    Servant Striker:

    Identity: Spirit of the Olympics

    Alignment: Neutral Good

    Alternate Classes: Lancer, Archer, Rider

    Strength- D (B)
    Agility- D (B)
    Endurance- C+ (A+)
    Mana- C
    Luck- B
    NP- 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!"


    Class Skills:

    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.


    Personal Skills:

    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.


    Noble Phantasm:


    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
    One of the most famous runners of Antiquity, whose lifetime record of twelve individual Olympic wreaths was unmatched in the ancient world. A tall man with bronzed skin, clad in light Greek armor. Carries a shortsword and bronze shield to use in close combat. The 'jack of all trades' of Striker's athletes. With high agility, strength and endurance, Leonidas was considered to have made all previous theories of runners' training and body parts obsolete.

    Melankomas of Caria
    An Olympian boxer famous for his peculiar and fascinating style of fighting. Melankomas would attain victory over his opponents without ever delivering a single blow nor being hit himself, simply dodging fluidly back and forth until his foes had exhausted themselves into defeat.

    Amongst the Olympians Striker can call upon, his defensive potential is unmatched. A the same time as implacable as an iron wall and untouchable as flowing water, he is someone who any opponent would have difficulty getting past. It is possible that he hides an overwhelming power behind his pacifist nature, such that he never used in life for fear of not just killing his foes, but destroying them utterly.

    Kyniska of Sparta
    Princess of Sparta and the first women to win at the ancient Olympic Games. Though at the time women are forbidden to even set foot in the Games, Kyniska circumvented this rule by entering into the chariot races, where the victory wreath was awarded to the chariot's owner, rather then the driver. Though Kyniska's chariot rode to victory, she herself was not allowed on stage to claim her award.

    A fierce, red-headed warrior princess riding atop an ornate regal chariot pulled by four swift-footed white horses. Though mundane steeds, they are nontheless sleek and powerful creatures easily the equal of any mortal warrior, able to gallop across the land at great speeds and execute an unstoppable trampling attack.

    Polydamas of Thessaly
    A pankrationist and one of the most famous Olympian athletes of old. His size was said to be immense and numerous stories attest to his monstrous strength, such as killing a lion barehandedly or stopping a chariot a full gallop. His skill at wrestling, combined with his inhuman, almost irrational strength, make him a truly terrifying opponent to face. Personality wise however, he is an archetypal 'gentle giant' who cares for his friends and loves small animals.

    There are also the legendary Olympians whom Striker may call upon.

    Heracles
    The Heracles. Mythical founder of the Olympics and all-round monster slaying badass. Summoned outside of the Berserker Class, Heracles is for once allowed to show his true personality unburdened by Mad Enhancement. A compassionate, boisterous man with a deep grudge against the gods and desire to atone for the mistakes of his mortal life.

    Since he is only summoned by Striker rather then through the Grail, Heracles is unable to tap into most of his abilities and Noble Phantasms. The only things he keeps are his gigantic bow with arrows dipped in hydra venom and his innate technique- Nine Lives: Shooting Hundred Heads.

    Nero
    Infamous emperor, er, empress of Rome. Participated in the Olympics and while she was knocked off her horse, it was considered that she would have won had she remained on it. Upon that somewhat tenuous logic Nero was awarded 'victor' of the Olympic Games. Summoned by Striker, she makes use of her sword Aestus Estus. Her golden theatre is unusable in this form due to Striker being unable to supply the Mana to sustain it.

    Pelops
    The other mythical founder of the Olympics. Yes, it's complicated. Seeking to marry Hippodamia, Pelops entered into a life-or-death chariot race with her father, king Oenomaus. He managed to win by appealing to the sea god Poseidon, whom bestowed him with a great chariot pulled by four untamed pegasi (winged horses).

    His left shoulder is made from silver due to an incident where his father Tantalus cut him apart to feed to the Olympian Gods at a banquet. The gods sensed the madness unfolding and managed to put Pelops' body back together, except for a shoulder that had been unfortunately chowed on by the oblivious goddess of harvest, Demeter. Thankfully, a replacement shoulder was crafted by the god of smithing- Daedalus. This has no consequence except for giving Pelops a particularly mean shoulder tackle.

