  • Conflicting Opinion On: Lucifer
  • Odd Relationship With: Chuck Shurley
  • Before he fell, he was the most beautiful angel in Heaven, and God's most trusted lieutenant, as well as his favorite child. He was trusted so much by God that the latter bestowed upon Lucifer the Mark of Cain. That decision, however, had terrible repercussions, as when God created humanity and started paying more attention to them, Lucifer became jealous and bitter, and rebelled against God, with God eventually locking him in a Cage located in the darkest pits of Hell.
  • He was eventually freed from his Cage, and tried to bring on the Apocalypse, only to be imprisoned back in Cage again. However, he was soon able to escape from his Cage again, by possessing Castiel's vessel, after Castiel gave him permission to possess him in order to stop the Darkness. He has since been thrown out of Castiel's vessel, and was placed back in his "Nick" vessel, which had been reconstructed.
  • Upon his ascension, Death the Horseman came to him and told him exactly what would happen if Lucifer tried to bound Death to him again. Lucifer reluctantly agreed, although how much of his agreement he actually meant is up for debate.
  • Sam and Dean constantly try to avoid him, due to Sam being Lucifer’s one true vessel. Lucifer, for his part, is banned from the House of Emotion as a result of this, though he is trying his best to convince the Maintainers of Emotion that he isn't as bad as Sam and Dean say he is, and that he's not that bad of a guy. The Maintainers of Emotion luckily aren't buying it.
  • Castiel holds a major grudge against Lucifer, due to Lucifer killing him twice, as well Lucifer using Cas' vessel for causing chaos after Cas gave him permission to use it in fighting against the Darkness.
  • While Azazel, Ramiel, and Dagon all welcomed him with open arms, Asmodeus avoids him since he captured Lucifer in their universe, when the latter was lacking some of his grace. Lucifer promises to return the favor to Asmodeus when he gets the chance. Conversely, Crowley does his best to spite Lucifer whenever he gets the chance, with Lucifer making a point to cause trouble for Crowley too.
  • Despite his hatred for humans and demons alike, he ultimately despises Pagan Gods the most out of all of the residents in the Pantheon.
    "You know, I never understood you pagans. You're such...petty little things! Always fighting...always happy to sell out your own kind. No wonder you forfeited this planet to us! You are worse than humans. You're worse than demons. And yet you claim to be gods? And they call me prideful..."
  • His hatred of humans isn't just limited to heroes. He despises evildoers like Tarkin and Umbridge, due to their sadism and how sociopathic they are. At least he has some love for his siblings and father (though not as much as he has for himself); Umbridge and Tarkin represent what he sees in humanity; "broken, flawed abortions".
  • He also despises Voldemort, mostly due to Voldemort seeing himself as someone of Lucifer's caliber. But even he thinks that what Voldemort did to his own soul was nasty.
  • That being said, he gets along well with Teridax for a variety of reasons, such as sharing similar histories, and that Lucifer admires how Teridax was able to succeed in his plans, as well as how much of a Magnificent Bastard Teridax is. However, Lucifer may or may not realize that Teridax doesn't plan on making him an equal partner in his endeavors...
  • His views on humanity puts him directly at odds with the Doctor, due to their views on humanity being on completely opposite ends of the spectrum. Lucifer cannot just understand why someone like the Doctor would tolerate, let alone protect, humanity, while the Doctor swore to defend humanity from threats like Lucifer long ago. Though Lucifer doesn't know what the Doctor means by "an encounter near a Black Hole". On the other hand, his quarrel with the Doctor has brought him a new ally in the Master, who enjoys causing trouble for humanity, and similarly holds humans in low regard.
  • His opinion of the other Lucifer in the Pantheon is a conflicted one, as while they're both, well, Lucifer, he doesn't understand why the other one has such a fondness for humans, since this Lucifer's hatred of humans is well-known. However, both of them are opposed to YHVH, although for different reasons.
  • Quickly became allies with SCP-682 and Zamasu, due to the all of them sharing a "Humans Are Bastards" mentality. Lucifer also implies that he may have had a hand in SCP-682's creation.
  • Ever since he has found out that his father, Chuck Shurley, had managed to simultaneously ascend with him, the two of them have had an awkward reunion, given that the last time Chuck saw Lucifer, the latter has his ass handed to him by Amara. Not to mention that they also had an equally awkward heart-to-heart shortly before.

  • 20 Minutes into the Future, a psychic power known as Septima began to develop in certain humans, known as Adepts. What followed was chaos, as society began to collapse, and as a result, these beings called Adepts became feared and hated by the regular human populace. An attempted remedy of the Adept problem was brought about by the Sumeragi Group, who behind closed doors, partook in cruel experiments with the Adepts as their subjects. Led by Asimov, the resistance group known as QUILL works to take down Sumeragi by any means necessary.
  • Of course, this was a front for Asimov's true goals. He sought not equality for Adepts, but supremacy, and the eradication of humans. To this end, he had Gunvolt do the heavy lifting for him, only to reveal his plans after Nova had been taken down. Wishing for his former ally to help him spearhead the Adept uprising, he kills him when the latter refuses, only for Gunvolt to be revived by the power of the Anthem and face him again, this time emerging victorious.
  • His ascension happened after his demise at the end of the first Azure Striker Gunvolt. Being unambiguously dead, he found himself confused when he suddenly found himself in the House of Life and Vitality. It was explained to him that he had ascended as the God of Super Supremacy, something that he felt happy about, feeling it gave him precedent to continue his oppression of Muggles.
  • As a result of the above, he and Gunvolt are currently not on very good terms. While Asimov does not hate Gunvolt outright, he has proven willing to throw away whatever bond they had before the ending of the first game and kill Gunvolt. On Gunvolt's part, he was horrified to hear that Asimov had ascended, and is keeping tabs on him in case he attempts to restart a variant of his Adept uprising in the pantheon. He was not very pleased to learn of the events of Luminous Avenger iX, and is doing all in his power to prevent such a thing from happening here.
  • It is worth noting that he and Gunvolt have something of a shared history, both being the sole successful products of the inhumane Project Gunvolt, where they were given their ultra-powerful Azure Striker Septima. Asimov is actually responsible for rescuing Gunvolt from Sumeragi, as well as teaching him to harness his Septima, causing the latter to see him as something of a father-figure. Gunvolt actually seems to have forgotten about the teaching part, much to Asimov's disappointment.
    Gunvolt: Hey, I got it. Who are you lecturing? It's my Septima.
  • His relationship with Gunvolt's rival, Copen, is much more reciprocally negative, due to Copen being a human and Asimov having defeated him and stolen his gun. This animosity is escalated tenfold whenever Copen is in 'Luminous Avenger iX' mode, where he took on Sumeragi, now led by Asimov, and became the latter's nemesis in Gunvolt's stead.
  • As a fellow villainous father-figure, it didn't take long for him to find a kindred spirit in Ghetsis Harmonia Gropius, though their contrasting goals for humanity do sometimes lead to disagreements. That is, Ghetsis wishes to conquer it, while Asimov would rather destroy it. Nevertheless, they aren't on terms that can be described as completely friendly or unfriendly, which naturally worries both Gunvolt and N. The two of them have agreed to help take care of each other's father figures should they go out of line in the Pantheon.
  • On that note, he also admires Sun Li, who doesn't qualify as a muggle due to being one of the greater players in the game he is from. The two get along, being father-like Evil Mentors, and he seeks to become a Magnificent Bastard on his level, feeling it would help his plans go off much more hitchlessly. He intends to give Sun Li a place in his Adept empire, something the Glorious Strategist is strongly considering.
  • His actions have earned the scorn of much of the House of Family and Relatives, most notably Toriel, who despises him for his willingness to harm his own 'child'. They mostly avoid each other, Asimov out of apathy, and Toriel because she recognises putting herself on his radar to be an ill-advised move. Asgore also shares this sentiment, but is willing to stay out of his way as long as none of the Undertale deities are hurt by him.
    • Despite this, he does not necessarily support the Child Abuse Supporters, and for good reason. He actually treated Gunvolt quite well, and is rather fond of him, viewing killing him as a Necessary Evil required to carry out his goal. He stays out of their way, while disapproving of their abuse of their children for what he sees as no good reason.
  • He and Eneru get along quite well, the two of them frequently comparing their capacity for the lightning element, all in good fun. His Luminous Avenger iX incarnation goes toe-to-toe with the 200-Million Volt Eneru, with the two being said to be rather evenly matched. That they both view themselves as good guys for all the things they've done helps, albeit for different reasons - especially considering Asimov only shares his god complex as Demerzel.
