    "Oh? It appears we have been summoned, Manuela."
    "(I want to kill them, Manuel. Can we kill them, Manuel?)"
    "Now now, I understand how you feel, but bear with it. If we let our Master live, we can kill a lot more. How about it?"
    "(Servants?)"
    "Indeed. Not only the common rabble, but heroes of legend as well. Isn't it grand, Manuela?"
    "(Yes... yes! Okay, let's do this, Manuel! Rip, tear, slaughter and annihilate!)"
    "Yes, Manuela. This hunt will be a pleasant one."


    Class: Berserker

    True Name: Manuel/Manuela Blanco Romasanta

    Alignment: Chaotic Evil

    Parameters:

    Strength: D/B
    Endurance: E/B
    Agility: E/B
    Mana: D/C
    Luck: E/D
    Noble Phantasm: C


    Skills

    Class Skills:

    Mad Enhancement: EX
    A Skill that raises basic parameters and strengthens a Servant's physical abilities in exchange of hindering their mental capacities and/or sense of reason. At this level, all parameters receive a boost. However, this is an unique case since the true owner of this Skill is only one half of the Servant: it only empowers the shadow side of Berserker, always accompanying the physical side - known as Manuel - as an umbral ghostly wolf that introduces herself as Manuela. Manuel is extremely weak, but in exchange his other self possesses high parameters. Manuela is capable of speech but essentially communicates only with her other self: the only matters she concerns herself with are him and the next victims she will be free to rip apart. Shivering with anticipation for the next kill, she can't be reasoned with as one cannot comprehend a logic that they have never experienced. The rank EX is exceptionally suited to a being that never recovered from madness and was corrupted by it for almost 50 years, from childhood to death.

    Personal Skills:

    Mental Pollution: C

    A Skill indicating a distorted mentality that makes it possible for one to shut out any Mental Interference Thaumaturgy. However, at the same time, it becomes impossible for one to come to a mutual understanding with individuals who do not possess an equivalent rank of Mental Pollution. In this case, the Skill is owned only by the physical side - Manuel. He is completely unable to feel compassion or regret, no matter what sort of cruelty is forced upon the victims he murders with Manuela. He is akin to a beast wearing the skin of a polite man: differently from Manuela - who is unable to restrain her murderous hunger - he wishes to enjoy the planning and preparations before the murder as much as possible. His identity and psyche having been fractured, he fills the gaps by treating the hunt like a game. To him, however, it is also an honest duty necessary to soothe Manuela's tortured soul.

    Murderer of the Lunar Night: A
    A Skill associated with the Servant's nature as a serial killer rather than as an assassin, which permits a pre-emptive strike against all opponents. It is owned by both sides of Berserker. It always succeeds during a full moon, but the probability rises and decreases in accordance to the lunar phases: as the new moon approaches, the chances are exceedingly low. It's an ability born from Berserker's modus operandi to always strike at night when the moon was present, as well as their association with werewolves.

    Shapeshift: B-
    A Skill that refers to both borrowing bodies and changing appearance. In this case, in only applies to the shadow side of Berserker - Manuela. Her body is like a living shadow, malleable and untouchable by normal means. She can change from her default form of a wolf to several other animals, but it is limited to creatures that are commonly thought of as "predators" or "hunters". By devouring humans she can also gain access to their appearance, but it's basically worthless as the body composition will always remain unnatural-looking as shadowy and black. Moreover, due to her ego being too strong to properly simulate the original owner's personality, the Skill's usefulness is restricted to combat. Additionally, the Magical Energy obtainable from consumption of souls is significantly greater than normal due to Berserker having never wasted a single part of their victims' corpses, even producing soap with the fat.



    Noble Phantasm


    El Hombre Lobo de Allariz: Full Moon Encirclement
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Rank: C


    The crystallization of both Berserker's infamous identity as the first documented serial killer in Spain as well as the method they used to overwhelm and devour their victims.

    Berserker is - technically speaking - a single individual, but their ego split when they were six years old. As a result, two entities that can't be defined as separate have manifested as a Servant. Their personalities mesh well despite the presence of differences that would normally make them clash and this flawless synchronization is what prevents them from developing an ego of their own.

    Manuel is the physical side of Berserker that materializes as a short male in his thirties, but he possesses traits that mold his appearance into that of a "manly girl".

    Manuela is the shadow side of Berserker, usually residing within Manuel - she takes the form of a huge wolf with glowing eyes whose body composition resembles black smoke, allowing her to freely change shape and sneak around easily.

    Combat-wise, Manuel is nearly worthless as a Servant, so Manuela takes the role of fighter. She changes her shape to that of a monster almost resembling a werewolf, but with limbs bent at odd angles. Her movements are quick and random, relying completely on instinct alone as she dashes around and disorients her opponent by frequently changing form and striking when she sees an opportunity. Her shadow body makes it hard for the foe to deal damage with physical attacks as she can dissipate before the hit lands. She can fight at long range by extending her arms and legs, using them like whips or to extend the reach of her claws.

    Logic dictates that defeating Manuel would spell Manuela's demise as well since they share the same class container, but their nature is different. There are Servants that consist of two individuals dependent on each other, but Berserker is only one: even if two entities exist, the World does not sees them as separate. If either Manuel or Manuela is slain, they will recover as long as Magical Energy can be provided. To end them once and for all, both must die within a time limit or they should be forced to fight until their Magical Energy is depleted.

    Their Noble Phantasm is "El Hombre Lobo de Allariz: Full Moon Encirclement". To be deployed, it requires three conditions:


    • The moon must be visible
    • The location must be far from civilization
    • The target must have been injured by Berserker at least once


    If all conditions are met, hundreds of black tendrils with claws materialize in a circular area surrounding the target, tracing a spiral pattern as they quickly close in to grab their legs and decrease their mobility as much as possible. At the same time, two other wolves similar to Manuela appear - they are Antonio and Don Genaro, fellow "werewolves" that allegedly befriended Berserker during one of their hunts. They are not as powerful as Manuela, but their coordination is flawless and the paralyzed target is helpless as the three of them rush in to slash, bite and pierce.

