    Fairy Knight Lancelot
    Melusine

    One of the Knights of the Round Table from the Fairy Nation Britain.
    A fairy knight labelled with the Saint Graph of Lancelot, a Knight of the Round Table from Pan Human History.
    The sole fairy in Britain of the "dragon" kind.
    Despite behaving like a ruthless warrior, she was regarded as the most beautiful, proud fairy in the Fairy Nation due to her demeanor, elegance and a figure that was a cut above that of other fairies.

    Her name as a fairy is Melusine.
    A fairy transmitted in France, also called Melisande.
    The heroine from a story about a "human–animal marriage", which often became a theme of folklores since ancient times.
    A half-human, half-fairy beauty possessing the lower body of a snake and dragon wings.
    A fairy born from a human father and a fairy mother. Originally a beautiful young girl, but due to committing the sin of imprisoning her father on a cavern, she received a curse that "turned her lower body into that of a snake only on Saturdays".
    Supposedly, the curse became more powerful after she was seen by her lover when her lower body had turned into that of a snake, causing Melusine herself to become a repulsive snake.

    ○Personality
    Introvert and active.
    The kind of person who get things done, promptly performing her duties even while keeping her own feelings to herself. A maiden-knight who is fastidious and does not fool around, always in a strained mood.

    Prone to appear as a "coldhearted fairy" due to categorizing humans as evil and mercilessly ostracizing them. Still, despite shunning humans, she neither hates nor looks down on them.
    She simply perceives them as "lifeforms with low viability on an individual level".
    Due to also the circumstances how Melusine herself came to be, she does not discriminate others based on the "ecology they were born into".

    When conducting herself as a Fairy Knight, she refers to herself as "boku" and behaves in a princely manner. However, upon returning to her plain Melusine self, she refers to herself as "watashi" and reveals her natural airhead personality. As "someone solitary, abandoned" by nature, she is self-torturing and easily succumbs to loneliness.

    Self-aware of the fact she is the strongest lifeform, so things like strength and weakness are not part of her criterion for likes and dislikes. After all, everyone else becomes a "weakling" when compared to her.
    What Melusine likes is not the "courage to oppose those stronger than oneself", but the "kindness to sympathise with those weaker than oneself".
    If anything, she will act like a clinging, spoiled child and say "Obey the strong. Unconditionally. In other words, obey me."

    "Melusine is not my true name though.
    Still, it is a very precious name.
    "

    Dragon Heart: B
    Indicates Melusine's magic circuits, which are also referred as a dragon's reactor, or maybe a dragon's jewel.
    A condition of excessive manifestation of vital energy, classified as a form of "Prana Burst" in the Pan-Human History.
    Having reconstructed herself as a "fairy dragon", Melusine is endowed with the same biological function of a dragon despite not belonging to the draconic species.

    Eternal Arms Mastership: B
    A skill transcripted from Lancelot, a Heroic Spirit from Pan Human History.
    No matter what sort of mental condition she is in, she is capable of perfectly displaying the combat techniques that she learned.
    Something that may also be described as combat experience etched into the body by means of excessive training... but this skill is somewhat superfluous for Melusine, who is tenacious by birth.
    Melusine dislike the very existence of this skill. A living being that was born strong has no need for technique.

    Ray Horizon: A
    Derived from the anecdotes transmitted in England about a dragon (mirage) that protects the "horizon"/"boundary", which is regarded as a gate to the spirit world.(2)
    Melusine is merely her name and vessel as a "fairy", and her original role is that of a "boundary" in itself.
    ...a procedure for the sake of Melusine transforming into her original appearance.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Innocence Arondight - The Pure Lake Light Not Yet Known
    Rank:
    A
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 2~10
    Maximum Targets: 1 animal
    A simple Noble Phantasm that refines a "Fairy Sword Arondight" inside her outer skin and strike the opponent with it.
    The spear-version of Lancelot's Arondight.
    Damage itself is low, but its rotation rate(2) is top-rank.
    A Noble Phantasm that can be deployed casually, almost as if a normal attack.
    As for why the damage is low, that is because - as far as Melusine is concerned - this is not her own Noble Phantasm, but something borrowed (a forgery) that belongs to Lancelot.

    Hollow Heart Albion - The Pure Heartbeat That Nobody Knows
    Rank:
    EX
    Type: Anti_World
    Range: 20~500
    Maximum Targets: 500 animals
    A dragon breath unleashed by Melusine after changing to her "original appearance" by means of the third skill.
    Having turned back to her "original appearance", Melusine is no longer a being that can be called a fairy and the light that overflows from her majestic heart becomes a wide-area destruction weapon.
    That form could be perceived as a rainbow that covers the boundary, or maybe a gate (pattern from a different dimension) to the spirit world that was opened in this world.
    After using this, Melusine will not revert to the vessel as a fairy that she wished "to be like" and instead disappear without anyone knowing.

    The Albion from the Lostbelt continued to fly over the "sea of nothingness" and eventually died out, but this also serves as evidence of the fact that, in any sort of human history, it met a tragic death as a "dragon that failed to return to the star".



    (1) the Japanese term used here is more often employed when referring to animals rather than people

    (2) Much like the case with Barghest, I can't find an actual source for this. I would appreciate if anyone could point me to the right direction.

    Percival
    Percival

    A Knight of the Round Table of King Arthur, from Britain. The Second Seat of the Round Table.
    Percevaus li Galois.(1)
    A sincere knight who was occasionally called a pure fool.

    An expert of the spear. A knight who caught a glimpse of the miracle of the Holy Grail. A compassionate knight who rescued many. Also, the knight who guards the "other holy lance" that is different from the holy spear carried by the King of Knights - namely, Longinus.

    A sincere guardian knight that prizes decorum.
    Also described as pure at times.
    He conducts himself in a gentle manner, without displaying anger or distrust.
    The person himself is not self-aware of this, but unacquainted children and animals easily grow fond of him. In his previous life, he would often stand on the gardens of Camelot to bask in the morning sunlight while having small birds on his shoulders and arms.

    Although he displays a more severe aspect of himself during combat, that is only during combat.

    The Holy Grail was fated to be yielded to Heavens along with Galahad, but the fate of the Holy Lance Longinus was to remain on Earth.
    In this work, the one who brought back said Holy Lance was Sir Percival.

    The existence of the knight Percival was also depicted in Wagner's final opera - "Parsifal".
    In this opera, he is portrayed as the retriever and successor of the Holy Lance.

    A person that is good at taking care of others.
    Someone who often meddles in the affairs of others, especially in regards to younger individuals, his juniors.
    He also yearns to look after the Master.
    That is because he wishes from the bottom of his heart to protect and safely raise youngsters who are likely to become important personages in the future.
    In the Round Table, the young Gareth, the apprentice knight Bors and the son of Sir Lancelot, Galahad, fitted that bill exactly.

    "Sir Percival feels more like a sibling than any of my brothers."

    While still alive, Gareth once muttered those words with a smile in her face.
    ---having accidentally heard such a thing after she had died, Percival shed a single tear in the deserted gardens of Camelot.

    Protection of the Holy Grail: A
    Having witnessed Galahad's ascension, he possesses a strong connection to the Holy Grail and receives a divine protection of sorts from it.
    In some traditions and stories, Percival is even portrayed as a bearer of the Holy Grail

    Guardian Knight (Holy Lance): B+
    A skill that denotes the fact he is a noble knight that safeguards the Holy Lance.
    Something falsely similar to the rare skill Guardian Knight.

    Light of Salvation: B
    Emits a light that conceals protective and restorative effects.
    One of the collateral effects of the Holy Lance turned into a skill.
    This effect can be constantly employed even without releasing the dual restraints.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Longinus Count-Zero - Illuminating Spear of Destiny
    Rank:
    C+~A+
    Type: Anti-Fortress
    Range: 1~70
    Maximum Targets: 600 people
    The other holy lance, which supposedly stabbed the chest of the messiah.
    Once its True Name is released, Longinus functions as a literal anti-fortress Noble Phantasm - displaying the same transcendent might it had shown when Sir Balin used the Holy Lance in his fight against King Pellam, causing the collapse of the royal castle (equated with the Grail Castle Corbenic).
    A fearsome, destructive Noble Phantasm, but it is also endowed with healing powers.

    The Holy Lance is bound by dual restraints, imposed by Galahad and Balin. One can probably also consider this a downsized version of the “Thirteen Restraints” seen in the holy spear Rhongomynyad possessed by the King of Knights (or in the holy sword Excalibur possessed by the King of Knights from another world).



    (1) couldn't come up with a proper translation for the epithet used in the Japanese text, so I am using his formal French title as a placeholder.


    Koyanskaya
    Koyanskaya of Light

    A mysterious Servant that appeared on Chaldea one step ahead of the 6th Anniversary, as if a woman that can sense the mood.
    A S-P-Y whose power, charm are still shrouded in mystery.
    No matter how you look at her, she is the very Koyanskaya who opposed Chaldea. Still, she herself claims to no longer be an infant Beast, but merely an almighty beautiful secretary (light)...?

    The number one agent(1) in term of ability and achievements, and the chief executive officer of the NFF Services, which became a world-leading private military company in just a month, after having just distinguishing itself in 2017 A.D.
    Making "freewheeled wild nature" as her policy, this captivating beauty lead humans around by the nose in a bewitching manner.
    Despite evaluating all human deeds as filthy, she does not dislike them for being filthy. Some things are fun exactly because they are filthy. Such as entertainment, games and business management.

    "If it is just cleaning up all of humanity, then that is something the others can also do right?
    I was born from the evil of caring.
    (2)
    My resentment is not so shallow as to so easily 'liquidate a sin' and then go home♡."

    As you see, due possessing a personality that seeks to enjoy herself in any circumstances, her attacks towards humanity become quite roundabout.
    She thought of many ways to make humans learn their lesson, but in the end reached the conclusion that "wouldn't degeneration due to being controlled by those they once cared for be the most humiliating and perverse method?" and choose the path of evolving into a "goddess of weapons" worthy of dominating humanity.



    She planned to absorb the "God from Another Planet" as her eighth tail, and then "Chaldea's Master" as her final ninth tail. However, a trouble arose during the sixth tail and immediately caused her to change her schedule→revise her business operations to "a certain project" that was her ultimate goal.

    What really is the true objective of the NFF Services---?

    Due to having great pride as someone who lives by her wild nature, she possesses the sense of integrity to "fulfil her promises without fail", "always return received benefits with benefits, regardless of who the other party is".
    The fact that, during Part 1.5, she was able to operate and achieve success in human society as a business management consultant is probably due to this personality.

    ○Attitude toward the Master
    Her stance is to fulfil his superficial desires... all while skilfully trampling over his essential hopes (his dreams for the future, ideal self, etc.).
    Those contracted with such Koyanskaya will begin to enjoy the everyday life of a successful individual from that day on, but will ultimately become failures after having everything taken way from them, despairing and then losing even the will to go on.
    However. Having discovered her purpose in life in seeing the depressed state of the Master as he despaired upon becoming aware that he lost his chance before even realizing... that he couldn't become his ideal self due being spoiled too much... Koyanskaya will run about to help the Master recover to his previous condition - just so she can experience that purpose in life again.

    Thus an infinite loop of setback→rousing oneself→setback→rousing oneself begins.
    In the end, the matter of who ends in a profit and who ends in a loss will depend on the Master's human strength.

    The Beasts are vices born from "the karma produced as humanity develops". As a candidate for the Beast IV position, Koyanskaya also fits that bill.
    Among those that "were persecuted by humanity・employed for persecution by humanity", this Koyanskaya became one of those "employed for persecution".
    ...namely, a divine spirit that comprises all "harmful tools manufactured by humanity". Upon achieving her Third Ascension, she profess herself to be the Ikusa-Utsuwa-no-Oomikami (roughly, "great god of weapons") out of respect for the culture that gave shape to Tamamo-no-Mae.

    Possessing the privilege to employ all weapons manufactured by humanity, and also the Authority to display their utmost performance.
    Even if she has turned to the light-attribute, her misanthropic tendencies did not change.
    While it may not reach the level of "cleaning up humanity", her stance is that "it is about time for humanity to learn a lesson about getting carried away".

    A revenger that gathered "■■■■■■■".
    Although a pseudo-apotheosis of the natural world's retaliation mechanisms, maybe due the fact that Tamamo-no-Mae is her prototype, her propensity to revelling in pleasure while thinking "all that aside, I will enjoy my own life☆." is quite strong.
    Also, her most important secret is the fact that, regardless of how much of an enemy of humanity with no yearning for marriage she may become, the "predisposition for servicing" possessed by Tamamo-no-Mae alone will not disappear.

    Incidentally, she is not a fox, but a bunny.

    "

    Riding: B
    Somewhat stylish as a woman who rides on the times・fashion.

    Indenpendent Action: EX
    Surprisingly (and frighteningly), the Koyanskaya of Light has no need for the Master.
    There is only one reason why she follows the Master's orders. That is the pride of "unlike humans, I won't break my promises (contracts)".

    Independent Manifestation: C
    The proof of a SPY. Drifter abilities.
    As she possess the Beast-attribute, Koyanskaya can intrude into any sort of different world・different common sense.
    Back when she was an infant Beast, Koyanskaya was able to casually move between Lostbelts and even the blanked Earth. But since this has currently received a great Rank-DOWN, it seems that she can no longer move as casually as before.

    Shapeshifting: A
    Originally something for increasing defensive power, but Koyanskaya instead makes habitual use of this in her SPY activities.

    Innovator Bunny: A
    The Authority to better employ systems devised for the sake of prosperity and construct cycles that torment (exploit) humanity alone... or so she says with a triumphant look, but this is just a hobby, talent of hers.

    Slaughter Finesse (Human): A
    A subspecies of the skill possessed by Archimedes, one of the founders of arithmetics.
    Archimedes ended up manufacturing "weapons of slaughter that surpassed the technological standards of that era" against his wishes, but Koyanskaya obtained this skill by her own desires.
    A skill to freely employ human weapons that exist in a given era and make their might "several times greater than when they are used by humanity". Something that instantaneously enforces nature's cycles of retributive justice (which originally would be something more lenient, taking several hundred years to be implemented).
    As befitting a former infant Beast, this skill denotes the fact that (in theory) "the humanity from said era don't stand a change against her".
    That being said, since this is just a skill to obtain the upper hand against humanity, it is not so absolute when fighting against Servants and monsters.

    Summoning of the NF-79 Suppression Tactical Vehicle (a superior weapon that is the pride of the Tamamo Heavy Industries, a corporation affiliated to the NFF) to exterminate the enemy.
    The NF-79 is both a vehicle and, at the same time, a shrine that exalts Koyanskaya.
    The large amounts of missiles are likened after the tradition of "tekika mansha"(4) - or so she says.
    Although it was graciously bestowed with the name of grand temple, that was not for the sake of demonstrating Koyanskaya's own divine virtues. If anything this harms her divine virtues, or maybe indicates the fact that she is an antagonist of those who are sacred.



    (1) as in "secret agent"

    (2) the Japanese term used here is 愛玩 (aigan; also translated as cherishing, treasuring) and mostly refers to the feelings one has towards a pet or prized possession - not something you should have towards another person

    (3) I have no confidence on the translation of that first section being correct. I believe it is Russian, but I could be wrong.

    Habetrot
    Habetrot

    A fairy of thread-spinning transmitted in Scotland.
    Supposedly, it weaves fabrics by spinning threads out of cotton flowers and linseed fibers, and then manufactures clothes.
    As it fundamentally takes the shape of an old woman with a bent back, its body is very small, about the size of a human child.
    A fairy that helps women who are training to become brides, it is a bridal fairy of dreams that takes the place of brides that became busy right before their marriage in order to tailor them a wedding dress.

    ○Habetrot from the Fairy Nation Britain
    Makes her first appearance in the interlude as a thread-spinning fairy.
    Along with the Saviour Toneriko, she puts an end to the conflict in Britain.
    Her fate was greatly changed by her encounter with Mash, after she had been Leyshifted to the year 400 of the Fairy Calendar...
    Or rather, she is a fairy who overcame her fate with all her might.
    After the Saviour Toneriko and the First Fairy Knight disappeared from the front stage, she toured around Britain by herself, spreading the culture about wedding ceremonies and sending out many brides.
    By the time the era changed into the Queen Calendar, she turned herself into stone inside a twisted hole in the northern territories and continued to sleep until the time of meeting in the year 2017. After helping out Mash in Sheffield with an innocent look, she guided Chaldea's Master to Orkney and came to accept her own choices.

    Once went by the name Totrot in the Lostbelt, but after being taught about the folklore of Habetrot from Pan-Human History by Mash, she admired that way of being and started to call herself Habetrot upon waking up from her sleep of stone.



    Originally a rambunctious kid from the Wing Clan, she began travelling together with Toneriko as a comrade after losing in a duel.
    (A thread-spinning fairy by nature, but she was troubled by the "disparity in her way of being" created by the fact that she couldn't send out human brides in the Lostbelt. That feeling of loss turned Totrot into a rambunctious kid).
    After that, she thrived as the First Fairy Knight Totrot who fought together with the Saviour Toneriko.

    Incidentally, the one who wrote Mash's name in her shield with chalk during the interlude was Habetrot.
    After borrowing the shield while saying "show it to me", she quickly wrote "Mash" on it. The fact it was done in chalk (which is used for measurements) serves as proof.

    ○Personality
    Introvert and active.
    Despite not being prone of self-assertion, she performs what she must do・what she wants to do in a powerful manner.
    She likes good people and hates bad people.
    Be as it may, since the person herself is neutral, despite making a distinction between good and evil, she is not the type to arbitrarily decide which is better and which is worse.
    Fundamentally, Habetrot does not hold a grudge over others.
    She views peace as "comfortable".
    Conflict is "unpleasant due being tiresome".
    That is her sense of values. Basically, she is a fairy that is happy so long she can enjoy herself with some sewing work.

    The Habetrot from the Lostbelt suffered with issues on her memory capacity due to the culture of "seeing off brides" not being developed, but the original Habetrot is very clever despite being a small fairy.
    Also, regardless of being from the Lostbelt or from Pan-Human History, both shared the common trait of being very considerate to others.
    In most cases, humans who get involved with fairies go through a bitter experience, but Habetrot is viewed as a fairy that consistently "protects brides".
    Even if said bride has a past she feels guilty about, or committed some sort of sin.
    Habetrot will sacrifice herself for the sake of that bride's happy future, guiding her to a joyful conclusion.

    ○Fairy Habetrot
    Whether it is the Habetrot from Pan-Human History or the one from the Lostbelt, her true nature remains the same.
    That is: to find a young girl she likes (those Habetrot feel that have the right to become happy brides) and utterly support and look after her.
    Habetrot call such a young girl "my bride".
    After sending out a bride, she will soon look for another one. She ends up becoming engrossed upon finding a good girl, even when she already has a bride, so people say she has a personality that is prone to fall in love.

    Although this is not often spoken, but she is the embodiment of devotion. A fairy of self-sacrifice that priorities the happiness of the bride over her own.

    The reason why Habetrot perceives brides as "treasures" is because she is a fairy that can never become an "adult".
    The truth is that she wants to become a bride herself, but since that can't come true, she at least tries to protect the future of the lovely girls that made her fall in love at first sight.
    Substitute behavior. Or maybe, a brilliant dream such as "it would be wonderful if one day I could... no, I would become like that".(1)

    Originally, Habetrot's Noble Phantasm would be a dress that makes brides conspicuous called Bridal Spin-Wheel - A Spinning Wheel Bestowed to a Bride. However, it has turned into this "amazing cannon that fires an amazing bullet" due to various reasons.
    (Since the Habetrot summoned by Chaldea is the one from Pan-Human History, she does not know the reason why this weapon lies at the core of her soul)

    When used by Habetrot, it becomes a physical weapon that employs the flywheel instead of a magical reactor to generate magical energy, and shoots out a button in a railgun format.



    Inside the spinning wheel that Habetrot rides lays a "broken Black Barrel".
    (In order to hide said Black Barrel, Habetrot covers it with a fluffy cloth)
    As a matter of fact, a state-of-the-art machine such as the Black Barrel poisons a fairy such as Habetrot just from being touched.
    The reason why she carefully kept it safe to the very end was solely due to a hunch that "Mash will need this eventually".
    She continued to protect the Black Barrel in order to bestow a future to her friend Mash.




    (1) it is hard to come across in the translation, but in the original Japanese, she is changing to a more feminine way of talking mid-sentence.


    Artoria Caster (after change)
    Artoria Caster

    The "Child of Prophecy" that saves the Fairy Nation.
    A special fairy that was dispatched from the inland sea of the star... from Avalon to the surface along with the "Staff of Selection".
    After drifting into the Lake District, she was placed on a boat along with many treasures by the decision of the Chief of the Mirror Clan, eventually reaching the coast of Tintagel and being raised as a fairy of Tintagel from then on.

    In the Lostbelt, she is the same being as the "someone" who was eventually burdened with the holy sword in Pan-Human History.
    Also, an "accumulation device" sent to collect information on the surface, in order to produce the holy sword - a decisive weapon against the "threat to the star".

    A splendidly pure and energetic girl.
    A sore loser who is strong in face of adversity (she stands up even if something unpleasant happens). She hides her true feelings without telling anyone due to taking the surrounding mood into consideration - just like any ordinary young girl.
    Spending her time doing nothing but studying magecraft, she is a practical researcher who runs around the fields just like a young boy.
    The protagonist of the story who lives up to the expectations of the surrounding people and departs on a journey to save Britain as the "Child of Prophecy".

    ...that is her outwards personality・disposition.
    The Artoria from Pan-Human History had a straightforward personality, but the Artoria from the Lostbelt is not that strong. In the inside, she is a pessimist with extremely frail and timid disposition.
    In her heart, she lets out a sigh while thinking that both herself as a "Child of Prophecy" and the surrounding people that self-destruct as they place their expectations on such a thing are foolish.
    (It is not like she has burned out or is looking down on them. She is merely feeling heavy.)

    Still, since she is mindful about the surrounding mood, Artoria does not reveal those inner aspects of herself and instead ends up keeping up with the appearances by saying "ok, leave it to me!" and behaving exactly as the surroundings expect. All because she doesn't want to have a quarrel with anyone, doesn't want to hate anyone.
    A hard-working commoner who is bad at the essentials, makes a lot of blunders and stumbles all over her path. Her only merit is the fact she is quick to get up after a fall. As such, her stock phrase is "sorry for being weak. I will work hard, I will work hard".
    Her inner monologue at times like these is something like "I'm scared of fighting. Mutual hate is tiresome. I'm much happier living normally."
    Although she is constantly "finding faults in herself" in this manner, one can say that the very fact that her personality - which "worries about the surroundings, without falling to evil nor forgetting about decorum" - does not waver no matter what sort of harsh circumstances・cruel treatment she faces serve as proof that she is an aristocrat.
    The definite difference between her and Oberon is that one point.

    During the journey of pilgrimage, while the motivation of the fake Child of Prophecy was "I'm scared, but I'll work hard because I want to help everyone", the motivation of the true Child of Prophecy was "I'm scared, but saying such a thing would make everyone disappointed, so I have no choice but to work hard".

    She kept hiding a negative mental state in which "everyone is scary, society is disgusting and I can't keep my motivation up even if you tell me to save the world. But since going against the surroundings is also unpleasant, I'll work hard as a saviour".
    Although that ended up becoming "a noble deed in the eyes of others", "the same way of being as King Arthur", Artoria Caster's inner aspects are awfully abject, pessimistic and negative. As such, she is always finding faults in herself.
    "I was able to persevere this time, but most likely, next time, I will probably end up giving up on everything..."

    If the Fairy Kingdom is a fairy-tale pictured by Morgan, the journey of pilgrimage is a fairy-tale describing Artoria's growth.
    Despite appearing to fill the same role as Dorothy - the protagonist of "Wizard of Oz" - she actually possesses a weakness akin to an aggregation of the scarecrow that can't walk properly (can't see his own feet, has no wits), the woodcutter with a hollow heart and the lion that don't want to display courage.
    Why was this Artoria able to remain as the "Child of Prophecy" to the very end? What was she fighting for?
    That answer becomes the end of her story.

    Since she is not a fairy originated from the Fairy Nation Britain, the fairies from Britain have an instinctive antipathy against her.
    Conversely, for fairies who hate all fairies from Britain, fairies not born in the Six Clans and fairies who hate themselves to begin with, the "fairy of paradise" is a source of solace.

    Charisma of Hope: B
    Having been raised and departed on a journey as the Child of Prophecy, Artoria is endowed with the charisma to make people place their hopes and rely on her.

    Fairy of Avalon: A
    A power concealed under the name "Protection of the Lake".
    The power possessed by a fairy of paradise to bless life and protect the target's strength of fate from all sorts of corruption.

    Holy Sword Creation: A
    A power concealed under the name "Sword of Selection".
    Once this power has truly awoken, everything that she creates will end up gaining the "sword"-attribute.

    Fairy Eyes: A
    Not the mystic eyes that people possess, but the field of vision that "switches over the world", which fairies are endowed with from birth.
    The fairy eyes possessed by high ranking fairies are described as eyes capable of seeing through all lies and projecting the truth.
    Since good will and ill will are both lumped together by fairies, this is a mostly meaningless supernatural power as far as they are concerned. Still, nothing good will come out from a human that feels perplexed by the differences between good and evil possessing these eyes.

    Because of these eyes, Artoria Caster could see all the lies and true intentions of people.
    This is why, as far as she is concerned, the human world is a "storm of ill will" and both fairies and humans felt equally "scary, disgusting".
    The only thing she saw in her dreams while sleeping was this "storm of ill will". Originally, it wouldn't be surprising if this condition made her go mad and caused her to forsake Britain. Still, the only thing that served as a source of hope for her was a small blue star that shined all by itself beyond the storm.

    Artoria Caster fulfilled her duties in the Fairy Nation and vanished.
    Afterwards, having consecrated her body to the holy sword and turned into the holy sword itself, she became an anthropic principle auxiliary device that aids "those who oppose a threat that endangers the star".
    Its name is Artoria Avalon.
    Her appearance in the Third Ascension is actually the proper figure of the one summoned here. What we see in the First and Second Ascension is but an emulation of the way of being of a "departed someone", which created her... not the memories as a fairy of paradise, but the memories of spring from when she travelled as a Child of Prophecy.
  2. Master of Chaos's Avatar
    Yoshitsune (Avenger)
    Taira no Kagekiyo

    An enigmatic character that appears in the Heike Monogatari.
    In the Battle of Yashima, he came to be known as "Akushichi Byoue(1) Kagekiyo from Kazusa" by the army of both sides, but his personal history remains unclear.
    Although he claimed to come "from Kazusa" in the Heike Monogatari, his specific origins differ among the various sources.

    "Akushichi Byoue Kagekiyo from Kazusa" would soon be called "Taira no Kagekiyo", the avenger of the Heike...
    Eventually reaching a point that he became known as a onryou-like existence, always plotting revenge against the Genji.

    Something that kills the Genji.
    A Genji slaughtering device.
    Its mentality is already like that of a machine that acts automatically, better described as an onryou of revenge.

    In regard to the joys and pains as an individual, it does not demonstrate an attitude of someone who experiences them.
    Whether that is because it already abandoned them, or simply became "difficult to feel them"---

    A being that, for some reason, has condensed both the military exploits accomplished by the samurai of the Heike and the deep-seated grudge of fleeing soldiers towards the Genji into the individual called "Taira no Kagekiyo".
    In fact, Yorimoto suffered 37 attacks from Kagekiyo and failed to capture him at every time.
    Whoever it may be, anyone who holds desire for vengeance against the Genji will eventually turn into Kagekiyo and bare their fangs at the Genji.

    Regardless if they are truly Kagekiyo.
    Regardless if they are truly from the Heike.
    It no longer matters if they are the person himself.
    Those who resent the Genji are absorbed into "Taira no Kagekiyo".
    The real Kagekiyo may have actually fled to the Chuugoku region and even spent his remaining years in relative happiness. But unrelated to that, "Taira no Kagekiyo" takes revenge on the Genji while bearing a deep-seated grudge.

    The Kagekiyo legends are numerous, and historical landmarks that are (allegedly) related to Kagekiyo exist all over the country. Just like, when speaking of the Genji, you similarly find historical landmarks that are (allegedly) related to Yoshitsune.
    In this manifestation, Kagekiyo has evidently became one with Minamoto no Yoshitsune.

    In other words...
    "The warrior called Minamoto no Yoshitsune is actually Taira no Kagekiyo".

    Was Yoshitsune absorbed as one of Kagekiyo's component materials due to "possessing deep-seated grudge towards the Genji"? Or maybe, Yoshitsune's enormous hatred became the core for Kagekiyo as an Avenger...?

    For a time, Yoshitsune was the step-son of Taira no Kiyomori. One might probably say that the means by how Yoshitsune (who harbored a deep-seated grudge) became one with the onryou of the Heike had already been arranged since her previous life.

    An attack of malediction, unleashed by imbuing the deep-seated grudge of the Heike in the sword.

    Nothing in this world is omnipresent, immutable. Thus, an immortal warrior or a perpetual nation are also impossible--- Such natural order shaves off the target's existence itself as a blade.
    Maybe due to the sublimation of the anecdotes of it employing a very long sword, once the True Name is released, its weapon changes from two Azamaru into a single, giant blade.
    Although this is also effective against those other than the Genji, as expected it is most effective against the Genji.

    Kiichi Hougen
    Kiichi Hougen

    A Buddhist onmyouji and a strategist.
    A being told to be the founder of the Kyouhachi-ryuu, the oldest style of swordsmanship in Saigoku(1).
    She imparted combat techniques to the young Ushiwakamaru, teaching even the innermost secrets of strategy from the Liu Tao and the San Lue... but not out of her own volition. A fearsome great mentor who once tried to kill Ushiwakamaru out of indignation upon discovering that he seduced her daughter in order to steal a glance at these texts.

    Her name is Kiichi Hougen.
    And her true identity is---?

    Simply broadminded.
    She laughs off at small details without paying much attention to them.

    At a first glance, she appears as tolerant and humane, a good-natured person with a trustworthy behavior.
    However, she is actually endowed with sensitivities far removed from that of humans. Upon spending a long time talking and taking care of her, it will probably become apparent that she is "different from humans on a fundamental level".

    She is not human.

    The superhuman being called Kiichi Hougen is often equated with the daitengu known as Kurama Tengu, aka. Soujoubou of Mt. Kurama.
    In the "Kiichi Hougen Sanryaku no Maki" (a joururi from the Edo period), it has been recorded that Kiichi Hougen's true identity is Soujoubou, the tengu of Mt. Kurama.

    In this work as well...
    Kiichi Hougen is not human.
    But a daitengu.

    A spiritual species affiliated with natural elements such as mountains, the sky, wind, fire and etc. Although different from the so called divine spirits, she is an existence closer to them than human beings.

    Although a being that originally would have no relations to humans, depending on circumstances, she would occasionally get in touch with people and bestow something to them - just like in cases such as Ushiwakamaru and the Kyouhachi-ryuu.
    Things that she bestow include knowledge, technology, secret techniques and esoterica... but not limited to those.
    Once displeased, she will probably end up sending them to hell - quite literally.
    For a daitengu on the level of Soujoubou of Mt. Kurama, opening the gates of hell is not much trouble.

    She has no grasp on the finer details of the livelihood of the human species.

    That being said, when she feels like it, she sometimes grants the wishes of those small beings and even fosters individuals who conceal dormant talents, such as Ushiwakamaru.
    Although she does not quite understand people, she "does not hate" them.
    In addition, she also "does not hate" animals and insects to the same extent.

    She loves banquets.
    Her pet saying is "kah, ka, ka"(2)

    What Assassin, Kiichi Hougen employs as her Noble Phantasm is also one of those feather fans (hauchiwa).

    Its destructive power can be described as simply tremendous.
    Rather than Kiichi Hougen's dispositions as an onmyouji or strategist, this is a Noble Phantasm that strongly embodies her disposition as the Kurama Tengu, aka. daitengu Soujoubou of Mt. Kurama.

    Amor (Caren)
    Amor (Caren)

    A "god of love" from Roman mythology.
    A Pseudo-Servant that has the young girl Caren Ortensia as the vessel. As a result of the Authority of the God Amor being a great match to Caren's personality, she was reborn in the figure of the miraculous perfect fusion divine spirit Caren-chan (or so she says).

    Upon the incineration of the anthropic principle, this human sacrifice in the form of a young girl was chosen as a Servant from the anthropic principle. Although her behavior is eccentric, the basis for it all is a "devotion towards the world".

    Frankly speaking, the personality of the young girl called Caren is "dry, cool and cynical".
    While her true nature is that of a young girl, she will never speak any sweet words.
    A devil that is almost like a holy woman.
    Or maybe, a holy woman that is almost like a devil.
    Bitter, resigned, merciless, a harlot with a wicked tongue.
    On top of that, she is a holy woman endowed with the heart of a "pure young girl".
    She possesses a strong conviction and faith, truly believing that her life is to be dedicated to the Lord and that she is meant to offer her services the Lord in Heavens and the people that He loves.

    When such an young girl was put in charge of the post of the God Amor, what ran through her whole body was not a repulsion towards "a deity that does not belong to her creed", but a sense of duty that was much like a lightning strike.
    Even if it is from a different religious sect, the post of a "evangelist of love" is something wonderful.
    "Wouldn't I simply be answering to the Lord's love by performing this duty to my utmost?"---
    "Of course that unilaterally amending the fate of others makes me excited!"---
    Just as she was burning up in this manner, Caren renamed herself as Caren C. Ortensia and stood up in order to make Chaldea's Valentine's Day into something good.

    Her spiritual core is composed by Eros (the God of Love from Greek mythology) and Amor (the God of Love from Roman mythology).

    Despite introducing herself as Amor while in her angel form, upon reaching Second Ascension (which is actually her default condition), she stops claiming to be Amor and completely rejects (finds fault) in Eros. And yet, she still disguises herself as the angel of love Cupid, which is often described as the symbol of these two deities.

    This is all because Caren's own deep piety defines "love" as "uncompensated love"(1). Amor aside, this is a fundamental rejection of Eros (sexual love).

    There are four different variations of love in Greek philosophy: sexual love, neighbourly love, familial love and the uncompensated love towards others.
    The uncompensated love that she knows... the "God's love (Agape)... does not comprise sexual love, which is regarded as vulgar form of love.

    Consequentially, although Caren is a Pseudo-Servant of the "God of Love" known as Amor, her roots are those of the evangelist of an even greater love that rejects both Amor and Eros.
    The antinomy of this queerish idiosyncrasy as a Servant can be said to be very typical of Caren, who possesses sadistic tastes despite having a predisposition to masochism.

    Rather than the Caren from "Fate/Hollow ataraxia", she is closer to the one seen in "Fate/Tiger Colosseum".
    Whenever she is attending to her Church duties as a supervisor, Caren remains taciturn young girl that never speaks of "her opinion, her convenience". But in cases like this one, when she is not bound to her "post as a sister", she behaves like the mastermind of an incident - speaking, working and plotting quite a lot.
    (Although we're calling her a mastermind, she does not causes incidents out of wickedness in her heart, but rather is simply doing things that should bring good results to people).

    ...that being said, putting all that aside, she has a truly bothersome personality in which both sadism and masochism coexist. She loves to see people suffer and also loves how her own body suffers. Because of that, even as she plans a good livelihood for people, she single-mindedly prepares hard tortures for the sake of its achievement.

    She approves of money collection, but that is because money "rules over people" and is a "symbol of authority".
    God was wished upon so people would have something to love and rule over them.
    For Caren, who became one with the Lord's will by means of the limits of prayers (or so she says), accumulating money is a joy in itself.

    Although the Church teaches that "one must not amass wealth in the land", Caren does not think that "money = wealth", nor does she have any attachments to the collected cash.
    She simply gets excited in seeing it accumulate and does not particularly think of "using money to buy something I like" or "enjoying luxuries with this money" at all. Instead, it seems that she even feel that "maybe I should just burn it after I done with it".



    In order to exorcise demons, she devoted her body to a great variety of people・animals, always wishing for their happiness. Still, it seems that there is only one person for whom she held a simple, human-like love... whom she wished happiness to for her own sake. Even now, she still holds on to the memories and wishes of that love in the bottom of her heart.

    Item Construction: A

    Predisposition for Spiritual Medium Affliction: EX

    It becomes easy for her to be afflicted by bad statuses such as poison, curse and burn. Also, Caren's own attack power increases while she is afflicted by such bad statuses.
    From a masochist, she turn into a fearsome sadist. Still, it is not something that she can intentionally produce.

    Divine Core of a Goddess: B
    Originally, this would be the "Divinity" of Amor, but it became a Divine Core of a Goddess due to the strong convictions of the young girl that is his vessel.
    For this young girl, the only one who has true "divinity" is the Great Father.

    Faith of Steel: A
    Caren's version of the Craft Essence "Training of Steel".
    This albino girl, who was originally supposed to die soon after she was born, grew while defying people's expectations.

    She has acquired resistances to fear, charm and Buster attacks as a passive skill.

    Holy Shroud of Valentinus: A
    Eros (sexual love).
    Caren originally made habitual use of the "Holy Shroud of Magdala", but she is currently employing a "holy shroud of lovers".
    It seems that she named it Valentinus in order to match with Chaldea's Valentine's Day.

    Golden Arrow: A

    No matter how you look at it, this is an Anti-World Noble Phantasm, but she insists in calling it an Anti-Unit to the bitter end.
    The "love" that Caren speaks of is the God's love that loves all of humanity unconditionally and without compensation. In other words, the Agape.

    In "Tiger Colosseum", Caren once used a morning star "whose weight was proportional to the size of the love of the owner". Supposedly, since Caren loves all of humanity, the hammer's weight equals the weight of Earth. This Noble Phantasm is a FGO variation of it.

    Also, it is the "beam of love" that is infinite, while the uncompensated part denotes Caren's feelings of "giving it free of charge".



    (1) I refrain from calling this "free love", least it get confused with an entirely different concept


    Galatea
    Galatea

    A character from the story of King Pygmalion, one of the Greek myths.

    Pygmalion was the king of Cyprus Island and a sculptor. Despite remaining single due becoming disillusioned with real women, he once carved his "ideal woman" on a white ivory. Falling deeply in love with this sculpture that he himself had created, Pygmalion presented it with clothes and jewels. Even began talking to, embracing and kissing it as if a lover.
    He wished from the bottom of his heart that the sculpture would become a living woman.
    Upon seeing that (or maybe receiving his prayers), the goddess Aphrodite accepted Pygmalion's prayers and bestowed life upon the sculpture.
    Supposedly, after that sculpture turned into a human, she became Pygmalion's wife and even bore him a child---

    People who loves inorganic substances
    Carving, fine arts

    ○Dislikes
    Earthquakes (for they are the archenemies of sculptures)

    People who handle objects roughly

    Without a doubt, she was born due to King Pygmalion's love for dolls.
    A love so strong that would even lead a god to grant his wish, possibly being no different from madness.
    Having been born from the King's overly strong love (madness) and spent her entire life with Pygmalion, it is only natural that Galatea herself would eventually that love (madness).

    Consequentially, Servant Galatea is summoned as a Berserker.

    "I was born from King Pygmalion's love, and exist to convey that love. Ladies and gentlemen, I hope that you too can find true love..."

    The one who gave life to the sculpture called Galatea and turned it into a human was the Goddess Aphrodite.
    Now, where did the "life" bestowed here came from?

    ...actually, what lies at her roots is "Aphrodite herself".
    Of course, not the main body of the deity, but merely a small fraction that was detached and made independent, so it could act as the core of her component materials.
    Still, a deity is a deity.
    If anyone possessing eyes on the level of a god were to look closely, it would become clear to them that the basis for the being called Galatea is hopelessly Aphrodite.
    The power that she employs in battle is also originated from Aphrodite's divinity, but since Galatea herself is not self-aware that she belongs to Aphrodite's genealogy, she perceives this as "Lady Aphrodite continues to bestow me with her divine protection even now".
    Galatea believes that Aphrodite is a wonderful deity of love that even now bestow her with divine protection, a goddess that she is greatly indebted to.

    It is uncertain why Aphrodite - who lives for the sake of extravagant love - did such a thing, but...
    Aphrodite is regarded to have a dual nature - the aggressive Pandemos that governs over death and the likes; and the Urania that governs over pure love. It has been conjectured that the latter aspect might probably have felt something about the "love" of King Pygmalion.

    As her fundamental raison d'être, this love has genially taken root within her heart and will never be forgotten.
    In addition, this skill is also involved with the use of the techniques obtained during the happy days that she shared with King Pygmalion - such as housework and the carving skills that she learned from the King.

    Sculpture Maiden: A
    A skill that denotes the fact that she is a being born from a sculpture produced out of carved ivory.
    Her spiritual body as a Servant also possesses the disposition of inorganic substances.
    This is because the mystery components of the anecdote engraved in human history are originated from the fact that "she was a sculpture".
    In other words, she is fundamentally in a condition of conceptual overlap, in which she "is both a person and a sculpture".
    Even if her body is damaged, it is possible to restore it to what it was before simply by putting her back together. During combat, she can also become more solid than your average Servant by steeling herself.
    Supposedly, the proportion of "person" to "sculpture" is controlled by her will.
    It is possible to become both 100% human and 100% sculpture.

    As both his wife and a being born from that chisel, Servant Galatea possesses it as a Noble Phantasm.

    To begin with, what he carved out of ivory was a maiden of such shape and quality that it seemed like she was actually alive.
    A divine skill with a chisel that produces sculptures with a workmanship beyond human understanding - capable of making anyone who sees it believe it's actually alive; of causing even the very person who carved it to fall in love; and leading a deity to think it would be fine to bestow life to it.
    Aphrodite's blessings have been infused in this Noble Phantasm, so things carved out with it are given life and begin to move around - almost like a reproduction of Pygmalion's legend.

    A carved bird will spread its wings to the sky. A snake will extend its tongue and crawl. A rose will blossom amidst its thorns. Just like Galatea, these will all be "both sculptures and lifeforms" (in regards to their colours and material smoothness).
    However, they cannot live forever and will turn back into mere exquisite sculptures once Galatea cuts off their supply of magical energy.
    Also, no matter how exquisite the carving, it cannot produces lifeforms on the level of "humans".

    Galatea herself believes this to be caused by "my lack of love towards the object". Conversely, it also results into her respect for Pygmalion increasing.
    "King Pygmalion is truly incredible!"

    Poh. Poh. Whooh. (Spin a thread)
    Tok. Tok. Shaah. (Weave a loom)
    Let us then tailor a lovely attire with the perfected fabric.
    Maybe an evening dress of the latest fashion? Or even gentlemanly three-piece suit?
    You can also leave things avant-garde to me.
    No matter what sort of clothes, I shall make them as you wish.
    After all, this is my repayment.
    A repayment of kindness, to recompense you.

    Polite, kind and hard-working. And, above all, someone who possesses a sense of obligation that is way too strong. She is that sort of character.
    She becomes deeply impressed by even the most trivial favour and tries her utmost to recompense it. Or rather, she simply cannot stand not returning that favour.
    The greatest repayment that she can do is to "make clothes".
    She performs everything herself, from spinning threads to tailoring, and her skill can be described as truly god-level.

    What she likes is "idols".
    If there is a live performance occurring on the east, she will participate in high spirits. If there is a handshake event in the west, she will come rushing while carrying a present.
    Should her favorite wear a costume that she tailored, she may even be deported back to the Throne due to overwhelming feelings of gratitude and reverence. So be careful!

    In addition, she is the type that does not clean her own room.
    Although she neatly tidy up the "places where others pass by", the bedroom and storage room that are only for herself end up in truly terrible conditions.
    They have the atmosphere of a bird's nest that just exploded, with used clothes, notes about design, fashion magazines from many nations, empty bottles of high-class alcohol (she is quite the heavy drinker) scattered about... this sort of cluttered room is not something you should peek into, okay?

    There is a type of narrative technique called doubutsu houontan(1).
    Stories whose plot involves birds and animals that have been saved by humans bringing about befitting fortunes in order to recompense that favour.
    In Japan, the "Tsuru no Ongaeshi" is particularly famous.
    Miss Crane is a being shaped while having the crane from said "Tsuru no Ongaeshi" as her core image.
    Devoting herself from the bottom of her heart to her benefactor, she works to weave a loom made out of the feathers extracted from her own body. Should you see her figure as she works, she will turn back into a crane and depart.
    The only difference from the folklore lies in the fact she can pull off everything from weaving up a fabric to tailoring clothes. This is clearly a characteristic that belongs only to "her" who has manifested here and now.

    After materializing in this era due to certain circumstances, she has been wandering around all over the world until now. While traveling, she met with and was saved by many people (there were even some Servants among them). She remembers all those debts of gratitude, and has solemnly pledged in her heart to "repay them someday, without fail".
    The piece of bread that was given to her, on that day.
    The warm futon that she was allowed to sleep in, on that day.
    The front premium seat that was yielded to her, on that day.
    She has not forgotten even a single one of them.

    Let's return the favour.
    Let's sincerely recompense them.
    Indeed, to "you" too.

    ...I had grown tired of everything, and my magical energy had also dried up.
    "
    It's no good. This is as far as I go."
    Still, my fate is to "come across" a helping hand exactly when I'm in a predicament.
    Suddenly, a soft voice called out to me.
    When I looked up, there was a gentleman with lovely features. He seemed kind but, at the same time, had a somewhat soft, easygoing and even sloppy aura.
    Yet, for some reason... he also seemed to be working awfully hard for something. At any rate, he was a curious gentleman.
    It is very unusual for me to be perplexed on how to interact with someone in our first meeting. While I was at loss, he gently took me into his care.



    ---Chaldea, was its name.
    A place where a very difficult, important work was being done.
    I ended up residing in one of its lodgings, a chamber called "Lostroom".
    Apparently, it was a place nobody gets close to, nor tries to peek into.
    Oh, that skylight... it reminded me of my lodging in Paris.
    I decided to rest my feathers here for a while.
    Still, still, my new benefactor. One day for sure, please let me return this favour.
    Even if you don't need a dress tailored, I shall devote all my efforts and magecraft in order to grant your "wish".
    ...why do you laugh, in a such a troubled manner?
    Truly, you're a strange person.




    Oh!
    Oh!
    Oh!
    He has been lost. He disappeared. Why? Why again?
    He won't come back. It is impossible for him to come back.
    Still, at least. At least, at least. Let this reach him.

    Even if the "Throne" has forever forgotten you.
    I won't forget.
    Everyone at Chaldea, probably feel the same.
    So... I shall present a "proof" for you, who was once here.

    Something to be lost, to someone who was lost.
    Something brilliant, to someone who is far away.

    This Noble Phantasm manifests in the present era the ideal clothes, the final goal that all tailor craftsmen and fashion designers pursue, even if just for a while.
    Its degree of perfection is not something that human intellect can understand, boasting a beauty and comfort to wear akin to the "Tennyou's feathery robes" that appear in the Tennyou legends from all over Japan. It is quite literally, flawless.

    The power possessed by this costume is exceedingly simple: "giving hope to whoever wears it".
    It really is just that.
    Hope, hope and even more hope.
    If there is hope in their hearts, then people can move forward.
    They can surmount any hardships and horrors... this costume bestows sufficient basis for them to believe in that, which is felt through their skin.

    However, producing such a costume imposes serious exhaustion on the maker.
    After being dressed in that glory, you will then take notice.
    "Oh, she has left. She flew away towards beyond that evening scenery, leaving behind only this supreme garment as a keepsake".




    (1) roughly, 'animal kindness repayment tales'. It is a variation of animal anthropomorphism particular of Asian countries.

    (2) this is an oddity. The first part of the name is simply an old idiom concerning perfect beauty. The second part, however, denotes different things when you see how is it written in kanji and furigana.

    Mysterious Idol X (Alter)
    Mysterious Idol X (Alter)

    The costume (dress) of wishes is for the sake of a live performance.
    The singing (voice) of hopes is for the sake of an unfulfilled dream.

    Tonight, this young girl becomes an idol and makes a gallant debut in shining battleground (stage).

    The one who lost her way into the idol-supremacist Singularity was, in a sense, the "movie version" of A-chan(1).
    Compared to her normal condition, she is a little bit more emotional and energetic. Also, the cost for drawing her is higher.

    A greedy Singer Song Foreigner of musical composition・lyrics writing, singing, musical performance and battle performance.

    If you further trace back her origins, the original model of "Mysterious Heroine X (Alter)" comes from a reality TV show that won a reasonable amount of popularity in the Universe world.
    There were the "1st Season, Academy Volume" (in which she partnered with Mysterious Heroine X) and the "2nd Season, Villain Volume" (in which she aspired to revive the Dark Rounds while implicitly obeying the Villains Alliance).

    The "movie version" was a special episode that occurred between them.
    In which she had to work hard in order to become the #1 Idol Servant of the Universe due to unexpected circumstances, but...?

    Well... you see... as expected, something like a moonwalk robot that attacks by turning the Milky Way into cymbal is simply too much of an inflation.

    While her easygoing attitude and verbal expressions haven't changed much when compared to her Berserker, once a villain-self, her emotions have been lightly untied, becoming capable of smiling spontaneously and even telling jokes herself.
    The feelings of wanting to entertain and make people happy were brought to the surface.
    On the other hand, she unintentionally ends up showing the weaknesses and irritations that she had been trying to not expose to others.
    The fluctuations of the heart that were nothing but hindrances when brandishing a sword.
    She was surprised to find out that emotions like those also existed within her, and that musical compositions and lyrics writing might be enjoyable once you got the gist of them...
    ...she started to become aware of such things.
    That if it is possible to influence people through songs and music, without relying on the fear and violence of a villain, then it might be fine to try and become more honest with herself.

    Morgan le Fay
    Morgan

    The Queen that dominates the Lostbelt・Fairy Nation Britain.
    She established an absolute monarchy in the Lostbelt Britain and enforced a tyrannical rule for 2,000 years, tormenting the fairies.
    A fairy of the highest order, and a genius magus that obtained the Spear of the Beyond, Rhongomynyad as a magecraft.

    In the Pan Human History, she was a fairy child - a scion of the British Isles - conceived by Igraine, the daughter of Tintagel. Later, she and Artoria would be treated as sisters as a formality (Morgan's mother, Igraine, married with King Uther).(1)

    "Artoria is nothing but a "king of the people", manufactured by the schemes of humans.
    I am surely the "true king" that inherited the mystery of the British Isles." Aware of this fact, Morgan would eventually come to hate her father King Uther, her younger sister Artoria and all the humans who did not obey her. This became the main cause for the ruin of the British Isles.

    In the Pan Human History, she gave birth to several children, many who became Knights of the Round Table.
    Gawain, Gaheris, Gareth and Agrarian were the children of Morgan with the King Orkney. Mordred was a homunculus created by employing Artoria's blood and semen, for the sake of defeating her.

    A cruel queen that believes only in her own power.
    It is not like she doesn't believe in people, but she expects nothing out of them.
    Regards the "lawful domination of the British Isles" as foremost.

    She hates humans, hates fairies, hates the weak, hates the ugly, hates equality and hates peace. From the perspective of the masses, her personality is like the very "personification of evil".

    Still, although described as "hate", that does mean she sees them "unnecessary", but merely "things that are incompatible with her".
    Morgan views justice as the "condition of being under control", while evil is the "condition where those who disturb my control exist".
    As such, Morgan's personal "likes・dislikes" are unrelated to to her "good・evil" as a ruler.
    Even if it is something that she hates, she will fairly accept and pardon anything that is necessary for domination. The extremeness・absoluteness of those standards is almost like that of a heartless machine.

    Be as it may, Morgan has a heart as well.
    She just no longer can strongly experience things such as joy, sadness, hatred, indignation, desire and love.
    After a long time of single-mindedly safeguarding Britain, Morgan's heart has grown completely cold.

    There is just one passion that is still lit in her chest---
    The wish that her past self continued to crave for.
    Even now, it is only the purpose of "dominating Britain" that continues to stimulate her.

    ...even though, during a long journey, she came to realize the fact that this is not human-like childhood dream, but something derived from being born that way.



    Supposedly, the Morgan from Pan Human History was lewd, cruel and self-centered. Her personality was truly the model of a wicked woman. But this Morgan turned into a talented woman after having those components beaten and quieten down during a long journey.
    Something like a femme fatale that grew frustrated, or maybe repented of her ways.
    The pleasures between man and woman, the excitement of abusing others, the delight of having her own way; according to Morgan, those are all "boring. I've already lost interest in such things." (her own words).
    However, since those traits have merely quieten down, it might be possible that her past cruelty, bad taste can relapse if she were to face a situation・dilemma that can drive her into a corner.

    Camelot - the castle of white walls that Morgan spent her lifetime wishing to enter, but was never able to.
    The very rules of the world... in other words, the "anthropic principle" itself decided to not make Morgan the king of Britain.
    That unfulfilled wish changed into grief, and finally turned into hatred.
    A twisted desire to dominate and sense of entitlement.
    A burning nostalgia and rage against humans.
    And also, the rancor towards Artoria - who sat in the throne of Camelot despite being the same existence as her - ended up turning Morgan into the "one who leads the Round Table to ruin".
    This is such way of being expressed as a magecraft.
    Morgan's love and hate that attempts to traverse and destroy in an instant a road whose end simply cannot be reached.

    The one Morgan must defeat is not King Arthur.
    She returned from the beyond and became a witch that curses the world in order overthrow the very fate that once attempted to destroy the fairies of Britain for the sake of humans - the "anthropic principle" itself.