  • As Demerzel, Asimov undergoes a serious personality change. He becomes much more insane and sociopathic, and considers himself to be a God of Thunder, which puts him at blows with Thor, the actual bearer of this title. Demerzel has yet to prove himself superior to Thor, something that greatly frustrates him, but he is trying nonetheless.
  • Being an icon of Muggle Power, in what seems to be a similar vein to Copen, Asimov is strongly opposed to Amon, seeing him as one of the greatest obstacles to his muggle-free world. The feeling is mutual, but became greater on Asimov's end once he learned that Amon wasn't even a non-bender in the first place. He now sees him as little more than a confused hypocrite.
  • He has something of an interest in Izuku Midoriya, seeing as like him, the youth was a former Muggle who was granted superpowers. As such, he has attempted to recruit the boy to his cause on more than one occasion. Midoriya is staunchly against this, taking the stance that while he is aware Asimov has suffered, it doesn't justify his attempts to eradicate humanity, and cannot forgive his attempts on Gunvolt's life once he learned of them.
  • As the Adept leader of a Kill All Humans scheme and an Un-Sorcerer with Anti-Magic capabilities, who was oppressed for her lack of capacity for magic, it didn't take long for Asimov and Ange to become enemies. She is one of the few muggles he views as an actual threat, as he does not know if her Anti-Magic touch works on his Septima, and he really isn't interested in finding out anytime soon.
  • Disapproves of the school of Anti-Magic, mostly because he finds the idea of it being used on him to be utterly repulsive. He cannot stand the idea of being unable to use his Septima, and he believes he speaks for all superhumans when he says that being rendered in a state that makes him no better than a mere human is the worst thing that can happen to someone like him.
  • Due to misunderstandings, the House of Machinery and Technology once awaited his arrival, only to soon discover that he was nothing like the Father of Robotics, and was in fact a very evil man who was completely apathetic to his cause. At the very least, this earned him the support of most of the evil deities in the House, particularly Metallix, if only for the 'Kill All Humans' aspect of his plan.
  • A fellow Super Supremacist himself, Asimov sympathises quite sincerely with Magneto, though this definitely doesn't quite apply to Demerzel, who Magneto has quite the dislike for, viewing even him to be monstrous. Both have been victims and perpetrators of Fantastic Racism, and thus see a little of themselves in one another. Asimov has also developed something of a respect for Magneto's Friendly Enemy, Professor X, and is curious as to why he sympathises with humans so much despite being a mutant himself. He aims to change his mind on this aspect and recruit him into his Adept empire, though with little success so far.
  • Another Super Supremacist he gets along with is General Zod, whom he knelt before upon learning about him, asking for his assistance in his mission. Zod, for his part, is still strongly considering accepting.
  • When he learned of another human-hater in the Hall of Weapon Placement, he immediately made a beeline for said Hall and discovered Adam Taurus. The two...got off on the wrong foot. Adam refuses to work with someone who is technically a human, even if he is an Adept, and Asimov wound up disappointed that for all his strength, he turned out to be little more than an overly-obsessed ex.
  • Strangely enough, he has a fascination for Ninjas, and their culture, finding them to be intriguing. Most of the ninjas in the pantheon are no exception, though Bang Shishigami is a bit of a disappointment to him. The ninjas, on their part, usually want nothing to do with him, since they tend to be good or neutral-aligned.

"I took a wrong turn with you somewhere... I'm sorry for that. But you've made your position clear. I'm on one side of this line... and you're on the other! You see, you're not the only Azure Striker. You were just the strongest... until now."

  • Here is a little story from the past: A scientist by the name of Dr. Kamizono was a researcher at the Sumeragi Futures Institute of Technology’s S-FIT. Though their mission is to revolutionize energy, the sinister practice of live experimentation on Adepts thrived beneath the surface. Kamizono disapproved of such practices, but that ultimately came down to Sumeragi helping create more and more of these “monsters”. Soon one fateful day he along with many other researchers are all killed by one of their experimentees, a young boy that commanded electricity, who disappeared into the unknown while Sumeragi wasted no time in burying the incident and taking his research to further their goals. Dr. Kamizono has two children, an older boy and a younger girl, and the former would go on to pick up the pieces left behind his late father. Believing Sumeragi actually silenced his father to take the research the kid came to the conclusion he would have to take matters into his own hands. This boy’s name is Copen Kamizono and he fights to rid the world of every last Adept.
  • The removal of one of Amon’s titles was swift and efficient. Onlookers around the House of Philosophy could only toward a 14 year old kid clad in white and red dashing from building to building before disappearing without a trace. Later that evening reports popped across the different Houses of both Sumeragi and Eden’s hits. All shared the distinction of a white and crimson blur blasting through the air and eliminating their personnel and driving away their bosses through laser weaponry and abilities replicated from the higher ups. There was no mistaking it, Copen has ascended to the Pantheon.
    Copen: "Sumeragi and Eden. The fact that both of you walk in the land of the living once more is another crime in of itself. But you won't evade me, or your coming judgement."
  • Though only a normal boy his genius in technology and engineering allows to keep up and even surpass the strengths of the mystical Adepts. Preferring unrelenting attacks and quick speed he arms himself with Border Mk II, a gun from his late father that once shot anti-Septima bullets but has since switched to lasers. Copen doesn’t slack on defense, however. In addition to the many subroutines he installs on White Tiger armor Copen can quickly Bullit Dash into things to tag them for his lasers and can even take to the skies with his Rocket Boots. Plus, through analyzing an Adept’s Septisome Copen can replicate their former owner’s powers. This was how he was able to copy the Azure Striker’s mainstay of defense: Prevasion, and this would only be the tip of the iceberg to his arsenal.
    • Abilities copied from Adepts’ Septimas take the form of EX Weapons and are manned by many different drones that surround Copen called Bits, all of them managed by a spunky Robot Buddy named Lola. From Power Grab and Gorgon Gaze to Hailstorm Blade and Hydro Zapper. While EX Weapons are inactive the Bits also function as a shield known as Flashfield, another barrier against attacks coming his way. With this in mind Copen is able to juggle both offense and defense and is a force to be reckoned with though he does hold back on using EX Weapons so as to not overly reliant on them and be defeated. Really piss him off and you'll get another story, as GV can attest to. Guilt Sequence and Doppler Destroyer are good enough proof of that.
  • Speaking of, Copen can be looked at as Gunvolt’s opposite in almost every way. Copen is a Muggle who fights with technological genius clad in white and red, while GV is an Adept who fights with his granted powers and is instead dominantly clad in blue and black. Further highlighting this is the respective Tiger Versus Dragon and demon and angel symbolism between the two and with Copen originally hauling heavier armor, complete with a shield doubling as a ballista. In short, Copen was durable while GV was more nimble.
  • Being a young scientist he frequents the House of Machinery and Technology to further hone his craft, though he's very careful not to diverge any of his technology publicly so as they don't get misused much like with his late father's research. It is disappointing enough that there are all too many in the field of science who like to abuse it for personal gain such as Professor Hojo, Bonedrewd, and Ryoma Sengoku. Its for that reason he agrees with Arthur Maxson and the Brotherhood of Steel's overall doctrine, though he does balk at the Brotherhood's use of a Humongous Mecha and its ability to throw nuke-like ordinances. In a post-apocalyptic world. Where everthing was bombed to hell.
    Lola: "Geez, boss. Don't sugarcoat it or anything."
    • Roboticists on the side of evil also gets on his nerves, considering who his partner is and everything and having fought an Adept with "the self-absorbed delusions of an infant" that brought an entire factory's worth of machines to life. Eggman and Wily in particular are the kind of people who fit that description like the glove. Copen and Lola hates the latter's guts more mainly for being behind the Roboenza Virus. Even if he left behind enough cures for a whole population, that hasn't excused... practically everything else he has done. If he's conducting his business but is not hunting down Adepts and other superhumans then it is likely he's trying to thwart their plots.
  • When working on research late in the Pantheon's nights he takes trips down to the House of Food. Specifically, he goes down to get some coffee and prefers it black. It's practically a favorite of his, and pretty indicative of his personality despite being so young he's wise beyond his years, even if he's quite stubborn. Here, he prefers to keep a low profile in this downtime and doesn't usually try to stick around longer than he needs to. Though he does consistently talk to Godot due to a shared love for coffee, anyways. Sure, the coffee-themed koans are quite odd and overall illogical, but the prosecutor makes for a good conversationalist anyways.
