Athena is one of the 12 Olympians of Greek mythology, being one of Zeus' many godly children and often perceived as one of his favorites. Athena is often associated with her brother Ares as the patron deities of war and combat. Several myths have Athena serving as an important influence in the affairs of mortals, most notably in Perseus' quest to kill the monster Medusa, as well as providing counsel and advice during the long journeys of Odysseus. She is also the patron goddess of one of Greece's most powerful city-states, Athens, named in her honor after they approved of her gift of an olive tree over her longtime rival Poseidon's spring of salt water. Athena is the goddess of wisdom, handicraft, and strategic warfare.
