Crowley as a Human 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Eyepatch
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Badass Longcoat, Eyepatch of Power, Badass even before turning Worgen, Empowered Badass Normal, Good Is Not Soft, The Musketeer, Rebel Leader, Shapeshifter Mode Lock, Sword and Gun,
  • Domains: Werewolver, War, Curses, Morality, Transformation
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Vincent Godfrey, Sylvanas Windrunner, Hagatha the Witch, Fenrir Greyback, The Crimson Court
  • Pities: Ludwig the Accursed
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Moro, Wolf O'Donnel
  • Darius Crowley was once a nobleman of Gilneas who had his land were present in the north of the kingdom and he was a fierce alliance supporter. However, after King Greymane decided to wall off the Gilneas from the upcoming threat of the Scourge and exile Gilneas from the Alliance, leaving his lands outside of the wall, Crowley became enraged by the decission of Greymane and decided to rebel against him. While he was an effective Rebel Leader, he was eventually captured and thrown to jail. But that wouldn't last, as much later the Worgen were set loose in Gilneas, transforming many of its residents into the werebeasts and Greymane saw no other option but to seek the help of Crowley, whose skills where good enough for the job and he was always an effective ally in a time of crisis. Crowley accepted to help and he too became a Worgen but he didn't lose his humanity after the curse got to him and remained composed even when transformed, something he and the people of Gilneas used to their advantage and use their newfound powers to fight the Horde and the Undead, especially the Forsaken.
  • Crowley is one of the few afflicted by the worgen curse who hasn't reverted to his human form, some night elves attribute that to some inner turmoils that prevent him from exiting the worgen form. Nevertheless, Crowley doesn't mind it a lot and was even proud when he found out that the pantheon chose him as a deity to represent the struggle that the gilnean residents have to endure. It is said that the one who convinced the Court of Gods was Greymane himself, who championed Crowley's inclusion since day one.
  • He and Vincent Godfrey are sworn enemies, even before he became a worgen, Godfrey thought Crowley was just scum for opposing Greymane and the feeling was mutual for Crowley. Everything got worse after the worgen curse hit Gilneas, with Godfrey later commiting suicide and being risen as a Forsaken, Crowley things he became even more rotten. He even had the chance to personally confront him after Hagatha the Witch made a deal with Godfrey and hired him to take the Worgen Commander down.
  • His weapon of choice tend to change, sometimes he is The Musketeer, other times he likes to uses cannons to get the job done, like the time he and 3 others joined forces in hunting down the monsters in Blackwald. Shortly after settling in the pantheon, he heard that Hagatha not only had once again emerged in the pantheon, but she was behind his Arch-Enemy Vincent Godfrey being ascended.
  • Thanks to Greymane he is very acquiantanced with the benevolent werewolves, showing that even if he is stuck as a Worgen until his inner issues are solved, he can find solace that he isn't the only one who prefers to use the lycanthropy curse for good. Being neighbours to his king, Crowley got to meet both Valkenhayn and Bigby and remained friends with them ever since.
    • However, not everyone who is cursed to become a monster is lucky enough to retain their humanity. Such fate is one that befell Ludwig the Accursed, forever haunted as being the divine representative of what becoming a monster can do to someone. Crowley hopes that one day he can recover but he also has no issue performing a Mercy Kill on Ludwig should he threaten his close ones.
  • Fenrir Greyback is one of few Werewolves that is evil by choice, and it shows. He is one of the awful reminders to Crowley of what could happen to him should he lose his senses and firmly opposes him and his lot, with Voldermort not being that different from the foul sorcerers and liches he had the unfortune of meeting. That also made him meet Remus Lupin, someone who personally cursed by Greyback and he is ashamed by that. Finding out that Crowley can't simply revert to his original form upsets Lupin to no end but is glad that unlike him, he can actually control his urges.
  • Following the advice of the Night Elves, Crowley decided to become more in-tune with nature just like the original Worgen druids. Visiting the House of Nature did help him become a lot more at peace with himself and that ended up catching the attention of San. She already met Greymane before and so was a lot more familiar with werewolves unlike in the past but was surprised to meet one who couldn't return to their original self. This in turn made her seek Ashitaka to see if both could help Crowley overcome his course (Ashitaka is very familiar with being cursed after all) and he agreed to help the Gilnean commander. So far they haven't made much progress, but the pair quickly befriended Darius in the process but there were some hiccups along the way. The most significant being Moro, San's adoptive mother, who doesn't think highly of the Worgen given that he used to be human and still behaves like one, so both San and Ashitaka have been trying their hardest to convince her that Crowley and the rest of the Worgen are good people deep down.
