* In the epilogue of ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10917821/29/The-questionable-burdens-of-leadership-of-a-troll-Emperor The (Questionable) Burdens of Leadership of a Troll Emperor]]'', Warmaster [[OriginalCharacter Setsuna]] finally retires after several hundred years serving under Naruto and Xanna against their enemies. She'd taken their offer of [[EquivalentExchange eternal youth in exchange for her fertility]] so she could see the Goa'uld exterminated then continued because the Celestial Empire still had enemies to fight. Once there were no major enemies to fight anymore, Setsuna asks Naruto to restore her mortality and fertility (along with a request for him to father her child) as she feels her job is done and she would like to die eventually. It's noted that before her retirement Setsuna had viewed her house/apartment as nothing more than a place to sleep when not in the field.
