Poseidon, who had his promise trampled underneath Minos’ foot, placed a curse on Pasiphaë, the wife of the King, having induced her so that she will bear a sexual desire towards bulls. And like that, so was born Asterios, his name meaning “The One Who Rules the Stars”, but because he possesses the body of a man with the head of a bull, he was given the name “Minotauros”, which means ‘The Bull of King Minos’. Minos was at a complete loss because of the Queen’s scandal, so he ordered the famous artisan Daedalus to construct “a place where one can never get out from”————namely, the Labyrinth.
Because of the King’s command, it became a usual custom to offer seven boys and girls each as a sacrifice to Asterios. Understandably, he cannot offer the people of his own country, so King Minos demanded from Athens, the state that he invaded, to offer sacrifices for his compensation.
On the occasion of the sacrificial group being elected the third time around, Theseus, the Hero of Athens, came forward personally for the sake of defeating Asterios.

Theseus, with Ariadne’s cooperation in securing an escape route from the impossible-to-escape Labyrinth, succeeded in realizing Asterios’ defeat.
OlympiasWP (オリュンピアス?) was the mother of Iskandar. When Iskandar was a child, it was Olympias' influence that led to him to indulge in the tales of legendary heroes and come to believe that his father was Zeus. Olympias is regarded as Iskandar's natural enemy. She worshiped the god DionysusWP.
Olympias required both a companion for her son who would defend and never betray the King of Conquerors, and a magus who protect the king from any incoming curse. She orchestrated the birth of Hephaestion for the former and his sister for the latter. She raised the nameless sister to be Iskandar's magical body double who would protect him from curses, and taught her magecraft derived from the goddess Hecate.
As Dionysus is a god of alcohol, and alcohol is closely tied to dreams, Olympias is able to look into others' dreams with her magecraft. According to Hephaestion's sister, Olympias would charge "a price that could topple a nation" for someone to have her do so.
PatroclusWP was a close friend of Achilles. During the Trojan War he was killed by Hector. As a result, Achilles challenged and killed Hector in a one-on-one duel and dragged his corpse with his chariot in a burst of rage.
PeleusWP (ペレウス, Pereusu?) was a mythological Greek hero who was mentioned in Fate/Apocrypha as the father of Achilles and husband of Thetis. When Thetis tried to make her son immortal by bathing him in holy flames, Peleus opposed it, saying "Then that would destroy Achilles as a human", and thus one part of Achilles was preserved as human.
King Pellam was enchanted by Kundry's magical kiss. Kundry's master Klingsor used his magecraft to manipulate Sir Balin into fighting Pellam, in which Balin destroyed Pellam's castle with the Holy Spear.

His roots can be traced back to its Fire Emblem, which is said to depict the ungovernable nature of chaos itself; a long-lost connection to the Roman God Robigus. He was defeated by Gareth in the siege to recover Lioness. According to Merlin, the Red Knight is the embodiment of the Demon of Calamity itself, but is only one of countless calamities that threaten Britain.
RheaWP is a Titan and the wife of Kronos. There is a theory that says the reason Chiron was born a centaur is that when Rhea discovered his husband and Philyra copulating, Philyra turned into a stallion in order to run away.
ScyllaWP (スキュレー, Sukyurā?) is a Heroic Spirit mentioned in the "game" version of Fate/strange Fake as a Servant able to be summoned by the Player.

The transformed Scylla had then devoured six of Odysseus's subordinates.
SigmundWP (シグムント, Shigumunto?) was the King of FrakklandWP and the original possessor of Gram, "The Sword of the Sun" that would shatter against Gungnir and be reforged by his son Sigurd from it's fragments into a demonic sword and wield it as his own in the Völsunga sagaWP of Norse mythology. The incident of Gram "the sword of supremacy in the tree" from Northern Europe being pulled by him from the trunk of a mighty treeWP within the halls of King Völsung is a legend of a "sword of selection" originating with the sword Merodach. itself was the model for Caliburn, the sword in the stone, possessed by King Arthur.
Shinmen MunisaiWP (新免無二斎?) or Miyamoto Muninosuke was the father of Miyamoto Musashi, being a practitioner of martial arts, who served as an instructor of martial arts to the Shinmen HouseWP of lords of the Takayama Castle, and who received the name of Shinmen from his employer’s family. Shinmen Munisai built a dojo of JutteWP techniques in the Miyamoto village of the Yoshino district, and Musashi would later call himself “Miyamoto” due having this land as his hometown.

SuryaWP is the Indian god of the Sun, and the father of Karna, who inherited his father's Authority and radiance in the form of his armor Kavacha and Kundala, which is said to be nigh indestructible, even by the gods themselves.
Susanoo-no-MikotoWP is the younger brother of Amaterasu, a Japanese god representing the Moon. According to the Susanoo myth from the Kojiki and Nihon-shoki, it is said that Susanoo-no-Mikoto, who was exiled from Takamagahara, descended upon the province of Izumo, saved Kusanadahime who was offered as a sacrifice, and exterminated an enormous monster. That monster was Yamata-no-Orochi, a red-eyed demon with eight heads and eight tails───a gigantic snake that boasted of a length spanning eight valleys and peaks. Japan's greatest dragon of calamity. Susanoo-no-Mikoto defeated this large serpent (dragon) and obtained a divine sword from its tail. The sword's name is Kusanagi-no-Tachi.

He is implied to be one of the Divine Spirits that the Alien God used poured into Senji Muramasa.
TitaniaWP (ティターニア?) is the wife of Oberon in William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's DreamWP. She is a purely fictional character who Shakespeare invented. Shakespeare's inspirations for her were Mab, Diana, and Titan.
Even though Titania is a fictional character who Shakespeare invented, Oberon is searching for her. Even if it's a pipedream, he wants to meet Titania, the only person who could love the eccentric King Oberon.
As a composite of three fairies and deities, Titania would have the Divinity Skill.
One of the components of Kingprotea is Titania (Titan) (ティターニア (ティターン)?). It is unknown if there is any relation, or if this is the Titan that inspired Shakespeare.

VishnuWP is one of the three great gods of Indian mythology. Rama is a reincarnation of Vishnu, although they are still separate entities. Vishnu often sent messages to Rama in life when he had doubts or was lost. Appearing once in his dreams during Fate/Grand Order.

The unnamed Leader (リーダー?) (Voiced by Hiroki YasumotoWP) is the head of the group to which Keita Minato belongs. They are a street gang that is responsible for the abuse and rape of Fujino Asagami. He is the first to chronologically appear, abusing Fujino while she pleads for them to stop. After she regains her sense of pain after another member hits her with a baseball bat, she kills the leader with her reawakened Mystic Eyes as he attempts to stab her while raping her.
Shouichi Takagi (高木彰一?) is a murder victim of Fujino Asagami.

Kiyomi Kodama (児玉清美, Kodama Kiyomi?) is a member of Class 1-A in Kamamisaki High School.
Type Mars (タイプ・マーズ, Taipu Māzu?) is the Ultimate One of Mars (火星のアルテミット・ワン, Kasei no Arutemitto Wan?). It is not detailed in Notes.
Type Pluto (タイプ・プルート, Taipu Purūto?) is the Ultimate One of Pluto (冥王星のアルテミット・ワン, Meiōsei no Arutemitto Wan?). It was destroyed by the Six Sisters, who confronted Pluto to prevent it from entering the planet. The blood of Pluto covered the planet and became what is known as the "blood sky", the area above the ashen sea of clouds. It is believed that the clouds are a defensive membrane that the Six Sisters expanded, which has managed to keep the remaining two Aristotles, whose entry had been prevented, swimming like fish in the clouds.
Type Neptune (タイプ・ネプチューン, Taipu Nepuchūn?) is the Ultimate One of Neptune (海王星のアルテミット・ワン, Kaiōsei no Arutemitto Wan?). It has not been described.