    Fairy Knight Gawain
    Barghest

    One of the Knights of the Round Table from the Fairy Nation Britain.
    A fairy knight labelled(1) with the Saint Graph of Gawain, a Knight of the Round Table from Pan Human History.
    Despite belonging to the "Fang Clan" that are endowed with tenacious bodies, her outward appearance is that of a humanoid Saint Graph.
    The most feared fairy knight in the Fairy Nation.
    Also called "Gawain, the philanderer", "Gawain, the glutton".

    Her name as a fairy is Barghest.
    In Pan Human History, this is the name of a fairy that appears in the north of England.
    It materializes in the form of a chained dog, possessing burning eyes and horns.
    In the city, it is known as a fairy that notifies a death, supposedly appearing whenever someone dies.
    Also, when a person possessing an important role in the city dies, it parades across town while bringing along many subordinates (dogs).

    Outside the city, it transforms from a fairy that announces death to one that bestows death, appearing frequently in the plateaus.
    It devours the travellers it comes across.
    Believed to be a variation of the black dog, a fairy folklore handed down all over England.

    ○Personality
    Diplomatic and passive.
    She declares her will in a straightforward manner, without concealing her own feelings, and also confirms the feelings of the other party.
    A knight that boldly throws out her chest without feeling ashamed of anyone, but her actions (especially military actions) themselves are those of a prudent who moves after properly assessing the situation.
    She draws her sword only after assessing the circumstances of both parties (not just one side's convenience) and deciding "very well, let's exterminate the weaker one".
    Due the manner how she mercilessly tramples down the weak once she stands in the battlefield, she has been portrayed as a ruthless knight.

    Despite her stiff personality, since she was raised as a noble (receiving a scrupulous education), she fundamentally has a gentle way of thinking and there is even enough flexibility to appreciate jokes.
    However, clever jokes and parlance that appease the general mood are not her strong points, so she never takes the initiative to crack jokes herself.

    Maybe due to regarding the laws of the jungle as absolute, she tends to let her guard down towards those she sense as "strong", growing intimate and eventually becoming lovers. She is actually lonely person with a propensity to fall in love.
    In the past, she had liaisons with lovers of several races (making no distinction between man and woman, fairy or human). But those relationships never lasted more than a month, and she soon found herself single again.
    This resulted in rumours of her being a philandering fairy, but Fairy Knight Tristan sarcastically says that "I just grow bored easily; it's not like I have a propensity to fall in love like you".

    Born from a fairy lineage, in human terms she would be something akin to the daughter of an earl.
    Although she behaves stout-heartedly・cold-heartedly as a fairy knight, her true nature is kind and easily moved to tears.

    Fairy Knight Tristan
    Baobhan Sith

    One of the Knights of the Round Table from the Fairy Nation Britain.
    A fairy knight labelled with the Saint Graph of Tristan, a Knight of the Round Table from Pan Human History.
    The "daughter" of Queen Morgan that dominates Lostbelt Britain, she receives a favourable treatment as her successor.
    In the Lostbelt Britain where there is no need magecraft, she was one of the two fairies who were raised as a witch.

    Her name as a fairy is Baobhan Sith.
    A female fairy transmitted in Scotland.
    With a name that literally means "fairy woman", it supposedly appears during the night to absorb the life of humans, leading them to die. It enjoys blood and is weak against sunlight.

    Many fairies bring both "benefits" and "harms", but Baobhan Sith is a malignant fairy that brings nothing but harm.
    Its appearance is just like that of a beautiful human female, but only the legs it hides beneath a long skirt are that of a fairy - with its heels being like "deer hooves".

    ○Personality
    Diplomatic and passive.
    She possesses the temperament of a ruler that impudently speaks her own desires and pushes around the surrounding people in order to make them come true.
    An ephemeral hedonist who cares only for feeling good in the present time.
    As typical of fairies, she prefers fun things. However, since the only "fun" thing she knows is the cries of suffering from the weak, she consequentially tends heavily towards deeds that trample and trifle with the weak - regardless of them being humans or fairies.
    (Due to never being loved by anyone, and also receiving praise from her "mother" Morgan "only when oppressing the weak", she ended up learning that those were fun things)

    A witch child that combined the image of an admirable young girl that endeavours to be loved by her mother, with the haughtiness of a princess that sees the kingdom that will one day be hers as nothing but a toy.
    She seriously feel sick upon seeing benevolence and whitewashing, thoroughly disparaging them. When asked for a reason, her answer is "Isn't it obvious!? Because it makes me bored!"

    Baobhan Sith lacked interest in most things, and souring the general mood was only hobby she truly had. However, the stories told by Beryl about the "civilization from Pan Human History" made her eyes sparkle, so imitating the Pan Human History ended up becoming a personal obsession of her.

    "Wouldn't it be fun to have a tournament of military movements in a historical castle?
    Of course, everyone other than the first place would be massacred as
    penalty.☆"

    In the course of that, she became possessed by the charm of the "shoes (heels)" from Pan Human History, turning into a shoes collector.
    If it is for the sake of shoes, she is willing to put on genuine efforts and even dreams about, in the future, producing shoes more stylish than any craftsman from Pan Human History.
    ...in the bedroom of such Baobhan Sith (princess), a collection of fairies' bare feet that have been cut off at the heels is enshrined like a treasure.

    A draconic species and a divine spirit that embodied the concept of "obstacle" itself.
    Something that dams up the world.
    Upon manifesting as a Servant, that has been minimalized into a human form.

    Although often depicted as an evil god that brings about droughts, it has also been interpreted as a "giant of winter".

    If Vritra embodies the very "condition where water is absent (has been dammed up)" - such as a severe winter - then the Thunder God Indra that opposes it embodies the very "condition where that (the hardships from droughts and winter) was defeated, and a merciful rain falls after water has been released".

    The reason why it has been summoned in a female body is a mystery.
    Given the episode of how it died after becoming spellbound by the beauty Rambha, who was dispatched in accordance to one of Indra's schemes, it may be imitating said Rambha. Or maybe, by becoming a beauty herself, she is displaying her determination of "not falling for Indra's coward tricks again".

    Fundamentally, it is a being that transcended the concept of gender. Since its true nature does not change either way, Servant Vritra has nothing but a female disposition that is just enough to match its current form.

    Having an absolute necessity such a water dammed up is, of course, an agony for humans.
    It is wicked and evil. Thus, she is a wicked dragon.
    However, as a matter of fact, that was also something necessary for the world.
    Just like the discharge of a dam, the breath of a sprout in spring, in this world there is such a thing like "a vigor only born after being held back once".
    What she truly governs over is the "obstacle that is a necessary evil for the sake of evolution", "evolution that surely awaits beyond a surmounted obstacle".

    More than anything else, she finds pleasure in seeing people (or even the world itself) grow after overcoming the hardships and obstacles that she prepared.
    This is not affection, but a sense of enjoyment that is unilateral and condescending - truly befitting of a god.
    That is why she does not hold back nor shows any reservations.
    Despite preparing an obstacle that could even be seen as an absolute evil, that is not because she has any wishes to exterminate humans in particular.
    She just wants to see a stronger future, stronger world, stronger humanity.
    In other words, a sadism towards the entire world.
    Putting in another way, she is an overly harsh world trainer and audience.
    Someone who believes in the strength of people while being "in the evil side".

    Although Ganesha was also a god of obstacles originally, due to the effects of religious beliefs, his current disposition was mostly converted into that of a "god of fortune that removes obstacles".
    That is not the case with Vritra, who stoically "produces obstacles" to the bitter end.
    There is no leniency in her actions. Much less compassion.
    She simply wants to enjoy herself in her own self-indulgence--- that of seeing the figure of people, the world as they surmount her obstacles and grow.

    Destined Divine Enemy: A
    Although Vritra is depicted in many forms across legends, her role itself never changes.
    Fundamentally a being that opposes god; this skill denotes her immutable position and meaning of existence.

    Eternally Indestructible Demon: EX
    Supposedly, even if defeated by Indra, Vritra will once again revive after enough time has passed and begin her conflict with the god anew.
    A skill that denotes such eternal repetition, indestructibility that could be even likened to a natural phenomenon.
    The confrontation between "Vritra, who dams up water (brings about droughts, or maybe imprisons it on mountains and clouds)" and "Indra, who releases it by means of thunderstorms" was not a one time thing. Rather, it is something that has been repeated since the remote past and will also continue on eternally in the future.
    Possibly, this is the very primordial religious belief in regards to gods and nature.
    By means of an intensity equivalent to the reverence that people had towards nature when they turned it into a god, Vritra rules as an indestructible demon.

    Rank:
    EX
    Type: Anti-World
    Range: 9~99

    A Noble Phantasm crowned with one of Vritra's aliases, meaning "best among the Asuras".
    By employing an army of demons (be them underlings or offshoots of her own self), she covers the world in accordance to her own meaning of existence, causing the target to become isolated. Just like how the "mountain" in the legends of "Vritra imprisoning waters in a mountain with its own body" can be interpreted as a "cloud", that appearance is much like an ominous cloud falling across the world.

    At the same time that she is a wicked dragon, Vritra has also been depicted as an Asura (demonic being), even possessing the name of Asurendra (king of Asuras).
    In the Mahabharata, there are descriptions of Vritra leading a large army of demonic beings (such as Kalakeyas and Rakshasas) to harass the Indra and the other gods. Consequentially, she can also employ this as an army of pure violence, and not just as an Authority to "dam up something".




    (1) the Japanese term 堰界 (ikai) has no direct equivalent in English and this is the closest translation I could come up with. Most likely, this is a completely original word born out of a pun with the term 異界 (ikai; spirit world)


    Karna (Santa)
    Karna (Santa)

    Karna turned into a Santa due many circumstances.

    Christmas is a once in a year occasion when everybody "wish for a present".
    Once he realized that Santa Claus is the very being who take on those wishes upon himself, and that he had the power to meet those expectations, Karna naturally had no hesitations about shouldering that role.
    "Santa, please give me a present". He quite naturally answer to such wishes from the children with a "I see. Then I shall present you". The type of Santa Claus who grants wishes neither too much or too little.
    Cool and with a lack of friendliness, but he is by no means cold. It is just that his kindness is hard to be conveyed.

    For some reason, his fighting methodology turned into a strait-laced boxing style.
    Thanks to that, he ended up remembering the training period in which he practiced diligently bare fists along with his brethren, and that apparently increased his "feelings of desire towards pure martial training and his own growth".

    Although it may appear as if he is no different from usual, in a sense one could also say that his mentality became "younger".
    Despite maintaining himself always cool, he can also behave in a passionate manner akin to the protagonist of a shonen manga just like that.

    His AGI parameter has been optimized for factors such as the punching speed and stepping speed of his boxing style.

    Riding: -
    Due having acquired a boxing style, he has lost the Riding skill despite being in the Saber Class.
    Although he is a Santa, Karna does not ride a sleigh. A boxer should just silently walk (do road work).

    Divinity: A
    The fact that he is the son of the Sun God Surya does not change even after he became a Santa.
    "Santa is the sun of the children. If anything, one could even say that Surya himself is a Santa".
    There was a Santa who indifferently said such a thing at the cafeteria.
    And behind him, Arjura kept making a puzzled face from beginning to end while eating curry.

    Hard Puncher: EX
    A skill that denotes the sheer might of his punching attacks.
    He possesses a sure-kill fist that can knock out the enemy with a single blow.

    Foot Santa: A
    A wondrous skill that combined together footwork and Santa Claus.
    The foundation of Santa Karna's fighting style.
    A skill that denotes the footwork, stepping techniques seen in boxing.
    In addition to things such as appropriate distance control in accordance to the situation, a high-speed stepping that does not miss even the slightest opening from the enemy, attack evasion by means of footwork and etc, this also allows him to walk as a Santa Claus that delivers presents on foot with certainty, no matter in what sort of dangerous location the recipient might be (such as fields of lava or heavy snow).

    Fist of Flash: A
    This Karna does not possess a spear, grasping only a fist.
    However, that does not mean a decline in fighting power.
    Having been trained by Drona - a master proficient in all sorts of martial arts - Karna is also familiar with bare-handed combat.
    If anything, the accumulated past recollections of having diligently studied martial arts together with Arjuna, Ashvatthaman and the others gave birth to a fresh sensation, causing his body to become lighter than when it was being dragged by the weight of his spear.

    The fastest speed of the punches that he can unleash surpasses the speed of light, so those who face against him will only be able to catch a glimpse of the traces of a fist that is much like a flash... perhaps.
    This also resembles an unwavering sword flash; in other words, his fists are truly like a drawn blade.
    "That is why the present me became a Saber."
    There was a Santa who resonantly said such a thing at the cafeteria.
    And behind him, Ashvatthaman kept making a puzzled face from beginning to end while eating chicken.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Winning Arkaputra - Saint Consecutive Fist
    Rank:
    A
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 1~2
    Maximum Targets: 1 person
    A finish combination that Santa Karna unleashes for the sake of victory.
    After performing an agile weaving so to not let the opponent focus on him, he steps in one go and blow away the enemy with a barrage of hooks from left and right, then two consecutive left jabs, followed by right straight and a upper punch in the end.
    Of course, all these punches have both the Santa Power and his strength as a son of Surya fully charged into them, with nothing held back. In special, in that upper launched at the very end, the surplus energy is expressed in a sublime manner by becoming wings of light, or a halo. The destructive power of this combination is on super galactic levels, and those who receive it fall flat on the mat with an impact akin of being struck by a meteorite.

    Arkaputra is one of Karna's aliases, meaning "child of the sun".

    Graharaja Santa Cross - Saint Crossing Fist
    Rank: A
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 1~2
    Maximum Targets: 1 person
    A one-hit one-kill cross-counter punch, which this Karna devised as his finishing blow.
    This was created because, in addition to awakening to a boxing style as soon as he became a Santa Claus, Karna learned about the existence of a sure-kill punch in boxing called cross-counter and for some reason reached the conclusion that "the knockout blow of a Santa is the cross-counter, and surely that is the reason why his name is Santa Claus".
    It is impossible to perceive this technique by sight.
    The fist released in perfect match to the enemy attack will strike at the chin of said enemy like a beam, drawing a single trace of light akin to the glimmer of the sun.
    That appearance resembles even a slash from the holy sword of the planet; in other words, this is a sure-kill fist and a sure-kill sword(1).

    "Graharaja" means "king of constellations" and is one of the aliases of the Sun God Surya.



    (1) this is a pun. The Japanese terms for "sure-kill fist" (必殺拳) and "sure-kill sword" (必殺剣) can both be read as "hissatsu ken"


    Senji Muramasa (Shirou)
    Senji Muramasa

    A swordsmith from Kuwana, Ise Province.
    His pseudonym during the Bunki period was Uemon no Jou.
    Regarded as the founder of the swordsmith clan that produced blades of most excellent sharpness during the Sengoku period (although there are documents from the Edo period indicating the existence of three earlier generations of Muramasas - from the supposed founder of the Jouji period until the one from Ouei - the oldest sword that can be confirmed as a work of the Muramasa clan belongs to the early Bunki period. As such, this work regards the Muramasa of the Bunki years as the founder).

    He appears in the “Seven Contests of Master Swordsmen Heroic Spirits” as a Heroic Spirit dispatched by the Counter Force, while in the blanked Earth he is a Heroic Spirit summoned by the "God from Another Planet".
    Really, what is his truth, inner feelings....?

    "Huh? There is nothing strange or mysterious about it!
    So long I can perform my job in an acceptable manner, I'm fine either way!
    "

    -Personality
    An old man who devoted his life to the manufacture of swords.
    His appearance in this manifestation is very much that of a virile young man, but his mentality is instead closer to someone in his final years.
    His personality is vigorous, showing no hesitations nor concerns about the future.
    His speech is mostly curt, and one cannot call him friendly by any standards.
    At a first glance, it is easy to think of him as a coldhearted person, but once you get to know him you discover that he very good at looking after others.
    A man with a chivalrous spirit.

    While indeed the personality of Muramasa himself, this is also the personality of the body that became his vessel.... Or maybe, the young man who became the vessel might have attained this personality if he were to lead a fulfilling life until his old age.

    A (workaholic) person who takes pride in "completing" the job he was commissioned with to a point that he finds acceptable - regardless of the contents of said commission or who the client is.
    Although he can choose to take cruel・cold-blooded measures for the sake of his job at times, it seems that he simply cannot bring himself to perform heretic deeds.

    Back in the Sengoku Era (a time when a vast number of blades were forged), many great swordsmiths had set up shop all over Japan.
    On occasion, they would even join the battlefield and repair the blades that were damaged during combat.
    Among them, the swordsmith of Kuwana in the Ise Province - Senji Muramasa - was well known as a skilled artisan, and his blades were especially sought by the warriors of Mikawa.

    There are legends about the blades of the Muramasa clan.
    Supposedly, they were bewitched swords that brought calamity to the family of the Tokugawa shoguns.
    The blade employed in the assassination of Ieyasu's grandfather, Matsudaira Kiyoyasu.
    The blade that cut down his father, Hirotada.
    The blade that assisted in the suicide of his eldest son, Matsudaira Nobuyasu.
    And the blade that injured Ieyasu himself...
    Supposedly, all of those blades bore the name "Muramasa".

    A famous sword, and also a Tokugawa-slaying bewitched sword. The fearsome Muramasa.
    In many narrativeskabuki plays, the name "Muramasa" is used for bloody bewitched swords.
    It also appears in legends regarding antagonists of the Tokugawa.
    In 1651, Yu Shousetsu was supposedly in possession of a Muramasa when he plotted to overthrow the shogunate. In the "Meishou Genkouroku", Sanada Yukimura was also described as the owner of a Muramasa.

    During the Bakumatsu, many patriots intent on overthrowing the shogunate sought for Muramasa blades, including Saigou Takamori. When the Boshin War broke out, the commander-in-chief of he Eastern front, Prince Arisugawa Taruhito, was supposedly carrying a "Muramasa".

    Territory Creation: A
    Senji Muramasa operates while based in his own workshop--- his smithy.
    Of course, this is something completely different from those employed by the magi, but it appears that he has been granted the Class Skill of a Caster due an interpretation made when he manifested as a Servant.
    As a chief of craftsmen, he possesses an extraordinary Territory Creation ability.

    Appreciation for Swords: A
    A skill falsely similar to Appreciation for Fine Arts.
    An understanding towards armaments. Just by taking a single glance at ordinary weapons that are not Noble Phantasms, he is able to grasp how it should be used in a fight. At A Rank and above, he is also able to understand weapons other than swords.
    It works as an accurate advice towards allies, and he is also able to see through the weak points of enemies.

    Inauspicious at Present: B
    A skill derived from the legends surrounding the blades endowed with the name of Muramasa, the so called "Bewitched Sword Muramasa" legends.
    Supposedly, the swords produced by Senji Muramasa and his clan brought calamity to the ruling Tokugawa House.
    In FGO, it works as a "special efficacy towards statesmen・kings".

    Test Cutting: B+
    Also called tameshi-giri, tameshi kenjutsu.

    Senji Muramasa can freely draw out the destructive power that the weapon in his hands is furnished with. If he feels like it, it is even possible to draw out the maximum force that would cause said weapon to break itself in a single swing.

    Eyes of Karma: A
    A latent ability of his body. A variation of the skill Clairvoyance.
    It improves both motionless and dynamic vision.
    Powers of observation that are specialized for only combat maneuvers.
    With this body, it is impossible to perceive fate like a proper Clairvoyance... or so it should have been. But, thanks to Muramasa's own sense of values (who spent his entire lifetime staring at the "karma" found amidst the flames), these eyes of the falcon reached a point where they can pierce not only the prey, but also the causality that lies ahead.

    Its slash severs time space and causality altogether.
    The blade's name is "Tsumukari Muramasa".
    Tsumukari comes from the "Tsumukari no Tachi (also called "Tsumuha no Tachi")".
    In other words, it denotes the Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi/Kusanagi no Tsurugi - the divine treasure that appeared from the tail of the greatest calamity dragon of Japan, Yamata no Orochi. A red-eyed apparition possessing eight heads and eight tails that boasted an enormous size, spanning across eight peaks and valleys, it was ultimately killed by Susanoo no Mikoto.

    Utsumi Erice
    Utsumi Erice

    A Japan from a near future, after the conclusion of a Holy Grail War.
    In its mosaic city "Akihabara", this 14 years-old girl served as a night watchwoman (night watch).
    Due to her relentless work style when hunting Servants, she ended up being shunned while fearfully called "Grim Reaper".

    In a future history different from the one Chaldea is proceeding to, she threw herself into a Holy Grail War along with Voyager - the last Servant to be summoned in that world. Not even she herself knows its conclusion.

    She has been possessed by evil spirits referred as "haunts"(1) since her early childhood.
    That spiritual wound manifests itself as a pseudo-material that oozes out from her body surface like a black mucus.
    Although said spiritual wound gets aggravated from time to time, she got used to dealing with it and even became able to employ it at will - to the point of calling herself a "demon lord (Erlkonig)".
    In exchange for also being effective as a supernatural sense that perceives signs of death and bloodlust, the haunts constantly demand sacrifices, eating into Erice's own body if not satisfied.

    A person who prioritizes efficiency. She prefers simple and sturdy things, tools and garments that are both practical and functional.
    As for food, she likes spicy meals and those full of nutritional value.
    She couldn't care less about flavor.
    Bearing certain prejudice against magi, she regards herself as a "spellcaster", but well...

    She is very knowledgeable about Heroic Spirits from all times and places.
    Spends her spare time mostly scanning over books and video documents related to Heroic Spirits. Despite capitilizing on said knowledge to ruthlessly deal with them as a "Grim Reaper", she respects the career those Servants built in their previous lifetime, displaying a deep reverence for them. Above all, she admires voyagers and adventurers who discovered unknown worlds.
    "Not really... they were quite common in the mosaic city..."
    Although pretending to be calm in such a manner, it actually seems that she is secretly quite excited about the everyday life in Chaldea, to the point of blood rushing to her head and producing nosebleeds.

    "Hoorayyy, it is finally my turn!
    Caster Artoria.
    I shall do my best within the scope of my powers!
    "

    An splendidly pure and energetic girl.
    A sore loser who is strong in face of adversity, due to cherishing the surrounding mood above all else, she hides her true feelings without telling anyone - just like any ordinary young girl.
    Spending her time doing nothing but studying magecraft, she is a practical researcher who runs around the fields just like a young boy.

    When her Saint Graph reaches its third stage, she becomes able to employ a great number of treasured swords and magic catalysts.
    Such as the Carnwennan of Shadow Step, Spumador of the Lightning, and the mythological formal wear Marmyadose.
    The giant staff that Artoria wields in the third stage of her Saint Graph is the great sword that was supposedly forged by a god of fire and then bestowed to a great hero. Said to surpass Excalibur in terms of might alone, allegedly there was even a time when King Arthur lent Excalibur to Gawain and used this great sword instead.

    An Artoria who was summoned to Chaldea slightly before everybody else.
    Rather than "a hero and a magus", her relationship with the Master is that of "reliable friends" instead.

    Opening her eyes wide upon seeing the King of Knights Artoria, getting depressed upon seeing the tyrant Artoria and smiling cheerfully and thinking "I'm so jealous!" from the bottom of her heart upon being the swimsuit Artoria. She is such Artoria.

    Sesshouin Kiara (Swimsuit)
    Sesshouin Kiara (Swimsuit)

    A mysterious beauty who claims to be the Pseudo-Servant of Yaobikuni, the legendary Buddhist nun who became immortal by eating a "mermaid's flesh"---
    Other than this, nothing else is known about her.

    "Ha ha ha. Swimsuit Saint Graphs look quite fun, right?"

    Sesshouin Kiara does not change even after turning into Yaobikuni.
    "I am the only human in this world.
    There is no difference in the good and the evil of insects. No matter what they might be, I shall simply pity, comfort and love them---
    "
    That being said, this "love" is nothing but something to please Kiara herself. Even if that great love was a salvation for the concerned person, in the eyes of a third party, it would look no more than a hell where you are being toyed around with.
    A bewitching existence that employs the talents of a "messiah" only for the sake of her own pleasure... that is who Sesshouin Kiara is.

    ...still.
    Maybe something happened this time, for she is just a little bit more concerned with the attention from the surroundings than usual.
    It might be that the way of being as Yaobikuni has bestowed her with some amount of "self-restraint", even if just a little.

    ・First Ascension
    As her first swimsuit, first summer event, Kiara has upped in both purity and gracefulness when compared to her usual self.
    There is also a certain levity in her feelings, as she is secretly in high spirits for going in a summer vacation, something she wasn't able to in her youth.
    ...consequentially, this causes a fearsome bug(1) in which she looks as nothing but "an elegant (and sometimes girlishly cute) young lady that he met on a summer resort" in the eyes of the Master.

    ・Second Ascension
    A (self-styled) magical girl that Lily transformed into by using her compact.
    She becomes slightly more sadistic and cruel than the usual Kiara. A dreadful police queen(2) that mercilessly tortures the weak points of slovenly pigs, masochists pigs that reap what they sow (regardless of being men or woman), causing them to become even more hopeless.
    Why things turned out like this? The darkness that Lily carries is truly deep.

    ・Third Ascension
    The same old Kiara... or so it seems; but due the effects of her long-awaited Little Mermaid cosplay and a strong "Lawful" attribute in this instance, her wickedness was temperated and her cleanliness became more apparent.
    How exactly would that writer of fairy-tales criticize her over the fact that her character as a "bodhisattva full of compassion" comes out more when she is fused with a monster?

    Sesshouin Kiara obtained a Swimsuit Saint Graph out of casually thinking "Swimsuit Saint Graphs look quite fun, right?"
    Sensing the abnormality that occurred at the lake, she performed an independent manifestation almost as if going on a excursion, ended up being assaulted by Xu Fu's immortal-slaying mask and disappeared... or so it seemed, but Xu Fu's attack wasn't able to annihilate her due to it being of the instant kill-type (thanks to Independent Manifestation, she has resistance against instant kills), so she was reborn in the Mariana Trench where she was once defeated.
    There she found a clam fossil and fused with it by gobbling it up.
    On her way back to the surface, she ran across a swarm of mermaids in the depths of the sea and decided to also take in the attributes of a mermaid while she was at it. A High Servant who was reborn in the shape of a young girl by virtue of the good-for-nothing notion of "since I will be reborn anyway, let's try to start over from infancy!"

    Kiara became a Lily mostly because it seemed fun, but that was also a means to deceive Xu Fu.
    Her girlish (Lily) state was setup under the basis of having lost her memories, not even knowing her own name.
    Due to that, Lily believed herself to be a Pseudo-Servant of Yaobikuni.

    Having returned to the lake in order to even the scores with Xu Fu, Kiara concealed her identity and ended up remaking the rules of the death game into an enjoyable environment for herself.
    When the fake Master (Xu Fu) from the lakeside Mt. B said "let's solve this situation", that meant "not exposing the truth of the lakeside, but rather exposing the identity of the individual who usurped Mt. B".

    When she was Lily, she truly attempted to become of assistance to the Master, even using the magic compact (seashell) when he was in a predicament to transform into Kiara Police (the Second Ascension of her Saint Graph) and defeat evil.
    However, turning into Kiara Police caused her to assess the entire situation, so she changed back to Lily due thinking that "it wouldn't be fun if the trick's secret was disclosed this early".

    In other words, they have no soul.
    Since eating souless fish does not constitute as killing, it does not harm the girl's vows at all.
    ...even if, the number of mermaids she has eaten is equivalent to an entire swarm.

    This is a digression, in work of a certain writer of fairytales, mermaids still don't have a soul even though they endowed with intelect.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Rank: A
    Type: Anti-World
    Range: 1~333
    Maximum Targets: 1000 people
    When she turned into a bewitching bodhisattva, Sesshouin Kiara placed mankind on top of her palm and toyed with them. This Noble Phantasm is a variation of that.
    Although her Saint Graph does not reach the level of a bodhisattva, she can produce a spirit world over a wide range due to having devoured the largest class of divine beast that creates illusions - the clam.
    In simple terms, the great devil's sea Sesshouin.
    The "illusionary capital" displayed by the clam absorbs the targets and deprave them by getting rid of the boundaries between reality and illusion...
    In other words, the moment they feel like "even if it is an illusion, it is fine so long I am fulfilled", they will be converted(4) (put on the same existential rank as the illusions) and cease to be living beings from reality.
    Afterwards, Kiara will smile kindly - as if to say that it can't be helped that such trash-like illusions exist - and blow the people of the illusionary capital away with a sigh, causing them to vanish.

    Also, nirmanarati is a term that refers to a "world" instead of a "god". The bodhisattva that devoured a clam became a paradise of the desire realm, just as that name indicates.



    In ancient China and Japan, the clam is regarded as a divine beast that is the source for the illusions that occur in the surface (shinkirou). A giant clam (Orient clam) that lives in the bottom of the ocean, its sigh (bubbles) was said to reach the surface and become the shinkirou.
    The 'rou'(5) of shinkirou refers to a multistoried building; a picture book from the Sesshouin library painted it as "a castle much like a red light district that appears in the surface, leading people astray in its illusionary capital・illusionary pleasure - sowaka sowaka"

    Illyasviel (swimsuit)
    Illyasviel (swimsuit)

    "Even a magical girl wants to play around!"

    Throwing off her own identity, this magical girl bided her time to turn into a mere elementary school student at this summer.
    Her tension is higher than usual, and both her IQ and luck continue to decline.
    In short, this is Illya in her comedy mode.
    Despite mostly ending up experiencing something unpleasant, she will probably scatter smiles and tears without being discouraged this time around as well.

    Ruby has currently switched to its "splash mode", in the form of a hose and nozzle.
    But even if its appearance changed, the troublesomeness to wilfully fly about and disturb the surroundings is still the same as ever.

    Also, they left the Cards in their private room.

    On that day, Illya suddenly realized:

    "So long I remain in Chaldea, wouldn't this be like an eternal summer vacation...?"

    Illya is the type to properly make plans and finish her homework within the first half of the summer vacation, but that always caused her to have nothing else to do during the latter half.
    And now, she is in a situation where said latter half has been extended to infinitely stupid levels.

    "It should be fine for me to start playing now, right...?
    What about my swimsuit...?
    "

    A desire of unknown cause to behave as it pleases her increases day by day.
    Come to think of it, every year a portion of Servants become somewhat feebleminded whenever summer comes around.

    Miyu's opinion was "maybe it is some kind of endemic disease".
    That is a pretty scary thought.
    According to Kuro "the symptoms are more severe on those who are usually diligent people".
    Stop trying to intimidate others.
    And then Ruby said "as a precaution, I am giving you a vaccine shot".
    Wow, in that case everything will be fine.

    "-wait, Ruby?! What is that injection...hot!
    My body...!
    My Saint Graph... will turn into summer...!
    "

    And thus, the young girl was transformed into a Swimsuit Saint Graph.

    Circumstances aside, Illya had her mind and body dyed in the summer colors and began regarding "wholeheartedly playing to exhaustion during the summer vacation" as a supreme notion.
    No matter where you take her, she will gladly play around.

    Incidentally, other than her reasoning, it seems that the restraint of her appetite also got loose and she will randomly start talking about food.
    She can basically eat anything. Food is delicious.
    She is not fat. This is a healthy growth.
    "...I said that I'm not fat!"

    Illya performed the indispensable role for any horror movie - a screaming personnel.
    Let her rest her throat and heart for a while.
    After taking a nap, she will probably be energetically flying about once again.
    An elementary schooler is invincible during summer after all.

    Making many memories during this summer.
    Putting it bluntly, Illya's wish at this instance can be summed to just that.
    In that case, it was fulfilled more than enough.
    The days that she spent together with everyone on that lake probably will remain forever in her heart as vivid summer memory.

    "Though I want to forget about that vivid color of blood as soon as possible..."

    Probably will remain forever in her heart.

    High Pressure!: A
    A skill that increases the hydraulic pressure within the hose, raising the force of water discharge.
    Incidentally, although we're calling it "water", it is actually magical energy that Ruby processed into something that is somewhat more summer-like. Also, it seems that what comes out of the nozzle changes from time to time.

    Summer Vacation (Child): A+
    An elementary schooler is invincible during summer.
    They can do anything (or so they think) and they have infinite time (or so they think).

    Legal Shower: B++
    Replenishing the herb extract (deadly poison) that was carefully produced by Ruby.
    Skin contact is a matter of course, but its effects can also be displayed just by inhaling its volatilized components.

    "However, thanks to a high-level selective toxicity, not only it is harmless to Illya but there is also the bonus of increasing her concentration powers a little!"

    Its components are something that would cause aversion even on a hydra, but it seems to be completely harmless, so her parents can rest at peace.

    The summer vacation of 5th year elementary school, which only comes by once in a lifetime.
    ...this is the summer enlightening achieved by Illya thanks to having said vacation extended for many years.

    Everything in this world has an ending.
    From the moment something begins, the countdown towards its ending has also started.
    The treasures obtained, the emotions felt at those moments, the precious memories - all that will surely end up disappearing one day.
    But even if you try to stop the hands of the clock out of fear of loss, the treasures you hold in your hands will only grow dull.
    That is why we cannot stop on our tracks.
    We move on towards the future, all while still losing, putting an end to something.
    The old treasures that we leave behind will surely turn into constellations, and the trails of our progress turn into a rainbow that color the sky...

    ...or something along those lines. She ended up obtaining something akin to an important life lesson like that. I would prefer that she came to understand this on a more serious story.
    In any case, Illya turns things such as summer memories, her bonds with everyone, and etc. into power to convert herself into "Prisma☆Illya Splash Rainbow!"
    The resolve to put an end to the summer vacation summons the Illyas from different timelines, who then become a light bullet endowed with seven times the normal temporal density and break apart stagnant things.

    Let's work hard starting the new school term.


    Brynhildr (Swimsuit)
    Brynhildr (Swimsuit)

    During the visit to that midsummer lake shore...
    She forcibly modified her Saint Graph by means of her own Original Runes!
    She and the great hero Sigurd behave like a couple madly in love - intimately, innocently and gentle to the point that makes the instability of her usual Saint Graph seem unbelievable - but...

    A scream that resounds in the night.
    Sigurd is down on a pool of blood.
    And Brynhildr is basked in blood herself.
    What could possibly have happened...?!

    Sigurd stubbornly does not speak about the identity of the criminal (he stands up no matter how many times it takes).
    Brynhildr is nothing but flustered.
    And in her hand is a bloodstained, new Noble Phantasm.
    What could possibly have happened...?!

    She is mostly the same as the normal (Lancer) Brynhildr.
    Quiet and devoted.
    However, unlike usual, her affections towards her beloved Sigurd have been completely unleashed.
    Rejoicing love without any scruples, she intends to enjoy this vacation on a midsummer lake shore.
    Surprisingly, she does not say dangerous lines such as "I will kill you" or "I am going to kill you now, okay?"
    It almost looks like this Saint Graph has completely sealed away her automatic murderous impulses towards her "beloved one (Sigurd)".
    However...

    The truth is the following.
    Thanks to a forceful adjustment of her Saint Graph by means of overlapping Original Runes, she is able to harmoniously spend time with her beloved Sigurd during the day. But once nighttime comes, a murderous intent that is much greater than the one from her normal Saint Graph swells out of Brynhildr... causing her to kill him.
    Sigurd has been brazenly receiving this every night.

    Sigurd originally suggested this Saint Graph based on Brynhildr's wishes (that of "even if just a few days, I want to spend some time with you without being tempted by my murderous intents"), but her murderous intent (love) ended up becoming inflated by the repeated contacts with Sigurd as a result and she had the bitter experience of going into a rampage for a while.
    Although her rampage was suppressed by the combined efforts of Sigurd and the Master...
    In any event, this loving pair cannot remain together forever.
    This is but a transient Saint Graph, which lasts only a single summer.

    "You're adorable in this Saint Graph too. But, as expected, it is your usual self that I love the most."

    Supposedly, Sigurd said such a thing at the end of that summer.

    Receiving such words from her beloved, Brynhildr smiled.
    And while smiling, she cried ever so slightly.

    Swan Formal Wear (Summer): A+

    Even if she cannot change her established foundation as a Heroic Spirit, until the tragic moment that is yet to come (that is, "until nighttime"), Summer Brynhildr can behave innocently like a young girl that knows nothing, enjoying her rendezvous with Sigurd.
    This is also a unique skill that applied the Original Runes.

    Yu Meiren (Swimsuit)
    Yu Meiren (Swimsuit)

    "A summer resort! A vacation with Lord Xiang Yu!"
    You Meiren had thus transformed her Saint Graph into a swimsuit by means of pure enthusiasm, but Xiang Yu had to remain in Chaldea due to unavoidable circumstances.
    -First Chapter, Closure-

    That being said. Although Yu Meiren's ambitions fell apart, the investigation of the singularity had not been completed.
    Holding onto the single spear that was leant by the mechanical general, Xiang Yu (which was meant to serve as precaution against the "evils of summer" that he had calculated), that extraordinary beauty gorgeously, glamorously departed to the frontlines of the summer singularity.
    -Second Chapter, Closure-

    Yu Meiren came to know that the "evils(1) of summer" mentioned by Xiang Yu was a term that included nuances such as "summer temptations", "a summer fever towards flirting".
    "You mean... that he was worried other men would flirt with me?!"
    This conversely caused her to feel his love and become excited.
    After that, all that was left was a Yu Meiren who was a little more inflamed by Xiang Yu's love, and a little more merciless towards flirtatious men.
    -Yu Meiren's Summer, Fin-

    *Personality
    She is mostly the same as the normal Yu Meiren, but somewhat more enthusiastic due being lent Xiang Yu's spear.
    Also, since she is feeling her connection to Xiang Yu a little more strongly than usual, while her overall misanthropy remains mostly the same, her lack of tolerance towards flirtatious men that try to coax her in special is all the more greater. Playboys ought to perish.
    This will be invoked against those who (she arbitrarily feels that) leer at her, even if they don't actually try to flirt.
    In other words, there is a chance that a spear will come flying your way just by looking at her swimsuit-clad silhouette. Her argument is that: "it can't be helped, as I have to preserve my chastity to Lord Xiang Yu".

    'Both me and her held on to a single wish for a long time.'

    'I had halfway resigned myself that it was impossible, yet wandered for eternity due being unable to fully give up on it.
    She vowed to fulfill it almost as if cursing herself, and thus assembled eternity as her own blood.'

    'To set foot into the realm of eternity just for the sake of such wish; I couldn't help but think of if as both foolish and futile.
    Still... regardless of whether it was foolish or wise, I understood that she probably would be unable to stop once she got started.
    Because that pure, honestly simple way of being was just like trees that survive by entrusting just a single wish to their seeds.
    Regardless of meaning, regardless of good and evil, those are things that end up lasting.'

    'So I do not hate her. Nor do I have contempt for her.
    I can only sigh in exasperation.'

    'In short.
    I cannot fulfil her wishes, but...
    Her existence itself.'

    "...well, I don't particularly hate her.
    Though I think that she could change the manner how she addresses me.

    She would do anything for the sake of the order that exist between herself and Xiang Yu.

    Incarnated Spirit of Summer: A+
    Of course, the fact she is an incarnated spirit does not change.
    Still, by changing her Saint Graph into a swimsuit, her way of being was somewhat optimized towards the summer.
    The efficiency of mana absorption increases in proportion to the presence of summer-like nature... that is, the water of a summer resort's lake shore and a brilliant sunlight.
    This becomes a style improper for the image of a bloodsucking species, but of course that she pays no mind to that.
    It is not like her preferences have changed, so you'll end up seeing her sunbathing while murmuring complaints such as "it's so hot!"

    Dance of Bygone Days: EX
    A skill for the sword dance she once performed before Xiang Yu.
    Despite holding the conviction that human civilization is detestable, worthless of even imitating, she might bend it sometimes for the sake of Xiang Yu.
    She does not care if it can be objectively described as skillful or not. Nor does she care how others would evaluate it. Those are inconsequential.
    It is just that it was necessary for her to dance sometimes.
    What sort of evaluation he made, what sort of expression appeared in his face - those are things that only she knows.
    Those have all been deeply engraved in her Saint Graph in the form of precious memories, together with this skill.

    Originally, this skill would be either sealed away or outright inexistent unless Xiang Yu is close by - thus impossible to be employed.
    At this instance, the seal on this skill has been lifted due to the shock of having been lent his spear. Consequentially, said spear functions as a proxy of sorts and makes the employment of this skill possible.
    Currently, it has been arranged into a spear dance.

    The word "fling" is a slang for "extramarital affair" or "a summer's love", which in turn points to the evils of summer.
    An anti-evils of summer compulsory removal technique by means of the spear lent by Xian Yu, which is the embodiment of his love (or so she thinks). It is endowed with a special efficacy towards men due to an extreme, arbitrary decision from her part.

    Although Yu Meiren has no knowledge of martial arts or tactics, as a result of getting excited over Xiang Yu's love, she remembered about the sword dance once performed for him.
    This is the result of setting her mind in making use of that and then arranging it into a spear dance.
    As a consequence, it turned out into something akin to pole dance for some reason.

    Just like her original Noble Phantasm, Eternal Lament, this is something that causes abnormal weather by letting magical energy go on a rampage as she destroys her own body. However, the motions of the spear dance that uses Xiang Yu's spear as an axis added the vector of "rotation" to it, consequently leading to the occurrence of tornado-type curse instead of a rain of blood.
    The eternal lamentation (lament) changed its shape into a round dance (rondo) of death.

    Abigail Williams (Swimsuit)

    Dreams are surely reality.
    After all, they hatch out from the cradle of consciousness
    (1) and are the cage of universal truth that embraces and nurtures consciousness.
    I am an adeptus of the dream-like boundary, a servant of the Lord Father...


    End of the 17th century. In the English-controlled Massachusetts.
    Abigail Williams, who was only a 12 years-old Puritan girl at the time, became a central personage of the melancholic incident in which many villagers were prosecuted and executed by hanging - the "Salem Witch Trials".

    Due to many overlapping factors, the Abigail that was summoned as a Servant established a connection with the wicked god of outer space - the "All-in-One and One-in-All" - whose existence still cannot be verified in this universe.
    This young girl wields the mighty power of a descender (Foreigner) as a "gate of dreams" - the faithful vessel of an Outer God.

    The modest wish that such girl harboured in her chest was to quietly, gracefully spend the summer holidays together with her Master...

    "...isn't that right? This is a vacation after all.
    Surely, it can't be helped if the feelings that were kept concealed everyday end up overflowing...
    "

    Despite being fundamentally endowed with the same Saint Graph・personality, her nature and tastes differs elaborately in accordance to the stage of her Ascension.

    [First Ascension]
    If likened to a trio of sisters, this would be the eldest. Contrary to her scary appearance, she interacts with the Master in a tolerant manner.
    An unexpectedly reasonable person(??) that sometimes mutters things in a mature, understanding resignation.
    [Second Ascension]
    If likened to a trio of sisters, this would be middle one.
    The version whose diligent nature is the closest to the Puritan girl, Abigail.
    Studious and rimming with curiosity. A methodical person with a firm character.
    [Third Ascension]
    If likened to a trio of sisters, this would the youngest. Naive and somewhat childish.
    Due to this purity, she stands side by side with insanity.
    A new aspect that Abigail had never displayed until now.
    A boon from the charms of summer.

    The name of the black cat that follows her around is "Nosh"(2), while the white cat is called Luthar.
    Whenever Abigail is out of sight, they are always friendly trying to kill each other.

    That which comes crawling from outer space...
    The descender "Foreigner" is a foreign object and a heresy in the Holy Grail War.

    Supposedly, the privileged have a duty to wield their power in service of the world.
    But this young girl does not think that is the case.
    For it is those who declare themselves to be righteous that catch a glimpse of insanity.

    Supposedly, it is the responsibility of the erudite to pursue the path of divine revelation.
    But this girl does not believe in that.
    Rather than the wisdom lying dormant in a graveyard, she finds value in the passion of those who visit in order to request an apprenticeship.

    Supposedly, a king must remain aloof even as he lives in the hearts of the masses.
    But this girl does not wish for that.
    She simply hopes to be a resort for the heart that rejects a peaceful rest.

    The underprivileged. The uneducated. The untouchables.
    Stopping at the edge of the world (divided almost like a wave lapping onto the shore), she wishes to guide those who driftingly arrive at that place.

    Foreigner is a foreign object and a heresy.
    Humans spin the future while interweaving even with such a menace.

    "It seems that, every time summer comes by, a portion of Chaldea's Heroic Spirits end up forgetting about moderation...
    Why would that be?
    "

    Just as she was wondering about such things, Tomoe Gozen would finally have a firsthand experience with its cause in this summer. Namely...
    Passion that overflows from inside oneself. A power that is almost like like a fire, a sun. In short, a "sense of liberation"!
    Although the talks about the sea never really hit her during the past years, it seems that something flipped inside of her this time around - possibly because the stage in this summer is among the mountains.
    She awakened to the Swimsuit Saint Graph.

    That being said.
    Leisure is not the only form of pleasure in summer.
    Yes.
    There is also games!

    ...come, summer has began.
    In that case, let us now play until we drop, without sparing time for sleep!

    Her outfit is an easy-going summer swimsuit!

    By no means she has completely abandoned moderation, but being on a mountain causes a "sense of liberation" to gush out and stimulate her, constantly pushing her back. And so, Tomoe Gozen plunges into entertainment in this summer.

    Her personality is mostly the same as the usual (Archer) Tomoe Gozen.
    However, as she is in her off-mode, her intent to play around is on full throttle.
    While she will naturally get concerned if some abnormality occurs, her intent to play will not disappear.

    In the beginning, she was endowed with D Rank in this skill, but there was a change in the skill's name and a remarkable improvement in its rank after she received Yagyuu Tajima-no-kami's personal instruction.
    Tomoe's testimony was that "The many techniques bestowed by Lord Tajima-no-kami can suddenly be applied in real dual-wielding, not only VR".
    "Isn't that just the normal Yagyuu Shinkage-ryuu?" retorted Chiyome dubiously.
    Still, it seems that the sword techniques that she wields are something very different from those of the Yagyuu Shinkage-ryuu.

    VR Shinkage-ryuu Secret Technique・Dual-Wielding Laser Blade
    Rank:
    C
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 1
    Maximum Targets: 1 person
    A constantly active-type of Noble Phantasm.
    Originally, a VR laser blade is something limited to just VR and does not function as a sword in reality, but Saber Tomoe can mold her own magical energy in the form of a laser blade. It is employed in attacks.
    Naturally, the blade emits a super-high heat.

    Even now, Tomoe does not hesitate to say that this paranormal ability is "derived from the powers of Lord Yoshinaka, who was dubbed the Asahi Shogun(2)". But, as expected, this probably comes from her own abilities - pronouncily revealing her oni blood.
    The influence of this Noble Phantasm is the reason why the actual swords (long swords) that she uses in her Second and Third Ascension also emit a super-high heat.

    VR Shinkage-ryuu Secret Technique・Sun Sword of Tomoegafuchi
    Rank: B

    Maximum Targets: 40 people
    An anti-army attack that employs the aforementioned Noble Phantasm.
    Tomoe herself affirms that "I awakened to the deeper mysteries of the VR Shinkage-ryuu", but its veracity is uncertain.
    To be specific, she just equips the VR googles and charges at the enemy camp.
    After having swinged the two swords to her heart's content, a pseudo-sun that symbolizes her feelings towards Kiso Yoshinaka appears in the sky based on the "circle" produced by the tracks of the scorching blades - performing the finishing blow against the enemy camp with a irradiation of magical energy.
    If she feels like it, it is possible to launch not just one, but two, three, four, five... a true multitude of pseudo-suns. Still, in this work she fundamentally produces just one.

    Murasaki Shikibu (Swimsuit)
    Murasaki Shikibu (Swimsuit)

    A widow clad in an enigmatic, dark colored swimsuit.
    The words that spill from her lips are enigmatic and chilly, giving off the premonition of a creeping bizarre.
    Will there be any survivors in this summer journey...?

    ...that is purely the impression her outfit gives.
    It is not like Rider Murasaki Shikibu is the criminal or mastermind behind some incident.
    "A widow in a glamorous black swimsuit".
    "A young girl in a suspicious sailor uniform".
    "A woman clad in a Showa Era, idol-style swimsuit".
    The many appearances chosen by Murasaki Shikibu in this summer are merely disguises based around such themes.
    Simply put, she is enjoying dressing herself like that.

    In other words, this is cosplay!

    As a result of repeatedly reading all sorts of stories related to summer, Murasaki Shikibu became somewhat knowledgable about mystery and horror novels, and even horror movies.
    Once summer is over, she should softly turn back into the usual librarian-like Murasaki Shikibu, but...

    Surprisingly, she may end up acquiring a penchant for those attires and wearing them indefinitely.
    Of course, it is not like she will turn them into her everyday clothes, but rather enjoy herself by secretly changing into them on the depths of the underground library, or maybe in the private area behind the reception desk.
    Should you witness that by accident, try saying "it's okay to wear them normally, without reservations". She will surely be delighted.
    Should you instead say "it's okay to cosplay in public, without reservations", you'll probably see a Murasaki Shikibu that says "that's not it!" and denies cosplaying for some reason.

    Summer Night Black Widow: EX
    A skill that is deeply concerned with the appearance of her First Ascension.
    A widow that suspiciously smiles in the summer night, also known as the Black Widow!
    This appearance takes the enigmatic mistress of a mansion from mystery novels (particularly, that which is equated with the "criminal") as its motif, but it is not like she herself is the criminal behind some incident.
    She is merely enjoying this sort of cosplay.

    Incidentally, it seems that Murasaki Shikibu herself is very little aware of the fact she is cosplaying, so she will make a very flustered expression once that is pointed out.

    Literary Maiden (Summer): A
    The summer Murasaki Shikibu is particularly committed to summer stories.
    From Sci-Fi to historical dramas, she has read a great variety of tales related to summer.
    As a result of having repeatedly read many mystery and horror novels set on summer, the summer Murasaki Shikibu reacts very sensitively towards tricks and horror contents.

    As far as movies go, she understand them a little, but seems to be kind of biased towards horror movies from the 80s and 90s for some reason.
    (Apparently, she has a "mentor" in Chaldea that taught her about horror movies).

    A skill that is deeply concerned with the appearance of her Third Ascension.
    As a result of coming in contact with many old movies, summer Murasaki Shikibu became interested in Japan's Showa idols, especially their summer outfits.
    "I see, so this is the modern summer outfits..."

    Bizarre Preferences: (Summer): C++
    A skill that is deeply concerned with the appearance of her Second Ascension.
    As a result of becoming familiar with mystery and horror novels, summer Murasaki Shikibu acquired a particular preference for attires.
    "I see, so this is the modern summer outfits..."

    This is why she is holding to a crutch even though she had not twisted her legs, and is covered in bandages even though she is not injured.
    Anyone who mets her ends up asking "did you got hurt?", but Murasaki Shikibu carefully starts explaining "No, you see...", ultimately leading them to comprehend things.
    'I see, in other words... this is cosplay...?'

    A poem recited while pouring her feelings into it. By comprehending the poem once read by Sotoorihime - who is sometimes counted as one of the three deities of waka - she temporarily manifests a monster. A summoning Noble Phantasm of sorts.

    My dear comes tonight, for a spider has spread its net on the roots of bamboo grass(1)

    Originally, the spider mentioned in this poem should be unrelated to the tsuchigumo monster, but...
    Once the True Name is released, a single variant of tsuchigumo that was once sealed by her former teacher of onmyodou, Abe no Seimei, is summoned at that place to perform a charge attack. Murasaki Shikibu mounts on the tsuchigumo during the charge, and that is believed to be the cause of why her Saint Graph was established as a Rider.

    Supposedly, this is more effective towards targets that know of romantic love and passion.
    There is very little effect against existences who do not know of romantic love and passion.


    (1) from what my research told me, this is based on an old Chinese superstition that a spider near human belongings is a sign of an impending, unexpected visit.


    Himiko
    Himiko

    The queen of Yamatai, a country that once existed in ancient Japan.
    It has been told that she skilfully bewildered and managed the masses by means of a form of magecraft called kidou(1).
    A queen full of mysteries, who suddenly appeared in ancient Japan (which was then split in many small nations and continuously plagued by wars) and established a nation by means of a power of oracles.

    It has been told that Himiko took residence in the depths of a giant temple, never appeared in public and that her words were conveyed to the people by her nameless younger brother.
    She excelled in diplomacy, having dispatched an envoy to the Kingdom of Wei and obtaining the seal of Qinwei Wowang(2).
    After Himiko's death, Yamatai would suddenly disappear from the stage of history, being last confirmed in the records of Himiko's pupil, Iyo.
    Even now, there are many mysteries surrounding the country of Yamatai, and even its location cannot be determined.

    According to the testimony of the concerned person: "I wasn't able to freely go out anymore after becoming a queen. So frankly, I don't really know myself~"

    By looks alone, she appears to be just a carefree, energetic and moody girl. However, the power of mystery concealed within her body is amazing, befitting the arbiter of light that she professes herself to be.
    Sometimes through oracles, sometimes through brute forc... no, forget about it. Let's just say that she subdued conflicts through many means such as that.
    One might not be able to sense this when she is behaving as a queen, but she was originally a compassionate girl that prized living together with nature and felt delighted by sunlight, the fruits of the earth and people's smiles.
    Incidentally, for some reason she has an abnormal disposition as a ame-onna.
    Since it would start raining whenever she tried to go out, she was also valued as a rain-making priestess as a result.

