Jasper is a mostly introverted person, preferring to spend his time alone rather than surrounded by people. This is because he grew up in solitude and even when it came to school he was homeschooled rather than going to normal school. With the death of his legal guardian, who he was very close to, Jasper finds himself having trouble getting close to anyone. Apart from his shyness, Jasper is also known to be a lazy person, just another reason why he hardly goes out.
September 15 1997:
Dark blue ocean water slammed against a rocky cliff, the sun was no longer visible in the sky. Alexandra silva, a young brazilian girl was standing atop the cliff looking down to the water and the rocks that sat at the bottom.
“I can’t take this anymore…” Alexandra said aloud to herself.
With one step the young girl fell off the cliff and descended down towards the sharp rocks below.
2 months Earlier:
“Faster!!” an older man yelled to a girl swimming in the indoor pools. “You think your gonna stand a chance if you swim that slow.” He scolded her.
Alexandra had just reached the end of the pool when she heard her father and frowned. “Im sorry Pai…..” The young girl apologized as she pushed herself out of the pool and grabbed the towel on a bench near by. “I’m trying my best but, i’m exhausted….” She added as she looked up to her father. Since the time she was 7 years old and could swim, Alexandra’s father, Oscar has forced her to take swimming lesson and practice everyday so she could be the best she could be. Alexandra couldn’t really complain since she loved to swim she just hated it when her father would push her to much and stress her out.
“I’m trying my best…” Oscar mimicked his daughter voice. “You think that was good! if you swim like that at the meet you will never win! NOW DO IT AGAIN!” He commanded and his daughter did as she was told.
Back to September 15, 1997
“I can’t take this anymore….” Alexandra said aloud to herself
With one step the young girl fell off the cliff and descended down towards the sharp rocks below. Two months ago when Alexandra was to compete in a meet, she lost and when she did her father turned. He became abusive, cruel, and constantly told his daughter she was worthless and would never compare to her mother, who had died years before. Oscar would constantly beat his 17 year old daughter and with her older brother Milo out the house, there was no one to help her. Alexandra became distant and slowly lost her love of swimming but of course still did it to please her father.
One day after months of enduring her father’s beatings she decided to run away and found herself at the cliff she was now falling from. With her eyes shut, Alexandra waited for the pain that never came. Huh? She thought to herself as she opened her eyes and noticed she was now underwater and close to shore. What happened? She asked herself as she swam to shore. Once walking out the water she noticed a man standing there on the beach .
“Who are you?” She asked as she came closer and noticed how good looking the man was. she was at a loss for word but shook her head to bring herself back to reality
“I was just hanging out on the beach looking out into the ocean….” The man lied. In reality he was really poseidon, god of the sea, and was the one who had saved Alexandra from her death.
“Oh ok ill just go then…” she replied not wanted to bother the man anymore then she probably already did. As she began to walk away the man stopped her and invited her to stay with him to watch the ocean. Alexandra having nowhere else to go accepted and the two sat there for hours talking. The young girl sat there telling this complete stranger her whole life story, Maybe it was because he was a stranger and she would never see him again or maybe it was because he gave of a sort of safe feeling. Poseidon who had introduced himself as daniel, a boy from the united states, listened to every word she said but, everything she said he already new. For months the sea god had been watching Alexandra, fascinated by her love of swimming. When he saw her coming to the cliff and jumped off he decided to save her because he had fallen madly in love with the girl.
After that night the two got closer and closer. Daniel provided Alexandra with her own little house next to the ocean where she could stay away from her abusive father. Alexandra had many boyfriends over the years but, none of them were like Daniel. The spent every minute of every day with each other for about 3 weeks. Then one night the two finally made love. Alexandra was as happy as she could be until the next morning when she woke up only to find Daniel was gone. She searched for a few weeks hoping to find the boy she had fallen in love with but no luck. After a while she just gave up, guessing he probably moved back to the united states.
Weeks after Daniel’s leaving Alexandra began showing signs of pregnancy. After taking a few pregnancy test, just to be sure, she found out she was with child. Instead of aborting the child she decided to keep it and went through the 9 months of pregnancy.
June 19 1998
June 19, 1998 a baby boy was brought into the world but, sadly his mother was taken out of it. During labor something went wrong and Alexandra told the doctors to save the baby if they couldn't save both. Sadly the doctor couldn’t save the two and only saved the child who was later put into the adoption system do to Alexandra lying about her name so the Doctors couldn't find any relatives of the baby boy.
A Broken Sea God
The water of the ocean crashed violently as devastation filled the King of the sea’s heart. Poseidon, who kept a close eye on Alexandra, had just gotten news of her death. Yes he had a wife already but, Alexandra was something different. She was mortal, caring and innocent and had a beauty that could compete with the goddess Aphrodite herself, which is why he fell for her. Pushing his devastation aside, Poseidon turned his attention to his now orphaned boy. He felt sad for the child and decided to send a nymphs to take him in and care for him. Amanda was her name and she was a storm nymph, originally created by Zeus but, she to was saved by poseidon and decided to do him this favor.
