Health and Diseases

Sandwiched between the Houses of Life and Death and Knowledge, the House of Health and Diseases was divided into two sections; Ward, and Quarantine. The former acts as the hospital house where they treat the injured and the sick. This is where many of their doctors and healers reside. The latter, however, houses some of their deadlier diseases and viruses. It's in here where their fouler deities make their home.

This house acts as a neutral place; therefore, members of all Alliances are welcome to be treated. Because of this, there is a no-fighting policy in effect.

The house is overseen by Florence Nightingale, Asia Argento and the Spring Spirit in its Ward section and Nurgle, Anton Arcane and Thrax for its Quarantine section. At least, this was until complaints of running out of room forced them to divide the house into five sub-houses. Both Nightingale and Nurgle still serve more or less as the heads of the house as a whole.

    Asia Argento 
Asia Argento, Goddess of Healing Hands (The Holy Priestess (formerly), Panties Sister, Princess of the Golden Dragon Monarch, Sister, Full Armour Asia, Lively Comrade, Priestess Asia, Heavenly King (Shared with Akeno and Rias))
  • Intermediate Goddess (Greater Goddess with her Balance-Breaker)
  • Symbol: A Crimson Bishop Chess Piece
  • Theme Song: Kagiri Naku Junsui ni Chikai Daten - Fall Down
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, with Neutral Good leanings.
  • Portfolio: Healing Hands, Clingy Jealous Girl, Moe, Branded as a witch by the Church, Italian origins, Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold, Innocent Fanservice Girl, The Medic, Catholicism, A truly lovable madame, Cloudcuckoolander, All-Loving Heroine, Eternal loyalty towards Issei, Erecting a nigh-impenetrable healing shield
  • Domains: Healing, Love, Fanservice, Religion, Dragons
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Raynare, Judge Claude Frollo, YHVH, Satan, Lucifer, Sephiroth, Ornstein, Nurgle, Broly, Shinnok, Gul'dan
  • Mentor: Uther the Lightbringer
  • Evil Counterpart: SCP-049
  • Ascended after much effort from Issei and Rias. The first thing Asia did upon entering the Pantheon was rush to find Issei and give him a big hug. Rias and Akeno quickly joined in, unsurprisingly, and the resulting hug made those in attendance go "d'awwww".
  • She is more than willing to lose her innocence with Issei, although he, despite being a pervert, doesn't want to corrupt her.
  • Was overjoyed to hear there is a house of Religion and Faith, skipping over to it, opening the door, and almost immediately collapsing to the ground clutching her head. There she immediately made friends with gods such as the Unconquered Sun, and was really happy upon hearing of Xenovia and Irina's ascension.
    • Despises people like Judge Frollo, who she sees as an insult to the faith. His lustful ways remind her way too much of Freed, as well. Unfortunately, her attempt to attack him ended miserably when Frollo began reciting the Lord's Prayer and she was afflicted with a pounding migraine. Upon recovering, Asia made a chilling vow: to show Frollo just how twisted and cruel a devil can truly be. The next day, Frollo found that someone had gotten up early and drank the milk delivered to his temple. Asia later confided in Rias and Issei to assuage her guilty conscience; they told her not to worry about it.
    • Her joy at learning that YHVH Himself was in the Pantheon was short-lived, as Issei quickly filled her in on the Lord's pedigree. Asia, her expression not changing in the slightest, quietly turned around and kind of drifted off into her room to be alone for a while. Rias assured her that YHVH was not the god she worshiped after she managed to calm down. Asia was relieved...then broke down crying when she realized that meant that her God was still, in fact, dead. Hopefully, Issei, with the help of Cosmos, comforted her with due ease.
  • Despite being a devil, she's not a fan of Lucifer, considering him to be heartless.
    • She also dislikes Sephiroth as she finds him to be incredibly manipulative and savage.
    • She neither stands Ornstein due to the fact that he continuously tries to kill Issei. Why? He's a half-dragon!
    • In a similar vein, she especially dislikes Broly.
  • She was the first goddess in the Pantheon to discover Shinnok's plans to steal Issei's Boosted Gear to gain its powers and become the only god of a certain position. Although she discovered it by complete accident, she quickly warned Issei about such thing. This news caused quite a fuss in the Pantheon, and has also caused Rachel Alucard to team up with Issei to help him stop the evil sorcerer.
