Pantheon / Military Ranks

Go To

This is where the hierarchy of the military is located, housing everyone who holds a distinguishable rank on their respective army. They are the ones in charge of maintaining and looking over the lesser ranks of the Pantheon...with varying results depending on the person. Don't be surprised if you see anyone here wandering in the House of Leadership.

If someone is decorated for military honour or given a promotion, chances are it's here or at that house. This is one of several sub-houses where flag officers of the Pantheon meet to discuss strategy and doctrine.

  • I don't mock the Drowned God - I am the Drowned God. From Oldtown to Qarth, when men see my sails, they pray.
  • Ascended to the Pantheon after laying waste to Daenerys Targaryen's fleet, much to the delight of Cersei Lannister and the anger of Daenerys Targaryen. He was originally slated to ascend following him becoming King of the Iron Isles, but that was delayed. Fortunately, Cersei used a portion of the stolen Tyrell gold to smooth things over, allowing Euron to ascend proper.
  • The younger brother of Balon Greyjoy, Balon is a talented sailor and commander. However, things went downhill for his family when Balon rebelled against the fledgling Baratheon regime. While he had declared for his brother and was the mastermind behind the attack which destroyed Tywin Lannister's fleet at Lannisport, the Greyjoy Rebellion would end in failure, driving Euron into exile.
    • Tywin Lannister had not forgotten that little detail, and vows that "Euron Greyjoy will pay his debts" to the Lannisters. He's also not too keen seeing Euron in cahoots with his murderous, kinslaying/queenslaying daughter.
  • His ship is The Silence, which he named following him ripping out the tongues of his crew. This came after he went batshit insane during a storm whilst sailing the Jade Sea and his crew had to tie him to the mast from throwing himself overboard. When asked why he did that, Euron casually replied, "I needed the silence."
  • Euron has a morbid fascination with the most infamous of Old Gods, Cthulhu. Maybe because it shares several similarities with the Drowned God, or maybe Euron can be in its presence without going even more insane (as it such a thing can be more possible).
  • Hears that there is a Pirate King in the Pantheon. Euron's curiosity is piqued when he discovers that the Pirate King is in fact one Elizabeth Swann Turner. "My kind of woman," Euron notes upon hearing of how she fought - and got married - during the Battle of Calypso's Maelstrom. First things first: kill her husband, then usurp the title of Pirate King from Elizabeth and make her his salt wife. "I pay the iron price," Euron said.
  • Turns out that Euron has a thing for powerful women. Sure he's betrothed to Cersei, but there are other deities who are younger and more attractive than her. Emily Kaldwin is such a woman. "A fighter as well as a warrior," Euron notes. Emily, for her part, is not interested in Euron, thankfully. Corvo is not amused in the least.
    • Euron also has an unhealthy obsession with Geralt's foster daughter, Ciri Elen Riannon. A hunter of the supernatural and an Empress? And her deified cousin, the Duchess of Touissant isn't bad-looking either. This pisses Geralt off something serious.
  • Heard about Red Sonja's challenge, and decides to take her up on it. Too bad that Euron is a rapist. While not on part with Gregor Clegane, that little detail still set Sonja off. Euron was forced to retreat, lest the furious swordswoman try and geld him.
  • Euron finds himself on most of the pirate deities' shit-list. He is, however, absolutely terrified of Cervantes de Leon. Euron crossed paths with the undead pirate in the past. It nearly ended with Cervantes bisecting Euron in two while possessed by Soul Edge. Even without the cursed blade, Cervantes is a threat. Euron decided that it would be best to avoid him.
    • Also steers clear of Raoh. Anyone who rides a horse the size of an elephant and can casually backhand the head off a person's shoulders is someone that needs to be watched...especially if said offender happened to be one of his men.
  • Even before leaving King's Landing to fight with the North, Jaime Lannister despises Euron. In a time which Tyrion himself kills Gregor Clegane during his trial by combat, Jaime and Euron squared off during a battle at sea. Despite Euron's sorcery and his assortment of dirty tricks (and insults), Jaime slays him, thus earning a more favorable nickname - Crowslayer.
  • Euron sees the half-naked wenches hanging around Conan and wonders what he has that makes him irresistible to the ladies. Is it his natural charm... or something else entirely? That or the fact that the deified Cimmerian is a monster on the battlefield. Euron trembles with anticipation over who is the better fighter between the two.
  • Among the many, many Houses he's banned from, the House of Dragons top the list. The reason being is that Euron is in possession of Dragonbinder, a six-foot long dragon horn that can bring a dragon under his control. That is something even the Dovahkiin cannot allow.
  • Also has a spot in Torture & Mutilation.

    Gabriel Angelos 
Gabriel Angelos, God of Captains (Captain of the Blood Ravens, 3rd Company, Savior of Tartarus, Bane of the Black Legion, Gabriel of the Hidden Heart, Chapter Master of the Blood Ravens)

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A Black Raven with a red blood drop in the center. Personally, his Daemonhammer, God-Splitter
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Space Marine, Big Good, Drop the Hammer, Cyborg, Authority Equals Asskicking, The Leader
  • Domain: Faith, Leadership, Space, War
  • Direct Superior: The God-Emperor of Mankind
  • Allies: Cyrus, Marenus Calgar, Sangunius, Vulkan, Leman Russ, Madoka Kaname, Oriko Mikuni
  • High Champion: Apollo Diomedes (Honor Guard Captain, Later promoted to Chaplain)
  • Followers: Non-ascendant Blood Ravens and Space Marine Captains
  • Completely Disappointed with: Indrick "SPESS MAHREENS" Boreale
  • Enemies: The Forces of Chaos (Khorne, in particular), Abaddon the Despoiler, Mork and Gork, Ghazkull, Nightbringer, The Deceiver, Satan, Lucifer, YVHV, ELIPHAS!
  • Ascended after having battled through countless conflicts with the rest of the Blood Ravens, which included confronting the Alpha Legion at Tartarus (and taking out a Daemon Prince of Khorne sealed from an ancient relic), leading against a Tyranid invasion and a Black Legion revolt at Aurelia, and confronting his renegade Chapter Master who just ascended into another Khornate Daemon.
  • Some fear him, because he called down the Inquisition to destroy his own homeworld, Cyrene, upon discovering a taint of Chaos. However, he has regretted his home's destruction.
  • Although he cares for the well-being of his fellow Blood Ravens, he is rather disappointed with Indrick Boreale who became rather infamous for the failure in the Kaurava System, and his tendency to spread the word of The Blood Ravens in...rather weird ways.... His fellow brother, Cyrus, doesn't wish to speak about it.
  • Surprisingly eyed by the God of Courage as a plausible inheritor of the Goldion Crusher apart from Vita. Angelos himself felt honored upon hearing the same, but nonetheless declined the offer since he's still busy with Diomedes in cleansing his entire chapter after his predecessor fell into Khorne's sway and nearly left the Blood Ravens undermanned. And that's not even counting Boreale's ill-fated Kaurava campaign.
  • Though he owes a great deal of gratitude towards his High Champion, he's rather skeptic of his speech pattern, which loosely reminds him of Boreale.
  • Each and every time that he and his chapter fights the enemies of humanity, they always bring back hundreds of relics and various items with them after the battle. There is a reason why they are sometimes called "The Bloody Magpies" and why the enemy does everything they can in order to nail everything they have down to the ground.
  • Rumors say that Gabriel Angelos loves to throw dildos at people without warning and motivation. He has yet to say of the matter.
  • The GUAL and their psychotic command structure is a tragic reminder of an Old Shame of his. That, and orders from The Emperor is why he has joined the Rebellion faction of The Pantheonic Rebellion.
  • There has been some speculation that the Blood Ravens were originally a chapter of the Thousand Sons, followers of Magnus the Red. Neither Angelos nor Magnus have commented on the theory as of yet.

