Justice

The House of Justice has an air of dignity and importance; the architecture owes a lot to Greco-Roman influence, with stately marble columns, floors, and molding. It shares a basement full of holding cells with the much less elegant House of Defense, and there is a lot of traffic between them. It has many functions; chief among them is judging the fates of deceased mortals, which is the reason why this House is also closely connected to the House of Life and Death. Mortals pass from that House to this one so regularly that a few of those with complicated fates have appointed themselves as tour guides. The central patio is ornated with a large and carefully tended to bronze sculpture of scales, surrounded by neatly trimmed boxwood bushes.

The largest room in the House is the massive courtroom, an old place with a real sense of history. Mortals have stated their belief that the courtroom was specifically designed to make them feel small and insignificant, but it had to be big - before the Court of the Gods was built, this courtroom was the venue for cases against gods. These days this courtroom rarely has more than a few deities in attendance. Occasionally a mortal will ascend while here, most of them to mere quasideities who quickly become official followers of more powerful gods.

Once, the House was headed and all judgements approved by Lady Justice, an old Roman goddess who carried a sword and a set of scales, and wore a blindfold to ensure impartiality. She was extremely objective, and rule bound enough to let some of the guilty get away on technicality, but as time wore on her influence waned until she left the Pantheon for Arcadia. Statues of her are still everywhere in this House. The title of God or Goddess of Justice bounced around for centuries, the various burdens and responsibilities that came with it - primarily, the obligation to look into literally every case to ensure that it was fair - making it an extremely unpopular position. Then, the spirit of a man named Steve Rogers came in for judgement, and ascended into the position. Captain America is very fair, but also visibly biased towards those of the Good alignment, which actually balances out the Evil-inclined Johnson, who is the official Judge and wields nearly as much influence. Ever since Johnson's removal from godhood for apparent corruption, this is no longer an issue. As he is also active in the Defense Pantheon, he often has a hand in bringing in the accused.

The Protectors of Justice

    Eiki Shiki, Yamaxanadu 
Eiki Shiki, Yamaxanadu, Enforcer of Black and White Judgment (Highest Judge of The Court Of Paradise, Shikieiki)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eiki_shiki_scoow_7.png
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: The Rod of Remorse
  • Theme Music: "Eastern Judgement in the Sixtieth Year ~ Fate of Sixty Years."
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (but when she is on the job, she must judge as Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolio: The Judge Of Death, Nagging to Others, Workaholism, Physical Goddess, Celestial Bureaucracy, Nice Hat, Black-and-White Morality, Compassionate Critic
  • Domains: Law, Inquisition, Death, Repose
  • Allies: The Living Tribunal, Yuma Tsukumo, Kaito "Kite" Tenjo, Eliphas, Tyr
  • Interested In: Nabu/Doctor Fate
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Oriko Mikuni
  • Enemies(?): YHVH
  • Herald: Komachi Onozuka
  • The Yama of the Paradise land of Gensokyo, and the representative of Yamas within the Pantheon. Her job is to judge the dead to be "White" or "Black". That is, good or evil. As the Yama, she has the singular power to unerringly judge any person or deed to be "White" or "Black". There can be no overturning her decision; the result she declares is the "truth". Once a soul has been judged by the Yama, there can be no appeal; no turnabout. The judgment is final.
  • However, despite her professionalism when she is on the job, she spends her time off lecturing the still-living on how to correct their lives. Her opinion is that Hell exists so that no-one sins, not to punish sinners, so she does what she can to make sure as many souls as possible can be judged "White" when the time comes.
  • The authority of the Yama is absolute. Everyone, from the lowest insect to the highest of gods, are judged by the Yama when their time comes. No life is truly eternal; no person can avoid their destined appointment with the Yama.
  • Despite this, she has immense trouble keeping her own ferryman Shinigami in line. Though even she has to admit that if Komachi wants something done, she will get the deed done. She just wishes she was always that motivated.
  • There have been rumors of the Yama making unjust judgements on a whim, out of jealousy. There is however no evidence of this whatsoever, and those rumors have never been confirmed. Though some blame it on Parsee.
  • While she carries the title of "Highest Judge", she only judges dead souls. Her power to see the true nature of any soul means that no prosecution or defence is necessary in her cases. Her only job is to judge a soul's nature and usher them to their final destination.
