Berserker (バーサーカー, Bāsākā?) is a Berserker-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Berserker's True Name is Tamamo Cat (タマモキャット, Tamamo Kyatto?), one of the Tamamo Nine. After Tamamo-no-Mae underwent a millennium of training and attained divinity, she cuts off her other 8 tails when she returns to her one-tailed form. Each of her tails is left a portion of her divinity and becomes a Heroic Spirit.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Compared to Tamamo-no-Mae, she has more muscles than the original and is a little heavier.[1]

PersonalityEdit

She is the crystallization of Tamamo's more pure and sincere aspects. She is something like a wild cat that one cannot tell what it wants to do, nor what sort of mess it will make. As a dignity of a wild beast, once someone is served as a "lord" (主?, reads also as "owner"), she devotes her allegiance until the end. After forming a contract, Tamamo-Cat will turn into a guardian beast that wants nothing but to be helpful to her master (主人, shujin?, reads also as "husband"). Once things become like this, protecting the Master, the happiness of the Master becomes foremost and Cat stops thinking about her own joy.[1]

As a Berserker, it is basically difficult to come to a mutual understanding. However it is hard to call it a maddening since Tamamo-Cat had little reason to begin with, but nobody is really mindful for the circumstances are similar. Occasionally she surprises the people around her by muttering suggestive words. She shows no interest anything but tasty things, fun things, everyday fully enjoying a hunting lifestyle according to her whims.[1]

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Septem: The Eternal Madness Empire Edit

Tamamo Cat materializes on the Shaped Isle, along with Elizabeth Báthory, after Stheno materializes there. They're made her to test out her so-called "Hero's Cave" before the arrival of Ritsuka Fujimaru, Mash Kyrielight, and Nero Claudius. Cat was supposed to come out of the chest at the cave's end as the final trick following the chimera. That never had happened though because she apparently ate it. After the group complete her cave, Stheno introduces Cat and Elizatbeth; they have difficulty understanding Cat's nonsensical speech. She asks her why she didn't come out of the chest, but she deduces what happened when Cat responds nonsensically. Neither Cat nor Elizabeth help fight Caligula when he arrives on the island to kill Nero.

Singing Pumpkin Castle Adventure ~Mad Party 2015~Edit

Summoned by Elizabeth using a fragment of the Grail she found in Orleans, Tamamo Cat is recruited as a maid. After Ritsuka Fujimaru, Mash Kyrielight, Kiyohime enter the castle, Tamamo Cat expresses her doubts that Ritsuka is the last fool to come, though Elizabeth is confused by her strange commentary. She is then asked by Elizabeth if all the prepartaions for her grand entrance are finished, to which she answers that all the food has been cooked. After the group had defeated Mata Hari and Carmilla, Tamamo Cat states that the group is suffering when Elizabeth asks her.

Eventually, Tamamo Cat is confronted by the group in the castle's banquet hall. After threatening to sharpen her claws on Kiyohime's kimono after mistaking her statement of her suddenly appearing as an unwanted compliment, she sends monsters at the group. After the group defeat the monsters then her in battle, Tamamo Cat mistakenly believes that she was victorious. However, after Kiyohime points out that she lost, she decides to lead the group to Elizabeth. Tamamo Cat then leads the group to where Elizabeth is, which to the group's surprise is Ritsuka's room filled with Halloween decorations. After Elizabeth reveals that the event was an elaborate scheme to give Ritsuka a personal concert by her in their room, Tamamo Cat tells the group to voice their opinion on the foolishness of Elizabeth's scheme. She then calls forth some monsters for the ensuing fight after Kiyohime becomes enraged by Elizabeth's scheme. After the group defeat Elizabeth, Tamamo Cat notices Ritsuka convulsing slightly from Elizabeth's singing, and asks the others if they're okay.

