Beast II's True Name is Tiamat (ティアマト, Tiamato?), one of the Primordial Deities in Mesopotamian Mythology/Sumerian Mythology. Before being called Tiamat, she was known as the Goddess of Beginning, the primordial sea, Nammu. Along with Abzu, she was manifested from the Sea of Dawn (黎明の海, Reimei no Umi?)—an Ocean of Void (無の海, Mu no Umi?) that lies below the Underworld of Ereshkigal, said to have once been under the administration of the god Enki. 
In Sumerian Mythology, the gods were given birth from the pairing of Tiamat, who is the salt water, and Abzu, who is the fresh water. Afterwards, the gods, whom are their children, waved their banner of revolution against the primeval father Abzu and acquired supremacy over the world. At this moment, Tiamat gently approved the deeds of her children. It is proof that her love for her children has won over her love for her husband.
However, the gods pointed their blades even at Tiamat, their mother. Tiamat, in her grief and disorder, gave birth to 11 Magical Beasts as her new children, and they altogether had a showdown with the gods. At the end of the conflict, Tiamat and her 11 Magical Beasts were torn apart. It is said that the gods tore up her corpse into two, forming heaven and earth from it, and thus, had established the ritual for the creation of the World of Man.
Tiamat was “a womb discarded after the Genesis”, becoming the origin of Sumerian Mythology. She was turned into a “Mother Sea” and was put to use as a breeding ground to produce life, but once the earth’s environment stabilized and after the ecosystems were established, she was banished to the World of Imaginary Numbers (虚数世界, Kyosuu Sekai?) (a World on the Reverse Side (裏側の世界, Uragawa no Sekai?); an imaginary space that has no life and is not even a Parallel World) as something unnecessary. (Seeing that the ecosystem was already established, there is no need for her, one who designs life randomly, and it is said that regarding the course the lifeforms who acquired intelligence conforms to, she was nothing but an impediment by now.) Hereafter, Tiamat has been waiting in the mirror world for a chance to return back to her original world.
After obtaining the Holy Grail that Goetia stored within the heart of Kingu, the Sea of Life (生命の海, Seimei no Umi?, localized as "Primordial Sea") initially manifests a human-scale body known as Femme Fatale (ファム・ファタール, Famu Fata-ru?). It appears as a woman with light blue hair clad in leg and arm restraints, with features that represent the planet, large horns that symbolize the land, and eyes that reflect the inner sea of the planet. Gilgamesh refers to this as Tiamat's Cerebral Corpus; it is suggested to represent whatever remains of Tiamat's mind or consciousness. Upon partial awakening,her Cerebral Corpus is stained in red and black in a manner reminiscent of Dark Sakura.Following the annihilation of the Cerebral Corpus, the Sea of Life manifests Tiamat in the form of a Titan (巨人, Kyojin?)—later demonstrated to be capable of flight by the use of her Wing-Horns (角翼, Kakuyoku?). However, in the circumstance that Tiamat faces a severe threat, she enacts Self-Modification (自己改造, Jikou Kaizou?) and Saint Graph Dilation Operations (霊基膨張工程, Reiki Bouchou Koutei?) to assume a Draconic Body (竜体, Ryuutai?)—referred to as her "true appearance". After the Draconic Body is imposed with the "Concept of Death" (死の概念, Shi no Gainen?) by the Old Man of the Mountain, da Vinci confirms that Tiamat's Saint Graph Core (霊基核, Reiki-Kaku?) is situated within its brain.
To clarify, Tiamat's assumed appearances are, with the exception of her Draconic Corpus, said to express her existence as a Divinity (神性, Jinsei?, lit. "Divine Nature"). However, the assumption of her Draconic Body is described by Romani Archaman to entail an unveiling of her complete and unadulterated existence—moving him to distinguish it from Tiamat's other states as "the very Corpus of a God" (神の体, Kami no Karada?, lit. "Flesh of God"). Though Tiamat's combat capabilities and defenses are indeed the strongest upon assuming her Draconic Corpus, Jaguar Man comments that this is in reality Tiamat in her weakest, most vulnerable state.
Owing to Tiamat's Authority (権能, Kennou?) over the Sea of Life and her capacity for Self-Modification, she is capable of freely remodeling her Saint Graph, and therefore is unrestricted to the appearances described above.
The Black Mud of the Sea of Life is also included in Tiamat’s height. Her height matches the area of the Indian Ocean. However, given that the mud is made up of Imaginary Numbers, her weight cannot be measured. Essentially the same as zero. On the other hand, its volume grows to be infinite. In short, it is a 4-dimensional pocket.
Something like a personality cannot be confirmed from her. Whether Tiamat has lost her ideals, or whether she has no reason since the beginning, it can be interpreted as either way, but one cannot surmise the reason. Although she simply birthed, raised and loved her children, which was viewed as her only meaning in life, she has set out to fight against humanity, of whom they decided that for the sake of denying this meaning, they have declared “you are not needed.” Her behavioural ideology when becoming a Beast is extremely simple; she runs under the extremely primitive system of “If I do not kill humanity, I will be killed.”
Concerning Tiamat's motivation and attitude towards the Master, he/she is one of seven billion humans. Naturally a target for obliteration. As far as human beings are concerned, Tiamat is a repulsive aggressor (invader), but concerning Tiamat too, human beings are terrifying aliens (extraterrestrials).
Because Tiamat cannot converse, her pronouns are unknown.
In the Anime, Ritsuka Fujimura during the final battle against Beast II encountered a mental projection of Tiamat in her first form. Somehow she was able to make herself understood to him. Tiamat lamented that her children used her as a stepping stone, leaving her behind and that all she wanted was to be by their side.
