::'''Artemicia'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/artemicia_8691.PNG
--> ''"I shall relish the moment when you finally choose from the many roads ahead of you because that very decision shall only leave misery and treachery in its wake. And when that time comes, what you'll hear will be my laughter."''

The Goddess of Healing and daughter of Nergal. She's self-centered and sees mortals, including her demigod son Leon, as worthless unless they serve her.

Associated tropes:
* DaddysLittleVillain: She is Nergal's daughter and as wicked as he is.
* EvilMatriarch: To her Andain son Leon Alcibiates. She sees him as a worthless, weak fool, beginning from their first interaction where she ended up poisoning him after he had invoked her power to drive off bandits who had tried to mug him.
* HotGod: She is very beautiful.
* PathOfInspiration: Her clergy is basically seen as benevolent for the most part because they do heal people, but the reason for the clergy's existence is far more sinister, and only some of the higher ups know some of the specifics behind it.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: She is considered a benevolent deity but is anything but. Only her most devoted clerics know her true nature and are okay with it.
* WartsAndAll: Her Andain son Leon Alcibiates seeks her out to get her approval, but Leon quickly learns that Artemicia is not as nice as the clergy has led him to believe. A few heroes since then have learned Artemicia's true nature as well and are now opposing her openly.
----

::'''Cardia'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cardia_256.PNG

The God of Order, brother of Hephaestus and father of the [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]]. He guided the godblades Dawn and Dusk to their bearers and set events in motion to oppose the coming of MardŁk. He's devoured by the Godslayer at the end of the Great War.

Associated tropes:
* CoolOldGuy: He is quite old and frail (or at least has chosen such a form when interacting with mortals) and has a weird sense of humour.
* DeathIsDramatic: He is devoured by the Godslayer, which leads to the Cataclysm.
* GoodIsNotNice: He is generally one of the more benevolent deities but depending on his mood he can be quite stubborn, cowardly, indifferent and somewhat self-centered.
* GrandpaGod: He prefers the look of an old man.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He ends up doing this by the time the Third Age begins by telling his followers that the other gods don't exist. His motivations for doing so might have been to aid mankind in the long run, but others justifiably argue that it was a very questionable action to do.
----

::'''Dionysus'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dionysus_4695.png

The God of Wine and Madness, and brother of Laverna. He's a party animal who likes kids and can be a bit mischievous at times.

Associated tropes:
* LifeOfTheParty: He likes to party and tends to liven up the place when he shows up... assuming he shows up in an ''adult'' form, that is.
* MadGod: Well, he ''is'' the God of Madness among other things and acts in rather weird ways... although the 'madness' might be an act of ObfuscatingStupidity to fool his adversaries into underestimating him.
* MasterOfDisguise: He's pretty good with disguising himself when he interacts with mortals.
* TheTrickster: He, like his sister Laverna, can be a bit...''unpredictable'' at times.
----

::'''Hephaestus'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hephaestus2_6604.gif
--> ''"I cannot control my nature, nor would there be any point in denying who--or what--I am. That does not mean I cannot control my actions. I do the best with what I have been given, and the choices I make are my own."''

The God of Smithing, brother of Cardia and father of the dwarves. He is now the head God of Light after Cardia's demise.

Associated tropes:
* TheBlacksmith: He is the patron deity of these and is quite good at forging things himself as well.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Surprisingly enough he's one of the few gods who actually listens to mortals' pleas even though he doesn't act unless things turn really dire. He can occasionally try to ShootTheDog (as the case was with imprisoning the half-god Nyanna who wasn't meant to exist), but for the most part he's been on the heroes' side.
----

::'''Hivena'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hivena_3453.PNG

The Goddess of Love and Fertility. She made the paladin Nesa impregnate her with the first Andain child in millennia in a bid to take over the High Plane, which made a lot of gods angry. The plan backfired when Nesa rescued their daughter and trapped the goddess's essence inside his head to both keep her safe from the gods but also to protect their daughter from her schemes.

