There are some in the House of Health and Diseases who could not find a specific niche. As such, they can be found here. The Medical Miscellaneous sub-house is styled as a large recreation area covering the grounds of the giant hospital building, lacking much of the security of the other sub-housesnote . Gods who want to apply for another sub-house start trying out here.

  • Odd Friendship: with Pyramid Head (long story, just go with it) Joshua Graham, Kabal, and Anakin Skywalker
  • Sacred To: Silent Hill
  • Heather Mason. Cheryl Mason. Alessa Gillespie. No matter the name she goes by, the adopted daughter of Harry Mason has earned her place in the Pantheon after foiling The Order's plans in forcing her to bring about the Apocalypse...or Paradise.
  • The Pantheon was on the lookout for a 17-year-old blonde girl in a white jacket, orange shirt, a miniskirt and a pair of boots. They didn't bat an eyelash to the blonde in a sleeveless white shirt, denim shorts and shoes. Only when they realized they had been tricked, did they have a good laugh about it.
    • Heather has a good reason why as to keep her ascension private, albeit it didn't do her any good. As Alessa, she was a part of The Order, a religious doomsday cult operating out of Silent Hill and Shepherd's Glen. She is "the one who will lead us to Paradise with blood stained hands." In other words, the God of The Order will bring about Paradise...after purging our world with hellfire.
    • Much to her annoyance, the surviving members of the The Order worship her as Saint Alessa, due to her ascension, and see her becoming a goddess due to providence.
  • Heather is in truth, Alessa Gillespie reincarnated. Long story made short, she was born as Alessa, but was burned alive when she was seven in an attempt to bring about the Order's God. Her soul split in two, her good half became Cheryl Mason while the dark half reogned over Silent Hill. Seven years after the fire, Cheryl returned to Silent Hill, where she was reborn once again. Heather Mason is an alias she uses to keep the Order off her back. For a while, it worked.
  • As Alessa, Heather had been burned alive by the order in order to fully awaken her powers and bring about the Apoca...er, Paradise. She still has memories of the event, which has led her to have a case of Pyrophobia. Such deities as Anakin Skywalker, Joshua Graham and Kabal understand her pain.
  • As she has ties to Silent Hill (due to being responsible for its current state as Alessia), she can venture into the town without being assaulted by the various monsters there. Even Pyramid Head gives her a wide berth. Fortunately, Heather rarely ventures into the cursed town.
  • Hates Stannis Baratheon and Melissandre for burning his daughter, Shireen Baratheon to death. Given how she was immolated as Alessa, it's not surprising.
  • Rosemary Woodhouse understands all too well what Heather is going through, since she herself had went through something similar. Only rather than having her heart filled with hatred to nuture her child, she was prescribed unknown drugs by her doctor, and found out too late that her son is the prophesied Antichrist. Even Heather had to admit that was seven shades of fucked up.
  • Luke Skywalker mistook Heather for a Jedi after seeing the Beam Saber on her person and using it to hack apart a giant Numb Body. While Heather is not tuned into the Force, he has been teaching her how to properly wield the Beam Saber more effectively.
  • Even Heather admits that she survived her ordeal by the skin of her teeth. This is where Claire Redfield comes in, acting as Heather's firearms instructor, as her brother had done to her. But if the guns aren't powerful enough, there's Heather's alter ego, Princess Heart, complete with a Sailor Moon-esque transformation sequence. Corny, yes, but the Heather Beam and its more powerful counterpart, the Sexy Beam, make up for it.
  • A former smoker, Heather had quit the habit, which earns her brownie points with Billy Kane.
  • Alexander Anderson knows full well of both Heather and The Order, as the Vatican's Iscariot Branch has detailed files of the apocalyptic cult. But the fact that Heather has friends in high places gives him pause, as even he can't take that kind of abuse, even with Helena's Nail.
  • Leatherface has a thing for blondes. Heather is not a natural blonde, which pisses him off plenty. It's also quite possibly the only time Heather is thankful to have Pyramid Head as an ally, as he was able to distract the cannibal long enough to blast him with the Sexy Beam.
  • While not all abominations are bad guys, Heather outright loathes the Old Gods, The Eldrazi, and The Great Ones. But the Old Gods top her list due to their goal of bringing forth more spawn at the cost of human lives. The evil abominations oppose her due to her rejecting what they saw as her destiny in birthing God.
  • Heather met up with Roahm while he was on one of his Halloween vacations, and is on good terms with him. She doesn't know what to make of his claim that Alessa is his primary travel agent, however.
  • It took a while, but Heather was finally able to reunite with her father, Harry Mason. The two stared at each other in disbelief before she rushed into his arms and cried for quite some time.
  • Has a phobia of mirrors, and thus is terrified that Bloody Mary is in the Pantheon. Thankfully she's getting over it, albeit gradually.

Lesser Gods

    Ellen Ripley 
Ellen Ripley, Goddess of Justified Extermination (Lieutenant Ripley)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9a737065_caff_4dcf_abe1_f4d6ba14edab.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A flamethrower crossed with an M41A Pulse Rifle
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolios: Action Heroine, Final Girl Survival Mantra, Killing Things with Fire, Action Mom. Friend of all Cats, Mama Bear, Only Sane Woman
  • Domains: Law, Good, Destruction, Protection, Honor
  • Followers: Dana, all non-ascended Resident Evil protagonists, The Forerunners
  • Allies: Dwayne Hicks, Jenette Vasquez, Lance Bishop, Samus Aran, Ciaphas Cain, The Metroid Hatchling, Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott, The House of Children, Kirito and Asuna, Bryan Mills, all cat deities, Cammy White, The Ghostbusters, Kenshiro, Demon King Piccolo, Indiana Jones, Rosemary Woodhouse, River Tam
  • Enemies: Xenomorphs, Facehuggers, Ash, Indominus Rex, Victor Frankenstein, Cell
  • Opposes: Red Skull, Voldemort, Kefka, Daleks, Gihren Zabi
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Android 18
  • Conflicting Opinion: Frankenstein's Monster
  • One of the first Action Heroines in cinema as well as surviving countless hordes of one of the most ruthless alien beings in the pantheon was enough for the Pantheon to award Ellen Ripley with godhood.
  • One of the first gods to offer an alliance was Ciaphas Cain. He claimed he arrived to speak to Ellen about his approval in the handling of the Xenomorphs. Though she had a feeling it was actually due to his fear that they may one day walk about the Pantheon, a fear both share.
  • Shares a bond with Samus, keeping her company at times. The two have experienced many horrors of space, managing to overcome them all on their own multiple times. Samus is currently teaching that not all foreign organisms are evil; the Metroid Hatchling took a liking to her (with Ellen keeping a safe distance just to be sure). Eventually, Ellen did warm up to the hatchling.
  • Believes that Indominus Rex is an abomination and should be killed immediately. She shakes her head to the scientists who thought that creating such a creature was a good idea in the first place. It doesn't help that her most hated enemy is the high priest. She's keeping watch to make sure that the Xenomorph Queen doesn't ascend herself.
  • Despises Victor Frankenstein for trying to mess with forces she thinks no scientist will ever be able to understand. Is often accused of sabotaging his experiments. As for the monster he's most famous for... she's not sure what to make of him. Some versions are obviously evil, while others may actually be good. She's reserving judgement on him for now.
  • Is wary of all synthetic humans, as the first one she met tried to kill her. Although she has long since overcome those fears, she still keeps an eye out on even the heroic ones such as Android 18. However, she is more than willing to stamp out a more dangerous creation: Cell. She may not be able to back up her threats, but she at least has an ally that can.
  • Survived a summer camp with 5 other gods and a mortal. She gave credit to Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott for keeping her safe during the ordeal. The two final girls were sympathetic of Ripley's plight in her dealings with the Xenomorphs.
  • Her brave effort to save a young mortal by the name of Newt gained the admiration of the House of Children.
  • Is naturally a cat person, gaining the favor of all cat deities. Cammy White became close friends with her as a result. The two raise funds for downtroden cats.
  • Once met by Peter Venkman, who gave her a surprising embrace. Turns out he mistook her for Dana Barrett. Ellen had to let him down easy, telling him that just because the two shared the same actress doesn't make them one and the same. Although he was disappointed, he offered up the ghost-hunting service on the house.
  • With that said she does not condone those who exterminae friendly aliens or foreigners. Any follower who uses her divine powers on such will get their ass kicked by her personally followed by their immediate loss of cleric abilities. As such she opposes all gods who revel in such activities.
  • Often seen having beer and playing pool with one Commander Bryan Mills, Professor Henry Jones Junior, Kenshiro and Piccolo; the action heroes have taken a great liking to each other for ALL being parents who took on (and single-handedly) destroyed armies to protect their beloved children.
  • Ripley's valiant battle to save Newt from the clutches of The Alien Queen has earned the respect and admiration of Kirito and Asuna, themselves parents who would lay down their lives to protect their adoptive little girl Yui. As a result, she is recently invited to take the Team Mom position of The League of Adoptive Parents, which after some prodding from Yui (and Newt herself), the Lieutenant of the Nostromo graciously accepts.
  • Is on good terms with Rosemary Woodhouse, having felt sorry for her after hearing what happened to her in her story.
  • Is a good friend of the Ghostbusters, even if sometimes they get scared of her destructive methods.

