Magic and Spells
The House of Magic really isn't all that different from the House of Knowledge, as both Houses often find themselves having the same motivations. As a result, it is very common to see deities from outside Houses confusing the House of Magic for Knowledge and vice versa. Rumors persist that the two Houses are actually connected to each other via secret passage while others go even further to claim that both Houses are in fact housed in the same building. However, there is much debate among those who believe these theories on whether Magic or Knowledge is dominant, culminating in numerous magical duels in the halls.
Tzeentch, God of Change, Hope, Ambition, Manipulation, Scheming and Sorcery (Changer of Ways, the Architect of Fate, the Weaver of Destiny, the Grand Schemer, the Great Conspirator)
Enemies: The Status Quo, Rika Furude, Ryukishi 07, The Puella magi....ALL OF THEM, Kyubey, Sailor Moon, Lord Kroak; Yuji Sakai, The Crimson Denizens and Flame Hazes (post-season 3); The Emperor of Mankind plus all of his underlings.
He used to own a Crystal Staff that allowed him control over almost everything. When he broke it as a sign of surrender because of the threat of his brothers, he lost much of his former power...so claims his followers. He is still a god of change, and what is magic if not mastery over change?
He vehemently denies any and all allegations of ties with Cirno, although Marisa loves to tease him about it.
Not very happy about getting trolled by Ryukishi 07 in response to messing with Rika. Bernkastel chuckles about the incident behind Tzeentch's back.
Has been found to have been the driving force behind TheIncubators system for starving off Entropy. The system has since been changed, while earning the ire of Madoka Kaname and Homura Akemi. The Incubators, while not having the capability to feel anger/annoyance, have since been keeping an eye out for more trickery, especially since witches continue to pop up every now and then.
Post-Upheaval, a shocking truth was revealed: Tzeench had absolutely nothing to do with the Witch System. That was a lie spread by none other than Madoka in order to keep Kyubey from reinstating it. When questioned why he allowed the falsehood to stand, Tzeench said nothing, but smirked self-knowingly.
Aside from being the driving force behind the creation of witches from Magical Girls and The Incubators system for starving off Entropy, he has also been found responsible for the millenia-long fighting between the Flame Hazes and Crimson Denizens. The system has since changed, while earning the ire of YujiSakai and Shana. The former, during his atonement, has since been keeping an eye out for Flame Haze-Crimson Denizen fights, especially since they're not completely at peace with each other.
Is banned from most sections of the Library for incurring a fine so large that not even Seto Kaiba could pay it off. It does not stop her from occasionally attempting to sneak in, however.
Keeps her house from far awy from others due of her experiments in magic might cause harm to her surroundings. One time her Mini-Hakkero was possessed, causing her to gain temportal pyromanic mindset and setting her surroundings and any one crossing her path on fire. The incident has fortunaly been solved and she should be back to normal.
Madoka became a conceptnote (Due to being a cosmic force, Madoka's physical form is one of four that that is an avatars of herself in the abstract. One of herself as a human before her ascension, another is her as a magical girl, another her last appearance during ascension (pictured), and the last remains unseen but is said to be Kriemhild Gretchen. And note that outside of Kriemhild Gretchen, all forms are of the same personality.) to end the suffering of Magical Girls. As such, she ascended to the pantheon to administer to the system of Magical Girls from within in. Should anything befall them, Homura Akemi is her herald to act on such matters unless it is something serious.
The names Kriemhild Gretchen and Penitent Gretchen are aspects of herself as a concept. It is rumoured that Kriemhild is a harbinger ofthe endnote (Which can not/must not be allowed to materialize at any cost. The simple appearance of Kriemhild can set the Apocalypse in motion... to see it means you are about to die. The only person that has "seen" Kriemhild and lived is Homura.) and that Penitent is the bringer ofheaven. In either case, it is said that her power is so great at that point that she is said to rival Haruhi, Goddess of Tropes. Due to this, Madoka's name is spoken of in whispers by most others.
The Chaos Gods of The Warp are a little worried, as she actually succeeded in making her multi-verse less Grim Dark. Despair Demonsnote Known to some as the Wraiths aren't that far removed from Warp Daemons, if they're not the same thing.
Less so with Tzeentch. The fact that witches still exist after her wish for the erasure of all witches and her accession is testament to that.note His involvement in their transformation may also have something to do with it...
Similarly, she has earned the friendship and respect of Kenshiro's brother Toki, as she proves his belief that love and kindness can save the world, much to the incredulous disbelief of his Aloof Big Brother Raoh.
Sakura and Madoka are known to be friends, due to this Sakura doesn't wish to fight her; not to mention she finds the stories of her world(s) interesting and wants to have a daughter like Madoka.
Though initially intimidated by his reputation, Madoka became fast friends with Bills the God of Destruction, who governs destruction and rebirth in the Seventh Universe. Aside from being able to relate to each-other's common purpose of giving new life and hope by destroying decaying and decrepit concepts, Bills becomes quickly accustomed to the affectionate chin-scratches that Madoka readily gives him, like the overgrown cat that he really is.
Finding out that Tzeentch was the one who was the driving force behind the creation of witches from MagicalGirls and the warping of their wishes has left an...impression on her. note Having been mending most of the damage of the old system with her own, having this happen again will force her to seek the end/rebirth of the Pantheon. NO-ONE will be safe from the effects save for other Warpers of Reality and Homura.
Kyubey would just like to say that the Incubators had nothing to do with this, they had no idea that the system his race implemented was backed up by The Warp.
Apocryphal accounts point out that she is possibly the greatest batter of all time, as she only bat homeruns.
Should any Incubator knock on her door, her first response is to shoot them... no matter how many times they come back.
As of recently, she is rather uneasy around Fluttershy... because of some similarities with her voice to Kyubey. This unfortunately worked against her when Joker poisoned her with fear toxin-laced pizza, causing her to lash out at the pony and seriously wound her before hallucinating Madoka condemning her for doing so. Fortunately, Fluttershy made a full recovery and Homura reconciled with Madoka, regaining her position as her herald (which, come to think of it, she never lost to begin with).
Shoutan Himei is one of the few people that Homura will act completely kind to and hang out with. As they should, the both of them have been through a lot... it happens to be their bond as friends.
