Benjamin Carlson was born to Somnus and Lisa Carlson on the 6th December. He grew up with a depressive mum, who mistreated him and hit him and abused him. He hated that, and when social services found out, they took him away to a Children's Home. He lived with his new adoptive parents, Samuel and Lilly Jones. He loved living with them and had a perfectly normal life until he turned thirteen. He was attacked.
Benjamin was attacked by a harpy on the way to school. He had no way of fighting it so just ran for his life. After he reached a dump, he realised the harpy was no longer following him. it had been killed by one of Lupa's wolves. The wolf explained about Camp Jupiter, but first took him to the Wolf House where he trained for a year. He was then taken to Camp, where Benjamin was claimed and joined a cohort.
