Who Are Castor And Pollux In Percy Jackson?

Castor And Pollux, Percy Jackson

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is finally with us on Disney+. To celebrate, we wanted to explore characters linked to everyone’s favourite (or least favourite) Camp Director, Mr D – Dionysus. We’re talking about minor demigods, Castor and Pollux, the twin sons of the wine god.

There is not a lot of information on Castor and Pollux as they are only minor characters. Castor appears in two books and is mentioned in a third. Pollux appears in three books. Both appear in The Lightning Thief.

Castor is first mentioned by Percy when he sees him and Pollux in the strawberry fields. Later, they are seen sitting at table twelve, the table that is designated for the demigod children of Dionysus (Mr D). We’ve spoken about how demigods have shaped the wine god and spoken about his children. But this is just about the twins.

So, it is unknown who Castor and Pollux’s mother is. It’s not Dionysus’ wife, Ariadne. He’s too loyal to his wife to have that many affairs. Anyway, in the world of Percy Jackson, every god has some level of danger as do some offspring.

Pollux Loses Castor

Castor is killed during the Battle of the Labyrinth, where he fought for Camp Half-Blood. At his funeral, Pollux is so upset over his brother’s death that he is unable to finish his eulogy. He then bursts into tears when he lights the funeral pyre.

During the Last Olympian, Percy has a vision of Mr D saying that he’s lost one son and cannot afford to lose another.
