The term Lily (リリィ, Riryi?) when used as an affix of a Heroic Spirit's True Name denotes them being summoned as a Servant with a younger aspect than normally observed. The term Larva (ラーヴァ, Rāva?) is used in a similar fashion.


Lily Servants can be summoned as such natrually or become Lily through the alteration of their Saint Graph.[1] The term is typically used in conjunction with the True Names of female Servants, but it has been used to describe male Servants as well.[2] Becoming younger than normal does not automatically make a Servant a Lily, such as in the case of Archer Heracles becoming Alcides.[3]

The term Larva is also used. This term seems to be used for powerful entities who are degraded into younger versions of themselves to be summoned as servants.
