  • My name is Arya Stark. I want you to know that the last thing you're ever going to see is a Stark smiling down at you as you die. With these words - and with Walder Frey bleeding out from a slit throat - Arya Stark has earned her spot in the Pantheon... and avenged the deaths of her brother, mother and sister-in-law.
  • The youngest daughter of Eddard and Catelyn Stark, Arya grew up in Winterfell alongside her family. While Sansa was the proper lady, Arya was the tomboy, and giving Mama Stark more gray hairs due to her love of swordplay, horse riding and anything that doesn't involve her being a proper lady. Then, her life forever changed when she and her sister accompanied Ned Stark to King's Landing. In the ensuing War of Five Kings, most of her family was slain, with Arya herself witnessing her father's murder (not execution) and her elder brother's desecrated corpse during the Red Wedding, in which her mother and sister-in-law were also slain. This set Arya on a path of vengeance.
  • Melisandre became aware of Arya's ascension via her flames. She remembers the prophecy that she had told the fugitive Stark whilst in the Riverlands: "I see a darkness in you. And in that darkness, eyes staring back at me. Brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes. Eyes you'll shut forever." And since she sold Gendry off to the Brotherhood, Melisandre is on Arya's list.
  • Upon hearing of Arya's ascension into the Pantheon, Ned, Cat and Jon were the first to greet their missing daughter. Many, many tears were shed as Arya was united with her parents and Jon, now revealed to be not her half-brother, but her cousin, the son of her aunt, Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. In a suprising gesture, Ned and Cat both complimented Arya on getting revenge on Walder Frey and his sons for the Red Wedding. For Cat, Arya suspected that it was Stoneheart talking, but appreciates the praise.
    • Speaking of Lyanna and Rhaegar, Arya finally met her aunt and the guy who according to Robert Baratheon, kidnapped her. Much to Cat's chagrin, Arya and Lyanna both get along quite well, mainly because they both share the same interests. After learning about how she went willingly with Rhaegar, Arya realizes that Robert acted like a total dick. Granted that Aerys kickstarted the rebellion and demanded that both Robert and her dad come to King's Landing, but still...
    • Through her uncle Rhaegar, Arya has formed a bond with Daenerys Targaryen, due to their shared hatred for most of the Lannisters (mainly Cersei and Tywin), while she considers Tyrion to be the decent one. Jamie, she's of conflicting opinions
  • With Arya assassinating Walder Frey and his two elder sons, the stage is set for chaos in the Riverlands. While the Frey owe their loyalty to the Lannisters, Queen Cersei will certainly be of no help due nuking the Great Sept. Arya has, however, gotten the attention of the deified Cleric of Chaos, Havik. He likes how she has set the stage for all hell to break loose in the Riverlands, and seeks to make her his disciple...if he can get past her parents and Jon.
  • During her time with the Faceless Men, Arya learned how to fight without her sight. While she is good at it, she pales in comparison to Kenshi Takahashi and Zatoichi, who had become her de facto mentors in the blindness department. Given as to how Arya had butchered
  • There seems to be plenty of mistaken identities going around in regards to the Westerosi-born deities and her family is no exception. She (along with her mom and Cersei) mistook Odysseus as her dad due to the both of them looking alike, Jack Bauer almost got into a fight with Ned Stark because the former thought her mom was a terrorist, while Harry Potter thought that she was Mama Granger. And now, Arya herself completes the trifecta, as The Doctor thought that she was Ashildr, a Viking puppetmaker and storyteller. Despite the mix-up, both Arya and the Doctor are good friends.
  • Upon discovering that Arya Stark was in the same House as her, Cersei pretty much shit a brick. Not even when she thought that Jaime Moriarty was Margaery Tyrell has the Mad Queen been scared shitless.
  • Tywin Lannister's first thought of hearing of Arya's ascension was something along the lines of "Whoopty-fucking-shit." Then he found out that the cup-bearer that he found in Harrenhal was in fact Ned Stark's daughter, thus making Arya the second Stark to fool him, her father being the first in keeping Lyanna's secret. Interestingly enough, Arya is immune to Tywin's evil eye, which is known to make even Cersei bow to his will.
    • Even more interesting is that Tywin Lannister laughed upon finding out that the cup-bearer is now in the employ of his youngest son. He anticipates the day in which he and Arya will settle old scores and pay one's debts. Arya, for her part, realizes that while her family was not entirely blameless in this whole mess, Tywin is needed to stabilize the realm (and to keep Cersei in check).
    • Another reality is that Arya is betrothed to the trueborn son of Robert and Cersei. Tywin himself has taken it upon himself to mentor Arya in the game of thrones following Littlefinger exposing her identity.