  • In the past days of the galaxy, the Republic ruled all, the Senate was in charge of controlling the law and all systems would comply. That all changed when a secessionist government known as the Confederate of Independent Systems came in, under the pretense of excessive corruption within the Senate and dissatisfaction on the Core Worlds. At some point, political turmoil began amongst the Republic and the CIS, culminating into the legendary Clone Wars. One of the heads of the slowly rising Confederacy was Count Dooku and among those he employed as general of the armies was General Grievous, whose presence would be a terrifying sight in the battlefields of the Clone Wars.
    • Originally a Kaleesh warlord, Grievous was the leader of Separatist Alliance's Droid Army and one of their greatest warriors, especially once he decided to let his body to be turned into a cyborg to improve his fighting abilities to match even those of the Jedi. Even though he might be a general, he spends a lot of his time doing his own kills and has practiced lightsaber combat under Dooku's experienced training, thus becoming a threat to any Jedi that encountered him. When the secrecy of the Sith started making way, the plans of Dooku and Grievous changed, and so did the tide of the war. Once the Confederacy was winning, suddenly they were losing. Dooku's death lead to Grievous taking the helm, but not even his commanding skills kept the new government afloat, and following major defeats, was finally killed and burned by his arch nemesis, Obi-Wan Kenobi, without realization that Grievous and Dooku were pawns to the new face of the Republic: the Galactic Empire.
  • Once he ascended into the Pantheon, the Confederacy did their best to make sure that Grievous would get back into shape from his barely active self he had become at the end of the war. They were mostly successful, but he does tend to cough quite a bit which for some reason they cannot solve, as it may have been a side effect for all his cybernetic enhancements. Further more, when the Sith approached him once again, he would be dragged into a new series of conflicts that slowly gained his interest, both for the Confederacy and to satiate his hunger for battle.
    • Those within the Grand United Alliance of Good have started creating countermeasures the moment Grievous was spotted within the premises, as they expect the Sith to recuperate with Grievous and the Confederacy as a sort of second front. Some may want to ask if whether or not he knows what Palpatine has done towards him near the end of the war, but if it means bringing him back to battle and killing Jedi, then it is good for him. He'll start collecting their lightsabers, and if not, probably their heads.
  • In a lot of sense, Grievous is what Anakin would become in the future. He did not expect such comparison, but upon seeing the eponymous Darth Vader, he may have seen why the comparisons were drawn, alongside Maul and Dooku as "Proto-Vaders", and in Grievous, it may have represented Vader's future with the wheezing and cybernetics as hints. Grievous is rather glad that based on how things are in the Pantheon now, he is against Darth Vader rather than with him as he still has a beef with him on the Clone Wars even though he still (somewhat) takes orders from the Sith.
  • On the topic of Jedi, there are reasons why he is one of the most feared throughout the Clone Wars. Outside of being a powerful general and a strategist, he takes pride in killing Jedi Masters and Padawan alike, large amounts of Jedi deaths during the wars were by his hand and those that do face him nearly got killed despite assistance from the Force. First-hand witness accounts were made by Ahsoka and Ventress, both of which have had numerous encounters with him, and Ventress has made it sure that Grievous has become personal thanks to one incident.
    • There is one Jedi that Grievous remembers, one that has had him on his nerves for every sight he has with him to the point of considering him as his arch-nemesis. It was Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has become the biggest thorn of Grievous' life. After facing him for the first time pre-Clone Wars era, that signified a long streak of mixed win-loss battles between the two, as Grievous' upgrades were either equal to Obi-Wan's Jedi Mastery but on some cases Obi-Wan would see victory even on the worst circumstances. Now that the two have been spotted in the Pantheon, the vendetta between the two may rise once again, as well as an exchange of greetings:
    Obi-Wan: Hello there!
    Grievous: Hello there.
    • Outside of Obi-Wan, the other Jedi has taken caution the moment Grievous reappeared. Luke Skywalker, one of the few Jedi who never experienced the Clone Wars, sought more interest in him as he is one of the few relic figures of the war, while Yoda believes that the cyborg's lust for combat is so deep that it is nearly impossible to redeem him. The two have warned other Jedi and many other heroes not to face Grievous unless they are ready. There is a reason why he is a Jedi Hunter. Then where was Mace Windu, who bespoke how Grievous' presence only means war for the Confederacy and it seems he is right, though hearing that his true intention was to kill the Jedi Order (despite not being a part of the Sith) made him more determined to kill him.
    • Hero killers alike took notice of Grievous' history and has immense respect for him. Barbatos Goetia seem to have quite a bit of respect to the cyborg as he is afterall, the Pantheon's resident Hero Killer even though many villains may even be considered for that position outside of him, Grievous included. On the cyborg's end however, he seems to dismiss his respect since he may be of little use for the Confederacy. Ultron also approached him, seeing that the duo are often notorious for killing other characters with no mercy, although on Ultron, he never had a natural body to begin with.
    • Some have not welcomed him despite sharing similar hate towards heroes and Hero Killer Stain, despite his name, has spoken vocally against Grievous and his gleeful murder of many heroes, all of which compounded by the former's lack of mercy, and he's not doing it to teach the Jedi a lesson, he's doing it for a future with no Jedi. If anything, Grievous is Stain's antithesis, a person willfully murdering anyone they see fit as a hero, more for the glory of combat than a principle.
  • While he is easily angered, one thing what angers him the most is calling him a mere droid. He is much more than that and he is ready to proof it. He is, to reiterate a warlord-cyborg and not a machine as he is capable of thinking. He is also greatly annoyed by Viktor's insistence on this "Glorious Evolution" due of him thinking that Grievous will join him on that but he only has one objective only, to destroy the Jedi Order and further compounded by the fact that his meeting with Ultron lead to one of his allies mistaking him as a robot and unintentionally inviting him to the Grand United Alliance of Machines, a move which seriously pissed him off that it nearly costed his relations with Ultron.
    • And while at it, the Grand United Alliance of Machines have kept an eye out on him, seeing his droid army to be a valuable asset. Granted, Grievous does hate the army at times of incompetence, and mistreats most of the droids, but would rather keep them under his command instead of lending them to a another alliance, especially when the Grand United Alliance of Evil have already brought him under check. Though he sometimes deploy some of his droid forces to the GUAM at times when he wants to increase his war effort though some have noticed that the droid units are sometimes missing from the delivery with fingers pointing to SKYNET, as it has taken some of his droids in the process to repossess them into Terminator units.
  • Anyone who has an idea of Grievous will probably remember his ability to wield four lightsabers with four arms, something he takes pride on for his cybernetic enhancements. Few have willfully wanted to challenge him and Goro and Mistral soon found another person to add in the "multi-armed" list. On combat, Goro found to be rather efficient in hand-to-hand combat, but when it came to weapons, (and a little bit of cheating) Grievous won by slicing off his arms one by one. Mistral on the other hand, was able to resupply her arms rather easily despite Grievous' fast responses, until all he decided to do was use a blaster and shot her on the head.
    • Some connections between Mistral and Grievous might either be coincidental or unintentional. For one, they are battle-hungry cyborgs who wield a multitude of arms. They also chose their cybernetics to enhance their fighting skills and seem to treat their minions rather unfairly. On Grievous' part, he might be considering hiring her and the rest of Desperado to help fill some shoes on the Confederacy, like the time he hired a droid bounty hunter to kill Mace Windu.
  • At one point, he was challenged by Gilgamesh in a battle once, probably because he wanted more people to fight. Reportedly both of them lost a weapon to another. Well, the weapon did make a fine addition to his collection. Then it went further, when he encountered von Twirlenkiller and Skeleton Prime. Grievous took some of Skeleton Prime's arms for his newfound collection of battle trophies while Twirlenkiller denied any chance for Grievous to gather any of his jet turbines. And when he did, he challenged him into a multi-arm fight but the jet turbines didn't really help as he simply went onto a spider position and chased him down. He got out with at least one jet turbine in his new collection.
    • He was suddenly asked for a challenge against the servant Cú Chulainn in a duel, of which insulted Grievous and decided to accept it in order to humiliate him. Even with 4 lightsabers in his possession, what was a simple easy beginning for Grievous turned into a sudden change of tide for the Lord of the Spear, as he slowly pierced through all of Grievous' arms, but not until he retreated back to his HQ. To him, this is an embarrassing defeat that reminded him of his time being captured by Darth Maul and the Mandalorians.
  • It was an honor for Daedric Prince Hircine to see the bloodlust Grievous has earned, from his apathetic care for anyone, to his relentless commanding skills. What sold both on each other was how they both cared less on politics and only mattered fighting their targets. To him, his hunt for Jedi has given him earned respect from the Prince, though the cyborg general cares less and continued his warpath.
  • There are some rumours that Grievous might not have been as bad as most people think he was. Some people claim that he was in the past a zealous fighter who became a Fallen Hero after the death of his loved one and joined the Separatist Alliance to help his people, before one "incident" where his ship exploded what forced him to be turned into a cyborg, during which he was turned into the sadistic monster he is known now. As it turned out, this was the case; or rather, it was the case. As it stands now, Grievous was always a cold-blooded killer who turned himself into a cyborg since he wanted to become the strongest warrior in the galaxy.
    • Another part of him people started noticing was his desire of the Force. If he was a warrior rivalling the Jedi, the Force is one thing he grew interest in, but gutting his flesh and skin may have proven to be a fatal mistake. He may have dreams of the Force, but the removal of his natural body may have severed any connections he may have had with the entity, rendering his attempts to be rather futile. On the other hand though, he can easily modify his body at any point so it isn't a huge loss for him.
  • Grievous was drafted into the Grand United Alliance of Evil alongside Dooku by Palpatine to serve as replacement adjutants for his turncoat apprentice Darth Vader (who soon departed the GUAE entirely). While Dooku was unhappy to serve as he no longer sought to be under the yoke of a master who forsook his survival for a new apprentice, Grievous relishes an opportunity to be part of the Pantheon's Forever War, eliminating enemies as he sees fits. He does still harbour resentment towards Palpatine for maneuvering the Separatists to self-destruct to establish his new Empire as the end goal. He was also mad at Dooku for being in on this and not informing him, but this anger dissipated much quicker. He has not forgiven him however.
    • As a wielder of 4 lightsabers, Conquest Command often wants Grievous to take frontline combat duty befitting of his new trope, as the Sith are notoriously fickle at being in combat. Sadly, Grievous has his own ideas of how to combat too, having been taught by Dooku to use psychology to his advantage. He's not some mere Jedi fighting at the front. He's a planner and an armchair general too, and thus usually attacks when he can use intimidation to his advantage or to finish off worthy opponents.
  • Cyborgs have a rather unlikeable opinion on him, believing his over-obsessive combat tendencies just puts them off, especially with perhaps his counter-opposite, RoboCop. The numerous killings and stealing of objects just to fit his collection qualify for murder and theft, and it seems Grievous' charges may be higher and counting. The comparisons for the duo stem from the fact that both were heavily injured from their human lives which lead to them being rebuilt with cybernetics. The difference comes from their intentions to be cyborgs with Alex Murphy for his injury and his willingness to continue to fight crime, while Grievous just to continue his war effort. This only lead to further hatred between the two but many guess that with the latter's experience in general, 9 times out of 10 will Grievous win with ease.
    • The God of Cyborgs however was not pleased hearing Grievous' return, believing him to be the worst case of a cyborg, both for his hunger for battle and his lack of empathy. When Grievous heard this, he gave a visit to Victor and then the rest of the Teen Titans, dealing a massive blow until all of them retreated. To him, Cyborg's message will serve as a reminder to the massive scale of the CIS military.
    • Some cyborgs however have taken a liking with him and started joining his side just to participate in fights, with Frost and Sektor among those who joined Grievous. He especially likes the latter with his unwillingness to show empathy being a key factor to considering him to join his military. And while we're at it, he has taken interest with Gigan, likely to repurpose him with Confederate military technology upgrades though some have argued that he is only interested in him for the arm-blades he has and not the alien himself.
  • Outside of Dooku, he seems to be not alone. The Confederate Wat Tambor ended up greeting him upon his re-arrival, possibly meaning that Tambor ascended while Grievous was busy someplace else. It will take time for the Confederacy to rebuild, but with the leadership of it being at a toss between him and Dooku, he might need to cut off some costs in order to operate again.
  • Rumour has spread that Grand Admiral Thrawn acquired his mask some time after his death. How legitimate this is is up for debate, given his resurrected self in the Pantheon has his mask back. Nevertheless, he plans on confronting Thrawn personally just to get it back.
  • Apparently he loves to collect lightsabers in combat, as part of his collection of lightsabers. While he has two in his posession (he actually had more lightsabers), he still considers it a collection, probably to showcase it like a battle trophy of sorts. Some took notice of it and called it his hobby.
    Obi-Wan: So uncivilized.
  • There was a time when the CIS took direct hits from other armies, key among those were armies that relish on weaponry, possibly stealing them for their own purpose. That was his experience when the Corpus invaded his base and took a few supplies, but the Corpus never reported back, instead they were greeted with Grievous showcasing every single helmet of each Corpus soldier that participated in the raid, all on his ship. A warning to any intruder or army that dared to cross paths against him.
  • There was a rumor that Shaggy was among those who have fallen against Grievous and it did not take long for the general to recognize him as Sha'a Gi, one of the Jedi he slayed from the beginning battles of the Clone Wars. While Shaggy feared for his life, Grievous can't help but feel disappointed that he had no lightsaber with him, however, his head will suffice.
  • Will refer to people as "General Kenobi" if people say "Hello there" around him (or anyting resembling a similar-sounding sentence).
  • "I'm no errand boy. And I'm not in this war for Dooku's politics! I am the leader of the most powerful droid army the galaxy has ever seen!"

