My point is you heroes never change. You accuse us gods of being vain. You should look at yourselves. You take what you want, use whoever you have to, and then you betray everyone around you. So you’ll excuse me if I have no love for heroes. They are a selfish, ungrateful lot.
–Mr. D, discussing demigods with Percy Jackson in The Titan’s Curse
Dionysus (or “Mr. D”, as he prefers to be called) was appointed Head Counselor of Camp Half-Blood by Zeus himself, as punishment for his wild behavior and embarrassing personal habits. Zeus sent him to the camp under orders to “dry out”, and so the God of Wine is, most unfortunately, forbidden from imbibing the substance of which he is patron deity, as well as any other form of alcohol.
Mr. D still has a few centuries left on his “sentence”, which makes him irritable, to say the least. His favorite activities are playing pinochle outside the Big House with Chiron, being surly, and forgetting campers’ names on purpose.
