Artery is a character from Darren Shan's The Demonata series of books.
He is one of Lord Loss' favourite familiars, and the brother of Vein.
Artery was a demon with green skin, with a body size simular to a childs. In stead of hair he had, leeches, lice,maggots or cockroaches devouring the flesh of his scalp(different insects in each book he featured in). He also had no real eyes, just sockets filled with balls of fire.
He had wickedly sharp claws and in each hand he has mouths in the palms of each hand.
He's also shown, on the cover of Demon Thief, that he has large pointed ears.
