    Grief, the Saint of Mourners 

Divine Classification: Ethereal

Portfolio: Grieving, Mourning, Acceptance

"It will be okay."

  • Dark Is Not Evil: She typically appears as a raven-winged goddess dressed in a black hooded cloak, and when helping mortal ponies deal with their grief, she appears as a black-pelted mare with a raven for a Cutie Mark. Despite her frightening appearance, she's very understanding, empathetic, and kind, being very dedicated to helping individuals achieve emotional closure in dealing with personal tragedies.
  • Five Stages of Grief: Weaponized. While she helps people go through this process in order to achieve emotional closure, much of her magic is based around this trope.
    • "Denial" protects herself from all attacks by denying she's being attacked. The only drawback is that she can't retaliate while using this ability, as doing so means that she has to acknowledge that she's being attacked.
    • "Anger" allows her to generate and control flames as hot as the anger of those around her.
    • "Bargaining" gives people a second chance to make amends for words said and actions done in anger by summoning the spirits of their loved ones so they can apologize. Many people wrongly assume that she can resurrect dead people and have tried to make her do so in return for some personal act or sacrifice, but it's beyond even her power to do so.
    • "Depression" allows her to generate and control water as if she herself is crying.
    • "Acceptance" allows her to heal people by converting spiritual/emotional healing into physical healing once all spiritual and emotional wounds are healed.
  • Mentor Archetype: She would become Ruby Heart's mentor after the latter became a Confessor, teaching the spectral filly the many ways of helping people achieve emotional closure and has at times behaved like a second mother figure.
  • Winged Unicorn: Her benevolence, divinity, and her raven-like wings makes people assume she's this, though others have mistaken her for a Draconequus due to her body shape, but she has neither confirmed or denied this.

    Gavisus Manes 

Divine Classification: Ethereal

Portfolio: Death, Contentment, Joy

"Die, die, we all pass away! But don't wear a frown 'cause it's really okay!"

    Audens Manes 

Divine Classification: Ethereal

Portfolio: Death, Heroic Sacrifice, Heroism

"At ease, warriors; you have earned your place in the Hall of the Honoured Dead."

    Malus Manes 

Divine Classification: Ethereal

Portfolio: Death, Sin, Punishment

"ARE YOU READY?!"

  • Dark Is Not Evil: Of the Three Deaths, Malus is the only one someone shouldn't be happy to see waiting for them, but that's because they're wicked and about to be given what they've sown, not because he's evil.
  • Dem Bones: His true form is an Alicorn skeleton.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: While he's not someone you want to see waiting for you, that's because his job is to take the wicked to the punishment for evil deeds. Otherwise, he's a nice guy and he will even give the genuinely repentant a second chance to earn a better fate.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: As a Death god who represents eternal damnation, his task is to take souls of the wicked down to hell. Fortunately for him, he's powerful enough to resist attacks on him in case said souls don't want to go. Genuine repentance and atonement, however, can convince him to spare them this fate.
  • Meaningful Name: His name means "Wicked Dead" in Latin, which fits as he's a psychopomp whose task is to drag wicked souls to their eternal punishment. However, he's not wicked himself, just very grim and serious due to the nature of his job.
  • Morality-Guided Attack: Being a god of Death whose domain represents the deaths of the wicked, he has the ability to turn a person's evil against them, either by increasing in strength or creating chains forged from their own evil that weight them down proportionally to how much they have performed.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Unlike his younger brother Gavisus, who throws afterlife parties to comfort the dead, Malus is generally somber, and becomes merciless and terrifying when taking wicked souls to their afterlife.
  • Winged Unicorn: His true form is a skeletal Alicorn who dresses like a traditional psychopomp.

    Poena, the Mistress of Punishment 

Divine Classification: Ethereal

Portfolio: Justice, Retribution, Punishment

"Justice should be pure, unsullied by mercy or pity!"

Poena was once a mortal Tulpa, born from the anger, despair, and desperation of downtrodden ponies living in a particularly corrupt kingdom, whose nobility and royalty used their power, wealth, and authority to benefit themselves.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When she tried attacking Golden Scepter for decrying her and her followers as tyrants and deluded extremists, they were quickly defeated due to how powerful Golden Scepter is. To the Alicorn Emperor's bemusement, Katharsis would show up shortly after, taking pictures of the losers and sending them to Poena's victims.
  • Freudian Excuse: She's obsessed with justice because she's the living embodiment of magic that came from downtrodden citizens of a Pony kingdom, which was ruled by extremely corrupt authority figures. Seeing the evils other depraved beings had committed throughout history had worsened her obsession.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: After she vowed to punish Temnobog for being an evil god, Temnobog warned her that her obsession with justice would eventually make her as evil and depraved as the villains she hunts down.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • While she's extremely uncompromising, abrasive, and ruthless, she does have a following of her own, mostly consisting of equally young, hotheaded deities who are incredibly frustrated with the failures and mixed successes of their older predecessors.
    • As shown with her folder quote, she thinks that justice should be executed without mercy or pity, and thinks that being merciful to criminals and sinners is akin to giving them a slap on the wrist as punishment for their misdeeds. While she's usually wrong, there are cases where being merciful has backfired, such as when Dikastís refused to kill a young Tirek because the latter had yet to commit the crimes as was predicted by an oracle, only for Tirek to become evil as was predicted.
  • Knight Templar: Deconstructed. Even among deities who embody justice and karma, she's rather obsessed with punishing the wicked, no matter how minor their crimes are. While her behavior is justifiable, given that she was born from the depraved acts of evildoers who often went unpunished, her ruthlessness and lack of mercy means that she also targets people who committed even the slightest crimes, as Evil itself will potentially grow if not snuffed out early. Because of this, according to Temnobog, she is at great risk of becoming as monstrous as the villains she hunts down. She has also tried targeting Ruby Heart for her Chain Sight ability, thinking it'll help her find sinful people faster, then attacked her when Ruby refused to join her and even compared her to Grey Hoof. Midnight Bell would later disgustedly call Poena a "total crack-nut" trying to play goddess with everypony and every-creature.
  • Made of Magic: She's categorized as an "Ethereal deity", having been born from the magic that emanated from the downtrodden citizens from an extremely corrupt and selfish Pony kingdom.
  • The Magnificent: "Poena, the Mistress of Punishment", due to her extremist beliefs on punishment and justice.
  • Not So Different: Implied; Ruby Heart mentioned to Midnight Bell and Crystal Prism an incident where she told Poena she reminded her of some of her worst neighbors, especially Grey Hoof, because of their extremism. Apparently it got Poena really mad, to the point of trying and failing to attack her.
  • Red Baron: Known as the "Mistress of Punishment".
  • Would Hurt a Child: According to Ruby Heart and Crystal Prism, there was an incident where, enraged by their refusal to agree with her ruthless interpretation of justice (or let Poena use Ruby's "Chain Sight" ability to condemn sinners), she tried to attack both of them as well as Twilight Sparkle who joined Crystal in protecting Ruby.

