Queen Umbra
Umbra's final form with her minions 
  • Exclusive to Umbra:
    • Umbra Just wants to reclaim Lemuria and Melkor managed to tempt her to his side with promises to help with that so long as she works with him to take over the Pantheon.
    • Half of the Bringers of Everlasting Night (Yami, Balanar, the Grand Duke of Owls) were impressed with Umbra's removal of the Sun. The other half (Nightmare Moon, David Zappa) aren't as comfortable given she's taken the Moon as well, and given it's one of their domains, especially for Nightmare, but they're willing to work with her.
    • Has a crippling weakness; unlike most "bosses", she has no Contractual Boss Immunity. With the exception of Instant Death, she's as susceptible to Status Effects as any Random Encounter monster.
      • As such she has a greater despisal for the Malboro than any other boss character and always makes the time to strike it down from range.
      • Another she takes great precaution in is against the Elder Dragon Vaal Hazak for its ability to cut entire health bars in half with the Effluvium it produces. Vaal meanwhile doesn’t appreciate someone with a character such as hers being able to bear the appearance of a dragon. That being said, Vaal isn’t leaving the Rotten Vale anytime soon, so the two have no reason to come into contact with another.

    Katara 
Katara, Goddess of Ice Water (Sugar Queen, Sweetness, Sweetie, Gran Gran, Madame Fussy Britches, Kat, The Painted Lady, Sapphire Fire)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/atla_katara.png
When older. 
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Water Tribe crest
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Waterbending, Emotional Anchors, Team Mom, An Ice Person, Those That Make Speeches, Healers, Second-in-Command, Fast Learners, Old Master, (Literally) Strong Women, People Puppets, Not Someone To Anger, Violently Protective Girlfriend, Happy In Marriage
  • Domains: Chaos, Good, Ice, Justice, Mercy, Water
  • Heralds: Kya and Bumi (her children)
  • Allies: Aang (her husband), Tenzin (her son), Sokka (her brother), Toph Beifong, Zuko, Korra, Asami Sato, Lin Beifong, Mako, Bolin, Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Percy Jackson, Nami, Naruto Uzumaki, Hinata Hyuuga, Alexastrasza, Edward and Alphonse Elric
  • On speaking terms with: Mr. Freeze
  • Enemies: YHVH, Azula, Zaheer, Ozai
  • Opposes: Kuvira, Strong Bad, Wiz and Boomstick
  • True to her nature, Katara's considered a motherly figure to her allies in the Pantheon, and is loved by most of the younger children gods (when she's not a stick in the mud). And true to her motherly nature, she's not afraid to defend her charges.
  • She used to have a spot in the House of Nature as Co-Goddess of Water, but decided that with Aquaman already having the position covered, she could focus more on this seat. However, thanks to some restructuring, she returned to Nature as Goddess of Ice Magic Is Water as waterbenders are able to create ice from the water they bend and vice versa.
  • Is currently angry with Strong Bad over an incident involving gelatin mix and her water-bending water. Strong Bad denies any involvement in that.
  • Goes with Aang, Korra, and Asami on double dates at times in the House of Love.
  • Despite the two being very contradictory otherwise, gets along well with Alexastrasza due to their similar personalities towards those they love.
  • Some wonder if she's in a relationship with Zuko. Katara denies it, having long since married Aang and raising three children together. But some people just can't be convinced. She sympathizes with Naruto seeing he too had to go through the same thing.
  • Was impressed by Elsa's ability to manipulate snow and ice, and has wondered if she's actually a Waterbender. The latter has yet to actually try controlling plain water, but has expressed interest in trying.
  • Is assisting Aang for the Pantheonic Rebellion.
  • After discovering the periodic table and what water is composed of, has started trying to bend some acids, and met with limited success.
  • Met Mr. Freeze via her friend Zuko's previous position in the House of Ambiguity. She now goes around to say hi every once in a while, and see how his wife is doing.
