Annabeth Chase is one of the main protagonists in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus series. She is a Greek demigod daughter of Athena and Frederick Chase and is currently the girlfriend of Percy Jackson. She is also the head counselor of Athena's Cabin and the architect of Mount Olympus. She is portrayed by Alexandra Daddario in the film version of The Lightning Thief and will reprise her role in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
Annabeth's father, Frederick Chase, met Athena, the goddess of wisdom, war, and handicrafts, while he was studying history at Harvard. Athena helped him get through his studies and, consequently, they fell in love. Shortly after, in 1993, as a gift to Frederick, Athena sent him Annabeth. She appeared on Frederick's doorstep in a golden cradle carried down from Olympus by Zephyrus, the west wind. She was considered a "brain child" like all other children of Athena. However, her father asked Athena to take Annabeth to Olympus and raise her there, as he didn't see Annabeth as a gift the way Athena did. Athena refused and told him that heroes were supposed to be raised by their mortal parents and not their godly ones. In the end, he had no choice but to take her in and care for her as well as he could.
|“||Monsters attacked. We argued. Monsters attacked. We argued.||”|
–-Annabeth Chase, talking about her stepmother, in The Lightning Thief
When Annabeth was five, her father got married. He and his wife had two kids together, Matthew and Bobby Chase. Because Annabeth was a demigod, her family was constantly being attacked by monsters, causing constant fighting between Annabeth and her parents, as they felt that she was always putting them in danger. When she was little, she used to be attacked, bitten and covered in cobwebs by spiders at night, and she would scream for her father but her step-mom thought she was making it up and refused to call her father because whenever her step-mom came into the room, the spiders would hide away and by the time she got dressed each morning, the bites and cobwebs faded. As a result, Annabeth felt that her step-mom thought that she was a freak, so she ran away from home at age seven because she believed that she was not wanted by her family members. She then fought monsters with the guidance of her mother, Athena, for a few months, using only a mortal hammer. Annabeth was later found by a son of Hermes, Luke Castellan, and a daughter of Zeus, Thalia Grace. When they found her she was hiding under a sheet of corrugated iron. She then tried to attack them with a hammer, but Luke grabbed her wrist and knocked it out of her hand. After being able to befriend her, Luke gave her a celestial bronze knife and said that only a clever warrior could use knives like this one. They traveled many places together until they were brought to camp by Grover Underwood, a satyr. She never wanted to go back home and considers Camp Half-Blood her home since she has lived there for most of her life, starting from seven years old. Therefore, she is one of the youngest to ever join Camp Half-Blood.
Meeting Thalia Grace and Luke CastellanEditA seven year old Annabeth was hiding under a sheet of corrugated iron in Richmond Ironworks in the same alley Thalia Grace and Luke Castellan were hiding in after escaping the house of monsters. After escaping, Thalia and Luke heard a noise coming from it and investigated the sound. After removing the sheet of iron, Annabeth ran toward Luke with a hammer and almost brained him with it, thinking he was a monster. Upon finding that Annabeth was a demigod, Luke and Thalia agreed that she could run away with them and Luke promised that he wouldn't let anything hurt her and they would become a better family than her old family. Luke gave Annabeth a bronze knife so she would be able to protect herself with something better than a hammer for monster slaying. Together, they were on the run, fighting monsters and making hideouts on the East coast, like the one Percy Jackson, Annabeth, and Tyson used in Jamestown, Virginia.
Eventually, they ran into Grover Underwood, a satyr, who took them to camp, but took some wrong turns on the way. One of these was into a Cyclops lair, and everyone but Annabeth was captured. Annabeth, after wandering around, found where the Cyclops was keeping Thalia, Luke and Grover. They were hanging over a pot. The Cyclops tried to lure Annabeth to him by imitating her dad's voice, but instead of going to the voice and getting captured as well, she stabbed it hard in the foot and untied Thalia, who then took care of everything else. That explained why Annabeth didn't trust Tyson, Percy's half-brother and who evidently is a Cyclops. Later in life, Annabeth starts to trust Tyson and they become good friends.
Despite their escape, they were delayed long enough for the pack of monsters pursuing them to catch up. They couldn't outrun them, so Thalia made the ultimate sacrifice; she said she would stay behind so Annabeth, Luke and Grover could make it safely to Half-Blood Hill. It is unknown whether she actually fought the monsters or not, but it is presumed that she fought them and was mortally wounded. Zeus, feeling sorry for his daughter, saved her life by turning her into a pine tree, later renamed Thalia's Pine Tree. This tree became a barrier for the camp against monsters and mortals unless they were invited over the barrier by someone from inside the camp.
Hearing the Prophecy Edit
When Annabeth was ten years old, she heard the Great Prophecy and continued to have nightmares about it. Every time a new camper came to Camp Half-Blood, Annabeth wondered if they were "the one", because Chiron told her that she would have a part to play in the Great Prophecy. Strangely, in The Sea of Monsters, she said that she did not know the whole prophecy, but she may have lied to Percy to protect him after being told by Chiron. She was thirteen at the time.

Annabeth first appears after Percy wakes up from his fight with the Minotaur the night before. She was nursing him back to health and quickly asked him if he knew anything about the Summer Solstice and what was stolen. However, Percy was still confused and didn't know what she was talking about. When someone knocked on the door, Annabeth filled Percy's mouth with a spoon full of pudding and Percy fell back to sleep. Percy didn't actually learn her name until Grover took Percy to see Mr. D and Chiron called Annabeth over and asked her to make sure his bunk in Cabin 11 was ready. Instead of commenting about how cool he was like he thought, Annabeth told Percy that he drooled in his sleep before heading off to the cabin. Percy then met her out front of Cabin 11 and saw she was reading an architecture book in Greek. When Percy entered the cabin, he was asked if he was regular or undetermined, to which Annabeth answered that he was undetermined. When Luke Castellan, the cabin leader, welcomed Percy, Annabeth began to blush but hid it when Percy noticed.
Annabeth quickly dragged Percy from the cabin and begins to get mad at him. She insults herself for thinking that Percy was the one she was waiting for and explains that any other demigod would have loved the chance to fight the Minotaur. She also explains to him how monsters never really die, as they will eventually reform in Tartarus. When Percy questions why he can't just pick a cabin, like one of the empty ones, which are Zeus' Cabin, Poseidon's Cabin, Hera's cabin, and Artemis' Cabin, she explains that the cabin depends on who the demigod's dad/mom is. When Percy says that his father is dead, Annabeth says he isn't dead or Percy wouldn't be at Camp Half-Blood. When Percy tries to deny this, Annabeth correctly guesses that Percy had been kicked out of a lot of schools, moved around a lot, he has Dyslexia, and most likely ADHD. Before she can go on, Clarisse La Rue interrupts and Annabeth introduces her. When she tries to initiate Percy into the camp, Percy gives Annabeth the Minotaur's horn, but he is quickly overpowered by Clarisse. Annabeth watched through her fingers as Clarisse almost dunked his head in the bathroom toilets, but Percy controlled the water to force Clarisse out the door. Annabeth was also soaked, but she wasn't forced out. She then commented that she wanted Percy on her team for Capture the Flag. She then showed him the rest of the camp before leaving to train and saying that she would ask Chiron to allow Percy to see the Oracle, showing interest in getting her own quest and having some knowledge of a possible war among the gods.
Later when talking to Luke about people saying he was Big Three material and Annabeth calling him the one she was waiting for, Luke said that Chiron was given a prophecy by the Oracle saying that Annabeth wouldn't be ready for a quest until a certain someone arrived at camp. He also mentioned that Annabeth acted like that to every new camper. Percy saw her later at dinner with the rest of Athena's Cabin. Percy from then on took Ancient Greek with Annabeth and learned other self-defense type classes. While the cabins prepared for Capture the Flag, Annabeth and two of her siblings came in with the banner of Athena as their flag, while Clarisse and her siblings came in with the banner of Ares.
During the game, Annabeth lead the blue team and used Percy as bait for Clarisse, knowing she would want revenge on him. After Percy managed to defeat Clarisse, Annabeth took off her invisibility cap to show she had been there. While Percy was annoyed at her for using him, she claimed she was about to jump in, but Percy managed to handle it on his own. When Annabeth notices the wound in his shoulder healing as he stood in the water, she quickly figures out that Percy is a son of Poseidon, but had assumed that Zeus would have been the one to break the oath. Before she can explain it to him, a hellhound attacked. Annabeth stepped in front of the monster, but it jumped over her to attack Percy. The hellhound was quickly defeated, but not before injuring Percy. Annabeth told the others to put Percy in the water, which quickly healed his wounds and Annabeth pointed out the symbol of Poseidon hovering above Percy's head.
