Who is Foaly
Who is Holly Short
Who is Opal Koboi
Warning (Over 35 characters)
Abbot's demon name is N'zall, meaning little horn in ancient demon language, which caused a lot of resentment towards the older demons. For this reason, he started to call himself Leon Abbot, after the general in the book he brought back, Lady Heatherington Smythe's Hedgerow.
In book 7 he treats Artemis's Atlantis Complex at the end of the book.
He is called "Jerry" by his two best pixie custodians, the Brill brothers, who helped Opal Koboi escape. He later mentions that he hates to be called Jerry and feels he deserves some amount of respect around his own eponymous clinic, but didn't say anything because good janitors are "so hard to find", and that since they are pixie twins, even rarer.
His name is a pun on "verbal jargon". Jargon is terminology, much like slang, that relates to a specific activity, profession, or group, e.g. psychiatrists. Argon is also a "Noble Gas" on the Periodic Table of Elements. It has been suggested that Argon's surname is Argon because he is noble, hence the noble gas; however that is disputed as, in the series, he does not represent noble characteristics. Coincidentally, his first initial and surname together spell the word "Jargon".
He is a New Zealand bodyguard working for Jon Spiro, an American businessman. He has bleached blond hair, tattoos on his body and neck, and is first seen wearing a cut-off T-shirt and pirate earrings. He is not a man who likes to be forgotten, or ignored. During the course of the book he has all his teeth blown out and replaced with several sets of customized dentures - these include a porcelain set, sharpened to points, another (flat) porcelain set "for crushing stuff" and a strange set which are half filled with water and half filled with blue oil. In an attempt to kill Artemis, he fires the shot which Butler intercepts, nearly killing him. Angered at failing to kill the genius, he plans to ambush Artemis at the end of the book. He is caught before reaching Artemis, as Butler, masquerading as a spirit from hell, convinces him to confess. During the storyline, he is represented as everything Butler is not - brash, conspicuous and careless - despite the fact they both have the same job.
Mervall & Descant Brill
Merv and Scant are agents of Opal Koboi, and being perhaps the most competent and faithful of her henchmen, she placed them as janitors in the J. Argon clininc as part of her backup plan. They orchestrated a power failure and rescued her from the clinic, replacing her with a clone. They continue to serve Koboi throughout the rest of the book, performing tasks such as piloting and maintaining her shuttle, escorting and cooking.
However, Opal's personality changed greatly after her rescue, and she became intolerably paranoid and obsessive, taking out her anger on them. She even went as far to write a list of rules for them, such as bowing before her, not looking at her directly (claiming "it's bad for her skin"), passing wind, using slang, or thinking "too loudly" near her. The latter due to the fact she was starting to claim that she was psychic. Naturally, the Brill brothers became resentful of this, and only fear and the promise of Barbados kept them loyal.
Opal betrays them in the end by ejecting them from her shuttle against the chute wall, leaving them stranded in impact gel. Foaly later says they are picked up and were quick to betray her.
They appear again in The Time Paradox as their younger selves, helping the past Opal Koboi increase her magical powers by extracting the body fluids of supposedly extinct animals thrown down to them by the Extinctionists (who of course had no idea they were there). It's also implied that Opal attacked them, as at the end of one chapter, where Artemis escapes, Opal says that she has to blame someone, and they attempt to escape, but the last line of the chapter is: "They didn't run fast enough".
In The Arctic Incident, Cudgeon began scheming against the LEP and Root, joining forces with Opal Koboi. He convinced the B'wa Kell goblin triad to start a rebellion. They almost defeated the LEP, but were stopped by Artemis Fowl II, Butler, Holly Short, Root, and Foaly. Cudgeon was foiled when Foaly managed to send an audio file to Artemis' mobile phone, revealing how Cudgeon had been planning to betray Koboi. Cudgeon died when, after his planned treachery was revealed, he became entangled in the safety rail of Opal Koboi's HoverboyTM, which Koboi had launched at him in rage, after which he inadvertently entered a plasma servicing hatch that Artemis opened. Ironically, this occurred after Cudgeon himself activated the plasma cannons, so he was "fried by a million radioactive tendrils" and was killed immediately. His preferred weapon in this book was a customized Softnose Redboy blaster, which he used in a failed assassination attempt targeting Koboi just before his death.
