Name: Micah Samuel Olivier (Mikey to those who want to annoy him)
Gender: Micah is a bisexual cis-male.
Mortal Parent: Sebastian Olivier never wanted a child. A self-proclaimed investigator of the paranormal, he spent most of his time living on donations from his small group of fans and the meager amount he made on the sales of his books. There was no room in his budget for a child, especially a son like Micah. After saving up money for years and living off of cheap tv dinners, Sebastian had finally gotten the opportunity to take a one way trip to Paris to visit the catacombs. It was his dream. Without the money to return, he slept in alleys, living out of a suitcase that was eventually stolen from him. Within a week, he noticed someone else sitting in his normal alley. A woman. Weak with hunger, and eager to meet someone else in Paris, Sebastian struck up a conversation with the shaking woman. The two became close, and Sebastian was inspired enough to start doing random jobs for people for extra cash. Akhlys left immediately after Micah was born, leaving Sebastian with a newborn and no place to go. Finally, more desperate than he had ever been, he called his brother Ryan. Ryan managed to book him a flight home with Micah, and they all moved in together, Ryan trying to help Sebastian get his life together. †
God Parent: Micahís mother is Akhlys, the goddess of misery. She appeared as a young woman, with long dark hair, dull blue eyes, and scratches across her cheeks. Akhlys had been attracted to Sebastianís misery, and was able to find a way to cause him more.
Date of Birth: Micah was born on June 18, and is currently eighteen years old
Place of Birth: Paris, France
Hometown/Last Residence: Micah was raised in an apartment in Galveston, Texas by his father and uncle.
Race/ethnicity: Micah is Caucasian, with a French grandfather and Irish grandmother. †
Accent: Sebastian, with his Portland accent, didnít want his son to have the typical southern accent. While it was hard to avoid, Micahís Texan accent is a bit softer than most.
Skin Tone: Micahís skin is naturally very pale. He never tans, only burns, no matter what he does.
Eye Color: Micah has light blue eyes that remind his father of the form his mother used.
Hair Color: Micahís hair is a dark ginger, like his fatherís.
Hair Length: Micahís hair reaches just past his shoulders, and he frequently keeps it up in a bun to keep it out of his face. Occasionally, when heís tired, he just ties it up in a ponytail or lets it down.
Weight: 145 lbs
Body Type: Micah is slim, without much muscle. It can be a bit hard for him to put on weight.
Appearance: Micah is rather thin, but not underweight. His pale skin is absolutely covered in freckles, and there is a long scar on his right bicep. Most of the time there are dark circles around his eyes, and he frequently looks tired.
As a child, Micah was used to being dragged to his fatherís meetings with fans. During these frequent meetings, Micah always had to wear button down shirts and slacks. The familyís lack of money meant that the majority of Micahís wardrobe was only made up of these more formal-looking clothes. He still feels most comfortable like that, although he does own a few pairs of jeans, and wears sweatpants and tank tops in black and white when he doesnít feel his best.
Weapon: Micah favors ranged weapons to make up for his lack of physical strength. His weapon of choice is a recurve bow, painted black. His favorite position in battle is away from the main fight, usually perched in a tree to avoid other people. However, when he canít avoid close combat, he reaches for the bronze hilted dagger at his side and fights as best as he can.
Armor: Micah wears fairly light armor so he wonít be slowed down. Typically, he favors a brown leather chest piece and bracers.
Pet(s): Micah has a Shih Tzu/Jack Russell Terrier mix named Lyle, who acted as his emotional support animal before he arrived at Camp Half Blood.

-Because Micah never felt like he needed anyone besides Claudia and Dominic, his social skills need quite a bit of work, and he hasnít been able to make many friends at Camp.

-Micah is a very moody person by nature, and itís worsened when heís not feeling well.
-Animals are the one thing that can always make Micah smile. No matter how terrible he feels, animals can always cheer him up. Itís one of the reasons that his dog Lyle is so important to him. Without Lyle, heíd be lost.

