Archer (アーチャー, Āchā?) is an Archer-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Identity[edit | edit source]

Archer's True Name is Ishtar (イシュタル, Ishutaru?), a Pseudo-Servant summoned into the body of Rin Tohsaka.

Ishtar is the goddess of beauty, good harvests, war, lust, discord and fertility in Mesopotamian Mythology/Sumerian Mythology/Babylonian Mythology, and one among the many mother goddesses whose power is derived from the Earth Mother.[1][2][3][4] Said to be the most pampered, or rather, the most beloved goddess by the other deities.[2] Her Sumerian divine name was said to be Inanna (イナンナ, Inan'na?), and that name is actually her older name. Ishtar is her Akkadian divine name.[1][2] It means “The Mistress of Heaven”.[1] A goddess of Venus, a goddess who governs over the good harvests that brings prosperity to the people, and even a goddess who rules over war and destruction, she is a great goddess who, among the goddesses, was presented with many rights and Authorities from the gods.[1][2] In Sumerian Mythology, she plays an active role as a dynamic goddess and as a goddess who is like the heroine of a story, possessing various anecdotes.[1] Particularly among them, a famous one is her feeding the city of Uruk to a fearsome Divine Beast called the “Bull of Heaven”, seemingly an anecdote that caused the city to be on the brink of destruction; in any case, she is a goddess who is a nuisance to others.[1][2]

At any rate, Ishtar is a whimsy deity that is free and uncontrolled, and is also famous for having numerous loves; it is said that she would make advances with all her energies on those who she took a liking to, regardless of those being humans or other deities, and she has many lovers, irrespective of them being from the domain of men or from the domain of the gods.[1][2] On the other hand, she also displayed a demon-like cruelty towards those who did not bow to her will.[2] She is a deity who was perfected as a deity, one who usually took control and command of things. There is no compromise.[1] The motive for bringing out the Divine Beast onto the Earth was said to be the result of the King of Heroes, Gilgamesh of Uruk, having not responded to her temptations.[1][2]

Legend[edit | edit source]

After Gilgamesh and Enkidu defeated Humbaba, the goddess Ishtar fell in love with Gilgamesh. She proposed to the King of Heroes, but he quickly refused because he knew that Ishtar was a whimsical and cruel witch who rendered men useless. Ishtar, enraged by Gilgamesh's insults, clung to her father, the god Anu, in tears and asked for the release of the greatest of Divine Beasts, the "Bull of Heaven", onto the Earth for her revenge. Against this Divine Beast none could match, Gilgamesh and Enkidu worked together to stand against it and repelled it splendidly. Once again, the goddess lost face. Naturally, Ishtar's rage had not lessened, and she requested death for either of the two of them from the gods because it was a sin for one with a human body to kill the beast of the gods. Ishtar's wish was granted, and one of the two, Enkidu, who was created by the gods, was unable to defy that decree, slowly weakened, and died.[3]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

This form is not that of the goddess Ishtar herself, but a Pseudo-Servant condition in which a human that has a wavelength close to her own was made into a vessel.[2]

Unlike Ereshkigal, Ishtar retains Rin's black hair.

In this form, Ishtar has red eyes, long black hair tied up into twin tails with two black ribbons. On top of her head is a black and gold tiara, along with a golden neck brace and matching "O" shaped earings. 


Ishtar's clothing is very revealing, with her top being a white bra that is outlined with gold and exposes a bit of cleavage along with her lower back and stomach. On her bottom is a jeweled black-gold thong that snuggles deeply in between her butt-cheeks and exposes a large portion of her butt and legs. She also wears a black stocking on her right leg that has golden ornaments, with her left ankle having a golden bracelet. Her left arm is outfitted with a black and gold glove that covers her forearm, while her left arm has a golden bracelet around her upper-arm.

Personality[edit | edit source]

In “Fate/Grand Order”, Ishtar has materialized as a Pseudo-Servant by possessing a human. Since Ishtar is egotistical, she behaves without paying any regard to the possessed human, but her nature is receiving a big influence from the human that was possessed. Originally, Ishtar is both deeply compassionate and cruel, but because the personality of the possessed human is more virtuous, her cruelty has retreated to the bottom of her heart, and her good side appears to have come out ahead of it.[1][2]

Active and extroverted. The goddess of war and good harvests that lives according to her own whims without being a slave to her own fixed position, all while having high intelligence and pride. Ishtar loves beautiful things, hates ugly things, and the things she desires are the things she absolutely takes hold of in her own hands. Even though she is smart, she is impulsive, and sometimes leaves with an unthinkable reckless abandon. In myths, Ishtar is commented by Gilgamesh as thus: “Inanna? Isn’t she the most annoying goddess in the world!? She will destroy something that certainly doesn’t need to be destroyed, and she will also create something that doesn’t need to be created!” If Ishtar becomes ostentatious in this world, then surely in that way, she will invite chaos simultaneously.[1]

The root of Ishtar’s personality does not have any changes even when materialized as a Servant. It cannot be helped that Rin, who is the possessed vessel, almost has the same nature as Ishtar’s as well. However, there is one thing that Rin has that Ishtar doesn’t. That is “patience”. Rin is a hardworking person who is not negligent in her trainings even though she is a genius. She knows patience, which appears to be giving a little influence on this Ishtar. Incidentally, Rin became independent after losing her father when she was very young, while Ishtar behaved like a spoiled child up to the very end towards her almighty father.[1]

Ishtar is the exact opposite of Kongming (Zhuge Liang), who is identical to her by being another Pseudo-Servant, in that the human personality, the basis of the possessed human, does not come out to the surface. Ishtar thinks and behaves as Ishtar to the very end. Although she thinks to herself “Is it because I am just being a destructive god?”, Rin’s innate goodness is mixed in with that creed as this Ishtar, and the following changes were made:

- I must be the most beautiful → (If there is someone more beautiful than me, I will strive to become more beautiful then)

- I’ll kill anyone who opposes me → (If I made someone cry because I went too far in killing someone, I would rather stop then)

- I’ll tolerate anyone who is faithful to me → (I will lend my power only in proportion to the faith you have in me)[1]

Openly like this, Ishtar’s cruelty is held back, and when assessing this as Rin Tohsaka, it at least becomes “Ah, I became just a little higher than usual.” Also, Ishtar herself is not conscious of Rin being her possessed body. “I am myself. Whatever human this possessed body was, is now the goddess Ishtar herself. Think of it in this way. Instead of saying this human was taken over by Ishtar, it is rather that suddenly on one day, she became Ishtar as well.” Although it openly sounds like she is making light of Rin’s human rights, it actually means the exact opposite. Ishtar recognizes that “if Rin Tohsaka is Ishtar, then it means Ishtar is Rin Tohsaka, regardless if it is from something like whoever is on top, to whichever one of them accepts this current state of things.” Although she will absolutely not say this.[1]

To say it in a few words, a “Tohsaka of Light (yet a devil)”.[1] Truly, a (red) devil from Venus.[2]

For Ishtar, the Master is "a human worth teasing." Although she thinks of herself as someone celebrated, she will never do things such as looking down on someone, including humans, given that the personality of the possessed body, Rin, is her base. She comes into contact with the Master with deep affections and friendship, although simply as “a toy worth teasing.” However, as their bonds deepens, the virtue of taking care of people that she has since the beginning and her emotional weakness (of completely emphasizing with someone) works against her, and they grow from “a toy worth teasing” into “my cherished contractor, whose future is worth watching over.[1][2]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Gilgamesh
"After losing all the money he has on hand through gambling, he returned back to his home to find his storehouse of treasures burning, and for the finishing blow, while he was still broke, his debt was being collected after the break period he had implored the collector for had just ended, and he died!"[1]
Enkidu
"In the middle of its journey, its vehicle’s engine stalled and even its cellphone had a flat battery, so it wandered around without any decent food too, before in the end, it finally arrived at a diner, only for zombies to infest the place, and it died!"[1]
Ereshkigal
"A Tohsaka of Darkness, huuh?..."[1]
Artemis
"I hear that person is a deity of Greece? I guess she’s a robot?"[1]

Role[edit | edit source]

Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]

Babylonia: The Absolute Frontline in the War Against the Demonic Beasts[edit | edit source]

