    Congratulations, foolish master, for you have summoned the monster that struck fear into the heart of England the likes of which not even Jack the Ripper can compete! I am Assassin, The Halifax Slasher, and the greatest agent of terror this world will ever know!


    Source
    Class: Assassin
    Other Classes: Caster
    True Name: The Halifax SlasherClifford Edwards
    Alignment: Chaotic Evil
    Place of Origin: Historical Fact (?)Halifax, England
    Height: 178 cm.
    Weight: 80 kilo.
    Likes: Fear. The pain of others.Being left alone.
    Dislikes: Mobs.
    Natural Enemy: Humans
    Catalyst: Articles about the Halifax Slasher or ones that make mention to Clifford Edwards.


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


    Class Skills:
    Presence Concealment (EX):
    In effect, this Skill acts akin to one of A+ rank with a unique difference. Should Assassin ever leave one’s sight, it will once more be as though he is under its effects, becoming completely undetectable and invisible until he takes another offensive action.

    Personal Skills:
    Monster of the People (A):
    A being created from the minds of humans trying to cover their own deeds, Assassin represents humanity's urge to harm oneself. People who fail a mental check become prone to intentionally putting themselves in harm's way, self-harm, and blaming others for unfortunate acts of their own doing.

    Paranoia (A):
    Having caused fear, hysteria, and mobbing just from twelve victims, Assassin is quite familiar with instilling paranoia in others and especially himself. On a failed mental check, those affected become convinced they are being followed, that everyone is out to get them, and that an attack is just around the corner. Combined with Assassin’s Presence Concealment and Noble Phantasm, they are utterly convinced they are in constant danger, those of weaker minds breaking down due to the strain.

    The effects of this Skill persist even after Assassin has left an area and can last up to a week without further contact.

    Innocent Monster (B):
    "What do you mean? Why would I ever have a Skill such as that? You must be horribly mistaken. ...I am saying to ignore it!"Having been accused and become a target of malice for the people’s fear and anger in the wake of the attacks, Assassin was perceived as the most likely candidate for the true identity of the Slasher until it was revealed to have never existed. This warping has caused him to take on the Slasher’s identity, the man he was before being completely wiped away to make way for the deranged “killer”.

    Aptitude for Slaughter (Tools) (B):Aptitude for Slaughter (Tools) (False) (C):
    Reported as using anything from mallets to knives to brass knuckles, Assassin has become able to inflict greater damage on humanoid targets through the use of close-range weapons. He has also gained a penchant for carrying them around inside his coat.

    Though he never killed anyone during his crimes, Assassin assures everyone that he is perfectly willing and capable of doing so, to the point he could even be driven to do so should the issue be pressed.
    Never using any tools during life to cause others harm, Assassin only obtains this Skill through Innocent Monster, giving him minor proficiency with them and advantage against humanoid targets when using them.



    Noble Phantasm
    Monster Without a Name: A Wound Without a Weapon (D)
    Anti-Unit
    Assassin’s victims all say the same thing. “I was the one who did this to myself,” becoming both the victim and the perpetrator of their own wounds. This erasure of blame that makes up Assassin’s legend has crystallized itself into his only Noble Phantasm.

    Whenever Assassin attacks an enemy, the method he did so and how it resulted in a wound or damage are completely obscured from his target. Every strike he makes is therefore completely unexpected, making his simplistic fighting-style far deadlier.

    The reason the Noble Phantasm is such a low rank is because its effects can be attained through possession of the Skill Knowledge of the Sowa, a fact Assassin is very irritated by.

    Lore
    In 1838, The Halifax Slasher terrorized England for over a week, causing fear and paranoia to run rampant in the mad search for this elusive attacker. The man was never found, however, though they accused many people of being the Slasher. Fortunately, it eventually came to light that the Slasher was nothing more than a fantasy the first victim took up that other “victims” did as well. As the week came to a close, the fearful masses breathed a sigh of relief, safe in the knowledge that such a being never existed. Which begs the question…

    Who is Assassin?

    “Are you dumb as well as deaf? I believe I’ve made it very clear who I am! I am the terror of Halifax, the embodiment of fear and hysteria! The unseen, unknown beast that lurks in the darkness! …My name?! How many times do I have to say it?! I am the Slasher!”
    Clifford Edwards was a man that history would’ve forgotten if it weren’t for his becoming a footnote related to the attacks of the Halifax Slasher. After being accused of being the Slasher after reporting an attack, and even needing to be escorted home by the police, Clifford fell into a depression. All those people, their anger and vitriol, calling for his death when all he did was try to help ate away at him.

    Even after the Slasher was revealed to be nothing more than a hoax, Clifford still felt them. The judging eyes upon him whenever he stepped outside. The hate hidden away behind amiable masks. The anticipation for him to once more become a target worthy of their hatred. It bored into his mind, leaving him a troubled, paranoid mess of a person unable to trust anyone or even go outside for fear of their glares.

    Until one day when it was finally too much for him to handle, and Clifford Edwards left this world on his own terms, becoming just another victim of the Halifax Slasher.



    Personality
    Assassin is a bombastic individual who makes his presence known whenever he can, going on about his deeds to the point of repetition due to how few of them there are. He comes off as a truly unstable individual who takes joy out of the discomfort and anger of others, letting them know how easily he could tear their lives apart if he so desired.

    In combat, however, this boisterous attitude disappears, replaced by a quiet sadism as he simply walks up to his enemies before striking out at their vitals, only to slip out of their sight to do it again. Rather than with words, Assassin constantly taunts his targets with near fatal blows, waiting until their confusion, fear, and anger reach their peak before finishing them off.

    Assassin is extremely touchy on the subject of his past, completely unwilling to divulge the details to anyone on the time before the attacks. Many believe he is simply embarrassed or spiteful on who he was before, but the truth of the matter is he simply can't remember anything beyond that point, nor can he remember anything afterward. His entire being, memories and all, only fall between November 16th to November 29th, a fact he desperately hides from everyone else for one reason.

