    I considered posting this on the Create a Servant Contest thread at first, but ultimately chose otherwise. My Oedipus was a better match for that month's prompt, after all. Also, I wanted to get some actual feedback on this one.

    KEYWORDS


    Genpei War

    A major event in Japanese history that occurred during the late stages of the Heian Period (around the 12th Century). A civil war promoted by the Minamoto and Taira clans, fought with the supremacy over Japanese politics at stake.

    For decades before the conflict, the Taira clan monopolized a dominant position within the Imperial court. This was in part achieved by the use of their influence to carry out a purge of any political rivals. Such practice made many victims among the Minamoto clan, which naturally created anti-Taira sentiments among its members.

    The last drop was the bending of the rules of succession in order to enthrone an Emperor that was aligned with Taira’s interests. This of course incurred the displeasure of not only the Minamoto, but also of other members of the Imperial house. When the Minamoto answered to a call to arms from another candidate to the throne that felt injured by the Taira and sought compensation, a war became inevitable.

    Incidentally, although the Taira were ultimately defeated, internal conflict among the Minamoto nearly cost them everything.

    Shirabyoushi

    A Japanese folkloric dance that originated at some point of the 12th century. Also, the general term for the entertainers who performed such dance. Traditionally performed by women and children, but adult men were also known to play the role of a shirabyoushi on occasion. Although referred as a "folklore", this was a culture more popular among the nobility than the common people.

    Shirabyoushi performers were easily recognizable for their outfits, composed by a tate-eboshi hat, white suikan robes and a red hakama (with an optional addition of a kawahori hand fan or a ceremonial tachi sword). Although this attire somewhat resembles that of a male shinto priest, it was equally worn by men and women alike – so this could be regarded as a form of cross-dressing. In addition, shirabyoushi often covered their entire face and neck with a white-colored powder, but that would later cause them to be associated with the geisha, who also wore a similar type of makeup.

    Incidentally, it has been said that the origins of the shirabyoushi dance can be traced back to the ancient miko kagura traditions. In the days of old, shinto priestesses would dance before temples and other spiritual grounds in order to invite divine inspiration. Supposedly, these dances were ceremonies to induce a trance and obtain an oracle, but they would occasionally result in a divine possession. There are accounts of the possessed priestesses undergoing some sort of physical transformation, with sex change being counted among the most extreme examples. The cross-dressing of the shirabyoushi would thus be an allusion to such a phenomenon.


    CLASS SKILLS

    Territory Creation: A+
    The technical skill to build up an advantageous encampment to oneself as a magus. Thanks to this skill that allows to create in the shortest time a workshop that displays the very best effectiveness on any kind of terrain condition, Caster boasts the greatest advantage in regards to defensive fights among all Servants. At A Rank, it is possible to mold a "temple" that exceeds a workshop.

    To be accurate, since the orientation of her magecraft is different, the territory that she creates is something different from a traditional "workshop". Furthermore, hers is something extremely instantaneous: as soon as she begins dancing, her immediate surroundings will be covered by a powerful bounded-field that redefine its interior as “the stage of a shirabyoushi”, “the temple of a dancing priestess”.

    Item Construction: E
    The technical skill to produce devices that carry magical power. It makes possible to manufacture various tools, from items and mystic codes meant for battle to daily necessities. However, this skill takes time for the production and supply of ingredients. E Rank denotes the proficiency of an apprentice.

    The range of items that she can actually manufacture is extremely small, mostly limited to the traditional accessories of a shirabyoushi.

    if a Saber
    Magic Resistance: B
    The capacity to negate or abate the effects of magecraft. Negates magecraft invoked with an aria of three verses or less. It is difficult to injure her even with high-thaumaturgy.

    Riding: -
    She does not possess this skill.


    PERSONAL SKILLS

    Goddess Metamorphosis: A+
    A skill for metamorphosing from a human to a god. The highest form of Shapeshift. The user receives a festival of powerful buffs upon activation, but there will inevitably be some sort of demerit afterwards. In her case, she will be temporarily rendered out of combat (put in a condition of being on the verge of death).

    A possibility hidden deep within the miko kagura arts. Obtaining a more direct form of heavenly assistance by means of divine possession. However, since this depends heavily on the whims of the gods, she has no discretionary control over this skill’s activation and its use only becomes possible after obtaining consecutive successes in LCK checks.

    Self-Preservation: C
    A talent for avoiding dangerous situations. In exchange for having nearly no fighting strength herself, she can escape from most crises so long her Master is safe.

    Shamanism (Medium): A
    An idiosyncrasy-like mystery. A Thaumaturgical Foundation rooted on local customs and folklore. Generally regarded as a minor school of magecraft.

