    Prayer Warriors 

Jerry of Christ

The main protagonist of most of the series, appearing as the main character of "The Evil Gods Part 1", "Threat of Satanic Commonism," and "The Evil Gods Part 2". He is eventually killed at the start of "Attack of the Sphinx".

  • Ape Shall Never Kill Ape: Killing a good christian man? That's a filthy sin! Now killing an atheist, muslim, homosexual, woman, democrat, or pagan on the other hand...
  • He-Man Woman Hater: When Mary says she'd like a daughter, he says he does not like girls, and wants strong Christian men.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His weapon of choice is a sword.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: He tries to break the demon-possessed Grover out, but is entirely willing to kill him if necessary, and ends up doing so,
  • Jerkass: A rather egregious example. He not only kills people who have different opinions other than his, he constantly belittles and mistreats women, beheading his own wife when she turns out to be pregnant and then having the nerve to forgive her when she comes back from the dead!
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: Dies at the start of "Attack of the Sphinx."
  • Villain Protagonist: Arguably qualifies as one.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Of all the Prayer Warriors, he most exemplifies this, and has quite possibly killed the most female charactersnote .

Mary

Jerry's girlfriend and soon, wife. She becomes pregnant, but is sentenced to death for committing adultery with Percy Jackson, as well as for treason. She inexplicably survives, but loses the child, and later helps Jerry kill "John Lennnon" in "Threat of Satanic Commonism.

  • Extreme Doormat: For the most part, she's a subservient and docile housewife, but see Out-of-Character Moment for an exception.
  • The Mole: Supposedly the traitor in the Prayer Warriors.
  • Not Quite Dead: Survives being stoned to death.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Midway through The Evil Gods Part 1, after deciding not to have the baby, Jerry assumes she's planning on aborting it and lectures her about how wrong it is. She then yells at him that she is not having an abortion and that he is merely making assumptions.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Cheated on Jerry with Percy and had a baby.

Michael of Christ

Percy's follower and close friend.

He becomes the main protagonist of "Battle with the Witches" when he infiltrates Hogwarts, helps out for part of "Threat of Satanic Commonism," and returns in "The Titans Strike Back."

  • Chekhov's Gunman: He is first introduced giving Jerry the news that Mary is the traitor, who had sex with Percy Jackson, before going off to infiltrate Hogwarts.
  • The Infiltration: Infiltrates Hogwarts to gain information on whether they're planning an attack on Christians.
  • Jerkass: The Prayer Warriors, by and large, are not nice people, but Michael is a good deal more unpleasant than most of them, as he can often be short-tempered and rude.
  • Useless Protagonist: The only key he recovers on his one is the one he fishes out of Ginny's pocket. His attempt to get her to give information fails, Ebony gets the other keys, and he doesn't find out about any attacks.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He executes Mary.

Ebony of Christ

A Christian who arrives to help Michael on his mission.

She returns in "Threat of Satanic Commonism," accompanying the group to Soviet Russia, and returns to the present to assist in "The Evil Gods Part 2", and "Attack of the Sphinx."

Jason

An amnesiac who becomes a Prayer Warrior.

  • Cruel Mercy: He decides not to kill one of Socrates' captured followers, and instead makes her his slave.
  • Hypocrite: Immediately after killing Socrates, he refuses to kill one of Socrates' followers, saying that murder is a sin.
  • Kill It with Fire: Puts napalm down Socrates' throat and burns him alive.
  • Quest for Identity: His goal.

Kelvin

A Prayer Warrior who is fighting in Boston.

Dexter

Kelvin's immediate superior. His young son is fighting elsewhere, and worrying about whether he's dead or alive has eroded Dexter's faith in god.

  • Almost Dead Guy: He's found fatally wounded, and asks his comrades to tell his son that he loves him.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: He's grown cynical as a result of worrying about his son, and refuses to believe that believing in God does any good.

