Hello. In this post, I'll be listing some of my favorite things about Paul, a criminally underrated character.
He's wonderful to Sally.
Sally lost her parents in a plane crash. She had to quit her dreams to help her uncle. She was in an abusive relationship. And her son nearly dies every week. She deserves to loosen up and laugh sometimes. Paul does that.
"My mom was sitting at out kitchen table with some . . . guy. They were laughing hysterically"
Just one of the instances he was an amazing person.
He's very nice to Percy
Percy hasn't really had a proper father figure. Poseidon doesn't count, he just pops in here and there. Paul fills that gap, he's very understanding towards Percy.
"He'd managed to convince Goode High School to accept me for ninth grade, despite the fact that I'd gotten kicked out of every school I'd ever attended."
Percy is a problem child, to say the least. He’s been kicked out of many schools and has done things that have endangered the students and staff. And Paul convinces the school to let him in. That really showed that not only Is he nice to Sally, he cares about Percy as well.
This isn't the only occasion Paul has been caring towards Percy. There's more.
"Your mom," Paul said. "I'm thinking about proposing to her." I almost dropped my cup. "You mean . . . marrying her? You and her?" "Well, that was the general idea. Would that be okay with you?" "You're asking my permission?" Paul scratched his beard. "I don't know if it's permission, so much, but she's your mother. And I know you're going through a lot. I wouldn't feel right if I didn't talk to you about it first, man to man."
While Paul wasn't necessarily asking permission, the fact that he went out of his way to make sure Percy was fine with it says a lot. he really cares about Percy's feelings
He's a great swordfighter
Paul grabbed a sword from a fallen hero and did a pretty fine job keeping a dracanae busy. He stabbed her in the gut, and she disintegrated. "Paul?" I said in amazement. He turned toward be and grinned. "I hope that was a monster I just killed. I was a Shakesperian actor in college! Picked up a little swordplay!"
Just . . . wow. Paul's only training at this point is being an actor. He can't even see the monsters real form because of the mist. But he beats a trained dracanae. Very impressive.
Random Thing I Have to Say
Poseidon, a canonical rap*st, gets more attention than Paul. He even has official art, and Paul doesn't .
This is unnaceptable
Thanks for reading!
I'm starting to really not understand this whole god dna story.
So Rick Riordan says gods have no dna. That would mean that every demigod child must look exactly like their mortal parent. But it doesn't, since the entire Athena cabin has blonde hair and gray eyes and etc. So you could assume that the gods determine how the children look. I can "understand" that. After all, we all don't want to ship incest.
But in my opinion it makes no sense why the biological child of Sally and Paul Blofis has Percys ( who has Poseidons) sea-green eyes. It makes literally no sense. Neither Sally nor Paul have godly roots or are related to Poseidon. At least it was never said or mentioned. (Sally has blue eyes not green eyes) It doesn't make any sense that a god has a determination over the appearance of estelle, since she is in no way related to gods.
So either Sally and Poseidon had something together again. (Or a Sally-Poseidon-Paul thing).
It has to be at least something with Sally and Poseidon, because Sally was pregnant after all. We have learned in ToA The Hidden Oracle that when a god and a male mortal have a child together, the god becomes "pregnant". Kind of like that.
Or rick riordan wanted Estelle have green eyes like her big brother, just wrote his sh/t again without thinking a second time or that it interested him at all, as so often before.
By the way, salt and pepper hair simply means black hair with gray streaks. It is impossible that a child / baby already has gray streaks. Unless it has a specific inherited syndrome called piebaldism. This is a white strand in the hair that grows in the forehead area. Could be because Paul is also described with salt and pepper hair and he's only in his mid thirties.
Yeah, Ricks crap is bothering me or maybe he is a genius, will writing a new series but about Estelle being a demigod and make more money and cash but I don´t think so
Paul is the best step father in media history, he is the only person only person other than Sally who I would let do my grocery shopping. Don has official art and all we have for the god among men is this
We stan a king, I'm sorry Paul.