    Pelops is a high-tier Servant with his pegasi-pulled chariot equal to a Noble Phantasm. Each one of the horses pulling it are high-level Divine Beasts, gifted by Poseidon himself.

    I agree. I'm currently working on one based around mass immobilization through, intense phantom pain.
    It's an Assassin's NP, and basically allows her to tear out the throats of multiple victims at her leisure while they're all writhing on the ground.

    Unfortunately for its user, it has an obvious weakness in that people with unusually high pain tolerance, like many(all?) Heroic Spirits, or even Sakura.

    Yes, it's a lousy NP, but it's for an Assassin class Servant. I can't really give her anything that would be a huge power boost. Especially since she's proven herself to be unusually capable in combat situations already.

    The Spirit of the Olympics is pretty silly (in a good way), but so have some of mine. The sheet is good and all but there are two things I'd change personally. I'd make phelps one of the Olympians summonable as he's the most decorated of them all now - in well aware he's still alive but that's hardly a problem given the sheets nature. I'd also give Nero her Reality Marble but in the form a Roman chariot rink. The prowess of an athlete is good to make her usable and works well given her nature.

    Also personally I would recommend having your master post as a blog instead.

    Regarding Phelps, she's specifically intended to be the spirit of the ancient Greek Olympics in particular. Including modern Olympians would overcomplicate things, I feel. Not to say Phelps couldn't be a Heroic Spirit on his own though, in fact it was a toss-up whether to do him (with the medals he won as NPs ala Proto!Herc's God Hand) or the Spirit of the Olympics.

    Servant Assassin Herostratus



    (Picture Link: https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/hero...n-63275943.jpg)

    Profile (From Wiki)

    He is a 4th-century BC Greek arsonist, who sought notoriety by destroying one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. His acts then prompted the creation of a law forbidding anyone to mention his name. Nevertheless, his name has become a metonym for someone who commits a criminal act in order to become noted.

    This servant's true identity is not the actual person but the concept "herostratus:, representing fame sought by criminal or otherwise disreputable mean.

    Unlike most servants, He possess his master, becoming a psuedo servant. When the first body is killed, this servant possess the nearest criminal he can find.


    this servant initially is completely useless in battle compared to other servants, including from his own class. He has no combat skills and can be killed by masters if opportunity arises. He prefers to burn down buildings or anything he can grab his hands on.


    In the war he is summoned in, he is Shirou's tormentor by setting fire on everything to gauge a reaction from the third rate magus. This servant realize he can gain more fame by playing "supervillain" to Shirou's "superhero".

    Every time assassin is killed, he comes back and continue to taunts Shirou . This results in an endless loop until the magus is dead.

    "I just want to see the world burn."

    "I can make us famous!"


    Stats


    Strength:E
    Mana: E
    Endurance:E
    Luck: E
    Agility:E
    N. Phantasm: EX


    Class Skills

    Presence Concealment E

    This servant remains undetected by the authorities and other servants while preparing to set a building on fire.


    Personal Skill

    Fire powers EX

    This servant shoot fire from his hands. This skill is not something he attain from his previous life. This servant have no interest to control his powers and prefers going wild to create more destruction as he possibly can.

    The Rank Ex allows him to destroy caster's workshop and important buildings such as Temple of Artemis.


    Herostratus EX

    This personal skill is named after his actual name. This servant becomes more crafty with arson as more people become aware of his name and notoriety, resulting in bigger and more bombastic crimes next.


    Noble Phantasm

    Damnatio memoriae EX

    Note that the name of his NP is ironic. It's passive and doesn't require calling out its name to activate it.

    This Noble Phantasm can only be activated after this servant reveals his name willingly to a master/servant. As long as the targeted individual is alive, this servant cannot be killed and will not be returning to the container after death.

    Instead, this servant possess the nearest criminal he can find like a parasite until the body can't hold him. Another reason is due to the use of his powers resulting in his host's body suffering burn damage in the process.

