— Artyom the Fox
A slim fox who stands a little over three feet tall, Artyom has a short muzzle with a triangular nose, medium-sized, somewhat triangular ears that stand upright, and a fairly long, bushy tail.
His fur is almost entirely white in color, save for the light slate gray on his ears and the tip of his tail. He has no hair on his head, instead having a tuft of longer fur, and his eyes are lanzones in color.
Artyom wears the standard Artika Egg Soldier fatigues, which consists of a bright navy blue parka that has white stripes down the arms and faux-fur trim in the hood, sleeve cuffs, and hem, as well as white gloves, black pants, and charcoal-colored boots that also have faux-fur trim cuffs.
Artyom is mostly a hit-and-run fighter, using his great speed to get in close and strike, and then (usually) get away before the opponent can retaliate. The Cybernetic enhancements to the nerves and muscles of his shoulders, upper back, and arms have bolstered his upper-body strength, and he can throw a surprisingly strong punch for someone of his lean stature; he doesn't have the durability to really last in a prolonged fight, however.
While Artyom does carry a laser rifle with him, he's not terribly skilled with it; like Ingvild, he's never bothered to practice using such a weapon.
Being a canine, Artyom has a keen sense of both hearing and smell; he also has sharp teeth and a strong jaw, allowing him to deliver a punishing bite if he needs to. He's also quite skilled with his Energy Stave, and the core of refined Algidite in it gives it an Ice-aligned punch; he otherwise lacks any form of Elemental manipulation.
Extreme Gear: Snowstorm
The Extreme Gear that Artyom predominantly uses to get around in snow-heavy regions.
Artyom has no specific resistances to any Elements or energy-types, although his thick, insulating fur give him some resistance to weak Ice-aligned attacks and cold weather in general. He is quite fast, and can easily outpace slower foes and evade their attacks.
Artyom has no specific weaknesses to any Elements or energy-types, although his thick fur makes Fire-aligned attacks more dangerous to him, due to the risk of heat exhaustion. His defenses aren't anything special, therefore he mostly relies on his agility to try and evade potentially devastating attacks.
Friends and Foes
- The Eggman Empire -
- Artika Egg Army -
- Ivory the Leopard -
- Baltassar the Owl -
- Anja the Ptarmigan -
- Gerasim the Lynx - Artyom's personality tends to get on Gerasim's nerves, and the two often have small squabbles; despite this, they still care about each other.
- Ensio the Hare - Artyom has a habit of deliberately making messes for Ensio to clean up, much to Ivory's chagrin. Ensio doesn't seem to mind very much, however.
- Ingvild the Caribou - Artyom gets along fairly well with Ingvild, due to the two having rather similar personalities.
- Lotte the Husky -
- Leifur the Ermine -
- Privet the Polar Bear -
- Artika Egg Army -
- Matvei the Fox - Artyom's cousin, and a member of The Silver Huntsmen. The two seem to be on good terms with each other.
- Lotte the Husky - It's rather obvious that Artyom has a crush on her, although at no point has she returned his affections, nor does she seem keen on doing so.
Boisterous and somewhat cocky, Artyom enjoys being the center of attention, and can't seem to stand being ignored (why he's infatuated with Lotte, who ignores him on a regular basis, is therefore a mystery). His loudmouth personality seems to especially grate on Gerasim, and squabbles between the two aren't uncommon; despite this, the two still genuinely care about each other.
Artyom's cocky nature often leads him to get into trouble, and he has a bad habit of taunting his opponents; however, he has a bit of a cowardly streak, and the instant he knows the person he's taunting can smash his face in, he'll back down and attempt to flee, with mixed success.