  • Can cure any STD, given time and motivation.
  • Opposes Admiral ZEX, worked to take Interspecies Romance portfolio from him, dangerous in wrong hands. Title ended up in control of "Monster Girls", good choice, fascinating creatures.

  • Usually in the House of Knowledge. Comes over here since services in matters of "The Talk" are *sharp inhale* direly needed.

  • Realized what Deadly Doctor truly meant. Did not approve of it. Gave position to Valentine.

    SCP-542 
SCP-542, God of Self-Surgery (Herr Chirurg)
  • Lesser God (Euclid by SCP standards)
  • Symbol: A sample of his fragmented DNA
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil to others, True Neutral in his own mind
  • Portfolio: Body Horror, Mad Doctor, Excellent Auto-Surgeons, Steals Organs, No Compatibility Issues, Herr Doctor, Morally Ambiguous Doctorate, Affable Lunatics, Worked With The Nazis, Obliviously Evil, Deadly Doctor
  • Domains: Surgery, Mad Science, Organ Donation, Medical Knowledge, Stitches
  • Under watch by: The SCP Foundation
  • Allies: Nazi deities (to a certain extent), Jack the Ripper, The Medic, Fran Madaraki, Bondrewd, Vandar Adg

  • Enemies: Dib Membrane, The Basterds, Jack Harkness, Czeslaw Meyer, Prometheus and most gods with a Healing Factor, Josuke Higashikata, Giorno Giovanna, Black Jack, the Elric brothers
  • Opposed by: Every sane and good physician in the pantheon
  • SCP-542, preferred name Herr Chirurg is one of the many human-like figures under watch by the SCP Foundation. Shown to have an IQ around 150, and has most likely was born in the late 19th century. This German surgeon is an expert at surgery, mainly on himself. He doesn't need or care about anesthetic, and infection doesn't seem a problem. Constantly stitching himself together, the result is a "Frankenstein's Monster"-looking doctor who doesn't look too human any more.
  • Herr Chirurg is usually a rather friendly individual fond of playing chess, but that all changes when he needs to repair himself. To keep himself alive he steals the organs of other people and replaces his own. A liver, kidneys, anything to fix himself. Compatibility is not an issue and his body doesn't reject the organs. Despite his creepiness, the SCP Foundation has kept him around to study this. The Houses of Crime and Slaughter are interested as well due to being an expert in organ theft.
  • Most physicians in the pantheon oppose him due to his Mad Doctor personality, particularly fellow surgeon Black Jack. He is connected to at least 45 deaths, perhaps 60 or even more. However like SCP-049 he isn't truly evil, just ignorant to the suffering he causes. The two are neutral towards each other, but like most Herr Chirurg doesn't believe the plague is an issue. Neither would like to admit their similarities.
  • There are doctors that get along with him, though that's because they're as crazy as him. The Medic and him soon became friends due to their twisted surgery, and together have "helped" many patients. He admires the surgical skills of Fran Madaraki as well. Avoiding an operating table from the three at all costs. SCP-542 will give some genuine medical advice however, and enjoys discussing science and biology.
  • Dib Membrane was utterly horrified to learn of SCP-542 as his organ theft reminded him of Zim's "Dark Harvest", where he stole kids' organs to make himself seem human. Herr Chirurg balked at the comparison, believing the Irken invader "mishandled" the transformation and has a lot to learn about human biology. A comparison by the Elric brothers to Shou Tucker due to his gruesome medical surgery came off as an insult to him. Not because he considered Tucker revolting, but because he thought the man was an amateur.
  • Very interested in gods with a Healing Factor since those organs will last longer. Due to how his immortality was abused Czeslaw suffered from some PTSD upon learning about him, and Jack Harkness is keeping the hell away from him since the good doctor is interested in his immortality. He is also interested in Josuke and Giorno's Stand since it can manipulate living matter.
  • Vandal Savage is one of the few who likes his skill in taking body parts, given that he cannibalizes his relatives to help maintain his immortality. Bondrewd appreciates his use of Human Resources. SCP-542 can be seen working with Jack the Ripper due to his serial killings having a surgical precision, making it easier to harvest the body parts he needs.
  • While a rather disturbed doctor, even he has second thoughts on Cioccolata and Fabius Bile. Not that he won't work with them, he's just reluctant. While he admires Cioccolata's skills and what he can use Green Day with, Cioccolata's extreme sadism comes off as somewhat disturbing for him. Fabius Bile's skills at medicine are in his eyes something to be admired, but some of the stuff he does with it even he couldn't do.
  • Described himself as "dreadfully normal" before World War 1, later joining the Nazis in World War 2. This wasn't out of any ideological reason, considering their goals to be "boringly simple", but they did give him a lot more opportunities. He is happy to continue medical research for them in the pantheon, and may have been involved in the same extra-normal field that Stroheim's German science was part of.
  • Rather critical towards the Think Tank for their bizarre views of human biology. Doesn't think highly of the Autodoc since when they use it to perform lobotomies it left many mindless. Yes, he's in a state of Body Horror but it is much more successful and humanoid for the progress and resources he has.