In Chapter 7, Ishtar appeared as the only living Sumerian deity. By becoming a Pseudo-Servant, she manifested on the lands of Mesopotamia, attentively watching the Seventh Singularity and the future of humanity.[1] Although she says that her role is to attentively watch the humans in a way appropriate for a goddess, it means she is watching over them while letting out an evil sneer. “Well then. I wonder if the humans will survive this, or will they be destroyed?[1][2] By chance, she happens to see the protagonist persevering as a mere human being while losing their Servants, being a favorite among those she teases, and temporarily links a contract with them. In the end, she proves to be a literal “Goddess of Victory”.[1]

Also, it is a digression, but regarding the battle against Ishtar in one section of the Seventh Singularity’s Tenth Chapter, she had a Passive Skill called “Broken Lapis Lazuli Necklace”. Because it is broken, its original effect becomes the exact opposite (Noble Phantasm damage reduced by 30%). Ishtar herself realizes that negative effect, but daringly wears it. Even if it is for this reason: “It is still beautiful, and I wanted to flaunt it; plus, if I think about this inversely, even if it starts to act up violently and flare up, I am not going to suffer damage because I am already suffering from its debuff, right?” Or so she thinks. But she ignores pointing out that she had used her Noble Phantasm, which caused it to act up violently in the first place.[1]

Ishtar is amongst the "Babylonia" Singularity Servants to aid Chaldea against the Demon Gods Pillars.[5]

Other appearances[edit | edit source]

In Fate/EXTRA CCC, although Gilgamesh mentions that he will not use his full power for Hakuno Kishinami, he states an exception would be an Alter Ego using Ishtar as a base. He says BB has likely taken his personality into account when creating them, so it is unlikely for that to happen.

Gilgamesh in Fate/Prototype hates her greatly, describing the sentiment as "Women who are absolutely confident in their good looks are repulsive creatures!" He sees similarities between her and Manaka Sajyou.[6]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Ishtar is considered the greatest of the Sumerian goddesses. As Inanna, "The Mistress of Heaven", she once ruled the heavens in the god An's place and never lost in a battle of strength.[7] Referred to as a "spoiled goddess" that obtained all she ever desired, even all of Enki's Divinity at one point, she's said to be more impressive than Ereshkigal in terms of raw power.[8] It would normally be impossible to summon her, however, in the Babylonia Singularity she's able to manifest as a Pseudo-Servant by possessing a human extremely compatible with her.[7] As an Archer class servant, her power is logically reduced, however, based on the data Da Vinci saw, Ishtar's incredibly powerful Spirit Origin is extremely close to the real thing.[9][10] As such, Ishtar is able to fight against Mash, Ana and Gilgamesh all at the same time while holding back her Authority.[11] Should her divinity be reduced to 5/7, her power would become that of a low-rank Divine Spirit, however, her bow's destructive power wouldn't decline at all. Only her Magical Energy. At 3/7 she'd be weaker than a gallu.[8] Despite her raw power being so high, in terms of physical strength she is said to be weaker than Gorgon,[7] who had been empowered by the Holy Grail and Tiamat's Authority.[12] She has also been shown struggling against stronger opponents, such as Quetzalcoatl, claiming she could only block her charge one time,[13] or the New Eleven Offspring.[14] While called a Mesopotamian deity, her image is like that of an invader flying in from Venus to attack the Earth. Bibyu.[1][2]

Ishtar is always floating lightly because she is not the “Goddess of Earth”, but the “Goddess of Heaven”.[1] This gives her an advantage over enemies who can't fly as she'll just fly away in her boat the moment they get the upper hand on her.[10] Therefore, her main weapon of choice is the "Boat of Heaven Maanna" (天の舟マアンナ, Ten no Fune Maan'na?), which is both an airship and an enormous bow. Maana is the boat of the gods that soars across the Mesopotamian World, and it is also an interstellar teleportation stargate (gate) that connects between Earth and Venus, but because she is a Pseudo-Servant, except during the occasion of using her Noble Phantasm, its warp function is normally sealed.[1][2] Maana was regarded as the fastest object in Mesopotamia, even by Gilgamesh the first time he saw it.[8] Although her bow doesn't possess the overwhelming force of the Demonic Front, it can still be considered a nuisance.[9] Ishtar can also use a spear, but this time, she is sticking to her act as an Archer.[2]

Ishtar's major weakness is Gems. She lacks Golden Rule so despite her love for gems she has no luck when it comes to obtaining them. However, the amount it takes to completely trick her and/or persuade her is usually very high.[7]

Class Skills[edit | edit source]

Magic Resistance (A Rank): Nullifies spells of Rank A or below. Modern magi would not be able to wound her with magecraft.[1] Gilgamesh's regular attacks aren't even able to graze her.[11]
Independent Action (A Rank): The ability to remain independent for a while even when rejecting the Magical Energy supply from one’s Master. At this rank, it is possible for her to remain materialized in this world for a week even without a master.[1]
Divine Core of the Goddess (B Rank): A Skill that expresses one being a perfected goddess since birth. It has the effect of preserving the absoluteness of the mind and body. It mitigates almost all mental interferences, prevents the body from growth, and prevents the figure from change no matter how many calories are absorbed. It is a composite Skill that comprises the Divinity Skill. Since she is a Pseudo-Servant, the skill is only ranked B.[1]

Personal Skills[edit | edit source]

Shining Great Crown (A Rank): A Skill that imitates even Authorities. A Shining Great Crown that expresses one among the many Authorities of the goddess Ishtar, bringing out various effects.[1]
Mana Burst (Gem) (A+ Rank): A Skill that causes an increase of attack power, done by adding excessive Magical Energy to one’s weapon. Originally, Ishtar’s divine energy is practically almighty since she can manipulate it with complete mastery, but perhaps due to the influence coming from her possessed vessel, she became unable to accumulate magical energy on anything but jewels for some reason. It is a powerful Mana Burst (damage intensification) Skill, but because there is the necessary process of charging the jewels before shooting them, its effects will be exhibited after 1 turn from the Skill’s utilization. It is somewhat difficult to use.[1][2]
Manifestation of Beauty (EX→B): The formidable charismatic nature one has as a Goddess of Beauty. A power to captivate others. Despite being in a state where it can only work as possession, it already exceeds the domain of men. Naturally, it should be a composite Skill (gauge absorption, curse, Skill sealing) that works with a powerful seduction effect as its core, but the restriction effects towards others were removed due to the strong inclination of the human possessed by her, and it essentially became a simple Charisma Skill. This is the reason the rank has dropped so much.[1][2]

Noble Phantasms[edit | edit source]

Ishtar's main Noble Phantasm is An Gal Tā Kigal Shē, the embodiment of her anecdote of trampling down and annihilating the Sacred Mountain Ebih, which was revered and feared even by the King of Gods, simply because she was "displeased" with it.[1][2] When deploying it, Ishtar warps to Venus and takes possession of its concept by means of management rights, loading it like a bullet and firing it from Maanna’s magazine as a conceptual planet.[2] Its power is able to completely destroy Tiamat's "Femme Fatale" form, whose magical energy core contained seven times the magical energy of a Holy Grail and was able to release an amount of energy on the level of a hydrogen bomb.[15] When fighting Enkidu, she's confident about taking them down with this Noble Phantasm even after they get serious and invoke the True Name of Age of Babylon.[16]

Although Gilgamesh has no particular high hopes for her assistance against the other members of the Three Goddess Alliance, her Gugalanna Strike is an entirely different matter. She's not called the "most powerful goddess in Mesopotamia" for nothing,[7] as with this Noble Phantasm Ishtar can temporarily summon the “Bull of Heaven”,[2] viewed as the greatest and strongest Divine Beast whose power would be enough to destroy the world.[17] As the beast that none of the gods could tame, it is theorized that it'd be strong enough to hold Tiamat's "Titan" form on her tracks for a day.[18] A lethal weapon that if used could undoubtedly incinerate a city in an instant.[7] In the Babylonia Singularity she can't use this Noble Phantasm due to her other self summoning it instead.[2]

Other Capabilities[edit | edit source]

  • Ishtar's mountain is guarded by multiple demonic statutes she placed there. Each one of them has the magical energy of an A-ranked Servant.[7]
  • Ishtar is an incredible fast thinker. In what seems to be less than two minutes for Ritsuka Fujimaru, she's able to go through an entire psychological adventure for so long that the world could have been destroyed 7 times over. She refers to this ability as "Goddess Time".[7]

Forms and Alternate Versions[edit | edit source]

Swimsuit[edit | edit source]

