Athena Asamiya is originally from the action arcade game Psycho Soldier (1986) and is a descendant of Princess Athena from the game Athena (also released in 1986). Athena also starred in her own RPG called Athena: Awakening from the Ordinary Life, which was only released in Japan on PlayStation.

A Japanese schoolgirl, Athena Asamiya teamed up with her friend Sie Kensou to fight in the name of justice. In Psycho Soldiers, she was one of the "heroes of light" who defended the world from the Shiguma forces. Her psychic powers are believed to be transmigrated to her rather than inherited by her family.

She became a student of Kensou's Kenpo teacher, Chin Gentsai. She has spent most of her life secluded in China's mountains training. By the time of the KOF NESTS saga, Athena Athena became a famous pop idol in Japan. Athena is well aware of Kensou's crush on her but usually ignores his romantic advances since he embarrasses her.

Athena has become quite the SNK pop star over the years. Even though she has a piercingly annoying voice, and she's consistently been annoying to fight against in nearly every game she appeared in, there's "something" about her that I like... maybe it's because she has a ridiculous number of different outfits/appearances. It's a close call between her and Yoshimitsu; who has the most outfits. lol. 

Her many appearances allowed SNK to kept her design fresh over the years, and it's pretty cool to see how far she's come in terms of "style". If I had to pick a favorite outfit of hers, it would be her KOF2003 attire. ;)
