Pantheon / Diseases

Go To

One of the least visited areas in the Pantheon, the Hall of Diseases is a quarantine area comprising most of the Quarantine half of the House of Health and Diseases. It hosts all sorts of deadly bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. Initially conceived as a sterile disease research facility, Nurgle's influence along with the presence of Pestilence the Horseman and Typhus have turned it into a rotting lab connected to his garden. Numerous airlock seals have been placed to keep the rest of the Pantheon safe, and all scientists are covered head to toe in the best protective clothing money can buy.

Asides from quarantine, this house is used to find cures to various plagues. The Grand United Alliance of Evil uses it to develop germ warfare, and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction wants to use it to wipe everyone they can off the map.

Breathe deep, mortal. I would have you hear me well, so let these vapors fill your lungs.

Peryite, Daedric Prince Of Supernatural Plagues (The Taskmaster, Master of Tasks, Bringer of Disease and Pestilence, Blighted Lord, Lord of Infection and Pestilence, Lord of the Natural Order, Lord of Abundant Pus and Vomit)

  • Banned from: The House of Magic and Sorcery
  • When you hear the word “order” you may think of it in terms of structure, of laws necessary for society to function. You may think of the people who work to uphold it, for good or for ill or some combination of the two. But there is so much more to that word than that side. There is the natural order, the growth and decay of things throughout life. People live, people die, such is the harsh reality of it. It is here that Peryite’s job is to enforce this natural order through his pestilence. Rot and disease are his trade, for he even gives them out as “gifts” to his followers, and Peryite himself has connections to the infamous Thrassian Plague: A continent wide epidemic that culled half of the entire population of Tamriel thanks to the scheming of the Sload.
  • The sun was young on a misty morning after some soft rainfall in midnight. Everyone was about to begin taking on the new day when all of a sudden someone screamed bloody murder. Bracing themselves, the neighboring deities stormed in to source only to be pushed out of the way as they were pursued by... rats. Big rats. Nearing the size of dogs and cats and having made their nest in someone's rickety old cellar. It was here that the Courier took on a minor task from a fellow god to go deal with it after having made a stop so they might as well take a detour. Wouldn't take very long. And indeed it did as there are only a couple dozen of them. Fisihing off the last one the Mojave's notorious mailman prepared to head back up until the floor gave out under them.
    • The cellar, as it turned out, has an extension that had been sealed for some time now if the multitude of vermin and pests hadn't gave that away. Annoyed but not deterred, the Courier set off to find an exit (or make one if it comes down to that). After evaluating themselves enough they came across a buried statue which begun to speak about an offer. A task, if you will, regarding the retrieval of items on interest in The Great Treasury. Taking a moment to weigh in the opportunity they turned them down and prepared to book it when things inevitably went south. To their surprise, the voice then congratulated them on their ability to refuse and bid them a friendly farewell until the Courier changed their mind one day. They need only follow the same path to Peryite.
      The Courier: "'Refusal indicates maturity'. Alright then, that happened."
  • Peryite isn’t popular with his fellow Princes, being one of the few orderly Daedra compared the overwhelmingly number of chaotic ones. This is especially in the case of Vaermina. He is considered to be the weakest of all the Daedric Princes, the glaring keyword here being considered. Peryite is a Prince nonetheless with powers that still far outclass many. And such opinions are only attributed by mortals, people who wouldn’t have a definitive gauge on how powerful someone like him is. In other words, Peryite only looks weak, particularly so because he doesn't do much on Tamriel. While the rest of Daedric Princes are out filling their agendas and expanding their spheres of influence, Peryite is satisfied with how things are already and has little reason to interfere and his work relates to the managing of Oblivion's lower depths.
    • Now you may ask yourself 'If he's so withdrawn from matters outside of Oblivion why is he even in the Pantheon in the first place?' A good question, and its answer has two parts to it. With the various Daedric Princes having flocked to the Pantheon, with the bonus of their presences not being restricted by barriers, it seemed to have stirred up something fierce in Oblivion, and it got bad enough that Peryite had to join in on instating himself in the Pantheon whether his kin liked it or not. After enough time observing the strange place the Blighted Lord came to the conclusion that with how unnatural the Pantheon is. Death is trivial along with fates more horrific, more permanent and potent or some combination of the two. And many, many universes have collided into this singular place. It became clear to Peryite that this world is in dire need of a special blessing. And he's more than up to the task.
  • And speaking of, his heavy affinity with plagues alongside a fairly friendly demeanor has earned many, many comparisons to the Chaos God Nurgle. Not that they aren't baseless accusations, and you better believe both parties are aware of it. However, in spite of their similar crafts and domains they are not allies for the simple reason being difference in motivation. How they use pestilence to further their ends are quite different: Rot and decay are inevitable, so Nurgle and his afflicted endure and perpetuate it while Peryite believes the cleansing of the world to ultimately just be a process and that anymore is just excessive. Having said that, very few people would of actually known each other's rivalry when accounting both of their dispositions.
