The Alliance

A group formed through the partnership of the Red and Black Factions of the Great Holy Grail War. It is led by Jeanne d'Arc, the Ruler-Class Servant summoned by the grail, together with Waver Velvet El-Melloi II and Fiore Forvedge Yggdmillenia.
    Ruler 

Jeanne d'Arc

A Saint who fought during the Hundred Years War against the English and was burned at the stake. She is a Servant summoned by the Grail to oversee the Holy Grail War and summons Saber in order to help her with said task.
  • Badass Pacifist: Being a standard-bearer, she's never fought much personally. Still doesn't stop her from keeping up with other Servants in combat, even against someone as powerful as Lancelot.
  • Barrier Warrior: Like canon, her Noble Phantasm Luminosité Éternelle creates a magical barrier.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's a tender-hearted young woman who cares for everyone. However, she's still a Servant and an excellent fighter who won't hesitate to go to war with those who harm the innocent.
  • Big Good: Is this by default of being the Ruler-Class of the Grail War, mediating the conflict between factions. She also serves this role together with Waver and Fiore once the Alliance is formed.
  • Boobs of Steel: She's a very capable physical fighter and it's noted that she's rather well-endowed.
  • Braids of Action: Her long blonde hair is tied into a long braid.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Slowly develops this attitude towards Arthur, albeit subdued.
  • Deuteragonist: The character with the most focus after Arthur.
  • Grand Theft Me: She possesses a human girl named Laeticia to manifest in the world. Like in canon, Laeticia granted her permission to do so, making it a heroic example of this trope.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Has blonde hair and is very kind.
  • Jeanne d'Archétype: Goes without saying after all since she's the original Jeanne d'Arc.
  • Lady and Knight: Her dynamic with Arthur has shades of this since she summoned him to serve as her protector and he is the King of Knights.
  • Nice Girl: Very humble and kind.
  • Red Baron: The Maid of Orleans.
  • Secret Keeper: She hides Rogue Berserker's true identity (Lancelot) from Arthur due to not knowing how he'd react. He later finds out the truth in ACT-3.
  • Superior Successor: On two levels. Arthur tells her that her kindness and loving nature to everyone makes her a far better Master than Manaka was, and she makes for a better Ruler than Shirou who manipulated and abused the rules of the Holy Grail War to attain his desire for a world free of evil.

    Saber of Ruler 

Arthur Pendragon

The legendary king of Camelot who was summoned by Ruler in order to aid her during the Holy Grail War. He was formerly a Servant in a previous Holy Grail War.
  • Blow You Away: Excalibur allows him to manipulate wind to create powerful slashes of air to either push back or cut through his opponents.
  • Broken Ace: Arthur is unquestionably one of the greatest warriors in history and myth, and one of the strongest Servants in the current Grail War, but he's also plagued by his past failures such as the fall of Camelot, his failings as a father to Mordred, the death of his son Lucius, and killing his previous Master in the last Grail War. Much of his Character Development involves him coming to terms with his past mistakes.
  • Broken Pedestal: To Mordred. She once idolized Arthur more than anyone else, but his cold rejection of her drove Mordred to become a rebel. It eventually turns into a Rebuilt Pedestal as both are able to mend their relationship by Chapter 26.
  • Character Development: He eventually comes to terms with Camelot's fall and his failures, and accepts that he did his best.
  • Cool Sword: Excalibur as always.
  • Death Seeker: Discussed. He says that had Jeanne told him the truth about Rogue-Berserker's identity at the time he was summoned, he likely would have allowed Lancelot to kill him out of guilt.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: Self-acknowledged and inflicted. His cold and downright cruel rejection of Mordred was because at that point, his son, Lucius, died of illness and he was grieving at the time, but he admits that none of that matters and nothing justifies how he treated her that day.
  • The Gadfly: Towards Jeanne. Merlin must have rubbed off on him.
  • The Hero: The overall main character of the story with Jeanne and Mordred coming behind him.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: For all his accomplishments as the King of Knights and one of the greatest warriors in history, he almost always finds a way to admonish himself for his failings and nullify his successes. Many characters (Iskandar, Jeanne, Guinevere, and Mordred) have called him out on how self-pitying he comes across and that he needs to let it go.
  • Hidden Depths: He's actually a decent chef as discovered by Jeanne at the end Chapter 3.
  • King Incognito: In the past, he'd sneak into villages and towns as a peasant sometimes for fun and to interact with people without the stigma of being king. This is actually how he and Mordred first met.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: A quintessential example, being a chivalrous knight who protects others from harm and fights evil. He's even called the King of Knights for being the epitome of this trope.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: He had no idea that the Rogue Faction's Berserker is Lancelot, and Jeanne refuses to tell him about it due to her uncertainty on how he'd react. He later starts to suspect his identity after his talk with Guinevere, and he fully learns the truth in Chapter 26.
  • Master Swordsman: He is King Arthur after all. He often fights and bests other warriors of equal or greater strength through pure swordsmanship alone, making him probably the best sword fighter in the Grail War.
  • My Greatest Failure: The fall of Camelot as per canon. His inability to see through Manaka's insanity is another.
  • Not Quite Dead: Sort of. It's revealed in ACT-1 that he didn't completely die after his battle with Mordred. He was taken to Avalon to heal, but while he died there, he also didn't and describes himself as an "incomplete Heroic Spirit" as a result.
  • Older Than They Look: Despite being Mordred's father, Kairi lampshades that he looks young enough to pass as her older brother. Jeanne speculates that this is a result of her summoning him in his physical prime, though Mordred having aged twice as fast as the average human also plays a role in this. He later reveals that how he looks now is how he appeared on his deathbed.
  • Parents as People: He's painfully aware of the fact he could have been a much better father to Mordred. The fact that his other child, Lucius, had only recently died when she revealed her true identity to him mitigates his behavior a little bit. Arthur admits that what happened doesn't excuse his words to her that day.
  • Red Baron: The King of Knights due to being considered the epitome of knightly chivalry.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Due to receiving an arm injury from Richard, Arthur did not participate in the search for Manaka in the latter half of ACT-2. He fully recovers by ACT-3.

