I love so many of the characters! I guess I’m going to say Percy. He’s a kid who thought there was always something wrong with himself, but he was definitely more than that when he was in the right world. I love that the color blue means so much to his mom and him. He always thinks of that even when they’re apart. So sweet!
Annabeh is my favorite because she’s brave, intelligent, and the daughter of Athena! Leo is probably my second favorite. He was really funny. 🙂
Not a particular character but I love the creatures/beasts. Love the variety and the descriptions of them. Mythology has always been a love of mine ever since elementary school.
Sara your blog is kicking my ass, so this might be in the wrong slot! But my favorite character is Nico!
LOL, you’re all good, Kylie!
Annabeth Chase because I like her so much, she’s a strong female character and a great friend
I love Annabeth Chase–she’s a demigod and daughter of Athena and so smart and quick-witted too. Love her dialogue.
Although I like a lot of characters from the Percy Jackson series, my favorite character is Percy. He is brave, funny and loyal.
Anna Beth, for sure is my favorite. She’s a great female character too looks up to.
My favorite character would have to be Nico because he’s so sassy and wonderful!
My sister favorite character from the Percy Jackson series is Nico & Annabeth since she enjoy their chapters the most as where Nico she enjoy watching him grow as a a person and for Annabeth she is smart and tough and not just Percy girlfriend.
“Tell us who your favorite character from the Percy Jackson series is, and why!” Percy Jackson, of course, because without him there would be no series!
I could never choose between all of the amazing characters but I do love Annabeth very much!
My dear sweet cinnamon roll Nico. That sweet child has been through so much!! How could you not love him?
Anna Beth chase. She is such a badass
Annabeth is a great role model for my girls but I do like Leo
I’m going to choose the author, Rick Riordan as my favorite character. When you think of all the fun and adventure he’s provided to kids and families all over the world I think he qualifies as a real hero in my book.
I like Percy and Annabeth.
My favorite character is character is a tough choice, but it would have to be Reyna. She’s such a strong willed and determined leader for Camp Jupiter; such a strong individual in general!