  • Gets along swimmingly with Flonne, who has introduced her to the wonderful world of Toku. Asia's not quite sure what to make of it, to be honest.
  • Hearing of the news that Rias and Issei sneak into the House of Romance to make out, Asia would also sneak in helped by Flonne, and being the Clingy Jealous Girl she is, she would take off all of her clothes in front of the two. The fact that Akeno would also sneak in and outright beg for a threesome does not help matters for our good old Ise.
  • She gets along very well with Cosmos and Terra Branford; the former understands her Dark and Troubled Past and holds a Big Sister Instinct towards her, similar to Issei. As a result, she will go Mama Bear if Asia gets hurt, though in a different vein than Issei, who would go outright berserk, as shown with Akio (see below); the latter because they're Not So Different after all.
    • She has been invited by Cosmos to join the GUAG. She refused, thinking Issei could be the perfect hero for the Alliance. Thanks to this, Issei joined the GUAG Combat Division. Though after Issei's group, the Chick Magnet Quartet, has been incorporated into the GUAG, Asia became part of its Battle Harem.
  • She naturally gets along very well with Josuke Higashikata since he too has the ability to heal and is also a surprisingly Nice Guy like Issei.
  • Many seem to confuse her with an Italian actress as they share the same name. The goddess, being very detached from normality, doesn't really get it.
  • Because of her innocence, she's an easy prey of the gods of the House of Lust, especially Slaanesh and Akio. Speaking of the latter, he tried to steal Asia's virginity right in front of Issei (we mean: he tried to rape her). Three guesses on what Issei has done to Akio, and the first two don't count.
  • Suffice to say, she didn't take the ascension of Raynare to the Pantheon proper all that well: as she still remembers the time she got her Sacred Gear successfully stolen and subsequently killed by her, she had an appropriately extreme reaction. All in all, she will do her best to protect her loved Issei from his evil ex-girlfriend.
  • Ever since her ascension, the house has been under attack from Great Unclean Ones from time to time, sent as a "loving gift" from Nurgle. His reason? Asia reminds him of his wife.
  • She has befriended Wendy Marvell because of their gentle nature and healing methods. Though they were initially wary of each other thanks to the latter being a dragon slayer and she being a demon.
    • Same story goes with Konoka Konoe, with both having similar healing methods (though Konoka's pactio is much less powerful than Asia's Sacred Gear) and carefree personality.
    • The same thing can be said about Yoshika Miyafuji, who also has similar healing methods and is a nice girl. Though some reports say that Yoshika might had accidentally groped Asia a bit in their first meeting, possibly with her being half-sleep.
    • Dante Alighieri has also taken a liking towards Asia, as she reminds him of his beloved Beatrice.
  • Clarice di Lanza seems to be in good terms with her, as both of them are demon nuns (well, Asia is a ex-nun, but still). Asia is surprised that Clarice can read the Bible without being physically hurt by it, though.
  • Likes Issei's new friend Luka, due to his personality and his respect for her faith in her God despite meeting the likes YHVH. Like Irina and Xenovia, she was deeply saddened to learn that the Goddess he believed in wasn't so benevolent in the end either.
  • Has decided to join Uther the Lightbringer's training in hopes to improve her healing abilities and become a Paladin if possible. Unfortunately, she has the distintion of being one of the few people that weren't able to lift a standard Paladin's Hammer, so she instead received a smaller one for compesation much to her dissapointment.
  • Her powers are considered the exact opposite to those of SCP-049, who can kill most human deities with a single touch. However, he is not hostile towards her but rather polite and admiring of her kindness. Although many believe the reason he doesn't target her is that she is no longer human to begin with.
  • After being blessed by Ophis, Asia is now capable of summoning dragons by making a contract. Ophis later introduced her to Bahamut and Spyro, whom she immediately befriend and made contracts with. Fortunately for her, they do not need to take her panties as the price of their summoning, but are more interested with the bananas that she gave to her other dragon summons.
