Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
Better known as the Frankenstein's monster (フランケンシュタインの怪物, Furankenshutain no Kaibutsu ?). Based upon the artificial life created by Victor Frankenstein in Mary Shelley's novel "Frankenstein: or the Modern Prometheus". Victor sought to recreate the original couple described in the bible -- Adam and Eve. Due to the limitations of man, he first built Eve, intending for her to give birth to the counterpart. What started as a patchwork of lifeless flesh was given life by the energy harnessed from lightning. Unfortunately, what awoke was not the ideal woman that Victor envisioned, but an abomination with the mind of an infant. Having no developed capacity for expression, her sense of morality was completely absent. After presenting the entrails of a slain dog as a gift for the master, she was branded a failure and disassembled, before being abandoned completely.
Though still in pieces, she still lived, and over a period of time, was able to reconnect and repair herself. In her former master's absence, she came into contact with the outside world, and developed the emotions and feelings that could never be created in the first place. Thus she realized a great anger towards the one who abandoned her, but also admiration for the one who was effectively her father. She doggedly pursued the man until finding him in Geneva, Switzerland, where she made the following appeal:
« I never wanted to trouble you... but when you created me, you made me as only me. I am all alone, and it's painful... it's agonizing... it hurts. So, please, just one more. Please, create one more of me. If anyone can, it is you. Please... give me a mate. »
However, he flatly refused. Believing himself to have birthed of a hideous creature, it seemed unthinkable to even consider creating another. Though she pleaded, he denied her again and again, causing her to realize the truth and fall into deep despair. She decided that she must have him create another no matter what, so she killed those acquainted with him, those with no relation at all, and even his fiancee. He continued to flee from her despite that, denying her request to the end.
Getting tired of her persistent chase, Victor fled to the South Pole, choosing to die over granting her one wish. Dying in madness, he regretted her creation until his last breath. With the man she had looked up to gone and without anyone to hate, she parted from Walton, the man who watched over Frankenstein's final moment, and traveled to the uttermost north. She built herself a pyre, allowing herself to be consumed by the flames while thinking, "May my ashes be scattered across the seas..." That was the end of the monster born from the delusions of Frankenstein.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Frankenstein is a lovely young girl clad in a white dress with empty eyes, carrying a giant mace. Her eyes are normally covered by her long hair and only peek between the gaps. While Frankenstein is known for being a tall man over two meters tall, reminiscent of the portrayals of Boris Karloff and Robert de Niro, she resembles the Bride of Frankenstein at first glance. Due to her appearance, Caules is confused as to whether Victor Frankenstein had a twisted sense of beauty when looking upon her and calling her repulsive, or if she possesses an inconcealable foulness despite her external beauty.
She gives off the image of a large-breed dog that, despite never wagging her tail and always making a bored expression, desperately approaches people. Like how she always kept close to Caules when she walked behind him.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Mad Enhancement has robbed her of most of her linguistic ability, limiting her responses to head-shaking and grunts; the only time she was able to speak was when she was summoned and when she was trying to kill herself along with Saber of Red using her Blasted Tree. She can differentiate friend and foe, and she is able to communicate simple ideas. Due to a lack of skill in expression, and fearful of her own monstrous nature, she maintains a shy silence that conceals her high intelligence and empathetic capabilities, except for the emotion of sorrow. She prefers to remain in material form, and she sullenly moans when forced by Caules to remain in spiritual form. Rather than running wild, she prefers to pick flowers in the castle's courtyard garden or stare at the sky. She dislikes the overly-friendly Rider of Black, only rarely responding to his inquisitive attempts to speak with her out of annoyance. Extremely mindful of energy conservation, she will turn off the lights in the bathroom if her Master leaves them on after use and directly unplug the PC's power plug.
Her wish is to bring forth a mate that is the same kind of being as her. Beings like the homunculi of Yggdmillennia, although similar, are not good enough for her, showing lines that she refuses to cross in her own way. The reason why she seeks a pair is not an instinctive desire, but a logical reason because she seeks a way of being a proper human. If her master succeeds in making her open her heart, there is a possibility of the Master being chosen as the "bridegroom of Frankenstein".

