Zeus, lord of the Gods of Greece, realizes that humans are losing faith in him and his offspring—something that will, eventually, drive the Gods into extinction.
Fearing the end of his power—and the loss of those he loves—Zeus arranges for those he loves most to be sent to the human world and reborn with no memory of who they were—and what they could do.
The Goddess Athena, shorn of her powers, her knowledge (and her clothing) wakes up next to the Parthenon that was built in her honor in a human body—with no memory of who she was.
Years later, re-educated and working as an investigator for the District Attorney of New York, she finds herself interacting with others who are much like her—and finds that when danger threatens, she still has someone watching over her.
Someone who is ready to undo what has been done—and loose the wisdom and power of ATHENA on Earth once more.