Associated tropes:
* BedTrick: In order to trick the paladin Nesa into sleeping with her, she disguises herself as his lover Rhylian.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She seems nice albeit ditzy at first but later shows a more ambitious, sinister side when she reveals her plans of bringing back the Andain to the world and make her the goddess of all other gods.
* DoubleStandardRapeDivineOnMortal: She tricks Nesa into sleeping with her so that she can become pregnant and give birth to the first half-god child in millennia.
* HotGod: She's very beautiful.
* LightIsNotGood: She may be a love goddess, but that doesn't act her from acting in a rather selfish way.
* LoveGoddess: Hivena is the Goddess of Love in the pantheon.
----

::'''Laverna'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/laverna_4435.png

The Goddess of Thieves, sister of Dionysus and mother of the {{kitsune}}. She's trapped inside her follower Haruko's body and schemes to free herself and make Haruko regain her memories to bring her plans into fruition. She eventually succeeds in doing so by possessing one of Haruko's newborn twins after speeding up Haruko's pregnancy, intending to use the twins in the future.

Associated tropes:
* BiTheWay: She hits on both men and women.
* ManipulativeBastard: She likes to toy with people's emotions to get what she wants. Whether she cares for her thief followers and is simply keeping them on edge for her own amusement or if she merely sees them as pawns isn't known.
* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: She's trapped inside the body of her follower Haruko when a spell that released both of them wasn't finished properly during the Day of the Damned festival.
* TheTrickster: She's rather unpredictable, but she veers more towards Darkness than Light in her dubious actions.
----

::'''MardŁk'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marduk_661.PNG
--> ''"I am MardŁk of Chaos, and the worlds will burn at my hand!"''

The God of Chaos, brother of PaedŁn and Dreamweaver, and father of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]]. Most people saw him as evil force who wanted nothing but drown the world in Darkness, but he actually had a tragic past which led to his descent into villainy and eventual death. He's devoured by the Godslayer at the end of the Great War.

Associated tropes:
* BigBad: He took this role during the Chaos War in the First Age and became the true BigBad at the end of the Great War in the Third Age.
* DeathIsDramatic: He is devoured by the Godslayer, which leads to the Cataclysm.
* FallenHero: He was quite heroic until he lost his brother Dreamweaver to the Nameless Evil. The grief over his brother's loss along with his half-god son Kagetsu's betrayal of the gods and the Unnamed Evil's subtle manipulation eventually [[StartOfDarkness turned him into a twisted version of his former self]].
* MotiveDecay: He initially harnessed the power of Chaos and Darkness to make his demon followers grow stronger and subjugate the weaker races so that he could amass a strong enough, ''united'' force to resist Death's growing influence. However, his single-minded goal eventually twisted his originally noble intentions and he ended up focusing only on the subjugation of other peoples and turned demons into the horrific monstrosities they are today.
* SealedEvilInACan: He ended up as this for a time after he'd been sealed at the end of the Chaos War. It took him several millennia until he was released at the end of the Great War.
----

::'''Nergal'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nergal_2704.PNG
--> ''"You may have won a battle, but the war is far from over! Remember: I ''am'' War!"''

The God of War, brother of Shakkan, and father of Artemicia and humans. He is now the head God of Darkness after MardŁk's demise.

Associated tropes:
* BloodKnight: He is ultimately this albeit in a more villainous way. He constantly tries to manipulate events in order to cause more bloodshed although he also has ambitions to become the god of gods. He is not foolish enough to actually get himself in a position that might get him killed, though, but he has nothing against fighting powerful enemies through host bodies.
* TheChessmaster: He prefers to set the stage for his schemes long in advance by manipulating events when needed.
* WarGod: That's in his job description. He likes to spill blood to grow stronger and manipulates events so that wars will keep going on for the unforeseeable future.
----

::'''PaedŁn'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/paedun_8423.png

The God of Knowledge, brother of MardŁk and Dreamweaver, and father of the Lefein. He and the Lefein end up sealed by the other gods because his quest for technology is seen as a threat to the gods' power.

