Character Description: Athena Areios

As prime minister of Olympus, Athena Areios has a very tough job... but then again, she is a VERY tough woman. A first-generation Bioroid, she doesn't have the emotional limitations that other Bioroids have, so she has more latitude to pursue unconventional avenues, like the finding of Deunan Knute. But she has to be careful, for not only are the seven elders are watching her, but so is General Uranus, and she cannot afford any missteps.

Athena Areios There was another reason that Athena was so obsessed in finding Deunan. A long time ago, she had worked closely with the creator of the Bioroids, Deunan's mother Dr. Gilliam Knute, and had also taken care of the young Deunan, so finding her is a personal one, mostly out of honor to her creator.

After Dr. Knute's death, Athena had lost track of Deunan, as her father had taken her and trained her as a soldier. Athena knows that Deunan has in her possession the secrets for reactivating the Bioroid's reproductive cycle, also known as 'Appleseed', so she has to make sure that Deunan can recover the lost information... or all Bioroid life is doomed.
