Also called "The Silver Heavens", This sub house is home to beauty beyond imagining, buildings made from pure silver, gold, or often Clouds, due to being located in the sky. Many gods confuse it for Main House. It is directly above the House of Demons.



Manwë Sulimo, Holy Representative of Angelic Councils (Sulimo, Manawenzu, Valahiru)
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: The Sun and the Moon
  • Theme: King Of Kings
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Angel Leadership, Fictional Representatives of Archangel Michael, Eru's Right Hand Valar, Brother to Melkor, Limited Understanding of Evil, Incorruptibility
  • Domains: Good, Faith, Leadership, Air, Day and Night
  • Followers: Michael Demiurgos
  • Superior: Eru Illuvatar
  • Allies: Archangel Michael, Cosmos, Mata Nui, all good-aligned angels (especially Tyrael), the GUAG, Fiamma, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, Thrall, Vol'jin, Aragorn, Samwise Gamgee, Bahamut, Reshiram, Zekrom, Princess Celestia and Luna, Altaria, Gandalf
  • On good terms with: All good-aligned light deities
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork With: Eliphas, Lucifer
  • Opposes: Metatron
  • Enemies: Melkor(as much as he wishes it wasn't the case), Sauron, Ungoliant, YHVH, Satan (both of them), Azmodan, Warboss Ghazghkull, Smaug, Acnologia
  • Manwe Sulimo was created with Melkor by Eru Illuvatar himself, brothers in His thought. While Melkor was the mightiest of the Valar, Manwe knew his creator the most. When Melkor fell, Manwe would rise to become leader of the Valar, and Eru's most trusted creation. It was to no surprise that Manwe would ascend ot the pantheon.
  • Manwe possesses power near to Melkor, but because of a limited understanding of evil has a hard time dealing with it. Eru got him to enter the GUAG in order to properly deal with Melkor and his ilk. Currently he's somewhere between "doesn't think Melkor is misguided" and "isn't doing this for daddy Eru to notice him". The Dark Lord shares no love for his brother, always seeing him as a troublesome pest. Even before his fall he never cared much, seeing Manwe as "an unambitious bother." He flew into a rage learning his twin now entered the pantheon.
  • Manwe's duties as Valar involve the winds and airs as his servants. As such, he is a patron of the House of Wind and Air, with Altaria as an close ally. The original lights of Arda were crafted by Manwe, but they were destroyed by Melkor. Manwe helped to replace them with Thule, resulting in the sun and the moon. As such, he serves as an honorary godfather to Luna and Celestia.
  • He is really good friends with Archangel Michael. He reminds the Valar of both his comrade Aule, and himself in terms of personality and rank. Together, the two serve as the moral center for the House of Angels. Together, they dream of a day where angels are always some type of good. Generally gets along well with the other good-aligned members of the House of Angels, serving as their co-leader with Michael. He's particularly fond with Tyrael, because he puts good above law.
  • Has learned of many races or concepts in the pantheon who's Middle-Earth counterparts were servants of Melkor. Happily, they were not Always Chaotic Evil in the pantheon, varying greatly in morality. Manwe is spending time getting to know them. In the House of Dragons, Manwe gets along with the kind-hearted dragons like Bahamut, Reshiram and Zekrom. Together, they serve to fight against Melkor's twisted variation of dragons.
  • Due to their reputation across the board of being Always Chaotic Evil, Manwe had a negative opinion on the House of Demons. To an extent, his fears were founded due to a number of evil beings dwelling in it(Azmodan in particular proven rather repellent). However some proved merely to be "different" rather than evil. A later visit of the House of Fantastic Races revealed, to his joy, of good-aligned "monstrous" gods. Thrall and Vol'jin have joined with Manwe so that they may improve their races' reputation.
  • YHVH once tried to take advantage of Manwe's worldview, to convince him that Evil IS Chaos and should join him to expunge it; citing Melkor as a major example of this. He quickly learned that Manwe is nowhere near as naive to think that, declared free will a gift from Eru and demanded YHVH stop claiming otherwise. Silently, Manwe is kind of pissed that Eru doesn't deal with YHVH, but knows there is some ineffable reason.
