Overview

"…And so, the Gods emerged from the Aether, as they came down to form paradise. Just as a sculptor brings forth their masterpiece from a lump of clay, the divine touch of the Gods brought forth paradise from The Void. Each God played a pivotal role in creation, blessing us with many gifts…and necessary evils. We give ourselves to the Gods, appeasing them in the hopes that they may continue to bless us with yet more gifts, and usher in eons of prosperity to come. "

In the beginning, The Backrooms were home to many powerful beings, each commanding an aspect of reality. They were as close as family, but that all changed after humans first entered The Backrooms. These companions had reigned as a pantheon of gods over the humans, until they were overthrown and their alliance was fractured. Today, many of the "gods" are corrupted, dead or isolated, but they may soon be reunited against a force which threatens their entire home, and all its inhabitants alike.

The Pantheon is one of the more esoteric interpretations of the Backrooms, shedding light on its metaphysical nature and the forces at work behind it. At the center of its narrative are an ancient family whose relationships with each-other transcend time and space. Although this story may be one of Gods, there is an undeniably human element to it. Its themes are of legacy, purpose, betrayal, heartbreak, reconciliation, and more.

The Pillars and their Avatars

Kuri'mas

Creation

Val

"I just hope these people can experience what I never got: acceptance."

Val was once a human who was suffering through a world that wanted them dead, before noclipping into the Backrooms at age 18 and being crowned an Avatar of Kuri’mas. They had spent years not knowing the circumstances of their new power, leading to tragic accidents that caused them to isolate for three years. Despite the unimaginable hardships they've been through, they have moved past their struggles and repaired what was lost to them. They now watch over Level 304, reforming it in the hopes that it may become a safe haven to all.

CURRENT STATUS: Alive
ASSOCIATED LEVEL: Level 304

Destruction

Null-06

"His path of destruction knows no bound nor limit, as the very stars tremble in fear before him."

Singularis was the living embodiment of destruction, standing as the Foe of Creation. Despite his seemingly dichotomous and intelligent mind, he frequently fell prey to vices of wrath. As such, he opposed the rest of the Pantheon’s desire to create their paradise. This ultimately led to a battle with Claudius, in which he was slain and collapsed into a black hole. A statue in his likeness resides in The Grave.

Xal'kyrai

Chaos

Kirai

"Some call me an angel. Some call me a demon. Personally? I call myself an opportunist."

Kirai is the mouthpiece of Chaos, controlled directly by Xal'Kyrai itself. The undoing of order and harbinger of disruption, his presence often indicates the coming of mass social unrest or the disturbance of reality itself.

CURRENT STATUS: Unknown

The Terminus

Balance

The Pillar Scribe

"I cannot speak or scream, even if I rip open the flesh over my mouth to expose the remains of my teeth."
Paris was a once a mortal human who fell into The Backrooms in ancient times, becoming trapped in The Terminus' realm. He would eventually be rescued by Blanche and transported to the Cygnus Archive, where he lives to this day. However, Paris did not escape unscathed, for he is now the Pillar Scribe, the second avatar of Terminus, tasked with transcribing all forbidden knowledge imparted to him.

CURRENT STATUS: Alive

Space

Solaris

"You hold within you the grand force of cataclysm; it lay between your claws and beneath your layers of armor; it streams through your ichor and into your blade."

Solaris was known as “The Starmother” to her worshipers in ancient times. In more recent times however, she has isolated herself, primarily out of a perceived shame for “failing” her purpose.

Time

Divus

"Time keeps spinning. I've not enough hands for each zeptosecond, and so I turn to the bottle. You would, as well, were you in my place."

Divus is the Keeper of Time. During the fracture of the Pantheon, Divus chose to abandon post. Ae constructed a machine, the Enigmachina, to automate aer duties before disappearing. Rumor has it that ae has since turned to alcoholism.

Access

The Keymaster

"Soon, you'll see what nightmares will be unleashed, and I will remain, holding the keys to the kingdom."

Gatekeeper was the original god of Access who reigned alongside the rest of the Pantheon in ancient times. Pure and absolute in his rule, he never wavered from his purpose. However, as man began to turn against the Gods, his heart hardened, and he became cruel. Gatekeeper was ultimately poisoned and killed by one of his own followers. He was then infused into his own cloak by his oversoul, forced to seek out the most compatible host to wear the cloak and bear the title of The Keymaster.