    I get that this is sort of intended to be a joke (that FC and the references to taunting Shirou) but still, all those EXs are pretty overboard. Herostratus can justifiably be EX maybe, but Fire Powers should be more like A+ at most. Also renamed something like Arsonist or Magecraft (Flames), since the current name is rather cheesy and informal.

    Damnatio Memoriae is an interesting idea but... is there any particular reason one's name being forgotten equals being able to jump into other bodies? There doesn't seem to be much of an attempt to ground the effect in lore, here. Also, wow, he literally can't die so long as somebody knows his name? That's... pretty powerful. Not quite sure how Shirou'd go about defeating that... (Maybe finding a helpful Magus with memory-erasing specialty...?)

    While it seems like a bit of parody, the idea of someone trying to play the 'villain' to Shirou's 'superhero' is actually really fascinating and goes quite well with Nasu's themes on heroism. ("A hero of justice requires an evil to defeat," and all that)

    Thanks for the reply.

    OK I'll admit his fire powers ranking is high but here's the reason why: EX rank means it can't be measured and he did burn down the temple of Artemis a holy place for greeks at the time. Not sure how to measure this so I put EX.

    The name is silly because I got no idea what to name it XD

    As for his NP, he can remain alive as long as ONLY Shirou remembers his name. He is anchored on this world by Shirou's memory. It only works on one person (should have mentioned anti-unit) and he gets boost when other people remember his name. If Shirou dies he dies too. I got this idea from the Joker: his true fear is to be forgotten in the arkham game.

    the name is supposed to be ironic.

    To me, it's a fair trade his NP is unique not so much about being powerful. He has zero combat skills and can be killed by masters if requirements are met but he has a NP so bizarre it defies logic.

    Besides, I did mention it's not the arsonist himself summoned but "herostratus" the metotynm for someone committing crimes for fame. like The Joker, he's a force of nature villain. He represents a part of us craving for fame by doing something stupid.

    I choose fire because Shirou's past involves fire. VN mentioned briefly he was scared of fire as a kid. Imagine a relapse when his tormentor keep burning stuff to get his attention on almost a daily basis.

    If he appears in story, he loses interest to win the war and fight other servants after telling Shirou his name. His only goal for the rest of the conflict is to torment the guy with random arson crimes so they can play superhero and supervillain to become famous.

    Why Shirou of all people? What fame and notoriety is there to gain as the archenemy of a nobody as far as mundane or magical society is concerned? Surely a Grail War will be chock full of famous people more suitable to be a Batman to your Joker.

    Because he is the protagonist and a superhero in the making? Even famous people have to start somewhere, a nobody VS a name most people have forgotten in an endless loop of "I cause trouble, he shows up, we have some laughs and the game starts all over again."

    Class:
    Caster
    True Name: "The Little Mermaid"
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Place of Origin: N/A
    Attribute: Sky
    Traits: Humanoid, Beast
    Armament:
    Teeth, Claws, Scales

    STR: D

    LCK: E
    NP: C

    Height/Weight: Variable
    Likes: Good Romance Movies
    Dislikes: Tales of Tragedy
    Talent: Suffering in silence for the sake of others happiness
    Natural Enemy: Hans Christian Andersen

    Class Skills:

    • Territory Creation (B+) - Creation of a "Workshop" becomes possible. If created above land, it will become submerged in water within 48 hours.
    • Item Construction (C+) - Caster is capable of creating powerful Mystic Codes of all kinds equal those created with modern Magecraft. Instead of creating them manually, they will materialise by themselves within the treasure trove of her workshop.


    Personal Skills:
    • Alluring Nightingale (C) - A mesmerizing-kind of Skill possessed by those with a beautiful and an alluring voice that charms people; it is also a declaration of exercise of power by the royalty. She can guide magical damage to the opponents of the royalty with just a single singing voice.
    • Aquatic Body (A) - A skill regarding the unique physiology of merfolk. Grants the ability to breathe underwater as well as air alongside resisting nautical pressure. Whilst underwater, Endurance and Agility is boosted to the equal rank of the skill.
    • Monstrous Strength (C-) - An ability possessed by monsters and beasts, temporary boost of the Strength parameter by one rank for a time limit determined by the ranking of this skill. However, in the situation that this skill is activated, every 1 turn that passes damage is taken.