    Servants of Red/Black 

Saber of Red: Mordred

The treacherous "son" of King Arthur whose rebellion ended with the fall of Camelot. She is the Servant of Kairi Shishigou.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: She's a fine knight and a powerful warrior, but Arthur points out that she thinks too highly of her abilities, which leads to her underestimating her opponents and getting into trouble.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Anything to do with her father, whether it be his presence or people comparing her to him, will piss her off into a near frenzy.
    • She's guaranteed to lash out at anyone if they call her a little girl.
  • The Berserker: It gets noted by the likes of Arthur and Gilgamesh that despite being a Saber, she fights more like a Berserker due to easily getting enveloped by her anger and lashing out at her enemies.
  • Character Development: Starts off quite antagonistic towards her father before she begins to gradually soften up thanks to interacting with him more and more. It's eventually cemented by Chapters 26 and 27 where both more or less finally bury the hatchet.
  • Daddy Issues: Even more so than normal as her father is now present compared to canon. After seeing many visions of her past, Kairi muses that it's impossible to tell if she hates her father or cares about him. She finally starts moving past this at the beginning of ACT-3.
  • Red Baron: The Knight of Treachery for her infamous betrayal of King Arthur.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: Played with. She's more annoyed by her revealing civilian attire than she is embarrassed, but she also has no shame when she's just in her under-armor, which is even more revealing. It's less that she dislikes how little it covers and more that she'd rather it be her choice to wear it or not.
  • Samus Is a Girl: In her time as a knight, she disguised herself as a boy due to the stigma against the idea of women being knights. This is something she picked up on as a child, as she referred to herself as a boy when she was growing up.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Picks up the habit from her Master, much to Arthur's displeasure.
  • Tritagonist: The third main character after both Arthur and Jeanne.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: She's immensely strong and her Noble Phantasms can cause serious damage (it's even noted that her Clarent Blood Arthur would have left Siegfried severely wounded had he not been given an added defense) and she can be quite clever in battle (such as throwing trees at Arash to distract him so she can get close to him), but she lacks any real skill with her sword. This becomes a notable problem when she fights more masterful swordsmen like Siegfried and Arthur or more skilled fighters like Chiron and Arash.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: In spite of her boasting, she really wants her father to acknowledge her as a worthy successor and is left speechless when he does that without any prompting during the banquet between the Red and Black Factions.
  • The Worf Effect: She is an incredibly powerful Servant, but she also tends to be the go-to punching bag to showcase the overall power of another Servant, such as Lancelot, Shirou, Siegfried, and Arash.
  • Younger Than They Look: Due to her being a Homunculus, she aged twice as fast as the average human and was practically a full-grown adult when she was barely over a decade old.

Archer of Red: Gilgamesh

The oldest known hero of humanity from the Epic of Gilgamesh and the King of Heroes. He is the Servant of Reines El-Melloi Archisorte.
  • The Ace: He's the strongest Servant of the Red Faction and one of the most powerful Servants that can be summoned overall.
  • Composite Character: Of both FSN-Gilgamesh and Proto-Gilgamesh, mainly taking after the latter in terms of character, appearance, and fighting style while also taking a few cues from the former as well. He also uses the FSN version of the Gates of Babylon when he finally fights against Ramesses for the first time.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He may be a jerk, but he was outright disgusted when he saw Manaka brainwash her Servants and force them to obey her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Still a jerk, though he's far more considerate of others compared to FSN-Gilgamesh.
  • Red Baron: The King of Heroes, due to being the first and oldest known hero.
  • Smug Super: Much of his arrogance and overall jackassery stems from the fact that he's the most powerful Servant in the Holy Grail War, and is completely aware of this fact.
  • Storm of Blades: The Gates of Babylon as per usual. In this fic, however, he uses two variations of it. One is him using it the same way as his Proto incarnation would, firing off his treasures in a rotating volley like a Gatling gun. The second is the method used by the FSN version where using it is a sign that he's fighting seriously.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Him being so ludicrously powerful means that the only characters that can likely take him on in a fight are Karna, Lancelot, Arthur, Achilles, Ozymandias, and Heracles. To keep him from making things too one-sided, his ego and difficulty to control prevent the Red Faction from just sending him in to wreck house.
  • Strong and Skilled: Part of what makes him so powerful is his immense wealth of combat skills and just how ludicrously powerful his Noble Phantasms are. The only character that can match his fighting skill is Karna and the only character that equals his Noble Phantasms is Ozymandias.
  • Wild Card: Among the characters he's the most prone to doing as he pleases thanks to Reines letting him do so. This includes him going off to meet with Manaka's group without telling anybody else, taking only Reines along with him more or less because she wouldn't leave him alone.

Lancer of Red: Achilles

A famous demigod hero who fought and died in the Trojan War. He is the Servant of Gray.
  • The Ace: Aside from Gilgamesh himself, he's the strongest among the Red Servants and is capable of taking on multiple opponents at the same time without losing breath. He even goes head-to-head with Karna and keeps pace with him several times.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: In canon, he was a Rider-class Servant. Here, he's a Lancer so he does not have access to Troias Tragōidia. Not that it makes him any less powerful.
  • Bash Brothers: With Cu Chulainn, getting along with him well thanks to their similar personalities.
  • Blade on a Stick: He fights with a spear and shield, and is proficient in using them in combat.
  • It's Personal: With Perseus after he kills Chiron. Not simply because Chiron was defeated by him, but the fact that Perseus did so by teaming up with Assassin of Black. As Perseus is also a former student of Chiron's, Achilles considers this to be quite dishonorable.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Like his myth, he has an impenetrable body which is reflected in his Noble Phantasm Andreías Amárantos protecting his whole body from damage except for his heel.
  • Strong and Skilled: He is an incredibly skilled warrior with four Noble Phantasms including his famed invulnerability and can go toe-to-toe with the likes of Karna.

