    Thank you very much.

    Damn, Mordred's pretty much a Berserker.
    Ahh, Saber. #bestNasuverseFather
    Oh, does Kairi have a compatible situation with Mordred?
    Ahahaha, the tribulations of Servant tourists.
    What a darling mother, ensuring her daughter gets three square meals a day and some hamburger.
    Jackie the Stripper makes her entrance!
    Wow, Jackie blew her identity quickly.
    There's Chiron!
    So Mordred's Prana Burst is only usable when she has the helm off?
    Heh, an annoying honor student.
    Damn, Chiron's arrows punch clean through her armor? Not bad.
    Damn, Chiron's a boss. Pankration too good.
    Doc Ock time.
    Muscle-headed daruma? You need work on your insults Caules, but I like you more and more.


    If Saber akenly predicted her next move, it would instantly lead to her own death.
    Mistakenly. (Chapter 2-3)

    Thanks for catching that. And I can't believe I made a mistake with "mistakenly". ;P

    An impeccable translation. Many thanks, Edreamer.

    That was truly a glorious update. I did not realize how much I had missed Mordred until I read it.
    Also, "badass" doesn't even begin to describe Shishigou.

    I gotta admit to really liking this Saber. Like, she says the sort of stuff that Deermud or her daddy ought to but are just too proud to say.

    Who should I attack? Please say the punk that just tried to shoot me in the back.

    Couldn't have said it better. Reminds me of Kiritsugu, but with additive crazyness and fun. And better Servant. Well, all the more the better!

    Also, I have no idea how old Fiore is, but she's one damn hell of a cold killer...

    Considering she willingly refuses to cure her legs just to keep her full potential as magus, I'm expecting her to be a very cold person. 100% magus.
    Well, hopefully I'll prove to be wrong.

    I think you're looking at it the wrong way.

    She has lived her entire life with magecraft as a substitute for her legs. She doesn't know what having legs is actually like, so giving up one's Magic Circuits permanently is probably an extremely scary prospect. Her wish to have both her legs and her circuits can easily be seen as "It sounds so amazing, but I can't in good faith give up my entire lifesake for it", which is pretty reasonable to me.

    Caules is 18 and he's the younger brother, soooooo, 20, maybe?

    She literally goes "I can't in good faith take lives for anything other than a cause that might get me my legs back" before she starts the battle. I personally fail to see the "coldness", but I guess it's up to interpretation.

    That's a good point. For one who never had legs, having those cured might just be something more like a "dream" than a "necessity", while it is the opposite for magic circuit and magecraft for her (as opposed to "normal" humans).

    But she still feels quite a lot of pain and has to take medicine periodically. So she values magecraft over not only her legs, but also over being released from a constant pain she has to deal with as long as her legs aren't cured. Which is very magus and somehow cold. It is human to try to escape from the pain if you can after all.

    Still, you did nuance my view of her.

    In any case, the future content will tell us what she's truly made of.

    I dunno, people do soul-crushing menial work for careers and don't try to escape it. Even better: athletes in games like hockey or rugby or American football injure themselves all the time and keep competing even through plenty of pain, and I don't exactly consider them cold for wanting to compete.

    I never thought I would like a Saber clone as much as I like Mordred. She and Kairi are going to be my favorite Servant-Master pair in the entire franchise at this rate.

    But I've always wanted to see how Mordred and (FSN) Shirou would play off of each other, given how much respect he has for Ms. Daddy and how he's so used to someone with that face being so regal and composed. It would be awkward and painful in the best way for both of them.

    This isn't really any different from Tohsaka who gets periodic attacks and needs to take medicine or Alice who you could say has it even worse.

    Wait, Tohsaka is sick? With what? And yeah, Alice does have it worse, what with being a cyber ghost due to a deadly combination of terminal disease and parental abuse.

    From what I've seen, this actually ties in pretty well with the Black Faction's theme of "healing": Chiron being summoned, the Sieg scene, Jackie's less than perfect surgical procedures, etc.

    Yes that was my bad. Going through some Mahoyo scenes yesterday made me completely forget about Extra Alice.
