Which character of the quest are you?

I am a demigod, daughter of Athena.

Why are you going on a quest?

I am on a quest to seek out the most outstanding and capable candidates for national office.

Who is going on the quest with you?

Percy Jackson because he has had so much experience in quests with unexpected plot twists.

What item/weapon will aid you on your quest?

My laptop will aid me.

Where are you going and how are you getting there?

I am going to traverse the nation and contact numerous people by means of Gmail.

What obstacles will you overcome?

Slow Internet may hinder my journey but I will surely overcome it.

Which mythological being will help you?

Hermes because as a messenger, he is skilled at communicating with people incredibly far apart.

Which character of the quest are you?

Wizard (or witch, because equality)

Why are you going on a quest?

To search the realms of the golden past, to follow the classics, truths that last! And do you know what else lasts? Pictures! Somewhere out there, there's a golden scrapbook just waiting to be found. I bet it's got magical powers.

What item/weapon will aid you on your quest?

My camera, obviously, because a quest like this deserves to be made into an epic movie.

Where are you going and how are you getting there?

Imagine time traveling through old photographs, like how in Night at the Museum II you could jump inside a picture. I wonder if anyone would notice if I just appeared at the 2006 National Convention. Why 2006? Because that was the year that convention was last held at Indiana University!

What obstacles will you overcome?

People might get freaked out if I suddenly whip out a modern DSLR and they're all using disposables...so I'd probably have to be careful about revealing my true futuristic identity.

Which mythological being will help you?

My buddy Bellerophon said I could borrow Pegasus, so that's sorted. But I wouldn't mind a custom Spotify playlist by Orpheus to keep me hyped during the quest.
