Artemis Entreri is one of writer R. A. Salvatore's better known characters from his Forgotten Realms books. Artemis Entreri was born in Calimport, and that was where the assassin learned his trade. When Artemis Entreri was given an assignment to kill Regis the Halfling, he ran into more than he bargained for - Drizzt Do'Urden.
Entreri, the ultimate assassin, had finally met his match and he and Drizzt go on to become major rivals.
Artemis Entreri was introduced in one of R. A. Salvatore's earlier books. The Sellsword's series features Artemis Entreri and Jarlaxle the dark elf as the main characters.
