OLYMPIAN PARENT] Apollo, the god of light, prophecy, music, poetry, and medicine
CLAIM STATUS Claimed as of the Thursday of his second week at camp.

Anne West (Occupation: Interior designer) l An ordinary, everyday woman. An unexceptional and idle but caring mother. A liberator.

Zander had a tendency to get in trouble a lot. He was the kind of kid who usually didn't do his work in school. He tended to spend his time in class talking to friends, doodling, and brainstorming pranks to play on other people. Naturally, teachers weren't really too fond of him half the time. It didn't help that the monsters would constantly be messing with him and getting him expelled. He went to quite a few different schools, although his mother never seemed to mind it, in fact, she seemed to expect it. The constant need to find and start at a new school wasn't a chore for either of them. It was always easy for him to make friends at whatever school he went to, and he was quite the popular guy.

It was only to be expected that during sophomore year at a new school, he became friends with a group of people who seemed to do everything for the purpose of having fun. Zander was elated to be included, of course. Although some of the other kids at school described some of their ventures as insane, he thought the things they did were genius. In addition to pulling off the greatest tricks, they liked drinking, smoking, partying, and enjoying life as much as possible.
While Zander was in the initiation phase of the group, one of the junior boys, Max, kept an eye out for him and helped him out when he struggled. Max came to be his mentor, big brother, his best friend. The two boys were almost inseparable. For once, Zander was doing well in school and being careful because he did not want to get kicked out.

Max was involved in a head-on collision within the second week of summer break. Ironically, he hadn't been the drunk driver in that accident. Zander had been in the car behind him when the accident happened and he was the first out once they had fully processed what happened. Max and his girlfriend, who had been riding shotgun, were rushed to the hospital. Fortunately, she made it. Unfortunately, he did not.
Zander was distraught, wanting to forget but unable to while he still lived in the city where no matter what he did, all he could think was that Max was gone. His mother realized he needed a change of scenery in order to move on and drove him to Camp Half-Blood to train and start over once again. Camp Half-Blood was just what he needed.

Zander stands at 5'11" and has a lean, athletic build from regularly training and exercising. He has dyed dark blue hair that curls at the ends and is neither short nor long. It isn't particularly messy or neat, but it usually falls into the same place every day. His eyes are an expressive and dark brown, like wet paint, although he often wears sunglasses and hides them. He tends to smile often, usually without realizing that he is smiling. His left ear is pierced but he only ever wears the earring that Max gave him - a simple silver earring with a dragon on it.

His skin is tan and he has a fair share of scars - two pale scars on his jaw and below his ear, several scars on his fingers, and a medium sized scar on his lower abdomen. He often tends to have at least one bandaid stuck on him. He's usually dressed very casually - blue jeans, a t-shirt or hoodie, canvas sneakers with maybe a little doodle or a few graffiti letters painted on - nothing special. He has an affinity for carved necklaces and will wear assorted whale bone, jade, shell, and otherwise carved necklaces. You won't often see Zander dress up, but for special occasions, he will.

Zander is a nice guy with a wild streak. He's the type of person who just has a really relaxed personality. He doesn't take too many things seriously and generally has a lax, carefree view on the world. When other people make mistakes, he doesn't mind too much, usually giving others a second chance, and a third, and a fourth, and so on. He's lenient and easygoing. Betrayal doesn't affect him too much and he's quick to forgive others. For the most part, he doesn't seem to care much about what other people think of him. He's much more likely to get offended and angry if someone spouts slander about his friends or family. He usually keeps a cool head in tense situations and isn't likely to let his emotions affect his decisions in the heat of the moment.

He likes to have fun, although he doesn't disregard safety as he does. If he's in charge of planning a prank, he usually plans it out thoroughly and carefully. Zander isn't one for being careless or reckless. But that doesn't mean he is a complete killjoy, he is often spontaneous. He tends to be very rebellious, often going against anything that an authority figure may say. He does seem to have more respect for Chiron and his mother than he has for any other person of authority. Being an extremely loyal person, he has his own personal honour code that he will never violate. He will never snitch on or betray a friend, even if they betrayed him first. He's a proud and stubborn person - but only when it comes to his morals and ideals.

Arrogance is not an unfamiliar concept to him. While he isn't outright boastful, he isn't exactly the most modest person either. He tends to get crazy, often nearly impossible ideas. He likes to do things big. He tends to be cocky and to overestimate his own abilities. While he is intelligent to a certain degree, he is by no means a child of Athena. Although he is a friendly person by nature, that does not by any means imply that he is always nice, he is just as prone to having sour moods as the next person. Zander can be brutally honest, and he isn't afraid to hurt someone's feelings once in a while. He can often be too proud to say sorry but he usually cracks fairly soon and apologizes profusely. He's proud, for sure, but he knows at what point pride gets stupid.

Zander can also seem quite unstable at times. He's constantly trying to outdo himself and although it may seem like he's always relaxed and laid back, when it comes to training and the things that he tries to do, he accepts nothing less than perfection. He's a hard worker but he doesn't know his own limits and often overworks himself. When it comes to training, he is very disciplined because he wishes to be a strong and largely independent person. Losing Max was really hard on him. Although he doesn't keep people away completely, he doesn't usually let them get too close either. Although he tries not to think about Max, when he does, he usually gets reckless and does things without thinking them through. The times where he remembered Max were usually the result of some of his greatest - and most perilous - stunts.

When he does realize that what he's doing is reckless, he tries to do the stunt alone. Despite what others may think, Zander often does realize when his ideas are a bit too crazy, and when he does realize, he'll do them on his own. Often, he doesn't know why he does them, all he knows is that he feels compelled to do them. He doesn't like to endanger the people that he cares about. At times, it appears that he has a bit of a death wish. He seems to have little regard for his own life, he can be rather obsessed with the concept of being a hero. He's courageous, and fearless, and values others' lives at much higher than his own.

He is occasionally sarcastic but prefers to make different kinds of jokes. He can be charismatic and opinionated, although he is careful about the way that he presents those opinions. Zander doesn't unnecessarily hurt feelings, he would much rather see a person smile and laugh than anything else. He is a very sympathetic person and is also a good listener. He cares a lot for other people. He's very accepting and open-minded, taking people for what they are. He, himself, stands for what he believes in and doesn't let anyone try to change who he is. Zander has little tolerance for bullies and often tries to make them look stupid or provokes them - even if they're bigger than him.
HAMARTIA Zander thinks that he can handle things that are often too big for him.

Glazed chocolate donuts l A relatively plain donut by most people's standards, but Zander's favourite kind. His friends would often buy breakfast and they almost always got a dozen donuts with at least two glazed chocolate for Zander.
Eggnog l Christmas was always one of Zander's favourite holidays.
