'''The Council of Shadows'''

A quote their last meeting:
->'''(Not sure which one...)''': ''Yes, we know what you're planning. We planned what you ate for breakfast this morning.''

They meet beneath the Pantheon/{{Mentalism}} council chamber. It's a small room with a circular table. [[SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands (Yes, there's a One-Way Video/Two-Way Voice crystal ball in the table's center.)]]

Every meeting, there's an envelope there for each person gathered-and only that many. They talk lightly, [[CrypticConversation but their words carry meaning in multiple layers]]. It's impossible to understand them unless you [[YouKnowTheOne already know what they're talking about]].

They can only guess what the others' identities are-[[TheFaceless they hide their faces in shadow after all]]-but they probably already knew who everyone else was before they first met. They are [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness all-knowing and sparse-speaking]].

All of them deny being the one to form the Council of Shadows. Maybe it's true and someone else planned them. Maybe not.

No one knows what they're planning, but their fingers are everywhere. It is they who plan the great initiatives, and are behind many attempts at overthrowing gods and preventing such from occurring, sometimes manipulating both the assassin and the defender who stops him into place. At present, they are involved with an attempt at conquering the pantheon by a [[Manga/OnePiece brigade of pirates]], although if they are responsible for luring the pirates, aiding those stopping them, or both is unknown and perhaps unknowable.

There are those who theorize that the majority of them aren't planning anything at all; like Tzeentch, they spend much of their time in a darkened council chamber making cryptic comments simply because their nature as dramatically inclined schemers and manipulators compels them to do so. And then, of course, there are those who joined simply to keep an eye on their rivals in the Council...

Don't let the lesser status of some of them fool you; [[TheChessmaster they don't]] ''[[TheChessmaster need]]'' [[TheChessmaster brute strength]].
Below is the entire list of members...probably:



[[folder:Keel Lorenz]]
'''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Keel Lorenz]], God of [[MinorMajorCharacter Important Tertiary Characters]] and Divine Head of the OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness'''
* Rank: [[EpilepticTrees Uncertain]]
* Symbol: A monolith with SEELE's emblem embedded on it
* Alignment: LawfulEvil (sees himself as LawfulGood)
* Portfolio: [[TheManBehindTheMan The Man Behind SEELE]], [[BigBad Eva's True Antagonist]], [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Ambiguously Characterized Conspiracies]] [[EpilepticTrees Incredibly Speculative Figures]], [[AssimilationPlot Will Unite Everyone As One Being]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist To End Pain Everywhere]], [[{{Cyborg}} Robotic Attachments]], [[MinorMajorCharacter Minor Major Characters]], [[spoiler:[[TheBadGuyWins Succeeds at Instrumentality]] ([[MindScrew maybe]], [[AndIMustScream maybe not]]) ]]
* Domains: Ambiguity, Conspiracies, Philosophy, Extremism
* Allies: [[Pantheon/{{Sadness}} The White]], [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Lysandre]]
** Former allies: [[spoiler:[[Pantheon/MentalismOther Gendo Ikari]] ]]
** [[UnwittingPawn Unwitting Pawns]]: [[EpilepticTrees God only knows]]
* Enemies: '''[[Pantheon/{{Travel}} AZ]]''', [[Pantheon/MainHouse Lucifer, YHVH, The Emperor of Mankind]], [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} The Chaos Gods]], [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Yuuki Terumi]], [[Pantheon/{{War}} Treize]] [[Pantheon/{{Personality}} Khushrenada]], [[Pantheon/RangedWeapons Okita]]
* Opposed by: The entire Grand United Alliance of Chaos
* Keel Lorenz is a mysterious figure; almost nothing is know of him prior to Second Impact. Some say he is the WanderingJew, waiting all this time to end pain. Others say [[AGodAmI he wants to ascend to godhood.]] He claims that he's [[EvilOldFolks sixty-seven.]] No-one's sure, but it is known he was active before Second Impact and essentially leads his version of Earth since then. Publically, [[BitchInSheepsClothing he leads NERV to "save" humanity from]] [[EldritchAbomination the Angels.]] In reality, he just doesn't want them to mess up [[spoiler:the Human Instrumentality Project]].
* As head of SEELE, ''the'' OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness, Lorenz wants to keep the full extent of his organization's power ambiguous. He will often spin contradictory tales of [[AncientConspiracy its age]] and [[GovernmentConspiracy reach]], all part of a misinformation campaign to eliminate leads. No matter how powerful he is, one thing is certain: ''[[MindScrew no-one]]'' knows
* Spends most of his time dwelling in the Council of Shadows, which many believe he funded. [[EpilepticTrees Due to mass speculation involving his group]], he has issued a "cease and desist" order from the House of Wild Mass Guessing, for continuing to pester him.
--> Keel Lorenz: "It's been over twenty goddamn years, leave me alone!"

