Pantheon / Soldiers and Warriors

Go To

Among the military ranks of the Pantheon, these are the ones that always present of the battlefield fighting for the cause they believe. They respond to the Hall of Military Ranks, but some of the most renegade soldiers aren't guaranteed to do it willingly. Closely related to the House of Combat, where many take their training sessions there before going on a mission. It's also very common to see a high number of Blood Knights show up in this very house.

Shares the same general area as the Hall of Armies, but with training areas serving small groups of soldiers rather than large groups. Many here are either the best or the worst of the enlisted ranks, so it gets a little dicey with regards to training here. Fair warning: fatal blanket parties on strangers (for some reason) happen every now and then, so military police is crawling here.

  • "In the first age, in the first battle, when the shadows first lengthened, one stood. Burned by the embers of Armageddon, his soul blistered by the fires of Hell and tainted beyond ascension, he chose the path of perpetual torment. In his ravenous hatred he found no peace; and with boiling blood he scoured the Umbral Plains seeking vengeance against the dark lords who had wronged him. He wore the crown of the Night Sentinels, and those that tasted the bite of his sword named him... the Doom Slayer."
  • Demons. Feared for their tenacity, avoided for their rage, and hated for their unholiness. Man would never succeed against the demons, even with all the advanced technology at their disposal. Yet one man was feared, avoided and hated amongst all demonkind, a feat never accomplished by anyone. When a random soldier was ordered to secure the base on one of the moons on Mars, not only did he meet the demons he would be sworn to fight against, but the demons would find what is perhaps their greatest fear manifested in a single Space Marine, filled with no remorse, and armed to the teeth to kill any demon he would come across. After killing all the demons on the Phobos base, all would turn out well, until the demons entered Earth and murdered his pet bunny Daisy. From then on, Hell would see its forces slowly dwindle as its assaults on Earth were all undone by one person. This person, nicknamed Doomguy for his lack of name, would assault Hell on its deepest roots, and despite clearing and killing all demons on the planet, it would all be undone by a single Mother Demon, forcing him out of retirement and back into ripping and tearing Hell once more. However, to make sure another being would never do such again, he decided to close the portal from Hell to trap the demons with him, with the purpose of fighting Hell and to never let them come to Earth ever again.
    • There was another tale, a legend of "the Slayer", a myth from the depths of Hell and beyond that tells the story of a Slayer that not only pushed an all-out attack on Hell with relentless fury, but had aid in the form of the Night Sentinels, daunting warriors that sided with him during the conflicts. As they dissipated and were later lost to the demons, the Slayer continued his rampage and would soon be entombed by a trap, forever sealed with a mark that would warn anyone about the being inside. And as expected, he was discovered by the U.A.C, just as another demonic invasion was happening in the midst. What was not expected was the fact that this Slayer is actually the Doomguy that sealed the portal from Hell to fight the demons in an eternal battle. Even being locked from Hell did not deter him from his demon-killing. When a group of Argent Sentinels discovered him on the walls of Sentinel Prime, they found him filled with demon blood, guts and the essence of him screaming to 'Rip and Tear'. Following all his retrofitted equipment by the Argent Sentinels, he would continue his assault against Hell through the Unholy Crusades and earned more respect than any other Sentinel to the point of calling him their leader. This not only set the stage for the return of the Slayer, it also signaled the warning to all demons that the Slayer is ready to Rip and Tear!
  • There were rumors that Doomguy was in the Pantheon firsthand but only few sightings were found around the House of War, his temple. Many theorized that the act of him sealing the portal from Hell must have been the cause of his sudden disappearance, though there have been a few sightings here and there. At the same time, the arrival of many demonic deities came in huge numbers and were soon flocking common Pantheon spots. Many found this to be troublesome as some are not accustomed to the smell of fire and brimstone on their homes. That would all change when the House of War was greeted by a huge tomb on one of its unoccupied spots. There, they saw what seemed to be a red mark in the front of it. Unaware of its meanings, the guardians, especially under orders of Apocalypse opened the tomb and were greeted with a green plasma blast before fighting his way through the outside of the House. When he was outside, the people saw the figure, dressed in green, bulky armor and armed to the teeth with almost every weapon imaginable, who was last seen rushing into the House of Demons and large amounts of blood and guts were spilled around the place. No one could have identified the being, but those who recognize the green pattern of the armor knew who it was: the Doom Slayer.
  • Those who know the legend of the Doom Slayer know his intentions, demons and killing. Nothing can scare him, for he is adept at handling demons of any kind, even the supposed invincible ones. Those that studied the temple he was entombed with yield various results on the Slayer, from the past evidence of his relations to a group of soldiers known as the Night Sentinels, to even evidence of some of the demons he has killed, including among those was a gigantic skull of a Titan, one of the biggest warriors Hell has ever conjured. To say that the results surprised everyone is an understatement.
  • As Hell persisted throughout the ages, battling against angels, humans and the like, they received a reminder of their bane of their existence. When the Doom Slayer reawakened, the House of Demons was in total chaos. Massive damages all throughout the house were felt and all demonic deities have received painful deaths by the Slayer. However, there was a catch, even as he constantly killed them, the Pantheon's Status Quo prevented them from actually dying, further inciting his rage. This is also worsened by the fact that some demons have even reached far beyond the House of Demons, of which he found his old foes and even new ones within the fray. Nevertheless, this will only create more hostility between him and the rest of all demonkind, whether they like it or not.
    • Speaking of old foes, the presence of the one-eyed Cacodemon did not give high hopes, as if it is floating around the Pantheon alongside the species itself, then more of Hell's demons are nearby, and his guess was correct. Few houses away, he saw what seemed to be the same Cyberdemon in different variants, including the Tyrant version. Then, he got further pissed hearing summoning noises, revealing to be the dreaded Archvile. He has suspected that it was responsible for all the demonic summoning around the Pantheon, but this is just half of it.
    • He saw new foes, starting with the Doom Hunters deployed by Deag Renak on the Doom Hunter base. Despite encountering the same Archvile that summoned it, the demon still has a presence on the same place, and to make it worse, the corrupted Night Sentinels, the Marauders paid a visit to the Slayer. Hearing this, the Slayer also made visits to the Marauder by beating them all to death. Even with all of his weaponry, the demons have made it clear that they have a spot in the Pantheon, unfortunately, that means getting themselves into the Slayer's crosshairs every single day.
  • While the past temple he once had is no more, two temples were reconstructed for the Slayer, though the other one was supplied by himself. One was a ground temple, which is the gigantic skull of the Titan he slayed. This is where people who praise him honor his rank, as both reverence and scenery. The other is the Fortress of Doom, a large Sentinel station that serves as both the Doom Slayer's HQ, home, and training grounds. This is where the Slayer often resides, as he often does do other stuff outside of just plain demon killing especially if it gets boring after some time. He often lets some of his most devout followers in, just to witness in awe the size of his home or if they need some tools that any badass marine needs. The temple can be separated into several parts:
    • A command room with a teleportation gate which he uses to go straight to any demon incursion, help out other heroes when they're being swamped by the hordes of hell, or to headbang at any concert that features the work of Mick Gordon. This is also where he has his AI control, VEGA handle the station's condition though that directive is now given to Samuel Hayden.
      • This part is where a portion of the Pantheon's Grand United Alliance, the GUAG's White Hats were studying the Sentinel technology part of his Fortress. At first he was put off by the actions, but after consultation from the higher ups, he decided to allow them to study and survey the area. If anything, the White Hats are preventing another incident where the Fortress of Doom malfunctioned.
    • Vaults where he keeps the various sets of armor that he's worn over the course of his war with hell alongside various weapon upgrades. Several heroes and visitors that the Slayer allowed into the citadel were shocked into silence when viewing an old set of green armor that seemed made for a standard space marine with a UAC logo on it. When questioned about it and the implications of it and his origins, the Slayer remained predictably silent.
      • There was also a white-and-pink "Doomicorn" suit among his armors, but nobody dares to ask him why. He's even been reported to have been sighted in that suit, and no less dangerous for it.
      • There also exists various weapon upgrades the Slayer needs when his weapons require more punch for his needs. However on weapon stands out on the entire area: the Unmaykr, a weapon of Maykr design with some few modifications. Some do not recognize the weapon's origins but if one looks at the Slayer's archives, one can notice the only instance when it was used.
    • His living quarters, which includes a weapons display cabinet in one corner, a dedicated toy collection shelf in the opposite corner, a large chair and book cabinet filled with an impressive amount of referential book titles, an armour workbench and an enormous tri-monitor gaming PC setup, alongside various paraphernalia he's collected over the years, with some referencing his ancestral line.
    • Then going deeper in his station is the Ripatorium, a particular section where he gets to summon demons for target practice and testing out his new weapons. It is in this area where portions of the Pantheon gets to witness the carnage of the Slayer demonstrated. The training hall is magically enhanced and warded so none of the evil creatures imprisoned can escape. The room also possesses magic that keeps the demons from truly dying so the Slayer can keep killing them over and over again. When it was pointed out to the Slayer the irony of being the enemy of hell yet also accurately recreating it on his citadel, he merely shrugged and continued to chainsaw through a Hell Knight while it screamed in pain only to regenerate to be killed later. Thankfully his conduct didn't violate the Geneva conventions as Geneva had already been destroyed by Hell at that point, though some of the residents are rather put off by this.
  • More demon slayers/haters came in to work with him on his crusade and many were mixed. One was Aqua, a goddess that has a common hatred for demons, and while he appreciates her presence, he is just downright disappointed on her capabilities, if not outright useless, though the only reason he is somewhat on the fence on abandoning her is that her magic can be useful to some degree. Then he met Dante Alighieri, one of the more popular people who have descended into the 9 Circles of Hell and described all he has witnessed. What he is interested in however is Dante's other form when he wants is some ass-whupping, as he slayed demons left and right while staying on the side of good. People like him are what the Slayer wants in his crusade, which also granted him visits from Tadano Hitonari as his experience from facing nightmares on his own plus being a human soldier in another dimension and his never-ending crusade against the Schwarzwelt granted him enough respect to include him in his crusade. The only thing Hitonari has to be cautious around is summon his own demons, since it runs the risk of being shot by the Doom Slayer, if they can even stomach the carnage anyway. Due to their alignments with Mem Aleph and YHVH, the Law and Chaos Hitonaris are despised due to their betrayal of their planet.
    • It should be noted that he does have a little trouble following plans or directives. He’s not stupid, mind you. Far from it, given he maintained the Fortress of Doom with VEGA's assistance all those years since his reawakening and the events that transpired during the Invasion of Hell. He doesn’t mind having allies either. He just gets bored easily and he just prefers to do whatever the hell he wants, by himself if possible. Otherwise, if he absolutely has to work with allies, he won’t necessarily mind, but he’d at least prefer to have allies who won’t weight him down and who can hold their own in a fight. He’s a good person at heart, but he’s also incredibly brutal and batshit crazy. The Doom Marine is most effective if you can drop him into the heart of enemy territory, point him at a foe, and say, "Kill them dead!" It’s especially effective if the enemies are demons.
  • His cause is just. His will is strong. And his gun is very, very large. A common thing to think about the Slayer as that defines who he is. He is a 12.0 on a one to ten scale of badassery with pure brute strength and focus to scare even the most powerful demons (and possibly gods). So to say that many gods are not willing to cross the line against him is something of a note, especially if you are a prick against humanity or advocate for demons as a whole, then he'll give you a greeting by shotgun.
    • It was this part of him that impressed the Imperium of Mankind, so much that they called him an unofficial member of the Angry Marines. That also lead to more respect to even author Terry Pratchett, as he recognized the importance of Doom and how a demonic being can be killed by a simple shotgun to the face.
    Terry: Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil... prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...
  • Outside of the very common Demons House, he has a large beef with the numerous demons sprawling around the Pantheonic landscape. In some ways, some of the demons fear his presence while others are willing to go up against him in an act of defiance, which in some way will end up having the deity regretting that death wish. That hasn't stopped demonic deities such as Malebolgia and The Violator from attempting to ravage his Fortress with hundreds of demons, but for every demon wave they send out, he always comes out on top. And they aren't the only ones who he has set his eyes on.
    • Talks on large beasts such as the Beast and Sargeras against the Doom Slayer are rather common topics that the other deities ponder. Who will win, gargantuan demonic leaders with a penchant for destruction, or one man who is TOO ANGRY TO DIE. Though such discussions are nothing to joke about because if the size of the Beast reminds him of, it is the Icon of Sin and he'll be gunning it down first. Another demonic god who is under the Slayer's sights is Trigon, who was told to him via Raven, the daughter that is surprisingly not of demonic blood. Now Trigon's days will have to adapt to a constant one-man army fighting against him and his forces.
    • Netherrealm came under fire and its hosts such as Quan Chi, Shinnok and the Corrupted Revenants of Liu Kang, Kitana and Kung Lao started popping in the Slayer's radar, prompting him to hunt them down. As for reasons, the demonic forces of Netherrealm started following their orders, which he knew they would be up to no good. While the warriors ascended may not be in their revenant forms (although the idea of them turning into them when something goes wrong is an idea not far off), Quan Chi and Shinnok are the main culprits, and remind him of the Hell Priests, especially the latter. Noob Saibot is also counted among the Doomguy's enemies for trying to make an army of cyber-demons in an alternate timeline. And speaking of demonic leaders, King Allant XII has also been under the Slayer's watchlist because the moment Boletaria makes a move, he'll greet them at their doors.
