Bows are devices used to launch arrows. Arrows are wood shafts with tips made of Celestial Bronze, Imperial Gold, Silver, or simply regular materials (such as aluminum or carbon).

A bow is a curved stick with a string tied to both ends. They are usually made of animal tendon and horn. Arrows are thin sticks with a sharp tip, sometimes a rock or metal arrowhead, with animal feathers to help it fly. The Hunters of Artemis have silver bows and arrows.


An arrow is pulled onto the string of a bow (nocked). The arrow is then released, the string propelling it into the target.

A quiver often made of wood or leather holds the arrows.
