  • 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 Death is that it isn't that active. With so many death deities, it is content with idly-running things. But once it finds someone who rigged the system... well that being was probably better off dead.
  • Death's presence was first known after a string of unusual deaths. Despite confirming that they are indeed freak accidents, some persistent detectives were still not sure about these findings and decided to investigate the deaths further. Checking the corpses of these victims, it looked so gruesome, the deified doctors would estimate it would take a long time to restore them to what they normally look when they get a Pantheonic resurrection. Those with the ability to see what happened at a crime scene (or are very observant) were baffled by the amount little things that had gone wrong (like various fail-safes of machines failing all at once or hanging objects that came off loose, seemingly at random). In addition, most of the victims had "visions" or recently visited the House of Prophecy, being reported to have avoided a different death than the one they ultimately had. It was only after various death gods had sensed the presence of one of their own kind did the Court of the Gods requested its staff to investigate the matter further.
  • Unusual amongst personified Death entities is its lack of a physical form, with its presence usually indicated by a gust of wind, a dark sinister shadow, or a random movement of an object. There are reports that it has taken the form of a giant cloud of smoke or an elderly Black man in a gray suit note , although both reports have not been fully confirmed in its original world's main timeline. There are also reports from various dream walkers of its true form being that of an Eldritch Abomination composed of shifting bones and corpses, which like other reports has not been fully confirmed. Not even other death deities can physically see this Death. Much of the information about its habits and relationships (like its allies and enemies) comes from word-of-mouth and observations, as its lack of a corporeal form is obviously unable to articulate its opinions.
  • Since it can't be seen, some people had a hard time believing that this is indeed Death at first, until they encountered its plans for themselves. When a group of people manages to survive Death's design, it will create a new design or list based on who was supposed to die first (as well as the people whose lives the survivors intentionally or unintentionally saved via Butterfly Effect). It would then kill the survivors one by one, usually starting with those who avoided death the earliest. You can however skip Death's kill order by saving someone (or yourself) from getting killed, after which it would move on to the next person on the list. Once it is finished going through all the people from the list, it would loop back to try and take out the remaining survivors until all of the missed deaths have been fulfilled. And no, you cannot remove yourself from the list prematurely by taking your own life, Death would literally prevent you from doing that until your time comes. Despite the hopeless odds, there are ways to "permanently cheat" Death and get yourself off the list:
    • The first method is to bring a new life into the world, which is to say a survivor who avoided death must give birth to a new child that wasn't meant to exist in the original timeline. Doing so would not only invalidate its current kill list but also the death plans of all people alive, as Death would need to make a new list to account for the new life. And as a gesture of mercy to the new parents, they are spared from its violent wrath for the time being. This method has not been used by any of the survivors, although an earlier attempt to test this theory prove fruitless as the subject being tested was never on Death's kill list.
    • The second method is to actually die and then get revived, as the first death counts as fulfilling the Death list and the revive counts as a new life. Contrary to an earlier report, Death actually holds no grudge against those who have the powers or skills to revive people (as in it never goes after them to stop the revive from happening). It just has a huge problem with people trying to avoid their intended time of death. By extension, Death has no problem with the whole "Death Is Cheap" policy of the Pantheon, although it does greatly inconvenience the entity having to work longer to write and rewrite a new Death plan to account for the revived person (hence why it only focuses on those who escape their demise and leaving the usual reaping in the Pantheon to the other death gods). Only two survivors have managed to escape Death this way; although there are conflicting reports of them meeting their demise anyway, it is one of the methods that has been confirmed to have worked in the main timeline of its original world.
    • The third method is by taking the life of someone who was not on Death's kill list. When a survivor's time is up but killed someone who wasn't meant to die, the former would take the victim's remaining lifespan and the latter would take up the place of the survivor from its list. This is also proved to have worked for one or two survivors, although it didn't pan out for them in the long run as the victim they killed had a very short lifespan anyway. This method is a game changer for deities who are both willing to kill and wish to avoid Death's brutal plans altogether. Heroic deities as well as those who don't or rarely die, have taken some protective measures from those who wish to harm them or other people for their lifespans. Note that the two latter methods can only work for one survivor and  don't invalidate its current list for other survivors.
  • Being infamous for its increasingly brutal and elaborate deaths, this version of Death's confirmation and induction into the Pantheon was met with relative fear from many, especially those who have cheated death. The crusader knight Antonius Block, who managed to defy his Grim Reaper twice to save himself and others, is very weary of the entity since he knows this one can't be stalled by a mere chess game. Its arrival was also not welcome news to those who suffered horrifying deaths. The Happy Tree Friends, who frequently brutally die in various accidents, not unlike this Death's victims, as well as The Franchouchou Girls whose members largely died in accidents, have collectedly feared for their lives. Nervous wrecks, like the socially-awkward girl Hitori Gotoh, and paranoid people are all afraid of being killed in horrible ways and having to see everything as a danger to them, even if they know they can be revived again in the Pantheon. Fear, the personified emotion, is on the same scared boat, as its job is to avoid having its host come into harm by everything. Those who have studied Death's design had to reassure people that as long as they don't avoid their initial deaths or were saved by someone who has a vision of their impending deaths, then this Death would not come after them. That information still doesn't sit well with those people.
  • Deities speculate that it reserves its greatest hatred for those who have visions of the future. Those are usually the ones who can thwart its plans. It can't however kill those who have visions of the future whose time isn't up yet. But if some god had a vision and used their ability to repeatedly avoid their deaths, you better believe Death would be coming after them. And don't get any ideas of asking future-seeing deities for help or asking them to leaned their abilities, as the last person to do that in the Pantheon ended up being crashed by a collapsing temple in the House of Prophecy and Fate. This incident served as a warning from Death not to give other deities visions or information on how they are going to die. It prefers its victims to figure out its design by themselves.
  • While it is foremost a death entity, many of its habits and modus operandi are akin to slasher villains, only instead of a human, the killer is a sentient cosmic force. Evidence included having to perform glorified gory deaths on a list of teenagers and young adults, often targeting them at their most vulnerable, with victims can't physically fight back as the entity can't be killed. Death wasn't as unsubtle in its kills, as it first prefers to strike silently, but it increasingly became more focused on being more elaborate with its kills as more people avoided its plans. Maybe it likes its job a little too much. Death doesn't have a strong opinion of its "rivalry" with other slasher villains; they are free to kill whatever they pleased as long it was that person's time to die. Despite its unsubtlety, Death makes sure to cover its tracks to not put blame on itself, like making a death look like a suicide, a freak accident or using a major disaster to kill someone.
  • Our Death's reception among other death gods is a bit of a mixed bag. At first, they don't know what to think of a Reaper that acts like a gleeful serial killer, thinking it might be a malevolent force. They slowly warmed up to this Death after its possible motives were made aware to the public, that it is still a death entity doing its job making sure everything goes according to its plan. This Death, according to its peers, thinks not its place to tell how one does its job to its fellow death entities (like engaging with games against mortals instead of outright killing them), so they shouldn't judge on its methods either. Overall, this Death is more willing to ally and work with like-minded Death gods (like He from Regular Show, Dhuum, Malthael and Morpho Knight), who in their own ways are committed to their duties and want to end the aspect of cheating death.
    • Although from a different world, Death of the Endless considers this Death as one of her many underlings, given how powerful and respected she is. She doesn't exactly approve of Death's methods of claiming the souls of those who cheated it, given that she has a fondest of humans and is quite compassionate than most of her peers. Upon hearing its possible alternative human form, she hopes to one day convince this Death to take this form more often to gain more compassion of the mortals it is in charge with. Meanwhile, He from The Seventh Seal was one of its peers who initially saw this Death as an enemy, mainly disapproving due to its excessive violence and cruelty, which strongly opposes his impersonal (but also relatively sympathetic) views on mortals. Overtime, he realized they both don't like to be cheated, even having to cheat themselves to prevent those who cheated from winning, and they also like to reaffirm death's inevitability, only that they express this lesson to mortals in different ways. Since then, he had gain bit of respect of this Death, but not to enough for him to want to encourage its very petty ways.
    • Having dealt with younger mortals and came out on top, this Death looks down upon two death deities in particular. The first is Grim, the "Best Friend" of Billy and Mandy, who was bound to them after losing a limbo challenge. Grim thinks Death is a bit of a show-off with its kills, but secretly envies the entity for being able to kill teenagers with ease while he can't even reap two bratty little children. The second was the shinigami Rem, who was willing to let herself get killed to extend the life of a mortal (as they were prohibited from doing so). According to Rem, she should sense Death making a shit-eating grin upon learning that her efforts of saving her master Misa Amane were all for naught as she likely had killed herself in the end. Rem despises this Death just as much as she despises most humans, which is a lot.
  • For whatever reason, Death likes to leave hints on how someone would die. This could be in the form of a gist of wind, some perfectly placed scenery or the last picture from the survivors. Perhaps it just likes to toy with its victims first, knowing they would die anyway to do anything about it. It also likes to play music as clues, such as when it used "Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver to taunt the survivors of the plane explosion, as Denver also died in a plane crash. It is unknown if Death itself is a music fan, but it does like to use music a lot and it seems very knowledgeable enough to know the history behind songs and their artists. It also likes giving satanic-themed clues like such as having demonic imagery or using 666 in the scenery, implying it is some sort of a satanic force (although there is no word on its connections among other demonic deities just yet). All this information is useful if a potential survivor is going to look for signs of what's going to kill them, but they have to be observant to spot them.