    Until the Noble Phantasm has reached its conclusion - when Manuela, Antonio and Don Genaro have entered the circular area drawn by the black tendrils - the target is cursed so that he is physically unable to leave. Whether the Servant has been immobilized by the hundred of tendrils or is being chased by them, somehow surviving unscathed a simultaneous assault coming from all angles would be a feat befitting only a Top Servant.

    Despite her impressive parameters for a modern Servant, Manuel follows a hit-and-run strategy in which Manuela keeps harassing the opponent to lure them in a forest or abandoned area. She is not a match for Heroic Spirits who wielded legendary weapons or display high levels of Mystery, so relying on this Noble Phantasm that overwhelms the enemy with numbers is the core of their fighting style.



    Lore and Background

    In Spain, they are infamous as the nation's first documented serial killer with a body count in the hundreds, but they were found guilty for only nine victims.

    Manuela Blanco Romasanta, the only daughter of a rich family that, despite not boasting an ancient lineage or famous feats, prided itself for blindly following outdated traditions. For this very reason, the firstborn being a girl was not acceptable. The devotion of the Romasanta went beyond obsession and was almost like a cult: they were aware of magecraft despite not being magi themselves, so they hired one to forcibly alter Manuela's body and reverse her gender.

    If it was only a matter of changing her gender, it could be solved with relative ease. However, as she was already six years old, her identity as a "girl" had began to establish itself. The friction between her male body and female soul would destroy her mind within a few weeks, so the Romasanta promptly accepted an outrageous proposition: violate Manuela's soul and tamper with her mind - and perception of herself - as well.

    Her last sight being the full moon she admired before being knocked out, Manuela became Manuel. At the same time, her ego was fractured. She could have still thought of herself as Manuela even if her body changed, but her mind had been forcibly reconfigurated: she kept using male pronouns, she began to hate the dolls she always played with, her body language became unfamiliar and uncomfortable.

    Manuela's personality survived the ordeal and continued to exist deep within the newly created Manuel. Rather than a being that splintered from the original, it was more accurate to call him a "male model" that still followed the same principles. He grew conflicted, always suspecting that he was missing something that made him whole: he sometimes felt more at home with the girls or enjoyed activities that caused boys of his age to mock him.

    This feeling persisted until, one day, he felt irrational hatred towards a middle-aged woman - a woman whose name was Manuela.

    Upon hearing her name, he reached his limit. The exiled Manuela, who had been despairing and growing mad after being left in the deepest corners of her own body with her consciousness still intact, broke out of her prison. Loosely shaped like a black humanoid, she punched and kicked the old woman who shared her name to death. She briefly bared her fangs at her other self yet Manuel, instead of panicking, calmly knelt beside her and suggested that she should kill the old woman's daughter Petra as well to cover her... no, their tracks.

    Manuel finally came to an epiphany. Discovering Manuela's existence filled the sense of emptiness he had endured for almost twenty years. Manuela, who had not interacted with anyone for an equal amount of time, found peace and joy through her freedom and coexistence with her other self who understood her perfectly.

    Manuel became a salesman and gladly participated in Manuela's murders. Her rage, bitterness, madness, resentment, hate - the explosive animosity that she couldn't express during her imprisonment was released every time she saw the full moon that reminded her of the very same night in which she had split and Manuel had been born. They targeted travellers who sought their help for directions and Manuel politely accompanied them to secluded spots such as forests before Manuela took her time to violently butcher them.

    They never held back, never stopped and never regretted their crimes. Eventually, rumors began to spread of a werewolf - "The Werewolf of Allariz" - that devoured careless travellers when the full moon was out and Manuela's form changed accordingly from what was vaguely a humanoid to a large wolf-like beast.

    They mainly killed women who reminded Manuela of "what she had lost": it was resentment towards those who had the opportunity to lead a joyous life as well as anger towards the perpretators, so they travelled to their hometown Reguiero and annihilated the entire Romasanta family.

    They were eventually caught by a group of magi, albeit with great difficulty, and sentenced to death. The sentence was delayed as a French mage wished to analyse Manuel's body and confirm through what sort of ability he could manifest an alternate personality despite having supposedly no magus ancestry.

    Was it their hidden potential as a mage or an unique power that manifested due to their circumstances? No answer was determined and after several experiments that left both Manuel and Manuela weakened, they were sent to a prison where they died from the after-effects.



    Personality

    Their personalities have synchronized to the extent that they are unable to really disagree on anything. They are still able to distinguish each other as "he" and "she", but it is not uncommon for one or the other to occasionally use "we" at random.

    Manuel is generally the one tasked with the decision-making, but even if Manuela were to wish for something completely different, they would be capable of determining a solution that will definitely satisfy both parties. Rather than a compromise, it's more correct to state that just one of them being happy brings joy to the other as well. Despite being an evil Anti-Hero that can't healthily interact with regular people, this magnificent bond that eclipses even the intimacy between twins is their only trait that can be called beautiful.

    ---

    Manuel is distorted, but rather than his disorder resulting from Mental Pollution, it is the catalyst. Unable to feel remorse or empathy, he lacks the ability to understand and feel for most people apart from his other self. Cunning and manipulative, he could be considered "the mind" of the Werewolf of Allariz: instead of finding joy in the act of killing, he is greatly pleased by the hunt itself. Wearing an almost imperceptible smirk as he tends to the preliminary stages that precede the murder, the thought of cornering their target excites him.

    If summoned in the modern era, he would quickly adapt by donning fashionable clothes and acting like any regular man of the era. Blending into society brings him delight as he thinks about how many people do not expect death from such an unsassuming individual. He would get along well with Servants afflicted by a condition similar to the one he has suffered and it is possible to go as far as stating that it's the only show of empathy he is capable of demonstrating towards anyone other than his other self.