    Choice 
"What you choose to do, what you choose to be... they are all reflections of who you are."

Choice is the deity of Cause and Effect, Free Will, and Consequence. Not much is known about its true form, gender, age, or past. The only thing about it is it is very, very old, having come to being when the first lifeforms started developing the ability to choose.
  • Catchphrase: "You/He/She have/has chosen...wisely/poorly."
  • I Warned You: Warned the Changelings and Dragons they had chosen poorly to continue their racial hatred for eons, and it would come back to bite them. Needless to say, it was right, and it has no problem telling them so to their faces.
  • No Biological Sex: Rather appropriately for its domain of choice, Choice isn't male or female and changes which it appears as on a whim.
  • No-Sell: Any attempt to capture or enslave Choice will fail. Unless it wants to.
  • Seers: Has some form of this. It seems to know every possible choice a mortal it can make, and the consequences that would result from it. Despite its ability, it would never force a mortal to make a good choice, because it would be anathema against its own purpose and existence.
  • Time Abyss: While not a Grand Primeval, it's still a Primeval, and as old as sapient life on Equus, making it positively ancient.

    The Eldest of the Wood 

  • Expy: Of Tom Bombadil.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: It's stated he can put on the Alicorn Amulet and it have absolutely no effect on him, treating as nothing but a piece of jewelry. This is justified - as a very ancient and powerful god who is Happily Married to his wife, he has everything he could want, and thus has no need for anything else, such as the power granted by the Alicorn Amulet.
  • Time Abyss: So old no one knows how old he truly is. He's simply been there for as long as anyone can remember. Whether or not he's a Grand Primeval is unclear, but he's one of the oldest deities on the planet.

    Santa Hooves, the Jolly One 

Divine Classification: Ethereal/Ascendant

Portfolio: Good Will, Hearth's Warming, Gift Giving

Rank: N/A

"Ho ho ho! Happy holidays!"

  • Deity of Human Origin: While his exact species is unknown, he was a mortal who was allowed to Ascend into divinity after the Deer pantheons witnessed his countless good and selfless deeds, and decided to reward him after he reached old age.

    Díniydátis, the Maw of the Seas 

Divine Classification: Elemental/Ascendant

Portfolio: Sea, Storms, Whirlpools, Sea-monsters/giants, Hunger

Rank: Divine (Tier 2/Intermediate)

"I was cursed with hunger for all that flows, all that swims and all that are neither - and I must have MORE!"

    Tlalcuaz, the Hungry Goddess 

  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Implied, as she was described as a reptile-like goddess whose hunger and disposition is just as bad, if not worse, than Díniydátis's.
  • Worthy Opponent: Attempts to eat each other aside, she genuinely respects Díniydátis for her prowess and was impressed by it so much that she taught the cursed goddess how to spawn more mouths on her body, both for combat and consumption.

    Stynlla, the Baleful Tide 

    Zhōnglì, the Sage of Neutrality 

Divine Classification: Ethereal

Portfolio: Neutrality, Truth, Fair Say

Rank: Primeval

"The best way of achieving untainted wisdom is to be above, beneath, and be neither side of it all."
Zhōnglì, when asked a question of which side to take during a conflict


  • Above Good and Evil: Described as such by his profile. Unlike Emperor Blackthorn, who claims to be this trope yet is an extremely amoral individual, Zhōnglì merely sees "good" and "evil" as concepts and ideas, and as such, he is considered to be truly above good and evil in that he takes neither side, merely acting as an unbiased observer.

    Eephus 

Divine Classification: Ethereal

Portfolio: Cheating, Poor Sportsmanship, Trickery

Rank: Godling

"Grass grows, Sunbutt's star shines, birds fly; and bruddah? I don't play fair!"