His incredible driving skills lead to his being offered amnesty for his services. He helps Artemis Fowl and Holly Short retrieve №1 from Minerva. Three years later, Doodah Day is Mulch Diggums' partner in the Private Investigation firm, Short and Diggums.
He claims he can drive anything and has a device called the Mongocharger which uses a nuclear battery to boost any vehicle's power.
At the end of the book, he and Mulch Diggums team up to become private investigators, such as Holly and Mulch were at the beginning of the book.
He is not the fish smuggler from the Artemis Fowl files, because Doodah is a pixie, and in the Artemis Fowl files, Holly tells the fish smuggler to stop hovering, so the fish smuggler in The Artemis Fowl files is not Doodah, but is a sprite.
In The Opal Deception, Artemis has changed drastically in his treatment of his mother. At the beginning of the series, he barely had a relationship with her, while at the beginning of the fourth book, he feels extreme guilt over lying to his mother in order to obtain a painting.
Angeline Fowl has made appearances, however short, in the first four Artemis Fowl books. (She is only vaguely referred to in The Lost Colony). While Artemis was stuck in Limbo toward the end of Book 5, Angeline gave birth to twins - Beckett and Myles. She is also told about the People by Butler, although it was revealed in Book 6 that she and Artemis Senior had been mesmerised by Artemis II to forget this. In Book 6, Angeline contracts a fatal illness known as Spelltropy, forcing Artemis Fowl II to travel back in time to recover the last known cure, the brain fluid of a lemur Artemis had made extinct when he was 10. It is later revealed that she was possessed by Opal Koboi, who wanted the lemur to increase her powers. At the end of the Book, Angeline knows about the existence of the People from Koboi's memories, and demands that Artemis II tells her everything. In book 7 she tries to make him act more like an ordinary teenager, making him call her 'mum' and wear jeans and a t-shirt with the word "Randomosity" on it.
Her name is often used by Artemis as a way to make an excuse to his principal of Saint Bartleby's School for Young Gentlemen. He once used her name in Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception by using a phone call by recording her voice and smoothening it out into an angry tone. Another time he had typed out an email with his mother's name to the principal in Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident.
Artemis Fowl I
Grub often threatens Trouble with telling their 'Mommy' about the menial aspects of Trouble that bother him. He is notorious for wanting his mother, and claims to have single-handedly defeated Butler, the most dangerous human the fairies have ever been in contact with. According to Holly and the first book, Artemis Fowl, Grub's war story is actually just the story of Butler letting him go unharmed as a fisherman would a minnow. The details given in the book are that Butler wanted to send a message to the fairies trying to infiltrate Fowl Manor, and so gave the message for Grub to deliver.
Grub would like nothing better than to have a desk job for the rest of his life. This is clearly stated in Page 55 of Artemis fowl: The Opal Deception.
In the early eighties, when Billy Kong was still known as Jonah Lee, and when he was living with his mother and brother, his mother had to take up two jobs for a living. Jonah would be left with Eric, 16 years old at the time, in the evenings. One night, when Jonah was watching the television, Eric came home all bloody. This piqued Jonah’s interest, and Eric decides to tell his little brother a tale that will keep his little brother out of trouble and danger. Eric tells Jonah that he and his friends were attacked by demons— creatures who are human by day and monsters by night. According to Eric, they attack humans and are able to peel their faces off like masks. In truth, Eric had simply been seeing a girlfriend of the local gang leader, and the gang leader had found out. That night, the gang leader sent out his gang after Eric, and Eric had been hurt, but he still got away. He spouted the demon story so that Jonah would stay at home at night, keep the doors and windows locked, and not go outside at night and get in danger.
