A gentleman's repose
Artemis was born in Okolona, from a family of two alchemists. Being alchemists, and being Tieflings, they were often discriminated against. In his early years, Artemis tried to fight back against the children of the neighborhood, who would pelt him with rocks and get into fistfights with him, but he soon found that he gained much more satisfaction from taking the moral high ground and refusing to fight back even if it meant severe pain for himself.
He is a little bit uptight. He likes to have a plan or schedule before doing anything, but can usually manage without. (Albeit with much complaining.)
He has deemed himself a gentleman, believing in honor, fairness, and civility. He isn’t likely to do anything like a coup de gace during combat, but would favor a gentleman’s duel. In addition to this, he likes to carry spell books and alchemy tomes with him on long journeys. Distracting him while he is reading is not a simple matter.
The quickest way to anger him to to question his civility, or to call him barbaric. He gets frustrated easily by those who refuse to listen, and will argue passionately.
His eyes are solid orbs of white, his skin is a dark red tone, and his horns have a slight curl in them at the tips.
Artemis is a private investigator/journalist working for the Goothonian Times. He travels from town to town with his donkey-drawn cart, in search of a story. The Tiki Company often meets him for an interview after a heroic deed has been done.
More recently, he has been working with Tibles of the Blue Leaf Clan and to track down the hired assassin known as Alexis Machine. They are working in secret out of the basement of the Sand Dune Oasis Pub in Ahrandi, which is owned by Kiana Alan.
