Overdeities

    Death (Final Destination
Death, God of Absurdly Coincidental Deaths (Mr. Dead)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/death_2.jpg
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: Metal bars driven through a skull (Final Destination 5 poster), or simply a dark shadow
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral with evil tendencies
  • Portfolio: The Grim Reaper, The Chessmaster, Dramatic Wind, The Dreaded, Eldritch Abomination, Evil Is Petty, Hidden Villain, Invincible Villain, Reality Warper, Trap Master
  • Domains: Death, Fate, Chaos, Destruction, Trickery
  • Allies: Death of the Endless, Death (Regular Show), Death (Discworld) and Death the Horseman, Nurgle, Light Yagami, Dhuum, Malthael, Jigsaw
  • Enemies: SCP-1440, Death (The Seventh Seal)
  • Opposes: Anyone who cheats death or has Joker Immunity, especially Garnet and Shulk, Angela Ziegler/Mercy, Harry Dresden, Dr. Gilbert Grissom, Jean Grey, Lobo, Virtuous
  • Special Relationship: Kenny McCormick
  • Out of all the Death deities, this one may well be the most feared in all the Pantheon, not only because it has all sorts of elaborate ways to kill you, but also its incredible success rate. Out of all of those who had previously cheated Death's design, only three have ever survived its wrath (and even then details are somewhat sketchy). The only respite for those who fear him is that he isn't that active. With so many death deities, he's content with idly running things. But once it finds someone who rigged the system... well that being was probably better off dead.
  • Having starred in a franchise involving increasingly brutal and elaborate deaths, this version of Death's induction into the Pantheon was met with relative fear from many, especially those who have cheated death.
  • Much of the information of his allies and enemies come from word-of-mouth, as his lack of a corporeal form is obviously unable to articulate his opinions.
  • Reserves his greatest hatred for those who have visions of the future. Those are usually the ones who are able to thwart it plans. It has blamed the likes of Garnet and Shulk for giving the likes of Alex and Kimberly foresight to prevent their initially planned deaths.
  • Also despises those who can easily give life immediately after death. The ascension of Mercy into the Pantheon was a harrowing day for its followers. The only respite is that her own life can be snuffed out rather easily. Also gained a hate of Virtuous after her ascension, even more so since she serves as de facto resurrection goddess of the Pantheon.
  • There is no doubt that this Death has been responsible for the many deaths of Kenny Mc Cormick. What is difficult to decipher is its opinion on Kenny's immortality. It could either be frustrated with how easily Kenny can revive himself or entertained at the prospect of someone that can be killed over and over again. As no one has seen the physical form of Death, one may never know.
  • Has mulled over whether to join the GUAD. On the one hand, he would finally prevent seers from predicting his deaths. On the other hand, it would mean Death would no longer have anyone to kill. So far, Death has agreed to only aid when the GUAD targets someone it hates. Not to mention that the GUAD may have given spare resurrections to its followers.
  • Is glad to work hand-in-hand with Dhuum to end the aspect of cheating death. It turns out the two death entities share common end goals. Dhuum may balk at the cruelty of some of Death's kills, but understands its frustrations with those who can come back from the dead.
  • Malthael believes that most of the people targeted by Death deserved that fate. He has even offered to hunt down those who try to change the outcome.
  • Is happily eager to act upon Light Yagami's methods of death. It considers the man to be quite creative in that regard. It is a common theory that the entity is likely responsible for the majority of deaths caused by Light in his home universe.
  • This brought Light's so-called mentor, Jigsaw, to his attention. After an attempt to kill the trap master, the two found each other similar and are now allies.
  • Oddly enough, Dresden has some experience dealing with these kinds of deaths. Whether it was due to Death or not, Harry has offered to assist those affected. That didn't sit well with the entity.
  • The same can be said with Dr. Grissom, though in the forensic scientist's case, he only investigates the cause of death. He knows there is little he can do to stop Death, but he hopes to prevent the doubt that happened in the first Final Destination movie.
  • Holds Jean Grey as a key factor in the ease at which superheroes die and come back alive. In this case, he actually has a sizable audience that agrees with him. Jean kindly denied responsibility, telling the entity to blame the writers who continue to do so. That and her very powers allow her to come back from death with ease.
  • Has tried to lobby with Heaven and Hell to try and take the soul of Lobo if he ever does die. As such neither side has been moved by the arguments; Lobo is simply too volatile of a being to belong in either place. Death moved to a different strategy, constantly trying to kill the bounty hunter until either side falters. Unfortunately, Lobo has proved to just have hard to kill as it is for him to stay dead.

As a Lancer Pseudo-Servant

  • Portfolio: Ruler of the Underworld, Balancing Death's Books, Dark Is Not Evil, The High Queen, Hot as Hell, Loves Nergal because she can't control him, Judges the dead, Noble Demon, Reasonable Authority Figure, Rivals with her sister
  • Domain(s): Death, Judgement, Balance
  • Herald: Nergal (her husband)
  • Special Relationship: Inanna/Ishtar (her sister)
  • Allies: The Bull of Heaven, Master of Chaldea, Hades, Persephone, Osiris, Anubis, Hel, Hela, Hecate, Thor, Apollo, Quetzalcoatl

  • Enemies: Tiamat (both of them), Nagash the Undying, Nekron, Zhaitan, Kel'Thuzad, Molag Bal, Bowser
  • Ereshkigal is the Mesopotamian Goddess of the Underworld and the older sister of Inanna/Ishtar, who famously traveled into the Underworld in an attempt to overthrow Ereshkigal, though she ultimately didn't succeed. As a young girl, she was kidnapped by a dragon named Kur and taken to the Underworld, where she was forced to become the queen of the plane for eternity. Ereshkigal ruled over the dead from her palace Ganzir, which was located at the entrance to the underworld and guarded by seven gates which were kept by her faithful servant Neti. Her power also extended to the living world where, in magical ceremony, she liberated the sick possessed of evil spirits.
    • Souls who had left the world of the living were not supposed to return, and Ereshkigal made certain they remained where they belonged. If a ghost should come back to haunt the living, one could be sure it was for a good reason and with Ereshkigal's permission. The main reasons for a haunting were improper burial of the dead or impious acts which had gone unpunished. As queen and guardian of the dead, Ereshkigal stood as a potent reminder to the living to observe the proper rites and rituals in their lives and to act in the best interests of their immediate and larger communities.
    • Her first husband was the Great Bull of Heaven, Gugalana, who was eventually killed by the heroes Enkidu and Gilgamesh. Later on, Ereshkigal fell in love with Nergal, god of war and plague, who sent her food offerings during a banquet. As only the dead could remain in the underworld, he was forced to leave her. Ereshkigal was so irritated by his departure that she threatened to bring all the dead back to life. Nergal later returned to the Underworld to dethrone her to prevent the troubles she threatened to cause, but she managed to stop him from killing her by agreeing to becoming his wife and share her power with him. In actuality, she preferred it that way, because she always felt alone in her kingdom.
  • Ereshkigal originally entered the Pantheon shortly after her sister did. Hoping to keep Inanna-Ishtar under control, the gods assigned both her and Ereshkigal as Rin Tohsaka's heralds upon learning of their shared history, although none of them liked the arrangement. Eventually, after Inanna-Ishtar ascended, Ereshkigal successfully argued for her own ascension in order to continue keeping an eye on her sister.
  • Aside from her continued rivalry with Inanna-Ishtar, Ereshkigal was pleasantly surprised to be reunited with her first husband, the Bull of Heaven. Although she has since remarried to Nergal, she remains on good terms with him. However, when she learned that two versions of Tiamat were also present, she agreed to put aside her grievances with her sister in order to combat them.
  • Although she was recorded in the Throne of Heroes and became a Servant, she normally can't be summoned due to being a major goddess. However, she managed to bypass this restriction by instead possessing the body of Rin Tohsaka as a Pseudo-Servant. Unlike her sister, Ereshkigal tends to be on friendlier terms with Rin, as well as respecting her powers as a magus. Due to Rin's influence, her more possessive and yandere qualities mellow out and she's better able at displaying her more kind, caring and sincere side. Although she still tries to cultivate the image of a cold, uncaring goddess of the underworld, her attempts at doing so are hampered by her gigantic crush on the Master of Chaldea and instead she tends to come across as both adorable and pretty silly.
  • She's on good terms with fellow Underworld rulers and judges such as Hades, Persephone, Osiris, Anubis, Hel and Hela. Having generally put her duty as ruler above all else, including her own desires, she was quite happy to finally encounter kindred spirits who understand her struggle and can offer advice and companionship. However, she has also occasionally argued with Hades and Hela whenever they start acting villainous and try to usurp other gods, as she considers that to be both a waste of time and an unecessary endangerment of living people.
  • Ereshkigal became interested in meeting Hecate after being told that people tend to conflate the two of them due to them both being goddesses associated with the underworld, darkness and magic. However, upon actually meeting each other, they found that they had little in common. Nonetheless, they remain on good terms.
  • On one occasion, Ereshkigal teamed up with several Underworld deities and Hell-Lords, including Set, Ah Puch and Mephisto among others. Meeting up in Hades' realm, they had decided to merge their respective realms, thus increasing their power, and to begin taking in new souls. However, when they performed a ritual to create the nexus of the netherworlds, they also summoned the Demogorge, the God-Eater, who began consuming them one by one. Fortunately, a group of gods, which included Thor, Apollo and Quetzalcoatl, managed to defeat the Demogorge, forcing him to spit everyone, including Ereshkigal, back out. Ereshkigal has remained grateful to them for saving her and has since promised to refrain from trying to merge her realm with those of the others.
  • Due to the fact that part of her duty consists of ensuring that the dead stay in the Underworld, only allowed to leave with her permission, she quickly came to dislike necromancers such as Nagash the Undying, Nekron, Zhaitan and Kel'Thuzad.
  • She quickly became enemies with Molag Bal considering he specifically created the concept of undeath as a whole by raping a Nede woman just to spite Arkay, the God of Life and Death. To combat Molag Bal, Ereshkigal reluctantly allied with Meridia, his Arch-Enemy. While Meridia possesses a hatred for the undead, she goes straight into overzealousness when committing to their destruction as she is willing to sacrifice the living if it means achieving a greater good, even if that includes her own loyal followers. While Meridia respects Ereshkigal's dedication to her duty, the two still tend to argue due to Meridia's belief that everything and anything she does is good and anyone who disagrees is clearly in the wrong.
  • Having been kidnapped by a dragon as a young girl, Ereshkigal became enemies with Bowser, who is quite well-known for frequently kidnapping Princess Peach. Not wanting to have a confrontation with her, he generally tries to stay out of her way.