After asking if her love was wrong, Ritsuka choose not to stab her like her previous children (the Sumerian Gods) and instead told her that her children loved her and that they had to "get going". In other words he thanked her for a Mother's Love as humanity grew up but now that they were adults she had to let them go.
"Please don't leave me. Please never... love me again."
In the end, Tiamat asked Ritsuka to not leave her behind and that if he (humanity) had to do so, to not love her again.
Babylonia: The Absolute Frontline in the War Against the Demonic BeastsEdit
While Beast II achieved her return to this world with the collapse of the Human Order Foundation and due to the power/distortion of the Holy Grail, she was however in the middle of a deep slumber. Setting aside the fact that Merlin's magecraft kept her asleep, once Beast II was attacked by Chaldea, she woke from her sleep and setted out to clean up humanity in accordance with her primal instincts.
Although there is resentment/hatred/sadness for being abandoned for having already served her purpose, there is also a conduct in indulging in the “joy” of coming back to repaint the earth’s ecosystems once again as the mother of everything.
Her Class was determined by her real nature mentioned above. The Primordial Goddess and the likes are but false titles. Deserted by the humans, that being is one of the great disasters most rejected by human history. That name is Beast II. One of the seven Evils of Man, the beast that carries the principle of “Regression”.
Also, the title called Femme Fatale was something given by Beast I (Goetia). Goetia successfully saw the true nature of Beast II’s core, so he bestowed a title meant for a Woman of Destiny rather than one meant for a Mother of the Gods (Magna Mater). At the bottom of her hatred towards humanity, there is also joy towards humanity for becoming a mother, as well as love towards humanity, them being the children of her first-generation children. For this reason, Beast II binds herself. A mother’s love is something necessary for growth, but it is something unnecessary for adults. In order for humanity to advance to the next stage, they must overcome the “original woman”.
In Fate/EXTRA CCC, Tiamat was mentioned in BB's Potnia Theron Skill. It is the authority of the Earth Mother Goddess whom BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the Moon Cell. It 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, among other goddesses.
Tiamat is said to be an "evil" Chaldea can't even imagine and a great demon that may even surpass the power of the King of Magecraft as claimed by Goddess Rhongomyniad. Being a primordial goddess, Tiamat's Magical Energy and firepower are incredibly vast. Without fully awakening due to being sealed, Tiamat is able to damage Chaldea's SHEBA 02, 06, and 09 by causing spatial rifts all over Mesopotamia and birth over one hundred million Laḫmu capable of spreading all over Mesopotamia in less than half a day. After receiving the Holy Grail, Tiamat is only able to manifest her brain in the form of "Femme Fatale" due to the seal still restraining her arms and legs. In this form, Tiamat possesses an ultra-ultra-ultra-class Magical Reactor core with seven times the magical energy of a Holy Grail and can release from her body as much energy as a Hydrogen bomb. Dr. Roman also claimed that had she fired at that moment she would have blasted Uruk even from that distance.
After voluntarily letting Ishtar destroy her body with An Gal Tā Kigal Shē, Tiamat restructures her Spirit Origin into a mega-structure post dispersion, increasing its scale. With an Authority that had not been seen since the era of Genesis, Tiamat also drastically increases her body mass. In this "Titan" form, Tiamat is said to be a perfect being with no physical or mythical shortcomings, with enough magical energy to travel between stars. In fact, not even aliens would be able to take her down. Even if both Quetzalcoatl and Ishtar had their full-powered authorities and the help of any other powers left in Mesopotamia they wouldn't be able to damage Tiamat. Tiamat boasts impressive durability and even the combined efforts of Quetzalcoatl's Xiuhcoatl and Gorgon's Pandemonium Cetus are only able to destroy her right horn without her main body taking any damage. In this state, Tiamat surpasses the power of any Heroic Spirit as even the Chains of Heaven formed from Kingu's Enuma Elish was only able to momentarily restrain her movements before she broke them, even though according to Gilgamesh that feat was equal to any other in Enkidu's life, a being whose combat strength is roughly the same as that of Gilgamesh during his prime. It is theorized that only Gugalanna, the greatest and strongest Divine Beast, would be capable of stopping her on her tracks for a day.
Even at her weakest, wounded after falling to the Underworld and receiving Ereshkigal's punishment, Tiamat's Authority is still powerful enough to corrupt the Underworld by spreading at an enormous speed, even though Ereshkigal is absolute law inside her domain and all deities are left powerless within it if she so chooses. Even in this state, Tiamat is able to grow her Spirit Origin and reboot her magical reactor once more, healing all her wounds and manifesting her true form, "Draconic Body". In this state, her strength is like that of a giant and she becomes immune to attacks ranked A++ or lower. She can no longer be considered a Servant possessing Divinity but only an actual deity.
On top of her firepower, strength, and endurance, Tiamat lacks the concept of death and can heal herself from the Sea of Life over time rendering her virtually unkillable without being able to enforce the concept on her powerful Saint Graph. According to the Corrupted Ushiwakamaru, only a Noble Phantasm capable of gathering all the magical energy of the entire era would be able to destroy the Sea of Life. In other words, only the Bands of Light in the sky can rival Tiamat. Even if her Sea of Life is completely destroyed, it will end up remerging from her body in a short while such as after being destroyed by Piedra Del Sol or after her fall to the underworld.
Tiamat is ultimately defeated in the Babylonia Singularity due to multiple factors. Mainly Merlin transforming the Sea of Life into flowers draining her power and King Hassan not only severing her wings but granting her the concept of "death" by downgrading her Saint Graph into that of a normal servant. These two attacks were able to weaken her enough so that the rest of Ritsuka's party could keep damaging her until Archer Gilgamesh ultimately dealt the finishing blow with Ea by destroying her weak spot in the head and therefore collapsing her Spirit Origin.
