    As you know, Gilgamesh was not turned evil by the Grail, but he is so disappointed in the fact that the same humanity who was once able to do this:

    when faced with divinity incarnate has now devolved to, as the comments say, "snapchat, ticktock and karens". However, when you think about it, isn't it because the gods are defeated that people no longer have something to fear nor worship? Something to keep them on their toes? Of course, you could also blame a certain pansy carpenter for perversely redefining what it means to be a king or god.

    Ah yes, the notoriously gentle and toothless Christian religion.

    I was mostly referring to the whole, y'know, Europe between the 4th and 20th centuries.

    Well, the "pansy" line was from Maggot Baits. Also, I notice that you ended your sentence on "the". Was there anything else to add there?

    Yeah that was supposed to be 'Them'

    Also my own thoughts

    I think vlad is one of the best built servants in fate in general, a great balance of flair and history, his manga dracula NP is so much better looking than the anime's holy shit.

    So Fiore's Bronze Link Manipulators has four limbs, but within Apocrypha, only three are shown in use and named: Jupiter: Tin Arm of Protection, Mars: Iron Arm of War, and Saturn: Lead Arm of Roaring. This is a callback to the seven metals of Antiquity (gold, silver, copper, tin, lead, iron, and mercury), each associated with one of the seven classical "planets", hence the different planets-metals pairs for the limbs.

    So what's the name of the unnamed fourth limb? My headcanon is that it's Venus: Copper Arm of Love(?). Why Venus instead of the Sun, the Moon, or Mercury? Symmetry. The association between Jupiter and Saturn is obvious, it's father and son who fought each other. So Mars and Venus, frequently put into opposition as masculinity and femininity, makes sense.

    Also, I'm no mineralogist, but gold and silver don't fit with the others (and bronze) due to being considered precious metals, while mercury is its own weird thing (and already used by fellow Eulyphis magus Kayneth, so Fiore probably wanted not to copy it.)

    You posted this before, right? I didn't comment on it before, but nice theory, I buy it.

    Reines = ライネス

    never going to let you go
    Though abandoned, forgotten, and scorned as out-of-date dolls, they continue to carry out their mission, unchanged from the time they were designed.
    Machines do not lose their worth when a newer model appears.
    Their worth (life) ends when humans can no longer bear that purity.