Fate/Apocrypha[edit | edit source]
Beginning Stages of the War[edit | edit source]
Berserker is summoned by Caules Forvedge Yggdmillennia with Victor Frankenstein's plans for a "perfect human" as a catalyst. As the Servants' true names are to be shared, the inquisitive Rider of Black asks for her name, but she shakes her head. Thinking it is solely because she cannot speak, Rider asks the flustered Caules, and Berserker grumbles in displeasure as he speaks it. They leave together after the ritual is over, moaning in something close to an agreement. She remains angry at him for revealing her true name when even the Black Faction may later become their enemies in the Holy Grail War, and while she picks flowers in the garden, he apologies to her. She feels assured after knowing that her Master properly understands the Holy Grail War, and she agrees to simply focus on surviving. He asks her to correct the details of her legend in order to better understand her due to there being obvious discrepancies, and she bows her head earnestly at the request.
She does not interrupt his tale, either because Caules gets it correct or she does not care. She identifies her wish of a mate, taking offense by shoving a flower in his face when Caules suggests something like one of Yggdmillennia's homunculi. She nods for him to relate his wish to her, but he does not have one at the moment. Initially displeased by the answer, he explains his reasoning, and she grunts to show that she approves to some extent. As he begins to leave, she gives him a flower. As she begins to rip other flowers to shreds, Caules is reminded of the part of the legend where she was said to have thrown the farmer's daughter into the lake thinking she would float like the flower game they were playing, and hastily retreats.
Berserker is deployed along with Saber of Black to act as part of the plan to capture the rogue Berserker of Red. They encounter Rider of Red and Archer of Red as they act as Red Berserker's backup. As Archer retreats into the forest, Rider taunts the two, causing them to become angered at the insult to their pride. As Rider challenges them, they both charge at him. Despite having superior numbers, Saber and Berserker are unable to gain an advantage over Rider, who is capable of playing around with them, as they are unable to wound him due to his Noble Phantasm, Andreias Amarantos. Archer of Red also supports him, shooting arrows at Saber and Berserker. However, the battle is evened by Archer of Black, who himself supports Saber and Berserker and is able to wound Rider, due to possessing Divinity. Realizing that they are at a disadvantage, Archer and Rider retreat from the battle.
Battle At Castle Yggdmillennia[edit | edit source]
Berserker participates in the big battle between the Red Faction and Black Faction, rampaging across the battlefield and destroying the Dragon Tooth Warriors of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Berserker faces one of the Masters of Red, Shirou Kotomine, who is accompanied by Caster of Red, but is actually fighting himself. Shirou goes to ask Berserker to join the Red Faction, to replace their lost Berserker, but Berserker of Black refuses, attacking Shirou instead. Despite seemingly only being a human, Shirou is able to match Berserker. He, however, decides to eventually retreat, with Caster of Red using his Noble Phantasm, First Folio, to trap Berserker in an illusion of her past. Berserker though is released by her Master using a Command Spell, continuing to fight in the battle.
Berserker eventually faces Saber of Red, who is overpowering Rider of Black and the homunculus, Sieg. Despite her strength, Berserker is unable to match Saber, who is far stronger than her. Due to this, she decides to utilize her second Noble Phantasm,Blasted Tree, that allows her to release a massive attack at the cost of her own life. Despite knowing the cost, Caules painfully forces himself to allow his Servant to use this attack, even assisting her with Command Spells. Despite landing the attack on Saber, the Servant of Red survives, due to her own Master using a Command Spell to save her.
Despite his Servant dying, Caules continues to battle in the Great Holy Grail War, as an important part of the Black Faction. A part of Berserker also becomes attached to Sieg, granting him the Galvanism skill and his own version of Blasted Tree.
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Fourth Singularity: London[edit | edit source]
Frankenstein is a living person as a result of the distortions caused by the Singularity. She is kept in a coffin inside Victor Frankenstein's manor, which Mordred finds while investigating with Ritsuka and Mash. They bring her back to Henry Jekyll's apartment.
Jekyll inspects her to confirm she is indeed a living artificial human. She demands he apologize for touching her said inspection, as translated by Mordred. Jekyll apologizes for his actions, which she accepts according to Mash. Mordred tells her to stay when she and the others are sent out again.
When the others ponder how to find the Helter Skelters' remote controller, Frankenstein reveals she can do so by detecting traces of the magical energy that controls the robots. She leads Ritsuka, Mash, and Mordred to the House of Parliament. There they encounter a group of Helter Skelters commanded by a larger one. Mordred protects Frankenstein while Ritsuka and Mash deal with the robots. With the destruction of the large one, the other Helter Skelters suddenly showdown. Mash then takes pictures of the large Helter Skelter as requested by Romani. She notices the manufacturer’s name on it, which absent from the others, that reads “Charles Babbage, AD 1888”.
