Greater Gods

    Xerath 
Xerath, God of Mages Who Have Shed Their Physical Form (the Magus Ascendant, Artillery Mage, Ray Allen)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xerath_originalloading.jpg
Fully Ascended 
  • Greater God. He may become a full-blown Overdeity if he’s released from the sarcophagus
  • Symbol: An Orb of Mana with electricity crackling around it.
  • Theme Song: Shurima's theme
  • Alignment: True Neutral. note  Given his latest lore update, he could legitimately be considered Neutral Evil now.
  • Portfolio: Ambition Is Evil, Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence, Fate Worse than Death, Becoming Unhinged due to Prolonged Isolation, Kill Sat, Manipulative Bastard, Mind Rape (of Renekton), Realization Of What Their Actions Wrought, Lack of Communication Leads to an Empire's Decimation
  • Domains: Magic, Destruction, Energy
  • High Priest: The Augur of Dunlain
  • Allies: Renekton, Tharja, Patchouli Knowledge, [[Pantheon/{{Ambiguity Lucifer]]
  • Rivals: Jaina Proudmoore, Zeus
  • Enemies: Azir, Nasus, Harry Potter, Marona, Melkor (due to refusing a place in the GUAE)
  • Opposes/Opposed by: Azir, obviously
  • Conflicting Opinion with Eliphas
  • Odd Friendship: Reinforce Zwei
  • He views the Incubators, due to their amassing of energy by, as something at best used to further his goals, and at worst a possible hindrance.
  • There might be a chance he and Azir can patch things up between them, due to their hatred of each other spawning from a series of events that could have been prevented if they actually talked to each other.
    Xerath: "Too late, friend. Too late, brother. Far too late for us all."
    • Though given his latest lore update, his remorse and any chance of reconciliation is somewhat questionable, given that he was consumed by his own ambition even after Azir declared him free and willingly blasted him from the Ascension despite this. Secretly, Xerath knows that for all of his power, he is still shackled...possibly from the weight of his sins.
  • Some of the gods noticed Xerath sounds to a lot of the other deities in the pantheon. Alexstrasza and Jaina aren't too keen on the fact that he sounds like Deathwing and Arthas Menethil. Alexstrasza is even less keen on Xerath, due to him also reminding her of Malygos.
  • Despite his immense power already, he is searching for a way to break the bonds that keep his power weaker than it should be, and has been making little headway. He has stated he will not give up, however.
    • In fact, Lucifer offered him a place in the GUAC in exchange for the potential knowledge to do so, located in the vast wealth of information they had collected across the multiverse. Xerath, to many's surprise, declined, stating he would find his freedom himself, not under the yolk of another master. The Lightbringer was impressed by his dedication and left, stating the offer was always opened.
    • After the GUAE learned that he had experimented with dark sorcery and committed atrocities such as murdering Azir's mother and baby and fooling Azir into inciting a brutal campaign against a rival kingdom that he pinned the blame on (though he would claim he did it to protect Azir), Melkor also offered him a place in the GUAE Malum Magia. For the same reasons that he declined Lucifer's offer, he refused to join Melkor's alliance, for he knows that he will have no freedom under the Overdeity of Evil's control.
  • Eliphas disliked how Xerath, in Eliphas' words, "became an Astral being through an incredibly chaotic manner". Xerath however, simply doesn't care.
  • Upon Xerath's ascension, it was decided to keep Lord Tirek as far away from him as possible. Due to Xerath being, essentially, a limitless source of Mana and Tirek gaining power after draining Mana, it could potentially lead to a very bad situation. Or Tirek would explode. Either way, it'd be messy.
  • Surprising many (though some saw it coming) Xerath is surprisingly friendly with Reinforce Zwei. Some chalk it up to their shared traits, though others assume it's because she reminds Xerath of someone he might have lost.
  • At one point Xerath was caught shouting "Lightning bolt" while casting Arcanopulse. Someone decided to call him on it. Xerath responded with the obvious: "LIGHTNING BOLT!"
  • "I will be free."