  • While they share a few similarities, he and Wolf O'Donnel tend to butt heads. Crowley respects his display of honor even if he is a hired good but he still lacks morals and has no problem working for truly awful people. A shame considering if things were different, they could actually be friends but at least they have complimented their respective eyepatches for looking cool on them.
  • Initially confused Amaterasu for one of the Night Elves eternals but quickly learned she is unrelated. Then she showed herself to be a Goddess and took human form to reassure Crowley she wasn't just a divine wolf but an actual deity. Having some domain over the moon, Crowley wondered if she had something to do with Elune, the Goddess the Night Elves worship but once again she had nothing to do with them. She agreed on assisting Crowley in his efforts of maintaining order in the pantheon and find a way for him to regain his human form.
  • Among the Gilneans and other alliance folks he is considered a Memetic Badass, saying he could take down all the horde down with just his his sable. Some argued he could dethrone Chuck Norris, but instead of doing that he said he would rather stay on amicable terms with him.
  • While he is still a noble, he prefers to stay out of relations with the Pantheon's nobility given that he believes they would look down on his form, plus he prefers to be on the battlefield. That said, he's had his share of awful experiences with evil noblemen as Godfrey and several other Gilnean traitors have shown, preferring undeath over being worgen. That is one of the reasons he despises the Crimson Court so much, being both part of the aristocracy AND evil vampires just rubs him the wrong way. And worse, their lot also included Godfrey into their ranks, somehow making him hate them more.
    • One of their sworn enemies, the Ancestor, wanted to meet Crowley since he took interest in the Worgen curse and how that can immunity to other curses, most notably being unable to be raised as undead. On a first glance Crowley was reminded a bit of how Greymane used to be, secluded and short-tempered nbçot to mention how The Ancestor's actions caused everything that went wrong in his world, but as a monster hunter Crowley has no issue working for him if it means removing scum from the pantheon.
  • By profession he takes elements of both Rogues and Warriors, in the HS Tavern he is labelled a Warrior by the Inkeeper, which unfortunately puts folks like Garrosh Hellscream as his superior. He is also a Monster Hunter after he ventured into Hagatha's Witchwood and slayed her with the help of the Gilnean princess and two other companions. Given the nature of said monsters, he became acquiantanced with the Hunter and commended them for slaying monster that wouldn't look out of place in the service of the Old Gods. Being the ones who personally put down Ludwig the Accursed also caught his attention, wondering if they would do the same to him if he were a feral beast but the Hunter assured Crowley that, so far, he is still a trustworthy ally.
  • "Rush the enemy, defend Gilneas!"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sinclair_pantheon.png
Commander of Babylon 5
Click here  to see Valen, the One Who Was
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Symbol of the Rangers
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Ace Pilot, The Chosen One, Dork Knight, Survivor Guilt, Laser-Guided Amnesia, Military Brat, Rules Lawyer, Shell-Shocked Veteran, Stable Time Loop, Time Travel, The Captain, Alien Abduction, Human Who Became Minbari, Liberator From the Future
  • Domains: Time, Space Stations, Liberation
  • Heralds: Delenn, Michael Garibaldi, Stephen Franklin, Marcus Cole, Londo Mollari, G'Kar, Zathras
  • Allies: Lorien, Ambassador Kosh, John Sheridan, The Doctor, Trunks Briefs (Future), Clockwork, Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor, Susan Ivanova, Grand United Alliance of Good
  • Enemies: Kang the Conqueror, Grand United Alliance of Chaos, Grand United Alliance of Destruction
  • Jeffrey Sinclair was brought into the Pantheon by the combined efforts of Lorien, Ambassador Kosh, finding his soul after it died nine hundred years in the past and bringing him to the present. Lorien told him that, if possible, they would bring others who have "Passed Beyond the Rim" into the Pantheon, which made Sinclair smile. He was looking forward to meeting old friends again.
  • He was quite pleased to see his former second, Susan Ivanova, in the Pantheon, though surprised to see that she ascended before anyone else.
  • It was a tearful reunion when he met up with his replacement. Once given the cold shoulder, John Sheridan now recognizes him as an invaluable ally.
