Lupa is the immortal Roman wolf goddess who trains Roman demigods in the ways of Rome. She trains the demigods at the Wolf House, then sends them to Camp Jupiter where they can join the Twelfth Legion

History

Caretaker of Remus and Romulus

Remus and Romulus were the twin sons of Mars and Rhea Silvia, who were thrown into the Tiber River at the command of their great-uncle Amulius. They were saved by a great she-wolf who nurtured and raised them as her own. Having grown strong under her guidance, the twins would go on to destroy Amulius and establish the city of Rome.

The Heroes of Olympus

The Lost Hero

Lupa contacts Jason Grace in his dreams to warn him about Gaea inadvertently. She also calls Jason their "Saving Grace," and curls her lips in a smile as if she just made a joke. Jason, not knowing his last name at the time doesn't see the humor. It isn't until he learns who he is that he understands what Lupa had meant by it. Later, when Lycaon attacks Jason and his friends, he makes a reference to Lupa, saying that soon Lupa would have to think twice before attacking his pack.

The Son of Neptune

According to Percy Jackson, she promised him that he would see Annabeth Chase again if he succeeded in his quest. She apparently taught Percy to sharpen his "homing senses" which evidently led him south. She also told Percy his name after Hera took his memory. It's said that her pack slowed down the army of Polybotes on their way to Camp Jupiter however she did not interfere directly with the final battle at the camp as it is not her way. "Conquer or die," was one of her mottos. 

Personality

Being a Roman goddess, Lupa is harsh and judgmental towards people, mortal and god alike. She only respects the strong, as any demigod who she judges to be weak is devoured by her and her wolves. She doesn't seem to care about the hierarchy among gods, as she confessed to be indifferent to Hera while she was imprisoned in The Lost Hero (though she acknowledged her importance and the consequences of what would happen if Jason's quest failed).

Despite her militaristic personality, Lupa has a soft side. For example, while strict, she is not above making the occasional joke, as seen when she called Jason their "saving Grace" (a play on words in reference to both his surname and that he would help free Hera). She can also be a loving mother, as Percy claimed that she frequently tells her role in Remus and Romulus' fates, implying that she still is proud of them.

Appearance

She is described in wolf form with beautiful chocolate red fur and eyes as silver as mist. She is also described as being very tall, taller than any human. In Jason's dream, she was seven feet tall.

Abilities

For now, Lupa hasn't made any personal appearance, but it is implied that she is quite powerful. For example, being the wolf goddess, she has control and divine authority over all the wolves in the world, except the lycanthropes, who are followers of Lycaon who are not even fully "wolves". It is implied that she is very strong and skilled in combat, as Percy (having been trained by her) knows what she is capable of doing, to the point of becoming horrified when Reyna claims that she and her pack are not enough to defeat Polybotes and his army (though this might be due to the Doors of Death being open at the time, thus preventing the Giant army from being permanently killed). She also has limited Hypnokinesis, enough to contact Jason in his dream.

Trivia

  • Her name, Lupa, is the female form of the Latin word for wolf (lupus) translating as She-wolf.
  • In The Lost HeroChiron calls Lupa his Roman counterpart though it is not true. They are alike in some ways but factually it is incorrect.
