* DivineParentage: All Scions are born from a union between a mortal and a deity, or at least a god-aligned magical being. However, biological heritage isn't all-encompassing; a Scion genetically tied to one deity can be "adopted" by another, gaining powers more in lieu with its adoptive parent-god than its divine one.

* OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous: Inari in 2E stands at the point where agender and pan-gender overlap; Inari appears in many forms of different genders, seeing gender as just another appearance the Kami can take, another tool to help fulfill Inari's duties. The only pronoun used for Inari in the writeup is "Inari".



* BeleagueredBureaucrat: Poor Yama is the death god of ''three'' separate pantheons (four, counting the Palas) and has to schedule seeing his own children days in advance. "Paperwork" is one of the types of trials he uses to test his Scions.

!'''Loa / Orishas'''

The Voodoo pantheon, who devote themselves to working on the local level, working to better local communities. However, such focus can mean the Loa sometimes miss the forest for the trees, losing sight of the big picture.

* NWordPrivledges: They don't like the word "Titan", viewing it as a slur used against gods the others don't like the purview of. They ''will'' use it to describe a deity acting like an asshole, as they're idealists, not stupid. They just don't think a working relationship with mortals should prohibit you from being hit with the insult.
* TheHeart: They have friendly relations with nearly all of the pantheons, even the Atzlanti. 2E has them on friendly terms with ''Titans.''
* WhiteAndGreyMorality / GreyAndGrayMorality: This is their opinion of what any inter-divine conflict actually is in 2E, including the Titanomachy; they don't actually have any Titans themselves (even the god of smallpox is also the god of healing it and was relieved when the virus was rendered extinct) and thus they look rather askance at any conflict that claims "inherent nature" as a reason for intractable conflict (not to mention that brings back unpleasant flashbacks of what happened to their own people).

* TheFatalist: Actually one of their Virtues in 2E is ability to deal with the unavoidable nature of the Wyrd. [[TheAntiNihilist The other is ability to accomplish things in spite of it, including spinning it so others will live]].
* OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous: Loki in 2E is referred to with gender-neutral pronouns; they were born biologically male, but as Slepnir's continuing existence shows they are comfortable with whatever gender their current form is.



* InsufferableGenius: Their FatalFlaw in 2E, they have a tendency to assume they are the pinnacle of divine skills and consistently underestimate everyone, though they do recognize when they've been shown up.

* TheQuisling: During WW2, she allied with the Koreans against her home country after [[WhatTheHellHero the Japanese stole Korean national treasures and violated another country's sacred temple]], which led to her being censured by the Amatsukami. Though she eventually [[AintTooProudToBeg swallowed her pride and begged to be allowed back in]] - all part of Imhotep's plan.

* TheMole: The story hooks says that one of them is working for the Titans. Which one is left up to the Storyteller.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: The plan to cut the World off from the Gods and Titans is ambitious, audacious, and will require a lot of blood and betrayal, but it's all worth it to give humans control over their own destiny.

Added DiffLines:

* DivineConflict: With the Yazatas. Originally, the two groups were divine factions that went to war over territory, ideology, and religious practice; the conflict between them established them both as distinct pantheons, and has been foundational to their mutual identities since, both identifying the other as Titans. These days, it's settled down into a [[SpaceColdWar cold war]].
* MultipleChoicePast: A common thing for them in 2e, with their writeups frequently listing their multiple mythical origins.