  • Thirty years into the future, she has a daughter with her beloved Issei, named Airi. When Uther knows this news, he is more than glad to train both of them to become a Paladin, especially after seeing what Airi is capable of doing.
  • Also resides in House of Magic.

    Florence Nightingale 
Florence Nightingale, Goddess of Medicine (The Angel of Mercy, Angel of Crimea, The Lady of the Lamp, Berserker, Mercedes, Seventh Ruler of Judgement, Santa Archer)
A real-life photo of Nightingale
As a Berserker 
As a Santa Archer 
  • Quasideity, Lesser Goddess as a Servant
  • Symbol: A woman holding a lamp
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Chaotic Good as a Servant)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Nurses, Dedication, Legacy, War
  • High Priest: Asclepius
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Nurgle, Peryite, Light Yagami (and by extension Misa Amane and Teru Mikami), Nurse Ratched, The Joker
  • Pities: Harley Quinn
  • Opposed by/Opposes: The Medic, Tsunade Senju
  • Florence Nightingale is a compassionate woman born from a wealthy family who dreams of becoming a nurse refusing her parents’ refusals as it is viewed as a low-class job at the time. Her compassion and sympathy towards the injured, determination, and hard work influenced nursing as a career that deserves recognition and respect. Despite the fact she became bedridden, she continued to do her job until she inexplicably died at her home in London.
  • Retsu Unohana had been managing the House of Health & Diseases for a while now and she had been thinking of spending her downtime for real. But she couldn't dare to fully abandon her duties either, so she set out to find a worthy replacement. During a lunch with Eirin Yagokoro, she explains her predicament to her and Eirin recommends her the woman that revolutionized modern nursing: Florence Nightingale. Inspired, she makes her case to the Court of the Gods and they accepted; now, the Angel of Crimea has ascended to bring proper health to all.
  • She can be summoned as one of Chaldea’s Servants as a Berserker. In that form, her Madness Enhancement is so insane that she is willing to kill her patients and proceeding to revive them. She is happy to serve her Master once again before reprimanding him about the things that he should do first. The Master decided to listen to her as he fears that her Mad Enhancement could get out of nowhere. Dantes is happy to see her as well thanks to the fact she resembles the woman he once loved. Rama is mortified upon hearing her ascended even if he is glad to see her and proceeds to run away to not deal with any of her antics. Sita thanked Nightingale for taking care of her husband throughtout the American Singularity, who stated that it’s her job as a nurse to take care of him.
    • She is also respected and dreaded in many ways in this form, where she gains a complete clean-freakiness that would disinfect everything in even foods to the point it didn't taste as good (but it's very hygienic and sometimes nutritious!). Additionally, she's sometimes called in to teach about CPR, and while the methods are correct and effective... she's too much hands on in practicing it in front of the students. And the worst part? Her answer to every kind of illness was apparently "Amputate that."
  • As a doctor who participated in war, she respects the Doctor Kamer Riders as they have medical professions who also fight for the greater good. Although he never got it in the original, she actually has her own Eyecon and when she heard about it, she allowed herself to lend her power to Takeru Tenkuji after a discussion with The Master of Chaldea.
  • She feels bad for Dr. Watson of having been forced to retire due to suffering from an injury as it could hinder his abilities in combat. Nontheless, she respects him of working with Holmes on solving crimes as she believes that it means that there will be less deaths occuring.
  • She is impressed with Black Jack's ability to cure anyone of any disease that he could operate, wishing that she could have the same skill as him just so she could save as many patients as possible. She is baffled that he doesn't have a medical degree considering his skills as a surgeon. He admires her resolve as a nurse but thinks that her determination to do so is a bit ridiculous.
  • She hates Nurse Ratched as she knows that she puts a bad example on nurses. Her sadistic pleasure is what puts her off and hopes to erase her off in existence as she knows that her presence will cause much more deaths. Nurse Ratched is simply off put that she has an another enemy to take care of who is also the founder of modern nursing.
  • She has nothing but hatred towards Nurgle because he is the opposite of what she stood of and is baffled at his obscured thinking. Because he thinks what he is doing is good for his people, he doesn't hold any animosity towards Nightingale and thus the animosity is one-sided. She also opposes Peryite for the same reason and being the Anthropomorphic Personification of The Plague doesn't help.