    Miko kagura. Strictly speaking, rather than a genuine magecraft, this is better described as an art form that incorporated mystery within itself. Although it cannot directly interfere with nature, its capacity of mental interference is high and it works as an extremely powerful fascination effect towards those endowed with Divinity. All the phenomena that Shizuka appears to bring about are in fact being caused by the divine spirits that became enchanted by her dance.

    Shizuyashizu”: B
    Verse of longing. The sublimation of the anecdotes regarding her performance at the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu. By reciting a poem about a lost love, she can invite feelings of pity from the targets and make them temporarily lose their will to fight.

    Weapons

    Ceremonial SwordUnsigned
    A nameless tachi blade. Since this is a ceremonial item, it has no edge and cannot be employed as a proper weapon. That being said, it is endowed with mystical features that support her spellcasting and it obtains the properties of a divine instrument when her Goddess Metamorphosis is activated.

    NOBLE PHANTASM

    NP name
    太神楽・集中豪雨の舞 (roughly; great divine entertainment, dance of cloudburst)

    DaikaguraShuuchuu-Gouu no Mai
    Rank: B++
    Type: Anti-Fortress

    Shizuka Gozen’s trump card. Artistic beauty that can entice even the heavens (gods). This is both an esoterica of the shirabyoushimiko kagura dancing arts and a sublimation of the anecdotes about her performance at the Shinsen-en temple.

    A weather manipulation ability by means of ceremonial dance. By displaying a performance specifically meant to attract the favor of gods of wind and lightning (FuujinRaijin), she can induce all sorts of climate change. Rain is a matter of course, but she can also produce whirlwinds and thunderstorms. Furthermore, by bringing out maximum output and confining it to a relatively small area, it is possible to cause a natural disaster that can level an entire city.

    Background

    BACKGROUND

    Shizuka Gozen. A legendary individual from the late Heian, early Kamakura period of Japan. Extolled as the “greatest shirabyoushi of Japan”, she was also known as a companion of the tragic hero Minamoto no Yoshitsune. Although her name appears in historical documents such as the “Azuma Kagami”, mentions about her are scarce and lacking in detail so her historicity cannot be fully ascertained.

    Shizuka’s exact date of birth is unknown. There are also diverging opinions about her homeland, but a popular theory about her being born in the Tango province earned her a place among the “Seven Princesses of Tango”. At any rate, she supposedly came into this world as the daughter of Iso no Zenji (who is often regarded as one of the founders of the shirabyoushi tradition) and was trained by her mother into a dancer surpassing even herself.

    After becoming a fully fledged shirabyoushi, Shizuka moved to the Imperial capital of Kyoto, where she earned a living by performing for nobles during parties and important ceremonies. Despite her outstanding skills, she remained mostly anonymous during this early stage of her career. It would literally take a natural disaster for her to attain fame.

    As the story goes, the city of Kyoto once suffered with a long period of dry weather. In order to escape from this dilemma, Retired Emperor Go-Shirakawa gathered 100 monks and 100 shirabyoushi at the temple of Shinsen-en for the sake of performing one large ceremony of rainmaking. The prayers of the monks went unanswered. Out of the 100 shirabyoushi, 99 had danced to exhaustion to no avail. And yet, as soon as Shizuka (the last one left standing) entered the stage and began her performance, heavy clouds appeared in the sky and a gentle shower soon followed. It has been said that, upon seeing such spectacle, Emperor Go-Shirakawa couldn’t help but mutter “is she a child of the gods?

    Later, Shizuka was awesomely rewarded by the Imperial house for her achievement and granted the title of “Best (shirabyoushi) of Japan”. Still, the true turning point of her life had yet to come. One day, she received an offer to join a certain noble’s retinue. Said noble had supposedly witnessed her performance in Shinsen-en and became fascinated by her beauty. The name of the noble was Yoshitsune, the famous general of the Minamoto clan.

    Forlorn Feelings

    Upon joining Yoshitsune's retinue, Shizuka quickly found her way into his inner circle. Although the exact nature of their relationship is up to debate (popular views regards that she was his favorite concubine, but there are diverging opinions), it is undeniable that she was one of his most trusted confidants – maybe surpassing even that Benkei. They shared happy times together, but those unfortunately were not meant to last.

    Soon after the Genpei War, Yoshitsune had a falling out with his brother Yorimoto (the newly appointed Kamakura Shougun) and had to flee the capital in order to avoid the inevitable political purge. Shizuka was among the few retainers who followed after Yoshitsune at first. However, an unfortunate accident caused her to be separated from the rest of the group and captured by the pursuers sent by Yorimoto. She would then be sent back to Kyoto and placed under house arrest.

