Identity: Spirit of the Olympics
Alignment: Neutral Good
Alternate Classes: Lancer, Archer, Rider
Strength- D (B)
Agility- D (B)
Endurance- C+ (A+)
Appearance: A short olive-skinned girl with a slender, yet toned build and undercurrent of muscles ripping beneath her slight, girlish frame. Has remarkable sea-green eyes and light brown hair done up into a tomboyish bob, with two long braids hanging at either side. Wears a white Chiton dress cut short for ease of movement, baring most of her long, athletic legs. Sports rather anachronistic form-fitting black tights under said chiton, with matching fingerless gloves wrapping her hands. Bronze sandals cover her feet, with straps criss-crossing over her calves. A vibrant green laurel crown adorns her head, symbolizing her authority as spirit of the Olympics.
Personality: Fitting for the embodiment of the Olympics, Striker possesses a vigorous and firey personality overflowing with competitive spirit. Likes physical competitions of all sorts and is the type to never back down from a challenge. Holds great affection to the demigod Heracles, whom she refers to as 'papa' for his role as mythological founder of the Olympics. In the same way, she views the various athletes who participated in the Olympics as her 'family'.
Though seeming like a chaste athlete, Striker also has a more lewd side to her that is easily enamored of handsome and athletic men and women of all kinds. Her usually controlled demeanour evaporates to leave her a blushing, drooling mess before such individuals. It truly can be called Heroic Spirit Striker's greatest weakness. Her wish on the Holy Grail is simply to be able to form a 'harem' of all the powerfully built legendary heroes from across history. This girl... who does she think she is, some kind of Shoujo protagonist?
Likes: Heracles, pushing her body to its limits, athletic men and women
Dislikes: laziness, inherent limits
Talent: all the skills necessary for an athlete
Natural Enemy: "An athlete's only enemy is their own self!"
Natural Weapon (A+)- Ability to utilize one's body as a weapon. When fighting unarmed, physical parameters go up by two full rankings. An athlete's greatest weapon is not anything they carry, but their body itself, the product of a lifetime of training to hone and master their craft.
Magic Resistance (C)- Cancel spells with an incantation below two verses. Cannot cope with the likes of High Thaumaturgy or Greater Rituals. Though 'born' in the Age Of Gods, Striker's peculiar nature as a Heroic Spirit insured that she never encountered any magic in life.
Prowess Of An Athlete (A++)- A unique Skill sublimating one's fitness for the various challenges presented in the Olympic Games of ancient Greece. Discus and javelin throwing, long-distance sprinting, pankration, boxing, chariot and horse riding can all be displayed at B~A+ ranked proficiency.
Eternal Arms Mastery (A+)- Arms prowess that does not degrade under the effects of mental interference. By complete merging of mind, body and technique, it becomes possible to make full use of one's fighting skills under any kind of mental hindrance. As embodiment of the Olympics, Striker inherits the resolve of all athletes who dedicated themselves utterly to their craft.
Kleos Aphthiton- Undying Glory Of The Stadium (A+, Support): The Olympic games were truly the most momentous religious occassion in Ancient Greece. Countless souls gathered from across the provinces to compete for glory and fame immemorial. Those who won would have their names etched into the fabric of legends forever as heroes or demigods, while even the defeated would gain respect for their valiant efforts.
As spirit of the Olympics, Striker bears a record of each and every athlete who participated in her games. Any one of these athletes can be summoned as Masterless Servants to fight under her command. Though many were ordinary men and women of their era, victory at the Games raised them to the level of living legends. It could be said that the Olympic Games of old were a means of transmuting ordinary humans into Heroic Spirits.
As Heroic Spirits, they boast idealized physical bodies and incredible prowess far exceeding modern man. They are not automatons or wraiths, still retaining their personalities and unique dispositions from life. Though not forced to obey Striker, there is a natural compatibility between the Heroic Spirit of the Olympics and its participants such that true conflict is unlikely to arise.
Summoning and sustaining these athletes requires a great deal of magical energy from Striker. About five or so are the limits of what she can safely keep in existence at any given time. This cost skyrockets for those Olympians that were true legendary spirits even before entering the Games, such as Heracles, Pelops or Nero. Such great heroes easily are worth the likes of ten lesser Olympians, demanding a suitable cost in magical energy. Just maintaining them for several minutes is likely to drain her nearly dry, while trying to manifest more then one at a time or alongside her regular ones is liable to kill her nigh-instantly from the magical strain.
Though Striker is able to call on dozens of Olympians to aid her, there are a select few that she favors most of all to send into battle. These are as follows.
Leonidas of Rhodes
Melankomas of Caria
Kyniska of Sparta
Polydamas of Thessaly
There are also the legendary Olympians whom Striker may call upon.
