Chiron is the activities director at Camp Half Blood, and also Percy and Grover's Latin teacher at Yancy Academy. Chiron organized the capture the flag game, which is when Percy's father claimed him. So, without Chiron, Percy might have never been claimed as the son of Poseidon, the god of the sea.
Luke is the son of Hermes, who is the god of thieves, and also the gods of messengers. Luke trains Percy how to fight at Camp Half Blood. When they were training, Percy beats him in a training fight.

He then leaves to help the only one alive that will destroy Mount Olympus.
Zeus is the god of the sky, and Percy's uncle. Zeus blamed Percy for stealing his Lightning Bolt after Poseidon claimed him as his son. Zeus declares that there will be a war unless Percy receives his bolt by the summer solstice. which gives Percy 10 days after he is claimed to give it to Zeus.
Hades is the god of the underworld. He also blamed Percy for stealing his power symbol. He also has monsters sent to destroy Percy throughout the book. Hades hates ALL half bloods, which is why he sends monsters to kill them.
Ares is the god of war. He meets Percy at a dinner, and pays for their dinner, in return for them getting his war shield from an abandoned amusement park. He needs them to get the shield because he left it there when he an Aphrodite were on a date even though Aphrodite is married to a Greek god. Ares loves war , which is why he stole Zeus's Lightning Bolt from Luke, who stole it from Luke who stole it from Zeus. Ares then tricks Percy, Annabeth, and Grover, and gets his butt kicked if a fight with Percy.
Poseidon is the god of the sea. He is also Percy's father. The big three, which include Poseidon, Hades, and Zeus made a promise never to have a child with a mortal, since they are so much more powerful than any other half bloods. But, Poseidon and Zeus broke that promise. Poseidon claimed Percy when Clarisse and the rest of the Ares cabin had him on the ground while they were about to hurt him with a wound that might never heal. So, Poseidon showed Percy that he really dose care about him by saving his life. But by claiming him, he was then blamed for the stealing of the Lightning Bolt.