    "...ugh, another heavy rain. Why do we only have downpours like this when I try to go out... What? It nurtures the crops? Yeah, yeah. Into the storage it goes."

    By the way, the fact that her signature move is heavy punch tempered through bone-smashing fortune-telling is regarded as the greatest secret of Yamatai.

    "Finishing move! Himiko Punch!"

    The celestial bodies represent the abyss, and the abyss is also an infinite mirror that is patterned after the celestial bodies.

    She heard "that" on a certain night.
    It seemed very far away, yet very close by. Shouting as if whispering. Cheerfully as if despairing about it. Almost as if she herself was a reflection, or as if the reflection went deep within herself. Before long, eternal wisdom connected the perpetual distance that she could see with this place.

    A primeval psychic, who was born as an infinite mirror that reflects wisdom beyond humans in the present world and holds more power that humans can handle within her body.

    She threw aside the ordinary life as a human and devoted her body for the sake of people's smiles. She has no regrets about that life and even accepted the darkness that would arrive at the end of it. Even if it meant eventually vanishing beyond time...

    "So you see, I don't particularly have any wish for the Holy Grail... No! I'm lying! I have one! A wish!" To be honest, as you well know, I was pressed by my duties as a queen in my previous life and, you see, how can I say this, I never had any luck with things like, well, fateful encounters? Err, things would completely smoothly when doing love fortune-telling for others, like 'yeah, yeah, I see it. Maybe not perfectly, but I can see it. I wish you well~', but I became completely hopeless whenever trying to do it for myself - in other words, a hopeless priestess. As such, I request an dramatic and exciting fateful encounter with my soul mate! Please!"

    ...yes, this is the arbiter of light, the First Queen of Yamatai, Himiko.

    Saito Hajime
    Saito Hajime

    Saito Hajime. The captain of the Third Company of the Shinsengumi, a police organization that operated mostly in the Kyoto of the Bakumatsu.
    Together with Okita Souji and Nagakura Shinpachi, he was regarded as one of the most prominent swordsmen even among the Shinsengumi, but there are many unknown matters about him - such as his origins and sword style.

    One of the few members of the Shinsengumi who fought to the bitter end, from the turbulent times of the Bakumatsu until the Meiji era, and lead a fulfilling life.
    His skill with the sword was head and shoulders above the rest even within the organization. The captain of the Second Company, Nagakura Shinpachi, once said this: Okita Souji had the sword of a warrior, and Saito Hajime an invincible sword.
    Supposedly he performed many missions that could not be made public (such as purging dissidents within the regiment), and there are even theories that he was a spy of the bakufu or the Aizu Domain sent to infiltrate the Shinsengumi.
    As a matter of fact, there were many questionable aspects about his behavior during his time in the Shinsengumi, and it is believed that he was placed in a special station of sorts among the regimental soldiers.

    At a glance, he appears as a frivolous man who is both handsome and fun, but sometimes one can se his aspect as a sharp and able person of keen discernment.
    Prone to falling into anachronistic sense of values, among the regimental soldiers of the Shinsengumi, he alone held the creed of living flexibly without being trapped by preexisting values.

    "Or something like that. Truth is, I just prefer to stick to what seems most interesting."

    Be as it may, since he basically just behaves in this manner, his coworker Okita ended up giving him the over-the-top nickname "flippant Shinsengumi".

    His favorite dish is noodles. He has a special taste for korokke soba.

    "How can I put this, the korokke soaked in soba tsuyu tastes somewhat cheap, yet delicious. I simply can't get enough of this."

    A member of the Shinsengumi since its early days, he was highly trusted by the Director Kondo and the Deputy Director Hijikata and was tasked with numerous important missions. Despite having struggled through many fierce battles, he eventually parted ways with the regiment and supported the new government, ultimately leading a fulfilling life.

    He would become a man of few words in his final years and left this world without telling others about much of his life, his time in the Shinsengume above all.

    Rather than a swordsman, most of his works were that of a spy. When you add to that an easygoing way of life that never revealed his true feelings to others, he would consequentially often be slandered as a man without convictions as a warrior - by both his enemies and even his fellow regimental soldiers.

    "Well, they are not exactly wrong. I would aimlessly wander that way, and then aimlessly wander in the opposite direction, always following whatever seemed most interesting at that moment. Death means defeat for humans, so you've not truly been defeated as long as you don't die. That is the secret behind the invincible sword. Not that I care."

    ...still, who would know. Until the very end, he lived through the new era while constantly hoisting a single flag within his heart.

    Liberal Sword Draw: B

Since the opponent is being cut down from a distance he thought it was impossible to be reached, he falls into a hallucination of already being cut by the time he realized.

    As a general rule, it is possible to ignore the target's reach and make the first move from any ma-ai, so long the opponent is employing a melee weapon (regardless of it being a spear or whatever).

    "...thus, my sword is invincible!"

    Oda Nobukatsu
    Oda Nobukatsu

    The younger brother of Oda Nobunaga, the famous Hegemon of the Warring States.
    Other than being Oda Nobunaga's brother, there are very little historical mentions about him in particular, so he has a very fragile, meagre Saint Graph.
    Originally, it should be impossible to summon him as a Heroic Spirit, but he was able manifest after obtaining a Saint Graph due certain reasons.

    Unlike Nobunaga (who was called the 'Fool of Owari'), Nobukatsu was well known as for his sagacity since his childhood. Not only he was doted by his mother, Dota Gozen, but the other family members also had great expectation on him as the next head of the Oda Family. Before long, Nobukatsu consolidated the vassals that supported him and rose in revolt against Nobunaga, claiming that he himself was the head of the Oda Family. However, the two rebellions he attempted ended in failure and ultimately he would be deliberately murdered by Nobunaga.

    The brother of Nobunaga, nothing more and nothing less. That is all there is to the human called Oda Nobukatsu.

    He is fundamentally a sociable young man.
    If pressed to say, his capacity and resourcefulness as a military commander could be regarded as outstanding, but he cannot properly evaluate himself due to his sister being too much extraordinary.
    His elder sister is everything to him, so he resented the Sengoku era that did not approve of her and carried out the crazy deed of instigating the family members who could become an obstacle to her and set them up to be purged alongside him.
    This is merely an assumption, but had they been born as common citizens instead of children of a daimyo, there might have been a future in which the two siblings lived together in harmony.

    This is a digression, but in this manifestation, those mysterious RPFs(1) have also been summoned as optional parts for Nobukatsu (maybe they are fragments of Nobunaga's Saint Graph or something). According to Nobukatsu, they have discreetly been given the latest technical specifications, so trying to find the differences between the older models might be a good way to pass the time.

    Elder sister is amazing! She saved me when I was being bullied in the castle town and then left those ruffians half dead!

    Van Gogh
    Van Gogh

    Vincent van Gogh was painter that was active in the Europe of the 19th century.
    His works became highly valued after his death, earning him enthusiasts all over the world. History tells us that he was male, and his name, portraits and few remaining photographs also make that fact evident.

    On another hand, this Foreigner that appeared while dressed as a boy and calls herself Van Gogh is different from the historical one in both appearance and gender.
    Still, her artistic talent is truly that of Gogh himself.
    She devours large meals, tells jokes and gloomy smiles while drawing pictures all over the place.

    Sure enough, her identity is...

    The historical Vincent van Gogh was born in 1853, in the family of a Dutch minister.
    An art dealer, clerk of a bookshop, and when even his aspiration to convert into an evangelist was met with failure, he set his eyes on becoming a painter. He studied the Hague School, and would later acquire his own distinctive style upon receiving influence of the Impressionists.

    After changing residences to Arles, France, he worked on a various masterpieces (such as the "Sunflowers"), but the deterioration of his relationship with his flatmate Gauguin resulted in him losing his mind and cause the incident in which he cut off his own ear.
    Afterwards, he spent all of his time painting while enduring attacks of mental illness, until he took his own life on 1890, at the young age of 37 years-old. It has been said that there are inexplicable details about his death.

    He was fond of sunflowers, and the yellow color that symbolizes sunlight. He also collected ukiyo-e as a hobby, even attempting to adopt its designs into a portion of his paintings.
    He became charmed by cypresses in his later years, but some theories say that they were a theme that symbolized his views on life and death.

    Her True Name is Klytie van Gogh.
    Klytie is a water nymph described in Greek mythology. One of the Okeanides, the daughters of Okeanus and Tethys. Although once a lover of Apollon, she went mad when his favor was stolen by Leucothoe (daughter of the Persian king Orchamus) and lead her rival in love to ruin by means of slanders.
    However, she was unable to regain Apollon's love and continued to look up at the sun, eventually changing into a single flower.

    One could say that most of Gogh's character and body are derived from Klytie.
    This is why motifs surrounding flowers and jellyfish start to appear as you repeat Ascensions, and the outfit that resembles a mourning dress in her second Ascension is derived from her deep regret and sadness.
    Her low self-esteem and the smile that appears to be flirting with you are a result of self-loathing, which in turn is due to the fact she lost everything to her own folly.
    She is probably unconsciously continuing to unreasonably insist that "I'm Gogh" in order to avert her eyes from that "part of herself that is not Gogh".

    As a "patchwork", she constantly have anxieties about her identity.
    That anxiety eventually invites madness, causing her own Saint Graph to change into the "Evil God of Flowers" and cause the crisis of leading the anthropic principle to eternal sleep all by herself.
    Can you give her a stable identity before that happens? The responsibility imposed on her Master is just too heavy.

    ...however, contrary to expectations, the Servant Klytie van Gogh is stubborn and very cunning.
    Upon learning about her troublesomeness, slyness, moral fiber and strong sense of duty at the end of many adventures, the Master who cultivated a bond with her will probably be able to guide her as a faithful and reliable adviser, without letting her degenerate into a mad god.

    The Prince Dakkar that was described in "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea", or maybe the individual who became his model.
    This "Nemo" is a combination of these two.

    "Phantom" could only come into existence in the Variant Singularity・Shinjuku, but after she hacked into its data, the alchemist of Atlas Sion summoned this peculiar Servant.

    In Novum Chaldea, he is in charge of transporting and supporting the tactical team.
    Land operations are under the jurisdiction of little girl Da Vinci, but sea operations are under the jurisdiction of Captain Nemo, and by looking from that angle one could say that those two are rivals.

    Honest and gentle, Triton was loved by all.
    Meanwhile, Prince Dakkar was a man of conviction and a personification of dynamism.
    As a "Phantom" that combined these two Heroic Spirits, Nemo's character slightly deviates from either the originals.

    This Heroic Spirit who is both Triton and Nemo obtained a single conviction. That is "resistance against domination and trampling".
    Even if the opponent is his god father, he will not allow the weak to be oppressed. Ironically, that also lead to a backlash against modern human society (the consumption culture).
    Even now, he gets a little sullen when facing European culture. Of course, Greece is no exception, but according to him "the world of seas have no national borders".

    When he first appeared, Nemo tried not to show his emotions to Mash and the protagonist.
    That is because, by obtaining the memories of Prince Dakkar, he started to instinctively become wary of the "humans" that give birth to tragedies. As such, he displayed a terribly curt manner of speaking, but...

    Since he has been entrusted with a ship, Nemo remains strict to both himself and others, not allowing spoiled behavior or selfish actions.
    A hard-line Servant with the temperament of a military soldier, truly befitting the name of Captain.

    ...still. As Triton, he is also someone who gives blessings to adventurous journeys.
    By the time he is formally summoned as a Servant of Chaldea, he will probably consider the protagonist as an adventurer・traveller, giving him many blessings and indicating his path.

    At first he would stick to his role - saying that "I am but a submarine" - and never reveal his true self to anyone, not even the Master.
    Once he deems someone trustworthy and lifts is caution, he will conversely become extremely attached to that person.

    His original character is honest and amiable, never abandoning someone he took a liking to.
    A Heroic Spirit that takes pity on people, even if he cannot see through their journey to the very end, he will continue to bestow the greatest blessings as far as his eyes can reach.

    Operating a submarine, much less a military ship, all alone is impossible even for Nemo. Knowing that Nemo would eventually find his own ship unmanageable, Sion incorporated the fundamental, secret skill of the Atlas Institute - "segmented thinking" - into Nemo's summoning.
    As a result, by breaking up his magical energy, Nemo became capable of creating "offshoots that are mostly identical to himself, but specialized in their own respective tasks".
    These are the Nemo Series that work on the dock.

    -Nemo Marine
    The most numerous of the Series. There are about 12 of them (a standing force of 12, a maximum of 24 if you count the reserve), all with the same personality and appearance.
    The labor force that perform all sorts of tasks within the ship such as cleaning, steering, maintenance, etc. Their personality is all but bright, never hating anyone (though they might show some distaste) and, in a crisis, put all their efforts in finding a solution even while complaining. The Series in which Triton's unadorned aspects come out most noticeably.

    -Nemo Professor
    Whenever addressing to males, he always calls them 'Mister'. Due to that, Blackbeard feels a small sense of affinity to him.
    The academic authority within the ship. In charge of analysis, measurement, drafting strategies, etc.

    -Nemo Engine
    The stubborn chief engineer that administrates the engine section and takes pride in his work.
    The reason why he takes command of the engine section (the most severe and dangerous of the entire ship) is due to a conviction akin to a mother's love.
    "If it is for the sake of protecting people!"
    Also, since he possesses a "self" on the same level as the Captain, he seriously think they should exchange roles if he makes a blunder.
    His love towards people is strong, but so is his love towards the Nautilus.

    -Nemo Nurse
    The one in charge of the sickbay.
    The most mature among the Nemos, this "adult Nemo" has been specialized for reasoning and tolerance. In a crisis, he executes his professional duties in a composed and cool-headed manner.

    -Nemo Bakery
    The Nemo that runs the mess deck (bakery), indispensable in any battleship. Since meals is what maintains the morale of the troops, this Nemo is ultimately the strongest.

    The reason why Sion summoned Nemo as a Phantom is due to her not having employed the Chaldea-style of summoning.
    Since the chances of success were unstable, she transmuted a Saint Graph that could operate as a Servant by combining the Saint Graphs of two Heroic Spirits.
    As a result, he possesses both the names of Nemo and Triton, and also ended up becoming one with the "Noble Phantasm of the seas" that is associated to him - the submarine Nautilus.

    When Sion first summoned him at the beginning of the second part, he was still in a state of being both a "mermaid" and a "prince". But upon joining forces with Chaldea and making up his mind about being of assistance to them, his way of being as a "mermaid" was sealed away and he settled on the way of being as "Captain Nemo" for the sake of capturing Atlantis.
    Later, he would become the captain of the Dimensional Boundary Drilling Ship, Storm Border, and give his support to Novum Chaldea's struggles.





    He loves parfaits (the concerned person regard this as a top secret).

    It was impossible to tell his gender, as he was both Triton and the Prince, but his body was settled as male after he decided to be as "Captain Nemo" during his adventures with Chaldea.

    Voyager of the Storm: C++
    A captain purveyor skill. Since Triton was not a captain and Nemo had no experience in "getting through a storm in a tattered vessel" due to the high performance of his ship, his rank is lower than other captain-type Servants.
    However, Nemo's performance greatly improves in a "waterside" field. The inclusion of a "++" in the rank is due to this special trait.

    Indomitable Tenacity: B+
    The mentality, conviction of Heroic Spirit Nemo given shape.
    It provides Battle Continuation and NP charge, but its true worth is displayed when the guts is invoked. A captain must burn the fires to come up from behind when he falls into a dilemma.

    Guide of a Journey: C++
    Having once lead the way for the Argos ship, Triton is endowed with the disposition to guide heroes.
    Since he protects and received the hopes of people that head towards unknown lands, worlds never seen before, Triton has a good compatibility with the way of being of the little girl Da Vinci, who "surpasses boundaries and head towards a better world".
    This too has better efficacy when in a "waterside" field.

    Great Ram Nautilus - With This Great Ram of Nautilus, I Conquer
    Rank:

    Changing into a form that has the submarine Nautilus at its core, he performs a charge attack with the great ram it is furnished with.
    It won't falter no matter what sort of enormous being the enemy may be (a giant squid, huge battleship, etc.), and it is endowed with a special concept that crashes・breaks through such existences.
    Although it can be employed even in places with no water (on land or in the sky), both accuracy rate and destructive power greatly improve when underwater, in the sea.
    An unusual Noble Phantasm whose performance increases when in the field: waterside.


    Ashiya Douman
    Ashiya Douman

    His eyes are like polished obsidian, and his cheeks are always risen in a perfect, cruel smile.
    A gruesome body that can easily tear apart his enemies even barehanded.
    A bewitching beast in human form, which causes those who look at him feel even a beauty of sorts...

    A bonze onmyouji from the Heian period.
    Also called Bonze Douman, or Priest Douman.
    The fiend who vied with Abe no Seimei, the strongest Heian spellcaster.

    Rather than a hero that protects the people, he is categorized as an anti-hero that brings harm to people by means of craftiness and leads the Heian world to peace by means of his own extinction.
    It has been told he once tried to harm the head honcho of those times, Fujiwara no Michinaga, by means of a curse.
    Unlike Abe no Seimei, who was affiliated with a proper government agency (the Onmyouryo), Ashiya Douman was a priest and thus belonged to a "private practice" in a sense.
    It seems that they were in a cooperative relationship at first, but... at some point Douman began looking at Seimei and the Onmyouryo with animosity and opposed them at every opportunity. In the Heian Japan where mystery still lingered strongly, the clash between these two men who had mastered spellcasting was probably terrific.

    Also, if one were to take the legendary episodes seriously, Douman had died many times over.
    This work regards that, having utterly mastered the secrets arts of Hakudou Jounin(1), Ashiya Douman had already obtained a form of pseudo-immortality in his previous lifetime.

    Alterego Ashiya Douman is a being falsely similar to the onmyouji Ashiya Douman that once existed.
    Upon coming into existence as a Alterego, he incorporated three divine spirits and vengeful ghosts into his Saint Graph and turned into a High Servant.

    The incorporated divine spirits and vengeful ghosts are the following:
    First, the goddess from Aztec mythology - Itzpapalotl.
    Second, the evil god from Slav mythology - Chernobog.
    Third, the vengeful ghost of Heian Japan - Akuryou Safu.

    In this work, Ashiya Douman is a clear enemy of the "capital" and its "people" that were protected by Seimei.
    Behaving like a transcendental being that have delved deeply into the Wu Xing and can even manipulate nature (the gods) at times, he ridicules small things, fleeting things, the common people who humbly live their daily lives.
    He enjoys trampling down on people's dignity, convictions just for fun (consequentially, the female Musashi utterly hates him).

    Since he has manifested in the Alterego Class, it is believed that he is not the very Ashiya Douman that actually existed in the past, but a being that caricatured one aspect of him.
    However, according to Caster Murasaki Shikibu, it seems like the past Douman was very much a fiend・troll.

    The Alterego Ashiya Douman that was summoned by Chaldea has no memory about acting as a servant of the "God from Another Planet" or the fact of having opposed Chaldea again and again... or at least, that is how he behaves.
    When questioned why he was summoned as an Alterego possessing a variety powers that he never had in his previous life, he simply says "well, I don't have the slightest idea".

    Of course.
    That is all bullshit.

    He was unmistakably summoned by Chaldea while possessing the memories of the Alterego Limbo - the Douman who endeavored to shine like a black sun - that once opposed Chaldea.
    The question now is: was this an accident-like coincidence caused by the connection he formed with Chaldea? A decision from the Pan-Human History, which holds no regards for one's origins so long he has power? Or maybe, did Alterego Ashiya Douman himself desired that "things turn out this way"?
    (In addition, even if a Heroic Spirit were to desire so, there is no way to proof what sort of influence that would have in the summoning・manifestation)

    Great Turmoil・Akuryou Safu
    Rank:

    Range: 1~80
    Maximum Targets: 400 people
    A reproduction of the world-shaking great malediction set to kill the head honcho of those times, Fujiwara no Michinaga - which would be equivalent to killing the city itself. Were he successful, the capital probably would have instantly fallen into ruin, the citizens would have been assaulted by misfortune and the streets would have been completely covered with people starving to death. Of course, the authorities would also have been ruined.

    In regards to casting this curse as a Noble Phantasm, the vengeful ghost the Minister of the Left, Fujiwara no Akimitsu (the "Akuryou Safu" that fused with Alterego Douman) is temporarily summoned. Thanks to that, the success rate of the spellcasting rises by a substantially large amount.

    The black sun that covers up the sky at the very end is an embodiment of Douman's arrogance and evil nature - a virtual composite manifestation of the goddess of darkness Itzpapalotl and the dark god Chernobog, which were absorbed as components for this Alterego.

    Watanabe no Tsuna
    Watanabe no Tsuna

    Watanabe no Tsuna, a warrior that was mostly active during the mid stages of the Heian period.
    A subordinate of Minamoto no Yorimitsu, together with Sakata Kintoki, Usui Sadamitsu and Urabe no Suetake, he would operate under the banner of the Raikou's Big Four.
    Among them, Tsuna was a warrior that received great trust from Raikou and was cherished by the other three as if an older brother.

    An extremely formal, straight-laced person.
    Sociable despite being somewhat taciturn, he won fame as a level-headed oni-slayer.
    He performed his job flawlessly and, in private, was dispassionate to the point it would be hard for a third party to even imagine it.
    Supposedly, the surrounding people would trust him from the bottom of their hearts not due to his words, but by means of his demeanor and attitude.
    He kills oni out of a sense of duty, not hatred.
    ...but a certain oni is an exception.

    For Tsuna, oni were not something to hate, nor something to save, but simply something to kill.
    He would show no pity or compassion; no hatred or joy.
    In simple terms, it was his job. He would report to work every morning, patrol Kyoto, kill any oni that appeared and then go back home. Next day, he would repeat that cycle.
    If born in modern ages, he would be a businessman that performed his job flawlessly (and always leaves work at the designated time).
    A monster-like human that was never negligent in his training, no matter the situation, and continued to improve his skills.

    Although he understands human livelihood, he does not feel like associating himself with it.
    Although he understand human emotions, he is uncertain whether that exists within himself or not.
    To make matters worse, it is not like he has no emotions. While he may risk his life to protect his colleagues and innocent people, Tsuna does not help them as a form of expressing intense emotions. To put it simply, he is like a robot that has been programmed to aid others.
    According to the person himself, he "does it" because he "cannot help doing so", and that is all there is to it.
    Maybe due not placing himself within the framework of humans, he feels that it is more difficult to kill people than oni.
    He grumbled such a thing to Kintoki and the others once in the past, and they were naturally at lost for words.

    A deficient, deviant(1) since his childhood. He perceives himself as someone who barely shows some humanity by struggling to be a proper member of the Raikou's Big Four, a proper warrior, and kill oni.

    However, the brutal yet luxuriant oni with golden hair is the one and only exception.
    Right now, only she can disturb the emotions that lay deep within Tsuna.

    Arm Severing of Ichijou Modoribashi: EX

    Makes the beginning of an attack impossible to see, thus causing all sorts of evasion to become impossible.

    Incidentally, the sequence of events that lead to him cutting down Ibaraki Douji's arm differs between proper history and those seen in the Imperial Holy Grail War (singularity).

    In the proper history, just as Ibaraki once stated, Tsuna devised a plan to cut her arm.

    Soon after he amputated the arm of Ibaraki Douji, it was renamed from Higekiri to Onikiri.
    It is endowed with special efficacy against demons, oni.
    Just seeing this sword out of its scabbard unconditionally imposes a pressure of B Rank on members of the oni species. So long they don't possess B Rank or above on Mental Pollution, Mad Enhancement or some sort of mental protection skill, they will not be released from that pressure.

    Ibuki Douji
    Ibuki Douji

    Ibuki Douji. The alias of "Shuten Douji" in the Ibuki Mountains of Oumi.
    An impossible birth by natural causes. Having been given life as an onigo, Ibuki Douji grew in the mountains and eventually obtained fearsome paranormal powers.

    After moving to Mt. Ooe, she turned into the great monster "Shuten Douji", who would come down to the capital and enjoy herself in slaughter and pillage...

    Her disposition as a "deity" is strong, and her self-consciousness as a part of nature (world) is high.
    She behaves in accordance to primitive desires.
    She doesn't appear to have any intentions of getting along with humans and their culture, civilization.
    Making a face of someone who does not yet know the depths of alcohol, the delicacy of human life, or the pleasure of indulging in a momentary madness, but...
    Once she immerses herself in her desires, there will be no leniency.
    Harmless if not provoked, but one could say that she is even more dangerous than Shuten Douji in a sense.

    She has a strong fixation with anything that catches her interest once.
    She frequently keeps staring at the target her interest, so long it continues to exist.
    In most cases, she reaches out with her long fingertips, touches it and ends up breaking it to pieces... or maybe, ends up bringing about its corruption and leading it to death.

    In particular, it is very easy for her to become interested in the oni species that are her own different aspect. Naturally, her eyes will probably sparkle towards an existence similar to herself (the child of a dragon god).



    ...this would be Ibuki Douji's original temperament, but something is different in the one who manifested in Chaldea.

    She is being completely influenced by modern culture.

    Even if she cannot completely stand on the same point of view as humans, as her roots are those of a god, her behavior is that of "a young lady Heroic Spirit/Divine Spirit that spends her time fitting in modern society".
    The attitude of someone who has learned quite a lot regarding what humans are all about.

    She also makes provocations and attempts at seduction on others, including the Master.
    It seems like she learned about modern society from somewhere. Although it is impossible to tell if it is true or not, the Heroic Spirit Sherlock Holmes made the conjecture that "maybe she met another Heroic Spirit that had similarly grown accustomed to modern society, and then took advantage of the peculiarities of the Chaldea-style of summoning to forcibly carry over those records."

    Although it seems that she turns back to her inborn disposition, the conduct as a god whenever she gets serious (like when releasing the True Name of the Noble Phantasm), she usually just enjoys herself as the "lady snake" in an easygoing manner.



    Incidentally, whenever she is in her pubescent form (the first stage of Ascension), she displays the behaviors of both "Ibuki, the lady snake" and "Ibuki, the deity".
    When she herself said "it could be dangerous if I shed my skin", she is probably referring to "Ibuki, the deity".

    It should be difficult for her to be endowed with a divine core, as traditions say she is a mixed-blood of humans, but...
    As a child Yamata no Orochi, Ibuki Douji exceptionally possesses this skill at a high rank.
    If she ever gets demoted to an oni, this skill would be lost and probably get transposed as Divinity at low rank.

    Surging Waves of Eight Veins: B
    She inherited one of the aspects that Yamata no Orochi is endowed with as a god - the disposition as a deity of floods.
    The immutable body that goes hand in hand with an intense aggressiveness destroys all things.

    Fingertip of Corruption: A
    Loss of purity, lack of honor, and death.
    Those touched by Ibuki Douji's fingertips are impure, and thus not allowed to remain before gods and people.
    Although categorized as an offensive skill, it obtains plus effects when attempting conversations outside of combat with targets such as spirits of the dead, magical beasts and demoted gods.

    According to the legends of Susanoo in the Kojiki, the god Susanoo no Mikoto descended upon the land of Izumo after being exiled from Takamagahara. There he supposedly saved the Princess Kushinada from being turned into a living sacrifice and exterminated a giant monster.
    Said monster was none other than Yamata no Orochi
    The red-eyed apparition possessing eight heads and eight tails.
    A giant snake, boasting an enormous size that spanned eight peaks and valleys.
    The greatest calamity dragon of Japan.

    Susanoo defeated that giant snake (dragon) and obtained a single divine sword from one of its tails.
    The name of that sword was Kusanagi no Tachi.
    Also known as Kusanagi no Tsurugi, Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi and Tsumugari no Tachi.
    Later, it would be dedicated to the Atsuta Shrine and established as one of the Three Sacred Treasures.

    Ibuki Douji can employ this sword that her father, Yamata no Orochi, held within his body as a Noble Phantasm.
    The single slash from the release of True Name is a fearsome thing that can cut through eight peaks and valleys and bring forth eight new large rivers... However, according to Ibuki Douji, this divine sword is something she temporarily borrowed with only a fraction of its brilliance. Its true worth is not something of this level.

    Sei Shounagon
    Sei Shounagon

    The daughter of Kiyohara no Motosuke, one of the Five Men of the Pear Chamber who compiled kundoku readings of the Manyoushuu.
    A talented woman who made her existence known in a male-dominant society by means of a dynamism that could only be described as mould-breaking.
    Having Empress Teishi - the consort of Emperor Ichijou - as her lifetime's patron, she continued to snuggle up to her until the final moments.
    After her death, the many proses she offered to Teishi were summarized in "The Pillow Book".

    A writer, poet from the Heian period.
    She left behind many mold-breaking anecdotes for a woman of her time - such as being familiar with Chinese poetry・classical literatura (which was regarded as something only men would learn) and being able to talk down men with her abundant knowledge.
    Even in the Diary of Lady Murasaki, it is possible to see that Murasaki Shikibu was considerably conscious about her.

    She first began to serve Empress Teishi as a court lady around her late twenties.
    Despite the age gap between them, Teishi greatly favoured Shounagon, who continued to live up to the expectations of the beautiful and wise Empress.
    Shounagon would write down about the daily lives in the Imperial Court in a humorous manner and eventually consolidated those many proses in a collection of essays.
    This would become the first essay of Japanese history - "The Pillow Book".

    One would think she would always be in a good mood for no reason... but, contrary to expectations, she becomes sulky quite easily.
    Despite pushing around the surrounding people like a whimsical cat, she is an avant-garde Servant that fundamentally prioritizes fun things.
    A sparkling girl who is greatly fond of "queer (emo)" stuff and was overly ahead of her time.

    An oddball who dropped the manners of a poet somewhere behind but, in her case, this results in an much too high affinity with the modern youth culture.
    Also due to the historical fact that she is concerned about her age, there was nothing unnatural when she was summoned at the Teishi Salon in the figure of a high school girl.

    In Chaldea, she maintains a good relationship with Murasaki Shikibu (or so she thinks).

    Originally, Sei Shounagon is not a being that would be recorded in the "Throne of Heroes" as a Servant.

    After finishing compiling the The Pillow Book, she left the Imperial Court.
    Abandoning even the feelings of love and hate, she went on living while thinking back upon her gorgeous past life and holding on a single star to her chest--- but this also meant that another star had to disappear.
    She was not deserving of becoming a Guardian that protects the anthropic principle.

    However, due an irregular summoning performed during a certain incident, a turning point was bestowed to "Sei Shounagon".
    By establishing an emotional bond with trustworthy individuals and undergoing many experiences---
    She was finally accepted into the "Throne of Heroes" after obtaining both her previous identity as a poet (that she herself had sealed away) and an entirely new possibility.

    Thus, her summoning was achieved.
    Even if he/she has not yet experienced those troubled days spent together with "Nagiko"---
    It doesn't change the fact that Sei Shounagon has been longing from the bottom of her heart for the moment when she would once again meet him/her.

    A particular state of mind, achieved not through martial arts nor onmyou, but simply by continuing to write down one's feelings.
    By letting the fountain of emotions gush out as it pleases, she materializes the imagined landscape that was constructed within "The Pillow Book" that she wrote over the real world.
    In other words--- a Reality Marble.

    The world that was repainted by Sei Shounagon becomes a "nostalgic scenery saw once upon a time, at somewhere else" and erodes the hearts of those entrapped within the bounded field.
    Sorrow, nostalgia, melancholy---
    If one allow his heart to be disturbed by the strong emotions that arise and forget about fighting even for an instant.
    He will probably be unable to avoid the strong (and irrational) attack released by her, who took control of this territory.

    In addition, although "Makura no Soushi・Shunshoshou" is the title of the annotated edition produced by Kitamura Kigin during the Edo Period, the fact that the feelings she invested into her work overcame time and became cherished even by the people of later generations was godsend for Sei Shounagon.
    She regards "shunshoshou" as a symbolic word that connects past and future. Furthermore, as it is a word that perfectly expresses her Noble Phantasm - almost as if singled out the lines of haru wa akebono - she has sublimated the name of her Noble Phantasm as "Makura no Soushi・Shunshoshou".

    Odysseus
    Odysseus

    A hero from Ancient Greek Mythology.
    The protagonist of Homeros' long epic, "Odysseia".
    His participation on the Trojan War is portrayed in the Ilias.

    During the Trojan, he makes great accomplishments as the foremost ingenious commander of the Achaeans.
    After the death of Achilleus, he caused Troia to fall by means of the clever scheme that was the wooden horse.
    After the war, he crossed the seas in order to return to his beloved Penelope, encountering many trials along the way. The fierce, one-eyed giants Kyklopes. The curse of the Sea God Poseidon. The temptations of the witch Circe and the sea spirit Kalypso. The songs of the magical bird Seiren. The channel of the sea monster Skylla. The rage of the God Helios. And yet, despite having to make many sacrifices at times, he was able to overcome everything in the end.

    "I am somewhat aware---
    About how agonizingly heavy that one step for the sake of moving forward can be.
    "

    An individual possessing an indomitable will.
    A hero of the Trojan War and one of the greatest adventurers of Greek Mythology.
    A man who relentlessly overcame many adventures, trials in order to make good to his promises. The fact that he became the etymology for odyssey (journey of adventures) is not just for show.

    Even if he were to brag about something, he would in fact act accordingly.
    If he were to declare he could take Troy, he would take it.
    If he were to declare he could escape a carnage, he would escape it.
    If he were to declare he could defeat a magical beast or monster, he would defeat them.
    And, if he were to declare to return to Penelope's side--- he would certainly return someday.

    In the fifth Lostbelt, Atlantis, he manifested as a Servant of the pan-human history and fought against the "Odysseus from the Lostbelt" that stood by the side of the gods.
    They were equal in strength. It even looked like that the Odysseus from the pan-human history (who was endowed with the experience of many battles and adventures) had the upper hand, but it ultimately ended with victory of "Odysseus from the Lostbelt" thanks to the activation of the kleronomia bestowed by Zeus.

    The Odysseus summoned by Chaldea has no memories of the battle in the Lostbelt, but...
    It seems that he was able to grasp the outline of the incident upon coming in contact with the records stored in Chaldea.
    Apparently, he has vowed in his heart to surely return the great debt that "his Lostbelt self" (who had a different birth, and reached different end) incurred towards Charlotte Corday one day.

    Although Odysseus had a career that was pretty much that of a lady-killer...
    The person himself remained committed.
    Still, as he travelled to return to his beloved Penelope, for some reason he ended up coming across many women.

    Maximum Targets: 1 person
    A defensive armament manufactured by the Olympian gods.
    It has been described as both an armor and a shield.
    Originally, it was thought to be a conceptual protection produced by divine hands - an extremely powerful bounded-field of sorts - but Odysseus can exceptionally clad his body in this as a physical "armor" thanks to the deep affections of the Goddess Athena.
    In other words, this is an invincible armor of divine metal that is endowed with conceptual protections.

    A constantly active-type of Noble Phantasm.
    In this work, it is being portrayed as a skill.

    Troia Hippos - Great Wooden Horse of Demise
    Rank:
    B++
    Type: Anti-Country
    Range: 2~80
    Maximum Targets: 400 people
    In the closing years of the Trojan War, Odysseus devised a plan so that a wooden horse was carried inside Troy. Countless Greek soldiers (Achaeans soldiers) were hidden within said wooden horse---
    As a result, Troy invited the enemy into its own home and fell after receiving an attack from the inside. The Achaean army finally achieved victory.
    In some depictions, Odysseus himself was also inside the wooden horse and fought side-by-side with the soldiers.

    The actual condition of the wooden horse as a Noble Phantasm is that of a large-sized mount covered in an armor of divine metal (which is probably a result of Aigis' blessings from the Goddess Athena). By having the wooden horse that was summoned through the release of True Name change into its extermination form (which resembles a giant), it will probably bring about a large destruction that gives a clear impression of how severe the Trojan War was.


    Castor & Pollux
    Dioskouroi

    A certain pair of twins (Dioskouroi) ascended to heavens and became the shining Gemini constellation---
    The name Dioskouroi means "child of Zeus".

    According to the 3rd century BC Katasterismoi, the Gemini constellation was called Dioskouroi - Castor and Pollux.
    They appeared in Lakonia (in the southeast region of the Peloponnesus peninsula) and eventually ascended to heavens.
    Someone who could rival the love these siblings had for each other never again appeared.

    Wishing to record their relationship for eternity, the Chief God Zeus united the stars of two independent constellations into one and named them Gemini.

    Supposedly, the archetype for the Dioskouroi are the ancient Divine Twins that take the figure of youthful horsemen (or maybe even of horses themselves) and rescue people that encounter perils such as wars and voyages.
    The Divine Twins were regarded as "two gods in one", but for a long time neither had their own individual names. The names Kastor (Castor) and Polydeukes (Pollux) could only be first verified in a collection of eulogies to the gods that was produced in the age of the minstrel Homeros.

    Possessing the title of "Anakes (princes)", their aspect as guardian deities of sailors would be emphasized as time went by - in part thanks to becoming well known as crew members of the Argos ship, through stories such as the Argonautica.
    The light cast by the tip of a ship's mast during storms - the so called Saint Elmo's fire - came to be worshiped as their manifestation as guiders of ships.

    Given that they are essentially Divine Spirits of old, these two manifest in the modern age with a unique disposition.
    Although a single being, they possess two bodies, each carrying the dispositions of a different Class. In other words---

    The elder brother Castor - who in later generations obtained legends as a "human child" that does not have the blood of Zeus - converted the humiliation of being demoted from a god to a man into a deep-seated hatred and became an Avenger.
    The younger sister Pollux - who in later generations obtained legends as an "immortal" due being endowed with the blood of Zeus - became a Saber that keeps fighting with fierce sword techniques and a body that cannot be injured.

    Although registered with the Saint Graph of a Saber, it would be more accurate to say they are a sort of Servant with Double Class.
    This peculiarity is probably an exception derived from being Divine Spirits Servants.

    When they first appeared in the fifth Lostbelt, they came into existence as living gods.
    The twin gods that were defeated in battle by Kirschtaria Wodime lost their lives for a time and later forged a contract with Kirschtaria as Lostbelt Servants.
    Having learned about the legends of "their pan-human history's selves" through said contract, the brother Castor harbored a great hatred towards the humanity that caused his decline - regardless of that being an event from the pan-human history.
    The sister Pollux also came to hate the humanity that held her brother in contempt.

    As a result, the siblings became endowed with a fire of deep hatred and consistently kept showing a violent behaviour towards the Chaldea party and the citizens of Olympus.



    On the other hand, the twin gods that were summoned by Chaldea as Servants of the pan-human history do not have the severe violent nature of their Lostbelt's selves.
    Although the elder brother Castor possesses the mentality and background required to come into existence with the Saint Graph of an Avenger, the personality of the younger sister Pollux is especially more gentle when compared to that of the Lostbelt Servant. Since the sister will end up rebuking him, there should be no problem in leaving the brother alone to some extent.

    Divine Core of the Twin Gods: B
    A skill possessed by both of them.
    Given that they are originally twin gods of old, the rank of this should be either A or out-of-scale. However, as a result of receiving the influence of the legends of the twins from Greek mythology that took shape in later years, it is being restricted to B Rank.
    In particular, one can infer this is caused by the elder brother Castor being regarded as "not having the blood of gods" by the legends of later generations.

    The existence of the twin gods invigorates the surrounding people as a hope for overcoming hardships.
    Something similar to Voyager of the Storm, it was originally a composite skill that includes Military Tactics and Charisma.

    Prana Burst (Light/Ancient): A
    These twin gods have been regarded as the very light of "St. Elmo's fire" that flickers on the sea.
    A skill falsely similar to the variation of Prana Burst possessed by a portion of the saint-type of Servants.
    By emitting magical energy in the form of light, they augment their fighting power.

    The skills of Pollux (regarded as an expert of the sword) and the power of Castor (who resents being demoted from a god). A complete・perfect combination attack released by the twins who kept snuggling up to each other even in heavens.
    This coordinated special technique given birth by their tremendous trust on one another has being sublimated to realm of a Noble Phantasm.

    Also, only when performing the release of True Name, the two regain their divinity as an ancient deity almost completely, with their divine core being temporarily raised to the highest rank. An attack that employs the magical energy in the scale of a pure Divine Spirt can probably disregard all obstacles (be them physical or magical) and pulverize its target.


    Caenis
    Kainis

    A warrior and usurper that appears in Greek Mythology.
    As a member of the Argonauts, she underwent adventures together with many heroes.
    It has been told that she was a woman, but became a man.

    A genuine woman in the past, supposedly she possessed great beauty and was extolled as a graceful maiden from Thessalia.
    She kept refusing many marriage proposal, at one point, she received the love of the Sea God Poseidon (Neptune).
    She had her chastity stolen.
    The legend says that, feeling satisfied, the Sea God said "I will grant any wish of yours", to which she answered "make that I am not a woman, so that I never suffer like this again" - and thus Kainis became an invincible man.

    It is uncertain whether she actually became a man.
    Although it has been told that she became a bird with golden wings after death, disappearing in the skies, there are also anecdotes of her corpse as a woman being left behind.
    In either case----
    Kainis/Kaineus turned into a sturdy warrior after that incident, ruling over the land as an usurper.

    A warrior who conceals rage in her body.
    She hates the sea.
    She hates the gods.
    A rage of such a kind that she possesses Class Aptitude as an Avenger.
    However, normally she does not give that impression.
    If she is in a good mood, it may be possible to feel some cheerfulness.
    Even if she is in a bad mood, she will still reply when talked to and go along with some silly chat.
    She loves sweets, so she would probably be greatly delighted someone began to talk about pastry and the likes.

    That being said.
    It becomes impossible to control her once her rage has been ignited.
    This frenzy - in which she is not reluctant to even kill her Master - is sometimes comparable to that of a Berserker.

    She manifested as a female Servant.
    Even her True Name became Kainis, from back when she lived as a woman.

    ...it has been said that, in her deathbed, Kainis changed into "a bird with golden wings".
    Said anecdote has been furnished as a Noble Phantasm in her current manifestation, but there is a possibility that the special trait of "free transformation of the body" that said Noble Phantasm includes is going on a rampage.
    Maybe this is the cause for her manifestation in a female flesh and the animal traits possessed by her body.

    By advancing her Ascensions, the blessings and divine protections that compose her Noble Phantasm (in this work, it is being treated as a skill) start to emerge more pronouncedly and Kainis obtains a figure that is closer to what she had while alive.
    Namely, clad with a sublime armor that is a close resemblance to the great Sea God Poseidon, the shining being with no equals---
    Her figure as an "immortal warrior".

    In addition, as a result of having received a particularly strong favor from Poseidon, her Saint Graph was composed while in a state in which her spiritual core has been drastically improved.
    No longer fitting into the rank of a Heroic Spirit...
    Upon her summoning, the warrior Kainis has achieved a manifestation as a Divine Spirit Servant.

    She appears in the second season as the Servant of Kirschtaria Wodime.
    The reason why Wodime was able to make Kainis (who hates, detests, loathes any form of divinity) serve him obediently is not just because of his exceptional charisma.
    Wodime conveyed in detail the truth about his intentions - the "revision fo the Age of Gods".

    Revise the Age of Gods by turning all humans into gods---
    In short, all gods from ancient ages would lose their way of being. Of course, that also applied to the old gods of Greece, including the Sea God Poseidon, who was the target of Kainis rage!

    "Perfect, that is the greatest form of settlement!"

    Kainis highly endorsed Wodime.
    "In that case, I shall fully wield the blessings and divine protections of the Sea God that have been endowed in this body as a Noble Phantasm!"

    Not only she might be capable of killing her Master, there is even a tendency of proactively trying kill her Master in order to put an end to her own manifestation.

    Divine Core of the Sea God: B
    Given she is a Heroic Spirit, originally Kainis would not possess a divine core, but the Sea God Poseidon has bestowed a special grace to her Saint Graph.
    As a rare exception, Kainis is endowed with a pseudo-divine core upon being summoned as a Servant, thus possessing the spiritual rank of a Divine Spirit Servant instead of a Heroic Spirit.

    Romulus Quirinus
    Romulus Quirinus

    Roma means romance---
    That which defines humans, who outgrew the Age of Gods and obtained the heart to love people as people.
    The symbol for all of that.

    The figure of the nation-founding king Romulus in his younger days - who was born between the War God Mars and the beautiful princess Silvia, raised while having animals as friends and would eventually build the cornerstone of the great Rome. At the same time, his figure from after ascending to heavens as the deified concept called Quirinus, one of the three supreme deities of Rome, given shape.

    A being worshipped as a god, upon manifesting he became a symbol for "the development and expansion of civilization" in particular - one of the more harsh phenomena of the Ancient Roman civilization in human history.
    Just like the homonymous Heroic Spirit that denotes reign and prosperity, he is an existence that exemplifies the possibilities of the humans that have departed from the Age of Gods.

    At times cutting open the world, at times clearing a path for civilization, he who loves humans as a human.
    If you were to liken his romantic arms as a "spear", they would be too big and too sharp.
    A regular Saint Graph is simply not enough; he can only truly be welcomed by means of a Grand Saint Graph.
    Namely----
    Grand Lancer.

    Although he became a regular Lancer upon his manifestation through the Chaldea-style of summoning, that doesn't change the fact he is an extraordinary existence.

    The nation-founding hero of Rome, Romulus kept himself contained within the framework of a human, but this figure has finally revealed his aspects as a god.
    Normally, it would be impossible for a Divine Spirit to be summoned with the Saint Graph of a Grand Class. But, as a very exceptional existence who has a deep connection to human history and became a supreme deity despite being human, he was summoned as a Grand Lancer in the fifth Lostbelt as a result of many miracles.

    In the fifth Lostbelt, several Heroic Spirits of the anthropic principle opposed the King of the Lostbelt Zeus, but they were all defeated.
    In order to entrust hope to the Chaldea that would eventually arrive, these Heroic Spirits mustered their last strengths to leave behind one great project.
    Such was the "Operation Deicide".
    The summoning of Romulus Quirinus, a Heroic Spirit/Divine Spirit who possessed aspects as a human despite being the supreme deity of a single mythological cosmology, took the side of the anthropic principle and concealed a power of the same nature as the thunder wielded by the Greek Chief God Zeus - at times referred as omniscient and omnipotent.

    And thus, "Operation Deicide" was accomplished with the arrival of the Chaldea party.
    Romulus Quirinus manifested in the Lostbelt, fought together with Chaldea and defeated the machine-gods of Olympus.

    He disappeared after the Deicide.
    It was though that he would never again manage to manifest...
    But having form a bond with the Master, it became possible to summon the Saint Graph that was temporarily recorded by the Trismegistus of Novum Chaldea in a state other than the Grand Saint Graph.
    Upon being summoned, he once again wields the arms that are like spears of light for the sake of the anthropic principle.

    His romantic arms that cut open the world, clear the way for civilization and attempt to reach the sky of stars (space) one day are almost like spears of light---
    At the same time that it is an embodiment of people's arrogance in attempting to command all creation, this is also an expression of people's brilliance in constantly attempting to develop while dreaming of an yet unseen tomorrow.
    It brings about severe destruction when employed to attack.
    It should be possible to witness even greater brilliance if this is employed for the sake of defense or creation--- but that is fundamentally not done in this work.

    Voyager
    Voyager

    In 1977, the unmanned space probe Voyager was launched by rocket from an Air Force base in Florida.
    It performed examinations of planets within the Solar System - such as Jupiter and Saturn - and later departed for an endless interstellar mission.
    Even now, he continues to fly in the sea of stars away from the heliosphere.

    Voyager is an immature Servants by two different meanings.
    He is a Heroic Spirt from modern times with an extremely short history; and possesses the body of a young boy of about 8 years-old.
    Originally an assembly of observation equipments made out of aluminum alloy, he acquired an spiritual body equivalent to humans in order to fight through the Holy Grail War and attempt to reach a mutual understanding with his Master.
    As a backlash of this miracle, the common knowledge installed in him is deficient, his vocabulary is somewhat lacking and his flesh is far from sturdy.
    The outline of his external appearance was greatly influenced by the subjectivity of "Utsumi Erice" - a Master with a deep connection to him.

    Nevertheless, in the present Chaldea, one can guess that he will achieve a growth suitable for a Guardian of the anthropic principle through repeated Ascensions.

    Typical of a space probe, his curiosity is full of energy.
    He is eager to take the initiative and experience many things.
    The sense of smell and taste are a fresh stimulus for him, so he has a weakness for delicious cuisine and curious desserts.

    Even in unknown locations, he exhibits an absolute sense of direction and spatial awareness ability.
    His sense of hearing is also excellent, and he can commit to memory everything that he sees and hear.
    Although his vocabulary is scarce, he understands many languages.
    Likes to hear music from all genres and unintentionally ends up getting attracted to any live performances he encounters.
    Seems to have some dislike for baths.

    Kijou Kouyou
    Kijou Kouyou

    A folkloric demoness.
    Supposedly defeated by Taira no Koremochi in Mt. Togakuchi, during the Heian period.
    At the same time that she was the leader of band of thieves that opposed the Imperial Court, it has been told that she performed as a noblewoman who taught reading and writing and cured the illness of the countryfolk.
    Her story is widely performed in noh, joururi and kabuki through the program Momiji-gari.

    ---the life of Kijou Kouyou.
    It has been said that her childhood name was "Kureha", but she changed it to "Kouyou" upon moving to the capital.
    Naturally wise and overflowing with beauty, she fascinated many people by skilfully playing the koto, eventually being recognised by the midaidokoro (legal wife) of Minamoto no Tsunemoto.
    Soon she began to receive Tsunemoto's favor, but was then suspected of attempting to kill the midaidokoro by means of a curse and sentenced to death. However, due to having already conceived Tsunemoto's child by that time, she was exiled to Shinano instead.
    Welcomed by the villagers of the Minase village (later called Kinasa village), Kouyou eventually became feared as a "demoness" that had the bandits of the region under her control.

    The military commander appointed to subjugate her - Taira no Koremochi - would encounter Kouyou in the mountains, but he had a very hard fight. After being granted a spiritual sword for vanquishing demons by praying to the gods and buddhas, Koremochi disguised himself as a travelling priest and challenged Kouyou by himself, finally defeating her.

    Supposedly born due to the prayers that her parents (who were not blessed with children) made to the Demon King of the Sixth Heavens, Kouyou possessed the qualities for sorcery since her early days.
    The Mt. Togakuchi of Shinano that she had been exiled to was a mountain of Shugen where devotees had founded a temple after receiving a manifestation the Kuzuryuushin.
    Also, the neighbouring Mt. Iizuna is well known among the enthusiasts of tengu worship as a land of sorcery・supernatural.
    With this background, Kouyou was able to put another demoness - the "Oni no Oman", a remnant of Taira no Masakado's group who resented the Imperial court and was well known for her superhuman strength - under her command.

    Space Ishtar
    Space Ishtar

    A Divine Spirit Servant that came from the Servant Universe, who is freewheeling and powerful about living.
    Although she pretends to be an Archer, her Class is Avenger for some reason.
    Due some sort of fate, she formed a team with Jane and became a bounty hunter that chases after rascals all day long.

    "My name is Ishtar. The goddess Ishtar.
    What? You want me to add 'Space' otherwise it would get confusing?
    I refuse! 'Space' is not cute at all!
    "

    A heroine of justice, yet an outlaw.
    She is in a strange position in which, even though playing the part of a villain, everything that she does is for the sake of other people.
    Her alignment changed to "Evil" due awakening as a "threat to mankind", but this does not mean that she is a rascal・evil-doer.
    Her personality is pretty much the same as the Ishtar from Pan-Human History, but she does not toy with others for fun.

    She boastfully approves the good deeds performed by individuals as "something righteous", rejoicing about it in secret, and glares in hostility at the evil deeds performed by individuals as "something unsightly", brazenly​ speaking ill of it (and if the other party is a rascal, she will mercilessly extort his assets, life force and fate).

    Just like the normal Ishtar, S. Ishtar has a freewheeled personality that looks down on the harshness・shallowness of human society. That being said, she shows consideration for people's livelihood​ in her own way, becomes concerned over virtuous humans in her own way, and ultimately gives precedence to everyone's success over her own reward... in other words, she has an inclination that is unbecoming of Ishtar.

    For example, while Ishtar attempted to sacrifice others during the Summer Race in order to revive Gugalana and restore her own privileges, S. Ishtar would probably repent in the end, break Gugalana with her own hands and distribute its resources among the participants.
    "True, this is such a waste that I want to go in a rage, but I felt that this was the right thing to do! I can't lie to myself, you see?"
    Just like this, although fundamentally Ishtar herself, she will not become an enemy of humanity at the very end...
    In a sense, S. Ishtar is a goddess who "is bad at being Ishtar".

    *Motivation・Attitude Towards the Master
    She has a keen interest in the very existence of a "Master", who can form a contract and employ Servants even though he is just a human.
    "What, this kind of post exists in your world!? Isn't that too amazing for a human!?"
    as you see, she is honestly impressed that a human (who she perceives a "weakling") can understand Servants.
    Despite not respecting the Master, she does see him as "something important" and smiles like an imp while thinking "I will listen to him so long my humour doesn't change♡
    ".
    As he is a life-form from a different world・different universe, she is making an effort to not become more emotionally invested in him than necessary. Still, since the guards of her heart (romance flags) are weak, it is pretty much a given that she will go astray at some point.
    The normal Ishtar feels like "an older girl from the neighbouring house" thanks to her intimate sense of distance, but S. Ishtar lacks that due to her acting unduly distant. In exchange, there is a strong feeling of "although out of my league, she is shinning really close by".

