Camper: Jung Jiyeon
Overview: A child of Melinoe, known as Agnes Malone, had been offered immortality by her mother decades ago. She stayed in New Orleans, keeping the supposed ghosts under the control. Eventually, she got sick of doing the same old thing, and decided to rebel against the gods. So while Thanatos' butterfly was making it's rounds around New Orleans, she captured it and kept it in a bronze, enchanted cage. Ghosts are immediately drawn to the butterfly, and she controls the ghosts and wreaks havoc on the town, scaring the innocent mortals. Jiyeon is sent to defeat Agnes and retrieve the key, and set the butterfly free.
Locations and Monsters:
- Camp entrance
- Come across an old Civil War battlefield in Virginia and encoutner some lingering Keres
- Cherokee Lake in Tennessee-come across a rogue sea serpent living in the waters
- Birmingham Zoo in Alabama-manticore disguised as a lion
- New Orleans, Louisiana-"Haunted" house, where Agnes keeps the butterfly
End of Quest: Agnes takes on the demigods, and calls her ghosts to help. However, Jiyeon and the combined efforts of (hopefully) another Melinoe child keep the ghosts neutral. Although Agnes is immortal, they manage to injure her a lot. While Agnes is distracted fighting the demigods, Jiyeon sneaks behind and looks for the key. Agnes tries going after Jiyeon, but the other demigods keep her well distracted. Jiyeon finds the key in a locked chest, but before she can free the butterfly, Agnes stabs her with a poisoned knife and it seems to be fatal. Jiyeon feigns death and Agnes celebrates victory. While the enemy is distracted, Jiyeon finally unlocks the cage and frees the butterfly. Agnes disappears in fear, and the ghosts are finally taken guided by the butterfly. The team tries to heal Jiyeon, (and if there's an Apollo kid, it should work), and Thanatos himself appears. He congratulates the demigods, destroys the house, and transports them back to Camp.
Questors: Jiyeon, preferabbly children of Apollo and Melinoe, and one spot open. So four questors in all.
Out of all of the possible guardians, why a butterfly? Why didn't Thanatos pick a symbol or something more attributed to himself?
I was told that the butterfly was Thanatos' patron animal, since it says he is depicted with a wreath of butterflies, plus, butterflies are often associated with death.
Oops, sorry >.<" I check the animal nymph's section and saw Psyche. Anyways: you're right
