Athena was a member of the Olympians and the goddess of wisdom and intelligence. She was killed by her brother Ares, the God of War. Centuries after her death, her legacy lives on within the Rock of Eternity, the source of all magic. The Wizard Shazam later bestowed her courage upon one champion who he found worthy to carry on his mantle and become one of the overseers of the Rock of Eternity. This champion in turn shared the power to five other worthy individuals.
- Diana - Paternal half-sister
- Ares † - Paternal half-brother and killer