Later, after Percy visits the Oracle and gets a prophecy, Chiron explains that the gods are on the brink of war because Zeus' Master Bolt had been stolen and is blaming Poseidon for it. When Grover Underwood volunteers to help in the quest, Annabeth quickly takes off her cap and volunteers as well, revealing she had heard the entire conversation. She claims that while Athena and Poseidon aren't on the best of terms, she is the best person for preventing him from messing up, calling Percy "Seaweed Brain." The next morning, Annabeth got ready for the quest by bringing her cap, her knife, and was given some supplies by the camp before leaving for New York City. Before leaving, Luke gave Percy a pair of winged shoes and gave Annabeth a goodbye hug, which almost made her pass out.
After being driven into the city by Argus, they are quickly found by the Furies while taking a bus to New Jersey. Annabeth used her cap to hide Percy from them in hopes that Percy's smell will hide her and Grover's sent. Percy snuck past them, but the Furies went after Annabeth, violently demanding to know where "it" is. Percy hit the brakes and the bus crashes due to the fighting between the demigods and the Furies. The three escape and Annabeth wonders what the it the Furies wanted was, as if they were talking about Percy, they would have said he. However, being tired and without a ride, they find their way to Aunty Em's Gnome Emporium. While Percy and Grover quickly fall for Aunty Em's kindness, Annabeth becomes suspicious and soon realizes that the old woman is Medusa moments before they were all turned to stone. Annabeth becomes extremely worried because it was her mother that turned her into a monster because she was caught kissing Poseidon in one of her temples. She instantly warned them to look away before turning invisible and pushing Grover and Percy over. During the fight, Annabeth convinces Percy to kill her as she knows he has the better weapon and because Medusa hates her and her mother, Athena. After Percy killed Medusa, Annabeth walked up to it and covered the head in a dark veil so they wouldn't see it's eyes. Percy then ships Medusa's Head to Mount Olympus.
While camping in the woods, Percy figures out that Grover was the satyr that tried to get Annabeth, Thalia, and Luke back safely, but ultimately failed. The next morning, Annabeth woke Percy up and made the group breakfast, while Grover found a lost dog that they could return for the reward money, allowing them to buy train tickets to St. Louis, Missouri. During the trip, Annabeth asked Percy (who had a dream about Kronos) who he won't help, as he said that in his sleep. Percy explained the dream, and Annabeth began to have doubts that Hades was the one that took the Master Bolt as everyone had originally thought. She also told him he couldn't make deals with Hades, but Percy asked her what would happen if Hades took her father. This angers Annabeth and she explodes, saying she would leave her dad to rot and revealing a little about her past in the process, saying she hated her family, despite keeping her dad's ring. However, as soon as she sees the Gateway Arch, she brightens up and reveals that she hopes to one day become an architect and building something that would last for a thousand years. Once in the station, Annabeth took Percy and Grover to the Gateway Arch and got to the top shortly before closing time. While at the top, a large woman with a small dog asked about their parents, to which Annabeth told her that they were scared of heights. Shortly after, Annabeth went downstairs with Grover and waited for Percy, not knowing the danger he was in. They watched as Percy fell from the arch in an explosion and landed in the nearby river. Annabeth and Grover ran to him, with Annabeth trying to look mad, but really being relieved that he was not harmed.
After getting on a train out of the city, they arrive in Denver and Annabeth showed Percy how to Iris Message. They get a hold of Luke instead of Chiron, and he informs them that the camp is becoming a battle field with cabins picking sides in an upcoming war. Annabeth on the other hand messes with her hair and tried to make herself look prettier for Luke, however the connection is cut short soon after. While at a diner, Ares appeared before them and offers them a ride west if they get something for him in Waterland. Percy and Annabeth are reluctant because the item is in the Thrill Ride O' Love and neither feel comfortable. Once they are inside, a trap made by Hephaestus is activated and hundreds of thousands of metal spiders flood the room and Annabeth is paralyzed with fear. Percy floods the room with water from the pipes and they sail toward the exit, but the gate is closed. Annabeth uses her brain to figure out when the best time to jump was and they make it out safely (Percy noting that if they jumped when he thought they should, they would have smashed against the gate). When they return the item, Ares allows them to climb into the back of a Kindness International truck, which transported animals.
While in the truck, the find that Kindness International are smuggling animals and they try their best to help the animals. Annabeth and Grover tell Percy the full story of how they made it to camp and how Thalia sacrificed herself. Annabeth also says that she doesn't blame Grover for what happened and neither did Thalia, also calling him the bravest satyr she knew. After Grover fell asleep, Annabeth talks about the beads on her necklace and eventually opened up about her rocky relationship with her father, explaining the ring on it. When Percy asked her if she would side with her mother if she went to war against Poseidon like they did during the Trojan War, Annabeth told him that she would side with him as they are friends. The next morning when Maurice went to go feed the animals, Annabeth put on her cap and started banging on the outside, distracting the driver long enough for Percy and Grover to free the animals.
While in Las Vegas, they eventually arrive at the Lotus Hotel and Casino where they are given key cards and decide to have spend the night and play some games while they're there. Annabeth gets really into an architecture game and can't bring herself to pull herself away, even after Percy tells her it is a trap. She doesn't budge until the word "spider" is said and she comes to her senses.
Once arriving in Los Angeles, Annabeth, Percy, and Grover are chased into Crusty's Water Bed Palace, where Annabeth and Grover are quickly trapped by a monster called Procrustes, who stretches out anyone to the exact length of the bed. While Annabeth pleads for Percy to help her, he is forced to outsmart the monster and eventually traps him in one of his own beds, freeing Annabeth in the process. Percy then grabs the address from Procrustes' address book and the three head to DOA Recording Studios, the entrance to the Underworld.
Once reaching the Underworld, they couldn't think of a way to get to Hades without passing Cerberus, until Annabeth pulled out a rubber ball and began to play fetch with him and claiming she used to train a Doberman. She played fetch long enough for Percy and Grover to pass by and then followed them telling Cerberus she would play with him again sometime and he whined as she left. After passing the large dog, Grover's shoes began to act up and began pulling him toward Tartarus, the deepest part of the Underworld. While thinking he was only messing around, Annabeth quickly jumped to action along with Percy as they pulled him. Annabeth suggested they untie the shoes, but Grover was only saved when his fake feet fell off and the shoes flew into the pit. Annabeth, knowing what the pit was suggested they all back away as soon as possible.
When they arrived at Hades' Palace, Annabeth was respectful to Hades and informed him of a war approaching among the gods, but Percy quickly asked for the Master Bolt back from him. Hades erupts into anger at this, claiming that Percy not only took the Master Bolt, but his Helm of Darkness as well. Annabeth tried her best to figure out what all this meant, but failed to see the connections. When the Master Bolt appeared in Percy's backpack, Annabeth becomes even more confused. Percy pulled out three pearls that his father had given him to escape the Underworld, and Annabeth offered to stay so Sally Jackson could go. Eventually, Grover, Annabeth, and Percy returned, leaving Percy's mom behind. Once back on the surface, Annabeth apologizes for leaving Sally behind.
However, Ares soon appeared and revealed that he was the one that hid the bolt in the backpack, and the one that wanted the gods to go to war. Percy challenged Ares to a fight, much to Annabeth's protests, but she gave him her necklace for luck. Annabeth watched the battle with Grover and warned them when policemen had arrived, but Ares caused a wall of fire to appear in front of them. When Percy managed to get Ares to retreat, Annabeth warned Percy not to look at Ares' Divine Form. After taking the Helm of Darkness from Ares and giving it to the Furies, Annabeth and Percy both figured out what was in the pit.
The three flew back to New York and Percy sent Annabeth and Grover back to Camp Half-Blood to tell Chiron what had happened and because if the gods didn't believe Percy's story, he wanted to keep them away from danger. After the Master Bolt was returned to Mount Olympus and all seemed well, Percy returned to camp and celebrated a successful quest with Annabeth and Grover around the campfire. They even set up a picnic as Grover left to go search for the lost god Pan, with Annabeth giving him a goodbye hug. However, when Percy was poisoned by Luke and revealed himself to be an agent of Kronos, Percy woke up the next morning in the Big House with Annabeth tending to him once again, mirroring Percy's first arrival at camp. He explained what had happened with Luke, causing Annabeth to become shocked and then angry at him, cursing his name. Annabeth then spends her time helping Percy recover and admits that she will spend a year with her dad, as she had sent a letter to him shortly after arriving at camp. Percy and Annabeth then say their goodbyes, calling the other Wise Girl and Seaweed Brain respectively.

