On another RPing site, I'm a player in a game set in Ancient Greece (strictly speaking, the *mythological* version of Ancient Greece). I want to create a character of a female warrior, a heroine of "larger than life" variety. And I could use some inspiration from you, people :)
Any ideas for an origin story for such a character? It's Ancient Greece, after all - so, a female warrior would be an unusual occurence. Also, as mentioned, my character needs to be a hero of somewhat epic proportions (or, at least, potential) - so, her origin story needs to be something more special than a story of run-of-the-mill hoplite. I'm considering giving this character some sort of ties to the goddess Athena - but that's all I have for now.
