Space Ishtar, also known as S Ishtar (Sイシュタル?), is the Servant Universe version of Ishtar. In this alternate universe, she is one of the two Alter Egos of Ashtart Origin. She is the evil half of the goddess Ashtoret, the Cerebral Corpus of the goddess, raised to be good by Professor Tokiomi. After his death, Tokiomi entrusted his daughter's future to a trustwhorty assistant. "Even though I taught her everything about good exactly as it was in the textbooks, she quickly saw through my hypocrisy (because Space Ishtar is a smart girl), so one day, most likely when I'm no longer by her side, she might get tired of being good and revert back to her evil nature. However Calamity Jane is good to the core, can't tell lies, and always finds the truth, all while bringing chaos and destruction everywhere she goes. So, if she sees Jane and that makes her realizes that good and evil are not necessarily like oil and water, I'm sure she at least won't degrade herself into pure evil." Just as the professor predicted, SIshtar didn't degrade into evil. Instead she trained herself to become a top tier snarker and is living a respectful(?) adult life as a wild dog Bounty Hunter who snaps easily and can be an annoying penny-pincher, but charges at the strong to help the weak. Jane, however, remained exactly the same, surprisingly enough.
When summoned by Chaldea, she is Ishtar Ashtart's second Ascension.
Although Space Ishtar is 24 years old, she actually looks younger than her regular counterpart. This is because servants stop aging when they are in the prime of their lives. In her case, fourteen, the age at which she left her home.
Space Ishtar is the "tomboy" aspect of Ishtar Ashtart. An outlaw, but a heroine of justice nevertheless. She's in a weird position where she plays with villainous tactics, but what she does is for the people. Her alignment is Evil because she perceives herself as a threat to humanity, but that doesn't mean she's wicked or evil. Her personality is pretty much the same as the Pan-Human Ishtar, except she would never thoughtlessly toy with others. She triumphantly acknowledges a person's good deeds as righteous, and rejoices inside. And the person's bad deeds are acknowledged as terrible, and met with hostile glares and unreserved insults. (And if the person in question is a scoundrel, she will mercilessly exploit their property, life and fate.)
SIshtar has the same foolhardy personality as Ishtar and despises the human society's harshness and shallowness, but despite all this, she is relatively concerned about the people's lifestyles, and takes virtuous humans relatively seriously to heart, leading her to ultimately prioritizing everyone's victory over her own reward... a trend very unbecoming of an Ishtar.
Take the Summer Race situation for example. Ishtar tried to sacrifice those around her to revive Gugalanna in order to restore her rights, but if it were SIshtar, she would realize her mistake at the last minute, destroy Gugalanna by her own hand and distribute its resources among the participants. "I'm going bonkers thinking about how much of a missed opportunity this was, but I just felt like this was the right thing to do! Y'know, I can't lie to myself, can I?" As you can see, she's basically Ishtar, but she'll never stay an enemy of humanity in the late game.
Saber Wars II
Although Ishtar was raised by Professor Tokiomi believing she was a Divine Spirit Servant, she actually isn't. She is one half of the core of a genuine goddess, the Primordial Goddess Ashtart Origin. She's foolhardy and powerful when it comes to living. Space Ishtar is a Pseudo-Servant, and although she poses as an Archer, she actually belongs to the Extra Class Avenger for whatever reason. When summoned by Chaldea, Space Ishtar is Ishtar Ashtart's second Ascension.
Space Ishtar wields a pistol that she uses together with her sword. It fires bullets which curve from behind, or a row of energy rings. She also possesses an energy beam rifle. Space Ishtar's best attacks are Buster-type, and she claims to have as much of an advantage against Lancers as Mysterious Heroine X does. Despite never having been formally taught swordplay, her sword fighting style is exactly like Warrior of Darkness MUNENORI's.
Despite Ishtar surviving Billy the Flash's Noble Phantasm, it still injured her considerably. Although Billy says that is the result of him trading speed for power, he notes that Ishtar is not a normal Servant, and that he'd have to blast her head or her heart to actually end her. By this point, Ishtar claims that she can no longer keep up with his speed. It is only thanks to Ritsuka Fujimaru instantly healing her and replenishing her Magical Energy with a Command Spell that she manages to defeat him before he gets the opportunity to fire his Noble Phantasm again. Ishtar claims that she could have never done it without the support of a Master.
During the Saber Wars II incident, Space Ishtar gets to fight the other Six Blades. This time, with the support of Calamity Jane and Mysterious Heroine X. Altera of the Shooting Star claims that when they work together, their "bravery" rivals their own. The team is able to defeat a multitude of Sigurd's Disciples. Robots that had been cloned from Sigurd the Dragon-slayer Sword. However, it is noted that due to the low temperatures of the planet they were fighting on, they couldn't fight as well as they did back when they were in Dark Maanna. Despite this cold also hindering Anastasia the Freezing Sword, Anastasia has no problem deflecting Space Ishtar's bullets. Nevertheless, Anastasia ends up being defeated all the same, saying she can't believe she lost "so miserably". This team was also strong enough to defeat Lancelot the Darkened Sword. During their fight with Xiang Yu the Monstrous Sword, they also had the support of Jaguar Man. They manage to defeat Xiang Yu, with Jaguar Man dealing the finishing blow.
However, when the team faces Ashtart for the first time, they are completely outclassed. After their first clash, Space Ishtar is the only one that is still standing up, and she admits that she can't handle a candle to Ashtart. Because Ashtart's drive, skill, and training wildly surpass Ishtar's, she's not even deemed a decent fight by Ashtart's standards. It is only with the boost of a Command Spell that Space Ishtar is momentarily able to hold back Ashtart.
When the team faces Sigurd the Dragon-slayer Sword, Sigurd reveals the secrets about Ishtar's past. Although Ishtar was still shaken up by said revelations, Sigurd doesn't give her any time to recover, and immediately attacks them. Something that isn't honorable. In this state, their swordplay is no match for Sigurd's. When Ishtar and Ashtart fight again in a one-on-one duel, Ishtar is reacting faster than she was the first time, although that's also the case for Ashtart. The two of them were pushing each other to greater heights. Despite them being seemingly even for the most part, Ashtart eventually loses. Later on, Space Ishtar fights Warrior of Darkness MUNENORI, one of the two strongest members of the Space Shinkageryu alongside Sigurd. She also defeats him.