Rika Furude has been rather friendly with her, these to also share a bond. They know the pain that a "Groundhog Day" Loop can impact on the soul. Homura is also on good terms with her friend and superior, Oyashiro-sama.
Araya Souren has the rare and dubious honour of being the only god/goddess/divine being in the pantheon to violently enrage Homura on sight (after learning about the ApartmentComplex from Ryougi Shiki), something that is normally reserved for an Incubator. If not for his mastery in the Innate Bound Field, he would be shot on sight like an Incubator. And trust us, she'stried
Despite things being civil between them, Homura and Sakura Kinomoto tend to be at odds with each other. It stems for the animosity when Sakura formally was the Goddess of Magical Girls. This is said to displease Madoka, as she and Sakura have a friendly relationship... this leads to some strained cooperation between Homura and Sakura.
Despite both being Puella Magi, Homura and Sayaka have a history. Homura once tried to kill Sayaka when they where both mortal... they have been hostile to each other ever since. Since ascending, the hostilities have died down somewhat... enough to keep Madoka happy, but Homura still sees Sayaka as "Unfit to be a Mahou Shoujo". Sayaka thinks she is just jealous and knows about Homura's collection hobby.
This also strains any relations with Kyouko Sakura. Considering the relationship she has with Sayaka, Kyouko despises Homura as a result of her past action. Homura doesn't seem bothered by Kyouko, but will act if things cross a line.
Bernkastel appears to have taken an interest in her, although it's unknown exactly what she is up to. Mami Tomoe suspects that it might have to do with her other responsibilities as the Goddess ofRetroactive Preparation. It does, in part... the other half it comes from the Witch known as Homulily and her time abilities.
Is absolutely FURIOUS with Tzeentch after finding out what he's been doing all this time to her and Madoka.
Although she's a harmless witch, Homura stills see Gyubid as a threat.
Shiki Tohno can't help but notice that Homura looks a lot like his little sister, Akiha. Of course, he's more concerned that Homura will be a target in SHIKI's serial killings - not that SHIKI will be too much of a problem for her.
She respects the Master Chief, because of his ability to keep a promise. Recently, she has developed a sympathy towards him due to the death of Cortana - their final farewell struck a chord with Homura, since it reminded her of her own farewell with Madoka. She even considered helping the Chief in his quest to help Cortana ascend, but has her hands full with her duties against Tzeentch.
Doesn't like Flynn all that much, after he made a rather stupid offhand comment about being interested in fighting Kremhild Gretchen. Although he managed to convince her he wasn't serious, and didn't know exactly what that would entail besides, it's quite clear she hasn't forgiven him.
"Don't forget. Always somewhere, someone is fighting for you. As long as you remember her, you are not alone."
After a terse dinner conversation with Kasumi Raoh, the King of Fists, Homura is inspired by his courage and willingness to become a Raksha; the most monstrous of Devils, to consume all the lesser-evils in the world so that it may be pure and clean once more.... unfortunately, she acts on his example in October of 2013.....
Has been noted recently to be spending an...inordinate amount of time with a strange blonde Magical Girl calling herself LouisaFerre. Considering Madoka has an encyclopedic memory of every single Magical Girl to ever live, there was quite a bit of panic when her answer to who Louisa was was: "Who? I'm sorry, I've never heard of her."
The means Homura used to steal Madoka's powers during the Great Upheaval were revealed to have been supplied by Lucifer.
Has been placed under heavy protection for her own safety after the "Great Upheaval": as the driving entity behind the event, and her crimes against her friend Madoka, she has been declared Public Enemy Number One for the Magical Girl Sisterhood. Though her new power would be more than enough to stop any threats against her person, the Main House has declared her forbidden to use them against the Magical Girls for fear of unnecessary bloodshed. She is currently awaiting her trial.
Usagi happens to be one of the few goddesses to return to the Pantheon. For a long time, she had her chance to be normal... retired from the title of Goddess of Magical Girls (which was given to Sakura Kinomoto at the time), living with her boyfriend in peace. But what Tzeentch started with tying to re-establish with the old MG system, forced hands in its change. Madoka saw it necessary to request that Usagi return. Given Usagi's strong sense of justice, and hearing of the calamity that Tzeentch caused, she had to return.
Currently she is stated to be an Intermediate Goddess, but her power is known to fluctuate greatly. In the rare times when her Silver Crystal is working at full power, she may even be more powerful than Madoka....
She has a striking pair of Innocent Blue Eyes, so much so that it's said to be magical. They are not, but what they lack for in magic they make up for in seeing the truth. Anyone that seeks darkness can't help but be unnerved at her penetrating pitiful gaze.
Mami Tomoe looks up to Usagi greatly, and considers Sailor Moon her hero. Should the two be in the same room, Mami will always refer to her as sempai. Also, Mami penchant for calling out her attacks is something that she picked up from watching Usagi work.
She and Sayaka disagree over The Power of Love... Usagi believes fully that love has no limits, Sayaka would agree but is confused to why it limits her. Sayaka also resents Usagi because Usagi has something that Sayaka never could obtain.
The Warhammer Chaos Gods are actually scared of her. The fact that she managed to destroy the 4 personifications of Chaos of her universe and then defeated the very concept of it is a very worrying fact to them. Tzeentch even lost his usual smug Just as Planned attitude upon hearing news of her return.
She tends to 'spy' on Yuri Tsukikage on her 'spare/naughty' time. Usagi made up an excuse that she's thinking that Yuri could be a harbinger of the arrival of the whole Pretty Cure armada to the Pantheon, but the real reason was because she reminded her of a great friend of hers, who happens tosound the same, just far more stoic.
When asked her opinion on the matter of her avatar(s) in Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle and their romantic choices, her response was a confused hooee?. Upon looking into the matter, she simply repeated herself, extending the statement for several minutes.
Has recently been speaking with Madoka Kaname, her stories on the power of magical girls has been shocking. To Sakura, she didn't realize that the calling could cause such despair. As a result of that and the friendship that the two struck... she has stepped down as the Goddess of Magical Girls.
Dismayed to learn of the source of the witches, she has been helping with the rebuild project. She helps with others with therapy and cookies.
Finds Rin Tosaka's protests over the existence of Kaleido Ruby cute and adorable. She also happens to be Ruby's mentor.