    • There's an implication that Death itself can give out visions, such as the false vision one survivor had of a shopping mall exploding, which was used to give the last survivors a false sense of hope and place them where they are supposed to die. After all, if it likes to give hints, surely it would give a fake vision to someone just to troll them. This idea has yet to be proved however in its original world (since we never get Death's side of things). There's no solid answer yet on how the survivors got their first vision in its original world (and it's not like Death would sabotage itself anyway). Potential visionaries would not worry about this implication though, as even if this is true, it rarely uses this ability in the grand scheme of things and doing so seems too easy even for the entity.
  • Death is speculated to have servants working under it. A Servant of Death can refer to any person, object, or item, usually appearing out of nowhere, that is used to cause the death of someone on Death's list. They can also willingly or unwillingly (in most cases) take part in these plans. In the Pantheon, some deities speculate some potential animals and objects who are willing to help Death fulfill its list. One such beings include the human-hating group of Birds, as one of its servants a group of pigeons were used to kill one survivor before note . Another possible servant is the tire simply known as Robert, as a different tire was used to kill someone before (not to take out a survivor but kinda close) and vehicles have been used to take out various survivors. So, a sentient non-speaking tire would be an ideal servant as it also has a history of killing people, by making their heads explode via psychokinesis.
    • On the willing side of accidental death causers, since he can also cause perfectly timed accidents to take out his targets, the hitman Agent 47 is also a possible servant, although their connection to this Death is unconfirmed other than both being good at death-related occupations. On the unwilling side of accidental death causers, having been responsible for a deadly accidental hit-and-run of child and feeling deep guilt for it, Trevor Reznick found himself being horrified after hearing about this Death's actions. Being told at the possibility of him being a death servant as well as a possible pawn to a higher being would sound like it would liberate him of some of the blame, but it doesn't make him feel any better for what he has done. He just hope someone doesn't die by his hands again as part of an ironic cruel joke from the entity.
  • It is a common theory that the entity is likely responsible for the majority of deaths caused by Light Yagami in Light's home universe or that Kira, Light's hidden identity, was bored one day and decided off random people from Death's home universe. In any case, Light found himself fascinated by this Death, as its creative kill methods and meticulous planning isn't so dissimilar to the wanna-be God's strategies of taking out its enemies. This is something his companion Ryuk also pointed out when he told Light about the entity, as the shinigami was also amused by Death's antics. Light hopes to make Death work for him in creating his ideal New World. Jigsaw a.k.a. John Kramer, defied Trap Master and Light's so-called mentor, is interested in this Death as well. Kramer can sometimes feel like he's being stalked by Death's presence for weeks note  and decide to research the entity further. If Death can spare people who are given a new life, then Kramer saw this as a justification to continue his testing on its would-be victims, since he thinks people who survive his traps deserve a second life that they would appreciate. Kramer is also interested in working with this Death if it can actually show its physical form to speak with.
  • The world where Death hails from is relatively grounded, which is to say, besides the existence of a living cosmic force and future-seeing visions, no other form of magic exists in that world. That doesn't stop this Death from passing judgment on more fantastical beings that may have cheated death in its new world. Still, the entity found itself having to question in which conditions would it allow to include someone on its list. For example, various Dragon Ball deities have cheated death several times; Death can give a begrudging pass if someone was revived by the Dragon Balls as the person had already died and is given a new life (as per the Revive "perma-cheat" method). It however draws a heavy line on preventing death via time travel (which has happened), seeing it as too similar to future visions for its liking. Death certainly despises the Z-Fighters in general (and also Beerus and Whis, as with their aid, they can fight off fate with ease). It just doesn't want to try and take them out at the moment knowing that the two Overdeities who watched over them (Beerus and Whis) would retaliate against for its actions if they found out.
    • Death also draws a heavy line on items that can induce immortality, a concept that laughs Death in the face. Eirin Yagokoro, the maker of the Hourai Elixir (which fully removes those who drink it from the life-death cycle), and Fujiwara no Mokou, who drank the Elixir, was one of those unfortunate to be on Death's list. The two were found in Eirin's temple by other Touhou deities, severely wounded and in a deep catatonic state, with the mess indicating it came from a freak accident while Eirin was making medicine and Fujiwara was visiting. It wasn't enough to kill them (and they would return to their normal state after several months) but by making them essentially Brain-dead for a while, the message was made clear on those who make or use such items just how much Death loathes them. That feeling is mutual for the two Hourai immortals after their discovery of their circumstance.
  • It is highly rumored that anyone who is Crazy-Prepared at anything thrown by Death is considered a Worthy Opponent of the entity. One mortal from its world, Clear Rivers, had managed to actively avoid Death numerous times and for a long time. It is speculated that it had to break its own kill list to give her a quick and inescapable death via a room explosion, just to stop her from helping the second group of survivors live. As such, it despises the likes of Skips, whose longevity came with the knowledge of how to deal with various supernatural situations. This Death wants Skips out of the picture to prevent others from prematurely figuring out its plan, but his Death counterpart from Skip's world already has dibs on his soul.
    • It also "worries" about potential people it would not like on its kill list. One example is Milo Murphy, the unlucky kid who manages to be prepared for any bad stuff that happens to him. Any of its traps would likely not work on this kid if it already has experience with avoiding accidents and the like. It also probably annoyed at supernaturally lucky people like Gladstone Gander, whose supernaturally gifted luck causes good things to happen to him, which makes it ineffective on Death's current kill habits. The good thing is that the two are not on its list yet, but it would need to have an extra clever should these kinds of people end up on its list in the future.
  • SCP-1440, an old man who gains his immortality by beating the Grim Reapers at cards, is one of the few people who welcome Death's hand. Death had tried killing him to prove a point about the inevitability of death. But for some reason, objects and whole settlements get destroyed before Death can use them to kill him, even accidentally killing other people in the progress. Even if the entity succeeded, the old man can shrug off any dangers that can be used to kill him, no doubt a curse placed by the Reapers he had beaten. It deeply frustrates the entity as the best thing it can do is to make a new design around the old man's travel plans to prevent other rifts from happening. Speaking of other anomalies, the reptilian monstrosity SCP-682 is one of the rare beings that managed to fully pissed off Death (if it can feel), as not only able to cheat death fairly easily (as it is quite un-killable) but that the alien claimed it can feel this Death's presence and had the absolute gall to taunt about its failure to finish off the alien. The only reason why Death doesn't continue to reduce 682 to smithereens as not arose suspicion from the Foundation that's trying to contain the alien. Funny enough, 682 is a bit of a fan of Death's works and thinks it should focus on taking out all of humanity instead of its petty revenge on those who defy its plan. To Death however, that is not an option as the entity's duties is to enforce its grand design in the cycle of life and death, not to bring a great imbalance to the universe.
  • The dark wizard Voldemort both fears and loathes Death, as his greatest fear is dying and would do everything that he could to keep death away from him. So much so that Voldemort split his soul and put them in Horcruxes and once tried to put his revived horcruxes Maximum Security to protect them, without much success. Our Death's response to this attempt was to create a massive fire in the Artifacts Library (where the Horcruxes currently reside), burning all the items and a living creature inside (while leaving the other Treasures intact). It also nearly killed Harry Porter as he was visiting the Artifacts Library, but not without reason; as not only is he a Horcruxes himself but has also avoided and conquered death on many occasions (like being unable to die when a killing curse was cast on him). This incident made Harry aware of this Death and although he is accepting of his own death back in his world, he doesn't exactly want to die a violent one in a situation he has no control over. He also wonders if this Death is related to the Death that The Three Brothers met, due to both Deaths having a dislike of being cheated and its cunning trickery in taking the souls who cheated it.
  • South Park has its own death deity, where instead of making traps, it just kills anyone it touches. Still, Kenny McCormick is largely apathetic to this Death, being used to receiving and remembering all of his deaths given by his world's reaper. Surprisingly, Kenny has never been on any of this Death's kill list, mostly because Kenny already knows he's going to die at some point that he doesn't try to fight it back knowing he's going to be resurrected again. Still, in the Pantheon, many deities point to this Death when Kenny dies in a very complicated and convoluted manner. It seems to have entertained itself by using Kenny as a guinea pig for its future traps, knowing his Resurrective Immortality would not actually impede on Death's current design.
  • Despite having no physical temple, an alarming amount of deities would pray that Death would take out other potential death cheaters as well. One such prayer was to take the life of Fecto Forgo, who despite losing its body and being reduced to just its soul is still alive and even turns itself into Morpho Knight by absorbing a butterfly. As the soul has already been punished in its original universe when it was defeated and its remaining pieces were absorbed by another being, Death counts this as a fulfilled death but would observe the being in case it does something that could cheat it again. Other set of prayers Death receives were for Bowser and Jean Grey; the former because he either keeps getting effectively killed and comes back to life or managed to survive something that by all measures should have killed him. The latter is on the same boat but her detractors say it's because some higher force is keeping her (and other superheroes like her) from dying. Death is interested in looking into these case, as the entity likely want nothing, not even the ones that lie beyond the fourth wall, to save people like them from death.
    • There are more death cheaters Death doesn't approve of. One example is Kratos, he once fought his way out of Hades (which doesn't count as a revive in its eyes), and has also been killed and revived at least two more times after that. Because the Ghost of Sparta was technically revived by the intervention of the gods in his world, Death begrudgingly left him alone and wait to deal with him until his actual time comes. Another example is Sun Wukong who just dodges Death's schemes to kill him. Wukong welcomes Death's challenge, continuing to try and trick the entity as he tries to maintain his immortality like he erased his own name from the Book of Life and Death to make sure he would never die. Death has also 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 be hard to kill as it is for him to stay dead.
  • The arrival of the survivors from Death's original world is something the entity had already anticipated. The visionaries, who served as the representatives of Proving Death's Unavoidability, as well as their fellow former survivors who acted as their heralds, were very weary upon learning of their world's Death's presence in the Pantheon. After all, one does not forget the horrifying deaths they have to witness or experience for themselves. However, as they have already fulfilled Death's list through their demises and the rift in its design has already been technically fixed in their world, then Death has no reason to become after them any longer. As long as they stay out of its way and not help any more people who happen to be on its current list, then they are safe from its presence, at least for now...

