  • Not long after Hector's ascension, two divine looking beings, a woman in red with a large hat and a skeletal humanoid with large black wings were seen out on a date in the House of Love and Affection. The Court of the Gods were notified of their presence and sent messengers to summon them, but the couple show themselves up to the courtroom and introduced themselves as La Muerte and Xibalba. The Court tells them that they qualify for the God Couple trope, due to the fact that they are two deities married to each other and are still going strong despite their differences. They accept their newfound position and settled in the sub-Houses of Divine Behavior and Couples Archetypes.
  • Speaking of Hector, he at first thought they run his homeworld's Land of the Dead. They told him that is sadly not the case, but they still have good relations with him as they sympathized with his former best friend KILLING HIM and stealing the credit of a song he wrote, as well as trying to reunite with his daughter, much like Manolo Sanchez's own problems with Joaquin and Maria. On another unrelated note, the three have noticed the similarities between their universes and decided they shouldn't be discussed further than that.
  • They have donated a copy of The Book of Life to the House of Knowledge, with Histoire and the Librarian acknowledging the transaction. Histoire in particular got along with the divine couple really well for guarding a big book of information much like their Herald, the Candlemaker who she got acquainted with swiftly.
  • They have quickly allied themselves with Cosmos, Eru Iluvatar and his second in command, Manwe who have congratulated them for giving the people of San Angel an edge in fighting the bandit king Chakal. They were wary of Xibalba and his previous actions, though the latter says he is trying to redeem himself from them by playing nice; La Muerte promises them he will not cheat again, considering she's his Morality Pet.
    • Of course, Melkor did not take kindly to their ascension so he threatens them by vowing to extinguish the Land of the Remembered just out of spite, which rubs them the wrong way and also shows that there are far more worse adversaries than Chakal. Lord Chaos and Garland are also villains the couple have been wary of, since Cosmos heavily implied she and Chaos were once an item and Xibalba feels conflicted from hearing about it.
    • The other Grand United Alliance Leaders are not friendly with them either. YHVH thinks the Land of the Remembered does not deserve times of joy, a fact La Muerte takes great offense at. Lucifer may have somewhat reasonable goals, but his penchant for anarchic chaos makes Chakal look like a wannabe. Nekron may as well top their enemies list; him wanting death and destruction makes him more dangerous than Chakal, which threatens the living and the Land of the Remembered as well. Nekron called them pathetic for giving the dead too much leeway, especially Xibalba for not being spiteful enough to go against everyone; this angered Xibalba greatly, who refutes that despite his abrasiveness towards everyone, he wouldn't stoop too low to the point of raising the dead because he has someone he cares about. Nekron then leaves disgusted at them, angered at their moral upstanding.
  • The couple have a better time with Retsu Unohana than with Nurgle. That's because Retsu cares about everyone and their safety while Nurgle thinks so, but does not realize his actions are more harmful to others. Nurgle thinks he could be best buds with Xibalba, but the latter wants nothing to do with him.
    Xibalba: Yeah, sorry buddy. I can't hang out with you, I must uh... feed my snake.
    • They cannot agree with SCP-049 and his perspective on "curing" the living. That would mean far too many needless deaths entering the Lands of the Remembered and Forgotten. Xibalba is offended that someone else with the Touch of Death never thinks about what their powers can actually do to innocents. They are also enemies with Malthael, a Fallen Angel that has powers over death and seeks to purge all living beings corrupted by demons who sees the couple as demonic.
  • Being a divine couple, they have gotten along with other couples. They see a lot of themselves in Gomez & Morticia Addams and Hades & Persephone, who welcome them warmly in their respective temples anytime. They were surprised that Kouta Kazuraba & Mai Takatsukasa were once human, and Kouta does more Divine Intervention than Mai who must always look after Planet Helheim. They were also surprised that Zen, a divine being and Rei, a human can actually get together. Princess Cadance & Shining Armor have also congratulated them (Cadance especially) on maintaining their happy marriage.
    • Zeus and Hera never had the best marriage, which disappointed La Muerte and Xibalba. Doesn't help that Zeus constantly cheated on her with other goddesses (and mortals) and Hera commends them for having a happier marriage despite giving said goddesses (and mortals) punishments for getting close to him, something even La Muerte finds too much. The other Hades is someone they're enemies with, since he tarnishes their good friend's name. Considering what they are capable of, he is treading caution while still finding a way to taunt them good.
    • Aphrodite thought Xibalba would be to willing cheat on La Muerte, but the truth couldn't be more farther than that as they love each other too deeply. This relieved her greatly and she wishes them the best, which they accept more than they do with Hera's praise. They have heard of Ato-ko Shirogane and her shtick of destroying relationships and already, they are more than happy to punish her should she do the same to them. Ato-ko herself wouldn't dare to ruin their marriage, considering that they are deities and their devotion is too strong to be broken.
    • They feel conflicted over the fact that a villainous couple like Medea & Souichirou Kuzuki could be happy together. Sure, their marriage is something they can respect, but both are willing to do bad things nonetheless. Trip & Grace feel insecure and are in denial over the fact that two deities are happier being together than they are; the divine couple tries to give them marriage advice, but they are too adamant and refuses to even listen to them.
  • Given that the Land of the Remembered needs everyone remembering their loved ones, La Muerte has befriended Mithra for managing the faith for the Trope Pantheons. Asura also got acquainted with her, finding her not as bad as the other gods he met in his adventure. He and Mithra are still intimidated by Xibalba and are wary of him, despite the latter being harmless.
  • They are very impressed with The Nephalem's exploits of defeating Diablo just by not being included in their prophecy. It helps that their heroic roles are just like Manolo's, though La Muerte granted Manolo the power to be Immune to Fate while The Nephalem were already granted said power from the start.
  • Since they love making bets a lot which gives them ups and downs (severity depends on their actions), they are seeking Tsunade and Marge Simpson for counseling on reducing this behaviour. Though half the time, Tsunade often ended up enabling said behaviour instead, causing Marge to Face Palm. Tsunade does note that she and La Muerte have something in common. For Marge, she at least finds solace over the fact that they are Good Parents towards their children, even if one of them (Sartana) ended up being a bad guy. Given the bad experiences of Xibalba cheating during bets, Bandit Keith is someone they consider a bad example of, even moreso than Xibalba. Keith is staying far away from them, lest he makes a bet with them and not holding up his promises like he usually do.
  • Lord English and Doc Scratch are arguably worse than Nekron in terms of wanting destruction and the couple are making preparations should their plan nearly comes to fruition again. There's also Zanza, who wants to recreate the world as he sees fit after destroying it and Yuki Terumi, whose countless atrocities involve inflicting despair and provoking weapons of mass destruction just to get back at the creator goddess that has forsaken him. Misanthropes like Shinobu Sensui and Lysandre are also enemies to look out for considering like them, Chakal hates his fellow humans too. All of them see La Muerte and Xibalba as greater obstacles to overcome so that they can achieve their goals for the end of the world.
  • They have met Madoka Kaname and find her a really sweet girl who only wants what was best for everyone. Her friend, Homura Akemi is a bit different; sure Homura's pain of wanting to see her friend again is understandable, but she also depowered said friend just so she does not lose her. La Muerte is more willing to hear her out (despite Homura not wanting to talk about it), knowing that Homura is suffering as much as everyone she has wronged while Xibalba sees it as an injustice, vowing to end Homura for good should she pull another stunt like that.
  • The Land of the Forgotten is where the dead go whenever nobody ever remember them. However, the couple has never heard of someone being instantly erased from existence; that someone is Xion. They have met her and were saddened of her fate in the mortal world. Xion also has warned them about Master Xehanort and his plans to kidnap the princesses and other girls with similar auras for his grand master plan against the entire Pantheons, which they agree to keep in mind. They then bet each other that either one of them will ruin one of Xehanort's plans.
  • They have met Dizzy, who's also a sweetheart like Madoka. Xibalba is fascinated by her black wing, Necro though he assures her that he just find him cool-looking and not provoking him until he's out of control. SCP-1440 does not like them, since he mostly stay away from death entities after escaping death, despite the couple actually pitying his state.
  • Apparently according to their creator, they along with La Muerte's sister, La Noche and her husband, El Chamuco make bets all the time, which ended up causing every single event known in human history. Because of this, all deities (even the real ones who are still living) are now wary of them and Marge has more reasons to be exasperated at them.
  • Exclusive to La Muerte:
    • La Muerte has gotten along with other benevolent goddesses and queens like Palutena and Princess Celestia. She finds a lot of common ground with Palutena and even joins her for tea talking about their favourite people. Princess Celestia is happy that La Muerte is living proof that death is not always a bad thing.
    • She rules the Land of the Remembered, an afterlife where the dead go and stay forever as long as there is people alive to remember them. Since she shows that the afterlife is a fun place, she gets along with the good-aligned deities in the sub-house of Afterlife Entities. Her opinion on the evil ones are obvious. There is also Lord Death, who La Muerte once serve as his follower. Lord Death is ecstatic that a fellow friendly reaper is here and together, they help spread the idea that death is not something to fear.
    • She has also befriended fellow All Loving Heroes Yusuke Godai, Rushuna Tendou and Fluttershy. She is glad that Yusuke and Rushuna are fighting for everyone's happiness and Fluttershy was initially almost intimidated by her appearance, but is relieved once she find La Muerte to be quite friendly and also have met Princess Celestia.
  • Exclusive to Xibalba:
    • Finds a lot of common ground with Discord, who finds him a jolly good fellow to have fun with. It helps that they are reforming, though Celestia, La Muerte and Fluttershy are making sure that they still do so. Also got along with fellow Trickster God Loki, who also reformed though even Xibalba is making sure to be wary of his motives time and time again.
    • Has joined Death from Regular Show, Grim and Charon for their own games of poker. Xibalba feels bad about Grim's predicament of having to be the best friend of two kids (doesn't help that one is incredibly stupid and the other is scarily bossy, even for a child) and Charon being Sadly Mythtaken just like his superior, Hades. The three find him a not really bad guy, though they promise to La Muerte that his cheating habits will be punished more often than not, given they too value upholding bargains.
    • Under supervision of Dizzy's father Sol Badguy who helps other people who did bad things repent for their actions. It also helps (and is often irking) they have another thing in common.