    Noble Phantasm
    Jeg er Menneske Knives Locked in Feet (Anti-Unit) (C) - The first gift given to the young maiden by the sea witch and the only one she used. A dull bottle containing a purple liquid in small quantity, enough for a few mouthfuls. This Noble Phantasm only has enough liquid for two uses. The potion allows Caster to change form from that of the merfolk to human at the cost of melting her tongue. As a human all her parameters are reduced to that of a normal human and her skills are sealed making her impossible to detect as a servant and effectively making her a true human. Ingesting this potion causes immense pain akin to having a sword pass through her body and every step taken with her legs feels as if she is stepping on knives. After using this Noble Phantasm and becoming a human, any part of her body that touches water will be turned to foam. If fully turned to foam she will die.

    Kærlighed Pause Return to Foam, My Soulless Body (Anti-Unit) (C) - The second gift given to the young maiden by the sea witch and the one she refused to use. An ornate ceremonial dagger, those who use the dagger will have Jeg er Menneske nullified.
    When Caster threw this dagger away, the ocean began to 'Bleed' and evoke weakness and decay. As such anything struck with this can be 'wounded' whether it be alive or an inanimate object. It could be considered that Jeg er Menneske acts somewhat similar to the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, however the dagger cannot actually kill someone as it failed to perform even that one task.


    Lore

    A mermaid once lived at the bottom of an underwater kingdom with her five older sisters and her father, The Sea-King. On their 15th birthday the aquatic princesses are allowed to visit the surface. When it comes to the turn of the youngest of the family, the little mermaid rises to the surface and witnesses the birthday celebration on a boat of a handsome prince and falls in love with him at first sight.

    When a storm passes by and knocks the prince off into the sea, the mermaid dragged him to an island and dumped him on the shoreline and returned to the sea as mermaids cannot live on land. However immediately after she started to leave, another woman who looked almost identical to her came upon the prince. Assuming she was the one who saved his life, he fell in love with the nun which the mermaid had the misfortune of witnessing.

    When she returned to her underwater kingdom she researched into humans and found out while they live significantly shorter lives compared to the merfolk's 300 years, they have an immortal soul and ascend to heaven while mermaids merely turn to sea foam and cease to exist. If the mermaid could get the prince to marry her she could gain a soul as well.

    The mermaid went to the Sea-Witch and gave her a potion to give her legs at the cost for not being able to speak as "In the world of men, you can either be a woman or you can have a voice."

    The young maiden swims up to the prince's beachside mansion and took the potion, but every time to used her feet, it felt as if she was being stabbed causing her to collapse from the sheer intensity of the pain. She remains with the prince and they become firm friends. Only friends as he is hopelessly in love with the nun who "Saved" him. Unfortunately for the mermaid she was only pretending to be a nun and the maiden can't tell the prince the truth due to the inability to speak. If the prince were the marry this liar, the mermaid would turn to foam.

    The prince and the false nun marry and have their wedding party on a boat, inviting the mermaid. The sisters of the mermaid swim up to the beach and hand her a second gift from the Sea-Witch. If she killed the prince with it and let the blood drip on her feet, she could become a mermaid again. So she took the knife and snuck into their bedroom and stood next to the prince sleeping next to his new bride, raised the knife… and stopped. She couldn't kill someone she loved and she couldn't kill someone for petty selfish reasons like one's own happiness. She tossed the knife into the ocean which began to bleed and sat outside the cabin on the outside of the ship. As dawn breaks, her body turns to foam.

    Hans Christian Anderson however revised the ending in memory for his love of the man Edvard Collin; instead of cessation of existence she felt the warmth of the sun as a child of the air, locked in a limbo of sorts, after 300 years of doing good for mankind she could earn a soul and ascend. This fame from Anderson's tale did in fact give her a soul and made her a heroic spirit.


    Personality
    A wholesome woman who deserved the world and was dragged through the mud. She wishes for true love and romance. A name would be nice too.Ultimately a tragic figure, she is somewhat woeful and melancholic.