  • The first-born son of King Khetep of Khemri, Nagash was enlisted to become a priest for the Mortuary Cult, whereas his younger brother Thutep was enlisted to become king after Khetep's passing. Nagash hated the fact that he was overlooked as a potential ruler out of a birth function and made it a goal to achieve the top of the monarchy by any means. After Khetep was murdered and Thutep became king, Nagash tracked down three Dark Elves who were responsible for his father's death (Whom Nagash didn't care for and was more interested in what killed him). He began to dabble into Black Magic and later killed the Dark Elves after learning and mastering it. Soon after, he killed Thutep by entombing him alive and claimed the position of king, but not before telling his brother that he would be taking his wife and later killing his nephew for nothing other than sadistic satisfaction. He abused Thutep's wife and proved himself to be too self-serving, culminating in creating the Black Pyramid which bankrupted Nehekhara. The other kings of Nehekhara fiercely opposed Nagash, who proceeded to use the Black Pyramid to create necromancy and become its first user, eventually prompting to raise an army of undead. He waged a battle against the people against him and was defeated where he retreated to his sarcophagus while protected by his most loyal servant, Arkhan the Black.
    • Nagash died from exhaustion and malnutrition later on after wandering in the Nehekharian deserts, followed by a verbal beatdown from Thutep. Soon after, Nagash found himself alive again and would encounter the Skaven, who would later go on to become one of Nagash's greatest enemies. He would also enlist slaves into his service and discover a mountain where he would later establish his own fortress, Nagashizzar. Alongside learning and mastering the use of warpstones, Nagash would craft items he would still use to this day before coming across Queen Neferata, who would work with Nagash to create an elixir, and thus becoming the first vampire, and Alcadizaar the Conquerer who deeply opposed Nagash. After a battle that Nagash lost due to the interference of the vampires, Nagash cursed them to feel pain under sunlight and the loss of feeling basic luxuries in everyday life and then later decided to pay the Skaven to spread poison around the sewers of Nehekhara to kill all of its inhabitants. He finally came up with his ultimate goal: The complete and utter destruction and death of all life in the world for Nagash to summon as undead without free will where only he will dictate freely. Ultimately, however, Nagash was slain by Alcazidaar who was freed by terrified Skavens before he too, died from using a sword made of warpstone.
      • He would later return again centuries later, courtesy of his followers and Arkhan, but the sword that Alcadizaar used to kill him before had the additional side-effect of weakening Nagash should he ever be revived. This has been a source of irritation ever since. He would later go on to fight against Sigmar Heldenhammer and die again by his hands before being resurrected again by yet another set of centuries to battle his greatest predecessor, Settra the Imperishable, which by that point, both Nagash and Settra had attained the goal of immortality.
  • Nagash entered the Pantheon after the End Times. And no, he wasn't happy at all after seeing that his plans and goals have been all decimated by Archaon and the Chaos Gods whom opposed the Necromancer as the Chaos Gods are driven by Emotion and that Nagash's end goal would result in the complete eradication of emotion itself. He soon met and struck a deal with Nekron who promised that Nagash would be presented with the opportunity to conquer the Pantheon. While Nekron seemed promising, Nagash, however, feels as if he should be the ultimate destroyer and leader of the Pantheon, for his pride and ego was swollen beyond all measure. He serves the Grand United Alliance of Destruction as a leading figure, but Nagash is biding his time until he gains enough power to usurp Nekron and take over the GUAD.
    • One of the first actions Nagash did was to discover as many graves as he could before casting his necromantic powers to summon a gigantic army of undead people to use for the GUAD's service.
  • It should be noted that Nagash was once a human who had a great position in Nehekharian society. Unfortunately not only was he too ambitious, but he never cared about anybody and saw everything as a means of advancing himself. While he succeeded where Settra left off and achieved immortality, it came with drastic consequences that included the rise of the Undead and vampires. And his dabbling into black magic and the overuse of warpstones took to altering Nagash's appearance before he finally mutating into a skeletal being towering over 15 feet tall and having much of his armor infused into his body. Unlike Settra who despises his looks, Nagash is rather content with it.
  • Nagash is unquestionably one of the most depraved and sadistic beings in the entire Pantheon, his actions matching up among the likes of Yuuki Terumi, Johan Liebert and Griffith, and considering the world he came from, its no exaggeration. His monstrous deeds have ranged from the personal to worldwide and he did all of it either because power was the only thing that mattered or he enjoys people suffering and will not waste any time in tormenting, mocking and torturing anybody he can get his hands on. His unpopular and hated reception is comparable to that of Zamasu, who himself is disgusted by Nagash's actions and thinks of his immortality as a sinful curse, though the Fallen Kai isn't any different from depravity either.
    • Madoka Kaname hates him. She really despises Nagash, which is something given her character, stating that his actions are something only a true madman would do. The feeling is also mutual for Usalia whose sworn enemy was someone who'd resurrect her parents into undead and feels Nagash's presence is that of a great evil that has to be stopped. Several rulers in the Pantheon are justifiably appalled with what Nagash had accomplished and what he wanted to do, in addition to killing off his own people partly due to his frustration and partly because of a kick of enjoyment. His ambition earned him the ire of Guts and his treatment of Thutep, his wife and nephew and his complete apathy about his father's murder made him a sworn enemy of the House of Family. The denizens of the ninja world, particularly Kakashi Hatake are vehemently opposed to Nagash due to his affinity for necromancy and feel that he is far more unhinged than Orochimaru and Kabuto Yakushi. Even Orochimaru is unnerved, though its because he couldn't allow Nagash to destroy the Pantheon lest all of Orochimaru's current and future research becomes wasted.
    • Even a good amount of villains find themselves opposing Nagash. Bowser is direct about his villainy, but he truly loves his son and gains the respect of his followers, and after hearing about Nagash, wanted absolutely nothing to do with him. Vlad von Carstein, himself a king of bloodthirsty vampires opposes the Great Necromancer for treating and disregarding the vampires like trash in addition to his leadership completely contrasting Vlad's stable and surprisingly prosperous reign. Malekith of the Dark Elves thinks of Nagash as a monster who needs to be stopped and hates him just as much as the Chaos Gods. Nagato is disgusted by the lengths that Nagash would go to regarding his end goals and has named him a top enemy in his new organization which includes Bowser and Vlad. Nagash is also opposed by Thanos who feels as if his actions are a mockery of Mistress Death and that the Mad Titan sees him as a threat when it comes to Thanos's affection of Death.
  • One of the most powerful necromancers to ever exist, Nagash is immensely feared throughout the Pantheon, to the extent that even hardened foes are left quivering in fear whenever the Great Necromancer decides to get himself involved in battle. Such fear that can be respected by numerous villains like Shinnok, Alduin and The Lich, who were willing to allow Nagash for an alliance. Nagash has accepted, though he personally sees all of this as a way to potentially weasel his way into a more feared reputation and higher leadership. Alongside his nine books, one of which he keeps, Nagash possesses a trio of magically enhanced equipment for battle.
    • Morikhane – Black Armour of Nagash - An armor crafted from an alloy of lead and some kind of meteoric iron. Due to Nagash's reliance on Black Magic, the armor has infused into his skin, effectively becoming a part of Nagash. Unlike most armors, Morikhane does not hamper Nagash's magic usage in any way.
    • Mortis – The Great Blade of Death - A gigantic sword created and enchanted by the Great Necromancer so that only, and ONLY Nagash himself can use it. The sword empowers Nagash's physical strength and anything it wounds heals Nagash.
    • Alakanash – Staff of Power - Nagash's staff that allows him to channel and store an additional amount of magical strength to allow the Great Necromancer to use his most powerful and devastating spells.
  • Thanks to his ego and ambition, Nagash is even more determined to collect more power and become more godly than he currently is now that he has seen how much potential the Pantheon really has. He is seeking to become an Overdeity by any means necessary, even bringing along the Black Pyramid and forcing his undead army to scrounge up any worthy materials, especially warpstones, to accelerate the goal. At the same time, he needs to feign Nekron about the fact that he is collecting items for the GUAD to use, a task that is harder than it sounds and often requires the assistance of Arkhan.
  • Is respected by Yuuki Terumi for what he did to his world's vampires, which Terumi found to be hilarious on his part. Though Nagash doesn't have much to state about Terumi, although he notes his depravity as pretty exceptional. Terumi reciprocates these feelings, though Zamasu is currently trying to convince Terumi to not think too much about the Great Necromancer.
  • Darkseid sees his end goal as pretty respectable on his part, though he has noted that he limited his scope to only his world. The Great Necromancer was intrigued by the lengths that the Lord of Tyranny went through to become a God himself and noted that they're a lot more similar than expected. The two have agreed to a cease-fire as both of them oppose Melkor and the Chaos Gods, but Nagash is also plotting to kill Darkseid once the deal has expired. Archaon serving the Lord of Tyranny was a pestering news, but Nagash will let it slide for now.
  • Privately admits that Settra, the one being who opposes him above everyone else, is one of the only individuals Nagash can bring himself up to respect. Then again, Nagash's immortality and his current state and power wouldn't have been possible if Settra hadn't united Nehekhara and established the Mortuary Cult in search of immortality. Still doesn't change the fact that the two of them are the greatest of enemies.
  • Has been referenced by the Killian Experience as "just a skeleton whom a vampire spent all his money on because he was immortal and bored. And he "didn't live up to the hype". Nagash became furious over the claim, though not because Killian is making fun of him, which Nagash is content with, considering he's practically hated by nearly everyone in the Pantheon, but because the vampire in question is Mannfred von Carstein, whose selfishness and pettiness was the reason The Warhammer World was destroyed and robbed Nagash of all of his efforts. In fact, while Nagash still has Mannfred as his herald, he's not going to be forgiving anytime, because of which the vampire is in hiding until he finds a way to get ascended.
    • Then one day, Mannfred managed to gain a prominent place in the Pantheon, to Nagash's surprise. The treacherous vampire managed to gain the confidence to confront his master about future plans with which Nagash decided to concede upon. Soon enough, he inducted Mannfred into his services again, once again reclaiming his title of Mortarch of Night.
      • In spite of the renewed alliance, Nagash is still pissed off about the aspect that Mannfred completely botched his plans. When approached by Nekron about why letting Mannfred come back to his army, the Great Necromancer stated that it'd be appropriate to have a treacherous backstabber in their forces as a means to sharpen their wits and to keep in check of their allies just as much as his enemies. Nekron has agreed to the terms given the overall nature of the GUAD Scar Corps
  • In addition to the aforementioned Mannfred, Nagash also took an interest in Konrad von Carstein, the other successor to Vlad. He was able to lull him into an alliance with the prospect of billions worth of blood. Konrad accepted the terms as long as he was given an interdimensional portal to extend his pillages to new heights. Nagash has since marked him Mortarch of Depravity a fitting title to someone like Konrad. That said, their relationship is rather rocky due to Konrad's insatiable madness and often dog-like nature when it comes to his actions. It also doesn't help that Konrad and Mannfred are now closer again, though unlike Vlad, Nagash lets them squabble against one another for his own amusement.
  • Doesn't have much thoughts for Voldemort. Voldemort is impressed by Nagash and his actions, but the Great Necromancer sees him as a disappointment and too small-scaled. Not to mentioned his scope was towards the UK, but mainly a high-school, and he got outsmarted and killed by a bunch of teenagers.
  • Is commended by Molag Bal for his utter and unrelenting depravity and his grand ambition. Nagash himself sees the Harvester of Souls as much better deity than the ones that the Nehekharian people worshiped. Though Nagash would much rather feel that Molag Bal defect Melkor in favor of him (Not Nekron, just him).
  • Set up an invasion in the Pantheon to lay waste upon receiving Nekron's permission and rallying up an alliance with Shinnok, Gul'dan and Count Orlok. He decided to take to personally battling the Puella Magi during which he killed Mami and Kyoko in an effort to break the remaining members's spirits, especially Madoka 's who broke down to uncontrollable tears after receiving too much of Nagash's vicious insults and mocking over her slain friends. He was attacked by Artix Von Krieger whereupon the two engaged in a gruelling duel with Nagash mostly having the upper hand. Only with the interference of Settra and Nagato was Nagash finally pushed back. Although he retreated, he snickered in sadistic satisfaction in making Madoka miserable and creating another massive set of casualties for the GUAD to add to their forces.
  • Has formed a rivalry with Arthas Menethil due to their human origins and being the most feared undead figures in their respective worlds. That said, even Arthas wants nothing to do with Nagash. Conversely, Nagash gets along splendidly with Kel'Thuzad due to their omnicidal nature and their affinity to dark magic and necromancy.
  • Has written nine books to detail his necromantic powers and how to learn and master them. These are currently scattered all across the Pantheon to Nagash's annoyance. He's telling Nekron to quickly dispatch troops to retrieve the books so that they aren't used against them.
  • After witnessing and researching Nagash and his powers, Hal Jordan sent an urgent message to the other Lantern Corps to discuss combating against the Great Necromancer. Sinestro devised that the time has come for the Lantern Corps to strengthen their unity with one another, considering Nagash's alliance with Nekron and that the Lantern Rings should begin to be distributed to potential members of the Pantheon regarding their strong affinity towards a certain emotion. While Larfleeze isn't going to give out any ring (given the Orange Lantern's emotional power), he will accept the alliance as he does agree with Nagash being a threat to the entire Pantheon and to the entire emotional spectrum as a whole.
    • From here, The Lantern Corps and the Puella Magi have become the greatest enemies of Nagash not from his world. And each and every member has every good reason to despise the necromancer. Nagash only sees amusement and is willing to kick off a killing spree in the chances that he could mock and mentally torture them. He's since seen Hal as a challenging foe, who alongside Madoka, remind him of Sigmar. As much as he hates to admit it, Nagash has to seek Nekron's aid regarding the two factions.
  • Nagash has developed a recent enmity against Aldia as both of them are subjects to Complete Immortality, but whereas Nagash is dismissive of the entity and would kill it to ensure that he himself is the absolute ruler of the afterlife and the Undead, Aldia thinks Nagash takes what YHVH embodies and adds a sadistic and omnicidal spin to it and is willing enough to make alliances to combat against the Great Necromancer.
  • Has noticed an alternate universe where to his shock, he discovered that the Liche-Priest, Nerutep is actually Thutep who had been assisting Settra and deciphering Nagash's nine books to become the lord of the Black Pyramid, alongside winning Settra's approval. Nagash broke down like never before, mindlessly killing several of his own minions and nearly terraforming a piece of land, learning that once again, he is beneath Thutep. At the same time, this unseen rage has now made Nagash even more determined to destroy the Pantheon and overtake it as its ultimate ruler.
  • While he greatly opposes the GUAE, he isn't averse to providing troops for Melkor so long as the God of Evil provides him with a steady stream of undead soldiers from his mounting list of casualties. When he's gotten what he needs and killed Nekron, the GUAE will be next on his list.
  • Next to Nekron himself, Meridia marks Nagash as the ultimate example of the vileness of the Undead. While she does have a point, at least in regards to Nagash, much of the Undead think she's being too extreme. Nagash himself, on the other hand, boasts on how he's a literal god due to absorbing one during the End Times and bets her into killing him.
  • Is one of the Lords of the Unliving in the House of Undead.
"There will be no escape, no blessed oblivion. I can end your life as easily as I can extinguish a candle, and before your corpse is cold, I can reach out and grasp your soul. You will be my slave for all eternity, and I shall laugh at the depths of your pain. Such is the power of Nagash."

