She grew up with a loving mom in a nice house, but when she turned 6 she started having extreme night terrors, which weren't always bad. When she was sleeping she would usually have 'dreams' where she saw things happening. She saw monsters and people with swords and a special camp. Her mom knew she was demigod but didn't want her to find out, so she never told her. She was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia when she was 10, but never had extreme behavioral problems in school. The 'nightmares' got worse and she saw wars, people dying, people she didn't even know, and eventually it started happening when she was awake too. When her twelfth birthday neared, it got worse and worse, until her gym teacher attacked her and she found out one of her friends was a satyr, who guided her to camp.
