Demigods are individuals who have one parent being a god or goddess and the other parent being mortal.

In the ancient Greek and Roman world the word did not have a consistent definition. It was rarely used and had a number of different meanings. The earliest recorded use of the term is in the archaic Greek poets Homer and Hesiod. Both describe dead heroes as hemitheoi, which meant "half gods".
