Trope Pantheons Discussion

Go To

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

    open/close all folders 

    Rules 
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.

    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 
  • 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.

AMS Agents Thomas Rogan, G, James Taylor, and Gary Stewart, Gods of Narm Charm (Rogan: Eager Eagle, Rowgun, Logan | G: "Agent Gwendolyn", 'Genocide', Silver Fang)

  • Agent G was the first of them to ascend, under the title One-Letter Name, and Isaac was there to greet him with an "About time, motherfucker!" G is just as happy to have his old friend in the Pantheon.
  • Applies to all or some of them:
    • As some of the most famous zombie hunters who ever lived, they naturally don't get along very well with members of the pantheon who have returned from the grave. This can range from mere distrust to outright contempt in the case of Dracula. The House of Vampires and, ironically, the House of Undead have strictly prohibited them from entry out of fear that they'll go on a rampage should they enter.
      • They also hold contempt for those whose experiments make mutants out of the undead, so they especially oppose Albert Wesker, his sister Alex, and their allies.
      • Speaking of the Weskers, the AMS agents occasionally assist Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy, and their friends against those scientists and their Umbrella cronies, providing both access to the AMS database as well as their own skills as an undead creature killer. Once, on a desperate occasion, G even helped Simon Belmont in his fight against Dracula.
      • Dracula's resemblance to G and Rogan's arch enemy, Type-0 "The Magician", has not helped their icy relationship with the vampire. James' run in with the dantean monstrosity Type-β "The World" has also made him suspicious of whether Elsa had any hand in its creation because of its ice powers. They eventually cleared things up with the Arrendellian queen, but cryokinetics are still people they watch out for, especially for James.
    • Technically speaking, save for the events in 1991, Curien's/Goldman's/Thornheart's forces aren't actually comprised of traditional zombies and are likely creations, thus creatures or mutants. For one, they straight up kill people rather than infect them (though some victims do reanimate later). For another, they come in all shapes and sizes, wield weapons and elemental powers, and can even drive cars.
    • Badass Normals par excellence, between the four, they've killed enormous genetic abominations that can shoot fire, teleport, spawn endless electricity, fly, have multiple heads, swim, shoot webs, wield massive weapons, or manipulate ice. All while using only a six shot 9mm pistol, shotgun, or SMG (with Bottomless Magazines). Their colleagues have killed invulnerable giants, shapeshifters, and immortal evolving doomsday weapons while similarly armed.
      • As such, BOWs and the Special Infected are nothing special to them. Not even the Tank is that much of a problem, though Boomer bile might be a mite concerning to deal with.
    • While the specifics regarding the AMS is not known, what is known that it's American-based and is probably outside of other US Government organizations and/or jurisdiction. Still, they're on amicable terms with government agents in the Pantheon such as Shuichi Akai, Tooru Amuro and Rena Mizunashi (FBI, NPA (Japanese National Police Agency) and CIA agents respectively), and will assist them in cases against the Black Organization.
    • Sometimes, during zombie-killing operations, instead of toting guns, James and Gary wear SEGA Dreamcast backpacks and keyboards and attack by typing words. Sometimes, it's a white PlayStation 2 instead of a Dreamcast, or a Mega Drive hooked to a tablet of all things, or even just an iPhone (and no backpack).
      • As for why the hell they even have such things, it's because they're Friendly Fireproof since they don't target non-enemy units. That said, without headshots, it means typing speed is the most important thing here.
    • Because they were used as both the code names and major inspiration for the primary undead strains they've fought, the agents were inherently mistrustful of Tarot cards and such motifs, and are uneasy around Nimue Inwudu and Sartorius as a result. And the Persona casts, who all bear various arcanas. Notably, as of the events of Scarlet Dawn, the Devil is the only tarot card that hasn't been used as the name of any boss they or their heralds have encountered.
