Fighting Fefnir, God of Frequent Aerial Fire (Guardian of the Scorched Earth, Model F, Fighter General Fafnir)

  • Symbol: His massive hand cannons, Sodom and Gomorrah
  • Theme Song: Passionate, Scorching Desert
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (formerly Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Benevolent Foes, Loves to Fight, Firing in the Air a Lot, Loves Guns, Playing with Fire, Grappling and Ground Pounding, Facial Markings, Epic Shoulders, Hot-Blooded, Hand Cannon, Armor Phenomenon, Kickass Generals, Praetorian Guard
  • Domains: Combat, Fire, Deserts, Guns
  • Heralds
  • Followers: The Rich Texan
  • Superior: X (robotic father/master)
  • Allies
  • Worthy Opponents: Zero, Cu Chulainn, Ragnaros the Firelord, Undyne, Asura
  • Friendly Enemy: Mistral
  • Enemies: Dr. Weil, Omega, Copy X (his former master), Elpizo, Prometheus and Pandora, Hexxus, Deathwing, The Grox, Sakazuki, Enel, Lurerre the Abysroid, Lagiacrus, Davy Jones, Gohma Vlitra, Fenrir, The Corpus, Sombra, Amélie Lacroix/Widowmaker
  • Fighting Fefnir, alongside his brothers Sage Harpuia and Hidden Phantom and his sister Fairy Leviathan, is one of the Four Guardians. Born out of X's own robo-DNA, he would serve and protect Neo Arcadia on the ground as the commander of the Jin'en Army, AKA the Scorched Earth Squadron or Army of Ash Flames. Between Harpuia and Leviathan, Fefnir's always been the Hot-Blooded one roaring for a challenge. And with the Pantheon full of great fighters, he can't wait to test his mettle.
  • Though ultimately a good person, for a while Fefnir served Copy X, making him an accessory to Reploid oppression. He became suspicious of Copy X when he had Dr. Weil as an ally, and has completely rejected his former master after he ordered a missile strike on a human residential area. Long after his death, Fefnir's spirit survives in the form of Model F. Though pleased by use of it, he was infuriated to learn it was being used by social darwinist Atlas, all in part of a scheme organized by Biometal W aka his immortal enemy Dr. Weil.
  • Though most of his siblings enjoy a good fight, it's Fefnir above all of them who lives for the thrill of battle. While Zero will always be his worthiest of opponents, Fefnir has enjoyed a number of fights he's had with the likes of Ragnaros and Cu Chulainn where they tested who's fire is mightier and whether rifles beat spears respectively. He's had particular fondness fighting Undyne, who shares a lot with Fefnir. Once fought Asura, though Asura beat him handily. Fefnir is training for a rematch. Being a combat-oriented robot, he gets along with Android 16. You can usually catch the two sparring with one another, to better improve themselves.
  • As head of the Scorched Earth Squadron, it's his duty to patrol the desert wastelands to take out enemies of the state. He used to have the mummy-like Anubis Necromancess to help him out, but after his death Fefnir's being trying to hire some of the other gods. Traveling to the desert, he found another Anubis, and another mummy in the form of Anakaris. Together, the three protect the desert regions. In general, he feels more at home in the House of Earth and Metal. Gaara has been good help in his visits there, while Dune and Admiral Akainu have given him trouble. In particular, Fefnir loathes Sakazuki for his perversion of justice, which comes off as an even more evil take on Copy X's own aggressive judgements.
  • Like Leviathan and Harpuia, his initial reason for being is to help clean up the Earth after the Elf Wars. As an environmentalist when the world needs it most, you can bet that Captain Planet, the Lorax and Viridi like him and Hexxus hates him.
  • The Grox find him a pest; they've struck a deal with Dr. Weil and Deathwing to "renovate" the Earth, and they're being fought off by a robot that can withstand locations inhospitable to most life. He dislikes Gohma Vlitra; aside from considering it a mockery of environmental protectors, Gohma hates Reploids for their actions during the Elf Wars contributing to Earth's ruined state.
  • As apparent with his gun, he is a rifle expert. He's particularly fond of Firing in the Air a Lot, bringing down a rain of fiery projectiles. When he's really serious, he'll transform into his Armored Phenomenon Form, a living tank. Because of his fondness for guns and Hot-Blooded personality, Fefnir got along amazingly with Yoko Littner. Fefnir ended up liking her friend Kamina even more.
