Look, none of us asked to be demi-gods, but we have to deal with the hand we're dealt. When you are young they create “camps” and “schools” for people like us. But what about when we are all grown up? Where do we go when monsters won’t stop attacking our gardens? Or when father keeps trying to send you on quests? What do you do when mother is too busy being a god? And is your neighbor Jörmungandr?

Greek, Norse, Chinese, who-ever your godly parent is we are here to help!
Stop by the Sunspot cafe for a warm cup of tea or coffee and tell us how we can help.
Gorgons are welcome too!
We meet every day at 5 pm, as needed.

Hello! So, you are interested in this RP. Here is what you should know:
This is a mythology based RP for adult characters.
Yes, this is loosely based on the Rick Riordan universe.

[h3 Character Creation:]

Character creation:
Please be creative! Use any mythology: Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Norse, Japanese, Celtic, etc. Don’t be afraid to branch out.
I just ask that you please do not use Hindu, Christianity, Judaism or Islam. This is out of respect to those religions.
Do your research! There will be no gods or goddesses who have taken a chastity vow that would suddenly have a kid. Also, some of the gods in their mythos are VERY faithful to their significant others and would not cheat on them. Hades for example only has one child outside of his marriage to Persephone. Loki, on the other hand, has many kids, not from his wife.
Yes, you can be the child of famous humanoid monsters, such as Medusa.
If you have any questions or concerns about which mythological figures I will accept, don’t hesitate to ask.

[b Gender:] female
[b Sexuality:] Bisexual
[b Mythical Parent:] Apollo-Greek god of the sun, healing, music, archery, poetry, and prophecy
[b Abilities inherited from Parent:] Healing, music magic, archery
[b Occupation:] Manager of the Sunspot, a Karaoke Cafe where you can get coffee, tea, baked goods, sing karaoke, hear live music or poetry readings. Home of the weekly meetings of the Demi-god support group. Works on the side as a healer, emergencies only.

[b Personality:] +Loyal, Outgoing, Generous
-Indecisive, Gossipy, Forgetful

[b History:] Alice grew up in a loving household. Her mother always cheered her on and praised her. For as long as she could remember, she remembered knowing who her father was. It was simple, he kept visiting. While Apollo was not allowed to stay all the time, nor was he allowed to have direct intervention in how she grew up, he did visit all the time. Alice can remember him singing her softly to sleep when he gifted her a guitar, and a huge grand piano . When Alice graduated high school she knew she wanted to help other Demi-gods that did not have the great life she had. Many gods don’t visit their kids or having a loving mortal parent. So, she started to work at her mother’s cafe where she started the Demi-god Support group. With this club, she hopes to foster relationships and help where needed.

[b Extra:] -She has a black and white cat that hangs out in the cafe. He just showed up one day and has not left since. So, she feeds him and lets him live in the cafe when he so chooses. She named him, Purrcy. Purrcy is a Hemmingway cat, which means he has two extra toes on each paw. He used those toes as a thumb.

-Her favorite sweets are lemon flavored.

-Every Wednesday night she performs at the cafe and most nights you can catch a blonde gentleman listening in the back.

-She is left-handed

-One of her best friends growing up was a child of Aonghus who had abandoned him and his mother. His mother blamed him for Aonghus leaving her and threw him out of the house. Alice lost track of her best friend and was inspired to help Demi-gods.

