Pantheon / Love

Go To

Love and Lust

The House of Love and Lust is, for the most part, fantastically decadent. Visitors are reminded that this is not a cathouse, and most of the gods residing in it will, at best, laugh if propositioned. It is a wonderful place to take a date, and a popular attraction for groups of friends. The House's purpose is to provide comfortable, relaxing surroundings, ideal for pleasures of all kinds, from intellectual to carnal. That doesn't mean there aren't uncomfortable parts, but a visitor can only get into those of his or her own accord. No unwanted violence is permitted here - even the worst of enemies are forced to do nothing but glare and walk away unless they're really there for one another. To infringe upon this rule is to invoke the wrath of Bayonetta. Or, worse, that of Desire.


This House has its own highly-tended steamy garden replete with a number of secluded nooks. Under its domed roof, one can find the bubbling pools - for obvious reasons - of such things as mud, wine, chocolate, Jell-O, and mysterious slime. The kitchens are always well stocked, the furnishings well appointed. The best sound systems in the Pantheon are here, although it's superior by a very slim margin (It's rumored that Akio Ohtori "persuades" Tony Stark to hand over the blueprints for every new sound system as soon as they're conceived), and, obviously, many songs about love and sex are available to listen. Infamously, there is a door which opens into an explicit wing of the House of Knowledge's Library, and a strange little room in which anything and everything a visitor finds exciting can be seen. Clothing is optional in designated areas, keeping in with the whole "Lust" thing.


A visitor's final and most emphatic warning is this: Don't go beyond the place where the columns become supple, that place where the very nonhuman make their homes. Unless you're into that.

Be cautious when wandering this house, as Belle is a Princess of Heart; any attempts to kidnap her or use her to recreate the χ-blade will get you ripped into shreds by the Beast, and if you survive, you will be banned.

  • Enemies: the GUAE Trollkaiger (Yuuki Terumi, Bernkastel, Izaya, Handsome Jack, and Basco), most members of the House of Hatred, YHVH.
  • Frequent guest of Laharl, God of Noble Demons. Laharl insists that it's for purely for tactical alliance reasons and the fact that she acts exactly like his mother is entirely coincidence.
  • Upon concluding that Laharl's conversion to the side of good was a success (whether he admits it or not), Flonne has set her sights on nudging Kefka towards the path of righteousness. The rest of the pantheon is taking bets on how long before she snaps.
  • Experienced a massive surge in power after her recent promotion/transformation.
  • Her otaku nature means that she often Squees overseeing Humongous Mecha and Cool Starships, means that when she's not here, she is visiting the House of Technology in hopes she can convince someone there into building her a better machine.
  • NEVER comment to her about her small chest, the last person that did so got blasted to the other end of the planet.
  • Is a very vocal supporter of the Chick Magnet Quartet, which is probably a given since Criminy is one of the members and Asia is part of its Battle Harem. Rumor has it she's also the president of the Quartet's much-rumored fan club...
  • She's currently trying to teach Panty and Stocking the ways of a more proper Angel. So far there's been very little progress, as Panty keeps on having sex with all the gods of the Pantheon, and Stocking continues to eat more and more sweet food.
  • The discovery of Flonne's Magical Girl transformation caused her to become a target for "Trollkaiger". It involved a copy of Puella Magi Madoka Magica. The experience freaked her out to say the least. Unfortunately for Trollkaiger, Flonne found out soon after that Madoka herself existed, and upon meeting her, the loving, kind, selfless nature of the Goddess won Flonne's utmost admiration. Then she found out about Madoka's Sisterhood, and applied as soon as she could, thrilled at the prospect of working alongside such an amazing person. Oops.
    • After the Great Upheaval, Flonne has been inducted into the ranks of the Sisterhood. After everything that had unfolded during that horrible time, her unending optimism is widely considered to be in DIRE need. It's working so far, at least on some level. Upon the orders of Lamington, she and the Celestial Host have deployed to the GUAG Sisterhood to protect Madoka during "The Pantheonic Rebellion". However, the Upheaval has given Flonne a question to ponder: "How could love go so wrong?"
  • She is occasionally found visiting Asagi in Theatric Performers, encouraging her to continue on her quest.