    Polite and a gentleman, his small stature and feminine appearance don't hinder his ability to be quite convincing and successfully manipulative. He isn't the type of sadist who would betray others for no reason at all, but only truly unfavourable circumstances would prompt treason. However, a Master who has earned a little bit of Berserker's appreciation by accepting them would deserve some modicum of loyalty as well - despite Berserker's nature as a psychotic serial killer, they are actually quite trustworthy as a Servant of a Master they have grown attached to.

    ---

    Manuela's behaviour is animalistic, but her thought process is that of a human. Having lost control of her own body at the age of six, she never recovered from this experience and her intellect is still stuck at the level of a child's: even in life, after decades of serial killing, she never matured. Her combat abilities are purely fueled by instinct and - if she weren't driven by an endless source of animosity and resentment - it's likely that she would just act like any other girl of her age. The act of killing and butchering is - simply put - just a tantrum.

    She finds solace in being powerful, so she would react to defeat badly: blaming others, breaking stuff and finally sulking by slithering back to Manuel's body. She has no patience at all and - fueled by her exceptional rank in Mad Enhancement - she has lost whatever little restrictions reined her in when she was alive. If it weren't for Manuel smoothly convincing her of the drawbacks, she would usually kill their Master immediately after being summoned. Her wild attitude can be regulated only by Manuel: reasoning with her is meaningless, so discussing with him is the only option.

    The sight of happy people angers her, but she can tell when someone is fundamentally broken inside. As such, when it comes to compatibility and acceptance from her part, it's either great or null. A Master who has lost their common sense, one who shares Berserker's delight in killing or those who are distorted - such are those she is willing to "befriend". Of course, actually approving of Berserker is another matter entirely.

    ---

    Their condition of hating others and loving only themselves was born due to no one having saved them or understood them in life. They are already far too gone for redemption or salvation, but someone that still accepts them despite all they have done and still do would at least be worthy of their gratitude and loyalty.



    Relationships

    Jack the Ripper:
    "These are quite the unusual ones. Not at all like other Servants, are they?"
    "(Yes. Many, screaming and weeping and cursing... can we go say hello, Manuel?)"
    "Oh my, we like them?"
    "(... J-just a little.)"
    "Of course, of course. I do too, Manuela."

    Anne Bonny & Mary Read:
    "It seems we aren't so unique after all, Manuela."
    "(Stupid Manuel.)"
    "Mmm... you are correct, I spoke thoughtlessly."
    (Our bond, unbreakable. Not separate, Manuel and Manuela, we are one.)


    Henry Jekyll & Hyde:
    "Pleased to make your acquaintance. Do you want to say hello, Manuela?"
    "(No.)"
    "Do forgive her, Don Hyde. Mmm? Oh my, we are afraid you misunderstood. We don't care at all about you, Jekyll."

    Hundred-Faces Hassan:
    "What a staggering number. We are honestly impressed."
    (Organized, coordination, no chaos and what a mess. Super-specialized they are.)
    "They willingly ripped their own ego apart. You must be quite the masochist, Don Assassin."
    (Idiocy, makes me angry. At least, one of them, we wanna kill.)

    Stheno and Euryale:
    "How about them, Manuela? They do not disappoint, do they?"
    "(... fine.)
    "Oh? And yet, they are pleasing to the eye as well."
    "(Look, don't, Manuel!)"
    "Ahahah! Don't fret, Manuela, you are the most charming of all."

    Yeah. The end result for Manuel/Manuela is much more pleasing for me as well. I feel like I did a decent job with Wong Fei-Hung, but he was a little too standard.

    Thoughts on this one?

    I'm not good at giving feedback, I'm never quite sure what to say, outside of 'I like it' or 'I don't like it'.

    I always like reading sheets about people I'd never heard of before, tho. You also managed to do a genderbend that I didn't hate, so good on you for that.

    "I am an Englishman, and have subsequently drawn the greatest prize in the lottery of life."



    Class: Archer

    STR: D++
    END: E
    AGI: C
    MGI: D
    LCK: B

    Class Skills

    Independent Action (C+): Can survive 24 hours without a Master. Proper use of skills and Noble Phantasms can greatly extend this
    time, however. Archer survived half a world away from home with meticulous management of his resources and relationships.

    Magic Resistance (E): Archer's class only grants him a token damage reduction against magic.

    Personal Skills

    Investment (A): A skill similar to Conceptual Improvement and one that comprises Golden Rule. It is the ability to allocate resources
    for future benefits, whether it be with money, goods, prana, or even metaphorical fortune. As a banker, businessman and politician,
    Archer's economic skills made him one of the wealthiest men in the world. Whatever he puts his effort into, he can almost always expect
    to turn a profit, so to speak, with greater risk offering greater reward. A talent for spending money to make money that has expanded.
    Archer made his mark on South Africa by pulling numerous mining, oil drilling and agricultural ventures from the grip of depression and
    establishing companies and corporations that still operate in the present day, particularly De Beers, the behemoth of the diamond industry.

    Colonialist (EX): Archer is an ardent believer in British imperialism, and the supremacy of the Anglo-Saxons. This belief is exemplified
    in his wish to create a secret society whose mission would be to bring the entire world under British rule, in order to unite all peoples,
    to make war obsolete and to promote the best interests of humanity. To that end, Archer receives a boost to all parameters against those
    who are "subjects of Britain", and over time will subsume the area around him as "Britain", giving him a further fame boost while denying
    it to his enemies. Many in the modern day condemn him as a racist, though Archer claims that his time in Africa gave him the inspiration
    to elevate the native people of Africa to his level, naturally through the use of the superior British systems and institutions.

    Item Construction (C+): With the help of his Noble Phantasm, Archer can manufacture implements of war. While he does not have any magical
    skill, he can still bring to bear the considerable engineering and manufacturing talents of his company to make ammunition, whether it be
    mundane or specialized, armored vehicles and other defenses.

