https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/neyla.png
  • Greater God (Clockwerk); Demigoddess (Neyla)
  • Symbol: An owl in the sky.
  • Theme Song:
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil (Neyla was originally Lawful Evil)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Hatred, Immortality, Envy, Betrayal.
  • Allies:
    • Both: Evil members of the House of Hatred, Master Xehanort, Vanitas
    • Clockwerk: The remaining members of the Fiendish Five (Sir Raleigh, Muggshot, Mz. Ruby)
    • Neyla: None, considering she'll betray just about everyone.
  • Enemies:
  • Rival: Courtney Gears
  • Unwitting Pawns:
  • According to the Thievius Raccoonus, Clockwerk has been around for at least three millennia. The fourth adventure even implies that he's been around since the Ice Age! What kept him alive all this time: pure hatred to the Cooper family.
  • Neyla used to be a member of Interpol, serving as the constable to Inspector Carmelita Fox. However, after capturing Rajan, Neyla frames Carmelita and is ultimately promoted to captain. She was really playing double-agent, as she also served as the protégé to the Klaww Gang leader, Arpeggio.
    • When Clockwerk fell the first time, his body was taken apart and used by various members of the Klaww Gang, including then-member Dimitri Lousteau. Neyla tricks Sly, Bentley and Murray into collecting all the parts, and later retakes them throgh Jean Bison. When Arpeggio attempted to use the parts for himself, she betrayed him and became Clock-La.
  • Neyla has been spotted with Maleficent and Pete several times since she ascended, and has even been shown to control the Heartless. A few gods imply that Neyla has taken Riku's place as Maleficent's "protégé" following the opening of the Door to Darkness (and Riku's own Heel–Face Turn), leading to many comparisons between the Keyblade Master and evil tigress. Since then, Forze del Male has served as her pseudo-theme, but only as Clock-La.
  • It's unknown who is in control of the body, considering that Neyla took control after Clockwerk was reassembled. Some gods presume that the souls of the two were merged prior to the destruction of the Hate Chip.
  • Clockwerk was the founder of the Fiendish Five, which included himself, Sir Raleigh, Muggshot, Mz. Ruby, and the Panda King. Since Neyla took control of the body, the Panda King joined the Cooper Gang, while Muggshot continues to do dirty crime, and the whereabouts of Raleigh and Mz. Ruby are unknown. Clockwerk is trying to revive the Fiendish Five, but other than Muggshot, none of the others want to rejoin.
  • Neyla seems to be a Foil to Courtney Gears, in that they are both hot females who turn out to be evil mid-way through their debut games. In the Pantheon, they also have a strong alliance with a Disney Villainess (Maleficent and Lady Tremaine, respectively) and are able to control a certain dark creature (Heartless and Unversed, respectively).
  • Speaking of Disney Villains, Clockwerk seems to enjoy hanging out near Lady Tremaine and Clu, feeding off their pure hatred towards Cinderella and Kevin Flynn, respectively.
  • Despite being immortal, Neyla fears supernatural beings after Sly dumped a batch of ghosts from the tomb of the Evil Wolf Priestess onto her headquarters in Prague (and framed The Contessa). Because of this, she stays away from the House of Otherness.
  • Neyla has taking advantage of Oogie Boogie's inability to form new memories by claiming that he works for her. It's working so far, but Jack Skellington is aware of this, and he is planning to stop them both!
  • Clockwerk's also been spotted watching the House of Crime from numerous normally unreachable locations around the house. When informed of his presence, The triad are understandably prepared in the event Clockwerk decides to attack the house in a attempt to take his arch-nemesis' life.

    Lorien 
Lorien, the First One
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5fc2556d3067f3fc2a9147697f1449e1.PNG
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A Three-Dimensional Five
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Life Energy, The Mentor, taking followers away upon death, The Ageless, End of an Age, Energy Being
  • Domain: Immortality, Mentors
  • Allies: Kosh
  • Followers: John Sheridan and the Army of Light, the First Ones, the Shadows
  • Lorien is a First Born, the first race to gain sentience in his universe. He himself is The First One, making him the first sentient being in his entire universe. He and his kind taught and mentored many of the races who became First Ones later on in existence, including the Vorlons and the Shadows.
  • Lorien's race was originally born immortal, kept in check by their naturally low birthrates. However, as he himself explained, later generations lost their immortality, eventually growing old and infirm, and dying. As he put it: "We have lived too long; seen too much. To live on as we have is to leave behind joy, and love, and companionship, because we know it to be transitory, of the moment...we know it will turn to ash. Only those who lives are brief can imagine that love...is eternal." Some members of the Emotion, Friendship and Love Pantheons aren't sure how to interpret his words.
    • "You should embrace that remarkable illusion. It may be the greatest gift your race has ever received."
  • Lorien is also an Energy Being, and he has shown himself able to travel around the stars both with and without his space ship as a result of his evolution to this higher form.
  • He was able to save John Sheridan's life by infusing him with some of his life energy after the latter's death, but it would only last for twenty years before his body simply "stops".
  • He has some points of conflict with the Ancients regarding their Policy of Non-Interference. While The Ancients criticise Lorien, citing that the Vorlons and Shadows are perfect examples of why they do not interfere in the lower planes and looking upon him as a 'lower being' not in the same 'Ascended' state as them, Lorien states that their policy of non-interference is part of the reason why certain conflicts got as bad as they did (the Ori), and he dislikes the way they treat their fellow Ancients who break the policy, whereas Lorien cares about the younger First Ones, who in turn up look up to and respect him like a father-figure.
  • Kosh was strongly humbled by Lorien's appearance in the Pantheon, recalling the last time he had interacted with the man who was the father-figure to his entire race.
  • Lorien looks upon the Grand United Alliances of Law and Chaos as dark reflections of what the Vorlons and Shadows could have become if they had pushed their conflict of Order vs Chaos too far, which almost did occur at the end of the Second Shadow War. He particularly frowns upon the heads of both groups, YHVH and Lucifer, for their respective beliefs in an absolute viewpoint or prizing might above all others. He knows all too well what happened when the Vorlons and Shadows went down those paths, and has joined himself with the Grand United Alliance of Good to oppose them and, if possible, turn away those who have fallen under their influence. It is his presence and the lessons they learnt that keep the Vorlons and Shadows from falling into the conflict of Order vs Chaos once more.
    • Regardless, there are still some in the Pantheon who see the former beliefs of the Vorlons and Shadows as something to aspire to. In Steven Armstrong's case, as an example, he felt the Shadows had the right idea all along.