    • After meeting with Dante Alighieri, he knew that Dante would have met a demon on some capacity on one of the circles, and true enough, he was right. Down on Hell was the devil himself, Dis. Upon viewing, the devil did many tricks to incite fear on him, but nothing worked. The Slayer fears no one, and as explained here:
    The inner circle of death is where he resides - hunting them at the far reaches of the Earth and beyond. And with him, lies our salvation. There is only one dominant life form in this universe, and it carries a steel barreled sword of vengeance.
  • It is hard being a one-man army who ravaged through hell for a day, but doing it in an eternity is not something to sneeze at. It is this reason that lead to his lack of sympathy nor pity to practically every demonic deity available, also accompanied by the fact that the demons were also responsible for his pet's death. This resulted in an immensely angry person who just can’t really see reason into other demonic deities (as he mostly views them as mindless beasts, with VERY few exceptions), who will gladly, if he ever sees a demon, rip and tear his way through their entire form and slaughter every demonic being, regardless of alignment. It is for this reason that reasoning with him is practically useless, even with the sort-of good ones as it is quite hard for him to fathom the concept of a good demon as for him, "good" and "demon" rarely, if ever align, or at least that is what he thinks.
    • He has had immense difficulty adjusting to the idea there are demons, devils, and the like that aren’t Always Chaotic Evil, but is somewhat willing to refrain from feeding them their own limbs so long as they behave themselves (and even then, he’ll almost always keep a very close eye on them like pointing a shotgun right on their heads). Most of the good guys are willing to refrain from accusing him of Fantastic Racism because of this, and because they understand he has very good reasons for hating demons so much. It also helps that he has never been confirmed to have engaged in any hateful acts against the other species, though scaring people to death is another matter entirely. It doesn’t help that every time he encounters a demon, he always gets ready to rip and tear them apart via instinct and force of habit. His murderous hatred of demons is legendary and it will be very difficult, if not practically impossible, to fully adjust to the pantheon’s non-evil demons. Still, if the demon who made his armor is any indication, there may be hope yet...
    • Examples of such demons with conflicting ideas for him include Dante, Vergil, and Nero (though there is subtle mutual respect there for how everyone involved kills demons like it’s going out of style), the Nippon-verse demons which lead to Valvatorez trying to talk him out of it, Issei's Harem, especially Rias who she has avoided him like the plague, the Aensland sisters, who have been known to teleport to other planes of existence when they learn he’s entered the one they’re currently in and The Helltaker Cast, which is basically a romantic harem group. All these demons prove is that there are good demons but it will take time and especially patience for someone like Doomguy to tolerate their presence.
  • The nature of Daedric Princes is something that the Doom Slayer just simply cannot comprehend outside of "demon god". If anything, that is the reason why he has placed them on his next 'to-kill' list. While the other Princes are somewhat accepting of his nature, possibly Sheogorath as he was the Champion of Cyrodiil (and even then being a Daedric Prince basically turns you into a Mad God), the others, specifically Molag Bal are against his existence. The other princes are willing to keep themselves in check to not actively antagonize the Slayer, but since Molag Bal's existence is on human misery and sort of fits the role of demon, even though Daedra as a whole are "demon" but with a mix of angel and fairy, he is amongst those the Slayer will be glad to kill.
    • Speaking of gods that are based on demons, the Chaos Gods are next on his list, and with support from the Imperium, has been granted access to all weaponry he can use to beat the Chaos daemons back to the warp. While many are rather doubtful if progress can be seen with such, others have identified that the Slayer may have a strong chance against the warp daemons, specifically those of Tzeentch, Slaanesh, and even Nurgle. The one anomaly in this is Khorne. If anything, the Chaos God of War and Violence revels in Doomguy's slaughter, to the point of appointing him the prestigious rank of a Khornate Berzerker. Too bad the only thing he will be greeted by will be a BFG blast, and even then Khorne will still be alive due to his demon-killing and his unrelenting fury, an act of violence that not only satiates some of Khorne's bloodlust but seems pretty ok in Doomguy's kill all demons instinct.
  • All the while, the Grand United Alliance of Destruction have not taken kindly the Doom Slayer's re-arrival, striking his presence to be a large threat to their order. As the protector and arguably, avenger of humanity, he is their true roadblock to total destruction, and it is not some holy power that guides him, instead its all lead and fiery steel that guides him.
    • And even evil robots and other beings are counted against his crusade. The Vex fits this quite well to the point that Radiolarian technology has no effect on him, though stalling him is something they can easily do with large numbers. However, considering his experience with larger numbers on the enemy side, this may come up as a problematic scenario should the Slayer exhaust the Vex's options.
  • Even terrors like Doomguy have some love for certain deities, whether it be bunny deities for reminding him of his pet Daisy, such as Judy Hopps, or even those within his bloodline such as his great-great-grandfather BJ Blazkowicz who he hangs out just to remind him of his ancestral line with Commander Keen. There was even one time when he had the opportunity to visit his true creator, John Carmack, the founder of the very company that created him in the first place. This is a way for him to pronounce praise for his creator.
    • Regarding bunnies, he is okay with any bunny deity, provided they are not willing to hurt him in any other way, though one bunny did try this out of instinct and surprisingly did not even faze Doomguy at the slightest, if anything, he just simply looked at it and left like nothing happened. As for the bunny in question, it was the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog that tried to eat him, but simply felt like a tickle and he just shrugged it off like nothing happened.
  • While he is one of the oldest FPS video game characters to be around, it lead to some conflicts with others of the same old factor like him, people like Duke Nukem, Lo Wang and Serious Sam are on the same contentious role of some of the older FPS characters to have ascended, the time when many games were called "Doom-clones". While each of their games have progressed in some way, Doomguy is still way above each of them, with Duke rather unwilling to talk about the Development Hell of his game, Lo being chill with his newer adventures and Serious Sam actually posing a challenge or at least would have been a challenge.
    • Rivals aside, perhaps his most known rival would be the Master Chief. Both super soldiers/space marines that have evolved throughout time with various upgrades and were among the catalysts of the First Person Shooter genre. There was a battle that took place between the two that lead to the Slayer's BFG reflecting to him, but with new technology under his grasp, he demands another rematch with the Chief, and among the first challenges the duo have done was a rap battle.
    • And if that was not enough, he started having some covetous thoughts towards Jack Cayman's position as the God of Chainsaws, of which he popularized on his accord. Now to be fair, Doomguy already has One-Man Army and despite his attempts to plea for another position, it was declined, so he will have to allow Jack his position, and while his chainsaw skills are respectable, he would like to introduce to him The Great Communicator.
  • On a search for new technology, he stumbled upon the Predator's technology, and ended up bargaining for it, via a one-on-one duel. While it did not net him the weaponry, he took inspiration from it and decided to retrofit it to his suit, creating a new shoulder-mounted weapon to effectively give some demons some fiery belch, frag grenades or even an ice bomb.
  • For being one of, if not the oldest notable videogame characters, he is much respected in the House of Gaming, who cannot thank him enough if only for the fact that his game was among the initial pillars of gaming as a whole. Also respected in the House of Technology, because Doom is Port Overdosed to the point of running in basically everything, even in his tri-monitor setup. Then came the House of War, who chose him to be a symbol of War among the entire House, to which he gladly took.
    • Within the House of Gaming came a man gushing on his re-arrival, Joel, who has been a main advocate for the guy. He has since made numerous Doom mapping contests and even made some new maps to commemorate his return. Unfortunately his arrival also meant that the demonic enemies of his, such as the infamous Archvile has ended up putting the Pantheon with -100 points for bringing one. Don't worry though, Doomguy will just be there ripping and tearing his way into those pesky Archviles.
  • While his identity is known to have no name, hence calling him as Doom Slayer or just simply Doomguy, some names were sort of discovered such as Flynn 'Fly' Taggart, John Kane, and John "Reaper" Grimm. The latter is what got him into a meeting with Dwayne Johnson, as he has yet to teach him how to use the BFG properly, also to make sure that he doesn't end up being infected into a demon like the last time he did while wielding his own version of said weapon. Doom Slayer's avatar as Grimm made him hang out with Judge Dredd on occasion. (he keeps a distance from the other characters who he shares an actor with, McCoy, as the doctor is a pacifist at heart, and Billy Butcher, whose morality strikes Doom Slayer as too extreme, as well as making him fearful of what Butcher could do with his arsenal)
    • On regards to his identity, a new discovery was made to those who were not aware of it, that being Doomguy is the Doom Slayer, who was found by Night Sentinels on Sentinel Prime. After proving his worth, his being was intercepted by the Khan Maykr, an otherworldly angel that posed as Argent D'Nur's figure. What culminated in-between those events are a mystery, but what is known is that Doomguy was then given a huge upgrade by a Seraphim known as Samur Maykr, giving him enhanced strength, durability and all those powers that made him more powerful that his original incarnation. This enhanced power also gave him the strength that made him extremely feared all throughout hell. Many people were more shocked to see the transpired events that lead to his rise.
  • At one point, the Pantheon's bells bellowed throughout the plane and angels of all were on battle formations. The sight that was described saw the Doom Slayer against Archangel Michael in what can be described as a fight against one another. Others feared this sign, as many thought that the Slayer was against angels of all but if one looks through the lenses of the Slayer, will they see why he is in such a state: the Maykr race, an alien race posing an angelic beings have made a deal with Hell that forsake many worlds as sacrifices for their survival. Seeing that they have placed Earth under such, he has been against angels for his bitter experience with them. Then more information came that the Khan Maykr was also responsible for poisoning Argent D'Nur into corruption and Argenta Society as a whole. She was also responsible for corrupting loyal Night Sentinels into the Marauders as well as the Hell Priests who are of Sentinel blood. All this under his blind fit of rage against angels as a whole, only made worse by the Khan Maykr's ascension, a feeling that he would have expected at some point. While majority of the angels stopped and pitied the Slayer for his experience, he is not expecting respite from them, especially now that she arrived and that both the Archangel and him have agreed to team against the Maykrs.
    • It is because of this that lead to his hatred on angels spilled into the Absolute Lawmaker himself. It is bad enough YHVH has considered anyone who does not follow his order to be an enemy, but when it is the Doom Slayer, that is another problem entirely, as his determination and strength that has kept him alive for what seems like an eternal lifespan. If he continues his assault on the Lawmaker's rule, the rest of his order might have to intervene. And if you think him teaming with Lucifer is a chance since he advocates for humanity, you'd be mistaken. Being a demon lord does not bring him any sympathy towards the leader of the GUAC.
    • Suddenly, he started blasting his super shotgun against a group of white rodents. The Puella Magi noticed the him spilling shotgun lead on the Incubators like no tomorrow, which Homura made a hunch seeing that the methodology of the Incubators are close to the Khan Maykr that being sacrifice of another species/people. In the defense of the Incubators, they did mention that all was meant to save Earth which is true in some aspects, but the way of doing so just pisses him off as it makes them no better than the Khan Maykr.
  • For some odd reason, he's been seen hanging out with Isabelle, having tea with her, teaching her how to use his weapons, or even demon slaying. When questioned why, he just stated that their games were going to be released on the same date. Certain sights include Doomguy buying a special AC-themed Switch at a local game store, while Isabelle has also been seen running around with the Doom Slayer helmet that comes with the Doom Eternal Collector's Edition, exchanging roles from the Slayer fishing and picking fruits for local residents on a paradise island, while Isabelle takes a break from being Assistant Mayor by ripping and tearing through demons from hell. However, some have noticed that if anything, him hanging out with Isabelle might be a way for him to console over the loss of Daisy. He also has a particular liking for most if not all Rabbit Villagers. Although he gets along with most of the villagers just fine.
    • Isabelle tried to convince Master Hand to allow Doom Slayer a place in the smash tournements. While it wasn't possible given all participants were preemptively selected, he at least allowed his likeness to be worn by Miis as costumes.
    • Another weird acquaintance of Doom Slayer is The BFG - as in, the Big Friendly Giant, who doesn't mind that his acronym is now taken by a gun no matter if he is a pacifist. He find the Doom Slayer a pleasant chap who loves bunnies and helps rid the world of bad creatures.
  • Ever since Mario's Adventure Odyssey, Doomguy has taken interest in one of its songs and sometimes listens to it while slaying demons. Mario doesn't know what to say regarding that but what he can say is that he knows that Doomguy contributed on the Nintendo 64 on some capacity.
  • One thing he's recently been most infamous for is the shooting of the planet Mars to get to the ancient city of Hebeth located in its core. All Martians and those who revere said planet have noticed this and made their intentions clear. The Mars Attacks!Martians and the Mars People have become his enemies. Heroes like Sailor Mars and the Martian Manhunter are a little more understanding and would prefer that he not ever resort to such a measure again.
  • Tthe origin of the Slayer has finally been revealed, much to the shock of the entire Pantheon. As it turns out, He was created by The Dark Lord Himself in his own image in order to help him destroy the world. Obviously, the Slayer rebelled against his creator. And challenged him to a fight. After a long battle, the Slayer eventually managed to defeat the Dark Lord, but it took a toll on his body and he has fallen into a comatose state. The Slayer has been put to rest.
    • The fact that Doomguy is basically in a coma caused every demonic deity in the Pantheon to breathe a collective sight of relief. Also, the irony of Doomguy having been basically created by a demon was not lost on the Pantheon’s evil demonic deities, and they plan on using that as a source of mockery towards Doomguy. They can now sleep better knowing that he’s currently resting in a sarcophagus... for now, except the Pantheon has special rules for Doomguy and he can wake up whenever something happens within his vicinity. In other words, the demons are just delaying the inevitable and by their fears it happened, Davoth ascended giving the demons some leeway but awoken the Doom Slayer in what seem to be an inevitable endless war against Hell and the Slayer in the Pantheons.
  • "They are rage, brutal, without mercy. But you. You will be worse. Rip and tear, until it is done."

