This particular sub house is a quite difficult to describe due to having to fit the inhuman needs of it's residents, it often drives mortals insane. It serves as something of a Prison Dimension for the more evil residents (which connects it to the Phantom Zone and House of Justice) while more good aligned residents are given more freedom.

  • Allies:

  • Enemies:
  • Complicated Relationships: Garrosh Hellscream (Y'Shaarj)
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Each other, Doctor Boom
  • Opposed by: The House of Undead and Most of the Gods in Life and Death
  • The old gods were creatures who come from the void with the mission of corrupting the world of Azeroth, tampering with the creations of the Titans in the process, which eventually sparked a war that left 3 of them imprisoned and one dead. Since then, their corruption spread to whenever they reside and they are still planning to destroy everything for the sake of Chaos. This creatures were found in the pantheon once and it took the entire effort of the GUAG aided by the four dragon aspects (Including Malygos) to imprison them. It is generally advised to avoid visiting them as no one returns fully well from an Old God's corruption.
  • After hearing about these ungodly abominations, The Hunter decided to end their lifes for good. However, when they were about to enter the Gods temple, they were immediately confronted by Deathwing and they were forced to retreat as he wasn't a match for the Death Aspect. They had never anticipated that the dragon was one of the biggest pawns of the Old Gods.
    • Besides Deathwing, Ragnaros also decided to serve his old masters once again which alarmed many people in the Pantheon, since they weren't aware the elemental lord used to serve the old Gods. This has made the GUAG to gather enough forces just in case these creatures decided to strike the Pantheon again.
    • When Cho'Gall heard that the Old Gods had acended, he was very quick to start visiting their temples, as he is already too corrupt to suffer any ill affects. He has been noted to favor C'Thun, though he makes an effort to visit each temple once a day.
  • It is forbidden in its ENTIRETY to ever try to kill any of the Old Gods, as killing them would leave nasty consequences in the pantheon AND given the nature of the Pantheon regarding Death, then the Old Ones could potentially regain all the power thay lost after their resurrection
  • They are also reffered as "The Elder Gods" which caught Raiden by surprise, since he didn't expect to find his masters ascended. When he found out who these Elder Gods were about, he was horrified of the damage they had caused and refuses to compare these Eldritch creatures with his Homeworld's Elder Gods.
  • Their objective is simple, corrupt every place of the pantheon and cause unending chaos forever. That's the reason why the are always compered to the Chaos Gods as their objectives are similar and plus, they are also Eldritch Abominations. It was no surprise when both camps joined forces to put in motion a plan to corrupt the entire pantheon.
  • The elder gods have also taken interest in learning about their counterparts of Yharnam, The Great Old Ones. While both groups communicate without issue at all, the latter have been hesitant to collaborate with the Old Gods. Of course they don't mind at the moment, but later down the road the Old Gods have considered Brainwashing these creatures into submission when the time comes
  • They found common ground with the Elder Dragons of Tyria, since they share the same abilities to warp the surrounding they inhabit and also feed on magic. However, none of the dragons are interesting on serving the Elder Gods but there is still a rivalry going with both groups.
  • They also seems to get along with fellow lovecraftian deities given their similarities. Remarkably, C'Thun seems to get along with Cthulhu while Yogg-Saron has formed an alliance with Yogg-sothoth for very particular reasons.
  • Rumors say that their influence has been lingering around a peaceful tavern where various people from Azeroth gather to relax. While their plans are not very clear at the moment, they have already "corrupted" many of its frequent visitors, much to the shock of various deities.
    • However, many breath a sigh of relieve when they discovered that when the Old Gods visit this place, they're the ones that are under the control of the heroes that reside there: Jaina, Malfurion, Alleria, Uther, Valeera, Garrosh, Gul'dan, Rexxar and Thrall.
  • Discord once tried to befriend them what with them being gods of chaos. But was horrified when he found out that their brand of chaos was endless death and destruction rather than the odd and wacky and thus became enemies. Solidified by Yogg-Saron calling Discord's brand of chaos childish and amateurish.
  • Exclusive to C'Thun:
    • Ever since his defeat against the Titans, C'thun has been kept imprisoned beneath Azeroth in one of their research facilities, in what would later become the continent of Kalimdor. He did return once but eventually he was defeated by a group of adventurers, which is no easy task for any mortal. His eventual ascension would allow him to get in motion a plan to drive to insanity many potentially useful gods to use as Pawns.