    Tactics
    This heroic spirit possesses little combat prowess and is poor at magecraft, a lower tier servant to say the least. It is best to lure opponents to her workshop and combining the aquatic field and Noble Phantasms, one could eliminate a disabled servant. In any other scenario, defeat is quite certain. One could also simply play the Long Game and allow one's opponents to kill each other.


    --------------------------------------------

    Been in my head for quite a while now and it was pretty hard to do honestly. I haven't done a 'Disney' servant in a while and Fairy Stories are fun to make (some more difficult than others).

    In story, the writer have to make both of them meet under the right circumstances so this toxic relationship can begin.

    I disagree, Herostratus's crime is the reason why there is a law erasing someone's name must not be remembered. How can you top that?
    The more you describe this, the more I think it's a really interesting idea. Knowing Shirou though, the moment he finds out the nature of Herostratus' NP he'd be willing to kill himself to put an end to it. Though if somebody like Rin or Saber were around they could snap him out of such a self-sacrificing 'solution'. Are you planning to write a fic for this, by any chance?

    Hermes: Little Mermaid is an interesting idea for a Servant. Her first NP sounds almost useless and her second one, highly limited, but it certainly fits her legend. Normally I might balk on the 'straight A physical stats underwater' bit for Aquatic Body but considering how weak she is normally, I can easily let it slide.

    How about this? someone is bound to notice Shirou never dies after confronting Herostratus afterwards. Heck, the servant makes sure the magus stays alive throughout the war, even becoming an unlikely ally like Lancer did in UBW.

    His role during the team up is to destroy enemy HQ. His fire powers is enough to torch down caster's workshops and important buildings with long history. Should have make it Anti-fortress, especially when the building is a temple or a holy ground.

    Archer
    General of Gunpowder


    Class: Archer
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Attribute: Man

    Parameters:
    Strength: D
    Endurance: C
    Agility: B
    Magic: C
    Luck: A+
    Noble Phantasm: C -- A

    Skills:
    Class Skills:
    • Independent Action C
      It is possible for a Servant to stay in the world for one day without a Master.
    • Magic Resistance D
      Can only protect against single-action spells. Magic Resistance of the same degree of an amulet that rejects magical energy.


    Personal Skills:
    • Espionage C
      Enemies fail to register Archer's presence as hostile unless Archer reveals incriminating information about himself. The effect will fail if either party prepares to attack.
    • Proof of Friendship D
      If the target does not have Mental Pollution, their will to fight will be curbed when conversing with Archer. This effect can be enhanced with subtle bribery. Due to Archer already having the Espionage skill, the use of this skill is relegated to restoring broken trust and calming sudden assailants.
    • Bow and Arrow Creation (Artillery) C
      As the designer of numerous gunpowder-based weapons, Archer can create said weapons if given access to the right materials. Ammunition can be created using magical energy alone; however, Archer can modify and enhance them using the gunpowder that is brought along with him when summoned.
    • Military Tactics C
      Tactical knowledge used not for one-on-one combat situations, but for battles where many are mobilized. Bonus modifiers are provided during use of one's own Anti-Army Noble Phantasm, or when dealing with an enemy's Anti-Army Noble Phantasm.


    Equipment:
    • Hwando
    • Scale Armor
    • Hwacha (rocket arrow launcher cart) with 200 arrow capacity. Starts with one copy; he can create more with Bow and Arrow Creation (Artillery)
    • Large supplies of sulfur, fine coal, and potassium nitrate; Archer can use these to create gunpowder.


    Noble Phantasm:
    Spoiler:
    Singijeon Yeonbal: Artillery Barrage Anti-Army, C (conditionally A)
    Under normal circumstances, Archer's hwacha acts as an ordinary weapon, with limited ammunition and needing regular reloading. If Archer invokes the True Name of this Noble Phantasm -- a command for a barrage to begin -- the hwacha goes into overdrive, turning the rocket launcher into a machine gun. Rocket arrows are created, loaded, ignited, and fired faster than the average human eye can perceive, shooting out in a torrential stream of explosive arrows. This quickly drains Archer's magical energy and runs the risk of a misfire (or a premature detonation), so short bursts are recommended. Additionally, Archer can leave the weapon unattended, allowing for him to fire barrages from multiple launchers for a massive rain of arrows, but the weapon's aim will quickly go awry unless it is bolted down. This Noble Phantasm is extra effective on targets in water due to Archer's legend, shredding swimming opponents and heavily damaging waterborne vehicles.