Akemi Yamase (山瀬 明美, Yamase Akemi?) is the sister of Maiko Yamase that appears briefly in Kagetsu Tohya short story Daybreak, itself written from her sisters point of view.
Her presence in the final scene of Daybreak provides her sister the motivation to resist the hunger from chaos beasts in her inherited Reality Marble and gather them all inside her own body for Shiki to kill with his eyes.
Einnashe (アインナッシュ, Ainasshe?, also romanized as Ainnash) is the former seventh of The Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors before being slain by Arcueid Brunestud and being replaced by the Forest of Einnashe. He was a magus who transformed himself into a Dead Apostle. He was a specialist in hypnotism, able to use a Reality Marble which allowed for "memory remodeling", to manipulate the memories of everyone he encountered, including True Ancestor Arcueid Brunestud, with such precision to make them entirely forget his existence. The suggestions worked on the basis of "understanding", having told her "There is no Dead Apostle Einnashe", so Len's master was able to dive into Arcueid's subconscious to make the order impossible to recall, allowing the information on Einnashe to resurface. Arcueid killed Einnashe and his entire clan, and she carelessly left his body under a bloodsucking tree, which accidentally sucked the Dead Apostle's blood over time and transformed the entire forest into a Phantasmal Species, the second generation of the vampire Einnashe.
Eins (アインス, Ainsu?) is an agent of the Church sent to follow Ciel in subduing the Forest of Einnashe. He is over fifty years old. Merem Solomon shows up instead, claiming that he ate Eins. He says to report back that Eins was killed by the forest because he had reached a proper age for retirement anyway.
The unnamed creator of Len was a magus active eight hundred years before the modern era. He created Len as a familiar from infusing the leftover thoughts of a deceased human girl into the body of a dead cat. He helped Arcueid Brunestud defeat Einnashe.
Lord Rozay-en (ロズィーアン卿?) is a Dead Apostle. His faction is one of the largest in the Dead Apostle society. He transformed at the same time as his daughters. Due to the inability for Dead Apostles to procreate, he is troubled over the lack of a grandchild.
Narbareck (ナルバレック, Narubarekku?) is the ancestor of Narbareck. She was the co-founder of the Agency along with Michael Roa Valdamjong, and each director since then has always been one of her descendants. She knew of Roa's intentions to become a Dead Apostle in pursuit of his immortality, but said she would be unwilling to leave the Church and could not live with him. Despite the Burial Agency's goals of hunting heretics, she showed no plans to stop Roa's transformation, even going to say that she would tell her own child, "After around a hundred years, another newcomer Dead Apostle will appear. It is pointless to take notice of him, so ignore him." He then explained that would be unnecessary because the strongest True Ancestor sucking his blood would quickly turn him into the strongest Dead Apostle. In Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon- it is mentioned that she is a stigmaticWP.
Youichi Takada (高田 陽一, Takada Yōichi?) is a classmate of Shiki Tohno and Arihiko Inui. He is a "mysterious character" who occasionally shows up, described as "something you'd see in a manga." No details of his life are known, and he has a great personality. He rides a Honda Dream 50WP.
The Prince of Arishima (アリシマの君, Arishima no Kimi?) is an unnamed suitor seeking marriage with the Storyteller Girl due to the island she inhabits being the "hope of humanity." As with the previous fifteen suitors, he is given an impossible task used to define her view of love, so he leaves angrily without even attempting it. Even more impossible than normal, she asks for a fish from the Moon that obviously does not exist, and it would involve taking the one-way journey to the Moon without a method of return. She justifies it in that him showing up on a full moon without any tact makes it his fault. He is more humble towards the rejection in the manga adaptation, understanding that she has her own circumstances. He envies the peacefulness of the island, wishing that the world could reflect it.
Found on the first floor of the Old School Building
An ordinary student NPC you find in front of the caretaker’s office where Jinako has holed herself up.
He is good at imitating people... well maybe it’s better to say that imitation is his life. He has the rather odd ability to completely take up the role of characters from movies he has recently watched. This is why his lines, behavior, and mannerisms change from chapter to chapter. From chapter 5 onwards he disappears. The reason for this is explained by the NPC found in front of the school store.
[TL Note: His name Gou Tou is a word play on the Japanese pronunciation of 5 and 10]
Magic attribute that Einzbern magi are skilled in. They are specialized at the transmutation and creation of materials, that is, alchemy, using this attribute, and are highly skilled in the production of homunculi. Illya often uses magic, using the attribute of transferring, to move the consciousness of others to something else.
Family from Finland. Like Tohsaka, prefer jewels magic, which uses the attribute of conversion.
Old line even in the Magic Association. One of the families of the rulers, the Lords. Embodiments of perfectionism and aristrocracy.
One of the top magi in the magic world, known also by the name "Giver of All Sealing Designations" (or other way around?). Details are unknown.
One of the remarkable magi in history, affiliated with the Sea of Estray, the mysterious prototype of the Magic Association.
Hermes Silis Atlasia
Magus from one of the divisions of the Magic Association, the Atlas Institute, the association for the magi and alchemists of Egypt.
"Magic" making the impossible possible
True Magic. This is a different mystery than magery. Magi call the events that are unachievable by magery and science in that age True Magic. If that event could be achieved by time and resources, then no matter the difficulty, that event will not be seen as True Magic.
When the civilization of mankind was still young, all magery had been True Magic. But along with the advancement of science, the number of things that "could be done" by people had increased, and in exchange, True Magic diminished. The number of remaining "True Magics" in the modern era are extremely few, only 5. In "Fate/stay night", the achievement of one of these, the "Third True Magic", occupied the portion of the Grail War that could also be said to be its base.
All magi strive to arrive at "True Magic". Even if they can't reach it, the next generation will. Even the next generation can't reach it, then the one after....and like that, thus was weaved the history of trial and error of magery.
First True Magic
One of the oldest True Magics but the details about it are unknown. What it involves appears to be common knowledge to some magi of privileged rank. The user of the First has already passed away, but it is said that the person that would be his heir is still alive, barely.
Second True Magic
The True Magic that observes the infinite parallel worlds and travels between alternative worlds. Its user is Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg. With this magic, this man was able to create a jewel sword to absorb mana from the other worlds and a box that could store an immense amount of objects.
Third True Magic
Materialization of the soul, in other words, the magic that realizes true immortality. When accomplished, the practitioner will acquire an unlimited source of magical energy due to the soul becoming analogous to a perpetual motion machine. This is the Magic of the Einzbern lineage, and the Holy Grail War was established to acquire this Magic.
Fourth True Magic
Like the First True Magic, the details about it are unknown. What it involves hasn't been heard of either. But, the currently existing wizards, when pointing out to the Fourth True Magic, they'll all say "it is there for sure", and will agree that it exists. Also, they don't know the name of the user either.
Fifth True Magic
The True Magic that the Traveling Magician Aozaki Aoko inherited from her grandfather. Its nickname is "Magic Blue." The user Aozaki Aoko is average as a magus but displays transcendence with destruction. Because of this trait, there is a rumor that "Magic Blue" is also a True Magic involving destruction.
•The Five Magicians
There are five True Magics left in the current age. Those who use them are called "Magicians". The user of the First Magic, the oldest True Magic, is said to be dead, so the ones that are "still alive" are four. Let's say that "what had been possible only by True Magic" then becomes achievable by developments in magery or scientific technology. True Magic will be lowered to a mere "craft". Many True Magics were lost from the world like that. Then, can the power of "True Magic" only fade out hereon? No. The arrival of magi at existing or as of yet uncharted new Magic can allow new True Magic to be born and the numbers to be increased. Needless to say, this is far more difficult than a camel passing through the eye of a needle and finding one speck of a jewel in a desert. However, it's not impossible. The existence of the Wizards is proof of that. Thus, magi strive for the heights of True Magic. Believing they will one day reach the stars in the skies with their own hands, they continue dedicating themselves to their studies daily.
•Death of True Magic, Death of a Magician
A Magician, just like a magus, has a long life. If one uses life-prolonging magic, it wouldn't be impossible to live a few hundred, a few thousand years either. But, the "end" will come for sure. Then, would the death of a Magician mean the death of the True Magic he uses? No, it would not. True Magic will be passed on to the inheritor of the next generation and will not disappear. If True Magic were to die, it would only be when it could be realized by normal means.
Aozaki Touko [Person]
The Grand-class doll maker that has appeared in some form or other in a multitude of Type Moon works.
In the Case Files timeline, her Sealing Designation was removed when she made her appearance. However, since a certain ending in Fate/stay night has her described as “Sealing Designated,” that will probably only last for a few more years…
Between things like the special “box” she keeps inside for special occasions, to the crystal familiars she collects that fire beams like a certain little sister, in a story like Case Files where magi are the main attraction, her abilities become even more impressive.
After being given entirely free reign in the Iselma incident, she began to follow the Heartless case entirely out of a sense of curiosity. In the middle of the incident, however, the Neutralist faction commissioned her for a formal investigation. In normal circumstances she would have simply refused the assignment, but at that time the compensation she was supposed to receive from Iselma had been reduced to ash (by her own hands). Oh, what a travesty, doll maker!