William

Dexter's son, and a Prayer Warrior sent to deal with the Egyptian gods.

  • Harmless Freezing: Carter does this to him while capturing him.
  • One Steve Limit: It's pointed out that he's not the same person as Prince William from "The Titans Strike Back."

Sansa Stark

A Prayer Warrior who arrives to help Draco deal with Hogwarts.

  • Action Girl: In her debut, she's able to kill a Dementor.
  • Unexpected Character: Since the series hasn't crossed over into Westeros yet, it's a bit surprising to see her show up to help out at Hogwarts.

     Camp Half-Blood Residents 

Grover

Percy's best friend. He was initially a Satanist, but converted and found Jesus at some point after Percy did, becoming a Prayer Warrior in "Threat of Satanic Commonism" and subsequent installments.

He currently has the most deaths of any character, having been killed nine times at this writingnote 

  • Bestiality Is Depraved: He implies to engaging in bestiality in the past.
  • Boom, Headshot!: His death in "Attack of the Sphinx", and how he kills Benry in "Threat of Satanic Commonism."
  • Butt-Monkey: He keeps getting killed in various painful and gruesome manners.
  • Death Is Cheap: Fulfills this trope more than any other character.
  • Demonic Possession: Twice. The first time happens near the end of "Threat of Satanic Commonism" and Jerry is forced to kill him. The second time is at the beginning of "The Evil Gods Part 2", and he drowns in a failed attempt at an exorcism.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Most of his deaths qualify, but most of all, his third death in Evil Gods Part II. During the infiltration of the Taj Mahal, it's casually mentioned that he got killed by an arrow, and the Prayer Warriors move on as if nothing happened.
  • Horned Humanoid: As a sign of him being Satanic, until he removes the horns in "Threat of Satanic Commonism."
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Prior to his conversion. It's possible that he killed Chiron off-screen, but it seems somewhat unlikely given he can't do much more than make empty threats.
  • His Name Is...: Is killed in "Attack of the Sphinx" when he's about to tell the others the name of the Egyptian god he's found.
  • Mauve Shirt: When the author needs to have a Prayer Warrior get killed by the enemy, Grover's usually tapped for this role.
  • Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: Inverted; he becomes a Prayer Warrior for no apparent reason in "Threat of Satanic Commonism."
  • They Killed Kenny Again: He has died at least nine times.

Clarisse LaRue

Head of a rational study group, whom Jerry and his Prayer Warriors kill.

In "Threat of Satanic Commonism" she not only returns from the dead, but joins the Prayer Warriors.

  • Bolivian Army Ending: In the start of "Threat of Satanic Commonism" she holds her own against a group of Communists, but is seemingly overwhelmed and killed. She later turns out to have survived.
  • Off with Her Head!: Suffers this fate in her first death.
  • Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: Inverted; she becomes a Prayer Warrior for no apparent reason in "Threat of Satanic Commonism."

Annabeth

Supposedly "Zeus most famous whore"; she is encountered and killed early on in "The Evil Gods Part 1."

In "Threat of Satanic Commonism" she not only returns from the dead, but joins the Prayer Warriors, and fights alongside them there and in "The Evil Gods Part 2."

Percy Jackson/Judas/Of Christ

The son of Zeus and initially one of the main enemies of the Prayer Warriors. When he's about to kill Jerry, he gets an epiphany and converts.

He goes back in time to help fight the communists in "Threat of Satanic Commonism," and returns to the present for "The Evil Gods Part 2." Near the end of the latter story, Jupiter kills him, apparently once and for all.

