  • Backstory: The conductor of the flying, golden Starflight Express arrived at the Pantheon when he received a change of itinerary from the "top brass", goddess Celestria. Quite surprised to discover an as yet unknown location, he quickly resumed his lifelong work of helping everyone who needs it as Celestria ordained and advertising the Quester's Rest for Erinn. The first has been his official mission as a Celestrian since he was first appointed (it took only 300 years of training — he finished so quickly because he's a Child Prodigy); and at what a fortuitous time! It was his first mission that completed the ten-thousand-year quest of the Celestrians to get the World Tree to bloom and bear fruit, only for the momentous occasion to be interrupted by the forces of evil. Nine fell to earth a Broken Angel, but upon recovering embarked on a mission to return to the Observatory, only to immediately set out to recover the lost fruit of the World Tree, the wish-granting Fyggs; without his powers, it was a harsh journey, filled with sorrow and many sidequests: saving a Black Knight from his Dark Lady, healing a doctor in mourning, rescuing a living doll from a kidnapping, bringing water to the people of a desert, giving a dragon the power to fly again, tearing down an Evil Empire, and at the end of it all, helping to reunite two Star-Crossed Lovers, which was an errand so taxing he had to completely forsake his Celestrian heritage. As a result of his efforts, the entire remaining order of Celestrians Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence, and he was appointed Guardian Angel of the whole world. He doesn't complain, however — there's still work to do.
  • As part of completing every task in his homeworld, Nine ended up mastering every possible vocation, giving him an odd case of Combo Platter Powers. He spends most of his time in the vocation of the minstrel, for its familiarity on the one hand and its unassuming presence on the other, which really helps in his line of work. He has of late also had his halo and wings restored to him, endowing him with the power of flight once more. This has made Walking the Earth vastly easier.
  • Upon his crash-through to the Pantheon, Nine was more than surprised to discover somebody waiting for him — a wizzened old man wrapped in grey who seemed more amused than anything to see the overturned train lying in rubble. He introduced himself by claiming many called him Gandalf, but before Nine could ask any questions, the elder had whisked him along to a grand building.
  • It was within this grand building that he found himself being formally presented to Cosmos, who revealed she had reached out to Celestria in hopes of recruiting him; he had such a fantastic resume she didn't want to pass him up with so many people in need. While he seemed reluctant at first to abandon his post under Celestria, he was ultimately convinced when Cosmos pointed out he could also keep advertising the Quester's Rest.
  • Very quickly befriended Angelo and Eight after recognizing them from the Quester's Rest; they meet up periodically to swap stories, as is their tradition.
  • Nine gets along with Pit surprisingly well, even if he's not military like the latter. When he sensed Pit might be growing jealous about him having his wings, Nine offered to let Pit conduct the Starflight Express on one of his quests. Pit was absolutely thrilled, and especially respectful, since it's not often that you get to take control of someone else's temple.
  • He occasionally visits Edward Elric to see if he can learn new alchemical recipes. The Fullmetal Alchemist gets a little twitchy whenever the idea of "Alchemiracles" comes up, though he's incredibly interested in the alloy of some of the gear Nine's created.
  • One day he was getting the lay of the land with the Starflight Express when he encountered Bahamut flying along — the God of Good Dragons sensed traces of Styrmling the Sacred from Nine's own world and approached him, seeking answers. Unfortunately, it's difficult to stop a flying train in mid-air, but Nine managed. When asked Nine related his encounter with the dragons Greygnarl and Barbarus, but that he had never met Styrmling and was hoping to do so. Bahamut too showed an interest in the dragon of the sacred force and had his servants begin looking into it.
  • One of the unexpected benefits of being his own world's most dutiful angel was finding himself able to remain in Excalibur's presence with no trouble — he doesn't even make the face (as a matter of fact, his only impression is of a lonely old man). On one occasion, Excalibur even offered Nine the chance to wield him, and Nine turned him down; Nine can already use many of the powers Excalibur bestows, and he has a variety of weapons already. The closest thing the two ever had to a disagreement was when Excalibur's demands for attention threatened to get in the way of Nine helping other people. (This has it's costs — Pantheon residents can be especially wary whenever Nine and Excalibur are both in the same place, because that means the two might stop and have a chat, delaying Excalibur's exit).