SE.RA.PH. - Deep-Sea Cyber-Nirvana, Epic of Remnant: ExtraEdit

Cat is a Sentinel serving under BB. Ritsuka, Meltryllis, and Gawain encounter her when they come to SE.RA.PH.'s arm, formerly Seraphix's robotic operations. Ritsuka recognizes her as Tamamo who originally rayshifted with them before BB hijacked the rayshift. Cat however only remember waking up in SE.RA.PH. by herself. BB found her and placed on a total subjugation collar her to ensure she repays her debts for saving her. Cat warns because of that she has no control over her actions. She fights the group, but she is defeated because she didn't use the Karmaphage that BB made her. Cat has no clue what she's talking about though. She then jovially reprimands BB for not expecting this when she asked for her help. She then falls down a trap door that BB opened, complying with the ordered with BB's order to wait at her designated position as she falls.[2]

Ritsuka's party encounter her again when they come to the Flank Operator. She asks Ritsuka if they want to defeat her so they don't have to deal with more Servants in their party. She is delighted by their answer, and fights the group. After she is defeated, EMIYA Alter seemingly fatally shoots her. However, she lives because he used his knowledge of Magic Circuits to target and destroy the parts of her Spirit Origin infected by the Karmaphage. Now free of BB's control, Cat joins the group.[2]

Returning to the chapel, Cat introduces herself to Tristan and Mable Macintosh. She then takes a nap, leaving the complicated matters to the others. Ritsuka is able to discern her meaning when she indirectly reveals how to flip SE.RA.PH. over to access its back side. Cat isn't able to understand why EMIYA Alter is so distrustful, finding Tristan to be trustworthy.[2]

Joined by Cat and EMIYA Alter, the group arrive at the Flank Separator. Ritsuka hits the Separator, and SE.RA.PH starts shaking. BB contacts the group, and sends a Sentinel, Elizabeth Bathory, to punish them for their transgression. The group defeat her, but Passionlip begins approaching. Gawain holds her off, while Ritsuka successfully flips SE.RA.PH. over.[2]

The group arrive on the back side. Cat agrees with Ritsuka that Gawain is still alive, believing Passionlip's large chest would motivate him even more. Suzuka Gozen confronts them, but she gets infuriated when Cat calls her a fake foxgirl. Cat realizes she has a history with her original self, then explains her origins to Suzuka. She sends her into a rage after noting Suzuka acting like a teenage girl is a ploy. Suzuka ignores BB's orders to escort the group, and fights them. After the fight, Cat compliments on her move. She then asks her why she became a Sentinel, as she herself had no choice to become one. She assumes it was the same for Suzuka, but Suzuka claims it was because BB was impressed by her skills in the Holy Grail War. BB orders her to return to the temple. She tells the group to check out the Nape if they plan to head to the Command Roon. She then leaves saying the Seraphix's crew brought the crisis on themselves, and Seraphix was never just oil rig. EMIYA Alter notices the area corresponds to the Front Gate on the front side. Meltryllis reveals it was gate reserved for special employees who were mages. EMIYA Alter realizes it was used solely by employees who reported directly to the Animusphere. The group are then forced to destroy Attack Programs when the gate's alarm goes off. They eventually meet Robin Hood again. He warns Passionlip is waiting for them on the front side. He also reveals BB developed a weapon that can break "the shackles" on Passionlip's heart, along with her restraints. Robin then takes everyone except EMIYA Alter back to the front side.

The group arrive back on the front side being approached by Passionlip. BB reveals the only way to defeat Passionlip is to use the Maiden Coaster, a battle to conquer the mind. Meltryllis realizes that it's connected to the Code Cast Ritsuka bought earlier. Ritsuka only need to place their Passionlip's chest, but the group will need to pin her down first. Gawain then arrives to hold Passionlip long enough for Ritsuka to touch her chest. Upon doing so they're converted into Psuedo-Spiritrons by BB in order to enter Passionlip's mindscape. After being defeated in her mindscape, Passionlip collapses followed by Gawain, though he quickly recovers. Cat then carries Passionlip back to the chapel.[3]