  • Feared by: Milla Basset
  • A colonel in the military of Amestris, who first met the Elric brothers while stationed in East City. Known as the Flame Alchemist for his ability to create flames by manipulating the oxygen in the air, he's a remarkably capable commander who seeks to become the Führer so he can fix the country and spread his ideals to the people. Set on this quest (as well as scarred for life) by his role as a "Hero" of the horrific Ishval Civil War, he became the third most important protagonist behind the brothers themselves in the story of the Fullmetal Alchemist.
    • While eventually reaching the rank of General by the end of things, the most important parts of his rise up the ranks of the State Military came with him as a Colonel, during which he became an exemplar of what it means to hold such rank highly. The Court of the Gods ascended him as the God of Colonels to show him this respect. This seat had previously been held by Jade Curtiss, the Necromancer, who willingly handed the position to Mustang. Curtiss took residence in the House of Knowledge as the God of Creating Combat Clones, but later changed to the God of Celibate Eccentric Geniuses, now seated in the House of Science. The two are on good terms, even moreso after Curtiss' reading in the house brought him to a Heel Realization about his scientific arts which reminded Roy of the Elric brothers' horror at discovering the power source of a Philosopher's Stone.
    • To reconcile the rank issue, he holds the permanent rank of Colonel anywhere else but in the GUAG also holds the brevet rank of Brigadier General. He finds it a pain to change insignia whenever he makes the switch from active duty to off-duty so he usually wears his colonel outfit. The last time he wore the uniform of a one-star GUAG general he nearly got kicked out of the Pantheon for not 'representing' his title but the mistake was quickly cleared up.
  • He snarks near-constantly, even when he’s been blinded, but that isn’t fooling anyone; his raw power when he does get into a fight can be absolutely terrifying, especially when he’s good and pissed – his reputation in the GUAG Combat Division is hard-earned and well-deserved.
  • One of the Pantheon’s must trusted field commanders and strategists. Although his sarcasm and his aloof demeanor make some soldiers hesitant to approach him, those who are closest to him — especially Hawkeye — are well aware of his knack for bringing out the best in the troops under his command. Even Major Armstrong, who's not his direct subordinate, was inspired rather that intimidated when Roy trusted him with the truth about Amestris. Nick Fury appreciates this about Mustang and respects his opinion above most others outside of SHIELD for this reason.
  • Contrary to what one might believe, water won't take him down easy. As a matter of fact, its two components just feeds him more fire to use. Though rainy weather is a different matter, as it denies him the ability to create the spark needed to make fire. That and any allies of his would get burnt as well when in the rain.
  • After that business with Father and the Homunculi, Roy's particularly wary of anything that smells like a scheme. He keeps close tabs on Thrawn, and he sure as hell keeps his eyes on Kimball Kinnison.
  • Mustang's determination to right the wrongs he committed in Ishval, even knowing full well that doing so would see him imprisoned for war crimes, has earned him a great deal of respect from some of the other gods; even Martin Walker and the Tenth Doctor agree that Mustang has long since atoned for his sins, but there’s no telling him that.
  • True to his word, on the day he took his seat on the Pantheon, the order was passed down: all goddesses and female officers are henceforth required to wear… TINY MINISKIRTS!
    • …Nobody complies, though.
  • Often spars with Johnny Storm, since they both apply the same element in battle but do so very differently.
  • Finds it admirable how despite the fact that Hayate Yagami's great range and power combined with terrible aim causes her fellow troops to have to evacuate and leave her to fight solo whenever she steps on the front lines, she's still willing to do so just to help them.
  • The fact that both he and Relius Clover share the same voice is a terrible shock to him.
  • He's far more pleased at sharing this voice with Guile and Gaius, though. Given his commonalities with both men (Guile is a battle-tested respected soldier whose mission included avenging a glasses-wearing hyper-competent best friend killed by the main threat to his universe, while Gaius took over a corrupt ruling system and changed it from the inside into a righteous force to protect its people), this is not surprising.
    • Is also good with Guile's hyper-compentent best friend. With Nash ascending to the Pantheon after his second death, Mustang met the man and gave him a heads-up about Father and he agreed to stay alert regarding the Homunculus. Charlie reminds Roy of the serious sides of both Maes Hughes and Jean Havoc, especially given he sounds like the latter.
    • Before Gaius ascended, the King's partnered spirit Muzét had confused Roy for Gaius due to their voices and, after realizing the truth, offered to direct tether with him anyway. He agreed to this at first, but began to regret it when she got a bit clingy. Thankfully this died down with Gaius's ascension.
  • One day he was going over notes when he happened upon a young woman passing through who seemed to have the presence of a soldier. Curious, he stopped and engaged this girl in a conversation which quickly became a mock war strategy debate. She impressed him with her ability to keep up, until she mentioned that she got her experience from an academy, which immediately raised alarm bells because she was too good for just some academy student and got him asking questions. The answers he got were a basic introduction to the life and quest of Satsuki Kiryuin. The good colonel came away respecting Satsuki for going through a campaign similar to his own, but she also reminded him of another, older authoritative Lady of War from his own world. Also, he finds Ragyo to be utterly monstrous.
    • During one meeting with Nick Fury, Roy suddenly got cold shivers and couldn't explain why. He later learned that at precisely that moment, said lady of war, Olivier Mira Armstrong, had gained her own temple in the Pantheon.
  • Milla the Hound is afraid of him because of his "I LOVE DOGS!" speech, which praises the canine kind… because they'll take being treated like underlings without asking for a raise. Little does she get, anthropomorphic dogs who may as well be considered nature-made chimeras in his world's terms are not exactly what he's talking about…
  • Sometime after the ascensions of both the Ishvalan called Scar and Roy's confidante and would-be lover Riza Hawkeye, Riza told him about a young man she met at the house of Canines who tried to shy away from the dogs but was surprisingly good with them; later rumors of an incident between a youth and Scar turned out to be about the same young man, named Shinjiro Aragaki. After doing some research into his life story and discovering that Aragaki accidentally killed a young man's innocent parents, he met up with Shinjiro and told him not to be so hard on himself, as there were many in the Pantheon who'd done much worse than he.
  • Speaking of those who've done much worse, Envy was recently revealed within the Pantheon. Roy greeted Envy's return about the way you'd expect. He also petitioned hard in response to revive Hughes within the Pantheon, and initially was very glad for it when it finally happened… until Hughes drove Roy to drink by arriving on a ship with his daughter Elicia's face on it and gushing over pictures of his family again. Nevertheless, he introduced Hughes to allies against Father who Maes had yet to meet such as Greed, the reformed Scar, the Major General herself, and new allies in the Pantheon such as Guile and Charlie.