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/RYUK.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Theme Music: Kyrie Medley
  • Symbol: A half-eaten apple
  • Alignment: Chaotic Affably Evil
  • Portfolio: Shinigami, Owner of the Death Note, Slasher Smiles, Souls, Apples, Affably Evil
  • Domain: The Nothing After Death, Death, Trickery
  • Followers: Castlevania's Death, Risky, Malroth
  • Allies: Hades, Grim, Cesare, Emperor Norton I, The Laughing Salesman, Evolto
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Light Yagami (forced on Light's end), Rem
  • Rival: Ichigo Kurosaki
  • Enemies: Maximus (Tangled), Peter Burke, Johnny Appleseed, Apple Jack
  • Odd Friendship with: Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi/Ashirogi Muto
  • Annoys: Nero (Devil May Cry), Son Gohan
  • After Light actually ascended after dying, Ryuk found himself being severely outranked by the former human he was messing with for jollies. Light showed no antagonism (he enjoys his new godhood), but did accidentally (Really! Total mistake on his part!) reveal that only being in the Pantheon might protect Ryuk. Ryuk immediately became somewhat respectable and became part of the system (Light just smiled). However, this won't stop him from backstabbing Light again.
    • Rumor has it that he was the one that actually ascended Rem herself in order to help Ryuk get freed of Light's control. He still keeps tabs on her, in case he thinks he could use her help in something.
  • In rare cases of seriousness, Ryuk will explain that the human obsession with afterlives is irrational, and he and his kind are just nature's way of cleaning up psychic residue and leftover lifeforce.
  • Also lends a hand to fledgling Shinigami and Deaths; partially to keep on the higher-ups good side, partially to mind-screw with Ichigo Kurosaki. (Hey, he watched Light in action and learned quite a bit.) He is, however, going to mess with them a bit. Also, if everyone dies, there won't be anyone left to die. Or grow apples.
  • Is in a meme war (he's doing it for the lulz) with Ichigo over what being a Shinigami means, in large part thanks to the Court of the Gods ascending them both with the same trope.
    • Once the Court was wind of this mistake, several factors came into play that helped decide the debate. Namely, Ichigo being more associated with cool fights than the ferrying of souls, plus the convenient escalation of his powers that comes from the reveal that he's actually been a mix of every type of soul in his world this whole time, not just its version of Shinigami. Ichigo would be given a new trope, the god of Heinz Hybrids, with a temple fit for two separate houses.
    • Ryuk still annoys Ichigo for the hell of it by constantly coming up to him and claiming victory, oftentimes doing so in the middle of his sparring with either Nero or Son Gohan. Sure, he has to constantly dodge that Getsuga Tensho attack of his, but it's well worth it.
  • The symptoms of his lack of apples are startiiiiiing.
  • Was almost killed by Vegeta after several prank calls Gone Horribly Wrong. He has now switched to prank-calling Shockblast.
  • Upon following Light around one day as he tried to plan up ways to ax off people from the house of Crime, he ended up seeing the Laughing Salesman make contact with both him and Light, despite him not even touching Ryuk or Light's Death Note before meeting him. Upon Light telling him about his desire to bring a new wave of justice to the Pantheon, Ryuk found himself with a first row seat as Moguro was able to promote Light to the head of the House of Justice, arresting and executing people left and right... even trying to ax off Moguro after finding out about his misdeeds in his own world. This just led to a very unamused Moguro to DON Light into making his Death Note ineffective... basically freeing Ryuk from Light's service as he kept that Death Note over Ryuk. As he saw Light beg Ryuk to help him, Ryuk decided to write down that Light would be killed in a prison riot, saying Light lost all forms of amusement for him at this point, laughing as several criminals Light arrested broke free, ready to rip Light open a new one for arresting so many people on so many flimsy pretenses.
    • After seeing Light get revived, he ended up begging Ryuk for another Death Note, being able to keep his memories as he still had the other Death Note, it just couldn't kill when written in, meaning he needed another one. Misa still had her Death Note, but Rem wanted NOTHING to do with Light, meanwhile, Teru ascended without one. This only led to him laugh about How the Mighty Have Fallen, only giving in after Light brought him a basket full of apples. Ryuk gave the notebook to him, but not before reminding him why he was doing it.
    Ryuk: "Listen Light, allow me to make myself perfectly clear this one time. I'm only doing this because seeing how you will either succeed or fail is enjoyable to me. You do not own me. I own you. If I so please, I can rip this notebook out of your hands at any moment to give to someone else. I'm more powerful than you, and I will not hesitate to show why if you try to think otherwise, understand?"
  • After reminding Light of his power, to further prove his point, he then went to the Court Of The Gods to demand to jump up to Greater God status, threatening to kill them all if they don't comply. After finding out that their guards their just shoot their bullets right through him, they relented and gave him, and by extension Rem, Greater God status. He now spends his time mocking Light and going off to drink wine and eat apples with Moguro, thanking him for giving him the chance to be freed from Light's servitude. They talk about topics only they would find amusing and prank calling other deities. He sometimes invites Hades along just to mess with other deities.
  • Was highly amused to find Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi requesting him for an autograph. He's usually signing other people's names, so signing his own was a change he didn't expect.
  • Whenever he's in need of apples badly, he sometimes steals from Maximus's stash, must to his annoyance. He did try to learn about planting his own apple tree after Johnny Appleseed and Applejack heard of Maximus's complaints, but he always walked off to just pick apples from their fields. Needless to say, they really didn't go anywhere. Doesn't help that the soil in Ryuk's temple is ill-fitted from growing grass, let alone trees.
  • Grim was vastly impressed with how Ryuk backstabbed Light, clapping and laughing upon meeting up with him the next time. Ryuk sometimes writes Billy and Mandy in his death note to give Grim some time off, only adding onto how much Grim likes him, enough to confide in him that that may have some feeling for Rem. Despite knowing very well that Shinigami have no reasons to fall in love with humans, let alone more perverted things, Ryuk still decided to help set Grim up on some dates with, if only to see how disastrous they could turn out.
  • Ryuk enjoys watching the antics of Cesare within the Pantheon, even if he is saddened to find out he can't use his death note. He is looking around for a new god or goddess to properly give his Death Note too.
  • "HYUK HYUK HYUK!"

