  • Today was quiet one with the air a still and frigid chill even with the sun in the middle of the sky. Yet all would not be quite well for long on this fine, fine day. It was at this time the GUAE had secretly set up a large encampment somewhere off in the House of Nature. A dispatch team from the GUAG eventually got word and were sent to scout out such a place, though they could never of anticipated what happens next. Beings and creatures like the Terraformars and "Hunter" Series BOWs have suddenly appeared out of the blue to assault the place, yet something is off about them. They aren't hostile to them and made way to the encampment, seemingly driven by an unknown single-minded purpose through it all. Patches of their bodies glow a golden hue, their eyes an amber yellow, their clustered veins now opaque by it all. Accompanying them are figures covered head to toe in golden armor, some utilizing powers of electricity and the spectra of light itself. As these mysterious forces drove out the GUAE in numberless hordes the base was soon assaulted by lightning from the sky before soon being buried by roots.
    • The team bore witness to the entire thing, even as the forces disappeared quick as they came, and were left speechless. Soon after trying to process what just happened a voice from above spoke to them. The voice revealed herself as the Daedric Prince, Meridia, and admitted responsibility to the base's annihilation as well as tipping the GUAG off of such a movement. "But for what purpose?" They asked, and Meridia responded that it was a way to reveal herself. She cited that they intended to practice actions most profane on the House and opted to stop their defilement. The GUAG's presence here serve as additional witnesses to her entrance to the Pantheon, which they were. The same also goes for them seeing the sheer collateral damage wrought by her attack.
  • An unusual member among the many Daedric Princes, Meridia did not actually start out as one herself. Once, there was a time in which she was better known as Merid-Nunda, a Magne-Ge or Star-Orphan. As a Child of Magnus she joined with him in fleeing from partaking in the creation of Nirn to Aetherius when he realized the sheer cost of such a project. Merid-Nunda, however, would at some point be cast out from Aetherius for consulting with "illicit spectra" and when the Daedra chided her for trespassing in Oblivion she willed a realm of her own thus and out of necessity she took on the mantle of Daedric Prince for herself. This once-Mange-Ge would be now from then on as Meridia, and the mortal races of Nirn will know of her light. The Pantheon, too, will bear witness the same having ascended under the domain of What Is One Man's Life in Comparison?, of which she is a thoroughly believer in. If people, even including her own loyal followers, have to perish to achieve what she views as a greater good then so be it.
  • If there's one fact that's very well known about Meridia would be her absolute hatred of undeath itself. Be it from the dead that walk once more to those who actively practice in such a thing Meridia will see to it that they be destroyed. It is why she is one of Molag Bal's Arch Enemies as the Lord of Brutality was responsible for the conception of undeath itself, among many other things. This belief of hers persists in the Pantheon, declaring herself to any of the undead and necromancers present and vowing to see the House of Undead be obliterated someday. Theories arose in that the House's existence may of drawn Meridia to the Pantheon in the first place. There stands two individuals at the pinnacle of such animosity, Nekron and Nagash, for not only their actions in their home universes but also the ones done to spite her. Galakrond is also quite high on that list, being a dragon returned to the living and who's sheer gluttony has him devour just about anything, his victims themselves turning into undead. A force of nature, so to speak. The tipping point came when after when in one of his rampages he demolished an entire temple dedicated to her. Meridia, very calmly, assaulted him with a Pillar of Light aimed straight at the Ur-Dragon's eyes. She only ceased when other Overdeities stepped in to drive him off and stop her wrath, concerned that she'll take out her anger on the surroundings as well and escalating the damages.
    The undead are foul, unnatural things. Some of my rivals take pleasure in these abominations. Not Meridia. I wish these creatures destroyed.
    • We could not stress the absolute part of her hatred towards undead enough. Meridia is indiscriminate in her drive to wipe them off the face of the world itself. It matters not if they aren't evil or have done a lot of good things in the end like with Talion or Squigly nor does it matter if they are only partially so like if they are a Dhampyr. She even scoffs at the existence of The Guardians, viewing them as mere puppets brought from their tombs by their so-called light.
    • It also comes as a given that she is a fierce opponent to the entire House of Darkness & Shadow along with any deity associated with the shade. As far as Meridia is concerned, the "good" ones are too afraid to walk with her in the light.
  • Her hatred of the unliving, along with her divinely depictions and presence and acting as the Big Good during Molag Bal's Planemeld often leads to attributions that she is a "benevolent" Daedric Prince by many. This is a very big mistake and you should not mistake her actions or her words as genuine altruism. What good she does is simply a consequence of her self-interests. This is the same Daedric Prince who had zero problems supporting her Ayleid followers, a race who were notorious for their cruelty to humanity of which they enslaved. The most notable of her assistance to them would be the time she gave help to Umaril the Unfeathered, saving his life where upon he would come back to try and overthrow the Nine Divines in revenge for the Wild Elves' downfall. To say nothing of her tendency to manipulate people and sacrifice them and her tendencies to inflict Disproportionate Retribution if displeased or crossed.
    • It for this reason that, after the GUAG reported Meridia's entrance in the Pantheon, Cosmos and by extension many in the GUAG would rather not associate themselves with the Lady of Infinite Energies and as such frequently butt heads with eachother should the situation allow them to cross paths. Cosmos and the Alliance are firmly for prioritizing all life whereas Meridia would only look out for the select few. And the few are perfectly liable to be culled if she deems it necessary in some way, shape, or form. Both Cosmos and Meridia have since been common opponents of one another.
  • In a bid to gather up allies to counter the ones Molag Bal had formed in the Pantheon alongside other entities and beings she deemed despicable, Meridia had manifested her to other entities in a bid to form an alliance of her own. Her first outing was... not quite successful, to say the least. While she had seen success in enticing Galeem after appealing to his perpetual conflict with Dharkon and sympathizing with it along with the Angels of Paradiso having no problem in following the Daedric Prince, her meeting YHVH went considerably less well. The two ended up being bothered by each-other more than anything else in the end. The Light of Destruction, due to its desire for the destruction of all things, was more so that and the relationship with it was even more strained with Meridia stating it's as simple-minded as Mehrunes Dagon. They're on somewhat better terms when it's seeking to be worshiped as a deity though not by much. And The Radiance immediately began on bad terms as she is paranoid that Meridia's presence is yet another way in which she will eventually be eclipsed and forgotten. Not helping things was the Glister Witch's response to that which to this day has stuck with the infection that once plagued Hallownest:
    Save yourself your delusions. A campfire could never hope to outshine a star, much less the break of dawn.
    • Her presence was not well received in the House of Light & Brightness received either. Setting aside her willingness to ally with the Light of Destruction, just about everyone in that House were put off by Meridia's demeanor and though Ezalor, being the head of the sub-House itself, does try to keep her at bay it is undeniable she has a stake there due to her domains. Not helping things is her singling out Zs'Skayr, viewing him as an intruder, and Necrozma's, whom she expressed disgust towards its exploitation in the past by humanity and has continuously offered to her service to restore it to its glory days. Zs'Skayr both hates and is scared shitless by her while Necrozma is visibly disturbed by her, especially after its Heel–Face Turn.
    • Lumine, surprisingly, came up to her to offer an alliance. Emphasizing his similar associations with light and associations with angels Meridia deemed him worthy of an ally. It can be assumed Lumine did so to gain not only a very powerful ally but also Aurorans at his command to further his goals of both enslaving and/or destroying the older gen Reploids and other inferior robots. Serving Meridia for such benefits in no way really goes against such wishes.
  • As a being heavily associated with light and its spectra it would only come natural that the realm she carved from the chaos of the Void would reflect that. The Colored Rooms are a place of coral reefs and floating rock underneath a starry night sky, the floor holding it all together being the realm's solid luminescent waters. Aurorans roam the place. Mankar Camoran, the leader of the Mythic Dawn cult, once incorrectly attributed in his speech that Meridia's realm was that of the ever-dour and bleak Coldharbour... The realm of Molag Bal, her fiercest enemy. Suffice it to say, don't try to play off this piece of misinformation as fact. It's not as bad as messing with her shrines, but don't test your luck.
  • Has had a few notable relationships about two members of the Angiris Council, or in the case of Imperius and Malthael one member and one former member, respectively. In the case of the latter it is quite easy to boil down the relationship between the two as mutual opposition despite both being Fallen Angels. For Malthael it involves his status as the Archangel of Death versus her associations with life energies and thus partially styles herself and partially depicted as a Friend to All Living Things (as much as that is put into debate countless times), so it would only come as natural that they'd clash. His motivations to Kill All Humans has also dampened the situation between the two given there are humans who do worship her.
    • Imperius is a more complicated matter, however. Though both Meridia and Imperius work to maintain their ideal visions order, are cordial should it stay that way, and are willing to go through extreme lengths be it the Glister Witch working through her agents, manipulation, and sacrifices while Archangel of Valor while without hesitation be in the thick of it, they actually tend to clash quite a lot. While there's Meridia's nature as a Daedra, though connect demon to Daedroth is pretty loose, there's the difference in attitude. The Archangel is, at his core, utterly uptight and arrogant. Meanwhile Meridia, for as much as she is very manipulative and narcissistic, is comparatively less strict and is able to be nice and is able sincerely reward those who serve her well.
  • She has a few artifact to her name as a Daedric Prince with her most famous Daedric artifact being Dawnbreaker, a golden ebony sword forged in holy light. With the ever-radiant Dawnstar Gem in its crossguard it is a weapon tailed to destroy the walking dead, burning them upon contact and even reportedly causing them to explode upon death. Simply put, it is their bane though there have been accounts of it also being effective against werewolves and even Daedra themselves. It is not an infallible weapon of divine judgement, however. Through the machinations of the Daedric Prince, Nocturnal, it had one point been corrupted into a sword known as Duskbringer though it would soon be restored to its original form through the sacrifice of her champion, Darien Gautier. There are some who seek to return the blade to Duskbringer once more though Meridia has made it clear that anyone who attempts so will get suffer for their troubles.
    • While it's not as well known she is also associated with the Ring of Khajiit, an artifact that grants its wearer silence in movement, enhanced speed, and even invisibility. It was once stolen by Rajhin, a famous Khajiit thief, who used such a ring to pull off grand heists and earned his infamy that persists even today. Eventually, his overuse of its powers made the artifact abandon him to his doom. now, the ring is an odd artifact to Meridia name, however, in that it is also the property of the Daedric Prince, Mephala, and it seems fitting to her considering her associations with lies and secrets. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that they're the only Daedric Princes who's spheres are obscured to mortal eyes? Who knows.
    • During the events of Skyrim's civil war and the return of the dragons a necromancer defiled a temple in the providence, exploiting the lives lost to raise them as shades. Thus, the Prince sent out the Beacon of Meridia in an undisclosed location for an adventurer to find and be prompted to expel said necromancer, of which The Dragonborn accomplished and was granted Dawnbreaker. Others who stumble upon her Beacon are apprehensive at touching it, mainly so for the fact that they know that the moment they do so they'll be assaulted by the Daedric Prince's lack of indoor voice.
  • Few individuals in the Pantheon could earn a special kind of enmity from Meridia. Included in this particular list is The Ancestor, who's actions brought ruin to not only to his family and blood but also the world around him. Necromancy, demon summoning which then created the Swinefolk and Formless Flesh, an old colleague's witchery, deals with the Pelagic, and calling upon the cosmos' unholiness are all damning evidence. To Meridia, the Darkest Estate and its surrounding lands corruption in the air and earth itself are waiting to be burned by her light. With the existence of the Darkest Dungeon and by extension the presence of the Heart of Darkness is it any wonder why she hates the place so much? And that's not even going over the Heart's rival, The Sleeper, which awaits it as soon as it breaks free from its comet prison.
  • If a partially surviving Ayleid manuscript is anything to go by, Meridia has the ability to alter the rate at which time flows forward through the prismatic refraction of light. This piece of information has alarmed many deities in the House of Time and Space, in particular setting the Dahaka in motion to watch Meridia's actions. In that same manuscript it also mentions that her "real" role in history was lost, muddying the waters of what kind of entity she truly is. Meanwhile, Cetrion caught wind of the claim and came to Meridia seeking an alliance on Kronika's behalf. Meridia bluntly refused, being unable to tolerate Cetrion and Kronika's familial connection to Shinnok, nor does she have any desire for the supposed balance Kronika seeks. For the Prince's part, she believes the Hourglass is belonging for more fitting hands in the end.
The light of Meridia cleanses and purifies. There is nothing to fear from its brilliant embrace.