    • His appearance mostly consist as a giant eye surrounded by many tentacles. This made him be approached by another abomination by the name of Monoculus, which happen to be a floating eye that misteriously seems to speak a similar language that C'thun understands.
      • Another deity he has allied himself with was Sauron, given that his Eye form is very similar to C'thun's default form
    • Given that he had a race of insectoid creatures as pawns, whose names are the aquir and Quiraji, The old one was able to make an alliance with Queen Sectonia, given that she has similarities with said creatures that used to serve him. This didn't sit well on kirby but he is careful to approach this alliance since the Elder Gods are not creatures that he thinks he could take by himself.
    • Has a devoted cult by the name of The Twilight Hammer that are really loyal to him and his brethen (but most importantly, him). This in turn made the House of FAITH very careful if it happened that some members were already among them
    • A special rule he made for becoming a disciple of him is to shout his name three times.
    "C'Thun, C'THUN, C'THUN!"
  • Exclusive to Yogg-Saron:
    • Yogg-Saron is known as one of the most malevolent of the Elder Gods. He was imprisoned in the depths of the city of Ulduar and the titans assigned specific watchers to keep an eye on him. While his situation in the Pantheon is no different to how it was in Azeroth, it should be said that his powers are able to drive almost anyone dumb enough to get near him insane. As a matter of fact, all of his guardians ended up succumbing to him.
    • There has been rumors that whispers can be heard near his temple, which is not a good sign mind you, as he could easily Mind Rape anyone close to his range and make you his slave. It is possible to fight his influence but is not advised in the slightest.
    • It is said that Yogg-Saron is very closely related to the creature known as Hastur, since they both share the moniker of "The Unspeakable one". While Hastur isn't found in the Pantheon at the moment, Old Man Henderson has tried to take down Yogg-Saron thinking he is a possible reincarnation of Hastur. So far Henderson has been unsuccessful, since he cannot get past Deathwing and is getting increasingly annoyed by the black dragon.
    • Yogg-Saron is also known as "The God of Death" given how he feeds of the essence of the Undead and Death itself. That's why the House of Life and Death struggles to fend him off in hopes that he doesn't corrupt the house or else the nature of Death in the Pantheon could really be corrupted by his mere presence. Undead gods also stay far away of the Elder God's reach.
      • However, he found himself a fierce opposition from other Grim Reapers just to keep the natural balance of death intact. Others, like Death the Horseman, are only interested in observing the creatures powers.
    • He also has control over the N'raqui, also known as the Faceless Ones, humanoid creatures that resembles squids. They have been under conflict with the Scourge given that they are closely located to the old city of Azjol'Nerub, where the nerubians hail from. Yogg-Saron has only limited himself to taunt the Lich King of his eventual fate and said that his forces will eventually succumb to his corruption.
    Yogg-Saron: No King rules forever...
    • Has an incredible control over magic, so powerful he might turn a recently cast spell into anything he desires. However, his insanity prevents him from focusing on a single target, prefering to rain destruction all around him, even to the point of harming himself.
      • Given his random nature, he became best buds with the RNG.
    • "Bow down before the God of Death".
  • Exclusive to N'Zoth:
    • N'Zoth happens to be the entity behind Neltharion's corruption and eventual descent into madness, which later transformed him into Deathwing. Rumors say that he inhabits the depths of the Oceans of Azeroth.
    • N'Zoths whole motivations, while similar to the rest of the Elder Ones, are a complete mystery to everyone. He happens to be one of the few ascendants that no one has ever saw in person. That doesn't mean that his presence is not there and it is said that he can be heard whispering in either the House of Water & Moisture or Aquatic Life but no one is certain if he is there.
      • Until a expedition led by Aquaman was made in order to investigate said whispers. To his horror, what they found was the real N'Zoth, who was about to transform both houses into his domain. A collective effort from all the members of said houses plus an assistance from the GUAG was enough to force The Corruptor to flee, but he has since relocated with his fellow Old Gods.
    • He doesn't get particularly well with his brethren. Nobody knows why but he has waged war with both C'Thun and Yogg-Saron and their relationship has not improved in the slightest. The most common explanation is that their twisted minds make them confront each other just for their depraved entertainment.
    • N'Zoth was one of the principal sources of corruption in the Emerald Dream and many fear that he may be able to dwell into the dreams of people too. That's why he enlisted various entities related to Nightmare, such as Atropos or Freddy Krueger.
    • He once tried to Mind Rape Darkrai into submission since he saw potential in his nightmare inducing abilities. However, Ysera was quick to intercept before he took control and saved Darkrai from his clutches.