    Tenshi Hinanawi 
Tenshi Hinanawi, The Celestial Who Messes with the Weather (Tenshi Hinanai, Chiko Hinanawi, Young Mistress of Bhava-Agra, Tenko)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th155tenshi.png
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: Her hat crossed with the "Hisou no Tsurugi", or Sword of Scarlet Perceptions
  • Theme song: "Catastrophe in Bhava-agra ~ Wonderful Heaven", "Bhava-agra as Seen Through a Child's Eyes." when she gets serious
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, Chaotic Good at heart
  • Portfolio: Celestial, don't like anyone to belittle her abilities, almost destroying Gensokyo because she was bored, childish person that doesn't know her limit, Designated Villain, Earth-based attacks, Enemies with Shinigami, Jerkass, Meaningful Name
  • Domains: Earth, Weather
  • Allies: Nami
  • Enemies: Eliphas
  • Friendly: Reimu Hakurei
  • Opposed: Reapers in general
  • Bored out of her skull one day, she heard stories from some of Gensokyo's residents about the Trope Pantheon and decided to visit. After hearing about the multitudes of incidents that happened there, she decided to cause an apocalypse in the Pantheon with unusual weather and constant earthquakes to join in on the fun. After tiring from constant combat with those who challenged her, she apologized and helped in restoring what she destroyed. This incident, coupled with how she accomplished much the same in Gensokyo, is how she attained her title.
    • It was confirmed by ZUN that Tenshi is good at heart. Despite the damage she caused, the only casualties were those that she fought in self-defense against. She thought it was tradition to cause an incident in the Pantheon in order to ascend.
  • Storm, as a Goddess of Weather, was one of those who fought Tenshi during the above event. Faced with Tenshi's abilities, though, there wasn't much that she could do. Though she doesn't hold a grudge against the Celestial, she's currently undergoing training to keep her defeat from happening again.
  • After her incident, seeing that Trope Pantheon is way more lively and fun than Bhava-Agra, she have decided to built her vacation home temple and take permanent resident in here. Or until ZUN calls her back for another incident.
    • Upon the temple's completion, she have opened a party to celebrate the event.
  • For the last time, she not a masochist. She's getting tired of people mentioning it, and even more tired having to beat people that use that as an excuse.
  • Her sword, Hisou no Tsurugi, have the abilities to exploit the weakness of her opponent by "channel the most effective attributes to counter the nature of that opponent". It's can also shape-shift, control the weather, turn spirit into energy stored in the sword and release it all at once in form of giant beam, making it a versatile and dangerous weapon. For this reason, many have come to claim the sword with no success.
  • She would comes from place to place to play, sometimes forecast the weather to gods around her with 100% accuracy.
  • Being a chaotic person yet still a human that attain divine status, she earn great ire from Eliphas without knowing why.
  • Opposed the various reaper exist in Pantheon as she have to fight them to extend her natural life. While most of them doesn't really care about her, Dhumm however fought her constantly while kept shouting how he gonna bring the end to her, much to her annoyance.
  • Have a friendly relationship with Reimu because she have restore her shrine in Gensokyo (even though it got destroyed later and have to rebuilt it again) and even putted a keystone to prevent more earthquake. It's only to an extend of allowing her to join in whether she got a party though.
  • Have shown interest in some of the monster that could control the weather. She hope for one day to have one of them at pet.
  • After hearing Storm's defeats against Tenshi through her, Nami have taken an interest in her ability to control weather and have asked to shared her knowledge about meteorology. Through tea party and constant flattery, she's promised to share her that in exchange for her's adventure and experience with the strange weather and occurance on her world, and the two became friend.
    • Nami have also analyzed her power and Hisou no Tsurugi in order to help her friend Storm, under Tenshi's acceptance. She said it would make her's future fight against Storm a bit more exciting.
  • Have constantly visited the House Of Food, as she's a bit sicked from eating peaches every single day and want to eat food with actual flavor.
    • Incidentally, having taken some peaches from the aforementioned party and successfully grow it in here, the House of Food have putted Bhava-Agra's peach's delicacy on their menu at health food, much to Tenshi's annoyance.
  • Can also be found in Weather.

