Keneva and Valek were deported from Lithuania during World War I. They fell in love while imprisoned in labor camps. Eventually, they were released from the labor camp and settled in America, where Keneva gave birth to the Vilkas siblings's grandparents, who later gave birth to Viktoria Vilkas. The siblings's grandfather started a successful business that manufactured weapons, so they're filthy rich.

Viktoria Vilkas was rather beautiful, as well as a talented artist. While studying at Harvard, she caught the eye of Apollo (or some other god) and they had a brief affair. When Mykolas was born, Viktoria panicked. She wasn't willing to drop out of college to raise him, but she couldn't bear to give him up for adoption. Eventually, she decided to send him to live with her sister, who raised Mykolas until he was seven. On Mykolas's seventh birthday, Viktoria sent him off to a boarding school in England. Shortly after Viktoria finished college, she met Hades and they had an affair, resulting in Auris's birth. She raised Auris until he was six, then sent him off to boarding school in France. A year later, she gave birth to yet another kid - Nathan, a son of Phobos. Viktoria sent Nathan off to a boarding school in Spain.

Viktoria started a career as a graphic designer and photographer, traveling around the world. While in Romania, she adopted Justas and gave birth to Vanessa - a daughter of Boreas - two years later. She kept Justas and Vanessa with her, as she didn't have enough money to send the two of them off to boarding school as well, and she wanted to keep some of her kids with her. A while later, she married Mark Whittings, a wealthy politician and gave birth to Jason. Mark always tolerated Justas and Vanessa, and they got along fairly well. However, the siblings detested their stepbrother, Jason, who was a spoiled brat. He constantly threw tantrums and got the demigods in trouble.

Vanessa grew up hearing about her siblings, and eventually decided to organize a family reunion. She sent letters to her brothers, asking them to come visit their family in Maine on Thanksgiving. They agreed. However, the scent of demigods attracted a manticore, which attacked the family. The mortals couldn't see through the mist, and assumed that the manticore was a large bear. Jason, being the idiot that he was, attempted to take on the manticore, which easily killed him. Nathan, who had been carrying a celestial bronze dagger with him just in case stabbed the manticore, eventually killing it after a long and bloody fight.

Viktoria and Mark were distraught about Jason's death. Viktoria, who knew that the siblings were demigods, blamed Jason's death on them, accusing them of luring the manticore to their house. Mad with grief, Viktoria and Mark kicked the siblings out of the house. The siblings then split up and went their separate ways.

Vanessa became depressed when that happened. She was lonely and missing her family terribly. She took a bus to St. John but slept through the ride ending up in Quebec. Completely lost, her father found her and brought her to his palace. There he explained to her about her siblings and herself. He said they were probably on their way to Camp, knowing it or not (he is a wind god after all). He offered her to stay with him and become one of his Boreads, but she refused, saying that if her family was meeting again in a safe place, she was going there too. He understood and gave her a blue umbrella and told her that the tips had needles that when she spun it quickly, they flew and hit her target, freezing their skin/muscles with a light frost, so they are just too cold to move fast, that lasts 20 or more minutes. She left the palace, guided by her father’s chilly winds. She got to camp after being attacked by monsters about 5 times, defending herself with the umbrella but never fighting them since she had no idea how to.

This is the umbrella Boreas gave to Vanessa. Its tips have needles that when she spins it quickly, they flow and hit her target, freezing their skin/muscles with a light frost, so they are just too cold to move fast, that lasts 20 or more minutes.

  1. Children of Boreas have the ability to create gusts of icy wind which slow the movements of all effected by them as well as carrying small, sharp blades of ice which can tear into an unarmored opponent.
  2. Children of Boreas have the ability to call upon a focused ice storm which freezes a small area into solid ice, trapping anyone in the area within it; this effect does not last long.
  3. Children of Boreas have the ability to create a dome shaped torrent of wind, roughly two or three times the size of the user, which can be used to block attacks for a very short time.
  4. Children of Boreas have the ability to create a small tornado, about the size of the user, which can be used to block projectile attacks for a short time.
  5. Children of Boreas are stronger in the cold.
  6. Children of Boreas have the ability to hover or fly, however, the longer they fly the more it drains them.
  7. Children of Boreas have the ability to turn pure water into ice at will using a cold breeze.
  8. Children of Boreas have the ability to call upon a massive snow flurry which obstructs view and lower the body temperature of all that are susceptible.
  9. Children of Boreas can create a hail storm, with up to baseball size hail, for a short time.
  10. Children of Boreas can create armor and weaponry out of pure ice which is quite sharp; however, it is also fragile and must be mended or replaced often, which uses up large amounts of energy.
  11. Children of Boreas can create an ice/snow goldem, no larger than 2 to 3 times the size of the user, to fight for them for a short time, while doing so they themselves are incapacitated and afterwards must rest between making another one
  12. Children of Boreas are able to withstand cold temperatures.
  13. Children of Boreas are often ambidextrous, a trait they share with Notus' children.

General Personality

Vanessa is a great actress. She actually faked most of her "nice" attitude just so her stepfather would shut up about how bratty she could be. She actually masks a deep hate for a lot of people, mainly her stepfather for making her mother turn against her. She used to be spoiled, being the only girl between the siblings and when her mother had another kid, she was burning with jealousy.

No one actually noticed her despising most people she acted friendly with and she hated it. She always wanted someone to notice her act, and asking her to stop and be herself. Vanessa had an eating disorder when she was 13, another fact no one found out about. She clings to her siblings as the only people in the world who could understand her, but after some weeks in camp she noticed not even they knew her.

Furious, she dropped her act. She became the cold, sarcastic and hateful girl she was inside her head all these years, not caring if people hated her anymore.

Camp Life

When Nessa got here, the first thing she went to look for were her brothers. Due to her lack of sense of direction she ended up getting lost many times before finally finding them. After spending some time in camp and with Nathan, though, something odd sparked in her. She seemed to be falling in love with him and that scared her. Acting oblivious to his feelings and her own, she acted as if nothing was happening until it was too much. She and Nathan shared a kiss but then Mykolas and her siblings caught them.

Mykolas and Nathan argued and when Nessa froze them in place, Mykolas said he disowned them both from their family and that they weren't siblings anymore. Nessa was desolated and ran away from Nathan and her brothers.

When she found out Nathan had found a girlfriend, she dropped her nice girl act and became the cold-hearted person she is. Her family was split and she didn't have anyone to rely on so she thought it was better not to trust anyone again. But that didn't last much until she finally talked to Nathan again.

Her feelings came back and he told her Viktoria had sent a letter saying that Nathan wasn't really her brother. She was happy and they got into a real relationship after that. But after some time, they started drifting apart and ended up breaking up. Vanessa now only stays in camp because of her duties as Liteunant Counselor though she wishes she wasn't here anymore having to endure her painfully sweet memories.