Furthermore, due to circumstances, she already had experience visiting the Spiritual Tomb of Albion.
From the start, though only for a short time, the reason for the removal of her Sealing Designation was because Millieune Carillon, head of Sealing Designations and the one responsible for removing her Designation, and her were…
Nagato Tohsaka [Person's name]
The Tohsaka family head during the very first Holy Grail War, two hundred years ago.
He took part in the ritual at the request of Makiri Zouken and Justeaze.
Though traditionally the Tohsaka were a clan of secret Christians, one day a strange old man appeared out of nowhere and led them astray. Ever since then, they have devoted themselves to the world of sorcery.
With their contacts in the Holy Church and favorable treatment from the Association as disciples of a magician, they are in an enviable position.
It is due to their connections with both organizations that they were appointed the managers of Fuyuki.
At any rate, Nagato viewed sorcery and martial arts as equal, and was attempting to reach the Root via a state of mushin (no-mind) when he was recruited by the Einzberns and Makiri.
As you might expect from Rin's ancestor, he was prone to goofing up. Also, it seems that his daughter was the one with talent for sorcery, and ended up being far more useful in the construction of the Great Holy Grail than her father was.
Q: Shinji's mother is a "Carrier", what kind of pathogen is she carrying? Is she a "God's Holder"?
Q: Shinji's mother is a "Carrier", what kind of pathogen is she carrying? Is she a "God's Holder"?
A: No, nothing special of that sort. According to Zouken, she is the daughter of "a random third-rate magus".
[Note: "Carriers" retain remnants of mysteries from the Age of Gods as pathogens like bacteria and viruses. The Fraga McRemitz lineage of course is an exceptionally powerful example, Shinji's mother unfortunately is of the bottom of the barrel.]
Sakura: "If I were deleted, my successor would be an AI called Caren. ...She, er... has a problem in her algorithm, so she doesn't prioritize Masters' lives. She thinks ordeals are more important than living. If she were to be put in charge of the Masters' health care, Senpai's chances of survival would be, um..." Very low, or more like 3% by the first week at best. Hakuno: "I've never seen her, but she sounds like an outrageous AI."
High Level AI [Circumstances]
These are artificial lifeforms created in order to allow the holy Grail War to proceed smoothly.
They may seem the same as NPCs because they are manufactured beings, but High Level AI have firmly defined liberties and personalities, and they also are bestowed with a soul.
Due to the high cost of manufacturing High Level AI, they are not reset even after a Holy Grail War has finished.
They make an appearance filling standard character roles in each Holy Grail War.
High Level AI include:
Father Kotomine, whose duty is to supervise the Masters.
Sakura, whose duty is to manage and maintain the Masters’ health.
Disciplinary Chairperson, who keeps an eye out for bad conduct within the school.
Ms. Taiga, who directs the schedule each day.
The mysterious black panther Makiji.
The group of High Level AI also seems to include Sister Karen Caren, whose jurisdiction is carrying out the punishment of Masters, however she doesn’t seem to make an appearance in the Holy Grail War that the protagonist participated in.
Also, the memories that the High Level AI have obtained are unable to be deleted by themselves. No matter how sad and depressing a memory may be they are forced to keep it with them forever, and of course submitting their memories to Moon Cell is the reason that they exist.
"Velber" is the name of the predatory Umbral Star, also known as the Harvest Star. Like a comet, it flies on a set orbit through space, passing through the Milky Way galaxy once every 14,000 Earth years.
Its appearance resembles a crying eye.
It destroys all intelligent civilizations in its path, and in doing so, it consumes all digital data within reach.
The last time it passed through Earth's orbit, it annihilated virtually all sentient life on the planet, and plundered 80% of the Moon Cell's data.
It is thought to be a product of the same alien civilization that created the Moon Cell, although its form and purpose are obviously very different.
The true motive of the Umbral Star remains unclear, but during its previous attack on Earth, the Moon Cell did get a chance to analyze its structure.
Within Velber is a central part that could be considered its core, surrounded by layers of armor made of numerous "Arks of the Stars," individual space vessels.
If one considers the main body of Velber to be its central core, the surrounding portions are its self-made invasion weapons. Each layer of armor has its own distinct means of annihilating civilizations.
Velber's form strikes an optimal balance between offense and defense, and it has utilized that balance to wage victorious war against all sentient life in its path for eons.
The Ark of the Stars that carried the "White Titan" Altera to Earth was only one of three Arks that came to Earth in the previous cycle.
The other two, the "Big Brother" and "Little Sister" of Altera, are not mentioned in this game.
Arks of the Stars [Concept]
The containers that the predatory Umbral Star drops upon the domain that has been targeted as an object for harvest.
They are space vessels that lack the ability to navigate via spatial jumping, and are loaded with one fighting unit whose mission is to destroy civilization.
Altera’s Ark of the Stars is numbered “Velber 02.”
Each Ark has inherited the characteristics of a different alien civilization, so the contents of Velber 01 and Velber 03 are completely distinct organisms right down to their manner of existence.
[v] Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] III. spring song Animation Material - Kinoko and Takashi Q & A, p.34-35[T]Official Translation Q: Looking at Case Files Information, it sounds like the First Magic was made later than Third Magic? (Also I seem to like you sleep all day?)
Q: Looking at Case Files Information, it sounds like the First Magic was made later than Third Magic? (Also I seem to like you sleep all day?)
Nasu: HOW YOUNG!! Instead of sleeping all day, I spend almost everyday just sleeping!!
To return to the main topic, the situation is somewhat complicated. The Third Magic itself existed before the Common Era, but it disappeared alongside the End of the Gods (It cannot be recreated), and 1000 years later the one who recreated it was Juzteaze. The reason why the First is called the First is a very special reason to its special nature. Takeuchi: You know for awhile now, this corner have been asking us the Setting Information that we haven't revealed properly yet. How impressive. Nasu: This is probably the last time for this, so I decided to take all the question without resorting to just jokes, at least the ones I can right now.
Nasu: Old bloodlines teach their children his name, and even young families have heard that "in the Clock Tower the great magician who led the World of Magecraft into battle long ago is still alive". Those who rise to the rank of Cause may eventually hear of another Magician by the name of Yumina. Takeuchi: Is Zelretch still a vampire in Fate worlds? Nasu: No, but he's got something along the lines of immortality all the same.
Nasu's comment: The last witch, heir to a system of Magecraft unlike any other within the fiction of Type Moon. To her, the distinction between Magecraft and Magic is almost meaningless. Even making a world is within her ability. But then again, what is a witch? Sadly, you won't get an answer until next time. She has a cool and collected demeanor, but her girlish creativity makes her the number 1 dreamer in this work. Her mother named her Alice after the character in the "Alice in wonderland" book. Both mother and daughter are fairy tale characters. The fact that she barely shows any skin and yet still looks so erotic is an example of the Koyama Magic. The mannequin aura in her casual clothes is very strange. The penguin costume is simply cheating. That too is an example of the Koyama Magic.
Koyama's comment: It was easy to draw a cold and quiet beauty, but I found drawing the subtle differences in her expressions to be difficult. However Nasu-san's comment: "The inside of Alice is that of a child" solved that issue for me. From those early days to the character she is today, it is all connected. That was the biggest or second biggest paradigm shift during the production but ever since then she became dramatically easier to draw. Her school uniform is a slightly modified one from the Reien Academy which Touko also attended. And because I wanted to make use of Alice's slim body, I might have made it a little too tight.
1: My Lord, what precisely is the Abyss (深淵, Shinen?)?
2: Is there actually something further down than the Underworld?
There is. The World of Mesopotamia comprises of Heaven and Earth. That which here lies below the Earth known as the Underworld -- and deeper still there rests the Abyss.
The Abyss is an Ocean of Void (無の海, Mu no Umi?). It is from those dark waters that the God Apsu and the Goddess Tiamat manifested, crafting the World of Mesopotamia.
If it must be described, it is the Sea of Dawn (黎明の海, Reimei no Umi?), which existed before the creation of life.
Being that the God Enki has at present vacated his posting as the Administrator of the Abyss, were one to plunge into it now, there would be no returning.
It's the place where Lord Gilgamesh sought the Herb of Immortality (不老不死の霊草, Furou-Fushi no Reisou?), isn't it?
Aias [Person's name]
A hero who fought alongside Achilles during the Trojan War. There is both an Aias the Great and an Aias the Lesser, but neither of them met a decent end. The shield of Aias the Great is the famous “Rho Aias: Seven Rings that Cover the Fiery Heavens”.
Rho Aias [Noble Phantasm]
The Seven Rings that Cover the Fiery Heavens.
In Greek mythology, the shield used by the hero Aias during the Trojan War.
It was a bronze shield covered by seven layers of ox hide, and the only thing that proved capable of stopping the javelin of the great hero of Troy, Hector. (Though it managed to penetrate six layers of ox hide, the seventh layer was unbroken.)
Afterward, its fame spread, and its existence was eventually sublimed into a "conceptual armament" boasting absolute defensive power against thrown weapons.
It is the only defensive armament Archer can use proficiently.
The Rho Aias that protected Shirou's spellcasting during the finale of the Rin route was not something he projected himself, but was actually made by Archer who was watching the battle from a distance.

