Percy Jackson and the Olympians Cast and Character Guide (2024)

“Percy Jackson and the Olympians” has arrived on Disney+ and it’s bringing a ton of familiar faces with it. So, if you found yourself recognizing them, but not quite placing them in your head, we’ve got you.

Here’s the thing about Greek mythology: there are a lot of gods. And, as “Percy Jackson” proves, they have a lot of kids. The series not only introduces a new take on Greek gods but also brings their children — known as demigods — into the fray.

Read our complete “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” cast and character guide to see who’s who at Camp Half-Blood and on Mount Olympus.

Dior Goodjohn (Clarisse La Rue) – Obviously, a child of Ares is going to be a little … intense, to say the least.