  • Gang leader Ash Lynx was out on the streets one night, when a dying man drops dead in front of him and speaks of an address and a "Banana Fish". As he was trying to figure it out, a Japanese boy named Eiji Okumura visits his place one day and after escaping an assault by the men of his boss, Dino Golzine, Ash sets out to solve the mystery of the "Banana Fish". Along the way, he lost those he held dear like his best friends Shorter Wong and Skip and his brother Griffin Callenreese and as he grew closer to Eiji, the more he has to lose as his enemies began to threaten Eiji's safety. It turns out that the "Banana Fish" is a mind control drug that can render someone into a vegetative state with some violent outbursts and Golzine plans to use it to control the U.S. government from within.
    • It all comes to a head when Ash's fellow gang members and Max Lobo were captured in the National Institute of Mental Health and Ash stages an assault with capturing Golzine as a hostage where the hired mercenary Colonel Edward L. Fox had his own plans of using the "Banana Fish". Fox is eventually defeated and the "Banana Fish" and its data is unfortunately lost but Ash and his allies managed to already digged up dirt on Golzine's associates beforehand which can snowball from a scandal into exposing Golzine's conspiracy and allies, ending his shadow reign for good. But as everything is coming back to normal, Ash got stabbed by one of Sing Soo-Ling's former fellow gang member and succumbed to his fatal wound at the New York Public Library after reading Eiji's letter to him. Years later, Eiji became aware of Ash's death and mourned to the point that he would never marry anyone else. Eiji later recounts his memories to Akira Ibe, Shunichi's niece and told her about a blonde boy he had met during his trip to America.
  • Eiji was in his cabin one day when he received a letter; he opens it and it says that he's been invited to the Trope Pantheons for a pending title. As he began to wonder to himself what is the letter talking about, a light shines in one of his room's doors and he began to open it. Meanwhile, Ash wakes up in the now empty New York Library with his fatal stab wound miraculously gone and his letter from Eiji in hand, when the doorway is suddenly bathed in a bastion of light. He goes to approached it closely and... found himself in a courtroom but it's not just any courtroom, it's one that feels like a Senate courtroom; there, Eiji also walked into the courtroom and immediately glomped onto the floor, ecstatic to see Ash alive again which warmed some jurors' hearts because of what they had gone through before.
    • After the tender moment, The Judge clears the air and announces to them that they are pending for the title of Divine Unravelers of Fantastic Drugs as their story is about the mystery of the Banana Fish drug and preventing its future exploitation against America's political system. Even though that journey brought them nothing but pain and heartbreak, they decided to accept the title regardless if it means seeing each other again and so, their new position is cemented. The Judge does warn Ash that because he's dead, he cannot return to his world again to see Eiji, but the latter's okay with it because he wanted to be free of his past anyways.
    • As they are allowed to have people they know as Heralds, the boys did not hesitate in their choices: the journalist Max Lobo who has been researching Banana Fish for years and is close to Ash's brother Griffin, Shunichi Ibe who brought Eiji to America, Ash's notable men Alex, Bones, Skipper and Kong, the gang leaders Sing Soo-Ling and Cain Blood and finally, Shorter Wong. All of them are happy to see the boys again, especially towards Ash since he died last they heard of him but Ash brushed them aside as he proclaims he's in a better place than the America he knows. But Ash and Eiji had a heartfelt reunion with Shorter, considering that Shorter got experimented on to test the Banana Fish's effects and was forcibly shot by Ash partly to break his spirit as well as giving Eiji a hard time losing a fast friend, but Shorter says that he's fine and dandy now that his body is just like before; it still gives him an ire towards mind control drugs from now on. As usual, they are welcome to enter and leave the Pantheons if they want but in Shorter's and Skip's case, they'll have to hold the fort of Ash and Eiji's temple instead since they passed on.
  • Among the first allies they have made are Saber AKA King Artoria Pendragon, Sakura Matou and her sister Rin Tohsaka when the three saved the boys from the Archer Servant Gilgamesh one night. Saber relates to Ash in being psychologically trapped in their own way, with Saber struggling to be the perfect king and Ash getting by while being under the hands of Golzine and both found people who accepts them as they truly are and freed them from whatever's trapping them; Saber is glad that Ash is able to pull himself from his hellish life and Ash at first couldn't believe that King Arthur could be a woman in one universe but comes to slowly accept it (more so when the actual King Arthur is also around) and is glad Saber eventually got to be herself with no expectations on her shoulders.
    • Sakura also relates to Ash in the sense that both had survived horrifying sexual abuse at a young age and finally gave retribution to their abusers in their own way and Ash became angered when he heard Sakura is only used to bring about a living mass of destruction to the world which is a far cry from him being groomed to be Golzine's successor. Sakura, along with Rin find it amusing that Ash began to fall for Eiji the same way they fell for Shirou; through separate instances of them pole vaulting for different reasons (Shirou to keep up his spirit and Eiji to get out of the troubling situation and call for help) on top of both boys being gentle, caring and at times, reckless on their own. As such, the three girls praised Eiji for being there by Ash's side which he humbly took in stride and they're reminded of Shirou's own mild manners from that reaction.
    • Another couple that are able to relate to the boys are Shiki Ryougi and her husband Mikiya Kokutou, with Ryougi also being a someone who distrust other people and only knows killing for the majority of her life like Ash and the gentle Mikiya being the one to redeem her like what Eiji did. Ryougi finds it disheartening that Ash basically was pushed into killing because of the abuse he suffers and fending off the other gangsters from Golzine's turf unlike her who was born into a Yakuza clan; now that she's eventually that clan's head despite hating the grooming, she's glad that Ash overcame his dark destiny of becoming the Corsican Mafia's don and he likewise is looking forward to a smooth, professional relationship with her and her clan. Meanwhile, Mikiya and Eiji talked and expectedly got along well with Mikiya being saddened that Eiji couldn't compete in competitive pole-vaulting anymore but the latter wouldn't want to worry about it as he feels he wouldn't make it anyways and plus, Ash had lighten up his life in a way that no one else can.
      • Ryougi's junior in magical eyes that let you see people's death lines, Shiki Tohno also managed to get on the boys' good graces as he also had a very rough past minus the sexual abuse that led to a lot of identity dissonance, yet he's also able to be there for five girls and their own set of problems; basically, he's kind of like a combo of the boys with his own twist. Ash is a little weirded out that Tohno often sounded like Eiji at times but he later got used to it as he hangs out with him more.
    • At Saber and Rin's warnings, Ash and Eiji sees Gilgamesh, Shinji Matou, Gilles de Rais & Ryunnosuke Uryuu as enemies. Gilgamesh striked at them previously because they had witnessed him murdering someone for a slight and the boys couldn't help but be reminded of Frederick Arthur, a gangster who became subservient to Golzine just to have a chance at being superior to Ash and their arrogance and wickedness is comparable. They heard that Shinji was complicit in his abuse against Sakura and when Ash first tracked down Shinji, it was to shoot him point blank for that. Gilles and Ryuunosuke don't find the boys to fit their MO, but they do find Ash to be a hindrance should he begin to hunt them down. Out of all of them, Shinji expressed an interest in the Banana Fish since with it, he can drug anyone he wants so that they can do whatever he pleases though luckily, Ash and Eiji refuses to let that happen.
  • While on a night out, Ash and Eiji found a bar called "Seventh Heaven" which made Ash curious, thinking it might be the base of another gang so he and Eiji decided to investigate even though Eiji feels Ash should lighten up in his assumptions. When they got to the countertop, they noticed a blonde man and a brunette woman chatting with the woman being the bartender and Ash orders himself a cocktail as he asks them questions about them. When said questions get too touchy enough to start a fight, Eiji had to ease the tension and explained the real reason they're here, finally getting them to lower their weapons.
    • The woman then properly introduced herself as Tifa Lockhart and the man as Cloud Strife so as to smoothen the atmosphere; she answers the question that they're not part of a gang, but an eco-terrorist group called AVALANCHE though Cloud was a mercenary hired by them to help them. They had good reason for their agenda as the Shinra Electric Power Company was planning to drain their world's lifeblood as an energy source for profit which reminded Ash and Eiji of Golzine attempting to use the Banana Fish to control the most powerful political figures for power; sure, the latter doesn't really have a world threat but it's a big enough deal. On a personal level, Cloud and Tifa found the boys to be similar to them: broody blondes with gentle brunettes to comfort them. Aside from Cloud and Ash clashing at times which is probably caused by them being too similar, the former and Tifa are willing to defend them should any threat they faced proved too fantastically powerful.
    • As they heard from Cloud and Tifa, their enemy Professor Hojo is Shinra's mad head scientist who had used his own family in order to revive the evil goddess Jenova and is responsible for his son Sephiroth's upbringing. Ash is grimly reminded of Dr. Mannerheim, a scientist at NIMH who is interested in the Banana Fish's effects and refining it into a powerful drug capable of turning people incapable of functioning normally, without any care of the fate of the subjects and he already feels like he wants to kill Hojo before he even gets his hand on Banana Fish. The drug's existence did intrigue Hojo, as he finds it use in making his to-be subjects incapacitated and easy to follow orders, closer to his goal of awakening Jenova and if Ash ever intervenes, Hojo will make sure he'll suffer even more.
  • When the boys first met the heroes Spider-Man and Batman, they couldn't believe their eyes as they had always thought of them as fictional until that moment to which both replied that it is to be expected of a place capable of bringing in both heroes and villains regardless if they are fictional or not. As they hear more of the boys' experience, the two heroes are alarmed that such a dangerous drug have been made and many bad people seek to use it for their own gain and Spidey is bummed that it happened in New York (an alternate one, but still); as such, they agreed to look out for the drug and Batman will prepare contingency plans should anyone get their hands on even a vial.
  • As they have been involved in the crime world for a while now with Ash even more so, he and Eiji had some run-ins with the Pantheons' criminal lords and one particular thief. After overcoming the evil Cioccolatta, Ash and Eiji were saved by Giorno Giovanna and Bruno Bucciarati, gangsters from Italy who were superpowered like Cioccolatta only that they sworn to protect the weak instead; the boys are grateful for their help and in turn, Giorno, Bucciarati and their friends join in defending them against the fantastical enemies of the Pantheon. The said thief, Omar Little is also happy to help the boys after he hears out their story, and he decides to keep on helping so that no other innocent would go through what Ash did. And finally the aforementioned criminal lords like Mr. X and Wilson "Kingpin" Fisk also sees Ash as a possible hindrance to their respective schemes and even more so when they learn of the digging he and his allies had done against Golzine and his overseas scheme. Vito and Michael Corleone however, is willing to aid Ash and Eiji against preventing the Banana Fish's circulation, as Vito finds it disappointing that most mafias, including Golzine's would stoop so low to sell drugs for money; Ash and Eiji would've liked Michael better had he actually put in the effort in staying away from the business and Michael likewise was jealous that someone broken like Ash actually did so by connecting with someone who actually reached his heart unlike him who constantly pushed away his wife by keeping his crimes a secret.
