Pantheon / Prophecy

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. The other threat aside from him are The Nephalems since they are basically Immune to Fate.

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".

The Prophets

    Absol 
Absol, Goddess of Falsely Persecuted Omen (The Disaster Pokémon, Pandora)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/absol_5323.png
Mega Absol: 
  • Lesser Goddess, Intermediate Goddess as Mega Absol
  • Symbol: Her scythe-like "horn"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Gender: Female
  • Ability: Pressure (Magic Bounce as Mega Absol)
  • Moves: Foul Play, Razor Wind, Night Slash, Psycho Cut
  • Portfolio: Dark Is Not Evil, Bearer of Bad News, Hero with Bad Publicity, Chronic Hero Syndrome, Critical Hit Focus
  • Domains: Disaster, Heroism
  • Allies: Rayquaza, Madoka Kaname, Chuggaaconroy, Terra, Seigfried Schtauffen, Midna, Ron Weasley, Spiderman, Archer, Artina, Gardevoir, Gallade, Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury, Clank, Darkrai, Scyther
  • Enemies: Groudon, Kyogre, Magikarp, Kyubey, Kenji Setou, Draco Malfoy, Banette, Nephrite
  • Opposed by: The GUAG Magical Girl Sisterhood
  • Uneasy Alliance: Homura Akemi, Corvo Attano
  • Odd Friendship with: Latias
  • Upon ascension Absol was only warmly welcomed by a few and pelted with many unsavoury objects by many. Shrugging this off she continues to try and warn others of impending doom.
  • She is routinely voted to be moved to the GUAG Token Evil Teammates and has only been saved from this by the wiser gods forcibly overruling this decision.
    • Fortunately, Absol's partnership with Riku has given her better publicity lately, though only if she's with him. Who knows what could've happened if she was partnered with Terra, who's equally distrusted by the pantheon for a similar reason.
  • Dislikes many of her fellow Pokémon gods that cause chaos throughout the pantheon. One of the few she is on good terms with is Rayquaza, with Absol attempting to summon it whenever Groudon and Kyogre fight.
  • Gets along well with Chuggaaconroy due him having once travelled with an Absol named Pandora.
  • Absol has in the past attempted to warn girls against forming contracts with Kyubey, knowing some disaster will befall them and make the offer tempting. The majority of attempts failed with Absol again being blamed for the disasters. Despite this she refuses to give up.
    • These efforts have eventually earned the trust and adoration of Madoka Kaname, who hopes to ease people's opinions of Absol.
    • Absol's efforts against Kyubey has earned her an ally in Homura Akemi and even some sympathy but it remains fragile due to Homura's... less scrupulous actions.
    • On a somewhat better note Absol has gained a small degree of trust among some gods after an incident in which Kenji Setou, attempting to prove a link between Magical Girls and feminists, mistook Absol for Kyubey. Following this some misinterpreted this as Kenji hating Absol instead of Kyubey and because of Kenji's many logical fallacies, reasoned that 'that fluffy white demon thing' must not be that bad. Absol was annoyed by this sequence of events despite the marginally better image it received and treats Kenji with disdain.
  • Gets along well with Ron Weasley over being unreasonably hated and dislikes Draco Malfoy for being unreasonably liked.
  • Has aided Corvo Attano in the past in order to prevent a swarm of plagued rats from entering the House of Nature (with the unfortunate result of people thinking Absol was herding the rats towards it while in reality she was trying to get ahead of them) but prefers to keep distance lest Corvo gives Absol's opposition justification for hatred by accusing it of directly aiding or allowing the former's unsettling acts.
  • Absol is one of the few Pokémon that Team Rocket would never go after, due to her Mega Evolution giving her an appearance that reminds James and Meowth of Riku during the time he wore a black cloak and blindfold, much to Jessie's frustration. However, the actual main comes from when they encountered another Absol in Hoenn; they wanted to capture it, but take it back after a "boss fantasy" where it does nothing but stare at Giovanni as he brushed his teeth.
    • Speaking of which, even Riku has stated that Mega Absol gives him déjà vu. Not only that, the way he acted during that time (even after taking on Ansem's form) is identical to the behavior of the Disaster Pokémon, but they both shrug it off as a big coincidence. For this reason, the two were later assigned as partners.
  • For awhile, many gods asked whether Absol was a male or a female. She was confirmed to be a female in "Gentaro's Epilogue".
  • Absol is aware of Sailor Mercury's fall to darkness, and has offered her support. When she found out that Nephrite brainwashed her, she Mega-Evolved and attacked him with a single critical-hit Night Slash (which was then followed by Riku's Dark Aura, and Terra's Ultima Cannon).
  • She's on good terms with Gardevoir and the unascend Manectric because of their respective partners being Childhood Friends.
  • Absol is capable of Telepathy, but due to her reputation, she won't use it for anyone except those she can trust. The first deity who won her trust was Clank.
  • She sensed the Altomare Crisis, but as she couldn't get to the island city, she couldn't do anything to stop it. Because of this, Absol tried to avoid Latias out of shame for some time after she heard of Latios' death in the aftermath, but she was pleasantly surprised that Latias bears no grudge against her; Latias even told her she's a true hero for doing whatever good she can even if it means being hated. The two became unlikely friends ever since.

