    Tempting, but he seems a little too much like a full god for my taste. I guess the Kamuy are borderline cases in the Nasuverse though.

    Skills
    Class Skills

    Magic Resistance - Rank D: Grants protection against magical effects. Differing from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether.
    Cancels Single-Action spells. Magic Resistance of the same degree of an amulet that rejects magical energy.

    Riding - Rank B: A Class Skill of Rider and Saber class Servants, 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.

    Personal Skills

    Bravery - Rank C: The ability to negate mental interference such as pressure, confusion and fascination. It also has the bonus effect of increasing melee damage. Not usable under the effects of Mad Enhancement.
    Not even her last years spent in prison could dull Saberís spirit.

    Stalking - Rank E: A Skill for keeping on one's pursuit of a beloved target.
    In Saberís case, Stalking manifests as a determination to keep going until she has reached her beloved. In essence, when using Stalking a target, she can keep going despite adversity and injury.

    Charisma - Rank D: 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.
    Rather than manifesting as the ability to lead people, Saberís Charisma instead shows itself as the ability to Ďbe noticedí and make impressions on others. The Skill also gives her a slight advantage when attempting to charm others.

    Noble Phantasms

    Blade of Desire
    Lama di Seduzione

    Anti-Unit, Rank C
    Lama di Seduzione is the crystallization of Saberís desires from the time she most wanted to appear as a heroic knight. Though the blade itself is ornate, it holds no particular power nor is it wielded in a masterful technique. Rather, the sword acts as an instrument of Saberís powers of seduction.
    The effects of the Noble Phantasm are passive in nature, and as such activate whenever a foe is struck by Saberís blade. Acting like a poison, each wound dealt delivers a small amount of Saberís narcissistic lover for herself into the enemy. With every consecutive strike, the target will find more and more to appreciate in Saberís form and movement, slowly becoming fully lovestruck with her. The strength of the effect is determined solely by how deep each particular wound is.
    The entrancing effects of singular strikes last for several hours, allowing Saber to take her time with her rather unique method of seduction. Once fully enthralled, a target remains under the effects for several days or until another mental interference effect tries to affect them. If Saber is successful in winning over multiple targets, the full duration is shared between them.

    Description
    Likes: Sex, intrigue, chess
    Dislikes: Conformity, rejection
    Talents: Seduction, social climbing
    Natural Enemy: Peter of Aragon

    Saberís true identity is Macalda di Scaletta, the Baroness of the Sicilian Vespers.

    Macalda gives out the air of a noblewoman, though from underneath her haughty elegance something more debased clearly shines through. She is proud of her beauty and of the fame and power it helped her achieve in life. Macalda is very promiscuous, being almost relentless in her seeking of pleasure, and cares little for societal norms when it comes to her behaviour. She is also not averse to challenges, and will doggedly pursue even those that rebuke her should she decide that seducing them is worth her trouble. In fact, in most cases reaction only strengthens her desire to Ďhaveí the current target of her affections.
    Despite her seemingly single-minded pursuit of pleasure, Macalda possesses many other talents besides her beauty. She is exceptional in the field of intrigue, possessing a mind fit for political games, understands strategy remarkably well for a woman of her bearing and is praised unanimously for her martial valour. It must also be noted that her pleasure-seeking ways actually detract from her natural charm, and Macalda can prove quite appealing to even the purest should she actually behave.
    As might be expected, Macalda sees little in other Servants besides targets for sexual conquest and rivals. When it comes to men, she delights in the idea of heroes serving at her feet, and thus pursues them. With women, she mostly sees rivals. However, should someone provide interest or a challenge to her, especially an intellectual one, she is liable to start viewing them as a person rather than as a tool for her pleasure or an obstacle. Through this, she can even grow to respect others, regardless of their gender.
    Macalda views her Master in much the same light as she viewed her husbands. In recompense for the magical energy sustaining her, she does seek to please them, and is naturally not adverse to more intimate methods of exchange. Still, she will earnestly bend her considerable talent for strategy to her Masterís service, and can prove a loyal ally. As strange as it may seem, Macalda will not betray her Master under normal circumstances, unless they betray her first. She will not, however, defend someone whose death is certain, and will abandon an injured or dying Master without a regret.
    Macalda wishes for a second chance at life, so that she may once again rise in rank and fame as she did in the past.

