Sidekick Saturday: Grover Underwood



We know them, and we love them. They're there for everything, from comic relief to life-saving feats of bravery. They're the sidekicks. Do they get the credit they're due? Probably not, but we love them anyway.

Here at The Reading Addict, I'll be shining a weekly spotlight on secondary characters I love (like Ron Weasley, obviously).




Origin: The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

Quirky Traits Include:
 Satyr, protector of demigods, fan of eating metal cans and other objects

Why I Love Him: After bringing Percy Jackson into the world of Greek mythology come to life, Grover sticks by his side and accompanies him on his daring adventures. He's hilarious, and despite his sweet nature, he's a great companion on Percy's quest to save the world.

A Quote from Grover: "Percy... the gods really don't appreciate people sitting in their thrones. I mean like turn-you-into-a-pile-of-ashes don't appreciate it."
