    Skuld 
Skuld, Goddess of Magical Use in Science (Norn of the Future)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skuldfull54710.jpg
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: Her facial markings
  • Alignment: Neutral Good with Chaotic fits.
  • Portfolio: Using Magic In Her Engineering, Being a Master Engineer Because of That, Physical Goddess, Skuld Bomb, Sweet Tooth, Clingy Jealous Girl Regarding Her Sister, Bad Liar, Little Miss Badass
  • Domains: Technology, Magic, Goddesses
  • Allies: Belldandy, Kokonoe A. Mercury, Phineas Flynn, Mahiro Yasaka, Special Lovers Squad, Pit, Tyr
  • Enemies: Anyone who would threaten Belldandy. Or tries to hit on her.
  • Afraid of: House of Ghosts
  • Skuld is an odd case in the Pantheon. You see, she has been here for a long time... and not really. As a goddess of Undiscovered Country, she was based on some sort of fan fic what didn't even get finished. She stayed as she was until one day, Belldandy found out about this and wanted The Court of Gods to fix this. After they looked into things, they collectively face palmed and made her go through "instant-fire Purgatory" to renew her position.
    • Due of this embarrassing past, she doesn't like to talk about gods from Warhammer 40k or Neon Genesis Evangelion universes. In fact, talking about Lars (a daemon who she seemingly had a relation with and who she fertilized) is sure-fire way to piss her off.
  • She has a thing called Direct Manipulation Type Magic that allows her to use magic when dealing with machinery. Note, this trait does not make her good allies with the Incubators.
  • You really shouldn't get any bright ideas regarding her sister, Belldandy when she's around, unless you want to get into the receiving end of her Skuld Bombs. This makes her sort of allies with the Special Lovers Squad.
    • Both Nyarko and Mahiro has stated that she sounds like Mahiro's mother if she was younger. Pit also states that she sounds sort of like lady Palutena. In fact, many gods who say she sounds like someone tend to follow-up with "if she was younger".
  • Avoids the House of Ghosts due of her fear of ghosts.
  • Can be used as a Persona by Tatsuya Suou and Maya Amano, at which point her bombs turn into Nuclear-type.
  • No relation with Shulk.

Intermediate Gods

    Bondrewd 
SFX: Rumble of scientific triumph

Bondrewd, God of Human Resources and Remembering Ones Victims (Lord of Dawn, Bondrewd the Novel, Bonedaddy, Bonerdude, BEST DAD)

    Cave Johnson 
Cave Johnson, God of the Pursuit of Pointless Knowledge
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Portal_Cave_Johnson_2626.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His portrait, the Aperture Science logo, or a trophy for Potato Sciences. Any will do!
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolios: Aperture Science-level Science, Inventional Wisdom, Always Second Best, Foolish Use of Company Assets, Bungling Inventor, Badass Boasts, Bad Bosses, For Science!, Absolute, Demented Genius, Obliviously Evil, Incredible Support of Loved Ones, Posthumous Character.
  • Domain: Technology, Research, Development, Testing, Pre-recorded Messages
  • Followers: Every scientist who has ever used the Cave Johnson approach to SCIENCE!
  • Allies: GLaDOS, Wheatley, every single Aperture Science product ever.
  • Enemies: Wallace Breen and all of Black Mesa.
  • Opposed by: Balthier
  • It's not really known whether he's dead or alive. However, his pre-recorded messages suddenly started being broadcast across the House, and GLaDOS and a very large contingent of mad scientists have decided they like the idea of listening to Cave. The fact no pre-recorded message seems to have been heard twice supports the idea that at the very least, Cave is present in some form in the House.
  • Cave's life is the holy grail for aspiring mad scientists, who hope to achieve at least a fraction of his genius. Money and sanity optional.
  • Cave was one of the few who sponsored the ascension of Polybius, although he refuses to say why.
  • As the former Corporate Leader of Black Mesa, Cave despises every single bit of Wallace Breen so much. Breen however doesn't think much of him, since Johnson isn't spotted in the Pantheon (despite having a seat). Then again, since Black Mesa and Aperture Science were competitors ever since, it kinda makes sense why such a threat was needed.
  • Cave has been noted to sound like J.J. Jameson, though he disagrees on his anti-Spider-Man stance, hoping to replicate the results someday. Though J.J has expressed interest in writing about Aperture's creations since it's plenty of news material to work with, and even how said replication experiments could mean that people won't need the real Spider-Man anymore.

