The Medallion of Acrata is a medallion that consists of letters that translates into "Leviathan". Andrea believed her powers came from the medallion but was told it came from herself, her inner darkness.
Lena Luthor had Andrea as helpful company to retrieve the medallion when Andrea fell into a pit, she discovered its location along with a messenger that tells her that she is destined to take it and keep it secret. Or else her father and everyone that learn anything about Leviathan dies. After the expedition, her boyfriend Russell Rogers found the medallion and Leviathan agent then attacks him until Andrea convince them that he can be useful as an assassin. After years using the medallion power to do Leviathan's dirty work, Andrea uses it again to break inside the D.E.O. to break Russell out of there instead of killing him. She would give it to Lena as part of a Blackmail to save Russell. Lena would translate the character on the medallion and investigate what is Leviathan with the help of Eve Teschmacher's memories
