    Lancer of the Mexica
    Faceclaim

    FC link
    Servant Class: Lancer
    Alternate Classes: Caster, Berserker
    True Name: Nezahualcoyotl
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    Origin: America (15th century)
    Armament: Spear, shield

    Parameters:
    STR: C
    END: C
    AGI: B
    MANA: C+
    LUCK: B
    NP: D

    Skills
    Class Skills:

    Magic Resistance - Rank C: Grants protection against magical effects. Differing from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether.
    Cancel spells with a chant below two verses. Cannot defend against magecraft on the level of High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals.

    Personal Skills:

    Military Tactics - Rank 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 against an enemy Anti-Army Noble Phantasm.
    As a bonus, thanks in large part to experience in commanding split armies, Lancer can split her own Anti-Army Noble Phantasms to strike at multiple targets simultaneously.

    Innocent Monster - Rank E: An attribute possessed by Servants whose true history and existence have been distorted by the monstrous reputations and gossips they accrued across the course of their life and thereafter, without concern for the actual person's will or appearance. As a consequence, the Servant's abilities and appearance have been rendered to conform to the specifications of their legend. Incidentally, this Personal Skill cannot be removed.
    Oddly for the normal effect of this Skill, the “monstrous reputation” is strictly from the point of view of her own culture. She was painted as a saintly figure, constructing a temple where the sacrifice of living beings to the gods was not allowed. It is also said that she worshipped an “unknowable Lord of everywhere”, seen by some as a direct analogue to the God of Christianity. As the rumors and records are scarce, only Lancer’s behaviour is affected.
    Further, the level of ‘Innocent Monster’ changes with her class, being at its weakest in the Lancer class.

    Natural Born Genius - Rank B: A Skill that shows one who has unparalleled natural knowledge. Allows the use of many Skills, excluding those inherent to the body (such as Divinity) or ones unique to particular heroes, at proficiency of B~C Rank.
    From an early age, Lancer exhibited a great deal of ingenuity and wisdom. After rising to power, she gathered a group of wise men, known as the tlamatini, to serve at her court. Lancer is also known to have constructed a great botanical and zoological garden for her own enjoyment. She is especially fond of using this Skill for the purposes of art and construction.

    Noble Phantasms

    Bringer of Water
    Altepetl

    Anti-Army, Rank C+
    Lancer is famed for designing and building several aqueducts, securing drinkable water for many cities. As an aqueduct is a “spear of water” traversing the land to reach people, Lancer’s Noble Phantasm takes such a form. Besides her choice of weaponry, Altepetl is also an influence on her qualification as a Lancer class servant.
    When released, Lancer’s spear unleashes a jet of water. This “spear” can travel up to four kilometres, and can travel such a distance in a relatively short amount of time. Altepetl’s stream is only several meters in diameter, however, and though its destructive power is like that of other offensive Noble Phantasms, its accurate usage over long ranges requires precise aim. Lancer can also travel with the water, allowing her to transport herself over great distances very quickly.
    Alternatively, Lancer can choose to use a less destructive version of Altepetl, in which case the stream breaks into a flood of water upon reaching its target. This can injure regular humans, but will hardly do any damage to Heroic Spirits. Indeed, this activation’s true purpose is to nourish the land around it. Thanks to the connotations with life-giving water, Lancer can also transfer mana through Altepetl’s non-offensive usage. It is even possible to tap into natural rivers, transferring the magical energy of nature to either Lancer herself or a target of her choice.
    The dual nature of this Noble Phantasm is bound to the most famous of Lancer’s aqueducts, carrying water from the springs of Chapultepec to the Aztec Empire’s capital, Tenochtitlan. Though it brought nourishing water to the city, and thus gave the city life, it also made possible the Aztec Empire’s many bloody wars, contributing to its more violent usage.

