    Athena 
Athena, Goddess of Those Born as Adults (Athene, Minerva, Goddess of Wisdom, Goddess of War, Goddess of Strategic Warfare, The Eldest Daughter of Zeus, Pallas Athena)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/athena_smite.jpg
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: A golden lance next to the Aegis Shield. Alternatively, an owl.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good at her best and Lawful Neutral at her worst.
  • Portfolio: Skipping Baby and Child Forms, Strategic Warfare Deities, Wise Badasses, Self-Imposed Virginity, The Aegis Shield, Daddy's Girls, Is Often Symbolized By and Associated With Owls, Is Protective of Her Younger Siblings and Watches Over Them, Likes Offering Wisdom and Guidance to Heroes, Often Acts As the Voice of Reason to her Family.
  • Domains: Unusual Births, Wisdom, Knowledge, War, Strategy, Guidance
  • Allies: Zeus (her father), All Saints of Athena (Ascended: Phoenix Ikki, Pegasus Seiya, Cygnus Hyoga, Andromeda Shun), Pit, Aigis, several other Olympian/Roman deities, Sophitia Alexandra, Wonder Woman (her half-sister), Annabeth Chase (her daughter).
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Poseidon.
  • Famous Descendants: Saori Kido, Athena Asamiya.
  • Enemies: Medusa, Arachne, Kratos (her half-brother).
  • Fears: Xena
  • Legends has it that Athena came into existence when she burst out of Zeus' head, complete with an already adult body and a mature mind to boot. Don't think about how she felt when in Zeus' body or how much migraine Zeus got for that, though he said it's worth it. Athena is his favorite child, and in turn, she is quite loyal to him.
    • Other sources also claim that she’s the daughter of Zeus and his first wife Metis, the original Greek goddess/titaness of wisdom.
  • Like the rest of her family, Athena has various myths and legends associated to her name. In turn, those same myths and legends come in different versions who each paint Athena in a different light due to being written and told by different people.
    • The legend of Athena and Arachne (which tells the story of a mortal named Arachne challenging Athena to a weaving contest) is a good example of this:
      • Version 1: In this version, Athena wins the contest, and the humiliation causes Arachne to commit suicide. Out of respect for Arachne's skill, Athena resurrects Arachne by turning her into a spider so she could keep weaving. This version has Athena as being gentle and honorable, seeing Arachne as a Worthy Opponent.
      • Version 2: In this version, Athena wins again, but turns Arachne into a spider for losing. This makes her look proud and unforgiving.
      • Version 3: In this version, Arachne wins the contest fair and square, upon which Athena flies into a rage and either kills Arachne or drives her to suicide by destroying the winning tapestry. Afterwards, she immediately regrets her actions and resurrects Arachne by turning her into a spider as an apology. In this version, Athena is spiteful and hot-headed, but also a Jerk with a Heart of Gold capable of regretting her actions.
      • Version 4: In this version, Athena and Arachne's tapestries are of equal quality, but while Athena wove a tapestry depicting various stories where the gods punish mortals for their arrogance (Athena’s goal is to teach a subtle lesson to Arachne about toning her Hubris down a notch), Arachne depicted the gods making fools of themselves and having all different kinds of sex (which is something that obviously doesn’t please Athena much, being a self-imposed virgin goddess and all that). Arachne then starts bragging about her skill once more, having learned nothing. Athena was obviously less than impressed and destroys Arachne's tapestry to punish her for hubris and then gives her a "The Reason You Suck" Speech, upon which Arachne commits suicide. When she learns of Arachne’s suicide, Athena then feels sorry for her and turns her into a spider so she can continue weaving. In this version, while Athena is a stern punisher of Arachne's flippant attitude, she is also somewhat merciful and was actually trying to help Arachne by teaching her a literal lesson in humility.
    • There’s also another legend concerning her and the mythological monster Medusa. Some versions of Medusa’s origin story says that she used to be a beautiful woman, but was then turned into a hideous gorgon creature by Athena because of what Poseidon did to Medusa in Athena’s temple. However, some other versions of the legend says that Athena and Poseidon had nothing to do with Medusa’s origin at all and aren’t related to her whatsoever. In this version, Medusa was always a monster and Athena had nothing to do with her origin.
  • Don't ask why she's occasionally sporting Russian (or french) accent. It's totally Greek, seriously!
  • Pit seems to think that she's like an incarnation of Palutena, only to be corrected that if anything, Athena came first.
  • A few days after her ascension, there was a mighty scream of AAAATHENAAAAAA!!!! courtesy of Kratos, who started wrecking her temple. Athena managed to stave him off and then was told that in his verse, she was infected by Pandora's Box, the element Greed, and became a Manipulative Bitch. She's then told to check up if that element still lingers on her, and she did. The result so far was that due to the bonds she made with others, it was cleansed. Athena herself was flabbergasted as how she could sink that low and promised that she'll do her best to not get to that level again.
    • Even then, Athena would still be wary of Kratos afterwards. Not only about what he did to Zeus, she finds Kratos' rage completely dangerous to every beings.
  • As noted with the 'Famous Descendants' sections, one of Athena's descendants earned her the Undying Loyalty of the Saints. Though she would Face Palm when noted that back in her youth, Saori Kido used to be such a bratty bitch. "It's because I missed my child age that I did not know if I would do that in 'youth', yes?"
  • While her daughter, Annabeth, is able to take care of herself, Athena would release Tarturus itself if any harm ever comes to her.
  • There was apparently a lost tale where for some reason, Athena herself was kidnapped by a lesser deity known as 'Neff' in spite her prowess at strategic warfare that it took Zeus telling some centurions with shapeshifting powers these words: "WISE FWOM YOUW GWAVE", then travel to Tartarus to rescue her. Some say it's just a film made by some mortals, but most likely they did so because if someone implies it to be the truth, that someone doesn't want Athena to turn them into the next Arachne or Medusa.
    • Or is it...? There are also some tales that once she regenerated her power, Athena hunted down Neff herself and completely wrecked him off herself without those centurions' help, with statements that flukes don't happen twice, especially against one well-versed in the strategies of war.
  • It should be noted that as Zeus’s first child, Athena tends to be quite protective of her younger siblings (especially if they aren’t related to Hera), to the point that in most versions of the stories of the Greek mythos, she will help them and offer guidance to the youngest of her siblings. If she needs to, she’ll even go behind her father and Hera’s backs to protect her illegitimately conceived siblings from the wrath of Hera.
    • One example of this happened in a version of Heracles’s origin when Heracles was a baby. Hera, being Hera, wanted to kill Heracles because Heracles was the product of Zeus commiting adultery yet again. Athena decided to protect her new sibling by picking him up and tricking Hera into believing that he was just a normal baby. She convinced Hera to nurture and breastfeed Heracles, thus accidentally blessing him with godlike powers. By the time Hera figured it out, it was far too late for her to do anything about it and Athena swiped him away to safety. Athena (along with her brother Hermes) then proceeded to assist Heracles at various points during his legendary twelve labors and saved his hide on multiple occasions.
    • Another example of this can be seen in one version of her younger sibling Dionysus’s origin. Dionysus is also one of Zeus’s illegitimate children, so, naturally, Hera wants him dead too. However, unlike with Heracles, she actually succeeds in killing the infant Dionysus before Athena could intervene. Hera had a monster destroy Dionysus’s body, to the point that only his heart was left. However, Athena was determined to not give up on Dionysus and through some weird shenanigans, Athena managed to use Dionysus heart to get him reborn in a new body with some help of their father Zeus.
  • Athena is also known for discreetly providing wisdom, guidance and help to heroes on long and epic journeys. She often appears to various heroic deities in the pantheon without them knowing to watch over them and to assist them if needed. Her being the goddess of wisdom and tactical warfare is especially useful in that regard.
  • There is one world where she could only shake her head in fear over what happened. When one of her counterparts led a crusade to kill Xena's child, it ended in disaster with not only her death but also that on nearly the entire Pantheon. She felt it wiser not to delve in the past, but she keeps a constant eye on the warrior princess just in case.

    Eveline 
Eveline, Goddess of Aging Quickly (E-001, Evie, The Grandmother, Rosemary "Rose" Winters)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/98094_08_1.jpg
Eveline's true form (SPOILERS) 
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: The Mold Infestation
  • Theme Song: Go Tell Aunt Rhody and Daidara-bocchi
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy, The Assimilator, Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, Big Bad, Control Freak, Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette, Evil Cannot Comprehend Good, Source of the Mold, Hidden in Plain Sight, Hive Queen, Humanoid Abomination, Only wants a family, Love Makes You Evil, Psychic Powers, Actually 3 Years Old
  • Domains: Bio-weapons, Psychic Powers, Infestation, Fungus, Degeneration, Family, Manipulation
  • Distant Followers: Ed's Neo-Shadaloo Faction
  • Allies: The Bakers, Alma Wade, Samantha Maxis, Poison Ivy, Mewtwo, Parasect, Lucy, Phazon
  • Enemies: Chris Redfield, The SCP Foundation, Joel and Ellie, Aya Brea, SCP-049
  • Obsessed with: Erma Williams, The Point Man
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Alex Mercer
  • E-001, better known as Eveline, is a genetically modified Human designed to be a B.O.W. with the mission to eliminate and exterminate anyone who her creators deem as a threat, spreading a disease while blending as a regular human. Eveline has exceptional psychic powers that made her a rather controversial B.O.W. and it attracted a lot of attention from organization like B.S.A.A. and Blue Umbrella who wanted to get rid of all Bio-Weapons, which forced her creators to transport elsewhere. However, Eveline broke out and caused the ship she was being transported in to wreck near the Baker State in Lousiana. She then proceeded to brainwash all members of the Baker family and make them her own, since what Eveline desired the most was to have a family that loved her.
  • How Eveline managed to find her way into the pantheon is unknown. It's believed that, shortly after the Bakers own ascension, Lucas was plotting something with Wesker and after pulling some strings, they managed to get her in here. The first she did was attach to anyone who would be a suitable family for her but The Baker Family, still under her influence, welcome her with open arms.
  • She is genetically altered since she was a fetus to age much more quickly and resemble a 10-year-old girl. This was regulated by being administered a medication, but without she ages up at twenty-five times of a typical human being and when Ethan found her she looked like a very old woman in her eighties, enough to pass up as the Bakers grandmother. In the pantheon thankfully for her, the medication required to keep that accelerated ageing in check is provided on a daily basis and mostly to keep her confined in her temple since the dangers of an outbreak caused by her are high.
  • The thing that Eveline desires the most is having a family of her own, that's why the Bakers are so protective of her, because she brainwashed them to care for her. She is the reason why they kidnap and kill people, so she can have a bigger family. There were some people outside of them who willingly wanted to be at least friends with Evie, one of those was Alma Wade believe or not, given their similar looks. She cares for her as if she was her own child and can even overlook her attempts at trying to force Alma into succumbing into the mold's influence (she stopped trying after taking a trip to the Almaverse). Eveline's for once is happy there is someone out there who understands her bizarre morality, even if Alma isn't the most stable person around.
