Kaido, God of Being Impossible to Execute (Kaido of the Beasts, Strongest Creature In The World, Lord Kaido)

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Beast Pirate's flag

  • Annoyed by: Infinite, Adon
  • Kaido is one of the Yonko, or Four Emperors. One of the most feared and powerful pirates in the world, he has had 40 attempts to execute him. Hanging, decapitation, torture, everything and it has all failed to kill him. Feeling bored by all the power he has, Kaido wishes to start a war to end all wars to both cure his boredom and find a way to die.
  • Regarded as the strongest creature in the world. Bored with what he can already do, he's taken attempted suicide as a hobby. The Death Is Cheap nature of the pantheon has made him majorly annoyed by this, given there are actual deities that could give him the death he wants. When it was pointed out that as a Devil Fruit user he could achieve death by drowning, Kaido responded with "that's boring!"
  • When asked if they can try to terminate them like they're attempting with SCP-682, The SCP Foundation responded with "no, eliminating SCP-682 is more important". Not that they don't want to know what Kaido is. The leader of the Beast Pirates doesn't care about them anyway.
  • He found the pantheon to not be as boring as the world he comes from, but not interesting enough. He wishes to stoke the flames of war and up the ante with the various alliances' Forever War. This has made him an enemy of those that side with peace, such as Wonder Woman. While YHVH is not above using war for His purposes, Kaido considers His ideal world to be the epitome of boring and YHVH finds his objectives to get in the way of order.
  • Kaido has chosen to side with Lucifer for the time being. He finds his ideal world where might makes right to be very interesting, and it will help him oppose the GUAL who already have it out for him due to being a war hungry pirate. Apollyon, Bellona and Ares are all for the war to end all wars and have sworn to help Kaido achieve this.
  • It is unclear if Kaido is even human. His Mythical Zoan form might actually just be his natural form. As One Piece blurs the line of what humans naturally have, the horns and giant size might be weird human traits, giant blood or something else. The Imperium of Mankind takes a stance he is a horrible mutant that must be exterminated. Against Kaido, it's not unjustified to feel so.
  • Kaido's an alcoholic, and undergoes some serious mood swings whenever he's drunk. And it involves a massive amount of alcohol, much to Moe Syzlack's exhaustion. It's highly advised to let him be and don't get involved. Barney Gumble was drunk and stupid enough to try to both out-drink him(which he almost succeeded) and get in a bar fight, resulting in him becoming a yellow smear. It's really telling how dangerous he is when Luffy lost in a Curb Stomp Cushion battle with him, only because he was completely wasted.
  • Wants to find strong fighters, partly because they could be useful to his plans. Many a Blood Knight were excited by the prospect of fighting him, though wary that unless he really enjoyed it he is likely to try breaking or converting them to serve him. Adon's arrogance simply annoyed Kaido, as did Infinite. The jackal couldn't stand a being stronger than him and immediately tried to take Kaido down, only for him to soon get through his illusions and punch Infinite into a wall.
  • Both Son Goku and Vegeta were happy to fight Kaido, and for once actually gave Kaido difficulty. He had to resort to his dragon form, and the fight was ultimately called off because they realized their fight with him was causing unwanted destruction. Cell, seeing this, stated "I feel we've got some serious blue balls here" and asked Kaido if he wants to be part of the Cell Games. On the King of Beasts, Cell has said "he might be the strongest creature, but the strongest lifeform trumps creature. Personally, I feel he should take a little more pride in his power and not be bored of life all the time".
  • Leads the Beast Pirates, who are almost entirely Zoan Devil Fruit users. Naturally, he is very interested in the House of Beast and is trying to recruit members there. In turn, Khorne wants to recruit Kaido, to the absolute fear of every other One Piece deity.
  • Has artificial Devil Fruits, SMILE Devil Fruits, used to bolster his army. Both the Gold Toothed Doctor and Professor Hojo were immoral enough to work for him and help produce them. They have suggested SCP-040 be kidnapped to force her to create monsters to serve under him, and the Eevelutions experimented on to better understand their genetics and make more efficent ways of creating these SMILE Devil Fruits. The Elric brothers have taken major offense at this, as has Dr Alphys.
  • His Devil Fruit lets him turn into an enormous dragon, though it's also possible he it's his true form and he's a dragon that can turn into a human. He has an interest in Daenerys' dragons in this form. He also find Acnologia someone he likes to fight, though the former's self-bigotry means he just despises Kaido.
  • Hircine took a great interest in Kaido what with his reputation for being really powerful and form given he is the progenitor of lycanthropy in his world. Though the Huntsman doesn't care about his goals for a war to end all wars, he can definitely relate to his bloodlust. Hircine even offered to challenge him as one of his aspects to truly test strength he really carries, win or lose, even if the former is still holding back considering the sheer power a Daedric Prince carries.

Intermediate Gods

    Ban 
Ban, God of Healing From Fatal Injuries (Fox's Sin of Greed, Bandit Ban, Undead Ban, Baan, Lord Ban, Fairy King Ban, The Man of Greed, Ban Jovi)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ban_5.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Fox's Sin Tattoo
  • Theme Song: Fairy and Ban
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good with Chaotic Neutral tendencies
  • Portfolio: Can heal from fatal injuries, Generally fights with nunchucks, Healing Factor, Heartbroken Badass, Hell-Bent for Leather, Frequently suffers the most brutal and fatal physical injuries in battle, Impossible Thief, Can pull objects to himself from great distances like a magnet, Can steal the physical abilities of his opponents, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Loveable Rogue, Desires to resurrect Elaine
  • Domain(s): Immortality, Theft, Love, Devotion
  • Heralds: Elaine and Jericho
  • Allies: Meliodas, Diane, Dante Sparda, Carmen Sandiego, Connor and Duncan MacLeod, Jack Harkness
  • Friendly Rivalry with: Michelangelo
  • Enemies: Ten Commandments, Alex Wesker
  • Annoys: Tallahassee
  • As a child in the town of Ravens in Britannia, Ban lived by stealing from others, constantly getting chased and beaten by those he stole from. Eventually, he was caught one day and sent to Aberdeen Prison, where he met a man called Zhivago. Later on, Ban escaped the prison with Zhivago and lived in his hideout, where Zhivago taught him how to properly steal. Years later, Ban made his way to the Fairy King's Forest in order to drink from the fountain of youth and become immortal, believing that if he lived long enough, something good might eventually happen to him. However, Ban ended up befriending the fountain's guardian, the Fairy Elaine, and promised her not to drink from the fountain. Over time, the two fell in love and Ban offered to take her outside the forest and travel the world together, which she refused because of her duty to protect the fountain in her brother's stead. Ban then promised to find her brother and bring him back to the forest, which would relieve Elaine of her duties. However, a demon appeared shortly afterwards, burning the forest and mortally wounding both of them. Despite Ban's insistence that Elaine drink the fountain's water, she made him drink it through a kiss, thus making him immortal and allowing him to kill the demon. Sometime later, Ban was put on death row for supposedly having destroyed the forest, drunk from the fountain and having killed Elaine himself out of greed. After surviving 33 executions, Ban was visited in his cell by Meliodas, who wanted him to join the Seven Deadly Sins. Although initially refusing the offer, Ban agreed to join after a brief fight with Meliodas, having decided to follow him because the latter was the only one besides Elaine to accept him.