  • Commonality Connection with: Illidan Stormrage (Kiritsugu)
  • Pities: Captain Martin Walker (Kiritsugu)
  • For the longest time, Kiritsugu Emiya have been killing mages left and right even before the start of the 4th Holy Grail War. That is until he is hired by the Einzberns to protect Irisviel, a homunculus who is groomed to be the vessel of the Holy Grail. She was also allowed to give birth, which sired Illyasviel. During their time together, they fall in love and their dynamic is exemplary; she comforts him when he's at his most broken. Needless to say, this doesn't last long as Iri got kidnapped by Kotomine and strangled to death by him when she told him about Kiritsugu's wish; after she fused with the Grail, Kiritsugu had to destroy dark constructs of her and Illya made by the corrupted Grail, breaking him even further. Their tragic story earns them their title to the Trope Pantheons.
    • Kiritsugu ascended first as the God of Pragmatic Heroes which he finds to be rather ironic, having openly criticized the Throne of Heroes for taking glory in war and finding himself in a literal Pantheon of Heroes. He's okay with his title... then he got lonely without Irisviel around. He could have spent time with Shirou and Illya but they have their own friends to hang out with, so he decided to change his title. The Court of the Gods found out his compatibility with Irisviel is unmatched compared to other couples with a similar dynamic; knowing he will not let a happier couple get in but at the same time saving them from the harsh world that awaits them, Kiritsugu accepts the change. With that finalized, at long last he has reunited with the love of his life, Irisviel von Einzbern.
  • Applies to both of them:
    • The first thing the couple did is to see their daughter Illyasviel once again. Illya is super happy that her father got her mother in the Pantheons and the three hugged each other as they cherish their new reunion. Shirou also happens to be there, and was surprised and happy to see his father once again. Kiritsugu is so proud of his growth, even commending him for throwing away his ideals to save Sakura (well, they are kind of unhealthy anyway). Irisviel took a liking to Shirou and proclaims herself his new mother figure; Shirou never had a proper mother figure since losing his birth parents in the Fuyuki Fire, so he's ecstatic to bond with her. Of course, she will not bring up her other self's tendency to sell off pictures of him to potential suitors...
      • They then meet Heracles, who has been taking care of Illya since she summoned him. Luckily, he was not a Berserker at the time so he's lucid enough to speak; anyway, the couple felt grateful for him to take care of Illya when they left her behind long ago to which Heracles accepted humbly since he's a hero and heroes got to take care of every children they were entrusted to. They were shocked and saddened that he was forced to kill his wife and child in a fit of blind rage, not unlike Kiritsugu who had to kill dark copies of his wife and child that nonetheless still psychologically broke him while Heracles understand why Illya's parents left her at the Einzbern manor. After all of this, they trust him enough to protect Illya and he too protects them by extension.
      • They are aware of Archer's real identity and Kiritsugu always made sure that he gave him a sad, but understanding smile on him. Irisviel can't help but feel somewhat uneasy towards him; not because she distrusts him, but she feels a great burden in his heart...
      • They are surprised that there's an Illya who actually lived a good life they wanted her to have. The young magical girl at first thought her parents are finally here, but then her original self told her that's not the case; Iri still took a liking to the more innocent Illya and Kiritsugu is blessed that he basically has two daughters now, even if they share the same name. They felt bad for Miyu Edelfelt, whose Kiritsugu is a more heartless man and never cared for her, to which the real Kiritsugu called him a failure of a father and resolves to be better at taking care of Miyu. As for Chloe, well... they do value her, but she has done very naughty things that they would consider un-childlike. Chloe is a little scared of them; sure they are nice to her, but she had bad memories of the other Iri kicking her ass like she's another mook for trying to kiss her while Kiritsugu has enough means to put her down lethally with his Anti-Magic Origin Bullets and a ruthless resolve to assassinate. She could nothing but shudder at their mere presences.
      • Taiga is ecstatic to see the two again for different reasons. She's got a Precocious Crush on Kiritsugu when she was younger and she met Irisviel after the latter pulled her in for the Einzbern Consultation Room gags. Kiritsugu entrusts her to keep taking care of Shirou while Iri is glad that Taiga got her out of Angra Mainyu's possession.
      • Their reunion with Saber is both conflicting for Kiritsugu and heartwarming for Irisviel. On one hand, Saber gets along well with Iri, even having fitting dynamics with her. On the other, Kiritsugu got along the least with Saber because back then, their philosophies clash greatly with Saber harboring disgust over his dishonorable actions and lack of decency despite no longer caring about him forcing her to destroy the grail while Kiritsugu considers her someone who is too bound by a romanticized view of war and chivalry to amount to much good in the world. Of course, Kiritsugu has long since been inactive in his assassination business (Maiya's not pushing it either, surprisingly) and he has entrusted his hidden ideals to Shirou entirely, so their hostilities has since reduced quite fairly; he and Irisviel are surprised that Saber and Shirou are romantically close, but they are not complaining since the two have been through a lot and they deserve some happiness after all that. Since their bitter opinions of each other crops up every now and again, their teamwork will be a last resort should everything go down the drain fast enough.
      • They both were alarmed of Saber Alter's existence, since she's basically Saber corrupted by the Greater Grail's black mud and under Angra Mainyu's control, which horrified Irisviel and unsettles Kiritsugu. Even worse is that she turned her back on her ideals, giving her a tyrant-like mentality and made her methods like Kiritsugu's. Saber Alter expresses that she now sees Kiritsugu's point of his cynicism, but since she was once the Artoria Pendragon that served him, her grudge against him didn't go anywhere; in fact it has grown a lot worse since she's now even angrier at him. Irisviel felt another of her worst nightmares have been realized upon just seeing Saber Alter, who she sees as very naïve and said to her the following:
      Saber Alter: I have seen far worse, Irisviel. It is better if you have not experienced all of the world's evil...
      • They were surprised to find Tokiomi's daughters being alive and well. Rin and Sakura have finally met the adoptive father of Shirou and... were surprised to see him subdued in spite of his "Magus Killer" reputation. He's fine with them being with Shirou as long as Shirou makes them happy, but he's stopping himself from telling them everything about their family because he feels they don't have the mental fortitude to take it all in.
    • Kiritsugu feels he is not fit to be a "Hero of Justice" due to not only everything that has happened to him, but his morally bankrupt actions already stripped away his rights to be one. That's why he's fine with entrusting his ideals to someone who has the powers to do so, like to Shirou as well as Sieg, Jeanne d'Arc and Siegfried and said they could do a better job than him. The three were conflicted over his actions but nonetheless still determine to be better than Kiritsugu and Jeanne hopes he may find happiness with his family in the Pantheons. Jeanne also feel obligated to protect Irisviel since the latter is a conduit of the Holy Grail; Irisviel is flattered nonetheless and they hanged out over tea with Saber every once in a while.
      • He also considers Raiden, Optimus Prime and Yuji Sakai to be better "Heroes of Justice" than him. He sympathizes with Raiden after hearing about his past as a Child Soldier, and having experienced what war can do to a person and with Yuji after hearing that he is trying to end a war that has lasted for millennia and the war would eventually end humanity. Optimus shares Jeanne's opinion that Kiritsugu may not take back what he did, but at least he felt remorse for them and hopes he finds happiness again.
    • Kiritsugu and Irisviel may had gone through a horrible war, but they had never thought a war between dimensions can break out badly. Yuya Sakaki, Yuzu Hiiragi and their counterparts filled in on their experiences to them and all they could express is sympathy and horror, especially that Yuya and his counterparts are reincarnations of Z-ARC; Kiritsugu expressed he would have killed one of them if he was there, but today he wouldn't want to consider that. He and Iri got along with Yuto and Ruri Kurosaki the best since they get the worst brunt of the war by the Fusion Dimension's invasion of their Heartland and they see themselves in the kids while Yuto finds Kiritsugu to be like his friend Shun, only more extreme and brutal while they oppose Yuri who revel in the war's chaos and everyone's suffering, which Yuri feels no need to refute despite turning good at the end.
    • The couple felt bad for Homura since she and Kiritsugu would do anything for the women they love, even relating their extreme methods to one another; she confided in them because they were kind to her and Kiritsugu considers her a mini-him. Irisviel wanted to console her so badly, but Homura refuses to ever talk about her regrets and feels she deserve the bad reputation she was given, further saddening the three.
    • Master Chief has some rocky relations with Kiritsugu; the Chief is a lawful soldier that follows orders and pushes himself to do what's right and not what's easy while Kiritsugu would do whatever it takes to get the job done and honor just doesn't factor into that equation. They have gotten a bit better when Kiritsugu said he does regret his actions later to the point he quitted after saving Shirou; at least they sound like each other which they decide is something they could exploit soon and agreed that War Is Hell. While the Chief would definitely like to see Kiritsugu use his methods against the Covenant, he's not so sure he could see him go against Insurrectionists.
      • The Chief was once Homura's guardian, but then tensions built up regarding the morality of her actions and they ended up becoming distant towards each other. Due to this turn of events, Homura now turn to Kiritsugu and Irisviel for more moral support; this also contested the Chief's and Kiritsugu's partnership and who knows how long it will end badly as well.
    • Oriko found Kiritsugu to be a bit terrifying at first due to his Magus Killer reputation, not helping matters that Homura Akemi was said to resemble him, but she later was told that Kiritsugu had a certain characteristic that Homura didn't have. She liked him a bit better because of this, though he commented that "her heart was in the right place, but she escalated her actions too quickly." Meanwhile, Irisviel did pity her due to her backstory and resulting actions that spiraled from it, though she found her murder of Madoka Kaname a bit too far, not helping that she unwittingly doomed Mitakihara City due to no one able to stop Walpurgisnacht, which reminded them of the unfortunate results of the 4th Holy Grail War.
    • Because his cynicism rubs idealists the wrong way, Kiritsugu had friction among most heroic Kamen Riders since they largely fight for the sight of good. The compassionate ones do feel bad for his tragedy while the righteous ones feel uneasy towards him for his actions. Kiritsugu for his part tries not to cross their paths too much while Irisviel largely defends her husband like a good wife would.
      • There are two Riders he did got along with; Takatora Kureshima and Hiiro Kagami. Takatora felt bad for the couple and is willing to understand Kiritsugu crossing his lines while Hiiro sympathized with losing a loved one before your eyes and saw a lot of Saki in Irisviel. Taylor Herbert, who shares the same sub-house with Takatora also gained the couple's sympathy since she's just a young kid when she's Forced into Evil; Taylor herself is glad there are adults she can trust, though she does find Kiritsugu's past disagreeable.
    • Griffin feels bad for the couple because they were stuck in a hopeless war where death is inevitable and tragedy strikes at anytime. Even in a timeline where they slain the rest of Einzbern household and getting Illya safe, there is still bound to have death and tragedy. The couple didn't disagree either with Kiritsugu stating, "Even if I have the choice to turn back time, I wouldn't have changed anything. People will die regardless and I can't change that." Relatedly, Iri is amazed that Griffin can see possible timelines, which is not that different from Iri keeping memories of other Grail Wars due to being a vessel of the Holy Grail.
    • Kiritsugu and Iri have found out that there were couples who also had an ordeal like theirs. Zero and Gunvolt found a lot in common with Kiritsugu, being former cold-hearted hunters who found someone that gave them emotional security and they also took a liking to Iri, who's sad that they lost their beloved tragically not unlike her husband losing her. Joule is still alive, but she has fused with GV who refused to see her as the same person; so Quinn is helping to fix that by being saved. The thing is, Joule became a new person entirely with no past memory and GV decided to give her a new life she deserves by keeping her out of his life, even if it breaks his heart. Hearing of this, Iri took GV and hugged him to comfort him and told him he's never alone anymore.
      • As for Zero's situation, the similarly named Iris, perished after being defeated while having her brother's powers, though afterwards she's alive and well in the Pantheons; she and Zero had enough heartbreak to go through but fortunately they remain amicable and Iri wished the best for each of their happiness.
      • They had a double date with Squall and Rinoa since like Raiden, Squall was a Child Soldier going through harsh training while Rinoa is a kind general's daughter. Likewise in another instance, Cloud and Tifa are Childhood Friends who also had the same dynamic with Tifa giving Cloud his emotional needs. The four were saddened that the married couple did not last very long to the end, though Kiritsugu and Irisviel assures them that it's all good now that they are in the Pantheons.
    • The couple are not happy that Kirei Kotomine and his Servant, Gilgamesh is in the Pantheons. Their reasons are understandable; Kotomine kidnapped Irisviel and strangled her to death once she expressed Kiritsugu's wish and Kiritsugu not only will never forgive him for that, but also starting the Fuyuki Fire that took away Shirou's parents and Gilgamesh enabled that behaviour, making him just as gulity. The two have been preparing for a rematch in spite of the Holy Grail War being over, yet the bad blood between them will never be truly quiet and Irisviel will NOT stop her husband for that; Saber agrees to keep Gil out of the picture should that happens.
      • They also hate Zouken Matou for torturing Sakura to the point of her not being able to be happy and Kiritsugu called it a mistake for Tokiomi to trust him. Araya Souren is also on their hit list since he's an accomplice to Kotomine by providing him shelter in his temple (an apartment complex). Kiritsugu and Maiya are looking to destroy the temple, but Araya has anticipated this however, and has erected new barriers to counter the origin bullet.
    • Ever since hearing all about Kiritsugu and how he suffers so beautifully as he's forced to lose everything he loves due to his ideals from Kotomine, Melkor is deliberately going out of his way to torment him even further with his forces of the GUAE. Yuki Terumi, Junko Enoshima, Evolt and The Joker are also following suit to ensure Kiritsugu never moves on from his despair, which he despises them for doing and considers them lower than the Mage's Association. Esdeath might top them in the sadistic department and Kiritsugu is willing to work with Night Raid in order to stop her.
      • Handsome Jack is also someone he and Iri agree to be very deplorable, not because of his pettiness, but he did monstrous actions in the name of good and that he used to be a legitimate hero which makes him an Evil Counterpart of sorts to Kiritsugu. Even worse is he murdered his own wife and abuses his daughter Angel to fuel Eridium into a Vault Key, further cementing their intense hatred towards him. Jack has a twisted respect towards Kiritsugu which he considers killing mages in cold blood to be heroic yet still considers him and Iri to be no better than Pandora's bandits, which the couple take great offense to.
    • Since he sees war as something to profit from, the couple hates Sundowner for doing so. They also hate Monsoon and his nihilistic philosophy where memes spread among people and cause great discord which they greatly disagree given their idealism. The Millennium Organization also earned their scorn due to the Major enjoying war and his subordinates are enjoying every second of everyone getting caught in the crossfire.
    • Father Homunculus has earned scorn from Kiritsugu and Irisviel due to being an evil homunculus and planning to sacrifice a lot of human souls to fuel his malevolent ends, and Illya pointed out his Philosopher's Stone is just like the Holy Grail which makes him no better than the mages of their world. Yaldabaoth is a Holy Grail himself albeit a fake one and the couple are now wary of him and his plans thanks to Saber's warnings. Master Xehanort finds Irisviel to be useful in his plans despite her not being a Princess of Heart, since he can achieve so much with the Holy Grail; Iri is alarmed and Kiritsugu angrily points a gun at him telling him to back off. Xehanort is biding his time to find a good opportunity to fit Iri into his plans.
    • Evil parents like Relius, Ghetsis, Hojo, Banno, Ragyo, Dr. Drevis and Dr. Lamb as well as the Child Abuse Supporters are instantly on their shitlist since they would never do that to Illya and consider them lower than Zouken. It's bad enough that Kiritsugu is considering coming out of retirement just to kill these sons of beyotches, though luckily his other allies will take care of that for him.
  • Exclusive to Kiritsugu:
    • Being a Vigilante Man, he's also close to Jack Bauer due to kind of similar method in dealing with what he considered evil, and he likes one of his theme songs. For that friendship, Jack has shared some knowledge with Kiritsugu, in particular his interrogation technique. Garrus Vakarian and The Punisher also got along with Kiritsugu for taking matters into their own hands and they are willing to take over his job of killing heartless magi when Kiritsugu expressed he's done killing anyone anymore.
    • Is considered the bane of MANY Gods and Goddesses in the House of Magic, even by Homura. None dared tried to piss him off or get on his bad side. When asked why, most followers would reply with, "Does the term Magus Killer ring a bell to you?" Kroak does, however, approve of him and his philosophy and Kiritsugu returns that respect with a quiet smile on his face. He and Touma also formed a Mage Killer duo and every magic user are now scared shitless of them.
    • Like with Saber, he's gotten bad blood with Diarmuid Ua Duibhne (since he never got to say that to him when he was around). He considered the hatred he got from them to be a natural reaction; they're never going to get along like water and oil since he killed Diarmuid's Master right in front of him.
    • Thanks to his skill as a 'Magus Killer', he was eventually befriended by Tavish DeGroot since the Demoman has a large amount of hate towards the House of Magic, mostly the evil ones. Because of this, both of them do normal hunts for evil deities within the house. Ironically though, Kiritsugu didn't want to befriend him since he may get into Artoria's bad side. He still became friends nonetheless.
      • However, at one point, Gul'dan's ascension in the House caused both of them to hunt the Darkness Incarnate. The damage around the house was catastrophic, and even destroyed half of the house itself. This became the last straw for Saber and decided to place the Demoman in her Teeth-Clenched Teamwork list, with him being the THE 2ND LAST RESORT she will work with. This got both of them disappointed but still tolerable to each other. Irisviel heard about of this from Saber and forbids her husband from going out for three weeks due to that incident.
    • He was seen drinking with Spike Spiegel and Shinya Kogami and some onlookers thought three of the same people were there due to having similar looks. Spike actually relate to Kiritsugu in losing someone they loved and some gods have actually thought of a line by the words of "See ya, Magus Killer", but they pay no mind to that. Kogami also relates to Kiritsugu in the vigilante department and they made a partnership by meeting in secret since Kogami is on the run in his world.
    • The Magus Killer is the confidant of Commander Farsight and is willing to understand his reasons for his Zero Approval Gambits. Farsight understands Kiritsugu is not willing to kill anymore and also fills in for him in taking care of Homura despite not agreeing with Homura's methods in protecting Madoka.
    • Maiev Shadowsong, who also hates mages partnered with Kiritsugu in hunting Gul'dan and other mages and fills in for Maiya should she be out of commission for a while. Illidan Stormrage calls it a shame because he sees a lot of himself in Kiritsugu and now that he partnered with someone who wants to kill him, he will not be nice to the Magus Killer.
    • As a man who has seen through the hells of war, he felt bad for Martin Walker, and they often sharing stories on how hellish war is and how people should avoid it at all cost. Walker is a bit stunned with Kiritsugu's extreme pragmatism, though, to the point of comparing himself to him of his bloodthirsty part, though Kiritsugu has said he has quitted his hunting long ago. The Magus Killer hopes the unstable captain get some help, or else he will raze another city like what he did in Dubai.
    • There is a possibilty where Kiritsugu became a Counter Guardian should he not be hired by the Einzberns and thus didn't meet Irisviel, making him even more depressed than his regular counterpart. When Iri told him about this, all Kiritsugu could do was sigh.
      Kiritsugu: *sighs* It's better to have a family than not having one at all...
  • Exclusive to Irisviel:
    • Irisviel thinks Illya has her father's eyes even though Illya is technically a duplicate of her. Kiritsugu just plays along to have fun with her.
      • This actually got her pretty well with Steven Universe, who took after his mother a lot more than he did with his father. It helps that he's a sweet boy, willing to befriend both Illyas.
    • She looks really young enough to be passed off as Illya's sister, which makes her friends with Sanae Furukawa and Yoriko Yasaka. Iri enjoys Sanae's pastry and even bought some for her family while Yoriko finds herself another youngin' to look after since in homunculus years, Iri is quite young.
    • As an ingenue with so much more to learn, Irisviel got along well with Yutaka and Ventus. Ventus, having more experience in his adventures finds himself teaching them a lot of stuff; tiring, maybe but at least it's worth it. Amy Rose also befriended Iri because they both see a lot of good in people and provided morality to former cold-hearted people; it helps that Saber introduces Amy to Iri.
    • Asia Argento got along with Irisviel since they both are sweet people to talk to and they have healing powers to boot; Iri was saddened that Asia's church disowned her when they found out about her being a former devil, though Asia assures her she's okay now that Issei is taking care of her. Mai Takatsukasa also relates to Iri in having to embody a powerful object, often unwillingly. Mai is sad that Iri did not live long enough to see her daughter again, though in her eyes Iri is glad that in two timelines, Illya will finally have the good life she deserves.
      • Speaking of healers, Dr. Ziegler befriended Iri at Sanae's bakery and was surprised that they sound alike. Iri is amazed of what Mercy has accomplished while Mercy is saddened that her homunculus lifespan is so short though Iri said that's what makes her life so meaningful; with a short life, you can get everything you want quickly and cherish it forever once it ends. Mercy knows it's inevitable so once Iri finally passes in peace, she vows to be there to see her go.
    • Irisviel can drive, it's just that she doesn't care about traffic cues; that's because she has spent so long driving around her estate that she finds it exhilarating to go nuts elsewhere. This has her gotten along with Yukari Tanizaki, who is arguably worse than her when it comes to driving. At least Iri is aware that Ms. Tanizaki does go too far...
      • Shiki Ryougi remarked that she's basically the opposite of her husband, Mikiya Kokutou when it comes to driving; Iri drives recklessly with no regards to traffic safety while Mikiya drives safely like a normal person and considers traffic safety (which actually irritates Shiki).

