Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
Saber's True Name is Bedivere (ベディヴィエール, Bediviēru?), the first member of the Knights of the Round Table, who served as the steward of the royal court, the king's care-taker. Compared to the Bedivere of the Fate/stay night timeline, the Bedivere of Fate/Grand Order is an alternate possibility, wherein he hasn't returned Excalibur before Artoria dies. Despite not being as popular as knights like Lancelot, Percival, and Galahad, who embarked on the quest for the Holy Grail, he was one of the most senior knights along with Kay and Gawain, displaying a history even older than Arthur, whose name was thought to be derived from the ancient War God of the Celts, Bedwyr. He eventually came to serve the young king out of admiration of her, entrusting his sword to her and working to become her personal guard. Seeing her indifference as her trying to be fair without allowing her personal feelings to interfere, he most wished to see her true face and expressions by being near her. Although he thought her true self would become apparent outside of her court duties, his eventual promotion to the rank of Imperial Guard proved him wrong. Although he guarded her more closely than the other knights and constantly watched her behavior, he was unable to see her smile even once.
This Bedivere lived as "if that did not returned King Arthur's holy sword", and King Arthur died. As atonement, he kept on living during a long time for the sake of "returning the holy sword this time for sure", and eventually ran out of strength at Avalon. Not an actual Heroic Spirit, but rather a human from the distant past, he is granted power enough to battle the Knights of the Round Table by Merlin.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Over 10 kg of his weight corresponds to the "silver arm".
Personality[edit | edit source]
Bedivere is exceptionally loyal to his king, putting her well-being above his own and even her own orders on her deathbed. He does not see serving as a knight as serving his country, but only serving his king because of the sole reason that she is the king. Unlike those knight who had begun to drift away from her and those who saw her as inhuman due to her lack of emotion, he feels pride in her and remains loyal throughout Mordred's rebellion. He later begins to even feel some anger towards the situation, believing that she who has accomplished such great deeds should be granted the ability to show a peaceful face. Although he want his king to be given "the light", he finds himself unable to grant her even that. He never found out about her true nature as a woman.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
In the Round Table where heroes surpassing humans gathered, he served King Arthur as the "only normal human" among them. Despite being one-armed, he has been regarded as a knight possessing excellent sword skills and an outstanding general. In order to stop the Lion King in the Camelot Singularity and atone for his sins, Merlin modified Excalibur into a prosthetic arm known as Switch On - Airgetlám. This Noble Phantasm is constantly active-type, and even though his output is usually that of an average human, when performing activation for combat, the STR, CON, and AGI parameter rises to the ones shown in his status, gaining a bonus for his sword attack. Thanks to this Divine Construct, Bedivere can fight against the other Knights of the Round Table.
