Oberon's real True Name is Oberon Vortigern (オベロン・ヴォーティガーン, Oberon Vōtigān?). He was summoned by the planet into the British Lostbelt in order to destroy it, but his Saint Graph was partially corrupted into "Oberon" upon his arrival by the Welsh Fairies. While in his persona as Oberon he is a charming man, in truth, as the King of the Mors, Vortigern is a Threat to Humanity who desires the destruction of both Lostbelt Britain and Proper Human History.
"My name is Oberon. Oberon Vortigern. Now it's time to raise the curtain upon this tragedy! The pilgrim's journey ends here!"
A Servant who was summoned by the land of Britain to defeat Morgan, the ruler of Faerie Britain. He is a fairy who has been around since ancient times in the British Isles, but this Oberon is heavily influenced by the fairy king from William Shakespeare's play, A Midsummer's Night Dream. His wife in the play, Titania, is a purely fictional creation of Shakespeare's, whose inspirations were Mab, Diana, and Titan.
In A Midsummer Night's Dream, Oberon is described as having great power, but his character is selfish and unmanly. He has a falling out with his queen Titania over her new changeling, and in retaliation, he creates a potion that makes a person fall in love with the first living thing they see when they wake up in order to make the changeling his. However, because of Oberon's attendant Robin Goodfellow's tendency to slack off, the potion was also given to the humans Lysander and Dimitrius...
There are also other stories that exist involving Oberon. In the 15th century poem Huon of Bordeaux, he was portrayed as the king of the fairy forest and a magic user with the ability to grant all wishes.
He is competent in combat, but he truly excels in gathering intel and providing combat support. A hardworking person who flits around with all his might to ensure that Chaldea succeeds in their mission. He is our reliable fairy king who will do everything in his power for the right future of Britain.
The physical embodiment of Faerie Britain's will to destroy itself, as it is a land that was built on the sins of fairies and should not exist. He shares the same name as the Vile King Vortigern, who led to Britain's destruction by selling out Britain to different races in Pan-Human History.
The Autumn Forest, located on the outskirts of the Fairy Country (Wales), is where the fairies who have been bullied and fled home as a result, and fairies who have been persecuted for simply existing and "spreading poison", come to gather and die soon after. Insect fairies with no power whatsoever. Small fairies who couldn't join the circle of fairies in the Fairy Country that mimic human society, due to their innocence and low intelligence.
In the midst of this forest inhabited by those who have nowhere else to go, and those who end up dying in obscurity hated and forgotten, the Vortigern of this era, Oberon was born.
This is the second time the planet summoned Vortigern to try and destroy the Lostbelt. The first time was 1000 years ago, when he led the Mors in a war against Morgan's army. He was defeated back then by Woodwose. As long as Cernunnos continues to exist, Vortigern cannot fully utilize his power.
Oberon has moth wings and sometimes puts on a cap with moth antennae accessories. In his true appearance, he has dragonfly wings, and his legs and right arm take on a black insectoid appearance. The legs and body of centipedes, flies, and other vermin can be seen beneath his black cloak. When using Lie Like Vortigern, he transforms into a monstrous worm-like creature.
Vortigern's cheerful Oberon personality given to him by the Welsh fairies was not a lie. He truly did think he was Oberon, and really did befriend Ritsuka Fujimaru and Chaldea. But after Wales was burned down and its fairies killed by Barghest, the spell was broken and he started to regain his true identity.
A gentle, engaged, and kind-hearted pacifist. Because of his thoughtful nature, he is cautious when it comes to carrying out his plans and strategies, but he never misses a chance to make his move. He can dominate any situation with strong aggression (or savagery, depending on how you look at it). A perfect prince of light, as if he were a character straight from a fairytale.
At any rate, he is a sly story protagonist.
He has the smile of an adult but still retains his boyish mannerisms; the power and executive function of an adult despite being a boyish dreamer. He is well-educated but doesn't boast about it, carries lofty ideals but doesn't force them on other people, is weak but does not submit to violence.
"I like being happy. Just as insects need clean water to live, fairies can't live without being happy."
Similar to Shakespeare, Oberon will do things because he thinks it fits the narrative. For example, he waited before finding Protagonist and Artoria Caster because he thought it would increase their Relationship Values. Unlike Shakespeare he's not doing it because it amuses him but because that's how he thinks stories work.
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.
Oberon the Great Liar. His existence, even his name, is a lie. When he revealed his true nature, he declared boldly, "I have nothing I like," the edges of his mouth curling upwards. Of course, this is also a lie. There isn't a single thing that he says that is true.
