Overdeities

     Eliphas (Yugioh ZEXAL) 
Eliphas, God of Knight Templars (The Radiant)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cd1478f6a843d0ca90e209194fbdc007.jpg
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: New Orders 13: Etherical Amon.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil -> Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Wanting to Rank Up the chosen of the Astral World Methods be damned (Until his defeat... somewhat), Deconstructed Purity, The will of the Astral World, Order not being Good but still Somewhat Morally better than Chaos, Shining Draw whenever he feels like it, Angelic Transformations, Heroic Sacrifices, Egyptian Motifs
  • Domains: Law, Order, Light, Decay (formerly), Space, Ranks, Purity, Extremism.
  • High Priests: The Royal Knights
  • Followers: Dartz, Paradox, The Yliaster, Aporia, Z-ONE, Lucemon, SEELE, Yomotsu Hirasaka, Danzo, Helios, Hotaru, SoulCalibur, The Forever Knights, Jet
  • Allies: Astral, Eiki Shiki, Saiou "Sartorius" Takuma, Madoka Kaname, Oriko Mikuni
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Yuma Tsukumo, Rei Shingetsu, Shark
  • Enemies: YHVH, Metatron, Lucifer, Homura Akemi and practically anyone from the Grand United Alliance of Chaos (except maybe Asura), Sora Shiun'in, Judai "Jaden" Yuki, Sho Marufuji, Yusei Fudo, Yubel, Bruno/Johnny, Aichi Sendou, Shobu Kirifuda, Koichi Kimura, the Trollkaiger, Light Yagami, The OTHER Eliphas
  • Opposes: Chaos (naturally and obviously).
  • Conflicting Opinions: The Incubators
  • He was ascended to replace Altena under the request of Yuma Tsukumo and Eiki Shiki to be able to reform the GUAL. They actually had a good case for this, with Eliphas being from the Astral World, under threat from the attacks of the Barians. The Astral World and the Barian World were once one realm, but its inhabitants separated the two in an attempt to remove chaos from their world so that they could achieve Rank-Up. However, removing chaos has only led the Astral World to stagnate and decay, with its citizens falling prey to diseases and despair. In the aim of saving Astral World he was willing to allow the Human World to be destroyed, and would have Mind Raped his own herald Astral in further service of that goal if Yuma hadn't kicked his butt.
  • After his ascension, he tried to ally himself with YHVH and the GUAL due to sharing the same wish for a perfect world. Many feared he would go back to do similar stuff in the Pantheon as he did in the Astral World but Eliphas has started to work with Eiki Shiki to turn back the GUAL into its former Pure Law glory instead of the corrupted variant they both found. Also, because hey, he does owe Yuma for saving the Astral World.
    • Though he blames Lucifer and believes he was somehow responsible for this because in his mind, corruption=chaos and chaos=evil. Eiki had to metaphorically (and some say that even literally) pull his ear and scold him for this ridiculous leap in logic.
  • He rarely exits neither the Astral World nor his temple unless it's a very extraordinary situation. He prefers sending his herald Astral if something needs to be done. Eiki Shiki thinks that this is for the better, as Eliphas' Lawful Evil/Neutral and Astral's Lawful Good balance each other and this is what the Yamaxanadu was what she was planning to do with YHVH.
    • This has made Astral and Metatron acquaintances but Astral does think that he and his Master could be a lot less extreme. He gets along a little bit better with Mastema, but the Angel of Hostility can be an asshole half of the time.
  • Has started to oppose the Grand United Alliance of Chaos. While he agrees that they are not as abominable as the Barian World influenced by Don Thousand, he still thinks that a pure world can only be attained by eliminating chaos. Lucifer replied to him that his wish of evolution is a Chaotic one in nature, and as nasty as Don Thousand was, Eliphas was/is deluding himself if he believed no one would complain at his tyranny. Or for that manner, that change could be achieved without the intervention of chaos.
    • Though he doesn't seem like opposing Asura. Possibly because Yuma asked not to, or simply because he is smart enough to not even bother.
  • He also respects a little the Hope Bringers in the Pantheon, especially Madoka Kaname for ascending and attempting to work with the Incubators (as much as that backfired) and Kouta Kazuraba for more-or-less and his devotion to ideals. (Then again, being beaten by an untransformed Hope Bringer would make anyone respect them...)
