Intermediate Gods

Mithra, Goddess of Faith Power (Former priestess of the Seven Deities/Eight Guardian Generals, Daughter)
  • Intermediate God (Actually a potential Overdeity, as she allowed Asura to attain his second strongest form, Mantra Asura)
  • Symbol: Her mantra halo
  • Theme song: Surge of Mantra
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, temporarily Lawful Evil.
  • Portfolio: Kidnapped Daughter, Kindness, being used as a power source despite being a child, Temporarily Possessed by Chakravartin, The Last One Standing
  • Allies: Asura (her father), Madoka Kaname, Amaterasu, Rubick, Bloody Marie, Atreus, Team Dai-Gurren, most of the good deities
  • Enemies: Deus, Chakravartin
  • Odd Friendship: With Alucard (Lords of Shadow)
  • Confused for: Rex, Pyra, and Mythra
  • Mithra is the sole Priestess of Shinkoku and the sole daughter of Asura. She is able to freely manipulate and amplify mantra, the source of the Shinkoku demigods' source of power, through the power of prayer. Prior to the coup d'etat that drove her world into hell, she was one of few who were considered to succeed the Emperor's throne; afterwards, she became a prime target of the conspiratorial forces who sought to control it. All of this, among other things, drove the ire of her father towards every villain involved. She ended up being the last of the demigods left standing, looking no older at 12,500 years old than most would look at about 12, living to narrate the tale of her father and his fellow gods.
  • Ascended to the Pantheon by her father's request. All the leaders of the Pantheon agreed, so long as if they did, they wouldn't piss Asura off and he and his daughter could finally have some well-deserved peace and quiet.
  • Somehow, a golden spider had at one point possessed her, claiming to be the True God, the spinner of life, and the source of all mantra. Asura was pissed, but had to wait until the time came to get her back from being possessed.
  • While technically an Intermediate Goddess, it was her power that allowed Asura to achieve his greatest potential before ascending, so she has potential to be much more important in the grand scheme of things.
  • Her power over faith and using that as a power source is caught the eye of Amaterasu, and it attracts Ammy to her. Both are very friendly towards one another.
  • Due to Asura being her father, and Asura being a very protective parent, harming her is deemed off limits, not to mention utterly moronic, by every god in the pantheon, good or evil. After seeing what happened to Deus and Chakravartin, making her cry is also forbidden, considering this pisses off Asura more than anything else. As a matter of fact, the Chick Magnet Quartet tries its best to stay the hell away from Mithra, since Asura refuses to trust them the slightest bit out of thought they might "corrupt" her. One of the members, Hayate Ayasaki, has learned the hard way when he stumbled onto her while mistaking her for his Ojou-sama. Ironically, this has gotten Asura on the receiving end of someone else's wrath: Hayate's aforementioned Ojou-sama, Nagi Sanzen'in.
    • On that note, Mithra holds the distinction of being the only one that Asura will never get angry at. She doesn't abuse this fact too much, but there have been reports of her convincing him to eat her vegetables. Again. Some of the braver gods have remarked on how cute that is... when Asura isn't around to hear them of course.
  • Would like to ask Asura exactly why she got named after a Persian God. However, it's not clear if she actually was; there is a Vedic deity with a name very close to hers.
  • Bloody Marie originally became allies with her out of a request from her father to keep her away from the Skull Heart. Despite this, the Skullgirl actually found herself enjoying her time with Mithra, who apparently reminds her of herself before she became a Skullgirl...
  • Has formed a bond with the son of Gabriel Belmont, one of the allies of her own father as they both reminisce on the all of the crap both their fathers went through for their sake. Alucard has since taken upon himself to teach Mithra the art of swordsmanship so that she can better defend herself, after some convincing to Asura of course.
    • There have been rumors that she actually has a crush on Alucard, never mind the fact that he's a widower. The greatest minds in the pantheon, both good and evil, have taken every measure possible to make sure that neither Asura nor Gabriel never, ever, EVER find out about it.
  • With her father's permission, Atreus is allowed to be around her after the boy found his father and Asura to be alike. Asura, knowing that Atreus isn't the type to "seduce" Mithra, allowed him to be around her, on the condition he does not make her cry, knowing that he once lashed out at Sindri in anger. Atreus, flinching at the memory, nodded. In a rare moment of snarkiness, Mithra told her father that he really didn't have any room to talk about snapping at people. Asura conceded and the two have been friends ever since.

Ostara, Victim Of Shoehorned Christianity (Easter, Ēostre, Ēastre, Austrō, Ostara of the Dawn)
Drawing by Johannes Gehrts
Ostara in American Gods
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A rabbit and an egg
  • Alignment: True Neutral for her American Gods version
  • Portfolio: Fertile Feet, Cue the Sun, Hijacked by Jesus, Love Goddess
  • Domains: Spring, Dawn, Celebration, Fertility, Plant, Life and Death
  • Followers: Many, many, many deities from different pantheons.
  • High Priest: Many versions of Santa Claus
  • Allies: The Norse Pantheon, but especially Odin, Hades, Tinker Bell, all rabbit deities in the Pantheon especially the Killer Rabbit, the House of Life and Death, the House of Plants, Nicholas Saint North, Elphaba Thropp, chaos
  • Enemies: The House of Technology, Maleficent, YHVH, the other Hades, the Wicked Witch of the West
  • Opposes: Any Christian-related deities in the Pantheon, especially the All-Mighty, Chernabog, Ares, The Divine Power
  • Opposed by: King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Arturia Pendragon
  • Complicated Relationship with: The House of Health and Diseases, the House of Ruin and Destruction
  • The goddess whose celebration was co-opted to be a Christian holiday, Ostara was selected to represent victims of shoehorned Christianity because her symbols and celebration practices (namely, the Easter bunnies and the Easter eggs) are still VERY popular and is frequently used to represent the holiday.
    • She narrowly beats out Santa Claus for the position when Ostara herself points out that there is a version of her that represent the temple in all of its implication as well as points out that the current popular version of Santa Claus is based on a Christian saint.
  • Because of her position, she is NOT on the best term of any and all Christian-related deities. They agree to just avoid each other as much as possible.
    • With that said, she absolutely despises YHVH for actively shoehorn Christianity into other religion and his obsession for control.
    • On the other hand, while she sympathizes with the Divine Power for their situation and hatred against YHVH, she doesn't like their extreme method and their disdain for human.
  • Is incredibly happy that she met her fellow Norse gods in the Pantheon, especially Odin since he is much nicer here than his American Gods counterpart.
    • On the other hand, she avoids contact with Chernabog, citing that this portrayal is too different from the god she knew, as well as the fact that she thinks his "celebration" is a little bit over-the-top for her taste.
  • Has a VERY complicated relationship with both the House of Health and Diseases and the House of Ruin and Destruction. On one hand, Ostara is a fertility goddess and symbolizes spring and the harvest. On the other hand, her American Gods counterpart's action of taking away spring through killing off plant life in America made her controversial in the former and admired in the latter.
    • However, this duality and her Neutral alignment has made her a frequent visitor the House of Plants and the House of Life and Death.
  • Despite beating out Santa Claus for the position, she is good friends with the Guardian version of Santa since the latter is amused when visiting other versions of Santa Claus at her temple.
  • As the goddess whose sacred animals and symbol of celebration is a rabbit, she is a protector of any and all rabbit deities in the Pantheon. One of them, the Killer Rabbit, is now employed as her temple bodyguard, which has not endear her with King Arthur and his knights as well as Artoria.
  • Is on good terms with the Disney/Smite version of Hades since both of them are victims of the same treatment. The fact that he is vilified despite being one of the nicest one in Greek mythology only made Ostara angrier.
    • On the other hand, she hates the other Hades when the latter mocks her for choosing such a cutesy animal such as rabbit as a symbol. Ostara promptly shuts him up when she kills off plant life surrounding him and sic the Killer Rabbit out.
    • While she sympathizes with Ares for having been a victim of the same treatment, his original function of representing chaotic war leaves a bad taste in Ostara and she promptly cuts off all connection with him when learning this.te
  • Is VERY suspicious of the House of Technology due to the fact that her American Gods versions's experience with the New Gods representing globalization, media and technology.
  • Is a good friend with Tinker Bell since she is the symbol of spring and sexuality as well as the fact that she shares the same voice with one of her best friend Rosetta.
  • Elphaba almost falls to her knee when heard that her friend Glinda has ascended to the Pantheon due to her similar appearance to Ostara. While disappointed that isn't the case when meeting Ostara, the two becomes friends over their experience of being misunderstood.
    • The Wicked Witch of the West when heard that her nemesis Glinda ascended went crazy and immediately attacks Ostara's temple. The two of them engage in a battle that lasts for days until the other gods interfere. The two have been on bad terms ever since. The same thing happens with Maleficent because Ostara looks like a version of her.
  • Despite not liking Christianity, she is actually a friend with Jesus because she thinks the guy(s) is just too nice to hate on. This is the reason she finds kinship with other Messianic figures like chaos.

    The Dark Brotherhood 
The Dark Brotherhood, Profane Guild of Candlelit Rituals
Tapestry of the Black Hand
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: Most of the time it’s a black hand print. The Night Mother herself is also applicable as well as an effigy for the Black Sacrament, entrances to the Dark Brotherhood's sanctuaries, or depictions of Sithis.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil as whole. Shades of evil vary individually.
