Now, at a conference in Iceland, Artemis has gathered the fairies to present his latest idea to save the world from global warming. The central theme of good vs. Greed is the first main theme that is introduced into the book, and specifically the desire to obtain gold.

Artemis and gang then agreed to split up. A giant magical corona forms around the Beserkers gate, releasing every fairy's spirit. He needs a copy of a book, which tells about the history of the fairies and spells out their rules and regulations for behavior. Stanley Kowalski is the perfect example of a deceptive person. Artemis's complex makes for a great new character addition.
