Identity[edit | edit source]
One of the supreme existences in North and Central America as well as in Aztec Mythology. In mythology, he is a gentle god who loves peace, and it is said that he bestowed many blessings to the humans. The meaning of his name is “Winged Serpent” or "Feathered Serpent". It is said that he is called the god of wind, spirit of rain, the god of culture, and the god of harvest and life. There is also a legend that he is a Sun God who governed the sun for a time.
Legend[edit | edit source]
Quetzalcoatl was once regarded as the same as the god Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli, the Good God who is the embodiment of the Morning Star, as well as the Mayan god Kukulkan, and he denied the ceremonial sacrifices the humans offered to the gods “as unnecessary.” He possesses many legends of virtue, but is also endowed with aspects as a ferocious deity of war. Quetzalcoatl was a righteous god under whom humans prospered. Although he guided the people to prosperity by bestowing them many knowledges such as agriculture and fire, all while loving everybody, he bought the resentment of the god Tezcatlipoca, and before long, in the end, he was defeated in battle by him; it is said that he took off to Venus from the Aztecs, and his figure was erased. Prophecies were left behind of his return to the Aztecs once again; later on, the Aztec people believed that Quetzalcoatl had returned with an army of Spanish people, including a group of Spanish conquerors that had visited the area, and they believed he had reached the decision of having the Aztecs perish.
The Yucatán Peninsula is the place where a meteorite fell and caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, and a mythological system was cultivated above this plateau, concealing the “bestowed ‘blood’ from an outside astronomical object.” The first generation Kukulkan (the name of Quetzalcoatl in Mayan Civilization) was an existence that possessed elements (bacteria and microorganisms) of this outside astronomical object, or so it was told. This backstory is closely matched with Altera’s, and yet, it was a visitor from the universe more ancient than Altera. However, there is a discrepancy where Altera was an invader while Kukulkan was a being adrift in space.
The deities of South America returned to the jungles of their land and shut down their activities, but they dreamt of the development of humanity. Humanity “is still irrational now, but in the distant future, they will have autonomy, they will have competition with each other, and finally, they will become a species prospering far and wide, plentifully, abundantly, and persistently,” and these kinds of deities that arrived by being imported from the outside have slept, dreaming of humanity becoming that prosperous species. Those are the deities of South America in the Fate Universe.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
A god of peace and tranquility. Now, Quetzalcoatl is an enigmatic elder sister who is addicted to lucha libre. A gentle god who guided to prosperity and with affection, the lovely humans. A gentle god with a famous legend. Basically, human beings are the subjects she watches over in the near future, and whether they are people who points their blades or whether they are people who believes in themselves, she thinks about how one should not kill thoughtlessly. A bright optimist. However, a faithful optimist as well. She surely has a smiling face that makes the sun apparent in the hearts of men, and that she surely believes in opening up a path to a happy era, not letting that brightness be extinguished no matter what kind of crisis there is. An elder sister with a very big-hearted spirit, a broad-mindedness that is like the earth, and a bright and passionate disposition that is like the sun.
Nonetheless, her thought criteria and the scale of her existence is that of a god’s. Quetzalcoatl cannot capture everything on the same scale of a human being’s, and may even sometimes pass a cruel and brutal judgement as a result. She is without mercy to opponents considered a disaster or a foreign enemy, displaying a terrifying facial expression. For most things, Quetzalcoatl endorses communication and prosperity with a smiling face, saying that “it is wonderful everybody’s fineee, so this elder sister is happy!”, but she becomes displeased when talking about alcohol and Tezcatlipoca. This person deeply regrets that she was defeated in the battle with Tezcatlipoca, while simultaneously, she feels a lot of resentment as a result. Rather saying that she’s angry at Tezcatlipoca, she becomes “sullen” towards her powerlessness in defeating Tezcatlipoca, who is the spider, and that Jaguar deity. Regarding “alcohol”, it is the biggest reason why she was defeated in the battle against the former Evil God, and although she wants “no more”, she drinks without thinking in order to encourage herself, even now. Only a small bit will get her drunk, and she will state what she really thinks with her “bad self…” And then, she becomes unconscious, having no recollection of it.
The particulars on how Quetzalcoatl got addicted to lucha libre (professional wrestling) is quite simple: she ended up seeing lucha libre during a time when she was summoned into some age, and that overwhelming shock since then made a very strong impression even on her main body sitting on the seat of gods, or so it seems.
« So, it’s the body! Something like using weapons to occasionally kill each other, that should be avoided to the utmost care! Even during times of discussion, lucha is the most suitable answer! »
Her favorite luchador is Mistico. As a god of wind, and as a god of the Morning Star, Quetzalcoatl observed the luchadores (luchadoras in the case of women) flying freely as if they have wings, and she was deeply moved, shedding tears of gratitude, before having experienced then the distant future, or something like that. Thereafter, her fondness for diligence and her characteristic curiosity turned into her fortune, and she became a luchadora just like that, acquiring a persona of a professional wrestling enthusiast that is unprecedented even among the goddesses.
During the moment where Quetzalcoatl is summoned as a Servant, she views something sprouting in the Master, and then becomes deeply moved. Basically, she is the Master’s favorite Servant. However, she does not “love the Master” in the meaning of the broader sense, but she loves the “growth of this seed called mankind that is being nurtured within this Master.”
Usually, Quetzalcoatl has a feminine tone that is graceful and polite. More or less composed. However, when she encounters something that makes her a little happy, there is a sudden rise in tension within her, and while still like that, she has difficulties in pronunciation, becoming like a pseudo-foreigner in her speech.