  • Portfolio: Led by the Night Mother, Will welcome any murderer into their Brotherhood of Evil, Evil Is One Big, Happy Family, The Nothing After Death, In the Hood, Assassin business full of Psychos For Hire, Red and Black and Evil All Over, Religion of Evil, Utilizing Purifications to root out betrayers and other conspirators
  • Domains: Assassination, Guilds, Brotherhoods, Cults, The Void, Secrecy
  • Allies/Frequent Employers: Diavolo, Polpo, Brutus, The Corpus, Gaea, Aku
  • Rivals: Most of the Hall of Killers and Assassins in particular the Black Organization, United Assassins Association rankings
  • Enemies: Bucciararti's gang, Jean-Pierre Polnareff, Risotto Nero, The Assassins Brotherhood, Shay Patrick Cormac, Gunvolt, Hassan-I-Sabbah, Night Raid, Akame, The Houses of Law and Justice and Defense, Light Yagami
  • Avoided by: Haru Ichinose
  • Feared by: The House of Ghosts
  • Special Connections: Sheogorath, The Dragonborn
  • Interested in: "Hunter" Series
  • As the sun emerged from the horizon on a chilly morning, a god's murder was discovered. In their temple the victim's was throat slit and agape not unlike a second mouth. In that very same House an hour later a woman's body was found floating in shallow waters, bound and tied in a sack riddled with knife wounds. Another, a man in a hurry, riddled in arrows on a door. As the series of murders continued they were soon traced to an abandoned storehouse far off the House over and when the authorities arrived they found nothing... save for the bizarre sight of a effigy resembling a human body surrounded by a circle of candles. Also in the circle were nightshade, human flesh, and a knife leading to the assumption that it was a ritual for some unholy monster or some hellish vengeful spirit. When word soon broke of their findings it eventually reached the ears of the Dragonborn who out of curiosity requested the records for taken tropes and after some pulled strings they found confirmation: Taking the trope of Candlelit Rituals is the Dark Brotherhood.
  • The Dark Brotherhood are a shadowy order of assassins dating back as far as the Second Era and are a supposed splinter group of the honorable and legal Morag Tong concentrated in Morrowind. Though acting like a cult similar to their bitter rival faction, the Dark Brotherhood operate under a more business-like and pragmatic approach perhaps owed to their activity in multiple regions across Tamriel. The Dark Brotherhood persists because people want other people dead for reason or another and are willing to perform the Black Sacrament where it's their job to send souls to the Dread Father, Sithis. So long as someone of potential is willing to commit murder the Brotherhood will welcome anyone into their fold ill regards to race or gender. Even werewolves and vampires are accepted members. And to that extent they are also willing to take on hits done on anyone through all walks of life. They could be women, they could be children, they could be impoverished Skooma junkies, or they could be of nobility. Little is beyond their reach, and they'll see their contracts to the end.
  • It is no secret that the Dark Brotherhood revere Sithis, but the official head of the group is the Night Mother, the recipient of all contracts from the Black Sacrament. Her origins are, much like the Dark Brotherhood themselves, shrouded. To give an example there are even claims that she is just an aspect of the Daedric Prince Mephala. Whatever the case, bellow her is the Listener who is the only person the Night Mother speaks to. The Listener is a member of the Black Hand with the four other members being the Speakers and their mistress' orders are relayed to them where they select Dark Brother or Sister down the rank best suited for the task. They could be your run of the mill cloak and dagger, they could be a lycanthrope, or perhaps they could even be a hulking brute with a warhammer.
  • A Professional if quirky group of homicidal cutthroats they may be, vilified by just about everyone across the continent of Tamriel, even they have their rules set in place. Keeping their family together are the Five Tenets and they are as follows:
    Tenet 1: Never dishonor the Night Mother. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
    Tenet 2: Never betray the Dark Brotherhood or its secrets. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
    Tenet 3: Never disobey or refuse to carry out an order from a Dark Brotherhood superior. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
    Tenet 4: Never steal the possessions of a Dark Brother or Dark Sister. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
    Tenet 5: Never kill a Dark Brother or Dark Sister. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
    • Exceptions are made to the Tenets when Purifications are put in place in very dire circumstances, such as rooting out traitors and other dissidents in a Sanctuary offering every soul as appeasement to Sithis. The Dark Brotherhood has been around for centuries, and to say they've always been a tight-knit group no matter what would be spitting in the face of historical fact. Be it a splinter group led by a vampire supremacist, or a man hellbent on exacting his long overdue vengeance on the brotherhood; the group has known strife. Indeed, the latter crippled much of the Brotherhood's presence in Cyrodiil thanks to the Night Mother's decision to not tell anyone of their identity. Some say the Brotherhood finally perished during Alduin's return, but others say they continued to operate and persist in the coming years.
    • If you're wondering why the capitalization, the Wrath of Sithis is an actual entity: A wraith taking the form of an old man with a blade sent by the entity itself to hunt down its dissidents the next time they sleep or when they pass away. As the Black Dragon found out herself you do not want to have this thing come after you lest you be dragged off to the abyss from whence it came. Under normal conditions they shouldn't have to fear the Wrath of Sithis, but the House of Ghosts remain weary all the same.
      • Others say the Wrath of Sithis is something along the lines of this.
    "4 the glory......... AHV SITHISSSSSSSSS"
  • The reveal of their existence has troubled the Houses of Royalty, Leadership, and Law and Justice out of everyone, save for the more underhanded and pragmatic individuals, but even then they watch their backs. There is no telling who put a contract on them until it's too late. Their Housemates don't like the idea of sharing a metaphorical roof with the "unique" family either, though the supposed placement and temple may be a front to mask the actual locations of their Sanctuaries. On the flip side of the coin the Brotherhood sees a lot of their use in the House of Crime and Transgressions.
    • One of, if not the first contracts the Dark Brotherhood took in the Pantheon was in the service of Polpo and by proxy his superior Diavolo. The apparent purpose behind the contracts was that there were a group of gods and goddesses that were getting too close to uncovering the Boss of Passione's whereabouts leading his wish to silence them before they got any closer. This probably lead to the above mentioned "introduction" to the Pantheon. The assassins' services under Passione continue, though their mortal enemies were quick to catch on the transgressions.
    • Having heard of their ability to go after Emperors, Brutus contacted them to help deal with an old friend. That friend of course being Julius Caesar, of whom he dealt the fatal blow alongside other conspirators all those years ago. Relishing the opportunity of another notorious hit they accepted and are planning out his demise. Caesar, meanwhile, has upped his security when rumors reached his ears.
    • To ensure that their profits are undisturbed, members of the Corpus' echelons have payed top Credit for the Dark Brotherhood to go after some troublesome opponents. Smaller and/or rival businesses, people spying on their facilities, dogged militants and madmen, and the like. While they're fine with filling their coffers, they do find Nef Anyo's preachings of the void quite annoying and the only reason they haven't turned on him in particular is because they aren't direct insults to Sithis, just mere ramblings.
    • Various members across the House of Beasts and Fauna have prayed to the Night Mother to see through Pokemon Hunter J's death for wrecking havoc on them for so long. Certainly an extreme solution, one that many people point out as such, but the Night Mother wishes to see their pleas answered. One time during a process of planning out their infiltration some of their members had the devious idea of turning the tables on the hunter. As she was fending off the blindingly agile Valstrax they somehow managed to bust out both Teostra and Lunastra where they immediately tried to go after their captor.
    • As vengeance for foiling her plans of enacting the end of the world, Gaea enlisted their help in taking out Percy Jackson and the other Half Bloods. Some gods find the thought of a being like Gaea enlisting the aid of an Anti God's own followers amusing in a way, but the Dark Brotherhood carries on. Word of mouth spread far enough that both they and their allies are alerted of the Dark Brotherhood gunning for them and are expecting them to come, whenever that time may be.
    • Every now and then they get a contract to end the miserable life of Prime Minister Honest, and just as often one may find his corpse strewn about in a number of different ways. Originally it wasn't anything special but with the staggering amount of times they've been sent after him some of their members just up and decided to make it more of a spectacle by either the fourth or fifth time around. For example one time they found his roast corpse crammed inside an oven, his mouth stuffed with an apple... along with various other foods crammed down his throat. There are whispers going around that they plan on doing this with other increasingly common targets, such as with the Coachman. Judging by the sixth contract around ended with him chained up and completely drained of blood after having last been seen in the company of a strange little girl there's a definite truth behind that.
    • They joined the fray of bounty hunters and other hired killers on taking down Samurai Jack by Aku's orders, a feat that has yet to be fulfilled. Persistent as they may be, Jack is no stranger to all manner of attempts on his life and even in battles he does struggle he still manages to pull through. His allies don't make this any easier, at the top of the list being Ashi who herself has a bone to pick with the Dark Brotherhood due to personal experiences.
    • Contracts on Squidward Tentacles are abundant thanks to his fellow gods' disdain towards his god awful clarinet playing. So much so that in a short amount of time it has gotten to the point where a lottery is put in place between Dark siblings to determine who gets the honor of killing him themselves. No word on who won, at least until someone sees a member commit the deed themselves.
  • Originally, the Dark Brotherhood wanted the title of Syndicate Of Secretive Assassinations but they soon found out that they were already beaten by the Black Organization. They, mind you, were also swiftly establishing connections to their fellow ne'er-do-wells by the number. Nevertheless the Dark Brotherhood made their rivalry clear by foiling one of their hits and slaying the assassin in turn. Some say it was apart of a contract, but others say it was but simple spite to show they were definitive competitors in the business and aren't afraid of encroaching on their territory not unlike the Morag Tong. Regardless, the Black Organization seem to be vying for bringing along the Dark Brotherhood's various detractors over the course of history, assuming they haven't already.
    • Aside from them, the Dark Brotherhood has been reported to have gone after those affiliated with the Brave Companions. One could make the distinction that they both share some similarities: Crazed killers working with whoever suits them, though the sellswords certainly outdo the Dark Brotherhood in depravity. That isn't to say the Dark Brotherhood are disgusted enough to gun for them, they were just contracted to do so. Not everyone the assassins go after are textbook definition of saints, and surprise surprise: A whole load of people want them dead. And the Dark Brotherhood are happy to provide.
    • Other assassins tend to be viewed as rivals, if not outright enemies depending on the individual. While the relationship between the likes of Agent 47 are viewed under a lens of a professional rivalry, others like the entirety of Night Raid, Gunvolt, and the Assassins Brotherhood think of them as nothing more than contemptible scum. The Old Man of the Mountain in particular has made his disdain for them clear, what with them choosing to follow an entity like Sithis and all.
  • Though vilified by just about everyone across the continent of Tamriel, the sole exception to this are the Argonians of Black Marsh. The Hist, sentient trees whom they worship and depend on, acknowledge Sithis as the "Original Creator". Thus, Argonians born under the Shadow are taken at birth to be trained as Dark Brotherhood assassins. The order was said to have been wiped out by the fourth era, but the Dark Brotherhood's reemergence in the Pantheon may of rendered this point moot. In any case, there are some suspicions that the Brotherhood seem to have taken an interest in utilizing the Hunter Series of B.O.W.s for their own ends. Apparently they took a liking to the creatures' inherent sadism and killing prowess and found observing them taking on prey to be quite satisfying.