  • A Taste of the Lash: Whips himself over his sins after converting.
  • Deuteragonist: Can be considered this for "The Evil Gods Part 1", since he's the first character besides Jerry to get a POV chapter, he's the initial antagonist, and he joins the Prayer Warriors.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Is this in "The Evil Gods Part 1".
  • I Have No Son!: Inverted; he declares that Zeus is not his father before killing him, so that he can avoid committing the sin of Patricide.
  • Killed Off for Real: Apparently, by Jupiter.
  • Meaningful Rename: Changes his last name to "Judas" as a mark of Satanism. He then changes it to "Of Christ" when he converts.
  • Self-Made Orphan/Patricide: Does this to Zeus, even though Poseidon is canonically his father. Interestingly enough, he also kills Poseidon later that chapter, and the chapter would read practically the same way with their names switched around.

Ethan Nakamura

A supposed convert to Christianity who promises to give up listening to non-Christian bands. It supposedly is a lie, and he is thought to be the traitor Jerry was warned about.

  • Fake Defector: Revealed to be this, prompting Jerry to conclude that "Once a Satanist, always a Satanist".
  • The Mole: Implied to be this, although it's later claimed that Mary is the traitor.

Thalia

The daughter of Zeus, who tries to convert but gets killed by Jerry, who doesn't trust her.

She is brought back in "The Evil Gods Part 2", and is retconned into being a Prayer Warrior all along.

  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Killed on the mere chance that she's lying.
  • In the Back: How she kills Zeus in the retconned raid on the Temple of Zeus.
  • Morton's Fork: If she's lying about repenting, she deserves to die. If she's telling the truth, she'll go to Heaven, and her death isn't a bad thing. And if she doesn't convert, she'll get killed with everyone else.
  • Retcon: In the version of the raid on the Temple of Zeus in the flashback from "The Evil Gods Part 2", she's present and helps Percy kill Zeus.

Rachel

An old friend of Percy's, whom he dated on and off in the past. She is the first person he converts to the Prayer Warriors.

Tyson

One of Percy's friends, who refuses to convert and is killed.

  • Cain and Abel: He and Percy would qualify, but he's not Percy's half-brother here. It's unclear whether this is because Poseidon is not Percy's father in this fic, or because the author didn't bother with this detail.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Percy stones him to death.
  • Evil Feels Good: He refuses to convert because he loves to sin too much.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Immediately after he's introduced, Percy kills him for refusing to convert, and he's only mentioned in passing on one occasion later on.

Chiron of Christ

Percy's old teacher, and a "master of betrayal". After being converted, he goes to Camp Half-Blood to convert the others, but is killed.

Despite this, he returns in "The Evil Gods Part 2".

Luke

A Prayer Warrior whom Percy recruits after joining, possibly unaware that in canon, he is the traitor in Camp Half-Blood and the host of Kronos.

  • Pair the Spares: Ends up with Rachel for no apparent reason.
  • Tritagonist: The third POV character.
  • Red Herring: He's briefly brought up as a suspect for being the traitor in "The Evil Gods Part II," but is quickly ruled out. If they only knew...

    Greek Gods 

Zeus

A Greek god who is said to be Percy's father in this fic. He is killed when Percy's group raids his temple.

Artemis

One of the Greek gods and the first victim of the Prayer Warriors' offensive, as Jerry's group kills her.

  • Dead Guy on Display: Her head is put on display to show everyone that she's not a god.
  • Defiant to the End: Even while blinded, she declares her desire to defeat Jerry, as well as her belief that she can.
  • Eye Scream: Is stabbed in her eyes before she is finished off.

Venus

Another Greek God, who's killed by Jerry's group.

Poseidon

Percy's canonical father, but here, he's just another Greek God for him and his group to kill, as they do immediately after killing Zeus.

  • Killed Offscreen: The entire raid on the Temple of Poseidon happens off-screen.

Mars and Ares

Two Greek gods. Luke kills them both with the help of his group.

