- Vanitas is the enigmatic and mysterious second-in-command to Master Xehanort, who wound up clashing against Master Eraqus's three apprentices, Aqua, Ventus, and Terra when the three students were investigating a series of attacks by mysterious creatures known as the Unversed all across different worlds while Vanitas aimed to aid his master in recreating the χ-blade, an ancient Keyblade that had the power to open Kingdom Hearts. During their final battle, it was revealed that Vanitas was, in fact, the personified darkness of Ventus's heart given physical form and that he was the originator and creator of the Unversed. Despite being able to recreate the χ-blade with Master Xehanort's aid, Vanitas was defeated with the combined efforts of Ventus, Aqua and King Mickey Mouse and was subsequently faded away in darkness to be merged back with Ventus, though Xehanort did succeed in taking over Terra's body to use for the next couple of years.
- Vanitas would eventually resurface, being handpicked by Master Xehanort as part of his XIII Seekers of Darkness in another effort to recreate the χ-blade. It was also around this time where he would properly meet Sora for the first time and while their initial battles were interrupted by the sudden disturbance of Sully and Mike in Monstropolis and Aqua in the Land of Departure, Vanitas would finally face off against Sora and Ventus in the Keyblade Graveyard as the two made their effort to stop Master Xehanort. Defeated and knowing that he would have to return to his original defeat years ago, Vanitas admitted that he was darkness and that he long accepted the villainous self that he was born into. Shedding away any condescending remarks, he somberly turned down Sora and Ventus's pleas of turning good and decided to admit defeat and fade away for good.
- Vanitas ascended into the Pantheon sometime along with Master Xehanort, though the exact circumstances of this remains a mystery, seeing as Vanitas has proven himself to be a rather enigmatic figure who doesn't bother to elaborate on circumstances for most of the time, instead choosing to bide his time and wreak havoc. That said, it is rather likely that Vanitas was bought along as Xehanort was keen on bringing along a fellow collaborator into this new realm and that Vanitas, being a personal apprentice of his, was among the best that he could consider.
- Despite this, Vanitas in the Pantheon has been actually independent of Master Xehanort and instead acts on his own accords and desires. Most would actually consider that this would mean Vanitas would be more open to causing more chaos and mayhem, but instead, many were surprised to see that he had become a lot more reserved and mellow during his time in the Pantheon. This was especially evident after his fight against Sora and Ventus in the Second Keyblade War, in addition to having had some time in the Pantheon "growing up" in a sense, which has allowed Vanitas to become somewhat more introspective and philosophical about himself and his beliefs. He's still a crazed battle maniac who will relish in making a dreaded mess, but it is clear that Vanitas has changed in a sense, though the only way he expresses this is his more quiet, reserved, and near-affable demeanor that he developed in the Pantheon.
- Ever since the final defeat of Master Xehanort, Vanitas has barely mentioned his former superior and instead chose to continue on being a malevolent figure. Oddly enough, both had the same goal of destroying worlds, but this was where their desires deviated; whereas Xehanort wanted to experiment and calculate his research and methods in an effort to, in his own words, balance out light and darkness, Vanitas was instead more invested in destroying worlds for the sake of it and finding a powerful opponent to face off against. Not to mention, with Xehanort and his incarnations having gone silent and inactive from the Pantheon, almost as if they've disappeared, Vanitas is now the most dangerous deity from his native realms to have come to the Pantheon.
- There's one more thing he's since wanting to get back on, finishing what he started in Monstrolpolis and get his payback towards Mike and Sully from foiling his plans. Though he's not exactly pleased to learn that Mike and Sully have a lot of friends to help them out, Sora and Ventus included. He also doesn't take it kindly when someone tries to call Vanitas out for retreating when he very easily could have just resurfaced and attacked Mike and Sully. That said, those two aren't really his main interests, though they're still sore spots for him, Vanitas does desire to take over Monstropolis as the energy output it makes from children's screamings via fear is a potential creation ground for more Unversed. He's biding his time, waiting for the right time to strike.
- Outside of Xehanort himself, Vanitas might just be the biggest threat from the realms that he comes from. Wielding the Void Gear Keyblade with fast, unpredictable, and chaotic blows and attacks and combined with his bloodthirsty nature, it's more than justified why so many are rather hesitant to consider making contact with Vanitas, let alone fight against him. And that's not getting into the fact that he can create the Unversed through his negative emotions, effectively making him a literal One-Man Army. While not going out to ridicule someone or randomly attacking someplace for his own amusement, Vanitas would normally lounge around the Houses of Fighting and Combat, Military and Warfare, Power and Abilities and Weapons, looking to test his blade against someone and to sharpen his Keyblade skills. Predictably, no one really likes him.
- While he prefers to do things on his own, the fact that all of his enemies have someone to rely on or have a strong bond with made Vanitas realize that he would be needing allies to even out the score with. Because of his knack of wanting to spread misery and mayhem, he found himself getting along with The Joker pretty well. The Clown Prince of Crime was impressed by Vanitas's flair, seeing as the latter's ability to create the Unversed anywhere and anytime means that he can cause chaos at whichever place he is in and without urgency was a good way to pull off a theatrical show, in The Joker's mind that is. Vanitas also finds Joker's sense of comedy to be appreciable as it goes along with his sadistic ways of mocking and attacking others.
