The Lost Hero (mentioned)
Notus was the son of Eos and Astraeus. He is the South Wind, one of the four Anemoi. As his brother, Boreas the North Wind resides in Quebec (the oldest Northern American settlement), Notus may reside in one of the older Southern American settlements. His Roman counterpart is Auster.
Notus' winds are heavy and filled with moisture, creating fog and mists. He was associated with the desiccating hot wind of the rise of Sirius after midsummer, was thought to bring the storms of late summer and autumn, he was also feared as a destroyer of crops.
Notus is mentioned by an angry Boreas since Notus supposedly gets to spend the spring break in Cancun. Also, Chiron mentions that Notus is the most gentle of the winds and that the heroes of the Prophecy of Seven should use his winds to sail to Greece.
Auster, Notus' Roman form is more warlike and militaristic than his Greek counterpart.
- It's possible that Notus has demigod children, since, when the Boreads were confronting Leo about the fire they could smell, Zethes thought he was a 'child of the South Wind' sent to spy on them. This also hints that Notus likely has some connection to and/or power over heat, much like Boreas with his snow and ice powers.