Hades

The Protector of Hell and Satan's "most elite servant"

  • Badass Boast
    Hades: "Fools of want to play fools game. You will never be able to defeat me. No one can beat me, not even God and his eternal begotten son Jesus Christ. They all fear me, and there is no way even a Christian can defeat me. No sword can stab me, because any stabs to me is creates no harm at all! And I am a master in sword fighting, greater than anything. I am the greatest of all the false gods of the Greek. There is no way on earth that you can beat me!"
  • Big Bad: Is "the most satanic of the gods" and the Final Boss.
  • Blasphemous Boast: Claims that not even God and Jesus can defeat him.
  • The Dragon: To Zeus, and arguably, Satan himself.
  • Dragon Their Feet: The final opponent of this fic, but not necessarily the highest ranked.
  • The Dreaded: Claims that everyone fears him.
  • Everyone Hates Hades: As the trope page indicates, portraying Hades as evil is nothing new, but he rarely looks or acts this demonic. Also, notably, he is on the same side as the other gods (and actually leading them), unlike the usual situation where they are the "good guys".
  • Final Boss: The final opponent in "The Evil Gods Part 1"
  • Informed Ability: Everything he mentions in his Badass Boast, including being more powerful than God or Jesus, a Master Swordsman, immune to conventional weapons, and undefeatable.
  • Master Swordsman: Mentions this in passing but doesn't demonstrate it.
  • Wreathed in Flames: Has "burning red skin" and black flames on his hands.
  • Zero-Effort Boss: The Prayer warriors kill him by praying.

     Hogwarts Residents And Other Wizards 

Ginny

A witch at Hogwarts and Ron's sister. Michael tries to get close to her for more information on Dumbledore, but she's killed before his search brings fruit. After she dies, it turns out that she has one of the keys to Dumbledore's office.

She returns to life in "The Titans Strike Back," and is convinced to join the Prayer Warriors.

Dumbledore

Headmaster of Hogwarts, and apparently conspiring with the British government to plan an attack on Christians.

His office is guarded with five locks, with four of his students (Ginny, Harry, Ron and Hermione) having keys.

Hagrid

A Hogwarts teacher who is secretly a follower of Christ.

  • Leeroy Jenkins: He charges ahead on Wawa's ship in "The Titans Strike Back" and is nearly killed.
  • The Mole: He's a 'secret Christian" inside Hogwarts, but later turns out to be a traitor to the Prayer Warriors.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: The secret Christians initially don't trust him because he was a teacher.
  • Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: When he appears in The Titans Strike Back, he claims that he was Evil All Along as he summons police to arrest Draco and Sansa.

Draco

A "secret Christian" at Hogwarts. He apparently was once in a relationship with Ginny. He marries Ebony, then marries Hermione, then marries Ginny, without getting a divorce at any point.

Harry Potter

A student at Hogwarts who has one of the keys to Dumbledore's office.

He returns to life in "The Titans Strike Back," but is still an enemy.

  • Back from the Dead: With the rest of Hogwarts in "The Titans Strike Back"
  • Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: An odd example, but the Prayer Warriors decide to have him use magic to burn Dumbledore's body, since he's going to Hell anyway (It's unclear why they don't burn it with conventional means). Inexplicably, Harry complies.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Ginny notes that he has sex with both her and Ron, and it turns out he has sex with Dumbledore.
  • The Dragon: Apparently, Dumbledore entrusts him with missions against Christians.
  • Dragon Their Feet: Interestingly enough, he has already been killed by the time Dumbledore meets his end, but he's still the Prayer Warriors' final opponent in this installment.
  • Due to the Dead: He gets a funeral, but the Prayer Warriors plan on exhuming his body and mutilating it.
  • Famed In-Story: Supposedly he's also known as "The Boy Who Lived" here, but it's claimed that it's a lie.
  • Smite Me, O Mighty Smiter!/Tempting Fate: How he meets his end in his fight with Michael; he asks him to prove that his god is real by having him strike him dead. God obliges.

Ron Weakling

Another Hogwarts student and Harry Potter's gay lover. He also has a key to Dumbledore's office.

Voldemort

An enemy of Dumbledore's who doesn't want the Prayer Warriors to kill Dumbledore, or else he will lose what he has to fight for.