  • Conflicting Opinion
  • Opposes: Present and Future Zeno (for the most part)
  • Respects: Sparda
  • The personification of the human race. Spent 40,000 years manipulating humanity from the shadows before events forced him to take a more active role. Did not want to be worshiped, but humanity needed a god and he was the only one up to it. That said, he has had some success in convincing them he's not really one... just better.
  • Ironically, while he is himself a rather "glass half-full" kind of guy, his power is proportional to the grimdarkness of the dimension he is in at the time. In Bokurano-land he is mightier than O-Haruhi-Sama, and in Teletubby-land he wields less than half his usual might, though still possessing great power. It's probably because he doesn't really need much power in worlds like the latter anyway, where things tend to be going fine.
  • Would like to note he does not want to exterminate xeno life wherever it is, and wouldn't mind living in peace with other alien races. He'd just prefer they accept his idea of peace (mainly the aliens under his rule) and not the aliens' idea of peace (like exterminating all life in the galaxy or keeping humans like zoo animals). Furthermore, he thinks the current Imperium's goal of trying to exterminate all aliens in the galaxy is not only impossible but also impractical, and is working day and night to fix this problem.
  • For some reason, many of his followers have an intense hatred of ponies, especially the divine ones in the Pantheon. The same thing goes for furries or anyone from the Starcraft universe. What his own views of these species are, well, that's one of the many questions about him that nobody knows.
  • He learned of an Expy of his that is the Big Bad in Strike Legion, and after looking at her rule over her own Imperium, he is ready to confront her for her crimes against Humanity should she ever ascend to the Pantheon, though is also pulling some strings in the Celestial Bureaucracy to ensure that she never ascends at all.
    • His actions in his own universe were made out of necessity and the current state of his Imperium was beyond his control but his expy's actions are needlessly cruel and evil, plus her insistence on forcing Humanity to worship her as God is anathema to him.
  • The God Emperor is the only being the Chaos Gods ever truly feared. He is the greatest embodiment of Order in their home universe and their eternal enemy, so much so that the Dark Gods have dubbed him as the Anathema.
    • The God Emperor does not oppose the Chaos Gods for petty reasons such as power or influence, but because of his love and dedication to all Humanity. Without the Emperor to oppose them, the Chaos Gods would taint Mankind with their corruption, twisting and defiling all Humankind by their dark powers. His love for Mankind is so great that even on the brink of death, he chose to be eternally preserved upon the Golden Throne for all time, neither living nor dead. His will is constantly challenging the Dark Gods even as his body decays, trapping him in eternal torment as his soul suffers agony beyond measure lighting the Astronomicon to light the way for the Imperium.
      • What makes his sacrifice even greater is that he could have let himself die and be reborn in a new body but a single moment of lapse in concentration would result in Terra being overwhelmed by legions of Daemons, that would mercilessly butcher the hundreds of billions of people living on the planet and turn the homeworld of Mankind itself into an abominable Daemon World.
  • Now and then, he will have enough of sitting on the Golden Throne and transfer his soul into a Tarrasque in order to REALLY shake things up. A healthy body to inhabit allows him to perform feats greater than what he can in the mummified remnants of his original body. Said feats include freeing the Eldar goddess Isha and Eldrad Ulthran from the clutches of Nurgle and Slaanesh respectively, rescuing his son Jaghatai Khan from a chronovortex, curb-stomping the armies of Chaos, etc. Slaanesh and Khorne are fuming in rage for this, Tzeentch offered no comment, and Nurgle was mad, but surprisingly got over it quickly.
  • Now and then he gives Asura questioning looks. Some speculate that this is because he thinks that Asura may be one of his erased Primarchs, which would explain how he managed to create The Angry Marines. Only the most pissed off being in the universe would suffice for such a Chapter.
    • On a similar note, he gains a sad but proud look whenever he sees Gimli. This may be because of the grievous losses and near extinction the Squats suffered through in their continued existence in the galaxy. He is also pissed off at the massive amount of stupidity that ensued when the Imperium realized the Squats survived. Seeing the Adeptus Mechanicus, the Inquisition, and the Administratum argue about who to blame for losing the Squats really didn't make him happy.
  • Though he is fully capable of interacting with the other gods in the immortal planes, he is unable to do much in the mortal realms, due to his avatar still being a dying corpse on the Golden Throne. Nobody wants to unplug it, uncertain of what will happen if they do.
    • However, he did later get a Text-To-Speech Device installed into the Golden Throne. He has become a lot more chatty since then.
    About fucking time! I have so many things to complain about.
  • Despite the bitter and caustic manner he voices himself, the God-Emperor is genuinely sorrowful at what has become of his Imperium; his intended paradise of reason and science has been twisted into a despotic and bureaucratic mess, but with the installation of the Text to Speech device, he has begun restoring the Imperium to what it was meant to be.
  • He's not too happy about Kars convincing The Adeptus Custodes to dress up like the Pillar Men in order to show him tribute.
  • Upon learning that the traitor Primarch Magnus had ascended to the Pantheon he ordered Marneus Calgar and the Ultramarines to capture and bring him before the Golden Throne for judgement.
    • A binary encoded message from the Captain-General of the Adeptus Custodes has revealed that Calgar has somehow succeeded in his mission and is now returning with Magnus. However, the Emperor's response to this development is not what anyone would have expected…
    • After a long heart to heart and revelation of previously unknown secrets the Emperor and Magnus have begun overcoming their mutual issues with each other. To prove his goodwill, the Emperor overpowered the Chaos God Tzeentch to restore Magnus's soul. Afterwards, the Emperor revealed that he intended to recover the Primarchs once more and fulfill Mankind's birthright as the masters of the Galaxy.
    • To that intent he has since ordered the Ultramarines to discreetly recover Vulkan's artifacts for the Salamanders to find and bring him along. Apparently, he thinks only they can get the job done.
    My reason says "FUCK NO, GET RID OF THAT BLUE BLOB OF NAMBY-PAMBY FECAL MATTER." But my institution says "SEND THEM TO DO SHIT AND STUFF WILL GO FORWARD." I will go with the latter because I have like prophetic powers and stuff.
  • There are not many things that can bring a smile to his face. But one of those things that can are a Centurion from The Imperial Fists. Who, as it turned out to even the Emperor's amazement, is his supposedly-dead son, Rogal Dorn of the Imperial Fists.
  • He also appears to have a very weird father-son relationship with the Captain-General of the Adeptus Custodes, calling him son and getting called Dad in return.
  • His alliance with Madoka Kaname is because she represents the hope humanity both needs and deserves. When he heard that YHVH was planning to kill her, he became one of the masterminds of The Pantheonic Rebellion. He has since ordered three entire chapters of the Adeptus Astartes (Space Wolves, Salamanders, and Blood Ravens), three regiments of the Imperial Guard (Cadian 8th, Tanith 1st and Only, and Valhallan), 9 Bane Blades, 4 War Hound Titans, 2 Warlord Titans, and 1 Emperor Titan to Madoka's defense.
  • The Emperor abhors both YHVH and Lucifer, seeing the two of them as abominations that feed on human emotions and only cause suffering much like the Chaos Gods. YHVH's order to have Madoka killed only intensified that disgust but he remembers that it was Lucifer who put all these events into motion.
  • The Emperor has gained an alliance with another founder of the Magical Girl Sisterhood, Usagi "Serena" Tsukino, as well as another of the Sailor Senshi, Hotaru Tomoe, by the existence of an alternate universe wherein the Senshi were resurrected as the Emperor's daughters.
  • Homura Akemi reminds the Emperor too much of his fallen son, Horus. Both so filled with passion and drive, only to be twisted and broken. With the existence of a universe where Homura became the temporary host to the Emperor's soul while he acted as a replacement father to her, creating a bond between them to the extent that she called him dad, the Emperor has decided to try and convince her to abandon Lucifer.
    • The Chaos Gods fear the possibility of this alliance occurring elsewhere in the Multiverse and within the Pantheon. Such an alliance would likely result in their destruction and as such, they act with all their powers to prevent this from happening.
  • Has begun having humanity's history from before the Age of Strife written down and sent throughout the House of Knowledge for mass copying and distribution, angry at the fact that most of it is currently censored for some reason.
  • The God Emperor is furious and greatly disappointed at the result of the End Times. To see a world that has withstood multiple Chaos incursions destroyed because of idiocy and treachery and the lives of billions of human lives lost as a result, has greatly infuriated Him.
    • The Lord of Mankind has begun to consolidate His forces and made motions to ascend the remaining loyalist Primarchs and other champions of Mankind. His servants have shown an increased preparation for conflict and the other Gods fear the potential beginnings of the Second War in Heaven.
  • After learning the end results of the End Times, the God Emperor has ordered His servants to apprehend the necromancer Nagash and bring the lich to justice, for both his crimes against Humanity and his actions during the End Times.
    • He also gave hints that He seeks the ascension of the Warrior-God Sigmar Heldenhammer. A legendary Champion of Mankind that defeated the first Everchosen of the Chaos Gods and banished Nagash for more than two thousand years, Sigmar's arrival would be welcome sight within the Pantheon for the God Emperor.
  • Upon being asked his opinion of both The Great Upheaval and The Pantheonic Rebellion, The Emperor's response was rather simple.
  • As one of the foremost Champions and God of Humanity, the Emperor was one of the first deities to help the Master Chief fight the Flood. During the conflict, He, the Master Chief, Madoka Kaname and (much to his great reluctance) Lucifer combined powers to banish the Primordial and ensure its imprisonment outside the Pantheon. He now stands alongside the Spartan as the first line of defense against the Parasite should it ever escape from its prison.
    • After the conflict, the Emperor made his thoughts on the Precursor very clear:
    These tentacle-fetish assholes are nothing if not the abominable embodiment of the complete and total assholery that an ancient species can lay claim to. The one-time ultimate rulers of reality and evolution, they were the shitty, neglectful grandparents of all that is life. Every living and non-living being in existence should let out a sigh of relief that these assholes were hunted down and killed by their much abused creations.
    • The danger of a Flood invasion of the Pantheon is great enough that he is even willing to join forces with the Chaos Gods to defeat it, as both sides agree that the Flood is a far greater threat than they are to each other.
  • The Emperor has low views of Social Darwinism, regarding it as a badly disguised Realpolitik underneath false science that has often been used as poor justification for cruel and inhumane actions. He is often found calling those who hold to this philosophy:
    Brutish asscracks with a survival-of-the-fittest mindset that think all "weaknesses" within the human species needs to be destroyed. Which would be all fine and dandy if that's what these fuckers were really doing, but usually they're too busy being pretentious pricks and trying to tear down everyone who's weaker than them, so they're actually accomplishing the opposite of what they claim to stand for.
    • He has come to conflict with En Sabah Nur and Charles zi Britannia over their philosophies and disregard for the lives and well-being of Humans.
  • Odin and the God Emperor of Mankind met one another after several correspondences through their sons. The two came to instantly respect one another from their mutual struggle against great enemies of their peoples. The determination to overcome seemingly impossible odds and unbeatable foes in order to preserve one's people was resound in both figures. Odin's ages old struggle against Ragnarok and strings of fate was well known to the Emperor while the King of Asgard learned about the Master of Mankind's millennia of warfare against the foul Gods of Chaos. The two forged a powerful alliance with one another. Much to their mutual amusement, they both possessed the title of Allfather.
  • May or may have not been a certain Cimmerian in a past life.
  • Despite maintaining a presence within the Pantheon, being the God of Humanity and worshiped as a God-Emperor by his many worshipers, the Emperor still holds many reservations about the title of God. Many would go as far as to say that referring to Him as a God is actually demeaning, since as a Human being, He is so much more. The Emperor prefers to be called The Man Emperor of Mankind.
  • As a proud proponent of HUMANITY FUCK YEAH, the Emperor wishes that Humanity would stop doing stupid shit such as worshiping obviously evil and malevolent entities (especially if they do so for the petty promises of power and fame), get their act together and finally achieve their birthright.
    • For this reason, Rem sees the Emperor as one of the few humans she can stand. He spends his time with her trying to see the potential humanity can achieve, but every time he gets close to convincing her, some human in the Pantheon does something stupid and evil, and they're back at step one.
    • This is also the reason he first began to take a look at the Elric brothers' journey, as one of their first landmark achievements as State Alchemists was to expose a false religion based around a sun god designed to convince the townspeople to get themselves murdered in a coup. Everything he saw after that proved them to be great champions of humanity's potential, to the point they even managed to impress The Truth, an entity whose entire design centered around punishing humans for thinking they could play God with transmutation knowledge. Needless to say, the Emperor approves.
    • He's also offered his full support to Philemon and Igor for their service in guiding the Persona-using human youths of the Pantheon into fighting back divine entities to protect humanity. Their most recent Wild Cards, Yu Narukami and Ren Amamiya, are particularly impressive, as Yu is proof that humans can seek and handle the truth even when it's uncomfortable or inconvenient to do so, while Ren is proof that humans can reject mundane nihilism and strive to achieve more in their lives than serving prisoner to corrupt systems.
      • As Nyarlathotep and Yaldabaoth are both proponents of humanity's hopelessness who refuse to let up even after being shown they're wrong, the Emperor considers them to be a danger akin to the Chaos Gods themselves. Once said Chaos Gods are finished being dealt with, they're next.
    • With Android 17 rising past his artificial programming from Dr. Gero's experiments to become the ultimate human, not only surviving near-elimination and self-destruction to win the Tournament of Power but also using his wish selflessly to restore the erased universes, the Emperor approves of the MVP chants 17 has gotten since his return from the planet-wide cruise he earned for himself and his family. The Emperor even had a trophy created to commemorate 17's victory and valor. The old doc can suck it.
  • Zamasu's plan to exterminate all mortals "for godly justice" makes the Emperor sick to his goddamn stomach. Aside from the fact that the brutal species he observed at two points a thousand years apart was closer to Xeno than human, Zamasu refused to understand the concept of the Kais serving as guides to humanity when it was taught to him. While he applauds Gowasu for trying his best to get through to the prick, Zamasu was hellbent on judging and destroying those he could've instead facilitated towards greatness. For the Emperor, This Is Unforgivable!.
    • He laughs at how blatantly the Tournament of Power proves not only just how dead wrong Zamasu was about how hopelessly destructive humans were, but also that Zeno, the childish Top God who eliminated Zamasu from his multiverse, knew he was wrong the entire time.
  • Despises fellow "Emperor" Frieza for trying to destroy his Earth at least twice and callously destroying countless lives, including wasting one Earth city with a single beam as a way to say hello. Upon hearing that he's found the sudden interest of helping other despotic Social Darwinists achieve rule over their Earths, the Emperor of Mankind is not mincing words.
    I want that motherfucker eliminated. And I. Want it. Now. Oh, and his fucking one-eyed blond friend can get rekt too.
  • He has a fondness for Duel Monsters, though he was a little disappointed that he couldn't use broken cards in the Pantheon. To compensate, he's constructed a deck based around powerful LIGHT monsters.
    • Despite their enmity, he hosts regular Duel Monster tournaments with Tzeentch.
  • He hates when people mention that one time he was being choked to death by, of all things, an Ork. Odin sympathizes with him for this; he is still getting shit for having been enslaved by space ants once.
  • Few alien species love humanity as much as the Doctor. So it is rather conflicting for him to side with its patron who thinks little of him or any other aliens. The Emperor hopes that the humans in that world will learn not to rely on the Time Lord's help all the damn time.
  • Is not a big fan of Zeno for being so childish with ultimate divine power. That Secret Test of Character with the Tournament of Power did impress him, though.
  • Has the absolute loyalty of Father Balder and Bayonetta after hearing of Balder's tale through Sanguinius and responding by raising the case to the Court of the Gods to have Rosa, Balder's wife and Bayonetta's mother, resurrected as her husband's herald.
    • Conversely, the Emperor lauded the demon Sparda as an honorable figure, and had called that he would reach the Pantheon well before he actually did. When asked why, he told his son about the legend of the Dark Knight from the other side of Balder's world who woke up to justice and singlehandedly sealed his demon brethren to stop them from enslaving all of humanity. Sanguinius and other human-proponent angels would welcome Sparda openly to the Pantheon.
  • With so many threats both within and outside of humanity, the Emperor of Mankind has decided that a new order needs to be created to protect humanity, with himself in the helm. For this, he has founded the Order of Humanity to serve the interests of mankind as a whole.