    Lore
    Macalda di Scaletta was a Sicilian baroness, warrior woman, lady-in-waiting, and courtesan during the Angevin and Aragonese periods. Though the daughter of Giovanni di Scaletta and a Sicilian noblewoman, she was of humble origins. Macalda was noted for her unscrupulous political conduct, inclination to betray marriage (political and human), and for her easy and promiscuous sexual habits. Besides her military education, Macalda is also noted for another quality, unusual as it is for a medieval woman: she knew how to play chess, for which she can be recognized as a historical first among women and in Sicilian chess. Records of her actions and character vary significantly in the various records of her life, from a deceptive, scheming harlot to a beautiful and noble (if promiscuous) woman.
    Her family was of very humble social extraction, and initially experienced distressed economic conditions, from which they would be able to skillfully free themselves thanks to an unstoppable social rise, whose apex was reached by Macalda. The very young Macalda was first taken as wife by Guglielmo Amico, who once had been baron of Ficarra, but was then despoiled of property and exiled in the time of the Swabians. Both parties sought advantage from the marriage, but the hopes of Macaldaís husband were dashed and he eventually ended up in complete poverty. Macalda had no remorse: without regrets she abandoned her husband dying in the Templars' Hospital, and began wandering for some time, wearing the habit of a friar minor, sojourning in various provinces between Messina and Naples, and exhibiting behavior that was not impeccable. In Naples, particularly, the widow would be entwined in an incestuous relationship with a relative. Having gone back to Messina, she slipped unrecognized into the house of another relative, with whom she committed to a new sexual relationship that verged on incestuous. Finally Macalda, by the will of King Charles, even succeeded in getting confirmation of her ownership of the property claimed in vain by her now dead husband, Guglielmo d'Amico.
    Again by royal will the woman was given in marriage to Alaimo da Lentini, who at the time was quite influential in Angevin circles. His first marriage had been with another woman also named Macalda. When Alaimo's splendors at the Angevin court were about to decline, it was thanks to the maneuvers of his intriguing wife that he managed to rebuild his reputation, at first with the Sicilians, becoming one of the principal instigators of the Sicilian Vespers (a revolt that his consort also adhered to), and then at the Aragonese court. Once the revolt had broken out, in the situation that saw Alaimo leave to defend Messina from the siege, Macalda became the governor of Catania, acting in lieu of her husband. On that occasion, Macalda made herself the leading figure in Catania by an unscrupulous betrayal of the French who had rebelled against her in the clamor of the Vespers: after having feigned a gracious welcome, she stripped them of their property instead, and then left them to the mercy of the enraged people.
    following the arrival of Peter of Aragon in Sicily, rises an intrigue sketched out by her with the purpose of getting herself the role of the king's "favorite". Once she learned of the Aragonese arriving in Randazzo, Macalda presented herself to them in great pomp, adorned with superb military attire, holding a silver mace in her hand, animated by intentions of sexual lust that were soon made explicit. However, the king was avoiding amorous adventures at the time; he feigned that he did not understand her intentions and, honoring her and treating her with courtesy, personally conducted her to the inn with an escort of knights. Peter's behavior did not make Macalda give up: by pretending not to understand, she began to follow the Aragonese in his itinerary across the island. Undeterred, Macalda engaged in a vigorous pursuit, following the king across Sicily, always seeking entry to wherever the king stayed.
    Macalda and her husband eventually took part in Peter of Aragonís new court, so intimate with the king as to be admitted to sit at his table. The defeat inflicted on her by Peter of Aragon's ostentatious marital fidelity gravely wounded her feminine pride, inciting Macalda to vindictive behavior, with acts of jealousy and emulation toward the court and particularly toward Queen Constance. Macalda began to defy her openly, acting like a royal highness, and made a show of snubbing and degrading going so far as refusing to call her "queen," and limiting her, in her haughtiness, to the reductive title "mother of the kingís son." The episodes of this rivalry led to great scandal in the surroundings, putting the queen's kindness and proverbial patience to a severe test.
    Macaldaís husband eventually fell from favour, and he departed from the court. His supporters, Macalda among them, were prosecuted. Once Peter of Aragon died and his son took the throne, Macaldaís husband, who had survived until that time by the kingís goodwill, was executed. Macalda herself remained in captivity. Her captivity allowed another of her unexpected qualities to be revealed, that of chess player: we know in fact that, during her imprisonment in the Matagrifone castle of Messina, Macalda entertained herself at the game of chess with the Emir of Djerba, Margam ibn Sebir, who was also held in the prison. Also in these encounters, the haughty Macalda did not fail to astonish the bystanders and her jailers with the sensation caused by her "vivacity and the immodesty of her garments" that she flaunted.
    From the time of her imprisonment, after the information on her proud address to Roger of Lauria and her entertainments in the prison of Matagrifone, practically every trace of Macalda is missing from the chronicles of the day, a silence that has warranted historians' presumption of her death a few years later.

