Aaron Skyfield, Master of Diomedes, King of Argos
- "An inferior being such as yourself should be smarter than this. Just die, will you?"
Aaron seeks perfection more than anything. His quest saw him banished from the Magic Association after they discovered his research. Aaron had been studying the Dead Apostles, and using his own powers of biomancy, was on the threshold of becoming one himself. The Association foiled his plans however, and now he seeks the Grail to claim what slipped through his fingers.
- Badass in a Nice Suit
- Body Horror: It took Aaron years to get his body into the shape its in, and to improve it requires hours of concentration and intense pain as he manually changes his own body's makeup.
- Goal-Oriented Evolution: Aaron, though not a full Dead Apostle, considers himself better than every other human he meets. He plans to use the Grail to make himself into a full Dead Apostle, or perhaps even greater.
- Now that he is a Dead Apostle, he'd like to stay that way. Unfortunately this involves "feeding".
- Healing Factor: A ridiculously effective one now that he's a Dead Apostle. Got a weapon that leaves unhealing wounds? Aaron will ditch the whole limb to bypass it.
- Immune to Bullets: His bones at least. His skin is nothing special.
- Neutral Evil: He doesn't care about anyone but himself. The only reason he hasn't murdered all of Archwood City is due to the Overseer's rule set.
- Pragmatic Villainy: He knows when its time to suck it up and apologize, as he did after his fight with Mike. Though its more because Jeanne could kill him in seconds than it is any feeling of guilt.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Diomedes's blue.
- Super Strength: Oh yes. Enough to kill a human with a single punch.
- Unskilled, but Strong: He has no trained fighting skills at all, and no weapons. Good thing he can hit like a train.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: The more he gets hurt, the less control he has over his physical form, the less control he has, the more insane he gets.

Emilia Archibald, Master of Enkidu
- "Here in this city, I am king."
The current head of the Archibald (not THAT Archibald) corporate empire, a family owned smorgasbord of big name corporations and franchises spanning almost a half a dozen generations, all the way back to the Industrial Revolution. Emilia's family is the wealthiest in the East Coast, if not the country, and she reigns over Archwood City like a king. At least, she likes to think she does.
While not a magus herself, Emilia possesses vast resources available to few other Masters, including almost complete control of Archwood's corporate resources and businesses, as well as a large number of armored vehicles, helicopters, and other specialty equipment all belonging to her privately owned and operated PMC. While she has little training in magic beyond what she managed to acquire in the process of preparing to summon Enkidu, she has extensive experience in finance and business, and can operate a number of special vehicles, in addition to having a large amount of firearms experience.
- Berserk Button: Snake presses a big one when he blows up the Atlas Spire.
- Casual Danger Dialog: Delivers some of this to Shakespeare when she basically tells him she's going to hunt him down... just for interrupting her lunch.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Of a sort. She is completely incapable of understanding how Enkidu can be so completely at peace with nature, and abstain from the corrupt intricacies of modern society.
- The Gunslinger: Carries a 9mm on her at all times.
- It's All About Me
- It's Personal: With Snake.
- N.G.O. Superpower: The Archibald family borders on this.
- Not Worth Killing: Subverted; Emilia won't kill you herself, sure. She'll just have her sniper do it for her instead.
- Rich Bitch
- Small Name, Big Ego: Appears to be this. While the Archibald family really is all that and a bag of chips, very few people have heard of them. They've just heard of the companies they own.

Evander Barthomeloi, Master of Hassan i Sabbah of the Hundred Faces
Felicia Weinberg, Master of Arturia Pendragon
Florina Winester, Master of Medusa
Gale Vallingtill, Master of Sir Kay
- "Are you stupid or something?!"
Gale comes from a long line of mages that has practically died out. Being the very last of the the Vallingtill family line, Gale has lived on her own and in secrecy, in order to keep her special ability hidden. She practiced the arts of her family's healing magic for many years, even as a child, and eventually perfected it.