  • Partnered with Wailord recently; the latter often gives her rides out to sea, so she can practice her waterbending without anyone around. When she noticed Sokka about to comment, she shut him up with a glare.
    Katara: Don't even, Sokka.
  • Along with Aang, was disgusted when Zaheer ascended after learning of what he tried to do to Korra, the Air Nation, and her children. This culminated in her threatening to kill him with his own poison should he ever go after any of them, as well as Aang, Zuko, Sokka, or Toph, again.
    • Despite being on the opposite end of the order/chaos spectrum, Kuvira isn't seen in a much better light due to the tyrannical extremes she took in her attempts to solve the problems Zaheer caused, even harvesting and weaponizing Spirit Vines in order to crush Republic City and drive it under heel. While the Great Uniter claims to be atoning for her sins here, Katara has threatened to end her if she takes one step backwards.
  • Sometimes practices with both Korra and Aang, due to all three being able to bend far more effectively in their child forms, especially due to retaining all of their skills as adults.
  • Has been watching Korra carefully after the discovery that she was being threatened by the GUAC, due to their plans to extract Vaatu.
  • Once interrupted a fight between Aang and Edward Elric, showing up right as Aang entered the Avatar State and calming him down. Ed's brother Alphonse was on the scene as well, chastising both of them for their stupid hotheadedness. After everyone calmed down and Aang and Ed apologized, the four spent time together and discovered they were very similar in their philosophy and approach to the sanctity of life. Thus began the friendly ties between Amestris and the World of Avatar, which have only grown exponentially over time in the Pantheon.
    • However, said fight could have gone very differently, as they received a vivid demonstration of courtesy of a simulation using adapted footage of the encounter courtesy of Wizard and Boomstick. This version of events was doctored to end with Aang destroying Edward via full-course elemental attack. Aang contended that that wasn't even the way he would've tried to end it, instead intending to block Ed's "clappy magic" via energybending only to undo the block later, but still was as horrified as everyone else at the sight nonetheless. Katara plans on freezing Boomstick in a block of ice for this (at least Wiz had enough respect to acknowledge that Aang would hardly kill anyone like that, whereas Boomstick destroyed the moment by following up with bad puns).
  • Has made an effort to keep an eye on Aang, Zuko, and Korra after Azula reascended, especially if she is aware she's around.

  • Opposes: Rock, Ice (Zapdos), Lightning (Articuno and Moltres) and Fire (Articuno) deities
  • The legendary birds of Kanto embody Ice Lightning and Fire and as such, usually spend their time secluded from many other deities but freely interact with other deities who share their abilities. Despite wanting to isolate themselves from other deities, Articuno's, Zapdos' and Moltres' temple leads to an island in the middle of nowhere that contains a snowy mountain, a grassy field and a volcano.
  • Applies to the lot
    • The three aren't the only trio in their series with a Fire, Ice, Lightning dynamic, but they are the most powerful and famous. Unlike some legendaries they aren't a case of Single Specimen Species and since their squabbles don't cause environmental catastrophe they aren't the stronger Shamouti Island birds. Lugia still bosses them around as it feels it needs to make sure they behave, but Ho-oh treats them less condescendely and they like it more. The legendary trio are certainly more well-behaved than their Galarian cousins, who are a Psychic, Fighting and Dark/Flying trio and their power has gone to their heads.
    • There are several deities who the legendary birds refuse to interact with due to them using the element they represent for evil. For example, Zapdos refuses to interact with Eneru, Electro, Azula, and Emperor Palpatine and Moltres refuses to go near Ragnaros the Firelord and the Firebird. The legendary birds are also hesitant to go near deities who can control elements that the legendary birds are weak to, and they hate poachers like Hunter J who want them captive. Giovanni and Team Rocket count as their enemies Ever since that one time when they got fused together.