    • To say that the Slavers being one of their most despised enemies is an Understatement. With crimes of human trafficking and prostitution along with being violent and heartless people overall, Eiji is horrified that such heartless criminals exist and Ash is already gaining a need to kill them slowly and painfully as he had gone through mind-breaking child prostitution by force. The Bulats and Vera are also looking out for Ash and his deadly skills in guns and leadership, even discarding the idea of enslaving him as he would be even more pissed if they did so. Meanwhile, the Son is a drug dealer who eventually got high from his supply and started to slaughter his own men and the Fans in a frenzy before falling to his death from his HQ's rooftop, thinking he's walking on a rainbow bridge. The drug he deals are extremely potent to the point of Mushroom Samba levels, making anyone high with it seeing others as demon and brutish monsters and the Son even saw the Fans as actual animals at one point. Hearing what his drugs are, their effects and similarities to the Banana Fish, Ash and Eiji are quick to declare him an enemy as his delirious rampage is sufficient evidence that his drug shouldn't be widespread to potential victims while the Son himself has some respect towards Ash for being a good leader to his own men.
    • The boys had several run-ins with the Lee Clan, a clan of Chinese triads responsible for bringing Shorter, Sing and the other Chinese into America illegally in exchange for their loyalty and their eventual leader, Lee Yut-Lung who is in many ways a Foil to them. This got them in contact with the Pantheons' currently ascended triad members, Wei Shen and Huang Lee; Wei got along with them better as he is fundamentally good-hearted while still being very harsh in his methods and despite being a cop, he eventually became loyal to the Sun On Yee after spending enough time with the gang. When Wei heard of the Banana Fish fiasco, he's angered that such a thing could happen and he decided to help them should the drug come to the Pantheons; Ash accepts his help, mostly because he likes Wei's attitude towards his enemies and Eiji trusts him as he seems like a well-meaning cop like Charlie and Jenkins. As for Huang Lee, he finds the Banana Fish to be very dangerous to sell in his drug dealing but he has no interest in joining Ash and Eiji in stopping its circulation as he just want to reduce his involvement in crime save for the aforementioned drug dealing and heisting, no matter how horrifying Ash had gone through. He does agree that Yut-Lung would really be a bad leader for the Lee Clan and was relieved Sing is around to make him reform.
    • Ash and Eiji did met two people who were wronged by the mafia and seek revenge against them. Darkman, formerly known as Peyton Westlake once got the boys out of trouble when he was out hunting some mafiosos and those guys were hunting Ash and Eiji for their involvement in the Banana Fish debacle; he finds them alright and might help him take down the dons, even if Ash has quite an attitude. And then there's Bloody Marie, a girl who was wronged by the Medicis to the point that the mere mention of any mafia is enough to send her into a violent rage; she met the boys and when she heard of what they both had gone through she, in a very rare case actually fell silent and said she sympathized with their situation. This further fuels her hatred of the mafia and vows to them that when Golzine ascends she'll go kill him herself and they can drag themselves in if they want as long as she does the job, making Ash smirk at the prospect of a rival competing against him in killing Golzine and Eiji intimidated at her general aura.
    • One bad chance encounter later, and Ash and Eiji have became enemies against Hoyt Volker and his goons, Vaas Montenegro and Buck Hughes. Volker is also a drug lord and a brutal one at that, and when he heard of the drug's existence he's gonna make sure he's getting all of the profits and the boys will break if they stop him. Vaas has heard of their trauma and is excited to see them break further once he gets to them while Buck sees more prey to kill and torture when he learns about them; as expected, the boys are disgusted that abhorrent people like them exist. Their enemy, Jason Brody got to the aftermath of said bad chance encounter and found the boys there, getting them to a safe place from the bad guys. Once they did, the two parties recount their respective horrible experiences against druglords and each were taken aback with their uniqueness of it all with Jason seeing how much Volker will covet the Banana Fish now; from then on, he decided to fight with them against the Banana Fish and it horrible effects against the human mind.
  • It's a no-brainer that Ash really hates rapists since throughout all his life, he has been sexually violated ever since he was eight by various men with Golzine frequently doing so in addition to making him his successor to the Corsican Mafia. Along with Eiji, he came to hate Embryo, Ethan Roark Jr. and Molag Bal for sexually taking advantage of the weak even if he knows Embryo and Molag Bal are miles above more powerful than him and his skills. Embryo doesn't see both boys as fitting of his tastes though he can see why Ash is so coveted by the men of his world while Molag Bal takes pleasure in hearing about the stuff they had went through, even thinking that he should maximize their suffering should he capture them and he especially looks forward to Eiji broken and catatonic, something Ash is ticked off at since he's very protective of Eiji.
    • Victims of sexual abuse who later lashed out in the worst ways possible also earn Ash's ire and Eiji's befuddlement. Griffith was tortured for months which caused him to cause the Eclipse incident and raped Casca in front of Guts just to get back at him for not paying attention to him, Kiara Sesshouin wanting to submit the entire world to a world-ending orgy due to growing up in a sex cult and thinking their teachings are absolute knowledge, and Wolfgang Schreiber wishing to kill everyone as a result of being sold to prostitution are all appalling and unthinkable to the boys with them feeling that Schreiber is like Yut-Lung but more unstable; in return Griffith scoffs at them, Kiara finds them to be adequate boy toys and Schreiber is disappointed that they couldn't relate to him.
    • Fujino Asagami is the exception to that, as due to Ryougi curing her appendicitis (it's a long story) she has largely stopped her killings after that and proved affable enough to befriend them. As she gained her powers back when she ascended, she offered retribution to Ash's violators but he declined as he had killed most of them by now so she'll have to settle with comforting him if possible; she even finds Eiji to be reminiscent of Mikiya due to his meek demeanour and concern for others. She had also told them that Kiara is under the command of the Master of Chaldea as she also have but that doesn't make her any less lethal in their eyes.
  • Ash may have hated getting violated by men, but at least he picked up some seduction skills along the way which does come in handy when they work. It got him and Eiji in contact with Issei Hyodo and Yuuto Kiba after the latter duo saved the former duo from an incoming onslaught of mindless devils, and once they got to a safe place they exchange stories. Ash and Eiji found it wild that Issei once died after Raynare killed him and disposed of him for being a bad boyfriend and Yuuto was an engineered soldier of the Holy Sword Project meant to create the strongest swordsmen, something he has a revenge complex against but Issei argues that it still doesn't beat Ash's suffering which he feels is more psychologically damaging. After Eiji reassures them all that who they were or what they have gone through doesn't have to always bring them down in this moment and a slight confusion with Yuuto regarding shared voices, he and Ash have made more powerful allies in Issei and Yuuto.
    • Panty Anarchy also is a master seductress like Ash and likes his handsomeness and cockiness, and Brief finds Eiji to be a good confidant. Even Panty finds his suffering to be heavy and considers not having sex with him just to give him peace of mind though he did make it clear he's okay with doing it with someone like her as long as it's consensual. As for Eiji and Brief, Brief had shared his woes with Eiji who assures him that Panty might not want to act on her attraction towards him as she's probably reeling from his hidden handsomeness beneath his Blinding Bangs and while he finds it reassuring, it still doesn't make Panty want to date him for real. Prostitutes like Marida Cruz (a former one) and Dorothy Haze also sympathized with Ash as they do admit that he never asked to be in the business and worst of all, an old man took advantage of him just for his own pleasure and was glad Eiji was there to bring him out of the psychological hellhole. Dorothy in particular aside from offering sex to Ash if he wants, also relates to Ash in liking children while Ash is more annoyed at the fact that she shares Too Much Information at times.
  • The boys are in a unique setting where guy-on-guy is perfectly normal, albeit unfortunately portrayed as not pretty. Still, this has gotten them in contact with Oren Pierre Alfonzo AKA Kamen Rider Bravo and Amane Nishiki who are interested in men; Oren gets along with them better seeing as he's the first gay man who was more friendly to the boys compared to the bad guys they faced, and he has welcomed them to his cafe Charmant at anytime as long as they weren't an Aquarius. On the other hand, Amane is looking for more pretty boys for his troupe and he sees Ash and Eiji as perfect for them to which the boys go "nope" on him and his advances; he does pity their past situations regarding the drug but it hasn't deterred him from continuing said advances.
  • Ash is surprisingly good with the kids, as demonstrated when he comforts Max's son Michael after he and his mother Jessica were assaulted by Golzine's men along with his friendship with Skipper. He and Eiji passed by the newly-constructed House of Childhood and Adolescence when they met a girl named Maisie, who had suffered through Parental Neglect until eventually getting adopted by another adult who was capable of giving her the love she needed. Hearing through her situation, Ash and Eiji were saddened that it happened but was relieved that she's safe physically and emotionally; still, it's not as bad as Ash's own, whose father pushed him away out of not knowing how to comfort him after his first sexual encounter with a stranger in town and whose mother had to leave him behind even though her naming of him proved her love for him, both that Maisie can tell Ash had it way rougher. Since then, they have become occasional playmates for her should any of her other guardians are not available to take care of her.
  • On a lighter note, Ash hates Halloween and pumpkins... for a mundane reason. When he was a kid, he was out trick-or-treating with the other kids in his hometown and as he was waiting for Griff to come home so that he can playfully scare him, he ended up looking at a reflection of his costume (a pumpkinhead) on a car's windshield and ran home scared, mistaking it for a monster; that story is too hilarious for Eiji to the point that he refuses to live Ash down for that. It's why Ash often get scared of Jack Skellington, who usually looks after the celebration in the Pantheons and while Eiji does see he does mean well even if he once hijacked Christmas out of not knowing how it works, it takes a lot of willpower and convincing for Ash to not be intimidated by his presence. Jack did warn them that monsters like Oogie Boogie, Mad King Thorn and Jack O' Lantern are a lot more worse than him and they always don't mean well on Halloween; they heed his warning as the aforementioned villains are fantastically super-powered and they mean business. Ash obviously hates Thorn and Jack O'Lantern more as evil pumpkinheads are enough to send him in a reckless frenzy and they in turn see him as an easy-to-scare victim with Thorn feeling that Ash would be fun to see participating in his game of "Mad King Says".
  • "I'll never lose to him, no matter what he does. And I will survive!"
    Ash
  • "If I'm gonna die anyway, at least I'll die trying!"
    Eiji