    Description
    Likes: Prosperity, nature, poetry
    Dislikes: Bloodshed, propaganda
    Talents: Working with water, governance
    Natural Enemy: Fernando de Alva Cortés Ixtlilxóchitl

    Lancer’s true identity is Nezahualcoyotl, the Master of Texcoco’s Waters.

    Nezahualcoyotl is subdued and polite, as befits a ruler of her era. Even after her death, she retains the inquisitive mind that allowed her to accomplish so many things in life. Being fully capable of applying her intellect to the art of war, Nezahualcoyotl would delight in seeing the myriad abilities and fighting styles that Servants bring with them. Though in her current form, she is averse to bloodshed, a little of her old self comes to the fore when engaging Servants. As they are already dead, she thinks, they are exempt from her newfound appreciation for human lives.
    Differing from how she was recorded in history, Nezahualcoyotl has manifested as a female. She herself is of the opinion that it may have something to do with the faulty accounts of her life by the Spanish as well as some connection to the planet Venus. Due to the effects later accounts of her have on her mind, she is unsure whether she was male or female in life. However, as he despises the attempt made by those who came after her to paint her in a light more pleasing to the Spanish, she has decided that she was female in life, as it is in direct opposition to what the accounts claim.
    Thanks to the effects of ‘Innocent Monster’, she is significantly less bloodthirsty than other rulers of her time, and holds views more in line with the norm of the modern era. Given perspective by her manifestation as a Servant, as well as the slight distortion of her psyche, she has begun to wonder how necessary the human sacrifice of her time were. She is still angry at being represented as something she was not, and holds those who would use the dead for the means of profit or gaining influence in contempt.
    Nezahualcoyotl doesn’t possess a particularly strong, singular wish, but rather a set of whims. If called to choose, she would most likely latch onto either the restoration of her empire in some form, her people’s undying prosperity or a chance to avenge herself on those who would abuse her legend for their own ends. In a way, her true wish is to find contentment in her existence as a Servant.
    Nezahualcoyotl would likely see her Master as one of her people. As a ruler, it is her duty to serve her people, and she would thus do her utmost as a Servant.

    Lore
    Nezahualcoyotl was a philosopher, warrior, architect, poet and ruler of the city-state of Texcoco. She was born as heir to the throne, but was forced to flee once her father was assassinated and her city taken over by a rival power. During her exile, she was educated in the ways of the Mexica Aztecs, despite being an outsider.
    Eventually, the Aztecs would strike at the conqueror’s of Nezahualcoyotl’s kingdom, and she herself was chosen to lead the troops. Nezahualcoyotl, being recognized for her talents, was handed command of an army of 100,000 troops. During the campaign, she swiftly split and reunited her forces, striking at several targets with a relatively small amount of troops, then gathering her forces as one to face retaliation and more stubborn resistance. Though her objective was to retake her birthright, the campaign was successful that Nezahualcoyotl also crushed the enemy’s capital, ending their threat. For her deeds, she was finally crowned as ruler of Texcoco, as was her birthright.
    As a ruler, Nezahualcoyotl was instrumental in creating what was referred to as Texcoco’s Golden Age, bringing law, scholarship and artistry to the city. The resulting city was later referred to as the “Athens of the New World” for the feats of science, art and philosophy that Texcoco’s people accomplished. Of all the creative minds of Texcoco’s Golden Age, it is said that Nezahualcoyotl’s was the brightest.
    During her life, Nezahualcoyotl realized many architectural feats, chief among them the aqueduct of Tenochtitlan and her own palace with its gardens and waterworks. She also left behind several dozen poems of her own devising, showing both artistry and philosophical depth in their contents.

    I found the faceclaim pretty much by accident (google image search, if anyone cares), searching for another faceclaim.
    As a Caster, she wouldn't have magecraft at all (since she qualifies as an artist/architect). Probably something of divine origin, given her status as tlatoani.
    Edit: Also, I prefer not to make multiple versions of the same Heroic Spirit, if I can help it.

    "Serpents of Dionysus, bear your fangs! Swallow all who dare raise their weapons in defiance of the Queen of Conquerors!"

