About This Athena Wallpaper
The Story of Borderlands the Pre-Sequel takes place between Borderlands 1 and 2 and play as one of the henchmen that help Handsome Jack for the greater good. One of these new Vault Hunters is Athena, we first met her in the General Knoxx DLC of the Original Borderlands. There she was a Lance Assassin, a “top operative” of the Crimson Lance and a leader of the Omega Squad. But after your adventure of destroying the Atlas Corporation, she defected and traveled Pandora as a guns for hire. In desperate need for money she responded on a offer by the low-level hyperion programmer we know as (Handsome) Jack and took the job to become a Vault Hunter.
In Greek mythology, Athena was a goddess of strategy, just war, and wisdom.
Now Athena, the Gladiator, is a Badass captain america like character with her shield that packs some nice perks. With the shield you can absorb enemy fire and then send this back at them by throwing the shield, the Kinetic Aspis. One of the upgrades is that the shield can ricochet onto multiple enemies, lots of fun!
This Athena Wallpaper is all about her shield, the Kinetic Aspis. Because the main artstyle of Borderlands has always been something with ink splatters, this is something i returned into this wallpaper by creating multiple layers of different colored splatters. I hope you also like this wallpaper of Borderlands the Pre-Sequel and set it as your background to pimp your desktop theme, don’t forget to rate and if you like leave a note.
