Alabaster C. Torrington is a Greek demigod son of Hecate, who appears in a short story in The Demigod Diaries. He fought on the side of Kronos, during the Second Olympian War, and led his half-brothers and sisters.
Nothing is known of Alabaster's childhood, but he revealed that he was the leader of the the second Titanomachy, the war between the gods and the Titans. When Kronos lost, Alabaster urged his mother to keep fighting, which earned him the ire of the victorious Olympians. Hecate was offered a deal to rejoin the Olympian side as part of the promise to Percy Jackson to offer the forces of Kronos a general amnesty, and intimated that if she did not, they would destroy Alabaster. Hecate accepted the offer, not wanting more of her children to die, and Alabaster was exiled so he could not corrupt the other children of Hecate.
Son of MagicEdit
Since then, he had been on the run from a monster named Lamia, whom he later learns is another child of Hecate, and the monster who originally crafted the spell that allows monsters to detect half-bloods, as revenge against Hera for murdering her children. Despite how many times he killed her, Alabaster found that he could not destroy Lamia as she kept being resurrected by Gaea. He sought the help of his mother, Hecate, who refused to get involved with her children as she didn't want either of them to die, and then sought out the help of Dr. Howard Claymore, a renowned doctor known for his work on researching the afterlife.
Talented at magic and being reasonably powerful, Alabaster crafted numerous enchantments for himself, including multiple defensive barriers around his place of residence, and crafting for himself Mistforms of a father and an Imperial Gold sword. When Claymore accidentally led Lamia to his house, Alabaster prepared to fight her and protect him. Inadvertently, Claymore gave Alabaster an idea during the fight as to how to defeat Lamia permanently, and led him back into the house to find the appropriate spell. Unfortunately, Lamia reformed quicker than they imagined, and held Claymore hostage. She then burned the book that contained the spell, but before it could be entirely destroyed, Claymore sacrificed himself so that there would be nothing stopping Alabaster using the spell. Before he could do so, Hecate intervened, transporting Alabaster away before he could use the spell, and returning the soul of Claymore in a Mist-form body to be his companion.
Hecate explained to Claymore that Lamia is unlikely to pursue Alabaster for the moment, because of the power of the spell he has in his possession. The spell he found would have bound her to the earth as black sand as opposed to sending her essence to Tartarus, meaning that she would never reform for eternity. Not wanting this to happen to one of her children, Hecate separated the two, and trusted that Lamia would have the sense not to pursue Alabaster until she had found a way to counter this spell.
Alabaster is a calculating boy with a great deal of past hurt and a chip on his shoulder. Scathing of the Olympians, who he thinks of as a sort of "Divine Mafia", he views them as selfish and bullying, and those who follow them as blind. He was eager to continue the war with the Olympians even after the 'death' of Kronos, but was left without allies when the gods banished him as part of their deal with Hecate not to destroy him, as long as she forms an alliance.
Heroic in his own right, he was not willing to allow Claymore to die at Lamia's hand, considering it his duty to protect him.
Alabaster is described as a tall teenager with brown hair and green eyes with bags underneath them. He also has a freckled face and his body has a lanky build to it. He wears clothes with protective runes scribbled on them and a bullet-proof vest.
- ADHD: As a demigod he has natural battle reflexes.
- Dyslexia: He is 'hard-wired' to read Ancient Greek rather then modern English.
- Swordsmanship: He is skilled in sword fighting, using an Imperial Gold blade.
- Mystiokinesis: He is capable of performing powerful spells. Using this ability he inscribes runes of power on his clothes, using them for protection.
- Mist Control: As a child of Hecate he can control the Mist. This ability means he is able to use the Mist to alter mortals memories and perceptions, also he can use it to summon a 'mistform' and his Imperial Gold Sword.
- Alabaster is the only known Greek demigod who uses an Imperial Gold weapon, as Imperial Gold is mostly used by Roman demigods (except for Chrysaor, who had a sword made of it for supposedly "A Few Millenia" as of The Mark of Athena, although he called his sword "Enchanted Gold").
- It is said that Alabaster is Hecate's most powerful child.
