Trope Pantheons Discussion

Go To

Welcome to the Trope Pantheons thread! Please read the rules:

    open/close all folders 

Rules. The following are not suggestions or tips, but things that have to be followed:
  • Gods can't be followers or high priests for obvious reasons.
  • When you suggest a God, please explain why they fit the trope. Not everyone is going to understand just "X should be the God of Y because they exemplify the trope" off the bat, especially if they're unfamiliar with the work.
  • No hype profiles, please.
    • So you ask, what exactly is 'hype profile'? It is a profile based on ongoing events that hasn't been around very long, but generates a lot of hype, possibly because of elements such as Wham Episode or Memetic Mutation or Large Ham or overall 'OMGAWESOME!!!' They're all not bad tropes, but building a portfolio solely for that is a bad idea, as they do not say a thing about representing the trope best (unless it's those trope concepts that they are trying to embody for a long time). You can see one if the profile is only showing off how awesome they are or suddenly pushing how 'significant' they are thanks to the just very recent events rather than respecting the longstanding good representations of the trope. And usually having... minimum portfolio or flavor texts and being a bit too generalized or self-contained to events from within their home series instead of interacting with other Pantheon members.
  • The Pantheon is not a mouthpiece for you to voice your opinions on certain characters. You may like certain characters more than others, but don't make the profiles for characters you like look like Character Shilling.
  • DO. NOT. put a link to these Pantheon pages into the main wiki page. The moment you want to add in a main Characters page that the character is a God of this trope, don't do it. If you see leftovers of this practice, do yourself a favor and delete it from that main page. This also goes to the Trivia page. The only exception to this rule is if a page in the Pantheon could be confused for a page in Main, like Good Colors, Evil Colors and Good & Evil Colors.
  • You must use the Trope Pantheons discussion thread in the forums if you wish to add a new deity, story, something else of importance to the Trope Pantheon canon, or reworking an existing deity (be it simply improving their existing profile or changing their title).
    • For new and reworked deities, 3 [tup] means the profile will have a one week waiting period.
    • For new and reworked deities, 4 [tup] is a 3 day waiting period.
    • 5 [tup] is an automatic ascension for new and reworked deities.
    • Speaking of reworks, for anyone that wants to improve such profiles, they have to review the current trope the character(s) has and see if it still holds up or if there is a better rep for their trope.
    • For adding new Treasures to the Treasures or new Dominions to the Dominions, the following rules apply:
      • For new Treasures or Dominions, 3 [tup] is a 3 day waiting period.
      • 4 [tup] is an automatic addition to the Treasures or Dominions.
  • Do not include fan reception in any profiles. It has nothing to do with the character themselves and will create unnecessary conflict.
  • Write a detailed explanation on why the character is the best candidate for deity of that trope. If people disagree with you, do not force it on the people.
  • Keep in mind that if you still want to try to find a trope for a particular character, you're only given three chances on such. If a suggestion goes past three possible tropes, then it will come off as shoehorning a character into the Pantheon just for the sake of that character to be there.
  • Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment ALSO applies here. Do not bring things that would incite fights, even if it is what's currently the hot topic and might be 'urgent'. For example, the political scene and some really bad politicians. We are not here to fight at each other, so don't suggest things that go to that direction.
  • Do not create a trope page for a story until the story is fully completed.
  • Don't repost a profile in the forums more than twice in a day if noticeable changes haven't been made in between. If a profile is posted a third time in a row without noticeable alterations, it will be downvoted. This is so spamming of no-effort profiles is less frequent and to prevent tropers from getting aggravated seeing the same profile over and over. The minimum acceptable change has to be a single flavour text.