  • If there's anyone in the Pantheon this order of assassins truly despise, Light Yagami would definitely be high up on that list. While some family members were out scouting the Pantheon they came upon the existence of the Death Note and desired it to be theirs for it's potential in carrying out someone's death. At some point they had tipped off Kira and the Knight Templar became a thorn on their side ever since.
  • Having survived assassins in her own classroom out to kill her, Haru Ichinose has tried to avoid their presence whenever she can. Though no one placed a hit on her for the Dark Brotherhood many of its different members would want to entertain the thought of testing her claim to godhood, bodyguard or no.
  • This is probably how shopping goes in the Dark Brotherhood. Probably. Maybe. Possibly. So says some gods and goddesses in the House of Commerce one day anyways.
  • There have been many who have served the Dark Brotherhood over the years, and apparently even some of the heroes across Tamriel's history have worked with them. For example, there are rumors circulating that the Dragonborn was not only apart of them, but a Listener and the one responsible for their survival. Based on the Mad God Sheogorath's ramblings there are hints that he, as the Champion of Cyrodiil, was also a Listener and there for the events that transpired. The implications become more interesting as Sheogorath himself was once described as "Sithis-shaped hole" in the world. Whatever the case may be, it makes people think twice about crossing them if individuals of such revere really were Dark Brothers/Sisters themselves.
  • Believing that they will continue to serve Sithis in the void even after their passing, they find the existence of The Empty and by proxy the Shadow... peculiar. There have been a number of theories going around between supposed connections involving them and Sithis, but these be best left alone.
  • Hail Sithis.

    Elsa la Conti 
Elsa la Conti, Goddess of Unusual Cross Usage (A purifier of evil cursed with immortality)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her combat cross, Crux, held by Koshmar
  • Theme Music: Fault Carol
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Using a Cross As a Weapon, Church Militant, Idiot Hair, Blessed Powers, Immortality, Self-Retribution, Slightly Ditzy, Spirited Competitor, Former Demon Hunter
  • Domains: Crosses, Nuns, Gardening, Holy, Punishment
  • Allies: Other Arcana Maidens: Clarice di Lanza (Fire-Forged Friends), Petra Johanna Lagerkvist, Zenia Valov, Eko, Heart Aino
  • Enemies: Seymour Guado, Claude Frollo, evil demons
  • Opposes: Alexander Anderson
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Nemesis
  • Just what precisely motivated the immortal nun Elsa la Conti to use a large iron cross as a weapon is a question. She just uses one and it seems to work just fine.
  • The moment she stepped into the Pantheon, the first person to come up to her was Clarice, who wanted to make her promise to never leave her side again. Where she said rather bluntly she wouldn't go that far to promise, she still said she would be on her side.
  • She might be a lost Belmont with her usage of cross, whip, holy water, stakes and holy books (and a magical revolver). Then again, who has heard of a female Belmont?
  • She doesn't have a high looks on Anderson due of her own past; when her home was burned down by demons and she took her role as a demon hunter, she hated all demons for what they did and went so far as to distance herself from others so that only her needs to bear the heavy cross of that task. It was until she fought Clarice that she lightened up. Really, if the Vatican was full of people like Anderson, she is glad that she left the Vatican and joined the Celestial Union. She also doesn't have high opinions on Eda.
    • And it's not like she has fully recovered; where she is mild-mannered and straightforward, if a bit airheaded, she is rather strict when she needs to. However, the person she is most strict forwards is herself, finding herself worthless and taking more duties than she really needs to. It takes other people to pull her from that pit.
    • She also hates how her reputation has made some demons either hate her, or attack her on sight, even though she would only wish to do it if they have done something wrong.
  • She likes to visit House of Nature to find new flowers to plant into her garden. She also visits House of Food to buy red bean pastries.
  • There are rumours that she is training under Leon and/or Makoto how to use her weapon. Maybe she will upgrade herself to a second iron cross someday...
  • Like Clarice, she is forever fifteen-years old. She might be immortal, but she is a young immortal. Keep that in mind for the future.
  • Elsa is allies with Hayate Yagami due to Hayate also using crosses in her designs and Hayate's Armed Device, Schwertkreuz translating as Sword Cross.
  • When Elsa found she and Clarice have a similar backstory to Valvatorez and Fenrich in that Elsa and Fenrich were sent to kill Clarice and Valvatorez, they couldn't do it and ended up be befriending them. When Elsa told Valvatorez this, Val and Fenrich became friends with Elsa and Clarice. Fenrich was less than enthused though due to more deities getting closer to Valvatorez.
  • Due of her being the bearer of the Arcana of Punishment, Koshmar. she somehow got roped to be with Nemesis. Where she doesn't hate her, she feels like her judgements are bit harsh. She also made it clear that if she ever would attack Clarice... well, a man is able to determine what requires "punishment".

Getafix, God of Druidic Sickles (Panoramix)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A golden sickle.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolios: Druid, Druidic Sickle, Only Sane Man, Wizard Beard, Not So Stoic, Omnidisciplinary Scientist, Omniglot, Nerves of Steel, Grumpy Old Man, Made of Iron, Distressed Dude,The Smart Guy, Cool Old Guy, Nice Guy, Schoolmarm,
  • Domains: Knowledge, Good, Cunning, Potions, Loyalty, Languages,
  • Allies: Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix, Cacofonix, Unhygienix, Chief Vitalstatistix, Cleopatra VII, Malfurion Stormrage, Once-ler, The Smurfs, Elsa la Conti, Friar Tuck, The Hall of Healers, The Hall of Physicians,
  • Enemies: Marcus Junius Brutus, Vinsmoke Judge, The Mad Doctor, Prince John, The Weird Sisters,
  • Worthy Opponent: Julius Caesar.
  • Rivals: Doctor N. Brio, Plague Knight,
  • Disliked by: Dyntos, Hephaestus, Rodin.
  • Respects: Yen Sid.
  • Of interest to: The members of the halls of Fields of Science, Scientists and Geniuses and Drugs and Pharmaceuticals, Leshy.
  • Getafix is the Indomitable Village's druid, former teacher, a wise old man who's gives advice to the villagers. He is capable of creating many potions using both science and magic with various effects such as healing wounds and erasing memories. He is well known for using his Golden Sickle to gather any ingredients he needs such as Mistletoe for his potions. He is the only person who knows what the recipe is for the magic potion that gives the Gauls their powers.
  • The houses of Science and Magic have been trying to reverse-engineer Getafix's Magic potion from Obelix's fluids, to no success. So they decided to have the Magic Potion's creator ascended in order for them to get the formula from him. In order to do so they poisoned Vitalstatistix with some of Unhygienix's fish. Counting on the fact that Vitalstatistix would call for Getafix to cure him. Getafix arrived at the Pantheon and used his Golden Sickle to collect the ingredients needed to cure Vitalstatistix. Now that Getafix was in Pantheon, the houses of Science and Magic immediately made sure that Getafix got the role of God of Druidic Sickles in order to ensure that Getafix stayed in the pantheon as a permanent member.
  • While Getafix has not stated what the full recipe for the magic potion is, he has let slip what some of the ingredients are. Some members of the halls of Fields of Science and Scientists and Geniuses are trying to recreate the magic potion. This has led them to ordering Mistletoe cut by a golden sickle, a few roots, four leaf clovers, fresh fish, rock oil, beetroot juice, carrots, salt, and lobster. Getafix has suggested not using rock oil because beetroot juice works better and is better for the environment.
  • The recipe for the magic potion is only found in Getafix's brain. The knowledge of the recipe has been passed from druid to druid through word of mouth. Therefore the only people in the Pantheon that Getafix could pass it to are the Druids Malfurion Stormrage and Leshy. However Getafix only intends to tell his successor as the Village's druid the recipe, so he will not tell either of them what it is.
  • One problem that Getafix still has to deal with despite ascending into the Pantheon is Obelix trying to get a taste of the magic potion. Getafix keeps reminding Obelix that he can't have any since he fell into a cauldron of magic potion as a child and when he drank a cauldron of magic potion he turned to stone and it took all of Getafix's skills to get him back to normal. Despite that fact Obelix still keeps trying to have a taste of magic potion, when Getafix refuses to give him he tries to disguise himself as someone else with a different hat called Xilebo. Getafix always sees through Obelix's disguise so he doesn't give him any magic potion, this does lead to Obelix wondering how Getafix managed to see through his disguise.
  • The other Indomitable Gauls in are grateful for the magic potion, they are well aware that they wouldn't stand a chance against the Romans without it. Getafix in turn is grateful that Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix are willing to go on adventures to rescue him, get some ingredients or get him a new Golden Sickle. He likes that the Gauls can release some stress by having a fish fight as long as there is still some fresh fish left for the magic potion. Getafix has been seen having meetings together with fellow members of the Village Council Cacofonix and Chief Vitalstatistix in order to ensure that any major problems are dealt with.
  • Among Getafix's various creations is a potion that makes acorns grow trees quickly once they are planted in the ground. This immediately interested the Once-ler who hoped that Getafix could do the same for the Truffula seed. He was planning on using the seed to grow a new Truffula wood to try to repair some of the damage the Once-ler has done. Unfortunately for the Once-ler the potion doesn't work outside of the Pantheon or Getafix's home world, so he can't use it to fix the damage the Once-ler has done to his world.
  • The tree growing potion is of interest to the members of the House of Plants who are using it to grow lots of trees. There were a few mistakes in using the potion, several deities just poured it in a hole with nothing happening with Getafix explaining that they needed to treat the seeds with the potion. Others had put multiple treated seeds in same hole creating hybrid plants. The Smurfs were asked to be careful with the potion, incase they accidentally end up at the top of a newly grown tree.
  • Many members of the Pantheon were worried when it came to light that Getafix was Cacofonix's predecessor. Thankfully Getafix explained to them that he was Cacofonix's predecessor as a teacher not as a bard. After hearing that the House of School suggested that Getafix could teach some lessons just like Cacofonix does. Getafix agreed as long as he didn’t have to give lessons on what ingredients are in his Magic potion.