|Annabeth returned once again to help Percy save the camp, though this time as friends, the previous tension between them as a result of their parentage was resolved by Percy's offer to put their differences aside. Annabeth arrives at Percy's new school to tell him what has happened at camp, but is wearing her cap so no one notices her. It is also found out that Percy carries around a picture of her which makes some of the other kids pick on him. During gym, a group of Laistrygonians attack Percy, but Percy along with Tyson fight them off and Annabeth stabs the last on the back making her presence known. She then takes Percy and Tyson (reluctantly) with her to camp using the Gray Sisters' Taxi. While at camp, Annabeth and Percy decide to work together to make a chariot (like their parents) for the upcoming Chariot Race, but because of Annabeth's fear of Tyson, they have a fight and work on their own chariots. They do make up after an attack by some Stymphalian Birds because Thalia's tree is dying and the borders are weakening. After a dream Percy has, Annabeth realizes that Grover found the Golden Fleece and ask Tantalus for a quest to get it, but he gives the quest to Clarisse. However, that night they sneak aboard a ship passing by the camp (with some help from Hermes and Poseidon) to search for the fleece themselves.
The ship they arrive on is the Princess Andromeda. A monster ship with Luke on it and they are forced to escape. Annabeth leads them to an old hideout used by her, Luke, and Thalia. She also tells Percy after sending Tyson outside why she hates cyclopes, until Tyson comes back with a hydra nearby. After battling the hydra with little effect, Clarisse arrives and takes them with her to the Sea of Monsters. After entering the sea, Percy and Annabeth are split up from everyone else when Clarisse's submarine explodes and arrive at C.C.'s Spa and Resort. While Annabeth is given a full makeover, Percy is turned into a guinea pig. Annabeth outsmarts Circe and uses one of Hermes' multivitamins to turn Percy back and make them immune to magic for a short time. She then puts her knife to Circe's neck, and threatens her. They escape using Blackbeard's ship. Annabeth hears the Sirens' song while on the boat, and although she'd convinced Percy to tie her to the mast, he forgot to disarm her (celestial bronze knife) and she got hypnotized by the song. It is confirmed that her fatal flaw is hubris (pride), being a child of Athena.
They eventually make it to Polyphemus' island where Grover and Clarisse are being held captive (and finding Tyson along the way). In order to provide a distraction, she puts on her invisible Yankees cap and tells the cyclops she is "Nobody," angering him to no end as he smashes rocks and stops around, eventually capturing her. She is freed when Percy tells Polyphemus he is "Nobody," since Annabeth was a girl. He lets he go and Percy manages to defeat his half brother and take the fleece. They all eventually sail out of the Sea of Monsters and Annabeth and Percy give Clarisse enough money for a plane ticket back to camp. After she leaves, they are attacked by Luke for the fleece, but when he finds out they don't have it, Annabeth is forced to watch Luke and Percy fight each other. Percy manages to trick Luke into revealing he poisoned Thalia's Tree by sending an Iris Message to Camp Half-Blood behind Luke and getting him to admit he did it, proving that Chiron was innocent. Chiron and the Party Ponies come to their rescue and they return to camp.
Annabeth and Percy teamed up to win the chariot race waged between the cabins of the camp. Following their victory, Annabeth's perpetual facade of calm cracked slightly when she kissed Percy on the cheek. Afterward, while Annabeth is doing patrol for the camp, the fleece's magic works too well, causing Thalia's pine tree to 'give back' Thalia's spirit, causing Thalia to come back to life (though she wasn't really dead).

Annabeth, Percy, and Thalia enter a school looking for two demigods that Grover had been looking after. They are stopped in a hallway by Dr. Thorn and Ms. Gottschalk, but Thalia uses the Mist to convince them they were students. He lets them pass and the three go to the dance looking for the demigods and Grover. Annabeth and Percy start dancing and Annabeth says she has something very important to tell him, but are interrupted when Nico and Bianca disappear. Annabeth goes to get Thalia and Grover while Percy rushes off to find the demigods only to be captured. When Annabeth and Thalia attack Dr. Thorn, the Hunters arrive to help fight it off. During the fight, Annabeth jumps on Dr. Thorn's back to stab him, but they both end up going over a cliff and vanish. Artemis says she will track down Dr. Thorn as the Goddess of the Hunt and she ordered the Hunters to go to Camp Half-Blood. Percy has a dream that Annabeth sees Luke holding up the sky and pleading for Annabeth to take it from him, which she does and is now trapped. When he wakes up, Grover tells Percy that Annabeth was asked to join the hunters and that was what she wanted to talk to him about at the dance.
Later, Percy has another dream where Annabeth is still holding the sky and in order to trap Artemis, he tells her that if she doesn't take the sky from Annabeth, she will surely die from the weight. Artemis takes the sky and Annabeth falls to the ground and carried away by Luke who decides to use her as bait for the other demigods.The Oracle of Delphi gave one of her ever-cryptic prophecies, and off went Percy, Thalia, Grover, Bianca di Angelo (a young Hunter whom Percy, Annabeth and Thalia were attempting to recruit along with her brother Nico di Angelo when Annabeth was taken) and the Huntress, Zoë Nightshade, in pursuit of Artemis and Annabeth and the monster which Artemis was chasing after. Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty, convinced Percy that his love for Annabeth was worthwhile, though she also made it incredibly harder for them to fall in love. Though Percy was originally not included in the quest, Nico pleaded to him and convinced him to follow them to protect his sister, Bianca. He was seemingly unable to leave the fate of his best friend in the hands of others. After a prolonged quest, which included the loss of Bianca di Angelo in the Junkyard of the Gods battle to a prototype of Talos made by the forge god Hephaestus, the group arrived at the ruins of the Titans' palace, Mount Othrys in San Francisco, California, and found Annabeth, with a grey streak in her hair as a result of holding the sky and Artemis, who was struggling under the weight of the sky; both captives of Luke and Atlas.
Upon the re-imprisonment of the Titan General Atlas, the death of Zoë, and the apparent death of Luke (or so they thought, except Annabeth), Annabeth was saved by Percy and the others, along with her mortal father, Frederick Chase who attacked the monsters chasing the group using the celestial bronze bullets that he had made from things Annabeth had left behind when she ran away from home. Also, Annabeth's stepmother shows care for Annabeth in this book when she tells Percy that even though she knows that Annabeth is a demigod and can't live in San Francisco because of Mount Orthys, the Titan base camp, she still has a home with them and can come anytime she wants.

Annabeth is now 14 years old. She and Percy were supposed to go to the movies after his orientation day into his new school, Goode. However, their plans are interrupted when Percy blows up part of the school in a fight with some monsters, Kelli and Tammi, who were empousai in the forms of cheerleaders. Her possessiveness for Percy is revealed when she becomes annoyed at him after she finds him escaping with the mortal girl Rachel Elizabeth Dare. She has a fight with Percy and refuses to speak to him during the Gray Sisters' Taxi journey to Camp Half Blood. Once back at camp, Percy and Annabeth accidentally discover an entrance to the Labyrinth under the rock pile known as Zeus's Fist while on a camp game designed personally by Quintus who is discovered to be Daedalus later on, the inventor and the creator of the Labyrinth. She realizes that Luke can use this entrance to invade the camp at any moment unexpected. Annabeth leads the quest into the Labyrinth, fulfilling one of her many ambitions at last. While studying the Labyrinth, Percy walks in on her. Annabeth was frustrated and held out her arms so Percy could give her a hug. He remarks that her hair smelled like lemon soap.
Later, Annabeth descends into the Labyrinth with Percy, Grover, and Tyson (Percy's half brother and a very good cyclops) to find a way to stop Kronos' evil forces from invading the borders of Camp Half-Blood by searching for its inventor, Daedalus. The Oracle of Delphi gave her a prophecy which appears to have scared her and she refuses to say the last line. As they go into the Labyrinth, they face and fight many monsters. Annabeth faces a Sphinx and finds its riddles (which were actually factual questions) not challenging enough and an insult to her intellect. They escape the claws of the Sphinx and continue on to find Hephaestus in one of his many forges so he can tell them about where to find Daedalus and his workshop in the Labyrinth. Annabeth believes that Percy will die when Mount Saint Helens erupts but right before he goes in she kisses him for good luck.