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

  • The Caster Servant Medea was summoned into the Fifth Holy Grail War under the Master Atrum Galliasta as her grown-up, embittered self. Galliasta had done two foolish things: used a Command Seal to restrain her and spent the rest on self-indulgement, and shown her his workshop where he sacrifices young girls to be turned into mana crystals in seconds; those two things are enough for Caster to kill him out of sheer disgust. It also proved to be detrimental as she ended up bound to be dematerialized due to killing Galliasta, and she wandered until stumbling upon Souichirou Kuzuki at the foot of Ryuudouji Temple. Forming a new contract with him, she was tended in his care and gradually fell in love with him because he had shown her kindness and loyalty and likewise, Kuzuki fell in love with her because she made him feel something for the first time and stays with her to follow her wishes. Since then, the Ryuudou family also recognized Caster as a honoured guest, letting her stay at the temple until her marriage with Kuzuki is finalized.
    • Later on when the war started, she killed the Master of Assassin in order to summon her own Assassin going by "Sasaki Kojirou" to guard the temple. Hers and Kuzuki's fate varies on the route: either both died at the hands of Gilgamesh in one, Caster dying first and Kuzuki died fighting later on while fighting the heroes in another or dying at the hands of True Assassin in another. When the timelines converged, the couple regained their memories of the previous events and Caster becomes wary of the false transience the seemingly perfect life presented itself to be.
  • Caster and Kuzuki ascended during the early days of the Trope Pantheons, replacing Yukiteru Amano & Yuno Gasai's position of Divine Couple of Married Villains due to the latter pair not being actually married. They got here when they were taking a walk in the park and were compelled by a strange light in a lesser-known path, leading them to the Courtroom to be judged. The Judges appointed them because they are both a couple in love and a pair who will not hesitate to kill, even seemingly not regretting them; despite that they have largely stopped their killings, the couple accepted anyways if it means sticking together for longer.
    • Their Heralds will be Issei Ryuudou, a copy of Medea's younger self and a girl named Ami Kuzuki. Issei is bewildered by the world he's dragged into and even more when the couple he's staying with has a lot going on, and in his eyes Shirou and Rin are his only saving grace. Caster is irked that her younger self manifested, seeing her as a reminder of foolish mistakes though she lightens up when her Souichirou-sama took a liking to her and she mostly hangs around the Master of Chaldea than her. As for Ami... well, the way the couple treats her really seem to be like parents, even though the identity of Ami's mother was kept hidden in her story but regardless, she is often seen with them going around the nearby city.
  • Applies to both of them:
    • It was Caster who helped arrange Assassin's ascension, as she needs a familiar face to help guard her and her Master; Assassin himself is a little displeased that's the case, seeing as she only summoned him for extra obstruction then and now, but he did finally noticed her attractiveness under her hood which irks her. The couple is glad to see Shirou once again, as they have individual respect for him and Shirou himself hesitatingly welcomes them in, he just hopes that they find true happiness in their marriage as long as it doesn't involve killing people for once; he does still finds Kuzuki to be a good teacher regardless. And also he wants Caster to both stop bugging him for looking after Kuzuki and get good at cooking. The couple also hanged out with Len again after that one time and they look like a happy family together, with others even noting that Len and Caster have a witch and cat familiar dynamic even though Len has an actual master in Shiki Tohno. Caster once toyed with the idea of adopting Len, who has yet to comment on that... or maybe she has and no one has noticed.
      • Caster became elated when she heard that Saber is already in the Pantheons, and the reason she wants to kidnap her is to have her wear all of the many kinds of dresses she can think of, a prospect Saber really does not want to entertain and she fears it can escalate into something worse. Rider has a bigger beef with Caster since not only she and her husband killed her in one timeline, but also they both see too much of themselves in each other to the point that it's very irritating. They do call it off for a bit to condemn Saber for slacking off if their moods are good enough. Rin and Archer are not happy that the couple are back, as they are formidable opponents to fight against with Archer still thinking the couple are still Sickeningly Sweethearts and a teamwork between the two pairs will obviously have tension now that there's bigger fish to fry. Caster and Lancer also got off on the wrong foot since the war, but nowadays they're very civil with each other if a little snarky towards each other.
      • Illya and Caster are mostly neutral if a little bit distrusting, but their main scuffle once came about when Illya insulted mature women during the "Castle Illya" incident and Caster takes offense to that. Her Servant, the Berserker Heracles is no better, as Caster can't stand his size and sweating with some thinking this dated back to when they both sailed with Jason together, though Medea Lily speaking less of that means that the older Medea is just displeased of what he is now; as for Kuzuki, he does recognize how Berserker earns his might and Illya managed to summon him yet also prepares himself should he and his wife fight them. The couple are actually quite alright with Taiga Fujimura since she and Kuzuki are co-workers (and even seem to be the only teachers seen at Homurahara) as well as being willing to hear about his problems including being good enough for Caster, who was sad when she heard about it but still keeps an eye on Taiga in case her fears of infidelity came true.
      • Of course, the presences of enemies like Kirei Kotomine, Gilgamesh and Avenger are obviously not welcome in their presences with Gilgamesh even killing Caster in one timeline with "Gate of Babylon" and the couple have to ally with Shirou and others to stand a chance against them. They are also displeased at seeing Zouken Matou and the Hassan of the Cursed Arm again; Zouken basically ordered their deaths by proxy and toyed with their bodies for his own offenses and they're still not over the Cursed Arm Hassan killing them, even if he tries to reason that he was under orders that time and never planned to follow Zouken once again.
    • Medea also made a contract with the Master of Chaldea, AKA Ritsuka Fujimaru in order to help him fight against the Incineration of Humanity started by Goetia; the Master is glad to see the Caster Servant ascend and the feeling is mutual. She introduced Kuzuki to him and Fujimaru starts to understand more on why Medea treasures love so much; Kuzuki is glad that his wife is able to be happy without him as he was not present in the timeline of the Grand Order (not yet at least...).
      • Medea was friends with Atalante back when they were both alive and are still friends in Chaldea and the Pantheons; because of this, Atalante usually tried to behave whenever Kuzuki is around, and if anything she's glad that Medea found a better mate than Jason (but then again, finding someone better than him is not that hard...). Tamamo-no-Mae got acquainted with Medea and Kuzuki after the three met at a grocery store; both Casters relate to one another by being evil mages who managed to find happiness with a person they fell in love with (Hakuno for Tamamo and Kuzuki for Medea) and vow to each other to be good wives to their beloved as well as telling Kuzuki to keep on cherishing his wife. Brynhild surprisingly relate to her, as they both know all to well about being playthings of the Gods that ruin their love lives and destructively lashing out at their object of love, though in Bryn's case it was a punishment; Kuzuki is indeed reminiscent of Sigurd in a way, who Kuzuki is curious about once he heard of the hero's fighting style.
      • Medea is perfectly aware that the Beasts are in the Pantheons and she fills in her husbands on the details, like the journeys taken to beat each of them. Kuzuki knows he alone cannot stand up to the powerful foes, but if his wife is going to face them with her current Master then he'll follow her as well like always.
    • Yukiteru & Yuno once invited the married couple out on a double date, where both pairs get along while talk about their love lives and how they met one another. They actually do not hold a grudge on them, in fact they're happy for them and will continue to do so as Yukiteru and Yuno themselves had less than happy endings which saddens Caster and her husband. Rio & Mele also relate to the couple as they too died tragically after finding love in each other although they were shocked that Medea and Kuzuki has even worse deaths in three separate timelines.
      • Even the Falcons Stella and Dystnine also relate to the couple in a way. Stella is fond of Dystnine who is her android butler, and the sole reason she became a Falcon was to spare his life from Sumeragi Institute's clutches; she doesn't really share the Falcons' hatred for Minos, its just Nothing Personal. In turn, Dystnine is fiercely devoted to her and when she died fighting Copen he went to fight him later solely to avenge her, even if succeeding meant giving Sumeragi ample damning reason to turn on him by way of averting being Three Laws-Compliant. Caster and her husband found them relatable and similar in turn, even in Dystnine continuing to fight without Stella like Kuzuki fighting on without Caster, and the four decided to keep in touch.
    • They may be welcome into the House of Love and Affection for romantic outings, but most deities there along with some outside have some constructive criticism to share. Princess Cadence and Queen Elsa have strained relationships with Medea and Kuzuki since part of them understands why they love each other along with the pain of a betrayal of that kind of love for Elsa, yet they do not fully support their actions saying they need to find redemption for their sins. The least Cadence can do to live and let live is to wish them happiness as long as they don't start more bloodshed. The couples La Muerte & Xibalba and Victor & Victoria are conflicted over them and disliked them respectively with the latter pair doing so out of fear; the evil couple expected it since said actions warrant some criticism but deep down, Caster is a little sad that because of her actions, she and Kuzuki technically pushed them away which kept their social network rather minimal.
    • Ato-ko Shirogane tries her hand in breaking the two up, and it worked... for a while. Let's just say that Ato-ko is now scared of seeing them again after the couple heard of the truth from Shirou and they... "convinced" her to not do it again. Misa Amane is jealous of the couple and wishes that Light loves her as much as they love each other; not that the couple see her in a better light anyways though Caster is startled that she sees too much of herself in Misa in a way. Prince Hans really gets under Medea's skin, though the prince does not understand why she hates him so much; that's because she's reminded of her past dealings with Jason and Galliasta who have told lies and betrayed her and being deplorable respectively with Hans giving off a similar aura. Kuzuki is also ready to strike at Hans and kill him should the prince ever lay a hand on his wife.
      • On the subject of taking advantage of women, the couple hates Embryo and Akio Ohtori as they abused women while in positions of power and far too reminiscent of Galliasta who again, takes advantage of women himself. The two men couldn't care less about them regardless, though Embryo is bummed that he missed a chance at Caster when she was single as he can see the strength of her will as admirable enough to meet his tastes.
    • The enemies of magic are looking to remove Medea and Kuzuki, due to the combined potential deadliness of their teamwork and the magic-cancelling dagger Rule Breaker. Mard Geer Tartaros and Tirek have made their hate for the Master-Servant pair clear enough and the pair likewise. Touma Kamijou and Asuna Kagurazaka might not be as evil as Mard or Tirek but they do agree about the possible elimination of Medea and Kuzuki should they go too far; Asuna is more willing to listen should both parties allow such room for discussion. Naturally, with so many enemies, Medea has considered clearing the dust off of Rule Breaker since she can see perpetual use of the dagger while fighting for Ritsuka though Kuzuki has other ideas about such kinds of problems. And as far as Medea is concerned, only she gets the right to say "RULE BREAKER!!", or at least use it.
    • Through Illya, Caster & Kuzuki met Nagato and his group of fellow morally neutral peers who aid the GUAG and good-aligned members of the GUAL and GUAC. There they also met others whose evil were driven by love, like Darth Vader who turned to the Dark Side out of a desire to defend his wife Padme Amidala, Vlad von Carstein who is married to his wife Isabella and loves her very much yet also did extreme methods for honorable goals that gave him a terrifying reputation, and Mr. Freeze who did villainy in order to save his wife Nora who was stricken with a lesser-known disease; Nagato himself was torn apart over seeing his best friends die in front of him, kickstarting his villainy. The couple were saddened that they all also had tragic reasons to do bad, and Nagato not only assured them that they are moving on and atoning by aiding their allies but also allow them to aid him in his endeavours. They politely declined as they wanted to live a normal life away from conflict for most of the time, a decision Nagato respects.
  • Exclusive to Caster:
    • We all know the tale of Medea and her joining Jason and the Argonauts on their journey which ended with Medea killing her own children with Jason to spite him for disregarding her love for him. But this Medea is not that. Here in Kinoko Nasu's world, Medea has a more sympathetic portrayal with her murdering her kids is entirely omitted, starting out as a mage as good as her father King Aeetes. Medea was instead brainwashed by Aphrodite into being a Psycho Supporter for Jason in order to help him obtain the Golden Fleece from Aeetes whom she betrays by countering his magic and killing her brother Aspyrtus and dicing his remains in front of him, joining Jason onto the Argo. Later after gaining and losing the right to rule his homeland, Jason and Medea were forced to find refuge in Corinth where its king liked Jason and had him marry his daughter. Jason accepts and disregarded Medea while doing so, leading to her exile so in retaliation, she burned everyone alive in Jason's wedding but Jason himself. After that, she wanders the Greek lands with her ultimate fate up in the air, cementing her legend as the Witch of Betrayal and was made worthy to the Throne of Heroes.
      • It was initially believed that the other Medea would get along with Caster since they both are the same legend in a way and had similar experiences to relate to each other. Alas, the reality is that the other Medea is actually jealous of what Caster currently have: a loving husband, a caring Master and other supportive friends that accepts her far more than before, unlike her who died by losing everything for the sake of spiting Jason. Caster is very unnerved by the other Medea's presence, as she is what would happen if Caster never gotten the positive love she was granted as a Servant.
    • Caster is disappointed that Mordred does share her "father's" face but lacks the desired body she seeks. And even more so when Mordred asked to buy figurines of her "father" from her; sure she's an avid customer, but in Caster's eyes Saber is hers and hers alone. Speaking of...
    • Caster had taken up the hobby of building model-kits, which evolved from building mini-ships in a bottle and still continue that to both Chaldea and the Pantheons. Sometimes, the model-kits are in Saber's likeness which is seen as practice of her "dressing Saber up" skills, which can explain her trips to the House of Costumes for "research". Of course, she needs parts so she buys them from Sei Iori's shop be it for figurines and/or ships; it took a while to get used to the kid since she still isn't used to the presence of good-natured males and even then, Sei's mother Rinko has a better chance of smoothing the transactions.
    • On that note, Caster has a distrust in men stemming from her past with Jason and being summoned by Galliasta and the only men she's okay with are her husband, Sei, the aforementioned men she and said husband befriended and Junpei (we'll get to him later). This got her in contact with Boa Hancock and Tenko Chabashira who also distrusted men; Hancock can see why Rider and Caster wouldn't like each other too much and try to be their mediator should all three be in the same place with some degree of success and Tenko vows to vanquish any men who would harass Caster even though Caster is stronger than her by magical potent but she appreciates the concern nonetheless and would rather have Tenko safe instead. Cersei Lannister is an enemy Caster did not expect to make, as her hatred of other women and bad faith in other royalty is enough to distrust her, since she herself was the former Princess of Colchis.
    • As she is also a gorgeous witch, Caster got along with Charmcaster and Nine the Phantom who has undergone Heel Face Turns of their own and they both help her move on from both her past and the weight of her actions in the Fifth Grail War, though Caster is a little baffled at Nine's relationship with Jubei that sired Kokonoe. Oddly enough, Caster also managed to befriend Elphaba Thropp despite her abrasive attitude and the former's beauty being a sore spot as they both were misunderstood witches whose actions dictate their reputations, though Elphaba does not lie when Caster had done some murders out of her own accord in order to be with her husband.
      • The yellow-eyed Medusa was surprised to learn about Medea's history in magic and she also had to assure her that she was nothing like Rider since she only wanted to learn about her craft and the Holy Grail. So far, Medea has entertained her enough but not to a compromising level for Ritsuka as she seems no better than herself, Rider nor any other villain she knows.
    • Caster is pretty sore towards Arcueid, since one incident has the latter stole the former's magical staff to become the magical girl "Phantasmoon". Now that Arcueid wants to be Phantasmoon yet again, Caster tries to place a spell that makes it so that only she can use the staff; alas, that is still not enough since Arcueid can still use it and Caster is left bawling again.
    • Caster met Junpei Iori while she once visited Elysium Academy to drop off her husband's lunch. Junpei is reminded of his girlfriend Chidori whose Persona is named after her, or at least shares a name with her when she introduced herself; reminded of her own love with her husband, Caster tells Junpei in a rare moment of kindness that even if he and Chidori can't be together, their feelings for each other can't be severed by anyone which Junpei strangely felt better from being told that.
  • Exclusive to Kuzuki:
    • Before his life in Fuyuki City, Souichirou Kuzuki started his life raised in an isolated organization training children to become flawless, professional assassins. He and his peers were taught early on skills required for killers and that they are ultimately tools to be used to kill, the latter enforced with deliberately not teaching basic social skills to maintain their efficiency. His cover was a schoolteacher at Homurahara Academy, teaching World History and Ethics there. When he did kill his target... it was with ease. He became so broken over how years of his life training to be an assassin culminated into an uneventful pay-off, so he decided to live the rest of it in his schoolteacher cover. At least, until meeting Caster at the foot of the temple when he finally felt something within him other than monotomy and decided to follow whatever she wishes in order to stay with her.
    • He is good at his teaching job even though it was a cover. The sub-House of Teachers are impressed at his work performance despite his assassin background and stern exterior, with Skinner and McGonagall appreciating it with praise; Skinner propose Kuzuki to introduce more intimidating tactics in getting students to behave though Kuzuki politely decline as he sees it as not worth the risk. Kuzuki obviously has no respect for Miss Trunchbull for being a worse teacher than he is and Mr. Crocker for giving students Fs often for kicks as it invalidates the students' hardwork. They both tread lightly with Kuzuki as he knows moves that can lethally incapacitate normal people, though Trunchbull thinks he shouldn't be a teacher since his old past is acknowledged.
    • As he later on gained a guilty conscience, Kuzuki related to Gunvolt and Heero Yuy who also had some good underneath their stoic exteriors along with getting better with the women they loved though they know it's debatable with Kuzuki. Gunvolt knows he's in contact with Stella and Dystnine but decided to let that slide as they haven't really do anything extreme yet and Kuzuki is saddened that Heero killed a little girl he met by accident and he wonders if he wouldn't be the man he is today should it ever happened to him. Megamind also related to the former assassin on experiencing empty accomplishments and says he'll be there if he needs it.
    • Other assassins and hitmen like Ezio Auditore di Firenze, Mordecai Heller, Duke Togo and Agent 47 are disappointed that Kuzuki is one just for one hit rather than as a profession, and he likewise refuses to associate with them in turn as he actually regretted the lifestyle. Mordecai can understand Kuzuki's love for his wife as he also cares for his family but the friendliness unfortunately stop there. Some people even compared him to Kenshiro due to learning a martial art and being very stoic muscled men; Kenshiro meets Kuzuki and spared him from his Hokuto Shinken, because he's glad that he's largely stopped killing and he wasn't doing it out of sick fun either along with respecting Kuzuki's love for his wife, somberly reminded of his own love life.
    • As Kuzuki does not develop social skills in order to have efficient training, Isuzu Sento relates to him on that front. She sees how sweet he and Caster can be even if he doesn't react much as well as knowing about their past actions and wishes she and Kanie would be more affectionate like them if they ever get together romantically; it's also why she always invite the couple to the park she works at both for revenue and to give them a happy time.
  • "You shall disappear here and now."
  • "It is fine to assume that the Master's role is to support the battle from the back. But there are always exceptions. There are Masters who can only fight head on."

