Athena is the daughter of Zeus and Metis, the Titaness of wisdom and thought. Fearing the Fates' prophecy that his child with Metis would one day surpass him, Zeus swallowed the pregnant Titaness whole in order to prevent the birth. Born within Zeus, Athena eventually caused him such a headache that Zeus had Hephaestus split his skull to relieve the pressure; Athena burst forth fully grown and armored. Despite this, Zeus eldest daughter soon became one of his most favored children and trusted advisers. As goddess of wisdom, and tactical, discipline warfare, Athena developed animosity towards Ares, who represented savage war.