    Instructions and Tips 
Here are some tips one should keep in mind when editing:
  • Please use the Trope Pantheons discussion thread in the forums if you wish to add a new deity, story, or something else of importance to the Trope Pantheon canon. You can also get some assistance in the forum thread. Submissions that are added without discussion are likely to be deleted.
  • If the character you are about to add to a House already exists in another, make sure to mention that this god has spots in other houses as well.
  • When writing facts/trivia about gods, try not to contradict what has already been written elsewhere.
  • When writing down the name of a Theme Song, try to avoid calling it "Theme of God X" or "Theme of (Show where God X originates from)". If possible, try to find out if the song has an actual name.
  • When adding an image for your God, make sure that it is not too big unless you wish to write more about the god you have chosen.
  • If you feel the need to remove a god for some reason and replace him/her with another, please see what the other tropers think about this in the discussion thread before doing anything hasty. If you're lucky (and they're from the same franchise), maybe both of them can share the title "Gods of (Insert Trope Here)".
  • Certain tropes can have more than one God. It is not advisable, but it is not forbidden. Just ensure that this second God will bring in new flavor of the trope. If you have doubts on how to bring the other flavors, consult the Trope Pantheon Discussion forum. Case in point: In the original Greek Mythology (and later Roman Mythology), both Ares/Mars and Athena/Minerva share the title of 'God/Goddess of War', and even then, they differ in flavor: Ares is about brutal warfare, Athena is about war strategies and finesse, while Mars took up some of Athena's elements that he kinda differs out than Ares. If the original myth can do this, why the hell not for the Pantheon?
  • Be creative! If you need some time to work out your potential deity's profile, use the Pending Gods or Pending Gods 2 page to get help. Incomplete and/or low-quality entries are more likely to get deleted or replaced.
  • When writing about a God who just happens to be a person in real life, just try to be very careful about what you decide to say. See also the Rules section. Especially the 1st bullet point.
  • All deities should be sorted by their divine ranking. Put Overdeities on the top of the page and Quasideities on the bottom. Also be sure to add them in alphabetical order by their first/given name.
  • Occasionally there will be Gods that carry a title without a trope. This is not forbidden, but it's well advised not to abuse them. Aside from introducing too many niche concepts, there are still chances for new tropes related to your chosen deity's title to be launched through YKTTW...
    • Additionally however, the only house that a tropeless profile are wholly allowed is the House of Food. Mainly due to most food items lacking tropes, and adding tropes about said foodstuffs is slightly unecessary. However, the character being ascended for their choice of a food, or food-related thing must be a decently good representative of said item. IE: Their Trademark Favorite Food, or something that they're closely associated with In-Universe, or both (example: Gangplank and his oranges).
  • Maximum number of tropes what a god should have is three, but don't try to abuse that fact. If you need to use a second trope to specify a certain thing about their position, that can be excused.
  • Some series will eventually have greater representation in the Pantheon than others. This is unavoidable, but a little diversity helps, as well. Try to ensure that if you add a deity from a popular series, make sure that it's because they're a good representative for the trope in question, and not just because they're connected to another deity in their respective canon.
  • As far as deities from actual mythologies (Greco-Roman, Norse, Japanese, etc.) are concerned, try not to replicate the default myths about their characters and use a fictional counterpart instead. In other words, if you want to use the Greek/Roman god Ares/Mars, you can't add him as the "God of War", but you can use him as part of another trope as long as it's a different version of him. For example:
    • Zeus, while having elements of his persona from Classical Mythology, draws more from his portrayal in the God of War Series.
    • Thor and Loki's Pantheon portrayals are influenced heavily by their appearances in their Marvel Comics series.
    • Amaterasu is a woman in her Japanese mythology portrayal, but her Pantheon counterpart is the dog goddess from Ōkami.
  • Don't depend too much on the hype/meme train, don't just jump onto that train willy-nilly in order to put on some events or entry in the Pantheon. It might not last very long or represent the trope best. This is Trope Pantheons, not Trope Hype Train!
  • Unless the character proposed is specifically from the Abridged version, the character should represent the tropes in their canon selves. If they also happen to possess the trait of the Abridged self, good! But otherwise, get the abridged stuff onto just the flavor texts.
  • To prevent any surprising need to rework profiles due to new development, please restrain from ascending gods from a series before the thing is either released or for longer-running series, there is a good enough of a break from story. This also applies to already existing series if there is a new thing coming out.
  • Please be sure to ask in the discussion about what you want to work before making the profile. This is done to see if your proposal is the best representative and so, in case your profile is turned down, you don't waste time writing something that others might not find suitable.
    • In the same vein, if you adopt a profile from another troper, it is recommended that you make an announcement that you have done so on the discussion thread. More often than not, a trope that was reserved for something was given away to someone else.
  • It is much more recommended to word the title like "God of X" instead of "The God that Xs". This will give off the vibe the God actually ruled over that trope instead of just 'did X', giving more credentials to how it's the best example of the trope.