Since everything he says and does is a lie, there is no need for him to tell the truth. He says his purpose in life is to watch people fall to ruins, but there is no way to tell whether he is speaking the truth or not. The reason why he looks down on others and causes misfortune isn't because he loves only himself and wants only himself to be happy. It is because he thinks everyone is simply disgusting. He has no love for others, nor for himself as well. Because Fairy Eyes can see the truth, he looks down on everything he sets his eyes on, and smiles sweetly to hide the discomfort constantly rising in his chest.
His public persona is entirely an act, but Oberon's lies are so perfect that they are not considered "fiction." If he is so inclined, he can live like that and have that be his "true persona." However, since he is cursed and anything he does is considered a lie, it being true holds no meaning to it.
He will never harbor love for any living thing, any human. To Oberon, humans and fairies alike are targets of exclusion that are "unimportant but unpleasant, disgusting but appear happy." Since Oberon can never feel "happiness" all his life, he considers other lifeforms that can achieve happiness just by being alive without any effort or intelligence, to be an eyesore and incomprehensible to him.
"Damn bastards. I'll destroy everything one of these days." Oberon's aggressiveness was not born out of jealousy or hatred, but rather out of his love for Titania. But that is something Oberon will never admit.
Oberon-Vortigern's desire to destroy Greater History actually comes from his Oberon side. As Oberon is a fictional existence, he is repulsed by how Chaldea culls away the Lostbelts, since they are fabricated existences as well. He spites humanity and the Greater History system for "rejecting" them, and while Vortigern wants to destroy the Lostbelt, Oberon wants to destroy Greater History for the stance they take towards "stories". Despite this, he comes to take a liking to Ritsuka. As he dies he says that the sky they wish to protect really is beautiful, and admits he was doing it for Titania, a being that could only exist in "stories".
Oberon is accompanied by a moth named Blanca, his advisor and friend. Blanca is tidy, smart, and above all, a hard worker. The princess of the Autumn Forest of Wales, Blanca fell in love with Vortigern when he first appeared. Knowing what the prince really hated, the princess kept in her heart that she would flutter for him until the end. She believed that it was the only fire that could warm his cold limbs. Blanca dies by absorbing the poison of the Mors that were flowing to Vortigern from across Britain, and Vortigern drops her off the side of the Storm Border.
Fairy Round Table Domain: Avalon le Fae
Oberon is allegedly a Servant summoned by the Human Order to assist Ritsuka Fujimaru in the English Lostbelt. The truth is, that when Vortigern was summoned into the Lostbelt he was weak. He was saved by the childlike fairies of Wales, who mistook him for a prince and accidentally gave him the "identity" of one, stabilizing his Saint Graph while also unintentionally making him think he really was Oberon. It is similar to how the Fairy Knights took on the names of the Greater History Knights of the Round Table, which also gave them the Knights' powers. With this new identity "Oberon" became the protector of the outcast and weak fairies of the Welsh forest.
While Artoria believes Merlin has been teaching her in her dreams, it is implied that it is actually Oberon impersonating him as the person in her dreams uses Oberon's style of speech instead of Merlin's. When Artoria meets Oberon she also mistakes him for Merlin at first.
In Lord El-Melloi II Case Files and Melty Blood, Zepia Eltnam Oberon, the director of Atlas, chose the name "Oberon" for himself. In the World of Magecraft, where a resemblance of names holds a deep meaning, the relationship between him and Oberon is a story only he knows.
He has the ability to recruit moths for reconnaissance and shrink himself to join them on their infiltration, which he calls his Robin Goodfellow form. He becomes a bit more airheaded in his shrunken form. While in his shrunken form, Oberon flies fast enough to visit all of Lostbelt Britain within two days.
Every time Oberon is used as NPC Support for a fight in the English Lostbelt, he has a different Class, which is perhaps a Class ability of the Pretender class. Archer, Rider, and Caster have been observed. His abilities are the same in every one. When acting as Oberon, his Saint Graph is Ruler.
- Anti-Human Order (D Rank): An ability that puts a stop to everything created by Humanity, as well as the laws that work in humanity's favor. It is a skill originally possessed by the Beast Class. Oberon has acquired the same skill possessed by the Evils of Humanity after deceiving and remaining in hiding for so long. He bears no hatred or resentment toward humanity. He merely wants to eradicate them, an action as instinctive as breathing. To put it simply, it is a form of malice that subtly directs people's hearts (the general atmosphere) to evil, low and cheap tendencies.
In addition, Oberon is fatally incompatible with Merlin, another resident of the "Dream World", and refuses all support from him. There is a disconnection caused by a difference in stance regarding stories, and Oberon allocates almost all of his camouflage abilities towards Merlin. As a result, Merlin cannot perceive Oberon. When Merlin sees someone talking to Oberon through his Clairvoyance, said person appears like they are talking to themselves.