The Iron Giant, God of Those Who Don't Want To Be Used As Weapons
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c18a0b57_184b_4b6a_b614_ca0b7ddcaa50.png
  • Greater God (jumps into Overdeity should you really piss him off)
  • Theme: "No Following"; alternatively, "I Won't Run Anymore" by Pete Townshend
  • Symbol: The giant himself adorned with a giant S on his chest.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (becomes Chaotic Good if pissed off)
  • Portfolio: Gentle Giant who becomes ABSOLUTELY PISSED OFF if you push him too far, beautiful moments of death to sacrifice himself (yet still heartwrenching), Giant Robot, able to withstand explosions, guns and missiles without a scratch on him, repairing himself by bringing his parts together, Wielding an Arm Cannon, Chest Blaster, and other types of weapons, REALLY REALLY hating guns and insisting that he isn't one (Trope Namer)
  • Domains: Robots, Mechas, Peace, Heroism
  • Herald: Hogarth Hughes
  • Allies: All superhero gods in the Pantheon (particularly Superman) and all gods in the GUAG, Groot, Roboking, SCP-516
  • Commonality Connection: The Incredibles and Remy (They share the same creator)
  • Enemies: Gods in the House of War, Hatred, and Villains, and villainous gods who use guns.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Good-aligned gods who use guns, Yugi Muto and Yami Yugi (He's still angry over the Asylum Incident)
  • No one knows anything about the Iron Giant except he fell into Earth one day, originally sent to destroy it. Somehow, he gained amnesia and went on to befriend a young boy named Hogarth Hughes. Through Hogarth, the giant learned about life and the idea that he could become his own being which came in handy when he offered himself up to destroy a nuclear missile that would've destroyed Hogarth's hometown, all while stating "Superman..." with a smile on his face. Thankfully, his repair system made it so that he would be easily heal and he quickly found himself in the Pantheon with Hogarth as his herald.
  • Was...absolutely overjoyed to find Superman, as the Man of Steel's name was the last thing the Giant said before he sacrificed himself to a missile (to the cries of many soft-hearted gods). Superman sees the goodness in the Giant's heart and tells the giant of his tales, absolutely amazed how the Giant could embody the Man of Steel's virtues.
    • The Giant also was interested to meet Superman's parents both birth and adoptive. Jonathan and Martha Kent weren't surprised to see him (they've used to this) and Jor-El was amazed to find how his son gave inspiration.
  • 'Does not like guns. He hates them. Absolutely hates them. The sight of a toy gun accidentally triggers his defense mechanisms. Avoids the House of Weapons and War for this very reason and many gods know to hide their guns whenever the Iron Giant is around else having to face his entire armory of weapons. Even Trollkaiger knows that using his hatred of guns is going to bite them in the ass.
  • The Giant once learned of a dark and foreboding threat called "Project: Alternate Gentaro" and after learning what happened, he wishes to help. Not by killing him (which would be even WORSE than what's going on) but by telling Alternate!Gentaro that he can choose to be whatever he wanted. Many gods really don't want the giant to get involved like that, due to the fact that aside from a humongous giant rampaging across the Pantheon, it will just reduce many into tears cause they just know that the Giant's words won't reach Gentaro's ears. Unfortunately, those plans got derailed by an accidental shot from Mitsuzane Kureshima's Grape Lockseed hitting him, causing him to go ballistic, and by the time he calmed down, he was incinerated by the Winged Dragon of Ra. Many gods mourned his loss.
    • Because of this, both Yugi and Yami Yugi had to apologize up and down for the Egyptian God Cards going on a rampage. The Iron Giant has learned to forgive them but many gods worry what would've happened if the two really got on his bad side...
  • Gets along well with the Incredibles and Remy (the rat), because of them all sharing a similar creator. The Giant has also gotten along with various Pixar gods because of this. Wall-E and EVE dance with him, and have taught him about the magic of "Hello Dolly!" However, the last time the Giant danced to "Put on Your Sunday Clothes", he nearly destroyed half of the Pantheon from stomping around.
  • The Iron Giant once met with Groot, and was surprised at how they sound alike. The two have conversations, but not a lot of Gods know what they talk about due to the Giant's limited vocabulary and Groot only able to say "I am Groot." Fortunately, Rocket Raccoon acts as a translator.
    • Has also become acquainted with Dominic Toretto although Dominic has warned the Giant time and time again not to use his cars for artwork. Dominic also denies crying upon hearing the Iron Giant's sacrifice.
  • Was actually very surprised, yet happy to find a fellow robotic giant companion within Roboking, seeing him as another robotic titan that can be just as friendly without the threat of any weaponry on his body. While he can also be weaponized, it's usually in self-defense (like the Iron Giant usually does), or when he's possessed or hacked into. He is the second deity to be called onto the scene (besides the King of All Cosmos himself) to take care of Roboking when he gets corrupted. Not that Roboking minds, especially as he was built to come back after death.
    • SCP-516 is another peaceful robot (albeit a tank) that he's gotten along with quite well, especially upon learning that its dream is to rest in a peaceful field of flowers.
    • Many gods are wondering if he would become friends with fellow amnesiac robot Bastion. However, Bastion's hatred of guns would trigger its PTSD and since the Giant carries a humongous assortment of weapons on hand, many are sure that this will only end in tragedy.
  • Was interested in Golurk and has taught the Pokémon some of the philosophy he learned during his time on Earth. Golurk is awe-inspired by the Iron Giant's idealism and is hoping to train with him more.
  • "Superman..."

    Amon (The Legend of Korra
Amon, Ruler of the Divine Anti-Magical Faction (The Solution, Noatak)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amon_8.png
Noatak 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Equalist symbol
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (views himself as Lawful Good)
  • Portfolio: Muggle Power, Villain with Good Publicity, Breaking Speeches, Terrorism for a Cause, He Has a Plan, Becoming More Oppressive Than His Enemies, Genius Bruiser, Visionary Villain, Pragmatism, Creepy Monotone, Using Jerks as His First Victims, Boomerang Bigot, Tragic Bigot
  • Domains: Equality, Non-Magic, Society, Hypocrisy (Though apparently aware of it)
  • Followers: The Huntsclan
  • Allies: Anti-Mage, Syndrome
  • Enemies: Avatar Korra, Asami Sato, Tenzin, Lin Beifong, Katara, Appa, Momo, Naga and Pabu, Touta Konoe, Greed, Twilight Sparkle, Starlight Glimmer, all Benders in the Pantheon, the entire House of Magic
  • Respected Enemies: Avatar Aang, Dr. Light, Dr. Wily
  • Opposes: Ghetsis Harmonia, Orihime Inoue, The Dragon Balls, Fairy Leviathan, Mega Man, X, Zero
  • Opposed by: The Wonderful 100
  • Feared by: Bender
  • It was originally Ghetsis who stuck his neck out for Amon to ensure that the latter ascended. Ghetsis noticed similarities in his goals and Amon's goals, especially after learning that Amon was secretly a waterbender. He had assumed that Amon had ulterior motives much like himself.
    • This was not the case, as Ghetsis found out. Amon sincerely believes his own rhetoric, which bored Ghetsis. Ghetsis also reminded Amon very much of his own, horribly abusive father. The two now have a bitter hatred for one another.
  • Amon, seeing life in the Pantheon as a second chance, has decided to hold off on the "equalizing" for the time being. At least, until the opportune moment — he'd still like to just de-bend every single bender in the Pantheon, as his belief in his own rhetoric that bending is the root of the world's problems has not rested. By extension, practitioners of magic in other worlds are just as bad.
    • Unfortunately for him, the presence of multiple Avatars in the Pantheon makes his de-bending a moot point, as do certain powers from the likes of Orihime Inoue and the Dragon Balls, all of which can restore bending. The Avatars have also amassed a few allies from other worlds that are ready to stand against him as well.
    • He holds a special distaste for Avatar Korra, but has a strange reverence for Avatar Aang, seeing as he can also remove bending, specifically from Amon's own father. Despite his hatred for Korra, he sent a transmission to his Equalist remnants approving of her and Asami's relationship.
  • Amon has tried to tell others his story of being a simple Farm Boy who was scarred by a firebender, but too many of the gods are already aware of his true nature. It did not help that Korra helped get the word out to the other gods prior to Amon's ascension.
  • Due to similar objectives, Amon and Anti-Mage have decided to work together. Though it is unknown if Anti-Mage is aware that Amon is a bender.
  • Is now feared by Bender due to a misunderstanding.
  • Amon is sometimes asked if he has any hobbies that don't relate to his agenda. He's mentioned trying his hand at comedy on different occasions.
  • The Wonderful 100 find that Amon reminds them of Jergingha (it's the voice). Upon learning what he's done, Amon has been made an enemy of the CENTINELS.
  • Is rumored by Varrick to be a zombie, as part of an advertising stunt for one of his latest movers. Amon ignores this.
  • While Twilight Sparkle is naturally Amon's enemy as she's (used to be but the point still stands) in the House of Magic, the rest of the Mane Six don't like him either, as his ideals and hypocrisy remind them too much of Starlight Glimmer. It probably doesn't help that both of them had rather tragic reasons for becoming who they are, and Starlight is now on the path of redemption while Amon, despite having a worse past than her, simply escaped with his brother Tarrlok, who decided to do the redemption by blowing up their mortal selves. Starlight herself has also voiced her disapproval of Amon, to which he retorted that unlike her, he's faithful to his cause of equality to the end. While Starlight agrees that may be true, she now sees that they were both ultimately wrong in their actions.
  • Has joined forces with his former follower, Syndrome.
  • Since Fairy Leviathan's ascension he's become offended with her habit of challenging Korra and Katara to underwater contest battles. He's also not a fan of Mega Man, X, or Zero for all being androids who can grow their powers in ways that harness the elements similar to benders, making them akin to manufactured pseudo-Avatars. He is impressed at Dr. Light and Dr. Wily for being normal humans capable of creating such beings, but otherwise dislikes the fact that they basically started their world's mess.

