Tristan was born to Adam Brown and Dike. Adam Brown later would also attract the attention of Athena, which resulted in the birth of Tristan's half-sister, Dellilah.
Tristan moved to Camp-Half Blood and by extension, New York, after monster attacks endangered both his life, his sister's and his father's.
Tristan has jet-black hair and hazel eyes and and tanned skin. He is about 5'7 and has a lean and athletic body structure.
At 15, he decided to dye blue streaks into his hair.
He also wears gloves to cover his fingers and also as a precaution as to not accidentally touch someone so his abilities don't hurt anyone.
As he matured, he became a spliting image of his father, thus become more handsome as he matured.
Tristan is loud mouthed and quick-witted. He always speaks first and asks questions later, causing him to get into a lot of trouble most of the time. He is always first to speak out at what he deems to be injustice and is stubborn to an annoying extent.
Tristan is sarcastic, and in addition to his quick-wittedness; he is very adept at striking the right nerves and pushing the right buttons to make people snap or mad. On the opposite side of painting, he is also adept at elevating someone, making them feel better when they're down.
Being a child of the goddess of Justice, Tristan cannot lie. However this has led him to tell the truth 'creatively'.

Judgement and Punishment: Tristan is able to find out someone's misdeeds through touch. Adding to that, he is also able 'punish' someone for their actions, a punishment equal to what their victim experienced. For example, if someone has killed someone else; Tristan is able to make the killer experience what the victim had to go through.
This ability is also the reason why Tristan wears gloves frequently.

Camilla Croce : Though he hasn't met her in the current timeline, she is the woman who will eventually become his wife and partner.
Delliah Brown: Tristan's half-sister on his father's side; they have a very brotherly-sisterly relationship. They love to tease and make fun of each other.