Associated tropes:
* SealedGoodInACan: He and his Lefein followers end up imprisoned by the Gods of Darkness because his technological mastery is seen as a threat which might turn the tide for the Gods of Light.
----

::'''Phil'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/phil_8225.png

The God of Arseholes and Bastards, and possible father of the Scuns. Devoured by Gaea... or so the legends say.

Associated tropes:
* JerkAss: He was so annoying that his own mother Gaea ended up eating him. Everyone cheered except for Phil.
* PosthumousCharacter: He's dead long before the story begins and has fallen into obscurity although he kind of lives on in the Scun creation myth.
----

::'''Shakkan'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shakkan_6667.PNG

The God of Beasts, brother of Nergal and father of the [[LizardFolk Sirithai]]. Has mood swings and can turn from friendly to hostile depending on cirumstances. He's more concerned with the well-being of beasts and his children and is willing to fight for them.

Associated tropes:
* TheBeastmaster: He is pretty much the lord of most beasts, having created the monsters and the lizardfolk.
* CapturedSuperEntity: He has been trapped twice: first by Nergal into a chained host body in the Ruined Kingdom, and then by Awar into a shard of Krystallopyr in Xibalba.
* MadGod: Millennia in imprisonment have left him rather unstable. Despite his quirky acts, he can listen to reason but his mood can swing quickly from one extreme to the other. And for all his erratic actions, he's thankfully still nowhere near Dionysus's level of randomness...
----

::'''Tiamat'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tiamat_tga_8951.png

The Goddess of the Sea. Worshipped by the Blue Dragon pirates. Can be benevolent and fierce...just like the seas themselves which she represents.

Associated tropes:
* MakingASplash: One of her powers, obviously.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: She likes to use her divine trident in battle.
----
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Land of the Dead]]

::'''Death'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/deathlord_1372.png
--> ''"It is inevitable."''

A chilling, sinister being of immense power who rules over the Land of the Dead and commands the spirits of the dead with an iron grip. He has been subtly manipulating the events of various planes of existence over several millennia.

Associated tropes:
* BiggerBad: He has manipulated events in various planes of existence since he seized power in the Land of the Dead and has been behind several people's corruption into {{BigBad}}s over the three ages.
* TheChessmaster: He is a master manipulator who has the patience to corrupt individuals over a very long span of time.
* TheCorrupter: He has corrupted various individuals into powerful villains over the ages.
* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: Dreamweaver was a handsome god once, but once merged with the Unnamed Evil which resulted in the birth of Death, the Evil within turned him into a mockery of his former self. He can hide his true look and appear more benign, however, for purposes of deception.
* FallenHero: There used to be the god Dreamweaver whom the [[UltimateEvil Unnamed Evil]] corrupted and merged with. This union gave birth to the being which became known as Death.
* TheUsurper: He forcibly took over the Land of the Dead and turned it into a horrific mockery of its former self where spirits of the dead are in eternal torment.
----

::'''Gaea'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gaea_5046.png

The former Goddess of Earth and mother of the gods and the [[TheFairFolk Faerfolc]]. She was slain by Kagetsu the Dark [[DivineParentage Andain]] during the War of the Andain, and her spirit ended up in the Land of the Dead where Death has made her his consort. She has now become the Queen of the Underworld. Her clergy resurrected her millennia later, but she still needs to regain her divinity.

