Pegasi are winged horses. They have been known to come in a variety of colors from brown, to white, to black, and even mixed colors (ex: brown and white). They are named after the original Pegasus. They are his offspring. The most notable pegasus in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is Blackjack, Percy's pure black Pegasus.
Percy gets a pegasus riding lesson with Silena Beauregard, daughter of Aphrodite. It is also mentioned that the pegasi (mostly Blackjack) go to Percy to get him to help them with their and other sea creatures' problems. Afterwards, Blackjack helps Percy with traveling, including chasing after Zoë Nightshade, Grover Underwood, Bianca di Angelo, and Thalia Grace to assist them in their quest to save Artemis and Annabeth Chase.
Percy visits the stables. Percy calls Blackjack and four other pegasi to transport himself and his friends back to Camp Half-Blood.The Battle of Manhattan. Later when Percy told Silena that anyone that could get along with Clarisse has talent, she takes a pegasus and flies back to Camp Half-Blood to try and convince Clarisse and the Ares cabin to help fight the forces of Kronos. Percy also tells her she is the best pegasus rider at the camp. Porkpie and Guido assisted too along with the other pegasi from Camp Half-Blood, but Guido was injured after flying Percy and Annabeth to save Rachel Elizabeth Dare after Olympus was saved. Rachel also takes Blackjack after the battle and rides him back to camp.
Reyna has a peanut colored pegasus called Scipio which she uses during Camp Jupiter's War Game and later in battle fighting Polybotes' army. He is the only Pegasus at Camp Jupiter, due to belonging to a Praetor, however it is likely that Jason has one.
