Pantheon: Commerce
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 richer if Jay Gatsby, who's on The Fallen, shares his fortune with them.

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

The House has two note-worthy guests that are to be killed on sight: Prince Charmles and both Mr and Mrs. Shun Ayasai. The former who promised the Gods to pay them if they got an Argornian Heart (which he just bought later on), the latter for being so consumed by Greed that they would sell their child to the Yakuza.



The Three Managers of Commerce

Seto Kaiba, CEO of Young Money (Kaiba Boy, The Prince of Games, The Chess Prince)
  • Theme Music: Duel Madness Instrumental.
  • 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, Cold, Destiny, Family, Pride, Retribution, Wealth.
  • Followers: The Kingpin, Montana Max, That Yellow Bastard, Mimi, Kaneo Takarada
  • Rivals: Yugi Muto (a friendly one), Robin Hood.
  • Enemies: Noah Kaiba (his step-brother), Dovahkiin.
  • High Priest: Karin Kanzuki.
  • 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.
  • Noa 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.
  • Keeps his little brother the Morality Pet around out of habit, though having to rescue him from the inevitable kidnappers is a chore. He's considering paying someone else to do it.
  • 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 his "adoptive" father. He met up with Uncle Howee who made a deal with him: he brings up the Ayasaki parents, and in exchange he simply asked 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 to 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.
  • 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".
  • 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.

C. Montgomery Burns, God of Old Money (Mr. Burns)

Scrooge McDuck, CEO of Finance and Champion of Those who Swim Through Gold


Ambiguous Ranks

Chester A. Bum, God of the Homeless (Chester Alfred Bum)
  • Theme Song: "Minuetto"
  • "I was a Lesser God once! It tasted like butter."

  • Domains: Poverty, Alcohol, Drugs, Spare Change

  • Followers: Lester B. Bum, Spencer D. Bum, Pester, and the Cinema Bum
  • Opposed by: C. Montgomery Burns, Patrick Bateman
  • "OH MY GOD, THIS IS THE GREATEST PANTHEON I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!"
  • 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.
  • "HOORAY!"

BnL, Celestial Mega Corporation (Buy n Large)