    Mister Miracle and Big Barda 
Scott Free and Barda, Divine Strong Girl, Smart Guy Pairing (Scott: Mister Miracle | Barda: Big Barda)
Left-Big Barda, right-Mister Miracle
  • Intermediate God and Goddess
  • Symbol: A male symbol inside the hoop of a female symbol.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio(both): Our Gods Are Different, Tiny Guy, Huge Girl, Happily Married
  • Domains: Freedom, Optimism, Love, Divinity (both), Escape Artistry, The Life Equation (Mister Miracle), Warriors, Defection (Big Barda)
  • Superior: Jack Kirby
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Despite the dystopia of Apokolips and its residents seeming Always Chaotic Evil, a couple proved that even love and heroism can bloom from it. Big Barda was the original leader of the Female Furies, Miracle Miracle was the son of Highfather traded to Darkseid in a peace agreement and raised in an Orphanage of Fear. They fell in love, and ended up defecting from Darkseid's forces and becoming superheroes.
  • Their ascension did not sit well with Darkseid or the forces of Apokolips, due to two more major New Gods having risen to the pantheon to oppose him. The Love That Moves The Stars had a completely opposite opinion; He adores them for being a premiere example of how The Power of Love triumphs over evil and along with Cosmos, welcomed them with open arms.
  • Big Barda was apparently influenced by Jack Kirby's wife, which is why in the pantheon he pays special attention to her and her husband. She spends a lot of her time in the House of Fighting and Combat fighting and training, where she became a friend of Elena and Chun-Li. Scott Free is the multiverse's greatest escape artist, which makes him immune to the Anti-Life Equation. Many evil deities in the House of Mind Control grumbled at this.
  • Shockingly enough, Zamasu of all people initially acted civil on first meeting the couple. The reason for this is that they actively rebelled against an evil god's ways, and Zamasu already hates Darkseid for being an (openly) evil god, and doing it for good reasons. This almost immediately fell apart when he soon ranted about how Humans Are Bastards and his own ego, ranted that they shouldn't be hanging out with mortals, and they were disgusted by the destruction he wrought for the sake of so-called justice.
  • YHVH never even bothered with the pleasantries as while He is at least not immoral to inflict purposeful suffering, they represent freedom opposed to His dictatorial order. And as far as the couple is concerned, He is practically as bad as Darkseid. They feel the same about Palpatine and Malthael, and oppose the Divine Power's cruel ambitions for humanity.
  • Lucifer has proposed an alliance of both the two and New Genesis as a whole, because they would naturally oppose YHVH and are champions of free will and freedom, Mister Miracle literally being the god of such. They declined because they couldn't condone a number of the amoral actions Lucifer has done, though will side if it's needed to stop truly vile and powerful forces of order and chaos. Such as Yaldabaoth and Galeem or Don Thousand and Dharkon, the latter two Lucifer can't stand even if they represent chaos.
  • The God known by Bob proved much more reasonable and respectful of the couple, as did Shin. They are glad to see more benevolent and powerful New Gods ascend. Auriel ended up siding with Big Barda and Mister Miracle since she lives to preserve hope, something that puts her against Darkseid and has her agree with their own philosophy about freedom and liberty.
  • Sage Harpuia respects Big Barda for leaving the tyranny of Darkseid, as he eventually realized that Copy X was corrupt and left that dictatorship. Angel relates to her as like Big Barda, she defected for love. The two are quite well-respected by Gomez and Morticia Adams for their love. They also find themselves relating a lot to the romantic dynamic with Meryl Silverburgh and Johnny Sasaki.

Lesser Gods

    Akihito Kanbara and Mirai Kuriyama 
Akihito Kanbara and Mirai Kuriyama, Divine Couple of Suffering Numerous Ordeals (Akihito: The Immortal Half-Youmu; Mirai: Bespectacled Beauty)

  • Opposed by: The Hunter (Mirai only), Tohka Todo (Akihito only)
  • Pities: Sasuke Uchiha (Mirai only)
  • Training Dummy for: The House of Hunters (Akihito only)
  • A half-human, half-youmu hybrid, Akihito Kanbara lived a seemingly normal life until one day when he encountered mysterious girl named Mirai Kuriyama standing on top of the roof of his school roof. Believing that Mirai was going to jump, Akihito rushed to the rooftop in an attempt to save her... only to be stabbed through his chest by a sword made from Mirai's own blood. From there, their relationship began when she started to use Akihito as target practice due to his immortality and developed when Akihito started accompanying Mirai on her youmu hunts. Their relationship would take a hit when it was revealed that Mirai was originally given the task of assassinating Akihito in order to prevent his youmu side, Beyond the Boundary, from breaking through and potentially destroying the world. However, Mirai, having fallen in love with Akihito, decided to sacrifice herself by absorbing Beyond the Boundary, wiping herself from existence. Things only get complicated when it's later revealed that Beyond the Boundary brought her back to life at the cost of her memories, forcing Akihito to distance himself from her so that she lives a normal life, followed by Mirai eventually regaining her memories only to be possessed by a parasite youmu, causing her to try to kill Akihito and his friends. Suffice to say, it has not been smooth sailing for these two.
    • Intrigued by the amount of abuse that Akihito and Mirai had suffered through within their universe, the Court of the Gods had the couple hauled before them and told to explain their story to the Court. After providing the Court with detailed description of the events that occurred during their time as a couple, the Court briefly dismissed the pair while they determined the couple's fate. Fearing that there was a mistake and that they were going to be kicked out of the pantheon, the couple was pleasantly surprised to find out that they were instead going to be deified for all of the troubles that they had been put through... and subsequently mortified when they found out that Akihito's mother, who had shown up to the Court in her most provocative Cat Girl suit, had testified on the couple's half. Needless to say, the pair was a lot less enthusiastic about their ascension now that they know how they managed to get in.
  • Due to her clan's notoriety back in her world, Mirai was expecting to face similar treatment when she heard about the House of Hunters. To her surprise, she not only didn't face such treatment when she showed up at the the House of Hunters ond day, she ended up being highly valuable to the House due to herpowers and her track record with hunter spirits. Out of all of the hunters within the House, Mirai found herself more often than not hunting with the Monster Hunters, who, in addition to inviting Mirai to a number of their hunting excursions, have offered Mirai private access to their Felyne Kitchen, which the perpetually-hungry Mirai eagerly accepted.
    • That said, not all of the hunters have been so welcoming of Mirai's presence. In particular, the Hunter of Yharnam has repeatedly avoided Mirai due to her blood-manipulation powers, primarily out of concern for Mirai potentially getting infected by the tainted blood that has plagued Yharnam and fear for what kind of monster Mirai would turn into should she ever come into contact with the tainted blood.
    • In contrast with Mirai's decent relationship with a good number of the House's members, Akihito has a rather antagonistic relationship with the hunters of the pantheon since they keep using him a practice dummy for their weapons. Hoping to appease him, the denizens of House of Hunters told Akihito that they would stop using him as a practice dummy the moment they finally manage to hunt and kill all of the beasts that inhabit the panthon. This has only infuriated Akihito even further since the various pantheonic beasts were just as immortal as he was.
  • Due to the lack of a Spirit World Warriors Society within the pantheon, the couple usually get most of their spirit-hunting assignments from the Paranatural Activity Club due to the group's job of keeping spirits within the town of Mayview in line. While the Activity Club has not shied away from assisting the couple on more than one occasion, they would be lying if they said that Mirai's powers and Akihito's youmu side didn't unnerve the group a little. Except for the anime-obsessed Isaac of course, who thought that the couple were unbelievably awesome.
  • Given the fact that a youmu within their world known as the Hollow Shadow once possessed Akihito, which caused Beyond the Boundary to temporarily break free and wreak havoc, the couple have been constanly looking over their shoulder for any deities that were capable of Demonic Possession such as Pazuzu and Killer BOB. While Pazuzu has not shown much interest in the two, Killer BOB is more than eager to unleash Beyond the Boundary upon the pantheon, figuring that the massive amount of devastation and chaos caused would net him a mountain of garmonbozia. The only reason that BOB hasn't been successful so far is that everytime he possesses Akihito, Mirai quickly stabs Akihito and uses her blood to expel the supernatural entity from Akihito's body. Sure it usually leads to Beyond the Boundary breaking free and destroying everything in the immediate vicinity, but everyone can agree that it's still preferable than letting someone like BOB take control of it.
  • As someone who's capable of weaponizing their own blood, Mirai found it quite unpleasant when she encountered fellow blood manipulators within the pantheon who weren't nearly as benevolent as Mirai was:
    • The first two were Jedah Dohma and Skarlet, whom Mirai had the misfortune of encountering while she was hunting a monster out in the House of Slaughter. Seeing her as a potential threat to his attempts to saving the world of Makai because of her status as a Spirit World Warrior, Jedah immediately attacked Mirai when she ventured near the House of Blood and Gore, with Skarlet joining in on the fight in order to acquire some of Mirai's blood for her own use. Unable to beat the combine strength of both deities, Mirai had to forfeit the hunt and hastily retreat from the House altogether.
    • The next blood manipulator she encountered was Carmine Prime, who ended up incurring her wrath one day when he started wailing on Akihito after he accidentally looked at Carmine the wrong way. Unlike her previous fight with Jedah and Skarlet, Mirai's fight with Carmine was much more one-sided on Mirai's part, consisting of Mirai injecting her sword into Carmine and and spraying her blood through him, killing the in-birth instantly.
    • Another blood manipulator that she encountered was Gibril, whom Mirai came across while she hunting for a monster in the House of Philosophy. When she finally tracked down the monster, she discovered that not only was Gibril there draining its blood in order to fuel her Septima, but she had also did this to a number of people back in Gibril's world, essentially reducing them to zombies. Disgusted, Mirai immediately attacked her, only to be subdued captured by Gibril, who planned draining Mirai's blood to see what effects it would have on Metallon. It was only through a timely intervention from a group of Monster Hunters after Akihito had informed them of Mirai's location that Mirai was able to see another day.
  • Being the last surviving member of the Kurta Clan himself, Kurapika was able to find some common ground with Mirai, whose clan was also wiped out by people who envied their ability. Sympathizing with Kurpika's attempts to bring his clan's killers to justice, Mirai has even agreed to lend her aid to Kurapika against Chrollo Lucilfer and any other Phantom Troupe members should they ever find a way into the pantheon. While she also pities Sasuke Uchiha due to how his clan was wiped out by his brother, the ninja has mostly earned her scorn because of his decision to join Orochimaru, which Mirai considers to be unforgivable.
  • Akihito, being the host for an exceptionally powerful and destructive youmu, has befriended Yuya Sakaki after the duelist managed to make Akihito laugh during on his many duels in the pantheon. Their friendship was cemented further after Akihito learned that Yuya was the reincarnated version of a highly destructive being known as Zarc and that his friend Yuzu was reincarnated to prevent Zarc's plans from succeeding, which made Akihito realize that Yuya and Yuzu were just as abnormal as Akihito and Mirai were. As a result, Akihito, along with Mirai, can often be seen attending their duels and cheering for either Yuya or Yuzu.
  • Having a rather intense glasses fetish, Akihito has paid disturbingly large amounts of money to see pictures of various bespectacled goddesses within the pantheon, with Mirai and Tohka Todo being the subject of the vast majority of said photos. Unfortunately for Akihito, Tohka, after finding out about the photos, was waiting for Akihito at his temple, where she proceeded to remove her glasses and beat the half-youmu senseless.
  • Whenever she isn't hunting demons, Mirai is usually tending to her bonsai trees near the House of Nature. This has endeared the Spirit World Warrior to Jet Black, who was ecstatic that he finally found someone in the pantheon who enjoyed tending to bonsai trees as much as he did. He was a little less ecstatic that Mirai was using most of her money to buy and maintain said trees, keeping her in Perpetual Poverty. Not wanting Mirai to end up like the rest of the Bebop, Jet has taken to letting Mirai tend to his own trees in order to ensure that she doesn't bankrupt herself on buying even more bonsai trees.

