Transcript of Artemis

Artemis is the goddess of the moon, forest and the hunt. Her twin brother, Apollo, is god of the sun, music, and poetry.
Leto was forbidden by Hera to give birth to Artemis and Apollo on the mainland or on an island. So they were born in secret in Delos, which was considered neither.

Magi's Myth
Artemis was running through the forest, for night wouldn't begin if she didn't pull the moon out of the sea. A deer, her loved companion, was always by her side. She was in a hurry to get everything done before it went off schedule. She had just returned from battle at Troy, where she sided with the Trojans instead of the Greeks. She heard an arrow whiz by her head. In one motion, she had her arrow pulled out of her quiver and aimed at the target of the shot. It was a Hyleoroi nymph sent by Hera to punish her. She let go of one arrow aiming for the nymph and missed, hitting a branch right below her. It snapped off the tree and tumbled down, landing inside of the deer's head. AND THAT'S HOW DEER GOT ANTLERS...
from kid-eating grandpa