I have gone through so many fan arts and I haven’t seen any of PERCY IN A TUX FOR HIS MOM AND PAULS WEDDING like how come we don’t have any of ANNABETH HELPING PERCY BECAUSE SALLY IS GETTING MORE BEAUTIFUL AND READY FOR ONR OF THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF HER LIFE also can’t you just imagine it it would be so cute. If you agree say so in the comments

I’m back haha if anyone remembers me or cares. I finally got and finished ToN.
This post is gonna be about mortals who we all love and look up to. And I think we all agree that they are all amazing especially since they were able to wrap their heads around the fact that there are gods and goddesses and monsters and that the world is gonna end in x amount of days.
P.S. Not including magicians, non-humans, valkyries, dead mortals and former or I guess present gods.
(Couldn’t find much art for Amir so I settled for falafel)
1.) Amir Fadlan
Oh, where do I even start? I love this guy so much. He is kind, loyal, caring and above all, a wonderful friend and fiancée who also happens to be very gifted at making falafel. He is there for Sam and cares about her and is ready to do anything for her despite the fact that he doesn’t wholeheartedly understand what is going on. He helped Jimmy, I mean Magnus survive through the years of being homeless by giving him food for free. He is just an all-around good guy who would stop at nothing to make sure the people he love are safe and happy. Hello, it’s not everyday that you get offered flight lessons just because.
(Also couldn’t find much Paul art which honestly needs to change)
2.) Paul Blofis
Honestly have nothing bad to say about him. He is a cool guy. He is a great husband, step-dad and dad. Like can you think of anyone else who would agree to swing a sword around without seeing their targets or knowing if there actually are targets? Can you think of another guy who can break up a fight between a Gaul and a former god? I didn’t think so. And to top it all of, the guy is very respectful. In contrast to Gabe, Paul actually takes Percy’s feelings into consideration especially when he was planning on proposing to Sally. I also like the fact that he knows that he won’t replace Percy’s dad and is cool with it. Honestly, I could go on and on but I’ll stop here for now.
3.) Sally Jackson
I love her so so so so much. Sally Jackson is so incredible. She persevered through living with Gabe just to help her son get out of harms way. She gets captured by Hades, and is constantly fearing that one day, her son might be gone. Despite that, she has a sunny disposition and does the best she can to make her family safe and happy. From baking blue cookies, to working at a candy shop for years so that she could support Percy, to being kind to strangers like Meg and Lester. She has been through a lot and it’s really nice to see that she’s living a happy life now, being a successful author and mother to a happy healthy baby girl.
4.) Rachel Dare
Rachel Elizabeth Dare, now this may be the most “controversial” one but I included her here because I feel like when you say mortal in the CHB chronicles, you immediately think of Rachel. She can be described as many things, ranging from spunky, to bold, to artistic to ...an oracle. Whatever it is, she is a character that is quite hard to forget. I mean who could forget the fact that she threw a blue hairbrush to Kronos, you know the Lord of Titans. She also is essential to every single quest seeing as she is the oracle. She also seems to be a good friend which is more apparent in ToN because we see her comfort Lester despite the fact that she is scared and she also needs someone to reassure her that everything is gonna be alright.
I decided that Estelle as a bonus just because we don’t know that much about her but I still wanted to include her. Estelle Blofis is the daughter of Paul Blofis and Sally Jackson. She is described to always be smiling and laughing and is a complete bundle of joy. She laughs at anything and I think that whenever you’re sad, you should just think of Estelle looking at her fingers and laughing like it is the most bizarre thing ever. She is so cuteee!
Anyways, that’s it for this post, I hope you liked it and thank you so much for reading it! Who else would you have placed in the list?
Ok so Estelle has sea green eyes like Percy right Percy got that from Poseidon and rhea if i'm not mistaken so ether Paul has eyes a pretty as a god and a titan or something is off about her parentage also why is her species listed as demigod unless her dad is secretly Poseidon which would be a bit awkward so some one help

Remember how moms are always mad when u get a tattoo? Now imagine how Sally felt after the war when she saw Percy's. She must've been furious. This is how I think it played out:
Percy: Mom... the war's over. Gaia... we defeated her.
