Weapons officer for the team, and a crack shot. She also has feelings for Red, but has to contend with Scarlet over Red's feelings. Scarlet has the obvious advantage of being Red's pre-mate of course, and when Scarlet had disappeared and Artica had to take her place in the co-pilot's seat, Red merely said, "You're only keeping that seat warm...".
Artica is reported to be a bit less mature than most, but this mainly comes not only from the fact that she's the youngest of the crew, but she was also born and raised as an only child who practically got anything she wanted (which didn't quite settle well with her, as her parents were so busy with work that they rarely ever spent time with her, using gifts and such to replace their presence). Her powers consist of cryokinesis, and she can even create ice golems. During off-duty, she and Scarlet work as models for Phenix's fashion company.