  • Upon his ascension, Ban was surprised to discover that he had regained his immortality, as he had previously sacrificed it in order to fully revive Elaine. He was also happy to be reunited with Meliodas and Diane, which resulted in him and Meliodas having an arm wrestling competition that damaged a portion of Ban's temple, which he didn't mind.
  • When presented with the option of appointing people to positions within his temple, Ban chose to appoint Elaine and Jericho as his heralds. When the two are not busy fulfilling their duties, they often accompany him throughout the pantheon. Elaine in particular has developed a fondness for the House of Nature, as it reminds her of the Fairy King's Forest.
  • Ban is good friends with Dante Sparda, as the two share a similar appearance and taste in fashion, can heal from otherwise fatal injuries and have both lost loved ones to demons. The two are often seen either hanging out or slaying demons.
  • Ban has a strong respect for Carmen Sandiego, whose thieving skills far surpass his own. He occasionally accompanies her on her heists, although mostly just to have fun rather than to steal anything in particular.
  • He gets along well with Connor and Duncan MacLeod, who have both similarly lost loved ones over the course of their long lives. Although neither of them approve of his thieving habits, they know that he's a good guy deep down.
  • Ban occasionally visits the various immortals in the House of Life and Death. He's struck up a friendship with Jack Harkness, although he has also made it clear that he's not really interested in "dancing" with Jack, not that it stops Jack from trying to convince him otherwise. However, Ban has also become enemies with Alex Wesker, who wishes to capture him in order to splice his DNA in an attempt to become immortal.
  • Ban frequently engages in friendly sparring matches with Michelangelo, who similarly wields nunchucks. Although their first meeting initially consisted of Ban freaking out about Michelangelo being a talking turtle.
  • On occasion, Ban inexplicably becomes obsessed with Twinkies (claiming to have stolen and eaten his world's entire Twinkie supply), as well as a Cloud Cuckoo Lander and Combat Sadomasochist with a terrible singing voice. No one really knows why Ban sometimes acts like this, although many suspect that he's deliberately trolling them. Tallahassee is particularly annoyed by Ban's antics when he's like this, as Ban keeps stealing his Twinkies.

    Dougen 
Dougen, God of Coming Back Unexplained
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dougen_cg.png
Yoma Dougen 
Puppet Dougen 
  • Intermediate God (Near Greater God as Puppet Dougen)
  • Symbol: A corrupted, upside-down cross
  • Theme Music: And To The Edge of Ambition
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Mysterious Backer, Badass in a Nice Suit, Big Bad, Despicable Villain Alongside Reasonable Antagonists, Behind Most of the Yoma Actions, Mind Manipulation, Muscular Build, Super-Muscular Alternate Modes, Refusing To Just Die Somehow, Always Falling Back on Something
  • Domains: Villains, Hair, Mind Control, Demons
  • Heralds: The Yoma Generals
  • Followers: Hyatt, Hammerhead
  • Allies: Orochi, Mikami, Sosuke Aizen, Akio Ohtoni, The Psycho Rangers, Ragyo Kiryuin, Purple Eyes
  • Enemies: HOMURA, Asuka, practically everyone else from Senran Kagura universe, Yuma Tsukumo, Naruto Uzumaki, Jotaro Kujo
  • Dougen, to put it simply, is not a nice man. A former shinobi himself, he has been seeking ways to gain ultimate power and world conquest with any ways possible. His true ambitions came to light when Homura find out that he has been funding Hebijo Academy to simply raise enough elite shinobi to summon the yoma Orochi. And even after his initial failure, he has hatched many plans to fulfil his ambition.
  • One of the more ridiculous things about him is his utter resistance to either die or stay dead. Because he has survived; being sliced in vertically half; fatally wounded and then drag along Orochi's body; beaten up by Homura and Rin, crushed beneath a giant yoma what engulfed into nothingness, taking Dougen with it; and if one takes New Wave into account, sliced in half again by Crimson Homura. While he might be "dead" as far as we have seen, no one is surprised if he pops back. How he has pulled these stunts? No one knows, as he never bothers to explain it.
  • Homura was pissed when she heard that he ascended, practically screaming from top of her lungs "Why Won't You Die?". Dougen was amused by her claims.
    Dougen: It doesn't matter how many times I seem to die. I will keep on coming back, no matter what. And now that I am a god, there isn't any way you will be able to kill me. But there are other things what I can do to you than simply kill you.
    • ...Though him gloating at Homura almost got himself stabbed by Homura's Engetsuka. Though he was able to dodge the attack and leave the confrontation at that.
  • He is quite an important figure when it comes to training up the mooks of GUAE, as not only does he provide funding, but a lot of materials as well, even sometimes taking some direct approach to them.
    • However, the main reason he does it is because that allows him to have any sacrifices he has to provoke demons and such when he needs to. He is quite willing to do business with demons if they need any sacrifices to summon their comrades, if only for his own gain.
  • Sundowner once thought that he would be an ally of sort, due of thinking him as "demons dealer" as many have stated him trying to sell yoma for militaries for profit. However, Dougen quickly dismissed those claims straight at Sundowner's face, saying that he has much more grand schemes than just some pitiful profit.
  • Once had black hair, for whatever reason. However, while most Senran Kagura gods dismiss their anime counterparts, he is quite pleased with his anime counterpart's actions, like how he had practically everyone from Hebijo Academy on dead man's switch.
  • He is regarded as being one of more impressive mind manipulators in the Pantheon, able to trance people by merely talking to them, using the art of puppetry on those with similar powers and even using it on himself to make him stronger. This has impressed gods like Aizen and some gods wonder if he can even surpass him on art of Mind Manipulation.
  • His voice has given him a lot of bad rep from other gods like Jotaro, who sounds like him, and Yuma, who is reminded by Mr. Heartland. The only positive thing he can think of is that he is buddies with Akio... maybe.
  • Once tried to collaborate with GUAE's tech experts on a project he called "Orochi Rising" to spew as much hatred and conflict as possible using bots (inspired by the Yoma Generals), what would then fuse into a master program (called Orochi) to be the ultimate program to bringing everyone into chaos. It ultimately failed, but it did show him important data on manipulating human emotions, and whenever or not such conflict would catch the interest of yoma.
    • After the failure of the project, he did start to realize how great the Pantheon is for his plans. Since the Pantheon can be considered being in Forever War, all he needs to do is somehow let the yoma catch interest in the eternal conflict and they will come to him easily.
