Minor Gods

  • Aeolus — The Custodian of the Four Winds. Aeolus is an unseen character in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. In The Last Olympian, he manipulates the winds to form a barrier around Olympus that protects it from air attacks from the Titans. This also impedes Pegasus traffic, however. In The Lost Hero, he has gone insane at attempting to fill all the requests of the gods and wants to be recognized as a major god.
  • Amphitrite — The Queen of the Seas. Amphitrite is the wife of Poseidon, and a daughter of Oceanus. She is resentful of Percy, a living testament to her husband's unfaithfulness. She is described as beautiful goddess, with black hair and small horns like crab claws.
  • Boreas — The God of the North Wind. Jason, Piper, and Leo seek Boreas in his palace in The Lost Hero. Jason, Piper, and Leo meet him in his palace when they come to him for help. He has two immortal children who were Argonauts.
  • Achelous - A River God with the face of a man and the head of a bull. He had previously fought with Hercules where Hercules removed one of Achelous' horns. In The Mark of Athena, Hercules sends Jason Grace and Piper McLean to obtain Achelous' other horn. When Achelous was unwilling to give up his other horn to Hercules, Piper cuts off his other horn yet doesn't give it to Hercules. Piper uses his horn as a cornucopia at Hercules, and food comes pouring out of the mouth of the horn, burying Hercules. They fly away from Hercules' island leaving behind a mourning Achelous and an angry Hercules.
  • Deimos — The God of Terror. A son of Ares, Deimos only appears in the "Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot" story in The Demigod Files, where he torments Clarisse, a demigod daughter of Ares; Percy and Clarisse cooperate to defeat him.
  • Delphin — The God of Dolphins. Delphin is one of Poseidon's lieutenants in the war against Oceanus.
  • East River - A River God who personifies the river in New York, East River only appears in The Last Olympian where he sinks Titan ships coming to attack Olympus. He is a rival of Hudson River.
  • Ganymede - The Gods' Cup-Bearer. In The Sea of Monsters, Ganymede's voice was heard advising users of the Gray Sisters' taxi service to use the 'seatbelt' (a black chain).
  • Hebe — The Goddess of Youth, daughter of Zeus and Hera. Hebe is among the minor gods who allied themselves with the Titans in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, dissatisfied with Olympian rule. She was granted cabin 18 for her children after the war. Hebe is married to Hercules.
  • Hecate — The Goddess of Magic, cousin of Apollo and Artemis. Hecate is an ally of Kronos in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. Her empousai minions and her daughter Circe torment Percy in The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Sea of Monsters, respectively. After the Titans are defeated, she reconciles with Olympus and is granted cabin 14 at Camp Half-blood.
  • Heracles/Hercules - The greatest and strongest hero in Greek Mythology who is the son of Zeus. Heracles was mentioned a lot in the Camp Half-Blood franchise. In The Titan's Curse, Zoë Nightshade was the one who gave Heracles the ideas for several of his labors, including how to steal the Apples of the Hesperides. Percy was not pleased at the fact that Heracles never gave Zoë some of the credit for this. In The Demigod Diaries episode "Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes," Hercules was mentioned by Cacus who stated that Hercules was the only one to have defeated him. Hercules appears as a god in The Mark of Athena. He is tasked by Zeus to guard the Pillars of Hercules. Hercules is willing to let the demigods pass into the Mediterranean at first. But when Jason and Piper mentioned that they were ordered by Hera to stop the Giants, he becomes uncooperative and orders them to break the remaining Horn of the god Achelous. They do so, but Piper refuses to give the horn to Hercules which enrages him. Yet the demigods manage to escape his wrath where Piper used the Horn of Achelous to bury Hercules in food.
  • Hudson River - A River God who personifies the river in New York, Hudson River only appears in The Last Olympian where he sinks Titan ships coming to attack Olympus. He is a rival of East River.
  • Hypnos — The God of Sleep. Hypnos is the father of the minor god Morpheus and the demigod Clovis, who sleeps frequently.
  • Iris — The Goddess of Rainbows. Iris administers a network of rainbows, used by demigods and Olympians to communicate remotely. In The Son of Neptune, she meets Frank, Percy, and Hazel at her organic co-op, Rainbow Organic Foods & Lifestyles (or "ROFL," a variant of LOL). There, she sends the demigods to Phineus to discern the location of Thanatos. Her cabin at Camp Half-Blood is cabin 14.