    Notes
    Iím annoyed by the fact that not one scholar seems to have recorded any of Macaldaís feats in battle, hence the rather boring NP. All of them remark that she was a warrior and apparently dueled several people, and she did try to capture the heroic nature I feel fits the Saber class in her attempt to woo Peter of Aragon.

    That NP is a very good way of covering up Macalda's lack of recorded combat feats. Great job as always, Shiki.

    Fake Assassin


    Assassin
    Identity: Chž
    Height: 167 cm
    Weight: 58 kg
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Attribute: Man
    Origin: China
    Armament: Dad and mom?
    Natural enemy: King HelŁ of Wu

    Parameters:
    Strength: D
    Endurance: D
    Agility: B
    Luck: E
    Mana: B
    NP: C

    Background
    When the king HelŁ of the Wu nation ordered the blacksmith Gān Jiŗng to forge two divine swords for him, the latter found himself unable to do it, as heíd need to fuel the furnace with a human life. In the end, he became able to fulfill his job thanks to the sacrifice of MÚ Yť, who threw herself to the furnace wishing for the safety of her husband. In the end, Gān Jiŗng was executed for not only having taken too long, but also for having offered the king one sword instead of two.

    With the couple having ended their lives in vain, a child raised his voice towards the sky and claimed vengeance. The name of that child was Chž, the son of Gān Jiŗng and MÚ Yť. Although Chž was very young when he lost his parents, he already had set his mind in avenging them by killing HelŁ. He found the sword that his father had hidden from the king and practiced for years to carry out his revenge.

    By the time Chž was ready for the assassination, the king had a premonitory dream in which he was killed by a young boy. Immediately, he put a prize for that kidís head and sent out soldiers to execute him. Chž lost his hopes when he found out about it. He had prepared all his life for killing the king, but he wasnít ready to face something like that. Realizing his efforts were useless, he cried his own impotency. It was then when he was found by an assassin. The assassin talked with Chž, and learning about his story, acceded to assassinate HelŁ on his behalf, if he committed suicide. Without hesitation, Chž killed himself, and the assassin, moved by his determination, decided to fulfill the part of his promise.

    Bringing with him Chžís head and sword, he showed them to the king, but he was unsettled by the head staring at him. The assassin suggested him to boil the head so that it decomposed, but after 40 days it didnít change at all. It was then when the king was suggested by the assassin to stare back at the head, so that his authority forced it to rot. When the king leaned against the cauldron, he was decapitated by the assassin, who then cut off his own head. The three heads were boiled away in such way that they couldnít be distinguished, so all of them were buried as the king.

    Although king HelŁ was killed, Chžís grudge still persists. But being that his history doesnít suffice to qualify as a Servant, he requires to possess a compatible and strong enough vessel (body). In this case, he has used the body of a youngster who coincidentally has strong ties with his parentsí swords.


    Personality
    Chž, who was forced to mature way before the rest of people, is a stoic boy who doesnít express his emotions much. Focused in achieving his self-imposed goal, he pushes forwards while only thinking ďthis time I wonít failĒ, constantly recriminating himself for having been a weak and a coward in the past. His inability to avenge his parents in the past has turned him into a cold-blooded, self-loathing warrior.

    Having built by himself such a hard shell can only mean that deep inside heís still soft. In effect, someone who didnít have the opportunity to grow properly, without family or friends, only living to slash the one he swore to murder, canít understand properly how to manage his own emotions. Thus, things like happiness or love are completely unknown to him, and experiencing them only results in him putting a blank face and becoming more taciturn than how he already is.

    Due to the circumstances of his summoning, Chž has also acquired a certain sense of justice in which he considers unnecessary and wrong to sacrifice one to save many. That justice theoretically comes from the possessed body, but perhaps Chž already shared that kind of ideal to begin with. He himself doesnít know, for his story was of avenging people, not of saving them, but he doesnít disagree with this ideal.

    On another note, it seems that, since nobody could cook for him, he is actually quite good at the kitchen, but heís reticent to show his skills.