Percy was instead marooned on the phantom island of Ogygia when he tried his best to fight the telekhines, half-dog half-monsters, who were perpetrating Hephaestus's once favorite of all of his many forges, where the sad but seductive Calypso resides. When Annabeth sees Percy return (while she is burning his shroud, believing him to be dead) she hugs him fiercely, but quickly lets go when she realizes she is making a big scene in front of all the other campers. When she finds out what happened to Percy after he tells her and Chiron in Chiron's office in the Big House, Annabeth angrily exits after guessing where he was stranded and obviously feeling jealous. Percy asks mortal Rachel Elizabeth Dare, much to Annabeth's dismay. Annabeth makes several offending remarks toward Rachel, who simply shrugs them off and after a long while, Annabeth accepts her as their guide. The three of them discover Luke, who has become Kronos' vessel. After the Battle of the Labyrinth from the entrance of the Labyrinth under Zeus's Fist in the woods, Luke and his army are forced back into the Labyrinth, leaving after causing many, but only two named, casualties.
Percy remembers his last conversation with Annabeth in a train of positive thoughts to think about something other than a poisonous wound he has.

Annabeth joins forces with the campers and goes to New York City to save Manhattan and Mount Olympus (over the Empire State Building) itself from Kronos' Titan army in the Battle of Manhattan. At one point, she takes a poisoned knife for Percy, that Ethan Nakamura was using to try to stab him. Even though she does know Percy was invincible, Annabeth jumps in the way and takes the stab, defenseless. It is later revealed that if she hadn't taken the dagger for Percy, he would have died, because his only weak spot, the small of his back, was Ethan's target though it is unknown how Ethan knew about the weak spot it or Ethan may have not been aiming for any spot in particular as he told Kronos. Percy gets Blackjack, his black pegasus, to fly her away, takes Kronos on, and is forced to retreat. When Percy checks on Annabeth, he decides to tell her where his Achilles heel is. Annabeth is the only person that knows where it is besides Percy. While Annabeth is resting because of the poisoned knife, she tells Percy that Luke had visited her before they went into the Labyrinth, explaining why Hermes, the messenger of the gods, the patron of thieves, and others, was mad at her for not saving Luke when she had the chance to, and she also states that Percy looks "cute" when he is worried. When it is discovered that Silena was the spy, Percy Jackson describes Annabeth looking as if "The world had just been pulled from underneath her feet."
Annabeth saves Percy and Olympus by finally realizing for whom the prophecy is truly meant for: Luke. She tells Percy to give Luke her knife (that was Luke's gift to her when she was seven) so he can stab himself, which would banish Kronos back to Tartarus though there is no evidence to where the spirit of Kronos went to after Luke sacrificed himself since they were up high above Manhattan in the Hall of the Gods in the Olympian gods' throne room on Olympus. Annabeth is rewarded by the gods (actually by her own mother Athena), now being able to fulfill her dream and design for the gods a new city on Olympus, as the old one was ruined by the battle (actually destroyed by Kronos when he invaded Olympus through the Empire State Building, entrance to Olympus). She is also allowed to design the new cabins at Camp Half-Blood.
She and Percy celebrate his 16th birthday privately, in the apparently empty dining pavilion of Camp Half-Blood. Percy attempts to tell her that he has strong feelings for her, but she is amused, up until the point he states that she is not making it easy for him to admit it. She laughs and warns him that she will never, ever make things easy for him, and that he should get used to it, wraps her arms around his neck, and kisses him. Percy said that it felt like his brain was melting through his body, and that he could have stayed like that forever, until Clarisse La Rue and several other nosy campers eavesdrop on the whole episode and throw Percy and Annabeth into the camp's canoe lake. However, Percy creates an air bubble deep under the surface of the lake, because he is a son of Poseidon, and they share, as Percy describes it, "the best underwater kiss of all time." At the end, Percy is relieved that Annabeth is staying in New York and they leave Camp Half-Blood together.

While celebrating their one month anniversary, Annabeth asked Percy what he had planned for their special dinner that night. Percy, who never remembered promising something like that, stalled for time just as Hermes arrived. Annabeth and Hermes get into a small fight, which is quickly broken up by Percy who drags Hermes into his delivery truck to talk. When they exit, Annabeth quickly figures out that someone stole Hermes' caduceus. Annabeth takes out her Video Shield and finds that the giant Cacus is in the meatpacking distract.
When Percy and her get there, they climb down a ladder into the sewers and find an underground cavern. There they meet Cacus and he tried to sell them watches and clothes, which Annabeth quickly notes are fakes. When Percy asked for the caduceus back, Cacus claims he will figure out how it works and become the god of traveling salesmen. Annabeth and Percy go on the attack, with Annabeth stabbing him in the back of the knee and Percy stabbing his leg. However, Cacus backs her and Percy into a corner, destroys her shield, and is about to turn her to stone when George and Martha turn into a cell phone. They escape the cavern when Percy calls thousands of gallons of New York sewage to him and it pushes them to the surface, with Annabeth cursing Percy the entire time.
Annabeth then comes up with a plan and runs to a crane, knowing how to operate it as she observed them on Olympus. Percy lures Cacus under the crane's large hook and Annabeth drops it on his head before picking him up and swinging him into the air, where Percy destroys him with the caduceus' Laser Mode. Percy and Annabeth then return the caduceus to Hermes, who is very grateful. As a reward, Hermes transports them to Paris for a special dinner. They night ends with Percy and Annabeth walking by the river and Annabeth wondering what Percy has planned for their two month anniversary, which makes Percy happy that she sees a future for them in a month.

Annabeth appears in a chariot pulled by pegasi with Butch, a demigod son of Iris, the carrier of messages through rainbow "Iris-messages" for the gods and the rainbow goddess, to pick up the three demigods Jason Grace, son of Jupiter, Piper McLean, daughter of Aphrodite, and Leo Valdez, the son of the forge god, Hephaestus. It is revealed she and Percy are still dating. Annabeth and Butch, went to the Grand Canyon in search for Percy, who has been missing for three days. Annabeth had been receiving visions from Hera, that a hero with one shoe, which she finds out is Jason, will solve her problems, which is finding Percy. She is also shown frustrated and worried with Percy's disappearance. Before leaving the Grand Canyon, Annabeth yells to the sky, "What do you want from me? What have you done with him?" Annabeth gives Piper a tour of Camp Half-Blood, also letting Piper choose her weapon Katoptris, then explaining that Piper's relationship with Jason at the Wilderness School was an illusion due to the Mist and wanting to give Piper a chance to break down privately when she realized the same thing, though she has been holding herself together as well, it is obvious that Annabeth is equally crushed at losing Percy so mysteriously.
When Jason is given his quest to rescue Hera from the capture of Polyphrion the giant, Annabeth refuses to accompany the quest group, partly because the prophecy states that children of Hephaestus, Jupiter/Zeus, and Aphrodite will go instead, and partly out of her own distaste for Hera. Instead, she uses the time they are gone to continue her search for Percy.
After the quest group returns and relates their findings — the rise of the giants, the attempted return of Gaea, and the fact that Jason was "exchanged" to the Greek Camp Half-Blood — Annabeth puts everything together and realizes, as Jason has, that Percy has been taken to the Roman Camp called Camp Jupiter as the corresponding half of the exchange. She vows to accompany Jason, Piper, and Leo when they journey there to retrieve him.

While Percy Jackson is running away from the gorgons, Stheno and Euryale, he sees San Francisco, which reminds him of Annabeth, the only person he can remember from his past. Also, when Percy talked to Lupa, she told him that if he completed his quest, he would see Annabeth again soon.
Before Percy goes on his quest to free Thanatos, he has a dream and sees Annabeth. She tells him to stay at Camp Jupiter because Tyson and Mrs. O'Leary are close by and are trying to find him. When Percy wakes up, he feels bad that he will have to ignore Annabeth and go on the quest anyway as the Roman campers need him. During his quest, Percy has flashes of memory about Annabeth, as when he looked at Mount Tam, he remembered the fight with Atlas and he told Frank and Hazel he had been their once looking for Annabeth. Later when looking for Ella in a library, he said Annabeth would like this place as it was quiet and filled with books. He later remembers that she loved architecture.
After completing the quest, Hera appears to Percy in his dream. She tells him that Annabeth will cause him trouble in the future. When Percy says that Annabeth is the person he most wants watching his back, Hera says "We shall see," and tells Percy that she will have a hard task ahead of her when he arrives in Rome and that she may not be up to it.
The next morning, Percy arrives in the Senate meeting to discuss the arrival of the Argo II, which they will allow to land. As he goes to meet the ship, he says he knows Annabeth is on board and this could be the best day of his life if everything went right.
|To see this text, hit the "Expand" link to the right.|
As Annabeth approaches Camp Jupiter on board the Argo II, she checks the ship to make sure that everything is set up, including the back-up plans to the back-up plans. She tries her best to keep Gleeson Hedge under control, while watching Piper McLean practice her lines for the meeting. When Piper repeats the line for the Romans to lay down their weapons, as the Greeks only wanted to talk, her Charmspeak almost causes Annabeth to lay down her knife, and have a chat. She also watches Leo Valdez fiddle with the controls of the Argo II.