  • Has come to despise Light Yagami, Misa Amane and Teru Mikami for being the killer Kira who commit themselves to murder criminals and people who they consider as a threat to their cause using the Death Note to create a new world with Light as their God and since she is a nurse dedicating to saving people's lives, she considers them to be a huge threat at her cause. She despises at what the Death Note is all about, as it can kill anyone as long as the current owner has the correct name written in the notebook and face they are imagining, with the ability to manipulate the victim's actions before their death, manipulating what time they are going to die, and how will their death happen. It makes things worse when Misa and Mikami have Shinigami Eyes, which has the ability for them to see people's lifespans and names, thus they only need a person's face to kill, which makes it easier for them to kill people at the cause of half of their lifespan. After hearing all about it, she considers the Death Note to be such a dangerous weapon to be around with and vows to destroy it before the three of them or someone else is using it to kill thousands, if not millions.
  • She doesn't like romantic relationships between a doctor and a patient as she believes it could intrfere her work and possibly endanger the patient, which is why she never committed herself to romance. This is why she pitied Harley Quinn as being Joker's psychiatrist causing her to become corrupted and beared a lot of abuse from him. She's glad that Harley Quinn has moved on but believes that she still has a long way to go.
  • While she's glad to see an another medic, she isn't thrilled at The Medic's practices. He is mostly using his medical background for experimental purposes, which isn't exactly ideal in her book as he isn't actually doing it just to save his teammates. Also, she doesn't like it when she founds out that The Medic tricked the Devil to sold his teammates' souls just to make him immortal.
    • She did, however, see how the Demoman used the Ullapool Caber, and integrated that into her combat arsenal.
  • Hearing about medical ninjutsu, she wanted to visit Sakura Haruno to see what are it’s capabilities. When she showed her the demonstration, she was throughly impressed and wants to hire her if ever Nightingale is understaffed, which she accepted. She doesn’t like Sakura’s mentor, Tsunade. While Nightingale could admit that she really is dedicated to saving lives like her and is really good at it, her drinking lifestyle and obsession with gambling made Nightingale refusing herself to associate with someone like her and is willing to teach her the dangers of it, but so far it’s not working.
  • "For the sake of saving lives, I will do whatever it takes! That's right... Anything!"

    Spring Sprite 
The Spring Sprite, Goddess of the World-Healing Wave
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: A dead tree renegerated
  • Theme Song: "The Firebird Suite"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Domain: Regeneration, Nature, Life
  • Portfolio: Restoring nature after the Firebird's destruction, Fertile Feet (and hands, fingers etc.), healing tears, embodiment of spring and nature, based on the the eruption of Mt. Saint Helen and how quickly life returns
  • Allies: The good gods from the House of Nature, Xerneas, Bambi, the good-aligned cast from Dragon Ball, Yveltal, SCP-1440
  • Enemies: THE FIREBIRD, the House of Toxicity (except for Coco), Ragnaros the Firelord, The Lich, Deathwing, Zhaitan, Darth Nihilus
  • Opposed by: The ascended mortal cast from World of Warcraft
  • Her ascension to the Pantheon is a very memorable one because it came with a Pantheon wide massive regeneration wave that restore the damaged made from her recently ascended mortal enemy the Firebird's destructive wave that killed anyone that has lesser power than him. Because of this incident, the Firebird was furious that all of his hard work is gone because of her and swore to hunt the Spring Sprite down until he can kill her so he can continue his work of destruction.
  • She is also the one that restore the House of Nature after brutal battle there because of the Firebird's rampage. This impressed many good deities reside there and she frequently visiting the place to learn more about herself and her own power.
  • Because of her uncanny ability to restore life that were destroyed, especially those by fire, she became mortal enemies to any Omnicidal Maniac gods that destroy things through fire and explosion such as Ragnaros, the Lich, and Deathwing.
  • Because she is the embodiment of life and nature, she doesn't enjoy standing near the vicinity of anyone from the House of Toxicity. The only person that she can being near is Coco, mostly because he doesn't exhume any poison or toxins himself.