She leads the group again when the Helter Skelters are suddenly reactivated. Mordred soon suspects she’s misleading them this time. Frankenstein admits she doesn’t believe Charles Babbage is building the Helter Skelters to hurt others. Mordred convinces her to lead them to him, saying his actions now contradict her belief in his good nature. She leads them to Babbage, who reveals he is "B" of the Project Demonic Fog and a Servant that emerged from the fog. Mordred tells him to hear what Frankenstein has to say. Babbage prepares to surrender when he goes berserk against the group due to "M" using the Grail. Mordred tells Frankenstein that her words are useless, saying sometimes talks end in fights. After he is defeated, Babbage tells the group to head deep underground, where they’ll find the source of Demonic Fog: his Massive Steam Engine, powered by the Holy Grail, Angrboda. After Babbage disappears, the group return Frankenstein to Jekyll’s apartment before heading underground.
Jekyll later informs Frankenstein that the group have successfully resolved the Singularity. Therefore everything will return to its original state, including their memories. Frankenstein then tells Jekyll something that he claims to understand.
Final Singularity: Solomon[edit | edit source]

Summer Event: Death Jail Summer Escape[edit | edit source]
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Frankesntein is a relatively new mystery. As such, even with her parameters raised by Mad Enhancement, nothing about her particularly stands out, making her a suitable Servant for Caules, who possesses a low-aptitude as a Master. Her true worth instead lies in a unique, innate skill. As she is a Berserker meant to rage on the battlefield in madness without accepting orders and eventually fall, Darnic has little expectations of her in the battle plan of the Black Faction. He plans to use her to bring about massive destruction on the battlefield by having Caules use his Command Spells at the right time to strike up confusion in the Red Faction. Normally slow to respond in interpersonal interaction, she exhibits surprising agility and toughness in combat; in Berserk Mode, she executes commands with extreme faithfulness.
Skills[edit | edit source]
Class Skills[edit | edit source]
- Mad Enhancement (D Rank): Raises the Strength and Endurance parameters, but language ability becomes simple, and continuing complex thoughts becomes difficult. Frankenstein is a case of using this skill to strengthen a weaker Servant, however, considering her low specs, she is unlikely to become a significant threat.
Personal Skills[edit | edit source]
- Galvanism (B Rank): Unrestricted conversion and accumulation of Magical energy and bio-electricity. Attacks without substance such as, Magical light, Magical wind, Magical bullets, etc can be converted to electricity and discharged into the environment, nullified. Also, depending on the amount of stored electricity it can be put to use strengthening the body and rapidly repairing damage. She has the big advantage of efficiently replenishing her supply at an abnormally high rate, but since her mana supply is being taken care of by the homunculi in the Great Holy Grail War, that advantage is made useless.
- Wail of the Falsely Living (D Rank): A shrill shout that can’t be known when will end and that increases while on Mad Enhancement. It deprives enemies and allies without distinction of their ability to think, and those without the capacity to resist will panic and become unable to breathe.
- Overload (C Rank): An intentional boost up while being aware of suffering damage. In Frankenstein’s case, she converts the mana accumulated with Galvanism into more electricity than the maximum permissible level, and bounces the attack power of her Noble Phantasm up by outputting all of it. Since her body can’t bear it, she suffers damage.
Noble Phantasms[edit | edit source]
Her Noble Phantasms are Bridal Chest and Blasted Tree. Blasted Tree only reaches B rank by making a suicide attack, while the rest of the time its destructive power is at best C~D rank. Most likely, she would be incapable of winning in either a normal Holy Grail War or the Great Holy Grail War unless she had great luck and her Master had excellent judgment.
Forms and Alternate Versions[edit | edit source]
Swimsuit[edit | edit source]
The arrival of the summer season!! "Hot! Sluggish! Lazy!" The bad with summer cyborg, Fran-chan, changes into a swimsuit to keep cool, and enters the race! Her partners are a suspicious old man of around-fifty and the trans-morphed Giant Robo-Babbage. It's like the Great Blockbuster Film of Summer!
Old man of around-fifty: "Our Fran is the number one cutest in the world!"
Saber Fran, made into a sluggard because of the summer heat. But when the moment comes where she starts to easily go berserk, hahaha, whichever it is, it's truly a problematic matter, hahaha, her image is like a "languid, large dog affected by the summer heat", and so the old man of around-fifty supports her rampage. Only Professor Babbage is reliable! Steam, Electricity, Evil Schemes; with these three combined, this team has no weaknesses! I think! Also, because her Saint Graph has been tampered with, she has somehow become a Saber.