    Edward Elric 
Edward "Ed" Elric, God of Alchemical Magic (Fullmetal Alchemist, Edo, Pipsqueak [call him the latter at your peril])
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/edward_elric.png
  • Intermediate God (Greater God when fighting in peak condition)
  • Theme: "Uso"
  • Symbol: His coat and his mechanical limbs; alternatively, the flamel on the back of his coat.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Child Alchemist Soldiers with really horrid pasts, Teen Genius, Being Short and Irritable (and incredibly sensitive about it), Not Believing in Gods despite having met one and now being one himself
  • Domain: Alchemy, Magic, Science, Strategy, Knowledge
  • Followers: the Einzbern family. Kazuki Mutou, every single Atelier protagonist, the boy from Podunk, USA
  • Teachers: Izumi Curtis
  • Allies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Mayuri Kurosutchi, Dovahkiin, Tatsumaki, Kiritsugu Emiya (by proxy of the Einzbern family being his followers), Alucard
  • Distaff Counterpart: Rosette Christopher
  • Enemies: Shou Tucker, Dante of the Deep Forest, Lust the Lascivious, Pride the Arrogant, Envy the Jealous, Father Homunculus, Gluttony the Voracious, Führer King Bradley, Albert Wesker, Relius Clover, Ghetsis Harmonia, Yuuki Terumi, Ragyo Kiryuin, Master Xehanort, Basco ta Jolokia, Nyarlathotep, Mard Geer, Zeref, The Joker, Lucifer, SCP-542, Cinder Fall
  • Rivals: Rand al'Thor
  • When offered his original seat in the House of Magic, he went on a rant about how alchemy is science, not magic or miracles or anything like that, since he has to actually carefully study and understand the elements involved in order to be able to do anything. It was pointed out to him that clapping your hands and altering the world around you is basically magic. He took the seat on the condition that they would at least acknowledge that there was a science within it. Asuna Kagurazaka agreed to this.
  • Respects Vash, Kenshin, and Kanji. The former two for their views against killing others unless they've crossed the Moral Event Horizon, and the latter for loving his mother. They genuinely love their mamas. Kanji on the other hand, seems quite fond of Ed for some reason.
  • Now that his brother's back in his human form, he'll just serve justice although he isn't very noble.
  • Is utterly disgusted at the depravity of Relius Clover because the latter's actions are similar to Shou Tucker. Wesker's also high on his target list, considering he and Relius are allies, with the purpose of seeking perfection. Ghetsis is no different than the rest of his enemies.
    • This causes him to reluctantly strike an alliance of sorts with Mad Scientist Mayuri Kurosutchi, who somewhat respects his philosophy, but still doesn't think very highly of him.
    • Has a huge amount of contempt for Basco ta Jolokia for abusing the concept of Equivalent Exchange, sacrificing and betraying humans for his own benefit.
      • Is deeply disturbed by the fact that Ragyo Kiryuin has the same voice base as him.
  • It's not a good idea to pull Grand Theft Me on him. The last time he was on the receiving end of it, he destroyed them by turning himself into a Philosopher's Stone, making it backfire.
  • For some reason, Guile reminds him of his superior, Roy Mustang, due to having the same voice and also being a soldier. He does learn that Guile has a friend he lost as well, reminding him of another military buddy, Maes Hughes.
  • Now with the return of Homunculus (Father), Ed's alchemy will be more of use than before in case of a Homonculi attack. The one exception is the recently ascended Greed.
    • This only became worse with the ascension of Dante, a sad and pathetic body-stealing lowlife who thinks she's worth much more than she really is and actually intended to seduce her timeline's version of Ed with the body of his friend Rosé.
  • Is rather uneasy with Dovakhiin due to the fact that the God of Dragonslaying keeps using Soul Gems so carelessly, knowing how they are so similar to Philosopher's Stones. He has confronted him about it, but Dovahkiin always defends his actions by claiming that they either contain the souls of bandits, wolves or giant rats. It does little to make Edward feel more comfortable about it.
  • Despite the fact that he claims that he never wore it, rumor has it that he once wore a military uniform one time. There's also rumors that he was called the Tea Alchemist at the time. Lol Ranger, for their own amusement, is attempting to make these rumors a reality.
  • Was offered a position of God of Artifical Limbs, but turned it down for reasons unknown. On another note, NEVER advise that he should be The God of Half Pints. Or The God of Vertically Challenged People.
    • Unfortunately for him, Tatsumaki loves teasing him about this despite being short and childish herself even as a full-blown adult. Rand al'Thor is another one who Ed's had to be restrained from attacking due to insensitive comments about his height.
  • Is a member of the Mighty Majors along with Alex Armstrong.
  • Due to the many evil gods that betray their family members to achieve some depraved goal, he is willing to be a member of Jin Kazama's anti-parental abuse club. However, since none of his parents abused him in his childhood, he is not a full-time member.
  • Is allies with Gust over their mutual skills at Alchemy however Gust's height for her age bugs Ed frequently.
