Dang, you weren't kidding about bringing on a pretty prominent character.

Probably because I'm still transitioning, but Reyna's reminds me a lot of Katniss in terms of physical features (barring the eyes) and attitude (extreme defensive and prickly... but ultimately good-hearted and egalitarian {I guess the ones that caused the split between her and her sister were Amazons} despite her hardships).

And Jason definitely shows his leadership chops, as Dakota noted (a bit funny that he is kinda taking everything in stride despite the knocking-out; I half-expected him to break out the Kool-aid while watching the dispute between everyone else), in being firm but open-minded.

One thing about growing up in the barracks: he gets what a leader is supposed to do. As opposed to Percy -- and I love this about Percy -- in the last battle, doing the lone hero thing and just shouting, "Let's kill stuff!" The boy is a great hero, but not the world's best leader. Jason is much better at understanding how to command. That may be a Jupiter vs. Poseidon thing, too. The ocean is chaotic. The sky is too, but Jupiter is a king as well as a sky god.

ETA: And yes, it's the Amazons. In Seattle. One of Riordan's better extended mythos jokes.
