Clear sight is the ability to see through the Mist, the force that hides the truth from most mortals. Some mortals are born with this gift. All demigods have this ability to some extent, but still can be tricked.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

The Lightning Thief

Sally Jackson shows signs that she can see through the mist as she can see the Minotaur and Grover Underwood's goat legs. There was also a little girl telling her mum, 'That boy is coming out of the river, and he's dry!'

The Sea of Monsters

Sally continues to show signs of seeing through the mist, including the fact that she recognized Tyson as a Cyclops instead of a normal human. Even Percy, an extremely powerful demigod was tricked by this.

The Titan's Curse

When Percy Jackson is at the Hoover Dam, he slashes at Rachel Elizabeth Dare, who sees Riptide for what it is. She shows that she can see through the Mist by seeing the skeleton warriors for what they are and directing them away from Percy. Thalia Grace then explains it to Percy. Dr. Chase was also able to see through the Mist. An example of this is when he talked about the pegasi's wingspan compensating for the weight of the horse.

The Battle of the Labyrinth

Rachell Elizabethh Daree

Rachel Elizabeth Dare, a clear sighted mortal.

Rachel helps Percy by looking through the Mist. She then leads him and Annabeth Chase through the Labyrinth as part of their quest.

The Demigod Files

The Stolen Chariot

A young girl is able to see Ares' War Chariot in its true form, but her mother can not. This could be because children have a more vast imagination but it also could be that she actually had the ability to see through the mist.

The Last Olympian

Rachel continues to help Percy. Sally Jackson wakes up from her sleep and is able to see the monsters and gods fighting each other in the Battle of Manhattan.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard

The Hammer of Thor

Amir Fadlan gains this ability by opening his mind to the possibility that there is more to the universe.