Eephus is the young Griffon god of Cheating, Poor Sportsmanship and Trickery. Born from the cheating scandals that plagued sports and competition, he sows cheating and trickery among mortals; especially athletes. Loud, boisterous, and annoying; he is proof even gods can be pests.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: He embodies Cheating and Trickery, and thus sows his domains among mortals. And as the embodiment of Poor Sportmanship, his boastful and annoying personality comes from those who cheat and undermine sports for a cheap shot at victory because they think they can get away with it.
  • Attention Whore: Usually shouting "LOOK AT ME!" when in combat, if he's not throwing insults and taunts.
  • Batter Up!: Eephus wields a baseball and bat as his divine weapons, and loves braining his foes with them.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Oh yes. He's a godling, the divine equivalent of a young child, and yet because of his malicious portfolio, he is a loud, obnoxious, and bratty kid who serves as a toxic influence to athletes everywhere and even the kids he's fond of.
  • Brooklyn Rage: Loud? Check. Boisterous? Check. New York-ish accent? Check.
  • Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest: While Eephus can easily pick up one-night stands from mortals and demons alike, any attempt to flirt with Mist Fall (a Pegasus mare whom he has a genuine crush on) reduces him to awkward silence and nervous stammering.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: For all his ego and comical overconfidence, Eephus is still a god, with all the power that entails.
  • Do Wrong, Right: He considers subtle cheating "tacky", proclaiming that if one is going to cheat, they should cheat proudly and in a big way.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite his malicious portfolio and his origins as a godling born from scandals involving underhanded sports activities, Eephus considers the Tyrannos Pantheon "a bunch of psychos", refusing to work with them. He also likes to teach bullied children to defend themselves...by fighting as dirty as possible and humiliating said bullies.
  • Expy: His mannerisms, personality and baseball motif are very reminiscent of the Scout. They even have a love interest that they're trying to woo, yet are unsuccessful.
  • Flexing Those Non-Biceps: Fond of flexing to show off his figure... but since he's so skinny it's rather unimpressive, even knowing he's a god.
  • Friend to All Children: It's stated in his profile that he has a fondness for kids, and even teaches them how to deal with bullies... in the most humiliating ways possible.
  • Groin Attack: Fond of this, given his love of fighting dirty.
    • He claims to have won a fight with Entasi this way. Entasi won't say if it's true or not... but he does drop-kick anyone who askes into a volcano.
    • Trying this on Clamos failed, because the latter is simply that tough. Eephus got smacked across town for his trouble.
  • Inherently Funny Words: BONK!
  • I Shall Taunt You: And never shut up, either!
  • Jerk Jock: And proud of it!
  • Lean and Mean: Takes the form of a slender brown griffon.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's insanely fast and agile, constantly ducking and dodging every attack thrown at him as he clobbers an opponent with his bat.
  • Poke the Poodle: He sows malicious cheating among even the most beloved athletes... or just teaches kids to cheat at Rock-Paper-Scissors.
  • Sherlock Scan: Eephus can use his divine sense to find quirks in the environment that help him cheat: a hole a foe can trip in and break their ankle; an odd wind current to knock a flying foe off course, and so much more.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Despite being a new/young god and having a very specialized domain, Eephus has quite the swelled head. This has gotten him into trouble many times.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Despite his fondness for kids, he often teaches them things that adults would frown at, such retaliating against bullies via humiliating them, and cheating at games.
  • Meaningful Name: Named for an Eephus pitch: a trick baseball throw that throws off the batter with its slow speed and awkward arcing motion.
  • Morality-Guided Attack: His baseball bat deals more damage the more gallant and ethical his enemy is, and he can throw a baseball that can target and track an enemy based on their moral character.

    Amour-De-Soi 

Divine Classification: Ethereal

Portfolio: Chaos, Love, Domination, Obsession, Space (Fallen, formerly)

Rank: Divine (Tier 3/Greater)

"We are all better than we think we are."

Amour-De-Soi is a member of the divine Amaredae, the biological children of the Love Primeval, Amareros. Like her many brothers and sisters, she embodies Love - specifically, the concept of Self-Love. While Self-Love generally has a negative connotation, as people mistake it for Narcissism, Amour-De-Soi sees both concepts as being completely different from each other: Self-Love is all about confidence, acceptance, and generally feeling good about yourself, while Narcissism is a perversion that involves excessive interest in one's self to the point where they become arrogant and lose their empathy for others.

Because of what she embodies, Amour-De-Soi harbors great hatred towards those who try to break and/or demean others' self-worth, as such cruelty is anathema to her concept and enrages her terribly. This led to the creation of the Bogolenya Deer pantheon - while watching over the Elternteil Deer pantheon, she grew disgusted and angry with its members' arrogance and emotional abuse of the dark god Temnobog, who was shunned and mistreated just for being born "evil". Temnobog's twin brother, Belyolen, would encounter Amour-De-Soi during a moment of great stress; he was upset that he overheard his parents and siblings consideration of killing Temnobog, yet couldn't bring himself to break his family's hearts by rebelling. Amour-De-Soi encouraged the radiant stag to do the right thing, which led to Belyolen confronting and calling out his family on their abusive hypocrisy, and taking both Temnobog and their many regretful siblings with him.[WIP]

    Cosmos, the Serpent of Obsession 

Divine Classification: Elemental/Ethereal

Portfolio: Chaos, Love, Domination, Obsession, Space, Malice (Fallen, formerly)

Rank: Divine (Tier 3/Greater)

“They say love makes you go crazy. Well, they clearly haven’t met ME!”

Cosmos is a Draconequus who had became notorious for both the mayhem she caused at her return, and for her complex possessive relationship with Discord, for whom she would ultimately went on a mad rampage that threatened to unravel reality on Equus.

Cosmos is believed to be once a Love Goddess of a forgotten pantheon who tried to reach out and reform Discord back in his villainous days, only for him to turn it against her by seducing and corrupting her, turning her into a Draconquus like he is. Now as twisted and evil as Discord at his worst, Cosmos became obsessively in love with Discord, staying by his side and becoming his accomplice in many atrocities despite all the abuse and manipulation from the villainous Chaos serpent, and remained possessive of him even after she was sealed away in a constellation for many millennia.

Cosmos would break free of her prison in the modern day to find that her beloved Discord had reformed thanks to Fluttershy and no longer wished to be the Evil Overlord that she had fallen hopelessly for. Unable to accept that her beloved 'Darling D' had changed, she attempted to first undo the 'brainwashing' that she believed the Ponies done to him, and upon failing that, usurped his power and position in an attempt to make him love her again by 'finishing what they started' and remake the world in their image where reality and all living things are their playthings to take and break.

Ultimately defeated by the forces of Harmony in what became known as the 'Cosmos Incident', a repentant and apologetic Discord appealed to Cosmos that he really was the Discord she knew and was truly sorry for what he did to her - which finally led to Cosmos letting go of her obsessive love and realizing what she had become thanks to him. Despite doubts and distrust, Discord secured for Cosmos a chance to redeem herself and finding a new place in the world, although time will tell whether if she would ever become good again - or if she even wanted to.