Introduced in the "Kiyohime Legend". She fell in love at first sight with the handsome monk Anchin, who requested for a single night's lodgings while on his way to a temple in Kumano. However, upon visiting Anchin late at night, Kiyohime was bluntly rejected. Nevertheless, Anchin promised to meet her again while on his way back from the temple in Kumano. However--
Level 3 Bond
Anchin broke his promise out of fear for Kiyohime and ended up running away without meeting her. Noticing that, Kiyohime felt into despair, grief and resentment over being betrayed, turned into a dragon and began to pursue him. Finally catching up at a temple, she burned Anchin to death while he was hiding inside a bell.
Level 4 Bond
There are no records of her having the blood of the Dragon Kind mixed in. There was only a persistent deep-rooted delusion towards the human she was deeply in love with.
...in other words, one could say that transforming into a dragon just with a "misconception" is an manifestation of her tenacity.

A fire-breathing great serpent. That is, a turnover into a dragon. If she is summoned as a Servant, this will last for only 1 turn, but the force of the dragon's breath is tremendous.
Since she seems to believe the Master is the reincarnation of Anchin, special care is required in managing her. If you lie to her even after being reminded that she does not want to be lied to, there is a chance she might come to take away your Command Spells. That aside, she is a fine bride with a good disposition and skillful in cooking.

However, with the slender arms of a frail and helpless woman such as myself, it would not come to the point of being useful. Alas, how regretful."

And yet, she is gallantly enduring it in order to please the Master. So, in order to also release her tension, you should surely praise that she looks good on a swimsuit.

The world’s sole and greatest consulting detective.
The crystallization of the concept of detective; the representative of “those who reveal”.
The protagonist of the stories that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in the 19th~20th Century, he is a detective who explains all enigmas and one of the ancestors of the “detectives” that appear on the many mystery novels of later years—--
Or so it is assumed.
But what is really the truth?

For argument’s sake, if he was really originated from the stories, then there is a possibility of not only Doyle’s novels but also its pastiches having been included... according to the Chaldea staff’s gossips.
Level 2 Bond
Thoughtful and yet dynamic. Bold and yet precise.
And also a calm, level-headed man.
No sort of enigma, crime and conspiracy can escape Holmes’ sight. Be that a fearsome murderer, an ancient curse, a monster of the dark night or a supranational secret society; he shall disclose them all--- and defeat them if necessary. By means of a sharp sword called truth.
That way of being has already exceeded the realms of men, and is already the embodiment of a “wise one”, “one who reveals”.

Learned an Oriental martial arts that is extremely real combat-oriented.
Other than employing striking techniques that combine this skill with boxing, Sherlock Holmes also have counters and grappling throws as his forte.
If the conditions are right, he can even employ a special move that is in par with the release of True Name of a Noble Phantasm, but...

