Pantheon / Vampires

Go To

This House is avoided by many deities. They will suck your blood if you prove useful to their plans. However, this House stays far away from one deity: Wario for his love of garlicnote .

As Rassilon wishes to purge the pantheon of vampires, he is banned from coming within 500m of any of these gods (plus every other vampire deity or a deity related to vampires in some ways outside this house).


Joel often visits this house, because he's looking to make a vampire-only fighting tournament.

One idiot researcher had some advice to give when it comes to proper biting spots on a vampire's human victim (if they drink blood), but whether or not that advice has been heeded varies.

The Crimson Court’s echelons also frequent this part of the House to mingle with their fellow bloodsuckers, if said vamps share their depraved, indulgent tastes that is.

  • Enemies: Dracula, Dio Brando, Yuuki Terumi, Vanitas, Thanos
  • Does Not Get Along With: Rin Tohsaka
  • Opposed By: Medea
  • High Priestess: Akasha Bloodriver
  • The title of Friendly Vampires was once held by Castlevania!Alucard, but the Court of the Gods felt that, while he is indeed kind to his allies and friends, his personality doesn't fit with the trope. There's that, and the fact that he has has an intense dislike of his father Dracula. After looking through several portfolios, they discovered another vampire who is nearly friendly to anyone she meets. It was then decided to have Arcueid ascend.
  • Is feared by a few vampires in the Pantheon, not just because of her vast abilities, but also because she once killed one of her kin, cooked his body on a grill and fed it to Shiki, just to do something nice for him. Dr. Hannibal seems to be the only one interested in her cooking.
    • To this day, Shiki remains unaware that he had a vampire for dinner.
  • Compared to Shiki and Shiro, Arcueid actually gets along very well with Arturia. She was even one of the King of Knight's frequent visitors when she worked at Chiyoko Shiraishi's cafe. In a twist of irony, it's Rin Tosaka that she doesn't get along with. Anytime they're together, they always seem to be bickering about something.
  • Is banned from the House of Sports after a chaotic game of volleyball which ended with Arcueid dropping the moon on everyone. She's also not allowed in the House of Beasts due to looking for... fresh meat to cook.
  • As she is another character who once bore the name of Berserker, she formed kinship with fellow Beserkers Hercules and Sir Lancelot. She doesn't have accesses to the Mad Enchantment as the others do, though.
  • Hellsing!Alucard has spoken interest in facing Arcueid in battle as he had learned that she is one of the few vampires who can match him in ability. Arcuied is rather unnerved by him, as he reminds her a little too much of Nrvnqsr Chaos, who she ironically turned into a meal. Not to mention the time he shot and killed Santa Claus for no reason...
  • While she is indeed a vampire, it's also rather surprising that she is also a magical girl, and she takes it rather seriously. No one knows where she gained the ability to turn into a magical girl, but Medea clams that Arcueid stole some of her magic to do so. Arcueid has not comment on the claim. Thanos for his part is annoyed that another magical girl is in the Pantheon, but is well aware of what she could do to him when at full power. He would rather not face her without his Infinity Gauntlets within reach.
  • Met with Usagi and is surprised to find how much they're are both alike. As one could expect, they become fast friends. Arcueid also became a very powerful ally for the for the Sisterhood due to being a magical girl. After hearing of Vanitas' plan to use Madoka to forge the X-Blade, she promises to help protect her to the best of her abilities. Too bad Madoka isn't the real target.
  • As Archetype: Earth, Arcueid has full access to her powers and possesses planetary authority. This means that she as a grand control over cosmic forces. Exactly how much is unknown, but she's known to be able to shift the Earth off it's axis, melt the polar ice caps, "play pinball with the continents", and wipe out the human race in mere minutes.
  • As friendly and somewhat scatterbrained she is, it's a good idea to not piss her off in anyway. You'll live longer that way. How frightening can she get? Shiki once said that he'd rather fight a bear and it would simply kill him if he lost. Arcueid? She can do much worse.
  • Is still waiting for Type Moon to make a Tsukihime anime for her. "What? One already exists? You must be joking!"

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Dracula's symbol reversed (AKA: Empty wine glass facing downwards. The wine obviously fell off)
  • Theme Song: "Dracula's Castle" Alternatively, "Tragic Prince" or "I am the Wind" (Don't sing this in front of him nowadays, even though he's quite fond of it).
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Breed of Human And Vampire, Good-hearted Vampires Hatred towards Vampiric Father, Backward Names, Non-Evil Dark powers, Rebellious Princes
  • Domains: Darkness, Vampires, Good
  • Followers: A couple of the 27 Dead Apostle Ancestors (Zelretch, Enhance, Merem Solomon, Alcatraz).
  • Allies: Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades and Grant DaNasty, Simon Belmont, Shanoa, the Dovahkiin, Evangeline A.K. Macdowell, Rachel Alucard, Arcueid Brunestud, Kanaya Maryam, Gaius, Giorno Giovanna, Eric Brooks/Blade, Doctor Strange, Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider
  • Enemies: Dracula, Yuuki Terumi, Alexander Anderson.
  • Opposes: Kevin Keene ("I am not a Totally Radical punk skater who will turn myself away from goodness for power").
  • After years of following Dracula, he finally grew sick of his father's evil and cruel methods and finally broke out on his own. Currently on a crusade to free the other vampires following Dracula.
  • In his crusade, he was joined by Rachel Alucard, on basis that she's bored and for the lulz, she playfully proclaim herself Alucard's sister. Alucard never minded.... until Rachel noted the emergence of Terumi and Alucard found out that his House's name was struck out and be replaced with "House of Shitty Vampires" by Terumi. That being said, Alucard has taken extra caution on that man.
    • This relationship and teamwork continued, even after Rachel was elevated. In exchange of him agreeing to keep an eye on Terumi, Rachel also agrees to keep an eye on Dracula.
  • He and the Dovahkiin are on good terms, and sometimes work together, as the Dovahkiin's close friend Serana is a nice girl who was turned into a Vampire Lord by her abusive father for his own ends.
  • There has been recent rumors that the same title of Alucard was held by a certain Trevor Belmont. This has confused Adrian, because as he knew of, Trevor is always a good friend of his, not himself. For that end, he arranged a recommendation to bring two of his original friends, Trevor Belmont and his wife Sypha Belnades, to the Pantheon in order to clear this confusion. They succeeded as well recovering their missing final member, Grant after he was enslaved by Davy Jones.
    • That said, when he heard that the Alucard of the alternate universe succeeded in doing what the main one had always dreamed of; redeeming his father, Trevor said he smiled the most genuine smile he's ever seen Alucard wear.
  • Unknown to many of his more recent followers, Alucard wasn't always this good looking. This is how he used to look and for the safety of his followers (in case they end up feeling betrayed because of his looks), Alucard usually hides this image and only shows it to his followers that he deems not judging Gods by their looks only.
  • He always held the philosophy of "Evil triumphs when good men do nothing", thus he's just as workaholic, just like the Belmonts, in fighting evil. However, Alucard is aware that there are some who would use his slogan in a Knight Templar way, condemning some Anti-Villain in process. He's not too pleased when he hears people doing so and dragging his slogan for it.
  • During the whole Morality Civil War, Alucard's relations with Rachel was strained due to her suddenly using the aforementioned slogan to put down Litchi Faye-Ling for not doing as she suggested. Fortunately Alucard managed to get a wind that something was amiss and possessed Rachel and worked his way to free her from that something's influence, and reminding her that this wouldn't be the way to honor the efforts of her friend Ragna the Bloodedge. After helping her come to her senses, they once again rekindle their 'sibling' relations.
  • Is not in good terms with Remilia Scarlet, due of his father having captured her for a long time. Even after Alucard apologized his father's actions and promised that he is different from him, Remilia's pride was too shattered to let it pass.
  • While he is still very wary around the LOS verse Dracula, Gabriel Belmont he's more then willing to give the newly redeemed vampire a chance.
  • Has noticed similar vocal ranges between him and historical figure Sima Shi, especially with portraits of them done by the one and only Ayami Kojima of all people.

