↳ athena

Although her mother’s identity is a subject of great debate, most agree that Athena was born in full battle-gear from Zeus’s head, and gave a mighty war-cry. Her eyes were said to be terrifyingly bright and either grey or blue, and she carried the head of a gorgon on her shield to intimidate and scare her enemies. In any case, Athena was the virgin goddess of wisdom and crafts, but at the same time a goddess of war and heroics.
