    Personality
    It is not my intention to brag, but I was considered in life a woman with plenty of virtues. As it is expected from a queen, my judgments are rigorous yet just. If a man offers me a large sum of money as a bail to avoid execution, I shall reject the money and order that it is distributed among his wife and children. Needless to say, that the man shall be executed nevertheless. The egoism of leading his family to ruin in order to save his own head is yet another crime that must be punished.

    I may be elegant and refined, but I am far from being frail. Forget not that the women of Castilla, no, the women of Spain are strong women. I am not a pretty lady that will just stay inside her palace, laughing with other noblewomen while our men do battle for us. I shall personally stand on the battlefield, and fight. Besides that, if I want my dream to become true, I cannot let others do the dirty job. It would be unjust if I took the credit for winning a battle in which I did not get involved.

    I am a queen that rules and battles, but I am also a caring mother. I did my best to guide all of my children to the righteous way, and to make sure that they would grow up safe and happy. Longing for them to never have their hands smeared with blood, I kept dying my own hands red. Such was my devotion to them that, whenever there was an emergency, I rushed alone towards their location as soon as I was informed. It is a shame that this sacrifice of mine seemed to be accursed rather than rewarded…

    Because I have a dream… No, because I would do whatever is in my power to achieve that dream, I respect brave people that never give up. Men who strive to materialize their ambitions with their own power catch my interest. They can count with my support. That force of will, that endeavor, are the foundations of Castilla and Spain. Still, there are times in which the dreams of others clash with mine, but alas, I shall not become the one to renounce to my wish. If they want to destroy my dream, they will have to demonstrate that their resolution is stronger than mine. Although, I cannot help but feel sadness when I am opposed by my own family.

    As a pious Christian, I cannot hold a wish for the Holy Grail. But unfortunately, regrets reside in my heart. As strong as may be, in the outside I still have things to repent. Many, if not all of those things, were caused by my dream, yet I would not go as far as wishing to give it up because of my burdens. As a queen, I wished for a nation in which every citizen shared the same beliefs as one, in which heretics would be punished as a reform and executed as a last resort, yet the inquisitors killed and punished more people than necessary for unjust causes. It is a shame that this affected the reputation of my country so negatively.

    As a mother, I could never get over the demise of my sons, but the heaviest of my regrets is my relation with my daughter Juana. She was such a brave and intelligent girl… From among all my children, she was the one that resembled me the most… She could have become an even better queen than me… But I punished the same qualities that made me become what I am, only because she was moved by a different idea… For me, a woman that always watched over the welfare of my family, having done such a thing is an unforgivable sin. I am sure that Juana passed away cursing me and that she will never forgive me, but… I want to talk with her again, and apologize…

    But it is her fault to begin with. She straightforwardly showed her opposition and reticence to have anything to do with Christianity while knowing that she was the daughter of the Catholic Kings. As smart as she was, she lacked the cunning to dissimulate and the tact to treat this issue appropriately. She ought to have thought about it properly before acting in the way she did. Good Lord, what a mulish girl she was…

    Treatment with the Master: I only answer the call of a mage with a dream and the determination to never resign to it. That person is not superior nor inferior to me, but an equal. We stand on the same ground as fellow dreamers. It goes without saying that this is correct as long as our interests are parallel or coincident. I shall sever my contract if my Master dares to interfere with my ideals.

    I sincerely expect to be on good terms with my Master. Since I see us as coequals, there ought not to be any impediment to establish a friendship between us. To me, a good friendship consists on relying each other to support ourselves when a problem arises. Trust is of great importance.

    It is completely useless to try acting as a mother for someone who is not my own child, for it will not atone for the mistakes I made with my own children, yet I cannot resist the urge of being maternal when my Master is young. I think that tampering them from time to time is not bad, and it encourages me to fight in the same manner as fighting for my sons and daughters did.

    Likes: “You desire to know which are my interests? I ought not to say it, but the truth is I feel that Moorish art is not bad. Their buildings have an exquisite beauty. Especially the Alhambra.”

    Dislikes: “I am fond of bravery, but I shall not tolerate disobedience. A dog that bites when not told to may eventually attack its own master.”

    Wish for the Grail: “The Holy Grail? Fool, do not dare jesting with such a thing! That is the sacred vessel of the Lord!”


    Skills
    Class skills
    Magic Resistance C
    Cancels spells with a chant of two verses. As an Archer, her rank of resistance isn’t really outstanding, but in other classes, her faith could grant her a much higher rank. Precisely because of that faith, she is defenseless against sacraments of the Holy Church.

    Independent Action A
    Can move freely without help from a Master for about a week. As a queen, Isabel was most of the time accompanied by many escorts and guardians. However, in the case of there being an emergency that required of her presence, she refused to be accompanied and traveled alone, something unthinkable for the queen of a warring nation.

    Personal skills
    Catholic King A
    A skill that grants an advantage against demonic entities and non-Saint divinities. Despite the different name, this skill is essentially the same as Holy King. The change on the title is Isabel’s personal choice, although she can’t help but doubt if it’s fine to brag about her title like this. A title granted by the Pope Alexander VI to both Isabel and Fernando due to their virtues and actions that expelled Islam and Judaism from Spain.

    Charisma B
    A skill of the Saver class. A rare talent consisting on one’s charm and the natural talent to command or unify an army or a nation that increases the abilities of allies. Holding a rank of B, Isabel’s talent is more than enough to lead an entire country as its queen.
    Despite her general depiction as an adamant and stern queen, in contrast with the magnanimity and affability of the king Fernando, she was in truth easier to approach than what it was said. When a mutiny was started in Segovia, Isabel traveled 60 km by horse alone, opened the gates of the alcazar, and attended to the complaints of the mutineers, earning their fidelity. During battles, she always stood at the rearguards with her children, the impact of her presence being such that it not only motivated her troops, but sometimes even shocked the enemy to the point of surrendering to her courage.

    Protection of the Faith A++
    Although it’s a divine protection given to those who devout their lives to their religion, this skill isn’t a blessing from a god, but an absoluteness of body and mind born from beliefs. However, an excessively high rank may cause abnormalities in personality.
    Creating the Inquisition to punish heretics, turning Spain into the only country to have been invaded by Muslims and returned to Christianity, obtaining the title of Catholic Queen, sending Jews to exile… That and more was done by the inflexible Isabel to make the light of God bathe the land again, truly an example to follow.
    Over time, the figure of Isabel became inspirational for some future leaders of Spain, including the dictator Francisco Franco, who used many symbols of the Catholic Kings in his propaganda.
    Because of Isabel’s own mental firmness, her mind is clear. That said, she regrets some things she did for the sake of her convictions.

    Torture Techniques B
    Bloodshed is strengthened, adding more damage to injury. Usage of torture devices will increase the damage dealt even more.
    Isabel herself didn’t personally torture anyone, but she was the creator of the Spanish Inquisition, which was in charge of judging and punishing those accused of heresy. Though exaggerated by history as the responsible of thousands of unfair deaths, it is true that many people were declared guilty without enough basis. Several instruments and techniques of torture were used until the heretic admitted their sins, even if they didn’t actually commit them. “If you wash yourself, it’s because you’re dirty. If you’re dirty, it’s because you’ve done something impure”, such motto seemed to be followed to the letter by the inquisitors.
    Through the usage of this skill, the burden of being suspect of sinning is added to the target’s mental condition, forcing them to admit their faults as true even if they are innocent. Most of the times the tortures were extended until a confession is made, however, there was a certain girl who resisted and didn’t give up her convictions no matter what… The pain of having no choice but to make that girl suffer is the main reason why Isabel is reluctant to use this skill frequently.


    Noble Phantasm

    Reconquista
    By the grace of the Lord, the land shall recover its original splendor

    Type:
    Anti-Army
    Rank: A
    Description:

    “Heed my voice. I hereby announce that the light of the Lord shall shine again over this land. Heretic and blasphemous ones, brace yourselves. Your sins shall be judged once you are in my hand.”

    Not a Noble Phantasm actually possessed by Isabel in life, but actually something that represents and crystallizes her going and her life. It takes the form of arrows because it’s based on Isabel’s own coat of arms, and it’s the reason why she qualifies for the Archer class. Since Isabel chose
    arrows
    flechas
    for her coat of arms as a representation of her husband Fernando, this Noble Phantasm could also be considered an expression of her love. Thinking about it, her love that was distant yet struck with precision from afar was truly like a shot arrow.

    As expected from an Archer, Isabel’s arrows have an excellent range, on the level of kilometers. When Reconquista is activated, the single arrow that Isabel shoots towards the sky falls from between the clouds as a downpour of thin needles of light. The visual depiction is greatly akin to a crepuscular ray shining over the enemy front. That said, the damage output is rather low, even when taking into account that the great amount of projectiles makes it hard to emerge with few wounds from the battlefield. The reason for this is that this Noble Phantasm isn’t a Noble Phantasm for annihilating the enemy, but to conquer them.

    In effect, as a Noble Phantasm meant for conquest, it has the property of expanding Isabel’s territory. The area between the place from which Isabel shoots the arrow and the place where it falls becomes her domains. She obtains the right to exert her authority over her terrain and those within it, overlapping the authority of others and suppressing whichever power they may have over the land.

    ― The land turns into Isabel’s domains. In other words, it becomes Castilla. Isabel’s parameters receive a fame boost as long as she’s stepping on her land, but that’s a trivial matter. What is really to be feared of it is her right to compel anyone standing on it to abide by her conditions.

    “If you desire to live in my nation, your heart must bear love towards the same God my heart does. Should you refuse to comply…”

    The advantage obtained through the Catholic King skill is magnified and extended through the whole area, exerting a pressure that continuously lowers the parameters of the enemy, and that becomes harsher against demons or divinities not related with Christianity. Conversely, those who are devout Christians are not recognized as enemies, and therefore are unaffected. This effect can be in a sense considered an extreme kind of mental interference, what makes it possible to offer resistance by possessing an unbreakable determination. If the enemy surrenders and accepts Isabel’s terms from the bottom of their heart, the pressure will disappear.


    Relations
    Christopher Columbus: “Columbus may be a dirty bastard, but even rats have dreams. The sparkle in his eyes said he would not give up until he reached his goal. That is why I funded his expedition. If only in that sense, he and I are the same kind of people.”

    Jeanne Darc: “Hahahahahahaha! What an irony! I beg your pardon, but it is so amusing…! You share your name with my daughter yet you could not possibly be more different from her! Were she here, she would most likely go berserk!”

    Jeanne Alter: “……… Forgive me, I spaced out. That wicked saint brought up a bad memory from the past…”

    Gilles de Rais: “I see… So this can happen as well… Worship in excess may lead to downfall and impiety… I shall engrave it in my mind, so that I can remember it even after defeating you…”

    Karl der Große: “I never expected to meet the Holy King Carolus Magnus. That love of his is truly like the one of the Lord. I could not possibly compare to him… In that sense, and in any other…”

    Avicebron: "Of course, I have heard stories about Solomon ibn Gabirol. His dream to create a world without suffering deserves my utmost respect. However, attempting to replicate the first human through witchery is an unforgivable sacrilege."

    Vlad III: "Impaler King, your beliefs are doubtlessly correct, but as a fellow Christian king, I cannot allow the excessive cruelty of your methods."

    Napoleon: "Iheard that the French troops were defeated by the Spanish citizens long after my death. Haha, you cannot understimate Spain after all! Specially women, like that girl called Agustina!"

    Iskandar: "Magnificent. This army is like a dream made true for me. It is the very same thing I hoped my country to become. As expected from the King of Conquerors, he makes justice to his title of 'The Great'."

    Spartacus: “Good. I do not hate that resolve. As long as your blade does not point towards me, you may keep striving for freedom, gladiator.”


    I'm going to be busy with tons of group works these days and don't know when I'll have time to continue with this sheet, so please consider this a mere placeholder.

    Skills

    Class Skills:
    Presence Concealment A+
    The ability to conceal oneself as a Servant. A skill common to Assassins. At this rank, his presence is hidden completely and he is almost impossible to detect. Very suitable for spying. However, should he attempt to attack, the efficiency will certainly decrease.

    Personal Skills:
    Subversive Activities A+
    The talent to reduce enemy forces in the preliminary stages before going into battle - in other words, the user is a proponent and example of the idea that a battle has begun long before the fighting begins. However, the higher the ranking of this Skill, the more one's spiritual status as a hero declines. At this rank, it is possible to disable nearly 75% of the total military force before the enemy advances.

    Assassin receives this skill because his legendary bloodless capture of the fortress of Alamut by first converting the neighbouring tribes, infiltrating the fortress itself, and then buying the fortress wholesale from its baffled owner.

    Garden of Paradise A
    A skill based on the Servant having, or being said to have, access to the mythical Garden of Eden (also called the Garden of Paradise). This skill is derived from the story mentioned in the narrative of Marco Polo: prospective devotees of the Nizari Ismail were drugged and brought to a paradise-like garden, then were told they would need to serve the cause should they wish to return, as well as other fictions. From this story comes the popular etymology of the word Assassin: "users of hashish".

    But these are just stories and nothing more, a false tale of a false garden. Nonetheless, the skill functions as a sort of pseudo-Territory Creation, although it sets up not a field advantageous to a magus, but which stimulates faith instead. In addition, it replenishes the mana of those that consider themselves "true believers".

    Familiar (Hajal) E
    The ability to make use of birds as familiars, more specifically the Alectoris chukar, commonly known as the Chukar partridge or simply Chukar. These birds can be directed by thought alone, although a simple contract must be established first.

    This bird was the symbol of the Assassins for some time, though they knew it as the "hajal". Oddly enough, it has come to also represent intense and unrequited love. The question of if Assassin himself is aware of this connotation is a mystery.
    Noble Phantasm

    Delusional Devotion
    Zabaniya

    Type: Anti-Group
    Rank: A
    Max Targets: 19

    The first of the 19 Zabaniyas, Noble Phantasms belonging to each of the Old Men of the Mountain, all taking the name "Hassan-i-Sabbah". These Noble Phantasms are all ultimate assassination techniques and exceedingly lethal.

    This first Zabaniya differs from the others on some key points, however. Firstly, it is an ability born of natural piety, years of concentrated study, and inborn talent. It is not the result of grafting divine miracles unto his body, but instead an ability wholly his own. Although it could perhaps be said that it is the result of taking on the Shaytan's mind.

    In any case, this Noble Phantasm is one that inspires extreme devotion in its targets. By lacing his vocal chords with magical energy and delivering a speech, Hassan-i-Sabbah attempts to convert those around him to his point of view. Usually, this would mean inciting them to recite the Shahada (la ilaha illa-llahu muhammadun rasulu-llah: There is no god but God and Muhammad is the messenger of God) and converting to Islam. However, he can also use it to convince targets to follow him to their deaths, leap off of cliffs, and willingly bring others into his grasp.

    This ability uses Mental Interference, and so it is possible to power through it given the right skills. Also, should the target be unable to understand Hassan, then it will have no effect whatsoever.
    Lore
    Hassan i-Sabbah was born in Qom, a city in Iran. Later, his family moved to Rayy - a noted hotbed of radical Islamic thought. There, Hassan became a believer of Nizari Ismaili Islam - a substream of Shi'i Islam, the birth of which Hassan-i-Sabbah was present for. In Rayy, Hassan became respected for his austere and devoted commitment to the da'wa (an Arabic word meaning "mission").

    To further his studies, Hassan was told to go to Cairo. At this point, he was a mere 17 years old. However, Hassan took about 2 years to reach Cairo, touring many other regions in the process.

    Somewhere along these travels, he was told of a local legend, a mysterious black shrine which was said to be cursed; upon visiting this tomb, he caught a single glance of a man wearing a skull mask. In that moment, Hassan experienced true terror, true religious fervor, and true love. It was at this moment that he became an Assassin in heart and spirit.

    After arriving in Cairo and staying there for 3 years, Hassan resumed his travels. Finally, he chanced upon the fortress of Alamut, and decided to make it his. This took him two years: first, he converted the nearby peoples, then took over the fort bloodlessly two years later, and finally bought it from its befuddled owner.

    Once this sanctum was secured, Hassan spent years devoting himself faithfully to studying Islam and the Quran. It was said that he never left his quarters, excepting only two times when he went up to the roof and wondered if it was all worth it. A common legend in the Brotherhood had it that on those nights, a blue flame burned in the candles of his study for a few moments, but then flickered out.

    Finally, on June 12th of 1124, 74 years old, Hassan wavered again. The Order, by this point, was firmly established and ready to go on without him. Idly, he considered a minor heresy. The candles burned blue once more.

    When morning came, assistants found Hassan in bed, having died peacefully. Ink still clung to his fingers, and some paper was missing. However, despite the evidence that Hassan must have written a final letter and testament, none was ever found on his person. The peculiar blue flame was seen only twice more in the history of the Order: at his funeral, and when the fortress of Alamut finally fell to the Mongol invaders in 1256.
    Personality
    A quiet, introspective old man. Animated when it comes to matters of the faith and a surprising font of knowledge on many, diverse topics. He considers himself a scholar. Beneath the seeming kindly librarian and almost grandfatherly figure, however, lies a core of unbending steel.

    Hassan says he does not like violence, but what he means is: he does not like violence committed in his presence. He has no problem with ordering bloody, public murders. Without any remorse, Hassan will use his ability on those close to a target to convert them, have them act without regard for their own lives to kill his targets, and continue until the target is dead or emotionally destroyed. When pressed, he will justify himself by saying that this way, at least, their souls will be saved.
    Relationships

    The First Old Man of the Mountain:
    Hassan was struck speechless at their first encounter. Tears sprang into his eyes. Loudly, he praised Allah for his second life.
    Since then, Hassan has taken to following the First Hassan around the halls of Chaldea. When pressed, he will say he is attempting to gain further enlightenment from the First's way of life.

    For his part, said First indulges him and treats him kindly. The sight has been said to be rather odd, but quite moving in its own queer way.

    Cursed-Arm Hassan:
    "My boy. You became faceless to become famous? Hoh. That's a bit backwards, isn't it? Haha. Still, your results speak for themselves. Good job."

    Hundred-Faced Hassan:
    "Ohoh. You're the last of us, then? I'm sure you tried your very best. Don't worry, child. You're not to blame."

    Hassan of Serenity:
    "Poisoning everything you touch... I see. I truly am sorry, child. You carry quite the burden."

    No-Name Assassin:
    "My... A noviate was summoned, too? Still, I cannot help but admire your resolve and your talent. Truly, you will be a fine Assassin."

    Creator Notes:
    This was based on a simple question that popped into my head: what kind of man would the original Hassan-i-Sabbah have to be to attract the attention of King Hassan to such a degree that he personally involved himself? There's got to be a story there. This is the result.

    Nmr-3 a very good profile but why are his paratermeter so high ?
    and in comparison to cursed arm hassan (think here on his performence in heavenfeel) are his mellee and throwing skills ?
    and how would he view my "future" Hassan Umbra ??
    When you wake a Dragon in his Lair...

    His parameters are equal or lower than those of Cursed-Arm Hassan. In terms of direct combat skills, they're not his forte and he won't engage in them unless desperate.

By the way, any thoughts on my Calais and Zetes Servant?
    I know this is late when it comes to commenting on your Calais and Zetes sheet, but I noticed that you reversed the twins' personalities as shown in Heroes of Olympus, which is kind of hilarious. If that is the case, you should have given this version of Cal a horrible '80s hairdo and this version of Zetes the inability to say words more than two syllables long

    ADVENT BEAST
    AN EVIL OF MAN MANIFESTS

    BEAST V/R



    Class: Beast

    Sin: Decay

    True Name: Cronus

    Alignment: Chaotic Evil

    Parameters

    Strength: A
    Endurance: C
    Agility: C
    Mana: EX
    Luck: A

    Noble Phantasm: EX


    Skills

    Class Skills:

    Independent Manifestation: A
    A special Skill that permits unsupported manifestation into reality, without necessity of energy cost or of summoning by a Master. As the skillholder is signified as a "confirmed existence", a resistance is rendered against the instantaneous imposition of death and attacks affected by time manipulation. Following his defeat by the hands of the Greek Gods, Beast V/R's body was dismembered and thrown in a different dimension created by Nyx while his essence scattered throughout the World so that it could not reform. This undignified treatment ensured that the Titan couldn't rise again as a threat, but his death had to be prevented as well so as to not destabilize the concept of time upheld by his interpretation as Chronos. As an existence that is neither dear or alive, Beast V/R is completely immune to the imposition of instant death and especially time manipulation.

    The Authority of the Beast: A
    An Anti-Human Skill that enhances the skillholder's capacity to harm existences that are classified as Humans. In Beast V/R's case, it prevents human beings from "reaching excellence" and forcefully confines them to mediocrity. The origin of this Skill lies in the Titan Cronus' fear of being overthrown, leading him to the terrible act of infanticide and cannibalism so that no one could challenge his rule and surpass him. It affects Servants by not allowing their parameters and Class Skills to exceed C-Rank. If the Skill's aim were to cull the abilities that define an individual, one would find it odd that it does not target Personal Skills - a Heroic Spirit's true talents - as well, but as Beast V/R is an apathetic Evil of Man whose decayed self hampers his capacity to truly love and understand humanity, it doesn't come off as surprising.

    Self-Modification: EX
    The aptitude to remold one's own body or merge one's own flesh with body parts of others. At this rank, even the Saint Graph can be altered. After his manifestation as an Evil of Man, Beast V/R reassembled his rotting body parts together and restored his dispersed spirit - as a consequence, the linearity of time was destroyed. Taking advantage of this collapse, he traveled to the past and ate a part of Tiamat during her fight against the ancient Gods before gruesomely devouring Inanna, Ishtar, Anat and Astarte. After traveling a second time to Ancient Greece to consume Cybele, Artemis, Athena and Aphrodite, he returned to the moment of his defeat - the Titanomachy. He ate his daughters Era and Demeter for the second time - he did not even spare his mother Gaia before finally killing his past self and forcing him to suffer the same torment he had gone through, thus reestablishing the continuity of time while retaining the integrity of his own soul. With the ingestion of several Divine Cores from Earth Mother Goddesses, he restored the functionality of his weakened body and acquired an absolute Divine Authority over life outperforming even that of the forgotten mother Catalhoyuk.

    Personal Skills:

    Patḗr Kronos: A
    Beast V/R's original Authority as Father Time. As the Skill's name implies, it confers time manipulation on a great scale, but it's still not something that makes it possible to travel back to the genesis of the planet. Time can be stopped, accelerated and slowed. Time travel is possible, but the amount of Magical Energy required is such that not even several Divine Spirits can provide it. The only reason Beast V/R was able to travel to different eras without effort was due to the linearity of time having been temporarily disrupted. Even with his large reserves, he can accomplish such a feat only once more - and that's enough for his goal.

    Nega-Life: A
    Paradoxically, an Evil of Man that has stolen the Authority of Life owns a Skill that negates the concept of sustenance. Upon physically touching Beast V/R's sickle, living beings become unable to receive or consume any substance for the sake of sustaining their life. In the case of Servants, they lose the capability to receive magical energy by any means. Deriving from the episode during which Cronus stripped his father Uranus of his fertility by castrating him, this Skill functions by banishing the target from the cycle of creation: as it's something that finds its essence in the act of procreation, an existence unable to birth life is considered dead.

    Potnia Theron - Garden of Human Fruits: EX
    A Skill that grants immense power over the cycle of life and death, the Divine Authority of the Earth Mother Goddess Catalhoyuk. Beast V/R ate and stole the fragments of power that had been inherited by the Earth Mother Goddesses that succeeded the original, with the intent of making the planet his garden. Although its original function is to control both life and death, Beast V/R reconfigured the setting so as to gain even more mastery than Catalhoyuk in the former at the cost of completely forgoing the latter. In game terms: if B.B. leveled the Life skill tree to get a disgustingly broken defensive passive and maxed the Death skill tree for the game-breaking ultimate super-move (C.C.C.), Beast V/R focused solely on the Life skill tree and didn't merely max it but kept unreasonably spending points in it to somehow break the abilities' level caps and give birth to more abilities that originally didn't exist. When it comes to defense, Potnia Theron grants:


    • regeneration that completely heals Beast V/R's physical body every 8 seconds.
    • an immunity against all attacks originating from the children of Earth. However, as it is something that rejects a rebellion against the system of life, Beast V/R is unable to display an unconditional immunity since he has forsaken the other half of creation, death. Therefore, an exception is made for attackers that "do not stand on the earth, do not swim in the oceans and do not fly in the skies".
    • nullification of all ailments that negatively affect Beast V/R.
    • nullification of all enhancements that empower the parameters of Beast V/R's enemies.


    With an absolute Authority over life itself, he is capable of creating an endless self-sustaining army by either manipulating the children of Earth to "obey their mother" through physical contact or planting seeds that instantly grow into soldiers with parameters set precisely on C-Rank. Yet, such tricks are merely the prelude to this Divine Authority's true potential, reachable only after the absorption of all Earth Mother Goddesses in order to activate Beast V/R's Noble Phantasm.



    Noble Phantasm

    "Now --- rejoice. Welcome to the new universe.
    The Cursed Creator - Father Time Cronus has come.
    Behold this silence. As the great tree's shadows cover the world, Humanity is now at peace."

    Cursed Creator Cronus: C.C.C.
    Anti-World/Anti-Humanity
    Rank: EX


    The Authority Potnia Theron - taken to its greatest limits - purges reality by having Beast V/R's vision of the world rewrite it. It is not something that utterly annihilates opposition like Cursed Cutting Crater, but it's more akin to a cancer that immediately assimilates the planet to the extent that the cancer itself has now become the planet.

    Available only after having absorbed the Divine Cores of all Earth Mother Goddesses, it's a Noble Phantasm whose power and scale couldn't be attained even by the forgotten mother Catalhoyuk. Its form is that of a great tree, its height almost reaching space and wide enough to eclipse the largest human settlement.

    C.C.C. pierces into the Earth both literally and figuratively: its true function is to act as a "pillar" that - instead of fastening together the Layers of the World and ensuring its stability - weakens reality by tearing it apart with the Noble Phantasm's size. Its roots envelop the World's inner core and absorb it like a mother welcoming her progeny back into the womb. C.C.C. becomes the new World, turning the planet into a fertile garden that fills all living beings with "infinite life". They quickly turn into abominations more akin to flesh fruits, continuously growing as their self dwindles into that of a plant.

    Such an outcome is obviously unacceptable for the World as mankind is essentially dead and unable to proceed, but C.C.C. prevents a culling by stripping even that sort of authority from the timeline in which it is planted.



    Sin

    He will devour his sons and daughters.
    He will break the world's common sense.
    He will violate the essence of Goddesses.
    He will doom Humanity to an existence so meaningless that it can't even be called painful.
    And - at the very end - he will do nothing but eat and sleep, with the sort of self-satisfaction that only a God could demonstrate.

    There is no grand purpose and no hidden depths.

    He seeks such a conclusion only because it would please him. If Beast V/L is a Beast filled with rage born from his love for Man, Beast V/R is an Evil of Man who only truly loves himself.

    His reasoning isn't warped like that of Heaven's Hole, the Beast of Pleasure who believes herself to be the only human and therefore grants only a selfish salvation.
    The Beast of Decay is rotten to the core - both literally and figuratively.
    It's an Evil of Man embodying the depravity of humans who lose their morals and compassion and fill that void by indulging in aimless and disgusting hedonism.

    It's a spiritual Decay rather than the physical Regression of Beast II (incidentally, Cronus also qualifies as Beast of Regression).

    Although he doesn't lack the Love of Man, he doesn't truly cherish them.
    Beast V/R likes humans and - as he is true to his desires - he seeks their salvation only because it would please him as well.

    His Noble Phantasm - C.C.C. - lulls humans into an eternal and peaceful rest that Beast V/R truly considers blissful. The millennia he spent broken and disembodied were unbearably painful but also unfathomably harmonious.

    With the perspective of a deity, he forces this fate unto them as if it were a natural conclusion. No doubts or thoughts regarding "what comes after" worry him since the only constant in his mind is how to further please himself.

    The planet will turn into his personal garden, a paradise where he can endlessly indulge in "human fruits" overflowing with life. Nature will flourish once more on Earth, but the grotesque remains of the race once known as humans will remain as stains ruining its beauty.

    By the time he will be fought, his job as an Evil of Man will be almost complete.

    By travelling in time, he ate almost every heiress of Catalhoyuk: Tiamat, Ishtar, Inanna, Anat, Astarte in ancient Mesopotamia - Gaia, Hera and Demeter during the Titanomachy - Cybele, Artemis, Athena and Aphrodite in ancient Greece.

    The only Divine Core he lacks belongs to Parvati, in ancient India. That will be his final destination, as well as the point in time where the defenders of Humanity will wage war against Beast V/R.



    Relationships

    B.B.: "Mmmh, I wonder... is this rotten old man a senpai or kouhai? My game was released first, but he technically manifested earlier than me. Well, he is definitely a copycat since his abilities are clearly inspired by mines! Either way, would you mind if I sit back on this one? Beasts are always bad news, but this one is definitely a bad match for me. Although we both undertook the same voyage, we couldn't be more different. If I'm not careful, he will stare at me with that clock-head of his and possibly judge as something worth eating!"

    Beast I: "The Breaker of Time... mmph, a glorious crown does not befit this worm. He crawled out from the cave he was sealed in like a pathetic vermin and seeks nothing but further waste. He wasted energy for the purpose of wasting energy. The only sovereign worse than a King who does not take action is a King who is indifferent to the plight of others! It's laughable and maddening, that trash like that man and this giant exist in the first place!"

    Beast II: "Ahhhh.... AAAAAHAAAAH.... aaah... (approval, anger, worry)"

    Beast V/L: "I only judge the worthiness of Man. The actions of a god do not concern me. Ah, but this rage of mine should be more than enough to discern my feelings about the matter..."



    Notes

    I had actually written this just a few days after my Yama-Raja Beast, but realized that my first depiction of the Sin of Decay was a bit too similar to Regression. Even now, it resembles Pleasure too much for my liking and the only thing that might distinguish them is that the latter involves only sex.

    Cronus isn't terribly complex as a character and I attempted to fix that, but I eventually realized that I couldn't really add anything else without rewriting the entire sheet.

    I'm not exactly satisfied with the end result, but I figured that I might as well publish it rather than leaving it in my files forever.

    Mhmm, the concept is a bit too similar with Beast II. It's pretty interesting, but I feel this is one of the weaker entry in your Beast series. As you said, it can be further improved, but as of now it's almost as if it's saying that "the act of procrastinating a sheet will lead it into decay."

    Also, seeing these Beast servants gave me an idea for making my own Beast sheet.

    Ahah, harsh but true. It might have turned out better had I not abandoned it for months.

    Yeah, I reversed them. My logic was basically that Calais sounds more like an elegant and sophisticated name to me, so I gave him the more intellectual personality.

    Makes sense, and I think your logic may be the reason Rick decide to make Cal the dumb one to the point where he couldn't say his own name.

    Hey, I have some problems to contact the person who made the image I wanna use for my next Servant. It is okay if I post it in here even without permission, if I also put the link to the original in here and credit the person?

    I mean, I'm pretty sure that people do that all the time.

    Yes, it's not like you're claiming it's yours or anything.

    My Second Assassin Servant

    Assassin



    Art by: Exceel

    Identity
    True Name: Erwin Schrödinger
    Title: Father of Quantum Mechanics
    Alternate Classes: Caster
    Alignment: True Neutral
    Place of Origin: Germany
    Likes: Women, good food, sweets, going around, open-minded people
    Dislikes: Nazism, being criticized, close-minded people, bigotry


    Personality
    As a person who was a scientist in life who raised many questions and was consider one of the “fathers of quantum mechanics”, he is a person of an inquisitive nature, as most people would expect. However, he is far from being a serious and dedicated scientist, once he is a person who is inclined to follow his own ideals and wishes whenever is convenient to him.
    One of the main qualities of Assassin is that he is kind of a womanizer, as some people would actually expect from a person who had two women in his life. He is also a person who seems to care little to social regards, and who only wants to be happy and to follow his own heart and inclinations, making him even seen selfish and impulsive to the ones who are around him. He is the kind of person who despises prejudice of any kind, hence why he was so against the Nazism anti-Semitic ideologies.
    However, underneath it all, he is a who has a deep religious background, being the kind who honestly believes in the existence of a superior force in the world, and he is the kind of mammal who will often use theology as a form of philosophy, despite keeping it as separated from scientific matter as possible, and he will also avoid to involve it in the war when the situation is difficult.
    He has also a devious side, one that makes possible for him to smile to himself as he takes the lives of others. However, Assassin considers this strange, once he claims that he never had such inclinations in his life. He suspects that he might have acquired it as a side-effect of having been summoned under an irregular class…


    Background
    Assassin was born as an only child, and he grew up in a religious environment, but he also studied in Vienna, under Franz S. Exner and Friedrich Hasenöhrl. He read many books and become interested in science, working still young as the assistant of Exner.
    He grew up and gained titles of professor, he published many works that revealed new theories, for instance, the famous “wave mechanics”, and all of these advances and works made him be one of the scientists to receive the title of “father of quantum mechanics”. He was an individual with an unconventional domestic life, living with his wife and with yet another woman. Something that would cause many eyebrows to be raise and would grant him to have problems in being accept in positions of importance, like being professor of universities.
    He would leave Germany at some point, for he greatly disliked the anti-Semitism doctrines of Nazism. This positioning granted him to have many problems, because some universities refused to accept him due to political issues. At some point, he had an extensive trade of correspondence with Einstein, and it was doing this that he proposed one thought exercise that became greatly famous: “Schrödinger’s cat”.
    Eventually, he and his wife and mistress all moved to Ireland, where he became a citizen, in there, he wrote about fifty publications, including his explanation on is “unified field theory”.
    He had three daughters during his life, and he died at the age of 73 in Vienna from tuberculosis.

    Skills
    Class Skills
    Presence Concealment: This is the skill that allows Assassin to hide their presence, allowing them to approach without being detected.
    Due to his nature as an unorthodox Assassin, this skill is null on him, in a way that he is not able to use it to hide his presence, even though he more than compensates for it through the use of his Noble Phantasm.
    ---

    Personal Skills
    Innocent Monster: The skill that causes a Heroic Spirit to change in answer to the gossips and rumors around them, causing them to alter themselves in order to conform with the beliefs of others. However, in his particular case, it happens not because of any infame or rumors in his life, but a side effect of his Noble Phantasm, which relates him with the famous thinking exercise of the cat in the box. Due to it, he acquires some qualities of a cat, including the ears, the tail, and eyes with vertical pupils, like the ones of a domestic cat.
    D Rank
    Natural Born Genius: This is the skill that represents the natural genius of an individual, which made them famous in life. In his case, this is a side effect of him being one of the men who received the title “father of quantum mechanics”, and of course, to be considered one of the men who founded such a thing, you need to be someone very, very smart. Due to the effects of it, he is able to use his intellect to acquire most of the skills, except the ones that take tool on the body or that are relate to the very nature or legend of a Heroic Spirit.
    C Rank


    NP
    Schrödinger’s Cat
    Paradoxical Conundrum


    Anti-Unity (Self)/Anti-Placement
    C+ Rank

    This is a Noble Phantasm that he acquires due to his summoning as an Assassin-Class Servant, a sublimation of one of the things that he is most famous for, the paradoxical cat inside of a box. In the experiment, the cat is placed inside a box with a mechanism that will release a venomous fume on a random time, and until the box is opened and the cat observed, it is considered alive and dead at the same time. This is a way of explaining the physical theory that says that subatomic particles are considered to be in all possible locations until the moment they are observed.
    This Noble Phantasm is a manifestation of this paradoxical thinking, allowing Assassin to affect himself with the very principle of the paradoxical cat, and this way, he is in all possible locations and states at the same time. This manifests on his own body in the form of qualities of a cat, like the eyes, the ears and the tail, all making him look like the traditional “neko” form animes.

    Due to the effects of this Noble Phantasm, which is continually active, Assassin is able to cause himself to exist everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Due to this, he is able to simultaneously exist into all and none of the points that are not being watched by any living creature. Thanks to this, so long as the place is not being watched, he can exist in it and not exist in it at the same time, forming a kind of paradoxical existence that allows him to be in there and not be in there at the same time. This way, he is able to perceive everything from that point as if he was in there, at the same time that he is not noticed in there, as if he is “there and not there at the same time”. This multiplies to any and all spaces that are not being observed, allowing him to exist simultaneously on all of them, always being “there and not there at the same time” in all of them. It is only because of this Noble Phantasm that he classifies to be summon as an Assassin, even if he is an irregular one. Of course in the moment that one of the places that he is “there and not there” is observed by anyone, no matter who, it no longer classifies as a place where he can “be and not be”, and he has to choose between either being there or not being. In case he chooses to be there, he will actually be there, what means that he will cease to exist in all other places and exist in there and only in there, that becoming his real and effective location. In the case he is “not there”, it is simply decided that this is a place where he definitely not is, and this way, he cannot be “there” on that place, since it is observed that he is definitely not there.
    This Noble Phantasm also has a protective nature, once it can assume that, while not observed, he is consider dead and alive at the same time, much like the cat in the box. Due to this, he is able to cheat his own death, because if he is killed in a moment, but them someone stops observing him, he immediately ceases being dead, and he is “dead and alive”. This way, in the moment someone stops watching him, he is able to effectively heal all his injuries and come back to life, once he is not truly dead unless observed as dead. The result of this is that, even if he is dead, he will only truly die if someone is watching him dead until the moment his body dissipates and he returns to the Throne of Heroes, for in the moment when he is not being observed, he will no longer be dead, instead being under the effect of the paradox.

    This Noble Phantasm might be considered weak for it is limited to the idea of being observed or not. It means that he cannot materialize or use it in any place that is being observed by anyone. However, this Noble Phantasm is actually one of many resources, for it depends on constant observation to be neutralized. So, if someone who is looking at him loses line of sight (by having him covered in smoke or hiding behind an object), looks away (even for a second) or even blinks, he is no longer observed, and his Noble Phantasm acts up. This makes this Noble Phantasm be limited but with near limitless potential at the same time.

    It is safe to say that everything about this Noble Phantasm is a great paradox…
