Rick Riordan’s fantasy world is finally coming to life. Again, that is. Who can forget the Logan Lerman starring Percy Jackson movies, after all? Those movies belonged to a class of their own, and It was not going to be easy for the Disney+ series to match that hype.

But the series starring Walker Scobell in the titular role might have done justice to the fans, largely thanks to the fact that it sticks to the books, and may have a chance of even outperforming the Alexandro Daddario-starrer movies.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians witnesses the introduction of many demi-gods

Percy Jackson and the Olympians gives fans a sneak peek into the world of demi-gods

The 2023 series checks many boxes. The fact that it relies largely on the book is just one of them. One of its noteworthy features is the fact that various Greek gods take center stage in the show, and their (illegitimate) kids as well. That is to be expected.

After all, it is a show about demi-gods. Percy Jackson and the Olympians doesn’t hold back from flexing them, representing the characters in all their glory. Till now, fans might have only witnessed the first season. And yet, the series has already introduced a fair number of demi-gods. Here is a list of all the demi-gods who made an appearance in Season 1.

Percy Jackson

Percy Jackson and the Olympians will start streaming on 20 December 2023 on Disney+.
Walker Scobell’s Percy Jackson has everyone hyped

This one would have been anyone’s guess. After all, there won’t be a Percy Jackson and the Olympians without Percy Jackson AKA the son of Poseidon. The character, played by Walker Scobell, is a 12-year-old who has been going through a lot of schools in a short period, because of what his teachers seem to label as ADHD or dyslexia. But it doesn’t take our hero long to realize that what he sees is actually true. He found out that mechanical rhinos and Pegasus really do exist. And who he truly is – a demigod.

Little does he know what adventures fate holds in store for him.

Annabeth Chase

Leah Jeffries’ Annabeth Chase might turn out to be one of the closest friends Percy Jackson has

Don’t be fooled by Annabeth Chase’s locks. She is one of the most gifted fighters in Camp Half-Blood (the only place that can safely harbor half-bloods) and a brilliant tactician. These attributes are in no small part down to the fact that she is the daughter of Athena, the goddess of War, wisdom, and military strategy. Played by Leah Jeffries, there are a lot of things that make her stand out, including the fact that her New York Yankees cap, a gift from her mother, gives her the added advantage of going invisible when she dons it.

One of the central characters in the series, she only wants a chance to prove her worth to her mother. And what better chance to do that than banding together with the son of Poseidon?

Luke Castellan

Charlie Bushnell
Charlie Bushnell’s Luke Castellan is going to be a central character in the series

Luke Castellan is a son of Hermes, the Greek god of Travelers, and is portrayed in the series by Charles Bushnell. Being Hermes’ child, he has not been gifted with any special powers. Despite his handicap, he’s someone who has made a name for himself with his efficient swordsmanship in Camp Half-Blood. One of the more level-headed demi-gods in the Camp, his friendship with Percy was only natural once he took our protagonist under his wing at the outset.

Chris Rodriguez is also one of the few demi-gods to be introduced

Chris Rodriguez is another son of Hermes who comes to Percy’s aid. One of the more important characters in Rick Riordan’s books, the demi-god, portrayed by Andrew Alvarez, so far has had only a limited role in the series, helping his brother Luke in bringing Percy to the Camp by providing some valuable bits of information, without which our protagonist might not have come to be a part of the Camp.

Clarisse La Rue

Dior Goodjohn
Dior Goodjohn’s Clarisse La Rue looks primed to be Percy’s rival for some time to come

Another major demigod introduced in the series is Clarisse La Rue, daughter of Ares, the fabled god of war. And she turns out a lot like her father. With a penchant for violence and a hot head, she is one of the people who have been bothered by Percy Jackson’s induction into the Camp. She attempts to fend Percy off to no avail, and she also loses out on a game of Capture the Flag and her most-loved weapon – a spear from her father. Both were losses she suffered at the hands of the new entrant into the camp. Safe to say that Percy has found a rival who will leave no stone unturned to make his life hell.