  • Has been checking out Seras Victoria, showing off his own gun Sodom and Gomorrah. It's unclear whether Fefnir is hitting on her, or is hot for her weapons. Either way, bitches love cannons. He's also gotten Blastoise's help in order to cover each other's elemental weaknesses.
  • Has a love-hate relationship with the House of Fire and Electricity. Yes, he utilizes fire, but there also lies electricity, his weakness. In particular, this puts him at odd with Enel. He did get along with Johnny Blaze though, as neither are lenient towards evil.
  • Naturally, Fefnir doesn't like to get close to the House of Water and Ice. The last time he visited there, his boat ended up being sunk by Davy Jones, and he was stuck having to fight against Lagiacrus.
  • It's a bad idea to confuse Fefnir with the similarly-named Fenrir. That psychotic wolf is a threat to Neo Arcadia and the world at large, and the Reploid will not abide by such a threat. Also, while it won't piss him off, he's sick of the House of Dragons mistaking him for Fafnir. True, X named him after the legendary dragon, but it's only because he likes the name.
  • Along with Phantom, Fefnir's been kept up to date about Harpuia's pro-Reploid alliance with Epsilon, Ciel, and Green Biker Dude, including their turn into a public full-on robot resistance group which had been hastened to keep up with the surge of Maverick activity in the Pantheon. Taking Harpuia's advice, he talked it through with his comrades in Earth and Metal, who gave their blessing, before joining the team and reuniting with his brothers. He later saw non-Reploid members come into the group and be granted failsafes against the Sigma Virus, starting with the anti-Shadow weapon Labrys and the Murakumo cyborg Lambda-11; then, after the group went public as Liberion Arcadia, continuing with the YoRHa 'droid 2B, the battle scout robots Quote and Curly, the metagame cyborg girl ICEY, and 2B's partner 9S.
    • Aside from their mission to stop the GUAM, the team have gotten into skirmishes with the likes of The Corpus, as well as Desperado's Winds of Destruction. His trope-seating habit of Firing in the Air a Lot came in handy as Anti-Air to intercept the bombs Mistral would make of her Dwarf Gekkos. Usually she'll draw him into Trash Talk where she dares him to keep up, with some undertone of hot-and-cold flirtation sneaking in.
    • In another incident, Talon's Wild Card Sombra tried to hack into everyone's systems, which caused 9S to hack her cybernetics, provoking a fight between LA and Talon. At one point GBD's Ride Chaser Cheval was shot in a critical spot, later blowing up when GBD tried to fire out of it. Fefnir discovered the sniper Widowmaker as the culprit and tried to shoot her himself, but she evaded that fireball. He wants to get her back for hurting his partner.
  • After that, 9S helped Leviathan ascend, finally getting her out of Harpuia's temple to join her fellow Guardians on the team. Since then she started coming up with nicknames for everyone on the team, though Fefnir wouldn't let her get away with giving herself the most flattering nickname. His push to call her "water freak" instead of her suggested handle of "water queen" was approved by the others.
    • Leviathan's ascension did come with one unfortunate side effect; Atlas was able to use some immortal Reploid DNA to force his way into joining Anubis and Phoenix Magnion as Fefnir's heralds.

  • Odd Friendship with: Death
  • Special Relationship with: Lancelot du Lac (Her "father")
  • Fan of: Sherlock Holmes
  • Complicated Relationship with: Sir Galahad
  • Inheritor of Lord Camelot, a shield capable of blocking nearly everything as long as it's holder's heart is steadfast. The shield is second to Artoria Pendragon's Avalon which was able to defend against Gilgemesh's Ea. It's owner, Mashu Kyrielite, was ascended to the pantheon after blocking Demon King Goetia's Ars Almadel Salomis to protect her Senpai but at the cost of her life.
  • Plenty of people have messed up pronouncing her name and how to spell it. Got so bad that some have gone far and call her "mash potato" out of frustration.