"You can't cheat Death. There are no escapes."

William Bludworth, while describing Death.

  • SCP-3812 used to be a normal African-American man called Sam Howell, who died in 1996. That was until he rose from his grave and disappeared. Initially it seemed like they had a Type-Green on their hand, but he proved impossible to contain. Whole nations started to blink in and out of existence, and a variety of chaotic events happened. What was weird is that the Hume levelsnote  remain unchanged, meaning reality was being altered in a way they weren't ready for. It was eventually concluded that he was ascending not to higher realities, but to higher narrative levels (so from a Show Within a Show, to the show, then Real Life then whatever may be beyond). And he suffered from schizophrenia, made worse by the input of a form of existence the human brain was never made for. Fortunately after a talk with himself he came to his senses, choosing instead to let the narrative of the SCP Foundation play out. He continues to explore and reach higher narrative levels, immensely powerful and incomprehensible but not malicious.
  • In the midst of a regular day in the Pantheon, several unexplainable occurrences took place. Straits of vegetation trailed across the deserts of the House of Nature, various explosions took place without warning, and entire Houses simply ceased to exist for a period of time. At the behest of the Main House, a Pantheon-wide investigation was held to find the Deity responsible for these events. It wasn't until Aurelion Sol discovered a new star in the pantheon sky that the culprit was found. The "star" was identified by the SCP Foundation to be SCP-3812. And with that, a sense of dread; there may be plenty of reality-bending Overdeities, but how many of those are capable of transcending the very narrative they exist in? A massive tower appeared in the Hall of Metafiction reaching parts unknown. The Moon God fictionalized 3812, but all that did was slow him down. Goku was about to push the Zen'o button. Even his own real life writer couldn't erase him, though they did argue. Fortunately Sam Howell made his intentions clear; he's not interested in controlling or destroying the Trope Pantheon. He's currently on his quest to reach higher narrative levels, but for now he wants to take a break and relax as he was interested in the Trope Pantheon. And yes, he's become aware of the writers contributing to it; he prefers not to ruin the project. He's been talking to (Insert Name Here) about it.
  • Suffers from a number of psychoses like difficulty determining reality from fiction, a second personality and general erratic behavior. He has made peace with his alter, and in his meantime has talked to Delirium of the Endless due to feeling a kindred spirit. Some feared this encounter; SCP-3812 has the ability to erase entire concepts from reality... aka tropes. This frightens Trope-Tan, and in all honesty she is still fearful of him even if he has decided to take a stance on neutrality. Sam chose to be honest about his intentions in that he wants to see if he can reach the pinnacle, that being Real Life itself, and maybe even see what's above it (ie: if the Simulation Hypothesis or something like it is true) but more so a means of exploration and understanding rather than any desire for power. He then constructed an ultimately humble temple, based on his old house in Louisiana. The SCP Foundation is still trying to work on a way of containing him, though he kind of gets it. After all, among his many impressive feats of reality warping, the remains of one of the anomalies he destroyed in his madness became SCP-239... yes, that 239. She's not sure how to feel about it and the Foundation would prefer they not communicate.
  • Comparisons could be made between Sam Howell and Jon Osterman. Once normal humans, they became reality warpers with a heightened perspective of reality. However, this perspective has not been good for their mental health; Sam has suffered schizophrenia and other mental disorders due to the input of different narrative levels, and being a Non-Linear Character depressed Manhattan because Prescience Is Predictable. SCP-3812 and Dr Manhattan conversed and opened up to each other about their experience, the latter noting he experimented with the fabric of reality but ultimately had a change of height. He also mused that the ability to reach higher narrative levels makes 3812 capable of understanding the structure of DC's metaverse, a mystery that alluded Dr Manhattan. SCP-3812 then looked on Giygas, and felt a bit better because as much as his ascension has induced Sanity Slippage, he has not been rendered as broken as Giygas. He holds pity for the alien even if he doesn't hold interest in destruction.
  • SCP-3812 has told Wiz and Boomstick it is not interested in a vs, let alone a DEATH BATTLE!, partly due to his "overexposure to narrative" has made it unable to accurately perceive the world, and is forced to alter reality to diminish the discrepancy between how it perceives something, and the way that something is in actuality. Also, partly because he would prefer not to cause collateral damage. Given that his ability to travel to higher narrative stacks would allow him to break out of a Death Battle simulation and into Wiz and Boomstick's location, and the Kayfabe video their live-action actors perform, it was a good call. Still, they gave him an idea; go up to Lord English and mock him that he may have killed his author's avatar, but he cannot and never will touch the Real Life Andrew Hussie. LE would go on a rampage afterwards, with Sam Howell being smart enough not to test his luck by being in firing range. Dhuum has been seething at him as well, since he cheated death and he knows he has absolutely no way of making him return to his grave.
  • Because of extreme potential for destruction, the GUAD has vested interest in trying to push his psyche into destroying all life. Kefka voiced disappointment that someone could go through a similar power and madness arc as him but not come to the same conclusion, so he has encouraged the GUAD to prove to Sam Howell that life is a pointless, tiny thing. Though the split personality pondered that the narrative they seek to destroy was one of trillions and they need not care, Sam Howell argued that even if it's meaningless fun, it still has potential for something fulfilling and that they have each other. While meditating on this Zamasu lunged at him, thinking he was distracted and wanting to slay a mortal who dares become a god. It didn't work and SCP-3812 mused "you're no god, you're the pantheon's Hate Sink and I think they would find this funny". Later on Zamasu was found trapped in a panel of one of Master Roshi's dirty magazines. He got out eventually because 3812 lost focus, and he is still utterly fuming about the humiliation.
  • Given that he was an African-American man, racists are generally nervous around him. Never mind that SCP-3812 no longer sees himself as human and has stopped caring about such petty concerns like prejudice, the fact he was still strikes fear into Moon Man and Col Benjamin that he'll turn them into cantaloupes should they so much as whisper the N-word in private. 3812's concerns, at least when he's able to focus enough to be in relative lucidity, don't involve anyone trying to steal his powers for their own because no-one has gotten close. The Father of the Homunculi is deeply jealous of Sam Howell since without even trying, he has obtained his own greatest desire; absolute freedom, even from the very laws of nature. Considering Father can't break the fourth wall, he doesn't comprehend what transcending narratives would really mean. Now aware of his existence in a Double-Blind What-If, Adam Dressler is bemused by what'd be like to go upwards into the setting of the Kaiserreich Hearts Of Iron mod and then OT.
  • For those wondering what Wiz and Boomstick were considering, they sheepishly considered him fighting The One Above All after He already turned down a fight with the Presence. It is worth noting that SCP-3812 is not intended to be The Omnipotent like TOAA and some would argue there are stronger beings in the SCP verse, though with his "narrative transcendence" the Top God of Marvel was intrigued. Interestingly, it's noted The One Above All is aware of "the storyteller", implicitly admitting He knows the real life Marvel writers are beyond even Him , which might have influenced His interest in SCP-3812. That, and The One Above All is often seen as a sort of Author Avatar, having first taken the form of Jack Kirby. He seems to relate to Sam Howell at any rate, stating "The mystery intrigues me. I know how you feel... let's solve that mystery together". Also, He has a Hulk of sorts, The One Below All, so 3812's DID might be relatable to Him.
  • Many characters have No Fourth Wall, but they tend not to treat it with any seriousness. SCP-3812 had an argument with an author and the awareness of his own fictionality within fictionality combined with being able to leave, well, he certainly wouldn't call it a laughing matter. Rick thinks SCP-3812 is pretentious since while he does like to do a nice wink to the audience once in a while, overindulging in Meta Humor and making it the plot of an episode is a pet peeve of his. Sam is somewhat amused by Rick's statements since while nowhere near the plot-manipulating powerhouse he is, he's pretty cunning when it comes to fighting these tactics, and he wants to see what he might do in a sequel to "Full Meta Jackrick". Mr Mxyzptlk is another Reality Warper who feels fourth wall breaks should be more done for fun than anything serious and thinks that Sam Howell should just try to have fun here; he's not living in what's often a Cosmic Horror Story, and he should see the Trope Pantheon as a way to relax.
  • One of the reasons why Rick thinks 3812's meta nature and the potential consequences of serious fourth wall breaks might be because he believes the show won't retain its integrity if it makes whole plots off of meta instead of keeping it to one-off gags and jokes. Taking it to heart, SCP-3812 decided not to "infringe" on Deadpool's profile gimmick of first person perspective profiles. For those wondering, Wade Wilson isn't going to go on a soapbox and call 3812's power "pretentious", though he has had bad experience with an evil version of himself who went on a tirade of omnicidal nihilism and Rage Against the Author because of his awareness of the fourth wall and thus supposedly being meaningless. The Crimson Chin, having dealt with that angst, has told 3812 not to worry too much about whether you're fictional or not; he knows his reality is a comic book but he still finds the motivation to do heroism within in. That said, there's still a good amount of nervousness from him and Deadpool due to how powerful he is.
  • For those wondering, Animal Man has been barred from talking to SCP-3812 by the SCP Foundation despite, or rather because of his Noticing the Fourth Wall. This is because his talk with Grant Morrison showed for all those who claim The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You, Sam Howell's "threat" to real life is entirely Kayfabe; no matter how powerful a fictional character is written, they can NEVER enter real Real Life. It's possible that the SCP Foundation is freaked out since it renders one of their SCP-001 proposals (ie; a plan to kill the real life writers and viewers) All for Nothing should they ever use it. White Face didn't get the memo as it sees potential to further freak out the audience due to SCP-3812's power to ascend through narrative stacks. It's something White Face became aware of after noticing that the Hall of Metafiction tends to move to wherever 3812 appears should he stay in one location for too long. Most of the other deities present would rather not provoke him, mostly out of fear for what he might do but also because they don't want to trouble his mind anymore. They observed how Monika went insane upon realizing her fictional existence and dealt with it by warping the reality of the game to her end, and 3812 is significantly more powerful than her. Sam Howell personally sympathizes with Monika since he's had similar existential crises upon his apotheosis.
  • Has somewhat of a soft spot for Neo and his allies, and the Mung Daal Catering. The latter are very much aware they have No Fourth Wall and rather than wallowing in existential crises, they take it casually. Given his own existential crises from ascending, he respects that... and even if he can't tell where they stack or fit on the narrative levels exactly, he still likes their show. For the former, he can respect their desire to be free from a simulation given his desire to ascend to a higher planes of existence. Due to his immense, and inherently meta/narrative-based power he's intrigued by those who can manipulate the plot and narrative. John Egbert has managed to get Unstuck from the narrative and is great at Retconjuration, plus he's one of Lord English's greatest enemies, so 3812 wants to see his powers develop. Another soft spot of his is Senua, since she hears voices and likely suffers schizophrenia which is a condition 3812 struggles with.
  • Given his power set and ability to rewrite reality Ahiru was nervous when she heard about SCP-3812, fearing he may have similarities to her wicked writer D.D Drosselmeyer. Fortunately Sam Howell has a soft spot for her, noting that she fought against her author because she didn't like the effect his angsty and tragic writing taste had on her reality, and fighting against him was admirable. Flowey and Sans are considerably more skeptical of Sam's intentions, noting that he reminds them of "the anomaly" (ie what's implied to be the real life player) and while their own experiences mean they understand his mental issues due to his higher awareness, there's a fear on what he might do, especially if he contacts "the anomaly". Additionally his narrative powers has earned him notoriety from the Discworld residents as the Theory of Narrative Causality is an accepted rule of physics that becomes putty in 3812's hands should he choose. The potential of these powers scared Master Hand too; it is tied to the link between the "imaginary" world and "the world beyond", but whatever abilities it has or higher state in reality it is linked to is child's play for this very, very powerful anomaly.
  • It's safe to say that almost everybody is relieved by SCP-3812's decision to remain mostly neutral and see the Trope Pantheon more as a curiosity to be observed and visit, rather than twist its narrative to his own desires. The Devourer has proven how dangerous narrative manipulation can be; he has reset the Epic Battle Fantasy universe multiple times, deleted people worlds and memories, and is capable of doing so to the extent of making the last game seem like a soft-reboot where memories of previous games were wiped away until its death, wanting a universe of complete, perfect order. Its death would have brought the Devourer to the real world to deal with (Insert Name Here), however SCP-3812 disagrees as he believes that "real world" would actually be the next level or two on the narrative stacks. The Devourer is in a mix of emotions towards Sam Howell; fear at a being that could do what he can but on a higher level, anger at what he sees as wastefulness for not using his powers for a greater purpose like he seeks, and morbid fascination of his abilities. He has been trying to reach out to the anomaly so as to convince him to agree with his worldview, but Sam doesn't share his concerns. This is, again, fortunate, as theoretically he could alter the Trope Pantheon's narrative to stack the deck in Grand United Alliance's favor via things like plot armor.
  • Come, the night stretches out before us and the red sun has set. A voice behind me beckons. Come.

