I have always been a connoisseur of mythology and apart from high elves and dragons, there is another mythological creature that I find intriguing: demigods, specifically the ones depicted in ancient Greek mythology. Essentially, a demigod is a being that is a hybrid between a mortal and a god with one parent that is mortal and one parent that is a god. In terms of powers, a demigod is many times more powerful than any mortal, but not as strong as a pure-blooded god, sometimes having abilities that symbolize their divine parent such as fire manipulation, sky manipulation, or something else entirely. And here is an interesting thought, just because one of a demigod’s parents is mortal, it does not necessarily mean they have to be human. I wondered what kind of demigod could be created if it was born from a god and another mortal being that is not human. In the second volume of my series, The Young Guardians and the Great Darkness, it is revealed that one of the Young Guardians is a demigod, a fact that will probably make them the strongest of the team. I won’t say who it is, but it will come as a surprise.
