Intermediate Gods

    The Guru 
The Guru, Holy Wise Hermit (Agent Old Rock)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guru.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His walking stick and attached Moon Stone
  • Theme Song: "The Shaman Rides"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Australian koala, Wise Hermit, wearing only a loincloth, known only as "The Guru", The Unintelligible, Psychic Powers (including Telepathy, Mind over Matter, and Psychic Link), Transformation Camouflage, Controlling the Weak-Minded and Animals, Technical Pacifist, Protecting Aboriginal Lands
  • Domains: Hermits, Mystics, Australia
  • High Priestess: Zecora
  • Followers: Guru Pathik, Oranguru
  • Allies: The Cooper Gang (Sly Cooper, Bentley Turtle, Murray Hippo, The Panda King, Dimitri L. Lousteau), Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Goliath, Scrooge McDuck, John Constantine, Princess Luna, Captain Planet, The Lorax, The Beatles, Aku Aku, Thrall, Vol'jin, Nazeebo
  • Additional Relation: Dream of the Endless
  • Enemies: Clockwerk & Neyla, Looten Plunder, Hexxus, the Kraken, Uka Uka, Majora's Mask, Indominus Rex, all evil beasts
  • Pities: Penelope Mouse
  • Feared by: Mooks everywhere
  • A strange mountain appeared out of the blue one day within the confines of the House of Knowledge. After some gods climbed (or for some, flew) to the top. They discovered a small hut there along with a strange purple koala in deep meditation as a wooden stick with a beautiful orb made of an unknown mineral attached to it was at his feet. When word reached those below, Bentley and Murray went up to see if their suspicions were correct. Upon seeing the koala, Murray shed tears of joy as he called out for his "master". Bentley then informed the others present about the koala known only as the Guru. When asked how he managed to arrive, the Guru, in his strange dialect, said it was by the will of the Dreamtime and that he was needed. Nobody questioned him further. With his inclusion, the Cooper Gang was finally assembled within the Pantheon.
  • The Guru may look harmless and would never raise a paw to fight others, but he has been empowered by his connection to the Dreamtime, giving him unnatural Psychic Powers. Telekinesis, changing shape to blend into surroundings, and being able to control the minds of both people and animals alike are the only known abilities the Cooper Gang have seen. Murray probably knows more but he's too excited over his "master's" arrival to really explain them.
  • The Guru seldom leaves his humble temple at the peak of his mountain in the House of Knowledge, so those who want an audience with him have to make the long trek up the mountain to see him unless they can fly or teleport up. Bentley then had an elevator built to accomodate those unable to make the trek up much to the relief of many.
    • Strangely enough, despite talking in a dialect outsiders are unable to understand, everyone around him can understand him perfectly. Some chalk it up to the Guru using telepathy to make his words understood within the minds of those who hear them.
  • Due to his connection to the Dreamtime/Dreaming, the Guru is familiar with Dream of the Endless. It's quite a shock seeing one of the Pantheon Holy Trinity calmly talk things over with a lesser being, but Dream states that the Guru knows a lot about the Dreaming than he lets on and considers the old koala a valuable ally. This, of course, makes Murray fanboy him even more.
  • As a short being who can also tap into a mystical force, it's no surprise the Guru and Yoda get along well. Even though the Jedi Master still has amazing swordsmanship unlike the Guru's technical pacifism in avoiding conflict head-on, he considers him an equal.
  • Unlike the other members of the Cooper Gang, he really doesn't antagonize former member Penelope Mouse due to his calm demeanor, and instead pities her, as he believes she was misguided in her single-minded attempt to have Bentley all to herself by erasing Sly's history as love can be dangerous if not properly centered. Penelope in return doesn't like being pitied, but at least makes a note to not bother the old master for old times' sake.
  • Aside from Dream, many other characters who have had prior experience journeying into the Dreamtime come to him from time to time to talk with him as well. Goliath, Scrooge and Constantine are three of his most frequent visitors. More often than not, he takes visitors into the Dreamtime to help solve problems in unconventional manners.
    • As a "spiritual guide", he gets many newcomers who want to be his students. The Guru gauges their spiritual centers and if he finds them pure, allows them to join him. Some of his most known students are the Fab Four from Liverpool, whom remind the Guru of another group of four musicians whom he took as students while in New York.
  • During one sojourn through the Dreamtime, he came across the Royal Equestrian Dream Walker, Princess Luna as she was in the middle of visiting the dreams of deified ponies. They got into a conversation and the old master gave Luna some advice which left the alicorn pensive. Later on in waking hours, she flies up to the Guru's mountain to resume conversations with him.
  • He is strictly against any form of environmental destruction as he considers it a defiling force over nature. He has allied himself with both Captain Planet and the Lorax to help preserve the natural habitats within the Pantheon from destruction from the likes of Looten Plunder, Hexxus and others.
  • Evil masks are one of the few things that concern the Guru as he was once the guardian of the Mask of Dark Earth which was thankfully destroyed. However, he has new mask enemies in the form of Majora's Mask and Uka Uka. The Guru has sworn that he will rid the Pantheon of their presence and "purify" them by any means necessary.
    • He nearly mistook Aku Aku as another evil mask until Crash Bandicoot stopped him. Realizing his mistake and learning Aku Aku is a powerful spirit in his own right, both of them have joined forces in stopping the two evil masks.
  • Aside from Aku Aku, he met Thrall as a fellow shaman, who introduced him to Vol'jin, whom he then introduced to Nazeebo of the Nephalems. The five of them meet up once in a while to discuss various rites and their experiences.
  • The Guru may be peaceful, but he has no qualms about using Mind Control. Mooks everywhere fear the Guru as he is able to control their minds with ease. Thankfully the Guru does nothing really deadly with them aside from using them mainly as living battering rams. It's only when he instead turns to animals that really cement the Guru as dangerous. Nothing scares a mook more than seeing a koala ride atop a fearsome dragon and directing its attacks.
    • Due to creating a Psychic Link between himself and beasts, he is one of the few who can look into the minds of them to better understand them. This has proved beneficial as he's sometimes called to deal with a troublesome animal. However, even the Guru has his limits. He has attempted to go into the minds of many evil beasts and was horrified to see nothing but hatred and single-minded carnage. Of all the beasts that worry him, Indominus Rex is at the top of the list. The Guru talks in whispers over the things he saw deep within her mind and gets chills just with the thought.

Lesser Gods

    Alice Margatroid 
Alice Margatroid, Goddess of Lonely Doll Girls (Seven-Colored Puppeteer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d8836170_0f53_49a9_8f9a_14f5d868d89c.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Two dolls ("Shanghai" and "Hourai") guarding her Grimoire
  • Theme Music: Doll Judgement ~ The girl who played with people's shapes
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Magical Puppeteers, Tsunderes (maybe), Holding Back, Badass Bookworm, Danmaku, Magicians, Alice Allusion, Lonely Doll Girl
  • Domains: Puppets, Magic
  • Followers: Kankuro, Dave's Bro/Dirk Strider
  • Allies: Marisa Kirisame, Carl & Ada Clover, Haruka, Satori Komeiji, Fiona Mayfield, Haruka Takayama, Rubick, Banette
  • Enemies: Relius Clover
  • Opposes: Donquixote Doflamingo
  • She is good friends with Marisa... apparently after she stole her precious heart.
  • She found Suigintou and nursed her back to her health after the latter was thoroughly discarded and abused by Tomoe Marguerite. Alice has since gained Suigintou's respect and at one point came to blows with Tomoe... with Alice on the winning side, of course.
  • Is hiding Carl Clover in her house per his request since he needs time to plan his counterattack against his evil father Relius. Alice accepts him, if only his mastery over BIGGER puppets (Nirvana) interests her.
    • She eventually used information from interacting with him to develop her "Goliath Doll".
    • Kind of annoyed with how Amane Nishiki pesters her with handing Carl over to him. Not only her "Goliath Doll" is still in development, Alice has kind of grown fond to the boy. There's usually a battle that broke out with Amane's... whatever skills and Alice's Danmakus, but none of them are able to gain upper hand.
    • At one point, Carl decided to leave her house and ended up helping Relius with one his plans. Alice was at first shocked about this, but was relieved to hear that Carl had no plans to actually help Relius and is watching him until he turns Ada back to normal. Carl and Alice still keep in contact with each other, helping each other in need. Alice is also fine if Ada gets turned back to human as she can then harvest any parts leftover from Nirvana and use them on her Goliath Doll.
    • Unfortunately later on, Carl stopped keeping in contact with her for good, and the last Alice heard was that he had a 'talk' with Relius, who was then freed from his containment. With the Goliath Doll project put on indefinite hiatus because of this, that was the last straw for Alice. She would hunt down Relius and make him regret ever messing with her plans.
  • She possesses a staggering amount of dolls in her arsenal, being able to sent them at her opponent in huge numbers. And the fact that she tends to blow them up, one does wonder where does she keep them.
  • She refuses to open her Grimoire up at any cost, even if it makes her even powerful. She has only opened it once as far as anyone knows.
  • Has been hanging around Uncle Howee because of the latter being interested in her puppetry skills and has asked her to teach him how to garner more viewers to his show. However, Alice wishes not to know where Uncle Howee gets his marionettes from.
  • Was little more than an acquaintance at first with Haruka when she first ascended, because where Alice doesn't view Haruka in such a good position, her puppet creations impress Alice and she wishes to learn from her. However, their interaction did eventually lead to the creation of "The Grand Puppeteer Court" with the two of them, Carl and Ada Clover, Suigintou and Uncle Howee, with her being The Leader.
  • Is really interested in the new doll that ascended in the House of Living Objects, Banette and can be seen hanging out with him and Suigintou.
  • Actively opposes Doflamingo for his People Puppet tendencies, Razor Wire abilities, and incredibly manipulative attitude towards people in general. Doffy for his part sees Alice as little more than an understudy unworthy of his time, not perceiving her as much of a threat.
  • She currently now resides in her new second temple, located in the Hall of Toys and Dolls.

    Karen Minazuki/Cure Aqua 
Karen Minazuki, Goddess of Wealth-Induced Loneliness (Cure Aqua, Babaa)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aqua5.png
Cure Aqua (GoGo!) 
