Pantheon / Criminal Punishment

Go To

A prison smack in the middle of the House of Crime. It's guarded by voluntary deities working in rotation, like Jorgen Von Strangle, who has a perfect record in not letting anyone escape on his turn. Unfortunately, not all guards are competent like that, thus strong and/or influential inmates can easily break out or take advantage of the system. Some can even casually walk through the facility without any sort of restraining tool.

Deities from other Houses that are caught commiting crimes are temporarily held here until the day of their trial at the Court of the Gods.

Greater Gods

    Prometheus 
Prometheus, The Titan Who Was Chained to a Rock (Bringer of Fire, Titan of Forefought, Creator of Mankind)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_prometheus_carrying_fire_jan_cossiers.jpg
Prometheus stealing fire from the gods
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Stolen fire
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Our Titans Are Different, Immortality, Gave Mankind Fire And Suffered For Centuries Because Of It, Chained by Fashion, Chained to a Rock For Stealing Fire From The Gods, Has Christ-Like AND Lucifer-Like Qualities, Meaningful Name, Heroic Sacrifice
  • Domains: Fire, Immortality, Imprisonment, Defiance, Humanity
  • Allies: Hercules (for releasing him), Ganesha, Lucifer, Futaba Sakura and the Phantom Thieves, Alexstrasza, Hestia, Firestorm, Alcor
  • On good terms with: The Houses of Craft, Science, Knowledge and Fire & Heat
  • On speaking terms with: Zeus (former enemy and jailer) and the other Greek deities, Kratos, Ragnaros the Firelord
  • Enemies: SCP-953, Merged Zamasu, YHVH, Yaldabaoth, The Divine Powers, AM, Brand, SCP-542
  • Opposed by: Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase
  • Fears: Any deity related to eagles, The Truth
  • Pities: Imhotep, Victor Frankenstein
  • Prometheus was one of the four children of the titan Iapetus, being known as the Titan of forefought. Neutral in the titanomachy and given the instructions to help craft man out of clay, he sought to better their lives even against Zeus' rules. This put the two in conflict, and in one great act of defiance gave man the tool of fire that he stole from the heavens. Enraged at this slight, Zeus condemned the titan to an eternity of being chained to a rock, where an eagle would peck out his liver for all eternity. At least until he eventually felt mercy, and had Hercules release him centuries later.
  • While most Greek gods and their family have a nasty streak, Prometheus is a champion of humanity. One of the reasons Zeus had it out for him is because he helped make mankind before him and got jealous at that. Often seen as a symbol of knowledge and the sciences, he is welcome in both homes, and Craft for his achievements.
  • While he has a lost of messianic elements, his position as a rebel to the divine order makes him a Lucifer-like figure. Though disinterested in most versions of the Devil, he does get along with the one from Shin Megami Tensei for being a champion of humans and free will like himself. That's not to say he agrees with Lucifer's more extreme acts of rebellion and chaos, but there is a lot of respect for the Fallen Angel. The respect is mutual, as Lucifer was impressed by him helping humans to trick the gods like the Trick at Mecone when it came to animal sacrifices.
  • Initially neutral in the conflict of the titans and Cronus' children, but in their conflict he sided with Cronus for some reason and gained the enmity of Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase. While a case of Adaptational Villainy, he was mainly doing it because he had a bone to pick with the Olympians for his horrific punishment. There might have been a larger scheme at work, and he was still one of the nicer titans.
  • Serves as the Ultimate Persona to Futaba Sakura. He pities her feelings of isolation, and admires what she's accomplished with her use of technology and the sciences. In general Prometheus is a friend of the Phantom Thieves of Heart since they fight against Yaldabaoth, a being who wants to rob mankind's freedom to think and rule for themselves for themselves. He hates YHVH for similar reasons. Maya Amano recognizes him as the Persona of her ally Baofu
  • Merged Zamasu hates, hates, HATES him. Believing mortals are wicked for misusing the knowledge of the gods, he blames Prometheus for allowing them the knowledge in the first place and even helping to create them. Prometheus responded that while it's true man has misused divine information, they are capable of great things and that Zamasu is worse than ANY mortal he has come across. The Mad God lost it and carved Prometheus in half, swearing he would inflict on him a fate far worse than what Zeus inflicted on him for his "ultimate sin", though he was rescued before Zamasu could inflict this fate.
  • Asides from YHVH and Zamasu, he disapproves heavily of the Divine Powers for their devaluing of human life while believing they are doing the right thing. As a Titan he's an old god of sorts, but wants nothing to do with their organization.
  • Friendly with fellow deity Ganesha for being a source of wisdom and knowledge of mankind. Ganesh feels really bad for his ordeal, however told him not to worry as Zeus has released him from that fate. He's on speaking terms with the Greek pantheon...with the exception of the time they got infected by the evils of Pandora's Box (which was made by Zeus to spite him) and locked him up again. Kratos killed him, but he doesn't have any hard feelings towards him since it was a Mercy Kill. Plus he understands what it's like for Zeus to screw you over.
  • Understandably terrified of eagles, actively avoiding any deity related to them. Or Truth, given his punishments to beings considered to abuse knowledge like human transmutation. Not that the Truth cares much what Prometheus does. Or fates worse than death, leading him to hate AM. And he really hates SCP-953 due to a mix of her extreme sadism and fondness for livers, while she seems him as an ever-lasting supply of livers to eat.
  • Is extremely sympathetic towards Imhotep for his horrific punishment. He initially believed that his own fate was the worst, but his entombment and The Punishment makes his own Fate Worse than Death seem pleasant by comparison. To a lesser extent he pities Victor Frankenstein's failed attempt at playing god and creating a new kind of human.
  • Gave fire to humanity, for all the good and ill that it entails. As such he's well-respected by the House of Fire & Heat, particularly Alexstrasza. Him and Hestia are friendly since they're two of the few members in the Greek pantheon who don't seem to have any jerk deity traits. He also respects Firestorm for his mastery of flame and transmutation. However he considers Brand a lunatic and a disgrace to fire. Ragnaros seems to respect him quite a lot, but given his personality Prometheus keeps his distance.

