Artemis Fowl is a 12 year old criminal mastermind. A member of the now infamous Fowl family, Artemis' father was on a cargo boat when it sank, and is presumed dead. This leaves his mother estranged, and the Fowls without their massive wealth. In order to regain both the wealth and restore the Fowl name, he plans to capture a member of what he believes to be an underground society of undiscovered creatures, more commonly known as fairies, and hold him/her for ransom. Artemis' plan succeeds, but he captures Holly Short, the first female fairy to become an officer in the LEPrecon police unit, the law enforcement group for the entire underground society. This prompts the rest of the LEPrecon to launch a rescue operation to get Holly back at all costs.
