Artemis

Post by Rin on Sat Aug 28, 2010 3:02 am

~General Information~

Name: Artemis

Nickname/Alias: Goddess of the Hunt, Diana, the archer, moon goddess, healer.

Weight: 420lbs

Height: 5'9

Age: A certain number in the alphabet... or, translation: idk =D

Gender: Female

Appearance:
Immortal Appearance:
Spoiler:
This appearance is tall, slim, and usually seen wearing the same dress in the picture above. For her colour, she is pale, though not too pale - instead she is a more gentle type of pale... oh god I suck at explaining. Anyway, her dress seems to shift colours as she moves - from lighter blues to darker blues, and with some hints of green. Occasionally she wears a veil over her face, but not often. Her hair is white - not old lady silver, though. Despite her hair colour, Artemis's eyelashes are black instead of white, and are fairly long. Usually she keeps her hair let down, or in a small hairtie to keep it out of her face - really, she doesn't care that much for her beauty, and would rather look natural than put an effort into making herself even more beautiful.

Mortal Appearance:
Spoiler:


This appearance is very much like her regular appearance - except with very light purple eyes. This form looks around 16 years old, wearing more... tomboyish clothing - she isn't too dressy, and would prefer to look natural than... well you get the point. Anyway, she uses this form almost all the time, except for at the winter or summer solstice.


Clothing: Look in my appearance descriptions. ^^

Personality:
Of all the deities Artemis has the most complex nature. She could be paradoxically compassionate and vengeful, or nurturing and destructive, or even pacific and bloody. Yet she is in charge, and likes to stay that way among the hunters. If she sees someone who is power hungry among the hunters and wishes to surpass Artemis, she acknowledges the person... mostly - Artemis believes strongly in the survival of the fittest. As in, if that person wishes to surpass her, then good luck... but watch out, if she notices you want to surpass her, she will definitely give you much greater and ruthless challenges, to test your strength. Mostly those challenges wind up in death.
Artemis was also stealthy, quick, and clever. She doesn't care much for her appearance, and resulting from that doesn't appear as a huge 15 feet tall goddess at meetings and would rather keep her regular human-like form. To her, natural beauty is the ultimate beauty, and discourages putting on makeup or wearing anything flashy for attention. If she sees one of her hunters wearing a V neck shirt or a short skirt, prepare to be death glared.
She was strict and did not conform towards relationships. She considered hunting her highest priority. She considered men lesser than animals (she loved animals and hated men).
Artemis was a born huntress. Yet strangely enough very in tone with nature. Like so, she gives a warning to any animals she may be hunting before she hunts them. She was the protector of forests and animals, and should anyone show disrespect and hunt in her domain, they would be punish greatly for example - Artemis sent a boar to kill the mortal Adonis because he boast about being a better hunter than she. Also a hunter named Actaeon spied upon her while she bathed, was turned into a stag, and was killed by his own hunting dogs. Artemis was a virgin goddess and only accepted virgin followers. She was very pro-femminist and thought lowly of most men, except her twin brother Apollo. They had a very good brother and sister relationship. Artemis protected the name sake and honor of her mother Leto. Artemis often patrolled her domain with a number of nymphs at her side. She became enraged when one was pregnant - by Zeus - and turned her into a bear. The bear was then killed by her own son.


~Character Information~

Immortal Parent's Name: Zeus and Leto

Ability Summary:
Animalistic abilities -

  • Speaking:
    Like the title, this allows Artemis to freely have a conversation with animals, though mentally for the fact that animals can't speak like humans can. Resulting from this, she is also able to understand what animals are thinking and what they may do next based on their body posture and how they are acting... so, she can't read their minds, only communicate through a mental link that the animal or Artemis has to establish.

  • Shapeshifting:
    This ability allows Artemis to transform into any animal she pleases - in this form, she gains all the aspects of that type of animal, except their speech - she can still communicate with other animals in this form with her mind, but when she speaks she speaks in regular human tongue. Unfortunately, usually after she finishes shapeshifting she still has some habits from that animal... like if she shape shifted into a hamster, she'd have a strange craving for veggies and be more easily scared than usual.
    Also, she is able to change other people into animal shapes.


Healing:

  • Artemis has been known for her ability to heal, though she rarely uses it - she will only use it if one of her hunters are in trouble, or if she wishes to save a mortal. Though, keep in mind, if you're a guy chances of survival are slim.. if you're a girl, Artemis will most likely offer you a bargain: if you want to live, join her hunters. If you don't... well, say hi to Caron for her.


Other than these, she has many more abilities - teleportation(she has to change into her real form in order to use this. So, look at her, and you can guess what happens next...) transformation, instinct, prophecy, healing, magic, psychic abilities, purification, moon bringing, action,

~Other Information~

Classification: Olympian Goddess

Current Location: Forest of Pan with her hunters

~Skill Information~

Skill Specialty:
Accuracy - a shot by Artemis's bow never seems to miss.

Animals - animals generally trust her word when she says that she won't hunt them, for the fact that she gives off a head warning before hunting. Because of this, she has animals constantly guarding her 'camp' when she and the hunters stop.

Strength - Artemis is also known for her strength, and will to not give up. Like so, she can lift up to 30 tons.

Healing - though this is a seldom used ability, Artemis is able to heal people. See my abilities above.


Special Characteristics:,
Her golden bow, shaped like a crescent moon... sort of. See her immortal appearance for what it looks like. Anyway~ this is an enchanted bow, as well with its quiver and arrows - as in, if she loses it, eventually it'll appear on her back again. With her quiver and arrows, the arrows always appear back in her quiver after they hit their target, and her quiver as well as her bow is able to disappear and appear at Artemis's will. The hunters have a lesser version of this, with the same enchanted attributes. Their bows are silver coloured.

I think her symbol is a bow. Anyway, she is also known for her white hair, usually representing purity or the moon.


~History/RP Sample~

History/Background Story:
Spoiler:

Artemis was the twin sister of Apollo. The story was told that Leto, while pregnant with her twins, was continually on the run from Hera. She could not find any city that would take her in, because they feared the wrath of Hera. Finally, she was allowed to stay with her sister on one of the Greek islands. There Leto gave birth first to Artemis, who after getting out of the womb, assisted in the delivery of her twin Apollo. From this event Artemis became known as the goddess of childbirth.

Artemis is pictured with a bow and arrows and often in the woods. In the Trojan War, recounted by Homer in the Illiad, Artemis was on the side of the Trojans.

Artemis was not a goddess to be trifled with. Once the queen of Niobe, bragged she was better than Leto because she had seven sons and seven daughters, where Leto only had two. Both Apollo and Artemis took offense to this, and Apollo killed all the sons while Artemis killed all the daughters. Another time a hunter came upon Artemis while she was bathing in a pond. So angered in having been seen unclothed, she turned the hunter into a deer and allowed his dogs to rip him to pieces.

Artemis was not only the goddess of the hunt, but also the protector of wild animals. Though the two do not seem to mesh, in the minds of the Greeks they do. When she hunted, her kills were quick and painless. By regulating the population of wild animals, she kept them from starvation and plagues that would strike large, overpopulated animal herds.

Later, Artemis is sometimes replaced by Dionysus in the list of the twelve Olympians.

Looks great, just some things I want to point out.

weather changing, maker of time and systems of measurement.

Well, weather changing? I believe only Zeus can do that as he is the god who rules over the sky. Correct me if I am wrong. ^^

Also, please explain what do you mean by 'maker of time' and 'systems of measurement'.

That's all. =)