- Authority of the Beast (A Rank): An Anti-Humanity Skill that enhances the skill holders' capacity to harm Heroic Spirits, Divine Spirits, and all organisms birthed of the "Mother's Womb". This Skill is held not solely by the 2nd Beast but shared amongst all the Magical Beasts birthed of her womb.
- Independent Manifestation (B Rank): Lends the capacity to manifest independently within the temporal reality. Within seven days of manifestation, the Indian Ocean is smothered black; and Tiamat incessantly spawns Magical Beasts to the end of devouring humanity. However, as the body of the 2nd Beast is the ocean itself, it cannot make landfall. Therefore, the role of annihilating humanity is delegated to her children. At this rank, this Skill is furthermore a declaration of the holder’s presence across all of space-time and thereby grants immunity against existential threats by way of time paradox or the instantaneous imposition of death.
- In the 7th Singularity of Fate/Grand Order, the 2nd Beast overcomes her restriction against landfall by use of Self-Modification -- altering her horns into wing-like appendages and taking flight. Upon the eradication of the Sea of Life within her immediate environs by the Divine Authority of Quetzalcoatl, she is able to spontaneously regenerate her domain by dispensing tides of the Black Mud from the base of her feet.
- Self-Modification (EX Rank): Beast II can remold her Saint Graph through her Sea of Life. She can expand the scale of her standard Saint Graph (Femme Fatale), to a "Draconic Body" over 60 meters in height. In that form, Beast II is able to cancel any attacks ranked A++ or lower.
- Sea of Life (EX Rank): Tiamat's true Authority, it's the "Sea From Which Life Itself is Sprung". Because the sea circulates the True Ether that existed from the Genesis of the Earth, magical energy is infinitely supplied to Beast II while she's within the sea.
- The movement by which the Sea of Life extends its domain is referred to as the Chaos Tide. The substance of the Sea of Life is a Black mud pollutes that Saint Graphs and that fundamentally remakes any organism that enters unto the Sea as a "Child of Tiamat" that bears an arbitrary selection of the following skills: Environmental Modification, Environmental Fusion, and Unit Mitosis. Furthermore, the Children of Tiamat are imposed with a cellular-level Geis — a Nitrogenous Base Contract — that automatically renders them enemies of humanity. Servants are no exception to the process. The weight of the black mud cannot be measured due to it being made of imaginary numbers, making its volume unlimited. In short, it is a four-dimensional pocket.
- In the 7th Singularity of Fate/Grand Order, Kingu refers to the Sea as the Primordial Organism and the Sea of Chaos -- further stating that, amongst practitioners of Magecraft, the Black Mud is the substance referred to as the Mud of the Grail.
- Self-Seal (C+++ Rank): A chain of self-mutilation that ties down Beast II. Although Beast II hated her grief of being banished for “not being needed anymore” by the collective unconsciousness of humanity, the depths of her consciousness accepted that as something inevitable. Beast II, who has the role “mother” as her foundation, possesses a desire to function as a patron of humanity to the very end. This Self-Sealing is something that became that form.
- Beast II constantly seals herself. This self-inflicted pain is equivalent to giving herself damage that deals 50% of Beast II’s current HP every turn. In the rare cases where Beast II emerges from the sea while losing her self-control, the seal admonishes her for this and the damage is raised to 90% of her HP instead for a moment. This is why she has +++ in this Skill.
- Nega-Genesis (A Rank): A Skill of the same variety as the 6th Beast's Nega-Messiah. A manifestation of a Conceptual Bounded Field (Genesis of the Earth) expressed within the proper continuity of the History of Man, consequently proffering a nullification against the Noble Phantasms of any Servants generated as an output of the above processes. Specifically speaking, a barrier takes root against the Noble Phantasms of Servants with the attributes “Human” and “Star”.
- In the Anime it is referred to as an Authority that allows Beast II to create a new world by overwriting the current one, similar to a Reality Marble. The barrier expands and denies all established forms of life, those whose lives are over and have died, allowing it to instantly destroy Servants and even Divine Spirits like Ishtar while giving her space to create new life. As such, only the living are permitted to exist within the bounds of Nega-Genesis as their lives are not yet over. Only Ritsuka Fujimaru, new Laḫmu that are created within it, King Hassan and Fou are able to move in it without being destroyed.
- Monstrous Strength (A++ Rank): One’s ability as a monster. This Skill raises the user’s Strength. It is at about the highest possible level. This is why Tiamat’s Strength is that of a giant when she makes the black mud into her body and manifests in her "Draconic body". At the moment, only Tiamat and Kingprotea possesses this skill at EX rank..
- Potnia Theron: Due to being worshipped as an Earth Mother Goddess, Tiamat had the power of creation that originated from the forgotten goddess of Çatalhöyük. This Authority allowed Tiamat to function as a mobile creature factory that can "birth" millions of magical beasts from her true Authority, the Sea of Life. By using the endless magical energy supply, Tiamat could create millions of Lahmus in a few seconds, with each of them boasting power on par with the magical beast Ugallu. The most powerful creatures she created were the Bel Laḫmu, who possessed magical energy that surpassed that of a Demon God.
- Regression to the Age of Gods: Tiamat is able to reproduce mysteries that predate Magic, by regressing to the Jurassic Age Tiamat was able to use the Sea of Life to remodel her Saint Graph and transform into her "Draconic body" form, which gave her the body of a God.
- Romani Archaman and Gilgamesh hypothesize that Tiamat's existence as the Mother of Genesis renders as a Law of Nature the "fact" that she is "the first to be born into the World, and the last to die." That is to say, so long as another life exists within the same "World" as Tiamat, she may be incapable of dying.
