The name's Omega. Her parents, well. Thesis, the goddess of shapeshifting and water. She's also a hunter of Artemis. A pretty old one at that. She joined at age 16, and she's been in the hunters for about ninety years. <br> Her hair is black and silver, while her eye is a lime green while the other, where is gone, replaced with a robotic eye that has a swampier green. Normally cheerful, she is also agile, and she has quick thinking. Many often mistake her as a child of Athena, becase she rarely uses her powers. She has only been in the Demigod camp for basically until Percy Jackson joined, before she moved away and went to the Hunters of Artemis. <br> Omega normally wears armor underneath a hoodie and jeans. The armor is light weight, so she can run and stuff in it. <br> Along with a silver bow with a lot of designs she carved in, the bow. Her melee weapons are a pair of katanas and two twin ebony daggers. <br> She nrmally speaks with Thalia Grace, before she started under going a lot of hard times in her life.

So if you want a character to be in my story leave their name, age, godly parent, powers, weapon of choice, personality, and appearance. The maximum chatacters you are allowed to enter is 3. I will take Roman demi-gods, Greek demi-gods, and hunters of Artemis. PLEASE do not only give me children of Athena and Poseiden, I need some variety! Not all characters may be used. I may add some of my own characters if I need to. If you leave any information out, I can fill it in with anything I want. Thanks for leaving a character! If you have any questions, go to res 2, I will answer them there. The series is going to be called: The Curse of Artemis. See you soon!- Remi
