In the proposed spin off series The new Olympians you said something about David Xanatos trying to take advantage of the New Olympians. Can you give some details on how he might take advantage of them?

Greg responds...

It's complicated.

Taurus said his ancestor was the Minotaur. Assuming that this Minotaur was the same one of the Labyrinth that Theseus slew, this is kind of odd to me. If the Minotaur has descendants, he must have had children. Who would the mother of these children be, and how would he have come in contact with this female?

Greg responds...

Not like the guy spent his entire life in the Labyrinth. Just the last few years.

in "The New Olympians" Taurus refers to his ancestor, the Minotaur. was the Minotaur an early New Olympian or the Child of Oberon that gave rise to the minotaur-like New Olympians? having the word "the" in front of Minotaur makes him sound like one of Oberon's Children (as in The Banshe, The Puck, or The Coyote) but the comment's about the Minotaur by Taurus seem to hint that he was not as immortal or magical as one of the Children (being starved and killed).

Greg responds...

He was a New Olympian before the term existed. I.e., he was a half-breed. The "the" is probably a reference to his mythic, legendary status.

Most are not.

Wait a minute, Greg. In my first question you told me humans have had more setbacks in our progression than the New Olympians especailly in the 'Dark Ages' (~500-800 CE). Tell me, just about when was it that the New Olympians started despising humans and moved to their secret island? I mean didn't disease or plague ever affect the New Olympians also?

Greg responds...

Maybe here and there. But largely, no. Better sanitation probably helped.

when Elisa, Goliath, and co. arrived at New Olympus many Olympians were very shocked to see a human and i guess that is because they didn't think a human would ever end up on New Olympus, at least for a long time, but were some of the Olympians shocked because they didn't even believe humans existed? almost no humans in 1996 believed in gargoyles, Olympians or the third race because of the long seperation from each other for millenia. the New Olympians also had this seperation, why are the tales of human cruelty not considered myths and legends?

Greg responds...

They were in hiding. They monitored human transmissions. They knew.

Dear Greg,
When do suppose the New Olympian clan will make there presence known? You have mentioned that they are somewhat isolationist even with the New Olympians, so it seems unlikely that they would willingly venture into the outside world.

Greg responds...

It'll be a while.

If humans make too much 'noise' by changing their environment to suit them instead of adapting to it, are the New Olympians the same when it comes to being in tune with Earth cycles?

Greg responds...

Largely no.