  • Mash soon crossed paths with the Master of Chaldea, much to their mutual excitement and happiness. Mash is loyal to her senpai and is happy she can fight alongside them in the Pantheon, promising to stay by their side and be their shield. The Master in turn trusts Mash very much and she is the Servant they are the most happy to see. Mash is also happy to see Leonardo da Vinci in the Pantheon, though she was initially confused to see him with a male body.
  • Got a chance to meet with both Shirou Emiya and Rin Tohsaka, the former masters of Artoria Pendragon and EMIYA. While Mashu had seen Rin's face in Ishtar, it's only seeing her with Shirou did she realized that the two resembled her Senpei. She even ask the two if they had children, causing the two to blush madly.
    • Also quickly got to meet Sakura Matou, the master of Medusa and the vessel of Parvati and Kama. Mash quickly became friends with Sakura, and learning of her story allows her to understand why she was chosen by Parvati. Sakura in turn saw Mash's feelings for her senpai, and helps to encourage her in her pursuit.
    • Soon crossed paths with the Kaleid Liner trio, albeit the alternate versions. Nevertheless, Mash got along with the three quite well, showing interest in their adventures as Magical Girls and being quite honored to fight alongside them as Servants.
  • Quickly befriended Sieg, since they were both artificially made for a purpose related to the Holy Grail War. They both symapathize with their origins and get along very well because of it. They're also willing sacrifice themselves for the person they love most (Sieg for Jeanne, Mash for the Master of Chaldea).
  • Has fought with and against many deities here who have become Heroic Spirits. She was happy to see many have made it here and is hoping to fight along side them again.
  • Has very special relationship with Lancelot du Lac in that the two are father and daughter via her being bonded to Galahad. While the two do care for one another, their relationship is a bit shaky. It can be best described as "a daughter embarrassed of her father and a father not knowing how to deal with his daughter".
  • Has look to other shield wielding deities as inspiration to further better herself. In respect, she addressed them as her senpais. Even as young as Steven Universe.
    • Speaking of which, Steven is willing to train with her to help improve their skills with a shield and the special abilities that come with it. Steven's kindness also allows him to quickly become friends with Mash as they train together.
    • While she is at first stunned by Naofumi's abrasiveness, she can quickly tell he's a good person, especially after she heard all of his good deeds from his companions Raphtalia and Filo. Naofumi is willing to spar with her to test the limits of their shields and see which areas need to be improved upon.
    • Both Mash and Maple get along very well, considering how they mainly focus on defense. Maple shows admiration for Mash's determination and how it powers her shield, while Mash admires Maple's expertise with her defense as well as the skills she uses with them.
    • Captain America is probably the Shield-bearing hero that Mash respects the most, due to his leadership and how well he can use the shield in combat. Captain America also shows great towards Mash's capabilities with her shield and respects her heroic spirit.
  • In one Halloween event, Mash was force into a very revealing costume dubbed "Dangerous Beast". This garner many of admirers in the pantheon with many photos taken of her. Though, those pictures mysteriously vanish thanks to a berserking black knight.
  • Has been getting along very well with Rei Ayanami as the two learned that they were each specifically design to house a unnatural being in themselves. They also bonded over that they each have a special someone that they would do anything for.
  • Seems to have a special aura that cause many Cool Big Sister types not help but fond over her. This embarrasses Mash greatly. Especially when some, like Erza Scarlet, can't help but get a bit to physical which cause plenty of "mashing".
  • She greatly respects Fiore and Caules as Masters who fought in a Holy Grail War, and the siblings are also respectful of Mash for her loyalty and achievements under the Master of Chaldea. Mash is willing to help Caules with his magic training under the Master and help him to learn how to better protect himself and his sister.
  • She also highly respects Solomon, who also happens to be her Master's mentor Dr. Romani Archaman, even if she does tend to point out his various flaws. She is quite happy to see him again in the Pantheon, after he sacrificed himself to help her Master stop Goetia, and Solomon in turn promises to help her in her time of need.
  • Her relationship with Galahad is complicated, since despite being the source of her power and keeping her alive, he is willing to withdraw his power from her if he deems her not worthy of his help, to the point the Master has to rely on a Command Spell to force him to cooperate. She's even willing to stop him if he tries to use her body to do something she doesn't want to do. Galahad makes it clear he will continue to defy her and the Master at every turn due to them stopping Goetia's plan.
