Her History Before Camp
Giles Castle was a wealthy business person, fairly wealthy, he wouldn't take love into much consideration, for the fact that most woman tried to take his money. His perspective totally changed when he met Aphrodite. She approached him in the most nonchalant manner possible, at a social gathering, it took moments before he fell head over heels in love. He offered her a drink, to which she kindly declined. Feeling quite provoked, Giles took to courting her in a more flirtatious style. They talked throughout the party, and ended up departing, only to make plans to meet up the next day. They saw each other often, at least twice a week, if anything, this was love, and it was beautiful.
About a month after their meeting, Aphrodite discovered she was pregnant. Giles was ecstatic, beyond complete bliss, completely filled with happiness. In high contrast, Aphrodite felt otherwise, she wasn't completely depressed, just disappointed, like a bittersweet film, where everything's perfect until the ending. Of all the mortal men she's been with, she felt Giles was among the few that stood out, but it was time to depart.
She asked him if the name Jessamine was to his liking, overcome by bliss, he probably would've agreed to something absurd. After they named the child, she told him she'd be leaving after the child was born. Crushed, nodded and said a few understanding words, he felt strongly for her, he honestly did, though he couldn't keep her from going. As his favorite quote said, “If you love something set it free.”
A few years after Jessamine was born, Giles met Regina. Already more open about love since Aphrodite, Regina made her way into Giles' life quite easily. Already having bore two demigod daughters, by Ares, Regina brought a whirlwind of despair and pain into Jessamine's life, along with a sinister plan to murder Giles and take his money. She hired a hit-man to murder him, once the job was done, a sea of pain rushed through Jessamine's soul.
She grew up in the most cruel environment. Her older step-sisters were terribly rude, their mother even worse. Regina forced her to do a myriad of chores, tedious, tiresome tasks, but life got slightly better when she hit the age of twelve.
When Jessamine was eleven, and her older sisters were twelve, they were attacked by a pack of hellhounds on the way back from school. They were saved by a nearby group of questers, who highly recommended they visit camp. When they told Regina of the attack, she sent her children to train at camp during the summer, but kept Jessamine at home.
The abuse continues for a few more years, the sisters handling the monster attacks when they're home, but on one summer, she met a boy, a demigod son of Aelous, they became great friends, and when monsters came, he was always at her aid. The sisters ended up getting tired of camp, and stayed home at the age of 18.
While Jessamine endured her harsh lifestyle, her friend took to investigating her step-mother and ended up compiling enough evidence to put her in jail.
After Regina was put in jail, her father's money was left to Jessamine when she would become of age, so since the three now had nothing, they went to camp.
Children of Aphrodite can intoxicate people of the opposite gender with pheromones in order to get them to do their bidding; any attempt to use the person to harm anyone (including their own person) will break their control.
Children of Aphrodite can bring upon a state of ecstasy to another person, making them become dazed for a short time.
Children of Aphrodite can alter their appearance for short periods of time, the more they do to alter their appearance, and the longer they maintain the appearance, the more energy it drains.
Children of Aphrodite have a minor ability to sway a person’s feelings, causing them to feel a slight amount of love for another person; the final choice to act on the love is, however, out of their control.
Children of Aphrodite can infuse magic into their words and ‘charm-speak’ another into doing their will or revealing a secret to them; the person will remain under the control of the charm-speak for a few minutes or until control is relinquished, the longer the control is kept, the more energy it drains.
The ability to speak French as it is "the language of love"
General & Misc Info
The static of your arms, it is the catalyst
You're a chemical that burns there is nothing like this
It's the purest element but it's so volatile
An equation heaven sent, a drug for angels.
She was rather tortured as a child, but ever since the jailing of Regina, she's been sociable, to a small extent, though she's happy. She's a go-getter. She works for what she wants, as she worked all her life.