    Lore:
    Spoiler:
    Archer's true identity is Choe Museon, a Korean general and scientist who brought the secret of gunpowder to Korea to defend against the Wokou pirates. His contributions to Korea military science would later go on to cement Korea's victory in the Imjin war.

    As a child, Choe was fascinated by Chinese fireworks. He remembered this fascination of his when he became a military officer in the Goryeo dynasty of Korea, in a time where the influence of the government was waning and pirates regularly plundered the coast.

    During a visit to Yuan Dynasty China, Choe was able to bypass the tight security surrounding the secret to China's gunpowder production. He returned to Goryeo with knowledge of the three components of gunpowder; however, he could not figure out a way to create niter, the mineral form of potassium nitrate. Repeatedly running into dead ends, Choe's experiments stalled.

    It was at that time that a Chinese merchant, Li Yuan, was visiting Goryeo on business. Gaining an audience with the merchant, he was able to convince Lee to divulge the secret of niter, bribing him to defy Mongol law. With the secret to producing gunpowder obtained, Choe began work on several prototypes, and after presenting them to King U of Goryeo, he was able to open a weapons factory.

    During the Battle of Jinpo, Choe participated as a commander, supervising the deployment of gunpowder-based artillery against the Japanese. The battle was a Korean victory and Choe was promoted, becoming an influential politician.

    When the dynasty changed from Goryeo to Joseon, Choe retired from politics and the military, dying a quiet death in the countryside. Nevertheless, he was remembered fondly even in the new government, being held up as the prime example of a scientist for generations to come.


    Personality:
    Always inquisitive and filled with wonder, Archer comes across as happy and charming, but somewhat childish. He is easily distracted by things he considers as "cool" and will not rest until he understands how they work (preferably being able to duplicate it himself). Those who do not know his legend may mistake him for a happy-go-lucky idiot.

    Archer's hidden talent is that he knows how to manipulate people into telling him what he wants. His innocent persona makes it easy for people to trust him, even when they really shouldn't (hence his Espionage skill). He intentionally makes it appear like he is a friend to everybody, while being able to hide his agenda. His usual approach in the early stages of a Grail War would be to ingratiate himself with the other contestants, performing favors and winning trust, and perhaps even forging alliances.

    His wish for the Holy Grail War would be for the unification of Korea. However, in the event that reconciliation is impossible, he will always side with South Korea and if given the chance, will aid in a military takeover.

    Miscellaneous:
    Likes: cool and flashy things.
    Dislikes: pirates, people who prey on the weak in general
    Talents: gaining trust, analyzing and reproducing technology, being a bro.
    Natural Enemy: Oda Nobunaga
    Catalyst: a Hwacha
    Notes: he will be an instant fan of of any other Korean Heroic Spirits summoned, even if they lived after his time.

    Servant Caster:

    True Name
    : Elvis Presley 'King of Rock & Roll'

    Alignment: Chaotic Good

    Strength- E
    Agility- B
    Endurance- E
    Mana- B
    Luck- C-
    NP- B

    Appearance:

    (Hail to the king, baby)

    Personality
    : Beyond his glitzy and swashbuckling persona lies a deeply caring and generous young man. Caster is a great soul who, despite his great fame, never lost sight of his common upbringing or the people who had made his success possible. Though playing the part of a flirt, he would never actually do anything untoward to a woman if given the chance. In the Grail War, Caster plays up his rockstar persona, treating the War itself as a grand 'stage' for him to perform upon.

    Caster is aware of his persona as a natural born rock idol and the pressure to live up to that image even when it conflicted with his own nature ultimately destroyed him. In the end though, Caster does not regret how his life went. He became an icon that revolutionized music and gave joy to countless people, so wishing to undo all that simply because it led to a tragic end would be only selfish. More then anything, Caster is someone satisfied with his life, regardless of its ending. That said, Caster is thoroughly tired of fame and fortune. His wish on the Grail is simply to be able to retire somewhere and have the normal, tranquil life that was denied to him as an idol.