Intermediate Gods

    Akira Otoishi 
Akira Otoishi, God of Using a Lesser Crime As a Cover Up
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akira_otoishi_anime.png
  • Intermediate God (when having an open source of electricity)
  • Symbol: His Stand "Red Hot Chili Pepper" and his custom guitar
  • Theme Music: Electric Guitarist, Ultra Super Guitarist, Akira Otoishi Battle
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil intially
  • Portfolio: Villainous Electric User, Self-Centered Glory Hound With Powers, Large Ham, Can Kill People By Dragging Them Through Electric Currents, Elemental Absorption, Disc-One Final Boss
  • Domains: Guitarists, Electricity, Travel, Crime
  • Allies: Tohru Adachi
  • Enemies: Light Yagami
  • Rivals: I-No, Lord Raptor, Skwisgaar Skwigelf
  • Fears: Jotaro Kujo, Josuke Higashikata, Okuyasu Nijimura
  • Fan of: Rohan Kishibe
  • Akira was a school boy who wanted to rock the world with his guitar skills while also being bit of a petty thief. However, things changed when he was hit by a Stand Arrow what allowed him to manifest his Stand, which caused him to get more cocky, but also more cautious for his actions since he knows that he might get caught by other Stand users. Which did eventually happen.
  • Even though he killed Keicho Nijimura and almost killed Joseph Joestar, the fact that he did it with his Stand would be hard to explain to the police. As such, he only got three years of prison time for grand theft. Honestly, he preferred to spend time in prison as otherwise he would face the wrath of Josuke, Okyuasu and Jotaro. After serving his time, he did decide to start behaving in fear that he would get his ass whooped by them.
  • His Stand is named "Red Hot Chili Pepper" (or just Chili Pepper), some sort of humanoid bird dinosaur thing what can absorb electricity to make it grow stronger. While Chili Pepper is incredibly powerful when he has access to electricity, his power drops drastically if there isn't any. And while he is a remote controlled Stand, he can only go so far away from electric source.
    • Chili Pepper also has the power to travel through electric currents and drag things through it. While inanimate objects are fine going through them, anything alive will most likely get fried from the trip.
    • If anyone asks, Akira seemed to have been able to recover Chili Pepper back to his prime after the years.
  • He isn't really a fan of other JoJo villains, saying that they are too much even for him. They in return think he is just a small-time mook. In fact, during Heaven Ascension Dio's attempt to take over the timelines, he was the only villain what needed to be brainwashed. Does help that Akira does try to not do anything bad now.
  • The House of Justice find it annoying that he was able to more or less escape proper punishment for the things he actually did. And since he has already served his time, he can't be punished further.
  • Adachi was surprised that he was able to receive a lesser punishment when he had to admit the full bulk of his murders, even if both cases involved supernatural elements. Still, he does like that he is trying to improve and he can't say that he was any worse than him.
  • Even though Akira brings his guitar into battle, he does not use it in battle. He went great deal (read:stole bunch of stuff) to built his guitar and doesn't want it to get damaged. He seems to mainly use it to amp himself up. And probably because he is smug enough to think it won't get damaged.
  • Not really a fan of Lord Raptor, I-No and Skwisgaar, albeit it is just for his ego talking. He says that he will rock their world with his skills on stage and in battle.
  • Light Yagami really hates him as he doesn't like how he got away with his crimes with the minimal punishment possible. He wished he could use the Death Note to give him the punishment he deserves, but he knows that due to the Pantheon's rules, it wouldn't last.
  • He claims that he can beat anyone with his pinkie. He tends to get his pinkie broken in response.