  • He and his brother Alphonse are baffled at how Rias Gremory has the magical ability to change her breast size without giving up something in exchange. As a result, he, along with many other deities, in this house, is trying to investigate the cause of this in order to not look like a pervert.
  • Has recently gotten into a feud with Alucard due to the millions of souls he has absorbed, reminding Ed too much of Father. Their relationship has gotten better when Alucard made himself an enemy against the Homunculi.
  • The Joker has incurred Ed's wrath when the clown prince left a few messages pretending to be Ed's mother and Nina Tucker. To say Ed didn't find it funny would be an understatement.
  • Edward was left absolutely mortified after seeing a video that basically told him that the human transmutation recipe he and Al used in an attempt to revive their mother was completely wrong to begin with and had nothing to do with the soul.
  • Lucifer rocketed to the top of his Shit List when he caught wind of The Lab, having heard that some truly abhorrent abuses of science were occurring there. It quickly became apparent that the examples he had heard were merely the tip of the iceberg. To quote a pale and thouroughly shaken Mr. Elric:
    "Not a laboratory...a torture chamber...no 'breakthrough' is worth...not even the GUAL deserves this...!"
  • Became friends with Avatar Aang, initially getting along well due to the latter's friendly childish nature which reminds him of Alphonse. The bond became further entrenched when Aang and the Elrics came to recognize each other's tremendous value for life, refusing to kill if it's at all unnecessary and coming to the same realization he did about how the connection between one and all. He even accepts Aang's scolding about having attempted human transmutation especially in light of the above video, though he already learned plenty of lessons about that on his path to ascension.
    • That said, their first meeting was actually more hostile than one would expect. He had been in a very foul mood at the time, and he had overheard Aang calling him little. It escalated into a brutal fight, but just as Aang activated the Avatar State, Katara and Alphonse broke the tension and calmed them both down.
    • However, footage of the battle was caught and sent to Wizard and Boomstick, in which they doctored it into one of their later episodes, which concluded in Aang's victory by way of Avatar State. When said "competitors" watched and realized it was an edited version of their first meeting, Aang was horrified that he almost did to Edward what he almost did to Ozai, while Ed had to admit he would've been screwed were it not for their friends breaking it up. Both share despisal for the two hosts after that.
  • Is also somewhat friendly with Aang's successor Korra. Though the two can butt heads when competing or disagreeing on something, they both respect each other and will come to the other's defense when faced with a common threat.
  • At some point Asuna, the one who agreed for the House of Magic that his alchemy could be called science-powered magic, approached him and asked to practice using her Anti-Magic ability against his alchemy. The result officially proved both sides' point — she could only somewhat minimize the effects of his alchemic attacks on her person and immediate area, but never fully cancel them out. Because of this, Asuna approached him about getting into this house shortly after its creation, resulting in a meeting with the Court of the Gods which ultimately got his seat duplicated here.
  • He and Al were invited to Asami Sato's party to celebrate Korra gaining a new seat in the Pantheon. They brought along Winry and, at Al's insistence, Hohenheim, and were both scared stiff to see that Major General Armstrong was there and actually friends with Korra's police chief and Greed's new target of desire. He was also the one who deduced from the strange commentary surrounding Illyasviel von Einzbern and her friendship with Hercules that the Greatest Hero of Greece was in fact Illya's infamous scary giant Berserker. A funny moment took place when he tried to introduce his future wife to Korra's girlfriend Asami, only to discover that Winry had already met the Sato heiress, along with MANY other "mechanics" in the Pantheon.
    • Later, the Elric brothers stuck around for the Krew's post-party conversation with Greed. They provided additional context to Greed's re-tellings of the ordeal against Homunculus and his progeny, and whenever Greed almost talked his way into trouble with his "avaricious" persona Ed was there to snark it back down to size. One highlight was when he burst into laughter when he learned the chief's name was Lin, all too similar to Ling Yao. Ed was also the least surprised to hear Greed criticize how Lin handled breaking up with Tenzin, given his insistence on never telling lies, or talk about wanting to mentor Korra's earthbender friend Bolin, knowing how the man's history started with both Ling and Alphonse.
  • Has the absolute respect of the Emperor of Mankind, who considers him and Alphonse champions for of the talent, compassion, and overall promise of humanity.
  • Often teams up with the Italian Stallion to tell people who've been hurt that they have the ability to keep moving forward.
  • Was recently approached by Ajani Goldmane and Sailor Chibi Moon, willing to hear them out after noting that Ajani was the one who allowed Al to keep shifting between his body and his armor in the Pantheon without using human transmutation or the Philosopher's Stone. It turned out they wanted him to take part in a project to create a Soul fit for another mortal world, specifically the world of Dragon Ball. This project was in response to a threat within the timeline centered around the newly-awakened Android 21, and Ed's transmutation ability would make the Soul more naturally able to Body Surf through the Z-Fighters. Through the Soul's journey, Ed and others discovered that 21 had been turned into something with powers and a hunger she was never meant to have for the same reasons as he and Al's attempt to bring their mother back to life, causing him to feel saddened for 21 when she sacrificed herself to stop her evil persona.