  • Lesser Goddess (as of GoGo!, she is an Intermediate Goddess)
  • Symbols: A miniature version of her Big Fancy House with the Aqua Pinky Catch at the center
  • Theme Songs: Karen's Theme, Heavenly Blue(Lyrics here)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Water Magic, Student Council President, Ridiculously Rich Girls (With Hugeass House To Boot) That Are Lonely, Intelligence, Defrosted Ice Queen, Early Adventure Rebuff, Precure Sapphire Arrow, Graceful Magical Girl Warrior, Medical Studies
  • Domains: Emotion, Healing, Magic, Combat
  • Allies: All the Pretty Cures (preferably the Yes! ones), Mami Tomoe, Aquaman, Percy Jackson, Unohana Retsu, Litchi Faye-Ling, Mordin Solus, Charlotte LaBouff, Jay Gatsby
  • Respects: Kyoichiro Kuroi/Kamen Rider 3 (formerly being Opposed by Karen)
  • Enemies: Bernkastel, Yuuki Terumi, Handsome Jack, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Eliza and Neil Reagan, Looten Plunder
  • Conflicting Opinion: Chosokabe Motochika (is actually close friends with the shamisen-player Koei version)
  • Although she was personally not very lonely at all, Karen's past experience as a lonely soul enabled her to be elevated in the ranks of the Pantheon on the recommendation of Nagisa and Honoka (ontop of helping defeat the Nightmare and Eternal group). Karen's job is to soothe the loneliness of those who are rich and hopefully make them get past it by getting friends. She'll offer as the first friend too.
    • Her entrance was a little rocky as well. She thought she received the invitation to the Pantheon itself. When she approached the gates of the Pantheon, she was instead refused and booted out, as it was said that the invitation was fake, sending Karen into depression. The Yes! Cures still in mortal realm encouraged her to keep trying, and the Pantheon found out that the fake invitation was the machination of Terumi to Troll her with lines like "Forever Alone" after learning what she would achieve. After difficulties were taken care of, Karen was finally permitted.
  • She knew one day this would come to an end, but Karen is the first Yes! Cure to ever embrace the proper Pantheon. She eagerly waits that she won't be the only one (Considering that Rin Natsuki and Komachi Akimoto have been spotted in the Academy). Before that, she would content herself with the new friends she made in the Pantheon.
  • She excels in medical studies. She learned a lot from various Gods that knew the arts of healing and respected them all, but Karen mostly favored and hung around with Litchi Faye-Ling a lot, as not only she was the one who helped solve the difficulty of her entrance at first (along with Mami Tomoe), Karen considered her like a substitute mother figure considering her mortal mother (that she still loved and respected) rarely visit her.
    • During spare times, she tends to lock herself inside a room and held on her hand a spare Miracle Light she found, occasionally waving at it with hope. A lot thought it was because she's getting lonely herself, but in truth she's praying for a miracle, secretly sharing the item with other Precures that share her sentiments, so that everything will go well with Litchi's questionable status. Karen is unsure if this will surely fix things, but she felt that she has to try regardless.
  • Whenever she enters the Food Pantheon and leaves it, you can be assured that they will lose at least one bottle of grape juice.
  • Although it wasn't uttered often, calling Karen 'Babaa' is not recommended, she's not too pleased with it.
  • Has a personal horse named Charlie, who may not be as great as Koku-Oh, but Karen deeply cared for the horse, and the horse often came to her as her stead in battle. Naturally, she didn't take it well when Handsome Jack called the name 'lame' and offers to rename it as 'Butt Stallion II', causing Karen to flood him away.
  • Her house is amongst the biggest and fanciest in the Pantheon.
  • Contrary to her portfolio, Karen understood that the House of Commerce aren't always problematic. But she does understand that it tends to make several lonely people because of their immense wealth, that's where she comes in. In a way, it makes her similar to Yuri Tsukikage, fixing the problems her portfolio represents.
    • Though she does keep an eye against Looten Plunder, as his selfish motivations for richness are really promoting things Karen stood against. Not to mention, she along with her friends have fought not just one, but two evil world-destroying corporates.
    • She ran into Charlotte Labouf during one of her trips and the two got along splendidly over gumbo, beignets and fairy tales. Charlotte truly supports Karen's goals in helping lonely girls to obtain friends and is wiling to work with alongside her.
  • She also discovered Litchi's secret of getting drunk when no one's looking. Although she got her to agree not to drink, Karen got roped into playing 'dress ups'. While she agreed, she's secretly thinking of how to come up with a cute dress that fit Litchi's size without flaunting her wealth... something that she's contacting Charlotte for help.
  • She had a nightmare of Litchi leaving her and going back to her old obsessed self, leaving her in complete depression like she did when she was stuck in a Nightmare Mask. Fortunately, the nightmare was broken when Litchi woke her up and told her that she managed to redeem herself and is welcomed back amongst the proper Pantheon. Karen has nothing to say but a congratulations.
    • Is... less than fond of the ascension of Arakune due to the fact that she remembers from her nightmares that he was the reason why Ms. Litchi left her and had to work for the bad guys. Despite that, she respect Litchi's decisions regarding him and will help her cure him if possible, thus she wouldn't exactly 'oppose' him, but merely drive him away without killing him when he wreaks havoc.
    • Eventually, these feelings would thrust her head on into the Morality Civil War, with her being one of Litchi's most steadfast friend and defender, to the point that she harbored intense dislike to Kokonoe Mercury for brushing off Litchi without even caring about her conditions and claiming that her idea is the best idea to deal with Litchi. This is to the point that Karen started getting creeped out that she found herself edging with the slippery slope against Kokonoe…
    • By the end of it, the War ended and the Pantheon has given official statement that Litchi was to be forgiven. Karen was one of the first beings to wait at Litchi's house and gave her a hug, along with others.
  • Freed Jay Gatsby from The Fallen by accepting his money. She even managed to bring him to the same house as her.
  • Akin to another Pretty Cure member, it seems nowadays Karen has befriended another historical figure: Chousokabe Motochika (the shamisen-player, mind you). When they've first met, Motochika was strumming his shamisen in peace, and Karen was attracted to his music due to being well-aware of fine talent in that field. He then talked with her for a while about their water motifs, and played her a song of some sort regarding his stance in life. It touched her, especially with their possible ways to relate to each other somewhat.
    • When Karen was shocked to find out that he was the Chousokabe Motochika, ruler of Shikoku, she was at a loss for words. But in the end, they ended up as close friends.
  • Can also be found in Child Behavior.

    Lisa Simpson 
Lisa Marie Simpson, Goddess of Intelligent Loners

  • Herald: Snowball II (her pet cat)
  • Allies
  • On good/neutral terms with: All good/neutral-aligned Pokémon Trainers, Ron Swanson
  • Enemies: Sideshow Bob, Charles Montgomery Burns, Hexxus, Cruella De Vil, Ghetsis Harmonia, Pokémon Hunter J, Miles Quaritch, B.B. Hood, Herbert Garrison, Ethan Roark Senior
  • Opposes: Hank Hill, Stan Smith
  • Pities: Rowf and Snitter
  • She was once the Goddess of Author Tract, but Lisa disliked the trope she was given, saying that she is more then just a mouthpiece for her creator. The Gods then gave her two new tropes, which she felt was more fitting. However, they later felt that she went too far with her soapboxing, and was kicked out of the Pantheon with her tropes given to other deities. Her parents were not happy about this, and after begging to let her back in, Lisa was accepted with a new trope.
    • Before she re-entered the Pantheon, the Gods agreed that Lisa should have a mentor to keep an eye on her so she could keep her promise of not going too far with her values. However, her mother was busy with cleaning the Pantheon and her father was denied for being a not-so-great parent. The Gods then chose Lesile Knope for having similar ideals without outright forcing others to agree with her. While Homer and Marge were wary about this at first, they both noticed how they enjoy each others company and her parents kept the two of them alone ever since.
    • With that said, Lisa doesn't hold any ill towards those who have her former tropes. She heavily relates to Momo Isshiki's life, and is regularly seen protesting with Marzipan.
  • Originally, Lisa was manipulated by Ghetsis into believing that all Pokémon are being abused by their trainers and they need to be released in the wild. After that, she hated all Pokémon trainers for apparent "animal cruelty". And when the partnership program was launched, she protested that it further encourages it. However, after meeting N, she learned that their supposed "cruelty" was just a misconception and that Ghetsis is a horrible person who abused his own son and ran an animal rights group that was anything but. Nowadays, she's very supportive of the practice and only hates the Evil-aligned trainers. It helps that she did enjoy a bland name version of one of their games.
  • Despite her trope, she managed to make a decent amount of friends in the Pantheon compared to her universe. Apparently, the status quo doesn't apply here.
  • She was hoping to find another politically opinionated, young girl around her age; she managed to find Mafalda, who was just that. They love talking about how talking about the multiple problems the world has, with Mafalda even seeing Lisa as true friend.
  • Malcolm Wilkerson really relates to Lisa with how they feel that they're the only smart and sane member in their respective families. Though, they both agree that his family is much crazier.
  • Lisa absolutely hates animal cruelty. After hearing about Rowf and Snitter's experience at the animal research facility, she teamed up with other people who love animals such as Steve Irwin and Eliza Thornberry to stop such treatment.
    • She doesn't like Cruella De Vil for her hatred towards animals, her love of fur coats and strangely enough, having a plan similar to what Mr. Burns did. When she was about to throw red paint at her, Lisa encountered Stan Marsh, who had plans to prank Mrs. De Vil. Stan noticed that she's very similar to his on and off girlfriend, Wendy. While Lisa does love that he despises those who harm animals, Stan just wants to be friends with Lisa, even though Wendy broke up with him. He knows that she can't keep a boyfriend.
  • She really cares about the environment and will do anything to stop pollution and deforestation. She highly respects the House of Nature, though she finds some of Captain Planet's statements on the earth too overbearing even for her.
    • Lisa hates Miles Quaritch for planning to devastate the alien planet, Pandora, for the sake of getting resources for Earth.
    • While Lisa was protesting, Hexxus stepped in to ruin her plans and nearly killed her with his smog. Fortunately, Swamp Thing came in to save her. Lisa was scared of him at first, but he told her of the many things he had done to protect the environment. She has respected him ever since.