  • Among Getafix's new friends in the hall of Religious Practice his closest friend is Friar Tuck. Both are kindly priests of a religion who are willing to stand up to tyrants and are willing to fight if need be. They have shared various bits of knowledge with each other and discuss various topics. This did leave to an attempted kidnapping of Friar Tuck under the false belief that one of the bits of knowledge that Getafix had shared was the recipe for the magic potion, however the kidnappers were unsuccessful because Getafix had given Friar Tuck some Magic potion. Much to Prince John's annoyance since he was the one that sent the kidnappers.
  • Getafix is glad that Elsa understands that just because some demons are evil doesn't mean that all are. Getafix pointed out the fact that he doesn't hate all the Romans just the evil ones he understands that most of the Roman soldiers as just regular people doing their jobs. They have both been seen going together to the House of Nature to find some plants with each offering their knowledge of plants to the other. Getafix did get into a bit of trouble with her when he guessed her age at being twenty years old, rather than her actual age of being always fifteen years old.
  • Getafix dislike people like Judge, the Mad Doctor, who use their knowledge for evil means. He points out that they should use their knowledge to help people rather than hurt them. They did try to trick Getafix into sharing with them the recipe of the magic potion, however Getafix was wise enough to see through their trick. So Getafix decided to play a trick on them, he gave them a recipe for a real magic potion but this magic potion doesn't give people super strength instead it cause rapid hair growth for a day. This led to Judge and the Mad Doctor having hair longer than Rapunzel.
  • Getafix has earned the dislike of Rodin, Hephaestus and Dyntos for not using their impressive forging skills and instead choosing to go with the sickle maker Metallurgix. Getafix says that he would prefer someone who specialises in making sickles rather than someone who doesn't even if they are gods. He also doesn't want Rodin to turn a demon into a golden sickle because the demon's powers might interfere with the powers of the golden sickle, which might cause side effects in the ingredients he harvests with it. He is willing to have Dyntos or Hephaestus forge a cauldron for him to use, but after saying that their skills are not good enough for Getafix to have them forge a golden sickle they refused to help Getafix, so Getafix decided to just have Asterix's follower the Indomitable Village's Blacksmith Fulliautomatix make one.
  • Cleopatra is expressed with the skills he used to help the Egyptian architect build a palace for Caesar as part of a bet between Cleopatra and Juilius Caesar. Juilius respects him for creating a magic potion that lets the Gauls defeat his troops but he dislikes the fact that this potion means he has never been able rule all of Gaul. Getafix's wisdom has allowed him to see through all of the schemes that Caesar and his minions have tried to defeat the village, unfortunately Getafix is one of the few villagers that can see through the scheme straight away.
  • Since ascending Getafix has picked up a few rivals in the art of potion making. Plague Knight is impressed with Getafix's potion making skills but he thinks that his potion bombs are superior to Getafix's magic potion. Dr N. Brio wants to use Getafix's knowledge to make his potions more lethal but Getafix has refused. Dr N. Brio also wants to find out which is better his mutagen or Getafix's magic potion.

  • Robin Hood, the legendary Prince of Thieves who stole from the rich to give to the poor, has been around for nearly a thousand years and has made quite a few friends and enemies in that time. Among the later members to join Robin's Merry Men is a portly, bald-headed priest known as Friar Tuck. In stark contrast to the corrupt and pompous authority figures governing Nottingham, Tuck is a jovial, kind and devout soul who cares for the poor people and remains true to the ways and teachings of the Catholic Church. But just because he's large and jolly doesn't mean he's a pushover. Far from it. Friar Tuck can be deceptively dangerous when he wants to, easily handling a sword or a quarterstaff like the other Merry Men, but he's got a few additional tricks up his sleeve. He's a master of Pankration, an Ancient Greek martial art that combines grappling, wrestling and furious strikes. Robin met Tuck one day by a stream, to which the dashing rouge asked the Friar to carry him across. Tuck did so, but when he was tasked with carrying Robin back to the opposite side, the large Friar tossed him into the water and brought out his sword. Tuck defeated Robin Hood in their river duel and so impressed was he that the thief invited the Friar to become a Merry Man, where he remained a valuable ally for many years.
  • It was a rainy day in Nottingham and Robin Hood, along with the rest of the Merry Men, had seemingly vanished without a trace. At first, Friar Tuck assumed they had gone deep into Sherwood Forest and were planning something big, so he travelled there to investigate. When he arrived, Tuck discovered their camp was abandoned, as if the Merry Men never existed in the first place. He assumed the Sheriff of Nottingham was behind this but if he had been, Tuck would've seen some sign of a battle, but there was nothing... Almost. Tuck's eye saw a piece of parchment against Major Oak, secured by a single arrow. He took it off and read it. "Forgive me for leaving you behind, Tuck my friend," the parchment read. "But now it is time to join us. You have been chosen." As he finished reading it, a portal opened before him. Tuck carefully approached and entered it. On the other side, he discovered a mysterious unknown land filled with people and creatures unlike anything in England and sure enough, waiting for him by a riverbank, was old Robin Hood himself. The two were happy to see each other once more, with Robin explaining he had gotten things set up for Tuck, giving the old Friar a temple and title in this Pantheon as they called it. Tuck was initially confused, but if it meant joining the Merry Men again he was okay with it... also as long as there was plenty of food and ale to enjoy.
  • Tuck's temple leads back to his church in Nottingham. It is a small rustic structure, standing in stark contrast to the larger, more elaborate Abbeys scattered across England. But to the kind Friar, it doesn't have to be extravagant. A church is meant to be a place of worship, not a symbol of vanity. Anyone travelling through Nottingham and looking to pray is welcome to do so at Tuck's church, along with giving a small donation to the poor.
  • Like many in the Pantheon, Tuck's appearance differs depending on the situation, though most of his appearances stay true to his portly monk heritage. In a couple of universes, however, Tuck takes on more unique looks. In one timeline, Brother Tuck is a skilled martial artist who joined the Merry Men after travelling the world. In another, he's a younger man with a thick set of hair. And yet in another world, he's a Rabbi named Tuckman. No matter what he looks like though, the good Friar - or Rabbi - is always there to help those in need and guide them on their way.
    • There is one particular form that Friar Tuck can take on from time to time, which originated in a more animated timeline. This form, resembling a large badger, is still as jolly and heroic as ever and is surprisingly the form most folks think of when they hear Tuck's name. It is most commonly seen amongst the Pantheon anthropomorphic animals, and it was in this form that Tuck happened upon Sly Cooper and his gang. Sly had travelled back to 14th century England to help out his ancestor, Sir Galleth Cooper, only to end up in 12th century Nottingham. Sly took to robbing from Prince John and the Sheriff, which immediately caught Robin Hood and Tuck's attention. After finding the Cooper Gang, Sly was able to explain the situation to them and together, the raccoon and fox duo stole a valuable jewel needed to return to Sly's home time, with Friar Tuck helping Bentley and Murray distract the Prince's guards. Tuck has kept in touch with the Cooper Gang, having come to view Sly in a similar light to Robin; an honourable thief who steals from other criminals. speaking of criminals, Friar Tuck frowns upon Reynard the Fox, having heard about all the atrocious crimes he had committed back in his homeland. Reynard for his part doesn't like the Friar either, viewing him as just another stuffed-up pompous, corrupt priest just like the ones back home. Reynard even attempted to steal the donation box straight out of Tuck's church once. But the good Friar wasn't going to stand for a repeat of what the Sheriff of Nottingham did, so he belly-bumped Reynard straight out and barred him entry into the church permanently.
  • Prince John was not at all happy to learn of Friar Tuck's ascension, especially after learning it was Robin Hood who was behind it. Furious as always, Prince John had Tuck arrested for "conspiring" with Sly Cooper and planned to have him hanged to lure Robin out of hiding. It didn't quite work out. The "priest" John had arrested was in fact Sly himself, the real Friar Tuck had escaped with Robin's help... and stole a decent amount of money from the arrogant Prince. John was livid for the next week, and Tuck, Robin and the Cooper gang had a good laugh for that entire time.
  • Given his status in the Catholic Church, Tuck quickly gained a lot of attention from the Pantheon's more religious individuals; both in a positive and negative light. On the positive side of things, the Friar's kind nature and humble devotion made him quick friends with Irish Priest Father James O'Flaherty, who heard of Tuck's involvement with the Merry Men and praised him for doing The Lord's work in Nottingham. Flaherty will sometimes visit Nottingham to help Tuck bring hope and happiness to the people, bringing with him a few associates from the Pantheon. One was surgeon Gabrielle van der Ma, formerly known as Sister Luke. Though no longer part of the Church, Tuck and Gabrielle have a good understanding and respect for each other, with the latter coming to Nottingham to help tend to the sick and the poor. Another was Erica Fontaine, a Parisian nun and dancer with extraordinary spiritual powers who is more than capable of even making Prince John's soldiers back off, due to her more advanced technology. Members of the Vincennes Private Girls Academy also stop by to visit, the Academy having been founded by French Catholic missionaries after 1868. Tuck got to visit the Academy, taking an interest in the campus church, complete with a working bell tower. He comes to ring it every now and again, announcing the start of a new day.
    • Then there are the nuns and sisters of St. Katherine's Parish, which includes the Abbey Choir leader Deloris Wilson. Tuck took a shine to the Parish's style of music and invited them to play for the church. The people of Nottingham, though a little weirded out by the music style, enjoyed every moment. They especially got a kick when Deloris lead the choir in an upbeat rendition of "The Phoney King of England."
    • Tuck has also sympathized with those who are still associated with religion even if some weren't part of the Catholic Church. Maria and Georg von Trapp were among the first to meet the Friar following his ascension, the old priest praising the von Trapp for their courage when it came time to escape Austria. It was through them that Tuck met a young woman named Rosemary Woodhouse, who Tuck initially distrusted due to her becoming pregnant with the supposed Anti-Christ. However, after learning of her traumatic experience with a Satanic cult and being forced into their ranks, Tuck's opinion lightened up. He stops by her temple every now and again to check in on Rosemary and see if she's alright and if there's anything she needs. He also got help from a fellow monk named Aang, the Avatar. Aang was more than happy to speak with Tuck about their philosophies, their cultures and share their own adventures. He stops in from time to time to check on things in England.
