Pantheon / Humanoids

Go To

The House of Humanoids is home to those that blur the line between man and something else. A different type of man, artificial people, former or altered humans can be found here. As such, it's the Otherness sub-house that most resembles a normal house. Some mortals who visit here are difficult to tell if they are homo sapiens or not.

Merfolk, werewolves and vampires are sometimes found loitering here. Similar to the house of Anthropomorphic Animals, who are animals with human-like features(or humanoids with animal features).

  • Greater Gods (the organization as a whole), Intermediate Gods (individually)
  • Theme Music: Gradus Vita, War
  • Symbol: A swastika and the number 1000 splattered with blood
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Those Wacky Nazis, The Remnant, Stupid Jetpack Hitler, For the Evulz, Monster Mash.
  • Domains: Chaos, Evil, War, Destruction, The Undead.
  • Followers: Vindel Mauser
  • Allies: Red Skull, Ali Al-Saachez, Johan Liebert, Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse, Edward Richtofen, Nyarlathotep (co-leader alongside the Major, they think he's Hitler)
  • Enemies: Raiden, Captain America, Yuji Sakai, Master Chief, Kiritsugu Emiya, Setsuna F. Seiei, Heero Yuy, Bright Noa, Amuro Ray, Hayate Ayasaki, Booker DeWitt, Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske, Hakumen, Ragna the Bloodedge, Alucard, Seras Victoria, Dizzy, Painwheel, Gertrud Barkhorn, Alexander Anderson, Valvatorez, Tracer, Gandalf
  • Disrespects: Mard Geer Tartaros
  • The entire Kampfgruppe is confined to their zeppelin, the Deus Ex Machina. However, they have little problem in escaping, especially Schrodinger.
  • Despite having access to massive caches of wealth, they prefer to stick to WWII weaponry. They're classics, after all, though Deathshead suggests giving them new weaponry and equipment he invented.
  • Each of the members has their own pastimes:
    • The Major is often sought by other Chaotic Evil deities, as his famed "I Love War" speech can inspire bloodlust in even the most pacifist of hearts. Is an avid music connoisseur, though he specializes in grandiose war songs. May be a bit of an otaku as well.
      • Nyarlathotep has recently taken command of the Battalion in his disguise as Hitler. The Major is ecstatic his hero's just as bloodthirsty as he is.
    • The Doctor just as often is invited to myriad Mad Scientist symposia, where he has gained some notoriety. Currently seeks to obtain more research specimens. Human-demon fusions, SPARTANs, robotics of all rank and file and EVAs rank high in his list of interest, though he is closely watched so isn't allowed to get his mitts on anything that could serve to improve his technologies. Is rumoured to be as much an otaku as the Major.
      • He also tried to kidnap Dizzy and use her Gear cells to further enhance his vampire army. The end result is that he ends up getting his ass kicked by Sol and Ky.
      • In addition, he tried to kidnap Ryuko Matoi and experiment on her to create Goku Uniforms for the Millennium soldiers and Kamuis for the Werewolves to wear before she and Satsuki kicked him out.
      • However with Wilhelm around, he's managed to obtain parts of the information concerning the aforementioned technologies. So far, they've managed to to get a hold of and reverse-engineer the blueprints of the SPARTAN program and have combined it with the Millennium's vampirification process to create their own iteration dubbed "Ubersoldaten Zwei".
    • The Captain rarely leaves his post as the Major's bodyguard, but is quietly seeking someone strong enough to conclusively kill him. He was quietly delighted at Seras Victoria's ascension.
    • Rip wastes much of her salary in super-sugary merchandise. Other than that, she likes to hang around the House of Weapons, seeking challengers for marksmanship contests. Is often accused of cheating, though the accusers rarely last more than a few seconds before being killed by the same bullet. For some weird reason, she has developed a relationship with Bullseye.
    • Zorin is a renowned Mind Rape technician, much to Johan Liebert's pleasure. Unlike her fellows, she has no funny traits. At all. However, she prefers to remain aboard the Deus Ex Machina these days and is very careful when leaving, as not to endure a repeat of the Hellsing Manor incident, now Seras has ascended.
    • Schrodinger has seized the throne of God of Villain Teleportation in the House of Travel to extend Millennium's hold.
      • The fact that both him and Hayate Ayasaki share the same voice is what bothers the latter so much. Schrodinger gleefully loves that fact and uses it to troll him on a daily basis, ultimately gaining the praise from Yuuki Terumi, who has since made him his new minion to troll Hayate.
    • Alhambra has been banned from all casinos hosted by Marge and Tsunade after he attended one of the largest and proceeded to effortlessly break the bank at every card game. Is currently seeking the title of God of Cards. Yugi Muto has vowed to defeat him, considering him an affront to card games.
  • The Major prefers that nobody brings up the Cold War in his precense, due to it reminding him of suffering through "Blueballs for fourty years!".
  • Despite the intense lack of morals, the Major still maintains his pride and belief in humanity, something shared with his mortal enemy Alucard. As such, he found Mard Geer's embarrassing defeat at the hands of Alucard simply delicious and overall the slaughter of those who believe Humans Are Insects to be hilarious. Even if this mocking ended up with the demon showing up to wreck several zeppelins, all he said was...
    "Ha! Who gives a shit? They're Nazis!"
  • His joy only increased when he learned that Zeref had finally died and in a way that would've confounded Mard Geer: Zeref died thanks to The Power of Love with Mavis. He relished in laughing at the demon that not only did Mard Geer fail in his purpose, but that the humans he looked down were the ones that stopped him and the one Zeref risked everything to stop, Achnologia. Most of all, the One Magic that the demons coveted was The Power of Love, something that demons like Mard Geer would never understand, much less come close to reaching.

