Haze has a bad past and hopes she never encounters Gaea again. Hazel also has powers, she can make gold or any precious medal rise from the earth. The reason she can do this is because of her dad Pluto, god of the dead and wealth. Since gold is a sign of wealth, she can make it rise from the ground as if she were a magnet to gold. But only she can touch that gold because if anybody else touches it, they turn into stone because its Pluto’s gold and not the other person touching it so it’s considered stealing. Hazel lives in Camp Rome with all of the other demigods as she trains there to fight monsters and keep mortals safe from invasions from any titan or monster.

Frank on the other hand is a klutz. The only thing he is good at is archery which is why he thinks his father is Apollo. But one thing his grandmother always bugs him about is some special power.
