I am the protectess of young girls

until the time they have become of age to marry

My home, the mythical island of Asteria

I was born a twin

alongside my brother, Apollo.


Hunting, the wilderness, wild animals, protecting and the bright round sphere

are all my passions

but my true love was Orion

the mortal I loved but killed

because of my brothers trickery.


His jealousy took away a part of him,

believing I paid no attention.