Her favorite phrase in the moments of agitating her opponent is “Yucatán?” Seen as free and uncontrolled, Quetzalcoatl is a goddess full of kind-hearted intelligence. She hates sacrificial ceremonies and loves mankind. She knows the lucha libre (professional wrestling) of Central and South America by materializing, and she is receiving a great influence from this.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
A portion of Quetzalcoatl has been given form and incarnated as a Servant. This is an incarnation of a copy of one of the highest beings. Due to these abnormal circumstances, Quetzalcoatl has taken the appearance of a completely unknown woman, descending upon the modern era as a god who loves the proud Mexican sport of lucha libre... It’s not as if she’s particularly worshipped as a god of lucha libre. She just really likes lucha.
Originally a male deity, at the time of materialization, Quetzalcoatl obtained an existence as a female deity. Maybe she was drawn towards the image of Venus (Aphrodite), the goddess of beauty and of the planet Venus, due to the influence of planet Venus’s existence which is regarded as the same as Quetzalcoatl's for a long time, or so the person herself says.
The deities of South America are greatly unlike the other mythological systems of deities, and those South American deities would take action in “transferring from one human to another.” Even the god Quetzalcoatl was identified in several ways according to different regions, and it may not come to light that this female body of some time period became Quetzalcoatl.
Seventh Singularity: Babylonia[edit | edit source]
Quetzalcoatl is summoned in southern Mesopotamia by Tiamat through the Holy Grail's influence. Together with Jaguar Man, she took control of Ur and Eridu. At Eridu she placed her Noble Phantasm, Piedra Del Sol, at the altar of a temple she had built to increase her Divinity in Sumer. Both cities are soon surrounded by a jungle that prevents Demonic Beasts from entering. However Quetzalcoatl bans the people of Ur from leaving to get help elsewhere, and those who break that rule will be killed by the jungle. She also has them send one man a day to Eridu under the pretense that they're sacrifices to satisfy her. In reality though, she is training the men of Ur to be part of her army.
She, Gorgon, and Ereshkigal are convinced by Kingu to become the Three Goddess Alliance. Quetzalcoatl joins to prevent the other members from destroying humanity with the Greater Grail of Uruk by getting to it first. In accordance with the Alliance's goal of destroying humanity, she would kill a hundred humans a day. She also wanted humanity to hate Gorgon so they can fight her with all their strength.
Quetzalcoatl breaks through Uruk's southern gate, and begins heading towards the ziggurat. She kills the soldiers who try fighting her, immediately reviving them afterwards. Ritsuka's party fight her when they arrive, but stop upon seeing that their attacks are ineffective. Ritsuka asks her why she wants to destroy Uruk. Quetzalcoatl answers it's because she was summoned by Tiamat to kill humans. She also tells them her personal method of destroying humanity, saying she won't use her Authority. Mash points out though that she used her Authority in their fight. Quetzalcoatl responds by saying humans need difficult trials to help them grow. She then rides a pterosaur back to the jungle since she reached her quota of killing 100 humans a day.
She returns to Eridu, welcoming the group when they arrive at her temple. She praises them for heading straight for her after her attack; if they did waste time, she would've killed them. She then proclaims she wants to coexist with humans, as they give gods like her purpose. Ritsuka and Mash point out however that contradicts with her trying to destroy humanity. Quetzalcoatl says it doesn't, asserting she helping humans to adapt to their environment. She therefore claims humanity won't go exist as long as she's around, even though they won't safe or at peace. She then decides to give Ritsuka a chance to destroy her Sunstone, for as long as the others can hold off. Before that though, she expects Ritsuka to understand her if they also enjoy fighting like she does. She is bit shocked when they answer that they don't. She then asks them what fighting is to them. Ritsuka answers "It's something to give your all, so you can relax later!" Quetzalcoatl is impressed by their answer, and fights Mash, Ishtar, Medusa, and Jaguar Man. She defeats them all by the time Ritsuka has reached her Sunstone. She is shocked though when they perform a plancha from Ishtar's Maanna high in the sky. She catches them at the last moment, and joins the group, impressed by Ritsuka's resolve. Afterwards, due to the sheer size of Marduk's axe, Quetzcoatl fastens ropes made from jungle vines to her winged serpents to carry it to Uruk. After prepartions are complete, she takes the group to see a cylinder seal in the center of Eridu. After the group learn of its prophecy, Quetzcoatl orders Jaguar Warrior to supervise the winged serpents carrying Marduk's axe. She then returns to Uruk with the others.
Upon returning though, the group learn that Gilgamesh has supposedly died from exhaustion. They doubt this, as Siduri notes a number of similiar cases in Uruk. Quetzalcoatl attributes this to Ereshkigal, and reveals Ishtar isn't an Alliance member like the others thought. She suspects one of Ereshkigal's gallû spirits took Gilgamesh's soul to Kur. She stops Ishtar from trying to leaving, expecting she knows how to get to Kur. The group then head for Kur to rescue Gilgamesh.
At Kutha, Quetzalcoatl and Merlin are told by Ishtar to stay on the surface, while she, Ritsuka, and Mash descend into Kur. She explains it's because those with divinity are weakened in Kur. She also wants them to bargain with Ereshkigal to return Ritsuka and Mash to the living world if they fail. The group return to Uruk sfter rescuing Gilgamesh and convincing Ereshkigal to help.