  • Lisa may soapbox a lot, but she's still an eight-year-old girl and as such, loves ponies. She met Spirit once and became one of the few humans he liked for her dislike of pollution and Mr. Burns. Unsurprisingly, she got along with some of the deities from Equestria. But the one pony she really liked was Fluttershy due to how both of them love animals and have a hard time making friends (Though Fluttershy's reason for the latter is different).
  • Lisa got along quite nicely with Amy Santiago for being a fellow Fox deity (Formerly, in Amy's case) who's smart, adorkable, and can get smug at times. Amy once tried to convince Lisa to work for the police force when she grows up, but she respected her decision not to do that, considering how terrible the cops in Lisa's town are.
  • She was originally turned off by Sam Manson due to having bad experiences with rich people, but Lisa found out she cared about important issues just as much as her. Since then, the two of them became protest buddies along with Marzipan.
  • She doesn't care for Hank Hill and Stan Smith as Lisa feels people like them are ruining America. Despite Ron Swanson having similar traits, Lisa goes out of her way to tolerate him because A, he's only a libertarian and not a full on right-winger and B, Ms. Knope told her to be nice with her (somewhat) friend.
  • Lisa once tried to make friends with B.B. Hood, seeing her as a nice girl. That was until she saw her walking to the House of Beasts and Fauna, pulling out her Uzi, and shooting anything with four legs. Lisa stayed far away from her ever since.
  • She doesn't care for horrible politicians after her trip to Washington, D.C.. Ethan Roark Senior does not like her views, but ignores her, seeing Lisa as just a little girl.
  • Upon entering the House of Music, Lisa got a couple surprises. First, Paul McCartney managed to get in. While Paul doesn't like that Lisa still kept shoving her beliefs down other people's throats after he told her not to do that, he's still happy to see her and is glad that she's trying to change. Another interesting tidbit was that she finally got to meet Michael Jackson!
    Lisa: "You know, Michael, my dad once brought home a mental patient named Leon Kompowsky, but he had the same voice as you and he co-wrote a birthday song with my brother!"
    Michael: "Yeah, I'm sure he was a nice guy."
  • She met Yoshino once, who also has a hard time making friends. While Lisa finds that her constant talking to her puppet Yoshinon a bit creepy, she understands why she does it, as she uses him to deal with her loneliness and overall, sees her as a nice girl.
  • Don't ask her about where her boyfriend, Colin, went after the movie. Not even she knows about his whereabouts.
  • At one point in the future, she will become President of the United States after President Garrison's disastrous stint with the job.

  • You know Dasher and Dancer, and Prancer and Vixen. Comet and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall... the most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeernote , as his name implies, was born with a shiny red nose. So bright in fact, that people would even say it glows. While his parents tried to hide it from public eyes, his unique snout was soon discovered and turned Rudolph into a laughing stock. All of the Other Reindeer in the North Pole mocked and humiliated the poor fawn. They called him cruel names and wouldn't let him play in their reindeer games. Even Santa himself acted incredibly jerkish towards him. Time soon passed, and a terrible storm engulfed the North Pole, not letting up even as Christmas Eve approached. Santa was close to cancelling the holiday altogether... until he realized something. He approached the now-adult Rudolph and asked, "Rudolph with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" And he did. With his nose piercing through the fog and mist, Rudolph led the way around the world and allowing Santa to deliver the presents on time. Christmas was saved, and the reindeer changed their attitude. They came to love him and cheered with glee, that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer would go down in history.
  • Rudolph ascended to the Pantheon alongside Santa during one particular holiday season. A strong winter storm rolled over the entire Pantheon, causing mass concern over whether or not Christmas would come at all. All hope seemed lost, when, hidden in the fog and snow, a red light was spotted. The deities, both young and old, knew instantly who the light belonged to, with the younger ones cheering as Rudolph led Santa's sleigh through the blizzard, delivering presents as they went. Christmas had been saved once more, with Santa and Rudolph being given temples and titles within the Pantheon as thank you for their efforts.
    • Santa and Rudolph share a temple, leading back to Christmas Town, better known as the North Pole. It is a quaint little area, with the Claus' and their elves living on the first castle on the left. note  The reindeer either live in the castle's stables or in the nearby caves. Business goes on as usual in preparations for December 24th, so should one ever visit, don't be surprised by all the elves and reindeer working and practicing.
  • The version of Rudolph seen in the Pantheon hails from a bizarre timeline, where he, the son of Donner, ran away from home and travelled with an aspiring elf dentist named Hermey and Canadian prospector Yukon Cornelius to an island of misfit toys, confronting the Abominable Snow Monster, and eventually saving his family from said monster. However, his appearance tends to fluctuate from time to time; sometimes he looks like an adult and other times he reverts into a young fawn. As well, his origins are often thrown into question. Some claim he was born to Blitzen, and was rivals with his cousin, Arrow, while others say his story was more simplistic. He will transform into these alternate forms occasionally, but he is most comfortable in his stop-motion body. Besides, it allowed for Hermey, Yukon and fellow reindeer Clarice to arrive as Heralds.
  • Rudolph's love for Christmas is an absolute given and he was surprised to learn there were many other deities associated with the holidays living in the Pantheon. Luckily for him, most of them are on good terms with the reindeer. Besides the Santa and Mrs. Claus he's most familiar with, Rudolph came to work alongside the Guardian, Nicolas Saint North, the young idols Hijiri Mochizuki and Eve Santaclaus, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet To Come. They all do their duties to spread Christmas cheer and joy to the Pantheon and to the Worlds, with Rudolph always leading the way with his nose lighting the darkness.
    • Initially, Rudolph had a difficult time trusting Ebeneezer Scrooge, Jack Skellington and The Grinch, due to their previous attempts to take over, sabotage or simply disregard Christmas altogether. Not to mention the latter two having dogs (Zero and Max) that they used in roles similar to reindeer. Then the young buck discovered their histories, learning how all three went through epiphanies and changed their ways to cherish the holiday season. Nowadays, Rudolph will occasionally enlist their help to spread Christmas cheer to the Pantheon... while keeping Jack from stealing the show.
  • One Christmas Eve, Rudolph and Santa met three (former) homeless folks from Japan, named Gin, Hana and Miyuki, and witnessed their story of helping reunite an abandoned baby with her parents. Santa noted the trio's incredible luck on their journey and kindness to the child and decided to give them a place in the Pantheon. Rudolph often stops by the check up on them and even invite them to the North Pole to help in the festivities.
  • Rudolph knows first-hand how it felt being ostracized for his differences and has gone about the Pantheon making friends with others like him. He is close to Naruto Uzumaki since the two were picked on in their childhood before earning the respect of others after saving them. He's also friends with Dumbo, often flying alongside the big-eared elephant during the holidays and helping Santa, The imaginative, Canadian red-head Anne Shirley, and the Fire Nation born circus performer Ty Lee, who took to the reindeer almost instantly, even praising him for using his gifts for good. The more cynical deities often make fun of these friendships, considering the red-nosed reindeer and company a bunch of mismatched misfits and freaks. Rudolph and the others don't really care for their opinions. Friends stick together no matter what, after all. He also became close to Haruka Kotoura and was heartbroken when he heard how she couldn't control her telepathic power, causing major issues. Haruka was surprised to find out that she could read Rudolph's mind despite being an animal. She's actually ok with it because most times, his mind is filled with sugar plums, fairies, Christmas and Clarice.
    • Despite this, Rudolph does have limits. He once heard of the dealings of the Diclonius, Lucy. While he did feel sorry for her at first, once he heard about the end result of her bullying he felt sick to his stomach. He avoids interacting or even being near her.
  • Rudolph's not exactly a big fan of bullies due to his own experiences being picked on. He initially frowned at Shoya Ishida and his bullying of his deaf classmate Shoko Nishimiya, as well as distrusting the young Katsuki Bakugo for him picking on the young Izuku Midoriya, which reminded Rudolph of his cousin Arrow. After hearing about the two bullies going through their own major changes, Rudolph tried to interact with them a bit more. Shoya and Shoko are on good terms with the flying deer, though Bakugo wishes not to be pitied by the deer.
  • His journey to the Island of Misfit Toys and meeting its forgotten inhabitants came back to Rudolph's memory when he encountered an equally bizarre group of sentient toys in the Pantheon; led by a cowboy doll named Woody and a spaceman action figure named Buzz Lightyear. The toys had their own experiences with being lost, forgotten and eventually finding new owners, so they connected quickly with the red-nosed reindeer. They even travelled to the island to help other forgotten toys find new owners to play with and cherish.
  • Not long after ascending, Rudolph found friends in the Pantheon's other resident hoofstock. In particular, the white-tailed deer Bambi, former farm cow-turned-reindeer Annabelle, and the Legendary Pokémon, Xerneas, who is sometimes spotted in the forests surrounding the Arctic, its multi-coloured antlers glowing with the aurora borealis. He was also happy to meet the blue-nosed reindeer Tony Chopper, although he was initially weirded out by his small size and strange appearance. All four have come by the North Pole from time to time, with Bambi bringing his own friends, Thumper the rabbit and Flower the skunk, to enjoy the Christmas festivities. They all, however, know to stay away from the ruthless goat Grogar, who isn't quite up for the holiday joy, happiness and... you know, being nice whatsoever.
    • Speaking of deer, Rudolph encountered a strange woman named ViVi, a member of a K-Pop girl group called LOOΠΔ. She was considered an oddball due to her being an android, not to mention being from Hong Kong. Despite this, Rudolph began talking with her, at the urging of her fellow idols. It turned out that she was a friendly individual, even revealing that her symbolic animal was a deer, which made things all the more perfect. From then on out, Rudolph often stops by to check up on the singer and dancer, even inviting her to the North Pole to hang out. On one such occasion, ViVi came over to Rudolph and called him cute. His response was to leap into the air and shout;
    Rudolph: I'm Cute! I'm Cute! She said I'm cute!
