This happened several times but Valus was just scolded.However when he told his mother all she said was that it was his imagination.Valus was banned from having a phone and was often teased by other students during 6th and 7th grade. So he asked his mother why he couldnt have a phone and all she said was its too dangerous which made valus curious and he pestered her with questions.One of these questions was who was his real father. The only information that he got was that he was a important buisness man that wasn't allowed to visit him but told val that someday he will learn about him. Even though his mother told him he couldnt visit Valus felt sad but cheered up at the thought that he would learn about his father.She never answered his questions about why he couldn't do stuff normal kids could do so he just sulked off to his room where he read in the dark. So one fateful day he visited  his friend , Diego's , house and he insisted he did a prank call.He hesitantly but finally did the call but there was just silence from the other end.He  was walking home when he saw a house on blaze.It took a moment to register that it was his house.He ran and saw that his parents were lying in body bags  that were being zipped up.He broke down with tears in his eyes.The next day he met up with his friend , Rob , who happened to be a satyr.He explained to  Valus why his mother never let him have a phone, that the snake ladies were real, and that the greek myths were real and that valus was a child of a god.

Ok about time i reviewed this, sorry it took so long i've been busy with college papers and my own stories.

I dont see the relevance of the prank call thing unless you put that there to indicate him being responsible for his parents deaths, however the monsters would have tracked him down, not gone after his parents and since you mentioned that he used the phone at his friend's house anyways it really has no relevance.

you're personality needs more added to it, also it contradicts itself a bit, you say he's forgiving but holds a grudge. plus im not gettting much of who he is aside from "loner" you mention him being quiet quite a bit.

please give an explanation of how your flaw is a flaw or fatal. because really loyalty isnt necessarily a flaw.

and I think that's it, sorry for taking so long to critique this.

Also, just to add on to a little something that Axel forgot to mention, we're starting to hold children of the Big Three God's more accountable and their applications are suppose to impress us. So, to sum it up, you're basically going to have to put in a little more effort than this.

Add more to the history, personality and fatal flaw; the physical description looks great however.

If you feel like you've done all you can do, I'd be more than happy to give you some pointers on what to put via PM. If you're not interested in doing more, I'd just suggest choosing a minor god/goddess of the Underworld like Nyx or Thanatos.

I think there's a typo in the age. I'm not a mod, but I thought I should point it out.
