modern greek mythology: athena, goddess of wisdom, war, and other crafts. 1/2: "She is striking. it’s not her eyes, her nose, her cheekbones. it’s the strength of her mind, radiating from her core in tsunamis, overpowering and reshaping whole islands. she smiles like she knows the secrets of the universe, like she’ll find out anything. if knowledge is power, then she’d be the most powerful being you know.
