Illyasviel von Einzbern  (イリヤスフィール・フォン・アインツベルン, Iriyasufīru fon Aintsuberun?), often referred to as Illya[Note 2] (イリヤ, Iriya?), is the Master of Berserker in the Fifth Holy Grail War of Fate/stay night. She is the daughter of Kiritsugu Emiya and Irisviel von Einzbern, both whom participated in the Fourth Holy Grail War, and the adoptive older sister of Shirou Emiya.



Illya playing with Kiritsugu for the last time before the Grail War

Einzbern, one of three families of Magi involved in the Holy Grail War, were responsible for creation of the vessel into which the souls of the defeated Servants would go. As such, Illya was prepared by her family to act as a living vessel for the Grail.

Unlike other homunculi who are born without eggs and wombs, Illyasviel originally was developed in her mother's womb from a fertilized egg to an embryo through the same process as ordinary people do.[6] In the Fate/Zero Drama CD, she was born out of love between Kiritsugu and Irisviel, to be Kiritsugu's reason for living when he comes back from the war.[7] The head of the family Jubstacheit von Einzbern, however, anticipated the possibility that Kiritsugu and Irisviel would fail to win the Fourth Holy Grail War, so he allowed Illyasviel to be born with modifications to allow her to become the Holy Grail should a Fifth Holy Grail War occur.[8] The modifying made her growth slow down abnormally and resulted in her childlike appearance while she is actually slightly older than Shirou. Irisviel was gifted a working womb so she gave natural birth to Illya.

Before the Fifth Grail War[]

Illya and Berserker right after killing a pack of wolves

Since the Fourth Holy Grail War ended, the Einzberns had locked her up in a cold room saying that going outside was bad for her body.

5 years later, when her father died, in the Einzbern homunculi's shared inner world, a discarded homunculus told her his death and the existence of his newly-adopted son, Shirou and provoked hatred and resentment for them (in the anime, Angra Mainyu, taking the form of her deceased mother, did so in Illya's room.)[9]

Two months before the Fifth Holy Grail war, Illya summoned Heracles with a slab of rock from a temple as a catalyst. The Einzberns cheated by gathering materials from the Greater Grail which allowed Illya to successfully summon a Servant a full 2 months in advance. Even old man Acht was surprised by this result.[10] To keep him within this world, her Magic Circuits generates Magical Energy draining her life away and caused her such great pain that she could nothing but let out screams and insults to her Servant. Before long, the Einzberns gave Illya and her Servant trainings in a forest where they were attacked by wolves, possessed corpses and failure homunculi and Illya could not help but let her Servant eliminate them all, moaning in pain. Once having become used to having control of him, Illya took her Servant's sanity away using his Skill, Mad Enhancement to take her revenge for her suffering so far. All the same, Berserker was the only person she spoke and the two bonded together.


Much like the other Einzbern homunculi, Illyasviel has pale skin, crimson eyes, and long white hair. Similar to her mother, Irisviel, Illya also bears a genetic resemblance to her ancestor, Justeaze Lizrich von Einzbern, who was responsible for the formation of the core of the Holy Grail. She wears a collared, purple long-sleeved shirt with a light purple scarf to match, a long white skirt and purple boots.

Though Illya was born through natural means, her body has been heavily modified before and after her birth to maximize the Magic Circuits in her body, making her the ultimate homunculus and a refined vessel for the Holy Grail. As a result of the modifications to her body, her physical body develops slowly and her father, Kiritsugu Emiya, correctly assesses that her physical body will not develop secondary sexual characteristics. By the time she is eight years old, Kiritsugu notes that his Walther rifle is heavier than Illya is.[11] A decade later, when Illya meets Shirou Emiya, she still looks as though she's a young girl rather than a young woman.


Illya is cheerful and outgoing, upbeat and generally exhibits a positive attitude. Possessing a friendly demeanor, she is easy to talk to and tends to be playful and mischievous. Deep inside, however, Illya is lonely as she has no friends her own age to play with and is often stuck inside the Einzbern castle. She asks those she feels comfortable around to call her "Illya".

Illya's personal interest in Shirou is conflicted due to the fact that Kiritsugu, whom she loved for he was her father, remained in Japan as Shirou's adoptive father after betraying her family by destroying the long-sought Grail. She feels that Kiritsugu abandoned her for Shirou, and is jealous of Shirou for that. When she first meets Shirou, she considers him as something of an older brother. Though he is distrustful of her at first, he comes to like Illya, seeing her as a little sister. However at the same time, she also feels very close to Shirou for his relationship with Kiritsugu. As such, she becomes very affectionate and clingy towards him (like a younger sibling would) when Berserker is defeated, much to Saber and Rin's annoyance.

While her personality got more unstable and cold-blooded due to the Einzberns' inhuman treatment of her, she keeps the kindness inherited from her parents deep down in her heart.



