Pantheon / GUAE Mecha Cohort

Go To

Created by Char Aznable in response to the growing power of the GUAG Robot War Division, the evil gods herein are better represented by their prowess within a giant Mecha, some of which even go as far as to boast it as "a titanic piece of armour". Unlike their Robot War counterpart, more often than not these evil gods also went so far as to create their own mecha armies, enhancing their already formidable prowess. So far the GUAG pilots have proven more than a match for them, but it is in the firm belief of the Mecha Cohort that one day, surely, their number will turn the tide in their favour...

There are complaints that this division is understaffed, with a lack of ascended pilots to man head positions. Melkor is attempting to rectify this problem by having more of them ascend. For now, he has to settle for those from other alliances, hence Rau Le Creuset of the Grand United Alliance of Destruction being here. To add to those problems, this division is currently in civil war between Char and Gihren Zabi for custody of the Zeon forces, with Gihren leading OYW forces plus Rau Le Creuset, and Char everyone else.

Their headquarters lies in space, at least several thousand miles up from the Conquest Force's headquarters, in the shape of Zeon's most well-known fortress, A Baoa Qu. They have as of yet undisclosed connections with corrupt staff of Anaheim Electronics' Pantheon branch.

Each god here has their own cadre of subordinate non-ascended pilots. The house is currently headed by Char Aznable, with Gihren Zabi as a vice commander in the Conquest Force. Muruta Azrael and Lord Djibril also serve as liaisons to this division from SHOCKER. Given that they both hate Coordinators, Rau Le Creuset's presence here is causing some tensions.

The Decepticons have been moved here too following complaints about lack of staff.

Supreme Commander

    Char Aznable 
Casval Rem Deikun, God of Chromatic Superiority (The Red Comet, Édouard Mass, Char Aznable, Quattro Bajeena, Grand Admiral Char/Char dai-taishō (GUAE rank)formerly , a CHAR, Blue-Eyed Casval, Ped Comet, Char "Ago"nable/Agoi Suisei, "Chin Comet", Service number: PM0571977243S)
Char in U.C. 0079

  • Intermediate God (has Greater God authority), Demigod without a mobile suit
  • Symbol: The Newborn Neo Zeon crest, his personal emblems, or any one of his mobile suitsnote 
  • Alignment: True Neutral overall with shades of other alignments depending on what phase he's in (Neutral Evil during the One Year War, Chaotic Good during the Gryps War as Quattro Bajeena, and Lawful Evil during the Second Neo Zeon War)
  • Rank: Grand Admiral (O-11)
  • Flagship: Rewloola
  • Subordinates: Lieutenant Junior Grade Lalah Sune (his First Love), Lieutenant Commander Nanai Miguel (aide-de-camp), Ensign Gyunei Guss, Lieutenant Junior Grade Rezin Schnyder, Ensign Quess Paraya (Rewloola pilots), Chief Petty Officer Denim, Sergeant Ash, Corporal Slender (Falmel pilots), Lieutenant Dren (Falmel captain), Rear Admiral Full Frontal (spiritual clone and squadron commander), Lieutenant Angelo Sauper, Captain Hill Dawson (Rewloola captain), Commander Lyle (Rewloola XO, former captain), Kaises M. Buyer, Horst Harness (civilian aides)
  • Reason for Joining: Convinced that he was needed by the GUAE thanks to Johan Liebert's persuasion, he joined them thinking that the GUAG is too weak to do what must be done to protect the Gundam multiverse.
  • Loyalty to Melkor: Low. With his high position in the GUAE, Char knows how much of a Complete Monster Melkor truly is and his personal plans for the Omniverse at large. However, with the GUAE's reach and their access to other universes, Char has no choice but to remain by the dark lord's side if he wants to spread his father's ideology. That said, he's not above a whole lot of subterfuge, especially with worse mecha villains like Perfectio and Ex- joining up. The only thing Char is truly loyal to himself and his father's ideology.
  • Threat Level: Very High. A combination of charisma, Ace Pilot skills and Popularity Power have made Char a force to be reckoned with. Even if he's not as strong as Amuro or Kamille, Char is still among the most powerful and feared mecha pilots in the Pantheon period, cleverly using debris and terrain to increase the speed of any mecha he pilots. Add to that the specially-tuned Nightingale he pilots and you might as well give up completely.
  • Main Unit: MSN-04SII Nightingale, MSN-04 Sazabi (in reserves)
  • Position: Mid-Range Newtype MS Pilot, Commander of the GUAE Mecha Cohort

Faction Leaders

Megatron, God of Arm Cannons (NBE-01, Emperor Of Destruction, The Slag-Maker, Galvatron, D-16, Megatronus)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Either the Decepticon insignia (either G1 or G2), or the Predacon insignia
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Reason for joining: To destroy Optimus Prime and the Autobots once and for all even if it means having to work alongside organics. (He can always kill the fleshlings later.)
  • Loyalty to Melkor: Unicron called in a few favors. He has no actual loyalty to Melkor. Or even Unicron for that matter.
  • Threat level: High. The Decepticons are an army that can basically operate under people's noses, and he's a very dangerous foe by himself.
  • Holds the rank of Field Marshal.