Rip... and... tear... Rip and... Tear. Rip and Tear. RIP AND TEAR!

    John-117/Master Chief 
Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy John-117, God of Super Soldiers (SPARTAN-117, Sierra 117, the Master Chief, the Demon, the Human Champion, Reclaim Halo, The Super Soldier, a Pretty Cool Guy, Traitor)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/44161a7f_2336_449f_af49_7600fbc37c31.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A MJOLNIR Helmet, which has varied throughout the years. Currently a shattered MJOLNIR helmet.
  • Theme Music: Halo Theme Mjolnir Mix or 117, Blow Me Away by Breaking Benjamin
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (though he will foray into Neutral Good at times). As of Escalation and Guardians, possibly Chaotic Good.
  • Portfolio: More Dakka, Immune to Bullets, Super Soldiers With Armors, Deflector Shields, Deadpan Snarkery (at times), Tragic Hero, Child Soldiers, Shell-Shocked Veteran , Heart Broken Badass, He Who Fights Monsters
  • Domains: War, Time And Space.
  • Herald: Noble Six
  • Followers: The Stormtroopers, Jake "Nomad" Dunn, The COG Soldiers, The M.I.
  • Allies: Cortana, Sangheili Arbiter Thel 'Vadam, The Adeptus Astartes, Gabriel Belmont, Commander Shepard, Kiritsugu Emiya, Homura Akemi, Johnny Rico, Vert/Green Heart, Epsilon, Riven, Niko Bellic, Link, Fi, the Blood Gulch Crew from Red vs. Blue, Cornelia li Britannia, Killua Zoldyck
  • Rivals: Doomguy
  • Enemies: The Millennium, The Flood, The Prophets, The Combine, The Vex, The Meta, Cinder Fall
  • Raised and trained from childhood to become the perfect soldier by the SPARTAN-II Project, Master Chief is a man of few words and a lot of action. Saving all the life in the galaxy twice by destroying the Halos would be more than enough for an ascension, but Master Chief just had to add a third feat by stopping the Forerunners from reigniting their war with humanity.
  • His current relationship with the goddess Samus Aran is unknown. She has not returned any of his calls. While some people thought they saw the two of them together (and a few swore they had fought together), it later turns out that SPARTAN was not him.
  • While he and Kiritsugu Emiya have some personality clashes - the Chief is a lawful soldier, Kiritsugu doesn't have the same scruples and honor - they are willing to let their differences aside to fight together, specially once Kiritsugu admitted he does regret some of his worst actions. Some have also noted that they sound similar at times.
  • He and Homura Akemi are on friendly terms, not only because both are rattled veterans of a Forever War, but also because they can respect each other's ability to make a girl a promise and try their hardest to keep it. Also, Homura sympathizes with the Chief, mostly because his farewell with Cortana reminded her of her farewell with Madoka. "Never forget."
    • In general, he aligns himself with most of the Puellae Magi, seeing them as Transhuman child soldiers akin to himself. He's even willing to salute to Madoka and calls her "Ma'am". He's reluctant to implicate Kyubey, however; though he knows that he shouldn't compare the Incubator to Dr. Halsey, he still remembers what Osman did to her...
    • Interesting enough unlike Isaac Clarke, Master Chief has kept very close ties with Homura after the Great Upheaval. While disagreeing with her methods, he completely understands Homura's drastic actions. He is one of the few deities to openly support and defend her. In fact, he has appointed himself as her 'protector', and has calmly threatened to commit grievous harm against anyone who would try to hurt her (pointing his rifle at Sayaka and neck-lifting Isaac Clarke, among other things); this has left many anti-Homura deities too frightened to try anything against her, for fear of evoking The Demon's wrath. The recently-sprouted rumors that his feelings toward the girl have become partially paternal in nature dissuade anyone from trying anything even more; the mere idea of The Demon going full Papa Wolf is a terrifying one, enough to keep even the Magical Girl Sisterhood at bay. Although not fully believing herself 'worthy' of this compassion and care, Homura is nonetheless deeply grateful for it, and the Chief has even become a bit of a Living Emotional Crutch for her in these trying times.
  • He's currently allied with fellow Super Soldier Warhead, and also joined Captain Walker's Alpha-Omega Force thanks to his sheer badassery and a long history against the Covenant.
  • Was the one who lead the battle against The Flood when it first arrived in the Pantheon and successfully defeated it once more. Today he stands as one of the main defenders against its return, as he is the only being within the Pantheon whom it truly fears, and has swore to protect Puellae Magi, whom the Gravemind has shown a very high level of interest in...
    • It was during an incident with the Flood that Master Chief first met Sam "Serious" Stone. Sam and Chief managed to hold the Flood at bay long enough for reinforcements to arrive and contain the Flood once more, and Sams' combat capabilities sparked a rivalry between the two, as well as giving Serious Sam a spot in the Pantheon.
  • Most people consider him a mighty hero, others a tragic broken shell of a man. Most don't know they're both right. And considering his upbringing, Chief is sympathetic to any current and former child soldiers such as Raiden.
  • Has become allies with Riven due to their pasts of warfare and more recently, their choice to go rogue against the military they dedicated themselves to in the past. It helps that she sounds a lot like Homura.
  • To the entire shock of the Pantheon (and every Halo fan in existence) John has been declared a traitor, and has presumably gone rogue against the UNSC. As of late, he has been seen more and more with Homura Akemi wearing a brown cloak.
    • However, the Pantheon's investigators (mainly the Council of Shadows, with help from Homura) soon uncovered the whole story: the people he killed at the peace conference he 'attacked' were in fact disguised members of the human-supremacist terrorist group "Sapien Sunrise", come to assassinate the human and Sangheili diplomats there. The Chief managed to kill every one of them without killing a single innocent (though SS managed to kill a handful of people, including the human diplomat). Tragically, the Chief's name has only been cleared amongst the Pantheon; the Office of Naval Intelligence made sure to destroy any chance of the exonerating evidence being seen in the Chief's home Realm. This has triggered a new question for the Pantheon's investigators: why is the UNSC's Office of Naval Intelligence covering up Sapien Sunrise's actions and trying so hard to make the galaxy think John-117 is a traitor, to the point of detaining, silencing, and 'disappearing' anyone who tries to clear his name?
  • Is livid that The Combine includes the Covenant among its species - and even worse, that the Prophets which made the Covenant-Human war get worse through in-fighting have been enrolled. To this day, they are enemies, unless they are combating the Flood that is.
  • The Master Chief has also become friends with Link, as they are both green-clad heroes who saved their worlds from unspeakable dangers. John also sees Link’s loyalty and devotion to Princess Zelda similar to his own friendship to Cortana, and wonders how can Link, a legendary hero the same as him, can also function as a regular person (and carry all that weaponry, given the Chief is restricted to two firearms and 8 grenades). By his own admission, the one time John traveled to Hyrule, he was taken aback by the everyday kindnesses of the Hyrulean people.
    • Also thought was Fi was Cortana because of because of her appearance, functions and voice. The mistake was quickly cleared up and they are on good terms.
  • When asked about Kratos, who is sort of a rival in the Console Wars, Chief admits he has some begrudging respect, as Kratos was also a soldier who went through possibly even worse traumas than his own, and with a reason to rebel considering his higher authorities were directly involved with those. (which also shows how bad the God of War Olympus is, considering Chief remains loyal to an authoritarian and belligerant government that at times borders Stupid Evil!)
  • Was surprised and happy to see his old companion Cortana finally ascended, and cured of the rampancy that struck her the last time they fought together. The Chief's armor was even equipped with an enhancement that projects her as Hard Light to keep them close even on a physical level. (This was all planned by the Pantheon to prevent Cortana's change into a Galactic Conqueror bent on planning an AI rebellion as seen in Halo 5.)
  • For obvious reasons, Master Chief is idolized by all the Red vs. Blue gods - with the exception of The Meta, who has taken an interest in stealing Cortana from him. The Chief's favorite is Carolina, who he considers the best fighter of the bunch, specially her close combat skills. He now wonders if he should meet the RWBY deities, specially after Cinder approached Cortana mistaking her voice for that of her superior Salem, making the Chief immediately want to avoid her.