    • He saw 21 in the Pantheon after Ajani and Chibiusa successfully got her ascended, when she went around thanking the people that helped with the Soul. They ended up talking science, and the way she was both innocent and intelligent made it almost like talking with Al as a girl. It was a very easy conversation and he's glad to call her a friend.
  • Was overjoyed to see the return of Maes Hughes in the Pantheon, especially with his family (and his pictures of them) getting to be his heralds. For a few minutes Ed didn't even care how ridiculous Maes' gushing over Elicia and Gracia was. He was completely unsurprised about that photo getting him ascended, and happy to receive Hughes' compliment on how tall he's grown. Later, Winry took him and Alphonse to meet up with the Hughes family and let them try out Winry's apple pie. It was slightly different from Gracia's, but everyone agreed that it was delicious.
  • He once met a Huntsman from the world of Remnant who sounded a lot like him. Of course, their first meeting wasn’t great since he felt the need to comment on his stature, sending the man into a rage. After the initial hostilities, they calmed down around each other. Though, there was some weirdness lingering, since Edward misunderstood Qrow’s ability to turn into a bird as him being some kind of chimera. Once all the misunderstanding was cleared, the two became steadfast allies.
  • As elaborated above, his seat can also be found in the House of Magic.

    Eirin Yagokoro 
Eirin Yagokoro, Goddess of Chemistry (Brain of the Moon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eirin_yagokoro_0.png
  • Intermediate Goddess (could qualify as a Greater Goddess but has been refusing the position so that she won't outrank Kaguya)
  • Theme: Gensokyo Millennium - History of the Moon. Alternatively...
  • Symbol: Her hat.
  • Alignment: True Neutral (Used to be Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Space Elf, Insufferable Genius, Archer Archetype, Hypercompetent Sidekick, Mad Doctor, The Medic, Time Abyss
  • Domains: Medicine, Pharmacy, Divinity, Immortality, Genius
  • Undying Loyalty to: Princess Kaguya Houraisan
  • Subordinates: Reisen Udongein Inaba, Tewi Inaba. Well, technically. Tei does whatever the hell she wants to do and rarely follows orders as given.
  • Allies: The Medic
  • Enemies: Nekron
  • Lady Yagokoro is the greatest pharmacist to ever live. Her crowning achievement, the Hourai Elixir, grants an absurdly perfect form of Complete Immortality and eternal youth to the imbiber, to the point of removing them completely from the cycle of life and death forever - even nonsense like time travel or paradoxes will fail to kill anything that has ever tasted Hourai. The only two known Hourai immortals are her liege Kaguya Houraisan and her bitter enemy Fujiwara no Mokou. She's under heavy pressure to reveal the exact composition of the Elixir, but she points to Albedo Piazolla as the exact sort of thing she wants to avoid - the Elixir's effects are permanent, and it's below someone of her dignity to invoke I Warned You.
    • Nekron hates her for the invention of the Elixir. Whenever either Kaguya or Mokou die, they each fall into his realm the exact time necessary to blow a raspberry at him and return before he can do anything about it. It is theorized this constant, irritating reminder of his powerlessness was a factor in the origin of the Blackest Night.
  • Mildly irritated by the Medic. While the medigun is indeed a valuable device, she openly disapproves of his excessive curiosity. People are not toys to be broken.
  • Rarely interacts with anybody but extremely old deities, as it irritates her intensely to having to stop every five minutes to explain what she's talking about to younger ones. Being a Time Abyss with millennia of experience on medicine under her belt, this happens far too often for her tastes.
  • If there's any physical work to be done, she simply sends Reisen. She herself devotes her days to perfecting her skills.
  • Even as mad as she can be as an immortal, she rarely makes anything worse than nightmare pills (for the people tired of living). While there are plenty of rumors accusing her of everything from cloning experiments to bioweapons research, she just huffs and asks where they are getting the ideas.
    • There is also question about her "Punishment Time <3" she does to Reisen if she gets into her nerves, but the proof of her doing anything like that is discarded by most people.
  • Currently in talks with Flynn, seeking to trade her technology expertise in exchange for one of the many divine relics he's collected in his travels, the brain of knowledge god she may have been named after (or, indeed, who may have been named after her). The very thought of getting her hands on such a priceless relic of divine knowledge fills the Brain of the Moon with both dread and anticipation.
  • Roahm Mythril reportedly borrowed one of her spell cards for his duel against his high priestess. Eirin has kept silent on the matter.