Let's begin the operation!

  • Enemies: Nurgle, those who advocate death, Facehuggers, Thrax, Typhus, Albert Wesker
  • Oppose: Nigel Burke (especially Derek)
  • Conflicting Opinion: The Medic (Derek can tolerate him, Angie despises him)
  • Usually, in most games, healing is not a big issue, and can be solved with potions, food, sleep, or exiting combat. Sometimes, it takes a bit of effort, or it's just plain impossible to get sick or injured (though death is still an option). In a Medical Game, the treatment of illnesses/injuries/infections is the main point. Enter the Trauma Center games.
  • Derek Stiles grew up in Northridge, a suburb just outside Angeles Bay. After losing his father to an incurable disease (and losing his cat in a car accident before or after that), this started his resolve to become a doctor. His story begins as a surgeon at Hope Hospital in Angeles Bay, just about to complete his residency there and eager to start operating as a full time surgeon. He used to have the assistance of Nurse Mary Fulton before she had to transfer to another hospital, newcomer nurse Angela Thompson taking her place as Derek's aide. While mostly professional, Angie also tends to be moody and prone to outbursts, but is still just as dedicated to her job as Derek is.
    • Their story begins in full force upon the discovery of a series of bioweapons known as GUILT, designed with the intent to cause pain and death to those infected by it. It comes right after the discovery of something in Derek: the Healing Touch, a supernatural ability meant to help surgeons with their operations. The results vary, but for Derek, it slows down time for a few minutes. Partly in thanks to this gift, Derek was eventually invited to the international organization Caduceus (with Angie shortly following suit), which is at the forefront in combating Delphi, the terrorist group responsible for GUILT. Several operations later, all the strains of GUILT have been stopped, and Delphi is tracked down and its members arrested, putting an end to their threat to the world.
    • Another thing to note is that Angie has close ties to GUILT, so to speak, in that her father Dr. Kenneth Blackwell was blackmailed to create GUILT, and did so to keep Angie from becoming a living incubator of GUILT. While he has been rescued, she has not forgiven him for his actions, though he continues to atone after that.
    • That said, GUILT would surface once again three years later, though Derek and Angie would first deal with Post-GUILT Syndrome patients after coming back from Costigar, Africa with new "recruit" Dr. Adel Tulba. And then GUILT itself would resurface, thanks to Delphi remnants, and worse Derek would lose access to the Healing Touch for a while after failing to save a patient (out of four in succession), the pressure getting to him, just as his mentor Dr. Robert Hoffman feared years ago, having suffered that burden himself. He would take a break at Hope Hospital for about a month before Angie visits him and they visit her father who's under probation and helping clean up the mess Delphi made, but when he contracts PGS, Derek finally gets his Healing Touch back after getting his act together, and Derek and Angie eventually return to Caduceus, continuing the fight against GUILT, eventually putting a stop to Delphi for good, exposing that Acropolis and HOA has been utilizing GUILT (now called NEO-GUILT) in certain medicines of theirs as "ability enhancements" (to the point of mimicking the Healing Touch) thanks to Blackwell's espionage, arresting the implicit top brass, and eliminating NEO-GUILT for good as well.
  • Their ascension to the Pantheon came in the form of a Court envoy sent to Caduceus and requesting for the pair, who were just returning days after overseeing Dr. Markus Vaughn and Dr. Valerie Blaylock test out simulation operations against Stigma strains plus GUILT strains. After a lengthy talk with the envoy, Director Hoffman decided that it would be best that Derek and Angie accompany the envoy Dr. Black Jack to their new assigned location: the Trope Pantheons. And there they were granted two temples; one in the expected House, and the other in the House of Gaming.
  • Applies to both:
    • Naturally, Derek and Angie were first acquainted with the doctors in the House of Health and Diseases, starting with Black Jack himself, given Caduceus has a few shrines dedicated to him. They're amazed at his speed, and that it's all from his body, no mystical Healing Touch necessary.
      • While a nurse, they revere Florence Nightingale for revolutionizing the profession and making sanitation mandatory.
      • Their first big step towards accepting the strange was the salarian doctor Mordin Solus, who was additionally a proficient fighter to boot, given the criminal environment Shepard first found him operating at.
      • SCP-2295 was a massive curiosity, being able to replace organs and patch up skin with plushie materials and they somehow work like the real thing.
      • While the Medic's tech and speed of healing is revolutionary, his practices, mercenary career, and (lack of) ethics prove problematic for them to deal with. Still, after one operation where Derek and Angie had to treat the Heavy after being infected by an anomalous parasite using the Medic's tools (and Angie being critical of their filth before cleaning them), and the fact that he considers his colleagues as friends, Derek can tolerate him at best, while Angie loathes him for his loss of his medical license on top of everything else he's done.
      • Fran Madaraki is another they found unsettling due to her skewed anti-death morality, despite her unparalleled surgery skills, and because of the mutations she's made thanks to those skills. But her rules are relatively easy to follow to keep her sort-of under control. That said, when it comes to heart operations, she sometimes offers to "modify" Derek, though he always turns her down.
      • And then there's Nigel Burke, a ... disgrace to the profession, so much that even Derek is close to being driven to a rage at the sight. The fact that several of Nigel's patients have also been delivered to Derek's operating table puts him really close to actually ranting about that guy's ineptitude.
    • Outside of the House of Health and Diseases, they were acquainted with Dr. Tenma, his skills as a neurosurgeon, his unending optimism, and his mission to stop Johan Liebert.
      • They were also acquainted with Navy Corpsmen Pacific Assault Squad member James Broderick Sullivan and Flag Raiser John Henry "Doc" Bradley, who have both treated battlefield casualties in the jungles and islands of the Pacific Theater. Derek and Angie are no strangers to medical operations in a warzone, given their time at Costigar.
      • And then there's SCP-049, who has a desire to "end the plague", but is oblivious to the fact that his actions aren't conducive, including his Touch of Death. 049 treats them with respect (and intrigue with Derek's Healing Touch), but this is not reciprocated by the surgeon or nurse.
    • They were once approached by the Lagaard guild and thanked for providing much needed medical supplies, but neither Derek nor Angie remember them or ever being in High Lagaard. Still, the aid is appreciated, and Derek has even considered teaching his art to their (and the other guilds') Medics.
    • As doctors, they oppose those who would promote death, especially death cults such as Delphi was, and those who specifically design diseases to bring that about, having stopped every strain of GUILT they encountered.
    • A surgeon is supposed to have as much of their attention as possible on a patient that needs saving. While turbulence, reckless driving, and darkness may be tolerated since those can't be helped, live media coverage with lighting and flashes will not be tolerated by Angie, even if Derek will try to persevere amidst it anyway. Reality TV with real operations isn't tolerated either, and two other Caduceus doctors eventually put a stop to one such show.
    • Medical malpractice of any kind is not something they'd want to repeat, having once been directed by the government to implant a pacemaker with a tracker in a Delphi mole, who would then be "set free" for him to return to his base.
    • They oppose those who would do unspeakable things for the sake of beauty/youth, just as President Reina Mayuzumi of Acropolis has.
    • The operations they've had to perform in the Pantheon has led to enemies and allies as well.
      • There was one operation on a patient who was infected with Thrax, and he proved more challenging to deal with than even the GUILT strains Savato and Aletheia since he's actually sapient. A timely arrival by Osmosis Jones helped turn the tide, though Thrax managed to escape entirely, leaving a huge mess for Derek to fix.
      • There was also another on a recently "impregnated" Facehugger victim when they were in the area. Usually, they're just written off as doomed, but Derek wanted to save the victim and the patient was taken to the operating room (and Ripley was already contacted). Not being given enough time to grow inside the victim, the to-be-Chest Burster was much weaker than it should've been, though still proved challenging for Derek to handle, especially since unlike GUILTnote , this infant Xenomorph even made to attack Derek himself, though his Healing Touch instincts kept him from getting hurt as it found itself decapitated by his scalpelnote  (the xenomorph infant was that weak). Angie swiftly gathered the "pieces" for future study.
      • He suffered a minor breakdown after the operation, given this was the first time he's killed a living thing that wasn't a virus/parasite/bioweapon (thinking back on Dr. Tulba's attempt to use the Healing Touch to kill Derek, only for the NEO-GUILT to kick in), but Ripley (who arrived near the end of the operation) assured him that he did the right thing. Also, "prequel" events have revealed that the Xenomorphs were indeed bioweapons that eventually Turned Against Their Masters and were on the loose ever since.

  • Exclusive to Derek:
    • The secret to Derek's success is the Healing Touch, which slows time to a crawl from his perspective as he operates on the patient in record time, though he's been recommended to make do without it as often as possible to conserve his mental stamina and only use it for critical diseases that are as dangerous as GUILT has been.
      • A Healing Touch used subconsciously out of desperation costs the doctor nothing and can last quite a while, while an intentional one exhausts the user and last for a brief time proportional to their focus. Two different Healing Touches can be used in concert without interfering with each other. Meanwhile, two of the same Healing Touch will stack. This includes those from the same doctor (a.k.a. Derek) using a desperation healing touch and an intentional one simultaneously.
    • If worse comes to worst, as long as there's an expert to instruct him, and he has his tools, he can even defuse a bomb, and disarm certain electronic locks.
    • Despite his expertise, he's just one surgeon, and can only operate on one patient at a time. Thankfully, in the Pantheon, there are several advanced healing methods to close up wounds fast when he has to operate in succession. It's one of the only reasons he tolerates the Medic.
    • Is slow at working out puzzles, and gets regularly mocked for it.
    • Despite the last time he had cameras and sensors wired up to him, Derek's willing to have his operations recorded if it can help other surgeons. He'd just prefer that they aren't artificially enhanced like Acropolis Pharmaceutical and the Hands of Asclepius have done with their doctors and Adel Tulba, and using NEO-GUILT as "ability enhancers". Time-related abilities should work just fine, though.

  • Exclusive to Angie:
    • Because she never got it back at Caduceus or Hope Hospital, several are unafraid to give her flak over the things she's done (including suggesting to a depressed patient that they should just die, even if that isn't actually unique to Angie), though they also state that she's tolerated because of Derek and because she pretty much keeps him in line in regards to non-surgeon matters, particularly to remind him to do his paperwork. Interestingly, in certain other matters, he's the more mature one compared to her.
    • Despite not looking the type who would have the discipline to study it, Angie is proficient in aikido.
    • Dislikes parents who do all sorts of atrocities just to spare their children, even if it's because of ransom, as her father had done. It took years before she could look at him again without too much hate.
    • Despises Nurse Ratched for how badly she treats her patients. Yes, Angie has had her moments too, but those were out of impulse and wild emotion, not calculated cruelty.
    • "Nice work, Dr. Stiles!"