- When it came down to alliances, Vanitas initially considered the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, if primary because Master Xehanort set up his allegiance there and Vanitas's utmost desire was destruction. However, once word got out of Darkseid establishing his own faction in the Harbingers of Repression, he was intrigued to discover how the Lord of Tyranny was aiming to subjugate every one of his foes to submissive torment. The fact that Darkseid was cold and calculating like Xehanort, yet no less sadistic and rage-filled like his meant that he was someone that he would find an easy time working with. While not too interested in the Anti-Life Equation, Vanitas was inducted in the Apokiliptian Blitz section, as Darkseid found promise and potential in him. Also, the sheer anger and malice drawn by the God of Apokolips mean that Vanitas can create a larger army of Unversed than before. He's since become a bigger threat than he was before.
- While he simply clashes against Aqua and Terra, who hate him with all of their guts for how much he was hunting and tormenting them for his own amusement, Vanitas is shockingly more civil towards Ventus, though it doesn't change the fact that they're still hostile to one another. Being that Vanitas is the literal darkness of Ventus's heartnote , he sees himself as Ventus's brother or at least the dark side to Ventus's light. By extension, Vanitas also associates this with Sora, given how he was chosen to be Ventus's successor. They will clash and battle every now and then, and Vanitas does intend on taking over Ventus's heart, but he does come to see the two as Worthy Opponents and forgoes his condescending nature by being as much of a good sport as possible. He does affirm, however, that he is a willing advocator and user of Darkness, so regardless of him being nicer than usual, Sora and Ventus do concede that Vanitas is a threat that has to be dealt with.
- As he is a being empowered by hate, Vanitas naturally feels drawn to the House of Hatred and Rancor, where, to the shock of many, he can express as much rage and frustration as he could, which further accelerates his creation of the Unversed. It's since become a safe zone for Vanitas to often drop by and relieve himself in a rather creative and dangerous way. A good deal of deities have attempted to find ways to stop Vanitas from entering the House of Hatred, but there's been little success on the matter. At one point, there was a massive surge in Unversed population which many of the heroic deities have tried to quell off. Some villains found this rather amusing and think Vanitas makes a great sporting deity for them. One exception is Zamasu, who quickly proclaimed Vanitas as a being "born of sin and condemned to do nothing but sin". In essence, Vanitas's very existence infuriated Zamasu... and Vanitas only enjoyed it more.
- On the subject of hate, Vanitas did display one sort of Valor; being resilient and battling to the very end. This was something that the Blood God, Khorne, really appreciated and at one point, offered Vanitas an invitation to the Hounds of War. While the proposal was interesting, Vanitas declined; fighting and more fighting gets boring at times, especially without some free time to gleefully mock and brutalize his victims psychologically and emotionally. It's why he ended up favoring the Harbingers of Repression at the end of the day as his superiors are welcome to let Vanitas indulge in his sadism, so long as it doesn't compromise Darkseid and the other leading generals. Naturally, Khorne didn't take this well, though isn't giving up in trying to get Vanitas to his side.
- Aside from hatred, another negative emotion that Vanitas reacts to strongly is jealousy. This stems from how, as he shares a connection to Ventus, he can technically see and feel anytime the latter is feeling joyful and peaceful to be with his friends and be given as much support and admiration as he could. To say this didn't affect Vanitas badly would be an understatement. With jealousy having a strong relation to anger and hate, Vanitas was inclined to visit the Hall of Jealousy and Envy where he expresses some bliss in letting out his negative emotions and practicing how to weaponize them. The Emotions, learning of just how much of a crazy madman Vanitas is, have tried to find ways to stop him, but the dark Keyblade Warrior's newfound allies have made the effort more difficult.
- Vanitas's very character and reputation caught the interest of Yuuki Terumi, a psychopathic madman who sought to torture, ridicule, and demean everyone he came across partly because he enjoys being evil and partly because it is the hatred of others that sustains his lifeforce. Additionally, his desire to destroy the universe and remake it in his own vision stems from the fact that he is the God, Susano'o. This would have been a nice collaboration, seeing how the two have a strong kinship... but their loyalties towards differing leaders placed a wedge to that. Terumi being Zamasu's best supporter meant that having a connection to someone who works in Darkseid's ranks would frustrate the Fallen Kai, so it was best that their relationship was best to be managed without angering each other's parties too much. Vanitas and Terumi still maintain some respect for each other's malice and hate and would sometimes compete against one another without wholly antagonizing the other out of good sport.
- He also found a good working relationship with Vaati, a sorcerer of dark magic who took an interest in the darkness of peoples' hearts and seeked to exploit this to his own advantage, in addition to wanting to become a Hylian to secure his conquest of Hyrule. Seeing how Vanitas, an artificial being, has an incredibly dark heart that fueled his innermost desires and motives certainly intrigued him and wanted to test them out. After a tough fight, Vaati and Vanitas came to see how similar they were in some respects and proposed an alliance, an act which furthered Link's animosity towards the dark Keyblade User.