    • Ash was happy to see the legendary trio again, and as usual they get along with the Pokémon-loving Kid Hero. Charizard still boasts about the time Ash's beat Articuno, and how two of Ash's Kalos Pokémon were worthy opponents for the other two birds. Articuno snidely replied that Stealth Rocks will put the fire lizard out of commission, and Moltres responded in Pokémon Speak "same to you and me" before patting Charizard on the back. The bird trio have come to love challenging the Tao Trio, specifically the ones sharing the same type as them, as they soon noticed the three follow the same Fire, Ice, Lightning trinity.
    • They fear Chuggaaconroy since it was because of their captures that his legacy of capturing the other legendaries in normal Pokéballs began. His first attempts had him capture Articuno with only 2 Ultra Balls, Zapdos after going through 30 Ultra Balls then tossing a single Pokéball at it out of annoyance (he could be heard screaming, "YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!" when that happened) and Moltres came about after Chugga gave a a sick burn on himself that Trollkaiger had an absolute laugh at. The second time was even more hectic, let's put it that way.
    • As Aang is the master of elements, the Legendary Birds feel they can safely hang out with him and request help in case the elements get out of whack. Given what happened to the Shamouti Island legendary birds the group fear they may need back-up in case Dr Eggman considers them a more reliable ancient power to control, especially as he's mostly overcome the whole "Evil Is Not a Toy" trope. Within their own 'verse, the birds get along more with Pokémon of the same type.
  • Applies to Articuno
    • The Freeze Pokémon has the rare Ice/Flying type combination, as it appears to be based of the mythical roc (giant Arctic bird). It is rather empathetic, appearing to doomed people on icy mountains...all of which makes the creature a godsend for the House of Locations and Settings. Due to its generally friendly attitude, Articuno doesn't have many enemies outside its elemental weaknesses. The legendary has shown a market dislike for Pet Shop due to being a psychotic bird who uses their ice-based Stand to cause trouble. Because of how it helps people in terribly icy weather, House Stark can count on its aid. Sadly this has also caught the Night's King's attention and he wants to add the legendary to his zombie army.
    • Articuno feels a strange kinship with Akechi Mitsuhide as they were good friends with each other in an alternate reality where Pokémon battles took a very different turn. However it prefers Jack Frost as a partner, because of his status as the spirit of winter. They met whole Jack was trekking the mountain for personal solace. Thanks to Articuno's ability boosting evasion in a hailstorm, siding with Jack proves combatively useful as well.
    • Besides Jack, Articuno tends to be friendly in general with those who use ice powers in a positive manner. Queen Elsa is usually found in frigid environments and has from time to time been offered a ride on the legendary's back. They first flew to where Gray Fullbuster was training his body and ice powers, and the legendary decided to join in for fun. Articuno also enjoys hanging out with Cirno due to her being an ice fairy. It may sympathize with her Boisterous Weakling status due to having the worst defensive typing of the three birdsnote .
  • Applies to Zapdos
    • The Electric Pokémon is said to appear from clouds while dropping enormous lightning bolts. It can freely control thunder and cause savage thunderstorms by flapping its glittering wings. Basically it's an avian version of Zeus or Thor, minus the former's notorious libido. Furthering the connection to the latter is its French name, Electhor. The former likes to flex by competing with and wielding the legendary's thunderbolts, while Thor compensates its lacking physically Electric movepool.
    • The Mob cheered to find the trio in the Pantheon, but were especially happy with Zapdos. Many gods were amazed at how the Mob somehow managed to keep the Master Ball and successfully capture Zapdos with it. Getting it out of the PC, on the other hand... They did some good work in protecting the Electric-type legendary from Gigabolt Man-O-War who tried to suck the Pokémon dry for his fix...and supporting the Next Gen Reploid cause. Bender chooses to just leave Zapdos alone, because of a bad trip he had from electricity.
    • It has developed a strong bond with Mikoto Misaka and can frequently be seen sparring with her as her control over electricity is more than a match for Zapdos' lightning. In addition of the reasons it dislikes Enel is that the legendary was trying to look for a fellow Thunderbird, only to be tricked by the appearance of one of his attacks, the 30,000,000 Volt Hino.