[[folder:Johan Liebert]]
'''[[Anime/{{Monster}} Johan Liebert]], God of [[TheSociopath Sociopathy]] and [[MoreThanMindControl Mind Control Without Superpowers]]''' (The Antichrist, The Monster, The Next Hitler)
* Intermediate God
* Symbol: "The Monster With No Name" by Franz Bonaparta (''Creepy'' Children's Book).
* Alignment: ChaoticEvil ([[ForTheEvulz Why? Just because.]])
* Portfolio: [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Brainwashed Crazies]], [[BreakTheCutie Breaking Cuties]], {{Creepy Child}}ren, DissonantSerenity, [[EnfantTerrible Enfants Terribles]], {{Freudian Excuse}}s, MoreThanMindControl, NightmareFuel, Evil Blond Guys, {{Evil Twin}}s, {{Manipulative Bastard}}s, [[MindRape Brain Breaking]], ForTheEvulz, [[LightIsNotGood Evil Light]], [[CommieNazis Alluding]] to the [[TruthInTelevision existing German Neo-Nazis]], [[TheSociopath Sociopathy]], [[CompleteMonster Absolute Immorality]]
* Domains: Chaos, Domination, Madness, Evil, Mentalism, Retribution, Trickery, Corruption
* Allies: [[Pantheon/{{Family}} Hansel and Gretel]], Lucy, Melkor, Monokuma, Vaas Montenegro, [[Pantheon/{{Villains}} The Red Skull]], [[Pantheon/{{War}} The Millennium]], [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Griffith, Yuuki Terumi]], [[Pantheon/{{Laughter}} The Joker]], [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} Yuno Gasai]], [[Pantheon/PersonalAppearance Nui Harime]], anyone who's had a horrifying childhood and became horribly evil as a result
* Enemies: everyone else...but ''especially'' Nagi. In actuality [[Pantheon/{{Justice}} Raiden, Captain America]], Batman, [[Pantheon/{{Ambiguity}} Guts, Kiritsugu Emiya]], [[Pantheon/{{Heroes}} Superman, Kenshiro, Hakumen]], [[Pantheon/MainHouse Madoka]] [[Pantheon/{{Magic}} Kaname]], [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} Akari Mizunashi]], Herr Doktor Tenma, [[Pantheon/{{Friendship}} Naruto Uzumaki, Nanoha Takamachi]], [[Pantheon/PersonalAppearance Asuka Langley Soryu, Kaworu Nagisa]]
* It is believed that all who look upon him will be driven insane or brutally murdered. This is not because of any mystical properties on his part so much as it is that he will hunt you down, and he will ''[[BreakingSpeech break you]]''.
* Has gained the admiration and devotion of [[Manga/BlackLagoon Hansel and Gretel]] and Yuno Gasai mainly gained from his ability to know which twin is male and which is female, personal experience helped, for the former, and manipulating the latter (in conjunction with Yuuki Terumi's trolling) to brutally kill Kaede Fuyou [[spoiler:([[AdaptationalVillainy The anime edition]])]] in a fit of rage that had caught the attention of [[Pantheon/{{Ambiguity}} Guts]], [[Pantheon/{{War}} The Doom Marine, Kratos]], and [[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance Jack The Ripper]].
* Plays the straight man sociopath to Joker's AxCrazy psychopath when the two meet, though no one is quite sure what goes on during these encounters as every non-EldritchAbomination gets the hell out when they do.
* It is rumored that the DNA Voice inside Lucy's head is actually Johan Liebert taking in the form of a naked girl wrapped in bandages commanding her and the Diclonius to kill humanity.
* He's somehow very fond of [[Manga/ElfenLied Lucy]] for [[{{Expy}} some reason]], and has recently 'married' her, forming an UnholyMatrimony between the two.
* He's been called as ComicBook/TheJoker of Anime and Manga. [[BigBadDuumvirate The two have formed a group]] called the GUAE Liebertarian Movement, and its purpose is to spread "Lieberty" (which is in reality is eternal suffering and despair).
** After hearing news about the "Great Upheaval" and that the Witch system is reinstated as a result, he has taken to great lengths to break every magical girl into a witch, aiding in his plan to cause [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt The End of the Pantheon as We Know It]] and also in his plan to cause eternal suffering and despair.
* Given his legendary {{Mind Rap|e}}ing and corruption skills, he pretty much would have made [[VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs Superman's corruption]] quicker than what The Joker did.