Intermediate Gods

    Arakune 
Arakune, The God That Was Once a Man (Lotte "Roy "Carmine, Black Squiggly, 'Kune)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arakune_cf.png
  • Intermediate God (Overdeity should he successfully become a Black Beast)
  • Symbol: A Tarantula with human skeleton limbs with his mask somewhere in the middle.
  • Theme Song: Thin RED Line
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (can be manipulated into Chaotic Evil)
  • Portfolio: Blob Monster, Confusion Fu, Nightmare Fuel, Bees!!!note , Gone Mad From The Revelation, The Unintelligible, Formerly Humanoid, Badass Bookworm, Eldritch Abomination, Insane as fuck
  • Domains: Insanity, Abominations, Monsters, Former Humanity
  • Allies: Litchi Faye Ling (Her side only though...), Faust Baldhead, Relius Clover(?), Fritz von Meyer, Arachne, Reptile, Lesale Deathbringer, Reaper
  • Odd Friendship with: Beast (and Belle to some extent), Dracula, Mordekaiser, Merkava
  • Enemies: Taokaka, Nicolas Cage
  • Opposed by: Most of Ms. Litchi's friends and allies, The Investigation Team (Chie especially), Kokonoe Mercury, Homura Akemi, Kyubey, Shinji Ikari, Fluttershy
  • Obsessed with: The House of Knowledge
  • Not exactly well-liked in the Pantheon due to the fact that most people see him as the main reason why Ms. Litchi's life is so hard.
    • Despite that fact, however, most of her friends and allies are willing to help and respect Ms. Litchi's decisions regarding him.
  • When Batman found out that Arakune ascended with his BEES!!! his response was "My God"
  • He is banned from the House of Knowledge after an event where he tried to absorb all the books in the library. Ever since then, the House of Technology has put some devices around the house to keep him out.
    • Also banned from the House of Food because he and his bugs would end up eating all the food and grossing out the guests, and also because he tried to eat Kero along with Tiger when he mistook them for Kaka kittens. Then he tried to eat Ika Musume because she tasted like squid.
  • Homura Akemi dislikes him because she sympathizes with Litchi on what it's like having to join the dark side. However, unlike Homura's current situation, Ms. Litchi's current situation was caused by Roy's selfishness and utter ego.
  • What keeps most gods from seeing Arakune as a true villain is the discovery of one timeline from the BlazBlue world where Arakune discovered his subconscious memories of Litchi may have been the only thing holding the rest of him together. He then tried his best to cure her of an erosion the would have turned her into something like him, and erased her memories of him so that she could live a happy life with her friends instead hurting herself chasing him to the ends of the earth. Some of the other gods might have called this a senseless sacrifice due to the situation running deeper than that, but to most of the other gods, this is proof that there may be a heart somewhere, deep in this blob monster that was once a man.
  • There are some rumors around the Pantheon that Arakune is trying to make contracts with girls so that they could become magical girls. This does not sit well with Kyubey because that is supposed to be Kyubey's job.
  • Shinji Ikari and Nicolas Cage stay away from Arakune as much as possible. On Shinji's side, he keeps his distance because Arakune sounds too similar to him. Nicolas Cage, on the other hand, was subjected with one of Arakune's arsenals (bees), and then reacted as expected: "Ooh no, not the bees! Not the bees! AAAARRGHHH!!"
  • He now holds a sort of grudge against the Investigation team (and most persona users in general) after an incident where they attacked him after they mistook him for a shadow. He survived when Ms.Litchi jumped in and explained the situation to them. They backed off and apologized to Litchi and have agreed to help her when the need arises.
    • Chie, however, is deathly afraid of Arakune and his BEES!!! to the point where she will Galactic Punt him on sight.
  • Upon hearing his ascension, Beast went to try and befriend Arakune as he himself knows what it feels like to to be human once along time ago. There has been some success in him befriending Arakune. Belle too tries here and there to befriend Arakune because Arakune's and Litchi's situation sounds a bit similar to hers. (She still feels somewhat uncomfortable around 'Kune though.)
  • Dracula is surprisingly quite fond of Arakune as he states "He is a perfect representation of man, a miserable pile of secrets."
  • Great friends with Faust Baldhead as they like to spar with each other with Confusion Fu. He is one of Litchi's friends that will help her try to cure him to. Arakune wasn't even aware of this, this deal just happened between the two.
  • Earned the resentment of Fluttershy due to the fact he keeps trying to eat small fuzzy animals. Luckily she (along with Discord) has managed to prevent any more cute and fuzzy animal casualties by his hand by keeping the animals and Arakune away from each other. She does, however, leave some food around him, thinking that he won't try to eat the animals if he is already fed and full.
