Come, weave us a scheme so I can pay them back!
Stand beside me, Athena, fire me with daring, fierce
as the day we ripped Troy's glittering crown of towers down.
Stand by me - furious now as then, my bright-eyed one -
and I would fight three hundred men, great goddess,
with you to brace me, comrade-in-arms in battle!

–Homer, The Odyssey

Athena, also known and worshipped in Ancient Rome as Minerva, is the Pagan Goddess of  Wisdom, Sciences, Defensive Warfare, City Defense, the Arts, Crafts, and Skills of the Greco-Roman Pantheon.

She is part of the High Olympia Council, holding the Sixth Throne and is in charge of Mount Olympus' defense system, as well as the head strategist of the Divine Army of Olympus. She is the daughter of Zeus and Metis, thus making her the step-daughter of Hera. She is the younger half-sister of Persephone, Hephaestus, Artemis, and Apollon, as well as the older half-sister of Hermes.

During her exiled to the mortal world, she met and fell in love with Uriel - the Archangel of Madness and Clarity, and eventually becoming his wife.

During the Azazel Cup, she and her half-brother Ares are members of the Team Imperial Lords of the Battleground, led by Verethragna, with her being the sole Knight of the Team.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Athena appears as an innocent young girl in her early teens with a fierce and magnificent beauty that rivals goddesses such as Hera and Aphrodite. She has short platinum-blonde hair that reaches her shoulders and startlingly, cold grey-colored eyes that always seem to be trying to find ways to take out anyone in front of her.

She wears a simple white-and-gold toga with intricate designs and patterns, a sheer off-shoulder cape made out of fine silk, and golden sandals. She also wears a circlet made out of precious metals on top of her head, and a golden armlet.

When on the battlefield, she wears a golden armor with white clothing underneath, a flowing cape behind her back, embroidered with images of her past victories in golden threads, and her famous spear and shield on her hands. Vali described her in this form to be "... both glorious, yet terrifying at the same time" and "... striking terror into the hearts of her opponents".

In Chapter XXX, when she first appeared to Griselda, Athena appeared as a beautiful young girl around 16 years of age, with dark-colored hair tied into a high ponytail with a black scrunchie, black plaid blazer and short skirt with a dark-grey vest and white dress shirt underneath, knee-length socks and a pair of black mary janes. She was described to be speaking in a New York accent, and had her nails painted black.

Personality[edit | edit source]

As a goddess of wisdom, Athena is exceptionally brilliant, quick-witted, and disciplined; she always takes precautions before acting and is the type of person who disapproved of taking considerable risks, which was the reason for her disapproval for Griselda receiving training from Ares. While this obviously left her with a negative opinion of her and made the goddess seemed cold and calculating, she still conceded with the reasons for her perspective and her opinion of her weaknesses. Griselda actually noted that she might be the worst enemy someone could make, for she would never give up or make a rash mistake simply because she hated someone. Athena has a soft side for those who seek knowledge and tries to help them as much as she can, with the most notable examples being Odysseus and Perdix, both of whom she protected and greatly supported.

In battle, Athena is a fierce, astute, and extremely unpredictable warrior and tactician. Despite her calm and reserved demeanor, she could become intensely focused in a duel, to the extent where one could easily believe that she and her sparring partner were actually fighting to the death. She is renowned for her frequent assistance of heroes on their heroic endeavor, even if those heroes don’t specifically pray for her help. She is able to put aside personal grudges, or at least for a time, to either help those who were desperate or to serve the greater good. She once helped Bellerophon despite him being a demigod son of Poseidon, assisting him in capturing and taming the famed winged-horse Pegasus, which set him on the path to becoming a hero. She later helped Griselda when she had to face against Stheno, despite still disapproving of her after worth.

Athena has a sense of justice and fairness that even her own allies and champions aren’t exempt from, an example being how she punished the Grecian soldiers on their journey back from Troy for raping and killing innocent Trojan women and children. This extended to those who had offended her, as shown by how, despite her wrath toward Arachne, she still found Arachne’s fellow citizens, who had benefitted from the weaver and yet still quickly turned on her after she mercilessly beat Arachne, to be disgusting for having laughed at the girl. Despite being a War Goddess, Athena doesn’t enjoy combat but rather accepts it as an inevitable necessity at ties, focusing more on minimizing casualties while still trying to achieve victory.

As far as the gods go, Athena could be helpful and sympathetic even to those who had initially offended her, as shown when she blinded the mortal Tiresias after he saw her bathing, she quickly cooled her anger after hearing about his lack of nefarious intentions and how truly apologetic he was about the incident, even gifting him the ability to understand the language of the bird. Even against Medusa, who had broken her vow of eternal priestesshood right in one of her temples by the hands of her uncle Poseidon, she still protected the young girl by blessing her with the power to petrify all the men who wanted to harm her, even transporting her and her sisters to one of her private islands to live in peace, far from the lands of Ancient Greek.

Athena despises anything Roman, from the culture, to even the heroes and demigods of the Roman part of her Pantheon. This is due to the Romans not considered Minerva as a true War Goddess, making her more of a defensive/strategic adviser and artist (the Romans looked down upon defensive maneuvers, for the most part, always falling back on them as a last resort even if she completely corrected in suggesting a retreat. This is because the Romans always attacked others to defend themselves). Because of this, she hates the Romans with all her essence and wants every single trait and influence to be erased. Her hatred against Rome even goes as far as allying herself with various other Pantheons subjugated by the Romans to plan a rebellion and brought in Christianity to shake the foundation of the Roman people's faith and belief, allowing the other gods she secretly allied with to rebel against the Olympian gods. Even after the Divine Roman Imperial Pantheon collapsed and she was severely punished by her father, she still harbors great hatred toward Rome and its people.

Athena can be extremely prideful and stern, having a dark side just like other gods: she transformed Arachne into a spider to her hubris and mockery against her and the gods, and cursed the flute (aulos) that she had created only because playing it grotesquely altered her facial features. After Paris picked Mastema as the most beautiful Grecian goddesses instead of her or Hera, they influenced the Trojan Prince into kidnapping Helen from her husband and family in Sparta, leading up to the Trojan War which she even took the side of the Greek despite her previous actions - a testament to her vanity and capacity for vengeance. Hermes stated that one of the first things her servants and employees learned is that “Athena is the best at everything and any thought to the contrary is not taken well”, showing that not even those in her employment are immune to the effects of her vanity. Despite her pride rivaling her father Zeus’, Athena is able to admit that she was wrong, something that isn’t in the nature of most deities, even remotely close. In Chapter XXX, she apologized to Griselda for thinking that she might be a danger to Olympus.

Athena is undoubtedly head-over-heels in love with her husband Uriel, even though she couldn’t express her love to him in public. Due to her, “innocent” nature as a former Maiden Goddess, she is still embarrassed and naïve about love and is too prideful to admit it to others, leading up to many teasings from her husband and those who know about their relationship, such as Mastema or Gabriel. Because of her former crime for rebelling against the Olympians, she is secretly afraid of Zeus’ reaction about their relationship, as the God-King is known for his mistrust toward the Abrahamic Pantheon, especially toward those from the Christian Faction.
