Alright, so first thing that pops out is the apparent talent of "building machines". Since you're an Athena kid, you're going to need to be more specific. Is this a general, "I understand how they work, and if given the parts and a manual I can build them" or a "I can rebuild an engine" or "I can build anything." Because those are all very different levels. And machines are remarkably different from one another and usually pretty complex on their own. And you're thirteen with no reason stated why you're good at building machines. (The only heritage that can get away with being able to build any machine well, without any prior training or justification would be Hephaestus.)

(There's some general spelling and punctuation things.)

Your personality is lacking. 
How do you act around people? Are you more shy or reserved, or are you outgoing? Are you stubborn? Laid back? How do you act in tough situations? 

And for your fatal flaw, you're thinking of "Perfectionist." Or maybe "Completionist." But they easily go hand in hand.

I would copy and paste this into Microsoft Word to help with the spelling and punctuation.

You mention a sister, which further implies a step mother--yet I see neither of these mentioned in the history. Please do so.

You say his father taught him in sword fighting, so why doesn't he have a sword to bring along with him? I mean, it just seems like he would. In fact, looking at your personality, you mention he has a sword. So...where is it? My character's a perfectionist, too, though. xP

I still see nothing about his sister, and the mention of the stepmother is minimal. When did his dad marry her? What's the dads relationship with his son? Did he treat him any differently after he married? Why didn't the dad keep his son from running away when the stepmother told him to leave? All good questions.

And seriously, the spelling and grammar. Please fix it.

Well, I see you edited 'Georgia,' at least. I guess I'll ignore the other grammar stuff, just try to fix it up in actual posts so people can understand you better.

I don't really have anything else to say, except I did notice this: I know not everyone follows the typical Athena child look, with the blond hair and grey eyes, and I can understand that sometimes, like if they're a different race and it would kind of stick out in their family...but you're a Japanese American with...green eyes? I'm not even sure that's genetically possible. I don't mean to be picky, it just feels rather off to me. Why not dark brown to follow with his Japanese heritage, or grey to follow with Athena's? I'm just saying.

Some notes from Ceru:

History: Feels really short. See Personality/FF. Oh, and it says he has a little sister, but it makes absolutely no mention of her here. Add that in, who is she?

Physical Appearance: When you have a black parent and a white parent, the children’s skin coloration is called “mulatto”. Pretty creamy-tan color. Just a note. (this may be considered offensive by a few people, but the stigma's mostly gone by now, with the acceptance of mixed families.) Also, I’m wondering how muscular a 13-year-old can be… I remember 8th grade boys, and they weren’t really MUSCULAR… I don’t think they have the body mass yet to be legitimately muscular. But I suppose he could still be strong.

Personality/FF: So, I’m guessing his FF is “doesn’t trust easily,” or whatever. I’d like to know what, in his History, has caused him to have trust issues. I think the contradictory-ness of the first two sentences might actually be saying “he’s a loner because people don’t like him, but he doesn’t actually like being alone.” That’s kind of what’s coming across to me. So maybe he could just word that better (though, that does contradict a bit with the “not trusting people” thing. So I’d just ask him to explain it better, maybe present these ideas to him and ask which he means). Oh, and about the FF: the last sentence does not make sense to me. Why would people who become friends with him have a good possibility of dying “within a few hours”? Does he have some magical death curse?

Talents: Does he have street smarts because he’s spent a lot of time on the streets? I know it means more like general smarts of being in the world, but still… I feel like that should be explained in History.

Random Side Comment: FINALLY a normal Ares kid. Bonus points.
