–Cupid, The House of Hades
While looking for Ares' Shield in the Thrill Ride O' Love, Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase fall into a trap made by Hephaestus. Inside the ride, there are small Cupid statues with sharp arrows aimed at the duo.
Cupid does not make a physical appearance, but he is mentioned. Frank Zhang and Percy think that Thanatos is Cupid. Thanatos states that he is frequently mistaken for Cupid. Thanatos mentions that Death and Love have more in common than people think.
Cupid has Diocletian's scepter and refuses to give Jason Grace and Nico di Angelo the scepter until Nico admits something out loud. Nico attacks the invisible Cupid with Skeleton Warriors until Nico admits that he left Camp Half-Blood for love and admits to liking Percy. After Nico admits his feelings, Cupid turns visible and tells him that the only way to conquer love is to face it.
Cupid is a lean, muscular young adult with snowy white wings, a white frock, and jeans. His face is handsome with a harsh look. He has black hair and blood red eyes, as if "every valentine in the world were squeezed." In most paintings and sculptures Cupid is portrayed as a chubby winged toddler often wearing a diaper and other times he is a slender winged youth. He is usually holding a bow which shot arrows make people fall in love when struck by one.
- He presumably possesses the standard powers of a god.