    Treatment with the Master: There is no emotional bond. The Master does the summoning and Chž does the killing. The relation is completely contractual. Chž must only be thought of as a mercenary that collaborates with a mage merely because itís the only way for him to exist. For some reason or another, the situation changes if the Master is a little sister-type.

    Likes: ďIíve only thought about killing that king since I have memory. I didnít have time to find my preferences.Ē

    Dislikes: ďPeople that think of me as weak and coward, and above all, cruel bastards that donít value the sacrifice of others. Those people are the worst, if you ask me.Ē

    Wish for the Grail: ďIím mentally prepared this time. Send soldiers, warriors, or even monsters if you will, HelŁ. Iím going to cut that head of yours with my own hands.Ē


    Skills
    Class skills
    Presence Concealment E-
    Somewhat makes it hard to be noticed, but nothing else.

    Personal skills
    Independent Action B
    Allows to survive without connection to a mana source for about a couple of days.

    Magic Resistance D
    Protects from Single-Action spells, same as an amulet that rejects magecraft. Originally not a skill of the Assassin class, Chž obtains it through the wards of his swords.

    Planning D
    Strategical thoughts destined to performing an assassination. This skill only takes into account assassination missions with few people involved, unlike Military Tactics. Whether one will survive or not is a different matter.
    Although Chž planned his whole life to kill HelŁ, he never came up with a proper strategy to do so, and never managed to perform the assassination. Because of that, the rank is low.

    Projection Magecraft A
    A kind of magecraft that allows to create copies of objects. A skill obtained by Chž from his host body. Itís possible to reconstruct weapons on the levels of Noble Phantasms with only one rank less of quality.

    The married swords that were created through the sacrifice of Chžís mother and the dedication of his father, a ďman-made Divine ConstructĒ born thanks to the unbreakable union between his parents. Simple yet elegant, they are shrouded with several wards that protect against spells, and they will automatically return with their couple if separated, in a fashion similar to a boomerang. They also possess the ability to bring down any kind of monster with a single slash.

    Through Projection, Chž can replicate the blades with great ease. In battle, he prefers to use the originals as a last resort, projecting copies to fight instead and constantly replacing them if theyíre thrown away or destroyed.

    Originally, Chž only possessed Gān Jiŗng, but the strong bond between the twin swords has drawn MÚ Yť as well. Father and mother protect their beloved child together.

    A technique that can only be executed with the swords Gān Jiŗng and MÚ Yť and by someone able to replicate them through Projection. It takes advantage of the property of mutual attraction of the blades, as well as from the fact that theyíll be attracted to each other even if theyíre copies.

    A first pair of swords is thrown towards the enemy with the intention of being deflected. Using the temporary distraction caused by repelling them, Chž slashes twice with a new set of blades. At the same time, the first pair, attracted to the second, slashes from behind. The final blow is dealt with a third pair being held in his hands without releasing the other.

    As Chž only possessed one of the two swords and didnít know Projection back when he was alive, he couldnít use this technique. Itís thanks to the fighting experience of his host body that he has become able to perform it.

    Type: Anti-Unit (Self)
    Rank: Ė
    Description:

    Currently lost due to being summoned as an Assassin and for the limitations of the summoning itself. A Noble Phantasm that represents how nobody was able to distinguish between the heads of Chž, king HelŁ, and the assassin that killed the king. As a result, the three heads were claimed to be the kingís, and funerary rituals were prepared for them as such.


    Relations
    EMIYA: ďI donít know why you seem to hate me, but itís not as if I liked you either, so I guess itís fine. Well, keep taking care of Mother and Father, mister ex-hero of justice.Ē

    Emiya Kiritsugu: ďI thank you for having trained this body, old man. I need this kind of power to have my wish granted.Ē

    Pārvatī: ďI donít know who you are, but this body looks like it wants to stay near you, soÖ Here you have meÖĒ

    Miyu Edelfelt: ďFor some reason, I feel like I can't leave you aloneÖ Fine, I'll stick with you.Ē

    Jīng Kē: ďWe both failed at our assassinations, but you have more experience at this kind of things than me. Feel free to assist me in my training.Ē


    The family is complete. Papa and Mama are secretly worried about their son not smiling much, but they hope it's just a phase and are happy to be with him again.

    The Miyuverse Shirou FC was just an esthetic choice at the beginning, since using adult EMIYA didn't fit the depiction of Chž as a young boy. I don't watch Kaleid, but I know a bit about its plot, so I hope that the small parts that make reference to it are correct. The skillset is way too lacking, but that's what happens when you pick a character like this.