- Romani Archaman terms this capability "Paradox Restoration" -- and for the purpose of neutralizing the phenomenon, Gilgamesh plots to entrap Tiamat within the Underworld (冥界, Meikai?, lit. "World of Death") domain of Ereshkigal, making use of its nature as a "World" wherein the only "life" that is properly recognized to exist are those existences subjectively defined as "the Living"at Ereshkigal's whim. Furthermore, as the domain was in part originally created to restrain and confine rogue gods, the Sanctions of the Underworld exert a strong Anti-Divinity effect by default, and would therefore hypothetically weaken Tiamat.
- In practice, however, it is unclear that Paradox Restoration is indeed one of Tiamat's actual capabilities, or whether the actions taken against her were in fact effective in neutralizing the phenomenon.
Creation and ConceptionEdit
It is a digression, but Tiamat was taken into consideration as a boss of a raid event when planning “Fate/Grand Order” in 2014. She is an anthropomorphism of the sea, someone similar to a generator that produces powerful Magical Beasts, and she was depicted as an unequalled beautiful woman that dissolves into the chaotic mud. During the moment Beast II appears, “Fate/Grand Order’s” image… becomes a fun Starship Troopers. It is also a service character that makes a homage to Dark Sakura of “Fate/stay night”. Revising that design is for some reason, two times more appealing, as long as you can see “Ah, it is a genealogy of that Dark Sakura.”
Comment from IllustratorEdit
"I joined together rivers/harvests and destruction (clear streams and sludge) growing wild as in the color image (of the black + red stripes) of Dark Sakura. I aimed at a simple silhouette of a little girl with gigantic horns + hiding her breasts.
Monster Form: For the MAP plan and on the occasion of expressing her parts, I crammed as many details of gigantic structures in order to potentially put them for another use. (I was thinking something like walking on a road above her horns.)"

Noble Phantasm: -
One of the creator deities of Mesopotamian myth.
The gods were born from the union of the freshwater Abzu and the saltwater Tiamat. Then, the gods rebelled against their father, and seized authority over the world from him.
Tiamat quietly approved of her children’s actions. It was proof that her love for her children outweighed her love for her husband.
However, the gods then turned their blades on Tiamat. Tiamat wailed and raged, birthing eleven new Magical Beasts to oppose the gods.
At the end of the war, Tiamat and the Eleven Beasts were destroyed.
The gods split Tiamat’s corpse in two, and used them to form the heavens and earth. It is said that this ritual created the world of humans.

The black mud is also included in Tiamat’s height. However, the mud is made of imaginary numbers, so her weight is unquantifiable.
Meanwhile, Tiamat’s volume is infinite. In other words, she is a four-dimensional pocket.
Unlock: Primal Planet, Admiring the Sky
Tiamat is the womb that was cast aside after the world was created.
She is the Maternal Sea who was used as the soil to give birth to life, but once the Earth’s environment settled and ecosystems were established, Tiamat was deemed unnecessary and driven out into the world of imaginary numbers. (The Inner World. Lifeless imaginary number space, not a parallel universe.)
Because the Earth’s ecosystems were established, Tiamat, who randomly designs life, was no longer needed.
The goddess became nothing more than an obstacle to the process by which life forms acquired the intelligence determined by the planet.
Since then, Tiamat has been waiting in the world of imaginary numbers for her chance to return to Earth.

- Authority of the Beast: A
This can be considered an anti-humanity Skill.
It is an ability that is especially effective against Heroic Spirits, Divine Spirits, and all things born from the mother’s body.
This Skill is not possessed solely by the Second Beast, but also by all Magical Beasts she gives birth to.
- Independent Manifestation: B
The Skill to manifest independently in the current world.
Seven days after manifestation, the Indian Ocean will be smothered black.
Once Tiamat manifests, she unceasingly gives birth to Magical Beasts, and sets out to devour humanity.
However, the body of the Second Beast is the ocean itself, so it cannot move onto land. Instead, it is her children’s role to mop up the human race.
Furthermore, this Skill is an expression of the holder’s presence across all of space-time, rendering her immune to attacks by methods such as time travel paradoxes, and canceling out all instant death attacks as well.
- Self-Modification: EX
Tiamat can remold her own Saint Graph using the black Sea of Life.
Her body can grow from its standard Saint Graph (Femme Fatale) into that of a dragon over 60 meters in length.
Once Tiamat becomes a dragon, attacks against her of A++ rank or lower are nullified.
Unlock: Primal Planet, Admiring the Sky
- Sea of Life: EX
The Second Beast itself is the sea which gives rise to life.
It cycles the True Ether of primordial Earth, so its mana supply within this sea is infinite.
All who are caught and drowned in the black mud are randomly assigned the following Skills: Self-Modification, Life Transformation, Life Fusion, and Individual Multiplication.
Once these organisms exit the sea to make landfall, they are forced into a cellular-level geis — a nitrogenous base contract (amino-geis) — and automatically become enemies of humankind.
- Nega-Genesis: A
A Skill of the same type as Nega-Messiah, which is possessed by the Sixth Beast.
It is a conceptual bounded field which completely overturns modern evolutionary theory and the predictions of Earth’s genesis.
Thanks to this ability, the Second Beast has acquired a strong resistance to the Noble Phantasms of Servants created by correct human history.
- Monstrous Strength: A++
One’s ability as a monster. This Skill raises the user’s Strength.
It is at about the highest possible level. This is why Tiamat’s Strength is that of a titan when she makes the black mud into her body and manifests in her draconic form.

With the collapse of the cornerstone of anthropic principle, Tiamat managed to return to this world with the power of the Holy Grail. And yet, she was in middle of a slumber.
Setting aside wherever it was caused by Merlin’s magecraft, she awoke from that sleep due to the attack from Chaldea and set out to eradicate mankind in accordance with her instincts.