  • Enemies: Tiamat (both of them), Nagash the Undying, Nekron, Zhaitan, 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 and Zhaitan.
  • 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 and Relatives. 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.
  • 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 and Phasmata.
"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."

    The Nameless God 
This island is My domain.
Those who wish to flee must earn their escape.
This is impossible. It will discover this.
What stands before it is a puppet. The puppet is My voice.
Find Me...

The Nameless God, Sovereign Lord of Souls (The Scarecrow, The lord of this island, The god of this island)

  • Opposed by: The Houses/Halls of Death and Postmortem, Aquatic Life, and Water and Moisture, The Oz Gang
  • “Envy is such a thing. A man envies his neighbor, whose wife is very beautiful. A lord envies a king, who commands nobles. A king envies a god, to whom all men must bow. And a god envies... a god envies what a god cannot have.” — The Old Man/Jaret, King of Storms.
  • In the world whose natural order is dictated by the existence of salt, there are two types of souls: Those born of salt live normal, fleeting lives but their life essence, salt, is slated to be reused throughout the cycle of life and death dictated by the sea. Those born of candlelight see and live life differently, but their being is in many ways ephemeral. Candlelit souls are by all intents and purposes gods or at the very least higher beings. There exists a god, one without a name gifted to him by humanity, who was once mortal but managed to attain great power typically associated with the divine. Yet he was born of salt and truly desired one born of light.
    • This god's life was miserable. Full of envy and hatred against other, true gods this being stole away their followers and prayers and left them in a dingy mausoleum to starve out and rot away and be forgotten. Meanwhile, in a desperate quest to attain a soul of light they manipulated the world into giving it human sacrifices, fooling many into sailing towards their doom on his domain, the Nameless Island. The place is shaped and changed by those trapped and soon dominated by this demon and it is granted some power resembling a soul of light, but the Nameless God is never satisfied for long and this fruitless quest and sad existence continues. The cycle would end when a particular Saltborn proved persistent enough to finally confront the lord of the island and put an end to their madness.
  • Surely, as a Pantheon goer, you've heard of the legends of a certain scarecrow? The creepy crucified corpse hanging over a pile of the dead. The one that speaks with a venomous contempt against this place, the shallow copy of its domain which serves as the throne for pretender gods and idols who will one day kneel to it. How the entire Pantheon will be made an example of, broken and bloody before its feet while gasping for the last vestiges of air and hope. It's a occurrence throughout the years, even going back to the olden days, and such stories became increasingly common as the Pantheon's war escalates ever so further. More fighters, more alliances, more battles, so on. The Scarecrow is the voice of the Nameless God, the sad remains of, and each time it appears it speaks with more apathetic disdain as it comments on the passing events.
    • At what point did the Nameless God came to the Pantheon besides the vague period of the Pantheon's "early days". What is known is that after his defeat by a certain Saltborn whom it trapped in his island the Nameless God, instead of potentially being freed from torment by truly fading away, was reborn in the Pantheon. At this point the god was weak and cut-off from sacrificed tribute he shouldn't have been able to do much... until he found out about the grand overarching war between good and evil and secretly gathered the unascended fallen into his domain through them being lost or otherwise killed at sea. Again, and again, and again. They wash ashore on his island, feeding him more power to get ever so closer to the power of those Candelit, while their memories of far-off worlds shape and build the landscape of the Nameless Island. Again, and again, and again. It was a steady pace at first until other Alliances and factions entered the picture. More participants equals more for the Nameless God to claim, and the island along with his power grew, potentially surpassing the point he reached back in his world. And yet, even after all that, he's still no closer to his goal of claiming a Candlelit soul than he was back then.
    • His presence was soon discovered when the Kraeken ravaged the Pantheon's waters and coasts and some gods, in trying to investigate their origins, managed to find the island. To the Nameless God's frustration they were unable to be truly claimed by him though as a consequence they are also truly unable to manifest in his domain. Only Overdeities have had a consistent amount of success pushing forth an avatar there, and even then they can't bring about true change in his world with those trapped ultimately being left to fend for themselves. Ironic then that for all the rants made at the Pantheon pushing forth "false" titles on those who aren't gods they, in some mysterious way, are also protected from him even if they remain relatively unchanged. Don't expect this so-called god to acknowledge this fact, though.
  • Hailing from a universe not unlike the Souls series the Nameless God inevitably caught the attention of the many gods from said world, or fit the moniker. Being a purely malevolent force that usurps entire pantheons he hasn't really won any favors towards them and the vitriol is mutual. Though his state is already pitiful, the Nameless God seeks to permanently snuff own Gwyn and his ilk's influence to substitute his own on top of claiming the entirety of the dying worlds they live on.
  • Ever one to and to further his folie de grandeur as a god this nameless monster reached out to various figures through offers of power and access to his island such as with Dr. Facilier, Queen Sectonia, Pontiff Sulyvahn and King Allant (for the latter, there's no doubt the god did so specifically to spite his existing enemies). Of course like with Jaret he plans on a more permanent stay for his supposed confidants. This even includes the first of whom he reached out to, the infamous sorcerer Shang Tsung, despite a rather mutual exchange of knowledge between their respective worlds involving souls and magic. Then again, considering how much of a conniving snake Shang Tsung is the supposed partnership wasn't to last though the Nameless God is confidant he'll be reaping his rewards first. Accounting for what happened when he, Nightwolf, and Fujin were sent back in time...
  • Despite deliberately using the overarching war to fuel his ceaseless cravings he still holds the Alliances' various leaders in contempt for their petty wars, regularly ranting about them to those willing to listen to his voice. Much of his hatred seems to be concentrated on Cosmos, YHVH, Lucifer, and Gaea the most. On the leaders' end they generally dismiss him and agree to seeing the Nameless God as what he really is: A pitiful madman confined to a little island. At the same time they still keep an eye on him as he is still able to disrupt their plans and the ambiguous connection between him and the Kraeken shouldn't be ignored as the latter has greatly ravaged some of the Alliances operations too. And it's very likely the two won't stoop to being a pest terrorizing mortals for long.
  • His machinations in sending lost souls at sea into a purgatory-like realm has not endeared him with the many gods and goddesses in the Houses of Death and Postmortem, Aquatic Life, and Water and Moisture. His relationship with the Kraeken, admittedly unclear it may be, hasn't helped his image that is built purely on terror and infamy. Of the many aquatic denizens Aquaman and Orm the Ocean Master really hate the Nameless God for that considering the havoc they wreck. Bryce Wayne aka The Drowned of the Dark Knights is of a different opinon, however.