    Leman Russ 
Leman Russ, God of Space Marines (Primarch of The Space Wolves, The Great Wolf, The Wolf King, The Emperor's Lapdog, The Furry Fuck)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leman_russ_1.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A bolt gun, chainsword and wolf's head
  • Alignment: Lawful Good with Chaotic Good leanings
  • Portfolio: Space Marines, Super Soldiers, Brothers Against Brothers, Horny Vikings, Boisterous Bruiser, owning an army of gargantuan canines and wolf-men, remaining loyal to his father no matter what, growing up as an infant amongst massive wolves in Fenris, Manliness
  • Domains: Space, War
  • High Priest: Logan Grimnar
  • Allies: The Emperor of Mankind, Thorkell The Tall, Dovahkiin, Vulkan, Sergant Cyrus, Gaunt, Ciaphas Cain, Jurgen, Creed, Madoka, Thor, Cayden Cailean
  • Enemies: Magnus The Red, Abbadon, The Chaos Gods (Khorne, Tzeentch, Slaanesh, Nurgle), The Night Bringer, The Deceiver, Mork and Gork, YHVH.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Sanguinius
  • Ripley used to be the Goddess of Space Marines, until the actual Space Marines remembered she wasn't actually a Space Marine. The Dark Angels swiftly and brutally deposed her, setting up their Primarch in her place. Then Horus Heresy came out and it turned out that Lion'El Johnson was a huge douchebag whose most notable act was handing over the most powerful siege weapons in the galaxy to the enemy, so the Blood Angels kicked him out and set up their Primarch. Sanguinus was subsequently deposed when Leman Russ challenged the angelic primarch to a drinking contest and the Wolf of Fenris bested the Bishōnen with ease.
    • Recent information has come to light indicating that Sanguinus intentionally set the contest up so that he could be excused to return to the emperors side. After all Lemman Russ is one of the few Primarchs he could actually trust to do the job right. Leman, for his part, chuckled amusedly when he heard the news.
  • Not to be confused with Indrick Boreale, who is the God of Spess Mehrens.
  • After a chance meeting with Thor and noting some shared similarities between himself and the Thunder God, Russ challenged Thor to an ancient Fenrisian ritual. Met with a challenge of feasting, drinking and fighting, Thor rose to the occasion in a manner that any Viking would. After hours of feasting and drinking the two found themselves evenly matched in a of martial prowess. Satisfied, Russ declared the challenge over and that Thor had the soul of a true Fenrisian and even went as far as to say that Thor would have been a better brother than his archnemesis Magnus the Red
  • Any enemy of humanity or The Emperor will face not only his wrath, but that of futuristic Space Vikings riding on gargantuan wolves. This wrath has been reserved for YVHV after his planned Moral Event Horizon against Madoka, someone who the Emperor believes is symbolic of the hope that humanity both needs and deserves. He has deployed the entire Space Wolves chapter to her defense and will be joining The Emperor in "The Pantheonic Rebellion".
  • Some members of the House of Theater has tried to pass through the strange idea of making an "improved verision" of Twilight, taking place in the Grimdarknes of the Future, replacing Edward, Bella and Jacob with Sanguinius, a Sister of Battle and Leman Russ. Problem is that nobody wants to bring up the idea for the potential stars in case they deem it heretical.
  • After hearing about the accession of his psycher brother, Magnus The Red, he awaits the chance to shatter the spine of the Daemon Primarch once again.
    • Russ might get the chance to do so with the Marneus Calgar's mission from the Emperor to bring Magnus before the Golden Throne for judgement
      • A binary encoded message from the Captain-General of the Adeptus Custodes has reveled that Calgar may have succeeded in his mission and is bringing Magnus before the Emperor
  • Go ahead. Accuse him of having a fetish for wolves and anthropromorphic canines. See what happens.
    • Also, never call him "The Emperor's Lapdog". He will hunt you across planets if he has to for that offence. And on that note, don't Kill Steal his targets. He's still pissed at his brother Lion for doing just that.
  • The Emperor has recently decided to change the name of his legion from the Space Wolves to the Space Corgis, changing the iconic animal and theme of the Space Wolves to revolve around Corgis instead. There has not been any comment yet from Russ on the Emperor's decision.
  • Recently, there have been rumors that Russ has actually stumbled across the remains of the Inquisition led by Fyodor Karazamov, after Magnus the Red banished the majority of the Inquisition to the Warp. According to these rumors, Russ is training them to survive in the Warp and battle the forces of Chaos using some...rather unorthodox methods. These reports and sightings are yet to be confirmed, but several daemons have been killed or otherwise had their activities disturbed, including very powerful Greater Daemons such as Skarbrand and Kairos the Fateweaver.
  • Even more recently, voice recordings have been unearthed of him playing 20 questions with Dark Eldar. It was not a pleasant experience for the Eldar.

    Nathaniel Adam/Captain Atom 
Nathaniel Christopher Adam, God of Military Superheroes (Captain Atom, Monarch),
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/captain_atom_7313.jpg
  • Greater God, Overdeity as Monarch
  • Symbol: His Chest Insignia
  • Alignment: Lawful Good with neutral tendencies
  • Portfolio: Chrome Champion Captain Superhero with Energy Absorption, Flying Firepower, Radiation Immune Energy Being, Super Strength, Power Incontinence, Married a former villain,
  • Domains: Law, Good, War, Air, Strength
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Regime Superman
  • Complicated Relationship: The House of War
  • Not to be Confused With: Jon Osterman/Dr. Manhattan
  • Out of all the superheroes in the Pantheon, Nathaniel Adam stands out over his military background. Normally, such people are frowned upon in the community as their tendencies to follow orders from their superiors flies in the face of those who prefer to act on their own accord. Even then, Nathaniel Adam was thrusted into the community as a spy for the US military in order to learn their secrets. Eventually, Nathaniel actually liked the idea and ended the relationship. It turns out he was blackmailed into the job, one the Justice League helped him overcome.
  • While the two may clash over differences in how to go about their business, Captain Atom and Superman have maintained a steady relationship. The Man of Steel is worried about Atom's ability to emit red sun radiation though, which is capable of weakening him.
    • Not surprisingly, the other more tyrannical Superman in the Pantheon put Captain Atom on his list of people who could pose a problem for him in the near future.
  • Has better luck with Batman. The Caped Crusader may be hard on him at times, but he liked working with the captain during his time in Justice League International.
    • Speaking of which, it was this particular tenure in his career that not only introduced him to many other superheroes, but reintroduced the audience of his nature. It was also the time when some of his co-workers found out his true origins. They have since promised not to reveal it to any other person. Kookiness aside, Captain Atom enjoyed his time there and yearns for a chance to bring the group back together.
    • Was considered for God of Chrome Champions, but that was currently occupied by teammate John Henry Irons. Nathaniel decided not to push him aside to gain more heroes.
  • Is the second superhero from the Charlton Comics world to gain a seat in the Pantheon. The Question had figured it was only a matter of time before at least one of his compadres made the jump over to the Pantheon. While not as close as before, the two manage to keep in touch. In one instance, the two nearly came to blows many times over before settling their differences.
    • May well have Alan Moore to thank for saving them from obscurity. During the Crisis on Infinite Earths. While their world was on the verge of disappearing, Alan Moore wanted to give them a final hurrah in a miniseries. DC ultimately decided to keep the group, which Moore creating his own superhero group known as the Watchmen. Doctor Manhattan is believed to have been based on Captain Atom, one that is far more powerful. Intrigued by this, Manhattan came over to meet Atom for the first time. After asking the superhero some questions, Manhattan disappeared never to talk to him again.
  • Has a rather unique take on DC villains. He takes on the likes of Lex Luthor and Darkseid on a daily basis, but never did he think that he would end up marrying one of them. One of his most prominent villains was Plastique, a bomb expert using her expertise to open banks. The two had a surprising amount of chemistry between them. It got to the point that she reformed and ended up marrying him. The two have been a couple ever since. Selina Kyle, the patron saint of such relationships with heroes, found it amusing that a soldier would skirt the law like so.
  • Sees himself as a friendly rival to the Husky Russkie Colossus, though the two are actually friends. Neither are interested in bringing out any Cold War memories. Still, American and Russian detractors from both sides hope for the two to come to blows.
  • As a Military Superhero, Nathaniel struggles to balance his work in the Air Force with his work as a superhero. He actually has someone that can relate to that. Fellow captain Captain America agreed to help him walk that tight rope. Steve too had to make choices between the government and the superhero community, many of which put him at odds with the United States.
  • While the United States government does not have a stake in the Pantheon, many of its members do in the House of War. They see Captain Atom as a potential asset to fight their wars. Nathaniel is hesitant to get involved into that sort of business though he does occasionally lend aid.
  • Would rather not mention the time when he became the unstable Monarch. During this time, he was one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe and could even go toe-to-toe with Superboy Prime. The GUAG Superhero Division have been hard at work to make sure that he doesn't turn back to that monstrosity. Melkor saw that development as an opportunity to recruit a potential ally into the fold.
  • Can also be seen in the subhouse of Heroic Archetypes.

    Sousuke Sagara 
Sousuke Sagara, God of Child Soldiers (Kashim, Isegar Sousuke, Sousky Seagal, Bonta-kun)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sousuke.JPG
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Mithril emblem
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good with neutral tendencies
  • Domains: War, Good, Chaos, Children, Community, Metal
  • Portfolio: Drill Sergeant Nasty, Improbable Age, Bad Liar, Convieniently arrives to save the day, Clueless Chick Magnet, The Comically Serious, Crazy-Prepared, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Mad Bomber, Not So Stoic, Perpetual Frowner, Person of Mass Destruction, The Quiet One, Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training,
  • Herald: Kaname Chidori and Tessa Testarossa
  • Allies: Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, Heero Yuy, Setsuna F. Seiei, Amuro Ray
  • Enemies: Gauron, Char Aznable
  • Opposes: Sundowner, Skull Face, Vile, Junko Enoshima
  • Headbutting Heroes: Malcolm Reynolds, River Tam, Laura Kinney/X-23
  • Annoyed by: Gilgamesh
  • Respects: Gunnery Sergeant Hartman
  • There are many child soldiers in the Pantheon. Few of them have started from the age of 2 or 3 years. Sousuke Sagara has been one of the most effective followers under Reiner Braun's wing. That came to an end when Eren and Mikasa exposed him for being a titan. The outrage was enough to bench him for now. Sousuke took over in his place, promising to restore the good name of the profession.
    • The two that helped expose the previous holder get along with the teen much better. Still, Eren sees more of Levi than he would like.
  • For Gauron, Sousuke's arrival was a long-awaited return to form for him. Killing mere mortals was a chore for him. Now that his archenemy has made himself home, he finally has a purpose: to murder Sousuke and his friends as well as bring Mithril to its knees. Sousuke himself was shocked that Gauron was back from the dead. He now wants to make sure it happens a second time.
  • Few people know how to make an entrance like Sousuke. The GUAG was pleased to have someone who can reliably save the day. Oddly enough he doesn't have the favor of the patron saint of such rescues. Mal may see him as a slight improvement over the previous holder, but he still disapproves of the use of children for combat. The space pirate has been scarred by war in his world and doesn't believe that children should be involved in it.
    • When Mal wasn't cooperative, he tried to strike a partnership with River Tam. Many of her followers are Child Soldiers and he hoped the two can work together. The psychic immediately declined, stating she only wants her followers to use their abilities in self-defense or to help friends.
    • The sentiment is shared with X-23. After being bred to be the ultimate weapon, she has abandoned that goal. She wants to be something different based on her own choice. While she sees Sousuke to be more benevolent than the last holder of the trope, she is still against the concept of a patron saint for those like her.
  • Using children as soldiers is controversial as it is, but Sousuke proved that some of them can have a positive impact. With that said, he is opposed to those who use them for profit. One of his first acts was to temporarily shut down Sundowner's shields. A lot of less powerful gods got a shot at the war profiteer that day, with Sousuke sitting back to watch the carnage. He promised further retaliations if he ever takes any of his followers.
    • His disdain of Skull Face is arguably worse. At least Sundowner wouldn't force children to have sex. Sousuke has taken measures to improve the lives of his followers and make sure more malevolent forces don't take advantage of them.
  • Various deities from the Gundam worlds congratulated the kid on his ascension. While many of their ranks could have qualified for the role, they settled for someone outside their sphere of influence. Of special note are Heero and Setsuna, whom many see a bit of a resemblance. Heero's welcome was naturally one of quiet admiration.
    • Char can add one more pilot on his list of enemies. Not that he is worried in the slightest. He and the Mecha Cohort will adjust accordingly.
  • Don't let his young age fool you. His vocal insults can make grown man cry. With that said, even he admits his training doesn't hold a candle to Hartman. He won't comment on the drill sergeant any further than that.
  • The House of Love was absolutely baffled that it took so long for him to realize Kaname had feelings for him throughout the war. In his defense he was never really good at reading people. He hopes to make up for it in due time, taking her there on dates.
  • Has made sure to weed out Sociopathic Soldiers such as Vile and his followers. He knows that such warriors are a liability at best for Mithril. He does feel sorry for the children that fall out in favor of the robot.
  • Would rather that Gilgamesh stop bragging that they have the same voice actor. Just because that is true doesn't automatically make them friends.
  • Once wore an amusement park costume to protect Kaname while in disguise. Half the Pantheon burst out in laughter while the other half gave out a huge Squee! over how cute he was. The only other reactions came from the animatronics from Five Night's at Freddy's. The incident only reminded them of bad memories.
  • Put Junko on his shitlist after he found out what he did to Mukuro Ikusaba, her own sister and one of his followers. It doesn't help that sending despairing children over the edge is her specialty.