    Jinbei 
Jinbei, God of Pacifism Backfire (Kaikyō, Knight of the Sea, Yakuza of the Sea, First Son of the Sea, Boss Jinbe)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jinbei_0.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The symbol of the Sun Pirates
  • Theme Song: A Man's Battle
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good with leanings of Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Regretting earlier mercy, Whale shark Fishman, Badass helmsman, Fishman Karate, Fishman Jujutsu, Fast for a big fellow, heavily dependable, speaks with whale sharks, Gentle Giant, A Father to His Men, Good Is Not Dumb, Only friendly and upstanding Warlord,
  • Domains: Responsability, Merfolk, Martial Arts, Equality
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Fleet Admiral "Akainu" Sakazuki, Blackbeard, William Stryker, Mard Geer Tartaros, Deep Sea King, Davy Jones, Tidehunter, The Slavers, Black Manta
  • Respects: Jack Sparrow
  • Rivals: Namor, Kisame Hoshikage
  • From the deep blue shores of the beaches of the Pantheon, signs were heard that some great blue oni was arriving from the depths. Suddenly, the water glided out like a serpent and a large fish-man appeared. Introducing himself as Jinbei, he said he was brought here looking for Strawhat Luffy. Luffy swung by and he happily greeted Jinbei along with the rest of the crew. Their newest member finally made it on board.
  • Pacifism is an ideal many strive to do, but sometimes Violence Really Is the Answer. On the one hand, it is hard to see Jinbei as a true pacifist given he is a powerful pirate, one of the most formidable of the former Sun Pirates. However, during the break-up of the Sun Pirates, he spared a former comrade after beating him due to their past history. However, who was said comrade? None other than Arlong, who go on to leave the Grand Line with the Fishman Pirates and terrorize Cocoyashi Village before his crew's defeat at the hands of Strawhat Luffy and his crew. Needless to say, Jinbei did not take this well learning what his decision indirectly led up to. Despite this, Nami has easily forgiven him and he fought alongside the crew to where he was invited to the Strawhats, a role he eventually accepted, becomign the helmsman of the Thousand Sunny.
  • Jinbei quickly became familiar with the various strange aspects of the Pantheon. This included a joyous reunion with Ace and Whitebeard along with a more cordial meeting with Trafalgar and Hancock. At the same time, he was not happy to see that many of their foes had come here, none other than Akainu and Blackbeard. Much like his new crew, he stands to fight against them for his dream. What is his dream? None other than one day for fishmen and merfolk to join with all the other races in harmony.
  • Many have asked about his changing titles. He explains that, much like many other aspects in One Piece, it is a matter of wordplay in the Japanese language. His epithet, Kaikyō, would normally translate into "Strait" or "Channel". However since the kanji for it is written as (海侠) and not (海峡), the kyō part (侠) of it comes from (任侠), an honorific used when addressing a high ranking yakuza member. However, given how there is no formal translation, it's been interpreted in various ways, with "Knight of the Sea" being the official epithet granted.
  • Jinbei quickly gained respect and awe for his absolute mastery of Fishman Karate along with his immense skill in Fishman Jujitsu. So much so that he was invited to participate in the House of Martial Arts. He has been looking for some promising students and he is pleasantly surprised to see there are others like him.
  • One who has considered learning under him was Katara, at least in her younger incarnation, given how Fishman Karate can be learned by humans. Both were impressed by the others' capabilities and different styles in using water in their martial arts. Another considerable student he considered is Percy Jackson and he was quite impressed by the heroic journey of the young demigod while Percy saw he could probably learn some more fighting from someone like Jinbei.
  • A somewhat more violent encounter was between Jinbei and Undyne. The idea of a fellow fishfolk fighter joining the Pantheon seemed utterly fun for her and while Jinbei was initially turned off due to how he heard her views on humanity, he did gain a better understanding in fighting her and how she moved in from that. Undyne in turn thinks of Jinbei as an awesome fighter and even compared him to being as noble as her king, Asgore.
  • Jinbe also enjoys visiting the various water-themed Houses of the Pantheon and he was happy to meet many heroic people who call the sea home. Aquaman was first and foremost, with Jinbei being amazed on how merfolk could become so human-like in appearance while Aquaman was happy to meet such an honorable man. The two spar frequently and Aquaman has been getting more capable in learning Fishman Karate to a same level.
  • However, perhaps who Jinbei befriended the fastest was Rikuo. It is a bit of an Odd Friendship considering one is a pirate and the other a noble, but both of them have a deep respect and friendship for one another as they are good honorable men. Rikuo also appreciates how fatherly Jinbei is with his younger companions, especially on how he was there in Luffy's time of need. He is Jinbei's most frequent sparring partner.
  • Another person he befriended of the sea was Slithice, a siren. He enjoyed her company though he couldn't help but feel sorrow on learning of her exile from her home because of the loss of a single chalice. He empathized with her and offered to assist her. Many gods have noted that the two have been spending plenty of time together and Slithice being happier than she has been for a while.
    • Jinbei's crew, the Straw Hat Pirates, send their own support to her and all of em (especially Luffy), were horrified on how she was cast aside. When she tried to explain the matter of honor, Luffy responded with his own powerful statement:
    Luffy: There's no honor in abandoning your nakama.
  • He also taken to protecting the merfolk who were not able to protect themselves or don't prefer fighting. He has become something of a guardian figure for the Sea Angels and he has befriended Ariel. She reminds him a little of Shirahoshi and hearing her love story with Prince Eric along with her dealing with motherhood gave him further hope on his dream. They in term admire his nobility and courage, even if he has to do so on his own path.
  • Through Luffy, Jinbei would be all sorts of various new allies and one of them was a pirate and archaeologist Edward Kenway. A former privateer turned pirate, Jinbei was impressed by his good heart and his dedication sto studying and redemption. Edward meanwhile, once getting over the shock, happily conversed with the Fishman. He was quite fascinated with the underwater civilization he hailed from, and the long lost secrets, including that of Joy Boy.
  • Speaking of, perhaps no other merfolk interested him than Morgl the Oracle. While even he has some trouble understanding the Oracle, the two are on fairly good terms. Beyond commonality of the sea, there was a note in that like Morgl, Jinbei was also fairly unexpected in demeanor. As was noted, few expected Arlong's former commander to be such a compassionate and outstanding fellow, much less be a Warlord or go on to join the Straw Hat Pirates.
  • Being a pirate, he was introduced to none other than Jack Sparrow, being the god of pirates here. While their first reunion was unorthodox given how Jack is... Jack, he did provide a good deal of information to Jinbei. Captain Sparrow left an odd impression on Jinbei. He called him an honest man and noted how dangerous that made him. However, Jinbei did gain a good sense of respect on hearing how Jack would be branded a pirate for his refusal to engage in delivering slaves and even freeing them. And to Jack, the fishmen and merfolk count as people.
    Captain Jack Sparrow: People aren't cargo, mate.
  • Of course, not everyone took well to him ascending and it was unsurprising that Akainu had issued a warrant for his capture with Jinbei had been having ready to fight alongside his crew for when confrontation may occur. The same went with Blackbeard. After all, the man had led to the death of Ace and Whitebeard and the man's different faces meant more targets for Jinbei to fight.
  • He would also make plenty of new enemies here. One of which being the Sea King. After the latter's failures of getting Jinbei to bow to him and hearing of his invasion of the surface, Jinbei and him began brawling. While initially sparring on land, Jinbei's Fishman Karate allowed him to begin forcing the water out of the Sea King's body, and thus, the Deep Sea King took them to the water. He became a much tougher opponent, but Jinbei remained in his element as he could fully utilize his martial arts underwater and in addition, possessed Haki to begin damaging the Sea King. It was an intense brutal fight as Jinbei began wearing down the Deep Sea King thanks to his attacks overcoming the Sea King's regenerative abilities. However, he won the fight through intelligence, namely exploiting the Deep Sea King's acid attack by using Fishman Jujitsu to send it back at him.
  • Another was the infamous Davy Jones, who Jack had warned him about. To Jinbei, he saw Davy Jones as just a blight on the sea while the latter saw Jinbei as a threat to him and his allies. Jinbei did now how disturbing Davy Jones looked and felt pity on how monstrous the man had become.
  • Yet another unfriendly fish face that Jinbei needed to face was Tidehunter. Not even Jinbei could understand the strange motivations outside of vengeance that guided Tidehunter, but from what he understood, he was another troublemaker who attacked innocents, though his reasons were... incomprehensible.
  • Given his dreams of reaching equality, he didn't take too well to those who preached the superiority of one race over another, especially to harm them. Unsurprisingly, William Stryker and Mard Geer Tartaros ended up on his bad list. The former feared and loathed him (which earned Stryker the enmity of the Straw Hat Pirates) while Mard Geer ended up fighting Jinbei. It was a strog fight as Jinbei's Haki and martial arts allowed him mess with Mard Geer's Curses though he would ultimately began getting the upper hand before the Straw Hats intervened, with Mard Geer retreating since he knew they would attract more reinforcements.
  • However, no other enemy that Jinbei despises than those of The Slavers and joined the large group of people who detest him. His ascension marked alot of trouble for them, especially when reinforced by the Straw Hats.
  • His new allies of course bring their own fair share of threats. One of which being none other than Aquaman's own arch-enemy, Black Manta. Representing the cold-hearted and cutthroat reality of piracy, he unsurprisingly stood against Black Manta. He was disgusted at how he bragged on killing Aquaman's son, which earned a powerful blow from Jinbei. When Black Manta tried to justify his own actions, Jinbei shot his arguments down and followed with another attack:
    Jinbei: Your loss and pain of your people doesn't justify anything! You are devoid of all but spite.
  • Another individual that Jinbei has come into conflict as a result of his alliance with Aquaman was Namor. Another ruler of the sea, Jinbei would end up in a clash against the king to the arrogance and temper of Namor. Jinbei for the most part was unsure what to make of Namor. He could understand his defensiveness, but he also balked at how inhospitable he could be with his allies though he also noted his name was reminscent of one of Whitebeard's men.
  • Jinbei discovered he was not the only shark-looking fellow on the Pantheon when he ran into Kisame Hoshikage. Like Namor, their opposing viewpoints led to them fighting one another. Kisame seem to enjoy such a powerful opponent who could push him to fuse with Samehada, though Jinbei's mastery of Fishman Karate meant he could manipulate all of his water jutsu away while also using Haki to deal with Samehada, resulting in a victory in Jinbei's favor. Jinbei for the most part has mixed views on the violent shinobi. Kisame's nihilistic views were vaguely similar to that of Hody Jones yet he respected the honor that Kisame did possess and was not against further sparring sessions.
  • Much like the rest of the Strawhats, he has his various likes and dislikes revealed, albeit more when he was part of the Shichibukai. Matters such as Jinbe's favorite foods being vinegared mozuku seaweed and fruits.

    Mila and Duma

  • Symbol: The Brand of Mila and the Brand of Duma
  • Theme Song: Revelations and The Fell God’s Tempest
  • Alignment: True Neutral (Mila), Lawful Neutral (Duma). Both would have become degenerated into Neutral Evil and Lawful Evil respectively.
  • Portfolio: Believing Themselves To Be Real Deities, Hailing From The Divine Dragon Tribe, Exiled By Naga, Suffering From Degeneration, Siblings Who Ultimately Care For Each Other, Splitting Valentia In Twain, Dying With Their Sanity Restored

  • Respects: Alm and Celica, Marth, Chrom, Lucina, Robin, Corrin
  • There were two gods named Mila and Duma, both originating from the Divine Dragon tribe. Once holding powerful positions, they were casted out for impudence against Naga and went off to the continent of Valencia. In Valencia, they were eventually worshipped as patron deities. Both had different ideologies they stood for, Mila just wanted to have her followers be at peacefully living their lives at peace with the bounties she’s given them while Duma wanted to raise hardened warriors who’d get what they worked for. Both dragons clashed with each other because of these polar opposite philosophies, leading to them just deciding that it would better off to establish their own nations and leave each other alone. These nations became Zofia who venerated Mila and Rigel who worshipped Duma.
    • Turns out their own teachings and followers would be their own undoing. The people of Zofia became lazy and arrogant while the people of Rigel had became cold and cruel. Over the next centuries, Mila and Duma would start succumbing to the madness that their kind suffered if they had lived too long, which was accelerated by their own worshippers’ bad influence. Duma was the one far worst off, attempting to have his nation invade Zofia while Mila was sealed away the Rigelian Emperor before she could do anything drastic.
    • Long story short, Alm and Celica came into the picture and managed to slay Duma and his extremist followers who were the true reasons why the nations went to war. Both dragons managed to ascend together to the Pantheon with a title that led to their downfall. Fortunately, their sanities were restored and they have not waged war with each other... yet.
  • Despite sharing the same temple, Mila and Duma would like to keep their personal space despite making peace with one another over everything that had happened. Apparently both Mila and Duma still can’t stand how each other’s lifestyle is like. Due to their worship being merged now, they can’t exactly segregate their followers without the risk of another faction war, so they just decided to split the place in half.
  • Finally met the ones who ended them. Alm and Celica almost had heart attacks before Mila and Duma straight up apologized to them for all the trouble they caused in their conflict and are quite impressed on how they were able to keep Valencia at peace for a long while. Both parties don’t speak to each other often due to wanting fresh new starts but are willing to help each other if the need arises.
  • A fellow member of the Divine Dragon tribe had managed to end up meeting in the Pantheon was Tiki, who was surprised that fellow Divine Dragons ascended as well. What caught Mila and Duma off guard was that she was the daughter of Naga, their former leader. Out of obligation, they act like her retainers wherever she goes. Tiki, while humbled, had to threaten to off herself for them to back off.
  • Unknown to both of them, across the next continent a dangerous experiment had been taking place. That experiment eventually became Grima. They were horrified upon learning what Grima was and regretted that they were never made aware of thos threat, having the capacity to end Grima at an early stage. Stands by with the Shepherds to destroy Grima once and for all.
  • Their remains became a tree and a volcano respectively. Tiki actually made her home in Mila’s tree while Duma... is a volcano. He doesn’t appreciate on how he’s been reduced to an inhospitable wasteland where Mila has become essentially sacred ground.
  • Have met up with the wise dragon Paarthurnax who they think will help them become better people like he has. Lucky for them, Paarthurnax is all up for helping them go through their inner turmoil.
  • Each found two different royal families from the Outrealms that appeal to their different ideologies. The Hoshidan family represent the eternal happiness in peace Mila strives for as Nohr’s royal family show the discipline and effort Duma made his people strive for. However, both have respect for Corrin who managed to bring peace to the feuding kingdoms.
    • Also have a similar relationship with Nanoha and Fate, thanks to their parenting methods on their raising their kid differentiating. Both dragons basically act as one of those parent groups who root for the parenting skills of the person they’re friends with. This is not the weirdest thing to happen in the Pantheon, we swear.
  • The entire deal with Westeros have struck a cord with both of them. They see it much like how their kingdoms waged ware, this time on a more grander scale thanks to all the conspiracies rolling around. Are friends with the original reigning Targargyens despite how disgusted there are with the incest stuff. Both agree that Aerys Targargyen is an absolute piece of crap who caused misery for everyone.
    • Mila could see where Dany is coming from, with her original goal after becoming a ruler to just to lay back and not deal with all the issues that eventually will plague her. Even if Daenerys eventually went off the deep end, Mila still vouches for her.
    • Duma do wish for Stannis to take the throne, as he is by default the legitimate heir. Also believes he could effectively whip Westoros to shape if he had won. Abhors the Royal Brat named Joffrey and has no qualms squishing that boy into paste. Also dislikes Robert Baratheon for being what he sees incompetent ruler who managed to shave conspirers seep into his ranks once he Stopped Caring.
  • As bad as their relationship to evil dragons like Smaug and Alduin are, they are rather floored by how much Miraak despises dragonkind to an insane degree. They aren’t going to say every dragon is the nicest out there, not even themselves but Miraak basically is calling for their entire genocide at this point so they have no choice but to wage war with him to protect members of the Divine Dragon tribe from reaching his grasp.
  • It seems they have caught the attention of the Divine Power who offered them to join their ranks to reclaim their divine statuses. With how everything’s been said before, you can expect Mila and Duma weren’t having that. Both lambasted the entire point of the Divine Powers, despite being overthrown by a being so terrible, the Divine Powers are essentially trying to do just as worst of an intention by trying to rule over their worshippers as well.
  • Exclusive to Mila:
    • Has a bit of an Odd Friendship with the Master of Disguise, Robbie Rotten who wants everybody to become peacefully at their homes, doing nothing and free from the stresses of life. Mila gave her approval despite not taking any action herself and wants Robbie to disassemble the communist state known as Lazytown.
    • Does not think that Yaldabaoth’s and Zelenin’s idea of controlling the minds of the population is a method they would use to ensure peace, effectiveness be damned. It’s no surprise that a being who’s entire existence was created for that and a person who is a firm believer of such a plan would be her enemy.
    • Acts much like a mother to her followers, so Mila expected that two Tiamats and Innana would love and care for their children much like her. They don’t. The goddess Tiamat and Innana are insane and only wish to repeatedly create demon from themselves instead of caring for them and the Beast Tiamat is somehow worse, wanting to essentially unbirth existence itself. Mila counts herself lucky she didn’t devolve into a similar attitude.
  • Exclusive to Duma:

  • One of two Half-Human Hybrid twin sons of the legendary Ascended Demon Sparda and a human named Eva who may have in fact been a powerful witch, Vergil's family life was torn asunder when demons killed his mother in an attack on their home shortly after his father disappeared. Out of a desire to overcome the helplessness he felt in that situation and Never Be Hurt Again, Vergil sought to become the strongest being in his world, surpassing even the legacy of Sparda himself. While maintaining a code of honor, he eschewed his humanity and embraced demonic power. This would create problems. No, seriously.
  • On his deification, in which he had ascended as he was before he became Nelo Angelo due to 'being sucked into a world unknown with tons of worthy opponents to go', he had a rematch with Mundus, who had defeated and enslaved him. Vergil won this time. By a large margin. Revenge never felt so sweet to him.
    • He also doesn't like those who would underrate such a victory over the Demon Emperor like Jean Grey/Phoenix, which Vergil sees as a wonderful source of darkness that should be tapped into rather than kept prisoner in her body.
  • Is rumored that he could take on one of Scar's seats, the Evil Brother one in particular. Whether Vergil will go on to pursue that goal remains to be seen, however when last asked about it he seemed content with training himself further. Some believe he'll ultimately pass since he neither cares about being called evil nor hates his brother, but much like how he tried to kill Dante for his piece of their mother's amulet, if the seat can provide more power he might make an attempt on it. For now, though, he and the erstwhile Groundshaker get along decently.
  • He gets annoyed when Dr. Tommy Oliver constantly mistakes him for a Power Ranger. Well, a certain Ranger sounded similar...
  • Unlike Dante, who somewhat respects his alternate counterpart (Donte, "the emo one", or Tim as Dante calls him), Vergil holds absolutely nothing but contempt for his (Vergin, "the weakling", though Dante calls him David). Not just on the usage of guns, which he finds crude as it is, but also the shooting of the demon mother's womb and the deception of the emo one and Kat, actions which he condemned as dishonorable. This hatred was further compounded when the weakling went out and gloated to his mother's spirit that (he genuinely believed) he killed the emo one, before leaving her to stew in her newfound misery for eternity. For all his demon supremacy, Vergil still loved his mother as much as Dante, and this act put the weakling at the top of his to-kill list.
    • Though like his brother, Vergil respects the alternate Dante for his will to rise up against his own Vergil to defend his world's humanity against a version of himself he considers to have crossed an important line.
    • Ironically, his time split into the enigmatic human V and Demon King Urizen (more on that below) allowed him to get a fresh look at his own lust for power and realize that if he completely cast aside his humanity for the sake of power, he would be no less craven or loathsome than his counterpart. He now refers to his counterpart as Urizen to serve as a reminder, and sometimes calls Dante's alternate Orc, after Urizen's counterpart in the William Blake books (though he still usually defers to Dante's nickname of Tim for the emo one, and in turn, Dante has begun deferring to the Urizen reference for the weakling).
  • Despite often opposing Dante due to competing goals and philosophiesnote , he will enter a truce and even fight alongside his brother whenever a proper reason comes up without having to be told to do so. This was first seen when they fought together to stop a treacherous demon named Arkham upon discovering said traitor's plot. It's often cited as proof that he doesn't really hate Dante, but he doesn't care to clarify one way or the other.
    • Also despite their differences, he is just as strong as his brother. Each has held the upper hand on the other numerous times in battle.
    • Turns out he does... or, more accurately, did resent Dante for a time, believing that his mother had rescued Dante while leaving him to die when the demons assaulted their home. He later learned the truth, that Eva went to look for him immediately after securing Dante but was killed before she could find him.
  • Nowadays the brothers' reason for working together is because of Kat, the young witch who befriended their alternate counterparts only to be betrayed by the weakling. While not sharing Dante's sentimental sympathy, Vergil wants Kat to associate his name with a man of honor and true power as opposed to the duplicitous traitor who used her to rule, as well as to become stronger herself. He also calls her by the full Katherine instead of just Kat like everyone else including his Nephilim counterpart.
  • Contrary to popular rumor, the name of Sparda has never actually been Vergil's last name. He and Dante just allow others to use it as such as a nod to their father and as a way to separate them from the Comedìa poets Sparda named them each after.
    • Dante's namesake actually visited his temple thinking he would find Vergillus Maro. Displeased with the disruption, Vergil ended up fighting with Alighieri until his brother suddenly intervened to break up the skirmish. As his brother led Alighieri away from his grounds, Vergil gave no protest, simply glad the issue was over with for the time being.
    • A long time later, after finally growing past seeking to eclipse Sparda's power through realizing the lessons that his father had learned before him, Vergil realized that neither the hero Static Shock, the only other deity who shared his name, nor anyone else with reasonable potential to join them, had it spelled the same way as him. With this, he finally dropped the Sparda name from his temple, with the door now simply reading his own true name: Vergil. This doesn't stop others from continuing to reference him as a Sparda.
  • Once fought Guts in a battle to the death. However, this was cut short by demons, forcing them to team up. But he will be back to challenge Guts one day.
  • Holds a bit of respect for Jin Kisaragi due to the many similarities between them (both of them practice Iaijutsu). Though likewise, he sees Hakumen as a Worthy Opponent, but Hakumen does not approve of Vergil's lust for power, and also hates him because he reminds Hakumen of his past self somewhat. He also respects Sasuke Uchiha for some reason; The latter in return having no opinion of Vergil. He also has some respect for Itachi Uchiha for his supreme ninjutsu skills.
  • Is a bit surprised that he and Jetstream Sam have the same voice base.
  • His beatdown of Noel has made him a target of Raiden, whose sword skills Vergil wishes to taste.
  • Despite being an aloof douchebag, he somewhat sympathizes with Jin Kazama due to the similar fate of their mothers.
  • He once made a visit to the House of Power to test the whole house's might and faced Darius. From there, Vergil learned about the Noxus Empire and its philosophies. Vergil is actually impressed enough to honor Darius as one of his allies.
    Vergil: You have impressed the Son of Sparda, you should be honored...
    • On the other hand, just like one of his followers from Freljord (Sejuani), Vergil shows contempt on Ashe in her quest for peace and foregoing strength. While he wouldn't go as far as doing barbaric raids to show off strength, Vergil says that Ashe is extremely naive and will suffer a weakling's death if she continues the path.
  • Has gained another rival in Sephiroth. They met in a grassy field at night and clashed for a single minute. Vergil came out on top, but Sephiroth has promised they'll meet again. As a matter of fact, Wiz and Boomstick have scheduled a Death Battle between the two.
    • And when that battle came and went... let's just say Vergil's rivalry became stronger than ever given that he lost.
  • Aside from the widespread speculation that he fathered Nero during his stay in Fortuna, there are some who think Jeanne, another one of his many rivals, is, in fact, their mother. He humors the idea, saying that it would make sense since one who can summon and harness the power of demons would be an exception to his contempt for the weakness of humans but claims he didn't note anything special about any woman he might've met in that city.
    • Despite his dismissal of the idea, he can occasionally be seen watching over Nero. Seems he's at least curious to know whether this boy is, in fact, his son. The same can't be said for Jeanne, as he still mainly meets the Umbra witch through katana fights.
  • On a related note, he holds a severe dislike for Father Balder in his current state, despite noting the inconsistencies in the history he's researched which call into question how Balder became who he is today. Part of it is due to the Lumen Sage's unbecoming alliance with Mundus, but it seems to have more to do with Vergil's cursory knowledge of Paradiso:
    • His annoyance was palpable when Jubileus was finally ascended to the Pantheon alongside Queen Sheba. He doesn't like either one at all, but at least the latter doesn't pretend to be something noble. Later on, Balder was freed from the influence of Loptr as Aesir was revealed through a long battle involving Bayonetta and a legion of her friends including Dante's Devil May Cry partners. While acknowledging this fact, Vergil doesn't particularly care.
  • One need not twist Vergil into agreeing with Dante about Alex Wesker. Not just on the fact that she similar to Nevan, but also the little detail of her being completely insane.
  • Was recruited by the recently ascended Führer Bradley to join his new High Command forces in service of the Homunculus Father. After a brief sword-fight, Bradley offered him the chance to learn secrets of power from Father and his herald, an old woman named Dante. However, he was strung along on the matter until after Bradley and the Homunculi called a meeting to tell the team about an attack from Satsuki Kiryuin and her friends, at which point he swiftly decided to approach Father and Lady Dante for their tutelage. However, he found the Philosopher's Stone too crude a method of obtaining power and learned all the alchemy he could in a week before abruptly quitting the team. Bradley tried to stop him, but Kat helped him subdue the Fuhrer long enough to escape.
    • He's currently preparing for that team's eventual assault, as well as allowing Kat to study from his memories of what Lady Dante managed to teach him. With Dante herself being ascended in her last form, a younger body belonging to someone called Lyra, this has become even more imperative.
  • Upon discovering that the ultra-powerful alien contestant in the Dragon Ball multiverse's Tournament of Power shares a similar backstory and motivations as he does, Vergil quickly motioned to have Jiren inducted as his High Priest, and Jiren nonchalantly agreed to this. Both men have ulterior motives for this agreement, but given their common background, neither has any problem with it: Vergil is trying to use him to gain secrets to getting stronger, while Jiren is looking to ascend into the Pantheon proper.
    • This relationship has earned him the antipathy of Androids 17 and 18, given that 17 literally detonated himself, which was thought to have taken his life, to give Son Goku a fighting chance to stop the Grey Superman, and this "strength is the only thing that matters" mindset is something the twins each heavily dislike.
    • Vergil accepted Jiren despite the Tournament having finally beaten the absoluteness of his strength-is-all mentality out of him, reasoning that the mindset still helped Jiren become as strong as he is and Jiren's strength is what Vergil values most. After Jiren finally ascended to the Pantheon, the two remain on good terms, maintaining respect for one another while amicably going their separate ways.
  • Reports of a demonic outbreak in Red Grave City have led to rampant speculation that Vergil may be somehow connected, either through a man named "V" who has been spotted working with Dante and Nero or through a mysterious hooded figure who ripped Nero's Devil Bringer off. While these currently remain merely unsubstantiated rumors, everyone knows one thing: something big is going down.
    • Turns out the connection is he is both of them. Desperate for power to heal himself and finally settle his grudge with Dante after a certain incident left him physically broken, he ripped away Nero's Devil Bringer and then cast his human and demon halves apart using the Yamato in hopes of healing himself with more demonic power. The pure demon took despotic measures to become "power incarnate" and ultimately replace Mundus as the King of Hell, while the human kept the injuries and went to Dante for help to stop him. The human even came up with both names, calling himself "V" and the demon "Urizen". By the end of it, Urizen was defeated and V recombined into him, restoring Vergil whole and stronger than ever. Vergil once again tried for a fight to the death with Dante, almost as if to atone for his crimes, during which he was finally confronted with the confirmed truth of Nero being his son. After Nero stopped him and Dante from killing each other, the two brothers opted to go to the Underworld to fix the damage Urizen caused while continuing their battle at the same time, trusting Nero with the Earth above until they got back.
    • His actions in ripping off his son's arm and creating the monster which would destroy his and Dante's hometown have also earned him the displeasure of Bayonetta, who learned about it all through conversations with Kat and Lady after she ascended. While he personally holds no grudge towards Lady, she makes it entirely clear she despises his bitterness towards humanity. Vergil gets along better with Trish, even though she refused to allow V to seek her approval regarding fixing his own mistake as though she were his mother.
  • Later apologized to Kat for having long lost his honor to a mistaken grudge, then sought out Nero for that rematch, only to discover that Dante, Nero, and their weapons supplier had all been kidnapped by a group of apocalyptic demons called The Fiends who were seeking to harvest Sparda's bloodline for power. He promptly rescued his kin, then tried to leave as quickly as he came only for Dante to invite him to ride with them in Nico's van. The ride was awkward, especially since Nico doesn't like him much (being friends with the son whose arm he ripped off and all, not to mention the time he killed her grandmother), and Vergil was the first person dropped off back at his House, but he didn't seem to mind.
  • When Vergil first heard that his father, Sparda, had ascended into the Pantheon, he was conflicted on the idea of seeing him personally. But with a bit of persuasion from his younger brother Dante, he decided to see their father again. Vergil tried to ready himself to see his father, but seeing his mother again, as a Herald, was something he wasn't prepared for. With his mother crying and apologizing for failing to find him before she died, Vergil explained that everything was all right, and that she had nothing to worry about. At least until she asked what the two did after the attack. Vergil knew exactly how well this was going to end and he was right. After a long lecture from their mother, Sparda expressed how happy he was to see Vergil come to his senses in the end, and how proud he is with his son's growth. By the end of the conversation, even Nico and Lady, who previously hated him, had to admit that he's finally started to grow up.
  • Would like for you to know that he's motivated.