    • As for his House, he's amicable enough with the likes of Typhus and Thrax even if Nurgle got to them first and the former is fiercely loyal to the Chaos God. Alexei Stukov and the duo consisting of Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin view Peryite with disdain. Outside of his House the Taskmaster showed an interest in Albert Wesker but reasoned that his infantile motivations would lead to eventual betrayal not unlike a previous former follower whom the Dragonborn disposed of and thus is preparing for such a day. Openly affiliating himself with the Daedric Prince caused every other heroic Resident Evil deity to take notice of Wesker and label the Taskmaster as their enemy as well.
  • Guarding the lower levels of Oblivion it would only make sense that his realm, the Pits, would be not too far off. Peryite's realm is not unlike the description of a Fire and Brimstone Hell: Molten seas, burning skies, barren landscape. It is said to be very similar in appearance to another Daedric Prince's realm, the Deadlands belonging to Mehrunes Dagon. There isn't much else to say about the place, not many people go and willingly visit save for one incident involving his followers wanting to interact with Peryite. Instead of summoning him they instead sent their souls to his realm of Oblivion, though luckily a hero went in and guided them back on their god's behalf.
  • His avatars and many of his depictions take the form of a slim green dragon. Mind you, he has no associations with them other than appearances alone. Peryite does so as a joke on Akatosh, nothing more. Other reports had him more fittingly appear as Skeevers, though they are few and far between his dragon bodies. Many dragons have found that weird but have not dwelled on it for very long. Having claimed himself as his First-Born, Alduin does not appreciate the joke, a sentiment greatly shared with Acnologia, who is perhaps much more vocal about it. The Taskmaster, meanwhile, hasn't given their opinions on himself the time of day. Or maybe he did and just silently sniggers at it, you'll never know with a Prince like him honestly.
  • While Peryite schemes to create a vile blight upon the world many stand ready to take the fight to his afflicted. The League of Explorers have fought beings and monsters associated with the wasting sickness and for this very reason view Peryite as no different. Meanwhile Peryite's presence in the Pantheon further fuels SCP-049 of an imaginary plague that he must cure. Peryite commends him for a focused goal in life, even if he will only "save" some people from the Prince's inevitable cleansing.
  • Attributed to the Taskmaster is the Daedric Artifact called Spellbreaker. A shield which, as the name would imply, is very effective at guarding its user from all sorts of magic and sorcery. Be it projecting wards to nullify any attack or silencing the caster altogether, Spellbreaker is a hard counter to those versed in the arcane arts. The trick here, much to the relief of the Pantheon's many magi, is that it doesn't remain in the possession of someone for very long as Spellbreaker apparently still searches for its original owner. Though the GUAG Magus Killers are not at all dissuaded by the little caveat and seek being able to use it against Pantheon's many magical foes for their more critical moments. In some attempt to prevent any accidents the House of Magic and Sorcery issued a ban on Peryite and his followers and has encouraged anyone to report sightings of Spellbreaker. The Prince thinks the latter would have been enough.
  • It goes without saying that the man-made pathogens in Maximum Security intrigue Peryite. From the T-Virus and G-Virus to FEV and the Simian Flu humanity has developed no shortage of cataclysmic weapons on the microscopic scale. The Plague Inc. Kit in particular has struck a special interest for the Blighted Lord for its sheer versatility, sometimes bordering on the impossible with its ability to recreate certain events that don't lag behind in apocalyptic potential. Though this isn't to discredit the mutated strain of the Cordyceps fungi and the Infected sealed alongside with it in its own special walls.
    • While observing The Great Treasury for other items of interest he witnessed the place hit by yet another attack from strange creatures, those who are an unearthly mishmash of flesh and machine, the Technocyte Infestation. Peryite sees a bit of potential in the Hive Mind in their bid to assimilate all that they can and has taken note. Hearing that Wesker has done a bit of experiments on the Infested himself through the creation of newer B.O.W.s only made it better in Peryite's eyes. While his fellow Princes continue to sneer at the Taskmaster at each opportunity given to them, this same disdain and arrogance does not apply to much of the Pantheon's populace especially with new information being tossed around such as this.
Now, I've prattled on long enough. It's been a pleasure.

Intermediate Gods

Typhus, God of Plagues (Typhus the Traveller, Calas Typhon, The Herald of Nurgle, Host of the Destroyer Hive)

Lesser Gods

    Alexei Stukov 
Alexei Stukov, God of Viral Transformation (Vice-Admiral, Infested Admiral)
Stukov before his infestation
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His hat and a remnant of the United Earth Directorate insignia
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (formerly Lawful Evil)
  • Portfolio: Vice-Admiral of the UED Expeditionary Fleet and Competent Officer, Once pure Human, Coffin Shot into Space, Russian Taking Many Pain like Betrayal, Vodka Drinker, Cannot Return Back to Earth And Anticipates the UED's return
  • Domains: Virus, Transformation
  • Allies: Kerrigan, Zagara, Abathur, Raynor, Artanis
  • Enemies: Samir Duran, Arcturus Mengsk, Albert Wesker, The Borg Queen, Nurgle, Typhus
  • Odd Friendship: Heavy, Aya Brea, Zarya
  • The Zerg has developed a incurable (only because it develops too quickly) disease known as the Hyper-evolutionary virus that can transform any humans into infest terrans. For example, this man was the Vice-Admiral of the UED Expeditionary Fleet who died during the conflict called the Brood War. His corpse was shot off into space and was apparently founded by a renegade cerebrate named Kaloth who revived and infested him. He was saved by Raynor and several Protoss with an experimental cure, in which it failed much later when he was experimented by Moebius Foundation. He eventually escaped the Foundation and contacted Kerrigan with the Skygeirr Station destroyed and the leader Emil Narud dead, he has joined the Swarm with no where else to go.
