Pantheon / Childhood and Adolescence

Go To

Infants, Toddlers, Children and Adolescents

The House of Family and Relatives stands as one of the grandest structures within the Pantheon. Among its many halls, the Hall of Children holds a special place, as it is beloved by both young and old. This is because the Heroic Protectors of Family, who are known for their strong parental instincts, shower the younger residents of the Pantheon with affection. However, a concern arose when the Hall of Children became overcrowded, causing worry among the kids and adults alike. After much deliberation, a solution was reached: a new House would be established, dedicated solely to the representation and well-being of the Pantheon's children.

Simultaneously, the idea of a House symbolizing the youth can also be linked to another group: teenagers. Although the presence of representatives for teenagers was not as noticeable as it was for younger individuals, influential figures in the Pantheon argued that the new House should be extended to encompass Youth, specifically children and teenagers. This decision has enabled both demographics to cultivate a stronger sense of belonging and acknowledgment. However, considering that the House primarily represents the younger members of the Pantheon, external organizations have made an endeavor to offer financial and welfare assistance.

The general layout of the House is designed to be varied and colorful, by design and in concept, so one can get the impression that it's a gigantic playground filled with swings, slides, rides, parks, and the occasional joyful music, especially in celebratory days. There is also a large preschool and a children's hospital that was constructed via a deal with the House of Health and Diseases, alongside an orphanage. To present a more fantastical feel to it, this House is also physically connected to fellow Houses of Family, Jobs and Profession and School as they serve as primary benefactors and providers. It also has ties to the Houses of Life and Vitality, Beasts and Fauna and Heroism; the former acknowledges this House as a reminder for morality and how some should take it as a lesson, the middle is open to inviting child animals there for some time for the company (though security between the two Houses is tight to ensure protection), and the latter has many deities that are respected sponsors for the house, not to mention they tend to be popular, aspirational figures for kids.

This house is notorious for the amount of security that is installed within; the outskirts are barricaded by some of the strongest walls constructed, second only to those in the Main House. The walls are filled with cameras, watchtowers, and hired guards who are on a constant lookout for intruders and threats. And speaking of, the list of deities that are banned from even approaching a mile from the House is pretty sizable. Examples include The Grineer Twin Queens and Soldiers who seek to capture "the young and exotic" for new bodies, child Serial Killers like Rorge and Ryuunosuke Uryu, Monster Clowns that specifically target children like Pennywise, SCP-993 and Champ, The Pied Piper, Springtrap, Slenderman, Scott Shelby, Azazel, and Freddy Krueger (and that's just a minuscule of beings that are banned from the House).

  • Anne-Marie is a sweet, adorable little girl who has the unfortunate luck of being an orphan in 1930s New Orleans. Even worse, she is confined to being a forced confidant for a vicious bulldog named Carface Carruthers and his lackeys. As it turns out, Anne-Marie has the strange ability to communicate and interact with animals unfailingly and she is able to determine potential outcomes rather accurately. Found by a duo of dogs and former henchmen of Carface, Charlie Barker and Itchy Itchiford, the two help break Anne-Marie out with the seeming promise of giving her a loving family to be adopted in, though little does she know that Charlie is in fact a dead dog who was resurrected without Heaven's consent and would be sent to Hell should he die again via a stopwatch countdown. The girl is able to use her communication gifts to help Charlie and Itchy out but soon gets uncomfortable and dismayed at how Charlie prioritized his needs, not helped by Carface being hellbent on getting Anne-Marie back. Even after finding a couple, Harold and Kate, who were eager to adopt her, Charlie manipulates the girl into her schemes, which backfires horribly when she falls sick, then hears Charlie rant to Itchy that he doesn't care about her, and is then kidnapped by Carface. While the last finally convinces Charlie that he does indeed care for her, it comes at the cost of his life when he saves Anne-Marie from a burning wreckage and drowning after a fight against Carface. With the help of Itchy and a group of dogs, Anne-Marie is escorted safely and is adopted by Harold and Kate, who also take in Itchy. Before going to sleep, she has one last encounter with Charlie, who was pardoned for his sins and allowed another chance in Heaven where the two affirm their affection and Anne-Marie declares she loves the dog before drifting back to sleep.
  • What happened to Anne-Marie after her tale with Charlie and Itchy remains unknown to all, but it seems likely that she lived out a happy life with Harold and Kate as her guardians. In a strange anomaly, when Anne-Marie first arrived in the Pantheon as a herald to Charlie, even she didn't have any knowledge of her future, but was instead joyful to see that Charlie was back and they embraced in a big hug alongside Itchy. From there on, she mainly remained a companion to the dog, that is until one day when she was given an invitation to a brand new place by Cosmos. Taking her friends along, Anne-Marie reached what appeared to be a playground. It was there that she realized that she was appointed as a deity and that the place was, in fact, a newly constructed House to represent Childhood and Adolescence. Surprised, Anne-Marie wanted assurance about what she was up to, to which Cosmos responded that she was to be a big representative for any ascended children in the Pantheon, something that Harold, Kate, Charlie, and Itchy felt would be a big task to undertake, but seeing that there was a big responsibility, they took it to put as much support as they could for the girl, which Anne-Marie felt glad for. It was a second, grander adventure for the girl, and with a lot more support, Anne-Marie feels more ready and optimistic about how her story would turn out in these divine realms.
  • Anne-Marie is mostly an ordinary girl and she's happy to just lead a comfortable and simple life with Harold and Kate, though she also enjoys the company of any friendly animals she may end up getting involved with, especially Charlie. As a former orphan, she is open to the idea of meeting with others like her who have been through a similar experience, and her kind, sweet nature means she is eager to make good friends with anyone she comes across. Due to her ability to communicate with animals without much problem, she did consider going to the House of Beasts and Fauna and ended up being overwhelmed by just how large and grand it was, though with the support of friends, old and new, she eventually braved through and came to like the place, though Anne-Marie would still rather prefer being in the company of her adopted parents and Charlie. She hopes the Pantheon would allow for a more joyful story for her, but still expresses worry that something scary might threaten her due to the divine realm's scope, though her friends have assured her that they'll do whatever it takes to keep Anne-Marie safe and ensure her happiness in the Pantheon.
  • Due to her general character, Anne-Marie found friends rather easily, especially fellow orphans who underwent hard times and eventually found happiness. These orphans included the likes of Pollyanna Whittier, Anne Shirley, Oliver Twist, Heidi, Sara Crewe, and Annie, and they all generally accept Anne-Marie as a great companion to have around, especially given that she is open and eager enough to explore and go out to have what she says are "fun" days, that is if she gets Harold and Kate's permission. They know each other's tales and how sad they are, but they would rather not focus on that and generally just hang out, play with each other, and see to having an adventure. She also found companionship with Madeline, another orphan who has a number of tales centered around the orphanage she was raised in and her fellow roommates whom Madeline is close with, and Anne-Marie admits that she would very much fit into that orphanage if they had ever met and didn't learn about Harold and Kate, though she prefers having parents. That said, she does value friendship, trust, and being truthful a lot and is emotionally vulnerable, as she can quickly turn despondent if they're ever broken, affirming how her friends always make sure to treat Anne-Marie as someone they would dearly care about.
    • Some orphans have turned out to be very influential and heroic figures and Anne-Marie generally tends to appreciate them a lot and would greatly enjoy the idea of meeting and befriending one. That desire would come true when she came across James Henry Trotter and Mowgli, two kids who lost their parents to a freak animal attack, though both had differing tales, with James being associated with having abusive aunts, living in a giant peach, and being friends with Big Creepy-Crawlies whereas Mowgli would become a Wild Child in the jungles of India and become a generally respected member of the forest whilst dealing with the vengeful, vicious Shere Khan. Both boys learned about Anne-Marie's tale and found it to be a nice if bittersweet one, and conversely, they got to meet and befriend Charlie too, to the extent where they would have some meetups and adventures with Anne-Marie and Charlie, followed by some laughs and rare perils.
