Lore (Melora) is the heroine of Alexandra Bracken’s novel of the same name. She belongs to House Perseus, based on the Greek Hero Perseus, Founder of the Mycenae and Slayer of Gorgon, Medusa. Lore is the last mortal member of the Perseides.
At the start of the novel, Lore is residing in New York City and boxing at a local ring, hiding from her heritage and the murderous Agon about to follow.
Every seven years, a game occurs between the houses of the ancient Greek heroes. This game is called the Agon and for centuries the King of Gods, Zeus, has used the game to punish the gods. During the Agon, Zeus turns the gods mortal for one week and for the duration of the Agon, the gods remain at the mercy of being hunted by those with godly ambitions. Only a handful of the original Greek gods remain, the rest replaced by the mortals who killed them and ascended.