  • Poor Eiki Shiki had work a lot when there was a massive killing and revival of the people from the ZEXAL-verse, since she was chosen to judge who would and who wouldn't revive depending on behaviour. Though this has made her allies with the one doing the revival, Yuma Tsukumo, and they seem like they will work together in a project to reform the Grand United Alliance of Law.
    • They have managed to get Eliphas ascended, which is big first step for them.
  • She has little to no respect to YHVH… at least in some sense. She feels that his sense of "Law" is beyond corrupt and him forming the GUAL just made things worse. Where she might be Lawful Neutral on duty, she judges people on their actions and weights them on that aspect. As she's aware she stands no chance of overthrowing him outright, she wishes to somehow reform the GUAL from within and hopes that she can come to a peaceful conclusion.
    • Attempted to convince Nabu to join her allies among the Magistrate Judges, but was rather harshly declined. She saw, however, that his host, Kent Nelson, was interested in the proposition, and has been thinking of ways to give him greater control over Doctor Fate to help her case.
  • Some are judging her position as an Overdeity due of the revelation that she only has power over the Hell where the oni reside, and while she might be stronger than almost anybody in Gensokyo, there is a being much more powerful than anyone in Gensokyo and on the Moon, who commands over all Hells, essentially throwing the established power order to a spin. The said deity is Hecatia Lapislazuli, and while Eiki knows of her existence, she really can't weight into this problem. Especially when she is wondering what she is planning to do with Clownpiece.

    Judge Dredd 
Judge Joseph Dredd, God of THE LAW (Judge, Jury, Executioner, Joe Dredd, Dead Man, The Exterminator, The Law)

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His Helmet, Badge and Gun in a black square.
  • Theme Song: Anthrax's "I Am The Law!"
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral personified.
  • Portfolio: Anti-Hero, Hanging Judge, Judge, Jury, and Executioner, Lantern Jaw of Justice, BEING... THE LAW!
  • Domains: Law, Judgment, Discipline, Order.
  • Herald: Judge Anderson
  • Followers: The Punisher, Red Hood
  • Enemies: The Dark Judges, Judge Doom, The ENTIRE House of Crime, The GUAL (What they're doing isn't the law, HE IS THE LAW!).
  • Conflicting Opinion towards: Lin Beifong, Billy Butcher
  • Was honored when he found how The Nostalgia Critic dressed up as him during an expedition to stop the Plot Hole. However, he still thinks the Critic's proposition of "LAW: The Musical" and his 'Judge Dredd Blow Dance' rather ridiculous.
  • Still wants to forget that awful moment where his face was shown once to the public... even if said face was of Sylvester Stallone. He's also mildly confused about how Sly spelled "Law", and annoyed that it led to the aforementioned proposition of "LAW: The Musical".
    • Dredd has looked much more favorably upon the attempt to portray him in the big screens. He even gave him a reason to visit Dr. McCoy at the Emotion house and sometimes hang with the Doomguy. Billy Butcher, who also looks like Dredd, earns some contempt for his willingness for criminal actions, but Dredd is willing to give him a pass because Butcher does stop even worse people.
  • Other gods have learned not to Mind Rape him. The last person who tried got to "Gaze Into the Fist of Dredd" in return.
  • No other god in the Pantheon adheres to his alignment as FIERCELY as Dredd. To him, The Law is absolute, and deviation from it punishable with no exceptions. Even fellow tough law-enforcers such as Chief Beifong can earn his ire for occasionally trying to handle matters "outside the law".
  • Despite his profession, he refuses to support the Grand United Alliance Of Law, seeing them as being no better than the Dark Judges in what they perceive as the law. Eiki Shiki convinced him to join the Magistrate Judges, though.
  • Dredd doesn't really care for followers or allies. As long as they don't hinder him, they can follow his principles all the want. This just means they will remain spared.

  • There are few law agencies as successful or as noble as the Wright Anything Agency led by the legendary defense attorney Phoenix Wright. These brave lawyers will do and have done the impossible to uncover the truth and prove their client's innocence. Initially, Phoenix was the sole god of Crusading Lawyers, with his assistant Maya Fey having a seat as the goddess of Spirit Channeling, but upon seeing that more and more difficult cases were coming in from all corners of the Pantheon, he decided he needed help. So he appealed to the Court of Gods that the rest of his agency ascend to share his position by explaining that he wouldn't have gone anywhere without them. It was unanimously accepted, in part because of the Judge being very well-acquainted with all of their exploits. Maya eagerly gave up her spot in the House of Life and Death because she found it too gloomy, and the rest of the attorneys and assistants of the agency ascended together, including former members like the deceased Mia Fey and Apollo Justice, who had gone back to his home country.
