Bob the Titan and Small Bob
This a picture of Bob the Titan and Small Bob.Bob the Titan helps guide and rescue Percy and Annabeth as they make their way through Tartarus to shut the Doors of Death. Small Bob is Bob the Titan's cat that they find while they are searching for the Doors of Death.When they finally find the Doors of Death, Small Bob turns into a saber tooth tiger and fends off the monsters as Percy and Annabeth ride the elevator to the modern world where they meet up with Leo, Jason, Hazel, Frank and Piper and defeat Pasiphaë.
This picture reminds me of the River Phlegethon. When Percy and Annabeth get into Tartarus, they have to drink the fire water in the river so that they can be healed from the wounds of their fall.
Katoblebs are huge dogs with poisonous breath.One of them breathes in Hazel's face, making her pass out and get really sick when they stop in Venice.They go to the only God that could possibly heal her,Triptolemus, the god of farming.But, he makes Frank go on some kind of quest to have him heal her, so he goes and kills off every single Katoblep in the city. Once Triptolemus heals Hazel, they go on to find the Doors of Death.
Hazel meets Hecate in the very beginning of the book when she sees her horse,Arion. They go to this mountain where Hecate is performing her magic. When she sees Hazel she tells her that she is going to have learn how to control the mist,a magical veil that separates the mortal world from the things that demigods and gods can see that are magical, to save all her friends in the last battle. She ends up learning how to control the mist and saves her friends.
