Travel

The House of Travel is essentially one gigantic vehicle. What kind of vehicle it is exactly is impossible to determine, since it's got a little bit of everything. It has tank treads, wheels, wings, jet engines, dark matter stardrives, and components of every known type of vehicle (and a few unknown). The steering wheel is from an '86 Cavalier, though. Not only is the House of Travel a giant, roving machine, but also serves as a mobile garage, storing and servicing the Pantheon's vehicles. It is, naturally, bigger on the inside. It even features its own set of race tracks where most of the gods of the pantheon sometimes go-kart for fun.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hecate_image_with_dogs.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A woman with three faces with a dog standing beside her.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Domain: Crossroads, Magic, the Underworld, Necromancy, the Moon
  • Portfolio: Protector of crossroads and intersection, Lady of Black Magic, has a lot in common with Hermes, The Hecate Sisters
  • High Priest: Papa Legba
  • Allies: The Greek and Roman Pantheon, especially Hades, Artermis and her husband Hermes, the House of Magic, especially the Weird Sisters, Hellboy, Dream of the Endless, Ren Amamita, Ann Takamaki, Lucifer (SMT), Percy Jackson
  • Enemies: Lady Macbeth, Macbeth, YHVH,
  • Complicated Relationship with: Faust, every versions of Satan
  • Opposes: Oedipus, the other Hades, any Christians in the Pantheon, Hecatia Lapislazuli
  • Opposed by: Dean and Sam Winchester, Geralt, Yennefer, Cirilla, Wonder Woman
  • Summonable By: Hibiki Kuze and Kazuya Minegishi
  • The ancient goddess of crossroads and magic, Hecate's temple is placed on a giant crossroad that leads to the entrance of the House of Travel. She is particularly effective in check in and out the House's wondering inhabitants since she has three faces, a dog and has magical powers that allow her to be present at any crossroads.
  • Is glad to see her fellow Greek Pantheon again. She is particularly happy to reunite with her husband Hermes. Everyone agrees that the two made a good Battle Couple: He represents travelling and messenger, she is the crossroads that he and his followers pass through every single day. Their ascension just made this connection more apparent.
    • She is also happy to see Hades again since she also presides over the Underworld. However, Hecate dislikes the other version of Hades because of how evil and cruel he is and thus avoids him as much as possible.
    • Also glad that her fellow Greek lunar goddess Artemis is also here since they are two part of the Triple Goddess worship.
  • The patron goddess of witchcraft, Hecate is a frequent visitor of the House of Magic in order to hone her knowledge and meet with some of her followers.
    • Is glad to see one of her well-known followers the Weird Sisters again. However, this led Hecate to stumbles right into the witch hunt led by Macbeth and his wife. Angered at someone who harmed her followers, Hecate cursed the couple to get lost at every crossroads they came across. It took them quite a while to figure out the ruse and the Macbeths have sworn revenge on her ever since.
  • Her relationship with Satan is rather... complicated. Many of her followers and fictional portrayals are followers or associate with dark magic, which led to Hecate being influenced by the appearance of any versions of Satan to be much more evil and vindictive. For this reason, she and Hermes have taken an effort to ban Satan from entering her Pantheon. Faust is also on the blacklist since his appearance also triggers her to make a Deal with the Devil with anyone near a crossroad.
    • Because most of her demonization is because of Christianity, she has a tense relationship with all Christians in the Pantheon. She mostly avoids them but declares YHVH an enemy due to his cruelty and subjugation of her fellow Greek deities.
    • That said, she has a good relationship with the SMT version of Lucifer since she has served as one of his generals against YHVH's forces of Order, as well as the fact that his presence doesn't trigger her transformation thanks to being a distinct deity from Satan. She sometimes lends help to demon tamers Hibiki and Kazuya when they summon her. She aids Ren Amamiya for similar reasons as he is comrades with her Persona User, Ann Takamaki.
    • Ren in return is also friendly with her since that Ann's Persona is Hecate. For her part, Hecate is amused with his thieving activity and is fond of him since he is under Hermes's domain of protection. However, her husband Hermes is actively working to keep the two from coming into contact with each other. Given the fact that this is her appearance as a Persona, no one really blames him.