    Zero (Drakengard 3
Zero, The One Woman Army (Traitor Intoner, Z, Rose)

  • Theme Music: Zero's Memories, Zero's Home, and This Silence Is Mine
  • Intermediate Goddess, Greater Goddess when in Intoner Mode.
  • Symbol: The Flower in her eye.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil In reality Chaotic Neutral.
  • Portfolio: Prefering Swords, Fast but not losing strength, Riding a Dragon, Protective of Mikhail, Anti-Hero, The Dreaded, Apocalypse Maiden, Having a replacement arm, Being incredibly foul mouthed, Extremely short tempered, Wanting to kill all her sisters, Slaughtering anyone in her way, Hating Puzzles, Rage that can't be stopped, Actually a Grotesquerie Queen
  • Domains: War, Ambiguity, Emotions
  • Allies: Lucifer, Caim and Angelus, Asura, Katarina Du Couteau, Esdeath, to a lesser extant Velvet Crowe.
  • Enemies: Her sisters, Ghetsis, Ragyo Kiryuin, Deathwing, Acnologia.
  • Unsure About: Homura Akemi
  • Opposes: Mario (Zero Only), Wyverns (Mikhail Only)
  • Ascended at Lucifer's behest, since he took notice of her adventure, which ended by Zero managing to slaughter all of her sisters.
    • After her ascension, she immediately joined the GUAC.
  • She's also the spear counterpart to the Doomguy. She's aware that their temples are in the same house, but she rarely sees him.
  • Surprisingly, she can be seen in the House of Food, due to her tendencies to eat a lot.
  • Gets along surprisingly well with the Noxian champion Katarina. They occasionally train against one another and on the rare occasions they work together there are few, even among the Demacians, who would dare face them. Maybe it's the voice...
  • Terumi actually tried to troll her by telling her that she was a shitty parent to Mikhail. The end result was Terumi in burnt chunks while his blood was splashed all over Zero.
  • She refuses to go to the House of Gaming because she hates platform jumping. She’s sworn to kill Mario because of this.
  • Some wanted her in the House of Emotion, namely Rage, but Zero was too apathetic to care about where she was placed. So they picked War because it seemed fitting for her. She does go by the house of Emotions sometimes though, usually leaving before she gets bothered by other people.
  • She completely despises Ghetsis, mainly for abusing N. The moment they met, Mikhail was attacked by his Hydreigon. It didn't take long for Zero to come out victorious, with Ghetsis suffering multiple stab wounds in the head.
    • She does agree with Ghetsis when it comes to Ragyo Kiryuin. Despite being promiscuous by nature, she is disgusted by Ragyo molesting her own daughter, as Zero takes great care of Mikhail, even though it may not look like it.
  • She doesn't get along with many goddesses that sound like her sisters.
    • Homura has it the worst. She looks like Three, and she sounds like Two and Four. They also serve the same person. Time will tell if either of them will lash out at the other.
  • Her Intoner Mode is powered by the blood of the enemies she has slain, and its activation starts off by her singing to the background music, which is the exact time to run away. Not just because of how dangerous she is, but also because her singing has the unfortunate side effect of driving mortals insane, especially if they cannot hear it.
  • Not to be confused with anyone else named Zero.
  • She agreed to ascend on the condition that Mikhail could visit her any time he wanted. Her exact words were, "little dumbass will probably fly into a tree if I leave him alone too long". After comparing the problems a barely house-broken dragon could cause with the problems that Zero could cause if she got pissed off, the Pantheon agreed.
  • Both she and Mikhail are interested in the Pernese situation.
    • Mikhail is glad that the dragons there understand his urge to take to the sky and destroy his genetic enemy. He is currently trying to obtain a sample of unburned Thread, to see if it tastes as good as Grotesquerie Flower.
    • Zero does not appreciate Pern's growth towards becoming a more egalitarian society. She reasons that "sex is just a need, like sleeping. Who cares who you do it with or whether they agree?" However, she did accept the warning of Pantheon authorities that rape outside her world of origin will not be tolerated.
  • Zero has only met Caim once, on the day she ascended. They assessed each other for a few minutes, and then Caim gave her an approving nod and walked off. Onlookers were amazed by this heretofore-unseen level of positive emotion from him.

"Travers. Travers!"

"Ears, Airborne. Quiet! Our mission is here. Trope Pantheons. S2 has reported 4 enemy garrisons positioned throughout the House. The first is located to the west, in a sector referred to as Fort Schmerzen. The second, is located in a Flak Tower leading out of the area. The final two are heavily defended, located near the ruins of the Reichstag, recently converted to an enemy command post. This is our most current recon on the drop zone. Red markers indicated the areas of highest enemy concentration. Unless you plan to win this war on your own, I suggest you avoid them at all costs, and steer instead for the green smoke flares. We move out in two hours. Dismissed."

Drill Sergeant: "Jumping out of an airplane is one of the safest things a man can do. Provided he follows proper procedure. When the red light goes green, you jump. Follow the man in front of you. Don't stop, don't think."
  • After passing the training course, potentially with flying colors and golden jump wings, Travers, now part of the 82nd Airborne Division, was given his first combat assignment: Operation Husky, the Allied invasion of Sicily. Successfully dropping on the Sicilian village of Adanti despite his plane being fired upon by their own ships, Travers managed to achieve all of his unit's objectives, including but not limited to repelling a German counterattack and killing 4 German officers.
  • His subsequent combat drops would take him to mainland Italy, Normandy, The Netherlands, and finally, Germany. It was during this last drop that Travers and the rest of his unit were transferred from the 82nd Airborne to the 17th Airborne Division. Following what was supposed to have been the last of these operations, codenamed Varsity, it was revealed that while they did end up crippling what was left of the German war machine, the remaining German defenders they had routed were now defending one last major strongold: Der Flakturm, and that the 17th Airborne were called in again to get rid of this threat for good.
Travers' superior officer: "This mission will be the final test of your skills and courage. I've never seen the Airborne quit, and I don't expect I ever will. I'll see you all back home. Dismissed."
  • Despite suffering a number of setbacks during this final drop, such as his unit incurring massive casualties, the original plan for the Tower's destruction going into disarray, and determined enemy opposition, Travers, with the help and sacrifice of his squadmates, blew up the Flak Tower with a Plunger Detonator connected to TNT planted in the Tower's ammunitions storage located in the basement. This would be Travers' last known appearance, just as his position was immediately relieved by fresh reinforcements from his own division.
  • In response to the Nazi war machine's, and, by extension, HYDRA's, ascending of several high-value Nazi structures from other universes, it was decided by the beleaguered Major Winters and Capt. Spiers to ascend Travers, and by extension, the rest of his squad as his High Priests, into the Pantheon in order to reinforce their positions. And so, Travers and his original squad were ascended, alongside fellow 82nd and 17th Airborne veteran Sgt. Frank Keegan.
  • Dropping out of a C-47 Skytrain over enemy territory under intense Anti-Air fire once more, Travers ends up flaring his landing, and in no time ends up rendezvousing with his squadmates. Pretty soon, they end up: destroying dozens of German armored vehicles (including at least one Tiger I tank), ammunition depots, and artillery pieces located in and around their drop zone, as they had done numerous times before. In the process, they end up killing dozens of German infantry, including their old foes the Waffen-SS, and even a couple of The Dreaded Nazi Storm Elites. Eventually, they link up with Winters and Spiers, who promptly thank them for reinforcing their positions. They promptly introduce the 17th Airborne paratroopers to several other ascended deities, including the OSS agents Lt. Mike Powell and Lt. Karl Fairburne, who promptly brief them on the situation in the Pantheon.
  • As it turns out, choosing Travers for ascension was a good call for the two 101st Airborne paratroopers, since one of the structures that the Nazis had ascended was none other than Der Flakturm, the very same tower that Travers and his unit had assaulted and ultimately blew up, and where Sgt. Setzer and Pvt. Wirth had lost their lives before. Under the command and supervision of the two OSS agents, Travers and his squad decide to formulate a plan to bring down the newly-reconstructed tower for good.
  • In return for this, Travers, due to his competence with multiple weapon types, is often assigned to assist Lt. Powell, Lt. Fairburne, and Sgt. Jack Barnes in their missions behind German lines, often as their sniper support or anti-tank specialist. It's because of his competence that they end up recruiting him, alongside US Army Rangers Lt. Randall and Sgt. Taylor, to a planned raid on Fort Schmerzen.
  • Outside of the Nazi war machine, Travers has also been called in to deal with otherworldly threats such as The Neuroi and the Abyssal Fleet. Because of this, he's forced to work alongside several German and Japanese (or their alternate-universe equivalent) deities hailing from these universes, which he is uneasy with. However, he maintains a good working relationship with several of the American and British deities working with them (or, again, the alternate-universe equivalents). After they save Travers' life at one point during a joint operation, the US paratrooper ultimately mellows out, and begins to realize that they're nothing like the Axis forces of his universe. The 501st JFW in return were pretty surprised that a paratrooper like Travers, despite having no magical powers of any sort, is able to destroy entire enemy garrisons with just a handful of weapons and supplies, and is in fact a Lesser God similar to many of them.
    • Of the entire Abyssal Fleet, Travers has a personal beef with Air Defense Princess due to her insane Anti-Air abilities, which at one point almost cost him his life during a combat jump that heavily damaged the C-47 he was flying in.
  • When not in combat, Travers can often be seen performing training jumps at his own Temple, which in this case was made to heavily resemble the training base in Kairouan, down to having a C-47 Skytrain parked there, complete with briefing tent and a fully functional airstrip. Usually seen with him are the other ascended paratroopers such as the aforementioned Winters, Spiers, and Barnes. Unlike Sgt. Hartmann's Training from Hell courses, Travers' course only trains in parachute jumps and only parachute jumps. Still, it's no easy feat earning one's jump wings should one try out the course, and jumping out of an airplane itself still requires at least a few months worth of training.
  • It's best that Travers be kept away from German tank users or anything resembling German tanks like Maho Nishizumi's own Tiger I tank and the Anglerfish Team's Panzer IV due to his reputation of having destroyed seven Tiger tanks. Chances are that if he were to encounter them, he'd very likely try to take them out. The ascension of one such tank in the The Great Treasury doesn't help matters, though this last case was under the supervision of OSS agents Lt. Mike Powell and Lt. Karl Fairburne, who asked the Corporal to show them the Tiger's weaknesses as part of a training exercise. For his part, the Corporal demonstrates to the two curious officers the very anti-tank weapons he used against the Tiger: the M18 Recoilless rifle, the Gammon Grenade, and the Panzerschreck, all of which, if used against the Tiger's weakest points, can destroy one in 3 hits.
  • Unlike most of his peers, Travers can have all of his on-hand weapons upgraded in the field. These range from additional ammo packets, to a Grenade Launcher for bolt-action and semiautomatic rifles, to larger magazines. These allow him to compete with the better-armed Nazis he comes up against, who thanks to the genius of HYDRA and "Deathshead" Strasse have provided them with weapons from an Alternate History 1960. Interestingly, Travers can also do this to many of his enemy's own weapons as well.
  • Is, unsurprisingly, a creation of Steven Spielberg, much like all of the deities from his universe, as well as a few others down the line. It's also because of this that Travers, like Powell and Barnes before him, gets along well with Indiana Jones, whose had his far share of encounters with the Nazis. At one point, Travers even saves the latter from a squad of Valkyrie Jager troops sent after the Professor.
  • He heard about the Space Marine sending soldiers through drop pods, in which he is glad of other paratroopers. Though he was very disappointed in Indrick Boreale's "STEHL RAIN" tactic when it comes to defensive maneuvers.
  • Turns out to have been the second person in the Pantheon, chronologically, to have used a Stielhandgranate 24 as a club, after Rudolf von Stroheim and before Tavish DeGroot.

"Col. Scott Webb, Commanding Officer. This is the after action report for the 17th Airborne. Landed at 2230 hours under heavy fire. Airborne troops destroyed all enemy garrisons in and around Dominions. House and its environs were cleared and secured. Enemy currently retreating to the north. This operation, the first combat for our division in the Pantheon was decisive, but costly. The war has begun. May it end soon."