Intermediate Gods

    Ammit 
Ammit, Goddess of Post-Mortem Non-Existence (The Devourer of the Dead, Eater of Hearts, Great of Death, Ammut, Ahemait)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5daa19ba722351c77897cb5851e20fa85930681f.jpg
Artist's interpretation of Ammit
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A scale with the heart outweighing the feather of Ma'at
  • Theme Song: Ammit, Devourer of Souls
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Soul Eating To End The Afterlives Of Sinners, Mix-and-Match Critters, Has The Head Of A Crocodile, Our Demons Are Different
  • Domains: Monsters, The Afterlife, Death and Annihilation, Chimeras(Crocodile, Lion and Hippo)
  • Interests: Jabba the Hutt
  • Allies: Osiris, Anubis, Cerberus, Ramon, Dhuum, Flynn, Nanashi, Tadano Hitonari, Hibiki Kuze, Bolvar Fondragon
  • On speaking terms with: Reapers and psychopomps, Silvally
  • Rivals: The Dementors
  • Enemies: Apophis, AM, Voldemort
  • Avoided by: Marceline the Vampire Queen, the Forms of Immortality and Manners of Revival sub-houses
  • Feared by: All deities from Ancient Egypt, those who faced the Dementors, Captain Hook, Malty S Melromac
  • The Land of the Dead can be a dangerous place without proper instructions, but those who make it to the end are judged. Their heart is weighed with the feather of Ma'at, the sins being its weight. The feather weighs more? Welcome to paradise. But if the heart weighs more from sin? Ammit arrives, devouring it and the sinner. There is no fate afterwards for them; Ammit has devoured their soul and they no longer exist.
  • The method judgement Ammit is part of are similar to Bolvar Fondragon; the righteous have nothing to fear, the wicked get Deader Than Dead for their troubles. The two have formed a bond over this. Ammit has also fought Yami Yugi in a Shadow Game involving Shadi, but that wasn't personal for Ammit and more than believes he deserves his rest in the afterlife.
  • Ammit is a monster with the head of a crocodile, the mane/upper body of a lion, and the lower body of a hippo. In short, terrifying. Most feline deities want to steer clear of her. Ramon, however, was a crocodile that was spooky enough on its own to be curious about the Egyptian demon and offered some food for Ammit as a sign it means no harm. Ammit appreciated it and the two became friends. Due to how he got a hook for a hand, Captain Hook was terrified by this development.
  • Ammit fits the idea of a chimera, though predates Greek mythology. Technically considered a demon, but usually feels at home in the House of Monsters. She was curious about Silvally and while not allies, seems to tolerate the artificial chimera. Discord, himself made of various creatures, has wondered what would happen if she was discorded.
  • The name depends on the translation, but denizens of the Shin Megami Tensei multiverse call her Ammut. She has sided with a number of protagonists, but remains neutral aligned. She doesn't have an opinion on YHVH or Lucifer, compared to the Egyptian gods, what with being more of a demonic beast not concerned with Divine Conflict. It's probably for the best that they keep it that way.
  • Cessation of Existence is supposed to be a permanent affair, but this is the Trope Pantheon; with Ammit, it simply takes longer(and is a lot more traumatizing). This annoys Ammit as she wants more souls for dinner and the pantheon won't let her. Dhuum sympathizes with this and the desire for final death. While she works for Osiris and Anubis, she likes being with Dhuum.
  • Tends to associate with the grim reapers and psychopomps of the pantheon; she's well-behaved enough not to take whatever souls they have with them at the time. Jabba the Hutt was amused by how Ammit eats sinners and is thinking of making her a pet, which most scoff at. Being beasts who play an important role in the afterlife, Ammit likes to hang out with Cerberus as well.
  • Voldemort wants to kick Ammit out because she can easily just eat horcruxes and is powerful enough to ignore the protection charm. The Dementors meanwhile want all the souls to themselves, and Ammit is frustrated by them stealing her food. Given she devours souls, most Harry Potter deities are creeped out by Ammit. At the very least the victims have no more existence rather than an Empty Shell existence.
  • True to sadistic form, AM has contempt for Ammit because by destroying souls and causing a Cessation of Existence it denies the malevolent super-computer a chance to torment said souls. And as with all Egyptian deities, Ammit is no fan of Apophis. While not an enemy, Marceline wants to steer clear of her because the fact she has absorbed vampire souls and powers means it could make her look tasty to Ammit.
  • It is not known if, were it not for the Death Is Cheap nature of the pantheon, that Ammit could render immortals Deader Than Dead. Presumably not those with Complete Immortality, and it might just be that Ammit can only attack those who are already dead. She would definitely prevent revivals. Neither the Forms of Immortality or Manners of Revival sub-houses want her anywhere near them.
  • With her destructive abilities and monstrous appearances, even the SCP Foundation made a one-time mistake of thinking Ammit was SCP-682. Given 682's Multiple-Choice Past, it was a fringe theory they were the same, but now they're proven otherwise they decided Ammit might be able to terminate 682 once and for all. This proved yet another failure as 682 didn't have a soul, or at least lacked one that Ammit could remotely recognize. 682 was frustrated with the attempt on its life, however does hate Ammit a little less than humans for permanently destroying "disgusting" life-forms, and being a literal monster with reptilian qualities.
  • Dreaded by those who have been at risk of their soul being destroyed/devoured, or if it's happened to them and the pantheon is all that saves them from complete Cessation of Existence. Such as Malty, who was executed in a similar manner, and her heart would be way too heavy with sin to avoid being an obvious target for the beast.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dhuum_render.jpg
  • Intermediate God, formerly a Greater God before his defeat.
  • Symbol: Dhuum's scythe.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Bonus Boss, Intolerant of Resurrection and Undeath, Immortal Immaturity, Physical God, Sinister Scythe, The Grim Reaper, Third-Person Person
  • Domains: Death, Void, Injustice
  • Allies: The Dahaka
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: The Grand United Alliance of Destruction
  • Enemies: GRENTH, every God who has cheated death especially Jean Grey and John Egbert, every Undead God, Yuma Tsukumo, Orochimaru, Ridley
  • Opposes: Cheaters and Trolls in general.
  • Tolerates: Every god who has died and accepted it.
  • When Grenth ascended to the pantheon, the GUAD realized that the God of Death could very well undo their hard work as he allows resurrection. The Ring Overlords searched for ways they could possibly defeat him. Eventually, they discovered the existence of a fallen Tyrian god called Dhuum, who hunted down those who cheated death or became undead and was overthrown by Grenth himself. Nekron and his fellow masters decided to pull a few strings and, after several attempts, successfully got Dhuum ascended with the goal of having Dhuum defeat Grenth and retake his powers, hopefully getting rid of an obstacle in the process.
    • Although the GUAD is largely responsible for Dhuum ascending, the fallen god himself balked at the sight of the undead armies that GUAD uses. The only reason that he's working with them at all is that the Pantheon is outright packed with gods who cheated death in the past. Once the cheaters of death has met their demise and he has punished Grenth for overthrowing him, Dhuum plans to betray them and assist the rest of the Pantheon in bringing final death to every undead member of the GUAD and their leaders.
    • Though word has it that the GUAD might be influencing Dhuum, for some uncovered information has revealed that Dhuum has new plans for Tyria's humanity. Its annihilation. However, his hatred of resurrection and undeath has not dissipated one bit, and his hatred for the GUAD persists still.
  • Note that Dhuum won't hunt every god who has died before. It's only if they were resurrected in their home universe that he will hunt them down to grant them undeniable death. He also won't hunt them if they survived in an alternate reality/timeline, as long as they weren't actually resurrected. As such, he leaves gods who died and wasn't resurrected alone.
  • Awful he may be, even Dhuum hates trolls and cheaters and has been known to punish them (aka immobilize and then kill them in a single strike) in the past. Trolls and cheaters within in the pantheon was relieved to know that Dhuum won't hunt them for now, as those who cheated death and undeads are above them when it comes to his priorities.
  • In his hunt for those who have been resurrected, Dhuum confronted Jean Grey. Though powers of his godhood lingered around, it wasn't enough to take on Jean in the end, especially since he didn't expect her to as powerful as she is. Learning from his mistake, he has made a mental note to hold off from trying and bring undeniable death to similarily powerful comic book gods like Jean until he has taken back his powers from Grenth.
  • Bifurcated Kenny McCorwick with his scythe on his first day in the Pantheon, which had many call him a bastard immediately... then Kenny returned from death as usual. Dhuum reaped him over and over out of annoyance, the kid resurrecting each time before he finally gave up and decided to figure out a different way to bring undeniable death to Kenny.
  • Hearing about how Yuma Tsukumo resurrected many in a large-scale casualty event, the enforcer has issued a warning to Yuma that if he interferes in his mission, resurrected and undead gods won't be the only targets of his campaign.
  • While Dhuum often knows who cheats death, figuring out who cheated death by changing time itself is a different and tricky matter. Which is why he has a professional alliance with the Dahaka, as the Dahaka knows exactly who does that and where they are. Dhuum is often seen helping the Dahaka out as a result, since the Dahaka's goals are very likely to be shared ones.
  • For a god, Dhuum is actually somewhat childish during battles, using phrases such as "DHUUM LAUGHS AT YOUR PATHETIC ATTEMPTS TO HARM HIM, HA HA!" and "YOU STILL BELIEVE YOU CAN DEFEAT DHUUM? HOW SAD FOR YOU!". This has made him friends with Lord English, who's undeniably immature. Lord English is also said to punish those who cheats death, but Dhuum isn't quite sure of the validity of these claims.
    • Hearing about how John Egbert has returned from the death countless times, Dhuum has put John Egbert near the top of his shitlist. Now if only John wasn't so annoying hard to catch.
  • Does not like Orochimaru for his resurrection Jutsu and threatened the ninja with a terrible fate should he end up being an obstacle.
  • As Dhuum's shit list grows ever larger, there is a replica of the list put on the shrine in front of his temple as a reminder to his followers and worshippers as to who cheats death within the Pantheon. However, some has pointed out that Asura is curiously missing from the list. Dhuum's response?
  • Statues of Dhuum do not exist. This annoys the Ender of All greatly, for Grenth has many statues dedicated to him.