"This is an Elementary Matter, My Friend"
Rank: B Type: Anti-Unit/Anti-World
Elementary, My Dear.
The Noble Phantasm that Sherlock Holmes acquired upon manifesting as a Servant. His Origin - “Elucidation” - sublimated as a Noble Phantasm.
Even if the enigma he faces is truly an existence that cannot be explained, clues and paths for reaching the truth will always “appear”.
Even if there was a treasure chest whose key has been lost, said key will turn out to be “not lost”, and would certainly be possible to locate it somewhere in the world.
(However, as expected, it will not suddenly appear in his hands. Either Holmes or his collaborators must find it, wherever it may be).
Level 5 Bond
Originally a constantly active-type of Noble Phantasm, but release of True Name is performed in “Fate/GO”.
Upon release of True Name, an unidentified “sphere” appears, emitting a dazzling light on the surroundings. It weakens the enemy camp and strengthens the ally camp. Even an against an unbeatable opponent, Holmes will discover a path to defeat him.
Also, its True Name is one of the famous words associated with Holmes, yet the first instance in which it was attributed to him was not on Doyle’s novels, but actually the stage play produced・scripted・starred by William Gillette. It has been said that Doyle praised the Holmes played by Gillete as “surpassing my novels”.
Incidentally, the common assumption is that Gillete conceived it based on Holmes’ “elementary” remark towards Watson from Doyle’s short story - “The Adventure of the Crooked Man”.
Heroic Spirit Holmes is the fake resemblance of Dr. Joseph Bell (his model), Doyle himself, and the world oldest detective, Vidocq---
Not. He manifest as the protagonist of a novel series (or so we are lead to believe by his behavior).
In the end, is the story of Sherlock Holmes a literary creation invented by Sir Doyle, or something written down by Dr. John H. Watson as a romantic tale about the real Holmes, or maybe even a blend between these two?
At the very least, Holmes himself should know this. But he never speaks of it himself, and constantly evades the subject whenever it comes up.
Class: Alter Ego
Noble Phantasm: Saraswati Meltout (Benzaiten's Five String Biwa)
Keyword: Crime ballet, composite divinity
Strength: E, Endurance: C, Agility: A+, Magic: A, Luck: B
Constitution of an Abuser: A, Melt Virus: EX, Riding: B
01 - Saraswati Meltout: Benzaiten's Five String Biwa
The Noble Phantasm that BB gave to this Alter Ego.
Originally, it was not an Anti-Unit but an Anti-Group, Anti-World Noble Phantasm. It was not something to be used in combat or by a warrior, but rather something used on a civilization with an established culture.
Meltlilith's honey sweetly melts not only the body but also the soul. This Noble Phantasm melts the community's good sense and morals to integrate it into a single unit resembling a colony.
Trampling and absorbing that slimified body, heart, and society is its original ability.
Its immense effectiveness against non-combatants oozes Meltlilith's nastiness.
Its ingredient is one of the Seven Deities of Good Luck—equated with three Munakata goddesses, Ugajin, etc.—Benzaiten.
This is the biwa of Benzaiten—who controls "things that flow", such as natural phenomena (among other things, water and wind), music and words, speech, poetry and prose—given form as a Noble Phantasm. The origin of Benzaiten is the river goddess of Hindu mythology, Saraswati. She was born from the god of creation Brahma, but she was unable to stand the passionate gaze of Brahma, who desired her as his consort due to her overwhelming beauty, and desperately ran from him; such account shows her to be a goddess who is timid when faced with love. Saraswati is a goddess who rules over the arts and academics, and after being worshipped as Benzaiten, she has gained authority over increase of wealth as well.
02 - Crime Ballet
Merely a battle style. The result of Meltlilith, who adores classical ballet, retuning herself: an arrangement of various offensive skills. She came to possess diverse powers by converting already completed stories/stages into skills.
Those references are quite diverse. Below are explanations for them.
"The Name of the Heel is the Cursed Sword Giselle": From the classical ballet "Giselle." Having fallen into despair from her beloved Albrecht's betrayal, Giselle uses his sword in a frenzied dance, during which she dies. Women who die before marriage become ghosts known as wilis. Giselle becomes one of the wilis, who capture men and dance them to death, but...
"Unforgivable Hilarion": From the classical ballet "Giselle." Hilarion, who deceived Giselle, is caught by the wilis and pays for this crime. He is not forgiven and without waiting for daybreak, they make him dance in ecstasy until he dies from exhaustion.
"Farewell, Albrecht": From the classical ballet "Giselle." Albrecht is taken prisoner by the wilis, but due to one of the wilis saving him, he keeps his life. When Albrecht, who was spared from death by exhaustion, raises his face, the form of the girl he most loved disappears like an illusion.
"The Siren Who Burns Entrails": From the classical ballet "The Prodigal Son." A country feudal lord's son, out of admiration for city life, runs away. There are many temptations lurking in the streets; the most extreme of which is the enchantress Siren, who corrupts men with her veteran wiles.
However, the lineage of these skills is merely a smokescreen. Crime Ballet points out how Meltlilith has been cheating.
To make herself invincible, Meltlilith overwrote a basic rule of the far side of the moon "loss of sense of time" into "loss of hit detection on Meltlilith".
Meltlilith's act of selfishly giving herself such privilege, not by training herself but by altering the rules of the world, is an exemplary criminal act.
03 - Composite Divinity
Alter Egos are High Servants created as complexes of Heroic Spirits.
BB accessed the Moon Cell's Servant Archives, chose goddesses compatible with the Ego from them, and reproduced the data. Alter Egos came into existence as complexes of goddesses.
Meltlilith is made of three goddesses.
The first is the pure virgin goddess Artemis of Greek mythology. Without fail, she shoots through, granting them disease and death, those who seek to attain magical energy behind ebb and flow of tides, in other words, linkage to the moon's movement.
The second is the cruciform snake staff which originates from Leviathan, who appears in the Old Testament, or maybe Lotan from Ugaritic mythology. It is a being with the same origin as the staff that Moses used to split the Red Sea and, at the same time, a symbol of the sea split by that staff. Its owner is granted a transformative property like that of water, enabling them to adapt to any situation. Furthermore, they would be able to change their form freely and could even take the shape of the target of their envy.
The third is the river goddess Saraswati of Hindu mythology. She holds the ability to control "things that flow", such as natural phenomena (among other things, water and wind), music and words, speech, poetry and prose. The timbre that flows from her can excite any emotion in the heart of the listener and, moreover, interfere with flow of electrons in a computer network.
01 - Constitution of an Abuser [A]
A skill that augments one's aggression in battle. It appears to be a positive skill, but the longer its owner stays in battle, the more their abusive disposition will grow, causing them to lose their usual composure. It's possible to say that this is just one step short of the skill that causes Berserkers to go insane.
The more one attacks, the stronger one becomes, but on the other hand, one's defensive abilities drop. With the added disadvantage of unconsciously lowering one's chances of escape, it can be said that this is a skill that had bad compatibility with the usually composed Meltlilith.
02 - Melt Virus [EX]
A unique power, called id_es, that the Alter Egos possess from their creation.
A cheat skill that evolved from "Absorption". The highest grade of energy drain. Draining, copying, and scaling down are all possible.
The drain process has two parts. First, the virus honey that is produced in Meltlilith's body is injected into the target and fuses parameters that will be stolen, "experience", "skill", "capacity", etc. After that, she absorbs, converts, and makes a part of herself the parameters that were liquefied by the virus.
As long as it has a form, regardless of whether it is organic or inorganic matter, she can drain; however, things without shape... things like spiritual nature and skills can be fused but converting them into "her own things" is difficult, so it seems she can only use them as simple nutrients.
For this reason, what Meltlilith mainly makes into "her own things" are primarily "experience" and "capacity".
Utilizing this ability, Meltlilith plans to augment "her own transcription". She created a transfer-type of virus that would melt the entire content of an electronic body and transform it into herself... Meltlilith.
03 - Riding [B]
Riding ability. As long as it is an animal that exists in reality, even if it is a wild animal, she can ride it. Usually, knight-type Servants, such as Saber or Rider, would have this skill but...
Why Meltlilith possesses this skill is something best left to the imagination.
01 - Neurological Disorder
Neurological disorder: Humans possess five sense--sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch--and use those five sensors come to recognize the outside world and, as a result of that, they come to comprehend their own state of being.
At their foundation, humans come in contact with the world through these passive senses. By unconsciously using the excellent sensors known as the five senses, they accept the ordinary. However, in the case that any of the five senses degrade, the consciousness must actively face toward the outside world. That which was passive becomes active.
For example, someone who has lost their sight will deliberately specialize in their remaining four senses and will utilize them as even greater sensors. Ironically, they will come to function as someone whose perception is several times superior to that of a person who has all five senses.
In regards to Meltlilith's five senses, her sense of touch has deteriorated. Especially her hands--she's almost completely lost sensation in her fingers, and for that reason, she has become proactive in her relationship with the outside world.
It is thought that even her interest in causing others pains ultimately arose "because just by myself, I cannot feel the existence of other people."
This is a digression, but because of the clumsiness of her fingers caused by this, despite her hobby of collecting figures, she cannot immerse herself in assembling garage kits. Currently accepting applications for a skilled assembler!
02 - The End of Pleasure
The end of pleasure: The ego born from BB's "service requirement" and "pleasure". The type of abnormally lovely girl who cannot help but stir up a desire to protect her in men—is what she was, but possibly due to the effect of her skill that continuously steals opponents' abilities, she currently possesses a belligerent personality.
Although she tries to take in other people, she desires neither understanding nor sympathy from them because Meltlilith does not understand others' feelings.
Meltlilith does not need others. She does not understand love or dreams. If she acquires "love" somehow, she would probably dedicate everything to serve its target.
To the self-sufficient Meltlilith, the target's feelings are not worth considering. She would declare in her oppressive manner that her feelings are correct.
With no intention of discussing together (Already, I love you so much that I don't feel the need), with no desire to touch each other (Already, that amount of pleasure is unsatisfactory), with no thought about telling them she wants them to love her (Already, such mutual understanding is unnecessary).
Truly, a domineering Ego full of no's and not's. Beneath that condescending attitude and oppressive manner, there is not a speck of doubt or hesitation, only overly pure "feeling of love".
Meltlilith has not noticed—what is truly at the foundation of herself, who is an incarnation of "self-pleasure".
At Meltlilith's core is "devotion to the person she has fallen in love with".
Repeatedly raising her level with draining, trying to control the Moon Cell—all were done to offer supreme pleasure to her loved one.
Protecting her loved one → taking them into herself → living forever with them taken into herself (even if she is completely changed to the point where she doesn't understand herself). She has determined that to be the supreme love she will offer to her loved one.
From Meltlilith's such perspective, even BB and Lip are nothing more than "foreign matter that think they want to be also saved".
... However, those feelings are far too closed. To her, who saw only her own feelings as definite, whose connection with the outside world was lacking, "falling in love with another" was itself a fatal defect.
Karna, Son of the Sun God
Karna, the invulnerable hero of the Indian epic Mahabharata. His personality is cold and unforgiving. Although conversing with him may give the impression that he is indecisive and somewhat boring, in reality he is always deep in thought and has a loyal heart. He gives an impression of being cold and cruel because he believes that most things and events are “normal”, and therefore he does not interfere. Due to this characteristic, he does not really have negative emotions such as hatred and jealousy. Because his behaviors target people’s “true nature that should not be put to words”, he is disliked by many.
Karna was born between a human mother Kunti and the Sun God Surya. As proof of being the son of Surya, he was given a golden armor that granted invulnerability. However, Kunti abandoned Karna and became the queen of King Kuru. Not knowing who his mother was, Karna grew up with a low social status. However, he soon made his existence known to the world by becoming the honored guest of the Royal House Kauravas, who were hostile to King Kuru. Karna participated in the wars around the borders and fought on an equal footing with Arjuna, son of Kunti and Thunder God Indra. Karna eventually fell in battle after being robbed of his golden armor by Indra, suffering many curses, and losing all of his allies. He died in the hands of his half-brother Arjuna. However, he did not hate anyone and accepted his death.
Noble Phantasm: EX
Discernment of the Poor: A
Insight to see through the opponent's character and attribute. He will not be deceived by excuses and deceptions from words. It expresses the power to grasp the true nature of the opponent possessed by Karna, who was blessed with the opportunity to inquire about the life and value of the weak due to being someone without a single relative.
Magic Resistance: C
Negates Magecraft with an aria of two verses or lower. Cannot defend against large-scale Magecraft such as High-Thaumaturgy or Greater Rituals. However, when receiving the effect of the golden armor Noble Phantasm, it will not be limited to this.
All vehicles and all beasts excepting those of Phantasmal Beast and Divine Beast-rank can be freely operated. His figure driving a war chariot and running across the battlefield is depicted in the Mahabharata. Its rank is high enough to have aptitude for the Rider Class.
Uncrowned Arms Mastership: N/A
Arms competency that was not recognized by others due various reasons. To the opponents, the rank of his sword, spear, bow, Riding and Divinity appears to be one degree lower than what it actually is. If his true name is revealed, this effect will be terminated.
Mana Burst (Flames): A