  • One time, Rudolph and his friend Frosty the Snowman had a run-in with an evil winter warlock called Winterbolt, who once tried to use them in his plan to destroy Santa. After that, the young reindeer has remained cautious around similar ice-controlling beings, as well as a revived Winterbolt, who continues to haunt the Pantheon. He's wary of Lissandra and The Night's King, both of whom want to plunge the Pantheon into a long and unforgiving winter. To that end, Rudolph found new help with Jon Snow, the former King in the North having a bit of experience in dealing with wights and White Walkers. He also befriended the time-travelling warrior Lucina, following a scenario similar to when the reindeer had to save the New Year.
    • He actually feels sorry for Ice King, however, due to his tragic past. He can't really imagine what it's like to be that insane.
  • Rudolph became good friends with Queen Anna, her older sister Elsa and the living snowman Olaf. The former initially was a tough sell, due to her cryokinetic powers, but then they started talking. He learned of Elsa having to hide her talent under her parent's instructions, just as his parents once did, as well as being ostricized by the public once it was discovered. Elsa often makes it her duty to provide a white Christmas for the Pantheon, and is more than happy to help Rudolph by keeping the worst storms at bay. Anna meanwhile loves to prepare and throw extravagant parties around the holiday season, and she likes to invite Rudolph over to entertain the kids, not to mention giving another reindeer friend to her fiance Kristoff and his faithful caribou Sven. As for Olaf? Rudolph gets along with him because, in a way, he reminds the deer a great deal of Frosty the Snowman.
  • He once had a nasty run-in with the Wendigo, a flesh-eating monster whose sharp teeth and piercing call reminded the buck of the Abominable Snow Monster of the North. Luckily for the reindeer, he was saved by Braum, who reminded Rudolph of Yukon Cornelius. However, after hearing that the Wendigo was actually a girl who was forced to eat her dead sister's body, Rudolph was both saddened and disgusted. He also stays clear of the. Rudolph is also incredibly disturbed by SCP-4666, due to its sadistic brutality towards naughty children, Spooky the ghost, who murdered Santa on one occasion, and Robot Santa, who often attacks people on Christmas regardless if they're naughty or nice.
  • There are many rumours surrounding Rudolph. Some claim to have seen Rudolph shooting laser beams out of his shining red nose, while others heard he was hit by a 747 and a flock of seagulls while flying over Barcelona. Rudolph has denied these claims, citing that the instigators probably drank too much eggnog and just hallucinated it. But eyewitnesses were quick to report that the reindeer in Spain was hit mainly by the plane.

  • There exists a school, Yomiyama North Middle School, in Japan with a very particular classroom; Class 3-3. In 1972, a student of said class named Misaki Yomiyama died in a mysterious house fire. He was so popular among his classmates that they pretended that he was still alive. Sure enough, their graduation photo had Misaki in it. From then on, Class 3-3 was plagued by mysterious cases of sudden and gruesome deaths. A particular student who attended per year would turn out to be someone who doesn't exist with everyone else's memories modified to believe otherwise. The only way to halt the curse every year is to pretend a handpicked student doesn't exist at all or kill the extra if they're discovered, the latter of which was uncovered accidentally by surviving student Katsumi Matsunaga.
  • Mei Misaki was one of the students of Class 3-3 in 1998. Due to her aloof nature and rather unsettling appearance, she was picked to be that year's "extra" student, with the rest of the class (teachers included) refusing to acknowledge her existence to fight the curse off. Still, this didn't faze Mei all that much, even when she met transfer student Kouichi Sakakibara, one of the few to properly acknowledge her existence. Together, after Kouichi learnt of the curse, he and Mei sought to uncover the truth behind the curse and how to put a stop to it. That, and also deal with a new slew of deaths and further suspicion...
  • Mei is one of the few surviving members of Class 3-3 in 1998, alongside Kouichi. Despite this, it's pretty evident that the experience will haunt her and her classmates for the rest of their lives. Fortunately, an audiotape is now hidden in the classroom with the hopes that someone may use it to prevent more casualties from the next generation of students attending Class 3-3. Mei's experience allowed her access in the Pantheon and despite her residing house is rather well-known in the House of Death and Postmortem.
    • A memorial has been erected in the grounds of the House of School to honour those who died because of the curse, staff and family members included. Mei and the other Class 3-3 survivors visit the memorial regularly to pay their respects.
  • Still a teenager, Mei will attend the House of School on a weekly basis. She still sits beside a window in the corner while minding her own business. Unlike Class 3-3, students and teachers aren't bound by the countermeasures to ignore her presence and thus, she's more open to talking. It helps that she's in a normal school with no paranormal activity and that Kouichi and the surviving students are her heralds to attend.
  • Her doll's eye is renowned in the House of Undead and Phasmata as it allows Mei to commune with ghosts and spirits. Despite this, however, she rarely visits that house, given that two of its residential guardians, Nekron and Nagash revel in total destruction and enslavement of the dead. That aside, she's made quick friends with Reimi Sugimoto and Casper the Ghost for being very hospitable and sympathizing with Mei's struggles. Despite her normally solitary nature, Mei is more outspoken when it comes to talking to the dead it seems.
  • Despite her rather creepy appearance, Mei is actually pretty sweet and polite. It just so happens that she's very reserved and quiet about it which makes her unsettling towards others, albeit unintentionally. Her friends, however, get her to emote more often which has been helping Mei out, especially considering her time in the House of School.
    • This led to her having some sort of association with Norman Babcock and Agatha Prenderghast as the two of them were capable of seeing and interacting with the undead, but were also ostracized and mocked for doing so, though they had it more directly in contrast to Mei being ostracized rather indirectly. Regardless of the difference, Mei gets along with them, even when Norman and Agatha were terrified of hearing about the Class 3-3 cases.
  • She often visits the Twins section in the House of Family and Relatives. The reasons behind it are deeply personal, for Mei initially had a twin sister named Fujioka, whom she was very close with. After Mei's aunt Yukiyo miscarried, Mei was given to her to cope with the loss while Fujioka stayed with their birth mother, making them simultaneously twin sisters and cousin. Mei herself was very energetic and extroverted back when she used to play with her sister and Fujioka's sudden death made Mei the quiet and lonely girl that she is now. She is happy to see her twin sister be brought back as a herald. Still, with the events of Class 3-3 still fresh in her mind, Mei no longer meets her sister as often as once did, Survivor Guilt still fresh in her mind.
    • Another frightening factor is that Fujioka was actually the very first victim of the Class 3-3 curse back in 1998, dying of leukemia after a harrowing incident with a Ferris wheel. The fact that Fujioka had attended the same elementary school as Class 3-3 student Takako Sugiura was the reason many of the students were beginning to misinterpret how to deal with the curse. But now that she's back, Fujioka herself really doesn't like talking about it, which Mei can understand, given that she too talks about Class 3-3. Fujioka blames herself for the inn massacre that Takako started due to the identity confusion and made sure to at least make clear to Kouichi and the others that she is Mei's twin sister.
    • Obviously, she is pitied by the rest of the House of Family and Relatives, though that doesn't undermine that Mei will visit it time and again. She and Fujioka visit the Childhood and Adolescence house to make new friends. It helps that her sister is very cheerful and willing to play with any child she comes across while Mei can choose to either play or watch.
  • She was very surprised to hear about a certain personification of Death that stalks and kills survivors in freak accidents in the order that they were meant to die in. Mei is afraid of this Death personification as a result because the way Death kills is eerily similar to the "supposed" freak accidents of the Class 3-3 students, and has been frequently compared with the same. That said, Death isn't going out of its way to kill Mei and her friends. Since they managed to survive by playing with the rules, it'll give them a break. That, and the fact that the next intake of Class 3-3 students is ripe for the taking...
  • In regards to a structured, systematic way of killing people, there's also Junko Enoshima and Monokuma. However, unlike Class 3-3 which is still a curse with little background information and Death killing survivors because of its vengeful nature, Junko not only kills but also wants to torture and psychologically break students for the hell of it and to wash off any semblance of hope. This also involved Makoto Naegi, who had a particular knack of inspiring hope to others as a counter. As a result, Makoto has shown himself to be a good role model for Mei, often giving encouraging advice and even cheering her up in ways very few could do. This doesn't bode well for Junko who wants to use Fujioka and the Class 3-3 experience to torment Mei if and when she feels like it.
    • Despite the above, Death of the Endless appears to be rather sympathetic to Mei's plight. To Mei's surprise, this iteration of Death is upbeat, affable and somewhat sarcastic, which caught Mei a little off-guard. She did, however, express some sympathy for the deaths of the Class 3-3 students as well and has made a promise to Mei that she'll personally try to meet up with the deceased students in the afterlife and try to make amends and provide them with something to make up for it. If more Class 3-3 students ascend, she might even be able to make them the heralds of said students.
  • Her ability to see ghosts led Mei to make acquaintances with Malcolm Crowe. Crowe himself was intrigued, yet somewhat disturbed by the events and circumstances of Class 3-3 and thanks to his experiences with Cole Sear, he's opted to see if he can provide Mei and her friends some kind of mental aid. Carol Anne is another person that Mei was able to talk to regarding ghosts. She's invited Fujioka over to the Storytelling Sub-House to give Carol-Anne company and someone to play with after learning of the trauma the little girl had to go through regarding ghosts.
  • While trotting around the House of Life and Death, Mei also came across Misao, who was minding her own business and initially wanted to keep her distance. But after finding out about how Misao was bullied, killed and eventually came to curse her school, Mei became very mellow towards her. She related to her in how lonely she herself felt until she met Kouichi and made an attempt to befriend her, which Misao respected. They're known to meet up with one another every once in a while with Mei trying to get Misao to meet up with her own friends.

  • Not To Be Mistaken With: (Insert Name Here)
  • Complicated Relationship With: His Narrator
  • Stanley is an employee in a big building whose job consists of pushing buttons on a keyboard, with the orders given to him through his monitor. He did this task every day, but Stanley was happy doing his job. One day, the orders stopped coming through his monitor, and everybody in his workplace had seemingly vanished. Stanley exited his office and set out to investigate what caused this strange event. Meanwhile, a near omniscient narrator narrates everything he does and tells him what to do next. Will Stanley follow the narrator's instructions and uncover the truth or will Stanley ignore him and go Off the Rails?