(Essentially Codexverse's adaptation of Cosmos from a MLP FIM IDW Comics arc that had been since released, which means she may be subjected to revision depending on what's published)


  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Discord, who no longer reciprocate her love for him because she reminds him of some of his worst sins, but she is initially too obsessive and possessive of him to care. Considering he basically did to Cosmos what the Joker did to Harley Quinn and he has grew enough conscience to genuinely regret it, that is unsurprising.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Unlike her canonical self, she's a sympathetic character and ultimately makes a Heel–Face Turn, and even before had far more redeeming traits.
  • Affably Evil: Seems genuinely fond of the young godling Mentálne, who's currently acting as her therapist, and notably her interaction with the child goddess of psychology is where she first shows off a playful and affectionate side that was buried beneath her obsessive and depraved personality.
  • The Assimilator: While explicitly not as extreme as other examples, she does eventually found a way to assimilate the powers of Discord and many other powerful beings during her rampage as part of her ultimate goal of gaining enough power to finally overcome the forces of Harmony and remake the world in her and her beloved Discord's image. Though fortunately as events shows this was thankfully reversible.
    • It IS implied that given her domineering and possessive personality and her portfolio, this is the ultimate fate of all those who became her unfortunate victims; it's mentioned that when she's bored with them, she devours them one way or another to 'make them hers forever', implying that she traps or assimilates them inside/into her being in an expression of her ultimate domination and possession over them (She has openly admitted to have vorephile tendencies).
  • Ax-Crazy: Described as an unstable, obsessive maniac. She clearly retained the 'crazy' part of her personality from canon and acts accordingly, to the point she's willing to rip apart reality to get what she wants.
  • Be All My Sins Remembered: Even after getting over her obsession with Discord and accepts that he has wronged her, she still insists that they only hold him responsible for seducing her, corrupting her and abusing her while evil, and that no one lay all the evil she had committed on him. He may made her evil and manipulated her into committing evil, but she still committed many atrocities on her own initiative, and she did it because she likes doing it.
  • Birds of a Feather: One theory why she eventually hooked up with Temnobog, the Bogolenya Deer god of Evil and Suffering. Due to having equally dark and depraved personalities, it wasn't hard for them to bond over something they both share.
  • Co-Dragons: One of Discord's allies and rivals for his affection with Ispita the Deceiver and Discord's cousin 'Princess' Eris. Their intercine rivalry led to Cosmos getting 'Princess' Eris thrown to another dimension but also Ispita getting her sealed away by the gods fighting Discord.
  • Dragon Ascendant: When she returned in the present day and found that Discord is no longer the Evil Overlord she remembers and loves, she tries to 'fill it in' for him, resulting in the 'Cosmos Incident'.
  • Devoted to You: To Discord in the past and up to the 'Cosmos Incident'. Even when she usurped his power and position and tried remaking Equus into a World of Chaos, that was all for Discord.
    • Have this as an explicit power as part of her portfolio: as part of over control over Obsessions, she can inflict a form of Discording nicknamed 'Fixating' which cause the victim to become delusionally obsessed with other beings or things, and one way she can gain control over them is to fixate their delusional obsession to herself.
  • The Dreaded: Being one of Discord's girlfriend and accomplices in her villainous days (Resulting in rivalry with Ispita) and then going full 'Emperor Joker' to make her 'Darling D' Discord love her again made Cosmos this.
  • Domestic Abuse: Like Harley Quinn and the Joker, the relationship between Cosmos with Discord was full of abuse and manipulation from his end. This together with her seduction and corruption is portrayed as one of Discord's more abhorrent sins; and notably Discord does not even try to excuse his behaviour and was fully regretful and apologetic.
  • Dominatrix: While her comic canon dynamic with Discord was reversed, she retained her domineering personality from comic canon to basically anyone else who is not Discord, and is even explicitly compared to this. She much more openly flaunts and practically relishes in making those she has power over subservient to her and using them to serve/satiate her every desire until she's bored or there's nothing left of them. It is not known if she dresses like one, but she most certainly could.
  • Driven by Envy: Wants Discord all to herself and leads to her conflict with 'Princess' Eris and Ispita.
  • Entropy and Chaos Magic: Owing to being a Draconequu, she can wield Chaos powers at a lesser level than Discord, with similar power sets considering her transformed thanks to receiving a portion of Discord's own magic. This is not the only powers she wields, however.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Cosmos notably never manifest at any size smaller than Discord; her size varies ranging from only slightly bigger than Discord, to the size of mountain ranges and blotting out the sky at the height of her power. Even her default size is big enough to wrap around Canterlot Palace's central tower and hold her beloved Discord in one of her claws. This is attributed to be an expression of her domineering personality and hints at potential Giant heritage. She had outright admitted to Mentálne that she is a macrophile.
  • Evil Is Petty: Described as spiteful on top of being vain, cruel, selfish and generally horrible, due to being Driven by Envy.
  • Evil Makeover: If accounts are accurate, she was not originally a Draconequu; instead, she became one thanks to Discord's corruption. She has the exact same appearance as her canon MLP comics self, which gives off the vibe as mentioned below.
  • Evil Makes You Monstrous: Her transformation into an evil Draconequus is this, having a more reptilian theme to her appearance with bits of sinister mammalian traits as her canon MLP comics self. This includes crimson reptile eyes, dragons' teeth, a cobra's hood, lizard fins, green scales on her wings, all complementing said bat-like wings, gargoyle claws, bat-like ears, mountain-goat horns and dark crimson and blue fur all over her body. Interestingly, they grew less menacing and brightens when she calms down, but becomes darker and pronounced the madder, angrier and eviler she gets.
  • Evil Overlord: Tried to become this for her 'Darling D' Discord when he refused to go back to his evil ways, and managed to take it Up to Eleven.
