We hate to break it to you this way, but your mother has been keeping the biggest secret of all time! She didn't mean to deceive you by not telling you that your father is actually an all-powerful god. You see, she was under strict orders to assign a mortal to the role of dad for your protection.
If the secret about your real father had gotten out, you would have been subjected to a life full of questions and paparazzi. Few people know that folks like you with immortal lineages actually exist. If your mother hadn't kept your identity a secret, who knows what kind of universal havoc could have been caused!
Now that you've come to terms with the fact that you are a half-god, it's time to find out which of the most loved or feared gods is, in fact, your dad. Can you attribute your love of the sea to Papa Poseidon, or do you rumble like Zeus' thunder clouds when you are angry?
The way you answer our questions about yourself, your family, and your secret abilities will lead us down your true genetic trail. Brace yourself; you are about to enter Valhalla! Get ready to meet your heavenly father.
