Athena is the Lady of Caprica, daughter of Archduke Adama, and sister to Crown Prince Apollo.

Alongside Professor Baltar and Count Iblis, Athena is one of the creators of the babbage computer Lu-c-fer, the coordinator of the Cylonics. This creation lead to the end of the Colonial Empire's war with the Ovions.

Following the end of that war, she engages in a relationship with Lord Cain of the aethership Pegasus, despite the disapproval of her father.

She visits Pegasus prior the Cylonics attack on Caprica, but leaves before the aethership is destroyed. She reports this death to Adama, who writes off not only Cain but also Apollo.

With information provided by Fleet Admiral Tigh, she and her page Boxey leave in her bubbleship to the pirate-infested outer world of Rising Star. Their mission is to secure the assistance of former Flight-Lieutenant Starbuck to search and recover Apollo from Baltar's clutches.

Before they depart in Starbuck's Starchaser, their mission is interrupted by two sparring Queens of Rising Star, Cassiopeia and Sheba, who seek reparations for Starbuck's questionable actions (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 1).

Athena later flees with Starchaser's crew, ending up on the remains of Carillion and captured by Ovions. As a matriarchal society, Athena is pressed into service to speak on the captives' behalf, advocating for the Ovions to join their fight against Baltar and the Cylonics. In parlaying with Queen Lotay, Athena offers herself to be tried for war crimes and is willing to submit to any punishment, up to and including her execution (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 2 and 3).

Following the successful attack against the Cylonics on Gamoray, Athena becomes the leader of the Ovions following the death of Lotay and marries Major Starbuck (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 4).
