Apollo met Cynthia in a music competition one day, though Cynthia was part of the crowd they got into a conversation and soon Apollo invited her on a date and they began dating and soon Cynthia found out she was pregnant with Connor and soon after she found out, Apollo had left them leaving no note, just like her previous lover, who was Ares in disguise and had a son with him too, who she named Harry.
Connor always got the top marks in school whilst Harry was always at the bottom. Like Connor had always planned, he knew Harry was smart but Connor didn't want him as a rival so when it was time to hand in assignments, Connor switched harry's assignments with ones Connor had purposely failed so Harry never got good marks, Harry never knew Connor was doing this as he never looked over the homework and when he did, he always just shrugged it off.
The two children were both diagnosed as ADHD but only Harry was diagnosed with being dyslexic, when Connor was five, Cynthia married a man named Sammy who was a lawyer and they moved into a mansion and Connor and Harry got everything they wanted, but each night, Sammy snuck into Connor's room and watched him sleep until one night he came out as a paedophile and had only married Cynthia to get to Connor.
This continued to happen until he was ten and when burglars broke into the house for the valuables and when Connor had gotten in their way they tried to kill him but Sammy, who always kept a gun with them if this event happened or something similar, shot the burglars without hesitation.
After the event Cynthia loved Sammy more and began to see him as the real father of the children and soon went on business trips for her work leaving Sammy with the two children, but Harry always went to sleepovers at someone else's house leaving Connor alone with Sammy. In this time Sammy's paedophilia nature multiplied and became more often until Cynthia or Harry returned home and Sammy went back to the usual time. After the burglary Connor knew telling Cynthia about Sammy was no option as she would never believe him.
When he was twelve Connor was in the park with Harry when a hellhound jumped out from the bushes, tackling Harry to the ground, though Connor would easily let Harry die he decided it would be best to keep him alive, and so he grabbed a rock from the pond and smashed it down onto the helhounds head due to the hellhounds complete attention to Harry. When the hellhound fell off Harry he brought out an army knife, which was celestial bronze, he had stolen the knife from his mother as Ares had left it in the house accidentally and Cynthia kept it as a keepsake of Ares, which later on he told Connor he always kept as he was always being beaten up by the year twelves, but as soon as the hellhound crashed to the ground Harry stabbed the hound multiple times but when he stepped back the hellhound just burst into dust and Connor dragged Harry home, annoyed by the way Harry was acting so violent.
When Connor was fourteen, Harry disappeared, the police thought about a kidnapping but some of Harry's clothes were missing so they suspected running away, Connor never found out which one it was, but he didn't care either way. They began to investigate Cynthia, Sammy and Connor and eventually found out about Sammy being a pedophile, as one night they had left but one had forgotten his keys at the house so he came back and found Sammy and Connor together. When Cynthia heard about this, she was heartbroken and a couple of nights later she hung herself as she had blamed herself for Connor's ordeals.
Sammy was taken to jail and Connor was taken to foster care, this was at the age of fifteen, he made a few friends there and among the friends was a boxer who began to teach Connor how to fight. After a couple of months there a satyr arrived and befriended Derek and after a week or so the satyr told Connor about the Gods, he took this in silence and soon they were in a cab to camp but Connor began to think about the gods, and after a while he began to hate them. If one of them was his real father then why did he not save him from Sammy? From what he got from the satyr, a lot of demigods were killed by monsters yet their parent did nothing to save them. Why were the Gods ruling the world when the world was obviously corrupted in filth.
When they were getting to camp their car ran over some spikes and the car capsized knocking Derek out. When he woke up he was in the middle of a forest about to be killed by BC members but he used the boxing skills he learnt from the foster home he managed to dodge the bc members sword and punch him in the jaw knocking him out as he was taken by surprise. The other member grew angry at this and went fullout on Connor and nearly killed him if another member didn't arrive. Seeing the scenario he asked Connor who he was and Connor grudgingly explained and the new member, obviously the leader of the trio asked him his views on the Gods and Connor answered the question and the two remaining members looked at each other before the leader asked if Connor wished to join the Broken Covenant, and seeing no other option, he said yes.
