Pantheon / Killers & Assassins

Go To

Of all the Crime sub-houses, this may be the most illegal and dangerous. Here lies those known for murder, whether it be the rogue actions of a deranged madman or the high-pay professional assassinations. Similar to Methods of Killing, but a lot more professional. Also similar to Hunters, but more focused on the general art of killing than specific targets or techniques. The House of Heroes has a low opinion on it as most there have a Thou Shalt Not Kill mentality, but surprisingly enough over half the killers here are principled and have standards, even the nastier ones. Of course there are psychos like the Brave Companions, but they aren't well-liked by their fellow gods here either.

The House of Killers & Assassins is a flat for the gods there to rest and prepare for their latest hit. They're willing to hire themselves out at their own individual prices, though it varies on the individual (along with who they will and won't go after), who's hiring them, and because of the Death Is Cheap nature of the Pantheon, putting a hit on other gods instead of mortals will cost more depending on how long they want the target to stay dead.

Other serial killers and hitmen are allowed to stay over, but the rent isn't cheap.

  • Symbol: His Skull or His Sword, Azrael
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: The Strongest and Oldest Assassin, Able to Kill Anything, Brilliant, but Lazy, Chopping Heads Off, Reasonable Authority Figure, Religious Bruiser, Sink-or-Swim Mentor
  • Domain: Death, Power, Leadership
  • Herald: Cursed Arm Hassan, The Hundred Faced Hassan, Hassan of Serenity
  • Allies: Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Skull Knight, Night Raid
  • Enemies: Ra's al Ghul, Ainz Ooal Gown, Evil "Heathen" Gods, Canopus and Admins, Shiro Tagachi, Malthael, Yaldabaoth
  • Worthy Opponent: Alucard (Hellsing), Odin (FF)
  • The Hashshashin, a group that codified and named the assassin concept. While they weren't the first assassins ever, their skills were well known. Always lead by an assassin named "Hassan-I-Sabbah", they would assassinate those they deem deserved it.
  • The Hashshashin to ascend for the title is the first, the Old Man of the Mountain. He is a complete mystery as there's nearly zero info on his past. Rumors have been going around that he may be Azrael, the angel of death. True or not, there is something unnatural about him as he still lives despite there having been seventeen other Hashshashin who succeeded him.
  • Is perplexed of some misconceptions about his Assassins. For one, he doesn't know where people got the idea that they and Knight Templars were enemies. In fact, the two groups were allies against common foes. He also doesn't take too kindly that many see his Guild as nothing but cold hearted killers. He personally cut down those who had fallen into evil.
  • King Hassan's affinity for assassination is so great that he has domain over death. In that even a single swing from his sword has the possibility to kill someone. And if that person is immune to death, say immortality, he can impose the concept of death onto them so they can be killed.
  • Has become enemies with Ra's al Ghul and his League of Assassins. While most of the conflict of the two mainly centers on opposing ideology, the fact that the two are opposite spectrum of death, Ra's is afraid of it while Hassan can cause it, is also the reason for the animosity.
  • There are some in the Pantheon who are either intrigued or wary of his Death Powers. Malthael while interested in the Hassan's powers, feels like a corrupted being shouldn't wield such power. Ainz Ooal Gown fears that he could impose the concept of death on him when he was otherwise immune to it. The same goes for Canopus and the Admins who fear their immortality would be threatened. However, Fujiwara no Mokou is one of the few one who is happy about it since that means she could be killed for good. Alucard meanwhile was thrilled at facing a opponent with such tremendous power.
  • Doesn't really see any of his successors as being worthy of the title of "Hassan". In fact, he has stated that he would gladly chop off their heads to relieve them of their duties. It's unknown whether he was joking or not.
    • However, whenever he's about to chop heads off, he has enough decency to command his victim to bring him their heads first.
  • Once clashed swords with the Esper Odin. The two Death deities complimented each other's swordsmanship and their ability to cause death. The two have battled many times afterwards to test the other's strength.
  • As a man of faith, Hassan doesn't care for the Heathen Gods that are in here. While he can tolerate most, he draws the line at the more evil or corrupt Gods.
    • Speaking of Gods, he has a very dim view over YHVH and his tyrannical approach to spreading his so call Law to the the masses. He also dislikes Yaldabaoth for not only being a false God but representing the Holy Grail which Hassan believes doesn't exist
  • Approves of the actions of Night Raid as they fight a corrupt empire. It reminds him of his own past fighting against invaders of his land and people. He’s also shown interest in their skills as assassins and has been observing them for awhile.
  • Many have remarked on the similarities between both King Hassan and Skull Knight. Not just from their appearance but their personal morals. The two skull warriors did meet and they have shown each other respect for what they do.

    Gunvolt 

Oversurge! Azure Striker!

