    Five regal-looking pretty boys in various costumes. Could work for Kings, royals, and the like. Honestly they look great, but I haven't found a sheet that would fit them just yet. Might as well put this here.

    Oberon
    Oberon

    Introduced in the "Fairy Round Table Territory Avalon le Fae".
    A Servant summoned in the land of Britain in order to defeat Morgan, who ruled over the Fairy Nation Britain.
    Although a fairy handed down in the British Isles from ancient times, the traits of the Fairy King introduced in the Shakespearean play "A Midsummer Night's Dream" have became strongly apparent in this Oberon.

    While his combat prowess is somewhat decent, he excels better in intelligence gathering, combat support. A hard worker who bustles about and truly makes the utmost efforts in order to make Chaldea's mission a success.
    Our reliable Fairy King, who does his best for the sake of Britain's proper future.

    Most likely, the most famous "Oberon" in the world is probably the Fairy King that appears in the Shakespearean play "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
    In said play, Oberon is portrayed as possessing tremendous power, but with a self-centred and childish character.

    "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is the tale about an one-night turmoil that has the lovers Lysander and Hermia as its leading pair.
    The Oberon that appears in this story causes a breakup with his consort Titania over her new page and, as retribution, attempted to make said page his own by employing a drug that "makes one fall in love with the person before them upon waking up".
    However, due to the truancy habits of Oberon's valet, Robin Goodfellow, Lysander and Demetrius also end up taking the drug...



    In addition, there are others stories dealing with Oberon.
    In the 15th Century work "Huon of Bordeaux", he is portrayed as a magic user, a king that rules over a forest of fairies.

    A handsome man with white skin, silver hair and blue eyes.
    A compassionate pacifist that is both gentle and active.
    Due to a thoughtful personality, he takes the utmost care when executing a plan・strategy, but he never misses the timing to take a shot. He suppresses a situation by means of a cocksure aggressiveness (which may appear barbaric depending on how you look at it).

    A perfect prince of light, much like the character of a fairy-tale.
    The protagonist of a story who is simply sly.
    Despite smiling like an adult, he retains boyish mannerisms. Despite being a boyish fantasizer, he possesses the political power, execution powers(1) of an adult.

    Despite being educated, he does not boast about it.
    Despite having high ideals, he does not enforce them on people.
    Despite being a weakling, he does not abide to violence.
    Despite being the greatest prince of light in fairy history, he cannot take to a wife.

    "I like happy circumstances. That is because, just like how bugs need clean water, fairies cannot subsist without this."

    "My True Name? Let's see, it would be fine to simply call me Fairy King Oberon, but it also convenient to have as much appellations as possible. Things like Prince of Winter, or maybe Robin Goodfellow... or something like that. Well, there is quite a lot, you know?"

    Territory Creation: E-
    The ability to build one's own encampment・workshop as a magus.
    Once the king of the "forest of fairies", but as the time changed he ended up losing his dominions and becoming an existence that just wandered over stories.
    Due to that, his Territory Creation skill amounts to its lowest rank. Paradoxically, this skill denotes how Oberon is "now a king in name only".
    The person himself is trying to keep this a secret, so he does his best not to reveal that he has a low Territory Creation ability.

    Item Construction: A+
    The ability to manufacture tools. He is a top-ranking craftsman in regards to tools that mislead the heart, such as the "dew of three-colored grass" that could curse even the Fairy Queen Titania.

    Riding: A
    In English Fairy History, fairies supposedly ride on bugs when travelling.
    Since Oberon himself is a king, he consistently moves around elegantly with his own wings. But when away from public gaze, he rides on a hawkmoth (flight speed of 130km/h) and goes rushing to all regions, guiding the hearts of people.

    Veil of the Night: EX
    The arrival of the night brings about a rise of fighting spirit to his own party by means of an enormous experience of success, escape from reality.
    Mostly identical to Merlin's "Charisma of Dreams".

    Morning Lark: EX
    The start of the morning brings about an enormous increase of mental exaltation, self-evaluation to his own party.
    A momentary coercive doping. It increases the magic power of the target, but that lasts only for a short while. Something that is lost as times passes, so use your Noble Phantasm as scheduled...

    Divinity: -
    Oberon's consort Titania possesses divinity due to being a fairy produced(2) as a combination of various fairies and goddesses (Mab, Diana, Titan). But since he himself is a "king of fairies" without any impurities mixed in, Oberon has not acquired divinity.

    Rank:

    Type: Anti_unit

    A counting song about an impossible paradise, told by Oberon.
    By spreading the wings in his back widely and scattering his scales, he forcibly converts the target's flesh (Saint Graph) into a mental body of the dream world, suspending his execution powers(1) in the real world. A High-Thaumaturgy falsely similar to a Reality Marble. Or so it seems.
    In exchange of becoming invincible, those who fall into a dream become incapable of interfering with the real world.



    (1) as in "the capacity to get things done"

    (2) the Japanese term used here (創作, sousaku) refers specifically to a literary creation


    Vortigern
    Oberon Vortigern

    His true identity is not that of a Heroic Spirit from Pan-Human History, but rather a Servant that was given birth in the Fairy Nation Britain.
    A doomsday device that curses the world, born from the folklore of destruction told in the Fairy Nation Britain... the bug of the abyss that turns everything to nothing.
    The name Oberon is merely something he goes by in Pan-Human History.
    His name in the Fairy Nation is Vortigern. That is the same name as the Vile King Vortigern, the guide of destruction that sold over Britain to a different ethnic group in Pan-Human History.