Illya in the Fate/Zero anime

« Found one! I found one too! »

(Illya searching for walnuts with Kiritsugu - Fate/Zero, Episode 1)

She has a minor role in Fate/Zero, she first appeared in the beginning when she was born. As she grows up, she was very fond of her father which surprises Saber as Saber thought Kiritsugu was a cold person. Kiritsugu while carrying her feels sad about her abnormally slow growth. Before he leaves for the war, Kiritsugu promises to return to Illya, who promises to wait until he returns.

Illya does not remain far from Kiritsugu and Irisviel's thoughts during the war. During a brief moment of respite, Kiritsugu expresses his despair to his wife and his desire to take their daughter and flee. However, Irisviel assures him that he must continue. During the final days of the war, Irisviel's consciousness is consumed by the Grail, Irisviel requests Kiritsugu bring Illya to Japan and to make their daughter happy. However, as Irisviel becomes the Grail, she witnesses a vision of Illya fearing her own fate of becoming the Grail one day. Kiritsugu's own vision in the Grail eventually shows him destroying everyone he wants to protect, including all his loved ones, until he is finally forced to murder Illya.

Though Kiritsugu survives the Fourth Grail War, his choice to destroy the Grail rather than realize the Third Magic is perceived as a betrayal by the Einzbern. He makes multiple attempts to retrieve Illya, but he is prevented from succeeding by Jubstacheit refusing to open the bounded barrier around the Einzbern castle. With his deteriorating body, he could not find the entrance of the bounded field and he died regretting the thought of not being able to save her. Illya never knew that her father had repeatedly tried to save her and she was groomed to despise Kiritsugu for his betrayal.

Fate/stay night[]

Illya in the Unlimited Blade Works anime

Illya travels to Japan to participate in the Fifth Holy Grail War as the master of Berserker. During the initial stages of the war, she lives in the Einzbern Castle on the outskirts of Fuyuki City, accompanied only by her Servant and two maids Leysritt and Sella.[12]

The reason Saber never mentioned Illya in the Fifth Holy Grail War was that she had never asked Irisviel about her daughter’s name, and Illya’s appearance seemed physically too young for her to be Irisviel’s daughter. So, she viewed Illya as an Einzbern homunculus completely unrelated to Irisviel.[13]


Illya in the Fate/stay night anime

« This is your last chance, Onii-chan. I'll ask you one more time. Shirou...be mine. »

(Illya wanting Shirou to stay with her - Fate, Day 11)

In the Fate route, Illya initially appears as an enemy to Shirou Emiya. Unbeknownst to Shirou, his adopted father had been the Master for the previous War, representing the Einzbern family. Kiritsugu's decision to destroy the Holy Grail had been regarded as a betrayal and is the apparent reason for why Illya has decided to specifically target Shirou. When Saber is weakened after her fight against Rider, Shirou is captured by Illya, who gives him the proposition to become her servant, which he refuses. Frustrated with his response, she orders Berserker to attack Rin, Saber and Archer, who had come to save Shirou.

Archer sacrifices himself in order to allow Rin, Saber, and Shirou to escape, by staying behind to fight Berserker despite knowing he is outmatched. He manages to take six of Berserker's twelve lives (five in the anime) before he is ultimately defeated. Even after putting his Soul in her Vessel, Illya can not identify his true name. In order to replenish Saber's mana, Shirou gives a part of his magical circuit to her in Réalta Nua and they go fight against Illya and Berserker. Berserker is defeated by Saber and Shirou after the latter traces Caliburn, Saber's original sword. Without the protection of her Servant, Illya joins Shirou's household.

After Gilgamesh kills Caster, Illya shoots a magical bullet at him out of her confusion of the existence of a eighth Servant and her attack is reflected by him easily and is nullified by Rin. Illya soon collapses after taking in Caster's soul. She is later kidnapped by Kirei Kotomine when he invades the Emiya Residence to use her to summon the Holy Grail. After Kirei's death, She is freed from the Grail before it is destroyed by Shirou and Saber. Two months later, Illya becomes good friends with Sakura, and lives at Fujimura residence.

She lives peacefully with Shirou and winds up being placed under the guardianship of Taiga. Notably, she is somewhat attached to Shirou, and believing Taiga to be an annoyance, she is often at odds with her.

Unlimited Blade Works[]

Illya's death in Unlimited Blade Works

« Where are you? I don't know, it's so dark, Berserker... »

(Illya calling for Berserker in her last moments - Unlimited Blade Works, Day 13)

In the Unlimited Blade Works route, she has a lesser role. She introduces herself as a Master to Shirou and Rin, but since the most dangerous servant in the route is Caster, she doesn't attack them. In order to defeat Caster, Shirou and Rin decide to form an alliance with Illya. However, they arrive too late at her castle and Illya is defeated and killed by Gilgamesh after the latter rips her heart out of her body. Shirou and Rin later bury Illya outside the mansion. Later Kirei intends to have Rin become the vessel of the Holy Grail by implanting Illya's heart into her but is killed by Lancer to prevent this, prompting Gilgamesh to use Shinji as the Grail's vessel instead.