    Rider
    Olympias


    Source

    Alignment: Neutral Evil
    STR: D+
    END: E+
    AGI: B
    MAG: B
    LUCK: B+
    NP: A+

    Class Skills

    Riding (A+): Class Skill of Rider and Saber class Servants, denoting the ability to ride mounts and vehicles. Rider-class Servants will typically possess a high rank. It is said that dragon type mounts are an exception, requiring a different ability other than Riding. All vehicles and all creatures up to the level of Phantasmal Beast and Divine Beast can be used as mounts. However, that does not apply to members of the Dragon Kind.

    Magic Resistance (C): Grants protection against magical effects. Differing from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. A sufficient rank to cancel spells with a chant below two verses. Cannot defend against magecraft on the level of High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals.

    Personal Skills

    Divinity (D+): The measure of whether one has Divine Spirit aptitude or not. At high levels, one is treated as a mixed race of a Divine Spirit, and the level declines when the Heroic Spirit's own rank as a Monster or Demonic Beast raises. It can also decrease due to one's dislike for the gods. Those who have A Rank Divinity or above has reached the Throne of Gods. It also has an effect which reduces special defensive values called 'purge defense' in proportion to the Divinity's Rank. It can break through Skills such as Protection of the Faith and Enlightenment of the Sacred Fig. A descendant of the demigod hero Achilles, the divine essence remaining in her blood is boosted by her claims that she slept with the god Zeus to father her children.

    Charisma (B): A composite Skill consisting of a person's charm as well as the natural talent to command or unify an army or country. Increases the ability of allies during group battles. A rare talent, and an ability inherent to Servants of the Saver class. Despite being a woman largely untrained in military matters, Rider has the charismatic ability to manipulate warriors as an army. A natural ability for warfare runs through her veins.

    Sadistic Constitution (B++): A Skill that augments one's aggression in battle. It appears to be a positive Skill, but the longer its owner stays in battle, the more their abusive disposition will grow, causing them to lose their usual composure. It's possible to say that this is just one step short of the Skill that causes Berserkers to go insane. The more one attacks, the stronger one becomes, but on the other hand, one's defensive abilities drop. It seems Rider inherited her ancestor’s naturally aggressive personality, and as a worshipper of Dionysus and a follower of his maenads, her savagery has only been furthered. It will not be long before she loses all composure in the heat of battle, attacking indiscriminately whilst gleefully laughing.

    Golden Rule – Body (B): A Skill that denotes the possession of a natural and perfect goddess-like body, preserving beauty. Unlike the Natural Body Skill whose body shape does not change despite how much caloric intake was taken, there is no effect on the owner's Strength parameter.

    Noble Phantasms

    Orgias Wheel
    Wheel of Heaven’s Liquor


    Lady Olympias’s war chariot; a gift from her patron god, Dionysus. A leader of a orgiastic, snake worshipping cult of the wine god, the chariot is a symbol of her authority. Constructed from vine-wood, decorated with beautiful carved leaves and fruits of olives and grapes, pulled by two great wyrms and with serpents wrapped around the wheels. The dragons pulling the chariot can fly through the air and along with their savage teeth and claws, and instead of flame or poison, they breathe a thick mist that causes intoxication and unconsciousness. The chariot also comes with an inclusive fully stocked wine bar, such convenience!

    Via Bacchanalia
    Distant Dance of Revelry


    Anti-Army, A+: The actual Noble Phantasm of Queen Olympias, a high-speed charge performed with Dionysus’s chariot. Drawing a suitable distance back from her opponent, she spurs her dragons into a full charge, urging them to their full speed. The opponent is mangled beneath the dragons’ claws, and torn apart by the fangs of the serpents adorning the wheels as they lash out wildly during the charge. The exertion of the dragons causes them to pant heavily, coating the area in their alcoholic mist, spreading chaos and confusion across the battlefield. It is said that the maenads would tear those who interrupted their secret rites to shreds, with this attack carrying the symbolic strength of the punishment visited upon those who committed that blasphemy.
    Due to the main factor of her legend being ‘the mother of Alexander the Great’, it seems her abilities as a Servant have been deliberately modelled after her son’s.