  • As the Pantheon is a much more forgiving place Copen has been put under a lot of scrutiny for his goals when it comes to pulling a Final Solution on Adepts. While there is never any doubt it is an extreme solution the state of his world and actions of organizations like Eden is glaring, so it is not like he has no ground to stand on. One of the things that stopped people from being seeing him as bad as both Sumeragi and Eden is the fact he mainly reserves his wrath towards villains and other vagabonds, though make no mistake he won’t hesitate on attacking people like GV if they get in his way. The other reason is that with the revelation that his sister, Mytyl, is an Adept herself Copen’s resolve in his cause is noticeably shaken even as he left her and the Kamizono family to continue on fighting. Then again, staying around after decapitating Eden's leadership would have dire consequences anyways. He's way too deep into his crusade for there not to have any collateral damage.
    • In any case, Charles Xavier along with the X-Men and other mutants have collectively deemed Copen their enemy for his stance against superhuman beings as a whole, not all too different from the regular humans who have their prejudices against them. Many are also weary of his ability to copy Septimas and it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume Copen would be able to do the same to their mutations if given time and the chance.
    • And speaking of mutant-hating humans, Copen and William Stryker have an interesting relationship. Though the two of them share many simalirites ranging from beliefs (in more ways than one to an extent) Copen is disturbed that he was willing to both kill his own son for being a mutant and his wife for given birth to said mutant... in some instances at least. Regardless, family is something that means a lot to Copen. It's the reason he took up fighting Adepts in the first place and the reason why he had a crisis of faith as stated earlier. One severe enough to fake his death, discard the Kamizono name, and leave his sister to live a life without him in the picture when earlier she was just in the dark of it all. William, meanwhile, most of the time finds his lack of ability to steel his convictions disgraceful.
    • Being a well known team of Cape Busters, Copen has worked with the Boys here and there. Although we would be lying if there wasn't any vitriol tossed back and forth given Copen's extreme ideals when it comes to superhumans as a whole considering his claims of wanting to rid the world of superhumans period. It's quite in line with Billy Butcher tried to do, even extending it to his teammates in the mortal world. Though even with that similarity he and Copen can hardly be called likeminded. Copen doesn't take any pleasure in what he does unlike Butcher and the revelation regarding his sister had him cast genuine doubts on what he preaches.
    • Being nearly undaunted in the idea that regular and Differently Powered Individuals are unable to coexist he is then unable to comprehend the state of the society deities from My Hero Academia are from. And thinking about it more ultimately leads him to be frustrated in the end, especially when it is about the disparity between there and Copen's world. On the other side of the coin many are wary of Copen as his use of Depleted Phlebotinum Shells and Power Grab are all too reminiscent of not only All for One but also bullets that are able to de-Quirk people. But as it is with Copen his beef is mainly with its villains, though he's a dangerous person to come across all the same.
  • At some point different people have made comparisons between him and Masato Kusaka, mainly for the fact that both are not only rivals to the heroes of their respective but also carrying that drive to wipe out anyone they don't deem human. Copen and Lola consider the comparisons offensive. While the former won't necessarily deny them (Copen himself internally admitted he is a demon bent on revenge), he would like to make the distinction that he is definitely not a Yandere who is perfectly willing to manipulate the targeted interest's friends into infighting so he could have them all for himself. On Masato's end he finds the way Copen goes about his business with Adepts intriguing and is starting to have some similar thoughts when it comes to the Pantheon's population of kaijin. As if his existing Fantastic Racism for them wasn't enough.
    Lola: "A jerk and a creep. Ugh!"
    Copen: "What a winning combination."
  • If you're still wondering: He and Amon, the former holder of Muggle Power, don't like each other by the way. Though the both have a shared hatred against their respective universe's powers, citing them as the cause of everything wrong and awful, came to that conclusion thanks to their fathers, and are both hypocritical in some way or another they are still very different. How they came to hate powers is as different as night and day with Copen doing so out of a love for his father and desire to avenge him while Amon was abused by his instead. The same can be said with how they deal with the problem with Copen wanting to kill anyone with a Septima and does the dirty business on his own while Amon took to debending people and building an following after it. In addition, both don't shy away at calling each other's hypocrisy whether its with Copen using the Adepts powers against them and ditching his sister as opposed to killing her like he always said or Amon being a Bender himself (and an incredibly capable one at that).
  • Don't let that cold demeanor fool you. Even in his line of work he's quite the Deadpan Snarker himself, one that matches Gunvolt. And when the situation calls he can also be The Comically Serious. For example, he was quite through with Ghauri's atrocious rhymes, enough so that he was actually losing focus during their rematch. And he didn't even hesitate on pressing Gibril's Berserk Button repeatedly after finding what it was. In addition, his indistinct religiousness leads to Copen also being a bit of a prude if you can believe it. He was pretty stingy on what his sister is consuming in terms of reading material, and wasn't on board with the idea of her using perfume as that's more for older girls.
  • There are times, however, in which Copen is a lot more mellow in his actions and attitude. He’s less of a Deadpan Snarker, preferring a more quiet and even respectful outlook towards his enemies and all the talk about God along with his Fantastic Racism for the Adepts and those empowered like them is oddly absent. This can be attributed to the journey where he took on the now Adept-backed Sumeragi Institute of Human Evolution where he went by the moniker of "iX". In other words, the journey involving the timeline in which Gunvolt and Joule were both killed by Asimov who then went on to usurp Sumeragi in the power vacuum from Nova’s demise and Take Over the World as Demerzel. His reign of terror would last for a century, and Copen was forced to become a cyborg to continue fighting. His new temperament here makes it all the more ironic, especially so since he now genuinely mourns Gunvolt and Joule’s death since practically every encounter with the former ended with Copen trying to murder him. Instead, he reserved every ounce of his Tranquil Fury towards Asimov. For Gunvolt and Joule's deaths at his hands, for Mytyl’s suffering as the Butterfly Effect, and for this living nightmare of a world where Adepts are heavily surveyed and forced to join in on killing the rest of humanity.
    • As a result many gods and goddesses note Copen is much easier to work with in this state of mind whereas he usually would of attacked someone with powers whether they were good or evil and would only relent if the situation proved really dire such as when an airship nearly crashed into a skyscraper. It is a bit hard to believe, and may give people some whiplash comparing the normal Copen to iX but few are willing to object having someone like that on their side for a change. Various heroic deities from My Hero Academia have come across iX by chance who was more than willing to help them out and even get along with them, though Copen perhaps gets along with Izuku Midoriya the best possibly because he used to be a Quirkless person himself. To Copen, he's reminded of an Adept who was not born with a Septima named "Blade", though the circumstances are much more tragic in their case, even if they were freed and even inspired to keep going by Copen in the end. Izuku and his allies silently hope this change of heart can be brought out more often.
  • "I'll keep fighting until the day the last Adept falls."

  • Portfolio: controls geological activity and can freeze the environment around her as Required Secondary Powers, goes through a lot of horrible things in her life, outlived two of her children (one of which she killed herself to save from a Fate Worse than Death), multiple identities that are revealed to be the same character, slowly turning to stone from use of the Obelisk Gate, Walking the Earth in order to find her daughter but had treater her abusively herself to hide her powers, cynical about the world and the ability of people like her to coexist with those without powers, due to her own past, sought out by all sides for the ability to use the Obelisk Gate, destroyed her own hometown, named after a gem like all the other Imperial orogenes when she was in the Fulcrum.
  • Domains: Discrimination, Earth, motherhood, natural disasters
  • Herald: Hoa

  • Enemies: Moon Man, Ozai, William Stryker, Fenrir Grayback, Copen Kamizono,

  • Essun was surprised to find herself in the pantheon after her final confrontation with her daughter Nassun. It turns out that Hoa had figured out a way to bring her back to life without turning her fully into a Stone Eater and thus risking her losing her memories and identity - reviving her as a god in the pantheon instead. She is very surprised to be alive and fascinated to hear about all of the other worlds different gods came from, places where apocalyptic natural disasters aren't a constant.