Heaven's Feel[]

« You said an older brother protects his younger sister, right?...Yeah. I'm the older sister. So I have to protect my younger brother. »

(Illya to Shirou before closing the Gates of Heaven - Heaven's Feel, Day 16)

Until the third day of the Heaven's Feel route, Illya takes the same actions as she does in the Fate route. On the fifth day, two days earlier than in the Fate route, Illya finds Shirou in the shopping district and gets surprised almost in tears by him calling her by her nickname. After that, they go to the park where Illya is asked by him whether she knows Kiritsugu and answers stiffly that she does not. On the next day, she transferred Shirou's senses to the Einzberns' forest temporarily so that he can see the castle she lives in. In the event, Shirou hears Sella and Leysritt talking about the Dress of Heaven.[14]

Illya is later attacked by Zouken Matou and Berserker is defeated by Saber Alter and corrupted into becoming one of Sakura Matou's Servants. When Archer disappears right in front of her and his Soul goes into her Vessel, she finds out the relationship between him and Shirou probably because she had handled Shirou's senses spiritually on the sixth day.

Once Berserker is destroyed, Illya reveals the truth regarding Heaven's Feel, the Holy Grail, and Angra Mainyu, the corruption in the Grail.[15][16] Together with Rin, they work together to replicate the Jeweled Sword of Zelretch, which Rin intends to wield against Sakura, who has become a second vessel for the corrupted contents of the Grail. Illya remains behind while Shirou and Rin confront Sakura, extracting a promise that they will return alive.

If the affection score for her is high enough, it results in Sakura's True Ending (if the affection score is low, it results in the Normal End in which she does not appear at all). During Shirou's battle with Saber Alter, Illya locates the Dress of Heaven. Realizing that if Shirou manages to defeat and retrieve Sakura by alone, it would lead him to his death, Illya decides to utilize the Dress of Heaven and her live to protect Shirou. Illya wearing the Dress of Heaven appears in front of Zouken Matou and asks him why he must keep himself alive. Meanwhile, Shirou cancelled the connection between Sakura and Angra Mainyu, so she starts retrieving the defeated Servants' souls. And she stops Shirou who is about to sacrifice himself to destroy the Greater Grail. Illya reveals to Shirou that she is his older sister and tells him that her duty is to protect him because of it. Using the Dress of Heaven, she materializes his soul incompletely[17] and gives him a portion of her body as his soul's temporary container.[18] Then she closes Gates of Heaven as a Grail. In the movie adaptation, after entering the Grail Illya sees someone in the distance and runs into the waiting arms of her mother, Irisviel, the two finally reunited.


In the manga version of Fate/stay night (which follows the Fate and Unlimited Blade Works scenarios), the events involving her character follow the Fate route. After kidnapping Shirou, losing Berserker and ultimately being defeated by Shirou and Saber, she ends up living happily at Shirou's house.

Fate/hollow ataraxia[]

Illya in Fate/Hollow Ataraxia

Illya plays a small role throughout the four day loop. She tends to show up wherever she pleases, but usually seeks out Shirou to do things.[19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28] On the third day of one of the loops, Shirou attempts to visit the Einzbern Castle in the woods, but is stopped by Illya and Berserker. In a future loop after that encounter, she sets up a "castle siege" utilizing her Servant and Homunculi maids to make reaching her castle a "grand experience". After conquering the "siege", Shirou is able to visit the manor without issue in subsequent loops. Illya talks to Shirou about her history with Kiritsugu and Irisviel before the Fourth Grail War.[29] During the assault of the dog-shadows, Illya and Berserker are also involved in the fight to exterminate them, much like the other Servants.[30]

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA[]

Main article: Illyasviel von Einzbern (Fate/kaleid)Illya is the main character of the Magical Girl spin-off, Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA.

Carnival Phantasm[]

Illya has a number of small roles in Carnival Phantasm, often as a commentator in the parody versions of the Holy Grail War with Kirei Kotomine. She is usually seen alongside Berserker.

Today's Menu for Emiya Family[]

In the universe of Today's Menu for Emiya Family, certain characters from the Fifth Holy Grail War of Fate/stay night, including Illya, are living a calm and peaceful daily life in Fuyuki City. Following the first episode of the anime adaptation, Shirou and Saber went shopping. After heading home, they ended up finding Illya and Taiga appreciating the Kotatsu in the Emiya Residence. Shirou then decides to cook Toshikoshi Soba for everyone.[31]

Later on, Illya makes an appearance in Episode 3, which is centered around Hinamatsuri, or Girl's Day. A confused Illya is dressed in a kimono and taken to Shirou's house where Shirou and his friends are prepared to celebrate the day with her. The whole party was devised by Taiga.[32]

Illya appears again near the end of Episode 6, visiting Shirou and surprised to find he is cooking hamburgers. The Episode had centered around the first time Shirou had cooked hamburgers for their father, Kiritsugu.[33]

Illya appears in a Christmas episode in which she invites Shirou, Saber, Rider, Rin and Sakura to her mansion to eat the meal cooked by her servants.[34]

Illya appears lastly watching Berserker make a snowman.