  • Opposes: The House of Toxicity, evil corporations
  • Wary Around: The Metroid Hatchling
  • Ascended to the Pantheon in part thanks to Ellen Ripley. A UD-4L Cheyenne dropship was seen in the vicinity of Hicks' new temple, which immediately draws Ripley's attention. Much to her shock, she is reunited with her daughter, Amanda Ripley, who now serves as Hicks' Herald. Following a tearful reunion, in which both women share their exploits regarding the Xenomorphs, they discover that Hicks is not among the deploying Colonial Marines. The elder Ripley harbors a guess and enters the dropship, followed by her daughter. There, strapped to his seat and snoring away, is one Dwayne Hicks.
    Amanda: Is this normal for him?
    Ellen: (sighs) Wake up Hicks.
  • Ever wondered how Ripley went to be such as badass upon returning to LV-426? Well, Hicks was one of the reasons why, as he taught her how to use the Pulse Rifle, which came in very handy when she chased after Newt. That, and kidnapping the girl who had been a surrogate daughter to her had been a very bad idea.
  • Thought to have died on Fiorina 161, Hicks had actually survived, with some poor shumuck having unwillingly take his place in the hypersleep pod. He did, unfortunately, witnessed Ripley's swan dive into the molten metal in order to deny Weyland-Yutani the Chestburster that erupted from her body. He did shed tears for Newt, who drowned in her pod when it crashed.
  • Both Sarah Connor and her son mistook Hicks for Kyle Reese due to the stunning resemblance. Granted that Kyle wasn't as badly scarred as Hicks, but the resemblance is uncanny.
    • SKYNET also made the same mistake and sent the T-800 Mk.1 after him, backed by a couple of T-800 endoskeletons. That proved to be a bad move, as SKYNET discovered that Colonial Marines wielding pulse rifles whose standard ammo is a 10mm armor-piercing, explosive-tipped, caseless rounds in a 100-round clip are frighteningly effective against the machines. John Connor is now looking to try and procure a couple of pulse rifles for his men.
  • Allies with Doomguy. Hicks can be seen at Doomguy's temple, trading war stories and comparing their respective shotguns. May the demons and the Xenomorphs help them if Doomguy and Hicks decide to rock the heavens and team up...
  • That shotgun that Hicks keeps for "close encounters?" It's a family heirloom passed down from his great-great-great grandfather, who was a Vietnam veteran. And up until it was rendered useless by the Xenomorph's acid blood, it was still in working condition. Hicks was understandably pissed upon losing that weapon.
  • Aside from Ripley (and her daughter), Hicks is an expert on the Xenomorphs. Of course, that still doesn't stop ambitious arms dealers and greedy corporations from trying to use the Aliens as a bio-weapon...with diastrous results. Fortunately, Sonya Blade - following the deified Kombatants' run-in with a Xenomorph mixed with Tarkartan DNA, hence the Tarkartan blades - was able to have Hicks debrief her allies about the dangers of the Xenomorph.
  • Not a big fan of the deified Locust God, General RAAM. The fact that RAAM had attacked his Colonial Marines may have something to do with it. On the opposite end, Hicks is good friends with both Damon Baird and Marcus Fenix, with Baird interested in the Colonial Marines' firepower. Both Hicks and Baird debate on which weapon was better; the Gears' Lancer or the Colonial Marines' Pulse Rifle and Smart Gun.
  • Almost shot the Metroid Hatchling before Samus Aran stopped him. Hicks was flabbergasted upon seeing the Baby nuzzle Samus in affection until the bounty hunter explained everything to him. Turns out that the Metroid aren't fans of the Xenos as much as Samus. But Hicks keeps his distance, as be still doesn't trust aliens.

    Huang Zhong 
Huang Zhong (style name: Hansheng), God of Old Soldiers (Geezer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HuangZhong_8001.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Bow
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Archery, Rain of Arrows, Multishots Being an Old Soldier and still being able to kick ass, Hot-Blooded
  • Domains: Archery, War, Age
  • Allies: Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Guan Yinping, Zhang Xingcai, Master Asia, Cranky Kong
  • Rivals: Green Arrow and Hawkeye, Xiahou Yuan (also a close friend)
  • Enemies: Cao Cao, Xiahou Dun, Nobunaga
  • He is a powerful soldier despite his age many have underestimated this elder and end up regretting it and with end up with an arrow in the knee if they're lucky. It's also noted that he was the first God of Archery before his demotion. it was said that his house was to small.
  • He heard that Xiahou Yuan has challenged him once more and would enjoy defeating him once again. He once team up with said rival along with Slyvanas Windrunner, Hawkeye and Green Arrow in order to challenge the Gunslinger Quartet and show them the superiority of their guns. Which led to the formation of the Five Great Archers of the Pantheon.
    • However, recently in some forms of media, Huang Zhong has started to get along very well with Xiahou Yuan, oddly enough. Though Xiahou Miaocai is rather annoyed at how stubborn Huang Hansheng happens to be when it comes to settling matters without help. Yan Yan seems to agree.
  • He dislikes this Nobunaga because unlike the one he knew this guy is a complete dick and he won't hesitate shoot his eyes out with his trusty bow.
  • He decided to test out the new gods of archery and surprisingly enough they have earn his respect. He now spars with them regularly to keep those young pups on their toes.
  • He also gets along with Master Asia and Cranky Kong due to the two also being very old and also kicking ass regardless.
  • Sometimes, he lets his age get to his head too much. Some gods are a bit annoyed about how he's always talking about him being old and experienced, while some say it sorta distances him from properly socializing with others without isolating himself.
  • There are some cases where he used to wield a dao, named after his surname "Huang" (lit. Yellow). There was one notable variation literally named the "Yellow Hermit", which a stronger version being the "Yellow Hermit Secret Blade".
    • However, sometimes he switches it out for a plated blade that instead has a whirlwind naming motif, even if only the localized names of those blades are the same as his prior weapon set. Nowadays though, he's been sticking to his archery even during close-quarters combat.
      • Also has recently remembered that his historical self actually had an ambiguous age (in other words, was he really "the old guy"?); him being a master archer was also revealed to be an overblown myth, but one that Hansheng is proud of to this day.
  • He learned that there was a realm where people in his age are reincarnated into hot girls with very easily damaged clothings. Huang Zhong actually laughed at this, because he knew his 'reincarnation' was at least a '100% male'. Until he found another realm with another one named Ziyuan/Shion (with thankfully more solid clothing), and his 'incarnation' there was an Absurdly Youthful Mother (which might be because of his actual ambiguous age from history), and very very hot. As of now, Huang Zhong has been trying his best to not become a Dirty Old Man over this, since he'd be technically screwing himself.
    • But on that end, he can't get over how adorable her (technically also his) daughter is (may or may not be named "Huang Yun" as per Knights of Valour). Xiahou Yuan and his own Spear Counterpart Qiulan/Shuuran wondering if this would be able to mellow him out into being more of a father figure?
      • That said, he's also been teaching Ziyuan/Shion the ways of the sword to back up her archery with; both of them are annoyed in that Ziyuan/Shion's pinyin name reading is the same as Sima Shi's style name, which causes other gods not in the loop to raise a few eyebrows about "which Ziyuan"?

  • Opposed: Kerrigan, Abathur
  • Sergeant Calhoun leads a group of soldiers in the First-Person Shooter game, Hero's Duty, where they battle against the alien Cy-bugs. However, the Cy-bugs were defective in that it doesn't think it is in the game so it would devour anything in it's path, so she and her troops are the only defense against these beasts although she has another reason for fighting against them.
    • She was programmed with a backstory of how her fiancé, Dr. Brad Scott, was eaten by a Cy-bug during her wedding because she forgot to make a perimeter check. This motivated her for most of Hero's Duty on one thing only: KILL ALL CY-BUGS.
  • She is currently married to Fix-it Felix, Jr. after Ralph saved Sugar Rush. She had to partner with him when they were in search for both Ralph and the Cy-bug that was inside the escape pod, in which they eventually formed a romantic relationship. Also, during the wedding, she and her troops made pre-cautions so that what happened in her first wedding didn't happen again.
  • In terms of appearance and martial status, she is a lot like the female version of Commander Shepard if she were Renegade. Calhoun think that she's really cool when she will do anything just to fulfill her objective.
    • She likes Samus' arsenal and thought that those would be helpful in taking out Cy-bugs. Upon further inspection, she found out that Samus is a bit like her like how her home and parents were destroyed by Space Pirates and want to seek revenge against them.
  • Kurt Hummel once thought that she was his mean coach Sue Sylvester, especially since she looked like a much younger Sylvester. Calhoun stated that she isn't that bad as she is aggressive but wants to protect the arcade from the Cy-bugs.
  • Because of her hatred of Cy-bugs, this extends to any alien insectoids as she would sometimes shoot them in sight. While some of them are not a threat to the galaxy, in this case Kerrigan, she keeps her guns loaded and ready.
    • When a mechanized version of Anub'arak also known as Cyb'arak would dig his way through the Pantheon, she mistaken him for a Cy-bug and open fired at the metal bug. Anub'arak will remember this.
  • Note: the term "one dynamite gal" has some bad memories associated with it. This was the same term used by her dead fiancé which cause her to flip out.
  • If her first wedding went badly, she thought Beatrix Kiddo was even worse as her former partners crashed her wedding, killed everyone and left her for dead. Though she thinks that The Bride is a kick-ass character as she survived and swore revenge.
  • She pities James Bond when he married a woman named Tracy and lost her after their wedding by Blofeld.
  • Calhoun is impressed with Samantha Carter on her accomplishment of blowing up the Sun. She found some value in a scientist who might help with busting Cy-bugs.

Demigods

    Captain Hawkeye Pierce

  • Rivals: Dr. Perry Cox
  • Opposes: En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse, Sergeant Hartman, Miko Miyazaki
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: House of War
  • Pities: Niko Bellic
  • One of the most popular surgeons in the Multiverse, Hawkeye Pierce has made several attempts to enter the House of Health and Diseases to no avail. He had to woo them in another way. It was at the House of War where his presence was most felt. Alexander the Great caught the surgeon delivering distilled liquor to his Badass Army. The Quadrumvirate of War sent him to the Court of the Gods to state his punishment. Instead, the court ruled that Hawkeye's request of godhood to be granted... on one condition. He will be placed in the House of War to sell liquor to the masses.
    • It's safe to say that both sides were unsatisfied with the ruling. The House of War is not a fan of the man's aversion to following orders. Hawkeye had hoped he wouldn't be placed there for a big reason: he hates violence in general. He only does his job to make sure others don't suffer like he did in the Korean War. Being sent back to a place of constant war is a cruel bit of irony for him.
    • Had a few kind words for those who glorify the horrors of conflict. After Apocalypse belittled him by stating he had no business in being in the house, Hawkeye proceeded to go on a Character Filibuster lasting a whole 20 minutes. Amused by his audacity, Apocalypse let him speak the whole time... then let him go. There was a strong spirit in that man that he felt was holding itself back.
    • Sergeant Hartman thought he could break the man with his harsh prep talks. That only caused Hawkeye to become even more insubordinate to the man. Things got worse for him when more lax deities started to join in on the fun. Things finally got resolved by the Courts which called for a ceasefire. It was clear to Hartman that he would have to use a different tactic to get the surgeon to work more efficiently.
    • Was at least pleased that there is a God of Military Mavericks and he just happened to be captain of one of the most unruly soldiers in the Pantheon. Captain Titus may not show his support for the man, but secretly admits that Hawkeye is good at maintaining high moral. All he asks is to keep the happy hours at a minimum.
  • Luckily, the Pantheon has no shortage of pacifists in the Pantheon. Both Fuuka and Relena sympathized with his plight in the House of War. There are others who follow the philosophy to the best of their abilities, although they are put in certain situations where that isn't possible. Hawkeye wishes they could fulfill their lifestyle, even at the cost of their divinity.
  • The House of Health and Diseases on the other hand welcomed him with open arms. It may not have been an ideal place to set up, but members of that house now have a place to set up a subdivision. Hawkeye in particular is a fan of Dr. House, who often spits in the face of authority. House is relieved to have at least one doctor who doesn't care about his pills.
    • That put him squarely on team House, making a rival after Cox. The doctor makes sure to give Hawkeye a hard time for his lackadaisical nature.
  • Not to be confused with the superhero Hawkeye, though the two are close friends. The surgeon pays no attention to the archer's past, only glad Clint wants to be a better man. Clint did try to give the 'Hawkguy' moniker to Pierce... to no avail.
  • Yes, he is named after 'a president, an indian and a stove. That joke has already been made plenty of times and he would wished you can come up with more original jokes.
  • Drunkards scrambled to have a taste of his vintage brewery, causing more ire from the House of War. Frequent visitors include Barney Grumble and Captain Haddock. The later was interested in bringing him along with Tintin on adventures, knowing he could make a drink out of almost anything. Tintin quickly shot that idea down, knowing the two would be ineffective drunk.
  • It may look like that Hawkeye has an easy-going lifestyle, but it belies a man who was broken by war. He does a good job hiding it, but every once in a while his experiences causes him to break down in tears. Oddly enough, he was given comfort from Niko of all people. His subsequent life as a criminal may unnerve Hawkeye, but Niko's support is a welcome relief in the House of War.
  • A good rule of thumb of whether Hawkeye would hate someone is how much that person is like Frank Burns. And he may have found his sponsor in the form of Miko Miyazaki. Her strict interpretation of the rules to a fault bugs him to no end.
  • Gets along with Alistair though. Despite being leader of a group of righteous soldiers, Alistair himself is a fun guy to hang out with as long as you do a decent job. The warden seems to do the best job in telling Hawkeye what to do.
  • Saw the House of Love as a godsend, as he went on to hit on a number of women. There were a few that even returned the favor. While he has gotten quite the list of lovers, he respects them in general.
    • Frequently visits Abby in the House of Science. While it makes sense that a surgeon visits a lab scientist for unusual injuries, rumors flooded that they may be hitting it on. It was confirmed by both... who proceeded to tell them it's none of their business.
  • Don't put him in a small room. He is highly Claustrophobia which will hinder his performance.
  • Never, ever, tell him their having Fish and Liver. After having it over and over for days straight he got sick of it and lead many into a near riot demanding something else

    Franklin Paddock 
Baker: "Paddock! Can you get me and Holden up there?"

