Demigod Children Of Hephaestus


Hephaestus, the god of the forge, might not be the most handsome of the Olympian gods, but he has a few demigod children running around. For this post, we’re only covering his Camp Half-Blood children. His other offspring who have not been to Camp Half-Blood do not count.

So, let’s get into it!

Charles Beckendorf

Of all the demigod children Hephaestus had at Camp Half-Blood, two of the most famous were Charles Beckendorf and Leo Valdez. Beckendorf died during the early events of The Last Olympian, where he was killed in an explosion on the cruise ship the Princess Andromeda while protecting Percy. At the time of his death, he was dating Silena Beauregard, a daughter of Aphrodite.

Beckendorf, as he was commonly known, did not use his first name very much. The only person allowed to call him anything other than his last name was Silena, who called him Charlie.

Leo Valdez

The second most famous demigod child of Hephaestus is Leo Valdez, who arrived at Camp Half-Blood after Beckendorf’s death. He was claimed rather quickly by his father and complained when someone said his father was ‘Vulcan’, the Roman personality of Hephaestus.

Leo fit right in with his half-siblings. He even achieved something that Beckendorf could not; being able to tame the metal dragon in the forest. Leo affectionately called it Festus.

Jake Mason, Nyssa Barrera And Others

Another child of Hephaestus is Jake Mason, who unwillingly took on the mantle of head counsellor after Beckendorf died. He was later seriously hurt. Leo eventually took his place as head counsellor.

Hephaestus had demigod daughters too. One known one is Nyssa Barrera, the first of Leo’s sisters. After Jake was injured, Nyssa became counsellor until he healed. Later, the mantle went to Leo. Nyssa is his only known demigod daughter at Camp Half-Blood.

The god also had other demigod sons named Harley, Christopher and Shane.
