Artemis is the four thousand six hundred and twelve years old Greek virgin goddess of the hunt, the Moon, chastity, animals, and the wilderness. She and her twin brother Apollo are known as the "Twin Archers." Artemis' handmaidens are known as the Hunters of Artemis, a group of young women that have turned their back from the company of men and have pledged themselves to the goddess. Her Roman counterpart is Diana.

Weaknesses: Has all the weaknesses of a normal god: They can be injured by supernatural weapons if they decide to fight physically; he/she may weaken, age, and take the form to represent their current state of said domain if its attacked; they fade from existence — either from a lack of worship or the diminishing of their domain and if their thrones (or other sources of power) are destroyed, they will also fade along with it or become so weakened that they can no longer take a physical form. The only way to permanently defeat a god is to scatter their essence.
- Transfiguration: Athena can transmute and transfigure virtually anything into anything else with ease, she transformed Actaeon into a stag, Kallisto into a brown bear and when Sipriotes accidentally witnessed the goddess bathing, she, in an act of mercy, permanently transformed the youth into a maiden.
- True Form: Like the rest of the Greek Gods, Artemis possesses a "True Form" that manifests when she gathers all of her essences in one place. During this time, she emits blinding, searing light that can kill any mortal foolish enough to challenge her virtually instantly and vaporizing the physical forms of those who survive an initial glance.
- Archery: As the Goddess of Archery, Artemis is an extremely skilled archer. Her aim was so incredibly precise that she was able to split the Manticore's spikes mid-air with her arrows. As revealed in Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, Artemis' arrows strike anyone, no matter how far they are. Her skills are only rivaled by her brother Apollo, and the Giant Orion. She combines her archery skills, with her control over moonlight and can shoot shafts of moonlight.