    The great liar Oberon. Even his name, very existence is a lie.
    Upon revealing his true colors, he will raise the corner of his lips and declare that "there is not a single thing that I love", without being shy about it.
    ...naturally, this is also a lie. After all, there is nothing worth deeming a truth in his words.

    The "Autumn Forest" located in the outskirts (Wales) of the Fairy Nation.
    A forest of the "powerless bug-type fairies", of the "small fairies that, due to their low intellect and innocence, couldn't mingle with the fairies of the Fairy Nation, who imitated human society".

    This forest was a place where the fairies that could not fit in the Fairy Nation, that ran away after being bullied or that were persecuted just existing (under the pretext of "do not spread your poison") would gather and then die out while being at loss for what to do.
    In this forest that belonged to "those who had nowhere else to go", "those who had no choice but to rot away while being hated, being forgotten", the Vortigern of this generation - Oberon - emerged.

    Oberon is both a Servant given birth by the British Isles and a doomsday device (Vortigern) produced by the British Isles.
    Up until now, it had manifested as a "malice" of many forms (the "King of Mors" was also one of them) and attempted to lead the British Isles to its destruction, but had been thwarted twice by Morgan, after she established the Queen's Calendar. "Oberon" was then created as its third output method.
    Although highly popular in the Fairy Nation due to possessing a figure similar to the most elegant of the Wind Clan (or maybe even the Wing Clan), he is not in fact a fairy but nothing more than a single bug that was given birth (ended up being born) in the vomit and excreta possessed by the island - the "feelings of repugnance towards living beings" such as "it is disgusting to see a history that died out long ago continue for more than 10,000 years", or "I want to get rid of everything that lives in this island, all the traces of this island".

    But ironically, while the British Isles outputted his as the "Ancient Fairy Oberon", he ended up being clad with the Saint Graph of the "Fairy King Oberon" due to the influence of the Pan-Human History that was mixed in by Morgan.
    This is the reason why the "objective as a doomsday device" and the "way of being as the Fairy King Oberon" got mixed up inside of him.

    A handsome man possessing sharp limbs, sunk blue eyes and a hair that looks like a dark shadow. A complete evil influence, almost like a villain that appears in a fairy-tale. A prince of darkness.

    Since all his words and deeds turn into lies, he never speaks the truth.
    Despite saying that seeing people's downfall is his raison d'être, it is impossible to tell if these are his true feelings or just another lie.
    The reason why he makes the surrounding people unhappy by causing them to fall is not due to something like "I love only myself. I alone should be happy", but because he "simply feels that everyone is disgusting".
    He has no love for others, and also, no love for himself at all.

    Due possessing the Fairy Eyes that see the truth, he looks down on everything that is reflected in his eyes and refreshingly laughs while hiding the discomfort that constantly fills his chest.

    While his public face is entirely an act, Oberon's lies are not a "sham" due to being perfect. They are also his "true face", as he can keep on living in such a manner if he feels inclined to it.
    That being said, since he is cursed into "lying no matter what he does", there is no meaning to his true feelings.

    He will never hold affection towards all people, all living things.
    As far as Oberon is concerned, humans and fairies are both targets of elimination.
    "They are eyesores despite being insignificant existences, and look so happy despite being so disgusting".
    Since Oberon himself can never feel "happiness" in his entire life, all other lifeforms - which can acquire happiness just by being alive, without any troubles or hardwork - are incomprehensible and outright eyesores for him.

    End of the Dream: EX
    A dream of closing years. A strengthening skill applied in a single target.
    The Servant that receive this obtains an unparalleled boost of abilities, but lose all effects at the end of the turn and fall into an eternal sleep.

    ---those who lose their dreams will never again have the strength to awaken in reality.

    Fairy Eyes: -
    Not the mystic eyes that people possess, but the field of vision that "switches over the world", which fairies are endowed with from birth.
    These eyes that see through all lies and project the truth acutely flaunts the malice・defects・dispositions possessed by intelligent creatures to Oberon.

    Anti-Anthropic Principle: D
    The power to call a "halt" to everything that humanity has produced, all the laws that work to the benefit of humanity.
    Originally, this is a skill possessed by the "Beast Class".
    Possessing neither hatred nor resentment, Oberon simply can't help but to wish to eradicate humanity as naturally as drawing a breath. So, he acquired the same skill as the human vices after a long period of deception and dissimulation.
    Frankly speaking, this is a malice that nonchalantly leads the trends of people's hearts (the surrounding mood) into a bad, low and cheap direction.

    Also, his compatibility with Merlin (who is also a denizen of the dream world) is incurably bad, so he rejects any support from Merlin.
    A divide born from their differing stances towards stories, Oberon assigns his camouflage abilities almost completely against Merlin.
    Because of this, Merlin cannot perceive Oberon, so when he sees someone talking to Oberon through Clairvoyance, it will simply look like said individual is talking to himself.