  • Has some sort of a business deal with Purple Eyes, interestingly enough. As Purple Eyes is interested on trying to expand the usability of the Control Gauntlet, Dougen's availability of yoma interests him for experiments. Dougen, on other hand, does find the Control Gauntlets interesting enough to work for him. Though he is not really on Purple Eyes' Misanthrope Supreme side of things.

  • Saffron, Reva, Gunner, Selicy, Hazel, Terra, Shiso, Violette, and Shopkeeper. These nine travelers hail from a home torn apart by war and their only hope is reaching the promised land that is Eden. Yet the road to such a place is treacherous. Various monsters stand in their path, yet the most dangerous hurdles come from each other. Inevitably, they have to come to blows and best them to continue on but in order to truly make it to their destination each and every last one of them has to be spared, save for perhaps Terra after her brief stint as the final opponent on that routenote  If even one of them is executed on the way there none of the rest actually make it to the titular place all thanks to Serif, Eden's guardian, smiting them for trying to force their way in through the gate. Just one step from Eden, if you will. Worser still is the scenario in which one of them going out of their way to execute the rest there, which would include the Shopkeeper, as they end up being its very destroyer by way of actually taking down Serif herself. And that was just after fighting their way through Eden itself. In short, sparing people really has its boons here. It saves lives, yours included.
  • The nine travelers are as follows:
    • Saffron, the starting character and poster girl for the game. A military scientist before embarking on her journey, she's apparently had a hand in designing a number of spells and technologies and prefers to think through when it comes to her problems. One of the more friendlier faces and is open to cooperation, but was stated to have a hand in some pretty dangerous spells and isn't above using her foes as field testing. That, and she's still as much of a beast when it comes to combat like the rest of her comrades.
    • Reva, the veritable knight in shining armor. Even after escaping from a war-torn world her ideals remain stalwart as her shield, Eschaton: There are still people out there worth protecting from whatever dangers the world has to throw at everyone. She will not shy away from fighting if it's the sake of the defenseless, but that doesn't mean she'll particularly enjoy it, killing even less so. It's to the point that she expresses the most remorse out of the entire cast and of out of all the bosses she has the highest default spare ratio numbering at 21%. In fact, Reva outright calls out many of her fellow travelers for their actions in the past. Reva came to accept them, however, especially as they pretty much improved themselves after the whole journey in the end.
    • Gunner's a mercenary hot-shot with a preference towards firepower through guns and munitions to solve problems. Yeah, who knew, right? Apparently, he's got quite the reputation on his hands with hundreds of kills to his name before starting out his journey. Befitting his occupation he has quite the professional attitude, even treating the path to Eden as just another mission. This notably makes him one of the more unscrupulous members of this band despite being one of the youngest, at one point even telling Reva that whether she likes it or not everyone days sooner or later.
    • Selicy is a girl who proclaims herself as a queen of the North. She's fond of the simple things in life: She loves the cold, sharing what she loves, and getting up into enemies faces. She’s a cryomancer, if you couldn’t tell, but her demeanor is anything but chill. Definitely one of the rudest of the group, even for her young age, making her quite the bratty tomboy. Her attitude improved a bit after getting to Eden, but her love for ice puns remains.
    • Hazel’s her name, Hexawan engineering is her game. You can tell because she’s lugs around a person-sized wrench on her body at all times. Hazel knows her way through all sorts of machines, most notably more dangerous sorts of tech that serve as weapons. Skilled as she was, however, it wasn’t enough to prevent whatever kind of disaster that befell her old home. Nor was it ever enough to surpass Saffron in any achievements, something Hazel has greatly resented. Their rivalry continues but thankfully after making it to Eden they’ve pretty much made up and it’s more on the friendly, but heated kind of competitions.
    • The “leader of her new world”, Terra carries the elegant aura of such a figure and possesses great skill over black magic. As a result she gives off quite the menacing and sometimes even malicious aura, fitting as she ends up as the Pacifist route’s Final Boss under the form of “Terrable” despite being spared earlier. It’s unknown why she suddenly decided to turn on the group though there’s evidence of it being an Enemy Without type of deal. Might stem from some dark power and/or artifact, but who really knows at this point. What’s certain is that she genuinely has a change of heart after being spared yet again. Also, she likes to break things.
    • Face-obscuring scarf, jet-black shades, overall dark clothing, Shiso’s is the closest to your archetypal rogue. A selfish loner, he's perhaps the most remorseless with the lowest default spare ratio everyone with a measly 5%, tied wirh Terra. Of course, like everyone else he probably got a bit better at least after having traveled to Eden. Maybe sparing the rest/being spared himself done something good underneath. His decision to use the Lynchpin and low opinions on magic may also point to him being a bit old-fashioned too.
    • Keep to the beat when Violette is around. You may not even have a choice in the matter, anyways. This violinist has quite a dignified, charming air to her, and remains just as graceful even in battle. An older woman like herself might be a bit pompous, but she is always grateful to those who have the time to appreciate her music. It’s an exhausting art, sure, but it’s also what gives her life and nothing else even comes to making her happy besides it.
    • You’d think people would look to safer, stabler places to set up shop but when has business ever been truly halted by danger? Shopkeeper has wares if you have coin and they usually include artifacts, spells, upgrades, and even removals. Other than she can also refresh her stock, take blood in exchange for money, or form pacts for free that prove rewarding if one can take the heat for a while. On Dark routes, stock that costs money now takes health as well. Usually pleasant to talk to, until she isn’t if the attitude she shows in her character select and when encountered in Dark roads are anything to go off of. Then again, it’s probably a more stressful venture than looks so maybe it’s best to give her a break.
  • Following the outcome in which all of them make it to Eden and Terra is shown mercy, the nine heroes have since settled their differences to live peaceful lives there. And yet seems as though none of them could quite escape that call to adventure. At one point did someone among this band catch wind of yet another faraway place and out of curiosity (and maybe against one's better judgement too) decided to undertake yet another trip. Maybe Shopkeeper wanted to expand her business, maybe Gunner was tasked with a new job, maybe Reva was beckoned by the prospect of more people needing her help, or perhaps Saffron and Hazel wanted to prove something, it's quite unclear. What was clear was that they ended up incidentally galvanizing the rest of their compatriots to travel together once more. Good thing too, the road ahead of them was not only as long as the road to Eden but there was a great deal of dangers, some familiar and others none of them have ever seen before. Still, they made it and found themselves at the Pantheon's doorstop.
    • Stepping inside, they were congratulated for making the trip all the way out here. As per customs, all nine of them were offered a short trip around and were at one point offered placement within the place as Gods. The lot of them were pretty skeptical at the offer, as expansive and awe-inspiring as the Pantheon was they found it hard to give up Eden after everything they went through though lucky for them they didn't necessarily have to choose between the two. Should they accept, they're able to freely travel between the two worlds whenever they like. Weighing in their options, personal interests, and concern regarding some of the other gods and goddesses coming onto Eden, they ended up accepting the proposition.