    • Being a vessel for another's soul just like her, Byleth quickly grew to befriend Mash, sympathizing with her over how they were created to host someone else's soul and be empowered by them. They also were emotionless before their bonds with other people helped them become more emotional over time. Mash comes to see Byleth as her sensei, while the latter comes to see Mash as another to guide and protect.
  • Mash is on guard after reuniting with Goetia in the Pantheon, especially since it took her sacrificing her life to save her Master from him. Mash promises to put a stop to Goetia if he ever tries to create his world again, since hardships are what make people strong and bring them together.
    • Because of Goetia's actions and goals, Shielder has fought against other bringers of destruction such as the Anti-Monitor, King Ghidorah, and Deathwing the Destroyernote , as well as those who want to make the remake world in their image at while subjugating life, such as the Vex and the Harbinger. Mash is searching for allies to help her fend off these foes and stop them before they bring ruin.
    • Tiamat is also one of the Beasts the Chaldea fought in the past. Mash strongly opposes her not only for goals to regress humanity to make them her children, but for also killing many of her comrades and injuring her senpai in the process. Despite her faith in the Master, she is one of few disagrees that Tiamat will listen to reason.
    • Kiara Sessyoin, as Beast III-R, once fought against the Chaldea organization, so Mash understandbly opposes her when they meet again. Although the Kiara she met is less destructive than the Beast, Mash still opposes for her Lack of Empathy towards human beings and finds her lust for humanity and pain very creepy.
  • The Marauders found their match in Mash when both sides discovered the other's skill in defense. Mash does sympathize with their circumstances, but still knows how dangerous and will not hesitate to help her allies put them down. Knowing just how tough their shield is, Mash has them attack her first so her allies will take advantage the opening they make.
  • Father and the Homunculi (with the exception of Greed) became very personal enemies of Mash, considering that they're evil artificial people that treat natural and artificial life as expendable. Mash does sympathize with Gluttony and Sloth since they're the least malicious of the Homunculi loyal to Father, but still won't hesitate to fight them if they hurt her friends.
  • While Mash is a Nice Girl to everyone but Lancelotnote , unless someone flirts with her Master, there are some people she truly cannot stand at all for just how evil they are:
    • Zamasu for his genocidal hatred towards mortals, his Moral Myopia, and his pettiness towards Goku. Zamasu in turn sees her as an abomination for how she acquired her powers (despite also being a fusion) and claims that as a mortal, she should be killed for the sake of salvation. All Mash has to say is to call him out on his self-righteousness, claiming all mortals are evil when he never even tried to look for the good in some of them, and committing sins that are far worse than any mortal he condemns for. She even asks what him what he intends to do once he wipes out every mortal and is the only one left, considering the world can't last with only one person no matter how powerful they are. Zamasu's only response is "YOU WOULD DARE SUBVERT JUSTICE?!", to which Mash can only give a sigh of resignation at how hopeless Zamasu is.
    • Malty Melromarc is probably one of the few people Mash has outright contempt for due to how she gleefully ruins lives For the Evulz and out of petty spite. Mash outright calls the corrupt former princess a pathetic excuse for a human being, lampshading how she's her own worst enemy due to never truly learning from the consequences of her actions and thinking she get away with it all.
    • Dante, Gold-Toothed Doctor, and Shou Tucker prove themselves to be easily the most vile humanity has to offer. Mash personally loathes the three for the way they treat people, Dante through her abuse of her Homunculi "children", committing atrocities in name of her immortality by stealing people's bodies, and for planning to rape Edward Elric as soon as she stole Rose's body, the Gold-Toothed Doctor for his immoral experiments and raising children to become disposable soldiers (even turning the remaining Fuhrer candiates into mindlessly obedient Elite Mooks), and Shou Tucker for irreversibly turning his family into tortured chimeras. Because of this, Mash has no intention of letting them get away with their crimes.
    • The Demi-Servant shows outright disgust for Shinji Matou's sexual abuse of Sakura and what he attempted to do to Rin. Mash doesn't even hesitate to call him a loser like everybody else does, and that's actually because of his cruelty rather than his ineptitude. She makes it clear that his circumstances do not justify or excuse his actions, since he takes his pain on other people who suffered just as much as him, yet treated other people far better than he ever did.