Ishtar, Goddess of Venus, in summer garb. A summer festival is a state of popular frenzy... Truly a goddess-like goddess, she organized a grand event after being moved by the people's piety. She's also a kungfu-style goddess who moves her body nimbly and thrillingly, and burns rubber on her modernized Boat of Heaven Maanna.[19]

"Is everyone having fun!? Best time ever? Great, splendid, splendid! Keep going, reach those limits!"[19]

Truly a goddess among goddesses who graciously and generously blesses all those gathered at the venue.[19]

What is that smile really hiding?[19]

As always, a goddess whose feet don't quite touch the ground. The hoodie apparently covers a white high-leg swimsuit.[19]

Goddess Ishtar is a free sprit. Elegant, audacious, and rather cruel. Yet the present-day outfit mitigates slightly her divine nobility and terrifyingness. Merrier and more magnanimous than usual, she's friendly.[19]

Anyone who calls herself a goddess is expected to have mastered one or two martial arts... which is obviously not a thing. The reason Ishtar can move so adroitly is because the body she occupied was quite adept at both magic and martial arts. Her current fighting style is her own unique spin on the kungfu learnt by the body. "An Uruk Art! Is there such a thing?" Thus comments the king sun-bathing atop the Ziggurat.[19]

The bow used by Ishtar in her Archer form is the detached prow of the Boat of Heaven Maanna, but this time, she has transformed the "oars" of the Boat of Heaven into a scooter that she rides. The scooter has the exact appearance of a modern-day scooter, but its abilities are naturally goddess-tier. It flies high and it can warp. There's a mysterious creature fidgeting about around Ishtar's ankles, but she consistently declines to comment on it.[19]

Although Ishtar takes an interest in her Master for being a hero with a promising future, she says she's sometimes puzzled, wondering "How come such an average Joe turned out to be a hero?" She thinks of her Master as a curious human. It's because she appreciates her Master's popularity (for having the trust of other Servants) that she hires him/her as a staff member for the current Ishtar Cup, but...?[19]

Does she never learn?[19]

The Ishtar Cup, a summer festival. It was an enormous ritual for reviving the Bull of Heaven Gugalanna, a familiar of Isthar's. Ishtar lost Gugalanna when disaster struck the Mesopotamian World, meaning a complete loss of face for her. Since then, she must have been waiting vigilantly for a chance at revenge.[19]

And what happened this time is a result of that. I'll say it again. Does she never learn?[19]

Goddess Ishtar secretly borrowed a ritual utensil from the Babylonian treasury and converted it into a Holy Grail, with which she spread her Venusian texture upon the soil of Connacht. Her plan was to create Gugalanna once more by having mighty Heroic Spirits offer thanks to the land (by racing across it). Revamping the Temple of Ishtar as a gigantic magical energy resource accumulation circuit was part of this. The Ishtar QPS (Quantum Piece System) is a nightmarish money-collection device that absorbs the magical energy not only of the people, but of the Heroic Spirits as well. The more QP is accumulated, the higher Ishtar's Divinity is raised. This deed truly befits her as a wicked goddess among wicked goddesses.[19]

Development[edit | edit source]

Creation and Conception[edit | edit source]

Shidzuki Morii is the character illustrator for Ishtar.[1][2] Kinoko Nasu is the scenario writer for her character.[1]

Comment from Illustrator[edit | edit source]

"Although Ishtar’s picture was finished up to total completion on one occasion, I felt that 'Hmm… Somehow, I have a feeling that this isn’t it', so I continued overtime work on this even in spite of the picture being completed already; the appearance of my state of being is like saying 'Since that drawing is already accepted, it’s fine, it’s fine', but I went as far as continually dismissing that inside me, and then, I got to accept my drawing, saying '… if it’s this… yeah' after making my third rough sketch, so it was that drawing of Ishtar that I immediately pushed to replace with.

Since the first picture was a hard picture to draw because it fluctuated when I became tense from mental strain, I recalled wondering if it was good. If it is said that, 'as a result of Ishtar being a deity who rules over war, comparatively anything can properly be a reasonable Class for her', it then becomes a strained interpretation of an Archer as well; although, she is a goddess, so I took into consideration a weapon with a form that can work similar to a bow, and I remember wondering boldly what can be something more fascinating for an enormous Noble Phantasm she can carry in her hand. However, that weapon that can work similar to a bow turned out to be something unexpected, 'I’ll make that as Maanna, ok?', and this Maanna was added to the setting afterwards.

By the way, the coloring of Maanna references the gold and blue colors of the Ishtar Gate. And then, the earrings references a statue of Ishtar. And finally, speaking of the image of Archer regarding Rin Tohsaka… I added a loincloth to her first look. Although she has a lot of skin exposure, considering the Mesopotamian culture and the nature of the goddess Ishtar, this seems to show more skin in this way… right…? I did not think she would have screen time later on in the summer as well… yeah."[1]

    Enuma Elish (The Star of Creation That Split Heaven and Earth)
    Gilgamesh's final Noble Phantasm which reveals creation--the beginning of everything.
    The severing of space which comes from the Sword of Rupture, Ea, the sword crowned with the name of a god from Mesopotamian mythology.
    The god, Ea, is believed to be the quasi-deification of the power of the planet which turned, smashed, and stabilized the surface of the earth when it was still covered in gas and seas of magma, during the primordial stage of the earth.
    Many gods began building nations after the the primordial earth was stabilized into a world where living creatures could live, but Ea is a god who performed the act of building of planet before that.
    Gilgamesh's sword, which is crowned with Ea's name, changes space itself by agitating space-time through the rotation of three layers of giant power fields.
    It's true power is not something to be used against a single living creature but against the world. Even among the many Noble Phantasms possessed by Servants, it is one considered to be at the top, the sword "which tore apart the world."

    King of Heroes
    Another name for Gilgamesh. It does not mean a king who is a hero but is used with the implication that he is the king over heroes.
    The story of Gilgamesh, is who mankind's oldest hero, is copied within the mythologies of all the countries of the world. The origin of all myths, the model on which heroes are based...calling him such would not be an exaggeration.
    More or less, the heroes of various myths are derived from Gilgamesh's legend. As such, Gilgamesh possesses the prototypes of the Noble Phantasms that heroes carry... the original treasures from before every legend was arranged. Though it may be a paradox, unless the original, Gilgamesh, possesses it, it cannot be handed down as the Noble Phantasm possessed by the later heroes who were derived from him.
    When humanity was still small. Within the treasury of the king, who governed his kingdom and lived in as much luxury as he desired, was collected every single treasure in the world.
    Inside that treasury, there is the treasured swords that saved later heroes, and there is preserved the cursed swords that stole the lives of heroes.
    The reason that Gilgamesh is called the King of Heroes is here. Noble Phantasms are primarily one to a any single hero. Not only does he possess an approximately infinite amount of them, he also owns the "legends" that other heroes are wake against, as if it were natural. It should be impossible for an average hero to cross swords with him.
    As a Heroic Spirit, he is an absolute warrior in battles against Heroic Spirits. While there are several heroes who hold the title of king, such as the King of Knights and the King of Conquerors, but in regards to being crowned with the title "King of All Heroes," in all of heaven and earth, he is the only one.

