Athena Bezzerides is a web-camera performer or as Ani states - avant-garde cinema performer who does sex acts for paying customers.
A former drug addict, she is encountered by her sister at a legitimate brothel during Ani's line of duty following a wrong tip-off. It is later shown that Athena is saving money to take up an arts course in California Institute of the Arts. An artist by passion, she makes sand and miniature sculptures.
- Athena is virgin goddess of reason, intelligent activity, arts and literature in Greek mythology.
- Athena believes webcam porn as a venue for creative expression.
- Curiously, her father states the name Athena represents 'love', which is wrong. Whether this was a mistake on the part of the script, or was done to show how her father doesn't really understand the things he thinks he does, is unclear.