    • Long story short, everything sucks for him and is now a zombie man.
    Stukov: Let's recap. I was betrayed and killed, shot into space, captured by the zerg, resurrected and infested, cured, given to Moebius to research the protoss cure, and was instead experimented on as the cure slowly failed. Everyone up to speed? Good.
  • He is allies with Raynor and Artanis, despite being antagonistic toward each other during the Brood War. Though they were responsible for freeing him from Kaloth's control and giving him an experimental cure. Even if it didn't work, he commends them for trying.
  • Since he was infected and transformed by a virus, he admit to not liking the Borg Queen despite some similarity to Kerrigan. Perhaps unlike Kerrigan, she wasn't fully involved with his transformation and she is also transformed like him, unlike that of the Queen.
    • He is disgusted with Nurgle who makes viruses for the sake of creating plagues and death, unlike his virus which transformed him and becoming an agent of the Zerg. The same goes for his follower, Typhus. When he said he likes to face a god since his alliance with Kerrigan, he certainly want to do that now.
  • He often miss the day of drinking vodka because of his new biology as an infested terrans, which prevents him from having the same enjoyment from it (plus, everyone ran away from him before he could even be served in the House of Foods).
  • What he miss all is Earth, as he knew that he could no longer return to his home as an infested Terran and the fact that the United Earth Directorate hasn't given up on the Koprulu Sector yet. He want to lie low in the Pantheon as his presence might frighten many humans because of his infestation and it might alert the UED into the Pantheon.
  • When there are other Russian men who has suffer so much, he thought he had it worse. Thus, an strange friendship occurred as the result.
  • Obviously, he doesn't get along with Arcturus Mengsk due to past histories. Back when he was human, he was the second-in-command of the UED Fleet sent to overthrow him in the Brood War, and years later after becoming an infested terran, he aided Kerrigan in her quest for vengeance against him.
  • Wesker had shown interest in him as he injected himself a virus which made him much more stronger, even after death. He has considered making an alliance with the infested terran with such similar background, only to be disappointed that Stukov considered him a madman and predicted that he was going to be a test subject for his quest for perfection, something he'll not take.
    • His accomplice, William Birkins, doesn't get the reception much better with Stukov either as he injected his own virus to becoming a monster. Stukov is even more disgusted as his virus transformed into something much worse.
  • Stukov has used infest terrans as his primary force and as a former Vice-Admiral, he is still a military tactician. His forces is almost like that of a Terran army but infested by Zerg biology and tactics, making him one of the most unorthodox fighting force.
    Stukov: "My forces are unorthodox... but effective."
  • Aya Brea nearly aimed at him when she thought he was a mutated man, in which he ensures her that he mean no harm.
  • Stukov overheard from his fellow Zerg allies about the so called Nexus and so decided to find out what was it all about. He properly joined shortly after, apparently his time in the House of Health and Diseases made him develop viruses that are able to heal his allies and infect his enemies and now his arm is much bigger after the Zerg infestation grew stronger in him.
  • He is also seen in the House of Shape.

    Enju Aihara 
Enju Aihara, Goddess of Asymptomatic Carriers
  • Lesser Goddess (Could become an Intermediate Goddess when she fully transforms into a Gastrea)
  • Symbol: Her Baranium boots, right next to a rabbit
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Chaotic Evil as a Gastrea)
  • Portfolio: Unaware of Carrying a Disease That is Slowly Killing her and Being Kept that Way, Nice Girl, All-Loving Little Sister Heroine, Wide-Eyed Idealist, Technical Pacifist, Badass and Cute Kick Chick, Rabbit Motifs, Broken Cuties, Desiring to Have Friends, Optimistic Cheerful Child
  • Domains: Diseases, Corruption, Good, Hope, Rabbits, Suffering
  • Heralds: Rentaro Satomi (her Promoter), Kisara Tendo and Tina Sprout.
  • Allies: Kenzo Tenma, Teddie, Kira Yamato, Sayaka Miki, Shinji Kido/Kamen Rider Ryuki, Yuma Tsukumo, Takumi Inui/Kamen Rider Faiz, Kirito Kirigaya and Asuna Yuuki, Yui Kirigaya, Mikoto Misaka, Keiko Ayano, Kisaragi, Holo The Wise Wolf, Chiyo Mihama, Yotsuba Koiwai, Mai Takatsukasa, Nana
  • Enemies: None, as far she is concerned. Springtrap, Fenrir Greyback, and Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa may be the sole exceptions.
