You draw an indelible mark on the subject worthy of Athena's blessings. You designate some behavior on the part of the subject that will activate the mark, such as acting selflessly to save others. When activated, the mark blesses the subject with Athena’s grace, as if cast by a cleric of your level. The minimum AC bonus granted by the Athena’s grace triggered by this spell is 5.

A mark of Athena cannot be dispelled, but it can be removed with a break enchantment, limited wish, miracle, remove curse, or wish spell. These restrictions apply regardless of whether the mark has activated.

This spell may be cast only by a paladin or cleric dedicated to Athena.