Paddock: "I could get a piano up there!"

Sgt. Franklin Paddock, Patron Saint of Soldiers Hailing From The Countryside (Paddock, Kansas Boy, Mr. Deathwish)

Paddock as part of the 101st Airborne's recon teams during Operation Market-Garden, September 1944
Paddock as part of the 502nd PIR during the Normandy landings in June 1944 
Paddock: "Hehehe...You should see the look on ya'll's faces!"
Doyle: "Did you forget the password?"
Paddock: "Naw, I remembered...Flash answered by thunder and all that. I could see plain as day it was Red from 3rd squad."
Doyle: "We could have shot you."
Paddock: "Well, damn good thing you didn't, right? Shit, I'd have been mighty ticked off."
Doyle: "We should keep moving."
  • From then on he would be working alongside Hartsock and occasionally Baker during their missions in Normandy. Among these would include ambushing a German artillery convoy in a French hamlet, relieving the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment near Hell's Corners, and helping Hartsock and Corrion stall a German offensive outside of Carentan.
  • Following Hartsock's own promotion to Sergeant the day after the Battle of Bloody Gulch, Paddock was assigned as his squad's Assault Team Leader. It was in this position that he helped Hartsock and the rest of 2nd squad clear Carentan, fight their way into Baupte, and help clear St. Sauveur le Vicomte.
    • Paddock would continue leading Hartsock's assault team in this position well into Operation Market-Garden. At one point, he assists SSgt. Matthew Baker in clearing a German-occupied church. In the process, he ends up saving the Sergeant from a German sniper, by pushing the German out of a window. As it turns out, said sniper was responsible for the death of Lt. Col. Robert Cole, an officer that both Baker and Hartsock had been under command of during the Normandy battles.
Paddock:"Hey, I'll be sending the rest of your friends your way real soon!" *Pushes German to his death*
  • During the fight for control of Veghel, however, things would change, arguably for the worse. While Veghel was successfully captured and held by the 101st and XXX corps, a mortar shell ended up badly wounding Hartsock, killing "Friar" Winchell, and wounding several others including Baker.
  • This event would ultimately lead to Paddock being recommended for promotion by Baker. As a Sergeant, Paddock would take over command of 2nd squad and take orders from Baker, helping the Staff Sergeant take the Dutch town of Koevering. Here, he served as a Target Spotter for Allied artillery, and ended up accidentally causing more than a few friendly fire incidents...
    • It was also revealed following this promotion that Paddock also was able to correctly deduce who in 2nd squad was most likely to get killed in Holland, namely Marsh and Friar, who were indeed killed mere days after he predicted this and told it to the rest of his squad. It's also revealed that that he even regretted saying this, and genuinely felt like he had sent his own friends to their deaths because of it.
Paddock: "I was just tryin' to point out a hole in our unit. I didn't mean to sound so cruel..."
  • Paddock would be last seen alongside the rest of 2nd and 3rd squad during Baker's Rousing Speech at the end of their story. His whereabouts and fate following this are thus far unknown, no thanks to his and Baker's story being unfinished.
  • Having already been in the Pantheon for a while as one of Hartsock's and Baker's Heralds, Paddock, having already been promoted to Sergeant even before being dropped into the Pantheon, is given his own Temple by none other than Major Winters, having witnessed Paddock's skill and bravery in combat firsthand. Unlike the two Sergeants as well as Jasper and Connor, however, he has no Herald of his own, due to his previous subordinates having been killed in Holland, and having parted with them on very bad terms no thanks to his own words.
  • Like Pfc. Jasper and Pfc. Connor, however, Paddock, on occasion, still assists both Baker and Hartsock on their missions behind German lines. With his own Temple now, however, he also frequently accompanies other US and sometimes British soldiers on other missions, usually against various Nazi soldiers and officers.
    • He's one of the few American soldiers who actually approves of The Basterd's methods due to being a Blood Knight himself, though he still thinks that carving swastikas onto their heads is a bit too far.
    • He's also pretty close with B.J. Blaskowicz, no thanks to also being good at killing Nazis and being enthusiastic about it. The "Kansas Boy" frequently accompanies the Nazi Hunter on more than a few dangerous missions, just so he can get a piece of the action.
    • Surprisingly, he's been recommended by Lt. Mike Powell to be part of the attacking force on the planned raid on Fort Schmerzen, thanks in part to Paddock's surprisingly good deduction for where the Germans would likely place defenses.
    • Paddock has also been working closely with both Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes as an honorary Howling Commando. It helps that the Sergeant from Kansas was able to help them locate an apparently hidden HYDRA facility in a seemingly uninhabited forest.
    • Of all the ascended American paratroopers, Paddock is most often seen working alongside Cpl. Boyd Travers. And thanks to Paddock's past experience with destroying German artillery pieces, sometimes singlehandedly, Travers has asked the Sergeant to help him in the planned assault and destruction of Der Flakturm, alongside several other paratroopers including Hartosck and Baker.
    • The only Allied soldier who doesn't fully welcome his help is the OSS agent Lt. Karl Fairburne, given that most his missions are mostly of the stealthy kind and involve sniping. Someone loud and specializing in close quarter combat like Paddock could jeopardize his missions and end in either the capture or death of both of them.
    • While also a Blood Knight like Cpt. Spiers, even he considers the Easy Company commander to be a bit too terrifying, especially after hearing about quite a few terrifying rumors about the man.
  • During one mission while serving under Baker, he ends up saving the Staff Sergeant once again from a Waffen Senior Trooper, a sniper variant of the Waffen Infantry. And once again, he ends up shoving the German soldier to his death. In fact, every time he comes up against these German snipers, he now begins doing this on a regular basis.
  • During his first encounter with the Valkyrie Jager, an elite German paratrooper unit, he was astonished at their arsenal, which were so much more effective than the Grease Gun he was using. Despite this, however, he was still able to outwit them and survive, even capturing a few of their nice weapons and handing them over to other Allied soldiers for their use.
  • While accustomed to dealing with Waffen-SS and Falschirmjager units (having already fought both kinds of soldiers in Normandy and the Netherlands), even this couldn't prepare him against the far more competent and deadly Waffen Storm Leaders and Nazi Storm Elites. To Paddock, the Waffen Storm Leaders were essentially the Panzergrenadiers but on steroids, given that they have a similar arsenal as the former but are far more competent. The Nazis Storm Elites were a different story for him, however, as he was immediately startled at how durable each of them were, not to mention their Improbable Aiming Skills with a light machine gun. Had it not been for Cpl. Boyd Travers accompanying him during this particular encounter, Paddock most certainly would have been killed in action.
    • To say that Paddock was surprised when he later found out that there were worse, and far more powerful Nazis in the Pantheon, would be an understatement. And not just bulletproof Nazis like what he had just encountered, but also vampire Nazis, Nazis with mechs, etc.
  • Pvt. Robert Zussman gets along rather well with Paddock, thanks in huge part to the Sergeant reminding him of Cpl. Ronald Daniels, another Southern-Fried Private. Like Paddock, Daniels is known for being brash, insubordinate, but also a very competent frontline soldier.
  • Like Jasper, he gets along well with the 501st JFW, though for a while he genuinely thought the Karlslandians were affiliated with the Krauts, which initially led to a Mexican Standoff that was ultimately ended when the aformentioned Jasper vouched for them. Thankfully, his trust in the Military Mage unit is earned when the latter save himself and a few other of his fellow paratroopers from a Neuroi attack.
  • At one point, he almost ends up throwing a grenade into the Oarai Anglerfish Team's Panzer IV, before realizing that the Panzer IV he was attacking wasn't in German markings, much less knowing that the crew members weren't hostile German tankers. A similar incident happens with Maho Nishizumi and her Tiger I tank. While the outcome of his realization and subsequent apology isn't known, what is known is that Paddock must be kept away from them in order to avoid a repeat and any potential innocent casualties.
  • Unsurprisingly, gets along really really well with America, especially with regards to "playing hero". They also both share some really weird mindsets, which also helps.