  • Opposes: Charles zi Britannia
  • Opposed by: Lelouch vi Britannia, the House of Knowledge, The Doctor
  • After the destruction of the Singularities, a being called the Alien God saved the lives of former Chaldean Masters originally known as the A-Team, now named as the Crypters to rule over the Lostbelts, timelines that completely diverged from the Pan-Human History and has no way of progressing. The goals of the Crypters is to destroy each other's Lostbelt until only one remains and became it's own divergent timeline. Chaldea's new goal is to eradicate these Lostbelts to protect their own timeline and by destroying the Lostbelts' Fantasy Trees, they will be erased from existence. The Lostbelt King of the 3rd Lostbelt is Qin Shi Huang, a version of Them where They are able to achieved immortality thanks to using Zhenren technology. They are able to rule the entire world for several centuries that it actually lasts until A.D. 2018, achieving eternal peace with no war happening ever again to the point Heroic Spirits and the Counter Force never existed, and technology so advanced They made a backup humanoid body for themselves and Their actual body is a floating castle above the capital of Their China. Despite this, Their people are more like farm animals, having no basic education, not knowing the true suffering of humanity, being stuck in one place, the advanced technology only reserving for the emperor, and short lifespans as They believed that gaining knowledge would made Their people so selfish that it would lead to conflict and humanity's downfall, nevertheless, Their people have access to medicine that could cure every disease, crops that could grow on their own, and having a sense of purpose thanks to their undeveloped nature. Before the destruction of his Lostbelt, he made a deal with one of the Crypters, Hinako Akuta revealed to be Yu Miaoyi, that she could see the Lostbelt version of Xiang Yu in exchange of analyzing her body due to her origin as a True Ancestor and considers her as an equal as a result. When Chaldea arrived, who are there to received a cure for the Master and Gordorf's poison and hopefully to destroy the Lostbelt's Fantasy Tree to collapse, he made a deal with them due to being interested in the Shadow Border's Imaginary Numbers Dive Engine, but the moment they taught Their villagers poetry, They started to deem them a threat that needs to be eliminated. In the end, They decided to help Chaldea after they win by having Their last battle with them by defeating Their Lostbelt's Fantasy Tree and destroy Their own Lostbelt. In Their last moments before being summoned in Chaldea, They are seen with the villagers that Chaldea protected, who were staying in a cave, as a young boy recited a poem about the moon that Jing Ke taught him, with the emperor realizing just how hearing a poem that isn't about Them feels refreshing as all of them await of the destruction of the Lostbelt.
  • When the Master of Chaldea is lurking around the Pantheon, he saw a number of people complaing about why the Emperor of the Qin Dynasty ascended. Curious, he decided to see what the complaints are all about, that is, until he saw it is actually the Qin Shi Huang he knew and summoned in Chaldea. Seeing the rage of various people, he decided to interrupt them by telling that They are not the real Qin Shi Huang they knew and narrating them about his adventures of the 3rd Lostbelt, hoping that their anger would lessen. While they are in relief, some of them still didn't like Them as They and Their historical counterpart are not that different based on the story they were given, but since the emperor only desires to be in the Master of Chaldea's side for the time being, a lot of people decided to leave Them be.
  • A lot of people pointed out They and Lelouch have similar voices, to the point they actually called the former by the latter's name. Lelouch opposes him as They made Their own people illiterate and not giving them the life they deserve, reminding him of why he rebelled against the Britannia Empire, although voicing out that opinion would make him a hyporcrite as he did some similar things during his reign as the emperor, despite having a good reason to do so. For Qin's part, They became intrigued upon hearing that Lelouch did evil things to make the whole world hate him so that they could achieved eternal peace, a solution that actually worked and wants to know more about it, but it's unlikely for Lelouch to tell Them about it anytime soon.
    • Though They do recognized the goodness of Charles zi Britannia's plan on creating a world without lies, something that They respected, They won't deny that he is pretty much a hypocrite as what he did to Nunally to hide the truth behind her blindness is pretty much a lie and that his Geass power is creating lies, which means that he created a lot of lies everytime he uses his Geass.
  • They didn't gain the respect of the House of Knowledge as They isolated Their people from education, causing them to become mindless slaves who don't know the true suffering of humanity and having the concept of freedom. Even if They have good reasons to do so, they still didn't like what They did to Their citizens and pointed out how this reason causes Their empire to become a Lostbelt in the first place.
  • They are intrigued that a Beast of Calamity, an enemy of Chaldea in fact, share the same ideals as him. They are both frustrated by the sufferings that humanity suffered and so they guided humanity in their own way, only that humanity wouldn't truly progress and their solution on ending their suffering is to shorten their lifespans. They are even intrigued by his plan on going back in time to eradicate the entire human race and replace it with a perfect species that he could guide to rule the planet.
  • They are interested to hear an another True Ancestor named Arcueid Brunestud, and since They gained immortality through the Zhenren and is not completely different to that of a True Ancestor in terms of mechanism, They considers her an equal, after all, They did consider Yu Miaoyi as one after discovering her true origins.
  • The Doctor became interested in Them after hearing about the existence of the Lostbelts and how they are able to exist completely diverging from Pan-Human History, having no way of progress, and how destroying their Fantasy Trees would simply erase them from existence. But he makes it clear that he outright hates Them for isolating Their people from the rest of the world and how it failed as a society as there is no way for Their empire to progress further as Lostbelts are always destined to be destroy due to how it fails to continue it's progression for the human. Qin Shi Huang is interested in him due to being an immortal alien time traveller that can reincarnate multiple times and his TARDIS interests him as it reminds him of the Pan-Human History technology that clearly intrigues him due to being bigger on the inside, for having the ability to time travel through time and space, and having it's own conciousness.
  • They consider elite rulers (specifically those who are immortal) as Their rivals as They believed They should be the only ruler that should exist, making it clear that if They don't like the state the Pan-Human History is, They will turn it into a replica of Their own Lostbelt, and only accepts the Master of Chaldea to share with Them the title that of a ruler, which caused Them to grumble in disappoint as the latter clearly has no interest on becoming one. Being considered as the order and strongest and oldest being of the universe that the Chaos Gods even feared him and wanting to lead humanity to what it should be, They want to usurp The Emperor of Mankind and challenges him to see who is the greater emperor. They consider Vandal Sage to be an enemy, as They see him as exactly like the side of humanity that They are disgusted to see and that he only wants to conquer the world in his own ways and not for the betterment of their future.
  • Aldia hates and considers Them to be an unworthy ruler who don't deserve Thwir immortality as They stripped away the freedom, the mentality, and the intelligence of humans and not giving them the needs that they deserved that pretty much is only owned by the Themselves. Qin also hates him in return as he experimented on innocent people, removing the souls of a species and turning them into slaves, and other horrible actions he committed.
  • Can easily relate to Hob Gadling as they both enjoy their immortality, even if the latter doesn't like Their ideals. Still, the two are drinking buddies and usually tell each other's stories during their lives.
  • Hates Alex Wesker for being a seeker of immortality who wants to conquer the world through bioweapons, which They really hated as the reason why They banned the development of weapons and military technology is to stop wars and conflict from happening in Their Lostbelt.
  • They can easily compete with Kars in terms of how they never to themselves with their biological gender and wanting to be above their own species, but while Qin really cares about humanity not just as a whole but also individually and has good intentions despite the atrocities he committed, Kars wants to rule the world and does things selflessly and Qin is reallly not having someone like him to do that.
