A demigod is a child of a Greek god and a mortal. Demigods have a few powers relating to their parent on Mt. Olympus. Such as a few daughters of Aphrodite can charmspeak people, while sons or daughters of Poseidon can control the water. Usually demigods become heroes, kings, and the like. Some demigods are evil. A demigod usually inherits some of the gods powers or personality. For example, Hercules is famous for strength and having many lovers. Theseus supposedly brought democracy to Athens. The demigods Heracles, Castor, Semele, Ino, Ariadne, and some others became gods.