    Friend
    As he became a young man, Gilgamesh's violent disposition only grew. Of course the people of Uruk, but even the gods who dispatched him, were greatly perplexed by his violence.
    "Gilgamesh is not fulfilling his original role." "That insolent creature needs someone to admonish him."
    Having come to that conclusion, the gods sent a single life to the surface. Its name was Enkidu. It was a person made by a god and given her blood, the same as Gilgamesh.
    It had neither a sex nor a fixed form. Enkidu, being made from clay by a god, was "Uruk's greatest weapon," able to change its shape at will. According to the god which was its mother's will, Enkidu confronted Gilgamesh before the temple of Uruk. With their exchanging of blows like a storm, their battle occurred within the city.
    After that fierce fighting, they both collapsed to the ground without consideration for where, praised each other's valor, and became peerless friends.
    Gilgamesh, who had been without equal, for the first time found someone he could call "a friend."
    After that, while his vainglorious attitude did not change, Gilgamesh, remonstrated by Enkidu, softened his tyranny.
    Gilgamesh, who had acquired someone who understood him in Enkidu, defeated the guardian of the forest and beast of the gods, Humbaba, and, as the most excellent king on the earth, took possession of every single treasure.
    At this time, the dazzlingly powerful Gilgamesh was an existence that not even the gods could avert their eyes from.
    A goddess fell in LOVE with this Gilgamesh. It was the goddess of fertility Ishtar. She proposed to Gilgamesh, but he quickly refused. Because he knew that how whimsical and cruel a witch who rendered men useless Ishtar was.
    Ishtar, enraged by Gilgamesh's insults, as her revenge, clung to her father, the god Anu, in tears and released the greatest of divine beasts, "the Bull of Heaven," onto the earth.
    "The Bull of Heaven" is a disaster of extreme magnitude clad in storms. When it appeared, a seven-year famine and destruction occurred on earth. In other words, the downfall of Uruk.
    Against this divine beast which none could match, Gilgamesh and Enkidu worked together to stand against it and repelled it splendidly. Once again, the goddess lost face. Naturally, Isthar's rage had not lessened, and she requested death for either of the two of them from the gods. Because for one with a human body to kill the beast of the gods was a sin.
    Ishtar's wish was granted, and one of the two, Enkidu, who was created by the gods, unable to defy that decree, slowly weakened and died.
    ...The sole person who understood the king, Enkidu. Just how large a shadow his loss cast over Gilgamesh is told in his lifetime afterward.
    Enkidu is an autonomous weapon created from the clay of the gods. In SE.RA.PH. terms, he is close to an AI. As a result of being complete from birth, he neither grows nor evolves. He could take various forms as needed, but it is said his usual appearance was that of a 16-year-old person who could be seen as a girl or a boy with long hair which faintly shines a light-green color.

    01 - 『天地乖離す開闢の星エヌマ・エリシュ
    開闢―――すべての始まりを示す、ギルガメッシュの最終宝具。
    メソポタミア神話における神の名を冠した剣、乖離剣エアによる空間切断。
    エア神はまだ地球が原始状態だった頃、マグマの海とガスとに覆われた地表を回し、砕き、
    安定させた星の力が擬神化したものとされる。
    多くの神は原始地球が安定し生命が住まう世界となった後で国造りを始めるが、
    エアはその以前、星造りを行った一神とされる。
    エアの名を冠したギルガメッシュの剣は、三層の巨大な力場を回転させる事で時空流を起こし、
    空間そのものを変動させる。
    その真の威力は一個の生命相手に用いるものではなく、世界を相手に用いるものだ。
    サーヴァントたちが持つ数ある宝具の中でも頂点の一つとされる、“世界を切り裂いた”剣である。

    02 - 英雄王
    ギルガメッシュの異名。
    英雄の王、という意味ではなく、英雄たちの王、という意味合いで用いられる。
    人類最古の英雄であるギルガメッシュの物語は、世界各国の神話に模倣された。
    あらゆる神話の原典、英雄たちのモデル……と言っても過言ではないだろう。
    大なり小なり、様々な神話の英雄たちはギルガメッシュ伝説から派生したものだ。
    であるなら、ギルガメッシュは英雄たちが持つ宝具の原型……各神話ごとにアレンジされる前の、
    大本の宝を所持している事になる。
    逆説ではあるが、原典であるギルガメッシュが持っていなければ、発展系であるその後の英雄たちの手に
    宝具は伝わらないからである。

    まだ人類が少なかった頃。王国を治め、贅沢を欲しいままにした王の蔵には
    世界中のありとあらゆる財宝が集められた。
    その蔵には後の英雄たちを助けた宝剣の原典があり、英雄たちの命を奪った魔剣の原典も貯蔵されている。
    ギルガメッシュが英雄王と呼ばれる由縁はここにある。
    宝具とは本来、ひとりの英雄にひとつのもの。
    それをほぼ無限に所持しているばかりか、彼は英雄たちが苦手とする“伝説”さえ当然のように所持しているのだ。
    並の英霊に太刀打ちできる筈がない。
    英霊にして、対英霊戦における絶対強者。
    騎士たちの王、征服する王、と王の称号を持つ英雄は数あれど、“全ての英雄たちの王”の名をいただくのは
    天地においてこの男だけである。

    03 - 友人
    青年になったギルガメッシュの暴力性は増すばかりだった。
    ウルクの民はもちろん、彼を遣わせた神々でさえ、ギルガメッシュの横暴さに困り果てていた。
    “ギルガメッシュは本来の役割を果たせていない”
    “あの不埒者を戒めるモノが必要だ―――”
    そう結論した神々は、ひとつの生命を地上に送りこんだ。
    名をエルキドゥ。
    ギルガメッシュと同じく、神の血を与えられた神造の人である。

    ソレには性別はなく、また定まったカタチもない。
    神に作られた粘土であるエルキドゥは自在に姿を変える“ウルク最強の兵器”だった。
    エルキドゥは母である神に従い、ウルクの神殿の前でギルガメッシュと対峙した。
    両者は嵐のように刃を交え、戦いは都市中におよんだ。
    激闘の末、両者はどちらともなく地に倒れ、相手の武勇を褒め称え、無二の友人となった。
    対等の存在がいなかったギルガメッシュにとって、はじめて“友”と呼べるものが出来たのである。

    以後、ギルガメッシュはその独尊ぶりは変わらずとも、エルキドゥに諫められ圧政を軟化させた。
    エルキドゥという理解者を得たギルガメッシュは森の番人、神の獣フンババを下し、
    地上で最も優れた王としてあらゆる財を手中に収める。
    この時、ギルガメッシュは眩しく強大で、神々でさえ目を逸らせない存在だった。
    そのギルガメッシュに、一人の女神が恋をした。
    豊穣の女神イシュタルである。
    彼女はギルガメッシュに求婚するが、ギルガメッシュはこれをあっさりと跳ね除ける。
    イシュタルがどれほど移り気で残忍で、男を駄目にする魔女かを知っていたが故だった。
    イシュタルはギルガメッシュに侮辱されたと激怒し、報復として父であるアヌ神に泣きつき、
    最強の神獣“天の牡牛”を地上に放ってしまった。
    “天の牡牛”は嵐をまとう超高層の災害である。
    これが現れた時、地上には七年間の飢饉と破壊が訪れる。
    即ち、ウルクの滅亡である。
    この、敵う者のいない神の獣にギルガメッシュとエルキドゥは協力して立ち向かい、見事撃退する。
    女神の面目は再度丸つぶれにされたのだ。
    イシュタルの怒りは当然収まらず、彼女は両名どちらかの死を神々に求めた。
    人の身で神の獣を殺した事が罪だからである。
    イシュタルの願いは聞き届けられ、両名のうち一人、神に作られたエルキドゥは
    その命に逆らう事が出来ずゆっくりと衰弱死した。
    ……王のただ一人の理解者、エルキドゥ。
    彼を失った事がギルガメッシュにどれほどの影を落としたのかは、後の彼の生涯が語っている。

    エルキドゥは神の粘土で作られた自律型兵器だ。
    SE.RA.PHで言うのならAIに近い。
    生まれた時から完成していたため、成長も進化もしない。
    必要に応じて様々な姿に変化したが、基本は緑色に淡く輝く髪を長く伸ばした、
    少女とも少年とも取れぬ十六歳ほどのヒト型だったという。

    Skills

    01 - Divinity [B (A+)]
    A judgement regarding whether or not one's body possess the property of being divine.
    Though he possesses the greatest rank of divine spirit aptitude, Gilgamesh himself hates the gods, so the rank has gone down.

    02 - Golden Rule [A]
    Not the bodily golden ratio, but one's destiny in regard to how much money follows one around in life.
    At rank A, it's possible to call it a soul of gold. With this Goldy attitude, even while living like a multimillionaire, he won't have any money troubles during his life.

    03 - Collector [EX]
    The ability to acquire items of higher quality. It's the good luck of frequently obtaining even rare items, but because it only applies to Gilgamesh himself, it does not bless the Master.
    Gilgamesh is a collector of treasure. "I collected all the treasures of the earth," is Gilgamesh's favorite phrase, but that is not a metaphor. He collected and stored away a sample of all the technology that was developed during his age and sealed them.
    That which Gilgamesh stored, rather than being treasure, is "the origin of the intelligence of mankind" itself. If it does not exist in Gilgamesh's treasury, then it is "something produced by a new breed of humanity, according a completely new concept," "something made from the technology of the culture born from the intelligent life from another heavenly body," one of the two.
    For that reason, of course he has airplanes and submarines. The desires of the people from before Christ are not different, and it would not do for the crafts of ancient times when magic was in good health to be inferior to the crafts of the modern age. People generally realize the "tools of hope" that they dream of, and each time that occurs, it ended with them being confiscated by the king's hand.
    The offensive skill Gilgamesh uses, "Gate of Babylon," shoots the treasure he collected like this like arrows. The gate to the golden capital opens, and his treasures are shot out from his treasure cellar.
    This is a digression, but after the Noble Phantasms that are shot out are used, regardless of how far it has gone, it turns to Gilgamesh's treasure cellar. "Hah. I possess a Noble Phantasm which excels at the task of retrieval," says the person himself.

