In-depth Character Personality:
-Artemis is a very easy going feline by nature, and at first glance it is hard to believe that he is an advisor to the Sailor Senshi as well as the Sailor Knights. He behaves very often like a typical cat, lounging around, sleeping many hours at a time, and staying well groomed, only he can actually tell you when something is happening.
-One thing that is consistently true about Artemis is that he is quite the smartass, and it has only gotten worse with age. He will almost consistently make sarcastic and jocular quips about just anything and anyone. This has been known to get under people's skins, often leading to either, Minako, Luna, or Diana forcing him to apologize through their own methods.
Despite his misgivings, Artemis is known for being an exemplary father to his daughter, based on several accounts and sources, but he is astonished how Diana managed to turn out so well without getting all his flaws. He dotes on his daughter and it is very unlikely for him to not let her get away with anything. His wife, Luna, is the love of his life, and he will never do anything to compromise that love.
If there is one person who understands Artemis to the letter it is Minako Aino. Mina and Artemis are the closest comrades in arms could possibly be. They confide in almost everything with each other and are always looking out for the other’s well being. Artemis has been seen as more of a fuzzy big brother to Mina rather than a coach and teacher.
Artemis, when he is actually working, is a very capable tactician and guide, being both logistical and moral support for everyone under Senshi Command. Staying alive and strong is more important than outright winning in Artemis’ eyes. If the enemy gets away, so be it, at least the Senshi are safe and alive.

Loyalty: Sailor Senshi, Royal Family, Sailor Venus // Minako Aino, His Family Items: Myriad of cosmic items from the vaults of the royal family. Powers: Cosmic Awareness. Like the other cats in his family Artemis has the innate ability to identify all sorts of different energy types throughout the known universe. This makes it easier for him to identify Senshi as well as tainted beings.
Mission: To provide guidance and advice the Guardians from every region of the empire. To guide, advise, and protect the royal family.
Ages ago, during the Silver Millennium, Queen Serenity had two devoted advisors from the realm of Mau. Artemis and Luna. They both held awareness and keen insight that the Queen trusted and took to heart. It was difficult for their eyes not to notice changes in the galaxy, but even then not all threats could be perceived.
Artemis noticed the betrayal by the sorceress, Beryl, when it was too late to stop the inevitable. He stood by his Queen until the absolute end, and was witness to the fall of the Silver Millennium and his subsequent sojourn to Earth.
About a year or so, before Usagi Tsukino came to realize her destiny, a thirteen year old girl named Minako Aino found herself a new best friend in the form of a stray white cat that had a peculiar crescent marking on his forehead. Artemis had come to realize who Minako really was, and gifted her with one of the few relics he possessed, the transformation pen that held the power of Venus. Sailor V was born and Artemis set out to guiding her and training her to be the Sailor Soldier she was meant to be. The two formed an inseparable bond a short while afterwards and have remained extremely close to this day.
Another awakening occurred in the form of Sailor Moon after the fabled Sailor V had already been established as a powerful and accomplished heroine, and Artemis took this as an opportunity to really set up a base of operations in Tokyo, at first deceiving Luna into giving her guidance without knowing it was him. Artemis was resting on a hunch that the rest of the Sailor Senshi were close by, and it all paid off when Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter had awoken, joining their Moon Princess. He helped Sailor V remember her place as Sailor Venus, and all the Inner Senshi were now gathered to fight back the evil that had resurged in the form of Beryl, supported by Materia and the fallen knights of the Earth.
Artemis was accidentally found out by Luna and the two were reunited under one of the white cat’s tricks, restarting their relationship in a bit of a rocky fashion. Nevertheless, Artemis was always there for Luna, making sure the black cat did not overburden herself or fell into too much danger, often putting himself in danger in the process. He really did not understand that he was falling in love with her just yet, still acting girl crazy and playing his pranks, while also ensuring the safety of the Sailor Senshi along with Luna.