Is working alongside Usagi to try to keep order in the Sisterhood after the events of the "Great Upheaval".
There are rumors that Umi has a long lost brother in the War House, named Kazuya. She has denied that rumor, but she looks up to him as a big brother figure.
In the mortal realm, Hikaru had an Evil Counterpart in form of Nova. In the Pantheon, that spot was taken by Celestia Ludenberg. Recently, Hikaru has been trying to get close with Celes, hoping that she will grow some empathy and values friendship for that. The Pantheon are guessing just when until Celes decided to turn Hikaru against Umi and Fuu for any purposes, though the betting pool say that the three's bonds are just too strong to manipulate like that.
Followers: Far fewer in this aspect (not many survived).
An alternate aspect of the Goddess of Friendship. Only seen when her friends are in danger (and heaven help you if her daughter is). She has no problem combining the two if she feels the best way to be your friend is to kick your ass. She comes to this conclusion more often than you'd think.
Reports indicate that magician Aozaki Aoko attempted to take this title, but upon reaching the front door decided that it would be "too much of a pain in the ass" and headed to a local steakhouse instead.
Although, reports of her sister Touko ascending have recently caused Aoko to reconsider taking the job, for the sole reason that it would allow her to piss her off. It's between that and just blowing up the House of Life and Death.
The fact that she was just upgraded to protagonist status after the release of her own story is increasing her consideration.
Her claim of this title has recently come under threat after some of the Main House saw Negi Springfield's epic tournament battle against Jack Rakan. Time will tell whether Nanoha retains her throne...
Does not accept followers. In his opinion, having an apprentice and Warden trainees is enough to worry about.
He began as a mortal who got into the House of Otherness from his pure awesomeness and guts, but ascended to share a spot with Nanoha after visiting the House of Technology, and crashing it. Several gods wondered if she'd mind sharing her seat, but given that Nanoha and Dresden both approve of the other's similar stance on threats against their friends and/or family (namely, using overwhelming force until the threat ceases to be one), she was willing to let it pass without challenge (and the architects of the Pantheon rejoiced).
Does double duty as god of Flipping off Cosmic Horrors.
Became quick friends with Lennie Briscoe. Other gods step lightly when the two are hanging out; no one wants to be the target of their combinedsnarking. He also admires Edward Elric's taste in coats.
Rumors have said that he would take over Terra Branford's position, given that committing genocide against the evil race that kidnapped his daughter is a hard act to beat, but he views himself as an unworthy father and has no desire for the spot.
Has been offered the power from third parties or had the opportunity to take the power to attain greater godhood on several occasions, but either through his personal moral code or disgust with the situation, has turned most of them down. Only recently became a Knight of Winter, though in his defense, he didn't intend on surviving past a few days on the job.
Has the eternal respect of Faust VIII after the incident with the Tyrannosaurus Rex zombie. He STILL thinks it was awesome. Then again, so does every other god, even those who hate necromancy (they acknowledge that it was necessary at the time).
Is no longer allowed in the House of Technology, due to the incident where he crashed it and gained Godhood.
Domains: Fire, destruction, loyalty, fire, dragons, more fire.
Allies: Lucy, Gildartz, Zuko, Yamamoto, Monkey D Luffy
High Priest: Wheeler
Is banned from the houses of Craft, Technology, and Travel, due to his tendency to focus on beating the bad guys and ignoring all collateral damage in the meantime. Several gods have been recently having to devote all their free time into fixing what he's broken.
Once managed to take down half a town trying to take out a criminal. This was not an isolated incident.
Was not the cause of Azula's famous Villainous Breakdown, but brought it to its peak by defeating her, during a time when her firebending was supposed to be magnified many times over. Azula now blames Katara for most of her problems. The rest, she blames Zuko and Mai for.
Does double duty as Goddess of Nurturing.
Also acts as high priestess of Percy Jackson, God of Hydrokenesis, in the House of Nature.
Learned the art of Earthbending from the Badgermoles, for whom it was a way of life. Learned it darned well, too, considering that she was entering the earthbending version of pro wrestling and curbstomping all opposition in her tweens.
His magic, "Crash", allows him to break anything he touches. Combined with his spaciness, this makes him very prone to ignoring doors, walls, and whatever else might be in his way.
Ascended upon his first appearance, where his hometown has a special protocol in place to ensure that he doesn't space out and take the short path to his destination, ignoring whatever buildings might be in his way.
Comes from an entire guild whose hat is collateral damage. He also hopes that he'll able to see his daughter, Cana Alberona, ascended one day.

Was once a wealthy and highly prominent neurosurgeon, albeit cold and unsympathetic to his patients. When a dreadful accident damaged the nerves of his hands he searched long and hard for a cure, eventually coming to the Ancient One. When he became aware of demons, interdimensional conquerors, and unspeakable things, he learned to think of people other than himself and took up the study of the mystic arts so that he could defend the world.
Over the course of forty years developed an unparalleled mastery of magic. Knew something of the Pantheon and the gods therein long before attaining godhood himself. He is rarely seen within the Pantheon.
Were given the rights to the throne ahead of Zan and Jayna of the Superfriends, because most found Zan's use of his water-shifting abilities quite lame. As well as keeping the flag ofMagical Girl Warrioralive after Usagi went on some sort of break. They also thanked one of their successors, Yuri, to become the harbinger of their arrival in the Pantheon.
They may be only able to be on full power when together. However, separating them and putting one (especially Honoka) in danger is an especially bad idea. Nagisa is known to tap a gigantic power in protective rage for that.
Nagisa is also the club leader of the Pantheon Academy's Lacrosse Team. In fact, in case Precure transformation is impossible for battle, she'll just grab a nearby lacrosse stick and start beating her enemies with it. Not a bad alternative.
While they were visiting the House of Heroes escorting Setsuna Higashi onto her new house, they were shocked when they heard what they recognized to be Dark King's voice and went on offensive. Turns out, it's not him, but someone withsimilar voice, Sanger Zonvolt. After realizing what kind of being Sanger is, Nagisa and Honoka quickly apologized and they became friends, age be damned.
She found Suigintou and nursed her back to her health after the latter was thoroughly discarded and abused by Tomoe Marguerite. Alice has since gained Suigintou's respect and at one point came to blows with Tomoe... with Alice on the winning side, of course.