    The only thing Assassin fears is the fact that he might not have existed. Surely he did. Those people were just lying! They had to be! He was there just as he is here! He was real! He had to be! If he wasn't, then who is he? Why can't he remember anything! If he's not the Halifax Slasher, then...
    "Who am I?!!!"

    "Oh, just ignore that. Really, it is nothing important at all. Did I ever tell you about my third victim? He was a large man..."


    Relationships

    Jack the Ripper (Assassin): Jack the Ripper was nothing more than a little girl? *cackles* Well, who you are does not matter, as I have surpassed you!

    Halifax 'Hali' Slasher (Caster): You! You are the one! You did this to me! *grabs her by her coat and lifts her off the ground* What did you do to me? Tell me now before I carve you open and... *carefully places her back on the ground, brushing away the wrinkles in her clothes* A slip of the tongue, you understand. I have not the slightest idea what came over me. You know, you remind me of my sixth victim. A woman by the name of... (he finishes his story before finally walking away)

    Jack the Ripper (Berserker): Finally, a true killer! Unseen, unknown, and devoid of humanity! Shall we see which of us is superior?

    Sasaki Kojirou: A ridiculous Skill given to someone who never existed. I should show you how a true killer fights!

    Spring-heeled Jack: A relic of the past! I'm the true agent of terror, and I'll prove it!

    Harry Strauss: A man after my own heart!

    I am at awe at the recent sheets I've seen. El Dorado and the Halifaxsh-Slinging Slasher especially. El Dorado for that mighty gilded edifice he's built literally over himself (as well as the conceit of that Noble Phantasm, which should lend me some insight into my own Berserker sheet), and the Slasher for... for the memes, it turns out. Sorry, I can't turn off a certain rap battle in my mind.

    Archer of Hatred

    "Congratulations, Master! You have summoned the greatest Archer! Yep, I am definitely the best!"


    Class: Archer
    Alignment: Neutral/Evil
    Region: China
    Height: 180cm
    Weight: 57kg
    Likes: Peaches, alcohol, being the best
    Dislikes: Hard work, moon cake, being the second-best
    Talent: Archery, backstabbing
    Armaments: Bow and Arrow
    Natural Enemy: Hou Yi, Chang'e

    Stats

    Str: C
    End: C
    Agi: B
    Mna: E
    Lck: D
    NP: C

    Skills


    Class Skills

    Magic Resistance(C): Cancel spells with a chant below two verses. Cannot defend against Magecraft on the level of High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals.

    Independent Action(B): The ability to remain independent even when rejecting, or being unable to receive a mana supply from the Master. It is possible for Archer to stay in the world for two days without a Master. However, this is the ideal value achieved by maximally conserving mana and avoiding battle and Noble Phantasm usage.

    Personal Skills

    Clairvoyance(C): A skill representing one's Visual ability. A master of the bow, Archer's aim was second only to his Teacher's. Unfortunately, second was not enough.

    Hatred of the Second Best(A): A Skill that only activates when Archer is fighting side by side with an ally of equal or greater power as him. It grants him a bonus to his strength and speed, in exchange for slowly draining his sanity. If this Skill remains active for long enough, there is a chance that Archer will turn against his allies.

    Treacherous Action(B): A Skill that grants Archer bonus damage to any surprise attacks or otherwise dirty tricks he performs, with further extra damage to the target if they have previously believed Archer to be an ally. Unlike other skills dealing with surprise attacks, this one is more suited to spur of the moment impulses rather than calculated actions.



    Noble Phantasm


    Impulse of Heatred and Jealousy
    Taoshu Mujian


    Rank: Anti-Unit, C++

    The weapon Archer used to kill his mentor. Should he be summoned as a Berserker, it would probably retain its original form of a club, but as an Archer, this Noble Phantasm manifests as a specially large arrow made from the wood of a peach tree.

    Its effect is rather straight forward. The bigger the feeling of inferiority that Archer feels compared to his target, the stronger the arrow becomes. Once he releases it, it becomes a black bolt corrupted by his dark feelings that automatically seeks the target of his jealousy, not unlike a guided missile.

    Because of the specifics of the arrow, it is useless if Archer doesn't have any or just weak feelings of inferiority. Furthermore, the arrow can only be used once per target, so Archer has to be careful about when and on who he uses it.



    Background


    Archer is Feng Meng, a figure from Chinese Mythology closely associated with the divine archer Hou Yi. After his wife Chang'e consumed the Elixir of Immortality, Hou Yi realized that he would never again be immortal and would soon die. He resolved to pass his knowledge and skills of archery and hunting to the next generation to ensure that they would live after his death.

    To do so, he decided to take an apprentice. This apprentice, Archer, soon became an expert just like his teacher. But even so, he was still envious of Hou Yi's superior abilities, especially after a fateful archery competition in which Hou Yi killed as many geese as Archer did with his archery despite having a far more difficult target.

    In a fit of rage, Archer ended up using a stick made from a peach tree to bludgeon his master to death. Unlike many would come to think, it was not premeditated murder, but a spur of the moment action that was immediately followed by regret.

    Other myths portray Archer as being the one who forced Chang'e to drink the Elixir by pursuing her, but he swears that he would never do something like this. If that is true or not, it remains to be seen.



    Personality


    Archer is a laid back and relaxed person. He doesn't seem to care much about anything, and approaches every situation with the same snarky attitude and smile. However, the truth is that is an extremely insecure guy.

    He has to be the best, or he doesn't know who he is. This usually leads to him developing a competitive streak, especially when confronted with someone of equal or greater skills than him. Although he will initially play that off as a friendly rivalry in a cool way, with time, Archer's anxieties will slowly eat him away until he snaps, attacking his rival with murderous intent.

    His wish to the grail is simple. A fair Archery competition against his teacher, so that he finally has a chance to prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that he is the greatest Archer ever.

    Saber of Ironic Heroism
    "Saber-class Servant, Lucian of Samosata, at your service! Rejoice, Master, for you have summoned Greece's mightiest hero! Now, let us be off! With the power of friendship by our side, we shall emerge victorious! ...Or something like that. As clichéd as it sounds, it's not bad for an introduction, although I feel like it needs a little more oomph into it."


