Pantheon / Thieves

Go To

This place resembles a slum, with building placement that favors the existence of several dark alleys where the residents hang out. Secret hideouts are abundant, but well-hidden. Thieves use those primarily to store their loot away from other thieves, so most are booby-trapped (but when has that ever stopped anyone?). Other environments can also be found here, such as dark forests and underground caves, which are perfect for ambushing unsuspecting victims. Several thieves from other Houses can sometimes be spotted here like Rouge the Bat and Zidane Tribal.

A portion of this House borders a large body of water that connects to other aquatic Houses. It is also a route to the House of Piracy, which split off from the rest of the thieves.

  • When the story of Persona 5 first came around, certain members in the Court of the Gods, the Grand United Alliances, and other interested individuals hurried to bring its characters to the Pantheon, starting with the Phantom Thieves of Hearts (with the GUAL ascending the real Big Bad of their tale, Yaldabaoth).
  • That rush of ascensions was eventually noticed, their temples and titles were scrutinized, and most of the Court feel that this is a mistake that should be rectified, and so they delivered a verdict; all the Phantom Thieves of Hearts will be gathered together under Joker's title and his temple will be renovated to accomodate all of them.
    • Sae in particular was annoyed with this mass transfer, especially since this means Makoto no longer has a position in the House of School, but the younger Niijima has assured that she'll continue helping out over there, and will mentor/assist her eventual replacement.
  • Applies to the entire crew or some of them:
    • Having thought their powers gone for good after defeating Yaldabaoth and closing off access to the Metaverse, each of the Phantoms had been in for a surprise during their first days here when they had transformed once more, and that it was in the "real world".
      • In Futaba's case, it was during a supervillain attack, when she found herself in the Plutonian's flight path. He had reserved just enough strength to One-Hit Kill her, so the re-emergence of Prometheus to shield her was a surprise to both (with the Plutonian unable to followup before Superman closed in on him and knocked him away). The attack had left Futaba dazed after she and her Persona crashed into a wall from that punch, and when she came to her senses, she initially thought she had somehow been punched all the way into the Metaverse before it was made clear it wasn't.
      • Morgana had been told it straight from Igor when he realized that he wasn't an ordinary cat anymore upon ascension. But he had forgotten to tell his fellow Phantoms upon each of their ascensions.
      • In Yusuke's case, it was when he pulled a Diving Save on an innocent kid from a Team Plasma Grunt's Hydreigon's attack, after which he went to town on it with Kamu Susano-o's ice attacks (being without a katana at the time). It was only after the Plasma Grunt fled and the kid thanked Yusuke that he noticed what he was wearing.
      • In Makoto's case, it was when she witnessed Ms. Trunchbull being rougher than was necessary on a student during recess at the Elysium Academy. She had tried to intercede via the rules, but the teacher quickly resorted to violence against her, sending Makoto against the wall with the first backhand blow, but when Trunchbull turned to pummel her with a right hook, right as the student council president made to block it, a flash of light later and she was facing the Phantom Thief of Hearts, Queen. With the Academy’s different regulations, Makoto was authorized to retaliate with extreme prejudice.
      • Joker was notified of this "real world" Persona summoning privilege by Igor, which he only tested during his (technically second) duel with Yu. And he didn't forget to tell the others this time.
      • Ann's case was less… crisis-esque than the others, although she knew of the condition by now. It was when she crossed paths with Sakura Ogami, who initially mistook her for Junko Enoshima, and the Death Glare she delivered triggered enough of a fight-or-flight instinct in Ann to change her clothes into her Panther outfit, causing a brief scandal (and clearing up the misunderstanding) before she changed back.
      • In Ryuji's case, it was when he got between Miss Trunchbull and a kid she was tormenting and transformed right then. The memory of her battle against Makoto (and how badly she lost it) prompted her to flee, which didn't make sense to him at the time since he assumed she was the type to take him on regardless.
      • For Haru, she just tested it out in a fitting room.
      • As it turns out, in addition to being able to summon their Personas in the Pantheon proper, since their Phantom Thief outfits are part of that package, their clothes change into that as well when either of the following occur: 1) In the face of danger that they cannot handle without powers. 2) The user wills it to happen. Also, the Meta-Nav is back in their possession, and the Metaverse is revealed to be a dominion in the Pantheon.
    • They had been pretty sure that after their quest to defeat Yaldabaoth, Mementos would have disappeared. Turns out, that was just for Japan; the Pantheon has its own Mementos. While stunned at first, the crew eventually settled with the fact that there will be more work to be done, lots of corrupt Gods in the Pantheon that they will have to steal their hearts of.
      • And given that the team acquired their Personas by entering the Metaverse, there have been some people asking if they can serve as an alternate Persona-unlocking service for those who can't get theirs via the Midnight Channel. Joker's considering the offer, but given that it means targeting Palaces whose Shadows serve as catalysts for the 'client', and then no longer need to continue (but still can if they want to) after their 'client' has their Persona (unless they wish to), it can disrupt their heists. Of course, the catalyst can always be found in Mementos, but still. He's begun talking with Yu about getting this to work.
      • Unfortunately, it turns out Personas are far more limited for deities who don't come from the worlds under Philemon, Igor, and Nyarlathotep's watch, so Joker has decided to scrap that project. Still, the Metaverse remains useful in the Pantheon for changing hearts (even if only slightly), getting cash from Shadows, and fast travel (unique to the Pantheon's Mementos).
    • Given how dangerous the Pantheon can be and given that the Meta-Nav can be a very desired program to acquire, being the first among the Phantoms to make it here, Futaba guarded hers immensely, made it clear to the GUAG White Hats when she joined them that it's exclusive to the Phantoms only (once they ascend), and keeps close guard of her devices whenever she's working with them. She even ensures that her and her team's phones have updated security systems to protect from hackers, going so far as to anonymously send updates to Akechi (upon being made aware of his ascension) as well; as much as she despises him, she knows hackers might try getting the Meta-Nav from him, too.
      • Eventually, her fears came to life when she and Joker caught sight of a non-Phantom Thief in Mementos, and the entire crew was mobilized to track them down. They eventually found the culprit (whose identity apart from being a White Hat will be withheld for their protection) and they surprisingly came to a certain understanding; as the culprit pointed out, Futaba can't protect the Meta-Nav alone and could use the White Hats' resources to help strengthen her and the crew's P.A.D. security systems.
      • Eventually, she and the rest of the Phantoms went to visit Tron and discussed terms with him. Good thing too, as it turns out the culprit wasn't the only one who had the app, just the first the Phantoms caught. After a brief shakedown, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts were once again the sole owners of the Meta-Nav, with only a special few also possessing it after it was ensured that they won't use it for murder (or be accomplices/accessories to it).
    • Hold overwhelmingly negatives opinions in regards to Senator Steven Armstrong due to his political philosophy and ideals being quite similar to that of Masayoshi Shido's. Even then, they have to admit that Armstrong considers Shido to be causing what he sees as political corruption with a goal that's the polar opposite of his, and he actually holds respect for the Phantom Thieves by fighting against it having free will triumph. Basically, a lot of him seems more like Akechi than Shido, but is still just about as insane as them.
    • As a whole, in addition to Yaldabaoth, they oppose YHVH as He is an ultimate representation of corrupt authoritarian figures, and the two are pretty much counterparts to each other. Lucifer was amused by all this, and has given them an invitation to the Grand United Alliance of Chaos because they slew the Demiurge with Satanael, but none of them show interest, especially since his motives and atitude towards YHVH are reminiscent of Akechi's with Shido.
      • Lastly, Lucifer inviting someone as unhinged as Senator Armstrong into the GUAC was the final evidence Joker needed to confirm to he and his friends that Lucifer was bad news. Joker has been seen talking more with Cosmos with Igor's encouragement, making it likely he and the Phantoms will join the forces of good officially.
      • Their animosity also extends to Malthael, given his hatred of both humanity and free will.
    • Because of their experiences with infiltration and changing people's hearts, the Ministry of Atonement is considering recruiting them as members of the "Black Watch" unit. McCree and Genji were quick to welcome such sharp-minded rogues into their squad. That said, it also comes with the caveat of their missions needing to be a Pacifist Run given their code.
      • This Thou Shall Not Kill code (unless it's a Metaverse/TV World Shadow, and the exceptions have been expanding slowly) is also why they aren't fond of killer vigilantes like Frank Castle and Jason Todd. They know that sometimes it might be necessary, but they'd rather not consider it until they've absolutely run out of options.
      • Because of this, Ezio Auditore, despite him and the Assassins also fighting for free will, does well to respect their decision and not encroach on the subject and advises the rest of the Assassins to do the same. However, Desmond Miles has been trying to argue a case with Joker in regards to them (or at least him) joining a Heist. He knows two of their members have lost family because of this, but that (and fear of this happening again) certainly can't be the end-all reason for barring access. Joker's counter-response is that as Assassins, it would be difficult not to… answer their calling when their target's Shadow has been sufficiently subdued and ready for a change of heart, a practice that Desmond… can't say is wrong given he's an Assassin. That, and the Phantoms' reputation took a nosedive last time that happened. However, Desmond counters that statement with the Phantoms' stance against Shadows (which in fact, some of them take glee in, such as Haru). Besides, being the ones in charge, the Phantoms should be able to assert their authority in this matter, and as long as the Assassins can follow them, then they should be a great asset in Palace Heists.
