Pantheon / Healers

Go To

One of the most comfortable areas in the Health and Diseases house is the sub-house of Healers. While not licensed physicians, the gods here are often sort out to cure any number of ailments. It's less professional than Physicians however, and seems to be more popular with the child deities. Franken Fran's presence does put some people off, but that's usually remedied by just not visiting her or her helping out the physicians.

They have a shared garden where medicinal herbs are grown, and a makeshift chemical lab to develop antibiotics. There are reports of members of the House of Crime using this chemical lab to make drugs.

Lesser Gods

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ana_70.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The eye of Horus and her biotic rifle
  • Theme Songs: "Old Soldiers" when she appears with Jack Morrison, "Legacy" otherwise
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Was more Lawful Good back in her younger days)
  • Portfolio: Action Mom, Alliterative Name, Badass Longcoat, Blue Is Heroic, The Chick, Friendly Sniper, Cool Old Lady, Deadpan Snarker, Combat Medic, Lost her eye to Widowmaker, Eyepatch of Power, Faking the Dead, Knight in Sour Armor, Mama Bear, Parents as People, Shell-Shocked Veteran

  • Ana Amari was one of the founding members of Overwatch and also one of the most loved ones. Through all her career, Ana was known as one of the best snipers in the world, having succeeded in a number of important missions. Until one day she was presumed dead after a mission when Widowmaker shot her in the eye. But that wasn't the case, Ana instead went to hiding, since the stress of killing so many people had gotten to her and she preferred to leave all her friends and moments behind. And now, she is ready to return to the battlefield once more, but this time she is going to protect the one she loves the most.
  • Her biotic rifle was once intended by Mercy to only heal, but thanks to a reverse engineering by Torbjörn, Ana's rifle now is able to both harm enemies and heal her allies. Mercy is not happy that Ana has modified her weapon, but nonetheless is happy that she's now here. Though sometimes they argue on who gets to support Pharah more, much to Pharah's embarrassment.
  • Shortly after ascending, Ana was welcomed with open arms by every one of her old friends from back in Overwatch times. However, her happiness was short-lived when Reaper decided to show up. Both Ana and him have quite a history that they really don't want to talk about.
  • There has been ongoing speculation about who could possibly be Fareeha's father. Ana herself hasn't said anything on the matter, but other sources might point that this person is very important.
  • At 60 years old, Ana's is one of the oldest snipers among the ranks of the pantheon and is quite respected by the more younger generations. Her aim isn't as good as how it used to be back in her prime, but she is still is a very good shot and has caught quite a lot people off guard.
    • That said, the presence of Widowmaker doesn't amuse her at all, given how she is responsible for shooting out Ana's eye out and eventually forcing her into hiding. It's clear that Widowmaker likes to remind of Ana's fall of grace, but Ana simply doesn't take her attacks all that seriously.
    Widowmaker: You were once a legend, but what are you now? Just a shell of a woman.
    • Not that she never returned fire either. Ana was one of those people that could incite Widowmaker's actual anger, by lamenting that her friend Gerard Lacroix married someone Ana thought to be turning out to be a bitch.
  • Thanks to her egyptian heritage, Ana got to personally meet the ancient gods of the egyptian pantheon. Most deities, especially Ra and Osiris, welcomed her assuming she was a follower of Horus, given the tatoo she has under her left eye being the Eye of Horus.
  • Seems to get along a lot with Iroh, due to former military leaders who are also very capable fighters for their age. And Ana loves to drink tea, so she also a frequent visitor of his tea shop.
  • Has noticed that there are a couple of deities that happen to sound like her in certain cases. For example, one of thoses is Integra Hellsing, another white-haired, dark-skinned woman with an eyepatch who belongs to an organization that fights for the world's safety.
  • There were tales of an alchemist who was part of a group of heroes tasked by a lord to defend his castle from the Mad Scientist Dr. Junkenstein and his minions. Ana can't quite recall those events, but she stated that she has no idea how alchemy works.
  • Being a mother, Ana is quite known for being protective of the younger members of the pantheon, especially those from the House of Childhood and Adolescence. That would explain why she doesn't want her daughter Fareeha to join Overwatch, even though she is already an adult.
  • Once upon a time, people visited Ana because they were severely annoyed at that certain "HO HO HA HA" Sniper. Ana responded by administering a sleeping dart mid laughter on him. Written on that dart: "Go the Fuck to Sleep".
  • In recent times, Ana has been summoned into the Nexus. She has befriended other Blizzard deities there and still showed her combat prowess even at her age.
  • "Never stop fighting for what you believe in"
  • Can also be found in the House of Other Weapon Tropes, usually testing her marksmanship.
  • Roland of the Crimson Raiders once tried to contest her title, claiming he would make a better God of Healing Weaponry since any gun can heal when wielded by him. The Court of the Gods denied his claim, but neglected to give a reason. Rumours that they had been bribed with "grandma candy" circulated for a while.