While watching Jason Grace prepare for the meeting, she could not help but not trust Jason, as he always seems too perfect. She thinks maybe he would turn them in as prisoners once they landed and give the ship as a gift. Also, whenever she looks at Jason, she remembers how much she misses Percy. She wishes she could talk to her mother for help, but it was impossible after an encounter a month earlier with her, where Annabeth had received a horrible present. Annabeth also mentions feeling a mysterious chill, as if "an evil snowman had crept up behind her and was peering over her neck."
An explosion nearly knocks Annabeth overboard, and Terminus, the Roman god of boundaries, appears on the Argo II. He shrieks that he will not allow weapons inside the Pomerian Line. Annabeth tries to regain control of the situation and calm everyone down by introducing herself to Terminus, who finds that Annabeth being the daughter of Athena, the Greek form of Minerva, is "scandalous." But before Annabeth can question Terminus on what he means, Jason interrupts and asks for permission to land inside the Pomerian Line.
Annabeth spots Percy Jackson walking with Frank Zhang, "a boy with a black buzz cut" and Hazel Levesque, "a girl wearing a Roman cavalry helmet," like they were best friends. She also notices that he is now a Praetor, which makes her heart do a gymnastics routine.
Annabeth orders Leo to stop the ship as she asks Terminus whether there is a rule against the ship hovering over New Rome. She explains that technically the ship will not be touching Roman soil, and suggests they use a rope ladder to get down to the Forum, promising Terminus that all their weapons will stay on the ship as long as the legion reinforcements will honor the same rules. When questioned by Leo, who asks if this is a good idea, Annabeth clenches her fists to stop them from shaking. She feels a cold presence, which seems to be laughing at her and the bad choices she is making. But she knows Percy is down there, and that she has to see him. She replies, it will be fine and Terminus will make sure that both sides will obey the rules, if Terminus agrees. Terminus sniffs, but agrees to "for now," and allows them to climb down the ladder to New Rome, but pleads them to not destroy his town.
Annabeth descends with the rest of the Argo II's crew where she spots Tyson and Mrs. O'Leary, and Reyna, whom she finds reminding her of herself. Just as Reyna begins to give a welcoming speech, both Percy and Annabeth surge forward and hug and kiss each other, before Annabeth flips him over onto his back as she channels all her bitterness and worry about him into her judo flip. Reyna jokingly asks if Annabeth is actually a Roman or an Amazon before inviting them to their welcome feast. But Annabeth still cannot shake the feeling that something is about to go terribly wrong. They all tell stories of the quests they have been on, and Annabeth is surprised at the revelation that Hazel and Nico are related. Annabeth helps in stopping Octavian from taking Ella the harpy, when she accidentally blurts out a prophecy, by ridiculing Octavian's idea that harpies can tell the future.
While Reyna is walking with Annabeth through New Rome she calls for her dogs, Aurum and Argentum. The girls discuss the differences between Minerva and Athena. Reyna notes there are no children of Minerva at the camp due to Minerva being a virgin goddess, and that if they were to come to Camp Jupiter, they would be artists and not warriors or leaders on quests. Annabeth then realizes that she had met Reyna before at Circe's Island. They walk all the way to the Garden of Bacchus and appreciate the view. Reyna explains that she wanted to talk to Annabeth to learn the truth. Instead of Annabeth feeling bad about her not being able to trust anyone at camp, she talks about her family, growing up, and adventures in Camp Half-Blood.
Throughout the conversation, Reyna mentions that when she was on Circe's Island, she had met a son of Athena who washed up on the shore and was rambling about the Mark of Athena. Then, a large explosion makes a crater in the forum of New Rome. The Argo II then continues to attack the city. Reyna and Annabeth rush down to the Forum. Since Roman's are not allowed any weapons inside the Pomeranian Line, they had started to throw food, rocks, and plates at the Greeks. Piper and Jason try to calm the angry mob by telling them they would never attack New Rome, but fail. Right outside the Pomeranian Line the Roman's were set up catapults to fire on the attacking Argo II.
Annabeth sees Percy using water from a fountain to douse the angry mob of Romans. Octavian comes down the leader screaming that Leo has fired on everyone. Percy asks if Hazel and Frank are coming with them on the ship, and they say yes. Hazel calls for Arion and distracts the crowd by riding straight through it. Frank, in attempt to let Percy and Annabeth climb the rope, changes form into a dragon. Once Percy and Annabeth are up, Leo is tackled to the ground by Percy and falls on his head. Annabeth then takes charge of the ship and leaves Camp Jupiter as quickly as possible.
Annabeth interrogates Leo, but is called down to check on Jason, when she returns Leo tells them that they need emergency supplies to repair the ship and they land near the Great Salt Lake, in Utah. Percy and Annabeth ride Frank, in the form of a dragon, into Salt Lake City to get tar, although they run into some tar monsters, they return safely with a big bucket of tar. The demigods hold a conference in the mess hall, Piper tells them about her visions that she has seen in her knife. Unable to figure out what the visions or prophecies mean, they decide to visit Kansas, where Piper saw a strange man, Bacchus is standing in front of a sign saying 'Topeka 32'.
Leo needs Annabeth to help him repair the hull, but Percy promises to come back to her. When they return, Annabeth and the rest of the crew are surprised when Piper returns on Blackjack with two unconscious demigods. Piper explains what happened; the conversation with Bacchus who told them to go to Atlanta and find Phorcys, the trap sprung by Gaea and the eidolons and both Percy and Jason thank her for saving them. They work out what Gaea wants, the blood of two demigods, one male and one female, to water the stones of Mount Olympus and wake Mother Earth. Piper removes the eidolons from all three boys' bodies, and makes them swear on the River Styx that they will never return to this ship or possess any member of their crew.
In the middle of the night, Annabeth sneaks into Percy's cabin and wakes him up. They go down to the bottom of the ship where the stables are, which reminds her of their first quest when they were traveling in the truck full of zoo animals. Percy asks her why she is nostalgic about that, but she says it was the first time they actually talked, and when she decided to like him. They kiss, and then fall asleep.
The next morning, Frank finds them and is terrified that Coach Hedge is going to kill them for sneaking out, as everyone thought they had been kidnapped. They have a conference and Percy tells them his dream about the twin giants, Otis and Ephialtes, and Nico di Angelo suffocation in a bronze jar.
Percy and Frank decide to find Phorcys, Percy also wants to take Annabeth but Coach Hedge declares that she is grounded. He volunteers himself for the expedition. When the trio return, Annabeth was trying to amuse Hazel by telling her about Percy's greatest 'Seaweed Brain' moments. Leo sets course for Charleston, whilst Percy and Frank tell the demigods what happened, with Hedge interjecting from time to time. They discuss why they are heading to Charleston, to find a map, Percy suggest for 'The Mark of Athena' but Annabeth seems to be projecting a 'I don't want to talk about it' vibe, so Percy doesn't elaborate. Jason tells them that at Charleston, there is a museum full of Confederate ghosts, where he, Leo and Frank volunteer to visit. He also mentions the Battery park near the harbor, where there was a ghost or spirit dressed like a Southern Belle from the Civil War, Reyna went up and talked to it but when she came back she was shaken and never acted the same way around him. Annabeth decides to have a girls' adventure with Piper and Hazel.
Annabeth thinks about the last time she met her mother, in her Roman form as Minerva. Annabeth tries to get her attention by calling her Athena, but the goddess dreamily replies that 'that was my name, before they sacked my city, took my identity, made me this.' Athena tells Annabeth to avenge her, and destroy the Romans because they were dishonorable and copycats. Hera said that they must keep the two camps apart, but Athena wanted them to fight to the death, and for her children to destroy the 'usurpers'. When Annabeth argues back that she understood warfare, and was wise enough not to fight with reason, but Athena replies that now she will never forgive them, and neither would my children. She gives Annabeth a coin that looks like an old-fashioned subway token but when she looks upon it, it becomes an ancient Athenian silver drachma with the symbols of an owl and an olive branch with a Greek inscription on the other side. Athena urges her to 'Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me.', when Annabeth tries to explain that Percy is missing and Hera's plan to bring the camps together, the goddess implores her to kill Percy if he has become Roman, and if Annabeth joins them, then she has failed her mother already. No matter how many times, she tried to throw the silver coin away, it kept returning to her pocket like Percy's sword, Riptide. Annabeth thinks she is beginning to understand what her quest is, but prays to the gods that she is wrong.