  • Doesn't like Lord Voldemort for the atrocities he committed in the name of a "perfect wizarding world", by allowing children to work despite not allowed to do so, willing to kill a baby Harry Potter, attempting to corrupt him by forcing him to kill one of his followers, murdering powerful wizards to advanced his goal, among other things. Also, They don't like the fact that Voldemort insists he should be the only immortal in existence and wants to destroy him for saying something like that to those that deserve immortality.
  • Became highly interested in Toyosatomimi no Miko thanks to her encounter on immortality. Worried about her life as a mortal, she encounter a sage named Seiga who told her Taoism is the only way of her to gain immortality, the same philosophy where the Zhenren technology Qin got came from. She started ejecting herself with all kinds of substances which damages her health, one of which is cinnabar, what's more interesting to Them is that it's a toxic ore of mercury, a substance that They had a love-hate relationship with. To solve her issue, she uses a method on transferring souls and plans to fake her own death to become a King in the Mountain, only for Buddhist monks to cast a seal on her mausoleum, which prevented her resurrection. Her mausoleum was sent to Gensokyo, a land where everything nobody believes in will go, which is enough for her for her resurrection to take place. They are waiting for the day if she will become a ruler as she is now a recluse loner waiting for the day that people will need her. While They don't want to have a rivalry to those who are immortal rulers (even those who want to become one) as They want to be the only ruler in the entire world, They do see her as a challenging ruler oponent if she ever wants to become one.
  • Learns of an alternate universe where They became a mummy and attempts to conquer the world using unlimited power but failed to do so, They are humiliated because They would have done the same. Regardless, Imhotep finds him to be a worthy advessary on who should conquer the world, and Qin doesn't want to because while They wants to have some competition, They completely regard Imhotep as a threat to humanity and since They want to cooperate and guide the Master of Chaldea on saving the world, They see him as an obstacle for that.
  • Hates it when otherwordly threats are able to bypass the Great Wall that is meant to protect it from them in Their Lostbelt. Whether it's the Alien God bypassing it's defences and placing it in Pan-Human History or the Priestess of the Alien God being able to enter to visit Koyanskaya and Them not being alterted by her presence. They're frustrated that the Administrators have access to the compendium of all knowledge and being able to rewrite or destroy Their world easily. The fact Their completely immortal overseer Canopus makes it a challenge, since Alcor refuses to cooperate with Them so that They'll receive the technology to enter the Admins' temple.
  • Also resides in Monarchs.
  • "We are indeed the first and final emperor. The absolute and immortal ruler who pacifies the Heavens and the Earth for all eternity, Shi Huangdi."

    Yveltal 
Yveltal, God of Immortality through Rebirth (the Destruction Pokémon, The One True Destroyer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yveltal_art.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A stylized red letter "Y"
  • Theme Song: Battle! Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde (shared with the other two Pokémon in that track's title), Fight with Yveltal and Others!
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Gender: Genderless
  • Ability: Dark Aura
  • Moveset: Oblivion Wing, Dark Pulse, Hurricane, Foul Play
    • Z-Move: Black Hole Eclipse
  • Portfolio: Giant Flyer, The Phoenix, being a benevolent bringer of destruction, Dark Is Not Evil, Horrifying Hero, Feathered Fiend (only to his enemies).
  • Domains: Death, Nature, Beasts
  • Allies: Xerneas, Arceus, Lugia & Ho-Oh, Emmett, Captain Falcon, Madoka Kaname, Lucifer, Yuna, Kouichi Kimura, Fujiwara no Mokou, the Spring Sprite, Phoenix, SCP-1440
  • Enemies: Lysandre, Hexxus, Melkor, Frieza, the Firebird
  • Annoyed By: Ratatoskr, Rod
  • Odd Friendship with: Anivia
  • Yveltal has a lifespan of only 1,000 years. Near the end of its life, it is said to form a cocoon and absorb the life force of all living things nearby so it can be reborn. Upon hatching, it appears that Yveltal behaves differently from Pokémon-Amie; unlike other legendary Pokémon, it behaves like a baby Pokémon, which implies that it literally is being reborn.
  • It once roosted on the House of Beast with the tile Dark Phoenix until a true phoenix has arrived in the Pantheon. It has since resettled, but it doesn't view this phoenix with contempt, as he has a purpose in the cycle of life and death.
  • Although it is a god of destruction, it cannot stand those who destroy things without reason or do so out of cruelty or malice. To Yveltal, destruction is a necessary end to which a new beginning can form.
    • Because of this, it holds a strong respect towards Arceus and Xerneas, viewing them as allies since they bring life, which balances its duty of bringing death.
      • Yveltal also views Madoka's deeds involving her universe favorably; it was so wracked by grief and despair, she destroyed it to create a kinder and gentler universe in its place.
    • It also has a strange friendship with Emmett, due to Emmett's ability to build after Yveltal purges the world.
    • Friends with Lucifer, one of whose roles is to destroy the existing status quo, so that those strong enough to reshape it can do so.
    • And as expected, Yveltal is on good terms with Sailor Saturn, a fellow 'Avatar of Destruction' who destroys the old to make way for the new just as Yveltal does. They have, in the past, worked together to "clean the slate" a few times, as well as to fight together against those who would bring Destruction just for the sake of chaos and suffering. In fact, if Yveltal weren't already partnered with Satan Jacob, he'd likely have ended up as Saturn's Poké-partner instead.
  • Unlike other birds, Yveltal is a quadruped, being able to use its clawed wings to move on land (similar to the likes of Archaeopteryx). Although it is not as agile on land as it is in the air, Yveltal can still move surprisingly fast, allowing it to take enemies by surprise.
  • Despite not being an Aeon, Yveltal has granted Yuna with the ability to summon it whenever she can.
  • Upon seeing Yveltal, Ratatoskr was reminded of the eagle above the Yggdrasil tree (the squirrel never did bother to learn its name), so he tried to get a rise out of the giant bird. Unamused, Yveltal chased the squirrel off with a few well-placed Oblivion Wings.
  • If you see Yveltal in its cocoon state, make sure you leave it alone. The last time it was awakened abruptly, Yveltal went on an out-of-control rampage and had to be calmed down by Xerneas.
    • It is an unwritten rule that no one in the GUAE or GUAC uses Yvetal as a weapon. They find it too despicable. How dangerous and badly can this go? Just look at the Pantheon during the Tarot Crusaders incident when a certain being pissed off Yvetal and caused it to destroy most of the Pantheon and nearly caused the souls of those hit with Oblivion Wing to be devoured by the darkness within Limbo.
  • Rod has gone on record that Yveltal needs to be banned from the Pantheon, falsely accusing it of being the embodiment of the Birdemic. Yveltal, like most of the Pantheon, has ignored his request.
  • To everyone's surprise, Yveltal supports the Spring Sprite despite their differences, and opposes the Firebird despite their similarities.
