy drained.
  2. Children of Hecate can cast a levitation spell on themselves for a short time which will allow them to fly, the longer they levitate the more power it drains. The spell can also be used items and enemies.

3 Months After a Character is Made

  1. Children of Hecate are able to control the Mist around them, allowing them to create optical illusions that can fool even demigods. The illusions can confuse enemies with false memories, alter the appearance of the user or their allies, change the appearance of items or weapons or even alter the appearance of the environment to an extent. Changes to the Mist only last for a short time, mist control is less draining than custom spells. (6 month)

6 Months After a Character is Made

  1. Children of Hecate have the ability to create new spells, whether they were trained, self-taught or devised the spell on the fly. The spells can be minor, such as locating, summoning animals, divination or controlling emotions. Or they can be more advanced and powerful such as controlling the elements, pure magical energy, necromancy, curses and summoning monsters or magical guardians. Spells cannot be overly powerful or controlling. The more complex and powerful the spell, the more energy it drains from the user.

9 Months After a Character is Made

  1. 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.


  1. Children of Hecate typically love the magical arts, many of them are known for writing spellbooks. Her children have created/re-introduced and improved spells and techniques all over history.
  2. Necromancy is commonly a favored magical art among children of Hecate.
  3. Children of Hecate are known for being quite mysterious.
  4. Children of Hecate are often more active and exhibit better moods at night and in dark environments.