    Imhotep 
Imhotep, God of Cursed Punishments (He-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named, The Creature)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_0438.JPG
His human form
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_0436.PNG
His mummified form
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Book of the Dead
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: The Mummy, Punished by Hom Dai, a terrible curse and Sealed Away for Eternity, Brought Back from Death Twice, Bald of Evil, A Decayed Mummy until rejuvenated, Cursed with Awesome Powers like Almost Difficult to Kill, the Power of the Ten Plagues, create a wall of sand or water
  • Domains: Mummy, Curses, Punishment
  • High Priestess: Princess Ahmanet
  • Allies: Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, Cobra Commander, Destro, The Baroness
  • Rivals: Kuphulu
  • Enemies: Anakaris, [[Pantheon/Gaming Styles Yami Yugi]], Ramses, Moses, Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, Ra, Osiris, Isis, Bastet, Anubis, Sobek, Geb, Anub'arak, Neith, Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Donald Duck, Zia Rashid
  • Fears: Cats
  • Imhotep was the high priest to Seti I until he was having an affair with Seti's mistress, Anck-Su-Namun, which led to them killing the pharaoh upon discovery and Anck-Su-Namun killing herself to prevent capture. Imhotep attempted to resurrect his lover but he was stopped before it could be complete. While his priest were mummified alive, he was forced to suffer the Hom Dai, a terrible curse that no other man faced beside blasphemers. He has his tongue cut, bound in wrapping, and buried in a sarcophagus with flesh-eating scarabs with a curse of undeath and unholy powers like immortality and the plagues.
    • He ascended into the Pantheon when he woke from his slumber in another world. Apparently, a temple appeared from the mirage and the Duck family tried to raid it for the rumored treasure deep inside. They found a chest which contains the Book of the Dead and some canopic jars. Unfortunately, the triplets had to unearth his sarcophagus and some diggers had to open it without warning, and Scrooge had to read through the Book and cite the incarnation that revives him. After draining the flesh and organs of the schmucks that opened it, he has regain his fullest power and became a threat to the Pantheon.
  • Donald Duck dislikes Imhotep, but only because of a bad time at Ancient Egypt where he had to be a host of a spirit of a pharaoh, but a jealous high priest unleash a mummy to destroy him.
  • He is not well-liked by Anakaris, a mummy of a powerful pharaoh, as he was put off by him upon finding out that he murdered his own liege for an affair.
    • He found Kuphulu to be strange, a creature that he sense to even be "unsettling." The fact that it is neither Egyptian, undead, or even human, just a being that resembles a mummy. Regardless, he found the being to be a hindrance in controlling the land of the living with Kuphulu's goal.
  • Somehow, he managed find some well-known Hollywood monsters as drinking buddies. He discovered that Dracula was a being that wanted to rule the land of the living and one who wanted to bring a loved one back from the dead. Much to everyone's horror, the two most powerful monsters decide to make an alliance. At least there's not such a threat from Frankenstein, who back in the day was said to look like Imhotep, and the only similarity to him is being an undead person.
  • Some of the House of Love sympathizes with him when the reincarnation of his lover left him to die when he begged her to save him. In fact, his act of villainy and motive was going through the underworld to bringing her back from the dead.
  • He was considered a heretic by the Egyptian Gods for trying to use the Book of the Dead to resurrect Anck-Su-Namun, especially since it was deemed sacrilege to Osiris, the god of the underworld.
  • He once mistaken The Rock for the Scorpion King in his human form due to their similar appearance.
  • He possess the power of the Ten Plagues of Egypt, the same plagues that devastated Egypt by Moses invoking God's power to persuade Ramses to release the Hebrews, like plague of locust, hail of fire, darkness, etc. Moses was horrified that an Egyptian would release such devastation on Egypt once again.
    • His power of plague of boils has the power to mind control the populace into his drones. While they are frightening in numbers, it has one major flaw: pretending to be controlled yourself. It worked more than Imhotep likes to admit.
  • Ramses was furious of seeing him as it is said that he murdered his father Seti I and he possesses the power of the plagues, the same plagues that Moses and his Hebrew god brought forth to devastate Egypt.
    • Another deity named Zia Rashid too hated him for murdering Seti and devastated Egypt by his power.
  • He can summon a wall with his roaring face made up of some material like sand or water to consume anything, particularly aircrafts.
  • It is said that he was named after the god Imhotep, the renowned Egyptian known for his architecture, engineering, and medicine who was deified after his death. Imhotep doesn't seem to care about living up to the god's name as he is more focused with taking over the living world.
  • While he is still in a state of undeath, he fears cats as they are the guardian of the Underworld, especially the Egyptian goddess of cats, Bastet.
  • He detests Indiana Jones and Lara Croft, mostly because of their adventurous nature resembles his nemesis, Richard "Rick" O'Connell. And he got enraged upon seeing George of the Jungle, as he looks as lot like Rick.
  • Considering that his flesh was devoured by carnivorous scarab beetles, he grew to despise them. The fact that there is one scarab-like god, Anub'arak, he would hope to kill him one day as its clear that he hasn't forgotten about the little pests.
  • The Cobra deities once went to Imhotep mistaking him for Zartan. A good relationship emerged given they share the same ambition, and thus much of pantheon is keeping a close watch to stop a possible team-up.
  • Felt some sort of connection to Darkman and went looking for him. Peyton is somewhat bummed that one of his regular disguises looks like Imhotep.