Back at the chapel, Cat encourages Passionlip to introduce herself. She agrees with Ritsuka and Gawain that she's beautiful, saying something gentle and graceful that Meltryllis amd BB could learn from. She is delighted to see Passionlip smile, but she asks Tristan if he's fine with her since he despises Alter Egos. He replies it's fine for now since neither Passionlip nor Meltryllis are under BB's control now. Ritsuka then accesses another record from Seraphix's therapist recorded in her sleep through an unknown method. From it the group learn Seraphix has secret workshop meant to conduct a ritual that only be done on the seabed, with humans of varying Magic Circuits and Rayshift compatibility used as resources. They also learn a surviving Demon God, Zepar, possessed the therapist with intention of making humans realize their mental potential, and digitized Seraphix. He then rayshifted it to 2030 to prevent Chaldea from discovering his plan. He plans to sink it into the Mariana Trench's bottom and trigger his rebirth. Zepar then disposed of the therapist after BB was summoned to be his new partner. Meltryllis knew Zepar summoned BB to serve as his navigator, but BB placed restrictions on her and Passionlip to prohibited them from revealing SE.RA.PH's true origin and purpose. EMIYA Alter surmises Zepar somehow learned of the Moon Holy Grail War from an different timeline, and summoned BB to transform Seraphix into SE.RA.PH so he can be reborn. Meltryllis reveals BB summoned Servants to procure the Psuedo-Spiritrons needed to keep SE.RA.PH running. The group unanimously decide to defeat the Sentinels and BB before stopping Zepar's plan.[3]

The next morning, everyone discovers that Gawain was killed while they were sleeping. Meltryllis and Passionlip are accused by everyone except Ritsuka and Cat because they're Alter Egos. Meltryllis asserts they were outside at the time, and Gawain was too wary of her to allow her to ambush him. Seeing the lack of evidence, Tristan asks Ritsuka to continue exploring SE.RA.PH while he continues to stay behind to protect Mable and Arnold Beckman. He also asks EMIYA Alter to accompany Ritsuka so they can keep an eye on him. He is suspicious of both the Alter Egos and EMIYA Alter, but he understands the Alter Egos wish to protect Ritsuka while EMIYA Alter isn't especially concerned. Thus, he'll have the Alter Egos protect Ritsuka while EMIYA Alter keeps an eye on the Alter Egos.[3]

Returning to the back side, Cat was impressed Julius Caesar was able to last long enough with his smooth-talking until he faced her. Passionlip praises her claws, so Cat decides to teach her how to cook. She then reveals she is technically a Alter Ego since she was split off from the original Tamamo. She was apparently created to combat the Sakura Five, but she decides to not expound on that further. She then notes Passionlip and Meltryllis' personalities are wildly different from each other despite being "sisters". Meltryllis explains it's because she is based on BB's aggressiveness while Passionlip was based on her defensive personality. The group then head towards the Spine, the center of SE.RA.PH. Meltryllis reveals it is where Suzuka's temple is, and Suzuka is in charge of the back side. Cat believes they should defeat Suzuka without killing her, instead break her spirit. The group however find the Spine has been gated off. They're then contacted by Beckman via equipment Tristan brought back from the Command Room. He orders them to flip SE.RA.PH. once they're at the Spine, saying they should arrive at the planetarium. He also reveals SE.RA.PH will the reach the bottom of the trench in 15 real world minutes, or 24 hours in SE.RA.PH time. He ends his transmission after saying he'll meet them at the planetarium.[4]

Entering the Spine, the group soon arrive at Suzuka's temple. She reveals she and Tristan are the only Servants left in the Grail War. She proves too fast and strong for the group to pin her long enough for Ritsuka to open her Maiden Coaster. Arnold suddenly contacts them to warn SE.RA.PH has started to sink faster, so he orders them to defeat Suzuka quicker. Ritsuka ask Suzuka if she's fine with being Zepar and BB's flunky, which angers her. She insists she only belongs to the Master who summoned her, and confesses she wants to win the Grail War to grant their final wish of not wanting to die for nothing. In respond to her conviction, Cat uses her ultimate technique to trap Suzuka. Ritsuka uses this opportunity to open Suzuka's Maiden Coaster with the key they bought from BB earlier. After she's defeated in her mindscape, Suzuka tries to jump off a cliff. Cat stops her though, and convinces her to join them. Suddenly, a Demon God emerges from the ground that knocks Meltryllis into the dump. After it's killed, Beckman warns there are only eight hours left before SE.RA.PH reaches the seabed.[4]