  • Enemies: SKYNET, Sektor, Lex Luthor, Bane, Leatherface, General Shepherd
  • Not To Be Confused With: Bill Goldberg
  • Marcus Fenix was the first to find out about his ascension, and was out on one of the Pantheon's many heliports to greet Delta Squad's resident mechanic/engineer (and resident jerk), Damon S. Baird, who arrived in the Pantheon via Kings Raven Helicopter.
    Marcus: Welcome to the Pantheon, Baird.
    Baird: Aw, fuck.
  • Like Marcus, Baird grew up in an aristocratic family. He had a passion for technology, with the only "happy memory" regarding his sheltered upbringing was "building things and tinkering with machines." In school, he was The Ace, passing his exams with ease and spending his spare time inventing gadgets. Originally aspiring to become an engineer, his parents gave him an ultimatum: enlist in the army or forfeit your inheritence. Baird chose the former. Unfortunate, he joined the armed forces of the Coalition of Ordered Governments on Emergence Day, in which both his parents were killed.
  • Baird had originally requested The Engineer, but seeing what Issac Clarke had went through, decided that he was more deserving of the post. Despite his attitude, Issac and Baird have a mutual respect for one another.
  • 25 years after the Locust War, Baird is the CEO of DB Industries (of whose creations make up most of the COG's forces) and is the Honorary Uncle to Marcus's son, James Dominic Fenix, alongside Cole. Due to Baird's snarky attitude and the fact that James and his friends had fought off wave after wave of Baird's creations, their relationship is rocky at best. But Baird cares for JD and said nephew has a grudging respect towards Baird.
    • During this time, he hooked up with Samantha Byrne. But she's not his wife, but rather his "special ladyfriend". Of course, given all they've been through, they are happy together, despite their banter during the Locust War. Case in point:
    Sam: Oh, Baird, that house over there. I can see it now: you, me, a couple of kids and a dog.
    Baird: Yeah, and my great big bottle of suicide pills.
    Sam: That'll save me from poisoning your dinner.
    Baird: You'll miss me one day.
    Sam: Only if somebody bumps my elbow.
    Baird: (deadpan) Ha-ha.
    • And there's this little gem:
    Baird: I suppose you want me to say I've always loved you. But I don't! I really, really don't!
  • Really hates Sektor for trying to steal his tech in order to further the creation of the Tekunin, his robo-ninja clan. Sektor is not a big fan of Baird either, as Baird's chainsaw bayonet reminds him too much of Cyrax's buzzsaw.
    • Really, really hates SKYNET for the same reason as above. Oh, and trying to turn his tech against him. For Baird, SKYNET is no better than Myrrah and the Locust Horde that tried to wipe out humanity.
  • Interested in S-F tech, which is why he is friends with Jax and his daughter, Jacqui. While the arm gauntlets is cool and all, Baird is very impressed with Jax's bionic arms. "If only I had something like this in the Locust War," Baird muses. When Jacqui joked about making a pair of chainsaw gauntlets for her, Baird merely smirks and says, "Hey, I can do that."
  • Seeing both him and Tony Stark speaking in techno-babble (as well going at it in snark-to-snark combat) is a sight to behold. While Baird is an expert engineer, he also excels in blowing shit up. While Tony's claim to fame was building his first set of armor in a cave (with a box full of scraps), all Baird had to work with was scraps. But give Baird a box of scraps, step back, and watch the magic happen.
  • Has a general distrust of military officers due to the actions of Colonel Loomis during the Battle of Halvo Bay (which resulted in him being permanently stripped of his commission) He tends to connect more with the enlisted personnel. But he does make exceptions for a couple of the Pantheon's military personnel. On one end, he's cool with Gunny Sergeant Hartmann because he reminds him of Colonel Hoffman. General Shepherd, on the other hand...he wants to saw the bastard in half. Loomis was a dick, but General Shepherd blew him out the water for offing his subordinates and instigating a war.
    • And after the past antics of Chairman Prescott and First Minister Jinn, Baird has placed crooked politicians in the same category.
  • Became friends with Doomguy after one incident in which Doomguy caught Baird tinkering with the BFG 9000. Baird had increased the weapon's power a hundredfold, which earned him a fist-bump from Doomguy as a result. But what Doomguy really wants is a Lancer. An assault rifle with a chainsaw for a bayonet? His reaction was priceless when Baird lent Doomguy a spare Lancer:
    Doomguy: (singing) Hoy, hoy, I'm the boy. Packin' forty pounds of heavenly joy...
  • Nobody was surprised to see Baird getting along well with Bruce Banner (they're both eggheads after all), but many deities were surprised to see him getting along just as well with the Hulk. After all, with such a large gap in intellect, it's hard to imagine those two having anything in common.