Frank comes into Annabeth's cabin asking for help as he wants to know how to get out of the Chinese handcuffs, that he took from the Aquarium. Annabeth feels quite honored that Frank was embarrassed but looked for her help, after Leo teased him. She scans the handcuffs onto her laptop which produces a 3-D model on the screen. She shows him the solution to the puzzle, is to not fight against the handcuffs, and that the best traps are the most simple.
Annabeth, Piper and Hazel find the 'ghost' who turns out to Aphrodite, who invites her to have tea and chat, even though, according to her, war is coming and bloodshed is inevitable. Aphrodite reveals that the civil war between the Greeks and Romans doesn't affect her as much as the other gods (who seems to have split personalities), as love is universal. She tells them about why Athena was so angry when she became Roman, becoming more of a demure goddess of crafts and cleverness, when they took away her military importance and the Greeks, nor Athena forgave them for that insult. Annabeth realizes that the Mark of Athena leads to a statue which the Romans took, and the children of Athena have been searching for it for centuries, starting civil wars. Aphrodite directs them to a map close by that was left by her siblings in 1861, and that Annabeth will face her worst fear.
Before Annabeth can reply, Hazel spots a pegasus pulling a chariot, and two giant eagles descending down to the dock. As they run back to the ship they are stopped by Octavian and two legionnaires. Annabeth chucks her dagger into the ocean, in a bid for Percy's help, Octavian is confused but orders the other two to lower their weapons. But Percy interrupts by flooding the dock and dragging the Romans into the sea, he tells Annabeth that she dropped her dagger. They run back to the Argo II and Annabeth and Percy pilot it to Fort Sumter. They see Frank as a giant bald eagle carrying Leo, and Jason riding the wind behind them, but Coach Hedge fires a 'warning shot' which knocks out the Roman chariot following them which then crashes into Jason and also singes Frank's wings so he drops Leo.
When Annabeth enters the fort she sees Leo firing at giant eagles, a full grown elephant who was rampaging around the flagpoles and Jason fighting Dakota before knocking him out. Fortunately there are a lot of tourists which cause chaos but also stop Annabeth from moving anywhere quickly. Annabeth gets shut in a room, only to see it swarmed by tiny black spiders. She panics and has a flashback, when she was little and spiders came at night, her step mother tells her to stop scaring her little brothers and she's only imagining it. The spider bites fade before she gets dressed and her step-mom thought that the cobwebs were a trick. On the third night, Annabeth ran away from home.
Gaea talks to her saying that although she would rather have Annabeth as a sacrifice, she will let the weaver take her revenge. Annabeth sees a red symbol of an owl blaze on the wall and the spiders disappear. She runs towards an old artillery piece that is glowing red, and using her knife retrieves a small bronze disc, which she stuffs in her backpack. She is confronted by Reyna, with her two metal greyhounds, when she tries to explain, Reyna cuts her off and tells her to come with her quietly, where she will be trialled and then painfully executed. Or Octavian will attack Camp Half-Blood, the location of which she told Reyna, Annabeth pleads that Reyna slow her down. Reyna says she respects her as they are both daughters of war goddesses, but she believes that Annabeth's quest is doomed to fail. Reyna retreats but swears that when they meet again, they will be enemies on the battle field. Annabeth runs for the ship and Piper pulls her onto the deck.
|“||She looked just the way she had when she'd faced the Sphinx - like she wasn't going to accept an easy answer, even if it got her in serious trouble.||”|
Annabeth can be very possessive of the people she loves. For example, she is very anxious of losing Percy to another girl like Rachel or Calypso. Like in the fourth book, the Battle of the Labyrinth, assuming that Percy is dead, she speaks to the crowd, saying, "He was probably the bravest friend I ever had". Yet when Percy emerged, and Annabeth figures out that he was recuperating on Calypso's island, she calls him the "single most annoying person I've ever met!"
Annabeth is very harsh and judgmental during first meetings, but after winning her approval she is very loyal. She is very strong-minded and equally stubborn. Annabeth is an intellectual genius, as well as clever and witty. She's also analytical, strategic, and is very wise.
Since Percy left her for months, Annabeth has become reckless when a situation concerns him and she has also developed a fear of losing him to death or being separated from him for all time.
|“||Don't you ever feel like, what if the world really is messed up? What if we could do it all over again from scratch?||”|
An evidence of how her hubris can be a hindrance (at best) is seen during her confrontation with the Sphinx where Annabeth was forced to answer several random questions from her. Despite answering all correctly, Annabeth noticed that none of these questions were riddles, just random trivia, and when she demands a true challenge to her intelligence. This only annoyed the Sphinx and provoked her to attack Annabeth.
In The Mark of Athena, Annabeth's arrogance leads her to mock Arachne after the weaver had already been captured. However, her insult toward Arachne lead Arachne to thrash about in her prison, causing the floor of her layer to crack and break, weakening the already fragile structures. This ultimately causes both Annabeth and Percy fall into Tartarus, along with Arachne.
Like all other half-blood children of Athena, Annabeth has immense arachnophobia, freezing up just when she sees a spider or anything bearing a close resemblance to one, as she demonstrated in The Battle of the Labyrinth, when the metal spider leading to Hephaestus' forge pops up. This fear is caused by Athena's bad history with Arachne, the mother of spiders. In ancient times, Arachne, a mortal girl who was well-known for her weaving skills, challenged Athena to see who could make the best tapestry. Athena, already full of hatred towards the girl's audacity, accepted the challenge, and both goddess and mortal weaved a tapestry. Athena's tapestry was of the gods punishing mortals for being too full of pride, while Arachne's tapestry ridiculed the gods. Both works were equal in beauty, but Athena could not stand the insult towards the Olympians, and destroyed Arachne's tapestry and transformed her into a spider. Ever since then, Athena's children have been paranoid that every spider they see is out to get them - which is largely true. According to Annabeth, spiders are unusually aggressive to children of Athena. In The Demigod Files, inside her trunk is a bottle of anti-spider bug spray. In The Lightning Thief, Percy says that she was "screaming her head off" when they were in the Thrill Ride O' Love (Waterland's version of The Tunnel of Love) ride to get Ares' shield. In the same book, Annabeth stated that any spider within the radius of one mile would be able to find her.
Annabeth is also scared of Cyclopes because of an event in her childhood when Luke, Thalia, Grover, and herself were trapped by one when trying to make it to camp. She finds it very creepy when a Cyclops mimics another persons voice such as when Tyson mimics the voices he hears on the Princess Andromeda. Though not as scared of cyclopes as she is of spiders, it still takes her most of The Sea of Monsters to be able to get close to Tyson, even though he helped her a lot throughout the book.
Annabeth has curly golden blonde hair and is "like a princess," as Percy describes it. She is tall, fit, and athletic. Her eyes have been described as an intense shade of grey and always have a distracted look as if she were thinking of a million things at once. Annabeth looks like a typical California girl only with a natural tan. Annabeth is described as 'cute', 'pretty'. and 'beautiful' many times in the books by Percy. Other characters have said similar things, such as Aphrodite telling her she had "grown into quite a beautiful young lady" and Chrysaor saying she was 'lovely'.
- ADHD: Annabeth's supernatural alertness and keen senses that keep her ready for, and alive, in battle.
- Dyslexia: Annabeth's brain is "hard-wired" for divine Ancient Greek instead of mortal languages.
- Fighting Skills: She is capable in hand-to-hand combat (she was trained during her stay at Camp Half-Blood). She fights best with a knife given to her by Luke when she was seven, which she has shown great skill with enough to fend off a skilled fighter of Ethan Nakamura's caliber. She is also skilled with a sword and a bow as well as her knife.
- Divine Wisdom: She has her mother's wisdom and is very intelligent and sophisticated.
- She is knowledgeable in architecture and the Greek gods and creatures, which is very useful in journeys, battles, and quests.
- Strategy and Battle Skill: Because her mother is the goddess of wisdom and battle strategy, Annabeth is a skilled warrior in battle and an adept strategist.
- She is a master strategist (like her mother, Athena). She shows her strategic abilities in the Last Olympian where Athena and her were creating battle plans and strategies. Percy acknowledges that she's the best strategist he knows and Annabeth has continuously proven to be able to formulate effective pre and mid-battle strategies.
- She is a capable hand-to-hand combatant and is skilled with a sword, knife, and bow.
- Unlike most demigods, Annabeth is shown to fight better with a knife then a sword.
- Crafts: She is also skilled with crafts (such as weaving, as shown in The Mark of Athena).
- A magical Yankees baseball cap that makes anyone turn invisible when put on, given to her as a gift from her mom on her twelfth birthday. In The Mark of Athena, after Annabeth's fight with Minerva It has said to lost its magic.
- A Celestial bronze knife that she uses as a weapon. This knife was given to Annabeth by Luke Castellan. It was later cursed when Luke betrayed Annabeth and Percy. It is unknown if this was lost at the end of The Mark of Athena.