  • Applies to Moltres
    • The Fire Pokémon is a phoenix who's flap of its wings creates a dazzling flash of flames. It is said that its appearance indicates the coming of spring. Within the pantheon, the legendary can be seen flexing its pyrokinesis with Alexstrasza and Natsu Dragneel. If injured, it is said to dip its body in the molten magma of a volcano to burn and heal itself. As such it will crash into SCP-4338's domain and ask for a favor when hurt. The SCP Foundation tolerates this, but only because they confirmed beforehand that Moltres' presence wouldn't affect SCP-4338's current standing. It was bemused to hear there was another firebird in the pantheon, Litra, and it likes showing off to it.
    • While mastering her craft in the Hall of Fire and Heat, Moltres visited and the two decided to test each other out. Impressed by skills with a sword, the legendary decided to join up with the Hot-Eyed Hunter. Birds aren't exactly known for their swordsmanship, so she compliments its power. Ozai had wanted to make Moltres his partner instead, as he thinks the fire bird is a perfect symbol of the Fire Kingdom's power. Given its opposition to Azula Moltres wanted nothing to do with someone as utterly villainous as Ozai. That said, at least he wasn't SCP-457 who wanted to assimilate the legendary to its will by hijacking its flames.
    • As it flaps its flaming wings, even the night sky will turn red. It may not be as effective as Volcarona, but Moltres could theoretically serve as a second sun. Naturally the Grand Duke of Owls regards it as an unacceptable bringer of light, though this only includes the ascended Moltres; he's deeply amused by Galarian Moltres. Chanticleer reached out to the legendary to help out against the Grand Duke of Owls.

Demigods

    Zia Rashid 
Zia Rashid, Goddess of Fire/Water Juxtaposition (Zia, Zebras, Doll, The Eye of Ra, Scribe of the First Nome, Mistress of the Elements)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zia10.jpg
  • Demigoddess in general (Quasideity when hosting Nephthys; Intermediate, borderline Greater Goddess when hosting Ra)
  • Symbol: Her scarab necklace.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Fire/Water Juxtaposition, Action Girl, Ambiguously Brown, Playing with Fire, Badass Boast, Defrosting Ice Queen, Doomed Hometown, Parental Abandonment, Conveniently an Orphan, Talking in Your Dreams, The Power of the Sun, Resurrective Immortality
  • Domains: Fire, Magic, The Sun, Egypt, Godlings
  • Allies: Ra, Osiris/Julius Kane, Anubis/Walt Stone, Bast, Geb, Yami Yugi, Yugi Muto, Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, Zuko, Rashīdo
  • Forbidden Friendship: Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase

  • Enemies: Apophis, En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse, Tom Riddle/Voldemort
  • Distrusts: Azir
  • Annoyed By: Ron Weasley
  • Respects: The Egyptian Gods, Ramses, Moses
  • Opposes: All Demons
  • The ascension of Zia Rashid was originally met with confusion since there are already gods for many major traits of hers; namely gods of the Sun (Amaterasu and Django), Fire (Recca Hanabishi), Functional Magic (Harry Potter) and many others. Ra then stepped forth in the form of a old, but muscular man and told them all how Zia was the host of Nephthys and later became his own host. Thus with it now known that Zia was the host of what could be considered a water (river) goddess and later a fire (sun) god, she became the goddess of Fire/Water Juxtaposition in the Pantheon.
    • Zia started hosting the goddess Nephthys after Julius Kane released the five children of Nut from the British Museum. The four gods Horus, Isis, Osiris and Set then quickly went to take the closest individuals with the blood of the Pharaohsnote , which left the fifth, Nephthys, to seek out the closest magician, Zia. Unfortunately Zia being a fire elementalist made her a poor host for Nephthys, and though the goddess did try to protect her from Apophis, she could have ended up killing Zia herself. Her death was prevented by Iskandar who put her in suspended animation in a sarcophagus made of water. When she was freed by Carter Kane and Bes she was quickly taken to the Nile river where she released Nephthys, who apologized for taking her as a host before she took the Nile as her new body.