  • Rival/Worthy Opponent: Karena 'Lupo' LesProux of The Wolfpack
  • Enemies:
  • The news have been playing almost non-stop on the Federal Network. For the people of the United Citizen Federation, it's a good reason to celebrate. Colonel Johnny Rico, legendary war hero, has ascended to the Pantheon, thanks in part to Dwayne Hicks sponsoring his ascension. And being the masters of propaganda, the Federation is milking this for all its worth.
    • Rico's ascension coincided with an Arachnid assault on the Pantheon, reminding Rico of the assault at Whiskey Outpost. It took Rico's Roughnecks and his Marauder Squad, along with Doomguy (wielding his BFG 9K), The Courier and the Lone Survivor (both wielding Fat Man launchers) to repel the attack. That's not counting Doomguy getting hopped up on a Berserker Pack and gleefully chewing the scenery as he ripped the bugs apart with his hands.
  • A brief background on the United Citizen Federation: at the end of the 20th century, Earth was locked in the time of violence and horror known simply as the Disorders. Then, a group of military veterans took control and stabilized the planet. Primarily, the government is split between two groups, citizens and civilians. Civilians are not discriminated against, and have some level of equal rights. Citizens are those who served in the Federation's military and are honorably discharged. Not only does Citizens have the right to vote, but also attend university on the Federation's dime. Despite its achievements, the Federation is nothing more than a fascist dystopia.
  • Liu Kang, upon seeing Rico, had commented that Rico reminded him of "a certain actor who is an annoying buffoon." Cassie Cage, for her part is considering a mentorship under Rico.
  • Did a double-take upon seeing Barbara Gordon. When asked about this incident, Rico replied, "She reminds me of Dizzy."
  • Rico's older incarnation is a spitting image of a younger Big Boss post-Operation Snake Eater. You can only tell the difference between the two due to Rico having more scars than Jack. The similarities isn't lost on Rico.
  • Friends with Damon Baird due to both men sharing nearly the same experiences growing up; both came from wealthy families, but while Baird was ordered to join the military or lose his inheritance, Rico's civilian parents were against him joining the military. And both men lost their parents; Rico when a Bug Meteor flattened Buenos Aires, Damon when the Locust Horde kicked off Emergence Day.
  • Karena LesProux of the Wolfpack sees Rico as something of a worthy opponent "He has proven to be very hard to kill. My kind of man," she muses. "Pity. He would've been at home with the Wolfpack."
  • Enemies with General Shepherd. Rico himself was once a general (before getting himself demoted to Colonel) and while his beloved Federation isn't perfect, even he is horrified with Shepherd's actions (killing allied soldiers and starting World War III). Shepherd can't call Rico a hypocrite since Rico owned up to his government's antics.
  • Hates the Xenonorphs, since not only do they remind him of those dammed Bugs, but their acid blood damages his Marauder power armor, and those damn things are expensive to replace. But the Graboids could be a serious problem, both for the Bugs and mankind.

