Children of Zeus can call down a lightning strike from the heavens, directly onto themselves, and absorb its full power into their bodies for a short time. In this state, the user is much stronger and faster, static electricity emanates from their skin, and all of their powers over lightning are substantially increased. Once the energy subsides, the user is left heavily weakened from the strain on their muscles, and they may be unable to move for a long time.
Children of Zeus generally make strong leaders.
Children of Zeus are generally good at predicting the weather, as Zeus was also the god of weather.
Children of Zeus are rarely afraid of heights.

Haze: "One way to find out!" She beamed in replying to Emilio. The two half-sibling travelled to New Athens as planned. Right now, they were steps away from the Themis test, where they were to be scanned and deemed qualified for entry. "It's a good thing that only Themis kids are here. I heard the Psyche ones can get into our minds and read them."
Emilio: Emilio was happy as he walked with his sister to New Athens. He wondered how the Themis test would turn out, but he was confident that they would be allowed in. “He who fears is only because they hide something”, he repeated someone’s motto he didn’t remember. “I can’t fear mind reading if I don’t have anything to hide”, he smiled. In reality, he had a LOT to hide.
Haze: "Pft." The daughter of Zeus laughed. "Let's be honest. Everyone has a loooott of things to hide." She nudged him playfully. "Especially teenage boys." She suggested, remembering how her cousin was once protective of his browser history. Eventually, it was their turn. Haze easily stepped in and out of the scanner. "Hmmm... guess it might just be the loyalty to the gods."
Emilio: Emilio didn’t look happy. He didn’t know if she knew what he was hiding, but it was better to not try and find out. He smiled when she nudged him, to dissimulate the fact that she might or might not know everything. “What do you mean especially teenage boys?”, he asked. He knew what she meant. Soon enough it was his turn. “Finally”, he thought. He stepped in and out of the scanner as easily as his sister.
OOC: I'll be half-away these 3 days. Going to be busy.
Haze: Luckily for her half-brother, Haze wasn't able to notice his quick change in expression. "I don't have to remind you to clear your browser history." She laughed. After Emilio passed the scanner, she added in friendly jest. "Guess that browser history wasn't that bad." The daughter of Zeus then stared in front of a big map of the Golden City. "Hmm... so many places. Ice cream parlor, a nightclub, an LGBT nightclub." She mentioned the last in amusement. Made sense. "Library... wait, we even have a marriage temple? Wow."
Emilio: He knew exactly what she was talking about, and strategically obfuscated stupidity. “What are you talking about? What browser history?”, he looked at her. “Something That doesn’t exist can’t be bad”, he responded as he walked towards the map. “Even a marriage temple?”, he asked. “These people are seriously prepared.” He then thought of something. “What could there be to eat?”
Haze: The daughter of Zeus rolled her eyes. "I don't have to explain porn to you, brother." She laughed at him deleting all his history. "Hmmm... there's a burger joint. A fancy restaurant. A Korean BBQ place. Your choice, although I don't think we're dressed fancy enough for that French one." She chuckled, remembering fond memories of her back in Taiwan. "My friend was once kicked out of a 5 star hotel bar for wearing pajamas, even if he was a billionaire."
Emilio: He chuckled as she rolled her eyes. “No, you don’t have to explain it”, he said. “However, I do not know why you think I would watch that.” “Wow”, he said. “There’s a lot of food options. You’re right. I think we deserve that French fancy one”, he grinned. He didn’t have such funny memories, but he laughed a bit at hers. “Are you serious?” To be honest, he thought it was to be expected. Money can’t buy some kinds of things, and that was one of them.
Haze: Her eyes widened at Emilio's statement. Haze was unable to believe it. "That's impossible, unless you're extremely religious. In that case, you'd kill yourself at the revelation that you're dad's kid." According to the map, the French one required a proper dress code. Upon seeing this, Haze sighed. " "We do, but I think we should choose between the burger joint or the korean bbq place. The French one might kick us out." She then continued her friend's story. "Yeah. It was so funny when he got all mad at all his friends for being random and drove home to change."
Emilio: He smiled. He knew the statement would surprise her. He wasn’t extremely religious, which is why he didn’t have an existential crisis at the revelation that he was a son of Zeus. He was just a decent actor. Decent enough to convince his sister that he was quite innocent, which was a HUGE LIE. “Not really that religious”, he admitted. When he heard about the dress code, he looked down in disappointment. “You’re right. That dress code is quite too much”, he admitted. He agreed on the decision of going to either the burger joint of the Korean place. He knew that Asian people get EXTREMELY MAD when one confuses Korea with either Japan or China, and that his sister was from China (not the other two), so he decided not to comment anything about going to the Korean place for Haze’s Asian heritage. “He got mad at THEM instead of the other way around?”