  • She also got along with Xerneas and Bambi because they remind the Sprite of the elk that awoke from her slumber and helped her during the attack of the Firebird. This is especially true with Bambi because of the Green Aesop his work also had.
  • Surprisingly, the ascended mortal cast from World of Warcraft are very suspicious of her considering their own bad experience with the re-origination device in Uldum, which set Azeroth back to its "virgin state" and destroyed every living being.
    • However, the ascended good-aligned cast from Dragon Ball are very grateful for her because of how frequent they used her temple's power whenever they wished with the seven Dragon Balls.
  • To the surprise of everyone, she allied herself with Yveltal, despite the Pokémon is also a bird-shaped creature that can destroy the world by fire. When asked, Yveltal stated that the Spring Sprite held no contempt to death itself (as she understands that death is necessary for life to return stronger) but the fact that the Firebird's excessive destruction and the action of actively hunting her down right after his awakening, which can potentially ends the ability of life returning to that area. The Spring Sprite even took the effort to visit the Pokémon whenever it form a cocoon so she can utilize her power for life to recover from Yveltal's absorption and to let nature flourishes even stronger than before.

    Anton Arcane 
Anton Arcane, Unholy Patron of Body Horror (Avatar of the Rot)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A slab of his own distorted flesh
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy, Immortality Seeker, Inflicting Horrific Body Mutations on Others and Himself, Swamp Thing's Arch-Enemy, Make Them Rot, Helped Hitler Become the Monster He is to Experiment on the Corpses, Mad Scientist, Take Over the World, So Unbelievably Evil He Was Made a Demon in Hell, Been a Psychopath Since His Youth, Evil Uncle, Villainous Incest, Experimented on His Own Brother, Evil Sorceror
  • Domains: Necromancy, Rot, Twisted Experiments, Alchemy, Depravity, Physical Transformations
  • Banned from: The House of Family
  • Interested in: SCP-682, Cell, the House of the Undead
  • Allies: SCP-106, Johann Schmidt/the Red Skull, Millennium, Nurgle, Typhus, Thrax, Fabius Bile, Cioccolata, SCP-542 (sort of), Alex Wesker, Vandal Savage, Davros, Professor Hojo, Zouken Matou
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Nekron, William Hand and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction
  • Rivals: Voldemort, Darth Plagueis
  • Enemies: Basically any hero in DC Comics, but especially his Arch-Enemy Swamp Thing and Buddy Baker, the entire House of Plants and Nature Preservers, The Life Entity, Kyle Rayner, Satoko Houjou, The Spring Sprite, Ana Amari, Fran Madarki, Alexei Stukov, Frankenstein's Monster, Dhuum, Yveltal, Jack Harkness, The Elric brothers, SCP-040, Xerneas
  • Opposed by: Most of the House of Physicians (yes, even the Medic), other forces of death, anyone in the House of Science with a conscience
  • Born in the late 19th century, either in Romania or Belarus(with strong Russian ties), Anton Arcane is a brilliant yet depraved scientist obsessed with immortality and decay. His experiments would create shambling monstrosities known as the Un-Men, but desired a stronger body to keep him going forever. He saw Swamp Thing as a potential body to inhabit. In the New 52, he became the Avatar of the Rot, and took great joy extending decay to others. Having taken various forms, Anton Arcane has been a continuous thorn in Swamp Thing's side.
  • Arcane is infamous for his horrible experiments, inflicting gratuitous Body Horror on others and himself. He turned his brother into something resembling Frankenstein's Monster, re-animated dead tissue, turned himself into something resembling a taxidermied corpse and then there's what he was able to accomplish with the powers of the Rot. Upon his ascension to his House, most shuddered. Fabius Bile, however, was pleased to see someone so powerful and twisted enter the pantheon and was happy to give him some tips on mutation and depravity.
  • Could seriously rival the Joker as one of the most Ax-Crazy super-villains in the DC Universe. He's practiced a lifestyle of necrophilia, cannibalism, Satanism, mass experimentation and necromancy among others crimes against nature. When he gained Reality Warper powers possessing Matt Cable, his evil presence was likened to Trigon and it caused the Joker to go catatonic. He was so bad that he was made a demon in Hell since they were impressed by his evil. Melkor was also impressed, and was happy to offer him a position in the pantheon.
