Thomas Landers was a respected and successful businessman. He worked in many different businesses and made a good name for himself. Thomas was also a good-looking man, one that many women were attracted by. One of these women was Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty herself.
Thomas had never felt so smug about himself in all of his self obsessed life. So you know the idea, they slept together and a few weeks later after dating, Aphrodite discovered she was pregnant. She told Thomas, who was completely outraged. He refused to have a child; he was young and didn't want to be tied down to a baby. However, Aphrodite was not going to allow him to reject their baby.
So after nine months, Amber was born April 12th, 1995. Aphrodite left and Thomas was left with a child he didn't want. But he knew he could easily keep her and handle her. He’d pay nannies with his vast amount of money and so he did. Throughout Amber’s childhood, she was raised by an endless amount of nannies.
Amber however had a slight advantage when it came to monsters and such as Thomas bragged to her at the age of 6, that her mother was a Greek goddess. He also informed each nanny she had, that Amber should be taught Greek myths. Despite Thomas’s reluctance to have a child, he still made sure she had everything she needed to be a Demigod.
But Amber got angry at her father and the fact he rarely acknowledged her existence. So she started to rebel from the age of about 11. She’d whine and moan, she’d make life difficult for her nannies as all she ever craved was her father’s attention. Thomas had enough; at the age of 14 he shipped Amber off to the nearest boarding school.
Amber felt so angry and betrayed by her father. Things changed for her slightly as she was one of those "popular bitchy" girls. She had a reputation to fufil and she would go to any means to fufil it. So at the age of about 15, she developed anorexia. She’d starve herself so much that she didn't even feel hungry any more and gained very little weight.
Amber made sure that there was no reason for her reputation to be question, she was one of those perfect girls everyone envied. It was at about this age; Amber got attacked by a Hellhound. Amber never realised that her only friend was really a Satyr in disguise, carefully watching her. Luckily Amber knew what to do and the Satyr had a spare sword.
Amber used the sword to defeat the monster, using the help of the Satyr. Once that was all over with, her friend explained about Camp Half Blood, one specially made for Demigods. Amber quickly left her father a phone message, explaining about the camp and what had happened. So with that, Amber and the Satyr made their way to the camp.