  • Rivals: Mao
  • Opposed By: Dr. Evil, Laharl, Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth (long story)
  • Enemies: Aurum
  • Admired by: Seija Kijin(?)
  • In the Nether Institute, Evil Academy, what many would consider being good behaviour is considered bad and bad behaviour is considered good. Raspberyl sought to become the greatest delinquent and "total badass" is to behave like a real model student should. Because of this, she used to be the goddess of "Rebellious Rebels", but many gods thought that she wouldn't even begin as an Antichrist, so she was moved to this.
  • Beryl has made it her afterlife's mission to help convert most of the Evil-aligned deities to nudge toward the "good" side, to show that they don't necessarily have to be evil because they're demons. She cites Laharl and Zuko as prime examples of her theory. Flonne has enlisted her help in a similar matter.
    • Artix von Krieger is also someone she looks up to, considering that he's the Champion of Darkness whose hometown was burned down due to the dark invaders coming for him, and that he is considered one of the shining lights in the House of Good as its founder of the Sacred Knights.
  • Never, ever misses a chance to sit in on a lecture from Great Teaching God Onizuka, and even shows up for class five minutes early when he announces that his class is being cancelled for the day.
  • Amongst all the gods from the Nippon Ichi multiverse, Beryl is the only one to show a bit of satisfaction in Mao's ascension, saying that she was a little worried that her rival was falling behind. In celebration of his ascension, Beryl dragged Mao into Great Teaching God Onizuka's class. The records will show that Mao was kicking and screaming the entire time.
    • Upon finding out that Mao joined the GUAC, Beryl increased her studies and sought help from other members of GUAG to become stronger. As his rival, she feels that she needs to be the one to stop him should he ever attack GUAG or give in to his dark side.
  • Ragna at first wouldn't stand Raspberyl for sounding like Platinum the Trinity. However, after a while, Ragna started to wonder if Beryl could teach those brats a lesson on how to behave. That was said before Ragna went berserk and before Platinum died. However, due of Ragna calming down and Platinum seemingly surviving, maybe she will one day fulfil on that.
  • After moving to her position, she got a weird admiration from Seija Kijin of all people. When asked why, Seija said that if she was stuck in the Evil Academy, she would have probably done same thing as Raspberyl did. Though calling them allies is a far stretch.

    Ratonhnhaké:ton / Connor 
Ratonhnhaké:ton, God of White-and-Grey Morality (Connor, Connor Kenway, The Man wearing a Wolf)

  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Assassin Insignia, specifically the American Brotherhood Insignia
  • Theme Song: ACIII Main Theme, Connor's Life
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: White-and-Grey Morality, Wields a tomahawk as well as bow and arrows, Aura Vision, Badass Longcoat, Badass Native, Combat Pragmatist, Determinator, Friend to All Living Things, Good Is Not Soft, Half-Breed Discrimination, Heroic Bastard, Lightning Bruiser, Humble Hero, One-Man Army
  • Domain(s): Morality, Death, Stealth, Combat, Revolutions, Freedom
  • Herald: Io:nhiòte (his daughter)
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: The Templar Order, Shay Patrick Cormac, Calvin J. Candie and Stephen, Hunter J, YHVH, anyone who opposes free will or endorses slavery
  • Pities: Nightwolf (due to his fall from grace), Smeagol/Gollum
  • Conflicting Opinion: Iroque
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Night Raid
  • Born and raised within Kanatahséton, Ratonhnhaké:ton is the son of the British Templar Haytham Kenway and Kaniehtí:io, a Kanien'kehá:ka woman. As a young child, he lost his mother during the burning of his village. At age 13, Ratonhnhaké:ton left his village in order to fight against the Templars. After convincing former Master Assassin Achilles Davenport to train him, Ratonhnhaké:ton adopted the name "Connor" and formally joined the Assassin Brotherhood. During his hunt for the Templars, Ratonhnhaké:ton aided the Patriot movement and protected George Washington, unwittingly becoming an important figure of the American Revolution. Eventually, Connor eradicated the Templar Order's influence and control in Colonial America by assassinating their leaders and managed to successfully revive the American Brotherhood, which continued to flourish and expand under his leadership.
  • Connor originally ascended as one of Ezio Auditore's many followers. Impressed by Connor's unwavering moral compass in spite of everyone telling him that his quest for Justice is something inherently impossible and beyond reach, Ezio recommended for him to be ascended as a god in his own right. Eventually, Connor ascended as the God of White-and-Grey Morality, a title that he gladly accepted.
  • Connor was surprised to hear about George Washington's presence in the Pantheon. On one hand, the revelation that Washington had ordered the attack on Connor's village resulted in Connor losing faith in him, but on the other hand, their shared experience of an alternate reality in which Washington had become a tyrannical king had at least reassured Connor that Washington's goal about making America a republic was sincere. Overall, the two remain on amicable terms.
  • He generally gets along well with other Native Americans within the Pantheon, such as Michelle and Julia Chang. He also feels sorry for Nightwolf, whose soul was brainwashed to become one of Quan Chi's revenants. In general, Connor was saddened to learn about what happened to the Native American tribes in the centuries after his time. However, he maintains his positive outlook and idealism, still determined to fight for a better future.
  • Connor frequently hangs out with Jin Kazama, having bonded over how they had both lost their mothers and fought against their fathers. The two are occasionally seen sparring together.
  • Connor is good friends with Raiden, who feels inspired by his desire to fight for justice and ability to remain idealistic despite the losses that he had suffered. Connor often provides Raiden with moral support and encourages him to be better than his enemies.
  • Having been almost single-handedly responsible for undoing everything that Shay had built for the Templars in America, Connor has a particularly strong dislike of him. Shay has a similar hatred towards Connor and is very much interested in assassinating him, with only Ezio himself being higher on Shay's list of Brotherhood members he intends to kill.
  • Connor strongly dislikes Calvin J. Candie and Stephen, as they represent everything that he fights against. Unsurprisingly, their bigotry very much extends to him as well, although the fact that he intimidates them also causes them to generally try to avoid him.
  • Connor has very mixed feelings about Iroque due to the powers of the Indigo Light. As a proponent of free will, Connor strongly disapproves of her use of brainwashing to reform criminals. However, Iroque herself respects him for his strong moral compass, but is also annoyed by his unwillingness to use more extreme methods to fight against injustice.
  • Connor often visits the House of Nature and has managed to befriend Nakoruru, San, Tarzan and Mowgli. Although he's a capable hunter, he always tries to make his hunting kills as clean as possible, sometimes thanking the animal in Mohawk while skinning it. As such, he opposes evil hunters and poachers, which includes Hunter J.
  • Many were surprised to learn that Connor is also a skilled naval captain. However, he explicitly made it clear that he only operated as a privateer, not a pirate, and has denied any associations with the pirate deities in the pantheon. Nonetheless, he still respects his grandfather, Edward Kenway, who was a pirate and Assassin during the Golden Age of Piracy.
  • Having experienced temptation by the Apple of Eden in an alternate reality, Connor strongly empathizes with Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, as they had similarly been tempted by the One Ring. He also pities Smeagol/Gollum for his inability to overcome that temptation.
  • There was once a debate amongst the gods as to whether Connor's surname would legally be Kenway (after his birth father Haytham) or Davenport (after his essentially adoptive one Achilles). Connor himself doesn't particularly care about the debate, although he has made it clear that he never officially adopted any kind of surname.