  • Given that their game of deck-building combat in a tile-based battleground takes great inspiration from the Mega Man Battle Network series it shouldn't come off as that big of a surprise when many of the deities from said series took time out of their days to meet them. Lan Hikari, MegaMan.EXE, Eugene Chaud, and Iris.EXE had little trouble getting along with them, even including the more aloof members though hailing from the Pacifist route might have something to do with that. There was only one god absent from that day's line up and upon being asked out about Lan and Eugene explained to them about the existence of Bass.EXE. Since then they've been cautious of him given his disdain for humans and their perceived betrayal, even if he is more-so focused on MegaMan.EXE for besting him.
  • Given that the whole point of their adventure was to make it to Eden they've made friends with the likes of Madeline and Diogenes, even if their journey was more high stakes and dire. They're also friendly towards the robed figure, though with its views on conflict due to the state of the world it's most comfortable towards Reva. Counting its weakness to the cold it would rather not be within range of Selicy whenever possible. Max Rockatansky and Imperator Furiosa's journey oasis by comparison in more in line with their experiences and they relate to that more easily.
  • As they follow the "Pacifist route" of their game they made friends with Iji Kataiser, Frisk, and Oborumaru. This is in spite of the fact that the former runs by indirect and technical killing while the latter two run by no deaths period. Then again, the "pacifism" only really refers towards each other as opponents after beating the crap out of one another and not the various monsters they run into on the way to Eden. Still, the travelers promise to have their backs if circumstances permit.
  • One day Saffron came into the temple bragging about she had acquired herself a new job. Not long after that Hazel came in doing the same and the two of them got into a lengthy back and forth conversation. It wasn't until that Dystnine came to their doorstep did they realize they were both hired by the Gargantua company run by Stella. That was awkward in of itself but then on the way home from the first day a floating brain in a jar named Dr. 0 ranted and raved about surpassing him in science before leaving in a huff. All in all, pretty weird day.
  • Through Stella, she warned them of an organization known as Eden that is comprised of Adepts like herself. Unlike her, they're quite hostile to mankind thanks to their past experiences and many of their actions have been working towards carving out a paradise for themselves, often at the cost of all humans. Knowing the threat they would probably pose to Eden they stand ready to guard it from them. With the members of the Seven there's quite the match-ups to be made. Selicy versus Tenjian, Hazel versus Asroc, and Violette versus Ghauri in particular would be interesting to see indeed.
  • During a slow day where Saffron, Reva, Terra, and Selicy were lounging around their temple they heard a bloodcurdling roar of a monstrous beast. Turning to the direction it came from none other than the Deviljho, a particularly voracious predator. While bigger, the four of them managed to make it turn the other direction. While the rest of them clapped their hands for a job well done, Reva was quite concerned where the giant monster was running to but Selicy assured her it probably wasn't anywhere important and that more-than-likely the House Guardians and Monster Hunters would take care of it soon enough but Reva would have none of that. The shieldmaiden's intuition would be correct as the Deviljho's path lead right towards the House of Health and Diseases. Thus, they were forced to finish it off lest it try and devour the various patients and visiting gods. The honor went to Selicy and the Brute Wyvern has resented them ever since.
    Chihiro Fujisaki: W-Well, a-a combination of a meteor and the long term eff-
    Selicy: The Ice Age!
  • Saffron only:
    • Perhaps fitting Saffron's brilliant mind she's a Jack-of-All-Trades and her default loadout is not only a good mix of different spells but she's able to fit into any desired focus of spells she sees fit. Anima, Glimmer, Miseri, if you can name it she can probably fit into it. If she has to pick a favorite, though, she does favor Ragnarok. It's even her sole spell in one of her alternate loadouts, the aptly named Solo, which encourages the execution of hostages for extra max HPnote . And speaking of alternate loadouts, the other one has her trade out the Field Bracer for a wristwatch that slows down time. As an opposing boss, her patterns aren't all two different from spells acquirable by the player though she does gain a plushie of her likeness which can retaliate against attacks done to it. In both instances as a character and boss she's able to Auto-Revive by way of Second Soul.
    • Even though she is a mage, one who worked on her fair share of outright dangerous spells, the fact that she is also a scientist shouldn't be neglected. With that in mind she makes trips in both the Houses of Magic and Science in her pursuits. Doesn't really go on and making enemies left and right there, though she does harbor quite the distaste for Calypso and Lord Tirek. As far as colleagues go, she works well with Susie and Ciel, though Saffron admits she's more comfortable around the Neo Arcadia scientist than the Haltmann CEO. The fact that Saffron's appearance takes a lot of cues from Ciel might of played a part in that. This has lead to her doing some work for Liberion Arcadia here and there.
    • It's said that she's hit with quite the stupidity in her boss fight. While still a dangerous caster who is able to revive herself after being downed once she has the habit of attacking the plushies of her likeness. You know, the ones who's effectiveness crux on the fact that they retaliate against whoever damaged them? Not your finest moments, Saff. This was how she was able to befriend Draco Centauros, of all people, despite not nearly being bad at as her (although we're comparing combat to Puyo Puyo, so take that with a grain of salt). Seeing her interest in athletics, Draco sometimes trains her in martial arts even if Saffron is really confidant in her casting for her to consider other options.
    Saffron: Friendship!
    • Even though she's quite satisfied with what the House of Magic has to offer she does have one place she wants to look into one day: The Imperial Colleges of Magic, located in Ulthuan of the Warhammer World. The biggest hurdle when it comes to that place is the High Elves' superiority complex that pushes others away, something that Teclis (the very founder of the colleges) have been pushing towards overcoming following its introduction to the Pantheon. For her part, Saffron has been working on spells that would serve as milestones in her career.
    • "I guess you could call me a magical girl."
  • Reva only:
    • In both loadouts she's able to outright reflect oncoming attacks with her shield (self-damage included). While her default loadout focuses on building up as much shields as she possibly can through Phalanx spells, even through something as simple as moving, her alternate loadout of Beat conversely doubles down on retaliation with any hit (again, self-damage included) resulting in a attack of some sort. Fittingly as a boss she doesn't have much in the way of offense but besides obviously making up in defense the attack she does dish out will hurt. Oh, and she can summon Slashers to help her out. No biggie or anything.
    • The first ever deity to greet her after setting up shop in the Pantheon was Mash Kyrielight after helping her stand ground against the Marauders. After things settled down, Mash got Reva to meet up with other shield-wielders she managed to befriend in the Pantheon such as Captain America, Shield Knight, and Steven Universe. Getting along with them turned to be pretty easy thanks to Reva's desire to protect and her activism.
      Reva: The world could use more people like you.
