Which Percy Jackson cabin do you belong in?

Have you ever wondered which Percy Jackson cabin fits you the best? With the new fully released series, more and more half bloods are waiting for their time to be claimed by a God. If you are a demigod and are still uncertain, this article is tailor-made for you and can give you a pretty good idea of what to expect! Just delve into the descriptions of the thirteen cabins and uncover the one that resonates most with your essence.

Cabin One - Zeus, the god of the sky, lightning, and thunder

Zeus' Cabin is a big marble building that looks like a mausoleum. It has strong columns and shiny bronze doors that make it seem like lightning is flashing. Inside, the ceiling looks like clouds and lightning, and there's a statue of Zeus in the middle. There is no furniture, but there are golden eagle statues in little spaces along the walls.

Zeus' children are known to be natural leaders because their father is the king of the gods. They are extremely ambitious, persistent, intelligent, and goal-oriented. They are often labeled as "control-freaks" because they like to be in control of every situation. They are friendly most of the time, but when angered, they erupt like a storm. Children of Zeus are often drawn to storms, finding comfort in the sounds of lightning and thunder, and the intense emotions they evoke.

A piece of advice: If you are thinking you are a son/daughter of Zeus, be careful, you tend to attract a lot of monsters.

Cabin Two - Hera, the goddess of marriage, family, and birth 

Hera's Cabin, crafted elegantly from marble and adorned with peacock symbols, is notably more graceful than Zeus's Cabin. It is dedicated to honoring Hera, the queen of the gods. As the goddess of marriage, Hera upholds her union with Zeus, which prevents her from having any demigod offspring.

This essentially means you cannot be a demigod son/daughter of Hera, sorry!

Cabin Three - Poseidon, the god of the Sea, Storms, Earthquakes, Droughts, and Horses.

Poseidon's cabin is characterized by its sturdy, low-profile and strategic positioning facing the sea, with rough gray stone walls adorned with seashell and coral fragments. Inside, the cabin features luminescent walls resembling abalone, bronze hippocampi hanging from the ceiling, aquatic plants on the windowsills, and a large fountain enabling campers to send messages to Iris.

Poseidon’s children are known for having a deep passion for water. They usually love the ocean and anything that involves being close to water. They tend to not like following rules or obeying just because they are told to, just as the ocean does not like to be contained. They are friendly, loyal, and usually have a good sense of humor. Poseidon's children can also experience mood swings and be unpredictable, just like the sea. They also tend to  have an outgoing and welcoming personality, but hey, do not try to irritate them: testing their patience is ill-advised, for it is not inexhaustible, and the consequences may be regrettable.

Cabin Four - Demeter, the goddess of harvest and agriculture

The cabin is constructed with a roof made of growing grass and walls adorned with tomato vines and flowers. Its exterior is a light shade of brown. Inside, the floor is grassy, with an oak tree serving as the central support. The sleeping arrangements include wooden cots with pillows filled with magically enhanced wheat for comfort.

Demeter’s children are known for loving nature. They are free-spirited, kind, patient, competent, nurturing, and loving. They usually have a shy personality, but they can be fiercely protective when their loved ones are threatened. Their connection to nature infuses them with a sense of peace and harmony, and they often find solace and joy in the beauty of the natural world. They are usually seen as motherly figures, people usually seek comfort in Demeter’s children. 

While their generosity, patience, and kindness are admirable traits, it is wise to avoid intentionally provoking them. Otherwise, you may wake up to find poison ivy flourishing in your sleeping bag.

Cabin Five - Ares, the god of war

The outside of the cabin looks old with red paint that's been worn by the weather. There is barbed wire on the roof and a stuffed boar's head above the door. But be careful, because there are landmines around the entrance. Inside, it looks like a military place where soldiers sleep. There are small beds, a kitchen connected to a busy living room, and a big closet full of weapons.

