Demigods were the children of Gods/Titans and humans and even nymphs and nature spirits. They possessed human souls and were vulnerable to old age and death like mortals; however, their godly blood allowed them to achieve feats not usually possible by most humans.

While most demigods were created much like regular mortals, children of Athena and Hecate were born a different way. In this way, Athena and Hecate remained virgin goddesses. While gods mostly only have one to two children with each of their consorts, there have been exceptions: Apollo and Acacallis, Harmonia or Cadmus and Dionysus and Ariadne (when she was a mortal). Most demigods learned to live and protect themselves against enemies and dangerous monsters. They lived in peace like regular mortals.

History

Demigods have been the resulted of countless unions between Gods and mortal beings.

Capabilities

A number of demigods were known to possess additional powers.

  • The demigod Heracles was said to have possessed incredible strength, far greater than any man. This strength allowed him to best Cerberus.
  • The demigod Orion was said to have been able to walk on water.
  • The demigod Phineus possessed the power of prophecy, allowing him to see into the future.

Given powers

Apart from powers given at birth, many demigods were granted certain abilities early or later on in life.

Trivia

Demigods are really known to be born from the union of many beings involving one god. They can be born from two gods (such as Orpheus: Apollo and the muse Calliope, or Acragas: Zeus and the Oceanid Asterope), a god and a nymph (Abas: Poseidon and Arethusa).