    • And when Ann herself ascended, his job became that much harder, especially when Hecate considered seeking her out.
  • Is on the list of "potential risk" of Sam and Dean Winchester since they have a bad experience with her magic. The same can be said for Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri since one of their enemies Gaunter O'Dimm used magic similar to her.
  • Heard that a woman that was based on her named Hecatia is on the Pantheon and decided to pay a visit. However, Hecate is disappointed when seeing the actual person since Hecate thinks she is too incompetent and doesn't use her power to its fullest potential and avoid contact with Hecatia.
  • While usually doesn't concern herself with other gods business, Hecate recently has been helping a demigod named Hazel to control her power. This earned her good grace in Percy Jackson's eyes.
  • Is not on the best term with Wonder Woman for being the mother of the latter's arch nemesis Circe.

    Kino 
Kino, Goddess of Willing Wanderers (Traveler)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_img_kino.png
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: A silhouette of herself riding Hermes, her talking motorcycle
  • Theme Music: Beautiful World
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: The Gunslinger, Bifauxnen, A Traveler and her Talking Motorcycle, Beware the Nice Ones, Legacy Character, The Stoic, Only One Name
  • Domains: Girls, Travelers, Motorcycles
  • Followers: Martha Jones
  • Herald: Hermes
  • Allies: Bartz Klauser, Wander, Chen Stormstout, Samurai Jack, AZ, Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Opposes: Big Brother, Gleeman Vox
  • Odd Friendship with: Johnny Blaze
  • Kino has travelled through a number of strange and unusual locations and has stayed three nights and two days in all of them so that she can understand the important aspects of whatever place she is at and have enough time to head over to a new location. She is unbiased, calm, and polite by default, but she can defend for herself thanks to her skills with firearms, with a revolver and pistol being her default ones.
  • While in a far-off village where Kino and Hermes were spending three days and two nights there, she was told about a place where unpredictability happens so often that it's become normal for something unusual to happen at that place. Once Kino finished her time at that village, she decided to head over to that rumored place while acknowledging that there appeared to be no specific way to get there. While sleeping at a camp she set up somewhere, Kino had a dream where a mysterious figure told her and Hermes that they're closer to their destination than they think. After waking up, Kino and Hermes continued their journey and eventually came across a checkpoint managed by a border inspector.
    • After a conversation with The Inspector going over a number a things, the two were clear to enter and Kino found herself in a place where many different styles collided with each other, including various things that she had never met before. From there, Kino headed towards the welcoming committee of her destination and found what appeared to be a party. A hyperactive pink pony named Pinkie Pie greeted Kino and they (alongside Hermes) talked about the place Kino was at. Pinkie said that the place was known as a Pantheon and that unpredictability is the norm around there. She even told Kino that this Pantheon was enormous and that there's plenty of different aspects to explore. While Kino is something of a tireless traveler, she felt willing to rest up in a fixed place while exploring whatever it is that the Pantheon has to offer.
  • Kino does have a distinct opinion of the Pantheon itself when it comes to what's present and has sometimes been reminded of a handful of her own journeys through different locales. Notably, the Pantheon includes varying levels of different technology present akin to some of her previously visited spots and the denizens all have different viewpoints of the world, be it idealistic or cynical. Beyond the Pantheon itself are a a handful of places connected to it, ranging from straightforward to dangerous. In a way, Kino sees the Pantheon as a sort of amalgamation of her adventures across her world (especially when it comes to the beauty and danger of it) with more possibilities.
  • While there are a handful of other motorcyclists in the Pantheon, Kino hasn't really hanged out with them on a regular basis, but does consider them very interesting individuals and they find it intriguing that she has a talking motorcycle as her companion. She's a bit curious about Johnny Blaze and how he has traveled to a number of places, including some that are really dangerous for her to go to. Johnny told her that he has been traveling to various places to search for those who have put innocents in grave danger. Kino has stated that she travels on her own volition and has been able to defend for herself with what she has. Johnny added that the Pantheon poses a lot of dangers, but there are those who keep it safe for others to continue their normal lives, something that Kino acknowledged before they parted on good terms with each other.