Eric was finally killed in a gang fight one night and Jonah was forced to believe that demons did not exist, beginning to realise his brother had made up the story. However, later as Billy Kong, he becomes involved in the demon-catching plan of Minerva Paradizo’s. This causes him to lose his grip on reality, and he believes once again that demons killed his brother. The specimen of the demon that Minerva abducts happens to be №1, a warlock demon who is not at all bloodthirsty. Billy Kong, the ever vengeful and violent murderer, decides to kill №1 and in the process not only jeopardises Fowl’s and Minerva’s plans, but also №1’s life.
The last mention of Billy Kong was when Butler (disguised, and with Minerva) turned him in to the police for an old murder in Taipei, where he is wanted by the police as Jonah Lee.
Dr. Damon Kronski
№1 is a bit of an oddity, even for a warlock. He detests many demon traditions, including eagerness to warp and discrimination against imps. He even had nightmares about the spirits of the dead animals he had eaten coming to him and pleading. He first (accidentally) used magic in a dispute with Leon Abbot, the head of the demons, when he turned a wooden poker from the fireplace into stone and penetrated Abbot's armour after Abbot had challenged him to do so. Leon Abbot tried to kill him by mesmerising him to jump in the volcano on Hybras. This, however, failed to kill №1, instead successfully sending him to Earth.
He was then kidnapped by Minerva Paradizo. Before he was liberated, №1 developed the gift of tongues in a conversation with Billy Kong, in which he shrieked, "How can I talk straight, you son of a three-legged dog? I don't speak Taiwanese!" in perfectly fluent Taiwanese. He was liberated by Artemis and his allies, and later played a part in saving both Minerva and Hybras. He used his power of the "gargoyle's touch" to free Qwan, and was one of the five in the magic circle that brought Hybras back to Earth at the end of the book. He allowed Qweffor to seize complete control of Leon Abbot's body, to the delight of the newly freed warlock.
№1, though intelligent, is somewhat childish in many of his habits. He is shown to be quite naive at times, misinterpreting the implications of words said, or directed at him. He enjoys stating the obvious, and explaining things of little relevance. He is extremely docile, even by Warlock standards, and for a good portion of book five, possessed very little self confidence or pride, often wishing himself away when he was being bullied, rather than wishing the actual bullies away. However, at the end of The Lost Colony, he stands up against Abbot, thus implying that he was becoming stronger.
His mentor is Qwan. According to Qwan, №1 is the most powerful warlock ever to exist. On Hybras, Qwan states that "In 10 years, he will be able to move the island on his own", when at that time it took five magical beings to move the island. Foaly once said that he sounded like a cheap romance novel, as he talks with medieval vocabulary learned from the book Leon Abbot brought to Hybras and the fact he used an over-romanticized phrase in front of him ("...I have no idea where we are and where we're going, but I already feel more at home than I ever have"). When agitated, №1 uses a large number of synonyms to release his stress. He also has a soft spot for a demoness with red markings similar to his own, who he believes might be his mother.
In Time Paradox he plays the major role of sending Artemis Fowl II and Holly Short back in time and anchoring them so they can come back with the lemur.
In Atlantis Complex Turnball Root attempts to force №1 to keep his human wife, who is dying of old age, young forever.
Turnball was previously a captain serving in LEPrecon, but was forced to quit after he tried to flood a section of Haven City in order to wipe out a competitor who was muscling in on his illegal mining operation. His younger brother stopped him just in time, which forced Turnball to flee to the surface and spend over five centuries on the run, during which he had ninety-six residences, including a villa near Nice. After the incident, Turnball had his own page in LEPrecon's Criminally Insane section.
