Olympos XII

From Wikimon

The Olympos XII (オリンポス十二神 or alternatively オリンポス12神 Orinposu Jūnishin, lit. "Twelve Gods of Olympus") are a group of twelve powerful God Man Digimon who manage the Digital World: Iliad, which exists on a different Server from the Digital World ruled by Yggdrasill,[1] run by a host computer known as Homeros[2], who recognizes their magnificent power.[3]

The Olympos XII possess abilities rivaling those of the Royal Knights[4], so the knights have not felt the need to personally interfere in Iliad's affairs.[1] The members of Olympos XII protect their own domains while maintaining a position of neutrality regarding the incidents which arise in the Digital World,[4] but some Digimon with a similar goal, like Plutomon, are excluded from their number due to their cruelty in its pursuit.[5] The forces that defy the will of the Olympos XII and oppose them in battle are never-ending,[6] to the point that the hatred of the digimon they've defeated has been reborn as Titamon, who seeks to have their heads.[7]

It seems that because of Yggdrasill's will, the Royal Knights will eventually cross Servers to the Digital World: Iliad Server and meet the Olympos XII. Whether the Royal Knights and the Olympos XII end up engaging in war or forming an alliance remains to be seen.[1]

Digimon Crusader[edit]

See: Digimon Crusader/Storyline

In the Digital World: Iliad, the host computer known as Homeros wanted the Digimon to be guided by their wild instincts, free will, even if that meant their self-destruction (a modified version of the Prometheus myth). The Digital World: Iliad eventually collapsed because the Olympos XII taught the Digimon there the concept of good and evil, against the will of Homeros. In retaliation, Homeros gave power to Plutomon over the titans (An army of Titamon), and the Olympos XII were forced to flee to the Digital World of Yggdrasill, where they learned their lesson and became neutral. Plutomon, already in the Digital World of Yggdrasill, pretends to take revenge of Jupitermon (now amnesic and in his adult form of Aegiomon) for not having been accepted in origin like a member of the Olympos XII.

Minervamon is found in the Logic Volcano, and asks Takuto/Shiki to deliver a gift to her fellow Olympos member, Dianamon, who is in the Frost Cathedral. After accepting the gift, Dianamon decides to send a letter in return to Minervamon, sending the tamer to deliver it. Minervamon then once again sends the tamer back to Dianamon with another gift, and Dianamon sends the tamer back to Minervamon with a gift as well. Upon opening Dianamon's gift, Minervamon is covered in water, and becomes enraged - assuming Dianamon was pranking her. Minervamon runs to the Frost Cathedral, arriving before the tamer, and during the duo's argument, Minervamon learns that Dianamon had carved her a sculpture made of ice - which melted due to the heat of the Logic Volcano, as well as the fact that Dianamon didn't like the gifts Minervamon had been sending. When the tamer tries to calm the two of them down, they attack the tamer in an attempt to murder them so they couldn't tell others of their argument. After their defeat, they come to their senses and join the City, joining the Colosseum where Minervamon works during the day and gives rewards if the tamer's Digimon have 100 discipline and 0 mood, whilst Dianamon works during the night and if the tamer's Digimon have 0 discipline and 100 mood.

Digimon New Century[edit]

At some point after the great war where Yggdrasill and most of the Royal Knights disappeared, Homeros sent Marsmon, Ceresmon, Dianamon and Venusmon, from the Olympos XII, to the Digital World of Yggdrasill.

Originally sent to investigate whether the other world would be able to prevent its own collapse, the group was to contact the Royal Knights and confront them if necessary.

Goddramon, one of the Four Great Dragons, intervenes and takes advantage of the quartet's lack of prior knowledge of the Royal Knights and attempts to trick them with the help of Megidramon, who took the form of Chaos Dukemon to pose as the Dukemon Royal Knight. After the hoax is discovered, the other members of the Four Great Dragons emerge and begin a debate with the Olympos, who after discovering the absence of Yggdrasill and his knights, worry that with the absence of God the Digital World could collapse.