      • That said, another reason Desmond has been appealing to them is because he has a target in mind for this; Shay Patrick Cormac. He hopes to influence the ex-assassin into being more negotiable with him and forge an alliance, and given that they've managed to change Sae Niijima's heart without stealing her Treasure, he knows this is possible.
    • Due to the fact that airsoft/model gun shops aren't exactly common enough to find in the Pantheon, the Phantoms realized they would eventually have to buy real weapons. While they've already resigned to that in regards to melee weapons, guns are a different matter. And so it becomes necessary (awkward it may be) that they purchase guns in the same ways every gun-buyer does (that have no issues with folks their age (or alignment) being customers). Preferably, so as not to be seen (by many), they order from Marcus Kincaid's vending machines and conduct back alley transactions with Drebin 893. Of course, being those who don't wish to kill (and because bullets are unnecessary in the Metaverse), they either safely dispose of any bullets that come with them (either throwing them away or do underhanded transfers with their allies), or trade it back (in Drebin's case).
    • As Persona-users, they met up with their "seniors" who came before them.
      • As fellow Sensor-type Persona-users, Futaba was quickly acquainted with Rise and Fuuka. She gets along with the latter more due to their shared computer know-how, even if Fuuka has more hardware knowledge than software, but all three have become friends either way.
      • Joker got along well with fellow Wild Card holders Yu Narukami, Minato Arisato, and Kotone Shiomi. While the three don't entirely agree with Joker's methods, they still respect his loyalty to his friends as well as his leadership capabilities. They're also sympathetic to what happened to him with them even wondering if they would've done the same in his shoes.
      • Naoto Shirogane was someone of particular interest to the Phantoms, as she's the original Detective Prince, it helps that she isn't doing it for fame and attention (and catharsis from catching crooks), but to uncover the truth.
      • Most of the Investigation Team and S.E.E.S. all got to meet some of the Phantoms in their own time, and while they did have their misgivings, they found the Phantoms trustworthy enough.
      • The Phantoms soon met the Dojimas, whom Yu had stayed with at Inaba, and were summarily surprised when it turns out they're Persona-users as well. Specifically, they've become such thanks to the TV World, and since they all come from the same universe, they're able to use it outside in the Pantheon proper just like every ascended Persona-user.
      • For the older Dojima, there was a little contention he had in regards to their activities. While it's true that it's not that different from what the Investigation Team was doing, there's the fact that what they do gets them involved with real criminals, whom they've also gotten in trouble with outside the supernatural dimension they usually go into. That said, the stakes in the final battle were far greater than Izanami's threat (and the fact that none of the other preceding Persona-users were able to help during it was worrying), and given all their misfortune, he won't say anything against them. And if Yu trusts them, then perhaps he can, too.
      • Because he's the pinnacle example of corrupt police officers, and having far less of an excuse for his villainy than their traitorous member, they despise Tohru Adachi. That said, given his actions at the P-1 Climax in not letting his punishment become invalid, they just settle with avoiding him and shooting glares, especially since Yu trusts him to some extent.
      • Given they have the trust of the Shadow Operatives/S.E.E.S. and the Investigation Team, Marie, Labrys, Rei, and Zen have come to trust the Phantoms too.
      • Despite their differing personalities, Sho Minazuki's backstory is way more similar to Akechi's than they're comfortable with. His transgressions and confrontational attitude are also off-putting. But since Yu and Labrys trust him to some extent, the Phantoms won't engage him needlessly, but they're considering checking him for a Palace.
      • The Persona-users of Sumaru City had a few initial issues given their modus operandi, but the Eternal Punishment party in particular (even the police officer Katsuya) understand the idea of opposing corrupt governments, given Tatsuzou's city-encompassing conspiracy. Also, the mental shutdowns the Phantoms have witnessed are all too familiar to the Innocent Sin party (perhaps) if they failed to keep Yukino's Shadow from killing herself.
    • Occasionally, the Phantoms dress up in themed outfits, like high school uniforms from Karukozaka, St. Hermelin, Seven Sisters, Gekkoukan, Yasogami, Yumizuki, and Ouran. There's also Shadow Operatives uniforms, Mikado Samurai uniforms, and people from Vincent Brooks' life, with Joker donning the garb Vincent himself is often in. For Morgana, he has costumes based on Trish, Aigis, Teddie, Burroughs (which she's amused with), Gouto-Douji (Raidou Kuzunoha's feline companion), and a Stray Sheep.
    • Because of her abuse of her authority as a teacher, and since that's a big parallel to their first target Suguru Kamoshida, all of the Phantoms—especially its founders and Makoto—despise Trunchbull and all others like her.
    • Are aware of Homura's distorted heart and desires ever since her betrayal of Madoka and stripping her of her powers to keep her safe. Unfortunately, given her powers over time, they cannot act against her since the moment she suspects anything, she'll be able to take them all down (over and over until they give up) easily, especially when the Calling Card phase occurs.
    • There's a mutual appreciation clouded by questions between the Phantoms and Batman. Both sides appreciate that the other works to stop dangerous criminals and change the world for the good from the shadows, as well as being vilified by law enforcement. However, the Dark Knight isn't too sure about the whole "stealing people's hearts" thing, as he thinks this can backfire in any number of ways, and isn't particularly fond of their leader using the code name Joker. Consequently, most of the thieves wonder if Bruce is too obsessed with his duty to make room for joy in his life.
    • Oppose deities who manipulate the mind for their own purposes, like ADVENT, who utilize psionics to induce fear, break the will, or mind control their enemies, and Oryx, who Takes people and transforms them into Eldritch Abominations. It doesn't help that the former is a Galactic Conquerer faction and the latter is an omnicidal Evil Overlord.
    • Soldier:76 and Kiritsugu Emiya are among other non-evil folks who possess Palaces in the Metaverse, their causes similar to that of Sae Niijima's. Heists on their Palaces have been planned, but are on the backburner for now.
    • When Peter Burke heard of the capers of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and learned about their background, he felt a sense of shame, sympathy and sadness for them. After all, the rotten authority figures they've had to go against are very much like some of the criminals his White Collar Division is meant to apprehend. As for working alongside him… well, he's worked with good-aligned criminals before, so there's some hope there.
      • Joker in turn respects Peter for everything he does and tells him not to blame himself. Ren has also admitted that Burke would have his hands full with the many flaws of the Japanese judicial system and the cultural pillars that it was built on. He has also led the Thieves in working with Burke in investigations, with heart changes being a last resort.
    • Being as they're also vigilantes that go after rotten higher-up figures capable of evading the law, the Phantoms made fast allies with Leverage Consulting & Associates. As someone who does the same thing legally and has experience working with criminals (even though one was a Boxed Crook before earning his freedom and another is his loyal best friend), Peter feels embarrased with it when they all collaborate.
      • The two caper crews had quite a bit to teach each other. Eliot and Makoto spar on occasion, Sophie helps Ann on her improv, Hardison and Futaba share hacking techniques, Nate helps Joker plan on how to do non-Metaverse heists, and Parker helps them how to discreetly steal (and pick locks, so that it's not entirely left up to Joker). In return, the Phantoms are debating whether or not the Leverage crew can be trustworthy Metaverse travelers.
      • It got "worse" for Peter when his partner Neal Caffrey ascended as well and joined up with them, playfully prodding his partner about his cooperation with criminals (and of his title) for the first few weeks, and has even become yet another mentor for the Phantoms, to the FBI agent's exasperation.
    • Android 17 once encountered them, announcing that he's got their backs against Yaldabaoth and his "nonsensical control grid philosophy" if they ever need it. Learning about what he and his sister 18 suffered through, they pledged the same if the "abusive monster" Dr. Gero ever encroaches them again, calling him the prime example of a corrupt adult. Between that and the twins' exploits in a multiversal tournament which grabbed a lot of attention, they hope to meet with 18 someday.
      • 17 and Joker later discussed the matter of the recently-ascended Android 21 and her Horror Hunger side, with Amamiya wondering if it's possible to deal with 21's evil personality through the Metaverse similarly to people's Shadows.
    • Have a mutual respect with Rushuna Tendou as she is able to change her opponents for the better with her ultimate battle strategy and its effectiveness preventing her from outright killing them, something Joker, Makoto and Morgana hope to emulate in the future. Rushuna herself is wary of their methods of entering one's soul to induce a change in them but she knows their intentions are in the right place.
    • The crew have been known to end up in other universes completely by accident while traversing the Metaverse. One routine trip into Mementos has landed them in the continent of Migleina; the same incident culminated in the Phantom Thieves working to stop an inhabitant of that world from breaking out into the rest of the multiverse. Though their business there has long concluded, Joker and Morgana regularly return to Migleina to fight alongside their allies there.
  • Exclusive to Joker:
    • Joker usually encourages his allies or friends to embrace change in case life tries to throw shit on them, in order to improve their lives. His motto is, shared by his fellow Phantom Thieves, "If you hold on, life won't change". If life still threw shit on them despite them holding on… well that thrower is bound to have a calling card soon…
    • Has become friends with Sly Cooper after a while, due to their similar M.O. and that the incident where Joker was captured and interrogated had a number of striking similarities to the end of Sly's third adventure.
    • He gets really annoyed with Morgana constantly telling him that he should go to bed early. Sometimes, if he agrees, he'll sleep all right. Otherwise, he either calls in a massage service, or "button mashes" on Morgana's head.
    • Because of similarities in regards to appearance, Joker has been compared to Harry Potter. Harry himself had to admit that was true in regards to his civilian form, but does have his misgivings in regards to the Phantom Thieves' methods. At the same time, he is incredibly empathetic given how Harry would endure similar false trials in his later years and given he even had to use the Imperius Curse, has eased up on Joker.