'''[[VideoGame/HalfLife G-man]], God of Total Secrecy, [[GambitRoulette Successful Roulette Plans]], and Manipulative Suits '''
* Greater God (Potential Overdeity)
* Symbol: A Briefcase
* Alignment: TrueNeutral to ChaoticEvil; true alignment unknown.
* Portfolio: Unknown
* Domains: Time and Space, presumably. All other information unknown
* Followers: Gordon Freeman, who apparently acts as his (unwilling) physical presence in the world.
* Holding sway over time, space, reality, and some say the Tropes Themselves, G-man is able to act with total secrecy and is presumed to be extremely powerful. Not even the wisest and most knowing Gods have ever been able to track G-man down or find out where he goes or what he has planned. G-man never seems to stay in reality long, much preferring his strange sub-dimension. He doesn't even have a throne within his small chamber in the Main House. G-man seems to be able to manipulate anyone or anything to do his bidding, and the Fallen are his favorite pastime toys. G-man has never been known to act directly. Instead he always has someone else carry out his mysterious plans while he silently watches from the sidelines.
* Despite his incredibly secrecy and uncanny knowledge, Batman can still defeat him, if G-man ever gave him time to prepare. He is careful to never let this happen.
* G-man does not fight, ever. As stated above he will seek out powerful puppets to do his bidding instead, setting down a spark of unrest or a similar dark doing to achieve his desired results. It is possible that he caused [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos's]] and [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante's]] epic battles out of amusement. Theorized to frequently play the SCP Foundation off (with his rivals [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquer Kane]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Xanatos]]) to keep his skills sharp.
* Although he sometimes mentions "Employers", these are more likely dark Gods that have enlisted his services in times of desperation.
* An "offer" from G-man is an automatic sentence of servitude, to refuse is to die.

'''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Tzeentch]], God of [[ThePlan Planning]]''' (Changer of Ways, the Architect of Fate, the Weaver of Destiny, the Grand Schemer, the Great Conspirator, [[WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice the Indecisive]] [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Mollusk]])
* Overdeity
* Symbol: The Number 9. [[http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/250/1/e/mark_of_tzeentch_by_vulgotha-d4961ht.png His Mark of Chaos]]
* Alignment: [[EldritchAbomination Chaotic]] [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Something]]
* Portfolio: {{Magnificent|Bastard}}/{{Manipulative Bastard}}s, {{Gambit Roulette}}s and [[ThePlan Other Kinds of Plans]], MoreThanMindControl, GodOfEvil, [[spoiler:FailureIsTheOnlyOption]], [[EvilutionaryBiologist giving you extra limbs if he damn feels like you should have them]], [[spoiler:StatusQuoIsGod]].
* Domains: Change, Chaos, Evil, Hope, Ambition, Manipulation, Scheming, and Sorcery.
* Followers: A horde of Chaos [[EvilSorcerer Sorcerers]], [[PsychicPowers psykers and sorcerers in general]], those who seek change (whether for better or for worse), and eldritch suits of [[PoweredArmor power armor]] animated by the bound spirits of their former wearers.
* Opposed by: [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Kefka Palazzo]] and [[Literature/{{Dragonlance}} Raistlin Majere]], both of whom, it is rumored, are planning on usurping him.
* Allies: [[Pantheon/WritingTechniques Bernkastel]], [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Yuuki Terumi]], [[Pantheon/{{Ambiguity}} Lambdadelta]], [[Pantheon/ActsOfWar Lelouch Lamperouge]], [[Pantheon/ValuesAndEthics Charles Vi Britannia]], [[Pantheon/MannersOfDeath Suzaku Kururugi]], [[Pantheon/{{Lust}} Slaanesh]], [[Pantheon/{{Trickery}} Doc Scratch]], [[Pantheon/PhysicalAppearance Magnus the Red]] ([[spoiler:though recent events have changed that]]).
* Enemies: '''[[Pantheon/ValuesAndEthics The Immortal God Emperor of Mankind]]''' and all his servants, [[Pantheon/MainHouse The Status Quo]] [[spoiler:(not really)]], [[Pantheon/SpaceManipulation Shu Shirakawa]], [[Pantheon/{{Characterization}} Rika Furude]], Ryukishi 07, The Puella Magi... '''ALL OF THEM''', [[Pantheon/{{Advertising}} Kyubey]], Lord Kroak; [[Pantheon/ActsOfWar Yuji Sakai]], The Crimson Denizens and Flame Hazes ([[HeelFaceTurn post-season 3]]); , [[Pantheon/HealthAndDiseases Nurgle]] and [[Pantheon/{{Colors}} Khorne]].
* Heralds: The Lords of Change
* Battle Cry: '''JUST! AS! PLANNED!'''
* The undisputed Head of the Mentalism Pantheon, Tzeentch has his hand in ''everything'', from who gets greenlit into the pantheon to what kind of cereal you eat in the morning. There have been countless attempts by his rivals and underlings to usurp his position, but he has so far thwarted them all, because he has a plan for everything. ''Everything''.
** (insert obligatory Batman joke here)
* As much a liability to the Council as he is an asset. Because he has his hand in ''everything,'' he's simultaneously behind the Council's schemes ''and'' the schemes of those working against them. Tzeentch claims this is JustAsPlanned, but one gets the feeling he's just playing around.
* The irony of ironies is that, being a creature of primordial Chaos, Tzeentch does ''not'' have an ineffable plan or master scheme to work towards, and instead manipulates others for the sheer joy of it. The fact that it ''appears'' that he has an agenda beyond this is testament to his terrifying talent.
** ''Or'' there '''is''' a plan; it's just so convoluted that no one but Tzeentch could possibly understand it, along with the possibly [[ObfuscatingStupidity seeming randomness]] being just another part of the plan. Such is life with the Great Schemer.
*** Unless, of course, he just ''wants'' you to think that for some inscrutable reason. Or he wants you to think that he wants you to think -- you get the picture.
* Do not mention Gunner Jurgen, the Doom Marine, the Angry Marines, or ComicBook/SquirrelGirl around him.