Other appearances[]

In the Apocrypha universe, Kiritsugu won’t end up becoming involved with the Einzberns, so Illyasviel will never be born.[35] She appears as Pseudo-Servant Sitonai in the Norse Lostbelt of Fate/Grand Order.


Illya's Command Spell.

Illya has unsurpassed potential as a Master amongst all Masters past and present.[36] 70% of her body is composed of Magic Circuits[37] which are also her Command Spell that show themselves as a red pattern all over her body when she generates magical energy.[38] The power of her Command Spell is strong enough to control Berserker who can disobey normal Command Spells.[39] Illya has an unlimited supply of mana, thus allowing her to control Berserker without too much difficulty. Still, she suppresses the rank of Mad Enhancements to make it easy to control him when out of combat.[40]

As a Magus, she is a top mage in Fuyuki, if it's at the land that houses the Greater Grail.[41][42] Still, first-class mages would follow the "since she's a child of nature, just cut her off from the land first" plan, so it's not like she's invincible. Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald and Tokiomi Tohsaka may be able to best her in a magic duel. It is said that she is skilled in combat.[42]

In the anime adaptation, similar to the wire construct wielded by her mother, she is able to make a familiar from her hair. The name of the technique is Engel Rid: Angel's Poem (天使の詩(エルゲンリート), Tenshi no uta(Erugenrīto)?). The bird's name is Storch Ritter: Knight of Stork (コウノトリの騎士(シュトルヒリッター), Kōnotori no kishi(Shutoruhirittā)?). The Ibis that shoots bullets is Zähre (ツェーレ, Twēre?, German for "tears"), and she can also transform them into a Degen (デーゲン, Dēgen?, German for "épée").[41] They are autonomous beings that defend her and pursue targets automatically, strong enough to defend against Rin's Gandr shots, fast enough to dodge them, and shown to be able to fire small blasts of magical energy capable of easily shooting through them. They each generate a considerable amount of magical energy, and Rin compares each to a "miniature magus." She can easily create up to four without any issue, and she can change their shape into swords.[43]

Illya's crystal ball.

Other spells Illya uses include one that can gives her pseudo-invisibility, making people unconsciously divert their eyes from her.[14][21] Thanks to the Einzberns specializing in "flow and transfer of power", she can also use Transference of Consciousness (意識の転移, Ishiki no Ten'i?), which sends one's consciousness into objects,[14][44][45] regardless of distance.[14] The success rate of transferring someone's consciousness is usually low and connecting to things is harder.[14] Illya is also able to acquire Mystic Eyes of Binding through the use of magecraft. It binds her target by sending her Magical Energy into their body, invading their nerves. Because they are artificial, they are not powerful enough to keep Shirou with his activated Magic Circuits from struggling himself free.[46] The anime also adds her having a crystal ball to scry people from afar.[47]

In contrast to her strength as a Magus, she lacks the ability to sprint[48] and must spend half a day sleeping (actually abeyance) everyday.[49] Due to Einzberns' harsh body modifying, her lifespan shortened to less than a year.[50]

Illya also possesses miscellaneous non-magical skills. For example, despite her small size, she knows how to drive.[26] According to her, because she is a LoreleiWP, she learned swimming from water itself and is unnaturally good at it.[51]

Vessel of the Grail[]

Having a Vessel of the Grail as her heart, she has a function to collect Servants's souls. Once having more than four souls in her body,[12] she has to divert energy from moving her limbs, breathing and keeping her personality to managing the souls.[52] Unlike her mother who is designed to self-destruct in the end, she makes not only her heart but her whole body work as the Vessel by covered with additional Magic Circuits, that is, the Dress of Heaven at the final stage.[6]

The garment allows for the materialization of the soul and is the pinnacle of the Third Magic the Einzbern family seeks to recover through the Holy Grail Wars. She dons the Dress of Heaven during the Heaven's Feel scenario, albeit in an incomplete form of the Third Magic, to assist Shirou in completing their father's mission to stop Angra Mainyu and obliterate the Holy Grail.


Creation and Conception[]

Originally Illya was planned to be one of the heroines, however if that were made then the release date of Fate/stay night would be delayed by another half a year.[36] Her route would have been part of Sakura story. Rather than only choosing to become Sakura's hero or fulfill his ideals as an Ally of Justice on the ninth day of Heaven's Feel, Shirou would have also had an option to become Illya's hero instead. However, due to the length, they thought to release Saber and Rin as Fate/stay night and Sakura and Illya in a separate release titled "Fate/other night", but they thought it would have been too expensive. Illya's route was instead combined with Heaven's Feel because they decided to include Sakura's route in Fate/stay night.