  • His time spent studying as a Sage allowed him to learn Jack's Knack, which allows him to switch vocations at will. Because he retains the last set of gear he was wearing in that vocation upon transforming, he can swap from plainclothes to full body-armor instantaneously. Ezra Scarlet finds such technique interesting.
  • His first encounter with Ryouki went about as well as could be hoped, by which we mean a complete disaster; he first approached her when the sight of her halo piqued his curiosity, only for things to come quickly undone when somebody touched her halo and she completely lost her mind. Luckily, only the street was destroyed before Ryouki's mind was restored — though he had to explain to Cosmos why there was a giant sword planted in the middle of the street. Since then, however, he's made much better friends with Ryouki, and they compare shield techniques.
  • He is occasionally accused of Schrödinger Fu, especially whenever in a situation that provides him with a variety of weapons; because he has skills that can only be used with specific weapons, he can jump from using knives for Vampiric Draining to flinging Sword Beams with an axe. Somebody once tried to completely disarm him and succeeded, only for him to start throwing Razor Wind and giant boulders around.
  • As a Celestrian, one of his duties is to see souls off to the afterlife where they become stars, and so he takes a very dim view of any attempt to interrupt that process. This unfortunately led to a misunderstanding when he encountered Soul in the middle of devouring a Kishin Egg, which he mistook for a person bound for the heavens and interrupted suddenly. The ensuing fight was surprisingly tricky, given that scythes are one of the few weapon classes not in his repertoire. Once he learned what the Kishin Egg was, he backed off, but has had reservations ever since. He later clarified with Cosmos that the enterprise was legitimate.
  • The Soul Edge, on the other hand, Nine opposes unambiguously, and acts where he can to keep it from stealing souls. Much as he would like to see it destroyed, however, Cosmos requires him to hold back because such an aggression might be considered an excuse for war in the Pantheon.
  • Incredibly loyal and dutiful to his superiors and the mission, and as such a dim view of any kind of traitor. He met his own masters in combat when it became necessary to restore order under the Goddess Celestria. Naturally, takes a very poor view of Satan and the like.
  • "You there! ERRAND BOY!" So began his first encounter with Vegeta, Prince of All Saiyans. "SO! I hear you're the toughest around where you come from. A dimension-defending big shot, even! Honestly, it's hard to tell. You dress like a clown, you never speak up, and all you ever do is take orders from women." ("I heard that!" said his wife). "So, the questions is, are you a serving boy or a real man? 'Cause if you're a real man, howzabout you and me get a better idea whether you're tough enough to stick around up here? And if you're not... if— if you're— F*CKING ANSWER ME! ...NOOO, I MEANT WITH WORDS!!"

    Sol Badguy 
Sol Badguy, God of Atonement (The Guilty Gear, The Flame of Corruption, Frederick)
  • Intermediate God (Greater God in his true form)
  • Symbol: The Fireseal on the Mark of the Gears
  • Theme Song: Keep Yourself Alive 2 or 3, or Ride the Fire
  • Weapon of Choice: Fireseal/Fuuenken
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: People With Baggage, Cauterizing and Cutting All at Once, Stoicism, Good Sentiments Hidden by Bad Words, Being Strong, Yet Smart, Standing in for the Creator
  • Domains: War, Freedom, Vengeance, Fire
  • High Priest: Balsa
  • Allies: Vash, Seras Victoria, Kenshin Himura, Dizzy, Hanzo Hasashi/Scorpion, Ichigo Momomiya (she steps in if there's any trouble pertaining to his other station), Yuji Sakai, William "B.J." Blascovicz, Booker DeWitt, Ragna the Bloodedge, Ryuko Matoi, Jotaro Kujo, Hakumen, Siegfried Schtauffen, Cecil Harvey, Human Torch, Alucard, Captain America, Yuri Lowell, Raiden (the Mortal Kombat one), Kung Jin, Ajani Goldmane, Rio
  • Rivals: Ky Kiske (now friendly, after the events of Overture), Jin Kisaragi
  • Enemies: I-No, Justice, The Millennium, Wilhelm "Deathstead" Strasse, Light Yagami, Nui Harime, Shinnok
  • All of his followers are too busy going out, righting their wrongs. They just sign in at his temple, then leave.