    Chi: I wonder if Single-Mindedness would be more fitting than Planning to represent how he dedicated his life to killing king Helu, since you even admit he never formed much of a plan to do so. Also, I'm curious what his third NP would do and why it's sealed away in the Assassin Class. Given the legend, I'd assume it'd be some sort of disguise ability that lets him borrow people's identities?

    I've said it some other times, but I consider that Single-Mindedness is a skill specific for geniuses. Perhaps something like Determination of Steel would have been better?

    As for the third NP, its effect is the same as Waver's second NP alternating between the personality and abilities of HelŁ, the assassin, and Chž himself. It's currently sealed because he manifests only as a kid that wants to kill the king.

    Fake Assassin: Awesome Sheet! I have a soft spot for Pseudo-Servants, so I thought this was pretty cool.
    Actually, it reminds me that I have a Heaven's Feel Saber!Shirou Sheet I made a while back. Should probably upload that here at some point...

    Skills
    Class Skills

    Magic Resistance - Rank E: Grants protection against magical effects. Differing from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether.
    Cannot cancel spells, but magic damage is reduced somewhat. Though he hails from a time without Mystery, the romanticism surrounding his legend grants him some degree of resistance to magic.

    Riding - Rank A: A Class Skill of Rider and Saber class Servants, 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.
    All vehicles and all creatures but those of Phantasmal Beast and Divine Beast-rank can be used as mounts.

    Personal Skills

    Charisma - Rank C++: 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.
    Rider possesses an overwhelming charm, being fully capable of leading a troop of men. He can catch the hearts of others easily, going so far as to have had the king of England demand his release out of sympathy upon Riderís capture.

    Highwayman - Rank A+: A Skill born from a criminal life. Highwaymen were robbers who operated on horseback, mostly romanticized as roaming the roads of England from the Elizabethan to Victorian times. Due to the gentlemanly reputation of highwaymen, the Skill grants a charm-like effect to the user, though one that is easily ignored by Servants. In addition to this, the owner of the Skill can hold up his enemies, inflicting a rank-down on their Agility parameter and their mobility for a short period of time.
    Rider is known as one of the most famous highwaymen in the history of Britain.

    Mystic Eyes - Rank E+: A Skill where one has possession of Mystic Eyes, capable of imparting magical effects upon a subject and interfering with the outside world.
    Rider possesses extremely low-grade Mystic Eyes of Charm, allowing him to enchant targets of either gender.

    Noble Phantasms

    One Who Abhors Violence
    The Highwayman of Hearts

    Anti-Unit, Rank D
    Riderís method of robbery manifested as a Noble Phantasm. It is a technique used to heighten the effectiveness of his Mystic Eyes to their limit. As such, it appears almost as if the world itself bends to the legend of the romanticized highwayman. Riderís every request is tended to, and onlookers take even such things as highway robbery with good grace.
    In life, Rider was able to lead a successful career as a thief despite never once resorting to violence. As a Servant, this ability is empowered to the point that he can momentarily seem to make the very World around him revolve around the idea of a charming gentleman criminal that always succeeds in his endeavors and wins the hearts of ladies. Rendering the area around Rider as a ďno-violence zoneĒ, it prevents the very thought of fighting from entering the heads of others. Within such an effect, Riderís sheer charm and charisma can carry him through most situations.
    The Highwayman of Hearts is a magical mental interference and as such a subject to both Magic Resistance as well as Skills and other effects that negate mental attacks.

    Description
    Likes: Manners, fashion
    Dislikes: Violence, poverty
    Talents: Charm, entertainment
    Natural Enemy: Sir William Morton

    Riderís true identity is Claude Du Vall, the Gallant Highwayman.

    Du Vall is every bit the charming, gentlemanly robber that highwaymen are in stories. Despite this image being something he carefully cultivated in life, Du Vall himself was so taken with the persona that he came to enjoy and embody it, rather than wearing it as a mask. He is fond of theatrics and fun, and wishes to enjoy his time in the Holy Grail War. And should he be able to make a profit out of that endeavor, all the better.
    Though carrying weapons, Du Vall is far from adept as using them, having never had to resort to violence during his career. The sword is his only tool, as he was once a soldier - the pistols he carries were never even loaded, though he is capable of using them for threats or bluffs. As a Servant, he knows that he cannot fully refrain from fighting, but refuses to take the life of another under any circumstances.
    Unsurprisingly, Du Vall has a fondness for female Heroic Spirits, wishing to please and amuse them with his antics. He does not particularly like warriors, however, and is likely to interfere in their battles when he feels the situation appropriate and attempts to convince them to stand down.
    Despite being a criminal, Du Vall acts just as gallantly towards his Master as everyone else. Though he acts according to his Masterís wishes, he will cheerfully ignore orders that are not to his liking. Understanding his unsuitability for a Holy Grail War, he regards his participation as his one betrayal towards his Master. Despite not believing in his chances of success, Du Vall seeks nothing but to please himself and his Master when he can.
    Du Vall acknowledges that he is unlikely to achieve a wish to the Holy Grail. Still, if the impossible were to happen, he would want another chance at life and a return to fame. Due to his particular brand of loyalty, however, he would likely defer to his Master first in terms of a wish.