  • Was pleased to discover YHVH had a good(relatively speaking) angel in Gabriel, and has chosen to try and make her see the light, turning against the Mad God of Law. Sadly, Gabriel refused - her loyalty to her master is unbreakable. However, she did acknowledge Manwe has many good points, and stated she intends to start work on the Law Alliance to remind them that the true goal of Law is and always must be Salvation, something she bitterly knows has been pushed into the backburner in favor of Submission and Obedience along with Charity and Justice. Currently, Manwe's working with Mata Nui, Eiki Shiki and Eliphas to better the GUAL.
  • Manwe hates, hates Metatron. He sees him as a complete bastardization of what he stands for; being a mindless puppet of dogmatic order. Metatron hates him for, in his eyes, not being loyal enough to his Creator. In general, Manwe has a low opinion of YHVH's angels. Yes, angelic figures should be lawful, but being good should always play precedent.
  • Has a varied relationship with the Satans/Lucifers of the pantheon. He sees the two in his own house as enemies (especially the Castlevania one for being like his brother), but does respect YHVH's Satan because he's not a puppet of his master; he will oppose The Great Will if He proves too immoral. And of course, he considers the Satan of South Park ineffectual, if thankfully a bit of a softie. In the fight against YHVH, Manwe has a tenuous alliance of convenience with Lucifer. While he's fully aware of the Lightbringer's amorality, he feels that the embodiment of free will cannot possibly be as bad as his brother.
  • Dismisses The Beast's claims that he is the originator of all evil; he personally witnessed Melkor spread discord at the dawn of time, and believes the Beast is merely pretending to be the source of all woe. With the presence of beings like Nekron and Krona however, Manwe wonders if he should rethink this(though this may be some fledgling desire to find something not completely horrible about his brother).

Greater Gods

Imperius, God of Heavenly Armies (Archangel of Valor, Imp, The Asshole Angel)

Jibril, Goddess of Unconventional Angels (Gabriel)

Sanguinius, God of Angelic Beauty (Primarch of the Blood Angels, The Angel, The Pure One, The Fabulous Fucking Hawkboy)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A Sanguinary Guard Death Mask
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (his chapter is Lawful Good but turns into a dangerous brand of Chaotic Neutral under the effects of Black Rage)
  • Portfolio: Angelic Beauty, Gentle Giant, Friendly Neighborhood Vampire, Lightning Bruiser, Heroic Sacrifice
  • Domains: Law, Good, Strength, War, Protection
  • Superior: The Emperor of Mankind
  • Allies: Leman Russ, Vulkan, Sergant Cyrus, Seraph Lamington, Flonne, Artina, Valvatorez, Karin Kanzuki, Rachel Alucard, Adrian Tepes, Colette Brunel
  • Enemies: All four Chaos Gods, Abaddon the Despoiler, The C'Tan, Mork and Gork, Dracula, Lucifer
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Alexander Anderson
  • Widely believed that if Horus is Satan to the Emperor's God then Sanguinius is Jesus
    • Sanguinius died for your sins...Just like Optimus Prime does on a daily basis.
  • In the 41st millennium, an Imperium wide celebration called Sanguinala is held by Humanity to honor his sacrifice
  • Though Sanguinius is very much active in the eternal war against Chaos and all enemies of Mankind within the Pantheon, the cruel reality is that his avatar upon the mortal realm is deceased after his great sacrifice. For a long time it was believed that the Angel had no means of influencing the mortal plain (much to the great satisfaction of Chaos), then rumor began to spread across the Pantheon of the Sanguinor.
    • A strange and mysterious entity began to take action across the galaxy, appearing as an glorious figure clad in golden armor and possessing of angelic wings, the Sanguinor came to the assistance of the Blood Angels during their darkest hours such as the Khartas Incident. The Exemplar of the Host mysteriously materialized and defeated the daemons of Khorne assailing the Sons of Sanguinius, including the infamous Bloodthirster, Ka'Bandha before vanishing just as mysteriously.
