Posted by at 3:59 am in Percy Jackson, Trivia | Permalink

Lightennigtheif_130 August 18 is Percy Jackson’s birthday, so to celebrate, we have a Trivia Quiz. How well do you know the birthday boy/demi-god? You can find the answers in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. I’m pretty sure you knew that already, but I thought I would say it just in case you’ve been living on another planet for the last 10 years. :)

  1. Who is Annabeth’s mother?
  2. Who is Clarisse’s father?
  3. What sort of creature is Mr. Brunner?
  4. What sort of creature is Grover?
  5. Two words: What is the name of Percy’s boarding school?
  6. How many Olympian gods are there?
  7. What type of tree is on top of Half-Blood Hill?
  8. What is Mr. D’s full name?
  9. What sort of animal head hangs above Ares’ cabin?
  10. Name one thing that Hermes is the god of.
  11. Who is the wife of Zeus?
  12. What is the pattern on Mr. D’s shirt?
  13. Where do Percy and his mother like to go on vacation?
  14. Three words: according to Percy’s mom, how did his dad disappear?
  15. Who is Dionysus’ father?
  16. What is Dionysus restricted from?
  17. What part of the Big House seems mysterious to Percy?
  18. What does Percy use to defeat Clarisse when she tries to bully him?
  19. What lives in the canoe lake?
  20. Aside from pinochle, what is another game Dionysus considers the greatest human achievement?
  21. What is Smelly Gabe’s last name?
  22. What sort of creature tried to attack young Percy when he was taking a nap in daycare?
  23. Who was Zeus’ mother, who hid him from Kronos?
  24. Chiron says there is a statue of what Greek mythological figure in Rockefeller Center?
  25. Who is the Greek lord of the dead?

If you have been living on another planet, definitely leave me a message in the Comments. I totally want to hear from you! If any of these have you stumped, here are the answers.