However, there were musing over Yen's lack of commitment to the society. After receiving several complaints, the The Lady of Vengerberg sought out to build a temple of her own. She never really apologized for her lack of support, ironically giving her the idea of going to the House of Philosophy. Yen may admit to making mistakes, but she justifies all of her actions for the greater good.
    • Yennefer is also part of feud on-and-off again Love Triangle, competing with Triss for Geralt of Rivia. Usually, whenever Yen breaks up with Geralt, Triss is the other woman he hooks up with. To make things even more complicated, Yen and Geralt are seen as the official couple in the books, with Triss in the running from her expanded role in the games.
    • It got so heated that the House of Love forced the three to decide once and for all. In the end, they both decided to share him. On the condition that he stay out of the House of Love and remain loyal to the both of them, Geralt agreed to this arrangement.
  • There is no love for Tywin Lannister, due to his being an abusive dad to his children. His mortal death by crossbow-bolt to the bowels was much well deserved in her opinion.
    • This is especially true to the Patron Saint of all abusive parents: Ghetsis Harmonia. Expect massive fireworks should the two meet in person.
  • Yen's expertise lies in the dark arts and protection spells. The Dark-haired sorceress has no problem with using said dark arts, gaining approval from those who want others to be comfortable using them. It's no surprise that Tharja and Morrigan met with her more often than Triss when she used to share a temple with the redhead.
  • While Yen is very strict when it comes to teaching, she must be coerced into working as a team. Failure to do so will result in her doing her own thing, much to the annoyance of everyone else. This is mostly averted regarding Ciri, her surrogate daughter.
  • As she is a Sorceress, Yen is unable to have children. Which is a sore spot for her. Best not to mention that little fact to her. Or the fact that she used to be a hunchback. That little tidbit Geralt found out on his own.
  • Her home life was...not too pleasant, to be honest. She came from an abusive household, in which her father physically and mentally abused her, while her mother failed to support her. Possibly because she's 1/4 elvish, and Mom was a half-blood.
  • Yen is friends with Daenerys Stormborn, as she, too, is unable to bear children. Of course, that may change now that the both of them are deified... Anyway, Dany seeks to gain a foothold financially in the Pantheon, which is why she seeks to make Valyrian Steel. She has the dragonfire. All she needs is the magic.
    • Due to their traumatic childhoods, Yen also has found kinship with Raven and Magik. As Raven herself is a skilled Sorceress in her own right and Magik is the Sorceress Supreme of Limbo, she is offered a place within her temple, even after she left the House of Magic. Magik now divides her time between Yennefer and Doctor Strange in learning the dark arts, as does Raven.
  • While Nico does not trust the Lodge enough to formally join their ranks, she is more comfortable allying with Yen. Besides sharing crappy parent stories, the teen is glad Yen is more supportive of her becoming independent of factions.
  • Gabriel Belmont ended up doing a double-take upon seeing Yennefer, as she looks a lot like his deceased wife.
  • Not every raven-haired sorceress has the same personality. Zatanna is slightly more light-hearted in her affairs. She is also more wary of Yen's attitude as well as her use of black magic. Yen on her part just isn't a fan of her performances. The two hardly ever work together as a result.
  • “I’m not heartless, I’ve just learned how to use my heart less.”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/barney.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His Suit
  • Theme songs: Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit and For The Longest Time whenever he's with Ted
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolios: Handsome Lech, Chivalrous Pervert, All Men Are Perverts, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Breakout Character, Broken Ace, Comedic Sociopath, The Hedonist, This Portfolio will be Legen… wait for it… Dary, Ambiguously Evil, Bunny Ears Business Man, Butt-Monkey, The Casanova/Casanova Wannabe, Constantly Misses the Point, Consummate Liar
  • Domains: Chaos, Charm, Trickery, Stage Magic, Evil (can be used by all followers regardless of alignment)
  • Followers: Many who write heroes in a negative light and/or write villains in a positive light, Jason Fox
  • Allies: Ted Mosby, Tracy Mosby, Charlie Harper, Mad Moxxi, James Bond, Jiraiya, Panty Anarchy, Darth Vader, Sheev Palpatine, Grand Moff Tarkin, The House of Children (except during laser tag), Oscar Diggs, Mary Poppins, Wreck-It Ralph, The Baroness
  • Rivals: Johnny and Kagura, Isabela of Riven, Zatanna
  • Enemies: All ascended Jedi, Jackie Chan, Dean Winchester, Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese, Miko Miyazaki
  • Respects: The Terminator, AJ Styles and the Bullet Club
  • Barney's history with the Pantheon has been lengthy, even as a mortal. He was the key witness in the case against Ted Mosby, one of the most heartwrenching cases in history. Taking the stand, he listed a number of atrocities against his former best friend, including going after Robin without his content, implying that having a child would make his past relationship with her merely insignificant and worst of all breaking the #1 rule of his patented Bro Code: Bros before Hoes.
    • Was delighted to see the Mother already in the pantheon. Now that she's not the only member of her show in the Pantheon proper, the two are currently spending time exploring their friendship.
  • Barney then thought he would become the new God of Manwhores, but had to decline when he found out he had a baby daughter to take care of. He advocated for Charlie Harper to take the title instead. While Charlie was thankful for the endorsement, Dean remains resentful to this day for losing his temple in the House of Lust.
    Barney: "Worry not my followers. My ascension will be legen... wait for it..."
  • Eventually, his ascension came when he wrote a scathing article on why the Jedi are far less sympathetic than the Sith. Palpatine was most pleased with his story, and enough followers formed for him to achieve godhood. Expect Barney to exaggerate his story to be a much grander tale.
  • Despite his approval of villains, it should be noted that Barney is not evil (though it took a long and hard look from Artix, God of Paladins, to make sure, he is not evil). He claims that many of the heroes are lame and boring, while the villains are almost always cool and awesome. Many of the good-aligned gods may scoff at this, but the more neutral gods believe he has a point: there are many instances in fiction where heroes either act like complete assholes or completely forgettable characters, putting villains in a more positive light. Cosmos has taken this to heart and his working on improving the image of the GUAG.
    • Miko outright refuses that a benefactor of evil would be anything other than evil and swears to bring him to justice. Any attempts to arrest him have failed so far as Barney invests heavily in Escape Artists to escape his bonds. Barney admits he would have gotten her laid if she wasn't such a stick-in-the-mud.
  • Is disappointed (nay, appalled) that his role model Johnny Lawrence had yet to be ascended and is working night and day to correct this wrong. He can only be thankful that neither that bratty karate wannabe or his cheating master had done the same. He still gained the outrage of Jackie Chan for dishing his performance on that other Karate Kid movie.
  • Often tells tall tales about many topics, such as his love life and various theories. Although most gods refute any theory that has to do with the number 83% (Ted theorizes that's the reciprocal of his actual percentage of women who go out with him), they do admit that many of his theories do have some merit.
  • Still adores the original Terminator as one of his favorite characters for nearly killing the bland Sarah Connor, drawing her and Kyle's hatred. It's just that he prefers the superior T-1000 and the hot T-X. Newer is always better after all.
  • Frequently visits the House of Magic in the hopes of impressing the audience with his magic tricks. Became great friends with fellow 'magician' Oscar Diggs and the two often team up for performances. Things got tense when an attempt to hook up with Zatanna went horribly wrong, ending with his mouth completely stitched up. The two now see themselves as rivals on the stage, with Barney losing most of the bouts.
  • Is surprising friendly towards children as he loves raising them. Just don't expect that to save them if they face him in laser tag tournaments. There are already several complaints calling to ban him from the sport.
    • Mary Poppins agreed to take care of his daughter whenever he heads out. He's not exactly a role model for children, but she admits he's a decent father.
  • Although no longer the manwhore he once was, he does occasionally visit the House of Love to hook up with hot chicks. He does get into some trouble as many in that house still think he should have ended up with Robin.
  • Completely agrees with Wreck-It Ralph's plight. In fact, he's investing on a game that would make Ralph the protagonist.
  • Sympathizes with The Baroness and her horrid performance in the movie. Also wishes that she wasn't married. The Baroness for her part uses this to her advantage, receiving many gifts from him.
  • After AJ Styles and his heralds resumed running together to try and take over Vince McMahon's Universe, Barney instantly went for a Too Sweet with Styles the moment he saw him, letting it be known he thinks AJ is much cooler with Bullet Club than alone.
    Barney: "DARY!"

  • Domains: Music, Nobility, Liberation, Good, Law (Georg), Chaos (Maria)
  • Heralds: The von Trapp kids
  • Allies: The Sisters Act Nuns, Mary Poppins, Giselle, America, Switzerland
  • Opposes: Johann Schmidt/Red Skull, Adenoid Hynkel, Wilhelm Strasse, Gunnery Sergent Hartman, Red Forman, Alex Delarge, Lady Tremaine
  • Uneasy Relationship: Eda
  • From one of the most decorated musicals of all time comes the loosely true story of the von Trapp Family, headed by Maria and Georg. Long thought to have retreated to Switzerland after the war, they have reappeared in the Pantheon along with the entire family. It was their ability to balance the others' character traits that helped stabilize their family and thus earn a spot in the House of Philosophy.
  • It can't be stated how much they HATE Nazis. Unfortunately for them, there are plenty of nazis that didn't take their defiance too kindly. The Red Skull in particular promised that they won't be safe for long. The only reason he hasn't gone after them was due to their popularity. He has more pressing enemies to deal with.
    • The family lamented the fact that there is at least one Nazi that successfully took over the world. The Captain strives to help out those affected by his rule.
  • Deloris and the other nuns in Nevada were glad to get to meet Maria. Maria even agreed to sing some songs with them in the House of Faith.
  • Does not find Adenoid Hynkel to be hilarious one bit. Understandable considering what the family went through during World War II.
  • She is a nun, but her involvement with the Pantheon actually started with Mary Poppins, who assigned her to the von Trapp family to help sort things. The Magical Nanny couldn't be more proud of the results and welcomed the couple.
    • While she was considered to be a rather unorthodox nun, she doesn't come close to comparable to what Eda has done. It still makes Maria wonder how she got into the organization in the first place.
  • The House of War welcomed veteran Georg into the Pantheon with open arms. One of the most prolific naval officers in WWI, his entrance was highly regarded.
    • There was a time when he would have respected Red Forman and hold a disdain for his kids for disrespecting him. He even started out as a follower. Nowadays, he could only wish that Forman improved his sorry way.
    • The same goes for Hartman. He has long since learned that he could not treat his children in the same way Hartman did to his recruits.
  • Maria sometimes goes out on karaoke trips with Giselle. Both found love in unexpected places, though Giselle sometimes wishes her man liked singing more. It also gave Maria the possibility of seeing New York City, a completely different beast from her home in Austria.
  • After Alex Delarge defaced a beloved musical song, the von Trapp family wanted to make sure that he won't use any of their songs to do the same. It is not likely that a court case would stop him from doing so regardless, especially with the backing of Lucifer himself.
  • Of course there was a chance that the von Trapp family could have gotten a far worse caretaker. Lady Tremaine could have just as easily appointed a more sinister woman to wreck havoc upon the family. She made this point when she appeared at Maria's doorstep. Maria coldly told her to walk away, but not before chiding her for her treatment of Cinderella. The Evil Stepmother may have complied, but Maria fears that Tremaine may be plotting to replace her with a follower of hers.
  • The family is forever thankful for Switzerland and the United States for giving them asylum. It made for an awkward conversation when the fictionalized versions of the countries greeted them.

  • Months after the events of The Pantheonic Rebellion and The Morality Civil War had left most of the Pantheon in shambles, Cosmos ordered reestablishment of diplomatic stability all throughout, especially at places where there are still a certain level of resistance. However, she wanted not to cause unnecessary trouble, as both sides have had their share of losses, and she did not want to project a bad image for the GUAG that is reminiscent of YHVH and his recently-established GUAL. Captain Bright approached her with a proposal to establish a Diplomatic Corps to facilitate the peace talks in the unsecured regions, then subsequently handed over Relena’s dossier as the first member thereof. Cosmos, after thoroughly analyzing her credentials, approved of her appointment by facilitating her formal ascension into the Pantheon proper. And the rest, as they say is history.
  • Her involvement in the Pantheon’s political affairs actually predates her formal ascension: she was one of the named proponents behind the terraformation project known as Project Blue Mars, and has long been lobbying support for the project among the inhabitants in space colonies. In fact, when Negi rejoined with the rest of Ala Alba to assist the embattled Sisterhood in the Rebellion, she was appointed as pro tempore overseer of the entire project while he was away.
    • According to some members of Ala Alba, Negi apparently placed Project Blue Mars in her care due to her track record in terms of handling diplomatic and political affairs. And, funnily enough, the fact that she reminds Negi of his missing mother.
  • Since she was born to a family who espoused the idea of “Total Pacifism” (an idea which she still keeps close to her heart), most people tend to overlook her other achievements. In particular, the reason for her second title: after her country surrendered to the Romefeller Foundation (thus putting the entire world at the mercy of its leaders), she was instated into the hierarchy of the foundation’s puppet government as its "Queen" for publicity purposes. What they did not expect was that, through just her inaugural speech, she managed to sway the loyalty of all the dignitaries present into overthrowing the Foundation, thus making her a legitimate Queen of the Earth Sphere... For only a short while, until her brother went ahead and started The War to End All Wars, thus forcing her to step down.
  • Apart from her role as a diplomat, most deities remember her for the "unique chemistry" she had with Heero. In fact, she was one of the main reasons (the other being her elder brother Zechs) for Heero’s second title, as he had previously declared his intent to kill her, but could not do so. This did not apparently suit well with the Holy Triad of Slash, who were quick to emphasize her past life as a Lonely Rich Kid, and also the instances of her screaming Heero’s name (Which by the way only occurred thrice or four times depending on who was voicing her). Turns out that, being the Yaoi Fangirls that they were, they only see her as a mere nuisance for their Ho Yay obsessions.
    • However, while she has openly affirmed of her affections for the young Gundam Pilot (which he reciprocates, although not as open), they have yet to enter into a relationship together, partly because of their contrasting roles. And there were still some unconfirmed reports of an alternate continuity where she ended up Brainwashed and Crazy at Mars, becoming her own philosophical antithesis. (Well, according to the deities at the House of Prophecy, anyway; they were the ones behind her "Little Prince" nickname in the first place...)
    • Nonetheless, abducting her is still a very bad idea. The last time it happened, Heero managed to blast through six layers of reinforced steel with three shots from Wing Zero’s Twin Buster Rifle. Vass definitely learned it the hard way.
  • Her relationship with Zechs borders more on casual friends, despite the fact that they are siblings. She has yet to decide as to whether or not to let his spearheading of the Eve Wars slide, especially since he has long abandoned his title as Crown Prince of the Sanc Kingdom, and Heir Apparent to the throne. Nonetheless, she appreciated his help during Project Blue Mars, as a member of the expeditionary team; while Zechs is just glad to have her in the Pantheon proper, allowing him to protect her better.
  • She quickly became friends with Ange, having their share of experience as Fallen Princesses and all (but with different circumstances), and the fact that they share a common friend in Cagalli. In fact, she was one of the first few customers of Café Ange when it opened its branch at the House of Food.
  • Kenshin and Optimus are quite impressed with her, seeing as she had nothing but her knowledge, compassion, and diplomacy skills in upholding her ideals that correspond to her title. Little did they know that she can, on rare occasions, take some matters into her own hands: last time she was abducted, she took the initiative of slapping a disillusioned teenager from blindly following her megalomanic uncle. Turns out that she previously learned the Bright Slap directly from the Eternal Captain.
  • Due to certain similar aspects, she has had odd encounters and relationships with a few deities: Cammy, Chichi, and surprisingly Kurei became close acquaintances with her; the first two for sounding much like her, the latter due to her voice reminding him of his lost love Kurenai. As with Maya though (apart from the aforementioned), she gets teased by the latter to bring with her the teddy bear that Heero gave indirectly to her on her 17th Birthday, months after the Eve Wars ended; turns out that she wants to show to her stuffed bunny, as well.
    • She did have a bit of a problem with Sebastian Michaelis though, as the latter completely mistook her voice for Angela Blanc, thus making him act a bit abrasive towards her. She nonetheless explained her predicament to the demon butler, who has since apologized for the brief incident.
    • Oddly, Kira Yamato and Setsuna F. Seiei tend to ask her if she previously commandeered a Cool Starship; the latter even inquired as to any available intervention missions from Veda. Turns out that they tend to confuse her voice to Capt. Murrue Ramius and Sumeragi Lee Noriega, respectively.
  • As head of the Diplomatic Corps, and apparently a former Student Council President before she entered the political scene, she was eager to welcome Misaki into the group upon the latter's ascension. Though Relena herself admitted that she could not pull off doing the reforms Misaki implemented in Seika high, had she been the one in the latter's position.
  • If there is one peculiar part of her past, it was that Relena had a really harsh battle against people who decried her pacifism, tendency to get into trouble and "being too girly" and was often at the end of "getting killed for shipping business". Relena has endured so much while still keeping her ideals of pacifism until eventually, she was finally recognized for staying steadfast to her beliefs no matter the odds, all of them requiring... well, ovaries of steel for a girl like her. Relena is quite open in speaking that past of hers without even badmouthing her past detractors, and even her successors within the Gundam-verse, such as Lacus Clyne, spoke highly of her.