    • When a certain Clown Prince of Crime found out that Ren shares his codename, he thought it was an attempt to replace him as Batman's rival. The Joker, being himself, immediately wanted to eliminate Ren to have no more competition for his rival. Even when he learned that it wasn't, he already felt that killing him would be fun either way.
    • He's a very charming and attractive young man, but he is still a gentleman. He saw what would happen were he to break the hearts of young ladies; it ain't pretty, especially on Valentine's Day.
    • Unlike Yu, Joker's cooking experience thanks to his time with Sojiro is limited to coffee and curry, but he's damn good at making them.
    • He had to clear up multiple times that his name is NOT Akira Kurusu. Many were confused by this change but decided to roll with it, as this isn't the first time a sudden name change happened. Granted, this hasn't stopped him from being called Akira almost as much as Ren for a while until a compromise was reached with just referring to him as "Joker"… whenever any other Jokers in the Pantheon aren't around.
    • Decided to give rapping a try, and chose to parody the Pokérap.
    • Monkey D. Luffy is impressed with Joker’s loyalty to his nakama.
    • The God-Emperor of Mankind considers Joker to be a champion of humanity for proving that humans will fight to be free and live for more than the sustenance of a decrepit system.
    • He once met a man at the House of Weapons' gun range who dresses a lot like himself. He soon learned his name was Adam Taurus. However, once the two began talking, they learned that, fashion sense aside, they were nothing alike. He was especially appalled by Taurus's extremism and desire to rule over and subjugate the human race. It brought back memories of when he was offered the exact same thing. Adam has since entered the team's sights as a Palace Heist target.
      • As of recently, he has allied himself with one of Taurus's enemies by the name of Qrow Branwen. Initially, Branwen was a supporter of Akechi, believing him to be doing the right thing. Joker made sure to change all that by opening his eyes to Akechi’s true nature. This, in turn, allowed Qrow to switch sides, and the pair have shared mutual support of one another ever since.
      • The Phantom Thieves' alliance with Qrow extended to Team RWBY, not just due to his familial ties to Ruby and Yang, but due to their shared animosity towards Adam Taurus and their common philosophy in solving problems even if it meant going behind a few backs to do so.
    • Abigail is said to carry a similar voice base to him, which alarmed the thief since he wouldn't want to be confused for a hulking brute.
    • Is not allowed in Haunted House-style attractions due to his tendency to sneak up on his to-be-scarers thanks to his experiences in Palaces. Ryuji has had to stop him far too many times as a result.
    • In December 2018, Joker got one hell of an invitation to one hell of an event. No one saw it coming.
      • Speaking of said event, he later encountered Bowser, who was a bit depressed from yet another failed attempt at Princess Peach. With help from Joker, while this still didn't stop him from kidnapping Princess Peach, his encounter with him helped him connect even more to his son and the Koopalings.
      • He also encountered the Inkling Girl and mistook her for Futaba. However, once that Inkling clear that misunderstanding up, Joker became friends with both the male Inkling and the female Inkling.
      • Master Hand has noticed that Joker, when speaking English, sounds suspiciously similar to him. In fact, when they first encountered each other, they immediately pointed at each other in recognition.
      • Roy has also noticed that Joker sounds similar to him when speaking Japanese.
      • When the other Smash fighters noticed that he looked rather similar to Bayonetta, rumors about the two possibly being mother and son began to circulate. While Joker was somewhat uncomfortable about the rumors, given his history of being judged based on falsehoods, he let them slide since he knew they were just in good fun. They also gave him the excuse to talk to the Umbra Witch herself, and the two have managed to gain mutual respect for one another for their great deeds. Due to this respect, he later participated in a plan that she and many other allies were engaged in in order to free her father Balder from the evil of a god entity called Loptr who sought to destroy free will similar to Yaldabaoth. The result was the official revelation of Aesir, whom Loptr was one-half of. Loptr has hated his guts since then, especially after Joker called him "another despicable false god of control."
  • Exclusive to Ryuji:
    • Even though he may appear like a thug, he is actually a really nice guy, always helping out his friends whenever they are in need.
    • Due to their similar personalities, he became friends with Takumi Inui and tries to help him out every now and then.
    • Once visited Master Chef Komatsu's temple around the same time as a short girl with a green and yellow jacket, wanting a big helping of the best meat he's got. The girl was more specific, ordering the best steak. While talking as Komatsu prepared his meal, he discovered that he and the girl, Chie Satonaka, were not only both Persona users, they shared the Chariot social link. Ryuji, Chie, and Komatsu's partner Toriko all became fast friends over a six-star gourmet steak meal courtesy of the "88th" best chef in the world.
      • As they paid for the above meal, Chie pointed him in the direction of a similar friend of hers. Since then he's also gotten along well with Kanji Tatsumi.
      • That said, given their thuggish looks, Ryuji and Kanji almost came to blows because they both thought the other was planning to pick a fight, but the misunderstanding was quickly quelled, and they realized they were a lot more alike than just looks; they both love their moms, and we're both branded delinquents by their schools due to their actions. That said, Ryuji is a bit envious in that at least Kanji had been doing right by Inaba and his mom by beating up a very loud biker gang.
    • He's also had a bad run-in with Masato Kusaka, telling that even if people are jerks, they can still care for people that are close to them.
    • Despite being Book Dumb, Ryuji has been shown to possess a wealth of knowledge regarding physical training and sports from his days as a star athlete, giving his friends tips on everything from exercises to recovery to dieting.
    • Has occasionally been mistaken for Ghost Rider while in his thief attire. It doesn't help that his mask takes the form of a skull.
    • Has become allies with Death the kid after a while, but they do get on each other's necks on occasion with Kid's symmetry obsession.
    • HATES Light Yagami for killing people with no reason, even though they are mostly villains anyways. It also annoys him that they share the same voice in Japanese.
    • Back when he had his own temple, Ryuji wasn't good at keeping it clean. Now that everyone shares a place, this only goes so far as his bedroom, and Makoto is quick to make him clean up whenever she comes checking.
  • Exclusive to Morgana:
    • When it comes to who drives him when he's a vehicle, he entrusts that role only to Joker or Makoto; last time he tried the others (prior to Makoto joining), Ryuji's too reckless, Yusuke drives too slow (even with the Reaper on their tails), and Ann drives too fast. Additionally, Haru Drives Like Crazy (and would likely try to ram him into Shadows every single time), and Futaba apparently doesn't have racing game know-how as part of her skillset. That said, in the event none of the regulars are available, everyone's been getting driving lessons.
    • Ever since his initial arrival, Kibou Go was quick to consider having Morgana as their mascot due to his origins.
    • Batman, Lamington, Trevor Belmont and the other strategists in the GUAG have taken interest in Morgana's sharp intellect. Him being the primary monkey wrench in the plots of FOUR villains over the course of six months (three of them being undermined within the same month) did not go unnoticed.
    • Became fast friends with Luna, sharing stories of their exasperation with the idiots they've had to mentor. Luna regards him as a little brother.
    • Is an honorary member of the House of Angels, with many of the good angels seeing Morgana as the baby/pet of the family.
    • Despite some initial misunderstandings due to sharing a voice with the Incubators, the Puella Magi have grown to regard him as being like Kyubey if he were a million times more trustworthy. The fact that Morgana actively fights alongside those he mentors and his experiences with Palaces being similar to a Witch Labyrinth have earned him points with them. That, and the time he chopped up, wind buffeted and repeatedly ran over Kyubey while shapeshifted as "the cool car". Unfortunately, getting the most of Morgana's advice requires a passing understanding of Jungean Psychology.
      • Senses very strong distortions in the heart of Homura Akemi. Further investigations showed the distortions are of a horrifying combination of the distortions in Futuba and Sae's hearts. Although the two have no ill will towards each other given their shared hatred of the Incubators, Morgana knows a fight is inevitable.
    • Got taken home by Rena Ryuguu. Needless to say, it was a painful and embarrassing experience due to Rena's Super Strength when in Omochikari Mode.
    • As an embodiment of hope, it comes as no surprise that Morgana would become enemies of despair mongers such as Terumi, Bernkastel, The White, and Monokuma (as well as his mastermind Junko).
    • Sakaki was uneasy with Morgana at first due to being a black cat like the one that would always bite her hand. Morgana being so friendly and such a good playmate to Maya put her at ease.
    • Those who are selfless protectors of humanity (such as Alexstraza and Vulkan) have earned Morgana's admiration. They were very impressed with his willingness to risk being Ret Gone to save them from Yaldabaoth.
    • While he is horrified with Kratos' brutality, Morgana remains conflicted about him due to being a Hope Bringer. Kratos being a sincerely loving father also earned points with him.
    • Due to his reputation for telling Joker he should go to sleep, Morgana has been getting requests to have a reading of Go the Fuck to Sleep. After a while, he finally did.
    • Envies Teddie for actually being able to take on a human form, while Morgana has yet to achieve that. As such, he approaches the mascot sometimes to learn how he did it, but the several puns he makes reminds the cat of Yusuke's occasional tendencies for such things, and Teddie's behavior with the ladies also puts him off.
      • However, after rendering their adventure together, they actually became great friends, especially after Teddie began to understand how he feels in regards to Ann and respectfully stepped off, taking a Bros Before Hoes stance on the situation. The two do still get jealous of Koromaru, though.