    Time passed and news finally arrived that Yoshitsune had died while trying to avoid capture. Shizuka was of course devastated by this development, but she couldn't openly mourn Yoshitsune's death without incurring Yorimoto's wrath. Before Shizuka could sort out her feelings, an Imperial order came demanding that she danced during the ceremony of reinauguration of the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu temple. Although the logic of it escaped her, the true intentions behind that order was quite evident: now that Yoshitsune was dead, they wanted Shizuka to demonstrate her fealty to the Shogun and his authority.

    Refusing an Imperial order was out of question, but her pride and love for Yoshitsune demanded that Shizuka protested against Yorimoto's tyranny in some manner. Thus, when it was her turn to dance at the ceremony, she took the opportunity to sing a poem of her own authorship. Although the meaning of said poem was lost to most, those few privy to her personal circumstances quickly figured out that it was a lamentation for Yoshitsune. Supposedly, Yorimoto became furious at the audacity and wanted to have Shizuka executed on the spot. However, his wife Houjou Masako became sympathetic to her plight as a woman and convinced him to spare her.

    Shizuka Gozen's ultimate fate is unknown. Although it is generally accepted that she was eventually released to her mother's custody (thanks in part to both Masako's support and Iso no Zenji's own political influence), there are diverging theories about what happened to her after that. Some say that she returned to her homeland in order to live in peace. Others that she joined a Buddhist temple as a nun, spending the rest of her days mourning Yoshitsune. And others tell that she took her own life as soon as she was free, determined to follow after her beloved in the other world.

    Shizuka Gozen: What a shame she couldn't be featured in our monthly contest because I feel she'd be a good contender. But anyway, I loved this idea of a Shizuka closer to her dancer roots. The fact that her entire power revolves around enchanting people with her dancing skills, to the point that this is a magecraft in itself, is amazing. (And besides, this picture is so cute ;-; ) This was a good sheet to read.

    Has anybody posted a Charles Darwin sheet, and if so would someone be willing to provide a link to it? If not, would somone be willing to create one? Personally, I would enjoy seeing one wherein he is favored by Gaia in some way, due to the fact that his theories revolve around the natural gradual changes expereinced by Earth's Non-human inhabitants throughout the eons, ideally without human intervention. Also, when one is made, would someone be willing to alert me, so that I can read it?

    Rider of the Anishinaabe

    "Heyoo Master! I am Rider, and these two are Chibi and Ani. Say hi, guys!"
    "Woof!"
    "Cawk!"



    Class: Rider
    Alignment: Chaotic/good
    Region: America
    Height: 151cm
    Weight: 45kg
    Likes: soft breezes, her brother, humans
    Dislikes: snakes, water, being alone
    Talent: trickery
    Armaments: spear, dagger
    Natural Enemy: Mishibizhiw

    stats

    Str: C
    End: C
    Agi: B
    Mna: B
    Lck: A
    NP: A

    Skills


    class skills

    Magic Resistance(B): Cancel spells with a chant below three verses. Even if targeted by High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals, it is difficult for Rider to be affected.

    Riding(A+): Creatures on the level of Phantasmal Beast and Divine Beast can be used as mounts. However, that does not apply to members of the Dragon Kind.

    personal skills

    Divinity(B): The level of one's aptitude as a Divine spirit. Rider is one of four sons from what would come to be interpreted as spirits of directions. She has a human mother, and E-bangishimog ("In the West"), a spirit father.

    Trickery(A): A Skill marking the user as pertaining to the Trickster Archetype that is found on a variety of forms around the world. This skill will grant different effects depending on the specifics of the users legend. In Rider's case, it allows for the nullification of effects like "instinct" or "Discernment of the Poor" and makes it more likely that the enemy will believe her lies and fall for her tricks.

    Shapeshift(C): A Skill that refers to both borrowing bodies and appearance change. While Rider is generally portrayed in a human form, she noted as sometimes appearing as a Birb or Rabbit, which grants her this skill.

    Mana Burst(Wind)(B): A version of Mana Burst that infuses weapons or the users body with Magical Energy of the wind element. As Rider is the offspring of a Wind spirit, this skill comes naturally to her.



    Noble phantasm


    Brother Wolf Dead Spirit
    Chibiabos Moqwaio

    rank: Anti-unit, A

    Rider's first Noble Phantasm, a representation of her unbreakable bond with her adopted brother. It allows her to summon the spirit of a wolf to fight alongside her.
    Because of the specifics of her legend, Rider is incapable of summoning the real Chibiabos as his soul belongs in the underworld to which she doesn't have access. However, the Wolf spirit summoned in his place is still a high ranking Phantasmal beast capable of holding against other heroic spirits.
    The wolf spirit has various useful skills such as the ability to command water as well as being capable of paralyzing the enemies with his howls, but it seems that he lacks the powers the true Chibiabos would have over the souls of the dead.

