the goddess of military victory and wisdom.
Athena was Hercules half sister, her parents Zues and Metis. Metis was a nymph. When Metis was pregnant with Athena Zues ate Metis because there was a prophecy that the child born of Metis after Athena would later become the lord of the Heavens. When the time came for Athena to be born, the smith Hephaistos opened Zues's head and Athena stepped out, in full armor.
