God Parent:Athena, Nemesis, Nike
Mortal Parent:Jacob Hope
Appearance:Black hair, eye color ranges from light grey to almost black
Personality:Courageous, brainiac-smart, wise for her age, never lets a wrong go un-avenged, compassionate, mostly introverted, kind, mostly clearheaded, darkly humorous. Deathly afraid of spiders.
Current Age: 14
History: Her father was a marine fighting overseas, having enlisted to earn money so he could go to college and get his engineering degree. He met Aaren's mother, who was posing as an allied forces soldier, when she saved him from being finished off by the enemy. *love at first sight* Jacob was rather torn when his tour ended, afraid he would never see the mystery woman again. Then, a year later, Jacob ran into his savior while on patrol in NYC (he had gone into the reserves and was now a cop and taking online engineering classes.) Two years later, on November 13th, Aaren came along and her mother disappeared, leaving only a note. On the envelope, written in pristeen hanwriting, was this: Do not open until your 15th birthday.
Aaren's childhood was stressful. She was always having nightmares. Spiders, people she loved being hurt, more spiders. Then, when she was five, her father was murdered by a person in black. Literally secondls later, a young hellhound attacked the poor traumatized tot. She got lucky, though, because the Hunters of Artemis arrived just in time to save her. Aaren, frightened of these newcomers, ran.
Aaren grew fast, training and fighting and trying to find out who killed her father. She hid and ran all over the country, accompanied by two older demigods, both 15. She became an expert with every weapon imaginable in the seven years she was traveling. On her twelfth birthday, she and her two companions were running from a pack of hellhounds and got chased into/stumbled upon Camp Half Blood. After only a few days of constantly feeling as though she didn't belong, she left.
Aaren has never gotten along well with people; they always want to pity her fate, and that gets them, and her, into trouble. She's had to run from the cops more times than any fourteen year old should have to. She's also had to hide from gangs more than any fourteen year old should have to. During her search for her father's killer, she's gotten into a lot of trouble with the forces of evil, rouge demigods and monsters included. Her bold, brazen attitude has gotten whole gangs out for her blood. Every night, she takes out the letter from her mother and just stares at it, wondering who her mother is and absorbing the safety that little envelope gives her.
But now she's tired of being alone. After many conflicted nights, she has decided to return to camp.
Weapons: She can fight with anything, but prefers to use her twin Celestial Bronze daggers for their steath. That and because they were a gift from her mother.
Who was the person in black? (she doesn't know yet.) A dragon? (yes, a dragon. i like my monsters big.) How old was she when her father died?(five. it says so up there) The hunters left after? (aaren ran from them) Who were the other demigods?(lily brochester (daughter of aprodite) and hampton biggs, son of hephaestus. they don't actually exist, so i didn't put their names.) How did they just "stumble" upon camp?(they were chased in.)
Who was the goddess posed as that she was close enough to the fighting to save his life?(allied forces soldier) When did Aaren come to be?(November 13) Also generally Athena goes for people who stimulate her intellectually, how did saving his life do that?(reread it)
How has she already done so much and challenged people to fights if she's only just got to camp? (she's been at camp for two years, bud. two years is a long time.)
She can't have been at camp for the last two years, the wiki will be two years old in April, and as you haven't been on the wiki roleplaying with her, means she could not have been here for the last 1 year and 10 months, you can say she came to camp once and awhile prior to nearly 2 years ago, but not since
(that's stupid. sorry, but this is way too nitpicky. who cares? but ill change it anyway. >:| )
How would she have been at camp in the last 1 1/2 years, no one knows her, you can't just make a character and say that everyone needs to pretend they've known her all along, it doesn't work that way, if you don't like it, that's really not my problem, she's either just getting to camp now for the first time, or you explain why she hasn't been there for the last 1 1/2 years but had been here prior to that
(i know its not your problem, and i wasn't meaning to get snippy with you, but this is just a tad bit ridiculous.)
How is it ridiculous though? I mean how would you decide which characters they know and which they don't? I mean if they've been at camp over the course of the last 1 1/2, nearly 2 years, they'd know a ton of campers, which means you'd have to talk to all the users for the character's you want to say they know and get their permission to say they already know that character, then I mean you say they've fought characters, well which ones, how'd the fights turn out, if you imply they've fought characters that have been rp'd for the last 2 years and won, that's godmodding, so again you'd have to go and talk to users and it would be a lot of work just to say they've been at camp all this time. (OKAY! jeez, man, i changed it. just drop it.)
Now there's the issue of why a dragon attacked a 5 year old? Even children of the big three wouldn't start attracting monsters until at least 7 to 9 and other children would be more like 9 to 11. Here's what I'd suggest, trying to rationalise a 5 year old living on the streets for 7 years with a couple of 10 year olds is completely unrealistic, if you're determined for her to be 14 now, I'd suggest maybe having the father die at 10, the huntresses take her to camp, she stays for 2 years but misses home, maybe she finds out she had an aunt, she decides she doesn't want to be at camp, goes to live with the aunt, but Artemis feels bad for her and sticks a couple of huntresses nearby in case monsters attack, by then she'd have some training and if she had someone watching out for her she should be fine, then at 14 she decides she wants to start going to camp again, and poof here she is.
(now read it,bucko.)
>.< sorry about the rant, it's just in the last 48 hours I've had 5 people/newbs (well 4 besides you) put the whole been around camp for the last 2 years in their claim, and no one seemed to want to change it or understand why it didn't make sense, so I was at a breaking point >.<