    The Great Thunderbird
    Animiki Binese

    rank: Anti-Army, A+

    Rider's second Noble Phantasm and trump card. Just like the Phoenix is considered to be the strongest being in the skies of the East, so is the Thunderbird herald as the king in the West.
    He is considered a Divene Phantasmal Beast, and has an amount of mystery so great as to be able of withstanding a Rank B Noble Phantasm with only scratches. With the enormous power of their wings, merely flapping them is enough to gerenate storms capable of blowing away an entire Army.
    Furthermore, the Thunderbird, as the name would imply, is capable of summoning powerful divine lightning with their claws and beak, which Rider can combine with her Mana Burst(Wind) to give her attacks great power.



    Background


    Rider is Nanabozho, sometimes called Wenabozho or Menabozho instead. She is a benevolent culture hero and Trickster figure of the Anishinaabe tribes of North America. She is associated with rabbits and is sometimes referred to as the Great Hare (Misabooz), although she is rarely depicted as taking the physical form of a rabbit.
    Rider is the offspring of the West Wind with a human woman and, since her mother died when she was a baby, was raised by her grandmother Nokomis. While she was a only child, Rider had four adopted brothers. The most important of Rider's brother figures is Chibiabos, Rider's inseparable companion.
    She was sent to Earth by Gitche Manitou to teach the Ojibwe. One of her first tasks was to name all the plants and animals. Rider is considered to be the inventor of fishing and hieroglyphs, and is famous as a shapeshifter and a co-creator of the world.
    In one of her adventures, Chibiabos was murdered by water spirits (usually identified as Water Panthers or Horned Serpents), touching off a violent chain of events that included the destruction of the earth by flood. Afterwards, Rider accepted that she could not bring her brother back to life, so Chibiabos became ruler of the underworld.



    personality


    Rider is a trickster figure and, as such, can be a bit of a rascal. But unlike trickster figures in some tribes, she does not model immoral and seriously inappropriate behavior. Rider is a virtuous hero and a dedicated friend and teacher of humanity.
    Though she may behave in mischievous, foolish, and humorous ways in the course of her teaching, Rider would never commit crimes or disrespects Native culture. She is viewed with great respect and affection by Anishinabe people, and retribute this with twice as much affection to the rest of humanity.
    While it can be hard to notice, it seems that the main reason for her to allow herself to be summoned is that she still holds some hope she will be able to meet her beloved brother again.

    turns out i missed the deadline for the february servant contest so i just never posted this, but i guess i'll just post it here now instead

    "Ah, you are my Master. I am so happy to meet you. You may call me Ruler, or Galatea, or whatever you wish to, should it please you."


    True Name: Galatea
    Class: Ruler
    Origin: Greek Myth
    Alignment: True Neutral

    Likes: Whatever Master likes.
    Dislikes: Whatever Master dislikes.
    Talents: All
    Natural Enemy: None
    Armaments: Perfection
    Catalyst: Ivory, Love


    Height/Weight: Varies
    Gender: Female
    Attribute: Star

    Parameters
    STR: C
    END: EX
    AGI: C
    MGI: B
    LCK:
    NP: EX

    Skills
    Class Skills
    Magic Resistance:: A
    Due to being a Divine Construct and having the favor of an Olympian, Ruler is, through no choice of her own, 'protected' from all but the strongest of magecrafts and magics, though those around her are not so lucky. Instead of a defense or an evasion, it's more along the lines of the attacks simply missing her or being ignored...

    Personal Skills
    Self-Evolution: EX
    Surpassing Self Modification, it's a skill that reforms oneself. In order to overcome any kind of objective in the way of accomplishing one's goals, they keep evolving in mere seconds. However, it has the demerit of having a lower mark than Self Modification concerning its applicability to anything more than the specialization towards the user's goals. In the case of Ruler, said 'goal' is the pleasing of her Master by any means necessary, more specifically by presentin herself as the 'perfect woman'. In a way, it's an embodiment of the fact that she lacks true 'goals' herself, only existing to make others happy.

    Divine Core of the Goddess: C
    A composite Skill that comprises the Skill Divinity, preserves the absoluteness of the mind and the body, repels all mental interference, prevents the body from growth and prevents the figure from change no matter how much calories are absorbed... which has been weakened and overridden somewhat by her Self-Evolution Skill. The objective of 'Suit Master's tastes' takes priority over her existence as an 'Direct Creation of a Goddess', and so she has lowered the rank of this Skill herself in order to allow for the modification of her body if it would please Master.

