Transcript of The Hero's Cycle: Percy Jackson & the Olympians - The Lightning Thief

The Ordinary World:
Percy's story started off at Yancy Academy.
His background and some of the characters (Grover, Chiron, etc.) were introduced.
By Cody Bellows, Katie Gorman, and Bryce Moon
The Call to Adventure:
Percy faced Mrs. Dodds, a "fury," and temporarily destroyed her.
Refusal of the Call:
Percy began to believe Mrs. Dodds was a hallucination.
He was really suspicious because Grover acted as though he knew something (Grover was a bad liar).
Meeting with the Mentor:
Percy entered Camp Half-Blood and was mentored by Mr. Brunner, a.k.a. Chiron, a centaur.
The Hero's Cycle:
Percy Jackson and the Olympians - The Lightning Thief

Crossing the Threshold:
Percy embarked on a quest along with Grover and Annabeth to retrieve the master bolt and prevent a terrible war.
This was Percy's first time out of Camp after he originally entered, which meant he was not protected from monsters any longer.
The Road Back:
Percy traveled back to New York and gave Zeus the master lightning bolt.
Conversation with Poseidon.
Gave Medusa's head to his mother.
The Resurrection:
Percy came back to Camp Half-Blood and was told the truth by Luke, how he stole the master bolt during a field trip and how Kronos would rise. After doing so Luke released a pit scorpion on Percy nearly killing him; he survived and healed up.
Tests, Allies, and Enemies:
Throughout Percy's quest, he was tested and "sorted out his allegiances."
Ex: The defeat of Medusa, the escape from Echidna.
Percy and Co. met Ares, the God of War, and he asked them to retrieve his shield from an abandoned water park. It was a trap, but they escaped.
They traveled to Hollywood California and prepared to enter the underworld.
The Ordeal:
Percy, Grover, and Annabeth entered Hades' Domain and confronted Cerberus.
They finally faced Hades and indirectly found out the truth about what happened; due to Ares' magic, the master bolt appeared in Percy's pack.
Return with the Elixir:
Percy decided to leave Camp Half-Blood and continue his quest to defeat Luke and prevent Kronos' resurrection.
Elixir: Percy's experience and knowledge.
Percy had the master bolt in his possession but he had to defeat Ares in hand-to-hand combat to get Hades' Helm of Darkness which he later returned.
I hope you enjoyed our first Prezi!
Easter Egg!