Because it's summer, even the normally diligent Fran-chan shows the Master her laa-zy side. Occupying the Master's bed, and idling listlessly while indulging in the air-conditioning. The kind of level where you'd upload a photo on social media with the caption of When your pet doesn't want to move away from your bed, what should I do?, while grinding your teeth in frustration as you watch over the innocent Servant who wickedly wants to occupy your bed.
Development[edit | edit source]
Creation and Conception[edit | edit source]
The description for her original design in Fate/complete material IV differentiates in that she was rejected by her creator when she professed a love for him. Fearful of her interests, her creator dismembered her and escaped to his birthplace in an Alpine village outside Geneva. Reassembling herself and tracking him on instinct, she began to recognize over time that though she was kind in nature, she was also an existence of cursed monstrosity. The understanding of the reasoning behind her creator's rejection drove her to anger and despair, and she took the lives of his family members, pursuing him across Europe in the aftermath. Her creator eventually underwent a mental breakdown and took his own life. At the loss of the subject of her love, hopes, and hatred, the automaton drowned herself in the icy waters of the Arctic.

■ Bridal Chest: Maiden's Chastity
Type: Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm
Maximum Targets: 1 person
A mace, war hammer, that discharges electricity that looks like the branches of a tree. The orb on the tip is her very heart itself. When out of battle it's always on her. The fin of the tail and the fin on the side of her head supply electrical energy. She can recycle the magical energy lost to her surroundings with high efficiency, and in environments with surplus magical energy like in the midst of combat by using Galvanism at the same time to imitate a Second Type Perpetual Motion Machine.
■ Blasted Tree: Thunder Tree of Crucifixion
Type: Anti Army Noble Phantasm
Maximum Amount of Targets: 30 people
Maiden's Chastity pierces the ground and the entire limiter is released discharging all the electricity.
A towering silhouette of a large tree rains down, scattering homing thunder. With a single enemy and short distance away, it can be activated without Maiden's Chastity.
Because of the limiter, releasing it means the power is tremendous.
However in this case the user will come to a complete stop. In other words "death." It is possible for this lightning attack to give birth to a second Frankenstein's Monster though her death means she cannot see the results of her actions.

The artificial life form created by Victor Frankenstein. Built as the Eve that forms a pair with Adam, because her expressing of human emotions does not function well, she was branded a failed work.
Level 1 Bond
Source: Literary work
Region: All of Europe
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral Gender: Female
If it is for the sake of conserving energy, you can directly unplug the PC's power plug.
Level 2 Bond
There is quite a disparity between this Frankenstein and what was depicted in the novel; from the very beginning Victor aimed at creating Adam and Eve-- the original couple. In contrary to the Bible, he first created Eve and then thought of having Eve give birth to Adam.
Level 3 Bond
Yet, the starting point that should have been Eve - an artificial life form built by tying together dead bodies - was a failed work. The suppressing, connection of emotions did not work well, and before the brutality of slaughtering a stray dog without hesitation and presenting its entrails as a gift, Victor became frightened and fled.
Level 4 Bond
However, after being left behind, Frankenstein's intellect and emotions kept being polished as she got in contact with the world, until finally reaching the point where she felt anger towards Victor for abandoning her. Getting tired of her persistently chasing him all the way to the South Pole, Victor chose his own death.
Level 5 Bond
The reason why she seeks a pair is not an instinctive desire, but a logical-- in other words, because she seeks a way of being of as a proper human. If he succeeds in making her open her heart, there is a possibility of the Master being chosen as the "bridegroom of Frankenstein".
"Lightning Tree of Cruxifixion"
Rank: D~B Type: Anti-Army
A full power electrical discharge of suicide bombing resolution, performed by lifting all limiters from "Maiden's Chastity". After use, there are a small possibility of giving birth to a second monster of Frankenstein.

An artificial lifeform created by the researcher Frankenstein; she was rejected by her creator when she professed a love for him. Fearful of her interests, her creator dismembered her and escaped to his birthplace in an Alpine village outside Geneva. Reassembling herself and tracking him on instinct, she began to recognize over time that though she was kind in nature, she was also an existence of cursed monstrosity.