After being forced to kill a mage that was going to bring public attention to her existence to the Mage's Association, she found out from the dying magus that a war for the Holy Grail was going to begin. She's participating in the Holy Grail War in order to fulfill her wish to be genuinely cared for as a human being, something she has never once had the pleasures of experiencing due to being treated as just a tool for healing by her friends, the Mage's Association, and even her own parents.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita
- Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Gale has a stuffed black rabbit. Has yet to be revealed why she has it.
- Luminescent Blush: Whenever she's arguing with Sir Kay
- Neutral Good: Gale is morally correct, however, she's willing to do a bit of dirty work if it means victory and protecting others.
- Parental Neglect: Somewhat subverted, in that they didn't really care about her, where as they cared more for her inheriting and developing the family's magic.
- The Medic: To the point where she's titled The Sewing Life Alchemist.
- Tsundere: Type A, all the way.
- Twin Tails
- Weapon of Choice: Daggers.
- What If?: She's basically the what if love child of Rin Tohsaka and Shou Tucker.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Quite possibly an S Rank.
Ithaca Martelli, Master of Sir Tristan
Jackie Lee, Master of Sun Wukong
James Villach, Master of Fafnir
Jesse James, Master of Perseus
- "Oh Percy~"
A not-so Classy Cat-Burglar who's built a lifestyle around exploiting men, Jesse is the second richest person living in Archwood, and is looking to get richer. Quick. To this end, she's sought out the Holy Grail in an attempt to become the wealthiest person in history, thus proving once and for all she is quite possibly the most selfish person alive.
Has an... interesting relationship with her Servant, Perseus, on account of her lineage and Perseus' occupation.
- Conspicuous Consumption: Her apartment, complete with a life-size statue of herself.
- Deus Sex Machina: Moreso than usual in the Nasuverse. Vampires have blood. Succubi have... yeah...
- Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male
- Friends with Benefits: With Perseus.
- Horny Devils: Is 7/8 succubus.
- Instant Seduction: An ability of hers. In the case of Perseus though, she sort of just skips the seduction part.
- Money, Dear Boy
- Money Fetish
- Odd Couple: While not exactly a couple, she and Perseus make for an odd duo.
- STD Immunity
Jessica Harway, Master of EMIYA
Jon Archwood, Master of Circe
Jozef Vlkov, Master of Genghis Khan
Kaleb Doles, Master of Jack The Ripper
- "Oh, I do hope that you know that you're going to die now."
The best way to describe Kaleb... would be that he's a bit of a Jerkass. He loves manipulating people, loves to see people suffer, loves to cause mayhem, and loves to break the rules. The only way for him to feel or experience any kind of happiness, is to see others suffer and whither in pain. Whether emotionally or psychically, he just loves to see people suffer... just so that he can get a bit of amusement from it.
After being gifted with his family's Crest, he came across a grimoire in his parents chest. Reading through it, he learned how to use necromancy. What he did next... well, to make things simple, let's just say that he resurrected a few corpses from a nearby graveyard, killed his own parents, and burned down his house... all with a cruel smile upon his face. He wishes to obtain the Holy Grail so that he can have it unleash all the evils upon the world... and have it provide him the greatest entertainment ever.
You could say that he's a Kotomine who has fully embraced in his dark inner self.
- Bishōnen: He's very handsome.
- Jerkass: He kills people, toys with women's hearts, cheats, and he would blatantly lie and insult people just to get a kick. He then takes this Up to Eleven by licking the tears off one of his victim's face.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He's this when his hair isn't up.
- Night of the Living Mooks: Naturally, considering he's a Necromancer.
- Stoic Spectacles: Double bonus points for having long hair tied in a ponytail.
- Self-Made Orphan
- Serial Killer: Naturally.
- Sexy Spectacles
- The End of the World as We Know It: It's his goal to unleash all the worlds evil unto the world, effectively causing everyone to suffer for the rest of their lives.

