Powersand Abilities

  • He presumably possesses the standard powers of a god.
  • Vitakinesis: as the God of medicine and healing, Asclepius can restore the injured to near-instantaneous health. As revealed in Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, Asclepius is even more skilled in medicine then his father Apollo, most likely because he unlike Apollo, devoted all of his time to it. Apollo himself admits this in The Blood of Olympus.
  • Enchanted Healing: he can instantly heal almost any woulds at a quicker rate than even other gods,his father Apollo even admits that he is superior.

  • Medical Omniscience: as seen in The Blood of the Olympus, Asclepius is instantly alble to discern a person's health status and history,as he was able to tell the piper have broken her arm when she was six after falling off a horse and that Jason had been recently injured by an imperial Gold sword, that he had am mole on his left foot, and that he was near-sighted.