    Equipment: Though he would prefer to avoid violence, Archer has three firearms at his disposal. The first is a Lee-Metford .303 bolt-action
    rifle, which was standard issue for the British army during his life. The second is a machine gun known as the Maxim gun, first used by Archer
    in wars against Ndebele warriors. It has been called "the weapon most associated with the British imperial conquest", and was powerful enough
    that only four of these guns mowed down an army of 5,000. The third gun is a one-of-a-kind Howitzer cannon called the "Long Cecil", able to
    fire 104 mm shells at a range of up to seven kilometers. All of his weapons are encrusted with numerous diamonds.

    Noble Phantasms

    Rhodes Colossus~Striding From Cape Town to Cairo (B, Anti-Country)

    A form that Archer can assume based off a pun made in an editorial cartoon about him, depciting him as a giant standing over all of Africa.
    The image is used to illustrate the Scramble for Africa and colonialism. In his hands, Archer is seen holding a telegraph line that extends from
    Cape Town to Cairo; this has since become a metaphor for the broader British domination of Africa. This Noble Phantasm has three aspects;
    first is Archer's ability to grow to massive size, greatly increasing his strength and the destructive power of his weapons. The second is the
    manifestation of the telegraph line as a seemingly infinitely long, electrified whip, capable of inflicting gouging cuts and burns. The third,
    and least obvious is a conceptual ability for Archer to use the telegraph line in combination with his Investment skill to establish his own
    pseudo-leylines, increasing his magical energy storage and creating an ever-strengthening foundation for himself and his interests.

    De Beers~Diamond Monopoly (B, Anti-Army)

    The most famous corporation founded by Archer, De Beers is a company that specializes in diamonds, holding a complete monopoly on them until
    the start of the 21st century. Contrary to popular belief, diamonds are exceedingly common, but their worth and supposed rarity are the result
    of a marketing campaign created by De Beers and their monopoly allowing them to charge whatever they like. Archer can use the resources of his
    company to build a factory that manufactures items for him in concert with his Item Construction skill. The factory takes time to set up, but
    having access to a large store of diamonds greatly raises the quality and defensive attributes of his weapons and machines.

    Background
    Cecil Rhodes was a British businessman, mining magnate and politician. He served as Prime Minister of the British Cape of Good Hope, now known
    today as South Africa. Cecil and his British South Africa Company founded the territory of Rhodesia (modern-day Zimbabwe and Zambia), Rhodes
    University and the famous Rhodes Scholarship.

    Rhodes was born a sickly child in Britain, and was sent to South Africa in the hopes that the climate would improve his health. At age 18, he entered
    the diamond trade, and over the next two decades gained near-complete domination of the world diamond market. The De Beers diamond company,
    formed in 1888, retains its prominence into the 21st century. He entered the local Parliament and served as Prime Minister for six years.

    Historians have called Rhodes "as integral a participant in southern African and British imperial history as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln
    are in their respective eras in United States history. Most histories of South Africa covering the last decades of the nineteenth century are
    contributions to the historiography of Cecil Rhodes."

    Archer can best be described as a workaholic, evidenced by the fact that he never married, saying he had too much work on his hands and would
    not make a dutiful husband. He is personable and would be a charming conversationalist if he were not so obviously itching to get back to his
    desk and finish his latest project. He's more likely to attempt alliances with other Servants but when it comes down to it, he will bring the
    full might of the British Empire down on his enemies' heads, striking quickly and decisively.

    Background:
    On the year 1888, a serial killer butchered five women in London and then disappeared without being caught. That is Jack the Ripper, a murderer whose true identity was never discovered and has since become famed throughout the entire world. Because his true identity was never found, Jack the Ripper’s form and abilities when summoned as a servant change depending on the class and the theories revolving the murderer’s true identity. In this case, this Caster-class Jack the Ripper Servant is summoned from the theory that Jack the Ripper’s true identity was Helena Blavatsky.

    Helena Blavatsky was a 19th century Russian occultist and a founder of theosophy. Having immersed herself in mysticism, she eventually came in contact with a higher existence she called the Mahatma. She could be considered a prodigy magus who possessed a unique magic circuit that let her see the world in a way no one else could. Yet, although she spent her life pursuing the unknown, her heart-felt works were condemned by the British Society of Psychical Research and ridiculed by Clock Tower. In 1891, she died in London of influenza, facing accusations of fraud from both the mundane and magical world to the very end. Remaining a mysterious woman even in death, a new accusation was added to her name many years later.

    Helena Blavatsky is one of the many people suspected to have been Jack the Ripper, albeit one often considered ridiculous. The theory was popularized when Aleister Crowley mentioned her name in his dissertation on Jack the Ripper, but besides that there is little evidence. It is true that Blavatsky was living in London during 1888 and she might’ve held pent-up frustrations due to being recently forced into semiretirement and holding a revulsion towards sexual activity, which would serve as a motive. Still, considering her age and physical state, such a feat would be incredibly difficult to pull off without being caught. Well, with magecraft that might not be impossible… either way, Blavatsky is hardly considered a serious and popular suspect. Nevertheless, the theory exists and so the Servant was born.

    As a Servant, Caster embodies both the idea that Helena was Jack as well as the theory that Jack the Ripper was a magician. Rather than simply being a variation of Jack the Ripper, Caster can also be considered as a Helena Blavatsky who has had the elements of Jack the Ripper forced upon her. In addition to her usual abilities and nature as a Heroic Spirit, she has been given the relevant legends that are associated with Jack the Ripper. Not only has this variation in her summoning given her new powers, it has also corrupted with her personality. Under the circumstances, she as a Servant is unable to remember whether she was or was not the real murderer. Truly, Caster is a Servant that is both Helena Blavatsky and Jack the Ripper.