      • However, the Magician's ascension and their own repulse in the face of the mutant has changed G's opinion and they decided that cooperation was the better option. They still distrust the Duelist, though, given his tenure under the Light of Ruin.
    • Unlike Rogan, G never settled down and had kids, and thus regards his partner and his wife Sophie as the closest thing he has to a family. During the 1998 Curien Case, Sophie had been gravely injured by the bardiche of Type-27 "The Chariot" and was almost considered dead; as a result, G and Rogan have grown to admire people who stay strong in spite of their disabilities.
    • While not fighting the same foes as V.S.S.E. or the Virtua Cops, the AMS Agents do spend some time collaborating with them given that they're pretty good shots. That said, it also drew the enmity of Wild Dog, and while he won't be working together with most of the AMS Agents' enemies, he can still interfere in their operations as a Wild Card.
  • Exclusive to Rogan:
    • All that's known of Rogan is that he was born on February 9, 1966, eventually joined AMS, and became recognized as its top agent. Although known for being a "hothead", he was distinguished for his courage and keen decision-making. He participated in what would come to be known as the 1998 Curien Case, because his then-girlfriend Sophie was a researcher in the Curien Mansion. Together with G, he put a stop to Curien's schemes and put down his creation the Magician (or so they first thought). Between that case and his next appearance 21 years later in the third game, he had married Sophie (who managed to survive the Curien Mansion incident), and they had a daughter named Lisa, although his relation with her was strained due to focusing too much on work.
      • Eventually, after the collapse of AMS, he determined the source of the apocalypse posthumously organized by Goldman to the EFI Research Facility, and with a secret division of military commandos that he had formed, he staged a raid on the facility. All of his men died, and he almost did too were it not for Dr. Curien's son Daniel. He would be reunited with his daughter and G two weeks later, and while Lisa and Daniel dealt with the Wheel of Fate, G stayed with Rogan to tend to his injuries. At the end of the whole conflict, as the four of them left the facility, when G asked whether this mission would change anything, Rogan — while unsure — optimistically claimed that they had "done [their] part", and that the future was left to people like Lisa and Daniel.
    • As for what Rogan does in the Pantheon, without an AMS to direct them, he leads his fellow members as its most senior agent.
    • As a workaholic who barely had time for his own daughter, Rogan's gotten to know others who've had similar dynamics with their kids. They may or may not have formed an Anonymous Support group.
      • First is Sonya Blade, who had a strained relationship with her daughter Cassie by devoting herself to her job as a Major General and treating Cassie as another soldier and rarely her own daughter. She's trying to move on from this since her husband Johnny Cage became too concerned of this attitude.
      • Second is Ryotaro Dojima, whose relation with Nanako was strained by his fears ever since his wife's death by a runaway car collision, and he frequently took to work to avoid her. Thankfully, Yu Narukami's arrival eventually got these issues fixed up.
      • Third is Bright Noa, whose status as an EFSF naval officer strained his relationship and unintentionally antagonized his son Hathaway, who later became an insurgent in the organization Mufti and got captured. Bright signed the execution order without knowing it was his son he was sending to the firing squad. When he found out, he was so shattered that he resigned his commission.
  • Exclusive to G:
    • Most of G's personal information is unknown, including his nationality, birthdate, and real name. Age-wise, he was approximately 35 to 40 years old in 1998[3] (making him around 50 in 2019, and at least his late 20s to early 30s when he was a rookie in 1991).
      • Speaking of 1991, after his graduation from the AMS academy, Special Agent G was assigned to investigate a missing persons case in Bayou City, Louisiana linked to crime lord Papa Caesar. That was where he met Detective Isaac Washington. They would work together in stopping Papa Caesar, as well as the real mastermind behind the outbreak Clement Darling.
      • His next (or first, rather) known case was with Rogan in the 1998 Curien Case, and then two years later he partook in the 2000 Goldman Case, but ended up grievously injured, forcing him to leave the rest to fellow agents James and Gary, who were supposed to meet up with him.