    Zeus Thunder
    God’s Embrace


    Anti-Unit, C: A Noble Phantasm that makes use of her son’s claim to be the son of Zeus. Her womb is infused with his divine lightning, allowing her to birth true demigods, great heroes who have power of his thunder. She can use this magic of this ability combined with a man’s semen to create an army of lightning-powered homunculi, not unlike the original form of a certain evil dragon. In its true form it allows her to create a modern day Hero alike in calibre to her eldest son, but she does not possess this ability as a Servant, and would need to fully incarnate to make use of it.

    Lore
    Queen Olympias of Macedon. Born Polyxena to the royal family of Epirus. The kings of Epirus were descendants of Neoptolemus, Achilles’s son, and thus the blood of gods and heroes ran through her veins. Born with a burning ambition to carve her name across the entire world, she accepted that as a woman (and unwilling to conceal her gender), society would not allow her to rule as a king, she instead elected to make use of a king’s seed and birth herself powerful and worthy sons, who would fulfil her ambition. Upon initiation into a mystery cult, she renamed herself Myrtale, and was betrothed to Prince Philip II of Macedon, who had fallen in love with her during her initiation.

    On the advent of her husband’s ascension to the throne, she changed her name again to Olympias, ostensibly to commemorate his victory in the Olympic Games, but secretly in honour of her son Alexander, conceived in a secret tryst with Zeus (or so she told him, and would later publicly claim), who would be the main vessel of her ambitions. Fuelling her young son’s desires for glory, by instructing him about the heroic tales of his ancestors, she manoeuvred him into position for the throne by poisoning his older half-brother Arrhidaeus, leaving him mentally crippled and unfit for rule.

    She later quarrelled with Phillip, and he married another woman, Eurydice. Banished into exile in Epirus with her son, her disgrace was short-lived when Philip was assassinated at the wedding of his and Olympias’s daughter, almost certainly on her vindictive ex-Queen’s orders. With Arrhidaeus unfit for the throne, most of Phillip’s other heirs suffered mysteriously untimely deaths, leaving the throne open for Alexander to claim. The rest, as they say, was history, though Alexander would try to keep his mother away from politics during his rule, aware of her cruel and savage nature.

    After Alexander’s death, Olympias made herself caretaker of his young son, also named Alexander, and his mother, Roxana. This sparked a civil war in Macedon between her supporters and those who supported Arrhidaeus’s claim for the throne. Despite early victories, after which she changed her name one last time, to Stratonice, she was ultimately defeated and captured. The enemy general ordered that she be stoned to death, but his army refused to harm the mother of their beloved Alexander. She ultimately met her fate at the hands of the families of her many victims.

    Ironically, it was her one act of mercy, leaving her idiot stepson alive due to Alexander’s fondness for him, that ultimately cost her everything she had struggled for all her life.


    Personality
    A dangerous individual. Cruel and tyrannical, she only cares about furthering the goals of herself and her allies. Though she may seem like a heartless serpent, she is capable of affection for other people, genuinely loving her son and grandson, and enjoyed a happy marriage to Phillip before their relationship decayed. Nonetheless, she is still dangerous, and is perhaps even more zealous in pursuing the interests of her loved ones than she is her own. Though ruthless, she will usually acquiesce if someone she cares for makes pleas of clemency.

    “In the end, I guess I still haven’t learned my lesson. If only he hadn’t loved that idiot boy so much…”

    Her wish is to become fully alive again, so she can hunt down a great man and harvest his seed to once again birth herself a beautiful and powerful child.

    As a worshipper of Dionysus, she has a fondness for fine alcohol, and will happily discuss the merits of various wines with anyone willing.

    Relationships with other Servants

    Alexander: “Come give mummy a big hug, my dear!”