  • He was ascended by Yuuki Terumi and Relius Clover as a way to get Litchi under their thumb to do the bidding of the GUAE. Then to add insult injury, Terumi, along with Trollkaiger, did his damnedest to make Litchi look like an utterly selfish bitch who would throw her friends to the grinder, and burn down the whole pantheon just to fuck her blob boyfriend, by mainly using her dedication to save Arakune against her. Sadly this was one of their most successful operations because some of the Pantheon actually took what they said at face value (because Litchi wasn't even helping "deny" this rumor by being at their side) and started to horribly scrutinize Ms. Litchi. Some of the other members however easily saw through what Trollkaiger was trying to pull and gave the utmost support they could to Litchi whilst at the same time trying to defend her.
    • Garrus Varkian, in particular, fell for the false information, it didn't help that he was personally struck down by Litchi as her first act of betrayal. He was mad enough that he tried to exact punishment for letting her emotion get the best of her. Thankfully he was talked out of it by Litchi's friends, Yu Narukami and Commander Shepard. Needless to say, Garrus is now dedicated to taking down Trollkaiger.
    • Furthering, even if the subject might not be actions towards Litchi, the Pantheon has been kind of split about the decisions to do with Arakune. Some has delved into Litchi's mind and realized that Lotte Carmine really was a decent man and his sense of selfishness was perpetuated with inferiority complex and Kokonoe not helping things, thus they think he still deserved to be restored like Litchi's plan, as well as making other Gods get more repulsed to Kokonoe because she refused to take responsibility that she could've prevented Lotte's corruption if she was MUCH nicer (in which Kokonoe replied that she has no time to indulge to such silly, unproductive emotions). On the other hand, some camp believes that Arakune should just be killed because Lotte is just long dead, and Litchi was an idiot for trying to pin on someone who's never coming back. Perhaps this was something the Trollkaiger truly planned. Didn't help that Arakune himself secretly was on the former's part, but only on the part to shame on and one-up Kokonoe.
  • However, in recent events Arakune has been seen less and less around the Pantheon with a few people having claimed to see him here and there. Ultimately his current location is unknown. There are rumors spreading around the pantheon that he may secretly be working under Relius Clover. Though Relius himself just said that he has not seen Arakune himself in quite a while, especially after he was betrayed by Ocelot and Wesker. Simply put, he lost contact, and Arakune might be seen as a free wild monster again.
    • Fortunate or unfortunate, it seems that in interim, Arakune has gathered several groups of friends who seem fond in this form... Maybe he won't be so 'alone' in this form for long.
  • This is the best picture of Roy that any of the other gods could find back when he was human
    • The House of Justice also dug up some more info on how Roy became Arakune
  • Some gods have claimed that Arakune and Hakumen have forged a partnership called The Boundary Bros. (◇)人(∵). Hakumen has refused to comment upon this.
    • Hakumen was willing to say that Arakune has the potential to become a sankishin such as him and Rachel.
  • Some People have reported that there is a strange side to Arakune called "Irresistible Arakune" that attempts to hit on most of the girls he sees. However few people have managed to see this mysterious (and funny) side of Arakune.
  • Is aware that he's being stalked by Mordekaiser who finds his multitude of sufferings delicious. Arakune can't eat him, but he doesn't seem to mind Mordekaiser's presence.
  • There seems to be some rumours that Kira Daidouji is trying to capture Arakune in order to do some experiments on him. Where she doesn't say anything that proves that rumour, she isn't really denying it either...
  • Currently, if you can spot him doing that (it's easy for his friends), Arakune tends to express annoyance towards several people who insist on helping saving and restoring him for Litchi's sake. This is because secretly Roy himself does not want to get cured. Annoyed because he just can't find the mood to devour them in response.
    • By the end of it, Arakune managed to make it clear that he'd rather be left alone and Litchi to leave him, because as Roy, he was in a cozy spot to research the Boundary AND the Pantheon. After telling Litchi to move on (she did), Arakune still remained as his blob form, but much more coherent in speech, much to the delight of those who like him in his form.
  • Has an Odd Friendship with Merkava, recognizing something similar to himself in the black, inhuman monster driven by a relentless hunger and pursued by a young, determined woman. This became even greater after Roy became aware through the Boundary like him Merkava also once used to be a human, but unfortunately, Arakune isn't in enough of a rational frame of mind to put this to any use.

