  • He separated houses from the house of Abusive Parents after finding his own calling and concentrating more on tracking Carl Clover. He really couldn't stand being slighted by him in the past...
  • Relius has been secretly on a project for building up some sort of 'Evil Family', that once created, will wreak havoc into the Pantheon.
    • That project turned out to be the arrival of Huckebein Family. Despite that, Relius still abuses them on regular basis. No child is safe from Relius, irredeemably evil or not.
  • Is also rumored that he plans to overthrow Darth Vader from his throne, as Relius was severely disappointed that Vader did not went on his plan to kill off Luke Skywalker... Relius would kill him if he's put on Vader's shoes. He still likes the Empire's March song, though.
  • He had no high opinion on his replacement, Ghetsis. No, not because of his horrific torture of N (Relius would approve). But because Ghetsis sought PERFECTION, and Relius believed that only he can attain it.
    • Likewise, fellow Mad Scientist Mayuri Kurotsuchi despises him BECAUSE he seeks perfection, which reminds him of Szayelapporo Granz. Miki Aono also despise him as he's staining the efforts to be positive and perfect in the same time with his over the top depravity. It's still a wonder why Relius suddenly didn't declare Miki to be his potential experiment subject, perhaps he just finds fighting the armada of Pretty Cure troublesome for him.
      • Is also good friends with Albert Wesker, another fellow Mad Scientist who seeks perfection and had abandoned his own son.
  • His theme, created after deification, has been described as more of a turn-on than Terumi's theme. May or not be in the process of becoming a separate deity altogether.
  • As he has competed with Terumi in the depravity department in his respective franchise, Relius is one of the vilest deities in the Pantheon, and he is definitely the most vile parent ever. Those such as Frank Castle, Kenshiro, Ryuko Matoi and William Blazkowicz are all itching to grind him into hamburger for the things he has done.
  • Treads carefully when around the house of Life and Death, as Johann Faust VIII has a kill-on-sight policy regarding Relius.
  • He once again managed to make his move to reshape the Pantheon, once again coaxing Litchi into his side and even yanked his son Carl out of Alice Margatroid's house, facing against Bang Shishigami, and not just him, also Jin Kazama and anti-parental abuse group and also Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, Jade Curtiss, Miki Aono, Johann Faust and even Kurotsuchi Mayuri. This brawl, however, turned against him when he was backstabbed by Revolver Ocelot and Albert Wesker, depowering him greatly, and even Carl and Litchi didn't even lift a finger to help him note . With his movement crumbling to pieces, Relius fell into a massive Villainous BSoD and after beaten to near death by Valkenhayn, he's currently was put under the mercy of both Carl and Litchi, until he 'fulfills' something.
  • The fact that he shares the same Japanese voice as Archer is what disturbs the Heroic Spirit so much.
  • He and Terumi were the ones to ascend Arakune as a way to try and get Ms.Litchi under thier thumb. Relius however saw some more potential in Arakune and managed to upgrade him to Intermediate-god levels and sent Arakune to do his bidding. However as of recent, most people have had a harder time finding Arakune around the pantheon. Most of the gods went to him questioning him on the whereabouts of Arakune. He simply said however that he has not seen Arakune in a while, especially after he was betrayed by Ocelot and Wesker and that he lost contact. Some people still suspect otherwise however.
  • Jedah Dohma has some interest in him, not only for sounding a kind but his plans for creating new wold would help Jedah's vision of such. He considers keeping Relius alive until he either gets his act together or until he is beyond saving.
  • The pantheon has just found out that he and Valkenhayn R. Hellsing used to work together in their younger years. Valkenhayn has refused to give any comments at the moment.
  • To everyone's surprise, Relius managed to break out from his containment and once again roamed free in the Pantheon, after learning from his mistakes before, it's less likely that he'll repeat his failures, though he saw no point in retrieving both Litchi and Arakune again. However, some say he has 'talked' with Carl and caused a jarring change in him. With this, the good people in the Pantheon once again resumed the 'manhunt' against him while the evil people that still trusted him in their evil ways welcomed him back, like usual. He does learn to not hang around with Wesker again.