The power to put magical energy into weapons. In Karna's case, blazing flames become magical energy to dwell in the weapon used. This Skill is usually active and all the weapons that Karna grasps receive this effect.
As the son of the Sun Deity Surya and having united with Surya after death, Karna possesses the highest Divine Spirit aptitude. This Divine Spirit aptitude exhibits high defensive power in regards to sun deity-lineage's Heroic Spirits of Divinity B or lower.
Kavacha & Kundala: O Sun, Become Armor
The golden armor and earring given by Karna's mother, Kunti, who felt fear in becoming an unmarried mother and prayed to Surya to protect her son. A powerful defensive-type Noble Phantasm that emits the radiance of the sun. Because it's light itself taken shape, it is difficult to destroy even to the gods. It is integrated with Karna's body.
Brahmastra: O Brahma, Wrap the Earth
An Anti-Army, Anti-Country Noble Phantasm granted to Karna by Parashurama of the Brahmin. If his Class is Archer it will be a bow, while under other Classes it will manifest as a different projectile weapon. By calling upon the name of the god Brahma it will pursue the enemy and surely hit, but because of a curse it cannot be used on opponents of greater ability than himself.
Brahmastra Kundala: O Brahma, Curse Me
Karna's hidden Noble Phantasm. His trump card. The projectile weapon Brahmastra is bestowed with the sweltering heat effect of Karna's attribute and then fired. The Brahmastra, which already had a wide effective range to begin with, has its effective range further widened and its power exceptionally raised. Its performance is to the point of being compared to nuclear weapons.
Vasavi Shakti: O Sun, Abide to Death
An one-shot only spear of light that takes down even gods. A spear of mortality made out of lightning. When Indra snatched away the golden armor, since Karna's posture was much too noble, he thought that it had to be rewarded. Manifested by converting the golden armor, in exchange of a tremendous defensive power, a spear with a powerful "anti-god" performance is equipped.
01 - Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
An attack on the world by BB in control of the Moon Cell.
Also called the spiritron imaginary pit.
A World Purge through event rewriting that makes maximum use of the EX skill "Conception of All Animals" BB has acquired.
The goddess who is the mother of earth mother goddesses that created earth is, in other words, the 'root' that created all creation. This anti-world Noble Phantasm outputs that information through an ultra-precise 3D printer and crushes the present world with the world the user desires.
The space eroded by BB becomes imaginary space and a curse that consumes reality. "CCC", as the name suggests, is a cursed pit that bores out reality.
In addition to scattering all objects inside on an atomic level and reconstructing them, it is capable of overwriting and reprinting information in fields such as luck and coincidence. While theoretical, it is also thought possible to distort the time axis by interfering with gravitational fields and rewrite the law of cause and effect.
When used in combat, BB's familiars, the shapeshifters, engulf the target and, after turning into a sphere, are wiped out of existence along with the target and the whole dimension.
Normally, a structure in which sense of values can be shared cannot be created in the Far Side of the Moon, which is an imaginary space. What established BB's internal world as the Sakura Labyrinth was the power of this Noble Phantasm.
02 - Advanced Level AI
Artificial intelligences configured according to their programs.
In this age, they are treated as things that "function as programs", but "do not exist as actual beings". In other words, things that "are" right in front of your eyes but "are not". They are merely mechanisms for smooth progression of human lives.
The same applies in the SE.RA.PH. They are virtual lifeforms that are created along with the commencement of the Holy Grail War and disposed along with its conclusion.
Humanoid virtual lifeforms at the SE.RA.PH include NPCs that perform single objectives, AIs who have been granted capabilities for self-judgement, and advanced level AIs who have been entrusted with capabilities for self-judgement and management of sections.
Advanced level AIs are beings made to efficiently promote the Moon Cell's primary objective of "human observation". As perfect reproductions of humans, they have been programmed with even souls, but the souls only "exist" and their contents are colorless.
Virtual lifeforms made in the SE.RA.PH are reset with each round of the Holy Grail War. NPCs and AIs return to zero, but advanced level AIs retain just their personas while their records are reset—as if they never existed.
When the Holy Grail War is over, the only one left alive is the Master standing at the top. This applies not only to the Masters but also to the virtual lifeforms made in the SE.RA.PH.
It appears that BB, like Sakura, is an advanced level AI entrusted with management of Masters' health. However, as she is rampaging for reasons unknown, the methods of "managing the Masters" have become extreme.
03 - Khakkhara of Domination
The teacher's pointer that BB carries.
A device that lets her make full use of her authority as an advanced level AI. Although limited to the Far Side of the Moon, this allows BB to modify the spiritron laws within the SE.RA.PH.
"Ten Crowns of Domination" worn by the Beast of Babylon converted into a teacher's pointer.
This is the male principle corresponding to the female principle of the seven-headed beast, and its true nature is a phallus (erect rod).
The symbol of the king of the world who was granted throne and authority by a great dragon and received the right to, for 42 months, spit out as many insolent words as desired and desecrate all things.
The beast's heads were the seven hills of the Roman Empire... Capitolium, Palatium, Aventinus, Esquilinus, Caelius, Quirinalis, Viminalis. In other words, they meant the Roman Empire itself, and the ten horns symbolized the emperors... Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasianus, Titus, Galba, Otho, Vitellius.
01 - Golden Grail [EX]
The golden grail that BB owns. Also called the Holy Grail.
A negative grail that grants its owner's impudent and selfish wishes.
The grail held by the great whore of Babylon who appears in the Revelation to John. Though it is a fake Holy Grail, it is for that reason that it has become a "genuine" Holy Grail that grants the desires of humans regardless of right or wrong.
To the Christians who considered honorable poverty a virtue at that time, a grail molded from a symbol of wealth like gold no doubt had connotations of corrupt wealth, avarice, and vanity of trying to adorn oneself.
As the grail held by the great whore of Babylon who personifies the Roman Empire, this grail clearly symbolizes treasures on earth, which is the inverse of the Christ's words "Do not store up treasures on earth."
"I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns."
According to the Book of Revelation, this is the description of the beast of destruction that appeared in the Holy City and the woman straddling that beast. A huge beast with sevens heads like a hydra appeared from the sea and landed at the Holy City. This beast and the woman, while two, are as one, and it is impossible to think of them separately.
As the woman was said to give birth to all evil, those who were imprudent or greedy could not resist her allure and became corrupted by that grail.
On a side note, the red Saber who calls herself the emperor was regarded the same as this beast and viewed as an enemy by the believers after her death.
02 - Self-Modification [EX]
A skill that allows restructuring of oneself.
AIs made by the Moon Cell were given an absolute command: "You must not improve own function."
However, BB, who escaped from that yoke due to her breakdown, began to expand her own functions. To boost her calculation power, she preyed upon/disassembled NPCs, AIs, and finally, Servants with black noise, then used as her own memory.
Though they are like appendix building additions that do not heed self-collapse, as the result, BB has changed into a hyper level AI with enormous capacity.
That condition resembles a city on reclaimed land that continues to build while submerging or Frankenstein's monster.
03 - Potnia Theron [EX]
Conception of All Animals.
The authority of the goddesses that BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the mooncell.
It embodies the power of all creation possessed by the mother goddesses—originating from a forgotten goddess approximately 8000 years ago (the goddess of Çatalhöyük) and branching to Tiamat and Cybele, Ishtar, Inanna, Anat, Astarte, Gaia, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Demeter, Athena, etc.
Many are depicted with mural crowns. This is because many of these goddesses were also guardian deities of cities.
The symbols of this authority include holes opening the earth and the sky (caves and the moon), whirling tides and waterspouts of the sea, calderas of the volcanoes, etc., and from these, evils that bring all manners of death are birthed. However, after these evils have spread death, they promise certain good harvest and fertility. This authority is none other than the power of bringing death as well as giving life.
The earth mother is worshipped by the people and protects them as a guardian deity, but at the same time, she is the very sacrifice that nurtures them with crops born from her body and beasts of the fields and the forests.
The earth mother nurtures men with her flesh and blood, kills men as time passes to restores herself with her own nourishment, and once again nurtures men with her restored flesh and blood.
This process is the cycle of the food chain, and this cycle of life and death can be said to be the true nature of the earth mother. With this authority, most of the goddesses gave birth to countless monsters and giants, posing threats to gods and men, or they gave birth to heroes, thus protecting people.
As representative examples, Tiamat and Gaia became threats, while Hera is a mother of heroes.
Those born on this earth cannot defy the authority of the mother goddess, as that would mean rebelling against the very system of life. However, when they leave this earth, head to space, and end the childhoood as intelligent lifeforms, they will have broken this authority.
The official name of this stage.
Formerly just an imaginary number space for storing malignant information, "this place" was established as a real number space in the present, past, and future by the fact that BB had reached the Moon Cell core. It was reconstructed by her hands into the “far side of the moon” where even Masters can exist.
With the power of the primordial goddess at hand, BB succeeded in quantifying the "nothingness" before the birth of life. She transformed into the master of the imaginary number space where both time and space and ambiguous.
Although the Moon Cell cannot be hacked no matter how much time is taken, BB took over it by placing herself in "unlimited time".
02 - The remnants of peaceful days
During the preliminaries, when Kiara liberated her free will, she was unable to control that status condition and went into overload.
Since NPCs can only do routine work, they ignored self-destructing Sakura as something "non-existent", and since the Moon Cell's check only takes place at the end of the day in the preliminaries, Sakura was at risk of termination.
Witnessing this condition, [Kishinami Hakuno] called out to her, "Are you okay."
The observation that she "is here" by another let Sakura recover the unconscious on the verge of termination, and due to the nursing afterwards, she gained an ego that clearly "wanted to be here". Her self-termination was averted.
What happened afterwards no longer need to be said.
When the next day comes, everything will be erased by the Moon Cell. Wanting to continue this one day miracle, Sakura used her advanced AI privilege to repeat "the day she came to know [Kishinami Hakuno]" for 69 days.
However, as days passed, Sakura became distressed by her self-contradiction as an AI and the facts surrounding [Kishinami Hakuno].
"Masters participating in the Holy Grail War will all die except one. No, to begin with, [Kishinami Hakuno] is..."
Sakura continued to be distressed by her selfish desire to continue the loop for eternity and her feelings for [Kishinami Hakuno]. In conclusion, she chose to seal the 69 days worth of memory... the "love" she acquired, so she could return to being a normal AI. AIs cannot delete records. Because of that, she moved the memory to a backup frame to reset herself.
She believed that to be the most correct choice for [Kishinami Hakuno].
But even if recollections of the mind are lost, memories recorded by the body live on. Though she should have forgotten everything and returned to being a normal AI, she was shaken by unidentified emotional values every time she talked with [Kishinami Hakuno].
Meanwhile, the backup to whom the memories were transplanted couldn't tolerate herself like that, and she decided to act as BB the rebel who destroys the Moon Cell's system for a certain objective then made her move.
The timing when she seized the Far Side of the Moon was "the Holy Grail War: the end of fifth round ~ before the start of the sixth round". The four who were not eliminated yet—[Kishinami Hakuno], Leo, Rin, and Rani—and the irregular, Jinako, were kidnapped to the Far Side in the middle of the Holy Grail War while they were still alive.
Masters Matou Shinji, Gatou, and Julius were moved to the imaginary space "0.00001 seconds before" the moment the firewall terminated them after their defeat from the Holy Grail War, prolonging their instants of life.
In either case, C. C. C. is a dream by BB. If the dreamer disappears, the world ought to return to the reality where nothing happened.
On a yet another side note, everyday scenery of the prologue that [Kishinami Hakuno] saw in the nightmare was an artificial paradise modeled on the discarded 69 days.
After pulling [Kishinami Hakuno] to the Far Side, BB placed the digital body in the old school building, put it in a deep sleep, and locked them in an unwaking dream.
Normally, they would have lived peacefully in the looping everyday life, but the strong bond with their Servant or [Kishinami]'s will rejecting the peaceful everyday caused cracks in the artificial paradise, and [Kishinami Hakuno] came to notice the abnormality.
To put [Kishinami Hakuno] in a deep sleep once more, BB reset the school building and tried to remake the dream, but [Kishinami Hakuno] escaped the reset as well and leaped into an even deeper part of the imaginary space.
It was a bottom deeper than the bottom of Id. "Death of the collective unconscious" beneath the unconscious. What saved [Kishinami Hakuno] who leaped into a region even BB cannot reach was the voice of the Servant whose fate was shared with theirs.
Thus, the contract was sealed, and [Kishinami Hakuno] woke up in the old school building left in the Far Side.
User: Gilgamesh A divine sword from Greek mythology. One of the Noble Phantasms owned by Gilgamesh. It has a special shape similar to a scythe, with the cutting edge on the inside of the blade. It also has the power to negate the “undying” attribute. The hero Perseus received the sword from Hermes, so that he could exterminate the snake-haired witch Medusa. The legend goes that Perseus approached Medusa – who would turn everybody that looked at her into stone – by using a mirrored shield, and then cut off her head with Harpe while she slept. Because Perseus returned Harpe to Hermes once the task was completed, it can be considered an “Anti-Medusa” weapon.