[b Name:] Nim Airedalle
[b Nickname:] Grey Eyes
[b Age:] 24
[b Gender:] Female
[b Sexuality:] Bisexual
[b Mythical Parent:] Anubis, god of embalming and the dead - Egyptian Mythology
[b Abilities inherited from Parent:]
Shapeshifting - the ability to change shape from jackal to human and any other form
Duat Portals - create portals in-and-out of the Duat
Death Magic - reduce things to a pile of dust by touching them
Occupation: Self-contracted lighting technician, volunteers at the Sunspot from time to time
[b Likes:]
* Seafood
* Spending time with Anubis despite the rarity of his visits
* Cats
[b Dislikes:]
* Prophecies
* People telling her how to do her job
[b Fears:]
* Set, Egyptian god of war, chaos and storms
* Light fixtures falling on people
* Lightning not working as intended
* Ragnarok
* Accidentally turning someone or something into dust
[b Personality:]
- Humourless - The inability to find humour in things, and most certainly in themselves
- Stubborn – Unreasonably, often unyielding; bull-headed: Determined; resolute
- Apologetic - Apologizes all the time, even when not at fault

+ Blunt – Characterized by directness in manner or speech; without subtlety or evasion
+ Fortitudinous - the courage to stand up for what is right, even in the face of pressure
+ Patient - remaining calm and not becoming annoyed when dealing with problems or difficult people

[b History:] What it was with any god or goddess involved in death and them being outcasts amongst the gods and goddesses was a completely unexplainable trend. Anubis was no exception, keeping to himself and deathly duties deep within the Duat. But on rare occasions, once every so hundreds of years Anubis would manage to find a romance with a mortal. This is basically how Nim came to be. Anubis popped into the real world, met a woman, went on a few dates, and after a year Nim was born.
Nim grew up without her father. Her mom had to have known who the father had been, otherwise, no woman would be able to put up with a child who occasionally spontaneously teleported around the house, turned into a dog and then back into a human, or inexplicably made objects turn to dust by a mere touch.
Until Anubis first visited seven years after she was born, these powers made her feel powerless because they were unexplainable. Until Anubis explained everything, Nim never felt confident in herself.
Anubis popped in every five or six years to check up on her, seeing his daughter grow older and more talented. And because of Nim’s interests, he learned quite a lot of information concerning lighting.
And this is where Nim is now. Running her self-contracted lighting tech business, doing the lighting for all sorts of performances.

[b Extra:]
* Font Colour - [#003366 #003366]
* Even though her eyes are green, most people see grey

[b Name:] Margaret Alexis Winters
[b Nickname:] Molly
[b Age:] 23

[b Occupation:] CEO of an Investment Company
[b Likes:] Music, Reading, Sweets, Trivia Contests, Video Games
[b Dislikes:] Boredom, Discrimination, Hard Drugs, Manual Labor
[b Fears:] Thunder
[b Personality:] +Curious + Diligent + Polite
-Hedonistic - Secretive - Vengeful

[b History:] Molly is the daughter of Veles and an accomplished young witch. While her father was rarely around her mother stepped up and pushed her from a young age in both her practice and her schooling. This effort paid off though as Molly became an accomplished witch herself. She even managed to graduate at the tender age of fourteen.
Despite only seeing her father a handful of times in her life; he gave her a considerable fortune as a graduation gift. One that allowed her to start her own investment firm. A firm that she has since grown to a ten-digit valuation, however, she has kept it a private company for the time being.
She joined the Demigod Support Group mostly for the connection more than anything else. While a private person there was more she could share with them than she could most. They would also be the most understanding of having an absentee parent by virtue of the parents' divinity.

-Has a mandated work culture of no more than 40 hour work weeks that she enforces on her acquired companies as well

-Her mother is believed to be a distant descendant of Trivia

-One of her properties is a record label with such famous acts as Breaking Days Grace

-Rarely sleeps alone

[b Name:] Argeos
[b Nickname:] N/A
[b Age:] 24
[b Gender:] Male
[b Sexuality:] Straight
[b Mythical Parent:] Mushussu - Giant, guardian draconic beast - ancient Mesopotamian mythology.
[b Abilities inherited from Parent:] Has a human form, Heightened senses and strength, can harden his skin into scales, can only breath a scalding smoke instead of full-on flames
[b Occupation:] Owner of a Library
[b Likes:] reptiles, goat meat, reading a good book, the small 'hoard' he owns
[b Dislikes:] Very loud disruptive noises, when the books are disorganized, when the supplier of his goat meat is unable to provide it
[b Fears:] Severally injuring or even killing someone by complete accident due to his immense strength, changing to his true form in front of humans, the loss of his library and all of the books
[b Personality:]
+Gentle and caring
+Wise, having learned many things from the books he reads
+A calm individual
-Can become very aggressive/overprotective of his 'hoard'
-Is hesitant when helping someone, especially if it involves using his strength
-There are times he may seem aloof, the draconic nature taking over and seeing itself above the rest