    A Midsummer Night's Dream: EX
    A curse Oberon has carried ever since he emerged.
    "All is but fleeting dreams.
    None of the events that happened is worth of being deemed true---
    "
    The most famous fairy drama in the world - "A Midsummer Night's Dream" - came to an end in this manner, but that in turns represents Oberon's disposition.
    In human history, his words and deeds were discriminated as "lies no matter what he did" and, as a result, he ended up receiving a curse of "having no (being unable to say the) truth".



    "You pieces of shit. I will crush you all one day".
    Oberon will never say that such aggressiveness of his is not born out of envy or hatred, but derived from his love towards Titania.

    Not something that kills the opponent, but a "path to another world" that drops him into an abyss without a single speck of light.


    Okita Alter (Swimsuit)
    Okita Souji (Alter)

    A final-battle Heroic Spirit adjusted for the sake of just a single radiance... or so it should have been, but for some reason she underwent a mysterious evolution into a style that changed into a swimsuit to enjoy the summer.
    Also known as "Swimsuit Genie(1)・Okita Souji Alternative".

    By the way, who is the one beside her? A lost child perhaps?

    A different aspect of Okita Souji and an extremely peculiar Heroic Spirit whose Saint Graph was adjusted, transformed in order to be employed by the Counter Force... or so it should have been, but she has been reconfigured once the battlefield at this occasion had been established as a vacation in a southern island. Or rather, since not only her base parameters, but even her armor and weapons were rebuild into new metallic variants, this is more like a model change to the level of being considered a brand new Heroic Spirit. Something like, Miss Genie Mark-IX.

    Although this is the so called swimsuit form, she has manifested as a Saber - the Class that she was originally suited for. Her Third Ascension is a super power-type extermination form, intended to bring about the complete collapse of a frontline by means of induction of a single unit.

    The swimsuit form of the final fate of a possibility that Okita Souji - who died while still young - might have reached.

    "---no way, no way. Where exactly my owner is heading to?"

    This condition of Genie・Okita Souji (also called Okita Alter) has a somewhat detached relationship to the Saint Graph discussed below - an impossible (but that might have existed) figure, from before she became worn down from a long period of battle. Consequentially, she may appear (to some extent) more rich in emotions and passion than the original Okita Alter.

    ...so, as you see, those two were separated during the reconfiguration of Saint Graph at this occasion, but that is due to her weapon, Rengoku, cutting off a portion of Okita Alter's Saint Graph and fusing it with himself. This was done so that he could move as an independent Saint Graph.
    Originally, Rengoku was a safety measure to meant for sealing away Okita Alter's immense power and annihilating her main body whenever she went on a rampage - a nice-sounding self-destruction mechanism.

    However, after spending a long time fighting together, he obtained an ego and uncounsiously developed a will to erase himself, who was mechanism meant to kill Okita Alter.

    Such will was brought to the surface in this summoning, causing him to cut off the self-destruct portion of Okita Alter's Saint Graph and manifest in the figure of an independent, small Okita Alter.

    "I was going to take this opportunity to disappear. By doing so, it was possible that my owner could escape this absurd fate. That was supposed to be the case, so why does my owner keeps trying to use someone like me again?"

    "Oh, I see, that's right. Even though my owner was fated to continue that long, much too long, hopeless battle; in that unlimited sky, she..."

    "Yes..."

    "It was a long, much too long time. But I was always..."

    "...happy"(2)

    Independent Action: A
    It is possible to mobilise independently during the summer break as the swimsuit form of a Guardian of the Counter Force. Since she has been adjusted with the intent of manifesting during a hopeless situation in the beach and single-handedly exterminating the target (or maybe bringing about their mutual destruction by means of elopement), its rank is high.

    Magic Resistance: A
    Since her armor itself has been reconstructed to be used by the Saber Class, she is endowed with a Magic Resistance that the original Okita cannot hold a candle to. Weak Constitution? I left such a thing back home. Her favorite shaved ice syrup is Blue Hawaii. Sengoku-chan is a dignified Strawberry Milk.

    "By the way, Regoku got used to sleep quite soundly. Isn't that cute?"

    "There is nothing cute about me dozing off, right? That being said, why is this Saint Graph so unmanageable!?"

    Genie Sword: B++
    The acme of the sword that Okita Alter will supposedly arrive at. The artistry possessed by the eternally undefeated sword, accumulated at the end of a long, long conflict.
    An incomprehensible doctrine that is incomplete, yet nears completion. A mere shadow of the glimmer called Okita Souji, which reached the far beyond.

    Rengoku: B
    A comprehensive-combat operating system by means of her exclusive equipment, "Rengoku". To begin with, rather than an armament, he is closer to an auxiliary system meant for support.
    That being said, although he makes pretty helpful comments, their effectiveness cannot be fully demonstrated due to the owner herself failing to hear them.

    Sun and Moon: A
    A Craft Essence that converges all light and releases a dark radiance, which only Genie Saber can use. Taking the shape of a sun shield and a moon armor, they display a completely different level of defensive power.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Zekken・Mukyuu Issen
    (3)

    Type: Anti-World

    A light that surpasses the sun and the moon, shining over countless nations(4) and enlightening the blue threshold.
    The light that surpasses the sun and the moon pierces the void, cutting open the space of the unlimited sky as a single brandish of a transcendental magic sword. A Noble Phantasm that also possesses an aspect as a concept that bisects all things, turning them back to the infinite.