    Iskandar: “My beautiful boy. I am so proud of you, I always will be.”

    Minamoto no Raikou: “I understand a mother’s desire to coddle her children. However, I think you might take it a bit too far.”

    Achilles: “Honoured ancestor, to be in your presence delights me more than I could ever say.”

    Neoptolemus: “Brat. I can’t believe we share the same blood.”

    Semele: “Great lady, I would consider it a great honour if you were to join us in our bacchanals today.”

    Bond CE – Bacchanalia

    “There’s religion that considers wine the blood of the god they worship. In my case, this would be the blood of Dionysus. Or perhaps that of Achilles.
    I have a fine tale for you, Master. They say that all those who share the blood of Achilles will die a violent and untimely death if they take up arms. Achilles, his son, Alexander, myself. We all died before our times in a brutal fashion. Well, Alexander didn’t. He drank himself to death. Perhaps I should have followed a god who preached moderation instead.”

    Interesting sheet. Nice to see that somebody remembers Dionysos had a connection to spectacular violence through the maenads. Though it does feel that she doesn't have much of her own going for her, given that her NPs are just extensions of Alexander's and Iskandar's. Then again, seeing as he was her greatest achievement, that's fitting.
    I also like that you made her skillset very unique despite not using any unique Skills at all.
    Not much else to comment, seeing as this is quality material.

    That's a pretty cool Olympias sheet. You took a nicely different take then mine in making her NPs mirror Iskandar's and emphasizing the "follower of Dionysus" aspect. My only critique is that I feel like you could've emphasized her relationship with Iskandar a bit more in her personality section. Seeing as she's listed as his natural enemy in Iskandar's profile and all.

    Alright. I've been lurking for a long time and finally decided to get my hands dirty with my first sheet. It's probably terrible, but I hope to improve! I am also doing this on a phone so formatting may be a little wonky.


    Rider of The Labyrinth


    Class: Rider
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Attribute: Human
    True Name: Icarus Ikaria
    Origin: Greek Mythology
    Armament: Wings




    Parameters
    Strength: E
    Endurance: D
    Agility: D
    Mana: B
    Luck: E
    Noble Phantasm: B


    Likes: Her father, Ariadne, birds
    Dislikes: King Minos, her legend, the Sun




    Class Skills
    Riding: E
    She never actually rode many creatures, Phantasmal or otherwise, during her lifetime, much of her childhood and early teen years spent locked in a tower with her father, kept away from the outside world. The only thing she can truly ride are the wings on her back. She would prefer not to.

    Magical Resistance: D
    An inherent skill of the Rider class that allows Ikaria to resist lower level spells and magecraft. Her mere presence in the Age of Gods and proximity to a being such as the Minotaur gives her a decent amount.


    Personal Skills
    Mana Burst (Sunlight): D
    Ikaria’s fate was sealed by the burning rays of the sun melting the wax that held together her wings. Now, she is able to reproduce the Sun’s unyielding wrath and use it as a weapon against her opponents, setting her wings ablaze and slinging the flames from them, though not without damaging herself in the process. Her legend is often associated with the similar tale of Phaethon, son of Helios. She would prefer not to use this skill.


    Father’s Gift: B
    The wings she was given by her father, burned and melted onto her back, letting her potentially evade attacks. However, each usage of the skill causes her wings more and more damage, especially if used in the daytime.


    Pitiful Existence: A
    A beautiful young girl that lived as the apple of her father’s eye. Most find it impossible not to pity such a sad looking girl, even more so if they know her true name, making even the most hardened warriors reluctant to fight her. Her pathetic parameters and fighting ability only add to it.






    Noble Phantasm
    A Child’s Hubris
    Icarus
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Rank: B
    Ikaria’s legend is one of the most well known in the world, the tale of her fall reaching the farthest corners of humanity, encapsulated in the collective consciousness as a prime example of childish pride and naivety.


