Nico di Angelo is a fourteen year old Greek demigod son of Hades and the mortal Maria di Angelo. He is also the younger brother of the late Bianca di Angelo and the half brother of Hazel Levesque. He is known in the Underworld as the "Ghost King" after taking the title from King Minos.
Nico di Angelo was born sometime in the early 1930's in Venice, Italy before Hades and his brothers took an oath to have no more children. Since Nico was born in Italy and his mother was Italian, he can speak fluent Italian. He had an older sister named Bianca di Angelo. Around the age of six, Nico visited Diocletian's Palace in Split, Croatia. At some point near the beginning of World War II, Nico and his family left Italy for the United States, where they stayed at a fancy hotel. Their mother, Maria, died when Zeus struck the hotel they were staying in with lightning in order to kill the siblings. However, they were protected by Hades as he erected a wall of black energy to shield them from Zeus. However, Hades was not able to protect their mother in time. Both of them were brought to the Lotus Hotel and Casino by the Fury Alecto, who was disguised as a lawyer for their own safety. Alecto was also instructed by Hades to bathe them in the River Lethe to wipe their memories. Sometime before being placed in the Lotus Hotel, Bianca and Nico lived in Washington D.C. for a time.
After what the siblings thought was a month in the Lotus Hotel (which was actually approximately seventy years), they were taken out by a lawyer. This lawyer however was a different lawyer than the one who brought them in. Hades' intention for taking them from the Lotus Hotel was because he wanted one of them to be the child of the Prophecy and not the "idiot" son of Poseidon, referring to Percy Jackson. They were brought to a military school in Maine, paid for by Hades using what they thought to be a trust fund left to them by their parents.