  • During an incident involving a gigantic, revenge-seeking ant, Yveltal was utilized along with Xerneas as part of a team engineered to counter said ant's elemental affinities. Yveltal was also taught some new ways to utilize its Oblivion Wing by its Trainer, including firing two beams at once at separate targets from its wings, sweeping a beam in a wide arc with its tail, and firing beams from both wings and its tail and focusing them all on a single target to inflict massive damage, though Yveltal's nature as the embodiment of death did cause several problems due to its Trainer making several hasty and ill-advised decisions during the battle. Yveltal's Trainer during that incident also gave it the nickname of "Soma Cruz", after the reincarnation of Dracula; Yveltal is unsure what to make of this.

    Fujiwara no Mokou 
Fujiwara no Mokou, Goddess of Immortal Recklessness (Hourai Incarnate, The Crimson Watchguard)

  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: The crest of Fujiwara Clan on a visage of a Phoenix
  • Theme Music: Reach for the Moon, Immortal Smoke
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Complete Immortality That She Regrets Gaining, Playing with Fire, Descendant of Fujiwara Clan, Going Insane And Then Calming Down, Phoenix-like Human, Endless Revenge, Kick Chick, The Determinator
  • Domains: Fire, Immortality, Revenge, Phoenix
  • Eternal Rival: Kaguya Houraisan
  • Allies: Connor and Duncan MacLeod, Ikaruga, Adell, Yveltal, Sumireko Usami, SCP-1440
  • Conflicting Opinion on: Zeref
  • Enemies: Albedo Piazzolla, Nekron
  • Part of the legendary Fujiwara Clan, Mokou's life was devastated when Kaguya Houraisan rejected her father's marriage proposal. After his subsequent disgrace, Mokou wandered the Earth until by chance she met with a party of soldiers dispatched to destroy the Hourai Elixir, stalked them as they fell one by one, killed the Sole Survivor and drank the elixir. However, immortality came at too heavy a price: distrusted by everyone, unaging, unchanging, she soon realized her decision had only left her more lonely than ever. Following a couple of centuries of insanity and wandering, she found Kaguya again, and in rekindling their feud (which Mokou had almost entirely forgotten about), she managed to find some direction and purpose. When Mokou somehow managed to find her way to the Pantheon, her confusion gave way to cautious optimism: at the very least, she might find more immortals she can try to chat up.
    • She was pended to become goddess of Endless Revenge due to the fact that the feud between her and Kaguya is not going to ever end. However, Kaguya finds it being like a game and Mokou has never really cared about the revenge part, only about the fact that she has something to waste her time on.
    • She was also indented to become the Humanoid Incarnation of The Phoenix, but she declined that offer. However, she has become sort of friends with Yveltal in the sense that if Yveltal runs out of life, well, Mokou has plenty of life in herself.
  • She often asks other gods to try and find ways to kill her for good. However, no matter how much punishment she takes, she just keeps on getting back up again and again. Even though she is helping them by burning her own body up.
  • Due of her immortal life, she is drawn into other immortals like the two MacLeods. Though they found out the hard way that decapitating her will not turn her mortal.
  • Even though she doesn't want to make many mortal friends for obvious reasons, she is far from being mean. She seems to be happy to help when she can, but only for the duration of the mission.

    Geras 
Geras, God of Self-Reconstruction (Terminas)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/geras_4.png
  • Intermediate God (Can reach higher levels everytime he comes back from the dead)
  • Symbol: His chestpiece
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral leaning to Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Resurrective Immortality, Becoming stronger every time he revives, Left eternally falling in the Sea of Blood, Time Master, Dishing Out Dirt, The Dragon, Golem, Ridiculously Human Robots, Scary Black Man, Seen It All, Time Abyss
  • Domains: Time, Servants, Immortality, Fighting, Brutality, Death
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Doomfist, Dio Brando
  • Enemies:
  • Geras is one of Kronika's most powerful and loyal servants. He is a construct that was personally created by the Keeper of Time, exists in a fixed point in time and like his master has lived for millennia. Notably, given his time manipulation powers and rare physical composition, Geras is essentially immortal, being able to revive himself at will and getting stronger and smarter each cycle. This was enough for Kronika to request his ascension but it was not an easy task to get him around in the pantheon.
  • Turns out, before Kronika was defeated, she sent several of her best men to deal with the invading forces. Geras was one of them and even if he proven to be unkillable, Raiden has already stated that immortality usually can bring fates worse than death and so he trapped Geras wrapped him in chains to an anchor and threw him into the sea of blood, a red ocean with no bottom, leaving Geras to forever sink, unable to die from drowning. But Kronika managed to recover him from the eternal punishment by requesting his ascension and immediately gathered enough allies to get him into the pantheon. Once a deity, Geras displayed an uncharacteristic amount of uncontrolable anger and a desire to enact revenge on Raiden for leaving him to such fate, which Kronika took advantage of and made him once again her top servant.
  • Naturally adept at time manipulation, being able to control time at will and however he sees fit, often with brutal results. Being a being made of sands and able to manipulate time, the Prince wondered if he is made of the same material as the sands of time. Geras only retorted that while the material might be similar, he believes himself to be superior to the time control the Prince has.
  • Given his connections to Kronika, Geras quickly became another of the Pantheonic Time Police targets considering how dangerous he is. Specifically, his sand manipulation abilities are similar to that of Chromie's and he seems to have a certain amount of respect for Chronoa, who could be considered the Good Counterpart to his master.
  • He often acts as the envoy of Kronika's wrath and he demonstrated this when his master sent him to pay a visit to the Occult Research Club after what they did to Shinnok. The ensuing fight left several of them badly injured because they weren't expecting Geras to resurrect quickly and even getting stronger to boot and his time manipulation techniques were on par with Gasper Vladi's, the O.R.C. Bishop. Needless to say, Geras became another of the many deities Issei wants to personally kill because he dared go after his friends.
  • Being a construct of sand and living outside the laws of time, Geras and the Dahaka have a lot in common at surface level but the similarities end there. For starters, the Dahaka has more autonomy and a bigger desire to punish those that endanger the timeline, which includes Kronika and Geras even if they are also keepers of time. The Dahaka is not impressed about Geras allegued immortality and it's implied that to all his victims he doesn't just merely kill them but traps them in a personal pocket dimension of his. Geras is not deterred either, finding the shadowy entity intriguing but also not really a threat.
  • Several people noted that he and the infamous Talon leader Doomfist have a lot of similarities being a Scary Black Man that are very imposing, with Geras using a gauntlet made of sand from time to time. Instead of being antagonistic, Geras decided to offer Doomfist and Talon the chance to fulfill their mission of a stronger society if they would aid Kronika in creating the new era, where Talon can do as it pleases with no opposition. At first Doomfist was intrigued by the proposal and briefly considered accepting but hasn't fully decided on doing it since he is aware of Kronika being a bit deceiving plus the fact that she seems to favour order over chaos (and that her brand of "chaos" doesn't really suit his vision). However, he seems vastly more interested in besting Geras in Kombat if given the chance.
  • He has lived for eons and rarely does he ever get impressed by anything. Surprisingly, he knows a lot about human history and it's important figures. He once compared Cassie Cage to Joan of Arc, who he labelled as the young martyr. He noticed that the pantheon version of her was quite different and that she didn't take kindly to his description and the fact that Geras serves a dark force.