  • Allies: the House of Vampires, the Crimson Court, Zeldris
  • Enemies: The Ancestor, Vampire Hunters like Buffy Summers, the Winchesters
  • Carmilla ascended after her canonical demise in her story. Without Laura around, she just tends to her temple if she isn't wandering around for a new host to drink blood from.
  • In another universe, she succeeded in her "love" for Laura, as she's Carmilla's servant there. But mention the Lords of Shadow timeline at your own peril, since she doesn't like that she's written as classically straight, but even worse, Laura is her adopted vampire daughter there.
    • In another universe, she and Laura are a Happily Married couple of lesbian vampires with a daughter named Bessie.
    • In yet another universe, she only acts as a friend to women she targets, but has no intention of harming those she seduces. In addition, her influence on Laura is not corruptive there, and she even saves her life on several occasions.
  • Despite being a vampire, there a lot of things that she is that differentiates her from most conventional bloodsuckers. A list 
  • Marceline is a little uncomfortable around and jealous of Carmilla, the former because of her personality in general, especially in regards to Laura, and the latter for being a daywalker.
  • The Nasuverse deities are aware of a different version of Carmilla who was an Assassin and her younger version as a Lancer, though they're actually Elizabeth Bathory, who served as the basis of Carmilla as a character. And those who opposed Nasuverse!Carmilla oppose this one, too.
  • As she's a vampire, proud of what she is, and given how traumatized she left Laura after her death, every Vampire Hunter has added Carmilla to their list, though the more moral ones do settle with keeping a very close eye on her or at least putting her on a low priority.
  • The Ancestor had a shitty history with vampires; a noble he tried to kill out of boredom one night turned out to be one and tried to kill him. The Crimson Court that followed him in his ascension piqued Carmilla's interest. She would like to reach out to them were it not for the other horrors in his domain as well as any adventurer she might stumble upon, mistaking her for one of them, or attacking her anyway for what she is and what she's done.
    • As of the Court's ascension, meeting them is no longer a problem. Some say she may have something to do with their permanent arrival in the Pantheon but no one has any evidence to back that up. Whatever the case, they're allies and they have welcomed her to their Courtyard to enjoy and indulge.