    Source

    "AHAHAHAH, this is comedy gold right here! Seriously, who would've thought the Grail would summon ME to play hero, of all people!? IT'S THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THE POINT I TRIED TO MAKE IN MY NOVEL! Well, whatever, I'm not complaining. After all, when life presents you with hardships, the best middle finger you can give to life is to roll with it, laughing all the way!"

    Class: Saber
    Other Classes: Rider, Caster, Alter-Ego
    True Name: Lucian of Samosata
    Alignment: Chaotic Good
    Origin: Syria (2nd century AD)

    Parameters:

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

    Likes: satire, comedy, acting, doing things ironically
    Dislikes: People who take life way too seriously, "heroes", mythology, pointless sacrifice
    Talent: Writing satire and parodies, sarcasm, providing tongue-in-cheek criticism
    Natural Enemy: Philosophers, "heroes", life
    Armament: Sword
    Catalyst: His original drafts


    Class Skills
    Riding (C)

    A Class Skill denoting the ability to ride mounts and vehicles. One can flawlessly manage beasts and vehicles if they have received the proper training and adjustments. Most vehicles and animals can be handled with above average skill. However, one cannot ride the likes of Phantasmal Species such as Monstrous Beasts. Having no actual experience riding anything of note, Saber only possesses this Skill due to his class container and the effects of Innocent Monster, which explains this Skill's subpar rank.

    Magic Resistance (C)

    Grants protection against magical effects. Differing from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. Cancel spells with a chant below two verses. Cannot defend against magecraft on the level of High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals. Having little to no experience dabbling in magecraft, Saber only possesses this Skill due to his class container and the effects of Innocent Monster, which explains this Skill's subpar rank.


    Personal Skills
    Innocent Monster (A+)

    An attribute possessed by Servants whose true history and existence have been distorted by the monstrous reputations and gossips they accrued across the course of their life and thereafter, without concern for the actual person's will or appearance. As a consequence, the Servant's abilities and appearance have been rendered to conform to the specifications of their legend. Saber's Saint Graph has been influenced by his most famous work, transforming him into "the ideal hero" which he jokingly satirized in life. Incidentally, his form as the "ideal hero" is also influenced by the location where he is summoned; for example, being summoned in Europe would grant him the appearance of a noble knight, while being summoned in Japan would make him appear as a samurai. However, these changes are strictly limited to physical appearance and does not confer to him the combat capabilities associated with them. His mind is also completely unaffected by this Skill, much to his displeasure.

    Heroic Great Principles (Ironic) (A)

    A set of rules that a mighty hero of legend must always follow, ranging from noble values such as "protect the weak", "fight honorably", and "smile in the face of adversity", to seemingly pointless rules such as "loudly shout the name of your ultimate attack before you use it". As long as Saber carries himself with these rules in mind, this Skill greatly reinforces his combat capabilities, granting him the benefits of several other Skills commonly associated with "heroes" such as Swordsmanship, Tactics, and Charisma​. That said, since Saber does this whole thing "ironically", these values aren't something genuinely instilled within him. This causes a crippling demerit where all of this Skill's effects (as well as his other Skill, Fortuitous Path) would be temporarily sealed whenever he "fails to conduct himself as a hero", stripping him of most of his power.

    Satirization (EX)

    Saber's greatest Skill not as a hero, but as an author. Known as one of history's earliest satirists, Saber frequently mocked philosophers, cult leaders, and fellow authors alike, deconstructing their ideas and spitting on centuries-old values. As a Skill, Saber's mere presence causes other Noble Phantasms within his vicinity to rapidly lose power and transform into a mocking, sarcastic, even comedic imitations of themselves. In maximum effect, legendary sacred swords would turn into flabby rubber swords, unbreakable spears would have the durability of a wooden chopstick, and powerful laser beams would become harmless light shows.

    Fortuitous Path (EX)

    A Skill necessary for any hero to have, the "true essence of heroism": luck (Honor? Chivalry? What even are those?). A cheat Skill that grants Saber the benefits of Plot Armor™ itself, the Skill seemingly alters the world to boost Saber's luck parameter to insane levels. Saber may occasionally come across important information, persons of interest, and other fortuitous occurrences simply by "being there at the right moment". In combat, this Skill doesn't entirely protect Saber from damage (after all, even a hero needs to get hurt every once in a while). However, it protects him from potentially lethal injuries, oftentimes through insane levels of bullshittery; guns would jam at the last minute, arrows would inexplicably curve midair, and attacks with 99.9% accuracy rate would somehow miss.


    Noble Phantasm(s)
    Don't Think Too Hard About It
    Vera Historia

    "You have gone far enough, dastardly villain! Now, your reckoning is upon you! Taste the might of my righteous blade! VERA HISTORIA! HIIYAAAHH!!"

    Type: Anti-Army
    Rank: B
    Range: 1-500
    Max Targets: 100 people

    A True Story, Saber's greatest satirical work. The story mocks outlandish tales that had been reported in ancient sources, particularly those that presented fantastic or mythical events as if they were true. The story repeatedly took the reader's expectations and turned them upside-down, using their usual genre-savviness on the topic of mythology and superstition against them. Summoned as a Saber, this concept embodies his sword, creating "the perfect, unpredictable, unblockable attack". Upon its activation, the sword releases a glorious golden light before Saber unleashes that light as a powerful wave of destruction. While this Noble Phantasm may appear simple enough, those who saw the sword's brilliant glow will have trouble comprehending it. Their minds will erratically think about "all the possible effects a sword Noble Phantasm could have and how to counter them"; does it have a sure-hit effect? can it shatter barriers? reverse cause and effect? rewrite universal laws? cause instant death upon contact? and so on. Unable to comprehend the truth, their minds would instead assume the simplest possible conclusion when confronted with all these possibilities, namely "the sword possesses all of these qualities". Nonetheless, the information overload is so great that by the time the attack hits, the targets could only stand motionlessly as they try and fail to devise countermeasures in their heads. Of course, the truth is much simpler than that. This Noble Phantasm really is just a generic sword-beam with no special characteristics whatsoever. Its basis? "Well, most Sabers have sword-beams, so why shouldn't I have one? Don't think too hard about it", Saber would say with a mildly irritated look on his face. Incidentally, after receiving knowledge from the Grail, Saber decided to take his satire four steps further and unofficially rename this Noble Phantasm "Durengramscalibolg: Unbroken Sword of Promised Piercing Ruin".