  • Born into a world where the earth itself is angry at its inhabitants and the people living there had to prepare themselves for world-altering disasters called "fifth seasons" where geologic activity caused long-lasting ash clouds in the sky with resulting cold temperatures and starvation every few centuries, Essun had to also deal with being an orogene, a group of people Randomly Gifted with (or sometimes inheriting) powers that allowed them to control geologic activity themselves. Orogenes are seen as agents of the evil Earth itself who are at best to be controlled and treated as less than human and at worst to be killed as soon as one is identified. Initially trained by the Fulcrum of the Sanze empire to user her power for government-sanctioned purposes, her mentor and Super Breeding Program partner Alabaster helped her realize that orogenes were still treated as less than human even there, and the two escaped but were later separated when the Guardians of the fulcrum came to capture them again. She made a new life with a family that did not know of her orogeny, but eventually her past caught up to her when her husband, Jija, killed their son Uche in a rage at discovering his powers and kidnapped their daughter, Nassun. With a season far more powerful and dangerous than normal going on at the same time, she set out to find her daughter, but instead ended up embroiled in a Secret War where she was sought after for having the power to use the Obelisk Gate, with which she could bring the lost moon back to the Earth to placate it and end the seasons forever.
  • She very must distrusts and fears Gaea, knowing how the earth in her world is aggressive and cruel and was responsible for a lot of the suffering in her world. She doubts Gaea's claims to care about protecting the planet from things like pollution - no matter how much life on Gaea gets killed, the planet herself will be fine, so why should she care about something that doesn't affect her?
  • Has a complicated relationship with the house of Family and Relatives. She hates people like Ozai who abuse their children, though he has argued that she is no better with how cruel she was to Nassun in training her to control her orogeny, even breaking her hand like the Fulcrum did to Essun herself. Essun insists that it's different, that she had to do that to protect her when revealing her powers would get her killed, but deep down she isn't so sure of that, and regrets what she's done to her daughter. She relates to Medea with how they both killed their own children to supposedly protect them, though Essun never is fully kind to her because she is always suspicious Medea's motives were really just about spite for her husband. However she did get along very well with Sethe, with them having very similar stories of being exploited by others and believing the only way to save their child from this was to kill them.
  • Tends to agree with Magneto in his philosophy that people with powers can't peacefully coexist with those who discriminate against them, and is opposed to Professor X as a result, though she has respect for how he tries to do things the idealistic way, anyway; it reminds her of Ykka from her own world. She just thinks the whole thing is horribly deluded in the end. When she found out from them about William Stryker being in the pantheon she was not happy, recognizing in his rhetoric the things she has heard in her own world.
  • Despite his attempts to claim he is different from Stryker and would never go as far, Essun is not and will never be convinced Copen Kamizono is any different. If he were really just about attacking individual people with powers who are bad, he wouldn't blame all of them - their humanity and right to not be just a category should be non-negotiable.
  • She has a lot of sympathy for Ultimecia for how she felt she was driven to her actions due to being persecuted for her powers, while she herself ultimately wouldn't go as far as threatening the world or dooming it by inaction despite some of the Stone Eaters around her assuming she would, she can understand very well why someone who felt the world's dehumanization of them gave them no other choice would act in the way she did.
  • Is very curious about the lunar-related deities due to how her world didn't have a moon and hadn't for many millennia. She ended up striking friendships with Princess Luna, Usage Tsukino, and Selene. Luna in particular loves how Essun really appreciates just how important the moon is given how she's had a history of others not appreciating it.
  • She tried starting a conversation with Moon Man once, thinking he was another lunar deity, only to find he despised her for having dark-colored skin. Essun has never encountered that particular kind of bigotry, but his attitude is very familiar given all the discrimination she's faced in her own life, so she hates him and anyone like him.
  • She immediately tried to act as a mother and mentor figure to Toph Beifong, seeing as they have similar powers and she reminds Essun of her own daughter who's around the same age. The feeling doesn't seem to be mutual, though - Toph just sees Essun as another controlling parent figure trying to tell her what to do and make her suppress who she is to "protect" herself.
  • She and Remus Lupin relate to each other in how he has been discriminated against for being a werewolf, similarly to her, though like Professor X he finds her cynicism off-putting and overly gloomy. When she heard about Fenrir Grayback, she initially was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, knowing that in her world orogenes like Misalem who were remembered as evil and fully embracing the stereotypes of causing destruction with their powers were actually victims of a Historical Villain Upgrade, but she's yet to see any sign he's not what everyone says he is. Though she still remains skeptical, she doesn't like him because of him fitting and encouraging the stereotypes.
  • Anti-Mage terrifies her with his power to resist and drain magic and his mission to track down and kill magic users, because he reminds her too much of the Guardians from her own world, who had similar Anti-Magic powers and implacability in hunting down and controlling or killing orogenes, and she's suffered a lot of trauma at their hands. She fears Tirek for the same reason, knowing he could easily drain her powers and leave her helpless, though she doesn't have the same visceral hatred for him as she does for Anti-Mage since he's not doing it out of any sort of bigotry.
  • She spends a lot of time in the house of Magic and Sorcery, getting a chance to learn how magic works in all of the worlds different members of the Pantheon hail from. She's never had the curiosity and skill of understanding such things that Alabaster did, but for his sake she wants to be able to understand how it works - and for pragmatic reasons, if she has to defend herself. She's even surprised that magic is such a common term in these worlds, because in hers it was an ancient term for the energy that underpinned orogeny that was lost in modern times, which she had to learn to understand to harness the Obelisk Gate. She was quite interested in Edward Elric's claims that his universe's alchemy was a kind of science, and talked to him quite a bit about it, with Essun herself sharing what she knows of how it works in her world. She thinks he's a considerably less frustrating teacher than Alabaster was. She has also talked to Albus Dumbledore about the magic in his world, though she doesn't find him entirely trustworthy with how he always seems to be planning something and acting like a paternalistic teacher.
  • Essun has formed a strong bond with Joel, as the two have found they are similar in many ways - both are practical, cynical people who have used their skills to survive an apocalypse, and are protective of their children owing to having lost a child (two, in Essun's case) in the past in a horrific manner. Being cynical about anyone who tries to sell her on making grand sacrifices to save the world when that world has oppressed and used her for her whole life, she is one of the people who completely agrees with Joel about being willing to kill the Fireflies and sabotage the cure to save Ellie, and she'll defend him from anyone who tries to criticize him for it. For her own part, while she was willing to sacrifice her own life to save the world she couldn't, in the end, bear to let her daughter die even if it meant she "won".

Lesser Gods

    Anti-Mage 
Anti-Mage, God of Magic Haters (Anti-Fun, BurNIng, Magina)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Anti-Mage_654.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Mana Void with Manta Style crossed infront of it.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Taking reduced damage from magic, considering magic inherently vile and all its users evil, being nameless, having a taste for talking in a different way, having a title that perfectly describe his occupation, life, mission and powers, being an extremist with understandable intentions, teleporting in the blink of an eye, burning his enemy's mana with his attacks.
  • Domains: Combat, Anti-Magic, War, Profession.
  • High Priest: Magebane.
  • Followers: Mage killers and hunters in general.
  • Allies: Omniknight, Silencer, Amon, Ange, Brightwing, Tracer
  • Rivals: The Champions of Runeterra, Touma Kamijou, Illidan Stormrage.
  • Enemies: Terrorblade, Lion, Carl the Invoker and GUAE Malum Magia, Embryo.
  • Teethclenched Teamwork: Good-aligned Mages and Sven
  • Immediately following Anti-Mage's ascension, because of his mission to end magic by killing all users of magic, he was banned from being even five miles near the House of Magic. Anti-Mage is still grumbling about that.
  • A common misconception is that Anti-Mage has two twin brothers. These "twins" are actually illusions created out of nowhere with Anti-Mage's favorite weapon, Manta Style. Though they're not as powerful, they're still dangerous against mages as they can burn mana just like the real Anti-Mage.
  • Anti-Mage is often quick to inform confused gods that his powers are the result of "Purity of Will", not magic.
  • Despite his nickname and reputation, Anti-Mage doesn't truly hate fun, as he has been known to laugh heartily and loudly from time to time (and not necessarily while he's in the middle of killing mages). It's just that mages from the battlefield of the ancients consider spellcasting fun. Anti-Mage, being who he is, occasionally comes around to ruin these mages' fun, thus earning him his nickname.
  • Once upon a time, Anti-Mage decided to be a hard carry when he's normally just a midgame carry. Sven shut him down. Anti-Mage still bears a grudge toward him for that day. The rumors that Sven has a relationship with a mage doesn't help.
    • And ever since that day, merely listening to that kind of Training Montage music is enough to drive Anti-Mage nuts and try to get out of the vicinity until he can't listen to that song anymore, if he's not wrecking the music source already.
  • Nortrom the Silencer is probably the one "spellcaster" that Anti-Mage don't mind, since he's technically not using magic and his spells are primarily anti-magic in nature.
  • Although he's not a major threat normally, this changes dramatically if he manages to get farmed, as accurately illustrated by this comic.
