Annabeth looks like a typical California girl. She loves architecture, and spends her free time designing new buildings and visiting national monuments. Her fatal flaw is pride. She thinks she can do anything and does it well. Annabeth can be very caring but possessive of the people she loves. For example, she is very anxious of losing Percy to another girl like Rachel or Calypso.

Percy is a brave, spirited natural leader, and is willing to risk his life to save friends, family, strangers, and sometimes even enemies. He has a sarcastic and smart sense of humor.
