  • Annoyed by: Rorschach, Kenji Setou
  • Conflicting Opinion: Queen Maeve, Lilith (both of them)
  • Special Relationship: The Greek Gods
  • Lauren Freed was born during the early 1970s and grew up to be an ordinary and undistinguished woman. When she was about 18, she discovered that her boyfriend was cheating on her, which destroyed their relationship and resulted in him kicking her out of his house. Left with only a ticket to Paris and nowhere else to go, Lauren went to Paris. While drifting in Paris, Lauren saw the Winged Victory at the Louvre. The statue inspired her and gave her a vision. By the next day, she left for Samothrace, looking for a specific ruin she had seen in her dream. In Samothrace, Lauren was contacted by the self-styled Council of Nike, a secret global, all-women movement with telepathic powers allowing them to organise. By this point, the Council had found a way to tap a small part of the psychic energy of all women in to a vessel. The Council members being successful in business, academia and other spheres, chose to use this extra energy to empower Lauren astheira champion who could defend and help all women.
    • Lauren returned to the US, and started her work in Astro City. Feeling a keen sense of mission, she was a vocal and passionate spokeswoman for the political, legal and social emancipation of women. She ran an impressive activist network which centered on education and providing relief for distressed women. She originally set up 14 conventional shelters for abused women, but by 1996 these were turned into schools. After that, only the staff lived on site, and the schools offered free education for women, starting with self-defense classes to build up confidence. During the 2000s, she overhauled the network again to have combined shelters and schools, on a larger scale and with better security.
    • Although initially an independently operating heroine, eschewing membership in high-profile superhero teams like the Honor Guard as being incompatible with her mission, eventually Winged Victory did join the Honor Guard, and has been one of their mainstays for years since. In 1996, friends of Winged Victory among the Honor Guard strong-armed her into having a date with the Samaritan, as the two had shared a silent attraction for years but were unable to act on it due to both of them being almost constantly busy. Though the Samaritan accidentally hit a nerve when discussing their secret identities, the date was a success. It eventually gave birth to a relationship, albeit a slow-moving one, since the pair still worked almost 24/7.
    • In 2014, Karnazon, one of her arch-enemies, launched yet another plan against Winged Victory. This one was particularly cunning, and his disinformation made it credible that the shelters and schools had been a disguised cult all along, training criminals and terrorists. During this time, the Council of Nike, which was primarily made up of older women, felt that her increased association with the Honor Guard and Samaritan was diluting her effectiveness as a symbol of female independence and they considered removing her powers. After the Confessor and Samaritan helped her foil Karnazon's conspiracy and apprehend him before all her work could be reduced to ashes, Winged Victory reaffirmed that her association with males wasn't harming the cause. Despite the ample and inevitable grumbling from the traditionalists, the Council renewed its confidence in Winged Victory. Reenergised, she returned to her super-heroic role and ran damage control PR after the Karnazon crisis. She also felt confident enough to occasionally resume being Lauren Freed rather than being Winged Victory all the time.
  • Winged Victory ascended into the Pantheon at the request of the Samaritan, partially because he regarded her as an excellent partner to work with, and also because he simply missed her. The two had a brief romantic moment upon their reunion and then quickly got to work.
  • She quickly became allies with Superman, Statesman, Cosmos and the GUAG as a whole, cooperating with them on a regular basis in order to fight crime. Statesman in particular managed to bond with her due to the fact that they're both connected to the Greek Deities.
  • When she heard people comparing her to Wonder Woman, she quickly sought her out. The two got along pretty much immediately and Winged Victory expressed an interest in visiting Themyscira. She also quickly befriended fellow winged warrior woman Hawkgirl, and the two have frequently gone on patrol and teamed up together.
  • She gets along quite well with various female superheroes such as Supergirl, Batgirl, Jean Grey, Storm, Shadowcat, Rogue, X-23, Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel. She managed to befriend the spider-themed superheroines such as Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, Spinnerette and Ladybug, as they remind her of fellow superhero Jack-in-the-Box.
  • Being a Greek-themed heroine, she's on good terms with the Alexandra Sisters, admiring them for their devotion to family. She is somewhat envious of Sophitia for being both a warrior and a mother, whereas Winged Victory barely has a personal life due to being almost constantly working. She serves as something of a mentor for Cassandra, sympathising with her desire to become stronger in order to prevent the original timeline from ever occurring.
  • She was quite happy to encounter feminist career women such as Sarah Jane Smith and Elizabeth "Liz" Lemon. The three of them can sometimes be seen hanging out on the rare occasions that Winged Victory is willing to take a break. She's also mostly supportive of Tenko Chabashira, a girl who has similarly dedicated herself towards protecting girls everywhere. However, she doesn't approve of Tenko's dislike of men and frequently encourages her to be more open minded about them.
  • She understandably strongly dislikes and vehemently opposes rapists and murderers such as Griffith, Wyald, Gregor Clegane and the Brave Companions. She also quickly came to oppose misogynists such as Gregor's master Cersei Lannister and those who have hurt women in the past such as Claude Frollo.
  • She doesn't particularly like either Rorschach or Kenji Setou. Though she sympathises with Rorschach due to his unfortunate upbringing, the fact that he rarely shows respect to women and tends to view them as either untouched innocents or whores beneath contempt has resulted in most of their interactions being rather contentious. On the other hand, she prefers to just ignore Kenji, as he's not a threat to her and his ramblings of her ascension being a confirmation of a feminist conspiracy to kill all men isn't taken even remotely seriously by anyone.
  • She's rather conflicted about Queen Maeve, who was presented in her own world as a feminist icon but was actually an alcoholic hedonist who was apathetic towards the world. However, Winged Victory warmed up to her after learning about the circumstances that led to Maeve becoming like that and how she sacrificed herself by fighting against Homelander in order to allow her teammate Starlight to safely escape. She's similarly conflicted about both versions of Lilith, who could be regarded as feminist figures for wanting to be equal to Adam and share her contempt of misogynists, but also tend to act rather amoral.
  • She felt quite honored to finally meet the Greek Gods in person, though she was a bit disappointed to learn that the goddess Nike had not ascended into the Pantheon. While she generally gets along well with most of them, even managing to tolerate Ares somewhat due to him respecting women, she's understandably quite wary of Zeus due to his reputation.
  • "What we teach women — girls, teenagers, adults — starts with self-defense. But it's the "self" part that's most important. We're about confidence, not hiding."

Intermediate Gods

    Gauron 
Gauron, God of Psychotic Mercenaries
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gauron_profile.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His personal Arm Slave Codarl/Venom.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Ax Crazies, Real Robot Pilots, Terrorists, Psychotic Mercenaries, Pedophilia, Obsessive Love of Violence, Finger Pointing, Berserkers, Infiltration By Surrender, Working Solely For Himself, Absolute Immorality
  • Domains: Air, Chaos, Destruction, Evil, Madness, Metal, Suffering.
  • Heralds: Xia Yu Fan and Xia Yu Lan (his "subordinates").
  • Followers: Archibald Grims and Lubikka Hakkener, Mad Pierrot
  • People He Hasn't Decided To Kill Yet: Black Mage, Luca Blight, Melkor, Slaanesh, Khaled Al-Asad, Ridley
  • Rivals for Kills: Lockdown, Hansel and Gretel, Lobo
  • Opposes: Ali Al-Saachez
  • Opposed by: Sousuke Sagara, Boba Fett, Red Sonja, Imperator Furiosa, Chris Hansen, The Team Fortress mercenaries, the Night Raid, Guts
  • Enemies: Lost count sometime around the moment of his death and ascension
  • Mercenaries serve as the backbone of independent contractors that want a problem taken care of without relying on any one faction. Many are Professional Killers who negotiate their price to enact their business. This temple is not the place for them. This god's followers love the thrill of the kill. Hell, even the price is optional; many see having a legal kill as satisfaction enough. Such is the domain of Gauron, one of the most volatile members of the GUAE.
  • His ranks are full of people willing to backstab each other, either for lust of power or for the sake of it. Gauron managed to keep things together by killing off the most troubling ones to keep the rest in line. The closest he came to losing his position was when he as eventually betrayed by his former high priest Ali Al-Saachez when he thought he wasn't being paid enough. But it would take more than a bullet in the head to take him down. These days, he feels that him and Ali seem to have a little too much in common.
  • Many in the GUAE see him as a double-edged sword. He can be absolutely ruthless to his targets... just as long as he targets the right people. His tendency to kill underlings would give Darth Vader pause. Melkor places him exclusively on the front lines where he works best.
  • Sees the Black Mage as his magical equivalent. They both love to destroy all in their way with just enough respect for the other not to kill one another.
  • If there's anyone who trusts him to do their dirty work, it's Lucas Blight. Though that's due to the fact that Lucas can't do all of his murders alone.
  • Boba Fett has repeatedly stated that he would never would with that maniac again. The toll of his own followers alone was enough to cut all ties with the madman. Being competitive is one thing, but offing their own at random is too much of a risk to take.
