The Roman Pantheon is a group of gods from Roman mythology.
Known Members[edit | edit source]
The Roman goddess of luck who in ancient times favored true heroes. In the 21st century, Fortuna opens a pool hall in Alaska with her demigod son Pax where people bet their luck against each other and Fortuna takes some for herself. In 2020, Sam and Dean Winchester seek out Fortuna's pool hall based on a rumor Garth heard of a place where people can regain their luck after God takes away most of their luck to "downgrade" them back into normal people. Though the Winchesters ultimately lose to Fortuna, she becomes impressed when the goddess recognizes the Winchesters as true heroes, something that she had believed to be extinct. Fortuna returns her victims' lost luck and releases them before shutting down her pool hall and restoring the luck God took from the Winchesters. Fortuna also passes on a message to the Winchesters to make God play their game instead of playing his.
