A superb strategist in battle, Athena, the daughter of the Greek God Zeus, was the Goddess of Strategy, Wisdom and War. In Greek myth, Athena was Zeus' favorite child and the only one he ever entrusted with his power and his secret location of his lightning bolts. The Goddess often served as Zeus' advisor, constant ally and fierce protector.

Athena championed many heroes, offering them her protection and guidance and although she is highly regarded as Goddess of War, she excelled as a mediator and strategist in battle assisting many gods, goddesses and heroes as they faced seemingly impossible tests. She always worked to prevent war, but once war had been joined the Goddess Athena fought efficiently for her side. Nike, the Goddess who personified Winged Victory, often accompanied Athena. Not surprising however, since Athena never lost a battle.
