Greater Gods

    Valvatorez 
Valvatorez, God of Promises (Tyrant Valvatorez, Valzy, Mr. Vampire, Mr. Weirdo, Prinny Instructor)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Valbatorez_2_7925.png
  • Greater God (Overdeity should he ever regain his Tyrant powers)
  • Symbol: His twin snake emblem
  • Theme Song: Arcadian Vampire, Unflyable Wings, Sparking (when raving about sardines), (Naked Requiem should he ever regain his Tyrant powers)
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral with lots of good leanings
  • Portfolio: Promises, Non-Bloodsucking Vampires, Sardine-based Nutrition, Ties of Camaraderie, Respected Prinny Instructors, Uplifting speeches, Noble Demons, Spirit and Fortitude, War Is Hell
  • Domains: Law, Vampires, Fear, Ambition
  • Allies: Fenrich, Artina, Monkey D. Luffy, Usalia, Adell, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Princess Luna, Rachel Alucard, Adrian Tepes, Rika Furude, Sora, Midna, Mion and Shion Sonozaki, Histoire, Axel (on a good day), Kiritsugu Emiya
  • Enemies: YHVH, Lucifer
  • Rivals: Zetta, Alucard
  • Thanks to testimony from Zetta about Valvatorez was much more powerful than he lets on, namely that he canonically is nearly equal in power to the Nipponverse big three (all greater gods residing in the house of life and death, otherness, and theatre respectively) despite his de-powered state, he was promoted to the Main House.
    • Although Fenrich, his loyal servant, was happy to see his lord move up the ranks, Fenrich is already plotting to push his lord further, stating that his lord should not be second to any god. However, Val is more concerned about upholding his duties as God of Promises than anything else.
    • Though to further these plans, Fenrich has persuaded Valvatorez to see about getting himself a spot in the Pantheon, which eventually happened.
  • Ever since his promotion, there have been some dreadful rumors being spread about him, namely one that his Tyrant state is every bit as powerful as Tyrant Overlord Baal.
    • Currently unknown if he or Flandre Scarlet is the strongest vampire in the pantheon.
  • During his spare time, Valvatorez can often be found in the House of Food proclaiming the benefits of sardines and sharing his vast knowledge on them. Most try to ignore him, though some are rather curious about his claim that sardines have allowed him to still be powerful without the need of blood.
  • Defeating Fear the Great has earned him the respect of other gods who fight against evil gods and their creations, though Valvatorez remains modest, saying that it was a joint effort by his comrades in his Hades Party and that it was to fulfill his promises. That said, Asura has invited him to join his task force to defeat Gohma Vlitra.
    • Speaking of Fear the Great, there have been rumors that YHVH was behind its creation. Regardless of whether he was behind it or not, his MO matches the God who created Fear the Great and has thus become Val's enemy.
  • Has an odd friendship with Alucard (the one from Hellsing) and Rachel Alucard. The three of them often meet to have tea, cakes, cookies and...sardines?
  • Once upon a time, a shining yellow ring appeared in front of Valvatorez and said: "VALVATOREZ OF THE NETHERWORLD. YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO INSTILL GREAT FEAR. WELCOME TO THE SINESTRO CORPS." As it turns out, Sinestro purposefully gave one of his rings to the vampire as a token of friendship and after hearing of his reputation as a fearmonger/former tyrant. Naturally, Fenrich doesn't trust Sinestro one bit and neither does Valvatorez.
  • Although Valvatorez admires that Pinkie Pie is also a strong believer in keeping promises, the two have an ongoing argument over what the last line of a planned Official "Pantheon Promise" Swear should be; Pinkie in favor of "Stick a cupcake in my eye" and Valvatorez in favor of "Stick a sardine in my eye". However, the Swear in general has yet to be approved by the rest of the Pantheon and everyone hopes that it stays that way.
    • He also gets along rather well with Fluttershy since she's helping him with the Prinnies who've redeemed themselves, though she gets a little frightened when he becomes boisterous.
    • After learning of Princess Luna's role as the Princess of the Night, Val has become good friends with her and has vowed to protect the moon for her and Fenrich's sake. While Fenrich does not want Val to be making more friends and promises, he at least (begrudgingly) respects Luna as the moon is very important to him.
  • On the subject of Prinnies, he's quick to remind them that they must not let their ascension get to their heads as they still need to fulfill their duty for them to reincarnate and will not allow any slacking.
  • Due to the canonicity of certain endings, his transformation into Tyrant is only a matter of time.