    Mori Motonari 
Mori Motonari, God of Jackass War Commanders (Child of the Sun, Kahz, Sunday Mori, Tactful Leader)

  • Theme Song: This
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The sun atop of the Mori Clan Crest. Below the crest are dead soldiers on the same crest.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Treating Soldiers Like Dirt, Sending Soldiers To Death Traps And Bringing More Pawns, One Man Tactical Genius (And Bragging About It A Lot), Genius Bruiser, Rings of Death, Trap Master, Declaring And Killing Failures, Popularity Power, Thinking That Only He Matters, Pretty Boys, Evil People Using Light
  • Domains: War, Glory, Traps, Knowledge, Combat
  • Pawns: Doug Neidermeyer, General Damon, Miwa Sakimori. They can all be tossed in the middle of fire for Motonari's plans.
  • Allies: There's no allies, just pawns. Although he does have an Odd Friendship with Serperior.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Otani Yoshitsugu
  • Enemies: Chosokabe Motochika, The Tactician, Date Masamune, Sanada Yukimura, The Good Gods of the House of Friendship, Jack Sparrow, Edward Newgate, Taokaka, Nozomi Yumehara, Leona, Yuuki Terumi
  • Walking the path of glory by himself, Motonari's body count of both sides, enemies or allies alike, with his plans and his martial prowess granted him a place in the Pantheon, challenging many about the arts of 'treating your soldiers like disposable pawns', a thing he mastered and ascended to legendary levels. However, so far none has ever reached the level of style and efficiency Motonari had. It's the reason why he ascended as well: He may treat his soldiers like dirt, but he makes up for it with cleverness and high efficiency.
  • He surpassed Doug Neidermeyer, the Trope Namer himself, when he just deflected the attempt to be shot by his soldier, and proceeds to publicly execute said backstabber for insolence, then bring victory for his side with his genius. For that, he also made Neidermeyer kiss his feet and swear loyalty to him. Oh, and he stomps on his head afterwards.
  • He can't stand those who are Too Dumb to Fool. They are more likely to serve as his Spanner in the Works. Besides Yukimura Sanada, the usual suspect, there's also that dumbass cat Taokaka. Facing those two often makes Motonari revert to more brutish takes on strategy, as much as he usually dislikes strategies in that vein. Odds are, however, that sighting Itachi Uchiha (Who, unlike Yukimura and Tao, isn't Too Dumb to Fool,) on the battlefield is enough to make even him beat a hasty retreat, putting the latter on the top of his Spanner list.
  • Has a dislike of Gods that are also pirates, for they remind him of that pink-coated pirate buffoon from Shikoku.
    • Now that Motochika, the aforementioned pink-coated pirate, ascended...a fierce battle between the two is coming.
  • Just like Masamune, somewhere in the realm, there was another man, who goes by the same name. A calmer, more amiable man, whose only wish is to be a historian (and happens to sound like Itachi Uchiha and even the other Toyotomi Hideyoshi). Unlike Masamune and a few others, Motonari is generally uninterrested in this 'counterparts' business.
    • That said, even if he's uninterrested in counterparts, he has nothing good to say about his counterpart, mainly in regard to his "less-than-lofty" attitude and ambitions. Needless to say, said arrow-bracer-wielding-counterpart is not amused, and takes more care to avoid causing trouble with the Mr. Sun-portrayal. Word has it that the arrow-bracer, in his own inimitable style, is already making preparations, just in case things begin to go even more sour. One facet of that is that he has Kobayakawa Takakage on his side, to really rub it in that glory can be achieved with more than one person. One thing the alternate Motonari knows is that he makes good use of his metaphor of 'three arrows together are harder to break than one single arrow', while this Motonari couldn't care less.
    • Eventually, however, Motonari decided to investigate that anectode out of curiosity. He ended up tearing the message apart, saying that, if he was expected to say that to his 'family'... well, he'd rather die. In the end, Motonari surprisingly accepted his alternate self's challenge, if only to show him that his anectode is full of bullshit and in the end, you only need ONE arrow to hit its mark.
  • Has earned the eternal enmity of Nozomi Yumehara (Cure Dream) due to constantly tossing his soldiers to their doom and treating them like garbage everyday. Motonari, predictably, just treats her like a noisy little girl that can't even comprehend the level of genius he operates on.
  • For all his jackassery and ego, though, there's just one being that Motonari utterly has no respect for. That being is Yuuki Terumi. Motonari sees him as nothing but a dishonest fool, lacing in anything resembling integrity, regardless of how much chaos Terumi foments. And that disgusts him.
  • He also has a keen dislike towards the House of Faith. Merely standing on the gate of the houses kept reminding him of one of his darkest hours: the day he 'was briefly converted into Xavism' and calling himself 'Sunday Mori'. And it was like brain cancer to him.
    • There is a rumor floating about that he also evades the House of Faith because prolonged exposure to such an environment could cause him to regress into that former persona, a thing he'd understandably want to avoid.
  • Had long anticipated Yoshitsugu Otani's ascension to the Pantheon, and has formulated several strategies and counter-strategies for when the Toyotomi advisor decided to appear. His prediction proved true when Gyobu made his appearance in the House of Hatred. The two have been civil, if not courteous, so far, seeming to be plotting together. But those in the know can see the daggers both men have waiting for the other.
  • You'd think that Serperior and Motonari wouldn't get along that well. Quite the opposite, actually. The two of them are a perfect match. When she's around him, he shows… a little more regard to his troops.
  • As one who goes through his/her battles with zero casualties, the Tactician is in full opposition to Motonari's complete disregard of the lives of his troops. Motonari on his part thinks the Tactician is wasting too much time on "maintaining such a perfect streak" and awaits the day he can shatter the Tactician's mentality, taunting that such mentality will never get him S-Rank in hard modes, while he definitely will. Of course, what he failed to observe was that apparently to achieve S-Rank, 'care towards subordinates' was actually required.