Is currently hiding Carl Clover in her house per his request since he needs time to plan his counterattack against his evil father Relius. Alice accepts him, if only his mastery over BIGGER puppets (Nirvana) interests her.
She eventually used information from interacting with him to develop her "Goliath Doll".
Kind of annoyed with how Amane Nishiki pesters her with handing Carl over to him. Not only her "Goliath Doll" is still in development, Alice has kind of grown fond to the boy. There's usually a battle that broke out with Amane's... whatever skills and Alice's Danmakus, but none of them are able to gain upper hand.
At one point, Carl decided to left her house and ended up helping Relius on one his plans. Alice was first shocked about this, but was relieved to hear that Carl had no plans to actually help Relius and is currently watching him until he turns Ada back to normal. Carl and Alice still keep contact with each other, helping each other in need. Alice is also fine if Ada gets turned back to human as she can then harvest any parts what is left from Nirvana and use them on her Goliath Doll
Doesn't live inside the House itself, but the House contains a passage into her world, now reduced to it's primal form: a simple web, due to the absense of potential preys. The only one remaining... for now.
The Other Mother has been starving ever since the portal to her realm has been closed to mortals. She hopes to use her deification to open up a new portal to hunt down more children.
She has no ambition to take over the Pantheon, however. Only hunger for love, and souls.
She rarely leaves her world in person, however her dolls lurk all around the Pantheon, unseen, empty button eyes watching... watching something...
Under no circumstances are those dolls to be let anywhere near the chamber of Treasures, for grave fear of The Other Mother's knowledge or use of Li'l Cal.
Once went on a date with Orochimaru, which ended with her dumping him. "Dumping him" means she strangled him with his own snakes and left him in a trash can.
Is currently spotted hanging around with Ghetsis Harmonia, who offers her a seat in his House of Abusive Parents as co-Goddess. Medusa has actually been considering it, as he saw that Ghetsis has a lot more in common with her than Orochimaru, and she agreed that Precia Testarossa was a fool that let herself get some 'totally not-evil' portrayal.
Does not get along well with Rider. Feels that Rider is too nice and resents the shared name. She's even more pissed off that Rider changed her inscribed name and now Medusa is on the receiving end (and more well-deserved) of whipping on the head by Simon Belmont (or occasionally Trevor Belmont).
Recently she was mistaken for the mythological Medusa by Flynn, who had his demons bind her into immobility so Flynn could "fundraise" from her pockets. She doesn't understand what the hell happened, but she wants her cash back.
Allies: Is currently being taught in the ways of BFS wielding by Cloud. Is teamed up with Negi and Yue. The other gods didn't mind, as they are usually good-natured, although after Evangeline has taken over their training, some gods are keeping an eye on them, just in case.
Has recently been seen in the presence of Kamijyou Touma; there are whispered rumours that his Imagine Breaker is stronger than her Magic Cancel, though no one is certain exactly how a potential showdown would work. No one in the House of Magic wants to ask them about this either, in fear of them testing their limits on them. After all, Anti-Magic is a highly respected (and feared) power to the magically inclined.
These rumors may be put to a rest with Kamijou's ascension to God of Punching Mages.
Followers: Was once followed by Karen Eiffel, but she soon spurned his love of tragedy when she found a man she could not bear to kill with her powers.
Frequently opposed by Fakir, despite the boy's powers being granted by Drosselmeyer himself. When Drosselmeyer tells him he should follow him because he says so, Fakir tells him to Screw Destiny.
By orders of the Main House, someone of intermediate godhood or higher is to keep tabs on Drosselmeyer at all times. With Ahiru as part of the Pantheon, Drosselmeyer has proven his powers now function on others in the house. And, unfortunately, he still has his love of tragedy.
The more paranoid or maybe savvy members of the Pantheon have tried to steal one of Drosselmeyer's books at a given chance. This is due to the rumor that everything happening within the Pantheon, from certain gods ascending, to the battle between the GUAE and GUAG, are all because he is writing these events into reality.
Drosselmeyer is aware of all this, and can only laugh. True one or two chapters in this tale are in his handwriting, but he's come to believe he himself is another author's character, and therefore not truly in charge. Not that he minds being guided by fate however, so long as he's entertained.
Often confused with Negi Springfield, because they've scarcely been seen in the same place at the same time... until now.
Evangeline has encouraged Negi to try to defeat Harry and take over this position, but Negi doesn't really seem to care too much. Other deities have expressed interest in such a match up, if only to see Who Would Win. Harry, for one, claims that Negi would likely triumph, if only because Harry's close-combat skills are... lacking compared to Negi's melee/magic-hybridization expertise.
Dumbledore was originally considered for the position, but he turned it down to be the headmaster of the Academy. Harry sometimes serves as a student teacher there.
Is one of the main foes of the Disgraces, since a good deal of their powerful members have tried to take over, replace or otherwise oust him.
The last attempt resulted in a team up with Percy Jackson, in which they became Fire-Forged Friends. After all, who can not be friends after kicking Edward Cullen and Bella Swan's butts?
After that, the Protectors of the Plot Continuum offered him to join in their group. Harry accepts due to his experience on hunting every Sue in existence.
Allies: Chiyo, Midna, Adrian Tepes, Ramza Beoluve, most Good-aligned Bleach characters, Mithra
Marona was rewarded with godhood for her Earthly work as a spirit medium despite rarely ever getting paid for it. She's just happy to finally be part of a crowd who isn't afraid of her because of her abilities.
Has no intention on possessing Mithra, which is not a good idea anyway, as Asura can attest.
Allies: Asuna, Yue, and possibly Evangeline, Hayate Ayasaki
Followers: Erio Mondial if one were to believe the doujinshi.
There were supposed to be 31 cards in his personal deck, but Evangeline was a bit... vampy, and he was afraid she would take initiative and go too far. Another refusal is... complicated, involving time travel and a blood relative. And then theres something about stealing harems from his Arch-Enemy and now, even his Arch-Enemy. Currently a third refusal is being debated with one of his students who seems to be defending his Arch-Enemy.
Thanks to his command of magic and his way with the ladies (especially Rydia the summoner, and surprisingly enough, Shizuru), the Elder Gods allow Negi to sit at the Big Gods' table during holidays so that they can hear of his "exploits". He roundly asserts that he doesn't have any, despite the stack of love letters he gets every month.
