1. Name of Character: Azalea Winter

2. God Parent: Nike

3. Dream:

The following message took place during a dream:

Dear Azalea,

Not but a week ago, a rather greedy man stole something from me. He stole my golden nikes. *sniffles* Now, laugh all you want about the irony of me owning a pair of these shoes, but I've instilled upon them a great deal of power, and the user of them is granted amazing speed, agility and amplified amounts of strength. Of course, they only ever-so-slightly enhance my power, me being a goddess and all. But for any mortal wearer, the shoes become a powerful weapon, and I'm afraid the man is already using this to his advantage.

That's where you come in dear! I need you to get them back for me. They were stolen by a man whom I have presumed is a demigod, a rogue son of Deimos, in fact. He's hiding out in a sweatshop in Vietnam, where they produce nikes. *sigh* Honestly, the irony of this situation is making me cringe. I'll send you a note somehow with some contacts on it to make your journey slightly less challenging. Vietnam is a fair way after all. And when you return, darling, I'll have a gift for you! *the dream begins to fade, having gone on a while*

Oh! Azalea! I forgot to mention one thing! A daughter of mine, a half-sister of yours, is being forced to work at the factory. Free her, and the others workers if you have time, but take your sister back to your father's house, where she can be cared for.

Really, this situation: Nike's nikes being stolen and taken to a Nike sweatshop where a daughter of Nike works...

Ta-ta dear!


4. General idea:

A rogue son of Deimos stole Nike's golden Nikes and is now ruling over a Nike sweatshop in Vietnam with an iron fist. He is using the Nikes as a symbol of fear among his workers, crushing the skulls of those who do not work fast enough with a swift kick. A lone daughter of Nike works in the sweatshop and Nike wishes to have her Nikes and her daughter returned to safety at the same time, killing two birds with one stone. The demigods will have travel to Vietnam, facing off against the empowered demigod. They will first go through JFK airport, where one of Nike's contacts makes himself known on the plane ride. As they hit turbulence caused by rogue wind spirits, he shadow travels them out of the plane onto the nearest ground, which happens to be Stockholm, Sweden. There, the contact faints and the group is attacked by two cyclops. They fend off the cyclops and begin heading towards the airport where they are intercepted by another contact (Kirsi's aunt, Anna). Though at first reluctant to help, the contact leads them to a private plane and ships them off to Ha Noi, Vietnam’s capital.

Here, they meet a male demigod son of Hecate at the markets (after being attacked by Dracnae) who is concerned for his sister, also a demigod. The group realizes that this could be the demigod Nike mentioned, so the boy travels with them by motorbike to Son La, a river town in Northern Vietnam. On the way they are attacked by four hellhounds. On reaching Son La, they scout around for a while, until they find the sweatshop. The son of Hecate manipulates the Mist to make them look like inspectors and they enter the sweatshop without the workers suspecting anything. Fang, the rogue son of Deimos, invites them into his office, proudly sporting the golden Nikes. End game.

5. Monsters:

  • 1. 3 harpies at JFK Airport, disguised as tourists
  • 2. Rogue wind spirits on the plane flight (only one in the plane, the rest outside causing turbulence)
  • 3. Two Cyclops when they land in Sweden
  • 4. Two Dracnae in the Ha Noi markets
  • 5. 4 hellhounds on the road to Son La
  • 6. End game; Empowered son of Deimos

6. End game:

The group clear away the Mist surrounding them and face off against Fang (the son of Deimos). The son of Hecate that accompanied them is soon knocked out by a light kick with the Nikes. After a period of strenuous fighting, one of the group manages to pull off one of the Nikes. With Fang now only half as powerful, they defeat him after a short period. Just as they think he is beaten, Fang shows them all their worst nightmares, draining him. He tries to escape from the sweatshop, but in his weakened state he doesn’t even make it to the door. The group capture him, and remove the second shoe, leaving him near powerless. After subduing him, they free the workers in the sweatshop, until only one girl remains. After coming to, the son of Hecate recognises the girl, and introduces her to the group as his sister. They thank the boy for his help, and then the Lady Nike appears to them all (I’m using a god rp here).

She greets her daughters, and thanks the group for retrieving her Nikes and her daughter. She explains to her younger daughter how she will go home with the others to camp, where Azalea’s father will pick her up and look after her. She then promises the group they will find gifts for their hard work back at camp, and transports them there herself (not the Hecate boy, he stays in Son La). She says thank you and goodbye to the group, and vanishes. The young girl is retrieved by Azalea’s father and the group part ways. That evening they each find a pair of nikes on their bed, each with special properties. One for sure-footedness, one for light tread, one for speed, one for strength and one for agility. (Note: Obviously, the Nikes won’t be too OP, the strength and speed ones only amplify the strength and speed you currently possess etc etc.)