    This Noble Phantasm also possesses a passive effect similar to Evaporation of Sanity that stretches people's suspension of disbelief to the absolute maximum while in Saber's vicinity, spreading his "don't think too hard about it" mentality to the masses. These people will gradually have trouble differentiating between the mundane and the amazing. At maximum effect, most humans could see Servants, heroes of legends, fighting in broad daylight and think something like "oh, the neighbor's kids are fighting again, boys will be boys". These people would also be more prone towards reckless, thoughtless actions due to their inability to comprehend the magnitude of said actions (for example, stabbing your annoying neighbor would feel no different than shopping for groceries in your boring, everyday life). In that sense, it can be said that humanity's collective IQ would drop by several points just by being in Saber's presence alone.

    All Will Be Revealed in the Next Episode
    Vera Sequela

    "Hmph, you are a worthy opponent indeed. However, you should know by now that this but a small fraction of my true power..."

    Type: Anti-Unit (Self), "Anti-Sequel"
    Rank: D
    Range: -
    Max Targets: 1

    In his novel, Saber fought mythical beasts, met legendary heroes, and discovered far-off lands. The novel ends abruptly on a cliffhanger promising that even more amazing tales will be revealed in the upcoming sequels... which was never written, something one disappointed fan claimed as "the biggest lie of them all".

    Saber's second Noble Phantasm, representing the conceptual ability to "leave others hanging". A constantly active Noble Phantasm taking the form of Saber's armor. As long as he dons the armor, his Skills and parameters will be obscured from enemies, and they would constantly feel that there is more to Saber than meets the eye. They would feel as if Saber only fought with a tiny fraction of his power, constantly holding back for some unknown reason. These thoughts would endlessly gnaw at the back of their minds, making them unnaturally wary and terrified of Saber's yet-to-be-revealed true power. Of course, the truth is that Saber could fight with every last ounce of his strength and others would still think that he's still hiding his ultimate trump card, just waiting to be revealed in the next battle. All in all, Saber uses this Noble Phantasm as an intimidation tactic, by boasting lines such as "I only need 2% of my true power to defeat you".

    Saber also claims that by releasing this Noble Phantasm's True Name, he could conjure a second sword, an EX+++ rank Anti-World Noble Phantasm with power over 100 times mightier than his first Noble Phantasm. Of course, this is essentially an instant-win button that can destroy any enemy (and the entire world along with it) in one hit. Knowing that, how come no one ever saw him unleash even a tiny fraction of this Noble Phantasm's true power? Well, he has his own reasons... which will be revealed in the next episode.


    Description
    Saber's True Name is Lucian of Samosata, a legendary Greek hero and adventurer. Hm? You never heard of him? Seriously? Well, point is, he's a legendary hero who most definitely existed at some point in time. Saber is a perfect shounen protagonist who believes in the power of friendship, honor, and all that is good in the world. He's prone to saying cheesy, extremely clichéd lines such as "HOLD IT RIGHT THERE, DASTARDLY VILLAIN!" and "YOU'LL NEVER GET AWAY WITH THIS!" while assuming heroic (read: odd and overexaggerated) poses. That said, beyond his affinity for goodness, he doesn't seem to have much else going for him. Truly, an overpowered, plot-armored shounen mc with the personality of a cardboard.Saber's True Name is Lucian of Samosata, a Syrian satirist, novelist, and rhetorician known for his tongue-in-cheek style of writing with which he frequently ridiculed superstition, religious practices, and belief in the paranormal. A carefree, easygoing young man, Saber is the type of person who does everything in a comically serious, exaggerated manner. He frequently tells obvious lies and harshly sarcastic remarks if it means he could better get his point across, with no regard for tact. After all, what are they going to do if they don't like his criticisms? hit him? As long as he frames that criticism in a "heroic" manner, he's still a completely unbeatable, invincible hero.

    While Saber was initially displeased at the prospect of being summoned as the one thing he hates most, he quickly learned to roll with it. He claims that this is the same way he dealt with inconveniences throughout his life; by doing things "ironically" to the point no one is actually sure whether he actually loves or hates said inconvenience anymore. Ask him to eat food he doesn't like? He'll ask for seconds just to savor the taste more. Ask him to do some boring menial chore? He'll do it so well that he would earn the title "CEO of X menial task" with ease. Summon him as a hero? He'll become the greatest hero there ever was. His motto is "When life gives you lemons, furiously make the best damn lemonade you can as a giant middle finger to life".

    If there's one thing that could make Saber break character from his usual "heroic" bravado, it would be people who would willingly throw away their lives for something they perceive as "heroism". While Saber does not hate mythological heroes in itself, he hates how their legends would glorify wars, tragedy, and pointless sacrifices as something "heroic". To him, these values introduced in their legends are dangerous and can only bring misery to the whoever survives the tale. To some extent, this may be the reason why he doesn't mind taking this form as a Servant, a manifestation of a feel-good shounen epic where no one dies, good will always triumph over evil without any effort, tragedy is nonexistent, and absolutely nothing of value is lost. Of course, Saber is aware that his ideals are unrealistic, and life does not always turn out the way he wants it to be. Even so, he insists that everyone should try to enjoy life to the fullest, and to do so, they should work together to realize this dream.