[[folder:Light Yagami]]
'''[[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]], God of [[GambitRoulette Implausible Strategy]]''' (Kira)
* Theme Music: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3LeZNlI0Xg Light's Theme]] or the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcwQoOsQQJ8 Death Note Theme]]
* Lesser God
* Symbol: A Black Notebook.
* Alignment: LawfulEvil, [[MotiveDecay devolving]] to NeutralEvil
* Portfolio: [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist Allegedly Well-Intentioned Villainy]], KnightTemplar, JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, [[ForeignSoundingGibberish Foreign Sounding Names]], [[MundaneMadeAwesome Disproportionately Dramatic Moments]], {{Gambit Roulette}}s, XanatosSpeedChess, OminousLatinChanting, [[FoeYay Victims Of Foe Yay]], {{Magnificent Bastard}}s, [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans Visions For a Better World]], [[TheCorruptible Corruptibility]], [[AGodAmI God Complexes]], [[{{Narcissist}} Egomania]], {{Ubermensch}}en.
* Domains: Deathbound, Destruction, Justice, Evil, Inquisition, Planning, Retribution.
* Followers: Almost all of Japan.
* Dominic Deegan is plotting for his spot, but Light already has plans for him in case he does (especially for [[Pantheon/ActsOfWar Lelouch Lamperouge]] and [[Pantheon/{{Prophecy}} Dominic Deegan]]). Has allied with [[Pantheon/MusicalCompositions Dethklok]], officially to kill off opponents during their concerts, but has gotten used to their music. (Under their earthly avatar "Bloody Valentine.")
* Zhuge Liang, the Sleeping Dragon, is merely biding his time...
* Recently manipulated Ichigo and Ryuk into representing different views of the afterlife (or lack of). The fear of death can be used to change society; and it's the unknown of death that causes the fear. If even the gods can't agree...
** Virtuous has countered this plan by beginning to work more openly, thus serving as living proof of the existence of an afterlife. The cycle of reincarnation wouldn't need someone to oversee it if it didn't exist, now would it? However, since operating so openly limits her ability to keep secrets, Light counts this as a partial victory.
* Was very close to usurping the Pantheon/MainHouse, but an oversight regarding important documents had turned his latest pawn into an ineffective fool, and the whole uprising was stopped before it started. Now considers the Council's "Dynamic Duo" a threat on par with Xanatos himself, [[spoiler: and that's just fine for the Overlord himself.]]
* Disgruntled at Popeye for only selling spinach, not potato chips that he can eat ''epically''. And that he can't write his name on the Death Note because the power of Death Note is compelled with the power of spinach (he tried once).
* Hatched a plan to twist the look of [[Pantheon/{{Weapons}} Simon Belmont]]. It succeeded, now Simon looked like him and Light hoped to use him as a necessary scapegoat whenever necessary. It turns out that he is trying to remove all traces of all ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' good guys from the Pantheon, citing them as one of the main obstacles of his plans.
* Has joined forces with [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Emperor Palpatine]] and is helping him with his secret plans to stage a coup d'état against the Main House as his new apprentice, Darth Kira. Those aware of this are secretly amused, and are counting the days until Palpatine recruits a new apprentice, and the old one dies. Again.