    01 - 神性 [B(A+)]
    その体に神性属性があるかないかの判定。
    最大の神霊適正を持つのだが、ギルガメッシュ本人が神を嫌っているのでランクダウンしている。

    02 - 黄金律 [A]
    身体の黄金比ではなく、人生において金銭がどれほどついて回るかの宿命。
    ランクAともなれば黄金の魂と言える。
    大富豪でもやっていける金ピカぶりで、一生金銭には困らない。

    03 - コレクター [EX]
    より品質の良いアイテムを取得する才能。
    レアアイテムすら頻繁に手に入れる幸運だが、ギルガメッシュ本人にしか適用されない為、
    マスターに恩恵はない。

    ギルガメッシュは財宝のコレクターでもある。
    “地上の宝はすべて集めた”がギルガメッシュの口癖だが、それは比喩でも何でもない。
    彼は彼の時代において発生した、あらゆる技術の雛形を集め、納め、これを封印した。
    ギルガメッシュが貯蔵したものは財宝というより、“人類の知恵の原典”そのものである。
    英雄王の蔵にないものがあるとすれば、それは“新人類が生み出す、まったく新しい概念によるもの”
    “他天体の知的生命体による文明技術によるもの”のどちらかとなる。
    なので飛行機も潜水艦も当然完備。
    西暦以前であれ人の欲望は変わらず、また、魔力が健在だった頃の古代の技術は
    近代の技術に劣ってはいなかった。
    人が夢見る“希望の道具”はたいてい実現し、その都度、王の手によって接収されていた訳だ。
    ギルガメッシュが用いる攻撃スキル、『ゲートオブバビロン』はこうして集めた財宝を
    矢として射出するもの。
    黄金の都に通じる扉を開き、彼の宝物庫から財宝を撃ちだしているのである。
    余談ではあるが、撃ち出された宝具は使用後、ほどなくしてギルガメッシュの宝物庫に戻っていく。
    「フッ。回収用の優れた宝具があるのだ」
    とは本人の弁。

    Setting

    Source
    The demigod king who ruled over the Sumerian city-state of Uruk in the time before Christ. Not just a legend but also a real person, the king written of in mankind's oldest epic, "The Epic of Gilgamesh."
    Possessing great divinity as two-thirds god and one-third human, without anyone to match him in this world, he was perfected as a transcendent being who attained everything in the world.
    In his childhood, he was adored by the people as the ideal ruler, but as he grew, possible due to being treated as almighty, his consideration for the people waned, and he came to rule Uruk with absolute power.
    However, simply being oppressive does not make one a tyrant, he made Uruk prosper properly, found a friend he could speak with, and in personally subjugating the phenomena that would harm the people, that heroic quality cannot be doubted.
    He is the heroic figure who defeated the bull so large it was cloaked in the heavens and rendered the civilization of this fortified Sumerian city unshakeable.
    The following is historical fact, which differs from "The Epic of Gilgamesh." According to a fragment of an inscription found in an archaeological excavation of the historical ruins of this Sumerian city, Uruk was a city-state that existed on the shore of Persian south of Mesopotamia, and he was the fifth king of that city's first dynasty. It obtained assets through ocean trade and subjugated the region of southern Mesopotamia. He was victorious in the fight against Aga, king of the Kish who controlled the north made strong the city-states of Sumer. However, as a result the reckless deforestation of the woods due to the building of ships, their agricultural land was destroyed.
    For that reason, Gilgamesh, seeking the giant tree, the Lebanon Cedar, launched an expedition all the way to far-away Phoenicia (modern day Lebanon), fought against the people of woods, called Humbaba, gained victory against them, and brought that massive tree back with him.

    Source
    According to "The Epic of Gilgamesh," it seems that Gilgamesh, after the loss of Enkidu, fell into depression, his previous vigor gone.
    The fact that Enkidu, whose strength had not been inferior to Gilgamesh's own, could die, was the shock that Gilgamesh received.
    Gilgamesh, who was tormented over anxiety of death, finally set off on a trip to the realm of the death in search of perpetual youth and eternal life.
    It was said that there lived a sage who had lived since placing a large amount of animals upon an ark before the coming of a deluge that assailed the earth.
    This sage was said to be the only one of the earth escape from death and live until the present. Seeking him, Gilgamesh set across wilderness alone.
    At the end of that long journey and many hardships, Gilgamesh finally managed to reach the realm of the dead. There, he met the sage, Utnapishtim, spoke with him, and in the end, Gilgamesh attained the spirit herb of perpetual youth and eternal life.
    Gilgamesh came to rise above the "death" that had taken even Enkidu.
    His heart's desire fulfilled, during his triumphant return to Uruk, Gilgamesh stopped by a spring. He cleansed himself; it seems he wanted to test the fruits of his labor while in perfect condition.
    However. While he was bathing, unexpectedly, a snake with an empty stomach sniffed out the smell of the spirit herb of perpetual youth and eternal life.
    By the time he noticed, it was too late. Panicked, Gilgamesh emerged from the spring, all that remained there was the skin that snake had shed.
    Having lost the spirit herb of perpetual youth and eternal life in this way, Gilgamesh was irritated for a long interval, but afterwards, he made his way back to his own castle, Uruk.
    While the Gilgamesh after this was severe, he ruled his state quietly, entrusted to to the next king, and went to his eternal rest.
    Without telling anyone of the whereabouts of the spirit herb of perpetual youth and eternal life.
    Mankind's oldest king of heroes, Gilgamesh. Discord with the gods, the journey for the perpetual youth and eternal life, a deluge which covered the world. In that epic is the basis of every legend.
    The truth of his epic poem, which has many uncertain points concerning fine details exists on the other side of the veil of romance placed upon it by the present day.
    This is another digression, but the snake is reborn with a new body every time it sheds its skin because it stole and ate Gilgamesh's spirit herb... is what is said. It seems that the way the snake goes about its life appeared to the ancient people as a kind of perpetual youth and eternal life that was not available to humans.

    01 - 出典
    紀元前、シュメールの都市国家ウルクを治めていた半神半人の王。
    伝説だけではなく実在したとされる、人類最古の叙事詩『ギルガメシュ叙事詩』に記された王。
    三分の二が神、三分の一が人という高い神格を持ち、この世で彼に敵う存在はなく、
    この世の全てを手に入れた超越者として完成されていた。

    幼年期は理想の統治者として人々を心酔させたが、万能のおごりからか成長すると共に民を省みなくなり、
    ウルクを絶対的な力で支配した。
    しかし横暴なだけで暴君という訳でもなく、ウルクを正しく繁栄させ、語り合える友を見いだし、
    民の害となる魔物たちを自ら討伐するなど、その英雄性には疑いようがない。
    天を覆うほどの巨大な牡牛さえ倒し、シュメールの城塞都市文明を確固たる物にした傑物でもある。

                  ◆

    以下は『叙事詩』とは違い、史実のもの。
    シュメール都市の遺跡より出土した碑文の欠片によると、ウルクはメソポタミア南方ペルシア沿岸に存在した都市国家であり、
    彼はその第1王朝第5番目の王とされる。
    海洋貿易により財力を得、メソポタミア南方地域を征服。
    北方を制したキシュの王アカとの戦いに勝利し、シュメール都市国家群を堅固なものとした。
    だが船建築の材料として森林を乱伐した結果、農地を荒廃させてしまう。

    そのため、ギルガメシュは巨木のレバノン杉を求め遠くフェニキア(現在のレバノン)にまで遠征し、
     フンババと呼ばれる森の民と戦いこれに勝利を収め、大量の木を持ち帰ったとされる。

    02 - 出典
    『叙事詩』によると、エルキドゥを失った後のギルガメッシュは暗く落ちこみ、かつての勢いは無くなったとされる。
    自分に勝るとも劣らない力を持つエルキドゥですら死ぬ、という事実にギルガメッシュは衝撃を受けた。