  • Odd Friendships: Tingle, Eren Yeagar
  • Watched by: Nurgle, Lucy
  • After being lynched by a lot of people, in-universe and otherwise, the Court of Gods and Enma Ai decided that enough is enough after receiving constant letters to send Enju Aihara out of the Pantheon, especially since they heard about her situation of being a girl who's constantly suffering and carrying a disease that is slowly turning her into a monstrous Gastrea and it would eventually kill her on top of that, so they decided to let her properly ascend into the Pantheon instead.
  • Even after her ascension, she is still being kept in the dark regarding the real reason of her ascension. Mostly because the gods don't know how she would react to the news.
  • After hearing about her desire of having friends, Teddie inmediately went with her and offered to be her friend. She accepted, feeling really thankful that someone understands.
  • Gets along with Yuma Tsukumo and Shinji Kido for having a similar personality (both) to hers and receiving foreign hatred (the former).
    • Tingle can also be seen with her for the latter reason. He can also be seen acting a little nicer when around her.
  • Sayaka feels sad about her because her disease is slowly transforming her into a monstrosity and Enju is unaware of it, similar to her former situation as a Magical Girl. And it's even worst, because there isn't a known cure for her condition yet. At least she could have used Grief Seeds.
  • Lucy is ambivalent about her. While her idealism reminds her of Nana (whom she really didn't like), she feels that if Enju does become evil as a Gastrea, it will be because of the suffering those humans are making her feel. She may help her should that happen.
    • And it's because of Lucy's interest in Enju that Nana has decided to make her feel as happy as she can to prevent her from becoming evil... and that not all humans and Diclonii are monsters.
  • The entire Mutation Lair are very interested in examinating her to see if they can reproduce and create a copy of the Gastrea virus. The same can be about Nurgle, who wants her to learn the truth so she may join him in spreading it.
  • Enju, Eren, Kirito and Asuna decided to behave more maturely than their respective fanbases by becoming friends. While her relationship to Eren has been seen as weird given their opposite personalities, Kirito and Asuna regard Enju in a similar way as their adopted daughter Yui. They even presented her to Enju so they may be friends too.
    • Though Enju seems to be more closer to Eren than he is to her, for some reason.
  • She has an air of infinite absolute forgiveness and kindness, which is the reason why many were surprised when they heard about her dislike of Springtrap, saying that hare is a horrible twist of her bunny motif. Though to be fair with her, Springtrap used to be a serial killer of children like her.
    • Even then, she really doesn't like the thought of actually killing her enemies. This has made her earn the respect of Kira Yamato and Herr Doktor Tenma, both of whom share the feeling.
  • Has become friends with Silica and Kisaragi due to having a similar voice to hers. Also in former's case due to both having unrequited crushes on an older person and in the latter's case, Kisaragi feels that she might become similar to her if Enju turns into a Gastrea, though she hasn't picked up the courage to actually tell the child about this.
  • Once assisted Rentarou Satomi in a series of battles. Turns out she first met Kirito, Asuna, Mikoto, Shana and Holo there. The fact that they all come from light novels probably helps to cement their friendship.
    • She also met Kino then, but they haven't spoken much of it due to the latter's more aloof personality.
  • However, not everything has gone well for Enju, even after her ascension. Many are really afraid that she might start spreading the virus in the Pantheon (to the misfortune of her allies, who may be banned of visiting her) and the more pragmatic and cynic gods are willing to try to Mercy Kill her (which did not sit well with the more idealistic ones).
    • Of course, even the more pragmatic deities were disgusted by Masato Kusaka, who also claimed that he wanted to Mercy Kill Enju. Yeah, right. He actually scares her, since he reminds her of the treatment she often gets as a Cursed Child.

    Nick Ramos 
Nick Ramos, God of Virus Immunity (Number 12, The Orphan, Honey, Sweetie [the latter two by Rhonda])
  • Lesser God
  • Symbols: The Wrench O' Rama Logo And A Sledge Saw (also his Signature Weapon)
  • Theme Music: Nick's Themes from Dead Rising 3
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: One of Carlito's Fifty Orphans (As In, The Guy Who is Immune), The Hero, Beware the Nice Ones, Protective Instinct Towards Diego, Cowardly Lion (At First), Healing Factor, MacGyvering, Nice Guy, Only Sane Man, These Hands Have Killed, Took A Levelin Badass, Unfazed Everyman, You Are Number Twelve
  • Domains: Custom Weapons. Mechanics, Survival
  • Heralds: Rhonda Kreske and Dick Baker
  • Allies: Chuck Greene, Frank West, Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, Leon Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Issac Clarke, Scooter, The Zombieland Crew, Lee Everett and Clementine, Saeko Busujima, Rei Miyamoto, Juliet Starling, Rick Grimes, Joel and Ellie (mostly Ellie), The Engineer, Banjo and Kazooie
  • Enemies: Albert Wesker, Alex Wesker, Big Brother, Azmodan
  • Nick Ramos was just one of many normal individuals living in the city of Los Perdidos, until a surprise outbreak occurred and now Nick and his friends had to fight for his life. His origins were even more clouded in mystery, as he was Conveniently an Orphan and had a strange number tattooed on his neck and the reason for that would change Nick's life forever. Turns out, he was one of the several orphan boys that Carlito Keyes used as his sleeper agents to get his revenge on the United States for what transpired on Santa Cabeza. The key difference that Carlito engineered Nick to be immune to the parasites that caused the infection and the one that could bring the cure once and for all. After defeating General Hemlock and several of his goons, Nick donated his blood to Isabela Keyes to develop a cure and end Phenotrans hold over the population with their Zombrex.
