    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, 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/dumbledore_harris.png

    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_9754.jpg
  • 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 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."

Poppy (right) and Branch (left)
Click here to see Branch at the beginning of the film 
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: Their hair
  • Theme Song: Their cover of True Colors
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Branch used to have shades of True Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Magic Hair (changing colors and being prehensile), All Trolls Are Different, Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl, Losing Color When Depressed, Pink Girl, Blue Boy
  • Domain(s): Trolls, Hair, Magic
  • Heralds: the rest of the Trolls
  • High Priestess: Lady Lovely Locks
  • Followers: Christopher Spectrum, Samantha Thing, Susan Sto Helit, the royal family of Idris, Corrina, Demiguises, Truska
  • Allies: Filia, Shantae, Rapunzel, Vol'jin
  • Enemies: Sellouts (like Peter Pettigrew and Wallace Breen), those who find happiness in doing evil, Archibald Snatcher
  • Dislike: Zul'jin
  • It was difficult finding candidates for Magic Hair, mainly because most of the ones who would've qualified already had other titles. But someone in the Court did manage to find someone; Princess Poppy of the Trolls (though much different from the traditional ones). She accepted the offer to ascend, but only if her companion Branch ascends alongside her, as she couldn't have gone through what she did without him.
    • What kind of magic can their hair pull off? They can control its shape as easily as an arm or a leg, can extend or retract almost instantaneously, and even change colors (for camouflage and more).
  • Applies to both:
    • To ensure that the disaster of the Bergen Chef abducting numerous Trolls 20 years after their kind's flight from Bergentown before forging peace with the Bergens doesn't happen again, the two immediately got to work on making friendships and alliances, Branch for access to defenses and warning systems and setting them up, and Poppy for diplomatic reasons and other political matters.
    • As fellow deities with Magic Hair, Filia (though Samson just scoffs at them), Shantae, and Rapunzel became fast friends with them, and the last of them happens to be a princess (in a sense) just like Poppy (though the little Troll has since become queen after making peace with the Bergen).
      • They (and some others) are also curious as to what the relationship status is between her and Branch, but neither wish to say.
    • Some vile members in the GUAE have taken an interest in the Bergens' desire to eat Trolls for happiness and plan on going from there since the Bergens have abandoned that ideal. Branch's devising of defense plans have been well-justified. A few have noticed this scheme and think the bad guys are treating the Trolls as pot or something like that, just like how some quacks think Jurassic Park-made dinosaurs think of humans despite the impracticaility of chasing one down.
    • Some people are confused upon being told that the two are trolls, given that most would assume them to be…bigger, even if not gigantic. Still, the representative god of it, Vol'jin, finds their actions commendable, though was critical about Poppy's lack of concern for security before the Bergen Chef abducted a number of her kind. At least that's what some of his followers who know him would think he'd say to them, since he's absent on his throne after his mortal shell was destroyed.
      • As for Zul'jin, he once insulted their kind by remarking that he hates having his hair touched and that it doesn't grant stinky wishes. As such, he's not well-liked by them.
      • And like every other troll, they don't like Archibald Snatcher for his desire to spread misery as he climbs the social ladder.
    • Sellouts of any kind are not tolerated, especially for Poppy, given how one of their own, Creek, did just that (betraying his entire race) to save his own skin. Special contempt goes to Pettigrew (for obvious reasons), though it's a mite complicated for Breen as his actions did give humanity a chance against the Combine, even though that's probably not what he intended.
  • Exclusive to Poppy:
    • As someone who wishes to grant happiness for everyone, she became very fast friends with others who have the same aspirations such as Pinkie Pie, Amélie, and Gentaro.
    • Had to eventually come to terms with the fact that there are those who really find happiness in doing terrible (and often unspeakable) things, especially those who love taking happiness away; she wants people to be happy, but never at the expense of another's.
      • She also fell sick for a while after reading a few pages of Brave New World, she didn't think happiness was capable of enslavement to it until now.
    • Broke into Tears of Joy from hearing about Madoka's tale and her ultimate sacrifice, and again but with more sorrow upon hearing of how Homura stipped her of her powers for Madoka's happiness (and safety). Poppy finds that sort of happiness as purely selfish and not the kind of happiness she wishes.
    • Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers note that she sounds like the former's sister Stacey Pilgrim.
  • Exclusive to Branch:
    • Those who have noted his ability in singing (especially during the Darkest Hour for the Trolls, where his song brought them all, especially Poppy, from the brink of despair) have nudged Branch to meeting Justin Timberlake. Given that he's finding allies to secure his and Poppy's temple at the moment, that's on hold.
    • As former cynics who have managed to find happiness again after first losing it as a result of lost family, Branch gets along with Manfred and Marlin, and can understand the latter's initial paranoia of needing protection becoming justified when disaster did strike.
    • Having lost his grandmother to Chef Bergen, Branch has a sore opinion on killers of parental figures (and parents) and sympathizes with those who lost theirs.

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A Book On Fire
  • Theme Song: Now or Never
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Absolute Cleavage, Cool Big Sis To Ciri, Head-Turning Beauty, 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

  • 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..."