Along with Tristan, the group are sent to the Cruel Thenar, Meltryllis' former territory, by BB. Meltryllis explains Seraphix was officially used for oil excavation, while secretly being used to investigate Leylines. She then asks Ritsuka to open her Maiden Coaster, knowing they brought the key to her heart from BB earlier. If defeated in her mindscape, her Karmaphage will also disappear, and the area will be unlocked. Ritsuka opens her Maiden Coaster and defeats her. She then transports everyone to the front side in front of the chapel. The group enter the chapel to rest, but they see no signs of Arnold, Marble, or EMIYA Alter. BB then announces SE.RA.PH will soon reach the seabed, and offers the chance to fight her at the planetarium. Ritsuka, Tristan, Cat, Passionlip and Suzuka leave for the planetarium while Meltryllis stays behind.[4]

The group arrive in BB's studio in the planetarium, and fight her. After BB seemingly disappears, the room becomes pitch black, and sound is also muffled. Someone tries to ambush the group, but they fail in their attempt. The group then find BB's studio gone, and discover 128 Coffins with people still inside. They're the Masters who summoned the 128 Servants. EMIYA Alter reveals Seraphix's core is called the Celestial Body Simulator, System Animusphere. It is here Zepar used the Master candidates to summon the 128 Servants. They died long ago, but the Coffins kepts their circuits active. The corpses continued to summon 128 Servants until Ritsuka arrived. EMIYA Alter confesses he destroyed the coffin's power source. He then prepares to kill Ritsuka to remove all knowledge of the planetarium's existence. Robin then arrives to help defeat EMIYA Alter. After he's defeated, Mable suddenly appears. Cat pretends to be surprised, having deduced she's a fake and the source of Seraphix's woes. In response to her demand, Mable reveals her true form, the therapist Kiara Sessyoin. She reveals she eventually reconciled with Zepar to try to save the people. She then reveals herself to be Beast III, the Beast of pleasure. She explains SE.RA.PH is shaped like a human body is because Zepar transformed Seraphix into her body. She confirms she summoned BB under Zepar's influence. Zepar taught her about parallel worlds. She eventually learned another version of herself, who usurped the Moon Cell in the Far Side of the Moon. Impressed by this version of Kiara, Zepar linked the two Kiaras together. Passionlip realizes Zepar used Kiara as a catalyst to give SE.RA.PH form. She reveals Kiara swallowed BB, Meltryllis, and her back in the Moon world. Since Kiara served as the basis of SE.RA.PH, Meltryllis and Passionlip were salvaged from her to become Sentinels. Kiara explains Zepar lacked the means to run SE.RA.PH, so he had to rely on the Alter Egos and BB, who had hacked SE.RA.PH from the Far Side of the Moon. Suzuka and Cat attack her with their Noble Phantasms after realizing her monstrosity when SE.RA.PH. cracks the seabed. It will continue to sink until it reaches the Earth's core, and once it arrives, Kiara will become one with the planet. Kiara proclaims that doing so she can bring salvation to the people. Before that however, she easily kills everyone except Ritsuka when they try to fight her. She tries to consume Ritsuka, but BB rayshifts them.[5]

The group arrive in an old classroom. She explains a time leap of approximately three hours is possible in the digital world if it's within a Quantum Time-Lock. The right coordinates also needed, which is the purpose of the class that's located approximately hundred meters above SE.RA.PH. BB explains further that SE.RA.PH digitized the Mariana Trench as it passed through it. Thus, under these circumstances, the higher they go, the further they go back in time. It is therotically possilbe to travel back to the point before Ritsuka's arrival if they return to the surface if they had the right coordinates. The problem though is escaping Kiara's sexual allure, which is acting like a gravitational field. BB explains the group would need exceed to the speed of light to escape, and while possible in the digital world, they would be destroyed in the process. She then reveals she was summoned to stop Kiara's plan, and that Kiara forced her to manage SE.RA.PH until now with the Grail War's conclusion. She also reveals Beasts come in pair, and Kiara is becoming the "R" of Beast III. She reveals further that Kiara used SE.RA.PH to become a Beast, but she's also still bound to it. The group then go to fight Kiara to prevent her from fusing with the planet.[5]