      • As for other shield users, she didn't have that much problem getting along with Maple despite a) her power coming from a video game and not wanting to feel pain and b) using poison in her arsenal, Miseri spells exist, after all. Even if she's not quite a defender Reva has no problem with her being friends in the personal sense. Same goes for Brigitte, though it's more in line with her relationships with the other shield wielders and Reva respects the engineering talent she incorporates with her teachings from Reinhardt. As for Reinhardt himself she nods at his motivation and can see why Brigitte respects him so much. Kind of ironic, considering he's loves fighting but at least he's better about it than his younger self.
    • She doesn't get along with just everyone with and/or shields, though. Reva had a hard time partnering with Naofumi after hearing about the fact that he owned slaves and had trouble trusting women. It was only after hearing the circumstances that befell him that she decided to ease up on him. Still quite a shaky relationship, don't forget that, but Reva at least admits he's better than the other so-called heroes of his world. For his part, Naofumi respects the fact that she's at least true to herself and her ideals even after calamity struck civilization as she knew it before coming to Eden. As for Darkness, Reva could only be disappointed. Despite being a paladin, it's pretty obvious that she only takes up the role of defender to satisfy her masochism and for that Reva wants no part in that. At the end of the day, though, neither hold a candle to Gregor Clegane, whom she sees as a corruption what knights embody. On his part, he couldn't care less for what she thinks, though that only helps fuel the idea that she has absolutely zero qualms wasting him when given the chance.
    • Apparently, if Hazel's dialogue against her is anything to go off of, she has something against robots. Probably has something to do with whatever catastrophe that befell her home, or it may just be for the fact that they're often used as weapons of conflict. Either way, the Pantheon's various robots kinda complicates that mindset because you've got all sorts good and bad with them. To at least help adjust to the changes Hazel looked into some robots she could interact with and arranged for her to meet with S.A.T.8, AA-12, and Orisa. She at least figured they'd interact well. Getting past the former two's eccentricities, the engineer was right on the money and the meeting went well.
    • "We don't have to fight anymore."
  • Gunner only:
    • If you fond of gunplay then you've come to the right place with this guy. The Manafire loadout has him start out him some decent spells but with zero mana regen. Thus, his source of Mana would mainly come from hosing just about everything in your sights with M4 Manafire to bombard the enemy with his spell arsenal. Bullhell, however, strays from the use of spells (starting with only a Bomb Toss) in favor of riskier up-close and personal relationship with M3 Triwing. In both loadouts, shuffling the deck increases his attack so always be on the offensive when he's without spells and later on he's able. Later on, he's also able to trade in his gun for a M2 Hunter Seeker or a M1 Liofire. That big gun of his is powerful enough to boost himself and he takes it a step further in his boss fight to either get the high ground or ram himself right into his enemies.
    • Commonly stops by the House of Firearms to check on his armaments. Many of the users there use more lighter and more dated firearms than what he prefers, but at the very least he sees eye-to-eye with Seras Victoria and the Heavy Weapons Guy even if the latter remarked at how much of a baby he was. Not that he wasn't wrong, he is around Selicy's age, after all, so he just accepted it. It was through the Heavy that he meet his fellow mercenaries Mr. Jane Doe aka the Soldier and Tavish DeGroot aka the Demoman, who shared his preference towards explosives. Associating with them apparently earned the ire of the Classic Team, but she doesn't give it much thought. Perfect opportunity to wipe them out with his little friend. Ruby Rose, who like him also utilizes recoil boosts, was pretty interested in the various big guns he wielded being the designer of her own weapon.
    Ruby: You always blow me off by saying "Go ask Saffron" every time I come over to inquire about your guns, and she's always busy every time you say that. I get that she designed them, but you're their wielder! Would it be too much to ask a couple little questions at least?
    Gunner: I suppose wouldn't kill me to oblige. Go on, shoot.
    • Has aspirations about wielding the BFG 9000, he just isn't very vocal about it as many other people. It's not an uncommon sentiment, though. Any heavy weapon user worth their salt would be awed by such a tool of destruction such as it. In the meantime, Gunner has been retooling hit kits to prepare to deal with the Doom Slayer's various demonic foes on the possible chance that he crosses paths with them either on the job or by coincidence.
    • "Stand right there."
  • Selicy only:
    • What you see is what you get with Selicy: Slice and dice with some razor sharp ice. She's built around Frost Anima spells and her default loadout of Snow encourages her to zip around the battlefield and inflict Frost to lead into her Snowpiercer. Likewise, the Invade loadout encourages this tenfold with Fairfrozen allowing her to get right into the enemy's face and lane while moving as much as possible with Cool Shoes restoring her mana for each and every movement. As an opposing boss Selicy is incredibly mobile and really doubles down on getting up close and the giant icicle blades she sends out don't help.
    • Honestly, the existence of a House dedicated to the arctic temperatures was all that it took to get her hooked onto the Pantheon. So much so that she maybe, sort-of, flaked on her fellow travelers setting up their temple to go hang out at the House of Ice & Cold for a bit and stake her claim on some of the land as self-proclaimed queen. Wouldn't you know it, the House was everything she could of asked for and keeps in touch with many of its denizens. Outside of that House she managed to befriend Elsa, the Ice Climbers, and Glaceon. While Selicy is more friendly around these deities most agree on the fact that she's still a bit of a jerk.
      • Even as a jerk, she's not really evil. Even back then prior to reaching her destination. Contrast that with the likes of Lord Fredrik and Kaldr, two villainous individuals with affinities to ice. While she has no problems choosing to oppose them Selicy admits they're both admirable in a way. She'd really like to be able to summon ice dragons of her own one of these days and views Kaldr's control over the cold as something impressive. This respect is not something she shows to Frost or Ghiaccio, however. The former practically embodies the concept of arrogance and wastes no opportunity in putting down Selicy's own control over the cold while latter is a lowly drug dealer that's, ironically, quite easy to set off.
    • While walking around the Pantheon bored out of her mind she managed to catch wind of Teddie making some really lame bear puns. She was obligated to waltz up to him and call them out as such, admittedly also motivated by the fact she had nothing else better to do. It soon degenerated into a pun war and at some point Sans joined in on the action and it became a three-way. The only loser that day would be Papyrus, San's brother, for having to put up with all those puns in such a sitting.
    • "Ice to meet you."
  • Hazel only:
    • Hexawan spells are basically Hazel's thing. Build up structures with her initial loadout, starting off with turrets she is able to shield up and increase the firepower of to gain some protection herself. She's even able to redirect her creations and enemies alike to get them where it benefits her. Alternatively, the Teardown loadout encourages her to do the inverse with the dismantling things like Walls and Blast Crystals to gain Mana and Spellpower for herself as she launches the fragmentation right at her foes. As a boss, she brings the best of both worlds to the table. Flamethrower turrets, rows of giant missiles, or giant trash compactors that crush anything in their wake.
