ψ Number of Years at Camp: 3
ψ Year Rounder/Summer Camp: Goes home to California for the winter months, but otherwise year round. Seth would like to stay at camp all year round, but his mother insists on having him around for at least part of the year, so they compromised on winter, because Seth likes the warmth of Californian winters anyway. He’s slightly embarrassed about this because no other camper (to his knowledge) does something like this, but she is his mother, and he doesn’t want to fight her on something that is actually reasonable (for a change)--the desire to see one’s son.

Ω Personality: insolent | argumentative | jumpy | impulsive | stubborn | diligent | loyal
Seth is just an all-around little brat to most women, including his mother and most older female campers. He is only smart around goddesses, being the good-mannered boy that he knows how to be. He’s jumpy at being physically touched (NO hugs) and he hates people patting his hair or calling him “cute” or commenting on what a “sweet” boy he looks like. He will impulsively smack their hands away or spill something on them.
On the other hand, he is exceptionally curious to learn about the gods and goddesses and loves to train until he is half dead with exhaustion. If he sets his mind to a task, Seth is diligent and won’t rest until the job is done. Often he sets too-high, suicidal training goals for himself, as if he forgets that he’s only 14 and has ample time to improve. He’s really selective about those he befriends, especially female friends...but once you’re in his heart, he’s fiercely loyal and protective of you (stubborn to the death, this boy).
Ω History: Seth’s mother, Selene, was a beautiful, airheaded, caring, and stubborn young woman of 20 when she met Hermes (disguised as a human of course). She was young and in love, so she followed her heart. When her pregnancy was announced, her elderly father was very unhappy, but she stubbornly kept the baby. Her father passed away shortly after the boy was born, leaving her with lots of money but no guidance. Selene really, really did try her absolute hardest to be a good mother, but while she was caring and loving, she wasn't responsible or had a lot of common sense. Seth grew up without any material wants for they lived comfortably off his grandfather's money, but he often suffered from loneliness because Selene would be living her own life and could forget to check in with her son for weeks on end. Seth had to figure out a lot of things for himself, and the fact that he struggled greatly in school only made things harder. It was hard to make friends because they either despised him for his money ("all that wealth is wasted on that stupid kid") or they only got close to him only for his money.
Due to his mother's lack of responsibility, Seth developed a pretty negative view of women, finding them focused on extremely trivial things like his mother or they were way too strict and punishing like the headmistress that ran his school. He just didn't really have a good female role model in his life and deep down he wants one so badly, but he pretends he doesn't need any woman in his life at all. The nannies who raised him changed all the time so he wasn't able to form any close connections with them.
Then, on his 11th birthday, an elderly man arrived to be their gardener. Selene was in that phase where she wanted a real live gardener and butler and all that jazz. The gardener was called Mr. Williams and right away he noticed Seth's loneliness. He took the boy under his wing and introduced him to Greek myths, good wine, and most of all, introduced him to the idea of an adult he could rely on. But reading the Greek myths became weird after a while because some of the tales were hitting too close to home...and when Seth finally went to Mr. Williams about it (bashfully and reluctantly because he didn't want to seem crazy), Mr. Williams was overjoyed and promptly explained just who Seth's father was. He offered to take Seth to a place across the country where there were more kids like him and Selene, who had realized at this stage that she'd been a terrible parent, was super eager to please Seth and allowed him to go without a second thought. Seth grew to love Camp Half-Blood, and his loneliness dissipated for good.
§ Selene Winters [mother - 34 ] - professional diva, total knockout/bombshell, complete California gal. Seth and his mother have an interesting relationship; he thinks she’s airheaded and useless and she’s the reason he does not like interacting with females. He acts all grumpy around her, but at the same time, he feels like he must protect her and goes to ridiculous lengths to make sure she doesn’t know about his problems. She’s a kind and loving person, except she’s probably more suited to be a big sister than a mother. Especially since she had Seth at such a young age.
§ Mr. Williams [non-blood related - 67] - Seth's mentor, grandfather figure, gardener (he still works as a gardener although he doesn't have to anymore--Selene would provide for him for free, but he likes doing his job) and overall Seth's favorite adult in the world.
"Mr. Williams" is actually a satyr named Vlassis but took on the name Mr. Able Williams to appear more respectable and ordinary. He's always been more of a blending into the background satyr, and as he grew older, his desires to recruit demigods decreased even further. It took him a while to make up his mind to be Seth's gardener, but he is most happy with that decision now. The Mist hides his mythological form from human eyes (like Selene) but Seth learned his true identity once he arrived at Camp Half-blood.