02 - "Nursery Rhyme"
Nursery Rhyme is not a hero in the traditional sense. Rather, it is a general term for any picture book that has managed to manifest itself into a corporeal existence.
The genre itself, deeply loved by the children of England, came into being as a reaction to the half-voiced dreams of the young and eventually emerged as a Servant who came a champion of the innocent. It formed the foundation for perhaps the best known work from the author known as Lewis Carroll. His book "Alice in Wonderland" began as a series of simple rhymes told to the daughters of a family friend while rowing down the River Thames on a warm summer's day.
The Servant Nursery Rhyme is actually a type of Reality Marble. It projects the true feelings of its Master and creates a pseudo-servant in a form imagined by the one who summoned it.

01 - Kazikli Bey: Fortress of Impalement
This is this Servant's Noble Phantasm and is synonymous with the Servant himself, who in his previous life was known as Kazikli Voyvoda, or the Impaler Prince. The tortures and horrors released by the multitude of spears that his Noble Phantasm summons inflicts damage equivalent to the immorality and depravity found in the soul of the targeted opponent and can be seen as a form of divine punishment.
During the time of his reign as monarch of Wallachia, Vlad instituted a number of somewhat oppressive and punitive policies aimed at the lower levels of the nobility whom Vlad felt had seriously undermined and destabilized his country with their excessive corruption and political maneuverings. In addition to laws designed to curtail their excesses, he also carried out an unprecedented number of impalings amongst the noble classes.
While many believed he was simply trying to reduce the number of rivals and opponents to his rule, Vlad was shockingly ruthless in his approach to justice, targeting commoners and the upper-class with equal viciousness. His kingdom became a land of horrors, culminating with the 1459 impaling of an emissary from the Ottoman Empire, who survived on the stake for several days before finally succumbing.
02 - Vampire...?
A demon said to feed on blood.
A being some claims to be of the undead, and painted as evil and ungodly by those whole hold to a religious view of the world. In addition to the need to feed on the blood of humans, creatures such as this also are seemly immortal and are able to control lesser demons.
03 - Dracula
Means "Son of the Dragon."
His father was a member of the Order of the Dragon, an organization that originated during the rise of the Holy Roman Empire, and he took this name from his father's legacy.
Aegis of the Divine [A+++]
An ability bestowed upon those who have sacrificed themselves for what they believe to be greater good. Although obstinately a form of divine protection, it does not necessarily mean that one has received the blessing of the gods. Instead, it is a manifestation of one's absolute faith and self-righteousness...
However, the more powerful this ability becomes, the more detrimental the effect it has on a person's sanity and personality.
Gives one the strength and vitality to escape from even the most dire of situations. It also gives one the ability to successfully retreated to allied territory if defeated.
Seraphic Monstrosity [A]
Dracula. Once the name of a proud family worthy of honor and respect, it is now a name given to a monster whose past has been grossly distorted as a result of his actions in his mortal life. The influence of perception has transformed both his abilities and appearance.
Also, this skill cannot be altered or removed.
01 - Character Background
Considered a heroic figure in Romanian history, he was seen as a noble warrior who rebuilt and maintained the kingdom of Wallachia as well as the shield of Christendom against the threat of the Ottoman Empire.
The name Dracula was the most common appellate used when referring to Vlad III during his reign as King of Wallachia. Originally a duke appointed to his office under the auspices of the Eastern Roman Empire, he adopted many of the customs of that country's court, including signing all documents in the early Roman style. The name itself comes from his father's (Vlad II) enrollment into the Order of the Dragon, a monarchial chivalric order founded by Sigismund of Hungary, who later ascended to the throne of the Holy Roman Empire. His father took the surname Dracul and Vlad III appended the "a", signifying that he was "the son of Dracul."
The Order of the Dragon's primary purpose was to defend the Christian world from the increasing influence and might of the Islamic Ottoman Empire, a calling that Vlad III enthusiastically embraced. It is believed by some that he took the name Dracula not only in honor of his father, bus as also as an announcement of his intentions of safeguarding all of Christendom against the Turks as the "Son of the Dragon."
In order to protect Wallachia from what he considered the ravaging Turkish hordes, he instituted a series of conscriptions and laws that almost destroyed the noble class and stability of his realm, as well as resorted to measures considered to be beyond monstrous even by the somewhat barbaric standards of the time. His cruelty and savagery was such that at one point he had over 20,000 captured enemy soldiers impaled in an effort to intimidate his foe. In the end he was betrayed by the nobles he had turned his back on and was assassinated at the age of 46 years old.
02 - "Dracula"
Known as one of the greatest monsters of modern history, the inevitable distortions and exaggerations of scholars throughout the centuries cannot wholly cover the well-documented horrors and atrocities committed by his direct commands. Although he is seen as a hero and savior by some, the lengths he went to preserve the independence of Wallachia and to repel the Turk will forever paint him as an incarnation of satanic evil on Earth.
This was the year in which he first used impaling not only as punishment, but also as a form of psychological warfare in order to slow down the advances of the Turkish invasion into the western kingdoms. With a force of just 10,000 troops, Vlad III made extensive use of what are now known as guerilla and scorched-earth tactics to harass and weaken the enemy forces, which at one points consisted of over 150,000 soldiers. At one point, he drove his forces into Carpathian Mountains after annihilating the Turkish forces surrounding the city of Bucharest.
The scene that the main Turkish force encountered when they finally arrived to help the city was one of nightmares. Surrounding the entire city was a vast forest comprised entirely of impaled soldiers, some 20,000 in total. It is said that the lines of impaled Turks stretched for kilometers in every direction. The sight of their comrade's bodies impaled on stakes in combination with the overpowering stench of decay broke the morale and spirit of the Turkish army. Even Mehmed II , son of the Turkish Sultan and known as the conqueror, was shaken and ordered his forces to withdraw, saying the following:
"I fear no man alive, but even I cannot hope to fight the devil."
In the end, Vlad III rationalized his brutality and his lack of remorse gave him a battle vision far superior to those he faced. However, his actions made him a pariah amongst even his supporters and his life came to a tragic end due to betrayal.
On an unrelated note, many military historians theorize that Vlad's actions against the Turks are the first time that guerilla warfare tactics made their appearance and that they were the reason for his many successes against a demonstratively superior force. If one is to have so much success defending something only to be repaid with treason and assassination, isn't it reasonable to assume that one would go insane from rage and disappointment?
Q: There's three ranks for magic beasts, but what's the most famous of the Divine Beasts, the greatest of those? Dragons are special beings with the alignments of the three types, but are there any currently existing dragons that can interfere with the real world in the world of Fate?