    As an interesting aside, Helena Blavatsky was given the nickname “Jack” by Colonel Olcott during her lifetime. Of course, it has nothing to do with the Whitechapel Murders.
    Skills
    Class Skills:
    Territory Creation: A
    Creates a “Workshop” that is an advantageous position to oneself as a magus. Because she possesses A Rank in this, it is possible to create a “Temple”, which is superior to a “Workshop”.

    Item Creation: B
    The production of devices that carries magical energy. Upon manifesting, Blavatsky will always create multiple copies of miniature automata patterned after “Colonel Olcott”, the right-hand man who once served her, conveniently using them for this and that instead of maids. Incidentally, they are not very suitable for combat.


    Personal Skills:
    Sorcerer of the Misty Night: A+
    A variation of Jack’s unique skill, Murderer of the Misty Night. It is a skill representing the theory that Jack the Ripper used invisibility magic to assail his victims when they were unguarded and to escape from detection unnoticed. Functionally, it allows the user to activate a powerful invisibility spell that grants them the equivalent of A-rank Presence Concealment and Disengage. In addition, there is a chance of pre-emptive strike when activated at all times of day. On the other hand, compared to normal Presence Concealment, chance of one’s magical energy being detected is higher.

    Mental Pollution: C
    A distorted mentality that makes it possible to shut out mental interference thaumaturgy. The acquisition of this skill is the direct result of the elements of Jack the Ripper being forced onto Blavatsky. She denies any accusations of being the dreaded murderer, yet she is unable to definitively prove she wasn’t. The mental turmoil has drawn out her original hidden traumas of being called a fraud, dramatically increasing her innate paranoia and hostility towards others. As she is now, it is difficult for her to come to a mutual understanding with another person. Ironically, it is the insecurities born from the mental attacks that she suffered in life that now protect her from mental interference.

    Mahatma: A
    Helena Blavatsky’s one truth. By borrowing power from higher existences, she is able to utilize powerful magecraft. In truth, those she calls Mahatma are really the pioneers who had already reached the root and she is actually employing a multitude of thaumaturgical foundations that are engraved into the world. The magecraft that can be used include Summoning, Black Magics, Alchemy, Formalcraft (Elemental Conversion), Rune Magecraft, Ancient Egyptian Magecraft, and so on, covering many divergences. It is also possible for her to employ the Holy Church’s Baptism Rites. Because of the inconsistency of mixing several thaumaturgical foundations, the effect of this skill is that extremely powerful magecraft can sometimes occur.

    Even after becoming Jack the Ripper, Blavatsky retains this skill for it is the thing which she will never give up on. Whether she is called a fraud, whether she is accused of murder, her beliefs will not waver for that is her truth.

    “No matter the mystery, there is only one truth. Everything is known by Mahatma!”


    Sealed Skills
    The following are skills that Helena Blavatsky or Jack the Ripper would typically have separately which have been lost due to them becoming one:

    Pursuit for the Unknown: -
    A direct marketing from Ms. Blavatsky who aims for the Root (Truth). It is also a fleeting dream, of her wanting to share with others, in one way or another, the bond with the unknown that she once encountered in the middle of her dream.

    Because her mental pollution makes it difficult for her to come to an understanding with others, she has even lost the ability to share her dream with others, causing this skill to be sealed.

    Mana Tuning: -
    Drastically stimulates, simultaneously, the mana of herself and other people that are in tune with her magical energy.

    Because of the inclusion of foreign elements, Helena’s magical energy has become unstable from her usual self as a magus. Thanks to her first Noble Phantasm, her magical energy is being constantly stimulated. It is difficult to use this skill’s ability to be in tune with others when one’s own energy is constantly fluctuating. Hence, this skill has been lost.

    Information Erasure: -
    The moment the confrontation ends, the information about things like her abilities, true name and features are wiped from the opponents and eye-witnesses' memory.

    Because of Blavatsky’s identity as a famed suspect, it is impossible for her information to be erased as her true identity already exists in the mind of the world. Thus, this skill has been sealed.
    Noble Phantasm
    Noble Phantasm:

    Killer with a Hundred Names
    Ripperology

    Rank: D
    Type: Anti-Unit (Self)

    A Noble Phantasm embodying the world’s fascination with Jack the Ripper.

    The mystery of Jack the Ripper has spread across the world without anyone discovering the truth. Something about the case has caused people to be enraptured by the identity of the serial killer, to the point that there are now over 100 people suspected of being Jack, many of which are based on unlikely, ridiculous theories. No matter how irrational, no matter how insignificant, people will create answers to the unsolvable question. With each new theory, a new legend is added to identity of Jack the Ripper. That is the foundation of this Noble Phantasm.

    In effect, it is an automatic Noble Phantasm that passively activates when Caster is summoned. It imposes the world’s suspicion and fascination towards Jack the Ripper on all participants of the Holy Grail War. Whenever a participant of the Holy Grail War encounters an event or result, there is chance they will attribute the cause to Caster, no matter how irrational or unlikely. For example, if an enemy Servant saw puppets attacking civilians, they have a high probability of thinking that Caster must be the one controlling them. Or if they hear about people suddenly falling unconscious, they might think that Caster is behind it. Essentially, it is a Noble Phantasm that implants the idea that “Oh, Caster must be responsible for this” into the thoughts of others.

    The Noble Phantasm activates solely on chance. Regardless how likely it is that Caster is the culprit, all events will have the same probability of being attributed to Caster. If a target of the effect has not met Caster or does not know about Caster’s existence, they will simply connect all the incidents to a single vague entity, which will then all link to Caster upon meeting her. It is a type of mental interference manipulation which can be countered by mental resistance but not magical resistance. For each event or result that is attributed to Caster, it will raise her fame in the area. The effect of this will stimulate her mana, constantly supplying with more magical energy beyond that which she takes from her Master.

