Story so Far:
Jason and Diana meet at last! All seemed well between the siblings. They began to catch up, and Diana laments how she didn’t know about him before this. Jason confesses that he knew of her existence for many years. Catching Diana by surprise, he strikes. Grail, the source behind the mysterious energy drained bodies, appears. To Diana’s dismay, Jason and Grail both begin to attack her. The trap Diana is ensnared in grows deeper in complexity.
Jason was a quick learner. He picked up on everything as soon as he tried. His powers blossomed early, and Glaucus feared for him. Glaucus knew that he could not stop Jason from doing what he wished, but the man did his best to provide him with safety and the knowledge he would need to survive. This meant Hercules, a fellow son of Zeus, would be Jason’s teacher. Glaucus told Jason the truth about his past and his lineage, and much to his surprise, Jason didn’t care that Glaucus was not his father. After all of the years they had been with one another, that was enough to bind them together for Jason. What turned Jason against Diana? What does Grail want with the children of the gods?
