Charon

Character Analysis

Charon is the dude who ferries dead spirits into the Underworld, across the River Styx. He is very suave and wears a fancy Italian suit and cool-looking shades. There is a huge waiting list to get into the Underworld, and the only way to get on Charon's boat is to bribe him. And that's exactly what Percy does.

He was tall and elegant, with chocolate-colored skin and bleached-blond hair shaved military style. He wore tortoiseshell shades and a silk Italian suit that matched his hair. A black rose was pinned to his lapel under his nametag. (18.18)
