Artemis By:Brendan Duffy

Daughter of Zeus and Leto sister of Apollo.

Goddess of chastity, virginity, the hunt, the moon, and the natural environment.

Artemis was born on the island of Ortygia, where her mom Leto found a place to hide because she was being hunted down by the unlawful wife of Zeus, Hera.

Artemis was a highly priced possession by many men for a wife but Artemis stood strog and refused in many of the greek myths.

Protecting the animals and nature is what Artemis does best.