    The Noble Phantasm is a reflection of the crazy theories surrounding Jack the Ripper’s case. Just as all of the murderer’s feats are shoved to a single suspect, no matter how irrational or improbably, the Noble Phantasm pins random incidents to Caster’s name, increasing her notoriety. Naturally, she does not like being accused of incidents she did not actually cause but Caster is unable to deactivate this Noble Phantasm so there is nothing she can do.

    Unlike the other class variations of Jack the Ripper which are mysterious entities incomprehensible by the normal man, Caster is an actual person who was accused of the murders despite the improbability of her guilt. Hence, she possesses this Noble Phantasm while other Jacks don’t.


    Ritual From Hell
    Star of Goetia

    Rank: A+
    Type: Anti-Unit (Self)

    The ultimate black magic born from the actions of Jack the Ripper.

    A Noble Phantasm that crystallizes the theory that the Whitechapel Murders were part of a large magical ritual. One theory about Jack the Ripper was that he was a magician who used magecraft to fulfill the murders without being caught. In addition to that, some have deduced that the murders themselves were part of a magical pagan ritual. For example, the murders of the girls served as human sacrifices for the ritual. For example, the geographical locations of the five murders placed on a map make a star. For example, all the murders occurred when the malevolent planets of Mars, the God of Magic, and Saturn, the God worshipped on the witches’ Sabbath, were in ascendency. Such facts have led to the idea that the murders themselves were but a part in a great demonic ritual. In fact, it has even been suggested that the actions of Jack the Ripper could allow a sorcerer to attain “supreme black magical power”.

    This Noble Phantasm is the magical power that Jack the Ripper would’ve gained if the theories are true. It is an extremely powerful source of black magic from which Caster can draw upon, separate from her own Thaumaturgical Foundations. Witchcraft, curses, flight, demonic summoning, necromancy, etc. can be utilized at levels rivaling high thaumaturgy. The offensive and destructive capabilities of this power are great.

    The theory of the magic ritual itself is not directly connected to Helena. In fact, the man who is most connected to this theory was actually one of Helena’s followers. Nevertheless, she has been given this powerful ability due to the Caster class as well as her own affiliation with magecraft. This Noble Phantasm alone would allow one to be a powerful Caster-class Servant skilled in black magic. Combined with Helena’s all-rounder style, it can be brought to even higher levels. At full potential, it might even be possible to summon a Daemon stronger than Helena’s Venusian God.

    However, Helena refuses to use this Noble Phantasm with a strong conviction. After all, using the power gained from killing those women is the same as admitting that she really did kill them. Besides, why would she want to borrow power from something other than Mahatma?
    Character
    Personality:
    An eternal magical girl who is kind to others and strict to herself. Possessing a motherly disposition and an innate curiosity, an incredibly amicable and reliable Servant… This is what Helena Blavatsky would normally be.

    Summoned as Jack the Ripper, the Helena that appears this time around is somewhat different from normal. In comparison to the original Helena, Caster is much more emotionally unstable. She is prone to hysteric fits and facetious tantrums when the validity of her claims is questioned. Just mentioning the name Jack can cause her to freeze up and shake uncontrollably. Furthermore, her attitude towards others is distrusting and hostile, as if she were afraid to open her heart to others. Even possessing mental pollution, she is unable to come to a mutual understanding with others nor does she even try. Caster represents a darker side of Helena and could even be considered Dark Helena.

    The reason for the shift in her personality lies in her being summoned as Jack the Ripper. She only became a suspect after she died so she never knew about it in life. However, being summoned as Jack forces her to acknowledge that people suspect her of being a serial killer. In other words, Caster is “a Helena who has been accused of murder”.

    Liar. Fraud. Suspicion. Disbelief… these are the foundations of the scar in Helena Blavatsky’s heart, the past which she could not escape. Within Helena is a trauma regarding the suspicion the world held towards her. In life, she was ridiculed and condemned for the work she poured her heart into. She suffered many attacks from those who denounced her and lived through many pains. Although she normally acts cheerful, these dark emotions have always been a part of her. Now, finally being accused of even murder, the floodgates have burst open.

    She didn’t want to hurt anyone. She didn’t mean to kill anyone. All she ever wanted was to share her dream with others. So why did they suspect her? Why did they laugh at her? Why did they hate her?

    Nobody could see what she could. Nobody could hear the voice of Mahatma. Nobody would believe the words she spoke.

    No one can understand her.

    So why should she try and understand others?

    In the end, Caster is a Helena whose negative qualities have been amplified due to becoming Jack the Ripper. Being suspected as a serial killer has triggered her innate paranoia and trauma, turning her into a much darker, apathetic individual. She is simply scared that people will keep hurting her so she keeps others at a distance. Even so, at her core, she is still the same old caring Helena as always. If her Master believes in her, if her Master can heal her heart, then everyone’s Helena-san will revive from the flames, more reliable than ever!

    Caster has many wishes for the Holy Grail but the foremost is to prove her own innocence. In truth, she is unable to recall the final years of her life and thus is not 100% sure that she was not the real Jack the Ripper. However, she wishes to deny being a murderer with all her might. Perhaps at the end of her path, she will just be confronted with her own guilt but… even so, she will persevere.

    To be condemned. To be ridiculed. To be feared. Those are the obstacles she has always faced, yet she never gave up. To prove her own truth to the rest of the world, so that others could finally understand her dream… from the beginning, that has always been Helena Blavatsky’s goal.

    It doesn’t matter if she is Helena Blavatsky or Jack the Ripper. At the end of her path, everyone will see her view.

    After all, there is only one truth. Everything is known by Mahatma!

    Relations
    Relations:

    Colonel Olcott: Her trusty right hand man who also appears as the automatons by her side. In times of emotional strife, perhaps she would cuddle with the mascot and seek comfort in memories of Olcott.

    Jack the Ripper (Berserker): Another Jack. The very title of Jack the Ripper brings Helena no end of pain so she’d like to avoid all the other Jacks as much as possible. However, Berserker’s existence as an embodiment of mysteries does incite Helena’s innate curiosity…

    Jack the Ripper (Assassin): Another Jack. Her existence makes Caster uncomfortable, but Caster feels a sort of sympathy towards her. She does not wish to treat the young girl as Jack the Ripper as she herself does not like being accused of the title. Perhaps in another life, she’d shower the little girl with all her motherly affection.