  • Exclusive to Ann:
    • Was a tad miffed that despite being among the first of Joker's Phantom Thieves of Hearts, she was among the last to ascend. Ryuji shared the same sentiment, having ascended just a day after she did, but both put it behind them; what matters is that they're finally here.
    • People have a habit of pronouncing her name incorrectly, forgetting to pronounce her first name with heavy emphasis on the "A", like with Princess Anna. Her surname gets the same flak, with English-speakers alternating between putting the emphasis on the first and second syllables.
    • Amusingly, when shippers aren't pairing Ann with Joker (or Shiho or Makoto), they're setting her up with Ryuji. "Supporting" this is that they have "met thrice before" as well as some urban legends. Neither is willing to spill any details.
    • While her initial Persona is named Carmen, it's not actually representative of Carmen Sandiego, but the Impossible Thief likes her style regardless and they became allies. Stealing someone's distorted desires sounds like an interesting heist to pull, even though Carmen probably doesn't need need the Metaverse to do that. Hearing of the impossible things she could do, and knowing she just might think of stealing the Metaverse Navigation app from any of them eventually, Ann decided to share the app to Carmen so as not to inconvenience the group in the long run. She has not told her team about this exchange.
      • Regarding other cat burglars like her, she holds some respect for Catwoman (and her attraction towards Batman), but absolutely none for Black Cat (for her desire to get back at her former boyfriend Spider-Man and everyone he ever cared about).
    • Being someone who has had the "luxury" of being lusted over by a teacher, though Kamoshida was… physically worse than Jefferson, Ann sympathizes with Max Caulfield for what she's been through.
      • They've also both had the frightening experience of seeing a friend (Kate Marsh and Shiho Suzui) attempting suicide by jumping off a roof during school. One difference is that Ann had no chance to stop her friend while Max did. Another is that Shiho survives (though with broken legs) while Kate may or may not depending on Max's actions. A third is that while the school faculty ultimately doesn't do much about it, Shujin's is much more tactless about it while Blackwell's at least makes a show of effort.
      • And when Max decided to face herself in the TV World to face the issues that she had been forcibly torn away from during her Nightmare Sequence, she decided to come with her and help .
    • Through Ren, she got to meet up with the fairly-recently ascended Hecate, despite Mercury/Hermes trying to keep his wife away from her. Hecate for her part is amused with the Phantom Thieves' activities and promises to lend her assistance when needed. If she can get it past her husband, that is.
    • There's a villainess she idolized on TV for being sexy, taking what she wanted, possessing indomitable spirit, and being true to herself. She sees a lot of that character in Fujiko Mine (except the sincerity). That said, she doesn't share this admiration for actual villains.
    • As she aspires to be a model, she sometimes gets called in by Rarity to help show off her outfits. And through her connections in the Pantheon's fashion industry, she also got acquainted with Erika Kurumi (an aspiring designer) and Miki Aono (a composed model with high self-confidence/perfectionism) and became friends with them (and rival in Miki's case).
    • Had an interesting encounter with Rise, who mused that she could've looked just like Ann does before assuming her current look. They also do work involving cameras and appearances, though Ann admits that Rise's idol work is a lot harder. Oh, and they both wear their hair in twintails, too, as Souji Mitsuka would say.
    • Is looking forward to finding a way to steal Junko Enkoshima's heart for her desire to sink the entire world into despair. And for looking very similar to her that most of Junko's enemies briefly confused the two. Unfortunately, since her desires aren't distorted (despite being evil), this would be difficult.
    • Judge Frollo sees the idea of a Heroic Seductress as oxymoronic and would like nothing better than to be rid of her, and all the Phantom Thieves for obvious reasons (i.e. theft).
    • Whenever Miyuki-chan somehow ends up in the Metaverse from falling through rabbit holes, she reels back upon seeing Ann in her Metaverse outfit for some reason.
    • Through hanging with Ryuji, she got to know and connect with Kanji Tatsumi, who knows what it's like to be judged by looks alone and suffer a bad reputation for it.
      • Thanks to a certain adventure, she's come to enjoy Chie's company as much as Ryuji does.
      • Another Persona-user she had the privilege of meeting was Lisa Silverman, who also shares with her the distinction of being of Caucasian descent (though is completely foreign [with Japanophile parents] compared to Ann still being part-Japanese even if her appearance doesn't reflect that) as well as the "racist" biases that come with it.
    • Despite her fashion sense, she's terrible in drawing and coloring, and she's stated that out when her Fashion Designer friends asked for some ideas. She remembered Yusuke's criticism of it that still truly stung.
  • Exclusive to Yusuke:
    • Very talented in art, however, he's often starving. This is due to his mentor and adoptive father Madarame stealing all the credit and profit from his work; however, even after defeating Shadow Madarame he's still excited about food and has financial issues. That, and he often forgets to eat because he's busy with his work. He's rather polite to women, though still makes requests to study their body for his art. It's not done out of any skeevy reason, probably. Kyle Rayner gets along with him as a freelance artist and an incident of It's Not Porn, It's Art backfiring for him.
    • Hol Horse was curious given their Arcana ties to the Emperor. For whatever reason, he tried to give advice on picking up and attracting women, given Yusuke's potential Covert Pervert nature. It didn't go anywhere, and he suspects he might swing the other way.
    • At times, it rains when he's around and usually during outdoor events, and sometimes it's not even the fault of any rain-making or weather-changing entities. Given his low Luck stat, it makes sense, and moreso given who his Ultimate Persona is.
    • Yusuke is very uncomfortable in the presence of Yuuki Terumi, the other version of Susano-o, and Terumi in turn also does not like him because his voice in Japanese really reminds him of Ragna the Bloodedge and Yusuke summoning Susano-o to him looks like giving images of Terumi becoming the whipping boy of Ragna.
    • Because of his experience with Madarame, he hates exploitative mentors and bosses. Seeing Svengali in the Pantheon infuriated him; however, his hatred towards him was nothing compared to Ghetsis Harmonia. The man had raised and manipulated the orphan N solely to use and abuse as a false savior so he can take over the world, and planned to off N afterwards. Incredibly sympathetic to N's situation, the two teamed up to steal Ghetsis' heart. Or they would've were it not for one huge issue; at the time, the ascended Phantoms comprised of only himself, Morgana, and Futaba, and the cat wasn't willing to go after such a tough target with only them against someone who's more corrupt than even Masayoshi Shido, and would be much more difficult to steal his heart, especially since their leader Joker had yet to ascend. Yusuke was forced to put this heist on hold until a later time but promises N that he'll notify him as soon as they have time.
      • Now that the entire crew was here, it's only a matter of time before they start again. And they did so when N arrived at Joker's temple to request for it again. They hadn't done so for a while since the status quo would revert him after the Heist; at least they can still influence him in the present, and it so happens that he was currently planning something big for the GUAE, so a change of heart can mess that up and make it fail. N volunteered to come with them both to earn fighting experience and to find out how and why''' he became the monster he is today.
      • During that Heist, upon an early run-in with Shadow Harmonia, N confronted him and awakened a Metaverse Persona as he finally accepted that there's no redeeming his "father", no matter how much he hopes otherwise. When the time came for the Calling Card, the Phantoms weren't prepared enough for the consequences of doing so given that the entire Pantheon knows who they are. The Phantoms escaped Team Plasma's attacks on their temples as they proceeded with finishing the Heist, but it was only after being called over to Leblanc that Sojiro told them that Ghetsis also sent his forces after him, Chihaya, Hifumi, and Sae, and that it was only thanks to the friends they made that they managed to survive. The Phantoms have to be more careful next time, perhaps even find a way to do Heists without a Calling Card.
    • The issues with Madarame led him to be sympathetic towards Terra, due to their shared Rage Against the Mentor issues. He also feels bad for the Nostalgia Critic, a fellow member of Craft who had Abusive Parents and a love-hate complex with said parents. Trying to help him see that both his parents are terrible rather than just his dad.
    • He sympathizes with Symmetra being exploited by Vishkar due to being exploited the same way Madarame did to him, understanding that since they raised her it was hard for her to hate them. He doesn't like how Lucio berates her conflicting opinion, however, is fine working with him to steal the heart of the Vishkar CEO. He and Symmetra obsess over something to a major degree (arts and order respectively), and finds the cities she's built to be exquisite. Not to mention, somehow Symmetra was amused with his weird 'artistic' poses that he likes to strike to 'get in the feel' before he paints.
      • The reason why he doesn't "swim" well with Lucio turns out to be rather pragmatic and based on experience as well. He could sense that Lucio and the anti-Vishkar movement seems based on "by popular demand", which was like the case of Okumura Fast Food Chain, which ended up blowing right in their faces and putting the Phantom Thieves on the ropes due to the manipulation of mass opinion by Masayoshi Shido. He wants to make sure that the cause they take is truly just, not just because a popular guy and the mass demand it and they just happen to align with "popular morality", though he senses that it's going to be true anyway, but it's best to take a more careful approach.
      • That said, he still enjoys exchanging pun jokes with Lucio… but people advise that he doesn't do that in front of Futaba, who'll tell both of them to go to hell for that.
    • He is a major fan of Leonardo da Vinci and was overcome with fanboyism when he learned the man himself was in the Trope Pantheon. Immediately met him, and to his delight da Vinci liked him back. He also identifies a lot with Vincent van Gogh due to being the classic example of a Starving Artist, and hopes to see him in the pantheon in future.
    • Pities Squidward for never succeeding as an artist, to the point of having to eat his paintings when he was broke. He doesn't like the scumbag boss that he works with. He feels for Nero due to how she was exploited by her abusive mother.