    Lore
    Du Vall was born in Domfront in Normandy in 1643 to a respectable but poor family. His father Pierre earned his living as a miller whilst his mother, Marguerite was the daughter of a tailor. In his early teens Du Vall left Domfront to travel to Paris and make his fortune. He seems to have fallen into the employment of a group of English Cavaliers who had followed the exiled Charles II to France. Du Vall settled in the St Germain district of Paris and spent his time running errands for the Englishmen and working at a place called St Esprit, which was a cross between a tavern, an ale house, a cook shop and a brothel. It was here that he probably learned the ways of the world and became a connoisseur of women as well as dabbling in a little stealing on the side. On Charles IIís restoration to the British throne in 1660, Du Vall accompanied the returning Englishmen to England working in either the stables or as a page boy in the household of Charles Lennox, Duke of Richmond, though he only worked for the man for a short time before being dismissed.
    He was said to have rented a house in Wokingham and continued to live the high life, but being overly fond of women, drinking and gambling plays havoc with your finances especially if you donít have much to start with. Du Vall, finding himself financially embarrassed, seems to have decided to turn to a life of crime. He was obviously good at it as he somehow became the leader of a gang of notorious highwaymen. As a highwayman Du Vall seems to have found his purpose in life, choosing a lifestyle which brought him the fame, fortune and women which he craved. He revelled in being an infamous highwayman preferring to operate on the roads to London where the richest picking could be found. In particular the area of Holloway between Highgate and Islington became his patch and despite his genteel manners he had no qualms about living a life of crime and debauchery. He was also clever enough to be in control of his own publicity carving his image as a debonair and courteous highwayman. He also wanted it to be known that he abhorred the use of violence. This must have been from a sense of fun and theatrics rather than from any practical reason as you would hang just the same whether you killed a man or not.
    The most famous episode from his life and which has been romanticised to such a degree that it probably has squeezed any truth from it is the account of Du Vall holding up a carriage in Hampstead Heath. On seeing the carriage appear he made the standard call ĎStand and Deliverí. Inside the carriage were a beautiful young lady and her older husband. Determined not to be seen as frightened and impressed with the handsome face of the highwayman she suddenly produced a flageolet which she just happened to have on her and started playing. As you would expect of a highwayman along with his pistols and sword he also carried a flute and in response started to play as well. Du Vall then asked the musical lady whether she could dance as well as she played. She accepted his invitation and with I guess music being played by one of Du Vallís equally versatile men, the lady and the highwayman danced a coranto under a moonlit sky. The ladyís husband naturally a bit miffed at this point strongly suggested that his wife get back into the carriage. As the husband started to give orders to drive off Du Vall politely reminded him that he had to pay for his eveningís entertainment. Now either the gentlemen only gave Du Vall £100 which was accepted by him in good humour and ďwith a flamboyant sweep of his feathered hatĒ, despite knowing full well that there was a further £300 hidden under the manís seat.
    On the 19 November 1669 a royal proclamation was issued with Du Vall named first in a list of notorious offenders and a reward of £20 placed on his head. The London Gazette described him as ďthe most wanted highwayman in EnglandĒ. Du Vall was forced to leave England and return to France to wait until things had cooled down. Although back on home territory and probably trying to lie low, Du Vall was unable to keep out of trouble. Finding highway robbery less lucrative over that side of the Channel since carriages travelled with less money and more guns Du Vall decided to return to England.
    Unfortunately shortly after his return Du Vallís luck ran out. It was reported that during a drunken night of revelry at the Hole-in-the-Wall in Chandos Street in London, early in 1670, Du Vall was finally arrested. Du Vall was arraigned and convicted at the Old Bailey of six counts of highway robbery. It seems that even at this stage Du Vall was convinced that he would be pardoned by Charles II but in the end due to the judge, Sir William Morton threatening to resign if the conviction was overturned Charles decided to stay well out of it.
    Whilst Du Vall was imprisoned it seems he was not short of company as a steady flow of wealthy women; some of whom might have been his victims and others simply eager to get a glance of the devilishly handsome highwayman. On the 21 January 1670 at the age of twenty seven, Du Vall was hanged at Tyburn. According to records as well as the ladies quite a few men attended. The men were possibly relieved that the spell that Du Vall had cast on their wives, daughters, sisters and even mothers would finally be vanquished. After his death, Du Vall was cut down and brought in a mourning coach to a pub near Covent Gardens. He lay in state for several days although the name of the deceased was withheld from the pub owner so as not to cause any problems. The bed posts were covered in black drapes, candles lit and the body watched over by several men in black. He was visited by a number of veiled women who stricken with grief took their last tearful leave of Du Vall.
    Du Vall managed his reputation or legend to the last. If true a note was found on his body when his clothes were searched which included a thank you to all the women who had visited him, tried to attain a pardon for him, comforted him and would accompany him on his final journey to the gallows. He also reassured them that he was prepared for his death and had made his peace with his maker.
    A memorial at his grave read:
    ďHere lies Du Vall: Reder, if male thou art,
    Look to thy purse; if female, to thy heart.
    Much havoc has he made of both; for all
    Men he made to stand, and women he made to fall
    The second Conqueror of the Norman race,
    Knights to his arm did yield, and ladies to his face.
    Old Tyburnís glory; Englandís illustrious Thief,
    Du Vall, the ladiesí joy; Du Vall, the ladiesí grief.
    Ē