    • However, Eliphas is deathly afraid of Flynn and avoids him like the plague after hearing what he did to Ancient of Days.
  • Absolutely hates the Trollkaigers, as not only it was one like them that temporarily corrupted his herald, they have started to annoy him due to that defeat he had and since the one who defeated him is considered a moron, they say he's a moron by proxy. He has a No Trolls Allowed! poster outside his temple ever since and is planning to make the order on the House of Commerce the standard for the rest of the Pantheon. It's not hard for most of the deities to agree on this one.
  • Does not know what to make of the Incubators. He thinks he would have employed them back in the bad days of his world so that they could have that decay and despair that was unnecessary for the Astral World, but now that his world was rewritten, he has no need for that. He does think that the Pantheon and Homura have been a bit too harsh on them as they were doing what they were doing for a good cause.
  • Does not like Light Yagami. Eliphas thinks he could have been such a prospective chosen one for rank up and the cause of purity, but he has been too consumed by his ego to be that. Shame, as he said.
  • Has been trying to snap Sartorius out of his brainwashing as the first step towards a perfect GUAL. It would be better if he was conscious while he preaches about the Light, as he believes it to be.
    • He earned the ire of one Judai Yuki by doing this because he wanted to help his friend to be outside the influence of the Great Will. The feeling is mutual since he feels that the humanoid duelist's ability to have lucky draws that aren't a Shining Draw must be somehow related to the Chaos Barian Draws he despises so much.
    • Yusei Fudo also hates him for being similar to Paradox, Yliaster/Aporia and Z-ONE. He simply shrugged this time.
  • May YHVH have mercy on thy soul, because Eliphas will not have any if thou even suggest he could ever be... Chaotic! - Eliphas 13:13
    • . ..Not that it helps since most of the Chaos Marines like to annoy him by quoting lines from the Chaos Lord Eliphas the Inheritor in front of him the few times he is around the Pantheon. To which he always responds by zapping those Chaotic fouls.
      • Then they started to delegate this to Astral. Eliphas almost smote his herald before Yuma stopped him. He has ever since banned him from going anywhere near them anymore. Which technically speaking, he already banned him to... He simply was more lenient with him about that.
  • While he hates Lucifer for being Chaos Incarnate, there's someone else he hates even more: Homura Akemi. Hates, hates, hates, hates, hates her. Hates her guts. Hates how "damned" (aka selfish and driven by desire) she is. Hates how she cheated her way into "rank up" by stealing the powers of a worthy ascended one.

    Sage Harpuia 
Sage Harpuia, God of Noble Enforcers (Model H, Wise General Harpuia)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Harpuia_7977.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His helmet facing left
  • Theme Song: Flash Back
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Lawful Neutral for a short time)
  • Portfolio: Noble Enforcers, very sympathetic Anti Villains, aerial combat mixed with electricity, Tragic Heroes blinded by Pride, twin weapons
  • Domain: Good, Law, War, Protection, Wind, Lightning
  • Heralds: Fairy Leviathan
  • Superior: Mega Man X
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Rivals: Rainbow Dash, Scanty and Kneesocks
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: HK-47, Bender Rodriguez
  • Followers: General Leo, Kronk
  • Is extremely uncomfortable around Katara, Cygnus Hyoga, Kuai Liang/Sub-Zero, and Mr. Freeze (despite not being so different) for obvious reasons.
  • After his conversion, the leader of the Four Guardians has been trying to convince Magneto that peaceful coexistance is possible.
  • Adell is seeking his aid against Overlord Zenon, seeing that Harpuia's nigh immunity to lightning and super sonic flight speed would (at least in theory anyway) give her trouble.
  • Has a rivalry with Rainbow Dash, which probably comes from them being so similar.
  • Possesses a deep-rooted hatred for Prometheus and Pandora for being Mavericks, to which they could honestly care less about. However, he is forbidden from directly attacking them due to their membership in the GUAG Token Evil Teammates. On the other hand, he's always at the ready in the event they slip up to be the first to exterminate them.
  • X represents hope for the human race, of which Madoka reminds him of. Which is why he is participating in "The Pantheonic Rebellion" and has designated Metatron as a maverick to be terminated. He has brought the other 3 Guardians to assist in defending Madoka.