    • She was later introduced to Alma's son, the Point Man. Eveline instantly latched on to him and started calling him "brother", which brought him a few flashbacks of his brother Paxton Fettel and tried to distance himself from Eveline since he thought that the girl was no different from him, even if his own mother was fond of her. For this reason, it's not uncommon for Eveline to stalk him from time to time, he is already familiar with that thanks to Alma but he finds it annoying and unsettling. At least Eveline knows better than to harm him, less Alma finds out and lashes out at her.
    • And then there was Erma, who was also close to Alma and so Eveline saw the little ghost girl as her sister and so tried to attach to her. Erma wasn't initially bothered but after Eveline started getting more insistent she starting lashing out at Evie and it didn't even help that her temples were right next to each other. At least with Eveline, the Bakers won't bother Erma anymore.
    • On a less problematic note, she actually became good friends with Samantha Maxis. Both girls like plushies and also have control over an army of infected and luckily Eveline's influence can't reach Samantha.
  • Eveline's infection comes from a special type of genetically altered fungus that can mind control any people who comes in contact with it and also can turn them into a biomass monstruosity after a period of exposure. While not as severe as her own infection, Eveline seems to be fond of the little Parasect and its little fungus growt controlling it. The same can't be same of others like Joel and Ellie, whose world fell into a period of darkness after a fungal infection nearly wiped out all of humanity and Eveline is not different from that, potentially worse.
    • Eveline and the Phazon seem to be on good terms, with raised a lot of red flags in the pantheon considering what the Phazon does to living creatures but it seems it's mostly that source of their powers come from a fungus. That, and others fear what would happen if their respective influences got combined or if the Phazon tried to take over Eveline.
    • Their source of powers may come from different places, but Evie and Poison Ivy are also on good terms, even if she is wary of the posibility of her ruining her lair.
  • Being genetically created in a lab, Eveline has bonded of other creature of similar origin, particularly Mewtwo and Lucy who share the psychic powers and shares the same desire of belonging to a family as the former did. She is also as violent as Lucy when provoked but can be calmed down if someone takes care of her as a family member.
    • Doesn't know what to think about Alex Mercer but knows that he is up to no good considering what he does. He tried to approach her and form an alliance but Eveline didn't believe him and turned him down. Strangely enough, he hasn't tried absorbing her yet, but she is expecting him to attack anytime. Of course, Alex thinks she is an Hypocrite because she does the exact same thing with other people.
  • She is unlike any other B.O.W. before, at least compared to the likes of Nemesis and Mr. X in that she has her own motivations besides what she was programmed to do, even if her views and actions are not aligned with those of human morality and she has done many things that are outright villainous. Still, Albert Wesker ,being a former Umbrella member and wanting to know more about the Connections' creations after his little chat with Lucas Baker, wants to take Eveline to his side, promising to give her the family she desires (Which it being Wesker, it's all lies) and Chris Redfield caught up to Wesker and Lucas' schemes and has contacter his buddies at B.S.A.A. to take care of this issue.
  • She has had some encounters with the SCP Foundation, which to her are no different from her previous creators on how they treated her and after having a chance encounter with SCP-049, they wanted to contain Eveline under a new temple since she could be dangerous. They were unsuccessful in containing Eveline since the Baker Family has her secured.
  • There were debates whether or not Eveline is a justified Tragic Monster. For starters, she brainwashed the Bakers into becoming her family the second she woke up in their house and several times she has been shown to enjoy inflicting pain on others, not to mention mentally messing with people and her bizarre morality make some people believe she is not as sympathetic as she is made out to be. Though there has since been further explanation of where exactly she, and possibly her mentality, came from.
  • Most families ascended (besides the Bakers) stay firmly away from Eveline. This mostly comes out that her wanting a family has made her try to force herself into others and so they are being careful with that.

    Yuuka Kazami 
Yuuka Kazami, Goddess of Growing Stronger with Age (Flower Master of the Four Seasons, Youkai Moe~)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th09yuukakazami.png
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: A sunflower (or any seasonal flower) wrapped around the handle of her umbrella
  • Theme Music: Gensokyo, Past and Present ~ Flower Land, Sleeping Terror and Faint Dream ~ Inanimate Dream
  • Alignment: True Neutral with shades of Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Being Strong Due of her Age, Older Than They Look, Say It with Hearts, Parasol of Pain and Elegance, Constantly Teasing Others, Green Thumb, Having a Really Lame Power, The Terror of Others
  • Domains: Flowers, Age, Youkai
  • Herald: Youka Kazami
  • Allies: Tsubomi Hanasaki, Kurama, Shaymin
  • Enemies: Hexxus, Looten Plunder, Vargas, Lava, Dr. Zomboss
  • An extremely old youkai of flowers, Yuuka in her home realm is one person you do not want to cross. And not because of her powers, as her ability to manipulate flowers is as lame as it sounds. Instead, her years of experience have made her what she is now, as she is monstrously strong both physically and magically (which includes cloning herself and inventing the Master Spark, which Marisa made famous). If her age didn't also make her less active, she could be one of the most dangerous gods in the Pantheon.
  • As part of her nature, she loves flowers and is generally nice to those who are nice to them. She like to chat with Tsubomi about flowers, though Tsubomi admits that she is bit scared of Yuuka.
    • Similarly, Shaymin is sort of a pet for Yuuka, with Shaymin visiting Yuuka's flower garden quite often.
  • There are couple of ways people see her as: A friendly old woman who is generally nice to others, or the Ultimate Sadistic Creature who enjoys nothing more than to see you suffer in the worst ways possible. However, Yuuka is actually somewhere in the middle: while she's usually inactive, she loves to tease others with stuff like genocide and usually simply roughens weaker foes up, fighting stronger enemies with certain rules to avoid unnecessary deaths.
  • Where her temple is in House of Power, her actual residence in in House of Nature in a huge sunflower field, surrounded by seasonal flowers.
  • Do not mess with her flower field. That act isn't part of the list of dumbest things to do in the Pantheon. It's in the how to kill yourself in the most painful ways in the Pantheon list. No matter how strong you are, Yuuka will overcome that power and not leave enough of you to be used as fertilizer when she's done. She is willing to take on even the superpowered likes of Asura should he make that mistake. What makes her quite different from every other moron willing to do such a thing is she is simply strong enough to have a fairly good chance of not only surviving, but actually winning.
    • Messing with her herald Youka is another great way to get Yuuka very angry at you.
  • Some gods wonder if her flower manipulation might actually be useful. Yuuka herself disagrees, stating her powers are simply good for the flowers and have little use otherwise.
  • There is indication she's even older and stronger than anyone has guessed so far, maybe even an Old God. When queried, she brutalized the offender with relentless danmaku barrages, and finished him off with a full Double Master Spark for having the sheer impudence of asking a lady about her age.
  • Was recently visited by Mima who reached Yuuka's sunflower field in the pantheon via a detour through some Dream Land. What started out as a pleasant time of catching up between two old friends quickly devolved into a round of Passive-Aggressive Kombat between two Blood Knights, and though it seems both parties initially intended to merely goad the other into throwing the first punch, by the time the other gods had brought out the popcorn the situation had gone pear-shaped. It's generally agreed upon that Yuuka crossed the line first when she referred to Mima as "Ms. Cunningham," but it's also agreed upon that Mima pushed the situation beyond repair when she set Yuuka's flowers on fire. Long story short, before anyone fully knew what was going on, Mima had fired her Twilight Spark and Yuuka had pulled out her own Ultimate Spark. We may never know how many lives were lost that day...

Intermediate Gods

    Erastil 
Erastil, The Elderly Immortal God (Old Deadeye, Stag God, Estig the Hunter)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stag.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A bow and arrow
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Domains: Law, Good, Community, Animal, Plant
  • Portfolio: Good Old Ways, Arcadia, Grumpy Old Man, Heroic Neutral, Horned Humanoid, The Older Immortal, Screw Politeness, I'm a Senior!
  • Herald: The Grim White Stag
  • Allies: Cayden Cailean, Hank Hill, Ron Swanson, Drow Ranger and Windranger, the House of Beasts, especially Bambi, The Farmer, Rolf, Applejack, The Cabbage Merchant
  • Rivals: Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Hanzo
  • Enemies: Asdomeus, Cyth V'sug
  • Opposes: Belkar Bitterleaf, Eustace Bagge
  • Annoyed by: Calistria
  • Pities: Soldier 76
  • This god is not simply that old due to looking this way; Erastil is among the oldest deities in his world, even rumored to bring the bow and arrow to his world's humanity (both Hawkeye and Green Arrow have contested those claims). Regardless, Old Deadeye is a respected god who prefers the company with like-minded gods.
    • He is not impressed with the makeup of other Pathfinder Gods who have made their way to the Pantheon. The god he's most likely to side with is Cayden, whom he hopes will take up a more settled life. The Accidental God can only promise his followers won't make too much of a ruckus in his presence. He also tends to butt heads with Abadar over their contrasting loves for cities and the wilderness. Nevertheless, he's at least glad to have two other deities aligned with Good or Law. Asmodeus is much worse due to his potential for corrupting communities. That said, he does come in limited contact with the archdevil. That certainly can't be said for Calistria, a goddess he declared a homewrecker at best. It comes at no surprise that the Stag God hopes to bring forth more amiable deities into the fold.
  • Erastil was glad to find a plethora of gods willing to have a similar life. Hank Hill is particularly interested in his philosophy, though he's unlikely to follow that god any time soon.
    • Bob Belcher tried to have his family follow the same principles... which much less success. He still pays tribute to the Old Deadeye, but is less inclined to make his family do the same.
  • Few deities are connected to Erastil more than the Farmer. The God of Farmers has tended his crops for some time and was glad to find someone who can help him produce high yields of crops. He shares this sentiment with Applejack the apple farmer and Rolf the foreigner of the cul-de-sac.
  • As an old school god of the old ways, he seldom ventures into the more civilized areas in the Pantheon, preferring the outdoors. He was surprised there wasn't a deity dedicated specifically for that lifestyle or for that of cities. He strives to become the defacto god for the former.
  • Was impressed with the way Ron Swanson runs his temple in the House of Justice. He gives the bureaucrat advice on how to take care of parks from time to time. The two both yearn for simpler times, causing them to bond. That and Erastil has become a fan of Ron's breakfast choices.
  • Probably has one of the highest percentage of rangers in the Pantheon... other than actual rangers Drow Ranger and Windranger. When Erastil talked to Traxex about the drow, he was surprised how different her version of drow was (or that she looked more like a drow to him). He has taken care not to favor one over the other.
  • He may be one of the first to master the bow and arrow, but whether he's the best at it is arguable. Both arrow superheroes claim to be the better sharpshooter. It remains to be seen if Erastil will take up the challenge.
  • Also has some beef with Hanzo, but for a different reason. The archer has advocated others to modernized the bow and arrow to keep up with more modern weaponries, a tactic the Old Deadeye has long resisted.