Sally: Percy! *cries* It's been months! And ANOTHER WAR? Imma go chew out your father soon, but you're here! Paul, Percy's HOME!
Paul: Percy! We have some exciting news to tell you, but first settle down son.
*2 days later*
Sally: Perseus Jackson!!!!!
Percy: *wakes up* (Why does everyone like my name? First queen porta potty now this...!) Yeah, Mom?
Sally: Thought I wouldn't notice eh?
Percy: What are you talking-
Sally: You gonna tell me about it?
Sally: Got this chancla(slipper) for $2 dollars! WHST"S WITH THE TATTOO?????
Percy: Minatour dung.
Sally: What was that?
Tell me how you think sally would react, or how this scnario would play out in the comments!
Okay, I'm gonna cut straight to the point.
If Celestial Bronze can't touch humans, why could Paul pick up the sword during the Battle of Manhatten?
Chiron said the blade couldn't hurt mortals, does that only apply for the blade? Or does it apply for the hilt and the rest of the sword as well...?
My brain just threw this at me.
So I’ve heard a lot of people say things like, what if Estelle (Percy’s sister) might be related to the godly world in some way. Things like, Estelle might become a hunter, Estelle might be able to see through the mist, Estelle might be Bianca’s reincarnation. I never liked those. I always was happy with the idea that Sally finally got a normal life with Paul.
Tell me what you think.
I saw a post called fixing Paul Blofis by @Amela13 and this got me thinking. I believe and I always have that Paul Blofis is, in fact, Poseidon. This was my reply to her post and I was asked to elaborate so here we are.
(When Percy agreed so easily to Paul marrying Sally) I think Rick was leaving his options open. It does happen, sometimes, that an author has an idea and they are toying with it and this was meant to be a hint but since the story line did not come back around in future novels, the idea is dropped and it seems out of character. Here is what can easily explain this moment.
Percy may have realised that Paul Blofis is Poseidon, which would explain why he was so quick to agree. He knew he and his mom and sister would be treated fairly well. There are many clues that point to it.
Here come the clues:
First, Percy walks in and sees Paul wearing Neptune's lucky fishing hat. Isn't that an odd thing for a guy to do? Wear another man's hat, your girlfriend ex's hat? A god no less. Some might argue that it is Neptune's not Poseidon's but Poseidon and Neptune are the same god just different aspects.Does this prove anything? No but it does set off an alarm.
Next, Paul accepts very easily the existance of greek gods and Monsters and the fact that Percy is a demigod and he covers for him at school. This brings about another issue. Paul cannot be Poseidon because he is a teacher and Poseidon has better things to do. Well, perhaps it is a sacrifice he is willing to make for love. It has been proven that the gods can be in many places at one time so why not?
Next, Percy agrees quickly to the future nuptuals. Considering the prior relationship Sally had been through, Percy should be asking a million questions, warning and threatning Paul with all he his, when the question arises but he is like "Sure! Great".
I believe he doesn't need to do this because he knows that Poseidon and Sally have loved each other for always and that he would treat her "as the Queen she is." Poseidon's words there. So that was a no brainer for Percy. Is this proof again? No but dind ding ding...
This one is where I first realised Paul and Poseidon may very well be the same person. During the Battle of Manhattan, Paul joins the fight. He is not put asleep nor is Sally. Only a god could protect them from falling asleep like the rest of Manhattan. Why would Paul and Sally be saved from this fate? Because Paul is Poseidon and he protected Sally and this also explains the clear sight. Paul wanted to help Percy but since he was so busy at his Palace in the sea, he chose to protect the Jackson family and help them survive and possibly win the Battle of Manhattan.
Poseidon was there all along but in a weaker form which was Paul. Does this prove Poseidon is Paul? The alarm should be ringing very, very loudly now.
On their own, these items just point to the possibility that Paul is indeed Poseidon but with all these things put together, doesn't this make a good case that Poseidon is Paul Blofis?
Let me know what you think and if there is more evidence, feel free to share.
