Percy Jackson is a demigod, the son of the mortal Sally Jackson and the Greek god

Poseidon. He has ADHD and dyslexia, allegedly because he is hardwired to read Ancient
Greek and has inborn "battlefield reflexes". He has been expelled from almost every
school he has ever attended. Percy's birthday is August 18.[1] In the first novel of the
series, The Lightning Thief, he is twelve years old. Like other demigods, he is expected
to act as the Olympian gods' agent in the mortal world, taking action when ancient laws
forbid direct godly intervention, usually in the form of quests. His personality is
described as "changeable like the sea" (a quality he shares with his father) and hard to
predictwith the important exception that he is dangerously loyal to his friends and
family. He also displays deep regret when he sees others around him being hurt, often
even monsters and strangers. His "powers", which start small and develop as the books
proceed, include controlling water, making hurricanes, breathing underwater, and talking
to horse-like animals and fish. He also becomes an accomplished sword-fighter and
leader, as well as being the head counselor of the Poseidon cabin at his demigod summer
Percy Jackson's fatal flaw is loyalty, which he at first does not see as a weakness.
Throughout Percy Jackson & The Olympians, Percy grows more confident and
courageous.[2] After The Last Olympian, the next time Percy is seen is in The Son of
Neptune, the second book in the sequel series The Heroes of Olympus. He is suffering
from amnesia and slowly struggles to regain his memory over the course of the novel.He
arrives at aRoman Camp called Camp Jupiter and stays there for 1 month. During the
remaining three books in the series, previously unseen or nonexistent facets of his
character are revealeddue in part to the series being told inthe third person rather than
the first. Some of these include a new fear of drowning; the humbling realization that he
has become lax and almost cocky in his training; and a tendency to take things too far in
defense of his friends and family. One of the darkest moments in the novels comes in The
House of Hades when Percy discovers that he can control the water in a person's
(specifically the misery goddess Akhlys's) body.[3] Luckily for him, his girlfriend
Annabeth Chase is present and brings him to his sensesshowing yet again his loyalty,
but also how his moral character remains mostly intact despite all the difficult situations
he has been forced to deal with.
At the end of the last book in the series, Percy and Annabeth Chase (his girlfriend) plan to
finish their senior year of high school together in New York, and then attend college in
New Rome