    It is difficult to release this when her Saint Graph is in an unstable condition and, in such cases (like her 1st and 2nd Ascension), she can only maintain it for a very short while.

    That being the case, during the 1st and 2nd Ascension in which Rengoku is in his independent action condition, this finishes with the two of them amicably holding hands. That is so cute!

    "...no. I'm telling you to forget about that."

    Incidentally, Rengoku's original personality (although it is questionable whether one can truly call it a personality) is derived from the male blade, and the short sword that he holds when in Rengoku-chan form is an expression of that. As such, his original support voice sounds gallant, cool and handsome - something normally associated with a man...

    "...or so it should have been, but how come it turns into an unbelievably cute voice whenever I turn into Rengoku-chan!?"

    "...Hehe. You're really cute, Rengoku."



    (1) again, I'm going with this translation for 'majin' (魔神) due to the correlation with "genius"

    (2) those last sentences are written in such a way that it makes difficult to tell which one of the two is actually speaking.

    (3) roughly, "Definite Sword, Single Brandish of the Unlimited Sky"

    (4) the Japanese word used here (塵刹, jinsetsu) is sometimes used in Buddhism to refer to the entire material plane


    Anastasia (Swimsuit)
    Anastasia & Viy

    The princess of ice that underwent a Class Change to a swimsuit Saint Graph.
    "Summer? I a Russian, you know. I won't be fazed just because it is a little hot."
    Due to becoming worn out if she lets her guard down, she keeps shaved ice always at hand.
    Still, eating too much of it will cause her head to hurt.
    Viy has also changed into a lovely figure to match Anastasia, but that doesn't change the fact that its eyes are scary.

    Since this is summer, swimsuit that we're talking here, her aspect as a mischievous girl has been completely highlighted.
    However, this causes her to nonchalantly attempt reckless things that she wouldn't do normally - so attention is necessary.
    She might even charge on foot into lava, all while laughing.
    Rather than acting independently, it seems like she has more fun walking around with her friends・comrades・her Master.

    In regards to the Master, it seems like she became affectionate like a cat, whimsically makes fun of him like a cat, treats him roughly like a cat would and wants to be spoiled like a cat.

    Just like how the summer turned an indoor-type shut-in into an outdoor-type survival gamer, it also ended up changing Anastasia into a snickering, prank-loving outdoor-type girl.
    The Master is probably the only one capable of stopping her as she goes into a rampage.

    If Caster Anastasia highlighted her aspects as an imperial princess, this version of her emphasises her free and easygoing attributes.

    Due to that, her personal space is small (to begin with, she is the kind whose sense of distance grows terribly close once you deepen your emotional bonds with her) and she has a side that likes to tease and enjoys seeing others become flustered about herself.

    However, maybe as a result of her aspects as an imperial princess being suppressed, it seems that her feelings of loneliness for not having her siblings around also ended up being strengthened.
    If one wants to become intimate with her as a Master, he will have to put and effort to distract her from said loneliness.

    Even if she were to wear a swimsuit "I am an imperial princess, you see? I believe I can just stay graceful as always." - or so she said to her friends in Chaldea.
    (It goes without saying that said friends began laughing at her immediately after, leading to a fight)

    However, what stood in her way was something pure, which paid no mind to gracefulness. Not a beautiful carnivorous animal, but the airhead bombshell girl - the absentminded French girl (that part is self-proclaimed) - Charlotte Corday (swimsuit).

    "Isn't she stealing my limelight(2)? Hey, don't you think so?
    Not to mention, she is a Caster now!
    "

    And thus, this fated pair firmly came to grapples with each other, becoming good friends.
    Anastasia: "How about, I get the right side and you the left side?"
    Charlotte: "That sounds good!"

    "That is not good at all!"
    "Unacceptable!"
    The Chaldea police would eventually chase after the two of them while saying that, but that was still far away in the future for the pair at the time.

    So long she has Viy, she can go off on her own to relatively anywhere.

    Fairy Contract: B+
    Contracts for when wearing a swimsuit are treated as a separate matter.

    Shvibzik (Summer): B+
    A variant of Shvibzik, to be used in summer.
    It is possible to manufacture, manipulate, materialize everything that Anastasia perceives as part of summer.
    Although powerful, "things that are part of summer" usually don't include objects that would be useful when attacking.
    "I might be able to make a beach hut's iron plate for cooking fried noodles though."

    Freezing Summer Time: A
    "...this is so much fun.
    I might end up wishing for time to freeze."

    A compulsory halt by means of Viy's Mystic Eyes.
    By placing this over herself instead of others, it stops all sorts of attacks from reaching her for a certain amount of time.

    Acceleration・Spirit Eyeball: B

    Something that converted Viy's Mystic Eyes into something constantly invoked.
    It causes the surrounding magical energy to swirl, and continues to provide Anastasia with an advantageous environment.
    In terms of a First Person Shooting game, it would be like forever staying in a condition where you can unilaterally snipe the opponent from a high position.

    Fundamentally not employed in "FGO". Probably.