  • Tara Brooks, a prostitute working at Madame Vanity's Brothel in London, once gave birth to a bastard, but not without severe labor pains sending her in the direction of a doctor named Deacon Frost. Unfortunately for her, Frost was no more a doctor than he was a ravenous vampire, feasting on the woman as she gave birth, which led to her death. Thus her son Eric was born a dhampyr, tainted by a vampire's kiss but not fully converted into a carnivore of the night; raised by Tara's fellow prostitutes, who'd chased off the predator, and an old man who taught him both jazz trumpeting and combat of the undead; and caught up in the street life as a member and eventual leader of a gang of New Yorkers; all on the road to finally becoming Blade, hunter of night-faring suckheads and legendary black gothic superhero.
  • During his various battles against vampire scourges such as Frost and Dracula, as well as other terrible villains in the Marvel Universe, he encountered many Marvel heroes and was part of several team-ups, his fondest allies including the likes of Luke Cage, Spider-Man, She-Hulk, and Doctor Strange. However, like a lot of grim heroes, he's also suffered his share of personal losses, not the least of which being his own pure humanity, at the hands of an ally corrupted by a new powerful strain of vampirism whose bite fully turned into him a Daywalking Vampire. He's not copping to that last one, though. He'd rather let you think he's always been like this.
  • Adrian Tepes combined forces with Doctor Strange and Ghost Rider to get Blade ascended to the Pantheon using the magic of the Sorcerer Supreme, and even surrendered his seat presiding over Dhampyrs to Blade (since they both share this trait in kind and he had another seat to spare) in hopes of receiving the Daywalker's help in purifying the evil vampires of the Pantheon. Upon arrival, Blade accepted the offer to join the already-existing partnership with both Adrian and Rachel Alucard. He credits allies such as Hannibal King, Bible John Cavik, and his current girlfriend Spitfire for the fact that he even considered this.
    • His comparison of Hannibal King turned out to have some solid foundation, as he and Adrian soon found common ground with the trait whose seat Dracula's son retained; their issues with their vampire fathers. In Blade's case, he both has trouble with the man claiming to be his fathernote  and despises the vampire "doctor" who turned him into a dhampyr at birth.
  • Prior to ascending, he occasionally popped up as the High Priest to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her relationship even to good vampires was always uneasy, though, so even though they trusted each other as vampire hunters, they weren't the best of friends.
  • Aside from his alliance with the Alucards, Blade is on good terms with Arcueid Brunestud as well, since she does occasionally help combat the evil vampires to stop their bloodsucking habits, as well as the Belmont clan as top allies against Dracula. He's also encountered fellow heroic dhampyr Ragna the Bloodedge, but each understands that the other has his own quest to follow, with a mutual offer of occasional help should the other need it. Neither has cashed in on this as of yet.
  • Despite being pleased to see more of the street-level Avengers and Marvel superheroes he's occasionally fought alongside, he's a bit frosty with Nick Fury as he wants little-to-nothing to do with S.H.I.E.L.D. as an organization, and not just because he's a member of MI-13. The Silvereye "vampire soldier team" project and Super Registration Act are only the most personal to him out of several S.H.I.E.L.D. initiatives and endeavors he knows that have been misguided or manipulated to do harm rather than good. This includes the WWE wrestling Shield members too, btw, given that their various separate issues as well as the tendency to take on questionable mercenary assignments when they ran together has sent their entire credo of justice into utter disrepute.
    • In spite of this, he became the most recent Ronin, a costume Clint Barton has worn in the past. He insists the idea of Clint being more tied to S.H.I.E.L.D. rather than the Avengers is a common misconception.
  • Has heard that Father and his homunculi children have been likened to vampires and has therefore decided to investigate them. During this, he discovered that there was one who rebelled against his arcane kin. Greed is now considered a valuable resource for information on that family.
    • Turns out they're not exactly like vampires; certainly less so than the versions of them in the tales he heard of them earlier. However, they are still evil creatures that have to be brought down.
  • When the concept of the Pantheon was made clear to him, he already predicted his feud with the Lord of Vampires would restart in earnest. But he was also surprised to see another incredibly powerful evil vampire among Dracula's allies: Dio Brando, the one who can stop time. Dio has become his top target not named Dracula as a result of this revelation.
  • Does not trust Hellsing's Alucard or Gabriel Belmont, who seem to be either alternate counterparts or different aspects of Dracula. It doesn't help that this Alucard's description of Dracula and his aspects will often flip-flop between friendliness, will-kill-if-given-the-chance, and anywhere in between.
    • That said, he's much more fond of this Alucard's fledgling, Seras Victoria, a young girl who is incredibly nice for a vampire. He's made it part of his cause to protect her from the darker vampires here, though Integra, while grateful for this, has told him that one day Seras will be the one to protect him.
    • Either way, he's part-vampire, so in the name of Jesus Christ, Father Anderson refuses to accept his presence as anything more than a threat and a heathen to be eliminated.
  • While Dmitri, Gangrel and Luna are not Dracula counterparts and are surprisingly friendly (the latter two moreso), they still are vampires after a certain fashion and have each told him themselves whatever cause they have for acting is their own and could just as easily be evil or good. Predictably, he's not too keen on any of them.
    • His opinion on the wrestlers slightly changed when he observed how three ponies entered their temple and he asked the girls (after making it clear he wasn't going to harm them, they have history with things like that) their relationship with the vampires. The fillies honestly stated that they are all friends since it all stemmed from a horrifying trip to Limbo that caused plenty of grief (and then some) which has resulted in the fillies to become more on the offensive and ended in an incident where they were thrust into Limbo and were supposed to offer themselves to keep the darkness docile and then had to destroy it despite the mental stress they went through. Eric has made a note to not ask any more questions.
  • Through his investigation of Gangrel and Luna, he also met the perky and flirtatious Vampirella. Unlike them, however, she's one that he's seen no reason to distrust. She's a completely different branch of vampire from anything related to Dracula (either a Human Alien from a planet whose water is blood or a daughter of the ancient Lilith — possibly even both) and has dedicated herself to fighting many hellish monsters including Dracula himself. He only later discovered Vampirella's friendships with both Arcueid and Adrian, who then confirmed to him that yeah, she's good.
  • There was a particular incident in which he had to work with the X-Men to stop another son of Dracula, during which Jubilee was turned into a vampire. They made the decision to reassemble and resurrect Dracula, who was dead at the time, just to take care of his son, which Blade objected to, and Wolverine went out of his way to protect Jubilee, who gave him fangs for his trouble. Blade's been on cold terms with them ever since, especially Wolverine (who was cured in the end) and Jubilee (who wasn't).
  • Was once invited to spar with Touta Konoe at the House of Combat, only to quickly discover why: Touta is a fellow daywalker with magical properties and a major Healing Factor, but who doesn't need to drink blood to survive (though he does get stronger from it). Blade deduced that whoever sired Touta must have set up the meeting, but has yet to see who that is. In any case, he regards the kid well.
  • Once teamed up with Jill Valentine to stop a horde of werewolves. Come to think of it, he's not a huge fan of the Wesker siblings, due to Albert and Alex wanting to weaponize his blood.
  • While tracking down Vanilla Ice in a jungle in hopes of getting a lead on Dio, Blade was suddenly jumped by the monster Riptor, who had mistaken him for a boxer named T.J. Combo. Even after seeing that this wasn't the case, the raptor had him on the ropes and tried to kill him until Maya Fallegeros swooped in and attacked, forcing Riptor to retreat. Sparring and trading stories with Maya, they gained each other's respect, and she warned him about her vampiric sister Mira before he left the next day.
  • Sympathizes with Koyuki and Dante on what they've gone through, and has noted that they hunt their own kind just like him.
    • In Koyuki's case he pities her more for having to go through all that at such a very young age. Because of this, he defends her position on stopping the villains of her own kind, despite Magical Girls being unlike vampires in that they're not usually evil. This wound up earning the attention and respect of Batman, who has now trusted Blade to look after his son Damien and adopted daughter Cass, though hoping that he tempers Damien's attitude rather than indulge it.
    • In Dante's case the two have worked together to try and undo any remnant traces of Jedah Dohma's plans to merge the Marvel and Capcom worlds. While Blade had no part in the original incident itself and said plan went awry, neither man wanted to take the risk of Jedah, Mundus, or Dracula raising up and unleashing their dominions on the Pantheon. Dante couldn't help but notice his Blaxploitation-like American slang, which he picked up from both Afari and the Bloodshadows. Also, he doesn't like Vergil for embracing demondom and being all about power. Dante doesn't blame him.
  • Finds himself working at times with The Undertaker, who, despite speculation calling him a zombie, demon, or even a dhampyr, is actually more like a personification of Death itself who also happens to be a badass striker, violent grappler, motorcycle aficionado, and dress a lot like either a black druid or Gabriel Van Helsing. Blade had a bit of fun noticing all this, but still respects the Deadman nonetheless, and Taker's seeming retirement from the wrestling ring at the hands of Roman Reigns is another part of why he doesn't like the Shield.
  • Considers cannibal humans especially heinous for being humans who choose to behave like vampire predators, betraying humanity much like vampire familiars do. The non-evil vampires he has known in life, including himself, and now here in the Pantheon, only reinforce this. For this reason, and due to disgracing the first name of his best friend, he loathes Hannibal Lecter. As he puts it:
    "Some motherfuckers are always trying to ice-skate uphill."
  • Sees the Wendigo as a tragic monster deserving of a Mercy Kill as, much like some of the vampires he's had to kill over the years, she is a former human who does not like her current state but is nevertheless too much a threat to preserve.
  • Is disgusted by the monster named Cell, who grew in physical power and achieved his perfect form by literally drinking and eating people through his tail. Upon hearing of Cell Games 2.0 after he ascended, he's wondered if his invitation got lost in the mail.
  • Lois Lane always refers to Blade as "Wesley", even when he threatens her with bodily harm for it.
    "Reminds me of a detective I know."
    • Superman will tell Blade to take it easy when this happens in his presence. He's used to Lois calling him "Smallville" at times and can tell Blade isn't being actively malicious, but plays his protective part all the same.
  • Both Maya and Dante later came back to him and invited him to join a team of monster hunters including Buffy. He accepted their offer, albeit on a guest-member basis.
  • "I'm on a mission. To hunt down and kill those monsters that have plagued humankind for so long. So now, they call me Daywalker. And they fear me. As well they should."

