Summer was never normal. On the reservation, she was trained in Native hunting ways until the rest of the tribe declared her the spawn of evil gods, and forced her and her mother to move away. Far away. Anchorage, Alaska. She had a demigod friend there, named Achak, but he was killed by a hydra before her eyes when she was 8. Her problems only got worse. They started a farm where she became obsessed with horses. She was aware she was a half-blood since she had left the res, but monster attacks increased, until her mother was killed by a sea serpent when she was 10, and a satyr managed to track Summer down, finding her unconscious in the ruins of her house. Once she arrived at Camp Half-Blood, she was revealed to be a daughter of Erebus, unlike the many who thought she was descended from Ares.