A young Magus whose parents experimented on in order to awaken his Origin, "Honesty".

Stuart Remington, Master of Uther Pendragon
The enigmatic Master of Uther Pendragon. Not much is known about him besides the fact that he is an accomplished magus, and that he has what seems, to most, to be a very unpleasant and controlling personality. Owns a beachside villa in Archwood, and is a frequent customer of luxury clothing stores.
- Badass in a Nice Suit
- Control Freak
- The Chessmaster: Summoned Berserker specifically because Mad Enhancement gave him as much control over his Servant as desired, allowing him to shut off free will at a moment's notice.
- Expy: Of Tohsaka Tokiomi
- Kill It with Fire
- Razor Wind
Tristan Alyan, Master of Vlad III The Impaler

Vincent Brycen, Master of The Black Knight

A troubled young man whose parents were murdered right before his eyes. Swearing to rid the city of the evil that took their lives, Vincent honed himself to become an impartial weapon for justice.

The Black Knight
- "Who's NEXT?!"
The Servant summoned by Gale, a boisterous, hotheaded and somewhat arrogant Knight of the Round Table. The son of Sir Ector, and Arturia's stepbrother, Kay is also one of her first knights and often works as her "bouncer" and bodyguard. Though he does not often show it, he really does care deeply for his sister.
He claims to join the War only for fun, but in reality, he wants to use the Grail's power to finally give Arturia some happiness in life. Good luck making him admit that, though.
- Badass Boast: Will do this often. He thinks this is a part of being a true hero.
- Big Brother Instinct: Towards Arturia.
- Big Brother Bully: What he acts like.
- Captain Oblivious: Big time.
- Cool Sword: Is using Caliburn.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Bedivere, bordering on Ho Yay.
- Irony: His Master is a healer. He deals wounds that don't heal.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Knight in Shining Armor: Subverted. He doesn't act like one.
- Large Ham: Another aspect of true heroes.
- Mighty Glacier: A STR. D AGI.
- Secret Keeper: Arturia's. Back in the day.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps
- Small Name, Big Ego: While he's not unknown, he's not as famous as Lance..
- Tsundere: Towards his sister.
Lancelot du Lac
- "Can we go to the party, Master? Please, please, please, please, plleeeeeaaasssseeeeee~?!"
The very same legendary eight-headed dragon who was only able to be slain by the legendary storm god, Susanoo, and after being tricked by him. Yamata-no-Orochi, or Yami as she calls herself, is a very... strange Servant to say the least. Unlike her legend, which portrays her as a violent and evil creature, she is surprisingly very kind and gentle... almost child-like even. However, it's debatable whether or not the 'kind and sweet' Yami is actually the 'real' Yami. Either way, the cheery Servant usually has an excuse for anything she does... and will beg and plea until her wishes come to fruition.
She lives up to her name as a 'Hero-Killer', being capable of literally knocking down all the other Servants', including even the fastest of the Servants, Agility down many ranks along with being able to create mighty storms with just a single swing of her legendary sword which is literally a part of her; Kusanagi, The Grass-Cutting Sword.
- Badass Adorable
- Beneath the Mask: Yami has a hidden serious side which she only shows when she's taking an opponent very seriously, or it is someone who she holds a strong grudge towards.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Yami is incredibly nice, but she is also very powerful.
- Beware the Silly Ones: On top of being incredibly nice... she's also quite a goof.
- Cute Clumsy Girl
- Dark and Troubled Past: Specifically the moment where Susanoo killed her 'sisters', and she was powerless to stop him due to him tricking her.
- Jabba Table Manners: This is played so straight during her first visit to a restaurant, that the scene was compared to a pack of wolves eating a buffalo...
- Jack-of-All-Stats: As a Saber, she has naturally high, yet fairly balanced stats, minus Luck, thanks to her status as a true dragon.