- Territory Creation (E- Rank): The ability to create one's own workshop and base as a Mage. He used to be the king of the Fairy Forest, but his territory was lost over time and he has now become nothing more than a wanderer in stories. As a result, his Territory Creation skill is the lowest rank possible. Paradoxically, this skill shows that Oberon is now "all but a king in name only." Oberon keeps this a secret, and does his best to hide the fact that his Territory Creation rank is low.
- Item Construction (A+ Rank): The ability to create items. He is the highest-ranking craftsman when it comes to items that deceive the mind such as the Tricolor Field Dew, which has even managed to curse the Fairy Queen Titania.
- Riding (A Rank): History regarding British Fairies states that fairies ride on insects when they travel. Oberon is a king so he travels gracefully using his own wings, but when he is out of people's sight, he rides a hawk moth (at 130 km/h), speeding through the land and leading people's hearts.
- A Midsummer Night's Dream (EX Rank): A curse that Oberon has carried since he came into existence. "Everything is a dream illusion. The events that transpired here is not worthy of truth―" That is how the world's most famous play about Fairies, A Midsummer Night's Dream, closed the curtains, but on the other hand it represents Oberon's nature. In Human History, his words and actions were labelled as lies no matter what he did, so as a result, a curse where nothing about him is true and nothing he says is true has been engraved into him.
- Divinity (— Rank): Oberon's consort, Titania, is a Fairy created as a composite of various fairies and goddesses (Mab, Diana, and Titan) and has divinity as a result. But since Oberon is purely the "King of the Fairies" and not a composite being, he has not acquired any divinity.
- Fairy Eyes (— Rank): These are not Mystic Eyes that humans possess, but are rather a type of vision that Fairies are born with that allows them to "alter worlds." These eyes, which see through all lies and reflect the truth, allow Oberon to clearly see the malice, shortcomings, and nature of intelligent beings.
- Veil of Night (EX Rank): Night falls, bringing great success to the party, and increasing the will to fight by escaping reality. Almost identical to Merlin's Dreamlike Charisma.
- Morning Lark (EX Rank): Morning breaks, greatly uplifting the party's mental state and increasing self-esteem. One-time forced doping. It increases the target's magical output, but only for a short amount of time. This power-up will be lost over time, so plan how you will use it for your Noble Phantasm accordingly.
- End of a Dream (EX Rank): A dream of the end times. An enhancement skill applied to a single ally. The affected Servant will gain an unparalleled rise in strength, but at the end of the turn they will lose all of its effects and sleep for eternity. ―Those who have lost their dreams, will never, hold the power to wake up back into reality again.
Oberon is illustrated by Chica Umino. She was introduced to Fate/Grand Order by Mafia Kajita and became hooked on the game, and then Kajita introduced her to Kinoko Nasu, getting her the job designing Oberon. Oberon was her first time illustrating for a video game.
After their first meeting Chica Umino drew a bunch of rough sketches, asking if any of those would work for the character, and all of those could easily go in a picture book without needing any extra editing. She has a fear of insects, but despite this still bought an insect reference book while designing Oberon because according to her, if she wants her drawings to mean anything, she has to learn the real version's biology before she draws. Nasu could see her in pain every time she looked at a bug, but admired her work.
Nasu's original plan for the British Lostbelt was a simple good vs evil story where Chaldea defeats Morgan and leaves, the end. But when Umino was introduced to him, he decided it was his "now or never" chance and asked her to make Oberon. Oberon's creation was the catalyst that caused him to rewrite and expand his plans for the Lostbelt, turning it into the giant chapter it is now. Since that's where Nasu was using Oberon, he had to take the story one level deeper, and that's how he added to so many new elements that he oversized the story.

Zepia Eltnam Atlasia [Person]
The head of the Atlas Institute.
Already having become a Dead Apostle, he has overcome the limit of his lifespan.
His number of and precision with Parallel Thought Processes are overwhelming even compared to other members of the Atlas Institute, as shown by his ability during the story to suppress the rampaging Logos React almost single handedly.
Completely separate from his pursuit of magecraft, he has an overwhelming love for theater.
Furthermore, he has a strong one-sided love for his daughter (or rather, a distant descendant of his from when he was human). Rumors have it that he adds to her trials out of a joy of seeing her under stress, but there are none who can confirm that.
Also, the name Atlasia is a title given to the head of the Atlas Institute. Before becoming the director, he had chosen the name Oberon.
In the world of magecraft, where a resemblance of names holds such a deep meaning, the relationship between him and the fairy king Oberon of a Midsummer Night’s Dream is a story only he knows.
