Percy made friends with Annabeth Chase (Alexandra Daddario) daughter of Athena (Melina Kanakaredes) and Luke (Jake Abel)son of hermes (Dylan Neal) and learned how to prepare for battle if he was never attacked, One night camp half-blood was attacked by Hades(Steve Coogan)lord of the underworld and he demanded that Percy Jackson should hand him the bolt of lightning that he stole in return for his mother.

With a little help from Luke, Annabeth, and Grover were ready to set off for the underworld, Luke lent Percy some weapons, and a map showing him that he needed to collect some pearls first so that he could exit underworld, after he had finished his business with lord Hades or he would be trapped their forever.