- Power of the Storm: She's able to control the storms themselves, along with winds thanks to Kusanagi, or Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi; The Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven.
- The Klutz
- Speaks Fluent Animal: Slightly subverted, in that Yami can speak to animals... but she tends to mess things up.
- Send in the Clones: Not exactly clones, but one of Yami's Noble Phantasms allows her to summon her seven sisters... who all look exactly like Yami, except more serpent-like.
- "The path of a magus is one filled with nothing but bloodshed. How can you say that you're not accustomed to killing and yet call yourself a magus? It's contradictory."
The Servant of Jessica Harway, and the same Archer of Fate/stay night fame. What exactly he's doing here with no Shirou to be found isn't really clear, but it seems he hasn't changed a bit.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: By far one of the most capable fighters in terms of strategy and experience.
- Bow and Sword, in Accord
- Deadpan Snarker
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Preventing his Master from making the same choices he did seems to be becoming his new goal in life.
- Sarcastic Devotee: Same as always.
- Unwanted Assistance: Of a sort. Archer really wishes Jessica would stop pushing herself so hard and let him do the work.
- Weak, but Skilled
Sargon of Akkad
Diomedes is a Greek Hero that fought in The Trojan War, commonly thought of as the second greatest warrior and tactician in the Greek host behind Achilles and Odysseus respectively. He is most well known for defeating both Hector and Aeneas, as well as wounding Aphrodite and Ares within minutes of each other.
Diomedes is a liar, first and foremost. Its reflected in his skills and Noble Phantasms, and everything he does in battle is done to mislead a foe. His main skill is King of Tactics, which grants him the ability to use the skills of any class, save for Caster or Berserker. Combined with his Noble Phantasm, Armory of Hephaestus, Diomedes is able to disguise himself as any class. This pairing of skill and Phantasm only exists to hide his true weapon, the Lance of Athena, which can pierce through armor as if it wasn't there at all.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: Like his Master, he enjoys modern fashion to a remarkable extent.
- Blade on a Stick: His main Noble Phantasm, the Lance of Athena.
- Bling of War: Averted and played straight. Averted in that Diomedes's Noble Phantasms are all plain looking weapons, meant to disguise how powerful they are. However, his armor is black with gold trim.
- Bodyguarding a Badass: While not weaker than Aaron, Diomedes doesn't have to babysit him.
- Bow and Sword, in Accord: In addition to his sword, he has his spear and a belt of daggers.
- Consummate Liar: Oh yes. He is not incapable of telling the truth however, and doesn't really enjoy lying overtly.
- Forged by the Gods: His Armory of Hephaestus.
- Drinking with the enemy: As a cultured Hero, fighting isn't everything. Diomedes wants to enjoy his time in the world again. Fighting is only one of life's joys.
- Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Averted, while he is a Greek hero, he knew that armor and helmets were absolutely necessary. What is he, Achilles?
- "I enjoy the food as I eat it. I like the feel of clothes as I wear them. But once I'm full I don't need any further food until I get hungry again. If I wear too many clothes at the same time it starts to feel uncomfortable. Why more clothes when one is all I need? And I find something something else I want to wear then I'll wear it and enjoy it while it last. I'll always remember the enjoyment I got out of things... but why dwell on that and leave them somewhere I might get them again when I'm enjoying something else at the time?"
The wildman befriended by the great king Gilgamesh, and perhaps his only equal in the world, Enkidu is quite possibly the strongest Servant in the war, possessing both terrifying stats and an excellent Noble Phantasm. His abilities far outstrip most other Servants, and his Presence Detection ability makes it so no one can hide from him.
He has yet to take any significant action, however, strong as he may be. His Master, Emilia Archibald, seems as intent on playing by the rules as she is on breaking them, taking every opportunity to exploit the loopholes in the system while taking care to mind the restrictions. In a way, their strategy and their relationship mirrors that of Enkidu's last friend, Gilgamesh, to whom Emilia shares a queer resemblance. Who knows how this will turn out...