At the ziggurat, the group immediately begin a strategy meeting for Gorgon. Gorgon's current forces consist of roughly 100,000 Demonic Beasts gathered in the Cedar Forest. Gilgamesh orders the group to go to the Blood Fort, while the Northern Wall forces hold off Gorgon's forces. The Blood Fort is located in the underground lake deep within the Cedar Forest. Gorgon will also lose much of her Authority once the Blood Fort is destroyed. Gilgamesh suggests Quetzalcoatl throws Marduk's Axe at the Blood Fort from the Northern Wall, where it was relocated. Quetzalcoatl however points out the retribution Alliance members face if they attack each other. Merlin devises a plan where he and Ritsuka will sneak into the Cedar Forest and head to the Blood Fort. Once they're close enough, he'll signal Quetzalcoatl who'll throw the axe to him. He tears off a cloth from his staff to be tied to the axe so it can hone in on his location once thrown since the cloth and his staff are connected. The group then travel to the Northern Wall to begin the operation.
Quetzalcoatl and Jaguar Warrior defend the Northern Wall, while the others head for the Blood Fort. Quetzalcoatl agrees with the latter that they can't let the soldiers die. She says both sides of a fight are normally at fault, but the Demonic Beasts were twisted by Gorgon. They're combat abilities have been increased in exchange for their ability to reproduce. Quetzalcoatl finds them to be sad creatures that'll die out once it's all over. She can't say whether or not that's good or evil, but she'd rather allow for the chance of a future than none at all. She then saves Jaguar Man from an attack by Kingu. She confirms to them that she and Ereshkigal have left the Alliance. Kingu is disappointed since they thought she would've understood Gorgon's grief, as her civilization was destroyed by Hernán Cortés. They sympathized with her when she said she'd kill every single human, having thought she'd become an avatar of slaughter. Quetzalcoatl prepares to fight them, declaring she'll kill Gorgon afterwards. She'll consider it her thanks to Gorgon for not trying to killer, and for helping her find a new Master. Kingu finds that absurd, and decides to kill her out of disappointment. Quetzalcoatl eventually gets the signal from Merlin. Kingu mistakenly believes she is trying to use it until she throws it at the Blood Fort. As a result of the temple being destroyed, Quetzalcoatl's divinity falls for breaking the Alliance's non-aggression pact, and Gorgon's divinity also falls. Quetzalcoatl vows to punish Merlin for his trickery. She tells Kingu that she won't kill Gorgon, saying that is a job for the humans. She is surprised by Kingu's concern for Gorgon when they leave to save her. She knows they using her for their own benefit, but she wonders if they love her in their own way.
She and Jaguar Man meets up with the others in Babylon after Tiamat is awoken, demanding to know where Merlin is. Mash informs her Merlin is dead, Medusa sacrificed herself to kill Gorgon, and Ishtar went ahead to Uruk. Quetzalcoatl informs her in turn that the surviving Demonic Beasts at the Northern Wall have fled into the forest. She also detected a distrurbance from the sea. She then tells Ritsuka and Mash to board her Quetzalcoatlus so they travel to Uruk faster. Ritsuka asks her what happened to Marduk's Axe, but she tells them to forgot it, as it lost its Divinityy when it destroyed the Blood Fort. She then calls them just as guilty as Merlin for what happened to her, saying they'll get a lecture later. She, Ritsuka, and Mash then fly to Uruk on her Quetzalcoatlus.
They arrive over Uruk to find it under attack by the Lahmu, while Ishtar struggles against them. The group land to fight the Lahmu in order to secure a path to the ziggurat for the citizens to take shelter in. However, they struggle against even one, made worse by the fact they multiply. The Lahmu suddenly leave though, so the group go to the ziggurat. Ritsuka tells him of Merlin's warning that Solomon had summoned one of the Evils of Humanity. Gilgamesh reveals the Evils of Humanity are seven entities that destroy humanity, becoming stronger the more humanity develops. They're not evils that destroy humanity, rather they're evil that humanity destroys. They're the original basis for Heroic Spirits, and born from humanity's bestial nature, their class is Beast. Tiamat is one of them, though she has yet to fully awaken. She is in the blackened sea, and the source of the Laḫmu. Not only are they slaughtering Mesopotamia's population, they're kidnapping them as well. Those kidnapped are taken to Eridu, which along with Ur are the Laḫmu's nest. Gilgamesh intially orders the group to go to the blackened sea. However, he changes it to Eridu after mentioning Siduri was taken there.
Outside of Uruk, as Mash grieves for Uruk, Quetzalcoatl shows her that the survivors are forming caranvans and heading for the Northern Wall like Gilgmamesh told them. She also points out the soldiers are ready to defend Uruk like Gilgamesh ordered, so Uruk isn't finished yet. The group then proceed to Eridu.
Arriving at Ur, Quetzalcoatl notices the lingering presence of a Servant. She doesn't see them, so she's unsure if they left, or if they're dead. She then shows Ritsuka and Mash that Ur's population were massacred, intially not wanting them to see before realizing that would make light of everything they've been through so far. The group then head to Eridu where they find the kidnapped victims gathered in the plaza. They also meet a strange Laḫmu that doesn't attack them. Ignoring it, the group enter the plaza where they see the Laḫmu forcing humans kill each other. They kill the Laḫmu to allow the survivors to escape. Kingu arrives and tries to stop the Laḫmu. A Laḫmu then rips the Grail from Kingu's body. The group try to take it when the Laḫmu swallows it to become Bel Lahmu. The group fights it to prevent it from flying to Tiamat to fully awaken her. When it flies off, Quetzalcoatl, Ritsuka, and Mash mount Quetzalcoatlus to chase after it. Quetzalcoatl orders Jaguar Warrior to evacuate and protect the humans.