    • Wanted to make some friends with similar fields to trade some tips here and there. Her path ended up taking her to the likes of Dell Conagher, Vulcan, and Torbjörn, all capable machinists who just happen to also be well-versed in the art of turrets. She friendly to all of them, although she had to admit things are bit sour when regarding Torbjörn distrust for robots, even with the circumstances of his world it's completely understandable.
      Hazel: Machines are people too!
      • Speaking of Torb's world, Hazel found herself at a bit of contention between herself and Vishkar Corporation employee, Symmetra, when regarding her various "medieval" turrets due to their general lack of elegance. The ones involving crystals are a bit better, but they're far too behind in design compared to her constructs. Frankly, Hazel doesn't get all the fuss. If it works, it works. If there's one thing that they agree on it's the danger that the Eliksni (particularly the Devil Splicers) and Father Elijah represent in their technological pursuits. But other than that, nada. Hazel finds the fact they can't get along quite the waste, she really likes the hard-light technologies she brings to the table.
    • Came to know about Aperture Science's turret product line from the Engineer and Torbjörn one day and was curious on looking into the matter herself. Pretty soon Hazel found herself in a passion project that involves improving the Sentry Turrets in all sorts of ways. As far as she was concerned it seemed a bit bogus that they turned out pretty helpless thanks to Aperture Science's eccentricities. The singing is cute, though.
    • "I can make stuff for you too!"
  • Terra only:
    • Contrasting Saffron, Terra is a user of more traditional magic. Her name literally denotes her default element of manipulating the terrain for her benefit with Hearth spells. As such, controlling the battlefield and the space in which her opponents move is crucial to her success. The trend continues with Pyro where she's setting everything on fire instead. As an opposing boss, as either Terra or Terrable, she really only utilizes the former loadout as per her namesake, but she's formidable nonetheless if one isn't quick but methodical in moving around. Anything less would play right into her hands.
    • What do you know, Terra likes to visit the House of Earth & Rock. What a shock, or rather, what a rock? ... Anyways, she's usually there if she wants to test out some new spells and improve her craft. Generally people don't mind her despite her less than clean past and she doesn't mind them. The only exceptions to this are Medusa (cause of that stony gaze) and Sakazuki, who thinks she was let off easy by her fellow travelers as Terrable. Terra doesn't have anything to say to him that hasn't been said already: His so-called "justice" is just utter rubbish.
    • Aside from Earth and Rock Terra also frequents the House of Craft to satisfy her fix on breaking things since things pretty much always changing there. Built, torn down, built again, torn down, it's quite the busy place. She also helps out the House when it is periodically assaulted by the titanic Shen Gaoren and its various variants.
    Terra: I'm just here to break things.
    • Can get very easily confused for Terra Branford and the Keyblade Wielder, Terra, because there isn't a nice way to easily differentiate her from them that rolls off the tongue that she's also satisfied with. Surprisingly, she was able to get along with those Terras quite easily. Primarily, this stems from realizing that Terra means no ill-will anymore and that they were victims of becoming evil themselves.
    • "Dust do dust."
  • Shiso only:
    • For Shiso, the weapons he has on hand are more important than the spellpower dished out. For Execute, his revolver is Cast from Money with half of what he currently has determining the final damage dealt, and he is returned some when dealing a killing blow. Thus, one must hoard as much currency as one possibly can while getting things that either soffen up his targets or hold them still for a good chance to administer the killing blow. Kunai, by contrast, is more straightforward. His focus regards Slashfik spells, specifically starting out with the ones involving throwing knives. And speaking of being straightforward, it's a pretty apt description for his fight as a boss. Not too crazy on throwing stuff out, demanding reaction time instead to pull through lest one's offensive options get greatly diminished by the amount of jams and shuffles he induces.
    • Being a gunslinger himself it obviously wouldn't do for him to not interact with the Pantheon's other peerless pistol-users and has earned the respect of Jesse McCree, Rushuna Tendou, and Guido Mista. Though he reciprocates the sentiments he does tend to darkly joke at the fact that Mista is a bullet-sponge for his own bullets. Erron Black, meanwhile, sees Shiso as competition. He doesn't mind, however, being curious as to see what the Outworlder is capable of. The test of skill wouldn't hurt too badly.
    • Wasn't all sunshine and rainbows with the various gunmen, though. Yosemite Sam and Hol Horse wanted to square up against Shiso, thinking he's not all that tough if he has to rely on a little bit of magic to get his way. Alas, he really was quite the skilled marksman. Meanwhile, Shiso encountered the likes of Jude the Dude and Vincent Godfrey as hostiles during their aimless rampages. While he did deal with Jude quite easily, the match against Vincent left both combatants gravely wounded. Shiso doesn't look forward to meeting him again, but he'd be damned if he's just going to keel over when they do indeed have a rematch.
    Shiso: Some guns you got there.
    • Apparently, some gods and goddesses say he gives off an aura not too different from the likes of Neo and John Wick. With the way the three of them work Shiso hasn't had the chance to properly meet them, and it times it slips from his mind in favor of other things, but he has shown interest in doing so one day.
    • "I've been saving this one for you."
  • Violette only:
    • Dance and battle are both one and the same with Violette, as both player and opponent. In Doubletime, she's a Dance Battler where different moves after playing her violin grant different effects. Most of the time, she's building herself up as a Glass Cannon as every instance of being inflicted Fragile gives her more and more Spell Power in return. Combined with the ability to also restore Mana, stack up Trinity, and even Shield herself and Violette can dish out. Aria, by contrast, is something of the opposite. She remains still playing to refill her Mana but also poisons herself and in every single battle she starts off poisoned but also heal whatever damage was initially dealt. Ergo, Violette is to stave off the poison at any opportunity which can do by resetting the timer every time she plays but the Mana she generates should be used to end fights very quickly. Her fight as a boss takes the most liberties out of everyone, attacking to the flow of her own theme and at times forcing her opponents to dance to the music too. To say nothing of the pillars of light or the speakers she calls forth that really restrict any wriggle room.
    • Was glad to be given the opportunity to play with fellow violinists such as Kaori Miyazono, Yurika Kirishima, and Contender. Beyond that, she also had the pleasure of performing alongside Kousei Arima (Kaori's lover), Kaede Akamatsu, and Skull. She was visibly saddened when she heard that Kaori and Kaede both passed away in their respective universes, but wasn't that way for long. After all, they're both here now alive and well. Plus:
    Violette: Music never dies!
    • Holding music and performance in such a high regard, classical in particular, she doesn't like Maestro Forte and the Mad Piano for bringing a bad name with them. She particularly has it out for the piano for the sheer cacophonies it plays. And the eating people part, that's also pretty bad. James Marcus once came to one of her concerts one day and after it was over he went out of his way to complement her for her skill. At first, she was quite flattered but it wasn't until Violette discovered that "Marcus" was actually a leech monstrosity affiliated with the Umbrella Corporation was when the complement hit a little different. Just a bit. Then there was Scaramouche, who for whatever reason was hired to go after one of her fellow travelers. She intercepted him and was able to fend him off, and in such a melodious manner in their fight, but she doesn't look forward to clashing with him again.