    Nursery Rhyme: Due to her increased hostility in this form, Caster is completely unable to accept Nursery Rhyme due to her dislike of Lewis Carol, who was a warm supporter of her sworn enemy, the SPR. Perhaps in another life, she’d shower the little girl with all her motherly affection.

    Holmes: A friend and overall good person but… Sir Conan Doyle was a supporter of the SPR, wasn’t he? No, with Holmes by her side, she could surely solve the mystery of Jack the Ripper.

    Thomas Edison and Nikolas Tesla: Even in this form, she’d have to mediate between the two. Somethings never change…

    Aleister Crowley: He’s the one! The idiot who started this stupid theory- get him!!!
    Bond CE - Dear Jack
    Dear Jack

    It’s strange how the world works.

    Not too long ago, this name brought me joy. Time after time, I would smile as you called me that name.

    To me, it was proof of our friendship. It reminded me that you were by my side.

    But now, the name brings me nothing but grief. When I hear it, my body shivers and my blood grows cold. I feel like the whole world is against me and all because of that name.

    I hate that name. I hate how it sounds. I hate what it means. I hate that it is mine.

    But you know, I still want you to call me it. Because it reminds me that I am never alone. You are always by my side, in life and death.

    My dear Maloney, to you, I will always be Jack.

    Quick question; would someone (possibly fictional) who lived and died in the 17th century but only became known as a legendary figure in the 18th century qualify, or would that be too much of a stretch?

    19th Century only.

    I meant if someone lived in the 18th century but was only venerated as a hero in the 19th, could that count as "a hero from the 19th century" for the purposes of the contest?

    Depending on the circumstances, perhaps, but generally I don't think it'd really work, since I feel like it's more about when a person lived rather than when they became popularized. It'd be like considering Don Juan a 17th century hero even though his legend is clearly meant for the 14th century.

    "We are not amused."

    Saber of the Grand Empire


    Source: (X)

    Alternate FC (because lets face it, /Grand Order would do this)


    Source: (X)


    Class: Saber
    Alternate Class(es): Caster
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Region: Great Britain – Historical Facts

    Height/Weight: 149cm/40kg
    Likes: Cute princes, painting, writing, tiny crowns and hats
    Dislikes: Physical exercise
    Talent: Regal personage
    Natural Enemy: Gilgamesh
    Attribute: Man
    Traits: Female, Servant, Humanoid, King
    Armament: Sword, Crown

    Parameters:

    STR: B
    END: A
    AGI: E
    MGI: C
    LCK: A+
    NP: A++

    Skills


    Class Skills:


    Magic Resistance: 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.

    As Saber possesses negligible resistance, the rank of the skill is low by the standards of the class.

    Riding: B

    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. 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.

    As a royal, it was natural that she would be taught how to ride horses and the like to a high standard. That said, she still prefers to have others drive her.

    Personal Skills:


    Empress of the Empire: EX

    A title skill bestowed upon she who both lead and has her legend combined with the most powerful empire in the history of mankind. It elevates her parameters, and a highly potent recovery ability, allowing her to recover from being hit by even a Noble Phantasm.

    Saber has come to possess these abilities due to her and the empires legend, therefore gaining abilities based on Survivability and Domination.

    Protection from Assassination: C+

    The ability to survive attempts on one’s life. When an individual is attempting a sneak attack Saber, she temporarily gains an 'Instinct' like skill as she is able to feel the optimal course to survive the predicament unscathed. In the event where projectiles are used, the skill will rise to A-Rank.

    Saber survived several assassination attempts on her life and in many cases she wasn’t even injured. She had a natural ability for evading bullets, even at close range where any other person would be gunned down.


    Noble Phantasms


    Sword of Mercy
    Cortana

    Type: Anti-Unit
    Rank: C
    Range: 1
    Maximum Targets: 1

    The holy sword Cortana, the sister sword of Durandal and Joyeuse and once wielded by the likes of Ogier the Dane and Sir Tristan though its mystery has since diminished to that of a mere ceremonial blade of the English Crown Jewels. It is a Noble Phantasm shared by some members of the monarchy though traits and abilities may differ. Due to her fame and renown as a ‘Great Queen’ rather than a genuine connection to the blade she can wield it. However due to her unique role and class container, the weapon possesses multiple functions, each different enough to have them be treated as separate Noble Phantasms rather than a certain Caster class servant.

    Invoking her authority as a queen, she can use it to ‘Knight’ individuals to serve her. Humans will be empowered to that of low-level Heroic Spirits and although they will be certainly have a vast advantage against other humans and Magi, they will only be able to fight against Casters and Assassins on equal terms at best but still have no chance against combat oriented servants. Should another servant be knighted though, they will gain a boost akin to high ranked Mad Enhancement but with no drawback as long as they serve her.


    Glory of the Empire where the Sun Never Sets
    Cortana – Britannia

    Type: Anti-Nation
    Rank: E~EX
    Range: 1~99
    Maximum Targets: 900

    The most powerful function of the Noble Phantasm. Not the true function of the blade, it is a few steps removed due to being modified to Saber’s legend.

    Upon taking a stance, raising the sword to her side or back and releasing the ‘True Name’ she can forcibly pull out ambient magical energy from the environment, nearby leylines and even her enemies and allies if need be. The more power she draws from, the more powerful the attack becomes, although using exterior energy supply means that it doesn’t drain from the servant or master, the dark legacy of the British Empire constantly taking, consuming and destroying means that although the light that shines may be the greatest the world has ever seen, it may irrevocably destroy the land Saber walks on.