The group chase Bel Laḫmu to the center of the Persian Gulf where Tiamat is located. If it drops the Grail there, its magical energy will awaken Tiamat. The group eventually catch up to Bel Laḫmu and rams it into the shore. It crashes onto the shore, so Romani orders the group to go finish it off and take the Grail. However, they're knocked down by the corrupted Ushiwakamaru. They kill her, and try to resume chasing Bel Lahmu when multiple Ushiwakamaru appear. She cannot be killed as her Spirit Origin is mixed with the Chaos Tide. While the group fought her, Bel Laḫmu delivered the Grail to Tiamat. After Ushiwakamaru retreats into the sea, the group head to the observatory.
There Quetzalcoatl takes responsibiltiy for the grop's failures, and asks Gilgamesh (contacting the others from Uruk) if he has a plan. Gilgamesh reveals the sea level began to rise when Tiamat retrieved the Grail. Once it floods Mesopatamia, it'll convert the surviving population into Tiamat's children, thereby destroying the era. The group then return to the Persian Gulf.
Upon encountering Tiamat, Ishtar and Quetzalcoatl describe how she was sent to the Imaginary Number Space after she was deemed unnecessary after the planet's environment settled and life was established. The group then fight Tiamant to stop her from launching a blast that will destroy Uruk. After they defeat her, Mash laments how Tiamat let them, wondering if she'd stay in the ocean forever if she wasn't delivered the Grail. Quetzalcoatl tells her however that Tiamat's mere existence was a threat to humanity, and she needed to be defeated the moment she appeared. Suddenly though Tiamat's true body emerges from the sea. She then begins to walk towards Uruk, sending waves of the Chaos Tide across Mesopatamia. Understanding Tiamat is invulnerable, the group retreat.
Returning to Uruk, the group learns there are only 500 humans left in Sumer. When Ritsuka asks why Tiamat is targeting Uruk, Quetzalcoatl answer it's because Uruk and Gilgamesh are both symbols of Sumerian civilization, saying Tiamat perceives humans and the land as a single life form. The group then learn learn Tiamat has a paradoxical protection, where she cannot die as long as life exists on Earth. Gilamesh contacts Ereshkigal and asks her to send Tiamat to Kur, where she'll be considered the last living being. He orders her to open a gate beneath Uruk. He suggests they hold off Tiamat with Gugalanna while Ereshkigal completes her task. However Ishtar reveals she lost Gugalanna, who she was looking for when she first met Ritsuka and Mash. Realizing they lack a way to combat Tiamat, everyone takes a break.
That evening, Quetzalcoatl and Jaguar Man visit Ritsuka at the Chaldean Embassy. While Jaguar Man goes off to the kitchen, Ritsuka asks Quetzalcoatl if she knew about Tiamat. She confirms she did, and that Gorgon synchronized with Tiamat's consciousness and was convinced she was Tiamat's second coming. She didn't tell the truth to anyone though, and her showing the cylinder seal in Eridu was her way of warning there's more to come. She then confesses she didn't want Ritsuka to know Gorgon was a fake, believing they would've pitied her and taken her lightly. Jaguar Man then returns from the kitchen, wondering if they're discussing on how to flee tomorrow. Quetzalcoatl lies that Tiamat might be stopped if they sacrifice a goddess. She then gives her meat to fatten her up as the sacrifice, which Jaguar Man readily eats. When Jaguar Man describes their relationship as a rivalry that keeps the balance, Quetzalcoatl says people are either good or evil depending on the strength of a good god or an evil god. She finds it rare for her and Jaguar Man to be allies, as they can never both be successful. Ritsuka then asks her reason for joining the Alliance. Quetzalcoatl lies it's because she enjoys fighting until Jaguar Man reveals her true reasons.
The next day, the group discover Tiamat's legs are too thin to support her weight. Therefore, she can only walk with the Chaos Tide. Quetzalcoatl stops Giglamesh from sending 50 elite soldiers to destroy Tiamat's legs, as every soldier is needed to intercept Tiamat at the city wall. She will destroy the Chaos Tide with Piedra Del Sol, which she wouldn't be able to use if Ritsuka had destroyed her Sunstone. She does warn however that it uses a lot of magical energy and stamania, so she needs to be constinously supplied and near Tiamat. The group then return to the Persian Gulf to execute her plan.
At the Persian Gulf, the group struggle against Ushiwakamaru and her clones. She prepares to kill them when Benkei grabs her. Her clones impale them both, but Benkei uses The Pilgrimage of the Five Hundred Arhat to destroy them both. Quetzalcoatl then uses Piedra Del Sol to incinerate the Chaos Tide in Tiamat's perimeter. However, it reemerges from Tiamat, and she starts to fly using her horns. Ishtar says they need to return to Uruk, and come up with a new plan. Quetzalcoatl replies there isn't any point in going back if they don't stop Tiamat. Ishtar tells her to use her own last resort first if she's willing to sacrifice herself. But Quetzalcoatl says that would be useless since Tiamat can fly now. This confuses Ishtar, as Tiamat is the goddess of the Earth unable to ever go near the heavens. Quetzalcoatl tries to use Xiuhcoatl on her, but she is knocked into the Chaos Tide. Jaguar Man caught her however, and brought her to the Cedar Forest. There she buried Quetzalcoatl before returning to Uruk.
