deadpan

Here is my best explanation:

'expressionless' is the definition.
('deadpan' can be a synonym of 'expressionless')

'god unresponsive at first' is the subsidiary indication.
'god' becomes 'pan' (Pan is an example).
'unresponsive' becomes 'dead' (I've seen this before).
'at first' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'pan' after 'dead' is 'deadpan'.
