Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson & the Olympians, simply, Percy Jackson or PJO – a pentalogy of fantasy adventure fictions written by American author Rick Riordan, and the first book set in the Camp Half-Blood Chronicles.

Perseus “Percy” Jackson was born on the 18th of August 1993, to Poseidon, the Greek god of the seas. Sally Jackson, a mortal who could see within the Mist. He was titled after the famous Greek hero Perseus by his mum for good luck because his name was one of the few heroes who had a happy ending and died a tranquil death.

Percy’s History

When Jackson was a baby, his dad left, as it was usual for the gods, and to protect him and his mum from Zeus, who gets angry if he finds that his sib broke the oath. When he was a baby, Jackson was attacked by a snake but somehow managed to choke it to death, similar to the famous demigod Hercules. Nevertheless, Poseidon seldom visited Jackson when he was in his cradle, which Jackson defined as a “golden glow”, his father’s tender smile and a hand on his head. As Jackson grew older, his mum would tell him that his dad had been lost at sea. Jackson was raised by his single mother.

How did she meet Gabe?

When he was a toddler, Sally united Gabe Ugliano, hoping his horrid smell masks her son from the monsters that would drive him, as monsters are drawn by the scent of demigods. Jackson disliked Gabe, as he would frequently bully Jackson and his mum. Jackson used to call him – Smelly Gabe since he smelt like rotten garlic pizza covered in gym shorts.

Early Expulsion

Quite an unfamiliar things frequently happened around Jackson, including an aquarium being flooded, and a school bus exploding which often ended in his getting into trouble: he was hit out of more than 6+ schools over six long years. This made a lot of people bully him, while his stepfather speculated something was wrong with Jackson.

When he was in class 3, a tall man followed Jackson around when he was at school, but by bullying to call the police, the teachers finally got the man to leave. Nonetheless, no one believed Jackson when he said that the man had just one big eye.

It is said in The Blood of Olympus that Jackson has been kicked out of a military academy where they assumed that paddling is good for the soul.