      • As a result, Ysera has created a group specialized in countering N'Zoth and his Dream Corruption. So far, Brightwing, Darkrai, NiGHTS and Soldier #25954 have joined her cause. Malfurion and Tyrande have also considered lending a hand in case the Emerald Dream is in danger.
    • "I taste the essence of your soul".
  • Exclusive to Y'Shaarj:
    • Y'Shaarj was the most powerful and wicked of the Old Gods and thus, the Titans were forced to put an end to his life. With the last of his forces, he was able to create the Sha, a race of creatures that represent the bad emotions of the world and eternally cursed Pandaria with their presence.
    • Given that Y'Shaarj was Killed Off for Real and his essence dissapeared entirely from his homeworld, his presence in the pantheon is difficult to pin point, since he seems to be torn in and out of the space and time of these lands. It still doesn't negate his powers and as such he has employed the mantids to figure a way to make him materialize in this plane.
      • Luckily for him (and unfortunately for the rest of the pantheon), his remains were able to be restored. Nobody is sure how he was able to be revived since the House of Life and Death made themeselves sure to not let him return to the mortal plane. It's theorized that Nefarian is behind his revival, given the Dragon's own mysterious revival as well.
    • As stated earlier, he is in control of the mantids, a race of insectoid creatures that inhabit Pandaria and have been in constant war with the local Pandaren. However, there seems to be one particular Mantid that refuses to serve him and that would be Scyther. He has been trying to control the Pokemon with little result so far.
    • Has kind of a strained relationship with Garrosh Hellscream, given that he is responsible for his death after the orc's defeat in Orgrimmar. However, he has offered him an alliance in case he wants to taste the power of Y'Shaarj once more.
    • The Emotions are horrified that Y'Shaarj basically created the Sha, an Evil Counterpart of them after his demise. He however does not care about their opinion and has an interest in corrupting the emotions to do his bidding, which could have catastrophic results.
    • There is also a Hidden group of Sha that he personally released on the internet. The infection was so great that many pages had fallen pray to it and not even this is safe from... {◕ ◡ ◕}
    • "Gorge your hatred, embrace your rage"
  • They are also present in the House of Travel

Dark Gaia, God of Downplayed Cosmic Horrors (Perfect Dark Gaia)

  • Greater God (ranges through Demigod and Quasdieties through it's split parts)
  • Symbol: A single pool of darkness.
  • Theme: Boss- Dark Gaia Phase 1
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Weird Creatures, Splitting Into Different Monsters, Dark Is Evil, Lovecraft Lite, Eldritch Abominations, Demonic Possession, Eye Scream, Evil Versions of Good Beings, Complete Immortality, The Heartless
  • Domains: Darkness, Destruction, Night, Earth
  • Allies: Nekron and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, The Lich, Deathwing, the Firebird, Lavos, Mephiles The Dark, Dharkon, Majin Buu, Giygas
  • Enemies: Pretty much everyone who doesn't want the world to be destroyed. More specifically? Sonic and Eggman, all other Sonic the Hedgehog deities, Xerneas, Gaea, Captain Planet, the Nature Preservers, Galeem, Eliphas, Ezalor, Sora, Amaterasu, Babidi, Steve?, The Weather Trio
  • A primordial force of destruction and darkness, who makes once a while to destroy the world and Light Gaia to recreate it. It was recently found out that this being is currently underneath the entire pantheon, resting. As soon as everyone found out, it proceeded to wake up and began destroying everything in it's path. It was later defeated by a combination of Super Sonic, Steve? and Xerneas.
  • Dark Gaia's primal destruction and being barely sentient status makes it an enemy of most of the pantheon, but a popular brute for the Grand United Alliance of Destruction. The Lich has a noticable understanding of Dark Gaia, as its almost Almighty Idiot status of discord and destruction makes it similar to his teacher, GOLB. He believes that it is a lost spawn of GOLB, having manifested itself in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe.
  • Found itself an ally with Giygas, as much as such entities can even have allies. They are corruptive forces of destruction, topped off with being practically mindless. There was a similar opinion on Lavos, who also has the bonus of being buried deep in the Earth for eons like Dark Gaia. And it found a similar being of natural, bestial destruction in the form of the Firebird.
  • The Weather Trio absolutely hate this thing. They are rather chaotic and primal forces of the Earth and nature, with Kyogre and Groudon's squabbling having risked the stability of the whole world. But they would never try to destroy the world, and consider Dark Gaia an aberration. As Rayquaza's entire deal is preventing such forces of chaotic nature from ruining the world, it immediately confronted the beast.