Idiot and Benjamin

Two "false Christians" whom Hagrid caught.

Hermione

A student at Hogwarts who holds the fourth key to Dumbledore's office. She surrenders it to Hermione and converts.

  • High-Heel–Face Turn: The only Hogwarts student who switches to the Prayer Warriors' side in "Battle with the Witches."
  • Redemption Earns Life: Even if Michael doesn't trust her, by converting, she managed to avoid being killed.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: Michael distrusts her, and only converts her because Ebony vouched for her character.

    "Commonist" Russia 

John Lennon

Despite what his name would indicate, he's not one of The Beatles. He's the leader of the Communists in Russia. In exchange for Jesus' help in breaking some of their members out of prison, the Prayer Warriors must go back in time and kill him, and they are successful in doing so.

Benry

This character appears twice. The first time, he's portrayed as a man who's pretending to be Jesus Christ. The second one is a drug dealer who sells to Rika and Books, and who is killed by Grover in an attempt to enforce US law and deal with the Prayer Warriors' enemies in Stalin Town.

  • Boom, Headshot!: The second one dies from a headshot from Grover.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The first Benry suffers one, since he makes a token effort to fight back, but is easily defeated and killed. The second time can't even be called a battle, since Grover snipes him.

Idiosy

One of Stalin's henchmen. Rachel infiltrates his mansion and kills him.

Rika

One of Stalin's henchmen, who faces Jerry in single combat during the confrontation between the Prayer Warriors and Stalin's army. Also known as Arcadiarika.

Books

Another of Stalin's henchmen, who faces Jerry in single combat after Rika dies. Also known as BookObsesserNumberOne

Stalin

He takes over the communists after John Lennon's death, and leads them on an attack against the Prayer Warriors and Christians. After that fails, he ends up in debt, so he decides to make all religions legal. The Prayer Warriors don't like that, and kill him.

    Roman Gods 

Socrates

A Roman god whom Ebony captures. He's killed after the raid on the abortion clinic.

  • A God Am I: He proclaims that they will not be able to defeat him, because he's a god. Jason puts the lie to this by putting napalm down his throat, saying that if he were a god, he wouldn't suffer pain or die.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Burned alive by having napalm shoved down his throat.
  • Man on Fire: How he meets his end.

Euripides

A Roman god who tried to attack the camp. He's executed by hanging as a result.

Jupiter

The leader of the Roman gods.

  • Arc Villain: Of "The Evil Gods Part 2"
  • Bad Boss: He apparently manipulates his fellow Roman Gods, one of whom sells him out in her dying moments, partly out of a fruitless hope for redemption.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Tortures Annabeth and Grover to death.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Largely so that the author could stick it to his brother, who came out as bi.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: On the receiving end of it, considering that his fellow Roman Gods apparently don't care for him.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Things become fairly dark when he appears, as the Prayer Warriors, who generally curb stomp all their foes, never walk away from any encounter with him without at least a few casualties.
  • Not Quite Dead: At the end of this fic, he kills Percy and escapes.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He uses child slaves in apparently inhumane conditions.

Unnamed Roman Goddess

An unknown Roman goddess who's mortally wounded in the battle at Camp Half-Roman.

     Titans 

Wawa

The Titan of Water. He's tracked down on a ship and killed.

  • Death by Irony: The author seems to have been aiming for this by having the Prayer Warriors dump his body in the sea, but by all indications, he was dead at the time.
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: He taunts the heroes, saying that even if he's killed, the Prayer Warriors cannot stop the plan the villains have set in motion.

Lola

Titan of Wind, the Prayer Warriors face her in the Tower of London. Draco kills her by sucking her up with a magical vacuum cleaner.

  • Blow You Away: Her wind powers work differently than most in that they serve to distract people from prayer while protecting her from conventional attacks.
  • No-Sell: Her abilities cut off prayer, making it that much harder for the Prayer Warriors to kill her. Draco does somehow manage to pray and transform his weapon into something that can kill her, though.

