Name: Zachariah McLane

Gender: Female

Age: 16

Species: Mortal, Huntress

Mortal Parent: Gregory and Marissa McLane

AppearanceZachariah is a brunette with brown eyes. Her face shows she's a silent and kind girl, standing at the height of 5'6. 

Personality: She is at first a shy and quiet girl. She does well in school, but she mostly dislike by her schoolmates for some stupid reasons. She doesn't fight, but when real anger comes, she's fire burning a tree. Zachariah is also a kind and patient girl, and is very loyal to her friends and family.

History: Zachariah's parents, Gregory and Marissa, both loved history and mythology. They met because of the subject. They were both teachers in different schools but always meet in a particular Greek mythology museum. From talking about the stories into falling in love, they got married soon.

Marissa soon gave birth to their firstborn, a boy, and named him Luke. After two years, then came Zachariah. She and her brother got along well, and like their parents, they, too, learned to love legends and mythologies. Their grandmother, Melanie Agatha - Marissa's mother - told them the stories about monsters, gods, heroes and their adventures. Zachariah has Artemis as her favourite, while Luke chose Poseidon, for he loved swimming and water. Just water. Their grandma believed they were real, so both of them pretended they were real. But Zachariah made it more than pretend, she wanted to find evidence that they were real. And she succeeded in that.

It was just when she was 16, and was doing her Science assignments in a garden in their school.There wasn't anyone around,  and it was quiet. Then she heard a howl of a wolf piercing the silence. Surprised why there was something like that in their school, which wasn't even near a forest. She tucked her things in her bag and ran towards towards the sound.

Peeking around a corner, she saw a gray wolf lying on the ground, a silver arrow protuding from its neck. Curious, she neared the lifeless animal. What caught her eye was the arrow, shining very silver. She pulled it and examined the weapon. Near the nock, a word in different languange was etched: Αρτέμη. Artemis.

Sensing it was familiar with a weapon in a book she loved to read, she heard a growl from behind her. She turned, and saw a silver wolf snarling at her. Behind it was a black haired girl in a snowy silver parka and a bow in her hand and a quiver of silver arrows slung across her back. The girl smiled and took the arrow from Zachariah. Before she was about to walk away, she called her. "Are you a Hunter of Artemis?"

Zachariah knew it was impossible, and the girl would think she was crazy, but she only said, "If you want to be one, call her name, and we'll be there." And she disappeared suddenly.

Zachariah thought she was dreaming, then thought about the girl. For the first time ever, she was evry sure that the old stories  were real.

She practiced using a bow and arrow and how to handle a sword for certain reasons. Months later, she became an excellent in both weapons with the help of her brother and grandma, who believed her, and of course with the support of her parents (althought they didn't know why Zachariah trained). But after another two months, her parents and brother died in a car accident going home from Luke's graduation. Her grandmother Melanie came next because of depression and old age. To live, Zach got a sideline job at a bakery near her home.

Zachariah had a friend though. Through those times, she helped her get over with it. One time, Zach decided to ask her why she was almost gone for the whole year, that she only came back in summer. Her friend sighed, and told her a secret, for Zach is to be trusted. She told her all about Camp Half-Blood, demigods and others. Zach told her that she believes. Happily, her friend tried introducing the camp to her, as Zach also told her about meeting some of the Hunters.

Zachariah was happy to see those stories were real, and her friend kept visiting her at home and help her practice. But one time, she walked through the forest near the borders of the camp. She felt tired of life already. Yes, she has her best friend, but it wasn't enough for her. She wanted to do something more, but something's missing.

With all her family gone, she decided she could not live a life like it. Then, remembering the girl with the silvery wolf months ago, she shouted at the sky blocked by the tall trees, "Artemis! I know you're there! Please, take me with you." 

Nothing happened, and she lost all hope. Just then, the girl she saw appeared, together with seven more girls in silver parkas.

The black haired girl stepped forward."I've heard you, and I can see you're a very determined mortal." She talked more until she introduced herself. That she was really a Hunter of Artemis. Zachariah couldn't tell how happy she was that they were really real and that they are talking to her and asking her if she wants to join, so she immediately believed them. She took then the pledge, finally deciding to be a Huntress. " I pledge myself to the Goddess Artemis. I turn my back on the company of men, accept eternal maidenhood, and join the Hunt."

Zachariah felt strength and courage once more to face the real situation. And one more, to see the Artemis herself sometime. Looking at the black haired girl congratulating her, Zachariah said, "I've never thought these things could actually exist. But now I'm one of you, a Hunter, in a group of warriors a lot of people think were just stories - that gave me more life to live on."

After explaining more things, including about Camp Half-Blood, the black-haired Hunter then led them all out of the camp by the Half-Blood Hill. Peeking around, she saw demigods roaming and keeping themselves busy around. The Golden Fleece glinted under the pine tree, while the dragon just snored off. After watching for a few minutes. They continued deeper in the forest. Several minutes later of walking and explaining, a hellhound suddenly appeared from nowhere, sniffing in the air. Then it lowered its head and growled like it has found its prey, its red eyes gleaming darkly.

