The goddess of battle received many prayers from warriors charging into battle in her name, though she usually had nothing to do with it. She rarely interfered in the affairs of mortals. And despite what the mortals believed, she wasn’t solely concerned with battle for battle’s sake. Fighting for a righteous cause was closer to her portfolio than senseless killing. Only the bravest and most righteous warriors came to her realm upon their demise, and she was glad to have them. Lesser, misguided warriors usually ended up in the realms of lesser deities, and they – the warriors and the deities – were of little concern to the battle goddess.
The Battle Goddess is a rather imposing minifigure from series 12. Like most of the other minifigures based off famous people (real and otherwise), she immediately reminded me of the Greek goddess Athena, though I think she could just as easily fit into a fantasy setting as well. I love the detail on her chestpiece – especially the bangles on her arms – and shield.
Minifig Monday is a weekly post in which I feature a random LEGO minifigure from my personal collection. Unless otherwise stated, all minifigs have been photographed by me.