  • Evil Plan: When she failed to return Discord to his old evil self, who she loved, she decided to 'fill it in' for him by taking his power and that of other powerful beings until she is strong enough to unravel reality and remake it in their image - all for her 'Darling D', of course.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Subverted in the Codexverse. Unlike in Comic canon, she's still second rate to Discord when it comes to evil, and it was Discord who seduced and corrupted her to evil in the first place. Also explicitly outclassed by her rival Ispita, who arranged for her sealing by the other gods during the 500-years-long 'War Against Chaos'. Played straight with 'Princess' Eris, whom she arranged to fall-out with Discord and thrown to another dimension out of jealousy and personal animosity, and it's speculated in-universe she'll crush Eris in a fair fight.
  • Expy: Given the author's intent to basically reverse her dynamic with Discord as it is portrayed in the comics canon, she is basically a Draconequu 'Harley Quinn' to Discord's 'Joker' instead of the other way around. Also essentially the answer to the question "What happens if Harley Quinn went 'Emperor Joker' out of love FOR the Joker?".
  • For the Evulz: Made it clear after the 'Cosmos Incident' that they should only pin Discord for corrupting her and the atrocities he incited her into committing. Everything else that Discord isn't remotely involved is her own doing. She did many of those horrible things because she wanted/liked doing them; impressing her darling Discord was merely one reason among many. Heck, Malice is part of her portfolio like in canon.
  • Fix Fic: Her entry is basically intended to be this for the villainous Cosmos of the MLP IDW comic canon, trying to actually make her likable and interesting while retaining her general characterization and threat she poised.
    • Her canon portrayal is depicted in-universe as part of a highly inaccurate adaptation of the 'Cosmos Incident', based on a piece of misinformation believed planted by the Changeling Summer Court to humiliate Discord, who is understandbly outraged at being depicted as little more than being a smaller, weaker, inferior and subservient toy to a bigger, meaner, crazier, more powerful and generally better Cosmos. That being said, Codexverse Cosmos thought it was Actually Pretty Funny.
  • The Hedonist: Thanks to Discord, she was this, and her domineering and possessive nature made her see everyone else except Discord as subservient pets or toys for her to take and use for her pleasure. One of the reasons she hooked up with Temnobog after her Heel–Face Turn was due to Temnobog having plenty of wicked, damned and demonic Asshole Victims in his realm for her to indulge depravities on together.
  • Heel Realization: Her defeat and Discord's apology led to a moment of lucidity in Cosmos, leading to her breaking down and accepting not only Discord had changed and can no longer love her as before, but also that Discord had done horrible things to her and she has become a monster. While she is still pretty evil and mad, she's no longer considered a Fallen deity.
  • It's All About Me: Described as selfish and egotistical, just like Discord was and still somewhat is, even after she stops being villainous. She wanted Discord all for herself and all the world for their amusement.
  • Just Eat Him: Admits openly to have vorephile tendencies as part of her domineering and possessive nature, having ate her old pantheon after her transformation, consumed several other pantheons of gods lost during the 'War Against Chaos', and devoured many lands/kingdoms full of mortals and living things after she got bored playing with them. This together with her tendency to manifest in huge forms fueled speculation that her pre-corrupted self had mortal or Divine Giant heritage.
  • Lack of Empathy: She lost whatever sense of empathy she once had due to her seduction and corruption by Discord, though an 'affectionate' side is starting to resurface in company of her therapist Mentálne, indicating that it's still there in some form.
  • Love Goddess: The most likely account of her Mysterious Past has her being a love goddess of a forgotten pantheon who tried to reach out and reform Discord. Unfortunately, she failed, as Discord saw through it and turned it around, seducing her instead and drove her crazy, evil, monstrous and hopelessly in love with him. There are evidence to suggest this as her portfolio covers Love and she retains some powers over it, albeit now twisted into an embodiment of obsessive and profaned love.
  • Love Hungry: Became this after getting over her obsessive love for Discord, which left a void in her which she desperately wants to fill, and is explicitly called a 'Love Addict'. This led her hooking up with Temnobog.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Discord seduced and corrupted her, resulting in her become obsessive, possessive maniac.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Her love for Discord and transformation into a Draconequu made her just as twisted and evil as Discord is.
  • Mad God: Her entries repeatedly reminds its readers that she is mad as a hatter on top of being evil. Though she is capable of moments of lucidity and is still less unreasonably insane then Queen Mab I, the one Chaos goddess who could legitimately be considered to be crazier than Discord.
  • Mad Love: Given her inspiration, she is madly in love with Discord and completely obsessed with him, to the point her entire rampage during the Cosmos Incident was basically motivated by her desire to get him back and get him to 'love her' again. Even after getting over it she still has feelings for him.
  • Manipulative Bastard: While not as good as Discord, she is noted to be able to 'play someone for a fool' to suit her own ends. She caused a falling-out between 'Princess' Eris and her cousin Discord that caused the former to be thrown into another dimension. Too bad she is still outclassed by Ispita, who arranged for her sealing, and apparently both events were arranged by Changeling Emperor Blackthorn, which deprived Discord two of his most capable allies/lieutenants/partners.
  • Mind Manipulation: Like her 'Darling D' Discord, is capable of a form (Maybe two) of Mind Control based on her domain over Obsession and Domination.
    • Where Discord could perform 'Discording' to his victims by turning them into opposites of their true self, Cosmos can perform a form of mind control on her victims known as 'Fixation' through her Obsession domain, making them hopelessly, delusionally obsessed with beings or things of her own choosing. Notably, she can enslave other beings this way by making them 'Fixated' on herself, making them obsessed with her and do her bidding.
    • Also, like in the comics, related her domain over Domination, she can turn a sufficiently mind-controlled victim into a puppet which she could control like an extension of her own body. It seems that when she's domineering, she doesn't do things half-way.
  • Minion Manipulated into Villainy: What Cosmos essentially is thanks to Discord. Unfortunately for everyone, Discord did the job far too well.
  • More Than Mind Control: Discord's seduction and corruption of Cosmos was this, and even he admitted it worked ''way'' too well. As a result Discord making her fall madly in love with him, she ended up willingly betrayed her old pantheon for him, allowed him to be changed into a Draconequus, went evil and committed many atrocities for and with him (and even on her own), and even after finally realizing and getting over her obsessive love, she still has feelings for him and can't bring herself to hate him (Though it helps Discord genuinely regrets this and apologized sincerely, which was what finally get her over it and end her rampage).