  • Due to his experience in successfully rebelling against psychotic gods, he was amongst the first to be recruited to fight in "The Pantheonic Rebellion". He plans to take part in the "Deep Strike" front and by then, his Tyrant state will have awakened.
  • After regaining his Tyrant status, he recently became the head Vampire Lord of "The Children of the Night", a rather informal group consisting of the most powerful vampires in the pantheon. In fact, being the strongest is the condition for entering, which has managed to humilate Dracula.
    • The Belmont family considers him a vampire not worth hunting due to a combination of actually being harmless and friendly when off the clock and due to him being massively off the charts in terms of raw power, even dwarfing the dreaded Gabriel Belmont in terms of power.
  • Also gets along well with Sora, due to him also being a strong believer in keeping promises, as well as ties of camaraderie.
  • Though not by his choice, has been nominated for largest ham ever.
  • Upon seeing the ways that Popeye and Soda Popinski gain power from their respective favorite food and drink, Valvatorez has suggested to them that they start eating sardines instead, and become even more powerful. Neither have taken him up on that.
  • War and war mongers are amongst the fastest ways to make him truly angry. As such, the Tyrant is not fond of the GUAC in general. This shared hatred of war earned the respect and camaraderie of Kiritsugu Emiya.
  • Valvatorez also has a seat in the Main House.

Intermediate Gods

    Abadar 
Abadar, God of Favoring the Law over Money (Master of the First Vault, The Gold-FistedJudge of the Gods, God of Walls and Ditches)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abadar.png
  • Intermediate/Greater God
  • Symbol: A golden key
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Domains: Earth, Law, Nobility, Protection, Travel
  • Portfolio: Keeper of the First Vault, By-the-Book God, Honest Corporate Executive, Always Keeps his Word, Rules Lawyer, Utopia Justifies the Means
  • Herald: The Lawgiver
  • Allies: Cayden Calien, Erastil, The Judge, Eiki Shiki, Varric Tethras, Anna, Most good and neutral-aligned members of the House of Commerce
  • Rivals: Asmodeus, Judge Dredd
  • Enemies: Cyth V'sug, Seto Kaiba, Mr. Burns, Looten Plunder
  • Opposes: Tywin Lannister, Cersei Lannister, YHVH, Wario
  • Opposed by: Vidiri
  • Annoyed by: Calistria
  • There is a god located in the House of Justice who abides entirely with the law. Sure he also looks after merchants and the wealthy, but he regards following the rules above all other endeavors. Such is the way of Abadar, Master of the First Vault and sixth Golarion deity in the Pantheon.
    • Is most famous for holding the First Vault, one of the largest collections of items in the Multiverse. It is said to contain a replica of every single item known. Speedy deities such as the Flash have taken up the challenge to prove it, but his domain has proven to be too vast for even him to search.
    • As usual, he maintains reasonable diplomatic ties with all in the Pantheon. He enjoys Shelyn's company as well as Erastil to a lesser extent (he has yet to strike a balance to his love of cities and the Stag God's preference to the wilderness). Relations with other Golarion neighbors are a bit more precarious. He is one of the few gods capable of matching Asmodeus in being a Rules Lawyer, disapproving of the archdevil's dishonest deals. While he appreciate's Cayden's followers for protecting cities, he wishes them to be more civil. That with Calistra remains his most strained relationship in the Pantheon, with her penchant for revenge outside the rule of law.
  • He may be the God of Law in Golarion, but Judge Dredd was quick to remind him that in the Pantheon HE is the law. Abadar is not a fan of Dredd's harsher uses of the law, believing it causes dissent among civilians. He would prefer law enforcement that respects the city's inhabitants. as much as the other way around, depending on rules to give everyone a fair shot at trial.
  • Was rather disappointed with the current guardians of the House of Commerce. He may be a god of wealth, but he despises corruption above all else. While he disdains Kaiba's disregard of the rules, he is especially appalled by Mr. Burn's drive for money at the expense of others. He does hope to have better representatives in that House.
    • Upon a second inspection, he saw great potential in many of its inhabitants. He has striven to maintain relations with most involved in that house. He hopes to influence the place to it's true nature of creating wealth and maintaining settlements.
    • Second on the list is probably Looten Plunder for representing the worst aspects of corrupt corporations. He may find the actions of Captain Planet excessive, but he will always side with the nature god against his greatest foe.