Char's Faction

    Haman Karn 
Haman Karn, Goddess of Glorious Leaders
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: The Axis Zeon Crest.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Rank: Admiral (O-10)
  • Reason for joining: To rule the UC Gundam metaverse alongside Char.
  • Loyalty to Melkor: So far, she's maintained her loyalty towards Char, so she's on board for now.
  • Subordinates: Unascended Neo Zeon and Axis Zeon pilots (minus the Sleeves and CCA-era Zeons, they are under Char)
  • Main Unit: AMX-004 Qubeley

    Anavel Gato 
Anavel Gato, God of Stealing Military Prototypes and Master of the Pre-Mortem One-Liner (The Nightmare of Solomon, Commander Anavel Gato/Gato-chūsa (GUAE rank)formerly )
  • Lesser God, Demigod without a mobile suit, borderline Intermediate with the Physalis
  • Symbol: The Principality of Zeon emblem; alternatively the Gundam GP02A "Physalis"
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Rank: Commander (O-5)
  • Reason for Joining: He's quite loyal to Char, but more so to the ideals of Zeonism (notwithstanding the fact that his idea thereof is way different from that of Char's late father.)
  • Loyalty to Melkor: Same with Haman.
  • Threat to Cosmos: Moderate to High. So far, he was the only person ever to hijack a mech from the GUAG Robot War Division, escape without a scratch, AND successfully use the stolen unit for his plans.
  • Subordinates: All Delaz Fleet pilots
  • Main Unit: RX-78-2GP02A Gundam "Physalis" (Switches on occasion to the AMX-002 Neue Ziel)

Gihren's Faction

    Rau Le Creuset 
Rau Le Creuset, God of Endless War as Mankind's Nature ( Al Da Flaga II)

Ex, God of Meta Mechas (The Embodiment of Despair, Ex-, EX-, EXA-666, Extreme Gundam)
  • Intermediate God normally, varying power levels depending on which pack is used.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Rank: Captain (O-6)
  • Reason for joining: It's simply a means to an end.
  • Loyalty to Melkor: Very low. He wants everyone to be overcome by despair. He will turn on Melkor as soon as everyone else is in his ideal world.
  • Threat Level: EXTREME. He has a total of five forms of his mobile suit: his normal, "base" form, a close-combat based lightning-using sword pack, an ice-based remote control pack that uses weaponry similar to funnels as well as Roboteching energy balls, a long-ranged, fire bullet/missile/laser shooting pack, and a centaur pack with the ability to use the Moonlight Butterfly. Yes, a machine has access to the most powerful weapon in all of the Gundam multiverse. A machine that has long forgotten the meaning of mercy.note 
  • Main Unit: The Extreme Gundam (He uses a certain pack depending on which situation it's in)

Gauron, God of Psychotic Mercenaries
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Arm Slave Arbalest
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Rank: Lieutenant Colonel (O-5)
  • Reason for joining: For the Evulz.
  • Loyalty to Melkor: Only loyal until he finds out where Sousuke Sagara is hiding.
  • Main Unit: Venom (Gauron Custom)

    Ali al-Saachez 
Ali Al-Saachez, God of Villainy Just For The Heck Of It (Gary Biaggi, Prince Ali)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Gundam Arche
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Rank: 1st Lieutenant
  • Reason for joining: For the Evulz.
  • Loyalty to Melkor: As long as he pays well, and there's going to be lots of war and killing, Ali's on board.
  • Threat to Cosmos: Moderate. Mind games and mech piloting skills are dangerous tools in the hands of a sociopath. Elevates only to high when he does get to do a LOT of killing.
  • Subordinates: Unascended 00 pilots from the A-Laws
  • Main Unit: GNW-20000 Arche Gundam

Megatron's Faction

Starscream, God of Betrayal
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A crowned figure stabbed in the back
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Rank: Colonel (O-6)
  • Reason for joining: Was promised (in secret) that once the war is won, he would become supreme ruler of the Transformers multiverse. (Would probably have joined anyway so he could be ready to take over when the opportunity arose.)
  • Loyalty to Melkor: Waiting for a chance to stab Melkor in the back and rule all evil everywhere, same as anybody else. He's just a lot more vocal about it.
  • Threat level: Medium. He'd be much more effective and threatening if he turned his efforts entirely at one target, rather than spreading them between attacking his enemies and backstabbing his superiors.

    Hustler One 
Hustler One, Deity of Very Hard Boss Battles (Nine-ball, Lana Nielsen, Nineball Seraph)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A shot of Nine-Ball Seraph focused on its emblem.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Reason for joining: "For the sole purpose of recreating the world and humankind with it."
  • Loyalty to Melkor: Little to none. "Those who wield too much power...those who only bring chaos...they are simply not part of the program."
  • Threat Level: Very High with its canon resources. Nineball Seraph is known for fighting like a NEXT well before the technology for those mechs was invented, it's already fought against members of the GUAG Robot War Division, and its true nature as an AI means that even destroying its AC is not enough to take it out of action. It's also known for siccing Unmanned Suicide Weapons in unending quantities on enemies who annoy it enough, and if the rumors are true and Hustler One is the mastermind behind the Pulverizers, then that's a whole 'nother problem. Goes up to EXTREME if allowed to bring its followers, as pretty much every Pantheon member originating from a Video Game has had trouble with (if not been laid low by) one of them. Fighting them all at once would be a horror show.
  • Main Unit: The Nine-ball from Master of Arena. Breaks out Nine-ball Seraph when things are serious.
