Derek O’Connor lived life as normal as possible, working as a Veterinary Surgeon in Northern Ireland. However his life completely changed when one day a woman came in with a Pit-bull with rabies. It was common; Derek thought to see dogs with rabies. However this one dog seemed different, it seemed calmer around this woman. He realised how mesmerising he found her, a feeling he hadn't experienced with a woman in a long time.
Through this appointment, Derek and this woman (who called herself Alexis) began to see more of each other. After a few months of this, they began dating. Derek cared for her very much, bragging about this beautiful Alexis at work to his colleagues. Alexis came to Derek at work one day to tell him she was pregnant, Derek was overjoyed by this news, feeling as though his family was complete.
However Alexis decided to tell him the truth, she couldn't lie to him no more. She told him how she was really Lyssa and how their child would be a demigod. Derek was devastated at this news and become almost mad with grief when their son was born and she left.
Derek knew he couldn’t stand to keep their son, as it would always be a reminder of Lyssa. So he left Kellin at an orphanage, tucked up in a basket. Kellin grew up in the orphanage with a pessimistic outlook; he was different from the other children the workers noticed.
Kellin kept to himself as he disliked most of the children at the orphanage, he knew he’d get easily angry with them. Most of them kept away from Kellin, branding him as the "Angry kid". Kellin managed to stay hidden from monsters for a while, due to the fact he was surrounded by other kids. Kellin only made one friend at the Orphanage, a new girl called Holly Parks. They both seemed different and Holly didn't annoy Kellin like the other kids.
By the time both Holly and Kellin were 13, they got attacked at school by a Dracnae. Kellin had no idea what was going on but Holly seemed to expect this. She threw two twin daggers at Kellin which he caught instantly. Holly helped Kellin defeat the monster, which Kellin was shocked he could do. Holly then explained to Kellin that she came from a camp where kids like Holly and Kellin could be trained. She explained everything there was to know.
Kellin however wasn't ready for camp, in his opinion or Holly’s so they waited a while, Holly helping Kellin keep monsters at bay. By the time Kellin was 16, they decided that they waited long enough. Holly and Kellin made their way to camp, Kellin felt like he could finally admit his feelings to her. However just as they were at Camp’s boundaries, a Harpy caught up to them and Holly was killed saving Kellin. She told Kellin to go through without her, as her last wish. Kellin went through to camp where he was claimed as a son of Lyssa.