- Anime Anatomy: Is... ill-equipped down there, so to speak. Likely a byproduct of him not actually being human.
- The Anti-Nihilist
- Artificial Human
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: Frustratingly androgynous.
- Friendly Enemy: With Sargon of Akkad.
- Lightning Bruiser: Has A+ AGL to compliment his absurd strength, making him less of a tank and more of a walking freight train.
- Nature Hero
- Shapeshifter Weapon
- Speaks Fluent Animal
- Super Strength: A++ STR
- World's Strongest Man: Stronger than any canonical Servant, including Heracles who could break buildings with his swings alone.
Vlad III The Impaler
- "How good it is to feel that sting again..."
Yes, that Genghis Khan. Summoned by Jozef Vlkov, Rider specializes in hit and run tactics, as is standard for her class. She has unusually high stats and Magic Resistance, and possesses an exceptionally strong Noble Phantasm in the form of The Army of the Khan, an Anti-Army Noble Phantasm which is exactly what it sounds like.
Often comes off as intimidating, especially towards her Master, and tends to act in a very bold, straightforward manner. However, she is by no means stupid, and is perhaps one of the War's most pragmatic Servants, intent on winning the War using whatever means she deems necessary. Her goal is to attain true incarnation, and conquer the world once again. She takes everything in her path and makes it hers, and lays to waste what she does not want. It is this combined with her tactical ability that makes her out to be one of the most potentially dangerous Servants currently on the board.
- Badass Army: Her Noble Phantasm allows her to summon her entire army of Mongol warriors, now clad in spiffy spectral armor and riding demonic horses. However, the Phantasm's true potential is limited by her Grand Empire skill, as well as her overall mana capacity being far too small to sustain summoning all of them.
- Bling of War
- Boobs of Steel: Perhaps the most well endowed member of the cast, and is certainly no stranger to getting rough and tumble with her enemies.
- Born in the Saddle: Genghis Khan. One of two notable examples on this page.
- Combat Pragmatist
- Four-Star Badass
- Gender Flip
- Kill It with Fire: Her whip is on fire, and her archers fire flaming arrows. It's safe to say this is a favorite tactic of hers.
- Praetorian Guard: The Keshig.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: Is very proud of her Mongol armies, and for good reason.
- Really Gets Around: It's Genghis Khan, does this really need saying?
- Shout-Out: A not so subtle one in the form of "The Wrath of Khan".
- The Strategist
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Some people fight with a sword. Khan fights with an army.
- Whip It Good: Her whip is not just made of gold, it's also barbed, and on fire.
- Zerg Rush: Her Noble Phantasm's primary purpose, to overwhelm the enemy from multiple directions with sheer numbers.
- "Ha! Whatever you say, 'Master'."
The fabled demon king of the Indian epic poem, the Ramayana. He can best be described as the most unpleasant kind of likable person. He's an arrogant lecher who doesn't think very highly of humans, and responds to most requests with either sarcasm or casual insubordinance. However, on the flip side, he's very devoted religiously, being genuinely pious, and was a legitimately good king to his people, wise and fair. His personality is definitely flawed, but he remains amiable enough to like, despite his arrogance.
Ravana remains one of the oldest, and therefore most powerful Servants in the War. His primary offensive Noble Phantasm is his mount, the Vimana, a flying aircraft filled to the brim with ancient weaponry like magic machine guns and missiles. He himself is also a great threat, possessing excellently balanced stats and a support Noble Phantasm which renders him almost immortal.
- Achilles' Heel: High temperature weapons. Applied directly to his stomach.
- All Men Are Perverts
- Deader Than Dead: How you must kill him.
- Handsome Lech
- I Call It "Vera": His Vimana is called "Pushpaka".
- It Amused Me: His entire reason for serving Charlie, who he would otherwise have regarded as an ant.