- STR: C
- CON: B
- AGI: D
- MGI: D
- LCK: B
- Noble Phantasm: C
- Scream of the False Lifeform (Scream of Terror)
The Servant is capable of emitting an immense scream, temporarily robbing enemies and allies alike of their ability to think and respond; those who do not expect it or are incapable of the mental resilience to withstand it may temporarily lose their ability to breathe. The effectiveness of the skill is increased with activation of Mad Enhancement. Incidentally, in Berserk Mode, the Servant expresses approval with the phrase "Yaaa," and disapproval with the phrase "Uiii," but it is impossible to discern anything but madness.
Unrestricted conversion and accumulation of magical energy and bio-electric energy. Thaumaturgical attacks involving no material existence -- wind manipulation, energy bullets, beam attacks -- are converted to electricity and rendered without effect, discharged into the environment. Absorbed electricity may be used to implement rapid self-repair and physical attribute reinforcement. Like Phlogiston and Ether, the concept of Galvinism, which explains organic activity as a bio-electric process, falls under the domain of Alchemy.
- Bridal Chest: A Maiden's Chastity Strength: Medium
A large mace used by the Servant as a striking weapon, which gives off discharges electricity with the appearance of tree branches. In reality, the Servant's reactor core / heart is contained within the large spherical bulb, and the fin on the opposite end remotely transfers energy to the Servant's main body. With high efficiency, the implement continuously gathers energy wasted by the Servant or present in her surroundings, and is constantly manifested outside of combat to power her. If exposed to a high-magical energy environment -- for example, in the midst of combat -- the function of Galvinism and the Bridal Chest combine to qualify the Noble Phantasm as a "Type II Perpetual Motion Engine."
- Blasted Tree: The Lightning Tree of Crucifixion Strength: Large
Use of the Bridal Chest in a suicide move -- the fin of the mace is planted into the ground, and the reactor's limiters are completely released, discharging all gathered electricity into the surrounding environment as an area of effect attack with target homing; momentarily giving the Noble Phantasm in the silhouette of a towering tree. May be implemented from the Servant's own body rather than the Bridal Chest if the enemy force is a single opponent within short range. Use of this technique results in permanent deactivation, but there is a low probability that a second Frankenstein's Monster will be materialized in the wake of the attack. However, in death, it would be impossible for the Servant to witness the results of her actions.

 Fate/Apocrypha material - Encyclopedia: Berserker of “Black” [Servant], p.163 [T]
Berserker of “Red” [Servant]
One of the Servants of the Black camp. Her true name is Frankenstein. Her source, it goes without saying, is Mary Shelly’s novel “Frankenstein: or the Modern Prometheus”.
She is a girl clad in a wedding-dress-like outfit. I think it’s very natural for people to point out “But Frankenstein was male in the novel!”, but her true role is to give birth to Adam… a male artificial human.
She is an artificial human—a homunculus made by Victor Frankenstein, a genius scientist and alchemist, using the power of lightning.
Perhaps due to being summoned by Caules, whose abilities were inferior compared to the rest of the Black camp, she isn’t that powerful as a Servant even with the Mad Enhancement of a Berserker.
Due to her unique skill “Galvanism”, she has the big advantage of efficiently replenishing her prana supply at an abnormally high rate, but since her prana supply is being taken care of by the homunculi in this war, that advantage is made useless. Her Noble Phantasm also only reaches B rank by making a suicide attack, while the rest of the time its destructive power is at best C~D rank. Most likely, she would be incapable of winning in either a normal Holy Grail War or the Great Holy Grail War unless she had great luck and her Master had excellent judgement.
Excluding Siegfried, she is the first Servant to leave the stage. Even her last act of unleashing her Noble Phantasm with the remainder of her power mustered forth should have ended up being meaningless, but—
Those who have read the final volume will know what happened regarding her afterwards. The Noble Phantasm she used bounced over to a new owner, saved the world, and brought Caules and the others victory.
She gives off the image of a large-breed dog that, despite never wagging her tail and always making a bored expression, desperately approaches people. Like how she always kept close to Caules when she walked behind him.
Due to having been rebuked for her lack of emotion, she tries to be sensitive of people’s feelings. When she noticed that Caules was painfully forcing himself to speak coldly as he used his final Command Spell, Frankenstein realized the seemingly miraculous fact that “someone would feel sorrow over her death”. That was, without a doubt, the first precious and beautiful experience in her entire life.
There is an extremely low possibility of a second Frankenstein being born due to her Noble Phantasm “Blasted Tree: Lightning Branch of Crucifixion”.
She drew out that possibility with her strong will.
Thought this is a digression, I think Fran-chan in “Capsule Servant” looks super cute as her head rolls off when she is defeated, but what do you think?