    • Fanboyed upon learning he shares da Vinci's voice in one universe, and in Japanese he sounds like Joseph Joestar, Kyon and Ragna the Bloodedge, the latter being useful to combating Terumi. In English he sounds Kiritsugu Emiya, but regardless of the language he always sounds like Chrom for some reason.
    • Super Sentai gods, particularly the Gorangers, gave him some weird looks when he horribly misarranged the Featherman action figure in Futaba's room. They know he means well, but that was just... a pain to look at.
    • Some Gods are understandably creeped out when he considered Mara to be an artistic piece to be painted at. You know... Mara.
    • Yusuke is actually impressed with Roronoa Zoro's swordsmanship and surprised at the fact that he can grip his third sword with his teeth.
  • Exclusive to Makoto:
    • Frequently visits the house of Justice and explores the House of Crime, as she wants to work towards becoming a police officer, and to help with her Phantom Thief skills.
    • Has also been introduced to other Makotos through Kenzaki (specifically Nanaya and Naegi). Naegi also reminds her of Morgana, since they both have a lot of hope in them.
    • As the previous inheritor of Student Council President, Miu from the Kamen Rider Club has gotten along well with Makoto.
    • Connected with Yukiko and especially Fuuka, since both of them are the smartest of their respective teams, and Fuuka provided enemy support a lot like she did with her team.
    • She also bonded with Chie Satonaka, as both of them dream of becoming police officers. Chie might even be "the kung-fu police cadet" that she heard about on the news, and she quickly introduced her to Akihiko, who's had also eventually joined the police force, and even fights with his fists just like she does.
    • That braid over her hair? That's actually a hairband, designed to look like a braid, that also that happens to be the exact same color as her hair. It is hard to tell the difference, just like with Jotaro Kujo and his "hat".
    • As a result of having some bad memories about the mafia, specifically Junya Kaneshiro, she is very uneased with Fat Tony, who is also a mafia boss.
      • Despite that, she likes Yakuza flicks.
    • Thanks to interactions with Misaki Ayuzawa, she has learned to be a bit more hands-on with being the student council president so that she won't just be an errand girl for the principal anymore, like she was in Shujin.
    • She is surprised by how many people ship her with her leader and friend, Joker, due to the admiration of her skills among other reasons. She is quite flustered at all this.
    • She's getting rather tired of having to explain to nearby police officers (not in the know yet) that she and her friends are just shopping for weapons because they're avid cosplayers. Any missteps and the whole group might be dragged off to see Ryotaro Dojima and forced to write tons of "I will not wave around with real weapons at streets" or "I will not make friends with gangsters" on a chalkboard.
      • Of course, this practice eventually stopped as he was eventually notified and given to understand what the Phantoms do. Besides, they make sure to empty them of bullets, as they aren't needed in the Metaverse to work anyway.
  • Exclusive to Futaba:
    • A teen genius, she serves as the navigator and hacker of the Phantom Thieves. Like Alia, whom she was once a follower of, she serves as Mission Control. Usually, can be found communicating remotely in her room on the internet, or playing video games. She enjoys playing with Chiaki Nanami in the House of Gaming. A lot of people were suggesting she should play Splatoon, mainly because the female Inkling looks like her and they kept commenting the squid was no longer kid now.
    • Among the few activities she, Rise, and Fuuka undertake together, Futaba was introduced to yet another Sensor-type Persona-user; Tomoyo Daidouji after her trip to the TV World, as while her Persona does have offensive capabilities, it's more "geared" to mapping and intel (but not communication, not even to the level of Mitsuru's Artemisia).
    • Very similar to Usalia. The two are curry freaks, with a signature curry dish being a Tragic Keep Sake of a dead parent. The death of their parent/s gave them a self-loathing complex that they eventually recovered from, they were in a pursuit of vengeance against her parents' killers, and share a status as Everyone's Baby Sister. To the surprise of nobody, they became great friends upon meeting each other.
    • She is really fond of cats, and makes semi-regular trips to the Felines sub-house. Ended up meeting Miss Sakaki there and bonded over their awkwardness when it comes to trying to be social, and Simba over dealing with and recovering from guilt over their parents' death.
    • While she's overcome her issues with her mother, she still hates evil moms like Lady Tremaine and Dr. Sofia Lamb. Scar repulses her to due making Simba think he accidentally killed his father when in reality it was Scar. Though recovering from a lot of her guilt complex, she still knows what it's like to have it and as such sympathizes with Raiden. Is also sympathetic towards Butters due to his own sense of guilt around his parents.
    • Said to sound like Tatsumaki and Yuuki Konno. She pities the latter due to her sickness, and being forced to be active in virtual reality. When speaking English she sounds like Gaea in her Smite incarnation and Ren Gyokuen, which she's a lot less happy with.
    • Despite sounding like Madoka Kaname, she looks a lot like Homura Akemi prior to her Cynicism Catalyst besides a different hair color. Her inner demons of self-loathing, suicidal tendencies, and PTSD is more like the current Homura however.
    • Joseph Joestar noticed they shared a few similarities. Both were associated with the arcana of the Hermit, both played more of a support role and both are geeks. The two became friends upon getting to know each other and like to play video games together.
    • Distrusts any Men in Black, given that some had basically straight up lied to her that her mother committed suicide and blamed her for it. Her encounter with Agents K and J was hostile from her side before J gave her a chance to explain.
      • After hearing her story, J assures that the MIB he's in would never do such a thing…but K didn't immediately support the statement, leading J to be suspicious and to confront him. The elder agent finally stated that what Futaba's will-readers did was unnecessarily cruel and that he was sorry she had to go through so much pain. By the end of the day, they parted on awkward terms, with Futaba thinking that maybe they would have done the same thing she and the rest of the Theives did by cracking down on the whole conspiracy the moment they saw something suspicious.
    • Her blood type is AB Negative, which is incredibly rare in Japan. It doesn't help either that this also applies to Akechi.
  • Exclusive to Haru:
    • Despite her initial Persona being Milady, who was a manipulative sociopath, Haru's really nice and portrayed her as an honorable trickster. She's very compassionate as well, even pitying Goro Akechi despite him killing her father. She seems a bit disappointed that no-one from The Three Musketeers has ascended yet, though she did hear of their expies the Swords of Justice.
    • Haru turns out shares a lot of common background with Mitsuru, though their personalities are quite different as well as their respective experiences in business and "commoner" social saviness.
    • Weirdly enough, she seems to gravitate towards Darth Vader, mainly due to her dad's Shadow bearing design similarities from him, being an Archnemesis Dad who was once a decent man, and wanting their kid to follow their path, though still has a sympathetic side. They also have a tragic death. Shadow Kunikazu even has a similar outfit, which given his geekiness probably based on Darth Vader's iconic suit.
    • She's fond of gardening, and is always welcome in the sub-house of Plants. Her dream is to open a cafe specializing in serving healthy organic food and coffee. This was what her grandfather originally did before her father warped it into a fast food chain, and she's trying to establish it in the House of Food. As the Goddess of Cosplay Cafes, Chiyoko Shiraishi is a massive help.
      • Speaking of gardening, some find it impressive or unbelievable that she can grow and harvest vegetables (such as tomatoes) from seedlings (normally a three-to-four-month endeavor in the best of conditions) inside of a week. On a Tokyo rooftop. In December. Some folks therefore wonder if she's hiding any nature powers.
    • As a company heiress with an abusive father, Weiss Schnee is sympathetic towards Haru and the Phantom Thief returns her sympathies in kind, saddened that Jacques Schnee is completely contemptible rather than having even some decent attributes like her own dad. She feels really bad for N as well due to how his adoptive father Ghetsis used and abused him worse than her father ever did. She hopes to change their hearts, and heard from Mitsuru that Weiss is fully on board with this idea.
    • As a compassionate rich girl, she's friendly with Charlotte LaBouff, along with Amy Wong, particularly the latter as they had to deal with pushy parents trying to set them up. She respects Charlie Bucket for becoming rich thanks to his kind heart. On the other side, she has nothing but bad things to say to Princess Morbucks and the Reagan siblings, whose spoiled personalities is everything she is not. Her contempt for Neil is even greater due to him reminding her of her jackass ex-fiancee.
    • Is keeping her eye on Mr. Krabs, due to being yet another reminder of her father; greedy, and owner of a popular restaurant chain specializing in burgers. Though like her father, Krabs isn't a complete dick, and can fluctuate between Jerk with a Heart of Gold and The Sociopath depending on the episode. At least she seems to enjoy the Krabby Patties served. She likes Spongebob for being a passionate, honest worker and feels he should be the one running the Krusty Krab in future. She also feels pity towards Squidward due to how much he hates his job, just like her father's employees have suffered due to his corrupt and greedy practices.
      • Though there is some warmness for Mr. Krabs, the same cannot be said of Mr. Burns and Looten Plunder. Less so of Mr. Burns due to his Freudian Excuse of being molded into what he was by his rich, cruel grandfather. She would try to change his heart, but the wicked centenarian is so frail that hatred is all that's keeping him alive. Given that her own father died after his heart was changed (even though that was Akechi's fault and not hers), she doesn't want that same fate to befall Mr. Burns, though she hopes he can find some way to be better.
    • As with the other Phantom Thieves, she has Iroque and the Indigo Light as a big help. Her kind personality gravitates more to Ma-Ti helping change people's hearts due to having the power of heart, and the Planeteers generally deal with corrupt corporate executives just like the Phantom Thieves do.