  • His ally Lockdown has a more amiable relationship with the mercenary. In the sense that the two compete over who can kill their quarry first. If they are in a particular good mood, they have a contest on who can rack the highest body count.
  • You can add rape to the numerous atrocities Guaron has tried to do. That is among a number of things he has promised to do to archenemy Sousuke. The revelation was met with immediate condemnation with the majority of the gods there. Both Sonja and Furiousa has promised to bust his face inside his head. It didn't matter if his intended victim was male. Chris Hansen promised to get Gauron to take a seat in his temple... if he can survive the encounter.
    • Now that the boy has officially entered the Pantheon, Gauron can finally renew his feud. He hopes this one will end in his favor.
    • Not everyone saw this as a turn off. Slaanesh was already interested in the mercenary. This just put him among the top prospects. It remains to be seen if Gauron is willing to return the favor.
  • If the Pyro scared them silly, than Gauron could give most of them heart attacks. Most of them would rather leave him the hell alone, lest he takes his anger on them. But you can bet any of them would take the chance to get rid of him if given the chance.
  • Hasn't bothered with Creepy Twins Hansel and Gretel. Not because he thinks children shouldn't be harmed, but because even he is a little freaked out about them. They too compete with him in terms of finding employment.
  • Lobo doesn't consider Gauron as much of a threat. It's hard to do so when one can attest to killing everyone of your kind.
  • Many are surprised to find out that the Night Raid used to be one of his most prized followers. A disagreement of targets led to a falling out. Akame managed to seek refuge in the House of Ambiguity, where the group is under the watchful eye of Guts.
  • Has kept Khaled Al-Asad as an important ally, if only because the man pays hefty sums of money to his temple to overthrow governments.

    Monkey D. Garp 
Monkey D. Garp, God of Vocational Irony (former Vice Admiral, Garp the Hero, "The Fist")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/garp_bounty_rush.png
  • Intermediate God (potentially Greater in his youth)
  • Symbol: His dog mask and the Marine Symbol
  • Theme Song: Kokoro no Minato
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Wacky Parent, Serious Child, Vetinari Job Security, Sharing a Lot in Common with Luffy, Masterful Marine, Pirate Progeny, Epic Flail, The Dreaded to pirates, Ruthless Training Conditions, Considered THE Marine, Charles Atlas Superpower, Tough Love, Used to be Quite the Fox, Protective of His Grandkids, Hero Antagonist, Bunny-Ears Lawyer
  • Domains: Marines, Family Complications, Enforcing Justice, Professions
  • Allies: Monkey D. Luffy, Portgas D Ace and Sabo (his biological and adoptive grandsons), Izumi Curtis, Sage Harpuia, the Officers sub-house in general, Davos Seaworth
  • On good terms with: Tyrion Lannister, Bluestar
  • On speaking terms with: Magellan (due to their roles in the World Government), Haru Okumuru and the Phantom Thieves in general
  • Enemies: Most pirate deities in One Piece (mainly the villains ones, he's more neutral on the Straw Hats), Admiral Akainu, Black Manta, Risky Boots, The Child Abuse Supporters (particularly Heihachi Mishima), Relius Clover, Tywin Lannister
  • Pities: Kif Kroker
  • Monkey D. Garp is a legendary Marine hero. A Vice Admiral turned Marine instructor after the Battle of Marineford, he is known as "Garp the Hero" for being a highly competent, if somewhat eccentric and goofy man who pursues pirates, and one of the more conscientious members of the World Government's Marines. Despite this, his son Monkey D. Dragon is an infamous revolutionary who seeks to overthrow the World Nobles (some of the people Garp works for, technically), and his grandson Monkey D. Luffy is hoping to be King of the Pirates. This has proven rather problematic for him.
  • Garp has tried to raise his grandsons to be marines like him, and to put it bluntly it hasn't worked out. Some of his training methods have come off as rather harsh, but he insists that it helped him toughen up and does care for them. He agrees with a lot of the training methods that Izumi put the Elric brothers through, and her kind heart. He was overjoyed to see all his grandsons together in the pantheon, fearing he had lost that forever since Akainu killed Ace.
  • While he disagrees with his progeny's life choices, he still loves them. His grand-paternal love is why he hates Tywin Lannister; Tywin has emotional abused all his children and messed with their life for his political purposes while claiming to do it out of family value, his worst offense being ordering the gang-rape of the woman Tyrion loved just because Tyrion wanted to marry a smallfolk woman. As far as Garp is concerned, Tywin has no idea on what family really is.
  • Naturally Monkey D. Garp feels bad for Tyrion. As far as he's concerned, Tyrion did love up to his family name and legacy. He also seems to approve of Haru Okumuru pursuing her dreams even if it's not what her father wanted. This attitude has gotten some more zealous members of the House of Justice to criticize letting his grandkids off the hook. Most of them do agree with Garp that nobody should be condemned for the sins of their family.
  • After seeing what Tywin did, Garp has a deep-seated hatred for the Child Abuse Supporters. He already finds Tywin despicable, but the Child Abuse Supporters approve of being horrible family members. He really hates Relius for experimenting and tormenting his family, and Heihachi for his attempts at killing his progeny.
  • While a Marine, Monkey D. Garp hates Akainu with a passion for murdering his adoptive grandson Portgas D Ace. As Akainu's a psychotic Knight Templar, most non-evil members of the House of Justice do as well. Compared to the more ruthless members of the World Government, Garp's views and attitude to justice is appreciated. The Phantom Thieves, who target evil above the law, respect Garp for being honest enforcement(especially the Niijima sisters), and Garp usually looks the other way considering who they usually go against despite being vigilantes. Sage Harpuia likes a moral figure in the World Government.
  • Relates to Bluestar because of how she had to choose between her job and her kids. Due to his position, during the Marineford War he felt helpless when his grandson tried to save his other grandson. He pities Kif Kroker for having to put up with a complete failure of a general despite his competence. Garp also gets along with Davos Seaworth since he's an honorable seaman.
  • Garp's considered The Dreaded to pirates, putting him up against the House of Crime and especially the sub-house of Piracy. And for a good reason; he has no Devil Fruit, but can easily punch through rock and metal, throw cannonballs with his bare hands and has been considered for the position of Admiral. Of course it's only a job, and he only shows real antagonism for evil pirates like Black Manta and Risky Boots.

  • Annoyed by: H2ODelirious, Joel, Vinny
  • Within one week, a series of mysterious cases baffled even the brightness of officers and detectives from the Tropes Pantheon Police Department or TPPD and shook many of the Pantheon’s denizens as the news was being reported within the domain. Several high-profile human members have been found dead inside their temples; with some of their bodies being stored in closets after being garroted, being in an apparent accident, or being poisoned by their favorite food. There's little evidence the officers can find as the cameras were mysteriously shut down during the incidents, no fingerprints are found and no signs of forced entry. Once more, these victims rarely come to their temples, so the killer likely planned their movements as well, making these cases a series of planned hits a likely possibility, the police and detectives speculated. While the victims would still live given that they are immortal (although some deities just take a lot longer to revive themselves depending on their injuries), the divine officers and detectives from the TPPD are on high alert and gathering any clue or evidence they possibly find before any more hits can happen. Meanwhile, rumors began to spread within the Pantheon how the murders happened around the time of the arrival of a new deity from a week ago.
  • Considered one of the greatest and most elusive assassins in his world, Agent 47 is known for his creative and varied ways in which he assassinates his targets, his persistence in making sure he eliminates all people he was hired to kill (save for a few expectations) and his unfaltering dedication to his line of work. But underneath his stoic demeanor, lies a dark, tragic, and mysterious past. He was the product of a secret cloning experiment done by one named Dr. Ort-Mayer to create the perfect assassin using the DNA from himself and 4 other individuals from different backgrounds. He was later recruited by the International Contract Agency (ICA), a neutral organization that takes contracts for anyone willing to pay, upon the insistence of his future handler Diana Burnwood, who sees his potential despite 47's unknown background.
  • More than a year after the events on the Carpathian Mountains and resuming his usual profession, 47 reviews a bunch of potential contracts from his handler Diana, who has been taking up new clients following the dissolution of the ICA and Providence. One of the contracts stood out, as all targets were hailing from a place called the Pantheon, a place where the Gods reside, with the reward being the usual huge sum of money and an invitation to reside within the realm. He was doubtful about this proposal at first, unsure if he was being tricked or what to make of the possibility of being a god if the offer is true. But the contract came with information compiled from his handler about the background of the Pantheon, its residents, and group entities, some of them are fantastical like superpowered beings to giant robots to talking ponies. They also contain deities 47 would be familiar with, which include criminals who wanted to expand their empire, corrupt people of high status to shadow governments as large if not larger than the ones he had faced before. Having faith in his partner’s judgment having worked together for so long and knowing this would be a challenge they were both interested in, he decides to accept the contract and prepares for his next hit. After 47 completed one of his Pantheon contracts and returned to his current hideout, he finds a mysterious letter delivered to him, stating he was invited to the realm of the Gods, as God of Consummate Professionals, for him being essentially being Married to the Job as well as his skills, demeanor and actions both the Pantheon and in his mortal realm.