    • Why exactly were his co-workers missing? Did The Narrator erase them all to tell his story and help set free Stanley from his office? Did they ever exist in the first place when the story was created? Was the whole game merely an imagination of Stanley's to get away from his boring monotonous life? What's going on in Stanley's world anyway? Is it a looping hallucination caused by Stanley's anxieties? Is Stanley just another video game character who may or may not be created by The Narrator himself? If so, did the Narrator create Stanley as a companion when he was lonely? Given how the other endings sometimes acknowledge the existence of other paths, all of Stanley's paths could be true at the same time.
  • Stanley accidentally wandered into the Pantheon after opening and entering a random door in the office. He found himself in the House of Gaming but there were no deities in sight when he arrived. Stanley was later found exploring the Halls by some deities who were coming home after a big party. They had taken him to The Court of Gods to be deified after Stanley failed to follow their advice on where to go next. Stanley wanted to be the God of Button Pushing, but no such trope or hall existed, so he was initially assigned to represent Action Commands as that's the closest trope The Court could find for him. However, a few deities contested his title as Action Commands require dealing with timed button presses and Stanley doesn't deal with that situation in all his paths. The Court later assigned Stanley to represent Being Unexpectedly Abandoned after observing that despite his varying paths and endings, he always starts alone in his office.
  • His relationship with the Narrator is a complicated one. Sometimes he is just a neutral observer narrating Stanley's life, sometimes they don't get along when Stanley decides to ignore him and makes his own path, and sometimes they get along when strange things happen. The Narrator has even killed Stanley a few times. The Narrator followed Stanley into the Pantheon and was deified around the same time as him. He follows him around the Houses, narrating what Stanley does. Occasionally, Stanley can separate from him and explore on his own before The Narrator finds him again.
  • Because Stanley's whole purpose was to push buttons, he is very happy when he does have the opportunity to do so. Stanley's temple is a replica of his old office with a button on his computer taking him to his Heaven Room, a tubular room filled with lots of colorful buttons. Stanley is also friendly with Dee Dee since she also has a tendency to push buttons. She often visits his temple since she is amazed by the amount of buttons Stanley has in his Heaven Room.
  • He at first was hesitant to talk or approach any Narrators, probably because he is very tired of being continuously told what to do. He gets along with The Storyteller rather well, considering he doesn't want to tell a story at the expense of others. He also gets along with a space bear named Honey Hug; though he's a bit more eccentric than his own Narrator, Stanley doesn't mind his strangeness as he's used to that during his adventures. One narrator who seems to pity the poor Stanley was Lemony Snicket. He pities Stanley because he finds the Narrator's treatment of him a bit cruel sometimes and doesn't get along with his Narrator as a result. Stanley feels that Snicket's style of narration could be more harmful to him considering his retelling of the Baudeliares story, so he kindly asked him to not retell any of his stories.
  • After his new Trope assignment, Stanley finds himself alone in his temple and his entire Hall from time to time. Occasionally, he meets other deities with similar experiences as him. For example, SpongeBob recalls the time when he woke up to find everyone in Bikini Bottom has disappeared. Turns out, the whole town created a holiday just to get away from him for a day (which later turned into weeks). Stanley befriends SpongeBob due to his friendly nature. Other deities shared their stories of finding themselves to be alone with Stanley but all of them are glad to not be in the same situation as him.
  • Stanley, in a way, is not fond of people that control others for pure entertainment. The Mob, for example, is a case where there is a controlling entity that may be arguably worse than the Narrator and doesn't know what to do half the time. He sympathizes with Red because of that. He also deeply values his freedom; he was horrified to know that his office had a Mind Control Facility and he couldn't accept the possibility that the only reason he's content with his boring job was because someone else was controlling him. As such, he despises most mind manipulating deities; though thankfully none of them see any use for Stanley himself. He's also opposed Nerose given that he imposes happiness onto other people at the cost of their free will. Despite that, Stanley himself has thought about wanting the power to control minds. However, given how he vaguely remembers that backfiring on him the last time he tried to have that power for himself, he's refrained from trying again as long as the Narrator still watches him.
  • He shouldn't be confused with (Insert Name Here); though one can be forgiven the confusion as even The Narrator can confuse the two. Both tend to disobey orders, something the game program Game can attest regarding to his User's hardheadedness. The main difference is that INH can make their own choices while Stanley is bound to the paths given to him. Stanley is a bit conflicted towards INH; he doesn't want to be controlled by anyone, but at the same time he literally cannot move without INH's help.
  • Stanley is not the only deity stalked by a Narrator; he also learned that Naughty Bear has that same situation as well. While Stanley does have an amicable relationship with Naughty, he does distrust his narrator, mostly because he seems to be the force that pushes Naughty into slaughtering his foes, not to mention he also is a seemingly Evil Brit. He also gets along with ICEY, who was also being forced into the plot by her Narrator and notes the similarities of some of the paths they have taken. The difference is that ICEY has her own abilities (something Stanley was a bit jealous of) and that she's more infatuated with INH than he is. Another deity he befriended was Diogenes, a fellow plain-looking guy who has a Narrator following him as he's climbing up the mountain. Diogenes pities Stanley for his situation with his Narrator, while Stanley respects Diogenes for his feats on top of having to put up with his Narrator.
  • Being someone who has to deal with a cruel Game Master (and deliberately derails his campaign because of it), Old Man Henderson has encouraged Stanley to do whatever he wants and that he should refuse to listen to the Narrator. Stanley has faint memories of doing exactly what Henderson told him, which various degrees of success. On a related note: Apparently, the Defenders of the Ancient also had to deal with The Narrator constantly pestering them with his narration, so they do understand how Stanley might feel when having to deal with him.
  • The House of Time and Temporality seems to be in awe about Stanley's situation. He and the Narrator are bound to endlessly repeat their story over and over again with no clear reason why. The Narrator does have some faint memories about some of the events and endings but doesn't quite exactly recall the events. Stanley also has a similar experience of vaguely remembering the different paths. In fact, this very profile might be reset after its completion and Stanley may once again be put back in his office.
    • Due to his situation, he sought the help of Phil Connors, who was once stuck in a time loop himself. However, despite their best attempts to break Stanley's cycle, they have been unsuccessful so far. He also gets along with Stefan Butler, someone who was also stuck in a time loop and being controlled by someone much like him and ICEY. Given that they are also known for their branching paths with wildly varying endings, he gets along pretty well with Henry Stickmin, regardless of which version of the stickperson Stanley is dealing with.
  • Seeing as it's unlikely he would get his old job back, Stanley tried to look for a new office job in the Pantheon. He found himself employed by Michael Scott for some of his businesses. Michael may not be the best boss in the whole Pantheon but he's very good at his job as a manager. However, while he has his nice guy moments, Michael's self-centeredness at the expense of his co-workers caused the two to butt heads with each other from time to time. Stanley's more friendly with Ted the Generic Guy, who is also a generic office worker. Stanley pities Ted for the number of times he's been fired or killed for random reasons.
  • Stanley once tried to go for some achievements in the office, starting by clicking on Door 430 five times. The Narrator was unsatisfied with how easy it is to get this achievement, so he made Stanley go around the office clicking lots of things as one of the rare times Stanley followed his instructions. Stanley also got an achievement after failing to jump and playing the game for an entire Tuesday. Stanley respects The Blue Elephant for its desire to look for more achievements and once tried to bring it to his office to see what more achievements it can find and complete.
  • Stanley once was transported to different game worlds in one of the paths where he disobeyed The Narrator and disapproved of his game revisions to suit Stanley's liking. This information surprised his fellow silent allies Gordon, Chell, Steve and Alex (whose worlds Stanley visited) shortly after befriending them. Stanley relates to Gordon on being forced into a life-changing event and to Chell for wanting to be free against an overbearing voice. Meanwhile, he envies Steve and Alex a bit since they have more freedom in their world. Stanley has also visited the worlds of Rocket League and Firewatch.
  • Stanley has a knack for finding glitches; whether it's from trying to climb out the office window to get out of bounds or trying to climb over a railing to get to the bottom of the Mind Control Facility. He's acquainted with Vinny as a result due to his glitching powers. It helps that Vinny has played Stanley's game before. He's also acquainted with PewDiePie given that he also played his game and helped popularized it to the masses.
  • The Narrator implores the other deities to not tell Stanley about any Broom Closets within their Halls. The last time he encountered a Broom Closet, he stood there for about 10 hours for some unexplained reason. On an unrelated note: After some time, Stanley bought his comfort bucket the Narrator provided him to his temple. Unfortunately, he became too emotionally attached to the Bucket that The Narrator had to hire some outside help to take it away from him. This Bucket now resides in The Great Treasury.

    Robinson Crusoe

  • Robinson Crusoe has lived a life of adventure, not necessarily willingly, since entering adulthood. It started when he decided to set out to sea and see the world against the wishes of his father, who would rather Crusoe take a desk job. From the start, Crusoe's luck on ships wasn't the best and his very first voyage ended with the ship sinking in a storm, but he survived and made it to his country. On his second voyage, he was captured by Salé pirates and sold as a slave to a Moor. Crusoe escaped two years later with the help of a kind Portuguese captain, who took Crusoe to Brazil in a surprisingly uneventful voyage. In Brazil, Crusoe started a plantation. Deciding he needed slaves to work it for him, he set out on another voyage to Africa to purchase them, but once again his bad luck at sea reared its head and he found himself stranded on a deserted island as the only survivor of a shipwreck. Crusoe lived off what he could salvage of the wreckage and what the island gave him. Over 20 years passed before he interacted with another human being; a native that Crusoe saved from a tribe of cannibals and dubbed Friday, who became Crusoe's loyal servant out of gratitude. Some time afterwards, an English ship appeared and Crusoe helped its captain quash a mutiny, after which the captain brought Crusoe, alongside Friday, back to England.
  • In truth, Crusoe went through many more adventures in his life (to the point that Friday died in one of them), but none became as famous as his stranding on a deserted island, starting a subgenre of stories bearing Crusoe's own name. With that in mind, it was only appropriate to have him represent such stories in the Pantheon. Crusoe was honored to have such an incumbency and made sure to bring up his man Friday (who died in one of Crusoe's later adventures) so he could serve him as in the old days. However, this proved to be a point of contention among many in the Pantheon, who believe Crusoe needs to check his outdated views and call out his treatment of Friday as condescending at best. Realizing that the Pantheon has a very different culture than what he's used to, Crusoe responded by simply taking Friday and permanently retired to the deserted island designated as his temple, thus ensuring he lives according to his title and what made him famous.