  • Even though her consistently traveling through different locations means she isn't going to be able to hang out with others a lot, she did manage to strike up a friendship with Wander, another being who has traveled across various places. Kino did find it interesting that Wander was committed to making other happy not matter what the circumstance might be since she has traveled to a lot of places where it could potentially be difficult for Wander to achieve that goal, but she did acknowledge his determination and respected it to some degree nevertheless.
  • Among the only items that Kino brings with her during travels is a couple of guns as a means of self-defense. She also practices in Quick Draw so that she can be more aware of any potential threat sneaking up behind her. With the number of gunslingers in the Pantheon and how some of them are also freelancers looking for a hit on their hands, Kino has taken the opportunity to better prepare herself in marksmanship, though she is on good terms with gunslingers who protect others against their more vicious counterparts.
  • One of her travels resulted in her in participating in some deadly colosseum battles held by a corrupt individual. While she tried her best to convince her opponents to surrender peacefully, it led to one of them being murdered by the emperor in question and at the end, she ended up killing the emperor and ending the killing games. Despite her trying to be as neutral as possible, Gleeman Vox is notably one of the very few people she dislikes since his tendencies to kidnap others and force them into colosseum deathmatches against their will is reminiscent to what happened to her, even if Gleeman Vox's take on it is far more over-the-top.
  • Before becoming a traveler, she was just a regular girl in a town that enforced a law that made anyone over the age of 12 to undergo a brain operation to make the permanently happy whilst doing any kind of job, with resistance towards that law being met with death, as a man named Kino (whom she got her name from) found out while protecting her. She notably doesn't like anyone that wants to force that kind of artificial happiness onto others, with Big Brother being the most notable after talking to someone familiar with the figure and in opposition to Big Brother's plans. Not only does that tyrant have an even worse version of the "be happy no matter what" law that Kino's former hometown had, but a lot of other twisted laws to fit his mindset and crush any opposition towards him. Kino knows that she can't do anything against Big Brother and that it's more up to those capable of resisting his power, but he's still among the very few deities she hates.
  • There are a handful of other travelers that Kino got along with after getting to know them better. Given the kinds of professions that Bartz Klauser tackled in his adventures, he has made some suggestions to her in making her travels safer, though Kino said that she's fine with what she has. Both tend to have good conversations with each other whenever they meet. Given that Kino has tried plenty of different food in her travels, she has taken a liking to Chen Stormstout's cooking and is curious about his own adventures. Kino finds what AZ has gone through to be a compelling story and is hoping that things turn out well for him now that he has resolved his own issues, with AZ hoping that Kino continues to be fine in her travels and not end up like what he was in the past.
    • Samurai Jack was a wanderer that got Kino's attention, reminding her a bit of a swordsman she's sometimes met named Shizu on first glance. Jack's story surprised Kino a bit, especially with what happened towards the end of his adventures. Jack is also interested in the stories that Kino has, even if she doesn't have any significant goal she wants to accomplish and has no real home to speak of. The two sometimes meet up and exchange stories of their adventures around the Pantheon.
  • Every so often, she finds herself involved in an assist role between clashes among certain deities, with her using her gun to shoot before taking off on her motorcycle. Compared to her experience of being a contestant in a killing game, she doesn't find the assist role in these particular skirmishes to be nearly as bad, especially since if these particular deities do fight against each other, it's more or less for honing their skills.
    • Some of these instances had her in Green Hill Zone, an idyllic place that looked like a much more colorful version of the various forests and plains she travels through between destinations. At one point after a fight had concluded between different deities, Kino had an encounter with Sonic the Hedgehog, who knows Green Hill Zone very well, and the two had a conversation with each other about their travels. Sonic found Kino's "three days and two nights" limit a bit odd, though given his mindset, he told her that the time spent at those visits can be used to the fullest, especially when something unexpected happens along the way. Kino has taken the advice into consideration, mostly since Sonic has traveled through a lot of interesting places of his own throughout his career.