- Lost Technology: The Vimana, which is basically an ancient fighter jet/spaceship.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: You have to kill him eleven times (ten to burn through his NP and one to finish him) in order to really finish him.
- Our Demons Are Different: The Asura of Indian mythology are not necessarily demons in the commonly thought of way, meaning this trope is in full effect here.
- Sarcastic Devotee: To Charlie.
Summoned by Micheal Oliver Jones and one of the greatest rulers of the Sassanid Empire, A bit different from the norm; Shapur is a very combat oriented Rider who isn't afraid of fighting dismounted and is more than capable of holding his own against even Saber-class servants due to his high endurance, heavy armor and good strength. His slow speed and relative lack of ranged weaponry round out his downsides, but his mount completely makes those weaknesses a moot point.
Generally, Shapur is an extremely loyal and trustworthy servant who is very easy to get along with due to him acting the role of servant to the fullest, which is to say that he will obey almost any order without question no matter how foul or evil and will unswervingly face great pain and suffering if it means the advancement of his master's goals. But he does have standards however, namely no children will ever come to harm whenever they're in his presence and will never side or associate with anyone who abuses or harms them. In battle and dealing with foes however, This eastern monarch is a mighty, unrelenting titan that shows absolutely no mercy to whomever stands in the way of his master's goals and will do whatever it takes to achieve victory, even going as far as to threaten an enemy master's loved ones or sacrifice his own well-being in order to gain an advantage.
- Berserk Button: Does NOT take kindly to Romans or Knights...
- Blade on a Stick / Bifurcated Weapon: His kontos lance, Which can separate into a maul (Butt-end) and a longspear (Obviously the head).
- Born in the Saddle: The Sassanids are the descendants of the Parthians, connect the dots.
- Cool Horse: One the size of an SUV, clad in armor that can shrug off RPG rockets and can easily outrun a Bugatti Veyron!
- Combat Pragmatist: Mentioned above, but has yet to show his credentials in this trope in the RP.
- De Terminator: He eviscerated and burned his own leg in order to force Genghis Khan off her horse. It didn't work but it did show how much Shapur would sacrifice for victory.
- Friend to All Children: Has yet to prove this too.
- Modest Royalty: He was one of the greatest and most beloved rulers of his time and people. And yet he acts more like a humble foot-soldier than a proud nobleman.
- Lawful Neutral: To Shapur, Good and Evil are just words and the thing that matter the most in war and peace are results.
- Punch-Clock Villain: He doesn't approve of Mike's methods and "hobbies", but he does not call him out for it nor does he find it amusing.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: Due to taking his civilian disguise from Mike's Wardrobe, He looks a lot like a mob enforcer.
- Tin Tyrant: Subverted in that he doesn't act the part, but then double subverted when you read his biography and find out what he did to Emperor Valerian and his army during his previous life...
- Tranquil Fury: As befitting a king, he does not explode in murderous fury when angered; instead he just focuses all his attention on what he wants dead ala a Terminator.
- Undying Loyalty: Says a lot of Shapur when he consistently stays loyal to a psychopath like Mike.
The 26th President of the United States and the youngest Servant in the war, Roosevelt is the Servant of Noah, to his immediate concern. Loud and bombastic, Roosevelt ambitiously wishes for a revival of heroism, that anyone from any time could become a Heroic Spirit. He is also one of the more mundane Spirits, having no legendary weapon or mount, despite being a Rider.
- For tropes, see his own page. He's far too badass to fit on one page.
Yi Sun Shin
Jack The Ripper
- "Hello. What can I do for you today?"
The infamous serial killer who once stalked the streets of Whitechapel. Jack can assume any of the forms his legend has taken, giving him a diverse skillset, and a near perfect disguise. He is also capable of advanced magic surgery, and can deliver crippling blows to Servants with common kitchen utensils and hunting knives.