- A leather necklace with clay beads from every year at Camp Half-Blood. It also has her father's college ring on it as well as a coral pendant that Percy Jackson had given her when they first started dating.
- Medea's SPF 50,000 sunscreen, tropical coconut scented.
- A waterproof yellow duffel bag from Hermes.
- A spider automaton that had helped her, Percy, Grover, and Tyson find Hephaestus (she is quite scared of it because of her arachnophobia, unknown what happened to it after book 4).
- A Pair of Daedalus' Wings after the fight in Daedalus' Workshop in the Labyrinth. They were damaged and had to be thrown away, to prevent mortals from seeing them.
- A laptop with Daedalus' notes and designs, given to her by Daedalus at the end of The Battle of the Labyrinth after the battle before he died. It is unknown if this was lost at the end of The Mark of Athena.
- A video shield during The Last Olympian, made by Charles Beckendorf, a son of Hephaestus, designed by Daedalus. This was lost in The Demigod Diaries.
- A coin, known as 'The Mark of Athena' with the symbols of Athena on it and leads chosen demigod children of Athena to the Athena Parthenos, a 40-foot tall statue of Athena that was stolen by the Romans.
|“|| Annabeth glared at me like she was going to punch me. And then she did something that surprised me even more. She kissed me.
A key subplot in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is the relationship between Annabeth, Percy, and Luke Castellan. Luke is Annabeth's hero and one of her first half-blood friends. Annabeth likes Percy, which she hints at, but she still has lingering feelings of kinship towards Luke. At the end of The Last Olympian, Luke shows some feelings for her, like when, at the end of The Last Olympian, he asks Annabeth if she loved him. She told him that "[she loved] him like a brother to which he nodded like he expected it. These feeling are present despite the fact that Luke and Percy are arch enemies and he has attempted to kill Percy numerous times.
In The Sea of Monsters, it emerges that one of her life's wishes is to save Luke. In the beginning of The Lightning Thief, Annabeth is shown to dislike Percy when she discovers that Percy is the hero of the prophecy. She thinks he is weak and unable to complete his mission, and is influenced by the rivalry between her mother, Athena, and Percy's father, Poseidon. At the very end of The Sea of Monsters, Annabeth kisses Percy on the cheek after they win the chariot race.In The Titan's Curse, there are suggestions of some romance between Annabeth and Percy, although this is complicated by her continuing belief in Luke and the fact that her mother, Athena, disapproves of her "relationship" with Percy and tells Percy this face to face after the vote to have him destroyed. When asked if they would let him live, Athena was one of the gods that didn't raise her hand (majority ruled, but it is unknown if she would have raised her hand to have him destroyed as Zeus never asked) and had told the other gods that keeping him alive was dangerous, something that caused Annabeth to become aggravated with her mother.
In The Battle of the Labyrinth, Annabeth finally expresses her feelings for Percy by kissing him good luck before she vanishes using her magic Yankee's cap. When Percy returns, she is highly jealous, because she suspects he has been with Calypso, who is cursed to fall in love with any hero that lands on her phantom island, Ogygia.
In The Demigod Files, Percy asked Annabeth to the Fourth of July fireworks which is "the biggest dating event of the summer." During her interview Annabeth states that Percy is courageous, has a sense of humor and is good-looking ("but don't you dare tell him I said that"). She also says that he's oblivious to how people feel even when it is totally obvious, although she tries (and fails) to hide what she is really talking about ("... he doesn't see really obvious stuff, like the way people feel, even when you're giving him hints, and being totally blatant. What? No, I'm not talking about anyone or anything in particular! I'm just making a general statement. Why does everyone always think... agh! Forget it.").
In The Last Olympian, after the defeat of Kronos and the saving of Luke's soul, the romantic relationship between Percy and Annabeth is solidified. Annabeth also states Percy looks "cute when he's worried" when he first checks on her after she took a knife that was meant for him. Annabeth confides to Luke as he dies that she always saw him as a brother, but never loved him. When Percy was offered immortality by the Olympians (actually by Zeus himself and voted for by the rest of the gods), Percy saw that Annabeth was very pale, and he suspected she was having a panic similar to the one he had when he thought she was going to join the Hunters of Artemis. Later, she and Percy share their second kiss after he tries to tell her how he feels about her and tells him that she will never make things easy for him. He describes it as if 'his brain felt it was melting through his body'. But a raid of campers led by Clarisse snoop on this and throw them into the camp lake. Then comes to a third kiss underwater in an air bubble made by Percy under the surface of the lake who says it was 'the best underwater kiss of all time' because "When you're the son of Poseidon, you don't have to hurry." They are together as of the end of the Percy Jackson series. It is hinted that they might be married one day in the future as Annabeth said she wanted "to build something permanent," and Percy states that maybe they were "getting a good start together." Percy was her first kiss.
In The Lost Hero, it is said that Percy and Annabeth are still dating. Percy goes missing for three days and Annabeth becomes very worried. Annabeth starts getting visions that telling her to go to the Grand Canyon to find someone with one shoe. Annabeth thought that person would be Percy, her boyfriend, but instead it was Jason Grace, son of Jupiter, Zeus's Roman counterpart. She gets mad at him because she wants to find Percy instead. She yells at the sky saying," What do you want from me? What have you done with him?" At the end of the book, it is revealed that Percy and Jason are switched because they are both war leaders of each camp, much to Annabeth's dismay. She says that she will join Jason, Piper, and Leo on their next quest to go to Camp Jupiter to look for Percy and find the other possible demigods (the Roman ones who should be on the quest to cooperate with the Greek demigods against the Giants and the earth goddess Gaea on the War against the Giants and Gaea) to save the Olympian gods' original home of Mount Olympus, the actual mountain sitting in Greece and the Olympian gods' elder roots.
In The Demigod Diaries, Percy and Annabeth celebrates their one-month anniversary in Paris after they rescued George and Martha from Cacus. As a reward for rescuing them, Hermes teleported them to Paris, where they enjoy a dinner, a walk, and a boat ride.
In The Son of Neptune, Annabeth is the only thing Percy remembers from his past. When he is running from the gorgons and he sees San Francisco, it reminds him of Annabeth. Before he leaves on the quest to free Thanatos, he dreams of Annabeth and she tells him to stay put because Tyson and Mrs. O'Leary are close. He also remembers that she kissed him whenever he did something stupid. He later mentions that she must have kissed him a lot - also hinting that he did stupid stuff a lot too. He also remembers the kiss underwater, at the canoe lake.
In The Mark of Athena, Annabeth appears to be nervous and excited to meet Percy, and she feels she is becoming reckless about her decisions as she is desperate to meet him. It is revealed that she had secretly harbored a crush on him since they were twelve years old, but only last summer had she properly fell for him. Annabeth thinks that her feelings for him seemed to have grown more "painfully intense". Annabeth tells Percy that she loves him, and has a fear of losing him completely and that they need to be together to be truly happy, as she is only at home with Percy.
The relationship between Luke and Annabeth becomes a constant source of conflict between her and Percy. Annabeth started to like Luke when he gave her his knife on the streets. During the events of The Lightning Thief, before Percy and Annabeth began to develop feelings for each other, Annabeth introduces Luke to Percy and acts shy around him. When Grover, Annabeth, and Percy sent an Iris message to camp, Luke appears on the other side of the rainbow and Annabeth immediately tries to clean herself off and begins to mess with her hair. After Luke betrays the camp and almost kills Percy, she takes it very hard.
It wasn’t until The Sea of Monsters that she and Luke meet again on his cruise ship. He offers her a place in the Titan army and says that if Thalia were alive, she would have joined his side too. When Annabeth refuses, she escapes and leads Percy to a secret hideout, revealing how she met Luke and the promise that he and Thalia would be her new family.
During the events of the next few books, Annabeth begins to show feelings for Percy, but every time Percy brings up the fact that they have to stop Luke, Annabeth would always defend him. Even during the events of The Titan's Curse when Percy believed that Luke was dead, Annabeth had a feeling that he wasn’t. In The Battle of the Labyrinth, Percy believes that Luke has become completely lost to them after forcing Percy to fight another demigod and almost kills Annabeth and Rachel. When he makes off handed remarks after they escape about how evil Luke has become, this greatly upsets Annabeth and she begins to yell at Percy for being so cold.
During the Battle of Manhattan, Luke asks Annabeth whether she ever loved him while taking her hand. Percy looks at her, "drinking in the fact that she was still there" and Annabeth tells Luke "You were like a brother to me, Luke, but I didn't love you." Luke just nods, having expected this, and dies moments later.