    Divine Ranking System 
  • Rank: This can range from Quasideity, Demigod, Lesser God, Intermediate God, Greater God, to Overdeity, based on representation of power.
    • Overdeity: Omnipotent-level Reality Warpers capable of manipulating the entire universe (or at least the world) at will. Within their own universe they are believed to be omnipotent, or at least impossible-to-completely-destroy embodiments or concepts.
    • Greater Gods: High-level Reality Warpers and that are extremely powerful (capable of destroying or changing anywhere from a large city to a planet at will) and very strong non-reality warpers capable of doing the same thing.
    • Intermediate Gods: Deities at this level are capable of strong but specialized powers such as hydrokinesis, pyrokinesis, etc. without major drawbacks and low level Reality Warpers capable of affecting their immediate area at will.
    • Lesser Gods: Capable of highly specific or little power on their own, or suffer from Power at a Price. However, they may be able to ruthlessly exploit their power or combine it with just being badass enough to make up for it.
    • Demigods: Basically the Badass Normals of the pantheon, making up for their lack of abilities with strength, strategy, and/or planning.
    • Quasideities: Any otherwise normal human, human equivalent, or below without any special powers or training will fall here.

    Deity Template 
Template for adding a new deity:

God X, God/dess of (Insert Trope Here) (Alternate names/Nicknames, Fan Nickname)

  • An image, if possible. Please use official art or a screenshot for a picture.
  • Potential House:
  • Rank: This can range from Quasideity, Demigod, Lesser God, Intermediate God, Greater God, to Overdeity. This doesn't always have to be a representation of power, but it can also represent influence in the Pantheon.
  • Symbol: An image or icon used to represent the deity.
  • Theme Song: Song that usually is used in affiliation with the character. If the deity is a musician, this will most likely be their Signature Song. If possible, give a link for reference, preferably on YouTube.
  • Alignment: Good, evil, neutral etc. Forget about The Great Character Alignment Debate here, the Pantheon is one of the few places where you can assign Dungeons & Dragons alignment to characters that don't have alignment system. After all, the Pantheon is based on D&D.
  • Gender: For Pokémon deities only. Defines the gender of the Pokémon; if genderless, it instead defines what gender they identify as.
  • Ability: Provides the Pokémon's ability. If they can Mega Evolve, the new ability is listed as well.
  • Moves: Defines the four moves used by a Pokémon. A Z-Move may also be listed.
  • Portfolio: Tropes associated with the character.
  • Domains: Things that the character has influence over.
  • Herald: Non-ascended loyal character that is from the same series as the ascended character.
  • High Priest: Non-ascended like heralds, but not from the same series, and can serve as a worthy replacement in case something would happen. They can be served as part-time workers in case the originals are busy with some jobs. Co-Godhood is accepted depending on the approval of the originals, usually if the co-deity is from the same series.
  • Followers: Non-ascended characters that are not part of the Pantheon, but would probably worship this character by the fact that they share the ascended character's trope.
  • Allies: Members of the Pantheon that are allies.
  • Rivals: Members of the Pantheon that are rivals.
  • Enemies: Members of the Pantheon that are foes.
  • Additional Character Relationships: Members of the Pantheon that have various relationships (examples include Enemy Mine, Vitriolic Best Buds, Teeth-Clenched Teamwork, Headbutting Heroes, Friendly Enemy, Friendly Rival, Just Friends, etc.) other than allies, rivals, or enemies.
  • Partner: Defines a partnership with an ascended deity and Pokémon.
  • Respected by/Respects: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon respect or are respected by.
  • Pitied by/Pities: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon feel pity for or find pitiable.
  • Opposed by/Opposes: Not necessarily the same as "Enemies", but this is used for any deity whom the members of the Pantheon directly opposes or is opposed by, regardless of alignment.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Sometimes, the Deities argue over specific themes and philosophies.
  • Add the Intro. The intro is made up of two trivia, the Ascension Text (or just the Ascension) and The Bio. Both are necessary, but which order you use for them may vary depending on the profile in question. It may be better for one profile to have The Bio first and the Ascension second or vice-versa, although for the most part the order is irrelevant:
    • The Ascension Text: This the story of how the character got into the Pantheon and/or was ascended. There are many ways for this to happen. They may be tricked into it or have simply wandered into the Pantheon, they may have had an already ascended character bring them in, they may already be in the Pantheon (via being another deity's Herald or sharing a trope) and got "promoted", or some combination of the above. Anything is possible in the Pantheon, so use your imagination, but try to incorporate their trope into the story, if possible.
    • The Bio: A brief synopsis on the character's backstory. No need for the character's entire life/production history, but just give enough that those who don't know the character can get an idea of how the character works.
  • Now add some random trivia/facts about events/alignments/moments/fights/friendships/relations etc.
  • And some more trivia/facts.
  • And a couple of more.