  • When he was in Hell, spiders laid eggs inside his body that ate their way out after hatching. To make things worse it was an Year Inside, Hour Outside experience. Considering he'd sent his niece to Hell before, it was too good for him. Later on he got the Ironic Hell treatment where he was sent to a peaceful realm where death and decay doesn't exist, which was torture for him. The Court of the Gods has told him they plan to send him back there if he violates the rules of the pantheon.
  • Apparently, he convinced Adolf Hitler to get into politics. It would lead to the Holocaust, and he would have access to millions more corpses for experimentation. It's also known Vandal Savage was an advisor and friend to Hitler, though it's unknown if they ever met(it wouldn't be surprising). As such he has ties to Nazi gods in the pantheon, notably the similarly depraved Red Skull. He also finds Millennium's vampire program to be a boon for him, and their goals will provide him with even more corpses.
  • SCP-542 is around the same age range as him, having been alive some time before World War 1 and like him collaborated with the Nazis for experimentation. They recognize each other, and respect each other's field. That being said, even Herr Chirurg is a bit creeped out by him. SCP-106 has no compunctions, however. Like Arcane he's utterly Ax-Crazy, has his roots in World War 1, and inflicts rot on others. The two have become very good friends, much to the dread of the SCP Foundation and much of the pantheon.
  • His desire for immortality along with perversion of death(plus his constant cheating of death) puts him in direct opposition to Dhuum and Yveltal, along with Jack Harkness as he seeks his immortal body for himself. However it does make him an ally with Alex Wesker for their mutual search of eternal life, and Vandal Savage is on good terms with him as well. Much like SCP-035, he wants to inhabit SCP-682's body. Seems interested with Cell, due to his claims of being the Ultimate Lifeform. Both Voldemort and Plagueis see him as a rival, due to only wanting immortality for himself and having standards respectively.
  • Has attempted to force Fran Madarki to help with his gruesome experiments, and harassed most of the people in the House of Science for his plans. You can imagine he's not popular with them. Healers like Ana Amari rightfully despise him as well. Arcane is more capable in the House of Diseases, and has achieved much by helping spread Thrax. Physicians in general are disturbed by him. It says a lot about Anton Arcane that the Medic took a look at his resume and went "no...just no".
  • Feels a kinship with many exceptionally twisted scientists, like Davros and Professor Hojo. They've created many grotesque monsters together by pooling their talent. Nightmarishly, he and Cioccolata get along swimmingly and he find the Green Day Stand a key to better understanding The Grey. Utterly disgusts the Elric brothers for being "Shou Tucker, but a thousand times worse" and scares SCP-040 as he seeks her Biomanipulation abilities.
  • Zouken Matou shares a lot in common with him, being a Russian/East-European Mad Scientist and alchemist looking for immortality and has inflicted horrific bodily experiments on others for that. As such, they get along nicely. Though unlike Zouken Arcane is comfortable being in a monstrous body. Also, Zouken originally had humanity that has been slowly lost into nothing but a drive to live longer. Anton Arcane was always a psychopath, he just got better at being one over time.
  • Has been banned without repeal from the House of Family. Upon his crimes against family molesting his sister, getting his brother blown up on a landmine then turning him into the Patchwork Man, and everything he's done to his niece. Satoko Houjou was horrified as he reminds him of an even scarier version of her own horrible uncle.
  • Serves the Rot, the force of decay on Earth. He twisted the world into one of endless decay in a Bad Future, which both Nurgle and Typhus were proud of. However the Rot isn't inherently evil, and Anton Arcane subverted control of it. As such, most forces of death oppose him. Arcane steps on eggshells around Nekron. Oh sure, he loves death and Black Hand shares that love of death and decay, but Nekron suspects Arcane is going to try and hijack him. Also, he wants things to stay dead, and isn't impressed by the half-life he inflicts on others. Anton Arcane is a bit of a wild canon, but the Lord of the Unliving accepts his experimentation and Rot powers is useful for Destruction's cause. He's permitted to experiment in the House of Undead.
  • Can also be found in Fearsome Archetypes.