    Lore
    Lucian of Samosata

    Lucian of Samosata (c. 125 – after 180) was a Syrian satirist and rhetorician who is best known for his characteristic tongue-in-cheek style, with which he frequently ridiculed superstition, religious practices, and belief in the paranormal. Although his native language was probably Syriac, all of his works were written entirely in Ancient Greek and translated into Latin. Everything that is known about Lucian's life comes from his own writings, which are often difficult to interpret because of his extensive use of sarcasm. According to his oration The Dream, he was the son of a lower middle class family from the village of Samosata along the banks of the Euphrates in the remote Roman province of Syria. As a young man, he was apprenticed to his uncle to become a sculptor, but, after a failed attempt at sculpting, he ran away to pursue an education in Ionia. He may have become a travelling lecturer and visited universities throughout the Roman Empire. After acquiring fame and wealth through his teaching, Lucian finally settled down in Athens for a decade, during which he wrote most of his extant works. In his fifties, he may have been appointed as a highly paid government official in Egypt, after which point he disappears from the historical record. Lucian often ridiculed public figures, such as the Cynic philosopher Peregrinus Proteus in his letter The Passing of Peregrinus and the fraudulent oracle Alexander of Abonoteichus in his treatise Alexander the False Prophet. Lucian's treatise On the Syrian Goddess satirizes cultural distinctions between Greeks and Syrians and is the main source of information about the cult of Atargatis.

    A True Story

    Lucian's most famous satirical work, parodying numerous outlandish tales that had been reported in ancient sources, particularly those that presented fantastic or mythical events as if they were true. It is the earliest known work of fiction to include travel to outer space, alien lifeforms, and interplanetary warfare. It has been described as "the first known text that could be called science fiction". However, the work does not fit into typical literary genres: its multilayered plot and its characters have been interpreted as belonging to science fiction, fantasy, satire or parody, and have been the subjects of scholarly debate.

    The novel begins with an explanation that the story is not at all "true", and that everything in it is a complete and utter lie. The narrative begins with Lucian and his fellow travelers journeying out past the Pillars of Heracles. Blown off course by a storm, they come to an island with a river of wine filled with fish and bears, a marker indicating that Heracles and Dionysus have traveled to this point, and trees that look like women. Shortly after leaving the island, they are caught up by a whirlwind and taken to the Moon, where they find themselves embroiled in a full-scale war between the king of the Moon and the king of the Sun over colonization of the Morning Star. Both armies include bizarre hybrid lifeforms. The armies of the Sun win the war by clouding over the Moon and blocking out the Sun's light. Both parties then come to a peace agreement. Lucian then describes life on the Moon and how it is different from life on Earth.

    After returning to Earth, the adventurers are swallowed by a 200-mile-long (320 km) whale, in whose belly they discover a variety of fish people, against whom they wage war and triumph. They kill the whale by starting a bonfire and escape by propping its mouth open. Next, they encounter a sea of milk, an island of cheese, and the Island of the Blessed. There, Lucian meets the heroes of the Trojan War, other mythical men and animals, as well as Homer and Pythagoras. They find sinners being punished, the worst of them being the ones who had written books with lies and fantasies, including Herodotus and Ctesias. After leaving the Island of the Blessed, they deliver a letter to Calypso given to them by Odysseus explaining that he wishes he had stayed with her so he could have lived eternally. They then discover a chasm in the ocean, but eventually sail around it, discover a far-off continent and decide to explore it. The book ends abruptly with Lucian stating that their future adventures will be described in the upcoming sequels, a promise which one disappointed fan described as "the biggest lie of all".


    Relationships
    Heroes related to the Trojan War:
    "Ayy, if it isn't you guys! Fancy meeting you again! It's me, you know, uh... that guy from that time in that place. Remember me yet? Eh? Eh? *winkwinknudgenudge* come on, don't leave me hanging here..."

    Odysseus:
    "Hm? You don't want eternal life, and you would rather spend time with your wife and son at home instead? I see, my apologies, I can certainly see where you're coming from. Ah, war really did take everything from you, did it?"

    Ben Jonson, Hans Christian Andersen:
    "Man, these guys are the best! I could spend hours with them discussing literature and pointing out all the stupid, outdated clichés plaguing it for the last few hundred years or so!"

    William Shakespeare, Franz Kafka, Osamu Dazai:
    "Jeez, don't you think human history had its fair share of tragedies already? You can't drown in sorrows forever, you know. Maybe you should try writing comedy, once in a while."

    Johann Adam Weishaupt:
    "So you tried to bring down the old gods by... creating a cult? Er, isn't that kind of... counterproductive?"

    EMIYA (Archer), EMIYA (Assassin):
    "Sure, sign up for an eternity's worth of dead-end, unpaid labor in pursuit of some warped idea of heroism you just can't let go, what could possibly go wrong with that? I get that the Counter Force can be a bitch, but damn, I wonder if it's worth it..."

    Sieg, Shirou Emiya:
    "Remember kids; blind heroism is a big no-no! Don't throw your lives away so readily, no matter who tries to tell you otherwise. Grow up, explore the world, do the things you like, maybe settle down and build a loving family... the world has so much to offer, and it'd be a shame to miss out on them just because of some pointless war."


    Creator's Notes/Fun Facts
    Please don't take this sheet too seriously. I finished all of this in a few hours, and I'm pretty sure that's what Lucian would have wanted as well. Also don't forget to click on the description section to see his real personality, if you haven't.

    - Does he seem absurdly busted to you? Wanked to heaven and back? Too many As and EXes? Well, that's... kind of the point of his character. He can become an invincible, undefeatable hero as long as he plays the part, but the second he drops the act, revealing his true feelings and assuming the identity of "Lucian the satirist" instead of "Lucian the hero", he loses most of his powers and becomes nothing more than your average guy with a sword, which he's not even proficient in using.

    - While his Saber and Rider form is him playing the part of "the perfect hero/main character", his Caster version would most likely be a Halloween alt where he parodies stereotypical DnD bards/warlocks instead ("I ROLLED A NAT 20 ON MAGECRAFT! I USE AN ANTI-PLANET, ANTI-WORLD, AND ANTI-HUMANITY SPELL TO KILL ALL ENEMIES IN ONE HIT!")