    The Sinner 
The Sinner, Deity of Sentences Longer Than One's Lifespan
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_protag.png
Two of their more common guises.
  • Intermediate Deity
  • Symbol: Their barcode. Alternatively, the Panopticon Eye.
  • Theme Song: The Price To Be Free
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: From a Crapsack World with Post Peak Everything, A Starting Life Sentence of 1 Million Years Because of Lost Memory, Very Customizable (Even A Chance For Two-Toned Hair), Sentence Reduction By Doing Missions, The Leader, Human Resources, Made of Iron, Nerves of Steel, Zero Resolved Plotlines, accomplished Better With Teamwork, Very Slow Regeneration, Earning Swimwear For Working Off Their Sentence
  • Domain(s): Punishment, Parole, Rights
  • Heralds: Their Accessory (Robot Buddy/Warden), their ally Sinners
  • Followers: Sengoku, Merrill "Benten" Yanagawa, Gabimaru "Gogul" Rikiya, Kanae Kazaki, Leon Garcia de Asturias, Solomon Roka, DuVaul, The God Eaters, The Mononofu, The Sorcerer, members of Sanctuariumnote , Hunters from the Kingdom of Heiland note 
  • Allies: Guts, Maximus, Anakin Skywalker, The Monster Hunters, Jensen Ames
  • Enemies: Cletus Cassidy/Carnage, Bondrewd, ADVENT, Big Brother
  • Fears: Judge Dredd
  • Pities: River Song, Aleph
  • Pitied By: Their allies, Earl Hickey, Agatha Heterodyne
  • Opposes: Earl of Lemongrab
  • Sentences for crimes usually come in the form of years served in prison/parole, and usually, the worst is a life sentence. And then there are cases with sentences far longer than one can expect to pay with their lifespan, sometimes ridiculously so. The Sinner got a million year-long sentence after birth for being a waste of human resources. "Thankfully", doing work for their Panopticon helps reduce the sentence... by tens of years (or tens of thousands of years for particularly hard or important ones). Usually, this work comes in the form of reclaiming kidnapped Citizens, repelling assaults by other Panopticons, scavenging resources, and other such necessities. With such a record, the Court decided to bring them to the Pantheon for such an unbelievable record after their plot (or whatever events remotely resemble it) was resolved.
  • Now that they're finally relieved of service of their Panopticon by way of their ascension, at long last, they have achieved true freedom; they can live however they want, they can keep whatever they want (as long as they can afford it), and there are no restrictions on who they can talk to (though who they wish to talk to still has the right to refuse conversation). Unfortunately, this has also left them at a loss on what to do, having been so used to following orders for so long. Fortunately, the GUAG was the first to approach and invite them to their ranks.
  • While they still have their "Accessories" with them, they're no longer tasked in keeping their Sinner in line and adding/reducing years to their sentence. Instead, they just serve to keep their Sinner updated on whatever mission they're on, general advice, and companion in battle.
  • The Sinner's weapons of choice are a melee weapon and ranged weapon "specialized" for taking down large mechs called Abductors. These range from knives, polearms, and brass knuckles for melee to handguns, flamethrowers, assault rifles, sniper rifles, autocannons, and portable artillery. They also have much more durability, agility, and might than an average human to ensure their survival in harsh conditions.
  • Due to their Panopticon life, they treat civilians, especially those who have valuable intel, science skills or are otherwise knowledgeable in essential non-combat stuff, with unnaturally high regard, even deeming their safety more important than whatever mission they're on.
  • Having been subject to a ridiculously long life sentence, they're always on edge whenever Judge Dredd is around; his world's judicial system also delivers long sentences, and unlike their world has very little hope for parole.
  • As fellow deities who've had to win their freedom, the Sinner sympathizes with Guts, Maximus, and Anakin, even though their freedoms were more easily won compared to theirs, in which the Anti-Hero and the gladiator were appalled that the Sinner had to serve that many years, nay, millennia.
    • That said, they're more cautious around the Force user, given his…history.
  • Earl Hickey was exonerated from jail by redeeming himself to people who he had wronged before and is saddened that the Sinner's sentence was harsher than his, not to mention the state of their world that warranted such a sentence.
  • The Sinner's former situation reminds Agatha of the inmates of Castle Heterodyne prior to her inheriting of it. At least sometime after she managed to claim the Castle for her own, either its (surviving) prisoners were freed unconditionally at some point during Klaus' siege of Mechanicsburg or joined up as her minions.
  • They know there are others who've had longer-than-life sentences in the Pantheon, and some of them absolutely deserved them, such as Carnage.
  • Due to how Human Resources are a premium in their world, they despise those who abuse them, such as Bondrewd. There's also the fact that he experiments on children, unlike how the Sinners rescue Citizens who then help make items for them.
    • In a similar vein, they oppose ADVENT as they’re perfectly willing to trick humanity into becoming more of their Mooks and bodies for their dying Elders.
  • One of their weapons is the Ibara Hookshot, which was noted to be like the Omni-directional Mobility Gear system used by the Attack on Titan deities.
  • Are frightened by the prospect of the Imperium of Man's Penal Legions, who are sent to suicide missions even the Imperial Guard aren't sent to, with a promise of forgiveness if they die, and freedom on the very, VERY small chance they live. But given how much of a Crapsack World the Imperium is from, which is much worse than their own

