I think that a huntress would ahve to contribute her life to the hunters and to Artemis. It takes willpower and courage to he a huntress.

Also, afraid, cause they sold part of their life for immortality, you'd have to be pretty afraid of death to do that.

Being a Maiden forever - I'm happy to be a bloke tyvm Razz

Immortality - Is it truly worth it? An unending life of loneliness, constant danger until the day you get killed or break your oath, that would be a very difficult burden

Serving a god - well a lot of benefit, however knowing how grumpy and violent their characters were in Real Greek mythology (not PJ's human friendly version of the gods) i really wouldn't want to be close to them, too changeable.

I can't, cause we know that Annabeth loves Percy, so doesn't that stop here from being a hunter???

Exactly lol, the whole idea is she cannot be a hunter whilst in a relationship, or permanently if she slept with Percy. Thats the whole idea of them being a bunch of maidens they are like mini Artemis'.

But, has Artemis been in a relationship??? Cause gods/goddesses aren't very good at keeping promises.

Artemis is one of the few Goddess' who have sworn themselves to be maidens. Not likely to break an oath to herself, and there is some story about her turning some bloke who spotted her bathing into a deer or something and he was hunted down by his own hunting hounds.

But, wasn't oaths on the river Styx supposed to be unbreakable, but the gods broke their promises anyways so who knows.

Anyone know exactly why Artemis became huntress or swear eternal maidenhood? The gods constantly breaking their vows is why I would never want them having influence over my life.

Hunters you think men. Biased but true. Artemis becoming a huntress and swearing off men for maidenhood. I think she had men issues.

At three years old, Artemis asked her father, Zeus, while sitting on his
knee, to grant her six wishes. Her first wish was to remain chaste for
eternity, and never to be confined by marriage. She then asked for
lop-eared hounds, stags to lead her chariot, and Nymphs to be
her hunting companions, 60 from the river and 20 from the ocean. Also,
she asked for a silver bow like her brother Apollo. He
granted her wishes. All of her companions remained virgins and Artemis guarded her own
chastity closely. Her symbol was the silver bow and arrow.

Sourced from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemis#Childhood

Other stories tell that Apollo killed Orion to protect his sisters chastity. Orion being Artemis' hunting companion.

I agree she most likely got her heart broken.

I think Artemis became a sworn maiden because she didn't want any relationship troubles. She and Apollo were born of (in most versions of the myth) Leto and Zeus. Hera was jealous, understandably, and so cursed Leto so that she could neither give birth on the mainland or an island. In the end Leto found the floating Island of Delos, and there gave birth to Artemis, and then with Artemis' help gave birth again this time to Apollo. Some versions say that Artemis had to help because Hera had kidnapped the Goddess of childbirth...No wonder Artemis strayed away from relationships.

Lets face it the Gods aren't good at relationships. They are never faithful, except Hera who is frighteningly so, and every time the Gods have an affair, someone gets cursed and/or gets transformed into an animal. This is especially sad when a male God 'takes advantage' of a beautiful mortal female, and the woman gets the punishment. Artemis was probably very wise to stay out of all that.

Would you think immortality is cool though. Remember it is very painful to watch someone you watch and know grow-up and then die.(Regular immortality, as the hunters are so isolated they probably don't have many attachments to people, especially with the no love thing)
