The Archer.  She's Beautiful.

My favorite major Greek god is Artemis. Artemis (Diana)-goddess of the moon, hunting and protectress of animals; Goddess of the wilderness, the hunt and wild animals, and fertility.

Hera was the wife and one of three sisters of Zeus in the Olympian pantheon of Greek mythology and religion. Her chief function was as the goddess of women and marriage. Her counterpart in the religion of ancient Rome was Juno. The cow and the peacock were sacred to her. Hera's mother was Rhea and her father Cronus.

Ruby braved a glance up in Hera’s direction. Her auburn hair framed her ivory face and those green eyes shone like emeralds: bold, beautiful, and cold. --from "The Immortal Game" by Joannah Miley