    • One of her dreams is to build orphanages and make fellow children like her happy. As a result, she was excited and pleased to see that there were some orphanage founders and managers who have been successful in their practices as well as doing whatever they could to make their residents happy, with Thomas Wayne, King, and Kazuma Kiryu being the most notable ones. While Anne-Marie got along with all of them, they would rather not share their tragic pasts with her mainly because they feel that her happiness matters more and that it would be better to respect and appreciate her for who she is as a person rather than what her past was. Thomas would provide a donation sum to Harold and Kate, intending for the money to be used for Anne-Marie's future while King and Kiryu, having been orphans themselves, are very understanding of Anne-Marie's needs and nature and are more than willing to welcome her to their domains as an honorary guest. That, and given their fearsome reputation as fighters, they are very protective of the orphan girl, and very few would dare to want to threaten them or their loved ones, especially in Kiryu's case in part due to his history as a yakuza.
  • In contrast to Charlie and Itchy, who were more invested in building up a casino business, Anne-Marie was instead more interested in being Happily Adopted and that coming true, she rarely wants to use her communication gifts to provide financial benefit for other animals, clearly being careful about not wanting to be used and exploited. Incidentally, she visits the House of Family and Relatives quite often and, despite its rather chaotic nature, finds a lot of fun there. It's not hard to see Anne-Marie giggle at a bunch of deities fighting over who gets a toilet seat in a mansion wing, or who gets the honor of being a family spokesperson, and there's a sense of adventure to go through in big ruckuses either way. Of course, she enjoys being in the Hall of Surrogate Relationships and getting to learn about a lot of its residents, especially a protective guardian like the T-800 and a usually excitable girl like Yui, in spite of their differences.
    • Given her story, Anne-Marie adores loving parents and guardians, as shown with Harold and Kate, but the fact that there are bad parents, either by blood or adoption, worries and upsets the orphan girl. It was clear that she was going to dislike Lady Tremaine upon learning about her relationship with Cinderella (whom she became friends with) and Tremaine having a pet cat named Lucifer whom she tends to look after doesn't improve Anne-Marie's opinion either. The less said about the Child Abuse Supporters, the better, as shown with the many other good parents in the Pantheon, such as the Kents, who decided to adopt a mysterious baby and even after learning of his extraterrestrial origins, still chose to love and look after him like their son. There's a reason this boy became Superman after all. There was also Miss Bianca and Bernard, who took it upon themselves to protect a litter of orphans from some malicious adults. Anne-Marie saw them as people to look up to and met with them, with the Kents and Bianca and Bernard quickly becoming well-acquainted with the girl and feeling that she has a bright future ahead of her, be it in her world and in the Pantheon. There's also Piccolo, but Anne-Marie doesn't pay much attention to him due to his… green and scary look, even if he's seen as a good guy. While Piccolo isn't vocal about Anne-Marie, he would still protect her as that would be the sort of action that his surrogate son and apprentice, Gohan would do and guesses that he and the orphan girl would get along well if they ever met.
  • Anne-Marie loves dogs and would gladly spend time with them, hence she visits the Hall of Canines quite often, not to mention she would adopt Itchy as her personal pet after she herself was taken in by Harold and Kate. That said, she does have a limit as to how much a dog could mistreat and disrespect her, as shown with Charlie and Carface and thus, she's very wary about which canines she wants to approach and get along with. Among those she befriended included Balto, Pongo, Perdita, Lady, and Tramp, who were quite eager to meet up and play with a dog lover. At the same time, Anne-Marie admires heroic ones like Krypto, Chibiterasu, and Courage and sometimes wonders how great it would be to fly with the former and experience the wonders of painting and myths with the middle, and while the latter deals with lots of horrifying matters, he considers spending time with Anne-Marie one of his favorites. Then there are the more frightening ones like Cerberus and Dag; the former doesn't really mind Anne-Marie and simply sticks to guarding Hell, though it might have an I retesting dynamic with Charlie given his experiences with Heaven and Hell, but the latter is a truly malicious and heartless monster, far worse than Carface and Anne-Marie has been told to stay away from the coyote at all times. Even so, the first time Dag met the orphan girl didn't end well for him either, he thought Anne-Marie would be easy prey until he was met with a sudden suplex from King and the presence of a wrestler in a jaguar costume who looks after orphans was too much of a threat for the evil coyote to handle.
  • While dogs are an obvious one given her relationship with Charlie and Itchy, Anne-Marie is openly very compassionate to animals in general, and her ability to communicate with them more clearly is what's allowed her to establish a closer relationship with some of them than most would. Two animals of note were Baloo and Bagheera, a black bear and a black panther respectively who were surrogate fathers to Mowgli and if the wild boy was to become friends with the orphan girl, then the pair have no problem accepting her and allowing her to hang out with Mowgli. Anne-Marie also found herself talking to horses in the Hall of Ungulates like Maximus, Black Beauty, and Spirit and desires one day to ride on top of one of them, though her short stature means she's going to have to wait for a while before she can, but aside from that sometimes talks to them about how they're doing and what their desire is, with the girl being willing to watch over a race course starring the latter two if she gets time. Her compassionate nature also found similar grounds with Fluttershy, an alicorn with a similar reputation of being an affable presence to everyone she tries to meet, with the alicorn very quickly becoming friends with the orphan girl and setting up dates to look and play with cute, cuddly things, with Anne-Marie clearly looking forward to such events.
    • Although her ability is a unique one, Anne-Marie isn't the only one who can talk to animals without a problem, and even then, she doesn't desire to use her ability to benefit others, feeling that she might get explored and taken advantage of. It took a while before she would eventually open up and get along with those who have a similar level of compassion for animals and would try to help them in whatever way they could, such as Steve Irwin and Eliza Thornberry. The former is a Thrill Seeker, but otherwise respects animals so much that his title as the "Crocodile Hunter" seems almost misleading, not to mention his openly friendly and caring nature while the latter has had multiple occasions of speaking to animals and befriending them, even if some experiences both have faced weren't exactly polite or easy, to say the least. Anne-Marie was inspired by Steve's nature, so learning about his death in the mortal world left her in tears, but he affirms that at the very least, he died doing what he loved and holds no animosity for such, imploring Anne-Marie to pursue her interests and passions as much as she could, with caution and carefulness of course. Eliza figures that she could play a sister role to Anne-Marie, hoping to get the former orphan to be more savvy and quick-witted in dealing with matters regarding animals and Eliza greatly enjoys the idea of going to a couple of wildlife ventures together with Anne-Marie. Though they hope they don't end up in the crosshairs of a dangerous predator or someone who's willing to exploit or harm them.
    • Given her general character, Anne-Marie would come across a particular creature and establish a strong partnership bond with them. To everyone's surprise, this partner would be one of the most powerful and fearsome Legendary Pokémon known. She and Mewtwo happened to meet by chance and, while far from his days as a brutal Blood Knight with a pessimistic view towards humans, the Genetic Pokémon was still aloof and very wary of who to trust. To his admission, Anne-Marie reminded him of a past friend he had, Ambertwo, who was a clone of a deceased girl thanks to the two sharing a bubbly and optimistic attitude, not to mention tragic circumstances. While Mewtwo initially took pity, he was quickly caught in surprise by Anne-Marie's kindness and just seeing him as someone he could simply play and get along with, even with his past actions and reputation. Being reminded by Amber made Mewtwo emotional for a moment, but would quickly come to see the girl as someone he felt attached to and allowed Anne-Marie to hug him and declare him a friend, with the Genetic Pokémon deciding that he would look out and protect her at all times, hence the formation of their partnership. While Mewtwo may not be with Anne-Marie at all times, he is aware of her predicament at all times and god help anyone if he ever senses his partner in danger. He will ensure he will give his partner the happy life that Ambertwo couldn't get and that this is his way of atoning for his past acts. And while Anne-Marie is happy to just see Mewtwo as a friend to talk and play with, many have since been careful about her, given how her partner just so happens to be one of the most formidable and dangerous of all Pokémon, even in comparison to most Legendaries.
  • Despite her love for animals, Anne-Marie's experience with Carface has wisened her to be careful and wary of them as well. Thankfully, she doesn't encounter them most of the time, but she does get rattled by the idea of it and would understandably freak out if there's an animal who has no compunctions about harming her. Alongside Dag, the most unpleasant animal Anne-Marie faced was an unnaturally large crocodile who has an obsession with trying to kill and eat children, though, despite this, he's proven to be very ineffectual at it as his constant boasting before he does what he says gets him undermined. He did it once, only for King Gator to turn up and wrestle him away, and repeated encounters in trying to eat Anne-Marie haven't been any better for the crocodile, such as being knocked into the sky by Krypto, punched by Kiryu in the head so hard he was unconscious for days, and being swung around telekinetically and being thrown into a rock by Mewtwo. Napoleon was another notorious animal and while he doesn't care much for Anne-Marie due to their very differing priorities not really clashing with one another, the girl was horrified by the extent of the pig's lack of care for his fellow animals and his extremely draconic way of leading Animal Farm. She openly called Napoleon a "bad piggie" and while he didn't care to respond to it, just about everyone else agreed with Anne-Marie's sentiment.