[b History:] It is unclear how Argeos came about. His father, the dragon beast that guarded the great gates of Babylon so long ago, and killed by poison, somehow managed to pass on his power to a youth, a child who was none other than Argeos.
His mother is even at a loss. However, she raised him just as any mother would their child. Argeos grew up, living a relatively normal life, other than the fact he was often outcasted when he went to school. Most were due to other children and students being fearful of getting hurt by him. Even at such a young age, little Argeos showed incredible strength.
It was out on a camping trip when he took to his true form for the first time. He had been very frightened, but who could blame him? Suddenly transforming into a giant, draconic beast. It took quite a while for him to calm down, with the help of his mother who didn't run when she saw his new form, only shook her head and sat holding his head as he cried.
Though the years passed, and he learned to control his abilities, to some extent. There were still times when strong emotions would trigger his abilities, such as fear or anger. Argeos now owns his own library, happy with the books that make up his 'hoard', as well as a few other things, but those only he knows about and keep well hidden.

[b Extra:] Can willingly make his horns and tail appear
Argeos has a pair of glasses he occasionally wears, though he doesn't need them

Roleplay Responses

As soon as she heard her phone ringing, she knew what it meant. Time to get up and meet her social quota for the week. Not that she didn't love her friend Rogue. She'd been best friends with her since they were 12. What she didn't love was the general public.

She hesitantly grabbed her phone and answered. She wasn't listening to Rogue because she knew exactly what she was saying before she said it. Ten minutes. She never needed more than that to get ready. She always gave Rogue the same [#97040A "I don't want to go," "I don't have any clean clothes," "I'm too tired"] spiel, but it was only to postpone getting out of bed.

Ash mulled out of bed and looked through her clothes. She wasn't sure if she [i did] have any clean clothes. Shit. Her eyes finally fell on something that she'd just washed. Now, to slip on her Converse and go outside to wait on Rogue.

Ashlyn knew it wouldn't even take 10 minutes for Rogue to arrive with as erratic as she drove. She heard honking from outside but took her time walking out. Rogue probably would've actually left Ash, but Ash would have threatened to set her on fire too.

She caught the muffin she was tossed and ate it. She was starving, but she wasn't going to waste time eating at home. [#97040A "Heppy hasn't shown up since I was 19, and I don't think he'll be coming around any time soon,"] Ashlyn stated, chuckling at the nickname her best friend had deemed her father with.

When they arrived, the girls got out of the car and walked in together. Rogue whispered in her ear that this was a support group meeting for demigods, and the end's of Ash's hair lit up. [#97040A "Bitch,"] she muttered. This wasn't the first time Rogue had tricked her into something she didn't want to do, and it probably wouldn't be the last. [#97040A "Fine,"] she grumbled, [#97040A "but if there are any cute guys, I call first dibs."]
Light burst through the windows of the small one bedroom apartment. A soft groan slipped through the woman's lips as she pushed herself up to where she was sitting. Her hair was a mess. Black locks fell all around her face and past her shoulders. [#9932CC “Too bright...far too bright...”] She whined out softly. Her phone was blaring on the bed beside her. Her alarm was ringing loudly. It had been for about thirty minutes now. [#9932CC “Shit! I'm late!”] She yelped and pushed herself out of the bed. She quickly went around picking up random clothes off of the floor. Nope, dirty. She went over to the corner of the room and picked up a pair of jeans and a black top. Good enough. She grabbed her under clothes, the only clothes that were actually in the drawers, and rushed to the bathroom to shower.

