It depends upon the reader’s “Suspension of Disbelief” in order to work. • Verisimilitude is important because even the unbelievable needs to appear believable within the context of the novel.

  8. 8. The Main Protagonist
  9. 9. "Sun did not suit Artemis. He did not look well in it. Long hours indoors in front of a computer screen had bleached the glow from his skin. He was white as a vampire and almost as pasty in the light of day.” ―from Artemis Fowl
  10. 10. "A genius. A criminal mastermind. A millionaire. And he is only twelve years old." ―Back cover of Artemis Fowl Artemis Fowl II is a child prodigy who is originally an adversary but eventually an ally of the fairy civilization. He has Irish ancestors, black hair, blue eyes, very pale skin, a nearly dysfunctional family with an elaborate history of crime, a loyal manservant and bodyguard called Butler, millions of euros at his disposal, and the highest intelligence of his generation. He is also a criminally good genius who thinks of ingenious yet wicked schemes in order to restore his family's fortune.
  11. 11. Using his brains, Butler’s brawn and the boundless family fortune, Artemis locates and translates the book. The latter task is no mean feat. Computer screens blaring “NEGATIVE” sprawl across the pages where other panels explore the real world Artemis lives in: A dark, eerie mansion too vast and empty for one little boy and his delusional mother. Artemis finally solves the puzzle and states with no emotion whatsoever that fairies are now under his command, bound “to help me restore the financial fortune and the criminal reputation of the Fowl Family”... if only he can find one.
  12. 12. Artemis Fowl Book One Man v. Society--crime In Artemis Fowl, while performing The Ritual, Holly is kidnapped by Artemis Fowl and Butler, taking her to Fowl Manor. There, she is kept in a cell and Artemis tells Commander Root that they can only get Holly back if they pay a ransom of one ton of 24 carat gold. Root refuses and launches a time-stop to save Holly. The LEP lays siege to Fowl Manor for eight hours. She manages to complete The Ritual while in her cell and escapes, not long after the LEP send in a squad to save her. Holly almost dies during this escapade, which involved saving and healing Butler after their fighting with a troll. Holly is set free after the LEP send in the gold in exchange for the still-alive Holly. The LEP then bio-bombs the house and assumes Fowl is dead; however, they underestimated Fowl because he becomes the first human to escape the time-stop. Artemis also gives back half of the gold in exchange for the healing of his mother. Mulch Diggums steals a large-sized portion of the gold left over.

  16. 16. The Setting--
  17. 17. Nguyen Xuan In the first book, Artemis Fowl II reads the Book of the fairies. Artemis gained the information about the possible whereabouts of a fairy with such a book from a man named Nguyen Xuan, who responded to an Internet query that Artemis had posted. Artemis then took the Book from a Fairy healer, who traded a half hour of looking at the Book for her life and the return of her magic. Artemis Fowl II uses the Book against the People for their gold.
  18. 18. If someone touches a copy of the Book without the permission of its owner, it spontaneously combusts. It is described as a "tiny golden volume the size of a matchbox". It is inscribed in the fairy language of Gnommish. which Artemis Fowl II learns how to read fairly quickly. Soon enough, the young boy learns most secrets, traditions, and powers of the People. Supernatural—man vs. nature
  19. 19. http://www.discoveringegypt.com/Egyptian-Hieroglyphic-Alphabet.html
  20. 20. Artemis Fowl Quotes "Artemis was the closest thing Butler had to a friend, and Butler was the closest thing Artemis had to a father, albeit one who obeyed orders." Chapter 1 "The Book of the People. Being Instructions to our Magicks And Life Rules. Carry me always, carry me well. I am the teacher of herb and spell. I am they link to power arcane. Forget me and they magick shall wane. Ten times ten commandments there be. They will answer every mystery. Cures, curses, alchemy. These secrets shall be thine, through me. But, Fairy, remember this above all. I am not for those in mud that crawl. And forever doomed shall be the one, Who betrays my secrets one by one." Chapter 2
  21. 21. The mesmer is a magical talent available to most fairies, even if they haven't performed the ritual for a long time, even fairies who have lost their magic, can perform them. Certain humans also have the talent. The mesmer requires eye contact and therefore cannot be performed on someone wearing mirrored glasses. It increases the chance of IQ loss on stronger willed people. It is possible to fight the Mesmer for a short time if cast on a strong willed person such as Butler. The eye contact needed for the mesmer can be obtained through a digital screen. The Rule of Dwelling, established by King Frond in The Book of the People, forbade fairies to enter human buildings without an invitation. If a fairy breaks the rule, he or she will get sick, with symptoms including nausea and vomiting. If one does this repeatedly, he or she will lose his or her Magic.
  22. 22. The Ritual is what fairies have to The Supernatural—man vs. nature conflict complete to replenish their magic. It involves picking an acorn from an ancient oak tree next to a riverbend, then burying it in another spot, saying "I return you to the earth, and claim the gift that is my right." After they complete the ritual, their magic is restored. Having full magic is called "running hot" by fairies. This is when they are most dangerous. In the original Artemis Fowl , Artemis Later in the book, Holly realizes that her acorn and Butler capture Holly slipped into her boot, but is in a freshly Short while she was completing concreted cell. She manages to take her cot the Ritual after a close and slam it into the ground multiple times to encounter with a Troll. She was have a deep enough hole. She plants the acorn, unable to escape since she had restores her magic, and escapes into Fowl used the few drops of magic she Manor, mesmerizing Juliet Butler, and causing had left on it. general annoyance in her wake.
  23. 23. Why the goggles? Man vs. nature
  24. 24. One of the many languages that fairies can speak with The Gift of Tongues is Dog. Mulch Diggums speaks Dog when he is on the surface. The Gift of Tongues is a power that the People can use to understand and speak all languages. Some fairies such as Commander Julius Root do prefer not to use their Gift of Tongues but a translator instead because it "gives them a headache". The Gift of Tongues is a power that uses a small amount of magic power shown by how the hag-sprite at the beginning of book one can use the Gift of Tongues even though she has been drinking wine for a long period of time and has "dulled her senses and reduced her to healing warts". Though, it is revealed later that rice wine can enhance magic, making the sprite more able to use the Gift of Tongues.
  25. 25. The Main Antagonist
  26. 26. The Main Antagonist Holly Short is a captain in LEPRecon, first becoming known for her involvement in the Artemis Fowl affair. Holly Short is an Elf with the pointed ears and nut-brown skin usual for an Elf, crew cut auburn hair, and hazel. She stands at 100 centimeters, one centimeter shorter than average fairy height. Her nose has a hook and her mouth is plump and cherubic, which is appropriate considering her greatgrandfather is Cupid.