    (1) the Japanese term used here (重たい, omotai) can also be translated as gloomy, depressing

    (2) not exactly correct, but there is no direct translation for キャラが被る (kyara ga Kaburu; roughly - overlap in character/individuality) in English. So I'm going with this, as it is the closest equivalent I could think of.


    Charlotte (Swimsuit)
    Charlotte Corday

    A Servant that underwent a surprising Class Change into a swimsuit... or rather, an illusionist Saint Graph.
    Although her Class is tentatively a Caster, there is nothing Caster-like about her.
    She produces a pigeon with illusionism. Even if said pigeon is just an inorganic ether body, at a glance it seems just like a pigeon.
    The fact she is clumsy outside of combat has not changed.
    She practices daily so she might one day elegantly perform illusionism before an audience and the Master.

    She changed jobs from an Assassin to a Caster, but there is no particular differences between this and her Assassin self.
    Although somewhat panic-stricken by the great exposure of her attire, she got encouraged by the words of several people that "there is no problem at all".
    She herself does not know why she became an illusionist, but she felt somewhat triumphant over receiving applauses after having pulled out a pigeon from her silk hat, even believing that the job suits her somewhat.
    (Still, that would later lead her to become depressed over not being able to handle cards skilfully)

    Despite being embarrassed about the flashiness of her swimsuit, she is pressing hard on the protagonist... just because she feels that this summer surely is the decisive season.

    While there has been no dramatic changes in her personality, she became more assertive than before due to no longer being afraid of getting broken - causing a portion of the other Servants to grow extremely vigilant towards her.

    By the way, she was taught the necessary skills for magic tricks by a shady, dandy bartender and a mysterious centaur sage.

    She might not have any talent for it, but by compensating it through earnest efforts, she is able to maintain a pretence of being an illusionist.

    That was truly a fated encounter.
    On one side was the imperial princess of a vast country. On the other, a commonplace girl that merely lived in a French monastery.
    These two - who would have never crossed paths in proper history - ended up meeting each other.

    And that meeting led to an alliance between kindred spirits being formed...!

    Although both went through a lot during their time in the original Saint Graph, it should be fine to become single-minded now that they changed into their swimsuits (illusionist) Saint Graph, right?

    Having yielded to the temptations of an imp, the young girl no longer feared anything.

    She wear glasses in a portion of her Ascension due being advised by Osakabe-hime that they would raise her intelligence.

    Magic Show Field: EX
    A variation of Territory Creation.
    It constructs an appropriate environment for the performance of magic tricks.
    This covers for her poor skills.
    Thanks to the mysterious angel (provisional name), mistakes in her tricks can be mostly glossed over.

    Magic Goods Create: C+
    A variation of Items Construction.
    The higher the rank, more feasible it is to instantly produce the goods necessary for magic tricks.

    Since Corday is but an apprentice illusionist, she can only handle simple magic tools.

    Illusionist (Fake): C+
    A bewitching skill that does not rely on magecraft. A genuine technical ability.
    There are also some rare owners of great finesse that are able to acquire its (True) variant.
    It cause others to see (or maybe experience) things that cannot be seen, that should not exist.
    Since Corday is a posteriori magician, her competency is clearly inferior to other magician Heroic Spirits.

    Haphazard Show Planning: A
    While she tends opens a show based on a momentary mood and impetus, for some reason the surroundings get extremely excited.
    Apparently a few mistakes are forgiven, and the audience ultimately gets satisfied.

    Angel of Legerdemain: EX
    The mysterious angel (provisional name) backs up her magic tricks.
    Once you contemplate everything carefully, it turns out that this angel is the most mysterious thing of all...
    Everyone (including Corday) thinks so.
    It erases the wariness of the audience, expands their tolerance levels towards amusements and enlivens the surrounding mood, but...
    Frightening enough, this does not change even during combat.

    Rank:

    Type: Anti-Unit

    A Noble Phantasm that simultaneously performs an attack and bewitchment by means of a magic show.
    Given her competency, this would normally has (at best) about D Rank of destructive power and E Rank of bewitching effects, but it has the potential to become an awe-inspiring attack by means of the synergy with her skills and the mysterious angel (provisional name).


    Little Da Vinci (Swimsuit)
    Leonardo Da Vinci

    There is premonition of adventure in this year's summer...!
    Little Da Vinci acquired a swimsuit Saint Graph in such a manner.
    Having throughly checked the records from various events up until this point, she fully intends to enjoy herself.

    While this is a swimsuit Saint Graph, there is no difference from the original Little Da Vinci.
    Her Class has also changed from Rider to Ruler, but it seems her personality has not been affected at all.
    Still, maybe due to being in a Singularity, she is more full of curiosity than usual - constantly restless and wanting to run around.
    The fact that she is in a position to experience together an event, when could only remain as a spectator up until now, is probably the reason behind this.

    "Let me hear your travel stories".
    Just when she was about to say that, Little Da Vinci remembered that she was tagging along this time around and let out an embarrassed grin.

    To examine the records of Micro Singularities is one of the few amusements that Little Da Vinci has.
    What exactly happened? Why did such a preposterous Singularity came to be?
    Despite knowing she shouldn't, she can't help but laugh while thinking about how the Servants involved in it must have felt, or about the grumbling figures of her predecessors seen in the records.