Rider of Red: Iskandar / Alexander the Great

The King of Macedonia whose conquests netted him the title of King of Conquerors. He is the Servant of Waver Velvet / El-Melloi II.
  • Affably Evil: He's a conqueror and he espouses his desires to take over the world, but he's not a bad guy and is rather nice to everyone on his side and is even respectful to his enemies. It's less that he's a bad guy and more that he's a good guy with a morally dubious motive.
  • Badass Army: Ioinian Hetairoi as always.
  • Blood Knight: Anytime a powerful new warrior enters the war and he catches wind of it, he expresses a desire to fight them.
  • Friendly Rivalry: Forms a small one with Astolfo as fellow Riders on opposing sides during the battle between the Red and Black Factions until the Alliance is formed between the Factions.
  • Killed Off for Real: Dies in Chapter 24 after Karna nukes him and his army with Brahmastra Kundala.
  • Undying Loyalty: Toward his master, Waver, as he carries a lot of respect for him and refuses to let harm come to him. This is also despite not even remembering the previous Grail War where he also served under him.

Saber of Black: Siegfried

The hero from the "The Song of the Nibelungs" who slew the dragon Fafnir. Originally the Servant of Gordes Musik Yggdmillenia, he later becomes the Servant of Fiore Forvedge Yggdmillenia.
  • Ascended Extra: Far more prominent compared to his role in Apocrypha, where he died very early in the story.
  • Cool Sword: Balmung, as per canon.
  • Identical Stranger: Brynhild mistakes him for Sigurd when she attacks him in Chapter 22 because of how similar they are.
  • Master Swordsman: Comes with being part of the Saber class. During their fight, Mordred even considers his skill with a blade to rival, if not outright equal, her father King Arthur.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: His Noble Phantasm Armor of Fafnir grants him this except for a spot on his back. It's even improved upon thanks to a defensive charm given to him by Medea but it can be penetrated by weapons that bypass magical defenses such as Rogue Rider's scythe.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Was originally killed off rather early during the original story of Apocrypha after sacrificing himself to save Sieg's life. In this story said event never happens, and he later becomes the Servant of Fiore after she loses Chiron and Gordes is killed.

Rider of Black: Astolfo

One of the Twelve Paladins of Charlemagne. Originally the Servant of Celenike Icecolle Yggdmillenia, he later becomes the Servant of Sieg.

Caster of Black: Medea

A sorceress from Ancient Greece best known for her relationship with the Argonaut leader Jason. She is the Servant of Roche Frain Yggdmillenia.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Much more friendly and heroic compared to canon. Justified as her situation as a Servant is vastly different compared to her status canon in Fate/stay night.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Towards Jeanne, more than once expressing a desire to dress the latter up because of how beautiful she is.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Is known as the "Witch of Betrayal" and wears a dark cloak and hood, but she is one of the good guys.
  • Ironic Name: Despite her title as the "Witch of Betrayal", she's completely loyal and devoted to Roche.
  • In the Hood: Wears a hood over her head all the time.
  • Odd Friendship: With Astolfo and Elizabeth.
  • Parental Substitute: Towards Roche, trying to act as a supportive figure towards the young boy.

Berserker of Black: Elizabeth Báthory

The infamous Blood Countess of Hungary and the inspiration for Carmilla. She is the Servant of Caules Forvedge Yggdmillenia.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Cares about Vlad, and even affectionately refers to him as "Uncle", because he treats her respectfully, albeit strictly, and even helped Elizabeth to better her singing ability prior to the beginning of the war.
  • Little Bit Beastly: She has the horns and tail of a dragon due to her Innocent Monster skill distorting her appearance. She can also sprout wings on her back whenever she wants to fly.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Her Noble Phantasm, Báthory Erzsebet, is this. It takes the form of a castle with stereo speakers built into the walls which serve as an amplifier for Elizabeth when she lets out a sonic roar towards her opponent. She uses this to deflect Atalanta's own Noble Phantasm during Chapter 14.
  • It's Personal: Once she finds out that Vlad is dead, she's quick to demand who killed him and promises to repay the favor herself.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: She and Astolfo are basically this among their team.

    Masters of Red/Black 

Waver Velvet/El-Melloi II

A professor from the Clocktower who once took part in a Holy Grail War in the past as a young man. He is the Master of Iskandar.
  • Big Good: He starts out as the leader of the Red Faction and becomes one of the main leaders of the Alliance alongside Jeanne and Fiore.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's the leader of the Red Faction and is quick to agree to Fiore's suggestion for a temporary ceasefire between their groups in order to deal with the Rogue Servants that keep appearing.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Iskandar even if the former doesn't remember him from their last Holy Grail War together.

Reines El-Melloi Archisorte

The young head of the El-Melloi clan. She is the Master of Gilgamesh.
  • Ascended Extra: Was originally a minor character with a cameo in Apocrypha but is now a Master of Red herself.
  • The Ojou: Fits the trope the most among the characters.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Has shades of this with Gilgamesh, where two often trade barbs at each other but it's clear that both get along.

Gray

A hooded girl who's an apprentice to Waver and bears a striking similarity to Saber of Red. She is the Master of Achilles.
  • Blade on a Stick: She has her family lance Rhongomyniad locked away for safekeeping. It's actually the very same one Arthur used to kill Mordred.
  • Heroic Lineage: Unlike in canon, she actually is related to King Arthur.
  • Identical Stranger: With Mordred. Considering her true lineage, however, it's more of a case of Strong Family Resemblance even if Gray herself isn't related to Mordred as her line comes from Lucius.
  • In the Hood: Her outfit features one.
  • Luke, You Are My Father: Descendant to be precise, but she pulls this off towards Arthur as she reveals to him that she's descended from his son Lucius.
  • Mystical White Hair: She looks like a white-haired version of Mordred. It's actually a sign of her lineage as a descendant of Arthur's son, Lucius.
  • Sinister Scythe: Carries around a large scythe for combat and is quite efficient with it.

Kairi Shishigou

A necromancer and mercenary for hire. He is the Master of Mordred.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He's a necromancer with the Face of a Thug, but he's really a nice guy when you get to know him.
  • Face of a Thug: And he's not too happy about it.
  • Number Two: Towards Waver, basically acting as his second-in-command.
  • Parental Substitute: Somewhat plays the part for Mordred, acting as a supportive figure towards her in regards to her issues with her father and eventually pushes her to reconcile with him in Chapter 26.