  • His followers may be hunters, but he strives to have an amiable relationship with all wild creatures in the Pantheon. This made him rather popular in the House of Beasts. This is especially true with Bambi.
  • There has been a worrying amount of rangers who have been following the philosophy of a halfling named Belkar. The odd fellow has very few skills that a ranger typically does and instead develops a bloodlust for killing. Erastil hopes to put a stop to this loss of followers.
  • Has a soft spot for Soldier 76, and some theorize has been helping the vigilante on his quest for justice. Many are puzzled why the help. It is actually due to Jack Morrision's background as a child of fathers. The Stag God hopes Soldier can return to that life, but such a prospect looks unlikely for now.
  • He's tried to find the reason the Cabbage Merchant has had his cabbages destroyed so many times. His first suspect is Earl, who has denied these accusations.
  • Of course, not all farmers have earned his blessings. He has made his disdain for Eustace Bagge well known, mostly for his mistreatment of others, especially Courage. It's not like Eustace has done much to win back his approval, cursing his name before sitting back on his chair in protest.

    Ichiro Inuyashiki & Hiro Shishigami 
Ichiro Inuyashiki & Hiro Shishigami, Gods of Conflicts Between Old Heroes and Young Villains
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inuyashiki.png
Inuyashiki and Shishigami in battle
  • Intermediate Gods
  • Symbol: Their respective roboticized faces
  • Alignment:
  • Portfolio: Rebuilt as Cyborgs
  • Domains: Cyborgs, Conflict
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: The Colour Out of Space, The Sleeper
  • Other Relations: The Masked Man, Wander
  • Source of Interest for: Dr. Gero
  • An elderly man and a teenager end up at a park one day and end up struck by something of extraterrestrial origin. The result of that encounter is their bodies have been rebuilt to that of cyborgs and both gain powers that they never thought they could have. Whereas Inuyashiki, the old man, vowed to used his powers for good, the teenaged Shishigami decided to use his abilities to cause chaos and murder anyone he didn’t care about. Both would eventually cross paths with each other once more, both in battle against each other and later, a final meeting atop a meteor that’s on a collision course to Earth where Shishigami tells Inuyashiki of a self-destruct function in their bodies. Both of them end up sacrificing themselves to destroy the meteor, with Shishigami doing it for the safety of his friends and Inuyashiki doing it for the safety of his family and the rest of Earth.
  • During a scavenging session, a group of people managed to find what appeared to be parts of a human cyborg and got to work reassembling it. The group was surprised when they discovered that they managed to rebuild an old man who happened to be a cyborg and not long after they completed that task, they learned that another group managed to reassemble a different cyborg, except it was that of a high school student. As it turned out, both Inuyashiki and Shishigami ended up in the Pantheon and word about what they had done back then managed to spread after the rebuilding process was completed. While Inuyashiki continued his goodwill in the Pantheon, Shishigami has laid low for the time being, though the possibility that he will step back into action isn’t out of the question.
  • A handful of other deities who were turned into cyborgs by various circumstances found something interesting in the fact that Inuyashiki and Shishigami used their newfound powers for different means. The Masked Man, who was turned into a cyborg and had nearly all his humanity eliminated in the process until gaining it back at the very end, was disturbed upon learning that Shishigami was willing to commit a large amount of atrocities with his powers and wasn’t fully convinced on the fact that Shishigami did try to act like a good person a few times. As for Inuyashiki, The Masked Man found it admirable that someone was willing to try and affirm their humanity in spite of gaining inhuman upgrades
  • Genos was one cyborg who found plenty of intrigue with the duo and discovered he had a bit in common with the two of them in some way. Like the two, Genos was originally rebuilt as a cyborg with a wide assortment of powers after being critically wounded. Genos also had to stop a meteor, though even with his powerful abilities, it wasn’t enough to destroy it. Genos was also a bit like Shishigami in that revenge against others for killing the ones he cared about served as a strong motivator for his rampage, but Genos eventually calmed down and served as a fighter for justice, similar to what Inuyashiki does. In general, Genos is very sympathetic towards Inuyashiki given how the latter was shunned by his own family and had to work his way to being well-liked by him in addition to his sense of justice. Genos is also more than willing to go after Shishigami if the latter ends up causing problems for the Pantheon.
  • As far as the source of their powers are concerned, both Inuyashiki and Shishigami ended up getting their cyborg powers as a result of getting hit by an alien spacecraft and having their bodies rebuilt by whoever was in control of that spacecraft. In a way, their powers are extraterrestrial in nature and there were others who are aware of power sources from such that were curious about what could happen if the two ended up getting their powers from different aliens. The XCOM has had their experiences with an alien power source known as Meld, which they used to their advantage thanks to XCOM’s chief engineer. Dr. Raymond Shen looked into the source of Inuyashiki and Shishigami’s powers and noticed just how advanced and potent the technology that those aliens had. While he and other benevolent scientists have looked into the exact source of where those aliens came from, a handful of malevolent aliens (and other villainous entities in general) have taken an interest in those powers to try and use it for themselves.
    • Dr. Gero was one scientist who had a keen interest in what both Inuyashiki and Shishigami were capable of. It quickly became clear that Inuyashiki and Shishigami both had the same powers as each other and Dr. Gero didn’t care much if Inuyashiki was destroyed somehow. Being a cyborg himself, Dr. Gero was more interested in seeing if he could use Shishigami as a means of carrying out his revenge. Although Shishigami has mostly kept to himself in the Pantheon, the fact that he’ll react violently if he and those he cares about are threatened and that he has shown enjoyment in causing carnage has given Dr. Gero plenty of reasons to try and get him on his side.
  • Wander took a notable interest in the two after hearing about the stories (and being impressed with their cyborg powers), especially considering Inuyashiki’s willingness to do good for others and how Shishigami had a few people that he cared about even if he caused a lot of harm towards others. Naturally, it didn’t take that long for Wander to befriend Inuyashiki and he has talked to the cyborg grandpa on a regular basis. As for Shishigami, Wander has had some difficulty in trying to approach him and was dismissed as a “weirdo” by Shishigami a few times. Given that Shishigami did try to use his powers for good even if it ended in failure and that he did play a role in destroying a meteor that could have annihilated Earth, Wander does seem convinced that Shishigami could fully stop being a villain, though his sidekick Sylvia is more skeptical about it.
  • The final and shared threat that the two had to take care of was an oncoming meteor that was going to destroy Earth. While asteroids heading towards the planet where the Pantheon is in is nothing unusual by the standards set for the place, there were a couple of more distinct meteors that were much more dangerous than the rather basic meteor that the two destroyed prior. The Colour from Outer Space was a meteor that was capable of corrupting its surroundings and driving people to madness and The Sleeper has a similar, but still very dangerous, ability in turning the surrounding area into crystal. Self-destruction (which is seen as a last resort anyways) is more than likely not going to accomplish much in trying to destroy these supernatural meteors and many fear what could happen if Inuyashiki and Shishigami (moreso regarding the latter) end up affected by either meteor.
  • Ichiro Inuyashiki was an old man with an uncaring family and a life that was headed nowhere before gaining his cyborg powers. With him being a cyborg allowing him to be revitalized and relieved of whatever health ailments he had in the past, Inuyashiki vowed to use his powers to help innocents after saving a man from being beaten to death. With the help of Naoyuki Ando (a former friend of Shishigami), Inuyashiki was able to get a better understanding of his abilities and how to make the most out of them.
    • When he was initially trying to get the hang of his powers, Inuyashiki sang the theme song from Astro Boy while flying around before becoming accustomed to his cyborg abilities. It didn’t take that long for Inuyashiki to encounter Astro Boy directly in the Pantheon, especially after Astro managed to hear an old man sing that song. Both have a strong commitment to protecting the innocent from various threats, though how both came to be differ in a way. Whereas Inuyashiki was simply rebuilt as a cyborg after getting hit by an extraterrestrial object, Astro Boy was created by Dr. Temna to be a robot duplicate of a kid named Toby after the latter died. Regardless, both Inuyashiki and Astro get along with each other very well and Astro has come to see Inuyashiki as an older father figure.
    • Inuyashiki shares a handful of traits from Superman, specifically having access to powerful abilities and using them to keep the populace safe. The two maintain a strong friendship with each other, though Inuyashiki has a stronger connection with The Iron Giant in terms of how their adventure played out. Both had extraterrestrial entities involved in their origin, are powerful in their own way, compare themselves to a fictional hero (Inuyashiki to Astro Boy and The Iron Giant to Superman), and even had to sacrifice themselves to stop a meteor from destroying everything. Inuyashiki certainly saw quite a bit of himself in The Iron Giant and the two have become good friends who are willing to aid each other whenever possible.
    • One of Inuyashiki’s earlier actions after he became a cyborg was learning about a shady yakuza enterprise and subsequently crippling all of them, including their depraved leader, for life. The Pantheon was home to a multitude of villainous organizations and individuals that were similar to that yakuza group in terms of actions and Inuyashiki has found himself in conflict with a number of them every now and then. As for actual people involved with the yakuza, Inuyashiki was surprised after meeting Kazuma Kiryu, especially since not only was Kiryu far more benevolent compared to Saejima (the yakuza boss that Inuyashiki fought against), but that Kiryu had a code of honor almost comparable to that of Inuyashiki. Seeing a cyborg grandpa was a bit weird for Kiryu given that he’s witnessed his share of odd events, but the two maintain a good friendship with each other.
  • Hiro Shishigami was a high school student who didn’t find much of a purpose in life until the day he and Inuyashiki gained their powers. While Shishigami did have some close friends that he cared about, him using his powers to cause harm to others caused those friends to be alienated by his actions. Despite a couple of attempts to try and use his powers for good, him being pursued by law enforcement over earlier killings thwarted his attempts to go straight.
    • In spite of being a murderous sociopath, Shishigami does have some friends he cares about, even if they are clearly not supportive of his more violent actions. A number of deities who served as moral support for their more morally questionable deities did show a bit of disappointment that Shishigami went down a very violent path despite having some friends that could keep him in check, even if his final actions involved attempting to stop a meteor from destroying Earth. That said, there are a very small number of deities (in addition to the aforementioned Wander) that seem convinced that Shishigami can fully embrace his good side. Many do believe that Frisk, given how the latter had brought out the best in others on a regular basis, is capable of such a thing, but the fact that the Pantheon is a dangerous place in general meant that even if Frisk’s efforts do work out, Shishigami isn’t going to stay on the side of good for that long.
    • While both Inuyashiki and Shishigami both share the same abilities with each other (including flight and long-range weapons), Shishigami has been able to kill others from afar via simply connecting to a screen his victims are using as well as hijack any vehicles in his vicinity. This ended up being a cause for alarm for many benevolent tech-savvy deities, especially since the Pantheon will give Shishigami a lot more tools at his disposal if he decides to go on another mass murder spree. While those in the know-how about technology have already figured out ways to mitigate Shishigami’s potential attacks, the fact of the matter is that if Inuyashiki somehow isn’t available to stop a potential rampage carried out by Shishigami, then someone very powerful would have to step in and stop the cyborg teen.