'''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquer Kane]], God of ContractualImmortality''' (The Prophet, The Messiah, Cain, The Granddaddy Of Them All).
* Greater God
* Theme Song:

* Followers: The Brotherhood of Nod, as an organized lot, and roughly 50% of his world's population in total. NonEntityGeneral
* Enemies: NonEntityGeneral, once again, GDI, not to mention CABAL.
* Known for orchestrating world wars, pulling off {{plan}}s of unlikely complexity, and quickly recovering from {{Villainous Breakdown}}s.
* Mentioned here because, if there isn't a war on that he has somehow started, then he is certainly planning to make one happen... Might secretly be plotting to use everyone on this page as [[UnwittingPawn Unwitting Pawns]], as well.

[[folder:David Xanatos]]
'''[[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} David Xanatos]], God of [[XanatosGambit Backup Plans]]''' (The Fallen, The Once and Future King)
* Lesser God

* Domains: Evil, Law, Planning, Tyranny
* Followers: Hans Gruber (''Film/DieHard'')
* He may be fallen now, but this is all part of his plan to one day usurp the throne of O-Haruhi-sama. Phase one is complete.
* "And lo, when the Blue Dragon was laid low by the frost and flame, did Overlord Xanatos steeple his fingers and smirk." Xanatos 3:16. Phase two is complete.
* Nerissa has been dethroned. Phase three is complete.
* Has joined forces with Palpatine. Phase four is complete.

[[folder:Ganondorf Dragmire]]
'''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf Dragmire]], God of [[HijackedByGanon Villainous Scheme Hijacking]]''' (Ganon, the King of Darkness/Evil)
* Greater God
* Symbol: His part of the Triforce. Alternatively, a flaming effigy of his head
* Alignment: ChaoticEvil
* Portfolio: [[EvilSorcerer Sorcererous]] {{Evil Overlord}}s, [[AGodAmI Declaring Himself a God]], [[TakeOverTheWorld Conquering Hyrule]], [[DeathIsCheap Reviving From the Dead]], [[TheManBehindTheMan Revealing himself to be the true]] BigBad ([[HijackedByGanon over and over...]] [[OverlyLongGag and over]]).
* Followers: [[VideoGame/MegaManX Sigma]]
* Allies: [[Pantheon/{{Otherness}} Dracula]], Master Xehanort, Dr. Wily
* Enemies: '''[[Pantheon/{{Weapons}} Link]]'''
* He and Link have done battle many, many times. However, no matter how many times Link kills him, Ganondorf continues to return to oppose him. Though some have speculated it has to do with TimeTravel and [[JokerImmunity his standing as Link's archnemesis]], no one knows how he does this. He's gotten smarter in later years and has fought Link through a network of allies and minions to conceal the fact he's still alive, but it hasn't resulted in much more success than when he did it himself.
* Some have prophesied that when the final battle of Good and Evil is almost done, Ganondorf will rise over Melkor's ashes and proclaim he was the controlling force of the House of Evil all along. Though few pay this theory any mind, Link fully expects it.

[[folder:Revolver Ocelot]]
'''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Revolver Ocelot]], God of {{Magnificent Bastard}}ry''' (Shalashaska, Major Ocelot, Liquid Ocelot, [[spoiler:Adamska]])
* Demigod [[spoiler:(or so he says; in reality a Greater God in line to become Overdeity)]]

* Alignment: ChaoticEvil [[spoiler:NOT! More of a brand of ChaoticNeutral and LawfulGood]]
* Portfolio: {{Evil Chancellor}}s, {{Cool Old Guy}}s, {{Double Agent}}s, [[TheGunslinger Gunslingers]], {{Evil Hand}}s, [[spoiler:Artificial Limbs]], ChronicBackstabbingDisorder (the TropeNamer).
* Domain: Wrath, Darkness, Army, [[spoiler: Cunning]].
* Formerly the High Priest of Xanatos and Patron Saint of Assassins, he attained divinity by betraying him to Azula. Plans to betray Azula right back when the opportunity arises. [[spoiler: It worked, by using the involvement of Nerissa.]]
* Is a ''lot'' more powerful than he lets on.
* Once entered a contest Aizen over who is a better strategist. It is still ongoing after 200 rounds.