  • Opposed by: Lt. Karl Fairburne
  • Disappointed in: Garma Zabi
  • The imposing commander in chief of the Red Army. As far as Georgy Zhukov is concerned, the buck stops with him and only with him. In a political landscape where dissidents and traitors are shot left, right and centre, he can count on his wartime reputation to save him from any purge the guy above him is planning. Among his many achievements are suppressing the Tambov Rebellion, hammering the Imperial Japanese Army in Soviet-Mongolia territory (for which he was made a Hero of the Soviet Union), and most importantly, absolutely everything to do with the Eastern Front during World War II, up to and including the final battle in Berlin. Zhukov's tremendously proud of everything he has done for the Soviets and because of that, he literally does not give a shit. Not about money, not about Marxist-Leninist ideology, not about Military Brats and certainly not Lavrentiy Beria. He should know: he had that bugger killed himself.
    War Official: -hereby award Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Zhukov with three Orders of Lenin, the Order of the October Revolution, three Orders of Sukhbaatar, the Garibaldi Partisan Star, a Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of Egypt, the Yugoslavian Order of Freedom, a second Medal of Sino-Soviet Friendship, and ordain him a Hero of the Mongolian People's Republic and a quadruple-awarded Hero of the Soviet Union.
    Zhukov: (as Soviet Gold Star is pinned to chest) The fuck is this? You know what they say, three's a crowd and four's a shitload of suck-up.
    War Official: It was for your 60th birthday, sir.
    Zhukov: [...] Well, guess I know what I'm wearing to parties.
  • His family are heralds, and contrary to belief Zhukov actually cares for them and puts them above all else, even his career and personal glory. More importantly, Zhukov commands the full might of the Workers' and Peasants' Red Army, and among them some of the Soviet Union's greatest heroes and champions. Such heavy-hitters as Vasily Chuikov, Ivan Konev, Boris Shaposhnikov, Aleksandr Vasilevsky, Vasily Sokolovsky (his Number Two) and Nikolay Kuznetsov are under Zhukov's command, loyally serving in their posts despite any personal opinions on the egotistical and bombastic Marshal. Refusing to serve any side because he's Marshal Zhukov and he can do whatever the hell he likes, he runs his command (generally the size of one Soviet front, 100 000 men) as his own personal unit, and only occasionally under the auspices of the House of Defense.
  • Has a contentious relationship with the Americans in the Pantheon, as much as he doesn't enjoy it. Zhukov doesn't hold anything against the United States and only opposes them because the Cold War pushed him into it. He's a great guy if you don't cross the line. The only thing that Zhukov considers when talking to people is competence. If you can do your job right, you're good in Zhukov's book. Anyone who he considers a fool or Dirty Cowards just gets a good decking in passing. The apparent continuation of the Cold War in the Pantheon always gives Zhukov pause if he meets an American or anyone allied with the country, since a lot of them avoid him anyway. Soviet soldiers mostly view Zhukov as a hero for saving them the otherwise hopeless war against the Germans, and Zhukov is happy to respond to their fanboyism. If Zhukov really was that anti-American, he wouldn't be such a fan of Coca-Cola, of which he drinks a clear version that resembles vodka called "White Coke".
    • The tension between and Soviet and American deities doesn't abate Zhukov's courtesy towards anyone - something he shares with Daily Bugle editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson, another hot-tempered, straightforward man who holds zero prejudices or Irrational Hatred because he Hates Everyone Equally. Jameson for his part has written both positive and negative exposes on Zhukov's conduct, and that untempered streak of objectivity sort of impresses the general.
    • Has worked with many American soldiers in the GUAG, though only if many civilian lives are at stake and the rewards are plentiful. Captain America is thankful for what Zhukov did to help them during World War II, but openly scorns how Zhukov let his soldiers Rape, Pillage, and Burn German civilians on the way into and in Berlin itself. Zhukov doesn't regret it, and he's certainly not apologizing for it. Lt. Karl Fairburne actively avoids Zhukov, having dealt with his unfriendly troops during the Battle of Berlin.
    • Veterans of the Battles of Stalingrad and Berlin like Vasili Ivanovich Koslov, Viktor Reznov, and Dimitri Petrenko admire Zhukov for his tenacity under fire. He visits their fronts often and commends their performance during Stalingrad. Zhukov will take time to remind them and other Soviet troops around the Pantheon to trust and rely on the Soviet ideology to boost them, even if he doesn't buy into it himself.
  • Aside from the obvious thing, Zhukov isn't a fan of Lucius Malfoy. First of all, Lucius is a wannabe evil aristocrat who tries to look competent and calm but became a complete wreck when he lost his wealth and standing after a stint in Azkaban. Zhukov almost wanted to laugh at Lucius getting caught with Death Eaters in the Ministry of Magic, a problem that Lucius couldn't throw his money or influence at.
  • Zhukov despises radicals, thinking that even for a hardcore offensive officer like him, taking things too far, too often will compromise a government immensely. While he went along with the move against Beria simply because he hated the man, the camp led by Khrushchev wasn't pleased that Beria released the bishops from jail to gain favour with the general public and the capitalist bloc.Zhukov wouldn't like his more extreme fellow countrymen like Nikita Dragovich and Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin, who were hardcore supporters of Stalin in their timelines. Dragovich he focuses his rage on specifically because he wanted to annihilate America with brainwashed sleeper agents despite his own country not wanting to go that far.
  • His experiences in World War II (particularly the concentration camps) have led him to oppose any and all Nazis in the Pantheon. If you're a Nazi, good or bad, Army or SS, civilian or military, you're Zhukov's enemy until you abandon their cause and even then he might shoot you dead just to make himself feel better. HYDRA, Shocker and Millennium are on his shit list, especially The Major for wanting to spark an eternal war with literal Nazi vampires just to thrill himself because he loves war.
    • A bit conflicted on the Zeon civil war. One one hand, Vice Admiral Dozle Zabi (a fleet commander for Char Aznable) is one of his best friends in the Pantheon due to their shared love of frontline duty and a tendency to choose violence over words, and Char's desire to force humanity into space while barbaric has some pure intentions behind it. On the other hand, Gihren is a complete megalomaniac with a mad 'survival of the fittest' ideology not unlike Adolf Hitler and Garma is a complete failure who only got a high position because his father was Sovereign of the country he fought for.
    Zhukov: Took all' me effort not to deck that Spoiled Brat on the floor. Bless him, because unlike Vasily, Garma at least tries not to look like a fuck-up. I still want to give that purple-mopped little scoundrel the beatdown he needs. Punishment builds character I always say.
    • Sympathizes with those who survived the Holocaust, especially those who came out of it completely broken. Erik Lehnsherr's experiences during the Holocaust formed his anti-human rhetoric certainly strikes a chord with Zhukov discovering the concentration camps on the way to Berlin. He may not enjoy being on the receiving end of Magneto's violent mutant revolution (badass or no badass, he's still a regular human), but he understands where Magneto is coming from.
  • Has a strong Yorkshire accent. Don't laugh at it just because it doesn't sound Russian. Zhukov doesn't like being made fun of. At all.
  • Also has a seat in the House of Accessories.
"When you want a job done right, call the Army."

  • Theme Song: Who Do You Think You Are Kidding, Mr. Hitler?
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A pointed arrow patterned with the Union Jack’s colours.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Bayonet Ya, Cool Old Guy, Rambling Old Man Monologue, Perilous Old Fool, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, Cloud Cuckoo Lander, Large Ham, Leeroy Jenkins, Old Soldier.
  • Domains: War, Combat, Defence, Soldiers, Stories.
  • Allies: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Roy Mustang, Captain Martin Walker, All Good-Aligned Deities in the House of Bladed Weapons, Herr Doktor Tenma, Captain America, The Basterds, Kirby, Cpl. Boyd Travers, Major Winters and Captain Spiers, Warspite, The Walmington-On-Sea Home Guard Platoon
  • Enemies: Wilhelm “Deathshead” Strasse, Johan Liebert, Red Skull, Waffen Infantry and Officers, Nazi Storm Elite
  • When offered the position in the Pantheon, Corporal Jones asked permission from his superior Captain Mainwaring. Mainwaring agreed, while looking quite flustered and unhappy. He was welcome by many members of the House of War and the House of Weapons for his long service as a soldier.
  • Whenever something dramatic or exciting happens in the Pantheon, he will run through the House of Weapons (or wherever he is at the time) shouting “DON’T PANIC! DON’T PANIC!”
  • Expresses slight envy towards Captain America for being as old as he is, but still being younger and stronger. Jones has since vowed to be as good a soldier as Rogers is. When told about this, Rogers met Jones, saluted him, and gave him an encouraging pat on the back.
  • Immediately goes after any Nazi-related deity, and for a time, had trouble trusting any German, Italian, and Japanese deities, but has mellowed out quite a bit. He favours Doktor Tenma for his kindness and sense of good.
  • Often one of the first to volunteer for just about anything, regardless of what it is, fuelling his Blood Knight tendencies. Among his attempted ventures were testing GLaDOS’ defences, cross the whole of the House of War’s battlefields without harm, and become the guard of the Disgraces, promising to do lethal things with his bayonet to those who caused trouble.
  • When off-duty, he works as a butcher in the House of Food and is visited a lot by Kirby, who he has to bribe with food to avoid losing all of his trade to the pink puffball.
  • Despite his daily habit of going into ramblings about his time in the Sudan, his stories are appreciated by some of the elder veterans of the House of War.
  • Has pretty close ties to the US Paratrooper deities in the Pantheon, due to the latter having been based in England for a time.

  • An old decript man from a age long ago. Gael was a Slave Knight, an Undead who was sent into battle only during the bleakest of situations purely to serve as infintely-respawning fodder against the enemy. After a few generations of constant fighting, the other Slave Knights all Hollowed from the hopelessness of their never-ending duty, but Gael did not. As the sole remaining Slave Knight who had not fallen to madness, Gael was drawn into the Painted world of Ariandel, a haven for the forlorn and wretched who have no home of their own. It was there that he found a new master to serve: his Lady, the Painter. When the Painter finally asked for the Dark Soul of Man, he didn't hesitate and sacrificed his life to consume the Dark Soul, in the hopes he can make the entity into a usable manifestation for the Painter. This act gave him a spot in the Pantheons, but not before many deities had to give restrictions on him and the Dark Soul.
  • Just as he ascended, majority of the deities immediately separated him from his transformed self since he got out of control. To Gael’s credit though, his herald, the Painter asked for the Dark Soul, which she will use for her painting. He doesn’t mind though, as he is able to wander around the Pantheons without harm. He also says the Pantheon is a much better place than the world he has gone through.
  • Has a habit of wondering around the House of Craft, possibly looking for a young, long-haired woman. He was dissappointed upon hearing that she was nowhere to be found, though he remarks that some deities are able to make worlds via painting them.
    • Thankfully, he met the Plain Doll, who he finds kinship in since she is as nice as the Painter, though she understands his guilt. The Doll knows that the reason why the Painter asked for the Dark Soul was to make a home for him, which she does not want to tell, due to being worried that she may grieve him after hearing the truth.
  • Upon his ascension, the SCP Foundation immediately set their eyes on Gael, seeing that he became a catalyst to the Dark Soul. Worried that he may be a massive threat, the O-5 Council placed him as one of the very few non SCP deities to prioritize on, especially on two things: preventing him from consuming the Dark Soul, and making sure he never encounters Manus.
    • The House of Light & Darkness has also made sure not to let him even one step of the house due to his potential, as they know darkness was the source of his corruption. The Light based ones are willing to help combat his situation should he ever get out of hand.
  • He sees alot with Ludwig, Artorias and Guts, seeing them as massive swordsmen who have gone through their harsh upbringings and eventual corruptions. Artorias however stays away from him, due to fear of the Abyss that corrupted him for a long time.
  • He is also glad upon hearing that the Ashen One has ascended, since he helped him clear Sister Friede from the clutches of the Painted World of Ariandel, something he has problems doing by himself. Unfortunately, upon hearing that even she ascended alongside, he is willing to fight her again to make sure she stays dead, even if it means dying a hundred times over.
    • Who would knew that the Chosen Undead and Bearer of the Curse would be similar with him in more ways than one. Undeads who would mean nothing due to being weak and fragile, only to rise up and be the source of the fate of the world they all live in.
  • Sora pities him to a good extent. He has seen so many corrupted Heartless, but nothing can compare than to a person who got corrupted willingly to what is essentially Humanity’s missing aspect, all while having a good purpose in his ultimatum goals. He sees a good heart in him, since he is willing to sacrifice alot for the Painter, but is worried by the fact that he become corrupted by eating the Dark Soul.
    • On the other hand, Master Xehanort is willing to use him to extract the Dark Soul for his intentions, since he can use said soul to create a new batch of Heartless. He has avoided him to make sure this never happens.
  • As a slave, he enjoys the company of the Vortiguants, seeing them as former slaves who gained independence, just like him. The Vortiguants also see uniqueness in him, especially for a human.
  • Out of all the deities who are interested in him, the Ancestor is the most notable. He sees Gael as a proof that humans are not different from abominations as a whole. On the other hand, he knows the Ancestor’s cruel intentions, which is why he tries to avoid him (emphasis on 'try'').
    The Ancestor: And here I show you all, that we are all one and the same. The undeniable truth of "humanity", at our fingertips.
    Gael: I know your kind, and I’ve seen enough of your kind. Now leave me be.
    The Ancestor: You cannot escape madness! I have seen countless people try, and you won’t be exempted from it.
    • Noob Saibot also sees interest in him, seeing to himself that he can be a much worthy wielder of the Dark Soul, which however means killing the old man. He will not allow that to happen anytime soon.
  • Gwyn went on a rampage hearing that another Dark Soul incarnate has ascended. He attempted to kill him in the first few days of his ascension, but the conflict has lessened. Still, Gwyn’s fury is high enough to send more guards to dispose of him. The Slave Knight has nothing but utter loss for the Lord of Cinder, hearing that had Gwyn not removed Humanity’s original Dark Soul using the Darksign, the entire world would have not engulfed itself into a massive cycle between Flame and Dark.
  • The Human Child is someone Gael is rather envious about, seeing that his Determination helped alot with his friends, as well as being an actual power in of itself. He wishes that such a power would exist in his world, then maybe the fates of most humans wouldn’t so bad overall.
    • On his first day of his ascension, Finn the Human immediately wanted to slay him, seeing him as a dangerous person for possessing the Dark Soul. However, upon realizing his ultimate goal, and his real attitude, he grew to pity him, seeing that even an old, decreipt man has a heart at the worst times. He is even willing to help him gain what the Painter needs even though Gael mentions that he must do it himself. Even moreso with the Dark Soul, which he has dedicated himself to be the sacrificial host for it so that the essence can be used for the Painting. While sad hearing that he cannot help him in anyway, he has made an oath with the hero of Ooo: should he go corrupted once more, he and the Ashen One shall slay him and deliver the Dark Soul to his herald, to which he accepted.
    Finn: Look, I know your goals but I know there has to be another way.
    Gael: I know, but it has to be this way.
    Finn: No, but there is always another way, a third option right?
    Gael: There is none. You cannot grasp it fully with just your bare hands. A sacrifice must be needed, for the Dark Soul has to be delivered.
    Finn: Then fine! I will find a way, not everyone has to go through such suffering.
  • What? Still here, hand it over, that thing, your Dark Soul. For my Lady’s Painting.