Gunvolt, God of Compassionate Hitmen (real name: unknown, The Azure Striker, GV, Geeves)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gunvolt_asg2.png
  • Intermediate God. Breifly a borderline Greater God with Mytyl's Anthem.
  • Symbol: His gun, Dart Leader, alongside a white feather.
  • Theme Song: Lightning Unleashed, Opening Stage (Gunvolt), Vs Gunvolt, Indigo Destiny (Duet version)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Byronic Hero with some Adorkable traits, Deadpan Snarker, The Idealist, Innocent Cohabitation, Kid Hero, Notorious rep, Powerful and Versatile Septima: the Azure Striker, Boring, but Practical, Prevasion, Heartbroken Badass, Haunted by Joule's physical death, True Final Boss in a case of Dueling Player Characters, Secret A.I. Moves, Leaving Joule to live a normal life without him

  • Allies: Cole MacGrath, X, Zero, Axl, Isaac, Shovel Knight, Quote and Curly Brace, Blanka, Hyde Kido, Ludwig van Beethoven, Tenri Ayukawa, Raiden
  • Enemies: Zonda and the Seven, The Corpus, Erik Lensherr/Magneto, William Stryker, Gigabolt Man-O-War, Aurum, The Brave Companions, Jack the Ripper, Senator Armstrong, Mistral, Monsoon, Sundowner, Larxene.
  • Sympathizes with: Mao, Almaz Von Almandine Adamant
  • High Priest: X9
  • Herald: Quinn Sakurazaki
  • Though the Sumeragi Group's hold on their island nation is ironclad and their security is tight, regular people and Adepts alike learn to beware the Azure Striker. Lightning won't stop at striking just twice, after all. Having forgotten his real name in the time where he was experimented on, this freelance mercenary and former terrorist in the not so distant future goes by the name Gunvolt. Though his line of work is harsh and his exterior is usually straight and serious, he's a lot more empathetic in reality. GV's sense of right from wrong are as firm as his resolve. His Establishing Character Moment is choosing to disobey Asimov and leaving QUILL to spare a young Adept girl named Joule after seeing her hooked up to a machine instead of killing her, showing the same kindness his father-figure did for him. Moments like these are only the tip of the iceberg for GV. Despite his job, he still feels remorse and is even willing to try and talk down some of his foes from fighting him. It never works, though.
  • Was initially helping out Quinn around her Big Fancy House when they noticed the scenery around her home starting to warp and change. Thinking it's the work of a Septima, he told Quinn to take cover while he geared up to deal with the situation before being met with neighboring deities who cleared things up for him and Quinn. GV got adjusted to it pretty quickly all things considered, as he's no stranger to these sorts of things. After learning Zonda and the Seven are at large, he wasted no time to intercept them with some help from other gods. Sure enough, he surprised them when he decided to bust an operation to steal technology at a Corpus base headed by the Full Metal Jacket, Gibril. The authorities had to step in and break up the fight, though not before this exchange took place.
    Gibril: "G-Gunvolt! So you're here too... well, I was hoping to run into again. I realized something about my feelings... for you!"
    Gunvolt: "Your feelings, huh?"
    Gibril: "Y-Yeah!... So, you already know about it, then?"
    Gunvolt: "You could say that."
    Gibril: "Then talking is pointless! We must have something! So let's clash once more! You'll scorch me with your voltage while I hack away in return... Let us trade intoxicating amounts of pain, Gunvolt!"
    • Though the Corpus were lucky that Eden didn't take their tech to use against them in future attacks, they didn't appreciate GV trashing it to stop the two from using it in the future. As far as GV is considered, they're not a different cloth from the Sumeragi Group. Though at least Sumeragi bothered to appear benevolent. Most Corpus don't.
  • It didn't take long for him to find allies in the Pantheon. Due to the aforementioned experience with crossovers, he's met a few deities already. GV remembers Isaac, Quote, Curly Brace, Shantae, and Shovel Knight, either fighting with or against them depending on the situation being referred to. GV decided to congratulate Shovel Knight for making it onto Smash Bros, even if it's through as an Assist Tropy, as its a big honor regardless. This also lead to an awkward conversation about Shantae also being in Smash when GV asked. She is, in Spirit. Thanks to Galeem and Dharkon vaporizing her.
    Gunvolt: (Yikes.)
  • GV wields the Azure Striker Septima, the first recorded in history and one of the most powerful. It allows him to manipulation over electrons, basically granting him the ability to generate and manipulate all forms of electricity. GV can electrify things via tagging enemies with needles of his hair darts fired from his Dart Leader, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. Projecting barriers with Flashfield & slow his descent, dodging by briefly turning his body into electrons aka Prevasion, calling down lightning, creating giant swords and chains, inducing Status Buffs on himself, healing through accelerating his natural regeneration, dashing at incredible speeds, jumping and dashing mid-air, and even hacking to an extent.
    • The downside to all this is that GV's basic abilities which include Flashfield, Prevasion, Air and jumping dashing run on a EP Meter (Electro Psycho Meter as he calls it) and if pressed too far is that he can overheat. Though GV is capable of instantly refilling his EP given time to compose himself if he hasn't overheated, though even then he has things to cover this. There's also his weakness to magnetism and water. This isn't to say that type advantage would be an instant win condition, however. GV has faced Adepts with control over such elements before, even a Badass Normal that could shut down his Septima. Yet he has prevailed over all of them, multiple times.
    • Heard of a Psycho Electro originating from South America and assumed they were the first Azure Striker user that Asimov talked about. GV went to the House of Combat! to check it out and found who he was looking for in Blanka, though he wasn't what GV was expecting. For one, he wasn't a Adept, but rather a Wild Man empowered by electric eels, somehow. Despite his brutish appearance, GV found him a good guy to be around.
    • No, don't ask him to use his powers to help save on your electricity bills. That's just stingy.
