Armar had the absolute worst day. A cruel twist of fate left him with a complete blank slate for memory - only his name lingered in the confines of his mind. He awoke in a sea of confusion, an unnerving sense of danger and peril pulsating from his core. In a dizzying haze, he rose, stalking wobbly towards an exit. But before he could escape into the relative safety of whatever lay beyond, the nearby elevator rang its sweet, dulcet note of arrival.

The doors slid open, revealing a man with a ferocious pair of heterochromic eyes - one a virulent shade of ocean blue, the other a haunting, pine-green forest hue. His demeanor was stormy, much like his mismatched eyes, thunderous fury mixing with a testy, prickling impatience. His sinister grin stretched broadly across his face as he recognized Armar.

“Son of Death, you can't run from me, so fight me!” he challenged, his voice deafening in the quiet. As his words echoed, a dormant instinct triggered, a survival mode born from an unknown origin. With a swift flick of his wrist, the iron and silver watch Armar was wearing transformed into a grand shield, smoky and silver, gleaming under the artificial light. He twirled the ring clinging to his left hand and it melted, reforming into a sword, balanced and deadly, bathing in a cosmic purple glow.

Not fazed by the magical transformation, the man laughed. His body contorted, expanding to a monstrous size and bloomed with fiery, bright orange fur. His limbs morphed grotesquely into large and menacing paws, his tail transforming into a wickedly spiky weapon. A threatening grin took over his shapeshifting features as he launched three deadly spikes from his tail directly at Armar.

Duking reflexively, Armar blocked the incoming missiles with his shield, deflecting them successfully. Spotting an opening, he lunged, aiming straight for the man's heart, but was flung aside instead, his body hitting a brick wall, leaving an ugly dent.

In his dazed state, a far-off sound came to his ears. The sound of a chariot approaching. Out of the magical conveyance came a girl, her gold hair like liquid sunlight and her eyes mirrors of an infinity sky.

“Hold on! We're flying!” she shouted, her hand extended invitingly. Grabbing onto it, he held tighter as the chariot seemed to take off, swerving through some sort of uncanny wrinkle in space-time. His surroundings blurred, the world around them shifting and churning, and then Long Island appeared before them in a mere blink.

“Since you seem to trust me, I'll trust you. I'm Aura, a daughter of Apollo,” she offered, her words blending with the rush of wind. "And I'm Armar, Son of Thanatos," he responded, his lack of memories gnawing at his sense of self. But Aura assured him of a potential solution, Chiron.

Once they touched down in the centre of Camp Half-Blood, Armar's previously transformed items returned to their innocuous forms. As they began making their way towards a tall, impressive red farmhouse, Armar’s world shifted violently - his vision hazing and blurring around the edges, his legs weakening. Before he could react further, unconsciousness gripped him tightly, pulling him into dark oblivion.

Prompt: Armar was having the absolute worst day. A twist of fate left him with only the remembrance of his name as he came to, caught in a fugue of disorientation. An absurdly primal feel of danger stewed within him, reminding him his woes were far from over. He decided to seek an exit, but just as he made few paces, the elevator conveniently blurted a dulcet ding. A man with riotous eyes of unique colors, oceanic blue and forest green, stepped out. His demeanor hinted at a blend of stormy anger and testy temper. His mouth pulled into a wide, ominous grin as he recognized Armar. His words hung heavy, "Son of Death, you can't run from me, so fight me!" Despite his lack of memory, an instinctual defensive response kicked in. With an involuntary flick of his wrist donned with an iron and silver watch, it morphed into a smoky Silver shield. Twirling the ring on his left hand caused it to melt into the palm of his hand, eventually expanding into a smoky silver sword. The mysterious weapon bathed in a captivating purple glow felt uncompromisingly tailored to his hand, flawlessly balanced, and decidedly deadly. The man didn't falter. Instead, he chuckled, metamorphosing into a monstrous size. His body sprouted bright orange fur, limbs transforming into paws, while a frightfully spiky tail seemed to replace his regular one. Swaggering with unconfined devilish pleasure, he thrust his tail, launching three gigantic spikes towards Armar. Undeterred, he blocked the missiles with his shield successfully. Armar spotted an opening, lunged, but was flung aside, his body leaving a dent in a brick wall. As he groaned, the droning sound of chariot wheels caught his ears. From this magical vehicle, a girl, Aura, extended a hand. Encrusted with brilliant blue eyes that mirrored the vast expanse of the sky and golden hair, she was a sight to behold. "Hold on! We're flying!" Catching on, he clutched tighter as the chariot seemed to swerve through space-time. Properties blurred, and Long Island appeared a moment later. "You seem to trust me. So I'll trust you," Aura, the daughter of Apollo, offered as an introduction. "I'm Armar, Son of Thanatos." His lack of memories bothered him, but Aura promised a solution - Chiron. They landed smack in the middle of Camp Half-Blood, their base. Each demigod arrived here to grasp and hone their abilities. Armar's equipment reverted to its discreet forms. As they walked towards an impressive red farmhouse, his world tilted, vision hazed, and he buckled, surrendering to unconsciousness.
