I am a fiction character that follows these criteria:

A maiden huntress, whose life was brief
I left my brother with a lot of grief
Died fiddling with lots of gears
My friends, my friends, cast a lot of tears

HINT #1:

Chapter 3: [This character] Makes a Choice

I think the answer is:

Artemis fowl (In the seventh book, "The Atlantis Complex")

A maiden huntress, whose life was brief

in the ancient Greek religion and myth, Artemis is the goddess of the hunt, the wilderness, wild animals, the Moon, and chastity.

I left my brother with a lot of grief

Colfer(The author) has said that he based Artemis on his younger brother Donal

Died fiddling with lots of gears

In the seventh book, "The Atlantis Complex", Artemis contracts a mental disease called Atlantis Complex disease, similar to OCD,and has a strange fascination with bivouacking. Artemis finds himself obsessed with the number 5 and fearing the number 4- (which in Chinese sounds like the word for death).

My friends, my friends, cast a lot of tears

The disease worsens throughout the novel, leading to his distrust of his close friends.

  • $\begingroup$ Wasn't my original answer, but I think it works too! (If no one gets it in a couple days, I'll post the original answer.) You can try to figure it out! $\endgroup$ – Tzu Li May 3 at 22:42
  • $\begingroup$ I really don't think it does quite work, and I hope the intended answer fits more closely. I see the "maiden huntress" bit, but don't you think everything else here is a big stretch? (Not that I have anything better...) $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan May 4 at 2:12
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, and the "life was brief" also is a bit stretchy. I'll give a hint. (It's a quote from the book the character appears in) $\endgroup$ – Tzu Li May 4 at 5:20