  • The Radiance stands out among the other deities by taking the Nameless God and his actions as a truly personal offence rather than just brushing off as a pretender god or a cruel and monstrous being. Though, considering her backstory perhaps it's not a surprise why she despises him so much: In the kingdom of Hallownest she was a being who once ruled and was worshipped but had the entirety of her followers stolen away by the Pale King who then made sure she would be forgotten about. And she would of been had not a statue of hers was unearthed in Crystal Peak allowing her to unleash a devastating plague both as a punishment for their insolence. After piecing together the story for himself the Nameless God remarks how sad for a so-called being of her status to fall for such a low, mortal vice. Even if it isn't wrong, that's still rich coming from him.
  • When the Nameless God speaks through the puppet of the Scarecrow, what remains of his real body, he has a habit of referring to others as it. Often, he words his sentences in a way that is very detached, as though the Nameless God is merely observing them and not actually speaking to them. Consider it another sign as to how he views everyone and everything; utterly beneath him. Not once does he ever raise his voice in this form, though he tends to come very close to doing so when the subject of conversation shifts to the Saltborn that slew him for good before either escaping to the real world/afterlife or taking his place (the stories are quite mixed, you see). It's a different tale with the Nameless God's other body as every attack he does is punctuated by the bellowing screams of agony and/or anger, neither of which isn't without rhyme or reason.
    • And speaking of the Scarecrow, the Oz Gang isn't really fond of that puppet of his for drawing comparisons between him and their aptly named companion in the group. The Nameless God meanwhile hasn't acknowledged them, but the same cannot be said for Fiddlesticks and Jonathan Crane who are also monstrous scarecrows. As if his current list of allies wasn't bad enough, the Nameless God managed to be in good graces with them and have also been seen skulking around his island to torment the trapped fools.
  • Hypocritically, his hatred of the gods is especially prevalent against the likes of Sheogorath, Sigmar, Madoka Kaname, Dr. Manhattan, and even Bruce Nolan despite only having such powers for a limited time. It's speculated, but best not stated out loud, that it's envy over them getting a considerably better deal out of attaining such power while his gets to be confined to a cross for all eternity until the fated Saltborn put him out of his misery. On their end, Sheo thinks he's a bore while the rest are just not fond of his megalomania. Sigmar and Madoka in particular do not approve of him manipulating the various nations to go to war with each other thereby leading them to sending poor bastards for him to toy around with and break the wills of. The Nameless Gods shoots back he'll enjoy breaking them especially.
While they scurry to and fro, I am.
While they cherish their petty deities, idols, and false lords, I am.
While they fight their trivial wars, live and die for mortal kings and scoundrels, I am.
All priests of false gods kneel to Me.
All kings of empires great and small kneel to Me.
Life kneels to Me.
Death kneels to Me.

Ryuk, God of Shinigami

Intermediate Gods

Ammit, Goddess of Post-Mortem Non-Existence (The Devourer of the Dead, Eater of Hearts, Great of Death, Ammut, Ahemait)
Artist's interpretation of Ammit by Jeff Adams
  • 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 Fordragon
  • 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 Fordragon; 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 Otherness. 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.

    Death (Discworld
Death, God of Timekeeping Lifespans (The Stealer of Souls, Defeater of Empires, Swallower of Oceans, The Ultimate Reality, Harvester of Mankind, "Picker-Up of Unconsidered Trifles", Bill Door, Reaper Man)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: An Absurdly Sharp Scythe
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral, but leans towards Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Absurdly Sharp Scythe, Black Cloak, The Comically Serious, Reaper Of Souls That Make Death Pleasant, Dark Is Not Evil, Curry Lovers, Can Be Jerkish, But Very Benevolent, Kindhearted Cat Lover, All-Powerful Bystander, Different Perspective Of Time, More Emotional Than He Claims, Power of Rock, Creative Sterility, Beware the Nice Ones
  • Domains: Death, Compassion, Law
  • Avatar: Christopher Lee (animated version)
  • Allies: Rincewind, Terry Pratchett, Grenth, Rem, Death of the Endless, Death the Horsemen, Death the Nephilim
  • Enemies: The Auditors of Reality, Nekron, Merged Zamasu
  • Initially held the role of simply Death Tropes, however, came to believe this was too broad and asked for a new trope. He obtained this in the form of Death's Hourglass. After all, he has a whole collection of hourglasses that represent people's lives, including his own which lacks sand and is indestructible. He also has the Death of Rats to help him out.
  • Death has a...complex relationship with his work. On the one hand, he takes it very seriously and is quick to tell off anyone who tries to get him to budge that there's a great burden present when you alter the fate of even one person. On the other hand, he is compassionate and even knows some social graces as he interacts with mortals during his "special assignments." For this reason, he talks with Rem from time to time discussing the morality of their actions, as well as others actions and what overall purpose humanity serves to them.
  • While he can be crusty at times, he's one of the few truly benevolent deities in his universe. He even took over the role of Discworld's Santa Claus for a bit. People who's time is soon hope he is the Death they face. This compassionate nature has led him to get along with other good-hearted Deaths, particularly Death the Nephilim due to how he actively helped save the world. Nekron, however, believes he is a disgrace to reapers due to protecting life rather than desiring its annihilation.
  • He has a granddaughter known as Susan Sto Helit through his adopted daughter Ysobelle and his former apprentice Mort. The Doctor was bemused at this, as he is also an ancient and powerful figure with a granddaughter named Susan. The two have an amiable relationship.
  • Members trying to start the Apocalypse are careful to stay away from using this death, as the last time they tried, he stated he had to ride out, but it didn't specify who he would ride against.
  • Claims to be above emotion, but considering his relationships with his (adopted) daughter and granddaughter, nobody is fooled. Has had to claim the life of his creator. It turns out even Death can cry.
  • Isn't happy to see that the Auditors of Reality ascended, at all. The bureaucratic entities couldn't tolerate his Loophole Abuse and breaking rules to make things better, or his supposed softness towards mortal life. They tried to replace him with the psychotic Death of Humans, making it clear that a benevolent death is a much better idea. He has nothing but contempt for Merged Zamasu, as he represents everything that can go wrong with giving someone the position of a god. Zamasu opposes him because he stands in the way of his desire to exterminate all mortals.
  • Has something of a fondness for Philosophy, and often visits that house to debate things such as ethics, metaphysics and mortality. To that end, he can often be irritated by Dr. Manhattan on his bad days. While Death approves of Manhattan's Thermodynamic Miracle view, Manhattan's determinism has Death coarsely reply, "You need to believe in non-certain things. How else can you make them true?"
  • Sometimes sounds like Christopher Lee. Other times, not so much. Count Dooku was confused, while Count Dracula was bemused to see a version of his ally.
  • Bill & Ted were disappointed in that while he is a Death with an interest in music, he can only play an "empty chord" that finishes all sound, meaning he's not a fitting replacement for the Grim Reaper who played bass for them.
  • There is no justice. There is just me. This motto occasionally puts him at cross purposes with deities from the House of Law and Justice.