  • Nick was recommended by his possible future father-in-law, Chuck Greene. Turns out the girl he has been pining for a while and knew as Annie turned out to be Katey Greene, Chuck's daughter who ran away after seeing the wreck of a man Chuck became to keep her from turning. While initially hostile to Nick, he warmed up to him after seeing he has his heart in the right place and was brave enough to end Hemlock's reign of terror. Plus, he wanted to have someone he could trust in the Pantheon alongside him.
  • He's heard stories about Frank West but never managed to meet the man himself in person and frankly found him to be too much of a goofball. He still respects the guy for what he did back in Willamette and the fact he personally knows Chuck and have fought together in the past to be a plus. Frank personally thanked Nick for finally being the one to provide the cure for the infection, no longer being forced to rely on Zombrex to survive.
  • Given his special properties, agents from the B.S.S.A. were dispatched to get in contact with Nick in order to hear an account of his experience in Los Perdidos. Both Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine were the first to get Nick's story out in the Pantheon and knowing his immunity, he gained the attention of several ex-umbrella members, chief among them were Albert and Alex Wesker looking to experiment on Nick's blood and the virus from his universe, something that the BSSA was actively trying to prevent. Nick ended up becoming close friends with allies of the BSSA, Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin on the fact that they have been too wanted for their special immune properties, mostly Jake given his natural immunity to the C-Virus, and while the former did find Nick to be kind of a coward at first he ended up praising his combat skills and quick wit.
  • Nick has found common ground with a lot of deities that hail from a Zombie Apocalypse setting and found a lot of strange allies along the way (he is used to meeting strange people anyway, as long as they aren't psychopaths). He's got a lot in common with Ellie, being a fellow dorky survivor who happens to be The Immune to the infection of her setting, but he is a bit on the fence with Joel considering his methods and his history as a hunter. He also tends to hang around the Zombieland Crew, finding their antics to be quite ridiculous. Like Columbus, Nick happens to be a very cowardly but badass survivor nonetheless.
  • He encountered a series of psychopaths based on the Seven Deadly Sins and given his rather unfortunate experience with them he would rather avoid anything related to that. He had the displeasure of encountering an actual demon in the Pantheon, the Lord of Sin Azmodan who to him was like Darlene behaved like Dylan Fuentes.
  • Mechanic by profession, Nick is very proficient at building things, an ability which has come in handy for him and his allies numerous times. He also specializes in transforming cars into extravagant killing machines, which had saved his ass plenty of times. He has worked with several mechanics and engineers in the Pantheon who find his creations interesting, mostly with the Mann co's Engineer and Scooter.
    • He also ended up making a fairly unlike ally in the form of Banjo and Kazooie. The two in one of their adventures crafted all sorts of wacky vehicles, some of which impressed Nick to the point of wanting to replicate a couple of them.
  • The government of the United States became a lot more controlling of its population following the outbreak in Fortune City. Numerous people had been surveilled in case they would turn and implanted chips with Zombrex and a GPS to track them. Said government was the one behind the outbreak of Los Perdidos in conjunction with the company Phenotrans, even killing the President of the USA when her plane crashed into the city. So it's no wonder why Nick dislikes authoritarian governments, particularly the likes of Big Brother.
  • Being the holder of The Immune doesn't mean that Nick is immune to all the potential viruses from other universe, he is just immune to the one from his setting. Although some theories suggest he could potentially resist other infections but Nick isn't really thrilled to find out.
  • Not a big fan of military figures, didn't have a good experience with the U.S. Army as you might have figured out. He tries to stay away from the House of Military and Warfare as he doesn't like getting shot at.

  • Arthur Morgan was an outlaw and a formerly destitute orphan under the service of Dutch van der Linde as his main enforcer in Dutch’s goals to provide a haven for his gang. A capable, yet notorious Old West gangster even during said era’s dying days, Arthur participated in many of Dutch’s schemes to rob and collect as much money as possible, with each attempt becoming more risky and forcing their group to relocate as well as several other tasks involving intimidation, making deals and alliances, collecting debt, hunting animals, and building up resources. Overall, Arthur was Dutch’s most favored subordinate, seeing him as an honorary son, and was the gang’s most active and accomplished member as well as their most effective gunslinger.