  • The world GV came from was wracked with conflict between regular humans and Adepts and has bore witness to both extremes. He sincerely believes that they can coexist, something that's a bit of a unpopular opinion. In the Pantheon, the tension isn't quite as severe despite the many Fantastic Racists running around with deities like Magneto and William Stryker hold beliefs that wouldn't be too out of place back home.
  • Frequents the House of Food for not only groceries but to also polish up on his cooking. GV's fairly skilled at it as it gained some level of notoriety back at QUILL, something he thinks can't be said for his other life skills. One visit had him run into Hyde Kido, who was happy to trade notes to aid each other's craft in addition to some of their exploits. GV can relate to Hyde's Innocent Cohabitation with Linne, Waldstein and later Vatista given that he also let Joule live with him before Quinn showed the same kindness by letting him stay with her.
    Hyde: "So your darts are basically needles from your hair?"
    Gunvolt: "More or less, yes. With conductive metal casing."
    Hyde: "Hair darts, hair needles... kinda like splinters or something, hair splinters..."
    Gunvolt: "I'd appreciate it if you stop giving my 'Tags' such lame names."
  • Though GV has a place in the House of Crime he prefers living in the House of Personality due to how homier the atmosphere is, even if he does concede to the fact that he is a killer. As such he keeps his visits to the Killers & Assassins House limited especially when it comes to the likes of the ever-so infamous Jack the Ripper. And especially with the band of mercenaries known as Brave Companions are utter monsters who's depravity are only driven by the fact that they just could. Though GV still stands by the idea that humans aren't inherently evil like what Tenjian or the rest of the Seven say they are, he thinks that they have a point when it comes to people like them.
  • Due to sharing the same creators, GV's been compared to the likes of Zero, X, and Axl. A 2D Run-and-Gun protagonist with a cold exterior but compassionate interior clad in blue who is notable for their use of a Handgun. Basically sharing traits with all three of them, with Zero being the primary inspiration. Meanwhile, his electrical powers and conflicts involving Differently Powered Individuals in his world have also earned some comparisons with Cole MacGrath. GV's gotten along with all of them, respecting their actions throughout, and is willing to give them a hand when the need arises.
    • His help came sooner than expected when he heard one of the Maverick Hunter's enemies wrecking havoc on an urban-looking area in the Pantheon. After chasing them down into the outskirts it turned out to be Gigabolt Man-o-War, who was trying to drain the power supply for himself. The ensuring battle turned out to be a Mutual Disadvantage due to both party's immunity and empowerment through electricity leading both GV and Gigabolt to use other options. This didn't last however as GV eventually got the chance to cleave through Gigabolt with Luxcalibur.
    Gunvolt: "Oversurge! Azure Striker! Send this drifting fool careening into the abyss below!"
  • Having went through the revelation that his father figure and personal hero Asimov was actually a genocidal maniac, he can definitely understand where Mao and Almaz are coming form when it came to Aurum. He also can relate to Ludwig since he went through this with multiple people throughout his life, even managing to criticize them. And on the topic of former father figure, GV also thinks vengeance isn't anything fulfilling in the end. While there's no doubt about how justified he was in killing Asimov (especially since he shot him and Joule), it did not help make him feel better at all. In fact it (combined with the fact she's Sharing a Body with him as a sort of Septimal ghost) contributed him going into a depressed and callous slump for a while before getting back on his feet after helping Quinn. And even then, he still had nightmares about Joule being shot.
    • He did eventually get over it after a lengthy chain of events involving Zonda's machinations end with Joule becoming a normal human with no memory of her past. Seeing as she's currently in the kind of life he wanted Joule to have ever since he met her, GV decides to leave her be. Tenri Ayukawa found the situation not too different from her own when it came to Keima Katsuragi and expressed her empathy for him because of it.
  • There is a rumor going around that originally GV would of had turned evil and for whatever reason took control of the Sumeragi Group. In addition, GV would of used not one, not two, but a thousand Glaives to transform when fighting. Plus, he wore a mask. Being utterly confused by the whole thing, he decides to just shrug off this information. At the very least, he'll make it a point to stay away from those wanting to tempt him to evil.
    • The reality does bare some similarities. GV has indeed fought an evil masked doppelganger created. And while its not through Galives, he did get empowered by Mytyl's Anthem as one of the True Final Bosses. With this overwhelming power he gains not only unlimited Perversion but can also spam more complex versions of his Special Skills especially in some frustrating cases. In short, he deals damage like a highway full of runaway freight trains but without exploiting his weaknesses his Perversion practically makes him invincible.
  • When undergoing missions in addition to the Dart Leader and its various clips for tagging objects and/or enemies he also wears special pendants, rings, and contacts to enhance his Septimal Powers. Defense, offense, Kudos & money gain, reduced cost for EP or Skills, etc. GV takes them off when not on duty though he still wears glasses due to his poor eyesight such as when he goes . Speaking of, him putting on glasses and ditching his signature duds is how he was able to hide his identity, basically Clark Kenting. Since everyone is aware of his identity as an Adept and most don't really mind it the disguise is more for times where he can relax.
  • GV became fast allies towards the cyborg Raiden. The mercenary not only shares lightning motifs but was also once a Child Soldier working for his mentor Solidus Snake before he betrayed him. Of course, Solidus was abusive on top of that, but the similarities remain. The resulting connection also has GV becoming enemies with the entirety of the Desperado LLC and Senator Armstrong for the countless atrocities they committed along with their goals of launching the world into conflict.
  • "Don't be willing to throw your life away so easily! If you wish to be free, I'll do what I can to make that happen."