  • Mysterious Past: Surprisingly little is definitively known about her past before her seduction and corruption of Discord. Even she has no clue, given how warped she has become in mind as she is in form. There are many hints in her entry as to her past self's nature, but nothing is definitively confirmed.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: There are multiple contradictory accounts regarding her origins. She even paraphrased a version of Joker's famous line from Alan Moore's The Killing Joke as a Lampshade Hanging.
  • Narcissist: Like Discord and many other Fallen Deities, she is described as very vain.
  • Psychotic Manchild: Even after Heel–Face Turn, Cosmos remains egotistical, hedonistic and petulant like a child, just like Discord was and still is. The irony is not lost on Discord, who's now her minder on her probation.
  • Reality Warper: Like Discord, Cosmos can alter reality to her whims using Chaos magic. In contrast to her canon MLP comic portrayal, due to the reversed 'Harley Quinn-Joker' dynamic, here she is actually less powerful than Discord at baseline, being at around Ispita the Deceiver and Zkaza the Destroyer while dwarfing 'Princess' Eris.
    • Under the right circumstances, however, she can become even far more powerful than Discord like her canon MLP comic self. This is exhibited during the Codexverse 'Cosmos Incident', where she used one of her Obsession abilities to gain enough of a power-boost to overpower and steal Discord's powers to add to her own, and then that of several other powerful beings, all for her mad plan to take over Equus and remake it in her and darling Discord's image. It was noted in that moment she was one of the most powerful beings to ever exist on Equus and would had been able to cause enough damage to end civilization and even force The Old Gods to interfere had the heroes not been able to reverse it.
  • Really Gets Around: Implied, given her domineering nature to everyone else but Discord, being a corrupted Love Goddess and being Love Hungry after getting over her possessive love for Discord. She still sleeps with her minder Discord occasionally, and is implied to also have fun with Temnobog's grown Divine children with Ispita the Four Terrors in what entry describes as 'Hedonistic depravities'. Also mentioned to like having her way with the likes of the wicked, the damned and the demonic even after her Heel–Face Turn. It's telling that she is considered a rival to Ispita, who also Really Gets Around as an embodiment of Lust among other vices and very likely surpasses her on that front.
  • Reformed, but Not Tamed: Shaping up to be this, as it's note that while no longer antagonistic, she's still pretty evil and mad, and opinions are that she may simply be too corrupted and too far gone to be fully restored or turn a new leaf, though given she had only recently had a Heel–Face Turn, whether or not she could fully change remains to be seen.
    • Considering the Deities on the side of Harmony have members or at least allies that are either mad (Discord), evil (Temnobog) or selfish (Emperor Blackthorn), and Equus running on a Balance Between Good and Evil, even if she stays evil and mad that doesn't necessarily mean she wouldn't be considered 'reformed', so long as she can stay cordial with the good guys and reserve her depravity only on those who deserve it.
  • The Rival: Personally despised 'Princess' Eris and ultimately engineering a fall-out between her and her cousin Discord and getting banished to another dimension. Despite an initially flying start, both Cosmos and Ispita ultimately became this to each other for Discord's favour and affection. Ispita won the first round by getting Cosmos sealed; Cosmos eventually got a little back at her by dating and sleeping with Ispita's ex-boyfriend, Temnobog (And also befriending/sleeping with Ispita's children with Temnobog, the Four Terrors).
  • Sadist: Like Discord at his worst, she was a depraved psychopath who likes tormenting mortals and warping reality for her own twisted amusement, seeing them as little more than toys to play with. Still retains this trait after her Heel–Face Turn, owing to being Reformed, but Not Tamed, but only does this to those so irredeemable and monstrous no one will mind whatever she does to them, like her eventual love interest Temnobog does.
  • Sense Freak: Has shades of this even in her villainous days. Notably exasperated after letting go of her obsessive love for Discord and having no focus for her obsessive, possessive personality until she met Temnobog.
  • Space Master: Possess limited power over Space and related phenomena as part of her portfolio, which is surprising, and more surprisingly it isn't linked to her Chaos powers. This fueled speculation that she, or her old Pantheon, had 'Visitor' heritage or origins, whether divine or not.
  • Slave Mook: Can make other beings this by 'Fixating' them and making them delusionaly obsessed with her, putting them under her domination.
  • Take That!: Her entry was written in response to Cosmos of the MLP IDW comic series, which the Codexverse writers believes to be too bland and too much of a 'Villain Sue' with her intended portrayal as basically a crazier, meaner and more powerful version of Discord who is the dominant partner of their relationship.
  • To Create a Playground for Evil: Her main goal in her mad rampage during the 'Cosmos Incident': to gain enough power to finally overcome the forces of Harmony and remake the world in her and her beloved Discord's image, with everyone and everything becoming their playthings for all eternity. While Discord shared that villainous motivation with Cosmos in the past, the reformed and repentant Discord don't want to do that anymore.
  • Tragic Villain: Whatever her actual self was actually like, she ultimately become a psychotically evil maniac totally obsessed with Discord because Discord seduced and corrupted her. It was to the point that she is unable to return to her original form even with help because her mind is too far gone.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Was this with a villainous Discord, the Harley Quinn to Discord's Joker, though it is full of abuse and manipulation from Discord's end like that relationship. After getting over her obsessive love she eventually found a new partner with Temnobog, mutually bonding over their evil and depraved natures (And partly to spite Temnobog's own Ex-Girlfriend Ispita).
  • Villainous BSoD: Suffers one when defeated and Discord apologized to her for what he did to her, making her realize that Discord really had changed and can no longer love her like he used to. Leads to a Heel Realization.
  • World Gone Mad: Her vision of Equus and the universe was that of a chaotic playground where everyone, and everything, exist solely as playthings for her and her "Darling D".
  • World of Chaos: What she want to do to the world for herself and Discord in the 'Cosmos Incident', not caring until the end that Discord had a change of heart and didn't want to do that anymore.
  • Yandere: Her defining trait is being incredibly obsessive to the person she loves (Discord), and her possessiveness of Discord served as a major motivation of her villainy, to literally reality-shattering levels. Also embodies 'Obsessive Love' as part of her corrupted domain over Love.