  • Harpuia had an encounter with Scanty and Kneesocks after they heard he had a connection with the devil, and were surprised that he was a good guy. They later sympathized with him over how "chaotic" Weil really was, and they became rivals of sorts. Harpuia hopes that they can become good while still enforcing the RRRRRRURUS, while the two demons think that he should return to his oppressive ways.
  • Grey originally attacked him when they first encountered each other, due to the fact that he thought he was looking at the Model H Mega Man, Aeolus. After clearing up that mishap though, the two of them became allies, though Harpuia was shocked and angered about learning what his counterpart was doing down in the mortal realms.
  • Doesn't have the best relationship with Elpizo, and vice-versa, both over the latter's Operation Righteous Strike and destroying X's original body to release the Dark Elf.
  • When he heard about a certain Leviathan coming into the Pantheon, Harpuia... did not bum rush to greet that being. Instead, he run a scan and research to make sure it's the Fairy Leviathan that he knew of. When it turns out that it's a Tidehunter, Harpuia then ceases all attempts to greet him.
  • Shortly after the politically-labeled Maverick Epsilon was reconstructed in the Pantheon, Harpuia went to meet with him to see what he was about. As Harpuia's attitude and design reminded Epsilon of his own loyal Cadres, Epeilon solicited the Sage's help in his quest to maximize the potential of Reploids. He gave Epsilon two conditions: no initiation of violent force against innocents of any kind, and no recruiting true Mavericks. Epsilon agreed.
  • One of their first acts was to recruit the Green Biker Dude to their cause as an example of creative Reploid engineering. Harpuia's loyalty to X, who GBD fought and died alongside in his first official mission, helped seal the deal with the former Maverick Hunter.
  • He also told Epsilon about several important things regarding his future world and Neo Arcadia, specifically tipping him off about Dr. Weil's evil, and informing him about the energy crisis as well as Ciel's role in Zero's reawakening. He was able to take Epsilon to meet Ciel upon her ascension to the Pantheon, resulting in her agreeing to work with them, in part to research Force Metal as a potential solution to the crisis.
  • Realized that their group would have to be a true resistance for all robot deities who don't wish for dominion over humans rather than a mere research and advocacy force for Reploids as soon as the Machine Council faction revealed itself and launched the Grant United Alliance of Machines. While Sigma and his fellow Councillor Ultron mucked around with a merging-of-worlds plot and X and Zero joined a legion of heroes trying to stop them, Harpuia, along with Epsilon, Ciel, and GBD all gathered and set the framework to transition their organization. They followed up on Ultron-Sigma's defeat by announcing the creation of Liberion Arcadia, complete with a futuristic military base connected to the members' temples via teleport terminals, and invited the likes of Phantom and Fefnir, Proto Man, Repliforce, Grimlock, Labrys and Aigis, and even Bass to join. They're currently awaiting replies.

     Takatora Kureshima/Kamen Rider Zangetsu (Shin) 
Takatora Kureshima, God of Token Good Teammates (Kamen Rider Zangetsu, New Generation Rider Zangetsu Shin, The White Armored Rider)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cast05_4892.jpg
Kamen Rider Zangetsu 
Kamen Rider Zangetsu Shin 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Zangetsu symbol, the Yggdrasill Corporation Logo, and his two Melon Lockseeds.
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral at first, revealed to be Lawful Good all along
  • Portfolio: Token Good Teammates, Showing One's True Personalities, Big Brother Instinct, Badasses in Cool Suits, Corporate Samurais, Every Scar Has a Story, Those Who Revealed to be Truly Good, Relying on Evil People, Being the Last New Generation Rider on Earth.
  • Domains: Law, Authority, Good.
  • Superior: Gen Urobuchi.
  • Allies: All Ascended Toku Heroes (especially Mitsuzane Kureshima (his brother - former enemy), Kouta Kazuraba and Shiro Kanzaki), Kiritsugu Emiya, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Aila Jyrkiäinen, Zhang Xingcai, Setsuna Higashi, Elizabeth Mably, Reinforce Eins, Nana, Princess Peach (long story), Shino Asada, Akane Tsunemori, Shinya Kogami.
  • Enemies: Those who want to mess with him, SHOCKER, YHVH, Lucifer, Sou Fueki, Ryoma Sengoku, Lock Dealer Sid, Shogo Makishima, BROKEN Matt Hardy.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Pretty much every god who was affected with "Project: Alternate Gentaro" (all one-sided on their part, not his), Yoko Minato (still remembers that one day she betrayed him).