    The Houyhnhnms 
But when a creature pretending to reason could be capable of such enormities, [the Master Horse, Gulliver's Houyhnhnm escort] dreaded lest the corruption of that faculty might be worse than savagery itself. He seemed therefore confident, that, instead of reason [humans] were only possessed of some quality fitted to increase [their] natural vices.

The Houyhnhnms, Deified Race of Castration Practitioners

  • Ignore: Every deity in the houses of Costumes, Extraterrestrials, Religion and Faith, Love, Luck and Fortune, Magic, Theatre and Spectacle, and Undead
  • Appalled with: Ludwig, The Accursed, BoJack Horseman
  • A race of abnormally intelligent equines largely against the concept of weapons and brutal murder who inhabit an island located a good distance south of Australia, the Houyhnhnms (Pronounced Hwih-nims) nevertheless believe that humans can be systemically killed by removing their sexual organs. Because castration is both a gradual and weaponless method of elimination, its approval would allow them to attain the societal purity they desired without having to abandon the strict moral code they stuck (And to this day, still stick) so tightly to.
  • Strangely enough, they knew nothing about castration until former English surgeon Lemuel Gulliver (At that point a captain) was mutinied and found himself on their island. Even though he was surprised to encounter a society where human-horse dynamics worked backward, the Houyhnhnms themselves were bewildered to see a Yahoo who was clothed, clean-shaven, and most shockingly, teachable. He proceeded to tell them dreadful things about the outside world. Although they eventually sent Gulliver away on a suspicion that he would cause the other Yahoos to become smarter and kill their cattle, his stay there affected him psychologically by the time he returned to Britain; he had become so dismissive of his fellow humans that he would spend several hours a day talking to his newly-purchased horses and not bother to leave their stable.
    • The castration system eventually proved so victorious that within the next 85 years, every last Yahoo on the island had either died of old age or succumbed to diseases or other natural conditions (They are in fact the only forms of life on the island who can suffer from any ailments, period) and never had any successors to continue their longevity. As a result, Houyhnhnm society has had far less of a burden on its back due to the absence of the Yahoos for the past two and a half centuries.
  • He made me observe, "that among the Houyhnhnms, the white, the sorrel, and the iron-gray, were not so exactly shaped as the bay, the dapple-gray, and the black; nor born with equal talents of mind, or a capacity to improve them"... wrote Lemuel in his journal, describing that the natives formed couples where both members were of the same color and thus discouraged any genetic intermixing. A Houyhnhnm individual's fur color also determines the class they belong to, and the society as a whole feels that blending phenotypes would lead to their social structure becoming needlessly complex.
  • Due to living in such a remote part of the world, the Houyhnhnms were neither aware that humans use other horses as steeds nor do they allege themselves to such human principles as wealth, ambition, vengeance, or war. While a small population of Yahoos does exist on the island, they do not possess the same level of intelligence as human outsiders, being unclad and prone to lobbing fecal matter at one another. It is traits like these that make the Houyhnhnms view Yahoos so condescendingly and enslave them (Since the Houyhnhnms do not believe in murdering or butchering).
  • Ever since Gulliver's voyage, the Houyhnhnms have become generally even more dismissive of humans or humanoids than they have in the past, believing that their presence on their island would cause a disruption to their way of life. They despise humans so much that they use the word "Yahoo" to describe anything that's bad or of inferior quality (As opposed to "houyhnhnm," which is both the word they use to describe themselves and to view something as good or of higher quality).
    • They can't stand the sight of Ludwig, The Accursed, appearing to them as a mix of the long-furred Yahoos that once roamed their nation and their own likeness via a horselike head and legs. Despite Ludwig not voluntarily attaining such a form (Having morphed into it unawares as a result of his repeated hunts with the Healing Church of Yharnam and experimenting with samples of Old Blood), the Houyhnhnms aren't convinced, believing that he had to have made himself look that way as a means of poking fun at their race.
    • For another set of rationale, they cannot tolerate hearing the name "BoJack Horseman." Readers, back when he was the star of Horsin' Around, he had visited Houyhnhnm Land. He heard that the inhabitants were still-quadrupedal ponies, and thus suggested to series creator Herb Kazzaz that he include a sketch where Horseman's character Horse tells Olivia, Ethan, and Sabrina that any horse who still walks on 4 legs ought to live in a mental ward. Suffice it to say, being an anthropomorphic equine and making himself look superior to them during production, that scene never came to be due to them wanting to make him a gelding if he went ahead with referencing them in the show. Even though he's since moved past his days of alcohol and depression, his ascension has greatly annoyed them.
  • When they learned that Bambi's mother met her fate at the hands of Man, they immediately considered letting the buck form good relations with them. What they did not know was that upon his ascension, Bambi opened up to humanity when he realized there were individuals who were more benevolent than the hunters who ravaged his habitat. Because he was told the Houyhnhnms wouldn't leave their island, he made sure never to come near them, apprehensive that they would capture him and convince the buck that Man was and always would be inherently evil.
  • If anything, the Weather Gods have promised to ensure their country is left untouched by the equine-loathing (But also human-hating in his own right) Napoleon. To worsen matters, he slowly started to act more like a human during the rebellion against the owner of the farm he lived in, the thought of it! For obvious reasons, the Houyhnhnms view as him as the nastiest non-Yahoo in all existence. It should also be mentioned that both wish to convert the aforementioned Bambi into a Yahoo-hater, but both have radically different approaches to that school of thought.
  • One would be surprised to learn that they are biased against the mane six. They certainly refuse to befriend Twilight Sparkle due to her love of books (A medium that includes written language, something the Houyhnhnms do not practice). Rarity, in their eyes, is far too materialistic as a result of her fashionista inclinations. Pinkie Pie represents excessive celebration, and Rainbow Dash is capable of generating sonic rainbooms, phenomena that are both extremely loud and therefore repulsive to the Houyhnhnms. Even Applejack (The most mundane of the group) is viewed unfavorably by them just on the basis of her being a representative in the House of Weapons.
    • This also applies somewhat to Fluttershy (The Mane 6 Member they least despise due to her tendency to not interfere in the way others run their lives out of respect) not only due to her being a Pegasus, but because she strongly disagrees with their bigotry unto humans. Not to mention, the fact they have seen her accompanied by Discord, the embodiment of Chaos, is more than reason enough to dissociate themselves from her. While Fluttershy herself does acknowledge their ability to respect their natural surroundings and not suffer from societal overexpansion, she nevertheless has distanced herself from their island since their worldview is not all gumdrops and daffodils.
    • Although not from Equestria, Crystal is also viewed with contempt in Houyhnhnm Land (Despite being reminiscent of a normal horse in almost every imaginable way), most likely because of her mane and body color suddenly changing every so often coming off as demeaning and ostentatious.
  • So you'd think they'd be at least a little less livid toward a horse-lover like Hazel Levesque? A big uh-uh to that one. In their minds, she'd be the kind of person to have been sent out by the other Yahoos so they could be emotionally weakened and left vulnerable to the aggressor. They don't even care if every other horse in the world opens up to her (Being the only animals who are generally welcoming to her due to her being the daughter of Hades and Persephone) because they understand she would want them to become obedient to her; it should be blatant by this point that they wouldn't accept any of that gobbledygook.
  • One of the most important aspects of Houyhnhnm life is to avoid starting competitions or challenges. Although the foals are encouraged to at least explore the island and befriend their neighbors, they are sternly taught never to play games with their friends. In any case, an adult must always be nearby when children frolic around so as to not become disobedient behind their backs. In their opinion, the concept of winning, losing, and tying will lead to disputes between players and therefore cause unnecessary conflict. It is for this fundamental reason that they do not care in the slightest for the Houses of Gaming and Sports, two topics built entirely around winning and losing.
  • It's worth noting that even though they have no law system (Since they're so based on reason and reality that they don't need any laws), they still view the House of Crime with much contempt. This belief likely stems from the fact that they view criminals as Yahoos at their bare-bones form: innately chaotic, driven by impulses and predilections, and only caring about themselves as opposed to their society as a whole.
  • Osiris does not like the Houyhnhnms one bit, the reason being their genital-removal procedures. After all, he was castrated years ago, and hearing of a race ascend that specializes in such a discipline has understandably ticked him off. As much as he would like to see them demoted or erased from existence, the Overdeities have pulled him back to ensure he can't disrupt the Houyhnhnms' orderly ways.
  • When it comes to Yahoos, the only ones they will even remotely acknowledge are the ones inhabiting the house of Weather, primarily because they are the ones responsible for ensuring nature can give the Houyhnhnms sustenance and vegetation. Even the other Nature houses do not receive the same honors because they do not provide the same benefits as Weather (The only reason they reject the house of Water & Moisture is because none of the representatives there control precipitation or the benefits of water on their livelihoods).
  • Due to their "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" views on the way their society runs, they are strongly against being around artificial items (Not counting anything the Houyhnhnms themselves construct), especially robots and other forms of artificial intelligence. This hatred stems from their belief that anything made by civilizations more advanced than theirs means their creators strive for more. In turn, that leads them to realize that humans are never truly satisfied with their way of life, and will continue to expand their societies even if it means genocide for other fauna standing in their way.
    • At the same time, they also look down on hunter-gatherer societies, citing their bloodlust and carnivorous leanings as unclean and the root of all Yahoo imperfections. While it is worth noting that the Houyhnhnms are almost entirely herbivorous and therefore reliant on the farming of milk and feeding of vegetation, it's not known whether they are aware that Yahoos have fewer limits as to what they're able to ingest.
  • While they are not against befriending Pokemon (Given that whatever species they encounter doesn't react aggressively toward them), they are certainly against the concept of Pokemon training. This is not exactly a surprise, given the violent nature of these competitions and their psychological effects on these entities. Consequently, they have advocated for the release of Pokemon from their owners, allowing them to think and provide for themselves once released into the wild. Speaking of which, legends say that a Yorkshire Terrier-esque specimen (Lillipup) was named by the previously-mentioned Gulliver, inspired by a diminutive country he visited a number of years before coming to Houyhnhnm Land.
  • To understand how far apart they keep themselves from conflict-inducing concepts, their vocabulary does not cover things undesirable to them. For example, since they don't have a specialized term for "lie" or "fabrication", they would describe it as "that which one says is really not". Or more prominently, they would call the concept of murder (And other brutality-related terms like "war" and "assassination") as, "that which we do not mention" and leave it there.
    • Strangely, they also do not have a word for "castration". This is likely because the idea was introduced to them by Gulliver, a Yahoo, and therefore do not want to give a proper term to an idea they themselves did not propose. They have resorted to using, "the method with which the Yahoos are controlled," as the safest option.
  • Ever since the Industrial Revolution, Houyhnhnm Land has been facing increasingly greater environmental dangers, prompting the Weather Gods to create an invisible shield around the country to ward off the adverse effects caused by the expulsion of fossil fuels. Although the Houyhnhnms have very little knowledge of the cosmos (Only observing the stars as part of a calendar system), they agree that if humans were to move away to another planet, the carbon footprint would decrease and the general presence of energy gases in the air would also lower over time.
  • No one in this society is allowed to form and address their own opinion on ANYTHING. After all, why bother making a statement if someone else disagrees with and therefore, no one truly knows about. For similar reasons, they do not have a religion, citing it as a way of relying on hypothetical factors without relying on empirical or physical evidence. After learning about the ways of humans living in England and their incorporation of beliefs and stances from Gulliver, the locals cannot even begin to comprehend why they would actively want disagreement in their lives.
  • Their education network (Which goes out of its way to emphasize behavioral control in order to create a conflict-free environment) tailors to every individual growing up, regardless of their gender or sex; if one gender were marginalized and excluded from being taught, they claim, then their utopia would neither be at its most productive nor promoting the standards of non-conflict that they abide by. Due to these collectivist standards, gender is largely a non-entity other than for reproductive purposes.
  • Even if they saw magic happen in front of them, the Houyhnhnms would back away from it under the belief that it would be used to make them appear inferior. When it comes to the aforementioned Twilight Sparkle and Rarity, for instance, they would resort to asking them to get away from their territory and forget they ever saw any incantations. Since they take their status of superiority in earnest, they would freak out if, say, unicorns moved in and made them look boring in comparison.
  • Undead, you say? Eh, just a living being that tries its hardest to look dead, they think whenever they see zombies or the like in their vicinity. Given their immunity to hexes and Demonic Possession, it comes as no surprise for them to view such threats as mundane and in turn force any paranormal entities to seek victims elsewhere.
    • Similarly for aliens, they simply view them as Earth-inhabitants who learned from the Yahoos (BLECH, they've been tainted!) how to build aircraft and float around in the sky, trying to look like they're hovering down to the ground for the first time. And if asked about E.T, they'll state that the so-called "levitation" he causes whenever his finger lights up is merely the wind lifting up material by sheer coincidence and that E.T himself is probably some advanced genetic experiment set up as part of an elaborate conspiracy.
  • Upon having learned of their existence, Chief fireman Captain Beatty praised the Houyhnhnms for their ability to restrict their feelings and impulses in favor of using logic and reasoning to drive their utopia. Although they view Beatty as one of the more decent Yahoos out there, they are wary of him regardless not just because of him being human, but due to his championing of the use of book-burning as a means of stripping people of information that might make them sad or angry (Fire is considered a bad omen in Houyhnhnm culture due to it representing the destruction of their infrastructure, and in a chaotic way).
  • According to them, there's a massive difference between their brand of castration and the type of genital-removal used by humans and other non-Houyhnhnms. Take the Cabal Emperor Calus: he once subjected a political opponent of his (The Consul, who served as an advisor to Red Legion superior Dominus Ghaul) to castration in order to take back his Emperor position. If that didn't sound, *cough*, unnecessary enough, the fact that Calus (Himself not human, but believed by the Houyhnhnms to have been influenced by humans) is morbidly hedonistic, extravagant, and self-centered are some of the aspects that the inhabitants of Houyhnhnm Land condemn Yahoos for. Oh, and the Emperor himself views their society as measly and a mere blip in the universe once it comes to an end, though he at least doesn't drag himself into their affairs because they do not pose an obstacle to his aspirations.
  • They are aware that a certain "Zamasu" figure shares the same kind of spite toward Yahoos as they. However, they refuse to ally himself with them because of their differing methods of genocide: whereas the Houyhnhnms simply intend on removing the Yahoos' sexual organs and watch them age, Zamasu wants to eradicate them in a far more barbarous and immediate fashion. As a consequence, the Weather Gods have ensured that Zamasu is never allowed to set foot near the Houyhnhnms' country for the remainder of eternity.
    • They refuse to get along with Viridi and the other Hades (Though moreso the latter, due to the former mellowing out on her stance against humans since her ascension) for similar reasons to Zamasu. Although Viridi, being a Nature Goddess, respects the Houyhnhnms for their misanthropic ideology and their society not being overly damaging to the surrounding ecosystem, the Weather Gods have prohibited her from coming near them just like Hades (Who, meanwhile, is critical of them because he thinks castration is too soft of a method to kill the humans with).