  • Speaks to other gods sparingly (often disparagingly), but holds Kenshin, Vash an Zuko in decent regard as fellow atoners (though he'd never say it to their faces). Openly dislikes Light Yagami for his utopian tendencies.
  • Is pestered almost constantly by Dante Sparda and Kenpachi Zaraki for a fight. After the mess with GI Guy, Sol finally did respond to the two of them, engaging in a chaotic melee that set the chosen arena aflame, cut it into pieces, then scattered those pieces far and wide. Domon Kasshu and Kamina were rather impressed.
  • Was briefly considered to be in the running for God of Fire, but after seeing Shigekuni Yamamoto-Genryusai in action, he turned around and walked away, muttering to himself. Even after Yamamoto's "death", and the ascension of the Human Torch, the position didn't even come to Sol's mind; what he has to deal with is a bigger issue. One has to wonder if he gave up on it, or considered the whole debate irrelevant; with him, the latter seems extremely likely.
  • Has good taste in music, being a fan of Freddie Mercury and Queen. One of Sol's prized possessions from his era is their Sheer Heart Attack album.
  • He's lately been seen smirking and cracking his neck while grinning. All that's left for the clue is "About damn time..."
  • Is often seen with Jotaro Kujo, for various reasons. Though, Jotaro himself feels kinda uneasy since Sol sounds kinda like the guy he loathes the most.
  • After hearing Ragna's fate, Sol has wondered if maybe he should be the one putting an end to him if the time comes... because he doesn't trust Jin enough. This put the two at odds.
    • He's forced to pull back his words when he realized that his Dragon Install can make him more draconic and demonic the same way like Ragna, and as of recent, it's gotten more often.
    • As if fate itself had decided though, he has recently been chosen by Wiz and Boomstick to fight a Death Battle with Ragna. Time will tell if he can indeed live up to his words.
      • However, Sol is one of the people who suggests that they shouldn't just pick Ragna at his current condition, as even Sol finds fighting someone at that state completely insulting. Thankfully, the Pantheon has an alternate solution: use Time Travel to yank an 'alternate' Ragna when he's at his peak, and shit hasn't hit the fan. Sol smirked as he cracked both his knuckles and lightly on the neck, ready for battle.
      • Once the fight actually happened, the judges were surprised how evenly Sol and Ragna ended up going against eachother, all things considered. However, something about the Ragna that was used seemed to had been "faulty", as he transformed into Black Beast fully after Sol only did one significant stab at him, forcing Sol to activate full Gear mode to kill the Black Beast in one shot before anything worse would happen. Even so, Sol was slightly annoyed to hear Boomstick claim that he won because he had 18 belts to Ragna's four.
  • Unlike Ragna, when it comes to being in Scorpion's house, Sol seems to get along well with the undead ninja.
  • He would really prefer you to not to think too hard about his current family situation. Namely, that he's Dizzy's father and therefore technically he's Ky's father-in-law. That's perhaps one reason why he's very annoyed at the many different suitors Dizzy's getting due to her popularity.

    Torin/Kyoryu Silver I 
Torin, God Who Defected From Evil (Wise God Torin, Kyoryu Silver I, Tori [when in a human disguise])
Kyoryu Silver 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A yellow triangle with the symbol of Bragigas inside it
  • Theme Song: "Senkou no Brave"
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Weapon of Choice: The Giga Gaburevolver
  • Portfolio: Being bravery incarnate, Kicking ass due to being the eldest, originally a harbinger of destruction before turning good, those originally deemed as a failure due to horrible events in his past, protecting his fellow warriors, the Feather Blade, epic baritone ass-kickers with epic fingersaps
  • Domains: Bravery, Good, Dinosaurs
  • Follower: Dantetsu Kiryu/Kyoryu Silver II (his successor)
  • Allies: All Ascended Toku Heroes (especially the Kyoryugers), Cosmos, Pathurnax, Raspberyl, Artix von Krieger, The ToQgers, all good-aligned Dinosaurs.
  • Enemies: All Ascended Toku Villains
  • Mentor to: Mitsuzane Kureshima
  • Worthy Opponent: Dante, Sephiroth
  • Originally the High Priest to Pathurnax, Torin eventually made his way to the House of Heroes after becoming Kyoryu Silver and thus embodying bravery himself. This was met with rejoicing from his fellow Kyoryugers, glad to see their mentor free of his past failures and becoming a Kyoryuger in his own right.