Time would pass, enemies would rise and fall, and the dangers to the Sailor Senshi would go greater and greater. Artemis would get to know his future daughter earlier through a gap in time brought on by Small Lady Serenity, a fact that would cause him great confusion, especially given the affection that she showed for him. Artemis never pictured himself becoming a ‘good’ father, a father yes, but did not think he was the best of material for the job, that was until the fall of Sailor Galaxia at the Galaxy Cauldron.
During the hundred years of peace, Artemis enjoyed a period of relaxation and leisure with his now wife, Luna, and the two have remained happily together to this day. He even allowed his fur to grow out to the mature appearance he has currently. Lazy and content as he seemed, Artemis did not let his wit grow dull for even the slightest moment.
It was very common to walk into the palace, and see a big white cat engaged in multiple rounds of chess with his spouse and others. Books and research littered the advisor’s room so he could learn, and relearn, all he needed to maintain himself as a functional advisor for the royal family and Minako. Artemis simply chose to work at his own pace, and he would pass on his love of knowledge and life onto his only daughter, Diana.
It is unknown as to why Luna and Artemis only were able to conceive one child, yet they have become an almost ideal family, and certainly model example to those around them. He dotes on his daughter, making sure she is able to take advantage of every opportunity given to her. The white cat began to understand how and why he was looked at as a good father to his daughter, and he strived to live up to as much of the example as he thought he could.
Artemis was hesitant, but proud when Diana became the young Princess’ advisor, unsure if this life was suitable for a new generation. He described his hesitation as age beginning to show, and while he remained exceptionally loyal to those he loved and served, the white cat was beginning to consider retirement a short while before the Queen and King disappeared.
Neo Queen Serenity’s and King Endymion’s sudden disappearance had derailed any plans that Artemis hoped to enact, but rather than sit around and mope, he sprang into action, putting all of his knowledge and wits into play. The peace had been disrupted, and this was one feline
-The hum of the comlink was deafened by a loud yawn as a pile of white fur stirred awake. He was surprised that even in these times he could manage to rest so well, then again he was probably the only one who could get a decent amount of sleep these days. A stretch here, a stretch there, a flick of the tail, and he was already mostly awake, ready to get back to work.
Artemis’ ears twitched as he leapt on top of the console, one that Minako had specifically designed for him to interact with regardless of form. Tufted paws tapped crystalline dials here and there, numbers and maps showing up on the screens, reports of the recent activities since the disappearance of their majesties coming to the forefront.
A hefty sigh pushed from his lips as his bright white face fell. “There is no mistaking it, incidents are becoming more and more frequent since they went missing. We will soon be back to attacks on a weekly basis or more. Our enemy either knows something we don't, has the Queen and King, or is simply taking advantage of the situation. ”
He did not know where his partner was exactly at the current moment, only somewhere in the headquarters, which was enough for Artemis to remain focused on his work. The projector came to life with a large map that consisted of the full reach of the empire. Every realm that the royal family held control over was acknowledged by this detailed, computerized display. The other screens shifted with his quick movements to show the locations of all the active senshi that were out there, those who have checked in at least. Lastly, he ducked his head into a specially designed headset fitted for his feline features.
His ears were filled with the chatter of the guardians that were linked into the Senshi communication network. There were questions being asked, answers being given, guidance provided, advice sought, but Artemis kept his microphone muted while scrolling through the activity reports and for any potential leads on the royal couple. Monitoring the others, listening to them, reading, and searching through maps for any potential sightings, Artemis was doing all of it at once, his powerful mind not skipping a single step. Of course that was when someone started asking for relationship advice on the com.
The mute button came off and the words escaped his lips. “You know if, you want my advice, perhaps you can go ask him, or her, yourself, instead of wasting time and bandwidth on the network,” The audible sound of Artemis licking his paws came through the com, leading several guardians to noticeably shudder. “This system isn’t free you know.”
He pressed the mute button back on just in time to jump a little bit when his tail was flicked by his partner arriving. A growling meow responded to her as he gave a glare up at Sailor Venus.
“I get it, we have work to do,” Artemis smirked back at her. “I have to indulge every now and then, you know.”
The leader of the Sailor Senshi sighed with a smile, and sat down at her desk. The duo returned to their work, searching for their Queen and King, and making sure the system they had worked so hard to established stayed in tact.
