'''Love and Lust'''

The House of Love and Lust is, for the most part, fantastically decadent. Visitors are reminded that this is not a cathouse, and most of the gods residing in it will, at best, laugh if propositioned. It is a wonderful place to take a date, and a popular attraction for groups of friends. The House's purpose is to provide comfortable, relaxing surroundings, ideal for pleasure of all kinds, from intellectual to carnal. That doesn't mean there aren't uncomfortable parts, but a visitor can only get into those of his or her own accord. No unwanted violence is permitted here - even the worst of enemies are forced to do nothing but glare and walk away unless they're really there [[FoeYay for one another.]] To infringe upon this rule is to invoke the wrath of Bayonetta. Or, worse, that of Desire.

This House has its own highly-tended steamy garden replete with a number of secluded nooks. Under its domed roof, one can find the bubbling pools - [[TwoPersonPoolParty for obvious reasons]] - of such things as mud, wine, [[EroticEating chocolate]], Jell-O, and [[CoveredInGunge mysterious slime]]. The kitchens are always well stocked, the furnishings well appointed. The best sound systems in the Pantheon are here, although it's superior by a very slim margin (It's rumored that Akio Ohtori ''persuades'' [[Pantheon/{{Technology}} Tony Stark]] to hand over the blueprints for every new sound system as soon as they're conceived), and, obviously, many songs about [[SillyLoveSongs love]] and [[IntercourseWithYou sex]] are available to listen. Infamously, there is a door which opens into an [[PornStash explicit wing]] of the [[Pantheon/{{Knowledge}} House of Knowledge]]'s Library, and a strange little room in which [[RuleThirtyFour anything and everything a visitor finds exciting]] can be seen. Clothing is optional in designated areas, keeping in with the whole "Lust" thing.

A visitor's final and most emphatic warning is this: Don't go beyond the place where the columns become supple, that place where the very nonhuman make their homes. [[NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat Unless you're into that.]]

Be cautious when wondering this house, as Belle is a Princess of Heart; any attempts to kidnap her or use her to recreate the χ-blade will get you ripped into shreds by the Beast, and if you survive, you ''will'' be banned.