  • Chihiro Furuya is high school student with an obsession with zombies, buying zombie movies, video games, and merchandise. He even dreams of having a zombie girlfriend! A few days after his pet cat Babu dies in an accident, Chihiro looks into a manuscript that explains how to make a "Resurrection" (or more accurately, reanimation) potion, and works to create the potion to bring Babu back from the dead. During this period of time, Chihiro would meet and befriend a girl named Rea Sanka, a young girl from a wealthy and famous family who suffered from having her life controlled by her father and was even the object of his incestuous lust, who shows interest in Chihiro's reanimation potion and offers her aid in making it. After hearing his passion for zombies, Rea has Chihiro promised that if she ever became a zombie, he would take care of her, a promise that would end up coming true sooner than expected when Rea drinks the reanimation potion in a failed attempt to commit suicide, before her father accidently kills her by knocking her off a cliff and crashing onto a tree branch mid-fall. From that point onward, Chihiro vows to fulfill his promise to Rea when she comes back to life as a zombie while retaining her mind.
  • After going through many struggles, such as Chihiro attempting to preserve Rea's body and preventing her from succumbing to Horror Hunger (which incidentally gets his heart eaten by Rea, leading him to get an artificial replacement), Chihiro and Rea were offered an invitation to the Pantheon due to the gods showing in their love story and the circumstances behind it. Rea, interested in the offer, accepts immediately with Chihiro agreeing to accompany her. There, they became of the Divine Duo of Romances between the Living and the Dead.
  • To say Chihiro and Rea's relationship within the Pantheon is divisive is quite the understatement. Zombie Apocalypse survivors are disgusted with it, given how they came close to being mauled to death several times by zombies, something that almost happened to Chihiro at one point. Yet at the same time, there are also deities who believe that, even if they don't approve of the circumstances behind the relationship, it's certainly better than Rea's life living under her father's oppressive thumb, especially considering how he sexually abuses her and doesn't give her a normal life.
    • Emily notes that the relationship between the two was no different from how she fell in love with Victor, and also points out how people had wanted her to get married to Victor without actually considering the consequences. She nevertheless does support the two's relationship after seeing just how much Chihiro cares for Rea, being one of the few who does so.
    • Understandably, the pair aren't fond of Ouranus, who reminds them of Rea's father Dan'Ichiro, with the only difference being Ouranus bedded his mother. The fact that he was castrated also reminds the two how Dan'Ichiro tried to castrate him as well. Other deities were disgusted upon hearing Rea's life under her father, seeing him as one of worst parents to have. The fact that he's no longer antagonistic towards Chihiro and is accepting of the two's relationship does nothing to change their minds.
    • Ash Williams is so far the most accepting of the pair among Zombie Apocalypse survivors, though he is a little concerned about Rea's Horror Hunger every now and then after hearing about the incident between her and Chihiro. Dr. Olivia Moore, who is also a Friendly Zombie like Rea, has heard of how Rea can apparently regained her memories eating Chihiro's heart, has offered to teach Rea how gain memories from eating brains.
    • Bonnie Hood is absolutely disgusted with the pair, Rea for being a zombie and Chihiro for loving and protecting her. However, deities in the Pantheon have kept her from making attempts to kill them, including deities who don't like the relationship or are conflicted with it since even they don't like Bonnie Hood.
  • Currently, Rea is staying at a temple in the House of Unliving Beings, either accepting visits from her friends (especially Chihiro) or occasionally leaving to meet her caretaker, with Chihiro being her escort. Currently deities from the House of Plants are gathering Hydrangea Leaves to give to Rea, since the toxins in them are the best source of sustenance for her and deities in the Houses of Science, Magic, and Knowledge are currently researching methods to help Rea avoid succumbing to Horror Hunger again and attacking people, as well as to prevent her body from decaying.
    • There have been attempts from the Pantheon to restore Rea to a living girl again, from Nagato using the Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique, to other deities making a wish to Shenron or Prismo. Some of these attempts don't work at all, either because it's beyond their power or it can only work temporarily. Rea has already gotten used to being a zombie, though she does appreciate other people's efforts to give her a living body and hopes one day they can succeed, admitting she would like to be able to enjoy the sensations other people can experience (such as tasting human food, or feeling hot or cold).
    • During her off-days, Rea tends to scare people as the White Witch by demanding body parts for her to eat in exchange for granting wishes. Jack Skellington does praise her for this, offering to have her taken to Halloween Town and have her take part in the festivities.
    • Rea tends to speak with other undead characters in the Pantheon, such as Rottytops, Hsien-Ko, Sans and Papyrus, Daniel Fortesque, and Héctor. Rea gets along with Rottytops the most as a fellow zombie, since she is one of the few zombies who retains her sanity due to specific circumstances, in her case, by drinking coffee. Rottytops acts as a Cool Big Sis to Rea and promises to help her adapt to life as a zombie. Héctor, as a father, was outraged when he heard about how Rea was treated by her father, making it clear that if it were up to him, Dan'Ichiro would never have over Rea alive or dead again. He does show his support for Chihiro after how he was a good friend to Rea, promising to support him no matter what.
  • Chihiro tends to visit the House of Health and Diseases to check on his artificial heart and blood every now and then, since being bitten by Rea so many times had caused some of the zombie poison to enter his bloodstream and allow him to survive many things that would kill a normal human being, even keeping him alive long enough to get an artificial heart transplant.
  • The young zombie was fascinated by the Phantom Thieves of Hearts after hearing how they make criminal and corrupt authority figures feel remorse for their actions. The Phantom Thieves quickly befriended Rea and Chihiro, letting the former know how if they knew Dan'Ichiro was treating Rea and even threatend to castrate Chihiro just for coming near her, they would have changed his heart as well. Haru finds Rea's struggles similar to her own, but she finds Dan'Ichiro more horrifying due to his lust for his daughter, while Rea is horrified that Haru's father tried to force her to marry an obvious Domestic Abuser.
  • Ironically, despite his passion for zombies, Chihiro is afraid of ghosts and other things involving live horror such as haunted houses. Because of this, he avoids going to the House of Ghosts, though he admits his little sister would have loved to go there. Because of this, Chihiro has earned the friendship of Ragna, Alice, Mako, Luigi, and Mio for their shared fear of ghosts.
    • This irony even extends to Captain Gregg and Lucy Muir's relationship, considering how this couple can be considered a foil to Chihiro and Rea's relationship. Chihiro is among the living with a zombie love interest, while the initially living Lucy has a ghost love interest. While Chihiro does survive and live alongside Rea, Lucy ends up together in death with Gregg. Chihiro, still afraid of ghosts, finds it uncomfortable being near Gregg, even after being reassured he's friendly. Rea is far more accepting of their presence, while Lucy and Gregg feel sympathy for the zombie for the life she had to go through and are happy she at least found someone to care for her.
    • While Mio is willing to talk with Chihiro, she finds Rea absolutely scary, due to her fear of horror stuff. Seeing Rea as a zombie horrifies her and causes her to keep her distance, even after being told that she won't harm her.
  • Koume Shirasaka, as a horror enthusiast, loves Rea for being a zombie. Hearing about how Rea was raised by her father, who also threatened to castrate Chihiro just for being near her, reinforces Koume's discomfort with the living, stating without hesitation that Rea definitely deserves Chihiro far more than she does her father (and the fact that Rea's father is no longer antagonistic towards Chihiro does not change her mind at all). This made her fast friends with Chihiro as she promises to help him take care of Rea.

  • Pities: Elisabet Vogler (for Elisa)
  • Good Counterpart to: The Gill-man (The Asset)
  • During the Cold War in the early 1960’s, there was a mute woman name Elisa Esposito, who worked as a night-time janitor in a top secret research facility. Things changed for her when she discovered what her superiors call the Asset, an amphibious humanoid creature confined to a water tank. Elisa, out of loneliness, fascination, and sympathy for its torture at the hands of head security officer Richard Strickland, befriended and developed a relationship with the creature. They were chosen to represent Fantastic Romance after the Court of the Gods took notice of their story.
  • In many ways, they have been compared to Belle and the Beast with the most obvious being that both Belle and Elisa are in love with a monster (the Beast and the Asset respectively). Not only that, but they both stand up against their respective adversaries and end up with their true love. As such, the two couples get along pretty well. Additionally, both Elisa and the Asset have a disdain towards Gaston as his disregard towards the Beast reminds Elisa of Strickland’s mistreatment of the Asset.
  • The two seem to get along well with Hellboy, who would sometimes visit their temple. Elisa isn’t quite shocked with his appearance, having been used to the Asset. For Hellboy, something about the Asset has reminded him of his friend Abe Sapien, noting his similar looks.
  • They have also befriended Edward Scissorhands as he finds their relationship to be similar to his own relationship with Kim. Edward also understands their situation of coming from a society oppressing them. Elisa and the Asset also befriended Alana and Marko given their similar Interspecies Romance.
  • It’s no surprise that some deities believe that the Asset is related to the Gill-man, especially considering their similarities to each other. For the Gill-man, he saw Elisa as a potential mate, which led to him attempting to snatch her. The Asset didn’t take that well, and the two amphibious creatures engaged in a showdown, which ended with the Gill-man retreating. Since then, the Asset has been keeping an eye on the Gill-man in case he goes after Elisa again. On the other hand, they seem to be on better terms with another fish-like creature, Rikuo.
  • Elisa is good friends with Amélie Poulain due to both of them being quirky, but introverted women. Amusingly enough, Amélie is fascinated with seeing Elisa and the Asset together.
  • Elisa can not talk given that as a child, she was found in a river with wounds on her neck. As such, she usually communicates through use of sign language.
    • Saoirse visited the two’s temple out of curiosity. Upon encountering Elisa, she is reminded of herself, particularly due to both of them being mute (well, Saoirse was for a while) and their connection with aquatic creatures. Since then, she has been hanging out with her every now and then despite the age difference. Of course, Saoirse would sometimes invite her older brother, Ben, as well.
    • As the Goddess of Adorable Muteness, Sona Buvelle sometimes visit Elisa and the Asset’s temple to play some music for them.
    • Elisa is pretty sorry for Elisabet Vogler given the latter’s situation, even though Elisabet’s muteness comes from her unwillingness to talk.
  • Unfortunately, there are some deities who are interested in experimenting on the Asset. Among those people, they include Albert Wesker, Mesogog, and Hermaeus Mora. In particular, Wesker is fascinated with the Asset as he reminds him of the Hunter Gamma variants he has experimented on. Elisa has been trying her best to keep the Asset away from them.

