Allies: Naoki Kashimanote Sometimes, the boy's... ambivalent about Lucifer, Asura, The Fiendsnote They are not beholden to him, but sometimes will act as his allies if it's in their interest., Flynnnote Much like his rival Naoki, Flynn's allegiance to Lucifer varies depending on the timeline.Homura Akemi
He's highly secretive of exactly who he is, how he came into being, his relations with YHVH and humanity, but it was he who sparked the creation of the concept of Chaos itself. He is, however, very vocal on what he believes: a world with absolute freedom where all sentient beings are free to do as they please. He's chaotic and ruthless, but make no mistake: he, for good or bad, is with humanity all the way. Yes, he believes in a wild, savage world where power and freedom are the apex of life. But considering the alternative...
Most of the good and neutral aligned gods still think he's a bastard, though, and that his philosophy of absolute chaos is just as bad as YHVH's own vision of absolute order. Lucifer himself agrees. However, he points out that against the sheer power of his enemy, one either matches him, or dies.
Whatever you do, don't mistake him with Satan. You'll just piss both off. Better not ask about the fact he was once Helel, YHVH's most beloved archangel, either.
Freely accepts his most often seen avatar owes much of its appearance to one of his favorite musicians, David Bowie.
Has a cordial relationship with the Chaos Gods, though he is a bit exasperated they're stuck in the worst of their respective emotions instead of becoming entities of true Chaos and fully encompassing the entire spectrum of the emotions they are supposed to embody.
Has a similar relationship with Discord. Each respects the others' dedication to breaking up the sovereignty of the local Top God in favor of absolute Chaos, but Discord finds Lucifer's interest in humanity's potential boring while Lucifer finds Discord woefully under-motivated. Since Discord forged a bond with Fluttershy, however, Lucifer is cautiously optimistic that Discord may just learn what he's talking about yet. It's at least a first step.
On the other hand, he does not get along with Melkorat all since Melkor believes that Chaos should be all about causing infinite destruction and suffering for the sheer sake of it and sees humanity as nothing more than a mere plaything. Lucifer just sadly shakes his head and muses on "wasted potential".
In his attempts to subvert any timeline where the future is determined by YHVH, he has experimented and manipulated others to see what potential futures there are. After many battles against him, he has come to the conclusion that Raidou Kuzunoha The XIV is the "spark" who can ensure that YHVH never has his way.
A very firm believer in the power of Humanity. However, he is also of the opinion that power and freedom are rewards to be seized/earned and not inalienable rights that can be taken for granted. This has caused some friction with Asura and is one of the major points against Lucifer.
Occasional ally of the Fiends. They are not obligated to obey his commands, but are more than willing to work with him if they feel their duty goes hand in hand with Lucifer's plans.
Important: he's Chaos, not Evil, at least in this incarnation. That portfolio belongs to Nyarlathotep. That being said, don't think he's entirely benevolent, either.
Seems to be on a bit of a Gender Benderstreak asof late. He's also been noted to have put a bit more effort into his most recent alias's name and personality.
Sick to death of people asking him if he plays the fiddle. For the record, he doesn't, and can't for the life of him think of why people keep asking him such a frankly inane question.
Was noticed observing Homura Akemi from afar, much to the worry of many in the Pantheon: when it comes to finding those with the potential to become powerful warriors of Chaos, Lucifer has proven to be an excellent judge of character. The Pantheon's fears were realized when Homura was spotted spending time with a blonde magical girl calling herself Louisa Ferre. The extent of Lucifer's involvement was shown in full when Homura betrayed Madoka at Lucifer's urging, kicking off an event known as the "Great Upheaval" Using a magatama she got from the Chaos Lord, Homura was able to gain the power she needed to make her strong enough to steal Madoka's own, overthrowing the Law of Cycles with the goal of taking Madoka off the front lines and out of danger. Judging by his previous actions, it is speculated that Lucifer is attempting to lure Homura further into the ways of Chaos, and turn her into yet another general in his war against YHVH.