After the Singularity is resolved, Quetzalcoatl arrives in Uruk to reveal her survival. She puts Merlin (who returned from Avalon) in a joint-lock when he tries to flee from her. Merlin demands to know how she's alive since she supposedly sacrificed herself to kill Tiamat and failed. Jaguar Warrior reveals she rescued her. Quetzalcoatl soon stops punishing Merlin, given that his trickery helped them win. She and Jagauar Man then disappear now that Tiamat is gone, as their summoning was only possible due to Tiamat's presence.
Final Singularity: Solomon[edit | edit source]
Summer Event: Death Jail Summer Escape[edit | edit source]
Christmas Event: Holy Samba Night[edit | edit source]
Around Christmas, Quetzalcoatl is asked by Altera to be the next Santa. Agreeing, Quetzalcoatl goes to receive the Santa Grail. However, to Altera and Da Vinci's surprise, Quetzalcoatl dons a Santa samba outfit as she misheard Altera's words. Nevertheless, Quetzalcoatl happily accepts the situation as is. Da Vinci then interrupts the pair's conversation and mentions that they have detected a strange signal. After some coercing, Zerco explains that Quetzalcoatl and the Santa Grail were incompatible as their myths were mismatched. Quetzalcoatl further explains that her power got split into two and her other half disappeared somewhere. Altera agrees with that theory and mentions that the Christmas Grail has gone missing too. Quetzalcoatl decides to leave the situation alone, much to Da Vinci's worry.
Thinking that the problem will solve itself, Quetzalcoatl goes about her day doing her duty as Santa. In the hallway, Ritsuka and Mash watch as Quetzalcoatl dumps a ton of presents onto three Servants. Da Vinci then contacts the pair and ask them to meet her in the command room with Quetzalcoatl. In the command room, Da Vinci explains the situation and asks Ritsuka and Quetzalcoatl to head to Mexico to retrieve the Christmas Grail from Quetzalcoatl's other half. The trio then rayshift to Mexico. In Mexico, the trio discover Mexico covered in snow. On the communicator, Mash tells Ritsuka to put on the winter clothes she has provided him.
Searching the town, Ritsuka notices that the townspeople are excited about something. The pair then decide to head into the jungle and across a temple where they encounter Black Quetzal Mask. Quetzalcoatl demands that the other half come back with them. But the other half refuses saying that she is getting things ready to create the true Santa Claus with a ritual of her own. Snapping her fingers, the other half reveals a hidden lucha ring on top of the temple. She then further reveals that she is hosting an international Santa Tag Team Tournament and whoever wins will become the true Santa. The other half then declares that Ritsuka and Quetzalcoatl are welcome to stop her, but they will never beat her for she is Black Quetzal Mask. Black Quetzal Mask then engages Quetzalcoatl in battle and beats them. Ending the fight, Black Quetzal Mask invites the pair to compete.
Retreating, Ritsuka and Quetzalcoatl decide to compete in the tournament and set about finding a partner for Quetzalcoatl. In town, the pair come across a Servant collapsed on the ground. Giving them some bread, the servant thanks the pair for helping her. Noticing Fou, the Servant asks if they know Merlin and freaks out when they reveal that they do know him. The Servant happily introduces herself as Bradamante and explains how she ended up injured after Black Quetzal Mask beat her, stripped her of her power and stole the Christmas Grail from her. Bradamante further explains that the only way to get her power back is to enter the tournament.
Noticing the convenient timing, Ritsuka's party explain their situation and ask Bradamante if she would like to team up with them. Bradamante agrees and vows to fight by their side. Later, the party heads for the temple to sign up for the tournment. Along the way, Bradamante asks if they have seen Ruggiero and is disappointed when she finds out they haven't. Eventually, the party bumps into Jaguar Man. Jaguar Man explains that she is the referee for the tournament and leads the party to their assigned gym. Arriving at the gym, the party watch a promo for the tournament. After the video, the party comment on the video and ask Jaguar Man about the black-robed contestants. Jaguar Man explains that the robes are just for hyping up the audience. The party then has Jaguar Man answer the rest of their questions. Jaguar Man then leaves, leaving the party to train for the tournament the next day.
The next day, Ritsuka's party go up against Santa Artoria and Astolfo. After the battle, the team returns to the gym where they find Martha waiting for them. Martha offers to help the party with training, but wants to spar with them first to see if they are worthy. After battling Martha, Martha signs on as their coach and sets about training Bradamante. The team then continues winning their battles. On the fourth day, however, Ritsuka's team face off against Wu Zetian, Red Hare and Carmilla who cheat in their battle. Despite the hard struggle, Ritsuka's team eventually manage to win. After the battle, Quetzalcoatl winds up poisoned by Wu Zetian and has to remove herself from the next match. However, she convinces Martha to take her place in her Ruler form.
