Born to: Mortal Dad and Goddess Athena
I, Eliza Marie Williams, was born June 8, 1998 in a small town in New Jersey to college professor Ian Williams and the goddess Athena. 2 months after I was born, Athena had to leave.
For the first few years of my life, I led a normal life. In 4th grade, I befriended Raymond Faungate, an undercover satyr looking for demigods such as me. I was almost impossibly smart, some of my friends called me “wise”. I thought my smarts came from my dad.
On January 25, 2011, everything changed. I was a 7th grader then, still friends with Raymond. My teacher, Ms. Madilinia had called me to talk to her in private. There, Ms. M had turned into an empousa, a beast similar to a vampire, however with one bronze leg and one hairy leg. She attacked me, but luckily, Raymond came in just in time to save me and to goad the empousa off. Raymond and I ran out of the school, I was in pretty bad condition, There were scratches all over my chest, arms, legs, and even one on my forehead. Along the way home, Raymond told me that my dad says that if something happens to me before I turn 14, I was not ready yet for Camp Half-Blood. At first, I didn’t know WHAT he was talking about.
There, my dad met me at the storm cellar and took me down there to stay until I was ready. Weeks passed. I was healed thanks to the nectar and ambroisa. Raymond told me about how Greek mythology was real, and believe me, I was shocked. Still then, neither Raymond, nor my dad told me who my mom was.
On Feburary 28, 2011, I met Summer. She was a really nice girl, and somehow, she found me. She told me that she was lieutenant huntress of Artemis #2. She and Artemis were interested with me joining the hunters. I agreed to join. My dad was reluctant of letting me go, but then Summer persuaded him to change his mind and let me go.
When I first arrived at the hunters, I was a little shy. I was the only demigod of the group that hasn’t been claimed yet. I spent days wondering who my mom was. Then on March 5, 2011, I was finally claimed by Athena, in an unusual way. A whole lot of owls all of a sudden perched on my arm, not a coincidence at all.
April 6, Starlight was given to me.
April 7, became a full-fledged hunter.
May 9th, I became lieutenant.