  • The Doctor immediately struck up conversation with Sinclair, since Sinclair was one of those rare occasions of a benevolent time traveler whose going back into the past of his world and staying there was overall beneficial to the timeline, allowing for a better future to take place for his companions and allies. He also commented on Sinclair changing into Valen, which the Doctor likened to his own Regenerations.
  • He is directly opposed to the Grand United Alliance of Chaos, as the Alliance bears echoes of the reasons behind the Shadows staging continuous wars across the galaxy (one such war he went back in time to make sure the Army of Light won), and he knows too well how much that ideology costs people in the long run.
  • Sinclair is a veritable rules lawyer, as his lawyering of the Rush Act's terms on Babylon 5 - "using any means necessary" to quell a riot to divert millions of Credits from the military budget to the dock workers guild to hire new workers and get new equipment - proves. As he once said:
    "You should never hand someone a gun unless you're sure where they'll point it".
  • As Valen, he is a holy figure to the Minbari Castes, being the one who led them to victory against the Shadows a thousand years ago, and is known as "A Minbari Not Born of Minbari". As a Human who became Minbari, this is the cause for Minbari souls being born in Human bodies over the last thousand years. He was quite surprised to learn from Lorien that Delenn was actually one of his descendants.
    • Because he went back in time and became Minbari, it led to Minbari souls being reborn into Human bodies, effectively making his title have both a spiritual context for the Human race in his world, as well as an individual context for himself.
  • Kang the Conqueror hates Sinclair's altruistic nature, as the two are opposite counterparts to one another - Kang has always tried to conquer the past, whereas Sinclair went back in time to save the past.

    Sora Takigawa/Gremlin 
Sora Takigawa, God of Longing to be Human (Gremlin)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9965174df411e82dd67240619b99d89c.png
Gremlin 
  • Intermediate God ( Greater God with the Philosopher Stone)
  • Symbol: His scissor blades cutting a strand of black hair
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy, Silly Crazy, Serial Killer, His Human Self Being More Eviler Then His Phantom, Giggling Villain, Psychopathic Man Child, Smug Smiler, Yandere, Hated by Everyone, Becoming the Big Bad, Not Liking Being Call Gremlin
  • Domains: Monster, Appearance, Weapons, Killer
  • "Allies": Trollkaigers, especially Nui Harime, Ryoma Sengoku, Shogo Makishima, Father, Monokuma and his Mastermind
  • Oppose: Sou Fueki
  • Enemies:
  • Obsessed With: Any women wearing white and having long black hair who he wants to kill
  • Evil Counterpart to: Pinocchio
  • Teeth Clenched Team Work: Phoenix
  • Gremlin is an oddity among Phantoms. For one, he prefers that others call him by his human name, Sora Takigawa. There's also the fact he longs to regain his humanity back. Because of this, he would do anything, including conducting a third Black Sabbath to achieved that amount to killing as much people as possible to drive them into despair.
    • Oh, and the reason why he acts like his former human life despite being a Phantom? It's because he was a Serial Killer who killed young women with long hair because one wouldn't go out with him, making him more evil then his Phantom.
  • Sora's choice of utensils to do battle with are scissors. Or to be more precise, two pair of scissor blades call Rupture that can combine to a giant pair of scissor. It's a representation of his days as a normal human who actually killed woman with a pair of scissors.
  • Haruto Soma and Kosuke Nitoh weren't happy when they heard of Sora's acsension. The same goes to Sou Fueki. Sora might be one of the few cases in which all three Riders would be able to work together.
    • Haruto's successor Kouta Kazuraba also hates his guts due to his actions of grasping the Philosopher's Stone for his own gain by killing both Sou and Koyomi Fueki reminding him of how Redyue did the same treatment on Roshou.
  • Like his former, he is still obsess with women with long black hair. He actually kidnapped Mio Akiyama, intending to kill her. Luckily, she was saved just in time by both Haruto and Nitoh. However, she was understandable shaken by the experience and had to be console by both the Riders and her friends.
    • The incident also brought to light Sora's life as a Serial Killer. This made him a target to many good deities from House of Justice.
  • Pinnochio really doesn't like Gremlin. While Pinnochio always wanted to be a real boy, he was very disturbed at the lengths Sora would take to regain his humanity. The wooden boy tries his hardest to stay very far away from Sora.