  • Responsible for revealing the Awful Truth to Kouta about Yuya's final fate, said fate involves turning into an Inves and then killed off by accident.
  • Attempted to tell his brother Mitsuzane to reveal the truth about the Helheim Forest, not knowing that Micchy's on the dark side. That is... until The Shield knocked some sense into him.
    • His Selective Obliviousness is almost on par with Terra's seeing as he didn't even realize how his inner circle is gunning to kill him, nor did he realize how his little brother has caused "Project: Alternate Gentaro". Everyone under Teeth-Clenched Teamwork has decided to give him a lesson on "Trust 101" due to him just choosing to ignore the tragedy that has befallen the Pantheon.
  • Has a disdain for both YHVH and Lucifer... ironically, he's of the same Lawful spectrum as the former.
  • Looked in absolute horror when he finally learned what his brother caused to Gentaro, or rather "Alternate Gentaro". Part of him was mortified in how Alternate Gentaro went about gutting Micchy, the other half ashamed that he never realized how dark and sinister his brother could truly be. Has allied with the Shield to take him down...but not before getting a huge earful from many gods who hated Mitsuzane's guts ranging from Matt Hardy (being already irked on Ryugen being purple grape based but then the backstabbing on Kota and Jeff becoming Willow made it more personal), Elena (for Mitsuzane's words to make Gentaro—a really good friend of hers—to be sent into despair), Dudley (for causing his good friend Elena to become unladylike and for not noticing such tragedy isn't like a gentleman to do) and The Shield (they are disgusted by Mitsuzane's tactics in general). Let's just say that Takatora is being kept on a leash until Alternate Gentaro is captured.
    • And then Alternate!Gentaro came for Takatora, who 'thanked' the older Kureshima brother by sending a brainwashed Eric Draven to place a powerful Mind Rape that invoked all of the suffering the original Gentaro felt in his descent into madness. The incident caused many of the gods who were angry at him to feel sorry, and he was sent into The Friendship Asylum to heal.
      • Has successfully escaped the asylum due to the help of Voltaire and Artix von Krieger, but he is unable to fight as he still believes that he has caused most of this to happen. A good slap to the face by Ratchet seemed to have helped, but it's not known for sure. However, Takatora was later crushed to death by the Iron Giant during its rampage; he, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Crash McLarson, the Iron Giant, and Sora are the only gods known to have died during "Project: Alternate Gentaro".
      • Of course, Takatora was later revived with a Life spell by Princess Peach. Takatora expected her to scold him, too... but Peach understood what he was going through and looked after him until Takatora was operated on by Black Jack. Afterwards, several other gods, including Riku, began to forgive Takatora.
      • After the above events, he attempted to deal with his brother himself as Zangetsu vs. Zangetsu Shin, but was ultimately knocked out into the ocean, but this time, he only fell into a coma with some brain damage. Apparently, if he didn't hesitate from all their good memories together, he would have won. Once it was all over, Kouta then healed said brain damage so he could help Micchy, who was now an empty shell by then, paving the way for his brother's redemption.
  • He's the man-crush of Oren Pierre Alfonzo, whom he saves his life in the Helheim Forest incident after fighting with several Inves. Oren pretty much thanked him for that.
  • After the events of the Friendship Asylum, Takatora had to watch Matt Hardy become "Broken" and force Jeff Hardy to become "The Nefarious Brother Nero". Takatora immediately put BROKEN Matt Hardy on his shit list, stating how the older brother has become exactly what Takatora was accused of during the asylum incident. During the events known as "Tarot Crusaders", he and Mitsuzane teamed against the broken Hardys... only to fail when he was dragged into Matt Hardy's temple to relive his experiences in the Friendship Asylum.
    • It turns out that he survived the DELETION Matt tried to put on him and aided The Brian Kendrick into pretending to work "with" (not for as The Brian Kendrick likes to tell others) into waiting to strike once the information was needed to strike. Mitsuzane wasn't happy to hear that his older brother had to keep up a charade as a broken, maniacal scarecrow turned human though, and things got worse when Takatora got brainwashed by the dark influence that had manifested from Limbo.