Cat and Suzuka stay with BB at her studio, while Ritsuka, Meltryllis, and Passionlip fight Kiara. After Kiara is destroyed, Cat congratulates Suzuka on helping BB halt SE.RA.PH's expansion. She had no idea that she had such skills. She then returns to Chaldea, intending to ensure there's delicious food ready when Ritsuka arrives.

Servant Summer Festival!Edit

As the Chaldea group becomes more accustomed to creating manga through each loop, Jeanne Alter reveals her desire to start upping the quality of their product. At Robin's suggestion that they begin expanding their group, Jeanne Alter agrees that she would take anyone who could help, "even a cat!" which prompts Tamamo Cat to barge into their room, dragging Boudica with her. Tamamo Cat is immediately hired for her previous experience with working on screentones, and she persuades Boudica to make her and the rest of the group a meal that will keep them energized for the rest of the week.

InterludeEdit

In her interlude Overflowing Wildness, Tamamo Cat tells Ritsuka that she wants to go to hunting, and proceeds to have Mash join them by threatening Cath Palug. After rayshifting to the Shaped Isle, the group is attacked by a pack of werebeasts. After the group slay the pack, Tamamo Cat proceeds to go into the forest to catch salmon in its river. However, at the river she encounters Asterios, who has claimed the river as his territory. Tamamo Cat then proceeds to fight Asterios with the others after she mistakes him for five-star beef. After the group defeats him, Asterios retreats, which saddens Tamamo Cat since she wanted to be friends with him. However, she quickly changes back to her usual happy disposition now that she can catch salmon. Proceeding to exit the forest, the group find themselves in a large plain, where they're attacked by David, who has mistaken them for sheep thieves. After David retreats after being defeated by the group, Tamamo Cat ask Ritsuka to stop her should she get out of control. Then, after taking one cattle, she reveals that the salmon and the cattle are the ingredients for the dinner she plans to make for Ritsuka. After Ritsuka and Mash express their surprise at Tamamo Cat's ability to cook, the group return to Chaldea, where she serves Ritsuka a large variety of food items.

Other appearancesEdit

  • Caster Female ending part 2
  • Caster Male ending part 2

Along with the eight other Tamamo Nine members, she appears in Caster's ending in Fate/EXTRA CCC.

AbilitiesEdit

Tamamo Cat's Noble Phantasm is Opulence of Sun and Shine and Catnap.

Mad Enhancement: Tamamo Cat's Class Skill. It increases her parameters by one Rank, but most of her reason is robbed in return. However, it's hard to call this maddening, as she didn't have much reason to begin with.

Shapeshift: A Personal Skill, that allows her to change her appearance into foxes and badger spirits, that are affiliated with Tamamo-no-Mae. Tamamo-no-Mae showed restraint when using this skill, but Tamamo Cat does not, as she has no self-restraint, self-respect or self-control. Only self-destruction.

WitchcraftEdit

Self-named Cat Witchcraft (キャット呪術, Kyatto Jujutsu?), related to the Dakini heavenly methods (ダキニ天法, Dakini ten-hō?). Originally she had mastered this powerful Magecraft, but she has forgotten almost everything due to taking this form.

  • Mantra: Little Sunshine (呪層・小日照, Jusō - Shōnisshō?)
  • Mantra: Feline Sunshine (呪層・猫日照, Jusō - Byōnisshō?)
  • Curse: Void Cleft Great Chaos Heaven (呪相・空裂大密天, Jusō - Kūretsu Dai Mitten?) recognized as Caster Tamamo's "final secret technique" and is rather surprising that Cat is able to use it
