He is a satyr, half boy, and half goat, disguised as a 12-year-old boy. Grover cares deeply about others and will always choose what is best for them, sometimes at his own expense. Though cautious by nature, he’ll always throw himself into a fight to protect his friends, especially his best friend, Percy Jackson.

Annabeth is a brilliant strategist with an active and curious mind as a true daughter of the Greek goddess Athena. After spending the last five years at Camp Half-Blood, she longs to test her mettle in the human world, which she barely remembers. She trains Percy to survive the mythological world, and in turn, he helps her connect with her humanity.