  • Has repeatedly warned his followers not to be driven by Greed, pointing to Wario as one of the top reasons followers lose his favor. The scoundrel considers all who follow that god to be losers. He can't understand how anyone would hold back their abilities to gain some money.
  • Respects the Judge's decisions in court. It helps that he has a healthy list of lawyers that make sure the law is fair to all. He does wish that there wasn't such a divide between good and evil aligned attorneys.
  • Tywin thought it would be a good idea to give him a little bribe money to get in his good graces. That only resulted in getting blacklisted from his temple and a petition to boycott Tywin's services with a growing number of followers doing just that. His opinion on the former ruler was already sour due to the what he saw was an unnecessary massacre. All too familiar to being rejected, Tywin is comfortable with playing the long game to strike back.
  • Is not much of a fan of Cersei either. He finds her decision making to be rather bizarre, too caught up in perry revenge over thinking in the long term of things.
  • His promotion of the city life did not sit well with those in the House of Nature. This is especially true for Vidiri, who has taken measures to throw extreme weather conditions on his temple. Abadar sees it as a challenge, as any building should match the best Mother Nature has to offer.
  • Was delighted at first at the prospect of an entire faction dedicated to Law. He felt the classic Good and Evil axis to be antiquated. When he found out who was leading the group, Abadar was quickly turned off. He didn't see YHVH as someone who looked out for humanity, but looking out for his own self-interest. But he didn't lose out hope. He likes what Eiki brings to the table and would tolerate the GUAL if she took over.
  • The Weapon of Choice for many of his followers is the crossbow. It came to his attention that some people have been able to make Automatic Crossbows, more advanced than the ones he's used to. As such he struck a deal with Varric to place stock in his weaponry in exchange for a discount for his followers. Varric agreed... if Abadar did more selfless acts to those in need. Otherwise, the dwarf has taken a liking to the god.
  • Has his suspicions on the true nature of Anna the shop keeper. Still, he is rather impressed with her dealings with her clients.

    Asmodeus 
Asmodeus, Divine Master of Loophole Abuse (The Archfiend, Dark Prince, The First, God-Fiend, King of Hell, Lord of Darkness. Lord of Hell, Lord of the Pit, Master of Witches, Prince of Darkness, Prince of Devils, Prince of Hell, Prince of Law, Ruler of Hell)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/281px-asmodeus_5131.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A pentagram known specifically as the Archstar.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Affably Evil, Big Red Devil, Light Mace as his signature weapon, Cool Chair, Deal with the Devil, Dystopia Justifies the Means, Even Evil Has Standards, Hates Free Will, God of Evil, Horned Humanoid, Legions of Hell, Rules Lawyer, Satanic Archetype, Visionary Villain, Well-Intentioned Extremist
  • Domains: Evil, Fire, Law, Magic, Trickery
  • Herald: Basileus
  • Allies: The Godhand, Calypso, Agatha Trunchbull, Calvin J. Candie and Stephen, Doctor Faustus (usually)
  • Rivals: Melkor, YHVH, Vegeta
  • Enemies: Lucifer (SMT), The Beast, Samuel, Morrigan and Lilith, Drizzt Do'Urden,
  • Opposed by: Cayden Cailean, Rosemary Woodhouse
  • One of the oldest deities in the Pathfinder universe, Adsodeus has gotten word of the ultimate Pantheon. All it took was multiple dealings with those knowledgable of the place and it wasn't long until he found a cushy spot for himself. He delighted in all the new faces to make contracts (and abuse the hell out of them).
    • His ascension was met with immediate condemnation with Cayden Cailean. Previously the lone deitiy of his world, the Archdevil was literally one god he wanted the least to ascend. Is also one of the few gods in the Pantheon that would never negotiate with him for any circumstances. He also warned Cosmos not to do the same.
  • Upon entering the Pantheon, he was annoyed with the notion of being a newcomer when he was so quick to dismiss younger deities in his own world. His own followers would retort he has a contract that would deliver him the multiverse. Most deities would consider that an outrageous bluff. The Question put it as one more conspiracy to uncover.
  • Asmodeus not only rules Hell in Golarion's multiverse, but also in the Forgotten Realms' multiverse. He hopes to spread his influence in even more worlds.
  • Has a rather conflicting relationship between Melkor and YHWH. In truth, he enjoys working with both deities and was disappointed in how much both factions hate each other. When both gods told him to choose a side, he chose to walk out. Both sides vow to bring Asmodeus into the fold; The Prince of Darkness duly intends to play the field.