  • Has a strange rivalry with Dante due to them having the same voice, but also due to Torin originally being a creation of Deboth himself. What followed after their first meeting were the two flying throughout the House of Combat, Dante with Ebony & Ivory, Torin with his Giga Gaburevolver, shooting each other to oblivion and then an epic sword clash that ended with Torin's Trinity Strazer cutting the House of Combat in half. After that, Dante laughed, shook hands with Torin and suggested that they'd go for pizza (his treat). Torin agreed.
    • Also got into a fight with Sephiroth, once again due to their voices. The two had an epic sword clash in their basic forms, until Sephiroth decided to go One-Winged Angel. Torin fought back as Kyoryu Silver and summoned the GigaBragioh to fight to a standstill. After the dust settled, Sephiroth considered him a Worthy Opponent.
  • Despite his appearance, Torin actually has a humorous side. He's shown to have a curiosity for shoujo manga and monster movies when not on the job. And when it comes to those who use Fartillery, he can be heard saying that they must "bravely let one rip". Many gods are shocked that he would say that (and in that baritone voice of his too!)
  • As he changed to good by seeing the goodness in dinosaurs (and was absolute hit with remorse when they died off), he has been seen interacting with many of the dinos who are on the side of good.
  • With Mitsuzane defecting from evil, Torin has decided to bring the Kamen Rider under his wing. This was helpful in the "Tarot Crusaders" incident when 1) Mitsuzane had to fight off against a brainwashed Kamen Rider Meteor and Zangetsu, and 2) Torin had to fight off the brainwashed Kyoryugers.
  • Gods in the House of Life and Death were impressed with his Batman Gambit at the end of the series: having his successor killed him while Torin had a heart of justice within him, so that when he went to Hell he would kill every single Deboth monster in it and weaken the army that he defected from. Hades keeps a close eye on him now.
  • If given illusion magic, he sometimes appears as a handsome man in a white suit, blue shirt and red tie with a matching hat. He calls himself "Tori".
  • Apparently has a "cousin" of sorts named Xenowing. Due to arriving so much later in his series, Xenowing is much less "interesting" and not even eligible for this post.

Lesser Gods

    Claire Bennet 
Claire Bennet, Goddess of People Who, Oddly, Don't Want Superpowers (Claire-Bear, Claire G. Petrelli, Vivian Lewis, Claire Butler, Bonnie Monaco, Alice Shaw)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A Cell
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Trying to Live a Normal Life, Female Chick Magnet, Attracting Fatal Accidents, Not Afraid of the Grim Reaper, Becoming a Really Fearsome Woman Later On, Nice Girls You Shouldn't Anger
  • Domain: Healing, Good
  • High Priestess: Daphne Powell
  • Allies: Kim Possible, Juliet Starling, Buffy Summers, Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott
  • Enemies: Libby Chessler, Jason Voorhees, Slade Wilson/Deathstroke
  • Opposes: Erik Lensherr/Magneto, Scott Summers/Cyclops
  • Annoyed by: Veigue Lungberg
  • Fears: Lucy
  • Odd Friendship with: Wade Wilson/Deadpool
  • Despite not wanting superpowers and that being reason why she ascended in the first place, she doesn't seem to mind being a goddess. Was the subject of a manhunt from evil forces to use her abilities for their own gain. She has long gotten past that stage of her life
    • Her story in the mortal world ended with a massive explosion that killed hundreds of people. Although she survived the blast, she was pronounced dead after giving birth to twins. Further research revealed that one of them could siphon powers, which happened at a horrible time for her.
  • Is glad to have a number of benevolent cheerleading gods in the Pantheon, sponsoring many of the recent ones that has ascended:
    • Buffy has been a long time friend of Claire. Not surprising as the two girls share their grievances with their duties. Claire usually manages to get Buffy back up and face her responsibilities.
    • Along with Buffy, she tried to get either Kim Possible or Juliet Starling for the title of Divine Cheerleader. When that failed, she and Buffy helped find titles for both characters. Juliet and Kim were highly grateful for their assistance.