Intermediate Gods

    Albus Dumbledore 
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, God of Wizard Beards (Dumbly-dorr, Your Headship, Professorhead)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/albus_dumbledore.jpg

    Kael'thas Sunstrider 
Kael'thas Sunstrider, God of Magic Addiction (Kael, Prince of the Blood Elves, Sun King, Invoker)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaelthas_sunstrider_border_6446.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Phoenix Al'ar, surrounded with rain of Fel fire.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Magic-Addicted Elves, Going To The Extremes For The Safety Of His People, Aristocrats/Princes With Questionable Morality, Pretty Boy-Ish Elves, Tragic Hero Driven To Villainy, Those Who Came Back Wrong As An Omnicidal Maniac, Fire Magic, The Losing End On A Love Triangle, The Dragon, Dangers Of Those Drunk with Power.
  • Domain: Magic, Elves, Insanity, Fire.
  • Allies: Illidan Stormrage, Jaina Proudmoore, Lor'themar Theron, Artanis, Valeera Sanguinar, Silencer
  • Rivals: Sylvanas Windrunner, Carl the Invoker, Kurei, Raiden
  • Enemies: Arthas Menethil
  • For a very long time, Kael'thas was known as a disgrace of Elves, thanks to becoming a Sycophantic Servant of Kil'jaeden at the end of his life at Azeroth and trying to blow that world up by summoning his master so lovingly. It was to the point that they'd accept Lor'themar to rule over his people, even if he prefers to not stay in the spotlight too much. And even his 'look' was majorly revamped into that of the Invoker Carl. It would seem that the name Kael'thas would be lost in the history as purely a villainous scum. However...
    • His death was merely a setback and all of the sudden, Kael'thas resurfaced in the Nexus battlefield. And to the surprise of many, the sight of the tragic prince pushed to the extremes is more seen in him. The court of the Gods decided to review his case once more, and pointed out the probability that he might have just Came Back Wrong back then, or how his Omnicidal Maniac persona was just a personification of Fel Magic that took his memories and personality. Agreeing to give him a second chance, Lor'themar then agreed to hand over a portion of his portfolio to his old Prince, but still kept the rule of his people, agreeing that right now he's getting better at controlling his magic addiction, and Kael represents all sides of the power of Addictive Magic and the dangers that come with it. Surprisingly, Kael accepted... then did not set his foot to the home of Blood Elves again. Sources say he's ashamed of his last moments in Magister's Terrace.
  • Above all, Kael has made it clear that everything he did, he did it for his people. If mentioned about that last appearance of his in Magister's Terrace... it's a good way to get burned. He insists that it's not him, he didn't ask that Burning Legion Priestess to shove Fel Magic into his dead body and made him act like that. He may have served Kil'Jaeden, but not to the level of... loving.
    • He's lately more glad when the Pantheon has seemed to agree with him thanks to a statement about 'having one's memories and personalities does not equate the same person' made by Artanis. For that Kael is grateful at him.
    • Kael was surprised to see a fellow Blood Elf, Valeera, ascend. While he's friends with her due to her being one of his people that he swore to protect, he's always denied her invitation to play a card game, saying that she has represented the Blood Elves well enough there. Only fellow Blood Elves like Lor'themar and Valeera are allowed to speak about his Old Shame and even they know where to draw the line.
  • The only person he'd still accept as a 'mutual friend' is Illidan, in which Kael was surprised because back then in his descent to villainy, he ended up being more with Kil'Jaeden because Illidan went crazy. That said, Illidan also shares the shame of getting reduced into Chronic Villainy, so they have something to bond over with.
  • Overall, a good point is that he still held his love to Jaina Proudmoore, even if he's always rejected. Regardless, people say it's still a better treatment than how she treated Arthas these days, something that Kael agreed on for a different, personal reasons.
  • Tends to jab on each other against Sylvanas Windrunner, with Sylvanas mentioning how much his old self ruined the Sunstrider name to ground, in which Kael counters with how her recent actions with Val'kyr makes her no better.
  • Has a chance meeting to his 'successor' in the Fields of the Ancients, Carl. There was rains of magic here and there, no doubt because of a massive magic duel with no clear victor.
    • He also has a chance encounter with Raiden, who demands that he answers for his crimes. Kael's response is to let Raiden do as he pleases, but he'll not go down fighting. The fight was unfortunately abrupted because a CODEC Call of a more important mission demanded Raiden to be elsewhere.
  • Thanks to his Phoenix, he somehow made bonds with a certain Kurei, not only on the latter's final flame form taking after his pet Al'ar, but also on the really harsh life he endured. Surprisingly, Kurei was quite sympathetic with Kael's plight and considers his situation more unlucky.
  • He occasionally volunteers for a commercial message for the Pantheon of warning people the dangers of magic addiction, especially because it's the ground that he rules. The commercial goes like showing a miniature brain and showering it with Fel Magic, it blew up messily, ending with this message "Control your magic well, if you get addicted, you end up like that."

