Artemis is a good complement to her brother (although she might say it’s the other way around). Unlike her mother, however, Artemis prefers to be liked. As a child, she would see to it by any means necessary. She studied psychology, extending it through parapsychology to ESP, her initial foray into true Science. Much of her special brand of Science relies on psychic phenomena and unlocking the power of the mind, nudging these principles gently; most of her work can qualify as coincidental, even if it may look bizarre.
It was Artemis who ‘woke up’ the twins using her talents for ESP and spatial awareness. The Doc’s love for computers, not to mention his VA pals, rubbed off on her; Artemis is a skilled coder and uses computers almost as well as Benjamin did. Her Familiar, a Barbie doll-size robot girl is a model of the Metropolis movie robot, housing a minor spirit of technology named Sophie.
Adjusting to the mudball Earth has been difficult for Artemis. Dismissed far too often for her apparent age, she considers herself to be quite mature in her thinking, but she still has…issues. The worst of these was her parents’ Descent into corruption and their deaths at the hands of their friends. Most of all, her…eccentric, to say the least…‘uncle’ and creepy (now ex-) vampire ‘aunt’ took the blame in her mind, but all of the chantry seemed responsible, sort of ‘in on it.’
Consequently, she threw herself into the repair of the chantry’s old Void Engine, originally stolen years ago from a barabbus Technocrat by Morgan and Joshua, and left with the chantry after they had built the Defiant to replace it. It had seen better days, after another of the Dr. Carlisle’s students crashed it and died during the rescue attempt from Sojourn. But Artemis saw to the Engine’s repair and trained as its new pilot, joining the ranks of the Ethernauts through her remarkable intelligence, hard work and psychically-enhanced manipulation. The retrofitted ethership/void engine craft was renamed the Dauntless, perhaps an oblique reference in keeping with the Defiant where her brother can be found.
She may be drifting away from the Seattle mages, but Artemis will no doubt have a prominent role to play when the Red Star approaches Earth and disgorges its cargo of Qlippothic horrors.
Artemis’ Avatar is a subtle thing, more of a hint or a glimpse out of the corner of her eye than a manifest presence. Its appearance is a sleek, humanoid robot. She imagines her Avatar (and Apollo’s) are psychological representations of them as adults and master Scientists.
