Camp Half-Blood AU (also known as Percy Jackson AU and Heroes of Olympus AU) is a relatively unknown but still well-loved AU (Alternate Universe) within the world of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians. In the AU, Hiccup, Merida, Rapunzel and Jack Frost are all demigods who are training at Camp Half-Blood. Because it is not canon, ideas for this AU are shown through fanfiction, fanart, and other fan-made works. This can be considered a sub-scenario for Modern AU

About the AU

For those who don't know the Percy Jackson series, the idea of Camp Half-Blood is a summer camp where demigods (half human and half god) can be sheltered from monsters while training for survival. They are sorted into cabins by who their parent is.

Featured Characters

Often in this AU, the Big Four are often placed into a lineage of a certain god or goddess. However, some fans place the Big Four as roles of the characters, such as Merida being Rachel. Below are the lineages the Big Four are commonly placed in:

The Big Four

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

Hiccup is widely accepted as a son of Hephaestus (God of Fire and the Forge) based on his traits in his feature film. Much like his experiences on Berk, this type of family line can cause some confusion based on his stature - he would be quite small for a demigod of blacksmiths. However, his creativity and ability to invent many things fits well with this lineage, although it may cause some to question if he truly belongs as a son of Athena (Goddess of Wisdom, Culture and Warfare).

In other cases, Hiccup is portrayed as Leo Valdez, one of the Seven Demigods of the Prophecy, for their abilities with the smithy, and because the both ride dragons (Hiccup rides Toothless and Leo rides Festus, the robotic dragon made by the cabin of Hephaestus). 

Jack Frost

Jack is often portrayed as a son of Hermes (God of Roads and Merchants) based on his personality. This is mainly due to his trickster, fun-loving nature and ability to ride the wind.

However, Jack also has been accepted as the son of Boreas (Minor God of the North Wind) for a series of reasons that go beyond his personality. Firstly, because he is the son of a minor god, he would not have his own cabin, unless the story was based after Percy Jackson demands that the children of minor Demigods also have Cabins. Additionally, it would make sense that he would gain his winter powers from the God of the North Wind that brings winter. This type of lineage would bring forth a lot of plot development and character development for Jack. For the same reasons, Jack is sometimes portrayed as a son of Khione (Goddes of Snow).

When slotted into characters from the series, Jack would usually play Percy Jackson or Luke Castellan.

Merida DunBroch

Merida is one of the more disputed characters in terms of her lineage.  One of her more common portrayals is the daughter of Zeus (God of Sky and Thunder) based on her personality.  Her traits as being tough and headstrong, as well as containing the spirit of a leader, cause many to see her as a daughter of the father of the gods. Angus can even be portrayed as the Pegasus that she commonly rides and is close with at Camp Half-Blood.

Another commonly shown lineage is the daughter of Ares (God of War) due to her personality and how it compares to the god. Her short, violent temper and desire to fend for herself, as well as her weaponry skills, would fit with this lineage.

Finally, some even have placed her as a daughter of Apollo (God of Archery) based on her skills with the bow, her bow can be given to her by Apollo with a special ability that he blest it with, so it could assist her on quests and could monsters with on arrow. In comparison, others have included her as a Hunter of Artemis due to her skill at archery and her desire to stay single and independent from others. 

Some also believe that she is daughter of Ares (God of war) and joins the hunters of Artemis (goddess of archery and maidenhood) as Merida is a professional archer and she has no interest in boys.

Merida is also portrayed as the Oracle of Delphi because she is somehow like Rachel Elizabeth Dare, through personality and appearance.

Rapunzel Corona

Rapunzel is commonly portrayed a daughter of Apollo (God of Music, Healing, and Prophecy) for many reasons that include her personality, passions, and powers. The first idea for this is because of her connection to the sun as well as her healing powers that she holds with her hair.  Finally, because she also breaks into spontaneous musical numbers, this would add an additional connection between herself and her father.

She also could be considered a daughter of Iris (Goddess of the Rainbow) because of her ability to control light and her artistic abilities. Maximus can even be portrayed as the Pegasus that she commonly rides and is close with at Camp Half-Blood.

Extra Characters

Pitch Black

Being the spirit of fear, Pitch fits in nicely with his counterpart in Greek mythology -- Phobos (God of Fear). His Nightmares can be either eidolons or storm spirits (venti).         


Since Maui is alright a demigod of the wind and sea, his Greek God parent would most likely be Notus (God of the South Wind) or Poseidon (God of the Seas). His Magical Fishhook can serve as a gift that was given to him by his Greek God parent.