  31. 31. Commander Julius Root was the commander of the Reconnaissance division of the Lower Elements Police. He was frequently angry, and when angry, his face turns red (thus earning him the nickname "Beetroot").
  32. 32. Foaly is a centaur who is the LEP's head technological advisor. He is well known for his strong friendship with Holly Short and his run-ins with Commander Root He also likes to irritate Root. Foaly is extremely proud of his inventions (having registered more patents than any living fairy) and codes them all in the ancient language Centaurian. Unusually, Foaly is working for LEP, although he does not have any magic. LEP does not recruit non-magical fairies, as stated in The Artemis Fowl Files.
  33. 33. What is a Kleptomaniac?
  34. 34. Mulch can unhinge his jaw and undo his bum flap to tunnel underground and seriously fast rates, all of the mud and dirt shoots straight out his bum. Also when Mulches hair is plucked it straightens out like a needle which he uses for lock- picking.
  35. 35. Mulch Diggums is a kleptomaniac dwarf who has, his long life, been on the run for his crimes, particularly those regarding thefts.

  47. 47. Briar Cudgeon's background is not talked about much in any of the books, but it is said that his family was politically powerful. In Artemis Fowl, he is a power-hungry lieutenant in LEPrecon and is jealous of Commander Root's position. It also says that he used to be Commander Root's roommate. They even grew up in the same tunnel, and knew each other for over 600 years. He is one of the few people to call the commander by his first name. At first he just gives the impression of being a pompous but essentially harmless individual however his true sinister nature soon emerges. He is Retrieval One's leader, then becomes Acting Commander. After an attempt to exploit the situation and seize power, his plan is thwarted and in a rage he assaults Foaly. Root incapacitates him with a tranquilizer dart that reacts with some banned mind accelerating drugs Cudgeon had been experimenting with, resulting in him becoming deformed. He is demoted to the rank of private and left consumed with a desire for vengeance. Briar Cudgeon
  48. 48. Chix Verbil is a Sprite, who, like most male sprites, thinks of himself as irresistible to women. He is a private in the LEPrecon. Like most minor characters, Chix Verbil's personal history is not known. He appears in Artemis Fowl, Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident and Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception. He is a member of LEPrecon and a friend (though he would say boyfriend) of Holly Short. In Artemis Fowl, Chix is present only briefly, as the sprite operating the troll's cage during Briar Cudgeon's brief stint as Commander. He also is one of two fairies guarding the gold from the Siege of Fowl Manor, but he fails to do so, because he is too busy laughing at Commander Root. Mulch Diggums steals two dozen bars and escapes.
  49. 49. Stockholm Syndrome Stockholm syndrome, or capture–bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness. This is recorded from an incident during a Stockholm bank robbery in August 23-28, 1973, when hostage employees were held while their captors negotiated with police. Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.” One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory. It suggests that the bonding is the individual’s response to trauma in becoming a victim. Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself. When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor, they cease to be a threat.