      • Little is known about the Sanguinor but many Gods theorize that it is the manifested embodiment of Sanguinius's nobility come to defend the Blood Angels and in extension Mankind, from the forces of Chaos and any other that dare threaten them
  • Asura is forbidden from getting within 500 feet of anyone from the Blood Angels chapter unless Sanguinius is present. This has less to do with actual bad intent as it has to do with him having the effect of provoking the Black Rage. Even one of them losing it has the potential to kill lots of innocent people.
  • Dracula has been trying to provoke the Black Rage in his chapter. He responded by breaking Dracula in half. It took weeks for Drac to recover from that.
  • Some members of the House of Theater has tried to pass through the strange idea of making an "improved verision" of Twilight, taking place in the Grimdarknes of the Future, with Sanguinius, a Sister of Battle and Leman Russ casting as the better versions of Edward, Bella and Jacob. Problem is that nobody wants to bring up the idea for the potential stars in case they deem it heretical.
  • Despite possessing great love for all of his children (even if he is greatly bothered by their flaws), The Emperor loves Sanguinius far more than all of the others due to his heroic sacrifice during the Horus Heresy. To this day, The Emperor has forbidden any ill words to be made against the Pure One.
  • Upon the orders of the Emperor, Much like Vulkan and Leman Russ, he personally will take part in the "Deep Strike" front while deploying the entire Blood Angels chapter of Adeptus Astartes to Madoka's defense in "The Pantheonic Rebellion".
  • Also has a spot in the House of Personal Appearance.

    Satan (Castlevania
Satan, God of Fallen Angels (The Prince of Darkness, Lucifer The Fallen. Unholy One, Fallen Angel, King of Hell)
Click here  to see his stronger form
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Devil Mask
  • Theme Song: The Final Confrontation (In his original form), Satan (In his Stronger Form)
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Return to Heaven and topple God, Fights with a blood red ornate spear, Capable of using Light magic, Capable of using dark magic, pale, white skin and numerous veins appearing in his face and body, Doesn't wear clothes, Corrupted The Lords of Shadow in to the monsters they had become, Capable of possessing others, Able to create black slime constructs, He can light others on fire
  • Domains: Hell, Light, Manipulation, Fire, Dark, Magic
  • Followers: The Lone Power
  • Allies: The Beast, Mr. Scratch, Grima, Shinnok, Dormammu, Randall Flagg, Jack of Blades, Father Balder, The Kurgan, Mundus, Davy Jones, The Incubators, CLU 2, Yami, Fortinbras, Mard Geer, Bob and George
  • Enemies: Gabriel Belmont, Trevor Belmont, Simon Belmont, Alucard, Lucifer, YHVH, Zobek, Homura Akemi, Dante Alighieri, Luka, The Satan known as God's Judge, Spawn, Lady.
  • Complicated Relationships: Melkor
  • He was the one that manipulated Gabriel's Quest through Zobek in order to obtain a powerful artifact known as The God Mask as it is the key to returning to Heaven and defeating God
  • He is not at full strength when in the mortal planes of Earth but he is still a very powerful magic user being able to use the strongest shadow magic and (surprisingly for many) strongest light magic, it allows him to create binding sigils of both dark and light magic, and gives him the power to summon reapers (less powerful aspects of Death in his dimension).
  • He can use them to great advantage often creating powerful barriers of both Light and Shadow Magic, any that try to enter with only one type will get forced back
  • Also know to manipulate the elements of any area he fights in, causing earth to quake, creating walls of flames, summoning fire to fall from the skies and using the wind to elevate him higher.
  • He has gained more power and it has allowed him to possess others and create black slime like constructs to use in battle.
  • Only known to appear with no clothes choosing to wrap himself in dark aura as he does not wish to do anything similar to humanity
  • He also refers to humanity as "monkeys" and refuses to believe that they deserve anything that God or any creator gods have given them
  • He despises gods that switched from evil to good for any reason often stating
    "You monkeys don't deserve redemption"
  • Lucifer, the REAL Lucifer, utterly detests him: he doesn't need some "poser" giving him MORE bad press, and in such a way that is the direct antithesis to his own beliefs. "Humans are mighty in ways Satan couldn't POSSIBLY comprehend. Fully unleashed, their power is beyond god or devil." The Great Will also issued a quick order: vacate the Pantheon and allow for his Satan, God's Judge, to assert his authority, or be sundered as so many pretenders before.
