|"Vengeance...it has become my bread and butter. I will not add Oathbreaker to my crimes."|
|Fought Louis LeBlue on the Plains of Sabil.|
Artemis grew up in Zeltennia, a kingdom often at war. Her father Henrik was a military official of high rank, well known and respected even beyond their borders. Her family is of the minor nobility, raising in ranks through hard work and talent. Art's mother was a well known healer, a gentle woman with an iron determination Artemis most certainly inherited.
Artemis was the second child, born 5 years after her brother Louis, who was very protective of her while she was small and an excellent companion and teacher as she grew into maturity. The two would spar for hours upon hours as children until Louis was sent off to the Academy. It was a lonely few years before she talked her parents into sending her to the Academy as well, which they did once she came of age.
As Louis was quite a warrior, he became well known quickly. He was large, strong, handsome and talented; very popular, though he never let it get to his head. Upon graduation, Louis decided he would become a Templar for the Church, a respectable if somewhat unexpected choice.
Artemis had no desire to follow him there, but did follow in his footsteps in terms of reputation. She took her training very seriously, focusing on martial arts and the katana, becoming a deadly force the army looked forward to recruiting eagerly. Indeed, there was talking that she would likely find herself among the elite fighting force.
Unfortunately, before Artemis could complete her time at the Academy, something truly terrible happened. While both Artemis and Louis were home for a holiday, Artemis overheard and argument between her brother and her father. It was not long before she heard a sword drawn and rushed in just in time to see her brother impale her father on his sword. Artemis was so shocked she was struck dumb, unable even to scream. Louis came at her then with his sword still stained with their father’s blood. Artemis drew her weapon and the two fought fiercely, but Louis triumphed, knocking her out in the end.
Artemis woke to find Louis was gone and her father was dead. She swore over his corpse to avenge him, even though that meant she would need to kill her beloved brother.
Then, with no idea what else to do, Artemis took off into the wilderness and disappeared for two years, putting on a mask to hide her face to either hide her identity, or for a more complicated, psychological reason.
It is only in the last few months that she began to hear stories of the heretic Ramza, who was wanted by the Church and who had been to the Academy as well. Perhaps he might know something about her brother. Perhaps, it is time to come back to the world...
Artemis is a very intense individual. In everything she commits herself to she is dedicated, almost to obsession. She is quite a strong woman, though not as hard as one might expect. She is not without sympathy or empathy, indeed, she seeks to uphold what is good and true. Honor is extremely important to her. She follows her own code of honor based on the beliefs and ideals of her father and her ancestors.
Above all else, Artemis is a warrior. Growing up in Zeltennia, war has always been a part of Artemis’ life. Her father was a warrior, and her brother after him. It seemed natural to follow in their footsteps. The martial arts were her passion, and she trained from a young age with obsessive dedication and meticulous discipline.
Always a very serious child, Artemis had very few real friends. Her older brother was her closest friend, first teacher, and idol. Though five years her senior, Louis and Artemis were extremely close. Artemis admired and adored him, wanting to be just like him; the finest of warriors. Though she has not had many friends, she is not opposed to making them and is not socially awkward. She was trained to move around in social circles by her noble family and can be quite charming; she simply has been known to keep a distance from most she meets due to her fierce nature and interest in fighting.
In battle, Artemis is ferocious. Brutal, even. For while she fights for peace, she /enjoys/ fighting. To her, a good fight is like a religious experience. She does not deny her wild side, nor that she has a battle lust--though she does not let it take over her mind and good senses. Even in the rush of battle, honor comes first. Artemis reveres the summon Odin as the epitome of a warrior, coming quite close to worshipping him, which they Church would not doubt find heretical.
While the art of war is certainly her passion, it is not her only passion. Artemis has a deep abiding appreciation for tea. Again, almost an obsession. If ever there is peace in the world, Artemis would like to retire to grow and sell her own tea.
Additionally, Artemis manages to retain a disitinctly feminine and often downright sensual air. She is not ashamed of her body, her gender, or her desires, yet another oddity that has often set her apart in the society she grew up in. She has always been a bit of a “bad girl” in that she pursues her desires with little regard to what others think of her, especially evident in her affair with a teacher while she was a student.
Since taking off on her own, Artemis has become even more wild, surviving on her own in the wilderness for an extended period of time. She is an excellent hunter, can build shelter, set traps, identify edible wild plants, etc. She is comfortable in the wild places of the world despite her city upbringing.