Lesser Gods

    Jack Horner (Fables

Jack enjoying his Hell.
As Jack Frost 
As Jack O'Lantern 
As a dragon 
Jack Horner: Are you flirting with me?
  • Many good members in the House of Family oppose him for selling the soul of firstborn to the devil.
    • They are also not too pleased with him for killing his son (maybe even his firstborn) and his half-sisters, though in this case, it was in self-defense.
  • Once became a dragon and spent time as one for several years, living The Legend of Fafnir.
  • Holds nothing but respect and a bit of envy towards Mateus Palamecia for taking over Hell and possibly heaven. While he, on the other hand, has only managed to take control over his own Hell.
  • Once called Jack Frost son and then asked him how his mother's doing. Confused Jack Frost asked what he's talking about and Jack Horner revealed that the other Jack Frost is his son by The Snow Queen, thus causing a whole new set of annoying rumors about him and Elsa. Jack Horner also mentioned something about wanting to sleep with the queen's sisters.
  • Has tried to steal Santa's naughty list in order to try and make money.
  • Sometimes spends time with Panty Anarchy or Aphrodite for obvious reasons.
  • Tried to get Artemis, Athena and Hera to have a orgy with him. Their answer was Zeus dropping a Bolt of Divine Retribution on him. Artemis then castrated him.
    • Unfortunately for the goddesses Jack got better thanks to his fame. Jack later got even with the goddesses; especially Artemis, by tricking his friend Gary into helping him create a fake, but still very convincing porno of him with them. The video was later sent to the Love House.
      • The three goddesses now avoid Jack like the plague.
  • Sometimes hangs out with Zapp Brannigan and Charlie Harper due to their similar interests.
  • Is drinking buddies with Jack Sparrow, Bacchus, Bender, Homer Simpson, Tony Stark, Cayden Cailean and Roger Smith at Moe's Tavern.