* Enemies: [[Pantheon/{{Personality}} Nyarlathotep]], [[Pantheon/VillainsOverdeitiesAndGreaterGods the other Hades]], [[Pantheon/{{Anger}} Hera]]
* When [[VideoGame/GodOfWarIII Kratos destroyed Mount Olympus]], Aphrodite was one of the survivors. She found herself amongst the Trope Pantheons, in order to serve as the DistaffCounterpart of [[Pantheon/{{Power}} Hercules']] [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman portfolio]], and when it was revealed that she has been seen in the [[VideoGame/{{Smite}} Battlefield of the Gods]] and [[YourCheatingHeart cheating with a lot of deities]] and in the same time, giving them great support, which surprises even Cosmos and many of the House of Love, who knew that cheating isn't always negative and can be beneficial?
* They were even more surprised when it was revealed that Aphrodite harbored a lot of regret on causing the Trojan War, and the reason she was seen in the Battlefield of the Gods was to try to find out if her beauty can be used to stop war, they thought she didn't give a shit about the Trojan War after winning that 'The Fairest' apple. And that [[spoiler:all her cheating escapades was because she's rather insecure and feeling worthless when her husband Hephaestus wasn't paying much attention to her despite her title.]] Of course old habits die hard and she tends to use the facade of ProudBeauty and BitchInSheepsClothing front of many, but many who knew this understood about her tortured soul.
** Upon further investigation, it has been confirmed that she was inflicted by an element of the [[VideoGame/GodOfWarSeries Pandora's Box]], Lust/Vanity, but her acts came more from her natural self being the Goddess of Beauty. It was only after an incident in the [[VideoGame/{{Smite}} Battlefield of the Gods]], when she formed a link with [[Pantheon/PersonalAppearance Guan Yu]], protected him from [[Pantheon/{{Trickery}} Loki]] and being healed by his 'infectuous leadership' that the element was destroyed, allowing people to discover her broken heart.
** This also lets her to re-discover her passion with Kratos after their night-stand during the fall of Olympus. But deep down she also felt a little insecure and scared, realizing the last time Kratos caved her whole Pantheon. Still he reminded her so much with Ares... [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame something that would make Kratos just facepalm.]]
* Hanging around with various Gods here eventually even got her [[EveryoneHasStandards slightly disgusted with how Zeus acted]] so Kratos kicked his arse. However, Aphrodite didn't dare raise such statement in front of Zeus. This is ''Zeus'' we're talking about after all.
** This was also why after Hephaestus rose as Vulcan into the Pantheon, Aphrodite has been lately paying him a visit and secretly shares her newfound disgust, as well as how it wouldn't be possible had it not been her participation in the Battlefield of the Gods. Surprisingly, Vulcan also understands that, and for a rare time, they were actually agreeing and treating each other with respect.
* It was said that she's looking for what is true inner beauty, despite her title. For this, she is fond with the Guardian of inner beauties, [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Reika Aoki]].
* When she entered the Pantheon, she received weird looks from [[Manga/SaintSeiya Andromeda Shun]]. This probably stems from the fact that from his knowledge, Gods aside of Athena in his realm can be such assholes, and that she [[NamesTheSame shared the same name]] as the evil Pisces Saint. In one look, Aphrodite can realize that her kiss can't charm [[CelibateHero him]], so she decided to share her tale, enough that Shun would leave her alone in normal terms.
* Many worshippers of other Goddesses would boast that [[TheWorfEffect their Goddesses' beauty are unmatched they're either on par or even more beautiful than Aphrodite]]. The Pantheon has made this a taboo, because this is usually hitting Aphrodite's insecurity and usually this would attract her wrath. Despite her portfolio, [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower her wrath is not to be underestimated]].
* Is friends with Panty and Stocking. She especially likes the former as the two [[LovableSexManiac sha]][[ThePornomancer re]] [[ReallyGetsAround persona]][[AllWomenAreLustful lities]].
* At one point, Aphrodite was planning on a beauty contest amongst the Pantheon Goddesses, but it was quickly deduced by the Investigation Team, especially Yu Narukami, that it's yet another way to mask her insecurity, and her acts reminded them of their mortal class teacher, Noriko Kashiwagi, and it's not doing good for her image. After being suggested by Narukami that she should be more confident of herself, Aphrodite was so grateful that she even offers to become his Persona at times.
* Has a motherly sense of affection for Wonder Woman, who inherited her blessings of beauty and love, and is extremely proud of her fighting in the name of love and peace.
* Whenever she gets near [[Pantheon/{{Personality}} Nyarlathotep]], she couldn't understand how it came to be so far, but... she hates him. She thinks he didn't deserve any 'love'. So far, seems like only Tatsuya Suou, Maya Amano and Eikichi Mishina has any idea why she thinks like that.
* Also hates [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising the other Hades]] who just wouldn't leave her insecurity alone like the original one, instead [[{{Troll}} mocking it]] at every opportunity possible. On the other hand, she had quite the interest of Pit not just for his opposition against this Hades, but him being a short-statured winged youth mainly wielding a bow reminded her of her son Cupid/Eros.

* Intermediate Goddess (Greater when using her [[{{LimitBreak}} Overload Skill]] "Volunteer Sauver")
* Symbol: A fluorescent pink feather
* Alignment: [[NeutralGood Neutral]] StupidGood
* Portfolio: [[ThePollyanna Pollyannas]], Explaining [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove The Meaning Of Love]], [[FriendToAllLivingThings Friends To All Living Things]], {{Fluffy Cloud Heaven}}s, [[Theatre/OedipusRex Subjects of Oedipus Complexes]], The Power of [[ThePowerOfLove Love]] and [[ThePowerOfFriendship Friendship]], MagikarpPower
* Domains: Celestial, Healing, Protection, Good
* Followers: [[Anime/YuGiOh Anzu Mazaki]], [[Manga/ShugoChara Eru]], [[WebComic/AxisPowersHetalia America]]
* Superior: [[Pantheon/HeroicArchetypes Seraph Lamington]]
* Subordinates: Artina
* Allies: Laharl (claimed), Etna, Sicily, Raspberyl, Heart Aino, Madoka Kaname, Kim Kaphwan, Yellow Heart, Asia Argento, Asagi Asagiri, Yoko Littner, Patricia Martin, Megumi Aino, [[Pantheon/{{Friendship}} Colette]] [[Pantheon/{{Prophecy}} Brunel]]
* Enemies: the Pantheon/GUAETrollkaiger (Terumi, Bernkastel, Izaya, Handsome Jack, and Basco), most members of the House of Hatred, [[spoiler: [[Pantheon/{{Law}} YH]][[Pantheon/{{Faith}} VH]]]].
* Frequent guest of Laharl, God of Noble Demons. Laharl insists that it's for purely for tactical alliance reasons and the fact that she acts exactly [[Theatre/OedipusRex like his mother]] is entirely coincidence.
* Upon concluding that Laharl's conversion to the side of good was a success (whether he admits it or not), Flonne has set her sights on nudging Kefka towards the path of righteousness. The rest of the pantheon is taking bets on how long before she snaps.
* Experienced a massive surge in power after her recent promotion/transformation.
* Her otaku nature means that she often {{Squee}}s over seeing HumongousMecha and {{Cool Starship}}s, means that when she's not here, she is visiting the House of Technology in hopes she can convince someone there into building her a better machine.
* NEVER [[BerserkButton comment to her about her small chest]], the last person that did so got blasted to the other end of the planet.
* Is a very vocal supporter of the Chick Magnet Quartet, which is probably a given since Criminy is one of the members and Asia is part of its BattleHarem. Rumor has it she's also the president of the Quartet's much-rumored fanclub...
* She's currently trying to teach Panty and Stocking the ways of a more proper angel. So far there's been ''very'' little progress, as Panty keeps on [[LovableSexManiac having sex with all the gods of the Pantheon]], and Stocking continues to [[BigEater eat more and more sweet food.]]
* The discovery of Flonne's MagicalGirl transformation caused her to become a target for "Trollkaiger". It involved a copy of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. The experience freaked her out to say the least. Unfortunately for Trollkaiger, Flonne found out soon after that Madoka herself existed, and upon meeting her, the loving, kind, selfless nature of the Goddess won Flonne's utmost admiration. Then she found out about Madoka's Sisterhood, and applied as soon as she could, thrilled at the prospect of working alongside such an amazing person. [[NiceJobFixingItVillain Oops.]]
** After the Great Upheaval, Flonne has been inducted into the ranks of the Sisterhood. After everything that had unfolded during that horrible time, her unending optimism is widely considered to be in DIRE need. It's working so far, at least on some level. [[spoiler: Upon the orders of Lamington, she and the Celestial Host have deployed to the GUAG Sisterhood to protect Madoka during "The Pantheonic Rebellion"]]. However, the Upheaval has given Flonne a question to ponder: "[[spoiler:How could love go so wrong?]]"
* She is occasionally found visiting Asagi in [[Pantheon/{{Purgatory}} Purgatory]], encouraging her to continue on her quest.

