The Daughters of Artemis favored hunting camps set deep in the woods or near places sacred to Artemis. Occasionally, these camps became larger settlements, most notable among them being their original home of Huntress Village on the island of Chios, and the village of Lamia in Malis.
The emblem of the Daughters of Artemis was a stylized figure of a woman drawing a bow, presumably a depiction of Artemis. They wore furs and animal skins, and had often painted red markings on their skin. The Daughters of Artemis were separated into three distinct roles: Huntresses, Pathfinders (accompanied by a wolf), and Beastmasters (accompanied by a bear).
The Daughters seemed to favor staying out of the Peloponnesian War and stuck to their settlements and the wilderness. However, they were known for harassing the common folk, usually by releasing the latter's animals, but also by threatening those who hunted in 'their' forests. They also sometimes disturbed religious practices or downright destroyed statues and shrines.