  • Enemies: All heroic Gundam deities (especially Kira Yamato, Lacus Clyne, Shiro Amada, and Aila Jyrkiainen), All Ascended Toku Heroes (especially those from Kamen Rider), Viral, Guy Shishioh, Link, Veigue Lungberg, Axel the Dark Hero, Uzu Sanageyama
  • Opposed by: Prinnies, Goomba, The Minions, Ciphias Cain
  • Muruta is the head of terrorist group Blue Cosmos and his hatred of Coordinators is as strong, if not more, as the organization in general (to be fair, his hatred is more fueled by jealously than anything). Even taking that into account, he has a strong disregard towards his own subordinates (he classifies his soldiers as equipment, for one) and even created a Super Soldier program that uses drugs to power up the mooks (albeit mooks with fatal withdrawal symptoms). He also served as an onlooker to the aircraft Dominion, and made sure his plans were in effect, even if it meant fighting the ship's captain to enforce these plans.
  • The ascended members of the Imperial Guard briefly took notice after hearing that someone has decided to represent commissars. They were very upset after they found out just how heartless and evil Muruta turned out to be.
  • Shortly after ascending, he heard of SHOCKER and decided to look over the group's progress. Not long after that, the organization offered him a spot and he gladly accepted the offer. His current role is to provide the organization with various WMDs and he even created a new Super Soldier program for the organization. This lead to SHOCKER getting new henchmen that are both capable in combat and are highly insane to go with it.
    • As far as employed members of the organization are concerned, he's been hanging out quite a bit with Nobuyuki Sugou. They usually talk about mind control and how to improve it within the organization.
    • Of course, it wouldn't come as much of a surprise to see Muruta together with Gihren Zabi, given that they both share quite a few things in common (especially their interest towards WMDs).
  • Apart from Kira Yamato and Lacus Clyne (who are already enemies with him to begin with), a number of other heroic Gundam deities hate him for certain reasons. Aila Jyrkiainen despises him due to his tendency to control his mooks through fear and mind control, which would remind her of her own tragic past. Shiro Amada also hates him, though it's for a completely different reason.
    • Even though they don't originate from Gundam, heroic mecha pilots Viral and Guy Shishioh both hate Muruta for the same reason that Shiro does. Shishioh has apparently come into conflict with Muruta before, so there's already some animosity between the two.
      • It's not just the mecha pilots who sound like Muruta who hate him. Even others such as Link, Uzu Sanageyama, Veigue Lungberg, and even Axel the Dark Hero all despise him for that vocal similarity. Granted, Muruta didn't seem to care much about what those non-mecha pilots think of him, considering how busy he was with his current plans, though an actual encounter between them could happen if he plans something that could really anger them, though that's on low priority for now.
  • Whenever he isn't working alongside SHOCKER, chances are he'll be lending some of his ideas over to HYDRA. He doesn't work with them as often as he does with SHOCKER, but the organization doesn't mind at all. In fact, both Muruta and HYDRA seem to share a similar philosophy when it comes to how mooks are used.
  • All of the Toku heroes have declared Muruta as an enemy, but the heroic Kamen Riders really have it out against him considering what he does. Him joining SHOCKER certainly made things much worse for the heroic Riders.
  • Many deities are well aware of Muruta's ruthless actions. Although he does attempt to put up a nice manner when dealing with others (given the publicity with some of the other villains and all that), whenever that "nice" image of him cracks, he's very much a crazy psychopath and things get ugly for anyone involved near him.
  • Even though they come from wildly differing time periods, Muruta was amused with the actions of Mori Motonari, another person involved with war who has a callous disregard for his own soldiers. Mori, given his selfishness, does not care at all for what Muruta thinks of him.
  • Mooks who have had a history of working with bad guys are in fierce opposition against Muruta, given his treatment of mooks. It's not stopping him from thinking up of ways to make his soldiers more dangerous at the expense of their sanity.
  • Muruta has a pistol with him, though he really only uses it if things go badly for him and is willing to threaten someone in doing things he wants done. Most of these incidents happen within SHOCKER, generally if the organization needs to back down from something. There were some instances where Muruta has shot some members with the gun if they didn't comply with his demands. Although the injuries are taken care of outside of battle, Muruta is very much bitter about not getting what he wants accomplished in the organization during battles.
  • With Muruta's arrival in the Pantheon, Rau Le Creuset is looking to use him as an Unwitting Pawn once more to try and destroy all of humanity in a manner similar to Rau's attempt back in their homeworld (via a long-standing war). There may be a chance that Muruta becomes aware of being used for something, though most aren't certain as to how he'll react to such (chances are, Muruta wouldn't care about it). Muruta himself said that as long as his opposition is destroyed, he'll be content.

  • His ascension led to multiple sides to form an Enemy Mine for the sake of preventing Bask Om to be a threat. Even Amuro and Char stopped fighting for their philosophies.
  • Ali found out about his ascension and decided to work for him. Bask laughed and accepted, and together they wreak havoc and make money together. Unfortunately it caused them to gain more enemies around the pantheon.
  • Bask was delighted to join the Pantheon under this moniker as he tries to justify (and the Court of Gods believe) that the Titans is THE STATE SEC, with them gassing colonies just to remove the anti-Federation propaganda, they are just protecting their government. Amuro and Char disagree about their justification, because of their intense racism against "Spacenoids" because of their Newtype abilities.
  • Char refuses to let him join the Grand United Alliance of Evil even though the man himself is a bigger evil than him, Char refuses to be on the same side as him, and could possibly defect if Bask joins the GUAE. So he joined the GUAL.
  • Anavel Gato cites Bask as a reason why the ""Feddies" shouldn't rule, and why the Zeon splinter group had their Operation Stardust foiled, as their high ranking member Cima defected to the Earth Federation's movement and exposed their plan. As expected, Bask just snickers at the statement.
    • On the other hand, he despises Gihren, and has promised to vaporize him if they come into direct contact.
  • It's unknown whether Bask has artificial eyes, or if he's blind behind his weird glasses.