Since the Seven Heavenly Virtues having Hero with an F in Good didn't pan out, maybe they could have Soft Reboot (their show can be watched independently, without requiring any previous knowledge of its parent show) or Rotating Protagonist (each of their Virtues have their own episode and after their introductions, they share the spotlight). Look, this show might be controversial to some, but I want to know I did everything I could to ascend them.

[up]Can they fit the actual Seven Heavenly Virtue trope?

Reboots nowadays are very controversial. That's unrelated to your question but i wanted to say that.

Go for Rotating Protagonist IF nobody minds

I have no particular tip for when someone is having Writer's Block but i tend to shelve things until an external situation gets me to work the profile again. I tend to get profiles done the moment my laziness is gone.

So i don't know, maybe i could give out one of my profiles since i don't think i will handle them until a while later anyway. Anyone wants to take the FNAF crew from me?

The C'Tan go up today

The C'Tan, Divine Race Of Star Killing (Star Gods, the Ynigr(as a group). Notable members are Aza'Gorod the Nightbringer, Mephet'ran the Deceiver, Mag'ladroth the Void Dragon, Tsara'noga the Outsider, lesser known are Llandu'gor the Flayer, Nyadra'zatha the Burning One and Yggra'nya the World Maker)

  • Date of ascension: 22 July
  • House: Planetary And Celestial (House of Time and Space)
  • Greater Deities (their shards), Overdeities (the original C'Tan)
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (Mag'ladroth), Neutral Evil (Aza'Gorod, Llandu'gor and Mepet'ran), Chaotic Evil (Nyadra'zatha and Tsara'noga)
  • Portfolio: Cosmic Horrors That Feed And Poison Stars, Jerkass Gods, Sufficiently Advanced Alien, Possibly The Oldest Beings In The Galaxy, The Reason The Necrons Are The Way They Are, Reality Warper, Pieces of God, Touch of Death, Eating Souls As Well As Stars, Gluttony As A Fatal Flaw, Also Eats Terror And Life Force, Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu
  • Domains: Terror, Consumption, Stars, Corruption (all of them), Thanatophobia, Death, Scythes (Aza'Gorod), Trickery, Manipulation, Cruelty (Mepet'ran), Technology, Dragons, Mars (Mag'ladroth), Isolation, Insanity (Tsara'noga), Curses (Llandu'gor), Fire (Nyadra'zatha), Creation (Yggra'nya)
  • Interests: H.P Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos (all of them), Medusa Gorgon (Tsara'noga), the House of Flesh Eaters (Llandu'gor)
  • Allies(as a whole): The Old Gods, The Gravemind, The Dementors, Ungoliant, Pennywise, Pinbacker
  • Headbutting Villains with: Apophis, The Grox, Nekron and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction (all of them)
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: The Divine Powers
  • Rivals: Galactus, Unicron
  • Enemies(as a whole): The Necrons, The Chaos Gods (really any living thing in the Warhammer 40000 universe), The Emotions, Lord Death (especially Aza'Gorod), anyone who made a Deal with the Devil and lost, Mata Nui, Ra, Shin, Bro'dee Walker, Rosalina (really any star-based deity), the Life Entity, Utsuho Reiuji, The Chozo, The Admins, Mogo, Robert Capa, Eru Illuvatar, Aslan, The Love That Moves The Stars, The Heroic Protectors of Family, Jean-Luc Picard, Q, James T Kirk, The Doctor, every other soul, star and sun-related god period
  • Before the Imperium of Man, before the Eldar, before even the Necrons were the C'Tan. Entities born of swirling gases and energies at least as old as the galaxy, they feast on the radiation of stars and slowly poison them. Eventually coming across the Necrontyr, they found mass consumption of souls even tastier and tricked them into surrending their souls for metallic bodies and to make war on the Old Ones, in turn gaining more physical forms. However their new incarnation, the Necrons, shattered these star gods into pieces. Though these pieces still possess power and consciousness, and hope to one day gain back their power.
