Character Summary

Artemisia is an old demon, who especially loved the humans' ancient Greece. She has assumed the persona and the memories of the Queen herself. Born as Artemisia I of Caria, she was a military leader whom was part of many battles on the Greek peninsula.

Demon Artemisia has consumed the memories of Artemisia I of Caria, in 480 BCE.

Naturally a feared general amongst those she commanded, she is ruthless and cold when it comes to betrayers and her troops.

The human Artemisia died when she took two arrows to her chest and the doctors removed them from her.

With her dying breath she told Xerxes to flee from Greece.

Artemisia is currently unaffiliated because right now she does not know her place in the world. She has had many conquests in her name, but she does not wish to relive those days.

Character In-Depth

Artemisia I of Caria I was born in the province of Caria, in the year 480 BCE, I am the daughter of Royalty and a peasant woman. When my husband died, I took control of the province, because my son was too young to rule the province. While the men of my council disapproved of my choice to rule my son was still to young to take the throne. With out someone of age in line to rule our options were limited. I guess I did not have great opinionation when I decided for our people and for the betterment of the world that I would side with the Persian King Xerxes, against the Greeks. Where the push came from was Ares, the God of War, whom tricked me as one of my own advisors, even when the other advisors knew that we should not go to war with Greece. But I disagreed with them, and then found out the man that was at my side was actually a Greek spy and I tossed him overboard before the first battle with metal around his wrists.

It was a mission of revenge, the King Xerxes, wanted revenge for the Battle of Marathon, but also revenge for his father. All he asked of me was that I supply him with my troops and my ships, but that seemed like not enough for me. I wanted to be on the front lines with my men, because let’s face it, what type of Queen would I have been without that. Xerxes did not ask me to join my men on the front lines, but I joined them on the water, I gave him full command of my land troops. At the time it was unadvised that a Queen, go out with her troops but I am on my own.

I did some training with some of the other generals inside the walls of my kingdom. I figured if I was to be on the battlefield of my own choosing then I must learn to defend and fight for myself rather than having someone to protect me, whilst I cower behind my troops. Everytime I would finally beat one general, a new one would step in and take his place so that I could learn from the best of the best. I was not offended by this, don’t ever get me wrong, but eventually there was no one I could learn from, and I thought I would be fine, taking out the king’s enemies.

You know where I established myself as a great commander and tactician was at the battle of Artemisium. While we engaged with the Greek Navy by the sea, the land groups engaged the Spartans at Thermopylae. It was the smartest move he could make, take the Greeks by Sea and then take the Spartans by land. From there though, Xerxes marched north with his troops to raze, pillage and plunder Athens. But by the time that they had arrived, the Greeks had abandoned Athens and Themistokles, took his troops and the people rallying the navy under him at Salamis. I am unsure of how Xerxes felt at that moment, but afterwords he called together is war council to determine where he went from there.

When he sent his messenger around trying to understand everyone’s point of view it shocked the rest of the alliance that I was the only one to disagree with a Sea battle with the Greeks. I gave my opinionation to him, which stated he should avoid confrontation with the Greeks, as he had most of Greece under his control, and Athens was already burned to the ground. The majority thought I would be put to death for my disagreement with the King, but he thought higher of me, because I had disagreed with him. Nevertheless he went with the most obvious choice to him, which was to go with the Naval battle at Salamis. I watched as he gave the order, but never understood why continue a fight which he knew he had already won. But I digress, it feels like more of a compliment when someone wants you dead, and you the general, the commander and tactician that you know. The Greeks put a bounty out on my head, either captured or dead, for 10,000 Drachmas. It seemed they were afraid of me, and even so, I joined the battle of Salamis with my fleet. This is where the plan of tactical retreat and turn around failed us as the Greeks tricked us into the straits and we were wrecked by them there, lost huge amounts of casualties and ships, but it wasn’t because we weren’t tactical, it was because of the size of our ships that we were caught there. During the Battle of Salamis, that was the end of the Persian victories in Greece, but more so it lead to my injury which caused my death, which in Tartarus I was not allowed to forget. It still haunts me to this day that the people there allowed me to get hit, instead of one of my loyal men taking the arrow for me.

During the battle, I was struck by two Arrows both coming from either side of the strait but I was unaware of it as we were focusing our attack on the ships at hand. I was combating some of the Greek troops on the ship across from me, we could not lose the battle, but I would not give up. A third arrow struck me in the stomach, and that was the blow that made my soldiers pull me back from the line, and sent me home. I died, when I was in the care of my doctors, as they were removing the arrows from me. This did not come as a shock to them, but since no one could prove that I had died, I had become more of a threat to the Greeks that I would return to the battlefield soon after the injuries I sustained were healed. But in reality, in my final breath I told Xerxes to allow Mardonius’ and the troops to stay in Greece while he should retreat from there. He listened to me and Mardonius died in the following year.

But some aspects of myself lived on. Before I was me, I was a hungry and yearning young demon. I watched myself, when I was a human. It seemed so sad that I should die. So, I rewrote my own history. I became her, though she has been dead for Millennia. Now, I am that human. I have her life, her memories, everything that is hers. Even if I wasn't truly born as her, I might as well have been.