  • The phrase "Friendship is Magic" is a huge Berserk Button for Anti-Mage. If you're lucky, he will just rant about foul sorcery and shout "EVIL is Magic" in the place of commas. If you're unlucky, you will find yourself with no mana for weeks.
  • Anti-Mage used to be a Night Elf once. Ironic, considering that magic is the reason why the Night Elves exist in the first place. While he doesn't appear to remember his past, Anti-Mage admits to faintly recalling some strange memories when he learned of the ascension of the Night Elf, Malfurion Stormrage. Malfurion himself cause some worry in Anti-Mage however, for some of the memories shows a familiar looking figure as his father. He was also shocked to hear that Malfurion fought in the battlefield of the ancients in the past, before passing the mantle to a different hero.
    • Eventually Anti-Mage found out that he has similar fighting style with Malfurion's brother, Illidan. While after a bout of pure fighting made them consider each other Worthy Opponent, Anti-Mage can't help but wonder if Illidan's eye situation was yet another result of the evils of magic.
  • He had an actual name once, Magina. He probably chose to discard it for obvious reasons.
  • Anti-Mage was also once brothers with Terrorblade, as Malfurion can attest to. However, neither Anti-Mage or Terrorblade does not remember this. Not that it stopped them from being influenced into being hostile against each other.
  • Has a weird relationship with Touma Kamijou, with Anti-Mage acknowledging that his technique of punching mages are stuffs of legends. Except that Anti-Mage has been telling him that there are more ways than punching mages to counter them. Depriving them from their power source is one example.
    • He also has great respect on Kiritsugu Emiya, the well-reknown Magus Killer, as he admires some of his 'pragmatic' ways to kill off mages.
  • To him, benders are mages under a different name, and for that reason has chosen to work together with Amon. As Anti-Mage is unaware of Amon's secret, he mistakes his power to de-bend for an exotic form of "Purity of Will".
  • When news of GUAE Malum Magia's creation made its way to Anti-Mage's attention, Anti-Mage reluctantly decided that he might have to side with the "lesser evil" this time around if he wants to bring the entire GUAE division down.
  • "The magic ends here."
    • Though some can misread it as "The fun ends here."

  • Conflicted opinion on: The Antagonist (Hatred), Shinobu Sensui
  • Hody Jones is a Great White Shark Fish-man, former Neptune army soldier and head of the New Fish-Man Pirates. Inspired by the teachings of Fisher Tiger and Arlong, he's a fishman supremacist who was offended by Queen Otohime's attempt to find peace with humans and tried to cause racial tension by hiring a human to burn the signature box, assassinate Otohime and frame the human. Taking over Fishman Island he planned to execute everyone sympathetic to humanity and devastate the island with the ship Noah. To boost his strength he and his crew had Energy Steroids, which he gulped down by the truckload. Ultimately he was outclassed when going up against Monkey D Luffy and the Straw Hats and the drugs took their toll, rendering his men fragile old shells of their former selves. However his hatred remains the same.
  • By all accounts, Hody Jones was destined to rot away in jail as a severely aged, dried up criminal. Melkor had other plans, however; he was interested in using another supremacist to serve the cause of Evil and felt spurned when Fisher Tiger flatly denied, since he may hate humans but there are many lines he won't cross in spite of the hatred. Hody Jones had no lines he wouldn't cross and envisions himself as an embodiment of prejudice. Through ties in the Hall of Drugs and Pharmaceuticals he whipped up a drug that could restore Hody to full health, however if he goes into withdrawal he'll start rapidly aging again. It's convenient for the GUAE as it also serves as a proverbial leash on him. Nitrus Bio was made to commission these healing drugs, which he wasn't all that enthused by as he doesn't like helping a major racist no matter the compensation he gets.
  • Though he hates all humans, he takes special umbridge against the Straw Hats for causing his defeat. Never mind that his abuse of Energy Steroids would've guaranteed he could never live long enough to make his vision a reality or that there were plenty of people who would've stopped his plan in its tracks, being devastated by Zoro and later Luffy even in preferable conditions fills him with even more hate. The fact Monkey D Luffy destroyed his Idol Arlong's operations in the East Blue makes him his personal Arch-Enemy, and even in a completely frail state demanded a rematch. Noting some similarities, he hates the pirate Jack Sparrow. Within his own 'verse he has major beef with Whitebeard and Big Mom for claiming Fisherman Island as their territory. Whitebeard did so to protect the people of the island from other pirates and Big Mom made a deal to protect it as her territory in return for lots of sweets. Far as he's concerned the island wouldn't need any help from a mere human to protect it unless the humans were his slaves.
  • A former follower of Reverend Stryker, and not proud of the fact. Hody Jones despises humans, and anyone sympathetic to them. This includes other Fishman, who he will give the Category Traitor treatment. The reason why he was a follower, though, is because his bigotry was just as hollow and petty as the Sinister Minister. He grew up in Fishman District, a run-down and isolated place where sentiments against humanity ran so intensely that Hody was radicalized into someone who would exterminate all humans. By his own admission humans did nothing to him, instead he was Taught to Hate. This is seen as empty and hollow by most, especially Hody's idol Fisher Tiger. He had a legitimate reason to hate humans, if one he admitted was irrational, yet he would still free them from slavery and wouldn't harm an innocent. Hody deludes himself into thinking this is some sort of test by Fisher and that he is being deceived over how he "really" died, and he refuses to listen to Fisher's scathing condemnation over how his treatment of his fellow Fishmen makes him just as bad as the humans who actually deserve his scorn.
  • About the only humans he has anything resembling a positive opinion on is so-called "Not Important" and Shinobu Sensui, and that's only because they have a deep hatred for humanity despite being human. The latter at least has reasons and clear motives to why he's the way he is, so he's not a fan of Hody. As for the Antagonist, he doesn't work well with anyone but he isn't going out of his way to fight him either. Hody Jones will begrudgingly accept the aid of humans who despise their own kind at least half as much as he does and appreciate what he's doing on some level, but just barely. Odio isn't all that impressed by him and again, he has a stronger motive for why he's misanthropic, but he'll tolerate Hody to a degree. Gulliver, while misanthropic, wouldn't sink to the level of Hody Jones and is simply disgusted by him.
  • Hody Jones is not the only pantheon resident to have become prejudiced from his environment and teachings, rather than any personal slight. Jojo Betzler used to literally be a Nazi rather than figurative like Hody, but given his youth he fell more into the Innocent Bigot group. The time he spent with the Jewish runaway Elsa changed his worldview and he realized the true evil of the Nazi cause. That someone like Hody could remain so bone-deep in his hatred and never grow out of his ways is something terrible to Jojo. Not that the fishman could care, as he sees him as just another human. To an extent he feels the same to Reverend Stryker and Belos despite their similarities, but he admits that "if they were Fishmen, I might've liked the cut of their jib". Belos doesn't hold any prejudice to Hody in return, but that's because his hatred is more towards witches and demons and he has not been raised to hate fish-men or those like fish-men. As Hody has grander ambitions (read; Take Over the World) he considers them rivals, both in his goals and to a degree ideologically.
  • With the clear as day comparisons between him and Emperor Belos, Luz and Amity despise him almost as intensely. Hody considers witches no different than humans, so he holds them in contempt almost to the degree Belos does. After all, this is a Fishman who despite not having a genuine reason to hate humans, hates them so much he'll outright sabotage peace attempts and subject humans to slavery, the very sin that would motivate his idol Fisher's prejudices. They've called him just as bad as the worst human persecutors is a concept, which entered one ear and exited the other as he considers any cruelty Fishmen will do to humans to be completely justified, and thinks Fishmen who don't agree with them are race traitors. He doesn't respect their Interspecies Romance either, but his hatred of them as humans or close enough takes precedent. Another group of Disney deities who really hate Hody Jones are Anne Boonchuy and her friends, and the Plantar Family, as they fought against the Core who planned to invade Earth and kill off Humanity so it could stripmine the planet for resources.
  • Magneto and the Scarlet Witch are appalled at his bigotry as they both have suffered anti-mutant prejudice. Magneto is especially pissed off at Hody given he's also a Holocaust survivor...this also ties into Amity's hatred of him, since she narrowly avoided being a Genocide Survivor as well. Hody tried to call him a Hypocrite by saying he's a different breed of supremacist, however the magnetic mutant is seen by most as morally superior due to the clear moral limits he has in his cause and ability to sympathize with other people. Not to mention he actually has a reason for why he's the way he is and is capable of changing his own prejudiced ways for the greater good.