After the battle between Goddramon and Marsmon (where Goddramon evolved into Goddramon (X-Antibody) after releasing all his sacred power), Dianamon and the others decide to return to Iliad, where she herself will inform Homeros about the situation, although she cannot guarantee that he will not send the other members of Olympos XII. Goddramon X then asks Homeros to be informed that if he wants to dominate his world, they will be enemies next time.

Some time later... Qinglongmon is informed by Andiramon about a portal, although the Four Great Dragons debate whether it is an invasion from Iliad or not, they cannot even figure out if it was actually a portal or just a Time Rift, since Zhuqiaomon plunged everything into flames, as it was in its territory.

After some more time, Mihiramon informs Qinglongmon that a new portal has appeared. Although Megidramon wishes to fight the invaders, since Goddramon (X-Antibody) took the spotlight earlier, he is scolded by the other members about being too much for just four Digimon, with Qinglongmon revealing that the other Four Holy Beasts will also join the battle. At this moment, Makuramon appears, and despite Megidramon's complaints about him not speaking clearly, the Deva reveals that Baihumon has already come into direct confrontation with the invaders.

Arriving at the location, the group sees Baihumon facing Jupitermon and Junomon, who states that this world will eventually be taken over by Homeros. Entrusting the fight to the tiger, Qinglongmon is informed by Andiramon and Majiramon that Zhuqiaomon and Xuanwumon have found Dianamon and Ceresmon, and that there are also two more Digimon with them, in addition, a powerful aquatic Digimon has appeared in the sea, and Ancient Mermaimon is gathering an army to face him.

After Qinglongmon follows Sinduramon to investigate a Digimon that is poisoning everyone, Goddramon X decides to go in search of Marsmon, and Holydramon goes to Baihumon's aid, leaving Megidramon to find the remaining invaders, and warning him to be careful with Venusmon.

Following the path indicated by an Armadimon and a Phascomon, Megidramon finds Venusmon accompanied by Vulcanusmon, although Megidramon is ready to fight, the confrontation ends up becoming just a debate due to Venusmon's kind nature, which reveals that Jupitermon has already defeated two of the allies of the dragon and that the seas already belong to Neptunemon. Vulcanusmon, worried about Venusmon, eventually steps in front of an attack that Megidramon launches after becoming tired of the two and leaving to investigate the truth, while Venusmon heals his partner's wounds.

After overhearing a conversation between a Calamaramon and Neptunemon, Megidramon realizes that all of Olympos XII is here, so Iliad is unprotected, the dragon then decides to invade Iliad to destroy Homeros alone. Before leaving, Megidramon asks Holydramon to destroy the portal if he doesn't return.

After Megidramon crosses the portal, Jupitermon receives a message from his god about the invasion, sending Apollomon and Dianamon to take care of the situation. Although the pair return to Iliad in time, they are unable to face him, as Dianamon is still injured by Zhuqiaomon's flames, and Apollomon's flames are useless against the dragon.

At this moment they both hear Homeros' voice, calling them "My Knights", the god grants them the power to evolve even further, leading to the appearance of Grace Novamon, which Megidramon responds by releasing all his power, evolving into Megidramon (X-Antibody) and going crazy in the process. The other Olympos return and together they create an opening for Grace Novamon to attack.

While in the Digital World of Yggdrasill, the remaining members of the Four Great Dragons prepare to destroy the portal. Despite Holydramon's objections to them believing in Megidramon, Goddramon X begins to say that after this they will have to choose a new member for the group. At this moment Megidramon's voice can be heard questioning why a new member, with the dragon returning in its original form.

Holydramon asks what the result of the battle was, however, Megidramon doesn't remember anything after releasing his power, but believes that since he is there, he must have won. At that moment Qinglongmon and Goddramon X notice an seal from another world on Megidramon's body, which Qinglongmon says could be the answer they were looking for.

Ignoring Megidramon's questions, Qinglongmon says that they must go now, as the Digital World needs them to begin its reconstruction after the war.
