Leo Valdez as a Child || BookishInktober2020

#BookishInktober2020 prompt 2: WISP

After much contemplation and discarding n number of ideas for today’s prompt, I finally settled on this- wisp of hair and wisp of fire.


Let me take a moment here to introduce you all to my boy, Leo! 
Leo Valdez, the demigod son of Hephaestus (the Greek God of Fire and Blacksmiths) and the late Esperanza Valdez (a mortal). He’s sassy, he’s smart and he’s a person who I adore with all my heart!


When he was five, he drew a picture of a flying boat with a bronze dragon head as the masthead in crayon, but it was blown away by the wind. There were so many main characters in Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series, but Leo’s characterization attracted me the most. I know Percabeth rocks, but our seventh wheel here is no less.

If you are looking forward to reading this series, make sure to read the Percy Jackson and The Olympians series first to get acquainted with the Percy Jackson world.