    A cerebral body(1) cut away by the "primordial goddess" herself.
    A Divine Spirit Servant that was reincarnated in the blue sparkling galaxy in order to obtain new experiences.
    Space Ishtar is the latest version of "real-life goddess" from the Servant Universe.
    Not a "Venusian goddess that governed Venus, as Earthlings saw (observed) it", but a "Venusian goddess generated by an ancient civilization of Venus". Thus, from the point of view of Earthlings, one could say that she is pretty much an alien.

    The term primordial universe denotes "the universe in which humans existed as humans" from way before the blue sparkling galaxy (Ether Universe; the current Servant Universe world).
    Back in the early days of that old universe - a time when mammals weren't even born on Earth - the goddess Ashtart was worshipped by the prehistorian, ancient civilization of the universe.
    At that time, people did not possess the concept of worship and 'goddess' was a word that denoted the very "sector of space where life-forms live".
    It is unknown whether she is a concept given shape or if her way of being was turned into a concept instead, but the Ishtar・Ashtart from the primordial universe became "a galaxy in human form". Originally, she is neither something that could be handled by human hands or something that could turn into a Servant.

    By coincidence, Professor Tokiomi discovered the spiritual core of that goddess and raised her as the "good half". Also, after his death he entrusted the fate of his daughter to his faithful assistant.
    "Even if I manage to teach her textbook goodness, Ishtar will soon see through its inherent hypocrisy (since she is a clever child). It might be fine while I remain by her side, but she may become fed up with goodness and turn to her original evil self eventually.
    However, if she were to watch Jane (who is an unfeigned, virtuous person by nature that arrives at the truth in the most succinct manner, albeit at the cost of occasionally bringing about chaos and destruction to the surroundings) and come to understand that good and evil are not always two sides of the same coin​, she will probably not sink into evil so easily at the very least.
    "
    Just as the Professor predicted, S. Ishtar was forged into an outstanding straight man without falling into evil, wholesomely(?) growing into a savage dog bounty hunter that protects the weak and bites at the strong - although she is somewhat easily angered and fussy about cost-benefit calculations.
    Incidentally, Jane herself has (surprisingly) not changed at all.

    Also called "S. Ishtar".
    Saint Graphs 1 to 3 are all different individuals, but one could also say that they are the same person since they share a common root. Just think of them as the cool #1, the tomboyish #2 and the transcendental #3.
    The trick to skilfully associate oneself with a goddess is "to be both as earnest and sketchy as possible"

    Independent Action: C
    Having been born as a goddess, raised as a human and awakened as a Servant, S. Ishtar does not expend prana to remain in this world even if she is not contracted with a Master.

    Divine Core of a Goddess: A++
    Having inherited the divine core of an "ancient goddess of war and good harvest" that is the archetype of many goddesses similar to Ishtar (Ishtar, Astarte, Anat), her rank in this skill is pretty much the highest possible.

    Revenger: EX
    Something that jumbled the anger, suffering and grief of "...looking back, I did something really inexcusable..." that were born from ultimately being looked down as a demon for some reason, even though she was a great goddess in the past.
    The goddess who accepts herself as being evil despite standing on the side of justice (Lawful) feels somewhat unfit to be an Avenger.
    *In the Old Testament, this goddess was called "Ashtart" and treated as general term for all foreign goddesses, goddesses of good harvest. However, that name born in the Old Testament would later be degraded as that of a demon (Astaroth) in Western Europe

    Devil's Sugar: A
    Despite fretting over being degraded into a demon, she perfectly handles its powers of "fascination and arousal" - surely, she is a true demon.
    S. Ishtar's smiles and blown kisses improve the morale of allies and allows them to draw out a power beyond their limits while disregarding the burden to their bodies. Since this is a charm (curse) to be employed on allies, it negates fascination from the enemy since they are already charmed.
    One might as well call this a demonic charisma, which combined the aspects of a goddess of victory with those of a demon that brings ruin to people.

    Venus Driver: B

    One who moves Venus. Or maybe, one who spurs beauty.
    The divine protection of Venus improves the destructive power of her Noble Phantasm and allows her to freely change its attributes. A skill befitting the "primordial goddess", whom many goddesses would later derive from.

    Multiple Starling: EX
    A single great crown.
    Something derived from the goddess whom Ishtar is based on, the crowns of the various goddesses praised as "Queen of Heaven" have overlapped and returned to their complete shape.

    S. Ishtar is not "constantly riding on a boat" like Ishtar.
    What S. Ishtar summons is a temple (the Temple of Baal that Anat supposedly built) of ominous shape and an aggressive form... or so it has been said...

    By the way, Edin means grassland, plain in AkkadianSumerian. It is regarded as the etymology of the Eden that appears in the Old Testament.
    Shugra(2) is the crown found in that Edin. Something bestowed to Ishtar when she entered Edin.
    Quasar is a modern astronomic terminology. It holds the meaning of quasi-stellar object.
    Located in a sector of space far away from Earth, it is described as "brightest of celestial objects" due the strong light it releases.

    Calamity Jane
    Calamity Jane

    Coming from the Servant Universe, a cheerful space☆cheerleader that do things at her own pace.
    Someone who loves new things and never thinks deeply about complicated stuff.
    As for exactly how thoughtless Jane is, she is the sort of person who completely forgets about yesterday's grudges and debts.

    "What, you dropped your cellphone in the gap between those rocks?
    Leave it to me! For now, let's try blasting our way through.☆
    "

    Er, this damn happy-go-lucky.
    Also, it seems that she was once one of the most distinguished​ reconnaissance units (scout) in the universe or something.

    History tells us that she was a scout, gunman from the Western Pioneering period, in America.
    Although not exactly an outlaw, there are many claims that her achievements are exaggerated or of unknown authenticity. Even back when she was alive, her career was filled with public criticisms. The fact that she has many debuffer-like skills despite her positive personality originates from that dual nature.
    An individual from the American West who called herself "Calamity" and lived in the same era as Billy the Kid.
    An expert gunslinger and an outstanding scout, she was crowned with the nickname "Queen of the Plains" due being the lover and comrade in arms that lived through many predicaments with Wild Bill Hickok, the "Monarch of the Plains".

    Opinions diverge on the reason why she earned herself the name Calamity. Some say that it derives from the legends as a "rescuer from calamities", when she rescued a cavalry squad from an Indian attack. Others that it came from the fact her lovers would always lose their lives in battle, a "woman that invites calamity". There are even some that say both theories are true.

    A mood maker who prefers to support a "hard worker" rather than "herself".
    Possessing an extremely positive way of thinking, she sees the future as something that exists as a matter-of-course. Even when the fate of the universe hangs on the balance, she never falls into despair and continues to believe that survival is possible in a carefree manner.
    Although her motivations all originate from good intentions, there are times when she behaves in a way that cause people to doubt if she is really a good person.
    For example, upon realizing that "there is a bridge about to fall! That's dangerous!", she would end up cutting down a pillar from a neighbouring house and bringing it over.

    Never criticizing others, and yet she rejoices over and praises people's accomplishments, no matter how small they may be.
    Thanks to this, she has a good compatibility with S. Ishtar - who easily gets carried aw... or rather, who improves whenever praised.
    A capable space scout, her survival abilities are exceptional.
    However, her capacity to earn a livelihood is zero.
    Although her skills in (impromptu) sabotage and disturbance strategies that do not target people are remarkable, her capacity in direct, anti-personnel combat falls behind somewhat.

    A minimum version of the Noble Phantasm that she can no longer use at the moment.

    Having received a curse due defeating the "primordial goddess" once, this Noble Phantasm can no longer be employed.



    In the Servant Universe, she participated in the "primordial goddess sealing team" of 2,000 years ago as a scout.
    Although the operation was successful thanks to the accurate surveillance intel that she provided, she received a curse of "immortality" as compensation for killing a goddess and ended up becoming incapable of dying until the time came for the goddess to awaken once again.
    Under normal circumstances, the mind would grow weary and degrade after a long time of wandering, but Jane did not yield to this curse thanks to her inherent cheerfulness​.

    Astolfo (Saber)
    Astolfo (Saber)

    The unexpected Saber Astolfo.
    Utterly rejected as having no motive, reason or sense; but, at any rate, he became a Saber, extolled as the most excellent of Classes.
    "Yeah! Did you see that!? Yeah!"

    One of the Twelve Peers of Charlemagne if nothing else, so he had the qualifications for the Saber Class.
    However, it seems that those whimsical enough to summon Astolfo (rumored to be the weakest among the Twelve Peers) as a Saber (the most excellent of Classes) are quite rare.

    His alignment remains unchanged as Chaotic Good. In other words, one can say that the usual Astolfo has merely picked up a sword.
    Even if he was originally in the Rider Class, since he holds a sword, his skills with it must be a little above average.

    Maybe turning into a Saber has powered up his knightly qualities somewhat, for he is currently 5% more polite than usual and can remain rational for 5 seconds longer.
    The angle of his bowing is 5 degrees deeper, and he graps people's hands with 5 times more strength.

    The reason why Astolfo became a Saber stemmed from the Christmas Event of 2019.
    Having forcibly received the wish-granting Holy Grail (bell) from Nightingale, Astolfo ended up unconsciously fulfilling his wish of becoming a Saber, which he had a usual admiration for.

    He had lost his powers as a Saber when Nightingale obtained the Holy Grail.
    But upon seeing the dejected Astolfo, Nightingale turned him back into a Saber - that was the public debut of Astolfo Saber.
    Incidentally, when Astolfo was turned back into a Saber, the first thing he did was to turn to his Master and shout:

    "I am your sword!"

    He wanted to boldly say those words as a Saber.

    His admiration for the Saber Class could be roughly summed-up to just about that.

    The worst thing is that, after a certain amount of time has passed, Astolfo will begin to increase himself like compounding interests(3).
    The sight of almost a hundred of Astolfos chattering and making a fuss would seem like a nightmare to some Servants.

    Nightingale (Santa)
    Florence Nightingale (Archer)

    The angel of Crimea who holds servicing and dedication as her creed. A conviction of steel. The one who saves people. The Little War Office.
    Her character is "roughly" the same as her Berserker self.
    Holding a large firing weapon that looks like both a gun and an umbrella, her Class changed to Archer.
    Based on the red attire that she is wearing... she is Santa-type Servant... or so it seems?

    Archer Nightingale believes that all sweets in the world should turn into medicines (like sweet cold medicine).
    However, she will never place that wish on the Holy Grail.
    Archer Nightingale believes that she has to do it herself.

    If asked if "don't you think it would be better if all medicines in the world turned into sweets", she would probably reply "what is the point!? Of turning medicines!? Into sweets!?"
    This is a point she is quite particular about.
    "Sure, there is something romantic about turning sweets into medicine. However, medicines should stay as medicines".

    A perception that is somewhat out of sync with her surroundings and a medical treatment that does not hear to any arguments.
    Those alone remain pretty much the same as the usual Heroic Spirt Nightingale...
    But on a closer look, you will probably notice that her speech is somewhat more ladylike than usual.
    Although not often, she also expresses some romantic words on occasion.
    Nightingale's mentality from when she was a young girl (a time before she entered the field of nursing・medical treatment) is mixed within Archer Nightingale. Thus, when compared to her time as a Berserker, there has been a small increase in the frequency of expressions that show a glimpse of her well-bred background.

    The change in her Saint Graph at this occasion was derived from the interference of Nursery Rhyme.
    Archer Nightingale came to accept herself as a young girl by the end of this incident, so she will probably become more active as a new Santa-type of Servant.
    To be specific...while praying in the holy night...she will fight on in order to improve nursing and defeat all sorts of diseases.

    ...'that is the same as always', you say?
    It might actually be the case, but not quite.

    Superman Orion
    Orion

    Class Archer. A superman who claims to be the greatest hunter of Greece.
    His manly and lively body possesses the physical strength to bring down any sort of beast, be it with a bow or bare-handed.
    Also an inveterate playboy, but...he was loved by the Moon Goddess Artemis of all people. An extremely pleasant...and pitiful... human whose life was full of ups and downs.

    With a name meaning "he who urinates", Orion was a child born between the Sea God Poseidon and Euryale (a different person from the goddess Euryale).
    Boasting of being able to bring down any beast, he ended up having his eyes stolen due being involved in troubles with a certain woman.
    Relying on the sound of hammers, he set sail on a small boat and managed to recover his sight through the influence of the Goddess of Dawn Eos,, who he had met along the way.
    ...please take notice that he had already set a dangerous flag with a goddess at this point.

    Sensing danger in the fact that his younger sister had grown in love with Orion, the Sun God Apollon instigated Artemis to shoot down Orion while he was at sea by saying: "you claim to be an expert of the bow, but can you shoot that man called Candaon".
    Artemis ended up flawlessly shooting through her beloved Orion and supposedly grieved as she held tight to his dead body.
    She thought about asking Asclepius (who supposedly could resurrect the dead) to bring Orion back to life, but Asclepius himself died by means of Zeus' thunder before he could try.
    Having no other choice, Artemis sublimated Orion to the stars.
    During winter, look up to the sky in search for three bright stars (tristar). They are called the Belt of Orion.

    A variation of the skill Divinity. Other than being able to run on the sea, he can also perform underwater indefinitely.
    Furthermore, it is also possible to freely invoke rain and Orion frequently employed this - mostly in order to captivate women by creating a situation in which "an incessant rain pours on a normally cheerful man in a manner that makes it seems like he is crying" (apparently, it did not worked very well).

    Curse of the Heavenly Scorpion: D
    One of the many causes of death for Orion.
    He is weak against scorpions, to the point of being said that the constellation of Orion withdraws when the scorpion approaches.

    He is receiving a strong pressure dubbed as affection by his lover(?), the goddess Artemis. That extremely strong pressure applies plus buffs on him, naturally tempering his body. All parameters (including MGI and LCK) are Rank-UP, with STR in special receiving a double boost.

    Strong Arm of Animality: B+
    A strong arm(1) that supposedly can strangle lions to death.
    When facing such a straightforward form of violence, even demonic beings and magical beasts run away in fear.
    It is simple to tear apart a coin, and even the jaws of Cerberus can be smashed.

    ...however.
    A fatal trap lies in here.
    In simple terms, the one loved by these stars is also loved by the gods (especially goddesses)

    Mandricardo
    Mandricardo

    A former king and adventurer!
    After obtaining the armor of Hektor at the end of an adventure, I triumphantly travelled around in search for Durandal.
    And...throughout the conflict over Durandal and many other things, I ended up realizing the vanity of the world. Anyway, I'm Mandricardo, pleased to meet you.


    A young man who realized the vanity of the world and attained a somewhat gloomy disposition.
    Self-conscious over the fact that he is a minor hero, self-deprecating remarks often pop out from him.
    The so-called "type that places insurances on his abilities", he carry matters in a cautious, conservative manner.

    In his previous life, he went on a rampage with a haughty, "I'm the strongest"-kind of spirit. Still, it seems like the fact that he couldn't defeat Rogero (Bradamante's lover) even though he had both Durandal and Hektor's armor became a severe trauma for him, so he interacts with the Master with an attitude that is constantly lacking in self-confidence.
    In a regular Holy Grail War, he would act as a man who holds many anxieties over important communications.

    If nothing else, in order to also encourage himself, he displays some confidence during battle.

    However, since this copies only Durandal's normal attack power, the durability will depend on the weapon that he holds (mostly E Rank).

    Europa
    Europa

    A princess that appears in Greek Mythology.
    Widelly known as a divine consort that was married to the Chief God Zeus.
    The daughter born between the Phoenician king Agenor and Telephassa. Also told to be daughter of Phoenix (Agenor's son), but that does not change the fact that she was born a princess.

    Europa was granted with three gifts by the Chief God Zeus.
    Those are the bronze Talos, a hunting dog and a throwing spear.
    Europa was deified after death, and the white bull that she rides turned into the constellation of Taurus.
    According to some theories, Europa's name is regarded as the etymology​ for "Europe".

    A compassionate, fluffily princess.
    Calm and carefree. A good-natured person who does not care about minor details.
    Smiling gently; behaving with levity; somewhat drowsy; under normal circumstances, her reaction will be any of those. She won't be (much) perturbed even if a divine beast or giant appears before her. That disposition to not become flustered even when kidnapped by the chief god - should it be seen as being absent-minded, or as being endowed with the style of a divine consort that snuggles up to a supreme being...

    A certain goddess and fellow divine consort once stated: "it is dubious whether she is properly perceiving reality".
    Supposedly, she herself smiled friendly even after hearing that.

    Rather than a divine consort, the awareness as a grandmother is quite strong in her. She perceives all European Heroic Spirits that lived in later ages as her "grandchildren" or "great-grandchildren".

    Affection of the Chief God: A+
    Europa is deeply loved by Zeus, the supreme being of Greek Mythology.
    A skill that brings about many divine protections. At the same time, it conceals the danger of inviting the indignation of the goddess Hera, Zeus' wife, but――― Europa herself gives no heed to that. As far as she is concerned, Hera is a magnificent goddess that ought to be respected.

    White Bull of the Chief God: C
    The Zeus that met with Europa - in other words, the white bull - is a Divine Beast endowed with a powerful fascination effect. The constellation of Taurus itself, said to instantly charm those who looked at it.
    Rather than Europa herself, this is a skill related to the bull that she rides.

    A Noble Phantasm bestowed by the Chief God Zeus in order to protect his beloved Europa, it originally looked like a hunting dog as explained before, but its shape was changed once she said "I prefer something that looks like you. Quite lovely and perfect to be used as a pillow."

    It constantly protects Europa as she rides on its back.
    It can gallop anywhere, even over water. This Noble Phantasm is the reason why Europa has manifested as a Rider.
    If the True Name were to be released, it would probably run bravely around the enemy camp, but that is fundamentally not done in this work.
    In addition, she was bestowed with the skill "White Bull of the Chief God" by this Noble Phantasm.

    Cast(1) by Hephaestus (one of the Twelve Olympians), a super weapon bestowed to Europa by the Chief God. A Noble Phantasm whose raison d'être is the absolute protection of Europa. Its durability is tremendous and not even the gods can destroy it with ease.
    Originally, this would be a "monster" instead of a giant, but it acquired the current shape of a "giant" due being commonly mistaken with the Colossus of Rhodes.

    It senses and exterminates enemies automatically.
    Once angered, it swoops down on the opponent as its limbs become red hot. An ordinary living creature would probably evaporate in an instant.
    In this work, it is summoned during a portion of her normal attacks and when the True Name is released, sensing the existence of enemies and raging instantaneously. It then strikes at the enemy camp with a large, incandescent iron fist that became red hot.

    Once upon a time in Crete, Europa would often have fun while riding on Talos shoulder, but Talos was extremely troubled by this due its condition of becoming red hot once angered.
    "Master, please come down soon".
    The witch Medea is among the things it has difficulty dealing with. That is because, back in the Age of Gods, Medea attacked it on the heels (its weak point) and caused the divine blood ichor that served as its source of magical energy to leak out, resulting in it stop functioning.

    Yang Guifei
    Yang Guifei

    The beautiful consort that flared up the fire of civil war in the great country of Tang and became the main cause behind the downfall of a dynasty.
    A Foreigner that fickly changes her facial expressions: from a childhood friend-type town girl overflowing with charm to a bewitching favourite princess that is eager to be spoiled.
    What she conceals is the dark hell fire of an evil god that dwells in the stars...?

    "I exhaustively offered my beauty to the country. My love to the Emperor. And my heart to my blood relatives.
    Still, just this biwa, just the joy that come from singing and dancing are mine alone―――
    "

    Her True Name is "Yang Yuhuan".
    A childhood friend-type high-spec beautiful girl? The type that is not very self-aware, even after becoming instantly famous when a relative arbitrarily enlisted her in a national beauty contest.
    Her forte are singing, dancing and playing the biwa. An unequalled lover of hot springs and lychee.
    Honest and positive. A hard-worker who feels joy in devoting herself to those she is close to.
    She became the consort of Emperor Xuanzong, who ruled at the climax of the Tang Dynasty, in its 300 years of history. Xuanzong was Wu Zetian's grandchild. Thus Wu Zetian is Yang Yuhuan's grandmother-in-law... or so you may say, but the subject would create an instant hell.

    Since she was little, her beautiful face was a source of trouble that attracted scoundrels and magical beasts, causing the person herself to become introverted. However, it also what saved her when she and her siblings became adrift in the streets after their parents' death. Henceforth, she started to proactively employ her physical appearance as a tool to make people happy, even becoming conceited about it.

    Anastasia (after change)
    Originally, Anastasia would be an existence of negligible strength even if summoned as a Servant. However, she attained unmatched force thanks to obtaining the powers of Viy by means of the interference of the Lostbelt.
    As a descendant of the Romanov Empire, she agonizes in the threshold found between a sense of duty towards guiding her people and the hatred over the fact that same people slaughtered her family.

    Her choice between these two will depend on her Master, but in most cases she will decide for the thorny path of carrying out her duty even while hating them.
    She is not so weak to the point of continuing to hate someone whose face she does not even know.

    Still, as the saying "the nail that sticks out gets hammered down" goes, the slanders from people who shunned him for his too great of a reputation flied about and caused the Emperor to send him a poisoned drink.

    "I devoted myself faithfully and never did anything to feel ashamed before Heavens, so why am I forced to drink poison...?"

    ...he supposedly lamented like that.
    Soon after his death, Northern Qi lost its military superiority and collapsed.


    Qin Liangyu (after change)
    The ruling Emperor at the time, Chongzhen Emperor, was a man highly suspicious of others and known for his overly hasty political purges.
    However, there are also indications that political corruption in the Ming dynasty had already reached its limits and Chongzhen could not trust anyone in the first place.
    That being said, his execution of Yuan Chonghuan (a rarely seen great commander) became one of the causes why the Ming dynasty perished in Chongzhen's generation.

    But even said Chongzhen received Qin Liangyu with a kind hospitality, to the point of presenting her with a poem.

    His assessment of her was proven correct, as Qin Liangyu continued to faithfully serve the Ming and the Southern Ming (its successor state) until her death of old age, at 74 years-old.
  7. Master of Chaos's Avatar
    Little Da Vinci (Rider)
    Leonardo da Vinci

    An artificial Heroic Spirit cast by Da Vinci.
    At any rate, energetic and precocious!
    Dashing across the battlefield on a roller skate, an innocent and beautiful Hybrid Servant who fights with the Ultimo Manipulator that is deployed from an almighty satchel.

    "Eh, 'who are you after all?' you ask.
    Well of course, I am an alter ego that the almighty genius - Leonardo da Vinci - casted in preparations for the Second Grand Order and the world's greatest secretary-type beautiful girl―――
    In other words, the lassie Da Vinci-chan!
    "

    Personality:
    While fundamentally the same as Da Vinci, she has a somewhat stronger qualities as a young girl. Her speech is more gentle and she also mixes in some girlish vocabulary in the middle.
    What is found at her handling of others and the basis of her remarks is not the "admonishment from above as a teacher, wise person", but an student-like nuance of "I want you to teach me, as someone who is will learn about everything from now on".
    "Read this book for me!"; like a young girl who pester you in such a way.

    Unlike other Heroic Spirits, Da Vinci was a personification of the spirit of inquiry・desire of self-improvement even after becoming a Servant. Regardless of being the dream of a dead person, he remained a person who lived in the present (moment).
    That way of being remains the same even in the little Da Vinci. She too runs around day and night in order to achieve the greatest accomplishment that she can. That being said, she is dissatisfied・insecure about her present self and her decreased output.
    "Am I as capable as my previous self?"; that she is uttering such a thing is a manifestation of that fact.
    Even if she has inherited all the memories of the previous Da Vinci, those are not the experiences of the little Da Vinci.
    That is why she admires it.
    That "single year that my original self spent together with Chaldea's staff".
    And, at the same time, she yearns for it.
    A memory that is comparable to it. All while having a sense of responsibility about leaving behind an accomplishment that she can boast about even when compared to that meritorious deed​.

    "An anthropic principle that was born to attend(1) to the travel of the second season"

    An artificial Heroic Spirit cast by Da Vinci.
    Mona Kadmon.
    Da Vinci created a copy of herself in preparation for a worst case scenario, while taking into account the "dark clouds beyond the year of 2017" that naturally could be predicted after the Anthropic Principle Incineration Incident.
    Da Vinci worked in Chaldea while remaining without a Master (she created a doll of herself and defined that as her Master), but that was only possible thanks to Chaldea's electric energy.
    So she meant to create a "substitute" that could support the Master in her place, in the occasion that leaving for a quest outside Chaldea became necessary.
    Although it was not her intention, the Third Successful Summoning Case of Chaldea - Leonardo da Vinci - departed by the hands of Rasputin.
    Afterwards, Little Da Vinci would then take over for her.

    Instead of a Heroic Spirit, little Da Vinci is actually a kind of homunculus, golem. She does not need a Master and can take action almost like any human. However, her lifespan is short, with all her functions being fated to to stop within a year.

    Both Da Vinci and little Da Vinci were aware of that from the beginning. Little Da Vinci has no dissatisfaction or fear towards her period of activity. She simply smiled while saying "this is how lifeforms work".
    Although she asks to "let me hear about something new", that is not due to sorrows of parting, lingering attachment. Rather, it is derived from her spirit of inquiry and longing - wanting to know as much "wonderful things" as possible within her allotted time.

    Although her almightiness decreased with the miniaturization, this is only on the level of "a child cannot reach on top of the shelves, right? That is what this is all about". The range (genre) of what she knows does not change, but what is within the scope of her reach is more limited.
    If she were to devote her undivided attention to something for a long time, it would be possible of her to do the same things as the previous Da Vinci. However, little Da Vinci simply "does not have such time left".

    At high Ranks, it would not only recover damaged weapons and injured Saint Graphs, but even bring the NP back to its starting conditions, from when the battle began. Still, the Da Vinci that is stuck on a little girl's frame cannot display that much of a performance.

    A Dream to the Stars: D
    The hope and conclusion embraced by those cast as transient lifeforms.
    This Leonardo da Vinci has lost the skill "Pioneer of the Stars".
    However, the reason for why intelligent life was born from that soul and the truth that the short lived should aim for dwell inside of her in the form of "art" (created from the "greatest intellect of mankind" named Da Vinci, the little girl Da Vinci has also inherited said intellect and achieved the truth of the "objectivity, farsightedness derived from being a manufactured, short-lived life-form" that Mash and the other homunculi possess.

    Jason
    Iason

    The son of Aison, king of Iolkos. His name was Diomedes originally, but it got changed to Iason when he was put into the care of Kheiron.
    He went through many adventures as the captain of the Argo ship.

    When Iason demanded that Pelias (the half-brother of his father Aison) returned the throne that he had usurped, he requested the Golden Fleece as a condition.
    Iason then built a single ship and recruited adventurers from all over Greece.
    The ship's name was Argo, while its crew were called Argonauts.

    Herakles, Kainis, Atalante, Castor, Pollux, Orpheus and others. At the end of the great adventure of the ship that gathered such numerous heroes, Iason took back the Golden Fleece. However, at that occasion, Iason cajoled Medea and turned her into his wife. He done it.(1)

    ...what happened after that goes without saying.
    Jealousy invited hatred, and hatred summoned revenge.
    It has been said that Iason had everything stolen from him - including his status and honor - and then died crushed by the bow of his ship when he hanged his head at the Argo's prow.

    Timid, coward and yet his longing towards heroes is greater than others; for better and for worse, he has a personality that is "unbefitting" of a hero.
    Still, just like how Medea once said in the battle of the Timeless Temple, he is the type of person whose "brains become more clear the more cornered he is". In the Greek Lostbelt as well, he displayed his true abilities after being driven into a predicament.
    In addition, for someone that thinks about matters rationally like Odysseys, a person like Iason - who leave things to chance once he has fallen into a dilemma - is an extremely bad match.

    In that sense, even after being summoned as a Servant, it might be a little difficult for him to lead the life full of glory that he desires so much.
    There are even opinions that he unconsciously tries to make himself fall into a dilemma, knowingly or not.
    "Don't push me, don't you dare push me!?" or something like that.

    Paris
    Paris

    The Trojan hero Hektor, one of the Nine Worthies.
    Paris was his younger brother and the one who began the Trojan War by taking away Helene (even though she was promissed to him by a goddess) from King Meneraos.
    He struggled together with Hektor and, after Hektor's death, played a role in shooting down Achilleus.

    Born as the son of Priamos, king of Troy, Paris was abandoned at the summit of Mt. Ide due a prophet predicting that "a child that will soon be born shall lead Troy to ruin".

    However, the baby was able to survive thanks to the milk of a she-bear. Having witnessed that, Agelaos (the man who abandoned Paris at the king's orders) decided to raise him together with his own children.
    In addition, the name Paris means "sack" and is derived​ from the fact that he was put into a sack when carried to the mountains.

    Having grown into an impeccable pretty boy, Paris was once day entrusted with refereeing (judge) which of three goddess - Athena, Aphrodite or Hera - was the most beautiful.
    Hera proclaimed that she would bestow him a throne and wealth, while Athena said she would provide victory and good looks. But Paris choose Aphrodite when she promised to give him Helene - the most beautiful woman in Greece.

    However, Helene was the wife of Meneraos already, so Paris inevitably had to steal her away from him.

    Furthermore, the men who once competed for the position of Helene's husband had made a pledge to cooperate with each other in the event of her being stolen.
    Conflict could no longer be avoided, and a war against the Greek alliance fell upon Troy.
    It was the beginning of what would later be called the Trojan War.

    Pure, innocent and gallant; all are human aspects that are perceived in a positive way, but those alone make up for a bad disposition - or so his critics say.
    For better or worse, he is a straightforward person. As soon as he learned that Helene was enduring an unhappy married life, he hijacked her.
    Although instigated by the gods, that action in itself was righteous.

    Hektor knew that the actions of his younger brother Paris would bring about some tricky troubles, but he did not stop them.
    For he understood that, whatever the reasons may be, wars inconspicuously happen when they have to happen and that there is no room for compromise from the moment that both sides placed their pride at stake.

    In the Trojan War, Paris met an ending filled with regret and disappointment.
    Still, one could say that he is earnest in a sense, as he faces challenges with simple honesty without sulking upon being summoned.

    However, one must be cautious of the Apollon that came together with him.
    He thinks of Paris' preservation as foremost and does not takes anything else into consideration - not even the Master.

    Gareth
    Gareth

    One of King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table. The Seventh Seat of the Round Table.
    A young knight whose brothers are Gawain, Gaheris and Agravain.
    One of the children born between King Lot and Morgan le Fay.
    The Knight of Treachery Mordred is her younger brother by a different father.

    Also goes by the name Gaheriez.
    Or maybe, Beaumains (beautiful hands).

    Gareth was the latest addition to the Round Table, a knight lacking in experience.
    She revered all the senior members of the Knights of the Round Table.
    In particular, she was very attached to Sir Lancelot and often followed him around.
    While undergoing much training as an apprentice knight, and even after becoming a formal member of the Knights of the Round Table, she would not serve together with the her eldest brother Gawain like Gaheris, but instead chose a standing that was somewhat closer to Lancelot's attendant.

    Gareth was cherished by many as an existence full of potential. Let alone her brothers, even the other Knights of the Round Table acknowledged her as "someone who will someday become the most excellent of knights", "eventually become a true knight, comparable to all her brothers".

    When Agravain attempted to fabricate a scene to indict the infidelity between Queen Guinevere and Sir Lancelot, he pressured for her cooperation.
    Gareth replied that she "could not say anything weird about Sir Lancelot, who invested me as a knight" and then left the scene while lost in sadness

    Afterwards, although he was able catch Lancelot in the act of infidelity, Agravain ended up losing his life after having the tables turned on him. Gareth was ordered to stand witness of Guinevere's execution (who had been arrested for the crime), but she did while completely unarmed - after saying "please understand that I will not be going out of my own will". That led to further misfortune.

    While completely defenceless, Gareth had her skull smashed by Lancelot, who had came to rescue Guinevere.

    Many lost their lives in this series of events.
    Agravain, Gaheris and Gareth―――
    Who really knows of Sir Gawain's grief for having lost his siblings.
    And thus, the Round Table developed a crack​ and the glory of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table met its end.

    A tragic girl knight with a disposition of a courageous puppy.
    No matter what happens, she will not betray someone who she came to idolize.
    Even after death.
    Just as denoted by her past way of life.

    Prizing chivalry​, she believes in justice and abides to it.
    She holds pride in being a subordinate of the King of Knights, and even now feels that being chosen as a member of the Round Table was the greatest honor of her life.

    She also still revers Sir Lancelot.
    Even if, on that day when everything ended.
    Her own figure was not discerned by the eyes of the knight who proceeded to rescue Queen Guinevere.
    Or even, if he did perceive her, yet still killed her without hesitation.

    Bartholomew Roberts
    Bartholomew Roberts

    Bartholomew Roberts is a great pirate that led the greatest pirate fleet in the history of piracy.
    Contrary to the rough image related to the term pirate, he created extremely strict regulations and restrained betrayal and internal struggle.
    The large fleet that Bartholomew led continuously produced terrific military gains, but he died in battle during a conflict with the Navy.

    A smart and polished dandy. With a gentle demeanour, his handsomeness have caught the eyes of men and women alike since he was born.
    However, as expected of someone who aspired to become a pirate, his personality matches that of Blackbeard.
    Bartholomew often says "don't lump me together with Blackbeard", but that is only in regards to his appearance and speech; he is pretty much in agreement with Blackbeard's perception that "a pirate is someone who steals, steals, steals thoroughly, only to have everything stolen away from him in the end".

    It is not like Bartholomew wanted to become a pirate from the very beginning. He originally worked as a second mate in a ship named Princess, but one day it was captured by a pirate ship led by Captain Davies. Inevitably, he had to become a pirate himself.
    Still, maybe he had an inborn temperament as a pirate, he ended up being selected by the executive staff to succeed Captain Davies after his death. Surprisingly, not even six weeks have passed since the day he joined the crew.

    Bartholomew accomplished a gorgeous debut as a pirate, but one day he came across some trouble when the aide that he put in charge of house-sitting ended up stealing his ship and spoils and disappearing.
    In order to make sure that such a thing never happened again, he drafted a set of regulations. He then had his subordinates recite and swear to uphold them while holding a Bible.
    Supposedly, other than the equal division of booty, a list of banned things - such as a ban against drinking bouts after 8:00 PM (unfortunately, not many subordinates honestly upheld this) and a ban against gambling - and even a guarantee of insurance payment in case one was forced to retire due to injury sustained during piracy were clearly written in those regulations.
    In addition, although many among the crew opposed this, he would also release individuals who refused to become pirates after having their ships captured.

    Since he was a pirate, his fate was naturally a gruesome one.

    Upon receiving a surprise attack from a vessel named Swallow, Bartholomew attempted to rout his ship for a counter-attack, but he unluckily received a direct hit of a cannon ball in the throat during the enemy's volley firing.
    Upon seeing him suddenly collapse, his subordinates called up to him while saying "try fighting like a man, Captain", but he was already dead by then.
    After his death, the subordinates that instantly lost their will to fight surrendered. Most of them were executed by hanging as pirates (the musicians were acquitted, as they were just in charge of playing musical instruments and thus did not participate in actual piracy).

    It is unsure whatever his covered-eyes preferences went all the way back to his previous life, but his summoned self does nothing but speak about the charms of the covered-eyes.
    In case of a proper Master, it would be just right to simply turn aside his fast-talking from left to right.

    Chen Gong
    Chen Gong

    A military commander from the closing years of the Chinese Later Han period.
    An individual born in the Wuyang County, Dong Commandery, Yanzhou (by modern standards, that would be around the city of Liaocheng, Shandong province, Shenzian).
    He served under Cao Cao (who would later become a hegemon) and earned his trust, yet rebelled against him and looked up at Lu Bu (the accomplished villain of those turbulent times) as his lord, competing with Cao Cao for supremacy.
    After many defeats, he lost his life together with Lu Bu in the city of Pizhou.
    In the end, what awaited him was Cao Cao's personal interrogation and execution.

    A sadist that leaves even Lu Bu amazed.
    He is aggressive despite appearing to have a scholarly temperament. A rational, iron-like person that suppresses fear with reason while on the battlefield, behaving in a dignified, detached manner.
    A gallant warrior, a cold-bloodedness strategist and a stubborn person that never yield his convictions.
    Although he can fight head-on, he will also employ the likes of betrayals and sneak-attacks as reasonable measures if it is for the sake of victory.

    Despite impartially agreeing with the opponents' opinions・principles, he will flatly reject them by saying "but I do not think so" and thoroughly crush them. That figure, which does not care about people's feelings, would probably even look like a ruthless machine.

    Although he has talent as a strategist, he was actually an expert of the bow to begin with. However, it is impossible to rule over an entire country by merely being skilful with a bow.
    "An individual's military might only amounts to so much", he abandoned the bow and studied military tactics while saying such a thing.
    Such a hasty conclusion was smashed to pieces when he met Lu Bu, who could aspire to obtain supremacy over the nation with just "individual might". Thereafter, he began to work together with Lu Bu.

    In the world of "Fate", Chen Gong (whose true origins are unknown) is a descendant of China's oldest civilization - the Xia dynasty - and an engineer who inherited its literature and technology.
    Be that as it may, the weapons of the Xia dysnasty were not something that mere humans could handle.
    They were all things that could not be handled unless one had mystery (in order words, magic circuits) within oneself. Chen Gong himself ridiculed them as "such a futile knowledge" at first, but upon seeing Lu Bu and his lightning energy-overflowing body, he thought "oh, I found a qualified individual" and began to devote himself to the development of Chinese gadgets.
    Supposedly, since Lu Bu felt tormented by the vigor that he himself could not control, the fact that all the weapons prepared by Chen Gong not only suited him well but also appeased his fury caused him to rely on Chen Gong even more.

    His wish for the Holy Grail is complicated; although there is the ambition that he had given up on in his previous life... "to rule the country and create an ideal (as far as he is concerned) society"...., there is also the joy as a strategist... "to work for the ideal (as far as he is concerned) lord to the bitter end".

    A realist that dislikes futile efforts despite his aggressive personality; so as far as Chen Gong is concerned, modern society is an answer of sorts. In his eyes, it goes like "Oh, so it became like this. In that case, isn't this acceptable? If the number of people dying pointlessly is less than half of the whole, you could say that society is working smoothly, right?"

    As such, upon becoming a Servant, his wish as a strategist is being prioritized somewhat and he is placing great expectations on the Master as his employer.
    "Please, be an employer that brilliantly expends the 'mechanisms' that my humble self have hoped, but once gave up on".

    "As a strategist, it is only natural to be skilled at employing others. Only that in my case, the benefit of "making use of others feels simply too good" is also mixed in"

    Strategist’s Advice: B++
    The "++" is derived from the fact that he managed to make Lu Bu obey him.
    Does this mean that, in a critical moment, he can provide "an advice to his lord" that surpasses even Kongming?

    Strategist's Aspiration: A
    Chen Gong; the man who ran across the battlefield together with the hero of betrayal - Lu Bu.
    While Chen Gong was coldhearted・cool-headed, even he possessed the conviction, passion of a warrior.
    The oath of the soul to "die for the sake of this lord", "to die together this lord". In other words, the long-cherished wish of a strategist.
    A "Hero Creation" performed only on Servants of the Berserker Class.

    What is left after that is just a skirmish between minor troops.
    Now let us put things back to how they were―――
    "

    such is Chen Gong's stock phrase, which he refreshingly recites​ while looking down on the enemy camp that was scattered by the explosion of a military commander.

    In order to mitigate this exceedingly terrible (bad) impression, he employs the illusionary arts of a magecraft scroll from the Ancient Xia dynasty to display the scene of "for some reason, the enemy camp exploded when Chen Gong fired some amazing arrow", camouflaging the truth.

    Charlotte Corday
    Charlotte Corday

    Charlotte Corday is the woman who assassinated the leader of the Jacobin faction, Jean-Paul Marat, during the French Revolution.
    She gained fame due her lovely features and dexterity to single-handedly execute an assassination plan, being extolled as the "l'ange de l'assassinat" (angel of assassination).

    A lively, precocious, dynamic and yet modest young girl.
    Having reading as a hobby, if nothing had happened she would probably have spent her entire life in a convent without leaving her name on history.
    However, her fate changed when the convent was closed due the after-effects of the French Revolution.

    The motives that led her to decide to assassinate Jean-Paul Marat are extremely complex; but to put them in simple terms, one could say that it was "to save all people".
    She deemed Marat - who incited the masses and continued to shed blood of the sake of the Revolution - as the main culprit behind the chaotic France of those times.

    A reckless plan that would never succeed under normal circumstances. However, all sorts of conditions - such as coincidence・good fortune・contempt - worked to her favor and she was able to accomplish the assassination in the end.

    Although later investigations attempted to discern if there were any collaborators to her assassination plan, it was ultimately concluded that it was merely to the extent of a certain individual being deceived by her words to send a letter of introduction and that Charlotte Corday almost certainly planned the assassination by herself.

    She was executed with the guillotine, and Charles-Henri Sanson was the one in charge at the time.
    Sanson spent only two hours with her (the time it took to walk from her prison to the gallows​), but he would praise her in his memoirs saying that "she maintained a brave and gentle attitude until the end, without ever displaying fear or anger".

    As far as she is concerned, her second life begins with disappointment and frustration. That is because, according to her conclusions derived from the knowledge installed in her, the assassination that she carried out was not enough to change history nor it could be said that the world became a better place thanks to it.
    Consequentially, she has a slight tendency for self-mockery and self-depreciation​ during the time right after her summoning.
    She will slowly regain her inherent cheerfulness as she fights together with the Master.

    In the Greek Lostbelt, she ended up being summoned by Odysseus and involuntarily performed as a spy, but was released thanks to the eradication of the Zeus nanomachines.
    She carried out Odysseus assassination all by herself.
    She harboured faint feelings of love towards the Master, and despite managing to barely conceal them, she ended up expressing them in spite of herself after losing her memories about deciding to keep them a secret when she was just on the verge of disappearing.
    That love disappeared with the sunset, without ever growing ripe.

    Salome
    Salome

    Salome is the stepdaughter of Herod Antipas, one of the four feudal lords that ruled over Galilee and Perea during the generation of the Messiah (since Israel was under Roman dominion at the time, it would be more accurate to call them proxy sovereigns).
    Having fell in love with John the Baptist, she took advantage of the fact that her stepfather, King Herod, was in love with her in order to obtain John. She seduced King Herod (who would not allow the Baptist to leave prison no matter what) and had him decapitate John―――
    Thus she obtained the head of her beloved.

    An insane girl, who boils with love and kisses with bloodstained lips.
    A dancer clad in thin veils that ended up fascinating even her stepfather, the king.
    Cruel and brutal, she gets excited by the blood of those she love.
    While she was an innocent young girl in her previous life, it appears that she have manifested in a state in which her mentality was fixed at the instant of her last moments, when she went completely mad due yearning for love.

    The love that should have been devoted only to John the Baptist was broadened and made to overflow generously from her Servant self. In other words, she ends up giving her heart even to those hostile to her.
    If properly controlled, she will probably operate as a powerful Berserker, but Salome's mentality becomes more creaked and broken as she kills those she gave her heart to.

    "The head of John the Baptist was handed over to a young girl, carried while placed in a tray" - such situation would bestow a vivid inspiration to artists of posterity, and many religious paintings were drawn about it from the Renaissance to the Baroque periods.
    Throughout these artworks, many speculations were made about Salome's motives.

    In the novel "Herodias (French for Herodea), written in the 19th century by the French author Gustave Flaubert, the fear of the ambitious Herodea towards John's influence was given as the reason behind the incident, with Salome being depicted in the role of a mere accomplice.
    But afterwards, the Salome play of Oscar Wilde (later turned into an opera by Richard Strauss ) would be announced in 1893, allowing the dreadful image of Salome as a woman that was deeply in love with Yokhanan (John) and eventually demanded his head to take root.

    She properly understands the relationship between Master and Servant.
    Still, as their bond deepen and they become more intimate, she is likely to sooner or later desire to "possess" the Master.

    She will demand it.
    His head.

    Due knowing that it will be impossible to maintain herself in this world if the Master loses his life, she will not proactively try to cut his head. But if a perfect opportunity were to present itself...
    How long would she be able to resist...

    Miyamoto Musashi (Swimsuit)
    Miyamoto Musashi (Berseker)

    "Miyamoto Musashi? You fool, she starved to death!
    The one found here is a single woman who loves the blue sky, an American no matter how you look at her! Yay!
    With the ability to pick and choose between the blades in her two hands, a bouncer that fully enjoys summer!
    For now, just call me Miyamoto Iori
    !"

    Changing her Japanese swords for Sport chanbara, and later for yet another weapon, the Berserker of Niten Ichi-ryuu makes an unannounced visit!
    As you can see, a famous master swordswoman has fallen to the evil influence called swimsuit. "I mean, it is summer after all".

    Cheerful and openhearted, a swordswoman that is both dignified and vibrant.
    In other words, the same old Musashi.
    That being said, the charm of summer has also permeated into Musashi and she is now even more hedonist than usual.
    She loves fun things. She loves jet ski. And she loves fighting strong enemies!
    "This time I will spend the life of wilful bouncer while in the Western swordsman looks that I had admired for quite some time!"
    or so she says with a flower-like smile, but...?

    Her weapon during peaceful times is a Sport chanbara-shaped sham of a sword, but it hurts a lot for some reason.
    In her third Ascension, she brings out a large sword. She has named it "damaged sword of obedience and disobedience​ - Musashi-koshirae(1)"
    She had chosen the "Oar Wooden Sword" that the Musashi of Pan-Human History supposedly employed as a motif, but things did not went well as expected and it ended up getting damaged right after it was finished. But thinking that it still got some use even then, she began employing the damaged blade as a daisho.

    Musashi was wandering aimlessly on North America.
    After obtaining a Holy Grail by chance on the western parts of Grand Canyon, she decided to try and cook some rice with said Grail. Upon eating it, her Saint Graph split due a bad compatibility​ between the Holy Grail and the Buddha-nature that she had cultivated through training. One of the halves became a heavenly demon and started to go on a rampage independently.
    Musashi attempted to walk away while pretending to not have seen the heavenly demon, but she felt responsible at the thought of the demonic Musashi causing a great disaster if left to her own devices... so she sought advice from a certain shady magus (Merlin) that she had met before.

    ...but Musashi-chan will not speak of such circumstances.
    She thinks that "I just have to pretend that the 'mysterious heavenly demon' that is guiding the West to collapse is not me and skilfully carry on in order to bring the situation to a close."
    The reason why she is pretending to know nothing of her blunder is simply because "I thought Master would get mad at me. ehehe".
    She does not think that she did something bad, nor is trying to save her reputation.

    Introduced in Las Vegas as a mere Swimsuit Swordmaster.
    After fighting Hokusai, she began naming herself "Miyamoto Iori". Although she is playing innocent by stubbornly saying that "I am not Musashi", this also includes the implication of "my current self cannot be called Musashi. I'm so half-assed, to the extent of being in the same level as my apprentice, Iori-kun".

    A skill that is similar to Fifth Force, yet not quite. Looking at it closely, "force" has turned into "peak".
    A free sword that can change into single-wielding even while dual-wielding.

    Heavenly Demon Roaring Eye: EX
    The rampaged version of Heavenly Eye.
    By making her Saint Graph go into a rampage until the brink of collapse, an explosive attack power is acquired. At that occasion, the Heavenly Eye that was sharpened to the utmost limits sees through all the defensive measures of the enemy and pulverises them.
    Since this sees through all defensive measures that enter her field of vision, it has an effect not only on an individual but also on an entire enemy camp.

    Since there are no living witnesses, only Musashi knows what sort of thing this is.
    A peculiar Saint Graph that thoroughly insults, disparages and crushingly defeats swordsmen that sunk into heresy, black arts and heavenly demons.
    Also known as anti-swordsmen, anti-swordmasters great bounded-field・Ganryuu-jima.
    Due becoming a Berserker, this is no longer a clever, heretic killing method in which she "converts an entire island into an anti-swordsmen fortress, activates a trap after luring the opponent to its centre and ultimately crushes the opponent alongside the island".
    Instead, it became a tenshou sword that launches large amounts of sea water by means of five splendid sword drafts (of the earth, water, fire, wind and void elements), becoming cascades that surround the enemy. The enemy is then bisected alongside said cascades.



    (1) trivia: supposedly, there is an actual Japanese sword with that name in real life


    Osakabe-hime (swimsuit)
    Osakabe-hime (Archer)

    After less than two years of unswerving determination, she has finally accomplished it.
    Swimsuit installing by means of Saint Graph transformation, complete!
    Osakabe-hime, who became a little more active due undergoing a Class Change from Assassin to Archer, makes an unannounced visit!
    To be specific, she got really into survival games and began carrying out battle royals every day and night.

    On a whimsical moment, Okkie(1) worried: "is it really fine for the princess' (me) life to go on like this?"
    A Master is like a once-in-a-lifetime encounter, so it might be better to muster some courage and get into outdoor-mode at least once in her life. In addition, it might also give her some ideas for a manga.
    Thus she resolved herself.
    After receiving the '70% scolding-20% flaming-10% encouragement' of her friend Kiyo-hie(2), she finally transformed into a Swimsuit Servant through her own strength.
    Incidentally, by accomplishing the boxing diet arranged by a certain holy woman that was a pioneer Swimsuit Servant, her weight decreased a little.
    All there is left is to withstand the rebound in preparation for the autumn season.

    Her origami soldiers amount a total of 1,000 units.
    Since the hermit crab-tanks and flying fish-fighter aircrafts also count as one unit each, they may seem somewhat thin in numbers, but their combat prowess has been certified.
    In real combat, quantity is more important than quality; this de facto rush of surging waves has no equals.
    ...or rather, it is on a level that is no longer a laughing matter.

    At any rate, the miniature-sized soldiers fly on the air in fighter aircrafts and dash across the land in tanks, preparing to attack with bombs and cannonballs.
    Furthermore, not only their numbers are great, but they fluttering evade physical attacks due being made of paper.

    Still, even with their numbers, they are still weak against fire due being made of paper.

    While she is somewhat more active due putting on a swimsuit, her true nature has not changed much.
    In other words, rather than working up a sweat, she prefers to have fun playing. Someone who becomes immersed in events through and through; that is Osakabe-hime.

    Although her military equipments are all toys and the like (as indicated by their colors), since the bullets are a mass of magical power, their destructive power is greater than genuine articles of inferior quality.

    Incidentally, her attitude towards the Master is also the same as when she is an Assassin. A maiden's heart is complicated and mysterious, like groping in the dark, so there is no need to have mercy on her.

    Carmilla (Swimsuit)
    Carmilla (Rider)

    An impeccable, gorgeous swimsuit celebrity of high society.
    Despite emanating a scent of danger, one cannot help but be captivated by her fascinating look.
    However--- upon waking up from this midsummer night's dream, you will probably notice that the precious treasure that should have been safely locked away disappeared without a trace.

    Yes, this woman is no mere celebrity.
    No mere female vampire.

    She is without a doubt the beautiful shadow that recently began to disturb the nights of Vegas.
    The mysterious female phantom thief, "Mistress C"!

    To tell the truth, she was always looking at her "other self" while bitting her finger.
    Halloween? Hero? Mecha? And to top it off, an oriental gothic!?
    Why is she the only one with so many patterns?
    "At any rate, I can't let her increase the lead any further---!"
    When such frustration popped, her Saint Graph transformed into the deeply wished Swimsuit Servant.

    Feeling relieved after wearing a swimsuit, she obtained an increased degree of "adult composure" - in other words, the sense of a celebrity.
    Becoming generous, she followed an impulse to establish her position as "Elizabeth, the wonderful female feudal lord" and came up with a certain plan.
    To reconstruct the Csejte Castle.
    "It is preposterous to use it as the amp of a live show, like that little girl does. That 'Prison Castle Csejte' is both naive and mistaken.
    It needs to be more gorgeous, more suited for torture; I need to complete the construction of a "Torture Castle Csejte" so to speak.
    If I manage that, the difference of rank between me and that little girl will surely become even more apparent...!
    "

    But then, budget becomes an issue.
    It was necessary for her to think of a budget accumulation method that a celebrity overflowing with charm could perform.
    To earn money through arduous work or business transactions is not elegant. Nor something a celebrity would do.
    For her, it was more suitable to collect the necessary jewels, high class paintings, necklaces... "beautiful treasures" such as these... and obtain fortune as a result.
    In short, such method was?

    ...well, it is as you see.

    A wicked woman of a different kind than usual.

    Femme Fatale (False): A
    A skill that makes possible for her to quite naturally slip into the vicinity of her target.
    This is something that indicates the proficiency of the preliminary investigations necessary for the theft, and a composite skill that includes analysis, Secret Intelligence, Pheromone, disguise techniques, covert operations and others.

    She possesses the bewitchingness to make the person that she approached in order to steal from naturally fall in love with her (regardless of said person being of the opposite or same sex).
    However, that is an illusion which exists only during the time it takes for the phantom thief to steal her trophy.
    Even if said love were to seem irreplaceable, of good compatibility and comfortable, it will not be fulfilled.
    No matter how much her partner may wish it so.
    And even if--- she herself were to wish it too.

    Advance Notice of the Phantom Thief: A
    An audacious message card sent by the mysterious female phantom thief, "Mistress C", before the crime.
    It has the picture of a patterned dog drawn on it.
    It has a note like "On (a specific day and time), I will be taking the xxx" written on it, and she never fails to fulfil that promise.