  • The one who took Crusoe on his one-way trip to his island was Long John Silver. Crusoe is no fan of pirates (they sold him into slavery after all), but he thought he might have an understanding with Silver for the right price, and due to Silver being roughly contemporaneous with him. Crusoe being quite rich and not finding much need for his wealth while living off the land, Silver got a tidy sum from him that he won't forget. Whether this strength of memory is good news or bad news for Crusoe remains to be seen, but Crusoe made sure to bring plenty of firepower along so as to defend himself from any undesirable visitors on the island, which could very well mean Silver himself if he ever thinks he can stand to profit from what Crusoe produces there. Fortunately for Crusoe, that hasn't been the case so far; seems like pirates prefer much more direct means of acquiring wealth.
  • Despite his outdated views, his status as an iconic, trope-founding deity means he is held in some level of reverence, especially from the deities who've gone through similar survival situations. Many of them have paid their respects by going to his island and living there for a while, on their own means and without his help, of course. Wilson, Bear Grylls and Steve and Alex have all done this. Crusoe found Wilson to be quite enjoyable and stimulating company due to the latter's intellectual inclinations, but couldn't say the same of Grylls and his insistence in sharing tips for survival, most of which Crusoe found strange and unnecessary, even thinking some of them were below what a savage would do (he's thinking specifically of the piss-drinking in this case). A more annoying pair of visitors proved to be Miguel and Tulio, who didn't even go to the island on purpose, but ended up shipwrecked there. As they constantly cracked wise and dug up the whole place for gold, Crusoe felt they could not leave fast enough.
  • A visitor that proved to have much in common with Crusoe was Lemuel Gulliver, who was also struck by wanderlust in his youth and went on many sea voyages that usually ended in shipwrecks and him stranded someplace strange. Gulliver saw many fantastical things that would never exist in Crusoe's world, but Gulliver also sank into misanthropy because of them, which is probably the biggest difference between the two men. But despite Gulliver's affliction, he does not disdain Crusoe and indeed seems to think he's an exception among humans, partly because they've had similar experiences, partly because Crusoe chose to live in his island, away from most people, after ascending. Crusoe cannot relate to Gulliver's misanthropy, having met too many good people who helped him, but he won't antagonize Gulliver over it, thinking it'll only make things worse, and hopes he'll change his mind someday.
  • Sinbad has become a regular visitor to the island, as a result of his frequent voyages in search of adventure and fortune. After being made a slave in the Middle East, Crusoe was very suspicious of Sinbad, thinking he might want to capture him and/or Friday and sell them, but Sinbad proved to be very respectful of Crusoe's status as ruler of the island and gave him many gifts to prove it, which made Crusoe relax somewhat. At length, they talked to each other about their adventures and bonded over them. Sinbad promised he'd come bearing gifts whenever he needed to stop by Crusoe's island, which was certainly to his liking as it would provide a break from the island's menu. Sinbad has so far kept his word. Sometimes it also happens that Sinbad is the victim of a shipwreck and he is lucky to wash up in Crusoe's island, with Crusoe giving him due care, which helps further solidify their friendship.
  • Ben Cameron, a pro-slavery Confederate soldier, proved to be a staunch defender of Crusoe's relationship with Friday, claiming they're a perfect example of harmony between master and slave and that Crusoe is heroic for successfully turning a "savage" to the light of Christianity. Cameron made a point of visiting Crusoe on his island and expressed his admiration for the life Crusoe had made for himself and how it showed Crusoe to be a man of true character. While Crusoe appreciates anyone who understands him, he's not so sure about this KKK operation that Cameron runs, feeling they are excessively severe in their treatment of black people. Crusoe is quite sure he wants nothing to do with such radicality and told Cameron all he wanted was to be left alone and live in peace with Friday, although Cameron was welcome to visit whenever he wished. Cameron was disappointed, but could respect Crusoe's wishes.
  • Crusoe believes in pro-colonialist ideals espoused by such people as Ratcliffe and Quaritch, but again given his intention to live in his island in peace and quiet, it doesn't look like he will act on those beliefs any time soon. He does pay lip service to them, saying Ratcliffe and Quaritch are only well-intentioned men trying to spread civilization and enlightenment in the remote and savage corners of existence. At the same time, Crusoe finds the cases of Pocahontas and Tarzan to be fascinating, the former being a Native American who got deeply involved with colonizers and the latter a white man who was raised by African gorillas. Crusoe condescendingly sees them as "good savages" who could acclimate easily to English civilization and set an example for their brethren, perhaps not realizing that they're not interested in that and are happy just as they are.
  • Crusoe initially didn't know what to make of it when one Alan Yates came into his island requesting to film his daily life with Friday, with emphasis on the latter. Eventually a distressed Friday came to Crusoe, saying Yates had been randomly killing animals and trying to convince him to kill his master and eat him, arguing that befit Friday's true savage self. Crusoe was outraged and chased Yates and his crew out of his island at gunpoint. On further learning of Yates' activities, Crusoe could only feel disgust for him and pity for the tribe the filmmaker committed such heinous deeds against. Crusoe thinks cannibalism is abhorrent and an act that goes against God, but he has made a conscious decision to refrain from actually doing anything to stop such tribes from engaging in their customs, as revolting as he finds them. This is because during his time on the island, he came to think that it's not his place to pass judgement, and that God would do so in time. This doesn't mean he hasn't fought the cannibals sometimes to save their victims, mainly because Crusoe thought he could make use of the survivors' feelings of gratitude; that's how Friday came to be in his service. At any rate, all this leaves Crusoe with no doubt that Yates is a much viler human being than any cannibal tribes, who, in Crusoe's view, simply don't know any better.
  • Grew to be very religious during his time on the island, after he almost succumbed to a fever. He believes that, under the circumstances, he ought to be grateful to God for humbling him, sparing his life and providing him with all he needed to survive on his own for so long. He can be rather reserved towards priests visiting him to praise his devotion, because so many of the ascended ones are Catholic, which Crusoe is wary of as he desires neither their retaliation or attempts at conversion, but he manages to be polite to them at least. He's also wary of the presence of many beings (The Love that Moves the Stars and YHVH, among others) that claim to be the God he worships, thinking he can never truly know which one, if any, is the right one and which ones are trying to lead him astray. He's content to pray from the relative safety of his island instead of going to meet any of them.

  • Rynn Jacobs initially appears to be an average 13 year-old-girl who has taken residence in Wells Harbor, Maine, although it is noted that she has a famous father named Lester, who happens to be a popular poet. However, this is far from the truth; Rynn actually lives in a rather large house all by herself, something that she is more than content with and whenever questioned about her father's presence, Rynn claims that he is away in a business trip or is too busy in his work whenever she gets a phone call regarding Lester. Furthering the mysterious nature of Rynn is how she doesn't attend school and having a mature and self-assuring, yet sardonic and uncompromising attitude towards her guests, which catches the attention of landlady Cora Hallet and her son, Frank, who turns out to be a lecherous pest who makes unwanted sexual advances on Rynn. One day, a visit from Cora goes awry when she ends up killing herself by accident, creating a complicated issue for Rynn. Sometime later, she came across a stage magician named Mario, whom she quickly came to appreciate and befriend and Mario even got to defend Rynn against Frank when he made a reappearance. As Rynn and Mario began to develop romantic feelings for one another, the former confides that she accidentally killed her mother whilst serving her tea and that Lester committed suicide in the sea so that his body wouldn't be discovered, though not before making arrangements for Rynn to live in a solitary household. Additionally, Rynn's mother was also abusive, and Lester didn't want his daughter to live with her, which is why he also handed Rynn a jar of potassium cyanide, claiming that it was a sedative meant to calm Rynn's mother down. However, whilst trying to bury Cora's corpse on a rainy day and as winter approaches, Mario fell ill from pneumonia and was kept in the hospital, leaving Rynn on her own to deal with the sudden appearance from Frank later in the night. Frank managed to learn that his mother was killed and decided to use circumstantial evidence to allow him to trap Rynn into becoming his Sex Slave partly out of revenge for his mother's death and for his own perverted desires. Rynn prepared some tea for him and herself, with Rynn's having had potassium cyanide added in. Before taking a sip, Frank decided to switch the cups, unknowing taking and drinking the poisoned cup.
  • What's happened next regarding Rynn so far has been left unsaid; the only thing confirmed was that Frank Hallet was poisoned to death with his last words murmuring about Rynn's facial features while she stood with a blank stare for what seemed like minutes. With the story having an abrupt end, Rynn was someone whom many were were unsure about, given that no one was really familiar with her and it's just as unlikely that Rynn would be trusting anyone either way, though Mario proved to be an odd exception. On a further note, Rynn's presence in the Pantheon has been another question for the presiding deities; how did she exactly find a way to ascend, and whether she was perfectly fine with now having a place in a wholly fantastical setting. The first sightings of Rynn were simply her taking a casual stroll around a street and coast that she was familiar with, with some speculating that a part of Wells Harbor is a part of her domain, in addition to her household. When confronted by the matter, Rynn stated that she simply received a letter that told her about the Pantheon and how that she was given the position of being the Goddess of Minors Living Alone. She initially scoffed at the meaning, that was until she saw a bunch of portals opening up and she wanted to investigate, only to back away after seeing what she could describe as a bunch of knights as if they were really coming out of the middle ages. Even after being convinced of the Pantheon's existence, Rynn chose to seclude herself, thinking that it's best she tends to her independence and her household for the time being... for now.
  • Rynn is one of the more mysterious and complicated cases of a child deity in the Pantheon. While she has proven herself to be rather polite and in control of her surroundings whenever she has to tend to visitors and guests, the fact that she lives all by herself with hardly any supervision was not lost by those who had known her for quite some time. That said, Rynn herself took to learning about the new realm in which she was a part of as quickly as she could, though she was conflicted in whether she should affirm her independence and autonomy or if she should relent to some degree and see to getting some sort of help from others, as much as she isn't too fond of that idea. She's aware that there are a huge number of malicious deities in the Pantheon who would likely see her as an easy target, which made Rynn admit that yes, she would be needing someone of company to look after her. She didn't like the notion, given that she valued her independence, but she quickly realized that she could only do so much as a child.