In LEPrecon, Turnball lures his brother Julius into a trap while testing Holly Short in the Tern Islands, wishing to end Julius's endless chase for him. Along with his two cronies, Bobb Ragby and Unix B'Lob, he traps Holly Short and Trouble Kelp inside human residence on the island and sets Holly up for Julius to "tag" Holly (which would cause Holly to fail her test) while Bobb and Unix had their rifles turned at him. Holly, however, manages to warn Julius and capture Turnball. After being captured, Turnball attempts to commit suicide by swallowing one of his Tunnel Blue spiders, which would rip his body apart from the inside. However, Julius "saves" his brother by forcing some coffee down Turnball's throat, which kills the spider.
Turnball dies in book 7.
The B'wa Kell does various works of illegal smuggling of various human merchandise. Scalene is first featured in the second Artemis Fowl book, Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident where he is flattered by Opal Koboi and Briar Cudgeon with the exaggerated title of "general". Koboi manipulates and involves Scalene and his gang in her plan to seize control of Haven City. They smuggle human-manufactured batteries into the Lower Elements to power their softnose lasers which they use in their attack on the city. After the failure of the rebellion, Scalene is incarcerated at Howler's Peak Goblin Correctional Facility.
In the fourth book, Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception, Scalene has a minor role when he is visited in prison by Boohn, one of his thousands of nephews. Boohn covers his uncle in his own shedded skin, therefore able to disguise Scalene and allow him to escape from Howler's Peak. Scalene is then mesmerized by a crazed Opal Koboi, whose wit was behind the whole escape. She straps Scalene to a bomb and attracts her enemies, Julius Root and Holly Short, to meet with the dazed Scalene, still under her hypnotic influence. Short and Root are led into the trap. When the bomb detonates, Scalene and Root are both killed instantly, while Short narrowly escapes.
Commander Ark Sool was the highest-ranking gnome in the Lower Elements Police, introduced in Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception. An unusually tall and thin gnome, without the usual love of golden jewellery, like rings, necklaces and piercings, he is a strict and stubborn adherer to regulations. His no-nonsense attitude often pits him against the centaur Foaly, the fairies' chief technical advisor, and inadvertently causes Sool to assume that Captain Holly Short was the only possible murderer of Commander Julius Root.
There is a dwarf saying that he 'wouldn't know what to do if his pants was on fire and he had a bucket of water', and a description that he was 'the king of red-tape'.
Throughout the book, he narrow-mindedly pursues Short without considering other possible suspects. In reality, Short was innocent; she had been set up by the pixie genius and megalomaniac Opal Koboi as part of her plans for revenge. Even after Holly is cleared of the crime, Sool intends to keep a close eye on her to catch any infractions. His promotion to LEPrecon Commander compels Captain Short to leave the LEP so she can serve the Fairy People without having her every action scrutinized. It should also be noted that Sool has few friends due to his domineering nature, and was the only one of the eight tribunal members who found Captain Short guilty. In the fifth book, Sool lost his position as head of the LEP after it was revealed that he planned to allow the eighth Fairy family (Demons) to die off. His successor is Trouble Kelp.
In book 7, he is one of Captain Turnball's henchmen, looking after his wife until Turnball escapes from prison.
Jon Spiro is a wealthy and shady businessman. He is a powerful business man with mob connections and it is thought that his company made it to the top with stolen research, but it was never proven. Jon Spiro is a power-hungry megalomaniac. A perfect example of his power going too far is the fact that he had the ballroom doors of the sunken Titanic recovered from the ocean floor and brought to the Spiro Needle to be used as his office doors. The Spiro Needle, owned by Spiro, is the headquarters for Fission Chips. He is shown to get very angry at times, taking it out on others.
As one of his assistants reveals once, Spiro has a brother, but does not want to mention his brother's existence.
He is described as "a middle-aged American, thin as a javelin, and barely taller than Artemis Fowl himself." He usually wears a white linen suit—his trademark—and a large amount of gold jewelry. He also wears an ID bracelet, which was a "birthday present to himself". He is on a strict diet, wearing a vitamin dispenser on his belt. He is revealed to have "gut problems" suggesting he has Ulcerative colitis or Crohn's Disease. Both diseases are triggered by stress, fitting his personality.