Once out of the shower, Rogue brushed through her hair and threw her clothes on. She threw her hair up in a bun and slipped into her shoes. Toothbrush in her mouth, she picked up her phone and dialed Ash's number. [#9932CC “Good morning sunshine, this is your daily wake up call. Get your lazy ass out of bed and get dressed. If I have to, I will show up and pull you out by your toe!”] She listened to the grumbles of her best friend. But I don't want to get up! It's too early! I'll kill you for this! I don't have any clean clothes! I don't want to go. She had heard it all before. She was going to make her go with her to this damned meeting.

[#9932CC “You have ten minutes before I show up at your door. Get dressed!”] She ordered before ending the call. She quickly gripped two muffins out of the cabinet and headed to her car. [#9932CC “Shit! Keys!”] She said and ran back into the house to hunt for the keys. They were on the bathroom counter next to small half full plastic baggie. She picked up the keys and the baggie, shoving the baggie into her pocket, and headed out the door to the car.

Rogue drove, although far to fast, to Ashlyn's house. She honked the horn three times and waited. It didn't take long for her to come out of the house. [#9932CC “Get in loser, we're going to Sunspot!”] She said as she revved the engine. Once the girl was in the car, she threw her the extra muffin. Then she was off. [#9932CC “How's ol' Heppy doing? He visit you yet?”] Of course not; fucking jerk. She rolled her eyes and drove to Sunspot. She hadn't exactly told Ash what was going on there today. She had told her that they were going to lunch. Oh well, she wouldn't be able to run off if she had driven her there!

When they pulled up to the Sunspot and parked the car. She got out and locked the door, pushing her shades up to hold her hair back. She adjusted her gloves and headed inside with Ash. Once in the door, she leaned over and whispered to her best friend. [#9932CC “By the way, this is a Demi-god support group meeting and you can't escape now! Get inside.”] She knew that Ash would be highly angry with her, but they both needed this more than they wanted to admit.
Alice set up a table in the Sunspot for just this occasion. She put down a bright and sunny table cloth to replace the white ones that were normally out. She and her mother had made sure to set up the bigger table, just in case. There were treats set up on a delicate tray; tarts, biscuits, scones, and macrons. The industrial sized coffee pot was set on the counter for people to fill up their china cups. A teapot sat on the table filled with a proper Earl Grey with delicate designs gracing the surface of the fine china.
Alice carefully made sure everyone had a neatly folded napkin in addition to their cup, saucer, and spoon set.
Casa Gniewek finished setting out the sign advertising the get-together outside of the shop. She turned to see her daughter fidgeting with the setup.
[b "Don't worry, love."] Casa gave Alice a smile, [b "Things will go well. People will come and not only will we help them, but I am sure you will make wonderful friends."]
Alice rolled her eyes, [#FFD700 "Mama, I am not worried about making friends!"]
Well...maybe she was a little bit, but for good reason! It was rare for so many adult demi-gods being in the same room together, let alone make friends. But what she was really worried about was,
[#FFD700 "...What if no one comes..."] she whispered.
Casa walked over and gave Alice a peck on top of the head, [b "They will. Those who need us will be guided here, the gods willing."]
[#FFD700 "Thank you, Mama..."]
Casa turned and headed toward the kitchen, [b "I will be in the back if you need me. Don't forget to leave your father a burnt offering!"]

Alice waved her mother off. Of course, she would make an offering. Alice picked up a lemon macaron she had set aside for her father and walked over to the small hearth set aside in the cafe for such offerings. She placed a small kiss on top of the treat and dropped it into the fire.
[#FFD700 "For Papa...Apollo."]
The shop quickly filled with the gentle smell of hyacinth flowers, which meant that her father had received the offering.
Alice turned to the front door, adjusting her black dress. She watched and waited with bated breath.
It was time for the Demi-god Support Group to meet!