  • On the flip side of things, Tuck instantly came to oppose the Pantheon's corrupt priests and judges. Those who would use the name of God as an excuse to commit heinous crimes against the people. One prominent example of this was Judge Claude Frollo. Frollo was a cruel, corrupt, high-ranked government official who abused his authority to hunt down and arrest innocent people, all while claiming to the people that it was God's will. Tuck immediately disapproved of Frollo's cruelty, not to mention his abuse of the hunchback, Quasimodo and lustful obsession for the Roma dancer, Esmeralda. Frollo couldn't care less for the fat Friar, going so far as to give support to Prince John just to spite him. Since then, Esmeralda and Quasimodo have helped Tuck out, keeping the people safe from the thugs sent to Nottingham and occasionally stealing from Frollo's treasury. When not dealing with Frollo, Tuck has to contend with Water Tribe Chieftan Unalaq, who merged with the dark spirit Vaatu, becoming a Dark Avatar who nearly destroyed the world, as well as Ghetsis of the Seven Sages, who manipulated his son N into becoming a puppet king for Team Plasma, as well as plotting to overthrow him when the time came. Unalaq and Ghetsis distrust the fat Friar and have expressed a desire to invade and take over Nottingham. Should any of these individuals try an push his buttons though, Tuck will simply give them lots of gold and silver... and push them out a high window.
  • Good monarchs are hard to come by in Nottingham what with Prince John in charge. The Pantheon only made things more difficult as there were kings, queens and royals of all walks of life; some good, others evil. Thankfully, Friar Tuck managed to find a few royals who were just, noble and honest, much like King Richard. There was Arthur, the original King of England, who praised Robin for defending the people of Nottingham from the corruption and injustices of Prince John, as well as thanking Friar Tuck for being a valuable ally and a beacon of hope. Similar praises were spoken by King Aragorn of Gondor, who found the Friar to be an honourable man, even if his love for food and drink reminded him a bit too much of Gimli the dwarf. But it was the Pevensie siblings - Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy - that Tuck got along with the most, due to their humble and courageous natured as well as their world and stories matching those found within the Bible. This camaraderie was further expanded upon after Tuck learned that Aslan, The Great Lion, was in fact an alternate version of Christ himself. Aslan has come to Nottingham in the past, helping Robin and his Merry Men fight against the Sheriff's men in secret. Every now and then, some have claimed to have seen a great lion appear in Sherwood Forest, only to vanish in an instant. Tuck and Robin often share a chuckle at such claims, and the Pevensies have welcomed them to visit Narnia whenever they can.
  • During his time in the Pantheon, Friar Tuck came to learn of many thieves and rogues who were very much like Robin Hood in their mannerisms and even sometimes in appearance. The first to catch the Friar's attention was an archer from Star City named Oliver Queen. Ollie had been mistaken for Robin on multiple occasions and was put on Prince John's most wanted list for robbing from his associates and himself. the old Friar got to work trying to figure out if this "Green Arrow" was to be trusted. Turns out he was; Ollie and Robin had known each other for a while, with the former explaining he based his outfit off of the Prince of Thieves himself. Tuck came to respect Oliver, and after much discussion quickly became friends with him. Another thief Tuck came to befriend was the mysterious Saint Tail, a Phantom Thief who had been stealing valuable items from other criminals and letting authorities apprehend them. She wound up taking shelter in Tuck's temple, injured from a heist gone wrong. The good Friar took care of her, during which time he discovered Saint Tail was in fact Meimi Haneoka, a young nun who had visited Nottingham a few weeks before following Tuck's ascension. Tuck was surprised by this but promised to keep Haneoka's identity a secret, knowing she was doing good deeds in spite of being considered a thief. The same applies to the Agrabah-based Aladdin, a young man born into poverty who stole merely to survive and wasn't above giving to those less fortunate than him. Even though he was now married to Agrabah's princess and living among royalty, Aladdin will steal from other thieves and give the loot to the poor of the city. Tuck developed a fondness for the former street rat, comparing him to Robin on many occasions and had offered him a place in Nottingham should Prince John ever send his soldier after Aladdin.
    • It was through Aladdin that Friar Tuck met Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, an Assassin from the 12th century. At first, the old Friar wasn't sure what to make of the white-cloaked stranger, especially since he initially assumed Altair was a cold and ruthless killer. It was only after Altair fought off some of Prince John's soldiers that he and Tuck began to talk, and the Friar was surprised to learn the Assassin had met King Richard during the Crusades, saving his life from the traitorous Robert de Sable. After learning this, Friar Tuck came to respect Altair and welcomes him to Nottingham whenever he's passing by.
  • Friar Tuck has mixed feelings about the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. For one thing, the realm is almost constantly in conflict, with the commonfolk always caught up in the "Game of Thrones" that the nobility plays amongst each other. As a result, Tuck's sympathy for the people led to him coming to blows with some of the noble houses, particularly House Lannister of Casterly Rock. Lord Tywin, a cold and brutal man obsessed with preserving his family name and legacy, frowned upon Tuck's criticism of Lannister rule and wished to ban him from Westeros altogether. Something his daughter Queen Cersei and grandson King Joffrey both agree upon. Cersei was reminded too much of the High Sparrow upon seeing Tuck and even sent her trusted knight, Ser Gregor Clegane, after him. Robin helped Tuck escape and both have made a not to avoid the Lannisters at any cost. Tuck also found himself disliking the High Sparrow, finding the man was a front for a corrupt Faith Militant and could be just as bad as the nobility they opposed.
    • That being said, Lord Eddard Stark welcomed Tuck to Winterfell and offered to help the poor of Nottingham in whatever way he can. Tuck expressed his thanks and wondered if there was anything he could do in return. Eddard politely thanked Tuck and said there was one thing he could do. Keep the Sheriff of Nottingham out of the North. Tuck was more than happy to oblige.
  • One day, Friar Tuck was wandering through the Pantheon when he heard the playing of a lute. He followed the musing into the forest and was amused to discover a black-feathered duck - one Daffy Duck - claiming to be Robin Hood, along with a pig dressed similarly to the Friar's own garb. Tuck joined the pig, named Porky, in watching Daffy attempt to rob a rich traveller. After watching the duck's many failed attempts to steal the traveller's gold, Tuck convinced the wannabe "Robin Hood" to try his luck as a fellow Friar. Friar Duck didn't quite work out, and while Porky gets along swimmingly with Tuck, Daffy doesn't seem to mind the monk after a few more interactions... just so long as Tuck doesn't learn about his plans to hoard Prince John's money for himself.
    • Porky and Daffy weren't the only Looney Tunes Tuck happened to encounter while in the Pantheon. While travelling through Sherwood Forest, he happened upon the Sheriff of Nottingham being deceived and humiliated by a grey-furred rabbit with a strange accent. This rabbit, Bugs Bunny, met Robin Hood and his Merry Men soon after and was welcomed in with open arms, even naming Bugs an honorary member for humiliating the Sheriff so thoroughly.
  • Prince John's obsession with taxes and money was what nearly destroyed Nottingham and Friar Tuck learned there were others in the Pantheon just as avaricious as the Prince. The corrupt and wealthy Mr. Burns has proposed to build a power plant in Nottingham, mainly to siphon off some extra cash from Prince John and to use the village as a nuclear waste dump. Friar Tuck was quick to inform the High Gods and they quickly banned Burns from setting foot in Medieval England. Others though were still allowed to enter. Eliza and Neil Reagan came to also make a deal with Prince John, but on the way to the castle, they stopped in at Tuck's church and stole from the poor box. The Friar was there to witness this, took the coins and back and kicked them straight out for their petty theft. For extra measure, Robin and Little John robbed their carriage, forcing them to walk the rest of the way through the mud. And in the rain. Meanwhile, Flintheart Glomgold and Governor Ratcliffe also desired the royal treasury, both for their own reasons. Glomgold wanted to surpass Scrooge McDuck's own near-immeasurable wealth, while Ratcliffe simply wished to use the taxes to compensate for failing to find gold in the New World. Both have been barred entry from Tuck's church and should he encounter them in the Pantheon, he'll make sure they don't try anything funny.
    • Due to his former position as Master of Coin, Lord Petyr Baelish had set his eyes on a similar position in Nottingham. Friar Tuck was suspicious of this stranger and went to inform Robin. Turned out Littlefinger was planning on using the taxes acquired by John and the Sheriff to return to Westeros and continue on his path to claiming the Iron Throne. In a surprising move, Tuck told Prince John that Littlefinger was straight up using him for his own schemes. John was quick to remove Baelish from his sight... before trying to arrest Tuck. Luckily, Baelish helped him escape, but not before warning the Friar that the next time they meet could possibly be his last.
  • Surprisingly, Tuck has found companionship with brutal and seemingly dangerous individuals within the Pantheon. Those who have been scarred, battered and broken in the past. An example of this was the Ishvalan monk known as Scar. Much like the Catholic-oriented Tuck, Scar's people worshiped a single God and was a devout man by nature, at least before the Ishvalan War resulted in his brother's death and turned him into an alchemist-slaying serial killer. Tuck was pleasantly surprised to learn Scar had atoned for his crimes and even defended some of Nottingham's inhabitants from the Sheriff. He stops by Tuck's church from time to time to seek additional advice in helping restore Ishval's relations with their former enemies in Amestris. The Friar is more than happy to help out. Then there was Sandor Clegane, the Hound. Sandor was once a brutal and cynical warrior who had a pretty bleak view of the world, especially since his psychotic monster of a brother Gregor was a knight. Many would have assumed Sandor would want nothing to do with Friar Tuck. Then came the surprise. After nearly dying in a duel with Brienne of Tarth, Sandor was found and nursed back to health by Septon Ray, who helped Sandor be a better man - albeit still as brutal a fighter as ever. On rare occasions, Sandor will visit Friar's church for quiet reflection and help tidy things up. He may say he doesn't give a rat's ass, but the Friar knows better and appreciates the help.
    • Perhaps the most shocking of friendships Tuck created was with the Black Swordsman known as Guts. Guts came to Nottingham randomly one day and asked the Friar to watch over a young woman in his charge. The woman, named Casca, stayed with the Friar while Guts contended with not only the Sheriff's men but also a monster sent by the swordsman's former ally Griffith. When the battle ended, Guts was horribly injured and needed medical attention. Tuck and Robin Hood tended to his wounds and thanked him for protecting Nottingham from such demons. Guts merely shrugged it off and thanked them for protecting Casca while he was away. Ever since Guts will sometimes stop by to let Casca enter the church, all the while Tuck keeps an eye on her while Guts is away fighting. The Friar offered Guts a place to stay for the night but the swordsman declined. He prefers not to let demons find him and enter the church.
