We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love. ~ ~~~~~

So generally speaking prior to a few months ago, he was outgoing, flirty, a typical child of Eros, but after pissing Circe off and getting this curse, so he can't feel physical touch (though to be fair, the not feeling pain has its advantages) he's been a bit frustrated to say the least, as he can't....welll........*wink wink* sure he can try, but not feeling can make it rather frustrating, so he has mood swings now. One minute he'll be his bubbly happy self, the next he'll be cold, depressed and distant.
Now that Holden has his sense of touch back, you'd think he'd be back to his chipper old self, but all the shit that went down with Rory really struck a nerve. He's more reserved now, less outgoing, a child of love afraid to love.
First Time at Camp over 6 years ago
For the most part 6 years ago, after the death of his mother, he had a fairly normal life at camp, he went on a quest 4 years ago that led him to meeting Circe and also to fall in love with her. She kept him on her island, not ageing, to be her consort, but after catching him with a nymph servant of hers, well, long story short, now he's back at camp and ageing and cursed.
Current Camp Life
He's made a few new friends since being back at camp. Notably, Kathryn Taylor, a child of Iris and Rory O'Brien. Things were going really well with Rory when Circe stepped in and kidnapped him to test Holden. Holden had a choice, have his curse lifted and be free of it, or save Rory. Realising his feelings for Rory went deeper than just sexual, he set off to Circe's island with Fabian Hawkins's, his half brother. When they got there, he ended up finding Rory in bed with the same Erotiad that Holden had cheated on Circe with. Feeling that she had put Holden through enough, Circe lifted his curse, but by then Holden didn't really care. They all went back to camp, including the Erotiad.
Rory has now left camp entirely, as well as the Erotiad. That makes Holden a bit more at ease, but he still feels hurt the way things went down and has been reserved about it all. Though he finds talking to Skylar helps a bit.
Find him someone to date, possibly Glen, not sure, nothing's set in stone.
Help do an rp with Wonder with him and Skylar (WIP, to be planned out in more detail soon, and if you're reading this, no it's not incest >.<)
Recently Eros had an angry encounter with Ares, Aphrodite was acting strangely, she refused to pay attention to him. Ares produced a father, that only could have come from one of Eros' arrows, and accuse Eros of making her fall in love with a horse. Eros obviously didn't do it, and doesn't know what's going on or who got a hold of some of his arrows. (End game, Eos, a former lover of Hephaestus prior to his marriage of Aphrodite, was always jealous and furious the way that Aphrodite treated Hephaestus and cheated on him with Ares. She convinced one of her sons (wind gods) to use their powers to knock some arrows out of Eros' quiver when he wasn't paying attention. Once she had them, she used one to make Aphrodite fall in love with anything other than Ares or Heph. The only way to break the spell is to find and destroy the arrow that hit Aphrodite.)
Some love nymphs have been going missing, someone's trying to make it look like they died. Because a love nymph can only die if murdered or if the love of the couple dies, it's making some couples start to fight. (End game, the BC is kidnapping them hoping to cause problems or if they are lucky gather enough love nymphs on their side to use the powers to sway people's feelings towards the BC in general. Could use a bit of work before I do this one.)
19 (Should be 25 though, he didn't age for 6 years while with Circe)

His History Before Camp
Once upon a time, oh around the year 1988, Eros was partying it up in Miami and met a beautiful young woman by the name of Jane Caldwell, a lead singer in an up-and-coming local band that had high hopes for a record deal someday. After a few weeks of courting her, he left and moved on, but come to find out; she was pregnant with his child. She struggled on, putting her singing dreams on hold to care for her child. By the time the child was born, the guitarist in the band had fallen head over heels in love with Jane, and they married to raise Holden together.
For a couple of years they put their band on hold, but with a new drummer in their ranks, they started playing around locally. So this was how Holden was raised, being dragged around, to location after location, while his parents played. This went on for years, their parents became fairly well known with a small fan base, but had yet to really hit it big. At 12 Holden experienced his first hellhound attack, which is when a satyr made itself known and with its help, they were able to kill the hellhound. His mother took news of him being a demigod, somewhat well surprisingly, though really the idea of having him at a camp during all his breaks, so she could be free to tour with the band and not have to worry about him was quite appealing.
From 12 to 16 he spent most of the time at either camp, in boarding school, or on the road with his parents. Tragedy struck at 16 when his mother was killed in a plane crash while on their way back home from doing a gig in California, a gig that would have led to a big record deal, had she not died. Kyle was too depressed to take care of Holden and didn't really care what he did or where he went, he gave him half the money from Jane's life insurance policy and basically told him to get lost. So for the next two years from 16 to 18 he spent more and more of his time at camp instead of school.
At 18, while on a quest, he met Circe, she was beautiful and he was instantly enamoured with her, and she him. Once the quest was done she asked if he'd come back to the island to be with her, he agreed and did actually go back. For returning to her, she made it so he wouldn't age, and for 4 years this worked out quite well for the both of them. That is until his flirty play boy ways got the better of him, and she caught him in bed with one of her nymph/servants. Outraged she wanted to kill him, but instead, she decided it would be more fun to see him suffer. She cursed him, so that he cannot feel touch, granted he can't feel pain either as a side effect but no touch. He's wandered around for the last few weeks, unsure of where to go or what to do, so he's made his way back at camp, hoping for a safe haven while he gets things figured out.

General & Misc Info
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.

A world without love
It's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all