    For the first time in her rather short life, Ikaria was truly free. Launching into the air was her first taste of freedom in years, and she was overcome with joy. Such overpowering joy washed the warning words of her father from her mind as she soared higher and higher. Even as the wax melted, even as her feathers molted, Ikaria was happier than she'd ever been before. Now she and her father could live happily. Now they could be free. And then she fell.


    This Noble Phantasm acts as a crystallization of that moment. Wiping away Ikaria’s self-control, the girl is essentially forced into the air, taking her enemy in her arms and flying vertically towards the sky. Slowly, her body will be overcome by flames and her wings will fall away. She soars with the paralyzed opponent into the sky, aware of her actions but unable to prevent her mistake. Once they reach 1000 meters, Ikaria begins to fall, screaming as her body burns and eventually crashes into the ground in a massive explosion. This Phantasm is guaranteed to kill her after its use.




    Lore
    Ikaria, also known as Icarus, was the daughter of the genius, Daedalus. From a young age, Ikaria and her father were imprisoned in a tower on Crete by the tyrant, King Minos, after her father constructed the Labyrinth to contain the Minotaur. Her mother had died when she was young, so the only family she knew was Daedalus and she was all that remained of his beloved wife.


    For years, Daedalus toiled on the Labyrinth, building it to even grander scale as the Minotaur continued to grow in size and monstrosity. While he worked, Ikaria remained in the tower, alone with only the birds perching on the windowsill for company. However, her loneliness would not last forever. Soon, the princess of Crete, Ariadne, began to visit the tower, curious about the young girl she saw staring into the sky everyday. The princess was horrified to discover why Ikaria and her father were locked away, already knowing of her monstrous half-brother, but never imagining her father’s own cruelty. From then on, the princess did her best to visit the young girl in the tower and the two became fast friends, sisters even. That changed when Theseus arrived.


    Ikaria watched sadly from their tower as Theseus sailed away with the Princess, but also a certain happiness. Perhaps with the Minotaur dead, she and her father would be let free. Sadly, Ikaria underestimated the cruel nature of the King of Crete, who blamed Daedalus for the death of the Minotaur and Theseus’ escape. Daedalus saw the writing on the wall and knew Minos’ fury would come down upon him, upon them both, soon enough, and so, he went to his last desperate option. The wings, made from hot wax and seagull feathers, Daedalus had been making them for years, a crackpot plan to escape this prison. He had no way to test them and no guarantee they would work, but it was his only choice. He strapped the wings onto himself and Ikaria and launched himself first from the tower window. Ikaria watched in amazement as her father soared into the air like a bird and eagerly followed him. The rest of the story is already known.


    Personality
    Ikaria hates her legend. She hates that the only thing she will ever be remembered for is her failure. No one remembers her love of birds, her skill at painting, her beautiful singing, her thundering snores. Only her failure. She hates her legend and herself, becoming very withdrawn and shy, afraid she will only embarrass herself more, even changing her own name to distance herself from the legend. She rarely if ever is seen smiling, often found staring solemnly at the sky. The closest she gets is when she partakes in her favorite pastime: bird watching.


    Any mention of her true name or her legend will wash away the shy girl and replace her with a being of hatred and anger more befitting of a Berserker than a Rider. To her, Icarus is the name of a failure, a foolish girl who has been shamed for centuries. Ikaria has no desire to be that person anymore or even associated with them. Only her father or Ariadne may call her Icarus. Anyone else plays with fire.


    Ikaria has only one wish. To undo her mistake, to listen to her father and live with him. She knows what happened to him after she died, the curse of Athena that led to his downfall, and blames herself for it. She wants to live and be with her father so he can be happy. She also wouldn't mind seeing the princess again, just to know if she was happy.


    Appearance
    A teenage girl with short, curly, blonde hair and stormy grey eyes. Ikaria often wears a tattered brown cloak over her body, only discarding it for battle. Beneath it, she wears a simple white tunic with a leather belt around her waist and leather sandals on her feet. The tunic itself is open at the back, letting her wings hang out, showing the burn scars where they fused to her skin. The wings themselves are black and fragile as if they were burnt.

    Olympias: What a great sheet, I think you really managed to make her a Servant of her own despite the reliance on Alexander, I specially like how her charge attack NP works, the balance between what's actually happening and what it means conceptually is great.
    I don't like the Zeus Thunder though, I like the idea of her womb being imbued with his thunder but the homunculi part seems really disconnected and just there to give it a more practical use in a HGW. I think just leaving the part about being able to birth demigods is more interesting since it ties well with her legend and wish, I don't see any reason to make it more "useful".

    Okay, that Icarus is adorable. A pity that you didn't add a cute FC but I'm aware it can be a hard task. Welcome to the group

    The Ikaria sheet is good all in all (I also found out that there's an island called Icaria, said to be where Icarus fell - go figure). Also, welcome aboard.
    A few notes, however:
    - As a Rider from the Age of the Gods, she ought to have Magic Resistance as a Class Skill
    - The bonuses to her parameters from Skills, especially Mana Burst (Sunlight) seem a bit redundant. She might as well just have the raised parameters right away (also, most Mana Bursts don't work like that).
    - As for Father's Gift, you might use an existing Skill for that one, say, Synthetic Limbs (Wings)? Then just have the Skill at B- and give it the effect of falling apart eventually (though that too seems a little odd - the wings melted due to going too close to the sun, after all).

    I do wonder how she'd react if she were mistaken for someone else, though. A winged human brings to mind an angel (or at least the modern interpretations of them). Would this go along with her desire to leave her old self behind?

    Thank you. I wasn't aware of the Magical Resistance for Age of Gods servants. I was a bit unsure of the bonuses as well, so I can change that easily. I also didn't know Synthetic Limbs was a skill either, though I do prefer the name as it makes it more personal to her. The reason they fall apart is because they're broken permenantly after her fall and are falling apart.

    Being called an angel, huh? I think she might like that a lot. Anything is better than being known as Icarus.

    Thanks! I tried finding a facexlakm to match her but I couldn't find one that really fit how she looks in my head. I was hoping she'd come more off as sad than adorable though.

    Magic Resistance isn't just for AoG Servants, but they have no real reason not to have it either, unlike more modern ones. Magic Resistance is just a Rider class Skill, that's all. Maybe somewhere along the lines of rank D?

    Oh yeah, the Rider class does have Magical Resistance. How did I forget that?

    I didn't want to mean she's not sad, because she is. I just have a thing for sad/apathetic girls ^^'

    Berserker of the Apache
    Faceclaim

    FC Link
    Servant Class: Berserker
    Alternate Classes: Assassin
    True Name: Mbu'tco'
    Alignment: Chaotic Stupid
    Origin: Native American Mythology
    Armament: Talons

    Parameters:
    STR: A
    END: B
    AGI: C
    MANA: B
    LUCK: E
    NP: D

    Skills
    Class Skills:

    Mad Enhancement - Rank D: The Class Skill that characterizes a Berserker, raising basic parameters and strengthens one's physical abilities in exchange of hindering mental capacities and/or in exchange for their sense of reason.
    STR and END parameters are ranked up. Berserker’s penchant for stupidity is amplified and complex reasoning is impaired.

    Personal Skills:

    Divinity - Rank E: As the son of the Sun, Berserker would normally be granted a high rank in Divinity. Due to his many evil deeds and being denounced for them by his father, however, his Divinity has degraded.

    Familiar (Owls) - Rank A+: Allows the use of owls as familiars. Berserker can control owls through thought alone. In a limited fashion, the owls may even be used to communicate with the spirits of the dead.
    In addition, an effect similar to ‘Shapeshift’ is attained. At Berserker’s death, his feathers became owls, scattering around the world. Thus he has the ability to split himself into a great number of owls. He can also use this Skill to tune his body into being either more like an owl or more like a human, depending on the situation.

    Aptitude for Slaughter - Rank B: A Skill possessed by Heroic Spirits fitting the Assassin or Berserker classes. Attacks made with one’s own body gain a plus modifier in their damage dealt against 'humans'.
    For being notorious for killing many humans during the time of legends as well as transcending to become an omen of death, Berserker is afforded this Skill.

    Bogeyman - Rank C: A Skill born from one’s reputation as an enemy of children, used to frighten them into good behaviour.
    As a creature of night, Berserker gains a bonus to various checks during the night. He also receives a damage bonus against young Servants and Servants incarnated as children.

    Noble Phantasms

    Dying Dream
    Aniné Naʼiidzeeł

    Anti-Unit (Self), Rank C+
    Berserker’s status as an omen of death, especially when appearing in dreams, crystallized into a Noble Phantasm. Aniné Naʼiidzeeł is a Noble Phantasm existing only within the realm of dreams, and can only be activated by Berserker himself falling asleep.
    Within Berserker’s dreaming mind, he is shown visions of the present, especially of his adversaries, the other Servants and their Masters. This way, Berserker can glean information of his opponents. However, the longer Berserker dreams, the more detailed these visions become, and he will eventually start gleaning his enemies’ weaknesses. Should he focus on dreaming of a single target for more than a day, Berserker can even see a “chain of events that will lead to the target’s demise”. Using this knowledge, it is possible to re-enact his vision, creating a situation where the end result of Berserker’s vision is far more likely than it would normally be.
    Should the target of Aniné Naʼiidzeeł be asleep at the same time as Berserker, an owl will appear in their dreams as an omen, warning them of Berserker’s eyes upon them.

    Description
    Likes: Human meat, night
    Dislikes: Pain, earthquakes
    Talents: Hunting, killing
    Natural Enemy: Coyote

    Berserker’s true identity is Mbu'tco', also known by the name of Old Man Owl.

    Mbu'tco' is as he was depicted in legend, appearing as a man-eating monster, at least on the surface. However, as a Servant, he is not all that antagonistic towards humans. Rather, he comes across as quite friendly, if dim. In fact, should his Master be someone he sees promise in, he might even try to teach them his ways (whether they wish to learn or not).
    Though he is not averse to eating humans for sustenance, he does not outright seek them out, at least as long as he is sustained by a Master. This is in part due to his demise in legend, where his death came from his father abandoning him due to his evil deeds, and assisting a hero in carrying out revenge on Mbu'tco'. He does his best not to act out his desires so he won’t be punished again.
    As a Berserker, Mbu'tco' is easy to trick and manipulate. He now possesses little understanding as to the fineries of combat, and will be mystified by many Noble Phantasms of a more elaborate nature. However, Mbu'tco' also possesses cunning befitting of a monster, being capable of using his abilities with a great deal of prowess.
    Mbu'tco' has a wish for the Holy Grail… If only he could remember it. Whatever his wish is, it is strong enough to allow him to be summoned into a Holy Grail War, and judging by his legend and reputation, it is unlikely to be anything pleasant.
    He will see his Master as their own person, unlike most Berserkers, who see the Master as someone they would never attack. Shades of his experiences with his son will eventually creep into Mbu'tco'’s mind, however, and once this happens, he will most likely begin his bumbling attempts to groom his Master into a successor.

    Lore
    Mbu'tco' was the son of the Sun, appearing in many different forms in Native American myths. He was also a man-eating ogre, ravaging the early populations of humans. He was also a sometime companion of Coyote, and was fooled by him many times.
    His death came from one of his careless killings, as he killed a close friend of another sun of the Sun, He. Seeking reparation, He informed the Sun of Mbu'tco'’s deeds, claiming the right to take vengeance. The Sun agreed, and assisted He in taking down Mbu'tco'.
    Though he died, he haunted the minds of men even in death, taking the form of an omen of demise. His death is also said to have spread owls to every corner of the Earth.

    That was actually a happy accident. The other option would've been Myrina.