- While a maniacal and insane being, Vanitas is rational and understanding enough to bide his time, wait and be civil whenever he can be. As a result, he tends to find a hard time coordinating with those who are far too insane and driven my madness to work around with, such as Konrad von Carstein and Gregor Clegane, who are fellow bloodthirsty warriors who live to kill and butcher. While their ferocity and fear factor impresses Vanitas, they're also prone to sometimes being deficit regarding orders and thinking rationally about something, which often results in frustrating attempts for the three of them to be working together. Konrad and Gregor, however, do possess enough hatred to produce a powerful set of Unversed, so while working with them is ridiculously hard, Vanitas does find some sort of use regarding them.
- By contrast, and to his own surprise, Vanitas found some measure of respect towards Broly. The fact that the Legendary Super Saiyan is actually capable of understanding his situation and trying to make full use of what is given to him was a welcoming thought for the dark Keyblade user, not to mention how the potential darkness Broly carries within is so potent that keeping track of him was somewhat of a necessity. Broly also saw Vanitas as a fellow strong being to work with and the idea of the two forming an alliance caused concern for the Z-Fighters, especially Goku, whom Broly has a high amount of Irrational Hate towards. Perhaps Vanitas can learn something regarding the Saiyans and figure what he can do to fight stronger beings.
- Vanitas initially felt that Dr. Jekyll wasn't worth his time, but after hearing about the connection of Mr. Hyde, he quickly expressed interest and sought to unravel more about the split-personality phenomena. He took his time to wait until Jekyll lapsed into his Hyde persona before confronting him. Learning of the idea of permanently splitting off from his human side, Hyde quickly sought to ally with Vanitas in the hopes of achieving this goal. If Ventus had this event happen to him, then why Hyde shouldn't go through it. Vanitas does see him as a useful comrade to have, especially when he needs a fellow brute to assist him, plus the addition of more carnage simply amuses him. That said, despite mutually liking one another, once Jekyll regains control, he immediately ditches Vanitas to his own devices, which annoys the dark Keyblade User. Incidentally, it also further motivated Vanitas to try finding a way to split Jekyll and Hyde from one another; he cannot afford to lose someone who could be of use to his plans after all.
- One of the few allies outside the Harbingers of Repression is Dark Link, who as the shadowy doppelganger of Link feels as if they have something in common, given that they are a personified sort of darknesses to a well-known hero. Dark Link feels as if Vanitas is a much-needed partner to have regarding his own feud against Link and generally, the two get along well, with the former seeking to improve his swordplay and become stronger under the latter's supervision.
- Despite his good relations with Dark Link, Vanitas had more than enough problems in trying to get along with other dark counterparts. One of them was Dark Pit, a mirror version of Pit created by his Arch-Enemy, Medusa. However, rather than becoming evil, Dark Pit was born with a consciousness of his own and set off to seek his own path. While aloof and sometimes abrasive, even Dark Pit knew not to associate himself with Vanitas. He's had enough experience fighting against evil beings and Vanitas being a crazed madman wasn't going to be in his favor. Jeanne d'Arc Alter was initially considered by Vanitas as a potentially good ally to have, but those chances were dashed when she caught on with Vanitas's attitude and motives. Vanitas was infuriated, but this wasn't the primary impetus; Jeanne Alter, for all her feuds against the original template wishes to see her happy and well and wants to take care of the Master of Chaldea, which greatly contrasted against Vanitas's raving jealousy towards Ventus and having to live being motivated by hatred and to accept his physical and psychological darkness. Vanitas has since made efforts to attack and torture the Master of Chaldea in the hopes of coercing Jeanne Alter to join his cause, though she (alongside many others) have had to chew out on Vanitas that what he's doing is nothing more than pissing Jeanne Alter off even further and increasing their animosity. And he keeps trying, to everyone's dismay and frustration.
Elmer C. Albatross
Elmer C. Albatross, God of Sociopaths With Moral Codes (Child of Calamity and Light, Smile Junkie, Mr Happy End(ing), El, El-El, Elross)
- Intermediate God
- Symbol: His smile
- Alignment: Neutral Good in actions, True Neutral in intentions
- Portfolio: Dissonant Serenity, Too Terrifying for Fermet, Clinical Sociopath Who Nonetheless Has a Clear Moral Code, Incorruptible Pure Pureness, motivated For Happiness, No Empathy for People But Incredibly Sympathy, The Anti-Nihilist, From a Single Cell, Keet, Dark and Troubled Past, Conditioned to Accept Horror
- Domains: Happiness, Smiles, Sociopathy, Morality
- Interests: Nerose Satanel
- Respected by: Solf J Kimblee, Dexter Morgan
- Allies: Claire Stanfield, Herr Doktor Tenma, the Grand United Alliance of Good, Morty Smith, Princess Uni-Kitty, Wander (Wander over Yonder), Emperor Calus
- Enemies: Tenebrae, Johan Liebert and The Joker. To a lesser extent, those who want to end happiness.
