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 invincibility to prescience as well as the ability to change fate. The House of Prophecy is quick to involve itself in any issue that pertains to him.
Dead silence reigned over the whole of the Pantheon after their latest prophecy came to pass: the so-called "Great Upheaval". They were not kidding when they called it that: it touched almost every house in the Pantheon in some way, shape, or form.
There was another minor prophecy about a being of happiness corrupted by an unseen darkness. Many Gods shrugged it off as it wasn't as big as the Great Upheaval that came after it, but when a forboding asylum appeared in the middle of the Friendship House, that's when gods started to get concerned about it that they asked just what was going on. The answer was known as "Project: Alternate Gentaro"
Doctor Manhattan, God of Fatalism (Jon Osterman)
Symbol: A hydrogen atom
Alignment: True Neutral (can tend towards Neutral Good)
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).
Highly respected by Xanatos and Makuta, but they do not affiliate themselves with him due to the different nature of his predictions and his generally good alignment. The God-Emperor Leto, however, loathes him because he screwed up his Golden Path that was supposed to prevent prescients from controlling humanity's future.
Actually moved on centuries ago, but he predicted every possible event that his presence would be needed for and left a of videotapes labeled with a date and time of when to play them, which function more or less exactly as his actual presence would. He has the rank of Greater God because of the very real possibility that almost every deity in the pantheon is simply following the Plan laid out by him. Notable counter-arguments include Deadpool and O-Haruhi-Sama, who may be impossible to predict or control. However, nobody really knows for sure.
The Gman may have been the one who ultimately caused Seldon to create psychohistory; or, he may just be acting all according to the Plan. Nothing the Gman has done so far seems to have screwed up Seldon's predictions, but confusingly this doesn't prove anything one way or another. Either way, Seldon's tapes haven't mentioned this and Gman isn't talking.
Speaking of said villainous breakdowns: While Kane is mostly observed as being cool and collected, even in the midst of mortal danger, disserters and usurpers have been known to send him into fits of rage, which is always followed up by said person's execution - after which he will promtly return to his calm and collected state of being.
While Kane has been reported, multiple times, to have perished at the hands of other gods, these reports always prove false.
"Of course, Troper. You can't kill the Messiah"
Even G-man respects Kane, for his tactics are devious and incredible. Both have agreed not to tangle with each-others plans for fear of a multiverse-breaking Gambit Pileup. However, G-man still hasn't let Kane forget getting blasted by GDI's Ion Cannon.
Do NOT, FOR ANY REASON, stare into Kane's bald head, he will imprison you forever. Similarly, Kane's magnificent beard has been known to Mind Control people at his bidding.
Kane's last performance was very disappointing, causing him to lose many followers. He has moved to rectify that and publicly executed his agent immediately.
Also has a spot in the Main House.
His involvement as one of the masterminds of "The Pantheonic Rebellion" is a combination of Even Evil Has Standards and respect for what Madoka represents despite his opposistion. He has ordered the Brotherhood of Nod to deploy to the "Fog of War" campaign front.
Is not to be confused with the wrestler known as Kane.

Considered the Chosen One of the Chooser of Chosen Ones. This makes Aladdin's head spin.
A very skilled sorcerer and former owner of a genie, Aladdin has a place in the House of Magic, but is commonly kept away from it to avoid jumping on all the pretty girls.
Aladdin gets on very well with Jiraiya, due to their similar roles, and their perverted attitude towards big breasts.
Often mistaken for the other, more recognised Aladdin. The two have met several times before, and participated in adventures together. On one occasion they had a magic carpet race, but the Babylon Rogues intercepted trying to steal the carpets. Sonic the Hedgehog intervened and the explosive magical battle that followed ended with all those involved crashing into a carpet store where they spent the next two hours searching for their respective carpets in the rubble.
Has a distant association with Scheherazade, a fellow Magi, who he admires for inventing the Scheherezade Gambit.
Can get melancholy around the Genie, who reminds him of his own late genie Ugo.
His ascension to the Pantheon has allowed him to go even more lecherous towards all the goddesses who happen to be well-developed. His attempt to grope Tifa Lockhart's breasts resulted in him being punched all the way out of the House of Combat.
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.
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.
Previously known to cry a lot, the real reason why he became the badass that he's now is because of the same thing that made Shinji Ikari a badass: The right hand of Bright Noa. (It was properly documented with this picture◊.)
He is heavily compared to Ed of the Cul de Sac Trio and Kero, basically for the fact that both have the same English voice. At the same time, he also gets heavily compared to Ben Tennyson, Keiichi Maebara and Sanada Yukimura for having the same Japanese voice.
Yuno Gasai has pestered him continuously to tell her where his best friend Athrun Zala is so she can capture and send him over to Vaas to make a ransom video out of him and send back to Kira. Wary of her reputation, he just boards his Gundam and flies away every time she asks.
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.
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.
Minene HATES the House of Faith, as her parents were killed during the wars of religion. Some more sympathetic gods like Artix have showed sympathy for her plight, but Minene refuses to take their apologies.
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.
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.