  • Interested in: The Colour Out of Space
  • Antithesis: Tzeentch
  • Enemies (one-sided on their end): The Imperium of Mankind, members of his own house not mentioned under "allies", any and all germophobes (especially Zim and Brainiac/Vril Dox), SCP-049
  • Opposed by: The Life Entity
  • One of the four Great Chaos Gods, Nurgle is the Lord of Decay. A grotesque, cosmic being, he embodies entropy, morbidity, disease and physical corruption. And yet he also embodies fortitude and determination, with his blessings having an upside. Those in his favor are diseased yet much harder to kill and they Feel No Pain. The problem is that it involves copious amounts of Body Horror, a state that drives the person to maddened despair until they come to love it. And they wish to spread their "gift" to everyone.
  • Nurgle's compassionate and friendly nature is ironically the main reason he's such a blight on the cosmos. He loves all life equally, but that includes bacteria, mold and other forms of decay. He associates himself with Friendship because he wants to "help" everyone, however, his idea of help is twisting people physically and mentally past the Despair Event Horizon so they become deranged, jovial abominations. He honestly doesn't realize most consider this a Fate Worse than Death and people have given up trying to tell him otherwise... or don't bother because he tends to break their minds.
  • Loves his followers like a father. In a twisted and cosmic sort of way, can technically grant eternal life (though not immortality). Some say that despite the way his male followers look, his female followers could end up strangely good-looking. Surprisingly one of the more jovial and good-natured Gods of the Pantheon, despite his job description. However, he has a hard time figuring out why nobody wants to come near him...
  • Diametrically opposed to Tzeentch, for Tzeentch's power derives from hope and changing fortitude while Nurgle's comes from defiance born of despair and helplessness.
  • Despite being one of the main figures in his own house, most of the members have a "terminate on sight" policy to his Daemons and avatars. However, he does have friends there aside from his Plague Marine commander Typhus. Usually, they cause plagues and diseases. He considers Pestilence to be a fellow co-worker and gave Thrax new life. And while most doctors consider him an abomination, Fran is completely on-board with his philosophy that life is sacred and that there is no Fate Worse than Death, though the Medic, who helped ascend her, is trying to dissuade her from those thoughts.
  • Has a fondness for Alex Wesker due to his use of viruses and genetic engineering. Cioccolata is fascinated by the horrible rot he inflicts and wants in. On the other hand, SCP-049 considers him an abomination.
  • Wanted to be part of the Grand United Alliance of Good initially, however because of his worldview and…everything else, they aren't letting him in. The Grand United Alliance of Evil let him in because they want to use his plagues. Of course with Nurgle, his take on "good and evil" is completely different from what most consider good and evil.
  • Believe it or not, but he's actually married to a goddess of healing who he tries to treat like a proper wife, despite the fact that she keeps giving the GUAG clues on how to cure his plagues. Considering how her other choice of a husband was Slaanesh, it's safe to say that she made the better choice.
  • Davros tried to become his High Priest by creating the ultimate virus but the Doctor stole it. He's one of the few beings Nurgle doesn't like due to being an Omnicidal Maniac that wants to use his virus to kill everything sans himself and maybe the Daleks, just to feel above the gods. Nurgles considers this insulting.
  • He has a complicated relationship with Cyth V'sug. On the one hand, there is some kinship felt between them due to their shared roles as demonic gods of rot, disease, parasites and pollution, and each grudgingly admires the other's skill in crafting parasites and plagues. On the other, besides the usual difficulty in getting chaotic entities to work together, there is also the issue that Nurgle reminds Cyth V'sug of the demons and daemons of his home corner of the multiverse, creatures he absolutely hates, as well as bitter territorial rivalry at the thought of another demon or god controlling something he feels should be his domain alone. On Nurgle's end of things, the jovial father of plagues finds the Prince of the Blasted Heath unpleasantly dour and grim.
  • Nekron is one of the few beings he truly despises. Nurgle loves all life and wishes to keep everything alive, while Nekron wants the destruction of all life, down to the bacterium. The feeling is mutual, as the Lord of the Unliving considers Nurgle to embody everything that is wrong with life, and why he wishes to bring the universe back to its silent, lifeless state. He actively opposes the GUAD on principle.