Nasu Kinoko jokingly commented that the Illya route is the "Prisma☆Illya" because Hiroshi Hiroyama was able to finish what he couldn't do.[53]



  1. Hiroshi Hiroyama, author of Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA, tweeted on January 31, 2011 that Illya's birthday is November 20th.[2] On January 25, 2014, he tweeted a correction that it was his misunderstanding and that her official birthday is unrevealed.[3]
  2. Illyasviel's nickname has also been romanized as "Ilya"[5]

    Nasu Kinoko & Takeuchi Takashi Discussion

    >The catalyst for Illya's birth

    Nasu: Illya came about when Takeuchi said he wanted to "do old Fate". When we sat down to talk about it, he said he wanted Berserker's Master to be a Lolita-type girl. The "Lolita beauty and the beast", he called it.

    Takeuchi: It's such a great combo for a bishojo game.

    Nasu: The pairing was definitely great for a bishojo game, so after some discussion, we decided to give it a try and designed Illya to be a Lolita character.

    Takeuchi: The concept of a little girl accompanied by a giant guardian also has a typical mainstream appeal as well.

    Nasu: So that conversation was how Illya came about.

    Takeuchi: Illya's concept didn't change much from the initial design.

    Nasu: I personally liked our first draft of Illya the best, I believe we realised her image while looking at these pieces of early concept art. (Said while indicating the drafts in "Fate/side material")

    Takeuchi: She still had a touch of the "big sis" flavour to her at that stage.

    Nasu: Yeah, we made her seem a bit younger for the final version.

    >Regarding Illya's character design

    Takeuchi: Illya was wearing black stockings in her original draft, but when we chose black stockings to be part of Saber's casual outfit, we changed Illya's look.

    Nasu: A surprising number of people thought Saber was wearing knee socks.

    Takeuchi: They're proper pantyhose. You can see them quite clearly in one of the event illustrations.

    Nasu: Do you recall the "Fate" fighting game? Saber was initially wearing knee socks in that game, but when Takeuchi saw that, he burst into a rage and declared that Saber should be wearing pantyhose, not knee socks. Needless to say, I wasn't particularly surprised that he'd point out a problem in Saber's outfit before making any comments about the actual gameplay or sprite motions. (laughs)

    Takeuchi: Anyway, we decided to leave Illya barefooted due to this stocking conflict, and I think that was the right way to go because it made her seem that much more childlike. The other main concern regarding her character design was that we wanted her to have a certain air of elegance. A lot of people have told me that Illya is one of the more difficult characters to draw, and I chalk that up to the little detailed we used to make her more unique. These details include things like the gap in her bangs just above her right eye and the face that I used solid lines around her pupils. I added these details because they helped make Illya stand out from the crowd and have the impression that she was different from normal people.

    >Illya's feelings about arriving in Kiritsugu's hometown

    Nasu: She was excited, to be sure... but whether that excitement had to do with her arriving in a place that she had built up in her mind or the fact that her vengeance was finally at hand, even she did not know. I imagine it was something akin to the way a boxer feels when he is going up against a champion that he has always adored and respected, yet knows he must defeat. All she knows is that the feelings are strong and undeniable, yet their true source remains a mystery.

    Takeuchi: By the way, is the head of the Einzbern family (Old Man Acht) still alive?

    Nasu: I reckon he is, yes. He's basically a living fossil.

    >Explaining Illya

    Nasu: In terms of her character, Illya straddles the line between the "big sister" and "little sister" roles. Her words and actions tend to come off as childish, but sometimes she scolds Shirou like a big sister might. We were really careful not to reveal the fact that Illya is technically Shirou's older sister until the very end.

    Takeuchi: Playing through the game again after finding out about the familial relationship between Shirou and Illya makes some scenes more interesting because you notice the "big sis" moments that we snuck in there.

    Nasu: I also hope that everyone got the fact that snow is supposed to be Illya's theme or symbol.

    Takeuchi: We had designed Illya to be a heroine to some degree, so I guess you could say she started off with some wifely attributes, but those kind of faded away as her character evolved. Looking back on it now, however, I think it was better for Illya's character that way.

    Nasu: Yeah, Illya's not really the wife type... she's more of a daughter if anything. The love you feel for her is the kind that makes you want to protect her.

    Takeuchi: If the three heroines were to be Shirou's wives, Illya would definitely be his little sister. She would be the most cherished little sister ever, no doubt. It's mentioned in the game that Illya doesn't get to have a normal lifespan, and I found a dojinshi that delved into that aspect of the story. In my opinion, the way Illya was portrayed in that dojinshi is probably her most accurate portrayal to date.

    Nasu: Speaking of dojin work... Whose call was it to put Illya in bloomer shorts for the Tiger Dojo?

    Takeuchi: The bonus Type-Moon booklet that Tech Gian released featured all three heroines on the cover wearing bloomer shorts. When I asked the editor in charge what we should do with the back cover, they told me there was only one thing to do... Illya in bloomer shorts. The "stay night" story didn't really offer any opportunities to dress her in bloomer shorts, so I wasn't too sure about it... (laughs)

    Nasu: But you were pleasantly surprised by the results?

