    "Hero's Bride": Clever way of turning Heracles' wives into a Servant. Their bickering and the fact they can only agree on loving Heracles is amusing, while giving Deianira Marmyadose was a nice touch. I'd use that if I ever wrote up a Saber alt version of Deianira.

    I still have no idea why they gave Artoria myramidose instead of just making a saber Heracles.

    Because Marmyadose is from Arthurian canon and not used by Heracles in Greek myth?

    Closest thing I found to Marmyadose is a sword that Heracles got from Athena before he went to kill the Hydra. Even then, it was a nameless sword.

    As we have the topic can it be that despite there are many legends about Herakles that we know all legends ? As that reminds me that before HErakless were depicted with Lion pelt he werere clad in a Armor ?

    Source: Gesta Danorum.

    Class: Lancer.
    True Name: Mithotyn.
    Alignment: Lawful Evil.
    Place of Origin: Scandinavia.
    Face Claim: Kain, Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain.

    BACKGROUND: Some have said that the Norse gods were not Divine Spirits originally, but humans who ascended to such a state through the power of their sorcery and the worship of their people. It’s also said that there was a time when Odin, dishonoured by Frigga, abandoned his kingdom in shame; and that at such a time, a sorcerer of unknown origins called Mithotyn pretended to be a god and tried to seize the devotion of the Norse in order to usurp Odin’s rule.

    That is the legend, but it is not the truth.

    Some say he did not seek rulership for himself, but merely to restore proper worship of the gods by replacing indiscriminate offerings and sacrifices with tributes and appeasements directed to specific deities. They say Mithotyn sought not to replace Odin, but to ensure he didn’t greedily devour all of his followers’ faith, but instead shared it with his brethren, as was only just and proper.

    That is not the truth, but it is closer to it.

    It is true that Mithotyn sought to destroy worship in the gods, but not for power; not for himself, at least. The truth is that Mithotyn loved the idea of humanity, but despaired at the reality of human beings, vulnerable and fearful. What he wanted was to elevate all of humanity to the status of gods, for all human beings to see and acknowledge the divinity in themselves.

    He failed. His words fell on hateful ears, his actions seen as courting the wrath of the gods. He was run out of Norse lands and forced to take refuge among the Finns, but even there he was hunted and, finally, executed.

    That was not the end of his story, however, for nothing is as bitter as love turned to hate - even the hollow love of one who would be a saviour; such a force is strong enough to make even the dead wake in their graves. In his living death, all those who came near his barrow died sudden deaths. The stories aren’t clear if he slaughtered all those people himself, or if it they died from a miasma that spread from his grave; regardless, it was certain that he wanted to punish the living for his murder. It was only after his body was taken out of the mound, beheaded, and staked through the breast with a wooden spear that he was forcibly put to rest, his story ended.

    Until now.



    Parameters:

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

    Class Skills:

    Magic ResistanceA-.
    Due to a combination of his Class container, the strength of his legend as a sorcerer who defied the Norse god of magic, and his current existence as a haugbúi (“barrow-dweller”, an undead creature), Mithotyn boasts of a surprisingly high Magic Resistance for a Heroic Spirit of the Lance. However, his nature is a double-edged sword in that it renders him more vulnerable to spells that specifically draw on the power of the sacred and the divine, particularly spells that target existences understood as “undead” (even if they originate from different Thaumaturgical Foundations); against those spells, his Magic Resistance is useless.

    Personal Skills:

    Staves CreationC++.
    The Skill to create sacramental wooden staves with which blood is sprinkled on the altar and the worshippers during a blood sacrifice; as long as he has the magical energy, Mithotyn can instantly create as many of these staves as he desires. Made from the branches of the sacred tree at Uppsala, these staves are strong, sturdy, and deadly, possessing enough mystery they can stand even against the weaponry of legend wielded by Servants. They are his main weaponry and can be used even as thrown weapons, although they start disappearing shortly after leaving his hands.


    Norse rites of worship are intrinsically tied to Mithotyn’s legend, but not as acts of devotion to the gods; rather, regardless of his real motive, they were acts of opposition. As such, the staves he creates have inherent anti-Divinity properties, being especially effective against enemies associated with the gods in proportion to the level of association.

    Undead WalkerB.
    A Skill denoting one’s existence as a draugr or haugbúi, a revenant. In Mithotyn’s case, it’s been weakened by the uncertain nature of his barrow-curse in the legends: did he really return as an undead killer, or were the deaths caused entirely by sorcery that lingered after his death? As such, he doesn’t have any of the powers commonly associated with the undead in Norse tales, such as bewitching eyes or shapeshifting, or even the monstrous strength of such creatures. However, myth and truth both agree that his power lasted beyond death; thus, Mithotyn is granted an undead body that allows him to continue fighting with no penalties regardless of the state of his body and even after suffering fatal wounds, as if he had the Battle Continuation Skill at Rank A.