    • Satan gives Lucifer no respect in turn as he feels that any being with such power wasting their time on "those monkeys" are foolishly naive. He believes when he returns to Earth he will show that it is his Divine Right to be their ruler. About the only thing the two can remotely agree on is their shared enemy, YHVH. If they're up against His forces and push comes to shove, (as in REALLY comes to shove) they'll combine their powers for the legendary Armageddon spell.
  • He despises every other creator gods wishing to topple them next after defeating and taking control of Heaven from his father.
    "Oh false creation gods! I come for you... Before the end YOU will all bow down to ME!"
  • Also is know to be manipulating other evil gods through endowing them with a vast amount of knowledge and power, and implanted the idea to use his elaborate plans to obtain his goals as he did with Zobek, who he has chosen is something only he knows as he wants to create a faction that will help his dark plans in The Pantheonic Rebellion and it is known as The Usurper Faction.
  • He also claims that he will take the Great Will's throne when The Pantheonic Rebellion happens.
  • Even though he loathes humanity he has found an interest in Draco Malfoy, for reasons even he cannot explain
  • Even though Gabriel destroyed it, Satan was able to rebuild his strongest weapon: The Demon Whale "The Leviathan" a beast with enough power to destroy the world in one blast. While The Pantheon is far larger and hardier than the earth, the damage Satan could cause with the Leviathan in the event of losing The Pantheonic Rebellion would be tremendous.
  • Also has shown in interest in Homura Akemi after her actions in "The Great Upheaval" he only claims one thing to her "So...the supposed Gods of Good have abandoned you, too? So be it. Join me. I will love you more than them." He received a round of buckshot to the face in response. Homura has no interest in joining Satan and harming the humans Madoka so loves.
    • He then merely swiped away the smoke from his face, spat out a pellet and walked away disappointed. "The other Gods do not love you, they will let your beloved die!" he snarled over his shoulder.
  • He often appears to Madoka, trying to persuade her to reclaim her power through her newly found Hatred.
    "Hate can bring you back, give you strength. Embrace it!"
  • Is starting to slowly regain his angelic power on The Pantheon to battle Gabriel, changing his physical appearance to one larger and more muscular. He has regained his wings, and wears a thick armored exoskeleton.
  • He cannot currently enter earth ever again after the final battle against Gabriel as it resulted in the destruction of his greatest weapon and his defeat even with him taking control of the body of Alucard (Trevor). He has since vowed to strengthen himself like never before so that even the most powerful of gods become insignificant to him.
  • Has a rather shaky alliance with Grima as of late, can't help feeling that Grima plans something for his Dragonkin alone.
    • However, they are willing to put it aside in the upcoming Pantheonic Rebellion, as Satan seeks the The Great Will's throne and Grima seeks the destruction of his two greatest rivals: Bahamut and Alexstrasza. What happens afterwards is anyone's guess.
  • He also has a rather complicated relationship with Melkor as well. As Melkor is the originator of evil, and thus technically a creator god, Satan desires his position as leader of the Grand United Alliance of Evil as his next throne to topple. On the other hand, Melkor's desire to see the pantheon burn and destroy things for evil and power are precisely in line with Satan's methods. Melkor in turn likes Satan's style of evil, but is uneasy about his ambition, particularly since he has personal quarrels with the new alliances. Furthermore, his Badass Boast easily makes him realize that Satan will never fully cooperate in the war even after they win it.
  • Was confronted by the poet Alighieri and to the surprise of a few he immediately recognized him and already vowed vengeance and a battle almost commenced until it was interrupted by Fortinbras and The Beast forcing Dante to let him escape. What connection they have is unknown. Though Satan only had one thing to say.
    "Dante is the best. Many have tried and many have failed. Brave Ulysses, the great Alexander, Attila, Lancelot... Only he possessed a soul black enough to free me, how do you think I entered The Pantheon?."
  • Has made Mard Geer Tartaros one of his lieutenants and Lords of Hell, impressed as he was by the demon's utter disregard for humanity. He's also impressed by Mard Geer's loyalty to his yet-unascended master, E.N.D., and has offered, if the demon proves himself, to aid Mard Geer in ascending him to a throne.
