This is basically my character...

Personality: Sapphire is very mischievous and sneaky. She loves doing pranks, listening to music, playing instruments and singing. She loves swimming and bonding with other campers. She's extremely social and will do anything to be liked, due to her fatal flaw being the feeling of inferiority. Sapphire is scared of being trapped in small spaces. She can be sweet, nice and loving towards her friends and family, but a total assassin when it comes to a battle.

History: Her mother, Jessica, was a Daughter of Hephaestus. She met Apollo in a bar while she celebrated her twentieth birthday. They immediately clicked, and still sober, they actually did 'it'. Apollo was deeply in love with Jessica, just like she was with him. They knew that a demigod and God couldn't be together, so Apollo left.

Throughout Jessica's pregnancy, Apollo made sure she was safe. Jessica gave birth to beautiful Sapphire on December 24, while snowing, thus giving Sapphire the nickname 'Snowflake'. Jessica would take Sapphire every single place she wanted and bought her basically everything, as she was an only child. Sapphire always went on trips. Her cousins would always include her on everything. She did slip into depression as a child, due to feeling inferior to her small school classmates, because they had a father and a mother, meanwhile Sapphire only had a mother. The students in her school bullied her for not having a father. They bullied her emotionally, not physically. Overall, Sapphire did have a happy childhood in a way, but a sad one it another. Yet, it all began going downhill when Sapphire turned 13.

Saphire and Jessica got attacked by a Scythian Dracaenae in their home. Jessica, already having experiences due to being a Daughter of Hephaestus, grabbed her sword. Momentarily forgetting about Sapphire, whom was waiting for her in the living room, she lured it to the living room. It immediately saw Sapphire and tried to attack, just to be stabbed by Jessica with her sword. Apollo knew he couldn't interfere directly, so he waited nervously up in Olympus, to send Hermes if needed. Luckily, nobody was wounded or killed. Except the dracaenae, that is. Jessica knew it was time to tell Sapphire about the Greek Mythology, in case of another attack. So, the next day, she calmly explained to Sapphire that Greek Gods were real. Sapp was quite shocked, but nevertheless accepted it.

A few weeks later, Jessica decided to move from California, where they lived, to Florida. They continued having a happy life, with no other monster encounter. One day, while the now 14 year old Sapphire was at the park, she saw a fire-breathing horse. Fearfully, she walked to where her mother was sitting, which happened to be nearby the park. She pointed at the horse, and Jessica's eyes widened. She pulled Sapphire to the nearby woods and tried hiding with Sapp there. It didn't work, as the horse spotted them. The fire-breathing horse lunged at Jessica, but she quickly brought out her celestial bronze dagger and slashed the horse, turning it into Monster dust. Jessica got tired of this and enrolled Sapphire in a class where they taught how to shoot Arrows. Sapphire learned very quickly, due to her father being the God of Archery.

Five months after Sapphire turned 15, she encountered a Harpy in her school. She lured the harpy to the empty school football field, successfully. She clicked the charm and her bow appeared with the quiver full of arrows. She grabbed an arrow and notched it. She steadily pulled and released, effectively hitting it in the chest. As it turned into golden dust, Sapphire mentally thanked her mom for putting her in that class and her father for her abilities with the bow and arrows.

She ran to her house, just to find her in the middle of the living room, unconscious and with blood all over her. Sapphire shook her awake, which worked. Jessica told Sapphire to get to Camp Half-Blood in Long Island, New York. She also told Sapphire to check under her bed, where there was a backpack with two sets of clothes, cash, drachmas, ambrosia and nectar. Sapp knew what ambrosia, nectar and drachmas were, as her mom explained it to her a few years earlier. She quickly obeyed and grabbed the backpack. Sapphire had asked her mom what had happened and Jessica replied with a "I was attacked by a dracaenae. Luckily, I killed it. I was fatally wounded, but your father healed me before you arrived." They agreed on one thing. It was getting too dangerous, so Sapphire would be staying year-round in Camp. When the time came, they'd decide what else to do. After their last good-byes, she left to the nearest bus station. Her mom couldn't take her because she had to much work. Anyways, Sapp got on a bus, and around two days later, was in New York. Frowning, she made her way to Camp Half-Blood, with a unknown teenage girl. Sapphire had encountered another monster attack, which she couldn't identify the monster, but was luckily saved by the girl. The girl identified the monster as a hellhound. Apparently, the girl was also a half-blood, and was going to Camp Half-Blood. This was going to be the girl's third year at camp. Apparently, her name was Lily, and she was a Daughter of Aphrodite. As they walked, they got to know each other a bit better. Once they got to Camp, Sapphire explained everything to the Camp Leader. She was immediately placed in the Apollo Cabin.

Weapons: Sapphire has a unbreakable Pandora Bracelet, with lots of charms. The charm in the middle, though, was an 'S'. The charm, if clicked, would turn into a beautiful gold-colored bow with a quiver on your back, containing Celestial Bronze Arrows.