- Uncertain opinion from: Iroque
- An old friend of Huey Laforet, Elmer C. Albatross is a man who looks to see a smile on everyone's faces. He comes off as kind if eccentric, but there's always a bit off on him. He was among those in the Advena Avis who gained immortality, and has always had an impressive pain threshold. You'd never guess at first glance he's a sociopath, but he has a strong moral code regardless of his Lack of Empathy.
- Believes everybody deserves happiness, period. You could be the noblest soul or the most depraved. Cosmos and Melkor alike, with Elmer only nominally opposing the latter because he is far more limiting for that goal than the former. And with potent immortality, he has all of time to achieve that. He only considers those who actively oppose happiness to be his true enemies, such as Melkor and Darkseid, but doesn't have genuine disdain for them at all.
- It's easy to consider The Sociopath a Villain by Default due to lacking empathy and remorse, but Elmer proves you don't need empathy to have a reason to benefit society and other people. It just means your heroic acts are inherently selfish. Indigo-1 doesn't know what to think of this; half of the point of the Indigo Tribe's HeelFace Brainwashing is to redeem sociopaths under the thought they were incapable of doing so themselves. However she admires his altruistic, if selfishly motivated goals and worries forcing empathy on him might compromise that.
- Not the only sociopath with a moral code in the pantheon, though he does have the closest to a conventional moral code. He has Kimblee's respect for the dedication to his principles and being principled in general despite not caring about anyone. Dexter Morgan respects him as well given his own dedication to his own code, although recent analysis has shown unlike Elmer Dexter is sociopathic in tendencies, not completely so.
- There are far more worse people with Moral Sociopathy, but their opinion on Elmer is "I don't give a damn about him". Zamasu being an exception, though that's because of general contempt for mortals. He has much bigger fish to fry, though some tiny part of him admits they're not so different in one respect; they want to do what they think is right, even if they don't actually care about people. Beyond that and his hatred towards mortals, he simply scoffs that a mortal would sully things by possessing immortality that "gods alone deserve".
- Why does he think Good Feels Good when he doesn't care about people? Because the universe is meaningless, so why not? Very much the opposite of the Comedian, a fellow sociopath who's nihilism is "make fun of it all because there's no meaning". Morty has come across a similar position to Elmer, which he likes. Elmer doesn't care much for the more cynically nihilistic Rick, though.
- Doesn't get Cyrus. Cyrus argues that a World of Silence is a world where people are content and can progress, but Elmer thinks getting rid of all emotion, including happiness, would make it All for Nothing. Recent events have made Cyrus less passionate about it than before. By contrast he agrees a lot with the views of Emperor Calus on the universe. And Emmet Brickowski on life in general.
- Every single one of Elmer's enemies in the Pantheon came to be because of what Elmer is. Like Fermet in Elmer's home universe, Elmer is completely immune to whatever suffering they might try to put him through. The only one who has yet to break under the pressure of trying and failing to torture Elmer was Johan Liebert, whom sees Elmer as his second worthiest opponent after Tenma. While Elmer is motivated For Happiness, Johan is the sociopath as most of pop culture sees the condition; being an inherently wicked and cruel person.
- Some wonder if Elmer may be the anti-thesis of the Joker. No matter what the Joker put him through (given that Elmer's immortal, he can be put through a lot), he could not give Elmer a "bad day", going so far as to give up on torturing Elmer. The Joker's sociopathy makes him a Straw Nihilist, while Elmer's leads him to be equally kind to others. He annoys the sadistic psychopath Ramsay Bolton due to his inability to suffer, despite his immortality making him last far longer.
- He applauded Herr Doktor Tenma for placing his personal happiness above the demands of his job, even if it meant saving Johan Liebert's life. Tenma does not know what to make of Elmer, whom he considers eerily similar to himself. The one difference between the two is that Tenma is genuinely incorruptible; Elmer simply has nothing to corrupt. While he wishes the man had empathy, he is glad he wants to live as if he had it in abundance.
- Is a rather eerie and aloof member of the GUAG. He believes Good Feels Good, but his lack of guilt and compassion can make that...askew. He wants people to be happy, even if it's doing cruel things in a Pay Evil unto Evil fashion. He sides with the GUAG because of all alliances, they will lead to the most happiness, and not the idea it's the right thing to do. Well, not how they see it.
- Elmer's Dissonant Serenity has him often be welcome in the House of Calmness, but he prefers the House of Happiness since his goal is making everyone smile. He has become very close to Uni-Kitty and especially Wander, agreeing wholeheartedly in the latter's mission. Nerose Satanel thinks he could be a potential disciple, though it's unclear how Elmer might regard just how the Hadou God achieves cosmic happiness.