  • The idea of living in peace with humans sickens him and that Fishmen should take their rightful place as the Master Race...again, quite Nazi of him. Personally he thinks the Nazi's racial ideology is stupid despite being no different. The Red Skull may see him as inferior (though not a complete "untermensch") but he holds some respect for his vision of spreading hate and dedication to do whatever it takes to achieve his vision. Hody may hate him for being human, but he was entranced by the reach of HYDRA and has been inspired to form his own organization to spread his cause. HYDRA ignores him as he's overly reckless whenever he gets a bit of power, and his supremacist views do not match any of their member's supremacists views. Hody has also been compared to a card-carrying member of the KKK, a comparison that annoys Col. Benjamin Cameron. It's a fair comparison as outside of racism many actual KKK members joined the military almost solely to get the abilities to better persecute members of other races. What bothers him is that he would never treat his own race as badly as Hody has in the name of his own racist ideology.
  • Draco Malfoy and Sirius Black come from families with long-standing bigotry, with Draco's dad having been a Death Eater. As an adult Draco has fortunately matured and first hand learned how bad supremacy can get. Sirius never was bigoted, and he ended up being disinherited because of it. They're quite disappointed in Hody Jones for letting his racist ideology make him the worst version of himself, comparing him to Voldemort. Voldemort considers the comparison insulting, but that's more down to being significantly more competent than Hody despite his notorious arrogance. He considers Fishmen dirty though not to the extent of his hatred for Muggles and mugglebornnote . He would consider hiring him as he did Fenrir however Hody refuses to be subservient to a human and he has his own goals that'd probably conflict with the Death Eaters. Personally he doesn't get Voldemort's own prejudices against Muggles or muggle-born, but that's down to seeing all types of human as equally inferior to one another.
  • Freeing his men wasn't a condition getting him into the Trope Pantheon. Not that he cares enough to bring it up, as he can always find new allies. Though he believes fishmen are the Master Race, he sees other non-humans as better than humans and worthy enough to be proper allies instead of slaves. There could be an element of pragmatism there, but he has also found likeminded non-humans who hold contempt towards homo sapiens. One of the few he calls a friend in the Trope Pantheon is Koba, as the two are quite alike; driven in their vendetta against human beings, but prove deeply hypocritical, having little to no problem with killing even their own kind. While it is true that Koba has reasons to hate humanity unlike Hody, it's not like it justifies them. Hody Jones is an ally of the Dark Dragon due to shared supremacist hatred of humans, but it's more of an alliance of convenience between them.
  • As a humanoid great white shark with a real mean streak, Hody is rather fond of Bruce. Being a regular shark (if an abnormally aggressive one), Bruce is incapable of normal alliances, however Hody is able to "tame" him to a certain extent. He's figured out the right chum mix, which unfortunately includes whatever unfortunate human he managed to kill. The pirahnas in the Hall of Fish are other animals the Fish-Man wants to make his pets in hopes of taming them. Personally he thinks the Kraken is really cool for all the human ships it has sunk, but he's smart enough to realize that it would not distinguish his own ship from human ships so this is more a "from a glance" respect. Another sea beast he's fond of is Moby-Dick, sympathizing with its vendetta with whalers and legend. Well OK, "sympathize" might be too strong a word from him, but it's close enough. He was intrigued but also revolted to learn about Susie Haltmann, who first encountered by Kirby in Overload Ocean; the mechanized version of Planet Popstar's Olive/Orange Ocean, complete with mechanized sea life, including mechanized sharks. Though he considers it an abomination, he is also intrigued
  • Hody Jones considers fishmen to not just be humanoid fish like himself, but mermaids. Merfolk like Orm, however, he puts on a lower racial ranking as they are bit too human for his likings, however he doesn't hold radical hatred towards them like he does "true" humans. He does hate Aquaman on a racial basis though, as he is mixed blood between an Atlantean queen and normal human lighthouse worker, a loving match that runs antithetical to his worldview. Basically he considers his mother a race traitor and Aquaman an abomination, only to get slapped across the room by Aquaman for his horrible views. Namor approved of this, as while he has a complicated, often fraught relationship with surface dwellers he would never sink to the lows of Hody. Orm detests Hody too, as he has standards to his radical views. The Atlantean Lucier has told Hody to piss off due to his racist views, however he still yells at him for being pretty buddy-buddy with humans even past the whole mutual struggle against dragonkind, and considers his Demihuman status to be barely any better than human. As for what he thinks of the Deep, he thinks he's a mutant freak and "mongrel man-fish". While the Deep isn't popular, being a self-pitying celebrity sex offender with a fish fetish, he would never be as violent or hateful as Hody and is deeply reluctant to do anything that'd amount to treason.
  • His ultimate goal is to take on the World Government, enslave all humanity and become Pirate King. Having never been to the surface, he's got the idea that a force of 100,000 pill-popping underlings is enough to take them on and has no idea how out of his depth he is. Well, maybe more like was, since being part of the Trope Pantheon he is aware of powerful beings who if he can tame, could help him legitimately take on the World Government. And yet he has gotten it into his head that he can one day rule the Trope Pantheon. This new big scheme was first to get the support of Rahab and the Deep Sea King. In fairness, this ended up working as they both hold contempt for humanity and a preference for sea life, so Hody Jones is welcome to hang out and support them. Then he decided to try and control Kyogre in order to flood the world for Fishmen to inherit and humanity to be enslaved or perish...that was a lot less successful. The legendary was surprised to see Archie personally confront Hody for his hateful ways despite his history. Archie wanted to expand the seas for the sake of Pokemon, but he doesn't hate his fellow man and repented when he realized the sea levels would rise beyond what he hoped for.
  • Hody Jones is hoping to radicalize fellow aquatic deities into his way of thinking. His current targets are the Gill-Man and members of Bikini Bottom, funnily enough. Since the latter's residents barely, if ever interacts with (or is even aware of the existence of) humans they had no idea what they were saying. He pointed to the terrifying monster, the Cyclops, being human. Spongebob was clueless at all this since he met David Hasselhoff and doesn't get why Hody is so hateful. Hody wants to push for King Triton to agree with his views, however he and Ariel are disgusted by his actions. Yes Triton wasn't fond of surface dwellers for some time because they were responsible for his wife's death, but he has come to tolerate them and never behaved as atrociously as Hody. Hody considers his change of views to be a great loss, and he feels the same with the Dracula from Hotel Transylvania. While the Castlevania Dracula is more in line with his hatred towards humans, he is annoyed by how arrogant and hollow Hody's hatred is.
  • In spite of these failures, one piscine deity ended up allying with him; Joe. He seeks to overthrow humanity with hyper-intelligent fish thanks to an intelligence potion (also an antidote from being turned into a fish). He even convinced Hitchcocks' Birds to side with him over a mutual hatred of humans, though the avians are more interesting in revenge against birds being killed than racism. However, Hody was upset discovering the effect of Joe's potion on Fishmen; it enhanced their intelligence, but it made already the anthropomorphic Fishmen closer to human. Full consumption would turn a Fishman fully human, which they would survive so long as they're not underwater since Fishmen are technically amphibious, and enhance their normal human-level intellect to that of a super-genius. As much as a potential benefit this has Hody Jones absolutely refuses to let it be used and is terrified someone will use it on him. He'll try to avoid the human transformation first, though.
  • His biggest dream in radicalization is to convince Poseidon, Greek god of the seas, that humans are scum and should all be drowned or or enslaved. Poseidon does have times where he actually agrees to a certain extent with Hody, such as thinking they were destroying the planet. However he considers this mindset an Old Shame and while mercurial and at times cruel, he regards Hody Jones' views as "racist garbage" and has told him to shoe instead of risk incurring his wrath. He has attempted to radicalize "less difficult" figures like Monstro and Golganneth. The former he sees as a powerful monster he can tame, however Monstro ignored this as the whale doesn't have the capacity to even care about prejudices and treats Fishmen and humans equally as potential food. The latter sees him as an insignificant dust mote, as just because he's a god of seas and skies doesn't mean he cares about his ideologies. He tried to reach out towards Greta of the Reverberation Ensemble due to being a vicious shark woman but learning she Was Once a Man turned him off. She just thinks his human hatred and supremacy talk is irrelevant, instead wondering what he'd taste like after being sufficiently tortured and cooked to perfection.