Edward "Eddie" Low, God of Attacking Someone More Dangerous (Ed, Filth Slayer, No-name killer, Keep-Fit Killer, Head Hunter)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddie_low.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His Knife as well as his blog avatar.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Serial Killer, A Love to Dismember, Creepy Blue Eyes, Depraved Bisexual, Horrible Sense of Humor, Enfant Terrible, Psychopathic Manchild, Self-Made Orphan, The Sociopath
  • Domains: Murder, Insanity, dismemberment, Criminals, Twisted Love, Sexual Abuse
  • Allies: Jack The Ripper, Brave Companions, Wild Hunt, Richard Trager, Bambi "Buck" Hughes, Ethan Roark Junior
  • Enemies: Niko Bellic, Jacket, Dollface (Black), Manny Pardo, Oedipus
  • Oppossed by: House of Beast, Family, some humanoid monsters and even people who find him highly disturbing.
  • It was a day like any other, many deities doing their things as usual, until someone discovered a mutilated body of a deity who happened to be strolling around. When the person in question was revived, they felt shocked and couldn't describe who or what killed them. This series of events kept going for weeks, until the House of Justice commenced a special operation to find the culprit. After a long investigation and finding paralels to an infamous killer belonging to Liberty City, whose modus Operandi was killing random joggers in different places, it was found that the culprit was Eddie Low, a deranged human being whose hobbies consist of masturbating in public and tearing off the limbs of his victims. He was quickly apprehended after he tried to murder another deity but killing was not an option. In the end, Eddie Low stuck around after managing to evade the authorities and escape his trial by getting a house in the Crime House, although he is not very proud of why.
  • While Eddie was already infamous in Liberty City as the "Keep-Fit Killer", he met a rather unfortunate end when he attacked the wrong person. That being Niko Bellic that while they started on somewhat decent terms and Eddie believing he made a new friend, he eventually got angry at Niko because Eddie was creeping him out and decided to try to kill him. Big mistake as unbeknown to Eddie, Niko has killed dozens of mobsters and policemen and was a trained hitman at that, so he easily dispatched Eddie by gunning him down. Thus, the deranged Eddie Low met a gruesome end and a well deserved at that.
  • He wants to take revenge on Niko for, in his own words, betraying his friendship. Of course, given how deranged Eddie is, it's pretty likely that he forgot what happened the last time he threatened Niko. Then there are other, like Jacket and Dollface, who have heard of Eddie and wouldn't mind reminding him what happens when you go attacking any random person because he felt like it and like Niko, they won't hesitate to kill him.
  • His temple is filled with nasty things all over it, ranging from feces, vomit and even some "leftovers" from previous guests. Anyone who has entered his place hasn't done it by choice and often leave those deities heavily traumatized (Unless they are already too far gone themselves). He also keeps his mother's severed breast in a shoe box, which he often masturbates to because he was in love with her even if she was strict and she might be the only victim of his that he never intended to murder (Apparently, she died suffocated by sand after Eddie kept pushing her head deeper)
  • Depraved as he is, Eddie has actually to make some friends. And no, we aren't talking about "friends" but actual deities who at least tolerate him. One taking a stroll down his house he came accross the Brave Companions, a group who made him feel really at home. He also is buddies with Wild Hunt, although he is kind of awkward around Cosmina and Dorothea given his lack of relations with women they nonetheless all are ok with "working" with him in their own perversive acts.
  • He is bisexual and has no problem assaulting anyone be it male or female, although he usually he gets a lot of retaliation from nearby deities who spot him on the act. He often likes to hang around with Buck because of that since, while homosexual, they are more or less similar in how they approach others. There are some theories that maybe both Eddie and Buck have done really nasty stuff to each other that they are not talking about.
  • He has every depraved fetish covered for better or worse, like crossdressing, torture and mutilation, bestiality, necrophilia and public masturbation. There is not a single deranged thing that Eddie hasn't done yet and that has creeped out a lot of people, has received a huge backlash from the House of Beast and even some humanoid monsters fear running into him. Some even wonder if Niko is supposed to be more dangerous than him (He is, but he is not a deranged psychopath about it).
  • Eddie didn't have the best upbringing either. His father forced him to wear women clothes and abused him (probably kickstarting his crossdressing habit) and he later killed him out of spite, he was in love with his mother as stated before even if she was very strict and he even killed his younger brother by throwing him into the oven. His grandparents also were constantly innapropriate touched numerous times, forcing Eddie to spend a lot of years under mental institutions, which none actually helped him get better. As such, the House of Family heavily opposses him.
  • Believe it or not, Eddie has a personal blog where he recounts many of his "activities" under the name of Eddielowfilthslayer.blogsnobs.org. No one ever visits this blog and he barely has any followers but those who have read his blog are amazed of how he has no qualms in writing down many of his crimes down.
  • A common visitor of the House of Slaughter, which might be the only place where he doesn't look out of place. He has a knack for torturing people and that's why he frequents the darkest chambers of the house. Of all the deities there, he is buddies with Dr. Trager because he find him pretty funny. Trager is ok with having him around but he finds annoying that if he makes jokes about Eddie, he gets upset and often sent into a murderous rage.