  • Some members of the GUAE remark how hard it is to work with Sora. It's mostly that they can't stand him. Even Gremlin, a fellow Phantom, doesn't like him. The Trollkaigers however enjoys his company, especially Nui Harime as they have very similar quirks. The two are more then happy to work together in dealing with both Ryuko Matoi and Satsuki Kiryuin.
    • Sora also found a ally in Monokuma. Or more precisely, Junko Enoshima. She is fascinated by the Phantom race as they were borned and induce despair. She also wants to help him gain his humanity back if it meant it would cause despair onto others. And maybe, in the process, become a Phantom herself.
  • When the Elric brothers heard about Sora's desire for the Philosopher Stone, they natural became concern. Their concern only increased when they heard he has been seen with Father.
    • Many deities from the Fate universe also became concern when Sora showed interest in the Holy Grail and wanting to use it for his own gain. Since they know the real grail is corrupted and would cause unknown horrors, they would do everything in their power to stop him.
  • Like always, when Jontron heard of a Scissorman ascending to the Pantheon, he once again tried to use police tape to stop them. And once again, it didn't work.
  • Sora was also considered to be assassinate by the Night Raid due to his obsession of killing Akame for being a long haired girl. Not to mention that they don't like him too because of the crimes that he committed.

    Pinocchio 
Pinocchio, God of Lying Tell-tale Signs and Those Who Want To Become Human (Pinoke, Little Wooden Head, August Wayne Booth)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/become-a-real-boy_pinocchio2_6266.png
  • Quasideity (Unknown in his puppet form)
  • Symbol: His nose in his puppet form; alternatively his lederhosen and a hat with a feather
  • Theme Song: "I Have No Strings", "When You Wish Upon A Star" (shared with his conscience Jiminy) whenever Ultron is near his temples.
  • Tried to be Neutral Good, but can become True Neutral
  • Domains: Transformation, Lying, Nose
  • Portfolio: Constantly Curious, Horrible Judge of Character, wants to Become a Real Boy, much nicer than his less popular novel counterpart
  • Allies: His father Geppetto, The Blue Fairy (non-ascended), Jiminy Cricket, Edward Elric, Alphonse Elric and the ascended heroic cast of Fullmetal Alchemist, any Avengers who fought against Ultron (especially Wanda Maximoff and Hank Pym), Laura Kinney / X-23, Shrek, Ariel, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Sora, Goofy, Terra, Rapunzel, Quasimodo, Varric Tethras, Eru Chintanda, Curious George, Lamia Loveless, Astro Boy
  • Enemies: Ultron, Father, Lust, Pride, Any gods who inflicted unwilling transformation onto others
  • Protected by: Any gods who loves their children
  • Complicated Relationship with: Bibgy Wolf, Snow White
  • Conflicting Opinion: Greed
  • High Priest: David
  • Opposed by: Billy
  • Ascended when almost all of the ascended deities got sick of his novel counterpart's brattiness and decided that this much nicer version is more sympathetic, likable and, most importantly, this version story was told better, comparing to the novel.
  • While he has became a real boy, he sometimes appears as a marionette in the House of Personal Appearance as it is the form that he has the famous nose. In this form, he obviously Cannot Tell a Lie and Jiminy intends to keep it that way by always be his side as much as possible in order to retain his innocence.
  • Right after his ascension, Pinocchio gleefully plays a performance of his theme song to the Pantheon... only for the younger deities to cower in fear as it is eerily similar to Ultron's theme from an alternative universe. This angered Pinocchio as Ultron tries to destroy humanity AND his creator right after becoming sentinel. This led him to encountered and on friendly term with Ultron's arch-enemy the Avengers, especially with Hank Pym (Ultron's creator) as Pym reminds him of his own creator Geppetto and the Blue Fairy.
    • Wanda Maximoff is very protective of him, as she recognizes the fact that Pinocchio's history (created and came Back from the Dead by magic) is eerily similar to her own children. This only intensifies when Wanda learned that her ex-husband The Vision is one of his followers. This sentiment is also shared by Varric Tethras due to how much Pinocchio reminds the dwarf of his own friend Cole from his world, who he considers his little brother.
  • Got along well with Astro Boy, due to the fact that his story is basically his story WITH ROBOTS. However, sometime they have disagreement whether or not having human's emotion is worth the pain that it can cause. While Pinocchio holds different view with Astro (the former marionette thinks his emotion allows him to live a happy life with his creator and father Geppetto), he understands that Astro's job is to save people and thus cannot afford to have emotions like fear and hesitation.