Fiore Forvedge Yggdmillenia

The heir to the Yggdmillenia clan of magi and the older sister of Caules. She is the Master of Chiron, and later becomes the Master of Siegfried after the deaths of Chiron and Gordes.
  • Big Good: She becomes the new head of Yggdmillenia and the Black Faction as well as one of the main leaders of the Alliance alongside Jeanne and Wave.
  • Handicapped Badass: Much like in canon, she's disabled but not incapable of fighting either. This is later subverted as Gilgamesh gives her medicine that restores the usage of her legs without sacrificing her ability as a magus, although she needs to practice walking as she has never walked before.
  • You Are in Command Now: After Darnic's death, she becomes the new head of the Yggdmillenia clan and the Black Faction.

Caules Forvedge Yggdmillenia

Fiore's younger brother and the Master of Elizabeth. He looks out for his sister's safety during the Holy Grail War.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Joins the Holy Grail War mostly to help keep Fiore safe. Inverted in that he's actually the younger brother.
  • Birds of a Feather: Gets along well with Aya because of how similar their positions are in life.
  • Butt-Monkey: Tends to get the short end of the stick in comedic situations involving him.
  • Covert Pervert: He finds himself getting distracted by Serenity thanks to her revealing outfit.
  • Otaku: A fan of anime and especially the idol genre. It's actually through the latter bit that Elizabeth gets the idea to become an idol herself.

Roche Frain Yggdmillenia

A young prodigy who specializes in the creation of Golems. He is the Master of Medea.
  • Jerkass: Somewhat abrasive towards others, especially Caules. Medea is working on remedying that.
  • Morality Pet: Towards Medea, whose behavior in the story is partially a result of her wanting to be a good role model for Roche.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: As Avicebron is not his Servant and the circumstances being different, he is still alive and kicking.

Sieg

A homunculus that was chosen by Darnic as a test subject for one of Medea's experiments. He later gains Command Spells and becomes Astolfo's Master.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Instead of temporarily changing into Siegfried like in Fate/Apocrypha, Sieg can transform parts of himself into a dragon after receiving the heart of the Dragon of Colchis from Medea.
  • Badass Transplant: Is given a dragon heart by Medea which allows him to partially transform himself into a dragon. He becomes strong enough that he, together with Astolfo, can hold their ground against a Class-Card enhanced Beatrice.
  • Mystical White Hair: Has white hair and is a homunculus who gained dragon powers.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His abilities in general. Though they are powerful, Sieg has no real experience utilizing such abilities and thus has to practice doing so.

    Other Servants/Masters 
Servants and their Masters that aren't necessarily part of either Faction or were taken out early before the group heads out to Tokyo.

Lancer: Cu Chulainn

The Hound of Chulainn Setanta who is also known as Ireland's Child of Light. He is the Servant of Ayaka Tohsaka.
  • Blade on a Stick: His Noble Phantasm Gae Bolg, of course.
  • Bash Brothers: With Achilles, forming something of an instant friendship the moment they meet.
  • Face–Monster Turn: The Alliance loses him when he's killed by Lancelot. His Class Card is unfortunately recovered by Angelica, and Shirou's faction re-summon him to fight on their side as soon as they can.
  • Instant Runes: In addition to his spear, he is also able to use Primordial Runes. It's how he was able to locate Robin Hood and kill him by placing a tracking and repair rune on a piece of his cloak that he tore off.
  • One-Hit Kill: Gae Bolg, a spear that can reverse causality to ensure that it hits its targets through their hearts.
  • The Worf Barrage: His Gae Bolg attack is generally a one-hit kill move as it targets the heart by reversing causality. Just to show how powerful Karna is, the child of the sun god Surya survives it and shrugs it off, though it still leaves him wounded.

Ayaka Tohsaka

A member of the Tohsaka Family and granddaughter to Ayaka Sajyou. She is the Master of Cu Chulainn.

Archer of Black: Chiron

A wise centaur sage from Ancient Greece who taught many heroes like Achilles, Heracles, Jason and Perseus. He is the Servant of Fiore Forvedge Yggdmillenia.
  • Death by Adaptation: In comparison to Siegfried who lives, Chiron dies relatively early on during Act II at the hands of Rogue Rider, who is none other than his former student, Perseus.
  • Demoted to Extra: Due to dying, his role in this story is significantly reduced compared to canon.
  • The Mentor: Was this to both Achilles, Perseus and Heracles during his life.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Before his death, he takes on both Perseus and a bunch of Assassin of Black's personas by himself. While he dies he does manage to take out all of the personas and even inflict an arm injury on Perseus that completely hampers his fighting capabilities for the majority of ACT-2.

Lancer of Black: Vlad III / Vlad the Impaler

The infamous ruler of Wallachia known for impaling his enemies on stakes. He is the Servant of Darnic Prestone Yggdmillenia.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Is called "Uncle" by Elizabeth. They're not actually related but she comes to care about him to a great degree during their time together.
  • Birds of a Feather: Implied with Elizabeth, who also was born in Eastern Europe and whose legend associates her with vampires as well.
  • Berserk Button: Like in Fate/Apocrypha he does not take the name Dracula well and wishes to use the Grail to erase it and the stain on his reputation.
  • Honor Before Reason: Even when faced with Heracles, an opponent who his B-Rank Noble Phantasm can't even faze, he still refuses to use Legend of Dracula to give him an edge. It leads to his death when he and Darnic don't stop arguing about this before Heracles kills them.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: His Noble Phantasm Kazikli Bey allows him to conjure hundreds of stakes from the ground to impale his enemies. It's what he used to kill Berserker of Red twice.
  • Killed Off for Real: Much like in canon. However, how he dies is different here as in the original he was killed by Shirou. Here he's killed by Heracles on orders from Manaka.
  • Parental Substitute: Towards Elizabeth, briefly acting as a parent figure towards her since he sees her not as the Bloody Countess that she's known as but rather as a child that's just in need of proper guidance.

Darnic Prestone Yggdmillenia

The head of the Yggdmillenia clan and the grandfather of Fiore and Caules. He is the Master of Vlad and was a former participant of the Third Holy Grail War of Tokyo.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Not him, but his Servant. In canon, he was the Master of Fionn in the Third Holy Grail War. Here, he was the Master of Heracles in said War.
  • Killed Off for Real: As with Vlad, his death differs compared to canon. Instead of Shirou, he dies at the hands of Manaka and Heracles the end of Chapter 14 together with Vlad.