  • In one particular timeline, it was discovered that Robin Hood had trained a young Samurai from Japan in archery. Tuck never met this Samurai, known simply as Jack, while he was in Nottingham, but eventually got the chance after ascending. Jack was a kind and honourable soul, one that Tuck came to greatly respect, and has often put an end to many injustices on his journey to return to the past to slay Aku. Tuck and Jack will speak from time to time, sharing their various adventures with each other and depressing hope for the future.
  • One day while wandering through the Pantheon's forest, Friar Tuck stumbled upon two large green ogres enjoying each other's company. The pair, known as Shrek and Princess Fiona, saw the human approaching and immediately went on the defensive, confusing the Friar. Turns out the three had met in one unusual timeline, where Robin and his Merry Men were planning on killing Shrek to save the "damsel in distress" Fiona... only for the aforementioned damsel to wipe the forest floor with them, with the Friar being punched in the face through an accordion. The memory slowly came back to Tuck and after learning about all that happened he simply shook his head and chuckled. He apologized to Shrek and Fiona for what had transpired and promised to be on better terms with them. Things have been going well, with Tuck stopping by to see the ogres whenever he gets the chance. He also made sure to not use an accordion ever again.
  • "Oh, for heaven's sake, son. You're no outlaw. Why someday you'll be called a great hero."

  • Capable of inspiring great loyalty from those who follow him, through leading by example. Folksy but sharp. Has been known to subject those who displease him to lengthy late-night lectures about U.S National Parks and the correct way of seasoning a Thanksgiving turkey. Residing in the House of Leadership for some time due to his aptitude as the 42nd President of the United States in his timeline, Josiah had decided to move on to the House of Religion and Faith, namely for his love of using quotes from the Bible.
  • Appeared in a dream to US President Barack Obama offering advice during the campaign. It is debatable whether the former president had a hand of helping Obama win both his terms.
  • Speaking of which, he had a bit of a scare when he saw someone who looked like the former Alaskan governor. She turned out to be an enthusiastic fan of his work. Liz Lemon has offered her services ever since.
  • Has found his recently-acquired divinity to be a useful addition to his armory of weapons used to intimidate prospective partners of his daughters, especially his youngest. Well, that and the 82nd Airborne Division.
  • Commander Shepard and his/her allies aren't too keen on him due to his resemblance to The Illusive Man.
  • Not many know this, but he initially ascended into the House of Knowledge. Josiah can still be found within the area's Library. He insists that it's because he's also a Nobel Prize-winning economist. Everyone else believes it's so that he can continue to force everyone there to listen to his lectures and participate in trivia quiz competitions.
  • Bartlet possesses no military experience or training and is a sufferer of multiple sclerosis, meaning that he is not the physically strongest of leaders. However, underestimate him at his peril, for not only is he the Commander-in-Chief of the world's biggest military power, but he he commands great loyalty from those around him. Those who are among his followers can usually be identified by their use of the phrase / prayer "I serve at the pleasure of the President."
  • He expected to face many detractors to his presidency. None has been more opposed to him than Cartman, who has encouraged others to derail as much of his presidency as possible.
  • Archie Bunker is more of a typical Republican. He opposes most of Josiah's policies on principle, but at least tolerates the things he's done to the country. If only his son would stop gushing his guts about him all the time. It's a sentiment shared by the likes of Red Forman and Hank Hill.
  • Has been thoroughly criticized by the personality known as Stephen Colbert throughout his presidency, bringing his strawman arguments to good use. While more conservative deities praised his efforts, they wish Colbert does a better job with his explanations. In truth, the two are secretly best of friends, with the Straw Character purposely undermining his own arguments.
  • Was visited by a young girl by the name of Anne Shirley holding flowers. Turns out she thought he was her adopted father Matthew Cuthbert. After gently correcting the mistake, he invited a disappointed Anne into his temple to brighten her mood. She is now allowed into his temple anytime she wants.
  • Not even he could believe there were enough followers to promote the head of Crooked President Nixon into the Pantheon, even if it's not the one he is used to. Expect no love between the two leaders.
  • Is naturally opposed to all Nazi deities, especially its patron Red Skull. As such, he has aligned himself with Captain America to deal with this threat.
  • Despite the rebuke, Bartlet accepted Superman's decision not to represent the American Way anymore. He agreed that the Man of Steel should move towards cooperation with the world in general, not just the country.
  • Guile has stated his support for the president, offering his services. Jed is fully cognizant of the seriousness of Guile's mission to stop M. Bison in the Pantheon and has told him to stay focused on monitoring Bison and his associates. Bartlet has also stated to be a fan of his theme song. He awaits the day someone adds the theme to one of his scenes.
  • Bartlet also had great respect for Guile's best friend Charlie Nash in Nash's first life, but became disappointed at Nash's new nihilistic attitude in his return from death. Upon the knowledge of Nash's epiphany and sacrifice to help facilitate the destruction of M. Bison's body, however, Bartlet regained his previous high regard for Nash. Being among the first to meet and welcome Charlie to the Pantheon, he also asked Charlie to go find Guile and request a conference for him.
  • The President has found himself acting as mission control to something far greater than the mere politics he's known for in his own universe, by virtue of Guile, Nash, and their Interpol friend Chun-Li risking their lives against the Homunculi of Amestris to investigate the barracks from which the ascension of King Bradley was orchestrated. With the details being exposed the next day that the Homunculi's Father had gained help from other magical villains to orchestrate this, Jed has since conferred both with Nash and his ally Selena Recital, as well as with fellow President Solidus Snake, in preparing for combat against the forces of evil. The Homunculi, as well as the new High Command team assembled by Bradley, have Bartlet and his allies in their sights. Despite this, he is not backing down, believing that he has God on his side.
  • Bartlet utterly despises Frank Underwood. Underwood, in turn, sees Bartlet as a delusional idealist who in his words, "barks and huddles more than he could accomplishes". The two could not be any more different personally and thematically; Bartlet is upstanding, inspiring and seeks to uphold the best of America while deeply caring and loving his family and friends. Underwood is condescending, manipulative, couldn't care less about America or it's populace and sees everyone and everything around him as a means to an end, even his wife. It's telling when Bartlet is one of the most acclaimed politicians by heroes whereas Underwood is a member of the GUAE Mastermind. While Bartlet seeks to do the best he could to maintain politics in the Pantheon and assure the most minimum damage possible, Underwood will do anything to sow discord and misery if it means advancing his political career.

  • The Blues Brothers are a Blues and Soul revivalist band that debuted in 1978 as guests on Saturday Night Live. Consisting of veteran R&B musicians, the band was fronted by the titular brothers themselves; Jake and Elwood Blues. Jake performed as lead vocalist while Elwood provided backup as either vocalist or playing the harmonica. Not long after debuting though, Jake ended up in prison and the band disbanded but when he was released, having served three years in a five year sentence, he and Elwood returned to the orphanage they grew up in to learn it would be closed down if they didn't pay their $5000 property tax at the end of the month. The brothers then went to a church to figure out how to get the money needed, where a divine light shined down upon Jake, giving him the answer they needed. They needed to get the band back together and perform a concert to get the money for the orphanage. And so the journey began, with Jake and Elwood travelling about to get their band members back together for the show... all the while avoiding Neo-Nazis, an angry country band, a mysterious homicidal woman - who turned out to be Jake's ex-fiancee - and the entire Illinois Police Department. But they weren't alone. All along the way, several miraculous events happened in the boys favour, including surviving explosions, point-blank gunfire, rocket launchers fired at them, and even having their car perform some incredible feats. But all that dissipated when the two finally completed their quest and received the receipt for the tax payment.
  • While in prison, the brothers received an invitation from one Kermit the Frog, who asked them to perform as guest stars for the Pantheon's Muppet Show, to which they accepted. Unfortunately, Elwood's drivers licence was still suspended and soon a massive manhunt was underway. Every member of the House of Justice were in hot pursuit of the duo, trying to be the first to apprehend them considering their notorious reputation. They managed to evade capture and perform several songs for the expecting audience... only to be arrested shortly after. Turned out the officers were all in attendance, and came prepared. Before they could send them away though, Kermit revealed he had spoken to the Court of the Gods prior to the concert, granting them a temple and position in the Pantheon. The Blues Brothers were now gods... and the police were not the least bit happy about it. In addition, they were also joined by their old mentor Curtis, who actually served as pre-show entertainment with his rendition of Cab Calloway's Minnie The Moocher.
  • Their temple leads to two locations; the first is Elwood's flophouse apartment in Chicago. A rundown, dilapidated place located right beside the transit system. They don't visit it much anymore, considering it was blown up by Jake's fiancee. The other place they can travel to is St. Helen of the Blessed Shroud Orphanage, the place the brothers grew up in and risked their lives to save. There is one catch to going there. They have to endure the wrath of Sister Mary Stigmata, also known as The Penguin. While she was thankful for the boys saving the orphanage, Sister Mary will still scold them for their foul language and the collateral damage they caused.
  • Jake and Elwood didn't ascend alone. Not only did they get Curtis, they also brought the whole band with them, the very same band they worked so hard to bring back together and wound up in prison with. The guys do a double shift; they work like they had back on Earth during the day, but come night, they're partying up a storm with the brothers. Together, the band keep busy in the Houses of Music and Theatre, performing sold out shows every night to wondrous applause. There is one thing the band all agrees upon though. They are not pretending to be "The Good Ol' Boys" anytime soon.
  • The Blues Brothers have garnered a lot of attention from the Pantheon's resident musicians. They've made friends, or at the very least acquaintances, with Brook, Epic Sax Guy, Amigo, and even music legends Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. All of them have partaken in duelling bands in the House of Music, much to the amazement and joy of anyone watching. Sometimes too, they team up to put on shows together. These productions are often even more exciting than the duelling bands scenarios. It has put them at odd with I-No, who tried to sabotage one of their shows on orders from Trollkaiger. They haven't forgotten and they haven't forgiven.