"The abuse of strength can bring conflict. But with proper usage... they can bring peace."

  • White Hair, Black Heart: Averted. Despite having a white pelt and a white mane and tail, he is an incredibly compassionate Cyclops divine, being the god of Peace and Mercy. He represents the merciful half of the ancient Giant god Thrýlos, and would rather save innocent lives and resolve conflicts peacefully rather than pursue pure, harsh justice that Knight Templars like Poena favor.

    Princess Lampyridae/Firewing

Rank: Godling

"A lot of things can happen when one forgives, but we definitely didn't expect a baby god as one of those things!"
Princess Cadence, in regards to Lampyridae/Firewing's birth

Princess Lampyridae/Firewing is a divine oddity that was born after two major, bloody conflicts that was directly caused by the long-standing racial feud between Changelingkind and Dragonkind. After the Dr. Toxikon Crisis ended, Thorax and Ember decided to forgive each other's races for their heinous actions, having gotten so sick of the violence and hypocrisy behind the feud in general that they both decided that it was time to react with forgiveness and mercy rather than continue something that has both affected and killed millions of innocents. Shortly after that, a goddess was born in the form of an infant Dragon/Changeling hybrid.

Luminiferous hypothesized that Lampyridae/Firewing's birth was the result of the magical karmic backlash towards Thorax and Ember's actions. Because the Changeling-Dragon feud was so bloody, vicious, and enduring, Thorax and Ember rejecting it and genuinely forgiving their people created a massive rebound, spawning a hybrid deity that embodied Forgiveness and Making Amends. Needless to say, Lampyridae/Firewing's discovery both shocked and flustered Ember, especially when the infant regarded her and Thorax as her biological "parents".

Shortly after Lampyridae/Firewing's birth, both the Changeling Progenitors (as well as their demigod children) and the Dragon pantheon started having a "custody battle" upon her discovery, arguing over which domain she truly belonged to in hopes they would take possession of the infant goddess. It got so bad that Lampyridae/Firewing started crying loudly... and unleashed an "empathy wave" that caused both sides to see and experience the hurt they were inflicting on each other with their petty squabbles. Because of this, it was ultimately decided that the infant hybrid goddess would stay with Thorax and Ember as a tenuous joint member of both groups.

While some see Lampyridae/Firewing as an opportunity to finally bury the hatchet, others, especially more malicious individuals, see her as a prospective weapon. Nevertheless, as an infant goddess, she has lots of potential, and might play a very important role in the future.
  • Cheerful Child: Implied, as her entry describes her as a very cheerful and happy baby.
  • Children Are Innocent: Because she's the divine product of Thorax and Ember's act of forgiveness and mercy, she was born with no knowledge of what Changelingkind or Dragonkind has done in the past, and thus is incapable of holding a grudge towards either race (though some question if she is capable of holding grudges at all). After Lampyridae/Firewing started crying from the squabbles between the divine Changelings and Dragons over which domain she belonged to, Thorax and Ember proceeded to make it clear that their people's racial grudge is to stay far away from their "daughter".
  • The Empath: Implied to be her power. She started crying when both Changeling and Dragon deities started fighting over possession of her, and unleashed an empathy wave that caused both sides to experience the hurt they were causing each other, defusing the conflict.
  • Emotion Bomb: She has the power to unleash an "empathy wave", which causes those who have harmed others to feel the hurt and suffering they have inflicted, while their victims would feel their tormentors' repressed guilt. This emerged for the first time during a "custody battle" between Changelingkind and Dragonkind that was quickly turning violent.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She's a divine Dragon/Changeling hybrid. And because she's created from the magical karmic backlash of Thorax and Ember's heroic deeds, she's technically their biological daughter. Unfortunately, her mixed heritage actually threatened to revive hostilities between Changelingkind and Dragonkind again in the form of a "custody battle", with both the Changeling Progenitors and their Semi-Divine children arguing with the divine Dragons over which domain Lampyridae/Firewing truly belonged to. The conflict upset Lampyridae/Firewing so much that she unleashed an empathy wave on them, causing both sides to experience the hurt they were causing each other and defusing their hostilities.
  • Harmful to Minors: She was exposed to hostility for the first time when both Changeling and Dragon deities started fighting over her in a "custody battle", each seeking to adopt her in their respective domains. As a result, she started crying loudly, unleashing an "empathy wave" that defused the conflict and made both sides experience guilt over the hurt they were causing her and each other. Because of this, Thorax and Ember made it clear that the racial feud is to stay far away from the infant goddess.
  • Karmic Jackpot: She's the living embodiment of this. Luminiferous hypothesized that because the racial Changeling-Dragon grudge was so bloody, vicious, and enduring, Thorax and Ember's joint act of forgiveness towards the elders of each other's race caused a magical karmic backlash that created Lampyridae/Firewing. It's speculated, and even hoped, that Lampyridae/Firewing would help her biological "parents" in their efforts to finally stop the feud and bridge both Changelingkind and Dragonkind together.

    Upepo, the Wind Mother 

Divine Classification: Elemental/Ascendant

Portfolio: Wind, Kindness, Parental Deity (Giraffes)

Rank: Divine (Tier 4/Greater)

"Kindness knows no heights."

