Artemis in the ancient Greek religion and myth, is the goddess of the hunt, the wilderness, wild animals and chastity. Artemis is the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. .. Festival of Artemis in Brauron, where girls, aged between five and ten, dressed in saffron robes and played at being bears, or "act the. Information about Leto, the mother of Apollo and Artemis as well as many other Leto suffered many misfortunes because of her relationship with Zeus, which.
By the later classical period the twins Apollo and Artemis became associated with the two great luminaries, the Sun and the Moon. As twin brother and sister, Apollo and Artemis were soul mates. Being so close to one another, the twins experienced difficulty forming relationships with others.
Apollo was furious when he was informed that Coronis had taken another lover. He had ravished her but then left to return to his Delphic sanctuary, assuming as a god she would remain eternally devoted to him.
However Coronis, feeling abandoned and alone, had taken the mortal Ischys as her new lover and Apollo had found out. The god of reason was no longer reasonable and in his rage summoned his sister, Artemis, to his side. From afar, Artemis let her arrows fly. Hermes was then summoned to help perform the caesarean, removing Asclepius from the womb of his mother who lay on the funeral pyre.

However in this case there may have been another agenda in executing Coronis so swiftly, one that was forged from her close identification with her brother.
From a very young age Artemis knew what she wanted and Zeus had obliged her. She desired eternal virginity and therefore was one of the goddesses Aphrodite had no persuasive power over. She desired no future male relationships, perhaps because she was already fulfilled with the one she had- her brother, Apollo. She also asked her father for a bow and arrows and like her brother, Apollo, is easily recognisable by her bow or quiver of arrows.
Both are gods of afar, shooting their arrows from a distance avoiding eye contact with their victim. Strongly in identification with her brother she may have moved swiftly to kill off Coronis before Apollo had second thoughts and recanted.
The strong attachment was mutual and Apollo had also been complicit in the murder of Orion, a potential rival for his sister. She then cursed Eos to only fall in love with mere mortals, which may have explained her obsession with Orion. Artemis also enjoyed the company of Orion. He was a great hunter and together they shared a common passion for game hunting and roaming the mountainous terrain that Artemis loved.
Apollo was concerned that Artemis, although virginal, could become obsessed with Orion just as Eos had done. He released a giant scorpion to attack Orion and although he was a powerful fighter, Orion realised he could not subdue the creature.
To escape he jumped into the sea and swam out of danger until his body was just an indistinguishable speck on the horizon. Knowing how competitive his sister was, Apollo challenged her to hit the faraway target, the speck that was barely visible in the distance. When she learned that she had actually killed her hunting companion she was grief stricken. Ironically she searched for her nephew Asclepius whose mother she had killed to plead to have him raise Orion.
However Asclepius too had been shot down. Zeus had killed the divine physician for his hubris at raising the dead. Artemis and her twin brother Apollo were loyal and devoted to each other since their birth. The Second Homeric Hymn to Artemis tells us when Artemis had satisfied her urge for hunting in the wild; she went to the temple of her brother in Delphi, hung up her tunic and arrows and changed into a beautiful dress.
Artemis was still sleeping soundly on his chest, but as Apollo stretched she awoke. It's way to early to get up," Artemis said yawning. I have to drive the sun over Mt. Olympus to wake everyone up. Then he said, I'll bring you to your house to get some rest.
See you at dusk? Together we'll go hunting, just the two of us. Apollo bent down and gave Artemis a kiss, "See you later, sis. It tells me when an act of love is shown, who was it, and it gives me a video of what happened," Aphrodite said clicking the video box. O… M… G, give me my phone, I have to call and text everyone what happened between those two last night," "Or," Athena said grabbing Aphrodite's phone first, "We could tell dad and have a secret emergency meeting.
But I'm saving that video. Not that serious, father," Athena said quickly. Do not invite Apollo and Artemis. If the twins find out, I will severely punish whoever told or even gave them a clue about the emergency meeting. As dusk was falling Artemis woke up to the sun shining through her window. Then she remembered she was supposed to meet Apollo in the garden to go hunting together.