* Enemies: [[Pantheon/DemonicLegion Insarn]], [[Pantheon/MusicIntermediateGods I-No]].
* Opposed: [[Pantheon/BeastOther Tewi Inaba]]
* Followers: Lum Invader (''UruseiYatsura'').
* Belldandy answers the calls of lonely Earth boys looking for love, as long as they are pure of heart. Those who does get answered, consider yourself lucky, because she'd really be a perfect mate.
* Belldandy's name was meant to be [[Myth/NorseMythology Verdandi]], but the limitations of the Japanese language caused problems and the name stuck.
* In spite of being a Norse-based deity, Belldandy's mannerisms really mimics [[YamatoNadeshiko the ideal Japanese Housewife]]. She would be the perfect Goddess for that throne, but Belldandy insisted that she didn't look that part and [[HumbleHero someone that fits the look as well should be the one taking the job]] instead of [[SpotlightStealingSquad her hogging everything]]. Well, she did find the more suitable person.
* Will occasionally insist that [[Creator/KikukoInoue she's]] [[RunningGag 17 years old]]. [[note]][[PhraseCatcher Oi, oi...]][[/note]] In fact... she once said that to [[Pantheon/{{Music}} I-No]]. Unfortunately for Belldandy, not everyone who shared [[Creator/KikukoInoue the same thing]] seems to enjoy the gag.
* After finding out that her sister, Skuld, had been in Pantheon all this time, but for some weird reason, she was based on some kind of weird, unfinished fanfic, she pended that the Court of the Gods should change that. She was successful.
* Because she's so demure and kind-hearted, many mistook her as a doormat and decided to do crap on her. ''Big mistake.'' When Belldandy tapped into her power, [[BewareTheNiceOnes she can cause untold wreckage to her enemies until they behave.]]
** One of the [[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth Magic Knights, Fuu Hououji]] managed to witness this, and drawn with some links that she found between her, they eventually become friends, with Belldandy occasionally 'tutoring' Fuu about wind magic. Those links happen to be [[Creator/BridgetHoffman occasional voice]] and time of origins, TheNineties.
* Many Gods from the Norse origins wondered if her original namesake, Verdandi, would become eligible for [[VideoGame/{{Smite}} the Battleground of the Gods]]. They do know that Belldandy cannot take her current form for that.
** Belldandy didn't seem to interact much with these deities, but she forms a bit of a bond with the Valkyrie Queen Freya, whose mannerism seems to remind her with her sister Urd... except Freya is neutral with her love affairs.
** Also, while the Tyr in the Pantheon is not same as Belldandy's father, he still treats Belldandy like she was his child.
* Have opposed and complained about Tewi's acts of mischief despise being a goddess of luck. Tewi never listen, instead even fooled her to buy stuff.