  • Enemies:
  • A legendary mage known within the floating city of Dalaran, Khadgar's journey from novice to Archmage was not easy. After being raised in the early days of Azeroth, he would be sent to seek apprenticeship under the Guardian Medivh, teaching him new sorceries and eventually, the basics of Kirin Tor magic. There, he would see visions of a grand war between the Orcs and Humans, create his own spells and witness a battle between a master mage and a titan-sized demon lord. However, all was not well when his master was found possessed by Sargeras and was forced to kill him, with a consequence that his life and magical energy was sucked prior to killing his master. Following the curse, his appearance, from a young apprentice to an old mage, would never change. His magical power however, did not.
  • His ascension was followed by colorful, purple glyphs which appeared from the sky, giving hints that he did not here for ascension initially. It was later discovered that he was contacted via Jaina Proudmoore who gave him a message of "a new realm with different worlds converged into one place". Following his entrance however, he would reject her assistance for the reason that she brought him was to coordinate in Alliance politics and attempted to leave the place, had it not been for a king that approached him as soon as he was about to leave.
    • The king, revealing to himself to be King Varian Wrynn, would later convince him to join the Pantheon, especially since he pointed to him a certain house in dire need of trainees. Convinced, he joined alongside Varian into the upper ranks of the ascended members of the Alliance.
  • He was overjoyed upon hearing from his alliance friends that not only did Varian and Jaina ascend, but so did his fellow Kirin Tor member Kalecgos. Knowing that he now holds the key to the Pantheon's Mana resource, he can finally help him in training new and worthy wizards to other worlds.
    • Despite siding with the Alliance, he has approached the Horde as an ally and not an enemy. Thrall and Vol'jin especially have seen a kind heart in him, considering he helped the Burning Legion following their return. Grommash also came in, with an apology, to which he kindly accepted and showed that Orcs can be good in nature. That cannot be said towards Grom's son, Garrosh, who ended up bringing his horde with an alternate version to create The Iron Horde.
  • Rather than aiming for which allegiance he would be placed into by the Horde and Alliance conflict, his ideas aim at the bigger enemies outside the usual conflicts. These include outer gods, a demonic legion, and even older unholy evils that loom around the Azeroth landscape. Seeing the bigger picture, this idea stuck by him led to his allegiance towards the Grand United Alliance of Good, with Cosmos reaching out to him. Upon meeting her, she sees great potential in him, while he sees her as an exemplar of good. She has promised a great extent to aid him in the worst possible scenarios against the battle on evil, even if it means going outside of his comfort zone.
    • Among those who were immediately spotted by him were the GUAE Malum Magia as they are the group's evil mage sect. Not only do they have Gul'dan as one of their higher ranking members but they also serve the forces of Melkor, someone who would make the Lich King blush in terms of depravity and such injustice cannot go unnoticed.
    • The evil sorcerers of the Mortal Kombat Tournament saw Khadgar as a massive threat, with Shinnok plotting ways to take him down with the his amulet while Quan Chi is attempting to contact support from Sauron. As for why, just ask the numerous times the Archmage of Dalaran closed the Dark Portal. Age can sometimes be a pain to underestimate.
    • Working as a defender of Azeroth for so long has made him deal with all kinds of Omnicidal Maniacs over the years and the existance of the GUAD is a huge concern for him, partly seen some familiar faces are among as high ranking members. That and the preservation of life is one of Khadgar's goals that he must uphold, as well as the once massive assault of the Scourge, which changed Azeroth permanently.
  • Hearing that demon hunters existed within the Pantheon, he thought to himself whether Illidan showed up prior before him, to which the latter replied by appearing right in front of him shouting YOU ARE NOT PREPARED! After the sight, the archmage would only give a large sigh, realizing that on old "friend" (read: frenemy) managed to take a seat before him. Though he is rather grateful that he and Illidan are in good terms, even with the number of times Illidan further doomed Azeroth by attempting to destroy Northrend, creating a demon army in Outland and in the third invasion, brought Azeroth closer to the Netherworld and Argus, because at least he made up for it by saving them from the Legion and for becoming Sargeras' jailor by the end of the third invasion.
    Khadgar: "Must you really repeat that same line after the actions you've done?"
    Illidan: "What? I like it and it works... sometimes."
  • His ascension would also bring the interest of his old master Medivh, who was proud to hear that his protégé has finally ascended following the events on his homeworld. Though he has no idea how to feel towards him, as he knows he killed him, resulting to his curse, all while remembering him via his spells, books, and even apparitions one which was used as a demon in disguise. His reapperance would confuse him further since he now has a teenage, cheerful set where he plays parties within the tower of Karazhan. Though he can say without a doubt is that he is glad Medivh is no longer possessed.
  • His age has always been a matter of debate but at this point in time, Khadgar is supposed to be old but he managed to look younger than he did back when Medivh transformed him into an old man. Many believe magic has to do with that, after all mages are quite long lived thanks to their magic. Mother Gothel especially is intrigued with that and she's been trying to find out how to learn from Khadgar in order to extend her life without relying on the methods she used for years. The Archmage is obviously not thrilled about this.
  • If Illidan's presence has any indication, its that Gul'dan is no farther within the sects of the Pantheon. The warlock's comments towards Khagdar are of pity and anger as he sees the archmage's attempts to halt the Legion's advance fruitless, if he wasn't an threat to deal with in the first place. With both Medivh and his apprentice in the same place, he's planning to make his moves quicker before the two could advance.
    • However, if anything is to show that Gul'dan is a pawn to the Legion, Khadgar's fear would come true when it was revealed that Sargeras, the Dark Titan and Commanding Power of the Burning Legion, the one force he has stopped numerous times, ascended within Pantheon grounds before him. This would make him determined to take down the Dark Titan down and is willing to bring both sides of the Alliance and the Horde, alongside his allies and Illidan again, to fight against the biggest threat ever known in Azeroth's history.
    • But that's not the only issue at stake, seeing as the Old Gods are too a looming presence in the pantheon and the four of them were imprisoned together in a special temple, which to Khadgar screams bad news considering how they can just manipulate and corrupt anyone from afar. And considering several of their top minions, like Deathwing, Ragnaros and Cho'gall, roam the halls of the pantheon, he thinks these shadowy creatures cannot go unnoticed.
  • For being one of, if not the most dangerous mage since Aegwynn and Medivh, his reputation has preceded him potential among other mages. Gandalf sees the absolute best in him and has hope that he will be a great ally in the war against evil, while Harry thinks of him not as a great teacher for interested mages but as a leader, considering that he was one of the main leaders when the Burning Legion began their Third Invasion.
    • Merlin however holds one of the highest honors for him, seeing his achievements as true examples of wizardry. His goals made it much better and is willing to bring him alongside the Magic Council. Though he agreed, on the condition that politics is not to be discussed.
    • When news heard that he was one of the main driving force between the Second and Third Invasion Wars, Lord Kroak applauded him, even so much as to inviting him into the Slann as a worthy member of his mage race. While he did appreciate the offer, his caution towards him rose when news of what Kroak has done towards other races reached into the GUAG, not to mention the numerous sacrifices he and his race has done.
    • Being a mage unfortunately brought in some disadvantages, chief among those were Anti-Mage and Kiritsugu Emiya being thorns on his magical prowess. While Kiritsugu has been calm towards him, he has his trust issues ever since he has connections with Illidan, who he already has a rather mixed history with. The latter for some reason always finds ways to disable his magic for a few minutes, but thanks to no part of his skills, he still can outmaneuver the Anti-Mage's attacks with counter-magic.
    • His relations on Touma were worse, as the representative for punching mages to death doesn't sound like a good bell on his eyes. While the two are on good terms (read: not trying to kill each other), the former's personality has gotten the Archmage's nerve on him rather bad.
  • Upon hearing what type of sorceries he could do, Ezreal approached him with interest seeing if he can improve his magical projectiles, as most Azerothian mages have used large portions of such like Arcane Missiles (and larger variants). Needless to say, Ezreal's magic did not disappoint him and is willing to help him out.
  • Even if he is considered one of the best mages of his time, he racked up a reputation of being kind of a shitty wizard. This is a running joke for trolls and jokesters, some people even mistakenly assumed that Khadgar was indeed a shitty wizard. He usually laughs it off but it can be grating to hear the same joke every time he shows up.
  • With several consultations with fellow mage Doctor Stephen Strange, open spots have been made for his classes where he can teach willing participants. Both have commented their rise to power and have shared several moments that changed their lives. Particularly, their power levels that made them one of the most powerful mages. This lead to a cooperative effort between the House of Magic and School, allowing him to form a magical faculty center, with efforts from Triss Merigold making it all possible.
    • After much debating, other teachers were included into the faculty. Dumbledore brought the wizardry class a demonstration on Khadgar's abilities, with much awe. Zatanna was in charge of the Magician Class, with Strange as the head counselor alongside him and Merlin. Seeing a potentially new thriving community, the Magical Faculty was made.
    • Following the sessions within the House of Magic as a new teacher, a certain female magus has contacted his presence. That magus turned out to be Rin Tohsaka, who has piqued her interest in the wizard's techniques, primarily on Mana Conservation and more powerful spells outside her knowledge. At the same time, he sees great potential on her magical skills, combined with her ability to summon Servants of her choice, though he sees her magical abilities alone to be sub-par. However he is dedicated to helping on her Mana control more efficiently, just expect Rin to be rather pushy everytime he keeps criticizing on her magic.
    Rin: "Ugh, this magical teaching is hard! Do I really need to do this?"
    Khadgar: *laughs* "I mean, you signed up for my class, and for being my first apprentice, I should credit you, but if you wish to be a better mage, you have to try harder."
    Rin: "I am! I just don't like this. Its too hard!"
    Khadgar: "Well if you wish, would you like to try another spell that is easier? Easier than your spells?"
    Rin: "Hey don't humiliate my skills! I swear I did better last time."
    Khadgar: "Then keep up."
    • Afterwards, Akko, seeking another master sorcerer sought his presence believing that he can teach her more versatile spells. He laughed the moment he met her, but seeing her the second time, and eventually the third time, he decided to take her to his wing as his second apprentice. Afterall, Akko's determination and heart is what motivated bringing her into his newly made class and has more expectations for other future apprentices in the future.
  • A frequent visitor of the Tavern, usually representing the mage class alongside Jaina and his former mentor. He is notable for also pulling double duty, being a mage minion on occasion, which sometimes led to confusion when he appears as both a minion and a hero. He brushes it off as just a mirror image gone wrong.
    Khadgar: "Impostor, I am the real Khadgar!"
    • At the same time, a call to arms was reached out towards him by his Dalaran associates towards the impending invasion of the city by the League of E.V.I.L, led by the infamous Arch-Thief Rafaam. Terrified by the idea of the city being hijacked of its magical valuables, a team-coordinated effort alongside Kalecgos has been made to ensure that anyone linked to the same group will be imprisoned (which is are the ascended founding members).