    Takeuchi: Very much so. (laughs)

    Nasu: We really didn't attempt any of that obvious erotica in "stay night", so I recall feeling a bit embarrassed when wee created the Tiger Dojo. I was a tad uncertain about it, but I persuaded myself by saying it was part of the Tiger Dojo setup.

    Takeuchi: So you say, I remember how much you complained about the "Lolita in bloomers".

    Nasu: That was just my way of hiding my embarrassment. I just had to think of her as an enigma of sorts. She was a mystery to everyone, so there was no need to feel embarrassed about anything when it came to her!

    Takeuchi: A Lolita bloomer enigma... what a terribly sad enigma indeed.

    Nasu: Should we feel bad that we're concluding our talk on Illya with a talk about those damn bloomer shorts? Regardless, I can't deny that I think Illya looks really cute in her shorts, I think that was a definite jackpot.

    Takeuchi: Well sometimes the smallest decision can have the biggest impact. They do say knowing the difference between decisions that will and those that won't is the key to success.

    A: It was due to the ease of requesting material gathered at the Greater Grail, and some cheating, characteristic of the Einzbern. Although, Old Man Acht did not expect Illya to successfully summon a Servant a full 2 months in advance

    Q: What is Illya’s capacity as a Grail?
    Q: What is Illya’s capacity as a Grail? Hypothetically, if the Einzbern won the War, Illya absorbed the other 6 Servants besides Berserker, and had some shred of human will left, could she still don the Dress of Heaven and initiate the Grail ritual?

    A: That’s what Liz and Sella are for. Illya can only take up to 4 - I would think that absorbing a fifth Servant wouldn’t allow her to function as a human any longer.

    Illyasviel von Einzbern [Person's name]
    The daughter of Irisviel and Kiritsugu, and one of the heroines of the future Fifth Holy Grail War – this isn’t a lie! Illya’s route exists in everyone’s hearts!
    The original story of Fate had events hinting at this, but in Zero her shocking age issue is very quickly revealed.
    Incidentally, the reason Saber didn’t speak her feelings during the Fifth War was because she had never asked Iri about her daughter’s name, and Illya’s appearance seemed far too young for her to be Iri’s daughter (after 10 years, the child that used to sit on Kiritsugu’s shoulders should already have developed a voluptuous body, that was the reasoning). So, she viewed Illya as an Einzbern homunculus completely unrelated to Iri – it’s definitely not a lame excuse.

    Dress of Heaven [Armament]
    A magical artifact passed down by the Einzberns.
    As the heart that governs the Great Holy Grail, it is imbued with sorcery that can materialize the soul for just a few seconds.
    Though the dress is pure white, it is actually made of gold. It is inlaid with seven "rings" said to control creation, and the souls of others.
    The seven holes in the dress are the seven transformed rings, and they are designed to light up one by one every time a Servant's soul is harvested.
    Since any human who touches the dress will be turned to gold, its management must be handled by elementals, demi-humans, or homunculi.

    Q: At the end of Sakura Route, the shape of the Shirou resurrected by the Third Magic was not human, correct? If his shape was not human, how did they know which object was Shirou?

    A: Rider used Rin's pendant as a landmark. As to the state that Shirou was in, I will leave it up to your imagination. Since Shirou was reconstructed from a portion of Illya's body, in terms of size, you would not expect him to be the same as the original. That was my thought process.

    The Three Families [Others]
    In “Apocrypha”, the Three Families are the magi who constructed the Fuyuki Holy Grail War… in other words, the Einzberns, Tohsaka and Makiri.
    Just as alluded in the light novels, Makiri (Matou) Zouken fought fiercely against Darnic during the Third Holy Grail War, but became practically crippled due to the shock of the Greater Grail being stolen. The family wasn’t blessed with a successor either, so their future as magi has been completely shut.
    The Tohsaka gave up on the Greater Grail, and now seek a new path in becoming one with the universe with Chinese Kenpou while learning magecraft. The twin-tail daughter of the family might also end up becoming the founder of a “completely new martial arts that combines magecraft and Chinse Kenpou” by the time she becomes a high school student. However, she never imagined that her younger sister who was adopted by distant relatives would come visit her in Japan after becoming a pro-wrestler with unimaginably nice proportions and forming a tag team with a drill-roll-haired girl…!
    The Einzberns are in the midst of struggling to make a new Greater Grail under the excuse “It was stolen, so we’ll just make a new Holy Grail”. Fortunately, in the “Apocrypha” world, a certain dead fish-eyed mercenary won’t end up becoming involved with the Einzberns, so their greatest work Illyasviel will never be born—therefore, as long as she isn’t born, the Einzberns will never despair… Is that really fortunate?

