Lysander Faragher had always been a sick child. When he got older, the sickness didn't go away, and at the tender age of 30, he was diagnosed with a cancer that had no cure. To keep him at somewhat ease, the doctors didn't disclose what type of cancer it was, but told him he had a year to live. Whenever he felt lonely or sad, Lysander would buy some flowers which'd strongly remind him of his grandmother. It soon got to the point where Lysander would buy flowers over paying bills and such, which attracted the attention of Persephone.
Honestly, she was more honoured than confused and engaged in conversation. Over the next few months the goddess had learnt to the extent of Lysander's disease and his only wish to father a child. In exchange for all the help Lysander did for flowers, Persephone engaged in intercourse with him and in a month, a child was born and given to the man (23rd January 1996). Naming him Lyle.
Despite the odds, Lysander lived for another year, and a year after that until Lyle was 5 and attending primary school. In between the Christmas of 2001 and his son's sixth birthday, Lysander was admitted into hospital again and shortly afterwards, passed away. Lyle promptly was moved to the most established foster home in Douglas where, due to his cute appeal and age, he was fostered quickly and eventually adopted by a woman, Rochelle Kissack who raised him from there.
In a new life, Lyle excelled - it was good, carefree and loving. That was, until he turned 13 and monster attacks began to occur. The first was easy - a hellhound. As a result of the island's size, it was inevitable that there would be larger demigod communities than in other places. It happened when he was walking home from school. He was minding his own business and walked at a casual pace until snarling was heard. From that noise, everything was a blur. All Lyle could remember was a sharp pain in his back and then waking up in a hospital bed. That's when the problems at home began.
From that day, Lyle always had arguments with Rochelle and every time there was a monster attack, something would always save him. That something being an fellow demigod or a satyr. Of course, after all the attacks the demigods and satyrs wouldn't escort him to Camp, due to the fact that Rochelle wouldn't allow it, and that every single attack, Lyle'd run from them as they tried to approach him. As soon as Lyle was 16 and out of secondary school, he moved in with his current boyfriend, Matthew. To Lyle, Matthew'd been an escape from Rochelle's controlling hands, whereas Rochelle saw Matthew for what he was. Countless times had the aforementioned mentally, physically and verbally abused Lyle but to the latter, he didn't want to let go because to him, Matthew's love was worth more than the injuries.
For three years Lyle handled the abuse until one day, he cracked and ran. To where? He didn't know. All he knew that he needed to leave the Isle and go to the mainland. From there, the demigod that'd saved him the first monster attack escorted him to Camp.