  • Upon ascending, he and his handler have opened themselves to accepting contracts from anyone to (almost) anyone in the Pantheon as well as for targets in their respective normal realms as long as they pay well. While 47 is not afraid to assassinate anyone in the Pantheon he is contracted to kill regardless of the deity's rank and power, even he himself has his limits as he's still just a "human" albeit a genetically enhanced one. To prevent another Terminus Hotel incident, he and his handler established that they can only accept targets from Quasideities to Intermediate rank, regardless if they are human, talking animal, alien, robot or even a ghostnote . As much as 47 isn't afraid to take on anyone, even the great Asura himself, they can't afford to put themselves in unnecessary danger that's above what the Elusive Hitman is capable of. They would also turn down any contracts harming children, even if the child was evil like Stewie Griffin. He also tend to avoids killing any non-targets if ever possible, although it's more out of a sense of professional pride than any moral hesitation.
  • The temple(s) where he occasionally resides is a safehouse, which stores he stores various guns, explosives, other weapons, and poisons that would aid in his missions. He stores some of his favorite suits and disguises there as well. It also comes with a sophisticated shooting range, he does target practice to refine his skills. He doesn't stay there often as he prefers to move around and not linger in a location for long. It only appears to his most loyal followers, who are sharp enough to find it as it's well hidden. Even then, they are not allowed inside the basement of the temple where all of his stuff is located.
  • 47 would sometimes disguise as other adult male human and humanoid deities or pretend to be a new deity with a title no one has claimed, either for missions or for general Pantheon explorations. His disguise is mainly composed of a clothes change and very convincing acting the part of the person or persona he is trying to pretend, which works surprisingly well on a lot of people. But mindreaders and psychics like Haruka Kotoura and Charles Xavier and those with keen observational skills like L are not easily fooled and 47 tends to avoid and keep an eye on them to not blow his cover. In addition to his first title, he was later granted the second title of God of Blending-In Stealth Gameplay due to his ability to blend in and avoid detection within crowds. As part of his title, a condition was placed where if he gets caught in a middle of a crime by guards, by innocent civilians, or left any incriminating evidence, he would be reported immediately to the TPPD and/or be immediately shot on sight. The Elusive Hitman accepts this condition as he likes to challenge himself.
  • Yes, "47" is the name he goes by as what his former captors would refer to him and what his handler Diana would later give him at his behest. He recently renounced this name sometime after an incident in the Carpathian Mountains, through his handler would still refer to him as "47" and just dropped the title "Agent" from that name. For now, the deities would refer to him as either "47" for convenience, by his frequently used alias "Tobias Rieper" or whichever alias he used to check in when dressed in his non-black suit red-tie attire around the Pantheon. He was asked why he hasn't adopted a normal given name yet. His reply? "Names are for friends, so I don't need one."
  • He's a frequent visitor of the House of Travel as his profession requires a lot of traveling. He's also a frequent visitor of the House of Weapons, mainly to shop for pistols, sniper rifles, or explosives he would use for his missions or restock on some ammo (they made a deal to be his supplier in exchange for hush money so that they wouldn't rat him out to the officers who are actively looking for him). Occasionally, in his free time, he would visit the House of Cultures to study the places he's assigned to as to not stand out like the Thom(p)sons as well as the Houses of Knowledge and Jobs and Profession to study whichever jobs or hobbies are available that could get him closer to his target(s). Surprisingly, he rarely goes to the House of Costumes as he prefers to get his suits from his preferred tailor in his mortal realm or whichever clothes he finds lying around or on a person, though he does go there to get a fun wacky costume or two.
    • The house he actively avoids is the House of Mentalism, specifically, the sub-houses of Mentalities and Mind Control, given the aforementioned mindreaders and psychics. While he's shown to have a surprising amount of mind control resistance, he's not exactly completely immune to it. Given that there are more powerful and experienced psychics in this place who can read his thoughts or control him for their benefit, he would rather be cautious about going near them. Also, a certain hall dedicated to memories makes him uneasy given that he only has spare memories of his time before escaping the asylum and being recruited by the ICA (and they were not pleasant ones). Although, if he finds himself being assigned to that House for a hit, he may need to find a way to shield his head upon entering.
  • Agent 47 has unusual respect toward the House of Faith, given that he used to befriend an Italian priest when he worked for him as his church gardener and comforted him even after being aware of 47's clone origins, although they went their separate ways following his return to his born profession. Some felt like he should have heeded his priest's advice in going to the righteous path, other people like Sister Luke are conflicted about his associations with the Church, and others like Father Anderson would have preferred him to use his skills to fight against evil in the name of the Lord. For now, 47 says he's content with his decision and wants to use his skills his own way. He also does anonymous donations to charities and churches to that house, who in turn have mixed feelings about the whole thing upon hearing rumors on who their benefactor might be. While they appreciate the fact that he's donating to charity (presumably as a way to atone for his killings), they obviously don't appreciate how he earns that money. On a side note, he keeps an eye on why any nun deities, good or otherwise due to his experiences with a similarity-dressed assassination squad called The Saints.
  • Another group of Houses with conflicting opinions about him are the House of Family and Relatives and the House of Childhood And Adolescence. Some members of the former House pity that he was trained and abused by his supposed father, having an unorthodox origin, having to kill his clone brethren multiple times and his remaining clone brother sacrificed himself to save him. However, they don't like that he’s still a hitman for hire with some of his targets on other missions being related to each other. The members of the latter House are a bit more lenient and more pitiful toward him but still wary of The Hitman. This because as of this writing, he hasn't been shown to harm an actual child and he wasn't given a normal childhood himself, making spend his younger years being trained to kill. They would however don't like that his contracts would often orphan children including his own handler, he and Diana have since reconciled regarding the matter.
  • Sometimes 47 prefers jogging alone in some isolated forested parts of the House of Nature, which is also convenient for him as he can pick up poisons from its sub-house, Hall of Toxicity. On one of these occasions, however, he found himself being approached by an assassin named Shay Cormac, having figured out that 47 was behind the temple murders; in addition to learning that he defected twice and having both killed several assassins in their stories, he figured that his skills could make him a potential ally. 47 pointed out that while their disillusionment with the groups they served for are kinda similar, argued that he wasn't close to anyone working there besides his handler and even then, he could never really betray those who have helped him even if they are working against him. This angered Shay saying he has no right to judge him for what he has done, and causing a fight to ensue, leading to the two assassins attacking each other until 47 managed to outmaneuver Shay and choke his attacker out, not before The Assassin Hunter vowed revenge on him. Ezio Auditore would later find the two near the end of their fight, having had the knowledge of what Shay's plan for the newcomer was, and tried to stop him. Being impressed by the stoic hitman's skills, Ezio asked if 47 ever considered joining an Assassins' Guild like he was, to which 47 declined to state that he finds their assassination methods too flamboyant for his liking, as they sometimes assassinate their targets themselves in open public. 47 walks off and leaves his now Rival to deal with his enemy's lifeless body behind, taking note to never take this forest path again.
  • After the forest incident, stories of his activities spread like wildfire among Assassins, Mercenaries, and Bounty Hunters of the Pantheon’s criminal underworld, seeing his creative skills and professionalism in his craft as something to aspire or to outmatch. Some assassins (namely Bullseye, Deadshot and Deathstroke on three separate occasions) decided to "meet" 47 during his missions and/or actively hunt him down note  while others like HK-47 stop by to observe and be impressed by his skills. Other times, he would meet other assassins who have been targeted themselves, such as John Wick, whom he has to fight and find themselves to be equally matched in terms of gun and hand-to-hand combat. While 47 is annoyed by it at first, he slowly gets used to the attention given the nature of the Pantheon’s pension for interactions, and he figured he would have to work with some of them at some point to not get unwanted heat. Over time, he's even agreed to cooperate on some missions with other assassins if they are in a shared mission, but he makes sure to let them know that their working relationship with them is only professional. It helps that he usually takes no moral sides (unless it gets personal) and seems fine working with both villains like Lex Luthor and Darth Tyranus or known good assassins like Black Widow and Lady Silva. This eventually (and ironically) lead to him taking Boba Fett's offer in joining the Pantheonic Soldiers of Fortune for his own protection and benefit.
  • Eventually, he does start to open up a bit, at least socially, to other deities after hearing about their hardships before their ascension and finding himself relating to them in some way. Being no stranger to betrayals and revenge, it's easy to see why Jimmy and Yoruka would get along with the stoic hitman. Then there's Laura a.k.a X-23, a fellow clone assassin whose origins and abusive upbringing are quite uncannily similar to the point that it would unnverve him quite a bit. Having heard that he accepted his purpose as an assassin as he feels like he's unable to live a normal life due to his origins, Laura can't help but feel sorry for him and she offered him her support if he ever needed it, to which he appreciated the gesture. He considered her fortunate that she was able to cope with her trauma and tried to put her past behind her like his former ward as she tried to better herself despite her own demons.
