There she meets his sister, Kaisa and she lives with them for a period of time, getting to know Greek culture. She always means to return to her mother and friends, but she is unsure about the situation if she were to go back and something about Darius causes her to stay...
Darius fell in love with her and Thea fell in love with him too but she denied it to herself as she remembered her mother’s disapproval of men and still missed her mother terribly. She decided to leave Darius before she no longer has the ability too. It breaks her heart, but she goes and tries to find her mother.
Thea’s disappearance killed her and Darius. Their separation put them into a state of endless melancholy. Thea was withdrawn from all her friends and family while Darius had a more violent way to grieve. He was ruthless in war, making him the bravest, most respected, and most feared soldier in Ancient Greece.
Thea found her mother after going to the temple of Athena. Even though her daughter was finally returned to her, Calanthe could see something was wrong. Thea was completely heart broken, and she could no longer deny her love for Darius.
Once the other gods learned of Thea’s existence, they all competed to win her hand. No one could win because Thea’s heart already belonged to another. It was then decided that whoever could cure Thea of her heartbreak would become her husband.
Calanthe, Athena, Artemis, and the Muses all saw that Apollo was using his charm to rid Thea of her grief. They all knew the fickle love of the gods, especially one as handsome and beloved as Apollo. They knew they had to intervene before Zeus would sell Thea’s soul to Apollo.