It is easy to recognize a son or daughter of Ares. They tend to exude bravery, power, and confidence wherever they are. The children of Ares are known for their immense courage and strong temper, and they are typically assertive, energetic, and independent, with a natural inclination towards impulsiveness and courage. They thrive on competition, displaying honesty and passion in their pursuits, but may struggle with patience and impulsivity. Adventurous by nature, they eagerly embrace new experiences and challenges. They tend to think they are naturally better than others. Children of Ares can be hot-headed, arrogant and stubborn. They don't take things lying down, they aren't afraid of practically anything, they hate taking orders and tend to start fights for silly reasons. Still, they are very protective of those they love and would do anything to keep them well. Ironically, since their personality is usually quite the opposite, they tend to get along very well with children of Aphrodite.

If you want advice, try to stay in a good position with these demigods, or you might end up with a spear pointed at your face.

Cabin Six - Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war

Cabin 6 is a stone structure with blue and gold paint and a stone owl above the entrance. Inside, it boasts shelves stocked with scrolls and books, a holographic table for battle planning, weaponry, personalized armor, and bunks pushed aside to create more space for activities.

Athena's children are known for their intelligence, strategic skills, creativity and courage. They tend to be trustworthy, like to lead groups, and have good ideas. They are also proud people and do not like to admit to their mistakes. If they do not excel at something right away, they get frustrated and give up on what they are doing. They can be messy at times, but they accept the mess they have created and can function well in it. While they may seem distant from society at times, it is not because they lack social skills. Rather, Athena's children are just selective about their interactions and prefer meaningful companions for their life. In fact, if they are called upon to discuss a subject they like/understand, an endless discourse on the subject will ensue.These people also tend to work well under pressure, they hate being ignored, they always want to show their responsibility (even unconsciously), and some people may have the impression of them being stuck up.

Cabin Seven - Apollo, the god of archery, art, medicine and the Sun and light

The building initially appears ordinary but shines like gold in sunlight. Inside, it's modest with bunk beds, a central cot for the injured, cedar beams, and white walls with minimal decoration. The scent is of clean linen and dried sage. Flower pots on the windowsill hold yellow blooms from Delos, while a bookshelf contains reference materials about Apollo for new campers. Numerous flower pots filled with red and purple hyacinths add color to the space. 

Apollo's children are known for their aptitude for art, especially music and poetry. They also tend to be quite sociable and communicative. Furthermore, they love helping and advising their friends, always indirectly bringing insights from their own lives. Apollo children tend to act on emotion rather than reason. They are extremely emotional people. Apollo kids always use sarcasm in all dialogues. They also have a special connection with sunrises and sunsets because they resemble a beautiful painting and obviously, showcases the sun (they take pictures of it whenever they can). They also love quality time with their friends and value nature around them. Children of Apollo tend to get along with children of Hermes, as Hermes was the inventor of Apollo's precious lyre.

Cabin Eight - Artemis the goddess of hunting and wildlife

Artemis's cabin shines like silver at night, as if it's reflecting the moon. In the daytime, it looks like a regular cabin. It's decorated with paintings and carvings of wild animals, mostly stags.

Artemis has made a vow to eternally remain a maiden, which means she has no children. Generally, her cabin at the camp remains unoccupied. However, the goddess is accompanied by a group of gifted followers with excellent ranged capabilities and hunting skills called the Hunters of Artemis, and occasionally these young women visit Camp Half-Blood. Whenever this visit occurs, there is a traditional, not-so-friendly capture the flag game. The Hunters are currently leading the Campers roughly 47-0 in the capture the flag game (ouch!).

If you're a girl, of course, and you think your destiny is to become a hunter of Artemis, it is important to keep a few things in mind as you seek her out for recruitment. Huntresses must show bravery and a good heart. Furthermore, you have to promise eternal loyalty to Artemis, which means no boys. Ever. Additionally, you gain immortality upon being recruited.

Cabin Nine - Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths and fire.

The cabin looks like a small factory or a big camper van with a chimney. Its door is round and heavy, and opens with noisy gears. Inside, it is messy, filled with lots of machines and a tunnel underneath. The beds are made of metal and can be folded up. Even though it does not look like it, there exists a basement with tools and weapons underneath, accessible through a fire pole. 