Upon learning that he was behind the "Great Upheaval", most of the good-aligned gods declared that he has officially crossed the Moral Event Horizon in their eyes and are going to see that he is brought to account for it. The forces of The GUAG are currently gearing up for a showdown with him, especially the Magical Girl Sisterhood. He manipulated and twisted Homura's pure feelings of love for Madoka and in their eyes, that is absolutely unforgivable. The only issue is that even inconveniencing him is a ratherdifficult task, and by doing so, they risk the direct, undivided attention of the Great Will. And Lucifer just won't stop smiling...
When approached for comment, Lucifer responded with a chilling proclamation: "Is it not reasonable that Hope be tested and shattered if found wanting? Would you rather her powers have failed to protect her apostles at a critical moment? Her weakness nearly destroyed the Pantheon: I hope they remember that as they search for a leader truly capable of leading the Sisterhood."
Recently he also seems to have taken an interest in another girl, the yet to be deified Zero. This interest may relate to the many rumors and mysteries that are still surrounding her. After the "Great Upheaval" many deities are generally cautious or outright trying to keep Lucifer away from her.
Has finally encountered someone capable of astounding even him, in Shu Shirakawa, who managed to temporally annihilate both his and the still absent YHVH's temples with his Neo Granzon upon his arrival in the Pantheon. Lucifer seems genuinely confused as to why a man of such utter unpredictability is choosing to oppose rather than side with him. Shu for his part, claims that he finds any deity who manipulates others for their cause, be they Lawful or Chaotic to be a great personal offense to him and promises to send him, the Great Will, Nyarlathotep, Melkor, the 4 Chaos Gods and anyone else he deems distasteful to the inescapable oblivion of going beyond the event horizon of a black hole, someday. This did not have the desired reaction; instead, Shu only received raucuous applause from Lucifer - his goal is to free Humankind from the yoke of all Gods, not rule it! Should Shu manage to enact such a feat without harming thehuman spirit, Lucifer has agreed to go quietly into his can. Now the matter remains of proving this is possible...
While he's not necessarily a Social Darwinist, he isThe Unfettered and has been known to support (and act on) extremely Chaotic Evil acts and deities for the sake of his goals. There's a reason so many are wary of him and just how far he's willing to go.
Only rarely heeds the calls of Other Gods, occasionally attempts are made to seal or defeat him, but he always comes back. When he appears, destruction is imminent.
The Joker, God of Madness, Clowns, Crazy Laughter, Sick Jokes, Convoluted Executions, Destruction, and Chaos Undivided (Mistah J, Jack Napier, the Clown Prince of Crime, the Ace of Knaves, the Card With No Number, The Clown At Midnight, The Man Who Laughs, Agent of Chaos)
Symbol: A Joker Card. Joker must have a clown face and smile.
Heath Ledger's (posthumous) portrayal of the Joker catapulted him into the realm where only the most godlike of beings dwell where he ousted Abaddon the Despoiler and took his title. His only purpose now is to tear down the established order the other deities try to maintain.
Altaïr is responsible for the death of any fictional character who has ever died. Doctor Black Jack is responsible for the miraculous survival of everyone who has ever miraculously survived. Similarly, the Lord of Nightmares is the 'Deus' in 'Deus ex machina'. Whenever contrived coincidences and powerful forces outside the central characters' control resolve the situation, she is behind it. She is the Random Number God.
Domains: Craft (also a musician/singer), Theatre, honorary member of Shape
Followers: Most comic actors of renown. Sellers became an honorary member of Shape out of admiration for his inborn transformative ability and empathy for his private struggles. Lon Chaneys Sr. and Jr. may have been previous incarnations; Phil Hartman was almost certainly a rebirth.
His breath, and later his flesh, gave heightened life to each mask he assumed; as mortal biographer Alexander Walker wrote, "it wasn't concealment: it was transformation." Sellers was supportive of other comic gods, even without actual collaboration, helping to alter comedy in cosmic ways. Non-believers claim a cold void existed beneath his masks, but believers attest that void was just another mask for the truth. As his last work of high art, he cleansed his soul to create a purer identity for himself to be for a while, and upon mortal death ascended to another plane. Clouseau and Chance are each their own selves in the Pantheon, but they would perish if Peter were destroyed.
Followers: Corrupted minions, creatures forged from the tears of restless dead and clad in armor carved from the suffering of mothers.