Flynn Rider

Because of his thieving past and being fast on his feet, Flynn is seen as a son of Hermes (God of Roads and Merchants), as Hermes was also known as a thief (at a young age) in one of the Greek legends and many of his children have inherited that trait. The Stabbington Brothers, Lance Strongbow, Angry and Red can also be children of Hermes, as they are all thieves that are from the world of Tangled. When Luke Castellan was rounding up demigods to serve the Titan God, Kronos, the Stabbingtons (and other villain Tangled thieves) would have joined Luke, while Eugene and the other three remained with the other campers and sided with Percy Jackson.

While caring about his appearance - as he doesn't like how his nose is brought out in the wanted posters of him and had "asked" the Pub Thugs to not hit his face, - and had changed his ways because of love, he could also be a son of Aphrodite (Goddess of Love and Beauty).

Mavis Dracula

Since vampires are known as the "undead", Mavis can be placed as a daughter of Hades (God of the Dead). While vampires being known as "romantic monsters" - from the way that they are brought out or presented in stories like Dracula and the Twilight saga - can even make her a daughter of Aphrodite (Goddess of Love and Beauty), with her dark clothing making her a rebel child with her own kind of style and beauty. The camp for vampires, Camp Winnepacaca can even serve as a base/template for Camp-Half Blood or its Roman counterpart Camp Jupiter, as both camps help its campers master their abilities and learn many skills, along with its location keeping the sunlight of day away from the camp.

Hiro Hamada

Hiro's intelligence and battle strategy at the Botfights and against Yokai, can make him a son of Athena (Goddess of Wisdom, Culture and Warfare). His skills in robotics and building armor and gear for himself and his friends can also make him a child of Hephaestus (God of the Forge). He and Tadashi can ever share the god and mortal parent (like the Di Angelos) or have the same god parent and a different mortal parent, making them brothers from their god parent.

When slotted into characters from the series, Hiro would usually play Nico Di Angelo as they both have an older sibling that died and held anger to wards the one that they held responsible. Along with the role of Leo Valdez, one of the Seven Demigods of the Prophecy, for their abilities with "crafting", and because the both of them rode and formed a bond with a robot (Hiro with Baymax and Leo with Festus, the robotic dragon made by the cabin of Hephaestus).

The Guardians

Since the Guardians are mysterious, magical beings they can easily be portrayed as some of the Gods and Spirits from the Greek and even Roman myths and legends. As they led their help and wisdom to young Demigods that seek their help on their quests. As well as being portrayed as adult demigods or counselors at Camp Half-Blood or Camp Jupiter.

North's icy background, living in the north and long white beard is the reason why fans see him as Boreas (Minor God of the North Wind), and possibly Jack's father when he is placed as a child of the Minor God of the North Wind; as the two share father and son like bond. While other fans think that he should be placed as one of Boreas's demigod children.

Queen Elsa

Due to Elsa's ice powers, she could be a daughter of Khione (Goddess of Snow). Fans have also placed her as a daughter of Boreas (Minor God of the North Wind), as their both wielders of ice and with how Elsa was able to make the ice storm raging around Arendelle stop, when Hans told her that Anna was "dead"; as if the ice and snow in the storm reacted to her emotions. The words in the song "Let it Go", also mention the wind and Elsa feeling that she is apart of it when she began to embrace her ice magic and having control over it, for the first time in years. Since Khione and Boreas are minor gods, she would not have her own cabin, unless the story was based after Percy Jackson demands that the children of minor Demigods also have Cabins.


Since the protectors of young Razorwhip dragons are a tribe of women that keep men off their island so not to anger the Razorwhip mothers, and were given her task by a goddess, can easily make them Hunters of Artemis. With their chief, Atali as Artemis (Goddess of the Hunt and Maidenhood); or as one of her best hunters. The tribe of women can also be featured as the other female only group, the Amazons.

Miguel Rivera

Due to Miguel's love of music and learning how to play a guitar by watching over guitarists, he can easily be placed as a son of Apollo (God of Music); as his "mortal" family's band on music would make him feel that Camp Half-Blood is the one place that he can play (without hiding or keeping his love for music a secret) and can be himself. While traveling to the Land of the Dead and meeting his deceased family members (like Imelda and Héctor), could also make him a son of Hades (God of the Dead). Which could have Dante as a Hellhound (or any other Greek mythology dog) that his Greek God parent sent to keep Miguel safe, from any monsters that would wish him harm.

Astrid Hofferson

Astrid would most likely be placed as either a daughter of Ares (God of War) or Athena (Goddess of Wisdom and Warfare). As she is a skilled fighter with her weapon of choice (a specially made and "super"-powered axe can be given to her by Ares, should he be placed as her Greek God parent) and has been training to fight since she was little.