  • While he is mainly an enemy with heroic pirates, there are also some pretty evil pirates he butts heads with. As much as Orm and especially Arthur Curry hate him, they also think his hatred of Black Manta is completely understandable. David Hyde is a man who would poison the entire ocean to hurt Aquaman, infamous murdered his baby boy and if he's not a total sociopath he's damn close to it. Far as Hody is concerned he's a walking, talking argument against humanity, something Black Manta laughs at as he agrees with many of his accusations but in that way he's not pretentious like Hody. Another pirate, one easily as bad as him that he feuds with, is Euron Greyjoy. Euron is a wannabe Übermensch sea farer with a grandiose vision, but he's considerably more manic than Hody. He thinks Hody's supremacist ideology is stupid and his vision of aspiring to something like the Drowned God (except not quite like because he actually thinks it's a stupid concept for a god), and enjoys taunting him that he has not seen the world as he has.
  • He hasn't really considered aliens in his worldview, since while the setting of One Piece is a World of Weirdness outside of some funky things happening on the moon there's no recorded aliens. And many aliens who want to get rid of humans wouldn't see Fishmen as much different. The VUX want to kill humans because they find them unfathomably ugly. They do not care for Fishman supremacy, musing that they "look marginally more tolerable than humans", but Hody respects their hatred of humans all the same. He also respects the hatred Octogeddon has towards humans, due to how he will tear apart their monuments over slight offenses. The massive cephalopod doesn't care for his respect since it may be petty, but it's not nearly as racist as Hody.
  • Some aliens took note of his hatred and had a more positive outlook...Frieza and Baby. Frieza committed genocide on the Saiyans out of fear that they would overthrow them, though nowadays he's less racist and though no less sociopathic he accepts Goku as a Worthy Opponent. As such, Hody is more an amusing relic to him, one that he tolerates and likes his spirit, but is otherwise ambivalent to him and his supremacist views since he doesn't care about racial supremacy more so than his own. Baby holds more respect as he has a raging hatred towards the Saiyans. Granted, the Saiyans actually did make his people suffer however the parasite voids any sympathy he could get due to his Revenge Myopia against those who weren't involved in the genocide and not truly caring about his people since he wished their planet back and not his actual race.

  • In the antebellum-era United States, two families were close friends: abolitionist Stonemans in the North, and plantation-owning Camerons in the South. The Civil War forced the families to fight each other, and the conflict ended the way everyone knows, with the North winning. Reconstruction began and the South was forced to change its ways by the North; most importantly, the abolition of slavery and black people getting rights. Ben Cameron, a decorated colonel admired both by his brothers-at-arms and Union soldiers for his bravery and honor, would not abide by these changes and so started an organization, the Ku Klux Klan, with the purpose of oppressing free black people and protecting his fellow white Southerners. This being a rather different era, Cameron got even the abolitionist Stonemans and other Northerners to side with his cause and ultimately succeeded in keeping black people oppressed. Needless to say, while he was hailed as a hero back then, the story comes across in a rather different tone now.
  • Cameron's ascension proved to be one of the most controversial events ever in the Pantheon, with several deities criticizing the Main House for "legitimizing" the KKK. Which doesn't matter to the neutral Main House, with its only concerns being that the beings that get ascended are competent at representing their chosen trope and that they have an interesting story. For better or worse, Cameron fits those bills, topped off by his work of origin being hugely influential on the medium of film. Cameron's own reaction at being ascended was to feel honored and gracefully accept it, in spite of the staggering number of deities booing him at his instatement ceremony. It got worse when he announced his organization (at least, his chapter) would be fully operational in the Pantheon to protect the hallowed place from those who would sully it, as he once protected his Southern home. He did not specify who he meant by "those who would sully it", but one can guess.
  • For obvious reasons, Cameron is a guy who is kind of strapped for reliable allies, as nowadays even the most evil deities would balk at the sort of virulent bigotry and segregationism that Cameron espouses. Even in his time, some people would find him too much. His fellow Southerner Scarlett O'Hara is someone who suffered greatly from the South losing the Civil War as her family was left impoverished. However, Scarlett has no interest whatsoever in Cameron's "just" cause, only caring to secure stability for herself, and her family next. Cameron is rather miffed that Scarlett has such selfish and small-minded motivations, but reckons she is worthy of some respect given how well she has done for herself, often on her lonesome, in the aftermath of a terrible war. So despite everything else, Cameron still sees Scarlett as a Southern sister and would protect her from her enemies.
  • Another Confederate soldier who isn't exactly devoted to the cause is John Carter, largely because he became disillusioned after the deaths of his wife and his children. Cameron understands his grief, as he also lost much of his family in the Civil War, though he can't help but be disappointed that Carter has totally forsaken his life on Earth to go cavorting on Mars, of all the things. Carter doesn't seem to really care about white supremacy either; presumably living on a planet alongside multiple alien races has done away with such a mentality, if he ever had it. In fact, he has asked Cameron if all the hate and destruction is worth the cause, to which Cameron replied that though many undoubtedly hate him, he himself feels no hate for the blacks; he is simply trying to uphold what is natural and right. Carter can only shake his head and sigh at such folly. That said, they agree to not get in the way of one another.
  • Has heard plenty about the Saint of Killers, a deranged ex-Confederate who went to hell, became death itself, then killed God and took over heaven. As a good, God-fearing Christian, Cameron is quite certain he wants nothing to do with the man and his laundry list of sins. It rather upsets him to know one of his copatriots could lose himself to such an extent, but either way Cameron thinks the Saint of Killers has gone way too far to be reached out to. The Saint of Killers didn't seem to really care about Cameron either, when someone informed him of another Confederate ascending. Presumably he has too much of a beef with God and similar beings to care about anything lesser.
  • The plantation- and slave-owner Calvin Candie, on the other hand, feels nothing but admiration for the KKK leader. Cameron, however, believes slave-owners should treat their slaves (at least those who know their place) with kindness and condescension, like a father who only uses the belt against his children when their behavior becomes intolerable; he thus looks at the sadistic Candie with no small amount of disdain, especially after learning about Candie's wrestling and prostitution rings, which he supplies with his slaves. Cameron also thinks he would be personally embarrassed if a slave of his became the true power behind his estate, which is the case with Candie's head slave Stephen. This only causes him to look at Candie with even more contempt, while somewhat admiring Stephen's competence and loyalty to the whites. Either way, Cameron can't really write off Candie, as he's one of the few deities to wholeheartedly support the KKK's cause, so Cameron has to tolerate him.
  • Somehow worse than Candie are the Slavers, a violent and unscrupulous gang of human traffickers specialized in selling women into sexual slavery. Cameron was so completely outraged at the magnitude of their monstrosity (although he was rather focused on the selling of white women as though they were black) that he led his clanmates in a raid on the Slavers' temple, brutalizing the three traffickers and freeing whatever "merchandise" they could find. Given virtually everybody in the Pantheon who's half-decent despises the Slavers, Cameron got no special brownie points for that one, though there were certainly a lot of deities laughing at the Slavers' misfortune. The Slavers, meanwhile, are deeply frustrated that the Pantheon now seems to have, of all things, a "moral" slaver who takes issue with them and acts on it, and so keep him relatively high on the list of people to assassinate.
  • Sadly for him, he can't do something similar to the Dark Elves in the Pantheon; they're just on another level of power and would exterminate him like a bug. Thus Cameron is left to seethe at and somewhat fear how they enslave humans to do all the necessary work, while the Elves themselves enjoy various hedonistic pursuits from indulging in luxury to engaging in high-risk battles. It does not occur to him (or perhaps he selectively ignores) that nowadays, the old South is seen in a similar, albeit less extreme light; slaves being left to do all the unpleasant tasks, while their white masters do little but attend balls.
  • When he was sentenced to be hanged at the end of the Civil War, his mother personally went to see then-President Abraham Lincoln to beg him to pardon Cameron, which was granted. Lincoln also intended to show clemency to the South, plans which were derailed by his assassination. Cameron looks upon Lincoln with warmth for all of this, nicknaming him "the Great Heart", lamenting his assassination and cursing his diabolical killer; if only he had lived, perhaps the Klan wouldn't have been necessary. Lincoln himself agrees to a certain extent, as he looks with discomfort upon Cameron's deeds and laments the evil that has befallen African-Americans after the Civil War's end and his death. One step forward, two steps back, as the saying goes. It was rather disappointing to Cameron to meet with Lincoln's disapproval, but then he remembered that despite his clemency policy, Lincoln is still a part of the Union. It's just how it is and Cameron doesn't hold any ill will against him.