  • Some parts of the pantheon and even some quasdeities have been mutated by Dark Gaia, and most are trying to reverse what it has done. It has shown the ability to possess beings through it's army, which has caused trouble through the pantheon. Its dark presence brings anger, sorrow and despair. Emperor Palpatine was very interested in this, believing Dark Gaia could be used as a means of empower his connection to the Dark Side and influence over other people.
  • Gaea HATES Dark Gaia. Hates that such a monstrous force of death and destruction would have "Gaia" in its name. Hates that such a monstrous force of death and destruction slumbers within the bowels of the planet she embodies. She honestly believed Gohma Vlitra had reincarnated itself back into the pantheon. Naturally, such a force is a dire foe of the Nature Preservers.
  • It felt a commonality with Cthulhu as they are both ancient, unfathomable beings who will awake to bring armageddon when the time comes. That commonality was stronger with Majin Buu, a sealed away evil with the explicit desire of the destruction of everything and fools who think they can control the power they unlock. Such as Babidi, who clearly didn't learn his lesson when he tried the same trick a second time.
  • A foe of all who side with the light, due to its nature as a monstrous force of darkness. Particularly powerful forces of light and order such as Amaterasu, Eliphas and Ezalor prove rather troubling for it. Werewolves are a bit more curious about Dark Gaia, given how its influence turned Sonic into the Werehog. For that matter, those who prove Dark Is Not Evil are not fond of it. Even most evil deities like Chernabog don't see much usefulness in the being. While Don Thousand has some appreciation for its dark, chaotic nature and how it spreads this, the creature is too mindless and focused on being an Omnicidal Maniac for him to side with.
  • This primal being sensed much of itself and its eternal rival Light Gaia within the heated rivalry of Galeem and Dharkon. Celestial beings of light and darkness, practically eternal and cosmic forces of destruction and rebirth. However, Galeem is just as malevolent as Dharkon. Not that Galeem liked Dark Gaia, seeing it as like its greatest foe. Dharkon found Dark Gaia a much appealing ally in their shared desire for destruction.
  • The only Sonic deity that seems to tolerate Dark Gaia is Mephiles the Dark. Unsurprising, given he is a being of darkness though originally light whose goals are the end of the world. With Iblis not present in the pantheon, Dark Gaia serves as effective muscle for Mephiles. There has been talk about who is stronger: Dark Gaia or Solaris/Mephiles' original form. It was determined Dark Gaia beats Solaris in raw strength, would lose due to Solaris' extradimensional nature.

  • Enemies: Gwyn, Artorias,The Chosen Undead and The Bearer of The Curse, Ornstein and Smough, Great Grey Wolf Sif, Riku, Sora, Princess Celestia and Luna, Guts, Aqua, Madoka Kaname, the Old Chaos
    • For Alsanna and Karla, the enemies and allies are inverted.
  • The creature known as the Father of the Abyss is the ultimate threat to the First Flame. The blight of the Abyss it carries, if left unchecked, will spread and destroy most life in the Pantheon and twist what is left into loathsome horrors. While it was successfully locked in combat against the flames of the Old Chaos, the real problem (the death of his home world) began when the darkness successfully extinguished the fires of Izalith. Slowly but surely, the darkness reaches for the dying flames...
  • Manus is similar to the Beast in power and mindlessness. It barely has enough conscience to attempt to leave its temple, attack anything nearby and seek Humanity. Other than that, it only seeks its precious shattered amulet. The Chosen Undead holds half of it, and searches are underway to find the other half.
  • Artorias and Ornstein are not allowed to attempt to hunt the horror unsupervised. While their hatred of the creature is absolute and their power is highly welcomed in any fight against it, they bear its taint and both have fallen to it in the past. Artorias in particular still holds much of the monster's power sealed within himself, and should he fall, Manus could reclaim the Abyss.
  • Upon defeat by the Chosen Undead, he was shattered into pieces, which would later resurface to bedevil the Bearer of the Curse.
  • Due to the machinations of Melkor, Manus has largely reformed into a single entity, though many of its component fragments have been granted a sort of independent existence, still as a whole devoted to sundering the First Flame and collapsing everything that is and could be into the darkness of the Abyss.
    • Nashandra has adopted the role of The Dragon and personal courier, her ambitions and goals are very close to her parent's.
    • Elana has promised revenge against both the Chosen Undead and the Bearer of the Curse, and had Sinh restored to continue her depraved work.