Winning the battle, Ritsuka's team arrive in their gym to find Santa Altera waiting for them. Quetzalcoatl explains that Santa Altera came to talk to them and announces that she has fully recovered. After some brief discussion, Santa Altera suggest that they need a killer finisher to defeat their next opponents. So the team train to have their own finisher. The next day, Ritsuka's team defeat Anastasia and Ivan the Terrible in the Semi-Finals allowing them to go onto the Finals to face off with Black Quetzal Mask.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Quetzalcoatl is one of the supreme existences in Aztec Mythology and a Chief God caliber Divine Spirit. Being a true goddess, Quetzalcoatl is the highest-ranking Divine Spirit there is. As such, she is stated multiple times to be the strongest member of the three goddess alliance, far surpassing Ishtar who had manifested as a Pseudo-Servant and Gorgon who possessed the Authority of Tiamat and had used the Holy Grail to become a goddess. Quetzalcoatl boasts a large Magical Energy signal and after having witnessed her levels of Divinity, Jaguar Man seems to be nothing more than a paper tiger in comparison. Despite giving off overwhelming power, she claims that even if both Ishtar and herself had their full-powered authorities and the help of any other powers left in Mesopotamia they wouldn't be able to damage Tiamat's "Titan" form. While she wouldn't normally get summoned, she appears in the Babylonia Singularity due to the chain summoning reacting to Gorgon achieving godhood.
Combat[edit | edit source]
One of Quetzalcoatl's most impressive assets is her physical strength as shown when she annihilated Uruk's south gate with her bare hands and causing an Earthquake. Furthermore, she is also capable of using and even throwing the Axe of Marduk, a Divine Weapon the weight of Eridu, 30 kilometers away to destroy Tiamat's temple. Her scream can also be heard from that distance. Having such raw power, Quetzalcoatl is more than capable of fighting multiple servants at once. Even the combined efforts of Ishtar, Jaguar Man, Ana, Mash, and Merlin are only able to keep her busy for two or three minutes. Ishtar and Jaguar Man would only be able to block her charge one time. She has also been shown fighting on par with Kingu without relying on any of her trump cards. Most impressive, considering Gilgamesh claimed they may have been even stronger than the original Enkidu, a Heroic Spirit whose combat strength is roughly the same as that of Gilgamesh during his prime. In the anime she also displayed high resistance to the Chains of Heaven, though considering her high Divinity, it most likely means that her strength and power are so high that they outclass the Chains' durability even when it is increased in reponse to her Divinity.
After having her divinity reduced over half as a result of breaking her contract with the three goddess alliance by destroying Tiamat's temple, she is still a formidable opponent capable of destroying Laḫmu and blackened Ushiwakamaru's clones alongside Mash.
Quetzalcoatl has the qualifications to be summoned under the Avenger Class. However, she doesn't display any thirst for revenge and violence due to her wanting "to have fun". As such, she usually fights with a playful attitude, and since she considers that dropping "the sun to burn it all" would be boring. Should she lose her cool she'd become a cold-hearted machine. Kingu believes that her alone would be enough for taking the world and becoming an avatar of slaughter.
Authority[edit | edit source]
As a God that had dominion over numerous phenomenon, Quetzalcoatl possesses many Authorities. She has shown to be able to resurrect those that she had killed in her death-matches when she invaded Uruk. Piedra Del Sol drags out a portion of her Authority over the Sun and enables her to unleash solar winds that rampage over a large area. When using the true name release of her Quetzalcoatl, Quetzalcoatl is able to perform the manipulation of large-scale lightning, winds and rains.
Additionally, due to being a God of Good at the apex of goodness, nothing good is able to harm her due to "some king of special Skill". The only things that could really harm her would have to be evil. Although this trait appears to only be available when she is at the height of her Divinity, such as when she was summoned by the World to the Babylonia Singularity. In-game, it is represented as a buff called Winged Serpent (翼ある蛇, Tsubasa-aru Hebi?, localized as "Feathered Serpent") which nullifies all damage dealt by Servants with a good alignment while significantly reducing the damage dealt by evil and neutral Servants.
Skills[edit | edit source]
Class Skills[edit | edit source]
- Magic Resistance (A Rank): Nullifies spells of Rank A or below. Modern magi would not be able to wound her with magecraft.
- Riding (EX Rank): It is possible for her to operate all vehicles and beasts freely. She is a god of dragons, so she can also manage even the Dragon Kinds that falls outside the category of the Riding Skill.
- Divine Core of the Goddess (EX Rank): A Skill that expresses one being a perfected goddess since birth. It has the effect of preserving the absoluteness of the mind and body. It repels all mental interferences, prevents the body from growth, and prevents the figure from change no matter how many calories are absorbed. It is a composite Skill that comprises the Skill Divinity. Although she is purely a Divided Spirit, given that it is not the case where she is possessing a human being, she attains an EX Rank in this Skill.
Personal Skills[edit | edit source]
- Charisma (A+ Rank): The natural talent to command an army. Increases the abilities of allies during group battles. Sometimes a god who watches over civilization, or sometimes a king who governs over a country, it is possible to say that Quetzalcoatl’s charisma is almost of the highest rank.
- Wisdom of the Benevolent God (A+ Rank): Originally an Authority but it has degraded into a skill due to Quetzalcoatl being a Divided Spirit. Other than those that are burdens of the body (Divinity, etc) and those characteristics of other heroes, many Skills can be practically demonstrated at the proficiency of A Rank. It is also possible to endow these Skills towards other Servants. If she has sufficient magical energy, it is also possible for Quetzalcoatl to endow them to existences that are not Servants.
- Lucha Libre (EX Rank): "Lucha Libre is the greatest!". Fundamentally, Quetzalcoatl wrestles barehanded, but of course, she will also make use of a weapon from her myth. That weapon’s name is the Macana (specifically, a Macuahuitl). A weapon that wears a comprehensible outward appearance, and it is very painful to punch on. Quetzalcoatl boasts in showing a successful display of applying a headlock onto any kind of monster or deity once she puts her mind to it, but because the propagation of Lucha libre is centered around aerial techniques, she is currently sealing the locking techniques that are the quintessence of Lucha.