    The traced copies are much weaker in all senses. For reference, the original is said to be able to one-shot Gilles' gigantic horror, something you perfectly know EMIYA can't do with his copies.
    Waver's second NP is a letter to emperor Liu Shan that for some reason is EX-ranked. We know nothing else about what it does.
    I've already explained in my previous post what Sān Tůu WŠng is supposed to do. Not going to think about its detailed effects.
    Not going to think either about "how would X react to Y".
    Surprisingly good suggestion from your part, to add Eye of the Mind, but I feel like it'd end up looking more as if Shirou was the actual Servant and not Chž.
    I'm not doing the extra classes, although I did think of making a Y2K fake Mooncancer with BB.

    Golden Rule - Rank B: A Skill that refers to the measurement of one's fortune to acquire wealth.
    As one of the richest men of his era, Saber attains this Skill at rank B. His financial power is a part of his strength as much as his combat ability.

    Saberís charisma is especially effective against ruling figures and members of the nobility. Sufficient to lead an army, though no boost in morale is provided.

    Noble Phantasms

    The Fabled Sword of Damocles
    The Kingmaker

    Anti-Unit, Rank C+
    A Noble Phantasm stemming from Saberís nickname as the kingmaker during Britainís Wars of the Roses while also adhering to the principles of the sword of Damocles. The Kingmaker is bound to Saberís secondary sword, which he claims is the Sword of Justice, also known as Cortana. It is indeed recorded that Saber may have come to carry the blade during his life.
    The Kingmaker functions through Saber pledging his allegiance to another, his chosen ďkingĒ, by the royal sword. If his pledge is accepted, a ghostly duplicate of the sword appears, hovering behind the back of Saberís target. As long as the ďkingĒ carries Saberís allegiance, all of their parameters are ranked up and they passively receive a small amount of magical energy. The sword also strikes and parries in defense of the target it has been bestowed to.
    However, The Kingmaker carries a more nefarious side to it as well. On accepting the benefits of Saberís allegiance, the target automatically forfeits all defenses against the spiritual sword that signifies their proclaimed kingship. Should Saberís target break faith with or betray him, The Kingmaker will remove the benefits it has granted and strike the target with perfect accuracy. Executed as a surprise attack and bypassing all defenses, The Kingmaker is capable of slaying almost any target.

    Description
    Likes: Being appreciated, service
    Dislikes: Betrayal, internal turmoil
    Talents: Ambition, plotting
    Natural Enemy: Henry VI, Edward IV

    Saberís true identity is Richard Neville, though he is better known as the Earl of Warwick, the Kingmaker.