    Divine Purpose: C
    A Skill similar to Imperial Privilege, brought about due to the nature of her existence. Similar to Self-Evolution, it is out of Ruler's control. It enables her to perform astounding feats outside of what should be possible for her... but only if it would facilitate her becoming Master's 'ideal woman'.

    Manifestation of Beauty: A
    It goes without saying that Ruler is, truly, a being of impossible beauty, like a Goddess herself...


    Lore
    Galatea was once a statue crafted of ivory by the sculptor Pygmalion, as his 'perfect woman'. On his way home one night, after praying to Aphrodite for a woman to love him, he was approached by prostitutes, disgusting him to his very core. Aphrodite, amused by this man who was both so desperate for a woman's love yet so disgusted by womanhood, decided it was the perfect moment for her to conduct a little 'experiment', though some would call it divine intervention.

    Upon returning home, Pygmalion, so pitiful, began to cry and started kissing Galatea, miserable that no woman could match his 'perfect creation'. Soon, however, he realized that Galatea didn't feel like an ivory statue... she felt like she was made of flesh, warm, living flesh. When he pulled himself away and took a good look at her, he realized that she was alive! Aphrodite had given him what he wanted, a 'perfect woman'... by his definition of it. One who was seen, not heard, a gorgeous trophy wife with none of the aspects of womanhood that so disgusted him-- no desires besides pleasing her beloved, no opinions about how pathetic he was... no desires of the sexual nature, and in fact lacking the anatomy with which to act on any desires if they would exist, no need to eat, or sleep, or breathe. A 'perfect' subservient woman, to whom he was now, lest he risk Aphrodite's wrath for not accepting her 'gift', forced to spend his life 'married' to.

    It didn't take long for him to regret his lot in life even more than he already had. He was now a laughing stock, 'the man who had to build a wife'. He had to lay there every night, knowing that an emotionless, unthinking being, not a person, was in bed beside him, not blinking, not tired in the slightest. He was married to a woman who was so gorgeous that he couldn't help but desire her physically, but upon whom he couldn't act on those desires. This was his life, until the day he died.


    Summoned as a Servant, her Master becomes Galatea's new 'Beloved'. You see, as she'd only been brought into existence to serve Pygmalion, summoning her, i.e. 'bringing her into existence again', in her mind equates to her now only existing to serve the Summoner. Thus, she becomes the loyal, unquestioning 'perfect bride' of her Master. Even her appearance will subtly alter to fit the desires of her Master, down to her height and weight (within reason, of course). Though at first she'll seem cold, artificial, detached, like an automated phone line more than a person, over time one can help her develop desires of her own... especially if they treat her as an equal or a friend, instead of a 'thing' like a certain sculptor did.


    Noble Phantasm
    Pygmalion
    May Your Myriad Desires Be Given Form

    Rank: EX
    Type: Undefined
    In the story of Pygmalion, the sculptor crafted Galatea from ivory, intending her to be his perfect woman, the ideal no true woman could ever even hope to approach. Aphrodite made her real. Her very existence is an impossibility, of the sort only the true magics of gods can make happen. And, in her life, she made further impossibilities occur, as if some of that 'magic' was leftover within her. That is, she and Pygmalion had children, despite such a thing being impossible for a variety of reasons.

    Essentially, Galatea herself is a Noble Phantasm, a Divine Construct, Aphrodite's magnum opus... a wish granting device perhaps surpassing even the Grail. She is to a Philosopher's Stone what a tesseract is to a cube, so to speak, beyond the understanding of any modern mage, and even that of the most learned of ancient ones. The issue is, of course, the indirectness of this. She does not actively grant wishes, and in fact has no control over when or how it manifests. Additionally, the 'wish' itself is not "What does the Master wish for?", rather it is "What would be loved most by the Master?".

    Galatea: I've seen a few Galatea sheets here, but this is definitely the creepiest. You did a good job showing how creepy and inhuman the idea of a "perfect woman" is. It's hopeful that she can actually develop desires of her own though, instead of being a total robot locked in "must please husbando" mode. She seems like she'd be a fascinating character to explore in a Grail War fic.

    I did notice somewhat of a contradiction between her lore and NP sections though. In the former you state that Pygmalion was unable to act on his desires until the day he died, whereas her NP description says she managed to have children with him, which would presumably necessitate such a thing. Since her having children was noted to be "impossible" I guess maybe she did it in some way other than having sex, but I'm curious if you thought that through. (Her being able to remodel her body also kind of contradicts the "no sexual anatomy" limitation, unless that wasn't an ability she had in life).