  • Mia's reunion with her protegee Phoenix, her cousin Pearl and most of all her little sister Mia was a very tear-filled one, with Maya rushing to hug her older sister. She also quickly befriended the other members of the Agency and is very happy to see that Phoenix is teaching the next generations of defense attorneys.
  • Miles Edgeworth has always been one of their most trusted allies and this relationship has carried on within the Pantheon. Acting as a prosecutor to their defense attorneys, they work together to seek both truth and justice.
  • Naturally, they get along very well with other noble lawyers like Percy Mason, Lenoard Briscoe, and Atticus Finch. In particular, Mia used to be Sae Nijima's High Priest and all of the members of the agency are happy to help the former prosecutor on her reconversion to a defense attorney.
    • Two of their colleagues and fellow extremely quirky defense attorneys, the blind Matthew Murdock and the medium-aware gamma-powered Jennifer Walters, used to share Phoenix's firm before the whole agency was ascended. Of course, they still are good friends, and the Wright Agency is happy to cover cases when the two superheroes are busy.
  • Their sworn enemy is Manfred von Karma and all other Amoral Attorneys like him. Von Karma in turn absolutely hates Phoenix and Maya for ruining his perfect record. One other prosecutor they oppose is Teru Mikami. While he is not corrupt when working as one, they all see his black-and-white view of the world as being just as harmful, and so works to make sure he doesn't get innocents hurt in his zealousness.
    • They can't stomach Shuichi Kitaoka's unscrupulous manners, but their relationship is less heated than Von Karma since the Kamen Rider's nowhere near as monstrous as him.
    • Despite his crimes, they pity Harvey Dent due to all of his works as a Crusading Lawyer being ruined by him falling into insanity. They hope to get him accepted into an actually competent mental help institution so he can begin to recover.
  • They also despise Junko Enoshima for the twisted parodies of the court system that are the Class Trials. It doesn't help that she's fully willing to lie about the culprits when it's convenient and to execute the innocents. This extends to Junko's protegee Tsumugi Shirogane. Athena especially despises Tsumugi because her cosplaying as the students of Hope's Peak and imitating their personalities reminds the young attorney of the Phantom, the spy who killed her mother.
  • Phoenix has requested that any deities who figures out the truth don't tell Apollo and Trucy they're half-siblings before their mother do. Some of the more mean spirited ones noted that if it's kept secret for too long, they might do something he'll regret not stopping. He does not appreciate those comments.
  • For Phoenix:
    • Possesses a mystical Magatama given to him by Maya, which allows him to see when people are keeping secrets from him by manifesting one to five red locks held up by chains, known as Psyche-Locks seen by him alone. Should he break these Psyche-Locks, the subject will invariably reveal what they are hiding. He has also encountered special black Psyche-Locks during his career, which are the result of mental trauma, and a sign that the subject is hiding something from even themselves. During one world merging accident, it was enchanted to give him fighting abilities.
      • It is theorized by some that this was this last incident that allowed him to take part in another multidimensional crisis. Unfortunately, several gods have taken this as an excuse to challenge him to battle so Phoenix thinks he was better off before the boost.
      • The fights he's had with other gods (like Amaterasu, Taskmaster and Thor) have become so, so amusing in the House of Commerce when he uses his ultimate attack, "Accuse the Witness", and state this to the opponents:
        "The one who committed the crime...was you! No alibi, no justice, no dream, no hope! It's time for you to pay for your crimes! TAKE THAT!"
    • He was Goro Majima's go-to attorney even before they fought together to save the various worlds. Phoenix just wishes he'd stop making things even more difficult by antagonizing everyone around him.
    • Defends the accused and is nearly always able to find the true culprits. He greatly sympathized with Jean Valjean's suffering for a very minor crime and frequently seeks his advice to determine who is truly innocent.
    • Is a major proponent of the "Internet is for Porn" decision in the case of K. Monster v. T. Monster. Some say he's after all essentially a demigod in the kink community. He chose to ignore those comments.
    • He once had a giant trial with alternate versions of some Equestrian goddesses. Needless to say, he was constantly trying to adjust himself to these ponies as best as he could. On the bright side, this experience helped him a great lot when it cames to befriend the main versions that inhabited the pantheon, especially Rainbow Dash, who appreciated his defense of her alternate self in a murder trial, and Twilight Sparkle, whose counterpart he had formed a bond of friendship with during their efforts to help Rainbow Dash. He was more apprehensive about Trixie and Gilda, since their counterparts greatly hindered his efforts, but he understands that the ones in the Pantheon had long turned a good leaf. Trixie is just confused at how she could possibly have become a prosecutor.