    Witchcraft B.
    Knowledge of seidr, the shamanistic magic of the Norse people, even older than the Rune Magic of the god Odin. It teaches a wide variety of spells, but its specialisations are blessings, curses, weather control, divination, communion with spirits, and illusions. While Mithotyn’s full sorcerous might isn’t displayed in the Lancer Class, he is still a powerful mage, capable of feats that would amaze any modern magus; however, his magic has been warped to fit the legend of “Mithotyn, the barrow-dweller who defied Odin”, and thus deeds such as “saving your Master from life-threatening injuries” might prove themselves beyond him at the most inopportune times.

    Noble Phantasms:

    Terror Zone
    A Land the Gods Left Behind, A Sky of Cloudy Fears

    “Even in his death his abominations were made manifest, for those who came nigh his barrow were cut off by a kind of sudden death; and after his end, he spread such pestilence that he seemed almost to leave a filthier record in his death than in his life: it was as though he would extort from the guilty a punishment for his slaughter.”
    - Saxo Grammaticus, Gesta Danorum, Book I (trans. Oliver Elton)

    Type:
    Barrier.
    Rank: A.
    Range: 1-10.
    Max. Targets: 50.

    By invoking this Noble Phantasm’s true name, Mithotyn recreates the spear* which was used to forcibly put his barrow-curse to rest (the real reason why he is summoned in the Lancer Class) and releases said curse once more unto the world.
    * Feel free to imagine this scene as him pulling the spear from his breast Utena-style.

    What Terror Zone does is create a Bounded Field composed entirely of curses made manifest through Mithotyn’s magic. While inside this area, which covers over a dozen metres, all living things are targeted by his rage and hatred and suffer continuous damage as the mass of curses attacks their life forces directly. Regular humans will die almost instantly as all their life-sustaining processes shut down, and even magi won’t fare much better (even the strongest Circuits can’t reject that much energy all at once). Servants can somewhat resist the damage depending on their END and MGI Parameters and assorted Skills, but unless they have some form of immunity to curses, even they can’t withstand such an assault for long as the energy that composes their spiritual bodies is continuously shaved off.


    “Face claim” for Terror Zone: High Lord Wolnir, Dark Souls III.

    Those who survive the initial onslaught will soon discover Terror Zone has another aspect to it, one reflective of the uncertain nature of Mithotyn’s barrow-curse in the legends: did he really return as an undead killer, or were the deaths caused entirely by sorcery that lingered after his death? Just as it’s impossible to know if those deaths were caused directly by Mithotyn or by his curse, it’s impossible to know if Terror Zone is a mass of curses or Mithotyn himself; thus, the Bounded Field created by this Noble Phantasm is simultaneously considered a part of the existence known as Servant Mithotyn. While inside this area, Mithotyn can display an ability close to True Magic by sidestepping in between space (in practical terms, teleporting), which allows him to both evade and deliver attacks at a speed that can be matched by few even among heroes of legend. Even abilities that sense his presence can’t help; the entire Bounded Field is perceived as if it were Mithotyn himself.

    When fighting in this manner, Mithotyn usually wields the spear which once defeated his barrow-curse (although he can also use it in combination with one of his staves at the same time). This spear is a deadly weapon that is nearly on the level of a demonic sword of legend in terms of piercing and striking power; moreover, as the physical manifestation of the legend of his killings, it can’t be destroyed as long as Servant Mithotyn still exists. However, exactly because of those legends, it can be stolen and used against him; not as a way of invoking Terror Zone, but as a weapon, one that would be extremely lethal to him.

    Mithotyn: Cool sheet for a figure I've never heard of before. His goal of elevating all humanity to gods makes me think of a dark version of Kirschtaria. The NP's concept is a fairly standard "death-curse" deal but you did a good job fleshing it out with the various aspects. I will say however there's some italics text in the true name that isn't displaying properly.

    realcasually: I mean I was working on bran before and I had just oh so happened to be procrastinating in finishing him until the comp. It literally just took a small alteration to his first noble phantasm and one skill and bam he was ready to be put to pasture.

    Rudolph: No Etrian Odyssey reference, 0/10




    Mithotyn: Probably the best example that I've seen of a Servant wielding what killed them as their NP. Including official Servants.

    Bride of the Great Hero: At least we found some way to work in the other ones. Pretty interesting integration of them too, if unexpected. I actually have something similar planned, but not necessarily for this contest. Also, I just find it funny they even considered Rudolph period. "callously strides the path of a heartless killer"? Very presumptuous of you, lady.

    Mithotyn: Legacy of Kain FC. 10/10, don't even need to read the rest of the sheet. Did anyway. Terror Zone sounds fun.

    Would it help my case if I told you I have no idea what you're talking about?
    Do you like jazz short stories? Do you want something to distract from making Servants? Do you wish the idea of Shirou Kotomine didn't immediately bring edgelords to mind? Well, I can't promise it's good, but some would disagree with me.