      • Three years later, he would eventually meet up with Kate Green, who had been James's partner before he sacrificed himself to destroy Type-β "The World", and they would take the fight to the source; a yet-again-resurrected Magician. They would stop him once more.
      • In 2019 in his world, he would partner with Rogan's daughter Lisa as they investigate his old partner's disappearance. Details of that incident can be found in Rogan's section.
    • Ever since his first mission in Louisiana, he's had a taste for sazeracs, and he'll quickly start acting more like his younger, cockier, edgier self after having a few. He also has a taste for country music.
    • An old wound he received from Kuarl of Type-28 "Judgement" acts up from time to time. Luckily, he's always been stoic in the face of pain, and only lets it affect him when he's not on the job.
    • He will never tell anyone what the G stands for… but if you were to guess 'Gangsta', he wouldn't try to deny it.
    • Hates being mixed up with William Birkin, who also goes by 'G' (and is allied with Wesker), But he's on pleasant terms with both Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin.
    • There've been rumors about G having "metallic"-tasting blood and behaving "mechanically". But he assures folks who ask that he's a 100% organic human being.
    • Among the stuff in his part of the temple is Varla Guns's brain. It's true that the Pantheon has means to get her back to her old body, but it's best that a trope be found for her first (whether she's to be a Pantheon deity or just a herald or high priestess).
  • Exclusive to James:
    • Prior to the 2000 Goldman Case, all that's known of James is that he was born around 1965, and that as an AMS special agent, he was known for having a calm composure and a "computer-like" mind.
      • During the 2000 Goldman Case, alongside rookie agent Gary, James was supposed to meet up with G, but due to G's sustained injuries during the battle, they had to take over for him, and worked alongside fellow agents Harry and Amy. After a match with the Magician, and destroying Type-α "The Emperor", they eventually stopped Goldman once and for all. Or so they thought...
      • Three years later, together with rookie agent Kate Green, while gathering intelligence at the agency's European branch office, an earthquake trapped them inside, and creatures began to run rampant once more. Fighting their way back to the Goldman building, after stopping one of his posthumous plans to nuke the world, they then had to confront Type-β "The World". When it eventually proved too tough for SMG bullets to penetrate, James decided to end it with a self-destruct sequence activated by his PDA, taking his own life in the process.
    • Just like with G, James has an old wound (on top of the one he received from Type-0001 "The Star") that acts up from time to time. Luckily, he's able to power through it, and only lets it affect him when he's not on the job.
    • Has been berated for pulling a Stupid Sacrifice when the used his PDA-time bomb to destroy Type-β "The World" when he could've easily thrown it. Even if the Star had injured him and he wouldn't have lived for long, there were better ways to go in front of his partner Kate. They also wondered how the explosion was strong enough to destroy The World yet leave Kate unharmed while she was relatively close by.
    • As an advocate for not giving up hope, he's appalled by the fact that there are folks who explicitly desire to destroy it and sink people into despair. As such, Junko Enoshima is a prime enemy he won't hesitate to shoot on sight.
    • Was once asked if he has miraculous powers from beyond the grave to help his brother Ryan in the mortal realm given that in the battle against Thornheart's mutant The Moon, after Ryan picked up a rebar and jumped from a multiple-stories building to stab the monster without a second thought, lightning came soon after to finish the beast.
  • Exclusive to Gary:
    • All that's known of Gary is that he joined the AMS in 1999, and that despite his inexperience, he put full effort into his job; though his actions were sometimes reckless and concerned fellow agent James Taylor. His first case would be in 2000 alongside James. Nothing else about him since then is known.
    • As someone introduced to the conflicts they're fighting while they were just newcomers to the agency they are working for, out of all the Resident Evil heroes, Gary gets along best with Leon Kennedy.

