    As for making her actually!Plotina, that was something I considered, but rejected the idea for much the same reason as you brought up.

    From one subject to another, I was reading my big ol' list of sheets and started to consider which ones were my favourites.
    That got me curious about the rest of you, so: Which of your Servant sheets are your personal favourites?
    I suppose the question might be expanded to different categories (most interesting, best in terms of mechanics, best personality...) if you can't decide on a single one.
    I've marked all my faves that I've done in green on my servant master post. But ones that I really liked and seemed to go down with everybody in terms of personality and mechanics would be my three main Uther's (Lily, Berserker and Caster Alter) and Æthelflæd who got the praised comment "if she was canon, there would be a lot of porn about her"

    Another one of mine that stick's out to me is my second version of Elizabeth Tudor

    True. I do think any hero with a strong conflict between their outward behavior and inner feelings would be a good match.

    One supposes that since Pseudo-Servants are often vehicles for stuff that couldn't manifest in a regular fashion, divine entities should also be considered for the Tokiomi Pseudo-Servant. If we're working from that, I suppose Pluto or Lucifer might go for a 'man of wealth and taste' like Tokiomi is. The latter's even got a connection with fire.

    Pluto or Hades I get because there's the whole outward cruelty vs inner kindness thing, but Lucifer is a little too prideful. As for other divine entities, what about Anu, since the Ishtar Pseudo-Servant possessed Rin, why not have Tokiomi and Ishtar's father pair up?

    Changing the topic a little, we can agree that Kunti would be a fitting candidate for an Aoi Pseudo-Servant, right? Both had the talent to, in some way or another, give birth to super-babies

    Yeah, and both were passive actors in their own lives. Draupadi would be equally good for that purpose IMO.

    A silly plotbunny.

    Think carefully before rolling her gacha.

    Servant:
    Saver
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    True Name: Hosokawa Gracia



    Parameters:
    Strength: E
    Endurance: E
    Agility: D
    Mana: D
    Luck: A
    Noble Phantasm: EX

    Background:
    Spoiler:
    Born Hosokawa Tama, the woman who would later be christened Hosokawa Gracia was the daughter of Akechi Mitsuhide, the general who would go on to betray his lord Oda Nobunaga at Honnou-ji. Early in her life, Tama was wed to a samurai, Hosokawa Tadaoki, a retainer of Nobunaga. Their marriage had been difficult - Tadaoki was a jealous, violent man and the couple lived an uneasy, quarrelsome but politically advantageous life together on Tadaoki’s bestowed land.

    On one occasion, he cut down a vassal for merely looking too long at his teenage wife, and cleaned the blood off his blade on her kimono sleeve. In response to this ogreish behavior, rather than yell or argue, Tama reportedly wore the bloodsoaked kimono for almost a week until Tadaoki finally begrudgingly relented and apologized.

    However, with Mitsuhide’s betrayal, Tama suddenly became little more than a traitor’s daughter, her reputation and value in tatters. Her husband stayed loyal, refusing to help Mitsuhide and assisting in his defeat, but rather than divorce his beautiful young wife, he had her cloistered and confined in the clan’s mansion in Hosokawa, forbidden to leave. Her fetters tightened, Tama became an avid reader, fluent in Latin and Portuguese, ultimately becoming a follower of Christianity through smuggled books brought to her by her maidservants and overheard conversations between her husband and a Christian friend.

    By far her favorite book was a treatise by one Thomas à Kempis, the Imitation of Christ, a Latin handbook arguing that devotion was best achieved not by imitating Christ actively, but by withdrawing from the world and emphasizing one’s internal, spiritual life - that an undisturbed conscience and enlightenment lie not in the affairs of the world, but in solitude and silence, a perspective Gracia had lacked her entire life as a political tool for marriage. Enamored with the controversial foreign religion, she would sneak out to visit the local church in Osawa, and upon discovering Christianity was to be banned by Toyotomi, she resolved to become baptized immediately, newly christened “Hosokawa Gracia”.

    Following a reversal in her husband’s fortunes when Toyotomi died and Japan again became mired in unstable conflict, Gracia’s estate was among those under siege by the forces of Ishida Mitsunari, who led a large army to Osaka with the aim of taking hostage the family members of Hideyoshi’s generals to secure their allegiance.

    ...Or that was the plan. Rather than have their lord’s wife be taken hostage, Tadaoki’s vassals executed her, then themselves, setting fire to the Hosokawa mansion in the process and burning it to the ground. Stories differ on the cause - some say Tadaoki had instructed his vassals to do so against Gracia’s wishes while some state Gracia herself ordered her own execution to preserve her family’s honor, a charge that the Jesuits in Osaka denied vehemently, having previously counseled her that suicide would be a grave sin.