    • Unfortunately, things would take a dark turn for Arthur as a failed attempt to collect someone's debt caused Arthur to contract tuberculosis, a fact whose symptoms he would ignore and downplay until his diagnosis was received too late. Furthermore, Dutch’s plans became even more insane and chaotic, leading to the deaths of several loyal members and Arthur questioning his loyalty and admiration for his superior. After several heists going wrong, being stranded on a remote island for days, and his diagnosis, Arthur began to reflect on his life and the choices he made, eventually standing up for himself and his loved ones upon realizing that Dutch had lost himself and become too self-absorbed, paranoid, and destructive, destroying their relationship. After saving his friends and loyal comrades one last time by confronting and battling the gang’s betrayer, Micah Bell, and chiding his former idol about their life choices and mistakes, Arthur would pass away all alone, with his death being avenged years later by his closest surviving compatriot, John Marston.
  • Though Arthur’s tale came to a tragic end, he would be given a second chance in another world, a fact that surprised the grizzled outlaw. Arthur’s first days in the Pantheon were what he described as “nothing much” as in he wandered around a scrub region, initially believing he was in the afterlife before he arrived in a town and his subsequent exploration made him realize the new situation he was in. It was a lot to take in, but Arthur would eventually accept his place in the divine realms, though given how he was an outlaw throughout almost the entirety of his mortal life, Arthur wasn't sure of how he was going to acclimate to a new lifestyle, though he did internally accept that he could potentially put his old days behind and lead something new and unique for him. He is rather apathetic to being considered a god, however, feeling that such a title doesn't suit him, and as far as he is concerned, the authority and events surrounding the greater, more definitive gods in the Pantheon don't matter to him.
  • A gruff and rather cynical man, Arthur is not out to make friends, but he is, nevertheless, defined by his loyalty and care for his fellow gang members and loved ones, which sadly makes up for a part of his tragic tale due to Dutch's growing insanity, lack of care, and eventual betrayal. Beyond that, Arthur is a very well-versed and capable man, being adept in gunfighting, close-quarters combat, and thievery, in addition to being disciplined and well-tempered enough to make him a professional in his craft. Despite his cynical nature, Arthur is not above helping out strangers if he can get a decent paycheck out of it, though recent developments have seen him helping others simply because it's the right thing to do, a result of his tuberculosis diagnosis and coming to terms with mortality and morality. Despite Arthur's occupation, those who personally know him have cited him as a good man, despite Arthur insisting the contrary, and while he is free of Dutch's influence in the Pantheon and can pursue whatever life he chooses to do so, Arthur is not too sure of what he's going to do, musing that it would take some time before he finds his calling in the divine realms.
  • Arthur was happy to learn that John and Jack Marston had ascended before he did and was open to reuniting with them. However, he was upset to learn that not only would John return to his old days due to uncontrollable circumstances, but Jack would also become an outlaw himself, something that both men tried to avert, feeling that Jack does not deserve to lead an outlaw life given its dangers and the reputation it holds for the common folk. Still, the three of them being in the divine realms didn't stop them from meeting with one another. Arthur is at least happy that John, Abigail, and Jack did lead a comfortable life for some years, meaning that Arthur’s sacrifice was at least worth it to some degree. As the Pantheon was a more lenient and accepting world compared to the Midwestern United States during the 19th and early 20th Centuries, there’s a chance for Arthur, John, and Jack to finally lead an ordinary life and find themselves away from being pursued and endangered. Of course, they would need new friends and allies first, something which Arthur isn't entirely sure about given his past reputation and his gruff nature.
  • The Old Western Outlaw Archetype persisted in the Pantheon and several deities represented such, to Arthur’s surprise, considering how that came to be dissipated over time. From personal experience, he believes the outlaw life is honestly not worth living for, so he finds some trouble in getting along with the fact that some were potentially decent people as outlaws were generally remorseless criminals. This led him to meet with the Man With No Name, Butch Cassidy, The Sundance Kid, and the Magnificent Seven, all of whom respected Arthur’s decision to want to find some kind of purpose in the Pantheon and generally being friendly faces for him. They wish they could help Arthur in his personal journey, but given his many problems and his preferring to be alone for a while, progress has been slow.
  • Due to his service under Dutch as well as the many criminal activities the gang got involved in, such as robbery, property damage, civilian endangerment, murder, resisting arrest, and bordering on domestic terrorism, Arthur is not very well-liked by many law enforcement, not helped by his conflict against the Pinkerton Agency led by Andrew Milton. Arthur does believe that he deserves punishment and doesn't fault the House of Law and Justice for seeing him as a wanted person. If anything, he's served time there as well before being released on bail, though he keeps his head under cover regarding them. He was, however, perplexed to see how the justice system has changed, namely how softer things have gotten regarding punishment and prison environment, though Arthur thinks that certain criminals do deserve death. On the other hand, there are a few law enforcers who are somewhat sympathetic towards Arthur as he does seem remorseful of his sins while others are adamant that his complicity in Dutch’s actions make him just as guilty as his superior. By extension, Arthur is also wary of US-Official soldiers due to his role in fighting against a Civil War veteran in legally taking over a piece of land owned by Native Americans, though Arthur is quick to point out that said veteran was an awful piece of garbage who deserved to die by his hand, even if he wished the overall outcome of the conflict went differently.