Nemesis the Warlock, God of Using LesserSpecies AsPawns (The One Who Waits At The Edge Of Your Dreams, The Lord Of The Flies, The Holder Of The Sword Sinister, The Shape Of The Things To Come, The Death Bringer, He Who Is These Things And Many More, Khaos)
Symbol: His head with words "CREDO!" written over it.
Upon discovering that Torquemada had ascended, Nemesis appealed to the Main House, advocating that his crimes against humanity are so great he deserved the godhood. Despite few gods appealing that humans in his world deserved that, he managed to win and enter the house of Philosophy.
His real reason to join the Pantheon was to continue fighting Torquemada, the only human who gives him a challenge
Only few managed to earn his respect, the others he disregards as pawns he can use however it pleases him.
Nemesis claims to serve mysterious deity known as Khaos. Nobody knows about such deity, but many are suspecting it to be one of greater chaotic gods, most popular candidates involve Haruhi, Lucifer and Tzeentch. It doesn't help that Nemesis sometimes claims to be Khaos himself.
Ascended after everything he has went through was shown to the other members of the Pantheon, where almost everyone nearly Shat themselves at his raw power.
Has a major father instinct, and really wants his daughter Mithra to ascend to the pantheon to be able to be with her. Is also pissed off at abusive parents, and has at one point almost destroyed the House of Family with the aid of Devil Jin, intent on destroying Relius Clover after witnessing the latter attempting to "experiment" on his son Carl.
Is often compared to Akuma. The two had a fight so massive that it took 500 years to conclude. Who won the fight is still up in the air.
Recently took Sweeney Todd's place as the God of Vengeance and Rage. To this day, no one dares to speak about it, as it was not pretty. Even most of the other violent deities in the house hid in terror after it happened.
Despite similarities between the two, Asura despises Kratos with a passion for his carelessness towards humanity in how he kills them with no remorse even if they are innocent villagers. It brings to mind of other Demi-Gods that he had fought before ascending to this pantheon.
Since Asura has had less than ideal encounters with gods in his life, he rarely visits the pantheon, or even his own temple. Although he does go to the Combat Pantheon every now and again to keep his skill sharp, and he has another temple there he uses to rest up.
On multiple occasions Asura has been seen with another fighter, Yasha, when visiting the Combat Pantheon. Although he hasn't ascended (at least not yet) and he looks more calm then the raging Asura, the gods tend to give him space, since he seems to be the only one on par with Asura. This thought has given Melkor much to worry about.
Asura gives his blessing to any who have been betrayed and seek revenge. But this blessing comes with a warning, he tells those who follow him that they should always be careful managing their rage, lest it consume them. This doesn't mean, however, that he accepts followers, due to his stance against gods.
He keeps a watchful eye on Guts, who almost lost himself to his own rage and vendetta against Griffith, for this very reason. This is also why he utterly dislikes Sasuke Uchiha, because he thinks he's not worth carrying the torch of 'revenge' since his mind is too weak to handle it. "A whelp who doesn't know his place does not deserve to fight for rage and revenge!"
It is common knowledge in the pantheons that Asura, in the rare instance that he visits, should be given a very wide berth, since an angry Asura is very bad news.
Making Asura mad has been voted "The most idiotic thing any can ever do" by the House of Mentalism, Asura has shown no objection, since he knew that means having more time to himself and his daughter. Even Hazama refuses to troll him, after a mere attempt caused Asura to use Hazama as target practice for his Rapid Fire Fisticuffs for three whole days. Hazama was forced to apologize to prevent a bigger beatdown, and the two have agreed to never speak of it again.
There is also an incident regarding Lu Bu mocking him for his theme. The end result: Asura delivering the biggest No-Holds-Barred Beatdown the Pantheon has ever seen. Thus the universal agreement that pissing off Asura is a bad idea.
One of the few beings to take Mister Rogers head on. They became good friends afterwards.
Several Evil deities, thinking they can defeat him while he's armless, have sent entire armies' worth of mooks. They taunt him, saying they'll take Mithra away from him again. Armed with only a shard of his master's sword, he eventually got so pissed off that this happened resulting in a giant arm that wiped out hundreds of millions of minions like rice paper. Even armless, it shows Asura shouldn't be fucked with.
