Karl der Große (Charles the GreatWP) (カール大帝WP, Kāru Taitei?), Class Name Ruler (ルーラー, Rūrā?), is a Ruler-class Servant appearing in the post-Moon Holy Grail War world of Fate/EXTELLA LINK. He is the primary antagonist of Fate/EXTELLA LINK.



The model of the legend of Charlemagne who achieved the unity of Western Europe. Karl and Charlemagne are both the same Heroic Spirit with the same Saint Graph, but Charlemagne will never normally be summoned because he embodies the fantasy aspect of the legend. Karl's real life exploits outweigh the other aspects of his legend. They are registered as two unique Saint Graphs by the Moon Cell at the end of the story, so they can each be summoned.

Karl and Astolfo discover the Velber mural

As a youth, Karl and one of his knights, Astolfo, came across the remains of Velber in the Alps, along with a giant stone mural depicting the three Velber Anti-Cells sent to Earth, including Sefar. When Karl touched a fragment that would in the future be called "the Monolith", they had a vision of the Velber, and Karl saw his destiny to unify Europe and the world. He found his mission from God: to defeat all evil and save the world, united under one banner as one people. Astolfo describes how after coming into contact with those remains his King changed, becoming like a completely different person, and it may have made him "something other than human". Altera would later say that what Karl touched was the "stars' will".[1]


A figure of tall and muscular bearing, Karl der Große has a handsome, aged appearance, with a cross-shaped beard, long, curled hair, crimson eyes, and a tall crown upon his head. He adorns golden armor and a white and black body suit, with gold line details. A golden cross is also placed at the center of his chest, and black cloth drapes from his pauldrons. He bears a resemblance to the historical Charlemagne/Charles The Great during his later years, only having blond hair instead of white.

Astolfo's flashback to when Karl discovered the Velber shows that when he was young he looked just like Saber Charlemagne.


Karl is described as a "majestic man", "holy king", and "supreme ruler." He is said to never distress or lose his way, regardless of being faced with victory or defeat, and he will push forward with calm judgement. Regardless of the era, he boasts of a strong love only second to that of God. He is extremely relentless in battle, only showing kindness to those who show their allegiance to "God" as well.[2]

His wish is bring to about eternal and universal peace to all people in the name of God and the World. He had once believed he could build a kingdom where everyone can live in peace and happiness, and where religions can co-exist with one another. He also believed universal understanding would come about if the people continue to wish for peace. However, the people didn't want peace, instead they wanted Karl to "correct" those who had different views and beliefs as them, deeming them wrong and themselves correct. Karl began to lose his faith in humanity upon coming face to face with the violent and contradictory nature of humanity while conquering western Europe. Upon being summoned as a Servant, he came to realization that his wish can only come true if everyone were like him. Even though he knows it'll destroy individuality, Karl believes assimilating all existence with his own will finally bring peace and salvation to all.



Karl acts as the primary antagonist of Fate/EXTELLA LINK, seeking to assimilate and bring SE.RA.PH under his rule,[3] in the name of God.[1]

The aspects of Charles the Great were miraculously summoned as separate Servants: the reality, Karl, and the fantasy, Charlemagne. Karl told Charlemagne to leave his sight, as he could not absorb him. After Charlemagne fled in terror, Karl began his construction of the New Holy Empire and summoned his fortress, Carolus Patricius. Needing a tremendous amount of energy to assimilate SE.RA.PH with himself to bring about his goal of universal peace, Karl began to Oraclize those who could help gather that energy. He Oraclized Karna, Medusa, Lu Bu, Darius III, and Lancelot. He tried to Oraclize Gilles de Rais, but it failed when Gilles resisted. Karl recruited him nonetheless. He also hired Francis Drake to be one of his generals instead of Oraclizing her.

Constructing the Spirit Core Replication System, Karl has Gilgamesh captured and strapped into a machine that continuously drains him of his mana to fuel the Spirit Core Replication System’s first furnace. Using the Spirit Core of a Top Servant, Karl is able to replicate the Spirit Core data of Servants to produce a near infinite number of Attack Programs, as well to create copies of Servants. However, the copies are far too degraded, thus only Shadow Servants were produced.