    • The reason the exchange failed was due to the workings of Libby Chessler, who successfully vouched for a cheerleader more in line with her personality. She detested her from the start as her followers often took the brunt of bullying from Libby's, but that only caused Claire to hate her even more.
  • Even after Magneto made a Heel–Face Turn, Claire stands to oppose him. Why? Because she gets irritated by people who want to force people to choose sides, when many just don't have a strong enough opinion to do so. The same goes to Cyclops in his later years. She is particularly disdainful of such crises that has been recently affecting superheroes.
    • Of course many give her flack for being a hypocrite, pointing out that she was the one that revealed the existence of evolved humans to her world. In her defense, those were under unique circumstances.
  • There was a time where she would always here someone shouting her name in the House of Quirks. It got to the point where she stormed into the temple to give the man a piece of her mind. Veigue Lungberg perked up, thinking it was her long lost girlfriend returning. Instead, he found an angry blonde girl shouting at him for saying her name one too many times. He apologized, promising not to say her name as often.
  • While she was on her way back to her temple, she was grabbed from behind and brutally stabbed multiple times. Thankfully, her powers allowed her to heal from that ordeal rather quickly. She ignored the circumstances and moved on... only for the same thing to happen the very next day. That's when she went to the House of Knowledge to help investigate. Some sleuthing concluded that she is being stalked by Jason Voorhees. It's likely that he considers her to be a Final Girl, an archetype he vehemently hates. The best way to solve this was to get the help from Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott and their various followers. After some tips, Claire managed to turn the tables on her opponent, leading him right to a firing squad headed by Judge Dredd. Jason's body was destroyed, though it's likely he will appear once more. After thanking the girls, she offered to sleep over at their house for the night. And thus a wonderful friendship was born.
  • Stays as far away from Lucy's temple as possible, given that one of her most prominent followers hunted her down for years, hoping to steal her powers. He succeeded, though he later had a change of heart.
  • Once found herself in the middle of a fight between Deadpool and Deathstroke. Meaning, her body was skewered in half by a sword slash from Deathstroke when Deadpool got out of the way, even though it didn't even get to half her torso. She ended up growing her lower half back in about 20 minutes, at which point Deathstroke realized she was one of the targets he signed a contract on. Deadpool seemed to recognize her too and decided to defend her, and then she stepped in to help the Merc with a Mouth, so Slade decided to fall back for the time being. And then DP said this.
    Deadpool: Okay, I know we healing factor types tend to get injured, our parts cut off, and all that stuff a lot more often than the normies do, but your body is just ridiculously weak. That thing didn't go through enough of you to take you apart like that. What gives?

    Harry Mason 
Harrold "Harry" Mason, God of Determination To Find One's Loved Ones (Harold, the Hermit)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A pipe and his brown jacket
  • Theme Song: Silent Hill
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Traversed Silent Hill to find his daughter, Action Survivor, Determinator, Badass Bookworm, Badass Normal, Badass Unintentional, Papa Wolf, Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome
  • Domain(s): Searches for Loved Ones, Determination
  • High Priest: Rose Da Silva
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Silent Hill, The Child Abuse Supporters, 456 Ambassador, The Gatherers
  • An ordinary non-fiction writer, Harry Mason lost his wife Jodie early in their marriage and devoted his life to raising his adopted daughter Cheryl. While driving to Silent Hill, Harry swerved to avoid a girl standing in the road and crashed his car. When he regained consciousness, Harry found that Cheryl had gone missing. Making his way through Silent Hill, uncovering the town's secrets and fighting against various monsters and the Order, the town's cult, Harry eventually escaped Silent Hill with his life and with a baby created from Alessa and Cheryl's re-merged souls, whom he renamed Heather. However, 17 years after escaping from Silent Hill, Harry was killed in his home by a monster sent by the Order in revenge for having previously foiled their plans. Heather would later avenge his death and give him a proper burial.
  • Harry originally ascended into the pantheon as a follower of James Sunderland, which he did in order to have his back in case anything happened. When the gods learned of how Harry's courage and determination to find his daughter allowed him to triumph over the horrors of Silent Hill, they deemed him worthy of becoming a god within the pantheon.
  • The first thing Harry did after ascending was visit Heather, the two embraced in a tearful reunion.