      • And after this, he got into a truly strange trial with Professor Layton. The two worked together to save a girl from being executed as a witch in a seemingly alternate world and formed a strong bond of mutual respect for their abilities in logical thinking and desire to help other people.
    • When he learned that Brentalfloss composed a With Lyrics version of his theme song, he was less than pleased to have his hair compared to Gemini Man and being called a semi-decent lawyer. Though he does admit that a lot of the people he had to deal with can indeed be called 'total dicks' and that his song did indeed capture the frustration he feels when trying to figure out the truth behind his cases pretty well.
    • Phoenix sympathized with Bentley when he was betrayed by Penelope. He knew what Bentley was going through, as Dahlia Hawthorne had once done the same to him. Phoenix has promised to act as a defense attorney if the Cooper Gang is ever falsely accused of a crime.
    • Now word on the street is that apparently his ancestor got to investigate alongside Sherlock Holmes while studying in Victorian London. People aren't sure this is true or not because it was said Watson was an 8-year-old girl in those events. The lawyer has yet to comment on his ancestor's adventures.
      • As it turns out, Iris Watson, the aforementioned 8-year-old-girl, was the daughter of John Watson, or so she believed herself to be. Not only that, but the adventure of Phoenix's ancestor also began with being accused of John Watson's murder. His ancestor, Ryunosuke Naruhodo, was chosen to be the law agency's herald. He's still struggling to process the mechanics of this.
  • Phoenix was once hired to bail Henry Stickmin out of jail from hiding in a bag to rob a bank, of which he managed to do through pointing out that he couldn't have possibly tied the bag and claimed he was knocked out and stuffed in it. The problem was he did tie be bag from the outside self and really did plan on robbing the bank. Oops. He's still hungover what he did, and trying to figure out how in the world he managed to tie it from the outside in the first place.
    • Also, during one of those crossover adventures he and Maya managed to be put on a hitlist by one of the Big Bads and got hunted down by B.B. Hood. She was forced to drop the hit eventually, though she still holds a grudge against the two for evading her for so long.
    • Phoenix would like it known that he has no particular grudge against animals (he defended a falsely accused whale once) but he can’t let crop thievery like Amaterasu's to go unpunished. It doesn’t help that she ogles his more well-endowed friends every time they cross paths.
  • For Maya:
    • Maya is Phoenix's former assistant and current lead of the Fey clan, a clan of spirit channelers who live in the village of Kurain. Despite that ancestral heritage, Maya is a silly woman who likes to mess around, watch Toku shows and eating ramen/hamburgers. She and Phoenix are very dear to each other, though they are insistent on it being completely platonic.
    • A quirk of her spirit channeling is that she physically change into the person who inhabits her body. Many have found the sight to be quite disturbing, particularly when she channels a man.
    • She gets along very well with her fellow spirit channeler Koudelka Iasant and Anna Koyama, despite their radically different personalities from her. Another spirit channeler she particularly gets along with is Yusa Kurobane, due to them both losing their adored older sisters at an early age.
    • She somehow once got transported to Feudal Japan where she fought alongside Hidemitsu Akechi amongst others. Maya was happy to see her old ally again, much to Phoenix's confusion. She only said that he's not the only one who got to have adventures in other worlds.
    • She's a fan of the Toku show The Steel Samurai and so was very excited to meet the various Tokusatsu heroes of the Pantheon. She's particularly interested in the Ghost Kamen Riders, since they also channel spirits. She's been thinking about trying to get an eyecon of her own.
    • Struck up a friendship with Sonia Nevermind, due to their mutual love of old Japanese TV shows and the occult. They are currently marathoning the seasons of The Steel Samurai and all of its spin-offs.
    • Back in her homeworld, she had an alarming tendency to get kidnapped or framed for Phoenix to rescue her. This trend continues in the pantheon: when villainous deities are kidnaping people for whatever reasons, she's likely to be involved. Vaati seems to particularly fancy her. On the bright side, one such incident allowed her to bond with fellow kidnapping targets Crunch Bandicoot and Princess Peach.
