Percy Jackson is main the protagonist and narrator of the Percy Jackson series, as well as one of main protagonists of its sequel, Heroes of Olympus. The books follows him from his twelfth year till his seventeenth, during which he grows up in a dangerous world of modern-day Greek Mythology.


Percy is the son of Poseidon. His personality vastly differs in the two series, which can be connected with the age and experience; for example, he's much more relaxed and carefree but insecure in the first series (particularly during The Lightning Thief), while during the second one his fatal flaw of loyalty presents much bigger risk (House of Hades is prime example).

He's very forgiving (as shown by honoring Luke's wish in The Last Olympian), but he has no patience with internal squabbles in times of war(shown in Mark of Athena when he sassed Octavian). Sometimes quite naive, shy and dense (hence Annabeth's nickname for him Seaweed Brain), he shows surprising amount of confidence and leadership skills in the face of danger, putting everyone else's well-being before his.

His powers are mostly water and sea-oriented (manipulating boats, controlling water in all three phases, perfect bearings at sea), but he showed signs of being able to control earthquakes and storms.

His love-life was often toyed with during the series by the goddess of love, Aphrodite (with Rachel Elizabeth Dare and Calypso for example). He ultimately begins dating Annabeth Chase, one of his first friends, at the end of The Last Olympian.






  • A Crown of Golden Leaves- Annabeth, a lady from the declining polis called Athens, must marry the Heir Apparent of Rome in order to save her country and the rapidly expanding world from a threat even the gods couldn't foresee. (TheDragonRider)
  • Children of Loss- The Lotus Hotel, paradise for the right price. Nico collapses in front of the Lotus Hotel and is taken in by the manager, Percy. But is this really paradise? (SonofHades)
  • Shattered- The world is hardly ever what it seems. We have seen our heroes fight monsters, gods, titans, and even the very Earth itself But, there were rules and procedures to be followed A clear defined path to victory. Now the enemy has no limits, no safeties, no restraints. Or Mortals aren't as blind and powerless as the gods seem to think... (BobInTheComments)
  • Murkiest Intentions- On Isla Nublar, one wrong move could mean certain death. Park manager Annabeth Chase is certain that adding the raptor paddock with their infuriating new trainer, Percy Jackson, is the epitome of this idea. But they find that here in Jurassic World, the secrets that lie in the shadows just might be more dangerous than the dinosaurs themselves. (inkncoffee)
