Pallas Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and Nerds

Leslie, naked, with spear and shield, plays AthenaShe sprang from the cranium of Zeus himself, a divine thought found form, and a blessing unto the Gods, the philosophers of men, and the City of Athens. She was the goddess of civilization, wisdom, strength, strategy, wit, craft, raffia-worked bowls, and a divine sponsor of heroes.

The virgin patron of Athens, Athena was a central figure in Greek mythology.

She was also featured weekly in Garth Santoropolous’s game of Dungeons & Dragons; Athena was played with confidence and verve by Leslie Gooddon. She took the role very seriously, but could never manage the virgin part, which was just fine with everyone.