  • Opposed by: Most females of the pantheon, really
  • Fears: Tirek
  • Avoids: Zs'Skayr and the Houses of Ghosts and Undead
  • Michael Morningstar is the son of a wealthy family, with a menagerie of Plumbers technology. At first seeming kind and mild-mannered, he showed himself to a be manipulative sociopath who had turned schoolgirls to zombies and wanted to feed on Gwen Tennyson's mana. He would end up disfigured and donning the title of "Darkstar", seeking revenge against Ben and Gwen. Now he's entered the Trope Pantheon, in hopes of finally settling the score.
  • Sharing a common enemy, he has teamed up with Albedo. Admittedly the too don't get along, with the latter seeing him as a sleaze, but a Villain Team-Up between the two Ben 10 villains is a lot easier than with Zs'Skayr.
  • Darkstar may not be a true vampire, but he's close enough to seem like one. He has the power to drain life force, lives in a gothic mansion and has a thrall of women he's sucked the life out of. Most of the rest of his house is either neutral on him or sees him as a creep, though he and Mira are fine feeding with each as they specialize in draining life.
  • His powers require some form of mana, so he can't do anything against Zs'Skayr or any Ectonurites. He's found that ghosts and the undead in general seem to be unaffected as well, since not truly being alive means there's nothing to drain.
  • Gets along with Dio Brando, as they're both pretty boynote  life-suckers with ice for blood and narcissistic ambitions.
  • Initially had a Bishōnen appearance, however when his victims retaliated they disfigured him into a hideous, undead-like being. He wears a helmet in order to hide the fact his face is as twisted as his soul. You can usually find him in the House of Personal Appearance, trying but always failing at permanently restoring his body to its original form.
  • Rather misogynistic and condescending to women, whom happen to be his favorite prey; he can usually be seen with a bunch of zombified schoolgirls. He used his good looks and charm to manipulate women to get what he wants, something Prince Hans can get behind(though states he could be a little smarter about it).
  • Sucking the life of ordinary people may help him, but it only sustains him temporarily. He's desperate for more a powerful life-source, that being magic users. As such, he prowls the House of Magic to suck the life out of other gods, specifically the women there. He keeps his distance far from Tirek's who's Mana Drain would be even more deadly on him than normal magic users.
  • As Darkstar, his energy blasts and powers are similar to Raven. He's interested in sucking her dry, and the two are at odds. Of course, it's just as possible that if he were to try and suck her dry would backfire terribly. He doesn't like Beast Boy much, due to his abilities reminding him of Ben 10.
  • Is voiced by Will Wheaton, however neither cares about the other and Will thinks he's a jerk.
  • Despite the name, there is no known relationship to any devil in the pantheon. None of them care much about him.

    Mira Fallegeros 
Mira Fallegeros, Goddess of the Vampiric Kiss
  • Intermediate Goddesses
  • Symbols: Her Clawed Gauntlets
  • Theme Song: Nocturne in Blood
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Her Insect Motif Is The Scarab And Beetle, The Undead Twin Sister Of Maya Fallegeros, Who Is The Cain To Maya's Abel, Known For Speaking Russian, Uses Her Blood (seen in a gray hue) For Her Attacks Which Drain Her Health, Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette With Supernatural Gold Eyes, Fallen Heroine
  • Domains: Vampires, Undead, Siblings, Latina Women, Former Hunters, Blood Magic
  • High Priestess: Eliza
  • Followers: Her Vampire Order
  • Allies: Sadira, Skarlet, Kitana, Liu Kang, Alexia Ashford, Jedah Dohma Anub'arak
  • Enemies:
  • Hot For: Vampires Count Dracula (Castlevania) and Gabriel Belmont
  • The GUAE, always looking for an advantage, has extended an invitation to Mira Fallegeros, the fraternal twin sister of Maya Fallegeros. Having a vampire who was trained in the ways of the Night Guard would prove to be beneficial for the GUAE. Mira was uninterested at first, but changed her mind upon learning that her twin sister was in the Pantheon. Mira accepted the offer, thus securing her ascension.
  • Mira wasn't always a vampire. She was a member of the Night Guard alongside her sister, having been trained by her father. Whilst on a mission to eliminate a Siberian coven of vampires, Mira gave her life in order for her sister to escape. Then, the vampires revived her and turned her into a vampire...and eventually, their leader.
    Mira: "They dug me from the rubble, the very things I came to kill. They honored me. I was worthy of their power. And oh, what power it is."
  • Maya was not very happy to find out that her twin sister was not only a vampiress, but also having ascended to the Pantheon, having been invited by the GUAE. Mira, on the other hand, is eager to confront her twin sister in a final showdown.
    Mira: "I've been looking forward to this reunion...sister."
  • That grayish, mercury-like ichor that Mira uses for her attacks? That's her blood. She is able to channel it through her gauntlets, at the cost of her vitality.
  • Kitana and Liu Kang see the similarities between themselves and Mira. Both served the forces of light before they were reborn in the darkness. Mira sees the Emperor and Empress of the Netherrealm as kindred spirits as well.
  • Mira is a proponent of blood magic, and has an intense hatred for those who reject its power. The ascended kombatants who had been corrupted by the Blood Code in the past (Johnny Cage, Sonya Blade, Cassie Cage, Jacqui Briggs, Mileena, Kotal Kahn, Raiden, and Kuai Liang) top that list. While Kotal uses blood magic when he fights, he stays away from the Blood Code.
  • Mira also has developed an interest in Iori Yagami and Leona Heidern. Or rather, the Blood Riot, which transforms them both into enraged killing machines. Both Iori and Leona see that Mira is bad news and keep their distance.
  • It's no secret that Alucard and Alexander Anderson hate each other. But when both the No Life King and the Iscariot Agency's bayonet-wielding priest find themselves united against Mira, then you know that something is wrong.
  • While Mira is not a huge fan of the Triumvirate Of Survivor Horror, she has a dislike for the Wesker 'siblings', Albert and Alex. However, she is friends with Alexia Ashford, as their friendship came from a match both women had. The fact that Alexia's blood catches fire impresses Mira.
  • Mira has the hots for Count Dracula (formerly known as Mathias Cronqvist). While Dracula is flattered, his heart will always belong to his beloved Elizabetha (or Lisa). The same can be said for Gabriel Belmont, as he still pines for his lost wife.