Noble Phantasms[edit | edit source]
Piedra del Sol[edit | edit source]
The reason she demonstrates such power and authority in the Babylonia Singularity, is that a temple dedicated to her worship was built in Mesopotamia. This temple possesses Quetzalcoatl's trump card Piedra Del Sol, the megalith of the ancient Aztecs. Even inside a jungle with an incredible amount of Ether much denser than the isle of Britain and on par with a Reality Marble, Quetzalcoatl's temple gives off a particularly strong magical energy response. Destruction of that temple would result in her divinity diminishing.
After Ushiwakamaru claimed that only a Noble Phantasm capable of gathering all the magical energy of the entire era would be able to destroy the Sea of Life, in other words, that only the Bands of Light in the sky could rival Tiamat, Quetzalcoatl hinted that she did in fact possess a Noble Phantasm on that level. However, having her divinity been reduced over half, she later explains that although she can't do an entire ocean worth, this Noble Phantasm is enough to completely vaporize the mud clearing a perimeter around her once she gest ashore. Nevertheless, since the Chaos Tide originated directly from Tiamat's body, the mud gets much denser and powerful the closer you get to her main body and as such, this feat stands near the top of Noble Phantasms in terms of destructive capacity. Had she used this attack on Uruk, she would have burned the city to cinders in an instant.
Piedra del Sol uses a lot of stamina so activating it in her weakened state requires Ritsuka Fujimaru to stand close to her while fighting Tiamat and continuously supply her with mana while she uses it.
Xiuhcoatl[edit | edit source]
Quetzalcoatl's second Noble Phantasm is Xiuhcoatl. With it, Quetzalcoatl temporarily prevents her enemies from invoking the True Name of their Noble Phantasms, only to strike them down with her Lucha Libre in a meteor manner.
Weakened due to her divinity being reduced and the Bel Laḫmu piercing her through shoulders, stomach, and thighs after deploying Piedra del Sol, Quetzalcoatl is forced to kiss Fujimaru in order to get some of her energy back. After doing so and internalizing the power of Piedra del Sol, Quetzalcoatl is able to increase the power of her Xiuhcoatl to the point where it replicates "the cataclysmic impact that annihilated countless lives" becoming "the comet that killed Earth"; in other words, the meteorite that killed the dinosaurs. The power of this attack was able to crack Tiamat's right horn, allowing Gorgon, later on, to destroy it with Pandemonium Cetus. Nevertheless, Tiamat's main body didn't seem to take any damage.
Quetzalcoatl[edit | edit source]
Quetzalcoatl's third Noble Phantasm is Quetzalcoatl, which consists of her summoning the Quetzalcoatlus, a Cretaceous-era pterosaur, and a member of the Phantasmal Species on a Phantasmal to Divine Beast level, which is also far more powerful than the Quetzalcoatlus that actually lived in the Cretaceous period. The Quetzalcoatlus is known as the largest flying animal in history. During the moment of its True Name release, the mounted Quetzalcoatl is able to perform the manipulation of large-scale lightning, winds and rains. The speed of this creature is also extremely high, as when they were chasing the Laḫmu that fled with the Holy Grail, Mash claimed that they had never gone that fast and that it reminded her of the Arash's Airlines flight from the Camelot Singularity. This Noble Phantasm became the reason why Quetzalcoatl can be summoned in the Rider Class.
Forms and Alternate Versions[edit | edit source]
Santa Claus[edit | edit source]
She transformed into a rare Samba Santa in the world. One thing, Quetzalcoatl was mistaking a unfavorable combination of Samba, Santa Claus and a Lucha Libre Tournament.
"Oh, I, it seems I got a mistake a bit at a disaster... But what I have done is no use."
Is it roughly the same thing to make people smile? And with the positive nature of her possession, she stood up as it was as "a goddess giving happiness to the people who she loves".
Dance, Quetzalcoatl! Because of the people's smile.
Fight, Quetzacoatl! For people's peace!
Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Magic Resistance (A+ Rank): Her already powerful magic resistance has become even stronger after having turned into a Ruler. Unlike the one possessed by the Saint-type Rulers, hers is more based around 'taking it and enduring it'. Even if its damage that could be avoided, she will still take it head on.
- Divine Core of the Goddess (A Rank): A skill symbolizing how she's been a fully realized goddess since birth. A skill that sustains the absolute nature of her mind and body. It blocks out any mental interference and halts her body's growth, so no matter how many calories she consumes, her body will not change. It is a composite skill that includes the Divinity skill. Due to having been embedded with such a foreign concept like that of Santa, its rank has degraded compared to when she's a Rider.
- Sambista (B Rank): One who loves Samba. Her life of samba had all begun from a slight misunderstanding, but since she thought that if she was gonna do it she had to do it correctly, she ended up studying about it deeply, and of course being the human-lover that she is, she ended up thinking samba was truly wonderful. Now she's come to love the culture of samba created by humans in the middle of their growth. The problem is that she had nobody around who knew of the correct way to do samba, so at the end of her training she ended up acquiring a style of samba that might be a little different from the usual...but she doesn't really mind. After all, the most important thing is to have fun, right?
