Pantheon / Commerce


Out of all the Houses in the Pantheon, the House of Commerce is the one that would fit best in a modern Earth city. It would still get a few odd looks, though. From the outside, it looks something like a boxy castle with several towers, all metal with glass windows that reflect the light. Each tower houses its own CEO and their staff. The lowest floor of the main building is permanently flooded with four feet of water, the better for a tiny pirate ship to navigate. Other floors have their walls splashed with brightly-colored advertisements for pretty much everything - the only square inches not given over to an ad are in the CEO towers.

The place is infested with weird little robots that can be destroyed for cash. It's also populated with Gray Mann's robots who fulfill the same function, but aren't quite as easy to destroy. Primus is not amused, and his children have not-so-secretly infiltrated the pantheon to make sure it doesn't get out of hand.

There's been a mini contest to get Commander Shepard to say "I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite House in the Pantheon." in each House. So far, there hasn't been any success.

They would have even more riches if Jay Gatsby, who is in the Sadness sub-house in the House of Emotion, shared his fortune with them.

They have also kept a leery eye on Petyr Baelish, despite his experience as Seven Kingdoms' Master of Coin.

Currently, there are no Trolls allowed, due to the fear that they will cause the Stock Market to crash, and the fact that they may inflate prices up the market. Bernkastel is currently trying to find a way to remove this, much to the entire House of Commerce's chagrin.

The Three Managers of Commerce

    Seto Kaiba 
Seto Kaiba, CEO of Young Money (Kaiba Boy, The Prince of Games, The Chess Prince)
  • Theme Music: Duel Madness Instrumental, Forbidden Memories OST - Seto Kaiba Duel.
  • Demigod (Lesser God if he has Obelisk the Tormentor on his side)
  • Symbol: The KaibaCorp Logo.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Anti Heroes, Badass Longcoats, Screwing of Rules, and Possession of Mountains of Money, Virtual Ghosts, Leet Haxor Skillz, Card Games as Serious Business, Disbelievers, Ensemble Darkhorses, Determinators.
  • Domains: Avarice, Coldness, Destiny, Family, Pride, Retribution, Wealth.
  • Followers: The Kingpin, Montana Max, That Yellow Bastard, Mimi, Kaneo Takarada.
  • Allies: Kaito Kumon/Kamen Rider Baron, Kaito "Kite" Tenjo.
  • Rivals: Yugi Muto (a friendly one), Katsuya Jonouchi, Robin Hood, Karin Kanzuki
  • Enemies: Noah Kaiba (his step-brother), Dovahkiin, Spyro, Eliza and Neil Reagan, Redyue.
  • Opposes: Exodia, Twisted Fate.
  • Kaiba chafes at the restrictions of the Pantheon and has in the past attempted to buy the positions of other Gods to expand His portfolio. He also has a fierce but ultimately friendly rivalry with Yugi Muto, God of Card Duelists.
  • Noah Kaiba of the House of Technology often uploads himself into Seto Kaiba's mainframe, being jealous of his position. For his part, Seto constantly designs and redesigns firewalls and other security systems to keep the brat out. His tower is adorned with variations on the Blue-Eyes White Dragon, and there are hologram stations in every cubicle.
  • He reacted to the news of his ascension with an angry "That's ridiculous! People don't become Gods!" He changed his mind in a hurry when Karin Kanzuki bought a mansion next door to his palace that was almost twice as big as his own. They both have connections.
  • His Morality Pet is his younger brother, Mokuba Kaiba. The only other person who can get him to lighten him up a bit. Mokuba serces as his brother's Herald in the Pantheon and helps his brother run the day-to-day activities of Kaiba Corp.
  • He has grown quite an affection for Paarthurnax as well as the large stone where he learns people about the Thu'um. Where else is he going to find a giant rock along with a giant dragon? Sadly, the many visits of Dovahkiin bothers him greatly.
  • Despite his cold attitude, he does have a soft spot in his heart: orphans. This is due to his backstory and he plans to open an amusement park for orphans and homeless children can roam about for free. This touched the hearts of many gods, some shedding a Single Tear at the story.
    • There is also one thing that he really despises: Abusive Parents which stem from his childhood with the man who adopted him and Mokuba, Gozaburo. He met up with Uncle Howee who made a deal with him: he brings up the Ayasaki parents, and in exchange he simply asked that for all of the House of Commerce to get their well-earned revenge on the two of them, all Howee asked was for the Gods to come to his special show that night. Kaiba agreed, and thus rallied the House of Commerce to attack the two bastards. Uncle Howee returned the favor by having the Ayasaki parents (transformed into marionettes) perform on his show. Uncle Howee walked away that night a millionaire. Seto himself has some odd feelings with the man. On the one hand, Howee reminds him of Pegasus, but on the other, he is easier to get along with and since the thing with Ayasaki, admitted to having enjoyed seeing the man at work.
  • Would like it for other gods to STOP making comparisons to James of Team Rocket and Brock. He's getting sick and tired of that. And for Kirby and King Dedede, no he is not some masked freak who goes by the name "Meta Knight"...and his anger toward Meta Knight grew when he tried to challenge the former to a duel. Meta Knight agreed to tossing a sword to Kaiba's face.
  • Sometimes plays chess with Lelouch and Light Yagami. Unfortunately, despite his skills, he's nowhere near their level of gambits and strategy. He doesn't take these losses seriously (in contrast with his duels with Yugi Muto) and for Lelouch and Light's part, they've decided not to Geass/Death Note him as he's a Worthy Opponent in the game.
  • When told of Spyro's surprising power for his size and age, Kaiba laughed asked if he was really expected to believe that a purple pipsqueak could stand up to the Blue Eyes White Dragon. Spyro has said he's eager to prove it to Kaiba when he gets the chance.
  • Didn't want to do anything with either "Project: Alternate Gentaro" and the Friendship Asylum, even though his step-brother Noah is trying to prevent it from spreading. Then he learned how Alternate!Gentaro had brainwashed Yugi Muto and made him snatch the Egyptian God Cards. Kaiba was beyond pissed. He's now going into the asylum, not to destroy it...but because NO ONE is allowed to go after Yugi except for him.
  • Himura Kenshin is the only person he'd ever avoid, as he's unaffected with his rules-screwing and bribery would just net him a hard crash with his Sakabato while being scolded to ask his money to save him from that crash.
  • Is amused that one of his many "followers" has ascended. Though he tried to hide it by saying "Well, it was about time one of them did".
  • Hates it whenever Twisted Fate borrows some of his cards to get thrown away, slashing other people and blowing things up, apparently the rarer the card, the bigger the damage. Kaiba has no problems in reacquiring them because he's stinkin' rich, but it gets annoying if he has to repeat that ad nauseum.
  • And another thing? He'd REALLY not like to be reminded of his actions during the events of The Friendship Asylum. Being brainwashed by your own rival who used you as a puppet that triggered the Pantheon's destruction via a Zombie Apocalypse is not something he'd like to hear. He also hates Dean Ambrose for that comment on Kaiba "not being that important" since it was that very comment that caused said brainwashing and the domino effect that caused the Zombie Apocalypse in the first place! To this day, Kaiba has not forgiven Ambrose for the comment.
    • At around the same time as the pantheon was recovering from the asylum, he has shown to be having tea with Princess Peach and her parasol friend, Perry. While he will never admit it, he is shown to be close to Perry because of how the parasol reminds him of his brother, Mokuba. He's now devoted to figure out how to transform Perry back into a human.

