When Percy Jackson fans think Mythomagic, they usually think of the production company that Rick and Becky Riordan set up. However, that is not what we’re talking about in this post. No, we’re going to discuss the inspiration behind the name.
There is not a ton of information on the game outside of a handful of cards, which include:
The game is also based on Greek Mythology, and the rules are complicated.
Nico Di Angelo and Frank Zhang are former players.
After the death of Bianca, Percy gives Nico the figurine she found of Hades, but he doesn’t accept it as he blames Jackson for his sister’s death. However, he does end up taking the figurine later. It’s also through this that Percy realises that Hades is Nico (and Bianca)’s father.
The Sun And The Star
During the Sun and the Star events, Nico tells his boyfriend, Will Solace, that Mythomagic has been around since at least the 1940s, and it was a game he played back then, too.
In a dream, Bianca, her, and Nico’s mother, Maria, appear and give Nico a Zeus figure and his game stats. Maria comments that she remembers how much Nico loved playing the same when he was a young boy and how it was to separate him and the game.
Mythomagic cards were created as promo material for the upcoming Percy Jackson and the Olympians Disney+ television series of the three lead characters.
