Artemis, aka Elizabeth O'Donnell

Introduction Edit

Long ago, before the war that currently rages in the supernatural comunity, a greater one was fought. Creatures from another universe found a way into ours. And ours quickly became their playground, for their power far surpassed anything that could be mustered here. The Fey learned to serve them; the demons learned to fear them; and the humans . . . did not learn much of anything at all, for they were busy dying by the thousands under the lash of these harsh new masters.

Until Artemis, greatest of the ancient ones, used her power to banish her kind back to their universe, and to slam the door shut behind them. But in doing so, she trapped herself on this side of the divide. And left a hungry, vengeful foe clawing at the way back in. Will the time she bought humanity be enough to find a way to resist? Or will it prove to have been no more than the calm before the storm? ~ Take A Chance: Gallery