  • Applies to the C'Tan as a whole
    • These stellar predators may no longer be as mighty as they used to be, but are still rightfully feared for their reality warping powers, feasting on stars and consuming souls by the population. The Grand United Alliance of Destruction recognized their destructive potential and were behind their summoning in the pantheon. While they help out Nekron's desire to destroy all life, they have issues in working with the GUAD since if all stars and souls are destroyed they'll starve. For now, they work together.
    • Their desire to extinguish and consume the stars, unfortunately, has a fair number of supporters. Pinbacker has become a deranged supporters and claims that they are "God's angels" who usher in the end times. Robert Capa wonders if they were responsible for his own Sun dying off. The Grox thrive in the radiated, poisoned stars the C'Tan leave behind, though know from what happened to the Necrons to be very cautious about these beings. On the other hand, they know to be cautious about Apophis because while the snake can help take out opposing stellar gods, it won't stop until everything, likely including them, is gone.
    • Said desire gives them a lot of enemies as well, like you'd expect. In their own universe, they have a special hatred for the Warp and its psychic energies. As the Sun's guardian, Ra despises them, as do Rosalina and Utsuho Reiuji given their guardian role towards stars. Bro'dee Walker is diligently working to heal the stars they poison, and this has led them to want to kidnap him for eternally renewing their energy source.
    • Naturally eat away at stars, but prefer souls. And given their power, they want it by the population. And they eat at emotions, primarily gibbering terror. This makes them enemies with the Emotions, and they hunger for Lord Death's soul as well due to how large it is. The Dementors agree with their feeding habits, and Pennywise is deeply intrigued due to his habit of eating people and finding fear a form of "salting the meat". They're competing in the "cosmic consumption" field with Galactus and Unicron. H.P Lovecraft notes they are similar to the Elder Gods of the Cthulhu Mythos, and the Old Gods recognize a lot of similarities between them.
    • The Divine Powers, their plan appeals to them due to the following chart; The cycle of life and death = Krishna's Great Singularity = Inexhaustible supply of reincarnating souls to eat = Returns to the Singularity = Redistributed back for the C'Tan = Rinse and Repeat. Though this alliance is tenuous as their gluttony makes it tempting to simply betray them then and there...and they're the best divinity the C'Tan has gotten along with besides the Old Gods. Eru Illuvatar, Aslan and the Love That Moves The Stars are massively disappointed at them for being depraved representations of gluttony that don't even try to improve themselves and fail to realize the value in sentient beings. Especially Aslan, given star are sentient where he comes from.
    • The Gravemind gravitated towards the C'Tan as well, since it is a malevolent precursor who wants to get back at the universe for its well-deserved downfall by those it abused. On the other hand, another highly evolved cosmic being, Q, considers them disgusting for only caring about eating on a cosmic scale. James T Kirk and the Doctor consider them pretty inferior as far as "superior beings" go, and the Heroic Protectors of Family equate them to the cosmic equivalent of Abusive Parents who want to continue being abusive assholes.
  • Specific to Aza'Gorod