    Now, lemme say this: wow! What an amazing Galatea sheet this one is! Just like Royd said, you've perfectly captured that "weird" atmosphere of what would be to have a constantly evolving perfect doll as a Servant. It felt like something straight outta some Black Mirror episode. Very nice indeed.

    That Galatea sheet hits like a giant metal fist. It really is in-character for the Greek gods to "gift" an unfeeling, obviously inhuman spouse to the forerunner of every guy with an unironic waifu. Props for making me feel deeply uncomfortable.

    Unrelated: The way things have been going, I won't be surprised if Galatea shows up as a robot girl with plasma cannons and the like.

    Skills


    class skills

    Magic Resistance(EX): Grants protection against magical effects. it's extremely extremely high rank comes about because of her unwavering hope. However, since it is just averting (evading) the magecraft, fundamentally only Saver will be saved against a wide-range magic attack.

    Charisma(A+): A composite Skill consisting of a person's charm as well as the natural talent to command or unify an army or country. At this point, it is no longer popularity or skill, but rather a kind of spell (curse) in itself. An army led by her will have a tremendous increase in abilities. A rare talent, and an ability inherent to Servants of the Saver class.

    Counter Hero(B): Reduces the parameters of the statistics of "heroes" that the Servant faces in combat. It is featured as a Class Skill of the Saver Class. At Rank B, it reduces all of the opponent’s parameters by two ranks. It’s weaker against anti-heroes, reducing their parameters by one rank.

    personal skills

    Ephemeral Dream(EX): A Skill that represents a lifeform born from illusions because of an individual’s desire. Because she was born from one’s desire, she possesses a powerful force, but at the same time, she is not permanently approved as a lifeform allowed for existence.

    Infinite Magic Energy Supply(A): A literally infinite supply of magic energy received from the inherited dream of all Magical girls, with the only limit to it being the amount Saver can withstand at any given time.

    Absolute purity(A): A Skill denoting Saver as embodying the ideal and perfect Magical Girl. It allows her to be unaffected by any and all external corrupting forces, as well as the ability to purity them. It can also work as a type of Healing Magecraft.



    Noble phantasm


    Infinite Prisma Causeway
    Unlimited Elpis Cosmos

    rank: Anti-Despair, EX

    A Noble Phantasm encompassing the dreams of every magical girl, as well a the nature of hope that they represent. It was once called
    Infinite Creation of Illusions
    Unlimited Prisma Codes
    , but it's nature ended up being fundamentally changed after Saver was reborn, so it received a new designation.
    It uses Saver's saint graph as a anchor to Manifest a
    Reality Marble
    Temporary Singurality
    cutoff from the regular world , inside of it she is able summon an infinite number of Magical girls as
    Echoes
    Silhouettes
    to fight along side her. Furthermore, by borowing their power, Saver can reach beyond any of them could individually and become a perfect existance similar in nature to a true divine spirit. The mana output generated in this form is big enough that it easily surpass that of a holy grail, and can even rival the light of the Planet itself or even the Law of cycles.
    However, as it is something design to Save the world, the full power of this Noble Phantasm cannot be used against opponents of a lower rank them Saver. Outside of World ending situations, proper use of it is limited to mostly just a power Hit or energy beam.



    Background

    Saver is a very unusual Heroic Spirit. She first came into existance as a response to the desires of a certain group of people. However, because the desires who birthed her where originally obsessive and impure, she became a treat and had to be put down by the Master of Chadea and their Servants.
    Her original form died, but she still continue to exist as the concept the was born to realize had not become true yet. As such, her
    Character Concept
    Personal Origin
    Was preserved in the form of a "Seed", something still in its infancy, that maybe someday will take flight with it's growth recognizing many and healing many.
    After a while she developed enough to manifest in a physical form, which resemble the old one since it was the only image engraved into her at that point. Sometime latter, once she became able to actually form coherent thoughs of her own, she was able to reclaim her past and understand her origins. She then decided to call herself "New Testament", as a promise to be better this time around, and came to aid Chaldea on their adventures in hopes of making up for the trouble her past self caused.



    personality


    The process that allowed her rebirth also left her as a blank slate. For a while, Saver was not able to even form coherent though patterns and her existence was more or less guided by the echoes of her past self, as well as the voices of all Magical girls supporting her.
    Although she eventually she evolved to point where she could form a self-identity, she is still rather inexperienced. One could easily define her with two simple words: innocent and naive.
    While she has access to the memories of innumerable magical girls, she hasn't lived through them and as such can't understand them fully. This will get progressively better as she develops a personality of her own, and she can possibly even become something beyond even her current self one day, although it's uncertain.

