Name: Sydney Grace Aceti
God Parent: Athena, Aphrodite, Hecate
Mortal Parent: Mitchell Brian AcetiAppearance: Long dark brown hair and dark grey eyes
Personality: Because of the accident that happened to Sydney in middle school, her kind and warm personality were traded into a cold and harsh personality. She doesn't trust anyone any more except for her absolute close friends and her father. She is highly intelligent, and is basically a walking talking human computer. Her idea of fun is snuggling in her sheets in front of a fireplace and memorizing her dictionary.
Mitchell Aceti was a professor at New York University. One day, the university hired a new professor for History, her name was Cassandra (Athena), she had grown interest in Mitchell because of his high intelligence. When he first met her, they fell in love at first sight. Cassandra and Mitchell then started dating for a few months, until Cassandra had Sydney popped out of her head, and she fled for weeks, Mitchell didn't see Cassandra at NYU. A few days later, Mitchell came back from his work and a baby was on his doorstep in a cradle with a note. The note explained that baby was their child and that when she has her first monster attack to give her the letter. The note also explained that she was Athena and she couldn't stay with Mitchell because she had to return to her duties on Olympus. She also left Sydney a sword with owl decorations engraved on it.
Sydney was the joy of Mitchell's life. She was highly intelligent, she would sometimes help Mitchell correct the tests from the university. Sydney was socially outcast in elementary school, she was always the freaky genius kid who aced all the tests and always corrected the teacher. When she was 11, she was diagnosed with ADHD which gave kids a reason to bully her more. When she was in 8th grade, her only friend was the most popular guy in school, Daniel which was ironic. He was very sweet and one day when they were walking home together, he asked her to be his girlfriend which she agreed. They had a couple of dates which included Sydney helping Daniel with his homework or doing it for him, which she mindlessly agreed to do it because she was so in love with him.
The day she turned 13, Mitchell decided to tell her so he and Sydney sat on a couch and discussed about Athena about how she was a demigod and by her age she would attract monsters and had to go to camp one day. Sydney was silent the whole time and Mitchell gave her the sword. The next day when she was going to Daniel's house, she thought her father was crazy and left her sword at her house so Daniel wouldn't think she was weird she then looked into the windows of Daniel's house, Daniel was making out with Sarah Phillips, the head cheerleader. She cried and ran away until she went to the library to comfort herself by reading her favorite novels. She was half way through 'The Fault in Our Stars when suddenly a harpy started attacking her, she then starts shrieking and the library assistant who was Eric, a son of Mnemosyne took out his sword and quickly dissolved the harpy into ashes. He then told her that she was a demigod and had to go to camp. Very eager to get out of New York, she agreed to come was him finally thinking her father was correct. She first had to say goodbye to her father. Mitchell found her sword in her bedroom and gave it to her and waved her goodbye as she left her camp.
In the first few hours, Eric and Sydney had no monsters to face except another flock of harpies but Sydney had to the courage this time to slice them to ashes. Then, they finally reached the border. But it was guarded by a poisonous scorpion, Sydney fought the scorpion but it knocked the sword out of her hand and also knocked her onto the ground, it prepared to sting her face, but Eric popped back in and fought the scorpion and fell down when the scorpion forced him down. One hit would do to dissolve the scorpion. Sydney quickly picked up her fallen sword and with that hit from her blade, caused the scorpion to dissolve into ashes. She fell down from her lack of strength and Eric quickly got up and picked up a tired Sydney to camp.
Sydney stayed at camp for a few days but was homesick and regretted going to camp, so she stayed with Mitchell for the past two years even though she had been cheated on roughly and she did not want to encounter Sarah and Daniel again ever so Mitchell transferred Sydney to a different school, a private school for only girls. In the past two years, she had four monster attacks, two each year. In the first year, she was attacked by a cyclops and dissolved it with difficulty and her father found her on the ground and brought her home, the second attack was with another flock of harpies and with the help of Eric (who decided at the time to stay with her) quickly killed them. In the second year, the first attack was with a cyclops it knocked her to the ground and Eric struck the cyclops down, the last attack was with a hellhound which Eric had no problem killing. Then when Sydney was 15, Mitchell would be moving to England to work at Oxford and wanted Sydney to stay at camp so she could learn more about her mother and learn fighting skills for the future. Eric decided to pursue his dream of becoming an librarian and only decided to camp during breaks.
Weapons: Sword given by Athena
okay what? was the librarian a demigod? cuz i don't think a satyr would become a librarian :/ i figure he'd be a mnemosyne kid
i don't think that's how arachne kids work, hell i'm not even sure if she had kids
Okay, so how old is she now, exactly? You said For the last two years, Sysney was homesick and regretted going to camp Correct me if I'm wrong but did you mean like she's been at camp for two years then she went out again?
And how about Eric? What happened to him after?

yeah kit i think so and i think she's 15 at this point
Kane, I know you clarified things on chat but kindly put the info you told me in her history. Thank you :)
Like the age, as I've said. It's going to be a big help if you put her age when she got to camp and etc.

A harpy wouldn't "peck at her hair", it would just attack and try and kill her.
Seeing as you don't have a photo for your character, please add a bit more to their appearance. Okay, who is Eric? >.< It's never explicitly mentioned who he is. I'm presuming he's a satyr, but you need to add that. Also, please fix up the last part of the third paragraph. It's horribly confusing. Where was she staying with Mitchell. What was the school issue? At what age does she actually get to camp? What's the significance of England?
When Sydney is first dropped off to Mitchell, you mention that the note included the fact she'd be attacked by monsters and also a sword for Sydney. No explanation seems to have been given in the letter that Sydney would be a demigod or that her mother was a goddess, so why did Mitchell accept the information and the sword with no hesitation?
The harpy wouldn't pick her hair, she would just attack.
The claim's good actually but there's a teeny tiny problem. Saying she spent 2 years in camp is well... kinda impossible. I mean, if she stayed in camp that long, she had to know like A LOT of people already and stuff like that. Change the two years to something shorter.

Actually, it's been two years since she had been to camp
She couldn't have been at camp for two years.

No?, she stayed for a few days but returned to NY and in two years came back so she didn't stay for 2 years.
You need to add a description of some kind of mind connection the father forms with Athena. Athena is a virgin goddess so the only children she has are created from mind connections with people.
Defeating a manticore alone is suicide.
Why did it take them a few days to get from New York to Long Island?
It would only take a few hours to get from New York to Long Island