- Functionally immortal. Basically has Complete Immortality, and can only die if absorbed/assimilated by another immortal. The Sith Emperor, who's depravity is reflected by his path of immortality, wants to hijack and take control of his body while manipulating Szilard Quates to get rid of the immortals who could absorb this form. Voldemort was simply annoyed by Elmer, who isn't affected by his Cruciatis because of apathy towards his own pain and has a form of immortality he wants. Also, his narcissistic belief "only I can live forever" and extreme confusion that a sociopath is still motivated to do good, unlike him.
- A pure soul, but out of apathy rather than overwhelming empathy. Much like Tom Bombadill Elmer could just ignore the One Ring, and much like Tom he'd be too unreliable to keep it on his person. Larfleeze was a bit spooked that the orange light had no pull on Elmer, simply because of sheer disinterest. In fact he wishes Larfleeze would take his ring off, pointing out that it has never truly made him happy. The Orange Lantern ignored this and laughed at the idea of him ever giving up the ring.
- Why is he like the way he is? Part of it comes down to his background: he was born in a cult where his only purpose was suffer and be tortured to shoulder the sins and misfortune of the world. Not so different from the Avenger Angra Mainyu, actually. Sometimes they talk about it, but otherwise keep their distance.
Lambda-11, Goddess of Blank Slates (The Mechanical Soul)
- Intermediate Goddess
- Symbol: Her eight swords crossed behind her visor on top of her emblem.
- Theme Song: Awakening the Chaos, An Eternity of Battle, Reawakened, Alive. When not fighting, Gentle Feelings.

- Domains: Swords, Prototypes, Calmness, Emptiness
- Superior: Kokonoe A. Mercury
- Telos Operatives: Labrys, The Green Biker Dude
- Rest of Liberion Arcadia: Epsilon, Sage Harpuia, Dr. Ciel, Hidden Phantom, Fighting Fefnir, 2B, 9S, ICEY, Quote and Curly Brace, Fairy Leviathan
- Ragna the Bloodedge, Noel Vermillion (her younger sister), Makoto Nanaya, Reptile, Nanoha Takamachi, Fluttershy, Zero, Legion, Aigis, Kai, Grey, Vatista
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Hakumen, Jin Kisaragi, Prometheus and Pandora
- Enemies: Yuuki Terumi, Dr. Weil, Relius Clover, Nu-13 (her other younger sister), Omega
- Ascended after a gambit by Kokonoe took effect, ousting the former God of this position, Shadow Mitsuo, with the aid of the Investigation Team and planting her in his place, all to gain another edge against Terumi in case he manages to get back to the top of his game after his defeat. Kokonoe's only words to Lambda upon her arrival was to tell her to get to her temple and await further orders, though Tager noticed she seemed strangely happy...
- Many a good-aligned god have taken a look at her past and come away deeply saddened by what they've seen. Even some of the evil ones feel a little uncomfortable. Lambda simply goes on as usual, silently and efficiently, though she has started to thaw out of it.
- No one is entirely certain if she is actually the original Lambda or an alternate version of Nu's soul implanted into her body. Lambda herself doesn't know, and Kokonoe's not telling.
- Has spent some time attempting to socialize with her younger sisters. While her time with Noel always end up on sweet, if somewhat awkward (mostly due to Makoto) moments, all efforts to interact with Nu end with her hastily beating a retreat as the Calamity Trigger screams at her to stay away from "her" Ragna.
- Speaking of Ragna, the two of them have on occasion talked with each other, though it's rather uncomfortable to the former due to how much she resembles Nu. Still, after a while he grew to enjoy it.
- After Ragna retreated into his temple due to transforming partly into the Black Beast, Lambda has grown almost completely distant from others, only socializing with her allies and even they occasionally have hard times making her talk. She's also finally begun to see Nu as less of a troubled soul and more as an enemy.
- Jin tries to stay away from her as much as possible, as he doesn't like how she reminds him of Noel. Hakumen avoids her like the plague, though it's for more personal reasons.
- Gets along well with Fluttershy, and while the pegasus was originally scared of her, their similar quiet actions eventually forged a bond, and they occasionally go to the Houses of Beasts and Nature to observe the wildlife in their spare time. Lambda is particularly fascinated by the insects. It might have something to do with the little Tartar she once adopted...
- Nanoha immediately took her aside when they first saw each other face-to-face and told her that she would be her friend someday. One befriending ritual later, and the two spend their free days hanging out together. It's also one of the few times Lambda ever has something other than a frown on her face aside from being around Ragna. It helps that they sound so similar if one disregards their usual tones.
- Has had some discourse with Legion, occasionally speaking on the idea that beings like them have souls. They even, very rarely, play games with each other.
- Aigis feels really sorry for her. Where both of them were built for combat, Aigis was given emotions to operate on, whereas Lambda has no emotions at all. While she doesn't know how to help, Aigis hopes that one day Lambda is able to gain something resembling actual emotions.
- Has a strong relationship with Labrys, due to their similar pasts as prototypes and their hatred for Nu's behavior. Lambda also had Labrys' color.
- Friends with Grey, who sees a lot of himself in her from when he first awoke. He hopes that one day she'll find her own identity, just like he did.