  • Jake and Elwood also attracted the attention of deities who also shared their stylish fashion sense too. In particular, The Elite Beat Agents have shown up to perform some sick beats to the band's music. As does the art thief Phantom R, who sometimes just goes to their concerts in his civilian disguise of Raphael. The brothers don't recognize him out of costume, but still welcome him all the same.
  • Their tendency for destruction and illegal actions led to the Blues Brothers developing a peculiar friendship with the Three Stooges, who sometimes join them at concerts and whenever they're on the run from the House of Justice. The Stooges often consider themselves brothers, and seeing as Jake and Elwood forged their longtime friendship in the orphanage, they decided to come along for the ride. As such, the boys have been teaching the three all about blues and soul music.
  • Turns out the Brothers had an adorning fan in the form of the Nostalgia Critic, who not only enjoyed and praised their quest, but also looked into two other timelines involving the duo. For their part, Jake and Elwood were pleased to have someone enjoy their music and comedic antics. Still, they haven't excepted his resume into joining up with the band. They're looking for real musical talent after all.
  • Despite their rough interactions with The Penguin, the boys were hesitant to meet the Pantheon's resident nuns. Luckily for them, the few they managed to bump into were actually more courteous. The nuns and sisters of St. Katherine's Parish appreciated their musical talent and they, along with Erica Fontaine, were happy to hear the boys journey to save the orphanage, even more-so after learning the Lord was on their side. That said however, they don't support the Blues Brothers growing up and becoming common thieves, with filthy mouths and bad attitudes.
  • If there is one thing the Blues Brothers cannot stand, it would probably be Nazis. In their home world, they had to contend with a band of Illinois Nazis, note  and throughly humiliated them at every step, even when those same buffoons tried to kill them. As a result, the brothers have a very low opinion on the Pantheon's resident Nazis, including Red Skull, Gihren Zabi, Wilhelm Strasse, Millennium & Adenoid Hynkel). The feeling is mutual, as all the aforementioned deities desire to put down the pair and make them suffer.
    • This animosity towards the Nazis has also lead to the Blue Brothers opposing Eric Cartman, who is sympathetic to their cause and has tried on a few occasions to burn down their orphanage. They were not letting that happen, and quickly sent him jumping into a river by driving the Bluesmobile right at him.
  • The boys are hesitant to interact with or even be around Leia Skywalker, not because she's a well respected official in both the Pantheon and her home galaxy, but because she physically resembles Jake's murderous ex-fiancee. Even when they were on their mission, Jake and Elwood had several close encounters with the mystery woman and with Leia's potential Force powers, they don't want to tick her off. For her part, Leia doesn't hate the Blues Brothers, more like doesn't tolerate their reckless behaviour, seeing them as almost like Han Solo back in his smuggling days.
  • Rumour has it, in Ness' home universe, there is a musical group called the Runaway Five, who were, in many ways, similar to the Blues Brothers, even bearing the Japanese name Tonzura or Runaway Brothers. Jake and Elwood took this similarity as mere coincidence, but they were somewhat amused that there were other people emulating their style.
  • Rumours have run rampant through the Pantheon that Jake apparently died while in prison, the orphanage was sold off and Elwood had to track down Curtis' illegitimate son. The boy don't buy into that story, and would rather continue their own shenanigans in the Pantheon instead of try their luck in other timeline.
  • The gods were quick to make an assessment of how much damage the boys and other parties involved cause in their home world. Suffice to say, they were flabbergasted.
  • "They'll never catch us. We're on a mission from God."

  • Gabrielle van der Mal is the daughter of a Belgian surgeon during the 1930s who decided to join a convent in Bruges, where she took the nun’s name of “Sister Luke.” There, she went through her postulancy and novitiate. After a stint in a Belgian mental hospital, she was sent to the Belgian Congo, where she served as a nurse alongside handsome, but cynical Dr. Fortunati. Her dedication to nursing as well as her pride in her skills would end up in conflict with her duties as a nun, which demands dedication to the spiritual above all else. Such a conflict became grimmer when she returned to Belgium around 1940 only to discover that the Nazis had invaded the place by that time, not to mention the fact that they killed her father. By that point, she realized that she wasn’t cut out to be a nun, and she left the convent after a decade of servitude to rejoin the secular world.
  • Some time after her departure from the convent, she was visited by one Maria von Trapp, who told her that she just heard about her story and decided to have a conversation with her. Some of the topics that they had discussed include their aspirations to be a nun as well as their situations of living in a country that’s under Nazi rule. In the middle of the conversation, Maria revealed that the reason that she visited was to tell her that she has been invited to the Pantheon. Maria then led her to the doorway that magically led both of them to the House of Religion and Faith, who found Gabrielle to be a perfect fit for the Taking the Veil trope and welcomed her to the place, something that she didn’t expect. As for Maria, she remained friends with her and has at times been invited by her and the rest of the Von Trapp family to sing some songs together.
  • Maria von Trapp proceeded to introduce her to other resident nuns of the Pantheon, such as the ones from St. Katherine’s Parish. Gabrielle has some appreciation for Deloris as while she’s not an official nun, her presence in the convent ended up leaving a positive impact on the group. She isn't too fond of the Blues Brothers sometimes calling her "penguin", but still appreciated what they did for the orphanage they grew up in.
    • However, she was also made aware of some of the less benign nuns, such as Double and Kiara Sesshouin. She would rather not get assimilated with Double who has some shady agenda already, and stays away from Kiara Sesshouin whose aim of reaching enlightenment through a cosmic orgy goes against Christianity's traditional values, though she feels sorry for Kiara as she initially wanted to help people and become a therapist before being corrupted by a Demon Pillar.
    • Aside from the aforementioned nuns, Gabrielle had also met up with Father Karras and Father Merrin, with whom she respected for the works that they had done back in their mortal world. Father Karras, for his part, sympathizes with Gabrielle’s conflict of faith, which he finds similar to his own.
  • Given that she has an aptitude for medicine, she is brought in by the House of Health and Diseases to nurse some of the patients there every now and then. There, she befriended the likes of Florence Nightingale and Asia Argento, whom she frequently worked with. Sister Luke is surprised that Asia is a devil who became a nun and pitied her since Asia is later scorned by the very church that took her in due to what she is. Conversely, she doesn’t like Nurse Ratched after hearing about the latter’s treatment towards her mental patients. She also has an uneasy opinion towards Dr. Gregory House given that he’s a doctor with a jerkish behavior. Granted, that didn’t prevent them from being involved in some cases together.
  • Considering her experience seeing Belgium being occupied by Nazis, it’s no surprise that she is a little heartbreaking to see that the Pantheon is involved in a Forever War, but what doesn’t help for her is the fact that several Nazis have resided in the Pantheon. She is particularly under the watchful eye of General Heinz Böhm and the Valkyrie Jager, the former having killed civilians by the hundreds in order to root out partisan movements, and the latter who have performed anti-partisan operations during the later stages of the Italian campaign. Both Nazi German deities see her as potentially suspicious. Additionally, she is disgusted by HYDRA and its leader, Johann Schmidt, as well as other Nazi officers like Wilhelm Strasse and Rudolf von Sturmgeist.
  • Her decision to help the "underground" in smuggling Belgian soldiers out of the country after returning to the secular world brought the interests of Lt. Mike Powell and Lt. Karl Fairburne, both who operate behind enemy lines and are often looking for informants who know about the Axis troop movements, which is something that Gabrielle is considering. She also feels sorry for Sophie Zawistowski (who was a victim of Nazi occupation and who was forced in a Sadistic Choice regarding which of her children would live) as well as Private Robert Zussman (who was an American solider who became a prisoner of war as well as a victim of the Holocaust and Nazi war crimes during his captivity). Additionally, she can be seen aiding paratroopers such as Major Winters and Capt. Spiers, Sgt. Jack Barnes, and Pvt. Boyd Travers, who often get mis-dropped and need someone to give them directions.
  • One time, she was approached by fellow Belgian Tintin. In one of his few times he was actually seen reporting, he decided to interview her about her life as a nun back in her mortal world, to which Gabrielle agreed to do. The two proceeded to discuss several chapters of their respective lives, and at one point, even brought up their times at the Congo. Though Gabrielle isn’t sure what to make of Tintin's infamous stint there.
  • Isn’t sure what to make of Agent 47 either. While the fact that he is an assassin unnerved her a bit, she was also surprised with his ties with the Catholic Church. Most notably the time that he befriended a priest while trying to hide out of his life as a contract killer and protected a nun and her orphanage from a group of thugs looking for a girl that 47 was looking after.
  • Found herself harassed by some of Ghetsis Harmonia's Team Plasma goons, who were ransacking the Hall of Religious Practice looking for Hifumi Togo and wanted to force her to remove her apostolnik clothing, believing her to be the shogi player in disguise. Fortunately, Elsa la Conti appeared to protect her from these villains, and Shikamaru Nara, a friend of Togo's, had cleared out another section of Plasma goons. That night, Hifumi knocked on the door of her temple and explained that a friend had escorted her out knowing the attack was coming, and when she came back and heard about how Gabrielle was harassed for her sake she had to come and apologize. Mama Luke took it gracefully, and was rewarded by Hifumi offering to pray with her, a rare break from the girl's position of ambiguity with regards to the Christian faith. This, she counted as joy.

  • At the center of the USA lies the town of Moralton, the capital of Statesota and with it comes its own assortment of citizens. Orel Puppington is a 12-year-old boy who goes to church, harbors strong religious beliefs thanks to said church, and has a very optimistic attitude to the point where he could be seen as naive. The denizens of Moralton, despite going to the same church Orel does, have their own personal flaws and darker secrets, including Orel’s own family. Even if the world around him is nowhere near as pleasant as it appears to be and he is at risk of being as jaded as they are, Orel is able to hang on to his religious belief without losing his way, maintain his good-hearted character, and ultimately start his own family that is much more emotionally and psychologically stable than what he had before.
