Artemis is the daughter of Zeus and Leto. She has a twin brother Apollo. She is the lady of the wild things. Artemis is the huntsman of the gods and the protector of the young. Like Apollo she hunts with silver arrows. Artemis is associated with the moon. She is a virgin goddess, and the goddess of chastity. She also presides over childbirth, which may seem odd for a virgin, but goes back to causing Leto no pain when she was born. She became associated with Hecate. She is associated with cypress tree. All wild animals are scared to her, especially the deer.
