"So, what exactly is the plan?"

-Artemis in "Motherhood"

Artemis, Goddess of the Moon, The Hunt, the Harvest, as well as Patron Goddess of the Amazons was a Greek goddess and daughter of Zeus. (YH: "Inn Trouble") She was the patron goddess of Syros. (HTLJ: "The Apple"). She was also considered "one of the Greatest of all Olympians." (XWP: "To Helicon and Back")

Twilight of Gods

She considered herself a "jock," and often fought with her sisters Athena and Aphrodite, to which she was the middle child. She offered Iolaus the opportunity to become the greatest hero in the world if he voted for her in a beauty contest against Athena and Aphrodite. Iolaus chose Aphrodite instead. At one point in time, she was at able to do over 10,000 push-ups a day, but then she became out of shape and could only do 10,000.

Warrior Priestesses from her temple attempted to kill Xena and Eve in order to prevent the Twilight of the Gods, they, of course, failed.When Xena invaded the Great Hall of Olympus, Artemis attempted to kill her with two arrows, but Xena caught them, as well as threw them both back, killing the goddess. Bellerophon, perhaps mistakenly, blamed Amazons for abandoning her during the Twilight and swore on his mother's grave to avenge her death.


Unlike the rest her family Artemis didn't show fear when Athena and the others were worried about Xena killing them. She showed no excitement about the battle against Xena she followed her family's orders quietly and reluctantly.

Artemis didn't do as much fighting as the other gods she never told them that she didn't agree with the plan the goddess of the hunt was only there for her family. Artemis is a fighter and enjoys thrills but the fight to keep the gods rule and power was no thrill to her.

Artemis stayed back must of the time in the fight with Xena and let the other gods fight her the goddess of the wilderness does love a good fight but she also loves a peaceful quiet alone time with nature. She cares for her family but doesn't like getting involved with the things they do so she just stays back and let's them deal with things on their own.