    Rachel Alucard 
Rachel Alucard, Goddess of Non-Bloodsucking Vampires (Madam Rachel, Rabbit, The Scarlet Onlooker, The Rosen Princess)
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Nago & Gii, her familiars, on her emblem.
  • Theme Song: Queen of Rose and Scarlet Onlooker.
  • Alignment: True Neutral, with Neutral Good tendencies.
  • Portfolio: Snarky Vampire Princess, Electricity, Controlling Winds, Aversion of Blood-Drinking, Big Goods, Parasol of Pain, Tea Drinking, Constant Boredom, Ripple Effect-Proof Memory
  • Domains: Vampires, Knowledge, Time
  • Followers: Count von Count, Sarah and Rory
  • Allies: Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, Thrall, Scorpion, Raiden (Mortal Kombat), Ragna the Bloodedge, Adrian Tepes, Valvatorez, Alice Liddell, Remilia Scarlet, Eric Brooks/Blade
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Hakumen, Kokonoe Mercury
  • Enemies: Yuuki Terumi, Relius Clover, Nu-13, Dracula, Alexander Anderson, Quan Chi, Shinnok, Kano, Mirai (one-sided), Arthas Menethil, Gul'dan
  • Opposes: Izanami, Bloody Marie
  • Amassed too much power that Adrian/Alucard had to elevate her in such. Rachel is nonetheless thankful for the concern. She still assumes the role of 'Alucard's sister' to relieve some boredom when not observing Ragna or planning on stopping Terumi.
  • She likes her tea and finds blood disgusting, but her attitude is something that not everyone is going to accept, causing trouble occasionally.
  • Tends to visit Iroh's tea houses, acknowledging it to be the finest tea-brewers. However, crossing path with Litchi Faye-Ling (especially when both are buying teas) will always net a disdainful glare from Rachel, still disappointed with her decision to side with Terumi even for a justified reason (although a nearby Alucard will usually temper this before it gets out of hand). Rachel also has no comments with Litchi redeeming herself, she's still wary that her gullibility will make her vulnerable.
    • But she'd rather cross with Litchi than crossing with Excalibur in the middle of buying teas. Meeting him is one of the few moments where the unflappable Rachel could lose her cool, she'd rather not let anyone see her make the (ﺧ益ﺨ) face (except a select few like Valkenhayn and Alucard).
    • She managed to flip the situation around as ammunition against Terumi, saying that he still has ways to go to piss her off like Excalibur did. She's the one who comes up with the idea of tossing Excalibur to Terumi to let him have a taste of his own medicine. Chuck Norris took up the idea, and Rachel seems to enjoy seeing Terumi flip off against Excalibur before Hakumen finished him off, she recorded them magically.
  • After receiving even more of her original power, she had gained the ability to elevate anyone she chose to deity status, just as Adrian had done for her. Naturally, Rachel chose Valkenhayn, and he was given a position that had previously not been thought of (see below).
  • Met the newly ascended Alice Liddell one day after being introduced by Iroh and cast her off as a hopeless dreamer and nuisance. One transformation later by the rising Avatar of the Power of Imagination and Rachel found herself on the ropes, forcing her to turn to her Unlimited Mode to make things even. Their match ended in a draw as George XIII zapped Alice at the same moment Rachel was struck by a tea projectile from the Teapot Cannon. Respecting someone who could give her a good fight and a lover of tea, she considers Alice an equal and ally.
  • As of recent, she has expressed concern over the fate of Ragna the Bloodedge, commenting that if he would die, she is to be killed as well. She only trusts that either Tsubaki Yayoi, Jin Kisaragi, or Alucard would be the one to do the job.
  • Recently and due to Raiden's status in The Fallen, she took over his former place as the Big Good to the Mortal Kombat characters in the Pantheon and began working with Liu Kang, Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade to free Sub-Zero's, Kitana's, Stryker's and Smoke's avatars from Quan Chi's control. She also has agreed with Kitana to ascend Sindel once her avatar is safe again and, in turn, free the latter's avatar from Quan Chi's control. Also has agreed with her and Scorpion to kick Quan Chi's ass once and for all, and currently is looking to free Raiden from The Fallen, although she isn't going to be without calling him out on his acts and giving him a well-deserved Breaking Speech.
    • Due to this status, she was one of the first deities to find out about Shinnok's plan to steal the Boosted Gear from Issei in order to gain its powers and become the only god of a certain position. To try and stop the sorcerer, she allied with Issei, who says she reminds him of Gasper, one of his non-ascended pals of the Occult Research Club. Rachel has also pointed out that she'd definitely like to see the results of Issei wearing the "Spectacles of Eros".
    • She, alongside with Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, freed Kitana from Quan Chi's control and back to the GUAG.
    • While she's dismayed on the fact that Raiden wound up corrupted again while defeating Shinnok, she felt something akin to satisfaction when it was announced that he would be moved to Purgatory and that he actually wasn't fully responsible for what happened in his world, with Shinnok and Quan Chi having worked together to make it look like Raiden was. Still, she couldn't help but be reminded of the time Nu-13 succeeded in becoming one with Ragna to become the Black Beast...
    • This eventually came to a crashing end, as Rachel did not expect the interruption of a certain Arthas Menethil to influence Liu Kang to embrace his darker side and eventually broke away with her. This creates a chain reaction where one by one, the Kombatants entrusted to her started leaving her guidance, citing her as not any better than the past Raiden. Although Rachel still kept up the facade that she was just minorly annoyed, it's clear that this is taking a toll to her mind, and wonders if this will affect Thrall as well. The only thing that she could do right now is to declare Arthas as one of her enemies.
    • Following the events of the 25-Year Prophecy and its aftermath, Raiden returned to the Pantheon and took back his place as the Big Good of the MK-verse. Initially he was slightly at odds with Rachel, but the two eventually became very good friends, with the Thunder God expressing gratitude for the vampire lady and her work while he turned into Dark Raiden and Rachel complimenting Raiden for his return to his original, good self and the effort he put for making amends with Liu Kang. To this day, the two work together to ensure the well-being of their respective universes, and you might even see them having a cup of tea together when they have a day off.
  • Became good friends with Remilia Scarlet after her ascension, as the two vampires were able to find multiple similarities with each other.
  • She once caused that a large part of this House was blasted into oblivion. The reason for that was when Mirai tried to befriend her, Rachel started calling her being a mere child, which eventually spiralled down to Mirai starting to blast this sub-house with her Landkreuzer.
  • Has a...history with Bloody Marie. While some claim Marie took combat tips from Rachel to become so deadly a force, the Skullgirl doesn't care for Rachel's lip and sees her as an annoyance, due to some incident regarding Rachel attempting to take the Skull Heart and claiming her heart was pure enough to resist its effects. The fact she once called Rachel a child and then said she would have been more respectful had she known Rachel was an elderly woman didn't help matters either. All anyone saw of their battle was lightning and skulls flying everywhere, but the end result did nothing to satisfy either of them. Since then, Rachel has refused any contact with her.
  • It turns out that her extreme animosity against Litchi during the Morality Civil War was caused by a certain outer-Pantheon 'essence' that demands/subconsciously brainwashed her to enforce the motto of Alucard 'Evil triumphs when good men does nothing' to a rather extreme degree, and she was apparently amongst 'the good men' while Litchi's actions to not stop 'evil' considered letting evil triumphing, therefore must be punished. Alucard managed to snap a good sense out of her, by reminding her that this is probably NOT what Ragna wished. Thanks to that, Rachel agreed to leave Litchi alone and she fixed her previously strained relations with Alucard.

