The Amazons are a tribe of female warriors, who usually worshipped war gods and goddesses such as Ares, Athena, or Bellona. They are similar to the Hunters of Artemis, except they are allowed to get married and have relationships with men.
Percy Jackson, Hazel Levesque, and Frank Zhang go to the Amazon's compound/building on a request by Reyna to find her sister, Hylla. They are captured by the Amazons, who are found out to be running Amazon.com. They ship a variety of goods and objects, both mortal and immortal, through their networks. Their boyfriends help do the lifting and are forced to wear orange jumpsuits and collars. They also have captured Arion and have him in a cage. Amusingly, the Amazons are found to follow principles of their online store, like one-click ordering becoming the locks open with one click, and some Amazon guards read on small tablets that may be Amazon Kindles. The Amazons later arrive at Camp Jupiter, seemingly under Otrera's rule, but instead help the demigods fight the Giant's army. A number of Amazons (including Reyna's sister Hylla) attended the Feast of Fortuna after the battle.
