Athena Asamiya, who bears the name of a wise goddess from Greek mythology, has mastered the art of hand-to-hand combat thanks to her master Chin Gentsai. The girl, who also possesses psionic abilities, never uses her acquired skills to harm other people and always follows her moral compass, which makes her a worthy leader.
She closely communicates and trains with Sie Kensou, who also owns telepathy, but is in no hurry to improve his skills. Kensou sees Athena as a love interest, but the heroine does not respond to his advances due to her shyness.
Athena tries to be polite in any society, always comes to the aid of those in need, and dramatically appreciates her fan base, formed through a successful career as a pop singer. She can sometimes be overly serious about the hardships of life, but she always finds the strength to move forward thanks to her moral principles and virtue.
Athena is fluent in Wing Chun, one of the styles of Kung Fu. Her fighting style is based on simple strikes and psychic abilities. Asamiya relies on her agility and precision to control the flow of battle, pitting speed against more vigorous opponents.
Athena is known to long-time fans of The King of Fighters as a character who monitors her appearance and regularly changes her image. In The King of Fighters XV, she cut her purple hair into a bob, swapping out her classic sailor uniform for more practical clothing.