Jack does have a few quirks as a Servant, however. His disguise ability is actually the result of him being less a person and more of a spiritual entity, a creature beyond humanity forged of the souls of the victims the Ripper murders were pinned on. This is why he can take all of their forms, as he is literally one made of many. However, his personality still remains that of the killer Jack the Ripper, making him a human mind in charge of a very non-human body. In addition, due to Jack's crippling insanity and monstrous nature in life, being summoned as Berserker has actually had the opposite effect than intended, turning him into a calm and rational killer. Whether this is a change for the better or worse is... debatable.
- Ax-Crazy: The most famous serial killer of all time, folks.
- Bloodier and Gorier: His summoning scene. Actually, scratch that. Everything about him.
- During one scene, he slices a woman's throat open from the inside with a scissor blade inserted in the carotid, then cuts open her stomach and starts pulling out her internal organs. She's still alive during all this, mind you. Then we pan out and it's revealed he did this to an entire daycare center's staff.
- Body Horror: How he transforms himself. Namely, by bleeding out of every orifice while his skin cracks open and he bursts out of his own stomach like a chestburster.
- Cultured Badass: What he's become thanks to the reversed effects of the Mad Enhancement.
- Collective Identity: In a very creepy way.
- Dissonant Serenity: He's always charming, even when killing you violently.
- Gender Bender: Not all of "his" forms are male...
- Humanoid Abomination: While it's clearly the "soul" of Jack in charge, he is simply one of many that comprise the body of the actual Servant.
- Ironic Nursery Rhyme: While not a nursery rhyme, "What A Wonderful World" gets put to some... interesting use in one scene.
- Knife Nut
- Master of Disguise
- Serial Killer: Duh.
- "I only wish to have a proper heir, one who I can be proud of and call my son... a young man strong enough to lead his country like his father, not some little frail girl!"
Uther Pendragon, the Half-Dead King and The Dragon's Comet; a chivalrous king rivaled only by his daughter, Arturia Pendragon. His sense of values is that of a matured man who has a clear and righteous sense of justice. He's someone who would bring in all that upholds virtue and goodness, and will ascertain those that bring atrocity. He is the image of a hero one can feel good about, and respect. A true king.
Or, he would have, had he had been summoned as a Saber. The once proud king of Britain fell into madness as his kingdom started to fall into ruin. He despised the fact that no matter what he could do, his heir was to be a little girl. He continued to fight for his kingdom, refusing to let it fall into his daughter's hands.
Abandoning Caliburn, he found and took up Dainsleif. In his inevitable downfall, which may have been caused by his new unholy sword, he saw his whole kingdom get destroyed by invaders. With his dying breath, Uther cursed the world and fell into a fit of rage at how could fate allow such a thing to occur before his very eyes. What's left of the once Proud-High Knight-King, is nothing more than a tyrant who wishes to obtain the grail to make right what has been wronged; a new, and proper heir.
- Anti-Villain: Type III
- Badass Boast: He does this when talking about his abilities.
- Comet of Doom: He can make himself look this thanks to his Personal Skill.
- The Corrupter: Dainsleif.
- FaceHeel Turn: After finding out his heir was to be a girl.
- Lawful Evil: Type I
- Noble Demon: He may be corrupt and somewhat evil, but he does abide by the rules set by the Holy Grail, and will not want to kill innocents... sorta.
- Man on Fire: He's not really on fire, nor does it hurt, but one of his Personal Skills allows him to have a cosmetic effect of looking like he's a burning dragon.
- "The play's the thing, my dear."
The famous English playwright. I'm sure I needn't say more, because you probably already know him.
As a Servant, Shakespeare is not the type suited for close combat (this is evidenced by how he died). He prefers to use trickery to assume different identities and roles, and defeat his opponents by engineering the perfect story, one with his Master as the protagonist. He can enchant objects, increasing their effectiveness and adding new abilities, and his Noble Phantasms, The Globe and the First Folio, allow him to disguise himself and warp reality to a limited extent, respectively.