[[folder:Bruce Wayne / Batman]]
'''[[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]], God of [[TheCowl Heroes who Fight in the Shadows]]''' (Batman, The Dark Knight, The Caped Crusader, The Darknight Detective, [[ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder The Goddamn Batman]], [[GreatDetective The World's Greatest Detective]], [[Series/{{Gotham}} The Son of Gotham]])

* Domains: City, Darkness, Night, Planning, Good.
* Followers: [[ComicStrip/KnightsOfTheDinnerTable Brian Van Hoose]]
* Keeps a special notebook he wrote that describes in detail how to take down every other god and goddess in the pantheon should they ever become Fallen. He's impossible to defeat as Batman can figure out how to destroy any being in the universe as long as he has time to prepare... except for [[Pantheon/MainHouse Fred Rogers]]. Spends his not-preparing-time mentoring [[Pantheon/{{Nature}} Shikamaru Nara]], and as a result has gained the names and faces of all those members of the Council of Shadows.
* Is rather pleased he no longer has to play [[ToTheBatNoun Bat-Mailman]] since his latest charge ascended, but still must deal with Temari sometimes to get said charge motivated. If there was a woman that ever did fit "troublesome"...
* Some theorize that Batman joined the Council to keep an eye on them and stop them if he needs to. Others think that he just wants to eventually betray them and take them down along with the rest of the pantheon...

[[folder:Sosuke Aizen]]

* Is powerful enough to get a handful of Intermediate and Lesser Gods to do his bidding. The only being able to resist his mind control is [[Pantheon/{{Knowledge}} The Brain]] (being an anthropomorphic mouse). And technically [[Pantheon/{{Nature}} Toph]], as she can't see him.

* Symbol: Black coat-of-arms on black background.
* Alignment: LawfulNeutral
* Portfolio: {{plan}}s, The VetinariJobSecurity, [[TheChessmaster Chessmasters]], {{Magnificent Bastard}}s, [[FascinatingEyebrow The Arched Eyebrow]]
* Domain: Law, City, Tyranny, Planning, Trickery
* Master strategist and manipulator with an eye for details, expert politician. Knows the nature of anyone he observes for more than a few minutes.
* The others have tried to oust him from his seat numerous times for one reason or another, but [[VetinariJobSecurity his "replacements" never quite seem to get the hang of things]], meaning he's always back before the day is done. This is not so much due to a lack of qualified successors as it is the result of Vetinari's plots: he has arranged for things to simply be better for everyone so long as he's in power.
* Rather unusually for this House, Vetinari does not appear to be ambitious; on several occasions he has refused to take steps to add to his domain. This could, of course, simply be because at the moment, seizing more power would interfere with future plans.
* He is a relatively benevolent tyrant. His people can do as they wish, as long as it's also what he wants them to do. Involved in a - well, not quite a friendship, not exactly a rivalry, certainly not a relationship, but whatever it is it's ''extremely'' polite - with [[Pantheon/{{War}} Grand Admiral Thrawn,]] who is a little too focused on open warfare to belong to the Council of Shadows.
** Has come to share a similarly ''polite'' relationship with [[Pantheon/{{Politicians}} Lord Tywin Lannister]] since the ascension of Lord Tywin.

