Your Field Guide to Spotting Atalanta

Atalanta might be a little hard to spot because she's a super-fast runner. A lot of times, she'll just be that blur zipping by in the blink of eye. If you ever catch her sitting still, though, you'll see that she's a handsome woman, usually dressed in hunting clothes. Yeah, she was all about hunting, and used to get a lot of crap for being too "manly." She doesn't give a flip what anybody thinks, though. This lady does exactly what she wants.