Associated tropes:
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: The end goal of Gaea and Osmond, since she's back now.
* BackFromTheDead: TheRemnant that splintered off from her clergy when she died was finally able to resurrect her, albeit in a mortal body, either as a mortal or a revenant. She finds it... unpleasant.
* BerserkButton: Seems not to like the concept of romance. And [[SchmuckBait do not tell her she reeks.]]
* CloudCuckooLander: Justified due to the strange magic of [[TheLostWoods Survivor's Woods]] and nearby magical items messing with her senses, combined with the fact that she's still getting used to her new body.
* DeathIsDramatic: She's killed by [[AntiVillain Kagetsu]], the Lord of the Andain, who uses her death to demonstrate that gods can be killed if they manifest in their corporeal form and thus can be successfully fought against.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: She's been dead a ''long'' time, and is still coming to terms with it now that she's back.
* FounderOfTheKingdom: She's this to the entire world. The Land of the Living wouldn't exist had she not created it.
* LadyAndKnight: The Lady to [[ThePaladin Osmond's]] Knight. Might be somewhat subverted, since the relationship is neither romantic nor chivalric because of their issues with the situation and each other.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Can't quite remember her demise at that hands of Kagetsu.
* MotherNature: She's the Goddess of Earth and creator of life in the Cosmos.
* OffingTheOffspring: She ends up eating his son Phil, the God of Arseholes and Bastards, because he annoys ''everyone'' with his horrible behaviour. Or so the legends say...
* PosthumousCharacter: She's dead before the story begins. Her story is only told through cautionary tales and flashbacks which point out that gods can in fact be killed if they've manifested in the Land of the Living in their corporeal form...
** ...at least until during the Godslayer Era when it is revealed that Gaea's spirit is now in the Land of the Dead where she has become Death's consort.
*** And ''[[RunningGag then]]'' she gets brought BackFromTheDead by her followers.
----

::'''Grim Reaper'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grimbones_3123.png
--> ''"OH DAMN. SPILT JAM ON MY TUNIC."''

Harvester of Souls, Snarker Extraordinaire, Lover of Strawberry Jam. The Grim Reaper is all of this and much, much more, but he has little time to ponder such things because all the conflicts in different realms keep him busy enough as it is. He's a rather relaxed servant of Death with hidden depths.

Associated tropes:
* BlackCloak: He has one although it has spots of strawberry jam on it.
* ChessWithDeath: He occasionally does this with some persistent spirits who want to return to life, but very few have bested him in a game of chess.
* DeadpanSnarker: He likes to throw snide comments at people and has [[GallowsHumor a weird sense of humour]].
* FounderOfTheKingdom: He's implied to have been the ''original'' ruler of the Land of the Dead before Death took over.
* TheGrimReaper: He handles all the soul-reaping business... ''by himself''. Which often annoys him, considering how busy a schedule he's had thanks to all the wars the Land of the Living has gone through lately.
* LetsGetDangerous: He seems rather relaxed most of the time, but when push comes to shove, he'll show people exactly why he's the Grim Reaper.
* PaintingTheMedium: ''HE TALKS IN CAPITAL LETTERS'', which many interpret as shouting.
* RightfulKingReturns: Averted. Seems content with the status quo as it is.
* SinisterScythe: He uses his scythe to harvest souls.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: He always eats strawberry jam whenever he gets the chance. And he does it quite messily.
* TheTrickster: He sometimes acts like this, teaching people valuable life lessons which people may or may not take to heart.
----

::'''Surma'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/surmatga_6850.png

A terrifying beast with features of a bat and a dog who sometimes accompanies Grim Reaper on his journeys but can just as well be guarding entrances to the Land of the Dead. Despite his fierceness, he can be playful at times.

Associated tropes:
* {{Hellhound}}: His role in the Land of the Dead.

[[folder:Faerfolc]]

::'''Curdardh'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/curdardh_3050.PNG
--> ''"You and your filthy kin have defiled this world long enough!"''

Also known as the Fallen One, he is a violent fae who wishes nothing more than purge the world of any lesser races who he sees as impure. After he ended up in the Land of the Dead, he has become one of Death's heralds.

Associated tropes:
* AxCrazy: He's very violent against anyone he considers inferior to the pureblooded Faerfolc.
* DropTheHammer: He wields a giant stone hammer with which he smashes his enemies.
* TheFairFolk
* SuperSmoke: He can turn himself into mist.
----

::'''Domnhull'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/domnhull_4727.png
--> ''"I am Domnhull. We are the Faerfolc. And now--we are free at last."''