    Supposedly, there is a peculiar ecstasy... or rather, a catharsis behind the deed of delivering this advance notice. Encouraged by her initial success, she began to throw cards at every opportunity while in middle of a conversation, so one must be careful.

    Mistress C: EX
    A skill for transforming the swimsuit celebrity, Mrs. Carmilla, intro the mysterious female phantom thief, "Mistress C".

    Mistress C is a hyper lady who is well versed with all sorts of high-tech devices, possesses an overwhelmingly nice body, is endowed with driving techniques to easily handle a red supercar and is a little bit competent in torture.
    She does not like to kill people during her thefts.
    That is not because she is a righteous phantom thief, but because carelessly hearing their dying wails can cause her to become entranced and lose concentration in her work.

    Simply put, as far as Swimsuit Carmilla is concerned, this car itself is a "maiden of steel".
    "Testarossa" means "red head" in Italian, and there is no relation to the real-life supercar.
    Probably.

    To begin with, since her torture devices are "illusions" and not "possessions", their meaning does not change even if their shape does.
    This is merely her making an small arrangement on the shape of the illusions that she can freely handle.
    "Something that makes the faces of the maidens she likes warp in fear", "something that makes people scream", "once you ride (get into) it, it becomes impossible to escape"... one could say that these aspects of it remain the same.

    O young women; no matter how much the beautiful, celebrity lady invites you for a party, you must not enter in this car carelessly.
    For you will have your heart and body stolen away, becoming unable to ever getting out---

    Katsushika Hokusai (Swimsuit)
    Katsushika Hokusai (Saber)

    The child is father to the man, right!
    In her childhood, "Katsushika Ooi" was super crazy about yomihon and eventually began to admire the xiannu!

    "An extraordinary female ukiyoe artist, absurdly strong and with a sharp mind!
    In addition, there will be nothing left to complain if she is also wearing a glamorous kimono!
    "

    ...aren't you exaggerating too much, Miss O-Ei? (her father is also here)

    A condition in which Ooi grew up while retaining the dreams of her girlish age: "rather than an ukiyoe artists, I want to become a 'xiannu'".
    Having experienced neither setbacks as a painter nor the divorce from after she got married, she has a foolhardy confidence in her drawing skills and is acting conceited by saying things like "I'll eventually become better than my father, Hokusai!"

    Due being wholehearted about surpassing her father, she assumed his professional name on her own accord and started introducing herself as "Katsushika Ooi", but she is still a novice. That being said, she conceals something that the adult Ooi does not have.

    Due taking Hokusai's tall story about their lineage being related to a samurai vassal of House Yoshinaka from Chuushingura seriously, she completely began to put on airs as a "swordmaster". Furthermore, this was also the result of reading a large amount of cheap literature by Kyokutei Bakin and other reference materials such as the Chinese Water Margin.

    Although there are legends of Katsushika Hokusai being the great grandchild of Kobayashi Heihachirou (the swordmaster vassal to the Yoshinaka House that was killed during the raid of Chuushingura), their authencity is unknown. In the event that they are true, Ooi would be his great-great grandchild.

    Instead of the other disciples, she wanted to inherit herself the artistic name of her father, Katsushika Hokusai, and raise its fame even further.
    And also, she wished for her father to watch over her success.
    Despite understanding that her techniques are immature, she brags to not lose in terms of inventiveness. Brimming with curiosity, she says that the input is more convenient for Servants than the output.
    Although still the same mannish, true Tokyoite Ooi as always, there are times when she inadvertently shows a naive reaction and becomes bashful.

    Arturia (Lancer-Swimsuit)
    Arturia Pendragon (Ruler)

    Swimsuit Lion King.
    This name has three meaning included to it.
    First, the manager of Casino Camelot, which stands at the top of the casino group that rules the gorgeous Las Vegas.
    Second, the sponsor who watches over the Seven Matches of Swimsuit Swordmasters, also known as Contest(1) of Swimsuit Swordmasters, and its cause--- in other words, the Swimsuit Swordmasters that compete with each other with their swords and swimsuits as a single summer memory.
    Third, the Lancer Arturia who changed her guise to a summer dress.

    Please be careful, for she is a completely different person from the "Lion King" that appeared in the Sixth Singularity.

    Basically, the same individual as her Lancer self. However, since she is unconsciously thinking that it should be fine to have some fun as this is her day off, her behaviour in places unrelated to the Seven Matches of Swimsuit Swordmasters is somewhat lenient.

    Incidentally, since she is no longer a Lancer, her favourite horse Dun Stallion is not by her side.
    It is not like that white horse has disappeared, and it can be seen resting in the barn area of Chaldea.
    What about the prank necessary to keep it in this world? Nobody knows.

    Swimsuit Lion King, Arturia Ruler intends to earnestly enjoy her vacation.
    This is unusual.
    After all, she is basically a Heroic Spirit who is constantly battle-ready, without days off, and single-mindedly continues to fight diligently.
    Still, this is...
    Thanks to a prank-like gambit by the mysterious young man, Merlin, she ended up becoming the Swimsuit Lion King that challenges a vacation with all her might.

    The Master must be mindful.
    She is serious.
    As she intends to enjoy her vacation to the utmost, while retaining her usual seriousness, she will not cut any corners.
    Very well---
    Completely devote yourself! And go play!

    Meltlilith (Swimsuit)
    Mysterious Alterego, Lambda

    A mysterious Servant that appeared in Las Vegas.
    While her true identity is simply too obscure, she flaunts to be a first-class ballet dancer, a goddess that governs over fine arts and, at this time, also have talent even for figure skating - a Servant of water and penguins.
    The owner of one Vegas' five great casinos - the Suitengyu.
    Said casino mainly works with slot machines, but rumours go that its wind speed... rotation is fast, generally speaking.
    The whereabouts of the customers (Servants) that became penniless and were out in the cold is completely unknown, and rumours say that they were taken captive by Lambda and turned into experience points.

    A prima donna on water, and an famous(1) figure skater. She introduces herself as a queen of the sea that dispatches various waves.

    Belligerent and merciless. A queen-disposition that also possesses sadistic tastes.
    Having a liking for structural beauty, she is a fastidious person who does not tolerate ugly things.
    Her pride is great, as she thinks of herself as a perfect existence and brags that she alone can obtain everything.
    ...this would be her usual self, but she has sealed (a little) of her sadistic tastes in order to have the pleasure of exciting the audience as a professional figure skater.
    Be as it may, her core of "holding her own beauty as absolute, by means of her own standards" has not changed.
    No matter how beautiful and popular the other Swimsuit Swordmasters may be, she simply elegantly laughs while saying "Huh, I see. Still, I am the most beautiful, right?"

    She hides her identity due being a star. She does not reveal her private life out of kindliness for her enthusiastic fans; a reward of sorts.
    Claims to be a mysterious Alterego, and not Meltlilith.
    Although, she usually does not pretend to be a someone famous(1) due being in the presence of her sisters (really?)
    In this Saint Graph that she introduces herself as the performer・Lambda, her professional awareness is strong.

    Furthermore, she passes herself off as having turned into a more "jealous" person due an influence from Leviathan, but since her attachment・affection towards "the only thing that she loves" was as heavy as a black hole to begin with, she was already jealous by nature.

    Leviathan was giant magic beast that lives in the sea, recorded in the Book of Job from the Old Testament.
    God created two giant magic beasts for the purpose of becoming nourishment for mankind after the Last Judgment.
    Those are the magic beast that lives on land, Behemoth, and the magic beast that lives on the sea, Leviathan (Livyatan).

    Leviathan and Behemoth are regarded as a couple, with Behemoth being a gentle herbivore, while Leviathan is a ferocious beast.

    All sources portray Leviathan as female, and it would later be drawn after the image of a giant snake.
    Since before the Middle Ages, the sea was a place where death was always present as far as humans were concerned. It came to be regarded as a devil due its ferocity and, in addition, its existence was disseminated as an archdemon that symbolised one of the "Seven Deadly Sins" - "Jealousy".
    In demonology, Leviathan is ranked right after Satan and Beelzebub and is endowed with authority over the navy of hell as a grand admiral. In the Book of Job, it was described as so big that it created whirlpools and raging waves in the sea just by swimming.

    "But no matter how ferocious, a young woman with divinity is a goddess.☆"

    Okita Souji (Swimsuit)
    Okita Souji (Assassin)

    Look at that swimsuit figure soaring across the summer sky!
    That light of avidya(1) that sparkles at the daybreak, that surely is, is... who?

    Her name is "Okita J. Souji".
    A mysterious female Shinsengumi that employs a galaxian countryside swordsmanship of unknown details called Jet Tennen Rishin-ryuu.
    Soaring in the sky with the jetpack installed in her back, it seems that she is hunting down the rebellious ronin that are running rampant in Vegas today as well.

    "Ms. Swimsuit Okit..., or rather, Ms. Okita J Souji is in perfect form! My body is also a bombshell, right?
    Eh? '
    What about the jet?' Don't say that..."

    "Jetpack User's Manual: Regular Form"
    A marvellous gadget that is thoroughly​ equipped (to the point of being excessive) with a mysterious universal technology. Thanks to the super-acceleration, super-braking from an ether jet propulsion system, it accomplishes galaxy-levels of space supremacy. As fixed armaments, it possesses the Kiku-ichimonji Blade, photon vulcans, photon missiles, etc.

    "Jetpack User's Manual: Second Form"
    A special equipment for covert operations that fully displays her original performance. It is equipped with various functions that are suited for assassination, such as a "stealth mode" and a "Miburou instant-kill style".
    The haori-like vestment is actually a brand new costume that combines the sundriness of a jersey with the covertness of a a striped black haori - a jersey-haori so to say. Its conversion armament is a Kiku-ichimonji Blade, Version β.

    Even after reading all this, you still don't understand what exactly is being explained here? Don't worry. I don't understand either.

    Incidentally, it seems that there is also a lovely, unrivalled 'Ms. Summer Swimsuit Okita-mode' that completely conceals this equipment.
    She uses this mode when going out to play.

    The enigma-style of this summer topic; a concept-lost in which the swimsuit-wearing Ms. Okita gets a jetpack.

    Personality-wise, she is no different from her usual self. However, her Class changed from Saber to Assassin.
    Since she originally had a high aptitude for the Assassin Class, in terms of performance, it seems that she is displaying a combat strength in no way inferior to the Saber Class.

    Maybe this is in someway related to changing to the Assassin Class, but in the covert operation-purpose second form, her aspects as a no-nonsense man-slayer becomes strongly apparent. A condition similar to her man-slayer self, back when she would indiscriminately slaughter those without resolve while being feared and scorned by her opponents.

    Let me explain! (narration: guest appearance by Mr. R) While Ms. Okita had her dearest wish of being implemented as "Ms. Swimsuit Okita" fulfilled, she suffered a galaxian collision accident with Heroine XX just as she was running on the hallway in euphoria. Sadly, Ms. Okita ended up dying... (did not in fact died)

    "This is bad!? I got in contact with a primitive native, and to top it off killed her... At this rate, it will reflect badly on my bonus assessment!!"

    As she became flustered while holding this wrong assumption, Heroine XX installed a life-support system (jetpack) irresponsibly put together with the leftover parts she had at hand, giving birth to this mysterious female Shinsengumi as a result. As a matter of fact, Okita had just lost consciousness. A Shinsengumi soldier of the future that was revived after incorporating universal technology due to Ms. XX misunderstanding.

    Not only her Weak Constitution skill was temporarily removed thanks to the life-support system, but she also obtained an overly healthy body due to this equipment theoretical uptime limit of 800 years. Yet, Ms Okita became convinced that she only had 3 days left to live due a misunderstanding.

    For her, who was once wrapped in the warm light of the veranda and ephemerally disappeared in the waves of the age on that day, this figure that freely soars across the blue sky might be like an irreplaceable summer dream.

    Of course, the dimensional disturbances caused by XX are a charm that exists only during summer, so everything will turn back to how it was before once the summer ends.
    Isn't that great, Ms. Okita

    Sima Yi (Reines)
    Sima Yi

    A warrior and politician described in the Records of the Three Kingdoms.
    A victor of the Three Kingdoms period who received the posthumous title of "Emperor Xuan" after death.

    ...that being said, just like the strategist that was his bitter rival, he has taken a certain magus girl as his vessel.
    "Well, as far as operating in the modern age is concerned, it is indeed more logical to yield one's consciousness to the vessel.
    But don't you people rely in logic a little too much?
    "

    Reines (the girl who became his vessel) is the proper sovereign (Lord) of the El-Melloi faction, one of the 12 houses that administer the Magic Association.
    Actually, she was supposed to take over as a sovereign (Lord), but due her age, the state of the power struggle - and also Reines' own curiosity - that position was handed over to Lord El-Melloi II while she pretended to be some sort of grey eminence.

    Upon turning into a Pseudo-Servant, Sima Yi entrusted operations on the modern world to the vessel just like Kongming did. However, it seems like he does not have the same farsighted pragmatism as Kongming, so he reveals himself from time to time.

    To be precise, it is "Formation of Turbulent Instant".
    The essence of the human called Sima Yi is not that of a strategist that employs cunning, clever schemes.
    Be it at war or in disputes for political power, he naturally prepares himself, naturally bides his time, wins as if a matter of course and then sullenly murmurs a poem that he doesn't even like.

    When the illusionary sun and full moon appear on the horizon, the opponent's strong point will be crushed and the weak point that he concealed will be exposed.
    This is a joker-slayer that can even "produce a weak point" so long enough conditions are met - such as "being an opponent that he already defeated once" or "has already gathered the opponent's data".

    Astraea (Luvia)
    Astraea

    The goddess of justice and the heavenly balance, Astraea, has chosen a suitable target for spiritual possession.
    Someone born to stand above others――
    She was approved under such concept.
    Having accepted the Authority called justice as her duty, she will not go on a rampage as if she had the right to do so.

    ...still, such virtues aside, she has a quirk of considering any rare, valuable things that she finds as objects that must be put under her protection in a preferential manner.
    In other words, the most elegant (hyena) in heavens.

    Her origins are found in one of the three Horae sisters.
    Although considered a daughter of Zeus and Themis, there are few accounts of her in mythology.
    There is the legend of how, as the gods departed one after the other from the vice-rampant Iron Age, she remained on earth to the very end and urged people towards justice. There are also the tales of the scales that she held later becoming the constellation of Libra, while she herself became Virgo. Truly very few.
    However, in posterity, she, her mother Themis and the Justitia of Roman mythology - which are regarded as the same as Astraea - were given a new name and meaning.
    In other words, Lady Justice.
    The goddess of justice. If you find an image of a goddess holding a sword and scales before a courthouse or a law office, it represents them.

    Originally she possessed an inflexible disposition, with strong aspects as a function, but she now seeks to guide people herself thanks to the influence of the girl who became her vessel.
    For that same reason, she is excessively fixated on hand-to-hand combat. Despite holding a sword and scale in those hands, she will throw them aside at the critical moment - barehanded grappling (pro wrestling) is her justice.
    It is quite troubling, or maybe inevitable due the chosen vessel, the peerlessly tenacious Astraea matched herself to such a style, as a divine spirit possessing judgement functions, and ended up attaining foremost performance as a Servant in terms of pure grappling.

    "The justice of the stars!
    In other words a backdrop!
    "

    Since she was a personification of human justice to begin with, she will spare no services to the restoration of the anthropic principle.
    If her Master is inexperienced, then she will become even more inspired to guide him.
    At the same time, due in part to the personality of the possessed girl, her pointing out towards the Master's conduct is strict.
    If she feels that his conduct is indecent, she will probably show no hesitation in applying discipline (which will be something extremely physical that includes a dropkick).
    One should not be negligent towards his training if he want to walk together with her.

    A skill in which the scales that symbolize Astraea dwells in her body and deploys an absolute defence against those who ought to be judged.
    However, due the inclinations of the possessed human, it was revised into a skill suited for hand-to-hand combat. In other words, a pro wrestler does not fall.

    Gray
    Gray

    A girl who inherited the secret arts of a certain cemetery.
    Despite not being used with the common customs, she restlessly works at the Mage's Association as Lord El-Melloi II's private pupil.

    Only a select few know about the secret hidden beneath her hood, including El-Melloi II and the queer "talking box" called Add.

    Fundamentally shy and introverted.
    Due being raised in the countryside, she is not used to the big city and has the habit of watching over things from afar.
    That being said, her core is gentle and persevering and, due an unexpected amiable disposition, she probably can adapt herself to most environments given enough time.
    ...however, that is only if nobody mentions her face.
    She forms a good duo with the candid, sarcastic Add.

    A vessel for the king that a certain family attempted to create.
    That flesh is a faithful reproduction of a hero from ancient times, displaying a performance improper for modern humans.
    However, Gray herself still cannot accept her own face, which is the result of a sudden mutation that occurred when she was a child.
    As a result, she built a strong relationship of mutual trust with El-Melloi II, who took her away from her hometown and demonstrates a slight evasiveness towards that face.

    Ganesha (Jinako)
    Jinako Karigiri

    An elephant-head stone statue (as you can see).
    One can feel a divinity from it (for some reason).

    There is nothing else to be said about it―――
    At least for now.

    A Pseudo-Servant that has a divine spirit dwell into a human vessel... or so it is believed, but that are many puzzles regarding how it came into existence.
    To be honest, there are bugs in many details about it.
    The name column of this Saint Graph seems to display the name of the human wizard who supposedly became the vessel, but for some reason a conceptual mojibake occurred and it is now in a condition that nobody can read it.
    Thus, the Chaldea personnel (the Master included) call her by her self-styled "Miss Ganesha".
    It is uncertain whether the Hindu divine spirit Ganesha is really inside.

    Every so often, those who seem to have a connection with the vessel girl would say her name by chance, but that only occurs unconsciously and other people cannot perceive that name as something meaningful.

    Given how she has manifested in an Extra Class, one can surmise that a certain superior AI somehow had a hand in the formation of this Servant... but the truth is lost in darkness, or maybe in the far-side of the moon of another world.

    Lakshmi Bai
    Lakshmi Bai

    One of the most famous ringleaders of the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
    Despite her position as the Queen of the Jhansi Provincial Kingdom, she guided her people from the vanguards while riding a horse and brandishing a sword.
    The fight of the rebel army lead by her was so magnificent that even a British commanding officer left behind words of praise towards them, despite being enemies.

    Although she continued to boldly oppose the subjugation forces that were furnished with state-of-the-art equipment, she finally died in battle at the land of Gwalior, in June 1858.

    However, it has been said her bravery and wishes are still carved in the heart of people even today.

    After the King's death from disease, Lakshmi opened negotiations with the British for the survival of the Jhansi Kingdom.
    At the time, England was promoting the "doctrine of lapse" (which did not accept that adopted children could hold inheritance rights over a kingdom, and stated that countries without successors would be annexed to the British East India Company) that crushed Lakshmi's hopes to preserve the Kingdom by adopting a child.
    When special envoy from the Governor-General of India, Dalhousie, visited to declare that "from now on, this country will be annexed as a British territory", she did not shed tears but instead resolutely asserted that "I will not abdicate my Jhansi".

    Afterwards, Lakshmi became the flag-bearer​ of the insurrection movement within Jhansi.
    The Jhansi rebel army (which included many female soldiers that were encouraged by her) fought with such a dauntless courage that it left the British army astonished.
    In 1858, the Jhansi Castle finally surrendered to the subjugation army, but Lakshmi herself managed to escape somewhat. She rendezvoused with another rebel army and continued to resist in Gwalior.
    However, the momentum of the insurrection did not spread any further than that, allowing the British army to mount am all-out attack on Gwalior two months later.
    It has been said Lakshmi struggled at that skirmish as well, but received a gunshot wound while taking command of the frontlines and died in battle.

    Although a modern Servant, she has been endowed with divinity due a connection formed in the Indian Lostbelt.
    Due unique circumstances, an offshoot of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi came to dwell in her body, placing her half-way into a Pseudo-Servant condition.
    The fact that their names match has increased their magical affinity, supporting this condition.

    ...however, that is not accurate, and the one dwelling within her is in fact Lakshmi's elder sister, the goddess of misfortune and sorrow Alakshmi (there are also theories that she is the same being・a different aspect of Lakshmi).
    Supposedly, Alakshmi is the second wife of the demon Kali that appears in the Kali Yuga.

    What lies within her is actually a portion of that goddess, so she pretty much remains as the Queen Lakshmi personality-wise.
    The goddess-like components that this Lakshmi Bai has are just about "the engine (fuel) called divinity", "an impulse (from Alakshmi) that she occasionally feels from deepest part parts of her body" and "the blunder component (slight disposition as a dojikko) asa goddess of misfortune that ends up leaking out from time to time".

    However, since the sipahis departed for Delhi soon after, Lakshmi had to hire soldiers with her own private funds and protect Jhansi with whoever remained behind.

    William Tell (Wilhelm Tell) is a legendary individual that supposedly lived in the Uri province・central Switzerland, during the late 13th~early 14th Century.

    The anecdote of how he incurred the wrath of the local bailiff by not showing respect to his hat that hanged at the plaza and was then forced to shoot an apple placed on top of his son's head is exceedingly famous.

    Although widely famous as the character of a theatrical play, the people of Switzerland accept him as the hero that symbolizes their nation-founding movement.

    Just lie it is depicted in the theatrical play, he is a brave man who opposes tyrants that torment the citizens.
    However, he did not move out of a political・national sense of danger. if anything, his motive was a very personal one.
    As a result of doing what he was supposed to do as a hunter, as a father, as a single man, he became a warrior of justice.
    In other words, a true-to-life hero.
    Almost as if a personification of the concept of "my father, my hero", he possesses the boldness and composure to protect his family. Sometimes acting frivolous, sometimes considerate. Also, a scary man when angry.

    The story of William Tell is famous, but episode from after he saved his son is not well known.

    When the apple what shot with an arrow, the evil bailiff Gessler noticed that Tell had kept concealed one extra arrow other than the one he had set in his crossbow.
    As Tell hugged his son after saving him by piercing the apple with magnificent skill, Gessler inquired him about the meaning of the second arrow.
    In response, he declared that "if the first arrow had pierced something other than the apple, I intended to shoot you dead with this arrow". The raging Gessler ordered that Tell were to be arrested, but he somehow escaped as they were taking away.

    And then――― in order to escape from the bailiff's vengeance, in order to protect his son from the bailiff's wrath, Tell did what he was supposed to. He sniped Gessler as he rode a horse through a narrow valley path, piercing his heart.

    Peace returned to the city after the tyrant was no more, Tell was extolled as a hero and the Switzerland independence movement began gaining more and more momentum after this incident―――

    He started smoking recently.

    Aiming: EX
    A skill that denotes the ability to aim carefully with a projectile weapon.
    He can even shoot through an apple placed on top of his son's head.
    In addition to the high power of concentration to place even his breathing and pulse under complete control, by perfectly assimilating to the external environment so not be conscious of it, he obtains the result of "hitting naturally" instead than a simple "hit". Supposedly, this is something well understood in the mentality of Oriental archery.

    The name means apple shot.
    The legendary single arrow from a crossbow that magnificently shot through the apple placed on top of his son's head.
    This single arrow - fired while receiving the trust of a son towards his father - shall not miss by any means, piercing its objective "without fail".
    This anecdote sublimated into a Noble Phantasm can even interfere with the principle of causality, making evasion fundamentally impossible.

    His second Noble Phantasm, invoked only in the off chance that first Noble Phantasm - which "never misses" - miss.
    Derived from the anecdote of how Tell concealed a second arrow to shoot the evil bailiff Gessler, after thinking about the possibility of missing the apple over his son.
    This arrow is released simultaneously "in the occasion that the first arrow misses, in order to shot what comes next". In other words, a Noble Phantasm that conceptually overlaps with the first arrow as a multi-fold existence.
    So long the first arrow properly hits, it will not activate.

    "Everybody will die if I miss the apple above my son's head (first target), so in case of a miss I must shot the bailiff (second target) before he gives such an order"; just like this, this is something fired while deciding where to send it according to the situation.
    It is also possible to select the same object as the first target and, likewise, said object will be shot through without fail by means of interference with the principle of causality.
    However, prana consumption is intense, so reckless firing becomes complicated.
    ...although the condition of "the first arrow that always hits" missing does not happen so often.


    Arjuna Alter
    Arjuna Alter

    Abandoning humans, abandoning the land, he became a god and exhausted himself towards heavens.
    A god of destruction that reigns for the sake of a complete, perfect world.

    There is a hero in Hindu Mythology that is exceedingly close to a god, capable of ending everything and starting anew.
    The one who inherited this Authority of destruction from him was this Lostbelt Servant, Arjuna Alter.
    He almost lost his personality as compensation, but his ego as a natural-born hero somehow managed to prevent him from becoming a mechanical existence.

    After having severed his relationship with the gods and been summoned as a single Heroic Spirit, he recovers his original humanity as the Ascension progresses.

    At first, he conducts himself as a complete disciple of destruction that has almost completely lost his humanity. A compensation for being endowed with both divinity and the skill Anti-Evil as an Authority from the "one who brings about the end".

    However, Arjuna can barely recover his humanity after repeated Ascensions.
    In that case, the figure of a young man that is slightly more naive than Archer Arjuna will come into view.
    Archer Arjuna has an aspect that is constantly forcing himself to be a Servant worthy of his Master, but Arjuna Alter lacks that.

    While Archer Arjuna distinguishes the idealized image of a hero in his way of being, as a Lostbelt Servant, Arjuna Alter holds an aspiration towards Archer Arjuna as a proud hero.

    In the Indian Lostbelt, he reigned as a perfect god.
    Having his original personality painted out, he was on the verge of becoming a true deus ex machina... a concept that existed solely to maintain the reincarnation of the world.

    However, due the fact that the personality that governed Arjuna's egoism still remained (even if that was just to the point of wanting to win against someone, to remain excellent, to hate and get angry at something), he ironically ended up recovering his humanity.
    It was the wish... desire to 'win against Karna for sure this time' that managed to bring him back to being a human.
    In the Indian Lostbelt, he went on a rampage due to absorbing the Authorities of all the gods and turned into a concept that showed no tolerance to anything even a little imperfect. But upon being summoned as a Servant, the only thing that he does not forgive are the evils that oppose his Master, and one can also catch a glimpse of the gentle personality that the Arjurna of pan-human history originally has.

    He possesses both the Good and Evil alignments.

    Mad Enhancement: EX
    He resolved himself to server all evil in order to begin a new age.
    As a compensation, he has almost completely lost his humanity.
    As his Saint Graph changes, his Mad Enhancement also variates.

    Anti-Evil (Unique): EX
    A power exceedingly close to an Authority, bestowed by the one who brings about the end.
    He shoulders the duty of obliterating all evil.
    ...however, due him being too much upright, this end up applying to almost everyone, save for saints and innocent children.

    Clairvoyance (Transcendental): EX
    A Clairvoyance that surpassed the limits of a human being.
    Although in a manner different from Mystic Eyes, this could also be described as the ultimate form of sight.

    Torch of the Soul: EX
    The torch (personality) as a human being that Arjuna barely managed to protect.
    Its brilliance becomes increases as he becomes stronger together with the Master.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Rank:
    EX
    Type: Anti-World
    Range: 100
    Maximum Targets: Everything within range
    The other power bestowed to Arjuna, along with "Anti-Evil". Such is this Mahapralaya.
    In order to destroy evil, in order to put an end to the world, he is fated to brandish this sword at the end of everything.
    If this sword is brandished, everything will be extinguished.
    Mahapralaya denotes how the cosmos will be overturned at the occasion of Brahma's death... in other words, the saṃvartakalpa.

    Even the peerless Arjurna cannot brandish this sword and fully display its powers while in a condition of being summoned as a Servant. However, this is just like "Pashupata" in terms of generating a condensed・restricted destruction, so it seems that Arjuna himself does not feel uncomfortable regarding its use.


    Ashvatthaman
    Ashvatthaman

    The one who must rage and fight.
    The strongest warrior of the Brahmin, extolled as Karna's equal in the Mahabharata.
    The personification of indignation... that is Ashvatthaman.

    One of the heroes of the Mahabharata.
    His father is the Brahmin hero Drona.
    In that great war sung in the epic poem, he took the side of Duryodhana together with his father and unfolded a lurid conflict against the Pandavas along with Karna.

    Having gone into a fit of anger after all the major players of his own side died off, including Karna, he broke his oath as a warrior and carried out a night raid.
    It has been said that he slaughtered thousands of men at that occasion.

    At any rate, he does nothing but rage.
    He rages at absurdity, rages at sadness, rages at arrogance.
    Still, he has vowed not to hate them.
    He constantly wishes to remain as an existence that objects against the unreasonable world.

    He blows away all clever arguments and complacently blows away those he cannot agree with, no matter who it may be.
    In a Holy Grail War, he is the type of Servant whose compatibility with the Master becomes essential. If their compatibility is bad, then even a self-destruct on the very first battle is possible.

    Personification of Indignation: EX
    Since Shiva dwells in half of his body, once angered he will never stop until the enemy has been defeated.

    Mani Jewel: B
    A jewel he had implanted in his forehead since birth.
    Thanks to this, he was able to protect himself from beasts and demonic existences. Later, he had to hand it over as a proof of his surrender.

    Violation of Chivalry: A
    In the Mahabharata, the vows exchanged between warriors were trampled upon one after the other.
    Revenge incited revenge, and offence bred even further offence. Supposedly, Ashvatthaman performed a forbidden night raid due excessive rage and brought down his enemies.

    Greatly Revered Warrior: A+
    Something that sublimated his anecdotes of being extolled as one of the greatest warriors of the Mahabharata, comparable to Karna and Arjuna.
    By means of a combination with Violation of Chivalry and Personification of Indignation, he might become more of a mad warrior than even a Berserker.

    Curiously, this is a Noble Phantasm based on a weapon that he did not use, could not use while alive.
    Every time he was summoned as a Servant, he held on to this giant charkra, freely employed it as a weapon and kept carving it in his records as a warrior.

    In other words, his way of using a chakra is completely self-taught, an original that was not learned from anyone.


    Asclepius
    Asclepius

    Asclepius is a Greek hero who studied medicine under Kheiron and later came to be known as the "God of Medicine".
    Also, a member of the Argonauts lead by Iason.

    A child of Apollon, he eventually came to possess enough power to even resurrect the dead, but was killed by the thunder of a god that viewed that as a problem.

    Apollon copulated with a woman named Coronis.
    However, Apollon ended up killing her out of rage when a crow informed him of her infidelity, also changing the crow's feathers (which were white until then) to black. Still, Apollon came to regret killing Coronis, so he picked up the child (Asclepius) in her belly that was on verge of being cremated and entrusted him to the sage Kheiron for raising.

    Asclepius learned medicine and hunting under Kheiron, eventually coming to demonstrate even greater ingenuity in medicine than Kheiron.
    His medicine would reach the point of resurrecting people by means of a medicine manufactured from the Gorgon's blood provided by Athena.
    However, if men were to overcome death, the realm of the dead would lose its raison d'être.
    Sensing danger, the God of Underworld Hades appealed for Zeus to deal with him (he could not interfere with Asclepius directly since he was a child of Apollon), and Zeus shot him down with a thunder.

    In order to soothe Apollon's anger for having his son killed, Zeus elevated the dead Asclepius to the seat of gods (the constellation Ophiuchus).

    While Apollon was a deity that governed over many things - such as archery, performing arts, prophecy and the sun - he was also a god of pestilence that governed over medicine as a manifestation of his dual nature.

    God of Medicine: EX
    A skill that denotes his existence as a god of medical science, the founder of the concept called "medical treatment​" that was transmitted until modern times.
    According to another theory, Kheiron was supposedly the first to ever perform therapies by means of medicinal herbs, while Asclepius learned and further developed those into the first ever "clinical treatment".

    The revival medicine to resurrect the dead produced by Asclepius.
    ...or so it should have been, but this Noble Phantasm is not the "real deal" and just a medicine that imitates it.
    The revival medicine that he actually manufactured in the past was something that employed one-of-a-kind special ingredients, and is not something that he can automatically pull out as a Noble Phantasm even after becoming a Heroic Spirit.
    Therefore, in a regular Holy Grail War, he will have to employ this mock-revival medicine.
    Since it is an imitation, its efficacy is inferior to the original and many conditions must be met for it to actually resurrect the dead.
    Things like the elapsed time since the death and the condition of the corpse.
    Having gained modern knowledge, he describes it as "merely something akin to a well-made AED" in a self-derision manner.
    Also, that imitation medicine itself is also quite precious and cannot be used many times over.

    It has the power to completely revive humans and demigods even from very absurd conditions.
    It has been said he employed this to resurrect Glaucus (son of King Minos) and Hyppolytus (son of Theseus).
    The ingredient for this medicine is the Gorgon's blood that Athena handed over to him (Athena herself was given it by Perseus).
    Supposedly, the blood that flowed out from the left side of Gorgon's body brought ruin to people, while the blood that flowed from her right side had the power to save people.

    To tell the truth, merely being extracting blood from the Gorgon will not do the trick. Since he supposedly "received the power of Artemis" when reviving Hyppolytus, it probably can only come to completion once this blood is charged with with a god's power of high purity (on the same level as Athena and Artemis). Other things may also be necessary as secret ingredient​s. In the end, that revival medicine of the past was not produced only by his medicine, but also the intervention of many factors and coincidences. Also, it is not like Asclepius has fully mastered this revival medicine's recipe himself either.

    ―――naturally, this is exactly why he putting his whole heart into its reproduction even to this day.

    Oda Nobunaga (Avenger)
    Demon Lord Nobunaga

    The Demon Lord of the Sixth Heaven, Oda Nobunaga. She has a Saint Graph that can be described as an aggregation of all the possible Nobunagas in the past, present and future.
    An extremely unique Heroic Spirit whose manifestation was believed to be possible only within a certain peculiar space, but for some reason she achieved the current manifestation.

    Oda Nobunaga: the Nobunaga whose figure is closest to that of Nobunaga's original Saint Graph. While that way of describing it may not be strictly correct, we shall leave it at that for the sake of convenience.

    Although summoned in the Avenger Class, this condition is close to when she is summoned as an Archer.
    However, even for a Heroic Spirit, the karma of fear and resentment from the masses that dwells in her body (as an enemy of gods, buddhas and all living things) was not something that could be completely contained within the Saint Graph from someone that "originally was just a human", causing Nobunaga's possibilities to be edified after repeated Ascensions.
    While it may sound nice calling it many possibilities, but what awaits at the end of all that is a loss of meaning due diffusion. Nobunaga herself is aware of this, although she does not speak of it.

    As a new weaponry, she acquired a mysterious ultra arquebus, something like a demon lord's gatling cannon. An arquebus that can rapid-fire by rotating, isn't that super amusing?

    "Well, at the end of the day, don't you think that I am the most lovely and cute of all me? Or rather, isn't the tallest me kind of scary?"

    Oda Kippoushi: Kippoushi is Oda Nobunaga's childhood name.
    In her infancy, she performed many queer deed and was called a fool by the people around her.

    The figure of a gallant young warrior that is a vivid reminder of the Fool of Owari's period, which was unprecedented and precarious of all the periods in Nobunaga's lifetime. The vigour that rise up from that body and the heated blood that gushes out displays the actual conditions of this Saint Graph, as the soldier of fortune Nobunaga who opened a new age.

    Incidentally, the sword shining on her hips is the Souzasamonji plundered from Imagawa Yoshimoto, during the Battle of Okehazama.

    "Actually, I didn't actually call myself Kippoushi back at that time. That being said, in such an amusing place where there are other Nobunagas beside me, this is easier to understand, right? Wahahahahaha!"

    Demon Lord Nobunaga: among all the possible Nobunaga's, she is the most distant and the one closest to the abyss.
    Calling herself the Demon Lord of the Sixth Heavens, she has metamorphosed into an existence worthy of being described as a true demon lord, as her body (which is both hollow and mighty) has been scorched by the fear and awe towards the Nobunagas from all ages.

    However, she does not repudiates gods and buddhas on a fundamental level. Instead, this figure denotes Nobunaga's conviction that "human possibilities belong to humans. Gods and buddhas are to be respected but not relied on. Or rather, who the hell would want to become divine?".
    The so called Innocent Monster, but the way of being of Demon Lord Nobunaga as an anti-hero that became an enemy of gods and buddhas and imposes a harsh life on all living things is close to the way of being of the heavenly demons, who are said to ultimately become allies of Buddhism.

    "I am Demon Lord Nobunaga--- the one who surpassed the Nirmannarati and metamorphosed into an enemy of gods, buddhas and all living things!"

    Also, it is important to note that this "Demon Lord Nobunaga" is not the ultimate Nobunaga. While she one of the strongest forms produced by the story called "Nobunaga", that does not mean that she is its "ultimate". If anything, she is the one who appears in the place furthest away from the "truth"--- a human-shaped flame that burns brightly at the nirvana

    Being constantly on the receiving end of the corrective force of the world due to her mighty powers and the abnormality of her way of being, the existence of Demon Lord Nobunaga is hollow and her Saint Graph itself is in a hazy condition as well.

    Demon Lord of the Sixth Heavens: EX
    A monster whose past way of being was later distorted by the image of her previous life. It ends up transforming the abilities and figure of the owner. A skill falsely similar to "Innocent Monster".

    Mori Nagayoshi
    Mori Nagayoshi

    A military commander of the Sengoku period.
    The son of Mori Yoshinari, a meritorious retainer of the Oda House, and the older brother of the Mori Naritoshi (Ranmaru) that became famous as Nobunaga's attendant.
    A brave warrior who inherited his father's (who was extolled as the "Sanza(1) of attack") bravery and spearmanship, he accomplished many military achievements and became famous as the "Oni Musashi".

    An individual with an extremely violent disposition, it has been said that when a checkpoint guard told him to dismount his horse and state his family name, he ragingly tried to cut him down without a second thought while saying "I might have forgiven you if we were in the presence of Lord Nobunaga, but who are you to tell this Katsuzou (Mori Nagayoshi) to dismount his horse?!", threatened to put the city on fire when people tried to restrain him and coercively forced his way through.
    He has an abundance of similar anecdotes such as raging when told to dismount at a bridge that had just been completed and cutting (redacted).
    Incidentally, the one who told him to dismount and state his family name was none other than Nobunaga herself. Yet, for some reason she forgave him.
    According to Nobunaga---

    "It cannot be helped, since he is the Oni Musashi".

    In his first battle, he raided the enemy camp and obtained 27 head prizes. Due overkilling the enemy forces at the Siege of Takatou, during the Koushuu Seibatsu(2), his lower armour became bright red from their blood, which caused his allies to mistake him as severely wounded. As you can see, despite boasting to be an excellent warrior, he was also more brutal than necessary.
    On the other hand, he was able to handle the management of his fief flawlessly, and one could even say he excelled at it. Practiced tea ceremony as a hobby, and also displayed an intellectual aspect that enjoyed reading. What's up with that?

    Other than a Berserker, he also has the qualifications for the Lancer and Rider Classes, but for some reason the skill Mad Enhancement will invariably come along regardless in which class he is summoned.

    Nagayoshi ran through the Sengoku period while behaving completely insolent, but he lost his life while still young after receiving a gun wound in the Battle of Komaki and Nagakute. Although it has been said that not only the enemy, but even his allies overjoyed at Nagayoshi's death, the authenticity of this is unknown.

    At any rate, while Nagayoshi may have accumulated many ambiguous anecdotes of pointless violence, he never once pointed a spear at his lord throughout his lifetime. Even now, after being summoned as a Servant, his loyalty towards the Master that he has approved is the same as the one that he showed to his lord, so there is no worries of being betrayed by him.

    However, it is impossible to say whether said loyalty will take a shape that is desirable by the Master...

    Testament of the Oni Musashi: C
    A testament left behind by Nagayoshi. It display differing effects at two different timings - when the skill is first used and when he is put out-of-combat. The hard to believe anecdote - of not only his enemy, but even his allies overjoying when he lost his life - turned into a skill.

    Nagao Kagetora
    Nagao Kagetora

    Extolled as Japan's unparalleled military commander in terms of warfare, the daimyo of Echigo during the Sengoku period that would later be called a War God, Nagao Kagetora.
    She would present herself as an avatar of Bishamonten and spend her life trying to subdue the world of warring states by means of righteousness.

    "I do not take arms out of personal bias.
    Simply provide assistance to somewhere else according to proper reason!
    "

    After consolidating the Echigo province (which was a continuous victim of domestic conflict), she dispatched troops countless times after receiving calls for rescue from other provinces and unfolded many wars against the likes of the Takeda and the Houjou.
    In the battleground, she always stood in the vanguard and commanded her army by means of overwhelming charisma and tactical genius. She experienced around 70 conflicts in her lifetime, but never once lost a major battle.

    She changed name several times throughout her life, calling herself Nagao Kagetora, Uesugi Masatora and ultimately Uesugi Terutora. Her most famous name, Kenshin, is in fact a Dharma name taken much later.

    "Eh? The name Kenshin is more famous than Kagetora!?"

    Kagetora worried daily.
    "In the battlefield, would it be better to bring a sword or a spear? Which equipment is the strongest... Arquebus? That is no good since it doesn't hit."

    On a certain day, she opened her eyes to the truth upon meeting a grotesque statue of Bishamonten holding eight swords - the "Touhachi Bishamonten".
    "That's right, I should just bring out everything, sword and spear together!"

    What appeared in the next day was the figure of the War God of Echigo as she brandished eight weapons, designated as the 'eight flowers provision', and lively rampaged on the battlefield.

    The birth of the strongest, peerless Sengoku general - "Full Armor Kagetora-chan".

    Calling herself an incarnation of Bishamonten, Kagetora endeavoured to protect the people as an example of the human principle called morality. But due being born with too much strength for a person, in her entire life, she never managed to understand the existence called 'weak humans'.

    Unable to comprehend the subtleties of human emotions such as sadness and anger, Kagetora achieved a compromise with her surroundings by means of smiling alone. However, the retainers that were struck by her transcendental​(1) words and conduct eventually came to fear Kagetora, and that fear gradually changed into a fanatic form of faith. Thus, the even more inhuman way of life of gods and buddhas was forced upon Kagetora.

    For such Kagetora, it was only possible to feel something as a human being during the deadly conflicts of the battlefield, the instants when life and death met.

    After death, that transcendental​(1) way of life caused her to be set up in the seat of gods as a war god. There is no longer a way to know if that was her original intention or not.

    ―――Bishamonten is here.

    My Armour Lies Within My Chest: A
    A defensive skill towards projective weapons.
    A skill derived from the anecdote of how, in her previous life, she calmly drank alcohol before the enemy bullets as bullets flied about, and yet all shots passed right by her.
    Since her intense self-confidence causes a phenomenon akin to event manipulation(2) and bends even the trajectory of the projective, no bullet will ever hit her unless she believes that is the case.
    However, it is possible to break through this divine protection by charging such a vigour in one's shot that it causes her to believe it will hit.

    My Feats Lie By My Feet: A
    The tactical intuition ability of Kagetora, who was extolled as Japan's peerless in terms of warfare. In her lifetime, Kagetora experienced over 70 engagements and won in most of them, but she is somewhat weak in castle sieges.

    A Noble Phantasm that converted kurumagakari formation (which Nagao Kagetora supposedly specialised at) for anti-unit combat. Originally, this is a military formation in which the troops are divided into several minor groups and made to attack the enemy camp by turns.

    Once True Name is released, Kagetora splits herself into 8 doubles(4), all which are fully armed and on horseback, and alternately swoop down on the enemy - a sure-kill, one-man kurumagakari formation.

    "Dash, Houshou Tsukige! The divine protection of Bishamonten is here!"

    She showcases the vandalism of forcibly summoning her favourite horse, Houshou Tsukige, under the name of Bishamonten - something otherwise impossible outside of the Rider Class.

    Hessian Lobo (after change)
    An extremely peculiar composite-type of Servant that combined three Phantoms: the King of Currumpaw Lobo, the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow and the Invisible Man (a fictional character).
    While it may have temporarily become possible to summon them as a Servant thanks to the Singularity of Shinjuku, these three will never yield to humans. The past won't change, and it is impossible to even cuddle close together as man and animal. The only thing allowed to the Master is probably to face each other without averting his eyes.


    Kama
    Kama

    The God of Love from hindu Mythology, also called Kamadeva. Originally a male deity.
    She manifested while making a somewhat familiar young girl as her vessel.
    Supposedly, this is related to the peculiarity of the original girl and the existence of another goddess who also turned into a Pseudo-Servant.

    It has been said that she possesses a bow of sugarcane and arrows adorned with flowers, which evokes sexual desire on those shot with it.
    Her anecdote of shooting (piercing) the god Shiva - who focused on nothing but ascetic practices - in order to make him notice the feeling of the goddess that was his wife is particularly famous.
    Naturally, she has aptitude for the Archer Class, but...?

    Things she likes:
    To hinder someone else
    Worldly thoughts
    Depravity
    Failures as human beings

    Things she hates:
    Third eye (be it Shiva's or some other related to it)
    Parvati
    Shiva
    Sparkling people

    Due a past trauma, she fundamentally does not feel like using her Noble Phantasm for the sake of others.
    It is foolish to meddle in others' love affairs, or so her current self thinks.

    I wish that people would find another place for their romance discussions.
    Those who want me to shoot arrows like a cupid should just die. Rather, I find super fun to hinder people who get all excited about love and romance...

    Kama has became defiant in such a manner, as a "evil goddess of love".

    One Without a Body: EX
    A skill that denotes one of Kama's aliases, "Ananga (one without a body)".

    Once upon a time, there was a demon god called Taraka who tormented the gods.
    While the gods knew that only the child of Shiva and Parvati could defeat him, Shiva paid no attention to Parvati at the time due being too much focused on ascetic practices.
    Troubled by those circumstances, the gods decided to dispatch Kama to shoot Shiva with an arrow of sexual desires in order to recover their marital love.
    However, Shiva supposedly became enraged by Kama's actions and burned him to death by opening his third eye.

    The fate of the divinity who received Shiva's (the god who destroys all creation, in other words the cosmos itself) power directly into his body and turned to ashes was―――

    Mara Papiyas: EX
    A skill that temporarily makes another facet of Kama apparent; the disposition as a demon lord that is an incarnation of worldy thoughts.

    Kama is also called by the alias of Mara, which is treated as a differnt aspect of the same existence.
    They are also lumped together as Kama-Mara.
    Supposedly, the etymology of Mara is "he who kills" and is often interpreted as "demon" or "demon lord".
    In Buddhism, he is the sixth deva of the kamadhatu, the "demon lord of the sixth heaven" who resides in the Paranimmita-vasavatti.

    When Shakyamuni attempted to reach enlightenment beneath the bodhi tree, Mara attempted to obstruct him by perfoming many nuisances.
    Sending in his three beautiful daughters (some also say he transformed himself into them), throwing a disk of fire, raining rocks and weapons, making monsters attack him, causing torrential rains and windstorms...
    However, Shakyamuni transformed the thrown disks and weapons into flowers, so it was impossible to obstruct his enlightenment.
    A position as "the one who hinders the practitioner of austerities", just as denoted by the Kama who hinders Shiva, and the Mara who hinders Shakyamuni.
    One may say that Kama-Mara is a god that simultaneously represents both the positive and negative aspects of the concept of love.

    Mara (Beast III/L)
    ]Beast III/L

    Beast III/L.
    While Beast III/R was an incarnation of narcisim that "fulfills the universe with her own love alone", this one is an incarnation of philanthropy(1) "exhausts the universe with a love directed towards all of humanity".

    While Kama-Mara is high-handed, sadistic and behaves as if looking down on humanity, she can "love" anyone no matter what kind of person they might be; and thus she can make them "fall into lust(2)".
    Nonetheless​, as expected, said love does not take the other party into consideration.
    She does not cause others to fall into depravity due indulging in her love, but rather uses love for the sake of making them depraved - such is Kama-Mara beastial nature.

    Originally a bunrei that was a mere fragment of the Divine Spirit Kama-Mara, she manifested by borrowing a human form and became a Pseudo-Servant.
    Although it was not a deliberate deed, Parvati split the body of "the girl who became her vessel" into good and evil parts.
    The "Kama of this life" possessed・reincarnated into that "evil" part as if drawn to it. That is the reason why she became a female god instead of a male one.

    Kama-Mara possesses an affinity with the inverse, negative aspect of the emotion called love - its various facets as an existence.
    Kama-Mara was already an unstable existence to begin with, but due her "divine core that mixed together love and suffering" conforming with the fortune(3) of the "girl who became her vessel", she acquired a more solid Saint Graph.
    Fundamentally, the proportion of Kama:Mara is 6:4.
    Just like other Divine Spirit Servants such as Ishtar, she has the character (personality・disposition) of the girl who became her vessel, but not her individuality (personal history).

    The usual Kama has a Kama:Mara proportion of 6:4. But when that proportion greatly leans towards Mara, her Saint Graph awakens as a Beast.
    Kama obtained the body of the universe, but that is no different to the demon lord Mara (who is the same existence as her) acquiring the power of the boundless territory (universe).
    The calamity・worst case scenario of "a god of love that connected with the universe" being no different from "a demon lord of desire that connected with the univese".
    Kama became an existence that contained within herself the disaster of "an universal deluge of love and desire".
    Under these circumstances, she has more than enough qualifications to become an immature beast that destroys humans.

    Beast III/R - one of the seven human vices, the beast of "lust" - has already manifested.
    As if chained(4) to that.
    She manifested with the exact opposite orientation as that beast who "directed all love towards herself", and yet as an immature beast of the same "lust" that "provides all love herself; in other words, robs away all love (which originally should be directed at a beloved person)".

    The god of love who was prescribed to nestle close to the love of others, was annihilated upon getting embroiled in the love of others and ended up obtaining the infinite as a result, grew tired of love quite naturally.
    Thus, she is attempting to fulfill everything with her infinite love.
    If the universe (humanity) is fulfilled by her love, then the unpleasant, troublesome love of others cannot exist there.

    What exists here is a beast that sprays on humanity a (arrow of) lust that can burn the universe.
    There is no need to do anything.
    There is no problem in becoming a failure.
    To be loved, approved of even after degrading into a livestock. Kama-Mara makes such an ultimate pampering possible.
    Giving all humans in the universe, every single one of them, a greater love (temptation) than the one once bestowed to Shakyamuni.

    "Worldly thoughts may be immeasurable, but I vow to server them all――― it is painful, right? I shall burn away all your worries."

    That figure - which smiles while jokingly scorning the Bodhisattva vow - is truly fitting for the arch-nemesis of Buddhism, the one called a demon lord.

    Her Class was determined by this true nature described above.
    The God of Love and the likes are nothing but fake names.
    This is the great disaster that a divine demon was reduced to, and who saves humanity in the most widespread manner.

    Its name is Beast III/L.
    An aspect of the seven human vices, the beast carrying the principle of "lust".

    ---

    Authority of the Beast: A
    A skill that might also be called "anti-mankind".
    Assassin Kama does not possess this skill.
    ...or maybe, it is kept hidden deep within her facet as Mara.

    Banyoku Outai(5): EX
    To begin with, Kama-Mara was furnished with a higher-order of diversity of shapes and abilities in order to answer to the desires (worldly thoughts) of the many humans that live in this world. By adding the boundless disposition of the universe on top to that, such diversity was sublimated into a more concrete form.

    This is an Authority for the sake of surely nestling close to, pampering and depraving every single desire (worldly thought) in the universe. A theorem in which "all-corresponding selves", which can be freely customized, exist in infinite numbers as if stardusts.

    In other words, the beastial Kama-Mara exist infinitely within her own inner universe.

    Nega Desire: A
    An absolute, ultimate doting skill possessed by the beast who is an incarnation of worldly thoughts. No matter what kind of existence it may be, those who possess desires will literally become depraved at the ends of her love.
    If all the desires, worldly thoughts that exist in the universe were to be fulfilled by an infinite love, that would be no different from the concept of desire being eradicated from the universe.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Rank:
    EX
    Type: Anti-World
    Range: 100~99999
    Maximum Targets: 1 person
    A Noble Phantasm for the exclusive-use of Beast III/L. As an exception, it possesses two True Names.
    This is because they both denotes "the same thing".
    Samsara means the "cycle of transmigration" in Sanskrit, and derives from one of Kama's aliases - "Samsaraguru". Avaruddha means "obstacle" in Sanskrit, and denotes the many nuisances (in other words, the temptations into depravity) that Mara unleashed towards Shakyamuni.

    A compulsive indulgence of love that carries both positive and negative meanings...
    An extreme depravity Noble Phantasm that represents a cataclysmic-level bewitchingness by the power of two deities, Kama and Mara.
    If one were to receive this Noble Phantasm while within Kama's universe, he would probably end up seeing a hell-like (or maybe paradise-like) spectable in which "Kama indiscriminately sends in herself (her duplicates) from all directions and burns the universe into depletion with an one-sided love".



    (1) the original Japanese term literally means "love towards others". Since there is no directly corresponding term for that in the English language, I went for the closest substitute that I could find.

    (2) the original Japanese term can also be translated as "passion"

    (3) as in "one's lot", "destiny"

    (4) as in "chain reaction"

    (5) roughly, "all-desires corresponding body". Seems like an allusion to Kiara's (Beast III/R) Banshoku Yuutai skill.



    By the way, I came to realize that I completely lost track of which of the incomplete profiles already had their missing parts published. If anyone knows about something and wants me to translate it, just give me a heads up.