  • Despises and is despised by Luka in turn, due to the fact that Luka is the son of Lucifer's equivalent in his world. Satan thinks Luka is the lowest of fools and scum for this, and Luka in turn claims that Satan deserved every bit of punishment he got and then some after learning about his list of transgressions.
  • One of the few deities he's allied with for non-professional purposes are his grandsons, George and Bob. Much to his annoyance, though, is people mistaking him as their father.
  • Absolutely despises the Satan that serves YHVH. Not only does he serve YHVH willingly, but he would have Fallen Angels submit and die for YHVH. He is also disgusted by the fact that Satan was once in a human form called Zayin, and sees the humanity that occasionally emerges from that experience as a weakness to be exploited.
  • He insists that when he fell from Heaven (like lightning), a certain M. Bison did not behold him.

Intermediate Gods

Tyrael, God of Broken Angels (Archangel of Justice (formerly), Aspect of Justice/Wisdom)
  • Formerly Greater God, currently Intermediate
  • Symbol: El'druin, his sword.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Gave up angelhood for the sake of humanity, Big Good, Black, bald, and the leader, the righteous one in the dark world and the reasonable man
  • Domains: Light, Former Angels
  • Allies: The Nephalems, Thrall, Jaina, Madoka Kaname, Artix Von Krieger, Tassadar, Cosmos, Sora, Lamington, Flonne, Artina, Sicily, Alexstraza, Sanguinus, Pit, Colette Brunel, Tyr, Nova Terra, Emilia Justina, Jim Raynor
  • Enemies: Diablo, Azmodan, Adria, The Butcher, Satan, Chernabog, The Beast, YHVH, Lucifer, Homura Akemi, Arcturus Mengsk
  • Opposes: Yunael and Minael
  • Tyrael saw humanity with high opportunity, especially against the demons of the Burning Hell. However, when he found that the law made by the Angels prevented him from interfering in the affairs of man, he chose to give up his angelhood to lead them against evil.
  • As the Aspect of Justice and member of the Angiris Court, he occasionally appears in the Court of the Gods.
  • YHVH despises him for not following his Light of Order despite being an Angel. Tyrael thinks he's nothing but a tyrant sitting on Heaven's throne.
  • He fought in the battlefield along with Blizzard heroes like Thrall and Jaina. Although he appears as his angelic form, though this is more to suit him in battle.
  • As he was formerly an angel that fought demons from the Burning Hell for a millennium, he is unforgiving to any demons in the Pantheon, though he shows some graces to demons like Morrigan Aensland.
    • This is why he typically avoid anyone from the Nipponverse because he will get a headache with its demons, who are typically good, has good intentions, or at best Chaotic Neutral.
  • He opposes Satan, a God representing fallen angels. Despite the two having fallen from grace, he still fights to protect the innocent, and aided the Nephalem in stopping Diablo from destroying the High Heavens, while he wants to conquer it.
  • He trusts Madoka Kaname as though she was the God that Sanctuary never had (the God of Sanctuary, Anu, is dead and made into the High Heavens) however, he is currently conflicted with Homura Akemi, whether she would be an equivalent of a Prime Evil.
  • Often smiles in spite of himself at the actions of Pit, who he sees, despite his occasional screw-ups and quirks, as an example of what angels should try to be towards humans.
  • He still prays that the Nephalems that fought with him in both Sanctuary and Nexus would not get tempted into evil. Thankfully a lot of good Gods here have assured him that even if they could surpass the Sanctuary's greatest champions of Heaven and Hell, the whole Pantheon is a different story. Eventually, the Nephalems truly made their way to the Pantheon, and so far Tyrael was glad that they are still staunch protectors of humanity.
  • He has become a mentor to half-angel Emilia Justina after he became aware of her heroic deeds and her mission to keep an eye on Satan Jacob. Since Emilia can regain her holy power within the House of Angels, Tyrael always takes the opportunity to spar with her.


Lesser Gods

    Aru Akise 
Aru Akise, Divine Messenger
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His notebook and his "Detective Diary".
