Athena and Minerva are paramours of Sherlock Holmes that are always seen together.
|With Kitty Winter having left for London, Holmes finds life at The Brownstone lonely, having gotten used to having someone living there. Athena and Minerva visit and while lounging in front of the fire on the "sex blanket", Holmes talks to Athena about the Black Dahlia case. He's unable to get an opinion from Athena concerning his hypothesis so wakes up Minerva who is equally uninterested in the murder. Both appear interested in further "matters of the flesh". ("Hemlock")
|In the wake of beating Oscar Rankin and relapsing, Holmes requires a diversion. He uses Athena and Minerva to recreate a 1927 murder scene involving two women, hoping that he'll be able to solve it. While examining the scene, Athena's phone rings, disturbing Holmes' thoughts. Minerva complains that the recreation isn't fun so Sherlock asks for their indulgence as this may be his last action before he is charged with assault and jailed. Joan Watson then calls, disturbing Holmes further. ("The Past Is Parent")