Dhuum, Godly Enforcer of Inevitable Death (Death Inevitable, Emperor of Oblivion, Master of Nothingness, Omega Death, The Ender of All, The Final Death, The Final Judge, The Mouth at the Edge of Darkness, The Voice in the Void)
  • Intermediate God, formerly a Greater God before his defeat.
  • Symbol: Dhuum's scythe.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: 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 deity who has cheated death especially Jean Grey and John Egbert, every deity in the House of Undead and Phasmata, 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 McCormick 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 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 and Camaraderie 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 Death and Postmortem. 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.

SCP-1440, God of Those Despised by Death (The Old Man From Nowhere)
1440, as he was last seen.
  • Intermediate God (Object Class: Keter)
  • Symbol: A pack of worn playing cards
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Enemies with Death, Barred from the Afterlife, Brings Calamity Upon His Presence, Destroys Anything Man-Made, Flying Dutchman, I See Dead People, Won Against Death And Regrets Every Second Of It, Death Seeker, The Problem with Fighting Death

  • Allies: Scathach, Bill and Ted, Skips, The Spring Sprite, Yveltal, Fujiwara no Mokou, Czeslaw Meyer, Kenny McCormick, Nathan Drake, AZ
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Zeref, Albedo Piazzolo, Kessler
  • Enemies: Lord English (one-sided), Death (Regular Show and Final Destination), Nekron, Doctor Weil, AM, The Firebird, Randall Flagg
  • Opposes: Lord Voldemort
  • Opposed by: The House of Machinery and Technology
  • Pitied by: Samurai Jack, Death the Nephilim and Dhuum of all people
  • Respects: Harry Potter
  • Feared by: The Scarlet King
  • SCP-1440, known as the Old Man from Nowhere, is a man who looks in his eighties yet hasn't aged since the Foundation learned of him fifty years ago. 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 Machinery and 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.

  • Enemies: King Boo, Dark Danny, Vlad Masters
  • Annoyed by: The Flying Dutchman (Captain Gregg)
  • Complicated Relationship with: Beetlejuice, Captain Ahab
  • 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 without 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, God of Afterlife Antechambers
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His magical eyes or a set of dummies
  • Theme Music: Flyers; Last Theater
  • 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.

    The Wolf and the Lost Ember

  • Alignment: Chaotic Good for the Wolf, Lawful Neutral for the Lost Ember
  • Portfolio: Prevented from entering the City of Light, piecing together who they were in their past lives through exploring the ruins of a lost Inca-inspired civilization and turning out to be father and daughter, being on equally destructive sides of a revolution, holding on to the amulets of lost loved ones and performing funerals for them, blaming each other for their actions, terrible realizations of what they've done and trying to make things right
  • Domains: Wolves, Spirits, Family, Nature, Travel, Death
  • Allies: The Guardians of the Northern Lights, The ABZU Diver, The Robed Figure, Amaterasu, Stella and Daffodil, Rook and Alette, Jim Raynor, Hagen
  • Enemies: Arcturus Mengsk, Cruella De Vil
  • Respects: Kuzco
  • Pities: Captain Martin Walker
  • Complicated Relationship: House of Beasts and Fauna
  • Yanrana custom states that those that are true to their beliefs and undergo a Viking Funeral will go to the City of Light. Those that don't are reborn as wild beasts. One day, a wolf is woken up by a ball of red light, asking for her help dislodging an amulet from a skeleton. She ends up summoning the spirit of Kalani, who tasks the wolf, her reincarnation, with helping the Lost Ember reach the City of Light. As they travel through the ruins of the Yanren civilization, they piece together Kalani's past through reconstructing her memories. Driven by famine and oppression, Kalani turned to banditry and led a protest against the emperor's forces, but at her father Atevo's order, her home was burned down with her lover Weyla inside. With nothing left to lose, Kalani and her followers infiltrated the capital city of Quilotasi and incited a revolution, but it failed and burned down the city. The spirit was furious but the two pressed forward, following Kalani through a desert and to even more ancient ruins with Atevo in hot pursuit. The spirit then learned he was Atevo and that he accidentally killed Kalani by pushing her off a ledge. Kalani was leading him along to open his eyes to how he blindly follows orders and it cost him everything. After admitting that he was equally at fault for what happened, Atevo was finally free to join Kalani in the City of Light, with the wolf joining them in due time.
  • When the wolf finally entered the City of Light, it was just as beautiful as Atevo had described, and filled with more than just Yanrana. Other deities were quick to notice a black, white-faced wolf bouncing between animals and swiftly directed her to Kalani and Atevo, mere worshippers in the House of Death and Postmortem. The latter was especially delighted to be rejoined by his guide. With the arrival of the animal that brought Atevo to the afterlife and the final piece of Kalani's spirit returned, they finalized their ascension to a position representative of their journey to understand why they were barred from the afterlife.
  • Their temple is a recreation of the Grand Temple of Quilotasi sans wolf-fighting ring, complete with a sanctuary of a pyramid against a golden disk representing the sun. While Kalani disliked having such a structure built, having destroyed the sanctuary during her revolution and opposing the oppression the Yanren empire represented to her, Atevo maintained that it holds important sentimental value to him and represents them now. Kalani is more content with a simple mountain hut like the one she used to live in and spends her time distributing food to the needy.
  • Most gods are still debating about the wolf's true relationship with Kalani. Some theorize that the wolf is the whole Kalani reborn, some say she is an aspect of her, and some even say it is just an ordinary wolf given her memories. While Kalani did indeed task the wolf with teaching her father a final lesson, she refuses to comment further and the two are rarely seen at the same time.
  • The wolf generally is not content with staying in the temple, and goes out looking for trinkets, memories, and other lost souls to guide to the afterlife. Naturally, she spends most of her time in the House of Beast, often accompanied by Atevo in the form of a point of light to speak for her when needed. While some of the gods there don't like the wolf temporarily taking over their followers, and especially since she tried taking over some gods to add to her "legendary" collection, at least the wolf doesn't intend any harm and promptly leaves them once she's done. She now knows to not bother deities and especially anything that could talk. They are far more amicable with Kalani, given her empathy with animals.
  • The wolf's journey to help Atevo reach the afterlife endeared her to the other psychopomps in the House of Death and Postmortem, but the ones they have most interacted with were Stella and Daffodil. One time, they found themselves on Spiritfarer's ferry with Stella thinking the wolf was another one of her clients. A quick talk with her spirit companion cleared up any misunderstandings and the two pairs became fast friends. While Stella specializes in calming the dead in preparation in their journey to the afterlife, the wolf fills a slightly different niche in helping spirits who have lost their memories or have mental blocks preventing them from moving on. Their help is sometimes requested for more stubborn passengers and the wolf drops by using a bird.
  • Kalani was originally wary of Kuzco, seeing parallels between him and the emperor she tried to overthrow, but upon learning that he became a lot more wise and humble after his time as a llama and in the company of a peasant, he earned her respect. Atevo was more immediately accommodating, but both agreed that Atevo's blind devotion wasn't something either needed.
  • Exploring the top of a mountain, the wolf and her companion spotted two foxes running on the sky with an aurora trailing behind them. Intrigued by the sight, she jumped into a condor and flew after them. After some initial caution (being a larger predator and all), the Guardians of the Northern Lights turned out to have similar stories and quickly went to introduce her to the Robed Figure and the Diver. The Diver was especially surprised to see the wolf following her underwater as a fish. When exchanging stories through journeying through their worlds (the spirit was incredibly talkative compared to everyone else), the others grew concerned that the wolf had an active role in the downfall of her civilization in her previous life compared to the rest of them just being explorers of the aftermath. However, they acknowledge that that was long ago and the wolf and Atevo became better people since then. The Robed Figure also chimed happily upon learning that the wolf had rescued a cloth creature on her adventure.
  • Like many other gods, the two were disgusted at Martin Walker's actions and desire to be a hero, but found a kindred spirit in how their convictions blinded them and put them on a path to destruction. Walker especially respects Kalani for coming to her senses and trying to make things right, an option he didn't realize he had until the very end.
  • Two of Atevo's friends he doesn't share with Kalani are Rook and Alette, who appreciate him giving Kalani as close to a proper Viking Funeral as he could and paving her way to enter the City of Light. Kalani herself doesn't believe in the ritual, thinking that one's entry to the afterlife is more than just how their body is disposed of, but it was important to Atevo and he believes that such preparation allowed her to go to the City of Light in the first place.
  • Kalani's revolution was more of a peasant uprising and ultimately failed to create a better society, but her efforts still put her in the company of Jim Raynor. He insisted that what she did was justifiable and while it might not work out, it is still worth it to change even one person's mind. Better that than Arcturus Mengsk, who overthrew his previous government only to institute an even worse tyranny.
    • Kalani was very impressed with Hagen's story, being that of a simple abandoned dog who led an uprising of fellow stray dogs (especially mongrels) after they were mistreated one too many times by the humans who claimed ownership over them. While Hagen does not easily trust humans, he feels like Kalani is definitely different than most for actively standing against tyranny and oppression, and the fact that she spent some time as a wolf makes him think she might understand a dog's point of view better than most.
  • The Terra Restoration Squad has sent out feelers to employ the wolf's abilities for intelligence gathering and infiltration, especially since the wolf comes from a world where nature has overgrown a civilization that fell due to overexploitation of resources to the point of famine. San, being associated with wolves herself, was tasked to recruit her and the three travelled through a polluted area that reminded the wolf and Atevo of the destruction of Quilotasi. So far the pair have declined membership in the GUAN, citing how restoring nature is not exactly in her skillset and Atevo's presence needed to use her abilities would just give her away.
  • As the Yanrana worshiped the sun, Amaterasu was also concerned that since Kalani wrecked their most sacred symbol during her revolution, she might come for the sun goddess next. Of course, Kalani was never going to stand a chance and once things cooled off, Ammy became fond of the soul-wandering wolf and Kalani's rescue of a wolf pup allowed her to get close to Chibiterasu, though he's still more than a bit to handle himself.
  • Cruella De Vil has taken an interest in the wolf, thinking her black and white pelt would make a striking article. However, the wolf proved to be an extremely slippery mark with a companion for situational awareness. Any hunter she hires would be stuck trying to pick the soul-wandering wolf out of a crowd of identical animals if it hadn't given them the slip already. Jumping into another animal would make her pelt inaccessible as well.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    Joe Gillis 