    She believed all those things were far beyond her, even though she yearned for them. Thus, the existence of this Singularity is nothing short of a miracle for Da Vinci - and she intends to tackle its settlement with all her might, enjoy it with all her might.

    Leonardo Da Vinci and Christopher Columbus.

    They both lived in the same era, but there are no official records of them ever interacting.

    Probably, the person Da Vinci told his dreams to was a child with a different name, and the person whose dreams Columbus scolded was yet another child.
    Those two walked in different directions, aiming towards their own respective dreams.

    A promise from a certain evening.
    It is impossible to tell if it truly happened or not.
    The tale of a dream from two children.

    Naturally, it has no relation with her current self though.

    Her True Name is Gran Cavallo (derived from the unfinished "Gran Cavallo (giant horse)" sculpture made by Da Vinci).

    Dreaming Machine: A
    A support-type dinosaur automata, which Da Vinci developed without sparing any time for sleep.
    Although simple, they are endowed with their own intellect and autonomous function. Each of them move like a proper dinosaur.

    They are:
    Triceratops: Fianma (Italian for 'fire')
    Futabasaurus Suzukii: Mare (Italian for 'sea')
    Urvogel: Vento (Italian for 'wind')

    Treasure Checker: B
    Since this is her first treasure hunt, she obtained this treasure tracking skill. Originally, it works by detecting gold, silver and similar minerals, but it also plays a role similar to an active sonar during combat.

    Shining in the Twilight: EX
    All adventures come to an end.
    If the Singularity disappears, its adventure will also be treated as nonexistent.
    Still, something brilliant can be found in any sort of Twilight.
    This has an effect falsely similar to A Dream to the Stars.

    Converting the dinosaur automata into bullets, loading them into her favourite magic gun and firing.

    Mysteries are more powerful the older they are. Unfortunately, since Da Vinci-chan's dinosaur automata belong to the newest category, their power as mysteries is lacking.
    Da Vinci-chan is compensating for this with her creative originality.


    Kama (swimsuit)
    Kama

    "Kama? She has been adorable as of late, don't you think?"
    In order to get revenge at lukewarm views such as this from Parvati and the others, the God of Love has awakened to this figure as the Demon Lord Mara (or so she says).

    Summer makes you think of various sorts of temptations. In other words, summer is the season of depravity.
    What sort of Demon Lord would fail to make a display of her sense of presence in a time like this.
    Having turned serious, she wraps herself in a lovely swimsuit and attempts to lead the Master into depravity more assertively than usual, but...

    "What do you thing? This is the true form of Mara, the demon lord of summer. Aren't you scared of unintentionally falling to depravity~?"

    Everyone exchanged glances and agreed that the manner how, no matter how you look at it, she is no different from the usual Kama is indeed frightening.

    Kama pondered.
    'Maybe I've been taken too lightly recently?'
    'Do they think I am some sort of child, who probably would stay obedient so long they keep giving cakes and the likes?'
    'While I still don't feel like getting serious and doing my job of showing what love is all about, being held in contempt sorts of makes me mad.'
    "Even that Parvati, who used to be so cautious, is now looking at me as if saying 'keep your pranks moderate'. It is not really harassment if they don't get seriously scared and put on guard, right...?"
    As such, she made a decision.
    'For once, let me firmly show them my presence not as a god of love, but as a demon lord of depravity!'

    At this point, the ideal opportunity that is summer appeared.
    "This is a good opportunity, so I shall make the Master fall into depravity with all my might~. There is no way he won't be corrupted after getting all lovey-dovey (laughs) with me in a swimsuit.
    And then... I will seriously get revenge at Parvati and the others for the humiliation of not taking things seriously and looking at me with lukewarm eyes that say "
    you mellowed, huh?"
    It is too late to get flustered after doing something that cannot be undone~!
    "

    The person herself claims to be in "a condition in which the aspect of Mara is more pronounced".
    As such, her attitude towards the Master is more assertive, more bold, more devilishly (impishly).
    ...still, how is that any different from usual?
    Not much actually.
    As befitting the summer, Kama is merely more proactive in regards to seducing the Master.

    Not only that, but since she is unreasonably specialized in attacks, her defenses became extremely weak.
    In other words, she is easy.
    Despite proposing that they drink a juice with a double straw, her face gets all red and she ends up becoming flustered when actually trying to do it.
    Therefore, Parvati does not regard her as particularly dangerous.
    For she understand that it is impossible for Kama to arbitrarily cause the Master to fall to depravity, and will just end up blowing herself up.

    Still, even in a Summer Saint Graph, the fact she is essentially a Servant that is both Kama and Mara in itself has not changed. In regards to that Kama/Mara ratio, supposedly her usual self is 6:4, while her Beast self is 4:6.
    And surprisingly enough, her current self is...!
    "She herself believes it to be 3:7, but it actually hasn't changed at all from before, you know?" (Parvati's testimony)

    The height/weight inscribed here is that of her basic condition.
    Due to the summer, the degree of freedom is greater than usual.

    Makara Floating: A
    A skill most suitable for playing in water during summer.
    Supposedly, Kama has a connection to the Makara, a sea beast from Hindu mythology.
    This Makara is also the mount (Vahana) of the Sea God Varuna and Ganga (the goddess of the Ganges) - in other words, it possesses the power to manipulate water.
    Supposedly, the mysterious float resembling a shark or alligator that her summer self rides not only produces a comfortable buoyancy, but can also surmount any raging waves and, at times, display greater mobility than a water scooter.

