Name: Nikola Kartos
Sexual Orientation: Straight
God Parent: Hades, Zeus, or Apollo
Mortal Parent: Nancy KartosAppearance:
Personality: Nikola is very intelligent, and she uses that to her advantage. Although she doesn't show it, she enjoys making people laugh with her dry, sarcastic humor. When you first see her, you'll think of her as a girl who is not looking to be in the limelight, and sort of dull. But when you get to know her, you'll see that she is very loyal, and takes trust very seriously, but lightens your day with personality. She has a short temper and she tries to hold it in, but tends to have angry outbursts which result in a few magical mishaps. Nikola tries really hard to make people think she doesn't have a care in the world, and that she hardly has any emotional issues, but truthfully, she's scared of judgement and getting hurt. She's scared of judgement from her father, her friends, even her enemies.
History: After Nancy Kartos got her degree in archaeology from the University of Waterloo, she got a job at the Royal Ontario Museum. Her main job was focused on Greek mythology, so she travelled to Greece a lot. She once got an invite to go to a small museum in New York for a dinner they were holding for talented individuals of her profession. There she met Hades, who was disguised as a wealthy sponsor for the museum. They shared a drink and talked for hours upon hours, completely ignoring time as it passed by. They were in love, Nancy didn't care he was a god, and were together for a year and a half. And then Nikola was born, named after Nancy's mother, and Hades disappeared right before Nikola's 1st birthday.
Nikola Katerina Kartos was born on June 11th, 2000 in Toronto, Ontario. From a young age she was very quiet, but had random fits, calling for her father. When she was 7, she and her mother moved to New York, to stay with her grandmother. Nikola always asked questions about her father, but her mother would brush them off and then go to her room and start to sob, and her grandmother would always say how evil of a man he was, and how he was a bad omen. Nikola didn't have very many friends as a child, but the one she had were close enough. Mason Bridges, they met at school when the popular girls, Cassidy and her friends, were picking on her, calling her such awful names that Hazel's school nuns would have had to wash their mouths out with EXTRA strong soap. He defended her, at the risk of becoming as lowly as Nikola on the social pyramid, but he didn't care. They've been best friends ever since. Then on a terrible afternoon in the winter of 2012, Nikola's grandmother died. This hurt Nikola more than anything ever before, but that pain was short lived because she discovered she could still talk to her grandmother, and even scary and interesting as that power was, she didn't tell a soul. Well, except for her father. Short after Nikola discovered her talent, her dad just dropped by after 12 years of no contact. As annoyed and angry and hurt she was, she was able to put that all aside because he told her that she was special because she was a demigod. "Does that mean I can blast Cassidy and her stupid possy to a billion little pieces?" He laughed that kind of dad laugh, deep and loving, but it had a cold-ish feel to it. When she asked what all this meant, he just smiled and told her to tell her mother he stopped by.
Nikola and Mason went out to dinner one night to a run down diner about half a year later, on Nikola's 13th birthday. They had a blast, eating and talking till past midnight. While they were waiting outside for her mother to pick her up, Nikola sensed something was wrong, She looked over at Mason and they exchanged nervous looks. Out of no where, Cassidy leaped out of the shadows. "Oh hey look...the freaks are having a little date! I think it's time I got rid of you two, you guys are REAAALLY messing up my inner balance." She leaped at them with incredible speed and agility, and had flaming hair and fangs, and a...donkey leg and a mechanical leg?. Nikola was awe struck. Even more surprising, she looked over at Mason and the first thing she saw was goat legs. GOAT. LEGS. He was fighting like it was his job or something. She thought for sure she was going insane. Maybe the same thing her dad has....can mental illness be hereditary? When she realized there was a full on battle going on while she was standing there gawking, she started to get angry. Really angry. She would talk to her grandmother about this, but oh wait, she'd dead. She finally met her dad, oh but slight problem, he's crazy. Maybe she could help her friend who's dying out there! Hmmm, actually no she can't because she'd get both of them killed. Her mother just happened to drive up the street too. Lovely. "Uhh, Nikki...I think your mom won't mind us using weapons in this case, so if maybe you could-" Mason then momentarily paused to bonk Cassidy in the head with HIS weapon, which was like this giant stick wrapped in leaves, which left her a bit phased. "-ya maybe if you could quickly grab those two shiny daggers out of my bag and maybe and help out a bit if you can?"
Nikola quickly recovered from her state of shock and did as Mason had asked. Whilst trying to save her friend she kept asking herself why she deserved this and why she was even trying, as she had never even used a butter knife let alone two wicked daggers, so she was basically going through her daily dose of self-doubt. Amiss all the chaos, she saw a small area of skin exposed from under Cassidy's designer clothes. Hey why not give it a shot...or die trying. She quickly stabbed the exposed skin, and poof, Cassidy exploded into an array of dust. Once again, Nikola was as confused as ever. "She's dead right?" "For a while, yea." "Awesome." Mason and Nikola raced to her to her mother's car, where her mother was sitting there, with the same awe-struck face Nikola had on moments ago. Mason gently guided Nikola to the back, while he took the shot gun seat. "Nancy, to camp. I think maybe flooring it would be a good idea too." And then they zoomed off to Camp Half-Blood. On the way, to her surprise, she found a pack of clothes was already there for her. After they reached camp and said their goodbyes, Mason showed Nikola around, and when they reached the Hades cabin, this sign glowed on top of her head, and it was the mark of Hades. "Oh well THAT'S a surprise." And thus Nikola began her journey as a half blood.
Weapons: A pair of Celestial Bronze daggers
So Hades had told her that he was a demigod or she didn't know so that's why she didn't care?
She didn't know, so she didn't care
As a child of Hades, she would have had a monster attack long before the age of 16. More like 11 or 12. Where exactly would this skeletal army have come from?
I changed it a bit. What bout now?

I don't think she would be able to channel her powers that easily when she got attacked.
Right, so I changed the attack to a level 1 attack, the corpse.

Direct interference isn't allowed
What if I have her defeat the dracaenae with weapons given to her by Mason? I was thinking two celestial bronze daggers.

That model is Nina Dobrev, and there has been two votes against allowing her on the wiki, so I am afraid you will need to find a new model.
What about Ruby Aldridge?