Eventually, at separate points of time, Jeanne d’Arc and Scáthach were ordered to kill Karl, as he became a threat to SE.RA.PH. However, he proved to be far more powerful for either Top Servant, and they were both defeated. Karl Oraclized Scáthach while he used his power to convert Jeanne into blue particles. These particles were then used to fuel the Spirit Core Replication System’s second furnace. With a Spirit Core of another Top Servant, Karl is able to create more stable copies of Spirit Core data. Using this data in conjunction with the blue particles to create a body, Facsimile Servants are produced. However, even with two Top Servants as a power source, the replicated Spirit Cores still degrade, and thus the Fax. Servants are only a rank above Shadow Servants.

Sometime later, Karl recruited Li Shuwen with the promise of a duel against Scáthach. Still needing another Spirit Core of a Top Servant and more energy to fuel his fourth Noble Phantasm, Karl launched his invasion of SE.RA.PH.

First Route[]

Day 1[]

Karl orders Karna and Drake to invade Mare Aurum. Unknown to him at the time, he ended up calling to Altera after Charlemagne defended her and Hakuno from Attack Programs. After Hakuno’s faction repels Karna and Drake’s invasion, Karl’s forces launch a two pronged invasion of Mare Luxuria and Mare Mellum.[4]

Later in Carolus Patricius, Karl appoints Gilles as his second-in-command. He tells him to show the enemy the will and righteous path of God and the World, and to share his dream to create a utopia on the Moon. He further declares he came to liberate all Servant.[4]

Later, Karl sees Altera, who recently arrived in the fortress. He thankful to see her safe and sound. He answers Altera he invaded SE.RA.PH to grant his wish, even if it means hurting other people. He does not expect Altera nor anyone to understand him. After Karl speaks of his wish at length, Altera considers it both good and bad, and knows no one can stop him from granting his wish. Though he furrows his brow at Altera’s pity, Karl continues his assimilation of SE.RA.PH, all the while wishing that if he cannot be understood, he can still be accepted.[4]

Day 2[]

If Hakuno’s faction oust the New Holy Empire from Mare Luxuria, Karl is surprised that Karna was forced to retreat. He doesn’t blame Karna nor Lu Bu, though, understanding Hakuno’s faction acted according to their knowledge of his forces’ strength. He then orders the collection of more energy, the Oraclization of all digital beings and the assimilation of every Servant, NPC, and Wizard. Announcing an eternal empire will descend upon the Moon, Karl declares fantasy will give way to reality, to the unchanging will of God and the World.[5]

If Hakuno’s faction oust the New Holy Empire from Mare Mellum, Karl is surprised at their losses, even though they have Darius, Medusa, and Lancelot on their side. Karna tells him not to blame them, but Karl does doesn’t care about blame. He says victory depends on strategy, so he alone should shoulder the results. Hakuno’s strength surprises him, though. He then orders the collection of more energy, the Oraclization of all digital beings and the assimilation of every Servant, NPC, and Wizard. Announcing an eternal empire will descend upon the Moon, Karl declares fantasy will give way to reality, to the unchanging will of God and the World.[5]

If Hakuno’s faction oust the New Holy Empire from Mare Aurum, Karl sees Drake’s loss as her measuring the strength of Hakuno’s forces. Hakuno’s strength surprises him, though, to which Drake reveals Hakuno won the Holy Grail War without losing or retreating. Karl finds Hakuno wouldn’t be a worthy opponent if that wasn’t the case, finding them to be a fitting final trail on the path to his destiny. He then orders the collection of more energy, the Oraclization of all digital beings and the assimilation of every Servant, NPC, and Wizard. Announcing an eternal empire will descend upon the Moon, Karl declares fantasy will give way to reality, to the unchanging will of God and the World.[5]

Day 3[]

If Hakuno’s faction defeat the New Holy Empire forces at Mare Origo, Karl remarks how they defeated Darius and recruited Cú Chulainn. He realizes now is the time to rally their troops, which Li Shuwen takes as an indication it’s his turn now. Karl confirms such, and commands him to mobilize.