  • Despite usually distancing himself from other deities on his off-missions, 47 has a surprising soft spot toward Fluttershys, holding a fair amount of respect toward her love of animals (being reminded of the time when he used to have a pet rabbit and mice during his childhood and a pet canary during his adulthood). Her meek nature also reminds him of Victoria, a genetically enhanced teenage girl whom he used to protect. When he learned about what Gilda did to her, he offered to "protect" her from Gilda should she ever try to harm her again. Fluttershy quickly, but politely, refused, not wanting any unnecessary violence caused for her sake. Part of the reason why she refused was that she is intimidated by him, especially having heard rumors that he had off at least two of the pets that he had. When she tried to confront him regarding these rumors, 47 can only avoid eye contact with her out of guilt. note 
  • Agent 47 pities mistreated clones, as he recalls one encounter with the elusive pokemon Mewtwo while in one of his contracts. 47 finds The Genetic Pokémon relatable, being both genetically enhanced clones made for combat who searched for a purpose in their existence following the discovery of their origins. While Mewtwo is unable to bond with him due to the nature of 47's profession, he is nonetheless grateful to find another clone with similar harsh experiences.
    • He pities child assassins as well, even if they are not clones themselves. One example is Rolo Lamperouge, who was a trained assassin from a young age and never had a normal life until he was assigned to watch over his "brother" Lelouch. The fact that he died trying to save his "brother" from a militia ready to gun him down would hit too close to home for the Hitman. On a side note, while being wary of Lelouch due to his mind-controlling Geass, he is open to working with him if ever asked to make a contract, as long as 47 can do his own way. He does respect him for leading a rebellion and militia, not unlike his clone brother Lucas Grey, he also respects that he sacrificed his life for his sister to give her the peaceful world she wanted.
  • Understandably, any criminal similar to any of 47's past targets would be wary of the Elusive Hitman. Todd Alquist, for example, as he sees 47 as a treat to him, his uncle, and his fellow members of his Aryan Brotherhood, considering that the Hitman had killed a biker leader with implied ties to the Brotherhood before. It's worth noting that while 47 and Alquist are both unemotional killers with a pension about not leaving any witnesses, the main difference is that 47 has hints of compassion and guilt in him (and has a bit of pride) while Todd barely understands the concept, just content to do what he's told, being okay with making someone a slave and generally just wants to impress people. There's also Huang Lee, a Triad member feeling uneasy about the Hitman for what he did to two rival Triad groups, taking out a large portion of them just to lure out and assassinate one of their leaders. Having remembered that one of his targets was inspired and played by the man himself, Sean Bean is a bit afraid that the Hitman would mistake him for the seemingly Undying target and finish the job.
  • After receiving a briefing from his handler, 47 traveled to Shadow Moses Island to eliminate Revolver Ocelot and Liquid Snake. After sneaking past the guards and using a keycard scrambler to make it to the lower levels of the facility, 47 notices that several piles of the boxes laying around, to which the Hitman turns around to one specific box and says that he knows that someone is hiding there, since he can sense people and important objects with using his Instinct. Solid Snake then comes out of the box explaining himself, he knows that the Elusive Hitman targeting the two and to let the Hitman know that he wanted to take down Liquid Snake alone. Remembering the intel given to him around Snake's clone past, his relations with his clone brother, and sympathizing with what he has gone through, he figured that it wasn't his fight to take and reluctantly let the Legendary Mercenary go to Liquid Snake while he takes on Ocelot. The two go their separate ways with 47 eliminating Ocelot with the same virus that killed him (not before also vowing revenge on the assassin) and then receive a notification that his other target was eliminated as well. While Snake does feel some sort of kinship with 47 being especially after hearing about his origins from other assassin deities, it's not likely that they would be working regularly given they have conflicting outlooks with regards to killing, with him being disgusted with himself for the killing he had to do while 47 having no qualms with any of his assassinations (not knowing that 47's muted emotions are likely due to the genetic and chemical tempering and that he also with his own demons regarding his past).
  • Among his other assassination skills, 47 is also an expert sniper of whom other known sniper deities like The Sniper and Golgo 13 respect for his professionalism and marksmanship. On one mission, he was assigned to kill an arms dealer deity (along with his group of bodyguards) who is meeting up with one of the Soviet officer deities at one of the camps at the House of Military and Warfare. As he started to shoot the guards (via headshots, causing elaborate accidents, or shooting the targets into a conveniently placed well), this activity hasn't gone unnoticed by another sniper named Lt. Karl Fairburne, who is assigned to kill one of the Soviet Officers and his men. The two marksmen observed each other's kills, not retreating as they don't seem to be getting in each other's way nor alerting anyone (which Fairburne was worried about). 47 easily saw Fairburne in his scope while the Red Fox only got a glimpse of the Elusive Hitman from the other side of the camp as he was walking away when it was over. While they see each other as another mercenary/soldier who nearly endangered their mission, they would be lying if they say they don't respect each other's marksmanship and creativity.
  • He had his clothes stolen by a certain masked man after getting choked from behind and then proceeded to impersonate him as he went on a bloody rampage. After 47 recovered, he tried to locate and assassinate the Youtuber, only for the hockey-mask-wearing deity to beg for his life and apologized for choking him since he didn't know that he knocked out the Elusive Hitman himself. Delirious then admitted he used to be an occasional follower of his and wanted to follow his footsteps as "Hitmanlirious". Being flattered that he played his games, 47 decided to spare Delirious, who in turned to pester the Hitman to go on a mission with him. This team-up didn't last very long due to Delirious' tendency to go on a bloody rampage whenever someone spots him.
    • He also finds the Vinesauce duo Vinny and Joel a bit annoying to him as well when the Hitman teamed up with them separately. The latter for also going on a rampage when he gets spotted (having attacked a bunch of people with a didgeridoo) in addition to comparing 47 to a bald pornstar as well as every famous bald guy he can think of, while the former for glitching his game at least three times (thought he does find Vinny to have more potential as a hitman than the other two).
  • If there's one god Chester A. Bum always looks forward to seeing, it's Agent 47. Whenever 47 has to do 'business' in the around the Houses, he would consistently drop money into Chester's styrofoam cup whenever they crosspaths. Chester is even one of the rare gods that always forgives the elusive hitman whenever he has to 'borrow' Chester's clothes. When he is finally able to talk to the assassin himself, the Homeless God brings up the fact that the Agent has conflicting and confusing backstories, one relating to him as an orphan raised with other children to be trained as assassins or while another backstory state that he had been created by Dr. Litvenko. While the assassin that ascended is exclusively from the video games, 47 doesn't need to correct Chester in the version he is from as the contradictions help maintain this aura of secrecy around him. That and he doesn't like to elaborate on his actual backstory in general.
  • Other random minor information: 1) In the House of Gaming, when no one is around the arcade rooms, you can sometimes see him doing sick high scores in DanceDanceRevolution-like games. 2) Once visited one of the restaurants at the House of Food asking if he can use the bathroom. He says he needs it. 3) The Bribe respects him for his skills and also appreciates his shout-out in one of his missions. 4) Once confused his another herald for another Agent Smith until he learns about his destructive intentions and subsequently watch his back when The Prideful Agent was around. 5) While he has a few female and male admirers who want to either sleep or date him due to his good looks akin to a male supermodel, he politely denies it as he doesn't seem to show any interest in any of them (he has not confirm whether he's asexual or not). 6) Has heard about the Forever War and is not interested in joining in the conflict, as he "doesn't play politics".
  • Has a seat in the Hall of Game Mechanics.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8b1df0312ef7fa97575b4aa74235824d.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: ThunderClan's symbol in blue
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (True Neutral during her crazy phase)
  • Portfolio: Having to decide between becoming leader or keeping her kits, choosing the former for the greater good, being a great leader, mentor to Firestar, daddy issues, twin sister issues, a life consisting of one terrible event after another, betrayed by her trusted deputy, fragile psychological state, hating StarClan for a while, death by saving her Clan, resident of StarClan
  • Domains: Cats, Leadership, Dilemmas, Duty, Madness, Doubt
  • Allies: Firestar, Jayfeather, Bastet, Simba, Mufasa, Artoria Pendragon, Shiro Amada, Sam and Dean Winchester, Sophie Zawistowski, Romeo and Juliet, Francis (Felidae)
  • Enemies: Scourge, Scar, Dr. Sofia Lamb, Ragyo Kiryuin, Akechi Mitsuhide
  • Opposed by: Hilda
  • Complicated Relations: The House of Family, the House of Prophecy, Salem Haberhagen, Morgana
  • His Approval Fills Her With Shame: Kiritsugu Emiya
  • Scorns: Garfield
  • Bluestar started her life as a benevolently ambitious ThunderClan cat who wished for nothing more than to do her very best for her Clan. What she didn't count on was the amount of pain she'd have to face and overcome on her journey to become leader. On top of losing her mother at a young age and her twin sister later, when her kits are born her Clan is at a crossroads regarding who will become Sunstar's deputy. Since she has kits it seems like it'll be Thistleclaw by default. However Bluestar (then Bluefur) knows how Thistleclaw really is and cannot bear the idea of her Clan being involved in senseless battles. So she makes her choice: she gives her kits to be raised in another Clan and becomes deputy. She never really gets over it until her death.
