Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Krios. Krios is the Titan of stars. In "The Lost Hero", we find out that Jason battled and defeated him at the same time that Kronos was overthrown.
Prometheus, Morpheus, and Hecate were all on the Titans' side as well, but they were part of the battles in Manhattan, not at Mount Othrys.
Save the Yellow Bellied Sapsucker. The protest movement Percy mentioned is Save the Yellow Bellied Sapsucker. Although Rachel does support the gods, and is part of a program called Urban Arts for Kids, she also supports nature, which is why she protests for endangered species, like the yellow bellied sapsucker.
taking only two people. Instead of taking two people on her quest, she takes three: Percy, Grover, and Tyson. She says that she needs all of them. It is important to only take two people because she and her two accomplices would total to three, which is a sacred number in Greek mythology. (Ex: The Big Three)
She hits Kronos with a blue plastic hair brush. Rachel, in fact, did do all these things -- she made it through the quest alive and sane, can see through the Mist, and saved Percy's life against some empousai in the beginning of "The Battle of the Labyrinth" -- but it was after she hit Kronos with her plastic hairbrush that Percy commented that she had won his permanent respect.

Marble. As Percy and Annabeth approach the Island of the Sirens, Annabeth hears the song of the Sirens, which sings of the heart's true desire. For Annabeth, that's reuniting her parents, bringing Luke back to the gods' side, and rebuilding Manhattan. Everything's in marble because that's what the buildings in Ancient Greece were made of.
A sphinx attacked him in an alley. As a child, Percy had some wacky experiences. The first was in preschool, when his teacher laid him down for a nap in a cot filled with snakes. When his mom came to pick him up, she saw her son playing with a dead snake, which he'd strangled to death.
When he was in second grade, some creeper started stalking him on the playground. He went away when the teachers threatened to call the police, but before he did, Percy noticed that he had one eye in the center of his forehead.
Plus, every year, when he and his mom went to Montauk Beach, he saw faces smiling at him in the surf, then they disappeared.
However, Percy was never attacked by a sphinx in an alley. That happened to Tyson, Percy's half-brother.
peanut butter and ketchup. On the bus going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Percy gets angry at Nancy for throwing wads of peanut butter and ketchup sandwich. He later wishes he would have just decked her, because he would have gotten in trouble and possibly avoided getting attacked by his per-algebra teacher later on.
