    01 - Hunt of the Golden Hind: Golden Stag and the Eventide Tempest
    This Noble Phantasm is Rider's ace in the hole and forms the basis of her day-to-day life. With her flagship, The Golden Hind, at the fore, a vast flotilla of smaller craft expand ever outward and exterminates her enemies with overwhelming firepower. Its attributes contain vestiges of not only the fleet that eventually defeated the mighty Spanish Armada, but also of the stories involving the golden stag and the eventide tempest that had spread throughout the whole of Europe.

    The eventide tempest is the encapsulation of all storms, from blizzards to cyclones, which manifest in the imagination of men as beasts and soldiers, saviors and monsters. Depending on who is speaking, the leader of these apparitions ranges from a fallen King Arthur to the Norse god Odin to the first murderer of men, Cain. in England, it is believed that Francis Drake rides the endless storm despite the fact that the role assigned to her is usually given to malevolent figures of history and myth.

    02 - Invincible Armada
    The name given to the Spanish naval forces during the period of history known as the Age of Discovery.

    The Invincible Armada consisted of an estimated 65,000 men serving on more than a hundred large warships, each of which weighed in at over 1,000 tons. Its might was such that it earned Spain the reputation of being "The kingdom on which the sun will never set."

    03 - Logbook
    The sailing logs of a renowned explorer who successfully circumnavigated the globe.

    The logs themselves are illegible, with pages cracked and flaking. However, it seems that the author of these logs was a ship's captain who made their name as both an adventurer and fleet commander.

    01 - 黄金鹿と嵐の夜(ゴールデンワイルドハント)
    ライダーの奥の手にして日常とも言える宝具。
    主船・黄金の鹿号(ゴールデンハインド)を中心に、無数の小船を展開、圧倒的火力を持って敵を殲滅する。
    スペインの無敵艦隊を破った「火船」の逸話と、ヨーロッパ全域で伝承される「嵐の夜(ワイルドハント)」の逸話がミックスされた宝具。

    ワイルドハントとは暴風雨や吹雪など嵐の化身で、猟犬や山羊、馬や武装した兵士、怪物などの姿で現れるとされる。
    これを率いる者は、伝説では悪魔化したアーサー王や古代の神オーディン、最初の咎人カインなどであるとされ、そうした者たちの中でもイギリスで広く信じられているのがフランシス・ドレイクである。
    原則的にはその土地の荒ぶる英雄や有名人、古代の神などがワイルドハントの首領となる。
    余談ではあるが、スコットランドでは嵐の夜の長はアーサー王とされている。

    02 - 無敵艦隊
    大海賊時代におけるスペイン海軍の異名。
    千トン級以上の大型艦100隻以上を主軸とし、合計6万5千人からなる英国征服艦隊。
    スペインを「太陽の沈まぬ王国」と謳わしめた無敵の艦隊である。

    Details

    01 - Character Background
    The person who circumnavigated the globe and paved the way for England to become the dominate superpower in the Age of Discovery through its substantial earnings. This person was also the one who was given credit for the virtual destruction of Spain's Invincible Armada, which caused the nation once thought of as "the kingdom on which the sun will never set" to teeter on the edge of collapse.

    She is a person who has dedicated her life to hedonistic pursuits and sees no difference between a paragon of virtue and a rogue scoundrel. She revels in all things gaudy, whether they are in war or in her private life, and is content to chase after ephemeral pleasures and leave nothing of worth behind, much like the passing of a raging storm.

    She is particularly entranced with treasures of gold and silver, but her true love lies not with enduring treasure, but those treasures that explode like fireworks and then quickly fade away.

    As she so often declares, "I chase after gold so that I can scatter it like a storm!"

    It is for this reason that she is wholly incompatible with the Hero of Legend that symbolizes "an inexhaustible treasury." She would also be at odds with the fox-eared Caster, as Caster is the epitome of eternity.

    As a devoted libertine, all that matters to her is the inevitable crash at the end of it all. A Legendary Spirit who is completely indifferent to the frailty of human existence, she is content to indulge in her own whims and desires until death comes to greet her.

    She died of dysentery at the age of 55. Her dying wish was that she be buried in her full armor.

    02 - "Franciscus Draco"
    Sir Francis Drake is generally considered the first person to successfully circumnavigate the globe (the first person known to have attempted this feat -- Ferdinand Magellan -- was killed halfway through his voyage).

    Though a male in life, Francis Drake has materialized in Fate/EXTRA as a woman.