    • The Darklurker is now the Guardian of Manus' temple; all invaders must fight this creature before fighting Manus himself.
    • Alsanna shrouds the path to the temple in thick fog and seals the paths in mazes of snow, sleet and ice while making sure the temple's creatures are equally contained inside, honoring her lost Ivory King while at the same time choking the Old Chaos. Manus and her "siblings" are well aware of this, but they hate the Old Chaos too much to care. More so, Alsanna actually sneaks away to meet others, seeking help against her "Father", and so far has bonded with Elsa, Anna, and Weiss Schnee. Those who hear the story about her and her king are often brought to tears.
    • Nadalia still awaits her King in Manus's temple, healing and strengthening its roaming monsters through her idols, in addition to her eternal guardian, Raime the Fume Knight. She has claimed an attraction to Gwyn, still seeking the Soul of the Old Iron King. Gwyn has yet to respond beyond ignoring everyone that brings it up.
  • King Allant seeks to advance or even use Manus' plans, as the deaths of the First Flame and Gwyn will usher in an Age of Dark which shall end the illusion of Hope.
  • The few Magical Girls that dare to try and fight Manus are often overwhelmed by the Dark and are summarily corrupted into Witches. The Sisterhood has thus issued flee-on-sight orders on this thing and forbidden all attempts to hunt it down. The group has already lost too many to dream of fighting this horror; even at its peak victory would have been... expensive.
  • Those who confront the Father of The Abyss will find him like this.
  • Another Fragment has appeared, though unlike her sisters she is content to merely content to teaching those willing to learn sorceries and pyromancies rooted in the Abyss. So that they can use it for good and defeat the evils that her "Father" helped to create.

  • Alignment: True Neutral (Omnicidal Variety) with a lawful edge.

  • Domains: Time, Terraforming, Structure, Mystery, Pattern
  • Alliesnote :
  • Enemies: Those who intrude on Vex territory or get in the way of their goals.
  • Fears: Those who defy fate (yet they still need them)
  • Ever enigmatic and ancient, the Vex are a race of cybernetic Radiolaria time travelers who seek to reshape everything we see in their own image. They are ruthless in their purpose, following actions based on The Pattern and will eliminate anyone who are perceived as a threat in their goals. They turn planets essentially into giant computers with their Mooks reshaping the terrain while the Axis Minds oversee them with different ways and methods depending on the Mind. Examples of the Axis Minds include Sekrion, who was essential in reshaping the entirety of Venus into one that fits the Vex Collective, Atheon oversaw the Vault of Glass and is capable of erasing others from existence, the Undying Mind once sought out to retake the Black Garden and remove it from the flow of time, and Quria Blade Transform was responsible for analyzing Sword Logic and changing based on collected data from that (which may have caused them to be this way, you can thank Oryx's son Crota for that).
  • Deities from several Houses awoke to a peculiar sight: Strange pillars of white lines dotted the area, boxed structures with a distinct age to them have appeared without warning, and structures are materializing out of nowhere. Some deities have reported such incidents beforehand deep within the House, but they were simply brushed off and quickly cleaned up without a regard. This bit them in the back when after a month long investigation to the alien structures research conducted have started disappearing left and right. People then noticed a strange new enterance deep under the House of similar architecture to the others. When attempting to open it, the deities were soon shot at by a large force of machines, the entire House soon following the same fate. Although a surprise, they drove them off but they seemed to have already made their home in the Pantheon, and have no intention of leaving.
  • While their temple was originally the Vault of Glass the Vex swapped it out for a new structure altogether, one specifically designed for the Pantheon although you'll find it's also a mix between the aforementioned Vault of Glass, the Pyramidion, the Citadel, the Black Garden, and more. In the very depths of the House of Technology once you have followed the strange circular structures, past the alien flora growing and thriving near their structures assuming you have evaded the hostile machines and hazardous Radiolarian fluid lies the entrance. Here is where the more major projects take place, and expect to face the Vex at their strongest as they dictate the laws of reality itself. Though it tends to vary, from locking off certain areas of time and space to erasing someone from existence. Regardless, their ontological weaponry is nothing to joke at, and the location hasn't even come close to be fully explored.
    • It's important that you also know that time works differently within their massive temple. A trip inside that took a few hours is almost instant on the outside. This works to their advantage, allowing them to conduct many calculations with their machines to remains steps ahead above others. It doesn't exactly make them omniscient, but looking at how they operate most of the time does give off that feeling. Unless if you can defy fate, then things get a lot more... complex for them.