In The Lost Hero, Jason says after Annabeth tells him about the pictures on the wall next to Thalia's bed, in Zeus' cabin, that maybe Percy wasn't the only boy Annabeth liked.

Grover was one of Annabeth's closest friends, helping her get to Camp Half-Blood. They remained friends throughout their relationship, and fought together often. Grover usually showed his concern for her, too. In the end of The Last Olympian when Percy is fighting Luke, it is shown that, to protect her, Grover is holding Annabeth.
Annabeth is best friends with Thalia, first meeting her when she was seven and had ran away from home. After Thalia sacrificed herself, to save her, Luke, and Grover her respect grew. Thalia's father, Zeus, transformed her into a pine tree to save her from death after she sacrificed herself. Thalia returned with the magical powers of The Golden Fleece and Annabeth re-established their close friendship, for example, attending the same school together in The Titan's Curse.
Annabeth was jealous of Rachel, partly because Percy would hang out with her whenever he needed an escape from camp, but also because of the feelings that both girls had for Percy Jackson. When the two meet, Annabeth treated Rachel with hostility, not wanting to admit that she needed help on her quest, especially from a mortal girl. The two eventually start to connect because of their mutual problems with their parents. While still disliking Rachel mostly for her relation with Percy, Annabeth still went out of her way to save Rachel from a falling helicopter.
After a while she starts to like her a little more, once she realizes Percy and Rachel are only friends, even giving the two some time alone to say goodbye they dropped her off after exiting the Labyrinth. After Rachel became the new Oracle, Annabeth and her start to become much better friends as the Oracle is prohibited from dating anybody. Eventually, the two become very good friends, as shown in The Lost Hero.
Annabeth and Piper seem to get along well, despite their parents' differences. Piper states that Annabeth would make a cool friend in better times. Before being claimed, Piper hoped that her mom was Athena because Annabeth is a good friend and it would be cool to have her as a sister, something that Annabeth reciprocates, as said to her by Rachel Elizabeth Dare. Their friendship deepens in The Mark of Athena with Piper saying that she "had never had a better friend" while referring to Annabeth. They even have their own inside joke, where the two will steal the other's breakfast.
Jason and Annabeth have a somewhat difficult relationship. When they first meet at the Grand Canyon, Annabeth treated him with hostility because she was hoping her boyfriend would be there. After calming down, she treats Jason as more of a problem waiting to be solved, as he has no memory of his past. Before leaving to search for Percy again, she tells Jason a bit about Thalia, the other child of Zeus. After remembering that Thalia is his sister, Jason confides in her that they are related, something he isn't sure Annabeth completely believes. Later, Jason and Annabeth both figure out that Percy is at Camp Jupiter and could be in danger, so Jason allows her to come with them on the Argo II.
By the time the Argo II sailed for Camp Jupiter, Annabeth is still a bit distrusting of Jason, feeling that the trip to the Roman camp could be some kind of trap. She also feels that he is too perfect, as he always acts nobly, does the honorable thing, and even looks too perfect. Some of her dislike of him also comes from the constant reminder of how much she misses Percy.
It is believed by Sally that Annabeth is the most levelheaded demigod to ever to hit the eighth grade. She also believes that she keeps Percy from getting killed. Percy secretly admits to this statement. In The Mark of Athena, Annabeth mentions often visiting Sally to keep both their hopes up that somewhere, Percy is still alive. Annabeth mentions crying together, hinting that the two of them grew close in a trying time.
Annabeth has had several issues with her mortal family. After her dad remarried, she grew distant from him. She often ran away from home, and succeeded in doing so when she was seven, joining Luke and Thalia. After some time, she reestablished contact, and occasionally met with them. They tried to make it work three times, with the third one finally working out for the most. Around The Titan's Curse, it seems her relationship with them is getting better, and by The Last Olympian she seems to be living with them again (though, this is not for certain because she is going to go to a school in New York near Percy's, and her family lives in San Francisco).
In the The Lightning Thief, Annabeth states that she had been to Mt. Olympus with some other campers (Luke and Clarisse) at the solstice. Athena also gave Annabeth the invisible Yankees cap as a twelfth birthday present. Annabeth has a close relationship with her mother, despite meeting her very little. Her mother trusts her and seems to see Annabeth as her pride and joy. They seem to discuss many things and have a set of plans in preparation for any catastrophe. Athena made Annabeth the new architect of Olympus after the damage caused during the Battle of Manhattan. She disapproves of her relationship with Percy, and even claims that keeping him alive would be dangerous to the gods, much to the grief of her daughter. She seems to have accepted it in the end, though reluctantly and even helped Percy to escape Hoover Dam without Annabeth's knowledge in the The Titans Curse.
Annabeth appears to have a good relationship with Malcolm, her half-brother, as he is her second-in-command for Cabin 6.
Gods and GoddessesEdit
Dionysus often got Annabeth's name wrong, and seemed to care very little for her, despite being her camp director.
Annabeth respects Artemis, and one point Annabeth had considered joining the hunt but decided against it, because she didn't want to swear off boys forever. Artemis does not seem to hold ill will to her from this choice, however. In the Demigod Files, Annabeth is asked who the wisest god/goddess is apart from her mom and she states, "I've always admired Artemis, too... She spends more time in the mortal world than most gods, too, so she understands what's going on. She doesn't understand guys, though. I guess nobody's perfect."
Annabeth hasn't spoken to Poseidon directly, but unlike Athena, Poseidon has not shown any ill will to his son's relationship with her. In fact, he may even support it considering her and Percy's third kiss was in his domain.
Annabeth has a terrible relationship with Queen Hera. In The Battle of the Labyrinth, she helps Annabeth and her companions in their quest many times. However, at the end of the book Annabeth accuses her of wanting perfect families and not caring about their 'imperfect' family members. This enrages Hera who curses her after this, sending "intestinally challenged cows" after her. She tries to injure Annabeth with her statue at Olympus though ends up trapping her stepdaughter Thalia. In The Lost Hero, Annabeth does not seem to care if Hera is killed or imprisoned forever; she believes that it is a favor for them and that Hera is getting what she deserves (and this resentment towards Hera may have increased from the "gamble" Hera made by sending Percy to the other camp, with possibly no memory of her whatsoever).
Annabeth was very close to joining the Hunters when she was a kid. This is known when Grover finds a brochure about the Hunt in her backpack, and Thalia states: "Annabeth wanted to join the Hunters. Maybe you should think about why." Another possible hint was when Percy and Annabeth were dancing in the military school, they are talking about her problems of moving to San Francisco. She says, "It's more serious than that. Percy I...I should probably tell you something." This could possibly mean that she was going to join the hunt to escape monsters and her problems. But in the end, she decides against it, and in her interview in The Demigod Files, when asked about what other god she thought on the Olympian council was wise, she begins talking about Artemis. She says, "She doesn't understand guys, though. I guess nobody's perfect."
FilmEditAlexandra Daddario. Unlike the books, Annabeth has brown hair instead of blonde and blue eyes instead of gray.
In the film, Annabeth is seen at Camp Half-Blood after Percy's battle with the Minotaur, fighting several campers at once and beating them all during a camp tradition of Capture the Flag. She later takes on Percy during a game of Capture the Flag and very easily defeats him, until he goes to the water (the camp stream) to heal himself, which he then proceeds to fight her more forcefully and successfully disarms her. Later, Annabeth decides to go on the quest with Percy and Grover.
During the quest, Medusa specifically wants to kill her because her mother, Athena, cursed her. Grover saves Annabeth while Percy distracts Medusa; she drives the car that knocks Medusa to the ground to give Percy time to escape and behead her with his celestial bronze sword, Riptide. Then, after securing Medusa's head for potential further use, Percy and Annabeth have a conversation by a motel pool the night before assaulting the replica of the Parthenon in Nashville, Tennessee.
They discuss their parents and the conversation seems to be heading towards even more personal subjects, but Grover interrupts them. Annabeth heads to the Underworld with Percy and Grover, then to Mount Olympus where she sees Luke's betrayal for herself. On Olympus, Annabeth meets her mother for the first time. It is assumed that this was one of her life-long wishes. She is a formidable fighter and shows her book counterpart's ability to react to events that happened in Greek mythology, such as warning Percy about the Hydra in the fight in Nashville (which was in the guise of the replica Parthenon's janitors) and the story of Hercules and Hermes going to the Underworld.
Annabeth will once again be portrayed by Alexandra Daddario. However, this time she will have blonde hair.

Annabeth is a variant of the Hebrew name, Anna, as the name means "God has favored me" as this could possibly been seen as Athena, her mother, very much favors her daughter, seeing her as the pride and joy of her children. Her name may also be a part of Athena's name.
