Jordan Bellemore, Caitlin's father, is known as the best chef in the town that they lived on for most of her childhood. He joined competitions and usually won. The one thing he couldn't win, was unfortunately, a girl's heart. He was a hopeless romantic who has been turned down so many times that he couldn't even count them anymore. Aphrodite took pity on him and the two ended up together after Jordan met Aphrodite, in her human form, in another cooking competition. The two had a female child and named her Caitlin. Aphrodite told Jordan to take care of her and that he should bring her to Camp Half-Blood if trouble arises, otherwise known as monsters who will be frequently attacking them in the future.
A few days after Caitlin was born, Jordan and Caitlin left their previous town in favor of New York. Over there, her dad opened a restaurant and it served as their main source of income. Caitlin grew up without knowledge that her mother was Aphrodite as Jordan told her a lie that her mother was a model somewhere in Paris, and that contacting her would be almost impossible because she was always busy.
While in New York, Jordan taught Caitlin how to cook delicious food for herself. At the age of 10, her cooking skills were already enough to impress her father, who, at that time, had been known in New York for having great food and amazing cooking skills.
When Caitlin hit 12 years old, Jordan promised to give her a party at their restaurant that she will never forget. And she didn't, because during that day, a harpy, disguised as her father's friend, transformed and attacked Caitlin. This was her first monster attack. The harpy trashed the restaurant, but it was forced to flee after Jordan threw a flurry of items such as broken chairs, tables, knives, etc.
Jordan decided to close the restaurant temporarily as they hid somewhere in San Francisco, California. When Caitlin turned 14, she became a model which boosted her confidence, especially when she walked on the runway for the first time. It was also at this age when she experienced another monster attack at her second show, but again, it was handled by his father who helped her get away. When she finally turned 17, Jordan decided to finally take his daughter to Camp Half-Blood because she has been attacked by monsters at least once a year ever since she turned twelve. He hopes that she will learn how to defend herself in camp.