While there is resentment・hatred・sadness for being discarded as someone who had already served her purpose, this is also a deed of indulging in the “joy” of once again repainting the Earth’s ecosystem and having everything come back to the mother.
Her Class was determined by this true nature described above.
The goddess of genesis and the likes are nothing but fake names.
Deserted by humans, this is one of the most rejected great disasters in human history.
Its name is Beast II.
One of the seven human vices, the beast carrying the principle of "regression."
Unlock: Primal Planet, Admiring the Sky
It is impossible to confirm if Tiamat possesses anything resembling a personality.
Perhaps she lost her intellect, or perhaps she never had one to begin with. Either is acceptable.
The only meaning to her existence is to create, raise, and love her children. Thus, she set out to make war against humanity for declaring that it has no need for her.
It is the functioning of an extremely primitive system: “If I do not exterminate modern humanity, I will be killed.”
•Motivations・Attitude towards the Master
One of seven billion. An obvious target to be obliterated.
While the Second Beast is a repulsive invader to humanity, humans are terrifying aliens (extraterrestrials) to the Second Beast.

1: My Lord, what precisely is the Abyss (深淵, Shinen?)?
2: Is there actually something further down than the Underworld?
There is. The World of Mesopotamia comprises of Heaven and Earth. That which here lies below the Earth known as the Underworld -- and deeper still there rests the Abyss.
The Abyss is an Ocean of Void (無の海, Mu no Umi?). It is from those dark waters that the God Apsu and the Goddess Tiamat manifested, crafting the World of Mesopotamia.
If it must be described, it is the Sea of Dawn (黎明の海, Reimei no Umi?), which existed before the creation of life.
Being that the God Enki has at present vacated his posting as the Administrator of the Abyss, were one to plunge into it now, there would be no returning.
It's the place where Lord Gilgamesh sought the Herb of Immortality (不老不死の霊草, Furou-Fushi no Reisou?), isn't it?

Gudako:It's over 2000 meters to the surface ...
1: We're falling~!
Indeed, we're falling ... ! Below is -- I can't see it very clearly!
At this rate, we'll die to the plummet before the Goddess Tiamat!
Ereshkigal grants floatation.
I won't permit any such thing.
I hereby bestow to you the privilege to buoy yourself afloat (浮遊権, Fuyuu-ken?, lit. "Privelege of Floatation") within the Underworld (冥界, Meikai?).
Gather your mana (魔力, maryoku?, lit. "magical energy") at the base of your feet, and imagine a surface.
This should grant you a bit of capacity for flight.
Alright, I'll give it a try!
But I'm afraid that salutations will have to wait.
Look over there!
The Underworld is lit with lightning.
That's ... the Goddess Tiamat!?
We've successfully lured her into the Underworld!?
Indeed. Glance upwards. You can glimpse Uruk from here, can you not?
That Ishtar shattered the foundations of Uruk, causing it to collapse into the Underworld (here).
The Underworld of the Age of Divinities is amazing as expected -- though I'm not sure whether this place would be considered deep or shallow ...Saint Graph Dilation Operations (霊基膨張工程, Reiki Bouchou Koutei?) has ceased. Continuous reactivation (連続再起動, Renzoku Saikidou?) of Mana Reactor (魔力炉心, Maryoku Roshin?) confirmed ... !
No, more importantly -- what the hell is that!?
A heat source comparable in magnitude to Ishtar's Noble Phantasm is steadily consuming Tiamat!?
It's a defense mechanism (防衛機構, bouei kikou?) of the Underworld.
Any of the Living who trespass in this domain against my permissions are so afflicted.
This is a rule established by the World itself.
And once the process is begun, the end is certain -- even for the Goddess Tiamat.
In any case, what of Lord Gilgamesh (ギルガメッシュ王, Girugamesshu-Ou?, lit. "King Gilgamesh")?
Is it time yet to deliver the final blow?
The man ordered that we stand by until all parties arrive at their stations, but is that truly necessary?
Now would be the time to act, if our purpose is to secure a victory.
That's ... I definitely agree.
But Ereshkigal-san, Lord Gilgamesh is already ...
1: ... even so, if we don't fight
... yeah, I get it. Even if it's just us, we have to do this.
If you're ready, then let's begin!
Leave it to my disgression, for neither Lord Gilgamesh nor Ishtar are needed here and now!
Ereshkigal gathers energy.
I shall settle this alone ... !
O Gallu (ガルラ霊, Garura-rei?, lit. "Gallu Spirits") of the Underworld -- the Spears of Rot (腐敗の槍, Fuhai no Yari?, lit. "Spears of Putrefaction / Degeneration") arrayed before me!
Against that which trespasses, let us bring down the Iron Hammer of the Underworld (冥界の鉄槌, Meikai no Tettsui?)!
All hands, engage!
Destruction rains upon Tiamat.
What say you? I believe it's good as finished. Even the Goddess Tiamat is within the Underworld merely a goddess.
Before the combined onslaught of myself and the Gallu, not a single being -- a single --
Chaos Tide manifests.
Wha -- what --
Chaos Tide (ケイオスタイド, Keiosu Taido?), compromising (侵食, Shinshoku?, lit. "eroding / encroaching") the Underworld!
This is bad! If we leave it alone, the Underworld will be overtaken!
And that's not all ... what is this?
Beast II Saint Graph (霊基, Reiki?, lit. "Spiritual Foundation") signature -- rapidly dilating (膨張, bouchou?, lit. "expanding / swelling")!
The Divine Regression (神代回帰, Jindai Kaiki?, lit. "Regression to the Age of Divinities") of the Saint Graph has advanced unto the Jurassic Era (ジュラ紀, Jura-Ki?).