Lesser Gods

    Gangrel and Luna Vachon 
Gangrel and Luna Vachon, Gods of Vampire Vannabes (Gangrel: David William Heath, Lestat the Vampire, Vampire Warrior, The Black Phantom, 'Grel | Luna: Gertrude Elizabeth Vachon, Trudy Herd)
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: A goblet next to a silver ankh, or a wolf's head Gangrel) and a set of vein-like tattoos around the eye (Luna)
  • Leitmotif: "Blood" (for Gangrel) and "Enginerock" (for Luna)
  • Alignment: True Neutral/Chaotic Neutral, with some leanings toward Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Darkness, Vampires, Blood, Wrestling
  • Followers: Vampiro, Rio Storm, Lady Vampire, El Diablo Verde
  • Allies: The Undertaker, Kane, Edge, Christian, all Good-aligned vampire gods in the Pantheon, Gomez and Morticia Addams and the rest of their family, Claire Stanfield, André the Giant (Luna's Godfather), The Usos, The Wyatt Family (on-and-off again, though...currently off), The Cutie Mark Crusaders (Yes, seriously), Vampirella, Larten Crepsley
  • Rivals: Randy Orton, John Cena and essentially anyone that get on their bad side.
  • Enemies: BROKEN Matt Hardy and Jeff "Brother Nero" Hardy, YHVH (Moreson for Luna on this one) and essentially any god who lays a finger on the Cutie Mark Crusaders (yes, seriously).
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Every good-aligned Equestrian god (in regards to the safety and well-being Cutie Mark Crusaders. Yes, seriously)
  • Distrusted by: Eric Brooks/Blade
  • Distrusts: Gentaro Kisaragi, The Kamen Rider Club, Ryusei Sakuta and Elena (See below)
  • High Priests: Kevin Thorn and Ariel
  • One day, the skies of the Pantheon turned red, and whispers were heard throughout. Then, in the middle of the House of Ambiguity, a large ring of fire was lit, and Gangrel rose from it, spitting blood in the air. Luna was also at his side, scaring the Cutie Mark Crusaders when they got a bit too…close for curiosity sake. The two then built their dark temple as everyone watched with a bit of horror and awe.
    • Originally, Gangrel was going to ascend by himself. However, Gangrel insisted that Luna came with him since a) they were husband and wife for a time, and b) it was in her honor, since she passed away in 2010. The Court of the Gods looked it over and agreed with his statement. The House of Life and Death brought Luna in so (ex) husband and wife could ascend together. It turns out despite their separation, Gangrel truly did love Luna and was honestly saddened by her passing.
  • Edge groaned when he found out that Gangrel returned. When asked why, Edge wouldn't answer. Gangrel just smirks, knowing that if Edge wants to have that little bit of history kept secret, he'll have to ally with both Gangrel and Luna. After hearing that Christian and the Hardys all ascended, the only thing that could be heard in this House was Gangrel just plain laughing at how glad he was to find the Brood back together again.
    • And just to make it clear, Luna herself has no idea what happened during that time period (she married him two years after both the Brood and the New Brood dissolved).
  • The two make this clear on the door of the temple: They are not living a "Gothic lifestyle"—they are vampires. The next person who says that they're Goths is getting a blood bath with their own blood pouring down on them. If you ask Edge though, it's more "pseudo-vampire" than anything else.
  • Like all other vampire gods, the two really despise those sparklepires and don't mind burning effigies of those freaks in a ring of fire...or ten.
    • Then Ebony Dementia Way came in and someone dared 'Grel to a Drinking Game on her fic. End results? He only made it halfway before he gave up drinking from his goblet and instead spat everything out.
  • When not being vampiric, the two are actually...nice, Luna especially to the point where some thought that she was too good-hearted to be in the wrestling business. Sort of like Wreck-it Ralph, the two are dark, fierce vampires when on the clock; when off, they are actually accessible and quite chatty. Just don't make them mad, because they won't hesitate to put someone in a blood bath.
    • To be honest, Edge, Christian and the Hardy Brothers don't mind Luna's company as she's a nice person. They're just really uncomfortable in regards to anyone asking about their history with Gangrel. But on the flipside, Gangrel has been quite disturbed by Jeff's dark persona "Willow" as he's too insane even for the vampire. Then he found out how Willow came back (Alternate Gentaro brainwashed him to become Willow) but, despite all of this, he decided to take a step from the madness...until a certain trio of ponies got involved (It's a Long Story, see below).
  • Luna Vachon didn't like it that she had a similar name to both Luna Lovegood and Princess Luna. She eventually warmed up to the two (slightly), since Luna Lovegood was interested in the strange and bizarre, and Princess Luna was into the darkness and macabre (even showing off her magnificent nightmare chariot and ability to make a cape out of bats).
    • Luna also found a huge fan in one Tomoko Nozama, since Tomoko was amazed to hear how Luna herself accepted herself as an oddity. Luna admits that Tomoko's relationship with Ryusei is absolutely adorable.
  • Randy Orton challenged them to a 2-on-1 handicap in the Pantheon Square Garden, and then ambushed them with an RKO each. Unfortunately for him, the two retaliated with a blood bath of their own, which took at least two whole days to clean off. He's hated them ever since and the feeling's mutual. They also don't like Cena for some odd reason. In their eyes, he's just too good.
  • Luna has been curious to find others following her footsteps on the whole "Being a crazy diva" and all. She has to admit that AJ Lee's ploy was something even she would never go through (for example, dressing up like Kane and making out with him).
  • Gangrel and Luna sometimes have chats with André the Giant. This is because André is Luna's godfather. The giant wept tears of joy to see his godchild in the Pantheon and thanked Gangrel for being there for her when he could. The Brood members can be seen also, and they are happy to chat with the Giant over their WWF days.
  • Upon the ascension of the Wyatt Family, the two factions actually got along pretty well. Bray loves the ring of fire entrance, while Gangrel admits that Bray does a better job in speaking to the masses. However, with Bray being purified by BROKEN Matt, 'Grel and Luna stay far away from him.
    • After Matt calmed down and became tag team champions with Jeff, Bray the host of "Firefly Fun House". The two really keep their distance now.
  • The two bonded with the Cutie Mark Crusaders after the events concerning The Friendship Asylum (really long story). While many of the Equestrian Gods (and likewise various wrestling gods) find the new friendship odd, the Crusaders don't mind. Woe to those who decide to harm the Crusaders; Gangrel will not hesitate to create a blood-bath for those who hurt his dear friends. This is because of said bond that he absolutely went apeshit against BROKEN Matt Hardy when he sent the fillies into Limbo again. Any feelings that Gangrel has for the elder Hardy brother (and also for Jeff Hardy/Brother Nero) have completely evaporated and he isn't going to forgive them anytime soon.
