Pantheon / Diseases

Go To

One of the least visited houses in the pantheon, the Diseases sub-house is a quarantined area hosting all sorts of 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 air lock 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.

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

  • 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 Asympthomatic 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
  • 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, Shana, Mikoto Misaka, Keiko Ayano, Kisaragi, Holo The Wise Wolf, Chiyo Mihama, Yotsuba Koiwai, Mai Takatsukasa, Nana
  • Enemies: None, as far she is concerned. Springtrap and Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa may be the sole exceptions.
  • Odd Friendships: Tingle, Eren Yeagar
  • Watched by: The GUAE Mutation Lair, 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.