  • On an external level, Rynn may look innocent, if a little aloof, but many do not realize the fact that she is actually a very shrewd, manipulable, and verbally abrasive girl who doesn't take no to an answer when it comes to her wants and desires, especially if her residence and independence is concerned. Her own seclusive nature meant that not many know her all that well. That said, Rynn isn't antisocial nor does she exhibit any malicious intent, even if she comes off as pretty un-childlike. She communicates well enough with those she comes into contact with and maintains an eloquent demeanor and tone of voice which doesn't sound forced. As usual, she uses the same tactic as she did to explain why she's home alone, though a few deities have gotten a little suspicious about her.
  • Has a strong association with poisons, namely cyanide, and how she would lace them into tea, in addition to the mention of cyanide tasting like Bitter Almonds. That said, Rynn doesn't express any comfort or pride in said association and would rather put some distance from the Hall of Toxicity after giving it one visitnote , feeling that such a place was simply a bore to her and there wasn't much to explore to anyway, not to mention the Hall has a bad name in general. Of course, few actually know that she killed her mother with poisoned tea, though Rynn didn't know during that time that she served cyanide-laced tea, and the cyanide itself was planted by her father, who didn't want Rynn to be living with an Abusive Parent like her mother. She still serves tea to her guests, though without any poisoning and it's come to be a notable trait for her. As for those who are aware of her actions, Rynn doesn't have any intent on killing them, unless they become too nosy and obstructive towards her independence, as Frank Hallet can attest to. Fortunately, her guests have been hospitable and Rynn hasn't really generated any hard suspicions beyond her unusual independence, so she's feeling as if the Pantheon has been a rather quiet, if fun, experience.
  • Rynn's desire for independence is so potent that she even refuses to take part in conventional schooling, instead choosing to homeschool herself, believing that enrolling in one would hamper her ability to manage and determine her lifestyle and habits. She is, however, a very well-educated, well-read, and intuitive girl and many would be surprised by how much she knows, especially in writing and literature, as her father was a poet and she can vividly transcribe and readout works towards others, though she personally admits that she really isn't into reading works. The House of School found Rynn's seclusiveness to be very weird and jarring, partly because of her precocious age and partly because they find it difficult to realize why would an intelligent and gifted girl like Rynn not take any interest in schooling. Some efforts were taken by staff members, particularly Eikichi Onizuka, to reach out to Rynn. She surprisingly likes Onizuka for his determined nature and even allows him to enter her household either as a guest or as a private teacher, but affirms her point in not wanting to join the Elysium Academy. Onizuka decided not to press her further, even when he became one of the few to learn about Rynn's dark secrets, in which he decided that it would be best if he doesn't frustrate Rynn into becoming hostile towards him, in addition to valuing his respect towards Rynn.
  • Among those who are very adamant about their independence, Rynn, although a standout example given her own representation in the Pantheon, is surprisingly rather light in her scope and scale. While others have thought about why Rynn doesn't extend her reaches in the Pantheon to other, more expansive and wondrous places that would benefit with her own solitarity, Rynn justifies herself by stating that it's her home in which she feels best in and that as the sole occupant of itnote , she has a responsibility to look after and tend to her home, and she will live up to that objective. That said, she does have a growing list of friends, and Rynn is thinking that in case she wants to have long-distance travel, she could contact her friends and arrange a date where they could look after her home while she has her travels. Her affable demeanor has won some trust, and Rynn is confident that she's going to be needing it.
    • Rynn once stumbled across the Sector V Kids Next Door Operatives during a regular stroll in the Pantheon. The kids claimed to be fighting against growing up and evil teens and adults, in addition to claiming that they live by themselves, though it turned out that they do have families that they attend with and love, something that Rynn found somewhat emotional as she misses her father. When asked about her mother, Rynn avoids the questions with blunt answers for obvious reasons. She finds the kids humorous due to their imaginative, yet insanely childish nature, but felt that they were decent people overall. The Kids Next Door, in turn, didn't mind Rynn, despite barely being a teenager, as she didn't really pose any sense of opposition and was open to simply hanging out with them, though she's not interested in inviting them over to her house as she feels as if they would want to make battle plans there, something that she certainly wouldn't appreciate.
  • Rynn isn't the only child who lives all by herself, and she's all too aware of this fact. However, she does know that because of her position, she is the most well-known individual about this trait, though Rynn personally sees this as a cheaply sympathizing attempt to hold up in some regard in the Pantheon. That said, she doesn't mind those who were in a similar predicament as she way, as demonstrated by Shinon Asada, a renowned player for Gun Gale Online who resided in her own apartment, having to own up to her expenses, and, like Rynn herself, was a target from someone malicious. Still, Shinon thinks that Frank, as bad and lecherous as he was, pales in comparison to Death Gun, who tried to make an attempt to kill Shinon to sate his thirst of being a Serial Killer. Given her unfamiliarity with video games, Rynn was a little confused by Shinon's experience but agreed that the latter must have had a terrible experience. The two ended up getting along really well, though Rynn has not really expressed interest in meeting up with Shinon's friends and loved ones, particularly Kirito and Asuna as she doesn't want her own autonomy to be too hampered by an increasing list of people who personally know her. Shinon has since not pressed on to that matter.
    • Ashley and Kevin McCallister were two other children who resided on their own, though in Kevin's case, he actually lives with his family, but got separated from them in two occasions. That said, Ashley does desire companionship and, while usually stoic and emotionless, is rather passionate about what she desires, whereas Kevin got his chance to be alone in his household and while he did enjoy his independence, he also learned to value his family deeply as well as fend for himself against a pair of thieves known as the Wet Bandits during Christmas time. Rynn finds both of them to be of nice company, though she can find Kevin's antics to be a little annoying and sometimes a bit much given how chaotic he can get. Knowing how lonely she was since her parents' deaths, Rynn tries to be a presence for Ashley and provide her social support whenever possible, with Ashley even being an invitee to Rynn's house, whereas Kevin feels as if he can takes notes from Rynn regarding how to better talk to strangers and visitors and dissuading them from intruding further, though Rynn insists that she can't do that forever, as well as the fact that while Kevin's antics are destructive, Rynn's methods of handling her aggressors are more subtle but also sometimes lethal. She wants to make sure that Kevin doesn't notes from her on how to kill people due to the suspicions that could come out from that, due to Rynn's own experiences on that matter.
  • The House of Family and Relatives express some interest when it came to Rynn, her parents, and the circumstances that she has been living under, although it's noted that not many of them are fond or approving of this fact, considering that Rynn is a very secretive girl and prefers to rather tell others off if she ever feels as if someone is intruding on her home, life, or independence. The Heroic Protectors of Family have actually learned of the reasons why Rynn's parents aren't around and pay their condolences to her troubles, though she's not wholly buying it. That said, Rynn doesn't mind the House's benevolent residents too much, given that most of them are rather more appreciative of her life choices. She, for one, is open to keeping up on good terms with them as she got to learn of the Pantheon's fantastical nature more and more over time.
  • She's well aware of the fact that she isn't the only deity to have lost her parents nor the only one to have killed a parent, intentional or otherwise. It's how Rynn was able to fairly understand those who've undergone similar circumstances and how those events have led them to be all on their own, though unlike them, Rynn was actively entrusted by her father to take of their household and not to let anyone uproot and take it over them, something which she's held on to with a hard grip. She found some comfort in hanging out with the Baudelaire Orphans, who lost their own parents to a great housefire and had to contend having to be looked after by a malicious, uncaring caretaker who wanted to steal their fortune for himself. Violet and Klaus were initially a little hesitant about Rynn's unchildlike behavior but eventually warmed up to her as she was willing to give them company and that Sunny generally enjoyed being in Rynn's presence. The Baudelaires are some of the few people that Rynn generally likes and have proven an exception from her reclusive nature in that she is willing to be in their presence and vice-versa.
  • Oddly enough, Rynn ended up establishing ties with Madotsuki, if mainly because the two of them have a shared trait of being socially seclusive to themselves and tend to not involve themselves too much on the outside, though Madotsuki is an extreme example thanks to her being in a dream-like state. They're also very protective of a possession, with Rynn valuing her home and general independence above everything else, and Madotsuki being very protective of her dream journal. Normally, Rynn would want to get along with her, but her destructive nature and powers, if rattled, have unnerved Rynn. She does sympathize with Madotsuki and would like to socialize with her, but she's hesitant on how to handle her if they meet, as Rynn clearly doesn't want to set Madotsuki off, given how she is capable of laying waste to the dream world (and Rynn herself) if ever angered.
  • Rynn's experience with the Hallets has left a lot warier about estate holders and managers, though she is lucid enough to know that not everyone is the same as Cora and Frank, though because she doesn't have a high opinion about how others would react to the fact that Rynn's parents are actually dead, she isn't too trusting of any of them in general. One such figure that she came to oppose was Count Olaf, which came naturally after learning about him through her friendship with the Baudelaires. Rynn was lucid and alert enough to be able to see through Olaf's attempt to con and bribe her on the few times they've met, and Rynn personally sees him as an irritation, much to Olaf's dismay. The Child Abuse Supporters were a more serious case as, due to their larger infamy and their track record in abusive parenting, Rynn tends to do whatever she can to not get their attention, especially considering that her own mother wasn't any better. On another note, Rynn also steers clear of sex offenders, if her experience with Frank has taught her enough, though Rynn has plans thought out in case someone wanted to invade her privacy and independence.
    • One authority figure that caught Rynn's attention was Salad Fingers, a figure who survived a post-apocalyptic world with a twisted appearance, most notably two elongated fingers and his sanity having eroded enough for him to interpret things very differently, namely seeing real people as imaginary. Rynn found his predicament rather sad and felt that she could visit his domain a bit more than usual, in spite of its depressing nature. Her appearances have helped in giving Salad Fingers some sense of company, considering he too lived on his own and he turned out to be a decent caretaker and overall nice person in spite of his freaky appearance. That, and Rynn finds some of his antics to be a bit funny, while Salad Fingers saw Rynn in an oddly imaginary sense, though she came to not mind it all that much.

