Annabeth Chase is a fictional character in Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. She is a demigod; her father is the mortal Frederick Chase while her mother is Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, crafts and battle strategy. She first appears in the first novel of the series, The Lightning Thief, and becomes close friends with Percy Jackson, later becoming his primary love interest and girlfriend.
She is played by Alexandra Daddario in the film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
Author Rick Riordan, when asked in an interview, "Do you feel those who aid the main character, such as Grover and Annabeth, are heroes in their own right?" replied, "Annabeth is Percy's rational side. She can think through things and look at options that sometimes evade Percy in his moments of battle panic."
Annabeth Chase is the half-blood daughter of the Goddess Athena and the mortal man Frederick Chase. Being a daughter of Athena, who is a maiden goddess, she was not physically born, but is a literal 'brain child'; she was born as a gift to the man her mother loved. When she was seven, she ran away from home. On her journey, she met Luke Castellan, Thalia Grace, and Grover Underwood. Together, they journeyed to Camp Half-Blood, running from and fighting hordes of monsters. Upon arrival at the borders of Camp Half-Blood, Thalia sacrificed her life when they were all attacked by monsters so that Luke, Grover and Annabeth could safely get into camp. She lived at Camp Half-Blood for five years prior to Percy Jackson's arrival.