  • One of the very few times that Kino's normally stoic demeanor was shattered was when she witnessed a volcano destroy a town that she finished visiting. She then read a letter given to her by its residents that stated that they knew about the impending destruction, but decided to stay in the land that they grew up in and loved. From her experience in the Pantheon, she knew that others grew to like the place, though there are some who aren't as fond of it. Kino is also aware that the Pantheon itself is at risk of destruction on a regular basis, though life still goes on for everyone, herself included, no matter what.

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Magic School Bus with Liz at the wheel

  • Herald: Liz, her iguana and Fiona Frizzle (her younger sister)
  • Allies: Eikichi Onizuka, The Pagemaster
  • The Academy needed a teacher to deal with the most important subject in classes: the class trip. No sooner than that, Ms. Frizzle arrived with her bus, and invited the multitude of students for a field trip that the students are still unable to explain for it being that awesome. She immediately got a position in the House of Travel.
    • The higher-ups are in wonder of the Magic School Bus in question which is capable of transforming into almost anything, can express emotions, etc. The only thing known is that the person who created it wasn't magical in any way, shape or form.
  • She is interested in how Jack and Annie learn through their tree house and wonders if the two could give lessons to some of the students in the academy through the tree house. Jack and Annie are still considering the offer.
  • Gets along well with many of the gods in the House of Knowledge and is interested in planning field trips to some of the strange and bizarre worlds that many of the otherworldly gods live. The Academy is debating on whether or not that's a good thing, though.
  • It is strictly advised that Yukari Tanizaki never gets behind the wheel of the Magic School Bus.
  • A common theory among many Gods of the Pantheon is that Ms. Frizzle is a Time Lady, with the Bus acting as her TARDIS. The Doctor has yet to comment on this.
    • Then again, the 13th Doctor is a woman…
  • Is making a grand return but she's now letting her sister be in charge of the Magic School Bus while she focuses on classes at the Celestial Academy. Fiona Frizzle has now ascended as her big sister's herald.
  • After Boomstick's Top 10 list of Deadliest Cars, a lot of attention has been drawn to her bus, which made the top spot, which she wasn't amused with, and not all of them are welcome.
  • Her motto: "Take chances, make mistakes and get messy!"

    Yukiko Amagi 
Yukiko Amagi, Goddess of Inns (especially Japanese-style) (Yuki-chan, Amagidyne, Drunkiko, Crazy Hyena, The Unconquerable Snow Black)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c1348929048ebf61bea4ce2c17741a7c.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Theme Music: Princess Amagi
  • Symbol: A miniaturized version of the Amagi Inn
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Managing and Protecting the Amagi Inn, Yamato Nadeshiko prone to snapping when pushed too far, Laughing Fits, Nightmare Fetishes, Fire Magic, Healing Magics, Combat Hand Fans, Elegant Fighting and Persona-Summoning, School Idols, Ladies-of-War in Red, Tights and a Skirt, Being a God-tier troll when she feels like it, Mystery Food X, those who have faced their Shadow Archetypes.
  • Domain: Travel, Magic, Inns.
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Yuuki Terumi, Nyarlathotep, Tohru Adachi, Monokuma and his Mastermind, the Psycho Rangers (particularly Psycho Pink), SHOCKER
  • Opposed by: Ghost Rider, for harboring Amaterasu, whose flight into Ama-no-Iwato was, in Ghost Rider's eyes, a cowardly and grossly inconsiderate act.
  • Feared by: Hanako Ikezawa
  • Does Not Fear: Carmine Prime
  • Ascended the moment she drove away paparazzi from the family inn, all with just threats, which symbolizes her protectiveness of the Inn. She is now actively petitioning for the Inn to be made into a Dominion.
    • She and Kanji kicked off the Investigation Team's collective ascension, which was completed when Yosuke ascended into the House of Mentalism before he and Kanji relocated to the House of Personality.
    • Aya Shameimaru, being a paparazza herself, is a Persona Non Grata at the Inn (no pun intended). Unfortunately for Yukiko, Aya's Super Speed allows her to take any pictures she wishes and get out before any one can notice her.
  • Terumi hates her because her Persona looks like something he utterly hated (Amaterasu). Likewise, Yukiko hates him for being an utter bastard, dissing her inn, and tells him off that all he's doing and rambling about despair and lies were nothing but like a kid throwing a tantrum because he can't get what he wants. That's after she let him in her inn… and then purposely messed up the scheduling and such so Terumi didn't have a pleasant 'stay' (like Yu, Yosuke, Kanji, and Teddie would attest from their experience in the mortal world).