    Some even stated that Gracia anticipated her own demise, and merely prayed in peaceful contemplation, waiting for the end and serenely unconcerned for her own fate. Whatever the reason, Gracia’s sacrifice sparked a wave of outrage, forcing Ishida to abandon his plan and marshalling others against him.

    An irregular Saver who neither led nor personally delivered salvation to others. In death, she won the faith and support of many, indirectly helping to usher in the Tokugawa shogunate and becoming known as a paragon of Christian values in Japan. As an improper Saver, she is quick to acknowledge she was merely an enthusiastic acolyte who never reached the truth of mankind’s salvation, but this time...


    Personality:
    Spoiler:
    Pleasant and well-mannered, Saver is gentle and disarming, bringing to mind a soft-spoken housewife more than a would-be saint or savior of mankind. She is humble, earnestly admitting to her inexperience and inadequacies, acknowledging that she accomplished little in life beyond reading and fostering a rich internal life. Friends, hobbies, vacations, these things were never an option for her, and she acknowledges such with a relaxed smile that implicitly encourages others to tell her all about them.

    While she rarely proselytizes, she enjoys discussing theology and expressing her views on the subject, one of the few things she read enough to speak at great length on. In most other topics, she is quiet, letting others control the flow of conversation. Attentive, graceful, and charismatic, while never projecting her own thoughts or preferences on others, Saver is the very definition of a non-judgmental “great listener.”

    While an elegant and cultured young woman, Saver can be surprisingly stubborn and petulant at times, refusing to budge from a position when her mind is made up, even to the point of absurdity or great personal inconvenience, rejecting any counsel or alternatives.


    Class Abilities:
    Counter Hero
    Rank: C
    A skill that unconditionally reduces the parameters of any hero encountered. At this rank, it reduces all of the opponent’s parameters by one rank. This skill is weaker against anti-heroes, reducing only their highest three parameters by one rank.

    Charisma
    Rank: 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. This rank is sufficient to lead or influence a nation. The morale and loyalty of military forces Saver supports are extremely high.

    Personal Skills:
    Protection of the Faith
    Rank: A+++
    A Skill possessed only by those who have sacrificed themselves for a religious view. Despite being a form of divine protection, it is not a blessing from a higher existence. It is the absoluteness of one’s body and mind that was born from their beliefs. But if it is too high, it causes abnormalities in the personality. As an avid follower of Kempis’ Imitation of Christ, Saver holds her body and mind firm against intrusion and outside forces, relying on the blessed sacraments or the Lord.

    Single-Mindedness
    Rank: B
    The ability to immerse oneself in something, exhibiting a superhuman degree of focus. In Gracia’s case, this skill manifests in prayer, reading, or when lost in thought, permitting Saver to focus so completely on the object of her thoughts that her mana consumption becomes nearly zero.

    Noble Phantasm(s):
    Salvator Mundi - A World of Salvation and Happiness in Oneself
    Rank: EX
    Type: Anti-Unit (Self)
    A Noble Phantasm crystallizing the faith of Hosokawa Gracia, a woman whose virtue and willingness to risk great danger to adopt the Christian faith made her a candidate for canonization despite never achieving a single notable feat or accomplishment of merit outside of her own death by external forces. Lacking a basis for any active Noble Phantasm, Saver manifested instead with her faith and wishes refined into a passive Noble Phantasm that embraces her temporary life as a Servant.

    Salvator Mundi is the embodiment of Gracia's belief in Christianity, her vision that salvation lay in the next world, and that the divine may be reached through internal reflection. In effect, upon the destruction of Saver's spiritual core, a deceptively simple blessing is enacted - inscribing upon her soul the promise that in death, she will achieve salvation and find happiness, and that a perfect world awaits. As a Heroic Spirit, in most cases, Saver will simply return to the throne, the promise unspent.

    ...However.

    Should her soul be contained somewhere, stopped from returning to the Throne - for example, becoming part of a Grail or somehow improbably being resummoned with her memories intact...

    Then her dearest wish may come true.

    Spoiler:
    A D V E N T B E A S T
    IV / R
    T H E L A N D O F C O C K A I G N E


    Servant: Beast IV-R
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    True Name: Hosokawa Gracia



    Parameters:
    Strength: E
    Endurance: EX
    Agility: C
    Mana: A++
    Luck: B
    Noble Phantasm: --

    Background:
    An existence born of Hosokawa Gracia's dearest held wish, the Beast of Contentment is the world she prayed to be born in given life - a world containing no one else, peacefully devoid of conflict, dissent, and longing. A false savior that desires to bring happiness to all by elimination of all points of comparison, leaving only herself.