  • She is familiar with casinos and gambling due to Charlie's insistence on wanting to lead a gangster life before having a change of heart, but even so, she would want to keep her distance from that sort of theme and lifestyle as much as she could. Still, she doesn't mind the House of Commerce and admits that the place is actually pretty fun to travel around and look at. Its also here where she met Josuke Higashikata and Okuyasu Nijima, a pair of teenagers who, despite their heroics in their native town of Morioh, often tried to gamble in an attempt to win some cash that they'd like to use for their leisure activities like video games and manga. Even Charlie got involved in Josuke and Okuyasu's crazy antics and while Anne-Marie doesn't participate, she does admit to giggling at their actions as she finds them funny and enjoyable. Beyond that, Charlie could relate to the two boys in that sudden responsibilities and dark times forced them to become heroes and they could see how Anne-Marie influenced them. That's how she became friends with them as Josuke and Okuyasu admit that despite Anne-Marie's normalcy, she does have some ability to bring out the best in people if she connects with them and she's generally a good person to have company with. As a result, Josuke and Okuyasu are very protective of Anne-Marie just as much as Charlie and her other friends are.
  • Given the nature of the Pantheon, Anne-Marie was excited to see what Heaven looked like and how the afterlife worked, hence her interest in the House of Death and Postmortem and despite Charlie's claims that Heaven is "boring" as far as he's concerned. She found the House a bit spooky but still filled with a bunch of nice, playable people to talk and get along with, concluding that the afterlife wasn't such a bad place as Charlie envisioned. Though if there was someone who would agree with Charlie about the afterlife, that would be Tenshi Hinanawi as they feel that being in the mortal world (or in the Pantheon, being in a mortal-like setting) feels more exciting and accessible for them. Regardless, Tenshi's friendship with Charlie means that she would easily get along with Anne-Marie as well and the orphan girl finds the celestial's nature of wanting to be seen as and feel "divine" as pretty wondrous and fun to look at. Despite Charlie and Tenshi's feelings for Heaven, Anne-Marie affirms that Heavenly realms and mortal places are equally as exciting for him to travel.
  • While Don Bluth, himself an ascended creator, is very open and welcoming towards all of the characters he helped to envision and bring to life with his creativity, he admits that Anne-Marie is the hardest one to approach and talk to. The orphan girl sometimes wonders and tries to find out why Bluth is so elusive and reclusive in directly approaching her and she finds no success in that, which leaves her upset and a little annoyed. That said, there are a few, including Charlie, who knows why Bluth finds it hard to look at Anne-Marie, he based her overall appearance and mannerisms on someone he used to work and collaborate with who unfortunately passed at a very young age. Thinking about it is enough for Bluth to get very emotional very quickly. Even so, he admits that he shouldn't use that as an excuse to avoid Anne-Marie repeatedly and he would eventually meet with the girl at one point. Fortunately, the two managed to get along well and although it was hard for Bluth to manage, he would affirm that Anne-Marie is someone who would always inspire him and that he will eagerly anticipate that she lives a happy life, words that got the girl to be more motivated and hopeful about her future in the Pantheon.
"Then goodbye, Charlie. I love you."

  • Heralds: Laraine and Bennington Austin Cotwell III (his parents)
  • Allies: Yoshi, The Three Stooges, Tom and Jerry, Kazuma Kiryu, Yotsuba Koiwai, Teletubbies, Nintendogs, Goro Majima

  • On Good Terms With: The House of Family and Relatives
  • Annoys: The House of Crime and Transgressions
  • One would think that babies are completely defenceless and need to be checked closely to ensure their safety. In the case of Baby Bink, it's a different, wacky story. Coming from a rich Chicago family, he was kidnapped by a trio of burglars who wanted Bink's fortune, but the baby proved to be a much bigger and annoying challenge than the thieves were ever prepared for. Whenever the crooks tried to keep Baby Bink ahold, he would end up strolling off to one of Chicago and then the other, prompting a series of comical and failed attempts of the thieves to recapture him. Eventually, the thieves were caught and Baby Bink was reunited with his parents.
  • Baby Bink's last known action was laughing to himself while looking at a book called Baby's Trip to China. Whether he made a trip there with his parents has never been confirmed, though some believe that this may be the reason Baby Bink entered the Pantheon. That said, the first reported signs of him were of the baby simply crawling around the streets of the House of Commerce. He has reunited with his parents again, though, for the baby, he's going to be having... a very long day out, several times.
  • Baby Bink's full name is Bennington Austin Cotwell IV. Most Pantheonic residents find the name to be too long, fancy and tacky and admitted that he's probably better off with his nickname. All that elicits is a giggle from Baby Bink himself, knowing that he's probably right, but it doesn't make it any less funny on his part.
  • Has a rather notorious reputation, which is surprising for an infant. He's usually seen without his parents and wandering off elsewhere. Sitting in the middle of the jungles of the House of Beasts and Fauna, crawling in the rich-laden metropolis of the House of Commerce, diligently looking at statues in the House of Heroism, and trying to play with children in the House of Childhood and Adolescence, Baby Bink became famous for being at different places most of the time. Despite his parents being worried, they're given some sort of relief in that there's always good company surrounding him.
    • That said, he's never been reported to have been wandering close to areas such as the Houses of Villainy, Undead and Phasmata, Hatred and Rancor and Betrayal and Treachery. Given the very numerous evil deities there, many have tried to make sure Baby Bink never ever enters those places. Whether they were successful or Baby Bink is simply too wise to know of the dangers of those places is up for anyone's guess.
  • He's rarely, if, ever seen crying and he's always smiling and optimistic about his routine. Additionally, he never shows any sort of fear or concern regard situations that would make toughened men remotely cautious. Remarkably enough, he's listed as among being the Pantheon's bravest deities, which leaves a lot baffled at how such an ordinary baby gets that sort of reputation. Alas, there are some who aren't happy about it, given the situations Baby Bink goes through.
  • Several deities have taken up to babysitting Baby Bink at some point when his parents often have to take business meetings, though they do take him with them on holiday vacations. Each babysitter has had its own fair share of experiences.
    • The Three Stooges tried to prepare themselves in managing a baby. Instead, they never expected the sort of chaos they were getting into by simply babysitting Baby Bink. Initially, the Stooges would be doing a good job, and then suddenly, Baby Bink is at the streets. In an instant panic, the Stooges rush outside, only to see the baby be in ridiculously bizarre situations like hanging in the edge of a construction tower or being inside of a factory. Still, even if they keep messing up on trying to secure Baby Bink, they have done their damn best to ensure he isn't harmed.
    • Tom and Jerry also took to babysitting Baby Bink, given that they've done a similar job beforehand. Like the Three Stooges beforehand, they were caught by surprise on how quickly Baby Bink suddenly vanishes and ends up in perilous locations. Cue Tom and Jerry getting themselves into brutal Slapstick just to keep Baby Bink out of harm. At least Tom and Jerry are better babysitters than Jeannie if that's one compensation and that Baby Bink doesn't suddenly defy the laws of gravity, unlike the other baby.
    • Yoshi, however, actually managed to keep Baby Bink safe and secure when he decided to take a try in looking after him. It helped that he kept the baby perched onto his saddle. But even then, Yoshi had a lot of difficulties trying to look after Baby Bink, especially after he suddenly wandered off to the House of Beasts and Fauna and ended up wanting to play with some of the primates. All that said, Yoshi did manage to return Baby Bink back to his residents before his parents could. One problem though; Yoshi made a promise he'll come back to visit him. Hopefully, the shenanigans wouldn't be bigger...