    “死”の不安に苛まれたギルガメッシュは、ついには不老不死を求めて冥界へと旅立つ事になった。
    そこにはかつて、地上を襲った大津波を前に多くの動物たちを箱船に乗せて生き延びた老人がいるという。
    地上でただひとり死から逃れ、また、今も生き続けるという賢人。
    彼を求めて、ギルガメッシュは単身で荒野に旅立った。

    長い旅路、数多の苦難の末、ギルガメッシュはついに冥界に辿り着く。
    そこでナピュシテムという老人と出会い、語り、彼はついに不老不死の霊草を手に入れた。
    エルキドゥを奪った“死”すら、ギルガメッシュは超越する事になったのだ。

                  ◆

    念願叶い、ウルクに凱旋する途中、ギルガメッシュは泉に立ち寄った。
    身を清め、己が成果を万全の状態で試そうとしたのだろう。

    しかし。
    その水浴びをしている最中、たまたま腹を空かせていた蛇が不老不死の霊草の匂いをかぎつけた。
    気がついた時にはすべてが手遅れ。
    あわてて泉から出るギルガメッシュだが、そこには脱皮した蛇の抜け殻だけが残されていた。

     こうして不老不死の霊草を失い、ギルガメッシュは長く焦燥したあと、己が居城であるウルクへの帰路についた。
      その後のギルガメッシュは苛烈さこそあるものの穏やかに国を治め、次の王に都市を委ねて永眠した。
      不老不死の霊草の在処を、誰にも話さないままで。

                  ◆

    人類最古の英雄王、ギルガメッシュ。
    神との確執、不老不死を求める旅、世界を覆う大洪水。
    その叙事詩にはあらゆる神話の原形がある。

    こまかなところで疑問点の多い彼の叙事詩の真相は、いま以て浪漫のベールの向こう側にある。

    また余談だが、蛇が脱皮する度に新しい体に生まれ変わるのはギルガメッシュの霊草をかすめ飲んだから……とも言われている。
    古代人は蛇の在り方に、人間にはない不老不死を見たという事だろう。

    Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
    An attack on the world by BB in control of the Moon Cell.
    Also called the spirit particle imaginary pit.
    A world purge by means of event rewriting, making maximum use of the EX skill “Potnia Theron” BB had acquired.
    The goddess who is the mother of the earth goddesses who created the earth is, in other words, the “root” that created all creation.
    This Noble Phantasm is an anti-world Noble Phantasm that outputs information like an ultra-precise 3d printer and crushes the present world with the world desired by the user.
    The space eroded by BB becomes imaginary space and a curse that consumes reality. CCC as the name suggests is a cursed pit that bores out reality.
    In addition to scattering all objects inside on an atomic level and reconstructing them, it is capable of writing over and rewriting information of fields such as luck and coincidence.
    While theoretical, it is also thought possible to distort the time axis by interfering with gravity fields and rewrite the law of cause and effect.
    When used in combat, BB’s familiars, the shapeshifters engulf the target, and after turning into a sphere, is wiped out of existence along with the target and the dimension with it.
    Normally, a structure in which value can be shared cannot be constructed in the far side of the world, which is imaginary space. What established BB’s internal world as the Sakura labyrinth was the power of this Noble Phantasm.

    Advanced Level AI
    An artificial intelligence configured according to their program. In this age, they are treated as things that "function as programs," but "do not exist as actual beings." In other words, things that "are" right in front of your eyes but "are not." They are merely a mechanisms for the sake of allowing human lives to progress smoothly.
    As it is the same for the SE.RA.PH, they are virtual lifeforms that are created along with the commencement of the Holy Grail War and disposed along with its completion.
    Within the SE.RA.PH. the humanoid virtual lifeforms are: the NPCs that perform only one task, AIs who have been granted the capability for self-judgement, and the advanced level AIs who have been trusted with the capability for self-judgement ad the management of a section.
    Advanced level AIs are things created to efficiently promote the Moon Cell's primary objective of "human observation." As they are perfect reproductions of humans, they have been programmed with a at least a soul, but while the soul "is there," it is contents are still colorless.
    The virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH creates are reset with the round of the Holy Grail War. The NPCs and AIs return to zero, while advanced level AIs retain just their persona and their memories are reset--made to pretend that they never existed.
    When the Holy Grail War is over, the one who is left alive is the Master standing at the summit. This is a fact that applies not just to the Masters but is also held in common by the virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH created.
    It appears that BB is an advanced level AI entrusted with managing the health of the Masters, the same as Sakura. However, as she is now rampaging for reasons unknown, the methods she uses to "manage the Masters" have become extreme.

    Khakkhara of Direction
    The teacher's pointer that BB carries. A device that allows her to use her use her authority as an advanced level AI to its fullest. There are restrictions from the far side of the moon, but with this, BB can revise the game rules (spirit particle laws within the SE.RA.PH)
    The ten crowns of direction worn by the Beast of Babylon converted into a teacher's cane. This is due to the theory that the seven-headed beast is male, which opposes the theory that it is female; it's true nature is a phallus (an erect rod).
    The symbol of the king of the world who was granted power and authority by a great dragon and, during a period of 42 months, spat as many arrogant words as they desired and had received the right to desecrate all things.
    The beasts heads are the seven hills of the Roman Empire... Capitolium, Palatium, Aventinus, Esquilinus, Caelius, Quirinalis, Viminalis. In other words, it symbolized the Roman Empire itself, and those ten horns were symbols of... Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasianus, Titus, Galba, Otho, Vitellius... those emperors.

    Golden Grail [EX]
    The golden grail that BB possesses. The Holy Grail. The Holy Grail that grants its owner's impudent and selfish desires.
    The grail that the great enchantress who appears in The Revelation of St. John the Divine holds. Though it's a counterfeit Holy Grail, it's because that it's a counterfeit Holy Grail that it's become a "genuine" Holy Grail that grants the desires of humans without paying heed to right or wrong.
    To the Christians of those days, who considered honorable poverty a virtue, this grail, which was formed as a symbol of treasures such as gold, is no doubt the meaning of corrupt wealth, greed, and the vanity that leads one to adorn oneself.
    Though it is clear on the occasion that this grail is held by the great enchantress of Babylon which in the personification of the Roman Empire, this grail symbolizes the wealth of the earth, which is the inversion of Christ's words, "Do not pile up the wealth of the earth."
    "I saw a single woman astride a red beast. This beast, whose entire body was full of numerous blasphemous names, had seven heads and ten horns."
    This is the description of the beast of destruction that appeared in the Holy City and the woman who was straddling this beast, according to the book of Revelation. A large beast with seven heads like a hydra came from the sea and disembarked toward the Holy City. This beast and woman, while two, are as one, and it is impossible to think of them separately.
    It is said that this woman was born from evil, and those who are quick to anger, those who are greedy, cannot resist her allure and become corrupted by that grail.
    This is a digression, but it is sad that the red Saber who claims the title of emperor was, after her death, was seen by believers to be on par with this beast.

    Self-Modification [EX]
    A skill that allows one to restructure oneself. AIs created by the Moon Cell are under an absolute rule, "Improving one's functionality is not allowed."
    However, BB, who had escaped that yoke due to her breaking down, began to expand her own functions. In order to boost her calculating power, she had that black noise prey on and dismantle NPCs, AIs, and finally, Servants, and utilized them as her own memory.
    Though they were appendix-like additions that won't spare her from the fate of collapsing on her own, BB has changed into a hyper level AI who holds an enormous amount of capacity. Like the towns on reclaimed land that continue to build architecture while knowing that it will be swallowed by water or Frakenstein's monster.