Has learned to suppress his Berserker/Wrath form by meditating with Cosmos. That being said, he has a MUCH easier time in accessing his Mantra form, terrifying almost everybody in the Pantheon.
Upon learning of the ascension of Gohma Vritra, Asura has decided to form a task force in order to end it once and for all. Aside from Yasha (who helped him slay the beast), Travis Touchdown, Ryu Hayabusa, Kratos (albeit reluctantly), Goku and Augus (just to be able to fight Asura after all is done) have joined him.
His absolutely gigantic Destructor form has piqued the interest of the Mecha piloting gods to try to take on said form. He has yet to respond to the challenges, but notes it as being interesting.
His reputation as the most Badass member of the Pantheon was cemented with his battle and victory against The Golden Spider (aka Chakravatin, the Creator).
Asura, despite his overwhelming power, has no real political power in the pantheon, like Flandre Scarlet. Unlike Flandre however, this is mostly out of choice. We use the word mostly because whenever he is asked for a solution to any given problem, he always answers: "Punch it." Now granted this solution worked for most of his problems but the pantheons' problems are a little more complicated.
It was noted by the pantheon that when he and Evil Ryu did a Shun Goku Satsu against each other, The Japanese kanji for "hatred" popped up during the fight, which translates out to "Ikari". Some of have wondered what would happen if Asura when angry and an angry Shinji Ikari fought.....
Discord used to hold a title in the house of Villains as the Disproportionately Evil Villains in Light-Hearted Shows, but his massive power level associated to a tendency to wreak chaos led to his replacement and yet another petrification by means of the Elements of Harmony. Discord's position was taken by Zero, whom Discord himself admits is much better suited for the role.
Shortly after his second imprisonment, Princess Celestia convinced the Court of the Gods to release Discord on strict probation, claiming that Fluttershy could possibly reform his ways. Sure enough, Fluttershy was able to successfully forge an odd friendship with Discord, and is currently acting his Morality Chain. The other gods are still exercise extreme caution when dealing with him, as without Fluttershy Discord would likely go back to his old ways, and many are not convinced that his reformation is not simply another trick.
A certain story has suggested Discord may have been farworse then previously thought. Thus far neither the princesses nor the bearers of the Elements of Harmony have commented on this.
Rumor has it that he has personally toyed with Jean-Luc Picard on multiple occasions in the past. Picard has so far declined to comment.
Shares a highly antagonistic relationship with Chaos, the God of Discord due the similarities in their names and titles. Chaos thinks Discord is an immature brat, and Discord thinks Chaos is too boring and serious.
Domains: Destruction, Evil, Rage, Strength, Tyranny, War
Seeks to absorb Sauron in order to transform into something powerful enough to take on O-Haruhi-sama and destroy reality. To aid in this endeavor, he also has his eyes on Light Yagami's tactical prowess, yet to Buu's dismay, Light has already anticipated Buu's attempt on his body and prepared accordingly.
Upon developing omnicidal ambitions, Davros became Majin Buu's High Priest.
It should be noted that there are no true followers of the God of Omnicidal Mania. They're all plotting the destruction of everything else, so backstabbing will inevitably occur. The exception is when omnicidal maniacs decide to pair up in order to annihilate everything.
The only reason the Anti-Monitor isn't also the God of Omnicidal Mania is because he couldn't care less for the trope. As he put it: "I do not care what you classify my actions as. It will not change your fate."
The anime increase his omnicidal tendencies to a whole new level. After destroying Earth he destroys dozens of planets in seconds and nearly blew up Heaven itself. Had he succeeded the very balance of the universe itself would have been thrown off the scale and those who were already dead in Heaven and would have been erased from existence.
This monster is virtually invincible force of destruction, and, because of his absolutely wild and ruthless nature, he can't controlled, even by his creator, Bibidi himself.
An example of this is when, shortly after his creation, Kid Buu blew up Planet Alpha and its inhabitants, and almost killed Bibidi in the process, causing Bibidi to tell Kid Buu off, and only meekly telling him he is his "father" when Kid Buu intimidated him by glaring at him.