@Ferot_Dreadnaught His trope was changed, except for the Metal Gear Pantheon page, which I've now corrected.

I guess Gine wasn't really a great example of the trope, understandable.

  • Nicodemus is the leader of The Rats of NIMH, a group of rats that were originally used for experiments at the organization known only as NIMH. These experiments gave the rats a boost in intelligence and later escaped the place, though they had to rely on human technology in order to survive. Mrs. Brisby, who was traveling in search of something that can help her family, came across him and learned about their origins and a plan to leave the farm and live independent lives and was given an amulet by him. The experiments that Nicodemus and The Rats of NIMH went through slowed down their aging process, though he’s very old compared to them, if the long beard and mustache is any indication.
  • Having been accustomed to life in the Pantheon and having grown from her adventures, Mrs. Brisby started to hear of rumors related to Nicodemus still being alive, but had a hard time believing any of them. The rumors persisted for some time and Brisby ended up going on a perilous quest to see if the rumors were ultimately true or not. She ended up finding herself in a setting similar to where she met Nicodemus back then, but there were a few differences she could notice. As she continued on, she ended up finding Nicodemus and was surprised to see him still alive in the Pantheon. He acknowledged that it’s been a while since they last met each other and could tell how more determined Brisby has been since then. Nicodemus then told Brisby that he’ll continue to watch her and those close to her from afar, something that she understood considering the greater dangers that can happen to them in the Pantheon.
  • Brisby’s time in the Pantheon meant that she found a few extra friends that have a close connection to her in some way. She introduced Nicodemus to Fievel Mousekewitz and Thumbelina, two deities that Brisby was acquainted with and befriended. Nicodemus saw in Fievel a strong will that allowed him to get through trouble and get to his family akin to Brisby’s willpower, though seeing a human girl that was smaller than normal was unusual for the rat. Thumbelina was nervous upon seeing what Nicodemus looked like, but Brisby assured her that he meant no harm and in turn, Nicodemus saw Thumbelina as friendly and was sympathetic to what she had gone through.
  • Miss Bianca and Bernard heard about Nicodemus through a conversation with Brisby, who told them about a wise and powerful rat who helped in her journey. One of Bianca and Bernard’s missions required Nicodemus’ help and Brisby was able to get them to his place. The pair didn’t really expect Nicodemus to look the way he did (and Bernard was unsettled by the setting in general), but the rat did find plenty of worth and resilience in Bianca and Bernard, citing a similar desire to help children out of trouble much like how Brisby did for her own. Nicodemus’ advice to The Rescuers proved useful and they’ve come to hold Nicodemus in high regard since then.
  • Basil and Dawson were given a difficult mystery to solve and one of the clues they had led them to Nicodemus’ place. The place came across as unusual to them and both wondered how they were going to solve this mystery with what they have so far. They then encountered Nicodemus, who was willing to listen to what Basil and Dawson had to say about their predicament. It was through them that Nicodemus learned about Ratigan, a devious rat with a selfish desire for power that was very similar to what Jenner had tried to do before. Noticing what Ratigan’s intentions were (alongside his connection to the crime that the detective mice were going after) and how smart Basil and Dawson are, Nicodemus offered his help to the two and after the pair was able to foil Ratian’s plans once more, Basil and Dawson viewed Nicodemus as a valuable ally, with meetings between them occurring every now and then. Ratigan saw Nicodemus as a major nuisance following this and has come up with a number of plans to get rid of him, prompting Brisby, Basil, and Dawson to step in and thwart those schemes.
  • In one of their attempts to take over the world, Pinky and the Brain found a strange passageway that the latter believed would lead them a step closer towards their goal. They ended up finding Nicodemus, who wanted to know who they were and what they wanted with him. The Brain introduced himself and his partner to Nicodemus and told him what the two wanted. Nicodemus mentioned that Brisby told him about the two and the Brain did act friendly around her. Given Nicodemus’ ties to Brisby, the Brain tried to convince Nicodemus to join him and Pinky to take over the world, but the rat mystic refused the offer, citing the repeated failures the two endured and whether or not any harm will come if an attempt does succeed. The Brain was disappointed that someone as valuable as Nicodemus wasn’t going to get involved with a world-takeover scheme, but he and Pinky aren’t all that deterred and have nothing against him given his backstory.
  • Remy the Rat was a deity that surprised Nicodemus in a handful of ways. Remy has spent much of his life in close proximity with humans, has taken up an interest in cooking, a very human activity, and even became friends with a human to the point of improving said human’s life (even if Remy can’t verbally speak to humans). Nicodemus, being someone who would rather not get involved with humans much, if at all, found it unusual that a rat of Remy’s aptitude would take a strong interest in a human activity instead of fending for himself, but understood that Remy meant well and had no malice in the long run. Remy, understanding how hard things have been for Nicodemus, did try to give one of his meals to him, but the old mystic politely declined the offer.