  • He stumbles upon Eru and Curious George on one of his adventures in the Pantheon. The three of them now formed a group to explore things in order to satisfy their curiosity.
  • One day, when Pinocchio came back from school, he found a young woman with Wolverine Claws standing in front of his temple contemplating. When he approached her and asking what she is praying about, the woman only said that she is seeking guidance to whether or not she is deserved to be human or just better off a weapon. Pinocchio replied that while he doesn't know what a weapon is, he thinks that he personally prefers being human as he can now understand how much his father Geppetto loves and cares about him. After cracking a smile, the woman thanks him and told that she has to leave now. When Pinocchio asked what should he call her, she only utters the name "Laura" and disappeared. From then on, Pinocchio sometimes saw Laura at his temple and the two can be seen playing with each other.
  • Sympathizes with Ariel as he understands her desire to be human so badly. He just regrets that the cost of doing so in her universe involving a deal with Ursula and leaving her own family behind.
  • Because of how naive he is, Sora immediately allied with Jiminy to send Pinocchio into his class of "how to spot at ten feet the Obviously Evil person most people can spot from a mile". His progress is... improving, but at least he made friend with his classmate Terra.
  • Hates all of the ascended Homunculi deities due to how, in an alternative universe, they use such evil mean to achieving their goal of becoming human (although he gave Greed some leeway due to the latter Heel–Face Turn). This led to the ascended god from the Fullmetal Alchemist universe to discover his existence and immediately become protective of him. This is especially true for Ed and Alphonse as one of his temples is their main motivation to find (or create) the Philosopher Stone.
  • Rapunzel is very surprise to see him, as she remembers seeing him somewhere during her time at the Snuggly Ducklings. Regardless, the two get along very well due to their share love of crafting and their excitement to see the world.
    • From there, Rapunzel introduces him to Quasimodo. The two got along really well due to their love of carving wood and has been inviting Quasimodo to his house to learn about his father's works.
  • Due to the fact that Pleasure Island also has a place in the Pantheon, Jiminy has been working overtime to keep Pinocchio and the other kids as far away from that place as the cricket fears that Pinocchio might be tempted to go there again. His effort was unanimously helped by many fellow gods in the Pantheon who are caring parents and deities that love children (including those normally wouldn't get involve or those whose morality is less than upright themselves) as they witness how heartbreaking it was when his father Geppetto went out to the rain looking for him who hasn't return home from school and got eaten by Monstro.
  • Has a complicated relationship with Bigby Wolf. While the wolf felt protective of him due to the fact that one of his alternative versions is one of Fablestown residents, Pinocchio is extremely wary of Bibgy due to how the wolf constantly sneers and keeps a watchful eyes whenever his father Gepetto walks into the room. Not help the matter is that when hearing about his ascension, Bigby nearly destroyed their house when he turned into his wolf form to attack his father and sprouting something about The Adversary.
    • His relationship with Snow White is also in the same vein. While the two got along well enough, Jiminy and Gepetto are wary to meet her due to how, in an alternative universe, Gepetto and Jiminy lied about how many people his magic wardrobe can carry (It's a Long Story), thus separated Snow White's family for 28 years and this version of him failed in his duty to reunite them by running away, leaving said daughter down to a criminal path. (It's Also A Long Story). Not to mention that in that universe, Snow White punched Gepetto in the face after learning the truth.
    • Also has a weird relationship with Shrek. The ogre was overjoyed when seeing an alternative version of his friend ascended the Pantheon and wants to visit him daily. However, he was stopped by Jiminy as the cricket fears that Pinocchio would pick up some of his and that alternative version's bad habits.
  • When he ascended to the Pantheon, Billy just freaks out and starts to frantically to hide and saying something about not wanting to be eaten. Pinocchio just confused about this while Jiminy, after an investigation, starts to advice the marionette just avoiding Billy from now on.
  • Lamia frequently visits Pinocchio's temple as he is one of the most iconic example of becoming human. Jiminy only grants her entry into Pinocchio's place if she agrees to wear something more modest than her usual outfit.
  • He can be seen in the House of Theater to develop his entertainment skill, with supervising from Jiminy to avoid people taking advantage of him, of course.
  • Also has a spot in the House of Personal Appearance.