    During the time of Francis Drake, England was considered to be a second-rate power with no real influence beyond its borders and no colonies of worth overseas. It was primarily due to his voyages and successes on the high seas that gave rise to the British Empire. The combination of the wealth he brought to the country and the detailed maps he produced while circumnavigating the globe allowed Britain to assemble a fleet that rivaled that of Spain's.

    An oft-mentioned aspect of the Drake mythos is that of his ship, the Golden Hind. Not only was it the flagship of Drake's fleet, it was seen as a symbol of hope and a source of miracles. The exploits the Golden Hind made possible elevated Drake (known and feared by the Spanish as El Draque) to a level on par with King Arthur. Both are said to dwell in Avalon and "across the ocean", the city of the dead, and will eventually return to lead England to true glory.

    During what was to be the final confrontation between England and Spain's Invincible Armada, Francis Drake was commissioned as a vice admiral in the English navy. Using an unorthodox strategy involving the use of fire-ships, he forced the Spanish fleet into open water where they could be bombarded with cannon fire.

    In addition - and this is merely literary creation - there is also a story full of romance in which Drake was a companion of Queen Elizabeth and, just before setting sail for the world circumnavigation, switched places with the Queen, who could no longer go out in public due to receiving a wound on her face.

    01 - 人物背景:
    世界一周を成し遂げ、その収益でイギリスが大航海時代の覇者となる道を開いた人物。
    また、強壮であったスペインの無敵艦隊を葬り去り、太陽の沈まぬ帝国と呼ばれたスペインを事実上瓦解させた。

                  ◆

    享楽主義者で、善人も悪人も区別なくあつかう性格。
    とにかく派手好きで、私生活も、強壮も、嵐の様に吹きすさんだあと、何も残らないような刹那的快楽を良しとした。

    金銀財宝を愛しているが、彼女が愛しているのは“永遠に続く財”ではなく“花火の様に消えていく財”。

    「アタシが金貨を集めるのは嵐の様に使い切るためさね!」

    とは本人の談。
    そういった理由で、いかに黄金好きでも“使い切れぬ財宝”を象徴する英雄王とは相容れない。
    同じ理由で永遠を定義する狐耳のキャスターとも相容れない。

                  ◆

    刹那的な快楽主義者であるため、果てにあるものは華やかな没落である。
    この英霊は生(人生。人間としての意義、誇り)に執着するのではなく、死(万人共通に訪れる没落)を良しとした。

    53歳の折、疫病に倒れる。
    死の直前、錯乱して病床で鎧を着ようとするなどの奇行が目立ったという。

    02 - 『悪魔(エルドラゴ)
    フランシス・ドレイクは世界一周を生きたままなし得た人類最初の偉人である。
    (一人目のマゼランは途中で死去)

    史実では男性だが、EXTRAでのドレイクは女性として現れている。

                  ◆

    当時、技術的にはそれなりでも国力に乏しく、まともな海外植民地も持たない二等国だったイギリス。
    彼らが世界に冠たる大英帝国として生まれ変わったきっかけは、ドレイクが成した航海からだ。
    彼女が帰還後に積載していた香料だけでも6トンはあったとされており、これは当時のイギリスの国家予算を遥かに超えていた。
    この財貨と世界周航で得られた詳細な地図が、世界の覇者スペインと戦いうるだけの艦隊をそろえる資金となり、東インド会社を設立させる基盤になった。

    ……もし世界を変える存在を定義するなら、この船は間違いなくその定義に該当する存在だろう。
    ドレイクの船、黄金の鹿号は単なる一隻の船ではなく、そういった奇跡を成しえた希望の船なのだ。
    この事もあって、エルドラゴ(フランシス・ドレイク)はイギリスの未来の王・アーサー王と同一視されることもあった。
    冥界(アヴァロン、海の彼方)から帰還し、英国に勝利を約束する存在となった為である。

    スペインの無敵艦隊との決戦時、フランシス・ドレイクは英国艦隊の副司令官として参戦。
    火船と呼ばれる特殊な戦法を用い、スペインの英国征服艦隊を上陸させることなく大敗させた。
    この事から、ドレイクはスペイン人からこう呼ばれた。
    悪魔(エルドラゴ)
    「太陽の沈まぬ王国」を歴史の盟主から引きずり落とした、太陽を落とした女、と。

    ……また、あくまで創作にすぎないが、ドレイクはエリザベス女王とは何度か交友があり、世界一周航海の直前、顔に傷を負った為に人前に出られなくなった女王と入れ替わった―――などという、浪漫あふれる話もある。