Has never been seen in the same room as Harry Potter... until recently. They're good friends, really.
Was once, upon mastering the KhiliplAstrape technique, offered the position of Deity of Lightning, but he turned it down. That he is on very good terms with Nanoha & Fate and would not want her to lose any influence may have had something to do with his refusal. Though one wonders... can a position in the Pantheon be shared...?
It was recently revealed that in addition to being the son of the Strongest Still Mortal Mage Ever(according to some sources) he is also the Son of one of the oldest royal families ever, and his mother has been accused of destroying her entire country (though evidence points to her relative Asuna being the true culprit).
Granny Weatherwax lives in a small cottage in the edge of the Pantheon, rarely straying too far unless visiting Nanny Ogg or other witches. While she may look frail, her power and mastery of Headology make her a force to be reckoned with. Of note, her tiny kitten, You, is one of the few things capable of cowing Greebo.
Nanny, on the other hand, lives in a larger, more accesible house, where she still lords over her immense family, and, when he's around, Greebo.
Both are highly respected and feared as elders by most of the House. Every now and then, though, they will be challenged by some upstart newcomers. One Curb-Stomp Battle later, they both get helpers for most of the tasks they don't feel like doing that day.
They have been joined by Magrat Garlick (now queen of Lancre), Perdita X. Dream, and Tiffany Aching to complete the power of three needed to unlock their full potential, and hold each in high regard.
Bernkastel is a mysterious individual, her past is a relative unknown to most of the Pantheon. For some reason or another, the house to the goddess of miracles is that of a Shinto shrine in a wooded area much to Rika Furuede's annoyance.
Because she is a witch, most Puella Magi treat her with extreme caution. Homura Akemi seems to be the only one that seem to treat her with any kind of pity, but why she does is something known only to the Herald. Bernkastel's existence is something that reminds Homura of the Witches of the Circle and what happened to Madoka prior to becoming the goddess.
Has attempted to pull a Not So Different speech on Alpha and Epsilon, claiming that her origins are just like those of the Alpha's fragments, particularly Epsilon. Neither will have any of it, however, as they compare her to Gamma (who is also a troll who tortured them for his sick amusement).
Rumor has it that if she were to engage Vriska Serket in battle, the sheer amount of fortune manipulation would cause the universe to implode. This
Has been inducted to 'Trollkaiger', along with trolling friends Terumi, Izaya, Handsome Jack, and Basco. Bernkastel is awaiting the day the four will make a big, nefarious plot for them to laugh about while others suffer.
She Is trying to find a way to remove the "No Trolls Allowed" sign at the House of Commerce.
Her designation is "Trollkai Blue" and is the 2nd in command. She's now the leader of the group.
Little does Terumi know that she is actually plotting to usurp Termui's trolling portfolio. She claims to be the original "Arch-Troll", pulling similar acts and dramatic reveals of her true colors years before Terumi. She might have even been Arc Sys' inspiration for him. Unlike Terumi, Bernkastel also knows the existence of Nyarlathotep and has secretly struck a deal to watch Terumi's downfall with glee, together.
Recently, she got the title of Malicious Trolling from Terumi the day he got defeated by Hakumen, this automatically becoming the leader of the Trollkaigers and demoting him as her second-in-command. But since Terumi is trying to recover his bad reputation, she prefers not to steal his prized title, instead sharing it. But until then, Bernkastel chose to enjoy the 'Terumi humiliation show' that Nyarlathotep promised to her, at Terumi's expense.
Despite their differences, the only time that you will EVER see Bernkastel and Rika ever get along is if there is any talk about Teppei Houjou.
Merrill's ability to get lost is matched only by the ridiculous places she has ended up ranging from the Go kart tracks in the House of Travel, a cupboard in the House of Food, Dream's Bathroom, and once she accidentally wandered into the Council of Shadow's Chamber. She couldn't see anyone because it was to dark and wandered out again about a minute later.
Merrill is frequently found digging through the House of Knowledge's section on Elven History. Sadly her progress has been slow since there is quiet a lot of Elven histories and she has a habit of getting lost in the shelves.
Rumor has it that the Chaos Gods of the Warp are entice her into making a Face-Heel Turn. It may only be thanks to Hawke's influence that she has not accepted their offers.
Merrill is known to be "friends" with Fenris, a known hater of magic. Similarly, she is known to be associated with Anders, whose actions have not exactly given mages a good name.
Ascended after becoming hugely popular despite only one appearance thus far, though very un-subtle Foreshadowing hints she'll return.
Though she wields a Keyblade in battle, she firmly prefers magic over physical combat. She uses her Keyblade as a medium to channel her powers, and enhances her Keyblade strikes with her magic in turn.
Currently absent from the Pantheon, as she challenged Master Xehanort to combat to try and keep him from ascending to his current position. Thought she stalled him for a time, she was trapped in the Realm of Darkness in the aftermath of the battle. Fans and her fellow gods await forthcoming information in future games in her series to explain if, when, and how she'll be freed.
Some in the House of Love have accused Aqua of stealing worshipers from them, as her gratuitous character design rivals theirs. Aqua has the good grace to order the defectors back, but aside from the occasional bout of blushing from all the attention, she doesn't seem to mind them.
She is a Magical Girl and witch, as of the current she resides in the same place as Madoka.
Despite being fallen, Madoka Kaname will always try to help her... since the two of them were close friends.
Archer tends to ask about her idol, Mami Tomoe, and her... Unlimited Musket Works. Wonders if he can add her flintlocks and Sayaka's Cutlasses to his collection. Sayaka, for her part, listens to his many stories with interest.... if she, Archer and Shirou happen to be in the same room, things get interesting.
If not in this house, Sayaka can be found in the House of Music, listening to a violin recital of Ave Maria. Sayaka is known to cry while she enjoys the song, says it's her last memory of "him". Note: This is the only thing that is known to stop Oktavia from rampaging (outside of Madoka).
Oktavia is known for occasionally attempting to take over the House of Music by engulfing it into her barrier. Listening to her minions playing for too long can make one lose his soul, therefore Gods and Goddesses plug their ears before making any attempt to stop her.