  • His parents have made good relations with Kazuma Kiryu, and Kiryu himself has taken to taking care of Baby Bink at times. Even for someone as stern and headstrong as he is, even Kiryu gets into Baby Bink's troubles. Then again, crazy things are something that's a common occurrence for Kiryu. There were a few instances of criminals who tried to kidnap Baby Bink, followed by Kiryu giving them a beatdown. Baby Bink found the whole commotion hilarious.
  • At some point, Goro Majima kidnapped Baby Bink in an attempt to force Kiryu into a fight. Even after kidnapping him, Majima treated him well and even took babysitting lessons to keep check of him. And no, Baby Bink wasn't fazed when Kiryu came in, angry and starting a tough fight against Majima. All that said, nothing malicious occurred between the two and Kiryu expressed some surprise when Majima revealed that he was also trying to take care of the baby. From there, Majima is allowed to officially babysit... if he simply asks permission from Kiryu and Baby Bink's parents.
    • While he finds looking after him very difficult, similar to almost everyone else, at least Majima can entertain Baby Bink in numerous ways. It helps with Majima being awesome after all, he admits to enjoying the time he has with Baby Bink. He also brings along his right-hand man, Nishima, only to force him to babysit alongside him. All of this makes the situation funnier to Baby Bink, but even more embarrassing to Nishima.
      • All this considered, Majima does not want to recall the time Baby Bink suddenly appeared at a ''Majima Construction'' site. Either there was a lot of fun or a lot of mayhem that occurred there. Baby Bink couldn't talk either, so there's really no one else out there who could really describe the incident.
  • Will often be taken to either the Hall of Canines or the Hall of Gaming Genres to play with a selection of dogs. Many deities suggested the parents take Baby Bink to either of those places as they said he would love dogs, but also because they want to assure he's given some sort of active occupation. That still doesn't stop Baby Bink from crawling out and having fun elsewhere.
  • Is pretty well-known for having fun with a gorilla in a zoo. As a result, he quickly became friends with Donkey Kong when they first met, with DK even allowing Baby Bink to eat from his own banana hoard. Additionally, DK has also made it clear that whoever threatens Baby Bink is an enemy to him. Due to being an infant, DK is understandably nervous about Baby Bink being in jungles, though he'll have him in his clutches whenever he goes vine swinging.
  • There's apparently a book in the works known as Baby's Pantheonic Carnival. While it'll take some time before it's published, Baby Bink is rather eager to get his hands on the book. According to word of mouth, the only beings who are aware of said book's progress and date of publication in the future are the upper-ups of the House of Knowledge.

  • Illyasviel von Einzbern is the child of Kiritsugu Emiya and Irisviel von Einzbern, born as an experiment by the Einzbern family to see if homunculi can bear children like a human and Irisviel accepts since she wanted a child. Illya was uninvolved during the Fourth Fuyuki Holy Grail War but she did participate in the fifth one once she heard about the existence of Shirou Emiya. After her parents left her without no one to care for her but her maids Sella and Leysritt, Illyasviel underwent painful preparations for the upcoming Grail War and it's not helped that the Black Grail taunts her and lies to her that her father killed her mother and left Illya because he doesn't care for her. By the time she has summoned Berserker, Illya had become a troubled and cold-hearted child and became resentful of Shirou yet also attached to him, demanding him real answers regarding her father. In two timelines, Shirou was able to reach out to her and gave her the kind treatment she had lacked in her life with one letting her live a normal life until the end of her short lifespan and one sacrificing herself to help Shirou defeat Sakura and bring her back to normal. But one timeline has her life cut short by Gilgamesh in order to power the Black Grail for his own ends of finding the worthy into his new world. With the merging of timelines caused by Rin, Illya had gained all memories of each of them.
  • Illya ascended when the Court of the Gods were reviewing her performance during the 5th Holy Grail War and were impressed by her skillful control over Berserker. However, Illya was surprised that said Berserker, Hercules in the realm of the Pantheon, has the ability to turn off the Madness Enchantment and thus become more lucid. But because he's such a fun Big Brother Mentor regardless, Illya treats it as a welcome change.
  • Shirou was one of the first deities to greet her in and one of the first things she did to him back is to run up and hug him. They didn't have a good footing back then but once she realized he is unaware of why her parents left her, she started to become nice to him; also you may be forgiven if you think Shirou is the older sibling since Illya is actually two years older despite looking and acting a lot younger. Taiga is also glad to see her star student of the Taiga Dojo back and while Illya also questions Taiga's childishness and eccentricities, she nonetheless finds her a fun presence. And of course, Illyasviel finally ran into her parents on one walk and she yelled at them for abandoning her and then broke down crying because she did a lot of things that she regretted. Kiritsugu and Irisviel replied by crouching down next to her, hugging her and apologizing profusely. After some time has passed, they all then both went to the House of Pantheon/{{Nature}} to go looking for chestnuts like Kiritsugu promised which later prompts Illya to get them to meet Shirou.
    • Illya's relationships with Saber, Rin, and Sakura are okay at best and vitriolic at worst. Saber at first couldn't believe Illya is Irisiviel's daughter (because she didn't bother to ask her) but once they got to know each other, they got along pretty well and Sakura also becomes okay with Illya who plays nicely to her as well when she heard about her situation with the Matous. Rin barely wins Illya over, because they still haven't settled that "bedsheet incident" a while back but otherwise they have some civil conversations.
    • Illyasviel had met her magical girl counterpart before alongside the latter's versions of Shirou, Rin, Magical Ruby, and Luvia, but unfortunately the interaction between the two Illyas was mostly offscreen, which prompts some to speculate that their first meeting is along the lines of this scene, with a little hostility from the older Illya and frightening from the younger ones. Either way, their current relationship seems more cordial but retained some sense of contention. As for Chloe & Miyu, Illya likes Chloe but sees her as a literal perversion of herself and often puts her in miserable situations for causing trouble which Chloe is salty at but Illya is more merciful towards Miyu, especially when she heard of the latter's situation with her family and being another alternate universe counterpart of hers with Miyu likewise finds the older Illya scary at first but later on sees that she's not at all bad all the time.
    • It's very obvious that Illya does not like Gilgamesh and Avenger since the former killed her and took her heart to power the Holy Grail in one timeline and the latter taunted her and lied to her about what actually happened to her parents. Gilgamesh sees her both as another mongrel and a means to an end (less so as his Caster self) and Avenger couldn't care less about her lately, though he won't mind mentally torturing her again for kicks.
    • Illya also began to hate Kirei Kotomine and Zouken Matou for their parts in the Fifth Holy Grail War and even more so when she found out about how they manipulated Shirou and the other girls for their own ends, prompting her to consider very painful ways of torturing them. Kotomine also sees her as a means to end of seeing the world end and finds her painful past admirable (not a generous compliment) while Zouken sees her as a window to Justeaze, who chastised him for losing sight of his original goal of a utopia that eliminates hatred and suffering entirely that he shared with her.
    • Ritsuka Fujimaru got acquainted with her via his contract with Sitonai, who along with two other goddesses Freya and Louhi possess her to become one singular Servant who helped Ritsuka through the second Lostbelt and one of Shuten-douji's latest schemes. Illya has vague memories of seeing Ritsuka and being possessed, but if it means having more chances to do good then she'll gladly let herself host three goddesses to help him. He also pre-warned her about Goetia, who threatened Earth's history to "save" humanity which Illya accepts, seeing Goetia's motivations as unfounded.
    • Through Hercules, Illya got acquainted with his fellow Greek heroes Achilles, Atalante, and Chiron. They started to see why Herc has a reason to keep on fighting nobly in spite of his Madness Enhancement and welcomes her for a change; Atalante likes her since she's technically still a child and hopes she's isn't Beyond Redemption unlike Assassin of Black and Chiron hopes to teach her properly on whatever she's curious about.
  • The other gods go out of their way to avoid Illya because while she has made it perfectly clear to the other deities that Berserker will never attack unless Illya tells him to (mostly because she doesn't want to accidentally hurt someone she cares about), they're still nervous because of his name and the typical personality that is associated with it. Strangely enough, Asura and Hibiki Tachibana sympathise with Illya because they know what it's like to hurt someone you care about while you're not in control of your actions.
  • Illya sympathises with Haruka Kotoura because she knows what it's like to feel abandoned by her family. She also knows what it's like to find out her parents deeply regretted their actions. Ditto with Hilda, and Illya calls her mother unworthy of taking care of her which is something Hilda is okay with. Illya can see where Mordred is coming from and finds her world's Morgan le Fay to be horrible but when it comes to disputes and also fights, she'll always side with Saber which makes Mordred grumble in frustration.