    Taylor Hebert 
Taylor Hebert, Goddess Avatar of Those Trapped in Villainy and Multitasking (Skitter, Weaver, Khepri)
  • Rank: Intermediate Goddess, Greater Goddess as Khepri
  • Symbol: A spider with a crown. The name of this symbol is a secret except to the highest levels of her church. It's the Queen Administrator, a representation of her power source
  • Alignment: Wants desperately to be Chaotic Good, circumstances and her pragmatism usually cause her to fluctuate between that alignment and Lawful Evil. Chaotic Neutral as Khepri, as her passenger doesn't realize there is such a thing as "other lifeforms that aren't threats if I don't control them".
  • Portfolio: Terrible fortunes and necessity forcing amoral actions, Sucessfully juggling dozens of things at once, Trying to act merciful and heroic despite nature of power more easily used as a weapon, Insect swarms, Being consistently more competent than people assume due to cleverness with powers, Utter practicality, Sheer refusal to give up, Horrible bug-related deaths, Chronic depression due to horrible peers.
  • Domains: Animal (insect), Cunning, Intellect, Self-Sacrifice.
  • Followers: The Undersiders, much of Earth Bet, a whole gaggle of Benevolent Boss Anti Villains
  • Allies: Most of the Anti Villains in the House of Villains (who honestly believe that she was missorted and belongs with them given her...unique appreciation for disabling people), Magneto, Eren Yaeger, Mr. Freeze, Guts, Beerus (who understands what it means to be the person who oversees the nasty-but-necessary), Kirigutsu Emiya (initially was an enemy, but Contessa stepped in and showed him the history of Earth Bet as well as Taylor's own. He's since done a complete 180 and now regards her as something of an apprentice).
  • Rivals: Most of the House of Heroes, who recognize both her virtues and less-than-admirable tactics. Cosmos is trying to get her to hang up her constant war footing, but, unfortunately, she's been burned by supposed Big Good females in the past.
  • Enemies: She absolutely despises the Grand United Alliance of Law and YHVH, as they remind her of everything she despises about authority figures (technically this would put her in Lucifer's camp, but she's ambivalent about his anarchy). She's also not a fan of the Joker, Monokuma, or the White either, and the feeling is mutual due to an... incident; See below.
  • Very Complicated Relationship With: Amy Dallon, due to their shared role in creating Khepri.
  • Ascended on behalf of representatives of the House of Ambiguity when they realized she beat a planet-destroying Eldritch Abomination through psychological warfare. Was initially believed to be dead, hence why her ascension took so long as they kept looking in the afterlife. Upon being informed of her title, she is reported to have had no reaction, apart from "Okay. I'm used to it." Nobody's quite sure if she's happy she's able to be important again or upset that she's been forced back into a role she hates.
  • Was once made a target of the Joker, Monokuma's mastermind, and the White for driving into nihilistic rage towards existence, mistaking her bitter acceptance of her role and pragmatism for suppressed homicidal rage. While they did manage to reawaken Khepri by pretending to kill her father, they also discovered the hard way that Taylor doesn't blame other people for the misery in her life, and were entirely the focus of her vengeful fury and Mind Control powers. It took the White months to reconstitute, Junko was blinded and unable to enjoy it as Taylor ensured she would be in too much pain to really experience despair, and Joker got a face full of his own gas, though he managed to be brought back by Harley before brain death. Initially, it appeared they won anyway as Taylor's passenger began to eat her brain again, but as a deity Taylor's mind has enough existence away from her meat brain that Danny calling to her was able to be mentally registered and she forced it back. To add insult to injury, as far as anyone can tell the Queen Administrator still doesn't affect Taylor's mind any more than it normally does - quite humiliating for all the conspirators.
  • Amy Dallon's recent ascension to the Pantheon have made matters very awkward between the two. Taylor would like to be friends, but Amy's still a bit nervous around her as a result of the whole deal of transforming Taylor into Khepri and later being brainwashed by her into helping to fight Scion. However, necessity has required the two girls to team up to take on villainous threats that spring up in the Pantheon from time to time.
  • It is believed the words "Meh, I can take her", or some other version in reference to her, even thought, makes that person fated to be utterly defeated by her.
  • Also has a spot in the House of Combat.