    Mara of the Midsummer Sea: EX
    A skill that denotes the summer earnestness of the demon lord.
    Can also be described as the summer version of the Mara Papiyas skill.
    It reduces her usual downer aspect that lacks motivation, making her behaviour slightly more active.
    Even things that she would usually reject with scornful eyes while saying "that's bothersome, so no" may come to be accepted under the excuse of "well, it is summer after all". Maybe.

    Hollow Demon: EX
    As a result of obtaining the Saint Graph of an Avenger, Kama's way of being as having a connection to the cosmos due being burnt by Shiva was further linked to the rare magic attribute possessed by the young girl that became the vessel.
    Therefore, her summer self perform attacks by means of a unique manipulation of magical energy.
    The flames of depravity will not disappear by any means but, due to the effects of this skill, they approach a condition of "existing while being nonexistent".
    This is the reason why, in her Third Ascension, the flames that burn her body "appear to have decreased somehow".

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Rank:
    B
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 2~10
    Maximum Targets: 10 people
    Something that changed the flower arrows (Sammohana) possessed by Kama into a more summer-like shape.
    A cute swim ring that suits a beautiful girl the most. It is no exaggeration to call it a weapon that causes those who see it to fall in love.
    Once this Noble Phantasm hits, her depravity powers take the shape of a shadow giant and overflow.
    She herself does not know why it turns out like this.
    Rupastra is one of Kama's pseudonyms, and it means "that which makes beauty a weapon".

    Mara Sunyata - To Fall By Means of Romance is the Result of Love
    Rank:
    B
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 2~10
    Maximum Targets: 100 people
    An invitation to depravity performed while in a condition in which her aspect as Mara has surfaced.
    A dark universe reached a the ends of love.
    Although it has not changed in terms of meaning from her usual self, it appears as something deeper, emptier due to the special trait of the current Saint Graph.
    Those who fell in here can no longer escape.
    One can also describe this space as a flame converted into a cavity.
    Instead of a love flame that gaudily burns people to nothing, this is an empty flame that gently melts them away without making a sound.


    Caenis (swimsuit)
    Kainis

    Kainis, whose Saint Graph became that of a Rider due to changing into a swimsuit.
    Her position is that of a provisional security personnel hired by Goldolf.

    While fulfilling her duties as the summer Chaldea's provisional security personnel, she intends to enjoy herself in her own way during her spare time.
    Were she a Lancer, Kainis would never approach the beach all by herself. But with this Saint Graph, it is not impossible for her to pick up a surfboard and jump into the sea while saying "I'll be right back".

    Kainis' Saint Graph was transformed when she changed into a swimsuit.
    There has been no fundamental change to her personality, but...
    If pressed to say, as a result of being hired by Goldolf as the summer Chaldea's provisional security personnel, it seems that she became relatively more approachable than usual.

    As a matter of fact, she rarely picks up any fights (that is to say, it is not like she doesn't do it at all).

    "A provisional security personnel hired by Chaldea for this year's summer, or something like that..."

    In this Saint Graph, Kainis is very counscious about it.
    This is probably because Goredolf personally commissioned her.
    As such, she is harboring a chaperone's point of view towards both the Master and the other swimsuit Heroic Spirits, but...
    That is something hard to notice at a glance, so she seems just like same old Kainis.

    As usual, her dislike for the sea haven't changed.

    Riding: EX
    Kainis mount is a sea dragon... a legendary sea serpent, which is a subspecies of the dragon kind.
    Even if just a subspecies, the fact that she can freely maneuver a dragon kind makes her rank in the Riding skill extraordinary.

    Beach Crisis (Poseidon): EX
    A skill falsely similar to other summer Saint Graph's skills, such as Beach Flower and Beach Crisis.
    Those charmed by the figure of this beautifully perfected maiden are all bathed in the hex of the Sea God.
    While saying something like "Even though the degree of exposure(1) is not all that different from usual, why does she have this skill?", Fergus was cursed.

    Sea King-Style: B
    Original combat techniques that were jointly developed by her and Yagyuu Tajima-no-Kami.
    It specializes in combat in the beach.
    According to Kainis "this is just a recreation, a pastime".
    Not something produced as a form of self-cultivation, much less something to be left for the later generations.
    A mischevious prank that she merely attempted with an attitude of "let¥s try this out a bit" or "alright, let's do it". A single summer's dream.

    Summer-time Combat: B+
    The guidelines of the summer Chaldea's provisional security personnel taken shape in the form of a skill.
    It augments combat abilities. Particularly, additional bonuses are added when fighting on the beach.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Rank:
    B+
    Type: Anti-Unit

    A full-powered throw performed while riding fast on her mount, the sea dragon.
    The harpoon that she fires directly hits and destroys the target while clad in magical energy in the shape of a sea dragon.
    Supposedly, the attack power is strengthened when the realease of True Name is performed in the beach.

    In addition, the harpoon employed here is her Noble Phantasm as a Lancer - the "Trident of the Sea God" - in a different shape.
    It is possible to catch a glimpse of it in the outward appearance of her Third Ascension.