    • "Lucky you! You get a free concert!"
  • Shopkeeper only:
    • Thus far, she holds the title to having one of the most unusual of playstyles out of the playable cast, revolving around money like Shiso but to an exaggerated degree. Her current amount of money dictates the maximum number of health she has with attacking and taking damage costing it. The upside to all of this is that Shopkeeper can access her own shop at any point with the spells and artifacts being free to buy. So what she may lack in durability she can certainly make up in offense. More than likely the very last character to be unlocked as doing so is only possible through defeating her as a boss. Now, as an opposing boss... good lord is she fond of screen filling attacks. Shopkeeper does not mess around. Picking a fight with her will certainly leave a lasting impression, figuratively and literally.
    • An enterprising merchant on the dangerous road to Eden, she got along swimmingly with the likes of Recette Lemongrass, Anna, and Tressa Colzione despite being technically business rivals, even getting past that... unpleasant side of the Shopkeeper. At times, the Shopkeeper has been known to quote Recette when dealing business. She also gets along with The Merchant and Crazy Dave, seeing past their eccentricities and instead looking at how they're quite successful businessmen. Getting along with the latter has set off Dr. Zomboss, although even he's cautious when planning against her.
    • Despite her strength, there are those in the Pantheon who still underestimate her for what she's truly capable of. One time while touring the House of Commerce for some new clients she was robbed by the Murkrow Flock and a bunch of other thieves. Normally, when someone tries to cross she'd give them the benefit of the doubt before pulling her sleeves but since they stole her products she threw away all sense of mercy by point: It's a cardinal sin to get personal, you know. Now, while Foul Play is indeed a fearsome attack, the Shopkeeper doesn't slack behind in terms of heavy hits herself. Thing is, she's also got them on quick succession. And we're also talking about a girl who for whatever reason possesses the Yami spell, which is integral to killing Serif on a Genocide run. With that said she had no hesitant in coming after the flock. On a totally unrelated note, the hospitalization rate involving falling ATMs has coincidentally skyrocketed.
      Shopkeeper: This is so sad. F.
      • Word of this incident eventually reached the Kecleon Brothers' ears and it immediately earned their respect given how they deal with thieves. Since then, she has kept in touch with the two dungeon merchants.
    • Used to carry a giant backpack with her when setting up shop but she has since dropped it and kinda just pulls out her wares out of the ether. When asked about why she made the change she just said it was heavy. That's it. It's not a philosophical question or one that deals in rocket science, it's just that simple.
    • "Check out my stuff!"

Demigods

    The Sole Survivor 
Nate/Nora, The Sole Surviving Deity (Blue - by Piper)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sole_survivor.png
  • Theme Song: It's All Over But the Crying by The Inkspots
  • Demigod/dess
  • Symbol: A Vault 111 Jumpsuit and a Pair of Wedding Rings
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: The Player Character And Their Canine Companion, Action Dad/Action Mom Who Is Either A Badass Army Veteran or Lawyer, Crusading Widowed Spouse, Dull Surprise, Fish out of Temporal Water, Gadgeteer Genius, Deadpan Snarker, Happily Married, Human Popsicle, Mama Bear/Papa Wolf, Shell-Shocked Veteran
  • Domains: Army Veterans, Lawyers, The Commonwealth Wasteland
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Any and all Evil Robots and Evil Mercenaries in the Pantheon.
  • Wary Around: The T-800 Mk.II
  • The Sole Survivor is a unique addition to the Pantheon, seeing as how they were actually alive on the day that the Great War began (and ended) on October 23, 2077. Bonus points for not being a ghoul in that case...although he was forced to put down his ghoulified neighbors when they attacked him/her.
    • Because of this, he has made friends with both the Courier and the Lone Wanderer (although the latter has not ascended yet) as they also traversed the blasted landscape of what was once America, the former seeking vengeance and the latter searching for their missing dad.
  • The Lone Wanderer was surprised to see MacCready as one of the Sole Survivor's heralds, showing that he came a long way from being the foul-mouthed, pint-sized mayor of Little Lamplight. MacCready was also surprised to see the Lone Wanderer in the Pantheon.
  • Like the Lone Wanderer and the Courier, no one doesn't know their true gender and occupation before the Great War. Some say that the Sole Survivor's name is Nate and he was a combat veteran with the 2nd Battalion, 108th Infantry Regiment, having seen action during the Sino-American War. Others say that her name is Nora and she is a law school graduate. Either way, the Commonwealth was not the same once the Sole Survivor emerged from Vault 111.
  • Although they knows that the T-800 (Uncle Bob) is a good guy, the Sole Survivor keeps their distance, given their personal connection to the Institute and the synths they produce.
  • The Sole Survivor is also on friendly terms with Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor. Kyle can be seen at the Sole Survivor's temple, listening to the deity's stories about the world before the war.
  • The Sole Survivor both said that Wonder Woman sounds strikingly similar to Magnolia, the jazz singer at The Third Rail.
  • She-Hulk and Matt Murdock/Daredevil both had seen Nora in action and both say that Nora is a talented attorney. There is talk about her joining the Court of the Gods...once they find out who's who in regards to Nate and Nora.
  • Mistaken The Hulk and Martian Manhunter as Super Mutants. Fortunately, Captain America and Batman managed to defuse the situation before the Sole Survivor fired a Mini-Nuke at the pair.
  • The Sole Survivor said that Cassie Cage sounds exactly like Cricket, a Commonwealth Wasteland merchant and Institute informant.
  • Aside from that, the Sole Survivor has his hands full in keeping his heralds in check, of which include an Irish pit-fighter, a newspaper reporter, a Ghoul who fancies colonial attire, a Synth who works as a detective, and a former Gunner mercenary.

    Zaeed Massani 
Zaeed Massani, God of Those who would have Normally been Dead (The Mercenary Veteran, The Veteran, Co-Founder of the Blue Suns, Mass Effect's "Chuck Norris")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_1263.PNG
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His old M-8 Avenger rifle, "Jessie", alongside a couple of Inferno Grenades. Alternatively, the Blue Suns logo tattooed on his neck.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (Though he veers into Chaotic Good when working with Shepard.)
  • Portfolio: Anti-Hero, Cool Old Guy who ocassionally lets out Cluster F Bombs, Bad Boss who still has reservations on things, Determinator, Good Scars, Evil Scars coupled with a Glass Eye, Kills with Inferno Grenades, Iron Brit with Lack of Empathy, He who survived a point-blank headshot, Old Soldier, Optional Party Member, Shouting Shooter who cusses aplenty, Token Evil Teammate who Took a Level in Kindness
  • Domains: War, Death, Fire, Combat
  • Allies:
  • Headbutting Heroes (on very rare ocassions) with: Lobo and Buffy Summers
  • Enemies: The Illusive Man, Ali Al-Saachez, Gauron, All evil-aligned deities from the House of Betrayal
  • His ascension was spearheaded by Deities from the House of Life and Death, when they found out about his backstory (with consultation from Commander Shepard, of course.) According to official records, he survived a point-blank headshot from his fellow Blue Suns co-founder Vido Santiago, while he was held down by six of his own men. This also explains his abrasive attitude towards deities from the House of Betrayal, as he tends to recall the ordeal through the pain he feels on the side of the face where his Glass Eye is located.