    - Reading A True Story, Lucian sounds like a guy who said "screw it" and crammed every single possible cliché into his book just to point out how stupid they all look like. It's one of those works where you just gotta turn your brain off and enjoy the show. Then again, in a way, his efforts backfired; instead of realizing how stupid their myths and legends sounded, the book just made him rich and famous.

    - In a similar vein, it's nice to turn my brain off and write a complete joke sheet once in a while. What kind of stupidly generic, overpowered shounen trope am I going to put into this guy? All of them.

    - In a more serious setting, I could see him as a Crypter's Servant in a Lostbelt where his wildest dreams exist as reality; an extremely straightforward, simplistic feel-good fantasy where humans could never know misery, one where sadness, tragedy, and pointless sacrifices are nonexistent, and justice will always prevail effortlessly. In this world, he would effectively be considered as a "hero" of the Lostbelt, meaning he could freely fight Chaldea with his bullshit powers without being considered anything less than heroic and having his powers stripped.

    Lucian: I hate him. I love him. I love to hate him (as a representation of the extremely bland noble hero. As a person, I'm all for him). He represents everything that I hate about heroic stories, and I love that that's the point he's making. It's just so much fun to read through this sheet about this guy who I can get behind to an extent. I just imagine him constantly speaking and playing it up for a non-existent audience. He's great and a great Servant.

    Of course, my first thought was on how to kill him, which sounds as easy as making him break character. Thing is, with this guy's devotion to ironic heroism, it would take quite a bit of planning in its own right, especially while under the effects of his second NP. Honestly, the best way to kill him would just be to have the master or some random person come up and stab him. Even if they are attacking him, hurting someone so much weaker than him isn't very "heroic", especially if it's the second option and they're mind-controlled, making them an innocent victim. Other methods include waiting until stopping his attack is impossible and telling him you surrender, as attacking someone who already gave up isn't "heroic" either. I'm sure there are other methods, but that's where my mind went.
    "Ah! My one weakness! Being stabbed!"

    *Enemy tries to stab him from behind and somehow comically slips on a banana peel that was definitely there the whole time*

    Lucian: "Whoops, are you okay there? You should watch where you're going so you don't slip on this randomly-placed-yet-oddly-inconspicuous-looking-banana-peel here! Oh, and be careful handling that knife! You could definitely hurt someone with it if you're not careful! So as the noble hero that I am, I'm confiscating this knife to prevent people potentially getting hurt! Have a nice day, random citizen! Ahaha!"

    Wait, I thought Kaguyahime was the first work of fiction that survives to this day that depicts some science fiction tropes?

    You honor me! But please, I just like to give more incentive for people to post their craft because it's always a pleasant surprise to see what they come up with. But seriously, thanks a lot Rey
    And I'm still trying to catch up to the older sheets, actually... Shame on me, I haven't been able to read much lately. BUT I'LL MAKE UP FOR THAT WITH SOME NEW COMMENTS.


    "The Halifax Slasher": *chef kiss* Gosh I love this concept. The sheet is a very good read and everything just kinda clicks, you know? And merely by accident I discovered that there was an actual person behind the lore this time... A good easter egg for those who keep their hands in their cursor hahaha. But seriously! I liked both of your renditions of this figure, you really milked it for all its worth.

    Feng Meng: I liked very much the "this man sucks" quality that emanates from this sheet. It's such an interesting figure that gets overshadowed by the much more likeable Hou Yi or even his wife by proxy. I think that you managed to make a footnote of a character to become a quite decent Servant considering the fleshing out you had to do. A well done job indeed, man!

    Lucian of Samosata: I want to live in this sheet, I can't possibly think of a greater praise than this. So fun to read! Such a good figure to booth. Your sheets are always a wild ride and this ain't an excepction... I think that merely for that charming quality of an "everyday-hero" and the way you presented this dude it deserves a place in my favorite Servants that came from you.

    Wait. You don't compulsively drag your cursor slowly across every line of text in case they decided to throw in something weirdhidden? Shoot, I thought everyone did! I'm a freakgenius!

    After I posted Hali, the thought of the Assassin form just kept bouncingbonking around inside my head. What would that look like? As it happens, probably what people were expecting from my original go atdebut of the Slasher. Still, I like to think I put my own spin oninsanity in him.

    A few ideas, but nothing really written yet. I typically just wait to be struck by something. However, studying for Mr. Zombie did point me to one I'd be interested in making.

    Not really. The only mage characters I've made are for stories. The only ones I'd post would probably be Shinya Kaburu and Wolfgang Anderson, but Shinya's backstory is basically a spoiler of major plot points for the story he's in and Wolfgang just needs to be more fleshed out. Basically, I don't think mage creation is something I'll be posting.

    I posted this sheet over on the Monthly Servant Sheet challenge and I don't think there's any rules about cross-posting your own sheet so here it is. If there is a rule, let me know and I'll delete it from here.

    Skills


    Class Skills
    Existence Outside the Domain E- (???) Class skill associated with Foreigners. Denotes a being that descended from the void of outer space or exists stringently outside of the human order. However, due to the unique existence of Dec’s history and insanity, the very nature of this skill is brought into question.
    Madness Enhancement A A class skill usually attributed to Berserker’s. However, due to Foreigner’s innate insanity, he has earned this skill. Yet, he lacks the typical attribute boosts seen of this class skill. While one is generally still able to communicate with him, his ability to seemingly conclude or understand anything not in relation to his “delusion” is rendered obsolete.