Sayaka/Oktavia represents how everyone has the power to choose Damnation or Salvation. She breaks any "forced" Character Alignment effect; for good or ill. "Magical healing" or The Corruption will be heavily affected and amplified (or reduced) by the target's own decisions and will. Call upon her at your peril; If you fall, Oktavia will not allow a safety net. Nevertheless; there are enough stories of Sayaka's aid being powerful enough to break certain curses that it is very tempting.
By striving for three hundred years in the same way, you may obtain an immortal soul.” “Unseen we can enter the houses of men, where there are children, and for every day on which we find a good child, who is the joy of his parents and deserves their love, our time of probation is shortened. The child does not know, when we fly through the room, that we smile with joy at his good conduct, for we can count one year less of our three hundred years. But when we see a naughty or a wicked child, we shed tears of sorrow, and for every tear a day is added to our time of trial!”
After finding out about Tzeentch's involvement in the Magical Girl system, it's easier to trigger transformations into Oktavia. Finding out that there was a higher power making sure that you always screw up in the end can do that.
She is the only Puella magi that's aware of Lord Kroak's aid, but even then only on a sub-conscious level stemming from what she thinks is a bad dream involving her transforming into Oktavia only for a mummified toad to bind her with enchanted chains until Madoka intervined. His last words being "I...am here....to help you...." The event was no dream, but her memories of the incident were wiped of his involvement. Needless to say the idea of a different higher power being there to protect you does help her keep her cool a bit.
She has recently found a kindred spirit in the form of Captain Martin Walker, as both have gone through very similar trials, resulting in both forced to realize their foolish ideals of heroism.
After another mistake led her into turning into Oktavia, she was 'purified' by a nearby Miki Aono/Cure Berry. Sayaka quickly became a good friend of her, not just on the voice, but she was impressed on Miki's resolve and success as a Magical Girl, and occasionally wished that she might've been reborn in a similar universe like hers. The fact that Miki instead understood Sayaka's plight instead of flaunting her more fortunate life, and also not blaming her and knowing that it's the machinations of Kyubey that is to blame, made things even smoother.
Recently accepted the tutelage of one Master Ip Man, who although admires and respects Sayaka's stuanch devotion to justice, constantly reminds his new student to not lose sight of family and friendship in her devotion to the good-fight.
Touma Kamijou, God of Punching Mages (Kami-yan, Imagine Breaker, He Who Cleanses God and Exorcises The Devil, La Persona Superior a Dio aka The Person Higher Than God)
Lesser God (although the... thing sealed in his arm is likely at least a Greater God)
Symbol: A seemingly normal Right Hand
Alignment: Neutral Good, leans towards Chaotic Good
Ascended after punching both one of the most powerful magic users on the planet in the face, and then quickly following up punching an Angel out of existance after dropping a 40 KM long Ominous Floating Castle on it.
Touma is a stanch believer in EQUALITY, and though usually reluctant, will not hesitate to punch women or even young teenage girls in the face if he believes they deserve it. The other Gods and Goddesses are not sure weather to applaud this behaviour or be disgusted by it.
Several members of the Mentalism Pantheon are aware of his absolute memory loss, and find themselves amazed by the fact he can keep it hidden. They don't quite understand how he can pull it off so easily. Or remain functional for that matter.
As his Anti-Magic ability relies solely in his right hand, some have attempted to chop his arm off in order to seal his powers. This is apparently a bad idea.
With Kiritsugu Emiya in the pantheon, they both form a Magus Killer Duo, and with Naruto Uzumaki, they form The Paragon Duo. Both Touma and Naruto get along excellently, although Touma has to be careful with his Imagine Breaker if it accidentally comes in contact with Naruto when the latter's doing a powerful ninjutsu.
Ascended together with Spike (currently a demigod without a proper position), and keeps writing letters about friendship to Princess Celestia. Was very offended to learn her revered teacher was not part of the Tropes Pantheon and is currently looking for a way to deify her.
Despite her irritation, she finally found a way for her beloved teacher through the beast house as co-goddess of the Winged Unicorn, and the two later found themselves as co-goddesses of ruling princesses. The entire house of magic was filled with Twilight bouncing around saying, "Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!" when she learned the truth. She is currently trying to deify her older brother Shining Armor and foalsitter/sister-in-law Princess Candance.
As Element of Magic, Twilight Sparkle possesses the power to call upon the rest of the Mane Cast to make use of the Elements of Harmony on anything that stands in their way. As all six have been deified, this uses much less energy than it used to.
Telekinesis is still her signature ability, and the one least likely to go horribly awry. Already capable of amazing feats pre-Godhood, and with the inherent increase of power that comes with being part of the Pantheon, nobody is really sure where Twilight's limit even IS.
When she is neither in the library nor hanging out with friends, she tries to help with whatever she can, wherever she can. Her organizational skills come in handy and so does her magic, though other Gods do often get tired of Twilight's triple-checking of checklists. Most keep quiet about it though - everyone knows that checklists areSerious Businessto Twilight Sparkle.
Tried to read Twilight. It was one of the rare books she has failed to finish, and the fact that she shares her name with it (plus one of Edward's defining characteristics) makes her mane go up in flames sometimes.
In one obscure tome she found a spell that caught her attention by both its effects and its very name: TwilightSpark. She hasn't had the chance to try casting it yet, but the Gods are rather scared that she just might succeed.
Recently ascended within her continuity, and what, exactly, she is going to to with the power is unknown.
Shortly after the above a human with similar colors to those of Twilight was seen hanging around the Pantheon and doing all sorts of weird things as if they don't knew how to use their body or act as human. Anarchy Stockings has denied that she is related in any way to these events and the description of the strange person seems to confirm her story.
Since she got her Wings Twilight has been crashing a lot while learning to Fly, even with the guidance of her friend Rainbow Dash. some gods joke that rather than flying Dash is givin her lessons on crashing.
There was once a time that Quan Chi was actually a honored member of the Pantheon, though not really owning a house. After a certain something which involves a LOT of Ass Pull and something too rigged to his favor, he fell to the Disgraces. He found his way out when the Court of the Gods discovered a much worse offender in Gary Smith and realized that his offenses were mainly tied to one event, which ruined the characterization of multiple other as well. Thus he obtained a more fitting spot thanks to his one-time ally and Deadly Alliance partner Shang Tsung.
