My name is Artemis but people also call me Diana in Rome. My parents are Zeus and Leto and Apollo is my twin brother. Ares is my best friend. I like living with animals and they are important for me, but I like hunting sometimes as well. I am a very good archer and my father taught me this ability. I have many symbols such as arrow, bow, deer, dog, and moon which represent me. I am the goddess of the moon and I like wild nature. Also, being a beautiful woman and having blonde hair are some of my other qualities. People say I have a serious face and I am staid. I was born in Delos, a day before my twin brother and I helped my mother give birth to my brother. I think it is a very difficult process and that’s why I decided to never get married and stay a virgin. I have an important power and thanks to this power I supervise water and heal sick people. My twin brother represents the Sun and I represent the Moon.
I would like to share my sad love story with you. I loved Orion and my love for him was greater than anything else. One day, while I was hunting, I saw Orion. He was gigantic and he had different abilities. For example, he could walk on the sea and he was a really good swimmer. I fell in love with him at first sight. I gave up my oath and I decided to marry him, but my brother didn’t like this idea. Because I had already made up my mind, I didn’t listen to my brother. However, my brother was a great liar. I am a good shot and Apollo knew that. Somehow he tricked me and I killed Orion unwillingly. This death made me very sad. I was not happy anymore. I carried his lifeless body to the sky in my arms. I wanted him to be the brightest star so that I could watch that star and never forget him.
After that day, I have never fallen in love with anyone again. I still look at the sky every night and remember my only love, Orion.