  • Adaptational Badass: In canon, she's Creamsicle, one of the G1 "Ponyfriends" of the First Age. Here, she became a powerful Giraffe goddess with ties to Mzazi, her best friend and a fellow divine.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Water, Kindness, and Giraffes.
  • Blow You Away: As the Giraffe goddess of Wind, she is capable of using wind magic. However, her take on it is that most of her attacks require movement - with a few sweeping, graceful movements such as spins and kicks, she can form tornadoes, gusts, and wind blades. One favored attack involves turning herself into a living spear by creating a sharp miniature tornado around her head, which can pierce through any foe she charges.
  • Elemental Hair: Her mane and tail were described by her entry as being made of miniature tornadoes, which fits her being the living embodiment of Wind.
  • The Empath: Described by her entry as being one. As an empath, she can create an aura that brings out the inner goodness of people and ebbs aggression, though she doesn't force it.
  • Gentle Giant: As a Giraffe goddess, she's very large, though not as tall as Queen Tiara, a Sauropodian goddess and one of her old friends who is the largest of the "Ponyfriends", or divine Dragons and Giants in general. She's also a very kind, if somewhat mischievous person who's willing to fight and protect those she cares about when necessary.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Due to being a Giraffe, she uses her own long neck like a sword. It's noted in her entry that her neck is in fact heavily muscled and more of a weapon than a weakness.
  • Magic Hair: After becoming a goddess, her mane and tail echoed the appearance of miniature tornadoes.
  • Nice Guy: As the Giraffe goddess of Kindness, she's very compassionate and empathetic... literally. She's a very perky and friendly sort, with a slight mischievous streak, as she often playfully uses her powers to suddenly appear to unwary passerby to startle them. She gets along with similarly compassionate deities like Belyolen, since he's a radiant stag with endless compassion, but she also treats Temnobog kindly despite his innate Evil, which Temnobog appreciates.
  • Pals with Jesus: Justified; she knew Queen Mzazi when she was the mortal Zebra, Zigzag, from the First Age. When Mzazi regained her memories and Ascended, she helped her friends Ascend as well, allowing the once-mortal Creamsicle to uplift mortal Giraffekind into sapience.
  • The Paragon: Justified; due to being an empath and the goddess of Kindness, she carries an aura around her that brings out the goodness of people and inspires them to do good things.
  • Perception Filter: She can use her wind magic to silence her own movements, which is useful since she's a large goddess.
  • Supernatural Floating Hair: Well, fur; because she embodies Wind, her fur is described as having a constant breeze blowing through it.
  • Sweet Tooth: Her entry notes that she has a notable sweet tooth, to the point where her mortal followers often gift her with sweets and cakes.

    King Baarish, Father of All Elephants 

Divine Classification: Elemental/Ascendant

Portfolio: Water, Knowledge, Parental Deity (Elephants)

Rank: Divine (Tier 4/Greater)

"An elephant never forgets. And that is good; a fine memory leads the way to knowledge, and happy remembrance waters well the flower that is life."

  • Animal Gender-Bender: His royal title and position as "King" of Elephantkind. In real life, female elephants serve as matriarchs of their herds while male elephants are solidarity.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Embodies Water, Knowledge, and Elephants.
  • Birds of a Feather: Platonic example; his great knowledge and memory, as well as his love for books, allowed him to befriend Princess Twilight Sparkle, who has similar hobbies and personality traits.
  • Elemental Hair: Fitting his divine domain of Water, his mane and tail is made of orange, perpetually looping water.
  • Gentle Giant: He's described as such in his entry. He often helps others smaller than him by using his trunk to retrieve out-of-reach things for them.
  • Honorable Elephant: He's a very benevolent, kind, and wise king of mortal Elephantkind, being responsible for uplifting his people into sapience. He's also a Gentle Giant who uses his large size and great trunk to help others, whether to retrieve out-of-reach things or protect them from enemies.
  • Making a Splash: As the Elephant god of Water, he's an extremely powerful and skilled water mage.
  • The Nose Knows: His sense of smell is described as being very acute, so naturally, incredibly strong and/or foul odors can hinder him. The fact that he was knocked out accidentally by Moufette's stenches means that he doesn't visit the Great Skunk pantheon as much as he would like, despite his love of Mephitidia's perfumes.
  • Pals with Jesus: Justified; he knew Queen Mzazi when she was the mortal Zebra, Zigzag, from the First Age. When Mzazi regained her memories and Ascended, she helped her friends Ascend as well, allowing the once-mortal Edgar to uplift mortal Elephantkind into sapience.

    The Void Sovereign 

  • Eldritch Abomination: Known as "The Void Sovereign", and is an impossibly ancient and alien being who has existed even before the Grand Primevals, his grandnephews and grandniece, were born. Unlike his sister, the Genesis Sovereign, he's also an Omnicidal Maniac bent on returning things to the Void - as in, destroying all signs of life and civilizations as we know it.
  • Evil Uncle: With the reveal that the Grand Primevals are the Genesis Sovereign's divine grandchildren, this would make him their biological great uncle. They're also utterly opposed to each other, as he desires all things to return to the Void while the Grand Primevals want to preserve life and protect all sapientkind from their great uncle.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: He's confirmed to be the ultimate villain in Codex Equus that everyone, both divine and mortal, must face if the planet Equus is to be saved from oblivion. Because he's currently sealed in the Cosmic Void, Queen Dazzleglow hopes that everyone can use the time to strengthen themselves magically, physically, and mentally until the day comes where he frees himself to resume what he started.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He's so powerful he could potentially destroy the entire galaxy if not defeated.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He was sealed away in the Cosmic Void, though Dazzleglow has little delusions about him staying there forever.

    The Genesis Sovereign 

  • Eldritch Abomination: She is one, being more ancient, powerful, and alien than even her grandchildren, the Grand Primevals. However, unlike her brother, she's completely benevolent, being dedicated to preserving and protecting Equus and all of its sapient residents from her brother.
