History

Date of Birth
March 20, 2014 (Celebrated on the Spring Equinox each year)
Place of Birth
A secret laboratory in an undisclosed location.
Artemis was created by a secretive organization known as the NEK0 group. He was commissioned by a wealthy, unscrupulous warlock named Ture Lind. At the time, he was named "Ganymede" after the stolen prince who served as the beloved cup-bearer of Zeus. He was also stuck in an un-aging, seemingly 12-year-old body.

Ture was a demanding master, and Artemis's life with him was especially difficult at first. However, despite their rocky start, the two began to develop a mutual respect and affection for each other. Ture fostered Artemis's inquisitive nature in ways he found acceptable, home-schooling Artemis in Polaris Pass for almost his entire life.

Ture was a former president of the Polaris Pass NEK0 Owners' Association. Artemis has often been held up as an example of a well-behaved and well-trained NEK0.

After Ture's death, Artemis finally had his freedom. He has since started school, changed his name, gained his "father's" wealth, and found a way to age his body.