Has enslaved Sub-Zero's avatar, making him temporarily depowered. When this is going to last is unknown. He also did the same to Smoke's. However, against all odds and to his irritation, Smoke still made it to the Pantheon and worked with Sub-Zero to decrease his influence over their respective enslaved avatars.
Recently Ascended to the pantheon by her father's request. All the leaders of the pantheon agreed, so long as if they did, they wouldn't piss asura off and him and his daughter could finally have some peace and quiet they deserved.
Somehow, a golden spider ended up possessing her, claimin to be the True God, the spinner of life, and the source of all mantra. Asura was pissed, but had to wait until the time came to get her back from being possessed.
Before being possessed, Mithra got along really well with other good deities, and was happy that Madoka was able to save her world with her loving power and saved the Magical Girls from their suffering, something that she admires.
While technically an intermediate deity, it was her power that allowed Asura to achieve his greatest potential before ascending, so she has potential to be much more important in the grand scheme of things.
Her power over faith and using that as a power source is caught the eye of Amaterasu, and it attracts ammy to her. Both are very friendly towards one another.
Allies: Alphonse Elric, Roy Mustang, Alex Luis Armstrong, Philemon (Because he's much nicer than the Truth), Mario, Roy Mustang, Alex Louis Armstrong, Vash the Stampede, Micah Sanders, Guile, Kenshin Himura, Kanji Tatsumi,
Now that his brother's back in his human form, he'll just serve justice although he isn't very noble.
Is utterly disgusted at the depravity of Relius Clover because the latters actions are similar to Shou Tucker. Wesker's also high on his target list, considering he and Relius are allies, with the purpose of seeking perfection. Ghetsis is no different than the rest of his enemies.
This causes him to reluctantly strike an alliance of sorts with Mad Scientist Mayuri Kurosutchi, who somewhat respects his philosophy, but still doesn't think very highly of him.
Has a huge amount of contempt for Basco ta Joloka abusing the concept of Equivalent Exchange, sacrificing and betraying humans for his own benefit.
Resent Terumi with a flaming passion because his demeanor reminded him of Kimblee's. Only much worse.
It's not a good idea to pull Grand Theft Me on him. The last time he was on the receiving end of it, he destroyed them by turning himself into a Philosopher's stone, making it backfire.
Although he's in a neutral relationship with Noel Vermillion, He has worked with her to save her friend. Despite this, he doesn't think much of her. However, no one has ever pointed out theirinsecurities, both of which regarding small size. Value your life if you do.
For some reason, Guile reminds him of his superior, Roy Mustang, due to having the same voice. He does learn that Guile has a friend he lost as well, reminding him of another military buddy, Maes Hughes.
Now with the return of Homunculus (Father), Ed's alchemy will be more of use than before in case of a Homonculi attack.
Is rather uneasy with Dovakhiin due to the fact that the God of Dragonslaying keeps using Soul Gems so carelessly due to how they are so similar to Philosopher Stones. He has confronted him about it, but Dovahkiin always defends his actions by claiming that they either contain the souls of bandits, wolves or giant rats. It does little to make Edward feel more comfortable about it.
Finds a good friendship with Tatsuya Suou due to the many similarities they have, including brothers who love cats, and sacrificing something after everything with the Eldritch Abomination is over. He hears of Nyarlathotep through him (and Philemon).
Followers: Anybody he DIDN'T screw over when they wanted him to grant wishes.
Allies: Hazama, Nyarlathotep, The Joker, Johan Liebert, Chaos
Enemies: Sweet Tooth (after he gave him his last wish), almost every competitor of the Twisted Metal Tournaments.
He is confirmed to posses some of the strongest magics in the Pantheon, due to his ability to easily warp reality, space and time. The only thing that keeps him from becoming a Greater God or even an Overdiety is the fact that he can only use his magic in order to grant someone wishes. To make matters worse for him, he can't refuse to grant a wish either, even if it may end up badly for him. Of course, he always finds a way to screw around with the wishes he is demanded to grant.
Due to his vast amount of money, he spends a lot of time in the House of Commerce, planning new ideas for his Twisted Metal tournament as well as growing the influence of Calypso Corp.
He seems to have a soft spot for people seeking revenge or incredibly simple wishes, since most people that had had those kind of wishes has always gotten their desires fulfilled without any strings attached. Maybe that's because the simpler a wish is, the harder it is to twist it around.
He always has a large amount of mooks nearby to use as cannon fodder in case Sweet Tooth would ever appear. The clown is still pissed about being buried alive.
Due to their love of causing chaos just for the hell of it, Calypso has become good friends with Hazama. That doesn't mean he won't try to screw up any of his wishes, though. This gives Nyarlathotep the giggles, as Terumi claimed to be higher than him in every way possible.
Davy Jones seems to have a very strange relationship with him. Calypso, for his part, can not figure out why.
Kyuubey doesn't seem to like him much, citing the waste of energy that comes from Calypso's habit twisting the wishes to end with the wisher's death almost instantly, rather than letting the victim 'simmer'.
Allies: The Puella Magi, The Emperor of Man (covertly), Reptile、Kiritsgu Emiya, The Basterds
Enemies: All four chaos gods (especially Tzeentch), Gork/Mork, Quan Chi, Bernkastel, Terumi, Nyarlathotep, Joker, Kyubey, Teppei Houjou.
Barring Tzeentch, Kroak is quite possibly the strongest mage in the pantheon. This claim is backed up by him being a member of an entire race of arch mages who's definition of "minor tweaks" include permanent weather changes and messing with tectonic plates.
The Golden Tablets of Lustria foretell of a prophecy in which 5 human children would bring hope and dispel entropy and chaos. Lord Kroak believes the Puella Magi are those children, thus he frequently aids them from behind the shadows, especially in matters against Tzeentch. Homera's pragmatism rings closest to him.
There have been reports of small bipedal chameleon like things skittering about in their realms as of late. Those are in fact Lord Kroak's scouts/spies, secretly sending information on the locations of back up copies to the old MG system.
After the "Fear Toxin" incident, an event that very nearly destroyed the Pantheon once its full scope had unfolded, he has become much more open in his aid of them and the Sisterhood in general. As part of this, he has ordered the security around the Sisterhood beefed up in the form of some rather.....scary....bodyguards, with the deadliest and most powerful of the lot directly assigned to Madoka.
