In case you didn’t know, Hazel Levesque is back in The Tyrant’s Tomb on 9/24. This child of the Big Three is so powerful that she tamed immortal horse Arion, and we can’t wait to read about her in Trials of Apollo volume 4! In preparation, let’s shine a spotlight on our favorite time-displaced demigod.
Running Out of Time
Thanks to Gaea’s machinations, Hazel died in 1942. Recently, Nico di Angelo, Hazel’s half-brother through Hades, pulled her back to life through the Doors of Death. It took a little while for her to adjust to modern times, but Hazel has done a remarkably good job. Not only is she an outstanding centurion, she’s also one of the only nonagenarian’s in the world who doesn’t need help setting up her iPhone.
Caught in Pluto’s Orbit
Before Hazel was born, her mother, Marie, made a risky gambit with Pluto. They fell in love and he granted her one wish: all the riches of the earth. As a result, Hazel was granted the ability to pull jewels out of the ground. The bad news? Anyone who buys them will suffer. Curse aside, Pluto cares for Hazel, even though she keeps him at a distance. It’s tough to forgive your father for dooming your mother and ruining your life . . . though a little extra money in the birthday card never hurts.
Meeting Your Heroes
Without much of a family left in the present day, Hazel had to rely on new friends at Camp Jupiter and Camp Half-Blood to fill the hole in her heart. She forged a sacred bond with the Heroes of Olympus and earned an immortal place history as one of the seven demigods responsible for defeating Gaea once and for all. Hazel and her crew became inseparable during their adventures—even though they spent almost as much time fighting each other as they did actual monsters.
Digging up the Past
Even while saving the world, Hazel found time to pursue her own happiness. She started a relationship with Frank Zhang, current Praetor of the Twelfth Legion at Camp Jupiter. With two smart, strong, and courageous parties involved, Frazel has been one of the more stable and reliable demigod relationships to date. In fact, it seems like nothing could come between these two.
Unless of course, a certain sun-god-turned-mortal-teenager asked Hazel to help him raid the tomb of an ancient evil Roman king who may still be alive and lusting for power. But what are the odds of that happening?