* Followers: The Order Of Black Knights. [[spoiler: ...kinda.]] Kallen Kouzuki, daughter of Domon Kasshu, depending on how badly he's teased her recently. UFN Chairwoman Kaguya, ruler of half the known world. Probably the reason why his public appearances are heralded by busty Japanese and Chinese girls throwing black rose petals in his path. His little sister, Nunnally, ruler of the OTHER half of the known world. [[spoiler: Well, since his ascension, at least.]]
* When not plotting ways to overthrow [[TheEmpire evil empires]], Lelouch engages in the game of kings: chess. Few people who have played him have asked for a rematch. He is one of the few who could successfully challenge [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] -- one of his greatest nemeses -- without using any form of magic.
* As of this day, Lelouch is taking care of the rebellion of HIS OWN PEOPLE against him. Some say his mortal brother Schneizel is behind this, but Lelouch already suspects Light to be behind Schneizel. [[spoiler:Turns out it's Aizen and Palpatine.]]
* He sees Isara Gunther as someone he'd like to protect, as she reminds him of his mortal sister Nunnally Lamperouge. However, Isara is very much abhorred with him. Upon investigation, Lelouch found out that when she was mortal, she was [[spoiler:killed in cold blood]] by someone who [[{{Expy}} acted and sounded like him]]: [[VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles Emperor Maximilian]]. This hardens Lelouch's ambition to topple him, alongside the God he worshipped: Palpatine.
* There are cults dedicated to an older god who held this post, whose name has been lost, but whose epithets "The Prince of Revolution" and "The Steel General" remain; there are prophecies that he will return to reclaim on his eight-legged horse of steel and diamond one day, to reclaim his position. Only fitting, considering the nature of the position.
* May or may not have implanted commands into the minds of the Gods - or their followers - that he doesn't get along with. And maybe some that he pretends to get along with.
* Actually every bit as dangerous without his mind control powers as with. May or may not secretly be a Kamen Rider knockoff, or have the power to summon Giant Mecha with his eyes. Or both.
* Likes wearing masks. As in, literally. And capes.
* Due to eyeing the position, has taken measures to stop himself being influenced by the God of Mind Control.
* Mentioning something like wanting to stop the march of time is one way to piss him off. It's also a way to find yourself running off cliffs for eternity, and that's on an uncreative day.

* Allies: ? (Subject to such constant revision that Pantheon archivists no longer bother to keep track)

* No one is entirely sure exactly when or how Xellos ascended. He just [[StealthHiBye showed up in the pantheon one day without warning, acting as if he'd always been there.]] He's been friendly and polite to everyone thus far, but his true intentions are... [[spoiler: [[CatchPhrase a secret]].]]
* People often assume that he and [[Pantheon/{{Mentalism}} Nagi]] are allies because of their overlapping portfolios. When pressed on the matter, Xellos just smiles and shrugs.
* He is the only member of the Council to know ''exactly'' what every other member is planning and amuses himself by dropping vague and misleading yet completely true hints as to what those plans are in the presence of interested parties. (This may also advance his own agenda, but it's impossible to tell, as he is also the only Council member whose plans are completely unknown to anyone other than himself.) Attempts to get more concrete info out of him are met with his infamous catch phrase.
* No one knows what Xellos' true goals are, so it's impossible to say who he really supports, if anyone. He's been allied at some point to every deity in the pantheon but every single one of them has also been betrayed, double-crossed, moled, reverse moled, abandoned, and/or tricked into advancing their enemies' schemes; sometimes all at once, and often multiple times in the span of five minutes. They put up with Xellos nonetheless because a) he's impossible to get rid of anyway, and b) his services, while they last, are ''just that valuable''.

* Yue often spends time in Yomiko's Library, it has plenty of books that interest her and aren't connected to her Orbis Sensualium Pictus. She often brings food to Yomiko, who otherwise tends to forget to eat.
* Yue one day walked into to the Council room without any warning of her arrival, everyone but Batman, Xellos, and Xanatos were quite shocked - well, they blinked, which was unusual - by some strange short girl's arrival. Apparently her book had a map to the place. This both concerned and intrigued EVERYONE. So she was allowed to stay. Currently each member of the council has an eye on her hoping she remains as uninterested in the council as she currently is. Most believe her book is a key to taking over the entire Pantheon.
** The rest of the Council is trying to figure out who put the map into her book, as that sort of event is not an accident, however the usual suspect list is quite a long one.
* She is currently the only member of the council to never have her face engulfed in shadow, in large part due to the reflective qualities of her tremendous forehead.

Now has a seat in the Council of Shadows, despite not wanting anything else to do with the Pantheons. [[spoiler:Hell, Temari and Batman practically strong-armed him into this mess.]]
* [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Constantly says]] he and Temari are JustFriends. Even with her agreement on this, not many gods think this is true(It doesn't help matters when their actions resemble [[GenerationXerox his sensei's]]).
* Never really wants to do any real work, and never puts any real stipulations on his followers. It's less troublesome that way.
* Shikamaru only shows up for about half the meetings, and that's only when Batman can drag him there. Usually he'll simply fall asleep listening to the talk, but when he's awake he'll savagely deconstruct almost any plan he hears; only Batman and Yue have ever managed to impress him (Okay, so Tzeentch came close once, but... things happened).
* Thanks to his power over shadow, he ''does'' know all the members in the council, but is too lazy to do anything about it. He's passed the info on to Batman and called it a day.
* Once dozed off, then woke up to find everyone looking noticeably uncomfortable and bits of metal and flesh scattered around the place. He didn't ask what was going on, partly because it'd be troublesome to know and partly because [[{Squick}} it was freakin' disgusting]].