  • He heard of pantheon as being consider to be the perfect society. Of course he would take this chance to destroy it. Starting with the GUAL as it disgust him as try to force their will on others.
  • He was once approached by both Melkor and Lucifer in an attempt to get him to join their factions after hearing his exploits like how nearly succeded in taking down a Totalitarian Utilitarian system. He refused Melkor as he doesn't see himself as evil for he wants to better society instead taking it over.
  • Despite his dislike for Totalitarian Utilitarian systems, he is a fan of Dystopian literature and often uses it a reference in how to deal with the GUAL. He likes having normal books and dislikes E-Books as he considers them to lack character. Because of this his reason for rising against stems from being a hipster and/or a unemployed English/Literature major that could never make it.
  • He may or not be planning to get the Yandere Quartet to defect to the GUAC as finds them to be very useful pawns as they follow their desires more than anyone in the Pantheon. Terumi is not amused by this and plans on tightening their leash a little more. However, Yukiteru's potential defection from the GUAE could change all that.
  • He has is a rather intelligent individual and he can be seen in the house of knowledge having psychological discussion with others.
  • He dislikes Big Brother and the pig Napoleon as they remind him of the the Sibyl System he tried to destroy. He plans on tearing down them as well and it's going to be ugly. As he is trying to enlist the help of Vaas as well as the Yandere Squad.
  • He had somehow gained an interest in Sora Takigawa, a fellow serial killer, as the Phantom has impressed Makishima for his crimes of killing long-haired women. The two are expecting to work together someday.

Quasideities

    The High School Girls of the Civilian Antarctica Expedition Team 
Mari Tamaki, Shirase Kobuchizawa, Miyake Hinata, and Yuzuki Shiraishi, Quadrumvirate Goddesses of The Importance of the Journey (Mari: Kimari)

  • Allies: Mumble, The Madagascar Penguins, Hubie and Rocko, Sgt. Bryne, Penta Penguin, Polar Bear Cafe, Jack Frost (Rise of the Guardians), Elsa, Jack Frost (SMT), Mei, Anna, Olaf, Skaði, Naruto Uzumaki
  • Friendly Rival: Sonic the Hedgehog (Hinata)
  • Enemies: Etna (especially for Shirase)
  • Fears: H.P. Lovecraft, The Thing
  • Conflicting Opinion: The Prinnies
  • These high-school girls met by chance due to one thing: Antartica. At first, these four girls wanted to go to Antartica for different reasons, but they eventually became True Companions throughout their journey and learned to enjoy Antarctica in their own way, realizing that going on a journey with your friends is important. Their friendship is what eventually led them to make a promise to have their own expedition in Antarctica.
  • Mumble is staying in his temple dancing alone all by himself... that is until he saw four strange human girls wearing similar winter coats out of nowhere. Upon seeing a penguin, Shirase squees in delight, proceeding to hug him into pieces until Hinata stopped her from making it worse. Then the girls wonder if they are in Antarctica, which prompted Mumble to explain to the girls about the Pantheon (who were shock that he could talk). After some time passed, Mumble took a liking to them and recommended them to the Court of Gods for ascension. They eventually agreed and their journey in the Pantheon commenced.
  • The first thing they did (or Shirase rather as the girls follow her around) is meeting penguins in the Pantheon. They met the Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private when they saw them during their spying shenanigans, who were immediately cautious of them at first (specifically for Shirase’s behavior when it comes to them). They felt bad that they are ostracized by their fellow penguins in Antarctica because they want to save Private in his egg stage, though they say that’s in the past. Given their lack of human interaction, they decided to teach them how to interact with other humans and the penguins have slowly grown to like them.
    • Shirase screamed at the top of her lungs when she saw Sgt. Bryne fly using his telescope. This caused her to run to Sgt. Bryne at top speed just to catch him. Sgt. Bryne is caught off guard with Shirase’s extreme obsession of penguins before the girls explained to him about her obsession with penguins. Shirase (who calmed down after a while) became much more fascinated with Sgt. Bryne after learning he’s a soldier and asked him if there are other penguins that are like him in his world. The discovery of Sgt. Bryne’s flight prompted Shirase to learn about other penguin species in other worlds and wanting to write a book about them. Other than that, Sgt. Bryne started to warm up to them especially after Shirase started to cool down her attitude around him.
    • In their visit to Antarctica, they met a pair of penguins named Hubie and Rocko. Hubie immediately warmed up to them and is excited at the prospect of meeting humans who love penguins. Rocko took a while to get along with them (specifically because of Shirase’s obsession with animals), but he eventually warmed up to them and when he showcased his ability to fly, Shirase almost fainted at the sight of it.
    • They met Penta Penguin after Shirase went to his temple because of his surname. Like the other penguins, they became friends with him.
    • The girls visited the Polar Bear Cafe during their break time and met Penguin. They instantly got along with him (specifically Yuzuki as they are both the Deadpan Snarker and the only sane members of their respective groups), and through that, they also became friends with Sasako, Polar Bear, and Panda. Since then, the girls became regular customers of their cafe, sharing conversations with the group about their shenanigans.
    • Seeing how The Prinnies were abused, Shirase proceeded to go on a rant about how their owners are treating them... that is until they learned the Prinnies are sinners who are forced to do their duties to cleanse their sins. While this revelation cause the girls to lose their respect for them, they could agree that the abuse The Prinnies go through is pitiable and that their owners should have taken better care of them.
  • Feeling bored and wanting to have some fun in the Pantheon, they met Jack Frost who was playing with some children. After hearing their suggestions for games, Jack Frost decided to invite Elsa (who wanted to invite Anna and Olaf) and played a snowball-based baseball game in one of the winter grounds. This eventually got them to switch to other games and developing a bond with the quartet, with the girls being amazed by the powers that both Jack Frost and Elsa have displayed in front of them.
    • Through Jack Frost, they were introduced to an another version of Jack Frost, who is a much more mischievous version of him. Nevertheless, they also became friends with him and play games with him much more often.
  • Being the only survivor of an Antarctic snow storm and having been in cryotasis for nine years, Mei could understand their reasons for going to Antarctica and will gladly become their guide if they decide when their next journey will happen. The girls are fascinated with Mei's technology and her pet-robot, Snowball, with Kimari begging if she could use her technology more than Mei could count.
  • Kimari decided to buy a book about one of Lovecraft's stories, At the Mountains of Madness, thinking that it would be an ordinary horror story to scare Shirase and Yuzuki with. After the end of her story-telling, the two girls were scared, then the girls proceeded to burn the book, and became much more afraid of him when they learned what his stories consist of and don’t want to bash him out of fear that they might be included.
  • Being the goddess of winter and skiing, the girls visited Skaði as they hope that they could help her with her powers if they ever went to Antarctica expeditions, not wanting to receive any casulaties. Skaði has accepted their request, who immediately took a liking to the group for their kind personalities and heartwarming friendship. She decided to teach them skiing if they ever felt like using it to have fun in their expeditions, which they have greatly enjoyed and excelled at.
  • Given that three of them had no friends before meeting each other and Shirase had to prove herself that her dream of going to Antarctica can become true, they met someone who had to go through the same fate, although what he’s been through is much worse, named Naruto Uzumaki. To say that they are proud of him becoming Hokage and how he has matured through his journey is an understatement. Naruto returns the sentiment since they had to do the same even if there is less severity about it.
  • Having been warned about The Thing, how it was discovered in Antarctica, and its capabilities, Shirase has prepared the girls to bring a couple of fire-related items to make sure that they won’t be absorbed by the creature. Though they still fear the creature, it has lessened since discovering its weakness towards fire and have prepared themselves to attack him during their encounters. Meanwhile, The Thing is angry that it has to face another set of people that’s using fire against him.
  • Exclusive to Kimari:
    • An ordinary high-school girl who is highly dependent on her childhood friend, Megumi, Kimari was desperate to find something meaningful to do after realizing she didn’t do anything significant in her life. This is what got her to join Shirase’s journey to go to Antarctica; she believed that going somewhere impossible would achieve what she wanted in life.
    • Kimari's favorite food is omurice. When she ate at the canteen, she saw Ayumi and Yuu eating the special Otosaka omurice recipe. Excited to see the omurice, she asked the siblings if she could eat it, which Ayumi gladly acquiesced to by giving her a piece of it and Kimari squeeled at how delicious it was. Ever since then, Kimari has visited Ayumi and Yuu a lot to eat their special recipe.
    • She instantly got along with Yui Hirasawa as they are both energetic, airheaded girls with a cloudcuckoolander attitude and being the irresponsible older sister to their much more responsible younger sister. Yui constantly asked her about her travels in Antarctica and wanting to go there to have some fun before Kimari told her about the dangers there.
“Yeah…this is what it is. Like anything could happen. Like I can make anything happen.”
  • Exclusive to Shirase:
    • The daughter of Takako Kobuchizawa, one of the members of the Antarctic Challenge Expedition Team. After finding out her mother was missing, she started working several jobs every day to save enough money to go to Antarctica, which she announced to the entire school. Her declaration caused her to get bullied and have no friends because of how impossible it is, but this didn’t convince Shirase to drop out from her dream. In fact, it made her much more determined.
    • During the expedition, she realized her mother was Dead All Along after she opened her computer and saw that none of her thousands of emails had been read. Despite the heartbreaking truth, she has accepted it and moved on thanks to her experiences and having friends that she knew could help her, cutting her hair to her mother's length to symbolize it.
    • During her quality time with her penguin friends, she met Chuu, who is also a penguin lover like her. Of course, the two instantly get along and have proceeded to help each other get every penguin merchandise they could get, quizzing each other with facts about penguins, and watching documentaries about them (with Shirase crying in the background).
    • As they both had to travel around the world to find their missing parents, she instantly got along with Gon. She loves him thanks to his kindhearted, if not innocent attitude and is disheartened by how his Nen has disappeared because of revenge, though Gon told her that he isn’t worried about it and that he shouldn't have lost his temper like that. The two often talk about their adventures together and their memories with their respective parents.
    • If there's one thing you should know about Shirase, it's that she is prepared for everything and she means it, losing her cool when something unexpected happens or her friends aren't participating, unless they are in danger. This is why she became friends with S.A.T.8, having a similar tendency. They also bonded over their uncontrolled behavior towards their favorite animals and taking multiple jobs.
“Just let people say what they want. Wanting to show them up fires me up even more.”
  • Exclusive to Hinata:
    • A convenience store worker, Hinata is a high-school dropout because she fears being in crowded places and hates depending on other people. Despite being a dropout, she is an avid runner and very smart and wise, having achieved an A in a high-school entrance exam and a mock exam, which made her able to apply to college. She wanted to join in the Antarctica expedition because she wanted to do something exciting before she started going to college.
    • Her dropout story reveals there is much more to it than that. The star member of the track team of her school, she was asked to be their star player during their tournaments. However, because the third-year students were angry that they wouldn't get to shine in their last year, they started spreading bad rumors about her that forced her to dropout from school, forcing her to become independent and wise.
    • While having a running exercise, she met Ryuji Sakamoto and the two decided to challenge each other to see who's fastest. Despite their personality differences, the two became friends because they share similar fates regarding how their relationships with their track team went and how their experiences forced them to become independent. They have established their relationship as friendly rivals whenever they challenge each other but their experiences caused them to become true friends, with Hinata promising to help Ryuji whenever he has problems.
    • Being a fast runner who used to be on the track team, she established a friendly rivalry with Sonic, who she thinks is a cool hero for defending the world against evil. Sonic sympathizes with her regarding her dropout backstory, but she told him that she is okay right now because of her friends. The two have also challenged each other to races, even if Sonic always wins.
    • Her wisdom made her into something of an advisor to her friends through the use of quotes that she constantly made up. She bonded with Jill over this aspect and having an education that they use to their advantage. Jill is somewhat envious that Hinata is able to go to Antarctica before she going to college as she didn't do anything exciting in her life. She also feels bad about Hinata forcing herself to dropout because of rumors and through that, she will never reconcile with her former teammates, as she was able to reconcile with her ex-girlfriend's sister, though she admits that Hinata's traitorous teammates deserve the treatment they got from Shirase as they refused to acknowledge what they did to her like it never happened when they messaged her during her time in Antarctica.
“When you hit the point of no return, that’s the moment it truly becomes a journey. If you can still turn back, it’s not really a journey.”
  • Exclusive to Yuzuki:
    • Having been an actress since she was five, Yuzuki was desperate to have friends because she didn't go to school often. Originally, she didn’t want to go to Antarctica and was forced to do it because of her job as a celebrity. But when she met Kimari and the others, she was finally convinced to join because they are the first friends she ever had and told her mother she would join only if they joined too.
    • During an autograph-signing for her followers, she met one of the Pantheon’s ascended idol singers, Rise Kujikawa. They have bonded over their loneliness and desperation to have friends because of their jobs and having no friends at school, finding happiness in their jobs because their friends have convinced them to. The two have become great friends and collaborate to make new singles for their fans.
