Olive was 30 years old when she first met Apollo. She was an entertainer at a tavern in LA. She would sing and play her guitar everyday at the same times. This caught Apollo's attention. One day he approached her and flirted with her. She flirted with him back, not able to resist his charming good looks. They had a few drinks from the bar as the day continued. After awhile they ended up kissing and getting more into it. Olive ended up getting drunk after having too much rum. She and Apollo ended up back at her place. Being drunk, they ended up going all the way. When she woke up, she found herself alone and nude with a huge hangover.
Nine months later, Olive gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. She ended up naming her Eden after her grandmother.
Originally, Eden was taught at a public school, but at age 7, her larynx was damaged, and she could no longer speak. She tried for a few months to start in her school, but it was getting hard for her because the teachers thought she wasn't participating enough and couldn't understand her gestures and sign language. She would also sometimes get bullied by the other schoolmates for not being able to talk or defend herself.
Finally, after a month of this going on, she transferred to a private school for dumb(dumb is another word for peopl who can't speak) people.
She also grew inspired by Beethoven who was a deaf musician, and she decided to learn how to play the piano and guitar. She wanted to use music as her voice, similar to what Beethoven did.
She took private lessons and developed her skills as a musician. She also learned how to play other instruments like the violin and harp. She tried to play wind instruments like the trumpet and oboe, but she couldn't play them as well due to her damaged vocal chords.
When she turned 13, her mom was killed in an armed robbery at a bank she was at. Since she was not able to take care of herself, she was forced to go into Foster Care, but she ran away and ended up on the run for awhile with two people she met on the way. They all helped each other get food and cared for each other.
At age 14, they were all attacked by a hellhound, but a satyr saved them by stabbing it with a bronze(Celestial Bronze) sword. He gave the sword to Eden and told her to use it the next time a monster attacked. He then explained that his name was Betan(Bay-ten). He also explained that he was a satyr from a camp made for demigods. They all agreed to go.
They made their way to Long Island, and at age 16, they finally reached the hill. On their way, the did end up running into a few monsters here and there like harpies, hellhounds, and once they ran into a Cyclopes, but they were able to escape when they teamed up where two went from behind and two went the direct way. They were able to throw it off enough to escape.
About two days later, they were attacked again, this time it was by three hellhounds. They each took them down, but one of Eden's friends got injured, and they had to go to the hospital. When they asked what caused the injury, they told them it was a dog scratch, which wasn't entirely false.
When they finally reached the hill, about two weeks later, they were attacked by a couple of harpies.
They fought them, but the two other demigods she was with both died before Betan was able to kill them. Eden then crossed the border and was claimed a day later by Apollo.