Zeppeli, Maka Albarn, Soul Eater Evans, Sebastian Michaelis, Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, Lois Lane, Basil & Dawson, Mordred, Karna, Achilles, Atalanta, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Shay Patrick Cormac
  • Abhorrent Admirer towards: All Equestrian Deities
  • Rival: Hannibal Lecter
  • Oppose: Freddy Krueger
  • Complicated Relationship: Grell Sutcliff
  • The first and most infamous Serial Killer known to the world, Jack the Ripper brought fear to the heart of London. He plagued its streets and the district of Whitechapel, brutally murdering at least five prostitutes in four terrible nights. While he was never caught, his actions left a mark on the entire world.
  • Because he was never caught, his identity is a complete mystery. Because of this, his appearance is in influx. One moment he can be a man in a black cape and top hat or even a small girl who represents the dead poor children of London. Hell, he can even be a zombie vampire. Under certain circumstances, Jack the Ripper might be actually more than a single person. Particularly, when summoned to the Snowfield Holy Grail War as the False Berserker, he showed the possibility he was actually a demon. He himself has no more idea of who he truly might be, identifying completely with the legend of the first serial killer.
    • Might even be the Loch Ness Monster. What?
  • As mention before, Jack can change his form. This has its benefits, and disadvantages because each version comes with their own powers and weakness. For example, as his JoJo version, he has the strengths and weaknesses of a vampire zombie and can launch knives out of his body. His Fate versions can emit mist that can conceal her presence and make it easier to assassinate people or assume multiple identities to confuse his victims, transform into a colossal demon... or generate hundreds of demon bodies to attack with.
    • Jack can even transform into Grell Sutcliff who was one half of Jack the Ripper with Angelina Durless as they killed prostitutes for getting abortions.
  • Seen as a rival towards Hannibal Lecter. It's not just a rivalry between serial killers, but also as rappers. Jack is still mad that he lost to him.
  • May actually be Lord Blackwood. Because of this, both Sherlock and Dr. Watson are keeping a careful eye on him.
  • Many members of the House of Justice are trying to bring Jack in for his unpunished crimes.
    • Jack on the flip side doesn't like that Raiden has taken his moniker of "Jack the Ripper" and wants to show him who is truly The Ripper here.
  • Might be a brony. The Equestrian deities don't really like that. Especially when they found out what he did to a horse back in the JoJo world.
  • His female form can be seen hanging around with Hensel and Gretel. All three found comfort over the fact they had bad lives that turn them into killers. Many hope that their relationship is only platonic and not sexual.
  • Still hasn't forgotten the time Jonathan Joestar use his Ripple to destroy his head.
    • Jack has also allied with many other killers like Cletus Kasady (who would of been Jack the Ripper in an Alternate Universe), The Joker and Johan Liebert. He doesn't care about Freddy Krueger that much, since he uses his crimes for his nightmares.
  • During one confrontation, he was eaten by Madame Vastra.
  • Shockingly, or perhaps unsurprisingly, Jack has revealed that he is a former member of the Assassin's Brotherhood and his killings were not all completely random. His mother, a former assassin herself, was brutally murdered in front of him when he was young and it shattered his mind. He believes that the Brotherhood has grown soft and seeks to show the world why the Brotherhood are what they are with fear. This doesn't sit well with either Ezio Auditore or Shay Cormac, especially Shay who clams that is just another assassin who doesn't deserve to exist. Jack's response? "Ello Pot. The name's Kettle."
  • Jack has noticed that at one point, his female form managed to enthrall the Greek heroine Atalanta and turned her into a raging madwoman that wanted to kill a holy woman like Jeanne d'Arc. When the dust was cleared, even Jack was amused and after Atalanta's ascension, he tried to goad her into that rage again. Unfortunately for him, that failed.

  • Rivals: Samuel Rodrigues, Samurai Jack
  • Enemies: The Corpus, Megatron, Wyald, Speed O' Sound Sonic, bad bosses in general
  • Unnerved by: Master Roshi
  • Complicated Relationship: House of Demons
  • Lo Wang was one of Orochi Zilla's most dangerous assassins and bodyguards. When his order to purchase a piece of the Nobitsura Kage from a sword collector went wrong, Zilla helped the Demon God Enra invade earth to retrive the pieces of the sword in exchange for curing his failing body. When Wang found out about this, his boss turns on him and has him hunted down for the remainder of the game and the next one.
  • Is good friends with Duke Nukem ever since their debut and was actually introduced to the Pantheon by Duke himself when Duke introduced the ninja to the Gates of the Pantheon. The both of them are trying to get Caleb to join in order to reunite the trio.
  • Due to his experience with his former boss Zilla, Wang became enemies with the Corpus, who are also an evil Mega-Corp with a heavy futuristic theme and combat robots.
  • Loves lots of western media including Transformers and western rock, even frequently listening to The Touch when he rides his Cool Car. As such, he manages to be good friends with Optimus Prime, even if Optimus thinks hes a bit too trigger happy and Wang helps him in the fight against Megatron and his Decepticons.
  • Gets along well surprisingly with Shinobu Oomiya due to their shared interest in western culture. While she was scared of him at first, they became good friends with common interests and like to Watch western movies together in the House of Theater.
  • Managed to also become good friends with Beavis and Butthead, who constantly laugh at his Wang jokes. Wang also managed to learn new joke ideas from the duo.
    • Earned the ire of Speed o' Sound Sonic and Wyald for his liberal use of penis jokes in spite of the two getting severe "wang" injures.
  • Holds a rivalry with Samuel Rodreges as he wants to have the position of the God of Katanas. He occasionally fought him for the title, but hasnt won and eventually decided to keep his own title.
    • Also managed to be rivals from another Samurai named Jack. Jack thought that while Wang has some good intentions, he is very brutal and a major asshole at times. They occasionally get at each other due to opposing philosophies.
  • Has a complicated relationship with the House of Demons. While he has slain many evil demon Mooks and Elite Mooks, he is on good terms with the more noble and heroic demons. Sometimes he is helped by the Skull Knight or the Doomguy when he hunts demons.
  • Feels weirded out by Master Roshi since he reminds himself of his original incarnation who was an extremely perverted old man in contrast to the more work focused but still immature incarnation.