     Vayne Carudas Solidor 
Vayne Carudas Solidor, God of Evil Virtues (The Emperor of the Archadian Empire, The Dynast King, Vayne Novus, The Undying)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Vayne_373.png
  • Theme Song: Theme of The Empire, Battle for Freedom
  • Intermediate God (Greater God as The Undying)
  • Symbol: His Sky Fortress "The Bahamut"
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Affably Evil, Anti-Villain, Authority Equals Asskicking, Bare-Fisted Monk, The Chessmaster, The Conqueror, Cultured Badass, His Sephira swords, Kung-Fu Wizard, Nay-Theist, Utopia Justifies the Means
  • Domains: Virtues, Conquering, Speeches, Fighting, Freedom, Kingship
  • Allies: Gaius Van Baelsar, Funny Valentine, Corypheus, Nikolai Bulygin, The Illusive Man, Golbez, Victor Von Doom, Mateus Palamecia, CLU, Solidus Snake, Cao Cao
  • Rivals: Shao Kahn, Alexander The Great, Garland
  • Enemies: Ashe Dalmasca, Gabranth, Balthier, Penelo, Squall Leonhart, Artorias, Lightning Farron, Hawke, Odin, YHVH, Sora, Gilgamesh, Arturia Pendragon, Ashe
  • Seeks to overthrow the Main House and give himself the Title of "Dynast King". At first it seemed to be a purely villainous goal and he has not denied it. But he has upheld his own virtues of Honor, Love and Determination to be able to do what he believes to be the right thing to do to free the Pantheon from "The Tyranny of The Gods".
  • Tried to win people over to his side with a speech similar to this one. So far it seems that his Enemies had to go out of their way to convince others that he was villainous.
  • He has shown a large distaste for YHVH, his angels, and anyone similar to him, because his goal is, in his words:
    "The Pantheon will know a new Dynast King, and Man will keep his own history! The tyranny of the Gods is ended! We shall be their puppets no more! The freedom for which we have longed is at hand!”
  • Though on the same token he does not wish to join any of the other alliances as to him "Good" is limiting, "Evil" just for the sake of it is worthless and "Chaos" is not what he is after.
  • He has allied with Valentine and Bulygin though he has tried to convince them to break away from The Great Will, time will tell what becomes of it.
  • Has shown hatred for those that opposed him in his Realm and has since plotted for their destruction.
    “Your lives are forfeit, and your insurgence along with them. This Pantheon will again know order. For good and all, I shall put your futile attempts at rebellion to an end.”
  • While he and Gilgamesh have similar goals in mind, he believes that the so-called King of Heroes has failed to serve his people well and sees him as a petulant child throwing his toys around when he has a tantrum.
  • Has allied with The Illusive Man and Solidus Snake as he agrees that only Humanity should be in charge of its own Freedom and Destiny.
  • His temple has been relocated at his Sky Fortress and with the help of his allies he can now become "The Undying" at Will there. It provides him with the power to destroy those that would dare to invade.
  • Despite his hatred for most Gods, he has treated those that honestly want to help humanity with Respect after his dealing with Venat. Though it will not stop his attempt to conquer their realms, he attempts to have them come to his side first rather than be flat out hostile.
  • Due to both sharing the same name and he not seeing her as able to do what is necessary he has shown dislike for Ashe.
    "Such a woman is not fit to bear the burden of Rule. Weep for Freljord if you defy my Reign, for She will be lost."
  • Shares similar sentiments for Arturia Pendragon. He often questions her ability to deal with Her Subjects, if she dealt with them as he would then her tragedies would not have befallen her. When questioned on this he gave one response.
    "What am I to do with those who would oppose me...but show them death?"

     Kolin 
Kolin, Goddess of Enigmatic Minions (Helen, Phantasm of Snow and Ice)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2017_08_31_013202.png
Kolin, disguised as Helen.
  • Leitmotif: Kolin's Theme
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbols: Her Ushanka hat and the Book Of Miraha, placed atop a pillar of ice
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Likes Butterflies, Badass Bookworm Who Cleans Up Nicely In a Nice Suit, An Ice Person, The Military Is Her Berserk Button, Church Militant, Manipulative Bitch, Mood-Swinger, Mysterious Woman, The Nameless, Russian Fashion, Sensual Slav, Undying Loyalty To Gill
  • Domains: The Illuminati, Prophecies, Cryokinesis, Systema Martial Arts, Russian Women
  • High Priestess: Lisa Hamilton/La Mariposa
  • Superiors: Gill (her lord and master), Urien (to a lesser extent)
  • Allies: Juri Han (sort of), Sub-Zero, Illyana Rasputin/Magik
  • Opposes: Those who oppose Gill and the Illuminati in general, and all military deities, with Balalaika of Hotel Moscow, Marcus Fenix, Captain America, and Sonya Blade topping the list.