    • Those who suffered attempts of existence erasure are advised to never confront the likes of Atheon, Panoptes, or any other Axis Minds capable of such feats.
  • Yes, the Radiolarian fluid looks like milk. Go ahead, drink it. It's proven to cause bodily harm, but it can also corrupt whoever makes contact with them aswell. The same goes for their technology, as shown with Kabr and Asher Mir. Sure, their technology is advanced and it can be advantageous to utilize for oneself, but the cons can prove to be devastating and often irreversible. It doesn't stop the likes of opportunistic deities like the Grineer or the Corpus from trying the plunder their secrets. Since the Pyramidion is made to change others into Vex, the ones gunned down could very well be human.
  • Their ambitions are to remake the entire universe which simultaneously kills off everyone that isn't them/assimilates to their collective, and with the events after the recapture of the Last City they've come pretty close simulating such a future onto reality itself. Of course, not many are a fan of being muderer to suit something else's needs and have been barred from many alliances despite the Vex having no intention of joining. First off, they have no sense of good or evil so the GUAG and GUAE are out. Second, their goals of following "the Pattern" can be translated to a lawful goal which of course the GUAC isn't fond of along with the GUAL because they refuse to hear to the Great Will's power in the end. Lastly, while their goals somewhat overlap, they are no allies to the GUAD since they have absolutely no intention of murdering themselves after causing such destruction. Plus, Oryx is an official member, and his Taken almost corrupted them all once.
    • While their fellow members are cautious, they nonetheless are affiliated with the Grand United Alliance of Machines. Though done pragmatically, the Alliance has recognized they can show mercy to machines as opposed to coldly murdering anything that so much as get in their way. It's not a prominent trait, but if the Grox could get in, there's no reason as to why they can too. Plus it's not like they can turn down a species that's strongly affiliated with time itself, it helps fill the limited power they have compared to the other Alliances. They have forseen a group of heroic machines that oppose them along with the GUAM, however, and have worked to try and dismantle them long before they make any moves.
  • It's been discovered that Hobgoblin heads actually make good hatracks. Many deities from the House of Costumes had sought out these Vex, only to receive high-velocity particle jets to the face. Nowadays, they just resort to picking up what's left of their heads after a battle. Though, looking at Vex armor worn by Guardians has piqued their intrest, though the space liches advise that they be careful. It's not like they don't understand where they're coming from, though. It is pretty fashionable.
  • The Vex will worship any deity that they cannot comprehend so long as they get something out of it or they do not cross the Vex in some way. They understand that the Eldritch Abominations here won't be as generous back at their home universe. Although fruitless at first, they did manage to communicate with the Great Ones in an attempt to analyze their power, and become overall better. They seem similar goals of taking power with other deities, like Hyde Kido since his sword can actually erase others from existence. Similarly, they wish to understand the Human Child's power as it contradicts their understanding power, although they know better than confronting them head on. They just need to be patient.
    • They also hold interest in Mementos that Yaldabaoth and the Phantom Thieves use, believing it to be another way to make manifest their Bad Future as well as erase others from existence. All they have to do is evict the current tenants. All they have to do is take analyze it for themselves and things will start falling into place hopefully.
  • Have made many, many enemies in their time within the Pantheon. Falling under as xeno scum that wish to kill everything, they are no friends with the Emperor of Mankind or the Imperium of Man made worse that the Vex are technically Social Darwinists. Master Chief, Doomguy, and Isaac Clarke have also clashed with the machines many times, being complete thorns at their side when trying to further their plans. They also come under fire by the Neuroi and the Daleks, continuously fighting each other for dominance.
    • After nearly being consumed, they have issued to eliminate the likes of the Zerg, the Flood, and the Infested, understanding the threat they pose to their goals. That mistake will not happen again, and they are perfectly willing to use their enemies to destroy any and all attempts at subjugating them.
    • Due to their exploitation of time, they are on the Dahaka's kill list and constantly goes after various Axis Minds. They are one of the few deities they actually consider a threat, shrugging off everything they throw at them. Similar levels involve Chronos and any other protectors of time itself like Chronoa. If they are to remake everything, they would need to be erased.
  • Is also located in Cybernetics & Enhancements.
  • "The Vex have no hope. No imagination, no drive, no fear. All they have is the Pattern. Everything must fit. If it can be made to fit, good. If it can't, it gets cut away."