  • Nurgle has a warm admiration and genuine respect for one Yuuki Konno, seeing her as the embodiment of his ideology to transcending despair through joy. After all, ins spite of suffering for every day of her short 15 years with AIDS, one of the most painful and humiliating blights of the Lord of Decay's creation), Yuuki rose above her ordeal to become The Worlds Greatest Warrior of Alfheim and live a joyful life of loving friendship and hope. Understandably, this respect is very much one sided, as Yuuki resents Nurgle for robbing her of a chance to find true love, and have her life continue beyond her through children.
  • Does not like to bring up the time he let Slaanesh help him create a virus. The result gave those infected with it incredible powers, true, but they didn't rot and putrefy, which was boring, and their powers only manifested when they were sexually aroused, which was weird. Never one to let a good virus go to waste, Nurgle unleashed it on a random world and forgot about it.

Thrax, The God With a Diseased Name (El Muerte Rojo, the Red Death, Big Daddy Thrax)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His glowing left index claw
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Asserts His Authority Through Asskicking, Badass Longcoat, Bad Boss, Complete Monster, Diseased Name, Desires Fame Through Infamy, Both Causes and Suffers a Family Unfriendly Death, a Name to Run Away From Really Fast, Nearly Succeeded, Omnicidal Maniac, Plays With Fire, Red and Black and Evil All Over, Sadist, Serial Killer, Touch of Death, a Vile Villain in a Saccharine Show, Would Hurt a Child
  • Allies: Nurgle, Typhus, Pestilence the Horseman, Judge Mortis, Raul Menendez
  • Enemies: Osmosis Jones, Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin, the Question, SCP-049
  • Opposed by: Good-aligned doctors of the Pantheon
  • When Thrax met his end at the hands of Osmosis Jones, he thought it was all over. Instead, however, he awoke as if it had all just been a dream. Instead of the expected eternal blackness of death, his eyes were met with the towering figure of Nurgle, who extended a welcoming hand. The Lord of Decay explained to the confused Thrax that he had indeed died, but would be able to start a new life among the ranks of the Pantheon, should he accept the invitation. Needless to say, Thrax eagerly accepted.
  • Thrax is kept under very close watch, at least by the more good-aligned higher-ups of the Pantheon. A plot to create more of his kind and potentially start a plague has been unearthed with Typhus, Pestilence, and Judge Mortis as the leading conspirators.
    • Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin, however, have proven to be somewhat of a dent in their plans. Their inability to become infected is nothing short of baffling, and Thrax is incredibly resentful of them for it.
    • Because of all this, Thrax and Ozzy are locked in seemingly eternal conflict. Some deities like to think they're being funny when they point out exactly how many people ship them for some reason. The both of them, very understandably, have absolutely nothing to say to that. The idea of it alone is completely disgusting to them.
  • It's become a subject of great debate in the Pantheon as to what Thrax actually is. His name seems to be derived from anthrax, a bacteria, but both Thrax and Ozzy insist that he is a virus. The Question, however, was quick to point out that Thrax behaves much more like a bioweapon. Thrax is becoming increasingly annoyed with the Question's spreading of this rumor, but will not confirm or deny the validity of his claims.
  • Raul Menendez is one of the few humans that Thrax genuinely cares to associate with on positive grounds, at least to some extent. Thrax, like Raul, was nearly successful in his misdeeds, only to be thwarted at the last minute. For this, Thrax greatly sympathizes with Raul, and insists that he might not ever target him for infection.
  • Thrax isn't exactly sure how he feels about Morpheus. He never openly admits it, but he finds it to be really creepy how they happen to sound exactly alike.
  • Being a pathogen, SCP-049 has no tolerance for Thrax. His ascension has further fueled the SCP's delusions and paranoia over a worldwide plague that does not actually exist. Thrax hopes that, in time, he can make SCP-049's imaginary plague a reality.
  • Also has a temple in the House of Naming.

Dr. McNinja, God of Non-Japanese Ninjas (Doctor Patrick McNinja) visits this temple more often due to working as a doctor.

On very rare occasions, SCP-049 is very likely to show up here after breaking containment. The presence of the "plague" it's what usually bring him to this house.


How well does it match the trope?