    Personal Skills
    Mind of the Tethered C This skill allows Foreigner to get brief insights into the thoughts of individuals (or rather briefly skim the outer layer of the consciousness of those around him) but this requires him to be “perfectly still”, allowing him to avoid any potential danger with enough forewarning but makes it so that he is at risk all the same.
    Innocent Monster B A skill possessed by Servants whose true history and existence have been distorted by the monstrous reputations and gossips they accrued across the course of their life and thereafter, without concern for the actual person's will or appearance. Francis E. Dec’s life both during and after has been attributed to his persecutory and paranoid rants over the nature of the world around him and history has deemed him as someone who’s insanity is “something to be made fun of and not taken seriously” and exploitation of Dec that came about as a result of his life. An image society only tends to remember him as without taking heed to his message hidden with the madness and only as the insanity-riddled man as he seemed to be.
    Delusions of the Last Human E~A++ A skill unique to Foreigner and yet a unique subset of the skill held by Abigail Williams' Mass Hysteria. A passive and always active skill that allows Foreigner to actively degrade the insanity of “non-humans” in his general vicinity. This effect starts off small in the beginning. Perhaps the feeling of being watched or feeling followed by unknowable forces. Then the voices began to whisper inside your head, as you become increasingly paranoid of both your surroundings and those around you. The voices get louder, you begin to see things that aren’t there, you begin to distrust those around you. Fear grips you as you realize that being outside simply isn’t safe in more. You isolate yourself as your mind begins to break down from the constant exposure and the auditory and visual hallucinations worsen as visions of a bleak future haunts you, taunts you…

    delusions
    One’s mind, unable to handle the fierce assault of madness, begins to falter under the oppressive weight of this “reality”.

    Until the mind itself becomes nothing more.


    Only those deemed as a “true human” or rather, one not under the control of the “Computer God” seemed to be immune to this skill. In the eyes of Foreigner, he is the only human left free of the sinister Computer God's control and all others are merely a puppet for said ‘evil god’ to make use of. Therefore, all humans and even Servants are in direct danger from this skill, given long enough exposure. This skills directly attacks and corrodes the minds of those associated with the “Human Order” or, in short, it makes it so that those exposed to this skill not only develop a psyche that goes against the standard human mentality and propels them into a “abnormal way of thinking” but those exposed and not able to endure corrosion are left in a vegetable state.

    A human shaped puppet with no thoughts or will of their own. In Dec’s mind, this is him simply freeing the masses from their tether to the Computer God, that it had maliciously planted within every human and was sending the thoughts and

    moon cell
    sensations experienced by humans to the ‘Brain Bank’ on the Moon controlled by the Computer God, and their paranoid and eventual comatose state simply them “getting used to be being free once more”. An innocent and benevolent thought one could say, if not for the fact this act resulted in the exact opposite result.

    Servants with high levels of Magic Resistance can withstand this mental assault but even they will too begin to come under the effects of this skill given enough time. In conjunction with his Noble Phantasm, this skill becomes even more disturbing as it is able to spread to those outside of his general vicinity with those “infected” with this thought virus able to pass it on to the unsuspecting masses.


    Noble Phantasms

    Delusionary War with the Malicious God
    Secret Containment Policy


    Noble Phantasm
    Foreigner’s Noble Phantasm, which is a true crystallization of Francis E. Dec’s crusade to combat the Computer God and its influence on reality. This allows Foreigner to “cancel out” the influences, blessing, technologies or even curses of the malicious deity. Or rather, it allows Dec to neutralize Servants or individuals that have a divine, supernatural or technological background. After all, all foreign deities seen in myths and technologies used predominantly by the masses are merely “aspects or Avatars” of the Computer God itself, therefore giving him the ability to affect them as a crusader in the war to free humanity and “contain” them. Servants with the ‘evil’ attribute have their parameters further decreased.

    However, this Noble Phantasm can not be used with the significant use of magical energy or without Command Seal as it is likely that Foreigner wouldn't be able to be sent into a battlefield to use it in the first place without very convincing persuasion on the part of a Master. Another weakness of this Noble Phantasm is that it’s duration is extremely short and is not long lasting like his passive skill, meaning that a very physically abled servant with an innate high magic resistance able to resist both his NP and passive skill for a time or one from long distance can put an end to Foreigner with relative ease.

    Noble Phantasm

    rants
    Foreigner’s Noble Phantasm represents his final plans in freeing humanity and saving the ‘universe’ from the evil of the so-called “Gangster communist Computer God”. This represents his 26 manuscripts pinned by Dec in life. To awaken the mind of the masses and for them to observe the grand conspiracy taking place right before their very eyes.

    This Noble Phantasm can only be used in congruence with his passive skill, which allows for him to expand its range and allows for it to become “contagious”, passing outside of his initial limited range, affecting person to person. A thought virus in every sense of the word. And by its nature it spreads at the same efficacy and virility of any contagious virus. Spreading by distance, contact, communication, through technological means, all unknowingly by those who are infected. In Dec’s eyes, this is him finally freeing humanity and fighting back against the Computer God. But from an outsider’s perspective, this can only be seen as a wide scale attack on humanity and the Human Order itself. Turning humanity into a similar mental state as that of Foreigner in life before succumbing to a vegetative state, free of all thoughts.

    vessels
    A salvation in the sense of the word and the perfect state to allow all of humanity become 'free'.

    However, this is perhaps not even Dec’s true Noble Phantasm but has been “hijacked” in some way to further the goals of a malicious force. Whether it is born of his own mind or an outside force used to perpetuate its own agendas is unknown.

    Character




    Biography/History
    Francis E. Dec was an American lawyer and outsider writer who was best known for his typewritten diatribes that he independently mailed and published from the late 1960s onward. His works are characterized by highly accusatory and vulgar attacks against groups of people and conglomerates under the control of a vague force known as the "Mad Deadly Worldwide Communist Gangster Computer God" or Computer God for short, who had humanity under it’s complete control and only he was capable of combating it and it’s malicious assassins sent after him in an effort to silence and halt his mission from saving humanity. Henceforth living as recluse and mass-mailing wild, paranoid typewriter-keyed rants around the country and world, living in fear as a target “individual”.
    Indeed, Dec’s crusade against this malicious God is something truly worthy of being deemed as a cause worth fighting for.

    If the Computer God was real that is.

    In reality, the Computer God that Dec viewed as his enemy was nothing more than the delusions of a tragic figure struggling with extreme paranoid, delusionary schizophrenia. Unable to escape from this reality he had orchestrated for himself, and deemed himself as the “only human” left free of this illusion’s control when it was in fact he who wasn’t truly in control the entire time.

