Hop belongs to Matthew Payne, and was a gift to him from Ariadne. Ariande gave Matthew Hop because he had arrived at camp safely, unlike his sisters who had perished and were turned into nymphs. Hop also represents Matthew's new life at camp. She currently resides with Matthew in the Ariadne cabin. Before Matt left camp, he met with Gage, and let him take care of Hop while he was away.