If Hakuno’s faction undoes Astolfo‘s Oraclization at Mare Mellum, Karl accepts Astolfo has joined them. Altera asks if he’s sad, but he merely replies he is the System, as he’s given his body to peace, God, and the World. He declares himself to be unchanging and universal. Altera tells him it’s sad to be alone, but Karl claims he doesn’t know fear. Declaring he only feared God and the World in his first life, Karl says it will be the same in his second life. But he laments if he will be able to bear this.

If Hakuno’s faction undoes Elizabeth Bathory‘s Oraclization at Mare Aurum, Karl accepts she has joined them. He states Elizabeth has a wound on her soul that will never heal, and pities her for going against the very power that would save her despite her pain. Altera calls Elizabeth loud and haughty yet honest, which makes Karl realizes he shouldn’t have Oraclized her. He states to assimilate Elizabeth is to crush her dream , something he cannot allow as he cannot crush his own dream.

Day 4[]

If Hakuno’s faction defeat the New Holy Empire at Mare Origio, Karl is mildly surprised they failed to Oraclize them even with all their troops. He then sends Scáthach out.[6][7]

If Hakuno’s faction defeat the New Holy Empire at Mare Luxuria, Karl wonders if their strength is simply good fortune since they’ve defeated Li Shuwen. He wishes Scáthach luck when she prepares to go to battle. He hopes she will accept his universal truth when she returns, but Scáthach cannot promise that.[6]

Day 7[]

Welcoming Hakuno, Charlemagne, Nero Claudius, and Tamamo-no-Mae when they enter Carolus Patricius’s Great Cathedral, Karl introduces himself and proclaims to be final savior that’ll bring salvation to all. He will unite everyone as the bringer of unchanging universal truth, claiming he is the answer the humanity has arrived at. He shall bestow eternal peace in the name of God and the World, and equality through unity. Nero rejects Karl’s unity, as it will remove the people’s individuality. Karl denies her and explains universal justice could never come from heroes, stating they need a world where everyone is equal. Proclaiming all that should be is him, God, and the World, he announces he will assimilate all of existence into his own. He tells the group to discard their ephemeral live and embrace eternity, declaring it to be love. Charlemagne calls his love selfish, to which Karl calls him a mistake and wonders what blunder brought him. He also claims his rule would adamant if it wasn’t Charlemagne, and declares there is no place for him in the new world. Charlemagne declares he has come to stop Karl’s broken dream, but Karl declares he has the power now to make it real. He then enters the altar-like structure at the end of the Cathedral and summons his troops to attack the group. After his troops are defeated, Karl reveals the altar to his third Noble Phantasm, Carolus Patricius Auctoritas, and prepares to activate it to assimilate all. Crashing through the windows of the Cathedral, a tremendous amount of blue particles are then absorbed into Carolus Patricius Auctoritas, which transforms into its battle form. Then, piloting the mechanized armor, Karl fights the group. Ultimately though, he is fatally wounded when the group destroys Carolus Patricius Auctoritas. Karl disappears in rage towards his unfulfilled dream and Charlemagne. With his defeat, Carolus Patricius is destroyed, the assimilated Servants are returned to normal, and the Fax. Servants all disappear.[8][9]

Second Route[]

Day 4[]

After Hakuno’s faction prevents Gilles from capturing Artoria Pendragon, Karl regrets they weren’t able to secure the third core. He explains Spirit Cores can indeed be replicated with only the cores of two Top Servants, but they will not be stable. Altera says they’ll need someone else before they complete the World, but Karl suggests he and her join the World to make three. Altera asks if that’s what he wants, and Karl answers he does not seek what cannot be done. He then decides that if there are only two, then the World shall be saved by two.