    • He also tends to tell every single Wild West deity about the time he got shot by Wyatt Earp, which can get quickly. Just ask Erron Black.
  • Deep down, he is just a Death Seeker who his inability to die has made him resigned to be Kronika's servant. Some consider him a fool for believing that, considering many people have the belief that his blood is what makes him immortal and would do the same for anyone who comes into contact with that, making him a target for Immortality Seekers. Others pity him, since his existance is merely to serve a megalomaniacal titan who controls time at her will and refuses to let her servant die.
  • While an artificial construct, Geras isn't technically a robot. That said, he is surprisingly affable with Nox, a powerful time manipulator who seeks to return to his family whatever means necessary. Geras quickly offered him to become a servant of Kronika, assuring that his family would be back in Kronika's new era and Nox agreed on the terms, unaware that Kronika doesn't intend to honor her part of the bargain.
    • Similarly, Geras is aware that Kessler, an alternate version of Cole MacGrath, could be useful for Kronika's forces and made a similar offer. Kessler accepted, only to get the chance to defeat his past self once and for all.
  • Of all the time deities that aren't Kronika, he seems to like Chronos the most, possibly because of the resemblance to his master. Chronos actually is surprisingly fond and wouldn't mind the assistance of Geras is it wasn't for his connection to Kronika. The GUAG believes that should Geras stop serving Kronika, it would benefit them if he want under Chronos wing and have they tried to sway him in that direction.
    • Progress was made when in one possible timeline, Geras betrayed Kronika and became the new Keeper of Time, intending to sculp the perfect timeline so he could finally rest. In the meantime, he realized that trying to force mortals to follow his rule is what drove Kronika to madness and that instead he sacrificed his essence so that the hourglass could run itself. That way mortals could find their own destiny and he could finally rest, which convinced the GUAG that Geras has potential for being a truly benevolent deity but his binds to Kronika prevent him from doing that.

  • Symbol: Gungnir, her red energy spear, piercing a scarlet moon.
  • Theme Song: Septette for the Dead Princess
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Childish Besides Her Age, Vampires, Turning into a Bat, Charismatic, Fast and Powerful, Manipulation of Fate (or so she claims), Manipulation of Blood, Royal Brats
  • Domains: Vampires, Age, Children
  • Allies: Flandre Scarlet (sister), Sakuya Izayoi, Hong Meiling (henchmen), Patchouli Knowledge, Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Viridi, Rachel Alucard (friends), Roahm Mythril (acquaintance)
  • Enemies: Dracula, Dio Brando, Enrico Pucci, Yuuki Terumi, The Godmodder
  • Remilia has been living in the Pantheon for a long time... not out of her own volition, but because Dracula and Dio Brando imprisoned her in her own house, keeping her as a prisoner of the GUAE; this caused the rest of the residents of the Scarlet Devil Mansion to scatter. Patchouli went into hiding, Meiling's position as Butt-Monkey was reinforced, Flandre was left without anyone she knew and Sakuya was forced to join the GUAE under Dio's wing.
    • Sakuya finally gathered enough resources to try to save her master, after being a playable character and a boss in two games, with Remilia being also present in one of them as a tough boss. With the help of Seija Kijin of all people, both, with the rest of the residents of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, were able to distract Dracula and Dio, save Remilia and kick both out of the mansion.
  • Remilia's immortality is directly tied to her immaturity: She forfeits being mature in exchange for eternal youth; that is, she can live forever because she never grows up. Viridi was pissed off due to her stealing one of her positions, but was at least glad that the one she took away was the most embarrassing one.
  • Remilia claims to be the most charismatic person in the Pantheon. However, if she ever comes into a embarrassing situation, she hides in shame, an event which is called a "Charisma Break". She has gotten better when it comes to recovering her charisma though.
  • Has found a nice friendship with Rachel Alucard, finding quite a nice set of similarities with her. Not that much of a fan of Adrian Tepes due to him being the son of Dracula, even after he apologized for his father's actions against her.
  • Went berserk when she realized one of her underlings, Hong Meiling, had been shafted with the position of Goddess of Butt Monkeys. She testified as to her role in her own liberation and Word of God stating she is fairly competent at her job if utterly outclassed by regular thief Marisa Kirisame. When pressed on the matter, she snidely invited the doubting parties to test their mettle against Marisa themselves. Her defense of her subordinate got Meiling promoted to the House of Defense as the new Goddess of Gate Guardians.
    • Got even more annoyed when she found out what a "hikikomori" is, and why her friend Patchouli Knowledge had been conferred the title of their patron deity. She quickly petitioned for her title to be changed to be the Goddess of Magic Librarians.
  • Is none too happy with The Godmodder for being ultimately behind the attack on the House of Defense that put Hong Meiling into critical condition for a short period of time.

  • Allies: Shiki Ryougi, Rei Ayanami, Motoko Kusanagi, Shirou Emiya, Rin Tohsaka
  • Opposed By: Araya Souren, Shiki Tohno
  • It is unknown how long she has been without her original body. It's inconsequential in the end because her puppet bodies are so well made they're impossible to distinguish from the original. They're all equally powerful and equally hot.
  • She got this position on the virtue of automatically transferring her complete soul to the next body when one is destroyed, no matter where it is. Other people might just have clones of themselves but can't move their soul, or have to have their minds manually uploaded to their next body, or have to settle for an inferior form.
  • Despite opposing him, she really doesn't hate Araya Souren. She mostly just disagrees with his methods of trying to reach the Akashic Records.
  • Ever since what happened to Cornelius Alba, other members of the Pantheon have been wary not to call her "Dirty Red." Dante tried hitting on her by saying it. It evidently took Black Jack a while to reattach his limbs.
  • She has a penchant for taming Eldritch Abominations and keeping them in luggage. Airport staff have been put on notice.
  • She is one of the members of the Pantheon who can get Shiki Ryougi to do, well, anything as a favor. Other dieties are still rather surprised when they see the psychotic demon hunter standing in line for a new manga release, looking thoroughly annoyed.
  • She doesn't really oppose Shiki Tohno for anything he did personally and is even willing to work with him. Unfortunately, thanks to Aoko, Shiki is forced to support her opposition by default.
  • Ever since her sister, Aoko Aozaki, heard about her ascending, she has been seriously considering actually accepting a position if only to oppose her. This, of course, means that Touko has been doing everything possible to block or distract her from doing so. Considering how free spirited and laid back Aoko is, this has worked...so far.
    • If Aoko actually put her mind to it, she would probably be able to. She does have her student Shiki Tohno all too willing to vouch for her. Not to mention the power of the Fifth True Magic combined with her particular skills, which has even Greater Gods concerned.
    • To compound matters, Aoko just got upgraded to Protagonist status ever since the release of her own story.
  • Rin Tohsaka begun studying under her. While some deities were surprised that she had taken on an apprentice, she states that it was a good way to stave off boredom. Those who are a little wiser have noticed that Shiki Ryougi has been extremely annoyed with this development and suspect that Touko planned on this.