    • Compared to Shepard, who was at least revived through intervention by Cerberus's Lazarus Project, he got back on his own with little to no help. When he was asked as to how he survived, he answered: "A stubborn enough person can survive just about anything; rage is a hell of an anasthetic."
  • Many deities were rather wary of his reputation for getting people around him killed, particularly those of equal and lower rank to him. While others are concerned about his ocassional swearing, especially his use of the word "Goddamn" (which to him is a massive Irony in itself when he ascended.)
    • His dossier has racked up a lot of very amusing facts about himself that some deities have made comparisons to Chuck Norris. Not helped by the fact that most of them did come from some of Zaeed's previous exploits during his Blue Suns days, and his time as a freelance bounty hunter. Among his favorites were his ability to interrupt a Renegade Interrupt, to which neither he nor Chuck wishes to comment on the matter.
  • Among the deities who have worked with Commander Shepard before, Zaeed is one of the least visible yet most oft-spoken of the bunch. His work relationship with the Human Specte is a bit sketchy at times, given his more "Renegade" alignment, and the fact that he is usually Only in It for the Money.
    • Nonetheless, he is as loyal to Shepard as the rest of the Normandy crew, as the latter helped him chase down his double-crossing Blue Suns co-founder. Reports of how the said mission ended vary, but there was no question that they both opened lots of flaming cans of whoop-ass against the Suns.
  • Has also been steady buddies with Garrus ever since that time when they plotted to rig Shepard's Apartment with Booby Traps. In particular, Zaeed once tried to rig Shep's bath tub for what he described as "Arma-Fucking-Geddon!" Ditto with Javik and Wrex, as they usually enjoy target practice involving bottles of beer in the very same apartment.
  • His relationship with Lobo is rather sketchy at best. Both have been together on a few missions across the galaxy, but both would claim to be the best Bounty Hunter therein. Though they are usually on good terms as long as some beer is involved.
  • As for his relationship with Buffy, he reminded her so much of Ethan Rayne, from his status as a (former) mercenary, to his Evil Brit behavior, and even down to having the same actor; though she is more appreciative of him since Ethan actually helped her back then, which led to his death. Zaeed kinda understood where she's coming from, but was quick to clarify that he's leagues different from Ethan.
  • Has been working alongside Mr. Bauer due to their similar choice in interrogation techniques; whenever Zaeed starts crunching his knuckles, they're bound to get the info they need, without even causing physical harm.
  • Thanks to developing some soft spots for the young after surviving the Suicide Mission with Shepard and his crew, Zaeed has been indirectly helping out in funding the church that Mana and Clarice were protecting. Conversely, he thinks allowing Child Soldiers are just as bad as when Vido allowed Batarians into the Blue Suns, which definitely put him at odds with Gauron and Ali (In his own words: "Cheaper labor, they said; goddamn terrorists, I said.")
  • Got pissed for a bit when he had a go with a crane booth in the Hose of Gaming. He does return to the same booth on ocassion, being an "all-in" kind of guy and all.

  • Fuuka amazed her followers when she barely survived getting hit by a truck, which was, according to the Houses of House of Life and Death and Narrative, where she was supposed to die. Surprised by this sudden development, the Court of the Gods offered Fuuka a place in the Pantheon and she enthusiastically agreed.
  • Most of the time, Fuuka goes to the House of Music to improve her singing and songwriting skills. Seeing her potential, Sheryl Nome took her as her protegé.
  • Because of a truck was the cause of her death in the manga, Fuuka was asked by the House of Justice to make a PSA about the importance of obeying the laws of traffic, to which she reluctantly accepted.
    • This brought about some awkwardness when she met Optimus Prime. After she was killed by a truck in the manga, and he is a truck. Fortunately, they got over it fairly quickly and became friends.
  • Given their similar voices, she is good friends with Azura, Lisesharte Atismata, Raphael and Mei-Ling Zhou. Some bystanders have noted that Fuuka's singing voice is the same as her speaking voice, but Azura's voice changes while singing, much to Azura's confusion. And before you ask, yes, she does covers of "if ~ hitori omou" (Internationally: "Lost in Thoughts All Alone").
  • Her unexpected survival caused a small schism in the House of Narrative in regards to the course of her story. Some believe that averting her death in the anime makes her story unpredictable and her death in the manga was controversial anyway. Others hold the opinion that her death was a crucial moment in the manga and her survival becomes superfluous anyways with her leaving Fallen Moon. Fuuka just facepalms at the whole thing and dedicates herself to the her godly work.
  • Occassionally gets offers the House of Sports to join their events; after all, her parents were star athletes in their youths. Flattered as she might be, Fuuka has declined, as she shows no notable athletic skills. At least she can throw a mean punch.
  • Very good friends with Chihiro Kosaka, as they both share a passion in music and found themselves in similar situations with Yuu and Keima. At the same time, Fuuka cannot help but feel sorry that Tenri Ayukawa sacrificed her affection for Keima so that he could be happy with Chihiro; because that's exactly what Koyuki Hinashi did for Yuu.
  • Befriended Ashi and Mayuri, who shared the tragic similarity of dying before their hero could save them. Fuuka does point out that she survived in the anime adaptation, something that makes Mayuri and Ashi a bit jealous. Nevertheless, they remain good friends.
  • Used to be friends with Heinz Windermere, who thought of her as a Cool Big Sis. They practiced singing together and she came to visit him whenever he felt sick. Fuuka was horrified that Heinz used had his singing to hurt people and spread a disease on a galactic scale. The end of their friendship was one of the most heartbreaking tales in the Pantheon.
    Heinz: "I cannot take back the things I've done. The deaths I've caused will be on my conscience. But I do know you still mean a lot to me, Fuuka. I don't want to lose you. I ask you to find it within your heart the strength to forgive me. Can you do that for me?"
    Fuuka: "I can't. Even if I did, you are no longer the Heinz I knew. You're a totally different person to me now. Things have changed... forever..."
    • Fuuka and Heinz haven't spoken to each other ever since.
  • On a brighter note, Yuu had ascended a few weeks later. Fuuka was overjoyed and ran to his temple to greet him. Suddenly, as soon as she reached him, she lost her footing and fell to the ground. Yuu tried to catch her and ended up grabbing her breasts. Everyone present suddenly burst in laughter, to the embarassment of the two youths.
