Artemis Fowl

Artemis Fowl is the main character and protagonist of this novel. He is a thirteen-year-old criminal genius from a wealthy Irish family who invents the C Cube using fairy technology. When Artemis meets with Spiro to offer to keep the C Cube off the market for a year so Spiro can sell his stock, Spiro steals the Cube, deciding to keep the technology himself, and orders Blunt to kill Artemis and Butler. Butler is shot, but Artemis freezes him in a cryogenic mobile unit and contacts the fairies who are already on alert because the C Cube pinged their security system. Holly heals Butler and agrees to help Artemis retrieve the Cube for fear Spiro will learn about the fairies, but after the mission, Artemis and Butler must submit to a mind wipe to purge their memories of anything related to the fairies.

In Chicago, Spiro is furious that his tech department cannot unlock the eternity code on the C Cube, so he sends Loafers and Mulch to kidnap Artemis so he can force him to unlock the Cube. Having worked with and befriended Artemis before, Mulch warns Artemis and becomes involved in the plan to retrieve the C Cube. Artemis agrees to unlock the Cube for Spiro, enlisting the aid of Holly, Mulch and Juliet Butler in his plot to steal the Cube back. He leaves Butler behind to hide records of their fairy knowledge in hopes of retrieving it after the mind wipe. Upon arriving at the Spiro Needle, Artemis delays unlocking the C Cube until the next day, allowing Holly, Juliet and Mulch to break into the Spiro Needle using information gathered from the surveillance technology planted on Artemis. Holly breaks into Spiro's room to copy his iris scan and borrow his thumb to unlock the vault, but when she returns the thumb, she realizes that Spiro left a double in his room. Meanwhile, as Artemis tries to retrieve the C Cube, Spiro appears, explaining that he used a double because he suspected Artemis of scheming to retrieve the Cube. He forces Artemis to unlock the eternity code, but Artemis opens the Cube to Foaly who reports to Spiro. Mesmerized by Holly, Pex and Chips suggest Spiro should use the Cube to steal projects from his main competitor, Phonetix; however, the Cube must be on site to access the closed system, so Spiro leads the group to Phonetix where Juliet dials 911. Using fairy technology and a quick wit, Artemis and his friends retrieve the C Cube, erase Artemis from the surveillance footage inside Phonetix, and set Spiro and his cohorts up to be arrested. Back in Ireland, Foaly performs a mind wipe on Artemis, Butler and Juliet, erasing their knowledge of the fairies. Luckily, Artemis gives Mulch a gold coin encrypted with a copy of his fairy data, instructing Mulch to return it to Artemis in several years so he can restore his memories.

Jon Spiro

Jon Spiro is the antagonist of "The Eternity Code." He is an American man from Chicago who owns Fission Chips, which has made him a successful IT billionaire despite his shady past and alleged Mob connections. Spiro is a short, thin middle-aged man. When Artemis meets with Spiro to offer to keep the C Cube off the market for a year so Spiro can sell his stock, Spiro steals the Cube, deciding to keep the technology himself, and orders Blunt to kill Artemis and Butler.

Domovoi Butler

Domovoi Butler is a giant Eurasian man who works as Artemis's bodyguard. He is mortally wounded when he takes a bullet to protect Artemis. Artemis stores Butler in a cryogenic chamber to buy time until he convinces Holly to heal him. Unfortunately, the Kevlar melds with Butler's skin during the healing, making it difficult to breathe, plus he ages around fifteen years because Holly's magic is not strong enough to heal him without using some of his life force. After he heals, Butler does not accompany Artemis to Chicago to retrieve the C Cube, staying in Europe to hide Artemis's fairy files for them to retrieve after the mind wipe.

Back in Chicago, Spiro orders Pex and Chips to bury him, but Mulch digs his way out of the ground and helps with the C Cube retrieval. Artemis hacks into the LEP records to change the date of the LEP's search warrant to the day after they raided Mulch's house, ruining their case against the dwarf. Artemis gives Mulch a gold coin with encrypted fairy data, along with a note for Mulch to return to Artemis in several years so his fairy memories will be restored, promising they will be unstoppable together.