Artemis Fowl arranges a meeting with Jon Spiro at a renowned seafood restaurant to discuss his invention called the C Cube. During the meeting, however, Spiro outwits Artemis by disguising assassins in the restaurant where they have lunch. He stole the C Cube and left Arno Blunt, his bodyguard, to kill Artemis and Butler. Near the end of the book he is set up by Artemis Fowl and arrested by a SWAT Team.
In the first Artemis Fowl novel, Chix Verbil has a very small role; all that is required of him is to:
Blow up the door holding the troll, or as he says it "blowing the door off its damn hinges."
Stand guard over the ransom money, which he fails to do.
The book says on Chix, "But Chix Verbil's ill-fated quest to impress the dames is, once again, another story. In this particular tale, he serves only one purpose. And that is to melodramatically push the detonate button. Which he does, with great aplomb."
In Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident, Chix Verbil shows himself to be an amateur Don Juan, and practices his moves unsuccessfully on Captain Holly Short while on a routine surveillance shift on Chute E37, a closed Parisian pressure elevator. While doing a routine flyby and thermal scan, two grey moving objects are detected. Immediately, Holly Short is in communication with Foaly, who admits that someone may have defeated his system, because when the thermal scan finds a grey zone it means that there are no living organisms. Holly quickly commands Chix to fly up to the surveillance pod, but Chix is too busy attempting to flirt with his attractive Captain to pay much attention. At that moment, a laser fired by the B'wa Kell Goblin Gang punctures a hole through his wing.
Sprites have seven major arteries in their wings and the wound is large enough to have ruptured at least three. It is life-threatening due to sprites' limited healing powers. Holly risks her life to go into the firefight and drag Chix to safety. She heals the wound, but the injury prevents Chix from flying long distances again. The healing makes Chix pledge a debt to Holly. He is in the very low rank of Private in this book.
In the fourth book Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception, Chix Verbil (now a captain) interviews kleptomaniac dwarf Mulch Diggums, who breaks into a shuttleport so that he can steal a shuttle. After telling Chix that Holly Short is alive but in danger and that Opal Koboi has escaped, Chix reluctantly allows Mulch to "knock him out" and steal a shuttle (fulfilling his debt to Holly, as Mulch was doing it to help her). Later, Chix then relays Mulch's message to Foaly, who checks on Opal Koboi's status, which leads to the discovery that the Koboi in the clinic was a clone, which prompts Commander Ark Sool to order the launch of the supersonic shuttle.
In book 7, he receives a message from Holly about the space probe heading for Atlantis. He does not tell Commander Kelp about it immediately because he thinks it's a prank message from his poker buddy Crooz.
Appearing in minor roles or briefly mentioned in most of the earlier books (completely absent from Eternity Code) where she is consistently supportive of Holly Short and Julius Root, Vinyáya's first major appearance is in Book 5: Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony in which Holly is recruited by Section Eight. Captain Short was one of her pupils for flying courses in the LEP Academy. She quipped in Holly's report that "she could pilot a shuttle pod through the gap between your teeth", both a compliment and a subtle jibe, in reference to the fact that the first time Holly flew a shuttle she crash-landed it within six feet of Vinyáya.
Commander Vinyáya also stops dyeing her hair by the fifth book, Artemis Fowl: The Lost Colony, revealing her natural colour to be silver. According to Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident, Vinyáya is an accomplished marksman, demanding an electric rifle to help shoot the goblins with; Trouble Kelp later comments that "she hadn't missed yet".
In book 7, Commander Raine Vinyáya is killed by a space probe commandeered by Turnball Root. It is revealed she has a brother called Tarpon Vinyáya, who is the warden in the prison at Atlantis who inadvertently allowed Turnball Root to escape.
It is revealed in the first chapter of "The Atlantis Complex", her first name is Raine.