Also known as the King of the Wild Hunt, he is one of the higher lords of the Faerfolc.

Associated tropes:
* TheFairFolk
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Well, as reasonable as a fae can be at any rate. He has aided the Alliance on a few occasions albeit always on his terms. He even is calm enough to hear lesser beings' accusations before lecturing them about responsibility.
* SuperSmoke: He can turn himself into smoke.
----

::'''Morrigan'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/morrigan_3560.png
--> ''"We withdrew from cities that don't interest us because our anger at being imprisoned was assuaged in blood. We have no interest in mortal affairs, but we are back for good and we will brook no interference in ours!"''

Also known as the Phantom Queen of the Pale Moon, she is one of the higher lords of the Faerfolc. She is a somewhat eerie figure who is only interested in preserving her race by any means necessary.

Associated tropes:
* TheFairFolk
* SuperSmoke: She can turn herself into smoke.
* WomanInWhite: She is clad in white robes and has an eerily pale skin.
----
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Nymphs]]

::'''Huldra'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/huldra_1225.png

The Queen of Nymphs who lives in Survivor's Woods. She has lately made nymphs kidnap male travellers in order to use them as a means to father a new generation of nymphs.

Associated tropes:
* NatureSpirit: She's a nymph, a creature of the forest. Like all of her kind, she too is quite liberal about sex.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She sends her nymphs to kidnap male travellers who wander in the woods so that they can have sex and thus ensure that the nymph race continues as they can only give birth to female nymphs.
----

::'''Serene'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/serene_6158.png
-->''"I'm Serene... and it's what we do, alright? We sneak after adventurers and pretend not to... pretend not to want sex."''

A curious nymph who ends up entangled in a big plot about a prophecy concerning Haruko. She acts as the god Shakkan's messenger but often gets distracted by other things.

Associated tropes:
* CloudCuckooLander: She has a very short attention span and sometimes takes a conversation to another level entirely, forgetting that she's supposed to be doing something important.
* TheHerald: She acts as Shakkan's messenger, delivering the god's advice to mortals when the god is unavailable.
* NatureSpirit: She's a nymph, a creature of the forest. Like all of her kind, she too is quite liberal about sex and has rather complex rules about when she's supposed to mate with travellers.
* TheNoseKnows: She can track down Haruko by her scent even in a big city. Javan questions him how she's able to smell anything, but she claims it's because Haruko has [[ForeShadowing a distinct smell which differs from the other races]].
----

[[folder:The Wretched]]

::'''Arbriel Conrad'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/t-arbrielundead_8426.gif
-->''"Misery. That's all that's left in this forsaken land. There is no hope of salvation."''

A disillusioned cleric who joined the Totenkopfs in an effort to weed out non-believers. His dreams of utopia led him to take drastic measures, and in the end he lost his life on the battlefield. However, due to coming in contact with the Plague of Undeath, he didn't fully die and became one of the few sentient undead who can control ''lesser'' undead to an extent as a Deathwatcher. He now wants to increase the number of the undead in the world and make the world feel his pain.

Associated tropes:
* BackFromTheDead: And he [[CameBackWrong came back horribly wrong]].
* BlondesAreEvil: When he was still alive, that is...
* EliteZombie: He retains his intelligence and powers after rising from the dead and becomes a Deathwatcher, leader of the ravenous undead horde in Remon.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In his undead form.
* ManipulativeBastard: He managed to convince a group of believers to kill themselves... and this was before he turned undead.
* OmnicidalManiac: After he has turned undead, he loses what little sanity he has and decides to destroy every living thing in the world and spread his misery.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: He died and rose as undead due to the effects of the Plague of Undeath, the Blood Fever's variant.
* SexyPriest: Arbriel was a very handsome man when he was still alive. As a Deathwatcher, however...
* SinisterMinister: Very much so.
