Nuvola apps important Spoiler Alert!

Warning! This page contains spoilers for The Dark Prophecy.

It’s okay if you don’t get it. But I want you to know, Emmie didn’t give up your divine gift lightly. After sixty-odd years together with the Hunters, we discovered something. It’s not how long you live that matters. It’s what you live for.

The Dark Prophecy

Josephine is a Greek demigod daughter of Hecate and a retired Hunter of Artemis, along with her wife, Hemithea. Both of them, together with their adopted daughter Georgie, are the current caretakers of the Waystation, a safe haven for refugee demigods, satyrs, and all sorts of immortals.


In the 1920s, Josephine disguised herself as a man and encountered several gangsters such as Al Capone. Sometime after this, she joined the Hunters of Artemis. During her service there, Josephine met and fell in love with her fellow Huntress, Hemithea. Both decided to part their ways with Artemis on good terms in 1987, and live their regained mortal life together.

Josephine is overly friendly and enthusiastic with a love of machines. She deeply cares for her spouse Hemithea and her daughter Georgina. She also treats all the residents at the Waystation as part of her extended family.