  • Many had feared that the runaway known as Jean Valjean had left the Pantheon forever. It is well known that he has been hiding from Javert for many years. His absence suggested that the dispute may never be resolved. But lo and behold, Valjean was spotted in the House of Justice helping Perry Mason fend off an ambush. Attorney Manfred von Karma was stated to be responsible. Nevertheless, the fugitive made his presence known once more, confirming that he has returned to the Pantheon to represent those whose lives were ruined from petty crimes.
    • Most in the House of Justice have long since given up trying to arrest Jean Valjean. The good-aligned deities are convinced of his redemption while most neutral types consider his crime to be a waste of time. Just don't tell that to Javert. Arguments to leave Valjean alone have fallen on deaf ears. It appears that as long as the two exist, one would continue to pursuit the other for all of eternity.
    • There is at least one deity that joined him in that quest. Miko has sworn to help Javert bring in Jean Valjean for justice. She has taken things even further, suggesting the man to be killed on site for evading the law for so long. Javert has tried to temper those outbursts, preferring the law to determine his fate.
    • And then there are the Dark Judges, who take things even further to the extreme. They serve as the bane of Jean Valjean's followers and are often the cause of their misery. If they had their way, they would put down those criminals and their patron once and for all. Their actions have been condemned by the vast majority of beings in the House of Justice, even from Javert himself.
  • To say that he has many adaptations in his name would be an Understatement. He has shared avatars with the likes of Bryan Mills and Wolverine. It has helped him evade capture in a way. It's hard to find someone whose faces changes every few years.
    • Wolverine would rather not have Jean Valjean remind viewers his avatar used to be on Broadway. It tends to diminish his character's ruggedness.
  • Has sworn to live a life of redemption, even after his death. As such, he seeks guidance from Sol Badguy. The Atoner secretly thinks Jean Valjean is too hard on himself given his own crimes. He is nevertheless committed to help his friend relieve of his guilt.
  • Is credited for having one of the more memorable Heel Face Turns in the Pantheon. His followers hold Zuko to a high regard, especially since the firebender has committed far worse crimes.
  • While it's not true Super Strength, Jean Valjean is certainly stronger than most human gods in the Pantheon. With that said, he hardly ever uses it to fight, more content to helping others. He has received aid from both Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Cage knows all too well about being on the wrong side of the street and was glad the frenchman has turned a new leaf.
  • He almost certainly got much of his origins from Quasimodo, the Hunchback of Notre Dame. The two even share the same creator. Both think little of themselves, instead hoping to find redemption in their lives. Esmerelda was impressed with Valjean's steadfast faith, willing to help him out as well. That and making sure he doesn't go to the church of Frollo.
  • Is great with children, as he has raised a girl named Cosette as his own. Overprotectiveness aside, Madeline and Amelie welcome his presence in their temples.
  • Can always rely on Remy for a meal. Valjean doesn't mind a rat making his food in the slightest (he's eaten from far worst areas). Both have to deal with a society that has judged them for their backgrounds.
  • Has strived to take up Sara Crewe as one of his own children. Impressed with her kindness of others, he strives to be just as good as she is. Note that Sara believes Valjean has done more than enough to prove himself for redemption.
  • Has also given money to the March Sisters as support. He is especially protective of Beth due to her untimely demise.
  • Sometimes has to deal with bounty hunters every once in awhile. Boba Fett has him low on his priorities due to not wanting to deal with Javert.
  • Catwoman is a bit of a sore spot for him. One of her avatars shared a role with Fantine, the woman he felt responsible for her death. Not only that, Selina has used that look in his presence as a way to help her out. He has resisted thus far.
  • Shares a drink with Roger Thornhill on occasion. Both have all sorts of stories on their journey when they were on the run.
  • "Who am I? 24601!"