Lesser Gods

    Herr Drosselmeyer 
Herr D. D. Drosselmeyer, God of Those That Rewrite Reality
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Drosselmeyer_TV_Tropes_character_sheet.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A pocketwatch with a "D" engraved on it
  • Theme Music: The Nutcracker, Part II, March, alternately Drosselmeyer No Kage
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Fairy Tales, Evil Deities, Greek Choruses, Mad Writers, Cheshire Cat Grins, Tragedy
  • Domains: Destiny, Madness, Suffering, Trickery, Tragedy
  • Followers: Was once followed by Karen Eiffel, but she soon spurned his love of tragedy when she found a man she could not bear to kill with her powers.
  • Enemies/Puppets: Ahiru, Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi (Not a puppet, but still enemies)
  • Frequently opposed by Fakir, despite the boy's powers being granted by Drosselmeyer himself. When Drosselmeyer tells him he should follow him because he says so, Fakir tells him to Screw Destiny.
  • By orders of the Main House, someone of intermediate godhood or higher is to keep tabs on Drosselmeyer at all times. With Ahiru as part of the Pantheon, Drosselmeyer has proven his powers now function on others in the house. And, unfortunately, he still has his love of tragedy.
  • The more paranoid or maybe savvy members of the Pantheon have tried to steal one of Drosselmeyer's books at a given chance. This is due to the rumor that everything happening within the Pantheon, from certain gods ascending, to the battle between the GUAE and GUAG, are all because he is writing these events into reality.
    • Drosselmeyer is aware of all this, and can only laugh. True one or two chapters in this tale are in his handwriting, but he's come to believe he himself is another author's character, and therefore not truly in charge. Not that he minds being guided by fate however, so long as he's entertained.
  • Has gained some new enemies that aren't from his show, Ashirogi Muto, who really dislike how he treats his characters and how he only writes angsty stories for angst's sake.

    Reinforce Zwei 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Zwei_42.jpg
Reinforce Zwei, Goddess of Pure Magic Beings (Unison Device, Rein, The Blessed Wind, The Tome of the Night Sky)

    Ruby (Jewelpet
Ruby, Goddess of Spellcasting Mistakes (The Jewelpet of Courage, Wise One, Deco Stone Master)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ruby_Profile_9848.png
  • Lesser Goddess usually, can be Intermediate if certain conditions are met
  • Symbol: A cherry blossom with a ruby star at its center
  • Theme Song: "Maji? Maji! Magical Jewel"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Notoriously incompetent mage, magic fails that can result in fiery explosions, lazy and poor student, Loser Protagonist, often the chosen one anyway, defeated a god once, part of a Witch Species, mischievous but good-at-heart bunny, Hot-Blooded, always happy and energetic, snow white fur with red eyes, has dated humans, cats and lions, Series Mascot.