    Ai Astin 
Ai Astin, Goddess of Worlds Without Death
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aiastin.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her shovel
  • Theme Song: "Birth"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Moe, Wide-Eyed Idealist, All-Loving Heroine, half-human, half-Gravekeeper, performing a reaper's job in a deathless, godless world
  • Domains: Death, Life, Travel, Idealism
  • Heralds: Julie Sakuma Dmitriyevich, Scar, Alice Color
  • Allies: 7S!Death, Death of the Endless, Decim, Lord Death, Chito and Yuuri, The Young Girl and the Soldier, Sam and Dean Winchester, Antonius Block, Shovel Knight
  • Enemies: Nekron, Nagash
  • Opposes: Dhuum, Chuck Shurley
  • Ai Astin is a young girl hailing from a world that has been abandoned by God. That world fell out of order and became stagnant, with no new people being born and nobody dying when they should. God's last gift before leaving was the Gravekeepers, the only beings capable of granting true death to humans who don't wish to soldier on as undead. Ai is half-Gravekeeper, having been born from the very first Gravekeeper and a human father. Although she is very naive, she has a strong desire to save the world that God has abandoned. After meeting her father and burying him, she went on a journey in order to help people in whatever ways she can, accompanied by her father's friend Julie, a pure Gravekeeper known as Scar and later a boy around her age called Alice.
  • Ai was traveling with her friends through her devastated, yet oddly beautiful and peaceful world. At some point they stopped to set up camp for the night, and Ai decided to wander off on her own. After arriving at a beach, which she marvelled at because she had never seen one before, she was approached by an eerie figure in a black cloak. When Ai levelled her shovel at him and demanded to know his name, he answered "I am Death," which astonished Ai. She didn't have time to fully process that information before Death was suggesting they have a nice game of chess, which a confused Ai found herself agreeing to. In the conversation that ensued, Ai wondered, somewhat accusingly, what Death was doing if he no longer reaped lives, to which he replied he was not the Death of her world and thus had no power over it, and that he was only visiting out of curiosity at what a deathless world was like. The implication of another world got Ai's attention, but she had a chess game to focus on first. Except, as she came to realize, she had no idea how to play chess, as she'd never had a chance to before...
    • At any rate, Death eventually left Ai with a portal to the "other world" open and an invitation to enter. Curiosity got the better of her and she went in. She explored on her own for a bit until she came across a tank, from which popped out two girls, Chito and Yuuri. The three girls talked and Ai learned that the place she was in was the Pantheon, and that Chito and Yuuri themselves were from a world that was also nearing its end and they had been traveling, much like Ai. As Ai joined them on their travels, the three girls became close, and Chito and Yuuri decided to bring her to the Main House to suggest her for proper ascension. Ai's story and the world she came from were deemed interesting enough that she got a position.
  • Of course, she met Death again, who was rather satisfied to see her made into a goddess and invited her to play chess again someday... when she has a better grasp on the game. Given he's one of the heads of the House of Life and Death where Ai is placed, the two are in close contact. The other House head Ai gets along with is Death of the Endless, who appreciates the young girl's zest for life and empathy despite her paradoxal position as a reaper-like being. She also thinks Ai is just adorable and often fawns over her. She also makes sure Death doesn't mess with the naive Ai too much.
    • Other death-bringers she likes include Decim and Lord Death, largely because of how kind they are. With Decim in particular she finds him to be the entity most similar to a Gravekeeper due to him originally lacking in emotion and later learning to be more expressive, in a similar development to that of Ai's pure Gravekeeper friend Scar (Ai herself always had emotions due to being half-human). Ai likes to hang out at Decim's bar, though he can't help but think it looks bad for a 12-year-old to hang around his joint, but he likes her too much to tell her to leave.
  • Gravekeepers are naturally able to detect the proximity of any undead and have an itch to bury any they find (something that is belied by their constant Dissonant Serenity). Because Ai was born half-human, these instincts are not present in her, and she is more than happy to allow the undead go on with their un-lives if they truly wish to remain in that state of being. Thus, she has a better relationship with the House of Undead than one might expect. Even back in her world there was a whole city for undead called Ortus whose culture she respected and she got along swimmingly with its leader. The House of Undead is much the same as Ortus to her. It's just too bad that the House heads are awful, especially Nekron and Nagash. Ai thinks it's unforgivable that they use the undead to build their armies when she knows for a fact that many just wish to lead peaceful existences. Nor can she abide their plans to respectively turn everything into nothing or turn the entire world into their personal undead kingdom. Given Ai's power to grant true death would make dead bodies impervious to Nekron and Nagash's manipulations, the two think this otherwise insignificant little girl does pose a threat to their goals, so it's a priority to have her assassinated.
  • At the very least, an "ally" (which is a very loose term in this case) of Nekron that doesn't go along with the idea of getting rid of Ai is Dhuum, because as an obsessive hunter of those who have cheated death, he approves of Ai being capable of granting true death, so he has an interest in protecting her. Ai by her turn doesn't like his merciless nature at all and avoids him as much as she can.
  • In her time in the Pantheon, she has become aware that there are quite a few beings that go by the name of God. She has some suspicions that Chuck Shurley is the god who created and abandoned her world, given he has been similarly flaky towards the world he is confirmed to come from. Which speaking of, she proved to get along very well with Sam and Dean Winchester, identifying with them as they also travel the world in order to fulfill a mission and have had their lives plagued by tragedy such as losing a parent. Of course, Sam and Dean have gone through a lot more than Ai, but then again Ai is far younger than them, and when you live in a world like hers, it's only a matter of time... Sam and Dean at least feel inspired to protect Ai like a little sister and try to ensure she doesn't become traumatized too quickly (especially now that she's in a place as crazy as the Pantheon).
  • Ai once met a girl about her age who seemed to be carrying an unusually large egg around. She got curious about what the egg was supposed to be and why the girl was carrying it, but the girl only gave her very sparse and mysterious answers. Ai wasn't deterred and spent that day with the girl helping her, filling up the silence with her chatter, which the girl didn't seem to mind. They ended up spending the night at the girl's temple, and once the girl fell asleep, Ai met a young man carrying a cross, who she had noticed earlier in the day following them around and who somewhat reminded her of her father. They talked a bit, and while it was a bit hard to follow for Ai, she could surmise that the two also came from a ravaged world that had been abandoned by God. The nature of the egg still eluded her, but that was fine, because it was obviously something important to the girl and Ai was happy to have helped. Though it puzzled Ai why the man kept himself out of the girl's sight, to which he admitted that he purposefully broke her precious egg in the past. This gave Ai pause, but it didn't last long as she smiled and told the man to keep protecting the girl. From that day on, Ai visits the two regularly.
  • Met Death's favorite chess opponent Antonius Block while visiting the former one day. As one might imagine, Ai was surprised that a regular human like Antonius was so at ease in the presence of an embodiment of death. They started talking about themselves and Ai learned about how Antonius' world went through a crisis of its own that at least resembled the end times, due to a black plague epidemic, and how Antonius traveled through the land on a spiritual search for God, which Ai realized was pretty similar to her own adventures. They wound up becoming pretty good friends, with Antonius reminding Ai of Julie. She has also found in him someone willing to teach her about chess.
