We know very little about the linguistic construction of the Gnommish language.
This stems from his family, who have been criminals for generations. His investigation into the supernatural eventually leads him into contact with the People in the first book.
Due to a strict upbringing, and a lack of any intellectual equals to ground him, Artemis is socially awkward, his best friend and bodyguard Butler being one of the few individuals whom Artemis trusts.
He is very pale with raven black hair and blue eyes. Artemis is famed for his intelligence; he claims to have the "highest IQ tested in Europe", but is also known for a lack of coordination and athletic ability.
Throughout the series, he learns profound morals from the Fairy People and becomes more compassionate and trustworthy, but still maintains much of his intelligence.
He is the third most skilled martial artist on the planet the first is a monk on a Pacific Island and the second is his uncle, the deceased bodyguard of Artemis Fowl Ia formidable marksman and firearms expert and has immense experience of the criminal underworld, often providing help for his charge through his many contacts.
His name is Domovoi. He also has a little sister, Juliet, who appears in some of the books. Butler is rendered clinically dead temporarily in The Eternity Code, but is rescued by the ingenuity of his principal and the healing powers of Holly Short.
Butler arms himself with a Sig Sauer P pistol chambered in 9mm Parabellum but often must resort to other fairy weaponry for his tasks. Holly is three feet tall and slender, with nut brown skin and auburn hair. Holly also holds a disregard for the rules and orders given to her.
She is also known as one of the best pilots seen in LEPrecon. Foaly Foaly is a centaur, technical genius, and computer geek. He works for the LEP, the fairy authorities, and is in charge of preventing humankind from discovering the fairy civilization.
His intelligence makes him paranoiac. He always wears a tinfoil hat to protect him from future human mind-probing technology.
His sarcasm and talkative nature often annoy LEP officers, though his greatest pleasure outside of his engineering is aggravating the notoriously bad-tempered Commander Root.
He has a rivalry with Opal Koboi, which she sporadically mentions throughout her dialogue. Opal Koboi Opal is a deranged, paranoid pixie whose dream is world-domination and the destruction of the LEP. Featured in several of the Artemis Fowl books as the main antagonist.
She detests Foaly, as he won a science competition in college over her, and she believes the judges chose Foaly instead just because he was male. However, she had become the archenemy of Artemis after he and Holly foiled her plans numerous times.
Mulch Diggums Mulch is a kleptomaniac, criminal dwarf who has been involved in crime for about years.
When considered with the average Dwarf life span he is not that old, making him nice and spry, a good advantage for a criminal. He once was a mining dwarf, but later decided that stealing from Mud Men in other words, humans suited him much better.
He insists that humans were stealing from fairy-kind and the earth and that he is simply taking them back or repossessing the items. But eventually, when the fairies and Artemis are on stable ground, he joins forces with The People on many adventures, acting as an LEP helper at the beginning of The Time Paradox.
Julius Root[ edit ] Julius Root commanded the reconnaissance branch of the LEP and was in charge of all activities related to the tracking of those who leave fairy civilization, to prevent them making contact with humans.
Known for his ruddy face hence his nickname, "Beetroot" and extremely short temper, he led the LEPrecon on missions until Koboi killed him using an explosive in The Opal Deception and framed Holly Short.
He taught Holly to do what is right, even if it means to stop being an LEP captain and instead become a major, being confined to deskwork. However, Root also seems to have been a lot like Holly Short when he was younger; a book states that Holly Short had recently beat the speed record, a speed record that had been set 80 years ago by Julius Root.
Julius Root seemed to hate it when Foaly called him by his first name.
Julius Root also had a brother, Turnball Root, who was the main antagonist for the seventh book. Briar Cudgeon[ edit ] A minor antagonist in the first novel, Cudgeon is a deranged elf who was disavowed following the events of the first book.
He then becomes a major antagonist in The Arctic Incident who plans alongside Opal Koboi to kill Commander Root, only for Opal to catch on his treachery and kill him in a fit of rage. Themes[ edit ] Colfer has said in interviews that the series is about Artemis growing up.
Colfer wanted to end the series with a simple choice between being kind without reward or being unkind for a reward.
