First met in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, Athena was a former Lance Assassin who defected after learning that the Vault Hunters’ goals align with her own. Originally a NPC, now Pandorians can look forward to playing as this badass in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Not much is known about Athena the Gladiator at this point, but let it be known that “this kitty has claws” and we are looking forward to seeing them put to use. Based on her history from the Borderlands 2 DLC, she has epic combat skills and will make for a great soldier-like character in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.


Gamer and cosplayer, Lili Din, has cosplayed several video game characters from Lilith to Lara Croft to Elizabeth. Her recent Athena cosplay stood out to us with her amazing attention to detail on all aspects of this cosplay from hair/makeup to clothing to props. Her Athena cosplay is so perfect that it looks like a screenshot from the game!
