Artemis Fowl is a series of eight science fiction fantasy novels written by Irish author Eoin Colfer, featuring the titular character, Artemis Fowl II. A teenage criminal mastermind, Artemis captures a Fairy, Holly Short, in the first book and holds her for ransom to exploit the magical Fairy People and restore his family's fortune. In the sequel, Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident, he allies with the Fairies to rescue his father from the Russian Mafia.

The series introduces Artemis as an anti-hero and the fairies' enemy, but as the series progresses, he assists the Fairies in resolving conflicts with worldwide ramifications; Artemis develops a strong sense of morals, and by the final book, he is willing to sacrifice his life for his friends. The series concluded with The Last Guardian, released July 2012.

Artemis Fowl is a brilliant boy genius who is both adversary and ally of the fairy civilization. He has Irish ancestors, dark hair, blue eyes, very pale skin, and with a history of crime, a loyal manservant and bodyguard called Butler, millions of dollars at his disposal, and one of the highest IQ levels in the world. He is the only known human to have read the Book, taken from a fairy. He first captures Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (a division of the Lower Elements Police) with the help of his faithful manservant, Butler. By the strength of his mind and manservant, he ends up with a load of gold, a cured mother, and unrequisited knowledge about the People: Knowledge he is sure to exploit in the future. The series watches Artemis develop from a calculating criminal to a young man with acknowledged, though controlled, emotions.