    • Aza'Gorod the Nightbringer is the most blatantly terrifying of the C'Tan. It delights in bringing pain and suffering to life, which is easy to do thanks to resembling The Grim Reaper. In fact it is why sentient beings fear death in the first place, due to mind raping their ancestors. Other grim reapers detest him for this and being a highly sadistic death god, and the Destroyer Deity Beerus considers him to be an unpleasant disgrace to destroyers everywhere. The Death of Final Destination, however, thinks what he does is hilarious.
    • Feels a kinship with Diabolo for their love of inflicting the most primal of fears, as it does Freddy Krueger for spreading both terror and death through nightmares. SCP-106 is happy to join in the fun, as is Deathwing the Destroyer. Voldemort and Ra's Al Ghul consider the Nightbringer to be the premiere reason why death is to be feared and abhorred. It's also believed that the Nightbringer may be one of the three deaths causing trouble for SCP-1440
  • Specific to Mepet'ran
    • Mephet'ran the Deceiver is the trickster of the C'Tan, and it is he who offered the Necrontyr the means to transform themselves into the Necrons. It loves messing with literally everyone it can, even its own C'Tan like getting the Nightbringer to eat other C'Tan. It loves trolling with Yuuki Terumi and least when they're not trolling each other. Sometimes both at the same time.
    • Victims of Mind Rape despite the Deceiver. The Deceiver isn't a fan of whenever "lesser" beings manage to outsmart it. It knows how Doctor Doom has taken power from cosmic beings multiple times, and wants nothing of him less he try to hijack his shards and power. Teridax is interested in hijacking the Deceiver's powers as well.
  • Specific to Mag'ladroth
    • Maga'ladroth the Void Dragon is arguably the strongest C'Tan. It wrecked havoc across the universe, until it was confronted by the God Emperor of Mankind, and the monster was sealed in Mars. It may be the Omnissiah, but most conflate it with the Emperor. The House of Technology is trying to dissuade people from accidentally worshiping this thing, though SKYNET is fond of it as a possible means of destroying all organic life. And AM admires the cruelty of the C'Tan, and wants to work with the Void Dragon to spread misery beyond the Earth.
    • Benevolent dragons aren't a fan of the Void Dragon either. Despite being the mother of dragons, even Daenerys considers it to be an abomination that doesn't deserve to be considered a dragon. The Dovakhiin sees Mag'ladroth as a dragon, but being a dragonslayer that makes the C'Tan a big challenge instead. No-one from Mars likes it either, with J'onn J'onnz always at the ready to stop it from endangering his homeworld or the rest of the universe.
  • Applies to other C'Tan
    • Tsara'noga the Outsider is perhaps the most mysterious of the C'Tan. It was tricked into self-induced exile within a Dyson Sphere, and the experience has driven it gibberingly insane. And it brings madness to all within its vicinity. This makes it an enemy to all deities from Soul Eater, except for two. First is Medusa Gorgon, who wishes to exploit the madness it brings. The other is Kishin Asura, who as a being of madness feels a certain kinship with the Outsider.
    • Of the C'Tan, Llandu'gor the Flayer is the only one to be killed by shattering. In its death, it cursed the Necrons with a Flayer Virus. This led to the Flayed Ones, who have an unquenchable hunger for warm flesh and the blood of the living. It claims influence in the House of Flesh Eaters, and they in turn are interested in its curse and how it brings people to cannibalism. The Flayer is most interested in Piggsy's specific madness. It seems impressed by Demise managed to curse the land of Hylia so his hatred forever troubles the land.
    • Nyadra'zatha the Burning One has long sought to burn down the Webway and beyond. The Necrons used its shards to allow the FTL travel they need. A complete pyromaniac, he tends towards fellow pyros such as Ragnaros, Brand and Surtr. The more benevolent deities of fire look down on the Burning One.

