About Me

Jupiter Castaneda is a daughter of Astraeus who's been at camp since 2015 and loving it. She exudes confidence and few know that's the result of never having confidence before. She relies heavily on her small circle of friends, Mercury and Cael, and doesn't like to stray too far from the familiar and what she knows.

Powers of a Child of Astraeus [ 3/6/9 Month Powers locked ]:

  1. Children of Astraeus have the ability to conjure weapons out of plasma which can be used for combat; however, only one weapon can be conjured at a time and it cannot be bigger than the one who conjured it.
  2. Children of Astraeus have the ability to focus an intense beam of plasma which will burn anything it touches.
  3. Children of Astraeus have the ability to summon a cluster of miniature stars directly in front of them which can be used to block incoming attacks; the stars, however, dissipate quickly.
  4. Children of Astraeus generate an orbit around themselves for a short time, all attacks and people near the user get caught in the orbit, causing them to fly around, unable to attack the user. The user cannot move while the orbit is active.
  5. Children of Astraeus are innately stronger during the night.
  6. Children of Astraeus have the innate ability to see in all directions at once during the night.
  7. Children of Astraeus can innately adapt to most natural planetary environments within reason, meaning they're less likely to die of heat stroke and hypothermia.
  8. Children of Astraeus have the ability to create temporary light sources, similar to concept of a flare, which will alight an area or blind an enemy for a short time.
  9. Children of Astraeus can manipulate the force of gravity of the planet and change the direction and force of it. They can cause items to float or stick to the ground for a short time or cause them to fly into a certain direction. Once the curse wears off, the item is immune to further use of it for a moderate time.
  10. Children of Astraeus have the ability to use the gravity pull of the planet to slow down enemies for a short time, giving them a high chance to avoid an opponent’s attack or prevent an opponent from avoiding one of the user’s attacks.
  11. Children of Astraeus can limit gravity’s effect on their own bodies, causing them to float up and fly. The longer they fly the more it drains them.
  12. Children of Astraeus have the ability to conjure a small supernova, which will burn at anything in its wake on a 10m radius, as well as producing a loud booming sound coming from the explosion. It cannot differ friend from foe and will affect anyone or anything nearby.
  13. Children of Astraeus have the power to cause up to three constellations to appear in their physical forms to fight alongside them. Each constellation will appear as an enlarged version of the thing it is based on except for human based constellations such as Orion which will be the size of a human. Constellations will dissipate after a short time, leaving the user moderately drained. Ex: If the user summons the Cancer constellation, it will be a giant crab that cannot be bigger than 2 or 3 times the size of the user.
  14. Children of Astraeus have the ability to change the surface and mass of their bodies to reflect the surface and mass of a planet in the solar system of their choice for a short time. For example, if the user wishes to turn their body into flames, they would adopt the surface of Mercury. No matter which planet they choose to assimilate with, they will be extremely drained after the transformation and they can only use the power once per fight. They may switch planets while in this state. Ex: The user is reflecting Earth to reach an opponent and then reflects Mercury to attack them. Once in this state, they lose access to their other powers. Excluding those that are passive.
  15. Children of Astraeus often wield innate knowledge of constellations, space and other planets in the solar system.
  16. Children of Astraeus can tell the time, date and their location simply by looking at the sky.
  17. Children of Astraeus typically dream of becoming astronauts, to explore the stars and other planets.

Jupiter Castaneda 4.png

Jupiter is an extremely self-assured individual. She knows what she likes and what she dislikes and knows her own limits, refusing to let anyone else tell her otherwise. She is an advocate of everyone being treated equal until they do something that warrants that equality being taken away from them; i.e, them bullying someone. She has a very "mother" like personality in the sense that she wishes she could protect those seemingly unable to protect themselves and shield people from the unnecessary cruelty of others. WIP


Melody Koo always seemed to be the runt of the litter, ironic considering she was the oldest of three. Whilst her sister went to Julliard and her brother Stanford, she was left to attend a local college in hopes of gaining a degree that'd enable her to get a decent job. Hardly the life any twenty two year old wanted, yet it was the one she appeared to be destined to have. This misfortune in life was the main cause in her disconnecting herself from her family, bitter that she never saw any of the infamous Koo wealth. Bitter that whilst she had to, quite literally, beg for money, her siblings were living the high lives - lives she could all but dream about.

Melody resorted to anything; prostitution, begging, anything that would give her the extra cash to support herself. Whilst it gave her no material worth, she volunteered at a community centre in hopes of more people seeing her and hoping that at least one would fall in love with her and take her away from a life of poverty. Crazy, she knew that. Or at least she thought so, until a man who looked exceedingly rich (having to be a millionaire at least) fell for her. He was older, much older, but all Melody saw was the money. They conversed and she learnt he lived in Beverly Hills. She had no second thoughts, accepting his proposal as soon as it happened a mere nine months later. A poor woman with a warm heart for everyone, Melody Koo, had gone and in her place stood a much colder, much richer Melody Castaneda.

