Loner, gloomy, creative, a bit sarcastic, not easily scared. Quiet, but opens up more if she knows a person well. She would never say it, but she would like to have more friends.
Connor McRae met Melinoe just performing his job- he was an undertaker. While he was burying a murdered young man, a beautiful woman approached him. They started to talk, became friends, and a couple days later fell in love. They lived together for about a week, but one day the goddess left without a word. Connor's heart was broken. The only family he now had was their daughter, Delilah. He found her on his doorstep half a year after Melinoe left.
Delilah grew up in Connor's family house in Idaho not knowing the truth about her mother. She was always quite lonely and only spent time with her father, whose job made other children afraid of her. Despite wishing to have friends, she pretended to not care as she knew they wouldn't accept her. Instead she liked to paint in her free time, although her paintings were always dark and grim.
She didn't get very bad marks at school and especially enjoyed creative writing and art. She didn't have dyslexia or ADHD. Her only school problem was that she didn't have friends or even anyone to talk to.
Delilah secretly believed in ghosts as she could somehow feel they're all around her. She always had a good instinct, and it told her not to be afraid of them. They weren't dangerous to her.
One day, when she was thirteen, a giant scorpion attacked her on her way home from school. She survived by becoming intangible. Delilah couldn't explain how she did it, but it helped her escape. A few weeks later a satyr contacted her. As Delilah was very curious about what's really happening to her, he revealed the truth about her mother being a goddess. It didn't shock her as much as it propably should, but after this acccidential use of her powers and all the ghosts she sensed since early childhood she knew she wasn't "normal". Along with the satyr she took the plane and cab to Camp Half-blood.