    Illyasviel von Einzbern [Person's name]
    Berserker's Master.
    The mysterious lolita who approached the clueless Shirou at the beginning of the story and called him "big bro".
    The girl who possessed both innocence and brutality, and was somehow deeply interested in Shirou.
    It was truly fortunate to behold someone who was simultaneously an angel and a demon.
    As a Master, her aptitude was the greatest amongst all Masters past and present.
    Command Spells were carved all over her body. The number of her Magic Circuits overwhelmed that of a typical magus. These factors and many more made her almost a vessel that existed to win the Holy Grail War.
    She became a key character in all routes, but her true identity and nature were only revealed in the final route.
    Ilya got along well with Shirou and had trouble deciding whether or not to kill him.
    She had a personal route during development. However, if that were made, then the release date of Fate/Stay Night would be delayed by another half a year. Thank God.

    Q: In Saber’s route, there was a scene where Illya was frightened by Gil’s appearance, and her Command Seal was described as “glowing.” Is this because Illya’s Command Seals are different than those of other Masters? Are the Seals her Thaumaturgical Crest or something?

    A: Illya’s Command Seals are also her Magic Circuits, so the generation of mana causes it to appear as if she is activating her Seals.

  38. [v] Fate/side material - Encyclopedia: Berserker [Servant], p.069

    Berserker [Servant]
    The mad warrior Heroic Spirit.
    Regardless of basic abilities, Berserkers are a type of Servant that specialise in destruction through “going berserk”.
    The Berserker in this story was an exceptional Heroic Spirit, but due to his “Mad Enhancement”, he became an untouchable monster.
    In the case of a normal Master, Berserker can cancel the control of Command Spells. However, Illyasviel, who was acting as the Holy Grail, was able to control Berserker due to her Command Spells being special.
    His true identity is the great Grecian hero Hercules.
    For Hercules, who had gone berserk numerous times in legend, the Berserker Class probably feels quite familiar.
    Of course, Hercules is exceptional in body, mind, and skills. Since Hercules had mastered every weapon, he can even qualify for the Sabre Class without difficulty.
    If Hercules had been summoned in the Saber Class, he would be able to fully display his phenomenal sword play.
    Hercules was the earliest Servant to be summoned. He was summoned more than one, no, more than two months prior to the Holy Grail War.
    Berserker cannot act independently as his emotions have been sealed.
    However, no matter how strong the bondage of Command Spells, Berserker never lost the sense at the core of his being.
    After being Blackened in the Sakura Route, Berserker was able to halt the last strike of his Axe Sword before he died. He was able to do so due to the strength of his heart; a heart which suffered the pain of berserking since his early days as a hero.
    In the story of Fate, Berserker is the most manly character.

    Class: Berserker
    Master: Illyasviel von Einzbern
    Alignment: Chaotic Mad
    Sex: Male
    Height: 253cm
    Weight: 311kg
    Weapon: Axe-Sword

    STR: A+
    CON: A
    AGI: A
    MGI: A
    LCK: B
    Noble Phantasm: A

    A demigod hero of Greek Mythology, he was born between the King of Gods Zeus and a human girl. He received the violent hatred of Zeus' wife Hera because of his origins and was tormented by the goddess at every turn. However, he entirely overcame the difficulties he had been given, and was enshrined as a god in the end.

    Heracles had an extremely violent temperament as an infant, and grew up as a shepherd in order to obtain a gentle heart. Having grown into a fine adult, Heracles was recognized for several feats, and gained two children as well as the right of succession to the throne. However, Hera made Heracles go temporarily insane and he killed his wife and children, ending up in the role of a slave to the king to atone for his sins. Here the jealous king gave him a challenge, the famous Twelve Labors. The Labors were all things that a human could not achieve but Heracles completed them safely, and at the same time he was freed from slavery, he received an immortal body.

    However, the adventures of Heracles and Hera's hatred did not end there. Hera's numerous artifices resulted in Heracles' poisoning by his own wife from his second marriage. In his final moments, Heracles cremated himself, surrendering to Zeus's judgment. The gods after consulting recognize Heracles' feats, and he was recruited as a god like his father, becoming a constellation.

    An excellent warrior, he possesses the qualifications corresponding to six classes excluding Caster. Other than specializing with the bow, he has mastered every weapon. However, all that is talk about times when he is not Berserker. Heracles as a Berserker has lost his rationality, and exists only to utterly defeat the enemy from the front as directed by Illya. Naturally, there is no such thing as detailed tactics, leaving it to physical ability and brandishing an axe-sword to strike. Astonishingly, with just that, it is a fact that he demonstrates hand-to-hand combat abilities superior to every Servant. Without breaking to even think about defense, he leaves it to his Noble Phantasm "God Hand."

    Class Abilities
    Mad Enhancements: B
    The Class Skill that characterizes Berserker, it reinforces ability at the cost of reason. As Heracles' possesses the skill at Rank B, in compensation for losing most of his sanity, the levels of all his abilities rise. Heracles beat his harp instructor to death when he was a child, and had many episodes when he killed people in his rage without even hearing them speak. It seems that for Heracles, Berserker that receives "Mad Enhancement" was an easy class to adapt to. Focusing on controllability when out of combat, the rank of "Mad Enhancement" is suppressed by Illya.

