Perseus “Percy” Jackson is a seventeen-year-old Greek demigod, the son of Poseidon and Sally Jackson. He is the head counselor of Poseidon’s Cabin and a former Praetor of the Twelfth Legion at Camp Jupiter. He is in a relationship with Annabeth Chase, and currently resides at his house in Manhattan.   He plans on going to college with Annabeth in New Rome.

  • ADHD: Percy’s supernatural alertness and keen senses that keep him ready for, and alive, in battle. It also lets him analyze his opponents fighting style as well as pick up minor details about an opponent, such as where their muscles tense so he can tell which direction they’ll attack from. This is one general trait of demigods.
  • Dyslexia: Percy’s brain is “hard-wired” for reading divine Ancient Greek instead of mortal languages. During his time at Camp Jupiter he learned to understand, and possibly speak, Latin to an unknown degree. This, along with ADHD, is a trait common to most demigods.
  • Enhanced Physical Condition: As a demigod Percy is faster, stronger than a normal mortal, as well as being more agile and durable. These physical attributes have allowed him to perform feats normal human can’t, as well as survive situations mortals cannot.
    • Enhanced Strength: Being a demigod, Percy is shown to be quite stronger than a regular mortal, able to knock out demigods with one hit, rip out the Minotaur’s horn, able to deflect giants attacks, strangle a snake when he was a toddler, and many other feats
    • Enhanced Durability: Being a demigod, Percy is shown to be more durable than regular humans as he was thrown to solid rock by a giant and only managed a nosebleed, shook off a hard kick in the chest from the god, Ares, and shook off a whack in the chest by a giant, and many other feats.
    • Enhanced Agility: Being a demigod, Percy is shown to be more agile than a regular mortal as he was able to leap on the huge Minotaur neck, climb up to Anteaus head in a matter of seconds, and able to keep his footing on a huge slippery, shaking crocodile, all with impossible agility. His greatest feat of agility had to be in the Hidden Oracle, when he leaped from a giant statue head to it’s shoulder and slip down the ship’s rudder like a fire pole with impossible agility. Even the god, Apollo had to admit he was moderately impressive.
    • Enhanced Reflexes : Being a demigod, Percy reflexes are faster than a regular human. Percy was able to react to a bullet that can travel 1,700 miles per hour in the Titans Curse.
  • Leadership: Percy is a natural leader as he led Camp Half-Blood to victory numerous times
  • Will Power: Percy is shown to have great willpower as he held up the weight of the sky for a long period time and endured the sufferings of Tarturus.
  • Fighting Skills: Percy is a naturally talented and expert swordsman, capable of holding his own against and even defeating larger, more experienced, and more powerful opponents, including gods and Titans as well as monsters. In The Son of Neptune, even after losing the Curse of Achilles, he is still shown to be able to fend off an entire army of continually resurrecting ghosts by himself while still protecting Frank. His Greek training and unpredictable, solo fighting style make him particularly dangerous to the demigods of Camp Jupiter, who are used to fighting as a group, allowing him to easily defeat multiple opponents at once. According to Frank, Percy “fought like a demon.” When possessed by eidolons, Percy fought Jason Grace on even footing (Piper couldn’t believe the speed of their sword fighting) and injured him to a point that he was knocked unconscious. However, it should be noted that Jason was distracted by Piper’s charmspeak at that particular moment, which allowed the possessed Percy to exploit the opening in Jason’s defense.
  • Curse of Achilles (formerly): After bathing in the River Styx, Percy was given supernaturally superior speed and strength as well as invulnerability except for his vital spot opposite of the navel. With the Curse of Achilles, Percy’s own combat skills are enhanced to the point where he can single-handedly defeat entire armies as well as gods like Hades and Titans like Hyperion (albeit he had some help in defeating Hyperion). He later loses it by touching the Tiber river as it was a Greek blessing and he could not enter Roman territory with the curse.[2][3]
  • Empathy Link: Percy has a psychic connection with Grover called an empathy link. In The Son of Neptune, Don the faun said that Percy had an empathy link with another faun who is Grover.
  • Eye of Horus Symbol: Percy has an image of the Eye of Horus drawn on his palm, which can allow him to summon Carter Kane wherever he is just by speaking his name, though Percy can use it only once. Percy used this to get Carter and Sadie to Governors Island to help him and Annabeth face off against Setne.