Gordes Musik Yggdmillenia

A member of the Yggdmillenia clan whose family is responsible for the creation of the homunculi that serve as their workforce. He is the Master of Siegfried.

Celenike Icecolle Yggdmillenia

A member of the Yggdmillenia clan who has a sadistic streak. She is the Master of Astolfo.

Rogue Faction

A group of Masters and Servants who exist outside the rules of the Great Holy Grail War and seek to use the Grail for their own ends. They are led by Shirou Kotomine.
    Shirou Kotomine 

Shirou Kotomine / Amakusa Shirou Tokisada

An overseer sent by the Church and the Master of Semiramis. It's later revealed that he's actually the Ruler-Class Servant of the Third Holy Grail War Amakusa Shirou Tokisada, and the overall leader of the Rogue Faction together with Julian Ainsworth.
  • Affably Evil: He remains courteous and polite with everyone, including his enemies, but can be ruthless in the pursuit of his goal of saving humanity.
  • Big Bad: While Manaka is the greater threat, he's more active as the main villain while she chooses to wait and watch as the Holy Grail War plays out until Chapter 29 when she attacks the Rogue Faction's base.
  • Did Not See That Coming: For all his planning and manipulations, he did not foresee the participation of Manaka and her stealing the Trifas Grail.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's one of the villains, but he'd rather keep the civilian populace completely uninvolved and avoid doing anything that could potentially harm them altogether. He also despises Manaka, calling her a witch on two occasions and opposes her attempt to summon the Beast of Revelation.
  • The Gadfly: Somewhat towards Julian.
  • Older Than They Look: Looks like he's in his late teens but has been around since the end of the Third Holy Grail War in the 1940s, making him about 70 years old in the current period.
  • Villain Has a Point: He refuses to align himself with the Alliance to fight Manaka, but he does raise many valid reasons for doing so. He, as a former Ruler, has already broken the laws of the Grail War several times over and would be punished for his actions immediately after the fact. Not to mention that if he does so and succeeds, the Rogue Faction and the Alliance would just go back to fighting, so he sees no point in teaming up since he doesn't stand to gain anything from it.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Intends on using the grail in order to better humanity by any means, including killing those who oppose him.

    Servants 

Lancer: Karna

A demigod hero from the Hindu epic Mahabharata who fought against the Pandavas. He is a Servant of Shirou Kotomine.
  • The Ace: The strongest fighter among the Servants of the Rogue Faction. He's able to go head-on with other powerful heroes like Arthur, Cu Chulainn, Achilles and Heracles with little to no difficulty.
  • Badass Cape: Has a cape made of the sun's fires secured to two pauldrons floating beside his shoulders.
  • BFS: Carries a massive golden spear into battle, and is incredibly skilled with it.
  • Eye Beams: He can fire a powerful laser called Brahmastra from his eye that can destroy the side of a mountain. He uses it against Achilles and Brynhild.
  • Fantastic Nuke: His Noble Phantasm Brahmastra Kundala is basically this. He uses it to kill Iskandar and his Army when they were within Ionian Hetairoi.
  • Made of Iron: During his fight with Cu Chulainn, he takes a direct hit to the heart from Gae Bolg which manages to bypass his invincible armor. Not only does he survive this and more or less shrugs off the fatal wound, but he also continues with the fight.
  • Mystical White Hair: Has white hair, and is a powerful demigod hero and warrior.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Like in Fate/Apocrypha, he is nearly invincible thanks to his Armor Noble Phantasm Kavacha and Kundala.
  • Odd Friendship: With Atalanta.
  • Playing with Fire: Can surround himself with fire (or more appropriately, solar flares) to make his attacks deadlier.
  • Strong and Skilled: It goes without saying given his performance in Fate/Apocrypha. His incredible fighting skills and absurdly powerful Noble Phantasms makes him one of the strongest Servants in the Holy Grail War.
  • The Stoic: He rarely shows emotions on his face, making it hard to tell what he's thinking.
  • Team Dad: Plays this role for the Rogue Faction Servants, being the one most likely to stop them from bickering with each other.
  • Worthy Opponent: Several, but special mention goes to Cu Chulainn who managed to wound him despite wearing his invincible armor.

Archer: Atalanta

A heroine from Ancient Greece known as the Chaste Huntress who took part in the hunt for the Calydonian Boar and is a member of the Argonauts. She is a Servant of Shirou Kotomine.
  • Archer Archetype: Primarily fights with a bow, is independent and quite aloof, although she is no slouch in close combat.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Robin likes to call her "Kitty" due to her lion ears and tail, much to her annoyance.
  • Friend to All Children: Her wish is to help out the children in the world.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Has lion ears and a tail, referencing how she was turned into a lioness at the end of her legend.
  • Multicoloured Hair: Her hair is green but becomes blonde at the ends.
  • Odd Friendship: With Karna whom she sometimes worries about. She's also rather cordial towards Perseus, mainly because he never tried to hit on her - something she would never have expected from a son of Zeus.
  • Rain of Arrows: Her Noble Phantasm Phoebes Catastrophe is basically this.
  • Token Good Teammate: Among the Rogue Faction Servants she's easily the most conflicted about her part in the war. Nonetheless, this doesn't stop her from fighting when necessary.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Her main desire is to help all children in the world. As a result, she's highly conflicted with the idea of fighting Manaka due to her appearance as a young girl.

Archer: Robin Hood

A noble rogue that is spoken of in tales from the British Isles who steals from the rich and gives to the poor, although he is one of the many people who took the name of 'Robin Hood'. He is the Servant of Beatrice Flowerchild.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Robin's hand was cut off by Arthur when the latter saved Ayaka in chapter 10.
  • Butt-Monkey: Gets the short end of the stick compared to his comrades.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Tries to be this, for the most part, making use of magically enhanced modern weaponry and other tactics when pitted against his opponents in a fight.
  • In the Hood: Has a green cloak and hood which is also his Noble Phantasm No Face May King, allowing him to become invisible and undetectable by any person, although he cannot use Yew Bow when it is active.
  • Killed Off for Real: Dies in Chapter 24 at the hands of Cu Chulainn, who destroys his Class Card to make sure he doesn't come back.
  • No Kill Like Overkill: The first time he dies, it's at the hands of Gilgamesh, who impales him dozens of times with the Gates of Babylon but Gil doesn't realize he needs to destroy Robin's Class Card to kill him for good, so Robin comes back later.
  • Poisonous Person: His Noble Phantasm Yew Bow makes use of poison to deal a lot of damage to his enemies. Cu Chulainn got struck by this and was significantly injured by it, not that it stops him from killing Robin.