Lesser Gods

    Bryan Mills 
Bryan Mills, God of Papa Wolves

Chrom, Divine Patriarch (Newly Exalted, Blue, Prince of Ylisse, Chromvoy)

    Professor Utonium 
Professor Utonium, God of Fatherly Scientists (Professor, Drake Utonium, Powerprof)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A flask of Chemical X
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Those Eyebrows, Truly Single Father, Literal Fatherly Scientist, Great Parents(Though He Can Go A Bit Overboard), Standard '50s Father, Reasonable Leaders, Dislikes Cats, Team Dad, Nice Guy That You Don't Mess With, Scientist In Many Fields
  • Domains: Fathers, Science, Chemicals, Superheroes
  • Allies: The Powerpuff Girls (his daughters), Nibbler, Mary Poppins, Carl and Ada Clover, Son Chichi, Yui, Astro Boy, Samurai Jack, Kotetsu T.Kaburagi, Krim Steinbelt
  • Friendly Rivalry with: Dr Thomas Light, Dexter
  • Good Counterpart to: Relius Clover
  • Opposes: All ascended cat and spider gods, the House of Crime
  • Opposed by: Homer Simpson
  • Professor Utonium is a brilliant scientist in the once crime-ridden city of Townsville. Hoping to bring some happiness and comfort into his life, he planned to create the perfect little girls using sugar, spice and everything else. An accidental dose of Chemical X resulted in the girls coming alive with superpowers, becoming the Powerpuff Girls. Though artificial creations, the Professor treats them like his biological daughters and loves them dearly. He and the Powerpuff Girls were glad to meet each other in the pantheon.
  • Back in the day, Mojo Jojo used to be a troublesome assistant chimp called Jojo. The two have a rather complicated relationship, and was the one who broke his vial of Chemical X which resulted in both the girls having powers and Mojo Jojo's super-intelligence. Because of this he's also the girls' "father", but it's only brought up to aggravate him.
  • His first name is unknown, so people usually refer to him by the Professor. According to one source his first name is Drake.
  • He is essentially the Good Counterpart to Relius Clover. The two are expert scientists and fathers, however while the Professor treats his creations as family, Relius sees his own family as tools for experimentation. He's expressed a disgust towards the truly single parent Father for his treatment of the Homunculi, and considers the fact they're aspects of himself a sign of immense self-loathing. In general, he isn't a fan of cruel parents or evil scientists. Being in the same house, he's put his focus on Dr Wily. The most positive thing he can say about the man is that he's got some odd fondness for his creations Bass and Zero, but it doesn't justify his actions or the psychopathic Omega.
  • There isn't a Mrs Utonium, something of which he often feels lonely about. He once dated Sedusa, who used him to stop the Powerpuff Girls' heroism. This experience has led him to go against gold diggers and horrible girlfriends like Lady Tremaine and Raynare.
  • The Professor is a very passionate and loving father, and is determined to raise his daughters the best he can. However, he can get rather overprotective of them, such as setting up elaborate situations to teach them morals. And the less said about his Dynamo mech, the better. Often spends time conversing with Son Chichi. Like Utonium, she can get a tad obsessive about protecting her incredibly powerful children and trying to raise them. Both are deeply respected by and deeply care for their kids, though. Has been trying to protect artificial kids out of his fatherly instincts, such as Yui and Astro Boy. He does sometimes cause trouble for Astro Boy however, though this is just because he's worried he might try to date one of his girls.
  • Looks an awful lot like Samurai Jack. He believes that the former is an ancestor of his, and has offered his assistance with the girls to stop Aku. Is a big fan of silent movies, pancakes and golf. He tries to avoid not getting too obsessed over golf anymore, as it led the Powerpuff Girls to steal a perfect set of clubs to help out. He's tried to be a superhero or fighter in his own right, but often needs his kids to save him.
  • Is a brilliant inventor, having developed technology such as time travel, body switching machines and containment fields. However, his greatest inventions were accidental or the result of some mistake, which has given him some angst. The girls have managed to make him feel better by pointing out numerous great inventions like penicillin were accidental in origin. He's making more progress working with fellow kind-hearted scientists and inventors. He has a Friendly Rivalry with both Dr Light and Dexter. With Dr Light, they're very similar in attitudes to their creations and kind fathers, but still wish to prove to one another who's the best. With Dexter, he's the other famous Cartoon Network scientist.
  • His experiences with Dick Hardly lead him to dislike people like Felix, and has warned Gharnef to back off after trying to steal his Chemical X. These experiences also lead him to try and protect Kotetsu T Kaburagi so he won't be exploited. Naturally, he's no fan of unscrupled scientists and inventors like Ryoma Sengoku.
  • Does not like cats. He was mind-controlled by one, and as such cannot trust them or let any near him. It's this distaste that broke his relationship to Ms Keane. At the very least, it led to him getting along with Nibbler who agrees most cats are shifty, devious creatures. He's terrified of spiders in any form, which leads him to steer clear of the House of Insects(and insists that since they're arachnids, they shouldn't be in that house). He's not sure whom to be more frightened of; Arachne, mother of spiders or Ungoliant, the abominable arachnid. The Powerpuff Girls are doing their best to hide the fact that the Overdeity Chakravartin has his Golden Spider Form.