    • The ridiculous amount of pain she has gone through in her mortal life means she has quite the affinity for Sam and Dean, perhaps the biggest woobies in the Pantheon.
    • Discovered that there are even more painful choices than hers when she learned of Sophie Zawistowski's history. She's trying hard not to think that humans are some kind of monsters to force a mother to send one of her children to death like that.
  • Is keenly interested in Romeo and Juliet's story because that sort of thing is sadly common in the Clans. She went through such a romance with a tom called Oakheart, and while it didn't end in the death of either cat, it did lead to her having kits and having to give them away.
  • It's known that Clan cats sometimes wonder whether there exists a higher force than their warrior ancestors in StarClan. She believes she has found it in the Pantheon.
    • She also thinks that the frequent prophecies weighing on the Clans' minds probably originate in the House of Prophecy. Since quite some of those prophecies have been misunderstood and led to tragedy, she's not all that fond of the House for its lack of clarity, though she understands its role in shaping the future.
  • As she's a cat, she gets protection and endorsement from the supreme goddess of cats herself, Bastet. She also hangs out a lot at the House of Felines in general; it's where she feels most at home, especially as she can't quite shake off her belief as a born Clan cat that Humans Are Cthulhu, even if her time in the Pantheon has shown her that there are many humans with concerns similar to her own.
    • Although she doesn't necessarily like all felines. Salem seems decent enough, but she's disconcerted by how he used to be human. But most of her contempt is reserved for Garfield, who represents the kind of pampered kittypet that no cat should strive to be, in her opinion.
    • Also doesn't really understand why Morgana doesn't like being called a cat and insists that he's human. Honestly she's kind of offended that he's offended. Though she can't help but admire his thieving skills and think that he'd make a great Clan cat.
    • The cat she is closest to is probably Francis. It's probably because he's the most normal cat compared to the ones mentioned above. Francis has also told her that her blue-gray pelt reminds him of a dear friend. Bluestar, in turn, admires his wit and thinks he'd make a good warrior.
  • Hilda has a lot of resentment for her on account of Bluestar giving her children away and has wondered out loud whether she ever cared for them. Bluestar feels her resentment is justified and hasn't tried to argue with her.
  • Simba is surprisingly understanding of her, as he knows that being the leader means to do what one knows is best and not what one wants. Both also suffered a lot from losing family members. On a more optimistic note, Bluestar is very pleased to finally have the chance to talk with a real lion, lions being sort of worshipped in the Clans. On the other hand, she thinks Scar is unworthy of being called a lion for trying to murder his family and sovereign to seize power. He rather reminds her of Tigerstar, her traitorous former Number Two.
  • She also hates Akechi Mitsuhide for betraying the man who trusted him. Again, this has to do with her bad memories of suffering something similar at the paws of Tigerstar.
  • Artoria has a great rapport with her since they both sacrificed personal happiness for the sake of their people, went on to become known as great leaders and spent the rest of their life regretting it.
  • Kiritsugu believes she did the right thing for the sake of saving her Clan from being led by Thistleclaw, who would have surely led the Clan to unnecessary battles for the sake of his bloodlust. Bluestar doesn't really appreciate being approved of by someone who'd go as far as killing his own family to uphold his ideals.
  • Never feels welcome in the House of Family, as most of the residents treat her coldly on account of her decision to give her kits away, even if it ate her up for the rest of her life. She understands their attitude, however her history makes her very aggressive against any mothers who mistreat their children, believing they don't know how lucky they are to have children at all.
  • In her stay in the Pantheon she has learned about the fixation that humans have on girls that wear cat ears. Now she thinks we're even sillier (and sometimes more disturbing) than she originally thought.
  • Is rather fond of Shiro Amada because his mild-mannered personality, pacifist nature and leadership style remind her of her successor Firestar.

  • Routinely makes visits to Willy Wonka when his candy supply runs low. When he heard of Vanellope von Schweetz's ascension, he also tried to get candy from her, but Ralph put a stop to that. He still goes and visits her for tea though.
  • Despite having an elderly, mustachioed butler and being the world's greatest detective, he has never been seen in a room with Batman.
  • Tends to slouch in his chair because it increases his reasoning skills.
  • Sometimes tend to mistake Lan Hikari for Light due to their similar voices. Lan in turn does his very best to behave around L.
  • Has become acquaintanced with the Mangakas Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi (Ashirogi Muto) due to having the same creator, Mashiro looking just like him and Takagi admiring the manga he comes from.
    • Though he does have some conflicted feelings about Takagi in particular, who looks like Light and is a huge Death Note fan to boot. Also, the very fact that his lookalike is best buds with the Light lookalike puts him on edge. But he will admit he isn't similar to Light, personality-wise.
  • Was quite pleased when he found out Near ascended into a companion house, even more so that it was also in the same house be he and Light were in, meaning more eyes to keep track of him. Also helps that Near also was the one who took down Light in the end. Is still confused if he used a Death Note or not to get Teru Mikami down to the warehouse, and has even asked the House of Knowledge's help for figuring it out. No direct answer has popped up yet.
  • Was visited by Rem, for killing him to protect Misa. He responded by admitting that there were no hard feelings felt during the time due to them both being tricked by Light, and has promised to at least stop Misa from spending life in jail or being killed should she be caught. While she appreciates the sentiment, she prefers to have someone else arrest her.

  • Annoyed by: Homer Simpson
  • Respected by: Rick Blaine
  • Admires: Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker
  • After constant bickering, Michael Scott finally got a chance to enter the House of Commerce. All he had to do is to run the hose for the Guardians for one day. The stock market crashed merely 30 minutes into the day, with various deities panicking. Just when it all seemed lost, one of his followers told him to get a hold of himself and get the job done. Eventually, the duo managed to stabilize the economy. At the end of the day, he didn't get the title. Instead, they decided to ascend the woman who helped him, Liz Lemon. Now, she serves as a mediator between the guardians.
    • Michael has mixed feelings over the ascension. On the one hand he remains jealous with her entrance into the House of Commerce. On the other hand, she has proven to be a valuable ally in running his business. Liz gets annoyed with Michael's occasional attempts at hitting on her, but ultimately is content with helping him out.
  • Her ascension was made possible by the relentless vouching from the Co-deities of Sitcoms. Lucy and Ricky both arrived to congratulate her. Things didn't hit off at first, with Liz a bit miffed with the structure of their traditional marriage, but it wasn't a big enough wedge to prevent them from becoming friends.
  • Liz has spent a lot of time with Leslie Knope, almost to the point of being her new BFF. It could be that they represent the two actresses that portrayed them. She received a much colder reception with Ron Swanson, not to pleased at the way her boss was handling her job. Ron for his part doesn't like how Liz has been influencing Leslie to call him out more often.
  • Stan was relieved to find the best alternative to the role. Quite frankly, he was tired having to deal with dumb employees all the time. Though it's not all sunshine and rainbows; Stan finds her feminist attitude as grating. Still, the two get along with each other more often than most.
    • That goes double for Church, God of Frustrated Resignation. At least he can send some of his followers over to her temple. Together, he Stan and Liz have formed a Trio of Sanity in the hopes of leading those in the Pantheon to make good decisions.
  • When things get to stressful for her, she looks over to Amélie to cheer her up.
  • Is in the middle of a feud with Archie Bunker. It all started when Archie made an off-hand comment of Liara in the House of Aliens. Liz demanded that he apologize. The stiff man that he was, Archie refused. Things deteriorated into a war of words, with one side hoping to wear down the other.
    • Things got worse for her when Cartman got involved. His first order of business? Covering her temple with toilet paper. Liz has been forced to keep one eye open from now on to avoid his pranks.
  • Whatever you do, don't ever try to take her food. Very few things in the Pantheon would save you from the beating Liz would give you.
  • Mr. Burns assigned her to the task of improving the productivity of Homer Simpson, his most loyal and yet least competent employee. The bumbling dad proved to be as difficult as Burns fears, putting Liz through the winger. She remains determined to turn things around.
  • She gained a free drink courtesy of Rick Blaine. The bartender wanted to hear of her exploits in her home world. a few drinks later, he remained just as impressed as before. Liz thanked the man before she left.
  • When she found out that her favorite Star Wars characters were in the Pantheon, she passed out over sheer excitement. When Leia saw Liz in her temple, the employee was garbed in Leia's old outfit, Odango Hair and all. After calming her down, Leia allowed her to stay over for a sleepover. She eventually learned to like the fangirl's company.