  • Rival: Laura Bodewig
  • Enemies: Darth Sidious/Sheev Palpatine, Arcturus Mengsk, the Grinner, the Enclave
  • Lux Arcadia was taking a bath on his temple after a long day of work until suddenly, he felt a pair of breasts caressing his back. Then, a soothing voice began whispering on his ear about her talents in pleasing men. Lux let out a scream that was across many houses. a clear sign that Yoruka had ascended.
  • How to make a sword-wielding assassin even more dangerous? Give her a Mini-Mecha capable of mass destruction. This gives Yoruka the perfect choice for missions that involve both infiltration and large-scale combat, and the Pantheon offers no shortage of those.
  • Being an assassin can be a thankless task, and nobody knows that better than Yoruka. Since childhood, she was trained in the art of assassination and was shunned even by her own father. Only her brother, the heir to the throne, was kind to her.
  • After a war with the Arcadia Empire that proved costly for both sides, she was forced to cut a deal with Arcadia's Emperor. The deal was simple: she would serve the empire as an assassin while her brother would remain under imperial protection. Unfortunately, her kingdom's nobles killed Yoruka's brother in an attempt to curry favor with the Emperor. With a brother as kind and adorable as hers, can anyone blame her for wanting revenge?
  • Taking pity on her, Ezio Auditore and Ryu Hayabusa have become her mentors, hoping to refine her assassination skills towards more productive purposes. While they cannot break the rules of the Assassin Order or the Hayabusa clan to teach her their most hallowed techniques, they settled on improving her swordsmanship and agility. Suffice to say, Yoruka has flourished under their mentorship.
  • Shido Itsuka has a surprisingly good relationship with her, given how much she reminds him of Kurumi Tokisaki.
  • Despite both Lux and Ezio's animosity towards Night Raid, Yoruka enjoys a more positive relationship with them and have worked together in multiple assassination contracts. When questioned about this, Yoruka replied that as long as war exists, assassins will always be necessary.
  • Gets along swimmingly with Stella Vermillion and Ayame Kajou, thanks to their shared voice. Ayame is curious to know about their sex lives and constantly teased them until Stella revealed that she actually had sex with Ikki. Ayame was uncomfortable with this while Yoruka displayed a mild form of jealousy, as she had been trying to do the same with Lux. Neverthless, they remain good friends.
  • Anyone who reminds Yoruka of the Arcadia Empire will meet the wrong end of her blade. Darth Sidious and Arcturus Mengsk are on her hitlist for being as cruel and destructive as Lux's father. She also doesn't take it kindly to the Grineer and the Enclave using aggressive military expansion to unify their worlds. All of them have expressed a desire to convert Yoruka to their cause, or at least revese-engineer the Yato-no-kami's technology.
    • On an assassination contract on a Grineer target, she came across a group of Tenno operatives. Finding their experiences not too diferent from her own, Yoruka has agreed to help them in their fight against the Grineer.
  • Jealous that Celestia Ralgris ascended before her, thinking she got a headstart in taking Lux all for herself. Nevertheless, they remain on the same side.
  • Delighted to learn Lux defeated Ichika Orimura in a simulated duel, saying that it was the only logical conclusion. Unfortunately, her comment was overheard by Laura Bodewig, who didn't take it kindly to her "wife" being called weak. Sure enough, another simulated duel was in order. Yoruka's assassin training and the Yato-no-kami's Divine Raiment won the day.

  • Allies: None, by 47's own choice, as he believes there's a chance he could be hired to kill anyone in the Pantheon. That said, he seems to have a soft spot for Fluttershy and Chester A Bum

  • When Pinkie Pie tried to host him a party upon his ascension, she was surprised and disappointed to find 47 never came, after eventually giving up on waiting for him, Pinkie caught Homer Simpson waking up in a trash bin with only his underwear on, which confused some of the gods who reportedly saw Homer leaving the party fully dressed, which caused Pinkie to shortly figure out how 47 slipped past her and noted she was actually quite impressed. Though Homer is still trying to find 47 to get his clothes back.
  • Being the professional assassin he is, 47 is not afraid to assassinate anyone in the Pantheon he is contracted to kill, regardless of the deity's rank and power. He won't even refuse to assassinate Asura if contracted to do so. Though he admits that such a task would be… difficult.
  • Despite usually distancing himself from other deities, 47 has a surprising soft spot toward Fluttershy, holding a fair amount of respect toward her love of animals. When he learned about what Gilda did to her, he offered to kill Gilda for free. Fluttershy quickly, but politely, refused, not wanting any unnecessary violence caused for her sake.
  • Agent 47 has an unusual respect toward the House of Faith, a fraction of the money he earns from his contract killings go to that house, the Gods of that house, however, have mixed feelings about it.
  • Agent 47 is one god that Chester A. Bum always looks forward to seeing, whenever 47 has to do 'business' in the House, he would consistently drop money into Chester's styrofoam cup whenever they meet. Chester is even one of the rare gods that always forgives 47 whenever he has to 'borrow' Chester's clothes.