    • And even before that, Gangrel really hated Yugi Muto and Yami Yugi for sending the Crusaders into Limbo in the first place, but forgave the two after the Crusaders stated that the two were brainwashed and had no idea of the crimes they committed and the two were already beating themselves for the other acts of chaos that they caused. Mot to mention that the act of sending the Crusaders to Limbo actually benefited them since they saved Gentaro from dying. Gangrel has forgiven the two but is still wary about them, though both Yugis have noted that they aren't allied with the Broken Hardys.
      • And when Gangrel learned that Gentaro was the one who spearheaded the idea of letting Matt send the Crusaders to Limbo in the first place (in Gentaro's defense, he wasn't in the right state of mind when this occurred) and had his friends and girlfriend work with him, he basically told Gentaro that the boy better be ready for a blood bath if that ever happened again.
  • Most gods were amazed to learn that underneath Luna's vampire persona, she's actually a born-again Christian. Thus, Luna despises YHVH for perverting the idea of Faith itself and, considering that he had a hand for "Project: Alternate!Gentaro" which affected the Cutie Mark Crusaders, she wants nothing to do with him and the evil gods of the GUAL. She was absolutely silent to find God in the Pantheon though, and slowly approached him, dropping to her knees in prayer and asking him for forgiveness for the drug overdose that killed her mortal self. God, as he always did to others, forgave her. Luna cried in his arms for quite some time.
    • She's also met with Rey Mysterio, AJ Styles and Shawn Michaels (the latter also a born-again Christian) and the four go for prayer on Sundays.
  • One day, both Gangrel and Luna paid a visit to Hell's Kitchen. Upon seeing the names of contestants who tried to survive said kitchen, Luna was curious to find that one of her sons (Van) was on the wall. Gordon Ramsay, upon taking a good look at Luna, finally realized where Van got all that energy from.
  • During one of their playdates with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Vampirella came in and openly tried to seduce Gangrel in front of the Crusaders, pissing Luna off to the point that she began hurling the ponies at the younger vampire. This caused such a ruckus that Ralph had to come in and ask Vampirella to leave. She did so…but not before kissing Gangrel in front of everyone, leaving Gangrel curious, Luna furious, and the Crusaders utterly dumbfounded. When they met Vampirella again, she came with an apology to Luna for toying around and moving on her partner and was curious about their friendship with the candy-colored ponies. Luna chronicled their history together (but tried to limit the talk about Limbo for fear of retribution) and Vampirella was actually moved enough to help them watch the Crusaders' backs when they're not around. None of the Equestrian Gods know what to think of this.
  • After hearing about the time Freddy Kreuger tried to invade the Crusaders' nightmares, Gangrel absolutely blew his top and actually went into the dream world, thanks to Princess Luna, to send Kreuger into a Blood Bath so bloody and gruesome that the princess was unable to describe the carnage. Then Luna Vachon came in and...well, let's just say that Krueger has learned not to mess with the two and their friendship with the Crusaders.
  • Many gods have wondered just what is Gangrel's history with Edge and Christian as all that is known was that Christian and Edge were brothers (later close friends) and that Gangrel had brainwashed Christian, tried to coax Edge onto his side (stating that Gangrel's blood flowed through Edge's veins) and Edge eventually joining the little brood despite wanting nothing to do with the vampire. The answer? He and Edge occasionally run into each other in the mortal world, during which they wonder about it just like everyone else. In short, there is none. Gangrel had to admit that all he knew was just that the three had to go along with the whole "idea" of being The Brood as he'd been pulled aside and hired to be a creepy Stealth Mentor to Edge and whatever history they had prior to the assignment never existed.
  • Met with their new neighbor (See below) after Scootaloo ran over Crepsley with her scooter when the Crusaders came for another LARP session. The wrestlers now trade stories with the former Circus-entertainer vampire while the Crusaders are now learning about stage-magic to add to their repertoire.
  • Gods uncovering the meaning of Gangrel's name are confused; the name fits a a race of vampires who can transform into beasts, not those who would love a good brawl. Gangrel's response is that it's due to how he lead the four wrestlers that would become future champions. Later on, many joke that this type of name fits him because of how he's usually the caretaker of three little ponies.
  • When he's not wrestling, at his temple, or babysitting ponies, 'Grel actually teaches wrestling in the Celestial Academy. He's actually befriended The Usos since he's good friends with their father, Rikishi. The Usos have met with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, although the two aren't ready to take on 'Grel's position as "Cutie Mark Crusaders Babysitter" just yet.
    • 'Grel has no idea what to think about the The New Day and their own love of ponies (And also because The Usos are their rivals later Worthy Opponent), but is willing to tolerate them since they keep the Crusaders off of his back when he needs time off. As a peace offering, the New Day even offered to dress up as The Brood to show there were no hard feelings. The vampire wrestler had to admit that it was Actually Pretty Funny and has permitted the trio to have their LARP battles with the Crusaders whenever they want and eventually — when the CMC decided that they had to grow up — the New Day are now officially their caretakers.
  • It was during this time with the New Day that a huge epiphany played out — sure, the CMC loved being friends with the vampires, but deep down they were opposites of one another and their friendship just couldn't last. So, with heavy hearts, the CMC decided that they must move on. Gangrel and Luna agreed and the two groups parted. Some vampires noted that after the CMC took the train back to the House of Deities, they could hear sobbing within their temple after everything was said and done...but it wasn't from Luna.
    • Later on, after things cleared up, the vampires came to a conclusion that the CMC didn't really change them that much — they still are Chaotic Neutral — except for how they decided to find a new house for themselves. The vampires still keep their distance from the CMC although the Crusaders do find a basket with tickets for wrestling shows and other vampire-like paraphernalia every now and then...