  • Enemies: Gnasty Gnorc, Ripto, Malefor, Neo Cortex, Polygon Man, Acnologia, Bowser, Denzel Crocker, Smaug, Dovakhiin, Uka Uka
  • Distrusts: Moneybags
  • In many a video game, there is a Life Meter; a way of discerning the health of the player character. It can be a Hit Point bar, hearts, but it's very common. Sparx, however, is one of few who's both a Life Meter and a character. The blood brother to Spyro the Dragon, after Spyro rescued him they've been the best of friends. Together they've faced evil sorcerors, evil dragons and have been heroes to their universe time and time again.
  • Treasures the close friendship he has with Spyro the Dragon deeply, and is always looking out for him. He respects the likes of Gardevoir and Gallade for being guardian entities.
  • His color denotes the overall health of Spyro. Each hit drops from yellow to blue, blue to green and then leaving Spyro until he gets his health back. By attacking some of the animals like sheep it brings forth butterflies, which by eating restores a bit of health. Blue butterflies, in particular, are delicious for Sparx, adding a new life for Spyro. Mothra was a bit uncomfortable with him around, though the dragonfly's responsible enough to not hurt her.
  • Suspects that Spike is related to Spyro, due to how similar they are in appearance. He thought Sonic may be on good terms with Spyro as the latter took a lot from the former, however there doesn't seem to much of a relation between the two. The similarity in personality does lead the two to get along, and he also gets along with Tails the Fox due to being the brotherly sidekicks of a Mascot with Attitude.
  • Asides from determining Spyro's help, he also can collect nearby gems and jewels. Later games would allow him to retrieve them directly from boxes without Spyro needing the bust them open. This power has caused some trouble in the Trope Pantheon due to, on his way to seeing his friend in the Dragons sub-house, he ended up stumbling into Smaug's layer and taking some of his valuables. He did NOT take this lightly.
  • Was glad to see that an old ally of him and Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, had ascended. He was much less pleased to learn that in the time between Spyro and his own ascension, the Polygon Man had redeemed himself from The Fallen and wasn't happy with the two. Or that Neo Cortex had ascended after his arch-nemesis did.
  • Doesn't have too much to do with his own houses, though does seem to be friendly with Ana Amari and Tony Tony Chopper due to their healing position.
  • Shares close ties to the Dragons sub-house. Asides from his friendship with Spyro, he lives in a world of dragons so he's on good terms whenever he visits there. Plus he is a dragonfly after all. Naturally, he is utterly opposed to Acnologia's screaming hatred of dragons and overall depravity. Doesn't like the fact that a dragon-slayer, Dovakhiin, shares the same house his closest of friends does.
  • Became more capable over time, eventually being playable on his own right. He gets along with Globox due to them becoming tougher over time, and their roles as sidekicks.
  • Being a dragonfly, he isn't fond of anyone trying to capture him in nets or jars. Bowser has become an enemy for trying to bottle him up like he did with the Sprixies, believing there's potential power in him. Denzel Crocker meanwhile believes that catching him might be useful for his bigger schemes of capturing FAIRIES!!
  • Able to travel underwater in a bubble. This ended...poorly when visiting the houses of Commerce and Friendship, as it gave Spongebob and Patrick really bad memories about Wormy and caused them to panic.
  • When Spyro joined his friend Crash Bandicoot in the go-kart racing tournament that bears the name of the latter, Sparx didn't want to be left behind and so decided to act as the protective shield of Spyro, Hunter and, weirdly enough, Gnasty Gnorc; as well as every other racer in the Spyro Track since he felt it was his duty to act as the protective mask of everyone else, even if he isn't really a mask.

