Percy is also brave, smart, and courageous, but he is also strong and caring. Percy’s main objective in the story is to get out of the underworld and stop a Roman vs Greek battle. Some devices used by the author in this story are alliterations, similes, and personifications. Some similarities in these two books are that both main characters need to solve a problem, both need help from
Percy is a little ashamed that he has gone from the only son of Poseidon and a hero of camp half-blood to the brother of a monster, but in spite that he does care for Tyson. Tyson has to deal with a lot of disdain and inequality such as bullying him ignored him , from the students at the school he attends with Percy, from the other monsters, from the half-bloods at camp. But he is unlike any other monster, he has a really pure heart. He didn’t feel ashemed of his brother eventhough his face is cylopes. He loves Percy, loves his father and believes when he prayed to Poseidon for a friend he was led to Percy.
Percy Jackson’s experiences do align with the hero’s journey. First, his experiences align with the hero’s journey because he’s, so far, following all the steps in the hero’s journey. He follows all the steps because first he starts off in an ordinary world, which is the first step, then things start to turn supernatural and adventure is basically calling him. So, he goes to do what he needs to do even if he’s very confused, just like in the hero’s journey. Next, Percy, first lives in an ordinary world but then goes into a different world/place that he’s never been to before.
Percy begins to doubt that he is capable of being a hero during the fight between him, Echidna, and Chimera because he feels as if Riptide, his sword, will cause minimal damage, and in this situation he’s not only trying to protect himself. First of all, before going into the elevator his suspicions lowered once Grover reassured him that there were probably no monsters since the smell is similar to that of underground. Once Percy got into the elevator, leaving Annabeth and Grover behind, he didn’t exactly expect the “chihuahua” to be Chimera, or the fat lady to be Echidna. He was baffled and caught in surprise unlike most of the other times where he was with his friends and they could protect each other. No, in this situation it was all on him.
Throughout “The Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan, the main character Percy Jackson grows in many ways. Through application of Joseph Campbell’s Hero Cycle, Percy’s development as a leader over the course of “The Lightning Thief” can be analyzed (Campbell). Percy is born into the hero’s cycle at his natural birth and his call to adventure is the attack by Mrs. Dodds. Percy crosses the threshold, when he leaves Montauk with his mother and Grover and the first trial testing his leadership is on the bus with the furies. Trials exemplifying Percy’s growth include: the furies, Medusa, the Saint Louis Arch, the “Waterland” Waterpark, the Lotus Hotel, Crusty’s Waterbed Palace, and Hades and the Underworld.
Finally, the entering the unknown happens. I know this because when he goes to camp half-blood there is the constant threat of danger. Also his strength and courage is tested time and time again. In conclusion, percy’s experiences align with the Hero’s
This moment came at surprise for Percy because he thought that Ares was the friend who betrayed him in the prophecy. The prophecy stated Percy’s future of what will happen to him during and after his mission. I like this moment because of the emotion, excitement, and the intensity in this scene. Another memorable moment for me in the lightning thief was when Percy’s mom saves Percy and fights the monster by herself. I really like this moment because of the sacrifice that Percy’s mom had done to protect
In the novel The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy, the main character, Marguerite, has many epiphanies that change her life immensely. When the novel commences, Marguerite believes that her husband, Sir Percy, does not love her, and she only feels “good-humored contempt” towards him (99).

The series before this was called Percy Jackson & the Olympians, and he was the main focus. I feel like during this whole series I’m not getting Percy. By that I mean they don’t really talk about his emotions besides when it’s about Annabeth. I understand he’s in love but I don’t think that means love is the only emotion he feels.
