Tamamo Vitch (タマモヴィッチ, Tamamo Vicchi?), Class Name Alter Ego (アルターエゴ, Arutā Ego?), is an Alter Ego-class Servant working alongside Beast VII in the Lostbelts of Fate/Grand Order: Cosmos in the Lostbelt. While working in the same capacity as the three apostles of the Alien God, she is an independent agent currently attempting to become one of the seven Beasts. She assumes the name TV (Tamamo Vitch) Koyanskaya (TV(タマモヴィッチ)・コヤンスカヤ, TV (Tamamo Vicchi) Koyansukaya?), acting as a human with the Russian "NFF Services". She is hired as Goredolf Musik's assistant before revealing her true motives. She also appears as an Assassin (アサシン, Asashin?) in a promotional trailer, but she has yet to appear in that form in the game.

Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
One of the members of the Tamamo Nine. The king of the third lostbelt reveals her identity as Daji (妲己?), the favorite concubine of the ancient king of China, Zhou of Shang, who was also portrayed to be an evil fox in Fenshen Yanyi.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Alter Ego appears to be a voluptuous young woman with long pink hair and gold eyes. She wears a white suit jacket that is strategically a few sizes too small, a matching skirt that isn’t, and a pink scarf. Koyanskaya wears two accessories that hint at her true identity as (a) Tamamo. Her glasses are identical to those worn by Assassin, and her earrings have the same geometric ‘fox-head’ shape as the symbol on Tamamo no Mae Lancer’s bikini. Also worth noting is that her gold eyes are the exact same color as Tamamo’s, though their hair colors differ slightly, with Koyanskaya having a more ashy, cooler shade of pink, while Tamamo's is warmer akin to the color of salmon.
In the Chinese Lostbelt, Koyanskaya had her ears and tails out in the open and hair arranged in buns and wears a Chinese qipao with a frontal cutout in the same geometric fox-head shape as her earings (and Tamamo Lancer’s swimsuit) that shows off her lower chest, with a bell hanging from the center.
The second opening for Cosmos in the Lostbelt shows her in a catsuit, confirming that she is the Lostbelt Assassin revealed in the first wave of promotional material for the Lostbelts.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Alter Ego acts very professional at first and tries to act cute but is very sadistic and has no remorse when taking out lives of other Chaldea crews and is unwilling to let anyone go alive during the attack. She takes great pleasure in making people suffer in any way she can, forcing the Yaga to kill each other in order to afford the food she sells at exorbitant prices and taunting Ophelia about the destructive nature of her Mystic Eyes.
As noted by Rasputin, she has a strong sense of self-preservation and will prioritize her survival above all else, like a rat fleeing a sinking ship. This is best shown during the Yuga lostbelt, where after having been beaten by Arjuna Alter's forces, Vitch shamelessly begged for aid from Chaldea to avoid being killed via a hastily written hitch-hiking sign. She states her goal is to become a nine-tailed fox, one separate from the original Tamamo, and thus a new Beast of Calamity of her own design.
Her endgame goal is becoming one of the seven Beasts.
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Prior the events of Cosmos in the Lostbelt, Tamamo Vitch met Goredolf, becoming his secretary and seducing him. He, at one point, proposed to her, which she deflected by claiming to have poor experiences in the past while privately finding his attempts to woo her quite comical. She convinced him to buy Chaldea and become its director, and assassinated every competitor in the way so Goredolf could have the sole monopoly over the observatory.
Moonlight|Lostroom[edit | edit source]
Alter Ego was seen walking alongside Father Kotomine.
Second Prologue[edit | edit source]
Koyanskaya confronts Ritsuka Fujimaru after their interrogation, but is interrupted when Fou attacks her. She subdues him with little effort, grinding him under her heel, and implies that she knows both of his true nature and that his powers and sapience are significantly reduced. She proceeds to coerce Ritsuka into a small interrogation of her own in exchange for freeing Fou.
Anastasia: The Permafrost Empire[edit | edit source]
Koyanskaya is meant to lead the Oprichnik. Instead, she distributes food to the Yaga at exorbiant prices, essentially forcing them to rob each other just to afford for it.
Ritsuka and Mash find her at Yaga Smolensk. Koyanskaya doesn't understand what Ivan the Terrible was thinking when he created the Yaga by combining humans with animals. They lost the innocence of the latter and the intelligence of the former, cancelling out any good bits from either half. Koyanskaya is disguise they call themselves a new species just because they can barely survive in the Lostbelt. A Yaga argues against her criticism when one of her Oprichnik kills him in reaction to her anger. Koyanskaya then starts selling the food at triple the price from the last time. Knowing they can't afford, she entices the Yaga to kill each other for the money.
She then notices Ritsuka and Mash. Mash shields Ritsuka, but Koyanskaya knows she lost her abilities as a Dem-Servant. She decides not to kill the pair today as she isn't done with her work. She also wants them to gain something of a fighting chance against Kadoc Zemlupus. She criticizes Sherlock Holmes for letting RItsuka and Mash out with protection. If any other Servants had been assigned to Russian instead of her, Ritsuka and Mash would've been killed. Sherlock asks her for her True Name, her Master's identity, how Servants are among their number, and what the Singularity is truly called. Koyanskaya however refuses to answer any of his questions, saying Chaldea will have figure it out their own. While she is Chaldea's enemy, she isn't an ally to Russia or Kadoc either. She calls the Yaga another branch of human evolution, and therefore, an object of her hatred. Thus, she brutually and thoroughly exploits them, though such exploitation of the poor was invented by humans. She calls using violence to destroy what you detest the height of human folly. She says humanity brought destruction on themselves, saying she refuses to stoop to their level. Mash understands that she's letting them go because they're not worth her time. She then leaves, promising to see them again if they survive Russia as she is an advisor to the Crypters.
She later goes to the palace to confirm Ivan's condition. She comments with Grigori Rasputin on Kadoc and Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova's relationship. Since she completed her work in Russia, Koyanskaya prepares to leave for her next assigned destination, especially since Kirschtaria Wodime sent out Caenis too. She then leaves after agreeing with Rasputin that the lostbelt is devoid of hope for her to dash.
Götterdämmerung: The Eternal Ice-Flame Century[edit | edit source]
She laments on not being able to obtain Ophelia's Mystic Eye.
S I N: The Land of Unified Knowledge[edit | edit source]
Vitch appears in the Chinese Lostbelt with her ears and tails out in the open. The king of the third lostbelt reveals her identity as Daji (妲己), the favorite concubine of the ancient king of China, Zhou of Shang, who was also portrayed to be an evil fox in Fenshen Yanyi. She is also tortured by the emperor, due to her releasing various beasts from the previous lostbelts there. Also, it is revealed that sage arts can block her Independent Manifestation ability.
Yuga Kshetra: The Black Final God[edit | edit source]
Her solution to avoiding the chaotic destruction in Yuga Kshetra is to plonk herself on the roadside, holding up a hastily scribbled sign to indicate her need to hitchhike on the Shadow Border.

Other appearances[edit | edit source]
Abilities[edit | edit source]
She's captured a decent number of monsters from the various Lostbelts and trained them under her command. These ones are marked by having a "NFF" logo somewhere on their sprite in-battle. She can summon them at will with only pieces of hair as a catalyst. She is also skilled in the use of sniper rifles, although she considers participating in combat to be beneath her.
