The Descendants are the players and Game Masters of Destroy the Godmodder. They get this title from being the spiritual descendants of the Psi-Godmodding War's fighters, known as the Ancestors. Because the Psi-Godmodding War is an analogue to Destroy the Godmodder 2, the "original" Descendants (that is, the group which originated the term) were the players of DTG2. However, the term has since come to mean any player of the DTG series games, and even come to refer to the specific mantle of power that all ingame Descendants possess.
Unlike the main twelve Ancestors, not all of the main twelve Descendants stuck with DTG2 through the entire game. Minor107, OpelSpeedster, and Crusher48 all left the game at some point (though Crusher rejoined), and only TT2000, ninjatwist321, engie_ninja, Minor107, and Fseftr were in DTG2 at the beginning.
The Descendants are chosen by the Narrative as the brave Minecraftians who will take a stand against the Godmodder. As a result, they have special godmodding powers, the ability to summon and charge entities, and invulnerability (unless one or more of these powers are taken away from them). In addition, every Descendant has a corresponding symbol on Bill Cipher's Zodiac.
The Ancestors' Descendants Edit
Fseftr was a major player of the Destroy the Godmodder series. He played as an Anti-Godmodder during Destroy the Godmodder and switched through all three factions (Anti-Godmodder, Pro-Godmodder, and Neutral, in that order) during Destroy the Godmodder 2, one of the only players to do so. He left the series during Destroy the Godmodder 0rigins. Fseftr was known for being a major villain during the early days of DTG2, summoning the Four Horsemen, his excessive amount of Azure Essence alchemies, and a plot involving an alternate version of Earth known as Universe B™, where his main character Blue came from.
Fseftr created the first official (noncanon) spinoff, Be the Godmodders: Defeat Notch, which follows an alternate timeline where the players became godmodders and had to fight against Team Mojang. He also participated in Destroy the Godmodder: TV Tropes Edition, and moderated Destroy the Godmodder: MSPA Edition at the end of its life. Fseftr played as Mercury during DTG0, a Minecraftian from a Pixelmon server who worked for the Conflict. He also created #DTG and the DTG Forums.

In DTG2, he was an Anti-Godmodder (barring a quick defection to Neutral), and in DTG0, he was a Pro-Zero.
Outside of creating DTG, he was known for his bow-based alchemies and his tendency to avoid charging and make creative one-off attacks; the charges he did make, such as the 100-Post Cannon and the Player Containment and Holding Unit, were very powerful and successful.

Other Major Descendants Edit
Pionoplayer was a major player of the Destroy the Godmodder series, playing in all three games of the main series. However, before Act 2 of Destroy the Godmodder 2, he was regarded as a troll player who didn't follow the rules. After joining for real in Act 2, he became one of the most influential players in the entire series. He is known for his many contributions to the plot, his large amount of powerful characters and overpowered items, and for taking some other players' plotlines into his own. He left the series during Destroy the Godmodder 0rigins, but has since rejoined and plays spinoffs.
Piono is the creator of the first canon spinoff, Destroy the Godmodder: TV Tropes Edition, which ran while DTG2 was active. Because it was canon, there needed to be a way for the Godmodder to attack TV Tropes and DTG2 at the same time. Thus, Alpha was created as the Godmodder that would attack all canon spinoffs, making TV Tropes Edition the first game in the Alpha Saga. The game centered around Alpha trying to rise up in the TV Tropes Pantheon while Piono furthered his characters' arcs. It was successful enough to gain a sequel, Destroy the Godmodder TV Tropes 2: Salvation.
Later on, Piono created Destroy the Godmodder: MSPA Edition, a canon spinoff meant to cap off Homestuck's involvement within the Destroy the Godmdoder series with a fitting finale, as well as Destroy the Simumodder, a forum game meant to test gameplay ideas for later installments. Piono is also the chief planner for the Destroy the Godmodder reboot, an alternate canon meant to simplify the game.
Piono's most important characters are Eric, an interdimensional traveler trying to recreate the Interuniversal Peace Corps, Piono, Eric's Minecraft avatar that gained sentience and became a malevolent Minecraftian, and the OP King, a being so powerful he technically can't even exist.
Nimbleguy was a major player of the Destroy the Godmodder series, playing as an Anti-Godmodder in both Destroy the Godmodder 2 and Destroy the Godmodder 0rigins. He joined in Act 2 of DTG2 and was absent from the series after the game's end until the summer of 2016, when he rejoined. Nimbleguy is known for his wide cast of characters, the majority of which were split personalities within his mind. Nimbleguy himself played as a highly experimental android that commonly dabbled in thaumaturgy. His magnum opus was Nimbleguy's Tubas, a highly powerful weapon with many modifications and special attacks. Nimbleguy was also known for introducing Bill Cipher as a character within the Destroy the Godmodder series.
Nimbleguy's symbol on the Zodiac is Nulled, a cube of Null (an element found in the Void) that references his own memo game, Nulled.
TheLordErelye was a major player of the Destroy the Godmodder series, playing as an Anti-Godmodder in both Destroy the Godmodder 2 and Destroy the Godmodder 0rigins. He joined during Act 2 and left around Trial 6, rejoining for DTG0 and leaving the series in December 2016, although his involvement in the community persisted to the present day. Erelye was known for his distinctive writings, which were long and descriptive. He is commonly credited with popularizing "longposting." Erelye's attacks commonly depicted his thaumaturgical exploits, interactions with eldritch beasts or creations, and mysteries of the arcane. His magnum opus was the Hazel Wand, an incredibly powerful weapon upgraded many times throughout the game.
Erelye's main character, Kalare Erelye, was an elf in a session of SBURB that ended up interacting with Minecraft while in the Veil. As DTG2 went on, Erelye's arcane power increased, coming to a head in the form of a gigantic castle located in Nihil Parva, a realm of chaos, known as Grayhold Citadel. After DTG2, Erelye became a psuedodeity of knowledge, recruiting fifteen other Descendants for the creation of ВИСЦЕС. In DTG0, his characters included Cinavi Kanera and Ciryatur.
After leaving DTG, Erelye continued to be a prominent member of the community by becoming the first real executive of the DTG Discord and keeping tabs with the rest of the staff. He also created several of his own stories, the most prominent of which is Abyssal Oddity, a memo game inspired by Steven Universe and Hyper Light Drifter about a half-gem wandering through interstellar space in pursuit of Void Shards.
Erelye's symbol on the Zodiac is Cosmic Goggles, which represents the goggles Kalare wears.
Insert_Generic_Username was a major player of the Destroy the Godmodder series, playing as an Anti-Godmodder in both Destroy the Godmodder 2 and Destroy the Godmodder 0rigins. He joined during Act 3 of DTG2. He is known for his creative one-off attacks, his references to MS Paint Adventures (such as starting the Grimdark vs. Trickster strife and summoning Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff), and his frequent alchemy creations, particularly his extensive set of Fluorite Octets, each centered around different themes.
Generic's symbol on the Zodiac is Spirograph, which represents his references to MSPA.
