Akhenaton was a pharaoh who moved Egypt's capital to a newly-built city in Amarna and attempted to ban worship of the Egyptian gods in favour of Aten, the sun disk. He was opposed by priests of Amun-Ra, who were believed to have assassinated the pharaoh. After his death, the priests defaced Akhenaton's statues and removed his name from monuments. As punishment for his blasphemy, certain members of Akhenaton's bloodline were cursed to die at a young age by the priests of Amun-Ra. Akhenaton's son, Tutankhamen, was the first to fall victim to this curse, dying at the tender age of nineteen.[1]

During this time, his liaison to the African American bootleggers of the area was Josephine, a Greek demigod daughter of Hecate who'd disguised herself as a man to get the work, but eventually left when she was recruited into the Hunters of Artemis.

Archimedes was Greek demigod son of Hephaestus and is credited with the creation of many modern machines as well as an accurate approximation of pi. It is the wish among many of Archimedes' modern-day siblings to find the lost works of Archimedes. While searching for Nico di Angelo with Frank Zhang and Hazel Levesque in Rome, Leo Valdez recovered the lost works of Archimedes. He uses them to destroy the eidolons, possessive spirits working for the Earth goddess, Gaea. He planned to take them to Bunker 9 at Camp Half-Blood, to study them further.

Metis was the Titan goddess of Wisdom and Good Counsel, as well as an Oceanid. She was born from Oceanus and Tethys. According to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, Metis is smart about advising others. She helped the gods during the First Titan War.

Metis became the first wife of his cousin Zeus. She told him about a prophecy that she would give birth to a daughter and then a son who would be more powerful than him. This posed as a problem for Zeus as Metis was already pregnant with their first child. To prevent the prophecy from taking place, Zeus tricked Metis into taking the form of a fly and swallowed her.

However, Metis took the form of intelligence and gave birth to her daughter Athena, who grew inside her father's head. She taught her daughter how to transform into intelligence. Metis finally faded, becoming a noisy voice in Zeus' head. Her daughter officially became one of the Olympians as the Goddess of Wisdom and Warfare.

In myth, Metis was the one who gave Zeus the emetic potion to cause Kronos to vomit out Zeus' siblings.


Phoebe is the Titaness of Mystery. She is the sister-wife of Koios and mother of Leto and Asteria. She was the fourth girl. She lived on Delphi. She was one of the first people to figure out how to hear the voices of Delphi. According to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, she wasn't a gloomy, mysterious sort of fortune-teller and always looked on the positive side of things. Her prophecies tended to be only good stuff. After Phoebe and Koios got married, they only saw each other once in a while since they lived very far apart.

Priests of Amun-Ra

The priests of Amun-Ra opposed the pharaoh Akhenaton when he attempted to outlaw worship of the Egyptian gods. They were believed to have assassinated him and were responsible for cursing members of Akhenaton's bloodline to die at a young age. Bes hated the priests because they were, according to him, full of themselves.

They created the Book of Ra and hid its three sections hoping that a worthy magician would one day find it and reawaken Ra. Vladimir Menshikov, former leader of the Eighteenth Nome in Russia, is a descendant of the priests.[19]


Tethys is the Titaness of the Seas, Freshwater and nursing mother. She is the sister-wife of Oceanus and the mother of the Oceanids and Potami. Tethys was the third girl. According to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, she loved rivers, springs, and fresh water of any kind. She was very kind, always offered her sibling something to drink, though the others got tired of hearing that the average Titan needs twenty-four large glasses of water a day to stay hydrated. She thought of herself as a nursemaid for the whole world, since all living things need to drink.


Theia is the Titaness of Clear Sight, Splendor and Enlightenment. She is the sister-wife of Hyperion and mother of Helios, Selene and Eos. According to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, she was the oldest of the elder Titanesses. She loved sparkly things and bright scenic views. Every morning she would dance with happiness when daylight returned. She would climb mountains just so she could see for miles around. She would even delve underground and bring out precious gems with her magic powers to make them gleam and sparkle. She was the one that gave gold its luster and made diamonds glitter.


Themis is the Titaness of Divine Law, Justice and Fairness. She was the second daughter of Gaea and Ouranos. She realized from an early age that she had a natural sense of right and wrong. She understood what was fair and what wasn't, forming the first laws in the world. Whenever she was in doubt, she claimed she could draw wisdom from the earth.

According to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, Themis was wise, thoughtful, quiet, modest, and tried not to draw attention to herself, always wearing a simple shawl over her hair. She had a good reputation with her brothers and sister, mediating even the worst arguments. Themis wasn't interested in marriage, but became Zeus' second wife as none other Titaness besides Metis (who was swallowed by him) wanted to marry him. Through Zeus, Themis became the mother of the Horai. In some myths, she became the mother of The Fates, whose power scared their parents, to the point they decided to divorce in fear of conceiving more powerful children.

Because the nature of the curse was not known to them, modern doctors have ascribed various reasons to Tutankhamen's death, including poison and genetic disease.[23]
