Sorry about that. I was not myself. But you have reminded me of the sun and the rain and the streams in the meadows. Percy and Jason, thanks to you, I remembered the sea and the sky. I am cleansed. But mostly, thanks to Piper. She shared something even better than clear running water. You have a good nature, Piper. And I’m a nature spirit. I know what I’m talking about.

–Hagno, in The Mark of Athena

Hagno is a naiad and one of the original Nine Nymphs who helped raise Zeus after his birth, hiding him in a cave.

History

Hagno was one of Nine Nymphs that helped bring up Zeus after his birth by Rhea, in order to hide him from his brutal father Kronos. They had the extremely loud Kouretes drown out the noise of his cries so his father would not hear, and care for him while he grew up. After Zeus came of age, freed his siblings from the inside of Kronos' stomach, and defeated the Titans in the First Olympian War, he awarded Hagno the highest of honors.

In the Series

Despite having been honored by Zeus, the gods and the flame of Western Civilization moved on to Rome. A son of Jupiter appeared before the nymphs and invited them to live in a nymphaeum he had built under his house in Rome, promising that Rome would never fall. Hagno and the other nymphs agreed to this a left their home on Mount Lycaeus, in the process binding their life force to Rome.

However when Rome was conquered, the aqueducts were diverted, and their master's home was destroyed. She and the nymphs couldn't leave because their life sources where bound to the place and their master didn't release them. For centuries, the nymphs were trapped in their once lovely home.

The Heroes of Olympus

The Mark of Athena

Over time, Hagno and the other nymphs were reduced to hideous savages and allied with Ephialtes and Otis who promised them they wouldn't suffer after they've killed Percy Jackson, Jason Grace, and Piper McLean. The three demigods entered the nymphaeum while searching for Nico di Angelo and were trapped by the nymphs. The nymphs dissolved into black oily water and tried to extract the power of rain from Jason, an endless supply of water from Percy, and beauty from Piper by sucking it out of them.

Using the power of the cornucopia, Piper, Jason, and Percy sacrificed their power and their strength as if they were already dead and their gifts emerged from the cornucopia in the form of clean water, managing to cleanse the nymphs. Returning to their beautiful selves, the nymphs left to find new homes. Hagno, then told Percy, Jason, and Piper to follow the diverted aqueduct pipe line which leads into the hypogeum of the Colosseum, where the Giants reside. She then stated that she couldn't wait to see Pan again. Percy was about to inform her that the wild god had faded, but he couldn't bring himself to. With that, Hagno vanished.

Piper

Piper McLean, who helps cleanse Hagno.

Appearance

She is described in The Mark of Athena as a withered old woman that was so dried up and brittle like a mummy. Her eyes were dark purple, as if the clear blue water of her life source had condensed and thickened inside her. Her fine silk dress was tattered and faded and her hair was once piled in curls arranged with jewels in the style of a Roman noblewoman, but now her locks were disheveled and dried up like straw.

After she is cleansed along with the others, she is described as a young, beautiful nymph with a shimmering blue gown, glossy black curls pinned up with silver and gold brooches. Her eyes were now gentle shades of blue and green. 

Abilities

  • Being a naiad, Hagno is able to control water.

Trivia

  • Piper remarks how cruel it was that a nymph as ugly as Hagno (before her cleansing) would have the word hag in her name.
  • Both Hagno and Amaltheia cared for Zeus. They also both came across a Grace once (Jason and Thalia Grace respectively).