How he's usually seen in fiction

    Lor'themar Theron 
Lor'themar Theron, God of High Elves (Ranger Lord, Regent Lord of Quel'Thelas, Who?)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/themarTheronWoW_2702.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Greatsword of the Sin'dorei, with the Icon of Blood inlaid over it.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: The Atoner, Badass in Charge, Badass Normal, Four-Star Badass, Beneath the Mask, BFS, The Big Guy, Blood Knight, Characterization Marches On, Cool Sword, Defector from Decadence, Eyepatch of Power, Guile Hero, The Good Chancellor, Good Scars, Evil Scars, Heroes Prefer Swords, Let's Get Dangerous!, Lonely at the Top, Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal, Nobody Touches the Hair, One-Handed Zweihänder, Rags to Royalty, Regent for Life, The Chains Of Command, The Strategist, Took a Level in Badass, Unexpected Successor, You Are in Command Now
  • Domain: War, Magic, Strategy, Leadership, Pride, Forest
  • Allies: Drizzt, Thrall, Vol'jin, Sylvannas Windrunner, Baine Bloodhoof, Silencer
  • Uneasy Ally: Kael'thas Sunstrider
  • Enemies: Arthas Menethil, Tzeentch, Garrosh Hellscream
  • Ascended after finally standing on equal grounds with the rest of the Horde leadership during the battle for Pandaria and the Darkspear Rebellion. He personally led the Sunreaver Onslaught against Emperor Lei Shen, and eventually fought his way through Orgrimmar during the rebellion. Those acts, along with some key revelations about his past, propelled him greatly in status among his peers.
  • Has a cordial relationship with his counterpart Drizzt. While they represent different subsets of elven culture, they both find similarities in their life as rangers (even though Lor'themar has since moved up in the world) and their struggle to keep the pride of their race alive despite many of their kin choosing darker paths.
  • Despite many of his subordinates suggesting that he take the throne of Warchief following Garrosh's overthrow, Lor'themar refused to be any more entrapped by politics than he already was and was one of the first to acknowledge Vol'jin as Warchief.
  • Much like his former superior, Sylvannas Windrunner, his ire towards Arthas has not abated in the slightest upon his ascension. He is ready and willing to strike at the Lich King at any time.
    • He also hates Tzeentch with a passion, remembering what nearly happened the last time there was a scheming Aspect of Magic in his own world.
  • Above all things, even his love of battle, he works tirelessly for the survival and benefit of his people. This means safety from the horrors of every world and a constant supply of mana to keep the thirst at bay. While he does have other principles, this one is most paramount. Nothing else comes before the Sin'Dorei.
  • He has no love for gods who represent tyranny and intolerance, such as YVHV. He is joining the rest of the Horde leadership in the Pantheonic Rebellion.
  • Lor'themar has been informed that the fallen Prince of Blood Elves, Kael'thas, has been spotted within the battleground of Blizzard deities. While he's glad that he didn't have to involve himself, he still hasn't forgotten how Kael tried to sacrifice his own people to Kil'Jaeden. His only solace in this is that he saw the image of the same Prince that entrusted him with his people, not the mad prince, but anything can happen in the future.
    • Furthermore, the Court of Gods approached him and told him about the possibility that maybe the Kael'thas that wanted to sacrifice his own people to Kil'Jaeden could be just some 'random Burning Legion demon possessing his body and adopting his personality and memories'. On this realization, Lor'themar decided to bet on this theory and released one of his titles (Because lately he's getting better in adjusting his magic hunger) so Kael can advance. While Kael was quite grateful, Lor'themar is going to keep an eye on his former prince.