Rider: Perseus

A demigod hero and son of Zeus from Ancient Greece famous for killing the Gorgon Medusa. He is a Servant of Shirou Kotomine and while he serves him, he does not care much about the Rogue Faction or its goals.
  • Cool Mask: Wears one in his first appearance that hides his identity even from Jeanne's ability. He takes it off in Chapter 14 and does not put it on again.
  • Cool Horse: The Pegasus he summons is one.
  • Happily Married: When Atalanta muses about the fact he never even tried to flirt with her, he answers that Andromeda was and will always be the only woman for him.
  • Incest Is Relative: Sort of. He and Heracles are the sons of Zeus, and Perseus is Heracles' half-brother as well as his great-grandfather through his granddaughter.
  • Nothing Personal: He tells Achilles that killing Chiron with Assassin of Black was just him doing his job. It only serves to anger the Hero of Troy due to the 'empty' way Perseus said it.
  • Pegasus: His Noble Phantasm Bellerophon has him summon one as his mount.
  • Sinister Scythe: Though described as a sword, his Noble Phantasm Harpe resembles one. It can penetrate magical defenses, making it an effective counter for Siegfried and Achilles.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Chiron broke his arm in Chapter 14 which hampers his combat ability for most of ACT-2 though he still supports his teammates using Bellerophon to provide aerial support. He fully recovers by ACT-3.

Berserker: Lancelot du Lac

A Knight of the Round Table touted as one of its greatest members infamous for his affair with Queen Guinevere. He is the Servant of Angelica.
  • Berserk Button: Again, puns aside, his is pushed whenever he sees Arthur. However, an even greater one would be Mordred as the moment he first sees her his focus immediately shifts upon realizing who she is and attacking her while ignoring Arthur.
  • Broken Ace: He was once one of the greatest knights to ever live, but his affair with Guinevere led to his disgrace and exile, and the fall of Camelot led him to become a wandering monk who later went mad in life. He now exists as a Servant of madness consumed almost entirely by his hatred.
  • Black Knight: To contrast against Arthur's White Knight, his armor is completely black and surrounded by black fog. Only Jeanne realizes who he is at first glance, but she keeps it to herself, knowing that Arthur wouldn't react well to knowing his identity.
  • Cool Sword: Though he was summoned without it, the Ainsworths were able to provide Arondight for him.
  • Improvised Weapon: His Noble Phantasm Knight of Honour allows him to turn anything he touches into a Noble Phantasm provided it can be conceivably used as a weapon. This ranges from a tree, a stone pillar, a Harrier jet, a rocket launcher, and a street lamp.
  • Screaming Warrior: As a Berserker, he is incapable of speech, causing him to growl and roar in battle.
  • Strong and Skilled: Like in Fate/Zero, he retains his incredible fighting skills despite his madness and rage clouding his sanity, and can turn anything he touches into a Noble Phantasm. He was able to skillfully fight Arthur, Cu Chulainn, and even Gilgamesh.

Saber: Richard I / Richard the Lionheart

A King of England who fought in the Third Crusade and is considered to be a great military leader and warrior. He is a Servant of Shirou Kotomine summoned by the Rogue Faction in order to make up for Berserker of Red's loss.
  • Badass Cape: Has a red cape over his left shoulder.
  • Bling of War: His armor is described as being ornately designed.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He tried asking Jeanne, Atalanta, Semiramis, and Angela to spend time with him, but all of them refused.
  • Honor Before Reason: He challenges Arthur to a duel to the death in one-on-one combat and refused the aid of his ally, Robin Hood. However, he ends up wasting most of his mana in the fight and would have died had Atlanta not intervened. He even acknowledges this.
  • Identical Stranger: He and Arthur strongly resemble one another.
  • Improvised Weapon: Somewhat similar to Rogue Berserker, his Noble Phantasm Excalibur allows him to turn anything he grabs into a copy of Excalibur in terms of function.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Towards King Arthur who was his idol in life and is thrilled at the chance of fighting against.
  • Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: He challenges Arthur to a one-on-one fight, to which his opponent agrees to, with no outside help from anyone.
  • Master Swordsman: Is able to match Arthur's swordsmanship and manages to wound him, and he only lost because he ran out of mana. He later fights Brynhild and was able to keep up with her despite the latter being stronger than him.
  • Multicoloured Hair: Has blond hair with streaks of red which the historical Richard had.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Supports Shirou in his goal because it is a lofty ideal despite all the bad things the former had done. He simply believes Shirou needs a guiding hand to make sure nothing goes wrong.
  • Sixth Ranger: Compared to his comrades, he was only summoned when the story was well into ACT-2.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Due to receiving an injury from fighting Arthur, Richard spent the latter half of ACT-2 recovering in the Hanging Gardens. He is back in action by ACT-3.

    Former Red/Black Servants 

Assassin of Red: Semiramis

The legendary Wise Queen of Assyria who is considered to be one of the first people in history to commit murder by poison. She is the Servant of Shirou Kotomine.
  • The Beastmaster: She can create and control Dragon Tooth Warriors as well as the poisonous serpentine Bašmu.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Perhaps one of the earliest examples in legend.
  • Lady of Black Magic: A beautiful but deadly spellcaster who controls the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and can conjure powerful magic spells from within.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Like in Apocrypha, despite being an Assassin she primarily uses magic rather than any assassination techniques, making her the Rogue Faction's Caster by default since their actual Caster doesn't have any offensive magic spells and is rather weak.
  • Number Two: Of the Rogue Faction members, she is essentially Shirou's second in command.
  • Poisonous Person: She has poison as one of her weapons, although she has yet to poison anyone.
  • You Remind Me of X: Gilgamesh compares her to Ishtar at one point, something that Semiramis finds very complimenting. Mordred also finds her similar to her own mother, Morgan Le Fay.

