Harmony Koo was a pretty ambitious young woman. At the mere age of 18 she was accepted into Julliard and quickly became an anticipated actress. Her parents had, fortunately for her, pumped in a large amount of their wealth for her to attend comfortably whilst her elder sister, Melody, was forced to find other means of making money. Harmony was golden in their eyes which all changed when she met one certain god. He was charming, charismatic and had Harmony falling for him at the first look. Yes, Eros had found the next victim of his infectious charms and she was more than willing. Overnight, just like that, Harmony had lost near enough all respect given to her by her parents. She never would have guessed that a positive pregnancy test would result in her being disowned, her dropping out of her beloved school and more so living in a cramped one bedroom apartment that sunk of urine.
Within nine months she gave birth to a young bundle of sunshine, Cael, who instantly brightened up her now dismal life. Whenever getting rent was hard Harmony found herself immersing herself in Cael and all the stress and worries would go away. At least Eros had the decency to come back and tell her about his identity, their son's identity and give her the mist form of Cael's future weapon - an opal pendant necklace. With a somewhat of a weight lifted from her shoulders, Harmony embraced what she thought would be a new thrilling life.
Sometime after Eros' visit Harmony met Leopold Monroe, a German-American man who swept her off her feet much like Eros had done a year prior. It was a whirlwind romance and by the time Cael was two he had become Cael Monroe. Life got better for Harmony and Cael as they moved into Leopold's penthouse and lived the good life - the desired life that Harmony had once dreamed of. Life was amazing for her; she married a man she loved, she had a son who meant the world to her and she was slowly getting acting classes with her dreams still intact.
Once again, however, Harmony's world would come crashing down around her when Leopold's company went bankrupt and he forced her into prostitution and stripping in order to pay the rent for their penthouse. To say Harmony felt worthless was an understatement and she spent many nights cuddling Cael and crying as she tried to reassure herself that everything would be fine. No matter how hard she tried Harmony could never muster enough courage to leave Leopold, always complying with his demands because she had convinced herself that she still loved him. When, and only when, did he become physically abusive did she leave - right back to that one bedroom apartment she had with Cael's hand in hers.
Whilst Cael attended school, 23-year-old Harmony began to rebuild her life slowly but surely. She got small acting roles which allowed not only her fame to go up for her natural acting skills but also her income, leading to her being able to afford rent for a two bedroom apartment by the time Cael was 6. The same year as her son's 7th birthday Harmony's mother contacted her and told her that she was accepted back by her upon the divorce of Harmony's parents. Promptly the two left for Harmony's mother's mansion on the outskirts of Brooklyn where Cael then and only then had a happy childhood.
When Cael was 14, however, he experienced his first monster attack. It was standard - cliché, even - in the form of a hellhound. Of course being the age he was he wouldn't know what to do when a massive dog-like creature began to chase you whilst you were on your way home from a detention for telling a teacher she looked uglier than a mutilated dick. And if that didn't freak Cael out, then the old man that walked with a limp jumping into action and attacking it certainly would've done the job. Cael promptly ran home without looking back. Later on, the old man returned to his home and began to converse with his mother and grandmother, much to Cael's horror. What scared him even more is the fact that the old man began to, I kid you not, began to train him in using a sword.
However strange Cael found it was incomparable to the skills he would pick up and the fact that these skills would save his life on a number of occasions until he was able to leave for Camp after being held back by his mother. There, he would meet up with his cousin, Jupiter.
Powers of a son of Eros:
Children of Eros can manipulate the thoughts of a person for a short period of time in order to make them able to only think about the person or thing they love or favor most. Once used on a person it becomes ineffective on that person for a moderate amount of time.
Children of Eros have the ability to focus an emotional energy beam out of their love, which will burn anything it touches.
Children of Eros can cause people of the gender they are attracted to, to lose all desire to attack them for a short time (in the case being that they are bisexual or pansexual etc it would be only people with the same gender of their current or most recent partner). Once the child is attracting someone, they cannot attack. So the power is purely defensive.
Children of Eros can generate a veil of the emotional energy from the feeling of love, the veil will protect them from damage for a short time, but cannot be used if the child does not have the love to fuel it.
Children of Eros cause anyone of the opposite gender to be, at least slightly, attracted to them, they also attract people of the same gender that consider themselves gay or lesbian.
Children of Eros are innately proficient archers.
Children of Eros have a partial resistance to charmspeak, charm-touch etc.
Children of Eros can detect emotional ties between different people, if they’re lovers, friends etc. and can find out about someone’s previous partners, including: if they had sex, and how long the relationship lasted. They can also easily tell their sexuality and ideal partner, it works better the more emotionally concerned the child of Eros is for the target.
Children of Eros can manipulate the feeling of love of people by either removing it or increasing it towards themselves or other people. This is temporary and requires a lot of energy, although using it towards oneself requires less than if it were towards other people. Ex: They can make someone love and admire them, or hate them, or make best friends hate each other, or two enemies feel love for eachother.
Children of Eros can infuse emotional love magic into their arrows or any other weapon in their possession, if the weapons hits the intended target, the target will temporarily fall in love with the first object or person they see for a moderate time. After which, the target is immune to further use of it for the rest of the fight. (Note:The Love magic works better when used with arrows though.)
Children of Eros can decrease or increase someone’s lust, such as increasing a desire for sexual intercourse or simply wiping it out. An increase in sexual desire can be resisted by sheer willpower and will only last for a short time, this depends on the magnitude of the target’s sexual desire before it was attempted to be altered.
Since their father was depicted as a winged god, children of Eros can sprout wings for a short time, 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.
3 Months After Character is Made
Children of Eros can infuse magic into their grasp, and ‘charm-touch’ another person into doing their will or revealing a secret to them. The person will remain under the control of the charm-touch for a few minutes or until control is relinquished, and the child of Eros must touch the skin of the person they want to affect. ‘Charm-touch’ is considered more powerful and can override charmspeak due to the fact the user must make physical contact with the target.
6 Months After Character is Made
Children of Eros are now able to channel their loving emotional energies to construct combative and non-combative objects, formed one at a time and no more than 2 to 3 times the size of the user, which takes on beautiful, magnificent and seemingly harmless appearances depending on the user's preferences. They can also create semi-living constructs under the user’s complete control. However, their ability to use the power, and control the construct, is hindered before or during use when they experience emotions that are like hate or malice. As these emotions are felt, the strength of the object begins to fade, becoming dull and brittle.
9 Months After Character is Made
Children of Eros can feed off the love they’ve given or received in their lives and become an embodiment of love. This would make them more powerful, immune to all attacks, enhancing their physical prowess and power over emotional energy they previously possessed. This only lasts for a short time, after which the user will be so exhausted they would lack the ability to even move for some time.
In some cases Children of Eros tend to be fiercely loyal and compassionate to their loved ones, friends, and family. In other cases, they love creating romantic strife. Cheating on partners, seducing others already in relationships etc.
Children of Eros tend to be very flirty and attractive, causing them to retain a youthful skin/hair/facial appearance than others after completing puberty.
Children of Eros tend to be very mischievous and cunning, often seen making plans to prank or matchmake other campers.
Children of Eros typically get along with children of Aphrodite.
