    He does have a point, but is also wrong since legends are inherently culture- and location-driven.

    Legends are tied to certain cultures, but cultures are very seldom bound to a certain location, not even one as broad as a single continent. Example: The Celts, spread everywhere in Europe including the islands of Albion and Eire. Greek civilisation spread all across the Near East and the coasts of Europe, and when it was largely adopted by the Romans it both mutated and expanded, with new myths and legends coming to add to or replace the old.

    I see what you're arguing, but Colchis was on the far side of the Black Sea, the most accurate modern day country would be Georgia.

    With your logic, Astolfo is Italian

    And the Gorgon sisters set up shop somewhere near Sicily, and Macedonia's landlocked entirely. Why only Medea?

    Don't know where Astolfo is supposed to be from, can't comment.

    ^ Astolfo is the same as Lancelot in that they're both "born in Country X but legend involves Country Y" and so their various Fate profiles flip flop on where their Region is supposed to be.

    But in regards to this map, since the title places more emphasis on their (in-story) country of birth, Astolfo being listed in Britain makes more sense to me.

    Astolfo was born in Britain and lived from France, but he's largely from the Renaissance Italian versions of the Matter of France.

    Did Astolfo and Lancelot's profile really flip flop tho? I think I would notice it by now if they are inconsistent on the region listed.

    I was probably being hyperbolic, but I definitely remember their F/GO regions being listed differently from their debut series Zero/Apocrypha.

    Oh, yeah just checked it for Astolfo.

    They did listed his Place of Origin is England in Apoc mat. While FGO Region is France.

    Though, knowing this franchise, Place of Origin and Region may refer to different thing.