Haze: "Impossible, everyone has needs!" While the daughter of Zeus was a good bullshit detector, her brother's sex life was not something she'd like to even debunk. Haze cringed. "To be honest, I'm not sure if you're lying or not, but I don't wanna know. I don't feel like I should know." She laughed. Luckily for her, Emilio knew how Asian people would be ticked at confusing the different cultures. However, she still did not get her answer. Thus, she asked. "So, which is it?" Maybe they could come back for French another day. "Yeah, 'cause it's a random invite. You know, those times when you can't sleep at night, so you phone up your friends."
Emilio: “Look, yiu’re the person I trust most at Camp. That should give you an idea of wether or not to believe in my word”, he said. He didn’t know how to respond to his sister’s comment about his sex life, so he changed the topic. “I’m not sure”, he said. “I want to try out this Korean one, but I didn’t want you to misinterpret it and think it’s because you’re Asian”, he explained. “Then, we can come back to the French one another time.” He also answered her comment about phoning up their friends at night. “Yeah. It happens.” He doesn’t do it often, but he has texted some friends in the middle of the night.
Haze: "Awwwwwww. How sweet of you." Haze found his words adorable, so she interlocked their arms together like pre-school siblings. Of course, she didn't want to create awkward air in describing his private life in public. Eventually, she laughed. "You think too much, dear brother. Ask any Asian. When they go to a foreigner's land, all they want to do is go back home and eat their own cuisine. Korean, it is!" Since her adoptive father was Korean, Haze did share a liking towards the food she grew up with. "Have you ever tried Korean cuisine before?"
Emilio: ”What can I say?”, he said. “I’m cute. That’s who I am.” He found it even cuter that they interlocked their arms like he used to do it with his friend in preschool. They weren’t creating any awkward air at all. “Yeah, I do think too much, what can I say?” He knew all Asians would want to taste cuisine from home when they are in other places. Actually, it applied to anyone from anywhere in the world. “Korean it is!” He didn’t know she had at least a bit of Korean in her heritage. “No, I actually haven’t ever tried Korean cuisine”, he admitted shyly.
Haze: Haze chuckled at Emilio's self-complimenting. "Well, that's true. Confidence is key." With their arms interlocked, Haze tugged Emilio gleefully towards the direction of the restaurant. "Yeah, but it's not always a bad thing. Thinking too much, I mean. I can't wait for you to try it! What's your favorite cuisine so far?" She wondered. The daughter of Zeus half-wanted to convert him like a priest, given that she grew up with Asian cuisine.
Emilio: Emilio smiled at her, posing. He chuckled. “Ok, I’m looking a bit... self-absorbed.” Still with their arms interlocked, he walked with her towards the restaurant with her. “Yeah, you’re right. Overthinking can be either your weakness or your biggest strength. I don’t know”, he smiled. “Yeah, and I can’t wait yo you it! My favorite cuisine so far... I don’t know”, he explained. “I love everything!” He didn’t know her intentions, but would she be Evelin to convert him?
Haze: Haze laughed and rolled her eyes. She found Emilio's antics quite adorable. "True. You don't know whether you're outsmarting the enemy or pausing yourself." She referred to his short sentence of wisdom. "You're making me hungry just thinking of everything. This is bad for my fake diet, you know." The duo could see other buildings as they pass. "You know, this place is nicer to take a walk in. Less muddy grounds, cobbled roads. No littering. Why can't camp be this classy?"
Emilio: Emilio chuckled slightly as he noticed Haze thinking he’s cute or something. He didn’t consider his thought about Overthinking wise. He considered Haze was wise, not him. “You’re poetic”, he said, referring to her follow up to his thought about overthinking. “No, sister”, he said. “You are the one making me hungry. Also, ‘fake diet’?” He didn’t understand the concept. “Yeah, you’re right. This place is nice. Do you know why? Because camp is full of teenagers. Energetic, filthy teenagers.” He was overlooking the fact that he was a teenager himself.
Haze: "And so are you," she complimented back. "Yeah, you know, when girls say they're on a diet but keep drinking boba after the gym." She laughed, guilty as she pleaded. The daughter of Zeus nodded at Emilio's description. "Teenagers who never got through the angsty stage. I suggest you stay away from certain death cabins and especially the Hermes cabin. Though, I heard the new Hermes counsellor's reforming that." By Emilio's post, they should have arrived at the barbecue place.
Emilio: ”Poetic?”, he asked. “Me? You’re kidding!”, he chuckled. “Wait a second”, he said in response to the comment about the fake diet. “That’s possible?!” He assumed Haze and himself were the kind of teenagers that did get through the angsts stage. He didn’t know what kind of connection Hermes had with the likes of Hades or Thanatos, but he agreed. “I’m glad they are”, he said referring to the new Hermes counselor.
OOC (Emi): By the way, do you know the new Hermes Counselor?
OOC: Yeah, it's Yorkie's character. HAHAHAHA
Haze: The daughter of Zeus nodded to affirm her compliment. "Yeah, I do that." She laughed at his question on the possibility. Haze mentioned the Hermes cabin, due to their notorious pranks. " Years ago, Hermes kids would have egged campers coming out of their cabins, but I'm glad they've matured. Well, I can't really blame them. Even I had a bad angst phase with my mortal parents." She laughed.