After Hakuno’s faction reverts Jeanne back to her original state, Karl goes to the Monolith. There Archimedes confronts him, shocked by how warped Karl’s Spirit Origin is. He explains he came to ascertain if there was a danger to Moon Cell. He concludes there is no such danger, so he doesn’t need to interfere. Karl then approaches the Monolith and recalls how his quest for universality began with it. He also remarks he never thought he would encounter it again after being summoned. Altera asks him if he wants to destroy all bad civilization and bring out eternal peace. He answers he wants to free everyone from their sins, and bring forth the will of God and the World. For the sake of saving all Servants, he will release the seal on Carolus Patricius Dimitte. He asks Archimedes if he objects when Archimedes is surprised by a single Servant having such lofty goals. Archimedes explains he doesn’t care for the politics of SE.RA.PH, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the Moon Cell’s operations. It would be different if Karl’s goal was to destroy the Moon Cell, but that isn’t the case. After Archimedes leaves, Karl remarks the Moon Cell itself intends to watch over his great endeavor. Then, calling himself a sacrifice to the system called the Holy Empire, he asserts he’ll become Rex Magnus by the will of God and the World.[10]

Day 5[]

Karl calls the Monolith the key to the alien star and believes it has the same origin as the power that guided him and Altera. Only he, who touched it in his first life, and Altera can control the Monolith. Altera (now in her adult form) wonders if she placed her burdens on Karl and Charlemagne. Karl is joyous though that he received his life’s purpose, unlike the billions who never found theirs. He then explains he intended to assimilate every Servant, NPC, and human one by one, but Hakuno proved to be a more formidable opponent than expected, along with Charlemagne. Believing there is no other choice now, he asks Altera not to stop him. Altera realizes he intends to use the Monolith to assimilate all of SE.RA.PH all at once. Karl understands it’s a desperate measure, as this method will assimilate 60% of digital life forms while the rest will disappear. He exclaims neither ethics nor justice will stop him, as he was made for this purpose. He apologizes to Altera for being unable to live any other way. Then activating the Monolith, He proceeds to Mare Mellum with Altera and a massive army.[11]

After Altera is defeated by Hakuno’s faction and reverted to her child form, Karl suddenly appears, and agrees that Altera should rest now. Charlemagne calls Karl’s goal a daydream, but Karl asks if the vision Altera showed them was a mere delusion. Charlemagne responds he’s always wanted to build a kingdom where everyone can smile, but Karl is obsessed. Called broken and beyond repair, Karl tells Charlemagne he would never understand, and admits that he’s been backed into a corner. However, he reveals the Monolith can no longer be stopped, explaining Altera held the group long enough for it to fully activate. Charlemagne attacks him, but Karl easily counters and drains Charlemagne of nearly all his magical energy. He calls Charlemagne a fantasy that cannot touch him. He then tells the group to await the end in peace, which was his original intention for coming, and leaves.

Day 6[]

At Carolus Patricius, Karl activates Carolus Patricius Dimitte, prompting blue particles to spread out from the fortress. Later, he is confronted by Hakuno, Charlemagne, Nero, and Tamamo in Carolus Patricius’ Great Cathedral, which is now flooded with blue particles. He tells them resistance is futile and to accept salvation, but Charlemagne counters he and the others can beat the odds. After Jeanne temporarily halts the Oraclization with Luminosité Eternelle, Karl reminds her that her power cannot stop him. Jeanne understands she cannot defeat him alone, but now she has comrades by her side, thanks to Hakuno. Karl exclaims his truth will remain steadfast against the group’s so-called intangible nonsense. He then enters Carolus Patricius Auctoritas‘ dormant form and summons troops to attack the group. After his troops are defeated, Karl activates Carolus Patricius Auctoritas, absorbing a tremendous amount of blue particles into it. Carolus Patricius Auctoritas transforms into its battle form, and Karl pilots it to assimilate the group by force. However, after a long battle, the group destroys Carolus Patricius Auctoritas, leaving Karl fatally wounded. He soon disappears with his regrets as Carolus Patricius begins to collapse.[12][13]

Final Route[]