Comments

Please write her age at the top of the claim. This claim is really confusing like how suddendly Jessica can gave Sahire the weapon her father left even though in the beginning of this history it says nothing of that. I dont think Artemis would offer her a spot let alone let her stay with the group. Anyway she would still receive attacks which you need to explain. Chiron is no longer here, the new person is Alexander the Great. She wouldn't go to Hermes' cabin she would now automatically go in Apollo's cabin. And anyway by the way you're describing this history she's 7 .-.. That model first of all would not be for a seven year old and anyway she has to be at least 12 because we don't allow kids any younger then that.

Adding onto Kat's comment:

  • Please expand on the history so that it's 3 to 4 paragraphs long covering:
    • How the mortal parent and god parent met.
    • Sapphire's early childhood (the years after she was born up to her first monster attack).
    • Sapphire's first monster attack.
    • How Sapphire got to camp.
  • Did Jessica in the end know that the man she met was Apollo?
  • Kindly elaborate more on Sapphire's early childhood, from after she was born up to her first monster attack.
  • 7 year old is too early for a child of a non-big three god to have their first monster attack, they usually encounter their first monster between the ages of 10 to 13.
    • While Jessica and Sapphire's scent combined may attract more monsters, a group of seven monsters' too much.
    • How come the hunters of Artemis happened to be there when Sapphire was attacked by the monster?
    • Please specify what species of monsters were they?
    • For each year, after her first monster attack, that Sapphire did not go to camp, please add and elaborate on another monster attack.
  • With Jessica being a demigod herself and her knowing that she's a demigod, their scent probably would attract more monsters than Sapphire's herself.
  • The arrows need to be Celestial Bronze, unless she's a hunter of Artemis, because it is the only type of metal fatal to monsters and is generally used by demigods.

  • Apollo can't just "defy the laws", since Sapphire is certainly by her mother during the monster attack, it's direct interference if Apollo came to heal Jessica when Sapphire's present. It's a rule among the gods and they all must abide to that rule.
  • It's unlikely for Jessica to kill three scythian dracnae, each requires 1 to 3 demigods to kill so 3 would require 3 to 9 demigods to kill.
  • It's just unrealistic for Sapphire to get a "good" or "lucky" shot upon a harpy. As a demigod with no experience or training in using a bow, it's extremely difficult to use the bow let alone get a perfect hit.
    • How does Sapphire know of Artemis and Apollo and decided to pray to them, was she told of the Greek gods by Jessica?
  • What happened to Jessica, why was she bloody and slowly dying? Was she attacked by a monster while Sapphire encountered the harpy?
  • Even if Sapphire could not identify the last monster on her way to camp half blood, please include that still.
  • From the flow of the history, Sapphire was 11 when she got to camp and she'd currently 16, if that's the case what has she been doing at camp for the past 4 to 5 years? As she wasn't roleplayed you can't assume she had participated in the events that occur nor that she has been interacting with other characters.

SappMalik' (talk) 16:20, July 7, 2014 (UTC) Jessica was bloody and dying because she got attacked by a monster, but Sapphire doesn't know that. Yes, it was when Sapphire encountered the harpy. No, she went to camp when she was 16. SappMalik' (talk) 16:20, July 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • Elaborate more on her early childhood, there's not much about it except that "Jessica would take Sapphire every single place she wanted and bought her basically everything, as she was an only child."
  • For each year, after her first monster attack, that she didn't go to camp, please add and elaborate on another monster attack.
  • Why didn't Sapphire give her mothe the ambrosia, it should be more than capable of healing her wounds, Sapphire wouldn't just let her mother die when she had a way to save her.
  • It's just unrealistic for Sapphire to get a "good" or "lucky" shot upon a harpy. As a demigod with no experience or training in using a bow, it's extremely difficult to use the bow let alone get a perfect hit.
    • It's not efficient to have a gold bow, gold is a dense and heavy metal so it would diificult to hold and may lower the accuracy of shooting an arrow.

  • For each year, after her first monster attack, that she didn't go to camp, please add and elaborate on another monster attack.
  • Apollo's a diety and god of healing and is capable of instantly healing almost any wounds at a quicker rate than even other Olympians. It's unrealistic that even he is unable to heal Jessica's wounds, fatal or not.
  • A stick is unlikely to even startle or stun a harpy as it isn't made of Celestial Bronze and since a harpy is capable of flying quickly, it can easily dodge any attacks Sapphire tries to land on it.

  • Furies serve Hades and will only attack demigods if Hades send them to do so. So kindly change choose another monster for that encounter.
  • Minotaurs are cateogrized under medium on our wikia and are generally used for quests, if they do attack demigod, it's a child of a big-three god.
    • Please choose another monster from those categorized as light in our monster encyclopedia.