  • Life had never been better for Orel since moving away from his troubled old family and starting a new, better-adjusted one. With his faith in religion kept and a better sense of the world around him, he noticed a letter in the mail he received shortly after watching a program on TV discussing various types of religions and the positives and negatives associated with such. The letter happened to be from a place known as the Pantheon and it included various pamphlets pertaining to religion and churches that are present, with Moralton’s church being mentioned in said pamphlet. It also included a URL for Orel to visit to get a better handle of what to expect both from the Pantheon and its religious aspects. As much as Orel is unwavering in his own religion, he is curious about what the Pantheon holds for him and how much it’ll impact his faith, both for better and worse.
  • After learning the truth about how awful his father Clay was, Orel sought to avoid repeating the same mistakes that led to Clay’s jaded worldview. One other denizen that sought to avoid comparisons to their own father was Shoto Todoroki, and while Orel was able to get along with Shoto, their fathers were ultimately different in how they looked at their own flaws. Where Enji came to the realization that his desire to surpass All Might destroyed his family and sought to atone for his actions even if he’s aware that his own family won’t forgive him for it, Clay was a broken shell of a man who refused to change for the better and tried to corrupt Orel into having the same cynical mindset he has. Hearing about someone, especially when that someone is a dad, try to overcome their flaws and improve themselves and their relationship with others moved Orel and for a moment thought that maybe Clay could change for the better if he had more awareness of his issues, but ultimately Orel conceded it was too late for Clay to get better. As for Shoto, he is aware that Enji could have been worse after hearing about Clay and how he tried to be a major influence to Orel similar to how Enji originally tried to be a significant player in Shoto becoming a hero.
  • It was a disastrous hunting trip with Clay (who got drunk and shot his own son during that time) that ended up shattering Orel’s naivety and he had to come to terms with how flawed the world around him is. Plenty of other Pantheonic denizens had their innocence broken following devastating events, but one entity went through a series of events that was potentially even more bleak than what happened during Orel and Clay’s hunting trip. After his mother was killed by a wolf, a little lamb named Chirin sought revenge against the wolf that killed her and in being trained by him to become more dangerous, he ended up being corrupted by the wolf’s influence, was shunned by the home he once lived in, and forced to live in cold isolation for the rest of his life. Orel was more than saddened to hear about someone who reacted to a horrifying event and tried to take things in their own hands, only to become the very thing they were trying to avoid turning into and lose everything they cared about in the process. While Chirin remains a largely isolated figure in the Pantheon, Orel has been hoping to try and talk to him in order to get Chirin to open up and not be scared of his past, even if such attempts are unlikely to work out.
  • Despite Steven Universe’s circumstances being far more fantastical in nature, some of his personal issues were similar to that of Orel, especially in regards to their parents and how both kids lost their innocence due to traumatizing events. Orel and Steven initially sought to live up to their parents Clay and Rose Quartz respectively, but learned that neither figure was what they appeared to be in a bad way. Steven learned that in contrast to Rose Quartz being a kind, if immensely flawed figure, Clay was nowhere near as pleasant as he presented himself to be according to Orel and that Clay never went through the kind of development that let Rose Quartz come to terms with herself. Steven’s desire to help others ended up being a burden to himself, but that came with the territory of having to come to terms with himself, but with someone like Orel who was a pleasant kid exposed to how unpleasant life can be, Steven found someone he can relate to very well despite Orel’s more mundane and religious lifestyle.
  • Many of the major figureheads from the Fire Nation who were involved in conquest had a volatile family relationship that unnerved Orel moreso than their dangerous ambitions, which was something Orel wanted to avoid as much as possible. Ozai raised two children with the intent of using them to conquer other nations: Azula who ended up seeking Ozai’s approval to dire consequences on her end and Zuko who ended up turning against the two with the help of others including his uncle and former Fire Nation general Iroh. The brutality of what Ozai was trying to accomplish, especially with using his children to follow his ideals and discard them once he no longer needed them terrified Orel and he understood why Zuko ultimately wanted to not follow in Ozai’s footsteps. As for Azula who was unstable as is for Orel to not get near her otherwise, he saw what was a dark outcome for someone who was abused by their own parent while trying to live up to their expectations and getting their own life destroyed by it, something that could have happened to Orel if he hadn’t realized what kind of person Clay was.
  • As a young boy (albeit one who would eventually grow up and start a family of his own), Orel was able to find other children in the Pantheon and while he got along with some kids, there were others he was more apprehensive of. He found a lot in common with Pollyanna Whittier for being optimistic children in spite of their misfortunes (with Orel’s situations being much more dire than what Pollyanna went through) and often hung out with her, taking a liking towards her Glad Game that she came up with. He wasn’t able to strike up a similar friendship with the boys from South Park despite the quartet being kids that go through plenty of scenarios that would be inappropriate for children like him. While he wouldn’t mind hanging out with Stan, Kyle, and Kenny, he noted that the three are prone to having less-than-savory moments on their end and Orel has tried his best to avoid getting pulled into Cartman’s crazy (and sometimes fatal) schemes despite Cartman finding Orel to be a bit like Butters Stotch at times. Speaking of Butters, he happened to be a kid from South Park who Orel had less of a problem being around, in part due to said similarities of being a kind-hearted kid who had to adapt in a highly dysfunctional town with an equally dysfunctional family.
  • Having dealt with flawed adults in Moralton meant that there would be plenty of adults in the Pantheon with flaws similar to and different from what Orel had witnessed. Despite being an anthropomorphic horse, Bojack Horseman was someone who dealt with very human issues and many of them were similar to what Clay went through, particularly regarding alcoholism, narcissism, and their own abusive parents making them what they are. What separated Bojack from Clay was that the former was willing to try and make himself a better person even if said attempts don’t always work out, something that Orel was willing to understand from someone who had many of the same issues Clay had. Bojack was dismayed to learn that not only was there someone like himself, but that Clay refused to change for the better and even tried to corrupt someone as friendly as Orel into having the same cynical worldview as himself, instigating something of a generational vicious cycle. Learning about Orel’s story and how he grew past being used by someone who was a dark reflection of himself gave Bojack more of a reason to improve as a person even if he has to face more obstacles doing so.
  • Moralton’s citizens thrive on being Protestant Christians to the point where they believe that true Christians are Protestant and are highly dismissive, if not outright cruel, to Catholics. The Pantheon has a more diverse religious pool of not just Christians, but other religions and for the most part are far more tolerant of people who practice other forms of faith in addition to Protestant Christians. Friar Tuck, a kind soul who is a Catholic Christian, was taken aback at how a town who claims to be religious insists on how true Christians are Protestants and that Catholics are almost nothing to them. Hearing about how Orel grew to be more aware of how flawed his town and people are gave Tuck a reason to be open to Orel’s problems, even if Orel still has a few issues to work out. Besides Tuck, Orel has found other Christians to talk to, including Ned Flanders, a friendly fellow who has a few quirks of his own that Orel believes can be worked out, and Mr. Rogers, someone who was even kinder than Tuck when it came to understanding people’s problems and was someone who Orel can rely on if he’s in deep trouble.
  • Reverend Putty was like many other adults in Moralton: religious but flawed, though unlike other adults in that town, Orel’s kindness was able to get through to Putty and Putty was one of the very few adults in Moralton to improve as a person. While there were other religious practitioners who were able to understand Orel’s friendliness, there were others who were nowhere near as open to listening to Orel in contrast to Putty and were potentially far more despicable than Moralton’s worst. Among the worst of these religious zealots included misogynistic serial killer Harry Powell and corrupt government official Claude Frollo, both of whom attempted to justify their vile actions by claiming they’re doing the work of God. As benevolent as Orel is, he’s grown past his naivete and knows that these two have fallen far enough that talking to them won’t accomplish anything other than being dismissed as a heretic according to them.
  • The Pantheon’s extranormal nature meant that not only does the Christian god that Orel worships exists, but so do many different versions of said Christian god alongside other gods of different religions. In addition to the religious zealots who Orel had problems with, there were literal gods who were vengeful and were willing to punish others for one reason or another, sometimes while feigning politeness as a means to gain more worshipers. While Orel would avoid gods like YHVH or Chuck Shurley in any capacity, the kid is more than fine worshiping other Christian gods whose personality is as friendly as people claim it is. A handful of these gods who Orel admires have seen how flawed humans are, but have also seen the better parts of humanity and how they can get through troubling times, something that Orel can understand very well given what he had to go through in order to have a better life. Learning about how one of these Gods have given godlike powers to a regular guy named Bruce Nolan for a brief period of time fascinated Orel since it meant that the Gods have to deal with their own flaws in ensuring the well-being of others in spite of the Gods’ near-omnipotence. Seeing actual Gods exist in the Pantheon meant that satanic entities and demons (plus dark entities such as Damien Thorn who exhibit satanic traits) are also present and while that caused Orel to be frightened of meeting them directly, the fact that there were benevolent demons and even satanic entities who weren’t completely evil was something he was going to have to grapple with as a Christian.
  • Much like Orel, Jonas lived in a seemingly ideal town that harbored many dark secrets among its citizens. Where Moralton was filled with hypocritical religious zealots, those who lived in The Community had their memories removed from their consciousness and given to the Receiver of Memory to be stored, a job that Jonas would end up taking up and learning what the people sacrificed to live what they thought were better lives. Despite Moralton being relatively less dystopian compared to The Community, Jonas noticed a bit of himself in Orel in regards to seeing the darker side of a setting that presented itself as being better than what it actually was. Supposedly Orel remained in Moralton as an adult to continue to try and help the town as an adult in contrast to the less drastic measures taken by Jonas to find a way to help The Community out of its problems, but regardless of where adult Orel lives and him getting along with Jonas fairly well, Orel knew that it would be much more difficult to help others living in locales with dark secrets beyond Moralton find true happiness.
  • Orel’s camping trip with his father was nothing short of a disaster, mainly because Orel got shot by him while the latter was drunk and was left to fend for himself when Clay passed out, culminating with Orel having to kill a bear that was about to attack Clay. There were plenty of other bad camping trips (whether it’s the wilderness or just a summer camp) Orel heard about in the Pantheon such as Charlie Brown’s dangerous river raft race while at summer camp or Mordecai & Rigby’s misadventures at two separate camping trips. While such incidents were bad enough on their own, few come close to being as dire as what Orel went through. While Orel would like to have a regular camping trip that’s nothing like the one he had with Clay, it’s going to take a bit of time for something like that to come to fruition and even if Orel doesn’t get shot by someone he believed he cared about, there’s still going to be a potential mishap along the way.
