Borderlands: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx
Athena is a former Crimson Lance Operative motivated by revenge over the death of her sister at the hands of the Crimson Lance Mercenary Corporation's lies. Despite her superior talents as a mercenary clone with the gift of the deadly skills of an assassin, she becomes the captive of Mr. Shank at The Lockdown Palace. Mr. Shank does this in hopes that he can cash in on the supposed existential bounty out on her head. Upon being broken out of prison by the Vault Hunters, she can be found in T-Bone Junction.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Fighting alongside Nisha, Wilhelm, and Fragtrap; Athena makes her first appearance as a playable character and second appearance in a Borderlands game. Athena is unique amongst the playable characters in the Pre-Sequel because she serves as the narrator to its framing device, in which Athena is telling the story of her group of Vault Hunters to Lilith and her original Vault Hunters after the events of Borderlands 2.