  • Theme Music: "The Search For A Certain Truth"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good with shades of Chaotic Good (True Neutral in Yandere Mode)
  • Portfolio: Smart Heroic Antagonists, Nice Guy You Shouldn't Mess With Or Steal His Love Interest Or Else!, Amateur Sleuth, Homosexual Badass Normal, Thou Shall Not Kill, Dissonant Serenity, Hopeless Suitor, Mystical White Hair, Angel Unaware, Artificial Human of the Akashic Records, Off with His Head! (But Not For Long)
  • Domains: Heroes, Love, Jealousy, Hair, Ambiguity (At times), Protection, Freedom, Death
  • Herald: Gremory
  • Mentor: Shinnosuke Tomari/Kamen Rider Drive
  • Allies: Yukiteru Amano, Reisuke Houjou, Minene Uryuu, Kaworu Nagisa, Rei Ayanami, Oren Pierre Alfonzo/Kamen Rider Bravo, Johan Anderson, Makoto Itou, Kamen Rider Double (Shotaro Hidari and Philip), Rias Gremory, Byakuya Togami, Nana
  • Conflicting Opinions: Jin Kisaragi, Judai Yuki, Yubel
  • Conflicting Relationships: Ooi, Yuno Gasai
  • Enemies: Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa, Embryo, Judge Claude Frollo, Gaston, Hera, YHVH and the GUAL
  • Opposed by: Momo Karuizawa (More like Sitcom Archnemesis)
  • Ascended after he decided that it was enough of Yuno Gasai's hunt down of everyone voiced by Akira Ishida and Todd Haberkorn, before it degenerated into more chaos and insanity and to see if she would stop with him being there. Surprisingly enough, she did.
    • It should be noted that it really took a while for him to find a good position but he has decided to take his role as the Observer of God once again. He had a hard time finding a House to place his temple in but eventually settled on the House of Angels since he is technically one, if not a conventional one.
  • His relationship with Yuno Gasai is... Interesting. All of those deities were chased down in the first place because of him but Akise did give her reasons to hate him due to his determination to have Yukiteru and this made her want to kill him on sight. In the end, Akise and Yuno have started to be able to tolerate each other's presence, but they still can be seen fighting sometimes.
    • Ultimately though, Yuno somehow managed to recover his memories of her 3rd world self what became the dominant personality of her, thus making her turn good. Her relation with Akise is a bit iffy, though, as she still remembers how he tried to stop her from recovering her memories.
  • Has become very good friends with Kaworu Nagisa, who have recognized the similarities they both share. He wishes him to have better luck with Shinji than the one he had.
    • However, he has realized that he is more similar to Alcor and is looking forward to his ascension (though that may bring individuals he won't particularly like...)
  • Has decided to still try to be a Great Detective in the Pantheon and picked up Reisuke Houjou as his sidekick again. He really admires Shotaro Hidari for being a detective and Philip is kind of similar to him too so he hopes that they are often together.
  • Despite being a "Male Yandere", he has nothing but utter contempt for the likes of Frollo, Gaston, Embryo and Kusaka for being worse than he is. In the other hand, his opinion of Jin Kisaragi usually fluctuates depending on his attitude.
    • Of course, as Ooi once pointed out, he is no better than them or Yuno. Akise is under probation before he ever wishes to join the Special Lovers Squad, if at all since him leaving his friends to their deaths for the sake of Yukiteru didn't sit well with them.
  • Pities Makoto Itou for being struck between two yanderes and having been decapitated once, the latter being something he can relate. He would prefer for him to be with Yuki Ashikaga instead of Kotonoha and Sekai.
  • Is often teased and annoyed by Momo Karuizawa. He believes that she is doing it on behalf of her high priestess Mur Mur, who dislikes him.
  • Has befriended Johan Anderson due to being a fellow Kaworu Nagisa Expy. He actually found it depressing when he heard that the duelist lost Judai's love to a yandere out to get him as he did with Yukiteru. But at least he should feel lucky that Yukiteru isn't married and fused to Yuno like Judai and Yubel are.
  • Absolutely hates gods that abuse their power, especially Hera because she reminds him of Yuno (one would think this comparison should probably be flipped around) and YHVH because of his abusive treatment of his creations which is similar to how the Second World Deus Ex Machina treated him.
