Gem burned

"Love is the anterior to life, posterior to death, initial of creation, and the exponent of breath."
Gemma has arrived at camp, after being dropped off by her adopted mom and dad. She is 15 and she is straight and single.
Personality
Gemma is an helpless romantic. She has read all romantic classics and novels and has watched the best romantic dramas and comedies about a billion times. She loves the idea of love, and is a big matchmaker. Being a lover, not a fighter, she is reluctant going into battle, but she still goes for the sake of her friends. She can be a bit silly sometimes, fantasising about everything, but is very friendly, with her upbeat, and sometimes offbeat personality. Gemma has an ear for gossip and will carry on rumors she has heard from others, but she wouldn't carry on one that would hurt someone's reputation. Just the ones that are not that mean. On bad days, she can be cranky and will cut herself off from others. Her advice may be lacking, but you can't criticize someone who tries their best.
History

Gina Hanson, nationally famous for her best selling romantic novels, was one to say she had no romance in her life. She created stories of pleasure and happiness in another's company, yet didn't have any company of her own. She had tried multiple times finding the man of her dreams, but they either hooked up with her best friend or dumped her when they found a hot model from Europe. Yes, she didn't have any love and she was putting her bets on dying alone. Well, before she did that she would have to, of course, buy a cat.

Upon deciding what kind of cat she wanted, she made her way towards the small pet shop located in the small community on the east side of Pennsylvania. When she entered the store, her eyes caught on to a Shorthair near the back and she hurriedly went to go check the animal out. As fate would have it, a squeaky toy had fallen and Gina happened to slip on it and almost fall to the ground. A man had caught her before she had hit the floor. She spun around about to thank the man when she gaped. The hero was a tall man with green, no blue, eyes, neatly cut brown hair, and muscles peekin out from under his white shirt. Gina didn't know how long she had been standing there, mouth wide open, staring straight at this angel-on-Earth kind of guy, but she knew it was long enough. She quickly apologised, and the man introduced himself as Eric. He started telling her that he was a huge fan of her books and how he was romance fan. That led them to a conversation on great literature.

Gina was skeptical when he asked to take her out for coffee sometime, because of her recent experiences, but that smile plastered on his handsome face just seemed to melt her. She agreed and they met the following morning for coffee, and after a few dates, the both of them decided to become an actual couple. A month later, after many dates and interviews, Gina and Eric did it. Gina began to feel sick and immediately knew why. She picked up a pregnancy test from the local drugstore, and tried it; positive. Gina told Eric and he rejoiced, but Gina wasn't surprised when he left her the next day. She was annoyed and hurt, but mostly annoyed. She didn't bother reading the note he left on her nightstand and threw it away. All her life she was just thrown around, men used her for urges and then just left, and now she was pregnant, and she didn't want the baby.

Because of her beliefs, she decided not to get an abortion but to put the baby up for adoption. She told a worker and after month she recieved a call from the social worker that they have found a couple in New Jersey whom have good backgrounds and are liscensed. After meeting them herself, Gina agreed to letting her baby grow up with these people. She had learned their names as Dylan and Tamara Bridges. Dylan was an attorney and Tamara was an architect who spends most of her time at home.

In March, the baby, Gemma, was born. Gina gave Gemma to Dylan and Tamara and moved on with life, focused more on work and moved to Italy where she was given many job offers. Dylan and Tamara introduced themselves to the baby and took her home.

Gemma was a jewel to her elders and her peers. When she was a toddler, she would delight her elders with her sweet smile and laugh, and how she hardly cries. She was a main visitor to the homes when she was a bit older;she was always asking her mother to take her there after school. She loved hearing the stories of the old folks and their significant others.

Gemma was a pretty popular girl in her late elementary school years, but was held back because of her inability to read "properly". Aside from that, she was popular among the students for being the social and constantly talking young lady she is.

Gemma had an average school life. She followed the rules, though occasionally she would give the teacher sass. She had been diagnosed with dyslexia from birth and even though it was hard for her, mostly in her school life, she pulled through it and ignored it, but her parents hired a private tutor for her. The tutor had the name of Agave and, for some odd reason, smelled like aloe. He was her satyr though she didn't suspect a thing, of course. But Tamara did.

Tamara, herself, was the daughter of the goddess, Aphrodite. Having never liked satyrs, because of their untidy hygeine and their big appetite to eat almost everthing at the table, she had a private conversation with Agave and told him she would take the matter into her own hands. She dismissed the satyr and told him to go back to camp with her charmspeak and decided to tutor Gemma herself. She took on to banning anything that would attract monsters from the house. Tamara also started to homeschool Gemma.

All efforts to stop monsters from coming didn't really work. In the summer of sixth grade, when Gemma was 11, a harpy crashed through her window, interrupting her while she was in the middle of painting her toenails. She screamed and Tamara immediately came in. Tamara had wielded a sword which she had always carried in the form of glasses and fought the harpy till it's ashes were on the bedroom floor. Gemma had been in her closet the whole time.

Tamara explained everything to Gemma, who took it in rather well. Tamara, though, still had no clue that it was Gemma attracting the creatures, not herself.

A few years later, and after many various encounters with different monsters, Tamara grew tired of always having to always protect her daughter.

