History: Their mother, Name Hye-sun was born in Korea and moved to Michigan with her parents when she was little. She grew up in the States and became a lawyer in a law firm, right after starting his own firm both of her parents died in a blizzard, trapped in their car overnight. One day she was out at a bar and she met a charming young man named Jason. They filtered and offered to buy her a drink. Then two, and then three. One thing led to another and Hye-sun spent the night with him and woke up in a hotel room by herself. She was a little upset but moved on, dismissing it as a one night stand, until she discovered she was pregnant with twin girls. She decided that it was a sign to stop her reckless lifestyle of drinking and one night stands and start a family. She worked at her law firm until one winter night, when she gave birth to the girls. She sold her law firm to her partners and settled down in a house with the twins, hiring a nanny with the money she made to help take care of them while she found another job at a law firm. Now with the extra money, she didn't have to rush to find a new job. She found one, and the twins grew up, attending school at age 5. One day, during their first year of school (when they were 6), Hye-sun was in a rush to pick up the girls from school, being almost two hours late (the nanny was sick). Hye-sun wasn't paying attention and slammed her car into another, and died on impact.
Min Jin and Min Ky were alone. Child Services placed them into a foster home with a woman named Rebecca, who already had other foster kids and took kids in to get check from the government. They were together, but their foster home was hell. They slept locked in the laundry room whenever they were "bad girls" and they only could sleep in beds when they were "good girls", but their foster mother always found excuses to keep them in the laundry room. They were rarely fed meals at home, only when a social worker came. Their foster mother found joy in torturing the kids, because she was a very sick woman who needed help that she never got. She always put on a show when the various caseworkers showed up. They endured together, finding strength in one another. They tried their best to spend as much time away from the house as possible. Min Ky volunteered at the local library, Min Jin started to play sports. They made excuses for bruises, they lied to their teachers and caseworker. When they entered middle school Min Jin picked up the cello and Min Ky the violin. Min Jin even joined the soccer team. They never lived, they simply existed. They survived, their only support from one another. Not even their other foster siblings cared much about them, too concerned on themselves to notice much more. They wanted to tell what was going on, but Rebecca threatened them, saying that they would be separated if they were removed from the foster home.
Finally, when they were 10, they decided they had enough and they ran away from their foster mother's house. Of course, they had no plan, they were 10 after all. They stayed holed up in an alleyway for a few days before they were picked up by the police. When questioned, it was Min Ky who spilled everything, cracking under pressure. Min Jin gave up when Min Ky told, and she backed up her sister's story. Rebecca was arrested, the other foster kids removed, and Min Jin with Min Ky were placed in a new foster home, this time with a married couple named Dawn and Eric, newlyweds couldn't couldn't have biological children.
Eric was a demigod, the son of Notus who wasn't too much of a threat to monsters. Fawn was also a demigod, a daughter of Ariadne. They were kind and understanding, dealing with the twins' hoarding of food which they were so used to for so long and anger issues. They also knew that something was different about the girls, but they weren't sure until their first monster attack at age 11, when a hell hound suddenly burst into their backyard where Min Jin and Min Ky were. They freaked, and Fawn saw the hell hound from the porch. She rushed outside, her weapon, a spear, blazing. She took down the hell hound, barely, and took the girls inside. She understood now, called Eric home from worked, sat the girls down and talked to them about their parents. Fawn and Eric explained about everything, the gods and the monsters. The girls were completely scared, and when they started to talk about camp, they thought they were trying to get rid of them. Min Jin and Min Ky refused to go, and Fawn and Eric couldn't force them. They loved their foster daughters.
So they decided to at least train them. Fawn worked with the more brute force Min Jin and Eric with the gentler but quicker Min Ky. They picked it up quite well, and soon knew the ins and outs of sword fighting. On their 12th birthday, three things happened. First, they were legally adopted by Fawn and Eric. Secondly, two snowflake necklaces had appeared on their nightstand, matching ones. One turned into a spear, which Min Jin took, another into a sword, which Min Ky took. They showed it to their parents, who assumed it was a gift from their father, which was right. Third, they were attacked again, this time by a giant scorpion, but they were prepared this time. They took it down together, as a family. Fawn and Min Jin attacked, stabbing it's fleshly underbelly while Eric and Min Ky distracted it. They took down a monster and went out for ice cream afterwards, an oddly perfect day to the turn of events that had taken place. They were attacked three more times before the turned 15, once while Min Jin and Min Ky were at a park. Min Jin and Min Ky were tossing a ball back and forth when their was a sudden screech. It was a harpy. The harpy swooped down from out of nowhere and started to claw at Min Ky. Min Jin drew her spear, but she couldn't quite get the harpy. Neither could Min Ky, because when ever they tried to stab at it, the harpy would fly up above the strikes and come back down to claw at them again. Min Jin threw her spear manged to clip the wing, injuring the harpy and making it unable to fly away. With the harpy unable to fly, Min Ky pulled on it's hurt wing and Min Jin stabbed in it the chest, sending it to dust.
The second time was by a pack of Stymplian Birds, while the entire family was on a road trip to vist Fawn's family in Kalamzoo, about an hour from where they lived. They were taking a break at a gas station when the birds suddenly flew in, the birds flying in and picking at their skin. It was actually Fawn who stopped this one, she threw the book she had be reading on the road at a metal sign advertising low prices on gas and that made the bird fly away. Min Jin was a little embarssed that all she could do was watch her mother take care of the problem, and she swor she would learn how to protect her sister better.
The next time, on the eve of their 15th birthday, at a store. An empousa who had been working at the counter jumped them. It was about to strike Min Ky when Min Jin pushed her sister out of the way and got severely injured, her shoulder hurt. Min Ky tried to stop the bleeding as Eric and Fawn took town the empousa, cutting of its head. With Min Jin injured, Eric and Fawn decided they were going to to take the girls to camp, no matter what they had to say about it.
They drove all night, with Min Jin barely awake for the whole trip. They had given were ambrosia and nectar, but it was infected, and it could only be treated by someone who knew what they were doing instead of just the first aid that Eric and Fawn knew. They made it to camp just as the sun was rising. Eric and Fawn carried Min Jin in, to the infirmary, where they all waited for her to wake up, when she finally did, Min Ky and their parents were relieved. Eric and Fawn talked it over, and decided to leave the girls at camp while they went back home. They had already spent their younger years at camp, and they had made the choice to leave. Besides, they wanted the girls to have a home to return to if they ever needed, and they couldn't leave their jobs. They kissed the girls goodbye and left them at camp to learn how to survive the world as demigods. That's when they were claimed, and the rest is history.
Min Jin: snowflake necklace that turns into CB spear
Min Ky: snowflake necklace that turns into a sword
Hallo! This is an excellent claim you two have got going here. :3 I still found a thing I'd like to
nitpick question, though, but it's pretty minor:
- 4 demigods living in the same place (2 adults and 2 pre-teens) would attract monsters earlier and/or attract more monsters than usual.
That's basically it and it's good as claimed. :D