- Curbstomp Battle: To call what Enkidu did to him a fight would be grossly understating the situation.
- Master of Disguise
- Reality Warping
- Sacrificial Lamb
- The Storyteller
- Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Averted. He speaks normally.
- "Yes, this form suits you much better, I think."
The grand witch of antiquity described in Greek mythology, Circe is feared by all who know of her. Daughter of the sun god Helios, she made a name for herself in life as the most powerful of eartly witches, as well as the aunt and mentor of the equally famous Medea. Her name is almost synonymous with peril, as courting her is akin to courting death (just ask Odysseus). She toys with people for her own amusement, and generally treats the safety of their lives as an afterthought (although chances are you do not want her to actually spend time considering the merits of killing you).
Circe practices the same powerful and lightning fast magecraft as her niece, and she can further amplify her abilities with her staff, her Noble Phantasm as well as the complete form of the dagger Rule Breaker. Using this combination, Circe can use magecraft which defies the laws of nature, bringing her spellcasting ability, which already skirted the line into True Magic as a practitioner from the Age of Gods, into truly miraculous territory, allowing her to perform feats which overwhelm the magic of normal mages.
- The All-Solving Hammer: Turning people into pigs. So much so she has a dedicated spell for it.
- Anti-Magic: Her staff, Rule Breaker ~ complete, which washes away magic... with even more potent magic.
- Baleful Polymorph: Her first reaction to a given problem seems to be "can I turn it into a pig".
- Beam Spam: It seems it runs in the family. What's worse, she's even more over-the-top about it than Medea.
- Dark Action Girl
- Fiery Redhead
- Gag Boobs
- Hot-Blooded: A rare Squishy Wizard example.
- Irony: The womanizing lecher who uses women for his own amusement is paired with someone who looks at men exactly the same way.
- Kick The Son of a Bitch: Her treatment of Jon would be downright sociopathic if he wasn't such a dick.
- Large Ham: Tends to speak with extreme! Amounts! Of EMPHASIS!!!
- Lovable Sex Maniac: "Lovable" depends on your point of view, but her eagerness to do the deed is unquestionable.
- No-Sell: Her Argos spell, which creates a thin eggshell barrier around her as tough as Berserker's skin. Coupled with her Talos spell, which summons a large pair of bronze arms to defend her, she can tank pretty much anything short of an Anti-Fortress Noble Phantasm with no visible exertion.
- Parental Incest: Was apparently killed by her own son... for coming on to him. And not in a teasing sort of way.
- Villain Teleportation
Hassan i Sabbah of the Hundred Faces
- "Why do you all want to kill me? What did I ever do to you, huh?"
Summoned by Evander Barthomeloi, and the same Servant who appeared in Fate/Zero, this Assassin's fracturing of his own psyche in life allowed him to master a multitude of disguises and skills. Each of his personalities is able to manifest separately as an individual Servant, but the result is that they're all incredibly weak by Servant standards, almost to the point of being normal humans. Assassin's one saving grace is an A+ rank in Presence Concealment, and Evander puts him to good use as a massive network of spies throughout the city. Unfortunately, the universe's idea of rewarding these efforts seems to be killing his bodies off in various unusual ways...
Isn't it sad, Assassin?
- Assassin Outclassin': The outcome of... basically every attempt he makes to assassinate anyone.
- C-List Fodder
- Conservation of Ninjutsu: In full effect.
- Crippling Overspecialization: Even though they'd be a Renaissance Man if they were ever reconstituted into one body like they want.
- Cruel and Unusual Death
- Death is Cheap: Remaining Assassin count: 74/80
- Everyone Calls Him Assassin: Usually played straight until after they die.
- Lawful Evil: Apparently his overall alignment, although individual personalities seem to be all across the board.
- Literal Split Personality
- Photographic Memory
- Surveillance as the Plot Demands
- They Killed Khalid!
- Weak, But Skilled