  • Complicated Relationship: Catra, The Diamond Authority
  • Oppose: Rau Le Creuset, YHVH
  • Opposed by: Shadow Weaver
  • Interested in:
  • Hordak and Entrapta are an odd pair, both came from completely different backgrounds, with Hordak being a defective and abandoned clone of Horde Prime, Lord of the Known Universe and Entrapta was a princess raised by robots in the mechanical-oriented Kingdom of Dryl. Both met when Entrapta defected to the Horde out of interest in their mechanical creations and believing that the other princesses in the Alliance left her because they didn't like her; at first Entrapta was forbidden from entering Hordak's sanctum but when she proved her intellect and skill by repairing many flaws in it, Hordak began to warm up to her eventually falling in love with her, as did Entrapta in return.
    • Unfortunately, both were separated when Catra banished Entrapta for trying to stop Hordak from opening a portal that could endanger reality itself simply because she wanted to win and be appreciated for once. Later Hordak was mind-wiped by Horde Prime when the latter arrived on Etheria but despite that, Hordak's feelings persisted eventually allowing him to defy Prime and kill his main body when the latter tried to get him to kill Entrapta as a show of loyalty which ended in Prime performing a Body Surf to Hordak's body to finish the job of taking over the Heart of Etheria, luckily when Adora/She-Ra freed Hordak from Horde Prime's spirit, the former was able to show his inner goodness and reconciliated with Adora as he had saved her life when she was a baby and allowing him to happily reunite with Entrapta for good.
  • Both were ascended after the defeat of Horde Prime, since what status their relationship ended in was left pretty ambiguous, while some sources have said that they have upgraded to a full item, neither of them has clarified whether they've done so or not. Nonetheless, their romantic attraction is very, very obvious and pretty much all who know them can see that they're in love with one another. As for what they're doing in the mortal world to atone for their actions, Adora and Catra have told their allies that Hordak and Entrapta are currently helping clean up the mechanical messes and monstrosities on Beast Island, bonding more along the way while they fix the mess that both contributed for a long time to make.
  • Upon ascension they found themselves reunited with Adora and Catra. While Hordak and Adora's enmity has ended thanks to Adora and Hordak remembering the day that Hordak saved her as a baby and Adora saving Hordak from Horde Prime in return, Catra is still on iffy terms with Hordak. That said they've began opening up about their trauma to each other, and have even began to understand their respective issues and form a connection over them, that Entrapta has forgiven Catra is also another factor into the two mending fences eventually.
    • Adam/He-Man was at first in pure disbelief from seeing the two as a redeemed couple, given that the two usually aren't good guys let alone in love with the other in other universes, regardless he made allies with them once he got to know them personally, even appreciating that Hordak proved that he was never destined for evil.
  • Upon ascending they weren't happy at all to see Horde Prime back to life, remembering the pain and suffering they went through due to his actions, especially Hordak as Prime's abuse of his clone is the prime cause of all his emotional turmoil and problems as well as nearly forcing him to kill Entrapta to prove Hordak's loyalty to him, only for Hordak to refuse to follow his creator's orders anymore and kill his main body afterwards. Prime himself returns the sentiment, hoping to kill both in the most painful way he can think of once he gets the chance.
  • Since both opposed a great space empire, despite at some point being a part of it they earned enemies in those who lead or are members of an evil empire, especially the Galactic Empire and its leadership: Emperor Palpatine and Grand Moff Tarkin, both being sadistic evil masterminds who treated clones they employed as armies with utter disdain despite their years of service, and anyone who worked for them in general. Palpatine especially got this as he deprived the Clone Troopers of their free will to kill the Jedi, including those who were friends and then leaving those who didn't follow him afterwards to rot in the streets, which reminded Hordak of how Prime would often suppress his free will and left him to die for his "defect".
  • Due to both getting a form of redemption through love started by a mutual understanding and respect of one another and their issues, they got allies who had similar developments: among them were Rose Quartz and Greg Universe, since Greg was just a normal Earth musician who fell in love with Rose Quartz, a former member of the Diamond Authority when she was known as Pink Diamond, and leader of the Crystal Gems, with both learning many valuable things from the other. In turn, both had an uneasy meeting with the Diamond Authority, whose previous actions reminded them of Horde Prime's own, including White Diamond's Mind Rape which she used to do to those she felt were too rebellious or imperfect for her standards, while they've reformed ever since Hordak still feels uneasy about approaching them and as such keeps his distance of them, though Entrapta has not as much of an issue with them herself.
  • Due to their experiences against Horde Prime, they loathe all who wish to suppress free will no matter what the reason is, chief among those enemies was Darkseid, the Dark Lord of Apokolips being infamous for his ultimate goal of achieving control over all other living beings through the Anti-Life Equation; his partner, Lucemon, also earned that hatred for having similar goals and assisting Darkseid's own. Big Brother and The IT also earned their scorn for their opposition to free will and thought, given that Hordak and Entrapta both had to go through a lot of pain to be allowed to live as they wanted to, Galeem who imprisons others to put the world at a standstill "order" was also one of many others to join the ranks of enemies of Hordak and Entrapta. And finally there's YHVH, whose ultimate goal is absolute order and control over existence not unlike Darkseid, which has secured the evil God's place in the list of beings loathed the most by the duo.
    • Those who rebelled against authorities to be free or out of love earned Hordak and Entrapta's friendship, on the other hand; among these were Angel an experiment of Juba who stopped doing evil out of love for Stitch, Peridot a former Homeworld Gem who eventually rebelled against the Diamond Authority and helped the Crystal Gems in toppling the Gempire to live free of the oppressive system. Others included Jake Sully and Zuko who defected against more colonialist authorities because it was the right thing to do, Hordak's past as a conqueror initially led to some friction, but Zuko bonded with Hordak over their abusive parents and Sully did over falling in love with one of the would-be victims of his former faction, as such the most of the friction has fizzled out as time passed.
  • While they're sympathetic to clones in the Pantheon, they have their limits on which clones their sympathy extends to, one who didn't have such privilege was Rau Le Creuset, who in spite of his problems as a clone and insecurities has decided to use it as an excuse to harm others all on his own and prefers to spitefully kill everyone, even those not involved in his tragic past. While Hordak himself did used to be a conqueror, he never quite used his clone status as a way to harm others, even letting Entrapta know about it once he trusted her enough, furthermore he would never think of spitefully wanting all other living beings dead. As such both Entrapta and Hordak prefer not to associate with Creuset and instead oppose any and all plans he makes.
  • Shadow Weaver opposes both heavily, as she lost her position in part due to Entrapta's recruitment making Hordak see Weaver as inept, and Hordak for being the leader of the Horde she initially opposed and for imprisoning her. While Hordak's gotten better as a person, as has Entrapta, Weaver has not and therefore she was shocked to see no one supporting her opposition to the duo, even more when they told her that the two were better people than she ever was, she has plotted to be rid of the two one day when she becomes more powerful with magic.
  • As they're a couple made of two beings who to the other would be unattractive, they made up some allies in Xibalba and La Muerte, Belle and the Beast and Elisa Esposito and the Asset. Belle and Beast particularly found some interesting parallels regarding Hordak's and Beast's "sanctums" and how both Entrapta and Belle, respectively helped each of them open up about themselves and show that they were more than meets the eye at first glance.
  • Exclusive to Hordak:
    • In spite of all his actions as the leader of the Horde, Hordak has one major virtue that never went away: a benevolence towards his underlings as long as said underlings didn't actively hinder his operations or conspired against him, to the point that many of the former Horde soldiers were glad to take the position of heralds in Hordak's temple, still having fond memories of the friendships they made in the Horde. Many deities were perplexed by how Hordak allowed free will and his soldiers to have lives of their own without any major restrictions like Prime did, and despite Hordak claiming in the past that he viewed them as pawns, there's some who believe he was simply trying to dethatch himself from his troops purely to imitate Prime but never quite believed in that mentality himself, which Hordak seems to agree with to some degree.
    • Due to his status as a clone with severe self-esteem issues due to his origins, he ended up striking an understanding with Riku Asakura/Ultraman Geed, the son/clone of Ultraman Belial who likewise had some personal issues stemming from being used as a weapon-of-sorts by his father, Ultraman Belial, not unlike how Horde Prime used Hordak like he did to his other clones. While Riku himself has some mixed feelings about Hordak due to his past as a conqueror, the shared issue of being a clone with identity problems let the two become allies in the end.
    • Since she also is a clone who has issues in regards to her identity and was able to break her programming to be more than what she was created for, Lea became an ally of Hordak when the two discussed their pasts and the things they went through during their lives and how they finally proved that they were independent people from the one person who they are a clone of with their own feelings and lives that they chose. Lea was even touched by hearing that Hordak personally tried to make sure that his inhuman creator and "brother" Horde Prime was defeated.
    • Boba Fett was another clone with independent thoughts and actions, however unlike Hordak who was considered by Prime to be a mere pawn to be used, Jango cared deeply about Boba, seeing his clone as a son, Boba felt disgusted to hear how Prime treated Hordak and offered sincere empathy to Hordak over it. While Hordak initially had some issues allying with Boba, the latter's recent takes of kinder qualities and actions have eased up how they get along, allowing the two to be allies. Another Star Wars deity he befriended was Anakin Skywalker, who like Hordak proved his turn to good by killing his former master throwing him into a deep pit to his doom, with both cases narrowly failing due to backup plans from said masters, Anakin was glad that Hordak managed to keep his Love Interest safe, unlike Anakin who killed Padme in a moment of uncontrolled anger which he regretted.
  • Exclusive to Entrapta:
    • As a mechanical genius with a knack for complex machinery and contraptions, Entrapta found an unusual ally in Fred Jones of the Mystery Gang, as Fred has an affinity and love for traps and trapping machines, Entrapta has often found herself giving him some advice on how to build more complex and powerful trapping machines for Mystery Inc to use in their many adventures and clashes with masked bad guys or even special traps to deal with the occasional real supernatural threats.
    • With her Prehensile Hair, she found an ally in Millia Rage, who is the Goddess of the trope itself, Millia was quite curious to hear that Entrapta's "magic" hair is actually a result of technological modifications that Entrapta did on herself, considering how Millia's own hair is fully magical in nature after she infused it with the Sixth Hi-Deigokutsuipou. Both have shared stories of themselves to one another, being fully interested in what the other has done in their many adventures. Other deities with prehensile hair who befriended her were Bayonetta and Jeanne, two witches who aren't evil and can weaponize their hair thanks to demonic assistance, like Millia they were intrigued by Entrapta's technologically enhanced hair, that her love interest, Hordak, was a demonic/vampiric looking creature also made them chuckle a bit, as they were reminded of some of the demons of inferno due to Hordak's appearance. Desna was another deity with prehensile hair, but unlike the others she got on Entrapta's bad graces due to her support of genocidal plans.
    • She's got a very big interest in cyborgs and robots, sometimes of the Robosexual kind. Among these cyborgs who she grew interested was Robocop, who has little of his organic body left after an accident, with the heavy machinery making up most of his body yet remaining human despite it all; Jax, who had to get cybernetic arms and other enhancements; Gigan who has scythes (and sometimes buzzaws) for hands, though the Kaiju's evil nature makes Entrapta take a more cautious approach to studying him; Finn the Human who has a bionic arm ever since he lost his temporary replacement arms; and finally Victor Stone/Cyborg, who like Robocop had to get cybernetic implants to keep him alive after a disaster that nearly took his life. Entrapta gets well along with all of them (except for Gigan) and has tried to study their technology with the others' consent, as she's learned to be more respectful of boundaries following her experiences in Etheria.

  • Lesser Goddesses, with Yomi bordering on Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Yomi's Umbrella and Ceri's Sword crossing each other.

  • Enemies:
  • Wary of: Flynn, Izanami, Kurama, all Assassins in the Pantheon (Ceri)
  • Evil Counterpart: Ainz Ooal Gown (Yomi)
  • The duo's ascension to the Pantheon began with a rather nasty misunderstanding: a routine patrol of Yomi's dungeon ended badly as a cracked warp stone caused them to be tossed into the Void Between the Worlds. Meanwhile, Flynn of the House of Personal Appearance was running diagnostics on the Yamato Reactor, and the small portal it created spit them out on the other end. Needless to say, this unexpected intrusion didn't sit well with Flynn in the slightest, particularly after the the Great Upheaval. While Ceri panicked and nearly crossed swords with the furious Samurai, which would have ended disastrously, Yomi kept her head and was able to explain they meant no ill will toward the machine, and Flynn took them to meet the powers that be so that they could work out the situation. To everyone's surprise, the interview revealed their latent divinity; having slept with so many of her servants, Yomi became the goddess of Unequal Pairing with Ceri as her 'other half', to Yomi's amusement and Ceri's mortification.
    • While Flynn has (mostly) gotten over their inadvertent 'break-in' to the Reactor Room, he still took a moment to tell the two how incredibly lucky they had been that he was the one working on it instead of the 'other guy'. The Demi-Fiend, after all, likely wouldn't have given Yomi an opportunity to explain herself, and even if he was in a good enough mood to hear them out, Ceri pointing a sword at him would have been an irrevocable death sentence.
    • While their ranks are the same, Ceri is on the lower end of the power level within that rank, and Yomi is on the higher end, reaching borderline Intermediate Goddess levels. There are those that thought that most of Ceri's power comes by being bound to Yomi, except Yomi never actually empowered Ceri as a servant, and Ceri has since been released from that contract anyway.
  • The first thing Yomi did after their temple was set up was to establish portal connection to her home world: she had already spent a length of time away after she was put under that sleeping spell, and she didn't want Sylvi, Isabella, and Charlotte to worry about her again. As soon as it was online, Yomi went to work on a new dungeon fit for a goddess: she plans to use every available resource in the Pantheon to make it her masterpiece. All except the random encounters. Those're going to be imported from her home world. Ceri helps on and off, spending most of her time exploring the Pantheon, dungeon-delving, training with other swordsmen and women and doing odd jobs as a proper adventurer should. Among her exploits are the Keeper's Dungeon and the Death Egg. Eggman has expressed irritation with her rampages through his base: that hedgehog is annoying enough, and now he has to deal with some "cosplayer" hacking up his robots and smashing his storage containers. They HAVE lids for a reason: there's no call to break them open to get at their contents. The knight has joined a couple of raiding parties for some of the tougher expeditions, fighting alongside and befriending the likes of Bell Cranel.
    • Ceri has been challenging herself in what more than a few gods and goddesses consider to be one of the most brutal 'dungeons' available to the Pantheon: the madness-addled, plague-ridden, monster-infested realm of Yharnam that has partially manifested in the House of Slaughter. Even with the occasional aid of a silent, saw-wielding man in a hat and coat who crosses paths with her from time-to-time (they first met when he pulled her armored butt out of the fire during her duel with that lunatic in the graveyard with the telescoping axe), she's still been beaten down more times than she cares to count. She persists regardless: according to Ceri, challenging and improving oneself against steep odds is the essence of humanity. Yomi is worried she'll get herself really hurt one day, and to be honest she doesn't like Ceri's new friend all that much; yes, he saved her life, and for that Yomi is very grateful, but the way he doesn't speak is a little off-putting, she noticed the way his hand twitched toward his gun when he saw her ears and tail, and she gets a strange, sinking feeling whenever Ceri talks about Yharnam that there's more to the city than her lover knows. That there's something about it that the Hunter doesn't want her to find out…
    • The Hunter quickly realized that Ceri's armor was, if anything, a detriment against the horrors of Yharnam; too clunky for full freedom of movement, but too fragile to offer a proper defense, to say absolutely nothing of the big 'insert razor-sharp claw/weapon here' spot right over her goddamned heart. As such, he procured her a basic Hunter Set. Ceri was glad to have an outfit that didn't show of an exorbitant amount of skin, and Yomi offered to send it to Isabella for enchanting, so that it would offer increased protection on top of mobility. Ceri realized her mistake in accepting the offer far too late, and to her dismay the Garb came back to her with a number of unwanted 'improvements' on top of the enchantments. She's at least glad Yomi didn't tell Isabella to do anything to the hat; to be fair, Ceri's not sure exactly how one DOES make a hat erotic, but in any case, the hat is perfect exactly as it is.
    • Speaking of armor, many gods laugh at her occasional insistence to default to her standard armor for protection, given how much 'protection' it actually gives, especially in regards to the frontal area where she's expected to be attacked from the most. And because she doesn't have Isabella as readily on-hand for each and every time the armor needs repairs in the Pantheon, she's taken the time to check out what else it offers, and makes absolutely sure to keep her findings out of Yomi's hands.
    • Ceri decided to put her exploration of Yharnam on indefinite hold after something particularly horrifying happened: she had been helping Isabella around Yomi's inn when Isabella accidentally cut her hand and began bleeding rather heavily. Ceri doesn't even remember the exact series of events, but one second she had noticed Isabella's injury, the next she had seized Isabella's hand and had begun slurping the blood down. It took half a day for Yomi to coax the mortified Ceri out of her room, after which Yomi made Ceri swear not to return to Yharnam until she was sure she could be inoculated against whatever the hell had just driven her to do such a thing. Ceri gave her word readily, terrified at the idea of what she was becoming. She got a solution earlier than she expected in the form of a decrepit, wheelchair-bound old man who offered to make her immune to the Scourge. She accepted readily, going to sleep looking forward to continuing her journey through Yharnam...and awoke on its streets, trapped in The Dream. Yomi tracked down Gehrman, serenely furious at his deception, and after a pitched battle between them, Yomi was left with no choice but to follow her lover's example and join the hunt, intending on helping Ceri see the journey through so that they can be free of the night.
    • As for other dungeons, other additions to Ceri's (and Yomi's) list are the Darkest Dungeon, King Togwaggle's Catacombs, and the Abyss.
  • Yomi spends quite a lot of off-time in the House of Love, allowing herself to be pampered. She especially enjoys the mud pools; they come very close to stacking up to the ministrations of the Mud Girls back home. She drags Ceri along with her every so often: while the adventurer appreciates not having to fend off amorous Mud Girls, Yomi insists on sharing a tub with her, and sometimes the fox gets a little grabby…
    • Other times, she goes to the Houses of Commerce and Costumes, hoping to add to her wardrobe of suggestive outfits; some of them she's certain she wouldn't be able to get at all in her home dimension. Of course, she drags Ceri along with her on these trips, much to the knight's chagrin.
  • Once approached the Pantheon's Anubis, thinking it was her old friend. She was thoroughly confused upon finally meeting the deity, given that this one was most definitely male and had a jackal head. It took a few seconds to clear up the misunderstanding: Yomi must've mistaken the god for his little sister.
  • Despite enjoying themselves in the Pantheon overall, the two have made a couple of enemies, Aconologia being prime among them. As if Vesta was bad enough, Acnologia's a dragon who takes the hatred of humans to a whole new level, and unlike Vesta, Yomi doesn't see either of them defeating the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse any time soon. She has sternly warned Ceri not to mess with him, and Ceri has taken it to heart.
    • Also somewhat nervous around Kurama. According to Yomi, the Kitsune back in her world are a lot smaller. And prettier. And not nearly as psychotically violent. While they're not enemies, she still gives him a wide berth.
    • On the topic of the aforementioned Keeper, Yomi doesn't like him at all. He used an imp to speak to her and suggest an alliance; he could use a powerful mage like her as a minion. She politely declined at first, having heard of his 'pedigree', but the Keeper persisted, finally noting she's not much more moral than he is; both magic to force enemies to obey against their will. Besides, he wasn't asking her to join him. He was just giving her a chance to come along willingly. At this assertion, Yomi calmly opened her umbrella, shouldered it, and then vaporized the imp with a Fire Twist. When next she saw Ceri, Yomi declared she would come along the next time the knight saw fit to attack the Keeper's Dungeon.
  • While Yomi doesn't import any monsters in the Pantheon to her dungeon, she (and Ceri) still has the Capture spell for taking down rowdier random encounters (as long as they're weaker than her) and returning to her prison cells later where they're transported (and proofed against thaumaturgic magic, divine interventions (read: prayers to gods), earthquakes, fires, slimes, and even temporal portals learning from when a Succubus she once captured used a portal to access her storage room). There, she negotiates with them, and later sets them free, or they sometimes join her (and Ceri) for a while, which is usually the case for (non-ascended) Pokémon and SMT demons. And given the dungeons Ceri goes to, the knight has convinced the fox spirit to at least let them tag along as "party members"; some dungeons may be more than any of Yomi's subordinates could handle, even the ones from the Abyss dimension Vesta once had.
  • They get along quite well with Rias Gremory and her peerage: Yomi is always moved when she sees a leader who treasures the thoughts and feelings of her underlings rather than using them as tools, and emphatically supports Rias' relationship with Issei. Ceri meanwhile has found a sparring partner in Kiba.
  • Were rather unnerved to find Izanami in the Pantheon, after having apparently defeated her down in the Abyss. To make matters worse, this Izanami is at full power. At the very least, Yomi acknowledges that Izanami is not evil, simply different in terms of morality, and is pleased to note that there are plenty to keep her suppressed should she try the fog thing again.
  • The two get along rather well with Luka and his wife Alice, though she is a little wary of the latter's affiliation with what Yomi considers an extremist group; they, like Yomi herself, support human-monster friendship and are open to romance should it come down to it. Luka enjoys Ceri's company; the two of them swap stories of their adventures from time-to-time (with Yomi and Alice close by to clear up any…embellishments that slip into the narrative), and because she's human she's immune to his 'good smell'. Luka was shocked and then immensely relieved when it became apparent that it didn't cause Yomi to pounce on him either; despite the scent, she doesn't swing that way. Unfortunately, while the scent didn't attract her to the human child, it did slowly get to her, and she began shooting amorous glances at Alice instead. Nowadays they try to meet separately to avoid any awkwardness.
  • Another swordswoman Ceri has befriended is Lumi: the two enjoy swapping adventuring stories and sparring to keep their skills sharp. Yomi meanwhile has offered her own support in taking down the God of Deep Jealousy by having some of her underlings, all Cute Monster Girls and all quite powerful in their own right, go down to the parallel world to join the fight. That's not the only thing the fox spirit has offered, though; a universal truth Yomi has learned in her centuries of being alive is that gay, straight or otherwise, skimpy clothing can act as a force multiplier for a sexual relationship. To Ceri's aggravation, Yomi has offered to hook Lumi up with some outfits Youta would just adore. Needless to say, Lumi's initial impression of Yomi being a wise, classy, elegant woman has been somewhat challenged by this: as lustful as the paladin can become, she has a feeling that Yomi is on a completely different level...
    • Once the God of Deep Jealousy was revealed to be a machine with Youta's childhood friend Nishina frozen as the core, Yomi immediately contacted Hiruko, a fox-girl alien with access to that sort of advanced technology. Unfortunately, Hiruko couldn't tell her anything of note: even for her, the idea of a machine that can 'curse' a planet's population to die at 20 is beyond even her own race's technology.
  • Among Ceri's sparring partners is William Adams, a trainer she chose because, she's ashamed to admit, his skill at battling Yōkai. Maybe, with the tricks he can teach her, she can finally defeat Yomi in a one-on-one fight. During an excursion into the warrens, Yomi was surprised to see Ceri employ an unfamiliar breathing technique, staying perfectly calm as she hacked her way through the swinefolk seeming without need to pause regain her footing. Ceri described this as 'ki pulse', a trick William taught her to prevent wasting stamina. Apparently she's hoping to get a Living Weapon, but no Guardian Spirit has bonded with her yet.
    • Another sparring partner is Ciri, and the two have become close friends. Despite Ciri only using a fraction of her abilities during their duels, Ceri realizes full well that the ashen-haired girl is beyond even Yomi, and is a little bitter in the knowledge that she will never, ever surpass her. Met Geralt as well during her trips to Ciri's temple; she, too, confused the Witcher for her friend William for a moment. Not to mention the time when Geralt called for Ciri and both swordswomen answered in unison, forcing a mildly annoyed Geralt to indicate who he was addressing.
  • Yomi was surprised to find a humanoid fox spirit like herself in the form of Ahri in the House of Power. The two enjoyed each others company. Oh boy did they enjoy each other's company.
  • The two had a run-in with The Dreaded Reaper, the bane of dungeon explorers. No one knows if the encounter was accidental or Ceri actively sought it out (more likely the former as Ceri's mostly gotten over her recklessness). Either way, she and Yomi barely escaped with their lives. Ceri would later say that the Reaper "made Ella and Emma look like insects".
  • Yomi is wary of Ainz Ooal Gown. Both happen to be leaders of a large gathering of monsters, have power to back up that leadership, are benevolent to their subordinates, and have mingled with select humans peacefully at some point (one or two for Yominote , an entire village, an adventuring party, and more for Ainz). The difference is that Ainz was once a powerless human before becoming what he is now, and Yomi was once very powerful before being greatly weakened by the time she was introduced in her story. Oh, and there's the whole opposing alignments deal, and how they regard humans (he looks down on them despite once being one, she finds them interesting even if she never was a human).
  • Ceri hates assassins, considering them underhanded and untrustworthy, too cowardly to face their enemies in an honorable fight, and willing to throw entire nations into turmoil with a well-placed blade for the sake of a little coin. Even relatively civil individuals like Ezio Auditore da Firenze get a wary gaze from her (he's clarified he's less a killer for hire and more like a "grand-scale freedom fighter", but this got a full-blown eye-roll from her, as she muttered "Oh, an assassin with a cause, even better..."), she outwardly admits she's genuinely afraid of those like Corvo Attano, Widowmaker, and Agent 47. Ezio's a little nettled at the way she strawmans his profession, but he doubts he'll change her opinion any time soon.


    Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence 
Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, Co-Deities of High-School Sweethearts
  • Demideities
  • Symbol: Two holding hands under a High School sign.
  • Theme Songs: Every "Boy Meets World" Theme Song
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolios: Parental Substitute for Maya, Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome, Determinators
  • Domains: Good, Knowledge, Luck, Family, Law (Topanga)
  • Heralds: Riley and Auggie (their children).
  • Allies: George Feeny, Eikichi Onizuka, Piccolo, Nico Robin (Cory), Phoenix Wright (Topanga)
  • Enemies: Nikita Dragovich
  • Opposes: Ghetsis Harmonia
  • Uneasy Relationship: Zack Morris, Sabrina Spellman and Salem, Tashkent (Cory)
  • When the Pantheonic School needed new teachers to keep running, Feeny brought forth an unusual prospect: a mortal named Cory Matthews, how former student who has now become a history teacher. While he proved to be capable at his job, it was decided that he need to ascend himself in order to stay. Feeny had an idea; Cory would bring his wife Topanga into the Pantheon for their romance dating back to high school. Thus he got back to teaching the kids there while Topanga decided to delve into Pantheonic law.
  • Eikichi Onizuka took a liking to Cory during his time as a mortal and was glad to have more good-aligned teachers in the Pantheon. Cory tried to be a follower... but couldn't quite become the Cool Teacher he was hoping to be. It was never his strong suit in the first place.
  • The pairing was so popular, it created a spinoff that lasted three seasons. This time around, it centered on their daughter Riley. She and her brother Auggie reside alongside their parents in their temple. Maya tags along as well. While many question the decision, many in the House of Family figured that she may well be an honorary sister. Piccolo would be proud.
  • The two of them were wary of the appearance of Zack Morris and not just because of the rivalry between the two shows. It was revealed that Griff Hawkins was one of his followers. He wasn't a bully per say, but he did cause them a bit of misery. While they are in better terms with each other, he fears that Zack may have a corrupting influence on many of his students, especially Maya.
  • As parents themselves, Cory and Topanga stand opposed to Ghetsis Harmonia and his methods of raising children.
  • There was a time when they walked by a familiar duo. When Cory turned them around, he recognized them as Sabrina and Salem... which sent Cory running. When Topanga asked what got him spooked, Salem admitted that he accidentally sent the entire class into the past. They thought that they were able to wipe their memories of the incident, but it looked like their ascension jogged Cory's memory.
  • Gained the approval of Nico Robin, who temporarily took over the job after Cory's departure. While some more lustful students lamented her departure, the vast majority of them admit that Cory knows his stuff.
  • An all American boy, Cory doesn't take Communism too kindly. His daughter was almost consumed by the concept's philosophy before he managed to shake her out of it. When he found out that there was a deity for such people, Cory pinned an American flag upon Nikita Dragovich's temple. Needless to say, the Dirty Communist didn't take that insult well.
    • The first Soviet to visit him after that took him by surprise. He was visited by a ship girl calmly but firmly demanding an apology. Cory was taken aback by the kind approach but was suspicious it could be a trap. An interrogation from Topanga revealed she held no ill content. The lawyer got Cory to apologize for the rude gesture before seeing her off.
  • Cory avoids the subhouse of Water and Ice like the plague, mainly because he doesn't want to be put in a situation where he ever has to wear skis again. When one finds out why, you would understand why it's a touchy topic.
  • Topanga decided to wet her toes in the House of Justice to see just how good the lawyers in the Pantheon are. She felt most inspired by the actions of Phoenix Wright. At the least, she wished her cases were as exciting as his. At least now she gets a taste of what the Crusading Lawyer has to deal with.

    Nabi and Doki 
Nabi and Doki, Co-Gods of Maligned Mixed Relationships
Nabi (left) and Doki (right)
  • Demigods
  • Symbol: The pro-interspecies relationships sign
  • Theme Song(s): Multiple theme songs
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Interspecies Romance, Maligned Love, Star-Crossed Love
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Boba Fett (for the trouble he causes Alana and Marko), Lord Farquaad, Gaston, Frollo, Hans Westergard, Queen Chrysalis
  • Opposes: Penelope Mouse (under Traitor Architypes) (bordering on enemies with Doki), the House of Hatred and Rancor (especially those with racist motivations), many bounty hunter deities (again, for the trouble they cause Alana and Marko)
  • Nabi and Doki were offered a position in the Pantheon after enduring severe persecution due to their interspecies relationship. Nabi's house was vandalized with a rock through the window and graffiti on the outside (this was also done to the vending machines they often meet at), he and Doki were kicked out of a cafe for PDA, Doki landed herself in the hospital after being beaten up by an angry mob who also killed her pet hedgehog, and Nabi was thrown in jail for unwittingly inciting a riot. Their relationship alone was enough to spark massive protests and counter-protests alike. Despite everything, they endured and fought tooth and nail to stay together.
  • Perhaps their closest friends are Alana and Marko because of how much the two of them reminded them of themselves. Or at least they used to be close until the whole situation with Boba Fett and the other Bounty Hunter deities. As a result, Nabi and Doki are not overly fond of the bounty hunters of the Pantheon, especially Boba Fett.
  • Among others that rub Nabi and Doki the wrong way are Gaston, Frollo, Hans Westergard, Lord Farquaad, and Queen Chrysalis. This is mostly due to their attitudes towards love or their extreme attempts to get in the way of love. They were especially mortified by Queen Chrysalis after hearing about why she was banned from the House of Love and Affection. There's also Zapp Brannigan and Glenn Quagmire, but Nabi and Doki are more annoyed by them than anything and wouldn't really call them enemies.
  • Similarly to Alana and Marko, Nabi and Doki are also really friendly with Gumball and his family. They are especially impressed with his parents, who are also a cat and a rabbit. For the same reason they have also bonded with Oswald and his wife.
  • Shrek and Scott Pilgrim really admired Nabi for his determination to stay with Doki despite all the persecution against them. They were especially impressed with his mad dash to stop Doki from leaving on a plane. They've been friends ever since his and Doki's ascension.
  • Nabi is extremely sympathetic of Emily and her situation. There was a time where he came really close to letting Doki go so that she would be happy and safe, too. They frequently bond over this.
  • Doki's love of animals has carried over from her pre-ascension days. She can often be seen caring for animals or pet sitting with Fluttershy. Just don't be surprised if your pet comes back with a green ribbon tied around its neck. Also, Fluttershy has always been curious about what happened to Doki's pet hedgehog, but so far Doki has opted not to tell her. Not only is it a painful memory, but it would also probably make Fluttershy cry.
  • Another pony Doki is fairly close with is Princess Cadance. Not only does Cadance admire Doki for everything she went through just to be with Nabi, but Doki is also fascinated by her love magic. She has suggested that Cadance become a relationship counselor, but alas, royal duties and parenthood keep the princess extremely busy.
  • Doki is also on really good terms with Angel. Not only does she find the experiment adorable, but she also really admires her for what she did.
  • From the moment she first saw him, Doki was completely enamored with Cream's Chao, Cheese. She thought he was positively precious. From time to time, Doki has been known to visit Cream. Not just for a chat (although that's definitely part of it), but to also play with her adorable Chao.
  • Nabi and Doki are not fond of Penelope Mouse for what she did to Bentley, Doki especially. They felt so bad for him, and have been really friendly with one another since they both found out the reason he and Penelope broke up.
  • Excited to see new kin in the Pantheon, Judy Hopps, along with her partner Nick Wilde, made a point to introduce themselves, and have been friends ever since. Nick and Judy were especially touched by what Nabi and Doki endured prior to their ascension. Just hearing about it absolutely enraged Judy. Doki also seems to think that Nick and Judy are a couple, or at least they should be.
  • Doki often watches Lady and Tramp from a distance. She has made it her personal mission to successfully execute a spaghetti kiss with Nabi someday.
  • Nabi has won so many bets in the House of Food pertaining to how much Doki can eat.