    Caster is greatly fond of rich foods and especially bacon. He shows a nearly bottomless appetite and is the sort of person who might sit down for a small breakfast only to end up gobbling an entire banquet. Though its become part of his legend, Caster greatly dislikes being referred to as a 'King', saying "There's only one king, baby, and it's God". Also, for some reason, he has a strong, inexplicable hatred for television sets and will go out of his way to destroy any of them that he encounters.

    Likes: pretty girls, rich and heavy food
    Dislikes: being called 'King', television sets
    Talents: Rock & Roll, sex appeal
    Natural Enemy: "Colonel" Tom Parker


    Class Skills:

    Territory Creation (A-)- Allows for formulation of a 'Graceland Mansion' inferior to a Temple. This Mansion possesses no special abilities other then being incredibly huge, gaudy and luxurious. Really, keeping such a thing concealed during the Grail War is more of a hindrance then anything.

    Item Construction (C+)- Caster can craft 'records' which his lyrical spells can be infused into. Playing these records instantly deploys the relevant spell just the same as if Caster had performed it himself.


    Personal Skills:

    Seductive Presence (B+)- Talent to seduce and mesmerize others. Higher the rank, the more one's status as a 'sex symbol' increases. Caster can seduce others effortlessly through his voice, body and gestures (dancing). At this point it is no longer just attraction but a kind of natural spell, placing those affected under an aphrodisiac trance. Using this Skill, Caster could easily create an army of love-crazed minions willing to obey everything he says and even die for him. Great willpower, a Mana ranking of C or higher or Skills granting immunity to mental interference are needed to resist Caster's charms. However, this Skill is only truly effective against women, with those of the same gender merely experiencing a mild fascination.

    Innocent Monster (C)- Nature of one whose legend has been distorted falsely by history. In this case, urban legends associating Caster with the devil and Occultism have led him to possessing supernatural prowess that he never had in life.

    Charisma (E)- Ability to inspire others and command armies. Charisma is a rare talent, but in certain cases, there are factor that can affect the personality development of the owner. In the case of Elvis Presley, this resulted in a "Natural Idol" against whom no one could object.


    Noble Phantasm
    :


    Eternal Elvis- The King Never Dies (B, Support): An irregular Noble Phantasm crystallizing the legends surrounding Caster's death. While normally a star of the modern day such as Elvis would not have enough mystery for a Noble Phantasm, this case is an exception due to the unique mysteries surrounding his own demise. Countless tabloids and conspiracy theorists report that Elvis never truly died, but faked his passing in order to escape the life of a celebrity and still lives on in the modern world, free from the prying public eye. While wholly meritless, the beliefs and wishes invested into the King of Rock & Roll grant him this Noble Phantasm.

    When Caster 'dies', his body is conceptually overwritten with a double- a hollow 'shell' made from condensed Mana, while his real self is teleported elsewhere within a ten mile radius. This 'reborn' Caster is free from whatever injury originally killed him. Afterwards, Caster is also endowed with Presence Concealment at rank E, to hide from the public eye and evade detection. To outside observers, it will appear as if Caster had really died and disappeared from the Holy Grail War.

    Using this Noble Phantasm, Caster can fake his own death, use his newfound stealth for information gathering and plan surprise attacks on his unaware opponents. However it can only be used once. Should Caster be killed a second time, this Noble Phantasm will not take effect and Caster will truly pass from the world.

    Even the King of Rock & Roll ain't immortal, after all.


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Another rather silly idea for a Caster. Josuke FC isn't quite what I had in mind but it was closest thing with the pompadour and flashy clothing. Couldn't find any good art of him in a 'sexier' pose, like with a ripped shirt or something. As usual, I'd appreciate comments and criticisms. Thanks!

    "So... Are you ready for what is next?" Yona grinned, raising her sword...
    "In a hundred years, when I finally die... I only hope I go to Hell so I can kill you all over again, you piece of shit." Amaranth spat back...
