Demigod[edit]

Demigods, sometimes called Halfbloods, are the children of the mortal and immortal. When a god either falls in love with a mortal, answers a call from a mortal that they deem worthy, or sometimes just grants them a child without ever speaking to them. The child then grows up with their mortal parent until they figure out their own power, at that point the god parent may return to speak to their child about their origins.

Physical Description[edit]

The physical description of a Demigod is mainly based on their mortal parent, however the nature of their god parent will affect their body, like an child of Ares being stronger than average.

History[edit]

Demigods have been around since the beginning of mortals being in contact with their deities, always presenting themselves with a sense of pride because they are gifted thanks to their god heritage.
