You said you needed some dudes, so here you go! :D
Name- Ashton Winters
Birthday- December 31st.
Personality- He's a quiet and secluded person at first look, but when you get to know him he turns into a sarcastic loudmouth with some pretty funny jokes up his sleeve. He doesn't trust people easily and sometimes has a bad temper when it comes to enemies, but overall he's a laid back kind of guy. He's got that smooth criminal aura, and has a way with words.
History- He spent time traveling with his mother in the Circus before he got attacked by a cyclops, disguised as one of the elephants by the Mist. a few days after he turned thirteen. He was on the run for a while until a satyr found him and led him to Camp.
Godly parent (If they have one) - Hades
Mortal parent/family- His mom, Penelope Winters, was an animal trainer in the circus. She told him to run away because she knew it wasn't safe with her. He hasn't heard from her since.
Hair color/style- His hair is dark brown, appears black, and sweeps across his forehead neatly.
Eye color- His eyes are dark brown as well.
Height/weight- 6'0, 150 pounds.
fatal flaw- He holds grudges, kinda like Nico.
Talents- He's an excellent sword fighter, one of the best at camp. Some of the campers are wary of him. They think he's an enemy spy since he doesn't talk much, but is fluent in swordsmanship even in his first week at camp. (Another reason why he stays away from the other campers).
Likes- He likes the nighttime (he often goes on walks during the night, but is so sneaky the harpies never even detect him). he also enjoys listening to music, and he likes to take naps all the time.
Dislike- He hates the ocean and heights, anything cold and wet like rain.
Romance (Bi sexual and gay are also options here)- Yeah sure. Maybe with Lexi? :D
Anything else- He doesn't dress like the typical Hades kid. He dresses in regular jeans and Camp shirt, sometimes with a sweatshirt, but no cliche leather jackets or skinny jeans or anything. He's not emo xD

Yay! My character got in! You know what's weird? in almost EVERY OC-submitting story I've seen, the author says he or she doesn't have enough guys...Wonder why that is?
| on the backs of angels chapter 1 . 11/23/2011
Name- Samuel Freebird
Nickname- Sam, or 'Little Bird' (But he hates that. Only the Hermes Cabin, and the Apollo cabin can get away with calling him that.)
Weapon- A bow; it's wooden inlaid with gold sun designs. Celestial bronze arrows. Named 'Light', or in Greek, 'Fos'.
Birthday- Dec. 23
Personality- Sam is alive for fun. If he was to have one dislike in the world, that would definitely be rain, because the clouds cover up the sun, and the thump of it when it hits the ground has no rhythm, taking away everything he could possibly love about anything. He tends to be on the happier side of everything (what am I talking about? He's ALWAYS on the happier side of things), and loves anything that happens under the sun. He's quick to forgive and forget, and if he is holding a grudge against you, you probably killed one of his siblings, or the rest of his family. Of course, if you did that, you'd already be dead, so it doesn't matter. . . He's a little picky, and has his preferences towards people and food, but accepts everything the way it is and really, really just wants to have fun. So, naturally, when Percy leaves the camp, he's heartbroken, because no one wants to have fun anymore! Also, when anyone digs into his past, he closes up, but that's the only secret you will ever see him keeping. He is a total open book, and there's no secret he can keep, so watch out if you give him a secret! If anyone asks about it, it's over the whole camp in minutes. Possibly seconds.
History- When Sam was seven, his mother got him an archery set (bow, arrows, target) and taught him how to use it, her having done some archery in the past. Once, his stepfather was watching them, and one of Sam's arrows went astray. It hit his stepfather in the face, and blinded him in one eye. The stepfather brought the case to court, but Sam's mother claimed in front of the judges that it was her, and not Sam that shot the arrow, and so she was sent to jail for attempt of murder, and hasn't gotten out yet. Sam feels horrible about it, and has never told anyone, but he suspects that Rachel's figured it out. After that, his stepfather began to grow cold, and mean, slightly abusive, so he ran away at age eight from his house in New Hampshire and went North, but was found by a satyr after taking out a heavily armed mortal police with nothing more than a bow, and winding up on the news. The satyr recognized him as a child of Apollo, and got him out of trouble and to Camp Half-Blood.
Godly parent (If they have one) - Apollo
Mortal parent/family- His mother, Teressa Freebird, who's in jail, but was an amazingly kind woman. His stepfather, Marcus Freebird, who used to be nice to Sam, until he lost his eye, when he turned mean and abusive.
Hair color/style- Brown with sun-streaks, flops over, but is short enough so that it doesn't develop the inevitable 'Beiber' look.
Eye color- Light, happy brown.
Height/weight- 5' 5"/I dunno
fatal flaw- Can't keep a secret to save his (or anyone else's) life.
Talents- Archery, singing, guitar.
Likes- Sunny days, archery, music, anything except for what's in dislikes.
Dislike- Rainy days. Anytime the sun is not out.
Romance (Bi sexual and gay are also options here)- Um, he considered possibly liking a guy once, but has TOTALLY gotten over that, and is now strait, and would probably be a romance person. Maybe with Silfer, or Jillian?
Anything else- Nope, can't think of anything! Cool idea for a story, though.