  • Enemies: Killer Rabbit, Tharja, Quan Chi, Zouken Matou, the Incubators
  • Mixed feelings: Sakura Matou
  • Opposes/Opposed by: The fearmongers in the House of Fear.
  • Annoyed by: Michael Bay, the Bob-Ombs, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage
  • Annoys: Rabbit (Winnie-The-Pooh)
  • Ruby is a Jewelpet, a race of beings resembling various anthropomorphised animals that is born with the gift of casting magic. They're called Jewelpets because their eyes are made of minerals, which are the source of their magic. In some myths, the Jewelpets specifically exist to be familiars to humans, but others posit that they lead completely independent existences.
    • Many myths say that Jewelpets cast their magic with the help of Jewel Pods (basically magical smartphones). Ruby has one of these, which she can, in critical circumstances, use to summon the remaining 41 Jewelpets in existence so they can all together cast an Overdeity-level spell.
  • Despite the above, Ruby is actually very bad at magic. Although she's powerful, she has a lot of problems controlling her spells and getting them to do exactly what she wants. Sometimes the results are just hilariously wrong, sometimes they create a literal explosion.
    • Most deities aren't fazed anymore when they hear a kaboom from around the area of the House of Magic. They just keep at what they're doing while remarking "As expected of Ruby."
  • There are many different myths associated with Ruby, with no apparent connection between them except that she always seems to be The Heroine or the partner of a human heroine. Seven myths in particular are well-knownnote . The Ruby in the Pantheon is an original one who simultaneously holds the memories of all the different myths she has been in.
    • One of the more consistent things about her is being the personification of courage. Naturally this puts her at odds with all the deities that represent fear, and on very good terms with those who face their fears. The God of Courage himself, Guy Shishioh, likes her style and has taken her under his wing (although he's clear on one thing: no more spells to artificially increase someone's courage, no matter how well-intentioned she may be).
  • In her universe(s) there is a force known as Dark Magic that is known for being very evil and having a will of its own, to the point where there have been attempts to outright seal it. Dwelling in it is the highest taboo, so she's not comfortable with practitioners of black magic, believing they are making use of Dark Magic. Although Ruby knows from experience that some practitioners might be misguided instead of truly evil, so she doesn't completely discard the possibility that some might repent.
  • Since she is the mascot of her franchise, she gets along well with most other mascots in the Pantheon. She was particularly glad to meet Hello Kitty as they both come from Sanrio.
    • She is also very good friends with Bugs Bunny as they are both rabbits with a taste for mischief, but also default to good during dark times. On the other hand, the Killer Rabbit gives her nightmares.
  • She thinks that Cosmos is another facet of Jewelina, the major goddess of her universe. Or maybe it's Jewelina who was a facet of Cosmos all along. She's not sure, but Cosmos gives off the same motherly feeling as Jewelina, so Ruby really likes her and often tries to get her to pet her.
  • As much as Michael Bay tells her her explosions are totally awesome, Ruby isn't glad about it at all as she'd rather her magic NOT explode, period. Also the Mythbusters keep using her as a prop in their activities; dumb as she is, she never realizes it until it's too late.
    • Oddly, her propensity for explosions seems to lower significantly whenever Marvin the Martian is around. However she has no idea why this is and actually hasn't even connected it to Marvin.
    • The Bob-Ombs once proclaimed her their queen based on the sheer size and force of her explosions, much to her dismay.
  • Willow understands her because she once really sucked at magic too.
  • Due to aiding magical girls in many of her myths, the Magical Girl Sisterhood holds her in high regard (although they always politely decline her assistance lest it literally blow up in their faces). She is particularly close to Sakura Kinomoto, probably because she looks a lot like Akari Sakura, one of her partners.
  • Really hates Incubators for making magical girls suffer and tarnishing the reputation of Mentor Mascots (which she is in some myths).
  • Greatly irritates the very orderly Rabbit with her erratic and slovenly behaviour. The two are practically perfect counterparts.
    • Usagi Miyamoto is much more tolerant of her because despite her lack of finesse it's obvious that she has a just heart eager to help people.
  • In an effort to learn to stabilize her magic, she has requested Rin Tohsaka to teach her her ways. Rin said sure, as long as she shows her Jewel Land someday; she's interested in that place because it's so rich in magic, unlike her world (and maybe she can collect some mana-storing jewels for free). Friendships with other Fate deities followed; Shirou sympathizes with Ruby because he's not so talented at magic either, and Illya thinks she's adorable, besides having an affinity for her as a Magical Girl. Sakura Matou threw her off at first given the nature of her magic and what she has done with it, but Ruby understands that Zouken is really to blame. Doesn't mean Sakura doesn't still give her the willies.
    • Trying to learn stabilizing techniques from others is kind of a hopeless endeavour at any rate, because of her lazy and easily distracted nature. The only way she can consistently perform spells to perfection is through Heroic Resolve brought on by high stakes such as her friends being in danger, or the entire world.
  • After introductions by Guy, Domon Kasshu found the bunny's hot blood very promising and wants to help her learn how to harvest it in order to use it to cast successful spells.
  • Tohru Honda was surprised to hear someone who sounds like Momiji Sohma in the Pantheon. And a rabbit at that! With Ruby having a similar personality to Momiji, she has become quite close to Tohru.
  • Has a lot to talk about with Po on account of both being unlikely and unexpected chosen ones.
  • Fluttershy often invites her to her temple to hang out. Ruby reminds her of her pet bunny Angel, though Ruby is way nicer.
  • Her heart goes out to Nabi and Doki for their terrible situation. She can't help but think of some of her relationships, especially with Mikage, a human, which was considered taboo in one myth. Incidentally she too used to have a crush on a cat called Tour, though that wasn't forbidden since they were both Jewelpets. It makes her think that she's lucky in comparison to Doki.