  • Additional Character Relationships: Rarity, Daisuke Motomiya
  • Stays away from: House of Electricity
  • The resident scientist of the Black Organization, Shiho Miyano created a drug known as the APTX 4869. It is unknown what are the reasons why the drug is created, but it is meant to be a lethal poison without giving any traces to the person's body, something that Shiho disapproves as she feels that the drug is meant to serve an another purpose. After the death of her sister, Shiho wanted to escape the organization, but was cuffed inside it's hideouts. Wanting to commit suicide, she swallowed the drug she created, causing her to shrunk down to her childhood self, and escaped quickly. Heading down to the Kudo mansion, she was found by Hiroshi Agasa while unconscious and decided to take care of her even after he found out the truth. Now under the name Ai Haibara and wanting to stay that way, she promised herself create a permanent cure for the drug she created to find a way for Conan Edogawa to go back to his true self, but not before the Black Organization is taken down.
  • Hearing about her ascencion, Conan hopes that this means that Haibara will get him to use the temporary antidotes in the Pantheon and that she'll create more quickly and probably a permanent one soon by working with other people that could help her with her development on it. Hearing about this, Haibara stated that she would prefer to work alone, use her own methods of developing the antidote, and would do anything to keep Conan of stealing the antidotes as she doesn't want to risk the chances of him worsening the effects every single time he uses one, even if he used it for "important emergencies", causing him to groan in disappoinment and give up. Likewise, Ran wanted to go near her to ensure her safety at all cost, not wanting to see her get hurt like last time. While Haibara appreciates the gesture, she would rather be by herself and in her temple alone.
  • She gets along with the Baudelaire Orphans due to losing their parents at a young age and being connected to shadowy organizations their parents are members of (with Haibara also being a member). They feel bad for what happen to her being in that organization, causing her to be isolated before eventually gaining her own friends in her shrunken form, with Haibara also feeling the same sentiment and that them being constantly chased by Count Olaf reminds her of some of her experiences with the other BO members while in hiding, causing her to be enemies with Count Olaf. Out of all the siblings, she has the closest relationship with Klaus as they are both intelligent people with high vocabulary and knowledge in a lot of subjects.
  • While she's happy being a child and would rather stay that way, she wouldn't cherish Alessi's power to de-aging people to toddlers....or fetuses depending on how long they were effected. It also doesn't help that he is a crazy psycho who is okay with hitting children, causing her to stay away from him much more.
  • Hearing about what happened to her, Toriel wanted to give her comfort stating that evrrythibg is going to be okay. Just like with Ran, Toriel easily reminded her of her dead sister, which unsettles her at first, but this causes her to easily warm-up to her and forged a friendship with her. Likewise, Frisk wanted to befriend her, hopes that she'll live a happy, and tries to gey her to warm-up to others to gain more friends. While Haibara appreciates Frisk's request, she stated that she is contented with the friends she has.
  • The House of Science are interested to hear how Haibara developed a drug that could be a lethal poison and also served as a way for people to de-aged. The evil deities there think it's a waste that she doesn't want to be an evil person anymore because hearing of her capabilities, they believe she could achieve more than what she had developed, which Haibara doesn't want to be involved with. The good deities there are glad that she's now in the side of them with some of them lending a helping hand on helping her on developing the permanent antidote and wished that she could work with them in the future for future projects that could be for the greater good, which Haibara refused as she thinks that she works best using her own methods, something that they understood.
  • Ended up meeting Cream after she and Conan were solving a case together. Cream's naivety, curiousness, and kindness easily reminds her of that of her best friend, Ayumi Yoshida, which is why she is much more relaxed with her during their first meeting. Cream feels bad upon hearing that she is an orphan and has no biological family left, but is relieved upon hearing that Haibara is happier living her life as a child. Because of the personality resemblance, she allows Cream to call her by her first name, although she wishes that the latter would drop the "Mrs." act whenever they encounter each other.
  • Hearing about what happened to Haibara, Atalanta swore to her that she will protect her from any BO member if they ever ascended and wanted to give her a happy life like any children would now that Haibara desires to live as a child and wanting to live a normal, happy life. Haibara also feels bad for what happened to her life, feeling that her life is worse than her own, and respects her goal of wanting to protect any children, even if she thinks that her goal is just too much to the point she wouldn't listen to what people say to her.
  • While Haibara is a big fan of fashion, most of the time, she mostly focuses on accessories. She tends to visit the House of Accesories to see what kind of accessories they have. While Rarity respects this, she wishes that Haibara would focus on other fashion trends, stating that she could be a good model if she does focus on the fashion industry as a whole, which Haibara halted on as she would rather focus on what she wanted.
  • While she doesn't really play soccer, she is a big fan of the sport itself and although she accompanies the Detective Boys of the matches of Tokyo Spirits, she is rather a huge admirer of Big Osaka and obsessed over it's star, Hyusuke Rigo. While they don't mind about it, some of the deities are confused why someone who lives in Tokyo would support an opposing team in Osaka, but of course Haibara never listens and tells them to stop minding her business.
  • Haibara is a huge animal lover and doesn't like it if animals are being hurt. As such, she gets along with Fluttershy and occassionally visits her temple to take care of her animals. She is impressed with her ability to become friends with all living things in general and jokes that she could turn the BO into pacifistic people, even if saying it uneases her. Although she is a little bit put off by her apologetic demeanor, it doesn't strain their relationship.
  • Even though she knows the strategy of not being shocked by electricity thanks to Conan, she still stays away from the Electricity subhouse as she strongly dislikes being shocked. Considering the deities of the Pantheon's capabilities, it's much more reasonable why she stays away from them more often.
  • Has managed to acquire the services of Sento Kiryu/Kamen Rider Build in helping with finding a cure to APTX 4869. Many deities were surprised and interested in seeing how far progress has been going ever since the two teamed up.

    Osmosis Jones 
Osmosis Jones, Divine Seeker White Blood Cell (Ozzy)

  • Theme Music: Ozzy and Drix Theme; this during his more "chill" moments
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good with shades of True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Seeker White Blood Cells, Cowboy Cop, Never Giving Up, Always doing the Correct Thing in spite of Rules, Always Being Known as "Ozzy", Showy Shapeshifters
  • Domains: Health, Good, Police
  • Herald: Drixobenzo "Drix" Methapherdramine
  • Allies: The entire GUAG Medical Division, Raymond "Ray" Palmer/The Atom, Princess Luna, NiGHTS
  • Enemies: [[Pantheon/Health and Diseases Th]]rax, NURGLE and all of his followers, Albert Wesker, Miyo Takano, Hexxus, most members from the GUAE Mutation Lair
  • Opposes: Jedah Dohma
  • He ascended to due being one of the few Seeker White Blood Cells with a mind of his own. He doesn't know if he should be happy or not about this since the Court Of Gods gave him the other white blood cells to lead, because while he does enjoy that he no longer has to suffer Pointy Haired Bosses, this is a legion we are talking about...
  • Often confused by the house of Racial Appearances for sounding Black, and being a Angry\Badass\Quippy Black Man...who just happens to be a white blood cell.
  • One of the (naturally) smallest additions to the Pantheon so far and will stay that way unless a actual molecule or atom ascends.
  • He was put to work with the GUAG Medical Division, something he likes, what with them being the few deities that can interact with him due to their use of very potent microscopes. He often aids them if everything else fails and if House still hasn't found the source of a disease yet (A very rare ocurrence but NOT an impossible one).
    • He also has found a friend in Raymond Palmer (Best known as The Atom) due to being able to shrink down to his size. Ozzy has asked if they could work together since his pal Drix is still not ascended, and Ray has accepted to help from time to time.
  • Almost went mad when he learned about Nurgle's existence. He would rather avoid him like the plague if he could, though he won't back down if a specific disease coming from him breaks out in the Pantheon.
    • Similarly, Jedah Dohma is the stuff of nightmares for him, though the demon himself is unaware of this unlike Nurgle.
    • And then there's his old enemy Thrax, which he is not happy to see present in the Pantheon.
  • Ozzy also works against cases of Hinamizawa Syndrome if there's someone with that. When asked out of curiosity by the Medical Division what the responsible pathogen of the syndrome looks like, he simply responded "It looks like some sort of demon".
  • He definitely hates Hexxus. Not only his pollution is extremely bad to the health of everyone in the Pantheon, he was disgusted to find out that he sounds like Scarlet Fever, the Starter Villain from his first time in another body.
  • He cannot survive that long outside a body. He often has to use a special suit that allows him to explore the outside when dealing with cases such as lice. Though he still needs a human body to stay when off the clock so the GUAG Medical Division, after a lot of research, have decided to send Osmosis to the body of one of the Ghostbusters, the scientist known as Peter Venkman. Ozzy himself was surprised when he found out, since he looks a lot like a more younger and healthier Frank, for some reason.
  • It has been discovered that if he goes to the subconscious of somebody, he can interact with them in dreams. Ozzy himself prefers to not get involved into the brain unless absolutely necessary, but he has made friends out of Princess Luna and NiGHTS, who can also enter into dreams and look after them.
  • The Madagascar Birds were weirded out by hearing his voice - when asked about it, they replied "where's the zebra?"