  • Pities: Zeref, Ophelia
  • Pitied by: Dominic Cobb, Lara Croft,
  • Oppose: Hamlet, Scarlett O'Hara
  • After their death, the two found solace in the Pantheon, where they could always be together forever. They give their blessings to any and all Star-Crossed Lovers in the hope that they all will eventually find happiness.
  • Their temple has a big balcony as a reminder of one of their most famous scene and where the couple planned to runaway together.
  • Their superior Shakespeare is annoyed that the two of them have a portion of the fanbase that see them as example of a healthy love story. Romeo and Juliet themselves are too consumed by each other to really care.
  • They were reincarnated various times, once in a modern setting, then in space and even as lawn yard gnomes.
    • Artix met up with them and told them of their reincarnations whom a hero went to the underworld and brought them back to the living to have a new beginning. The two wept tears of joy and have been eternally grateful to the paladin.
  • The two are disgusted when learned about Judge Frollo and his sexual harassment of Esmeralda. Also don't like Gaston for his unwanted advanced on Belle. This, along with their theme of lovers who can't be together, has made them good allies with Belle and the Beast.
  • The couple is a good ally for Angelo due to being the opposite of Frollo and was compared to Romeo by his team for his relationship with Jessica.
  • They became friends with detective Conan Edogawa due to his condition makes him unable to be with his love.
  • Has been in contact with Simba when he found out that their story is similar to that of his daughter Kiara. The couple welcomes Simba's presence because he allows his daughter to be with her love and avoiding the grisly fate like them.
  • To the surprise of everyone, the couple can be spotted engaging in a rap battle.
  • Being one of the most famous and iconic works of Shakespeare, the couple found themselves many interesting interaction within the Pantheon.
    • The couple is incredibly jealous of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth when they heard that the two of them are Happily Married to each other, despite the atrocities that they committed. The fact that both couples have many look-a-like doesn't help the matter.
    • Both of them feel incredibly sorry for Ophelia and angry at Hamlet for how abusive he is towards her. The fact that both couples have many look-a-like also helps, even if the couple has... less than pleasant encounter with Ophelia.
    • Was surprised when found out that Juliet has the same appearance as Lara Croft, of all people. Lara feels very sorry for the couple and sometimes can be seen near their temple to receive some 16th century Italian artifacts.
      • Was also surprised when found out that Juliet has the same voice as Tigress. The couple is uncomfortable when in her presence due to her no non-sense attitude and being a talking tiger and try to avoid her as much as possible.
    • The couple found kinship and similarity in their story with Jack and Rose, right down to their ending. Especially when the four found out that sometimes Jack looks like Romeo. Romeo and Juliet express disgust when they heard about Cal Hickley's action from Rose.
      • Romeo teams up with Jack in order to rescue Rose after hearing that Calvin Candie used his similarity with Jack to kidnap Rose. Since then, Romeo has increased security around his temple to avoid the same fate for Juliet.
    • Has a very... awkward encounter with Scarlett O'Hara when she faints after seeing Romeo because he looks like one of her former lover Ashley. The couple has been trying to avoid her after that when hearing about her reputation.
    • The two of them aren't very well-liked by Sherlock Holmes because he hates their impulsive and illogical actions. The fact that he sometimes looks like them just annoys him further.
    • Has been keeping an eye on Mr. Hyde, who sometimes is mistaken as Romeo and try to kill Juliet when she runs into the man and hugs him.
    • The couple and Jack Sparrow have been avoiding each other ever since they found out about each other's different lifestyle and that Romeo looks like one of Sparrow's "friend" Will Turner.
    • Juliet had a bit of a surprise upon encountering Beth March due to how similar in appearance they are to each other. The two ended up becoming friends after hearing about each other’s tragic demise.
    • Both Romeo and Juliet used to live in Gielinor's Varrok, it's best not to remind them about it. Oddly enough they can be found in another Varrok located in a alternate universe, only as disembodied heads and though they find this disturbing they actually like those counterparts best in the RuneScapeverse.
      • Romeo can also be found in a location simply known as 'Behind The Scenes' where he helped a adventurer with a actor who plays Guthix; who not only looks like Guthix, but apparently possesses his name as well. When Romeo met the actual god Guthix in the Pantheon, he initially mistook him for the actor causing no end of confusion for them both.
  • Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be tomorrow.

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

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

  • The popular girl and the unpopular boy in a high school class is the sort of relationship that doesn't usually happen, but in the case of Kyoko Hori, she ended up being introduced to Izumi Miyamura when her younger brother, Souta, experienced a nosebleed during school and had to be escorted back home by Miyamura, who turned out to be passing by. Despite being in the same class, Miyamura's isolated and asocial nature meant that he never really met or spoke to anyone, let alone Hori. The two get to learn about each other and their private matters, such as Hori taking up the role of caretaker for her brother as her parents are away and Miyamura having tattoos and piercings around his body, which were not permitted to be shown in school. They agree to keep their personal information hidden whilst helping each other, after which Hori and Miyamura realize that both of them are much more similar than they seem and develop romantic affections for one another, despite their polar-opposite demeanor. What ensues is a hectic and meaningful high school year as Hori slowly begins to appreciate and love Miyamura, who also has to deal with his issues of loneliness, feeling worthless, and eventually getting to open up and make new friends.
  • Hori and Miyamura faced many endeavors and struggles during their time in high school, but eventually came out having either come to terms or overcome their past struggles and misfortunes as well as having made several good memories to reflect on with their friends and classmates. Ultimately, they were able to finish off with graduation, though not before Hori and Miyamura got engaged as they had planned to live and provide for one another. Quite some time had passed after the conclusion of their tale when the Pantheon had managed to gain their attention, after which they were given an invitation via a letter. Hori was the first to respond, finding a sense of amusement that she and Miyamura were invited to "a mystical realm that has acknowledged their story and is to be sanctified for it", whereas Miyamura was cautious, yet willing to check and see what the intent was about. In time, they were to meet a figure that directed them to a spot known as the House of Love and Affection, which became Hori and Miyamura's first contact with the Pantheon. They were bewildered, to say the least, and figured that they can probably use the opportunity to branch out to new experiences, accepting the terms of ascension. Though Hori would like to affirm that she's gonna need to keep an eye out for a lot of places so that her family and friends as just as accommodated, now that they're heralds and always welcomed to visit.
  • Hori and Miyamura are an odd couple, to say the least. One would get the impression that the latter is a "bad boy" and that his grim, almost intimidating appearance would be some sort of appeal factor for the former, but it turns out that the inverse is true; the former is the more temperamental and aggressive one out of the two, with Miyamura being rather introverted and reserved for the most part, though he does have his rough side, especially if provoked too much. And despite having a tough demeanor, Hori does have a softer side, being a pretty good guardian figure for Souta and being open to helping out others, even if she can be terrifying towards her friends. With all that is said, and despite the number of times that Hori teases Miyamura, they both understand each other to a deep extent and of course, they love each other. Though, Hori prefers their romantic affections to be showcased by having Miyamura act like he's the dominant and borderline-possessive one in the relationship, much to his annoyance.
  • Hori's nature as her household's main caretaker due to her parents' constant absences is, luckily, not common knowledge in the Pantheon, though she's annoyed to learn that Miyamura isn't the only one who knows it either. To her credit, those that do know of Hori's predicament, plus the reason why she is close to her little brother, happen to be those who were thrust into similar responsibilities. She found amusement in learning that Yui Hirasawa was in the same position as Souta was, except that it was her younger sister, Ui, who had to look after the house. Hori herself enjoys some contemporary rock music and is open to helping out Yui and Ui if she has spare time, though she admits that while she finds Yui's passion for music endearing, it can be troubling at times, given her lack of tact at times. On a greater note, while appreciative of the House of Family and Relatives, Hori would rather have them not mention her personal life at all, even if the more senior residents know the details behind it, much to her chagrin.
    • In regards to household care, Punky Brewster was a peculiar one, being that she was abandoned by her parents and she had to be adopted by Henry Warnimont, setting up for a series of tales and experiences she would have with her adopted father and new friends along the way. It just so happened that she bumped into Hori and Miyamura when she was out with Henry buying groceries after a day in school. Both parties agreed to help one another and it turned out that Punky was wanting to buy some bread, which coincidentally led to Tomoya and Nagisa's domain via Sanae's bakery. It's there where Henry and Punky started to befriend Hori and Miyamura, with Punky being given visitations to the former's household, partly for Souta to be given a new friend and partly for Punky to better catch up with her grades upon learning that Hori is a well-achieving student and often helps her brother out. Though, as demonstrated before, Punky has experienced having to separate from old friends and moving on, so she's a bit nervous about how things would play out regarding her friendship with Hori and Miyamura as age goes by.
  • While this isn't public for the Pantheon, Miyamura faced depression and loneliness throughout his childhood and school years and was even willing to commit suicide at his lowest point. Initially, Hori was the only one to know of this, but given how the Pantheon has been pretty open to helping out those who underwent a period of emotional distress, this, as well as some convincing on Hori's part, Miyamura became confident enough to express his feelings and experience in the House of Despondency, where there were a couple of figures who not only expressed condolences but also thought if they could help him out with the rule to not make Miyamura's childhood struggles public to everyone. He's felt a lot more appreciative and content since and alongside it, he's made some new friends along the way, though he does worry if the additional friend circle he's making might end up creating new problems later on.
  • To nobody's surprise, they aren't exactly fond of bullies, considering that Miyamura's past struggles involved being bullied mainly for being an introvert and for his supposedly freakish appearance, which led to him attempting suicide. Of course, many would assume Hori as a bully towards her friends given her own aggressive and bullish attitude, though, as she demonstrates, she doesn't take kindly to those who ostracize her friends and family and hence is quite protective of Miyamura. Of course, she sees bullies like Biff Tannen and Gary Smith as not being worth her time and energy as they either refuse to change their ways, are proud of their bullying, or are too obnoxious to deal with, whereas Miyamura expresses more disdain for them given what he's been through. On a more positive note, they did find some companionship with Jimmy Hopkins and Marty McFly, given they proved to stand up for themselves as well as help others in need if given the opportunity. Marty's interest in classical rock was endearing to Miyamura and the former even though the latter's formerly gloomy appearance was rather cool, whereas Hori and Jimmy expressed some interest in learning from one another on how to handle bullies when necessary.
  • Among the more notable new friends Miyamura and Hori made during their time in the Pantheon were a pair that, ironically enough, were incredibly against one another, or at least it was one-sided from the perspective of Shouya Ishida, who used to bully Should Nishimiya for her disability, only for him to become ostracized and bullied when Shouko's received abuse became too much and had to move schools. Both pairs happened to stumble across one another in the House of Love and Affection, and Hori was eager to chat up with Shouya about how he and Shouko became good friends, something which made him incredibly hesitant. While Miyamura was able to convince him to tell his side of the story, he caught a sudden intrigue to their tale, though not without Hori thumping Shouya for bullying Shouko in their childhood. Still, this didn't ruin their potential friendship as Hori figured that Shouya's redemption was genuine and told him to take care of Shouko as much as he can. Of course, Miyamura greatly sympathize and related to them regarding their childhood trauma and their suicide attempts whereas Hori found some irony in hearing that Shouko had to be looked after by her younger sister, Yuzuru, considering how she had to be her own younger brother's caretaker. Regardless of their tragedies and pain, Shouya and Shouko have since been greatly acquainted with Miyamura and Hori since.
  • In regards to taking care of the family as well as facing a persistent personal struggle, the pair got to meet up with the Ozakis; Tomoya, Nagisa, and Ushio at some point. While Tomoya didn't have past suicidal urges as Miyamura did during childhood, the two understood how it felt to be isolated and distant from others and saw that they could perhaps learn from each other and that Miyamura and Hori were open to the idea of visiting and supporting Nagisa and Ushio as well, which is how they quickly became good friends as well as approval from Nagisa's parents, Akio and Sanae. Miyamura having experience in baking bread was delightful information for Sanae to hear about and she sometimes invites him to work with her at her restaurant for decent pay in case he has free time. Akio's overdefensiveness towards his daughter and granddaughter has been a source of comical mischief, but Hori's own temperament has led to a few clashes against him with Akio admitting to being a bit intimidated whenever he sees Hori at her worst. The pair were willing to invite Tomoya and Nagisa to their own friend club as a way for them to make new friends and even supported Nagisa's former dream of being a stage actress, though she insists that she's okay with mainly being a family with her husband and daughter.
  • The pair also ended up becoming good friends with Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono after the two pairs were recommended to each other by Shouya when it came down to who to approach and connect with. They met at a sweets store at the House of Food where Kaori was browsing through a lost of chocolates that she intended to buy and recognized Hori and Miyamura thanks to Shouya's description of the two, followed by the four of them having some share of chocolates together to commemorate for the moment they became friends. Kaori found Hori's domineering behavior towards Miyamura quite amusing, which was only furthered when she learned that Miyamura pretends to be the controlling one as that somehow turns Hori on. Miyamura and Kousei, on the other hand, had a more tender partnership, seeing as both led tough childhoods and managed to get past their struggles through the social and emotional support they gained in high school, though they don't particularly like to talk too much about that particular topic, with Kousei being a little mortified about how Miyamura once contemplated suicide due to his loneliness and being undesired. On a lighter note, Kousei doesn't particularly mind Miyamura's formerly glum-like look, even thinking it looked a bit fine, if creepy, not to mention not entertaining the idea of Hori bossing him around like Kaori and his own friends do, though Hori is actually willing to connect and even help out Kousei during spare time, given that he technically loves on his own.
  • Among bully victims, Haruka Kotoura was among those that struck a lot of interest and sympathy from the duo, especially when they found out just how much disregard, neglect, and abuse she went through solely because she possessed mind-reading powers that she doesn't really have control over and her being unintentionally insensitive didn't help matters either. She and Miyamura quickly got along, though the latter wanted to tell her that she needs to be careful when it comes to saying information out loud that is meant to be confidential. Haruka easily recognized what Miyamura meant… as well as a lot of other thoughts, particularly regarding Hori, who jokingly eggs on asking Haruka what she knows about her. Of course, Hori is aware of the severity of the bullying Haruka endured and has made it clear that she will stand up for and defend her if needed. On an extended note, she and Miyamura are satisfied to learn that the ESP Club has ensured she becomes happy and content in looking forward to the future. By extension, the pair also become acquainted with ESP Club members like Yoshihisa Manabe, Yuriko Mifune, and Daichi Muroto, mainly thanks to them appreciating each others' close-knitted friendship, though the fact that Haruka's mind reading means she can realize others' thoughts make for a lot of odd hijinks for everyone involved, something that Hori sees as her initiative to boss around on everyone else in case she thinks someone plans of egging her.
  • While not delinquents themselves (although some might assume Miyamura to have been one), the two did befriend Seiichiro Kitano at some point when Kitano opted to look out for anyone in his age peer he can look out for in the Pantheon, with Hori and Miyamura's friend circle being among them. Much to their amusement, Hori and Miyamura was surprised by Kitano's kindhearted nature, despite his thuggish look as well as the turnover that Hori herself was the scary one in her relationship with Miyamura, which was shown when she realized Kitano scared her friends with just his presence, even if he didn't mean it. Regardless, Kitano didn't let Hori's aggressive nature undermine his perspective on her and still opted to see if he could help her out, though as of yet, he's not yet aware of her domestic circumstances regarding her parents and Souta. On the other hand, he and Miyamura get along pretty well to a point where Kitano is open to trying getting him to make more friends and be more well-adjusted emotionally and mentally, and though Miyamura has stated that he's doing fine enough, he nevertheless appreciates Kitano's gesture of wanting to help him out.
  • Despite presenting an outwardly feminine demeanor, Hori is a fan of horror movies, and, to her amusement, Miyamura is not very good at watching them without getting scared, something that she likes to take advantage of. Given that there are Houses that are open to distributing fictional works, be it in Media and Connectivity or Theatre and Spectacle, Hori visits them to see if there are any rentals and buys she can afford regarding horror content, much to Miyamura's discomfort and annoyance. And in case she has the time, she'll even form a horror fan club to watch those with fellow friends if they happen to be horror fans like her… as well as their friends. Like Miyamura, she prefers they be afraid of those films as she thinks they'll make the whole experience better. That said, even if her mischievous nature on that front, she's not alright with straight-up traumatizing others due to her interests and, as a result, strongly condemns the Ghostface Killers as they take their obsession with the genre way too far and wish to kill people just to inspire a work and to satiate their bloodhungry desires. Fortunately, Ghostface hadn't contacted Hori and Miyamura… yet, which only makes them dread the idea of them reaching out to the two.
You don’t have to apologize, you don’t have to tell them anything.