    STR: C
    END: C
    AGI: C
    MGI: D
    LUK: A
    NP: A+

    Personality
    Ching Shih tries to put on a persona of a patient, quiet, and ruthless woman that knows exactly how to take what she wants and has a business woman-like approach in her dealings with people. She is a very calculating individual who isn't above using dirty tricks, sabotage, and seduction to get what she wants. Unlike most pirates she has a strong dislike for unruliness and pointless chaos and will not tolerate rule breakers (especially if she was the one who set the rule in the first place), as such she tends to come off as incredibly strict, violently so if need be.

    In her downtime, she can show an attitude more typical of a pirate. Her well developed serious and orderly persona will give way so long as she is not in combat or a tactical situation, allowing her to express a rather carefree attitude and drinks heavily. Ching can be genuinely warm and gentle to those she truly cares about, and she is also rather flirtatious towards both men and women, and enjoys sleeping around. Ching Shih also has a thing for young boys but doesn’t openly admit it.


    Lore
    Ching Shih was a pirate leader who terrorized the China Seas during the Jiaqing Emperor period of the Qing dynasty in the early 19th-century. She commanded over 1,800 vessels manned by around 80,000 pirates. She entered into conflict with the major nations, such as the British Empire, the Portuguese Empire, and the Qing dynasty. Under her rule, Chinese pirates became invincible, resisting attacks from every major naval power of her time.

    Little is known about the early life of Ching Shih except that she was born in the Guangdong province of China under the name “Shih Yang” and that she worked as a prostitute in a floating brothel in Guangzhou, going by the name “Shih Heang Koo”. She was the favored prostitute of the pirate Zheng Yi who commanded the fleet of ships known as the Red Flag Fleet. Zheng Yi fell in love with Ching Shih and organized a raid to plunder the brothel and asked his men to bring her back to him as his portion of the loot and proposed to her. She accepted on the condition that she would have power in his organization and receive an equal share of the loot.

    Over the next six years with her help, the Red Flag Fleet went from 200 ships to 1,800 strong, and she and her husband formed the Cantonese Pirate Coalition with the pirate Wu Shi'er. In 1807, Zheng Yi would get caught in a typhoon and die after being married to Ching Shih for six years. Not wanting to return to her life as a prostitute, Ching Shih was quick to seize the opportunity to assume control of the Red Flag Fleet and managed to maneuver herself into a place of power and took control over the entire organization with the help of her adopted son Chang Pao, who she took on as her lover.

    She proved to be a strict, regimented leader once she took control, and as the new leader she focused on business and military matters while Chang Pao took on the daily going ons of the ships. Under her rule the Red Flag Fleet flourished and their incredible strength and power enabled them to pillage and raid every town and ship between Macao to Canton. The fleet took over many coastal villages, establishing an ad-hoc government of sorts and sometimes imposed taxes or levies on the villages under their control. Not even landlocked villages were safe, as she would simply use shallow-bottom boats to travel up river and attack them that way, including defeating whatever armies came against them. Stories from that time described her as ruthless — not just to her victims and enemies, but to her crew, as executions were quite common.

    The Chinese government tried numerous times to put a stop to the Red Flag Fleet, but each time failed to defeat Ching Shih and her armada. Even when the government sought the aid of the British and Portugese navies they couldn’t break the Red Flag Fleet’s pirate operation within the South China Sea. Eventually the emperor himself offered amnesty to all pirates in the hope that it would put an end to Ching Shih’s reign of terror. Ching Shih was clever enough to know that she couldn’t keep this up forever and began negotiations with Zhang Bai about the fleet’s surrender, and in the end the Red Flag Fleet would be able to keep all of their loot and any of their pirates that wanted to join the Imperial Navy were allowed to do so.

    Ching Shih’s pirate came to an end and was given the aristocratic title of “Lady by Imperial Decree” as part of the negotiations. Chang Pao’s status as her adopted son would be annulled by Zhang Bai and he would also marry Ching Shih to Chang Pao. After her retirement from piracy, she would run a successful gambling house and brothel enterprise. She would have children with Chang Pao, and would pass away in 1844 at the age of 69 in her bed, surrounded by her family.


    Skills
    Class Skills:

    Magic Resistance: D
    Grants protection against magical effects. Differently 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: B
    Denoting the ability to ride mounts and vehicles. 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. Also, if limited to ships, the Riding Skill will improve by one rank.

    Personal Skills:

    Gale of Plunder: EX
    A Skill that indicates the excellence of pirates. Ching Shih is considered to be the most successful pirate to ever live and at the height of her power she controlled more than 1,800 ships and had the manpower of 80,000 sailors, which was one of the biggest naval armies in the history of the world. She used her massive fleet for robbing and taxing towns and plundering ships throughout the coast of the South China Sea.