  • For Mia:
    • Mia Fey was the founder of the office, which was back then called Fey Law and Co Offices, and Phoenix's mentor as a defense attorney. Early in the latter's career, she was murdered by a blackmailing businessman by the name of Redd White. But even after, she occasionally possessed her little sister and her cousin to give him advice from the afterlife. Due to her ascension, she was granted a flesh-and-blood body of her own, much to her gratitude.
    • As a mentor who died early on in their disciple's journey but still gave them advice after their deaths, she gets along well with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Abin Sur, and Mufasa. Though she can't help but be unsettled by Abin Sur's Indigo Tribe.
    • Naturally, she has a strong hate for corrupt businessmen, like Mister Burns or Carol, and blackmailers like Sombra. She swore she wouldn't rest until they all are finally brought to justice for the crimes they avoided punishment for all of their lives.
    • Seeing Nui Harime and how much her clothing resembled her archnemesis Dahlia Hawthorne managed to piss off Mia even before she learned how much of a monster the Grand Couturier is. Needless to say, she despises the girl and
    • Godot never talked with Phoenix much when he was the sole holder of the title, but after her ascension, he started to refuse to get anywhere the House of Justice since he felt unworthy to see her after failing to save her. Upon hearing of this, Mia immediately barged in the House of Food to give him a good talking to. While she does feel that using his work as a prosecutor to get revenge on Phoenix was unforgivable, she also told him that blaming himself for recovering from poison when she was murdered is ridiculous and that she never stopped looking up to him as Diego Armando. While this was successful at making him stop avoiding her, it still will take a lot of time before he can forgive himself and they can fully resume their relationship.
  • For Pearl:
    • Pearl is Maya's younger cousin and former herald. Despite being even more talented than Maya when it comes to spirit channeling, she worships her older cousin and was very happy to join her in their new shared position.
    • When she was younger, Pearl thought Maya and Phoenix were a couple and got very angry when Phoenix showed signs of 'cheating'. While she has seen grown out of it, she still would very much like the two to become an actual couple and have recruited some deities who like to ship people to help set them up. Maya and Phoenix find it aggravating, but are used to it by now.
    • She likes the idea of romance stories straight out a fairy tale in general, and so like to visit the House of Love. There, she met Hinata Hyuga. Besides finding the tale of her marrying Naruto wonderful, Pearl also greatly empathize with the tension within the Hyuga and their branch families, given that she grew up in a similar situation in the Fey clan. Though she was glad to hear that unlike her mother, Hinata's cousin managed to surpass his feelings of resentment.
    • Pearl is rather short for her age to the point she's mistaken for a child even as a late teenager. She's rather insecure about it and was not happy to learn she was shorter than a nine-years-old. This has granted her the sympathy of the similarly troubled Edward Elric. Though some gods have commented under their breath that Pearl was being way more mature about it than the alchemist.
  • For Apollo:
    • Seven years after Phoenix was disbarred due to false charges of faked evidence, he decided to take a sort of protegee under his wing. This new Ace Attorney was Apollo Justice, and with him came a revival of the Wright Office (who had since become a talent agency). He possesses the talent to unconsciously detect the tics that people show when they're nervous, most of all when they're being dishonest. However, he can't process it as anything that a vague feeling's something up unless he use his special bracelet to help him concentrate on it, turning him into a sort of Living Lie Detector.
    • When he was still a student, he often visited the Cosmos Space Center, where he was friends with some of the astronauts. For this reason, he was interested in meeting astronauts in the Pantheon such as Robert Cappa, John Crichton, and Captain Olimar. They got along very well, as while Apollo's actions may be on a far smaller case than the later two, they still do their best to help the world.
    • His name naturally got the attention of Apollo, the Greek god of music. While the latter appreciate that mortals are still naming their children in his honor, he's not amused that his namesake is a dorky and overly loud man. Still, to show his appreciation and because the lawyer still try to show respect to him, the greek god decided to tutor him in developing more harmonious 'chords of steel'. Apollo Justice thinks his chords of steel are just fine, but he doesn't want to try his luck denying a greek god.
    • Since his adoptive dad was the member of a revolutionary movement, Apollo get along surprisingly well with members of resistance groups against tyrannical regimes like Luke Skywalker or Tobias. However, while he understands that people like Lelouch and the Night's Raid wanted to bring about their own ideals of justice, he can't condone all the unscrupulous actions they took to reach it.
      • By extension, he despises tyrannical figures, especially nefarious queens like the Queen of Heart or the Evil Queen due to them reminding him of Ga'ran, the woman behind his adoptive father's death.