    Triss Merigold 
Triss Merigold, Divine Protector of Magical Societies (Fourteenth Of The Hill)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/triss_4.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A Book On Fire
  • Theme Song: Now or Never
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Absolute Cleavage, Bi the Way, Cool Big Sis To Ciri, Hello, Nurse!, Allergic To Magic Despite Being A Sorceress, Ms. Fanservice, Promoted to Love Interest, Older Than They Look, In A Love Triangle With Geralt and Yen, Hot Sorceress
  • Domains: Magic, Alchemy, Law, Fire, Healing, Leadership
  • Heralds: The Lodge Of Sorceresses
  • Special Relationships: with Geralt of Rivia, Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon, Yennefer
  • Allies: Doctor Strange, Aerith Gainsborough, the Dovahkiin, Bayonetta, Jeanne, Rose, The Ascended Members Of Team RWBY (Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long), Kenshiro, Frank West, Yuna, Rydia, Alistair, Leliana
  • Enemies: Eredin Bréacc Glas, The Malum Magia, Doctor Doom, Garfield Lynns/Firefly
  • Opposes: Zeus, Morrigan and Lilith Aensland
  • It's a known fact that the Pantheon is home to many powerful deities who practice sorcery. With the ascension of Triss Merigold and Yennefer of Vengerberg, the Pantheon can add two more to their number.
  • The Pantheon was sorely lacking a Lodge of Sorceresses. This is where Triss and Yennefer come in, as they were allowed to establish a Pantheon branch of the famed lodge with the blessings of the Main House.
  • Triss is part of an on-and-off again feud with Yennefer for Geralt of Rivalt. She has gained a lot of traction in the Love Triangle thanks to her expanded role in the games. This revelation has not helped eased tensions with the rival sorceress. It's a miracle in itself that both Triss and Yen don't try and kill one another.
    • Rather than to force Geralt to choose between the both of them, they both decide to share him. Geralt is all for the arrangement, so long as he stays out of the House of Love and remain loyal to the both of them. Geralt agrees to this arrangement.
    • Being the manwhore that he is, Zeus wanted to see if "the curtains match the drapes" regarding Triss. He is now banned from stepping foot inside her temple.
    • The same can be said for Gregor Cleagne. Unlike Zeus, he's not subtle when it comes to women, if what he had done to Elia Martell could attest to that. The two women also don't think so highly of Gregor's sworn lord, Tywin Lannister, more so for Yennefer, due to his being an abusive dad to his children. His mortal death by crossbow-bolt to the bowels was much well deserved in her opinion.
  • Frank West was delighted to find out Triss isn't shy about baring it all for the camera, as she posed for Polish Playboy in the past. She is one of his candidates for his "PERFECT EROTICA" shoot. As it turns out, Jiraiya has that issue. Triss was even nice enough to autograph it when he asked. Now there is a debate going on over who is the hotter redhead between Triss, Crimson Viper and Jean Grey.
  • Most would guess correctly that she uses fire magic based on her look. Few know that she is also a healer Triss tends to keep away from black magic, both due to fearing the implications of the technique and her allergies to magic in general.
    • Triss, on the other hand, has shown remarkable leadership skills within her lodge, as seen during the search for Ciri. Most agree that the lodge will be in good hands even with Yennefer's departure.
  • The lodge is the closest thing to a magical front for good sorcerers against the newly minted Malum Magia. Triss constantly looks for new recruits to combat against them.
  • Doctor Doom is also a major threat to her lodge. The ruler of Latveria would want nothing more to cripple the group poised to stop his schemes. Tris constantly consults the Fantastic Four in ways with dealing with him.
  • Triss is known as "Fourteenth of the Hill." This stems from her believing that she had been killed during the Battle of Sodden Hill.
  • Triss has made a reputation for herself as a skilled healer, and she carries many magical potions on her person. Which is kinda ironic because she is allergic to magic elixirs and potions, and therefore can't use them on herself.
  • The ascended Hokuto and Nanto warriors had mistaken Triss for Mamiya, the warrior woman from their post-apocalyptic world, due to the red hair.
  • As Triss is a healer, she sees the potential in Yuna and Rydia in using their magic to heal. Both girls are considering not only membership within the Pantheon's Lodge, but also the thought of being apprentices to Triss herself.
  • Triss is well aware of Morrigan and Lilith's involvement with succubi in her world. She isn't pleased with the prospect of Geralt sleeping with them every now and then.
  • She may specialize in fire magic, but she will not tolerate those who fling fireballs just for fun. Those sorry lot get tossed away, likely into the arms of Firefly.
  • Alistair constantly brings up comparisons with his former teammate Leliana. They can at least share their disdain of her snide remarks about them. When Leliana eventually made it to the Pantheon herself, they were quick to make friends, though Triss was quick to establish boundaries as the bard sometimes have issues with that. Of course that also meant that she had a counterbalance against Yennefer with the arrival of Morrigan.
  • "I am the "Fourteenth of the Hill"! I am not a little frightened girl from a dark Maribor Tower anymore..."