  • Zac Hobson is a scientist who was working on something known as "Project Flashlight", an experiment with the intent to create a wireless global energy grid. One day, on July 5th, he woke up to discover something incredibly fishy; that there was nobody to talk to or communicate with, no matter where he went or who he tried to call. After a bit of exploring as well as seemingly completing Project Flashlight, he becomes disturbingly convinced that he may be the last man on Planet Earth in an event he dubs "The Event", causing him to break into a mansion and undergo sudden mood and personality alterations in trying to cope with being all alone, resulting in a lot of ludicrous actions and performances. Things would begin to look up for Zac as he encounters a woman named Joanne and a Māori named Api, which would give him a sense of companionship, although this would be complicated by them developing a Love Triangle, with Zac and Api vying for Joanne's affection, even if the former remained committed to his scientific observations and generally kept to himself. He discovers that the Sun is becoming unstable and that a "Second Effect" may happen and goes back to his working base to check on the Flashlight Grid, which he thought was responsible for destabilizing the sun. He works with Joanne and Api to destroy the grid and although the increasing levels of ionizing radiation proved a dangerous obstacle, Zac went through with knocking down the grid and causing an explosion just before the "Second Effect" takes place.
  • What happened to Zac isn't entirely known, but the last known act was of him waking up to what appeared to be a beach and overlooking a wave of waterspouts and the emergence of a ringed planet where the Sun would usually arise. With the absence of Joanne and Api, it seemed that Zac truly did become the last living person in existence. After a beautiful, yet despairing sight and a bewildered expression from Zac, his tale was left on a blank note. At least until his presence became known in the Pantheon and even then, it isn't known just how much time Zac had spent all by himself before he came into contact with another human (or humanoid?), with the man being even more surprised by the fact that he just went from being a sole remnant of humanity to being a representative of a greater world as a "deity". At the very least, he's fine with the fact that he's no longer alone, but his experiences have certainly left him with mental scars and a changed man after "The Effect" took place.
  • It didn't take long for Zac to have a relationship with the House of Science, mainly due to his past occupation as a scientist, but even then, he feels a bit weary and anxious about how to bring himself up to talk about the circumstances he's been through. And despite his efforts in trying to provide a new source of energy, he also feels that he might end up condemned by those who would think that he's responsible for the world's end, something that Zac personally feels uncertain and very guilty of at the same time. Fortunately, despite his own vices, he was given some degree of sympathy due to his time being alone for so long, which would inevitably play a role in his loosening sanity, and given he doesn't bear any ill will, he's welcome to be an honorary member of the House. To his credit, Zac did come to like a couple of scientists, such as Dexter, Senku Ishigami, Flint Lockwood, and Ludwig von Drake thanks to their efforts in using their scientific minds and talents for the benefit of others and he personally feels that he might try to learn a thing or two for them. Also, their levels of eccentricity flatter Zac to an extent as it makes him feel a little more normal in comparison, though he doesn't mean any ill will towards them either.
  • He tried to commit suicide by overdosing on pills. This was because he was getting convinced that Protect Flashlight would be a failure, rendering his efforts to be All for Nothing, leading to depression and lacking in his success and self-esteem. Little did he know that his suicide attempt was what brought him to the whole "no humans left" predicament aside from Joanne and Api, and that was because those two were concurrently dying around the same time as Zac did. Despite this, Zac is rather hesitant to visit the House of Despondency, feeling that dwelling back on his days as the supposed last man isn't going to help him out and that it would be for the best to avoid facing despair again as he did in his second, albeit more heroic, suicide attempt leading him to a supposedly abstract setting with Saturn seeming to act in place of the Sun as Earth's major satellite. This led to some commonality with Victor Frankenstein, whose own monstrous creation led to Victor's tragedy, Sanity Slippage, and death, with Zac feeling that with how events turned out for Victor, he might have had it a bit better, not that it assuages his own turmoil one bit. For now, Zac and Victor have settled for being on speaking terms, hoping that having some a little relatable in regards to company could probably help them out.
  • "The Effect" must have been a harrowing experience, as Zac would explain it. Imagine dying, or being on the cusp of death, only to find yourself in a world where you're the only living being left. And perhaps doing it again might lead you to an entirely different world, but either way, the end results were never pretty. Although Zac would later learn that dying and coming back to a new world isn't exactly a novel concept in the Pantheon, his predicament still remains one of the more distinctive ones, and feels that the rest likely would have ended up with a better setting to deal with. Of course, there's also dying and coming back in the current world, but Zac still feels that that would be a better fate, unless you were a monster. On another note, he finds the idea of Isekai to be a rather bizarre, if interesting one, feeling that there might be some kind of link between dying and a transfer to another realm, even if he feels explaining this is going to be difficult. He's even considered asking about the matter to whatever deities went through such, and though Subaru and Rimuru might be worth conversing with regarding experiences in this, it's best that he rather let Kazuma just hang out with his entourage after learning just how bonkers and zany their adventures and hijinks could get.
  • "The Event" may also hold an alternate theory that instead of the dying being somehow taken to another world or setting, it saves them instead, only to wipe out the remainder of the world's population, rendering them in similarly dark and isolated settings to death with. Whatever way, Zac simply didn't take his situation well, even shortly after he found survivors to converse and spend time with. When it came to something like this, he found two figures that directly played responsibility for such in a twisted play to fulfill their dark goals; AM and the Army of the 12 Monkeys. Needless to say, both terrified Zac, with the former being a sadistic AI who sought nothing but to enforce a lifetime of suffering to whatever remained of humanity after kick-starting a global nuclear war while the latter was a time-traveling organization whose efficiency in their tasks was as frightening as they were quick and blinding, not to mention they were responsible for creating a virus that killed 7 billion people as part of their plan to lead themselves into what they call the "Red Forest". Fortunately for Zac, the 12 Monkeys don't really register him as someone worth looking into, even if he opposes them while AM has since found himself having to contend against a plethora of beings who seek to dismantle his tyranny and overcome his hatred and ambitions. Still, the fact that there were tragic circumstances behind their conception led Zac to contemplate just how much effort it would be for one to fall into depravity and desperation in one's goals, himself included.
  • Thanks to the events he's been through, Zac often dreads the idea of having to be all alone for all eternity, likening to the fact that he was driven insane by the lack of social contact for so long before he found Joanne and Api. Ironically, the Hall of Loneliness was a rather comforting place for him to be in as well as one where he could express and discuss his feelings and circumstances without also feeling left out. And although he'll angst about the times he's been through, even he was taken back when he heard the tale of Joe Bonham, a World War I soldier who was critically injured and crippled by an artillery strike, rendering him in a helpless, vegetative state who longed for death but could never receive such. Generally, Zac wouldn't discuss the topic of a Fate Worse than Death, but Joe's was just too apparent and he felt greatly sympathetic for what he had to go through. Despite their differences and the grim situations they've been through, they did manage to get along with each other through the shared feeling of loneliness and hoping that the Pantheon may give them a proper life that they were denied in their mortal lives.
  • He's not the only person to spend his time as the last person on Earth, as attested by the Pantheon's nature of being a cluster of several different worlds and realms with their own events and backgrounds. Zac could take solace in relating to those who went through similar circumstances, yet at the same time felt that the Pantheon's reputation of being a massive battleground for deities, even if it's in a Cold War-esque state, means that events similar to his can potentially repeat here. This sense of dread made him pitied by many who knew of Zac as well as his attempts of restarting the world to prevent the "Second Event" from occuring. His act of self-preservation led him to meet with Jim and Hilda Bloggs, an elderly English couple who were caught in the crossfire of a nuclear war against the Soviets who were able to survive a nuclear bomb via a self-constructed shelter, only to get sick and die from the aftereffects of the radiation released by said bomb. Hearing this tale made Zac pity Jim and Hilda, feeling that at least they deserved a better life and ending than a bomb. This didn't stop the two from being open and considerate to Zac, even with all of his vices. At least they could bond over being survivors, even if for a short time in the case of Jim and Hilda, and affirm to Zac how Project Flashlight really could have benefitted everyone had it worked.
    • Of course, there's also the topic of trying to find survivors in a bleak, desolate world. From Jim's experience, he spent a month being all on his own before he encountered Joanne, and the desperation of wanting someone to communicate with and feel something led the two to have sex with one another, an act that managed to alleviate Zac from his stress and depression for a while… at least until Api's own affection for Joanne started to complicate matters and force Zac into being on his own for a while. At the end of it all, he really just wanted to find anyone to feel that he wasn't alone forever. Rick Grimes was a different matter; he was a man who was put in a coma and woke up in a world infested with "walkers" and people who would do anything to keep themselves safe as well as stealing and attacking anyone for resources in a seemingly archaic setting. Zac was rather curious about how he would have dealt with a world of "walkers", and concluded that while it would certainly be frightening, he'd at least have someone for company and to fight for, even if such a place wouldn't benefit him much regarding his profession. He and Rick have since kept in touch for their attempts in finding survivors and Zac would admit that Rick is a pretty good leader, regardless of his flaws.
  • Being alone for a prolonged period of time does prove to have a long-lasting effect on one's psyche. The fact that Zac had to spend an entire month without company despite his efforts to find anyone would take its toll on him, leading to him ranting about the state of his situation, invading homes, stealing items, and vandalizing a church whilst claiming that God is dead and that "he took his place". Nowadays, he's a bit hesitant to reflect back on said moments as regardless of his thoughts on faith, he states that he was at a sort of breaking point. There weren't a lot of figures to talk about on the topic of being driven desperate and insane from isolation, but Salad Fingers was rather… interesting. Although a tragic figure due to being a wanderer in a war-torn world and not having a clear grasp of the events he goes through, Zac has remained hesitant in directly approaching Salad Fingers, though this is mainly out of his own safety than any malice, given Salad Finger's own tendency to kill others by total accident, but regardless expresses some pity on him, know how damning isolation could do to someone's mind from personal experience, with Zac thinking that Salad Fingers remained alone in a seemingly empty world for far longer than he himself did.
Zac Hobson, July 5th. One; there has been a malfunction in Project Flashlight with devastating results. Two; it seems I am the only person left on Earth.