Rocco

Titan of Earth, who has so far not appeared.

Pyro

Titan of Fire, who has so far not appeared.

Fifth Titan

The last titan, whose name and other details about him have not been revealed.

     Egyptian Gods And Their Followers 

Carter

A servant of the Egyptian Gods who is convinced to join the Prayer Warriors.

Horus

One of the Egyptian gods.

Zia Rashid

A servant of the Egyptian gods.

Anubis

The second Egyptian god to be defeated.

     Other Characters 

Jesus Christ

The son of God, in whose name the Prayer Warriors fight. He often appears in the authors' notes to support the author's point of views, and sometimes appears in the story as a character.

Satan

The devil himself, and the evil the Prayer Warriors fight against.

St. George

A demonic false saint who is trying to enslave the people of Ireland.

  • Filler Villain: He's hardly relevant at all to the plot or the battle against the Titans, even after "The Titans Strike Back is sidetracked onto dealing with the resurrected Hogwarts."

     The Prayer Ponies 

A list of characters from Spin-Off "The Prayer Ponies."

Charity Sue

The main protagonist, a pony who tries to introduce the others to Christ.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Is ostracized for being a Christian. That doesn't last, since she starts converting others to her ways.

Twilight Sparkle

One of Princess Celestia's students, and the first pony Charity Sue converts to Christianity.

  • Hero-Worshipper: Of Princess Celestia.
  • The Watson: She has no knowledge about Christianity, not even the misconceptions that her fellow ponies have, and so Charity Sue has to educate her.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Briefly has this with Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie and Spike as a result of converting to Christianity, until they convert, too.

Princess/Queen Celestia

Ruler of Equestria, and the main antagonist of The Prayer Ponies.

Applejack

Rainbow Dash's girlfriend. She is initially completely unwilling to convert and opposes the ponies, but later joins them.

  • Distressed Damsel: Has been kidnapped by Celestia.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In a sense. She doesn't convert to the Prayer Warriors, but agrees to be tolerant of Christians.

Rainbow Dash

Applejack's boyfriend. Like Applejack, he later joins the Prayer Ponies.

  • Gender Flip: Dash is a girl in canon, but a boy here for no apparent reason, apart from being in a relationship with Applejack.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Like Applejack, he remains an atheist, but decides to tolerate Christians.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Says that he can do whatever he wants, because he has Princess Celestia on his side.

Pinkie Pie

A pony who initially rejects an offer to convert, but soon comes around.

  • Bad Dreams: The reason for her conversion.
  • Dull Surprise: Her "hyperactive" greeting.
    Pinkie Pie: Hullo. Who is this?

Spike

A fairly short-tempered dragon who is initially angry about Twilight's conversion to Christianity, but soon joins the Prayer Ponies.

  • Bolt of Divine Retribution: One strikes him and forces him to convert.
  • Commander Contrarian: While climbing K2 with Fluttershy, he alternates between advocating caution and suggesting that Fluttershy just give up. She's willing to listen to the former, but refuses to consider the latter.
  • Breath Weapon: Breathes fire that, thanks to Jesus' protection, does not damage Twilight's house.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Even after converting, he loses his temper fairly easily.

Fluttershy

An introverted and anti-social pony.

  • Bad Dreams: Has a few, such as Spike dying on the climb.
  • Climbing the Cliffs of Insanity: Climbs K2 in order to prove herself.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Spike, while asking whether she's sure about wanting to climb K2, makes sure to be careful about what he says, since she gets angry for no reason at all.
  • Jerkass: Prior to conversion, which is especially jarring considering her canon characterization.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Twilight Sparkle apologizes for her behavior, almost referring to this trope byb name while doing so.
    Twilight: "Sorry about that, she will come around when she realized that she is being antisocial – ponies like her are like that sometime since they refuse to conform to society."