- Allies with Vatista, due in part to their similar nature and weapon of choice.
- Fulfilled Kokonoe's mission parameters when she was confirmed to return to the playing field, with even more differences from Nu. The Evil Laugh of Kokonoe and the angry shouts and swears of Terumi could be heard all throughout the Pantheon.
- Lambda's response: " Leaving now."
- Along with Labrys and Aigis, Lambda received an invite to join an anti-GUAM robot resistance unit called Liberion Arcadia. She and Labrys both looked to Aigis' decision to influence theirs. Minus Aigis herself, due to her job as one of the Shadow Operatives, they eventually joined on her recommendation to acquire safeguards against the Sigma Virus, taking part in the group's public reveal in the process. Kokonoe approved of this, but made sure to give Lambda the order to also get something in place for Tager, who despite being downgraded to Kokonoe's herald could still be a target of the GUAM's plans. Administering the safeguards ended up being standard operating procedure for all non-Reploids who joined the group thereafter
- She and others telling Fairy Leviathan about Nu-13 after Leviathan's ascension caused Lambda to realize that Leviathan was similar to Nu if only Nu had enough sanity to realize that Ragna would never be in favor of destroying everything for the sake of romance. So when Leviathan started sparring with Ragna afterwards, Lambda didn't make a huge fuss, but she did make a note to herself to keep an eye on the situation.
Garfield Lynns, God of Pyromania (Firefly)
- Lesser God
- Symbol: His helmet surrounded by flames
- Theme Music: Firefly
- Alignment: Chaotic Evil
- Portfolio: Insanity, Penchant for Explosives, Crafting His Own Jet Pack and Flamethrower, Love for Fire, "Gotham's Gonna BURN!", Went From a Pyrotechnic Expert to a Criminal
- Domains: Fire, Insanity, Theatrics
- Herald: Ted Carson (his New 52 successor)
- High Priest: Ignus
- Followers: Flame Hyenard, Firebug, Inferno, The Fury
- Allies: The Pyro, Deathwing, Starjun, Azula, Ragnaros The Firelord, Count Olaf
- Enemies: Batman, the Spy, Mononobe no Futo, Most Water Deities and Good-Aligned Fire Deities
- He was formerly a pyrotechnic expert until he was trapped in poverty and was forced into crime. After his first capture, he found his calling for arson, which he believes that he sees visions from the fire.
- There are rumors that he was a man named Ted Carson who murdered Lynns and used him as a scapegoat for his crimes. But, Lynns was generally considered the most recognizable name.
- Is a huge fan of Deathwing's wonton carnage, but the dragon does not care about him. Not that he minds.
- Finds a common friend in the Pyro and quickly made good friends with him, much to the rest of his/her team's horror (especially Spy's).
- As much as he likes Flame Hyenard's shtick, even he is annoyed at him telling his opponent to "BURN! BURN TO THE GROUND!" repeatedly.
- When he heard the news of Ragnaros being ascended into the pantheon, he inmediately rushed to blackrock mountain to meet the firelord personally and join him on his mission. To prove his worth, he showed some of his finest works like the time he inmobilized pioneer bridge or when he managed to bribe a firefighter chief to do his bidding. Impressed by how a mere mortal was so fascinated with the concept of fire he made him into one of his lieutenants. Lynns is still can't believe what just happenned.
- "How do you wanna die? The quick, incinerating flash of an EXPLOSION!? Or a nice, SLOW BURN!?"
Koishi Komeiji, The Goddess Without a Self (The Closed Eyes of Love)
- Lesser Goddess (would be Intermediate Goddess if she had consciousness)
- Symbol: Her closed third eye/heart with yellow and blue roses blooming from its veins
- Theme Music: Hartmann's Youkai Girl (also With Lyrics)
- Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (just barely)
- Portfolio: Closed Mind, Cursed With The Power of Mind Reading And Shutting It, Third Eye, Invisible to Others Aside of Children, Blocking Mind Reading, So-Called Cheerful Child, Manipulation of Subconscious, Non-conscious Fighting, Oxymoronic Being, Hearts and Roses as Projectiles, Stronger Sibling
- Domains: Subconscious, Emptiness, Psychics, Hearts, Roses
- Allies: Satori Komeiji, Utsuho Reiuji, Kellam, Her Hat (it helps her relax <3)
- Enemies(?): Hata no Kokoro
- A satori who had the power of mind reading. Emphasis on "had". Due of the nature of mind readers, humans and youkai alike hate her and her sister. Where her sister locked herself away, Koishi decided to close her third eye to remove her powers... which as a result closed her mind entirely. Now all she does is wander aimlessly without a goal, without a will.
- Used to be Goddess of Subconscious due of her "Embers of Love", but when judges pointed out that her ability to manipulate subconscious goes further than mere penis jokes, gods started to think about her position. In reality, she can make people see whatever she wants them to see, like their greatest fears and inner selves.
- Eventually, due of the nature of her powers is hard to pin-point, she was given one of tropes harboured by Lambda-11 in exchange.