    • By all accounts she's a Nice Girl, but she also has a bit of a Cute and Psycho side. She likes combat as a form of stress relief, uses an axe to fight (she has a liking for the whip, too, but Ann isn't lending hers), and likes to see Shadows begging for their lives. A lot of people suspect she's a covert sadist. Her preference for grenade launchers doesn't help with that image, either.
      • She's not sure what to think about the fact that this has gained her the attention of the Pantheon's ascended Saiyans.
    • Many people think she has a huge forehead. This annoys her, and Dib Membrane can understand where she's coming from. Of course, not many people have the balls to say it directly to her face because, well...
    • Has some bad luck in regards to machines. She doesn't know how to use a smartphone (only enough for calls and texts), she breaks new computers by touching them, and had taken her PC in for repair at least 10 times.
    • She gets along well with the Vilager and Isabelle. Not just because they see a bit of themselves in each other, but also because she uses an axe like Villager, while being as nice, polite and kind as Isabelle. Of course, there’s also the fact that in Smash Ultimate, her spirit was represented by a female villager and that they both have unfortunate reputations as Memetic Psychopaths.

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbols: Her Hood and Kenji Okuda's Greybox
  • Theme Song: Her theme From Mass Effect 2
  • Alignment: True Neutral with Good leanings, Chaotic Good under Shepard
  • Portfolio: Anti-Heroine, The Caper, Covert Pervert, Dark Is Not Evil, Deadpan Snarker, Face Framed in Shadow, Friend to All Children, Genki Girl, Highly Visible Ninja, Not in This for Your Revolution, Perky Goth, Phantom Thief, Recruiting the Criminal, The Sneaky Gal/Stealth Expert, Spy Catsuit
  • Domains: Thieves, Hackers, Lost Loves
  • High Priestess: Max Guevara
  • Allies:
  • Rival: Domino
  • Enemies: The Illusive Man, Harbinger, Inspector Javert
  • Opposed by: The House of Royalty and The House of Justice
  • Banned from: The House of Treasures and The House of Commerce.
  • Kasumi Goto did not ascend to the Pantheon by normal means. She was already present when the Normandy was placed in the House of Treasures, hiding inside the ship, making plans to rob the House of Treasures blind (and to steal the Normandy as a bonus). However, the Main House was already privy to her presence, as was Commander Shepard, who was tasked with notifying Kasumi of her ascension. The House of Treasures, however, is considered off-limits, as is the House of Commerce.
  • She is known as "the best thief in the galaxy," a title that the deified members of the Normandy can attest to. Kasumi sees that stealing and indulging in her vices are in her own words, 'fun.'
  • The House of Justice (especially Inspector Javert) has her on their Most Wanted Top Ten, due to her exploits back when she was mortal, though she still counts Garrus Vakarian as an ally due to their mutual friendship with Shepard. The House of Royalty also doesn't think highly of her due to Kasumi attempting to steal their wealth. So much so that the House of Royalty has appealed to Snow White to ask for her husband's aid in keeping Kasumi away.
  • For the record, she is not to be confused with the Goddess of Kunoichi who share the same name as her.
  • Unlike Carmen Sandiego, Kasumi prefers to keep a low profile.
    Kasumi: I'm the best thief in the business, not the most famous. Need to watch my step to keep it that way
  • Her temple is a recreation of Anderson's apartment, in which Shepard had hosted a party for the crew of the Normandy in the past. Her taste for decorations can be left for debate, as some of it were from past heists.
  • She's also something of a Covert Pervert, as she was seen rifling through Shepard's underwear drawer at his/her party. Jiraiya has been seen in her presence, asking to borrow her cloaking device to use for his 'research.' Kasumi refused.
  • At odds with Naruto Uzumaki over which is the better-tasting ramen. Naruto claims that Ichiraku makes the best ramen, while Kasumi says that her grandmother made the best ramen. She does, however, express regret over not stealing Grandma's ramen recipe when she had the chance.
  • Kasumi has been recruited into the GUAG. Normally, she wouldn't have accepted the offer, but she only agreed due to her unusual friendship with Commander Shepard.
  • Quan Chi had tried to retain her services in an attempt to once again steal Shinnok's amulet. Kasumi refused. So he had Kano steal it instead.
  • Kasumi is wise enough to steer clear of Smaug. She may be the best thief in the galaxy, but even she knows her limits. That, and the Normandy's medical bay can't fix third and fourth-degree burns.
  • Kasumi was bummed out upon finding that Jacob Taylor hasn't ascended to the Pantheon. Shepard knows of Kasumi's crush on Jacob, but whether or not his/her subordinate is into "Japanese girls with a penchant for kleptomania" is unclear.
  • Kasumi finds Gambit 'interesting.' Both are master thieves, and considered to be the best in their field, and there is a degree of mutual respect for the other. Of course, this would eventually lead to the two to try and outdo the other.
  • Snuck into Iron Man's temple and stole his Mark V Suit, just to prove that she was the best. While Tony was annoyed, he was impressed, and offered her a job with the Avengers. Kasumi refused, stating that she was aligned with Commander Shepard. She did, however, returned Stark's Mark V suit, but only when Shepard asked her to.
  • Struck up a friendship with Aang and Katara after discovering they were her ancestors in a different universe. Afterwards, Aang has begun trying to teach her airbending to get another Airbender in the Pantheon (besides Zaheer). Kasumi, in turn, has been trying to teach Aang stealth, and sometimes spies on their dates, since she thinks they're cute together.

    Seth Briars 
Seth Briars, God of Grave Robbing (Seth of the Dead)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/28b76453bb26e7550b73b88eac62294f.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Shovel
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Depraved Bisexual, Fond of the Dead, The Pig-Pen, Reverse Mole
  • Domains: Treasure Hunting, Thieves, Insanity, Dead People
  • Allies: John Marston, Nigel West Dickens, Gollum/Smeagol
  • Rivals: Other Treasure Hunters, Mr. Krabs
  • Enemies: Fred C. Dobbs
  • Odd Friendship: The House of Undead
  • Dislikes: Women
  • The tale of Seth Briars is one of how ambition can ruin a person in both mind and body. In the past he used to be a respectable businessman with a wife and kids of his own until he learned of the existence of a Treasure that would make him reach. He was obsessed with finding it and he slowly lost his mind while searching for it, to the point that he willingly abandoned his family and business to find it. His descent into madness was so drastic that he was reduced to robbing graves for clues to the whereabouts of the fabled treasure. That's when he run into John Marston, who seeked his aid in hopes of exacting revenge on an old friend of his but he was forced into helping Seth find his treasure before he would even consider helping him. Eventually John and Seth managed to find the desired treasure Seth has been looking for so long and it turned out to be just a glass eye.
  • He was first found digging graves in Halloween Town and the residents weren't too happy of what he was doing. Eventually he was kicked out but saw that both John Marston and Nigel West Dickens where present and managed to convince them to talk to the Court of Gods so he could stay. Given his tendency to frequent graveyards, he was eventually elected to be the Deity of Grave Robbers.
  • He is obsessed with treasures and that's more or less the reason of why he is insane. He has many times tried to enter the Treasure Vault and failed because the security is too tight. There is also the fact that now he faces a lot of competition by more competent treasure hunters who don't even consider him as a worthwhile rival.
  • Though his title may say otherwise, there aren't any graveyards in the pantheon given how nobody really stays dead, so he hardly has anything meaningful to do and the Court denied his petition to have a gravesite in his temple. The best he can do ever since he got kicked out of Halloween Town is visit the House of Undead.
    • He also heard of valuable goodies being hidden in The Ancestor's old estate and so he directly headed towards it in hopes of finding something. The only thing he encountered was other adventurers and many aggresive monsters, so Seth just left when he couldn't really handle the situation.
  • His decrepit appearance has been a blessing and a curse. He tends to be confused for a zombie and so those who come from a Zombie Apocalypse tend to shoot him in response but that also has the benefit of the undead thinking of him as one of their own and not attacking him. That's why he likes to wander to the Undead house and play cards with the resident deities.
  • A bit of an anti-social if you couldn't tell, he heavily dislikes people and would rather not deal with them- He has shown more affection towards dead people though it has been mostly platonic thankfully, he may look the part but he is not depraved enough to engage on necrophilia. The pantheon doesn't really have dead people so the best interactions Seth has gotten have been with the more nicer undead deities, who just feel sorry for him and his frail state of mind.
    • He also seems to dislike women, though oddly enough not for mysogenistic reasons. He seems to have been heavily traumatized by his mother's death and so his disdain for women comes from the fact that he hates how they are able to die. And it's not that he never had luck with women anyway, he used to be married before the whole treasure hunting got into his head.
  • He rarely partners with anyone ever since he was betrayed by his partner Moses and the only ones that he really trusts are Marston and Nigel West Dickens. He especially hates Fred C. Dobbs whose greed made him betray his partners not unlike what Moses did to him.
  • He suffers from some Split Personality and that's why he gets along somewhat with Smeagol/Gollum. Their background are similar as well, being people who obsessed over something that eventually deteriorated them into insanity and seclusion. While Seth never actually found his treasure, Smeagol kept the one ring with him until Bilbo Baggins took it from him.
  • Seth has unknowingly stole a mask that beheld a curse that would raise the undead and the whereabouts of the mask remain unknown to this day. Many fear that the plague from that universe Seth belongs to could return but rest assured the Pantheon authorities have confirmed that he has no mask under his possession.
  • While the tale concerning Seth's treasure was All for Nothing, he indeed had a happy ending anyway. He later found a sack of jewels and other goods in an unknown location in 1914 and returned to his family to reopen his business. Whether or not he regained his sanity is unknown but at least he found what he wanted all that time.