    Differing from the Beast of Comparison, the heart that compares itself to others and vainly measures without result, the Beast of Contentment never looks outside itself in the first place, humbly concluding that nothing else is needed. As a Beast, her ideology is simple, the logic of a self-centered child who endured the attention of others and found deliverance in the promise of salvation outside this world.

    Seven billion humans are unnecessary. To give salvation, she will make one blissfully happy.

    Personality:
    Now unleashed and on full display for what it always was, Hosokawa Gracia's extreme self-love and narcissism run unchecked. While she never truly paid attention to the views of others, passively allowing them to flow over her without acceptance or recognition, now she actively acts to eliminate everything that irritates her - everything that is not her - from her sight.

    Beast IV-R has no interest in conversation, other than contently expressing her own thoughts, and finds it difficult if not impossible to regard others as 'human' or even 'things that exist.' If forced to actually acknowledge the existence of others, her calm gives way to a petulant, violent fury, irrationally attempting to tear it apart and scatter its remains, and pacifying as soon as she's again ignorant to its presence.

    Class Abilities:
    Independent Manifestation
    Rank: B
    A skill that permits unsupported manifestation into reality. At Rank B, this Skill is a declaration of the holder’s presence across all of space-time, and thereby grants immunity against existential threats by way of time paradox or the instantaneous imposition of death.

    Authority of the Beast
    Rank: A
    An Anti-Human Skill that enhances the skillholder's capacity to harm existences that are classified as Humans.

    Personal Skills:
    Nega-Recognition
    Rank: EX
    The special trait of a Beast who sought to bring salvation to the world by absolutely denying the world outside herself. By virtue of absolute denial that history or culture exists outside her own mind, Beast IV-R unconditionally reduces the parameters of Heroic Spirits from other histories by three ranks, and skills that would directly affect the Beast are ineffective and subject to conceptual rejection. A child's belief that "nothing can hurt me if I don't look", taken to its ultimate conclusion.

    World Erosion
    Rank: EX
    A skill unreasonably elevated from Civilization Erosion, this is a subconsciously active skill inherent to the Beast of Contentment. Anything in Beast IV-R's presence is subject to continuous erasure as she shrinks the world around her, unmaking the very fabric of human history around her. Not a true bounded field, but the destruction of anything that could constitute a bounded field, up to and including the common sense of mankind. Until Hosokawa Gracia is alone, until she has been left with only herself, this skill will perpetually impose the reduction of the world, tearing away at people, places, and ideas.

    Protection of the Faith
    Rank: A+++
    A Skill possessed only by those who have sacrificed themselves for a religious view. Despite being a form of divine protection, it is not a blessing from a higher existence. It is the absoluteness of one’s body and mind that was born from their beliefs. But if it is too high, it causes abnormalities in the personality. An obsession with solitude and serenity introduced by a well-intentioned book, held close and fostered until it has warped the very nature of her soul, hardening it against any intrusion.

    Disengage
    Rank: A+++
    The ability to withdraw from the battlefield in the midst of combat or reset the battle conditions. As long as she is not definitively, entirely defeated, the world that is Hosokawa Gracia still exists, and damage to her form is completely undone as soon as battle is ended, shedding even conceptual interference and the greatest of curses.

    Noble Phantasm(s):
    [Her only Noble Phantasm having already been expended, Beast IV-R has nothing that may be regarded as a Noble Phantasm.]

    Jesus, that is one hell of a sheet. I could not have imagined Gracia interpreted that way, as a seemingly harmless Saver transformed into one of the most terrifying Beast concepts I've ever seen.

    Simply amazing. I didn't expect that twist.

    Contentment as the opposite to Primate Murder's Comparison was very well-done. It reminds me of the Reason of Musubi in SMT: Nocturne.

    I'm a bit unsatisfied with how little info is given on her Class Skills, but that's just a personal nitpick of mine since I usually justify them even though the canon sheets don't even bother to do that.

    I would say "where's the twisted love for humanity that characterizes all Beasts", but her mentality is essentially the same as Kiara's "I'm the only true human that matters hurr durr" so it works. In fact, it makes me think that I forced on my previous Beast sheets the assumption that their twisted love for humanity had to be straightforward.

    I also love the fact that she is just a complete nobody who turned into an Evil of Man.

    It's great. The world's greatest coward who cares for no one, listens to no one, understands no one - someone who feels so safe and content in her own personal bubble that she doesn't even bother to acknowledge anything that is out of her comfort zone. She stands at the center of her own world and anything outside of it might as well not exist.
