Faker's True Name is Iskandar's Shadow (イスカンダルの影武者?). She was the younger twin sister of Hephaestion, one of the generals serving under Alexander the Great. She was taught from a young age by Olympias, Iskandar's mother, to act as a body-double and confidant to Iskandar, and also acted for her brother at times. For this purpose, she was never given a name, and borrowed her brother's when needed. Combined with spreading rumors of Iskandar's appearance as based on her own, so distinctly different from his, she was the ideal vessel to receive any curses directed towards Iskandar.
Not accepting these near inhumane circumstances, Iskandar attempted numerous times to give her a proper name and identity, all of which she vehemently refused due to her loyalty to him and her desire to continue serving him as his "Shadow".
Faker wears an outfit extremely similar to that of Alexander as a child. She has heterochomatic eyes, with one appearing to be a very pale grey with a slight goldish tint, while the other is blue. When Faker uses her Mystic Eyes, both eyes glow orange.
Faker appears as a haughty young woman, citing herself as the primary confidant of Iskandar, and bears a dislike for Lord El-Melloi II. She grows angered when he refers to himself as Iskandar's subject, claiming to be disgusted because he has no qualifications to be so. She considers him to be similar to Eumenes.
Despite her loyalty, she resents Iskandar for never letting go of his dream to see Okeanos, believing he knew it was not real but still desired to seek it out. This eventually caused her to harbor a certain level of contempt for his army and her fellow subjects who unquestionably followed his dream, despite the revelation of the truth that there was no sea at the end of the world, thus explaining her absence in Iskandar's Ionioi Hetairoi.
After Gray absorbs some of her mana, she becomes impressed enough to show off her Mystic Eyes of Compulsion. At the same time, her warrior's pride compels her to rescue Gray from an avalanche, stating that "Warriors should die on the battlefield."

AbilitiesEditFaker possesses Mystic Eyes of Compulsion, which give her the ability to forcibly take control of her target's body against their will and can even compel them to speak the truth. It causes the victim physical and mental strain as they are still conscious of their actions.
Faker has also displayed a level of skill in using magecraft and spellcraft, as seen in her attempts to use several offensive spells against Gray. Her mana takes the color of vibrant red.
She possesses Hecatic Wheel, similar to Alexander's Gordius Wheel, drawn by two skeleton Wyverns rather than Divine Bulls; she is similarly associated with red lightning as opposed to Iskandar's blue. Her main armament is a short sword akin to Iskandar's spatha, but with two horns curving off the hilt, and she shows the strength and skill to overpower Gray.
Faker's Class Skills are Independent Action Rank B and Disguising Rank B, which causes enemies to see fake values for her Class and parameters. Her Personal Skills are High-Speed Divine Words Rank B; For He Is Another Iskandar (False) Rank B, which gives her Iskandar's Skills and Noble Phantasm but at a lower rank than his and with some variations; and Blessing of the Nameless Rank EX, which directs magical and curse damage targeted at her Master toward her instead, and if Faker is prepared ahead of time also reduces the damage taken.