  • Met the Shovel Knight when he suddenly appeared to her out of nowhere and demanded an honorable duel with her, having noticed the impressive-looking shovel strapped to her back. A panicked Ai managed to explain that she really wasn't a fighter at all before any fighting started and explained what her shovel's purpose was. Shovel Knight was somewhat disappointed, but not for too long as he got the idea to take Ai under his wing and train her in the art of wielding a shovel so she can deal with the many dangers of the Pantheon. Ai isn't really sure that's a good idea, but at least she can see Shovel Knight has good intentions and humors him. She remains rather on the clumsy side as of yet, but that doesn't seem to deter Shovel Knight as he enthusiastically works her to the bone in their training sessions.

    The Capsuleer 
The Capsuleers, Gods of Resurrective Immortality
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pryce_caesar.jpg
An example of a Capsuleer pilot
  • Lesser God (individually), Overdeity (collectively)
  • Symbol: The Capsuleer Pod (individual symbols vary depending on Corp or Alliance)
  • Theme Song: "Below the Asteroids"
  • Alignment: Blue-and-Orange Morality (each Capsuleer has their own individual motives, and they can fall on any end of the Alignment).
  • Portfolio: Resurrective Immortality, Merchants, Salesman and Business Owners, Asteroid Miners, "The Enemies of the Gods", Inventors, Ship Builders, and Arms Dealers, Extreme Learning Curves, One-Man Army, Sociopathic Hero, Weapon of Mass Destruction, Wide Open Sandbox, Cool Starship, Galactic Superpower, Our Wormholes Are Different
  • Domain: Space Combat, Exploration, Industry, Merchants
  • Allies: House of Commerce
  • Enemies: Abbadon the Despoiler, The Borg Queen, Sheev Palpatine
  • Respect: Montgomery Scott
  • Respected by: Khorne
  • Opposed by: James T. Kirk
  • Associates: (Insert Name Here)
  • The Capsuleer's home in the Pantheon is on the station that was built for them, on the grounds that it would be used by all Capsuleers, not just one alliance or Corps. CONCORD is responsible for enforcing this action, having declared Pantheon skies High-Sec. As a result, unless any Capsuleers actively sign on for either side, they are prohibited from engaging in combat.
  • Palpatine has schemed to abduct a Capsuleer's body for himself and re-engineer, attaining the immortality he so desired for himself. The Capsuleers responded by parking a flight of Titans with a support fleet within warp range of the Death Star.
  • Khorne loves them.The Bloodbath of B-R5RB is one of his most beloved battles of all time, and all over an unpaid sovereignty bill. He commonly arranges for the Alliances to go to war with one another, and has even set Abbadon the Despoiler upon them on numerous occasions, and enjoys every minute of it. Because they keep on coming back from death, and keep coming back for more, it makes it all the more enjoyable and profitable for the Blood God.
  • They hold a lot of respect for Montgomery Scott, if only because they seek to learn his secrets for jury rigging ships so they can apply them to their own fleets. On the other hand, Kirk and the other Federation captains see Capsuleers as the antithesis of what the Federation embodies.
  • The Capsuleers often hire themselves out to different sides in the Pantheonic Wars, depending on the morality of the Capsuleers and the corporations or Alliances they are part of. This has often resulted in one side hiring one alliance that is the enemy of another Capsuleer alliance in battle.
    • This often results in the Capsuleers butting heads with various other space empires, including the Galactic Empire.
  • They hate the Borg as much as they love to salvage their wrecks for materials to sell on the open market (they aren't permitted to bring anything back to their home universe). They remind Capsuleers of Sansha's Nation, a state governed through use of slave implants by Sansha Kuvakei, which they have spent years fighting against. Capsuleers shoot first and ask no questions if they encounter the Borg on the battlefield.
  • Capsuleers engage themselves in a wide range activities, from active warfare to manipulating markets for their benefit, exploration of lost ruins, abandoned sites and wormholes, mining asteroids and space ice, planetary and lunar resources (they've been advised to not try to mine the Moon), and running missions on behalf of individual parties in the Pantheon. Since they route all of the materials they procure (ill-gotten or fairly found) through the House of Commerce, business has boomed since their arrival.
    • No matter how many times Capsuleers are killed, their consciousness always returns to a backup clone installed in a station in their home universe. Some suspect that the Capsuleers are in fact related to (Insert Name Here).

    Czeslaw Meyer 
Czeslaw Meyer, God of The Agony of Immortality
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/meyer_7.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Strawberry Ice Pop
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Immortality Hurts, 200+ Year Old Child, Creepy Child, Crazy Survivalist, Tragic Backstory From Horrific Torture, Cynicism Catalyst, Enfant Terrible (at first), Power of Trust, Happily Adopted
  • Domains: Pain, Immortality, Alchemy, Survival, Adoption
  • Allies: Isaac Dian and Miria Harvent, Arya Stark, Kenny McCormick, Shulk, Sakura Matou, The Heroic Protectors of Family, N, Nanako Dojima, Fujiwara no Mokou, Remilia Scarlet, Crona, SCP-1440
  • Enemies: Claire Stanfield, Ladd Russo, Asbrudael Vect, Freddy Krueger, Dickson, The Child Abuse Supporters, Alex Wesker, AM, SCP-542
  • Opposes: Immortals in any form asides from his allies
  • Czeslaw Meyer comes from a line of talented alchemists, starting from as far back as his grandfather. One of the passengers aboard the Avena Avis during 1711, and as such one of the immortals thanks to the Grand Panacea. Unfortunately he had Fermet, an absolute sadist, as his guardian who proceeded to torture him to test their immortality but in reality for kicks. This agony would change him into someone unable to trust others and a Creepy Child...at least until he was finally given some love.
  • Managed to find friendship thanks to Isaac and Miria rescuing him from the Flying Pussyfoot Massacre. They were overjoyed to see him again in the Trope Pantheon, and Czeslaw hopes to see Firo and Ennis in future. Conversly he's terrified to learn both Ladd Russo and Claire Stanfield were in the pantheon.
  • Possesses immortality so complete he can survive on a molecular level, and seems only killable by another immortal absorbing him. As such, he is fearful of every single immortal in the Trope Pantheon. He's been told that they don't have that kind of power, but he doesn't want to take his chances. Freaked out upon learning about Cell and his syringe-like tail.
  • An alchemist by trade, specifying in explosives. His signature is the Strawberry Ice Pop, which Jacuzzi's gang used when raiding the Flying Pussyfoot. While screwing him up mentally, all the tortures seem to have given him an extremely fast Healing Factor and high tolerance for pain. Still doesn't stop some utterly messed up gods like Asbrudael Vect to see how far that pain threshold can go.