- Gift of the Goddess (A Rank): A variation of Saint's Gift and Starman's Gift. Even after becoming a Santa, the fact that she's a goddess still remains.
- Christmas Killing Method (EX Rank): Quetzalcoatl is a luchadora at heart. However she's now also a Santa. In order to erase the paradox created by her nature she created this skill that allows her to maintain her movements as befitting of a Santa while she also fights in the ring. Therefore, these are not aerial assault anymore but rather 'Christmas Assault'. Her style of fighting is now not one that specializes in aerial fighting but rather one that specializes is fighting around the very concept of Christmas. They say that when Santa Claus flies in the air you can hear a holy bell counting three times in the jungle of the ring's mat.
Development[edit | edit source]
Creation and Conception[edit | edit source]
Comment from Illustrator[edit | edit source]
"Given that I received a clear concept from Mr. Nasu himself during the time of design, it became quite troublesome on how I changed the clothing design of a character of the same name that I drew before. Concerning the results, I think it has gotten better. It is a good memory of how we did a nice correspondence of letters on guessing what faces were drawn on them."

Illustrator and Voice actor
Illustrator: Shidzuki Morii
Voice Actor: Yū Kobayashi
Noble Phantasm: A++
Presence Detection: A+
Consummated Shape: A
Magic Resistance: A
Enuma Elish: O People, Lets Tie the Gods
Type: Anti-Purge Noble Phantasm
From its gentle tone and graceful bearings, one would never guess that this is a “Noble Phantasm with a will” that possesses a fierce combat power.
The chains that fasten heavens and earth, regarded by the King of Heroes Gilgamesh as one of the strongest.
A doll created by the hands of the gods, and also an offshot of the earth that harmonizes・becomes one with nature.
A tragic weapon that underwent many adventures as the sole friend of the King of Heroes and, after acquiring a human heart, returned to dirt as a doll.
Level 1 Bond
Source: Epic of Gilgamesh
Alignment: True Neutral Gender: -
“If you tell me to fight, I’ll fight.
After all, it is not like I hate fighting”
Level 2 Bond
One of the oldest heroes described in the Epic of Gilgamesh. A weapon manufactured by the gods.
Originally, it was “a clay work that could transform into anything” produced by the gods.
It phantasmagorically changes its shape in accordance with circumstances.
Its whole body is equivalent to a weapon of gods.
However, it does not have the same mentality or emotions as people, and at first it was not all that different from a wild beast.
It has been said that, after appearing on this world, it became aware of much by meeting with a single sacred prostitute and eventually choose to take the shape of a person (as its basic form).
This appearance is something modeled after said sacred prostitute out of respect.
Level 3 Bond
Its combat strength is roughly the same as that of the King of Heroes Gilgamesh on his golden age.
In the battle against Gilgamesh described on the Epic, it displayed a performance on par to him, who is recognized as one of the strongest heroes in human history.
The first friend ever discovered by Gilgamesh, who was an aloof existence, and it too perceives Gilgamesh as its peerless friend.
After the fight on the city of Uruk, the friends Gilgamesh and Enkidu underwent many adventures, but it ultimately lost its life after the battle with the divine beast Gugalanna.
Level 4 Bond
Introverted, active and self-assured.
Usually it just loiters like a beautiful flower but, once it gets on the move, it becomes a frightening active monster that doesn’t wait, has no mercy and show no self-restrain.
Since they are life forms born from the Earth, it also finds humans “appealing”. But, because humans think of themselves as beings apart from nature due to their intelligence, they rank low as protection targets.
It feels that animals and plants are existences closer to itself and it mostly takes action in order to protect them.
That being said, since it had great curiosity (intellectual craving) to begin with, Enkidu regards conversations with humans as an enjoyment.
If said character has an appealing personality (a totalitarian brimming with philantropous mentality, and yet who thinks of himself as foremost), it will demonstrate respect and admiration from the bottom of its heart, feeling joy in support him as a friend.
Level 5 Bond
- Transfiguration: A
A unique skill in which parameter values are allotted in accordance to the situation from a prescribed comprehensive value. Enkidu’s greatest feature.
The higher the rank, higher the comprehensive value becomes.
At times it makes STR into A Rank, at times it makes END into A Rank.
However, because the conversion limits of parameters is set in stone, it cannot make all parameters into A Rank.
Enkidu possesses a comprehensive value of 30, and each parameter consume the respectively values: A-7, B-6, C-5, D-4, E-3.
- Presence Detection: A+
The highest rank of presence detection.
It is possible to sense presences from long distances by using the land as a medium.
- Consummated Shape: A
By making use of the magic energy of the land, it restores itself to its former shape.
So long there is a supply of magic energy from the land, Enkidu’s body (which was produced from the clay of the Age of Gods) will never collapse.
A powerful regeneration・restoration ability that is completely unprecedented.
However, the soul is a different matter.
Level 5 Bond
"O People, Lets Tie the Gods"
Rank: A++ Type: Anti-Purge
Enkidu transforms its own body into a Divine Construct.
Becoming a linchpin that converted vast amounts of energy to pierce and tie the target.
Originally, Enkidu was a weapon dispatched by the gods in order to “restore Gilgamesh to god”.
The “Linchpin of Heavens” created so that gods and people would not separate, Gilgamesh.
Because such Gilgamesh revolted against the gods, it was charged with the role of binding and bringing him back to heavens.
However, Enkidu became Gilgamesh’s friend and, just like its friend wished, chose the path of using this “chain that restrains even heavens” for the sake of people.