    Potnia Theron [EX]
    Potnia Theron (Conception of All Animals).
    The authority of the goddesses whom BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the mooncell.
    What it is is the embodiment of the power of creation possessed by the mother goddesses, originating from a forgotten goddess approximately 8000 years ago (the goddess of Çatalhöyük), and branching to Tiamat and Cybele, Ishtar, Inanna, Athena, Astarte, Gaia, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Demeter, Athena, etc.
    Many are imaged with mural crowns. This is because many of the goddesses were also the guardian deities of cities.
                 ◆
    The symbols of this authority are the holes opening in the earth and the sky (caves and the moon), the whirlpools and typhoons of the sea, the craters of volcanos, and so on, and from these, evils bringing forth all manners of death are birthed.
    But once these evils have finished spreading death, they leave the promise of good harvest and fertility. This authority is none other than the power of bringing death as well as giving life.
    The earth mother is a guardian deity revered by the people and their protector, and at the same time she is the sacrifice that feeds them with the crops born from her body and the beasts of the fields and the forests.
    The earth mother feeds man with her blood and flesh, kills man over time and absorbs him as nutrition, and once again feeds man with her replenished blood and flesh.
    This process is the circle of the food chain, and the cycle of life and death can be said to be the true nature of the earth mother. With this authority, most of the goddesses gave birth to countless monsters and giants and posed a threat to the gods and man, or they gave birth to heroes and became protectors of man.
    Tiamat and Gaia are examples of those who became threats, and Hera is an example of a mother of heroes.
                 ◆
    Those born on this earth cannot defy the authority of the earth mother, as that would mean rebelling against the system of life itself.
    However, it is when they have left this earth to go into outer space and ended the infantile stage of intelligent lifeforms that they should no longer be bound to this authority..
    The wish of Çatalhöyük is the coming of that day.

    01 - 黄金の杯:[EX]
    BBが持つ黄金の杯。聖杯とも。
    持ち主の厚顔で自分勝手な願い事を叶える負の聖杯。

    ヨハネ黙示録にある、バビロンの大妖婦が持っていた杯。
    偽聖杯であるが、偽の聖杯であるからこそ、正邪問わずに人間の欲望を叶える“本物の”聖杯となっている。

    当時の清貧を美徳としたキリスト教徒にとって、金などという財の象徴で形作られた杯は、まさしく汚れた富と強欲、そして己を飾ろうとする虚偽を意味するものであった。

    ローマ帝国の化身であるバビロンの大妖婦が手にする杯という時点で明瞭であるが、この杯はキリストの「地に富を積んではならない」と言う言葉を反転させた、地上の富を象徴している。

                 ◆

    “わたしは、赤い獣にまたがっている一人の女を見た。
    この獣は、全身至るところ神を冒涜する数々の名で覆われており、七つの頭と十本の角があった。”

    これは黙示録曰く、聖都に現れた滅びの獣と、その獣にまたがっていた女の描写である。
    七つの頭を持つヒュドラの如き巨大な獣は海より現れ、聖都に上陸したという。
    この獣と女は二つで一つであり、切り離して考える事はできない。

    女はすべての邪悪を生み出すものとされ、短慮なる者、欲深き者は彼女の誘惑に逆らえず、その杯によって堕落したという。

    余談ではあるが、皇帝を名乗る赤いセイバーはその死後、信徒たちにこの獣と同一視され敵視されたという。

    02 - 自己改造:[EX]
    自身を改造するスキル。
    ムーンセルによって作られたAIには“機能を向上させてはならない”という絶対命令が備わっている。

    しかし、故障によりそのくびきから逃れたBBは自己機能の拡張を始めてしまった。
    計算能力を高めるためにNPC、AI、はてはサーヴァントまで黒いノイズで捕食・分解し、自らのメモリとして使用。

    自己崩壊をいとわない後付け増築だが、結果、BBは膨大な容量を持つ超級AIと化した。
    その有様は沈水しながらも建築を続ける埋め立て地の都市か、フランケンシュタインの怪物のようでもある。

    03 - 百獣母胎:[EX]
    百獣母胎ポトニア・テローン
    それはBBがムーンセルの深淵より編纂し、取り込んだ女神の権能である。

    約8000年前のすでに名の失われた女神(チャタル・ヒュユクの女神)より発し、 ティアマットやキュベレー、イシュタル、イナンナ、アナテ、アスタルテ、ガイア、ヘラ、アルテミス、アフロディーテ、デメテル、アテナなどに派生した、母なる女神の持つ万物を生み出す力の具現である。

    多くは城壁冠の形をとってイメージされる。
    これはこれらの女神の多くが、同時に都市の守護神でもあったからだ。

                 ◆

    大地や空に開いた門(洞窟や月)、海の渦潮や竜巻、火山の火口などに象徴され、そこからあらゆる死をもたらす害悪を生み出す。
    ただし、その害悪は死をまき散らした後、確かな豊穣や多産を約束するもの。
    この権能は死と同時に生を生み出す力に他ならない。

    大地母神は人々によって崇められ、それらを加護する守護神であると同時に、その身から生まれ出る穀物や作物、野や森の獣によって人々を養う犠牲そのものでもある。

    大地母神は自らの血肉によって人を養い、そして時を経ればその人を殺して自らの糧として己の血肉を回復し、またその回復した血肉で人を養う。

    この過程は食物連鎖の円環そのものでもあり、この生と死の循環こそが大地母神の本質と言っていい。
    ほとんどの女神はこの権能で、無数の怪物や巨人を生んで神々や人の脅威となり、あるいは英雄を生み、それから人々を守った。

    その代表例は、脅威となったならばティアマットやガイア、英雄の母ならばヘラである。

                 ◆

    この大地に生まれたものは、母なる神の権能には逆らえない。それは生命のシステムそのものに反逆する事だからだ。
    しかし大地を離れ、宇宙を目指し、知性体としての幼年期を終えた時こそ、この権能が打ち破れる事だろう。

    チャタル・ヒュユクの願いは、その日が訪れる事にある。

    Setting

    Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap
    Cursed Cutting Crater (Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap)
    The official name of this stage.
    The fact that BB had reached the Moon Cell core established this “place”, formerly imaginary space for storing malicious information, as real space in the present, past, and future. It was reconstructed at her hands as a “far side of the moon” where even Masters can exist.
    BB attaining the power of the primordial goddess succeeded in quantifying the “nothingness” before the birth of life. She transformed into a master of imaginary space where time and space are indefinite.
    While the Moon Cell can’t be hacked however much time is spent, BB was able to take control of it by placing herself in “unlimited time”.

    02 The remnants of peaceful days
    After the constraints to her free will were removed by Kiara, she was unable to control her status abnormality and went into overload.
    As NPCs can only do routine work, they ignored Sakura while she was crashing down as being “non-existent”, and since the mooncell only performs a check at the end of the day in the preliminaries, Sakura was within an inch of termination.
    (MC name) witnessing this called to her. Are you okay, he/she said.
    The observation of Sakura “being here” by a third party helped her recover her close to disappearing unconscious, and the subsequent nursing gave her a clear ego of “wanting to be here”. Her self-destruction was averted.
                 ◆
    What happened afterwards need not be said.
    When the next day comes, everything will be erased by the mooncell. Sakura wanting to continue this one day miracle used her higher class AI privilege to repeat the day she came to know the MC for 69 days.
    However as time passed, Sakura came to suffer from her self-contradiction as an AI and from the fact that she dragged (MC name) into this.
    “The Masters participating in the holy grail war will all die, barring one exception. No, even then (MC name)…..”
    Sakura continued to suffer from her desire to continue the loop for eternity and her feelings for (MC name)
    The decision she chose ultimately was to seal the 69 days worth of memory, the love she acquired, so she could return to being a normal AI.
    An AI cannot delete records.
    Because of that, she moved the memory to a backup machine to reset herself.
    Believing that to be the best choice for (MC name).
                 ◆
    But even if the memories in the mind are lost, the memories recorded by the body continue to live. Though she had forgotten everything and was back to being a normal AI, she was shaken by emotional values of unknown origin every time she talked with the MC.
    Meanwhile, the backup to which she moved her memory, couldn’t tolerate herself, and she decided her course of action and made her move as BB, the rebel plotting to destroy the system of the mooncell for a certain objective.
    The timing she took control of the far side of the moon was between the end of the fifth round and the beginning of the sixth in real time. Four Masters who were not defeated yet, (MC name), Leo, Rin, and Rani, and the irregular exception Jinako were kidnapped to the far side during the war while they were still alive.
    Matou Shinji, Gato, Julius were moved to imaginary space 0.00001 seconds before the firewall would have destroyed them after they were defeated, prolonging their flash of life.
    Regardless, CCC is a dream by BB.
    If the dreamer is no more, the world ought to return to a reality where nothing happened.
                 ◆
    By the way, the everyday scenery in the prologue that (MC name) saw in his nightmare was an artificial paradise modeled off the discarded 69 days.
    After pulling (MC name) to the near side, BB placed his digital body in the old school building, putting into a deep sleep and sealing him in a never ending dream.
    Normally, he would have lived peacefully in the looping everyday life, but the strength of his bond with his Servant, or his own will rejecting the peaceful days caused cracks in the artificial garden and (MC name) came to notice something was not right.
    In order to place (MC name) into deep slumber once more, BB reset the school building and tried to redo the dream, but the (MC name) escaped the reset and leaped into a deeper part of imaginary space
    It was a depth deeper than the bottom of Id.
    “The death of the collective unconscious” beneath the unconscious.
    What saved (MC name) who leaped into a region even BB cannot affect was the voice of the Servant whose fate was shared with his.
    Thus, the contract was sealed, and (MC name) woke up in the old school building left in the far side.

