Cabin for Hephaestus' children
Hephaestus' cabin (#9) is for the children of Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths and fire. The cabin is made of brick and has a smokestack sticking out of it, like a tiny factory or an over-sized motor-home.
DescriptionEditThe entrance is like a vault door, circular, and of thick metal. It opens with a lot of gears turning and smoke hissing. It has shiny metal walls and metal slatted doors. It is noted for being unclean and messy, filled with junk most of the time. The interior of cabin consists of steel bunks folded against the walls with a digital control panel. It has a basement, with power-tools, an assortment of weapons, a workbench and a lot of scrap metal. There is a tunnel underneath it. There are only three Hephaestus demigods at the end of the war with the Titans because of Charles Beckendorf's death. In The Lost Hero, their numbers have risen to about a dozen boys and girls, although none of them look alike.
