This is a list of notable offspring of a deity with a mortal, in mythology and modern fiction. Such entities are sometimes referred to as demigods, although the term "demigod" can also refer to a minor deity, or great mortal hero with god-like valour and skills, who sometimes attains divine status after death.
Recently there was an FAQ about the mystical sorcerer powers, which was helpful and insightful but still leaving a lot to players to figure out. As an Epic player though I'm heavily confused still about demigods, Gods, and a player becoming one. There's a lot of questions on the table, and people may risk their accounts unknowingly (like Nathan for instance), when it's sort of confusing about what is happening exactly.
"The wait is over, demigods," Riordan said in a video announcing the series pickup. "I am thrilled to be the first to tell you that Percy Jackson and the Olympians is really, truly, and for sure coming to your screens."
Percy Jackson and Charles Beckendorf are on the same team for Capture the Flag, and the two war god cabins (Athena and Ares cabins) and the Aphrodite Cabin are on the other. Beckendorf, a son of Hephaestus, has a somewhat awkward conversation about girls (as he has a not-so-secret crush on Silena Beauregard for three years), and thinks Percy should ask Annabeth Chase to the fireworks. They set off into the woods and stumble on a huge Myrmekes anthill. Silena and Annabeth capture Percy while Beckendorf charges straight ahead into the ant swarm as he tries to take back a huge bronze dragon's head, but immediately is bitten in the leg and has acid spit in his face. Percy, Annabeth and Silena want to rescue him but they need help so they take the metal head along to try to find the rest of the body of the bronze dragon which was once one of the camp's defences against monsters before Thalia's Pine Tree. They finally get the monster started (a dragon with no wings) which is an automaton and get it to help Beckendorf. It blasts open the ants' nest and the ants all attack the dragon. Meanwhile, Percy, Annabeth, and Silena dart in the anthill through tunnels and chambers full of weapons, armor, and jewellery and all a manner of other magic items as they find and get Beckendorf back out. When they come out and start fleeing, Beckendorf saves the bronze dragon from being ripped apart by the thousands of Myrmekes by activating its' ultimate defence system which causes the dragon to blast arcs of blue electricity from all over its' entire body. After the demigods finish watching the dragon drive the remaining Myrmekes back into their anthill the dragon spots them and turns berserk on them. Percy distracts the dragon until Beckendorf could jump on the dragon's back and temporarily deactivates it. Silena is very relieved that Beckendorf is alive, and when he asks her to the fireworks, she gladly accepts the invitation. Once they get back to camp, it turns out the Capture the Flag Game has not ended yet, and Annabeth puts them in Capture the Flag Jail. Percy and Beckendorf protest, but they wouldn't listen and get ready to go back to the game. Before Annabeth leaves to go back to the front line to fight for her team, she asks Percy out to the Fourth of July Fireworks, the biggest dating event of the summer at Camp Half-Blood, but she quickly leaves before Percy could answer. Percy and Beckendorf share a few lines about girls and it is revealed that the girls won the game, before the story ends.
Demigods are a new set of unit tiers with their own bonuses and research, as well as building levels, heroes, VIP levels and power level for the empires with demigod power labeled as a star next to the empire power level. They are able to wipe out any number of tier 1-52 units (Normal, Strategic and Wild units) in one hit. 1 million demigods (even much less) is enough to kill units in numbers as much as 1 trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion plus troops in one hit. They retain old unit bonuses as well as their own level of bonuses. They are greatly feared in combat as their stats go up by 100. There are 6 tiers starting at 100× health attack and defense. A minimum of 1101 stronghold is required to train them (you need research to unlock demigod traps as well as have × 1000000 unlock demigod defense tree).

The term demigod in ancient Greek mythology refers to a person who was born to one mortal parent and one divine parent. In the stories of Greek mythology, it was not uncommon for the divine to descend into the mortal world and form relationships with humans. In fact, the king of the Gods, Zeus, is infamous for it. However, not all demigods have a divine parent as powerful and important as the ruler of Mount Olympus. The divine parent could be any of the twelve Olympians, as well as any of the countless minor gods of the Greek pantheon. Even spirits and nymphs could serve as the divine parent of a demigod. Those who were born as demigods were said to have powers beyond that of a normal mortal. It was these powers that allowed demigods to become heroes in Greek society.
A demigod is a term used in Greek mythology to describe a person with one divine parent and one human parent. The divine parent was not necessarily a major Olympian god but could be a lesser one, such as a nymph. These demigods were thought to have special abilities far beyond that of mere mortals. Consequently, many of the demigods of Greek myth were considered heroes in one way or another. Their stories have influenced countless generations of real historical figures and societies. For example, Alexander the Great believed he was a descendant of Zeus, the king of the Olympian gods. At a very young age, Alexander read Homer's epic poem the Iliad, which told the story of Achilles, a demigod discussed in more detail later. He became fascinated by the hero and kept a copy of the Iliad with him at all times throughout his life.
Demigods in Greek Mythology often rose to legendary fame. Many of these demigods remain well known even today, though not all can rise to the heights of the great Heracles. The following is a list of some of the more notable demigods.
Heracles, more commonly known today by his Roman name Hercules, is perhaps the most famous of demigods. Born of a union between Zeus and a mortal woman, Heracles would go on to become the greatest hero in all of Greek mythology. So great were his exploits that he would eventually be granted full divinity, becoming a minor god. Heracles' strengths came from his courage and super-human strength, and battle prowess. He is known for wearing a lion's skin and carrying a club as his favored weapon. He was not flawless, however, as his greatest weakness was his temper. This temper was often inflamed by a curse set upon him by Hera, goddess of marriage and wife of Zeus. Despite Heracles' name meaning 'glory to Hera,' she was his greatest enemy. Hera often held Zeus' demigod children in contempt, but Heracles was the one she hated above all. It was Hera who caused Heracles to fly into madness, killing his wife Megara and their children. It is for this crime, that Heracles was given his famous twelve labors as penance. These twelve labors were:
Theseus is also among the more famous Greek demigods. He was the son of Poseidon, god of the Sea, and a mortal woman by the name of Aethra. Theseus was known to be both strong of mind and of body and is most famous for slaying the Minotaur. This Minotaur, a monster that was half-man, half-bull, dwelled in Daedalus' unnavigable Labyrinth. Legend has it that Athens sent seven men and seven women every year to the island of Crete to be sacrificed to Minotaur. One year, Theseus volunteered to be a tribute with the aim of killing the Minotaur. While in Crete he won the affections of Princess Ariadne, who gifted him with a magical string that he could use to escape the labyrinth. He successfully killed the Minotaur and used the string to follow his trail back out of the Labyrinth.
In ancient Greek Mythology, demigods were those born to one mortal parent and one divine parent. This divine parent could be one of the twelve Olympians, one of the minor gods, or even spirits and nymphs. Their divine parentage often afforded demigods supernatural powers that then enabled them to become great heroes. The most well-known demigod is Heracles (Hercules), son of Zeus. Heracles is famous for his triumph over the twelve labors which were assigned to him as penance after Hera cursed him with a madness that caused him to kill his wife and children. These labors included exploits such as killing the Nemean Lion and the Hydra of Lerna.
Achilles, the hero of the Trojan War, is another well-known demigod. His mother, a Sea Nymph, dipped all of him but his heel into the River Styx, making him almost completely invincible. However, his heel would be his downfall, as he was slain in the final battle of the war by the Trojan Prince, Paris, who shot Achilles through the heel with an arrow. Other famous demigods include Perseus, who slew the monster Medusa, and Theseus who outwitted Daedalus' Labyrinth and killed the Minotaur. 2b1af7f3a8