The children of Hephaestus have a natural gift for building things; they are true mechanics. They have a more reserved personality and prefer to be alone, or in the company of a machine. If they could choose to be alone for all their school work, they would. Despite this, they have a friendly side. They are good listeners and can be very funny, but only the people closest to them tend to know this. They are also friends for life, who can always be counted on. Hephaestus' children are truly passionate about robotics or architecture, and since they were children they liked building toys and more complex things. They also always feel out of place, as if they do not belong. Hesphaestus' children are quite peaceful and do not like violence.

Cabin Ten - Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty

The Aphrodite cabin is quite pretty with its painted roof, pillars, and blue-and-white checkered deck. The place smells like strong perfume. The walls are pink with white around the windows. The beds have pastel blue and green curtains. Boys and girls have separate areas. Each camper has their own storage chest with their name on it. The beds are decorated with pictures of famous people. 

For the children of the goddess of love, socializing is essential. They usually take a long time to get ready and they value beauty and love more than anything. They often fall in love quickly and enjoy being the center of attention or “the hot topic in other people's conversations.” They are sometimes considered “frivolous” because they care a lot about their appearance and love to gossip about who is dating who, but many have admirable characteristics, such as a good heart that genuinely helps to increase the confidence and self-esteem of those around them. they. Aphrodite's children are often underserved or underestimated, but be careful, Aphrodite started the Trojan war and her children have a strong power of persuasion. They usually get what they want.

Cabin Eleven - Hermes, the god of trade, wealth, thieves, and travel.

The Hermes cabin is an aged log structure with a caduceus symbol above its doorway. Its interior, painted in worn brown, is constantly busy with belongings stolen by Hermes' children. Furthermore, a secretive second floor contains a stash of prank supplies.

The children of Hermes are known for loving to travel. They are true explorers of the world and are very extroverted. They like to play pranks on others and to tell jokes to brighten up the atmosphere. These people are usually more “street-smart” and have a mischievous personality; they see no problem in lying a little, but sometimes they end up abusing this philosophy. The children of Hermes believe that the more friends the better.

Important advice: Hold your belongings tightly around them, after all they are children of the god of thieves. And, if you spend a night with them, do not be surprised if you wake up with a face full of shaving foam.

Cabin Twelve - Dionysus, the god of wine and parties

The cabin's outside is light purple with lots of vines growing on it. There is a fake leopard head above the door. Inside, there is a stage in one corner where residents perform plays every week, and the furniture matches the outside color with wooden frames made from grapevines. Downstairs, there is a winery only for adults, and in another corner of the cabin, there is a kitchen with a fridge full of drinks that kids can have.

Dionysus' children are known for being the life of the party and great extroverts. They are extremely communicative and persuasive, due to their father being the God of the Theater. These demigods tend to get along well with the cat family---after all, their father is also the god of big cats. Dionisio's children are also seen as "drama queens and kings”, as they often exaggerate all situations in their daily lives and are often sarcastic. These people appreciate all products made from grapes.

Cabin Thirteen -  Hades, the god of the dead and the king of the underworld

The cabin is built with solid obsidian walls featuring a skull decoration above the entrance and torches burning Greek Fire throughout the day. Inside, the decor resembles their father's palace in the Underworld, with coffin-shaped beds similar to those in the Thanatos Cabin.

The children of Hades tend to be introverted and some even prefer to completely isolate themselves. They do not know how to deal with their own feelings properly nor are they very communicative, but are exceptional listeners. Furthermore, they are loyal and like animals. They often use dry sarcasm in dialogue,  hate being the center of attention and get very nervous about it. The children of Hades also have their greedy and ambitious side, being particularly intelligent and resourceful. It is not always easy to unveil a son of Hades: they are discreet and don't let their deepest emotions show easily. Furthermore, they are overthinkers by nature and usually do not have a regulated sleep schedule. These demigods are also very stubborn and hate admitting they are wrong. Lastly, they do not fear their own death.


Now you probably have a good idea of which cabin you possibly belong to. If you haven't felt that your essence was well represented by any of these gods, don't worry, because there are thousands of gods---not only the Greeks, but also the Romans, Norse, Egyptians, and others. If this is your case, there is no need to suffer: your journey as a demigod is just beginning, there is still much to reveal on your path!