  • While he very much is on amicable terms with Remy, the same can’t be said regarding Twitch. Twitch’s sneaky personality, as well as his habit and expertise in using poison and weapons has Nicodemus worried about what Twitch could do even if he isn’t really evil. The latter’s title of The Plague Rat concerned Nicodemus further, especially regarding the idea of rats being associated with bringing about diseases towards others. The concept of plagues and a quick conversation with Twitch (nothing hostile occurred from either end) resulted in Nicodemus learning about Peryite, a powerful entity who spreads diseases and can transform into a swarm of rats. Nicodemus would want nothing more than to be far away from Peryite as much as possible regardless of the latter’s supposedly polite demeanor.
  • A close associate of his is The Great Owl, who has a similarly aged appearance and helped Mrs. Brisby get closer to finding the answers she was looking for. In spite of his intimidating appearance, he was very much on the side of good. Nicodemus learned of another foreboding owl in the Pantheon, albeit one that was nowhere near as benevolent as The Great Owl in The Grand Duke of Owls. In addition to having a selfish scheme to enact an everlasting night, The Grand Duke is more than willing to harm children simply because they’re threatening to him. Nicodemus made it clear that he has no affiliation with The Grand Duke at all and if that particular owl goes out of his way to harm Mrs. Brisby, Nicodemus will do what he can to help her get out of trouble.
  • While Nicodemus is someone who doesn’t say much about humans in general, the one kind of human that he dislikes at lot are scientists given his background of being an animal used for experiments. Dr. Cortex and N. Brio are two particular scientists that have earned significant ire from Nicodemus. Them having less-than-benevolent goals is one thing, but what truly sickened Nicodemus was how Cortex and Brio (even if the two aren’t really working with each other) specialized in animal experimentation, with their projects resulting in freakish animals as a means to achieve said goals. He later found out that Crash Bandicoot, one of Cortex’s creations, fought back against the scientist and thwarted multiple plans. Even if Crash is eccentric, Nicodemus finds what the Bandicoot did bold (if rather reckless), though he can’t help but suspect that he and The Rats of NIMH wouldn’t have lasted as long as they did if they tried to fight back like what Crash did.
    • On the subject of humans that have experimented on animals at some point in their lives, one particular human that did such a thing has horrified Nicodemus and that was The Ancestor. The Ancestor has done a lot of questionable things throughout his life, including doing experiments on pigs, though when Nicodemus overheard a conversation regarding The Ancestor at one point, there was a story that led to the rat truly despising him. It involved a prophet that tried to warn others of what The Ancestor is capable of and a meeting between the two (following a number of failed assassination attempts by The Ancestor) ended with said prophet mutilating himself and becoming an insane leader of an apocalyptic cult. Even if The Ancestor claims to have regretted his past actions, Nicodemus doesn’t buy into the regret that The Ancestor has and sees him as a human that’s just as bad, if not worse, than the scientists from NIMH.
  • In addition to Crash, there were a handful of other animals that were experimented on that got Nicodemus’ attention. Nezu, a rodent-like creature with heightened intelligence and has a prominent scar on his face due to the experiments he went through, found the rat’s place while going on an errand for someone and while Nicodemus was surprised with Nezu’s job of being a teacher for superpowered humans (and the mere idea of superhumans was something that worried Nicodemus), he came to accept Nezu for who he is and understanding the difference between good and evil humans (regardless of if they have superpowers to begin with). Nezu then showed Nicodemus a few other animals that the former got along with, Caesar and Rowf & Snitter. Nicodemus was sympathetic to the canine duo’s plight and was very curious about everything that Caesar went through, from understanding that not all humans are bad to trying to find a new home as things became dire.
    • Nicodemus’ conversations with these friendly lab animals resulted in him finding out about a couple of these animals that became cruel and vengeful as a result of their experiences. Claudandus was seen by Nicodemus as a worse version of Dragon, a cat that Nicodemus and the Rats of NIMH have known for a while, but the one that was truly condemned by Nicodemus was Koba. Nicodemus had problems with Jenner being untrustworthy, but Koba was someone that took Jenner’s traitorous sociopathic desire for power and amplified to a dangerous degree. Nicodemus was revolted by the bonobo’s actions and how he used his hatred of humans to justify a war that would bring down society. The rat knew that Koba and Claudandus would pose significant trouble and he, alongside the other friendly lab animals, have done their best to make sure the two don’t get far with their plans.

