Prophecy and Fate
The House of Prophecy sits upon the highest mountain, standing above the rest of the Pantheon as if silently watching them. There are a lot of rumors about what the inside of the House looks like. The truth is that it is possibly the most spartan and austere of the Houses - very plain, very bare of comforts, a rather boring place. That has not stopped a brave few from climbing up in order to ask the inhabitants what the future holds. Most either never reached the top or were frustrated by prophetic gibberish, and the few that had the patience to listen returned... changed somehow, though none would speak of what had taken place. Occasionally, a deity from the House of Prophecy would come down from the mountain and offer to tell fortunes... for a price, of course. However, many would find their predictions frustratingly vague and nonsensical, while others would have preferred not to have known their fortunes at all.
Kamina currently stands as the House of Prophecy's number one threat, due to his alarming invisibility to prescience was well as the ability to change fate. The House of Prophecy is quick to involve itself in any issue that pertains to him.

The Five Maidens are, collectively, the undisputed head of the House of Prophecy. The other members of the House read Fate or carry it out; the Maidens are largely responsible for shaping it, and for compensating when things don't go according to plan.
Tens to get into a LOT of arguments with the other gods, partially because most in the houses believe we make our own fate. He tends to get into daily fights with Kane, which usually ends in disintegration (though who gets disintegrated varies).
Ascended after ending a war by leading the UPSF's forces to victory against the Raalgons in an epic confrontation with absolutely no casualties. On either side. The rest of the pantheon is utterly befuddled as to whether this was a feat of brilliant planning or an ungodly stroke of dumb luck.
Since ascending, there have been exactly 3,297 attempts on his life by other deities vying for his position. All of them have failed, most of which Tylor was — and probably still is— entirely oblivious to.
Is the main driving force behind why Gaunt's Ghosts are so goddamn Badass. With her sidekick bodyguard Brin Milo, she floats around the Pantheon devising plans and prophecies that put even Tzeentch to shame.
Discoverer and foremost (albeit only) expert on Karmatron Dynamics, the science of karma. On a micro scale, it allows encoding information in even seemingly random molecular motion (order in entropy) and nullification of teleportation's Alias problem. On a macro scale, it is nothing less than the methodical study and control of destiny itself.
Has many sides to his personality. The other gods tend to steer clear of him, as he can be alternately introspective, frothingly insane, and amusingly quirky, sometimes one right after the other or all at once. Most often, though, he is deviously dangerous, more so than most because so few people have any clue what he's up to.
Link, God of Diversified Weaponry (The Hero of Time, Hero of the Winds, Grasshopper)
Symbol: The Triforce
Alignment: Varying with each incarnation, but always good.
Does double duty, also being a member of the Weapons pantheon.
Destined to reincarnate in an endless cycle for as long as there is evil. Has to build up all of his skills and weapons every time, but, fortunately for any Hylian therapists, does not retain memory of past lives. Every time he is reborn, dies, and ends up in the Pantheon, he's surprised to find out about his godhood. Every time.
Subject to an equally endless line of prophecies, most of which only apply to one lifespan each.
The other Prophecy Gods let him in to this house to do their errands. When it comes to MacGuffin Delivery Services, particularly matched sets, you can't hire much better than Link. And he can get a bottle of milk from the cow to the god paying in two minutes flat, or it's free.
Needless to say, with all of this reincarnation going on, he is pretty much Virtuous' bitch.
Actually moved on centuries ago, but he predicted every possible event that his presence would be needed for and left a series of videotapes labeled with a date and time of when to play them, which function more or less exactly as his actual presence would.
When the final battle of Good and Evil occurs, no one is sure what these two will do. Kain has said he'll do what best benefits him, but with the way his mind works it's hard to say if he'll be siding with either Cosmos or Melkor or will try to go it alone. Raziel meanwhile has pledged to fight for good, but he's very prone to manipulation and making hasty decisions, and by his nature as a walking Temporal Paradox that disrupts the timestream with his presense, the chaos he sews in his wake could benefit either side unwillingly.
Though they parted on good terms, since the two ascended to the Trope Pantheon Kain has passed the time by occasionally opening time portals and throwing Raziel into a random point in history for kicks. He then watches Raziel stumble his way back to the present without realizing how much and how often he's changing history without knowing it. Their relationship has gone south again once this happened the second time.
Because Kain is such a Jerkass and is the one responsible for killing Raziel, the two have difficulty trusting each other. But they're Genre Savvy enough to ignore people who try to make them into full enemies again, as they realize their respective versions of the Soul Reaver are among the few weapons that can kill the other for good, and they recognize the two of them are Not So Different. It is said that if the two of them were to combine the Soul Reaver back together to create the blade at its highest form of power, even their fellow gods should be wary.
Originally Yukiteru alone was supposed to have this position but due to a certain pink haired Yandere keeping him at the Love house so often. As a result he's always out of the house. His way of resolving this was to give part of the position to someone else more available and he decided it would be Minene, as a form of apology for blinding her in one eye.