Day 2[]

Following the start of his invasion of SE.RA.PH, Karl grants an audience to Altera with him, not recognizing her at first. He soon recognizes her despite her appearance, and wonders if God sent her to test him, to which Altera answers no.[14]

Day 3[]

Karl senses Charlemagne approaching, referring to him as his shadow and daydream. Altera asks him what he will wish for once he’s killed Charlemagne. Karl answers his wish always be to bring universal peace to everyone. If SE.RA.PH is to be their new land, then it shall be land where people can live in peace. Karl claims God and the World desire love, and declares he was come to spread this truth all across SE.RA.PH. He asserts his words are the truth when Altera questions it.

Karl later learns from Gilles that Hakuno’s faction freed Gilgamesh from the Spirit Core Replication Factory. Giles apologizes for the destruction of the factory and reports Carolus Patricius Dimitte’s activation will be delayed with only one core. Karl admits he had no assumptions of keeping Gilgamesh forever, as the King of Heroes’ complacency let them exploit him. Accepting Gilgamesh is lost to them, Karl declares his magical energy and the Monolith will take care of the rest. Since his empire has conquered most of SE.RA.PH and still has Jeanne’s Spirit Core, Karl is confident resuming the replication of Spirit Cores will not be a difficult He then asks Gilles about Hakuno’s faction.

Day 5[]

After Altera returns to Hakuno’s side, Karl accepts her choice since she only stayed in Carolus Patricius because of him. He then asserts he has sacrificed his body for justice, world peace, and the salvation of all souls. He announces he will activate the Monolith, and orders Gilles and Drake to delay Hakuno’s faction until it’s activated.

Day 7[]

Welcoming Hakuno, Charlemagne, Nero, and Tamamo when they enter the Great Cathedral, Karl reveals he’s already absorbed the Monolith’s power and activated Carolus Patricius Dimitte. Except for Hakuno’s Servants, every Servant in SE.RA.PH has been assimilated by Karl. Karl declares himself to be their salvation, telling the group to kneel and cry tears of joy. He declares himself to be the end and the embodiment of the will of the God and the World. He then points to the blue light produced by his Noble Phantasm, claiming it to be the universal light of the Holy Spirit and what all great rulers dreamt of. Charlemagne talks to him, but Karl mocks him as a shadow of his legend; a wild lie told by bards for money and drinks. He reminds Charlemagne of what happened when they were were summoned. Charlemagne recalls his first life, at which Karl becomes infuriated because it never existed. He explains the Twelve Paladins were his elite troops, and nothing fantastical existed during his reign unlike Charlemagne’s “memories“. After recounting how he shaped the foundations of western Europe, he asks Charlemagne of which of their legends did the world need. Charlemagne answers it needed Karl, and reminds him of his dream of building a kingdom of peace and happiness, along with his desire to co-exist with other religions. He reminds Karl that he believed people could understand each other someday if they continued to wish for peace. Karl denies his words, and points out how the world is filled with contradictions. Stating everyone fights for their own truth, he laments how people continue to forcibly correct those they deem wrong. He then states his wish for peace and unity cannot be achieved without power. On that subject, he reveals the Western European Financial Group has roots in his Holy Roman Empire, hailing from a united Europe. They should have carried on his will, instead they allowed poverty to run rampant on Earth and trap humanity on it. As human wisdom is limited and the Western European Financial Group would let his people rot, Karl claims a savior is needed. He declares through the Oracle all will exist as one, claiming the masses desire it and he can ensure humans can kill each other. He also reveals that his Oraclized remained who they were before, even while they fought Hakuno’s Servants. Though he agrees with Karl’s goals, Charlemagne calls Karl’s salvation to eliminate life’s struggles nearly the same as eliminating life itself. Deciding the time for talk is over, Karl rages on how he should’ve killed Charlmagne long ago. Claiming his Spirit Core never needed Charlemagne, he enters Carolus Patricius Auctoritas.[15]