  • In spite of his arachnophobia, even he thinks Billy's fear of spiders and treatment of his friendly spider son goes too far. Generally he doesn't like the boy due to his extreme stupidity. He's also accepting of Peter Parker due to being merely spider-themed rather than an actual spider.
  • Given he had the chemical knowledge to create the perfect little girls, one would imagine that he is a decent cook. And they're be right...unless it's about chili, which he cannot cook for his life. During the pantheon's chili cook off, Homer Simpson was on the scene to judge the participants. When he tried the Professors', Homer had to drink way more beer than before and passed out drunk, but not before declaring it "the worst chili of all time". He's sworn to get back at the Professor for the awful taste. He did manage to make a better chili next time with Chemical X, however the resultant methane it gained a life of its own and became homicidal. It took the Kid to save the day from an exceedingly ignoble end.
  • Tries to insist to the Powerpuff Girls he likes liver and onions, so as to get them to eat it. In truth he hates the stuff and wants to come off as more adult.
  • You can find Professor Utonium working in the House of Science.


    Henry VIII 
Henry the Eighth, Godly Head of the Heir Club for Men (Henry Tudor, Henry the Ate, Protector of the Faith)
An official portrait of the King
Henry as portrayed in The Tudors
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The House of Tudor symbol, combining a white and red rose
  • Theme Song: Many, but he's fond of the one from Tudors
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, though considers himself Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Historical-Domain Character, The King's Issue, Serial Spouse, Love Ruins the Realm, Bloody Marriages, Well Done Daughter Guy, Spare to the Throne, Big Kings With Big Appetites, Formerly Fit, From Romantic and Passionate To Dour and Ruthless, Glory Seeker, Fiery Redhead, "Do as I say, not as I do"
  • Domains: Kingship, England, The Church, Marriages and Divorces, Lust and Passion, Food
  • Special relationship with: Queen Elizabeth the First of England (his daughter)
  • Allies: Robert Baratheon, Asia Argento, King Dedede, King Arthur
  • Vitriolic Best Buds with: William Shakespeare, Pacman
  • On good terms with: The House of Food
  • Enemies: Cersei Lannister, Smaug, Edmund E Blackadder, Nurgle, Typhus, Melisandre, Diaochan, The Queen of Hearts, Irene Adler, James Moriarty
  • Envies: Anyone with happy marriages or many male children
  • Opposes: Ebeneezer Scrooge, The Matsuno Sextuplets
  • Opposed by: Alexander Anderson
  • Additional relationship with: Amy Pond (ex-wifenote ), The Doctor (former son-in-law)
  • Henry is the younger son of his namesake Henry the Seventh, whom won the War of the Roses. Though second in place to his brother Arthur, the death of said brother would propel him into history as King Henry the Eighth. Unlike his miser father he was frugal, warm, romantic and sporty. However an infatuation with his mistress compounded by "the king's issue" of needing a prince would turn English politics and religion upside down, transforming him into one of the most notorious and dramatic kings the British Isles ever had.
  • Has always been vexed to produce an heir. Despite conceiving eleven children through three wives and a mistress, only four ever lived to grow up; two daughters, one an illegitimate son and one legitimate son. It is no exaggeration to say he reshaped English history to get the son he wanted, and to say the least he was infuriated upon learning Edward would die as at fifteen after his death. Learning about the success of his daughter Elizabeth has led him conflicted to say the least, commenting "it seems God intends to humble me, by making my greatest heir the daughter of that treacherous Anne."
    • His illegitimate son Henry Fitzroy may be a vampire, but he considers this nonsense.
  • He dislikes the Matsuno Sextuplets, as their parents managed to produce six sons.
  • Remarkably similar to Robert Baratheon; they both were strong and handsome yet became fat, have unhappy marriages/relationships, love to eat and have a cynic disposition. The two are good friends, and both like to complain about Cersei Lannister. The Tudor king is disdainful towards her due as her incestuous adultery reminds him of Anne Boleyn, whom he still insists was a cheating witch. He hates Melisandre even more due to being a witch and a pyromaniac fundamentalist, combining the worst perceived aspects of Boleyn and his daughter Mary.
    • He does share antagonism for Irene Adler with Cersei though, as he assumes she's Anne Boleyn. Also thinks James Moriarty is further proof of her scheming nature.
  • Often seen hanging out in the Houses of Leadership and Royalty, as one might expect. Being a fat, hungry king he's gotten along rather well with King Dedede. Learning that King Arthur was in the pantheon pleased him greatly, and he immediately went up to him to essentially fanboy over Arthur. Still hasn't gotten over how the other Arthur is a woman, though.