    Warwick is a shrewd man, though he bends his intellect to the service of his liege. Though he had ambitions to rule in life, he realized the folly of these aspirations by the time of his death. Rather than acting like the conniving, power-hungry fool that he was in life, Warwick instead dedicates himself to serving as a steadfast supporter to his Master.
    Naturally given to resentment, Warwick is highly prone to feelings of dissatisfaction if he feels his actions and advice are not appreciated enough. Though not suffering from the effects of Innocent Monster, his reputed treachery sometimes manifests itself as urges to quit the service of those Warwick feels have betrayed him.
    In regard to Heroic Spirits, Warwick feels very conflicted about authority figures, especially those he recognizes as worthy kings. His fondest wish would be a life of service to them, but as Servants there is no choice but to act as enemies. He has no qualms about feigning allegiance to another, though he is regretful that he must act in such treacherous ways. As such, when making alliances he acts remarkably sincere in assisting his allies, making the most of his time in their service. Ironically, he cannot stand traitors of any kind, despite being himself considered a notorious one. Despite himself, he also carries some resentment towards those who had the good fortune of serving a monarch that appreciated them.
    Warwick is a loyal Servant, treating his Master as his liege and serving him without question. His desire to support his Master sometimes leads to problems, as Warwick still retains some of his habits, chief among them his tendency to act in his Masterís benefit without their knowledge and making extensive plans without checking on his liegeís opinion on them first. These plans can be a source of mutual frustration for Warwick and his Master once they are foiled or outed.
    Warwickís wish to the Holy Grail is to remove his treachery and prevent the Wars of the Roses, where many of his friends and relatives died.

    Lore
    The Nevilles were an ancient, noble family from Durham in the north of England. Richard Neville married Anne Beauchamp and through her secured the earldom of Salisbury and a substantial fortune. Luckier still Anneís brother Henry died and so did his daughter, meaning Richard found himself Earl of Warwick.
    Warwick emerged in the 1450s at the centre of English politics. Originally a supporter of King Henry VI, a territorial dispute with the Duke of Somerset led him to collaborate with Richard Duke of York in opposing the king. York was killed, but his son Edward, with Warwickís assistance, went on to take the crown of England as Edward IV.
    Edwardís decision to marry Elizabeth Woodville, and keep it a secret from Warwick for five months, changed their relationship forever, as Warwick had spent a long time securing an alliance with Franceís Louis XI through an act of marriage. Outraged by this and Edwardís subsequent alliance with Franceís greatest enemies, the Burgundys, Warwick turned his allegiances to Edwardís brother George Duke of Clarence, marrying his eldest daughter Isabel to him.
    When the plot failed, Warwick instead supported Henry VI back on to the throne, and married his youngest daughter Anne to his son Edward of Lancaster. They triumphed until the Battle of Barnet when Edward IV won, killing Warwick in battle.

    Notes
    Bland knight man is bland. I tried rewriting him to be a little less bland, but Iím not sure if I succeeded.

    I've noticed that your sheets are lately sparse in the skillset. I know that it's not necessary that everyone has 3 personal skills like in FGO, but is there any other reason to it?

    It's honestly just part of my design philosophy. I consider myself pretty stingy with Skills in the first place, since it kinda seems to me that overusing certain Skills (especially at the higher ranks - Charisma > C for example) robs them of what makes them special. Major figures obviously deserve more in the way of Skills, but that's a given anyways (more legend -> more feats -> more Skills and NPs).
    Besides the generic Skills, I also don't like to spam unique ones too much, since that also feels like selling them short somehow. I'm especially aghast at the kinds of Servants who have nothing but unique Skills, since that sorta implies that they are so far removed from the norm (or that their exceptional qualities so overshadow everything else) that they don't really feel like... I dunno, products of the Human Order anymore?

    So I tend to only give Servants Skills that they really qualify for. The less you use, the further you go - or something.

    Ah, I share that sentiment.

    The funny thing is many major figure has standard Skills (though in pretty high rank) in canon while the people who barely has a page in wikipedia always get weird Skill based on some obscure idiom.

    Speaking of Skills, what annoys me in canon is the number of redundant Skills such as Li Shuwen having "Chinese Martial Arts" but Yan Qing having "Chinese Boxing" which even has the same damn description for the most part.

    I'd say that's more because they're literally the same Skill under a different name (with maybe slightly different effects), but since having tons of different martial arts is kind of China's hat, I guess that's better than just shoving them all under "Chinese Martial Arts". I suppose its partly there to tell which particular martial art they're followers of, too (though there's no reason not to include that alongside the explanation of what the particular rank's effect is).