    Cassandra 
Cassandra, Patron Goddess of Ignored Truths (Princess of Troy, Alexandra, Kassandra)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cassandra_evelyn_de_morgan.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Trojan Horse
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, though people often think she is Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Greek Mythology, can see the future but was cursed to never be believed, warned people about the Trojan Horse but wasn't believed, went insane after the Trojan war
  • Domain: Prophecy, Power, Insanity
  • Allies: The House of Prophecy, especially Absol, Hercules
  • High Priest: Tim the Enchanter
  • Enemy: Hera, Aphrodite, Nerif
  • Opposed: Athena, Kratos, Odysseus
  • Pitied by: Jack Bauer, The Doctor, Fox Mulder, Harry Potter, Commander Shepard, Rika Furude, Homura Akemi, Woody
  • Doubted by: Hermione Granger, Dana Scully, Councilor Sparatus
  • Hearing about her ascension, Hercules personally paid her temple a visit because one of their alternative versions are good friends. However, upon learning about this Cassandra's story, Hercules became angry at Apollo for giving her this curse and hopes she will get better with time.
    • Because Hercules is one of the few people who genuinely respect her prediction and one of their alternative version shared were in the same school when they were teenager, Cassandra was NOT impress with Kratos's action of killing Hercules and one of her other friend Icarus despite Kratos has utter sympathy for her for also being screwed over by an Olympian.
  • Her ascension has caused the Pantheon a major headache in deciding who would handle the managing of her temple as Cassandra is a little... unfit after the event at Troy. Luckily, Hercules introduced them to a version of her resides in the Disney universe that expresses her misery by sarcasm and didn't live through the same traumatic experience; thus this version was entrusted with handling the temple.
    • However, this version wasn't very happy because her title caused people to disbelieve in her psychic hotline. This caused her to use a different name whenever dealing with callers not from the Disney universe.
  • It should be noted that her mental state has gotten worse ever since her ascension due to the power of the Status Quo dispels any attempts from any deities trying to break Apollo's curse. Many believe that is because Cassandra cannot hold her position if she was ever cured of her condition. This means no matter how Genre Savvy the deity is, Apollo's curse will make deities with lesser power than him distrust Cassandra's advice and vision. Of course, the curse intensifies to deities that have history of ignoring other people's prediction such as Hermione Granger, Dana Scully and Sparatus.
  • Many deities in the Pantheon felt utter sympathy for Cassandra for the tragedy that she went through that left her the way she is. Doubly so if they have been in a similar position of being ignored by everyone else and was proven right. This list include: Jack Bauer, The Doctor, Mulder, Harry Potter, Commander Shepard, Woody, Rika Furude and Homura Akemi. However, Homura Akemi was restricted from visiting Cassandra's temple by the House of Prophecy given the fact that Homura reacts far more negatively to her situation than the rest of Cassandra's sympathizers.
  • Do NOT mention Hera and Aphrodite's name in her temple unless you want to suffer the same fate Cassandra almost inflicted to the soldiers hidden in the Trojan Horse. She still gets rather... touchy about the fact that the goddesses she worshipped for her entire mortal life caused the Trojan War and her entire tragedy over an apple and the desire be the fairest one. Athena may get a pass in Cassandra's place as the goddess convicted and punished Cassandra's rapist after her death at his hand, but Cassandra still resents her for lending help to the enemy of Troy during the war.
    • Rumor has it that because of her ability to see the future, Cassandra has a full list of the people Zeus has and will sleep with and the name of the children result from those affair. While most dispel this notion as they think Cassandra knows better than to hide that kind of things from someone like Hera, the jealous goddess still losing sleep about the mere possibility of its existence. Cassandra's unusual quietness about the whole thing doesn't help the matter.
  • Rarely if ever step foot outside of her temple and the House of Prophecy as she was often perceived as a liar and a madwoman by everyone else. This earned her great sympathy from the good deities reside there and they tried their best to let her have as much time she need to recover from the Trojan war. Although some of them fear how powerful the effect of the Status Quo has on her recovery. She recently strikes up a friendship with Absol over shared experience of being persecuted for their prediction.

    Destiny of The Endless 
Destiny of The Endless, Anthropomorphic Personification of Destiny and Fate.
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/destinyoftheendless_3354.gif
  • Rank: Overdeity.
  • Symbol: His book.
  • Alignment: True Neutral.
  • Portfolio: Ambigious Fate, You Can't Fight Fate, The Omniscient, Screw Destiny, The Stoic, Blind Seer.
  • Domains: Destiny, Freedom, Ambiguity, Prophecy, Knowledge.
  • Allies: The other members of the Endless.
  • Enemies: Everyone who wants to Screw Destiny, (maybe. How the Book Of Destiny actually works and how many "paths" there are is left very open).
  • Rivals: The Five Maidens.
  • Opposed by: The Five Maidens of Exalted, since the latter actively participate in aiding the world, whereas Destiny almost never acts. If Destiny minds what they say, he hasn't shown it.
  • Multiple attempts have been made by other gods to steal his book so they can read it, or destroy it. Mostly, they have been unable to find him due to his being The Omniscient and gave up.
  • It is said that his book contains the universe, and knowledge of everything that has ever happened or will happen. Whether this is true or not is unknown, but many gods who have approached him more politely have been allowed to read parts of his book for themselves.
  • Most of the Pantheon is unsure what to think of him, due to his rarely speaking or interacting with others, even his own family, and only doing what his book tells him to.
  • His garden can be reached via any of the mazes in the Pantheon, through a sort of "universal path" that eventually leads there.
  • Usually does not interact directly with the rest of the Pantheon, staying in his garden unless someone is coming to try to destroy him or his book.
  • To what extent his book defines fate is unknown; Delirium has, during her saner moments, stated that there are paths "outside Destiny's Garden" to other members of the Pantheon. Many take her words to be proof that one can indeed Screw Destiny.