  • If Angelo Bronte was of any indication, the criminal landscape between the 19th and 20th centuries changed from outlaws to organized crime, a direction that neither Dutch nor Arthur was accepting of, albeit for differing reasons. Furthermore, the Pantheon reflected upon this as organized crime organizations were the most recurring types of criminals in the divine realms and although they were very successful and influential, Arthur had very little, if any, respect for them as it became clear that the consequences of being a member of organized crime is no different from an outlaw’s, just participate in a crime, gain wealth and power, and bask in glory, all of which he had already seen in Dutch and Bronte. As a result, he puts a lot of distance from well-known crime lords like Penguin and Kingpin, feeling that their influence is more a poison towards hardworking and poor people than anything else. Arthur has also dealt with serial murderers, cannibals, robbers, and slavers, and he’s made it clear he disdains them just as much as most people, being willing to verbally and literally blast apart Calvin Candie and Stephen if they ever come close to him or the Marstons.
    • Arthur despises hidden informants, mainly a thought he gained after Micah’s treachery and betrayal of Dutch’s gang. Furthermore, he has no respect for those who want to cause chaos and murder solely for the sake of it, again, because of his experience working with Micah. Sure, Micah is nowhere in the Pantheon (yet), but there are a few criminals such as Bullseye, Mr. Zsasz, Jack the Architect, and Jack the Ripper whose sadistic and demented crime sprees are reminiscent of the murderous outlaw. While they would earn Arthur’s enmity, the former outlaw doesn’t put much effort into hunting them down as his main priority is to figure out what to do with his time in the Pantheon, but Arthur does make it clear he will try to kill them if they ever come across him. Tommy Angelo proved rather polarizing as he turned out to be a mole to the Mafia, though, unlike Micah, his reasons were because ‘’he’’ was the one betrayed and he reported to the police to save himself, and this was after a long time admitting that the Mafia life wasn’t for him. Being a police informant meant that Arthur found it difficult to reach out to Tommy, though the two do have a measure of respect for each other thanks to their similar thoughts on a criminal lifestyle as well as wanting to do something better for themselves outside of crime.
    • Arthur’s most notable trait, aside from his talent as a gunslinging fighter, is his staunch loyalty towards his gang. Caustic as he may be, Arthur loved his fellow members as if they were brothers and saw Dutch like a father. If there's one thing criminal organizations keep consistent to some degree, it's maintaining loyalty and camaraderie, something Arthur almost respects were it not for said lifestyle’s detrimental and toxic influence and impact on others. Some gangs like the Peaky Blinders and the DiMeo Family advocate loyalty, though are not without their vices and while they are aware of Arthur’s reputation, they make a point to give the man his preferred privacy and Arthur himself has made it clear that he has no intentions to be working alongside them. On a personal note, Arthur noted how the Peaky Blinders’ don, Tommy Shelby, was a traumatized family man and warfighter who struggles with anxiety much like himself and pities the man while the many members of the DiMeo were incredibly dysfunctional people who barely held on to their desire for loyalty. While Tony Soprano and Christopher Moltisanti are somewhat pitiable, Arthur is nevertheless wary of them due to their short tempers and committing petty acts with very little provocation, even snarking that Christopher ought to get his shit together by getting his addiction treated first
  • Arthur is an orphan, but besides that, his past is largely unknown, save for the fact that Dutch and Hosea found him when Arthur was 14, and took him under their care, and this is what fostered Arthur’s loyalty and dedication towards them. It's clear that he doesn't like dwelling on the past, but he does have a soft spot for the House of Childhood and Adolescence partly because it does seem to be a housing spot for many orphans and he's content to see that they have a happier, healthier upbringing thanks to a genuinely good parental figure later on compared to what he went through with Arthur, plus him seeing Jack as a surrogate uncle meant that he sometimes looked after the boy for John and Abigail’s sake. For someone who has a low opinion of modern society, Arthur is satisfied to learn that at least there is an effort made to ensure future generations don't turn out like him being forced into a life of crime and always running from authorities because of that. That, and during his visits to the House, he tends to be nicer than usual and is willing to somewhat greet kids like Anne-Marie, Oliver Twist, and Annie and give them light assurances.
    • In contrast to orphans being a lighter topic, having a family is much more sensitive. This is because Arthur had a relationship with a maid named Eliza and their relationship bore them a son named Issac. Arthur did try to make an effort to balance his life between being an outlaw and a family man, but all this was for naught when Eliza and Issac were killed in a robbery simply for $10. Very few people know about this detail and Arthur still mainly keeps it to himself, only confiding it if he wants to relate to someone and provide them a reason for why he sometimes tries to help a needy family out. This, alongside his tumultuous relationship with Mary Linton years later is the main reason why he is hesitant to go near the House of Love and Affection and, on a lesser note, that of Family and Relatives, clearly not wanting to constantly be reminded of his mistakes. This also served as a reason why he was upset to hear about Jack becoming an outlaw as well as being critical towards anybody who expected their offspring to become their heir and succeed them in their crime endeavors as Arthur finds the overall notion to be revolting and counterproductive, which is unfortunately not rare in the current world of criminality.