That's no longer a Divinity (神性, Jinsei?, lit. "Divine Nature")! Unmistakably, it's the very Corpus of a God (神の体, Kami no Karada?, lit. "Flesh of God")!
Eh, eh, eh -- !?
Wh- what's happened!?
Is it something that I've done -- !?
Injuries incurred by the plummet into the Underworld are regenerating!A bit stereotypical, but it's inside the head! The Saint Graph Core lies not within the heart, but within the brain of the Goddess Tiamat!
-- it's come ... ! This is --
This is the true appearance of Beast II!
Tiamat emerges from the Mud, having assumed her Draconic Corpus.
Clouds of Lahmu spill forth.
The Goddess Tiamat is releasing Lahmu (ラフム, Rahumu?) from her flesh!
They're spreading across the Underworld!
It's impossible, right!? No matter how I look at it, it's impossible!
If it's only us, there's no way we can defeat something like that!
More than that, the tide is upon us!
The Underworld will be taken from me -- !
Don't be sayin' sad things, Sukapon-ta~n! Ain'tcha the Goddess of the Land of Death, nya~!?
Lahmu killed by a spear.
Jaguar Man appears.
That's right! It's a bird; it's a balloon -- no, it's merely your imagination!
I am the Tiger that dashes across the Underworld -- the one that they call JAGUAR MAAAAN!!
1: You're kinda burnt!?
A whole buncha stuff happened, so I'll explain later!
In any case, you did well getting this far, Gudako-san!
2: You came dashing to me!
Yeah, uh-huh. And I totally don't mind the fact that you didn't give me a shout when you got back to Uruk, so don't worry about that.
In any case, you did well getting this far, Gudako-san!
A tiger! A tiger has appeared in the Underworld!
Inconcievable! Is such a thing commonplace in the lands afar!?
It's a thing alright, little girly!
And less chitterin' already! Get back to blastin' away with that awesome attack o' yours!
B- but, it's completely without effect ... !
And the total energy output of the Underworld is dropping off!
Has to be done, even if it's without effect!
Listen up. No matter what it looks like, that right there is the Goddess Tiamat in her very weakest state!
Us! Right here, right now! If we don't do somethin' about this, it ain't just Humanity that's gonna be done for. It'll be bye-bye for the Earth itself!
If she gets back ta the surface in that state she's in right now?
In less than a day, the whole planet's gonna be swimmin' in Black Mud (黒泥, Kokutei?).
That can't be ... Doctor, what she said just now ...
It's the truth!
As of right now, the Chaos Tide has already subsumed the majority of the Underworld!
It can't be permitted to reach the surface! By some means or another, we have to put an end to it right here!
Thankfully, the Chaos Tide and the Lahmu are both of the same existence as Tiamat, and don't actually qualify as "seperate organisms."
So long as she remains within the Underworld, the act of killing Tiamat shouldn't be negated by way of Paradox Restoration (逆説的復元, Gyakusetsu-teki Fukugen?)!
But, there's already so much Mud!
In such circumstances, how precisely are we to properly engage --
What in the world -- !?
Flowers cover the Black Mud.
1: Flowers are blooming ...
2: These flowers. It can't be ... !
The Divine Authority (権能, Kennou?) invested within the Chaos Tide has ceased operation!?
No -- the function (機能, Kinou?) of the Authority's run its course, and the Tide's become nothing more than normal mud!
It sounds impossible, but --
These flowers -- they're somehow depleting (枯渇, kokatsu?, lit. "becoming drained / exhausted") the Goddess Tiamat of her power (力, chikara?, lit. "power, in the sense of an ability possessed")!
Good! Seems that I've made it in time -- !
And to Archaman of the uninspired imagination, I have only this to say!
If you desire to neutralize the Sea From Which Life Itself is Sprung (命を産む海, Inochi wo Umu Umi?), you need only make use of the Life that it births -- investing it within creatures small and innocuous!
This is of course where I come in!
The Magician of the Flowers (花の魔術師, Hana no Majutsu-shi?) arrives, come to make true upon his appellation (二つ名, Futatsu-Na?)!
Merlin drops to the ground before the protagonists.
How are you here!? It can't be that you were resummoned (再召喚, sai-shoukan?)!? No-no-no!
Hahaha, of course not.
It's impossible that I would be resummoned.
This is something a lot less complicated.
I'm the actual Merlin -- the authentic article.
In a rush, I've run here all the way from Avalon (アヴァロン, Avaron?)!
1: This man got here on foot!
2: So, you could actually run here!
Yeah. Seeing as the World's been reduced to a tabula rasa (白紙状態, Hakushi Joutai?, lit. "state of being white paper") by the Incineration of the Common Sense of Man (人理焼却, Jinri Shoukyaku?), I was able to sneak here by way of the Faerielands (妖精郷, Yousei-Kyou?)!
I absolutely despise sad farewells. No matter what, I wouldn't permit a parting by death.
Consequently, I've bent my principles (信条, shinjou?) a bit, and escaped the tower of my imprisonment (幽閉塔, Yuuhei Tou?, lit. "Prison Tower").
Of course, it was for the sake of meeting you all.
Yes! We were waiting for you, Merlin-san!
It's a happy thing that we were able to meet each other again!
Beast II -- dorsal Wing-Horns (角翼, Kakuyoku?) deployed!
See that? With Merlin's provocations, she's decided to get serious on us!
Even if we've prevented Beast II from subsuming the Underworld, her Primary Corpus is still free to act!
She's ascending to Uruk -- to the surface!
1: Her wings have regenerated ... !
2: Merlin, isn't there something you can do!?
... hm. It took the labors of two goddesses to slow the advance of the Primary Corpus (真体, Shintai?, lit. "True Body").