She enjoyed her life on the west coast, a nice change to the cold east counterpart. From a small apartment to a gated community, Melody's life couldn't have changed into a more polar opposite if she tried. Whilst conversing with her husband - or interacting with him in general - didn't appeal to her, she basked in the ability to capitalise on her hobbies. It was during one of these hobbies, astronomy, that she met Astraeus. She was well versed in Greek mythology, hearing that her sister gave birth to a son of Eros, so when the god revealed his identity near immediately, there were no doubts. Maybe it was the desire to outdo her sibling, maybe the desire to have someone she could love in her life - whatever the reason, Melody left her usual spot on the top of a hill near the community impregnated.

Nine months had passed and she never hid from her husband that the child wasn't his. In fact, he sometimes commended her for it knowing that she wanted a child. That gave Melody hope that her child would be safe from derogatory terms and being pushed away. A beautiful baby girl, Autumn, was born on 29 August 1997 and became the light in her mother's life. Sadly, that wasn't the case for her step-father.

She had a good relationship with him for a couple of years, two to be exact, before he began to isolate her from activities involving his side of the family until Autumn relied solely on her mother. She was taught about astronomy from an early age and took a liking to the pet name her mother gave her - Jupiter. The name was in lieu of Jupiter's birth name that her step-father called her sickeningly so often. The poor girl learnt to hate her name with a passion, learnt that she'd never be able to call herself that. She was powerless in her home, absolutely powerless. That's the reason as to why she was labelled as bossy at pre-school as she capitalised the opportunity of being able to do so. At first she had decided she didn't want any friends, claiming she didn't need them and being forced by the staff to interact with other children. But when she saw a small boy with a large teddy bear she couldn't help but be intrigued by him. She promptly sat in front of him one day, without him knowing, and smiled brightly as she introduced herself. She quickly made it clear to him that she disliked the name and that Jupiter would suit her just fine. He introduced himself as Myles but she was on a space high that day and claimed he was a Mercury and therefore the name would stick. They became inseparable just like that.

She always hated lunchtimes - people thought with their stomachs and left no room for anyone else to try and get their lunch boxes. She'd told Mercury to go on ahead and find them a small table where they could converse and become the best of friends (although she had already claimed him that within the first ten minutes of meeting him but you had to be sure, obviously). She figured he'd put his teddy bear down as a sign of someone being sat with him, so it was a shock to her to find a crying Mercury instead of one with a bright smile. She spotted another child, a renowned bully in the group, with his teddy bear and promptly stormed over and demanded that he give the bear back. When he refused and stuck out his tongue, she simply hit him over the head with her lunch box, picked up the bear and returned it to Mercury, grinning whilst doing so because damn it felt good to bring some justice as a five year old.

That incident accurately described the relationship Jupiter and Mercury would have; Jupiter would protect Mercury and stand up for him and the two would stay attached to each other's hip.

When Jupiter was thirteen, she was walking through the gated community when she heard a growling. Stalking her was a hellhound and it threatened the tough-acting Jupiter to scream for help. She saw her step-father and was happy to see him, calling for him to help her. But when he just looked at her and then at the hellhound, which he saw as a harmless dog, he rolled his eyes and shouted for her to grow up. That distraction enabled the hellhound to pounce on her, giving her a nasty gash in her midsection. She screamed again and her screams were answered by a satyr who fended the monster off until she was able to get into her house. She told her mother about the incident and when she heard about it, her mother promptly got into a divorce case whereby she'd keep most of the money, citing neglection and abuse of Jupiter as grounds for divorce. And they won. Her mother hired that satyr to help train Jupiter promptly after, not wanting her daughter to be harmed again. It had seem as if the old Melody had been brought back out through her bouncing daughter.

At Jupiter's request, she was sent to a private high school where she and Mercury could be by each other all the time. They were a duo, quite iconic if you asked her. She was the one who influenced him to dye his hair and she was the one who protected him whenever someone started to create trouble. A bodyguard wasn't quite how Jupiter described herself, but it was always a badass title and she wore it with pride. She was also the only one who was able to push Mercury around when he got more buff, not that she liked doing that.

The attack on her 18th birthday was unlike the ones she had in the years prior. They had been harpies, hellhounds, those sorts of monsters. Her attack on her birthday was a pack of fire breathing horses. She was intimidated when she ran into them unknowingly, as anyone would be, but she was more prepared than she had been compared to her very first monster attack. Her charm bracelet, given to her by the satyr who said he had been told by Astraeus to give it to her, was the mist form of her various knives and daggers and she was, remarkably, able to kill one or two of the horses. When the others surrounded her, that's when the same satyr came to her aid once more. He told her to tell her mother to send her to Long Island immediately. Scared, she obliged and was shocked to see her mother saddened and knowing about the steps she had to take.

That's messed her up a little bit, the last image of her mother crying happily. It's broken the tough facade of Jupiter Castaneda.
