Deimos is the Greek god of terror and the son of Ares and Aphrodite. He and his twin brother, Phobos, were responsible for stealing Ares' chariot from Clarisse in The Demigod Files. His Roman Counterpart is Metus. In ancient myths, he accompanied Ares in his war chariot together with his brother Phobos.
Angry that their half-sister Clarisse La Rue was allowed to drive Ares' War Chariot, their usual job (also it's traditionally only sons of Ares that are allowed), Phobos and Deimos decided to steal the chariot from her in Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot.
They then hid it in the Staten Island Zoo and used it as bait for their sister and Percy Jackson. Phobos fought Percy but was defeated and disappeared. Deimos changed his appearance to match Ares in order to scare Clarisse. He too disappeared, after Clarisse overcame her fear.
Deimos is described as a muscular teenage boy, dressed in jeans, a black shirt, and a leather jacket and a brutal face covered with scars. He is known to be more aggressive than his brother, Phobos.