Carolus Patricius Auctoritas absorbs a tremendous amount of blue particles and transforms into his battle form. Charlemagne declares the salvation of humanity isn’t the only thing Karl believes to Karl’s confusion. Charlemagne claims that despite them splitting into fantasy and reality, they both continued to believe they would save Altera after seeing a vision of her upon touching Sefar’s remains, and believed they could continue to live in peace. Karl states one cannot afford such foolish wishes if they wish to become the system. Charlemagne rejects this and says Karl’s salvation should include Karl as well. He then reveals the Oraclization worked on the Servants because it aligned with their primal desire of wanting to live as themselves. Those feelings became stronger in Karl when he discarded his fantasies. Tired of Charlemagne’s talking, Karl proclaims himself as the greatness beyond humanity, as Charlemagne should know. He criticizes Charlemagne for claiming to know better than him, even though they lived the same life. He finds it unforgivable, but Charlemagne counters trying to live by eclipsing others is even more so. Karl declares himself to be the light while Charlemagne is his shadow, one unable to see the glory and guidance of God. He then fights the group after rejecting Charlemagne’s belief that a savior isn’t needed.[15]

Unlike the previous routes though, Karl breaks off Carolus Patricius Auctoritas’s top half from its lower half before its main mana generator reaches critical mass. Switching to the backup generator, he continues fighting with only half of Carolus Patricius Auctoritas. Eventually though, the mechanized armor is destroyed, but Karl survives and emerges from the wreckage. Unwilling to give up, Karl states he wants to live as the self that rejected fantasy and rooted in reality. He and Charlemagne then engage in a final duel, even though Charlemagne knows it means his demise. After being defeated, Karl angrily regrets he has yet to accomplish anything yet, and he has yet to save Altera. Charlemagne reveals someone else saved Altera. Karl questions Charlemagne’s decision, even though they both wanted to live and save Altera. Charlemagne replies his summoning was a miracle, knowing the next Charles summoned will be closer to Karl since they’re mixed together in the Throne of Heroes. Understanding Karl doesn’t want to return to being a mixture of fantasy and reality, Charlemagne admits he desires the same and claims Karl’s current self to be a form of salvation, though not for himself. He doesn’t need salvation, though, only wanting to live a life Hakuno and Altera can be proud of. Upon hearing these words, Karl sits on his throne and accepts it’s truly the end for both of them. He says that while he will simply change, Charlemagne will cease to exist. He asks him if that is what he truly wants. Charlemagne answers it is as they both need to wake up. Karl agrees, content that Altera was saved at the very least. He then disappears, asking Hakuno to take care of Altera.[15]

Fate/Grand Order[]

Charlemagne and Karl combined.

Charlemagne is summoned separately from Karl, but in Charlemagne's third ascension elements of Karl have become infused into his Spirit Origin.[16]

Don Quixote pretends to be Karl in the Traum Singularity.


A Heroic Spirit having two golden ages is extremely rare. Servants are normally fashioned after their namesakes at the height of their abilities. However, a rare few of those namesakes, such as Li Shuwen, were known for doing two things exceptionally well at different stages of their lives. For example, a physical powerhouse might grow into some great mental enlightenment. In cases like that, only one incarnation at a time is normally summoned. Which one depends on the Master.[11] This is a similar case to the hero Charlemagne. Whereas "Charlie's" class is based on his golden age as a swordsman, Karl der Große’s is based on his golden age as a king.[11] Furthermore, if "Charlie" is the embodiment of Charlemagne’s legend, a hero with memories about adventures, paladins, and monsters, Karl is the historical figure.[14]

Because both aspects of Charlemagne originate from the same Spirit Core, when both of them are summoned, it puts pressure on both of them. Since Karl der Große is closer to being the real thing, the pressure on him is like a mosquito bite. In "Charlie's" case, the pressure is tougher.[9] Normally, it would be impossible to summon Saber Charlemagne, since he is he’s not actually on the Moon Cell’s roster for Heroic Spirits, and Karl would get summoned instead.[15] However, in the events of Fate/EXTELLA LINK, he was successfully summoned by the Moon Cell to stop the assimilation of SE.RA.PH orchestrated by Karl.[4][11]