You see, the body of a young man was found floating in the pool of her mansion - with two shots in his back and one in his stomach. Nobody important, really. Just a movie writer with a couple of 'B' pictures to his credit. The poor dope! He always wanted a pool. Well, in the end, he got himself a pool - only the price turned out to be a little high. Let's go back about six months and find the day when it all started.

Joseph C. Gillis, He Who Narrated His Story Past Death (Joe)

  • Enemies: Sideshow Bob, Annie Wilkes
  • Complicated Relationship with: Norma Desmond
  • Joe Gillis was a down-on-his-luck screenwriter who was struggling on his profession come the beginning of 1950. While luck was not on his side, he met a certain gilded star by the name of Norma Desmond, hired by her to help set up her movie comeba—er… “return.” Joe believed he can manipulate her, setting in easy money for him, but soon finds out that he is wrong. At first she was cooperative, but the moment she kept giving him precious items without pay no less, his patience has slowly grown thin. Her script she gave to him was trashy and too long to even be considered for screenplay and soon, her clinginess would invade his personal life. His ambivalence about their relationship and her unwillingness to let go, combined with her delusional visions of stardom, lead to a situation of violence, madness, and death, hence his narration to the fateful day of his life.
  • At first, Joe found himself waking up in the Pantheon after he was murdered by Norma at her swimming pool. Such event brought him confusion and so asked some of the higher ups on why he was brought into the Pantheon. They responded how his narration shed light to his murder as well as highlighting the crazed star's descend to madness. A few found it intriguing how the events played out and was ever more curious of the star herself, a wish that would soon come to reality past Joe's ascension.
  • Being alone has made him relaxed on the first few days of the Pantheon after being granted godhood but such days would not last. On the House of Theatre and Spectacle, a large crowd gathered up on the entrance with what seems to be a glamorous-looking figure walking on the hallways. A few of the deities recognized the figure and decided to inform Joe of the situation, coming to his senses that the crazed star herself, Norma Desmond, arrived shortly in the Pantheon, as if his misery would not end. That was not all, upon her ascension, she was informed of Joe's early presence, which sparked her desire for her "return" once more. Yet even in a plane away from the greedy Hollywood studios, the intention to work together was not well-received, as he has fears that with the rising presence of other actors and stars will result to Norma's delusions and jealousy kicking in once again. God-forbid that his death will be repeated ad-nauseam.
  • Gloominess surrounds Gillis' mind, mainly thanks to a downward spiral of a career he had as a screenwriter. His opinion in the Pantheon, past Norma's presence, remains the same, especially with the new form of superstars and actors of various kinds. All things considered, he has a rather sour opinion for most of the part, afterall, being killed by one vicious superstar has ruined the image for him, especially if any sociopathic ones appear just around the corner, and sadly for him, sociopaths come in all shapes and sizes past the blissful image of Hollywood. Case in point, Sideshow Bob, who also has links to being an actor and a murderous psycho.
    • Following the discovery of Bob, he would soon call out Krusty the Clown for his jaded personality, though not without the same response being called out by Krusty towards him for being equally pessimistic as well. Unhelped by the fact that duo are generally viewed with disdain on their profession with Krusty often being a sellout and Joe being called a hack due to his past pictures and the fact that most of his pitches have been worn out following the change of the genre of Film Noir. He accepts this criticism as he admits this is a part of his fault and tries to make up for it, were it not for a certain actress' desperation that ended his career.
    • He also has been attempting to meet other actors in the hopes of using their stories for his pitches, though some called this to be rather cheap of him. Trips from the House of Theatre and Spectacle exposed him to various actors and actresses he had never seen. Non-human like BoJack Horseman to even the rather disturbing ones like Mima Kirigoe, both of which have come to pity and resent towards him for some of his revelations. The former has seen his attempts of reclaiming his fame and saw it to be depressing as a victim of the chase he has done, while the latter has somewhat feared him mainly because of his fate. Norma's treatment of other actresses as rivals only exasperated things between him and Mimi and have rarely interacted under the fear that both could get murdered on the spot.
  • Speaking of rather unstable members of Hollywood, a production staff that was known for the film called Tropic Thunder was seen by Joe and to put it mildly, he was very uncomfortable with the group. Beyond the group's insane attitude of its members, the events that actually played out in the production of the film has him filled with questions and doubt, as they could have gotten themselves killed on the spot (though one of their members died firsthand to an actual mine no less), all that for a chance of an Academy Award. Out of the members, he has the largest disdain to Les Grossman who goes all the way to make a success even at the risk of the actors' lives, which is a director version to an experience he already felt.
  • Often visited by similar victims of psychos, he is not alone in regards to such, shown when both Marion Crane and Kenny McCormick have become common visitors to him. Kenny's silence kind of irks him while Marion has been pitied by him due to her unforeseen fate with Norman Bates, who is arguably worse than Norma. The meetings with the two have sparked some interest to him if there have been other killed victims past them. Ironic since he did claim that psychopaths sell like hotcakes to the common media, and became a victim of one instead.
    • Soon, a feeling of wariness loomed over Joe's temple as he felt like as he was being watched, not by Norma but by someone perhaps far worse. His fears came true when a woman carrying a knife was suddenly found in his room, threatening to kill him. He would soon wake up revived in another House and as soon as he went back, he found his temple examined by police with the woman he saw in custody. That was when an officer told him of the menace known as Annie Wilkes, who is notorious for kidnapping an author to change an ending of a certain novel. His response was that of a desperate sigh, seeing that there are more mad people around the Pantheon as if his ascension was bad enough.
    • A third visitor came, this time a mother with a child. Rosemary Woodhouse was told to contact Joe Gillis about her experiences with an actor, although this was more on cult behavior than actual star-studded insanity. He does understand her plight seeing what her married actor did to her. He has been warned about her situation being far more dire than his, as her child brought the attention of a cult willing to bring the Antichrist. Some suspect he might use Rosemary's story for a movie pitch but he digresses.
  • Very few could match the same narration Gillis has used to describe his life though he did hear one narrator who also had the same narrative themes displayed on their lives. He would soon visit a washed up apartment within the same Hall he resided in, the police detective known as Max Payne. When they met for the first time, the background went on a black and white tone, complete with apt descriptions of their meeting, filled with cigarettes, dirty lights and two figures sitting calmly on the room. One showed his gun and the other flinced but was otherwise unharmed, nor did a shot occur, only used to tell bits of his story. Finally done with their monologues, the two parted ways, though Max offered Gillis some protection in the case she intervenes, which he politely declined.
  • Joe's original temple is in the House of Narrative, under Types of Narration.