    Sei Shounagon (swimsuit)
    Sei Shounagon

    A night to the summer. More so the season of the moon...(1)
    However, there is still a pile of fun things about summer!
    Swimsuits and shaved ice to the sea. And also a little bit of desire for adventure.
    Here we have yet another Heian woman who succumbed to such summer temptations.

    "Say, Masty~... How about we do something bad together?"

    And thus, this Berserker Sei Shounagon ended up being born.

    Whether you spend it diligently or play with fire a little, this year's summer is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
    "So let's enjoy it to our hearts content!"

    A summer-limited Berserker Class that transfigured her original Saint Graph after the feelings of anticipation and severe training in preparation to the approaching summer got mixed up with all kinds of different factors.
    Maybe due to effect of Mad Enhancement, the manners as a literary person that she displayed from time to time when in the Archer Class became even more subdued, and she got about three times more noisy.

    For some reason, the person herself seems to have a misunderstanding of "Berserker = outlaws" and she will suddenly pick up a quarrel with the surrounding people while putting on airs, but this situation shouldn't last for long.
    She will probably find it too tiresome while in the middle of speaking.

    In addition, it seems like her entrance into the Chaldea delinquent team has been rejected.

    Running through the city in a skate board, her forte is an anything goes, brutal fighting style that makes use of blows by means of a hammer and sprays, ramming attacks, beams and etc.
    "It's fine, for I am a Berserker."

    By the way, her color sprays employ special paints that disappear as time passes, so no matter what sort of travesty or famous literature she produces with them, nothing will remain after.
    A Berserker who is scrupulous in weird places.
    Occasionally, one can witness her and the children being chased by EMIYA after scribbling on the walls.

    There are rumours of all these weapons employing the technology of a different universe, or something...

    A woman writer from the Heian era that changed into a swimsuit and bursted onto the scene as a result of getting fully on board with the summer temptations - that is the Berserker Sei Shounagon.
    This is impressive, in many different ways.

    A sense of liberation that she was never able to experience in her previous life and the curiosity aroused by the topic at hand: "a summer adventure".
    Becoming highly merry, frolic and bustling about together with her companions...
    Such state of hers make it seem like she returned to being a young girl not only in body, but also in mind.

    Or maybe---
    She simply has not changed at all from her brilliant times in the Teishi Salon - in which she broke a chair due to getting too much excited and routed an oxcart that was overflowing with flower ornaments.

    Probably, that person is laughing somewhere while seeing that sparkling summer figure of hers and picturing those nostalgic days.
    "How adorable".

    Your explaination is very illogical.
    Actually, Tokiomi's decision is illogical from the beginning, no matter if you check it under the safety of Sakura or the goal of Magus.

    Which is odd, cause you'd really think after like 200 years of kicking the crap outta one another, the Tohsaka would know that...
    No matter if Tokiomi know or not, he doesnt care. Gen confirmed it.
    So, we can't hope that Tokiomi will suddenly save Sakura just because Kariya tells him about the worm pit.

    being a child of a family, and not the heir, leaves you in a pretty crappy position and it's not like this is hearsay either
    If you don't become the heir, you maybe raised as the average human.
    - Aoko living like that for many years.
    - Touko doesnt allowed to become the heir. She went to Britain, study at the Association's school by herself, still good.
    - in FSF, at least two of Reeve's police has their brother/sister live as the average human. One only know that his father and brother is Magus until U.S government tells him and begin to teach him with magecraft. Another one has her sister as the doctor, still never know that her family is Magus.

    we've seen it, with Sola-Ui from Fate/Zero, being married off as if she had no other worth.
    Sola-Ui isn't what usually happening to these children.
    Aoko's grandfather simply doesn't care about Aoko and even Touko, he leaves them to live as their will.

    And don't forget the contract between Magus. If Tokiomi fears that Rin will bully Sakura in the future, he can force both of them to set contract to each other.

    the Aozaki siblings are the picture of dysfunction, seemingly stemming back from their contest to be named their family's heir.
    Aozaki's conflict is nothing to do with the Magic Crest or the heir. Both Aoko and Touko doesnt care about it.
    They actually conflict to each other because of their ego.
    Aoko doesn't want to become Magus, but she thinks that is the coward if she deny the heir.
    Touko doesn't really care about Magic Crest or the heir, she actually just want to check how the Root looks like.
    It is stupid, but it is their way.

    Finally, Shirou. I'm still not entirely sure why he sees Sakura hang around and cook for him, but doesn't get the idea that she likes him. I mean there's dense, then there's made of swords dense apparently, Unlimited Dumb Works is what I'm getting at here.
    We call it " Unlimited Plot Hole". Nasu simple force his characters work follow that way to sure that setting be formed.

    Shirou knows Shinji beats and bullied Sakura from one year ago. And he doesn't do anything exclude have a fighting with Shinji, then let the abuse to continue.
    Taiga knows about the abuse,too. And she simply keep silent as nothing happening. Remember, she is teacher.

    It isn't what people will do in the reality at all. That is why we call it " plot hole".

    Nasu did it many time before.
    - Why Asagami still continue to flee from the school, to got raped by these gangs more many time?
    - Why Hisui never notice what happening to Kohaku for many years?