[up]I cannot say about the ones you try to up. But in regards of Aurelion, I'll give you a chance to put my advice in your own words.

But please, CLOVIS. Just answer these honestly:

  • Do you actually play League of Legends, or if not playing it, actually being into its lore? Utterly detailed knowledge are not necessary, but at least knowing the gist of the champion backgrounds or relations.
  • When you upload drafts or suggestion, is it because you are familiar with the franchise and the character or you just want to have a representation of the trope?

Neal George Caffrey/Bennett, God of Putting Himself In The Criminal's Shoes
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His old (deactivated) tracking anklet
  • Theme Song:
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Con Man, Figuring Out Criminal's Actions By PUtting Himself In Their Perspective, Boxed Crook, The Charmer, Full Of Daddy Issues (And Some Mommy Issues), Friend to All Children, Prefers Not To Use Guns, Gentleman Thief And A Scholar, Surprisingly Religious, Martial Pacifist, Master Actor, Sticky Fingers, Passive-Aggressive Kombat, Sharp-Dressed Man, Faking the Dead
  • Domain(s): Cons, Boxed Crook, Criminal Consultant
  • Herald: Mozzie a.k.a. Theodore "Teddy" Winters
  • High Priest:
  • Followers:
  • Allies: Peter Burke, Chuck Bartowski, Leverage Consulting & Associates, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts
  • Rivals:
  • Enemies: All evil-aligned deities in the Houses of Justice and Crime, Light Yagami, Ryuk, Looten Plunder
  • Arrived in the Pantheon sometime after his faked death and a theft at the Louvre. That said, he was lurking around as Sly Cooper's follower, so it took a while before someone connected the dots and reported him to his former partner.
    • As soon as Peter found him, thanks to what he now knows about the Pantheon, he quickly got to work on getting Neal a position. And he found one based on how Neal deducts criminal motivations and how he helped the FBI as their criminal consultant; as a master criminal, he draws from his experiences from that life to deduct what the crooks under investigation would do. And that's the story of how Neal Caffrey became a Pantheon god.
  • Fortunately for Neal, the GUAG can see the goodness in him and won't treat him as a Token Evil Teammate (as a whole anyway; there are those few who won't see him that way). And with the founding of the new Cowboy Cops division, he's certainly found a place there.
  • He's amused with some of the friends Peter's made in the Pantheon, such as the Leverage crew, and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. And they all go after crooks with money and influence to hid from conventional law; the difference is that the White Collar division does its work legally, Leverage swindles a confession out of them, and the Phantoms have supernatural methods, though the last have been learning from the first two. Neal playfully prodded his partner about this (and of his title) for the first few weeks, and has befriended his fellow "criminals" too, even becoming yet another mentor for the Phantoms, to Peter's exasperation.
    • Another "criminal" he's gotten acquainted with was Catwoman, though he's careful around her given her career choices and her complex relationship with Batman. Speaking of him, the Caped Crusader wasn't as trusting of him at first until Peter eased things up between them and assured him that Neal was definitely a good guy.
  • For all his conning, he refuses to make untraceable fake identities, since the only way to make them needs a dead infant's birth certificate.
  • Another person who immediately approached Neal was Chuck, who thought his friend Bryce Larkin had arrived. Despite how different the two actually are (Bryce is a very competent fighter, Neal prefers his wits over combat every time), they managed to get along, and the ex-conman often finds himself being the mediator between his old partner and the INTERSECT bearer whenever they work together.
  • He's good enough with numbers to calculate sixty years of compound interest in two seconds.
  • Distrusts Amanda Waller due to how she keeps her crooks in line, but given what these crooks are capable of, he knows it's not his place to complain.
  • Hates using guns, but is really good at it when he does? How good? he shoots a man in the leg, through Peter's pants, without touching Peter.
  • He cooks, cracks safes, has extensive knowledge of antiquities, can paint, knows multiple languages, and sings old jazz.