  • Ika Musume was impressed by Illya's methods of forcing others to be her servant, you either hold them captive and threaten to hurt their friends or form an emotional bond with them; Ika prefers the first method the best. Illya meanwhile, barely notices Ika there and assumes it's the wind.
  • Illya actively opposes Father because, as a possible vessel for the Holy Grail, she doesn't want him to create an object that effectively does the same thing. Her investigation into Father's plans led her into a fight between Lust and Greed. While Lust retreated, Greed, who has issues with his old man and with telling lies, proceeded to tell her everything. Having earned her trust that day, they've occasionally hung out since then. He considers her a good-natured change of pace compared to the other homunculi in his family (as well as hers once she told him a little about them), while she finds his honesty refreshing (even though he tends to be more careful what he says when she's got Hercules summoned, he still makes it a point not to lie to her).
    • Illya finds Father's once-herald Dante even more despicable, given that in Dante's timeline of that same world the homunculi were actually incomplete revived humans, most of whom she didn't even create but all of whom would be used for her selfish ends.
  • One day Illya caught Hercules at the tail end of an uneasy conversation with Princess Diana/Wonder Woman and, curious, asked him about it once Diana was gone. She then received his confession of the terrible things he'd done to Diana and her people in the superheroine's universe. Though surprised, she didn't get mad at him like he thought she would because she instantly figured out that Hera's curses of madness upon Hercules had somehow caused this to happen. Curious as to why Hera's curse would make him power-hungry and evil in the DC Universe instead of simmering within him and bursting out in a fit of uncontrolled rage, as usual, Illya and her Berserker went to the House of Knowledge to do some research as well as started taking a closer look at his abilities. So far they managed to figure out that fighting under Madness Enhancement helps him work Hera's madness out of his system.
    • When Herc told her that Hera helped create the Themiscyran Amazons and probably doesn't realize her fault in this matter, she realized it would be best not to tell either Hera or Wonder Woman about it until they fully figure out what's going on so they don't get the two upset — either at him or at each other.
  • Whenever she has a chat with Greed while Hercules is summoned and follows that up with another chat where he isn't, Greed will usually have some insight about the previous conversation which he didn't have before. Normally she would chalk that up to her Berserker being intimidating, but Greed only exercises extra caution around him, he doesn't tell lies, and his follow-up comments often please Illya so it would make no sense to hide them the first time around. That, and she's heard that Hercules in his normal state is a frequent patron of Greed's latest bar, Stray Dog. So she's already figured out what's really going on: Herc stands there being scary while the three of them are together, but covertly pitches in his thoughts at Greed's bar, and Greed passes along the insight he gets out of it next time she meets with him. She makes it a point to be nice to Hercules in the aftermath of the second chats as a way of cleverly thanking him while letting him think his secret is still clear until such a time comes when Greed himself catches on.
  • Illya has been confused with a former member of the former Hall of Children, Illyana Rasputin, in large part due to their similar-starting names. Both have gotten annoyed with the mix-up, so Illyana doesn't visit often after being moved to the House of Emotion's Hall of Sadness. Besides that, the two get along okay and there's no ill will between them. She does share Illyana's disgust with Dr. Gero, though considering the old man practiced mad science on a couple of teenagers to turn them into killing machines, it should come as no surprise the entire House of Childhood and Adolescence hates his guts.
  • Speaking of the Hall of Sadness, Avatar Korra was recently moved there to get her own seat separate from Touta Konoe. When Asami Sato held a party to celebrate, Greed got an invite and took one for Illya. She met up with Hercules and it turned out he had an invitation too. At the party, noting how comfortable Illya and Hercules were with each other, Greed was surprised but glad to see that she apparently had a real friend other than Berserker, only for Hercules to give a curious reply about being the "closest thing to a monster" she knows. Olivier Armstrong's suspicions and Toph Beifong's confirmation that he told no lie allowed Edward Elric to deduce that Hercules and Berserker were one and the same.
    • Upon Greed's reaction of shock that Hercules had tricked him for such a long time, Illya finally revealed to Hercules that she'd long figured his plan out, shocking the demigod and turning the laugh at his expense. Illya then demonstrated the Mad Enhancement and spent several minutes explaining what she could about the Holy Grail Wars and the concept of Servants. Korra and Touta both decided they wanted to spar with Berserker in the future.
    • Illya also has acquainted herself with them through him. Having a mutual friend in Hilda, she found a footing with Asami regarding their relationship with their respective parents and making up to them eventually though Asami's dad sacrificed himself soon after. Korra and Touta are amazed that she is able to keep Herc on a leash and Edward is both amazed that homunculus like her is able to live long enough (no thanks to Shirou in one timeline) and glad that there is another ally to help him in opposing Father.
  • The other gods find it odd that Illya loves Shirou but they're smart enough to know that they shouldn't tell her that Shirou's never going to notice her because Illya has a lot of imaginative ways to torture others such as lopping off all your limbs, decapitating you and cursing your head so you can't die or lose consciousness unless the head is destroyed. That said, there are a few who actually think she has a chance of getting his attention, with Greed being among them.
    • As he is a master in Cold-Blooded Torture, Asdrubael Vect verily unsettles Illya a lot which says a lot about him and it doesn't help that he has a creepy interest in Sakura and her own suffering. Asdrubael Vect in turn sees Illya the same as Sakura; her past is a spectacle enough to entertain Slaanesh.
  • Haruto Soma and Mai Takatsukasa are two people Illya hadn't imagine herself meeting until now, with Haruto finding her to be reminiscent of Koyomi and even was saddened by her backstory and Mai reminds Illya of her mother Irisviel being a vessel of the Holy Grail since Mai is also the holder of the Golden Fruit which is just like the Grail and it helps that Mai is good with kids. Both of them warned the threat of Sou Fueki, who did all of his evil actions just to revive his daughter who is indeed Koyomi which she accepts, seeing the tragedy of his motivations as saddening; Fueki himself sees a lot of Koyomi in Illya, making him even more determined to bring her back.
  • Illya found an unlikely ally in Gertrud Barkhorn, not only due to sharing a voice and being German in a way but also because the two of them only hurt others if they get between them and their crushes; Gertrud still thinks Illya needs to dial back her gore-y methods. Like her, Elize Lutus also has a reduced lifespan caused by Teepo, a Booster draining it not unlike Illya being a homunculus who usually have very short lifespans; Elize was a little scared of Illya at first, but once she hanged out with her and Berserker she realized that they are quite fun once she got to know them.
  • Initially starting out as an Enfante Terrible at the start of Shirou's story, Illyasviel got acquainted with others that are similar like Sora Shuin'in and Mandy. She met Sora while she's playing around fallen leaves with Berserker and they both sensed bad auras from each other right away, so a fight ensued which ended in a draw. They later talked it out and realized they had more common ground than they think (a Creepy Child who has gone through painful pasts, getting more kinder through newfound connections, faking cuteness to get what they want) and decided to keep in touch with each other; Illya even offered to slaughter Professor Akaba for him but Sora luckily convinced her out of it.
    • Mandy is a little irked that Illya has largely dropped her ruthless methods but is otherwise fine with her presence while Illya thinks Mandy is being a stuck-up. Of course, it's also not saying much when she also dislike the creepy Hansel & Gretel and Rhoda Penmark and is trying to stop herself from torturing them bloodily; the twins couldn't care less about Illya and Rhoda is actually quite scared of what Illya can cook up for her torture and is greatly distancing herself from Illya's and Berserker's sight.
    • On that note, the rest of the House of Family is not too keen on Illya joining them since she was really ruthless, cold, and vicious back when she was a minor villain. Illya was not surprised at their opinion but she is rather disappointed and sad that her actions can cost such a reputation.
  • Aiding Shirou and Ritsuka might be one step into doing good for real, but her actions against the former still warrant some criticism and Illya is doing her best to be better than that. Nagato approached her one day and offered her some protection and backup support to benefit her and her allies and also a chance for atonement; seeing as Nagato has finally turned good for real as well, Illya accepts his help and Berserker too after she told him to stand down a few times. By extension, she has also got into contact with Nagato's own allies, including but not limited to Darth Vader, Golbez, Vlad von Carstein, Captain Cold, and Mr. Freeze though she is keeping watch on the latter four in case they get out of hand.