Caster of Red: William Shakespeare

One of the most famous English playwrights in history. He is the Servant of Shirou Kotomine by proxy of his original Master.
  • Distressed Dude: Was captured by Manaka in Chapter 29 with the intent of turning him to her side.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Because of his hamminess and overbearing nature, his allies tend to get exasperated with him fairly quickly.
  • Non-Action Guy: As he states, he's a poet and writer, so physical combat isn't his forte.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Much like Astolfo and Elizabeth to the Black Faction, he serves this role amongst his team members.

Berserker of Red: Lu Bu Fengxian

A general from the Three Kingdoms era of China infamous for his numerous betrayals and his mighty battle prowess. He is the Servant of Shirou Kotomine by proxy of his original Master.
  • Blade on a Stick: His main Noble Phantasm God Force is a Ji that can change into a bow for long-range attacks.
  • Killed Off for Real: By Vlad III during Chapter 14.
  • Not Quite Dead: Was killed by Vlad III in Chapter 8 but it was a ruse by Julian to have him turned into a Class Card Servant and add him to the Rogue Faction's numbers without Jeanne or anyone else realizing it.
  • Screaming Warrior: Is incapable of speech and can only growl and roar. The only time he speaks is after Vlad kills him again and he asks him to remember him as he dies.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Hard to know a mindless Berserker who has no real stakes in the Holy Grail War, though he does ask Vlad to remember him as he dies.

Assassin of Black: Hundred Faced Hassan

A Servant comprised of multiple personas whose identity is the nineteenth and final person to bear the title of Hassan-I-Sabbah. They are the Servant of Julian Ainsworth.
  • Adaptational Badass: Compared to their showing in Fate/Zero, they are far more dangerous than in canon since Shirou was able to procure better weapons for them to make better use of their abilities and numbers.
  • Killed Off for Real: Is killed by Serenity in Chapter 31.
  • Me's a Crowd: Their main Zabaniya is being divided into eighty individuals.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: Towards the Black Faction as by the time the story begins, Assassin and their Master are the last members of the Black Faction to join. They later end up betraying the group, having been in league with Shirou Kotomine the entire time.

    Masters 

Julian Ainsworth

A youth who is a member of the Ainsworth family, the creators of the Class Cards. He is the Master of Assassin of Black.

Angelica

A blonde-haired woman in service to the Ainsworth family. She is the Master of Lancelot.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After getting captured by Manaka in Chapter 30 and having her Command Seals and mastery over Lancelot taken from her, she wonders if this trope is in effect for taking Cu Chulainn's Class Card after killing him with Lancelot.
  • Lack of Empathy: She doesn't care if they have to harm or endanger civilians to achieve their goals.
  • Mythology Gag: In Prisma Illya she's the wielder of the Gilgamesh Class-Card. In this fic, she's the Master of Lancelot who in Fate/Zero served as something of a counter to Gilgamesh's abilities.

Beatrice Flowerchild

A red-haired girl in service to the Ainsworth family. She is the Master of Robin Hood.
  • A-Cup Angst: Is not amused by the fact that Angelica and Semiramis have rather large tracks of land.
  • Butt-Monkey: Like Master, like Servant, she serves this role together with Robin.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She's rather easy to annoy.

Manaka's Group

A group formed by Manaka Sajyou made up of herself and the Servants who fought in the Third Holy Grail War. Though their objective is to raise the Beast of Revelation, they're currently content watching the Alliance and Rogue Faction fight.
    Manaka Sajyou 

Manaka Sajyou

The older sister of Ayaka Sajyou and the former Master of Arthur who is believed to have died at his hands during the Third Holy Grail War. She seeks to use the Beast of Revelation as a means to grant her beloved prince's wish.
  • A-Cup Angst: Humorously enough, she has a case of this when she meets Jeanne. Since she died at the age of 14, her body stopped aging as well. As a result, she's quite jealous of the former's rack as she's likely to never develop one of her own.
  • The Ageless: She hasn't aged past fourteen in the sixty years since her death.
  • Ax-Crazy: Considering the childlike glee she has in sacrificing children to achieve her goals and how unnervingly giddy she is when her Servants kill people, it's clear that there's something very, very wrong with her.
  • Back from the Dead: Died at the hands of Arthur in the previous Holy Grail War but has somehow returned via the power of the Grail.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Ayaka's Abel. She even tried to sacrifice Ayaka to fuel the Grail because she did not want to sacrifice Arthur to it.
  • The Dreaded: Her mere presence is enough to have everyone immediately go on the alert.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: She primarily works from the shadows of the Grail War. Even after she reveals herself, she's content to wait as the Alliance and Rogue Faction fight and kill each other before making her move until recently when she mounts an attack on the Rogue Faction's base in Chapter 29.
  • Hero's Evil Predecessor: She's the former master of Arthur and the overall villain of the story, so she serves as this to Jeanne.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Like in canon, Arthur stabs her from behind with Excalibur when he betrayed her.
  • Older Than They Look: Has the appearance of a 14-year old girl but like Shirou, she is far older than her appearance suggests.
  • Red Baron: Ozymandias calls her Potnia Theron, hinting at her connection to the Beast of Revelation.
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: She still has the impalement wound she received from Arthur sixty years ago when he killed her. She considers it to be a mark of love from him.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She is somewhat this, wanting to destroy the current world to help restore Arthur's fallen kingdom.
  • Yandere: Much like in canon, she's this towards Arthur.

    Manaka's Servants 
The six Servants who fought and died in the Third Holy Grail War of Tokyo during World War II. They have been brought back by Manaka and placed under her control to aid in her objective of raising the Beast of Revelation.

Archer: Arash

A hero from Iranian mythology whose single shot stopped the war between the Iranians and Turanians at the cost of his life. Friendly and down to earth, he gets along well with his comrades.
  • Affably Evil: Evil is stretching it, but he's rather friendly for someone who's aiding Manaka. This is partly due to the fact that he's Brainwashed and Crazy along with the other Servants from the Third Holy Grail War.
  • Emergency Transformation: A villainous example happens in Chapter 31. Just when Shirou had him pinned down and was about to cleanse him of Manaka's influence, she turns him into an Alter version of himself to stop Shirou from doing so and to continue the fight against him.
  • Friendly Sniper: Deadly with a bow and is quite heroic by nature.
  • Suicide Attack: His Noble Phantasm Stella is a powerful attack that kills him after using it once, forcing a Mutual Kill at best or a Senseless Sacrifice at worst. He uses it against Mordred but fails because Gilgamesh shielded her. However, thanks to Manaka having control over the Tokyo Grail, she manages to bring him back no worse for wear later on with all of his memories intact, bypassing his Noble Phantasm's major demerit.