    Golden Rule: B
    A Skill that refers to the measurement of one's fortune to acquire wealth. Ching Shih herself was born destitute, but has a natural talent for collecting money. Even after retiring from piracy she lived as an incredibly wealthy noblewoman with a vast fortune.

    Honor of Pirates: C
    A unique Skill derived from a pirate's peculiar sense of values. Low ranking Mental Pollution, Bravery, Battle Continuation and others have been combined. Ching Shih receives this from her strict code of law established among the Red Flag Fleet which was heavily enforced.

    Voyager of the Storm: A++
    Talent that lets one sail objects recognized as ships. Because the ability as a group leader is also necessary, this unique Skill also has the effects of both Charisma and Military Tactics. At her height, Ching Shih commanded one of the largest naval armies in the history of the world.


    Noble Phantasms
    Red Flag Fleet
    The Scourge of the South China Sea

    Rank: A+
    Type: Anti-Army
    Range: 20 - 200
    Maximum Number of Targets: 800

    This Noble Phantasm represents Ching Shih's personal armada of pirates consisting of over 1,800 ships and 80,000 men that terrorized the seas of South China, The Red Flag Fleet. The fleet she helped grow from a small group of pirates to an international threat that took on Britain, China, and Portugal. She can summon the infamous pirate fleet, and she can summon any individual ship at will when she needs them. Each ship is a ghost ship in a literal sense of the word, acting autonomously as if they were fully crewed and will perform tasks that the crew would normally do on Ching's orders. While the ships are intended to travel on water, they can also travel on land and sky, but consumption of magical energy becomes heavy in this case. To summon the full force of the fleet she must invoke the True Name of the Noble Phantasm, at which point all ships will materialize around Ching, typically in the air if there is no body of water nearby. Upon her order all ships open fire and the enemy is bombarded by overwhelming firepower. The combined might of the fleet's weaponry is incredibly powerful and would be capable of destroying most anything Ching wants destroyed, causing massive damage to targeted areas.

    The Noble Phantasm possesses a secondary ability in which Ching Shih can add additional ships to her armada by commandeering other ships. It is representative of Ching Shih’s efforts in creating, and growing the Red Flag Fleet. Once a ship has been commandeered she can then add it to her armada, but the process takes a serious amount of Magical Energy to convert the ships into being an aspect of her Noble Phantasm. In theory she could commandeer ships that are the Noble Phantasms of other Servants and add them to her armada, but the amount of effort and Magical Energy required to do this would be extreme. If given enough time, Ching Shih could boost the number of ships she possesses to epic proportions, but this will inevitably come at the cost of increasing the rank of her Noble Phantasm and, by extension, the drain on her Magical Energy if she were to ever use the full force of her fleet. Should this occur, the only way Ching Shih might be able to truly manifest the full might of the Red Flag Fleet is through a Master will extraordinary reserves of Mana and possibly tapping into a layline.


    Tyrannical Pirate's Code of Laws
    Pirate Oaths Stained in Blood

    Rank: B
    Type: Anti-Unit
    Range: 1 - 10
    Maximum Number of Targets: 1

    Ching Shih’s control over her pirate fleet at that time was absolute, which was possible not only because of her well maintained political maneuvers which enabled her to rule unopposed but also because of her insistence that all pirates under her command respect a very strict pirate code. Those under her command were given a series of draconic tenants, and failure to follow these rules to the letter was punishable by beatings, mutilation, and execution depending on what law was violated. It is this legacy that made Ching Shih feared among her own crew, and has been supplemented into a Noble Phantasm.

    This Noble Phantasm manifests itself as a manuscript on Ching Shih’s person. This Noble Phantasm is a curse-like effect, that when activated targets those of the Chaotic alignment. Those targeted will be hit with excruciating pain throughout their entire body and must pass a resistance check or be overwhelmed by it. In addition, all Skills that aren’t tied to the body, such as Divinity, will temporarily be sealed while the target is under the effect of Tyrannical Pirate’s Laws. Since this Noble Phantasm only targets those of the Chaotic alignment, if she were to use it upon someone of the Lawful or Neutral alignment it would simply not work.

    Creator's Notes
    Well here is my sheet for Ching Shih, who is one of my favorite historical figures. I've roleplayed her a couple of times in some RPs on TV Tropes and her sheet was considerably simpler back then, but have since expanded on it and fleshed it out to what it is now. Most notably back then she only had one NP, which even then was not as fleshed out as what I have written here. She is one of my favorite character that I've made and I still use her in some other projects.

    Her faceclaim was one I picked as a kind joke on Fate's habit of having Servants in skimpy outfits, and I've honestly kind of grown attached to it. I honestly can' see my version of the character having a different look now. >_>
