    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Orion
    Horkos - There is No Beast My Arrow Cannot Reach
    Rank:
    B+
    Type: Anti-Army
    Range: 100
    Maximum Targets: ?
    If the opponent is a demonic being or magical beast, this attack will ignore all sorts of defensive skills and Noble Phantasms.

    If employed when he is summoned as a Grand Archer, it will gain the additional effect of degrading all beasts into beings within his reach.
    It can also deal with the type of enemies that multiplies infinitely by continuing to automatically kill them so long they remain within range.
    In "FGO", it was employed only in the Adventure Part.

    A unique Noble Phantasm that shouldn't possibly exist, originally. In the fifth Lostbelt, he went as far as discarding his position as a Grand Archer in order to obtain this Noble Phantasm that exist solely for the sake of Artemis.
    In exchange of his own life, it shots down the machine goddess Artemis.
    A bow forged by processing Achilleus' armor. Paris turning himself into an arrow. The Command Spell (boost) from the Master. All these came together to become a projectile that could be shot only once.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Reve de Durandal - Peerless Fleeting Sword
    Rank:
    A+
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 1
    Maximum Targets: 1 person
    An anti-unit Noble Phantasm that can only be invoked upon sealing away and discarding Serment de Durandal.
    Obtaining the peerless sword Durandal that he once held.
    In addition, it also demonstrates an exceptional improvement in his defenses thanks to the Armor of the Nine Worthy (which is usually nothing but a skill) being sublimated as one of Hektor's relics while in this condition.

    In a regular Holy Grail War, this Noble Phantasm cannot be invoked unless he has enough confidence to think that "in my current state, I would be able to truly handle Durandal". Even the very information regarding the Noble Phantasm is being sealed, so not even his Master can be made aware of it.

    In the fifth Lostbelt, this Noble Phantasm could be invoked thanks him being bestowed with Durindana (Durandal) by Hektor and having obtaining a purpose in "saving the friend he made in this trip". He then vanished after accomplishing the miracle of keeping Artemis's arrow at bay.


    Europa (after change)
    Despite manifesting in the fifth Lostbelt as a Servant of the anthropic principle, she was unable to oppose the King of the Lostbelt (the Chief God Zeus) and had to rule over the people of the interstellar urban mountain range Olympus as a priestess that speaks in the name of Zeus.
    However...
    As a matter of fact, she was lending her strength to the Deicide Alliance despite understanding the risks to herself.

    Upon manifesting in Chaldea, it seems that she has no recollection about what happened in that Lostbelt, but...

    Should she learn about the events of the fifth Lostbelt, she will undoubtedly close her lips and shake her body in tears.
    All for the sake of the many lives lost...
    And the heartfelt wishes of the pair who snuggled up to her.


    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.

    Poetry of the Virtuoso: B(1)
    Despite being counted among the Chuuko Sanjuurokkasen, Nyoubou Sanjuurokkasen and having one of her poems included in the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, Sei Shounagon laughs at herself for being poor at waka.
    Despite being in part an issue of not feeling up to the task, one could also say that its old-fashioned rules are a poor match with her novel sensitivities.
    Nevertheless, the poems that she composes will sometimes touch people's hearts and boldly make insolent men move aside.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Emotional Engine, Full Drive - Makura no Soushi・Shunshoshou
    (4)
    Rank:
    D++
    Type: Poetry Noble Phantasm
    Range: 1~20
    Maximum Targets: 50 people
    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".




    (1) the original Japanese uses the term 歌仙 (kasen), which was sort of a title bestowed to exceptional poets in ancient Japan. There is no direct equivalent for it in English, and "virtuoso" is the closest approximation I could think of.

    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.

    He is popular. He is simply too popular.

    Favor of the Gods: B+
    A skill that denotes the favor of the Olympian gods.
    Its brings about many effects.
    Above all, the love from Goddess Athena is strong. Thanks to this, it is exceptionally possible for Odysseus to employ the Noble Phantasm Aigis, which is a defensive armament of the gods.
    In this work, it is fundamentally not employed as a skill.

    Single-Mindedness (Love): A
    The absoluteness of the mind. The source of his indomitable will.
    The heart that he dedicated to his beloved wife Penelope will not waver no matter what.
    Odysseus was coveted by many women... the nymph Kalypso; the witch from Aiaia Isle, Circe; the whimsical princess Nausikaa. Even the divine protection from the Goddess Athena is, in a sense, a result of him being "popular".
    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.
    (At the very least, this is how he perceives)

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Aigis - Divine Body Bounded-Field
    Rank:
    A
    Type: Bounded Field
    Range: -
    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.

    The Dioskouroi are never apart, always snuggling up to one another. Putting in another way, they cannot be separated. They are "a single Heroic Spirit made out of two people".

    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.

    Star of the Chief God: A
    A skill that denotes the way of being of the twin gods, who became a constellation as an existence of two individuals fused into one.

    Guardian of Voyages: B
    Bringing about protections to those who travel in ships.
    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.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Dioscures Tyndaridae - Twin Gods Eugoly
    Rank:
    B
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 0~3
    Maximum Targets: 1 person
    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!"