The Sinner, Deity of Sentences Longer Than One's Lifespan
Two of their more common guises.
  • Intermediate Deity

  • Followers: Sengoku, Merrill "Benten" Yanagawa, Gabimaru "Gogul" Rikiya, Kanae Kazaki, Leon Garcia de Asturias, Solomon Roka, DuVaul
  • Allies:
  • Rivals:
  • Enemies: Cletus Cassidy/Carnage
  • Fears: Judge Dredd
  • Pities: River Song, Aleph
  • Opposes: Earl of Lemongrab
  • Sentences for crimes usually come in the form of years served in prison/parole, and usually the worst is a life sentence. And then there are cases with sentences far longer than one can expect to pay with their lifespan, sometimes ridiculously so. The Sinner got a million year-long sentence after birth for being a waste of human resources. "Thankfully", doing work for their Panopticon helps reduce the sentence…by tens of years (or tens of thousands of years for particularly hard or important ones). Usually, this work comes in the form of reclaiming kidnapped Citizens, repelling assaults by other Panopticons, scavenging resources, and other such necessities. With such a record, the Court decided to bring them to the Pantheon for such an unbelievable record after their plot (or whatever events remotely resemble it) was resolved.
  • Now that they're finally relieved of service of their Panopticon by way of their ascension, at long last, they have achieved true freedom; they can live however they want, they can keep whatever they want (as long as they can afford it), and there are no restrictions on who they can talk to (though who they wish to talk to still has the right to refuse conversation). Unfortunately, this has also left them at a loss on what to do, having been so used to following orders for so long. Fortunately, the GUAG were the first to approach and invite them to their ranks.
  • While they still have their "Accessories" with them, they're no longer tasked in keeping their Sinner in line and adding/reducing years to their sentence. Instead, they just serve to keep their Sinner updated on whatever current mission they're on, general advice, and companion in battle.
  • The Sinner's weapons of choice are a melee weapon and ranged weapon specialized for taking down large mechs called Abductors. These range from knives, polearms, and brass knuckles for melee to handguns, flamethrowers, assault rifles, sniper rifles, autocannons, and portable artillery. They also have much more durability, agility, and might than an average human to ensure their survival in harsh conditions.
  • Due to their Panopticon life, they treat civilians, especially those who have valuable intel, science skills or are otherwise knowledgable in essential non-combat stuff, with unnaturally high regard, even deeming their safety more important than whatever current mission they're on.
  • Having been subject to a ridiculously long life sentence, they're always on edge whenever Judge Dredd is around; his world's judicial system also delivers long sentences, and unlike their world has very little hope for parole.
  • They know there are others who've had longer-than-life sentences in the Pantheon, and some of them absolutely deserved them, such as Carnage.
  • One of their weapons is the Ibara Hookshot, which was noted to be like the Maneuvering system used by the Attack on Titan deities.

Also, isn't SCP-173 already in the pantheon?

@ Roku: Jacob and Evie could be friends with Ezio's pupil Yoruka Kirihime and her co-teacher Ryu Hayabusa, both in the House of Hunters. Evie could be friends with Princess Zelda, who congratulates her on keeping her brother's aggressiveness on check and steering towards a more positive direction, aside from having the same voice.

@ Nightelf: Neal could try to steal assets from villains' temples in order to make things easier for the GUAG, but he would admit that stealing from the likes of Lex Luthor and Isaac Westcott could be a tall order.
@ Clovis: If the Survivors attempt to improve themselves as people, then the Love that Moves the Stars could take pity on them and give them a happy ending.
If there's no objections, I'll begin working on the Seven Heavenly Virtues.

@Faso and @Master Hero: Okay, I will take Satellite Love Interest for Kotori, then. But Houki and Lingyin should keep their tropes; it's just that their title needs rewording. And yes, go ahead on the Virtues getting Rotating Protagonist, cause I don't mind.

[up] Ooh, I like that idea!

Davekazer probably isn't coming back. Anyone knowledgable in League of Legends, is there any idea that appeals to you and you may want to adopt?

Do we have anyone for Escort Mission? I suggest Peter Puppy, who in his first appearance you have to escort him to his house and if you mess up, he Hulks Out and attacks you. Also appears in a similar mission in the second game. The Gaming House has no candidate for that so far

Is it OK if I changed King Ghidorah's Killed the Dinosaur trope to Civilization Destroyer? Thought it fit better overall all as Ghidorah did destroyed Mars and always attempts to destroy Earth's.

Would anyone be interested in working on Cassiopeia for Snakes Are Sexy or not? Also, is there any trope that you guys think might fit Erazor Djinn?
