Artemis Fowl II is the main character of the
Artemis Fowl series. He is the son of Artemis Fowl I and Angeline Fowl. He is commonly referred to as simply "Artemis". It is mentioned several times in the series that he is of extremely high intellect, having contributed to the fictional scientific journal "The Psychologist's Journal" under a pseudonym pg. 11] , and having the "highest tested IQ in Europe"Fact|date=March 2008.
Angeline Fowl is the wife of Artemis Fowl I and the mother of Artemis Fowl II. After the disappearance of her husband, she goes into a state of
insanityand depression. She is described by a school counselor as having no control over Artemis' behavior, allowing Artemis to engage in the illegitimate money-making enterprises in and before the first book.
Beckett is mentioned briefly in the latest Artemis Fowl book . He is the younger of the pair of twins. He seems to have average intelligence and is fond of pointing at himself and speaking of himself in the third person. Beckett doesn't seem to realize what certain words mean, as he refers to himself more than once as a 'simple-toon'.
The elder and obviously more intelligent of the Fowl twins, Myles is much like Artemis. He potty trained himself at fourteen months, building a ladder of encyclopedias to reach the toilet. Myles is quite bright at the age of two and will undoubtedly prove to be a bit of a challenge for Artemis to handle in the future.
