Upon landing on an island near Bear Mountain, Jason and the Argonauts encounter the Gegeines who raided their ship when the others went into the forest to find supplies. Heracles was among the Argonauts guarding the ship at the time and managed to slay some of them until Jason returned. Once some of the other Gegeines were killed, the Argonauts set sail.
They look like clay statues of giants that have six arms. They are 7 - 8ft tall. They have superhuman strength, and can generate large surprisingly sharp rocks in their hands. They are the servants of the Giants and were born from the Earth as shock-troops for the Giants during the original Giant War. Once Jason, Piper McLean, and Leo Valdez got to Mount Diablo, they met the giant Enceladus, who summoned Earthborn straight from the ground. Leo destroyed five of them with construction equipment, and the last one was destroyed by Piper. Once they got destroyed, they left some pieces of loincloth behind.After Jason, Leo, and Piper's helicopter got destroyed, Thalia Grace met up with them. She told them about how they were surrounded now, and then killed one of the Earthborn with her final arrow . Later, Piper and Leo fought the rest of them, and returned all of them to the pits of Tartarus. However, after Porphyrion rose, they came back to life.
During the battle at Camp Jupiter, they were fired on by the Scorpians but continued to push the Romans back before Percy and Frank rallied the Fifth and Third cohorts to attack them. A large number of Earthborn were destroyed when Percy used the Eagle to kill a huge number of monsters. The remainder were presumed to have been killed or fled after the battle. While Percy is running from Polybotes, Tyson is seen battling an Earthborn with Ella 's help.
- According to Ella, the groin of an Earthborn is sensitive. It is unknown if this is true or not, but likely is since she is very knowlegdeable.
- When Gegeines are defeated they melt into clay.