Demigods

    Highwayman 
Ancestor: "Elusive, evasive, persistent... Righteous traits for a rogue."

The Highwayman, The Divine Road Robbers (Dismas)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mgtqiyq.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His gun and dirk, "Bloodied Neckerchief" and a "Shameful Locket"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: The Gunslinger with Pistol and Dirk in hand, The Atoner for murdering a woman and child, former bandit, Scarf Of Asskicking
  • Domains: Highwayman, Rogue
  • Superior: The Ancestor
  • Allies: Flaggelant, The Hunter
  • Enemies: The Crimson Court, The Hag, The Sleeper, Pennywise, Freddy Krueger, Basco to Jolokia, Handsome Jack, Black Hand, the Batter, Dr. Hax
  • Pities: Kyouko Sakura
  • Once a bandit that robs from wagon on the old road until a reflex on one pillage killed a woman and child, he went a quest for redemption in the Darkest Dungeon.
    • He is, once again, hired by the Ancestor in taking jobs from the dangers such as the Crimson Court and the Hag.
  • He care little about Robin Hood's famed accomplishments, despite both of them being known for robbing people in the old road (even if Robin Hood is too old to exist before the Highwayman fad). That said, he agrees that he has stopped his banditry ways years ago.
  • He meets the Hunter in an expedition once. Given that they tend to favor a similar choices in weaponry and are pretty used to fighting off monsters and walking away with adverse effects on the mind, they'd make a good ally.
  • It is believed that he is carrying around Dismas's severed head around the Pantheon, much to the discomfort of the other gods.
  • Despite being a ruthless killer, he would never harm a woman or child as it was his accidental murder that sent him on a quest for redemption. Even worse is that it is believed that said woman and child were his own wife and child.
    • He detests Pennywise and Freddy Krueger for hunting children. Even though they are more powerful than he could muster but he has faced monsters and demons, so it wouldn't stop him from trying to kill them.
    • Regardless of whether or not he really did kill his family by accident, he is shown to be very intolerant of family murdering. He found Black Hand to be horrible for murdering his entire family as a ritual for his initiation to the Black Lantern, found him to be no different than the cultists that worships the monsters in the Darkest Dungeon.
    • His situation with the Batter became complicated with his method of killing. The Batter wishes to purify the world but he was willing to do it to everyone especially the Queen (his wife) and Hugo (his child). The Highwayman alway has his guns ready whenever the Batter is close.
    • Despite his harsh personality, he's shown sympathy to Kyoko Sakura as her family was murdered by her father because of his madness over Sakura's wish of him getting more attention in church. While not much of a church-goer and have committed more sin than one can imagine, he'd pray whatever god there is that she get better.
    • He heard that both Kratos and Hercules killed their family as the result of trickery by the gods. He knows better not to do something about it because they would easily overpower him and also do not blame them as they never would have killed them had the gods not screwed with their lives, something that he could relate to.
  • Handsome Jack found him to be yet another worthless bandit, which offends him as he stopped being a bandit for a long time. Not to mention, Jack's pettiness earned him scorn by the former bandit.
  • He is not seen in the bar gambling as his reputation for cheating is widely known throughout the Pantheon. He has always been on a low ground due to being relentlessly pursued by Dr. Hax.
  • He has a habit of making jokes in the face of danger while camping since there are much worse ways to go. Some do not appreciate this humor and make things worse.

    Murkrow 
The Murkrow Flock, Deified Corvid Thieves (Darkness Pokémon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/198_murkrow.png
  • Demideities (majority), Lesser God (Alpha), Intermediate Deities (as a flock)
  • Symbol: A nest filled with stolen trinkets and items.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Gender: 1 Alpha Male, 2 Males, 3 Females
  • Ability: Prankster (Alpha), Insomnia (One Male/Female), Super Luck (One Male/Two Females)
  • Moves: Foul Play, Thief, Tailwind, Wing Attack (Alpha only); Thief, Taunt, Wing Attack, Torment (rest)
  • Portfolio: Creepy Crows, Thieving Magpie, Feathered Fiend (to those they steal from), Enjoy Nighttime, Nice Witch Hat-shaped Feathers, Combat Pragmatist
  • Domains: Birds, Darkness, Thievery.
  • Guardian: Honchkrow
  • Allies: The House of Crime (and even then, Murkrow are willing to steal from them as well), Esmeralda Weatherwax & Gytha Ogg, Tweety
  • Enemies: Everyone else with emphasis on the Houses of Commerce, Royalty, and Justice and all Electric, Ice and Fairy deities, Sylvester, The Crow, The Grand Duke of Owls, Clockwerk, The Farmer, Two-Face
  • Additional Relationship: Medivh
  • Fears: Greebo, Fiddlesticks, Eric Draven
  • It all began innocently enough. Several deities reported some of their everyday objects missing, followed by missing ingredients and snacks from the House of Food. Suddenly, the House of Royalty raised alarm that several members' jewelry were pilfered. The House of Justice went into overtime searching and questioning the most likely suspects in the House of Crime and Villains. It was then that the Machine noticed a rather unusual dead tree located within the alleys of the House of Crime that wasn't there before and sent word to nearby police deities to inspect. When they did, they not only discovered the stolen trinkets, foodstuffs and jewels within the tree but also the arrival of 6 strange and angry corvids. The largest of these birds attacked and initially drove off the investigators only for Ash Ketchum (who recognized them to be a murder of Murkrow) to show up and have Pikachu blast them with Thunderbolt while the leader was distracted. The birds were caged and the stolen loot returned. Before the six Murkrow could be removed, Marisa Kirisame vouched for them and liked their moxie. Seeing as they were already in the Pantheon somehow, the Murkrow were given to Marisa as partners. Reimu and the rest of the deities from Gensokyo immediately sensed a feeling of dread.
  • The Murkrow are a flock of six with three males and females respectively with the largest male acting as the leader. For some reason, this "Alpha" Murkrow has the unusual Prankster ability that is not seen among regular wild Murkrow, which only asks more questions as to how this particular Pokemon gained the ability.
    • The Alpha has proven itself to be the murder's leader due to having not just the Prankster ability but also Foul Play as its signature move. That means the stronger the target that tries to go after them, the more damaging the blow. This proves problematic when the flock head to the Combat Dojo, Power Dome or any House with particularly strong deities as its Foul Play becomes stronger there.
  • These birds love shiny objects or anything that would look valuable and snatch them from unsuspecting victims, with their favorite target being the Houses of Commerce and Royalty. Several deities from these and other Houses now have to be careful where they leave things and even have updated security measures with their inclusion in the Pantheon. However, even they are not stupid to steal from the Kecleon Brothers.
  • Their home base and "temple" is the dead tree in the House of Crime. When the murder is sleeping, two particular Murkrow are always left standing guard since they have the Insomnia ability. If any intruder catches their line of sight, they immediately caw the alarm which puts the entire flock to attack.
  • The birds steal from everyone, including the very House they are a part of. However, instead of killing them, several enterprising crime deities have set up a "barter system" with the Murkrow. They exchange whatever items the birds have stolen with random other shiny objects and trash that catch the flock's eyes. With this system in place, Moriarty and other crime leaders are quick to keep whatever valuable things the Murkrow have snatched for their own purposes.
  • Some deities were incensed over the recent Murkrow thefts as even they were also able to evade the ever-present surveillance of the Machine. That was when word reached Medivh and he chose to infiltrate the group as one of his well-known morphs was of a crow. After finding information on the Pokemon in the House of Knowledge, he transformed into a Murkrow and infiltrated the group. The Alpha, however, could tell this "newcomer" was not normal but allowed it to join the flock. Medivh was able to communicate with his allies on the murder's movement and make sure their targets are safely stored away before they could be stolen. This made the lesser Murkrow upset but the Alpha quickly suspected the newcomer is at fault but kept his suspicions to himself.
    • The few times the flock is able to freely pilfer are when Medivh gets called away to battle, which gives the Alpha enough time to launch thieving raids and hide the valuables from the "new bird" to later trade off.
  • As they are modeled after classic witches, the flock is quite amicable towards Granny Weatherwax, who sees the birds as stylish and mischeivous. In return, the Alpha forbade any of the others from stealing from her.
    • Nanny Ogg, however, is not one the flock is glad to be around, especially when Greebo is nearby. Even though the Alpha has his Foul Play which can practically triumph over the evil cat, he really doesn't want to risk it if it fails. Hence, they stay as far away from her as possible when they visit Granny Weatherwax.
  • As they are birds, Sylvester always goes after them to catch as a meal. The flock was able to defeat him the first time with a synchronized Wing Attack flurry, but the feline won't give up on catching them. Their alliance with Tweety is merely one of convenience as they both hate Sylvester.
  • As they are solitary birds, they don't like to hang with other evil birds who they consider as rivals. Once they met the being simply known as The Crow. Just as with Medivh, the Alpha was not fooled for a second as he could tell she was not a normal bird. The Crow attempted to get under the Alpha's feathers with insults over its so-called leadership, but the Murkrow leader knew for a fact she's practically weakened with the lack of Manifestation Energy and rubbed that in her beak along with the embarassing way she was killed. This infuriated her and she proclaimed that if she ever regained her full powers, the Pokemon World would be first on her list to destroy. The flock merely cackled and jeered as they flew away.