-Micahís worst fear is being abandoned. He will do whatever he can to prevent the people he loves from leaving him, even if it turns out they never had plans to.
Personality: Never the social butterfly, Micah chooses to focus all of his attention on the few friends he has. These few have his complete loyalty, and are the few that he would never betray for anything. Micah cares a lot for those close to him, but heís never certain how to show it. Micah tends to stay away from most social gatherings, and if heís somehow dragged to one, he sticks close to the edges. As a child, he was used to being coddled by his teachers and given special advantages over the other students. The teachers felt sorry for him, and were impressed by his intelligence. However, this just served to separate him further from his peers. At Camp Half Blood, he was expecting the same treatment, but was rather surprised when he found himself held to the same standards as the others. At first he tried to retaliate, claiming that they didnít understand. Soon he realized it was for the best, since he had to learn how to properly defend himself and those he cares about.
Micahís relationship with Dominic led to trust issues, and Micah finds it difficult to open up to others. His fear of further abandonment causes him to appear clingy to the people he cares about. This usually presents itself by him physically staying as close to the other person as possible. While Micah hates people he doesnít know touching him, he appreciates physical affection from those heís close to. Only Micahís immediate friends know of his softer side, and most people find him unapproachable and a bit rude.
-Toxikinesis: Micah naturally has control of poisons. However, he can only manipulate existing poisons, he cannot create them.
-Death Mist: Micah has been granted control over the Death Mist by his mother. For thirty minutes he can shroud himself and others from monsters. He can use this once a day, and is fairly drained afterwards.
Social Status: In school, Micah was close to two people; Claudia Flores and Dominic Nigel. The three were inseparable, and Micah didnít feel like he needed anyone else in his life. Due to his reputation as ďthe sick kidĒ in school, Micah attracted quite a bit of sympathy from teachers and students alike. However, this didnít mean he had more friends. Most people still stayed away, due to his sarcastic nature and strange interests. Claudia and Dominic were the only two people who didnít pity Micah, and always tried to convince him to do better. At camp, Micah doesnít receive the pity that heís grown accustomed to, and it left him feeling lost at first. If he wasnít there for others to pity, then what was he there for? Micah eventually settled into his position as a rather awkward, stand-offish kid, and began to develop an intense sense of self-preservation. His motherís reputation hasnít helped him much, and he feels like everyone sees him as a burden.
Summer or Year Rounder: Micah stays at camp year round, against his fatherís wishes. Micah decided that him staying away would help his familyís financial situation. He misses his father and uncle, but just wants them to be happy and financially stable.
Years at Camp: Micah came to CHB at the age of fifteen. His first stay was just for the summer, but then he saw it as an opportunity to help his family. He hasnít seen them since.
Life Before Camp: Raised by his father and uncle, Micah managed to live a relatively normal life. Luckily, they had managed to catch his x-linked agammaglobulinemia when he was still young, and he was able to get the proper treatment. Still, that wasnít a cure-all, and he was still in and out of school with various infections, gaining him a reputation as a sympathy case among his teachers and fellow students. The only two people who didnít see him as such were Claudia Flores and Dominic Nigel. Claudia and Micah became friends first, after sharing a desk in second grade. Dominic moved to Galveston while they were all in third grade, and immediately Micah was drawn to him. Claudia physically dragged Micah over to Dominic, and the three began chatting.
As the years progressed, Micah became more aware of how little money his family actually had. His father had picked up what Uncle Ryan referred to as ďa real jobĒ and Ryan himself was picking up extra shifts. During this time, Dominic and Micah began to get closer, prompting jealousy from Claudia. Micah had always had a bit of a childish crush on Dominic and decided it was time he let him know. When he confessed, Dominic seemed okay with it, even happy. The two were soon never seen without the other, and their fellow students began talking. Finally one day they were cornered in the hallway by a group of their classmates, expressing surprise and disgust towards them. Just as the group was closing in, Dominic panicked. He shoved Micah away and began laughing nervously. He told the others that heíd just been leading Micah on, that it had all been a joke. He told them that he couldnít believe Micah had actually been taking it seriously. Stunned and hurt, Micah stood there while the others closed in once again. The first punch took him by surprise, and he slammed back against the wall. After the kids got bored and left, a boy approached him, introducing himself as Arthur. Arthur helped him up, making sure he was okay, before helping him find Claudia. Claudia was horrified and angry at Dominic, going out of her way to hassle him. Meanwhile, Micah found that even the sight of Dominic gave him anxiety, and proceeded to avoid him as much as possible. The small group was falling apart.
Micah took to sneaking out his window at night to go for walks when he couldnít sleep. It helped relieve some of the anxiety from his dissolving social life and his familyís financial situation. Every night it seemed to go the same way. He would slip out his window, walk around for about half an hour and then go back to sleep. However, one night that all changed. He slipped out like usual, and started off down his usual route. Everything was going normally until a figure came out from nowhere, sending him flying against the brick wall behind him. A harpy stood over him, ready to attack. In a burst of adrenaline, Micah whipped out his pocket knife, digging the blade into its chest. It was stunned enough that Micah was able to sprint away into a nearby convenience store. Bent over, trying to get oxygen back into his lungs, Micah didnít notice the person coming up behind him. The hand that landed on his shoulder caused Micah to quickly turn around, back pressed against one of the shelves. In front of him stood Arthur, the boy from school. In the corner of the convenience store, Arthur gave him a quick explanation before the two headed back to Micahís apartment where his father would fill in the gaps. In less than an hour, Micah was laying in the back of his fatherís truck, on the way to Camp Half Blood.
Role-playing Example: Micah woke up in a cold sweat, immediately sitting up in bed. The room spun uneasily around him. One hand cautiously traveled to his mouth, running a finger over his teeth and making sure they were all still there. He couldnít count how many times heíd had that exact nightmare. In it, some dark creature loomed over his shoulder while all of his teeth began to crack and fall out of his mouth. What was it his father always told him about those dreams? Something along the lines of either demonic possession or being scared of losing himself. Not that he necessarily bought into all of that, but he at least was supportive enough of his father to listen.
Light was just beginning to filter its way into the cabin. If he fell asleep now it would be absolutely useless. Micah yawned, flopping back in bed and pulling the blanket tightly around himself. Maybe he could try anyways? He felt absolutely awful, and the nightmare seemed to take away any beneficial aspects of sleep. Not that him feeling awful was anything new. Most of the time he felt bad, and the days when he did far outnumbered the days when he actually felt good. He combed his fingers through his hair, sighing. ďAnother glorious start to my day.Ē he muttered, before sinking back into sleep.