  • Along with her magical girl counterpart, Illya got in contact with the new Broly as like her, he stands out among his own race (Saiyans for him, homunculi for her) and they both share his disdain against the old Broly. Broly also becomes a berserker when he loses control, not unlike Hercules in Madness Enhancement which is a win in her book.
  • "Get them, Berserker!"

  • Terrence McGinnis is a teenager who resided in a futuristic Gotham City, decades after the Batman had disappeared from the presence of the city. Growing up, Terry was a delinquent, often butting against his father and defying general school authority whilst trying to make his presence known, with a few successes including his younger brother Matt and a girlfriend, Dana Tan. One particular day, Terry and Dana were suddenly attacked by a group of gangsters known as The Jokerz who took inspiration from the Clown Prince of Crime. Following a chase that led them to Wayne Manor, Terry met a decrepit Bruce Wayne, alongside discovering his hidden identity of Batman years ago, though they started off on poor terms. Later on, Terry discovered that his father was murdered, and despite evidence incriminating The Jokerz, he learned that the culprit was carried out under the orders of corrupt business mogul, Derek Powers of Wayne-Powers Enterprises. Swearing justice and frustrated by a lack of cooperation, Terry took it upon his own hands to steal the latest Batsuit and battle against his father's killer. From that day on, the Batman was reborn for the future, and also began Derek's descent into the supervillain, Blight. Outside of Derek, Terry would learn and train under Bruce's instructions and come to fight against many criminals and supervillains, old and new, in a wholly different Gotham City, which would eventually pay off with Terry becoming the successor to the Batman mantle and giving Bruce Wayne a sense of closure.
  • Terry's ascension into the Pantheon coincided with a shocking revelation that his father wasn't actually Warren. As it turns out, there was an experiment conducted by Amanda Waller of A.R.G.U.S. which was designated to be Project: Batman Beyond, with the aim to create an adequate successor to Batman himself via his DNA and transfer this to Warren's reproductive DNA. As a result, and unbeknownst to either of them, Terry McGinnis is the son of Bruce Wayne, and he ends up being the successor to Batman, figuratively and literally. Terry also learned about his conception sometime after he had learned that he was part of the Pantheon, and was surprised to discover that the new realm mainly accounted for a version of his world that he was unfamiliar with. As far as he knew, he was from a possible future and that he had his own story to tell, compared to Bruce's. Either way, Terry signaled his presence by finding a Bat-Signal and lighting it up in red lights. It helped in a sense as it alerted and terrified a nearby group of gangsters who were about to commit a robbery, which Terry quickly took care of, and these collections of events were soon to catch Bruce's attention anytime soon. Terry's since felt that the Pantheon is going to be a very different experience compared to his own world, though he's making sure to make a lasting impression regardless.
  • The Pantheon was in a state of surprise to discover that there were now two Batman in the realms and that both of them have been keeping an eye out on crime activities and worldly threats, the former especially in regards to the House of Crime and Transgressions. That said, while Bruce and Terry have a similar brand of justice to uphold as well as a fearsome, yet revered reputation to manage, the two are actually very different from one another. For one, Terry's suit was more technological and came with several in-built features that have happened to provide Terry with items and gadgets that he uses in his battles against crime as well as augmented strength and durability. Of course, there's also the punchy color scheme of black with a sharp red Bat Logo, but the biggest differentiation comes from their personalities and occupations. Bruce in the Pantheon is a billionaire businessman in public and a quiet, brooding, and stoic vigilante as Batman whilst also being willing to be unforgiving so long as he can be non-lethal. Terry, on the other hand, is a teenager and a social, talkative, and outgoing person, both in public and as Batman, even having a sardonic sense of humor to accompany him along the way. Regardless, these differences don't matter too much in their relationship as Bruce has come to see Terry as the best successor he has in a long time and Terry himself is proud to see Bruce as a father figure to him.
  • Of course, being the successor to The Dark Knight meant there was a lot of baggage to deal with on top of taking up a mantle that had since become revered and feared throughout Gotham City. In Terry's case, Batman had become a myth since and he had to deal with a massive increase in crime as well, and that's not getting into having to prove himself as a worthy successor to an individual who dedicated his entire life in fighting crime, corruption, and injustice. This background information, while distinct, was also similar to what Izuku Midoriya had to go through when applying for the U.A. Academy to become a superhero after being directly chosen to inherit the powers of his heroic inspiration, All Might. Izuku, having come to respect both Batman and Superman during his tenure in the Pantheon, was surprised to see a second person carry on with the former's title and expressed curiosity about the figure, which led to him meeting Terry. They both bonded over their desires to be worthy successors and they were also impressed by each other being intellectually gifted and their willingness to help others in times of strife. That said, Terry has proven his worth whereas Midoriya is still midway in his heroic career, though Terry has been quite outspoken in his support for Midoriya and stating that he will be the inheritor that All Might would have wanted.
    • On that matter, Terry got to learn about Superman's son, Jon Kent, and the two quickly related to one another due to their similar experiences of having to uphold a grand legacy when it came to superheroics as well as the insecurities that came with them having a sort of reputation to uphold at a rather precocious age. The fact that both were the biological sons of Batman and Superman was also a hammering point when it came to legacies, though from what they have displayed, Terry was quick to see Jon as a worthy successor to the Man of Steel, citing his determined and altruistic nature as well as sharing a similar knack of being rebellious at times. Jon was surprised to learn that in a potential future, Terry would end up being mentored by Damian, which meant that, by some degree, Jon saw him as a surrogate older brother of sorts. Both heroes have seen been making sure of supporting and aiding one another and are committed to preserving the legacies of their predecessors.
  • It comes as no surprise that Terry has nothing but utmost appreciation for superheroes and was excited that the Pantheon would be an invitation to many that he didn't know existed. With him being friends with Midoriya respecting All Might, Terry made contact with other U.A. students, such as Ochaco Uraraka, Tenya Iida, and Shoto Todoroki, and quickly gained each others' respect with how much effort they trying to put into regarding their hero work. On a more personal note, Terry's family has to cope with living in middle-class conditions (in the standards of their city and time at least), so Terry can quickly understand Uraraka's goal of trying to earn enough to support her family and was open to helping her out, he's appreciative of Iida's leadership effort and is willing to even learn from him on how to develop some leadership skills, and with Todoroki, he could see why he had trouble in trying to reach up to All Might's legacy. Terry was not happy to learn that Shoto was forced into being the best hero possible due to his father, Enji, better known as the superhero called Endeavor, who pushed into abusive parenting territory in order to get Shoto to become a better hero than All Might, which Terry thought was asinine and counterproductive and learned that this was why Todoroki appeared aloof for the most part. That said, he was relieved to see that Endeavor is now trying to be a better person (and hero) than he was, though he can see why Shoto wasn't willing to forgive him just yet. At the very least, Terry wants to see the two reconcile at some point, considering he knows just how it feels when someone loses a parental figure after a fight and without forgiving them in retrospect.
    • He also came to respect the students of Academy City, provided they were enrolled in a specific school precisely because they had latent powers and were sent there in order to be taught how to use and control them, and study academics of course. He came to relate with Touma Kamijou as the two of them felt as if they had big responsibilities in trying to help others as well as having a tight social support group via friends and family... as well as having to also be burdened by academics, which tend to falter due to their secondary occupation of being heroes.
  • Because of him coming from the future, while Terry is aware of the Batfamily in general, he's not exactly familiar with them either, hence the Pantheon has been quite the learning experience for him when it comes to familiarizing himself with those who either had a working relationship or had close ties with Bruce. Most have agreed that next to Dick Grayson, Terry is the best candidate for succeeding Batman, though Dick prefers to carve out his own legacy as Nightwing and is very appreciative of Terry for being the hero Gotham needed after Bruce's sudden retirement. He does have a slight rivalry with Damian Wayne, if mainly because both happen to be Bruce's biological sons and that both had sharp contrasts with one another with Terry having been bought up in a normal household and is an ordinary teenager in his private life as well as utilizing technology whereas Damian was born and raised to be an assassin whilst retaining some anger issues throughout his life. In spite of this, Terry is open to mentoring and working with Damian, if mainly because he wants to find a way to make Batman's younger son more tempered and a better hero in the future. Finally, he keeps on good terms with Cassandra Cain, despite their vastly different upbringings and for Cassandra being one of Terry's toughest opponents to face in a match. Given his status as a ladies' man, Terry and Cassie often hang out with one another, if mainly because Terry is a supportive person and he's managed to endear Cassie with his sense of humor and wit.