    Kainis, the hero of tyranny, possesses an peculiar form of Mad Enhancement in this manifestation.
    She usually is endowed with reason, but if her accumulated rage has exceeded a certain point, she turns into a gale of spear to whom all sorts of mutual understanding becomes impossible.
    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.

    Having been conceptualized as a supreme being, things like traits as a living creature or profession in the world no longer apply to Romulus.

    Divine Core of the Chief God: B+
    As a child of the War God Mars who became Quirinus (a supreme deity of the Roman mythological cosmology) after death, Romulus is exceptionally endowed with a divine core in this Saint Graph.
    Originally its rank would be out-of-scale, but it has been confined to B+ Rank at his summoning by Chaldea.

    Independent Action: B+
    Originally, there is nothing in this world who could bind a chief god and supreme deity... but, Romulus Quirinus has intentionally reduced its rank himself.

    Throne of Quirinus: EX
    The way of being as the supreme deity of a mythological cosmology and a god who ruled over the Mediterranean world.
    A skill transformed from Imperial Privilege, it should originally denote several Authorities, but it is fundamentally not employed as an Authority in this work.

    Divinity Transformation: B
    His Natural Body skill was altered along with the Saint Graph.
    Although born as a man, Romulus attained godhood.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Nine Lives・Rome - Shooting Down a Hundred Heads・Rome-Style
    Rank:
    A
    Type: Special Technique
    Range: -
    Maximum Targets: Self
    The combat methodology devised by the great hero of Greek Mythology, Herakles. The combat data conveyed by the War God Mars (Ares) who watched over all of his fierce struggles--- or maybe, the folklore concerning Romulus of "treating Herakles as his father" - those were all sublimated in this new manifestation.
    The Roman sect of the Herakles school of fighting.
    The battering of fist flashes that resemble spears of light can exterminate even lifeless monsters and make the sparkles of the starry sky surge.

    A constantly active-type of Noble Phantasm.
    It is being portrayed as a skill in this work.
    It unleashes a battering of violent light upon release of True Name, but that is fundamentally not employed in this work.

    Per Aspera Ad Astra - Our Arms Open Everything, Towards the Space
    Rank:
    EX
    Type: Anti-Star
    Range: 1~90
    Maximum Targets: 800 people
    A Great Noble Phantasm that shares the same essence as the Noble Phantasm "Magna Voluisse Magnum", possessed by the homonymous Heroic Spirit.
    Something that has sublimated the concept of "development and expansion of civilization" into a Noble Phantasm.

    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.

    Both Holmes and Da Vinci conjectured about the possibility that this is an aspect (or maybe a practical application) of a downsized nation-building Authority.


    Voyager
    Voyager

    In 1977, the unmanned space problem 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.

    Voyager of the Stars: A
    A limited version of Pioneer of the Stars.
    Journeys impossible to be realized - such as the voyages between stars - become achievable.

    Swing-By: A
    A peculiar maneuver in the midst of combat.
    It steals - or maybe bestows - kinetic energy from the opponent in order to perform an acceleration/deceleration that surpasses the limits of his performance.

    Protection of the Beyond (Cosmos): B
    Originally, this is a skill incident to the holy spear.
    Derived from the fact that Voyager himself possesses the disposition of an anchor of the star that embodies the end of the world.

    A small blue light that was barely reflected in Voyager's eyes when he looked back from a distance of 6 billion kilometers.
    Within a mere 0.12 pixels, the hopes towards the future of all the people who built and sent him to an unknown world lives on.
    While receiving a warm wind in his golden sails, he heads on.


    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.

    The Master can somehow understand the meaning of her growls.

    Shapeshift (Dinosaur): C
    She changes her figure from graceful jourou (a court lady of high station) to a fearsome demoness.
    Furthermore, due desiring to receive Mad Enhancement herself, she ended up attaining the large build of a grotesque dragon.

    Kuzuryuu's Flash of Lightning: A
    The prayers and kagura that she offers to the Kuzuryuu Daishin, who is both a water deity and savage oni. It appeases and manipulates the natural fury of heavens.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    Rank:
    C
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 1~10
    Maximum Targets: 1 person
    Having been stolen, betrayed and ultimately slayed as an oni, Kouyou's lifetime's regrets are expressed as a furious attack performed while she clads herself in the fire of hatred and revenge, with no pause to breathe.
    However, this is a cruel Noble Phantasm that forces Kouyou to pay a price of great suffering by remaining at the brink of madness, without letting herself be dragged by it.

    Mirror Moon's contribution could not be understated. Type Moon's popularity in the English-speaking world was greatly bolstered by Mirror Moon's translation.
    "Baby's First Type Moon" was Mirror Moon's Fate translation a lot of the time.
    They should retire with pride knowing that they laid the foundation of the fandom.

    More than a decade ago, in its first incarnation, Beast's Lair was a forum of a fansite called The Moonlit World.
    "Ahnenerbe" was a little relic from that time. It refers to the coffee shop hangout in Nasuverse.