    Being close to the strongest Heroic Spirit, even restricted to simple direct melee as consequence of Mad Enhancement, Heracles was undoubtedly the strongest among the Servants. However, because of Mad Enhancement, a variety of sword techniques and skills, and a part of his Noble Phantasms was lost. Having his emotions also sealed off and not able to perform any personally motivated actions, only the reason within his core was not lost, having occasions when he felt something like the will to protect Illya.

    Personal Abilities
    Battle Continuation: A
    A skill that allows for the continuation of combat after sustaining mortal wounds. It will also reduce mortality rate from injury. Cú Chulainn’s Battle Continuation represents “never give up no matter what”, while Hercules’ represents the ability to survive. The Noble Phantasm that allows for resurrection after death, God Hand, has exceptional compatibility with the “will not die easily” skill Battle Continuation.
    The best result is achieved when a resilient body is combined with this skill.

    Eye of the Mind (False): B
    A danger avoidance ability based on Intuition/Sixth Sense, gained through many ordeals and adventures. Even though Hercules’ sanity was lost due to Mad Enhancement, this skill remained effective as it is nearly an instinct. When crossing swords with a seasoned swordsman like Artoria, he would not fall for half-hearted feints. It is such a troublesome ability for Hercules’ opponents.

    Although monstrous in size, Hercules has the highest rank in Agility. As a result, it is very difficult to corner him.

    Bravery: A+
    With his brave and daring spirit, Herakles is able to neutralise mental interference such as suppression, confusion and charm. However, under the influence of Mad Enhancement, this skill is unable to take effect. While operating correctly, Bravery also increases the damage inflicted upon the opponent during melee combat. This skill allowed Herakles to defeat several monsters empty-handed.

    Even the brave warrior’s heart was painted over by the insanity of Mad Enhancement.

    Divinity: A
    Being a mixed-race child of the King of Gods Zeus and a human, and becoming a god after death, Herakles naturally possessed the highest level of the Divinity skill. However, this matter became a disaster, ending with his complete entrapment in Gilgamesh's Noble Phantasm "Chains of Heaven" that grows in strength proportionate to the enemy's Divinity.

    Noble Phantasm
    God Hand: Twelve Labors
    Rank: B
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: -
    Maximum Targets:

    A blessing of Gods, as well as a curse. It is a Noble Phantasm given to Heracles, representing immortality. This Noble Phantasm does not have an overt external manifestation such as a weapon or armour, but if you hazard to put a shape to it, the body itself can be called the Noble Phantasm. God Hand turns one’s body into a tough suit of armour and nullifies all attacks Rank B or lower, regardless the attack being physical or magical. It also has the effect of automatic resurrection after death. Because the resurrection effect has 11 uses, Heracles cannot perish unless killed 12 times. In addition, due to Illya’s immense magical energy, given enough time, the lives lost can also be regenerated.

    Resurrection as well as attack-nullification. Besides these two effects, God Hand also possesses a third effect: rendering an attack that it has experienced before useless. Regardless how powerful is the Noble Phantasm that defeated Heracles, it would be completely nullified after he resurrects.

    Nine Lives: The Shooting Hundred Heads
    Rank: -
    Type: -
    Range: -
    Maximum Targets: -

    Among Hercules’Noble Phantasms, he trusted this one the most. It was the Noble Phantasm which Hercules used to slay the immortal nine-headed serpent Hydra once upon a time, taking the form of bow and arrow. After killing the Hydra, Hercules could even utilise techniques that emulate the ability of this Noble Phantasm when wielding other weapons. In essence, it is “a high speed attack consisting of nine consecutive strikes, as swift as if the attacks are overlapping”. Even when delivered via sword, spear, or axe, this technique still boasts power on the level of Noble Phantasms. Also, just like Cú Chulainn’s demonic spear Gae Bolg has a technique called “Gae Bolg – Piercing Death Thorn”, Hercules’ technique shares the “Nine Lives – Shooting of Hundred Heads” name with the Noble Phantasm.

    Shirou projected this secret sword technique while projecting Hercules’ Axe Sword, thus annihilating the Blackened Hercules. While summoned as a Berserker, Hercules could not use Nine Lives.

    Q: For the battle scene between Rin and Ilya in the anime, did Ilya just get way stronger?! Was her strength based on 「Fate/Zero」? <UMA>

    Nasu: If it's at the land that houses the Holy Grail, then Ilya is indeed that strong. And being able to make a familiar from her hair was in the original draft. The work this time around was especially hard, so I ended up using an "Iri's replacement" approach. By the way, the name of the technique is Elfen Lied [German for Elves' Song, 天使の詩 - Angel's Poem]. The bird's name is Storch Fieseler [German term for a type of plane]. The Ibis that shoots bullets is Zahre (tear), and she can also transform them into an Épée (a sword).

Still, first-class mages would follow the "since she's a child of nature, just cut her off from the land first" plan, so it's not like she's invincible. Kayneth and Tokiomi may be able to best her in a magic duel. Rin is just relentless. But if we're talking about the dark girl who contaminates the land itself...