  • After spending some time thinking about it, Harry chose to appoint Rose Da Silva as his High Priestess. The fact that she was his Distaff Counterpart from an alternate reality convinced him that she was the ideal choice. After getting over her initial confusion caused by the fact that her husband, Christopher, had used the name "Harry Mason" as an alias, Rose gladly accepted the position.
  • Harry frequently hangs out with the Redfield siblings and Leon Kennedy, having bonded over their shared experiences of having survived horrific environments and monsters. They even offered to properly train Harry in how to use firearms in order to improve his poor aim.
  • He gets along well with Pegasus Seiya due to the latter's resolve to protect his friends and find his sister. However, Harry was quick to chastise him for losing track of his motivation and not finding his sister sooner.
  • Being a fan of detective/mystery novels, Harry enjoys spending time with Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, frequently asking to accompany them on their cases.
  • He generally avoids the House of Extraterrestrials due to having learned of an alternate universe in which he had been abducted by aliens. Although the existence of at least one timeline in which the aliens had helped him obliterate Silent Hill has made him somewhat more accepting of at least occassionally visiting it.

    Minsc and Boo 
Minsc and Boo, Gods of Evil-Butt-Kicking For Justice

Orisa, Goddess of Protection Oaths (OR15, Protector of Numbani)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Supercharger
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Adorkable, Arm Cannon, Badass Adorable, Exotic Eye Designs, Gravity Master, Immune to Flinching, Literal-Minded, Created to defeat Doomfist, Robotic Centaur, Stone Wall
  • Domains: Protection, Shields, Omnics, Gravity, Heroism
  • Herald: Efi Oladele (Her creator)
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Doomfist, Null Sector, Reaper, Widowmaker, Sombra, Junkrat and Roadhog, Ultron, Sigma, Triborg, Omega
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Torbjörn Lindholm, Zarya (One sided on their part)
  • Created with the purpose of being the Protector of Numbani, Orisa seeks to keep everyone she cares about protected and was designed in mind as a counter to Doomfist who, before she was created, destroyed the OR15 defense robots and reclaimed his gauntlet. While still young, Orisa is determined to keep Numbani safe from any harm.
  • Initially she was confused about the pantheon, but eventually got used to it. Orisa considers joining the House of Defense because of her job as a robotic guardian and also to get some training to the eventual day that she has to face Doomfist.
  • Sometimes allow her creator Efi Oladele to tag along with her in the pantheon, since she thinks this place would be to her liking. Efi sometimes has her workshop available on Orisa's temple and sometimes likes to repair badly damaged robots or gadget for whoever needs it.
  • Is actually 1 month old but doesn't look the part. Mentally, although very smart, she is still a bit childish and naive. And since her creator is a Child Prodigy, she is basically a big child with a gun, unless she is in combat.
  • Sometimes compared to Baymax given their similar personalities, although their roles are very different. Seems like the two get along well with each other since Baymax complements her very well since she often gets badly damaged during combat.
  • Being a Multil-purpose machine, Orisa seems to get along well with Megaman and Jenny because of their shared similarities. Jenny sort of acts as Orisa's Cool Big Sis since she is still a newbie, although she doesn't look the part.
  • Nobody is sure what type of creature Orisa is supposed to represent, but the closest thing related to her is a Centaur. She seems to get along with some of the ascended ones, one special mention is Centorea, who is also very heroic and protective of her master.
  • Like with Zenyatta before, Ultron has tried to convince her that Humanity does not deserve her as a protector and that Numbani is just a aberration of nature. Orisa simply decided to ignore, with warning him that if he threatened to destroy her city, he would have to personally deal with her.
  • Will sometimes ask anyone who feels gloomy if they need a hug. It's likely that Orisa was programmed that way in case someone felt sad.
  • Her relationship with Torbjörn and Zarya is a little complicated. She herself has no issue with them, but the former seems to be indirectly involved in her creation while the latter has been a source of inspiration for Orisa in how to use her gravity charge by watching her, a thing that Zarya personally doesn't care.
  • Orisa is strong enough to withstand most attacks directed at her, even becoming borderline invulnerable while using her Fortify ability. However, when it comes to cars, she sometimes succeeds in stopping them, other times not so much.
  • "Your safety is my primary concern"