She had fought off a fire breathing horse a week after Gemma was attacked by the harpy, a chimera at the grocery store when Gemma was 12, a giant scorpion at the bakery a month later. She had fought another harpy when Gemma was 13 outside of the mall, a hellhound at Christmas time. She had also fought a telekhine on Independence day at the beach when Gemma was 14, a Stymphalian Bird later that year, a Scythian Dracnae on Gemma's fifteenth birthday, and finally, an Orthrus at Easter.

Tamara realized that Gemma was also a demigod when another satyr came, this time named River. River told Tamara that Gemma needed to go to camp, and it hit her. Tamara knew she had to tell Gemma.

Tamara sat down on day with Gemma and her husband. She told them that Gemma was someone like her and that there was a camp Gemma could go to to train herself and learn more than she knew about her ancestors. They decided on going to it, and the next morning they set off. Tamara gave Gemma one of her celestial bronze swords. The three soon reached Half Blood hill. Dylan and Tamara hugged their daughter and they left, and Gemma entered the camp.

Character's Powers

 Powers of a Child of Eros (NO 6/9 POWERS):

  1. Children of Eros can manipulate the thoughts of a person for a short period of time in order to make them able to only think about the person or thing they love or favor most. Once used on a person it becomes ineffective on that person for a moderate amount of time.
  2. Children of Eros have the ability to focus an emotional energy beam out of their love, which will burn anything it touches.
  3. Children of Eros can cause people of the gender they are attracted to, to lose all desire to attack them for a short time (in the case being that they are bisexual or pansexual etc it would be only people with the same gender of their current or most recent partner). Once the child is attracting someone, they cannot attack. So the power is purely defensive.
  4. Children of Eros can generate a veil of the emotional energy from the feeling of love, the veil will protect them from damage for a short time, but cannot be used if the child does not have the love to fuel it.
  5. Children of Eros cause anyone of the opposite gender to be, at least slightly, attracted to them, they also attract people of the same gender that consider themselves gay or lesbian.
  6. Children of Eros are innately proficient archers.
  7. Children of Eros have a partial resistance to charmspeak, charm-touch etc.
  8. Children of Eros can detect emotional ties between different people, if they’re lovers, friends etc. and can find out about someone’s previous partners, including: if they had sex, and how long the relationship lasted. They can also easily tell their sexuality and ideal partner, it works better the more emotionally concerned the child of Eros is for the target.
  9. Children of Eros can manipulate the feeling of love of people by either removing it or increasing it towards themselves or other people. This is temporary and requires a lot of energy, although using it towards oneself requires less than if it were towards other people. Ex: They can make someone love and admire them, or hate them, or make best friends hate each other, or two enemies feel love for eachother.
  10. Children of Eros can infuse emotional love magic into their arrows or any other weapon in their possession, if the weapons hits the intended target, the target will temporarily fall in love with the first object or person they see for a moderate time. After which, the target is immune to further use of it for the rest of the fight. (Note:The Love magic works better when used with arrows though.)
  11. Children of Eros can decrease or increase someone’s lust, such as increasing a desire for sexual intercourse or simply wiping it out. An increase in sexual desire can be resisted by sheer willpower and will only last for a short time, this depends on the magnitude of the target’s sexual desire before it was attempted to be altered.
  12. Since their father was depicted as a winged god, children of Eros can sprout wings for a short time, this enables them to fly; the longer they maintain this state, the more energy it drains. They must rest between flights and cannot make long distance traveling without resting often. However the wings are vulnerable to injuries and magic; they can also be customized to the user’s preference.
  13. Children of Eros can infuse magic into their grasp, and ‘charm-touch’ another person into doing their will or revealing a secret to them. The person will remain under the control of the charm-touch for a few minutes or until control is relinquished, and the child of Eros must touch the skin of the person they want to affect. ‘Charm-touch’ is considered more powerful and can override charmspeak due to the fact the user must make physical contact with the target.
  14. Children of Eros are now able to channel their loving emotional energies to construct combative and non-combative objects, formed one at a time and no more than 2 to 3 times the size of the user, which takes on beautiful, magnificent and seemingly harmless appearances depending on the user's preferences. They can also create semi-living constructs under the user’s complete control. However, their ability to use the power, and control the construct, is hindered before or during use when they experience emotions that are like hate or malice. As these emotions are felt, the strength of the object begins to fade, becoming dull and brittle.
  15. Children of Eros can feed off the love they’ve given or received in their lives and become an embodiment of love. This would make them more powerful, immune to all attacks, enhancing their physical prowess and power over emotional energy they previously possessed. This only lasts for a short time, after which the user will be so exhausted they would lack the ability to even move for some time.
  16. In some cases Children of Eros tend to be fiercely loyal and compassionate to their loved ones, friends, and family. In other cases, they love creating romantic strife. Cheating on partners, seducing others already in relationships etc.
  17. Children of Eros tend to be very flirty and attractive, causing them to retain a youthful skin/hair/facial appearance than others after completing puberty.
  18. Children of Eros tend to be very mischievous and cunning, often seen making plans to prank or matchmake other campers.
  19. Children of Eros typically get along with children of Aphrodite.
