This hero was proposed but was rejected by the community for not being admirable enough or lacks what is necessary to be a purely good hero. Therefore, this hero shall be added to our "Never Again List", where proposed heroes rejected by the community shall be placed to prevent future proposals of the same do-gooder. They can be proposed again (with the permission of an administrator) if new elements appear in their series that can change their status as non-PG heroes.

Any act of adding this hero to the Pure Good category without a proposal or creating a proposal for this hero without the permission of an administrator will result in a ban.

Analytical psychology is going to revolutionize this stodgy institution!
~ Athena's determination to bring psychology into legal matters
Every human being feels fear. You just can't face the feelings inside of you because you have nothing. No love, no trust [... ] I didn't have anybody to support me at first either. I couldn't face the fear inside of me, couldn't get over the trauma of my past.

knock Knock! "Who's there?" This evidence and that statement. "This evidence and that statement, who?" They contradict each other, that's who!

Athena Cykes is one of three defense attorneys in the Wright Anything Agency, working in this capacity alongside Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice. She is a specialist in analytical psychology, which she studied in Europe. Cykes has a special ability to pick up subtle emotions from witnesses' voices, and she examines these using a program called the "Mood Matrix". The Mood Matrix is linked to her AI partner Widget, who hangs around her neck, that changes color with her emotions.

When she was a little child Athena's mother was murdered by a man in a mask who broke into their family residence. Due to her incredibly sheltered and depressing childhood (and her believing herself to be a tortured guinea pig by her psychologist/scientist mother), Athena had a twisted mental state which made want to mutilate her mother's corpse (to try and "fix" her); the incident left her with severe PTSD. Years later Athena, who has worked hard to turn herself into a confident sporty lawyer, was accused of the murder from her childhood. The truth behind it, alongside Athena's real role in the incident, and the truth behind her mother's apparent "torture" she inflicted on her, was eventually revealed; when Athena learned what she had done to a mother who loved her so much, she experienced a major psychological breakdown.

Despite this, she was able to overcome her past via the aide of Phoenix Wright, and Apollo Justice, and has since moved on.