Kushim

"Life Is Brilliant… It Enchants Us With Its Endless Beauty And Cruelty. What Will The Future Hold? Will We Be Rewarded In This Tortured World With No Prizes? My Soul Goes On Believing."

Two-Faced

Stupor

Y'liad Elyion

"… It was in that moment of wellnigh death… that I perfected My Sword and… unleashed… upon My near-equal, a form that… not even I could have divined… "Vanish", he called it… as he fell unto white grass… he earned respect even in death…"

Y'liad Elyion, the profaned lord of a carcass-turned cosmos. In his former world, he was crowned as "Paramount-King-of-All-Kings-atop-Greymount" and eventually became known as "The Greyking" by those who survived his conquest of stupor. In the Lost, he is called "Y'liad the Malevolent", "Y'liad the Putrid", "Y'liad, Sword Saint Unworthy", "Y'liad the Unkingly", "Y'liad the Vilest", and more after the Massacre in the Fifty-first Domain, where he is forever remembered as a slaughterer in their history. The Greyking appears as a long-haired, tall, pale man, cloaked in an ashen blue royal robe, who wields a silver sword—a guise hiding pale flesh—but other manifestations include a bearded old king, a faceless abomination in royal attire, and Death itself. He is a master combatant by heart despite his atrocious crimes, only allowing his spare time to train and spar with all varieties of weapons. He is skilled the most in swords, next spears, and then bows. One of the most inactive members in the Pantheon.

Fengári

"For the sake of reality I must remain empty, for the sake of everyone's lives I must remain intact, pure, and devoid of corruption. There is no freedom for me, no freedom from this endless prison of nothing, but it must be done."

The prisoner of thoughts, the one who must keep the balance stable, the one who never had a choice. They live isolated, wishing to put an end to their never ending suffering and nothingness, but there is no freedom for Gods. Never.

They can never satisfy anyone, they can never be perfect.

Impure and insignificant tool.

Lorenzo Windsor

"My Existence, Although Forever Unyielding, Shall Remain Ephemeral In Purpose And Strife. My Memories, Albeit Displaced, Shall Serve Those Who Need The Will To Move Forward Beyond Finality."

Lorenzo is the absolute incarnation of the original Avatar of Memory. He is a man of little words and immense longing for a life he's never had, and as long as there exists a mind, he must carry on the burden of his role: to act as the final reservoir of the collective conscious; as remembering what's gone may be far too great for one to withstand.

Lady Blanche Von Haderach has earned quite the reputation as keeper of the Cygnus Archive. Kind, polite, and a firm advocate for pacifism, Blanche's respect for her guests is matched only by her eagerness to learn more. While she takes great pride and joy in her current role, she was once part of the Pantheon, though she has long since distanced herself from such affairs.

Love

Philia

"Love exists within most living beings, I have observed all shapes of it, the positive and negative sides, the happiness and the grief caused from it, and I will continue to do so eternally, because it is the sole reason I exist, to observe and to continue this purpose for as long as one may still feel Love in their heart."

Philia is the direct reflection of the Pillar of Love, they have existed from the very beginning, taking different forms, forms of deities closer to human knowledge in order to observe them from a closer perspective. They are known to feel unconditional love towards any being, God or human, thinking being and mindless being, their Love and care is never ending, caring for most in a motherly way never expecting others to show the same. Yet, they are incapable of handling anything else other than those warm emotions that are part of Love, if they were to experience too much sorrow, the heartbreak would be too unbearable to go through.

Olivia Bellerose

"Sacrifice is the biggest part of Love, the more one loves the more one will suffer, because one will sacrifice everything for love, even if it means falling apart and losing who they once were, sacrificing everything to protect those that are loved, no matter the price. That is the power that Love has over a mind."

She was once a human who loved too much, and that same Love caused suffering and grief many times in her life. During the brink of death she showed resilience in persisting to live, for the love she felt towards others, that burning determination to protect and to maintain a promise. She did not die that day, but she did not live either, she is now trapped in a prison of her own conscious, but once she will be reborn, she will become part of Love once more, and her future will be chosen by her own hands, instead of the hands of fate.