    Grim 
Grim, God of Loser Grim Reapers (Reaper, Grimmy, G, Skeleton Man, Big Dummy, Bone Head)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grim_8.png
  • Intermediate God (Lesser God without his scythe)
  • Symbol: His scythe and robes
  • Theme Song: The show's intro theme
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Wager Slave, Butt-Monkey, Embodiments Of Death That Are OK Guys, Punch-Clock Villain, Odd Friendship, Unliving Skeletons, The Reaper Is A Loser, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, Heroic Comedic Sociopath, Scary Jamaican Undead, Frenemy Complexes, Beware the Nice Ones, No Respect Guy
  • Domains: Death, Servitude, Reaping, Monsters, The Underworld, Limbo
  • High Priest: Mister Grimm
  • Allies: Dracula (huge fan), Death (Regular Show) (fellow Grim Reaper), The Kids Next Door (especially Numbah 3), Dhuum, Ryuk, Hades, Satan (South Park)
  • On good terms with: The other reapers not mentioned, Beerus
  • Headbutting Heroes with: Cerberus (former pet), Hoss Delgado
  • Special relationship with: Billy and Mandy (eternally bound to "friends")
  • Enemies: Jack O'Lantern, The Delightful Children From Down The Lane, Pinhead, Cthulhu, Nurgle, Nekron, Pitch Black, Kenny McCormick
  • Opposes: The Forms of Immortality sub-house, Skips, Mr Burns, Rick Sanchez, old people and health freaks
  • Pitied by: Lord Death
  • Grim is his world's embodiment of Death, having had the role since he was elected for it in high school. When he came to collect the 10 year old Mr. Snuggles from Billy and Mandy, he challenged them to a limbo contest. If he won, he'd promise to be their friend for eternity and never reap the pet. It was a limbo contest, and due to his skeletal body he thought he had tricked them-however Mr Snuggles interfered and caused him to lose. Ever since then, he has been the eternal "friend" and caretaker of the kids. Much hilarity and chaos resulted.
  • Forever the friend of Billy and Mandy, though their definition of "friend" is more "babysitter and slave". He cannot break the deal or he'll go to Underworld Jail, though in their defense he was borderline cheating with limbo due to his physiology. Dreams of finding a loophole though. Despite this, there's some genuine affection between the three of them, he just won't ever admit it. Visits the House of Friendship to discuss his issues with this.
  • Dreams of Billy and Mandy dying, however it is unclear if even that is possible. He is meant to be their friend forever, which might give some sort of immortality or he'll just have to serve their ghosts. Upon learning they were gods and thus effectively immortal so long as the pantheon stands, he screamed NO! at the top of his lungs. At the very least, this means he has effective immortality and can't be killed by, say, his life hourglass being messed with.
  • Grim's main tool is his scythe, which proves to be one of the more versatile incarnations of the Reaper's scythe. It can slice, take souls and open rifts in space-time to other dimensions along with other magical phenomena. It can also cut off someone's head permanently such as Jack O'Lantern or his own. Those with a Healing Factor are unnerved by it because the weapon would likely work on them, though he hasn't had reason to use it on any pantheon god.
  • Breaches in the House of Otherness are usually due to mishandling of the scythe, and/or the boredom of Billy and Mandy. One such incident involved Billy and the Delightful Kids From Down The Lane merging into "the Delightful Reaper", who tried to assimilate all it came across. He's grateful towards the Kids Next Door for their help, especially Numbah 3 who served as a substitute for him.
  • It isn't that hard to make a fool of Grim. Having already made the Devil of his series a chump, Rick Sanchez decided to mess around with Grim for no good reason. Mandy would have interfered, if she didn't find his Comedic Sociopathy somewhat amusing, so she let them play. Fortunately for Grim, Rick quickly got bored and moved on.
  • Because of his occupation, he associates closely with the House of Life and Death. He and the Regular Show Death are best friends as they're both incarnations of Death who constantly are made fools of. Him and Ryuk are friendly due to being lax entities of death, and he finds the shinigami rather amusing. Warns him not to let Kira take advantage of him, but Ryuk isn't too worried since he was the one who killed Light at the end.
  • Respects Beerus for being a force of death(well destruction) while maintaining his power and dignity against Goku, and being fun to be around. Straight up friends with Satan as they were once powerful underworld figures who ended up becoming pansies, and are pretty OK guys when all things are considered.
  • Dislikes old people and health freaks, but especially those trying or having some form of immortality. Their position as immortals is a threat to his job, given how other people could learn from them. As such he dislikes the Forms of Immortality sub-house, and Mr Burns for being an old man who constantly cheats death no matter how frail he is. This is something Dhuum can completely understand, and is sympathetic to him since being bound to Billy and Mandy makes it hard for him to do his job and get people to die.
    • Tried to chase down Kenny once, but ended up getting his ass kicked. Still sore about it.
  • While the embodiment of death and a crouchy, cantankerous person, he's not exactly evil but just a reaper doing his job. He just happens to love his work. As with just about all death entities he considers Nekron horrible for seeking the complete extinction of all life. Nekron in turn considers him to be pathetic, a shadow of a shadow of "true" death. Both can at least agree that Nurgle is an abominable representation of life and immortality.
  • Grew up in the underworld, and thus has an association with the creepier and gothic side of the House of Otherness. He is a massive fan of Dracula, and managed to get his autograph again. However some of these beings he is on bad terms with. Pinhead (or rather Pinface) is still mad that Grim dated his sister, though she came on to him. He is glad that the Boogeyman hasn't ascended due to bullying him in college, though this bad relationship has led him and Pitch Black to becoming enemies.
  • Had Cerberus as a pet when he was a child, but the pet was unruly and ate his dad(he got better). Glad to see its with Hades, who's a much better owner.

There are no known means of keeping him permanently sealed, and this is due to his curse. Immortal, after a few days he will cause destruction in human habitats or man-made environments with the exception of what he possesses. Despite hating this curse, he is compelled to wander to human habitation. He approached the SCP Foundation in hopes they could kill him.
  • Has given advice to those who play Chess with Death; don't, and hope you do not win. After dying in some war, the Brothers Death claimed him and he challenged them to a game. He won against the Small Death, the Great Death and the All-Death, and they cursed him with a meaningless eternity. Bill and Ted, having beaten and befriended their version of Death, naturally pitied his state. As did Skips, who has his own experience with Death.
  • Avoids the many versions of Death in the Pantheon. It should be noted that most don't hold anything against them. Death of the Endless wonders if he'd get along with Hob Gadling, and Lord Death believes his punishment was cruel. Shockingly Dhuum feels bad about his state since he's about keeping death permanent and believes the Three Brothers have brought shame upon Deaths everywhere through their punishment. Death the Nephilim was curious about the old human he couldn't slay. Given he helped the Hunter pass on upon learning he sold out the other survivors for nothing, he pities the old man and wants to help him die.
  • While he doesn't have much to fear from the various reapers, other Deaths were not so merciful to the old man. Chief among them was the Regular Show Death, who's the God of Chess with Death. Many believe that he was one of the Three Brothers, sick of losing so often that he struck big against him. That Death isn't responding to these claims, but SCP-1440 certainly believes he is. The Death from Final Destination is likewise infuriated, as is Nekron due to being repulsed by the very idea of immortality.
  • Possesses Complete Immortality, and wishes to rid himself of it. It is for this reason why he entered the Trope Pantheon, however, this backfired as the Death Is Cheap nature of the pantheon makes kill himself even harder. Beerus tried to erase him, and while there was some initial success he popped back into existence shortly afterwards. The desire to die was so strong he requested Lord English slay him, believing his ability to destroy universes and ghosts would be enough. While it could have been, English decided to be cruel to and spare him. This, and his evil, destructive nature, has led him to despise the cherub.
  • He works well with the other death seekers in the Trope Pantheon, those who hate their own immortality. He is sympathetic towards Fujiwara no Mokou and Scathach, who hoped his curse could be used to spare them from eternity. His curse hasn't affected them though. Feels bad for the utter agony Czeslaw's immortality has given him, and Kenny's random deaths.
  • Recognizes a lot of himself in Zeref; the two are cursed with Complete Immortality and possess an aura that causes cataclysm-an "Instant Death" Radius for Zeref, and a Walking Disaster Area for 1440. However he disagrees with some of his more evil actions and goals. Similar feelings are expressed towards Albedo Piazzolo and Kessler. Despises AM because of his desire to inflict fates worse than death.
  • Because of his nature as a Walking Disaster Area, he is forbidden to enter the House of Technology. Compulsion to wander leads him to rarely stay in his temple, which for safety purposes doesn't allow visits by other gods more than an hour long. He is trying to dampen his destructive nature by working with the Spring Sprite, putting him at odds with the Firebird. He opposes Randall Flagg due to being a malevolent Walking Disaster Area that enjoys his destruction, and pities the official god of this trope, Nathan Drake.
  • Condemned to wander, a man without a country. He suffers a fate similar to AZ, however the former isn't cursed to cause disaster but mull over the guilt of firing the Ultimate Weapon 3000 years ago. The two have met, sharing a drink. Samurai Jack understands his state considering he's been left to wander long after he should have died. In spite(or rather, because) of his condition, he despises Dr Weil. Spent wandering the ruined world for a century due to his monumental sins, he is angered that Weil has not use the opportunity to realize the error of his ways and has instead become even more depraved. While SCP-1440 could have easily let himself become numb, he chooses to still care about others.
  • Proud of Harry Potter for realizing that being Master of Death means accepting that it is an inevitability, something he wish he knew back when he was mortal. Disappointed of Voldemort for never realizing this and committing atrocities to achieve immortality, eventually becoming a broken thing in Limbo.
  • He felt a strange sort of connection to the Scarlet King, though he does not know why. It's believed that he is one of the seven destined to assist in slaying the Scarlet King and that his immortality was granted to him by the three brothers of Death to slay the Scarlet King.