  • He's (in)famous for divorcing England from the Catholic Church and setting up his own Church of England, all to definitively annul his marriage with Catherine of Aragon and no longer be subject to the Holy See. Alexander Anderson is still not over it and remains pissed at his actions. He would tear down monasteries and strip them for resources, filling his coffers despite disliking his father's own miserly behavior. Made himself more unpopular by hiring the Sherrif of Nottingham for this task.
  • Has tried to loot the many valuables belonging to Smaug in order to fund his religious endeavors, but this hasn't gone anywhere as Smaug keeps killing his men
  • He has always had a big appetite, setting up lavish feasts-feasts he often helps plan out for the House of Food, of which they are greatful. He's even got into some friendly eating contests with Pac-Man. However he was able to balance it out with physical activity. Eventually numerous injuries and comfort eating, combined with horrible leg ulcers would cause him to let himself go. At his death, he was so fat he needed help to be moved around. To fit these maladies, he has gone to the House of Health and Diseases, paying Asia Argento a pretty penny to help with him. Naturally he's worried about Typhus and Nurgle.
  • He's rather friendly towards Rhaegar Targaryen, as they both ended up fundamentally changing the kingdom due to their love for another woman; Lyanna Stark and Anne Boleyn respectively. Rhaegar would rather not be associated with Henry, and is quick to point out that they're not that alike; he kept on loving Lyanna, while Henry would later grow tired and execute Anne.
  • At one point he accidentally married Amy Pond of all people, though this was quickly rectified and historical records ignore this. So do they forget that the Doctor in his tenth incarnation married his daughter. He's not sure what to think about either of them, but is at least glad that the Doctor is fond of the nation he rules.
  • Heard of his daughter's fondness for William Shakespeare, and requested a visit to the Globe Theater of his temple. Henry ended up enjoying his works, and is a recurring visitor. William is fine with this, but doesn't like to hang out with him that much.
  • Rather dissatisfied with Marge Simpson's retelling of his life, and comparison towards Homer. He executed two of his six wives, but he's not as much of a bluebeard as she states.
  • Once confused Superman with his old friend Charles Brandon, simply because they looked alike.

    Red Forman 
Reginald Albert "Red" Forman, God of Veteran Fathers
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His blue Corvette
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Threatening to ram his foot into others' rectums, fighting in two wars and retiring after three jobs to raise two kids, real men, Deadpan Snarker, Grumpy Old Man, The Comically Serious, nice moments among stern behavior, rarely being called "Reginald"
  • Domains: Fatherhood, Patriotism, Annoyance
  • High Priest: Cotton Hill
  • Allies: Kitty Forman (his wife), Dr. Cox
  • Enemies: Any god that annoys him
  • Complicated relationship: John Rambo
  • Fears: RoboCop
  • Worthy Opponent: The Janitor
  • Red Forman ascended after he retired from being a mere mortal. He now resides in his and Kitty's temple, watching the Packers from in his armchair, and tending to his new, divine Corvette.
  • Some people thought that Red would get along famously with Cranky Kong and to a lesser extent, Eustace Bagge. However, Red's reactions upon meeting them were respectively, "Why the hell is that monkey talking?" and calling Eustace a "dumbass farmer that can't grow anything". They did not take kindly to that, and the three old men have a bitter indifference to each other.
    • Hank Hill isn't entirely fond of Red either. They get along well enough, but the fact that his own father, Cotton, is Red's high priest doesn't sit well with Hank.
  • Red does get along with Dr. Cox due to their similar personalities and outlooks on life. Most gods made mental notes to leave the two of them alone, if they were together and in a bad mood.
    • Red also accompanies Dr. Cox when they go and drink with the Janitor. While Red and the Janitor get along, and he doesn't mind the Janitor's behavior towards Dr. Dorian, Red thinks the Janitor should "get up off [his] ass and get back to work" more often. Red was kidnapped and placed inside a water tower for one day, by the Janitor. After the former let him out, Red invited him over for a spaghetti dinner, the spaghetti contained gutter cleanings and dead moths. When the Janitor found out, it was agreed that they had found Worthy Opponents.
  • While this was only in a daydream, it has been shown that Red can be very fun to watch whenever he's intoxicated.
  • Is terrified of RoboCop, who has a grudge for some reason and nearly beat Red up the first time he saw him if not for the intervention of other deities.
  • Rambo mistook him for Robert Briggs and decided to talk to him. Red respects a fellow veteran and likes how Rambo is soft-spoken and wants peace, so they can be seen together at times, when Red's abrasive nature doesn't drive the other away.