    Varsuuvius 
Varsuuvius, God/dess of Effeminate Elves (V)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vaarsuvius_7277.jpg
  • Intermediate God(dess) (formerly Lesser God(dess). Was very briefly an Overdeity, but doesn't like to talk about that.
  • Symbol: A pink triangle with a question mark on it
  • Alignment: Arrogant Neutral
  • Portfolio: Ambiguous Gender, Ambiguously Gay, Anti-Hero, The Atoner, Crippling Overspecialization, Deadpan Snarker, Functional Magic, Glass Cannon, Guile Hero, Inferiority Superiority Complex, Insufferable Genius, It's All My Fault, Jerkass, Protective Parents, Terrifyingly Protective Parents, The Plot Reaper, Pride, Squishy Wizard, Sugar-and-Ice Personality, Unscrupulous Hero
  • Domains: Knowledge, Magic, Explosions, Fire, Isolation (formerly)
  • Followers: Oberon, Aloth
  • Allies: The rest of The Order of the Stick, Merlin
  • Anonymous Benefactor: Sol Badguy
  • Enemies: Xykon, Tarquin, Bahamut Hel
  • Opposes: Miko Miyazaki
  • Pities: Sheldon Cooper
  • Annoyed with: Leeroy Jenkins
  • Uneasy Relationship: Drizzt Do'Urden
  • Varsuuvius largely ascended because everyone else was ascending. Besides, Elan and Haley both agreed shi should. Varsuuvius has been reminded by hir crow not to let this get to hir head again. Varsuuvius for the most part just nods silently. Shi's had enough as is.
  • People are just plain confused about what the hell shi's supposed to be. A man? A woman? Either way, seems to be rather fond of the color pink...
    • With that said, V has no interest in interacting with the subhouse of Gender Appearances, having been repeatedly dogged by every being there trying to figure out which House the elf belongs too. There's much more important matters to go into.
    • Was revealed to be in a relationship... but it only raised even more questions.
  • Initially only joined the Order of the Stick in order to amass great arcane power. That made V less likely to interact with the Order. Haley and to a lesser extent Roy are V's go to members to talk to. Elan proved to be too idiotic and Belkar to reckless for V's tastes. And yet, the wizard has learned to cooperate with the group.
    • As such, V shares their united disgust of Miko's inclusion in the Pantheon. Not one to care about the extremes of alignment, the paladin's extreme interpretation of the law was too much for even V to bare. Is only slightly relieved that Miko goes after certain other members more frequently.
    • Finds Leeroy Jenkins to be almost as annoying. Almost because V finds Elan's antics at least slightly more enduring and the fact that the later has shown signs of improvement.
  • While for the most part no one is aware of hir little accident, there are a few who are. Bahamut tends to look at hir disparagingly, in no small part for what shi did and its consequences. Sol Badguy, however, seems to be trying to push hir on the path to redemption. Not that he really needs to, anyhow…
    • Has made amends with the Order over the incident, with the group more or less willing to keep the elf in the group. Belkar stated it made him like V for once. It hasn't helped with the guilt one bit.
  • Has a complicated relationship with most of the parents of the Pantheon... While some were moved by how far V will go to protect hir (ex-)mate and children, the full rammifications and sheer power was also frightening, especially the amount of innocents accidentally killed.)
  • While V has never struggled regarding Family Versus Career, shi has been found meditating with a picture of hir (former) mate quite often with a rather lamentful look. The only reason shi did not try and patch things up was in order to let hir family be safe from any other enemies shi may face as a result of hir travels with the Order of the Stick.
  • While not present, V also took the events leading to Durkon's death, vampirification and being hijacked to become the High Priest of Hel like the others, not happy at all. While its now known how shi fully feels, some have noted that V may be beating hirself for another perecieved failure on hir part; after all, had shi not panicked, shi would've been able to help hir team.) Regardless, Hel has become another enemy for V to take down.
  • When V found out there was a deity for dark elves, V was ready to give that person a verbal beatdown. V has long been stymied by a rival wizard called Zz'dtri. The encounter wasn't quite as expected. The resident god explained that the wizard in question wasn't a part of his clergy, though he did promise to look into things. Varsuuvius remains slow to trust the drow, even with the Z's death. Associating himself with Artemis on occasion didn't help his case.
  • V and Sheldon have known each other for a while now and their relationship has evolved as they both underwent Character Development. Both known for rubbing their intelligence on others' faces, a team-up between the two used to be unbearable. Both have improved, though Sheldon has been lagging behind (he does hold the title of Insufferable Genius after all). Still, the elf continues to occasionally visit the physicist.
  • As a Wizard Classic, V does have to pay lip service to Merlin the wizard. While initially scoffing at giving him much praise, their friendship has improved after V's Break the Haughty moment.
