It’s clear that Lavinia is emerging as a new fan-favorite, thanks to her pink hair, insider knowledge of Camp Jupiter, and connection to nature spirits. We love her too! Here’s why.
Dance runs in the family
Being the daughter of Terpsichore, the muse most likely to steal Apollo’s spotlight, and ballet god Sergei Asimov, you can see how Lavinia might have all the grace and elegance of a prima ballerina. Turns out she prefers tap-dancing! But that makes a lot of sense when you think of her restlessness. Speaking of which—
She puts the H in ADHD
While most demigods have some form of ADHD, Lavinia’s a bundle of extreme energy. She’s always fiddling with her Star of David necklace, she pops her gum constantly, she’s in constant motion, always bouncing around. As fidgety as she is, all that energy is infectious. Even reading about her makes us want to dance . . . or fight zombies.
Such a sweet weapon. It’s a Roman crossbow and Lavinia uses it well. She saves the day on more than one occasion. You would think this would make archery with a bow and arrow easier for her, but we can all agree that the manubalista makes a statement. Especially when she looks so great carrying it slung over her shoulder like that.
She clearly appreciates what he brings to Camp Jupiter, calling the troops to order on his behalf when necessary. She also loves slugging him in the arm. It’s just that kind of roughhouse respect she shows for our hero that makes her extra endearing and amusing.
Watch out for Poison Oak
Not the itch-inducing vine, but the dryad. Only because if you find her, you’re likely to find Lavinia nearby. Our pink-haired Centurion has a crush . . . and we’re here for it.