    • She made a quick visit to Luke's temple afterwards, hoping to get her hands on a lightsaber. Luke was hesitant at first, but agreed in exchange in tips on how to better organize the Rebel Alliance. She keeps the weapon by her side to this day.
  • Enjoyed The West Wing despite the competitive influence behind it, so when President Bartlet came around she was eager to go meet him. He initially mistook her for a certain governor who has him spooked, but after clearing up that misunderstanding he accepted her support, bringing her in as his Secretary of the Pantheon.

    Nick and Nora Charles 
Nick and Nora Charles, Co-deities of Working on Their Vacations
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the-thin-man_5092.jpg
From left to right: Nick, Nora, and Asta
  • Demigods
  • Theme Song: The Thin Man Intro
  • Symbol: The face of their dog Asta
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Nick), Chaotic Good (Nora)
  • Portfolios: The Alcoholics who deal with multiple murders, Inter-Class Romance, Deadpan Snarkers, Happily Married, have a Loyal Animal Companion
  • Domains: Good, Mysteries, Nobility, Love
  • Herald: Asta, their dog
  • Allies: Barney Gumble, Captain Haddock, Cana Alberona, Tintin, Seto Kaiba, Scrooge McDuck, Charlotte Labeouf, Cynthia, Gomez and Morticia Addams, Jeff and Lisa Fremont
  • Enemies: Professor Moriarty, Jack the Ripper, Ato-ko Shirogane, Dr. Frank-n-Furter
  • Pities: Norma Desmond, Joe Gillis
  • At a glance, the couple don't exactly look like hard-boiled detectives. For once, the two reside at a higher social class (though Nick himself was lower down on the working class before he married her). Their behavior doesn't make it look that way either. But once one notices how the couple works on a crime, there's no denying that they are great at what they do. All while Nick and Nora do their hardest to have one vacation without having to solve a mystery. Then again, their ability to work on vacation is the reason they ascended in the first place, to the two aren't as upset as before.
  • Is well regarded in the subhouse of Alcohol. While the two prefer wine over beer, the two are not above trying out other beverages and have proven to hold their liquor as well. Barney Gumble played a part in their ascension as a result.
    • Cana invited Nora to a drinking contest to see if the socialite can compete with her. Nora accepted and managed to hold her own for a while before succumbing to the effects. With that said, she earned Cana's respect that day.
    • Haddock has tried to get Tintin to team up with them as much as possible. While he insists it's due to their impressive detective work, Tintin correctly deducted it was because the couple tolerates his drinking far more than he does. Still, even the Charles' are wary with how much his drunkenness can cause problems. Their herald dogs get along as well, with Asta learning to be more confident for Snowy.
  • As with all other detectives, Moriarty as added them on the list of detectives to avoid. In that regard he has been rather successful. The only time he has had problems is by accident as the couple are hardly as active as they have had before.
  • Can be seen in the House of Commerce with other rich socialites. They are a hot commodity as the group often has to deal with various crimes. Both Kaiba and Scrooge has taken a liking to them, the former because they have no bias against him and the latter because they work for free.
    • Nora is seen as a nice socialite who always treats her servants well. Charlotte was there in their inauguration. The girl is a huge fan of the couple and wishes she could find a man as adventurous as Nick.
    • Cynthia was also present, handing Nora a pokeball as thanks.
  • Few Deities have caused as much grief to Jack the Ripper. Many of his patrons have ended up in jail as a result. Even more infuriating is the fact that it is never intentional.
  • Ato-ok thought it would be the perfect couple to break up. A couple of drunkards with an imbalanced income seemed like the perfect setup for a breakup. She went after Nick, hoping to place a wedge between him and Nora. It turns out that Nora wasn't the jealous type, merely sticking her tongue out when she saw Ato-ko in her husband's lap. Likewise, Nick didn't appear to be interested in her.
  • Is seen as one of the most dynamic marriages in the Pantheon. While the two do have arguments (mostly over their involvements in murders), the two are often sync with one another. The Addams family invited the two over to their house, giving them the opportunity to solve a mystery of their manufacturing for once. While the house was indeed creepy, the couple enjoyed their stay in the house. The Addams family also gave pointers on how to spice up their love life, considering they were only seen in bed together once. Nick replied that that's only because they don't show everything in public.
  • Wants nothing to do with Dr. Frank-n-Furter. They know how disruptive he is to married couples and while neither of them are the jealous type they have no intentions of sharing with him.
  • Norma's case holds a special place in their hearts. It turns out they were involved in the case with her and Joe Gillis. They happened to be driving along the streets of Hollywood when they witnessed the gunshot that killed Joe. They promptly alerted the authorities who turned her in. The couple hopes that they can reform her.
  • Applauded the work of Jeffries, as not anyone can solve a case with a broken leg. Turns out that Jeff was also a fan of good alcohol, allowing them to discuss their lives in earnest. Lisa and Nora got together many time afterwards with the later trying out many of the former's dresses.

  • One of the most accomplished Amateur Sleuths of his time, Tintin decided to spend much of it studying up the works of Nancy Drew. The two were created only a year from each other, but both share a desire to help others by cracking cases. And yet, his own ascension seemed out of reach for a long time. His day came when people were mulling about how a reporter could spend so little time actually reporting. Tintin initially took offense to that remark, but when he found others with the same condition, he used the following to make a spot for himself in the Pantheon.
  • His ascension went hand in hand with his best friend Captain Haddock. Together, they hope to continue their adventures in the Pantheon.
    • His ascension was met with great applause from Asterix and Lucky Luke. Both heroes originated from Franco-Belgian comic book writers and were grateful for Tintin's return. Their fanbases may argue over which series is superior, but the trio are in good terms with each other.
  • Has formed a rather interesting dynamic with Hercule Poirot. At first, the detective was skeptical that a mere child could have so many accolades under the belt. Tintin was quick to prove him wrong in their first case together.
  • His detective skills is only exceeded by his sheer luck. Time and time again, Tintin would face dire situations only to come out of them unscathed. This makes him incredibly dangerous when thinking on the fly.
  • Madeline just happened to have met the young reporter in Paris. He was in vacation for once and was happy to share his stories with the young girl. Now that he's in the Pantheon, the two can meet at any time.
  • His detective skills is only exceeded by his sheer luck. Time and time again, Tintin would face dire situations only to come out of them unscathed. This makes him incredibly dangerous when thinking on the fly.
    • Woe be to any bad guy that has to deal with both Tintin and Indiana Jones. Such a team up is sure to frustrate any villain to no end. To make matters worse, the two often meet up due to their wanderlust as well as their knack for getting into trouble.
  • Most know of him as a Nice Guy that is considerate of others and is easy to talk with. But when the time comes to fight back he can brawl with the best of them. It can be jarring to see a kid beat up more burly men without breaking a sweat, especially when he usually doesn't condone violence. It's that sentiment that he shares with swordsman Kenshin.
  • There were murmurs about blocking Tintin's entry into the Pantheon, mainly due to his adventure in Congo. The amount of blackface was enough to turn off many of his books. Ironically, the criticism lessened when it turns out that the DRC actually find it hilarious.
  • There was a time when he and Haddock agreed to star in a a motion capture animated film. While it didn't gain much popularity, the critics liked it well enough, creepy graphics aside. Many believed that the two should have been nominated for Best Animated Film. Tintin is forever grateful to Steven Spielberg for directing it.
  • Tintin is responsible for foiling many plans of evil genius throughout his career, drawing the ire of Moriarty. This is exacerbated by the fact that not even successfully capturing the kid guarantees success. Tintin always has a knack for escaping his bonds.
  • Spends some of his time in the House of Disguises due to a huge fanbase. The Belgian has made a history of pulling off some ridiculous disguises. He managed to get his enemies so riled up, that they would interrogate perfectly normal people just to make sure they are real. Tintin promised to help pick someone for the divine Master of Disguise.
  • Is willing to go great lengths to save people, even those who have wronged him so many times. That makes things complicated with the Count. While he is the God of Forgiveness, he is also the God of Revenge, a ploy that Tintin would never approve of. As such the kid only pays lip service to that deity.
  • Lex Luthor has proven to be one of the more elusive villains Tintin has faced. The supervillain didn't take kindly to when Tintin exposed Roberto Rastapopoulos, one of his most prominent followers.
  • His herald Snowy has been with Tintin for as long as he can remember. Although the dog can cause mischief at times, Snowy has also had Tintin's back. It's for this reason that Tintin pays lip service to Hachiko. Snowy often visits the Loyal Dog to converse. Of course Hachiko advises not to spend too much time with him, making sure that Snowy sticks to Tintin's side.