  • The Defenders of the Ancients believe he was the creator of the Pipe of Insight, formerly known as Khadgar's Pipe of Insight. He has no memory of ever creating said pipe but he decided to humor them by claiming he did it anyway.
  • He personally created a magic crystal ball, known as the Wondrous Wisdomball, that could teach novices on the way of magic or give advice in general. Overtime it grew to become pretty wacky and nonsensical with it's advices, freezing people at random or even casting spells on random targets just for the hell of it, enforcing the belief that he is a pretty shitty wizard. But other times he is been surprisingly helpful, protecting its students from harm of even saving them from a potential threat. The only flaw it has is that it doesn't really distinguish if whoever find is evil or not, so the Wondrous Wisdomball could fall on evil hands and not even realize it.
  • However, all seems lost following the Horde/Alliance wars instigated by the Banshee Queen, now Warchief of the Horde Sylvanas. With the Legion's third invasion thwarted, he hoped a better connection between the two forces, but following her bestowed as Warchief, she brought Azeroth back into the fray of the Alliance and Horde War, and seeing that all his efforts all went for nothing, he became distraught and went back to Karazhan, where he might find a solution to clean the planet away from Sargeras' Sword implanted within the surface. With the Banshee Queen's presence, he has no qualms killing her especially after what she has done after the events that have unfolded.
  • "Knowledge is power."

    Kraft Lawrence and Holo 
Kraft Lawrence and Holo the Wise Wolf, Patron Couple of Divergent Lifespan Lovers (Holo: Horo, the Harvest Goddess, the Wise Wolf of Yoitsu)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5a6e89a6e68ebec5f496e234594a9702.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess (Holo) and Quasideity (Lawrence)
  • Symbol: A bag of wheat.
  • Theme Song: Tabi no Tochuu
  • Alignments: Neutral Good for Lawrence while Chaotic Good for Holo.
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Love, Life And Death, Commerce, Travel, Marriage
  • Allies:
  • Business Partners with: Most merchants and traders (with some exceptions), like The Merchant, The Cabbage Merchant
  • Avoids: Morris (for Lawrence)
  • Enemies: Reynard the Fox, SCP-953, Millenium, Ryuk
  • Conflicting Opinion: Most furries, The Abyss Watchers, The God-Emperor of Mankind
  • Economics in general is a mixed bag. Trading, distribution and even consumption are often varied from time to time, sometimes it gives way to success and other times it won't. Of all those whose lives changed thanks to it, was Kraft Lawrence, a travelling merchant delivering and trading various goods of different companies. His luck changed when he met a certain wolf spirit, by the name of Holo. She was a religious icon of a group and after meeting Lawrence and converting her town to a new religion joined with him with the purpose of visiting her hometown, Yoitsu. After travelling around the province, interacting with numerous people and recalling her memories, she has not only grown fond of Lawrence but would focus on their relationship, to the point of recognizing his short lifespan as a human, thus making her decision to marry Lawrence to enjoy their lives together before his inevitable death.
  • One point in their world, while Lawrence was doing his trading profession, he was struck with a bright white light that blinded him. After it disappeared, he saw what seems to be a courtroom, with people left and right minding their business. There, he questioned the man in the center of all of them until he was told to sit down. There, the committee reviewed his case and much decision-making later, he was given the rite of ascension, with him was the cart, and of all that popped up after the guards carried it back to Lawrence was Holo, taking a nap on it. The rite wasn't just meant for him, it was for the both, as their developed relationship and Holo's decision to marry him is what landed both into the Pantheon, a decision both slowly welcomed.
  • Even after their ascension, the duo often leaves the Pantheon in search of new business trades. Lawrence insisted in doing so to earn a lot considering they can go to different worlds, that was until the House of Commerce presented themselves to the duo, promising them good fortune, and perhaps more spices to try out. Eager on this offer, Lawrence accepted it wholeheartedly, believing a new source of income inside Pantheon grounds and meeting new business partners, some good and some... not so much.
  • An interesting thing to note is that Holo isn't a fox, she would like to iterate being a wolf and human at most cases. Many people as a result mistake her for the former considering her looks until she decided to reveal her true form, allowing her correction to be noted. Some fox deities have talked to her though and she relates to them and in other times, enjoys their company outside of fellow wolves.
    • It should also be noted that she has a hatred of being called a goddess. Her being called an Intermediate Goddess annoyed her the first time she was given a rank, though some deities would like to point out that she does indeed qualify as such with some of her powers as well as being a agriculture goddess being proof of her godhood. This only annoyed her further and has not spoken about it, but if pushed and pressed about it, she somewhat agrees with the statements, which is something she cannot deny about.
  • On the topic of economics, the duo will often engage towards economics considering most of their life has revolved on it due to Lawrence's profession. Thanks to this, Holo not only learned of such, but managed to use her powers as the Harvest Goddess to manipulate and fix certain goods like crops and vegetables, though she only does this when doing so, or when it benefits him to some degree.
    • This led to her first meeting with the Farmer, who asked if he could gather some assistance with his crops, to which she helped in most seasons. However, she did at one point, stop and let some of his crops die during the winter season, as she states that not all things are meant to prosper, and some harvests cannot be gained at certain seasons. This lesson was something he took note of.
  • Wolf-based deities are welcome for her as she has been hopeful to meet some of her kind, something she has been wanting considering Yoitsu, her hometown was destroyed for a long time. Her reactions to most of them have been pleasant as they can understand where she comes from.
    • For Moro, it seems she is partially in agreement with her, as both are wolves with powers akin to gods. The white wolf however notes how Holo isn't a "pure" wolf, but mostly a hybrid considering her ability to shift between her massive wolf form and her regular human form which she uses most of the time. Considering her bond towards humans, she believes that she might be the key for both goddesses and humans to coexist, even as a different species.
    • She would also pity the story of Great Grey Wolf Sif, a great wolf who devoted her life serving the master that tamed her, who also visited their home after Sif told them of their tales and themes. She was seen crying hearing the Great wolf’s eventual fate as well as her master Artorias, after which he saw Holo as a possible companion with her. On the other hand, Lawrence is intrigued by the greatsword she carries through her mouth, as her form of combat was based on it and not by eating, as the Wise Wolf has done in the past.
    • Her romantic tale with a fellow human also sparked conversations with both Bigby Wolf as the two have also entered through their ordeals, with Bigby's protectiveness towards Snow White like her case with Lawrence and Yomi as a kitsune related with him. She was at first shocked hearing that he was the Fables' Big Bad Wolf but ever since he's been changing it to improve his reputation, she was proud to hear his progress, that and him and Snow White has lots of children whereas the duo has one child.
    • Being a human/wolf goddess hybrid would eventually make her meet people who are similar, either a Kumiho or a Kitsune as her similarities of hers with said species are not far-fetched. Which would come eventually with meeting 3 of such, 1 being the kitsune Yomi and 2 who are Kumihos Ahri and SCP-953. On one hand, her similarities with the three would make all of them interact with each other, on the other, only Yomi seems to be the one she befriends with due to their relationships between humans and wolves being similar and possibly Ahri as the two can be lighthearted at times, except when it comes to the latter trying to charm Lawrence, which is something she will never hesitate eating the transgressor. As for SCP-953, let's just say her disgust on her being a picky eater (and a terrifying one at that) prevented the two to interact ever.
    • The couple also managed to meet Hana and the Wolf-Man, who also happened to be a human/wolf-person couple like them. Both couples were quite surprised at the similarities, but became closse confidants because of their similarities. Kraft and Holo were quite saddened by the Wolf-Man's unfortunate fate, but were proud of Hana's dedication to raising her children to the best of her ability.
    • As her day was about to get better, her visit with Amaterasu sparked joy inside her as she has met someone very close to her in both godhood and wolf-like characteristics. The Goddess of the Sun has blessed both her and Lawrence including their child to have a good life and the Wise Wolf would say the same thing to her son Chibiterasu who she finds to be super adorable.
  • Following her successful marriage with Lawrence and the birth of their child Myuri would soon lead to both Naruto Uzumaki and his wife Hinata to visit them as they get to watch their children follow their own adventures whilst they live their lives as parents. When asked if being couple was a hassle, Lawrence would give out some thoughts of being both a merchant and a father to a goddess while Holo would smile all the way of recognizing their love for each other a bond that the four have gone through to earn it.
  • As the Harvest Goddess, she has a few crops she likes but of most of the ones she likes, it would be apples. So much that she would easily win in eating as many apples as possible. Hearing this, a shinigami decided to take some of the apples from her storage and horrified of this backed him off the moment he tried getting at least one. Unfortunately, this shinigami, Ryuk, has no idea what barter trade was, so his response was repeated stealing, of which he would get subsequent steals but was ultimately warded off the moment Lawrence grabbed a few wards. He still tries to steal some apples from her with limited success.
  • Granted she may be a wolf but that has not stopped certain fox deities meeting with the Harvest Goddess eager hearing some wisdom and thoughts on her. First to approach was the cunning Mr. Fox who at first was met with harsh criticism for stealing food until she heard why he had done it in the first place to feed his family. In all fairness, said farmers are cruel in the first place and he is still stealing food but from amoral people, as she can attest meeting with thugs, henchmen and even treacherous merchants. She is willing to grow some crops for him, but he declined as he's rather content to what he has. Meanwhile his meeting with Nick Wilde shows how the past matters to some extent, with her memories and Nick's trauma being all too similar. Thankfully both have moved on and have lived out successful lives at the end.
    • Such day would be spoiled following the meeting with a certain Reynard the Fox, claiming to be a genuinely good person, when in fact he's a trickster who has a terrible reputation of all the crimes he has done on his world, that and his attempts to steal some of their fortune only angered her further and decided to show him her fury by attempting to eat him whole, which failed despite her initial efforts. She has banned him from ever getting close to their temple or get risked to being eaten, to which replied to "having fun angering a goddess around". It wasn't also better hearing a Nazi Organization also has a werewolf under their belt, and that he is arguably more powerful than her, in terms of raw strength, speed and agility. She has learned to avoid him but considering he has his sights on her, it will come a time until he starts hunting her down.
  • As it turns out Holo isn't a first timer when it comes to crossovers, even before her ascension. Hints of her earliest attempt was on a certain game where she appears as a spell spirit of the Omega Wind spell. For those wondering, this is what Holo has shown about this.
    • On the flipside, another crossover happened with her but this time, as an assist character, leading to her being their assistant when it comes to being a medic. This one she actively remembers as she is able to see some of the Pantheon members being a part of that scenario as well, that being Enju who was one of the first who greeted the duo during their return.
  • On the business side of things, Lawrence has overseen it, being the merchant who will pretty much travel a long side with a cart filled with wheat and numerous goods for barter trade. With his ascension, he has tried other packages and goods but stuff like guns and arsenals are not his thing though other goods are pretty much okay with him, just hopeful said packages do not cause a ruckus as he travels back and forth.