    • While Lincoln may be somewhat understanding, on an intellectual level, of why Cameron does what he does (he still denounces the KKK's activities), Ulysses S. Grant is much more staunch in his opposition of the KKK, to the point where he managed to quell its first iteration. This enraged Cameron upon learning of it, as in his eyes this meant those Radical Republicans in the vein of Austin Stoneman, who were trying to humiliate the South, ultimately triumphed. Although Cameron can rest easy with the knowledge that the KKK rose from the ashes again and again, with its second iteration being directly attributed to his story inspiring many people. This fills him with pride, while Grant is left feeling dismayed that his efforts were for naught in the long-term.
  • Cameron occasionally hears rumblings that his klan should also be persecuting Jews, homosexuals, and other groups. While he's not that fond of those either, he thinks the subjugation of blacks specifically is paramount. He would shortly discover that a lot of modern Klansmen (or just racists) subscribe to another ideology called Nazism. While some of its tenets are agreeable to Cameron, he was shocked to find that many Nazis espoused the complete extermination of inferior minorities, including blacks. Cameron is fully behind subjugation and deportation, and occasionally lynching someone who "deserves" it, but total extermination is criminal drivel to him and he refuses people who believe in that to be in his klan. He also denounces nazis in general, considering them an absolutely loathsome group.
  • No black deities (except perhaps for content slaves) are willing to just lie down and accept the presence of the KKK in the Pantheon, and so they push back against Cameron and his troupe with all they have in hopes of someday ousting them. Although Cameron absolutely sees them as the enemy, he does often find himself impressed with some of their number's determination and cleverness, qualities that he never really saw in the blacks back home. He finds Coffy in particular a force to be reckoned with, seeing as she has no problem taking matters into her own hands and dishing out retribution all on her own. Coffy does not return his respect, nor does she buy into his Southern gallantry at all, and calls him "the biggest white motherfucker of them all". She seems to take special pleasure in crashing Cameron's group's meetings in spectacular and deadly ways, generally involving a lot of shooting.
  • T'Challa/Black Panther has his own history of fighting the KKK. In Cameron's case, T'Challa thought he seemed reasonable, so he tried a different approach and cordially visited him to discuss the very advanced country of Wakanda, with T'Challa ultimately asking Cameron if he really had concrete proof that blacks were so inferior to whites, when they were able to build such a nation on their own. Cameron thought Wakanda was all fine and good, but insisted that blacks do not truly belong in America and thus can only be there under certain conditions (ie: being subservient to the white man who was there "first"). Then he made the absurd proposition that perhaps T'Challa could take all the African-Americans to his own country where they would better fit in, which would certainly be a big service to the Southern whites. Let's say T'Challa doesn't think too highly of Cameron's intelligence after that, although Cameron was legitimately impressed how well T'Challa carried himself as a king.
    • Black Panther is not even the only superhero to grapple with the KKK; Superman himself has had his share of encounters with a group called the Klan of the Fiery Kross, who were seeing a resurgence after WWII. Although they were targeting Asian-Americans, their prejudice still strikes a chord in Superman as he too is technically a foreign immigrant in America. He was also personally part of a series of ads promoting inclusivity at a time when the KKK was respected. So, he does not look upon Cameron very kindly. Cameron would like Superman to know that his chapter, at least, would never target a model American like him, but he supposes it's pointless since Superman seems so staunchly against the KKK.
  • Aveline de Grandpré and Adéwalé are both black assassins who are dedicated to fighting the evil of slavery, which by extension means they have a bone to pick with Cameron and the KKK. Given Cameron's battle strategy is generally to charge head-on with great fanfare, he and his klan are rather mismatched against stealthy assassins with clever tactics, making him think that maybe they should invest in acquiring their own assassins to stand a chance, even if he personally thinks it's dishonorable.
  • Anakin Skywalker feels deep contempt for Cameron. Anakin may not be black, but he and his mother were still slaves and they suffered a lot under their master, making Anakin fundamentally opposed to slavery in all its forms, so he feels great anger seeing Cameron defend it like it's the most natural thing in the world. Cameron does find Anakin's situation lamentable (if only because he's white), but at the same time, he thinks the Empire, which Anakin was aligned with, is an awful lot like the Union, as they both imposed their wills. Anakin is fortunately no longer an Empire lackey, but either way, Cameron won't drop his stance on slavery, so it would appear they are perennially opposed.
  • One ally he did not expect to support his cause came in the form of a piano player with a crescent moon for a head. While Cameron himself was weirded out by Moon Man's unusual appearance, he is willing to take his support so long as Moon can curtail his genocidal urges to kill all black people as Cameron ultimately wants black people to "know their place in the natural order."

  • Domains: Reveals, Prejudice, Prey, Sheep
  • Heralds: Her sheep goons (Doug Ramses, Jesse and Woolter)
  • High Priest: The Orb Piercer
  • Respects: Sam Sheepdog, Doctor Zaius
  • Enemies: Predators in general, especially DAG, those that eat sheep like Spyro the Dragon and Ralph Wolf, Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, Speckles, The Tasmanian Devil, The Phantom Thieves, Fused Zamasu, Judge Doom and and Toon Patrol, Hunter and Bianca, The Killer Rabbit, Cruella DeVil, Isabelle, Otis
  • Wary of: Human deities in general
  • Dawn Bellwether is the Assistant Mayor of Zootopia, working under Mayor Leodore Lionheart. She comes off as shy and demure, but it turns out that this is a mask for a resentful sheep who despises predators. She is the mastermind of a night howler plot to drag their reputation into the mud, so she can push her anti-predator agenda. Not what you'd expect from a herbivorous sheep.
  • Buys into negative predator stereotypes, and claims she's doing what's necessary because predators are strong and loud. However, it's clear she's motivated by racism and she's more concerned with being in power. The Phantom Thieves feels she's similar to Masayoshi Shido in that she pulls a False Flag Operation so that she can "fix" the social problem she caused in secret.
  • The House of Leadership is keeping their eye on Bellwether, as she framed the mayor so as Assistant Mayor she could take over. It was a job she always hated, comparing it to a glorified secretary position. Since Isabelle is a dog — a predator animal — and doesn't like how she abused the position for evil ends, the prejudiced sheep is straight-up banned from any and all Animal Crossing towns.
  • Feels that prey animals need to stay together. Most anthropomorphized prey animals don't like her because of how she blames predators for crimes, though she doesn't have anything against them. Well, except for the Killer Rabbit, who Bellwether considers a terrifying being and antithesis to what rabbits should be. While it's somewhat hypocritical for her to tell another prey animal that they're misbehaving, given how trigger-happy the Killer Rabbit is most aren't going to blame her for that.
  • Has contempt for predators as a whole. Naturally, she hates predators who go after sheep most, such as Spyro. Spyro has pointed out that the sheep he takes for health aren't sentient like the residents of Zootopia, but Bellwether's racism prevents her from seeing it that way. Interestingly, while canines are carnivores she actually respects Sam Sheepdog, because he's a sheep-dog and keeps them safe from predators like Ralph Wolf.
  • More than even Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, Bellwether hates Dag most of all than anyone else in the pantheon. As a truly despicable predator, he is everything she hates about predators personified. She hates and fears him so much she'll work with her prey and even predator enemies in order to stop him.
  • Otis does not like Bellwether for her evil actions, even if she is a staunch enemy of Dag. Sometimes, the enemy of your enemy is still another enemy. Similarly, even though she is as disturbed and disgusted as other animals and animal-lovers by Cruella and her desire to turn animals into fur coats, this doesn't make her friends with anyone else opposed to the wicked fashionista.
  • Has gotten into conflicts with other bigots. Zamasu initially felt that she has a point with predators being vicious, but soon pointed out he sees all mortal beings as violent creatures, including herbivores. Judge Doom hates her because she's a toon, despite being a toon himself, and she already hated him for associating with weasels. Upon examining how monstrous they were, she was disturbed at them for ethical standards as well.
  • Not quite sure what to think about humans. By Real Life standards, they're super-predators on top of the food chain which terrifies her. However in Real Life no other species is known to be on their level of intelligence, and her along with the rest of Zootopia are anthropomorphized aka take after them. Plus she's never met a human before entering the pantheon. She likes to discuss matters of humanity with Dr Zaius, who she considers a wise figure even if they don't agree on many points when it comes to predators and prey.
  • Considers Hunter and Bianca's romance to be utterly disgusting, and has called them both abominations for being a prey animal and predator in a relationship. Still, as much as it revolts her she considers the I Will Survive fan comic talking about it patently absurd in its execution.
  • Never call her Smellwether, the nickname Mayor Lionheart gave her. And don't touch the wool either, it's apparently offensive in sheep culture.