Karl der Große possesses a power known as the Oracle (天声同化(オラクル), Tensei Dōka(Orakuru)?). The Oraclization is a process initiated by physically contacting the subject's Spirit Core and rewriting their mental attributes. Karl's strong natural Charisma, coupled with the power of the Aberrant Star Key (aka the Monolith, a fragment of Velber), makes him ideally suited this enact this process. The St. Metropolita, Karl's second Noble Phantasm, mass produces virus programs, which then assimilate the minds and souls of other beings, making them subordinate to Karl. Somewhat different from regular brainwashing, as the basic morals of those assimilated do not change.[17] Jeanne d'Arc was able to stop momentarily stop this attack with Luminosité Eternelle, not only protecting herself, but Charlemagne, Nero Claudius and Tamamo-no-Mae aswell, along with Hakuno Kishinami.[9]

Scáthach states that Karl is a being even greater than the Top Servants.[10] She claims that Karl der Große is strong due to possessing an unfathomable power in him, and that despite her being a Top Servant, when she attempted to kill him, she ended up under his brainwash spell. This doesn't quite mean that she lost, but rather, that she was compelled to give him her blessing, likely as part of his assimilation.[11] Jeanne d'Arc also states that she wouldn't be able to defeat him alone.[9] When Charlemagne first met Artoria Pendragon, he was so impressed by her power, that he claimed that they would at least have the certainty that she wouldn't get caught by Karl der Große, end up assimilated, and fighting against them again.[7]

Because the pressure on Charlemagne's Saint Graph is rather extreme compared to that of Karl der Große, the first time they crossed blades, Karl drained Charlemagne almost dry with a single touch.[12] From that point onward, Charlemagne's Saint Graph was under constant suffering, growing weaker the closer he got to Karl.[1]


Class Skills[]

Personal Skills[]

  • Great Emperor Privilege (A+ Rank): A Skill which allows Karl to acquire Skills which he doesn't possess for a short time. Its effect is the same as Imperial Privilege, but the skill name has been changed through self-declaration.[18]
  • Ceremonial Reformation (A Rank): A Skill which improves the functionality of the peoples and lands under Karl's control. In life, having been crowned the Western Roman Emperor by Leo IIIWP, Karl expanded his theocratical empireWP, developing its culture and economy, with parishes as its bones, monasteries as its meat and Roman liturgy as its blood.[18]

Noble Phantasms[]

His first Noble Phantasm, Joyeuse, is also possessed by Charlemagne. Unlike Charlemagne, Karl, having lived and being rooted in history rather than fantasy, is unable to use it to its full potential.[1]

His second Noble Phantasm, ​Carolus Patricius, is an automatically expanding giant fortress, encompassing both the armor covering the body of Karl der Große and the domain of the mobile holy city itself.[1] PatriciusWP was originally a title given to guardians of Rome and Italy.[1]

Carolus Patricius Auctoritas.gif

His third Noble Phantasm, Carolus Patricius Auctoritas is the trump card of Carolus Patricius which changes the giant fortress into attack form in order to sweep enemies away.[1] It manifests the form of a giant robot, with a vaguely humanoid design incorporating elements of a cathedral and the cross, which can fire missiles from launchers on its shoulders and a powerful beam from its mouth.[1] The combined efforts of Charlemagne, Nero Claudius, and Tamamo-no-Mae were able to destroy Karl's Carolus Patricius Auctoritas, defeated him in the process. Charlemagne states that it was due to having a Master with him whereas Karl didn’t. The difference between them was that Charlemagne had the faith and support of someone who believes in him, whereas Karl didn't.[8]

His fourth Noble Phantasm, Carolus Patricius Dimitte, is a more powerful version of Oracle powered by the Monolith.[15] With this Noble Phantasm, Karl attempts to absorb the entire Spiritron world, although he later revises this to 60% assimilation, with the remaining 40% simply fading away.[12]