    When the energy is summoned and when Saber decides it is ready, the Noble Phantasm will unleash a surging wave of spiralling light with the simple purpose of destruction before detonating on contact. Having accomplished the feat of dragon slaying, those with the blood of dragons will take additional damage from it. Perhaps because it is currently owned by a queen, it specialises in fighting against armies rather than destroying a single target. The only weakness is the time taken to charge which is notably longer than other Noble Phantasm attacks.


    Lore

    Queen Victoria was the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 1837 until 1901; her reign lasted 63 years and she was the longest-reigning monarch until 2016, when Queen Elizabeth II surpassed her.

    She was born in London to a German princess and English prince in 1819.

    Victoria was educated by her governess where she learned to speak and read German and French well and she had a gift for drawing and painting and developed a passion for journal writing.

    At birth, Victoria was fifth in line to the throne. However upon her father’s death in 1820, Victoria became the heir apparent, since her three surviving uncles — who were ahead of her in succession — had no legitimate heirs who survived childhood. When King William IV, Victoria’s uncle and successor to George III, died in June 1837, Victoria became queen at the very young age of 18. She met her first cousin Prince Albert when she was 16, she was quickly taken by him but as she was queen he couldn’t propose marriage to her, so naturally she proposed to him. They had nine children, and made it clear they believed that a good family life and faith in God were very important. In general, English people followed their example.

    Under Queen Victoria's reign, Great Britain experienced unprecedented expansion in industry, building railways, bridges, underground sewers and power distribution networks throughout much of the empire. There were advances in science (Charles Darwin's theory of evolution) and technology (the telegraph and popular press), with vast numbers of inventions; tremendous wealth and poverty; growth of great cities like Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham; increased literacy; and great civic works, often funded by industrial philanthropists. Britain also expanded its imperial reach, doubling in size and encompassing Canada, Australia, India and various possessions in Africa and the South Pacific. The Queen was emblematic of the time: an enthusiastic supporter of the British Empire, which stretched across the globe and earned the adage: “The sun never sets on the British Empire.”

    When her husband, Prince Albert died and Victoria began to keep away from public life; this made her less popular. During the years that followed, Britain became more powerful, and in 1877, Victoria was given the title "Empress of India". This aided her popularity with her people and she had her Diamond Jubilee to celebrate 60 years of being on the throne.

    In her final years, her great weight gain caused her to balloon, Rheumatism in her legs had rendered her lame, and her eyesight was clouded by cataracts. She died on Tuesday 22 January 1901, at half past six in the evening, at the age of 81.

    Many of Victoria's children became monarchs, princes and princesses of other countries. Her own legacy of power remains prominent to this day with the time period of English history being named after her and she is frequently compared to Queen Elizabeth I who is generally considered to be the greatest of English monarchs.



    Character

    The Queen

    Saber is the very image of an imperial ruler and the embodiment of her values. She is regal, beautiful, firm and matriarchal – a far cry from the monarchs of old whose continual sexual, financial and personal scandals that had threatened the validity of the monarchy. She was beloved by her people and to those who show her reverence, she will treat with kindness and tenderness.

    To her enemies and those who earn her ire, her honesty is brutality and can appear as cruelty. Her firmness will become headstrong and refusing to listen to anyone’s opinion other than her own and can frankly come off as stroppy. As one may expect of one who famously said she was not amused.

    And yet too – those she can truly confide in, she will display a truly different side. A refined chuckle will become a burst of uncontrollable laugher strong enough to make her fall out of chairs, an enjoyment of music will become a long winded childish rant about her favourite opera singers, a sly smile will become an embarrassing attempt at flirtations.

    Her attitude towards her master.


    Saber does not recognise her master as a superior, not even as a “temporary master”. The relationship is always that of “Queen and Retainer”. Depending on how things blossom or sour, the retainer may become a loyal knight, the closest confidant or mayhap even a temporary paramour. Then again on the other hand, one might only be considered a feeble court jester, a grovelling low life or a traitor who must be struck down by her own hand.

    Her Wish


    Although she is enjoying her second life and may give some short term romance a shot as a temporary dalliance, she still loves Britain and she still loves her husband. She wilL claim her country is first and she wishes to continue the expansion the empire saw in her life and conquer the world.

    A lie.

    She wishes to be reunited with her beloved, her Albert.



    Relationships

    Marie: “Too flashy… ”

    Florence Nightingale:
    “Still as strong and beautiful as you were in war, you are a true angel. My angel.”

    Any American servant: “Oh, is that someone from the colonies? Bow.”

    Queen Elizabeth/Artoria Pendragon: “Us three women were easily the greatest monarchs in our countries history, I don’t believe that to be a coincidence. Why together we could conquer the world under a united empire! Pardon? Am I alone on this?!”



    Craft Essence


    The World In My Hand

    We are the most powerful in the world... Military, navy, economy, scientific discovery, legends of old, history, outstanding individuals, I cannot count the ways my empire is the mightiest. Yet despite all this I feel no satisfaction.

    The 'greatest wines' all taste the same, food may as well be ash in my mouth. I have my victory, the greatest victory in history. No one shall ever compare to me. Except you. I miss you. These victories are meaningless without you, I don't know how to do this with out you.

    My love, my Albert.



    Authors Notes:

    Alright with the theme and all, I originally designed this as a companion/tribute piece to asterism's own Victoria sheet which I recommend reading. You can find it here.

    Skills - Charisma would have been too predictable to throw on, as was Imperial Privilege. I originally based IP giving exclusively combat skills based on the British Empire's legend and reputation so I made a new skill. I was tempted to give Protection from Arrows as well but the assassination survival aspect was more important, so I switched it.

    NP - I ripped off myself with first function of Cortana which I gave to my recent Elizabeth sheet while the second is closer so a Spirit Bomb, albeit with negative drawbacks from the environment much like with asterisms own.

    Regarding my question earlier, would anything change if the Servant was actually a collection of wraiths of people from the 19th century who were inspired by the original hero, and borrowed his name upon manifesting as a Servant?