Comment for Alexander Takeuchi: We are the King of Conquerors! Because he can be said to be the ultimate key person in F/Z, a lot of time and energy went into his design. He has a detailed and complex design, so he became a very difficult character to draw. Urobuchi: If 5th Rider is a racing car, then 4th Rider is a heavy tank, Which one would you choose to take a ride on? Takeuchi: Actually, the heavy tank-ness of the Gordius Wheel is cool. But it can't enter a sewer at all. Urobuchi: At one point, that Noble Phantasm was designed to have the ability to change its size at will by substituting its parts and transforming. Even then, though, the sewers would be too narrow.
Without the mantle, you get an extremely intimate feeling from him. The King of Conquerors in the style of commoners. [Takeuchi]
Rider: Bwahahaha Cast it all off!!
Waver: Why even me...
Maybe it would be better to put him in a loincloth. [Takeuchi]
Initial designs. I'm pretty pleased with the guy in the center with the three feelers. [Takeuchi]
An Extra class created by Heartless in order to summon imposters and body doubles.
Within the story of Case Files, it refers to Iskandar’s body double, who ignores the Ionian Hetairoi. Her Personal Skill “He is Another Iskandar (Fake)” grants her some of Iskandar’s Personal Skills, as well as a distorted version of the Noble Phantasm Gordius Wheel, a sight that shook El-Melloi II to his core on their first meeting.
Her true identity is that of Hephaestion’s younger twin sister, born at the behest of the King of Conquerer’s mother Olympias, to protect him for his entire life.
Though it may be hard to imagine her as a body double for a man like Iskandar who was over two meters tall, her role as a body double was a magical one.
As such, she had no name.
After separating from Olympias, Iskandar tried to give her one numerous times. Since doing so would weaken the spells redirecting curses from him to her, however, she rejected each time. Not only that, but for the sake of protecting Iskandar from various forms of curses and magecraft, she developed numerous counter-intelligence schemes. That is why the descriptions left behind about Iskandar don’t match the appearance of the Servant Iskandar at all.
The Class name of Faker is, in a way, the first name she ever received.
As she didn’t leave behind any anecdotal stories in history, her status as a Servant is rather weak, but she still boasts a considerable and comprehensive combat ability. This results not just from having powerful skills or Noble Phantasms, but from the wide variety of physical and magical options available to her in combat, and her ability to keenly recognize which of those options is optimal for each situation.
Just as she said during the story, “Being a warrior is a question of both body, mind, and spirit.” Her love of battle and the skills that saw her through numerous battlefields made it possible for her and Heartless to break through the Spiritual Tomb of Albion alone.
Despite how much of a mismatched pair the two of them may seem, her partnership with Heartless is one she finds unexpectedly comfortable.
Though it was never discussed in detail, the way Heartless’ life changed after being betrayed by his students and her unwillingness to forgive the betrayal she suffered in the Wars of the Diadochi demonstrated a clear unity of values betwen them.
The Dionysus that Faker references normally corresponds to the god of wine Bacchus, but the magecraft she uses actually points to the maddened Zeus himself. In short, an omnipotent god gone mad. Abandoning reason and embracing infinite chaos is truly suitable as a source for magecraft.
Of course, as one who serves the god of wine, nevermind Iskandar, she regularly drank all of his close friends and advisors under the table.
In addition, the reason she rejects the summons of the Ionian Hetairoi comes from the following flow of events. “She is called by Iskandar” ⮕ “Immediately before being summoned, she is given the fundamental knowledge from the world about the Wars of the Diadochi” ⮕ “Before the summoning is completed, she rejects it.” A summoned Heroic Spirit, if not from the Holy Grail then from the World itself, receives knowledge about the present era. In the case of Ionian Hetairoi, it is the latter that provides the information.
Were she to be summoned again as a Servant, as usual she would forget everything that happened during the course of these incidents. But what if she were summoned as part of the Army of the King? What if she were summoned in a Singularity that ignored the correct chronology of history, or by a system completely different than the one set up in Fuyuki?
The answer will remain a mystery until such an event occurs.
Wheel of Demonic Heaven [Noble Phantasm]
Originally, the Noble Phantasm of Iskandar, Gordius Wheel.
Due to the skill “He is Another Iskandar (Fake)” that Faker possesses, she has also gained this Noble Phantasm. However, while Iskandar’s chariot is pulled by a pair of divine bulls, hers is pulled by magically animated bone dragons.
Compared to the original Gordius Wheel, it’s Rank and power have diminished considerably, but in exchange it is capable of many more things. One is the autopilot feature shown in Grand Roll. In addition, if Faker pours her own magical energy into it, it is capable of exhibiting a level of power similar to the original Gordius Wheel.
The name “Hecatic” is derived from the goddess Hecate, from whom Faker’s lineage of magecraft from the Age of Gods finds its source. Though faint, there is some connection to the Caster of the Fifth Holy Grail War.
Archer of “Black” [Servant]
One of the Servants of the Black camp. His true name is Chiron. He is a centaur—a half-human-half-horse race, and he is a famous great sage in Greek myth.
He has a calm and gentle personality, but though he treats his Master with respect, he won’t hold back on advice if it’s for the sake of his Master. He never scorns or despises others regardless of whether they are enemy or ally, and he is exceptionally calm among the intense and passionate heroes of Greek myth. He acted as the strategist of the Black camp and continued to support his camp day and night right until he took part in the final battle.
Usually, centaurs are considered both as great huntsmen who effortlessly use bows and arrows while running with their horse legs and as savage monsters who would steal anything and everything. It seems Chiron alone is regarded as a “sage” that stands out as an exception among them.
Chiron was born from Cronus, father of the head god Zeus, and Philyra, the goddess of a certain island. However, because Cronus had copulated with her while she was turned her into a horse, Chiron was born as a half-human-half-horse centaur. (There is also the theory that they were attacked by Cronus’ wife Rhea while they were in the middle of copulating and Philyra turned into a stallion in order to run away.) Balking at the idea of giving milk to a monster like Chiron, Philyra changed her form into that of a linden tree.
Though he was never loved by his mother and father, Chiron became a sage that excelled in all forms of knowledge as he grew up. This is not necessarily unrelated to the fact that his mother’s name “Philyra” means linden tree. The leaves of linden trees can be used as restoratives, and the tree bark can be used in divination or as written boards.
After becoming an adult, Chiron began to rear the “future heroes” who implored for his tutelage from all over Greece. Besides Heracles and Achilles, the heroes who received his teaching include those like Asclepius, who later became the god of medicine, and Castor, who was sublimated as the Gemini constellation. Jason, the leader of the Argonauts who enticed Medea, is also one of his students.
On a certain day, someone shot a poison arrow at him while trying to stop a dispute between centaurs, and the poison continued to endlessly make him suffer due to his immortality, until he became the Sagittarius constellation by returning his immortality to the gods and finally received salvation. His wish for the Holy Grail while participating in the Holy Grail War is to regain his immortality. To him, it is the only gift he received from his parents.
As a Servant, his stats have received a slight rank down due to giving up his immortality and transforming his legs into those of a human, but even then he boasts of specks high enough for him to be called a first-rate Servant—to an extremely abnormal extent in a certain sense. In the first place, it appears that he taught not only swordsmanship, archery and horse-riding, but also wrestling techniques, so he is relatively experienced in moving with human feet.
With the combined effects of his skills, he can even utilize a pseudo-form of future sight, making him truly all-purpose in his abilities. If he has a weakness, it is that he lacks a decisive trump card. Against the brute force approach that throws away all wisdom or intelligence, his strong points fade away.
He deeply loves how weak and insufficient humans struggle despite their insufficiency and still try to move forward, so even if he was summoned as part of the Red camp, he would have definitely rebelled against them with the resolve to die.
Though if he were to describe it himself, he would merely answer, “This is my arrogance as a teacher, as embarrassing as it is”.
In the novels, he was mainly focused on his fight with Achilles outside of his light skirmish with Mordred. After all, Chiron was the only one capable of harming Achilles. That battle was such a great joy to him that he even forgot his true nature as a Servant, but he stood back up as a Servant again at the moment of his death and accurately dealt a fatal wound to Achilles.
Demonic Sword, Sword of the Sun, Gram.
A demonic sword of ruin and glory that Sigurd, the greatest hero of Northern Europe, possessed in the Volsunga Saga.
It is the model of Caliburn in the legend of King Arthur. As Caliburn was a chosen sword in a stone, Gram was also a chosen sword in the mighty tree of the Volsunga king.
The legend of Gram and its possessor Sigurd is a story filled with glory and ruin, as one would expect from a great hero.
"Der Ring des Nibelungen", composed later in Middle Ages Germany, is the story of a knight equal to the legend of King Artnur, and the sword Gram changes its name and appears in it as Balmung.
As the "strongest demonic sword" equaling the "strongest holy sword", it even possesses the special characteristic of "dragon slayer".
User: Gilgamesh A sword that appears in the “Völsunga Saga” of Norse mythology. It is wielded by the hero Sigurd. The incident where Sigurd’s father Sigmund pulled Gram from the trunk of a tree later became the model for Caliburn, the sword in the stone. After Sigurd reforged Gram from the shattered pieces, it is said to have become a demonic sword capable even of killing a dragon.
