Perseus Jackson, as a demigod, is one of the main protagonists of Rick Riordan's book series.

Percy Jackson is the title character as well as the narrator in Riordan's Greco-Roman crossover stories, 'Percy Jackson And The Olympians'.

In the first series, Percy Jackson was 12 years old; he was portrayed as a demigod as he was the son of the Greek god Poseidon and a human Sally Jackson. His temperament is portrayed as changeable, just like the sea, and quite difficult to predict, with the vital exception that he's fearlessly loyal to his friends and family. Percy develops a slight love interest and says "I love you" to Annabeth after he saves her and his friends.