* Opposed by: Every robot deity around the Pantheon (hell, even [[Pantheon/{{Villains}} Ultron]] ''hates him so much'' to his chargin).
* Opposes: Every single Fire-user and Sniper in the Pantheon.
* Fears: [[Pantheon/{{Villains}} Raul Menendez]], [[Pantheon/OthernessAbominations The Slender Man]], [[Pantheon/LoveOther Dokuro]]
* Why is the Spy here? Simple, because he is entirely distrusted by his Team and the entire Pantheon as a whole. Due to that, he considers this place, "a worthy hideout".
* The Council of Shadows have feared the day he has entered the Council, while he may be good to give out information with, its who he works for that they fear. And since he works for no one (well, except Team RED/BLU and Saxton), he may as well be a potential downfall to the council.
** As a result, the G-man is forced to watch over Spy's actions.
* Many gods especially Kane, have attempted to seize the Spy and use it for their agendas. Results always ends up with a backstab.

* Rivals: Other [[TheChessmaster chessmasters]] - so everyone in the Council, though primarily [[Pantheon/{{Trickery}} Petyr Baelish]] since he is god of the archetype.

* {{Unwitting Pawn}}s: Nearly ''EVERY'' being he interacts with.
* A master manipulator and planner, Teridax has a talent for using everyone and anyone around him as [[UnwittingPawn Unwitting Pawns]] in his vastly complex strategies, something which he massively prefers over getting his own claws dirty.
** He is always careful to dispose of those pawns [[TheStarscream who might rise up against him]] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness once they have played their role in achieving victory for him]]. There is no point, after all, in risking his newfound supremacy.
* While he is most definitely pleased to have returned to the Pantheon for the sake of his influence and power, Teridax is looking forward to further time here for another reason: there are more mentally impressive beings to outwit. [[WorthyOpponent In essence, it will be a bigger challenge for him and so his victory will be all the sweeter.]]
--> '''Teridax:''' “Your shadow plays are impressive, tyrant – but never forget who is the true master of shadows.”
* He recently discovered the game known as '[[Pantheon/MiscellaneousItems Diplomacy]]' and, having heard of the somewhat legendary match held between members of the [[Pantheon/{{Betrayal}} House of Betrayal]], now wants to set up a game amongst the numerous [[TheChessmaster Chessmasters]] in the Council. Whether this is to gain an insight into their thinking or actually [[ItAmusedMe for personal enjoyment]] is unknown.

'''[[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Bill Cipher]], The [[SinisterSurveillance All Seeing Triangle of Evil]]'''
* Lesser God [[spoiler: (Overdeity during Weirdmageddon)]]
* Symbol: A picture of him inside a wheel with symbols of characters from his home universe.
* Theme: [[http://youtu.be/_tmdv6jBNho Bill Cipher's theme]]
* Alignment: Chaotic Evil (AboveGoodAndEvil according to himself). It was speculated that he was just a demon that wanted to cause trouble, but it was later agreed upon that his intentions, whatever they are, are not neutral.

* For whatever reason, as soon as he entered the pantheon, he gave a shout out to his friend Caesar the first.
* He’s managed to possess his own creator Creator/AlexHirsch three times. ''Three''. Most struggle to that once, if at all.
* Due to his peepholes having been in many times and places, and in many different dimensions, he knows quite a lot of information.
--> '''Bill Cipher: OH, I KNOW LOTS OF THINGS. (low demonic voice) [[VoiceOftheLegion LOTS OF THINGS]].'''
* He leaves behind many messages that have to be decoded by one of the three Beale ciphers. The Machine, Batman, Sherlock, and a few other detectives always notice them and decipher them, trying to keep an eye on the demon or at least find out what he’s planning. They have speculated that he’s taunting them, since he knows the gods will go out of their way to find them.

* Doflamingo wants to spread war and chaos around the world by supplying nations with all sorts of weapons just for the sake of his New Age, where only the strongest survive. There may be other hidden motives behind his actions, but no one exactly knows for sure.
* There are rumors that he started making deals with some of the Grand Alliances for Devil Fruits, using his position as a measly Costume God to avoid suspicion.
** Apparently, he has managed to set up a factory of artificial Devil Fruits somewhere in the Pantheon. Its location is currently unknown.