    • Thanks to his experience, he has been seen negotiating with a lot of traders, with Recette, Anna and even the Cabbage Merchant being regular customers. This also helps as their packages are the usual objects and goods that are not out of this world, though some argue that Recette's artifacts and some of Anna's available items do have some weird effects on the customer. Nonetheless, he'll be willing to trade with the trio at some point, with the Cabbage Merchant getting a surplus of his own product by courtesy from Holo.
    • Meanwhile, Crazy Dave sees this as one of his best opportunities. He may speak and act weird, but the travelling merchant cannot thank him enough for some of his supplies as well as his specialization of unique plants, some of which are adorable and useful. Even better is his related domains with the Goddess herself as she can help accelerate the growth of Dave's plants, making garden defense much easier. To him, both Lawrence and Holo are his best customers as not only does he help them give plants, but their trades and Holo's reputation as a Harvest Goddess makes growing plants much easier and makes zombie defense less of a hassle.
    • Even with his stance against selling guns and other weapons, the Merchant cannot help but give some offers to Lawrence out of pure interest. Even if both are merchants, he's still hesitant accepting any of his offers, seeing his looks and his said supplies being something out of his experience though when the going gets tough and he'll need more funds, he'll need his help at some point.
    • On the matter of competitive merchants and dangerous businesses, he has noted Morris to be on his blacklist simply because of him trying to scam him with his offers. He has been trying to prove that his business is not shady, but he can easily tell as his experience with rather hostile business conditions have made him less worried. Holo on the other hand has threatened eating him if he doesn't shut up and leave but he told her to stop doing such, as he doesn't to spark another conflict.
    • Outside of the Farmer, he also stumbled upon another farmer, fellow apples grower Johnny Appleseed, who was found planting a few apples into their gardan near the bathhouse. Lawrence appreciates the gesture and has promises to trade him back in return, though he also mentioned how Holo is an avid lover of apples, so when she managed to find the trees that Johnny planted, she ate them all with no sweat, leaving a smiling impression on him. In addition, the goddess decided to give blessings to most of Johnny's growths, a gift from her to him.
    • One day, his business was being reconstructed, a fellow merchant by the name of Tresssa held up her sign as if it was an advertisement in front of his property. He would ask what her interest was but she only came to announce him as if she was holding a contract offer to him, to which he comtemplated it for days. When he arrived to her temple, she was seen with other mercenaries who she hired and after seeing slowly drew his knife, at which she said she has no intention of hurting him though he retorted saying that he already has experience towards merchants with mercenaries, nearly ruining their trust. After the agreement on the contract, the two have agreed to support each other with the delivery and assessment of goods, hopefully so that neither would reach to the point of debt.
  • At some point, Van Hohenheim visited the duo to see how the two were holding up, especially following the entire successful marriage the two partook upon and the birth of their first child, but so far the two have been doing well after establishing their Spice and Wolf bathhouse. Lawrence would ask the same thing to him but he would remain silent on the matter. It wouldn't take long till he would narrate what happened to him and the rest of his relationship with the Elric family, that being that he outlived their mother (hence why he never married in the first place) and might do the same to the Elric brothers, yet at the same time would feel remorse for not being the kind and caring father he should have been. Holo would soon leave hearing this conversation, and with Lawrence following suit, the alchemist had only one thing to say to him.
    Hohenheim: May be not much to ask but, hope you can be a good father regardless of time.
  • The God Emperor's stance towards Holo has been personal, believing her to be a bastard child of Leman Russ in some feudal world, well according to some people. This news of her has left her angry and perhaps infuriated by his comments, then again, Emps has stated his opinion towards wolves being soured thanks to his Primarch's massive obsession towards said culture, to the point that it basically became their own doctrine. While she may understand why and sees it being understandable, that doesn't give the excuse of calling her a bastardized child of one his own sons. One thing the duo does agree on is their stance on godhood, to which the two would agree to stop calling them as godlike deities even if their powers are to alike to lump them into the same category.
    • Speaking of certain people upholding wolf culture, the heralds of Artorias, dubbed the Abyss Watchers have also been slowly worshiping her due to her being a wolf as well, though her size may or may not qualify as a great wolf. Sure, they venerate wolves, she has stated it is too much and that there is a thin line between worship and obsession, which ticks her off considering her stance against being considered a goddess.
  • One day, a group of certain eccentric people were seen debating in front of their temple, with her going out to see what it is the topic at hand. Said people were furries who were debating to whether she is considered as such, with some even calling her as 10% furry and others considering her to be a full-grown furry. Her comments were zero on the matter.
  • The couple's original profile can also be found in Couples Archetypes, under the House of Love and Affection.
  • Holo: "I am not so grand, not as a god. I am Holo, and Holo is all that I am."
  • Lawrence: "I'm not sure what I did to deserve this turn of events, but I just happened to meet a strange wolf. She wants to return to the north, and I made a contract to accompany her. I cannot break that contract. I gave my word."

Porky (now)
Porky before 
  • Intermediate God (formerly a Quasidiety)
  • Symbol: The Pigmask Army insignia (a pig nose)
  • Theme Song: Porky, Porky Means Business, His Highness's Theme, I am Porky, Master Porky's Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Old Friend of Ness, Jerkass, Portly Boy with no Heart, Immortal through Time Travel with the mind of a child, Subordinate of Giygas or His Master, A normal boy to an omnicidal bringer of destruction, Rest on a Spider Tank, Corrupting the Remnant of Humanity, Wants Everyone who annoys him gone, Symbol of Humanity's Flaws
  • Domains: Immaturity, Immortality, Time-Travel
  • Heralds: The Pigmask Army (led by Fassad)
  • Allies: Giygas, Tabuu, Professor Hojo, Kefka Palazzo, Shou Tucker, Dr. Borous, Lord English, Kronika
  • Rivals: Eric Cartman
  • Enemies: Ness, Lucas, Mr. Saturn, The Masked Man/Claus (former underling), Babe, Pantheonic Time Police, The Dahaka, Luka, Alice, and frankly... everyone
  • Porky Minch was just a boy growing up in Onett with his family and his neighbor, Ness and his family. One day, a meteor crashed into a hilltop and his life completely changed once he made contact with the Universal Cosmic Destroyer, Giygas. He became Giygas's biggest minion until his defeat at the hands of Ness and his friends, where he escaped in time until he began terrorizing Tazmily Island and ruined the life of one boy, Lucas.
  • Because of his abuse of time traveling, he ended up becoming physically frail, blue-skinned, and immortal. As the result, he is seen most of the time resting on his spider walker for transportation. Even if he wasn't, he'd still be riding in it because he's fat.
  • His final fate involves being trapped inside the Absolutely Safe Capsule for eternity as it is a one-way entry to ensure "absolute safeness." Considering that he hated everyone and his nihilism, he probably doesn't view it as A Fate Worse Than Death. However, it appears that Porky is not inside the Capsule.
  • Appears to be affiliated with Tabuu and the Subspace Army as one of its generals. He sent one of his King Statues to ambush Lucas in a ruined zoo until the untimely rescue of Ness, where he personally appears to fight the two psychic children. He was defeated, vowing to get back at those two.
    • Oddly, he seem completely absent when Galeem tried to destroy the universe as he does not appear as a Spirit. It is believed that the Absolutely Safe Capsule ended up saving him from transforming into a Spirit, though the Capsule turn into a spirit itself...
  • Greedy, obnoxious, and lustful for power and destruction, he is disgusted by some because of his pig motif. Babe certainly does not like him for not only being a terrible person but was also responsible for taking the life of a child's mother.
  • He is currently wanted by the Time Police and the Dahaka for his abuse of time travel which not only affected his body and morality, but also altering a separate world at a separate time to be much like his old world and time.
    • Because of his agelessness, he entered several other worlds or time periods prior to Nowhere Island. One world he went into is the land of Gensokyo and cause terrible mischief for the inhabitants.
  • Porky is still shown to love his mother, Lardna Minch, with robotic duplicates of her found working in the Beauty & Tasty restaurant in New Pork City, despite being as abusive as his father. However, seeing happiness of others, especially those with a mother, is likely to upset him.
  • He is detested by animal lovers as his scientists in the Pigmask Army transformed the animals of Nowhere Island into chimeras, fusion of multiple creatures or mechanical creatures that are harmful to human life, of which Porky believes would be "better" than the peaceful animals. Porky found interest in some of the mad biologists in the Pantheon to "improve" some of the annoying animals in the Pantheon.
    • Luka and Alice dislike him because of his science that led to the creation of grotesque creatures known as chimeras as weapons, just as what Promestein created.

Lesser Gods

    Kagura 
Kagura, Goddess of Maturity Based on Physical Age (The Destroyer of Yoma, Master Kagura)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/child_kagura_dbrn8ls_1.png
Teen and Adult Kagura 
True Kagura 
  • Lesser Goddess (Child, Teen), Intermediate Goddess (Adult), Greater Goddess (True Kagura)
  • Symbol: Her flower-marked eyes
  • Theme Music: Power of the Red Orb, Future of Resolution as True Kagura
  • Alignment: True Neutral as a child, Lawful Neutral a Teen and Adult, Chaotic Neutral as True Kagura
  • Portfolio: Maturity Based on Physical Age, MacGuffin Super Person, Demon Slaying, Space Master, Will Explode If She Keeps On Fighting On Her Fully Powered State
  • Domains: Reincarnation, Space, Age, Mentalism
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Orochi, The Mikami, Dougen, demonic entities in the Pantheon
  • In the shinobi world, there exist legends of a being calling herself Kagura. Having existed at least over 900 years, she has simple objectives: transform into human form from the Reincarnation Orb, grow stronger by killing yoma and eating their Reb Orbs, crystallized essences of their life force, proceed to destroy as many yoma as possible when she has fully awakened, and return back to Reincarnation Orb when her powers are too much for her to handle. This cycle will continue every 100 years until all yoma are eliminated.
    • As her power grows, so does her appearance. And with that, her mentality. In her weakest form, she started as an innocent Cheerful Child, though she later started to develop a playfully serious side. As she is growing, she turns into a mature but still oblivious teenager concern on growing stronger. As she is starting to reach the peak of her power, she becomes a somewhat arrogant adult, ready to slay yoma. If she reaches full awakening, she will become a berserker who will destroy everything in her hunt (though she has learned to not reach full berserker stage). She mainly alters between her Child and Adult appearance depending on the situation, with True form being reserved for then she needs to pull her weight and Teenager form rarely getting any use.
    • Also note that all of that are tied to the Red Orbs. She can actually grow weaker and smaller if you knock them out of her. We don't recommend eating the Red Orbs. Outside of Kagura, they have some interesting effects.
  • Her role as a demon slayer is at an interesting place as of now. She promised that she will not slay yoma anymore, as she is at stage where if she were to move on killing them, the power would drive her body to the limit, killing her and creating such heat that the after-effect would demolish the entire region of Kyoto. However, since that is only the case with yoma, she could kill other demons without any problem. Though as of now, she is mostly concerned on preventing yoma from manifesting in the first place.