  • Negotiable Pact With: Grand United Alliance of Good
  • A mysterious man with even dark secrets, Grøh usually keeps to himself and operates either on his own or with a select few members of the Aval Organization, determined to eliminate "outsiders" in order to secure peace and stability to the world. These "outsiders" were actually Malfested, individuals who were corrupted by the power of Soul Edge, driving them into murderous insanity and undying loyalty towards the Azure Knight. Unfortunately, Grøh has terrible luck, he encountered the Azure Knight, Nightmare and was almost killed and the altercation resulted in Grøh becoming the very being he hunted. He hid it very well from his supporters... until one of the Aval Organization's scientists, Azwel betrayed the group and corrupted Grøh's close friend, Curtis into Malfested, forcing Grøh to kill him. Since then, Grøh has become very embittered and has developed a harsh enmity against Azwel, who went on to establish the Qualifiers to pursue gaining godhood whilst using his falsified charm and fabricating a approachable story about guiding Humanity to gain followers.
  • During a recent investigation of Astral Fissures, Grøh detected something incredibly strange about it. One of the fissures was emitting a very strong aura unlike any other. When Grøh and his two close companions, Dion and Natalie began to approach it, they encountered what appeared to be a hybrid between man and beast. Grøh and his allies manage to kill off most of them and drive the rest away back into the fissure. Turns out, they had discovered a portal to a new world. The three decided to enter for further investigation, where they realized they were in a new world, one where numerous individuals from different worlds have joined with and against one another in a locked battlefield.
    • In time, Grøh also uncovered that Nightmare also resided in this world and quickly deduced that there has to be Malfested here as well. He was correct when him, Dion and Natalie were attacked by a horde of them. They were able to fend them off whereupon they encountered Siegfried, who told them that they are now in a Pantheonic plane of existence.
    • In a short while, Grøh met Cloud Strife who decided to hang out and spar with him for a while. The two clashed blades to demonstrate one's strength, ending with the two of them becoming friends and forming an alliance should they need each other. As a result, Cloud relinquished his dual position of BFS and Bifurcated Weapon by presenting the latter title to Grøh whilst holding on to the former. Grøh is now satisfied to be a part of the Pantheon; now that the presence of Malfested is also in this world, Grøh will be making sure to defend the Pantheon from them and Nightmare... lest Azwel also finds a way to enter.
  • While he genuinely works for the greater good and will help out when its necessary, Grøh is independent from the numerous Pantheonic factions, normally just keeping things to himself, and with only Dion and Natalie keeping close tabs with him. He knows that his actions align close with the Grand United Alliance of Good, but he feels like his Malfested state can backfire on them horribly if here were to be a member, hence his reluctance to join them.
  • Although he is independent, Grøh gets along pretty well with Siegfried and sympathizes with him as both of them lost loved ones due to Soul Edge. He has a rather Odd Friendship with Cassandra and they're currently the leading opponents of any Malfested in the Pantheon. However, he has difficulty working with Sophitia. Grøh is ruthless and more than willing to kill his enemies, especially Malfested to ensure safety, but Sophitia's kind and warm heart, in addition to being blessed by the Greek Gods allows her to reach out and purify a Malfested from Soul Edge's influence, restoring them to their normal state. She disapproves Grøh for slaying those that can be saved without them dying, but Grøh assets that she can't always be there on time to save their soul without death being the only option. That aside, they will work together against Nightmare and his allies.
  • Because of his indomitable will to suppress his Malfested powers and to ensure that he manages to keep his race safe, Grøh earned the respect of Lucifer and offered him a position for the Grand United Alliance of Chaos. Grøh sharply declined, telling him that he works under his own accord and that he cannot bring himself to join a large organization for his own reasons. Since then, Lucifer has been trying to make plans to get Grøh to his side, though his stubborn nature is tough to get past.
  • Grøh has ties to King Arthur, in the sense that the king's dying words were to encourage his followers to protect the world from Soul Edge and this is where the Aval Organization originated from. When Grøh finally met Arthur in person, he admitted to slipping up and feels bad about his friend Curtis. King Arthur was quick to forgive him and has said that regardless of his failures, Grøh was still a dedicated man. By proxy, Grøh also made quick associates with Saber, whom he would fight against occasionally to hone his skills. He expressed interest in the Holy Grail War for a moment before Saber told him that what she went through and the dangers that come from pursuing the Grail War may be too costly for him, not to mention Grøh is already associated with another large conflict involving Soul Edge.
