* Athena, a [[GreekMythology Greek goddess]] of warfare. Contrasting with Ares, a god of warfare [[BloodKnight who was more into war for the inevitable bloodshed]], Athena was more related to strategy and heroism. She is also a goddess of wisdom, being the daughter of Metis, aka ''cunning itself'' (well… [[{{Squick}} kind of a daughter]]). Being a patron of both war and wisdom meant she was a creator of technology, teaching humans how to use war chariots, for example. She joined UsefulNotes/TheTrojanWar to help the [[BadassNormal mortal]] Diomedes to stick a spear in Ares, driving him out of battle. One of the epithets for Athena was Promachos, or "she who fights in the front," possibly the UrExample of the LadyOfWar.