  • Dante seemed to have offered her few jobs to get some off his back and see if she can slay normal demons jut fine. Kagura hasn't really accepted any of them since DMC demons tend to drop red orbs as well and she's not risking the potential reaction they would have on her.
  • Kagura is rather friendly forwards Kamui, as both of them are saviours of sort destined to awake periodically. And due the fact that Kagura decided to finally go against her fate, Kamui wonders if she can do the same.
  • She has gotten the interest of Palkia, as her fighting style mainly consist of her literally ripping the fabric of space open to create blades of energy.
  • There is some questions regarding who "the One who brings peace"/"the Almighty" she is referring to, as she claims to be the messenger of that person. Not even she is sure on it. However, considering the theming of her strongest attacks, as some of her taunts of her power, it seems that the One might be someone from the Shinto Pantheon.
    • Speaking of which, Susano'o was rather annoyed of another deity using his name for something (that being Kagura's Ultimate Ninja Art). However, when he considered what she might be, and how she killed Orochi, he isn't going to bother with her.
  • She spends quite a lot of time in House of Food, as she likes to experience new types of food, as she never had much time in her multiple reincarnations to do that.

    Kira Daidouji 
Kira Daidouji, Goddess of Improbable Age (The genius elementary school student striving for world domination, Kiraran, Swimsuit Lady, Kira Daidohji)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara18_a.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A figure of herself made out of blue slime
  • Theme Music: Poolside Dynamite!
  • Alignment: Fancies herself as Lawful Evil, though is more like Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: School Swimsuit, Forced To Go To Middle School Even Though She Has a PhD., Enfant Terrible, Motion Capture Blob Monster, Making a Splash, Take Over the World, Wrestling, Jerkass
  • Domains: Science, Costumes, Water, Slimes, Conquest, Youth
  • Allies: Catherine Kyoubashi, Dr. Eggman, Mei-Fang Dr. Wily, The Brain, Mao, Waldstein
  • Rivals: Kokonoe A. Mercury (self-proclaimed), Nitori Kawashiro
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Heart Aino
  • Enemies: Angelia Avalonne, Scharlachrot, world destroyers (how is she going to conquer the world without the world!?)
  • There were some discussion on what position Kira would apply to, ranging from School Swimsuit or Compulsory School Age. However, Kira denied all of those suggestions and insisted that she should get the position of Evil Child Genius. Due of her having a PhD. at a age of eleven, and already having plans to world domination (even if she has to begrudgingly help heroes constantly due of Evil Versus Oblivion), she was able to snatch the spot.
  • Tries to be with other evil geniuses in the Pantheon, but due of her needing to spend time in the Academy, she hardly ever has the time for that. As such, the only one she is really gets to spend time with is The Brain.
    • She also gets surprisingly fine with Mao. Even his "perverted" moments don't really mind her, as she already knows a professor who's a pervert. Plus the fact that two of them do have friends they care about, as much as it doesn't seem like it.
  • Fancies herself as a rival for Kokonoe, saying that ether and seith aren't that different. Kokonoe for the most part ignores her.
  • Multiple wrestling gods are surprised how well she can reform some grappling moves. Even of she needs a help of her slime to pull them off.
  • Has tried going into the House of Otherness to gather up Slimes to create new versions of her slime creation. And there is one rumour that she is trying to capture Arakune to do a similar thing...
  • Wants Tsukuyomi to keep her hands away from her. Yes, they might sound a like, but that doesn't mean she tolerates that psycho's behaviour. She seems to not have anything against Negi Springfield, even if he mistook her to Tsukuyomi once.
  • No family relation with Tomoyo Daidouji. Or the Daidouji who's in the opposite end of the size spectrum.

  • Heralds: Kaeden, his second-in-command
  • Allies: Xenomorph Drone, Noob Saibot, Megaguirus, The Terraformars, Shelob
  • Rivals: Beelzebub, Queen Sectonia
  • Enemies: Jak and Daxter, Samos and Keira Hagai, Ratchet, Clank, HerakleKabuterimon, Leto Atreides II
  • Feared by: Misty
  • In a binding contract with: The Old Gods
  • The chief of an ancient race of beasts known as the Hora Quan (Or as the humans call them, Metal Heads), Kor led his army against the Precursors a number of centuries ago, resulting in an unknown number of casualties on the Precursors' side. By stealing one of their rift gates, the Hora Quan were able to use it to travel to the planet where the humans lived. Hundreds of years later, Kor had succeeded in turning the once-pristine Sandover Village into a Crapsack World, led by an almost-equally immoral general named Baron Praxis, who nonetheless saw the Metal Heads as a danger to the city's infrastructure.
  • Not too long after a group of humans from the past were imprisoned by Praxis' police force after arriving in Haven, Kor had ordered his lieutenant Kaeden to begin a preliminary invasion on the city. Over the course of the next two years, Kaeden led the second-rate Metal Bugs to infest the city walls; meanwhile, the lieutenant himself stepped into the city masqueraded as a human inspector who closed down every pest-exterminating company in the city. Kaeden's reputation as an irritable and unpleasable critic sent shivers down the spine of every fumigator, for they knew his presence marked the end of their livelihoods. The very last of these businesses, Kridder Ridder, proved to be an unexpectedly strong factor in defeating these nuisances, courtesy of a certain "Daxter" fellow. Although Kaeden eventually managed to shutter Kridder Ridder as well, the Metal Bugs' invasion would ultimately flop. Kor was aware that his first wave of threats wasn't working, and announced to his subordinate that he had a brilliant scheme should Daxter overcome the Metal Bugs entirely. Predictably, Daxter was able to exterminate Kaeden and reunite with his friend, a light-haired prisoner named Jak. Little did the two of them know, the Metal Head commander had been waiting for them outdoors...
  • Kor had gone a step above Kaeden when it came to his scheme; whereas Kaeden was antagonistic and middle-aged, Kor had taken on the form of an old man and developed a much calmer persona. This allowed him to get close to the members of the Haven City Underground Movement (Which Jak had become a recruit for) for a while, succeeding in all of the fields where Kaeden had failed by not making himself look even remotely irascible. In the process, he manipulated an unknowing Jak into retrieving the last Precursor egg from the Tomb of Mar, believing he could absorb the essence inside of it to strengthen himself and bring a golden age to the Metal Heads. He also knew that while Jak couldn't open the egg because his dark eco infusion had tainted his body, his younger self had not yet been corrupted with the material and therefore was able to hatch it. With the revelation that the Precursors themselves are actually ottsels and the essences mere holograms, this leaves the true purpose of the egg a mystery, even to the somewhat-knowledgeable Kor.
  • Upon reevaluating his concept of a human masquerade and the complexity of his plans with the Precursor Stone, the other members of the House of Age & Youth elected to ascend him, giving him another chance to create a new generation of Metal Heads and find yet another way to obliterate Haven City. Not to mention, having learned from an unknown source that the Precursors were still well and alive, he aimed to tear apart their society until nothing remained. Of course, he could not simply repeat the same trick he used prior, which meant he would have to search elsewhere for aid.
    • Once Keira and Samos learned of his ascension, they immediately warned Jak and Daxter that the Metal Heads would resurge soon. Nowadays, the two of them will search the Wasteland deserts in hopes of finding the Hora Quan and ensuring they won't accomplish their goals.
  • While scouring the Wasteland outside the border of Haven, he ran into a colossal, dragonfly-like kaiju named Megaguirus, who just happened to be looking for prey someplace without being greeted by decked-out human militaries pointing their weapons at her. Kor explained that whatever her deal was, she would have to ally herself with the Hora Quan and promised that both parties would gain an advantage once they warmed up to each other. Luckily for Kor, Megaguirus didn't give them any hassle and soon allied herself and her subordinates, the Meganulon, with the Metal Head army.
  • In the weeks that followed, the Metal Head-Meganulon alliance gained traction; evil deities from the Insects and Arthropods houses like the Terraformars and Shelob, respectively, saw it as a call to strengthen their reputations and got on the boat. Strangely enough, even non-arthropods like Noob Saibot respected Kor for his dedication to ridding the universe of the Precursors, stopping by every so often to summon the forces of Netherrealm when Kor's alliance was in dire straits.
    • Not all, though, have wished to make themselves a part of this alliance. For one, there's Beelzebub; he is aware that affiliating himself with another master would mean betraying Lucifer, his current superior, — in response, he has informed the entire GUAC Lords of Chaos to oppose the Hora Quan alliance. Queen Sectonia also refuses to join because of her horrible experiences with the previously-mentioned Terraformars and her finding the Metal Heads and everyone else involved in the team-up to be just as repulsive in appearance.
    • He has also developed a potent hatred for Leto Atreides II, who like him can take on both a human and an invertebrate form (Though not an arthropod, but an annelid in Leto's case). The rationale for his hatred of Shai-Hulud are the Sandworms' generally Lawful-aligned mentality in contrast to the destructive behavior of the Metal Heads, as well as him believing that Shai-Hulud might have signed a pact with the Precursors to help them against the Hora Quan, which explains the Sandworms having acting so aggressively toward them the minute they met.
  • He's also gotten along well with a certain chest-bursting race of extraterrestrials called the Xenomorphs. This comes as a surprise to almost every other deity because of their tendency to be on horrible terms with pretty much everyone they encounter. This partnership may have come to be due to them having the same thirst for violence as the Metal Heads, their gray-skinned bodies, and Kor himself having a few things in common with the Xenomorph Queen caste (I.e. Long and thick tail, giant ovular heads, largest member of their respective races, and both capable of reproduction).
  • Given that Kor's selfishness has sparked quite a few protests from his partners already, Kaeden and the Metal Bug Hive Queens (Being more arthropod-like in nature than any of the mainline Metal Head species) have been considerate enough lately to assist with calming them down. Unbeknownst to Kor, they have long talked about overthrowing their overlord, uneasy over the fact that he will continue mistreating them and take all of the credit once he ultimately gets around to eradicating all of Precursorkind. But for now, Kaeden and company act as though they are undyingly obedient to the cause they have abided by for the past several centuries.
  • The Nerubian, Qiraj, and Mantid races eventually heard about the Metal Head conglomeration, in turn prompting them to announce to the Old Gods that siding with them would be entirely beneficial. Although one of them (C'Thun) has a close partnership with Kor's rival Sectonia, the others have agreed to allow Kor to operate as a double-agent, so long as he doesn't decide to backstab any of his partners (Which, due to Kor's tendency to view anyone other than himself as tools, is rather probable).

