Ibid, the Owl of Wisdom is the beloved pet of Athena and eternal companion. It has a very special power that causes anyone who holds him to gain infinite knowledge. He is featured prominently in the episode "Hercules and the Owl of Athens", where Ares wished to shave him in revenge for Athena shaving his Dogs of War. Athena lends him to Hercules to guard him from Ares. When Hercules comes to know of Ibid's special power to increase one's knowledge, he uses him to cheat in a test. Ares' sons, Fear and Terror, also use him to finish a game (having never gone past "Start" before). Ibid is generally seen with his mistress Athena when she appears. Like his mistress, he is blue.