      • Shortly after releasing Nephthys, Zia met a revived, yet senile and demented, Ra who gave her a golden scarab that contained part of his soul, Khepri, which Zia turned into a necklace. By keeping the golden scarab with her she allowed Khepri to protect her, though the real reason why Ra gave her the amulet was to prepare her to become his host. Before the final battle against Apophis both Zia and Ra held the scarab amulet, which created a warm glow that enveloped them both, before Ra turned to dust only to be reborn with Zia as his host. Zia/Ra then went with the other gods to meet Apophis in battle.
  • Ironically she never defeated Apophis, that was the Kane siblings. She was devoured by Apophis, and Ra along with her, though thankfully they were able to break out of him and even release the souls he devoured once the Kanes execrated him.
  • Zia stopped hosting Ra after the defeat of Apophis, and thanks to the nature of the Pantheon Ra doesn't need her as a host. That said, Ra still cares for her greatly and their relationship is comparable to that of a grandfather and granddaughter.
  • Is the only survivor of a Egyptian village named Al-Hamrah Makan, which was destroyed when her father accidentally released a monster from a red statue. She took awhile to get over this, not wanting to get close to people, until Carter Kane came along.
  • According to Carter, Zia resembles Nefertiti. Safe to assume he likes this about her, given he's now her boyfriend.
  • Zia was actually hardly therenote  for the events that took place during The Red Pyramid; instead the person who was in it was a clay construct called a shabti, specifically made to act in her place. The shabti did manage to pass at least some of its memories on to the real Zia, though.
  • Doesn't like the gods Set, Sobek and Neith for all three have attempted to kill several of her friends. It also doesn't help that Set tried to destroy all of North America by turning it into a desert.
  • Doesn't trust Azir for his codename (Seth) is a evil name. This is of course likely due to the connection with the name Set.
    • Unfortunately her reasons are justified with proof in the name of Setne.
  • Though she'd never met Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase until she joined the Pantheon, she did know of them thanks to the Kane siblings. And, though she likes them and is willing to help them at times, she is unwilling to get to close to them due to the risk of possibly creating some hybrid magic, which has proven to be incredibly dangerous thanks to Setne.
  • Like most magicians in the House of Life she holds Ramses in high regard for being one of the great pharaohs of Egypt's history. Of course, like most people from in the modern age, she's not a big fan of the whole slave thing.
    • Ironically she also has a lot of respect for Moses, since he is to date the only foreign magician to have ever defeated the House of Life.
  • Absolutely hates En Sabah Nur for being known as "The Bringer of Chaos" which goes against Ma'at. It also doesn't help that he assumed Set's identity.
  • Gets along well with Yami Yugi, though she doesn't particularly like how he used to deal out punishment, namely the "Shadow Games". It helps that he is a Pharaoh. She also gets along with Yugi Muto.
  • Being a scribe of the First Nome naturally attracted the attention of Hermione Granger who came to her to learn more about Egyptian magic. Through Hermione Zia also learned more about the rest of the golden trio. Though she likes Harry she finds Ron Weasley incredibly annoying with his terrible table manners and lack of respect for magic.
  • Though she acknowledges that there are some good demons in the Pantheon, she opposes all demons due to being beings of Chaos.
  • Sometimes practices her fire magic with Zuko.
  • Encountered another Rashid in the House of Nature, this one a street fighter known for his spinning tornado attacks. He's a friendly enough guy that it reminds her of Carter, though being a grown man, he's much more laid back and confident and far less awkward than Carter was initially. He's good at making connections, but unlike Carter he's not much of a leader. Though, he's started treating her like something of a kid sister. She's not sure how to take that. Also, after hearing it once or twice, to set him apart from herself she pronounces his name by the Japanese Rashīdo.