    Yuri Orlov 
Yuri Orlov, God of Being Good at Morally Questionable Jobs (Lord of War)

  • Rivals: Marcus Kincaid, Drebin 893, The Merchant
  • Opposed by: the ascended T-Dolls, law enforcement agents
  • Born to a family of Ukranian refugees, Yuri Orlov takes up being an arms dealer after witnessing a gunfight between a mobster and a couple of would-be assassins. Although he proves to be very skilled at this job, things change for him after accepting a business partnership with a tyrannical despot. Despite his best efforts to try to live clean and even attempt to do his business legally, it became clear that there was no way to get out, especially after getting captured by an Interpol agent. Yuri was able to escape a jail sentence thanks to the fact that his services were useful to the US government, but by then, not only has his parents have disowned him, his brother and uncle have died, and his wife and son left him, but he is aware that the US government will dispose of him once they have no further use for his services.
  • An airplane landed on an airstrip in the Pantheon, with the event being that a successful businessman would be visiting the place to do some business with someone that requested him for weapons. The man who stepped out of the place introduced himself to his client as Yuri Orlov, who proceeded to showcase the guns he had to his prospective client. After carrying out his business to his customer, he was asked to continue selling weapons to others who wanted it by his client. He ended up getting involved with the Pantheon after realizing that there’s a lot of people there that are going to need some firearms and someone that can effectively set up deals involving them.
  • It quickly became clear that the Pantheon was unlike any other war-torn place that Yuri has gone to. While wars come and go, the Pantheon had a war between multiple alliances that seemed to never end no matter how hard some may try. What Yuri was more curious about was that not only were guns involved in the many wars of the Pantheon (including the aforementioned Forever War), but so was a variety of weaponry far more advanced and outlandish than what he was used to, be it guns that he’s never seen before or something else entirely. He was more than aware that he has his work cut out for him, but it hasn’t deterred him from continuing business as usual.
  • Yuri’s meeting with Ali Al-Saachez ended up being significant for him. With Ali being a self-admitted warmonger, it didn’t come as much of a surprise that he wanted some guns for when he isn’t busy tearing things up inside a mecha. It was through him that Yuri had a much better understanding of some of the more fantastical aspects of the wars that pervade the Pantheon, including those who use much more than regular guns to fight. Ali also complimented Yuri's skills as an arms dealer and was willing to become a regular client of his. Although Yuri didn’t exactly share the same mindset of war as Ali did, he knew of the extent of the wars that are going on in the Pantheon and accepted Ali’s offer for continued business with him. While Ali continues to enjoy widespread slaughter on a mecha, he considers Yuri to be an effective partner for when he needs to get some weapons to instigate some bloodshed on the ground.
  • Many of Yuri’s regular clients in the Pantheon are ruthless warmongers and despots looking to gain access to weapons for themselves and their soldiers. Given his experience in being partners with Andre Baptiste Sr, Yuri approached the likes of Imran Zakhaev among others the same way that he did the Baptiste. Yuri is even invited by those particular figures to see how they’re progressing in their goals, with Yuri noticing that they share the same level of bloodlust and ruthlessness that Baptiste had. A similar kind of relationship has occurred with other prominent criminals such as Hoyt Volker and Zoran Lazarevic, who have sought Yuri and his business as one way to increase their influence.
  • While most of his business is done in war-torn regions, Yuri has done some of his sales in more localized and steady, but still criminal, places in the Pantheon. He ended up getting accustomed to it thanks to meeting someone known only as The Son. Knowing how effective of an arms dealer Yuri is, The Son had been hoping for someone that could give him the resources needed to rebuild his mob in the Pantheon and take down his enemies, and the wide variety of guns that Yuri has at hand was what he needed. The deal went through and what followed was Yuri having some grisly hallucinations on the street after taking a drug The Son gave him during the deal. Yuri turned out fine after this, but he couldn’t escape the fact that even if he was in a much more urban place, it could turn into something very similar to the many regions he’s visited prior. It didn’t change his opinion on anything, including The Son, but he knows just how much people will want guns from anyone, be it himself or rival dealers, to help in any war they’re in.
  • The fact that he wasn’t the only arms dealer in the Pantheon was something that wasn’t lost on Yuri. While he could join with those other arms dealers and make a powerful business from it, Yuri opted to work independently from them and considers them to be rivals in the trade. Both The Merchant and Drebin 893 are eccentric in their own way (as admitted by Yuri), but very much know what they’re doing in their job and consider him to be yet another rival in the race of selling arms. Of those rivals, Marcus Kincaid seems to take Yuri personally as in his view, Yuri has a limited selection of clients based on specific points whereas Marcus will sell his guns (including those that Yuri doesn’t have in his inventory) to anyone he sees fit. He’s also not above hiring others to kill Yuri as a means of staying on top, especially after Yuri described Marcus as a “cheapskate” when talking about rival dealers.
  • It was his meeting with Sundowner that Yuri was able to understand more of the advanced warfare that Ali had mentioned as being prevalent throughout the Pantheon. When Yuri told Sundowner that he primarily sells firearms, Sundowner told him that there was much more to war than just standard guns and introduced him to some projects that he was working on. Not only did Yuri see firsthand what Sundowner was planning, but he also learned of The Corpus and Sundowner even offered him a tour of their facilities. While he was impressed with what both Sundowner and The Corpus were planning, Yuri told them that he prefers to work solo and sell standard weaponry. Sundowner was actually OK with Yuri’s decision, especially since as long as Yuri sells anything of use to anyone no matter how basic that weapon may be, then business is booming for wars. Sundowner told Yuri that he is welcome to visit Sundowner and visit the facilities belonging to him and The Corpus at any time to see what’s being prepared.
  • Even with all the advanced warfare present in the Pantheon, the Tactical Dolls came off as very strange to Yuri. It was one thing to have someone named after the kinds of guns that he sells, but it was another thing entirely for them to be female robot soldiers with access to the very weapons they are named for. While he doesn’t hold anything against the T-Dolls, they consider him rather problematic. They have had their time fighting against different criminals and them having to stop an amoral arms dealer that can sell their namesake weapons to far more dangerous individuals is another problem that they’ll have to put up with.
  • Law enforcement officers, more specifically Interpol agents, have been a problem for Yuri during his time as an arms dealer and such a thing has carried over to the Pantheon. Jack Valentine was very much driven in his efforts to get Yuri arrested, but it was all for naught as Yuri ended up being useful to the US government. In the Pantheon, many of these law enforcers share the same drive that Valentine did, but they are also much more determined in making sure Yuri doesn’t get out of prison as easily, if at all, as he did before. Yuri is aware of this and the fact that the Pantheon has just as many resources that would allow him to get away from law enforcement, some of it to a much more violent degree than before.
  • While Yuri doesn’t believe in War Is Hell, he doesn’t seem to fall under the belief that War Is Glorious either. He simply just views his job as a necessity for others that are participating in war, for better and for worse. Some anti-war deities still have a problem with him given how much he gets involved in letting others stir conflict and cause more bloodshed. A few of those specific deities actually understand that Yuri is a tragic man and believe that he can move on from his profession and try to live a normal life. Even if the Pantheon presented him with more opportunities to live normally than what the real world did, the number of warmongers he’s business partners with meant that such chances at normalcy are going to be gone just as quickly as they appear.
    • As for the deities that openly advocate for war (including Ali), they harbor a much better opinion of him overall, but feel that he shouldn’t be too sullen about his profession. At one point, Yuri was asked about higher powers and if they are receptive to seeing an endless war. He responded that if there was a god dedicated to instigating war and bloodshed (he never gave out names during that interview, but Khorne would fit that description), then they’d be smiling down upon him.

Quasideities

  • Pitied by: Nana Habutae
  • Arthur Poe is the banker in charge of the Baudelaire family's fortune and the one who told them about their parent's deaths. Despite his attempts to help the Baudelaires find a new home and guardian, Poe isn't well-known for being smart or helpfulnote . He sends them to Count Olaf because he is the relative living closest to their home, instead of a trustworthy and competent relative. He also dismisses the siblings' complaints about living with Count Olaf (mainly his abuse), stating that Olaf's methods are his business. It wasn't until Olaf gloated about his Evil Plan that Poe finally sees him for the wicked man he really is. Between that incident and the time when the Baudelaires are framed, Mr. Poe becomes infamous for his pattern of sending the Baudelaires to another guardian, disbelieving them about seeing Olaf in disguise until they prove it, and putting them in danger because of his ignorance. The Baudelaires understandably grow frustrated with this pattern to the point where when they finally meet him again, they decline his offer to help them, having outgrown his ineptitude after realizing he won't change at all. He is last seen in the Hotel Denouement just as it starts to burn to the ground, leaving his fate unknown.
  • One day, a certain car made it's way to the Pantheon on accident. The Baudelaires would recognize the driver as Mr. Poe, much to their chagrin. The Baudelaires aren't happy to see him again, but do admit they're relieved he's okay. No matter how much they dislike his incompetence, they wouldn't have wanted him to die in the fire that burned down the hotel. Mr. Poe doesn't seem to remember that though for some reason.