  • There is one deity who he refuses to cooperate with. He was appalled to see a demon as one of the four most powerful deities in the Pantheon. Lucifer delightfully pointed that out to troll him. Asmodeus has put significant resources to unseat the leader of the GUAC.
    • Various demons in the Pantheon have pooled their resources towards Lucifer after their followers started being attacked by his forces. The Beast, Samuel and the succubi all teamed up in support of Lucifer.
  • Asmodeus already has a strong disdain for the drow, disappointed in their choice of Chaotic Evil gods and demons. The existance of Drizzt Do'Urden is an even greater insult, seeing him side with Cayden after defecting. Drizzt is well versed in the devil's existence and has experience in dealing with his kind.
  • Rumor has it that he killed his Good-aligned equivalent deity in his world, which was his brother. The Godhand was impressed with his treachery and vowed to vouch for his side in the meantime.
  • He has domain over some other concepts in the Pantheon in Golarion such as Tyranny, Slavery, Pride and Contracts. For contracts, he made a deal with Calypso to carry on his work there while the later maintains his work elsewhere.
  • Behind every dictatorship is an education to match, one that is designed to suppress any chance of rebellion. To that end he depends on Agatha Trunchbull. She may be a Sadistic Teacher, but she knows how to keep a classroom under control.
  • While Asmodeus employs those who exploit loopholes with contracts, Faust is in charge of those who sign said contracts. Whether he cooperates with the devil depends on the version. In some cases, Faust is under the complete command of Mephistopheles, Asmodeus' direct underling. In other cases, he revolts against so far as to use his new powers against the dealers.
  • Rosemary saw far too many similarities with his followers to cultists she had to deal with. Her followers lament about having to deal with yet another Satanic Archetype character. They have already been subject to attacks from his own followers.

Lesser Gods

    Commander Samuel Vimes 
His Grace His Excellency Commander Sir Samuel Vimes, The Fettered God (Sam, Old Stoneface, Blackboard Monitor Vimes)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samuel_vimes.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A copper badge in the shape of a shield with the number 177 on it.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Lawful Good. (While noteworthy for maintaining "a certain anti-authoritarianism" he is often seen as defining lawful good)
  • Portfolio: Grumpy but good hearted police chiefs, Heroic Willpower in spades, dirty fighting for a good cause, Papa Wolves and Badass Normals
  • Domains: Law, Good, Truth, Badassness
  • Followers: Andrew F. Gooley, Inspector Todd, Chief Bogo, Julius Root, Barney Miller, Lieutenant Al Giardello, Aveline Vallen
  • Superior: Terry Pratchett
  • Allies: The House of Justice ... the institution itself rather than the people who are in it, Rick Blaine, Dr. House, Lin Beifong
  • Rivals: Ezio Auditore
  • Enemies: The House of Crime, Lex Luthor, David Xanatos
  • Opposes: The Houses of Commerce, Vampires and Royalty
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: All members of the House of Justice good aligned or otherwise, Axe Cop, Inferno Cop, Vi, Caitlyn
  • Pities: Chester Bum
  • Odd Friendship: Omar Little
  • Respected by: Humphrey Bogart
  • No one knows when this man entered the Pantheon, but it's common knowledge that Sam Vimes is one of the founders of the House of Justice and thus one of the oldest members. After serving as a patron for policemen throughout the Pantheon, he has took on responsibility to lead them all.
    • As head of all police officers divine and mortal, he only had two rules: do your job and don't talk to him unless spoken too. Although the later rule isn't strictly enforced, he is clear in his dislike in being forced into a conversation. With that said, he firmly has faith in the House to deliver justice to those who need it... it's just that he holds a cynical view on everyone he meets. Not even Dredd himself is exempt.
  • Eventually, he stepped down from the position and is currently looking for the next best candidate for the job.
  • Has a long list of gods he hates in the Pantheon. Most of those gods reside or are associated with the Houses of Commerce, Vampires and Royalty. That includes good-aligned deities, though those gods have a chance to get on his good side with a lot of persistence. In general, he despises heads of authority more than anything else. It's the reason why he refused to take a spot in the Protectors of Justice
  • Has always had a soft spot with the homeless, giving small donations to Chester A. Bum's temple. That doesn't mean he goes light on the man whenever the bum gets caught. It only means that he's more comfortable with the poorest beggar to the richest man.
  • Is naturally enemies with the House of Crime given the work he does. With that said, many in the Pantheon respects the man to stick up against authority, something many would agree on.