  • About Trucy:
    • Trucy is the heir to the Gramarye legacy of stage magicians. After her biological father disappeared when she was a child, Phoenix adopted her. The two formed a loving and true familial bond, and she took charge of the Wright office when Phoenix was inactive, repurposing it as a talent agency.
    • Naturally, she was very pleased to meet her fellow stage magicians Oscar Digg, Trixie Lulamoon and Dorothy Albright. She's most of all amazed that Oz managed to fool an entire kingdom of actual magical beings and declared that she would double her efforts to make sure the Gramarye name outclass even his. Oz is very much looking forward to the young magician's future. On the flip side, she thinks Trixie and Dorothy using actual magic is a bit like cheating.
    • She's also friends with another magician who's an actual wizard in Zatanna. She greatly relates to her having inherited her father's legacy. Zatanna can only see Zak Gramarye as a wretched man, but she does respect Trucy's wish to carry on her family tradition.
    • She has developed a sort of friendly rivalry with Kaito Kuroba, another stage magician around her age. After seeing his ridiculous stunts, she declared she would do her best to match and surpass them, a challenge that Kaito easily accepted. She also finds his non-violent and spectacular Phantom Thief activities pretty cool and has been thinking about creating her own 'Trucy Kid' persona. As you can imagine, Phoenix is less than happy about it, since he's still a criminal. He was even less happy when he heard about the more perverted pranks he pulled on his female classmates.
    • She was very disappointed in Ada Kadabra. Stage magicians are supposed to make everybody smile, but he only acts to satisfy his twisted ego. Not to mention that he rely on advanced technology instead of putting hard work into his magic tricks.
    • While she still admires her original father Zak Gramarye, it doesn't change the fact him leaving her behind did hurt her a lot. When she heard there was a goddess of Parental Abandonment, she went to meet Hilda to talk about their experiences. While the norma thinks Trucy is foolish for still admiring her dad after he abandoned her, she couldn't help but empathizes with the magician's situation and the two have become friends despite their differences.
  • About Athena:
    • The newest member of the Wright Anything Agency, Athena Cykes is a young attorney specialized in analytical psychology, which she studied in Europe. Apparently every country in the continent, considering how many foreign languages she uses when talking.
    • Ever since she was little, Athena could 'hear' the emotions of other people. Early in her life, she had no way to control it and so her mind was near-constantly assaulted with the feelings of everyone around her. While she now knows how to turn it off, she still can't use it without being overwhelmed unless she uses a special device called Widget to control it.
      • Due to this, she was greatly distressed to hear that someone in the Pantheon had a similar problem, if not worse due to her being able to outright read people's thoughts, and so went to meet Haruka Kotoura. She was pleasantly surprised to learn the younger girl managed to be happy despite her condition but still asked the House of Technology to make a device that would at least give some relief to the younger girl. Haruka appreciates the thought and quickly befriend Athena after learning of her similar past ordeal.
      • While she can understand the pain the Brainspawn went trough because of their telepathy, she can't forgive them for treating other species like trash. For their part, the living brains despise her because while she might not be a full-blown telepath, her reading their emotions is still very painful.
    • She's a strong believer in the importance of analytical psychology in the use of seeking the truth. For this reason, she gets very well with profilers like Francis York Morgan, Janet Marshall, and Norman Jayden and likes talking about criminal psychology with them. Mostly the latter two, since York is very odd even by her world's standards.
      • She also enjoys talking with 'regular' psychologists like Frasier Crane and was very excited to meet the famous psychologist. While she knows that many of his theories are now outdated, she still respects him a lot for his influence on the realm of psychology.
      • This naturally means she hates Jonathan Crane, Hannibal Lecter, and Angus Bumby, who are all heinous criminals who use their knowledge as psychologists to torment other. She swore she do her best to make sure they're all locked up forever for their actions.
    • She has a general dislike of spies due to much of her trauma stemming from her mother being murdered by one. The shapeshifting powers of The Spy who's part of the Mann Co. Mercenaries especially disturb her, and she can't stand his treacherous nature. For this reason, she was at first very suspicious of people like Solid Snake, Austin Powers, and Sam Fisher, but she was eventually convinced by reading their emotions that the three were genuinely heroic spies who always do their best to do good. Though she finds Austin trying to seduce her very annoying.
    • Athena has recently taken to visiting Herald Talia, who understands the pain of uncontrolled empathic abilities.