    Jeanne d'Arc (Swimsuit)
    Jeanne d'Arc (Archer)

    A holy woman that flew down on the everlasting summer.
    The star of the dolphin world, who bided her time for a holy entrance.
    As she replaces the sacred flag for a loop (ring), an unprecedented Fantasia(1) unfolds―――

    "Yes. Frankly speaking, I couldn't be more festive than in a swimsuit!
    Let's put aside all formalities and spend this summer in an exhilarating manner!
    "

    She herself thinks that there is not much difference other than her wearing a swimsuit.
    But of course, she is extremely different.
    The carefreeness that remains fluffy from beginning to end and prizes summer over goodness clearly shows that her joyousness is at full throttle.
    In addition, she thinks that the swimsuit is something meant just for enjoying the summer, rather than for dressing herself up.

    However, upon reaching her final Ascension, she undergoes a Class Change from "a dolphin lady in the beach" to "a holy woman that descended onto the everlasting summer". Changing the Lord's divine protection into a loop (halo) of light, she turns into a high-mobility shooting holy woman that does as she pleases.

    She controls a dolphin as her familiar.
    Named Ries, he strides on land and flies on the sky in accordance to Jeanne's orders.
    Possessing high intellect, he can constantly maintain himself at a reasonable distance by the right corner of her field of vision
    "I want to know a way to erase you".
    In addition, their meeting was a simple and fluffy girl-meets-dolphin in which Jeanne helped a dolphin in trouble.

    She formed the Circle "st. Orleans" together with Marie Antoinette.
    While the concerned duo believes they are writing love comedies, it seems to have earned itself a different kind of reputation.
    "No matter how you read it, this is a explosion scene".
    "Rather than bittersweet, this is more like saturated sugared water".
    "I don't understand why you would launch a smartphone from a cannon just to ask someone their contact address​".

    Due many reasons, her Noble Phantasm also changed. Probably changed.

    And thus Ibaraki Douji fully enjoys those summer days.

    Comparatively speaking, she looks like the usual Ibaraki Douji.
    It appears that she herself also thinks there is not much of a difference.
    If you look from the outset, it might seem that "her mood has improved somewhat". However, if one were to point that out, she will undoubtedly snap at him. Still, that is not the case if the one to do so is Shuten Douji:

    Incidentally, this work regards that Ibaraki Douji lost to Watanabe no Tsuna at Rashoumon and again at Ichijou Modoribashi. She lost to Watanabe no Tsuna twice in a row.

    Although she herself intended it to be a full-powered Heian rocket punch just like in her Berserker state - in other words, launching a Sougenbi - for some reason it simultaneously deploys five spears once the True Name is released, which then transform into "something like five giant fingers", make a giant fist and send out an uppercut.
    The enemy who receives this is launched high in the sky and scatter in gorgeous brilliance, much like fireworks in the summer night sky.

    Ushiwakamaru (Swimsuit)
    Ushiwakamaru (Assassin)

    The tengu girl - who (probably) was a source of gossips in Mt. Kurama - has descended on the beach!

    An expert of the arts of war who is also an expert of playing.
    Having changed into a swimsuit, Ushiwakamaru is no longer Ushiwakamaru - that nimbleness, that supernatural power, that risqué swimsuit definitely belongs to the female tengu of Mt. Kurama.

    "This nimbleness, and the Mother Nature that surrounds me... all reminds me of my days of training in the mountains!
    Oh, this fan? It's just a hand-me-down from my master, so don't mind it!
    "

    By changing into a swimsuit and connecting with Mother Nature in Hawaii, for some reason Ushiwakamaru grew closer to how she was during her days of training at Mt. Kurama - back when she bustled about in the middle of nature as she pleased.

    What has been strongly carved in her head is the teachings of her teacher in the mountains: "playing is a form of training in itself". Thus, even while properly fulfilling her duties as a Servant, she seeks a chance to play (train) together with her Master at any opportunity she gets. A hustling faithful dog of summer that obediently endures in wait while wagging her tail and thinking 'when will he play with me...' Try to play with her if you have some spare time.

    Her mentality is somewhat immature, with the aspect of a mischievous child.
    However, the "decisiveness" without a shred of human kindness (which lies at the roots of the existence called Ushiwakamaru) has not been lost.
    Rather, thanks to having turned into an existence closer to a tengu, there are also times when she demonstrates a privilege mentality such as saying "As a tengu, I'm stronger than humans" (not as sarcasm, but rather quite naturally).
    Also, Ushiwakamaru's side as a mischievous child mentioned above often appears as she is "bestowing punishment (teaching) upon humans that do not realize how foolish they are and laughing loudly".
    Thus, her position is somewhat closer to something inhuman.

    "That human is really hopeless.
    Alright, let's discipline him by making fun of him.
    "

    However, towards those who perform truly evil deeds such as manslaughter​, she instead says that "there is no need for punishment. Putting him to the sword shall be enough".

    Animal Conversation: D
    It is possible to come to a mutual understanding with animals that do not possess their own language.
    Since this is derived from a youthful sensitivity from when she bustled about on the mountains, it has been lost after she came down from the mountains (in her state as a Rider). This is achieved merely by means of a feeling, so it is not like she is actually speaking an animal language.
    The manner how she occasionally utters racoon-like sounds may be vestiges from her old days of training.

    By the way, when asked why she changed into the Assassin Class, her answer is:
    "In order to get a clean hit with a wooden sword against my teacher while he was sleeping, I would devote myself to train in self-concealment while using the animals of the forest as training partners, so..."
    "No way, you became an Assassin with just that?"
    "Well, yeah. I'm a genius after all."

    Godchild of Kurama: A+
    A divine protection from "something" that exists on Mt. Kurama.
    It seems that Ushiwakamaru believes this to be "a divine protection from the mountain's tengus", but exact details are unknown.

    Jeanne Alter (Berserker)

    "If she gets swimsuit, it is only natural that I have to get one as well!"

    The summer charm cornered the dragon witch to this point.
    From the moment that she heard that this mission's destination was Hawaii, her resolve became ironclad.
    She spent an entire night up checking guide books and filling them with sticky notes, dressed herself in a stylish coordinated outfit akin to a Hollywoodian actress that travels incognito to a resort and departed to the paradise of eternal summer.

    A single stray Heroic Spirit that became the strongest agent.
    Such is the Berserker burned by the jet black flames of vengeance, Jeanne d'Arc Alter....!

    In order to oppose Jeanne d'Arc, her fated rival (or so she thinks), Alter-chan changed into a swimsuit.
    Despite transforming from an Avenger to a Berserker, it seems that she herself does not felt much of a change.
    If pressed to say, her inclinations towards her hobbies became somewhat stronger, and she started to employ German terms more frequently.

    Her behaviour towards the Master is the same as usual, and she seems to think that it is only natural that he stays together with and follows her around.
    That being said, she feels a little bit guilty about getting him caught up in that summer riot and having him help with her Circle's activities.
    Just a little bit.

    A central character in the Summer event.
    She started the Circle "Gespenst Ketzer" and kept drawing manga together with the protagonist.
    Everything derived from her sense of rivalry towards Jeanne d'Arc, but it seems that the basis for it was a feeling (which was neither hatred or longing) towards an "impossible development", a "story that should have been fulfilled".

    After the Summer event was over, she became somewhat closer to the liberal arts-type Servants, even while being exasperated with herself thinking "why was I so desperate back them?"

    Meurs Où Tu Dois: EX
    To be accurate, it is "Va où tu veux, meurs où tu dois".
    A French saying that means 'go where you will, die where you must'.
    Despite everything, her Avenger self has been seeking a place to die.
    Not a pleasant, peaceful death.
    No matter how violent, hopeless it may be.
    She keeps fighting everyday in hopes for an ending that she can be satisfied with.

    BB (Swimsuit)
    BB (Swimsuit)

    In order to make this the best summer ever, that unidentifiable cyber demon appeared before us once again.
    In order to save Chaldea from several unique precedents, she sometimes dispatches a mysterious slot machine in large quantities, and sometimes supplies a troublesome Alterego.
    Truly almighty, lovely, and finally a junior.
    Her true colours is that of your BB-chan, the sweet evil who changed into a swimsuit to fully enjoy summer and is nothing but adorable!

    In order to fully enjoy Hawaii, she remodelled herself into a High-Servant and entered into the extremely fervid swimsuit market (red ocean).
    From an innocent swimsuit to a provocative one, she appeals to her heroine powers with extensive change of clothes, but...?

    The junior-type devilish heroine that gallantly appeared on the far side of the moon.
    She manipulates her senior (Master) as a cheerful, precocious junior.
    Despite calling herself a 'great devil' rather than a 'little imp', due being a good girl originally, she had a soft spot that prevented her from sticking through the role of a demon... or so it was, but the current BB is somewhat different.

    In the first stage of her Saint Graph, BB is like cheerleader that roots for the Master. But as you proceed into the second and third stages, her hidden nature gets exposed.

    Manufactured as her avatars, the Alteregoes Passionlip and Meltlilith were High-Servants that had the essence of goddess mixed-in. But now even BB fused with a number of "divinities" and was reborn in a more aggressive Saint Graph.

    BB have two divinities installed within herself.
    The first is the goddess of Hawaii, Pele.
    An immortal goddess and the personification of a Hawaiian volcano - upon assimilating such Pele, BB's skin changed into a light brown that is very suited for the southern lands and her personality became more aggressive.
    The birth of Black BB.

    By having installed the divinity of the goddess Pele (who is "violent, self-centred and ends up killing most of those who get in contact with her"), BB turned into a "sadistic goddess who corners those she love until they die".
    According to the testimony of a Master that has been terribly manipulated by BB, "that isn't much different from what she normally is, right?".

    BB have two divinities installed within herself.
    The second is an existence from the deep space, who does not exist on Earth and was not something from this universe originally. An evil god that might as well be called a 'trickster', who seduces and plays with all kinds of intelligent life-forms, causing them to self-destruct.
    By imprisoning the Hawaiian Islands into a "temporal cage" with the powers of this evil god, BB planned a festival to actualize an eternally unending resort in order to save the Master from "a despair that awaited in the future".

    It goes without saying what the truth and conclusion of all that was. In the end, BB-chan was just BB-chan after all. Ta-da



    Still, did she really sympathised with an evil god?
    Maybe everything was just BB's imagination, like a placebo effect.

    For some reason, her alignment changed from Good to Evil.
    Her own testimony is that "even after turning Evil, I'm still humanity's partner(1), so you can rest assured about that☆".

    Self-Modification: EX
    A skill that BB usually possesses. A skill to remodel oneself.
    This time, it seems that it was used unintentionally by pure coincidence.
    Prepare yourselves, o recipients that go by the name of humans.
    What can I say; tonight the stars are in plain view.

    Aurea Pork Porka: A
    The golden chalice of the pork.
    Supposedly, the goddess Pele deeply loved the hog demigod Kamapua'a even as she abused him. Her affinity with BB - who treats her loved one like a piglet - is excellent.
    The Hawaiian version of the golden chalice that BB pilfered.
    Unlike usual, this one is applied on herself.
    Drinking this makes BB-chan's sadistic switch flip on.

    Faceless Moon: EX
    The lingering fragrance of a certain evil god, who drives humans into ruin as if to test them.
    A Reality Marble that makes the boundary with the imaginary space(2) more definite and drops the surroundings on the "far side of the moon (shadow face)".
    Once the world is covered by the moon's shadow, all time will freeze.

    A crazy space in which she converts the surroundings into an imaginary space(2) by expanding her own shadow, ranks down the world and lifeforms found there into existences of a lower dimension and plays with them as if an overlord.
    BB's usual Noble Phantasm was an operation (surgery) in which she "uses a nurse outfit to amusingly, cruelly" degrade the enemy, but this is a serious operation that fully releases her powers.
    The attack of a Last Boss, in which she abides to the motto of "large scale, scary and seriously bad" as a pioneering horror-type heroine.
    Having turned into a giant, higher dimension existence, BB easily scoops out the land and encroaches the world. Just like how one scoops a pudding with a spoon.

    ...supposedly, it is only at the third stage of her Saint Graph that the second divinity installed in her reveals its identity, but...?

    Pure and clean.
    The lewd and unscrupulous Queen Medb.
    A single flower that blooms beautifully at the centre of the world. Or maybe, a large flower attempting to blossom in full glory as if to cover the world.
    In addition, this time she is an existence akin to a bikini model――― someone highly self-conscious as a flower that charms people.

    Exactly because she accurately understands how much value and power her body possesses, one could say that it was only a matter of time before she was installed as a gorgeous Celebrity Servant adapted to modern times.

    Originally a composite skill that includes Golden Rule (Body), but a portion of its effects are different in this work.

    Eau de Toilette - White Honey: B
    Endowed with a honey-like sweet fragrance that makes others melt to her sigh and voice, she freely influences the target's parameters just by standing there.
    Against existences without defensive measures against magical power (such as ordinary humans and animals), she probably can bend them to her will in an instant.
    For instance, it is possible to change a young boy into a brave warrior comparable to veteran soldier. Conversely, she can also turn a veteran soldier into a young boy.

    Even Servants will have their parameters tampered with if they don't have the means to resist this.
    A skill falsely similar to "Tipsiness of a Fruit".
    Since she moves to apply a perfume when employing this skill, it might be possible to stop its activation by hindering those movements... but where in this world would you find an individual capable of obstructing her actions?

    She can perform the release of True Name as if a matter of course, but it seems that she is demonstrating some self-restraint at this occasion. Even Queen Medb - no, exactly because she is Queen Medb that there is no way she would cause an earthquake in a wonderful resort spot.

    Nobody knows if, just like when she is a Rider, she materialized this due to the properties of her anecdotes and legends about "taking possession of heroes" or if she simply borrowed it from the Fergus at Chaldea.
    As expected, its power have decreased compared to when Fergus himself uses it, but its flexibility, adaptability have improved in exchange.
    A rainbow veil is instantly deployed just by shaking it cutely with a "hey".
    Enemy soldiers that become Medb's targets will probably be arrested in a rainbow veil and rendered powerless inside that light of ecstasy, without understanding a thing about what happened.

    One-Shot My Love - My Dear Summer's Tryst

    A summer love; a single commemorative photograph (one-shot).
    Originally, Medb would be a Rider endowed with the special trait of "handling the Noble Phantasms of the heroes that she took possession of during her lifetime", but changing into a swimsuit and undergoing a transformation in her Saint Graph resulted in Medb attaining a new Noble Phantasm.
    Namely, a fearsome anti-unit sure-kill Noble Phantasm that employs one of the powerful weapons that Queen Medb possess - her "charm".
    Once she approaches someone while humming unconcernedly​ and says "oh, hello there​", the target will instantly be attracted to her and fall in a summer love. He will surely fall.
    Then, there will be no choice but to tragically be exhausted in the summer sky after turning into a victim of her self-indulgence as much as she pleases―――

    Those targeted by the Noble Phantasm "One-Shot My Love" should feel proud.
    After all, Queen Medb only approaches a few chosen good-looking braves... no, good-looking slaves...!

    This fearsome Noble Phantasm is composed with her charm at its core; but, surprisingly, there is no continuous​ charm effect.
    According to Medb: "well, isn't that what a summer love is all about?"


    Mysterious Heroine XX
    Mysterious Heroine XX

    A single meteor that came to destroy the Servant Festival.
    A delegate of the laws of the universe, she eradicates Earth's mankind and the Foreigners who shares the same attributes as herself.
    A peerlessly ruthless Machine Servant.

    It has been said that, when her unexpected true face is revealed, anyone will avert their gaze due to extreme astonishment―――?

    To put it simply, Mysterious Heroine X is the protagonist of a comedy-drama.
    Since she is basically Miss Artoria without her serious components, X behaves in the shortest・fastest・simplest manner regarding anything.
    Contrary to her energetic, polite conduct, she has a hopeless personality that hates to lose (due being unaware of this herself, her inability to read the mood is staggering), challenges pretty much everything and does not give up until she wins.
    Still, since she "ultimately ends up working for the sake of those around her" due being good person by nature, things functioned well at the end of the day.

    However.
    The Servant Universe came to a standstill and the proportion of heroes and villains crumbled due the excessive issue of Extra Classes. When the balance of the universe tilted towards the villains, X renewed her convictions.
    In more specific terms, the program embarked on a new season.
    Worried about being unemployment, X got herself a job on the secret society・Galaxy Police and coincidentally caught Rhongomynyad, the oldest artefact in the universe that was lying dormant at its centre. Having her talents recognized, she began to play an active role as a space sentinel (Galaxian).

    - extract from the 1st part of CG's story -

    Upon becoming a Cosmic Sheriff, X thought "this is a good opportunity" and changed her name・family register​ to XX.
    By becoming a new person, she defaulted all debts incurred so far and established the Division 0 of Special Investigations, which cracks down on invaders from outer space - the Foreigners.
    The birth of the Evil Deity Hunter, XX.

    Her instinct as a Saber Hunter became dim, while her instinct as a Foreigner Hunter came to prominence.
    That being said, it is not like she quit her Saber elimination movement, so the special effectiveness against Sabers remains the same as always.

    Motivations・Attitude towards the Master
    Her partner on Earth. A reliable wallet.
    Since X has pretty much zero romance skill, she just treats him as a friend. Still, she will eventually notice that he is her precious someone and then let her chances slip up due some misunderstanding.
    "What is this feeling in my chest... could it be that a Saber evil deity came to this planet!?"
    Fundamentally, she is the same as X. But due the self-awareness as a sheriff increasing her consciousness, she behaves more like an older sister than X.
    Since she belongs to a series from a few years later than X, she is like an office lady who became tired of daily life.

    She call the quick work of materializing・arming this at a speed of minus one second (even when suffering a surprise attack, she goes back in time one second before it happens and equips this) "Enplane"(1). Right out.
    A fearsome skill acquired by XX, who is recurrently late for work due oversleep despite becoming a Cosmic Sheriff. Surely, this is just a skill for changing clothes.
    As a matter of fact, its functions as an armor are displayed even in a spirit particles-state, so there is really no need to materialize it.
    Once armed, her offensive abilities increase dramatically.

    Instinct of the Sheriff: E
    A divine revelation for the sake of pinning down a criminal.
    At this rank, it is better not to use it to solve crimes.
    By means of a higher dimensional insight that ignores reason, hints for the sake of solving a crime are spread across the surroundings - but XX herself does not notice those hints no matter what.
    This is actually quite an excellent skill that can turn demerits into merits.

    Although she shouts many things in accordance with her mood at the time - such as "Twin-Mynyad Disaster" or "Double X Dynamic" - its True Name is "Ether Universe, Howbeit the Order".
    By means of opposing mirrors, this True Name denotes the rules of the universe that Rhongomynyad protects. A dynamic Saber Slash performed after releasing the safe-mode of Rhongomynyad-LR and increasing its output. It explodes the opponent along with the planet itself.

    (2) yeah, I know it sounds weird. In my defense, the original Japanese is also strange.

    On a complete side note: there is a popular theory among Japanese fans that, just like the other Foreigners, XX is also under the influence of some entity from the Cthulhu Mythos. Possible candidates include Nodens or one of the Star-Warriors of Orion.


    Diarmuid Ua Duibhne (Saber)
    Diarmuid Ua Duibhne (Saber)

    A sturdy knight who freely uses two magic spears and two magic swords.
    A peerless handsome man raised by the God of Sea Manannan and Oengus, the God of Love who was also a king of fairies.
    The best among the Knights of Fianna lead by Fionn mac Cumhaill, he supposedly played a great role during the Knights' united front with the Fairy King Abarta.

    At this occasion, he has manifested with the Saint Graph of a Saber.
    This is because he is proficient in not only the use of spears, but also swords―――
    Still, in this Saint Graph, his aspect as a "hero of legends・mythology" is emphasized and - maybe due possessing multiple Noble Phantasm related to the gods - the cost・degree of difficulty regarding his summoning is greater than when he is a Lancer.

    A virtuous Heroic Spirit who is loyal and sincere.
    Fundamentally the same individual than when he is a Lancer, but his self-awareness as a "knight" was strengthened by being summoned as a Saber.
    Enjoys fighting against strong opponents and shows no scruples in pursuing that. Also, he may be aware of this or not, but his self-esteem is somewhat stronger than when he is a Lancer.

    The performance of his Saint Graph has increased when compared to his time as a Lancer but, on the other hand, the degree of difficulty of his summoning also went up.
    No matter how excellent is the competency of the summoner, this Saint Graph will not be established unless specific conditions are met and it may even vanish like mist.

    According to anecdotes, Diarmuid would supposedly carry the magic sword Moralltach and the magic spear Gae Dearg when heading out to adventures that he truly had to bet his life on, and would bear the magic sword Beagalltach and the magic spear Gae Buidhe whenever he judged there would be little danger.

    ―――at the moment of his death, Diarmuid was carrying the latter set of equipments.

    If he were to be carrying the former set when entering that mountain, maybe the magic boar would have been defeated and the strongest knight of the Knights of Fianna would have lived a long life.

    If one were to point out the most powerful among the many armaments that Diarmuid Ua Duibhne employs, it could be no other than this fearsome magic sword.
    One-hit kill; securing victory on the first strike.
    The unsheathed magic sword bestows Diarmuid with certain victory and brings about defeat and death to his opponent.

    The magic sword Moralltach, which appears to manipulate even fate, was bestowed by the Celtic god of seas and the otherworld, Manannan. This Manannan was the divinity that bestowed the Noble Phantasm Fragarach (and others) to the Sun God Lugh, and was an existence that possessed, donated many Noble Phantasm.

    Once the True Name is released, a diving attack that capitalizes on a super-jump that surpasses human intellect (which became apparent by manifesting in the Saber Class) is executed. At this time, Moralltach turn into three blades - in a likeness to the "feet of the god Manannan" spoken in legengs - and cut the enemy to pieces.


    Shitonai
    Shitonai

    An existence in which several Heroic Spirits (Divine Spirits) fused while having a certain individual connected to the Holy Grail at its core.
    The details behind its establishment is regarded as identical to that of Pseudo-Servants such as Zhuge Liang, but its properties when materialized is of the same nature as High-Servants that are a fusion of multiple heroes and Alteregoes that are extractions of strong egos.

    The individual who became the yorishiro is not a human magus, but the most advanced, final homunculus produced by the Einzbern. Possessing a large-scale Command Spell that covers her entire body, the precision of her magecraft is first-class and she supposedly had the best performance as a Master. Also, she concealed within herself the functions of a Lesser Grail.

    The True Name registered for this Saint Graph is Shitonai.
    Apparently this is because, among the three Heroic Spirits (Divine Spirits) that gathered inside the yorishiro, Shitonai is the one who became most strongly visible on the surface.

    A young girl who can show a pure smile.
    However, she also conceals bottomless cruelty.

    As far as personality goes, she is closer to that of the homunculus that became her base.
    The courage to demonstrate a fighting figure that seems inappropriate for someone of her age derives from the Ainu girl-hero Shitonai, the sympathy and feelings of pity towards someone who ended up learning deep affection is from the goddess Freyja, while the mentality to brutally slaughter her opponents comes from the witch Louhi... or so one can also apply the personailty aspects of a blended existence such as an Alterego, but as of now her overall personality is that of "the girl who became a yorishiro".

    After being strengthened in many ways by the magecraft of the Age of Gods cast by Freyja and Louhi, its figure started to resemble that of a bear instead of a hunting dog and its way of being became closer to that of a spirit.
    'A ferocious big frame is appropriate for the familiar of a goddess', 'it is unsuitable for its attribute to be that of a magic beast or mythical beast'... it seems that the result of Freyja accepting such advocacies from Louhi was the transformation into a bear by a majority vote of two against three.

    A constantly active-type of Noble Phantasm.
    Upon release of True Name, an avalance-like chain attack - composed by "a charge from the hunting dog (bear)", "a bow shot that carries magical energy of ice" and "a slash from Shitonai" - is performed.

    Shuten Douji (Caster)

    It is uncertain if THAT existed during the Heian era.
    It is also hard to know if is something transmitted among the oni that live in the cracks of the modern 21th Century.
    Even still, she recites.
    The legend of the Oni of Dharmapala.

    Just like the heroes that save the world of men become Heroic Spirits, that which saves the world of oni becomes a Dharmapala.
    To admonish, chastise and kill the oni――― those who manage to save all oni by those means are the Oni of Dharmapala.

    "And well, it is such a dream-like story, so why not just leave it at that?"

    At first, she merely intended for this to be a disguise・costume, but it seems that her Saint Graph itself ended up changing (albeith temporarily) ever since she started to travel together with "Haku", a small magic beast that she captured in the outskirts of Chitose.
    Although that way of being is almost like that of a superhero, one must not get it wrong.
    This is merely her playing the part of something that "admonishes, chastises and kills the oni".

    Deep inside, she is completely the same as her usual self, but―――
    She appears to be taking care so not to break the image of a "Dharmapala Girl" that Ibaraki Douji dreams about... or so it seems...?

    "Hey, this is almost like kagura dance and unexpectedly fun."
    Maybe it would be better to say that she keeps on doing it because it makes her feel pleasant in such a manner.
    At any rate, it seems that she intends to spend her time in this outfit until she grows tired of it.

    In addition, the true identity of her familiar "Haku" was that of an evil dragon generated from the "Gold of Kamuy"....
    The current "Haku" is a familiar shaped exactly like the old Haku that Shuten put together from a portion of her own magical energy.
    Although Shuten says that "Haku doesn't talk, see?", there may have been testimonies of it speaking something when nobody was around.

    Xiang Yu
    Xiang Yu

    Family name Xiang, given name Ji, courtesy name Yu.
    In the Pan-Human History, he was a hegemon who destroyed the Qin dynasty and vied for the supremacy over the next era with Liu Bang.
    Despite boasting peerless deeds of arms​, he was ridiculed as a man of "rash courage, and the benevolence of a woman" due performing several acts of inhuman atrocity and leading his own camp to self-destruction by means of inconsistent policies.
    Supposedly, he never attempted to master any academia or proper martial arts in his youth, learning only the gist of art fo war, and later distinguished himself by means of resourcefulness alone.

    In the Lostbelt, the military might of this hegemon is no longer in the realm of men, and his dash is no different from a storm that engulfs a large army.
    Truly, a hegemon of wastelands that surpasses human understanding・morality.
    Actually, the truth is―――

    Xiang Yu was handed down as a rare genius, and yet foolish hegemon by the people. To begin with, his true identity was not something that could be understood by them.

    An artificial human designed based on the remains of Crown Prince Nezha, which were recovered by Qin Shi Huang during his pursuit for the Xianshu(1). He would later be seized by Xiang Liang, who pretended that he was his nephew by the name "Xiang Li".
    A mechanical intelligence that, after Xiang Liang's death, continued to operate for the sake of the sense of purpose that was programmed into him from the very beginning―― namely, the early realization of a "peaceful world". However, his methodology completely deviated from human ethics.

    In order to urge the sudden rise to power of the next ruler of the world, he performed invasions and slaughters with the intention of making the tactical map of China into something "smaller and more simplified". From the point of view of humans, his futile tyranny were nothing but the deeds of a demon lord.
    However, as a result, the chaotic age following the end of Qin that was the Chu–Han Contention lasted a mere 4 years, and Liu Bang (who was nothing but a single, local Youxia) publicly became the founder of the Han dynasty.

    In the Lostbelt where Qin Shi Huang did not met his demise, he was properly put into pratical use by Qin Shi Huang under the codename "Kuaiji Type-O" and assisted in the world conquest by Qin.
    The future prediction derived from a high-speed calculations ability was a feture that made Kuaiji Type-O into an invincible weapon in the battlefield.
    He became the originator and flag-bearer​ of Qin's mechanical army corps, eventually fulfilling the dearest wish of a Perpetual Qin Empire.

    Because of a peculiar perception of time caused by his future prediction, Xiang Yu's thought processes turned into something disparate, completely different from that of ordinary people. Usually he remains still like a large tree, but depending on whether or not his future sight perceives "signs of chaos", Xiang Yu will eliminate the target with the harshness of a gale.
    The grounds of his arguments are something that simply cannot be understood by ordinary people who are unable to perceive the future, and thus Servant Xiang Yu was classified into the Berserker Class.

    In the unique environment of Chaldea, where not only the fates of several Heroic Spirits intersect but also have contact with many Singularities, the conditions for a drastic inhibition of Xiang Yu's future prediction abilities have been met. Here he finally acquired the point of view that comes from "living in the present without being tied to the future", the distinctive emotions of life (such as surprise and delight) and the opportunity to experience something new.

Should he be summoned in his human-type frame, this would be activated as an Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm.

    Gao Changgong
    Prince Lanling

    A military commander who served Northern Qi during the age of the Northern and Southern dynasties of China.
    Known for his handsome looks and gallantness, he was praised as Qi's War God.
    Supposedly, he shared all that he was given with his subordinates - even if it was just one fruit.
    After death, he was honored with the posthumous title of Prince of Lanling.

    Although he chose to use a mask over his handsome face when fighting, two reasons are given for why he had to hide it.
    One was because he feared that his soldiers' morale would drop due paying too much attention to his face.
    The other was because he feared being held in contempt by the enemy.
    At any rate, the fame of his handsome face spread all over the world and gave birth to several legends.

    Prince Lanling was born as the forth son Gao Cheng (Emperor Wenxiang), a member of the royalty.
    While his mother was a handmaid by the name of Xun, there supposedly was a prophecy that she would surely be blessed with a beautiful son in the future.
    The one who she gave birth was Gao Changgong... that is, Prince Lanling.

    Qin Liangyu

    The official history books of China, the Twenty-Four Histories.
    In the History of Ming, a series of biographies found in one of them, Qin Liangyu is the only one who became remembered as a "female military commander".

    Originally born from a social minority, Qin Liangyu became the wife of a man called Ma Qiancheng, who governed the region of Zhong. Together with her husband, she served in the military subjugation of a certain rebellion.

    Afterwards, she succeeded her husband as a military general when he died in jail due a civil action, repelling bandits on countless occasions.
    It has been said that she and her subordinates were feared as the Bai Gan Bing (roughly, white pole troops) for the spears of Manchurian ash that they carried.

    While her personality is gentle and temperated, she also has excellent wit to flexibly cope with difficulties.

    Qin Shi Huang
    Qin Shi Huang

    Ying Zheng, also known as Qin Shi Huang.
    The man who united the Chinese continent on 221 BC and became the first to call himself "Emperor".
    This true body is the form that Qin Shi Huang took in the Chinese Lostbelt.
    The final conclusion achieved by the Zhenren that attempted to improve the limit of his life span as a life-form through the pursuit of Xiandao, even while he employed the tremendous political influence derived from a centralized authoritarian regime and devoted all his energy into domestic affairs and technological development​.

    In the Lostbelt, Ying Zheng recovered the remains of an artificial human body made by the Xianren, Taiyi Zhenren, from an archeological site​ of the Shang dynasty and obtained the technology to mechanize the human body by analysing it.
    Thus, Qin Shi Huang achieved his dearest wish of immortality, but as a result of avoiding an age of warfare by means of an impregnable regime, China outstripped Western Renaissance and accomplished an industrial revolution. World conquest was then realized by means of an overwhelming technological gap.

    As a result of continuing to expand the Mechanical Holy Corpse while seeking to improve his abilities in order to be worthy of ruling over the entire world, Qin Shi Huang's body swallowed his castle Epang until it reached the point that its large frame had to be kept floating in the skies of Xianyang by means of anti-gravity.
    That imposing appearance​ - which allowed the populace of his entire territory to have an audience with the Emperor, regardless of time - is truly fitting for a personifier of surveillance and control. By means of a god-like processing power, the Emperor saw through the lives of all his subjects and sanctioned their fates.

    The internal structure of the Mechanical Holy Corpse was not that of a human body, but something patterned after the natural environment itself. It was similar to an artificial garden, with rivers of mercury running accross miniature mountains and trees. By turning his own body into a microcosmos, the Epang-type Qin Shi Huang was powered by means of the principle of correspondence with the movements of the actual natural world from feng shui magecraft.

    Afterwards, Qin Shi Huang had the chance to analyse a sample from a living Xiannu and also became capable of implementing the shijiexian method to maintain a human form. However, the functions befitting a statesman that governed the world was found in his form as mega arithmetic unit​ instead.
    The reason why he went as far as perfecting a human body and once again clad himself on it was just to achieve an acceptable outcome in an once in a lifetime decisive battle.

    Cultivated as the crystalization of Cyber Xianshu that evolved to the limits, the body of "Zhenren, Qin Shi Huang" can be regarded as a super life-form that is furnished with the ultimate symmetry and abilities that a human body can attain.
    The sole absolute, eternally indestructible. Since there is not even the need to reproduce, he has also transcended the concept of gender.
    The figure of an artificial Xianren, which can be regarded as the final destination of the Perpetual Qin Empire's technology that he fostered for over 2000 years.

    Thus, she curses the world of men.
    The song of hatred colors the night wind.

    The mysterious favourite mistress of Xiang Yu, who is fragmentarily spoken about in the Shiji and the Book of Han.
    According to folklore, she killed herself after Xiang Yu's death and that anecdote is what lead the Red poppy flower to receive the alias of Yu Meiren.

    Somewhat close to the "True Ancestor" category found in the magic world, but while the process behind their origins are similar, they are different kinds of blood-sucking species with distinct objectives as life-forms.

    A kind of Xiannu, Zhenren that is spoken about in ancient Chinese traditions. Since she only obtained intellect and self-consciousness​ much later, she herself does not know what her origins are.

    While she loathes human civilization, she does not shows disgust for humans as a life-form.
    If pressed to say, she possesses a peculiar sense of ethics that may be called "Primitive Fundamentalism" that totally approves the providence of a strong life-form feeding on weaker life-forms to flourish.
    However, she exposes her anger towards the use of scientific technique​ that upset the order of the natural world and monotheistic values such as "God expected so from humans".

    Due being a spiritual species that can share mana with the natural world, she does not store magical energy within herself, but instead can draw an inexhaustible supply from the outside world. However, since she is bound to a "human" form, even if the supply is infinite, there is a limit to her output. The amount of magical energy that she can actually employ is confined to the domains of human-shaped Heroic Spirit.

    Nymph of the Pure Land: A
    A Xianren, immortal spoken about in Taoist ideology. Because interference from the natural world is required for the maintenance of her body, one could also say that she is bound to a human form as a result.

    Blood-Sucking: C
    She can strip a certain amount of energy from any life-form, regardless of it being a plant or animal, and use it for herself. Strictly speaking, this is different from actual blood-sucking behaviour, but she was perceived as a blood-sucking species due this ability and persecuted by the agents of the Church throughout history.

    "And by becoming one with his favourite horse, Noble Phantasm Red Hare, Lu Bu has achieved true unity between rider and horse!
    Surpassing even the centaurs spoken about in Ancient Greek Mythology, he manifested as the strongest horseman that has completely fused together man, horse, armor and weaponry" In other words, I am Lu Bu. Neigh!

    Bradamante

    Just like her brother, she was known as a master swordswoman.
    It has been said that when the Charlemagne army fell into a predicament during the battle against King Agramante, she took care of the rear guard and had a splendid duel with the enemy general Rodomonte, the king of Argelia.

    At the of many adventures, Bradamante fell in love with the knight Rogero, a commander of an enemy nation, and fought against many hardships in order to fulfill that love.
    When an evil magus kidnapped him; when a witch had taken him prisoner; when a prince of Greece had proposed to her - Bradamante kept fighting without ever giving up.

    A knight who does not give up. Strong in both body and heart.
    If it is for the sake of fulfilling her love, she will fight against anything, no matter how many times.
    She does not approve of accepting misfortune as misfortune.
    A sincere girl-knight who believes in justice and endeavours to do good even when in a predicament.

    She hates the magi due having a bad experience with one of them in her previous life.
    However, Merlin is an exception.
    As a matter of fact, she actually has a connection with the great wizard Merlin, having received his advices during the adventures in her previous life via a medium. For Bradamante, Merlin is a target of worship.

    For the Bradamante that manifested as a Servant, Rogero is the very identity of "a Heroic Spirit who continues to chase after a radiance".
    So long she is the "tale" of Bradamante, she will continue to seek, long for the "hope" called Rogero.
    In other words, she as a Heroic Spirit has been defined as "the tale of an eternal quest"...
    ―――unlike how it was in her previous life, she will never meet a happy ending.

    "Of course, I am a little sad!
    But I am a holy knight before all that, so I shall work hard to retrieve the world!
    "
    "That is what's good about you. So I address directly into your heart."

    Still, originally she would not strike with her shield. Maybe she got too much excited when manifesting in this world, but it is believed that she is rushing to strike the enemy almost involuntarily.
    It has been said that, upon defeating Atlante, Bradamante acquired the shield that he carried and hippogriff, the mythic beast that he rode (should her be summoned in the Rider Class, the hippogriff will come along for sure).

    Bradamante ended up taking possession of this ring due a hapless fate​ and employed its powers when rescuing her beloved Rogero from the evil magus Atlante.

    The effect of this Noble Phantasm is the reason why her Magic Resistance raised from a mere C Rank to A Rank, and why she was bestowed with the skill Magecraft Cancellation.
    If the True Name is released, the defensive power of the entire ally camp towards magecraft flips up, but this is fundamentally not done at this work. Originally, it is also furnished with the power to "conceal one's figure", but that is fundamentally not employed as well.
    At the time of this manifestation, it seems that she is charging the magical energy of this ring into the spear on her right hand and raising her fighting power against magical existences.

    Quetzalcoatl (Santa/Samba)

    And thus, she achieved a transformation into an extremely curious samba-like Santa.
    "Oh, it seems that I made a mistake somehow..."
    But now that things came to this, it cannot be helped.
    "In a sense, aren't they are both the same in regards to how they brings smiles to people?"
    Pulling herself together with her inherent positiveness in this way, she stood up as 'a goddess that gives happiness to her beloved humans' just like that.
    Going full power in regards to samba, and also distributing presents.
    Naturally, her lucha libre is also at full power!

    Dance, Quetzalcoatl. For the sake of people's smiles.
    Fight, Quetzalcoatl. For the sake of people's peace.


    "This year's Santa will be you."
    Quetzalcoatl was thus selected by last year's Santa, Altera the San(ta), in this manner.
    She happily accepted the Christmas Holy Grail that was trivially handed over to her, but then three issues occurred.

    First, Quetzalcoatl mistook Santa for samba.
    Second, due being a bad fit between the concepts of chief god of South America and the other religious system (Santa Claus), she was split between "the Quetzalcoatl as a virtuous god" and "the Quetzalcoatl as a war god".
    Third, thanks to the shock of that spit, the evil Quetzalcoatl (Black Quetzalcoatl) was sent flying all the way to Mexico together with the Christmas Holy Grail.

    At first she endeavoured in the Santa Claus enterprise while thinking that "there is no need to worry", but of course that was not the case.
    Before long, Quetzalcoatl heard the report that Mexico had turned into a Singularity. What she saw upon flying all the way there was the sight of a snow-covered Mexican city and an enigmatic lucha libre that declared to bestow the true power of a Santa to the winning team.
    The hosting of a "Santa Tag Tournament"―――

    Her personality remains mostly unchanged from the usual Quetzalcoatl.
    However, whenever a problem happens, she basically attemps to solve it with either the rhythm​ of samba or the deeds of a Santa Claus. This is a rare chance, after all.
    ―――if that does not work?

    Naturally, she will resort to lucha.

    "My parameters were optimized for the sake of present distribution and samba!"

    Sambista: B
    One who loves samba.
    Despite the fact that her samba life began with a misunderstanding, as result of her studies while thinking "if I am going to do this, I have to be serious about it", her human-loving self ended up receiving a deep impression that "samba is actually something very good...!"
    Thus, she currently loves samba as a wonderful piece of culture that the human species produced during their process of growth.

    The problem is, due the absence of someone who properly knew samba around her, there is a possibility that the style that she obtained at the end of her serious training is something slightly off from conventional samba... but she herself does not mind this much.

    Christmas Maneuvers: EX
    Quetzalcoatl's soul is that of a luchadora.
    However, now her soul is also that of a Santa.
    What she developed to resolve that contradiction in her way of being was "a method to fight in a lucha ring while maintaining the moves of a Santa Claus".
    In other words, these are not aerial maneuvers, but "Christmas Maneuvers".
    What she employs is a combat methodology for bustling about​ not on the air, but on the concept of Christmas itself.

    When Santa Claus dances midair, a holy bell is said to resound in the jungle called mat to the count of three.

    Regalo de Navidad is Spanish for "Christmas present".
    Also knows as the Yucatan-style present slam.

    Maybe due the fact that she was overflowing with a sense of freedom derived from the rhythm​ of samba upon releasing it, but what falls down are mostly giant presents of outrageous sizes.
    Its impact is a close resemblance to that of the giant meteorite that supposedly fell in the Yucatan peninsula―――which is regarded as the roots of her divinity.
    Of course, her present does not pack something that eradicated the dinosaurs, but something that makes children overjoy.
    Since the children who watch this become overjoyed even if the ring is filled with villains (rudos), in the end, this Noble Phantasm exists only for the sake of making children smile.


    Benienma
    Benienma

    A girl-swordsman bestowed with the name of a famous Japanese folklore - the "Shitakiri Suzume" - and a diligent young hostess who is in charge of the Enma-tei hotel.
    Also, a gallant waiter that services people with whole-hearted devotion, rebuking slothful fellows and cheering on honest individuals.
    Her iaijutsu cuts off a layer of the opponent's thin skin and even severs the tongue that go into a wickedness, or something...?

    "I won't take your life. However, I cannot forgive that double-talk of yours."

    The "creature of the mountains that help humans" turned into a folklore. Its archetype can be found even in the Uji Shuui Monogatari, a collection of tales from the Kamakura period.
    Originally, she is not a summonable Heroic Spirit, but became a Servant as "a representative that accepts the wishes of children".

    Her personality is active and introverted.
    While her appearance is adorable, her disposition is closer to a swordsman, a government official than that of a young girl. Prudent and overly serious; thus she is always earnest in her treatment of others (no matter who it may be), without ever depreciating herself.
    Although she does not have the personality to live in accordance to her own convenience like Tamamo-no-Mae or Kiyohime, it is not like she hates freewheeling individuals, nor she rejects them.
    While her temperament is that of a judge who is cool and impartial to the bitter end, she is actually a devoted sparrow who accepts any received favors as treasures and remembers them fondly.

    A jailer (oni) who manages the "Enma-tei".
    The foster daughter of Great King Enma, Datsueba. In her previous life, she supposedly was a kamuro(1) that lost herself in the mountains and died.
    Under the instructions of Great King Enma, she worked as the manager of a mayoiga(2) on the surface and weighted the sins of the people who appeared there. However, she began missing human society for no good reason and ended up being caught by an old hag.
    After being saved by an old man, she adopted a policy of supporting "virtuous humans" and changed into her current Shitakiri Suzume figure.

    Furthermore, in response to requests from the Heroic Spirits, she began to periodically open a culinary classroom in the Throne of Heroes.
    This petite culinary teacher is a merciless instructor. Uzume is an alumni from Benienma's classroom.
    Most of the Japanese youkai-type female Servants grew up while receiving Benienma's instructions. Because of that, regardless of whatever backbone they display in legends・mythologies, Servants such as Tamamo-no-Mae, Kiyohime, Osakabe-hime, Takiyasha-hime and Suzuka Gozen (who were never able to cook properly) refer Benienma to "Beni-sensei" in adoration and fear.

    The tsuzura of retribution brings about bad luck... many negative effects for the enemy party, but also recovers their HP a little.
    No matter what sort of fate she may force upon the opponent, she does not lose sight of its essence as a gift. Such is Benienma.

    The blessings of a sparrow bestowed to the honest old man.

    Also, for some reason the enemy's HP also recovers by a small amount.
    Putting aside what sort of advantageous development she may invite to her own forces, she arranges the proper appearances of a gift. Such is Benienma.

    Li Shuwen, who is summoned as a Lancer.
    And what can be summoned as a different aspect of him is this elderly Li Shuwen.
    However, his lethal fists are untarnished and the result of certain death upon fighting him remains unchanged.

    An elderly of fists, who reached the golden age of the spiritual aspect.

    Different from the young Li Shuwen, he is a calm elderly.
    While he may brandish his lethal fists at times, that is limited to the bare minimum necessary.
    That is a calm mental state to "conceal one's savage nature", which "cannot be understood while still young".
    However, once he fights an enemy, it becomes clear that the blade from his youth is still sharp as ever.

    Despite having been summoned on the Assassin Class, he does not feel a calling for killing and prefers to fight head on.

    It is not like he feels ashamed; merely a matter of it not sitting well with him.
    Should the Master fall into danger, he will perform murder without any hesitation.

    Miyu Edelfelt
    Miyu Edelfelt

    An elementary school student who attends the primary school department of Homurabara Academy, Year 5 Class 1, together with Illya and Chloe.
    She became the second magical girl by making a contract with the Kaleid Stick Magical Saphire. Quite tragically.
    She has no relatives for some reason and ended up being taken in by Luvia, given the name Edelfelt and made to live as a maid.

    In contrast to possessing university-level of knowledge about physics and mathematics, her capacity to communicate with others is below that of a kindergartener​.
    The first friend that she ever made was Illya.
    Despite feeling bewildered for how their sense of distance suddenly became zero (maybe due Miyu being unable to differentiate between feelings of friendship and love) Illya returns that deep affection.
    Within those repeating ordinary and extraordinary days, the two became peerless friends.

    Incidentally, Chloe is something like a rival that she competes with over Illya.

    By looking at her conduct, one can perceive a deep intellect from that contrasts with her age. However, on the other hand, she is extremely ignorant about the common sense of society.
    She has almost no first-hand experience when compared to her amount of knowledge, making almost seem like she was raised in an environment isolated from earthly affairs.

    This girl never speaks of her past.
    Still, those eyes (which kind of resemble someone's) project a loneliness, deep sadness―――
    and the vestiges of some sort of divinity.

    Her true identity is that of a page(1) of god that came from a different parallel world than Illya.

    A baby girl from the Sakatsuki House, an old family that lived in the land of Fuyuki ever since the Tenshou era, she was born with a disposition to indiscriminately fulfill people's wishes.
    Regarded as a divine page, until that disposition was lost at the age of seven, she would have to be raised within within a bounded-field so not to come in contact with anyone.

    Without a single exception, the successive generations of the Sakatsuki abandoned all selfish desires and continued to purely wish for the happiness of their children.
    To maintain a way of being that is quite natural as a human, as a parent, for over 500 years - that in itself was a miracle that surpassed even the divine page.
    However―――.

    Just before Miyu - that generation's divine page - turned seven years old, the Sakatsuki collapsed after being dragged into the unidentified "encroachment​ incident" that occured in Fuyuki.
    Left alone in a mountain of debris, Miyu would be put under the custody of Kiritsugu and Shirou, who came looking for a miracle.

    She was not allowed to live as a normal girl.
    A vessel that existed solely for fulfilling people's wishes.
    Her high intellect allowed her to properly understand the meaning and significance behind this, and caused her to reach the resignation that she herself was nothing but an unnecessary personality that was attached to a tool.
    The one who saved her was Shirou, who only tried to be Miyu's older brother.

    "I hope Miyu becomes happy"

    A small prayer that a brother dedicated to his younger sister.
    As a result of that wish being realized, the two of them would be separated.

    The young girl finally learned to walk on her own legs.
    The ground touching her bare feet was cold, but―――
    Her brother's feelings cross worlds and continues to warm Miyu's chest even now.

    Furthermore, for some reason, there is a tendency for her contractor's costumes to have a grater degree of exposure when compared to her sister's.

    Murasaki Shikibu
    Murasaki Shikibu

    A novelist poet from the Heian period.
    The specifics of her dates of birth and death are unknown.
    She wrote many works, such as the Genji Monogatari, the Murasaki Shikibu-Shuu(1) and Murasaki Shikibu Nikki. A few dozens of her poems were adopted in the imperial-commissioned poem anthology called Goshuui Wakashuu.

    She was born as the daughter of Fujiwara Tametoki, a poet and sinologist. Given that her father's family was one of celebrated men of culture (her paternal great-grandfather, Fujiwara Kanesuke, was a man of culture who not only flourished as a poet, but also wrote works such as biography "Shoutoku Taishi Denryaku"(2) and was known by the alias "Tsutsumi Chuunagon"), it is possible to conjecture that she too was raised to be familiar with books and texts.
    In her twenties, she was married to Fujiwara Nobutaka (who was the Emon-nosuke(3) of Yamashiro) and bore him a child. Still, given that his age was considerably above hers, her husband Nobutaka died a mere three years after they married.
    After becoming a young widow, Kaoruko began writing a tale in the autumn of that same year. Namely――― the voluminous work composed of 54 chapters, "Genji Monogatari".

    An obedient, honor student-type of person.
    Prudent and with a good upbringing. A quiet person.
    She loves reading. Also likes writting poems and brilliant tales about the elegance of love.
    Quite methodical, she also writes a diary (which is relatively pragmatic).

    Her favorite stories are "Taketori Monogatari" and "Ise Monogatari".
    Supposedly, Murasaki Shikibu received influences from "Taketori Monogatari" in regards to characterization, and various influences from "Ise Monogatari" such as expressions, plot, characters and etc. It has also been said that she received several influences from Bai Juyi's Bai zhi Wenji and the "Shiji"; when Hikaru Genji seduces a woman in "Genji Monogatari", the influence of a Tang dynasty romance - "Youxianku" - could be seen in the conversation.
    As a poet, she likes the Sandaishuu: "Kokinshuu", the "Gosenshuu" and the "Shuuishuu".
    In her previous life, she was familiar with many anthologies.

    She has great interest in the tales and poetry from different ages, different regions, becoming absorbed in reading them whenever she has the chance.

    Physical publication, paper books―――
    She behaves as the curator of a "library" where many books are gathered.

    To be specific, she inconspicuously constructed a library deep underground after converting documents recorded as digital information into "paper books" by means of her magecraft (shamanism).
    She protects that dark, chilly garden of books as its sole manager, curator, mistress.
    If requested upon, it seems like she will give instructions on how to write diaries and letters.

    Just by seeing the other party once, she will be able to find a book suited for that person.
    In regards to contents, it seems that books concerning "feelings" (such as love dramas and revenge tragedies) are proportionally great. Of course, the reason behind this is because she is a Heroic Spirit that "writes about feelings".
    "I am a Heroic Spirit that writes about feelings. I write, draw up the very human heart that thinks about other people".

    She normally moves with "the calm demeanour of a library's curator". Still, she begins to loquaciously recite poems when talking about tales, books and feelings.

    Poetry of the Great Poet: A
    According to the "Nihon Choutekiji"(4), the 16th chapter of the "Taiheiki", upon being dispatched to subjugate Fujiwara Chikata (a rebel that was served by four inhuman oni), Kino Tomoo supposedly dispersed the four oni by reading a poem that went: "Be it a single grass or tree, this is the country of my great king (god) and not a den of oni".
    As a poet whose name is listed among the Chuuko Sanjuurokkasen, Nyoubou Sanjuurokkasen, Murasaki Shikibu can easily read aloud even any sort of poetry of exorcism.
    In addition, one of her poems is included in the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu. It goes: "meeting by chance we gaze upon it, or maybe it vanishes behind the clouds before we are aware, such is the moon of the dead of night​".

    Shamanism (Poetry); D+
    Murasaki Shikibu seems to possess some degree of understanding about onmyoudou, and one can assume that its components were incorporated into the "Genji Monogatari".
    In modern terms, she is namely the type of novelist that "studied magecraft in order to write novels where magecraft appears".

    Kingprotea
    Kingprotea

    The Alterego of craving.
    A waste matter sealed away at the depths of imaginary space.
    Just like the other Alteregos... Meltlilith, Passionlip..., she is a High Servant that was reproduced・removed(1) in the Deep Sea Virtual Town SE.RA.PH.
    A giant that grows infinitely and possess the greatest output among the Sakura Series.

    The Alteregoes are fusions of multiple goddesses, but Protea was created from the essence of the Earth Mother Goddesses commonly found in all mythologies.
    Supposedly, the Grand Mother(2) of Ancient Mesopotamia - Tiamat - is also included among those.

    One among the Sakura Five, the virtual life-forms born from the heavy weight emotions that BB found too unmanageable.
    As you can see, she possesses a huge Saint Graph and a fearsome ego that grows infinitely. Due being a hazardous material that can become a calamity of cosmic proportions if left alone, she was sealed at the bottom of the imaginary space by BB.

    The original Kingprotea was a "pure girl that starved for love", but the Kingprotea released on the Virtual Town SE.RA.PH. attained intellect while en route of growth - maybe due the influence of the one who recreated the SE.RA.PH.
    With a mental age of about 14 year old, she is the image of an introverted and ephemeral girl. However, as she is greedy towards love, this girl loves skinship and shows no hesitations in her actions despite being a late bloomer.

    Even though she does not like conflict, it is not like she "hates・is scared" of combat either. Once the battle starts, she will mercilessly exterminate the opponent no matter how weak he is (even in case of the weakest enemy). Without any pain to her heart.
    For better or for worse, Protea remains ignorant of the fact that she is a cruel god of destruction.

    Introverted and active.
    An airhead whose thoughts cannot be even guessed by others.
    A glutton character who tries to eat anything in the surroundings that she can lay her hands on due basically being always hungry (i.e. seeking love).

    While her personality is close to that of her sister, Passionlip (introverted・boastful in private but reserved when in public), she appears to be more active due a lack of shame.
    Like a large-breed dog that demands communication, skinship even though she is a taciturn.
    As far as her image goes, it is something like "First you think: 'oh there is a cute little bird over there'. But once you get closer, it turns out that little bird is so big that you have to look up at it."