The irony of the Sisterhood's helper being Not So Different from one of their worst enemies is duly noted.
Through him, Reptile finally managed to get a home with other Lizard folk. The two get along pretty well, with Kroak employing him as an assassin. This, alongside his extreme methods, put him at odds with Litchi, the one who stored and took care of Reptile before he arrived.
Kroak's thoughts about this: A confused Face Palm. He thinks it to be "Warm blood" overreaction, since Kroak believes that as a healer, she should know better about the mental/emotional health of someone is just as important as their physical health. It's not like he's trying to permanately take Reptile away from her. Besides, he wouldn't hesitate to aid against Terumi since "he is a blight upon the pantheon and creation that needs to be erased.''.
Used to be on good terms with Kyubey, that is until its involvement in the "Great Upheaval" in which it tried to recreate witches, thus undermine certain golden tablets. He decided to punish it with a "Deliverance of Itza" (basically a magic equivilant of a nuclear explosion). Homura got to Kyubey first, with her own idea of recompense.
Not being one to waste magical energy, he put that charged up spell to good use by deciding to follow through with Kyoko and Sayaka's request regarding a certain Teppei Houjou. The resulting mushroom cloud could be seen across the pantheon for hours. He now frequently teams up with The Basterds in beating down the holder of the portfolio that Pay Evil unto Evil and Kick the Son of a Bitch target.
Has a sign outside his domain on how not to draw the attention of his Lizardmen followers. 1. Don't be evil, lest we be ruthless in destroying you. 2. If not under #1, don't provoke us. 3. When visiting me, don't do anything that can be interpreted as being even slightly suspicious. My Temple Guards' brains are hard-wired to perceive even the slightest suspicious behaviour as a threat against me regardless of your intentions.
Seems to be pretty chill with Kiritsugu Emiya for his beliefs on war, which earned Kroak his respect. Kiritsugu on the other hand returns the respect with a faint smile on his face.
An unloved sick child, Ellen became a witch in hope of curing her sickness. Instead, she found a spell to switch bodies with others. Despite this, few ever pity Ellen, as her acts of horrific cruelty are far beyond redemption.
Ellen has no friends or allies in the Pantheon. All the gods know what she tends to do to her "friends".
Despite his new position amongst the gods of the Pantheon, he rarely visits this place for two main reasons. The first being that he doesn't like to share power with the other gods, instead bossing over the dieties of Mount Olympus as he sits on his golden throne. The other reason being that Kratos nearly destroyed the entire House of Magic when he found out about his recent accension. The few times he does appear is when it's time for a fight, when he feels to get it on with members in the House of Love or when he keeps fighting his son for the Blade of Olympus.
Not many members of the House of Love look forward to his visits. If Panty Anarchy (One of the few women who can stand him) is to be believed, he might be an amazing lover who knows how to take charge, but he does NOT take no for an answer. And he has a REALLY bad habit of never wearing protection, leading to him having MANY illegitamate children!
Zeus might be one of the best marksmen in the entire Pantheon, considering how he can hit the smallest of targets with his lightning bolts from the sky high tops of Olympus, even with clouds blocking his sight.
Though it's not clear how powerful Zeus' lightning bolts can be when he's at full strength or when he decides to become Thunder and Tempest Incarnate, but it is proven by the House of Technology that at times they can reach up to 21 thousand gigawatts.
Whenever Zeus and Kratos do fight (mostly over trying to get their hands on the Blade of Olympus), most of the other members of the Pantheon do everything in their power to limit or repair the damage as quickly as possible while evacuating any weaker inhabitant from the area. The reason for this dire security measure is because the last time Kratos and Zeus were locked in mortal combat, it ended with the destruction of the entire world!
Has pique an interest in Asura and his fighting skills, but is advised against making any moves on his daughter Mithra, who also resides in this house.
Zeus has a very uneasy relation with the Nordic God of Thunder, Thor, mostly over how they treat their followers. Where the Odinson is willing to fight and die for his people and allies in a heartbeat in order to protect them from any threat, Zeus on the other hand, barely lifts a finger when his followers are slaughtered by the hundreds. In fact, he's perfectly willing to screw over all of them for the slightest of offenses. Give him the bad part of a buffalo? Your entire people goes without fire. Claim that you're a better lover than him? Your entire continent goes infertile. Say that his beard looks stupid? The entire planet goes hairless and unattractive.
Xanthe of the Sisterhood, having the bragging rights of once telling GOD HIMSELF to get out of her "Man-Free Zone" without suffering any greater consequences, thought she could do the same to the King of Olympus when she found him relaxing joyfully on the "Woman-only grass" after he had witnessed the Death Battle between Kratos and Spawn. He proved her wrong. Very wrong. Horrifcly wrong. To make a very disturbing story short: the "Man-free Zone" is now a smoldering wasteland of ashes that has become a symbol to the rest of the Pantheon of Zeus' lack of tolerance towards mortal foolishness and it took weeks for the best healers of Mary Suetopia to pull Xanthe's crispy pieces back together again.
Whenever the Olympic Games take place, he is always seen watching every single sport take place in the House of Sports, thinking that they are carried out in order to pay him tribute. The other gods who partake in the Olympic Games simply play along in order to get him out of their hair for a while, knowing that these games are a massive case of Serious Business for him. In fact, he takes it so seriously that he even tries to stop many gods from the House of War to carry out their jobs during these seasons. Any interruption of the Olympic Games will strike a nerve that is best avoided.
His relationship with his brother, Hades, has become VERY confused ever since they both joined the Pantheon. When they are in the realm of Olympus, Greece, Italy or Rome, they tend to have a proper brotherhood (or at least as proper as the Olympian gods can get). However, the moment they meet on the grounds of the Pantheon, Hades becomes far more prone to betrayal and Zeus becomes far more paranoid against his older brother. In fact, he even tends to forget that Hades is supposed to be older than him whenever they met in the Pantheon. The strange effect wears of the moment they return to their original realms. They try not to talk about it during family meetings.
Recently, the Gods have noticed that having him around the Disney-based deities is a great idea in order to keep his otherwise bad behavior on a low. To say that he takes a level in kindess would be a massive understatement. Sadly, it all goes to hell if Kratos can be found within a 500 mile radius of his position.
