    Inb4 Orion and Daybit's Grand got summoned because VI pop up in their LBs, but it hightailed off there as soon as they sensed Arthur's approach so now there are many Grands everywhere that don't know what's going on LOL

    Now being serious, what I'm curious about is Arthur's circumstances because chasing down VI should be the job of a Grand but Arthur's situation is so special, should he be Grand Saber? a substitute? a Grand Saber from a parallel world so we'll have GS Artoria fight alongside him? will his story culminate with him officially becoming GS?
    I really wish they'll stop dragging Arthur/VI's storyline any longer

    Kay. Here's to hoping that the chapter doesn't end disappointingly.

I actually don't know if they call Skadi a Pseudo but it's just as bad to me, regardless of the correct terminology.
    Honestly, even if it is him as a god, I don't him to be a Grand. Grands should be Heroic Spirits only, no technicalities.

    But I agree, I don't think he's a Grand.
    Spoiler:
    Well we have this from Roma mats:

    The Great Nation Founding King. In his last moments, Romulus did not die, but rather had “disappeared”. After storms and lightning broke out suddenly at a field nearby the Palus Caprae (Goat Marsh), his figure was erased. Because of the words spoken by a farmer later on after Romulus’ disappearance, the people of Rome interpreted this anomalous phenomenon as, “The Great Romulus had arrived at the queue to become a god due to the intentions of the God of War, Mars, who is his father”, and that became the conclusive interpretation. The farmer encountered Romulus after his “disappearance” at Quirinal Hill, and from the mouth of the Great King of Nation Founding, he informed him that Romulus has now changed into a god referred to as Quirinus————It is said that this is what has been informed to the people.

    Quirinus. That is the name of an olden god purported to be among the ranks of Jupiter, the Supreme Being spoken of in Roman Mythology, and Mars, the God of War. This anecdote was spread to the people of Rome, and this olden god was born again as a new god who became unified with the King of Nation Founding.
    So it could just as well be both Syncretism and Divine self. Skadi is dumb, I agree, but they were a fusion by LB Odin (through Doylist SMT memes). Oh well, we'll see what happens.

    Huh. I wonder if they planned Quirinius from the start and that's why Romulus was made a Lancer.

    Not really a spoiler but just in case
    Spoiler:
    Romulus is a Lancer because of the legend of his spear turning into a tree. That's a real life legend. His character in general is heavely based on "The Life of Romulus" from Plutarch's Parallel Lives. Both the lance-tree and Quirinus stuff are definitely taken from that book, those sections of the profile are almost summaries of it.
    What's more, the parallel live to Romulus is Theseus, and his ship's paradox that Theseus makes a reference on Circe's interlude also comes from Plutarch, so Theseus will most likely be based on this work too.

    I don't want no equal sign god stuff anywhere near Grand status regardless of what classification or justification is.
    If it's just cool Romulus with his own cool god powers then that's fine, just don't make him a Grand for that.

    For clarification on what an equals sign in a Servant's name actually means
    The interpunct ・ (中黒, nakaguro, "middle black") or "katakana middle dot" (as the Unicode consortium calls it) is a small dot used for interword separation. It is also known as nakapochi, nakapotsu and nakaten. It has a fixed width that is the same as most kana characters.
    To separate foreign words and names when written in kana: パーソナル・コンピューター (personal computer), and occasionally for Japanese names, particularly when there would otherwise be confusion as to where one name ends and another begins (in creative writing, especially manga and light novels when transcribing proper nouns, there's a fad of substituting the interpunct with an equal sign, a white star or any other "fitting" symbol)
    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.

    The equal sign being used as an english/romaji replacement for the interpunct actually makes SO much more sense now. I kept thinking it was supposed to denote a sort of pseudo Servant that entailed an existing Servant being the vessel for a different Servant/diety.

    Still weird, but makes so much more sense now.

    Unfortunately there are unintentional biases math implants in people when it comes to the "=" sign