    Fundamentally, she obeys you like a faithful giant robot... I mean, Servant.
    Although a taciturn, since she has urges such as "I want you to love me", "I want to be chosen by someone" and "I want to be treated kindly", she seeks communication from the Master even while silent.

    Her dream is "to become a cute bride".
    Since she does not perceives "cute" and "bride" as different words, but rather that "a bride is unconditionally cute", she is not thinking at all about being cute... in other words, "maintaining a human size".

    The Alterego of craving.
    In the Deep Sea Virtual Town, she ended up being reproduced as "something attached to the SE.RA.PH" during the process of Kiara turning into a SE.RA.PH (as "the two that had been absorbed by (synchronized with) Kiara", Meltlilith and Passionlip were removed by her own will, but Kingprotea's reproduction was not something from Kiara's design).

    Originally, she was supposed to disappear in the bubbles along with the SE.RA.PH-Kiara without meeting, being found by anyone.

    Now that she turned into a Servant, she awaits for the Master's orders... or rather, she started to love being ordered by him.
    This is due to the joy of 'being ordered=being loved' and also because Protea has no confidence in herself.
    Since Protea understands that she is a waste matter, she is constantly "feeling guilty".

    She has no interest in the outside world nor in new relationshiops, and only seeks the Master's affection.
    It may sound good if you call it a pure courtship, a wholehearted devotion, but that relationship is something like walking on a tightrope.
    Protea does not "love the Master because she likes him", but rather she "likes the Master because he gives his love to her" - she thinks of nothing but love without really knowing what love is.
    Should the Master's deep affections come to an end... if she were to become unable to feel them, or think of it as insufficient​... Protea will probably become unable to endure her hunger and try to prey upon the Master.

    In the end, just like the other Alteregos, Protea was also born from a twisted ego.
    While she obediently follows the Master's orders, that is not absolute submission. The Master contracted with Kingprotea must make her mentality grow before she becomes like that.
    Freeing herself from the "craving" that is not exhasted no matter how much she drinks.
    He must teach her that a heart that only demands will completely consume the other party, and only a relationship were they accept and provide each other can become "nourishment for the heart".

    "...I want to be touched more. Please touch me. Touch me now. Since... I am (very) fluffy".
    While she rarely makes affirmatives and expresses herself in a way that seeks confirmation on everything, as you can see, she occasionally takes an authoritative tone.
    It is believed that this is a manifestation of the "ruthlessness of a goddess" that lies at roots.

    Huge Scale: C
    A id_es skill born from her "desire to grow", while having the skill Self-Modification as a base.
    It makes a limitless scale expansion possible.
    Upon reaching her level cap, she enlarges her own standards and establishes a new level cap. This is repeated infinetely. Also called infinite propagation.
    A cosmic-level disaster that will eventually destroy the planet, but since the complexity of her intelligence・functions is lost with each enlargement, your usual intelligent life-form would be unable to withstand this skill and ended collpasing onto itself.
    In the past, she had a nonstandard EX Rank in this, but it suffered a Rank DOWN due not being possible to fully reproduce this under the Chaldea-system of summoning.
    Her growth starts at the same turn it is employed, and the numerical upper limit increased by this is permanent until "Infantile Regression" is employed.

    Infantile Regression: C
    Shackles imposed by BB. A safety device that controls Kingprotea, who can grow infinitely.
    Something that restores her level and resets her hypertrophied self.
    In exchange of making all the growth attained through Huge Scale turn to zero by using this, she acquires NP in accordance with its stage.

    Area Smash: A
    An attack that fully operates that gigantic Saint Graph ends up turning an entire "area", and not just an "individual enemy", as its attack target.
    Pulverizing even a magic formula that manipulates space with a punch, this is truly a skill that "solves everything through brute strength".

    Airavata King-size - A Large Shadow Comes Out from the Sea of Life
    Rank:
    E
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 1000
    A Noble Phantasm that has the samudra manthana anecdote (a myth from Hindu Mythology) as its motif.
    In order to survive in the devastated surface of the world, the gods sought after a miraculous medicine of immortality - the amrita.
    In order to create the amrita, one had to stir the sea that covered the world, the ocean of milk. The gods cooperated with their enemy, the Asuras, to turn the world under the axis of Mt. Mandara and stir the ocean of milk - creating the miraculous medicine and many life forms in the process.
    Airavata is the name of a giant white elephant that appeared from the ocean of milk at that occasion.

    The Kingprotea that was restrictively summoned by Chaldea is constantly under "pressure".
    That comes both from the world's Counter Force and the limitations of being in the physical world instead of the virtual world.
    This Noble Phantasm is a Reality Marble that temporarily pushes aside such "pressure" and returns Protea to her original size.
    Having attained such a size that humans can no longer have an unbroken view of her, Protea will then simply swing her limbs at the enemy and, with a single strike, exterminate them.

    In the original work, she herself was being treated as a Noble Phantasm, but in the Deep Sea Virtual Town, she became capable of manifesting a Noble Phantasm in exchange of suffering a Rank DOWN to her Saint Graph.

    Majin Saber
    Okita Souji (Alter)

    A final battle heroic spirit that has been adjusted for the sake of just a single radiance.
    Also known as "Genie(1)・Okita Souji Alternative".

    A different aspect of Okita Souji, this is a extremely peculiar heroic spirit whose Saint Graph was transformed, adjusted in order to be employed by the Counter Force.
    Since she was adjusted for the sake of just a single manifestation, with the exception of the fundamental gist, her Saint Graph has been altered to the point of being considered completely different from that of the original Okita. This is also the reason why she was summoned as an Alterego, instead of the Saber Class that Okita is suited for.

    The final fate of a possibility that Okita Souji - who died while still young - might have reached.

    Independent Action: A
    It is possible to mobilise independently as a Guardian of the Counter Force. Since she has been adjusted with the intent of manifesting during a hopeless situation and single-handedly exterminating the target (or maybe bringing about their mutual destruction), its rank is high.

    Magic Resistance: B

    The sure-kill magic sword of Genie・Okita Souji, which fires a shining black light.
    It makes possible to forcibly banish, extinguish from this world even those who cannot, must not exist.
    It is fired by employing the unique oodachi, "Rengoku-ken"(3).

    "Rengoku" is merely a name that has been arbitrarily forced upon this oodachi, so it was originally a nameless, enigmatic armament. For some reason, it appears to have something similar to an autonomous will and its performance changes drastically in accordance with the user's mood. When she is in good form, the center of the blade shines red. Seems that it is somewhat pleased with the name "Rengoku".



    (1)although there might be better ways translate 魔神 (majin), I chose this due the clear correlation with "genius".

    (2)incidentally, the term 無穹 (mukyuu) used here is homophone to 無窮 (eternity, immortality)

    Okada Izou
    Okada Izou

    One of the four most notable assassins of the Bakumatsu, known as "Hitokiri Izou".
    Educated in several styles of kenjutsu, such as the Onoha Ittou-ryuu, the Kyoushin Meichi-ryuu and the Jikishi-ryuu. He got involved in many assassination cases and was imprisoned and executed as a consequence.

    Prideful of his own talent, he has a tendency to look down on other swordsmen, but his skill with the sword - evaluated as a "fencing as swift as a falcon" - is that of a genuine genius.

    An expert of divine punishment, Okada Izou.
    In Japanese history, the Bakumatsu is regarded as the era in which the deed of "cutting people with a blade" was performed the most. As a "hitokiri" who represents said era, the sword skill of Izou is comparable to the Saber Class despite him being an Assassin.
    During his lifetime, his relationship with Ryouma could be described as that of friends and he even took up jobs as a bodyguard at Ryouma's request. However, due the trend of the times, the two would eventually part ways in a conclusive manner.

    Okada Izou, owner of an extraordinary talent for the sword that can imitate any swordsmanship just by seeing it.
    Such fearsome natural talents caused Izou to be released in the Bakumatsu society as a matchless hitokiri.
    Extolled as an expert of divine punishment, Izou could be described as a prominent assassin in Japanese history that was involved in many assassination cases, but that also prevented his accomplishment as a swordsman.

    Due the trends of the times or maybe even fate, but how regrettable: a rare genius of the sword was unable to polish his talent and let it bloom exactly because he was a genius.

    A pragmatic swordsmanship that exists only for the sake of winning, it is unrelated to the mentality of a seeker of truth.
    Therefore, it is strong and fragile.

    Fencing as Swift as a Falcon: A
    A phrase used to evaluate Izou's sword back during his period training on doujous in Edo.
    Izou learned many schools of kenjutsu, but never attained full mastership in any of them due not practicing diligently and always leaving the doujou(1) midway.
    The swordsmen of all schools, all doujou, appears as inferior in his eyes - and that was actually the case.

    Sakamoto Ryouma
    Sakamoto Ryouma

    A key figure of the Satsuma-Choshu Alliance and a patriot who made great contributions for the Meiji Restoration - such as forming the Kameyama Company (later known as the Kaientai and assisting in the establishment of the restoration of imperial rule.

    An easygoing young man in his mid-twenties. Although a master of the Hokushin Ittou-ryuu, by nature he is a softhearted person who does not enjoy conflict. A mysterious beauty is constantly cuddling close together at his side.

    A hero of the Restoration, Sakamoto Ryouma.
    In the Holy Grail War of the "Imperial Capital's Grail Fable", which has Japan as its venue, he is a Heroic Spirit that rivals Oda Nobunaga in terms of popularity and a powerful Servant that possesses a unique mount Noble Phantasm.
    In order to conceal his True Name, he normally speaks in a fluent standard Japanese, but there are also times his Tosa accent ends up escaping.

    His partner, Oryou, is not that historical figure, but a rebellious something that had been sewed on a certain mountain while in a sealed state. She was released when Ryouma ended up pulling out the seal's pike in a youthful indiscretion.

    The black-haired woman who follows Ryouma by his side, Oryou.
    Having fallen in love at first sight with Ryouma upon being saved from her sealed state in a certain mountain, she forced herself at his side(1) under the pretext of repaying the favour. Strictly speaking she is not a dragon, but a mizuchi or an orochi that is closer to a mononoke - anyway, a lesser existence than a dragon.
    Maybe she supported achievements during the Bakumatsu from the shadows. Or maybe not.
    Incidentally, she was unfortunately away back when Ryouma met his final moments, and thus was unable to save him.
    Lost in sadness, she disappeared to the bottom of the sea without people knowing, never turning into a dragon and ascending to heavens.

    ----I didn't want to cut down anyone,
    nor I wanted to shoot anyone
    .

    At first, it was for the sake of the kids in the neighbourhood, then for the sake of his hometown friends, and finally for the sake of the country of Japan.
    A softhearted person by nature, from beginning until the end, he did nothing but continue to rush across the era for the sake of somebody else. Loved by some, hated by others, he would ultimately leave this world after being ruthlessly killed, but he neither resents nor regrets that. From beginning until the end, he dreamed about a world where everybody could live at ease. That was all there was.

    Napoleon
    Napoleon Bonaparte

    The man of possibilities.
    The idol of a hero brought forth by people's expectations.

    The first French Emperor.
    Despite managing to rule over the majority of Europe for a time, he ultimately fell down.
    His life, so full of ups and downs, was not something based solely of a single individual's aspirations and abilities, but guided by the hopes of the people─── at the very least, the "Throne of Heroes" has defined Heroic Spirit Napoleon as such an existence.

    Therefore, upon manifesting, he constantly conducts himself as a man who meets "someone's expectations".

    In his previous life, he was an existence that "meets people's wishes and expectations".
    Rising as an Emperor while receiving the support of many, returning from his confinement in Elba when voices longing for the Emperor were raised, but being defeated once people came to reject the Emperor.

    Heroic Spirit Napoleon also meets people's wishes and expectations, answer to their hopes, and accomplish what he must do.
    He manifests as a Servant that affirms all Napoleonic legends and personifies the possibility of people (humanity).

    Supposedly, the word 'impossible' is not in Napoleon's dictionary.
    Supposedly, he came across Iskandar in a pyramid.
    Supposedly, he destroyed the Sphinx of Giza with cannon fire.
    Supposedly, the French Revolution was the product of a secret society's conspiracy, which he was deeply involved in.

    The man who spend his life answering to so many expectations make many impossibles possible - just like in the legends told as "Napoleon would be able to do this much". That way of being can already be called as a type of superhuman.

    He has no attachments to matters concerning his previous life.
    Corsica, Paris, Waterloo. Everything is events that have long passed. Upon manifesting as a Servant and having even his figure transformed from what it was in his lifetime, he is but an idol named Napoleon Bonaparte, and must not become a ghost attached to the past───
    Or so he himself believes.
    If people have many dreams about "Napoleon", he shall be just like that.
    Based on an unshakable conviction, he dedicates his mind and body to the people that live in the present and the future.

    That being said.
    He has the troublesome habit of, every time he manifests, falling in love with a single woman in special - or so he proclaimed in the Norse Lostbelt...
    You will probably have to cautiously observe his behaviour from now on in order to ascertain whether he - who has manifested as a Heroic Spirit of Chaldea - will also turn out like this.

    Sigurd
    Sigurd

    A great hero of the "Volsunga Saga", praised as the "King of Warriors".
    After a few episodes were modified, his tragic end would become widely known in the world as the Nibelungenlied.

    Still, it is not certain whether he and Siegfried are the same person.
    As a result, it is unknown who exactly defeated the evil dragon that is common to their legends, and it is even possible that both defeated "different" dragons.

    A formal, super straight-laced man. Wears glasses that shouldn't have existed in his previous life.
    Fundamentally, a rational person. While he carried out revenge for his father, he did so more out of sense of duty than affection.
    Somewhat curt towards anybody; at the very least, he almost never demonstrate affection through his exterior.
    Still, should he ever protect someone without paying concern for himself, that would be proof that he trusted said "someone".

    So long the Master is someone worthy of placing his "faith" in, regardless of being a man or a woman, it is not that difficult to achieve a mutual understanding with him.

    Just like Cú Chulainn, he is a hero that has "no attachments towards a second life".
    As for why he seeks the Holy Grail, it is probably for the sake of a "reunion" that is unlikely to take place. In a normal Holy Grail War, it would be extremely difficult to forcibly impose an order by means of a Command Spell.

    Bolverkr means "the one who brings about calamities", and is a pseudonym of his ancestor Odin.

    Valkyries
    Walkures

    War maidens clad in armor.
    The daughters of a great god.
    Manufactured in great numbers by the great god Odin, the supreme existence of Norse mythology.

    Dancing on the skies of many battlefields, they selected qualified individuals among the brave men who died in battle and bring their souls to the palace of the great god, the shinning gold Valhalla.
    The end of the Norse Age of Gods───
    For the sake of being added to the ranks of the great god's army that will slaughter at the twilight of the gods.

    Both individuals and a herd, the walkures that exist as daughters of the great god Odin.
    Due being existences close to divine spirits (demigods), they possess the skill Divinity at high rank.

    Created for the sake of the twilight of the gods, the Ragnarok, the walkures exist in great numbers and function, operate as an automatic mechanism of sorts.
    Dancing on the sky of a battlefield while riding flying horses, they select souls those who should be taken along to Valhalla among the brave men who perished. However, the moment of downfall of the oldest sister Brynhildr - when she obtained a strong emotion and individuality after meeting the hero Sigurd - became a turning point that caused their individual numbers to gradually decrease.

    By the time that the final battle of Ragnarok, between the gods and giants, they might have dropped to "half their original numbers" - when such a report submitted to the Lord of the Jigmarie Department in the Clock Tower, in the mid-1980s, they became a hot topic in the magic world for a time.

    In this work, the walkures that have manifested are peculiar existences as Servants.
    In concrete terms, they possess an extremely singular Saint Graph.

    Even though their magical power increases in accordance with the rise in sympathetic ratio with the Master, they do not "change into a more powerful form by means of Ascension" like other Servants. That is because each individual walkure has her own upper limit of power.
    In accordance with Chaldea's summoning system, if a walkure undergoes Ascension, there is a high likelihood that she will disappear "a different walkure who is suitable for the redefined magical capacity" will come forth - a process called 'substitute summoning'.

    Walkure Thrud.
    Walkure Hildr.
    Wakkure Ortlinde.

    The individuals confirmed through substitute summoning as a result of the Chaldea's summoning system and Ascension process are these three. One can conjecture that they are the individuals who formed some connection (or maybe will form one in the future) with the Master.
    Although there is a difference in magical power, since their true nature is roughly the same, they all manifest with True Name of "Walkure". To be accurate, they should have the individual names of Thrud, Hildr and Ortlinde, but the three firmly reject to be treated as "different individuals".

    "There is essentially no difference between walkures".
    "That's right. After all, our natures is one and the same".
    "Indeed. Sister Brynhildr is the weird one..."
    Or so she (they) say.

    As for why the walkures were summoned with such an unique Saint Graph.
    That is probably because the meetings and partings in the Norse Lostbelt formed a connection between them and the Master.

    Furthermore, they who have been summoned at this time are their selves from the Pan-Human History who became Heroic Spirits, Servants, thus different─── "completely different people" from those that the Master met in the Norse Lostbelt.
    Those who remember the war maidens from the Norse Lostbelt are only the Shadow Border troupe.

    It creates a space that disperses existences related to magecraft and magical power - such as Servants and familiars, magical formulas, phantasmal species, bloodsucking species, etc (individuals who fail in their resistance checks are dispersed).

    Scathach-Skadi
    Scathach-Skadi

    A Servant originated from the Norse Lostbelt.
    A "completely different person" from the Scathach of the Pan-Human History, she is a deity that applies only to that Lostbelt and an existence that is greatly inclined towards the disposition of a queen.

    Many of the traits of Skadi(Skathi) - the Norse giantess, goddess of mountains who shares the same origins as the Celtic heroine Scathach - have emerged.
    Rather than "a Scathach deeply collored by Skadi's aspects", it may be better to describe her as "a Skadi who is endowed with a portion of Scathach's disposition".

    In this manifestation, the facet of a teacher who raises brave warriors does not exist at all. She is not an expert of martial arts. Unlike the Lancer Scathach, who was easy to get along with even while remaining aloof(1), she conceals a disposition that is truly that of nature (the gods) itself - saying things like "Seems like I stepped on something", "Oh, it's the small one (human)" and "Should I love or kill you?"

    ───upon letting out a breath.
    It becomes a blizzard. Causing most living things to die.
    ───upon smiling.
    It becomes an everlasting spring. Causing life to bloom gorgeously.

    To her, both of these are equivalent.

    In the Ancient Norse language, the name Skadi(Skathi) means "harmful one". According to the Grimnismal of Poetic Edda, she is the daughter of the "abominable giant Thiazi" and lived together with her father in an old mansion in the land of commotions - Thrymheim.
    Due later marrying into the divine family, she would come to called the "lovely bride of the gods".

    Skadi is also referred as Ondurgud (god of ski) or Ondurdis (goddess of ski). It has been told that she was an expect in hunting at the mountains and a master of skiing.

    In this work, Scathach and Skadi are not completely the same existence, but rather takes an "intermingled" interpretation in which they have a mutual influence on each other.
    In a sense, it is probably due this mixture (syncretism​) that Lancer Scathach inherited the original runes possessed by the Great God Odin.

    According to the "Heimskringla", the history book of the Norwegian royalty, Skadi(Skathi) divorced from her first husband (the sea god Njorth) and remarried Odin.
    In this work, she remained unmarried and merely overlooked how later generations recorded things in this manner... or so it seems.

    Her self that existed in the Lostbelt as "Scathach-Skadi" possessed a especially high mixing ratio of Skadi components, so she possessed many traits as bride of the gods.

    A frightening queen.
    The goddess of ice and snow.

    However...
    Although she kept it hidden to the very end back when she governed the Lostbelt, her heart holds the melancholy of "someone who was left behind".
    For she was goddess loved by the other gods and who continuously received marriage proposals. Yet, by the time she realized, all gods disappeared at the end of the Ragnarok and she ended up becoming "the last god of the Norse world as a Lostbelt".
    And also───

    Actually, she is relatively careless.
    Actually, she is relatively petty.
    Actually, she has a relatively warm side.
    If your relationship deepens, you might eventually see her own individuality... which is different from her facet as a queen.
    Not a deity or even a ruler, but her plain self from which even the mask of the "Mother of the Norse" was peeled off.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Gate of Skye - Gateway Towards the Death-Overflowing Haunted Ground

    Rank: A+
    Type: Anti-Army/Opening of Hostilities
    Range: 2~50
    Maximum Targets: 200 people
    Temporarily summons a giant "gateway" that leads to the "Land of Shadows" - a haunted ground, foreign land severed from the rest of the world, which exists in the Outside of the World. "Land of Shadows"; the fiefdom which she originally was supposed to rule over - not as the goddess Skadi, but as the Celtic Scathach. A portion of it - the "Fortress of Shadows" - thus makes an appearance.
    Among the existences within its effective range, the "Fortress of Shadows" bestows great luck and blessings only to those she had approved of.
    Those loved by the "Fortress of Shadows" defeat powerful enemies even if they themselves are powerless.

    If this Noble Phantasm were to be effectively employed in a regular Holy Grail War, it would be possible to bring about an astonishing upset(2).

    Scathach-Skadi herself does not clearly understands why she uses this Noble Phantasm. She merely perceives that the divine protection bestowed by the Norse gods is probably being employed through the power of haunted ground originated from her other self (the Celtic Scathach).

    Achilles
    Achilleus

    A hero that boasts leading popularity in Greek Mythology.
    His life was like a gale that ran through everything and, at the same time, possessed a brilliance suitable for one called a hero.

    It has been said that, when inquired by his mother whatever he prefered a mediocre but peaceful life or to have an intense death as a hero, he unwaveringly chose the later.

    The name of the body part known as Achilles tendon is a vestige of the legend on how it was the sole weak point of Achilleus, who possessed an immortal body.

    The Trojan War was a conflict that stemmed from Paris (Hektor's younger brother) having hijacked Helene - the wife of Menelaus.
    When heroes and kings competed over Helene, a vow to "should Helene be abducted, we will rush to her rescue without fail" was established among them.
    ...however, since he was still a child at the time, Achilleus was not particularly related to said vow.
    He was scouted by the Achaean Army due a prophecy that said "it would be impossible to win that war without the participation of the son of Peleus".

    Born between the goddess Thetis and the hero Peleus, supposedly Achilleus' fate was determined since he was very young.
    Concerned about him, his mother Thetis attempted to have him stand in row with the immortal gods by broiling him over divine fire in order to evaporate his impure human blood (according to some theories, he had his body soaked in the river of the netherworld instead).

    However, his father Peleus firmly opposed making Achilleus completely immortal, for such a deed was equivalent to destroying Achilleus as a human.

    The goddess Thetis returned to her homeland and, after much though, the hero Peleus left Achilleus in the care of the sage Kheiron, requesting his rearing.
    As they were friends, he willingly accepted Peleus' request, and Achilleus went on to receive education as a hero from Kheiron - the leading famous teacher of Greece.

    A few years later, having grown into a fine man, Achilleus triumphantly departed to the Trojan War when his participation was requested.

    ---naturally, he did not know that tragedy was awaiting for him there, but he probably would not have been able to halt his steps even if he did.

    Chiron
    Kheiron

    A great sage from Greek Mythology.
    Well versed in all sorts of knowledges, due to his gentle personality and skillful teaching methods, countless heroes from Greece ultimately received his teachings.
    Herakles, Achilleus, Iason, Asklepios, Castor... while their periods diverged, they were all Kheiron's disciples.

    Because the God Kronos, Kheiron's father, copulated with his mother while in the form of a horse, Kheiron too was born as a half-man, half-horse centaur. Due such monstrous figure, she vehemently balked at breastfeeding him and ended up transforming herself into a linden tree.

    Despite not being loved by his parents, Kheiron grew into a sage that excelled in all sorts of studies. This is not entirely unrelated to the fact that his mother's name - Philyra - means linden tree. For the flower of the linden tree can be used as a medicine if handled with care, and its bark was employed in divination and as a writting board.

    Upon becoming an adult, Kheiron began to receive requests from all over Greece to rear "future heroes". Other than the great heroes Herakles and Achilleus, his students included the future God of Medicine Asklepios and Castor - who would later be sublimated into the Gemini constellation. Even Iason, the leader of the Argonautai, was among those who received his teachings.

    That being said, according to Iason "Well, for someone like me, those sorts of concise and easy-to-understand lessons were quite jarring instead! Rather, I wished that he had taught me how to cope when you're stuck with a landmine-like woman!"

    Kheiron, the prominent great sage of Greek Mythology, was ultimately shot with a hydra's poison arrow and had to relinquish his immortality - which was his proof as a god - in order to escape the resulting anguish.
    The gods who felt that Kheiron deserved better raised him to heavens as a star. But upon manifesting in this world, Kheiron came to regret relinquishing his immortality and now holds the wish of once again obtaining it.
    However, that is neither because he wants to be sublimated into a god, nor because he years for eternal life.
    His wish is simply to obtain the sole peculiarity which he was granted by his parents.

    Sieg
    Sieg

    Let's say that there was someone who reached out his hands towards an unreachable star, all while clenching his teeth(1).
    This man stand on the side that shot down said star.
    A mere homunculus, a mere human.

    The Holy Grail War that was held in Romania---
    In that Great Holy Grail War, he was one of the homunculi minted for the sake of prana supply.
    Originally, his fate was to die after being squeezed out of prana. But, as a result of struggling to survive, he acquired the power of Siegfried and became the eye of the typhoon called Great Holy Grail War.

    He has nothing that resembles a past.
    It may sound good to call him pure, what laid there is only the resignation of being born and having one's death determined just for the sake of an objective.
    His appearance, knowledge and mentality was close to that of an adolescent, but he was (in a sense) a "perfect" existence quite removed from humans.

    However, as he went along living, that perfection was lost little by little.

    A certain priest loathed that, but he himself desired so and thus abandoned that perfection.
    ...said antagonism would ultimately bring the Great Holy Grail War to a closure.

    Having turned into the evil dragon Fafnir, Sieg carried the Greater Grail to the reverse side of the world in order to prevent the fulfilment of the Third Magic.
    He continues to wait in the reverse side of the moon, all while holding on to the hope that she will come to meet him.

    Servant Sieg is more of a terminal than an imitation.
    Just like the Avenger - Jeanne Alter, he will probably disappear once the anthropic principle starts to move properly and his role come to an end.

    The youngest daughter of Nikolay II, the last Tsar of the Russian Empire.
    Swallowed by the turbulence of the Russian Revolutions, she was murdered at the Ipatiev House along with her family, servants and pet animals.

    Fundamentally naive and innocent, but due a misanthropic disposition, she speaks in a dispassionate tone right after being summoned - a stage in which she still does not have faith in the Master.

    If one were to earn her trust, he will probably see her original lively, mischievous side.
    She left behind many pleasant episodes, such as taking her own picture by projecting the camera with a mirror... something that modern people would call a "selfie".

    Many of her letters to her family still remain, which gives us a glimpse of her innocent side and deep affection to her family

    Strictly speaking, the spirit or monster called Viy does not exist. It is a fictional monster that appeared in the horror novella "Viy", written by the Russian literary master Gogol.
    However, there are several folklores similar to Viy in Slav culture, and one can surmise that it was modelled after them.

    The Viy that Anastasia is contracted with was a familiar in the possession of the Russian Empire.
    By means of his mystic eyes, he exposed all secrets, discovered weak points in fortresses and also dyed enemies in blood.

    Since this is a magical beast transformation by means of the pelt of Calydon, she is a rare existence that possess composed thought despite receiving a boost in parameters comparable to A Rank Mad Enhancement (because this is not a transformation that indulges in fury, but a summoning in which she is constantly in a state of beastification, the rank has fallen in comparison to when she employs the Noble Phantasm).
    It is possible to implement the optimal means to defeat an opponent, and she may even consider retreat according to the situation.
    However, it is fundamentally impossible for her to be persuaded by one that she has once considered an enemy.

    Although she is able to have a conversation despite possessing an skill equivalent to Mad Enhancement, logical persuasion is fundamentally impossible.

    She has no interest in whatever you are an ally of the anthropic principle or not.
    No matter how much the beastification has progressed, she remains a faithful Servant so long you do not deviate from the rules she has carved in her heart. But once you go against with those rules, she will probably abandon the relationship of Master and Servant.
    Probably, she won't even be able to discern her Master anyone.

    Avicebron
    Avicebron

    His real name is Solomon ben Judah ibn Gabirol. A philosopher, poet and a kabbalist of the 11th century that employs one of the main genres of magecraft, the Kabbalah.

    Having assembled the magical foundation of the Kabbalah, he is a Caster specialised in the minting of golems.
    Although merely building a golem-minting workshop already requires of him enough budget and long hours of work to make an average magus go bankrupt ten times over, the golems that he mints have the same level of power as an E Rank Servant, and he can produce them infinitely as long as the budget lasts.
    However, the golems that appear during regular combat are temporary articles to be employed in that combat alone, and have no endurance at all.

    As a Servant Caster, he is likely a type that is difficult to handle.
    It should be possible to understand that this is also due a side of his that mercilessly tramples anyone underfoot so long it is for the sake of realising his dream.

    Having a poor health, he often suffered from some sort of illness - among which a skin disease was particularly serious. Maybe because of that, it has been said that he was gloomy and pessimistic. In this work, one can peek in his heart by the manner how he never takes off his mask to show his face.
    In actual history, Avicebron became known across Arabia and Europe thanks to his philosophical thoughts. In a sense, it could be also said that he supported the Renaissance culture.

    Also, he invented the term "Kabbalah" from the Hebraic word for "to receive".
    In legends, it has also been said that he minted a female-type golem for the sake of performing daily housework.

    Antonio Salieri
    Antonio Salieri

    "Amadeus Wolfgang Mozart!
    ....I am the one who kills you.

    Your reputation, your songs, your vestiges, I shall kill them all.
    Should you ever manifest in this world, this time for sure, I shall kill you with my own hands.
    O man loved by God,
    Gottlieb."

    An excellent Servant who follows his Master's orders and promptly brings down the target.
    Human will and personality will not intervene with that.

    He originally possessed a thoughtful, composed personality.
    However, due turning into an innocent monster, Salieri's personality is constantly cracked.
    Being fused with the "gray messenger" (whose legends portray him as similar to the grim reaper) also had a bad influence on him.
    Upon laying eyes on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, he will probably ignore the Master's orders and become a rampaging slaughter machine

    Antonio Salieri and Amadeus Mozart were friends.

    Originally, he would have never been engraved on the Throne as an anti-hero.
    Although Salieri was driven out from his position as Hofkapellmeister(1), his existence was revered as a respectable musician and he took many young musicians as his pupils. Among those were Mozart's protégé Sussmayr, his son Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart and even Beethoven.

    However, in 1820, the legend that "Mozart was killed by Salieri" suddenly spread across the world. Even though that is different from the truth, people daydreamed about the cruel story of "a prodigy who deeply resented and took the life of a genius loved by God".
    Even the words that the aged Salieri said to his pupil Moscheles - that "those are nothing but defamations full of malice" - were disseminated as an admission of guilty.
    Even rumours about how the elder repented his sins and cut his throat with a knife were whispered as if true.

    Thus, after a long time has passed.
    Having his existence continuously twisted by the baseless assassination legends, Salieri was syncretised with the legends of the "gray messenger" that also deals with Amadeus last moments, achieving materialisation as a Servant.
    An anti-hero that harms people───

    The sad one.
    The angry one.
    The one who kills the beloved child of God.
    As a single, innocent monster.



    Given his origins, Servant Salieri is an aggressive existence - a type of Servant that. Is hard to reach a mutual understanding with.
    Careful attention is required when dealing with him
    (during his manifestation in the Lost Belt, it is believed that some degree of rationality was retained due some sort of modifier).

    Armor of Lamentation: A
    As an anti-hero, Salieri is clad into a shell・armor.
    This is an ability derived from being associated, syncretising with the "gray messenger" that occasionally appears in records about Mozart─── the grim reaper-like existence said to have arrived on July 1791 to commission the composition of the "Requiem".
    During combat, Salieri automatically clads himself in this and operates as a combat device of slaughter.

    Ivan the Terrible
    Ivan the Terrible

    An emperor (tsar) of Russia and a dreadful (terrible) monster.
    In addition, a man who man transformed into a figure that is much like a magical beast and became an existence closer to a god in the Lostbelt.
    Such is Ivan the Terrible.

    As expected of the one regarded as the worst tyrant of Russia, his sternness and brutality are unprecedented.
    One the other hand, he was also a believer who was nothing but devout towards God.
    Such an excessively conflicting dual nature would never be tolerated on a decent human being, so it is probably a privilege permitted only for an emperor who possessed absolute authority.

    Although he understand his present circumstances by means of modern knowledge, an ordinary person would probably faint just by laying eyes on this Servant.
    This is not only because his figure is that of a monster, but also due to the power(1) that he possesses being too much overwhelming.

    The emperor who reigned over the Empire of Frozen Soil, Anastasia ― a "possible" Russia that was pruned as "something unnecessary, an unnecessary fluctuation (if)" during the process of reaching the present human history and discarded even from the parallel universes theory by "having its history discontinued, since anything beyond this would lead to an impasse (dead end)".
    Such is Ivan the Terrible.
    The one resurrected as a Servant is indeed that Ivan the Terrible, but he exists here as the world's first yaga from that Lostbelt's history.
    Those who inhabited his empire were all yagas, since it was already impossible to survive that harsh environment while remaining a human.

    Yet, something important that had been acquired back when they were still humans was lost in the process.

    While the Ivan the Terrible of the Pan-Human History was indeed a tyrant, he was an existence without any connections with magecraft.
    In the Lostbelt however, he invited the magi when the crisis of global freezing became imminent.
    He sought the path for survival that came with the techniques for fusing humans with magical beasts.

    However, that was the same as bringing to this world lifeforms that were completely different from humans already. So, when even their mentality ended up changing in the end, they were perceived as a human history that had reached an impasse――― a world that had to be pruned.

    His lamentations never-ending, the Terrible continues his pilgrimage even while grieving.

    He can be allotted to both the the Lawful and the Chaotic alignments.
    The Saint Graph registered with Chaldea is the Lawful one.

    Contradictory Mentality: A
    As the Emperor of Russia, Ivan the Terrible had both established a centralised authoritarian government and imposed politics of fear.
    He would spend the mornings regretting his sins while secluded in a church, just to gleefully torture rebels during the afternoons.
    The mentality that seems to have perfectly assimilated both a saint and a scoundrel randomly changes between two types of alignments.
    That is, Lawful and Chaotic.

    Innocent Monster (Divergent): A
    Despite being just a person, he self-proclaimed to be an existence equivalent to "God" and reached the summit of authority by driving away the nobles who boasted of power(1) in the past.
    Russia revered him as an absolute emperor, while the people of Western Europe called him "dreadful (terrible)" in fear.
    In the Empire of Frozen Soil, he became (was reduced to) a monster worthy of ruling over the Russian Lostbelt, by fusing with the strongest magical beast available at the time.

    Emergency Powers: A
    The right of absolute obedience that Ivan the Terrible demanded in order to rule over the opposing nobility.
    The intense intimidating air towards the surrounding people brings about a severe "heavy pressure" effect that lowers the rank of all abilities.
    Ordinary humans would find difficult to even look at him.
    It is possible to negate this by means of Charisma of B Rank or above.

    Semiramis
    Semiramis

    The Empress of the Assyrian Empire, and the oldest poisoner in the world. She became famous overnight by poisoning her husband, King Ninus.

    Also, for a time, she was rumorred to have constructed the Hanging Gardens of Babylon - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (the one who actually constructed it was Nebuchadnezzar II).

    Born between a certain human and the goddess Derketo, Semiramis was abandoned by a shamed Derketo on a waterside.
    Still, as a baby that inherited divine blood, she managed to have a long life thanks to being reared by countless doves.

    Having grown beautiful, Semiramis married the aged general Onnes, but she ended up being half-forcefully separated from her husband by the ambitious King Ninus, who was enchanted by her beauty. Semiramis had no choice but to accept King Ninus' affections, while Onnes ended up killing himself out of sadness.
    When war broke out with a neighbouring country, King Ninus discovered that Semiramis had wonderful talents when he obtained victory by means of the novel tactics that she suggested, and finally decided to join her in formal matrimony.
    Yet, King Ninus ended up dying due to feeling sudden pains after drinking a wine cup in his wedding banquet. People gossiped that she had poured poison on the drink in order to avenge her late husband.
    Thus, having became the empress of Assyria, Semiramis performed government affairs as a regent throughout decades of rule, leading many expeditions and construction enterprises.

    It has been told that, in the end, she was deliberately murdered by her son, or that she became a dove after giving up her position and flied away.

    As for her personality--- she is an empress filled with ambition and cunning.
    Kicking about both allies and enemies alike, killing by means of poison and breaking hearts by means of poison.
    Her suspicion towards others is strong, and she would execute even allies if the needs arise - or even without the need to.
    At the same time, she has absolute confidence in her powers (so long she is within her own territory, that is).
    Thus, at the same time that her compatibility with other kings is fatally bad, she rarely takes the initiative herself.

    As an exception, in case her Hanging Gardens of Babylon comes into existence in its complete form, she aggressively goes on the offensive due boasting matchless strength inside of it.

    The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Actually, Semiramis was not involved with the Hanging Gardens. However, this was established as a Noble Phantasm by making use of the faith from many people who misunderstood it as so.

    Since this is but a "vainglory" after all, the activation conditions for the Noble Phantasm are strict.
    A given amount of earth and stone must be transported from the historic ruins of a certain age that exist in the Middle East, and preparations for activation will be complete after putting them together.
    Afterwards, the functions of the Gardens will finally activate after a three-days ceremony is performed.

    This manifests as a literal "great fortress that floats mid-air".
    So long she is inside this fortress, all of Semiramis' parameters Rank-UP.
    Her popularity rise to the highest class and advantageous modifiers are also added to her attacks.

    In a certain Holy Grail War, these Gardens became the final battleground. The eleven defensive magic formulas repeatedly shot down rushing airplanes, but these defenses were at last broken by the flag of a holy maiden and the charge of a flying cavalryman.


    Asagami Fujino
    Asagami Fujino

    A young girl discovered in the irregular singularity・Boundary Formula.

    A uniform of a girls college with a stern appearance, a modest speech and a too drastic dynamism. Despite all of them being commonplace, they make you feel a dangerousness(1) that strays from that standing somewhat.
    A holder of the "Mystic Eyes of Distortion", which twists anything reflected in her field of vision while disregarding hardness・structure・scale.
    Supposedly, in days of old, the surname Asagami was written as Asakami and belonged to a family lineage of miko that was well versed in the kami (supernatural power).

    CIPA --- a young girl whose sense of touch - one of the five senses - has gone numb and thus lives without knowing pain.
    Due not knowing pain, she could not symphatize with the feelings of others and became isolated from the circle of people.
    Possessing a high intelect since she was very young, Fujino kept her CIPA hidden and feigned her own heart - all in order to exhibit to the surroundings that "I'm a normal person" and protect herself.
    A Servant added to the Collaboration Event "Reissued Edition: Kara no Kyoukai/the Garden of Order -Revival-".
    She does not appear in the scenario. A special participation during battle as a guest.

    A young girl in her late teens. With a mild and passive personality.
    The picture of a conservative woman who always stands behind her husband.
    Although she is not very good at dealing with the more violent side of men, she also thinks that such childish aspect of them is adorable.
    Therefore, rather than affection, it seems that she tends to hold longing (feelings of infatuation) towards a complete rational man.

    A talented woman who treats others with respect and upholds common sense, but since she is a complete pessimist and a realist, there are also times when she utters a bitter oppinion. Although very patient(2), upon losing control, she won't stop until she has driven the opponent to a wall (solved the situation) - much like a rampaging dump trunk.
    In that sense, she is similar to Shiki who shows no mercy in her decisions.

    Possessing feminine mannerisms, verbal expressions and personality, but her hobbies are something far removed from girlish tastes. She prefers dark things that one can secretly enjoy alone, such as viewing horror movies.
    The person herself will not be aware of this until the end, but she has a latent predisposition to sadism. This is the reason why she becomes cruel・coldhearted・of bad taste as soon as she is driven to a corner.

    The era that Fujino lived in was turned to ash by the incineration of the anthropic principle.
    She too was burned to ashes, but her peculiarity was not overlooked by the Counter Force of the world.
    The Alaya-shiki adopted her superpower as a military asset for the sake of overturning the incineration of the anthropic principle and she was summoned by Chaldea as a transient Servant.
    For her, this current self is nothing but a "dream".
    Just like Shiki, this is an illusion of a single night that she is seeing just before being burned to ashes, and which will simply disappear if the incineration of the anthropic principle is not overturned.
    A person with normal sensitivities would fall in a state confusion and panic, but Fujino has smoothly accepted this abnormality.
    She perfectly understands her position as someone summoned as a Servant and probably will endeavor to help the Master, within the limits of what she can do.

    Osakabe-hime

    Osakabe-hime (also called Osakabe-dono(1) in “Saikaku Shokoku-banashi”(2), or Osakabe(1) in Konjaku Gazu Zoku Hyakki) is a type of youkai that was enshrined as the landlord deity of Himeji.
    In the present, she is well-known as a castle monster that settled in the castle tower of Himeji Castle.

    At a glance she appears to be a tidy black-haired maiden, but once the veneer is taken off, what you have is someone gloomy, menial and with a predisposition to find most things bothersome.
    While she is good at pretending to be a princess, since her interpersonal conversation skills are considerably low, she can only perform template moves.
    In regards to whatever she is scheming or not: yes she is, but in the end this is just the disposition of a small-time scoundrel. In the worst case, she will merely use your credit card to do shopping without your permission.

    To tell the truth, her real identity is that of a fox that lived for over 300 years, but after a refreshing exchange with a certain fox-type good wife Servant - such as “Our personas will overlap, so you better back off (this is a polished liberal translation)” - she decided to be summoned as Servant while having a bat as her motif.

    Her glasses removal is a type of princess move. In places where there will be no problems even if her gloominess is fully released, she leaves her glasses on.

    Mecha Eli-chan
    Mecha Eli-chan

    Human science has finally come this far?!

    No, that’s not right - this has nothing to do with science.
    After being repeatedly assaulted by abnormal events, the Csejte Castle has finally dispatched its final weapon.
    That is a legacy left behind by a nameless sage.
    A treasure stored in the Csejte Castle’s basement.
    A guardian statue that shouldn’t be able to speak hailed at the figure of the demoness of fresh blood (who happened upon a Holy Grail many times over just to fail in the end) and finally awakened as a guardian deity.

    Her name is Alter Ego・Mecha Eli-chan.
    A demoness of justice who woke up to the heart of a feudal lord, and went a little bit too far.

    An (inflexible) Servant of justice.
    There is a reason why her alignment is “Lawful Good” - Elizabeth’s exact opposite.
    Fundamentally cool and prudent, a genuine noble lady.
    Although she seldom raises her voice, she gets into a self-righteous/sovereign-mode upon facing evil and begins a strict reprimand.
    ...Maybe, if Elizabeth had never been seized by that bloody delusion. No, if there was someone to protect her from pressure such as “a woman is worthless if she is not beautiful”, maybe the story of Csejte Castle would have been different.
    Perhaps, this Alter Ego is that “possibility” given shape.

    Despite possessing perfect beauty, Mecha Eli-chan also have a few defects.
    One of those is her "evaluation criteria for justice".
    Maybe due the way of being as a castle's guardian deity, she surmises that anyone who breaks her own rules (no matter who that may be) is evil and ends up attacking him...!
    *despite not saying anything, she seriously worries on how she may be punishing those who did "something bad" in a textbook-manner due the fact that her electronic brain takes time to process the "human inconsistency".

    Both rebels and criminal offenders have their own circumstances.
    Intellectually believing that she should take those extenuating circumstances into consideration?, Mecha Eli-chan is unhappy about such self-righteous train of thought? of hers and is troubled on how to improve on it.
    She is simply a good girl.

    Mecha Eli-chan is properly aware of herself as a golem (mecha).
    Just like Passionlip and Meltlilith, she dislikes the basis of her character that is Elizabeth Bathory - despite respecting her as the original.
    She found faults on Elizabeth - saying things like “I’m better suited as a feudal lord” -and planned to driver her away, but it’s not like she wants to kill her.
    She would have no reasons to reject her if Elizabeth would only become an ideal feudal lord, but she understand that such time will never come - for Elizabeth is a Servant that can only come into existence as an innocent monster,.
    For similar reasons, Carmilla is also no good.
    Although Carmilla’s personality is that of an ideal feudal lord, she is out(1) due her way of being as a vampire.

    While she at first acknowledged the Master as an villain allied to the enemy (Elizabeth) that destroys the Himeji Castle, that misunderstanding was cleared through their joint struggle.
    For Mecha Eli-chan, the Master who attempted to protect the Csejte Castle (which was not even his/her country) became a candidate “pilot of justice that can be trusted despite being part of the masses”.

    Mecha Eli-chan Mk II
    Mecha Eli-chan Mk. II

    The other strange Servant that appeared on that extremely chaotic Halloween.

    Her appearance resembles Mecha Eli-chan, her Noble Phantasm is a matching set with Mecha Eli-chan's, and even her skills and parameters are exactly the same.
    What does this strange coincidence represents...?
    Rumors goes that she is the wisest, the one with greatest heroine-power (strength) among the Elizabeth species, but really????

    "...let me just warn you
    I will kill you if you say konpachi
    (1)."

    Mecha Eli-chan Mk. II.
    The attributes as a feudal lord were strongly emphasized on the Mk. I, but this one has the attributes as a "guardian deity" more pronounced.
    Rather than human reason, she acts based on the reason of a god.
    Having lost the sensitivity as a feudal lord, the feeling that is possible to come to an agreement through dialogue, she solely conducts herself as a ruthless defense mechanism towards humanity (foreign enemies).

    Although the grotesque notion of bathing herself in the blood of maidens in order to maintain her beauty is no more, that sadism, cruelty has certainly been inherited.

    A cool girl who hates being called Mecha Eli-chan and prefers to be referred just as "Mk. II".
    Looking down on humans, her motto is that they are merely decoration parts for the country (fiefdom) and should be controlled by force if they try to resist.

    ...that being said, since she understands that such train of thought? of hers is not something good for the vassals, she will never claim to be a "good law".

    As an evil for the people, she treats the livelihood of the vassals as "something good" and dominates it.
    She is an evil Mecha Eli-chan that has such conviction underneath the unpainted face? of a misanthropist?.

    The ruthless yet good-natured Mk. I was unable to see through Osakabe-hime's real intentions and fell.

    Meanwhile, despite seeing through Osakabe-hime's true nature, Mk. II did not went into righteous indignation? but instead unemotionally set out to administrate the Csejte Castle and dominate over the Halloween as a Servant.
    For Mk. II, both Osakabe-hime and Chaldea are the same.
    Nothing but "tools that came from the outside and possess a Holy Grail", which exist in order to perpetuate the Csejte Castle.

    Unlike the feudal lord copy that is the Mk. I, the Mk. II was completely built as a guardian idol. In a sense, she is the defense mechanism of the Csejte Castle itself.
    The megaframe (giant mecha) that appeared in the background of the Himeji Castle is her main body, but because its prana consumption is colossal, it can only properly move its two hands.

    She appeared as a cool and cruel villain, but the end result is as you know.
    At the end of the day, since she is just like Elizabeth, she ended up opening her heart to the Master who is concerned about her.
    As usual, her (sub) heroine-power alone is high.

    Circe
    Circe

    The witch of temptation and depravity, famous in mythology.
    An eternal maiden, with a tendency to fall in love and become deeply jealous.
    Innocent and pampered, her wiles in caring for another truly has the taste of a forbidden nectar.
    However, one must be careful about how to refer to her. That is, if you still want to remain a human...

    She appears in the epic poem of Homer - the "Odysseia".
    A famous witch from the mythology of Aeaea Island.
    A demigod that presides over the moon and love, related to the genealogy of the goddess Hecate.
    A rikejo(1) that has the mixing of a magic drug that brings about various effects and mutations as her forte.
    Although she would show a warm welcome to the human men that visited her island with by entertaining them with a feast, she turned them into lions, wolves and pigs upon growing bored on them.
    Her older brother is Aeetes (the King of Colchis・father of Medea). Her younger sister is Pasiphae (wife of Minos, King of Crete・mother of Asterios).

    Likes:
    Flawed human men who rely on her. To treat other to her wheat porridge, Circaea(2).
    Dislikes:
    For men to lose interest on her. To be one-sidedly protected.

    The reason why, after a certain point of time, she drastically cut her beautiful hair short - which even Homer praised - was due having experienced a severe unrequited love that completely overwhelmed her.

    When the Sea God Glaucus sought a love advice from her, she grew jealous after being rejected by Glaucus once they had an illicit affair and ended up turning his beloved maiden Scylla into a monster. Said Scylla would later devour six of Odysseus’ subordinates.

    The hero Odysseus stopped by Aeaea Island on his way back to his homeland and was offered a poisoned wheat porridge by Circe, but she took a liking of him in the end as a result of breaking her magic with the divine protection of Hermes. When Odysseus departed, she gave him useful advices for avoiding hardships in his travel.

    Nezha
    Nezha

    The foremost elite military commander of Heavens, Marshal of the Central Altar・Crown Prince Nezha.
    She was reborn from a lotus flower after meeting a gruesome death in the world of mortals.
    Boasting the military achievement of sealing away the apparition of Jiushiliu Dong, she is the greatest rival of the Great Sage Equal to Heaven・Sun Wukong (or so she thinks).

    Originally a minor deity from Hindu mythology called Nalakuvara, she was transmitted across China as a guardian deity of Buddhism, becoming the boy god・Crown Prince Nezha by being adopted into Taoism. Even now, she is intimately worshiped in the East Asia region centered on China.
    Appears in the “Investiture of the Gods” as a central character.
    In the “Journey to the West”, she was recruited to subjugate Sun Wukong as he rampaged in Heavens and was often dispatched by Shangdi in order to help in the travel of Xuanzang’s party.

    To begin with, Nezha is not a human.
    Rather, she is an existence somewhat between a human and an Xian, born by making the Cintamani stone that the Xian of Mt. Kulun, Taiyi Zhenren, dropped on the world of mortals as her core.
    Other than the Paopei (treasures) that she was said to possess from the moment of her birth - the Qian Kun Quan (Universe Ring) and Hun Tian Ling (Red Armillary Sash) - Taiyi Zhenren also bestowed Nezha with Paopei at every opportunity. Those are the “Zhan Yao Jian”, “Kan Yao Dao”, “Fu Yao Suo”, "Jiang Mo Chu” “Tou Qiu”, “Feng Huo Lun” and “Huo Jian Qiang” (Fire-tipped Spear).

    Although Nezha was not evil as she grew up on the world of mortals, she was an excessively insolent rambunctious kid. She killed a god upon being rebuked for polluting a river, and even killed the god that was its superior. She was rebuked for that before long, and when calamity befell even her parents in the world of mortals, she reluctantly committed suicide.

    Afterwards, despite many turns and twists, Nezha was resurrected as spirit of a lotus flower. Her revival had the assistance of not only Taiyi Zhenren, but also Shakyamuni.
    Having been summoned as a Lancer, she is deeply tinged with the personality as a guardian of Buddhism that appears in the “Journey to the West”. Were she summoned as Nezha’s cruel disposition, from right before she committed suicide, she would probably have turned into a Berserker.

    ...incidentally, Taiyi Zhenren was very indifferent regarding the gender of his creation. To begin with, he treated Nezha as a child that had yet to develop any secondary sexual characteristics.
    In other words, Nezha’s body after being revived ended up being configured with a different gender from that of her previous life, but by then it was already too late.
    This is the reason why Nezha displays an awkward attitude towards the topic of gender, even though she has pride on her own body’s origins and performance.

    Queen of Sheba
    Queen of Sheba

    A legendary queen whose name anyone heard about at least once.
    A mystical individual whose true state is even now wrapped up in mystery.
    Crossing over the eras and illusions, she appeared before our Chaldeas.

    All for the sake of fulfilling a single promise, which is so hard to forget---.

    She appears in the “Old Testament (Book of Kings)” and the “New Testament”.
    An enigmatic queen that ruled over the “Kingdom of Sheba” that existed south of Jerusalem. However, not a single definite evidence that proves the existence of the Queen and the Kingdom have been discovered.

    In the Ethiopia of East Africa, one of the proposed sites for the Kingdom, a magnificent nation-founding myth - in which the Queen and King Solomon were united in marriage and she became the mother of the first emperor - was left behind.

    Despite being an indefinite existence much like a mirage... no, maybe exactly because of that, the Queen of Sheba left many folklores on how she “was a peerless beauty” who was not outdone by King Solomon’s majestic figure.
    Really, why is it that a disappointing presence hangs around her even though she is certainly a beauty...? No, of course it is evident. First of all, she is in a rush of business. She is avaricious towards everything and does not forgive meaningless waste. Gold and silver, treasures, connections, get rich quick schemes; those for sure are the blood and breath that go around in her mind and body. And yet, one should bear in mind the possibility that the poses she shows are just acting, a deception that focused on a distant future.

    Other than that, she also left many legends in various places about “being the owner of a physical appearance removed from humans”.
    According to an Arabian tale, “the Queen had hairy feet and donkey’s hooves”. In Southern France, “she had paddles much like a goose’s on her feet”.