  • Initially a ruthless Enfant Terrible, though given the utter Hell he went through it's quite understandable. Even then he wouldn't betray a child. Following his Heel–Face Turn he's very accepting at kids who go through utter crap like Arya Stark and Sakura Matou. He is proud of the latter for getting revenge. Arya Stark meanwhile took one look at what Fermet did to him and went "and I thought my life sucked" before giving him a huge hug.
  • Him and Kenny are great friends, having to learn the hard way that dying hurts. Czeslaw is trying to help him avoid his various deaths. There's sympathy towards fellow immortal Fujiwara no Mokou due to their similar tropes(Immortality Hurts and Immortal Life Is Cheap), and is working to finally remove her Complete Immortality that she desperately wants rid of-despite his fear of other immortals, there's no bad blood whatsoever between them. Friendly to Remilia Scarlet because of their shared Immortal Immaturity.
  • Because of what he went through and the new friends that he has, he's very supportive to the Heroic Protectors of Family and condemns the Child Abuse Supporters. Especially hates those like Dickson who've committed Parental Betrayal due to his experience with Fermet, and as such supports Shulk.
  • Claims to the House of Slaughter that he has gone through so much shit that they can't put him in more pain than he's already gone through with. The Dark Eldar laugh at this, considering Fermet's tortures to be child's play. AM is interested in inflicting ungodly tortures and show the boy what it means to regret immortality, refusing to abandon the notion that anyone can be further broken.
  • Seen in the Children sub-house, and is capable of acting like a kid. He's been a senior citizen for over 150 years though, however given he can't grow any older and what's he been through tends to act his apparent age. Compassionate gods there are trying to help him regain his lost childhood.
  • He sounds like Falcom and fellow adorable kid Nanako Dojima, whom he gets along with. Has wondered if he should use Falcom's time travelling to try and undo what happened to him, but avoids it because of the Temporal Paradox involved. In English he sounds like Crona, who gets along with him due to what they went through.
    • And friendship with Nanako Dojima meant friendship with the Cutie Mark Crusaders which lead to friendship with the Crusaders' dear vampire wrestling friends. Unlike Nanako, who was doted on just as the Crusaders were, Czeslaw screamed in terror upon learning that one of Gangrel's trademarks was sending wrestlers into a Blood Bath as it reminded the boy of what happened with Claire Stanfield (not helping that Gangrel and Luna Vachon are allies with Claire). He now dreads the time the Crusaders decide to bring him for play dates.

Hob Gadling, God of Enjoying Immortality (Robert, Bobby, not the Wandering Jew)

  • Pities: Those who sincerely regret immortality like SCP-1440 and Fujiwara no Mokou, Chiron and Scathach
  • Avoided by: The House of Vampires
  • Hob Gadling was a 14th century man with an interesting outlook on death. He believed people only die because everyone else does, and it's a bad habit. While talking about this in a tavern in the 1380s, Dream overhead and was bemused. Death of the Endless decided to validate his beliefs with Complete Immortality, and he and Dream meet at that tavern once every hundred years. He can ask Death to end his immortality and life whenever he wants, but 600 years later and he still doesn't want to.
  • The tavern has it that the Wandering Jew and the Devil visits once every century. Dream is no devil, and Hob Gadling isn't Jewish. AZ fits that trope better. While he initially regretted his immortality and the shame of his past actions, the former king of Kalos has become more optimistic with his Floette returning. The two are seen conversing over their long life and experiences.
  • Very optimistic in the matter of immortality. He's been starved, outlived his children and ended up losing the one constant in Dream, but still thinks life is worth living. When informed of the Death Is Cheap nature of the pantheon, Gadling was interested in the idea of fellow immortals. Still, even after the pantheon is gone and everyone he knows, he will likely still want to keep living.
  • Death of the Endless is the only one who can kill him, and only if he wishes. Dhuum was completely enraged that he hasn't died yet and is trying in vain to end him. Not that Gadling particularly fears death, he just doesn't feel like dying. Grim was initially annoyed and worried he might encourage more people to not die, but they soon patched up their differences over a pint as it's not like Hob flaunts his immortality. In some ways, he is the everyman immortal(if that makes any sense).
  • Nekron hates how he's completely beyond his reach. He tried to send Black Lantern versions of those he's know at him, and while getting his heart ripped out hurt they couldn't drive him to suicide. When he tried to discourage him by saying he'll one day be alone in a dead universe, Hob Gadling merely responded "it'll be lonely, but there'll still be a lot to explore". When AM swore to make him suffer a Fate Worse than Death to prove a point, Hob responded "I may be immobilized, but give enough time I will outlive you. Or better yet, find a way to outsmart you and free those you have prisoner. We'll see who cracks first, you crazy son of a bitch".
  • The Death of Regular Show tried to coax Hob Gadling into a bet. He wins the arm wrestling match, he takes Gadling's soul. Gadling wins, he gets his best pair of sunglasses. Gadling agreed and ended up losing. It seemed like Death had finally won, but before he could take his soul Death of the Endless pointed out he didn't have the authority to break the deal and it was an empty victory. The Regular Show Death left complaining Hob Gadling had cheated. When asked why, Hob said "I knew I wasn't in any real danger, I just wanted a chance at those shades. Also, it seemed like it'd be funny to tweak a reaper.
  • He is a man of whatever time he lives in. Some of which ages poorly, like human trafficking and slavery. While he wasn't shameful about it then, over the centuries he considers it a blot on his record and never wants to get involved in it again. Perhaps this is why he has such contempt for the Slavers, Calvin Candie and Stephen, who are trying to preserve the institution of slavery.
  • Voldemort's ego refuses to let him believe any other being but himself should have immortality. The fact that Hob Gadling, a mere Muggle, did so set him off. As far as Gadling's concerned, Voldemort's attempt at exercising most of his soul to only half-achieve immortality is a pathetically craven attempt to not die, and he has no sympathy for his hellish fate in Limbo due to the murder and horrid ritual done to achieve it.
  • Regards Dr Weil as despicable. He was given a century to think over his actions and all of eternity to try and improve his condition, but instead he became even more psychopathic. Doesn't care much for Vandal Savage, pointing out that while he hasn't exactly achieved enlightenment, Vandal has remained at heart the same barbaric caveman he was at the start of his life despite being over eighty times older than him.
  • Had apparently known William Shakespeare. Given his lengthy experiences in life, Hob Gadling is often seen conversing with the Doctor and Jack Harkness about what it's been like to live for so long, and is most amused by how the very much mortal Forrest Gump has impacted history. He and Peter Pan share a love of life as well. Gadling seems to pity those who don't like their immortality and wants to improve their lot, like showing Czeslaw Meyer the wonders of the world instead of the pain he suffered under Fermet, and try to get the three Deaths to stop tormenting SCP-1440.
  • Feels bad for Chiron because in the Holy Grail War, his one wish in the Holy Grail is to regain his immortality, something he didn't achieve as he was killed by Achilles. And there's Scathach who hates her immortality because living in centuries means she won't have any students left to train under her. Hob wants to try and cheer her up about that.
  • Vampires don't care to nosh on him, almost certainly a consequence of his immortality. It's likely he can't be vampirized or made a zombie in any way either.