  • Arthur has a fascination for nature and wildlife which, oddly enough, is a reason why he stuck with the outlaw life instead of settling down in a town or city. He felt that persecution reached new heights as did dishonesty and a lack of trust. This led to disdain for capitalism, though much of it had to do with his upbringing by Dutch, who was a noted anarchist. While Arthur has since grown out of his foster father’s influence, his apathy and pessimism towards industrialized society remained. Of particular note, the Glukkons were a key reminder of why despite their extraterrestrial nature, their business practices were very predatory and caused untold destruction and discord towards many people, with Arthur noting that the Glukkons' actions were not too different from what Leviticus Cornwall did to impoverished settlements and towns. The Pantheon itself had a lot of highly advanced and industrialized cities and settlements, though, despite Arthur's attitude on the subject, he doesn't have much gripes against it and makes it clear he prefers to be in a simpler place regarding a residence.
  • While Arthur isn't by any means, a good man (at least up until being diagnosed with tuberculosis), he's adamant about his belief that the outlaw life isn't worth it, even if he spent most of his life as one. Being in the Pantheon and getting a second chance in life has been difficult for Arthur given his upbringing, but aside from hunting and an occasional betting game, finding a legitimate job has been tough. Looking at John, seeing that he earned a job as a farm rancher made Arthur proud and while Jack becoming an outlaw after his parents’ deaths was disheartening, becoming a legitimate writer, much like Mary-Beth later on, did assuage some angst on Arthur’s part. Given his belief, Arthur would rather keep his distance from the House of Crime and Transgressions and is visibly annoyed that John has a domain there, not to mention the House taking the shape of a large Vice City doesn't help matters with Arthur’s pessimistic view on industrialized society. For now, Arthur is doing the most he can to put his former occupation behind as much as he can buy being a drifter out to either help people out of convenience or to get enough money to sustain his needs, at least until he can make up his mind on what job and occupation would be ideal for him.
  • Tuberculosis is a terrible disease to think about due to its symptoms and the damage it inflicts on one’s body and back in the 19th century, being caught with said disease was a death sentence due to cures and medication for such not being properly invented around that time. Although Arthur is fully free from tuberculosis in the Pantheon, the emotional turmoil and impact the disease gave him is fully intact and he’s aware of it, not to mention even when his health was at its worst, Arthur insisted on wanting to help his surrogate family as much as he could, wanting to make sure his death left an impact. He found a relatable spirit in the historical samurai, Okita Souji, who was also a prodigy in his line of work and contracted tuberculosis that sealed his death at a young age. Both men were impressed by each other’s similarities and traded a few quips with each other, but Arthur preferred not to get involved with “samurai business” because getting involved with lords would just interfere with his personal odyssey. At the very least, effective medical treatments for tuberculosis exists in the Pantheon, to which Arthur responded why it took “so damn long” for that to happen.
    • Despite his reputation as a feared and capable gunslinger and outlaw who some would consider a badass, Arthur admitted that his tuberculosis diagnosis did rattle and upset him. Furthermore, he was afraid that he would die miserably, contemplating the decisions he made whilst feeling his body rot from such a terrible disease. This realization caused him to try genuinely helping other people beyond just his gang family, even if they went against Dutch’s plans or the person in need of help had nothing to do with Arthur. Despite his fears, he would come to accept his death and make the most of his time doing something worthwhile, which came in the form of saving John and whoever remained of Dutch’s gang. In the Pantheon, he’s rather quiet about his epiphany save for a few people, though felt a bit grumbled that he couldn’t properly relate with others on this, if he can help it, he does donate some money to the poor, give stranded souls a ride back home, and offer some medical aid. He would discover that there were two girls, namely Kaori Miyazono and Sakura Yamauchi, who wanted to inspire and help someone and make the most of their life after contracting a terminal disease. While Kaori and Sakura did earn some respect on Arthur’s part, he would rather not meet them, feeling that he might accidentally drag them into his complicated life and simply thinking they’re better off happy in the Pantheon without his association.
  • Arthur has a strong affinity for horses and always has one by his company. He doesn't just keep it for transportation either as Arthur would often pet and train his horse and would take it to the Hall of Ungulates to allow it to be in the company of fellow horses. As a bonus, said Hall is one of the few places where Arthur isn't treated with caution and suspicion and the place’s more natural and peaceful setting makes it one of Arthur’s favorite places to visit, one where he could relax and have a semblance of quality time that has nothing to do with outlaw and criminal activities. Naturally, he has a level of respect for loyal horses like Agro, Maximus, Black Beauty, and Epona and while one like Spirit is a challenge to respect and tame, Arthur still appreciates him for his grit and determined nature. Additionally, Arthur gained a measure of respect for, of all people, Hazel Levesque for her affinity towards horses. She was a bit surprised to see a known outlaw having positive thoughts about her regarding horses, but at least Hazel and Arthur have something in common and don't mind each other’s presence. Still, that doesn't stop Arthur from hunting animals in his spare time, though he states that he does it mainly for self-sustenance to craft food and clothing to keep him in shape, he's not one to take pleasure in killing animals. That said, Arthur did muse about the idea of hunting dragons and dinosaurs, even if he isn't going to for obvious reasons and feeling that he's better off hunting regular animals, clearly knowing his limits.
We can’t change what's done, we can only move on.
