Pantheon / Hounds of War

Go To

The Hounds of War

Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory:
One: He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
Two: He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
Three: He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.
Four: He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.
Five: He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.
Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The Forever War is a huge part of the Pantheon, with the fact that Death Is Cheap allowing it to rage on for as long as possible. Khorne, the Chaos God of Blood and Murder, benefits greatly from the nigh-endless Divine Conflict. However, the Blood God knew that one day, the War will end, and the end of such glorious slaughter is the absolute last thing a War God wants.

Parroting Lord of Tyranny Darkseid in the creation of the first Lesser Alliance, Khorne created the Hounds of War (or the H.O.W.), an Alliance directly revolving around, aiding, abetting and benefiting from the Forever War. Those who have joined him in his crusade to ensure violence and battles remain forever ingrained in the history of the Omniverse range from War Profiteers, Blood Knights, Proud Warrior Race Guys, and Sadists who will do anything and join any cause for the sake of conflict and bloodlust.

With this mission, Khorne set up a Fantastic Recruitment Drive to find deities and ascend mortals to join his new Alliance. Progress was slow to the point of non-existent until legendary fighters Ares and Leonidas immediately joined up, and the ranks quickly expanded by the dozens.

The Blood God

    Khorne 
Khorne, the Violent Red God (Blood God, Lord of Skulls, Brass Lord of Battles, Kharneth, Arkhar, the Axefather, the Wolf-Father, the Bloodwolf, the Hunter of Souls, the Paraplegic Sociopath)

  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: The Number 8; alternatively, The Mark of Khorne
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, with several Lawful Evil followers
  • While he holds just as much over the Hounds as the rest of the High Warmongers his troops treat Khorne as the de-facto leader of the group, and he gets to decide who joins and who doesn’t.
  • While the Hounds are mostly bloodthirsty, Khorne acts as the primary source of morale to the Hounds, being the reason they even are on the same team.
  • Threat level: Very high. Pure rage is deadly and Khorne gets a power boost during times of war, so having him on the Hounds means they’re practically unstoppable.

The High Warmongers

The Head Honchos of the Hounds of War, they hold equal control over the group to ensure an Enemy Civil War breaks out, creating even more conflict.

    Ares 
Ares, The God Of War (Mars, God of Ponies, True God of War, The First Son of Heaven)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px_t_ares_default_card.png

  • Intermediate God (Greater during times of war and strife)
  • Symbol: Spear and Helmet
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Position: Classical (Olympian) God of War
  • Reason For Joining: Khorne’s orders, though Ares would have joined of his own volition.

  • Value To Khorne: High, as a fellow War God with a Blood Knight demeanor they see each other as Friendly Rivals
  • Threat Level: As an Olympian fueled by war, high to the Pantheon.

    En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Many ancient scrolls in various languages all bearing his name
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil. (Believes himself to be True Neutral)
  • Position: Field Leader
  • Reason For Joining: Aside from being asked to by Khorne, Apocalypse is a war-craving Social Darwinist, giving him the perfect reason to join.

  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: The symbol for her Teigu, Demon's Extract
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil with Chaotic Neutral leanings
  • Position: General of the Empire and Leader of the Jaegers

The Empire would inevitability run out of enemies to fight, so she joined up with the H.O.W. to satisfy her bloodlust.
  • Value To Khorne: As a woman who started wars out of sheer sadism, high. On her end, she respects Khorne with the same fervour she did Darkseid, both being Frontline Generals who aren't afraid to destroy whatever they need to.
  • Threat Level: Very High. She is among the strongest cryomancers in the Pantheon with a city-country scale power at her maximum potential and combined with a fellow army of dedicated soldiers, excellent leading skills and a penchant of being sadistic and cruel in the battlefield makes Esdeath easily among the most feared beings the Pantheon.

    The Major 
The Major, God of Supernatural Nazis (First Lieutenant, SS-Sturmbannführer, Battalion Commander, War Machine, Montana Max, SS-Brigadeführer und Generalmajor der Hydra)

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Power Klaw
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Position: Warboss of his own WAAAGH!
  • Reason For Joining: The transition to the Pantheon has majorly crippled the Orks due to being war-hungry lunatics in a much Lighter and Softer setting, you would have to travel to the edge of the universe and back (and probably a few other places) to find a reason he’d not join up with the Hounds.
  • Dedication To Eternal Warfare: Infinite, the Orks have no greater wants or desires than to fight in a Forever War, so such a conflict on an omniversal scale is basically the highest of heavens to them.
  • Value To Khorne: Extremely High, Ghazghkull is basically a model soldier to Khorne if their ever was one.
  • Threat Level: EXTREME, Ghazghkull is a Genius Bruiser Magnificent Bastard in charge of the strongest WAAAGH! in the known universe, making him a force to be reckoned with.