  • Given all that she has been through, Arya was not suprised to see Death at her doorstep. Like Havik, Death seeks to recruit Arya to its ranks. "Not today," Arya replies, invoking the words of Syrio Forel, her late 'dancing master.' "Not today."
  • Aside from Havik, Arya has been scouted by Ezio Auditore, due to her assassinating Walder Frey and his sons. Arya is more drawn to Ezio, due to the fact that he too, lost his family to treachery. In order to survive in the Pantheon, Arya is considering Ezio's offer to become his student, much to the chagrin of her parents.
    Jaqen H'gar: Finally, a girl is No One.
    Arya: A girl is Arya Stark of Winterfell. And I'm going home.

    Otani Yoshitsugu 
Otani Yoshitsugu, God of Misery (Gyobu, Swamp Butterfly, Sky Watcher)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/otani_2.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Otani crest
  • Theme Song: As heard here.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Mystic Strategists, Feigned Courtesy, Severe Leprosy, Floating Attack Beads, Darkness, Corruptive Friendship, A Desire to Spread Misery, Never Speaking the Truth.
  • Domains: Strategy, Misery, Suffering, Warfare.
  • Allies: Ishida Mitsunari, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Palpatine.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Mori Motonari, Oda Nobunaga.
  • Enemies: Tokugawa Ieyasu, Honda Tadakatsu, Cosmos, Yotsuba Koiwia, Monkey D Luffy.
  • The first to greet Yoshitsugu upon his arrival was none other than Mitsunari, who simply commanded they return to business as usual. To his own part, Yoshitsugu simply smiled and followed behind.
  • Received his title for the fact that he welcomes great and terrible misery onto himself as he does all others, willing to burn alongside the world. ...except Mitsunari.
  • Has proven unaffected by The Stare, citing his ability to look Oichi in the eyes considering her state. However, he is very vulnerable against Ghost Rider's Penance Stare, so Yoshitsugu usually avoids him.
  • There is a debate between the Houses of Magic and Technology over the nature of his palanquin. Considering the likes of Tadakatsu, whether there is circuitry or not behind the wood has been a hot button. Yoshitsugu has remained tight lipped on the subject.
  • When he discovered that Motonari resided in the House of War, a great deal of scheming began. It is very much like a chess match between the two, and almost all of the pawns were ready and waiting on their board.
  • While Eren Yeager is hostile to everyone within the house, Yoshitsugu has been very polite to the young boy and striking up conversations. Eavesdroppers have noted that when Eren humors Gyobu, the conversation often bleeds into the Titans or his mother from his home world. Many realize that Yoshitsugu is intentionally stoking Eren's anger to one end or another, likely intending to turn him into something of an attack dog similar to Mitsunari.
  • Yoshitsugu was just about the only deity that didn't have information about Fortinbras. A lot of Toyotomi loyalists feared that with attitude like his, he'd end up making a deal with Fortinbras to bring further suffering to the world and he looks like he's just about to do so. But in the last moments, Yoshitsugu sent as many deadly orbs as possible right on Fortinbras' face, saying that he doesn't need such deals for his own brand of misery, and when asked if he was just fearing Hideyoshi's ultimatum, Yoshitsugu denied, he was already planning to refuse before the order was given, he just feels like toying the others and Fortinbras around.
  • "Those above and those below have all become one with my pain. The whole world shall wallow in Misery!" - The Book of Toyotomi 7:23
  • However, he's met his other Koei-portrayal a la Samurai Warriors. The two however, have had some exchanges; saihai-wielding Yoshitsugu understands the telekinetic-Yoshitsugu's pain and need to inflict as much of it as possible, but he points out that he too would never harm Mitsunari due to his friendship with him being as strong as his. Telekinetic-Yoshitsugu is baffled, while saihai-Yoshitsugu sees right through him. Telekinetic-Yoshitsugu is also annoyed at the saihai-wielder's fit movements, but he feels as though he's hiding his illness a lot more cleverly; needless to say, he's ready for the day to strike at that saihai-wielder's weakpoint.
    • One of the first starting weakpoints for him was to strike at the fan-wielding Mitsunari. However, Yoshitsugu feels rather odd whenever he tries to do anything to him, but is nonetheless a lot angrier that he's less likely to give into his hate compared to the katana-Mitsunari he knows. The folding fan-Mitsunari states he feels Yoshitsugu in reality is never that kind of person, and the saihai-wielding Yoshitsugu outright threatens the telekinetic-Gyobu to back off, or else. Koei-Yoshitsugu has also at times nearly convinced Capcom-Yoshitsugu that he is a ghost and he's here to haunt him; the latter portrayal was not pleased.