  • Uneasy Alliance: Rem
  • Feared by: Dexter
  • Originally switching between Hannibal Lecter and Jack the Ripper (who competed for the title God of Serial Killers), Dexter hoped to to use his divine powers to kill them both. Using the dispute to cause the two gods to feud with each other, he hoped that the two would face one last time to the death. Then, he can swoop in and finish off the weakened victor. Unfortunately, he underestimated Hannibal's cunning and the two turned on him instead. After a vicious thrashing, the two gods stripped him of his divine power and left him for dead, with the Ripper taking the Serial Killer title. Luck would befall on him as he did not die that day. Instead, he woke up at the gates of the Pantheon, rising up himself as the God of Serial-Killer Killers.
  • He did not get the amount of followers he thought he'd get, as his series fell out in favor due to Seasonal Rot. Luckily, it wasn't due to his own failings and thus avoided being placed in The Fallen.
  • Few gods would suspect that a serial killer would have such a neat and tidy temple. Most deities think he's just a minor detective in the House of Justice. And yet it is all a ruse: he makes other gods think of him as a normal man. That all changes when ventures off at night, luring criminals away to torture and eventually kill them. Some gods would say his actions would be downright evil if not for his targets.
    • However, he is wary for the arrival of a certain Sergeant that nearly did him in when he was a mortal. Some gods say one can always make him fidget whenever he hears this phrase
  • Bad guys should NOT by any circumstances mistake him for the Boy Genius over in the House of Technology. Anyone who would want to do harm to the boy will receive an extra-painful torture session. The kid Dexter thinks his namesake is absolutely terrifying.
  • Looks to the Punisher as a stalwart ally due to similar philosophies in dealing with bad guys. It's not uncommon seeing the two together to take down mobsters.
  • Is absolutely despised by Batman. A staunch opponent of killing criminals, he is not fooled in the least by his facade. It doesn't help that Dexter goes after many of his rogues gallery. It really says something when he sometimes teams up with the Joker to stop him.
  • One would think that he would be in good terms with fellow criminal killer Light, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Both accuse the other of overstepping their bounds and strive to kill the other. While Light does not have Dexter's full name, the later's has not been able to track down the former's whereabouts.
  • There is some confusion as to whether Dexter wants to team up with Jason Todd or kill him himself. On the one hand, the Red Hood's style fits him well. On the other hand, his initial resurrection killed quite of few innocent people. Dexter decided to let him be for now.
  • Is surprisingly nice with children. It helps that most do not know of his true dealings. It's that reason that Stringtrap is among his top priorities to slay.
    • Is also distraught that children themselves are capable of such evil. An encounter with Hansel and Gretel caught him offguard, barely escaping with his life. He's now ready to deal with the creepy twins, even if it means putting them down for good.
  • Despite disliking the methods, Dexter knows better than to mess with most assassins in the pantheon such as Ezio and Strider. But at least one assassin took interest to taking him out. While he was resting in his innocent persona, he was attacked by a knife-throwing assassin. Luckily, he managed to fend her off and identified his assailant. Turns out Katarina was hired to kill him, most likely hired by the GUAE. Every know and then the two face off once more, usually with Dexter escaping.
  • Not everyone gets scared when they find out about his hobby. When he stabbed a couple of pedophiles after Kevin McCallister, he gained favor from the God of Booby Trap Warfare. Dexter has made it clear that anyone who dare messes with the kid would get a slow, painful death.
  • Rumor has it that the Jigsaw Killer is preparing a diabolical trap specifically for Dexter. He was rather interested with the man's hobbies and hopes to use his urges against him.
  • One of the first gods to deduct that Dexter's not who he seems was Henry Jekyll, much to the former's surprise. It wasn't until he tracked down the cause of a recent ruffling of civiliansthat he found out why. After an intense battle with Hyde, he managed to follow the brute and he him transform to his meeker form. Though he could have killed him despite his injuries, Dexter decided to let him go, seeing to much of himself in the scientist. However, there is no doubt the The Bay Harbor Butcher will keep an eye on his alter ego.
  • He has also been approached by Rem, upon hearing of how similar he was to Light, to be asked to spare Misa if he comes across her. It wasn't until he heard about why she did what she did with Light that he fully understood her situation, and agreed to at least put her at the very bottom of her "to kill" list, which Rem accepted. Upon hearing more about Dexter himself, Rem also began to pity him, and has agreed to keep close tabs on him, talking about who really deserves to die here. While she is uneasy, as he was Faking the Dead to escape into the wild to keep his loved ones safe from his killing urges, she is growing more trusting of her than she is to Light.