  • He was eventually given a demon named Gremory by the Third World Deus Ex Machina. It's unknown whether this means he could also summon Rias Gremory but some gods have seen her being with him, Reisuke, Shotaro and Philip in their Great Detective adventures whenever she has spare time.

Archangel Gabriel, Holy Representative of Her Namesake and Female Angels (Gabby, Seraph of Water, Declarer of Anguish)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her breastplate
  • Alignment: Lawful Good to her allies, Lawful Evil with lapses of neutrality to everyone else
  • Portfolio: Feminine Angels, Adapted from Masculine Angels, Rough Justice, With Good Intentions, YHVH's Only Sane Angel, Less Extreme Law, Control of Ice and Water, Lilies (and Purity by extension), Healing Magic
  • Allies: YHVH (her superior), Metatron and the rest of the GUAL. Secretly, she has cultivated a friendship with Satan.
  • Conflicting Opinion on: Eliphas, Cosmos and the GUAG
  • Opposed by: Tyrael
  • Enemies: Lucifer and the GUAC, the other Gabriel, Supernatural Gabriel, Fiamma, Sebastian Michaelis, Derriere.
  • Gabriel's ascension was mainly a PR campaign for the GUAL. YHVH grew frustrated at His men's lowering morale and disloyalty, with most of the Pantheon seeing Him as evil (not that he'd admit that they're right). Realizing He needed help with this, He summoned Gabriel for help.
  • Of YHVH's angels, Gabriel is one of the few not mindlessly obedient. While many wish she could leave Him, Gabriel still refuses to see YHVH as evil: to her, YHVH is still good, with the main difference between her and Metatron is that not everyone unaligned with him is evil in her opinion. Though sometimes her faith in His goodness can be stretched.
    • Because of this, many good-aligned law deities are trying to convince her to leave YHVH. It hasn't had as much success as they thought.
  • Gabriel's feelings for Eliphas and Cosmos are...complicated. As enemies of her master, she's antagonistic to them. But she admires their fight for justice and good respectively. Whenever the GUAL is about to attack them, she usually comes to warn them to repent. She knows full well they mostly take advantage of her warnings to prepare but hopes one day they will be able to stop the fighting entirely.
  • Gabriel has a somewhat friction-filled relationship with YHVH's other angels, who consider her soft for wanting to save most beings (instead of a few). Satan, however, sees this as an example the other angels should follow. YHVH is somewhat annoyed Gabriel has this kind of free will, but tolerates it anyway. Sadly, she herself is not immune to Jumping Off the Slippery Slope, as Flynn can attest - she's at her personal worst when the salvation of large groups of Chosen is imperiled by demons of any kind. Personally, she submitted a suggestion to leave the PR campaign to an angel she believes can do a better job - Remiel, Angel of Hope and Compassion, who is likewise fully committed to the ideals of Justice and Salvation and does not allow his faith to drag him down to Well-Intentioned Extremist depths.
  • Is somewhat proud of Tyrael for showing initiative. Tyrael, though, wants none of it from one of YHVH's lapdogs. As far as he sees it, angels like Gabriel are even worse than her fellow council due to aiding and abetting the Mad God's schemes under true benevolence.
  • Gabriel has nothing but utter contempt for her name-share, Gabriel Belmont. To her, YHVH is love itself, and by turning against God because of love is the ultimate blasphemy.
  • She and the Archangel Satan are privately very worried about the path their Lord has taken but are at a loss as to how best respond to his growing Black and White Insanity. With very little options left, they have resorted to following His will by interpreting His orders as creatively as they can with the goal of increasing the numbers of the Chosen rather than merely focusing on preserving the ones they already have. Metatron became livid at this, seeing it as the first steps towards a schism within the GUAL. Gabriel promptly slapped him; her faith in the Lord is absolute and unwavering, as is Satan's - if Metatron willingly chooses to sink to the darker depths of Law, he's no better than an abominable fanatic. If they want to show everyone that their banner is more than submission and obedience, they must show Law's full virtues. She specifically named Charity, Understanding and Justice as a few the entire Alliance needs to remember.
    • Lucifer once noted Law and Chaos are Not So Different in that regard - neither Alliance is particularly good at avoiding their darker sides. He and Gabriel shared a bitter laugh over this.