- She is really unwelcome person of House of Mentalism. Her powers allow her to sneak anywhere without being spotted by most people, meaning that she can sneak up to a person plotting their latest schemes and bring up bad thoughts in their mind. Not only that, but her unorthodox fighting style makes it hard to fight her.
- Most gods cannot recall ever seeing her (then again, neither can she) due of her powers. However, there was an incident what caused an item called Mask of Hope to make it possible for people to notice her, even giving her emotions. Unfortunaly, the mask has even since lost its powers and she has returned to her former self.
- The original owner of the mask, Hata no Kokoro used to really want the mask back as losing it caused her emotions to go haywire. Where she might not need the mask, she still tries to get it back from Koishi sometimes.
- If she is going fishing and she is looking for a fishing rod, you better find one quickly! Things got out of control really fast just because of that.
- No, she is not that Hartman's Youkai Girl. Even as a god in House of War, he couldn't be able to do anything to her behaviour.
- Has known to suddenly just call random gods repeatedly, usually only ending when she gets right behind them. She seems to do this as a way to scare people for her amusement, but how effective this is varies between person to person.
Q-Bee, Goddess of Hive Mentality
- Lesser Goddess
- Symbol: A Soul Bee (a miniature version of herself).
- Theme Music: "Iron Horse, Iron Terror"
- Alignment: Chaotic Neutral/Hungry/Stupid
- Portfolio: Figural and Literal Bee People, Cute Monster Girl, Stingers, Authority Equals Asskicking, Non-Mammalian Hair and Breasts, Insect Queen, Extreme Omnivore
- Domains: Bees, Queens, Monsters, Hunger
- Allies: Jedah Dohma, Swarm, Famine the Horseman, Crow
- Enemies: Artix von Krieger
- Rivals: Queen Sectoria
- The queen bee of the Soul Bee race, a race full of quite literal Bee People. She is the queen, the rest of them are workers. Enough for her to weaponize them.
- Her humanoid appearance is to lure humans to her, and most of the humanoid traits might not be real (like her eyes in her face; those orbs on her head are the real eyes). She captures humans and use them for breeding and to be feast upon. When she says she wants to eat you, she means it literally.
- Where Soul Bees can devour everything for substance (like robots), they obviously feast on souls. She usually visits Famine the Horseman to see if he has any spare souls in hand.
- In a state of irony, Hannibal Lecter once captured Q-Bee and tried to eat her. She was able to escape before he was able to severe her completely, resurrect into a new body by injecting a poor victim with eggs and cocooning them, dying and coming back from the eggs. Lecter himself said that she tastes more insect-like than human-like.
- Unfortunately, she is not the brightest person around. Her desire to feed her people has lead to a situation that they were on the verge of extinction due of devouring too many souls, leaving with nothing to eat. That is why gods make sure that her people don't go into a feasting rampage.
- Is in eternal battle with Queen Sectoria and her Sectas. So far, Sectoria is winning.
- Gained an ally within said fight by the name of Crow. This may have to due with how similar Crow views Q-Bee to another Bee princess he once kidnap by the name of Princess Apodia, even finding Sectoria too distasteful for his liking. Not that Q-Bee seems to mind (or maybe isn't even aware, not that she can be blamed for this), still seeing him as a good friend.
- Not to be confused with Kyubey, a.k.a. QB. Not helped by the fact that Incubators eat Grief Seeds, meaning that they eat souls. She once tried to eat him, after which she commented that "Incubators taste horrible". She plans on using them to breed more Soul Bees in the future instead.
Legion, Deity (Deities?) of Mind Hives (Infiltrait0rN7)
- Demideity (or Demideities?)

- Opposed by: Torbjörn Lindholm
- Once Legion had ascended to the pantheon and placed in the House of Mentalism, everyone made Legion the 'Offical Guide' to help visitors around the dark halls of the house because of Legion's 'flashlight' head.
- Like the piece of Shepard-Commander's armor, the M-98 is also special to it (them?). Its only comment is " It is an efficient model."
- Ascended to Godhood when it brought full individual consciousness to all Geth at the cost of its own existence, but Legion lives on as a deity, for this unit has a soul.
- Is known to occasionally drop by the House of Gaming to play some of the games they have there.
- Legion may be new to the whole "having emotions" thing, but one thing is clear: it despises the Incubators. The reason for this is that over the thousands of years the Incubators have been active, they have been manipulating countless numbers of races, taking away their ability to self-determinate, and resulting in hundreds of sapient races' extinctions, while the Geth hold the right to self-determinate as the most important integral right of all sapient life, and its violation a grievous sin.
"Unacceptable methods. Unforgivable transgressions. The ends do not at all justify the means in this situation. Entities designate 'Incubators' violate the right to self-determinate of targeted species, strip sapient races of their right to walk their own path, forcefully manipulate target species' developments to their detriment, steal their target races' futures for their own goals, condemn species to extinction for no true worthy purpose. They are no better than the Reapers."
