Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Book 1): Rick Riordan
They arrived at the Acropolis, and Percy scouted the middle, but he was captured by Enceladus. He and Annabeth struggled as they were brought to Porphyrion, who proclaimed them as the blood of olympus. Percy tried to defend himself by using a geyser of water, but to no avail. Piper saved him from Enceladus when she stabbed him in the forehead, distracting him enough to drop him. Though his sword was lost, Percy was able to grab Porphyrion's spear and stab it into the ground, making him fall over. He then tried to get a sword out of his hair, but he swatted Percy into a column like a pesky fly. He managed to get up, but he was dazed and couldn't defend himself. Eventually, after the others arrived, he faced Thoon but couldn't realize that his nose was bleeding. Piper tried to warn him, but his blood spilled and Gaea woke. But suddenly, all of the Olympians and some other gods arrived due to the Athena Parthenos being returned, so Percy fought alongside Poseidon to defeat Otis and Ephialtes. After the victory, Percy gathered to discuss Gaea with the seven and the gods. He complained about his nosebleed that woke Gaea, but Athena told him to not blame himself. He also explained to Leo that Gaea can pop up wherever she wants.Mercedes: In The Chalice of the Gods, Percy has possession of Iris' staff Mercedes for a brief period of time after agreeing to cleanse it for the goddess in exchange for her help. Percy manages to use the staff himself briefly to help Grover before returning to it to Iris.

As for Percy, he trusted Piper and felt responsible for everyone on the ship, including Piper. In Rome, Piper comforted Percy when Annabeth went off on her own and reassured him that Annabeth would be fine, putting Charmspeak in her voice. Piper also saved Percy's life from being drowned by Hagno. In return, Percy saved Piper from Otis and Ephialtes. Percy also asked how Piper's arm was after the battle, and Piper said it wad good and that he and Jason did great in the battle. Piper was upset when Percy fell to Tartarus, but she knew it wasn't her fault. In The Son of Neptune, after failing to communicate with Annabeth, Percy leaves his mother a phone message letting her know he is safe. Moonlace: A flower that grows in the moonlight. It was given to Percy by Calypso. He planted it in a trough at his apartment to remember her.
Although Percy defeats Mrs. Dodds, when he reunites with his other classmates, no one remembers her. In response, Percy acts out and is expelled from school. Percy overhears a conversation between Mr. Brunner and his friend Grover regarding Percy’s impending future, so he seeks answers from Grover on the bus ride home. After the bus breaks down, Percy and Grover notice three old women across the street knitting. One of the women cuts a string, which Percy and Grover discuss as signifying death. Cryokinesis (limited): Percy can use cryokinesis to a small degree. He can manipulate frozen or icy water around him, as shown during his interrupted fight with Thalia in The Titan's Curse. A few days later, Reyna Ramírez-Arellano gave he and Annabeth the news that they could go to college and live out their lives in New Rome. Nico approached the two after he heard them cheer, and they told Nico the good news. Nico was happy and told them he was staying at Camp, which Percy was happy about. Nico then decided to clear the air with Percy, since they would be seeing each other often, and said he had a crush on him but he was over it. Percy was surprised, looking at Annabeth, then at Nico, and could barely get a word in, asking for clarification. Nico reassured him that it was cool and though he was cute, he wasn't his type, and bid the two goodbye to join Will Solace.
