Charles Beckendorf was the 18 year old demigod son of Hephaestus, in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. He was best known as head counselor of Cabin 9 and for his role in the destruction of the enemy ship, the Princess Andromeda, in the fifth book of the PJ&TO series,”The Last Olympian.” Beckendorf sacrificed himself when he blew up the Princess Andromeda, and awaited his girlfriend, Silena Beauregard, in Elysium. He also made an appearance in the companion story, “The Bronze Dragon,” where he must be rescued by Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, and Silena, and ultimately gets the courage to ask out Silena on their first date.


Silena Beauregard:

Silena was the girlfriend of Beckendorf until he was killed at the beginning of “The Last Olympian.” Beckendorf looked at his picture of Silena before he sacrificed his life. After Silena’s death in the Battle of Manhattan, the two were reunited in Elysium.

Percy Jackson:

The two became good friends when Beckendorf gave Percy relationship advice in “The Bronze Dragon.” Beckendorf sacrificed his life for Percy’s, when he voluntarily blew up the Princess Andromeda, with just enough time for Percy to escape.


In the beginning of the second book of PJ&TO, “The Sea of Monsters,” Beckendorf was one of the only nice people to Percy’s half-cyclopean brother, Tyson, possibly due to the fact that both Hephaestus and Cyclopes have affinities for forging.