  • In England sometime at the turn of the century, there lived a newly-widowed woman named Lucy Muir. Tired of living with her in-laws, she decided to move to a seaside cottage in Whitecliff-by-the-Sea with her daughter and her maid. There, she decided to rent it despite objections by her agent that the cottage is haunted by the ghost of seaman Captain Daniel Gregg. Sure enough, when the ghost initially attempted to frighten her on the first night, she refused to be scared off. Captain Gregg would soon come to admire her spunk and, to make it possible for her to afford to stay in the house, decided that she would write a memoir of his life. When Lucy visited a London publisher, she also impressed a famous author of children's books, Miles Fairley, which prompted Daniel to leave her to live her life by telling her that her interactions with him were just a dream. By the time Lucy died of old age, however, Gregg reappeared to reach out to her own ghost, walking hand-in-hand with her out of the front door and into the afterlife.
  • The two continued walking until they came across Malcom Crowe and Cole Sear, who had just found out about another story involving a living person interacting with a deceased one. They arrived to tell them that they are now gods in the Pantheon. Lucy, curious about the whole Pantheon thing, asked Malcolm to explain what it’s about while they are walking on their way to the Pantheon’s gates. When they approached their destination, both Daniel and Lucy had been deified. Since then, both Daniel and Lucy have been close to Cole and Malcolm, with Lucy thanking them for helping to bring them there.
  • Their temple is a recreation of Gull Cottage which, like the original, is placed near a cliff by the seaside, with a monkey puzzle tree being planted near the front. At Lucy’s request, her daughter, Anna, and her maid, Martha, were also brought in as their heralds.
  • Their friendship with Cole and Malcolm led to them being introduced to others who can communicate with the dead. They get along fine with Sissel and Missle, who are able to communicate with the recently departed and continue doing so after bringing them back to life by altering their fate. Though with Yomiel, it's stranger as for most of the story he's stuck in a cycle between life and death though he was declared legally dead after being pierced by a Temsik meteor fragment and is able to hold conversation with others normally. They also met up with and befriended Norman Babcock and Agatha Prenderghast after learning about the former’s ability to see and interact with dead people.
  • Lydia Deetz would often come by to visit Daniel and Lucy in their temple after hearing about her situation of moving to a house that’s haunted by a ghost, which reminds her of her own situation. Plus, she finds Captain Gregg to be as interesting of a ghost to hang out with as the Maitlands back in her home world, something that the two appreciate. Their relationship with Beetlejuice is complicated, however. While they do find him funny at times, Captain Gregg finds himself disgusted whenever he sees the Ghost with the Most trying to flirt with Lucy.
  • However, the couple is also aware of those who have a pretty hard time with ghosts and would try their best to help them. When Luigi found out that another ghost had ascended in the Pantheon, he was initially fearful of meeting up with Captain Gregg, but he would end up tolerating the ghost after Lucy came to help clear the plumber of any misunderstandings. Lucy also feels sorry for Carol Anne Freeling and how her family was tormented by evil spirits. She has become a sort of maternal figure towards the girl, who ends up enjoying hanging out with her and Captain Gregg more often than not and finds that ghost to be a nice change of pace from the ones she is used to.
  • Lucy became good friends with Jill McBain, whom she sympathized with after hearing about her determination of making her deceased husband’s dream come true. Likewise, Jill respected Lucy for her decision to live her own life in a manner that she chooses.
  • Lucy had a hand in helping to write a memoir based on Captain Gregg’s seafaring adventures titled Blood and Swash, so it was a matter of time before they both found out about another one that involved Captain Ahab and his quest to find Moby Dick. Granted, it’s unlikely that they’ll be allies anytime soon, given that his mind is on his vengeance towards the whale, but they’re still somewhat fascinated with his adventures nonetheless.
  • Whenever he’s not around with Lucy, Captain Gregg would try to meet up with other sea captains other than Ahab. He often hangs around with Davos Seaworth as they can be seen exchanging stories of their lives as mortal humans. He thought he would also be acquainted with the Flying Dutchman as well given that they are both ghosts of seafarers, but ultimately finds him annoyed with the latter’s antics. He seems to be on better terms with Kunkka as he’s interested in the Admiral’s journey with the vessel that he used to captain. Being one of the more benign ghosts residing in the Pantheon, even the Ghostbusters would leave him (and Lucy) alone. It’s not like the couple haunts or harms people in any way.
  • Given her experiences with ghosts, Lucy is one of several human deities who isn’t afraid of visiting the House of Ghosts. Some particular residents of that house that she and Captain Gregg are on good terms with are Casper the Friendly Ghost and Danny Fenton. However, there are some nastier ghosts that they don’t like, such as King Boo and Dark Danny (granted, Lucy is just a mere human being with any combat experience). Fortunately, they have Luigi and Danny Fenton to take care of their respective threats. From Danny, they have also learned about another ghost named Vlad Masters and his infatuation towards Maddie Fenton. Given their experience with Miles Fairley, both of them knew better than to hang out with him, with Captain Gregg finding Vlad to be as bad of a “perfumed parlor snake” as Fairley.
  • The two decided to meet up with Victor, Victoria, and Emily upon hearing about them being another instance of a human falling in love with an undead person. They feel sorry for Emily about hearing about her tragic love life, but are surprised to find out that she would remain on good terms with Victor and Victoria despite the latter two being a married couple.

    Decim 
Decim, God of Afterlife Antechambers
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4646f2aef39faf573f6d77d271c652de.jpg
  • Theme Music: Flyers; Last Theater
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His magical eyes or a set of dummies
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Psychopomp, Magical Eyes, Exotic Eye Designs, The Comically Serious, Deadpan Snarker, Sharp-Dressed Man, Mystical White Hair, The Bartender, Supporting Protagonist, Artificial Human, The Stoic (Unless Otherwise)
  • Domains: Arbiters, Bartenders, Stoicism
  • Heralds: Nona, Clavis
  • Allies: Anubis, Chen Stormstout, Moe Syzlak, Sans, King
  • Odd Friendship: Plain Doll
  • Opposes: Cthulhu
  • Opposed by: those who have a negative viewpoint of humans
  • Decim owns a mysterious bar known as the Quindecim and he, along with a few other arbiters there, have a rather unconventional way of determining what happens to a pair of souls after they die. The arbiters have the memories of those who died stored in their eyes (via crosses in their pupils, though the memories are eventually gone). After the souls play a different kind of game, the souls are either reincarnated or sent to "the void".
  • Given how death works within the Pantheon, Decim's primary job of judging souls hasn't happened as often as it did originally. If a couple of deities were to end up in the House of Life & Death by some circumstance, there is a possibility of them ending up in the Quindecim to play a game at Decim's suggestion (regardless of if they want to or not), but that's about it.
  • Despite not having the best understanding of human emotion on a complex level, he has acknowledged humans who had a full life. This did not go over well with deities who believe that there is nothing special about humans.
  • Even though he and Eiki Shiki are tasked with judging souls and determining their fate, the two have very different ways of going through it. Decim has his guests play some sort of game and the memories get revealed gradually whilst Eiki Shiki has the ability to judge somone as either "Black" or "White". Given that she wants to ensure the best out of those already living, she has issues with Decim's stoicism. She is aware of Decim acknowledging those who lived full lives and the fact that he is capable of showing emotion, though she's trying to make sure Decim is fully empathetic when it comes to judging souls together.
    • As far as those related to the afterlife are concerned, both Decim and Anubis are seen having friendly conversations with each other (though Anubis feels that Decim is a bit strange in some aspects).
  • There have been instances of Decim using a device to make something happen during the judging process between the souls. No one is certain as to whether or not it works outside of his bar.
  • Whenever he isn't determining the fate of two souls that have just died, Decim serves as a bartender who is known for serving some excellent drinks and is suggested to be a good cook (though occasionally, other gods who are skilled cooks have offered to prepare some food something whenever he has free time; it surprised him a little at first, but doesn't have issues with such). He gets a few frequent customers during these instances. Despite the eccentricity of these guests, Decim doesn't really mind that much.
    • On occasion, Decim can be seen having conversations with fellow bartenders such Moe Syzlak. Whether or not a joint bar will happen remains to be seen, but it's not likely to happen given their own individual commitments outside of bartending (and Decim probably being the most unusual out of them, which hasn't gone unnoticed by the others; they still like Decim's bartending skills, though).
    • One of his most frequent bartender aids comes from Chen Stormstout, who is not only a skilled cook, but also a solid crafter of drinks. They are known to exchange drinks with each other in their free time.
  • Decim decided to make a visit to King's bar after hearing about it. Since King is just as capable of making good drinks as he is, Decim and King have been seen talking to each other exchanging drinks with each other. Every do often, one of them will visit the other's bar in their freetime to have a quick conversation.
  • Sans, having heard of another bar within the Pantheon, decided to drop by to see what it was like. The skeleton struck up a conversation with Decim and remarked that Decim judging human souls was not exactly different from Sans judging (or at least determining) if humans have a good heart or not in the Underworld. The two have become friends as a result, with Sans frequenting the Quindecim whenever Decim isn't busy (even if Sans' puns completely fly over Decim's head).
  • Owns a lot of mannequins, presumably so that he can remember people who have lived fulfilled lives to some extent. It's believed that he asks the Houses of Craft and Costumes to design costumes based on said guests for the mannequins.
    • It came as a bit of a surprise to him when he found Plain Doll since she happened to be a (sort-of) living mannequin. They've actually gotten along since then and because both are capable of showing emotion in spite of appearing emotionless.
  • In what can be considered as a slightly dark bit of irony given what he is meant to judge, Decim is actually made of souls that have been sent to the void. A few deities know about this, and it hasn't gone unnoticed by those who want souls for personal gain.
  • Some have been wondering where this "void" that Decim talks about leads to. Guesses have ranged from hell itself to some sort of nothingness to something far worse. He hasn't responded on the matter.