  • Because of his experiences with Azwel, Grøh is generally wary of scientists, though he does know that there are good ones who use their scientific knowledge to good effect. But for the likes of someone like Ryoma Sengoku, Grøh gets very easily alarmed and thinks that Ryomu is not much different from Azwel in their ultimate goals. As a result, Grøh hates and opposes Ryoma and every time they encounter one another, Grøh isn't going to hesitate in cutting the amoral scientist down.
  • He gets along with other solitary heroes like Jason Todd and Spawn, all of them not being afraid to brutally kill their enemies at any given points. The three of them have stated that while they are not members of the GUAG, they are more than willing to help them out at critical situations, plus Grøh is already preparing plans to present the GUAG classified information about astral fissures in the Pantheon.
  • Grøh suspected that astral fissures are in the Pantheon, considering Nightmare has marked his presence there already. He wasn't wrong; wormholes developed by the evil sword was unleashing a swarm of ravenous beasts, including the Beastmen, which reminded Grøh of those that he had killed before entering the Pantheon. He soon met Khazrak who soon engaged Grøh in a fierce battle, culminating in the Beastman leader declaring him a Worthy Opponent. This did not become mutual for Grøh after realizing what kind of race the Beastmen were. Grøh has since made it clear that the Beastmen aren't any different from Malfested, except because of their tainted souls since their birth, they will always be bound to evil and hence, they were worse.
    • The Beastmen weren't the only beings that the astral fissures were unleashing, something which Grøh anticipated. That said, he did state that something far worse can come out of it, and that everyone should immediately take arms and start preparation. He may be needing more help than he would ask...
  • Became enemies against Sephiroth after he interrupted a training session between Grøh and Cloud. After a brief skirmish, Grøh learned more about the One-Winged Angel and pitied him to some extent, thinking that Sephiroth, for all his unforgivable actions was a victim to unfortunate circumstances that couldn't be helped.
    • Speaking of which, Grøh has a deep seeded contempt for Sephiroth's father, Professor Hojo for what he did to his wife and son, completely disregarding them and not facing responsibility for all the actions that he played a hand in. Grøh declared him to be just as bad as Ryoma and Azwel because of this and has taken arms against Cloud in regards to combating against him.
  • He is a visitor of the House of Friendship, which is surprising, given Grøh's general demeanor. Turns out Grøh attends the House to pay homage to his friend and comrade Curtis, who was manipulated and turned into Malfested by Azwel, whom Grøh was forced to kill. Because of this, he is welcome to attend the House of Friendship out of respect. Because Grøh remains silent and doesn't like to talk about the experience, its Dion and Natalie who take it upon themselves to explain his reasons.
  • Grøh vehemently opposes tyrannical rulers like Master Bison and Shao Kahn because of how they constantly profess their god complex, which reminds Grøh of Azwel. Luckily, he's found an ally in Scorpion, himself someone who was driven by vengeance and hate and is willing to give Grøh assistance.
    • Because of events that have gradually softened him up Scorpion often hangs out with Grøh to teach him humility and compassion. Not that Grøh isn't capable of showcasing them, as he clearly has good intentions and has allies he is concerned about, but Scorpion thinks that Grøh needs to allow himself to be more expressive and hopeful about life. Recalling the time when he was bought back to his senses sometime after losing himself, Grøh has conceded.
Do not hold back! However I will...

  • Worthy Opponents: Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Mana Tatsumiya, Hawkeye and Green Arrow
  • Ascended to the Pantheon after aiding 'The Underground' in overthrowing the totalitarian Tetragrammaton Council.
  • While Preston did not create the Gun Kata, he is indeed the master at it. A ballet of death, to be precise. To quote Vice-Counsel DuPont: "Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire." In layman's terms, Shoot where the enemy should be standing when they're aiming at you, and to not be where standing where the enemy is trying to shoot back.
  • While Preston is prone to showing emotions from time to time, he's usually emotionless, as it helps him to concentrate more.