Too bad his intention of moulding his recruits into killing machines backfired. One of them, Private Lawrence (aka 'Gomer Pyle') shot him dead in a mental breakdown from his training and promptly turned the gun on himself afterwards. This incident marked Hartman's ascension to a new training ground: the Pantheon.
  • His main job in the Pantheon is to train mortals that wishes to join any of the military forces that makes up the Pantheons defensive force.
  • His obstacle course in the mortal world was not tough enough for the Pantheon, so he added some lava pits, crocodiles, laser beams, living thornbushes and bees!
  • A bunch of Jack Frosts decided to apply to be trained by him. The sole Frost who managed to graduate did so with top honors, changed his name to Demonee-Ho, and joined the Counter-Demon Force. He credits Hartman for his success. And vocabulary.
  • His training methods might be good for military, but are not recommended for anything else. A woman called Luhy Distone tried using them on Nyarko for a month to make her a Magical Girl. It failed horribly.
  • During one of his drills, was amused to see the Toy Story crew was following him for finding his voice familiar.
  • The only deity he actually fears is The Kingpin, who reminds him of Gomer Pyle. And that's only because Rambo prefers to simply avoid Hartman, given he reminds him of both Vietnam and those Arizona sheriffs that made him destroy a whole town.

  • Made his way into the pantheon via a landing craft bringing him in. His first order of the day was finding other Marines located within the Pantheon.
  • It doesen't take him too long to find them. The first one to welcome him is none other than Tank Dempsey, a Marine from one of the same divisions that Basilone himself had served in. Dempsey immediately hands him a Browning M1919, complete with 500 rounds of ammunition, to use against any enemies he comes up against.
  • One of the few deities in the Pantheon to actively ally himself with Sgt. Hartmann, mainly due to the fact that their methods for training are very similar. Hartmann sees him as an ideal example of what a Marine should be.
  • While he does appreciate doing war-bond drives on behalf of Senator Armstrong, he doesen't exactly trust him completely, partly due to the shady nature of his associates.
  • General Shepherd also hopes to use Basilone as a way to get more support within the Pantheon for his schemes as well, but unlike Armstong the Sergeant outright turns down his offer, knowing full well that the General has ulterior motives...
  • Isn't exactly pleased that, even in the Pantheon, he still has to compete for resources with Army-aligned deities such as Major Winters and Captain Spiers. It leaves the veteran Marine in a situation where's forced into secretly taking boxes of weapons, food, and ammunition from them, not unlike during his time on Guadalcanal.
  • Is absolutely opposed to the IJN kanmusu, mainly for being reincarantions of the enemy that he had fought until his previous death on Iwo Jima. He wants nothing to do with them, even after receiving an explanation from American shipgirl O'Bannon that they mean no harm. At the very least, he won't intrude on their operations against the Abyssal fleet, knowing that doing so would have dire consequences.
    • Is similarly not willing to interact with Takeo Masaki for pretty much the same reasons.
  • Captain America takes an interest in him due to also being affiliated with war-bond drives and propaganda. Basilone readily accepts Rogers' offer to do war bond drives alongside him, having actually seen and read the very comics the Cap starred in during his very own war bond drives During the War.

  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: United States Army, Paratroopers, World War II
  • Allies: Captain America, Tank Dempsey and Nikolai Belinski, Mr. "Jane Doe", O'Bannon, Charlotte T. Yeager, Lynette Bishop, The Boss, Shiro Amada

  • Oppose: Senator Armstrong, General Shepherd
  • Upon their arrival in the Pantheon via parachuting from a C-47, their first objective was to link up and devise a plan on what to first do in the Pantheon. Winters, being the commander he is, decides to try and find deities with similar objectives to their own. Spiers, on the other hand, feels that they need to wipe out any enemies they encounter as soon as they make contact with them. For the time being, Winters decides to follow Spiers' approach, due to their uncertainty.
  • The first "enemy" the duo encounter is Adolf Hitler. While both are at first alarmed that the Nazi leader himself is in the Pantheon, once they enter his bunker their expectations are quickly shot down when they find out just how "threatening" he is. Rather than simply killing him, they decide to let him be, due to Dolfy already suffering a Fate Worse than Death in his current position.
  • The first real enemy they encounter in the Pantheon is Johann Schmidt, a high-ranking Nazi party member and leader of Nazi Germany's science division, HYDRA. It's here that they realize that the Pantheon is nothing like the war that both of them had survived in the past. They're nearly captured by the Skull's minions when they're saved by Steve Rogers and an assortment of other American-aligned deities gathered by The Captain.
    • Thanks to this wake-up call, they immediately decide to team up with Steve and his allies for the time being.
  • The second Nazi-aligned enemy they encounter is as dangerous as the first, one "Deathshead" Strasse, another high-ranking Nazi officer and head of his own research division. Compared to their incident with Schmidt however, this encounter goes off much better thanks to intelligence given to them prior by Rogers. Rather than being armed with their usual Thompson or M1 Garand, they instead bring in heavy equipment to storm the Nazi officer's headquarters, in this case a bunch of explosives and other weapons supplied to them by Mr. "Jane Doe". While initially not used to how The Soldier's weapons work, they nevertheless manage to succeed in stopping Deathshead's mech from killing them in turn.
  • The third, and apparently, final, enemy in their hitlist is Fritz von Meyer, aka "Swarm". Initially, the two of them think that he's much like the Skull and Deathshead, in part due to also being a Nazi with a scientific background. While they did get the background correct, let's just say that...
    • They do manage to take the him out, but only after they receive an M2 Flamethrower and a bunch of other weapons from Tank Dempsey, who was all too willing to help them due to being fellow Americans.
  • They decide not to take out Adenoid Hynkel, in part due to both of them finding him quite amusing, not to mention the fact that they actually, at one point, watched the very movie he came from.
  • Having dealt with their biggest threats in the Pantheon, Winters and Spiers decide to settle in and enjoy the rest of the Pantheon. Winters decides to continue with his original plan. Spiers this time agrees.
  • They're not exactly comfortable upon finding out about the Axis kanmusu, in particular Bismarck. Fortunately, an American ship girl by the name of O'Bannon clears things before the two take any action against them.
    • Charlotte Yeager does the same thing just as Spiers tries to apprehend her two Karlslandian squadronmates. It takes the efforts of Winters and Yeager to finally settle things between them.
    • Spiers eventually realizes that they and the 501st are actually Not So Different, especially with regards to how their methods work.
  • General Shepherd and Senator Armstrong take an interest in both of them due to their status as war heroes. Both of them decline to team up with them, due to their shady motives.
    • With The Boss however, the two of them immediately trust her, mainly due to her role during the Normandy Invasion and as a fellow World War II veteran.
  • They both notice that Geralt of Rivia sounds a lot like their regimental chaplain, one John Maloney. They immediately brush it off as mere coincidence...