  • Refugees from Skogr, Rook leads his people in a journey to Abberang from a Dredge invasion. However, in the middle of their journey at Boersgard, a city under siege under the dredge led by Bellower. Under the plan of a Mender named Juno, he and his daughter Alette has a silver arrow that could bring hope in defeating the Sundr. However, one of them was killed by Bellower after firing the shot and after his defeat, they were given a viking funeral and arriving in the afterlife.
    • The one who survives would arrive to the Pantheon later and the two are reunited, as father and daughter.
  • They express a bit of relief of seeing day and night for a long time ever since the sun stopped moving.
  • The two are surprised of seeing the pantheon of the Norse gods due to some striking resembles to the now dead gods of their world.
    • That said, they don't like Loki and his children who would bring the end of the world as their world was threatened by the "Darkness" that nearly consumed it and Jormungandr resembling the Serpent that could destroy entire mountains and was destined to devour the world.
  • The two come across another bunch of vikings known as the Lost Vikings, who are "lost." Alette found them to be rather amusing since they are not like the warriors in her world and found them to be goofy.
  • Because of the world they live in, they had to take some priority in survival over morality even if it is against their own judgement. They can sympathize and respect those who had to make the tough choice if their caravan were to survive.
    • Rook shows some sympathy to Joel as he would do the same thing like him if he were to lose his daughter and had to make a choice that would sacrifice anything.
  • Rook has always feared losing his daughter when he lost his family to the winter since childhood and his wife. Such fear became reality should she fall to Bellower, in which he was broken by it to the point of nearly killing himself when he charged to a horde of dredge all by himself.
    • While it will not happen again and Alette is still alive in the Pantheon, he still wants to protect his daughter and he pay some respects to some who grief over the lost of their child.
    • As a result, Rook shows some sympathy and respect to parents who had lost their child.
  • They thought that Egil somehow manage to ascend into the Pantheon, only to find that it is a man with metal armor, unlike a dredge. The machina is intrigued that there is a human (or Hom in his case) boy that is named after him, though he is curious about how much time his life was in peril.
  • Alette has been training in archery so that she could be a hunter like her father, unlike other girls who follow the traditional roles. She has considered training other girls in ways of archery since she was taught by her motherly figure, Oddleif, and have found a few girls that could help with the class.
  • They once considered shooting a Colossus when they mistaken it for a dredge. However, when the two found that there are various kind of Colossi and the fact that they are larger than even Bellower, they reconsidered.
  • The two found that there are other "Horseborn" in the Pantheon, in which they look completely different from them. They note that some are not very aggressive and savage unlike the Horseborn that has pillaged and attacked other humans.
  • Though Alette is a capable archer, she doesn't wish to harm humans or varls that aren't in the Pantheon. However, when she puts on her hood, she will not hesitate to shoot!

Quasideities

Giovanni and Campanella, Divine Patrons of the Afterlife Express

  • Giovanni used to be a lonely boy who spent his after-school time working to provide for his poor family. His mother was ill and his father gone on a long fishing trip (and rumored to be a criminal much to Giovanni's chagrin). His classmates bullied him for his situation, though he had a good friend in Campanella. One night Giovanni went out to buy milk for his mother, but after another bout of teasing from his schoolmates he ran off to a nearby hill where he gazed at the Milky Way. Then, he suddenly found himself inside a train with Campanella and they rode off into the stars. They saw many strange places and met many kinds of people, eventually realizing that the train they were in was meant to transport the dead to heaven (or rather, their idea of heaven). It was soon revealed that Campanella had sacrificed himself to save a boy from drowning, so he ultimately left for his true heaven, while Giovanni was sent back to his life with a new perspective on things.
  • Later in his life, Giovanni was reminiscing on Campanella and their adventure together, when suddenly he found himself once more aboard the galactic train. Despite the implications, he was pretty accepting of it and looked foward to seeing his best friend if possible. His wish was granted sooner than he expected as Campanella also turned out to be on board, having missed Giovanni for a long time. Then to their surprise, there was an announcement that the train would stop for an indefinite time at a place called the Pantheon while it went through maintenance. The two made the best of it by exploring the new location, starting with the other trains directly in their vicinity. They were astounded that there was one who could talk: Thomas the Tank Engine. Thomas identified them as the new arrivals he had been told about and offered to take them to the Main House, which had summoned the two friends. So they did, and upon arrival they were granted godhood over the Afterlife Express, after their famous adventure. This was astonishing to them, though Giovanni was also pleased as this meant he could be with Campanella forever. Campanella, on the other hand, had to make sure he could still see his mother in his heaven whenever he wanted. He relented once it was clear he could.
  • Their temple is a replica of the train. It couldn't very well be the real thing, or else what would become of the dead in their world? Although, the Pantheon (specifically the House of Life and Death) seems to be the "main stop", being the place where the train gets maintenance and such, so it's not like it's never around. A limited number of deities at a time is allowed to board it for an entire circuit. Currently, tickets are acquired by winning at special games Decim sets up in his bar. Giovanni and Campanella are the only ones allowed to board any time they want. But in the meanwhile, the replica they have for a temple also serves as a proper train in its own right, one that travels between the Pantheon's various train stations. Best of all, the two boys are the ones in control of it.
    • By the way, Giovanni and Campanella's relationship with Decim is perfectly friendly, though they don't exactly hang out (Decim runs a very adult-looking bar so it feels inappropriate for the two boys to spend too much time there). Still, Decim holds the two in high regard; Campanella for ultimately feeling fulfilled and holding no regrets despite his short life, and Giovanni for committing to life with a new vigor as a result of his adventure and resolving to be of use to others. It's the kind of thing that makes Decim elicit a rare smile.
  • Being strongly related to trains, Giovanni and Campanella's ascension was well-received by Ryotaro Nogami (aka Kamen Rider Den-O) and the ToQger, with these Toku heroes being highly protective of the young boys. They also praise Campanella's actions in sacrificing his life to save someone and Giovanni's decision to follow his example for the rest of his life. Even if the concept of a train with the sole purpose of carrying the souls of the dead into the afterlife is a little spooky to them. Though, Ryotaro did deal with a soul train once; it was corrupted by an evil Kamen Rider and he helped put it back to normal. The notion that something similar could happen to Giovanni and Campanella's precious train makes him keep an eye out for it, in case certain evil deities want to use it for their ends. Giovanni and Campanella, for their part, think these heroes are really cool and like to follow their exploits.
    • There's a similar rapport between the two boys and the Frontier DigiDestined, thanks to the latter's tendency to travel with the help of Trailmon, train Digimon that come in many varieties. Giovanni and Campanella's relationship with the DigiDestined is more casual than with the Toku heroes due to being closer in age, though the two boys still think they're amazing in their own right. And besides that they like meeting new varieties of Trailmon, thanks to their often idiosyncratic personalities making them entertaining to interact with.
  • As two boys who dealt with mortality at a relatively young age, they are on good terms with Seita and Setsuko, two children who suffered a lot after losing their parents to war, before dying themselves. Giovanni's own family situation is fairly similar, with a father gone for who knows how long and a mother too sick to do anything, thus having to fend for himself and be the main bread-winner at a young age. The more mature Seita understands this pretty well and is something of a big brother figure for Giovanni. Setsuko meanwhile is just happy whenever she gets to play with the two "kitties", as she thinks of them much to Giovanni and Campanella's chagrin, but they can tolerate it since she's young.
  • They are anthropomorphic cats, but they don't necessarily identify as such and don't hold a particularly close relationship with the House of Felines, although Bastet considers the two to be under her protection regardless. Ironically it is rumored that their original creator disliked cats. Make of that what you will. They found a few feline deities to be interesting though. One example is Catbus, whose nature as an Animal-Vehicle Hybrid is curious to the boys. Catbus meanwhile senses a deep spirituality in the boys (due to their adventure, natch), so they are of interest to him.
    • And there was one time the famous Tom and Jerry brought one of their chases on board their train-temple, and all sorts of shenanigans ensued. Giovanni and Campanella managed to get them to calm down, and Tom had a near-panic attack upon realizing they were the Afterlife Express deities. Turns out this was because of a Near-Death Experience of his where he took an elevator to heaven and had a similar journey; he was scared the train would put him through the wringer again. Giovanni and Campanella simply revealed the train's nature as a replica and talked about their own adventure in the afterlife, which calmed Tom down. Ultimately, Tom seems to regard Giovanni and Campanella as little brother figures to be protected. Jerry doesn't pay much attention to them, but appreciates that the two boys are more likely to hide him from Tom than eat him.
  • The Undine Akari Mizunashi was interested to hear about two cat-boys who went on a big adventure on an Afterlife Express; it reminded her a lot of her friend Cait Sith, the cat spirit who was the conductor of a similar train that only cats were allowed in. Giovanni and Campanella have never heard of this Cait Sith, but think it could be interesting to meet him at some point. They are happy to be friends with Akari and her friends anyway, since they are very nice girls who see beauty in most things in life.
  • They attend Elysium Academy, like most young deities in the Pantheon. Giovanni was shunned from his classmates back in his world, however Elysium Academy has a large collection of rather decent young folks attending and they largely treat Giovanni right and include him in their activities, and see him as noble for working hard for his family. There are some bullies of course, and they sometimes make Giovanni miserable, but their behavior is generally not tolerated. When Giovanni and Campanella attended their first school festival in the Pantheon, they made two, rather unusual, friends in particular: Zen and Rei. As a death god, Zen could sense that the two boys were acquainted with the afterlife, which he told Rei about. Given that Rei spent a time wandering around while being Dead All Along, she feels a kinship with the cat boys. The two find it weird that they only ever seem to see the couple during festivals, but don't pay it too much mind.
  • They also made friends with Cole Sear, a boy capable of seeing the dead, which was fascinating to hear about for Giovanni and Campanella. Cole Sear in turn thinks the idea of a train that carries the dead is pretty cool. Campanella is also somewhat close with Cole's co-deity Malcolm, on account of both of them having been Dead All Along (although unlike Malcolm, Campanella was aware of being dead; he simply never made it clear to Giovanni at the time). Campanella knows how important it is to be satisfied with one's life before passing on, so he's glad Malcolm managed to do so even as a ghost.