She threw the covers off and went to the bathroom. Artemis washed up and combed her hair, then braided it. She willed her night gown into her brown hunting dress. Artemis grabbed her bow and quiver full of silver arrows. She looked at her nightstand and saw the necklace Apollo had given her last night.
She picked it up and put it around her neck. As Artemis adjusted it, the stars glowed like diamonds.
Artemis teleported herself to the Olympian garden's entrance. She walked along until the tree was in sight.
- Leto, mother of Apollo and Artemis
Apollo was leaning against the tree holding his bow and his quiver with golden arrows inside. He walked up to Artemis and said, "Hello, Artemis. Apollo asked with a big smile on his face. Reader, you must know that the argument went on for thirty minutes. After that, they forgot what they were arguing about Artemis and Apollo were laughing.
Apollo slung his bow over his shoulder and grabbed Artemis' hand then snapped his fingers. In a flash, they were in the sacred forest that was directly between their temples. They landed on tree branches, then jumped down. Apollo and Artemis looked at each other and whistled at the same time to call their hunting hounds. She knelt and they came closer and licked her face. Then they caught a glimpse of a very, very large elk.
Unlike most elk this one was very fast. Apollo gave Artemis a meaningful look and she nodded in response. Take your seats please! Where are Apollo and Artemis? Wait a minute, this is about them! I'm gonna Iris message them.
Athena and Hephaestus turned their heads to see Aphrodite walking over to them. You just forgot I had a flash drive with the video on it. Athena glared at it and it disappeared with a pop. I wanted to keep that," Aphrodite exclaimed, "I can't believe you broke it! I simply got rid of it for two days. That's so-" "Don't worry I'll get it for you later. Zeus sighed and flicked his wrist and the thrones moved to assemble a circle. Apollo and Artemis' thrones stayed in place. Zeus sighed and said, "Ares, put your sword away before I take it.
And this meeting was called to discuss the recent events of two of your siblings. Or should I say tell you about it. Poseidon made a spring sprout in the middle of the circle. Aphrodite leaned over and threw some gold and silver sparkles into the water. Instantly the lake glowed and a picture of Artemis and Apollo's faces appeared in the water. Behind Artemis' head, there was a picture of a crescent moon. Behind Apollo's head, there was a picture of the sun.
This meeting was called to discuss the recent events of your-" "Oh, Zeus, stop being so formal," Hera said, "Apollo and Artemis had a sleepover last night and they had some romance! Many of the Olympians gave a relieved sigh. Yesterday, after the council they say in the garden till the sun went down. Then, they went to Apollo's house and had a bit of a passion play before bed. After that, they got into the same bed together and played with stars.

And before they fell asleep in each other's arms, Apollo gave Artemis a necklace made of actual stars. Wouldn't that blind or possibly burn her? Apollo and Artemis are the god and goddess of light, and stars are made of nothing but light. And besides immortals can't be blinded unless they were blind at birth. And Ares would you please let your sister finish?
Before Apollo left to drive the sun in the sky, they made arrangements to go hunting together at dusk, alone. That was a lot to take in," Hephaestus said. You obviously don't-" "Hera, please! Only fate can say if this relationship was meant to be," Zeus said rather calmly. We can-" Hera said. The other Olympians nodded in agreement. Everyone began to do the same, Hera and Aphrodite were the last to do so.
Then they all said together, "We swear upon the River Styx that we won't meddle with Artemis and Apollo's relationship.
As the secret meeting was coming to a close, Apollo and Artemis already had the elk cornered. They were in a small clearing with trees lining the edges and a very rocky steep mountain on one side. The hounds were all around the perimeter of the clearing barking, snarling, and baring their teeth. Apollo and Artemis were standing on tree branches opposite from each other. Apollo looked at Artemis and sent a mental note.