  • After Rose's peaceful death in her sleep, she was immediately ascend the Pantheon because she is one of the most iconic example of the trope. And because her theme song keep repeating that phrase over again.
  • When heard about Rose's ascension, Jack immediately ran to her temple to reunite with her with a kiss. Cal, on the other hand, immediately throws a tantrum about how she cheated on him and he will make her pay for dropping the diamond into the sea. Protection has been granted to her temple by the House of Love so she and Jack don't have to get separated again.
  • Rose's song is so popular that it develops back its own Hatedom for how invasive it was during the time the film came out. Although her song wins back a lot of followers thanks to the re-release.
  • Jack and Rose hates Gaston's guts for his bad treatment of Belle and the Beast. This endears them to Belle and the Beast, who relates to his experience of loving from different social status.
  • With his ascension to the Pantheon, Rose can sometime be seen joining Jack through his drifting throughout the Pantheon. People know not to disturb the two of them whenever they are saying they are drawing like the French.
  • Shinichi Kudo is a strong supporter of Jack's relationship with Rose because they remind him of his friend from the police force Sato and Takagi.
  • Charlotte LaBouff is a big fan of Jack and Rose's relationship because she thinks their story is romantic and Jack's friendship with Tiana while dislikes Cal for how poorly he treats Rose.
  • Made a close friendship with Princess Jasmine because the two of them are in a relationship with someone they love with lesser status.
  • Has a good relationship with Jo March and Anne Shirley for their similar in personality. The three of them can sometimes be seen sharing their story together in a gathering take place in their temple.
    • However, Scarlett O'Hare is not invited to the meeting due to the three consider her an Evil Counterpart for everything they stood for. The fact that she is a proud slave owner does NOT help.
  • Stays away from Jay Gatsby due to how obsessive he is about Daisy and the fact that he looks like Jack.
  • Like Jack and Cal, she forbid anyone from calling her Angelica, Elizabeth or mentioning her with talking animals.
  • Jack and Rose got along well with Romeo and Juliet due to the tragic nature of their romance. The four of them congrats each other that they now reunite with the one they love. The fact that Romeo and Jack looks the same also helps.
  • Hates Calvin Candie with a passion because outside of being a slave owner, he once used likeness to Jack to kidnap her. Luckily, Jack and Cal put aside their difference to rescue her.

  • Opposed by: Many of the hostile Life and Death deities especially Nagash, Dhuum, Death (Final Destination)
  • Death is inevitable and every living being will, sooner or later, join in the world of death as their life is at an end. Many are scared for their eventual fates but some are reminded that during the transition from life to death, a journey exists, to calm the souls before their acceptance into the new afterlife. Take Stella and her pet Daffodil's experience, the two being tasked to take over Charon's (yes the Ferryman of the dead) job to oversee the spirits of lost souls, transformed into animals, and calm them in the journey to the Everdoor, where spirits are to enter to become constellations. During said journey, they can calm the spirits and expand on the ferry to cater to more spirits and explore the various past lives of the spirits, including glimpses of Stella's past life. In the end, the journey through death matters and it is Stella and Daffodil's job to take the role of a Spiritfarer.
  • The Pantheon has had its fair shares of Grim Reapers but ferrymen have been mostly reserved to Charon, as he is the sole originator of such. People often wonder if he can take breaks or give others a chance to take part in his job but none would expect that Charon would give it to a young girl in her 20s. This is where Stella (and her pet Daffodil should someone also want to join in the journey) came in. The Pantheon's surprise seeing that Charon does give chances to mortals, although Stella is on the verge of dying, is a breath of fresh air. With that out of the way, Stella's ferry, which has been expanded for those lost souls has been added to the new locations within the House of Life and Death and with that, her job now has a purpose to give meaning to death as a new journey.
  • Deep within the House of Death and Postmortem, Charon was found satisfied with her role as a Spiritfarer, guiding the spirits of the deceased and giving them new life before their eventual acceptance. She hugged Charon after the newfound discovery of the Pantheon and was pleased to see a house dedicated to the afterlife. Now she too has a purpose and alongside is her pet, who she allows control over the ferry in some occassions. Some say that reception towards her has been cold in the House since she seems to be one of the most upbeat among the death-related gods but she does not seem to mind for the most part.
    • Outside of Charon, another death-like figure appeared in front of Stella's ferry. This figure was tall, covered in a black robe and was indifferent towards Stella from his silence, yet he did not display any form of hate against her. He admittedly finds her job to be soothing and helpful in the role of death. She finds him as a good visitor and while having him around the ferry surrounded by anthropomorphic personifications may seem out of place, it is pleasing for him to see that she is able to do the same job but in a more lighthearted and positive tone than most death-based beings.
  • Hades' own son has been in a tough spot trying to get out of the Underworld so when he heard of Stella's job as a Spiritfarer, he thought he could see her as another ticket out of the underbelly of hell. Turns out Zagreus' thoughts have been turned as not only is Stella's job radically different from Charon (I.E that the realm she crosses is not hell) but she does not offer goods, although her goods comes as managing a ferry meant to house dead spirits in a wholesome way. While he did try to enter the ferry once, he slowly grew bored and attempted to annoy Daffodil out of boredom but in the middle of the journey, he felt a sense of peace as the ferry made its way to the Everdoor. But before he could depart, he saw something in both Stella and Daffodil, in that they too are in a journey to death as they are slowly dying in the real world. This all the more made him more sympathetic to the duo.
  • Throughout her journey in the Pantheon, Stella has been filled with thought to who she might encounter following her seeing a god outside of Charon to enter the ferry. She stopped to pick up two people on the way, two feline humanoids by the name of Giovanni and Campanella introduced themselves to the pair and soon became friends as they went on their trip. Campanella did see something similar between him and Stella and his suspicions were true upon discovery of some of Stella's memories, including her real fate being that she succumed to cancer and that her role as a Spiritfarer reflects on her life as a nurse and her trip to death, in the same vein that Campanella was also in a similar case with him in a train going to heaven. Before the two departed, they gave each other a hug (and a pat to Daffodil) before waving their farewell.
  • It seems Stella and her pet companion are not the only ones who sail around the waters in calmness as while she was travelling she stumbled upon three women clad in white. These women offered some gifts for Stella to keep and her pet even had the chance to interact with their Presidents. The women in question, the gondoliers Aika, Akari and Alice, lead Stella to the Venice-inspired city known as Neo-Venezia to marvel at the scenery as well as the entire scenery of Aqua as well. Both loved their respective locations and at one point, the women asked Stella how it felt like being a Spiritfarer, her response being a smile.
  • Other dying souls may have the opportunity to join the ferry Stella uses, out of respect for any lost soul. Some have been annoyed that their souls turn into anthropomorphic beings but that makes her job easier (and also for them to not annoy Daffodil at times). Seita and Setsuko have been one of the few Pantheon deities that visit Stella on a daily basis, seeing that her cheerful and caretaking skills help alleviate some of the tragic memories the two have. Setsuko in particular always has a happy smile whenever she encounters Stella and even got to play with Daffodil whilst on their journey, meanwhile the young child reminded Stella of Stanley, a poor child who died at such an early age. While their life is tragic, it is nice to see that her role as a Spiritfarer can help alleviate the loss of others, and shows that death can come in many forms, be it to a mob enforcer or even a child who died at a young age.
    • Even ghosts can find some spiritual peace within her ferry as the Everdoor accepts any soul to become a constellation. This was what she saw in Malcolm Crowe, who she found through Cole Sear when he entered the ferry for the first time. While he was talking to Stella about her condition, her cat partner was making sounds nearby her, possibly sensing that a spirit is nearby. It turns out that the kid had an assistant ghost with him who was a child psychiatrist in the past. Seeing how his life turned out after the failure of a patient that costed him his life, she is glad that Cole managed to give him closure. This made him another daily visitor to the Everdoor.
  • She is not the only one who has managed to travel through different landscapes of the afterlife, as that was done before by Dante Alighieri who crossed the paths of Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso (Hell, Purgatory and Heaven respecively). As he once visited her ferry to allow him some time of peace, she noticed how Dante, despite being a poet, has weapons on his side. After some time, he showed that these weapons are the marks of his journey until he found joy in God. Still, the fact that he brought weapons on her ferry has made her scared somewhat.
  • If there is one thing the House of Life and Death has that no other houses can compete, it is the numerous Deaths, not the action but the name "Death" all over the place. Counting the exact number of Death-named deities is annoying but some have taken a liking to Stella's job. Discworld's Death for instance was the second Death to visit her and even showed her what her Hourglass looked like. She was saddened by the looks of it but she nonetheless pushed through with the ferry. Another Death came by but was confused that a death-named being was not wearing robes or the like, instead wearing clothes representing a goth. Out of all the Death's, this one seems to hang around more within the ferry as she likes the views and sceneries that the two come across. Not to mention, the fun interactions she has with the animal spirits Stella takes care of.
    • As news of Stella's arrival reached to the House, other malevolent deities have opposed her role and for one, has seen her with dangerous intent. One Death, although far more feared than the other deaths, has tried his damnest to kill her in spectacular ways, though the success rate has been nil as she is bound to the Everdoor upon her death. Then came Dhuum and Nagash, one has taken his profession albeit too highly and somewhat comes off as snobbish, the other however wants to add her soul to his control, and considering this is the Undying, this worries her to a great extent as his presence can haunt her at times.