  • Janus - The God of Gates, Doorways, Beginnings and Endings. He appears as a minor character in The Battle of the Labyrinth where he offers Annabeth a choice between two doors, which represents the situation she was in when she had to make the decision about saving Luke's soul. He has two faces, and each face seems to think the exact opposite of what the other face thinks. He is also mentioned when Percy Jackson has a dream of Daedalus. Janus makes him choose to become a murderer, which he must bear as a burden for as long as he lives.
  • Khione - The Goddess of Winter and daughter of Boreas who appears in The Lost Hero. Jason, Piper, and Leo encounter her in Boreas' palace. She ends up betraying them to help Gaia in her conquest.
  • Lares - The Guardian Deities who are the Guardians of Camp Jupiter. There is a red-tinted Lar with the head of a wolf who guards Camp Jupiter's unicorn herd.
    • Cato - A Lar. In "The Son of Neptune," Cato was seen at a senate meeting where Frank Zhang is made a Centurion.
    • Vitellius - A Lar who is a descendant of Asclepius. In "The Son of Neptune," he was first seen when Hazel was introducing Percy to him.
  • Morpheus — The God of Dreams. Morpheus is a son of Hypnos, who appears as an ally of Kronos in The Last Olympian. He puts all mortals in Manhattan to sleep before the Titan army's invasion, and puts Grover to sleep for two months during fighting in the forest of Central Park.
  • Melinoe — Goddess of Ghosts. Melinoe lives in the underworld; her body is half chalky white, half pitch black. She appears only in The Demigod Files in the short story "Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades," where she scares people by showing them the ghosts of deaths they regret.
  • Nemesis — Goddess of Revenge and Balance. Nemesis is seen in the Mark of Athena Giving Leo a fortune cookie and giving advice. Nemesis is the mother of Ethan Nakamura.
  • Palaemon — The God of Sharks. Palaemon is one of Poseidon's lieutenants in the war against Oceanus.
  • Pan — The God of the Wild. Pan is a satyr who has been missing for over 2000 years; other satyrs seek him fervently. After Percy and his friends find Pan in The Battle of the Labyrinth, he dies peacefully and releases his spirit to Percy, Grover, and Annabeth.
  • Persephone — The Goddess of Spring and Queen of the Underworld. Persephone is the wife of Hades, and the daughter Demeter and Zeus. Hades only allows her to visit Demeter, her mother, in the spring and summer; during these seasons, Persephone is kinder and more beautiful. Unlike most minor gods, she sides with Olympus during the war against the Titans. Persephone appears in The Demigod Files and The Last Olympian.
  • Phobos — The God of Fear. A son of Ares, Phobos only appears in the "Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot" story in The Demigod Files, where he torments Clarisse, a demigod daughter of Ares. He has the power to show people their greatest fears, but Percy and Clarisse cooperate to defeat him.
  • Phorcys - A primordial sea god. In The Mark of Athena, he and his sister Ceto run an aquarium in Georgia which contains a lot of rare sea monsters. Following a VIP tour, Phorcys traps Percy and Frank in a tank to fight each other. This attracts the attention of Gleeson Hedge who manages to break the glass tank as they escape promising to return and free the sea creatures that Phorcys has in his captivity.
  • Pompona — The Roman Goddess of Plenty. Pompona dislikes demigods and allies herself with Kronos and the Titans. She becomes irritated when she is mistaken for Demeter.
  • Terminus — The Roman God of Boundaries. In The Son of Neptune, Terminus is portrayed as obsessive-compulsive and obsessed with order. After Polybotes upsets the order in Camp Jupiter, the normally passive Terminus helps Percy destroy him.
  • Thanatos — The God of Death. Thanatos is a lieutenant of Hades who guards the Doors of Death, preventing the dead from returning to the world of the living. In The Son of Neptune, the forces of Gaea capture Thanatos, allowing their dead allies to quickly return to life. He resumes his duties after being rescued by Percy, Hazel, and Frank.
  • Tiberinus - A River God. Tiberinus appears to Annabeth in "The Mark of Athena." He guides her to the Athena Parthenos. He looks exactly like Gregory Peck.
  • Triton - Triton is a messenger sea god and the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite. He is depicted as a merman with two fish tails. He acts arrogant toward Percy, but respects Tyson.

Famous quotes containing the words gods and/or minor:

    If the gods think to speak outright to man, they will honorably speak outright; not shake their heads, and give an old wives’ darkling hint.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    A child who fears excessive retaliation for even minor offenses will learn very early on that to lie is to protect himself.... If your child intuits that you will react very punitively to his wrongdoing, he may be tempted to lie and may become, as time goes on, a habitual liar.
    Lawrence Balter (20th century)