Using the city of Uruk itself as bait, we've lured her to entrapment within the depths of the Underworld.
We've restricted (拘束, Kousoku?) her with the Chain of Heaven (天の鎖, Ten no Kusari?); with the Sanctions of the Underworld (冥界の刑罰, Meikai no Keibatsu?) --
and with my flowers, which are merely beautiful.
Gudako-kun -- and Heroic Spirits all.
For the purpose of reaching this juncture, we have indeed played many a hand.
However, it still isn't enough.
That is a being that is yet to to know Fear (恐怖, Kyoufu?) -- yet to know the meaning of Predation (天敵, Tenteki?, lit. "natural enemy / predator").
She is yet to know the Death (死, Shi?) that He Is Become.
He ... ?
Is there somebody else coming to help?
Oh, indeed there is.
One final trump, held in reserve.
And so, who was it that called Him here, do you suppose?
It wasn't Lord Gilgamesh. It certainly wasn't the Grail of the King of Magecraft (魔術王の聖杯, Majutsu-Ou no Seihai?).
... It shouldn't be necessary to explain it, really.
It was you, Gudako-kun.
He mentioned that it was to repay a favor owed to you that he abandoned (捨てる, suteru?) the Station of the Crown (冠位, Kan'i?, lit. "Crown Position").
And the enemy that stands before us is an Evil of Man (人類悪, Jinrui-Aku?) -- a Beast (ビースト, Bi-suto?).
From the very start, the requisite conditions for his manifestation in this land were met.
The battles that you've fought until now have not been without meaning.
-- It can't be.
You mean, the one that suppressed Gudako's vital signature (生命反応, Seimei Han'ou?, lit. "Life Reaction") when she entered the Underworld was ... !
Glance heavensward, O Sea of Genesis (原初の海, Genshou no Umi?, lit. "Primordial Ocean")!
For there, your Death (死神, Shinigami?, lit. "Death God") awaits!
Ziusudra overlooks the Underworld from Uruk.
... That which cannot die, cannot be said to have lived -- for a life absent of mortality cannot be life.
Yours is an eternity without advance -- a stagnation of endless slumber.
O Beast of Calamity (災害の獣, Saigai no Juu?) -- Evil born of Man.
Your rejection (排斥, Haiseki?) is in the end founded (根底, Kontei?, lit. "foundation") in the very benevolence (慈愛, Jiai?, lit. "love / affection") by which you sought to impose Regression (回帰, Kaiki?).
Though the Station of the Crown is to me unnecessary, there dwells within this blade the Proof of the Strongest (最強の証, Saikyou no Akashi?).
Ziusudra reveals himself as the Old Man of the Mountain.
Old Man of the Mountain:
A Goddess fallen unto beasthood you may be, but being that you are indeed the Mother of Genesis (原初の母, Genshou no Haha?), it is only proper that I give my name.
-- of the Abyss of the Shadowed Valley (幽谷の淵, Yuukoku no Fuchi?), I come to entreat (馳走, chisou?) you with the darkness of Death (暗き死, Anki Shi?).
I am Hassan-i-Sabbah (ハサン・サッバーハ, Hasan Sabba-ha?) -- the Old Man of the Mountain (山の翁, Yama no Okina?).
The Old Man of the Mountain leaps into the crevice of the Underworld.
Old Man of the Mountain:
The Evening Bell (晩鐘, Banshou?) tolls with your name.
Unto the Will of the Heavens (天命, Tenmei?), I consign those wings -- !
The Old Man of the Mountain cuts at Tiamat's wings, eliciting a cry.
-- Beast II Saint Graph Pattern (霊基パターン, Reiki Pata-n?), undergoing reorganization (変化, henka?, lit. "Change") ...
This is incredible ... He didn't merely cut away the Wing-Horns of the Goddess Tiamat; he imposed upon her "the Concept of Death" (死の概念, Shi no Gainen?)!
The physical scale (規模, kibo?) of the Goddess Tiamat remains unchanged, but the underlying Saint Graph has conformed to the standard pattern of a Servant!
She can be defeated!
As of this moment, the complete annihilation of Beast II has become a possibility!
Romani! I've got a read (特定, tokutei?, lit. "identification") on the Saint Graph Core (霊基核, Reiki-Kaku?)!
-- You hear that, Gudako!?
Target the head of the Beast II.
This is the true and final battle of attrition!
Tiamat sings, releasing a new wave of Lahmu.
Indeed -- and as expected of the Beast II.
In coming finally to appreciate the worth of a life, she has begun to resist in earnest!
Maximizing the birthing of the Lahmu, the Primary Corpus approaches the Walls of the Underworld (冥界の壁, Meikai no Kabe?)!
She intends to climb to the surface!
1: I'm not going to let you escape!
2: But before that, we're definitely going to ... !
Yes, that is indeed the case!
This is well and truly our last chance!
Mashu, Gudako-kun. The salutations of our reuniting can wait until later!
We come now to face the storm itself! Are you ready to make a stand?
-- Yes! Of course we are, Magician of the Flowers!
And Sempai -- I judge that this is the final confrontation (最後の局面, Saigo no Kyokumen?) of the Seventh Singularity (第七特異点, Dai-Shichi Tokuiten?)!
Though I'm weak of heart, please give me my orders, Master!
In order to repay the trust of all of those who have invested their faith in us up until this point --
I'll do everything within my power to shatter that Calamity (災害, Saigai?)!
1: Yeah, let's get to it, Mashu!
This is amazing ... ! My Underworld is filled with so many flowers!
-- no, that isn't right. This isn't the time or place for that.
Now that I've reestablished Jurisdiction (支配権, Shihai-ken?) over the Underworld --
I suppose it's fine. Consider this a one-time service.