    01 - 霊子虚構陥穽
    霊子 虚構 陥穽カースド・カッティング・クレーター

    この舞台の正式名称。
    悪性情報を貯蔵するだけの虚数空間だった“ここ”は、BBがムーンセル中枢に到達した事実をもって、現在・過去・未来において実数空間として成立。
    彼女の手によって、マスターたちでも存在できる“月の裏側”として再構築された。

                 ◆

    原初の女神の力を手に入れたBBは生命が生まれる前の『無』を数値化する事に成功。
    時間も空間もあやふやな虚数空間の使い手に変革した。

    どれほどの時間を要しようがハッキングできないムーンセルだが、BBは『無限の時間』の概念に自分を置く事で攻略した。

    02 - 日々の名残
    日々の名残:
    予選中、キアラの手によって自由性を解放された彼女はそのステータス異常を制御できずに過負荷を起こした。

    NPCたちはルーチンワークしかできないため、自壊しかけていた桜を“無い”ものとしてスルーし、予選ではムーンセルのチェックは一日の終わりにしか行われないため、桜は消滅の危機にあった。

    その異常を目の当たりにした岸波白野は彼女に呼びかける。大丈夫か、と。

    桜は“自分はここにいる”という他者からの観測を受けて消滅寸前だった無意識を持ち直し、その後の看病によって明確に“ここに在りたい”という自我を獲得。自己消滅から免れた。

                 ◆

    その後の事はもはや語るまでもない。
    翌日になればすべてムーンセルの手によって消されてしまう。この、たった一日の奇蹟を続けたがった桜は上級AIの特権を使用して
    “岸波白野と知り合った一日”を69日間、繰り返した。

    しかし日が進むにつれ桜はAIとしての自己矛盾と、岸波白野を取り巻くある事実に苦しむ事になる。

    “聖杯戦争に参加したマスターは、ひとりを除いてみな死亡する。いや、そもそも岸波白野は————”

    桜は幸せな時間を永遠にループしていたという我欲と、岸波白野への思いに苦しみ続けた。
    結論として、彼女は正常なAIに戻るため、69日に及ぶメモリー……獲得した“愛”を封印する道を選んだ。
    AIには記録を消す事はできない。
    そのため、バックアップの機体にメモリーを移動させる事で自らをリセットしたのだ。

    それが岸波白野にとって、もっとも正しい選択と信じて。

                 ◆

    だが精神の記憶は失っても、肉体が記録した思い出は生き続ける。
    すべてを忘れ正常なAIに戻ったはずの彼女は、岸波白野と話すたびに正体不明の感情値に揺れ動かされる事になる。

    一方、メモリーを移植されたバックアップはそんな自分を許せず、ある目的のためムーンセルのシステムを破壊する反逆者・BBとして自らの方針を定め、行動を開始した。

    彼女が月の裏側を掌握したタイミングは、現実時間で“聖杯戦争 五回戦終了~六回戦開始前”。
    まだ敗退していなかった岸波白野、レオ、凛、ラニの四名、そしてイレギュラーのジナコは聖杯戦争の途中、生きている状態で月の裏側に拉致された。


    間桐シンジ、ガトー、ユリウス、といったマスターは聖杯戦争で敗れた後、ファイヤーウォールによって消滅する“0.00001秒前”に虚数空間に移動させられ、一瞬の命を長らえていた。

    どちらにせよ、C.C.C.はBBが見ていた夢である。
    夢を見ていたものが消え去れば、世界はもとの、何事もなかった現実に戻るだろう。

                 ◆

    また、余談ではあるが岸波白野が悪夢として見た冒頭の日常風景は、捨てられた69日間をモデルにして作られた人工楽園である。
     
    BBは岸波白野を月の裏側に引きずりこんだ後、旧校舎にその電脳体を安置させ、深い眠りに落とし、覚めない夢の中に閉じこめた。

    通常ならループする日常の中で平和に過ごすのだが、サーヴァントとの強い繋がり、あるいは、安寧の日常を否定する岸波の意思によって人工楽園に綻びが生じ、岸波は異常に気がつくのだった。

    BBはもう一度岸波白野を深い眠りに落とすため、校舎をリセットして夢をやり直そうとしたが、岸波はそのリセットからも逃れ、虚数空間の更なる深部に飛びこんでしまう。

    そこはイドの底のさらに底。
    無意識の下にある、“集合無意識の死”である。
    BBでさえ手を出せない領域に飛びこんだ岸波白野を救ったのは、運命を共にするサーヴァントの声だった。

    かくして契約は交わされ、岸波白野は月の裏側に残された旧校舎で目を覚ます事になる。

    Noble Phantasm
    An Gal Tā Seven Colors: Heavenly Peak-Visiting Rainbow of Venus
    Rank: EX
    Type: Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm

    Profile
    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.

    Level 1 Bond
    Height/Weight: 159cm・47kg
    Source: Ancient Mesopotamian Mythology
    Region: Mesopotamia
    Alignment: Lawful Good  Gender: Female
    As usual, a fickly goddess who does not keep her feet on the ground. Seems that she has a white, high-leg swimsuit underneath that hooded jacket.

    Level 2 Bond
    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.

    Level 3 Bond
    "Heavenly Peak-Visiting Rainbow of Venus"
    Rank: EX  Type: Anti-Unit  Range: 0~??
    An Gal Tā Seven Colors.
    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.

    Level 4 Bond

    • 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.

    • Summer Breaker!: A

    A goddess that breaks (in many different ways) the summer.
    A downsized version of Goddess Metamorphosis.

    Level 5 Bond
    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...?

    Interlude
    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.

    (1) probably irrelevant, but the original Japanese text uses the same term for ‘integrated circuit’ here

    女神たるもの、格闘技の一つや二つは修得しているのが当たり前……という訳ではもちろんなく。
    イシュタルがここまで巧みに動けるのは依り代になった肉体が魔術も格闘技もしっかり修得していたからである。

    アーチャーのイシュタルが使う弓は天舟マアンナの船首部分を取り外したものであるが、今回は天舟の「櫂」の部分をスクーターに変化させ、乗り物としている。スクーターは現代のスクーターそのものの外見だが、とうぜん、性能は女神クラス。空も飛ぶしワープもする。
    イシュタルの足元には謎の生物がもそもそと動いているが、イシュタルはこの生物に関してはノー・コメントを貫いている。

    ウルクを救ったマスターを将来有望な勇者として目をつけているものの、「なんでこんな平凡なのが勇者になるんだろう?」と首をかしげる事もあるとか。不思議な人間、と捉えている。
    今回はその人望(サーヴァントたちに信頼されている)を見込んで彼/彼女をイシュタルカップのスタッフに雇用するが……?

    アンロック条件:「デスジェイル・サマーエスケイプをクリアする」をクリアすると開放
    懲りるという事を知らないのか。

    夏の祭典、イシュタルカップ。
    それはイシュタルの持つ使い魔・天の牡牛グガランナを復活させる為の大儀式だった。
    メソポタミア世界を襲った災害の日にグガランナを無くし、面目を丸つぶれにされたイシュタルは虎視眈々とリベンジの時を待っていたのだろう。

    そして、その結果が今回のこれである。
    もう一度言うぞ。懲りるという事を知らないのか。

    女神イシュタルはバビロンの蔵からこっそり拝借した貴重な祭具を聖杯に変換し、その力でコノートの土地に金星のテクスチャを張り、力ある英霊たちが大地に感謝を捧げる(レースをする)事でグガランナをもう一度作ろうと目論んだ。
    イシュタル神殿を巨大な魔力リソース集積回路に作り替えたのもその一環。イシュタルQPS(クォンタムピース・パワー・システム)は人々はおろか英霊たちからも魔力を吸い上げ、自らのものとする悪夢の集金装置である。QPが溜まれば溜まるほどイシュタルの神格がアップしていく。その所業、まさに邪神の中の邪神。
