'I don't know if she's completely unkillable,' he said, 'but she cannot be defeated by toilet seats. I can vouch for that. She wanted me to betray you guys, and I was like, „Pfft, right, I'm gonna listen to a face in the potty sludge.”

„Gaea?” Leo shook his head. „Isn't that Mother Nature? She's supposed to have, like, flowers in her hair and birds siging around her and deer and rabbits doing her laundry.”
„Leo, that's Snow White,” Piper said.
-Curse it, boy! – He snapped at Jason. – Didn't you leave some for me? I like a challange!
Leo got to his feet, breathing hard. He looked completely humiliated, his hands bleeding from clawing at the rocks.
– Yo, Coach Supergoat, whatever you are-I just fell down the freaking Grand Canyon! Stop asking for challenges!”
He held out his hand and studied his fingers. They were long and thin, not callused like the other Hephaestus campers'. Leo had never been the biggest or the strongest kid. He'd survived in tough neighborhoods, tough schools, tough foster homes by using his wits. He was the class clown, he court jester, because he'd learned early that if you cracked jokes and pretended you weren't scared, you usually didn't get beat up. Even the baddest gangster kids would tolerate you, keep you around for laughs. Plus, humor was a good way to hide the pain. And if that didn't work, there was always Plan B. Run away. Over and over.
„Half-Blood?” Piper was immediately on guard. She hated that word. She'd been called a half-blood too many times – Half Cherokee, half white – and it was never a compliment. „Is that some kind of bad jokes?”
„She means we're demigods,” Jason said. „Half god, half mortal.”
Annabeth looked back. „You seem to know a lot, Jason. But, yes, demigods. My mom is Athena, goddess of wisdom. Butch here the a son of Iris, the rainbow goddess.”
Leo choked. „Your mom is the rainbow goddess?”
„Got a problem with that?” Butch said.
„No, no.” Leo said. „Rainbows. Very macho.”