  • Jill Valentine, Johnny Cage, and Cassandra Cage sought out Cleric Preston to learn Gun Kata from him. In Johnny's case, it's for his latest film project. For Jill and Cassie, they both want to improve on their respctive firearms techniques. While Johnny learns from Preston, Cassie and Jill learned from Preston's high priestess, Violet.
  • For some odd reason, Lord Eddard Stark reminds Preston of his deceased comrade, Errol Partridge.
  • Balalaika of Hotel Moscow was unimpressed with the former cleric, until he proposed a test of skill. Fortunately for Balalaika, her men was wearing body armor...and Preston wasn't going for headshots.
  • Revy, the ascended member from Lagoon Company, had been present when Preston had blasted his way through Balalaika's elite troops. After watching the gun kata in action, she is seriously considering taking lessons from the former Cleric.
  • Because of his uncanny resemblance to Bruce Wayne, Preston gets strange looks from Bane, Ra's and Talia Al Ghul.
  • Despite being rivals, Coyote Staark is on somewhat good terms with Preston. So much so that Staark has Preston to teach the gunkata class on occasion.
  • Judge Joseph Dredd is Preston's chief ally. Seeing as how Preston's job as a Grammaton Cleric didn't pan out, he's considering offering Preston a job with the Judges. If Preston is as dangerous with his dual guns, imagine what kind of damage he can do with. Lawgiver...

Lu Lingqi, Goddess of Dual-Ended Spears and Wielding Large Weapons One-Handed
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lu_lingqi_4687.jpg
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her crossed pike
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Impossibly Cool Weapon, wielding a rather large weapon one handed, Surpisingly Loyal To Her Father Despite His Reputation, Spinning Her Weapon at lot, Bifurcated Double Weapon, Throwing her weapon and controlling it remotely Blood Knight, Has issues with being left alone
  • Domains: War, Combat, Weapons
  • Followers: Kisame, Zabuza
  • Allies: Lu Bu (her father)
  • Rivals: Guan Yinping, Ina, Xingcai
  • Enemies: Cao Cao, Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei
  • Odd Friendship with: Mithra
  • Ascended after her father gave her his old weapon finding it less effective than his halberd. Using this opportunity to impress her father she quickly mastered the weapon with one hand. Lu Bu reluctantly had to accept her ascension though he was proud of her nonetheless.
  • She has never met Diaochan mostly because her father is surprisingly cautious about letting the two meet.
    • Some people theorize that they're not actually related; history via confirming someone else to be Lu Bu's wife can back this up.
  • Lu Bu cares very deeply for her. Even if you have managed to have him restrained, should you try to kill her, he will break out and kick your ass. Cao Cao learned that the hard way.
  • She planned on challenging Asura, in an attempt to regain her father's honor and somehow though he casually ignores her challenges mostly because she sound a bit like his own daughter. Not to mention he'd like to not be so hypocritical.
    • She managed to befriend Mithra after said encounter.
  • Her loyalty to her father reminds some of Mr. T of his devotion to his mother.
  • A big mystery is how the hell she managed to wield that weapon of hers so effectively with one hand. Then there's the question on how she managed to control it like a remote boomerang despite having no Psychic Powers.
  • Was surprised when first entering this house when she thought she heard her father but instead met Algol, this maybe due to the fact that he sounds like her father, though it was a strange encounter Algol has decided to have her under his protection due to his respect for The Mighty Lu Bu.
    • Often is worried about the relationships and rivalries between her father, Leo Whitefang and Ira Gamagoori. It doesn't help in that she hears her father's Japanese voice from three sides at once. Huang Gai, another person who also has that very voice, has stated that he himself would rather leave Lingqi alone during those moments.
  • Like her father, her surname is actually pronounced "Leer/Lur" in pinyin due to the double-dot tone (AKA the umlaut) above the "u". Thus, her name is pronounced as "Ler Lee-ng-chee".
  • Has gotten some looks from other people due to her attractiveness; other female gods will have to prepare for the day to teach her how to act like a more proper lady.
    • Some people are also noticing that unlike her father, Lingqi seems more civil and less willing to act like a beast on the battlefield. Perhaps it's because of this she may need to learn how to keep Lu Bu in check occasionally. Xingcai can relate.