    • Of all of the proteges Batman has had, Terry might be one of the most personally hated when it comes to The Joker, and for one reason; Terry was the one person who ended up killing The Joker and permanently putting an end to his reign of terror, a feat that very few can justifiably back up. The Joker was immensely furious about his defeat, and for more than one reason beyond the fact that he was to die in disgrace; The Joker, first and foremost, would have liked to be slain by Bruce Wayne and wanted him to be laughed at by The Joker's antics in comedy, which never happened. Not only was Terry the one to do the deed, but he also laughed at The Joker... for being a pathetic loser in regards to his comedy and that he was never a victim to any of the Clown Prince's schemes. Perhaps because of this, Terry gets along really well with Jason Todd, which is furthered by their shared knack of being darkly quirky when fighting their enemies in spite of Jason's own anger issues. The Joker didn't really take it well to learn that Terry was in the Pantheon, but was delighted by the idea of getting revenge at the new Batman. Already well aware of just what The Joker is capable of, Terry is making arrangements and protocols in case the Clown Prince of Crime targets him and his loved ones, though so far, he's been spending more of his energy on Bruce whilst promising that he will eventually get to attack Terry at some point.
    • While his enmity towards The Joker is mutually filled with disdain, the rest of Batman's Rogues Gallery keep their opposition towards Terry with more indifference and professionalism, primarily because he's not the Batman that they're used to seeing. Even so, Terry has simultaneously proven himself to be more compassionate than Bruce and making attempts to reach out to his foes whilst also being willing to let enemies die if they're either too much of a threat or they've proven themselves to be irredeemable. He still somberly recalls watching Mr. Freeze's last moments and was open to meeting him again, despite the Batfamily's protests. Whilst Freeze remained a villain in the Pantheon, he tends to be at his most civil with Terry due to the latter's genuine attempts to aid his mental and emotional well-being and has promised that he'll try to find a way to restore Mr. Freeze's wife, Nora, back to her normal self. The act itself seemed to be seen as commendable, given how Terry was able to befriend a supervillain by trying to appeal to his humanity when no one else would, though Batman remains cautious given his experiences of fighting against Mr. Freeze due to the latter's rage and anguish over being denied a normal life with his wife.
    • Unlike the rest of the Batfamily, excluding Bruce himself, Terry has a more conflicting opinion towards Talia al' Ghul, given that in the brief time that they met, Talia was reasonable and even willing to help Terry out, though, in turn, Terry also has a far more negative viewpoint towards her father, Ra's, given that he was willing to hijack her body and take over her consciousness, effectively killing Talia's consciousness. The Pantheon was a rather tippy experience in that matter, as Ra's was the more (ostensibly) honorable one whereas Talia was more ruthless, though still retained her affection for Bruce. Talia, in general, sees Terry not only as a threat but also as inferior towards her son with Batman, Damian and personally wishes to see her son best Terry one day so that she could prove herself right, though Terry would rather try to convince Talia to move past her allegiance with Ra's and become a better person. Surprisingly, he's done a better job about this than Bruce, but it's still not good enough as Talia prioritizes her loyalty to her father above all else, something that the Tomorrow Knight is working on to beat one day.
  • One of Terry's closest allies in the Pantheon turned out to be Spider-Man, whom he met during one of his treks in the House of Heroism. While they kept their relationship professional if, on good terms, they only ended knowing each other's identities when Spider-Man was forced into battle against Derek Powers when the latter tried to conduct a nuclear waste spreading in the House of Jobs and Profession whilst using the opportunity to steal whatever profits he could in the attack. Once the web-slinger was revealed to be Peter Parker after getting assistance from Batman, the latter decided to reveal his identity as McGinnis to the weary Parker after seeing that they were really around the same age as one another. As a result, the two were interested in learning more about one another and decided to formally establish a good friendship with each other. They were also surprised to see how both Peter and Terry have had to deal with leading a double life, which burdened them greatly in their personal identities as well as their loved ones and for having similar enemies. This furthered the two of them to affirm that they've got each others' backs and are more than willing to help if they ever need it.
  • Terry expressed some curiosity upon learning of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles if mainly because in spite of their strange and bizarre concept, they were seen as heroes by many. And on a further note, the turtles have actually met with Bruce at some point, even working together at one point to defeat Ra's al Ghul and The Shredder. After being encouraged by Bruce in giving them a chance, Terry obliged and to his delight, he wasn't disappointed in the slightest. He found the Turtles to be of great company and oddly enough, they spent more time doing tricks and eating pizzas than they were fighting criminals and villains. He found himself sharing some similarities with all the turtles, but especially Leonardo as both were successors who had a lot to learn and carry when it comes to preserving a legacy. Terry has even helped the turtles in introducing them to some technological devices, gadgets, and elements, courtesy of Wayne Enterprises and hopes that they could use them to better their performances in crimefighting. At the moment, Terry has signed up on a quest to aid the turtles in a new series of events planned out by The Shredder in regards to endangering the Pantheon and he hopes that his own contributions can help his new allies say the day again.
  • Still a senior year student, Terry was given a place to attend the House of School to continue on with his study in the Pantheon. He normally wouldn't mind the place, considering the Elysium Academy is kept in top shape and hosts a number of good students to hang out with, but his job as a superhero, particularly as Batman, has made things quite difficult when it comes to commuting. Bizarrely, Terry has proven himself a capable student, though his dual life has made things problematic in the fact that his grades have suffered to a degree. Even so, Terry met a fellow student, Kim Possible, who had to balance her life between school and being an undercover spy going on missions to dismantle criminal operations. Seeing how they could relate, the two got to befriend each other and hang out in after-school timings with Terry even offering Kim some help regarding school papers and advice regarding relationships, considering he's aware of her boyfriend being Ron Stoppable. Interestingly, the two weren't initially aware of each other's secret identities until a series of coincidences revealed their second lives. Regardless, Terry trusts Kim enough to work together, which she reciprocated with respect.
  • If there was one thing that was quite well-known about Terry prior to becoming Batman, it was his days as a rebellious delinquent who had trouble integrating himself in school and having a somewhat rocky relationship with his family. It's where his sardonic sense of humor and street smarts come from, which most would concede are the two best things to have come out from his earlier days, especially considering that Terry once opted to accept a gang invitation, which led to him committing the crime of a breaking and entering, and part of Terry's motivation of becoming The Tomorrow Knight was to amend for his past criminal acts. In the Pantheon, while Terry became familiar with other delinquents, most of them turned out to not be as extreme as he was back as a teen. For one, he quickly gained an appreciation for The Curtis Gang as they possessed a strong sense of camaraderie with one another and Terry could relate with their struggles in leading a life, considering his own hardships of being a student and a superhero. He did feel upset to learn of how the gang was fractured by unfortunate events that led to the deaths of Johnny via sustained injuries whilst trying to save a group of children, and Dallas who game into despair and got killed by cops whilst trying to rob a store, though another member, Ponyboy, eventually went to write down his experiences into a narrative story. Terry continues to keep in contact with the group and help them out, though he admits that he has difficulty communicating with Dallas due to his unruly and more chaotic nature.
    • Terry also found some common ground with a girl named Dana Zane who usually owns a hole-in-the-wall bar known as VA-11 Hall-A. As it turns out, Dana was also a rebellious youth who somehow ended up losing her left arm and having a cybernetic arm installed in its place, which created a wide series of rumors as to what exactly happened. Terry usually doesn't care about it and once attended Dana's bar simply because it was playing some sort of techno-dance music, which he feels comfortable listening to. Terry simply danced for a while, which attracted Dana's attention and from there, the two talked with one another and were surprised by their similar teen phase. He refused a drink, if mainly because he knew that they would make him tipsy and that would clash with his work as a vigilante, but remained hospitable enough that he earned Dana's respect through his polite and reasonable demeanor. Dana even offered him a job as a dancer for the club, though he refused, though he's also willing to provide tertiary support for Va-11 Hall-A when a bunch of goons suddenly barged in and Terry and Dana worked together to beat them out without a scratch. While their relationship mostly remains professional, it's clear that they get along and respect each other enough to keep in contact whenever they need help.