I hereby bestow to you all the Privelege of Mobility (行動権利, Koudou Kenri?) within the Underworld, and the reinforcement of all strengths and capabilities (全強化, Zen-Kyouka?, lit. "complete reinforcement")!
As the Mistress of the Underworld (冥界の女主人, Meikai no Onna-Shujin?), I, Ereshkigal, so beseech!
O Heroes of the Surface (地上の勇者, Chijou no Yuusha?), let fall the Iron Hammer (鉄槌, Tettsui?) upon that Wyrm (魔竜, Maryuu?, lit. "Demonic Dragon")!
By the hands of you Humans who have unto the distant future marched, let Heaven and Earth by a linchpin (楔, kusabi?) be joined!
ここで！ 私たちが！ なんとかしないと人類終了どころか地球終了のお知らせよ！
げぇぇぇ、マ――リン！？なんでキミが！？ まさか再召喚！？ いやいやいや！

Tiamat is also one of the Earth Mother Goddesses that act as the components for the Alter Ego-class High-Servant Kingprotea created by BB.
 Fate/EXTRA CCC - BB (Moon Cancer) Matrix
Class: Moon Cancer
Noble Phantasm: Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
Keyword: Advanced level AI, khakkhara of direction
Strength: ★, Endurance: ★, Agility: ★, Magic: ★, Luck: ★
Golden Grail: EX, Self-Modification: EX, Potnia Theron: EX
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.０１ - C. C. C.

０３ - 支配の錫杖
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.
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.

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.

 Fate/Grand Order - Enkidu (Lancer) Profile [T]
Enkidu - Lancer
Illustrator and Voice actor
Illustrator: Shidzuki Morii
Voice Actor: Yū Kobayashi
Noble Phantasm: A++
Presence Detection: A+
Consummated Shape: A
Magic Resistance: A
Enuma Elish: O People, Lets Tie the Gods
Type: Anti-Purge Noble Phantasm
From its gentle tone and graceful bearings, one would never guess that this is a “Noble Phantasm with a will” that possesses a fierce combat power.
The chains that fasten heavens and earth, regarded by the King of Heroes Gilgamesh as one of the strongest.
A doll created by the hands of the gods, and also an offshot of the earth that harmonizes・becomes one with nature.
A tragic weapon that underwent many adventures as the sole friend of the King of Heroes and, after acquiring a human heart, returned to dirt as a doll.
Level 1 Bond
Source: Epic of Gilgamesh
Alignment: True Neutral Gender: -
“If you tell me to fight, I’ll fight.
After all, it is not like I hate fighting”
Level 2 Bond
One of the oldest heroes described in the Epic of Gilgamesh. A weapon manufactured by the gods.
Originally, it was “a clay work that could transform into anything” produced by the gods.
It phantasmagorically changes its shape in accordance with circumstances.
Its whole body is equivalent to a weapon of gods.
However, it does not have the same mentality or emotions as people, and at first it was not all that different from a wild beast.
It has been said that, after appearing on this world, it became aware of much by meeting with a single sacred prostitute and eventually choose to take the shape of a person (as its basic form).
This appearance is something modeled after said sacred prostitute out of respect.
Level 3 Bond
Its combat strength is roughly the same as that of the King of Heroes Gilgamesh on his golden age.
In the battle against Gilgamesh described on the Epic, it displayed a performance on par to him, who is recognized as one of the strongest heroes in human history.
The first friend ever discovered by Gilgamesh, who was an aloof existence, and it too perceives Gilgamesh as its peerless friend.
After the fight on the city of Uruk, the friends Gilgamesh and Enkidu underwent many adventures, but it ultimately lost its life after the battle with the divine beast Gugalanna.
Level 4 Bond
Introverted, active and self-assured.
Usually it just loiters like a beautiful flower but, once it gets on the move, it becomes a frightening active monster that doesn’t wait, has no mercy and show no self-restrain.
Since they are life forms born from the Earth, it also finds humans “appealing”. But, because humans think of themselves as beings apart from nature due to their intelligence, they rank low as protection targets.
It feels that animals and plants are existences closer to itself and it mostly takes action in order to protect them.
That being said, since it had great curiosity (intellectual craving) to begin with, Enkidu regards conversations with humans as an enjoyment.
If said character has an appealing personality (a totalitarian brimming with philantropous mentality, and yet who thinks of himself as foremost), it will demonstrate respect and admiration from the bottom of its heart, feeling joy in support him as a friend.
Level 5 Bond
- Transfiguration: A
A unique skill in which parameter values are allotted in accordance to the situation from a prescribed comprehensive value. Enkidu’s greatest feature.
The higher the rank, higher the comprehensive value becomes.
At times it makes STR into A Rank, at times it makes END into A Rank.
However, because the conversion limits of parameters is set in stone, it cannot make all parameters into A Rank.
Enkidu possesses a comprehensive value of 30, and each parameter consume the respectively values: A-7, B-6, C-5, D-4, E-3.
- Presence Detection: A+
The highest rank of presence detection.
It is possible to sense presences from long distances by using the land as a medium.
- Consummated Shape: A
By making use of the magic energy of the land, it restores itself to its former shape.
So long there is a supply of magic energy from the land, Enkidu’s body (which was produced from the clay of the Age of Gods) will never collapse.
A powerful regeneration・restoration ability that is completely unprecedented.
However, the soul is a different matter.
Level 5 Bond
"O People, Lets Tie the Gods"
Rank: A++ Type: Anti-Purge
Enkidu transforms its own body into a Divine Construct.
Becoming a linchpin that converted vast amounts of energy to pierce and tie the target.
Originally, Enkidu was a weapon dispatched by the gods in order to “restore Gilgamesh to god”.
The “Linchpin of Heavens” created so that gods and people would not separate, Gilgamesh.