  • Originally found wandering in the House of Vampires he quickly ascended to the god of Vampires that love their vampire son; or in his universe assistant, after the Main House discovered his history with his own assistant, the young Darren Shan.
    • For those that don't know a vampire's assistant is literally just that, a humannote  who assists a vampire in life. Said humans; and half-vampaneze, do this so that they can ultimately one day become a vampire themselves. During their time as a assistant the human will eventually be turned into a half-vampirenote ; a process that's done by having vampire blood pumped into them through their fingernailsnote , so long as the assistant still wishes to become a vampire. As a half-vampire they usually continue to serve as an assistant up until they become a full vampirenote  normally.
  • Vampires are not suppose to blood human children; though exceptions are made depending on the circumstances, this is because of how protective people have become of their children in the recent century.
    • Unfortunately this is something Larten is guilty of doing this, having blooded his first and only assistant Darren Shan. This fact nearly ended up costing Larten his life when he returned to Vampire Mountain alerting the Vampire Generals and Princes to what he's done. In the end they only spared him was when his assistant inadvertently gave the Vampire Princes' the idea of giving Darren a challengenote  for Larten's life, something Larten was unhappy about, but allowed his assistant too decide.
      • Despite the case of him turning a child into a half-vampire was ultimately dropped with his life being sparednote  many in the House of Justice believe that he got off too lightly and should receive a actual punishment. Thankfully though Nemesis was able to tell and reveal that he was under the influence of a more powerful being note , thus resolving the issue. The House of Justice though still keeps him under observation though, just in case.
  • Also, has a temple in the House of Other Relatives.
  • Never bring up his movie counterpart.
  • Fully supports Alucard's crusade to free the other vampires following Dracula and has even offered his assistance.
  • Is a little weirded out seeing Dracula in the pantheon, considering that he actually met Bram Stoker and may have helped inspire the creation of the character after Abraham interviewed him and the old Vampire Prince Paris.
  • Sometimes uses the name of his close cousin and adopted brother Vur Horston as a way to honor him after he was murdered.
    • The murder of Vur is also the very event that ultimately led him into becoming a vampire.
  • Doesn't like Arcueid Brunestud, sure she's friendly but the fact that she fed Shiki Tohno another vampire just to be nice disturbs him greatly.
    • It should be noted though that he has no problem with someone let alone humans eating a vampire; just ask The Guardians Of The Blood. The problem came from how it was done.
  • Because he used to work in a freak show with his preforming spider Madame Octa before his death and ascension he can sometimes be seen working with gods related to showmanship like Shakespeare, Oscar Diggs, Zatanna Zatara and Kaito Kuroba.
  • Befriended Arachne, Muffet and Rachnera with stories of his preforming spider Madame Octa. They were; however, disappointed to find out that he no longer has her in his possession since his assistant Darren released her in Vampire Mountain. They were disturbed though to find out that he get Madame Octa to preform by controlling her.
    • Though its unknown if his ability to control spiders will work on sentient ones, it still gained him a surprising amount of fear from Ungoliant and oddly enough Pennywise for some reason.
  • Is hardly ever seen in his temple preferring to travel like the rest of his clan. Naturally he ended up befriending Mercury, Hecate and Yukiko Amagi because of this.
  • Like all vampires from his universe his blood is toxic, must eat normal food; along with human blood to survivenote , are forbidden to use projectile and explosive weaponry. They can also survive in sun light at least for several hours with little discomfort. Wolves, bats and rats also seem to naturally like them while catsnote  and dogs seem to inherently hate them.
    • Though Jake the Dog seems to be a clear exception, probably due to his friendship with Marceline.
  • Befriended Queen Elsa when she heard that he discovered an ice palace. He's since corrected her, for though is was certainly palace like it was actually a frozen tomb for the legendary Vampire General Perta Vin-Grahl. It did however have plenty of ice and crystal sculptures.
  • Being a member of a proud warrior race Larten naturally befriended several other great and honorable warriors such as Conan, Xena, Red Sonja, James Howlett/Wolverine, Aragorn and surprisingly Sora.
  • Nazis once tried to make a alliance with the vampires of his universe, it ended with the Nazis trying to capture vampires, at least until one Vancha March personally went to threaten Adolf Hitler in the dead of the night.
  • Fully agrees with Albus Dumbledore when it comes to his belief of doing things for the greater good.
    • Upon meeting Dumbledore he learned of Harry Potter, who earned his respect and pity for Larten was also part of a rather grim prophecy. He also learned of Voldemort and quickly became his enemy both for his actions and due to his similarities with Nazis.
  • Not even a minute when he arrived in the House of Vampires was he unexpectedly barreled over by an orange pegasus filly on her scooter and then watched as the filly (and her close friends) leapt toward the temple next to his, belonging to a pair of vampire wrestlers. Curiosity came to him as he saw the Crusaders take part in an epic LARP battle with those vampires before it ended with the group laughing. He then introduced himself to the group, and the ponies introduced themselves as The Cutie Mark Crusaders who asked if Mr. Crepsley has met their good friends Mr. Gangrel and Miss Luna. Talks were made, stories were traded and Crepsley has now decided to entertain the ponies (or at least, teach them how to be good entertainers) which has made the ponies absolutely happy. When word got out to their older sisters, they could only groan at how the Crusaders have made friends with another vampire.
    • However, when it came to actually performing in a nightmareish circus, the Crusaders got cold feet. He soon realized that it was related to the last time the three were in a similar circus, it ended with a huge misunderstanding that caused the three to nearly kill all of the circus performers in rage, particularly Apple Bloom blowing a hole in the Ringmaster's forehead (who had Gangrel's face, long story). He's doing his best to ensure that the nightmares they had are gone (which has made the Equestrian Gods more trustworthy of him now).
