It started before André's birth, Hades was searching the world for a new mate. One that would fill the void that Phespherone's often trips out of the underwood left in Hades. Kinda hard to fill a being who lives in a void for the souls of the dead.... Hades came to a city in North Eastern Washington State Where he met Peggy. It was almost like a planned date, except it was at, well, a singles meeting group. Hades and Peggy talked and swapped email addresses.... Bummer right? Well, after a lot of cyber mailing, Peggy and Hades hooked up... Hades got into his black cadilac and drove to Peggy's house. Peggy Had struck it well of with some stocks and bonds, giving her the ability to live how she wanted.
Hades drove up Peggy's country drive, and did a meet and greet. So the meet and greet went great. 9 Months later little André was born. André's father was nowhere to be seen at the birth, but Peggy knew why Hades wasn't there and quite a bit more... Peggy loved and cared for André, spending every waking moment with him. When André grew to be five years and became a busy body, he often caused his mother to be glad she was youthful. André was homeschooled because his ADHD often got him into trouble at the Preschool his mother sent him to when he was younger. André reached the age of eight, was in third grade, and was reading a book with fresh water fish in it. André begged his mother, who only set yes after making André promise to take care of the fish.
So a week later from that day, André had a 100 gallon fish tank in the living room, They filled the tank with water and put gravel at the bottom of it. A week after that,t he son and mother went to the fish store. André was drawn to a dimly lit tank, hanging from the top of it was a small card catalog showing all the loaches in the tank. André picked out 10 Doja loach, 4 Clown loaches and a myriad of other loaches. In total André had picked out 60 loaches, the only type of fish he had picked out. For André it was important to finish school early and stare into the fish tank.
André grew to be 12, Pegyy knew that it would be any day when a monster would attack. The grounds keeper, Mr. Scotts, knocked on the door to the front of the house. It was really a subtle knock, it was more of an alarmed let me in and hurry knock. Peggy Opened the door to her home and in ran Mr. Scotts, who quickly shut the door behind himself. Scotts told Peggy that she had to take André to camp, as there was a Giant Scorpion outside, something that came for demigods like André and himself. Then the cleaning house guy came down from the stairs with no pants on or shoes, furry goat legs, and goat feet to complete the looks. IT was really a surprise to Peggy, She had figured that the cleaning guy was a satyr. Mr Scotts and the satyr ran out the front door, with weapons drawn, and slew the giant scorpion. It was an easy kill for the two, as they took care of it in 15 or so minutes. After that Mr Scotts and John, the satyr, became like extended family, going everywhere that Peggy and André went.
Soon André was 16 and his mom bought him a Ferrari FF. André was now almost padlocked to Mr. Scotts as Mr. Scotts went everywhere that André went. Mr. Scotts was always in the passenger seat, ready to kill any monsters at a moments notice. Thus was André's life until he was 20, constantly being trained by John and Scotts. On André's 21's birthday Mr. Scotts presented him with two scimitars and a cloak. From John he received two boots, torso armor and the gift of an extremely skilled transforming automaton, named Esolces. André took Esolces for a ride in the Ferrari and it became a hobby or habit of theirs to take a evening drive.
A month from André's 22nd birthday, he and Esloces had taken a detour that led them on a month long journey all the way to camp. On their journey to camp, they stopped at quite a few gas stations, and out ran many of the monsters that attacked them at gas stations. They had easy traveling from North Easter Washington State, to Camp Half Blood in New York.