When both arrow sunk in, the elk stopped breathing and fell to the ground motionless. Apollo and Artemis jumped down and gave each other high fives. Apollo kept on nodding and nodding until eventually said,"…no. What were you thinking? His kind has flourished over the last millennia. Well, what did they name their selves? Ancient lamias call their selves vampyres with a y and the newer generation call their selves vampire with an I.
How do you know this anyway?
CHAPTER XIV: ART OR TEMPERANCE
Goddess of the moon. Awake mostly at night. Take care of all nighttime creatures," Artemis said a little offended. I just didn't think you'd keep tabs on one person for centuries. I just noticed many mortals missing, then I found their dead bodies.
They were totally drained of blood and they two one inch bite marks on them.
They were instantly teleported to the entrance of the sacred cave of the vampires. The seer Calchas advised Agamemnon that the only way to appease Artemis was to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia. Artemis then snatched Iphigenia from the altar and substituted a deer. Various myths have been told about what happened after Artemis took her. Either she was brought to Tauros and led the priests there or became Artemis' immortal companion.
When Artemis and Apollo heard this impiety, Apollo killed her sons as they practiced athletics, and Artemis shot her daughters, who died instantly without a sound. Apollo and Artemis used poisoned arrows to kill them, though according to some versions two of the Niobids were spared, one boy and one girl.
Amphion, at the sight of his dead sons, killed himself. A devastated Niobe and her remaining children were turned to stone by Artemis as they wept. The gods themselves entombed them. Chione Chione was a princess of Pokis. She was beloved by two gods, Hermes and Apolloand boasted that she was prettier than Artemis because she made two gods fall in love with her at once.
Artemis was furious and killed Chione with her arrow or struck her dumb by shooting off her tongue. However, some versions of this myth say Apollo and Hermes protected her from Artemis' wrath. Atalanta, Oeneus and the Meleagrids Artemis pouring a libation, c. Artemis saved the infant Atalanta from dying of exposure after her father abandoned her.
She sent a female bear to suckle the baby, who was then raised by hunters. In some stories, Artemis later sent a bear to hurt Atalanta because others claimed Atlanta was a superior hunter. Among other adventures, Atalanta participated in the hunt for the Calydonian Boarwhich Artemis had sent to destroy Calydon because King Oeneus had forgotten her at the harvest sacrifices. In the hunt, Atalanta drew the first blood and was awarded the prize of the skin.
She hung it in a sacred grove at Tegea as a dedication to Artemis. Meleager was a hero of Aetolia. King Oeneus had him gather heroes from all over Greece to hunt the Calydonian Boar. After the death of MeleagerArtemis turned his grieving sisters, the Meleagrids into guineafowl that Artemis loved very much. She was a virgin huntress, just like Artemis and proud of her maidenhood.
One day, she claimed that the body of Artemis was too womanly and she doubted her virginity. Artemis asked Nemesis for help to avenge her dignity and caused the rape of Aura by Dionysus.
Aura became a mad and dangerous killer. When she bore twin sons, she ate one of them while the other one, Iacchuswas saved by Artemis. Iacchus later became an attendant of Demeter and the leader of Eleusinian Mysteries. Polyphonte Polyphonte was a young woman who fled home preferring the idea of a virginal life with Artemis to the conventional life of marriage and children favoured by Aphrodite.
As a punishment Aphrodite cursed her, causing her to have children by a bear. The resulting offspring, Agrius and Oreius, were wild cannibals who incurred the hatred of Zeus. Ultimately the entire family were transformed into birds and more specifically ill portents for mankind.
In the Iliad  she came to blows with Hera, when the divine allies of the Greeks and Trojans engaged each other in conflict. Hera struck Artemis on the ears with her own quiver, causing the arrows to fall out. As Artemis fled crying to Zeus, Leto gathered up the bow and arrows. Artemis played quite a large part in this war. Like her mother and brother, who was widely worshipped at Troy, Artemis took the side of the Trojans.
