Mortal Parent: Laura Gayton

Appearance: He has blonde hair and blue eyes. He is 5 foot 6 inches tall. He has a well toned body because he is a competitive swimmer. Personality: He’s a bit of a loner. He is very shy. Well in high school he was bullied a lot because he was gay. He doesn’t make friend easily and it takes awhile for him to trust people. He always thinks things through before he acts.


Eros/Apollo: James mother owns a flower shop in New York. She fell in love with one of her best customers. When the guy found out Laura was pregnant he left her. James resents his dad for leaving him and his mother. The only contact from his father is a bow and arrow that he got when he was 10. He didn’t touch the bow and arrow and it hangs in his mothers shop. When James was 14 people at school found out he was gay. To get away from the tormenting he would help out at his moms shop. When James was 16 he was helping out after school in his mother’s shop. The shop was empty except for him and another employee when a strange woman came in to the shop. The woman turned into a harpy. James grabs the bow and arrow and shoots the harpy. The other employee saw everything that happened. The other employee turns out to be a satyr. The satyr tells James that he needs to go to camp half blood. James quickly writes a note to his mom explaining what happened and the satyr leads James to camp.

Thanatos: James mother told James that his father died before he was born. James had a normal life until he was 12. When he turned 12 he was able to tell when people he knew would die, even before it was publicly announced. He also started to hear voices quietly whisper to him. He never told anyone about these two things for fear of being called insane. When he was 14 people found out he was gay and would tease him about it causing him to spend a lot of time in his room. Well in his room he would start to talk to the voices that he heard. When he was 16 during the first day in school one of the cheerleaders started to lead him away to a deserted part of the school. The cheerleader first tried to charm James but it wouldn’t work on James. Then the cheerleader turned into an empousai. James hears a voice in his head telling him to get to the shadows. James stumbles back in to a shadow and somehow gets transported in front of someone who looks like the grim reaper. The grim reaper person says that he is Thanatos and that he is James father. Thanatos then tells James that the only safe place for him is camp half blood. James shadow travels to the border of camp half blood and crosses it.

Weapons: Eros/Apollo: a celestial bronze bow and arrow that is a gift from his dad, Thanatos: a stygian iron sword