Intermediate Gods

    Desco 
Death/Extermination Submersible Combat Organism, Goddess of Lovecraftian Cuties (DESCO)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Desco_2_7948.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Octorabbit
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Adorable Little Sister with advanced functionality for World Domination, Lovecraftian Superpowers, Combat Tentacles, Living Weapon capable of magichange, attracted to destructive beings, Third-Person Person, Desu
  • Domains: Bosses, Destruction
  • Allies: Valvatorez, Artina, Axel, Godzilla, H.P. Lovecraft, Ika Musume
  • Master: Gig
  • Enemies: Mao, Aurum
  • Desco appeared before the Pantheon when it was shrouded in darkness, claiming herself to be a vicious creature who will bring the Pantheon into blazing chaos. However, it turned out the darkness was merely a blackout and when the lights were turned back on, what the gods saw was a cute demon girl with a tentacle creature on her back. Taken in by how adorable she was, the gods accepted her into the pantheon as the Goddess of Lovecraftian Cuties. Desco was disappointed that her title was not as terrifying as she hoped it would be, but plans to work her way towards a better title.
    • Desco is at least happy to be amongst the many dreaded and powerful creatures of the House of Otherness. Whenever she is in the house, she can always be seen taking notes and observing the others gods' actions.
  • As she is a member of the Hades Party, Valvatorez and Artina were happy to see her ascend. Fenrich wasn't as pleased not only because of how friendly she is with Val and annoying to him, but because her ascension means that it's only a matter of time before "the Lass" ascends. True to his word, Desco immediately began making plans for her older sister, Fuka Kazamatsuri, to ascend.
  • Has an interesting relationship with Ika Musume. On the one hand, Ika Musume constantly bugs Desco to join her army, believing she and her tentacle creature will be instrumental in her invasion. Desco refuses every single time, saying that she would only join her if it ultimately benefited her Big Sis. On the other hand, because neither of them are taken seriously (as a conqueror and as a Final Boss), they often confide in each other.
  • Desco has a huge crush on Godzilla, who she considers a major hunk. It baffles the minds of many members of the Pantheon.

  • Opposed By: Edward Elric
  • Opposes: ELIZA
  • Ambiguous Pawn: Ragyo Kiryuin.
  • There was a rumor going around the House of Faith about a mysterious nun questioning the purity of other members and telling of a way to grant any wish they desire. After an investigation, Double was discovered in the Pantheon, for no one knows how long. She was then given her own temple, mainly so that she can be kept an eye on.
  • Was absolutely LIVID to hear Eliza made it into the Pantheon. She vowed to make her pay the ultimate price after killing Aeon & Venus, two 3rds of the Trinity she worships.
  • Has shown an interest in the GUAL, as their version of Christianity shares many parallels with her own faith of Trinitism. However, her loyalty to the Skull Heart and her deceptive/destructive nature has earned the ire and distrust of many alliance members.
    • In truth, she is loyal to no faction in particular, going from place to place to fulfill her own agenda. She does mainly reside with [[/Grand United Alliance of Evil The GUAE]], since they are the ones that tolerate her the most.
  • She is able to perfectly mimic he appearance and voices of other gods in the Pantheon. Although she mainly does this to taunt or mock others, she has been spotted trying to convince other gods to take the Skull Heart while disguised.
    • This doesn't apply to just other deities, but food and items as well. She is even able to take the form of pure living Life Fibers, which has attracted the attention of Ragyo Kiryuin.
  • Has earned the hate of Edward Elric, who opposes basically everything Double does, from manipulating others through religion to the very nature of the Skull Heart itself. He pursued her, believing she was another Homunculus created by Father. She denied this claim, but has since then began taking an interest in Father and the ascended Humonculi ever since.
    • One of their confrontations ended up with Double transforming her appearance into his deceased mother with a twisted smile on her face. The conversation did not end well.
  • Is working with Seymour Guado to assist in the genocide of the Pantheon, much to the disdain of Yuna. Double in turn is disappointed in Yuna that she did not continue the cycle of destruction back in her own world.
  • Has been spending an unsettling amount of time lurking around the House of Magic, talking with many of the Magical Girls there about the powers of he Skull Heart. She is ESPECIALLY interested in Madoka ever since the Great Upheaval. Some say that Double left Madoka a "sympathetic gift" in the form of an ominously radiant box...
  • After spending some time with Senator Armstrong, she has picked up a few... interesting policies.
  • Was once accidentally eaten by Kirby while she was the color of Neopilatian Ice Cream.The results of the transformation were so unspeakable, the two are never allowed to be in the same area again.
