Some deities ascend to the Pantheon through their sheer power and mastery in combat. After all, Gods are supposed to be powerful. Whenever there is war, or there is an invasion, these beings are called into action and lays down sheer ass-kicking to those who dare endanger the Pantheon. These are the beings whose combat abilities have reached godlike levels and thus take their seat amongst the Pantheon.
The realm of War is a varied landscape, alternating between city and forest and tunnel and ruin and arena. Basically, if you can fight in it, on it, under it, or around it, it will be there. Any sparring between the gods tends to take place here, with surroundings chosen by mutual agreement (though most aren't all that picky). Sparring between the gods also tends to take place at the nearby House of Combat.
The place is always being constantly destroyed and rebuilt. So far, the House of Commerce has made a huge fortune off contracts to repair the damage caused by the constant battles. Some have questioned what, precisely, this section of the Pantheon is beneficial to. The traditional response is "absolutely nothing". The longer response: "It makes for a good place for the gods to get their stress out by beating each other to a pulp while also exercising their minds to maintain order in the pantheon among the other gods.
As a note, The Grand United Alliance of Good and The Grand United Alliance of Evil only occasionally fight their battles in this house. After all, what's the point of an all encompassing war, if you only ever fight in the same place? Mind you Cosmos is the one who tries to keep the fights in here, but Melkor won't have any of it.
Oh, for the record... don't expect some kind of War Gods joining this house... however, one of them joined in this house, and the other recently moved to the House of Weapons.
Allies: The Unconquered Sun, Luna, the other Maidens
Followers: The Sidereal Exalted, particularly the Chosen of Battles
It is the role of Mars to determine how all conflicts, great and small, will play out. Many in this House recognize her as their leader—as for the rest, she's obliged to knock a few heads about when she wants something done. Don't let the term "Maiden" fool you; she's more than up to the task.
One of the Duumvirate of War, alongside Kratos. They take turns taking charge based on the situation, with Mars covering Tactical and Defensive warfare. Do not mistake this for a harmonious relationship, however; Mars cordially despises Kratos, and would much prefer his style of warfare to have no divine backing at all. His recent actions have given her another opinion though.
Has inevitably clashed with that pretty boy Dante, both frequently destroying entire countries in a completely awesome way. They have both agreed to limit their conflicts to constant one-upmanship.
He won his title from Kratos Aurion. He enjoys the increase to HP and INT.
Has an extremely short temper and a really good memory for grudges. The Gods of Prophecy stay as far away from him as metaphysically possible, and for VERY good reason, he has a bad habit of screwing destiny.
One of the Duumvirate of War, alongside Mars. They take turns taking charge, with Kratos covering offensive war, and all forms of berserker and mindless rage-based combat. Don't assume this means they get along, though; Kratos hates Mars and everything she stands for, and would utterly destroy her given half a chance.
Despite his nature, Kratos is actually driven by the power of hope, which he ultimately spreads to the mortals.
Has once been defeated by the trio of Cole MacGrath, Nathan and Sackboy at sometime in the tournament. He seemed to have respect and hatred for the three now.
His hatred for Sackboy further increased when him and Nathan were beaten later on.
Once, he faced the hellspawn known as Spawn in a Death Battle to see which was the greater God Slayer. It ended with Spawn impaling Kratos through the head. Kratos has yet to have forgotten that defeat, and trains rigorously in the event Spawn joins the Pantheon. He also refuses to speak at ALL about it. When Dante mentioned it after the battle, [[spoiler:Kratos immediately challenged him to a fight.
Due to the recent arrival of his father, Zeus, The House of Magic is constantly on the look-out for Kratos as The Council of Shadows does everything in their power to make sure that the God of War never finds out about his father's whereabouts. The last time he found out that Zeus had entered the grounds of Pantheon, the House of Magic was nearly destroyed by his Roaring Rampage of Revenge.
Sophitia Alexandra and Percy Jackson are royally pissed off at him for killing off the Olympians, especially Hephaestus, who got the former's journey started; and Poseidon, the latter's father. Percy plans to seek revenge once he regains the Curse of Achilles. On the other hand, all Saints of Athena, thus far just Hyoga, Shun and Ikki, are all royally pissed off at Kratos dissing their mistress and claiming her to be an usurping, greedy Manipulative Bitch, an insult they will not forgive, on top of his overall brutal nature.
Kratos does not care about Poseidon, but when asked about Hephaestus, Kratos seemed saddened as he did not want to kill him. Hephaestus was simply a father protecting his daughter and Kratos would have done nothing to him if he did not try and kill him first. He has no regrets on dissing Athena, however, after seeing her manipulative nature and KNOW that the Saints are also capable of taking down Gods of higher ranks than themselves, just like him... They're welcome to try him.
He's surprised to see Aphrodite in the Pantheon, noting that he probably hadn't killed her back then. But seeing that she wasn't actively blocking his path, Kratos still tolerates her. But he has constantly insisted her that she should stop comparing him with Ares.
Kamina always scheduled time to give a speech to the masses at his chambers about manliness, trust and general badassery when he first ascended, but after the second time the Pantheon got too crowded from the masses clamoring to hear him, so he began holding them elsewhere.
Simon the Digger was once Kamina's prophet and high priest, wandering the world and drilling through the impossible; he ascended as a lesser god in Kamina's service as the patron deity ofdrills. Simon has learned well from Kamina, and may well surpass his mentor . . . if he hasn't already.
Kamina is the only being to ever tolerate Leeroy Jenkins, because he does share his philosophy, "Reasoning should just be kicked to the curb!"
When the final battle of good and evil comes, Kamina has been pre-appointed by Cosmos to give a speech to get her warriors fired up and ready for the conflict. Reportedly, according to those who overhear him practicing, part of it goes "Don't believe in yourselves. Believe in the Tropers who believe in you!"
In addition to the usual, Kamina boasts he's the Trope Namer for Beyond the Impossible, and will show video footage of his battles with Simon to any who need explanation of what he was talking about.
Shares a strong friendship with the previous Unlosing Ranger Pirohiko Ichimonji, who is to Super Heroes as Kamina is to Super Robots. The two met briefly when Pirohiko had a near death experience via Car Accident. The two found that they both share the same life values and also a similar relationship to their younger successors.
Has taken interest in an Ace Pilot named Woolf Einnacle due to similarities in their roles, and the fact that he once quoted him.
He and Alexander the Great have complete mutual respect for one another. Alexander considers Kamina a true king, because of his ability to rally an army to conquer the surface, one that persisted and fulfilled its goal after his death. Likewise, Kamina can only stand in awe at the size of Alexander's Ionian Hetairoi, and hopes that he or Simon can eventually turn the entirety of Team Dai-Gurren into a similar Reality Marble. Also, given their similar boisterous personalities, they often like to drink together.
