Minerva is a psionic warrior[1] from the plane of Vorbis. Little is known of her, or why she was summoned to Strife. She has a stingray sentinel pet.[2]


"Apes and eels! Bloody hell."

- Minverva(src)



Alongside Rook and MidKnight, Minerva was one of the three heroes who first arrived at the Arena of Strife. They were greeted by LexiKhan, who initiated an exercise—he and Rook defended a generator, while Minerva and MidKnight tried to take it from them. Minerva battled LexiKhan, but was incapacitated by him.

Afterwards, LexiKhan informed the group of the workings of the generators, how they were powered by eels. Minerva warned him that eels were a bad omen, but LexiKhan dismissed her concerns. Seeing that she was injured, he led her and the group to be healed, and showed them statues built in honor of the Keepers of the Code. In response to MidKnight's query about the lack of a statue for Fobus, he showed them the Keeper's former sentinel pet, Krytos. Having had enough for one day, Minerva ordered a brawler to show her to the barracks.[2]


"They'll never see it coming."