  • She used to try to tempt Tsubaki Yayoi when she was under the effect of Mind Eater, but she then obtained her new power as Izayoi and sobered up, and now defiantly stands against her. Double has noted Tsubaki as a threat to her own agenda.
  • After hearing about a Power struggle between The Evil Queen and Maleficent, she secretly made both of them an offer; The chance to use the Skull Heart all for themself if they could defeat the other. Double eagerly awaits a response...

  • Allies: SCP-106, Freddy Krueger, Melkor, Pennywise the Clown, Eddie Low, Jack the Ripper, Ramsay Bolton, Oogie Boogie
  • Headbutting Villains with: Winterbolt, Pitch Black
  • Enemies: The SCP Foundation, every single Santa (even Robot Santa Claus), literally every Christmas deity and everyone related to it, Jack Skellington, the entire House of Family, Son Goku, Zim, Dib Membrane, Xerneas, Jack Frost(both of them), Queen Elsa, Tony Tony Chopper
  • SCP-4666. Object Class: Keter. A entity that shows up from the night of December 21-22 to January 1-2 north of 40 degrees latitude, "the Yule Man" acts like a twisted parody of Santa and the Krampus. During a Weissnacht Event he ritualistically tortures and kills families in creatively brutal ways, and kidnaps kids to work in his factory. They work in hellish conditions to make presents out of human body parts, as a macabre take on the holidays. He is equal parts Serial Killer and Humanoid Abomination.
  • Upon his ascension, SCP-4666 soon found himself despised by every single Santa in the pantheon, and every being related to Christmas. And we do mean every, as Robot Santa Claus was repulsed by him. When the Yule Man questioned where he gets to have the moral high ground, he replied that he only acts brutal to the naughty kids, it's just that 99.999% of them are naughty in his eyes. Even then, he wouldn't subject them or his elves to the level of torture the Yule Man is guilty of.
  • Jack Skellington has been spending much of the winter holidays trying to take out SCP-4666, as he does not treat the torture and death of children lying down, nor the perversion of holidays. 4666 pointed out that he messed up Christmas and doesn't have room to talk, though this is only trying to save face as he does not care about how monstrous his take on the holidays is.
  • Has been summarily banned from the House of Craft and Commerce. This is due to his "Weissnacht" gifts for the pantheon involved him crafting stuff from bones, muscles, skin and whatever body parts he can get ahold of, which he was making in Craft and tried to sell in Commerce. The House of Family will shoot him on site for obvious reasons. SCP-4666 has instead produced "gifts" in the House of Torture and Mutilation, along with improving his "craft".
  • Wanted to make a flying reindeer of his own. After mutilating animals and stitching wings didn't work, SCP-4666 decided to go after Xerneas (a fairy deer was "close enough"), and the actual reindeer Tony Tony Chopper. It's better off not knowing what he planned to do with them, though it likely involves using their immortality and healing capabilities to keep his child slaves live longer to work harder. Son Goku proceeded to Instant Transmission and beat the living daylights out of the Yule Man due to his position as champion of Christmas.
  • Zim and Dib recognized SCP-4666 as similar to the rogue Santa Suit of their universe, a Christmas monstrosity. Worrying that it had somehow returned in a new form, they teamed up to stop 4666. Both Jack Frosts and Queen Elsa loathe the Yule Man, who can be seen stalking the House of Ice and Cold.
  • Has attracted the attention of other twisted holiday figures and enemies of said holidays. Oogie Boogie likes the cut of his jib, and how he could help restore Bug Day. Winterbolt and Pitch Black saw a lot of potential, but they are less happy to work with SCP-4666. Winterbolt worries he might get in the way of his rule of the North Pole and the holiday seasons as a fellow Christmas figure, while Pitch Black thinks he's a bit too intense for a full partnership.
  • Melkor seems fond of SCP-4666, since the entity perverts everything about Santa, The Krampus and Christmas to a truly wicked and nightmarish level. Freddy Krueger appreciates 4666's twisted sense of style and how he brings fear and pain to so many people. And SCP-106, having already done horrible things in a macabre Halloween, wants to have fun spreading suffering with a fellow SCP. Pennywise was most amused by how he perverts something innocent much like himself, and how they like eating kids.
  • Unfortunately, SCP-4666 has been seen giving out his grotesque gifts to various, truly malevolent deities in the House of Crime. Eddie Low loved the present of a mutilated, stitched corpse that was meant to be a life-sized doll. It seems to like how Jack the Ripper systematically tears apart his victims, and Ramsay Bolton has gotten some terrible ideas on how to celebrate Christmas from the Yule Man.
