Alex has an amazing sense of humor, enjoy making people laugh and feel good about themselves. However, sometimes the son of Demeter rather be by myself, usually reading in the library or sitting in the fields of strawberry and grapes. His personality type is an ENFP which means I'm an extrovert at heart.

Alex can manipulate plant life for five posts with a three cool down between each usage. He can control plants that are in a ten foot radius of himself. The largest he can control is a 1m30 foot plant.
Blessed Fertility: If Alex comea across an area that is barren and is unable to yield any produce, he can use his powers to make the soil fertile again. He can do this twice in one topic with a three topic cool down. The effect will be permanent so this will require a good amount of energy. The size of the field can't be no larger than twenty by seven field.
Abundant Harvest: He can give a person the feeling of being full and content. This lasts about two posts and will need a five post cool down.

Social Status: Semi-social lite
Summer or Year Rounder: Year rounder
Years at Camp: Five years
Life Before Camp: Alexander was born on Mount Olympus in Demeter's cabin then shipped off to his father. There Alex was raised and taken care of by him and soon to be step-mother. As a little child, Alex enjoyed playing in the dirt as well as helping my mother water the plants around the house. Every year doing grade school for Mother's day, we would make flowers for their mothers. For him, his flowers always seemed to out last all the kids' plants. Alex's father said that he had a real green thumb. Years passed past and my identity about himself changed. In high school, He started to develop feelings for my best friend, who turned out to be a satyr. He told Alex about camp thus, claiming that he was a son of Demeter. At first, Alex didn't believe him, but slowly did he realize that, in fact, he was a demigod. Alex's dad told him how they met and what she had told him before leaving me with him. After about a week, Alex agreed to travel up north to Camp Half-Blood. Since Alex hate flying, we decided to take a little road trip to camp, stopping here and there until they arrived at the boarders.
Role-playing Example:  The son of Demeter walked through the Camp Half-Blood  grounds, smiling at the unnatural greenery. The outside, mortal world was cold and barren, well most of it anyway. He heard about the weather report on the eastern side of the Country, winter storms raging, ice everywhere. Demeter must've been in her bad moods. As Alex continued his walk toward his cabin,  he watched as my fellow campers talked with each other; laughing, fusing, things of that nature. Smirking, Alex shook his head slowly as he nearly tripped over a stone. Gods I hoped no one saw that... Blood flushed to his cheeks, the idea of being embarrassed in front of these demigods washed over him. His pace quickened as he saw the grass covered roof of my cabin. Finally! Alex exclaimed in thought. After about another five minutes, Alex was there in his beloved cabin. It reminded him of a greenhouse sort of...the walls were tan brown with tomato vines growing on the walls... Perfection. Alex smiled and sat on his bunk, took his shoes off, and fell asleep, staring down at his white pillow. Closing his eyes, the African American demigod slowly drifted off to sleep, dreaming of wheat fields and Olympus.

... Is there a reason you randomly switch to first-person point of view mid-section/mid-sentence in some areas? If that's an accident, you should probably go through and make sure it's all consistent.

Was his god parent gift bought or from a solstice? 

Abilities:
- For the growth aura, early what area?
- Translate the 5 minutes into number of posts.
- Plant names: A lame name? Common name?

Powers:
- For the first power, cooldown should be equal to/greater than usage duration.
- How would he form the wheat monster? (And wouldn't the size of this contradict his being able to control up to a 1.3m large plant?)
- You also say 1m30foot, but those are from two different systems of measurement?
- For the second power, 20 by 7 what?
- Bump up the cooldown for the second power, too.

LBC:
- When did he first meet the satyr? Had the satyr been assigned to his school/area by coincidence?

His being more powerful in the spring/summer should be in his Abilities section. (Also, reduce this to about 15%.)