  • Rivals: Cassie Cage, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, Queen Elsa, Natasha Romanov/Black Widow, Esdeath.
  • Enemies:
  • Complicated Relationship: with Charlie Nash
  • Odd Friendship: with Regime Superman
  • Gill wanted Kolin for the position of Enigmatic Minion, but Kolin faced stiff competition from Lisa Hamilton, A.K.A. La Mariposa. Kolin suggested that she and Lisa fight to decide who would take the title. Lisa agreed. Despite the latter giving it her all, it was Kolin's Systema fighting style and her ice powers that gave the Phantasm of Snow and Ice the victory, and cleared the way for her ascension.
  • Not only did she humbly thank Gill for the opportunity, she also offered Lisa the position of High Priestess, to show that there were no hard feelings, and due to their shared love of butterflies. Surprised by the gesture from Kolin, Lisa accepted.
  • Kolin is Russian in origin, but she doesn't like to talk about her past. What we do know is that she was once Soviet military, having lost her friends and family in an unknown war. Being the sole survivor, she wandered into a frozen wasteland, having lost the will to live. Then she met Gill.
    Gill: What is thy name, child?
    Kolin: I have none...
    Gill: Where is thy country?
    Kolin: It's gone.
    Gill: Then I shall forge one. The Country of God. It could be thy new home. Siring every nameless flower, bringing forth a thousand years of peace and harmony to all. If you desire it.
  • As a devoted follower to Gill, Kolin is known for carrying the Book of Miraha, the Illuminati's holy book. Some say that the Operation C.H.A.I.N.S. Incident is what squared Gill's decision to host the third World Warrior Tournament. Granted, Nash failed to stop Bison; Ryu defeated the dictator instead.
    When the sun sets on the Soliton Mountain, the black moon will break into seven pieces and fall on the people "Ultania". Nothing can prevent this... Death and destruction will violate the land. Misery and suffering will assault the people. Then, after 130 days of nothingness, a boy who controls the elements will come to save the people.
  • Her Ice Powers were a gift bestowed upon her by Gill himself. Of course, she and her boss are not the only ice-wielding deities in the Pantheon, which is why she seeks to enhance and strengthen her powers. She was offered to learn from two people: Captain Cold and Sub-Zero. Kolin doesn't think too highly of Captain Cold, so she is learning under Sub-Zero, on the condition that Kolin doesn't preach to him about the Miraha prophecy of the Illuminati. There's a rumor that she is making a play for the Dragon Medallion, but Kolin denies it.
  • There are two things that can set Kolin off: those who oppose Gill and anyone with a military background. Guile can back the latter claim, since she did attack him. Since the Pantheon is home to several military deities, Kolin has to fight the urge to freeze them all.
    • Surprisingly, she does sympathize with Big Boss, having heard the story of how he killed The Boss and gained his current title, not to mention his goals of freeing humanity from Zero's influence. It's pretty clear that Big Boss is one soldier Kolin truly respects.
  • Kano has an unhealthy obsession with her, much to Kolin's annoyance. Even Gill is annoyed with Kano's desire regarding his secretary.
    • Kolin is also not a big fan of Sonya Blade or her ex-husband. But she is intrigued by the Mediterranean warrior bloodline, which Johnny had passed down to his daughter, Cassandra. Gill sees Cassie as a candidate to join his utopia, but Kolin must first learn to look past Cassie's family and friends.
  • As she is a blue-eyed blonde, Leatherface approached Kolin as a potential girlfriend when they first encountered each other. One Diamond Dust later, and Leatherface was left frozen in place, and Kolin walked away, muttering choice curse words in Russian.
  • Aside from being fluent in Russian and English, Kolin is quite fluent in Japanese. Due to the voice she uses to speak that language, however, people tend to get her confused with various deities in the Pantheon, such as Katsuragi, Gamora, Mistral, Pharah, and Temari Nara.
  • Kolin does not like Leopold Goenitz at all. She sees him as, in her words, "a false prophet worshiping a false god." She doesn't think too highly of the deified Hakkeshu either, despite the fact that most of them hate Goenitz due to his genocidal tendencies.