"Watch and follow," the girl said. She nocked an arrow an released it. The arrow landed on the hide of the monster, near its neck. It howled, and Zachariah too nocked an arrow and let it flew, which was followed by another angry howl. The other Hunters rained arrows on the beast quickly before it tries to get to their hiding spot, and after several of them, it laid dead on the ground.

The girl told everything once more to Zachariah about the Hunt, what they do in it. She understands, then continues the walk with them. Day was quickly swallowed by the night, and the girls made camp. The next morning, Zachariah went back to the Camp to train still and be better, with the black-haired girl telling her they would be back soon after some business.

Hi there I'll be your claimer today and I have to say this is a good claim but personally I dont think artemis would 'come' if she is called (thats just me) as she is busy with goddess stuff (again thats just me) still thats all the problem I see in this claim hope to see you again :)

Behind those cold hard computer screens.....SuitIsASexyWhoreThere’s a human heart beating away its emotions…

Thanks. I've tried fixing it. Hope that's fine. :)

Summer June (talk) 07:11, April 13, 2015 (UTC)

Hi there I'lll be your claimer once again anyhow I think this is ok but I have to ask why is she at camp and for what reason? as even if your a huntress it doesnt necessarily means you are in camp. So please explain

Behind those cold hard computer screens.....SuitIsASexyWhoreThere’s a human heart beating away its emotions… 07:53, April 14, 2015 (UTC)

Um, she wasn't at camp actually. She doesn't even know Camp Half-Blood. The settings stated in the claim would only be in her school's garden and in her home, where she called out (I didn't put that..but it is still then). So, are there other problems, or I didn't understand your question the way you wished?... :)

Summer June (talk) 07:58, April 14, 2015 (UTC)

what I mean is from the hunt how did she get to camp?

Behind those cold hard computer screens.....SuitIsASexyWhoreThere’s a human heart beating away its emotions… 08:42, April 14, 2015 (UTC)

I'll take it. I'll add: Hunters do sometimes rest, right? So, Zachariah, after trying to see what Hunters go round in time, she tries visiting the Camp when they're rest location was near it. So there you go. (Have i got it right?)

Summer June (talk) 10:01, April 14, 2015 (UTC)

please mention it on the history on how she got from the hunt to camp please

Behind those cold hard computer screens.....SuitIsASexyWhoreThere’s a human heart beating away its emotions… 09:06, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

Fixed it :)

Summer June (talk) 09:14, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

what did you add actually?

Behind those cold hard computer screens.....SuitIsASexyWhoreThere’s a human heart beating away its emotions… 06:44, April 16, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry. What i wrote last time didn't get published. I didn't notice it, sorry. I've added it already. \\// :)

Summer June (talk) 09:52, April 16, 2015 (UTC)

ok I understand how she found the hunt but what I'm asking is how she got from the hunt to camp as those two are different things

Behind those cold hard computer screens.....SuitIsASexyWhoreThere’s a human heart beating away its emotions… 14:14, April 17, 2015 (UTC)

tried to add and fix it. Hope it's okay now.. :)

If you were to write a story with me in the lead role, it'd certainly be . . . a tragedy.Boo09:26, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

I think Mel is asking for a little more detail? Is she a lieutenant of Artemis, or just a random NPC you've created for the purposes of this claim? Please also add a little more detail on her joining the hunt, for example, do her parents know etc? I also doubt Zachariah would explicitly know the hunters of Artemis were a group and functioned like they did in the books, but it would be easy to have the black-haired girl explain.

Why is she at Camp Half-Blood? Is she there to represent Artemis, to train as a new hunter of Artemis etc? I would advise you to make the last paragraph a short description of how she ended up at CHB and why. Feel free to IM me if you have any questions or need more help.

I've fixed them (i just don't know if they're okay). And about her parents' knowledge - that's already nothing. They died before Zachariah knew about the Camp. And I've written that the black-haired girl (i just made her) explained her things (camp half-blood, hunt and all), I just didn't write all the things she explained. That's all, though.

On our wiki, there is only one lieutenant of the Hunters of Artemis and the character is owned by a user on the wiki. This is a godmodding of Hyu's character (the lieutenant Hunter of Artemis) if you do not have his permission to include his character in your history.

Okay. Got it. I've fixed it up. Sorry I didn't know and I just changed it for I have no time asking for permission. Thanks for that. Is it okay if I just made up someone?

Hey Summer, this claim is really good and is almost ready for approval. Just one quick thing left to fix: Regarding the Hyu Lt. Thing, since you aren't seeking his permission, the black haired huntress can't be referred to as the lieutenant. I think there's still one or two instances left in the claim where you refer to her as such. Just gotta get rid of them and then I can approve the claim. :)

Thanks. Done it.

  • Is this girl clearsighted? If not then hunters of artemis should appear rather normal, and instead of carrying around greek weapons they'd have more natural things
  • Normal Mortals can't just visit camp-half blood as though they were a regular demigod :/ there is a barrier to prevent such things, as well as the mist. In addition, this would make it difficult to explain why people's characters wouldn't recognize her or anything :/
  • Where is she living if all her family is gone? she couldn't just live on her own :/

Yes, she has the Sight. And I've fixed the thing about her visiting the camp, so her friend is the one now who visits her. And she lives in her home, even though her family's gone. he has a sideline job, she can live on her own. People can do that, you know.