  • Domain: Love, Healing, Filming, High School

  • Pity: Heinz Windermere
  • Avoid: Dr. Dala
  • Intimate Healing is a very complicated trope, subject to a lot of misrepresentation. The Pantheon's higher-ups decreed that for that trope to be accepted, it would require two representatives to provide proper context: one that does the healing and one that gets healed. Fortunately, Kaito and Ichika were the perfect candidates and their story provided a good justification for the trope: as an alien from a super-advanced civilization, Ichika possessed technology that saved Kaito from the brink of death, as well as unknowingly giving him the ability to have vision induced from such tehnology. Their ascension was performed without much issue.
  • Their ascension was a major boon to the young lovers. In the mortal plane, Ichika was forced to leave Earth as The Federation prohibited contact with underdeveloped species. Fortunately, no such limitation existed in the Pantheon, allowing Kaito and Ichika to happily reunite. The House of Narrative questioned whether or not it was still too early for them to ascend, as their story had an open ending that offered the possibility of a continuation. Kaito and Ichika replied that while that possibility still existed, they were happy enough with their ascension. Whether or not their story continues, only time will tell.
  • Happy to learn the Pantheon was more lax about Interspecies Romance than their homeworld. As they were young and still had much to learn about relationships, they visited Superman and Lois Lane, whose love famously produced their herald Jonathan. Seeing much of themselves in Kaito and Ichika, Clark and Lois offer comfort and solace whenever the young lovers need it.
  • Surprised to learn there was already a Federation in the Pantheon, just not the Federation Ichika came from. Instead, it was a Federation formed from the best and brightest of humanity, such as James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Kathryn Janeway and Jonathan Archer. The four captains warmly welcomed the young lovers into their exploration missions, teaching them that in time, humanity would find a place in the stars. Understanding Kaito's desire to advance humanity into a spacefaring species, they have recommended him for Starfleet Academy.
  • Many non-human deities were baffled questioned Ichika about her culture, such as the fact that members of her species had human appearances and referred to themselves with human names. Ichika had kept mum on the matter.
  • Thanks to his love for filming and cameras, Kaito became good friends with Peter Parker and Yuu Haruna, often spending time with them filming documentaries about the happenings on the Pantheon. It's mostly for entertainment, but sometimes the House of School requests their help for educational purposes.
  • The best friends Kaito and Ichika have made in the Pantheon have been Ichiro Sato and Ryoko Sato, who realized they weren't all that different from each other, except for one tiny detail on Ichika's part. They enjoy going on double dates, which involve exploring exotic places, eating fancy meals, watching movies and playing video games. Kaito and Ichiro also met Shido Itsuka, protector of the Spirits, and Haruto Tsukishiro, explorer of dreams. While their own adventures don't hold a candle compared to what Shido and Haruto experienced, Kaito and Ichiro nevertheless gained trusted friends and steadfast allies in them. Their similar voices further strengthened their bond.
    • Ichika became friends with Shido's haremettes: Tohka, Origami and Mayuri. The Spirits were very sympathetic to Ichika's ordeal and offer advice in how to improve her relationship with Kaito. Ichika had also heard of Fuuka and how her destined death was averted because enough people in the mortal plane wanted her to have a happy ending. Perhaps something like that would allow her to continue her story with Kaito.
  • Kaito and Ichika's presence in the Pantheon unfortunately brought some unwanted attention. Harbinger, the Combine and Brainiac seek to obtain Ichika's technology and extend their conquests. Kaito and Ichika were further dismayed to learn of a galactic empire controlled by a cruel and monstrous human, Sheev Palpatine, who had no qualms of torturing them if it meant gaining an advantage over his enemies.
  • Agents K and J have been tasked to protect Kaito and Ichika from alien threats by their friend and fellow MIB member Lemon. The agents do not reveal Lemon's status to Kaito and Ichika, partly because of MIB protocols and partly because it would put them in more danger than they already are.
    • The SCP Foundation was worried that Ichika would be a matter of concern for world security and considered holding her for interrogation, but K and J ultimately convinced them that Ichika was harmless. This all happened without Kaito and Ichika's knowledge, further protecting the secrecy of both agencies.
  • Ichika was a bit of afraid of ghosts, particularly after a visit to a shrine, but her experiences with the Jedi, who could commune with the Force to manifest as ghosts in the realm of the living, helped her get the better of it.
  • Both admire Sheryl Nome for using her music to bring peace between humanity and the Vajra, seeing it as a sign that humans and aliens can live together as equals. Unfortunately, the case of Heinz Windermere was a bit greyer. While they understand the circumstances he was forced into, they cannot ignore the lives his actions destroyed.
  • Kaito and Ichika visited the House of Extraterrestrials, hoping to find other Federation members that had ascended as well; instead, they came across a representative of the Blorg Commonality, who was excited at the possibility of making friends with the young lovers. Although they were a bit weirded out by the Blorg's appearance, cooler heads prevailed and a friendship was born.
    Blorg: Friend?
    Kaito: Ummm... sure, we can be friends.
    Ichika: Yes; the more, the merrier.
  • Their interactions with Dr. Dala didn't go as smoothly, however. Dala, interested for a long time in the human form (specifically movement) tried to examine Ichika; her curiosity only increasing when she learned Ichika was an alien. Kaito and Ichika, having learned of Dala's actions thanks to Starfleet Intelligence, were disgusted and have kept away from her as much as possible. They have learned, however, that ultimately Dala has put her science to better use and the Pantheon has set precautions to ensure she doesn't fall back to old habits, a fitting rebalancing of the scales.
  • Also present in Romance.