  • Demigods, Lucy is a potential Overdeity with her Stand, Ticket to Ride
  • Symbol: The Steel Ball Run trophy
  • Theme Song: Last Train Home
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Old Man Marrying a Child (actually an Intergenerational Friendship), Ugly Guy, Hot Wife
  • Domains: Marriages, Age, Friendship
    • Stephen: Entrepreneurship, Races
    • Lucy: Probability, Attraction
  • Allies: Johnny Joestar, Gyro Zeppeli, Jonathan Joestar, Erina Pendleton, Robert E. O. Speedwagon, their universe’s Josuke Higashikata, Jotaro Kujo, Jolyne Cujoh, Solid Snake, Madoka Kaname, Roland Deschain, Jesse McCree, Raiden (Metal Gear), The Boss, Theodore Roosevelt, Jade Chan and Tohru
  • Enemies: Funny Valentine, Dio Brando, Enrico Pucci, Steven Armstrong, Roose Bolton, Ramsay Bolton, Randall Flag, rapists, The Enclave
  • Opposes: Diego Brando, Solidus Snake
  • Arriving on horseback, Lucy and Stephen Steel reunited with Johnny and Gyro once they heard Funny Valentine returned in the Pantheon. They’re grateful but Johnny is miffed that he owes both of them a few more debts. They managed to ascend under a rather Squick title much to their chagrin. Once one hears of their backstory though, it becomes more understandable. Stephen met a child Lucy when he was going through a rough patch in his life, to which she gave him the basic rundown of the Steel Ball Run race which got him back on his feet. They met again years later but not in the best circumstances, as Lucy’s father was forced her to be pimped to a gang. Stephen hatched a plan to rescue Lucy, resulting in their marriage. Fortunately unlike some old people, Stephen doesn’t treat Lucy as a wife and the two have a strong platonic relationship with one another.
  • Applies to both of them
    • Were initially confused why there are multiple JoJos and Zeppelis, another Dio, another person who had the surname of Pendleton, and a guy named Speedwagon who looks a bit like Mountain Tim. Johnny explained to them the original JoJo universe, getting them up to speed. Though they wonder why Johnny had to include the part about the dancing gangsters. They get along with the mainline Joestar lineage well enough. They also noted how much Jonathan’s descendants contrasted with him by a mile, something that irks Jonathan until now.
    • The two were pleased to see a number of heroic cowboy deities were in the pantheon, who's convictions and geniality remind them of Mountain Tim. Given the era they come from, fondness for cowboys comes with the territories. They were also glad to learn of Theodore Roosevelt and his achievements as president from 1901-1909. It's not know if T.R exists in the SBR universe or if he becomes president, but he'll certainly try to.
    • Both are uncomfortable around Solidus Snake for being similar to Funny Valentine in some ways. The know he had good reasons for his villainy but those parallels don’t allow them to have a higher opinion on him. They find themselves siding with Solid Snake and Raiden because of it.
    • The idea of Armstrong ever becoming president is a worrying idea for them, regarding his vision for America to be a chaotic counterpart to Valentine's vision. What Randall Flagg did to the part of America he took over was particuarly hellish for them, as was the Enclave who might be even more xenophobic than what Valentine's America would be.
  • Exclusive to Stephen:
    • Stephen Steel is the organizer and host of the Steel Ball Run race, a great horse racing event. He's been interested in the various horse deities in the House of Ungulates. Centaur Man was annoyed that he wasn't allowed to participate since he's not technically riding a horse.
    • Wondered how the Pantheon’s economy works so he went to the House of Commerce to check. There he met Nigel West Dickens, a merchant from the Wild West who showed him the ropes around the place. Stephen knows that Nigel is likely trying to wrap him in some scheme but considering he got wrapped into an incident about a monkey dressed as an alien that destroyed his reputation for awhile, he’s sure he can handle whatever Nigel can cook up.
    • Is a bit miffed that there are still people who still thinks he’s a Dirty Old Man for his wife alone. He shares this with Jon Arryn who did get a wife to have an heir and the two became drinking buddies. At least they aren’t the Boltons. He's pretty creeped out by Walder Frey by, along with generally utterly contemptible and a Slimeball, being a very dirty and very old man who marries young girls. Jade and Tohru were weirded out, but calmed down and got along with the too when realizing their marriage was really an Intergenerational Friendship.
    • Bonded with Foo Fighters over their hairstyles being similar. They really don’t like it when someone makes fun of their hair and call them “eggshells”.
  • Exclusive to Lucy:
    • Lucy gained the Stand, Ticket to Ride once the Holy Corpse absorbed itself into her which practically makes her invincible. As the Holy Corpse is locked up, she doesn’t have access to this power and people whether or not it actually is her Stand or not.
    • Made friends with Haru Okumura, who was going to be married but got out of it. Also made friends with Sakura who Lucy is pretty surprised at how stable she is after all the hardships she went through in life. She and Stephen met Madoka Kaname and Lucy sees Madoka as a little sister she never had. Madoka is surprised that she and Lucy are closer to the same age than it seems.
    • Once got pregnant with the head of Jesus. No, we are not joking. She got better though and can safely say she has experienced a virgin birth. Ned Flanders went into confused panicking at how unorthodox this was to his fundamentalist Christian faith, however he remains friendly to Lucy herself. The House of Religion and Faith wants to understand how it works.
    • Still doesn’t like Diego. Sure, the Attempted Rape wasn’t actually from him but a Diego from another reality, he’s still an asshole through and through. Still, neither of them are as bad as the OG Dio Brando. And she hates rapists due to Funny Valentine's Attempted Rape of her.

  • Harold was a wealthy but very gloomy young man who suffocated under a controlling and distant mother. He was obsessed with death, faking suicides for a hobby and attending the funerals of strangers. Then one day, at a funeral, he met Maude, whose carefree liveliness belied her advanced age. Harold became fascinated with her way of life, so different from his own. The two wound up falling in love and starting a romance. But then, on Maude's 80th birthday, she took an overdose of sleeping pills with the intent to die, believing that 80 is the right age to do so. Harold tried rushing her to the hospital, but she had it her way and passed on. Despite his sadness at losing his first serious love, Harold decided he would follow Maude's example and embrace life while it lasted.
  • Maude of course ascended after her death and it was explained to her that several gods wished for her and Harold to rule over the domain of May–December Romance. Maude took the existence of the Pantheon and being made a goddess in stride, as expected of someone with her easygoing personality, but insisted that Harold be left to live out his earthly life without any of this divine business interfering in it, so her influence on him wouldn't go to waste and he doesn't become emotionally dependent on her. So for quite a while it was only her ruling over her domain and wreaking her particular brand of benign havoc in the Pantheon. In due time, Harold came up and the two were happy to be reunited after so much time.
  • Their temple is an easily recognizable one: an abandoned train car, made very homely and cozy by Maude. There are pots of flowers seemingly bursting out of every window, as Maude is quite fond of flora, especially sunflowers. Her love for plants is something she has in common with Chance the Gardener, who once stopped at the temple when he realized how many flowers were around it and took to giving some of them care, in his simple-minded drive to garden. Rather than get angry, Maude was quite pleased to have such a nice visitor and had Chance come in for tea. Many would have gotten annoyed at Chance's lack of intelligence, or indeed interest in talking about anything but gardening, but Maude easily accepts his quirks and appreciates his particular brand of wisdom, limited as it is, so it seems as if Chance has found a friend who actually understands how he is. Harold can't help but feel second-hand embarrassment at how many "educated" people took Chance as seriously as they did.
  • One time Maude decided to spontaneously move a tree from an urban sidewalk to a greener place. Nothing she hadn't done before, although some deities protested what she was doing. That was when a blonde woman in loose clothing came to her defense; that was Phoebe Buffay, who being a free-spirited, nature-loving hippie girl herself, was sympathetic to what Maude was trying to do. They have been good friends since, even if Phoebe was momentarily freaked out by Maude and Harold's relationship, as it reminded her of her younger brother hooking up with his much older teacher. But she got over that, so she got over this too. Chandler couldn't help but make a sarcastic quip that Phoebe had brought her future self back in time when he first met Maude.
  • As you can guess from the above tree incident, Harold and Maude can be a headache for authority figures in the Pantheon due to their blatant (though not aggressive) disrespect for them. It doesn't help that Maude Drives Like Crazy, or that she is pretty skilled in charming her way out of a cop's sight. Speaking of driving, she also thinks nothing of "borrowing" other people's cars without asking, which combined with her reckless driving, makes her a nightmare for any car owner in the Pantheon. Oh, and rumor has it that she likes going in churches and other temples to paint smiles on the statues' faces. Nobody has actually caught her doing it, but the incidence of such things has suspiciously shot up since her ascension. And let's not forget Harold and Maude's little act to get Harold out of enlisting in the army at his mother's behest. A lot of military figures can't forgive them for the insult, although some find it Actually Pretty Funny.
  • Regardless of there being some who find the enormous age disparity to be disturbing, if not disgusting (that was pretty much how everyone back in Harold and Maude's world reacted to their romance), the House of Love as a whole seems to consider their relationship very sweet, inspiring and worthy of celebration, naysayers be damned. Their relationship and the divisiveness it creates in people has garnered them the sympathy of the married couple Stephen and Lucy Steel, who are respectively 51 and 14 years old. As soon as they explained the circumstaces behind the marriage and that their relationship was really an Intergenerational Friendship, Maude had no problem accepting them as allies. Harold remains a little weirded out, but still followed Maude's lead on the matter.
    • They've also gained the friendship of the couple consisting of Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono, due to their relationship dynamics being so similar. Both couples are cases of Opposites Attract, consisting of gloomy, pessimistic boys paired with far more vivacious and quirky women. Harold and Kousei have a fair bit to talk about considering their girlfriends were the key to them becoming more well-rounded people, not to mention the fact that they both died in the end, leaving Harold and Kousei to continue life without them.
  • Like many things, music is something Maude taught Harold to truly appreciate. Maude refers to it as "the cosmic dance". She's able to play at least the piano, while Harold was inspired by her to take up the banjo. Their brand of improvised music doesn't mesh very well with the classically trained Kousei and Kaori, but it was a hit with a different couple: Greg Universe and Rose Quartz. Greg is a former rock singer who never quite abandoned music and passed his love for it down to his son Steven. Greg appreciates Harold and Maude's music for its heart, despite its simplicity. Rose Quartz seems admiring of Harold and Maude's relationship and values, considering them a good example of why she decided to live with humans and fight for their freedom. As per usual, Maude and to a lesser extent Harold don't seem fazed by Rose Quartz' strange nature or story and gladly accept the couple as friends.
  • It doesn't come up a lot, as Maude isn't particularly interested in talking about it, but she is a Holocaust survivor, as indicated by the code tattooed on her arm. It most likely has something to do with her decision to live life free and to the fullest. Either way, while she may not talk about that time, she seems pretty willing to seek out and befriend other Holocaust survivors who have made it into the Pantheon, paying particular attention to one Sophie who had to make an infamous Sadistic Choice. Maude doesn't try to comfort her or even slightly bring up what happened back then, judging it useless, but she keeps her company as much as she can to cheer her up.
    • It's probably not a surprise that, conversely, Nazis pretty much despise the couple, as Maude is obviously one of the "undesirables" and their loving relationship is a prime example of degeneracy, according to their values. So is Harold's hobby of staged suicides, by the way. Of course, the couple couldn't care less what anyone thinks of them or what they do. In fact, the two seem to enjoy vandalizing the Nazis' hardware in various creative ways, such as painting flowers and such, making them a minor nuisance to members of that group.