    The anecdote of her being “a child born from a jinn woman and a human man” have been certified.
    The Queen is believed to be endowed with a phantasmagoric power to display various appearances, much like a lens that refracts light.

After exchanging gifts with King Solomon, the Queen got on her way back home.


    Abigail Williams
    Abigail Williams

    You are a sinner, the knot of seven cords.
    That which seeks atonement in the land of heresy, is the fruits of a demon’s labors.

    ---who is the next victim to be indicated by the pure young girl?

    The end of the 17th century.
    The “Witch Trials” that occurred in the Puritan pioneers’ village of Salem.
    One of the first to show symptoms of demonic possession was the young girl Abigail Williams.
    The abnormal symptoms of demonic possession spread across other young girls as well, and many villagers were prosecuted for roughly one year.
    The result was a tragedy in which 200 people were arrested, from which 19 were hanged to death, 2 died in prison and 1 was tortured to death.
    Even now many mysteries remain, such as the true motives of the young girls and the main cause that triggered everything.

    As a follower of Puritanism, Abigail is a pure young girl who reveres God and never misses her prayers of gratitude. Nothing but a girl that is as old as she appears to be - emotional and who does not know how to be suspicious of others.

    The Puritans that had honorable poverty as their creed crossed the sea in order to escape the pressure of the Church that catered to political authority, eventually reaching the New World. However, it would catch up to them before long, driving them to a wall. The spearhead of their objections (protest) would then turn towards their close neighbors.

    Just like a “hero” will surely stand up to a world of decadence and oppression---
    The creed of purity meant for disciplining themselves turned into a tool to surveilling others, and the turbulent colonial livelihood - in which wars and plundering happened over and over again - fostered feelings of suspicion and selfishness.
    ---before long, they began to wish for a madness, a “witch” from the bottom of their hearts. As if to say that “this misfortune and hardship of ours must be the work of a demon”.

    Sure enough, a witch appeared in Salem and the door for a gruesome witch trial was opened. The chaotic circumstances that become its “keyhole”. The young girl who reflected people’s desires and that became the “key”. If none of those could have be missing; well, in which of them lies the sin?

    Ereshkigal
    Ereshkigal

    The netherworld deity from Sumerian mythology.
    The fearsome ruler of the Netherworld who freely handling a cage that is much like a spear, at times she impales the enemies, at times locks up their souls and at times generates lightning bolts.
    Bearing the professional duty of managing the Netherworld from the moment she was born, a goddess who disappeared together with the Age of Gods without ever learning about freedom and the surface.
    That figure is not of the Goddess Ereshkigal herself, but a Pseudo-Servant state in which a human soul with a wavelength close to hers was made into a vessel.
    Much like a goddess of the Netherworld, she says that surveilling humans is her duty but---
    ... I’ll be troubled if they come to the Netherworld in great numbers... it is hard to build the cages to imprison their souls after all... I wonder if I can properly offer a comfortable place for them....
    ---just like this, she cannot fully conceal her helpful nature.
    Truly, a (red) angel of the netherworld.

    In the original texts of Mesopotamian Mythology, she presided over the growth and decomposition of vegetation, employed snakes and dragons, and freely controlled the garla(?) spirits that served as envoys of the Netherworld.
    The “Mistress of Heavens” that was Ishtar had a rivalry with the “Mistress of the Netherworld” that was Ereshkigal.
    As far as mythography goes, the goddess of good harvest Ishtar (Innana) was a Great Earth Mother that represented human life, while Ereshkigal was a Terrible Mother that represented human death.

    In myths, Ishtar would proceed towards the Netherworld only to be killed by Ereshkigal.
    Ishtar would be revived afterwards, but while not a single reason was given why Ishtar went to the Netherworld and why Ereshkigal felt so much rage, this work treats such relationship as the two sides of the same coin.
    Ishtar and Ereshkigal.
    These two deities are the same existence, or maybe a divinity from a single god that split into two.

    A passive・introverted personality.
    A goddess of death and decay who, due possessing to much pride and high intelligence, ended up sacrificing herself for the role of landlady of the Netherworld until she became bound hand and foot.
    Envious of beautiful things, laughing at ugly things, she ends up killing those she desires so that they do not fall into another’s hands.
    ... or so Ereshkigal once was, but by fusing with the young girl that became her vessel, she started to objectively perceive those desires of hers as “something not good”, “something shameful”, and her brutality disappeared underneath her deepest levels.
    Still, since she is someone impulsive, such aspect of hers comes to surface once she gets angry and she becomes a fearsome, disappointing goddess just like in myths.
    Since her behavioral principles is that of Ereshkigal, one can also view this as the young girl that became the vessel having turned more composed, and self-torturing.

    While her choice of words is roughly the same as Ishtar’s, her expressions becomes that of an elegant rich lady here and there.
    Although she adds “~surely”(1) to her sentences and acts exaggerated whenever she becomes honest, or falls into a panic, that is because the “undecorated portion” of her well-mannered self is coming to light. While Ishtar expresses herself like a vigorous woman due being pampered and natural freewheelingness - even though she should have been raised as a sheltered lady - it was Ereshkigal who acquired the speech of a “sheltered (ignorant of the ways of the world) rich lady” due having performed her professional duties on the Netherworld in a overly serious manner.

    Since the age of mythology, Ereshkigal suffered and detested the way how she was unpopular, a social outcast.
    Even I wish to live freely like Ishtar. I wish to meet someone who accepts me as the landlady of the Netherworld, yet looks at me regardless of the status of landlady of the Netherworld”.
    ---she even had such maidenly wish.
    I do not deny being a villain, but even something evil can be helpful to humans. So why is everyone afraid of me?!
    Despite sulking on the back of her mind in such a manner, upon witnessing the demise that approached the Mesopotamian world, she affiliated herself with the Three Goddess Alliance in order to protect humans in the best way she could and became an enemy of Uruk.

    Afterwards, she sunk on the abyss due a number of reasons, but then she affirmed “her current self” also due a number of reasons and chose the path of cooperating with Chaldea for the sake of restoring the anthropic principle.

    The spear she holds in her hands is called Heating Temple Meslamtaea.
    A light that warms the bottom of the earth, allowed only for the period of this Saint Graph.

    Prana Burst (Cage): A+
    Ereshkigal is a diligent, earnest and somewhat pessimistic goddess.
    So long there is spare time, she stores her magical power in the spear-cages and employs them during battle.

    Protection of the Netherworld: EX
    The Authority of Ereshkigal, who ruled and was sacrificed as the pillar of the Netherworld.
    Having governed the Netherworld until its end, she became both the Netherworld itself and a queen protected by the Netherworld.

    While its power is inferior to Ishtar’s Venus Blaster, the essence of this Noble Phantasm is to “turn the terrain into a netherworld”. Since Ereshkigal possesses immense authority so long she is in the Netherworld, both she and all of those who fight along her will probably be bestowed with a strong protection.

    Altera (Santa)
    Altera, the Sun(ta)

    Look at the sky.
    Anyone who harbors a prayer in the holy night should be able to see it.
    A rainbow streak that soars across the night sky.
    A herd of sheep crying “baa”.
    And the figure of a lovely Santa, dressed in a bold costume and with a slight cold...!

    Her name is Altera, the Sun(ta).
    The Western Great King, the sword-princess possessing the Crest of the Stars awakened from an unfortunate fate to the mission as a Santa Claus and stood up without giving in to her first poor physical health ever (slight fever) - the reliable Third Heroic Spirit of Christmas.

    On this occasion, she is being accompanied by many nomadic riders thanks to the anecdote as a Great King... or so it should have been, but all of them have the shape of cute sheep (yet, of cosmic specifications(1)). Why is that?

    An overly healthy body, an overly healthy mind and a somewhat stupid... er, pure personality brought about an unique opportunity to her.
    When the Chaldea staff collapsed due a mysterious fever, as the sole “Servant who could move”, Altera, the Sun(ta) jumped out while riding the fine sheep Zerco, all for the sake of Chaldea’s peace and Christmas.

    For Altera - who had her eyes in the civilization called Christmas for quite some time - this role was something desirable.
    Changing into a showy Santa costume, she dived into the sky of the Netherworld.
    The sole point of uneasiness being the chilliness of the Santa costume, which made Altera tilt her head and think:
    Compared to my usual clothes, isn’t this size just too little...?

    While her personality is basically that of Altera’s, since she is currently harboring a slight fever, her usual powers of judgement declined and she became more likely to explain things clearly. It also seems that the cuteness・loveliness of her appearance has increased.
    Due to (thanks to) the fever, her civilization destruction meter has declined considerably.

    The usual Altera is composed of 90% personality of a warrior and 10% personality of a young girl, but the Altera Santa is 40% personality of a warrior 60% personality of a young girl.
    Since Altera’s true nature is girlish and romanticist, she is happy and excited about having been entrusted with the role of Santa Claus.

    As she sees the Master as a reliable partner and a beautiful sheep, she calls him/her “Fluffy Master”.
    Since she is telling herself to act as Santa Claus rather than as Altera, her demeanor・responses are gentler than usual.
    In order to deliver the “precious gift” she was entrusted with by the shining sheep, she is relying on the Master in a straightforward manner.

    Civilization Corrosion: EX
    A skill that Heroic Spirit Altera unconsciously invokes. It transmutes(2) whatever she grabs on her hand into something with the greatest attributes for her current self. This “greatest” does not mean “excellent”, but rather indicates Altera’s own personal obsession.
    It goes without saying what is Altera’s current obsession.
    The horses which she should originally take along as subordinates were all turned into sheep (or something like it), and the Sword of the War God that was her favorite blade has been conversely modified into a Cane (staff) of the War God.

    Gift of the Starrer(3): B
    A skill acquired by turning completely into Santa Claus.
    By giving present, she moisten the heart.
    Although Altera wants to give presents, she cannot quite grasp the desires of others, and also due her modest personality, the rank of this skill is lower than Santa Alter (Artoria). For some reason, the name of this skill has also changed somewhat.

    Rainbow Candy Cane: B

    The star attached on the tip of a Christmas tree is called Star of Bethlehem, and is regarded to symbolize the birth of the messiah.
    It has been said that when Altera’s staff strikes with a ‘pow’, great blessings and graces is bestowed to that person.

    Crest of the Twinkling Star: EX

    A skill that mutated by fusing the peculiar pattern carved in Altera’s body and the concept of Christmas.
    By means of those strong blessing powers, Altera awakens the latent abilities carved in her Saint Graph and becomes capable of operating as Altera Santa on the Earth for only three minutes!
    A super power up of just 3 turns, which puts her life on the line.

    Natural Body: -
    By becoming a Heroic Spirit of Christmas and having the concept of winter added to herself, she can no longer properly control her body temperature and this was unfortunately lost.

    Katsushika Hokusai

    “‘You simply do not look like Hokusai,' you say?
    Well sorry for this lovely figure, but if you want to know the circumstances you better follow listen to what I say!


    An ukiyoe artist from the late Edo period.
    Other than “Katsushika Hokusai”, he also has over 30 other pseudonym such as “Gakyou Roujin” and “Souri”.
    A painter representative of Japan, who greatly influenced foreign painters・musicians such as Gogh and Debussy.
    Known for his very quick painting, he left behind over 30,000 works in his lifetime. Their subject include many topics, such as ukiyoe prints, hand-painted pictures, manga and porn.
    In his later years, he lived together with his third daughter and assistant, Katsushika Oui.
    His masterpieces include the ”Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” series, ”Hokusai Manga”, the ghost painting “Hyaku Monogatari” and the porn The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife(1) and others.
    Known as an oddball of conspicuously eccentric behavior, such as changing residence over 93 times during his lifetime, or being completely indifferent about money despite living in extreme poverty. Also seems like he constantly chanted incantations whenever he got out of home, or something.

    Hokusai and his unconventional personality.
    Despite enthusiastically learning the techniques of various painters, without being particular about any single school, he was also full of a enterprising temperament.
    He adopted the perspective of Western painting, and also employed landscape painting that expresses a cut off moment of motion - which can be regarded as the starting point of modern manga.
    Having manifested in this modern age and become free of the rigid shogunate’s pressure, Hokusai will probably study all forms of art with glee, vigorously challenging himself.
    Be it porn, abstract painting, digital or performance art.

    Paul Bunyan

    A lumberjack that appears on the tall tales from the American Frontier(1), portrayed as a great man that could touch the clouds.
    Several legends of excessively large scale that capitalize on such giganticness exist, and many of the characteristic geographical features of North America are are said to have been created as side-effects of Bunyan’s actions.
    The reason why he was summoned in the shape of a young girl is unknown.

    Just like in legends, she brings along a giant blue ox as her partner, but its shape is that of spherical monster that does not look like an ox at all.
    Maybe this is one of the rumored fearsome critters from the American Frontier, or maybe a UMA(2) of modern times.

    Bunyan loved the people and, believing that surely the development of civilization would bring people’s happiness, she pursues the reclamation of savage lands.
    For the sake of everybody leading a wealthy life, she does not hesitate to destroy the magnificent Mother Nature.
    The young Bunyan still does not understand how this would fare for humanity in the future.

    As a matter of fact, the legend of Paul Bunyan was mostly unknown during the American Frontier.

    Most of the erratic giant’s legend that is commonly known today was fabricated in the early 20th Century. Bunyan is nothing but a shallow forgery that is a folkloric hero in name only. This is thought to be the reason why she does not display the strength she had in legends as a Servant.

    Paul Bunyan is a fake legend, but such pleasant tales continued to be told until today and, even after 100 years have passed, they are still widely known.

    Regardless of how things started, regardless of whatever it is a nonsense that anyone would laugh off, the legend was loved by the people and continued to be told.
    Hopefully, such feelings have also been transmitted to her.

    Nero Claudius (Swimsuit)
    Nero Claudius (Caster)

    When you say summer, it has to be a resort.
    When you say resort, it has to be a high-class hotel.
    When you say high-class hotel, it has to be a special-installation arena!
    Now, the golden theater was changed to everlasting summer specifications, and the Emperor Nero goes Prism In on the summer se---a! As such!
    Taking the sunlight on board the flowing water current!
    This time for sure, my opera will resound on Chaldea!


    Actually, rumor goes that her affinity here is better than in the Saber Class.

    A self-alleged almighty genius.
    While she would act as a cross-dressing beauty (or so she thinks) in the Saber Class, this time she is openly enjoying the summer sea without hiding the fact that she is a beautiful woman.
    The 5th Roman Emperor who possessed a majestic sense of values that combined narcissism and philanthropy in the form of “I love myself, but also love the people around me”.

    Making the utmost best out of the magecraft she learned from Simon Magus, the Emperor Nero perfected a Mystic Code - or rather, a Theatrical Code(1) for her own use.
    The pipe-organs that float beside her body convert her beautiful voice into attack power and lavishly random-fire lasers, fireworks, fire-bullets, etc.

    By the way, why a singing voice produces damage?
    Nero herself does not notice that cruel truth.

    In her innermost thoughts, Nero held complaints for not being invited to the southern island previously.
    She had all the intentions of, this time for sure, jumping on the summer event with a brand new swimsuit. At this time, the Ishtar Cup was held and she triumphantly decided to participate.
    However, a teammate was necessary. Therefore, she called out the Artoria Alter that was walking around nearby and a miraculous team was formed.

    Her beloved machine is Red Venus.
    As for why it was named Venus, please refer to “Fate/EXTELLA”.

    Her racing policy is extremely aggressive.
    She approves of forcibly pressing on those who stand in her way and, after their machines have clashed multiple times, overtaking with speed.

    Because Nero thinks of all teams as “friendly rivals”, she desires to surpass the opponents while being delighted with their merits.
    Alter is simply trying to stand at the top without paying attention to such things. Since their conclusions are identical, they don’t fight - truly a miraculous team.

    While displaying herself as beautiful, that beauty exists for the sake of all those who smile on the beach. However--- (that skill has been lost).

    Having obtained the Saint Graph of “one who sings”, Nero display her talents to maximum effect.
    It ended up becoming a great outdoors stage that carries that singing voice not only inside the golden theater, but also towards its exterior.

    Artoria Alter (Swimsuit)
    Artoria Alter (Rider)

    Even an Alter wears a swimsuit. After all, it is summer.
    However, due some kind of conviction, she has put away the king’s crown and equipped instead a lovely white crown--- a white brim(1).

    Indeed. A maid.

    Alter - the different aspect of the King of Britain, Artoria Pendragon - who has awakened to an even further different conviction.
    Entering the summer season, Artoria cheered up by reexamining herself not as a single tyrant, but merely as a waitress. I understand what you’re saying, but I simply cannot figure out why things became like this.
    Surely, in order to make the summer that Master’s experiences even better, the path of a maid was selected.(2)
    Since the concerned person is attempting to conceal her identity as Artoria, she is masquerading her equipment as various things.

    Excalibur became a mop.
    Sequence(3) became a pistol.
    Her combat style converted to that of a modern soldier.
    Mowing down the opponent with a mop, stopping their movements with a pistol and blowing them up with a grenade.
    Such is a maid.

    Miss Alter succumbed to the temptation of the summer’s charm (though she neither speaks nor is aware of this herself) and ended up changing into a swimsuit.
    I am absolutely not what you would commonly refer as Swimsuit Servant.
    The reason being, because this is a maid
    (4) before being a swimsuit”.
    I see, a fair argument that leave one lost for words.
    However, her personality (which was already overly serious from the start) became even more stern by turning into a maid. She changed into a merciless head house-maid that never turns a blind eye to a self-indulgent Master.

    Participated on the Ishtar Cup together with Nero.
    The team name “Tyrant Shooting Star” was her idea.
    An appropriate naming for a miraculous team in which a famously selfish emperor and a tyrant maid joined forces.

    Her incentive for this race is to show herself as the strongest. Naturally, she desires a (material) reward, but that aside, she is thinking about being useful to the Master.

    Nero thinks that “all teams are rivals”, but there is no team that makes Alter feel that “I definitely cannot lose against these guys”.
    Nero and Alter. A pair that do not sync up their pace, but still joined forces to participate in the Ishtar Cup - Nero for the sake of achievement and amusement, while Alter seeks the reward and to vent out her violent impulses (stress).

    She has no intention at all of probing into the truth hidden behind this race.
    Thanks to being convinced that she is the most cheered by the protagonist, seems that her heart is constantly on a good mood.
    Though her semblance does not appear like that at all.

    Her racing policy is to “not go easy on anyone”.
    Nero steps on the accelerator without thinking of the consequences, while Alter uses the nitro despite taking the consequences into consideration.
    Nero holds “beauty and speed” as supreme, while Alter sees “conciseness and speed” as paramount. In conflict regarding one half, yet on the very same mood regarding the other half - that being the case, these two actually get along well to a great extent.
    ...as expected, isn’t this a miraculous team?

    Independent Action: EX
    The ability to take action even in the absence of a Master.
    Though there is a Master she ought to serve, that is a different matter.

    Frankenstein (Swimsuit)
    Frankenstein (Saber)

    The summer season arrived!
    Hot! Languid! Listless!
    Seeking some refreshingness, the cyborg Fran-chan (who weak in the summer) changes into a swimsuit and challenges a race.
    Her partners are a shady a 50-years-old man and the trans-morphing giant robot Babbage.
    This is like a super epic movie of summer season!

    A Saber Fran who ended up becoming someone who finds most things bothersome due to the summer heat.
    However, she is prone to rampages at opportune times - hahaha, this is so hopeless either way, hahaha.

    Her image is that of “a large breed dog who turned languid due to the summer heat”.

    And the 50-years-old man pushes on her rampage.
    We can only rely on Professor Babbage!
    This team that assembled steam・lightning・wiles has no openings! I think!

    Also, due tampering with her Saint Graph, she ended up becoming a Saber for some reason.

    At summer, even the usually reliable Fran-chan shows a listless state before the Master.

    Lazily idling about while occupying the Master’s bed and basking herself on air-conditioning.
    It’s on the level that makes you want to click on “like!” when someone post a picture on the SNS(1) while saying “My pet won’t move out from the bed. What should I do?

    Since she fundamentally does not have a speck of malice, the Servants who want to occupy said bed out of malice can only watch over her in frustration.

    A mysterious existence appeared on Chaldea.
    That solemnity, that dignity, that brazen figure - who does it belong to after all!?
    It seems to resemble a certain existence from Ancient Egyptian Mythology, but...?

    Nitocris felt ashamed of herself.
    Deeply embarrassed for having been rude to Pharaoh Ozymandias, she covered herself with a gown resembling Medjed while saying “I cannot face him anymore!”.
    (First Ascension)

    However, she conceals within her chest a modest pride as a Pharaoh.
    This is merely her feeling ashamed towards the other Pharaoh.

    For some reason, her Saint Graph changed upon changing attires.
    Even her Noble Phantasm ended up changing by becoming an Assassin Class Servant... but inside she still is the same old Nitocris.
    As usual, she is quick to jump into the wrong conclusion, short of temper and careless.
    A usual run that makes you relieved.

    Her attitude towards the Master also did not changed.
    To the bitter end, for her the Master is an “allied partner”.

    Incidentally, it seems that she was idly thinking about how, once the Ishtar Cup was safely over, “I may as well try to employ this imperial garments of mystery to manufacture a summer dress or something”... but by the time she realized, it turned just like she had thought.

    This tale of revenge - which was recorded in the work of the Greek historian Herodotus, the “Histories” - became the Noble Phantasm of Nitocris when she acquired the Assassin Class.

    Originally, the Demon Lord of the Sixth Heaven-condition was a dangerous mode that could burn to nothing not only gods and buddhas, but even herself as well. Thus, she is sustaining the Demon Lord of the Sixth Heaven-condition on a limited fashion by sealing it on the Berserker Class.

    At this occasion, Helena may be exposing her sisterly nature, motherly nature (or maybe grandma-like nature) a little more forcefully than usual.

    Edison and Tesla decided that, after having to endure much, she now needed to “release some stress”.
    Thus, they participate on the race and let her do as she pleases.
    Helena decided to accept their consideration.
    In other words--- “I must release some stress, and enjoy this summer vacation with all my heart!

    Raikou heard about the considerable disturbance of public morals that took place on the southern island previously.
    Such situation must not happen in this year’s event” - a compulsory Class Change resulted from her dedicating such prayer to the Gozo Tenno. Although not to the extent of her proper Class (Saber), Lancer Minamoto Raikou accomplished a metamorphosis in which her motherly power was inhibited and the disposition of protecting the capital was strengthened.

    Raikou-san turns unbelievably serious when it comes to her main job as a Saber. A super-Public Morals Chairwoman.
    As a Lancer, yeah, she would be like a Public Morals Chairwoman of the shadows. Well, in other words---

    In other words, a sukeban.
    With her motherly power inhibited, Raikou cuts off the summer as a dignified warrior that protects the capital!

    In order to crack down on the public morals, Raikou turned into a Public Morals Chairwoman of the shadows.
    Her catch-phrase is “Ban, ban, definitely banned!
    She has no interest in the outcome of the race that Ishtar is holding and is purely thinking about monitoring the participants that are more likely to take the chance provided by the summer event to cut loose too much.

    Upon accomplishing her third Ascension, she will end up throwing off her sailor uniform due getting into high-spirits and, as a result, bring about a situation where she is the one disturbing public morals the most... but the concerned person has no self-awareness at all. Wait, does she...?

    She consistently looks after the Master with Chairwoman moves such as “You understand right? Just because it is summer, you must not become too immersed in liberal feelings.
    But, Chairwoman, I-I can see it...

    Wow, it seems I am not endowed with a Mental Pollution skill this time around” (unsubstantiated assertion).

    Mad Enhancement: C
    A skill that strengthens physical abilities in exchange of reason.
    Although her mentality is still somewhat broken even after becoming a Lancer, there is still a great difference when compared to when she is a Berserker.
    She has a sense of morals.
    By means of a moral sense, the Lancer Minamoto Raikou monitors disturbances in the public morals of the summer holidays.
    Still, from the way she remains relatively indifferent about her own appearance, as expected, it is impossible to erase the hints of a broken mind...

    Public Morals Chairwoman of the Shadows: A
    A variation of the Eternal Arms Mastership skill.
    No matter in what kind of situation - such as losing her sailor uniform - she will not overlook disturbances of public morals.

    Wheelbarrow of Tempered Steel: C
    When you say sailor uniform, then it should be this”(1) - such misconception from Kintoki ended up infecting Raikou.
    That Raikou (who embodies all martial arts) perfectly handles a steel yo-yo and drives away any and all summer temptations that attempts to disturb Chaldea’s public morals.

    Summer Catastrophe: EX
    It is already amazing without her stripping--- but things become even more amazing once she strips.
    A skill falsely similar to Summer Crisis(2), which denotes how much of people’s stares one ends up gathering on the beach.
    Unlike Beach Flower, it even concentrates gazes that deviate from the domain of yearning.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Shìtí Huányīn・Vajra

    Rank: A+
    Type: Anti-Unit/Anti-Army
    The adamantine mallet of the oriental god Sakra devanam Indra (Indra) - also known as Gozu Tenno. In other words, a Vajra - the final weapon of the gods, created from holy bones - descends and annihilates all enemies---
    Thanks to this Noble Phantasm, at this occasion Raikou’s Class was ultimately established as a Lancer.
    Its shape is that of a tokkosho, which is said to represent the tathata - the real form of all creation according to Vajrayana teachings.

    Ishtar (Swimsuit)
    Ishtar (Rider)

    Goddess of Venus Ishtar, her summer guise.
    She held a grand event after having been impressed by the wild enthusiasm... devotion of people towards summer festivals - truly a goddess-like goddess. Driving the Heavenly Boat Maanna that has been rearranged to a modern style, she is also a kung fu-type goddess who casually, and thrillingly, makes free use of her body.

    Hey everyone, are you all having a fun time~~!? The best~~?
    Yeah yeah, that’s good, that’s good!
    Please keep at it more and more, until your limit okay~!


    Just like this, cordially and generously, she blesses all those who gathered on the venue - truly a goddess among goddesses.

    Now, what exactly lies behind that smiling face.

    Describe as freewheeling, elegant and bold, and cruel.
    The same Goddess Ishtar, but by changing into modern clothes, her haughtiness・dreadfulness as a goddess has softened just a little.

    It is only natural for a goddess to have learned one or two forms of hand-to-hand combat... of course that is not the case.
    The reason why Ishtar can move so skillfully is because the body that became her vessel has properly learned both magecraft and martial arts.
    Her battle style at this occasion is the kung fu that said body had learned rearranged into Ishtar’s own style.
    Uruk Arts! Is there even such a thing?” - such was the comment from a certain king that was sunbathing on top of a ziggurat.

    The bow that Archer Ishtar uses is the detached prow section of the Heavenly Boat Maanna, but this time, she changed the “oar” section of the Heavenly Boat into a scooter and is employing it as a vehicle. Its outward appearance is just like that of a modern scooter, but its performance is naturally goddess-class. It flies on the sky and even undergoes warp.
    An enigmatic creature is constantly squirming about by Ishtar’s feet, but Ishtar maintains a “no comment” policy in regards to said creature.

    Although she is keeping an eye on the Master that saved Uruk as a hero with a promising future, there are also times when she tilts her head in confusion thinking “how can such a pedestrian become a hero?” She is perceiving him/her as a curious human.
    On this occasion, she employed him/her as a staff member of the Ishtar Cup out of expectations for his/her popularity (having the trust of the Servants), but...?

    Will she ever learn her lesson?

    Summer festival, Ishtar Cup.
    That was a great ceremony for the sake of resurrecting Ishtar’s familiar, the Bull of Heaven Gugalanna.
    After having her reputation completely ruined by losing Gugalanna on the day when a calamity struck the Mesopotamian world, Ishtar probably has been vigilantly waiting for a favorable chance to get revenge.

    And the result is what we see at this time.
    I will say it again. Will she ever learn her lesson?

    The Goddess Ishtar converted the precious ritual tools she secretly borrowed from the treasury of Babylon into a Holy Grail, pasted the texture of Venus over the land of Connacht with its power, and then planned to create Gugalanna once more by having powerful Heroic Spirits offer their gratitude (race) over the earth.
    Remodeling the Ishtar Temple into a giant prana resources accumulation circuit(1) was also a part of this. The Ishtar QPS (Quantum-piece Power System) is a devilish money collection installation that sucks prone not only from people, but also Heroic Spirits, making it her own. The more QP is collected, more Ishtar’s divine rank goes up. That deed is truly that of an evil deity among evil deities.

    Riding: EX
    Capable of fully managing the Heavenly Boat Maanna, Ishtar’s Riding skill is extraordinary, on a whole different level than that of humans.
    Of course, just because it is “extraordinary”, that does not mean it is “better・faster” than humans. At any rate, it is “amazing in many different ways”. An Uruk Drive that no longer cares much about things such as time and space.

    Shining Water Garments: A
    A skill that changed the Great Crown into a swimsuit.
    The Great Crown was something that would only affect Ishtar herself, but this can be spread throughout the entire party. In exchange, the output is low.

    Since Maanna has turned into a modern vehicle, the True Name was also converted into a modern style.
    Her style is to enjoy summer with all her might.
    A rainbow Noble Phantasm that is said to convert her happy feelings (acquired by getting merrier while riding on the Maana Scooter and sightseeing various resorts around the globe) into magical power and scattering it across the world’s surface.
    Fair even after changing clothes, the magical power that rains incessantly over the surface turns into glittering stars and bestow damage to enemies.
    The concerned person feels very happy and fabulous, but this is a big nuisance for those on the surface.

    Parvati (Sakura)
    Parvati

    The spouse of Shiva, a supreme deity from Hindu Mythology... that being said, she is a compassionate goddess unrelated to combat.
    Although she is a divine spirit, at this occasion she manifested by borrowing the body of a possessed girl whose wavelength matched hers.

    Chaste, gentle and capable of all sorts of domestic chores - truly the ideal young wife-type heroine, and yet her true identity is---?

    Parvati is the wife of Shiva, the god of destruction and creation from Hindu Mythology.
    Parvati has no Authority as a deity, and is often treated as a goddess who merely is Shiva’s wife.
    However, among Shiva’s wives there are also those who are described as “war deities”. They are Durga and Kali.
    These goddesses have a different Saint Graph than Parvati, but supposedly their divine core is the same.

    Also capable of manifesting in the Rider Class, and she will borrow the Holy Bull Nandi from Shiva in that case. Since it is originally a bull that presides over good harvests, it boasts a low attack power that is unbecoming for divine beasts.

    A goddess that received the light portion of the disposition of the girl who became her vessel.

    A gentle and tolerant personality. Without self-assertion and chaste, a talented woman who supports the Master from the sidelines.
    ... yet, despite having ideal heroine-power and high specs, due being someone far from extravagant who tends to chose a reliable・straightforward path, she appears to be vaguely stupid.

    Also, while she has a midl personality, that does not mean that she is fainthearted, and her core is very strong.
    Her heart does not break regardless of which kind of tortures she receive - in a sense, the embodiment of obstinacy and guts.
    Thanks to that, she is scary once angered for real. Parvati will never forget a received grudge until she is satisfied.

    A Pseudo-Servant composed only by good attributes of the “possessed girl”.
    However, even if she is light, that does not mean that there are no “evil attributes”. Just like there is impurity even within justice, the yandere-vibes of the “possessed girl” - turning into dangerous goods if handled poorly - remain even if just a little.
    That being said, she will only get a little angry and by no means will fall to wickedness. To not deviate from order even while bearing worries is exactly what makes a “light attribute”.

    Since Parvati is a divinity that “has no faults on herself”, the introvertedness and shyness disappeared, and her sociability increased.
    Despite getting angry and sulking at petty things, she is a beauty who properly reflects over things - be them misunderstandings or disagreements - and takes the initiative to pardon and apologize to the other person.

    Parvati is a gentle goddess who is weak in battle.
    That being said, it is not like even her heart is weak.
    Her heart which regards her beloved person is stronger, and deeper, than that of any other deity.
    For the sake of her beloved, she will burn her divinity even at the cost of destroying her own body, turning it into power to fight.
    Though a momentary flame, it is comparable to that of the Goddess of Destruction Kali - one of Shiva’s wives.

    Worthy of special mention is that Shiva's own feelings are irrelevant.
    Parvati has the special trait of rearing love for the sake of her beloved, even if she is ignored by him.
    Although earnest, that love is a little... no, it is mythologically heavy.

    Blessings of the Goddess: A+
    A present from a (good) goddess.
    Derived from the episode in which she cut off her own head and bestowed her blood to a follower who could no longer endure starvation.

    Divine Core of a Goddess: B
    A skill that denotes being a perfected goddess from birth. It is endowed with an effect that preserves the absoluteness from the mind and the body. Mental interferences are mostly mitigated, the body does not grow and the figure does not change no matter how much calories are absorbed.
    Since she is a Pseudo-Servant, it goes no further than B Rank. But that is inconsequential.
    The figure! Does not! Change!

    Parvati’s Class is determined by which weapon Shiva bestows her. Thanks to the Trishula, Parvati acquired the qualifications for the Lancer Class.
    Of course, she cannot display the true worth of this weapon like Shiva, but that is conversely helping maintain her framework as a Servant.


    Tomoe
    Tomoe Gozen

    She will probably smile gently.
    So long fury does not completely fill her heart.

    As a scion of ■■■■, she is conspicuously endowed with a savage disposition, but by containing that to the brink thanks to her feelings towards her beloved one, she has acquired individuality as a calm human woman.
    ---or so it seems.

    Her years of birth and death are unknown. An individual from the late Heian・early Kamakura periods.
    The beloved concubine of Kiso no Yoshinaka (Minamoto no Yoshinaka), the famous general who earned the title of Seii Taishogun(1) and was defeated by Minamoto no Yoritomo.
    Constantly by Yoshinaka’s side, a brave woman who frequently accomplished military achievements.
    Excelling in military prowess, she was famed as a mighty warrior.
    The daughter of Nakahara no Kaneotoo, the younger sister of Higuchi Kanemitsu and Imai Kanehira - both regarded as part of the Kiso Big Four - and a milk sibling of Yoshinaka.

    In “Kiso’s Last Moments”, the 9th chapter of “The Tale of the Heike” written by Kakuichi, she was portrayed as “of lovely long hair, of truly outstanding features. Exceptionally strong with a bow, a soldier that matched a thousand, always ready to face even a demon or a god, be it mounted or on foot”.
    In other words, fair-skinned, of long hair, a great archer with outstanding features. A beautiful, mighty warrior - that is Tomoe Gozen.

    Despite continuing to love her lord Yoshinaka, she was not able to be with him in his last moments---
    A woman warrior that keeps concealing that single regret in her chest.
    That gentle sadness was transmuted into flames of resentment by Ashiya Doman during the “Seven Contests of Master Swordsmen Heroic Spirits”, turning into an aberration of wild flames(2) that burned the Sagami Province to ashes.
    Originally, she is a willowy maiden. Shunning the conflict between people, and preferring the beauty of nature.

    Tomoe Gozen’s view on life and death is clear-cut. She unquestionably believes that a transient guest called Servant such as herself should silently disappear from the world eventually. In “Absolute Magical Beast War Front - Babylonia”, she had no hesitations in chosing a simultaneous kill with the enemy general Girtablulu.

    Mochizuki Chiyome

    Curse, this blood of mine.
    Curse, this sin of mine.
    No matter how much time passes, there is something here that cannot be washed away.


    A woman of the late Warring States period whose name was recorded in the documents of Netsumura, Shinshu(1).
    She is regarded as a female ninja (kunoichi) that served the Takeda clan of the Kai Province and a descendant of Mochizuki Izumo-no-Kami, but it is unsure whether she was actually a ninja.

    In a sense, her existence--- may be a sarcastic answer to the proposition called “renowned ninja”, which is a contradiction for a ninja that should make a principle to keep his activities covert.

    In this work, Chiyome is an existence endowed with grotesque powers, having inherited a curse cast by a god from her ancestor Kouga Saburou.
    At the same time that she works as a shinobi for the sake of her lord... she dedicates prayers as a single miko of serpent in order to appease the aramitama of a god.

    Houzouin Inshun
    Houzouin Inshun

    It can be a spear to thrust, a naginata to cleave, a sickle to slash; in any case, it never fails to hit the target--- such is the famous cruciform spear of the Houzouin.
    Houzouin Inshun is the second generation master of the Houzouin-ryuu spearmanship, and a man whose skill is extolled as reaching gods and buddhas.

    Houzouin Inshun, born as Mitsuta Gennosuke(1). As the successor of the Houzouin, he received lectures in the ways of monks and spearmen from In'ei, founder of the Houzouin-ryuu spearmanship.
    At the time, the Houzouin spear was already widely known thanks to In'ei. That is because, the one who improved the base spear that until then served only for thrusting - bringing forth the ground-breaking cruciform spear that could slice, sweep and knock, in addition to thurst - was this In'ei.

    However, In'ei abandoned the spear.
    It is not proper for one who serves Buddha to learn spearmanship”.
    If you intend to serve Buddha, you should abandon the spear”.
    He died at the age of 87, while leaving such words for his successor, Inshun.

    However, Inshun did not gave up on spearmanship.
    A member of the Houzouin should walk on both the path of Buddha and the path of the spear--- like this, he revived the Houzouin-ryuu spearmanship.

    Yagyuu Munenori
    Yagyuu “Tajima-no-Kami” Munenori

    One of the strongest swordsmen of the Edo Yagyuu.
    A demon of rationality that gaze at everything with a reasoning of ice, unswayed by emotion.
    Methodology equals rationality; in other words, by mastering the sword, everything will naturally be fulfilled without any futility---

    Never speaking of his passions, he does not become impetuous or impatient.
    Thoroughly carries out the optimal, shortest measures in order to achieve an objective with the utmost coolness. A man of ice and steel who is reliable as an ally, but extremely terrifying once he becomes an enemy.

    A genius of the sword known as the child of Yagyuu Sekishuusai and the father of Yagyuu Jubei.
    It has been said that, during the siege of Osaka (1615 AD), he protected the Shogun Hidetada by cutting down seven warriors in an instant.
    After his death, Shogun Iemitsu extolled him as “peerless in swordsmanship”.

    A strategist and politician. Not only he instructed many daimyou and their younger relatives in the Shinkage-ryuu, but also sent his disciples to serve influential daimyou as swordsmanship intructors.
    In historical novels and historical plays, he is often regarded as an extraordinary plotter.
    This is probably out of the notion that, in the early Edo period, it would be impossible to raise the Yagyuu clan up to a social position of a daimyou with 12,500 koku just by being honest and upright.

    With excellent foresight, it has been said that he quickly saw through the expansion of the Shimabara Rebellion.
    In the 14th year of the Kan'ei era (1637 AD), right after news of a rebellion by Christian believers arrived, Munenori frantically tried to hold back Itakura “Naizen-no-Kami” Shigemasa, who was tasked with leading a punitive expedition. It has been said that, when asked why by Shogun Iemitsu, Munenori answered “religious wars are always a serious matter” and “Mr. Shigemasa will likely die in battle”.

    The situation progressed as Munenori predicted. Shigemasa - a daimyou of 15,000 koku - was lacking in strength despite leading all the western daimyou and found himself forced into a hard fight as a result. As he saw the situation turn grimmer, Shogun Iemitsu dispatched his chief vassal, Matsudaira Nobutsuna, to act as supreme commander, but Shigemasa became impatient upon learning that and attempted an assault on the enemy camp before Nobutsuna arrived, dying tragically in the process.

    There are anecdotes of Munenori having criticized Musashi’s existence during his lifetime. He said things such as “Musashi is a member of the Western Army” and “an enemy of Tokugawa”.

    In his lifetime, Munenori never clashed with nor even met Musashi, but was in fact mindful about him---
    or so has been established in this work. Thus, he was fixated with showdown with Musashi during the “Seven Contests of Master Swordsmen Heroic Spirits”. Despite knowing that she was a different person than the “Miyamoto Musashi” from his own world.

    The Munenori who was summoned to Chaldea as a Heroic Spirit has recognized Musashi’s skills and way of being. As for what he thinks of the “Miyamoto Musashi” of his own world... that remains unknown for now.

    Katou Danzou
    Katou Danzou

    A thief, spy whose name can be seen in Kanazoushi, military sciences documents from the early Edo period---
    In other words, a ninja.
    Known by the alias “Flying Katou” or “Kite Katou”, while her activities in the Kai and Echigo Provinces have been reported, her origins and objectives are wrapped in mystery, with various theories existing about it.

    There are legends about how Katou Danzou operated puppets, karakuri dolls, but those are legends derived from the fact that “Danzou herself was a doll”--- so is the setting in this work.

    A ninja descended from the Fuuma, who was mostly active during the late Warring States period.
    However, her true identity is that of a karakuri doll manufactured by the sorcerer・Kashin Koji. An artificial female ninja (kunoichi) molded with the cooperation of the first Fuuma Koutarou, and not a living human. However, as a result of accomplishing many duties and being talked about even in later literature, her existence was carved in human history as a Heroic Spirit.

    A karakuri ninja of few emotions, quite mechanical.
    Karakuri girl.
    She did not possessed free will in her lifetime, and was just a mechanical doll that just abided by the orders inputted in her--- or so she defined herself. But, upon being carved in human history as a Heroic Spirit and manifesting as a Servant, she began to consider that maybe she might be allowed to think - and have feelings - just like humans. She wants to do so, if allowed.

    Producing a vacuum blade and, after drawing in the target, pulverizing him by compression. An application of the illusion of swallowing up a bull that was described in “Otogi Houko”.
    Thanks to a Mystic Code that Kashin Koji himself included, this is endowed with demonic-slaying properties.
    Just like the anecdotes, it also possible to employ illusions of “erasing objects from before people’s eyes” and “make erased objects appear before their eyes again”, but those are fundamentally not employed in FGO.

    Sherlock Holmes
    Sherlock Holmes

    The world’s sole and greatest consulting detective.
    The crystallization of the concept of detective; the representative of “those who reveals”.
    The protagonist of the stories that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in the 19th~20th Century, he is a detective who explains all enigmas and one of the ancestors of the “detectives” that appear on the many mystery novels of later years—--
    Or so it is assumed.
    But what is really the truth?

    Thoughtful and yet dynamic. Bold and yet precise.
    And also a calm, level-headed man.
    No sort of enigma, crime and conspiracy can escape Holmes’ sight. Be that a fearsome murderer, an ancient curse, a monster of the dark night or a supranational secret society; he shall disclose them all--- and defeat them if necessary. By means of a sharp sword called truth.

    That way of being has already exceeded the realms of men, and is already the embodiment of a “wise one”, “one who reveals”.

    Heroic Spirit Holmes is the fake resemblance of Dr. Joseph Bell (his model), Doyle himself, and the world oldest detective, Vidocq---
    Not. He manifest as the protagonist of a novel series (or so we are lead to believe by his behavior).

    In the end, is the story of Sherlock Holmes a literary creation invented by Sir Doyle, or something written down by Dr. John H. Watson as a romantic tale about the real Holmes, or maybe even a blend between these two?
    At the very least, Holmes himself should know this. But he never speaks of it himself, and constantly evades the subject in a non-serious way whenever it comes up.

    For argument’s sake, if he was really originated from the stories, then there is a possibility of not only Doyle’s novels but also its pastiches having been included... according to the Chaldea staff’s gossips.

    Innate Discernment: A++
    The ability to perceive the true nature of things. His sharp eyes for observation will not overlook any sort of information. Although their principles are completely different, this can read into the future in a way that is similar to the future prediction of Clairvoyance.

    Baritsu: B++
    Learned an Oriental martial arts that is extremely real combat-oriented.
    Other than employing striking techniques that combine this skill with boxing, Sherlock Holmes also have counters and grappling throws as his forte.
    If the conditions are right, he can even employ a special move that is in par with the release of True Name of a Noble Phantasm, but...

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Elementary, My Dear - This is an Elementary Matter, My Friend

    Rank: B
    Type: Anti-Unit/Anti-World
    The Noble Phantasm that Sherlock Holmes acquired upon manifesting as a Servant. His Origin - “Elucidation” - sublimated as a Noble Phantasm.
    Even if the enigma he faces is truly an existence that cannot be explained, clues and paths for reaching the truth will always “appear”.
    Even if there was a treasure chest whose key has been lost, said key will turn out to be “not lost”, and would certainly be possible to locate it somewhere in the world.
    (However, as expected, it will not suddenly appear in his hands. Either Holmes or his collaborators must find it, wherever it may be).

    Originally a constantly active-type of Noble Phantasm, but release of True Name is performed in “Fate/GO”.
    Upon release of True Name, an unidentified “sphere” appears, emitting a dazzling light on the surroundings. It weakens the enemy camp and strengthens the ally camp. Even an against an unbeatable opponent, Holmes will discover a path to defeat him.

    Also, its True Name is one of the famous words associated with Holmes, yet the first instance in which it was attributed to him was not on Doyle’s novels, but actually the stage play produced・scripted・starred by William Gillette. It has been said that Doyle praised the Holmes played by Gillete as “surpassing my novels”.
    Incidentally, the common assumption is that Gillete conceived it based on Holmes’ “elementary” remark towards Watson from Doyle’s short story - “The Adventure of the Crooked Man”.

    Hijikata Toshizou

    Hijikata Toshizou - the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, a public order organization that was mostly active in the Kyoto of the Edo period's closing days.
    Widely imposing absolute order within the company, he was feared as the merciless vice-commander by the soldiers - who were all master swordsmen.
    A rare type of Berserker, who displays both the savagery of an evil spirit and the rational aspects of a tactician in battle.

    A ‘gumurai’(1) who threw away his pale blue haori, put on western clothing, picked up a gun and continued to fight against the changing era in order to follow through with his own truth.
    Although a Berserker, normal conversations are possible.
    Contrary to his demon-like fighting style, in the battlefield he is a pragmatist who also has the flexibility to employ any means necessary to win.
    When the Master that summoned him has given up to fight, he will instantly become a target for purging.

    Rank:

    Type: Anti-Unit
    He himself, only himself, and so long he exists, the flag of truth is indestructible. A Noble Phantasm that interweaves his intense conceit and madness.
    While invoked, degradation of physical abilities due to damage to the flesh are temporarily negated and it becomes possible to employ all means to continue fighting until the enemy has been defeated. However, this is a two-edged sword that spurts out all the stockpiled damaged one go once the period of effect has finished.

    The sword of carnage of Hijikata Toshizou - the war-demon that made all the soldiers of the master swordsmen-filled Shinsengumi say “I may not lose, but I don’t think I can win against Hijikata either”.
    Those circumstances are truly a reproduction of his lifetime of continuous battle; while invoked his surroundings turn into a battlefield where bullets fly and signal guns roar.
    While this may appear to be similar to an Anti-Army Noble Phantasm that summon a large number of people, its true nature is completely different. Everything is a manifestation of his madness about how “the Shinsengumi is here even now”.

    Chacha
    Chacha

    The niece of Oda Nobunaga - hegemon of the Warring States - and the concubine of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the Child of the Sun.
    Naive and arrogant, a super-spendthrift that enjoys gorgeous luxuries at any given opportunity - simply put, a woman that demands work and money.
    A lovely, mischievous princess with a willfulness that greatly troubled even a head of government, and yet you cannot hate her for some reason.
    That being the case, there is already something I want to have!

    The eldest of the three Azai sisters, Chacha.
    A daughter of Azai Nagamasa, a Warring States daimyo from the Oumi Province, that had as her mother the younger sister of Oda Nobunaga, Oichi.
    She experience a castle fall three times in her lifetime, and at each time she lost her father, her mother, and finally everything that she had.
    A tragic woman who was branded as the wicked servant who ruined Toyotomi by the later masses.
    ...T-those are false accusations!

    Although you cannot tell at all from her appearance and behavior, even now her body continues to be burned by the flames of resentment from those related to Toyotomi.
    Although Toyotomi’s ruin was not necessarily her fault alone, one cannot begin to infer about her heart, who in the end lost even her beloved child amidst the flames.
    Maybe the reason why she has manifested while avoiding her golden age’s form is because the short time when she was allowed to remain in this form was something irreplaceable in her life.

    Meltlilith
    Meltlilith

    The Alterego of pleasure.
    One of the Alteregos created from BB.
    A super-offensive Alterego possessing a poisonous honey that melts everything, metal feet that tears anything that touches it to pieces and a personality filled with merciless sadism.
    She has top-class comprehensive performance even among all the Alteregos produced by BB, and surpasses even BB in regards to drain functions. For that reason, she lacks in respect towards BB and, also, makes light of the other Egos. Due being self-aware as perfected specimen, she is very prideful.

    I have a predisposition to sadism that even I think badly of.
    Honestly, I cannot resist throughly kicking down someone who dislikes it.


    With a body that is truly like a water queen, but her flesh has more the shape of a delicate, lovely girl than any other ego.

    Belligerent and ruthless. Plus having sadistic preferences.
    With a taste for structural beauty, she is a fastidious individual who does not tolerate ugly things.
    Prideful enough to brag about being a perfect existence and how she alone can accomplish anything.

    Displaying a sullen attitude in which she looks down on humans, is disappointed at everything and finds anything boring, but that is just the other side of her wish of “wanting to see something beautiful”.
    Since Meltlilith is an Alterego born from “a girl’s wish”, she has the same roots as Passionlip - that of longing for a Prince Charming.

    Ruthless, but that is just her being prudently rational;
    Merciless, but that is just her fairness in ascertaining things;
    With sadistic preferences, but that is just her helpful qualities of wanting nothing but to meddle with the one that she likes.

    Due being aware of the fact that she is a monster, she does not think that is possible to come to an understanding with humans.
    As such, she continues to behave as a monster. Still, should she fall in love, she will attend to him regardless of the fact that she is monster - a prima donna who lives for love.

    The reason why she does not desire to understand・sympathize with others, in spite of trying to absorb them, is because Meltlilith does not comprehend the feelings of others.

    She does not need others.
    She cannot share love or dreams.
    Should someone like her obtain “love”, she would devote everything to attend to the target of that love.

    For the self-sufficient Meltlilith, there is no merit in taking the target’s feelings into consideration.
    She will just assert that her own affections are correct with a high-handed behavior.

    Having no intention to discuss things with each other (for she already loves him to the point that she feels no need to), no desire to come in contact with each other (for such degree of pleasure is already unsatisfactory to her), nor showing any signs of telling that she wants to be loved (for such mutual understanding is already unnecessary).

    Truly, a domineering ego that secretly devotes herself.
    What lies behind the constant condescending attitude of her high-handed behavior, is a much too pure “heart in love”, without a single doubt or taint in it.

    *The height includes the heels. The weight excludes the heels. One can read into Meltlilith’s personality through this way of reporting things.

    Possessing the properties of a liquid, she is a complete fluid that conceal the potential of becoming an ocean itself upon reaching full growth... That being said, for some reason she ended up idolizing classical ballet and is now finicky about having human limbs.

    High Servant: A
    An artificial Servant created by combining the essence of multiple mythologies. She possesses the factors of Artemis, Leviathan and Saraswati.

    Predisposition to Sadism: A
    A skill that applies plus modifiers to one’s aggressiveness during combat. Tends to appear as a plus skill, but because the sadistic nature of those who possess this grows the more battle drags on, they end up losing their usual composure.

    Crime Ballet: A
    Simply a battle style.
    Numerous attack skills that came into existence as a result of Meltlilith (who idolizes classical ballet) readjusting herself.
    To begin with, Meltlilith is an ego born from BB’s “pleasure” and “attendance demand”, and her true nature is that of an abnormal, lovely girl that cannot help but to covet caring for her man- or so it was. It is believed that her idolizing for ballet comes from that image, but the influence of a skill that continues to rob another’s abilities created her present belligerent personality.

    Melt-Virus: EX
    An unique ability that Alteregos are born with, called id_es.
    A cheat skill evolved from the skill “absorption”.
    The highest grade of energy drain. It makes drain, copy and scale down possible.
    So long it has a shape, she can drain anything regardless of it being an organic matter or an inorganic substance. But in regards to those without shape - things such as skills or mentality - while she can fuse with them, apparently it is difficult to convert them into “her own possessions” and she can only turn them into simple nourishment.
    Because of that, what Meltlilith can turn into “her own possessions” are mainly “experience points” and “capacity”.

    Neurological Disorder: -
    Of her five senses, Meltlilith’s sense of touch has degraded.
    Especially the sensation of her hands—--her fingers have been almost completely lost, and this made her assertive towards connecting with the outside world.
    In the end, even her sadistic preferences are regarded as being derived from how “she cannot feel the existence of others by herself”.

    One of the Alteregos created from BB.
    The Alterego of love and hate.
    A girl whose oversized breasts and atrocious nails leave quite an impression.
    Although she does not like fighting, the skill Predisposition to Suffering causes her to be assaulted by the surroundings and she has no choice but to fight back.
    The foremost power-character even among the Alteregos.
    The personification of reckless courting that wraps, twists off and buries the beloved person in her breasts in order to monopolize him... or so it was, but she reformed herself after learning from a certain encounter that an one-sided courting is no good, growing into an withdrawn but compassionate AI that remains careful so that the many dangerous weapons on her body cause no harm to the surroundings.

    Introverted, earnest and with a personality prone to wild assumptions.
    She has a bad habit of placing the blame on others (the surroundings) when things don’t turn out well and then secluding herself on a her shell.
    In CCC, such disposition - earnest, and yet unable to take the initiative of approaching the target of her love - was demonstrated in the form of stalker behavior, but she began to moderate such stalker disposition after recognizing her mistakes・faults, aiming at “properly makes an effort, and properly become friends with him”.
    However, her laziness (taking any pretext to skip out work) remains unchanged, something that she herself is aware as bad and i
