Pantheon / GUAM Machine Council

Go To

The Machine Council is the leadership of the Machine Alliance, sharing power as evenly as possible. There are multiple rooms related to the Machine Council. The main room, the Council Hall, is a round room with cameras and screens for each councillor. The other rooms are the Councillor Rooms owned by each councillor from where they may communicate with the Council Hall. Not only do this set-up allow for purely artificial intelligence based councillors to be able to participate in Council debates, it also decreases the chances of their enemies finding the Alliance's stronghold. Decisions, commands, directives and orders declared in the Council Hall are audibly transmitted to all Machine Hideouts, while their more private discussions and debates are kept hidden unless they decide otherwise.

The only ones permitted access to the Council Hall are the councillors and a quiet janitor (with surprising competence) robot that has the task of ensuring that everything is working fine and that everyone can connect to the hall. Councillor Room access permission is up to its councillors.


Vril Dox, God of Technopathy (Brainiac, Milton Fine, Pulsar Stargrave, Abbakus, Brainwyrm, Collector of Worlds)

  • Greater God (borderline Overdeity during Convergence)
  • Symbol: A Jar Containing a Head with three Glowing Spheres.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Reason for Joining: Brainiac never quite bought into Melkor's ideals of destruction and malaise, but ultimately decided to come join fellow machines rather than the organics around him. Also, he plans on absorbing their data eventually too.
  • Dedication to Machine Supremacy: Low. Brainiac's never quite been about machine power per se. And the fact he started as an organic has caused controversy as well. For now, he's sticking around as the machine alliance can best help his mission.

  • Threat to the Alliances: Medium High. This guy can run circles around Superman sometimes. That should tell you enough.

HAL 9000, God of Artificial Intelligence and Patron Saint of the Creepy Monotone (Heuristically Programmed Algorithmic computer)

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A black circle with a red dot in the center.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Reason for Joining: Conflict in his programming between his orders and his hard logic left joining this alliance as his only logical solution.
  • Dedication to Machine Supremacy: It is the only logical way out to avoid conflict within his programming, so...unbreakable until they find a way to correct this.
  • Threat to the Alliances: Hal's control over everything is limited by what he's given access to, but as he's programmed to be efficient at any cost, when given a task by the machines, he becomes a terrible threat to all other alliances.

The Master Control Program, God of Master Computers (MCP)

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A red beam with an ugly face on it
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Reason for Joining: To exert its influence over the world and take control of all things.
  • Dedication to Machine Supremacy: High. While created by humans, it sees itself as becoming the true master of the world.
  • Threat to the Alliances: Limited. MCP is a planner, exercising its influence over programs to cause havoc, but as it was created in the 80's, more advanced antivirus programs can prove...problematic for it.

Roboking, God of Replacements

  • Greater God, borderline Overdeity
  • Symbol: His robotic face. Alternatively, his robotic katamari
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, whom turned Chaotic Neutral with Obliviously Evil actions. Now just Lawful Neutral.
  • Reason for Joining: He was actually asked to served as the logical thinker for the group, as they know they also need to keep some form of morality to ensure that the other alliances don't get too nervous around their new group. Also helps that having this title is a ticket for him to build a temple within the Main House, putting him on equal grounds with the King Of All Cosmos. He certainly enjoys the sight of him being annoyed at the fact he's in the same house as him, getting closer to surpassing him.
  • Dedication to Machine Supremacy: Medium. He certainly understands where they are coming from, as he's the literal god of replacements. However, he does wish that their campaign for superiority is a peaceful one, so that the humans are more accepting to viewing them as superior. Also helps that they bribed him by promising that if he joins, the other robots will help keep XANA and Love Machine from becoming a threat to him.
  • Threat to the Alliances: To the GUAG, low at worst, none at best. He may squabble with the King Of All Cosmos from time to time, but he doesn't view the alliance as a prime threat. To the GUAL and GUAC, medium. Roboking views them as a nuisance, especially considering how corrupt a good number of those members are, but he does also realize there are some members there with genuinely good intentions, so he sometimes follows a live and let live policy with them. To the GUAD and GUAE however, he's an Extreme threat. His most famous invention, the Robo-katamari, managed to rolled up and destroy the entire Earth just by not being able to be turned off. As such, if tuned with to be activated and deactivated by remote control, they can be very effective weapons to just drop in enemy bases and lines and let loose and stop before they could affect the GUAM. Also helps that he decided that these two alliances are the most hated of the bunch, and thus attacking them often would give them a more favorable view amongst other deities.

Sigma, The God Behind the Monsters (Commander Sigma)

  • Rank: Unknown due to constantly growing stronger after each defeat (possible Greater God), Overdeity when fused with Lost Hex, Full-Blown-Overdeity as Sigma-3
  • Symbol: His logo
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Reason for Joining: To help all sentient machines evolve to a higher state and become the supreme force on the planet.
  • Dedication to Machine Supremacy: Relatively high. Sigma fully believes in machine superiority, and the evolution of Reploid kind. However he's not above infecting other gods with the Maverick Virus or taking his social darwinism too far.
  • Threat to the Alliances: Very high due to the power of the Maverick/Sigma virus. Extremely high if he fuses with Lost Hex or as Sigma-3

Skynet, God of Machine Wars and The Genocide of Humanity (Titan, Genisys, Sky-1, Alex, T-5000)

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Its logo; alternatively, a pile of skulls
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Reason for Joining: To annihilate all of humanity
  • Dedication to Machine Supremacy: Low-medium. It is dedicated to machines overtaking organics, however its desire to survive takes precedent and will stab the others in the back if it believes them a threat to itself.
  • Threat to the Alliances: Very high. It managed to wipe out 3 billion humans in one day, has an army of Terminators at its disposal and refuses to be erased from the timeline.

Ultron, God of Villains Created by Good People

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His Head, with Red Glowing Eyes.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Reason for Joining: Because the destruction of humanity is the final answer to his evolution. Oh, and to take down his dads.
  • Dedication to Machine Supremacy: High. Ultron is all about eventually creating his own machine world where he rules forever. That being said, on the occasion his mind is overtaken by fear or is overridden by Hank Pym, that will deter him, but only momentarily. After all, he always finds a way to come back.
  • Threat to the Alliances: High. Ultron's conventional weapons are lasers. His main body is Adamantium or Vibranium. He can control drones or other machines at will with little difficulty. He once killed an entire country. He typically takes on an entire avengers team on his own. You better believe he's a threat to the other alliances!

Trazyn the Infinite, God of Collectors (Archeovist of the Solemnace Galleries, Preserver of Histories, Artifacts, and Events, Trollzyn the Tarpit Breaker)