  • Frequency spends his time drinking alcohol in the House of food. Often times it's with Rick Blaine, making him one of the few deities he doesn't immediately suspect of wrongdoing.
    • During one of his trips there, he heard the infamous sound of "Omar Comin'." Instead of fleeing, the Chief decided to stare face to face with the man for once. Omar was impressed with his bravery, deciding to sit down to eat with him. After some minutes, Sam grew a begrudged respect for the man and his honor. Likewise, Omar appreciated someone who could stand next to him without being a prick. The two promised to chat again sometime before departing. Thus a beautifully odd friendship was formed.
  • Only goes to Dr. House in one of the rare times he goes to get a check up. The two love to chide each other through the entire checkup, but it's in good faith with each other. Dr. Cox may not meet up with him for checkups, but the two tolerate him enough to occasionally hang out.
  • Being the former God of Policemen he has been the subject of many assassination attempts, including those who want to steal his throne. Yet Sam managed to best every challenge so far. One can only wonder what would happen if he faces the God of Assassins himself. Exio has declined the challenge for now, citing there are more vile enemies to take down. Still, the challenge in itself would be difficult to turn down in the long run.
  • Villains such as Lex Luthor and Xanatos have proven to be both his most hated foes and the most difficult to fight. Their good publicity coupled with their cunning has stymied his efforts to put them behind bars.
  • Other cops who reside outside the House of Justice receive similar treatment. He is particularly wary of Vi, given her past life as a criminal as well as residing with them in the House of Crime. Caitlyn constantly warns him to loosen up on her.
  • He is slightly more tolerant of Inferno Cop and Axe Cop, mainly because they never ask questions about their work and are in general highly successful in their work. He's satisfied as long as they keep up the good work.
  • Given his anti-authoritarianism, some deities put him more in line with detectives. Indeed, those deities are less disliked by Vimes than cops. Indeed, Bogart regards the man as a mashup of both detectives he depicted. The chief currently denies such claims, as does his creator Terry Pratchett.
  • Even Vimes spent a small part of his time mourning for his creator's passing. When asked why the change of heart, he retorted that even he can grieve about things at times.
  • Unique among gods in that he disapproves of people following him (and many of the other gods in the Pantheon of Justice). He holds that any true copper would be far too suspicious of someone claiming to be a god of policemen to actually worship him. That said, he seems to have less issue with "followers" who simply take after him in the right ways rather than worship him outright, such as Lin Beifong, who he personally campaigned to ascend to the House of Justice. Despite this failing and her being ascended in another house, Vimes and Beifong have continued to maintain an alliance, as she often visits him for advice and to compare perspectives.

Quasideities

    Chris Mclean 
Chris Mclean, God of Ignoring His Own Rules
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/besttvshow.png
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: An image of his own face
  • Theme Song: "I Wanna Be Famous"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Loving attention, self endorsement, a drama queen and an absolute jerk, a gigantic ham, nothing is ever directly his fault
  • Domains: Animated Reality Shows, Selfishness
  • Herald: Chef Hatchet
  • Enemies: The entirety of the Main House (even if they don't realize it), Uncle Howee, Mordecai and Rigby.
  • Was ascended due to the success of his TV series, Total Drama. Upon arrival, Chris attempted to enter the Main House, but was rejected and now occupies the House of Theatre. Chris has hated the members of the Main House ever since.
  • Actually has standards. He doesn't like airing out dirty laundry via reading someone else's diary and he pretty much cringed when he saw what Uncle Howee did with naysayers of his show (ie transform them into marionettes).
  • The Trollkaiger have become interested in him for his trolling ways, except they declined when he decided to make a Reality Show about them and would not stop following them with cameras.
  • As of late, a young mortal by the name of Topher (one of Chris's contestants) has tried sucking up to Chris since ascension, trying to usurp his place in the Pantheon. It has yet to actually work out for him, though.
  • He seeks the powers granted by the Realm of Darthon, which let his rule-breaking reach its fullest extent. Mordecai and Rigby have agreed to keep the game away from him, as he reminds them of a Japanese reality show host that once tried to kill them.
  • Things have gotten sour as of late regarding his daughter having a Persona...most notably he has learned how violent she has become (like how she once pierced Jeff Hardy's eye out) and her friendship with the Cutie Marks Crusaders (who have become unhinged due to two trips to Limbo) has caused him to be worried for the future. Time will tell whether or not he gets taken by the TV world...