  • Black Orchid and Jago aren't too big on Kolin or her boss, because the Illuminati reminds them both of Ultratech. This animosity is mutual, as Kolin sees the siblings as a threat to the Illuminati's dream of a utopian paradise on Earth.
  • Struck up a strange friendship with the former High Councilor, Kal-El. Turns out that Kolin and Regime Supes have a lot in common, mainly due to losing their loved ones and their home. While his Regime was dismantled due in part to Batman and his Insurgency, Kolin believes that Kal-El could benefit from Gill's guidance.

Tychus Findlay, God Who Was Trapped in Villainy (Convict 626, Scoundrel, Notorious Outlaw)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tychus.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Marine armor and chain gun
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Tattooed Crook, Criminal with A Job, Poisonous Friend, Boisterous Bruiser, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Wields Chain Gun, Forcedly Encased in his Armor, Secretly Worked for Mengsk, Pilot the Odin
  • Domains: Forced, Villainy
  • Allies: Jim Raynor, Heavy, Serious Sam
  • Enemies: Arcturus Mengsk, Amanda Waller
  • He was an old partner-in-crime with Jim Raynor, until he was eventually arrested. He was pleased to be released later, free to drink with his buddy again and help him make money off the artifacts. However, it was a ploy; when he was allowed to be free by Arcturus Mengsk, the condition was that he had to assassinate Sarah Kerrigan, or else Mengsk would shut down his major organs via his suit. Thus, Raynor had to shoot him after de-infesting her in Char, knowing about Zeratul's warning of the prophecy which requires her survival.
    • He ascended from the afterlife due to his forced villainy, both figuratively and literally. However, because his kill-switch is no longer active in the Pantheon, Tychus turned against Mengsk and rejoined his buddy.
  • He is sometimes seen drinking with the Heavy Weapons Guy due to their fascination with big guns.
  • He has an interesting relationship with Sarah Kerrigan; on the one hand, he was ordered by Mengsk to assassinate her in exchange for his freedom. On the other hand, Kerrigan wished that he went through with it; she believes she deserves no less. Admittedly, he had second thoughts about carrying the mission out and tried to persuade Jimmy out of a mission to Char, and even stated that he would rather have died by the hand of someone like Jim than to be killed by his controller.
  • Despite no longer working for Mengsk, he is still unable to remove his armor, as it is welded shut. So far, little progress have been made in freeing him from his suit. Fortunately, he has a bathroom system in his suit.
  • He once heard that Raynor partnered with someone named Serious Sam since he reminds him of Tychus himself. When Tychus met Sam, he found he couldn't agree more. With their love of guns, they will both help fight the Zerg infestation.
  • In one universe, Tychus died and was left behind on Char, where he was later resurrected and infested by the Zerg. Unlike Stukov, he was assimilated by the Swarm with memories of him being shot by Raynor. This memory was always lasting, and he ended up losing himself to the influence of the Hive Mind.
    Tychus: I sure hope she was worth it... Jimmy...
    • On the other hand, one universe showed him to have escaped from New Folsom, likely avoiding the deal with Mengsk.
  • Tychus is known to be a smoker; more specifically of cigars. However, when he is sent to fight in the Nexus, he can't have his cigar on the battlefield. Fortunately, he's good at smuggling the smokes, although it can go horribly wrong easily; for example, it might fall into his armor and he'll start freaking out and cursing a blue streak.
  • He loves big war machines, due to having to pilot the Odin, though in his opinion, some of the Mechas available to the Pantheon pale in comparison to the Odin, with its heavy cannons, missile launchers (which always launch missiles in a barrage), and a dedicated nuke cannon.
  • Though he is technically a criminal sent to fight in his armor, he admits to not like the idea of working with Amanda Waller. For example, her having a remote bomb on the Suicide Squad if they don't obey her is similar to Mengsk having had a trigger to shut down his major organs if he didn't kill Kerrigan.
  • While he's not the type to be very sentimental, he sympathizes with Sophitia Alexandra due to her being forced by Nightmare and Tira to do their bidding or else they would harm her daughter.
  • He was very annoyed when Lucio reminded him of all the times he broke Raynor's jukebox. "Look, it's just one damn jukebox, kid; if ya like it, buy another one. Should be plenty of 'em in the Pantheon. And that money ya got from DJ-ing shoulda do the job..."
  • "Hell, it's about time!"