After Amanda took in the son of Poseidon, she thought it best to move to the US and to an area close to New York so when the time came camp would be near. With the help of a close friend Amanda settle down in a medium sized house right next to a river, where no people at all lived. The son of Poseidon, who Amanda decided to name Jasper, grew up in the house. He lived a fairly normal life, if you count solitude as normal. Amanda being the cautious person she was decided she would homeschool Jasper, that way she would be able to keep an eye on him all the time.
First Monster Attack:
On the day of his 11th birthday Jasper was at home, like most days, and was watching T.V. Suddenly the sound of the front door opening caught his attention and caused him to look back and spot amanda. “Hey Amanda!” Since a young age, Jasper knew Amanda wasn’t his real mother and that his real mother died giving birth to him. “Hey Jasper” she replied as she walked over to him and handed him a necklace. Jasper grasped the jewelry in his hand and examined it. “Looks cool… Is it for me?” He asked as he look to the trident shaped pendant that hung of the silver chain. Amanda simple nodded “Yea now come on, we're going out for your birthday.”
Later that day the two got ready and headed out of the house to spend Jasper’s birthday at a nearby cafe. Suddenly while walking Amanda stopped and began to look around. “What's wrong?” Jasper asked but was quickly shushed by Amanda. “There’s something out there…” Amanda answered in a whispered tone and as if on cue, a large hellhound bursted out of the forest that surrounded most of the house. “What the hell!?!?!?” Jasper shout as he backed up, tripping over his own feet and landing on his butt. “Stay back!” Amanda shouted as she pulled a bracelet from her wrist off and transformed it into a celestial bronze sword. Jasper was taken back by this but stayed on the floor as he watch the lightning nymph kill the hellhound and turn it into golden dust.
After the event Amanda decided to stay home and explain everything to Jasper. He was shocked at what he was hearing but he also had to admit most of it made some sense. Like the times he saw blue women at the bottom of the lake when he was 10, or the time he jump into the shower and couldn’t seem to get wet. Of course Amanda also mention Camp and told Jasper if he wanted to go he could. With much thought, Jasper decided he would stay with his guardian for as long as he could.
A Secret Family Member Arrives:
A few years passed after his first encounter with the hellhound. Over those years other monster came to attack but with some training he got from amanda and amanda herself, Jasper was able to get by without dying. By now he was 17 and again at home but this time he was outside training with the sword he had gotten on his 11th birthday, Amanda on the side watching him. “Good!” Amanda praised the young demigod. After one last swipe jasper had managed to cut the head of the dummy off. “I've been training for 2 hours can i go inside and relax now” he whined as he fell to the ground and sat down. Amanda let out a soft chuckle and nodded her head. Jasper jumped up and smiled before walking toward the house.
Suddenly Jasper and amand stopped as they heard noises coming from the forest. The two turned around, both their weapons ready. After a few moments a young man came out and collapsed on the floor. Jasper and Amanda look to each other and then ran towards the boy, helping him inside.
“Who is he?” Jasper asked as he brought in warm towels and handed them over to Amanda.
“I'm not sure, but he has the scent of a demigod….” Amanda answered as she placed one of the towels on the boy's forehead.
3 weeks later
A few week passed since the mysterious boy showed up at their house and he was still unconscious. jasper couldn’t help but feel uneasy with another demigod at his house and it seemed amanda was feeling the same way. “Maybe we should send him to camp when he wakes up?” Jasper suggested as they sat on a couch across from the one the boy was laying on. “maybe….” Amanda said, her gaze going from the floor to the boy.
suddenly the boy spoke. “Jasper?” Was all he said before drifting off once more. The two looked a bit confused but, were glad to know that he at least was still alive. After that they went on with their normal day, waiting for him to wake up.
The next day Jasper was now standing next to the boy, who was still uncouncious. “Come on wake up already!” Jasper shouted and was surprised when the boy's eye’s actually fluttered open. a sigh a relief surged through his body as the boy was finally awake. after some talking jasper listened to the boy's, whose name was Maickol, story and was surprised to discover they were actually related. “Your my cousin?” Jasper asked as he took in all the information. It was all a bit much to take in, form is grandfather wanting him dead to his dad sending Maickol here to find him but after a bit Jasper was able to accept it.
Going to Camp:
The next day after Jasper and Maickol were both ready to head to camp, along with Amanda. However things took a turn for the worst when a cyclopes attacked the trio. because camp was very close by the trio took the chance to run through the wood but, sadly the plan didn't work for the whole group. Amanda, Jasper’s closest friend was hit by the cyclopes and immediately died from the blow. Jasper was struck with devastating but was forced to keep running since their was still a cyclopes after them. Finally both Jasper and his cousin Maickol bursted out of the wood and into camp where the Cyclopes was stopped from following them.
After that jasper and Maickol were both welcomed into camp and taken to the infirmary to heal any wounds they may have gotten. After a few days of residing at camp jasper was claimed by his father Poseidon.