  • Is not really advised to go to the comical houses of the Theater since her laughing fits could be endless that way. Shut up, it's an endearing character trait.
  • Still occasionally visits the Food Houses to improve her cooking. As of current, even the Gods fear of what she could create in kitchen, dubbed 'Mystery Food X', and hoped the Food Houses can fix that.
    • To proof how deadly her cooking is, she once baked cookies. In hindsight, it made a ghost fall in a coma to have nightmares and made a fragment of a primordial being go catatonic! Simply put, no one even dares to taste her cooking.
    • That being said, she once encountered Noel Vermillion in which both of the girls cooked something together. Once the meal was done, Yukiko knew that the meal was bad news and runs away out of fear. She would be forced to eat it if it weren't Hyde Kido helping her. Since then, Yukiko and Hyde became good allies.
  • Similarly, during that same adventure where she encountered Noel and Hyde, she became good allies with Rachel Alucard, and Weiss Schnee. She is also shown to be not scared of Carmine Prime stating he reminds her of Kanji Tatsumi.
  • In terms of training, she tends to train with Mai Shiranui, due to their weapon of choice, element, and other similar traits, and she seems to think of her as a Cool Big Sis. However, Yukiko flat out refused when Mai offered her some clothing tips, as she's really embarrassed to wear something like that… in public anyway. If she's in the same room as Yu Narukami, she doesn't seem to mind…
    • She even secretly asked Ryuko Matoi to let her borrow Senketsu and show it to Narukami in case the two are alone, together.
  • At one point, Yukiko decided to seriously try breaking her habit of wearing red all the time, and after much time and effort actually managed to pick out an outfit for herself without so much as a hint of it. Putting it on and looking in the mirror, she realized with a jolt she looked like Homura Akemi.
  • Recently met Igor for the first time. When questioned about her visit to the Velvet Room, she replied that the atmosphere and cryptic charm of her host was very enjoyable.
  • Cried Tears of Joy when Chie Satonaka ascended to the House of Food. They celebrated with beef bowls and a dip in the hot springs.
  • Don't eat her fried tofu.
  • Having played the saxophone when she was mortal, will occasionally visit the House of Music to polish her skills and even practice as a band alongside her teammates… when lead singer Rise isn't being interrupted by I-No.
  • Aided Sayaka Miki in facing her Shadow in time for the Great Upheaval.
  • An unfortunate series of events left Yukiko feared by Hanako Ikezawa of the House of Love. Chie had been introducing Hanako to Yukiko, and the two were hitting it off pretty well when Terumi decided to crash the party as payback for the "Inn"-cident. She managed to mach him insult for insult, before he finally lost his temper and tried to attack her outright. Before Chie could stop her, Yukiko summoned her Persona and turned Terumi into a screaming fireball. Unfortunately, the sight sent Hanako into a panic attack, and nowadays she shies away from Yukiko whenever she approaches, utterly unable to speak. Yukiko has expressed a lot of regret for this: she hadn't noticed Hanako's burns hidden under her hair, and has a sinking feeling that it was what Terumi had been planning all along.
    • On the plus side, both Chie and Yukiko find Hanako Ikezawa much more agreeable than their mortal classmate, Hanako Ohtani.
    • When it was announced that she would be participating in a new battle tournament, with Terumi already on the roster, Yukiko simply cracked her knuckles and said "Good. I've been itching for a rematch!"
  • Following SHOCKER's ascension, Yukiko has stepped up her vow to protect the Amagi Inn should they try anything funny, especially since Skyrider also has a presence in this House.
  • In spite of their questionable tactics, Yukiko has been convinced that the recently-ascended Phantom Thieves of Hearts are a good thing; given her previous experience with her Shadow, she actually enjoys seeing adults who succumbed to their Shadows and made others around them suffer receive abrupt wake-up calls. She's fine with the group as long as they don't try to steal anything from the Amagi Inn, and actually made good friends with the student-council president Makoto Niijima, both being within the same arcana.