  • Mr. Poe decides to apply for a job as a banker at the House of Commerce, but is confused when he's rejected, for his failure in keeping the Baudelaire siblings and the Quagmire triplets safe from harm time and again. Mr. Poe then went to the House of Justice to clear up the "misunderstanding", saying that he followed the law to the letter and did everything he could to help the Baudelaires find a good home. The courts however are not convinced, pointing out that Poe was warned about Count Olaf by the Baudelaires more than once, and every time he refused to listen. His incompetence had put the Baudelaires in danger so many times that they refused to go with him ever again. Poe tries to tell them they're just children and wouldn't know any better, only for the Prosecutor to point out that their accomplishments and ability to get themselves out of danger prove that they are capable for their age and don't need his help. While they admit he's competent at banking, his attitude is unacceptable in social services, so he's banned from getting a job at the House of Profession. Poe could only overreact just like the time his superior told him to take off his "#1 banker" pin.
    • Another thing that hasn't changed about Mr. Poe is his tendency to cough every now and then. Naturally, everyone backs off when he does this. If there is one thing they can agree with Count Olaf on, it's that Poe's coughing is rather annoying. Even the nicest of deities would cringe while offering Poe a cough drop.
  • Mr. Poe is not liked by any deity in the Pantheon. The Houses of Commerce have turned him away from banking, with even the most corrupt or obnoxious managers looking down on him for his incompetence. Social services in the House of Profession refuse to let him get any job involving children at all. Good Parents in the Pantheon can't stand his condescending attitude and refuse to even consider him as a caretaker for their children. The most noble deities in the House of Justice, including Phoenix Wright, even frown upon Poe's misinterpretation of the will, seeing it as rather lazy, nor do they like how Poe calls the Quagmire Triplets "twins", using the justification that their brother's death changes their status and disregarding how offensive that is to them. It's safe to say that Mr. Poe has pretty much become The Chew Toy in the Pantheon.
  • To say that Conan and Ai are not fond of him is an understatement. Conan has been ignored or dismissed for being a kid time and again, so he understands perfectly well why Baudelaires would refuse his help and leave him. The two even state that he makes even the most incompetent adult in their world look like a genius in comparison. The South Park kids see him as just another useless adult just like the grown-ups they know.
    • The biggest opposition so far lies in the Kids Next Door Sector V and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, both of whom oppose adult tyranny and dislike adults who let it happen. They outright state that it's because of adults like him that villains get away with their schemes.
  • If there is any god who Poe has formed any kinship with, it's Clancy Wiggum. He is probably the only god who forms a friendship with Poe, since they are both incompetent at best and obnoxious at their worst. The two usually hang out together in their spare time, eating donuts and sharing stories, with Mr. Poe even stating how nobody understands him.
  • Mr. Poe is outright against the House of Crime and Transgressions, though considering his track record of failing to catch Count Olaf, the House doesn't really take him seriously as a threat.
  • Nana Habutae is the only deity in the Pantheon who feels pity for Poe at all, since they're both terrible judges of character. Though Poe doesn't see himself as that at all, since he's still delusional enough to think he's a good banker and that nobody understands him.
  • It should be noted that while Poe is terrible when it comes to protecting the Baudelaires, he is at least competent at keeping the Baudelaires' fortune safe. Not to mention he was the best banker at Mulctuary Money Management. He probably might have gotten a job at the House of Commerce if he actually had more common sense.

  • Manning the S.S. LITERALLY Can't Sink are a crew of happy-go-lucky Seals and their Walrus Captain, whose goals are to provide five-star luxury cruises across the Arctic seas. Adorable, precious, and just plain incompetent about their service and work environment. Even the Captain himself is bothered by them being a hindrance every now and then.
  • The list of the Seals' blunders are as follows:
    • Failing to set up boarding platforms to the ship properly, meaning that passengers will have to perform Le Parkour to board.
    • Spilling drinks in very precarious areas, like the very spacious garden with big drops and no stairs.
    • Constantly blocking passageways with passenger baggages and lifeboats.
    • Not fixing the malfunctioning ovens, which are spewing flames.
    • The kitchen in-general is filled to the brim with spills, unwashed dishes, and unattended food scraps.
    • Not fastening the tables, carts, and other furniture to the floor, causing them to slide across the ship.
    • Not supervising the children in the daycare.
    • Blocking the only available bathroom on the ship with toppled over carts.
    • Breaking passenger's belongings (like Hat Kid's Time Piece), with shards of said items being scattered across the ship and ending up in food, drinks, and other miscellaneous objects.
    • Injuring themselves quite often.
    • And above all, being gosh darn cute as heck.
  • Because of this, the members of the pantheon have decided to ascend the Seals as being the heralds of really unsafe work environments. They must wonder how the Captain has managed to put up with their blunders for so long.
  • Hat Kid has proven herself to be a very beneficial ally to the Seals, as she's more than capable of handling numerous tasks around the ship at once. To increase the work load, the Captain decided to hire another platforming expert to help with the tasks: Mario. Being no stranger to multi-tasking himself, Mario accepted the offer and became Hat Kid's co-worker. Together, they were able to complete all the tasks around the ship in double time.
  • Kirby has befriended the Seals in the kitchen, who don't seem to mind having him around even though he's technically a stowaway gobbling up whatever food he can find. At the very least, he's been able to clean-up their unattended mess to make their work environment a bit more bearable.
  • The Inklings are frequent passengers on the S.S. LITERALLY Can't Sink, often holding paint battles on the deck. These games always leave a mess of paint all over the ship that never gets cleaned up.
  • Ever since Hat Kid took control of their ship and accidentally crashed it into an iceberg, the Walrus Captain is very wary of leaving the steering wheel unattended to take a break again. One particular deity he is especially concerned about is SpongeBob Squarepants because of his infamous boating skills, and really doesn't want the yellow sponge to go anywhere near the steering wheel and wreak havoc with the whole ship. He's been keeping an eye on SpongeBob every time he boards the ship since.
    • Lord Fredrik likes to claim he's the one responsible for placing the iceberg there in the first place. It's (probably) a lie, but regardless, the Captain keeps tabs on him and is much more careful where he steers the ship when he's near, just in case. This has had the unintended side effect of making it much easier for certain deities like the Snatcher to sneak aboard the ship while he's distracted.
  • Among their ranks, a strange blue seal with a Rudolph-like red nose and only speaks her name is found mingling around the swimming pool. The Captain has no idea how she snuck aboard the ship, but since the other Seals don't seem to mind her company, he let it slide just this once considering that he allowed Hat Kid (technically an unregistered passenger) help out with their tasks. The blue seal is now seen helping out with lifeguard duty.
  • They've found a worthy crewmember in the form of Saoirse, but they can only hire her for a part-time position, both because she's young and because she's a selkie, a human that transforms into a seal. She's the only seal who does any meaningful work around the ship, often with the aid of her brother, Ben.
  • Ever since the Survivor Crew boarded the ship for the first time, the ship has been crawling with zombies everywhere. The Captain, desperate to get rid of them, banned the Survivors from getting on the ship again. It didn't do much good. Nowadays, the zombies have become pretty much a standard thing on the ship, and Sebastian no longer goes anywhere near it, as it brings back unfortunate memories of a similar event on the Campania.
  • Considering the ship's Ironic Name and the fact that it did sink from an iceberg, the Seal crew is objected by those who experienced the Titanic's maiden voyage. Especially Rose and Jack, since the sinking of the Titanic ended up costing the latter deity's life. It also doesn't help that the ship's name; S.S. LITERALLY Can't Sink, echoes the Titanic's own nickname; The Unsinkable.
    • Cal Hockley expressed the same objections as well, but also added that the Seals' idea of "first class service" is a complete joke and doesn't compare to the service offered by the White Star Line liner.
  • Eventually, the truth of what happened with Hat Kid sinking his ship came to light, thanks to a unexpected source; The Empress. She has some severe hatred for Hat Kid ever since she halted her operations, and wanted to get revenge by shrinking her friend group, go so far as to read the diary entry over the loud speaker. This ended up causing Hat Kid to become speechless and run away in tears before the Walrus Captain could even say anything. He scolded The Empress for being so hostile, and said that even if Hat Kid did crash the ship into the iceberg, she obviously felt some regret for it judging by how she reacted.
    • It took a while, but Hat Kid did come back to the ship, bringing along someone with her; his old mentor. Turns out she wanted to make amends with him and asked for some help with other deities to bring up his dead mentor as his high priest. She also explained her side of the story, saying how she needed the time pieces for her own ship and that she really didn't mean to crash the ship into the iceberg, being too used to how her own spaceship controlled and not expecting his ship to be so different. Touched by her actions (and giving a bit of playful snark at her reasoning and saying he should have expected the most capable person on his crew to be the one behind the crash), he forgave her and sent her out to do some more tasks around the ship to give him some time to catch up with his mentor, even giving her the diary the empress stole back to her. On the teacher's part, he's happy to help keep his former student company and to help him reign the seals in, but also makes the Walrus captain put down the cigarettes and clean his look up.
