Enhanced speed, strength, senses while in wolf form. While in human form, Artemis still maintains exceptional vision and sense of smell. He is also somewhat stronger than the average human of his size due to his regular use of vampire blood. Skills:
Some proficiency with small arms and melee weapons. He often carries a .45 calibre pistol and has access to wooden bullets as well as a large silver Bowie knife. He is an excellent driver. He also has a detailed knowledge of vampire weaknesses (silver, wood through the heart etc..) and experience with the underground V trade.Personality:
Understandably, Artemis hates vampires with every fibre of his being. That being said, he is a V addict, first and foremost and there is nothing he won’t do in order to get his next fix. While he prefers hunting among the newly made or otherwise unsuspecting vampires, there have been times when he has had to actually work for those he hates in order to get what he needs. Artemis tends to be a pragmatist and has long since put the lofty notions of good and evil aside. Outwardly, he tends to be quiet and withdrawn though when he opens up, he displays a rather warped sense of humour. Brief History:
Artemis was born a werewolf near Fort Nelson, British Columbia in May of 1978. His father was the pack master of a large werewolf population that was living and operating in that area during that time. As a child, he fell in love with nature and would spend days and even weeks wandering the through woods. When the change came upon him at the age of 13, Artemis became a full member of the pack. He quickly distinguished himself as one of the pack’s best hunters and fiercest fighters. By the time he was 17, it was clear that he was going to follow his father’s paw steps as the next pack master.
However this was not meant to be. In the summer of 1995, the Vampire Queen of British Columbia purchased the large area of forest that had served as the pack’s hunting grounds for generations. She issued an ultimatum: Either the pack would pledge their loyalty to her and obey her commands, or they would be forcibly removed from their home. To which, Artemis’ father responded with an ultimatum of his own: “Put up or shut up.”
Thanks to the ample hunting grounds, the pack had grown large in recent generations and nearly 40 werewolves answered the pack master’s call when the queen’s sheriffs arrived. By dawn, after an intense and bloody melee, only one of the seven vampires sent returned. However from the 40 wolves who’d answered the call, only 7 remained.
As Artemis stood over his father’s broken body, he knew that their pack was finished. After sending the families of the fallen to be taken care of by other packs, Artemis led the remaining fighters to Vancouver, the queen’s capitol. There they began a guerrilla war: hunting and capturing unsuspecting vampires then draining them. They drank all the V they could and sold the rest in order to fund their efforts. It was a dangerous existence however, and within a year Artemis was the only of his pack left.
Having no other choice, he fled Canada across the border into Washington and disappeared. For the next fifteen years, Artemis travelled the United States making his living by hunting vampires and selling their blood for profit. In that time, he has become hopelessly addicted to V. Ons:
