    Weeell...
    This has more to do with how I view the Beasts themselves. Noble Phantasms are a feature of Heroic Spirits, and in my view the Beasts don't strictly qualify for that. Rather, a Beast's Noble Phantasm is the Beast itself (and in Typhon's case, it's the whole touch of destruction bit coupled with EX Strength). I also don't think he has much beyond what he is that even qualifies as a candidate for a Noble Phantasm.
    Harpe was, as I understand, wielded by Zeus against him so that's right out, and Typhonomachy is too event-like to qualify properly.

    As for why two of the Beasts have Noble Phantasms, I feel that Goetia basically stole his from Solomon (or shared enough of a connection to use them), whereas Kiara's Noble Phantasm is due to her qualification as a regular Heroic Spirit, based on the legend of her alternate universe version (and Kiara happened to just get boosted beyond even that, propelling her to Beast level).
    Granted, I'm a little hazy on the process behind the latter, but these are the conclusions I've come to.

    I was also considering using Typhon as my 2nd entry to the contest, but decided to post it here after all.

    Philip II: His NP turning the surroundings into "France" reminds me a lot of the idea I have of an Archer Isabel I with a NP about the Reconquista. I should keep working with her...

    One Question Shiki-pon would you say that for one sin embodiment would qualify more than one candidates(i hope you can understand what i mean)as Beast class servant and must inevitably follow a Beast a particular sin ?

    Sorry Shiki-pon
    could you explain me what meaning the numbers have are they related to the sins (of the bible) ,if not please correct me ?

    Hm, I see. Perhaps I should work harder to make a proper NP. Isabel is one of the most important Spanish rulers, after all. She needs something more glorious than "arrows that turn their trail into your territory".

    Saber

    "Why's it called the Round Table? Don't be fooled by all that equality nonsense. Back when we were children, Arto- *ahem* Arthur, Father and I were huddled around a dinky little wooden table as we ate together. The number of people grew over time, but that familial experience never did."



    True Name: Sir Kay
    Title: "Kay The Beloved Braggart"
    Alternate Classes: Rider
    Origin: Mythological
    Region: Britain
    Catalyst: The Scabbard Avalon
    Armament: The Sword of Gwrnach
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    Likes: Hunting, Wood Carving
    Dislikes: Being Underestimated, Perversion
    Talents: Money Management, Swimming
    Natural Enemy: Merlin

    Parameters:
    STR: (D) END: (C) AGI: (D) MGI: (C) LCK: (B) NP: (C)
    Character:
    "That Pervy Mage once asked me why I bothered to continue training when I had already reached the peak of my abilities as a human. It's true that compared to the rest of them I am no more than a child swinging a stick. But the second I became a Knight my life was dedicated to the Way of the Sword, and even though Arthur's strength is unreachable, every time I take a small step closer to that impossible place it shows I still can grow further and my life wasn't wasted."

    As expected of a Knight, Kay is handsome and charming. But that belies his true nature as a stubborn and argumentative man with a sharp tongue. He will not hold back in criticising every single mistake his Master will make and will even berate them if they cannot learn since even a single error on the battlefield can get people killed. But it is only because he has such high expectations from them and if they do listen then his advice is completely honest and insightful. He is under no illusion about his lack of strength compared to other Heroic Spirits and much as in life he will absolutely not hesitate to fight dirty if he has to in order to keep his Master safe. He has a subconscious habit of standing to the right of his Master which stems from standing at Bedivere's right side to cover his lack of a right arm in battle.

    His favourite phrase is: "By the hand of my friend" which started as a jab at Bedivere only having one arm but became instinctual to say when making a promise.

    His wish upon the Grail? As expected of the King's foster-brother, he too wishes to go back and alter history for the better. Specifically to go back and tell his past self to make sure to find a wife as if the other Knights found out he died a bachelor then he'd never be able to live with the humiliation...


    Skills:
    Class Skills

    Magic Resistance - (C)
    A Skill granting protection against magical effects. Differing from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. At this Rank, Cancel spells with a chant below three verses. Cannot defend against magecraft on the level of High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals. Having some experience in the ways of Magic, Kay has a moderate defence against it - best demonstrated when on the top of Ystarfingun, Kay slew nine witches at once.

    Riding - (B)
    A Class Skill of Rider and Saber class Servants, denoting the ability to ride mounts and vehicles. Most vehicles and animals can be handled with above average skill, even vehicles that did not exist in the time period one was alive in, for they are no exception. However, cannot ride the likes of Phantasmal Species such as Monstrous Beasts. Kay rode his precious horse
    Gwyneu gwddf hir
    Gwyneu of the Long Neck
    even into the most dangerous battles.

    Personal Skills

    Eye of the Mind [True] - (B)
    A heightened capacity for observation, refined through training, discipline and experience. A danger-avoidance ability that utilizes the intelligence collected up to the current time as the basis in order to predict the opponent’s activity and change the current situation. At this Rank one is capable of calm analysis of battle conditions even when in danger and deduce an appropriate course of action after considering all possibilities to escape from a predicament. Kay's endless training and sparring with the other Round Table Knights forced him to have stay several steps ahead in battle in order to keep up with those superhumans.

    Giant Beast Hunting - (C)
    A Skill that denotes having abundant combat experience against giant enemy lifeforms. Coming from an age where giant monstroust beasts freely roamed the land and terrorised the populace, Kay has experience dealing with them such as single handedly killing both the monster cat Cath Palug as well as Gwrnach the Giant. He also assisted his young charge Goreu in killing Ysbaddaden the Giant King. As a result, his attacks gain a small damage increase against L-Size enemies for one turn.

    Mana Burst [Flames] - (C)
    The increase in performance caused by infusing one's weapons and body with Magical Energy and instantly expelling it, simply put, recreating the effect of a jet burst by expending large amounts of Magical Energy. An imitation of Artoria's Mana Burst but Kay's particular disposition imparts a flame effect. At this Rank Kay's sword becomes super heated which aids his ability to cut through materials as well as imparts minor burn damage to enemies that he strikes.

    Subversive Activities - (B)
    The talent to reduce the enemy forces in the preliminary stages before going into battle. An expert of traps. An expert of traps. With this skill at Rank B, it is possible to disable close to 30 percent of the enemy forces before they advance. Kay was the only one of the knights Artoria had complete faith in to be entrusted with the rear guard in their campaigns as his combined knowledge of both hunting and military tactics allowed him to predict enemy advances and set various traps to kill off the weaker and tire out any that survive.


    Noble Phantasm:

    Kay y dyn uchel
    Kay the Tall Man
    - (C) [Anti Unit]

    Kay's anger in battle was feared as he would grow in size to match the tallest tree in the forest and slay a great many foes in rage. However, this was nothing more than a clever trick he devised by overclocking his Mana Burst [Flame] so that instead of channeling it through his sword, it forms around him like a mist and expands larger and larger until it takes the shape of a giant version of Kay with the sheer heat creating a mirage that makes it look like Kay really had grown in size. The real Kay is kept safe in the centre of the behemoth and controls it as if it were his own body and with its flaming sword it can easily slice through sturdy trees as if they were butter. This technique is not without flaws, it requires a huge amount of energy to use and can only be deployed for five minutes and hitting that time limit risks Kay collapsing from exhaustion. Any Servant with Ocular Skills will likely be able to see through the illusion and decent Magic Resistance will allow their attacks to easily pass through the flames and target the vulnerable Kay.


    Lore:
    Before Sir Ector had met Merlin, he knew his children would be special as he had recieved a prophecy that his son's heart would be exceptionally stubborn and that no one would be able to brave fire or water like him. So when Merlin did entrust the five year old Artoria to him, he knew that the young Kay would be able to protect her growing up and told him to think of her as if she were truly his brother. And so they grew up together as any normal siblings would, often passing the time hunting wild beasts or sparring though it became quickly apparent that Artoria possessed an otherworldly talent that Kay did not and would win every time, though he would always critically point out the mistakes she made to hamper any sense of superiority she might gain.

    Eventually Merlin returned and revealed the existence of the Sword in the Stone and knowing that Kay couldn't resist seeking it out, suggested that he bring Artoria along to carry his equipment. That fateful day went as everyone knows, and upon returning home Sir Ector was overjoyed upon hearing the news that one of his children obtained the Sword and when he saw Kay carrying the large sword he congratulated him on being the future King. Kay looked at Artoria and saw her innocent eyes that weren't going to say anything. In that instance Kay felt immense shame for considering taking the credit and confesses the truth.

    Afterwards he journeys alongside Artoria (now called Arthur) and Merlin across the country in order to train the young knight into becoming the future King. Kay and Arthur would spar during the day and Merlin would teach Arthur magic in the evenings with Kay always watching. Feeling himself to be the dead weight of the group, Kay would often sneak out whilst the other two were asleep and would attempt to recreate Merlin's lessons on his own to gain power. Some time passed and they heard rumours of an invincible spearman to the north, Athur wished to test her mettle against him and so they headed out to meet him. Eventually they found him sat atop a pile of defeated mountain bandits - an incredibly handsome Knight with only one arm. Upon seeing Caliburn in Arthur's sheath he remarked "Ha! So the brat who thinks he'll be King wishes to challenge me, Bedivere? I accept!" But Merlin stepped in and said that his true opponent would be Kay, to everyone's shock. But Kay was undeterred and stood up to fight. The battle was tough, Bedivere's spear allowed him to keep Kay at bay and stop him from trying to attack Bedivere's armless right side. After ten minutes Kay was wheezing and down on one knee whilst Bedivere was untouched, Arthur declared she would take over but Kay stood up and charged straight at his opponent but it was useless and he was skewered through his abdomen...but then a miracle happened, Kay grabbed the spear with one arm and with the other swung down his sword which had steam coming off of it. Sparks flew as metal upon metal clashed and the spear gave way to be broken in two. Everyone was stunned into silence except Merlin who sarcastically applauded saying that Kay was the type of hot blooded musclehead who learns through fighting not theory. Kay embarrassed that his midnight magic lessons was known ordered his opponent to draw his sword but Bedivere held up his hand and said that his sword was only for slaying his enemies and that Kay's performance made him a rival instead. They shook hands and their eternal rivalry was born.

    Sensing that Kay had reached the summit of his power, Merlin stated that there would be little point in continuing to train with the group and so asked him to seek out a base of operations for them to return to after the training has been completed. Kay complies and parts ways from the group to travel alone. After determining that building a base from scratch would be too cost inefficient, he started searching old Roman encampments and eventually he stumbled across the abandoned military fortress of Caerleon and hired the local townspeople to help him refurbish it into a place fit for a King. Six months had passed and Arthur had arrived just as it was being finished, she had a noticibly different aura around her and was surrounded by several powerful Knights now. She informed Kay that she had made a group called "The Knights of the Round Table" and she would be honored if Kay would become one of their members. Kay immediately swore loyalty but Arthur stopped him partway through his alliegence and said "Halt brother, I'd rather God Himself strike me down than you of all people call me 'King'." Before they entered the threshold of the fortress-turned-castle, Kay asked Arthur what they should call it and after some time thinking its name was declared: "Camelot".

    And so Kay became the Seneschal of the Round Table, overseeing the work of the labourers as well as handling the finances of the Round Table. Life was good in those peaceful years but a problem plagued Kay's mind - the Round Table had gained many Knights such as Gawain and Lancelot who far outstripped Kay in power and rumours were starting to spread amongst the rank and file that Kay had only gotten a seat because he was the King's foster brother. This infuriated Kay's pride as a Knight but he also couldn't deny the possibility that it was the King's reasoning and so to cover up his insecurity he starts to tell tall tales about his exploits when he was younger. This earned him the title "Kay the Braggart" from his rival Bedivere after Kay had given out so many mocking titles to the other Knights.

    When Arthur's distant relative Culhwch comes to beseech him to help with the fourty impossible tasks given to him by Ysbaddaden the Giant King, Kay is is called upon for his hunting expertise to help with killing the demon boar "Twrch Trwyth" but relents when he hears of a monstrous cat "Cath Palug" wrecking havoc on the Isle of Anglesey. Kay swears to go handle the beast of the north by himself but Arthur is hesitant to let him go alone until Bedivere points out that Kay's so stubborn that he won't die "except for an act of God Himself". And so Kay mounts his trusty horse Gwyneu and sets out for Anglesey. After several days of tracking the monstrous cat, he lures it into a clearing filled to the brim with hidden traps and goads it into attacking - "If it's dinner you're after, I'll feed you a length of iron!" Even with all the preparation, Kay knew he was in for a long fight and after nine days and nine nights he finally fell the monstrous beast. Meeting back up with the other Knights, Kay throws the severed paw of the beast at his King's feet proving his worth and in turn Arthur smirks and declares him a longer title of "Kay the Beloved Braggart who makes his tales a Reality" and the Knights drank to their fullest that night.

    After assisting Arthur in defeating the forces of Lucius Tiberius, they heard the fateful news of Mordred's insurrection and they rushed back to Britain. But upon disembarking upon the shores, Kay announced that it would be too dangerous for Arthur to take on Mordred's forces without Avalon and so he parted ways with the group and headed to Cornwall to track down the lake that Morgan Le Fay had supposedly thrown it into. He discovered the location but there was a problem - a ring of hellfire manifested upon approaching the lake and burned anyone who dared to draw near and within the water was countless traps and monstrous nature spirits left to guard the scabbard. "Is this the prophecy Father spoke about? Hmph, Fate is a fickle mistress but I cannot deny her..." Warning his men to stay back, Kay charged at the lake and dived through the fire and into the water. An hour passed before the hellfire suddenly died down and Kay emerged from the lake - with holes in his body large enough that you could see the lake behind him through them and half of his handsome face was missing... but the scabbard victoriously in hand. A messanger had arrived from Camlann that announced the death of both Mordred and Arthur but Kay was undettered and took his men to a nearby cave and promised them to seal both him and Avalon in a tomb to protect the scabbard from those unworthy until their Once and Future King returned to Earth and would be in need of it again. And so years passed and then decades and then centuries with the hidden tomb left undisturbed until one day strange looking foreigners by the name of "Einzbern" arrived to excate the tomb in the name of archaeology...


    Creator's Notes:
    I feel like this dude has been done to death already but here's my take on him anyway. I did make an effort to acknowledge the sparse canon material we've gotten on him over the years, whilst also adding in a few elements from his earlier Welsh legends as Cai to fill out the character a bit. I remember someone once compared Kay to Krillin and I thought about how everyone loves Krillin/Yamcha because they're the underdogs so I incorporated that into the Sheet so that this relatively ordinary man could keep with these superhumans. The main model for him was Brain Unglaus from Overlord and one of Kay's quotes is based on what Brain said about trying to fight an unbeatable vampire. I may have gone a bit too far and made him into Dark Knight Kayman...I wonder if he could beat Saber with enough prep time (lol). As for his Noble Phantasm, I spent so long wracking my brains over what to give him. Eventually I came up with the idea of reformatting Kay's ability to become a giant by borrowing the "Hyper Mode" from Aura Battler Dunbine where the Battler's would have their Auras' physically manifest and grow into a giant size version of themselves (think Susanoo from Naruto) which would allow them to be cutting down entire armies.

    Bit of an aside, but I don't really care for how similar Kay looks to Gawain and Arthur. Hopefully when he (ineveitably) appears in F/GO then he'll have a more distinct appearance.


    As usual all comments and criticisms are welcome.

    It's one evil per Beast. There's been no overlapping so far, and given how intimately each Beast's concept and powers are tied to the evil it represents it wouldn't make much sense for there to be any IMO.

    As far as I know a Beast's number is arbitrary and doesn't have any particular association with the human evil it represents.

    Harpe was, as I understand, wielded by Zeus against him so that's right out, and Typhonomachy is too event-like to qualify properly.
    Personally I would've given Typhon Zeus's sinews as his Noble Phantasm. He could lash them about like a particularly gross variety of razor floss, charge them with lightning to shock enemies, and even wrap them around his fists like knuckle dusters to boost striking power. But that's kind of a weird idea, and I fully understand and respect your decision to keep Typhon NP-less.

    How about something connected to the Pope calling her ''The Catholic''. ability to create a territory called ''The kingdom of God'' which forcefully expels all impurity and corruption, and shatter's the enemy willpower by showing them the Light of God- DEUS VULT INTENSIFIES.
    Does that sound glorious enough?

    That sounds more or less like one of the ideas I had, making her give non-Christians a continuous rank-down to parameters and stuff like that within her territory. Perhaps I could incorporate it to her territory-expanding arrows

    Kay: Pretty cool sheet all around. Personality is well-written, and I like the comparison/contrast with Bedivere as another "ordinary human" of the Round Table. I do have one question though. Is Kay limited in applying Mana Burst (Flames) to his sword, or can he channel it through his body too, since it's presumably based on the anecdote where he could light a campfire with his bare hands?

    Thanks, and no it wouldn't be limited to just his sword. Kay being the dirty fighter that he is I could see him grabbing the opponent's weapon and making it super hot so they drop it.

    I was half tempted to make him into an Assassin Class based on how several of his feats were done through trickery such as pretending to be a sword polisher to get into a giant's castle and offers to polish his sword and whilst he's doing it his men are going around and stealth killing all the giants allies in the castle before Kay then uses the polished sword to behead the giant and claim the sword for himself.

    Thanks for clarifying. I wrote up an Assassin Kay too, though frankly the justification wasn't as well thought-out as yours and was more because I couldn't think of any more fitting NP for a different Class.