  • Domains: Killers, Divas, Perkiness, Lovers
  • Followers: Mark Hoffman, Roy Burns, Peter Foley, The Yorkshire Ripper
  • Allies: Light Yagami and all who ally with him. On a more personal note: Rem, Harley Quinn, Excel, Kotonoha Katsura, Barney Stinson,Neopolitan.
  • Conflicted on: Lady Macbeth
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Seras Victoria, Waylon Smithers
  • Enemies: Anyone who opposes Light Yagami, particularly her own house and good-aligned members of the House of Justice (they oppose his Knight Templar ways). On a more personal note: Gene Hunt, Medea and Souchirou Kuzuki, The Mad Hatter, Jessica Rabbit, The Joker, Sidney Prescott
  • She is a popular model and diva, very bubbly in personality. Underneath this, however, is a tragic Serial Killer. Misa was broken by watching her family murdered in front of her eyes in an armed robbery. The killers' trial constantly stalled, so when Light Yagami(the first Kira) offed them she came to worship the man. Gaining her own Death Note, she'd act as Kira, getting the attention of the original. She would become Light's Dark Mistress, and an integral part of his gambits. Though having Undying Loyalty towards Light, she will protest against Light thinking of adding any family members to his name. She also isn't too comfortable with the idea of writing someone in the Death Note to die in front of their family.
  • Though the first Kira rip-off, she's not the only example. The third Kira, Kyosuke Higuchi, is a repulsive figure who killed to further his business and was part of Light's gambit. The fourth Kira, Teru Mikami, is even more devoted to Light and the spirit of his work. Finally there's the fifth Kira, who's identity was never revealed and gave what he believed were mercy kills to the old, infirmed and suicidal before offing himself.
  • Rem was absolutely ecstatic to learn that her beloved Misa had ascended to the pantheon, and is currently trying to persuade her not to follow Light Yagami. So far, no success whatsoever.
  • Used to be a follower of Waylon Smithers, mainly out of necessity so she could get closer to Light. Though she has no idea why he'd be interested in Mr Burns, she does wish for the best in his efforts. Mr Smithers appreciates it, but would rather not associate himself with a serial killer. Can easily understand where Barney Stinson is coming from, and is trying to get him to be a PR campaign for Kira.
  • She doesn't think much of her own followers; Mark Hoffman and the Yorkshire Ripper are complete scumbags to her, and while feels bad for Roy Burns thinks he's focusing on the wrong kind of scum.
  • She confused Setsuna F Seiei for Light Yagami, as they sound really similar. The two weren't interested in one another, but Misa did pity him a whole lot for his Dark and Troubled Past. Setsuna wants nothing to do with the Death Note.
  • She's naturally happy to be part of the House of Crime, but for the time she's putting up a facade to be an inside woman. Through her and Light Yagami, Misa plans to destroy that her own house from the inside out. She's aware that if she's the only person left the House of Crime will collapse and she'll be Killed Off for Real, but as always will give her life to further Kira's cause.
  • Currently, she's trying to make Light the new head of the House of Justice. None of the good-aligned members of said house are letting her in. In particular, she doesn't like Gene Hunt as his tactics remind her of the time she was held captive. She immediately joined the Grand United Alliance of Law after learning that Light Yagami was there. Sidney Prescott does not like her, as she's faced off copycat killers of her own.
  • Is considered somewhat of a ditz due to her childish, hyperactive and impulsive behavior. That being said, she's not actually stupid and can be pretty smart at times (such as tricking Kyosuke Higuchi), but compared to the brilliant Light and L she does come off as dumb. This peppy attitude led her to become friends with Excel, who was interested in Kira's promise of a better world.
  • While she's really nice when she's not killing, she can get really nasty when jealous. In the pantheon, she's really envious towards Medea and Souchirou Kuzuki for being villains in a happy and loving relationship. She can get where Kotonoha Katsura is coming from. Is aware of the shipping between Light and L. She doesn't get it, and hopes it's nothing but subtext so that she has a chance with Light.
  • Spends much of her time in the House of Music and Costumes, due to her job as a model and actress. She's also a singer, however sounds rather off so she hasn't gotten that far in the former house. She's currently engaging in a rivalry with Jessica Rabbit. Once got into trouble with Jervis Tetch, who kidnapped her and dressed her up like Alice.
  • Thanks to the Shinigami Eyes, Misa is able to see the name and lifespan of others. The downside is that it halves her lifespan, which she's done twice. The impermanence of death in the pantheon means she can make the deal as many times as she wants without worry, though it's a double-edged sword for her and Light as the same impermanence diminishes the Death Note.
  • The Pantheon is not the only time Misa has cheated death, as she's been Spared by the Adaptation on a number of occasions. Though they have also been a double-edged sword as she's gone through many a Death by Adaptation as well.
  • Though Harley Quinn is a criminal, Misa sees her as an exception to the rule and a good friend. Being a blond, perky Dark Mistress to a criminal mastermind, they can easily sympathize with each other. She is working with Poison Ivy to eliminate her obsession with the Joker and get rid of her. Due to her Shinigami Eyes, the Joker tries to avoid any contact with either her or Light.
  • As her own parents were murdered in front of her, she can get where Seras is coming from. Seras is sympathetic, however ultimately regards her as a threat due to being one of the Kiras. She's not entirely sure what to think of Lady Macbeth; Light doesn't trust her and feels she's too manipulative over Macbeth, but understands her position and desire to help her husband.