    Mr. Burns 
C. Montgomery Burns, God of Old Money (Mr. Burns)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Blinky, the Three-Eyed Fish.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Billionaires, Anti Villains, Bad Bosses, Douchebags, Ignoring The Rules, Corrupt Corporate Executives, Cartoonish Villainy.
  • Domains: Evil, Hell.
  • Allies: Lex Luthor, Looten Plunder
  • Followers: Rupert Murdoch, according to some reports (or maybe it's the other way around?)
  • Enemies: Being evil as he is, Burns has too many enemies to even list. The House of Nature are a special case, as well as any other business-related deity in the pantheon.
  • Employee: Homer Simpson.
  • Is currently hoarding money underneath the golden escalator to the Pantheon he constructed for himself.
  • Frequently visits Satan down in Hell to play poker, to whom he owes his long life.
  • Remember that time when he tried to block out the sun?
  • Once attempted to make a deal with Scrooge Mcduck into investing in his businesses with the secret objective of embezzling the duck's wealth, not only to be seen through by Scrooge and refusing the deal but also scaring away the hounds sent after him with just one glance.
  • Never seen on a Friday night for some reason. Of course, some gods have reported seeing an "alien" that wants to bring "peace and love" in the forest nearby. The "alien" and Mr. Burns are one and the same.
  • Burns has sworn on his life to destroy the House of Nature and build a pollution faculty on its remains. In retaliation, the deities in that house have banned him for life, especially after learning of his oil business that cost an underfunded school millions, and how he used a recycling plant to kill sea life and turn them into slurry for dynamiters.

    Scrooge McDuck 
Scrooge McDuck, CEO of Finance and Champion of Those who Swim Through Gold (Uncle Scrooge, The Wealthiest Waterfowl to Ever Live)

  • Chester can often be found sitting just outside the House of Commerce, living in a box and loudly demanding change of all passersby. Mr. Burns has grown tired of Chester's presence and would love nothing more than to evict him. Captain America and the rest of the House of Justice are also frequently at odds with Chester for his frequent possession of controlled substances, but Chester is often able to evade them.
  • He and the Nostalgia Critic are long time friends. However, after an ill-fated search for the Necronomicon and a legal confrontation over the Critic's Transformers reviews, their relationship seems to be getting strained.
  • Recently, Chester and the Critic have begun to repair their relationship, with the Critic taking Chester in as a sort of secretary and intern as well as giving him a paycheck.
  • "HOORAY!"
