    The Brothers 

The Brother Gods, Light and Void

Appearances: The Road to Atlas, Cold

A pair of gods in the multiverse.


  • Adaptational Villainy: They both understood the importance of keeping the balance of life and death in canon. Here, they were destroying universes to gain power for themselves and kill the other gods.
  • Ax-Crazy: Void may have been more open about it since he is a god of destruction, but Light still hides it under his calm demeanor. However, he does go crazy and destroy everyone in Remnant in a fit of rage.
  • God and Satan Are Both Jerks: They were a pair of genocidal entities who tried to destroy humanity in other universes.
  • Named by the Adaptation: They didn't have actual names on the show.
  • Serial Killers: Jinn compared them to this. They systematically wiped out universes. Even she says that she has trouble knowing who many they destroyed.
  • The Sociopaths: They both decided to destroy universes to kill the other gods and attain power for themselves. Light manipulated Void to join his plan, but Void showed no remorse over it either.


  • And I Must Scream: He is trapped in his own mind and his actions are now not his own. His malevolent personality can do nothing but watch helplessly.
  • Heel–Face Brainwashing: How one can interpret his punishment. His malevolent personality is still there, but he has been trapped behind a more benevolent being. His actions are not his own and he can only watch.
  • Light Is Not Good: Literally, before his Heel–Face Brainwashing. He was just as malevolent as his brother. In fact, possibly even more so since he manipulated him into destroying other universes for power. Despite him having the powers of creation, he was not using them for creating life. Instead, he had his brother join him to destroy universes and gain power for himself.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He played on Void's insecurities on not being able to create life and used that to make him assist in destroying universes and other gods to gain power.
  • The Usurper: He planned to overthrow Spectrum.


  • Cessation of Existence: Void is disintegrated when Ruby unleashes the full power of her Silver Eyes on him.
  • Dark Is Evil: He's a god of darkness and destruction and helped his brother destroy universes for the power of creation.
  • Final Boss: Fittingly, he's the ultimate villain in the series and the last one fought.
  • The Ghost: He wasn't even mentioned until halfway through the series, and only finally showed up eighteen stories into the series. Until The Road to Atlas, he was basically unseen.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Qrow says that he's the one that sent Salem to destroy humanity.
  • I Lied: Salem was promised godhood, but once he is released, he says he doesn't need her anymore and strips her of her powers.
  • The Resenter: He detested the other gods including his brother since they were successfully able to create universes.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He’s trapped somewhere at Atlas as punishment for aiding in the destruction of countless universes. He promised Salem Godhood if she releases him.
  • Unrealistic Black Hole: After stripping Salem of her powers and absorbing all the Grimm in Remnant, Void creates a black hole that threatens to destroy all of Remnant.



Appearances: The Road to Atlas

The creator of humanity in Remnant and most powerful god of the multiverse.


  • Good Is Not Nice: He does not hesitate to punish the brothers when they decide to break the terms of their punishment.
  • Greater-Scope Paragon: Moreso than Light since he was the one to make Light benevolent.
  • Light Is Good: He's based on the colors of the spectrum and is the most benevolent being involved in the story.
  • Meaningful Name: He is based on the spectrum of colors and he's the reason people are named after colors.
  • Top God: He is the highest god in the multiverse.





Appearances: The Road to Atlas, Cold

The woman in the Relic of Knowledge.


  • Adaptational Skimpiness: Her statue in front of the vault. The depiction of her is fully naked rather than wrapped in robes.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Downplayed. While she is rather casual in how she speaks in canon, she's incredibly irreverent due to the fact that she has slept with any female that knew she existed.
  • Gainaxing: Her breasts jiggle just as soon as she moves away from Blake after the latter asks her question. Something Jeckyde points out, earning him a Dope Slap from his brother on Qrow's orders.
  • Hidden Depths: While she is a sex-fiend who doesn't bother to hide it and can be rather casual with others, she still takes her job seriously and is shown to care about Blake's distress. She also expresses sadness for the victims of Light and Void.
  • Hotter and Sexier: Instead of Barbie Doll Anatomy, she has genitals, pubic hair, and nipples. She's also a Shameless Fanservice Girl as opposed to the more Innocent Fanservice Girl role she has in canon. (She just happens to be naked in canon and isn't really trying to show it off as far as we know.)
  • Lipstick Lesbian: If her canon counterpart is anything to go by, she is rather feminine in appearance. Now, she also happens to have an affinity for bedding women.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Not as perverted as someone like Yang, but she definitely enjoys her several sexual encounters.
  • Ms. Exposition: This is basically her role since she is the Relic of Knowledge.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Even more than in canon since she has actual nipples and genitalia and has slept with just about every single woman who knows she exists.
  • Pity Sex: Gave this to Winter after her divorce.
  • Really Gets Around: She has slept with every woman that knows about her.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: She's always naked and she has had sex with just about every single woman who knows she exists. And she will not hesitate to talk about it, much to the embarrassment of those who would like to keep that information private.
