Yancy Academy was where his troubles seem to be worse than usual.He has only one friend at the school, Grover Underwood, who is also Percy's best friend and who Percy often protects from bullies (little does he know that Grover is actually a satyr in disguise sent to get Percy to Camp Half-Blood quickly). Percy arrives back at the school and hears Grover and Mr.In the fifth grade, Percy accidentally fired a war cannon which hit the school bus at the Saratoga Battlefield.
His mother would tell him that his father was “lost at sea”.
When he was a toddler, his mother married Gabe Ugliano, hoping his horrid smell will mask Percy from the monsters that would hunt him.
Percy's mother arrives soon afterwards and tells him that they can go to his favourite beach in Montauk for the whole weekend.
Percy, happy that finally something good has happened, packs his things and leaves, but not before seeing Gabe get hit in the butt by the door when he does a weird hand gesture he saw Grover use.
Nevertheless, his mother took them both in Gabe's prized possession, a 1978 Camaro and began driving at daring speeds through a blinding hurricane, and it was blasted off the road by a bolt of lightning.
As Grover, Percy, and his mom tried to get out, they saw the Minotaur, a half-man, half-bull monster, who had been chasing them.At the same time, there is a voice (that Percy describes as so deep and evil that it turned his blood to ice) egging the two animals on. He and his mother are shocked to see Grover outside their cabin, without pants (which Percy recommends not to see that) coming to him and his mom, telling them to leave.Percy was confused at his friend's appearance, as he was a goat from the waist down and revealed himself to be a satyr.During their night in Montauk, Percy had a vivid dream.The dream features two animals, which is a horse and a bird attacking each other.He was the temporary host of the Egyptian goddess Nekhbet.