    A man afflicted by the disease of the mind, writing the experiences of his own reality he was trapped in.

    A mental illness so strongly manifested that it ravaged the mind to the point that Dec would slowly but surely become more and more isolated from the very humanity he wanted to save with his own mind. An illness so strong that it might as well, had become “reality”. Oftentimes, it is the most mundane horrors that afflict humans that often inspire fear the most.

    The loss of one’s mind.

    The fear of not knowing what is what.

    The fear of being trapped in one’s own mind can inspire true terror, especially when one doesn’t even realize it themselves.

    This is the sad and horrible existence that is Francis E. Dec, the Last Human.


    …However, several questions begin to surface.

    In particular, why has Francis E. Dec been summoned? A servant of Dec’s stature shouldn’t be capable of being summoned outside of being a Phantom and yet, he has manifested completely as a servant, albeit a physically weak one. For what purpose is he here?

    Dec would answer, “to save humanity” however his existence itself proves contrary to that very statement.

    For what reason would the Counter Force or Master manifest such a servant who’s very threat would serve as an existential threat to humanity, if left unchecked? Unless it wasn’t the Counter Force.
    outer god?
    Perhaps, Dec’s mental state has truly created an enemy for him to battle against in the form of the “Computer God”?

    Or perhaps, there is a more sinister intent from an outside force behind his summoning. A possibility that this so-called Computer God is no mere delusion but is something far more malicious; set on bringing “salvation” to humanity by any means necessary. After all, while his rants were indeed insane, they held grains of truth to them relevant to the modern day as his writing speaks to a feature of technical delusions that became increasingly prominent in the second half of the twentieth century with the further advent of technology and his writings most certainly warned of this. Dec's screeds are emblematic in their careening, amplified panic over imperious yet chimerical powers that seemingly are everywhere all the time and yet can never be fully confronted or understood.

    If this is the case, who’s to say that the Computer God isn’t real?

    Perhaps merely hiding it’s true form…?

    Personality/Character
    A man, full of potential lost to his madness. However, one can have a conversation with him to find him to be a rather intelligent, albeit paranoid individual who often goes on tangents, making his insanity all the more tragic and horrific in retrospect. Though the only way to have a conversation with him would prove dangerous to that person as coming into his range could prove costly in the long run. Especially if one were to “fall into his delusion”. Though a Master may very well be immune to this as Dec may view them as another ally who freed themselves of control of the Computer God, thus viewing the Master as a “true human” like himself

    However, in spite of his mental illness, Francis E. Dec, while he may have been seen as propaganda and plans from the Computer God that haunted his mind, he managed to inspire and entertain others by creating something worth reading, appreciating and worth remembering for decades to come while in battle with his mind itself. A feat worthy of praise and in of itself.

    Baggage: An obvious apostle of the Computer God. Avoid at all costs

    Frankenstein: Won’t be fooled. Won’t be taken in by the Frankenstein controls even if the Computer God put it into the form of a beautiful woman.

    Any Russian servants: Communists, therefore under the direct control of the Computer God. Avoid at all costs.

    Any other Foreigner servants: Direct ‘Avatars’ of the Computer God. Can feel it’s ‘evil’ taint on them the most. Especially avoids to make sure he isn’t assassinated.

    BB (Mooncancer): Absolutely terrified. Believes her to be the Computer God itself in a human, physical form. Dec's enemy is right before him and yet all he feel is abject terror.

    "She must be it! She must be! Just look at the way she--it's dressed?!" Dec says in relation to Mooncancer BB's second form, confusing "gyaru" for "gangster"

    About the Holy Grail
    An obvious trick by the Computer God to take a wish on the Grail so that the Frankenstein controls can enable the Computer God to take direct control of him. Has no interest as a result




    Authors Note on this Incredibly Mundane sheet

    This is my first time actually doing the Monthly servant sheet challenge so when I found out that the pretty broad theme was going to "horror" I wanted to do something the expressed what I like to call "mundane horrors" or horrors that we and those around us have to deal with eventually in our lives and ones that are common enough to be perceived as mundane but still terrifying in concept. In that regard, I chose to go with mental illness or the 'terror of the mind'. Now this sheet isn't a dig at those with mental illness mind you but personally find the idea of your mind wasting away and actively working against to be one of the most terrifying things a human can go through. The mind is what makes us who we are and for it not only go away but to actively hinder and destroy you? That's some existential dread if I ever heard it and things like Alzheimer's and schizophrenia signify that for me and yet I still wanted to show that people can still be brilliant in their own way despite that. The 2nd form of horror is in relation to how the servant itself functions and expands on the first.

    If you read the sheet, I used the term "thought virus" or i.e a "logic virus" and if you every played Halo or know any of it's lore you can realize how terrifying that is in concept and one that I hopefully managed to get across in the sheet. Mr. Dec here is basically a walking talking "thought virus" and he doesn't even realize it and actively believes he's doing good in some capacity, which is scary in of itself and that is on top of the man being trapped within his own mind. As for the Foreigner class selection, I personally always liked the class but it being limited to merely being connected to an Outer God to be rather limiting ( I know we got servants like MHXX and Voyager but still) and my definition of Foreigner has always been something that is inherently antithetical or outside the 'Human Order' itself not merely in relation to an Outer God even if that counts under that definition. So I made Francis condition is rather vague. Is the 'Computer God' merely a self constructed delusion on Francis's part or is it actually some Outer entity manipulating him behind the scenes in some respect or hell maybe a bit of both? Who knows. I'm a bit self conscious posting this given all the high quality sheets already here but screw it.

    As to why I chose Francis E. Dec? Well, he was different for one thing and I had saw a documentary on him this week actually and as I was watching I was like, "I can make a servant based on that". And I'll admit Dec and his rant is admittedly hilarious and yet poetic and very sad as well when you learn the deeper context and really illustrates how scary mental illness in my eyes can be. And while I generally had this idea knocking around in my head for the past week, I basically did this sheet in one sitting. No beta, we die like (wo)man.
