Who are the foil characters in Percy Jackson?

There are a few very obious ones. kronos/luke, typon, all of the antagonist-ty myth creatures... But, some foil characters are not as obvious. in the first book, Zues was actually an antagonist, if you dig deep and really think about it. Rick Riordan made Hera seem mean, (no offense) but she helped the trio in ways they didn't even know. (read Battle of the Labyrinth, after "quest") hope that helps a little =)