  • When not out doing crimefighting, Terry would spend a good deal of his free time attending nightclubs with his girlfriend, Dana Tan, and doing the best he could to have a nice, tender moment after a stressful day of trying to curb crime and corruption. Despite being in a committed relationship, Terry has also been prone to attracting a crowd of girls in his presence and has even dated a few on the occasions where he and Dana break upnote . Whilst initially reluctant, Dana was able to convince Terry to take a visit to the Hall of Dance as a way to change the atmosphere of their relationship environment, and to Terry's surprise, he came to like the Hall quite a lot, though he's vouching to convince the House of Musicality to be more open in playing electronic music, or at least during nighttime. He's also additionally happy to see that Dana was willing to listen to all sorts of dance music such as μ's and 765 Pro and consider befriending their members in case they attend a meet-and-greet.
    • Much like Terry himself, Peter was also someone who unwittingly ended up attracting a large number of women into his company, which was made all the more surprising as Peter was a science nerd, in contrast to Terry being a delinquent. The second Batman got to learn about Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy from Peter during a casual conversation, which Dana also took advantage of to initiate a meetup in a nightclub. Terry was initially reluctant of meeting with Gwen, considering the tragic circumstances that befell her fate, though it turned out that they quickly eased up and had a friendly chat alongside Parker. Terry did his best to make sure neither he nor Dana mentioned Gwen's death at the hands of the Green Goblin, which helped greatly as she got to like Terry for being an upstanding and supportive man towards Dana and Mary Jane similarly reciprocated her towards him, in addition to giving him a few words of encouragement and advice to Terry regarding reassurance and support for Dana. Overall, Terry saw that Peter was able to find love with the right girls and couldn't be any more thankful towards him for that.
  • With his feud and enmity against Blight, Terry's opposition towards corrupt businessmen was a natural feeling for him, and the Pantheon more than proved this case. Considering his positive association with Spider-Man, it didn't take long for him to learn about Norman Osborn and his supervillain identity of the Green Goblin and was sure to do whatever it takes to stop him, especially considering the fact that Derek was actually open to the idea of allying with Norman. Norman saw Terry as a notable threat that he needed to neutralize given his own successful record of taking down criminals and as any sadistic chessmaster would do, he's not just made elaborate attempts on Terry's life, but also threaten his family and loved ones, which have only served to make Terry and Norman's enmity more intense. The Tomorrow Knight has also had to deal with Wilson Fisk and Mr. Negative, who were quick to respond back with hostility via him being allies with Spider-Man, though Fisk has a sense of appreciation towards McGinnis for his determination and diligence, though the latter isn't willing to reciprocate.
    • And regarding actual companies, Terry was not pleased to learn of The Corpus, who, despite having a few good-hearted members in their services, seek to sell as many weapons and tools of destruction as possible all for the sake of money and greed and are not above having to personally kill and endanger others if it means acquiring and selling off arms deals to satisfy themselves. Given Terry's experience in fighting against Blight, he's doing whatever it takes with old and new allies to make sure they don't cause any destruction in the Pantheonsolely for a quick buck. He also expresses disgust and dismay in Vought American just as much as Bruce does, considering that their aims to create superheroes are not for any altruistic reasons, but because superhumans are simply a marketable product, and Terry finds this an insulting phrase. He also doesn't like how many of their engineered superheroes only turn out to be far more vile and insidious than they seemed, which is most apparent with Black Noir, whose nature worries and creeps Terry out. He's been working with Bruce and Superman in a way to fight and neutralize Black Noir, adamant in that his psychotically sadistic and feral nature cannot be left unchecked by anyone. In contrast, Black Noir only sees Terry as a pest to crush under his heels, which only makes the Tomorrow Knight even more determined to stop him at all cost.
  • Terry's experience with fighting crime, of course, has led to him making an assortment of new enemies in the Pantheon, though he felt that this was going to happen and with Bruce's help, he had enough time to prepare for such an occupation. Two such opponents he's had a recurring time fighting against were the assassin, Bullseye, and Himiko Toga, a supervillainess with a compulsion to blood. Of the two, Terry personally fears Bullseye more, given that he's been renowned for being extremely precise with his aim at throwing and utilizing those to lethal effect and the fact that he tends to be hired by corrupt authoritative figures like Norman and Fisk aren't helping matters. He actually pities Himiko to a degree upon learning that the reason for her villainy was that she was forced to act normally and that her addiction to blood is sporadic and uncontrollable, something which didn't help with her becoming deranged. While Terry would like to help Himiko become a better person as well as find a way to better manage her bloodlust, chances of those are slim-to-none, given that Himiko is already too committed to becoming a villain, if her association with the League of Villains is any indication.
    • Having fought against a version of Superman from a universe where he and the Justice League members were instead referred to as the Justice Lords, Terry is quite wary of versions of the Man of Steel who have become cynical and ruthless, an opposite to the symbol of hope Superman represents. Unlike most members of the league, he not only feels sorry for the Regime Counterpart, but would like to talk and potentially redeem him in some way, even if Terry thinks his actions are too extreme and violent in his approach for peace. Homelander and The Plutonian were less forgiving examples with Terry clearly seeing that they were driven more by a need of attention and fame than anything else and while he pities Homelander for being surprisingly pathetic, Terry is incredibly wary of just what The Plutonian is capable of and was able to see just why Bruce tends to be paranoid about Superman at times. That said, Terry still affirms that Superman is the greatest superhero who ever livednote  and believes that the Man of Steel would never succumb to the bleakness that the other three figures had since begun to represent.
  • Terry comes from a Gotham City that had since become very industrialized with advanced technology as well as a distinct culture that forms its own identity compared to its past iteration decades ago, excluding the fact that crime is still rather rampant. If there's one thing Terry can appreciate from his version of Gotham, it's the music that tends to play in clubs, given that he'll always be attending them during free times and it also helps to have him socialize with others, be it in his homeworld or in the Pantheon. On another subject, he found a recurring partner in Adam Jensen, a SWAT police officer-turned-cyborg who went on a search for those who were responsible for nearly killing him, only to discover a darker conspiracy along the way. The fact that Adam himself came from a rather bleak world filled with mass-rioting, corruption, constant terrorism, and martial law made Terry wince at the prospect of just how bad it could get, even at its worst, Gotham's issues were mainly kept to themselves. Even then, it only propelled Terry to simply approach and work things out with Adam in regards to fighting crime and restoring justice, which helped them in becoming good friends with one another.
"Every time I put on that suit, it’s my chance to help people who are in trouble. I guess on a personal level, it’s my chance to look like a worthwhile human being again. In my eyes… no one else’s. It’s what I want, Bruce."

  • Thomas and Martha Wayne are two of the House's most notable and revered visitors and partners as Thomas dedicates a lot of his money and earnings to orphanages. The same also applies to King and Kazuma Kiryu who not just working hours in the house's local orphanage, but also look after security measures to make sure any threat is dealt with and hard. Similarly, Julis-Alexia von Riessfeld takes visitations to the orphanage, looking after nearby kids, giving them support, and taking working hours in security.
  • Gamera and Mighty Joe Young frequent this house when either on a good day or it needs help. Their past actions have earned the house's respect as Gamera and Joe are more than willing to defend children and have stopped large-scaled threats. That, and kids generally seem to enjoy two monsters' company. Asgore Dreemurr, Toriel and Rose Quartz are other fantastical beings who get along with kids and take visitation hours in their spare time.
  • A certain iteration of Captain Blackbeard also likes and gets along well with kids. However, due to his infamous reputation and the notoriety of another iteration, he is only allowed visitation hours in a very strict allocated time and is monitored closely. While annoyed, Blackbeard does the most of what he can do to have a good time.
  • When not performing his duties as a monarch, Gira Husty can bee seen helping out with house care due to his experience in being raised in an orphanage. can be seen assisting with household chores, drawing from his upbringing in an orphanage where he learned the value of responsibility and teamwork. His experiences in communal living have instilled in him a strong work ethic and a willingness to lend a helping hand wherever needed, whether it's tending to the garden, organizing communal spaces, or offering a listening ear to the children or other adult caretakers.