Lancer: Brynhild

A Valkyrie from Norse mythology famous for falling in love with the hero Sigurd and killing him before committing suicide to be with him in death.
  • BFS: Wields a massive spear as her main weapon that can get even bigger and heavier.
  • Instant Runes: Can use runes and is highly proficient in it. She uses them to summon golems against Shishigou and Fiore to keep them away while she fights Siegfried.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Not to the same level as Heracles, but she is noted to be incredibly fast and strong despite her delicate appearance, able to keep up with Siegfried, Karna, Cu Chulainn, and Richard the Lionheart.
  • Mystical White Hair: She has long white hair, is a former Divine Spirit, and a powerful Servant in her own right.
  • Playing with Fire: Can surround herself with blue flames to enhance her attacks.
  • The Power of Love: Weaponized due to her Noble Phantasm Brynhild Romantia. The stronger her feelings towards her target the stronger she herself becomes as seen with her fight against Siegfried, being able to keep up with him even with 3 Command Spells enhancing his abilities.
  • Yandere: Towards Sigurd and Arthur. Woe to anyone who reminds her of either as both Siegfried and Richard would find out the hard way.

Rider: Ramesses II / Ozymandias

The ancient Pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Egypt most well known for his relationship with Moses, the man who liberated the Hebrews. Of the six Servants, he is the only one not completely under Manaka's control and is waiting for a chance to betray her.
  • The Ace: He's one of the strongest Servants imaginable. In the previous war he partook in, it took five Servants that were empowered by the Ruler of the Third Holy Grail War to successfully defeat him, and this was after his Master had been killed by Assassin and his mana supply was wearing thin.
  • The Beast Master: One of his Noble Phantasms The Sphinx of Abu el-Hol is a powerful Phantasmal Beast sphinx that he rides on, and he can summon even more from it which is no small feat.
  • Cool Boat: His other Noble Phantasm Mesektet is a floating barge capable of shooting powerful sunbeams.
  • Red Baron: Calls himself the King of Kings which pisses off Gilgamesh. He later gets called the Sun King by the latter, a title he finds complimentary.
  • Worthy Opponent: Sees Arthur as this, wanting to have a rematch with him together with the latter's new allies. He also develops this attitude towards Gilgamesh and vice versa as the two quickly come to respect the other after their initial bout.

Caster: Tamamo-no-Mae

A famous fox-spirit from Japanese mythology. She has a cheerful personality that masks the darkness within her.

Assassin: Hassan of Serenity

One of the nineteen people to inherit the name of Hassan-I-Sabbah who utilizes poison as her Zabaniya.
  • Cool Mask: Like all the Hassan, she wears their iconic skull mask to conceal her face.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Wears a revealing outfit and Caules catches himself staring at her during her fight against Elizabeth.
  • Knife Nut: Uses throwing knives as her main weapons.
  • One-Woman Army: She is this thanks to her ability to spread her poison through the air as well through touch. It's how she takes out Hundred Face Hassan as well.
  • Poisonous Person: Her main Zabaniya ability. She nearly offs Caules with it in Chapter 22 if not for Gilgamesh's antidote. She later uses this to kill Hundred Face Hassan and poisons Atalanta in Chapter 31.

Berserker: Heracles

A demigod son of Zeus famous for his great strength and for completing Twelve Labours, and is considered one of the greatest heroes of Ancient Greece.
  • An Axe to Grind: Wields a giant golden axe into battle.
  • The Dreaded: Treated as such by several characters. Considering that he's Heracles, it really isn't surprising.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Despite his size, he is both fast and strong as Vlad III finds out.
  • Mythology Gag: His weapon and general appearance in this story are direct references to Heracles' third ascension form from Fate/Grand Order.
  • Physical God: Again, he's Heracles and, given how strong he is, this really isn't a shock.
  • Resurrective Immortality: Like in Fate/stay night, his Noble Phantasm God Hand grants him 12 lives and he can only be killed when all his lives are extinguished, which is easier said than done.
  • Screaming Warrior: Like Lancelot and Berserker of Red. The only time he speaks is in Chapter 31 when he regenerates after being struck by Vasavi Shakti and telling Karna that the Rogue Faction has to work with the Alliance if they want to defeat Manaka.

Other Characters (Warning! Spoilers)

  • Almighty Mom: Implied to be one to Tokiomi.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Manaka's Cain.

  • Historical Gender Flip: As this story is partly based on Fate/Prototype, Merlin is a woman.
  • Mystical White Hair: Has long white hair and is a powerful and immortal mage.
  • Spanner in the Works: Is implied to be the one who placed a seal in the Trifas Grail to prevent anyone from accessing it. Not even Manaka could bypass it which is why she took it with her. She might also be the reason why Jeanne went to Britain to summon Arthur as her Servant.

  • Your Cheating Heart: As per the legends.

    The Son 

Lucius

The son of Arthur and Guinevere whose passing became a catalyst for Camelot's ruin.
  • Back from the Dead: According to Guinevere in chapter 17, he was seen with Morgan when she was in the convent looking for her. Arthur is dubious about it but she was sure that he was their son.
  • Children Are Innocent: He was described as being precious and full of wonder.
  • Death of a Child: His death is one of the many factors, if not the major factor, that led to things going south for Camelot.
  • For Want of a Nail: As Arthur notes, had Mordred revealed who she was to him well before or after Lucius's death, or had he not died at all, things would have turned out very differently for Camelot.

  • Heel–Face Turn: Once Camelot had fallen, she came to regret her actions to the point that she brought back Lucius with the use of the Holy Grail. She later returned him to Guinevere as she stated that now that Arthur had passed, he could no longer be of any use.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She experienced this once the mess in Camelot became inevitable and the Kingdom fell.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Implies she is responsible for Lucius' death in the hopes that Mordred would take the throne.
