The ship massed about one million tons, and was known for having shipowners' suites, as well as military-grade impellers and defensive weaponry.
In 1910 PD, the destroyer HMS Hawkwing was ordered to guard the Artemis, since Klaus and Stacey Hauptman were traveling to the Silesian Confederacy aboard her. The liner was commanded by Margaret Fuchien at the time. While travelling through the Selker Rift with her convoy, the ship was ambushed by Havenite raiders, but saved by the Q-ship HMAMC Wayfarer.