    • The Grand Duke of Owls is a particularly sore thorn on the side of the Alpha as both of them tend to fight to establish who is the stronger bird of the night. So far the Alpha Murkrow has managed to eke out victories over the Duke by using Foul Play when the dark owl attempts to use its magic smoke and double the damage. Even so, the Duke will not give up until the flock is gone from the Pantheon.
    • Clockwerk, on the other hand makes the flock green with envy not only for his greater prowess at thievery but also because of his immortality. (That and being a "steel" type makes attacking him useless).
  • As crow-based Pokemon, the flock's favorite food is fresh corn. They frequently target the Farmer's temple to raid his cornfields, which caused no end of grief to the cultivator. Even putting up a scarecrow did little to dissuade the Murkrow from robbing his crops. The Murkrow's carefree days of stealing from the Farmer came to an abrupt end when they attacked one day and saw a new scarecrow they have never seen beforein the middle of the field. The Alpha, accustomed to perching on the scarecrow's head, received the shock of his life as he realized the scarecrow was none other than Fiddlesticks who immediately sent out his own murder of crows to attack. Both the normal and Pokemon crows immediately fought against each other in equal terms but found themselves at a disadvantage when the scarecrow fought alongside them and the Alpha immediately used Tailwind to raise the flock's speed and ordered them to retreat. Since then, they tread carefully when they approach the cornfields.
  • Another being that scares the feathers off the entire flock, the Alpha included, is Eric Draven. They see the crow familiar that hang around him as equally unnatural as Medivh and The Crow, but has a strong aura of power unlike the former. The Alpha may bluster to keep up appearances that he could best Eric's crow in a fight and he's actually right as the bird itself is a weak target, but doesn't want to risk facing Eric's wrath.

    Omar Little 
Omar Devone Little, God of Karmic Thieves and Justified Criminals (The King, The Terror)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/omar_little1.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbols: His Badass Longcoat, his shotgun, and a bag of stolen loot.
  • Alignment: True Neutral, sometimes edging toward Chaotic Neutral or Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Determinator, Karmic Thief, Gayngsters, Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu? (the man steals exclusively from drug dealers and crime syndicates) being feared by those who usually inspire fear themselves, tough guys who don't swear, being very protective of his grandmother but too ashamed to tell her of what he's really doing.
  • Domains: Trickery, Luck, Honor, Community
  • Allies: Carmen Sandiego, Jack Sparrow, Aladdin, Sly Cooper,
  • Enemies: Moriarty, Jim Gordon, Miko Miyazaki, The Dark Judges
  • Opposes: Tony Montana, Walter White, Jay and Silent Bob
  • Odd Friendship: The Corleones
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Dirty Harry, Carmelita Fox
  • After more than a dozen years spent robbing other criminals, and thus gaining a reputation as one of the most badass and notorious criminals to ever walk the streets of Baltimore, his surprisingly sudden death sent shockwaves throughout the underworld. No one could believe that he died in such a mundane manner, and a Gossip Evolution effect began, making his already legendary deeds even more amazing, turning his death into an epic Last Stand, and his name became worshipped by street criminals for a generation to come. As his legend grew and grew, it caused his spirit to ascend to the Pantheon.
  • Ever the thrill seeker, having the chance to steal from the greatest criminals of all time only excited Omar, and now he eagerly pits both his clever schemes and ruthless brand of Flaw Exploitation against some of the most successful criminals in history. Even immortal Criminal Masterminds with the powers of gods have learned to be afraid when they hear someone shout "Omar Comin'!"
    • Oh indeed.
    • It's even gotten to the point that he once went to the House of Food for some Honey Nut Cheerios in nothing but a turquoise silk bathrobe and pajamas. Just the sight of him walking around, even in that getup, caused everyone within a fifty foot radius to run for the hills. And he wasn't armed.
  • Never does any crime on Sunday Mornings, and makes time time to go to church with his grandmother (who raised him as a child) once a month. "A man has got to have a code", as he says. Oddly enough, this has gained him some sympathizers from the House of Faith.
  • He is famous for refusing to ever steal from or harm someone who is not involved in the criminal underworld, and for his fondness for/generosity towards children. If anyone claims to be a follower of his and violates those principles or harms children in any way, Omar's wrath will be swift and merciless.
  • As such, he is a valuable ally with more benevolent deities in the House of Crime as well as a thorn to others. Getting on his good side could make the difference for a new deity if they want to have a good time in the Pantheon.
  • Out of the main three gods, he is most amiable towards Carmen Sandiego who he finds as charming, even if he doesn't swing that way. He refuses to do business with Moriarty and is not above helping detectives foil his plans. With that said, Moriarty has done a good job of making sure not to get into Omar's crosshairs or to make things personal between them, resulting in both Moriarty and Omar seeing Omar's raids and Moriarty's counter strategies as just business, or "It's all in the Game", as Omar would put it. Omar is said to be somewhat indifferent to Jack Sparrow, because while the two have occasionally found the other to be useful business partners, Jack's piracy is simply a very different criminal specialty from Omar's urban based street crime.
  • Out of those in the House of Crime, his favorite target is Walter White. The drug maker has revolutionized the industry, keeping clients high and addicted, thus making Walter a very rich man... and a lucrative target. Omar has been ruthless in robbing Walter's street level dealers and raiding the safe houses where Walter's famous blue meth is stored so he can profit from it himself. White has tried to retaliate with equal force, but Omar is notoriously difficult to track down, and even hardened mob assassins have been known to balk at the prospect of getting into a gang war with Omar Little.
    Omar: Frankly, when you been in it as long as me, you do the thing on your name.
    Detective McNulty: Anybody who's gonna come after Omar, they gonna know that Omar is gonna be coming after him.
    Omar: Oh, indeed.
  • His most famous feud with a figure from outside the House of Crime is undoubtedly Tony Montana. The two have battled each other many times over the years, and the sheer force of will of both individuals means that their confrontations are always brutal, long-lasting, and will always result in the loser vowing to regroup to fight another day.
  • He also sees the deities from the Grand Theft Auto series as a disgrace to the business. With his clout, he has created swathes of territory that his criminal rivals are reluctant to enter or to challenge him, especially since violation of these areas would be met with a harsh reprisal. Trevor Philips in particular has been eager to declare war on the man, which continues to this day.
  • On the side of justice, Judge Dredd keeps him on a short leash, not really one to use him as an acquaintance. Some others in that House are just as fine with that.
    • No matter how much Dirty Harry tries to avoid it, he seems to have a knack with teaming up with Omar Little. He comes in a long line of Cowboy Cops that have to team up with criminals in order to catch greater foes. He knows that Omar can be helpful, he just wishes that he and his followers would not end up with them. Anyone who tries to write any subtext with him and Omar will earn themselves a bullet to the face.
    • At least he has Carmelita to speak about his dealings with criminals as she has to do the same with Sly Cooper.
    • Of those who oppose him, Miko has been the most persistent. But without her Paladin powers, capturing the slippery Karmic Thief has been difficult.
  • Likewise, the Dark Judges savor the thought of hanging Omar for his actions when they get the chance to take over the House of Justice. Unfortunately for them, Dredd tolerates the thief more than their methods of 'justice', and has been willing to protect Omar from them.
  • One of the oddest alliances in the Pantheon has been between Omar Little and Vito Corleone. Omar sees much of the Corleone family business as not truly effecting him or harming his community, and Vito, somewhat surprisingly, has developed a certain fondness for Omar. Given Omar's independent and mercenary operation, Vito Corleone has paid Omar on numerous occasions to either steal from or harass various opponents of the Corleone Family, and Omar has thus far (mostly) refrained from targeting Corleone holdings, both out of respect for Vito's truce with him and due to how lucrative this alliance has been. With that said, Omar does not trust Vito's son Michael. He knows that Michael is more ruthless in his dealings and would turn on someone who gets in his way or outlives their usefulness in an instant. Omar has plenty of experience with such types, as for example he frequently worked with Proposition Joe (a criminal/drug kingpin to whom double dealing and multi-layered plans are almost as natural as breathing) as a mortal man, but he recognizes that Michael is a very different and much less sentimental/honorable sort of criminal than Vito.
  • Wholeheartedly supports Robin Hood's thefts, even joining in with the thieves of Norwood Forest.
  • Has taken a fond liking to the street rat Aladdin, as Omar also grew up on the streets as a young man with crime as his only choice to avoid going hungry and avoid complete destitution. The Arabian is a bit wary of hanging out with Omar, as Omar has always been much more willing to use force and other harsh methods than Aladdin ever was, but nonetheless Aladdin appreciates the backup.
  • Omar has been known to work either alone or coordinating with a small and efficient crew of similarly minded thieves. When working with others, he is known for pulling off especially daring (and frequently hilarious) heists of well guarded and protected targets.
  • As charming and sympathetic as Omar is, it's important to note that while he usually avoids killing if possible, he is perfectly capable of being violent and using force in his thefts. On several occasions the first indication a target got that Omar was there and robbing them was a bullet in the leg before Omar made a grand entrance. Furthermore, his main motivation is the money - while Omar decided early that robbing innocents left a bad taste in his mouth, he targets drug dealers and crime syndicates in large part because he lived in a Wretched Hive, and in such conditions the only people you could guarantee it would be worthwhile to rob were the criminals who were prospering under such conditions. While Omar arguably Defaults to Good, as he did during a 10-Minute Retirement and certain other occasions, he doesn't rob criminals out of a disgust with crime, but because it's worth his while and he do it without accidentally becoming a major target for law enforcement, a fate that once befell Omar's older brother Anthony.
  • Also resides in the House of Karma.