Looking for ideas.

Viki, Goddess of Fast Travel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Viki_SV_6434.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Blinking Rune
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Incompetent Use of Teleportation (usually by sneezing), Teleporting Others to Other Locations (Including Naval Fleets), The Cutie, Cute Clumsy Girl, The Ditz, Wide-Eyed Idealist, Woman in White, Appearing in Almost Every Game in the Franchise
  • Domains: Teleportation, Mages, Women
  • Allies: Jeane, Lazlo, Liberation Army, Fuuka Yamagishi
  • Enemies: Luca Blight, Schrödinger
  • Viki didn't really ascend into the Pantheon initially. Instead, she accidentally teleported there. No one is sure where or when she came from, but she started to stick around the place once she actually ascended.
  • There are some gods who have tried to help her master the Blinking Rune, as it can potentially be really powerful if one would remove the accidents what can happen with it, especially since Viki is actually a good rune magic user. So far, no success has been made regarding it.
  • She understands that there are many goddesses in the Pantheon who sound like her. However, she seems to be most comfortable around Fuuka. Especially since she can help her train her teleport techniques with the help of Juno.
  • Avoids going into the House of Food. The reason being that her accidental teleportations tend to kick in before she can eat anything. One time she accidentally transported away food from so many gods, the place almost fell into chaos. She tends to carry around boxed lunch because of that.
  • No one is sure where she came from, especially since Blinking Rune allows for one to time travel. There was a kid version of Viki at one point in time, but no one is sure if even she is from that point in timeline.
  • Where she is not banned from House of Theater, she is absolutely forbidden to take a role in any play. The cringe from her acting is too much for people to handle.
  • Has a mirror in her possession what allows anyone to teleport around the world without needing to have her around.

I'm new to the ascension and rework thread, and this has nothing to do with the above, I'd just like to say that for someone so prominent to the Pantheon, Cosmos' profile is incredibly barebones.

Since for the rest of the year and beyond we’ll be reworking, can I rework both Frankenstein and his monster because I see their profiles are severely lacking in quality, the former moreso than the later. Just finished reading a graphic novel adaptation of the original novel, if that helps.

I’m trying to search for a new trope for the original Frankenstein considering that I don’t think Madness Tropes fit, as in the novel, Frankenstein was unhinged and blabbering but not straight up insane.

So, choices are Mad Scientist, For Science!, Final Speech (considering most of his novel is him narrating before he died, it’s a given) or Intelligence = Isolation