- Legion (and the true geth as a whole) are also extremely disturbed by the Vex, who they consider a logical extrapolation of what the geth heretics could have become if they were allowed to reverse-engineer the Reapers' indoctrination abilities (among other technologies like Time Travel). It doesn't help that the Vex visually resemble the Geth, and thus the latter sometimes get blamed for the former's actions by those unaware of the difference between them.
- Legion became interested in the red ninja Ermac after hearing he was a similar being like him but the thing that caught his atention the most was that Ermac was an organic being unlike him/them. Legion has been trying to figure out if Ermac is able to comunicate at the same speed as the 1,183 geth programs in Legion's platform.
- With the revelation of Shepard being the Avatar in a different universe, there have been talks of seeing if her/his other squadmates have potential to be benders. Of course, there's a lot more debate regarding Legion, given that it's Artificial Intelligence and whether or not his soul is sufficient to enable bending. Despite that, the geth is reported to have some affinity to air

- Conflicting Opinion: Nagito Komaeda, Monaca Towa, Tohru Adachi (Izuru only)
- Enemies: Junko Enoshima and Monokuma, Tsumugi Shirogane, Tohru Adachi (Hajime only), people with god complexes, all corrupt authority figures
- The two have a rather shocking tale: Hajime, who long desired to be special, volunteered for a project that would make him so. But the cost was erasing his personality, with the new persona being christened Izuru. The pair earned their places in the pantheon after Izuru set up the killing school trip, wherein he reverted to Hajime, who rallied the other students, helped to defeat Junko Enoshima, and returned the SHSL Despairs to their ordinary selves.
- Hajime was very surprised to learn hed ascended, considering himself just an ordinary and uninteresting scrub. Izuru, on the other hand, treated his ascension the same way he treats everything elsewith a dry how boring. The only thing that perked him up a little was noticing that Human Chiaki had also ascended.
- It was originally thought that Izuru was a violent Serial Killer out to destroy the world in the name of despair after Junko Enoshima broke his spirit. It was later discovered that he was only loosely affiliated with her, didnt commit or was framed for many of the atrocities associated with him, and turned on her as soon as she wronged him by executing a certain gamer. That said, hes still hardly a nice person and creeps most of the other deities out by virtue of being utterly impossible to read.
- Due to this, the Future Foundation members watching Hajime to ensure he doesnt relapse have relaxed a bit, as while Izuru isnt harmless, he rarely acts unless provoked. So they dont consider him as much of a threat anymore.
- Their situation, that of being two separate personalities in the same body, isnt a first for their franchise. But unlike Toko Fukawa, who can change her personalities with certain triggers, the two of them did not originally exist at the same time, nor could they switch—Izuru was only created when Hajime was erased, and Hajime only returned when Izuru stepped back.
- After waking up from the Neo World Program, they found themselves reaching an accord and now share their body in harmony. Hajime seems to be controlling their body most of the time, but its implied Izuru is still in there, which accounts for how he can coexist with and take control from him in the pantheon.
- They were both very happy to see Human Chiaki again, and had a rather sweet reunion. She was briefly confused upon seeing Izuru, having met him before but not gotten any answers on his situation with Hajime; once it was explained, she happily welcomed him with open arms as well. Now they spend a lot of time in the Gaming Pantheon with her, as shes the one thing the two of them can agree on liking.
- Hajime isn't exactly sure what to think of Nagito Komaeda. Was he justified in trying to kill everyone? Were they really friends? How much of what he says about himself is true? Does he really have a disease that's eating away at his brain and causing him to act the way he is? They seem to be getting along better after a while though.
- Izurus opinion on Nagito is much more straightforwardhes boring. He does seem a bit wary of him, though, having seen that while his luck can counter Nagitos, Nagitos is still incredibly volatile and dangerous.
- Both Hajime and Izuru were very displeased to find that Junko had ascended, given her very long list of crimes against both the world and them as individuals. However, they know that theres pretty much nothing they can do to pay her back, since she takes pleasure even in losing, so they just try to ignore her.
- Hajime formally asked for forgiveness from Usami upon hearing of her ascension, and thanked her for defeating AI Junko. He also finally got to thank AI Chiaki for everything shed done.
- Due to the fact that they sound identical, Hajime gets along well with Narukami, Cecil, and Ichigo. He also really dislikes Adachi for being, in his words, a nightmarish cross between Izuru and Junko.
- While Hajime just straight-up dislikes Adachi, Izurus relationship with him is more complicated. He does understand being utterly bored with the world; however, Adachis sociopathic and manipulative tendencies remind him too much of Junko for him to truly say he likes him. Adachi, meanwhile, often tries to convince Izuru to join him in livening up the world by killing. Most are reassured that Izuru, having tried that before and found it boring, probably wont be taking him up on that offer.
- About Narukami... let's not forget this line. Yu understands all too well.
- Hajime also ended up becoming friends with Junpei Iori and Takumi Inui, as he understands the formers desire to be special all too well and the latters identity crisis as a result of having split personalities.
- One thing both of them have in common is being a source of many memes. Neither is exactly proud of this.
- Can also be found in Identity Issues.
