Hehe - Ive listed a few up there, most of the main ones at least XD

So who is yours? And tell us why! :D



Mine is Artemis himself. He was just so evil, so clever, and so under-estimated! :D

He could not have done things any more perfectly!


btw - Someone please tell me the name of root's brother. I cant believe i have forgotten it. I guess this is what fatigue does to a person :(

I voted for Artemis too. :) I loved the way that he was the "hero" but was the bad guy at the same time, and the way he was pitted up against Holly and the other fairies - I could never decide who to root for!

Root's brother was called Turnball, btw.

But will Holly always be? :(

In her interview in The Artemis Fowl File, she did say "And im not always going to be there to save Butler." Wonder if shes right :ph43r:



Spiro rocked, because he was clever! Just not clever enough XD

And the obsession with white scared me :wacko:

For me, nothing beats the first Artemis Fowl book!

Yes Artemis, you are just so awesome. :D

I agree with Kitty and Michael--You don't know if Artemis was the good guy or the bad guy.. And that was an amazing feat in Colfer's part: he created a character that doubled as a protagonist and an antagonist.. <Yoda>Wonderful writer, Colfer truly is.</Yoda> ;)

It was a toss up between Artemis and Opal but I adore Artemis as the villian in the first book.

I decided not to pick Artemis because that's just not fair. My second-favorite (and the one I voted for) was Jon Spiro because he did his best to follow the <a href='http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html' target='_blank'>The Evil Overlord List</a> and could have won if it wasn't for Butler. Besides, he outsmarted Artemis Fowl. That has to take some brains, especially when he did it without the benefit of fairy magic. I liked Spiro a lot more than Koboi.

Helluva link! I couldnt agree more with it XD

Perhaps someone should email it to Hollywood? :banghead:

Btw - Spiro believed that Arty just vanished. That has to be one big flaw XD

I chose Arty. He's simply the best!!! B)

He has this cold look, he never gets angry or panicked, always saves his face, he articulates wonderfully, and just has STYLE!!!

He's a great actor, too. In Munich he was brilliant (Hilarious, dude :rockon: )

What else I've got to say...? He's indescribable. :D

lol - He'd be such a good poker player XD


And id never be able to pull off the Munich part. When the guard said the line to him about "Ha - You didnt do anything" (similar to that XD ), i just know i wouldnt be able to resist pulling out that painting :(
