Artemis, originally named Brittany, was born to Richard and Maryann O'Connor, in the German city of Berlin during her parents stint over seas for businesses. The majority of her early child hood was spent in the blissful ignorance of youth, her parents providing while she herself never gave a thought to how. In fact life was picturesque until they returned to millennium city and her parents hit hard times and resorted to working for the local underground to make ends meet.
That changed on her tenth birthday when the local drug lord a woman going by the moniker "the shifter" sent enforcers to her house to collect on a debt her father owed and when he proved unable to pay the enforcers first cut out the young Artemis' eyes before proceeding to kill her father.
Now blind and being raised in a broken and hostile home Artemis honed her senses trying to in some form prove not only to herself but those around her that even without her eyes she was not crippled this came to a crescendo when she won her high school's archery competition a feat many believed to be beyond a person of her limited senses.
Having proven herself capable she decided to avenge the wrong in her past tying a blind fold around her eyes, a joke amongst her friends from high school who said so long as she wore a blindfold they couldn't tell she was blind, and stitching together the costume she wears now, a pain staking effort since she could only tell the colors of each thread by asking her mother let alone the fact she could only feel what she was doing. fully costumed the young vigilante set out to hunt down the shifter and exact some form of revenge. it was only when she stood above the body of her chosen enemy asking who she was that she came upon the name Artemis, remembering the goddess of the hunt from one of her history lessons that morning.
Several weeks later Artemis itching for the thrill she felt hunting down " The Shifter", donned the costume once more and set about her next hunt.