  • To any victim of long-term incarceration, being set free from it is the ultimate MacGuffin. Of course, it won't come cheap, but when the alternative is to rot and die in captivity, they'll gladly risk their life on whatever No OSHA Compliance Death Course is required of them to get it.
    • Enter Jensen Ames, better known in Death Race as Frankenstein. Sent to Terminal Island Penitentiary for killing his wife but didn't actually do it, he was coerced to racing for the warden in a Death Race for a chance to win freedom by winning five times in a row. Not that the warden planned on letting him succeed, but that's a common aspect of the trope.
    • Months after his escape and living out in Mexico as a mechanic with his new companions and his little daughter Piper, he and his friends got tangled into one of Calypso's Twisted Metal tournaments thanks to one of the Jackass Genie's allies. Jensen thus found himself behind the wheel of his weaponized car, once again fighting for his life, but this time in a free-for-all rather than a race. Someone in the Court was a spectator and recognized him (at first mistaking him for Jason Voorhees, only later realizing that that guy isn't known for driving). Due to the fact that Calypso had roped in a non-deity into this month's Tournament when he wasn't supposed to, the law decided to turn their blind eye back to this issue and shut down the operation, which involved a huge skirmish, a lot of explosions, a copious amount of oil slicks, Link on a motorcycle, a giant ball of bubblegum, the Red Turbo Ranger, Cuccos everywhere, the Joker stealing the Sweet Tooth (again), Toretto driving Doc Brown's DeLorean, Speed O' Sound Sonic in the nude, and the Blood Gulch Reds on the Warthog with their usual music.
    • After the chaos was quelled, during the cleanup operation, Jensen was found, his friends were retrieved, and he was given the Pantheon sales pitch. Given how bad off his world is, even with the more dangerous forces here, Jensen decided to take the offer. Although he's less than amused given that his lodgings are at the House of Crime. At least there are a number of good guys in there despite that.
  • He has special enmity for Needles Kane and 2012!Dollface given he had fought them and their gangs in the tournament he had been shanghaied into, particularly the former after his car got chewed up and thrown away by the Dark Tooth. He had been fortunate enough to survive until the end when the authorities intervened, and he's despised them ever since.
  • Given the kind of race he had been forced to participate, he gets the shudders when seeing Wacky Racing games in action such as Mario Kart. Folks are intrigued that the DeathRace actually implements Power-Ups. Of course, he has no plans on participating in any more races like that.
  • Sympathizes with Katniss, who has also been forced into playing a Deadly Game, but worse since it was government-sanctioned and that even the Capitol's kids loved it.
  • Balked at the Sinner's bid for freedom in that they had a million years to work off by doing dangerous tasks. There's also the state of their world, which makes Jensen's much better in comparison.
  • Due to the face that he's dressed up similarly to Jason Voorhees during races, he's almost gotten in trouble from those who almost thought he was him, and definitely when the killer went after him one night, and he found himself in the House of Life and Death later.
  • At first, Toretto was cautious around him due to looking just like Decker Shaw, but after a heated race together as well as sharing stories after, they became fast friends.
  • Apparently used to be a NASCAR driver before things went badly for his world.
  • Being a Jason Statham fangirl, Aoi was esctatic to meet him. She felt bad for his situation, so she gave him some donuts to make him feel better, which Jensen appreciated for once.