  • In the Pantheon there's always something going on. From the Pantheonic Wars to the general drama between its denizens, there's a lot to cover. Overshadowed by the absurd escapades are a spree of Mook killings which progressively get more gruesome, often with messages in bloody writing from the killer themselves talking about how a third party had forced them. One comment by a jaded if a bit arrogant detective noted the killings are "a hopeless cry for attention in a place that's weird as it can get". It wasn't until a victim was found completely eviscerated in a closed cell within the House of Justice that the authorities decided to take action. Members from the House of Slaughter claim responsibility which convinced some, but investigations continued. More followed soon after, one mutilation in the House of Food and another in the House of Travel, both within rooms that aren't broken into. The traits of the killer are as follows: Someone who craves attention and who is capable of tricking people into letting them in.
    • Looking over the facts, Kyoko Kirigiri connected it to the arrogant detective from before, who was suspiciously very interested in the mutilations. When looking over his history, this same detective was also notable for incompetency and misconduct along with gunning down gangsters occasionally. After bringing it up, authorities decided to try and track down this detective who was in the House of Crime, appearing to have been trying to hide. A shootout between the detective and the authorities would of followed soon after had not the Court of Gods intervened and decided to ascend the detective, for his actions a serial killer cop in here and back in '90s Miami. Manny Pardo aka the Miami Mutilator has ascended to the Pantheon.
      • Pardo revealed that he came to the Pantheon not long after the events that took place in Miami, which ended with his death via nuking after barricading his own home in fear of being found out by the police. After that, he simply blended in with the Pantheon's police force and laid low until now. The killings were done for attention, but while his crimes went unnoticed in Miami he got his wish within the Pantheon through deification.
  • Pardo's in a bit of a weird spot due to his deification: As a Killer Cop, he has a place within the House of Justice and the House of Crime. Much of the former's denizens really don't like him, considering him a disgrace to the badge but aren't willing to act unless he actually starts trouble. The latter doesn't consider him trustworthy either, since they know he's perfectly willing to off them if it means more fame and doesn't seem to be that type of corrupt officer. That said, Pardo sticks with gunning down criminals out of some paranoia of the more powerful deities here, as much as he doesn't show it.
    • Robocop and Commissioner Gordon have worked alongside him on occasion, though both men have little good to say about him. At the very least, that reputation of incompetency can disappear if given the chance, like storming into a hideout. But of course, Judge Dredd really doesn't like him. The fact that Pardo, of all people, has a place here really didn't sit well for the Judge.
    "Not my fault you take so long to do your jobs. The Pantheon's just like Miami at the end of the day, so you have to act fast."
    • Kirigiri, Chie, and Naoto outright voice their enmity towards the Detective with the latter being reminded of Adachi's actions (Adachi himself doesn't pay the Mutilator any mind, though). Pardo isn't exactly fond of the Former Ultimate Detective either considering he ruined his plots prior to ascension and considers Chie and Naoto a nuisance.
    "I'm not your receptionist. If you have a problem, take it to the Protectors of Justice or the Court of Gods. It saves us both the trouble. Now get out of my face."
    • That said, he watches his tongue around Makoto Niijima and Goro Akechi since both are perfectly capable of dealing with him through the Metaverse whether it's a Change of Heart or a Mental Shutdown. He just needs to divert the heat off of him somehow. Shouldn't be too hard, there's a lot of opportunities in this place. All he has to do is let them meet with some vile deity out here and watch from there.
    • Considering Big Band almost got wasted by corrupt cops, he has nothing good to say about him either, though Manny clarified that at least he's more likely to gun down criminals than work with them. There was some indication he wanted to do something about the return of The Mafiya had the Son not get high off his own product and destroy his gang and then himself. He'd sooner drop dead than be some thug's confidant.
    • As someone who's all to familiar with corrupt cops given his experience with C.R.A.S.H., CJ has no sympathies for Pardo, and will not hesitate to cap him should he get the chance. The Detective just sees him as another punk, and ignores him should he stay out of his way.
  • Why commit those murders for attention? Well, besides that it stems of envy from the Masked Killings or being cohered into doing so by "them", there really isn't a shown motive as to why. For context, Richard, an entity that's shown to be very analytical of any situation he's presented with, doesn't know why he did what he did. Manny has no intention of revealing anything. If it keeps a spotlight on him, he is under no obligation to put this mystery to bed.
    • And speaking of "them", he avoids the Nestene Consciousness like the plague as well as any other dummy in the Pantheon. Doesn't matter who they are, he stays away. Similarly, he avoids those associated with nuclear weaponry, or things similar to that. Though he's not necessarily a target that could warrant such wrath.
  • Has a dim view on those who'd crave attention at all costs as Tony found out the hard way, being gunned down despite surrendering. Pretty rich coming from a guy who desperately wanted for his case to be newsworthy, which everyone brings up a lot, and it doesn't help he sometimes badgers the members of the House of Investigative Work to write about him. But don't expect him to admit to those flaws anytime soon. He's not on good terms with Big Smoke because of this, having fell to his own ambitions back in San Andreas.
    "It's no surprise that's what happens to thugs like you. You never learn…"
    • Regarding those individuals imitating him and his Attention Whore tendencies, though, he pays them no mind. Not even their insistence that he's still out to "catch" the Miami Mutilator. Some even go as far to say that all of the events back in his world went something like this. Aside from that reminder of him being nuked, he took it pretty well.
  • "Been a stressful day. You wouldn't believe what they have me doing…"
