Artemis (アルテミス, Arutemisu) is the white cat companion to Minako Aino. Artemis trains her to become Sailor V, and remains by her side when she takes on her proper role as Sailor Venus. He first guides Usagi Tsukino through the Sailor V video game at the Crown Game Center arcade without revealing his true identity. In the anime, when a technical problem reveals him, Luna is greatly annoyed to learn that he has been the one guiding her all along. Later, he fills Luna in on the details of her true mission. :Act 9 In the Sailor V manga and the live-action series, Artemis gives special items to the Guardians, although unlike Luna he does not seem to produce them himself. He does not seem to mind the fact that he is named after a female goddess, even when teased about it by Minako. Artemis is more easy-going than Luna, and has a "big brother" relationship with Minako, although an attraction to her is sometimes implied. :Act 38 He also cares very deeply about Luna, often comforting her when she is distressed and stating his admiration of her. In addition, he is a good father to Diana, as evidenced by her affection for him.
